Mortals and Demigods

Snobby cheerleaders, jerky jocks and shy nerds meet (and fall in love) with the demigods of Camp Jupiter and Camp Half Blood


20. Ace Adams Part 2

Ace's POV

I entered the school library and was nicely greeted by Mrs Patts the librarian. Girls who were reading in one aisle giggled when they saw me. And being Mr Goodguy, I smiled back at them, which made them squeal as if a fictional character was right in front of them. I looked around, finding the 'demon girl' who judo-flipped the whole wrestling club in 3 minutes. My eyes landed on her. She was sitting on a table studying furiously. I was surprised to see her hair down, straight but wavy.

“Have you come here to study, Adams?” She said while looking down at her textbook. Her left cheek was resting on her left hand as she wrote on the other.

“I study when I'm bored. I came here to see you.” I replied. Her dark eyes looked up to me, clearly annoyed. But her red face didn't show any sign of annoyance. I smirked and took a seat in front of her. For a good five minutes, I just stared at her as she jotted notes.

“Will you leave?”


“Why not?”

“Cause I don't want to.”

The roof was my place to hang out and brood. I winced as the sun-light hit my eye. A cool breeze blew making my blonde hair flutter. I was sitting on the ledge looking out to the sky. Lots of thing came into my mind. School, my parents. Reyna.

“ACE ADAMS!” A loud, angry voice yelled out. Speaking of the devil that crawled out of hell. I turned my head, seeing Reyna red in anger.


“Why did you tell Coach McNeil that I have a bruised arm!?” I jumped off the ledge and walked over to her with my hands in my pockets. I slouched down and leaned in until our noses touched. Her eyes were wide and her cheeks started turning red.

“I didn't want you to get hurt.” I tell quietly. She closed her eyes, her eyebrows twitching.

“It's your fault I didn't get to play basketball,” She shoved me with one mighty arm. “What the Pluto is wrong with you?!” She growled.

“I hate you.” She muttered. I smirked, closing my eyes.

“No you don't.”

“Excuse me?” I chuckled lightly.

“You love me.” Again, her eyes turned wide as her cheeks were slowly heating up.

“Argh!” She stomped away, closing the roof-top door loudly. See? She didn't deny her feelings.

Reyna's POV

Well, here I am sitting on a bench waiting for my friends to pick me up. I just hope they didn't let Hazel drive. She drives like a sloth who is riding on a turtle on a treadmill. While waiting, I let some thoughts into my head. The nerve of that Adams. He thinks that I love him? That's just messed up. I mean, he may not be wrong but- ARGH!

“Hey Reyna.” I looked up, seeing Piper smiling down at me. Her kaleidoscope eyes twinkling.

“H-hey Piper.”

“What's wrong?” She asks sitting down next to me.


“Is it a guy?” Man this girl is good. She IS a daughter of Aphrodite. She could smell someone in love a thousand miles away probably. UGH! I'm not in love with Ace! Gods, I called him by his first name.

“Uh Reyna?”


“You didn't answer my question.”

“Right, sorry.”

“So about that Ace guy. You seem pretty close.”

“We are NOT close," I protested. "He's a stalker and a full-time pervert!” My phone suddenly rang. The sound of This Is War by 30 Seconds to Mars pierced my ears.

I tapped the call button and said, “Hello?”

“Reyna! You know who I am right? It's-” I groaned. How did he get my number? I tapped the end button, disconnecting the call.. Piper looked at me in confusion.

“Who was that?”

“That was Ace.” I replied. Piper nodded. “You know Percy thinks that guy is a demigod. He felt Poseidon's presence when in the same room as him.”

I shrugged. “I don't think he's a demigod. He might be a mortal who could see through the mist.”

“Or, as Chiron said, 'he might be a legacy or a mortal that has been blessed by one of the gods.' ” Now that I think of it, I did see the pool respond to Ace's raised hand.

“Legacy of Poseidon?” I asked looking at her. She shook her head.

“Legacy of Neptune.”

“Are you sure about this, Percy?” Percy and I were both hiding from Ace who was walking on the school grounds, sucking on a lollipop. Percy nodded, holding a black leather sack and rope.

“Yes, miss praetor. Now you grab him, shove him in the sack and I'll-”

“We are NOT putting him in that sack, Perseus.” I yelled/whispered. He winced hearing his full name. “Okay, okay. Why don't we put him in a box?”

“Or we could just ask him to come with us.” Percy frowned.

“Why didn't I think of that?”

“Because you're a Seaweed Brain.”

“Hey! Only Annabeth gets to call me that.” I smirked, crossing my arms. Percy pouted dropping the sack and the long rope.

“Fine. Let's go.” Once we turned around, we stood there face to face with the Ace Adams.

“May I help you?” He asked his hands in his pockets. Percy scratched his neck.

“Uh yeah. Can you come with us for a while? We need help finding a relative.” Ace raised his eyebrows as his head turned to me. I shrugged, “Yeah. He goes to a different school.”

“Why would you guys need help?”

“Um. It's because he's very hard to find considering all the...... potatoes he's holding.” Percy explained stupidly. I mentally face-palmed. Is this guy seriously dating Annabeth? The daughter of the Greek wisdom goddess? Ace looked at him weirdly.

“That makes sense.” He said. I perked up.

“Uh.. It does? I mean! It does. So can you help us?” Ace shrugged his shoulders. “Sure.”

“Why are we going all the way in the middle of nowhere?”Ace asked. The three of us were in Percy's blue Maserati Spyder. We drove out of the city, towards Long Island. Percy and I glanced at each other. We both decided to ignore the blonde hottie. NO, I DID NOT SAY THAT. My face was probably red and my teeth were gritted. Ace noticed my discomfort and smirked, placing his hands on my head.

“Are you thinking about me, Reyna?” I glared at him, slapping his hands.

“No way in Pluto,” Percy said smirking. “Are you guys dating?”

I shook my head, my face burning up. “N-no.”

“Denial.” I heard Ace whisper.
