anonymous requested: AU in which Percy actually stole the lightning bolt for Poseidon
“Give me the lightning bolt, Percy.” Poseidon’s words were rushed, cutting the sound of the wind at the top of the Empire State Building. “You completed your task, now give me the lightning bolt.” He was impatient. Other gods could have tracked Percy’s scent. They could know and be on their way to stop him.
“I just want to know one thing.” Percy interrupted his father, keeping the bolt in his shield. “You made me a promise. Will you keep it?”
Poseidon frowned. “Percy, this is not easy…”
“Will. you. keep. it?” Percy forced.
“It’s going to be different this time, Percy.” He finally said. “I promise.”
