Hello everyone! I've wanted to do this for a while now. If anyone wants to do a better version of this they can, because this isn't very good and it's very drabble-ish.

Disclaimer- I don't own PJO.


"I'm tellin ya. She won't let me do ANYTHING. God she's so annoying. She's all like…" My friend Jake rambled on. I zoned out. If anyone said anything else insulting about their parents, I was going to snap. I was having a bad day to begin with, but this was just taking it to a whole nother level. It all started this morning with Matt Sloan (yes the same one from 7th grade, he transferred. Great.) directing your mom jokes at me all morning. Then I was attacked by a hellhound before math, got a buttload of homework in science, and now I was listening to my friends gripe about how their parents "treated them like a baby' or "won't let them do anything". I wondered why teenagers could be so mean to them. I mean, I may still have a little bit of a grudge against my dad, but we'd made up and I got to see him more often. And he was a god, so, yeah… Ugh, I'm rambling.

"God I hate them. They-"

"Shut up guys." I snapped, interrupting their 'oh so important' conversation.

"Geez Perce. Do you have a problem with this conversation?" Jake asked.

"Yes. Yes I do. How can you all just talk like that? They're your parents! They do a lot for you guys, and they care about you!"

"But they don't let us do anything fun!" Cindy, Jake's girlfriend complained.

"Well has it ever occured to you that maybe they don't want you to get hurt?" I said back.

"Stop being such a mama's boy."

"Oh no." I said, standing up. The lunchroom was too busy eating/talking to notice. "You can complain when one of your parents had to leave before you were born, and you've only seen 5 or 6 times in your life. You can complain when your mom gives up everything so you could be safe and happy. You all have two parents at home. You come home to see your dad everyday- You know what? Nevermind. Forget it." I turned on my heel and walked out of the lunch room leaving my shocked friends behind.

Thanks for reading.
