274. the morning after the end of the second titan war, percy woke up with a note on his desk. written in ancient greek was a simple message: “good job, hero. looks like you proved yourself worthy without people telling you what to do.” his eyebrows scrunched up in confusion; the letter wasn’t signed. then the letter glowed green, and he covered his eyes. when he thought it stopped, he looked down and was ssurprised to see an octopus stuffed animal. there was a tag too, in greek — from, triton. percy keeps it on his bedside table as a reminder that his older brother really does love him… even if he doesn’t want to show it sometimes.
