The Gods predate man. Their reign powerful, eternal and revered. But since the dawn of the Gods, there have always been those sworn to end Olympus. The golden throne, the seat of the righteous, king of the Gods, Zeus. It is the core of their world. Many seek to destroy it, dethrone Zeus and end the reign of the Gods.

Camp Athens, a safe place for demigods, children of the Gods. A place for them to live, grow and train. That was the intent. The demigods were never supposed to be the warriors for the Gods. Their parents wanted them to grow up safe from the world that threatens to end them. But the ruler of the Underworld, Hades, sought after the golden throne for himself, the demigods had no choice but to fight.

The campers faced many trials that tested them on levels far greater than they ever imaged. It was but the first day of the summer, demigods flooding into the camp, when a minotaur stormed its way through. A distraction while a son of Zeus, Ajax, was stabbed by an Underworld blade and poisoned. When things seemed to die down, it was only the quiet before the storm. Ajax was later taken prisoner by Hades, only set free when his soul was taken from him in exchange for a daughter of Hecate.

And all the while, when some of the most powerful demigods were nowhere to be found, the rest of the campers had to band together to take down their toughest foe… A Hydra. Then there was death… at the hands of a God and at the hands of a daughter of Zeus. It seemed, when at their weakest, Hades attacked.

The war. Something the demigods had been preparing for, but never thought would come. Giants and minions flooded their way onto the grounds of camp. The Gods stood side by side with their children in a fight for Olympus. It tested them more than anything had before… And in the end, they succeeded. But not without great loss. Wounded, weak and broken, the demigods came together victorious.

It’s been a year since that war. New demigods have found their way to the camp. The heroes of the war found ways to cope with their losses and train harder. Although the war is over, no one can rest. Something lurks in the distance, like a storm on the horizon. They don’t know what it is or when it will come… But they must be ready.

WIPs will not be accepted x / / x WIP tends to lead to people assuming they do not have to complete CS. So, due to that I will not accept a character until the CS is completely finished. It helps us and you to have a fully flushed out character before you post. Password 1 : Who was stabbed with an underworld blade?

Demigods x / / x There will only be two demigods per God. This keeps the number of characters at a balanced manageable level. Discussion could be made to potentially add another God, but we don't want to overload the RP. Also the deceased campers will remain, and prohibit the possibility of a new camper their place. Their life and death had significance in the first year of Camp Athens, and for other reasons it is necessary.

Reservations x / / x Reserving a character will be done through the OOC discussion board. All reservations must include the God/Goddess you intend as the parent, FC, how often you are online and average word count per post; along with the answers to the passwords. If you want more than one character you are welcome. But, if you would like to reserve both child of a single god you must ask. Depending on the circumstances it may not work for diversity's sake.

Character Guidelines x / / x Throughout the balancing of the characters, a good mix of male and female roles would be appreciated. That doesn't necessarily mean each God has a male and female child, but that throughout an even amount would help the RP be balanced. Ideally, FCs should look close to the age of your character. Abilities shall be taken from the provided list. If you are wanting your character to have an ability not listed, please contact me and we shall discuss it.

Inactivity x / / x Inactivity and ghosting is a plague in RPG. It seems people cannot stick to RPs for the life of them. I get it, life happens... It happens to all of us. But, we all want RPs to succeed. The first year of Camp Athens made it to the end, but by that day there was only 5 writers out of the numerous that were originally part of the RP. So, that being said, if life happens please just contact us and let us know, we are very understanding. If you're MIA from OOC, posting or PMs without explanation or word, we do reserve the right to write past your character if it's keeping us in limbo. I'd rather you back out of the RP versus disappearing. Password 2 : Which Demigods are deceased?

General Rules x / / x Violence, adult language and adult situations will happen so if you cannot handle that you may not want to join. I encourage romance, it’s fun and we all enjoy complicated romance stories. Kissing and what not is fine, but when this get handsy... or naked. Just fade to black, and have your characters imply it later or whatever. We have imaginations, plus site rules and stuff :p Don’t control someone else’s character without their ok, this includes their NPCs. Also this meant to be fun so please no OOC fighting. Any issues can be directed through me and I'll handle it :)

"I hope so. I didn't see her when I came down from the tree." Trinity tilted her head softly, picking up on the change of tone. "I didn't realize you were worried about competition," he added sounding more like his playful self. Before she could interrupt, Wes carried on. "We can forget the whole date thing if you want."

He sounded a little dejected, and if she was being honest even she felt a little discouraged by the notion of throwing the whole date thing away. She just started to settle into the idea or at least tell herself all she had to do was be herself, Wes knew what he was walking into any time he accompanied her. Still, there would be something different - something special about a date.

"Andy is going through a lot. She needs you."

Trinity took in a breath preparing to speak but couldn’t find the words nor the emotions. He raised his hand and brushed her forearm gently with his thumb. "I'm not going anywhere."

She smiled a little then looked off. “That is true,” she commented. Wes was being completely sensible and compassionate about the circumstances surrounding them but Trinity still wanted the date to go on. But wouldn’t that make her extremely selfish? She glanced back to Wes, her mouth parting then closing with no words coming out. She cast her eyes downward. “It is a bit of a shame,” she admitted slowly, like each word required concentration.

“I um…” The mix of feelings seemed to make her incapable of forming an entire sentence. Her brain felt a little scrambled. Trinity snapped out of it and straightened abruptly. She wasn’t about to let herself become one of those girls that got upset because a child of Aphrodite cancelled a date - completely within reason to. “So what are you going to do to fill in your day without my amazing company? Personally, I'd suggest a shower or bath.” She crinkled her nose mockingly then smiled. “You're looking a little shiny,” she traced her own jaw in gesture to Wes's features. Whether it was from sweat or the rain or a combination of both, he was looking a bit sleek. Nothing imposing on his stupidly good-looking face though.

Meanwhile she crossed her arms. Her friend support duties were important , but right now Andy was with Mason and providing he behaved, she was already in the best hands. Trinity worried about what she could offer her friend for comfort that Mason or Ajax couldn't. Instead of fretting on that, she focused back on Wes. “I could probably help look for your beast a little later if you want? I mean I know I’m Ares Daughter but there are others that look for any excuse for blood and violence. It’d be a pity if it- she was hurt by someone who’s not worthy.”

"Anything that is a possible threat to her. She's strong, I know, but... there's stronger out there. I want to make sure that she's just safe. It'll be a peace of mind."

Evelyn frowned a little disapprovingly. He was definitely over cautious and over protective, but did he expect many great creatures to hunt Alex outside of camp? His evasiveness didn't go over her head. She could see him growing somewhat impatient with their questioning and doubts; clearly not used to being interrogated, however a job done right was better than a failure - especially in the present instance, so it was best to be thorough. Before Evelyn could ask for clarification one last time, Keith offered that they could try.

She suppressed a sigh while Ajax pulled out a butterfly necklace from his pocket and held it towards her. Evelyn took it gently from him being delicate with the beloved item, pursing her lips far from satisfied in these working conditions.
One, that Ajax elected to be secretive or rather vague about why Alex needed a protective charm. Two, he had on him, Alex's precious item and three, Alex didn't know about it.

Evelyn turned her back to the boys so she could concentrate. She closed her eyes willing protection, safety and a shield into the necklace and let the power emanate through her veins and out her fingertips to link through the chain and butterfly. She inhaled and blinked a few times coming out of her trance. Evelyn turned back to the men. “Hopefully this meets your needs but I can’t guarantee it.” She had utter faith in her powers, she knew her blessing went into the necklace but to what degree it would hide and protect Alex couldn’t be known, so Evelyn painted fair expectations for Ajax.

Just as she went to extend her hand to hand it back to Ajax, she retracted it. “Unless, the son of Hecate would like to double check?” She opened her palm towards Keith now. “Cast your own spell,” she suggested, “trial the necklace with hunters.” There was a challenging air to the proposal. Something to test what he was made of in a proactive way and reveal more of his character.

Evelyn glanced back to Ajax. “Assuming you don't mind...?” At least with a test they could see if it worked effectively and everybody could be assured there was a good chance Alex would return in one piece. She cocked her head slightly looking at the son of Zeus. “You're not going with her,” she stated aloud. Yet Ajax struck her as such a family man... “Do you go out of camp much?”

Image Andy scooted to him and wrapped her arms around him again. Normally once was already more than enough as he wasn't the hugging type but today she needed it and the least he could do was be a good shoulder. Even then though it didn't stop her crying, no matter what he said or did. He rubbed her back gently and she nodded against his shoulder.

"I'm scared Mason." He tried to meet her eyes to assure he had heard her right, but couldn't, not without breaking the hug. And in his arms at least he knew she was safe. "I just wanted him at peace... How am I supposed to face him? I couldn't save him. I handed him off to our mother... And h-h-he died. But, it's not him."

Mason sighed out. He was searching for something to say but kept running into dead ends. Andy drew away by that time, wiping her eyes and Mason studied her face. "How am I supposed to look at Daniel but accept that it isn't him?"

He stroked away a single tear carefully while she tried to compose herself again. "Maybe it is him. All we know is that he hasn't visited you yet and he's not talking much. That doesn't mean it's not him. Dying then being resurrected can effect a person." Everyone assumed Daniel wasn't Daniel because he didn't make his usual spectacle. But if anyone had a blade shoved through them then was revived, they probably wouldn't feel too festive either. Then again Daniel had a gift of being resilient. Even Mason preferred his friend in tact, however Mason wasn't an optimist so addressed the other side of the coin. "And if it isn't Daniel..." He didn't know how she could accept it or what they could do. "There's no obligation, Andy. You don't have to do anything," he said instead. She was putting too much responsibility and pressure on her shoulders.

Slowly Mason stood up from her bed. "Can I get you anything?"

"As you know, I still have to go. I see her face in my dreams. I see her even when I'm awake." Duke was sorry to hear that and wished she had told someone sooner if her conscience was that tainted, but settled on nodding to her once. She probably didn't need a lecture. "I need to find peace with myself, then I promise I will come back."

ImageHe received an unexpected little kiss on his cheek from her but that wasn't what disturbed him. It was when she said, "I... I'm going to miss you, Duke."

He fell into his seat trying to scrutinize Alex. Last year she already left camp to put her mind at ease, to prove she didn't murder in cold blood. And now she was leaving again and just decided to admit it plagues her mind still. Duke frowned not able to make sense of why she was making it more difficult on herself. "How long will you be gone?" Although he could imagine Alex wouldn't have an exact answer for him. "I know inner peace is your own to find, but what about dream therapy? Why not ask a child of Hypnos to aid your sleep or dream walk with you? There are plenty of ways people can help you at camp."

Duke felt like everything he said was a losing a battle with Alex. She was so set in her own mind. So maybe a more brutal truth needed to be said. "Jennova was never going to make it," he said looking at his clasped hands. For a moment the sentence hung in the air. It didn't make it acceptable or merciful to kill her, however, maybe it was worth noting. "She wasn't careful enough. She was eager to please Hades blindly and recklessly. She started to lose humanity..." Duke recited, gaze on the wall. After that, he wouldn't be surprised if Alex thought him cold and he checked for her reaction.

Ignoring that, Duke got up and started to escort Alex out of his mancave to finish her rounds of temporary goodbyes. The sooner she left, the sooner she could come back. There was a trend on camp that once a blood of Zeus left something bad would happen on camp.

He sensed annoyance in both of them which left him in a rather uncomfortable zone. Keith didn't know how to play peace maker very well. So long as things didn't escalate, he wouldn't have to. Evelyn took the necklace and turned away from them as she worked her blessing into it. Thank you again.

Now Keith was left standing by Ajax and he shifted uncomfortably. "So...how are you?" Other than stressed and high strung about protecting Alex. Keith wanted to smack himself sometimes.

Image “Hopefully this meets your needs but I can’t guarantee it.” Keith tried the more reassuring smile approach in contrast to Evelyn's honesty. Then as she went to hand the necklace back, she retracted it and an anxious feeling started swirling in his gut and chest. There was either going to be a fight or- “Unless, the son of Hecate would like to double check? Cast your own spell, trial the necklace with hunters,” she suggested, presenting the necklace to Keith.

There had never been a faster evolution from hero to antagonist. How could he get out of this? His powers felt like they didn't belong to him and he didn't practice often enough. Keith took the necklace gingerly, as if it had the power to sear him but it was only a problem on his own end. Upon inspection of the butterfly necklace, a half of him thought the contrast was funny from Alex's true nature, on the other hand there was a surge of familiarity. Keith looked back up at Evelyn and Ajax. He must have looked odd playing with the necklace idly lost in his own thoughts. "I....I can try." That must have seemed like his new favorite phrase of the day too.

If anything were to go wrong, or more likely, nothing were to happen, he was around the best people to deal with it. He didn't want to risk cancelling Evelyn's charm on it so he'd opt for hunters if anything. If Ajax didn't intervene which in this case Keith wouldn't have minded.

Ji-hyun was almost halfway to the first aid tent when footsteps sounded behind him. He paused and turned back, meeting Sloane's eyes. "Hey, uh. I can take care of that... if you want. After all, it was kinda my fault."

He considered the offer. "Not really. I mean, it wasn't your fault," he amended quickly. "That thing just came at me." He mimed slashing through the air with his injured hand - poor decision, as the movement caused blood to spatter the grass in front of him. Ji-hyun stared at the drops on the ground, looking almost disappointed. "But yeah, I'll take you up on that offer. Thanks."

The two of them headed towards the cabins together, Ji-hyun holding his hand to his stomach to stop it from bleeding all over. "You know," he started conversationally, "back in Korea this would never have happened. My grandmother would have freaked out if I came home with even a scratch on me. And my brother always stood up for me against the older guys." He paused. He'd never really felt a compulsion to talk about Ji-ha - sure he wouldn't deny the fact that he had a brother, but it was weird speaking as though it was something they always did. Oh, he always fought my fights, and then he'd go home and get beaten again. We weren't like everyone else, but we weren't even like each other. Just another day in the lives of the Jin brothers.

He waved his uninjured hand, trying to brush it off. He'd had his time to be melancholy about it. "But talking about him isn't going to bring him back, so nevermind me. What a game, huh? I can't believe they let us be the last line of defence for the flag. Wes climbed that tree so quickly I barely even saw it. Is it gonna be like this all the time, do you think they're going to try to make us warriors?" He forced a laugh. "I don't think that's ever going to happen."

Andy tried to muster her best smile as Mason wiped away her tear. "Maybe it is him. All we know is that he hasn't visited you yet and he's not talking much. That doesn't mean it's not him. Dying then being resurrected can effect a person." Her gaze fell slightly when he spoke. Of course, that could be true, but part of her thought that Mason was only saying that to help her not be so upset. She appreciated it… But she didn’t believe him. "And if it isn't Daniel...” Her gaze raised to meet his. "There's no obligation, Andy. You don't have to do anything," he concluded.

She didn’t know what to say. Mason was right. If this wasn’t Daniel… Just a shell. Then she had no obligation to be anything to him. Andy couldn’t help the flashbacks she got from last summer. The memories of Ajax without his soul, how careless and cold he was. Daniel nearly fought him in the middle of the entire camp because of how he treated her and now it’s as if the tables might have turned. Although, this time her brother is the ghost and Ajax is nowhere to be found.

Her attention was drawn back to Mason as the weight displaced on her bed as he stood. She didn’t want him to leave her alone. Gods was she tired of being left alone with her own thoughts. How much more of her own mind could she handle before it was too much? But Andy said nothing,

"Can I get you anything?"

”Can you go with me to find him? Please?” Andy sighed, resting her hands on her knees. She sat there in silence for a moment before moving to her feet. Her head was dizzy for a moment but wore off quickly. She gave a brief thought to changing, putting make up over her bruised and broken nose but she didn’t care. ”I don’t want to just… stumble upon him when I’m not prepared. And I don’t know if I can do it on my own.” She shook her head as she spoke.

She knew he was getting ready to leave and between everything that happened that day during capture the flag… their own little argument, Mason might want to be on his own. Andy didn’t blame him if he did. But she didn’t want to. Mason and Trinity were there for her through this and came to her immediately. Unlike Ajax who had to have known since he was on her brother’s team… Not that Andy knew if she wanted to talk to him anyway.

”… You don’t have to.”

"Not really. I mean, it wasn't your fault. That thing just came at me." Sloane walked in pace with Ji-Hyun, looking between his hand and eyes as he spoke. When he slashed his hand through the air she gasped slightly, taking a step back so the blood landed on the ground and not her. "But yeah, I'll take you up on that offer. Thanks."

”Be careful,” she warned with raised brows and a nervous laugh.

Sloane nodded her head toward him when he seemed all right and turned their path toward the cabins. "You know,” Ji-Hyun spoke up getting her attention as they walked. "Back in Korea this would never have happened. My grandmother would have freaked out if I came home with even a scratch on me. And my brother always stood up for me against the older guys."

Ji-Hyun paused mid-step, lost in thought. Sloane remained silent for a long moment, giving him the silence he might need. She glanced around at the surrounding area, freezing slightly when she met her own brother’s gaze as he made his way toward their cabin. Sylas didn’t seem happy that she was with Ji-Hyun. It even seemed like he had half a mind to beeline for her. ”Let’s go to your cabin.”

She took him by the elbow gently, and guided him in a different direction that wouldn’t lead them right toward her brother. Once Sylas was out of sight, she relaxed slightly, looking back toward the silent Ji-Hyun. ”I am sorry about your brother…” Sloane didn’t know what else to say. Deep down, she was envious of the relationship he had with his brother. Not that his brother was dead, but their closeness.

"But talking about him isn't going to bring him back, so nevermind me. What a game, huh? I can't believe they let us be the last line of defence for the flag. Wes climbed that tree so quickly I barely even saw it. Is it gonna be like this all the time, do you think they're going to try to make us warriors?" Ji-Hyun laughed weakly. "I don't think that's ever going to happen."

Sloane shrugged her shoulders. ”I can only assume so. Look at the Valis’, Trinity… or any of the other seasoned campers. They fight like… well, warriors.” She shrugged her shoulders, slowing their steps as they arrived at his cabin. She made her way up the steps of his porch, and motioned her hand to the door as a silent way of asking permission for her to enter.

”I’ve never been much of a fighter either... That’s Sylas’ area of expertise.”

”That is true,” Trinity replied although she didn’t seem all that happy about it. Seeing the slight sadness in her face of the date no longer happening made Wes’ heart skip a beat. She looked up to him then back down before she continued to speak. “It is a bit of a shame.”

”I was looking forward to it too,” Wes whispered down toward her, just quiet enough so only she could hear him. His voice was gentle but sincere. He wanted every moment he could have with Trinity, and a moment alone was a rare gift. Giving that up was hard, but he knew her friend needed her.

Wes took a slight step toward her, raising his hand to brush back loose blonde strands. Before she could argue or say otherwise, Wes acted on impulse in the brief moment that they were alone. He leaned in toward her, pausing momentarily to glance into her eyes. His hand cupped the side of her face, his thumb brushing her cheek as he closed the distance between them. Wes heart raced as his lips pressed against hers for a brief, yet tender kiss.

He couldn’t help himself as he got lost in the kiss for longer than he intended, but Wes gently pulled away, smiling down at her with flushed cheeks. ”Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.”

”So what are you going to do to fill in your day without my amazing company? Personally, I'd suggest a shower or bath.” Trinity’s face cringed but couldn’t hide her smile. ”You're looking a little shiny,” she added while tracing her own jaw.

Wes laughed softly, raising his hand to brush his fingertips along his… shiny skin. ”Well I was in the rain,” he commented. But she was probably right. She also needed to see to her wound, but trying to get her to admit she needed first aid was like trying to get a boulder to move.

Trinity crossed her arms, obviously deep in thought for a long moment before she spoke up. “I could probably help look for your beast a little later if you want? I mean I know I’m Ares Daughter but there are others that look for any excuse for blood and violence. It’d be a pity if it- she was hurt by someone who’s not worthy.”

Wes smiled as he shifted his weight where he stood. ”I don’t know if I’d be able to find her. Who knows how the camp gets their creatures for our sport, or what they do with them afterwards.” He glanced down slightly as he rustled his hair. ”I can only hope that she was able to go back to the underworld. That’s the only real place for a hell hound.” He then looked up and smiled toward her. ”I appreciate it though, Blondie.”

DAUGHTER OF ZEUS
Hex: #d63b71
The anger she felt inside was better than tears, better than grief, and better than guilt. There was no turning back or erasing past mistakes. She just had to learn by them and move forward. "How long will you be gone?" Duke knew already that she couldn't give him an answer for that. It would just be as long as she needed until she felt herself again. "I know inner peace is your own find, but what about dream therapy? why not ask a child of Hypnos to aid your sleep or dream walk with you? there are plenty of ways people can help you at camp." That was if they wanted to help. Alex shook her head. They were good ideas if her dreams hadn't taken the dark path lately. She didn't want to admit that she was afraid. She knew Duke wouldn't judge her, and neither would her brother or Wes... it was the others she wasn't so sure about. Oh, Mason would have a field day with that knowledge no doubt. She didn't want to give him the satisfaction. "Jennova was never going to make it," Alex took a seat, her behind gently pressing down into the soft material of a chair that sat in his workshop. She closed her eyes and swallowed gently as she hung her head down. "She wasn't careful enough. She was eager to please Hades blindly and recklessly. She started to lose humanity."

Image He was right, and they both knew that was still no excuse to end her life, but it had happened and there was no way to bring her back. She looked up at him and furrowed her brows. "I should have handled the situation differently. I lost control of my anger. I just..." she raised her shoulders and shook her head. "it was like my body was there, but the rest of me wasn't. She knew which button to press that night, and I begged myself to walk away, but I snapped. It happened so quickly." she told him. "I'm lucky that the Gods have not come for me, or maybe they will. I should be standing trial before them and facing my fate."

Image As Duke stood up, Alex too began to stand. "I'm sorry if I've wasted your time, but I had to see you before I left. I wasn't expecting to dump all my thoughts on you, but I'm glad I did. It helped. See you soon, Duke." she smiled a little, then left his workshop, but spun around before he had completely disappeared from sight. "Thank you," she added softly before leaving.

She headed towards her cabin with not wanting to waste any more of Duke's time. After a couple of steps, she paused for a moment after her eyes found Wes and Trinity. Not wanting to get in between them, she carried on walking since she needed to pack anyway. Just a few things really. Nothing special. Mason was no doubt going to be happy with one of Zeus's children gone. For now.

AJAX VALIS
SON OF ZEUS
Hex: Green
As Ajax waited for Evelyn to work her magic, Ajax's eyes looked to Daniel. It wasn't a surprise he was back with them having Gods as parents, but it was a little strange that Daniel was acting as though nothing had happened to him. "So how are you?" he asked, causing Ajax to frown. No, teasing comment? no witty words to throw in his face? Daniel definitely didn't seem like himself, but who could blame him after returning from the dead?

Ajax studied him briefly. "I could ask you the same thing, but I'm alright I guess. Thanks." Alex wasn't even gone yet, and already he was worrying and contemplating the worse scenarios in his head.

Finally, Evelyn was done. Her return broke him from his thoughts and the fallen silence between him and Daniel.

He went to take the necklace back from her but paused as she offered it towards Daniel. Sensing he didn't want to handle it, Ajax reached out and took it from him. "No, it's fine. Thank you." he nodded to them, tossed the necklace up into the air a couple of inches from the palm of his hand, and caught it before he headed off in search for his little sister. He didn't have time to say anything else, so he hurried towards their cabin in hopes that she would still be there.

As he made his way towards the front door his mind wandered briefly to Andy. He had noticed how absent he had been since they declared themselves, finally, as a couple. That girl deserved so much better than some mood changing male that lost his temper easily. With everything going on, Ajax felt torn. He wanted to the leader that many expected him to be, but he also wanted to be the boyfriend that Andy expected him to be. Blowing hot and cold with her wasn't her fault in the slightest... it was his, and no doubt Mason was there with her now, playing Mr. White Knight. He clenched his jaw at the thought before entering the cabin. "Al?"

Image ”Can you go with me to find him? Please?” He didn't imagine the request so soon. Eventually she'd want to seek out Daniel, but he was more offering in terms of food and drink or tissues. Mason didn't know how he could cope with the turmoil in himself and Andy so that's probably why he stared at her in belief. ”I don’t want to just… stumble upon him when I’m not prepared. And I don’t know if I can do it on my own.”

Mason scratched the back of his neck. He did offer whenever she wanted to he'd go with her. It felt extremely soon though, she just had a mini meltdown and now its like she wanted salt in the wound.

”… You don’t have to.” she added.

Mason looked off pressing his tongue to his cheek. "I want to see him too," he told her honestly. "I just think you've had a big day and....you're not entirely ready," he said. Not to discredit her strength or baby her, but that was his opinion. They had a fight, Ajax and her had a fight, then she heard her dead brother was walking around in the realm of living, now she wanted to face the ghost head on. Unless her logic was make a bad day worse.

"I'll go with you. Of course I'll go with you," he answered finally. "But it's not going to be any easier." In the event Daniel was some left over shell, Mason didn't know how he'd take it either. And Ajax was lucky to get his soul back when he did - he was hardly an example of what a soulless man could do. Mason looked her over. She looked like hell and he didn't think it was the best reunion look but if she was comfortable...Mason turned his back on Andy regardless, allowing her some privacy. "When you're ready."

"No, it's fine. Thank you." Ajax suddenly took the necklace, gave them a nod, tossed the precious item to himself then headed off casually. The way he came up to them, Keith thought it was some code grey priority thing. But he quickly dismissed it. Whatever happened from then on was Ajax's business and responsibility because the red-head gave him a full disclaimer. Even the whole 'try before you buy' type of deal. She was hell of a marketer.

ImageKeith pursed his lips then looked to Evelyn. And he thought he was bad at socializing. "At least he said thank you," Keith offered. He actually felt a little embarrassed by his camp mate's behavior. "You know someone once told me the Valises will always look out for each other first. They get tunnel vision when it comes to each other to the extent you could be in immediate danger and a Valis in fraction of that, and they'd still choose each other." That's not how he imagined his sentence coming out. He wanted to say they just worried about each other a lot and something else to keep things optimistic, but his words took a tale of its own. And he was unable to redeem them or argue otherwise.

He looked away again biting his lip softly. His powers were part of his identity or should have been and he wasn't confident enough to wield them. It always had to come down to pressure before he'd use it and now the opportunity slipped; Ajax was gone but he still had Evelyn. Under her watchful eye, he doubted she'd let things go so wrong. Plus, she seemed insistent to push him. "So you strike me as powerful and - I wanna try. I wanna try use my powers."

Keith smiled a little and raised his hand. At first the fragments of images appeared then vanished as quick as they came. He tried not to get exasperated with himself. Some blurred emotions and a foggy mind state wouldn't help him in succeeding. He tried again and again having no success. Keith shifted his weight from foot to foot then glanced at Evelyn. He had started so motivated and now he was embarrassing himself. Then finally three hunters appeared and Keith let out a breath he didn't know he was holding. Keith beamed. Paying his creations more mind, their skin and eyes were slightly discolored and they didn't come out entirely human looking. More like zombies with weapons.

Suddenly they raised their weapons pointing at the pair. "Woah." Keith automatically raised his hands and took a few steps back.

At the entrance of the camp stood three figures. They knew they were late but it couldn't be helped due to the fact that there had been weather issues back in Scotland and one delay at their layover. Ethan, who was use to traveling, took it all in stride. His two companions, Heath and his adopted sister, Iliana, were not thrilled with being late, only for different reasons. Heath preferred it when things ran on time, while Iliana hated staying cooped up in an airport longer then necessary because of the crowds. She might not talk now, but her facial expressions were easy to read at times.

"Well we finally made it, safe and sound!"

Ethan had been looking forward to meeting other demigods and was actually hoping to see ancient Greek architecture at this camp, or something like this.

"I just hope we don't get into any trouble for being a day late," commented Heath, his thick Scottish accent evident.

"No worries, bro. Our mothers did assure us they would let the staff know we would be late."

That earned a small smile from Heath and he nodded in agreement. Still he hoped this lateness wouldn't reflect badly on them, even though things were completely out of their hands. Looking at the place that was to be both sanctuary and training ground, he couldn't help but be curious about the others. Of course he did his research on the gods involved. He never wanted to enter a new situation completely blind. Now he didn't cross personal boundaries when it came to private information, all Heath did was get basic info, which his mother provided. He, along with Ethan and Iliana learned they had half siblings here also. Now whether or not Heath would spend time with his half-sister would be another question because right now it didn't matter much. Iliana was his main concern. Looking at her right now, he hoped and prayed this new place would help her find her voice.

At the moment, Iliana had one hand through Heath's arm and she was gripping him pretty tightly. It was evident by that gesture alone that she was nervous. However her inner thoughts were scrambling and she didn't know what to expect here. She knew she still needed help training and especially needed help coming out of her shell. But she was terrified of getting hurt here too, emotionally at least or worse, she'd hurt someone else. Her mother's last words to her before coming here still rang in her ear.

"You'll do fine sweetie. Just take your time and stick with Ethan and Heath. And remember to breath when you feel yourself panicking. You've made tremendous strides already and I am very proud of you."

~I won't let her down.~ Iliana thought to herself.

Soon a camp staff member greeted them and showed them to their cabins. By special request, all three got to share a cabin with three rooms. Both boys though had a feeling though that Iliana would still probably sleep in Heath's room initially or whenever she had a nightmare. It had been a long standing habit for Iliana to do this when she first lived with Heath and his father because she felt comfortable with him. She had been fine sleeping on her own after a time, but then after her abduction she started sleeping in Heath's room again when she moved in with Heath and Ethan. It was another reason why she moved in with him from her adopted father's house. The poor girl was too scared to sleep at night, in fear she would be abducted again like she was at college. Her adopted father tried to help, but unfortunately him being a human didn't help. Iliana was ashamed of her behavior too, but her mind and heart were in two different spots. She could feel the love and sincerity of the man, but her mind wouldn't let her think straight.

After unpacking, the three were allowed to explore the premises since training had just finished up.

"Wonderful! Darn shame we missed some training, but at least it'll give us a chance to explore. Is that okay with you Lia?" Ethan asked Iliana, referring to her by her nickname.

Iliana's lips curled up a bit and she nodded. She could already feel herself connecting with the land and the eagerness to explore nature override her concerns with meeting the other demigods. Still she carried her notepad and pen just in case, but she intended to stick with Heath as much as possible. Heath didn't mind either. After what happened with Iliana, he didn't want to let her out of his sight. Ethan hoped this wouldn't always be the case where Iliana was too dependent on Heath, but decided not to bring it up.

So locking up the cabin, the three headed out to see what this camp had to offer.

He closed the door behind him as he stepped inside and looked around the room...

Quiet and empty as always.

With no reply from Alex, he headed down the hallway and paused outside of her bedroom door. He closed his eyes for a second or two before knocking. "Al, I need to talk to you. Only for a moment, though. I promise." he knocked again. "I'm coming in..." he warned, then pushed the door open and peered in. He only found an untouched bed and the double doors that had been left open. She had slipped out the side of the house once she had heard him the first time.

He sighed before he went after her. She would be at the stables, unable to leave without saying goodbye to Pegasus first.

That horse had been with her since their father had gifted it to her during her first week at camp last year. Immediately, they fell in love with each other. Inseparable souls... Beast, and woman.

Once there, Pegasus's stable was empty...

Ajax quickly jogged towards the stall and held his hand over the door as he looked inside with hope that the animal was just laying down to rest. But it wasn't. "Damn it!" he yelled out and kicked the stable door with the tip of his boot, right before his eyes caught sight of the white stallion inside of the indoor riding arena.

Ajax smiled. He wasn't too late after all.

With her hands holding the leather reins, she walked Pegasus around the edge before she broke him into a gentle trot. With every step the beautiful white beast took with his wings tucked back against his muscular frame, he hung his head down, tucking in his muzzle towards his chest. Such a majestic and beautiful animal.

Pegasus began to walk again, and while Alex looked down at him with a smile, she patted the side of his thick neck with her right hand. He stood still, and Alex leaned over and hugged his neck while she stroked him and whispered, "I'm going to miss you so much." her eyes began to fill with tears while she listened to him breathing heavy as horses do, air snorting out of their large soft nostrils. He blinked softly with his ears turned towards her as he listened to her quiet sobbing.

Her hand continued to stroke his soft white fur as she remained hugged to his neck. His two ears now turned to the front with his eyes on Ajax who now stood at the main gate. Pegasus blew out air from his muzzle which caused his lips to rumble together to let her know that someone was there.

Alex looked up, her eyes just visible over the top of Pegasus's neck. She quickly wiped her eyes before she straightened up in the saddle. Shifted her weight slightly before she began to walk him towards her brother.

"You're in my way." She told him, but he didn't move.

"Just let me talk to you for a moment, okay?" he asked her as he held his hands up a little as if he was about to raise them and surrender. "I know that you want to leave, but it's not going to fix anything. She was unhinged, just like her father. You're a good person, Al, and plenty of them know that even if some others don't. You shouldn't have to leave this place just because of one mistake."

"It isn't just because of what others think of me, Aj! ...it's because I have completely lost who I'm supposed to be. I'm angry, all the time, and I don't think I can control it for much longer. Do you want me to hurt someone else just because I'm unstable? - Would be following in big brother's footsteps after all."

Ajax clenched his jaw. He knew she was only antagonizing him to protect her anger onto him, and so he would let her go. "That's not fair. What I did was an accident and you know it. I told you what happened."

Alex scoffed. "You did, but was it the truth? - I mean, it's not the first time you've covered things up to protect me. I don't even know if I can trust my own brother anymore."

"Al.." He steps towards her. Pegasus takes a step back and opens his wings. Ajax steps back. "Okay, okay." he said to Pegasus to calm him. "Just... you don't mean any of that and I... at least wear this when you go... please." He holds a necklace out in front of him, and steps aside as she moves Pegasus forward and snatches it from him. She heads towards the stables without even a glance back.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ethan easily took the lead while he and his companions explored the camp. Ethan did most of the talking with Heath talking a bit and Iliana remaining silent, although her eyes looked everywhere.

"I wonder what the other demigods are like?" Ethan wondered.

"We'll find out when we meet them," Heath replied.

"I am surprised we haven't ran into any yet though. Didn't that one guy said they just finished training? I thought we would at least see one of them around the cabins."

There was another reason why Ethan was eager to meet the other demigods. Unlike Heath and Iliana, he didn't grow up with anyone remotely like him and as much as he loved his father, his father didn't have to worry about the things Ethan had to worry about. However he knew better that not everything was going to be hunky-dory. Just like on a construction site when you threw different personalities into a concentrated area, emotions were bound to fly. Add young folk with magical abilities, and things could really get intense. Still he'd be lying if he wasn't excited. He did get a demo from his mother on what happened last year and while he was not looking forward to the fighting part of his training, he did not want to be a hindrance either. He already knew that out of the three of them, his skills were more of supportive type. Heath's powers were more akin to strategy and defense. Ethan knew his friend though wanted to improve in the offensive strategy though. Ironically, the one who had the most offensive skills was Iliana due to her control over wind, rain, and earth, not to mention her potential hazardous skill of induce hunger. In her current mental and emotional state though, Ethan couldn't see Lia being out there in the fray. However he knew she was just as protective of her brother, so it wouldn't surprise him if she did find the courage to help Heath.

It did not bother Heath that they had yet to meet any of their fellow campers. The grounds were massive, so who knew where they were. At the moment he was taking in everything and committing it to memory.

"Don't worry Ethan, I am sure we'll run into a few sooner or later. No need to rush things."

Iliana was definitely in no rush. She was enjoying exploring the area and was tempted to explore every single inch of the camp, but doubted she would. For one thing, she wasn't much of a climber. It was still something she wanted to try though. It could come in handy. She loved nature in general and was considered a 'tree hugger'. She did wonder if Heath would allow her to learn how to climb though. When they first learned that they had to train to be fighters, she remembered how upset Heath was. Oh he never voiced this concerned since it was their mothers who told them this, but his inner feelings were ringing loud and clear. Plus, since he knew he could never hide his true feelings from Iliana, he did admit he was scared of her getting hurt again. Well he wasn't the only one. Iliana certainly didn't want to fight, but she didn't want to feel helpless again either. And even though she'd yet to meet the other demigods, the idea of anything happening to them did not sit well with her.

Speaking of the other demigods, while Iliana could not see any, she could pick up a little emotional turbulence coming from some buildings nearby. The structures were made out of wood and almost reminded Iliana of a barn. And they were heading right for them.

~What is going on here?~ she wondered to herself.

As much as she wanted to stop, she didn't want to be a coward either, at least not in front of Ethan and Heath. Ethan spotted the structures too and was excited.

"Wow, would you look at that wooden structure, it's amazing! I wonder what's inside? I don't see any 'Do not Enter' signs, so I think it should be okay. What do you two think?"

"It looks like we can go in. Is that okay with you Lia?" Heath asked Iliana as he turned to her.

Iliana mere nodded and with that the tree head inside to see multiple stables.

"Hey these are stables right? I've never actually seen something like this. Have you two?"

The others just shake their head and it is at the moment they see someone riding an animal from other doorway. All three immediately guessed the animal was Pegasus, the famous winged horse. When Iliana looked at the rider, she knew she found the source, or at least one of the sources, to that emotional turbulence. Instinctively, she drew closer to Heath, nearly hiding behind him. Heath placed his free hand on top of Iliana's and gave her a reassuring smile.

"I am here," he whispered softly.

Ethan saw Iliana's withdrawal too and started using his serenity on her a bit so she wouldn't bolt. He also decided to step forward and greet the new person. Looking the dark haired young woman over, he figured this was one of the demigods here. Also, he could tell that something was up with this person probably wasn't in the mood to talk so he would keep this introduction brief.

"Hello there, my name is Ethan Knox and my companions and I are new arrivals to this camp. I was wondering if the stables was open to all campers here. If not we'll leave an get out of your hair." he says with a jovial and polite tone.

He seemed to be getting closer and Trinity smiled faintly when he brushed back some locks of her hair. But when he leaned in, Trinity tensed suddenly aware of their proximity, although she found herself unwilling to move especially when his eyes were so captivating. And she trusted Wes. Then he kissed her. She was taken back, a little zap jolting through her body. By the time she could make some coherent response, her lips only had time to pucker softly in return before it was over.

”Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.”

A grin slowly stretched across her mouth. “You kissed me,” she stated. She shook her head as if it was surreal, although the grin insisted on staying. “It’s okay,” she mumbled. “It was…nice.” As she lowered her eyes, she realized then her hands were clutching his shirt. “Oh, sorry.” She immediately released her grip and stepped away from him.

After a brief storm of embarrassment and hormones, they resumed their conversations. To her more recent offer, he politely and logically answered. ”I don’t know if I’d be able to find her. Who knows how the camp gets their creatures for our sport, or what they do with them afterwards. I can only hope that she was able to go back to the underworld. That’s the only real place for a hell hound. I appreciate it though, Blondie.”

She nodded once. “No worries, Ken.” She wanted to leave it at that. She really did but she couldn't because Wes's compassion - though sweet and great at times, didn't sit right with her. “But,” she stuck up a finger, “just to be a classic party pooper, if you weren't who you were, tell me you understand those things would rip us to shreds.” Trinity tried to keep a light tone and smile about it, but in truth his Mr. Brightside, mercy and love for all was concerning.

This time she stepped up to him. “Did you know you have one arm now? And uh, that makes you more vulnerable to attacks. Especially towards predatory animals and creatures, they pick up on it like-” she snapped her fingers in demonstration and smirked. Trinity placed a hand over his right rib and the other on his left shoulder.“What if I just dug my claws in now?” She smirked teasing again. “Or had a knife?” She conjured one with a small wrist movement and allowed Wes to feel the smooth surface of the blade between his neck and shoulder. Trinity rose some mock challenging brows while amusement glinted in her eyes.

She gave him a moment or two, but before everyone dived on her to save the beloved Son of Aphrodite or Wes thought this was the day she had cracked, Trinity shot up on her tip toes and kissed his jaw once. “See, completely open to attack. A mob of women could have pounced on you.” She backed away grinning broadly then shrugged innocently.

Just as it felt she was making progress, Ajax plucked the necklace from Keith and gave curt thanks. Seemingly now that he got his way he wasn't much for gratitude or maybe he didn't have time to express it.

"At least he said thank you.” The comment drew Evelyn's attention back to the male with glasses, trying to make up for the son of Zeus's behaviour. "You know someone once told me the Valises will always look out for each other first. They get tunnel vision when it comes to each other to the extent you could be in immediate danger and a Valis in fraction of that, and they'd still choose each other."

A little understanding hum came from her throat. People would do just about anything for family. Evelyn cast her gaze into the endless woods. She noticed Keith shifting and getting uncomfortable in her peripheral but left him to stew.

"So you strike me as powerful and - I wanna try. I wanna try use my powers."

Despite herself she smiled. She glanced to the son of Hecate on the verge of grinning with pride. His willingness to try opened doors for Evelyn and himself no doubt. It took a few attempts where Evelyn smiled kindly when he looked to her, but in time and with some perseverance his visions were conjured. Even if they were a bit dead in appearance, they existed. And without having a relation with Hecate, she could guess conjurations and illusions were hard work. “That's amazing.”

The hunters pointed their weapons at the closest targets causing Keith to change tunes. "Woah." He began to back up.

Evelyn placed a hand gently on his back to prevent collision again. She slanted her head slightly pass his shoulder to peek at his startled expression. “You gave them life, you can take it away,” she told him calmly. After studying Keith for some time, Evelyn cast her gaze onto the hunters. She had utter faith in the son of Hecate and remained cool. Evelyn entirely grasped the potential danger, but she had to place confidence in him too.

Her hands slid to his shoulders and Evelyn took a deep breath in, then out pointedly, hoping Keith would follow suit to center himself.

Mason looked away, shifting his gaze from her. Andy knew that look. She exhaled softly but waited silent and patient for him to speak up and protest. "I want to see him too. I just think you've had a big day and....you're not entirely ready," he finally said.

Andy tucked her top lip gently between her teeth while nodding her head. Big day, big week... big year. She felt like she hasn't been able to a get a break since came to camp. Everything seemed to bubble up and over flow one after the other, without a moment to breathe. She was so used to being overwhelmed and worrying about something that the thought of having a normal day was lost on her anymore. Mason wasn't trying to hurt her or offend her, but simply cared about how much she was putting herself through in the span of a couple hours.

"I'll go with you. Of course I'll go with you," Mason finally answered her question. "But it's not going to be any easier." He looked her over, not looking the most pleased about her eagerness to hunt down her brother. He then turned his back to her to give her some privacy, but Andy didn't move. "When you're ready."

Maybe Mason was right. So often she was the one trying to talk him down and get him to think rationally. Now it seemed as though the shoe was on the other foot. She wanted to go find her brother, stare him... or whatever he was in the eye and hope that seeing her was enough. But it was all false hope that, in the end, would only hurt her more. And she'd be lying if she said she was in a good mental state to handle that.

"Maybe you're right," she said barely above a whisper. "I need a second," Andy mumbled as she walked past Mason and headed into her bathroom. She shut the door behind her and locked it. She leaned back against the cool tile wall, her chest heaving on the edge of hyperventilating. Andy looked at her reflection in the mirror as she tried to calm herself, and what stared back at her was a ghost of herself. Gaunt, with dark circles under her eyes. Her nose was engulfed in deep shades of purple and blue, while dried blood stained her upper lip and the top of her shirt.

She hated being such a burden. Andy, for so long, was the person who was there for everyone else. And now she was person who was a zombie. She should have accepted their support, but she hated herself like this. At every turn Andy pushed her friends away not wanting to drag them down with her. A knot grew in her stomach as she thought about going back out into her room and tightened more when what she was really going to do crossed her mind.

Andy waved her hand over the mirror, instantly cleaning up the dirt and blood from her face. All the while casual clothes replaced her training attire, leaving what she wore earlier than day in a pile on the floor. Without a word to Mason, Andy opened the window in the bathroom and climbed out, landing in the grass below with a quiet thud. She felt bad leaving Mason and Trinity waiting for her, but she needed air. She loved her friends, but she was exhausted. Tired of wearing a brave face from sun up to sun down. Tired of saying she was fine when she wasn't. And tired of making others worry about her when it was out of their control, even her own.

She wondered her way through the woods, avoiding the paths in case someone decided to chase after her. Somehow Andy managed to find a small cliff overlooking the lake. And for the first time in days she felt like she could breathe. Andy walked to the edge and slowly sat down, allowing her feet to hang over the edge. She closed her eyes, enjoying the sensation of the breeze in her hair as she conjured an ice pack in her hand. With grumble to herself about her purple face, she raised the pack to her nose then laid back on the ground and stared up at the sky.

Sylas watched begrudgingly as his sister detoured away from their cabin with Ji-Hyun. Meddling was what Eris children were good at but he couldn't help but sneer at the thought of his sister spending time with demigods of weak and worthless Gods like Hypnos. Such a waste of time. The only people worth manipulating were those with real power or standing in the camp. The ones constantly at each others' throats or at the heart of this ridiculous excuse of a camp.

He groaned to himself as he pushed off the tree beside him and redirected himself back to the main part of camp. Thankfully most of the soreness from the fight with Andy had seemed to wear off, although he was sure her rage had only started. The mere thought of the anger brewing in the girl made him smile. It wasn't a long fight but it was enough... Just enough for him to persuade her subconscious and plant seeds of discord within here. He hadn't been at camp very long but from what he saw, she was one of the few things that kept Mason and the Valises from ripping each other apart. Now wouldn't that be a sight.

As Sylas made his way back to the main hall to find someone to make his time less boring, he couldn't help but notice a trio closely cluttered together. His brows quirked as his pace slowed, watching them curiously. No doubt new to the camp by the way they never left each others' sides nor seem to know where to go or what to do. He pursed his lips, slipping his hands into his pockets and lightly kicked a near by rock.

Since there were no better takers, Sylas decided to watched where they wondered to. As they approached the stables, he finally took to walking and followed behind the blonde trio. He wasn't in a rush to follow after them and would rather he stumble upon the newbies rather than blatantly look like he chased after them. He slowed upon reaching the entrance, propping himself against the doorframe just in time to hear one of them introduce himself to a visually perturbed Alex. "Hello there, my name is Ethan Knox and my companions and I are new arrivals to this camp. I was wondering if the stables was open to all campers here. If not we'll leave an get out of your hair."

Sylas chuckled behind the group with a slight smile. "Looks like the Counselors aren't giving proper orientations."

“You kissed me." Wes didn't fight his smile and it only seemed to grow when Trin couldn't fight hers as well.

"Is that what that was?” he teased with a playful smirk.

“It’s okay. It was... nice.” Wes's gaze followed hers as it dropped to her hand that still clutched the fabric of his shirt. He laughed softly as she released her hold and apologized. “Oh, sorry.” He tried to take her hand in his but she dropped it too quickly and took a step back. Wes sighed softly letting his own hand drop back to his side.

Trinity respected his decision to not chase after the hell hound he happened to befriend in capture the flag. He may have persuaded the beast to his side but that's not where she belonged. He never liked the taming of wild animals who deserved to be free. But by the look on Trin's face she was about to dive into serious territory. So, instead of speaking he stood their silent and waited for her to say whatever was on her mind.

“But,” the blonde added, holding up her index finger. Wes raised a brow curiously. “Just to be a classic party pooper, if you weren't who you were, tell me you understand those things would rip us to shreds.” He had half of a mind to make a joke at that moment. But something told him that even under Trinity's light tone there was a seriousness and worry. It was nothing new to anyone that Wes not a seasoned fighter... in the slightest. And made dumb decisions. He gave a subtle nod of his head toward her showing that he understood.

“Did you know you have one arm now? And uh, that makes you more vulnerable to attacks. Especially towards predatory animals and creatures, they pick up on it like-” Trinity then snapped her fingers.

"Shit? I have one arm!?"

Wes feigned shock with a huge grin on his face. His chuckled slowly faded away as Trinity closed the distance to him. One hand grasped his shoulder, the other pressed his chest causing him to take in a quick breath. “What if I just dug my claws in now?” He glanced down slightly at her hand, then met her gaze once again.

Trinity then smirked teasingly. “Or had a knife?” With a movement of her wrist, cold metal was pressed against the warm skin of Wes's neck. He raised his chin slightly at the touch and even found himself smirking back down at her. Anyone else should have felt unbelievably intimidated in that situation. Trinity was one of the most deadly people at camp... And she was holding a blade at his throat. Quit poetically she held his life in his hands. Yet Wes was calm.

Seeing Trinity like the predator she was only made him fall for her more. He never met a woman so powerful. No one would dare cross her or second guess her abilities. She could kill him in an instant, before Wes could even try to fight back. But under her intimidating display, he could see glimpses of her protectiveness... and worry for his well being. Wes didn't falter though. He stood his ground and held her gaze without wavering.

The blonde kept the blonde there for a long moment still. Then she dropped it and in that moment, Wes released the breath he hadn't realized he was holding in. Trinity then closed the distance between them, shifting to the tips of her toes to place a gentle kiss upon his jaw. Wes's stoic expression cracked to another ridiculous grin. He was half tempted to grab her while she was close and kiss her again. But he restrained himself. A hard task indeed.

“See, completely open to attack. A mob of women could have pounced on you,” she said with an innocent shrug and a cheeky grin.

Seeing as how they might be waiting a long while for Andy to reemerge from her cabin, Wes lowered himself and took a seat on a near by tree stump. "Well..." He finally spoke up, grin still plastered on his faze his left hand reached out and took her hand. "I don't want a mob of women." His smile grew as he gently tugged Trinity toward him and guided her to take a seat on his left leg. Part of him had a feeling she'd fight him on that. She was an independent woman and things went slow for her, which he respected without question. But Wes wasn't trying to make a move on her. He simply wanted the brief moment they had alone to sit with her.

"And you know..." he added, casually wrapping his arm around her waist, resting his hand on her hip. "If you're worried about me. You could just tell me to not be an idiot and get myself killed," he said with a soft chuckle as he looked up at her. Of course, they both knew that asking that only went so far. His stupidity lost him his arm and it could easily take his life as well. He wasn't much of a fighter. They knew that. He could only imagine the scarier thought for her was that he would stupidly get himself killed for her without hesitation. Wes's expression grew a little more serious as he sighed and let his cheek rest against Trinity's shoulder.

Emery cursed quietly to herself as she began the trek back through the forest. Of course it was nice that it was no longer raining - on top of admitting defeat, she didn't want to turn up at camp soaked - but she wished she could at least have said she made an effort for the flag. She was sure their defenders had at least tried to do their job, but it was hard not to feel disgruntled. She didn't like to look stupid.

Something buzzed around her face, and she raised a hand to wave it away. "Please don't," she said, trying to keep the irritable tone out of her voice. Still it persisted, buzzing a message into Emery's ear that made her stop. "Okay, I mean, we're not friends, though. I'm sure she's fine. If I go sit with her for a while will that make you happy? Fine." The insect flew down into the undergrowth and out of sight, and Emery changed course, heading in a vague uphill direction.

Some ten minutes later she broke through the tree line, emerging into sunlight. A small cliff rose up in front of her, and a figure lay on the ground right at the top, dark hair spread out on the ground. Emery started up the path, letting her footsteps announce her. She pulled up beside Andy, dropping down to sit, cross-legged, on the ground beside her. "Can I help with your nose, or would you rather be left alone?" she asked bluntly, looking out over the lake instead of at Andy. "Looks like you got yourself a hell of a beating."

"Yeah, Sylas seems like he might like a good scuffle," Ji-hyun said absently as he opened the door to his cabin, waving Sloane ahead of him. He closed the door behind them, then realised the state of his cabin and darted around Sloane. Being a slob in private was one thing, but having his messy cabin seen by someone else was another matter entirely.

Books and clothes were piled around haphazardly, and the bed was unmade, the blanket having been kicked aside in the morning and left where it fell - typical of a boy Ji-hyun's age, in other words. All it was missing was band posters on the walls.

"Sorry, just a moment," Ji-hyun gasped, trying to shift his things elsewhere so Sloane could at least have somewhere to sit. He moved some books from a chair to the table, adding to the few already stacked there, and swung the chair around, offering it to her. "If I'd known someone was coming in I would have tidied up this morning," he added apologetically, looking somewhat sheepish. He settled himself on the bed, remembering at the last moment to keep his hand away from the sheets to avoid staining them with his blood. No reason to add to the mess. "Um, yes. I have a first aid kit in the cabinet." He got to his feet again, heading for the cabinet where he pulled a small kit out, which he held out to Sloane.

Mason didn't want to hurt Andy's feelings, he just wanted to be honest with her. And having a confident friend suddenly doubt was surprisingly tough. "Maybe you're right. I need a second." Andy headed into her bathroom and only once the door closed did his shoulders sag and he sighed out. He didn't know what he was doing. He was probably saying the wrong things and upsetting her further. Maybe he needed to slip in a few harmless lies instead. Something to make her feel better.

Image Mason slowly paced the cabin. He didn't know what girls did in there, whether it was cry or beautify themselves but Andy was taking some time. The girl was near ruined though so she might have taken some extra time. Steph always took her time and it was a scary thing when that ritual was interrupted, and Andy, she was more than entitled to it so Mason let her sort herself out.

Standing was good for a while and he didn't want to make an impression that he was making himself at home but he needed a seat, his legs becoming somewhat heavy. He found a chair and sat but he still felt restless. He began searching for something to preoccupy himself, something to read, some art to ponder, but Andy's cabin was not that stimulating. He blew out his lips trying to hold his patience, but he hadn't a heard a noise in a while. She could have fainted, but even then he was convinced he would have heard her fall. Mason sprang back to his feet and walked to the bathroom door for peace of mind and knocked on it twice. "Hey, you okay in there?" He waited a couple of seconds, ear nearly pressed to the door to be received by absolute silence. "Andy?" He waited again but there was nothing.

Mason left Andy's cabin. Ignoring him was a blunt hint as any, still he would have liked some final communication like "I don't want to talk," or "I need time alone". He marched to his secluded cabin, buried under the mountain, shaking his head to himself. That's what he got for trying to be supportive. Maybe she forgot he was in the same boat as her; a rough place with the Valises, lost a sister and a best friend. He ripped off his war clothes and replaced them with some lazy lounge ones then dumped himself on his couch.

As far as he could foresee this would make up the rest of his day. Initially he was hoping at some point after capture the flag to have words with Theo, try to get him on side or at least stop idolizing Zeus's kids, but now he just couldn't be bothered to ruffle feathers or lift a finger to make people see sense. What did anyone ever do for him anyway

Hecate| HEX: #8b9068 | Smart/Casual

He bumped into Evelyn and reached back quickly to steady himself and her but there was no need, and just as quickly he looked back to threat ahead. Three hunters with gadgets attached to their belts and straps but the most concerning was the one with a crossbow in hand.

“You gave them life, you can take it away,” she cooed behind him. Keith absorbed her words and her presence finding her grounding.

As they stalked closer, his nerves went up a notch again. But Evelyn was there, placing her hands on his shoulders and breathing deeply. Keith inhaled then exhaled. He gave them life, he could take it away. He could erase these fake beings from existence. He put his arm in front of him and swept his hand to the left. They only staggered like a strong gust of wind had come through. He shifted his weight from foot to foot then closed his eyes. He had to remain in control. He wasn't responsible just for himself but Evelyn as well. Keith had to see them as materials, not beings, they had no history so they had no life. For some reason that struck a chord with him. Parts of his own past were blank like a best friend in childhood; everyone had one but he couldn't see a face or name, he couldn't remember a favorite toy or lullaby.
An odd clink made Keith glance to the loaded crossbow. No more time for thoughts and failure. Keith raised his hand again with new found determination. His conjurations vanished in thin smoke, but not before the hunter released the arrow. His other hand shot out to repel it but it was far too close, and far too late.

ImageHis body jerked back. "AGH!" He immediately clutched at the arrow in his abdomen. Keith puffed out his cheeks to prevent from yelling out in pain again and inhaled the breath through grit teeth. He let his legs fold from under him. "I can't..." he began shakily. I can't get the bleeding to stop or the pain to stop. It made him want to curl up in agony. God it was bad. "I can't get the arrow out, I can't do it."

He must have looked a pathetic sight, begging and hoping for her magical aid somehow from something self-inflicted, but he didn't care. He threw his head back and groaned. He only wanted to be rid of the pain. He wasn't as sturdy as the others.

"Take me to the med hut." Evelyn approached and obliged, though it was a slow journey there. Keith tried not to give her his full weight and help but he faltered in step often and he felt terribly weak so a very slow and steady pace had to be the way.

In the med hut staff tended to him promptly. He took off his sweater and top with difficulty, revealing a series of scars on his torso. They gave him something for the pain then treated the fresh wound, but as they tended to that business Keith tried to focus on Evelyn and plead with his eyes for her not to leave. They were strangers surrounding him and he could have used a friend among the mix. He didn't know what they were doing and he didn't want to know, so he focused on her, the color of her hair, her eyes, the greatest distraction.

But Keith had to look away. He didn't know why he played bold because he knew he wasn't as powerful as other camp attendants and it cost him to think otherwise. As the pain subsided the embarrassment kicked in. "I'm sorry," he said, his brows knitting together unable to look at her.

"Well...I don't want a mob of women." Trinity allowed herself to be pulled onto his leg somewhat reluctantly but she didn't protest either. All she gave was a playful eye roll and that wasn't at his actions as much as what he said. Besides, once perched there she discovered it wasn't the worse seat in the world. She wrapped an arm around his neck for support.

“But the -”

"And you know..." Trinity stiffened as his arm came around her waist and rested his hand on her hip. This time she didn't know if it was because he spoke or because of his touch, but she ceased her argument on the spot. "If you're worried about me. You could just tell me to not be an idiot and get myself killed.”

Trinity frowned in confusion at the suggestion. “I mean I could, but that’s not very fun, or effective,” she pointed out then cracked another smile. Inside, she knew none of it was effective. He wouldn't budge his ways for anybody and they were fine to make light of it until things ended badly. Trinity probably could have nicked him, hell, stabbed him outright and he wouldn't have hit her or used his powers. Wes settled into her shoulder, but he didn't get to rest while her mind ran on unpleasant scenarios. Her fingers slid up into his hair and she tugged on it. She grinned and quickly pat his head apologetically, tilting her head to the side as she observed him.

“Now, before you rudely interrupted,” she teased, “tell me how the lover responds to love then. Fair enough, you're not textbook definition of a fighter, but say some girls were sexy and charming and they wanted a piece of Wesley Preston, do you feed their appetite?” Since the beginning it might have seemed Trinity was painting him in this sinful womanizer way with her questions, but in truth she was always curious about the other end of the spectrum. Trinity could imagine it was only natural for Aphrodite's children to indulge in the desire of others and themselves, like it was for her to fight.

She frowned as another question occurred, though bit her lip as it was particularly awkward. “So...so, erhm, who becomes insatiable in that case, when they sleep together?” she clarified. “Is it Aphrodite or....the people?” Maybe it was none but a lot of myths floated around about Aphrodite and her children and their....particular skill sets.

Then more and more questions started knocking around in her mind, getting more intrusive and endangering the little time and moment they were having together. Trinity thought of his ex. The ex she never saw, who's name she didn't even know, and never knew about but she was in her head. Trinity tightened her arm around Wes's neck. She spoke softly to him, “Can you tell me about - ” She was cut off yet again, this time by a slam in the distance.

Mason was storming away from Andy's cabin. “Oh boy,” she mumbled. And she thought they had done so well. Trinity got to her feet but apart of her told her to give Andy some space. She might have pushed Mason away just to get it. “Should I go check on her?” Then another part of her wanted to quickly pick up where she left off with Wes too.

She gasped and her heart lurched a second time when the arrow made impact. She glanced down expecting to see the arrow had pierced through the both of them, but Keith had taken the grunt of the damage. He screamed out then collapsed. Consoling him would fall short of a good deed or redemption for her guilt. In truth she didn’t know what she could do.

"I can't...I can't get the arrow out, I can't do it."

Evelyn fell to her knees by him slowly. “You have to leave it in.” Her panicked acquaintance with ragged breathing who was writhing in pain. “Ssh, ssh” she soothed and finally put her hand on his chest with enough pressure to keep him still. Evelyn glanced to his eyes sadly then the arrow protruding from his body. She placed her other hand on his head and closed her eyes trying to suppress the pain for him. She drew her hands away from him eyeing him anxiously.

"Take me to the med hut," was all he said. Evelyn nodded and tried to carry Keith to his desired destination, ducking under his arm while wrapping her own around him. When he staggered, she did, although she knew she had to be strong, keeping her eyes ahead. She held Keith a little tighter and marched on.

Once in the med hut, Evelyn gave the workers their space but watched on with concern. She was a responsible party in this as well. Her fingers curled up to her lips nervously and she rose on her tiptoes to see past the heads and bodies that surrounded him. What was beyond them was a sad sight, her eyes flickering to the other numerous scars across his body.

"I'm sorry," he said. Evelyn crossed her arms. He was completely wrong to be sorry, although she did deserve his ignoring her.

Once the aid cleared out she approached him, the guilt in her gut amplifying. “I’m sorry for pushing you into it, truly. If you weren't ready I should have respected that, only you know you best.” Upon getting closer she could see more scar tissue. It was almost enough to render her speechless, but she found herself beyond a point of reservation and control. “What happened?” she blurted wide eyed. “Has someone been hurting you?” Evelyn looked to him expectantly.

Andy heard the rustling in the trees behind her long before footsteps approaching. She was so exasperated by everything that she didn’t care what it was. Camper? Friend? Foe?... Hades? It didn’t matter at that point. Andy didn’t look over to the source of the footsteps until the person sat down beside her. She didn’t know who to expect. A pissed of Mason ready to argue with her for leaving without a word? Trinity? Maybe Ajax trying to apologize to her again for the… She’s lost track how many times he’s apologized to her since they’ve been together.

But no… It was Emery. Andy pulled the ice pack from her face and slowly sat up. She gave the girl her best smile, but she knew it wasn’t very convincing.

"Can I help with your nose, or would you rather be left alone?" Emery asked as she looked out over the lake. "Looks like you got yourself a hell of a beating."

Andy’s brows furrowed, taking her a moment to remember that Athena children could heal. She smiled, letting her hands, holding the ice pack fall into her lap. "Yeah," she chuckled weakly. "Had a run in with Sylas during the game. Just a nice little souvenir." She motioned to her nose as she talked. It wasn’t a comfortable wound, but Andy was never one overly worried about her appearance.

"If you don’t mind… I would greatly appreciate it. I don’t know how I would be able to repay you." Andy ran her finger along the ice pack. After a moment or two she made it vanish under her touch. "I could conjure something for you… Anything you want." She smiled softly as she brushed loose brunette hairs behind her ear. "Or, ya know, bore you with boring conversation about stuff you probably don’t care about. Sadly I’m not as entertaining as I used to be." Andy laughed, shrugging her shoulders slightly.

[color= #68838b]"Yeah, Sylas seems like he might like a good scuffle,"[/color] said before he opened the door to his cabin and motioned her inside.

Sloane slowly entered the cabin, but quickly moved aside as Ji-hyun began to run around and clean his room bed he could. She couldn’t help but chuckle slightly. She didn’t care how clean or messy it was. Honestly, it was the first cabin she’s been in aside from her own. It wasn’t like people were lining up to befriend the awkward weird girl who could probably make them all go crazy.

"Sorry, just a moment," Ji-hyun said as he continued to rush around, clearing a chair and gathering things together best he could.

"It’s ok," Sloane said as she looked around the room. Instead of focusing on the mess she took in his way of life. The little bits of decoration, the places he seemed to enjoy the most… Of course, the bed, which was no surprise, considering his parentage. Even in the clutter it felt far more welcoming and warm than her own cabin. But one major thing was different… No Sylas. She couldn’t help but be envious of that fact.

Ji-hyun turned the now cleared chair around and offered it to her as he spoke. "If I'd known someone was coming in I would have tidied up this morning." He went to take a seat on the bed but quickly stood back up. "Um, yes. I have a first aid kit in the cabinet."

Ji-hyun went to grab it before Sloane could offer to retrieve it herself. She gave a slight smile as she reached out and took the kit from him, then motioned for him to take a seat on the bed opposite her. "You didn’t need to pick up for me. This is your home now, I’m just a guest," Sloane said as she opened the first aid kit and began to rummage through it’s contents for what she needed.

Sloane paused, tucking her bottom lip between her teeth as she thought. "Umm… It might be better to do this in the bathroom." She closed the box and moved to her feet. Sloane didn’t wait for him to agree or disagree. Instead she gently took his non-injured hand and led him to his bathroom. She put down the toilet lid, then gently motioned for him to sit down.

She set the first aid kit down on the counter and began to pull out the things she’d need: alcohol, gauze, ointment, needle, thread, tape. Sloane made sure her hair was out of her face before she gently took Ji-hyun’s wounded hand. "It looks worse than it is," she said as she turned on tepid water and carefully guided his blood covered hand beneath it. She was careful to be gentle as she wiped his skin clean, avoiding putting the wound directly under the water source.

Sloane turned off the water and grabbed the alcohol. "This part won’t be pleasant… I’m sorry," she said sheepishly as she removed the cap then took hold of his hand again. She waited for his ok, then poured the alcohol over the wound. Sloane could only imagine how much it burned but she knew an injury this deep had to be flushed to avoid infection. Ji-hyun would be thankful for it later.

Once it was clean, Sloane kneeled on the ground before him. She took a towel and dried his hand as gently as she could manage. She leaned in closer to assess the wound, trying to gauge how deeply he was cut. "I think… You may need a couple stitches. Three, maybe five. But it looks pretty deep."

Sloane made quick work of stitching him up, trying to make the discomfort pass as swiftly as possible. She then held his hand in her left, while her right gently rubbed ointment along the cut. And finally, she wrapped his hand so that no new bacteria or anything else could get into it. "I don’t know if it’s the prettiest mending… But it’s better than being forced to stay in the med hut overnight for a little cut." Sloane smiled up a him slightly before she stood back up and began to clean up after herself.

“I mean I could, but that’s not very fun, or effective,” Trinity said with a slight smile. Wes saw through it though. They both knew the truth… That no matter how much she begged him to be careful and to think of himself, he couldn’t. Not when she was more important than himself. Of course, she’d disagree. But that was what relationships were like right? Although relationship was a loose term… Wes was committed to Trinity, but they never put a label on what they were. He didn’t want to pressure her and he was content waiting. But in his eyes, he’d do anything for her… And dying for her fell under that category. He was almost certain she knew that he was that type of person and unfortunately, no matter how much she persisted, his nature wouldn’t change.

He smiled contently as they sat there, letting his eyes close when her fingers first ran through his hair. But Wes’ eyes quickly shot open when she gave his hair a tug rather than affectionately playing with his hair. He raised his head to look over at her with furrowed brows only to be met by a sly grin and a pat on his head. Wes rolled his eyes slightly and was about to rest his head against her shoulder, but before he could Trinity broke the silence.

“Now, before you rudely interrupted, tell me how the lover responds to love then. Fair enough, you're not textbook definition of a fighter, but say some girls were sexy and charming and they wanted a piece of Wesley Preston, do you feed their appetite?”

Wes’ brows furrowed as he sighed, adjusting how he was sitting so that he could look at her. It seemed just enjoying each other’s company wasn’t on the menu. “You don’t like silence very much, do you?” he teased. “Well…” he started, trying to think of his answer. He had never been asked something like that before. “Before camp… Before you, I would have went with them.” His gaze drifted off, focusing on some insignificant piece of dirt rather than look at her. “I wasn’t a good person before camp, not to say I’m much better now… But your assumptions of the type of person I was… They aren’t wrong.”

It wasn’t easy admitting to the girl he cared for the kind of person he was. Wes could tell she was trying to see how he used to be, maybe to see if he wasn’t like the stereotype of Aphrodite kids… But the truth was… he was. Womanizer was an adequate term. He didn’t know the number of women and honestly, Wes didn’t want to sit down and figure it out. Since he’s been at camp he’s changed, tried to be a better person and thinking back on how he used to be only filled him with disgust… for himself.

Wes could see Trinity’s wheels turning before she asked another question. “So...so, erhm, who becomes insatiable in that case, when they sleep together? Is it Aphrodite or... the people?”

“I uh…” Wes struggled for words, clenching his jaw slightly as he thought. “It depends on the people. I don’t think I can give a clear answer. Some people are like vampires when it comes to their lust… I don’t think it has to do with a connection to Aphrodite, but personal appetite.”

Trinity sat there silent for a while, but out of the corner of his eye Wes could see the thoughts and questions all over his face. Her expression made his stomach turn and not while his gaze diverted. Her arm tightened around his neck, causing his breath to catch for a brief moment before he looked over at her. “Can you tell me about - ”

Then the sound of Andy’s cabin door closing followed by Mason walking off without a word caught his attention. Wes didn’t know if he was thankful for the interruption as he felt the tension leave him… Or angered by it. Deep down Wes knew these questions and the conversation was inevitable. Maybe it would be good to get it out of the way sooner rather than later so Trinity could decide if she could accept… or not accept the person he was and, in part, still is.

“Oh boy,” Trinity mumbled before standing up. Wes sighed softly, letting his hand fall from her side and rest on his knee. “Should I go check on her?”

Wes pushed off his knee as he stood up and ran a hand through his hair. “You know Andy better than me.” He could tell Andy has been acting weird for a while now. Every since the new year started, it was like a gut feeling inside him said that something was off. Just something small, almost like a tumor that was slowly growing inside her. Wes wasn’t all knowing but he could feel something dark when he was around her and it wasn’t Andy, it was foreign. Wes hadn’t told anyone because how do you explain something like that to someone else and expect them to believe you? He had felt it around some of the other campers as well. He couldn’t help but wonder if it was something else, but he had no proof beyond a guy feeling. So, he remained silent on the matter.

“Maybe she needs girl time.” He shrugged slightly. “She’s dealing with her brother… But she is also dealing with her boyfriend and her best friend constantly trying to kill each other. I can’t imagine it’s easy for her to open up completely to either one of them.” Wes sighed, looking in the direction Mason disappeared in. “I could go talk to him. I don’t know how much help I could be… But I’m not a Valis.”
