I decided to start packing my suitcase for college (I still cant believe I got in, though the others aren't surprised). Leo didn't want us to start until he was done making the car, and he won't tell us what kind.
I packed the necessary things - clothes, toothbrush and toothpaste, etc.
Then I packed the necessities for a demigod - my drakon-bone sword, nectar, ambrosia, yankee hat (it started working again after the war, and the letter said magical items are welcomed), etc.
And then I packed my carry-on in a backpack. Nectar, ambrosia, my dagger Percy gave me on my 18th birthday, books on various subjects, magazines on architecture, iPod touch, earbuds, phone (don't worry... won't attract monsters!), and laptop.
I heard a knock on the door.
"Annabeth, you ready?" I heard Percy say through the door. "Yeah, coming." I grab my suitcase and backpack, and head out the door.
As soon as I'm outside I let out a small gasp. On the outside, it looks like a 2014 Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet, but on the inside, it has a lot of room, like an RV, with leather seats, tables, 50 in. flat-screen TV's, and our own quarters - just like the Argo II used to have.
"Like the car?" Leo asks with a smile on his face.
"This is a car? I thought it was the Argo II on wheels!" I reply, still looking around in awe.
"Yup." He said, popping the p.
"Leo, just making sure, but you know how to drive, right?" I asked. I haven't seen him drive in a long time.
"I don't need to. It drives itself!" He replied, putting on a commercial voice as if he was trying to sell something. He was still smiling like crazy, and I knew he was excited because his nose burst into flames. He quickly put it out with his hand, and muttered "Good thing this thing is fire-proof."
"Hey, guys what's- wow. Leo. Just, wow." Percy said as he came in with his bag.
"I know. I am amazing." Leo said, grinning. Percy rolled his eyes, and everyone else came in. Jason, Piper, Frank, Hazel and Reyna.
I went to my room, and looked around. There was a desk, bed, TV, and two shelves filled with books. In the corner, there was a miniature fountain with a window beside it, and the fountain had golden drachmas for iris-messaging.
After I unpacked, I went into the "main car," I guess you could call it. I saw Percy, Jason and Frank all sitting on one of the couches, watching the show Arrow(Really good show!). I go and sit next to Percy, and he takes my hand, not taking his eyes off the TV.
"Have you guys seen your rooms, yet?" I asked.
"Yeah. Leo does know that this is like, a one day trip, right?" Jason exclaimed. We sit there, watching the show, until Piper, Hazel and Reyna show up.
I go and hang out with them for the rest of the trip if I'm not hanging out with Percy.
Before I know it, Leo is saying "5 miles, 2 miles. We're on campus. I look out the window, and gasp. This place looks even more amazing than what the brochure shows you! Percy comes into my room, and puts an arm around my shoulder.
I hear him tell me:
