hahaha. Whenever I see or hear that word, all I can see is Tevye singing and dancing that song on Fidder on the Roof! :D  All good. One of the best musicals of all time...

Title: Good Luck
Author: Cassidy Alice
Rating: K+
Word Count: 420 (Slightly over. Sorry! ^^' )
Summary: "Don't I get a kiss for luck? It's kind of a tradition, right?"

Note/Disclaimer: (click to show/hide) Have some oddly written, weirdly characterized? Percabeth! The quote in the summary is borrowed from The Last Olympian. And obviously I own nothing. ^_^

Good Luck (click to show/hide)
Percy wasn’t ever going to admit this out loud, but the monster fighting wasn’t as annoying as it had been. Sure, some monsters were harder to kill than others and some days it seemed as if all the monsters in the tri-state area  wanted to eat him or kill him (or both; Percy was never quite sure just what monsters did with a vanquished demigod) but, for all his complaining, he really didn’t mind so much. The occasional monster attack wasn’t so bad when compared to all the ones he’d faced over his various quests.
   
The best part of monster fighting was that Annabeth was with him. They’d always made a good team and their strategy (which usually involved Percy doing something befitting his nickname of Seaweed Brain while Annabeth crept in from behind and vaporized the monster) almost always worked, so that in itself should’ve made him happy. But what he really loved was kissing Annabeth, even if it only was for a fraction of a second. He’d once made some offhanded comment about how she gave him kisses before he pulled stupid stunts and nearly got killed and he’d tried to sound nonchalant about it as he asked her for one, but he was pretty sure he’d failed. The first time he tried that, Annabeth hadn’t obliged. She’d told him to come back alive first. But, after they started dating, she indulged him.

That was the downside to dating a daughter of Athena, Percy supposed. He knew Annabeth was on to him; she was too smart not to catch on. But maybe she didn’t mind so much, considering how she hadn’t refused him one yet. Percy wasn’t going to admit this out loud either, but maybe there was some stock in all those legends about true love’s kiss being worth something. Maybe there was some restorative power to them, after all. Maybe they did help him fight better…or maybe it was just the adrenaline and his desire to impress Annabeth. It was hard to say. But of one thing, Percy was certain: nectar and ambrosia might’ve been food of the gods and they may have had excellent healing properties, but Annabeth’s kisses were just as good. And so, as he drew his sword for what seemed like the hundredth time that day, preparing to defeat yet another monster, he turned to face Annabeth and smiled.

“Don't I get a kiss for luck? It's kind of a tradition, right?"

Annabeth smiled and rolled her eyes, but kissed him anyway.
