21. Caleb Buckert

I do not own Taylor Swift's Sparks Fly

---

It was Karaoke night in River Deer High; 7:30. The school has organized a party just for Juniors and Seniors. Of course, several students showed up. Though, some students complained about being stucked with 'normal' people. Jessica Evans and Lindsay Flemming dragged their friend Annabeth Chase with them to the night. Caleb Buckert, who had a not-so-secret crush on the blonde daughter of Athena, also went to to event hoping to sing a love song to Annabeth. A cresent moon was up, shining down on the building. The event was held in the gym (duh), food and drinks were provided by the student council.

Caleb Buckert's POV
"What will you be singing, Jess?" I heard Lindsay ask Jessica.
Jessica replied with a shrug, "Don't know. I'll just randomly pick one from my playlist." Our group stood near the podium, easily seeing the DJ's table and large speakers. I looked over to the beauty beside Linday. Ahh, Annabeth Chase. Just hearing her name sends butterfiles to my stomach. Tonight, her blonde curls were in a braid (think Elsa with blonde hair and grey eyes). She wore an orange shirt with greek words in them. I tried translating it before and I got 'Camp I will drink your blood'. Bet that's not it.
"How bout' you, Caleb?" Whoops, ADHD acting up. I turned to Lindsay.
"Uhh, probably Fireflies by Owl City." The red head nodded, looking a little disappointed. Hmm. Lindsay was also very pretty with straight and natural red hair and hazel brown eyes. She also had a great personality, bubbly and kind. She's just not my type. I heard a high squeak coming from the speakers. I turned my attention to the stage and saw Mr Mello (AN: I can't think of other last names. So I chose the fake name of one of my fave anime characters 3) the principal.
"Good evening Red River!" The speakers boomed. The crowd greeted him with a 'hello'.
"Well, shall we get started? Who's up first?" A girl, I recognized as Emma Souh ran up the stage and took an extra mic from the DJ.
*Spongebob narrator voice* oOoO several boring songs later OoOo
It was nearly 10:00. The crowd was still alive. I sat down on a table at the back, chewing on some cookies I packed. Lindsay got off the stage after singing 'Love Good Time' from her favourite anime. Geez, what's with her and fandoms? I don't get fandoms.
"Alright, this will be our last performance for the night," Mr Mello announced. The crowd burst out with lots of aww's and what?!'s.
"Settle down! Now give a round of applause for Annabeth Chase!" The crowd was surprised, but not as surprised as me. Annabeth was singing? I've never heard her sing before! Maybe she's just bored? Or-
"The song I'm gonna sing is 'Sparks Fly' by Taylor Swift. I'm dedicating this song to my best friend!" Annabeth said. Music started to play. Annabeth opened her mouth and let her voice do the work...

The way you move is like
a full on rainstorm
And I'm a house of cards
You're the kind of reckless
That should send me runnin'
But I kinda know that I won't get far
And you stood there in front of me
Just close enough to touch
Close enough to hope you couldn't see
What I was thinking of


My mouth hung open. Annabeth could sing? I mean sing, sing. Her voice is angelic! It was like listening to heaven's gates open.

Drop everything now
Meet me in the pouring rain
Kiss me on the sidewalk
Take away the pain
'cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile
Get me with those green eyes, baby, as the lights go down
Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around
'cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile


Hm. Weird. I have green eyes. Wait... Is she dedicating this song to me? Well, I am one of her best friends. I mean...

My mind forgets to remind me
You're a bad idea
You touch me once and it's really something,
You find I'm even better than you imagined I would be.
I'm on my guard for the rest of the world
But with you I know it's no good
And I could wait patiently but I really wish you would...


She is singing this song for me! She's confessing! I grinned and run my hands through my brown hair. And make my way towards the stage.

Drop everything now
Meet me in the pouring rain
Kiss me on the sidewalk
Take away the pain
'cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile
Get me with those green eyes, baby, as the lights go down
Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around
'cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile


I was close to the stage. I wasn't gonna go up there yet. I would confess to her afterwards. I heard a loud BANG at the back. I turned my head, seeing the doors open then close. A guy walked in. I didn't recognize him from any of the junior or senior classes. Hm. Must be new.

I run my fingers through your hair and watch the lights go wild.
Just keep on keeping your eyes on me, it's just wrong enough to make it feel right.
And lead me up the staircase
Won't you whisper soft and slow?
I'm captivated by you, baby, like a firework show.


I turn my head back to the stage. I noticed Annabeth looking at the middle of the crowd. Annie, you're suppose to look at me! I scowled turning my head back again to see what was so important other than me. I saw the guy from before smirk, looking at Annabeth.

Drop everything now,
Meet me in the pouring rain,
Kiss me on the sidewalk,
Take away the pain
'cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile.
Get me with those green eyes, baby, as the lights go down
Give me something that'll haunt me when you're not around
'cause I see sparks fly whenever you smile


Annabeth's eyes widened, seeing the guy. The guy (still unknown) grinned a sparkly smile at her. Annabeth blushed, still continuing the song. My heads gonna break if I keep moving it back and forth towards Annabeth and the guy.

And the sparks fly...
Oh, baby, smile...
And the sparks fly...


The guy ran up the stage, ignoring the warnings of the principal. Annabeth turned to face him. "Seaweed-brain what are you-" The guy grabbed her face and pulled it towards his. My eyes widened. What the f*ck? With my eye red in anger, I also got up the stage and punch the guy's arm. The guy didn't even flinch. Instead, he pulled away from Annabeth and calmly punched my head. It looked like it would be soft but in my perspective? Damn it! The lights were pointed towards us and the crowd broke into whispers.
"What the Hades, Caleb!" I looked towards Annabeth, still clutching my head.
"That guy was kissing you," I cried, "I just saved yo-"
"Save me? From who? I can take care of myself, thank you very much."
"But that guy-"
"Is my boyfriend." Silence filled the room.
I processed her reply, "B-boyfriend?" Annabeth nodded.
"Everyone, meet my boyfriend Percy." I heard a chorus of 'hey Percy's and 'I hate you, random person's.
"Hey," Percy began, facing her, "Chiron needs to see you. Apparently Apollo and Artemis got into a fight and destroyed half of Apollo's temple."
Annabeth sighed.
"Alright. Bye school." The two left. Just like that. I watched them run off, exiting the building. First, I didn't get to sing my love song to Annabeth (which would've made her fall for me) and second, she was stolen by a criminal. Worst of all? I embarrassed myself in front of the whole school.
