Percy slid out the door and spotted Annabeth a little ways away leaning over the Argo II's rail. He walked toward her, noticing absent details like the fact  that her hair was out of its usual ponytail and blowing freely in the breeze.

"Hey," he said coming up behind her. "Why aren't you inside partying with all the others?"

Annabeth glanced over her shoulder and shrugged. Her hands fiddled with the beads on her necklace. "I don't know. Just needed to think I guess."

Percy shook his head. "We win a war and you want to sit out here and think." It was just so Annabeth.

She turned and punched him in the shoulder. "Shut up, Seaweed Brain."

He smiled and lifted one of her hands off her necklace, threading their fingers together. "Well I think the amazing Miss Chase deserves at least one victory dance of the night."

She stared at their twined hands. "You know, technically its morning."

Percy rolled his eyes. "We're dancing," he pulled her close. "Even if you don't want to."

Annabeth laughed and wrapped her arms around his neck. "I never said that."

They swayed back and forth, listening to the sounds of celebration coming from inside.

"We did it," Annabeth said softly.

Percy glanced down and noticed for the first time that he had to glance down to see her. She stared over his shoulder, her expression almost melancholic and as she did he couldn't help but notice how mature she looked. How beautiful. They had both grown up over the past few months; Percy was getting closer to 18 now instead of 17.

He tucked a strand of blonde hair behind her ear. "We did it," he agreed.

Annabeth looked up at him, a familiar smirk curling her lip. "Soooo," she drew the word out. "Where's the famous Percy Jackson, Hero of Olympus once again, going to go from here?"

Percy blushed slightly at the compliment. "I'm thinking of starting with Junior Prom," he admitted. "'Bout time we actually made it to one of those things."

"We have an annoying tendency to be preoccupied saving the world," Annabeth nodded.

"Yeah," He snorted. That was an understatement. "I'm hoping we'll get a longer break this time. Maybe enough to graduate high school."

"Don't push your luck," Annabeth warned.

He chuckled and kissed her forehead. "Never."

They danced in silence for a few moments, and Percy realized just how lucky he was that Annabeth was still here, warm in his arms after everything.

"And then," Annabeth said. "After that?"

Percy's heart began to pound. Something about her tone made him instantly nervous.

"Um, if I make it out of high school in one piece I'll probably go to college."

Annabeth waved her hand, like Go On.

Percy swallowed, his throat was suddenly as dry as the sahara. "And then, uh, in the future, I was thinking..."

"Does this future include anyone in particular?" Annabeth had her lips pressed together like she was trying not to smile.

"You're laughing at me!" Percy complained.

"I am not!"

"You are so not making this easy."

Annabeth laughed, her gray eyes sparkling like polished silver. "I never do," she told him matter-of-factly. "You should be used to it by now."

Percy twirled her around, and when she came back they were closer than before.

"I don't think I'll ever get used to you," he said softly.

Annabeth leaned in to kiss him but at the last second she pulled away. "Is that a promise then?" The smirk was back on her face. "Someday you will marry me?"

An embarrassed blush rose to his face at the word spoken aloud, Marry. But it also sent an excited thrill through him. He thought of Camp Jupiter, of the older demigods' families. He remembered the future he'd thought up of Annabeth and him. He wanted it more than anything.

"Absolutely, if, you know," Percy stumbled. "You want to marry me."

Annabeth's face seemed to glow as she inched closer to him. "I can't think of why I'd say no."

The sun peeked over the horizon and began brightening the Argo II. Their friends laughed and cheered inside, and they kissed knowing that at least, for now, everything was okay.

This is pretty much exactly how I want the last few pages of the final Heroes of Olympus to go haha I have this idea in my mind of Rick tying up all the loose strings and giving each couple a small ending in the last chapter, saving Percy and Annabeth for last because they are the characters he's been writing about the longest :) And this idea, of course, sprang to my mind while I was in the shower (My brain picks the most inconvenient times to be creative) Anyways, what do you guys think? How do you want the last book to end?

Percy, Annabeth, and the Heroes of Olympus story all belong to Mr. Troll Riordan

I really love this and I wish that the last HoO book ended like this, but I'm kinda worried about the last book, I read on twitter a few weeks I think it was ago, Rick Riordan posted a status saying "just finished writing the death of everyone's favorite couple" and I was like yelling at my phone saying "nooooooo, you can't do this!!! Noone will be able to look at something blue every again without saying ohh Percy would have loved this, I miss them :( and the. Start bawling their eyes out!!!"

best. Percabeth. Ending. Ever. :love:
but you never really know with rick riordan. The three things I'm looking forward to MoA is:
1. Percy and Annabeth's renuion.
2. Piper and Reyna fighting over Jason ;P (If you've read the demigod diaries, it shows piper and jason together. That's not a good sign for reyna.....)
3. The seven half bloods FINALLY sailing to Greece and Rome.

If Rick tries to be the troll he is and it will not end like this I will rip his last pages out and put your ending there instead.
haha, but seriously you wrote this perfectly and I've always had this headcanon that Percy and Annabeth would get married really early. as soon as they're both eighteen or something because they know that there will never be anyone else for them and yeah.. I can imagine them intruducing the other as their wife or husband at the age of nineteen and receiving strange looks from everyone.. and that was me, getting carried away but I just really want them to have their happy ever after! :heart:

Oh I'm worried about that to, specifically Annabeth's life. It really seems like she's going to die, but at the same time I don't think Rick will kill her off. I have a feeling he's going to make it seem like she's dead, if anything like that.

I just think that if Annabeth died it would tear Percy apart, and the others need him to be ready to fight in the war. I don't think the "Good side" can win without him at his strongest, that's why it seems unlikely Rick would kill her off. But then again all the signs are pointing to her death, so I don't know...

I agree. I just think that in one point, for example, Rick will kill annabeth at the end of MoA, and on the next book (making us waiting an awful whole year), make Percy go and get her from the underworld or something.
We never know with Rick Riordan... *sigh*

But anyways, this WOULD be the perfect ending. Amazing story!

Ya, I think the thing that makes me worry the most is the line of the prophecy about "an oath to keep with a final breath" cause it seems like Annabeth had a serious conversation with her mom before the start of the sneak peek and then Frank's life is just so fragile, I'm worried for them in particular.
