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 :)

XXAs Lise and McKenna strode side by side through the brush, Lise pondered their partnership. More specifically, she pondered her partner. Peering at the blonde at the edge of her vision, Lise broke what had previously been a decidedly silent wander.

XX“So, what’s your deal?”

XXShe smiled sheepishly, “Like, everyone here seems to have a deal. Some tragic backstory, or life-changing, destiny-forming event.”

XXLeaning down, she pulled a rapier from its hidden place beneath the fallen leaves. She weighed it in her hand, smiling in satisfaction.

XXMcKenna had raised an eyebrow at the sudden question - people usually didn’t care to inquire about her past. Nonetheless, she wasn’t the type of person who’d be closed off from talking about it.

XX“Nothing much,” McKenna said offhandedly. “I grew up in a Serbian orphanage in Kragujevac, and was grouped in the same unit as two deaf people and someone with ADHD. Stuff happened, someone took me away, and I came here. What about you?”

XXLise shrugged, wearing a wan smile.

XX“Me? Oh, nothing exciting. Paris, born and raised. Shortly after I learnt to speak, Dad realised I was a highkey genius, and pretended that I got it from him to feed his ego. But I went off the rails a little bit in high school- teenage rebellion, and all that. He, uh... wasn’t a fan. I messed up pretty badly at this one house party, so he sent me here.”

XXPressing her tongue to the inside of her cheek, she smiled wryly.

XX”I’m not gonna lie- my whole life reeks of privilege.”

XX“I can tell,” McKenna said bluntly. “But it’s stupid to judge a person’s character based off of their financial background. Rich kids can be humble and poor kids can be lazy as fuck. Although I would not call you a humble person, I wouldn’t hate you just because you were privileged and I wasn’t.”

XXLise let out a bark of laughter, “I'm touched.”

XXSuddenly, Lise paused, and her eyes narrowed. Raising her hand, she gestured for McKenna to stop.

XX“Wait- there’s someone coming.”

XXMoments after speaking, a familiar face appeared through the foliage.

XX“Dukey Dearest, how you doin’?”

XX“Congratulations, girls. You make quite the team.”

XXAs Duke dropped to his knees, Lise’s left brow rose in response. Just as quickly, however, she smirked, wandering over to him with her typical swagger. As she reached down to take his band, she shot him a smug smile.

XX“How accommodating.”

XXDuke’s movements were lightning fast, as he twisted around suddenly, his leg sweeping to catch Lise’s feet, and send her tumbling to the ground.

XXOr, at least, such was what would have happened. Instead, however, Lise’s expression remained just as smug, her form unshaken as his leg passed right through her. Raising her now-solidified right foot, she kicked Duke hard in the shoulder, catching his band with the edge of her recently acquired rapier. She then turned back to McKenna, waving the makeshift flag with a suitably victorious grin.

XX“Well, that was fast,” McKenna stated dryly. “Sorry, brother - gotta get back to the hall.”

XXSmiling, Lise plucked the band from her swordpoint, and tucked it into her back pocket. Shooting Duke a final smile, she looked to McKenna, and pointed her rapier towards the forest ahead of her.

XX“Allon-sy!”

ALEXANDRIA VALIS
DAUGHTER OF ZEUS
TEAM SPARTANS!
Hex: #d63b71


Alex ran as fast as she could, manoeuvred around the few people in her way, and kept going. When she cleared the stairway, she risked a backward glance to see that Mason was, in fact, chasing her. She began to run again. Quickly, she hid behind a building, hoping he'd run by and miss her, but the second she turned around... he was there. He grabbed her by the throat and began to squeeze the life out of her with his bare hands.

She jolted herself awake. The entire room a blur at first, as she slid her right hand up towards the slight pain over her shoulder and felt the material dressing that had been placed there as she kept her eyes on the rectangular ceiling of the hut. It was really more of a large tent than a hut.

"Al,"

With her hand still on the dressing, she turned her head. A strand of her hair slid from her face, and with one blink of her eyes, her gaze was on theirs. She looked pail from the amount of blood she had lost.

"Are you okay?" as she began to sit up, he got up from where he was sitting on the other bed which was an arm's length away and began to steady her with his hands. "Steady" he whispered to her.

Alex winced a little until she was sitting up properly.

"How do you feel?" he fussed.

"I'm fine." she was trying to convince herself more than anything. "Just a little sore is all."

AJAX VALIS
SON OF ZEUS
TEAM TROJANS!
Hex: Green
"It's okay to not be tough all the time, you know."
"I said I'm fine."
"I know, but we both know that's not the truth."

Alex huffed air out of both notrils as she slipped her feet into the boots that the nurses had no doubt removed for her so she could get comfy. "I don't want to talk about it right now, okay? I'll speak to you some time." he held her arm, his touch gentle. He furrowed down at her as she looked up at him and stood up.

"I feel like you no longer turn to me anymore. What's happened to you?"
"I grew up..." she told him in a quiet tone before heading out of the hut as Ajax watched her leave.

She stood outside the huts door for a second as she closed her eyes, regretting already about not opening up to him. She carried on walking, heading to the hall where everyone else would be. Ajax ended up there too once Alex sat in the corner of the hall, her eyes glancing around at those who had failed the game.

No torture, no nod of acknowledgement, no fleeing, but a swift death-even if it did accompany a grin, followed by an eventual approach and, "You're the last person I expected to show up."

She couldn’t help it when her eyes narrowed on him. Valid as his point may have been, there still existed such thing as common courtesy. “I’m going to translate that to thank you.” Since asking for it would be delusional. Already it felt a mistake to spare him but she’d have to deal with that mistake for a short time more. Surely some team was closing in on victory.

"Have any Spartans crossed your path yet?"

“No. Things have been quiet for me,” she admitted. While the small-talk could have ended there, she wasn't quite content to be so merciful as silent. As they walked, she paid him a side-glance before looking straight ahead again. “So in future, for you to avoid disappointment again, do I let you become a beast's chew toy?” If that was the case it would hardly be a problem, in fact more like consent to leave him be no matter what predicament he found himself in. Regardless, that likely would be Evelyn's new action from there onwards: to do nothing. However, verbal consent was always a bonus.

Not much fascinated Harley to the extent that the golden glow of Nik's powers and small chant did. Her eyes were glued on the colour emitting from their hands, and as it faded, indicating the spell coming to an end, she looked up to him. Harley paid him a grateful smile. In truth she didn't know what to expect, it was her first heal by magic but she didn't expect something so soothing.

“Thank you.” It wasn’t a perfect fix up but it was definitely an improvement. By a large scale.

Harley did a quick scan of the squad on defense with their guards down. It was a slightly more relaxed and social environment back at the Spartan's base. “So you folks got much action? No Trojans charged through with a battle cry yet?” Evidently the answer would be no but Harley wanted a little longer in the protected zone, plus procrastination from putting her hands on the line again.

“Wanna trade places?” Harley beamed as if that would convince Nik.

On the other hand she fully acknowledged his use at their base. It was strategic and where he was best kept. Besides, if any harm came to that angel of a man, that'd be on her conscience for a terribly long time.

"From what? It was just a scratch," Trinity responded once Wes had finished addressing her wound. The makeshift bandage wasn’t perfect or pretty, but it did the job. Sure, it wasn’t a deadly wound or anything like that. But, that didn’t mean Wes enjoyed seeing her bleed. He usually wasn’t much help, more of a hinderance, but at least this was something he could help with. Small, but it was something.

After he had mounted his beast and offered his blonde partner in crime his hand, Trinity stared between him and the hound. “I…” Wes’ brows furrowed as she seemed to be apprehensive. "I don't think that's a good idea. I've got like....its cousin's blood on me," she muttered.

Wes sighed, rolling his eyes in a teasing manner. When Trinity called the beast an it a gentle growl rumbled in the hound’s throat. "She," he corrected, then held up his index finger. "Hold up, It was you who told me to use my abilities, blondie… And now that I have…" Wes’ voiced trailed off as he let his hand fall to the beast’s neck, petting it softly. There was no winning with Trinity.

"I promise I'll be beh-" Trinity started before the sound of something off in the distance cut her off. Wes’ beast dug her claws into the dirt, lowering her body toward the ground ready to pounce. She growled, sniffing and scanning the tree line around them. "I'll catch up," she said toward him in a hushed tone. Before Wes could reply she was off investigating the noise.

The little voice in Wes’ head said something along the lines of ’Go, Wes. She can take care of herself and your one-armed self will just get in the way.’ But did he listen to that? Nope. But instead of following after her, he held his ground. He figured either someone as clumsy as himself was trying to run from him and his beast… Well, mostly the beast, Wes wasn’t much of a threat. Or it was a diversion to distract or separate them.

After a few moments of weighing his options, Wes opted to hold his ground where he was. It’d be easiest for Trinity to find him. And, he didn’t want to piss her off by following her… orrrrr go too far away so that he was unable to help if needed. He adjusted himself on top of the beast, then reached over his back and grabbed his spear. As he readied himself, Wes felt his beast stir beneath him. Even if he wanted to follow after Trin, the creature didn’t. Something about her wanted to stay right where they were… That wasn’t good.

Evelyn’s eyes narrowed at his comment, no doubt she wasn’t thrilled at the first words to come out of Sylas’ mouth. But did he care? Part of it was out of pride. It was below him to thank anyone, especially a woman, for helping him. Did he ask for help? No. If he died? Well, so be it. But, he wouldn’t have died.

"I’m going to translate that to thank you."

Ah, she was smarter than she looked. There was no way the words would cross his lips and Evelyn didn’t seem like she expected it either. He walked in step with her deciding it’d probably be better if they stayed grouped up, at least for the time being. But his steps were slow as the pain in his leg flared whenever he put weight on it. Sylas wasn’t in a rush to go chasing after the flag. He was in the game for the blood and battle, not glory. Glory is for the weak who need reassurance.

"No. Things have been quiet for me," she replied to his question. It wasn’t surprising. It’s not like they were all guaranteed to have run ins with the other team or beasts. Plus, large groups attracted more attention… Look at Ajax, Alex, Mason and Andy. Case and point.

"So in future, for you to avoid disappointment again, do I let you become a beast's chew toy?"

Sylas quirked a brow, turning his head toward her slightly. For some reason, whenever people seemed unafraid or not effected by a glimpse at his true self, he always became intrigued. "I do prefer my head attached to my shoulders," he first replied with a slight sarcastic tone. Then after a moment, he let his eyes look forward while he took on a more serious tone. "I wouldn’t blame you… or hold some grudge if you left me to die."

He glanced over at her briefly then continued. "Everyone at this camp is so worried about being a hero. Save a life. Do the heroic thing. No matter the consequences… Sometimes the braver thing to do is to not be a hero. What’s the point if it’d get yourself killed in the process?"

Sylas shrugged his shoulders. It was the raw truth. Heroes are dangerous… Some people are beyond saving. Helping them would only get yourself killed in the process. Call it selfish, but selflessness is weakness. Heroes can’t make a difference when they are dead. "The drowning man will always drag someone down with him."

Andy sat on the steps to the main hall until the ice in her rag melted, dripping blood stained water down her forearm as she held it to her face. It was surprising. She expected to see more campers eliminated, doing their walk of shame to the hall. But she only saw a few stragglers. At least no one tried to talk to her. She was grateful for that… But at the same time, she would have been happy with someone distracting her.

When her nose had long stopped bleeding and the coolness of the rag turned lukewarm, Andy finally stood. She slowly ascended the stairs and went back into the hall. She froze for a minute in the doorway when her gaze met Ajax’s. Then not a moment after they met, Andy’s head fell with her eyes locked on her feet as she beelined for the kitchen.

She tried her best to rinse the blood from the rag, but once she realized it was a lost cause, Andy just tossed it into the trash. With a sigh she looked up into the mirror. It could have been worst… Definitely could have been better but Andy still looked like Andy. The bridge of her nose was swollen and covered in a field of purple and blue that branched out beneath her eyes. But it wasn’t crooked, which luckily meant it wouldn’t need to be re-broken. It was just ugly. She could live with ugly.

Andy had half a mind to leave the hall and spend the remainder of the day in her cabin. She was prideful, and didn’t feel like dealing with anyone. But the part of her that wanted the comfort of a friend outweighed her stubbornness and pride. With a sigh, she weaved her way through the tables, her feet subconsciously carrying her over toward Mason’s table.

She slowly moved herself into the seat beside Mason. Andy didn’t say anything or even look over to meet his gaze. After a long moment of silence, she let herself lean against him, resting her head on his shoulder. "… Your new friend fucked up my face," Andy finally said, barely louder than a whisper. It wasn’t much, but it broke the silence.

"You do know you're allowed to create experiences apart from your brother?” Ji-hyun said gently. The comment took Sloane a little by surprise, causing her brows to furrow slightly. "You're allowed to be your own person, even while you're with him. Especially when you're with him."

He then paused briefly. Maybe it was to check her reaction, but Sloane didn’t say anything. She remained silent, just looking toward Ji-hyun as he finished. "Anyway, I'm just speaking from personal experience. I have an older brother - for the first decade of my life I wanted to be just like him, wanted to do everything he did, until I got down to figuring out who I was when he wasn't around. I know a little about getting your identity mixed up with your sibling’s.

"Just my two cents."


"I don’t want to be anything like my brother," Sloane snapped, nearly talking over him. The moment after the words left her lips she winced, instantly wanting to take it back and regretting her tone with Ji-hyun. She didn’t mean to be rude, but being compared to her brother turned her stomach… And terrified her. Her gaze fell her to her hands while her voiced grew quiet. "…Sorry."

Sloane was silent for a long moment. She knew Ji-hyun was only trying to help. From what she could tell he seemed like the kind of person who never tried to put a toe out of order… The type that couldn’t harm a fly. She sighed softly. "It’s complicated…" She chewed on her lip while tapping her finger tips on her leg. "But I’m not like my brother." That’s all she could say. Sloane always had to be careful with her words, especially where her brother was concerned. Not only for her own safety but for others as well. It was best no one knew the truth… This facade Sylas created hid his true monster, and if that mask kept it at bay then she’d prefer it remained.

ALEXANDRIA VALIS
DAUGHTER OF ZEUS
TEAM SPARTANS!
Hex: #d63b71


No longer wanting to remain in the same room as Mason or Andy, Alex headed outside and made her way to towards her cabin, passing the temple where it allowed the Demigods to worship their Gods. Alex stopped, changing her direction towards that temple.

As she stepped up to the statue that represented her father, she closed her eyes and hung her head down. Silence. Everything around her became nothing but white noise. From a daughter to her father she desperately wanted to be close to, her words would be spoken on the winds until they found their way to him.

"Why didn't you save her?" the faith she had for her father was beginning to weaken. Maybe her big brother was right after all. Yes, he was there to help them last year, but that wasn't going to make her forgive him. She has always loved him, always honoured him and defended him against others, but still, she could not forgive him about her mother. "It is so hard for me to not love you. She trusted you and you let her down. You allowed her to die. Did she not mean anything to you? did you use her?" The clouds above began to darken, the wind picking up from Alex's emotions influencing them. She felt like decapitating the statue.

She really believed that the new Gods were much better than the old. Especially Zeus. He never wanted anyone to undermine him or to go against his laws, or his will for righteousness.... but where was he for a mortal?

"She was finally happy and you just couldn't stand by and watch her live her life without you." She gripped the hilt of her sword tightly in her right hand. Thunder rumbled deeply across the sky.

AJAX VALIS
SON OF ZEUS
TEAM TROJANS!
Hex: Green
Ajax watched as Andy went and sat by Mason, then placed her head on his shoulder. He didn't blame her for not wanting to be close to him, but seeing her near Mason instead made him feel...jealous. He turned his back on them, busying himself by tucking in a couple of left out chairs. He tightened his hands around the back of the last chair before taking a seat in it, still keeping his back to Andy and Mason.

The entire game of capture the flag was still going on outside and as his little sister left the hall, he remained where he was. Lately, all she ever wanted was to be alone, unless it was the other men in her life that didn't bug her or fuss around her so much.

He ran a hand through his dark hair and looked towards Andy.

He couldn't blame her for defending someone she cared about, but just the words that she had projected at Alex just didn't sit right with him. He hadn't forgotten what Alex did to Mason's sister, but hating her or disowning her for it was out of the question even if that was the decent thing to do in most eyes. He didn't want to give up on her because he had faith that she had a good reason to know that it was Jennova who killed their mother. Still, Ajax could relate to a brother still mourning over the death of his sister.

He stood up and hesitated to head over there. He wanted to talk to Mason mostly, but headed in the other direction. Instead, he stood outside the hall's door to wait for the others to fall out of the game.

Elias waited, he had not been close enough to make out what was being said. He could hear the tones though, hesitant, cautious. He knew that there was not much of a chance of beating the two in combat. Now that his plan to send the two running had not worked out. He would have heard it if that beast had run off after it. Well that was not good, that would mean rather than a distractions they'd just be more on alert. Maybe he could run for it. He did not know how good his sister was at it and if he were better he might be able to separate them that way. Plus Theo was supposedly coming up behind him. Maybe he should just wait for that. He checked the wind, no it was not blowing toward them, but nor was it blowing away. Worse yet if they headed over in the direction of the stone it just might bring them down wind of him. He let a little curse for being too impulsive to think to throw it the other way.

Three choices. Fight, Run, or hide, If he were to fight he'd have his sister, from what he had heard experienced and competent and Wes. He didn't know much about him, but he had seen those beasts at work, Simply fighting one in a fair fight was not something he think he'd walk away from unharmed, and add in his sister, no, fighting outright was off the table. He could run, but he was not that far from them and did not know where the others were. Those beasts were quick, and well maybe if he got lucky he could take the beast quickly and then be ready for Trinity, and Wes, They both only had one arm, but it was still two on one, with a couple seconds between them, no that was not a winning gambit either. That left just hiding, got he hated hiding, but it seemed that was all he ever did. The world had taught him when you were outmatched, you hid, and well he'd pass on the lesson to them here. That was what this game was all about, right. Back pressing into the tree he listened with all his might to hear just what the two were doing seeing if he could get any idea what it was they were up to. Both his snapped off staff and his sword were held up close to his body. His head turned to the side of his sword arm as he listened and waited, getting ready to pull his father's speed and strength into his limbs.

As he waited there was a little bright side, he had a chance to catch his breath after the running he had done chasing after Trinity. One could only hope that a couple more small mercies would turn themselves up before that beast Wes was riding caught his scent. After all, he had no idea what the one armed Wes could do and that was something that made planning a might bit harder, but planning and planning was easier than waiting and doing nothing.

Hades | HEX: #05105E | Outfit

Image His head shifted to the movement next to him, but she didn't pay him a glance and she didn't have anything to say so Mason let the silence hang between them. Maybe she just needed someone in her corner after the rough patch with the Valis siblings. Especially since they were in the hall. She leaned against him and rested her head on his shoulder. "… Your new friend fucked up my face."
Mason smiled a little. "You're the one that told me to make friends, I can't help the quality of them. My options are pretty limited," he confessed. Not many people wanted a brooding son of Hades as company, understandably. "Your face will heal," he added more quietly, "and you'll be Mrs Athens again in no time."
Andy wasn't the kind that cared enormously about her physical appearance, but it was worth assuring all the swelling and purples and blues would fade then she'd be above beautiful again. With Mr. Athens by her side.

Mason's eyes trailed after the Valises uneasily as they left the hall. Then he cleared his throat once he was in the clearing. He wasn't sure what the rule was about bringing up the conflict in the woods but it had to be addressed. "So, thank you, for doing what you did in the woods. I know it wasn't for me and maybe I shouldn't even be thanking you but...I'm glad you were there. Hardly anyone speaks against her and him so...good of you to speak your mind, I guess."

After a moment more of quiet, Mason spoke up again. "Did you see my hot friend on the beach?" She couldn't see it leaning against his shoulder but Mason smirked smugly and it was probably best Andy was blind to his too proud features. A, for acquiring a 'friend' and b, because she was smoking. "Sure, she hasn't been seen or heard from since but to be fair...Theo kissed her last." Mason chuckled to himself.
Honestly, for today, he was done with spending energy on the Valises and talking about them. However his friend might not have felt the same so for one last time, Mason brought them up. "You can go talk to him if you want," he said quietly. "I mean..." he sighed out "I would like you to at least wait for him to apologize but I wont mind."

ImageHe blew out his lips as he headed back to the hall twisting around his shoulder. That didn't quite go as planned but he knew that was a big possibility and it was worth a try. Duke only wished he could quickly have a word with his team or check who was still active on field. Since departing from them it was literally the last he had seen of them.

Ajax was the first face of one of the people that had been defeated, waiting outside the hall. Duke smiled, oblivious to the mood surrounding him. "My go-to guess would be Trinity but she was on our side, so who got the jump on you?" As Duke came closer, Ajax’s mood became apparent and Duke’s smile slowly faded. A bad time for jests.
He stood by Ajax waiting for words or a grunt, or some sign to indicate where his head was at. Sometimes even silence spoke for itself.
Or a storm. Duke's brows furrowed slightly as he looked towards the central point of the storm, then downward as if he could pierce the source through one hundred obstacles this far way with his eyes. Alex.
Eventually, he sighed. "I'm going to get something to eat," he pat Ajax's shoulder once and went inside the hall to avoid a potential downpour.
Duke picked up a fruit and tossed it in the air to himself as he took a seat. Only few were gathered in the hall which meant they had either grown bored and wandered away or the Trojans and Spartans were putting up one hell of a fight. Good.

ImageIt got to the point he sat guard on the ground with his legs crossed and back to a tree. Keith threw up dirt to see which direction the wind would carry it. Unsurprisingly it wasn't that fascinating or long lasting of a distraction.

A small part of him thought he could pass the time with a bit of mischief, conjure something to amuse himself, but he quickly dismissed the idea. Keith wasn't quite as talented to just throw his magic around like that, nor devious or destructive. And even if he conjured something how could he control it? He couldn't risk an illusion because then he'd lose sight of the game. There must have been some way to let the time pass easier before someone came screaming through the woods "we did it!" and victory hugging and whatever else it was sports people did these days. Streak?

That meant the safest thing to do was move a leaf with his powers. He hardened his gaze on a single leaf and outstretched his hand. At first it levitated a few feet from the ground, then dropped suddenly but Keith propelled it in the air again with a start. Slowly he brought the leaf towards him and studied its patterns, rotating it slowly like something that belonged in a gallery. Keith hummed in his throat before a sudden breeze swept the leaf away. At first he thought it was his doing, a finger gesture too quick or so, but the clouds darkened and thunder sounded across the sky.
Keith hugged his knees. "This just got a lot worse." Now he'd be cold and have to deal with thunder and lightning as distractions.

Seung-min watched Emery in awe as the latter managed to tame the animal. Wow, Artemis kids can do some pretty awesome things, he thought to himself. Seung-min was always fascinated by animals since as long as he could remember, so Artemis had always intrigued him more than a god like Hermes, for instance (no offense, Dad). Of course, Seung-min was content with his own powers; he couldn't imagine life without his speed.

Emery straightened up, flashing a smile in Seung-min's direction. "Always better to make a new friend, don't you think? Anyway - let's keep moving." Seung-min nodded in agreement at both of Emery's statements, following his fellow demigod through the undergrowth.

"And, Seung-min? That does sound pretty badass."

Seung-min grinned at Emery's statement. A surprisingly small amount of people truly appreciated those Chinese assassin movies, or Japanese ninja movies. "I know, right? Granted, I grew up in South Korea, and that kind of media is super popular there, but I think this could actually work, given our powers. Anyway, let's move onwards!"

The two continued to trek forwards, a comfortable silence between them. However, Seung-min quickly got bored; his natural curiosity wanted him to know more about Emery, even though having a get-to-know-you conversation in the middle of such a game wasn't particularly ideal.

"So . . ." Seung-min began to speak nonetheless. "I know you're a pretty chill person, but other than that, I don't know too much about you. Like, where are you from? I'm from Daegu, which is a pretty big city over in Korea. I can tell you're American, but beyond that, I'm really bad at figuring out accents. I'd like to think that my English is pretty good, but I'm not a native speaker, you know?"

They advanced through the forest together, Emery taking delight in feeling the occasional dead leaf crunch under her running shoes. Despite her shorts, no bugs bothered Emery, for which she was grateful. She didn't really feel like having to deal with mosquitoes in their death throes. She noted Seung-min's uncharacteristic silence with some interest. She didn't think that he was the kind capable of quashing the urge to carry a conversation at any one time.

"So..."

Emery smiled to herself. There it was.

"I know you're a pretty chill person, but other than that, I don't know too much about you. Like, where are you from?" The question caught her off guard. Where she was from... that was a hard question. Thurmont, where she was born? Or Gautier, where she was raised? Or Harahan, Lake City, Aurora, any of the places she'd been shunted to before she'd finally come to camp? Nowhere seemed right. If anything, maybe she could be grateful that the St Johns were many, that at least she'd always had somewhere to stay.

"...I'm from many different places," she finally said, aware that Seung-min was waiting for an answer. "From many different states, raised by many different people... My grandma tried to teach me a Southern accent, but it didn't really stick, not completely." She was suddenly conscious of how different her English was from Seung-min, his smooth and polite, hers drawn out and roiling. Having learned the accent from her grandmother aside, she'd had the habit of trying to incorporate other accents into her speech, in an attempt to fit in, except that it only contributed to the amalgation of identities that she defined herself by.

A breeze swept through the trees, ruffling Emery's hair. She looked up, just in time to see dark clouds rolling in. Lightning flashed once, a clap of thunder, and a fat drop of rain hit her cheek, rolling down her neck, leaving a freezing trail in its wake. Despite herself, she shivered. Probably just bad luck... or one of the Zeus kids duking it out? She turned to Seung-min. "Don't know about you, but I'd rather not let the rain slow us down. Shall we zip up ahead, speed this game up?"

"I don't want to be anything like my brother."

Whatever response Ji-hyun hoped his little pep talk (if being melancholy about one's possibly-dead brother could count as a pep talk) would elicit, this was not it. Sloane's outburst caught him by surprise, and he blinked, stared at her, wondered what he had said to elicit such a show of emotion. Okay, well, emotion was good, even if it was what seemed to be fear and annnoyance - but in the next instant she'd dropped her gaze and backed off. "...Sorry."

She sounded like she had something more to say, so Ji-hyun kept quiet, continuing to watch her. But all she had to offer was "It's complicated... But I'm not like my brother." He nodded in response, tilting his chin at her.

"That's exactly my point, Sloane. I know you're not." His tone made it clear that they would have to talk further on the subject if she didn't want to, and to make it easier on her he turned away, pretending to be scanning their surroundings for approaching Trojans.

Thunder caught his attention, and he turned his face skywards, eyeing the heavy clouds warily. He would not put it past Ajax to utilise his powers to obscure his teammates from view as they stole their flag. Well, two could play at that game - though it meant that he'd have to get his butt in gear.

Ji-hyun took a step towards his partner, hand outstretched. "Well, pains me to say this, but we've got work to do. May I enhance your perception a little? And I don't suppose you know your way around a weapon?"

"I do prefer my head attached to my shoulders." Somehow she suppressed an eye-roll or sigh. "I wouldn’t blame you… or hold some grudge if you left me to die."

She nodded to herself, glad to have that settled. Opposites were now on the same page at least.

"Everyone at this camp is so worried about being a hero. Save a life. Do the heroic thing. No matter the consequences… Sometimes the braver thing to do is to not be a hero. What’s the point if it’d get yourself killed in the process?"

He shrugged while Evelyn pursed her lips thoughtfully. She knew Sylas had a point, no matter how negative it was, there was always some ugly truth to life. Sometimes it wasn't worth being a hero. "The drowning man will always drag someone down with him."

A little hum sounded in her throat neutrally. “You mean to say the strong will sacrifice themselves for the weak? We all die one day, I guess the matter is how we want to be remembered or leave a mark on the world. And sometimes that happens to be nobly or heroically, or the opposite.” Her hand lifted slightly in gesture to her company who was likely an exhibit of the latter.

They took a luxurious paced stroll, though it was more so necessity for Sylas, but it allowed Evelyn to shine her own light on the topic. “Heroics and bravery could be due to the fact that most demigods have lost that sense of self preservation. We've all come from that world where we were the strong and had power among mortals so it was... obligation to protect those in need. If those instincts continue camp will be a harmonious place knowing one has the other's back...at the expense of some trauma,” she confessed. Because it was true, so many people wanted to be brave and throw bodies on the line for each other, or dive into danger without weighing consequences. And as was typical everywhere else in the world, actions spoke louder than words. That's when it all boiled down to friend and foe, bravery and smarts.

Evelyn looked at him. “But you, Sylas, I do wonder how far you'll go.” She certainly knew which way he aimed to tip the scales, but the matter of how far his snake act would go and last was unpredictable. Evelyn imagined he certainly wouldn't be putting his neck on the line for another. Survival of the fittest, just looking out for number one, that's how he operated.

Harley breezed out of home base after a minute, taking the time to assure her limbs weren't charred. Nik's powers were effective. Good.

She zig-zagged the woods, slowly progressing forward to get a sense of how far the oppositions were from taking over base. Then she started to ascend trees to scout from an advantaged point. There she spied quite the scene; one Trojan on a beast, one further along and Elias pinning his back to a tree. It would be a great scene to see Elias verse Trinity, but also cause a commotion even over the thunder and that would risk calling Wesley and his beastie over and Harley wasn't so sure even a son of Ares could take three opponents. And Harley would be no good reinforcement against a beast, that was just reality. Harley clucked her tongue gently and jumped down to gracefully land behind the blonde.

“Hi there, gorgeous.” She swayed side to side, her knees bent slightly and a teasing smirk on her features. Harley struck out her hand to snatch Trinity's band but she dodged in the nick of time. Harley went for another attempt and another that Trinity slimly evaded and responded with batting Harley's arm aside and kicking out. It became a battle of moves and countermoves, neither girl prevailing until Harley took note of Trinity's reluctance to move a certain leg and arm. Harley smiled and darted around Trinity to keep her off balance then plucked her band, appearing a distance away from her. She looked back to Trinity, the blue band resting around her fingers and sent the warrior princess a wink.

A light thud sounded from behind her revealing Harley. Her mouth dropped a little and Trinity checked her surroundings. Harleen was not what she was expecting for some reason. Then her hand struck out lightening quick, Trinity shifted her body out of reach. From there, the thief continued her attempts and Trinity couldn't find the space to get away or get a good hit in so she played some heavy defence and threatened Harley with her own strikes.

The daughter of Hermes disappeared temporarily and Trinity felt a ghost touch, then Harley reappeared holding a blue band. Trinity instinctively felt for her waist then clenched her jaw and closed her eyes when she felt her band wasn't around her anymore. She sighed out, reopening her eyes on the daughter of Hermes.

“That was very lucky. Next time you won't get away from me.”

Eliminated by a swift thief, that hurt. But she was best to take it as a lesson if anything. Trinity headed back to the hall wondering who else might have been out at this stage of the game and if by chance she was the first, she had some serious reflection and training to do. She also hoped Wes was okay storming the Spartan's base. As long as he treated everyone like an enemy and cast some love spells, he'd be good. Trinity groaned. But of course he wouldn't. Shit. Maybe his beast would do some ripping for him.

"Come to the med hut, Miss Wallace." A staff member ambushed her on her path to the hall and went to grab her forearm to escort her to the area of depression and doom.

Trinity retracted. “I'll go to the med hut when I'm dying. I'm serious, you're not getting me there in million years. Use your resources on someone more in need and appreciative.”

The med hut had a place at camp and she fully got its function and value but it wasn't for her. Not because some beast chowed down on her arm.

The staff sighed and turned on their heels and Trinity waited a bit before following them to the hall. Trinity dropped herself in a seat and raised her leg on a table, cupping a hand under her knee and calf.

Wes was hesitant to do anything at that moment, his hand gripping tight to the spear. Trinity was off on her own following some sound, while he held his ground. This didn't look bad or anything. He turned his attention in the direction of where the blonde wondered. For a good while he didn't see her, but then something zipped by. He caught only glimpses of movement between Trinity and someone else. And before he could join to help her, Harleen finally came into focus, holding Trin's blue band.

"Shit," Wes cursed under his breath. He was on his own now and wasn't going to stick around for her to get the jump on him as well. "To the flag," he whispered to the beast as he gave her a quick nudge in her sides with his heels. He quickly slid his spear between his back and shield, freeing up his hand to hold tight to the animal's mane. It was probably stupid... No, undoubtedly stupid. But he figured if he was going to get knocked out, he'd rather it be going for the flag than sitting on his hands... hand.

"That's exactly my point, Sloane. I know you're not." And Ji-Hyun left it at that. It was rare for people not to pry into the meaning behind Sloane's words. Instead he took them for what they were, allowing her to continue or remain silent if she wanted. She appreciated that.

"Thanks," was all she could manage to say. It wasn't much, but it was something. No one has ever really told her she was her own person. Yes, she knew that, but hearing someone else say it... Now that was a first. Her mother was always telling her she could be great, better than Sylas ever hoped to be, but she didn't want that either. Sloane just wanted a chance to be Sloane. Without Sylas or Eris breathing down her neck.

Her attention was quickly drawn to the sky when a loud rumble shudder her being. It hadn't really sunken in yet, the fact that she was surrounded by so many people with a vast array of powers and abilities. But what once was a sunny day quickly faded to a dark, heavy overcast threatening at any moment to open up a deluge on their heads.

"Well, pains me to say this, but we've got work to do. May I enhance your perception a little? And I don't suppose you know your way around a weapon?" Ji-hyun stretched his hand out toward her as he spoke.

Sloane took his hand and slid down from the rock she sat upon, now standing beside her teammate. "Uh, sure... And no, I don't. That's Sylas' area of expertise." Still, she took the shield in her left hand, while her right held the dagger. Maybe she would be lucky. "My powers are more offensive... I don't think it would be wise to invoke violence or chaos on incoming opponents. It'd might turn against our favor quickly." The thought hadn't crossed her mind until that moment. The Spartans didn't leave behind a fighter to help them defend. Ji-hyun could knock them out maybe, but making someone chaotic or violent wouldn't help their already poor predicament. The odds were stacking against them quickly. And as if the skies knew this, the clouds opened up and rain poured down heavily from the heavens, masking any sounds of oncoming opponents.

The sky opened up, quickly drenching Wes and his beast. Although he wasn't a fan, his new friend seemed unfazed, continuing to sprint through the woods with haste. If Ajax was already there, then maybe it'd be a good enough distraction for Wes to get the flag... Or he could always be the distraction while Ajax got it. Or... it could just be rain. That's a thing too.

In no time he was there, just beyond the tree line of where the Spartans' flag would be. To his surprise there were only two people there left to defend it. Ji-hyun and Sloane. They both looked about as capable as himself when it came to combat, so if anything this was going to be a battle of wits. Wes had to fight the urge to laugh. Like he had wits. His gaze skimmed the surrounding area until he saw the red flag hanging high up in a tree. Gods did he wish he could fly. Rain plus tree climbing plus one arm... That didn't sound like a recipe for disaster or anything.

After preparing himself for what was to come, Wes decided to take the opportunity of surprise and use it to his advantage. First he took the spear from his back. Since he lost his right arm, he had been practicing with his left daily. He wasn't a marksman, but as long as he could get them to look one way, then he'd call it a success. He winded back his arm, then through the spear near the pair of defenders, but on the opposite side to get their attention to focus elsewhere than the flag.

Sloane just barely saw the spear flying through the air. She pushed Ji-hyun out of the way just before the weapon lodged itself in the ground at their feet. She quickly brushed back her water soaked hair from her face, as she scanned the surrounding tree line. Then out of on where, a large beast burst through the trees, leaping toward them. Sloane stumbled backwards, falling to the ground. The giant animal stood before the two of them, standing her ground, digging her claws deep into the mud.

As his beast distracted them, Wes ran around the perimeter getting as close to the tree as he could before coming out into view. Part of him was worried about the fate of his new friend. He could only hope he ascends the tree fast enough for Ji-hyun and Sloane to not be able to get a drop on the beast. He'd hate for her to die because of him. But Wes didn't have the time to worry about it. He sprinted out into the clearing, straight for the tree. As quickly as he could manage, he began to climb. The rain didn't help his struggle, but he ignored everything else and focused on the climb.

Sloane extended her hands before her trying to remain calm for the large animal. For a brief moment she caught sight of something. She looked over toward the tree and saw someone halfway up toward the flag. "Try to put it to sleep!" she called back to Ji-hyun as she was already running toward the tree. Luckily, once under the branches it cut back a lot of the rain so that she was able to look up to see where the opponent was. After a moment, she was able to make out Wes clumsily climbing, his feet slipping every few placements. With no time to waste, she quickly began climbing up behind him.

Wes found himself cursing nearly ever step he took. If his foot didn't slip, his grip did. But he was determined and kept climbing. He was nearly to the top when he felt something grab his ankle. He looked down seeing Sloane's small handing holding tight to his foot. He froze for a moment, not knowing what to do. He didn't want to risk kicking her and making the girl fall and get injured. But he didn't have another free hand to break her grasp. Instead he opted for the harder route, Wes hooked his left arm around an upper branch and with all his might he hoisted himself up.

It took all the strength in him to lift himself and the girl beneath him, but finally her grasp slipped do to the rain. Once Wes was free he took the advantage and climbed up the rest of the way as fast as he could. Sloane was just about to reach him again when he reached out and snagged the Spartans' flag. When he had the soggy piece of fabric in his grasp, he froze in slight shock then looked down at Sloane who stopped her pursuit to look up at him. "I have the flag?" he said in more of disbelief than celebration. Then he stood up on the branch and waved the flag. "I HAVE THE FLAG! TROJANS WIN!!"

After a well deserved minute of waving the flag, he looked down at the branches below him. "Shit. Now how am I getting down?"

“You mean to say the strong will sacrifice themselves for the weak? We all die one day, I guess the matter is how we want to be remembered or leave a mark on the world. And sometimes that happens to be nobly or heroically, or the opposite.” Evelyn gestured toward him obviously meaning him to be the representation of the opposite. She could think whatever she wanted, good or bad. He could tell from the moment he met her that she could see through to the truth in each person. Sylas didn't care. If people were smart enough to see to his true nature then by all means. If not, then whatever he did to them they deserved.

“Heroics and bravery could be due to the fact that most demigods have lost that sense of self preservation. We've all come from that world where we were the strong and had power among mortals so it was... obligation to protect those in need. If those instincts continue camp will be a harmonious place knowing one has the other's back...at the expense of some trauma."

Sylas' brows quirked at the notion. "Not all of us. But I suppose I can see your point." He wouldn't deny that he agreed with her conclusion as to why most of the people at camp acted the way they did. He noticed that almost instantly when he came to camp. There was such a lack of self preservation that it made for an interesting course of action when trying to weave his vines. A healthy challenge in his opinion. Everyone was so eager to put their lives on the line for others, that only a master puppeteer could pull the right strings to work in their favor.

“But you, Sylas, I do wonder how far you'll go.” He chuckled slightly as he continued walking in step with her. Step by step his limp was slowly wearing off. He had hardly noticed when the rain started. It never really bothered him anyway. But it'd definitely make for a bigger challenge in this particular exercise when you can't hear people approaching or get proper footing.

Sylas parted his lips to reply but as he did so an airhorn signaling the end of the game sounded throughout the playing arena. He then stopped and looked over at the red head. "I guess you'll just have to wait to find out." He changed his path to aim toward the main hall. As the distance between himself and Evelyn grew, he nodded his head back toward her. "You're a formidable teammate. I wouldn't mind working with you again sometime." He smirked and then continued onward.

Sylas could only imagine how much Evelyn would hate the idea of working with him again, but the thought of the knot growing in her stomach at his poor excuse of a compliment excited him. He loved ruffling feathers but better yet when it caused a wave of confusion between being flattered, confused or insulted. If only he had more time to cause more mischief during capture the flag. But the summer was young and his time at the camp had just begun.

"You're the one that told me to make friends, I can't help the quality of them. My options are pretty limited."

Andy gave a weak chuckle at his comment. "Maybe you just have bad taste in friends," she added quietly, meaning herself as much as Sylas. No doubt she's felt a growing weight on her shoulders and part of that lied heavily with her lack in being a good friend. From her side, she didn't seem to be making Mason's life any easier... Probably just more difficult. Maybe it would be better for him if she backed off and didn't constantly put herself in the middle of a feud that was never going to end. But she couldn't bring herself to do that.

"Your face will heal," Mason continued quietly. "And you'll be Mrs. Athens again in no time."

She stiffened slightly at his last comment. Andy didn't look up at him, but her voice was firm yet gentle. "Don't do that, Mason... I'm not Mrs. Athens. I'm Andy... Just Andy," her voice trailed off.

As she sat there with Mason, she gently hooked her arm in his, sighing softly. Andy was exhausted... From everything. In that brief silence she felt a heavy gaze on her. She was tempted not to look up, to ignore the feeling of someone's stare drilling through her, but eventually she looked up. She met Ajax's gaze for only a moment, but quickly looked back down at her hands.

She raised her hand to gently poke at her swollen nose as Mason cleared his throat to speak. "So, thank you, for doing what you did in the woods. I know it wasn't for me and maybe I shouldn't even be thanking you but...I'm glad you were there. Hardly anyone speaks against her and him so...good of you to speak your mind, I guess."

Andy focused on his words, almost completely missing his comment about the party the night before and the girl he claimed was hot. To each his own, she supposed. A woman like that looked like a walking heart break but it wasn't her place. She didn't make the best choices in companions at the current moment either. Maybe that was their lot in life.

"It was for you... And me," Andy spoke up in late response to his thanks. She was going to leave it at that, but she was too tired to hold back anything, especially from Mason. "I hate the way she looks at you. Like you're some kind of monster. She judges you and doesn't even know you." Andy kept her voice low so only he could hear, but there was a sharp bite to it. "She's the monster. I saw it... the rage in her eyes. No one cares that I was there, what I saw or what I did. They all forgive her like it never happened. While I had to sit there with this... Burden. That I wasn't fast enough to save Jennova. That I couldn't call you and tell you the moment it happened. I carried her body... I buried her."

She closed her eyes, taking a deep breath. "Those images haunt my dreams. Jennova, the Underworld... Daniel," her voice cracked quietly at the mention of her brother's name. "Everyone expects me to be strong all the time. To forgive and forget... But I can't." For so long Andy has bottled everything up. But since camp has started again she's been unraveling. She never was the type to say her feelings, instead being strong for everyone else, not herself. She felt like she was falling apart piece by piece and she couldn't hold it in anymore.

The silence was broken when Mason spoke up. "You can go talk to him if you want. I mean... I would like you to at least wait for him to apologize but I wont mind."

Andy smiled weakly at the end of his comment. "I don't want to talk to him..." At this point, she couldn't care less if Ajax apologized or not. It sounded so foreign coming out of his mouth, especially directed toward her. For two words that were so simple, it carried a lot of weight. They're supposed to be equals in a relationship, but she always felt two steps behind. That she was constantly having to forgive what he has done. Then the one time Andy does something he doesn't agree with, he scolds her like a child. She didn't feel like his equal and if anything that supported the thought.

Image He got a small chide for calling her Mrs. Athens but liked or not, it was part of the truth when you stood next to Golden Boy, and Andy would always return to his side. The two were head over heels. But she didn't need his bitterness or snide remarks...it had been a tough day already for her and she was here, with him.

"It was for you... And me." Mason glanced at her. He didn't much enjoy bringing her into the conflict or being a factor of her involvement. But there you had it. He held her arm around his gently. "I hate the way she looks at you. Like you're some kind of monster. She judges you and doesn't even know you. She's the monster. I saw it... the rage in her eyes. No one cares that I was there, what I saw or what I did. They all forgive her like it never happened. While I had to sit there with this... Burden. That I wasn't fast enough to save Jennova. That I couldn't call you and tell you the moment it happened. I carried her body... I buried her."

Mason shifted, letting Andy go and untangling his arm from hers and straightening up. Even after a year it still felt fresh. It still felt surreal to lose Jennova and not be there for her. For his best friend to have to handle her head and headless corpse. Mason wished he didn't go on that stupid hunt for the older demigod. He almost felt he owed Andy an apology for having to experience and deal with the burial of Jennova, taking on his responsibility.

"Those images haunt my dreams. Jennova, the Underworld... Daniel." He almost forgot how similar of boats they were in. And how he abandoned her after the death of her brother. Mason had to wonder how she was even still at camp after the hell the place had put her through and her boyfriend incident.

"I don't want to talk to him..." Andy concluded.

Mason sighed out softly, not that she could be blamed. It was just that now he felt guilt for the silence that loomed overhead. Mason had done well skirting around the weight of Jennova's and Daniel's death, always addressing it with a certain distance. And he never had the heart to tell Andy he didn't see Daniel in the Underworld. He didn't like bringing his name up in front of her. Mason had Daniel's back one second, then the next he was stabbed through it.

"How'd you survive without me?" He meant it a lot more genuinely than joking.

ImageA siren sounded and Keith instantly jumped up to check his illusions were in place, and the numerous decoys were. That meant they won! Right!? There was no one around to confirm his suspicions so he slowly crept away from his post, sure it indicated an end to the game yet ready to dart back if he had misunderstood the universal sound of conclusion.

Thankfully it was the end of the game and all that Keith felt was relief. Not joy or pride that the Trojans won, only relief and luck that he didn't have to encounter some super competitive hot-head and now he could go about his day without anymore hassle.
Rather than head to the hall he headed to his cabin. A strategic choice since there was no use going out of his way to not fit in, however, his stomach had slightly different ideas. Missing breakfast and jumping straight into the horrible flag game really had his gut churning and his cabin was missing food due to his late arrival.

His indecisiveness and quick pace trying to avoid the downpour had him bump into someone and he immediately sighed. "I hate myself,"
he mumbled.
Before he could tend to the apology, somebody yanked the back of his collar then pushed it. His body became a yo-yo of sorts as the motions continued with some heckling, "Don't walk into ladies. You're puny, so puny. You think you'd have a brain at least," and the big brute's knuckles connecting with the back of Keith's neck and head until they finally pushed him in the mud.
"Really, Biff?"
Keith made the mistake of commenting before he was up.

END OF THE TITANS REIGN

The skies rumbled as Zeus remained seated in his golden throne, his right hand stroking his chin in thought. He could sense his daughter's anger, pain, and his son's troubles of being the man that the others expected him to be. If only his children knew what he had sacrificed for them. He didn't want to leave their mother, but to keep her safe, he had no choice.

Before the Olympian Gods had built Camp Athens and before the Titans creation, the very first God, Uranus, had created the entire universe which had been crafted from his own flesh and blood. He created others like him and had many children. Uranus wanted others to praise their powers and worship them as Gods. He wanted weaker beings to look up to them as protectors and providers of their very lives.

After the mortals were created and given a home, Uranus became fascinated by how they evolved over time. They were intelligent, happy, and loving to each other. Proud of his creations, his son Cronus grew jealous and wanted everything for himself. So, as soon as the time was right, he waited until the other Titans were fast asleep before he threw Uranus off the highest peak of the cosmos, sending him into the abyss. Cronus quickly became the new King and threatened to send all Titans to join his father if they did not bow before him. Every one of them did out of fear, for Cronus was the first Titan that Uranus had regrettably created.

The world had grown dark, splitting mortals between good and evil. Cronus enjoyed the countless of murders that the mortals inflicted upon their own kind. It was entertainment at its finest for him. He took many wives, but there was only ever one which he truly cared for and loved. She was the mother of Zeus. Every night she would sing to her boy, telling him stories of his ancestors and how they became to be. Sadly, their happiness wasn't able to last.

Her angered husband was looking for all of his children since the fates had warned him of a prophecy, a prophecy of which his children would become the new Gods, and destroy him. Cronus began to eat every one of his children, but Zeus' mother was the Goddess who had been the one to trick her husband into swallowing large rocks after hiding her son on Earth among the mortals.

More years went by, and it almost seemed as though the Titans and Gods had died out since hardly anyone worshipped them anymore. They believed their Gods did not care for them, so they gave up hope. Cronus became angry once more, and as he planned to wage war on the ungrateful mortals, Zeus had learned about who he was and what his father had done. His revenge was to save his brothers, and together they would destroy Cronus and all who still followed him.

During his time with the mortals, Zeus had met Susanna, a beautiful woman which had stolen his heart the second he lay his eyes upon her. They had their first child, Ajax, but Zeus could not stay. Cronus would soon find his son and if he knew about their half-mortal child, he would kill the baby and the mortal who had birthed it. Susanna never knew she had fallen in love with a God, and Zeus made sure he kept it that way before leaving her to keep her safe.

He went back to his homeland, to Greece, and saved his brothers and other Gods who were willing to follow Zeus to battle against Cronus. He had found out about the half-bred child that Zeus had been raising, and stormed through the golden gates with other titans behind him. The heavens shook as a war began between both sides until it came to an end.

Zeus and the Olympians had won. They had trapped Cronus and the Titans in the fiery depths of Tartarus.

AJAX VALIS
SON OF ZEUS
Hex: Green
He hadn't noticed that Andy had seen him, not that it mattered to her at this point anyway since she was hanging out with her second boyfriend. "My go-to guess would be Trinity but she was on our side, so who got the jump on you?" the mention of the feisty blonde hadn't broken him from the daze he was in. Even though he was there in person with his best friend, his mind seemed miles away from this world almost. As Duke came closer, Duke’s smile slowly faded. No doubt he had realized that Ajax wasn't completely himself. Without powers, Ajax felt like he was nothing but an empty shell.

He stood by Ajax, no doubt waiting for words, a grunt, or anything else to indicate where his head was, but the silence spoke for itself. Ajax felt Duke's hand on his shoulder before he left Ajax to himself. He felt like a bad friend, a bad boyfriend, and a bad brother. He turned around, parted his lips to call Duke back, but the words never left his mouth. Duke had gone inside of the hall to avoid the storm which had covered the camp. What he wanted to tell Duke would now have to wait. He headed to his cabin and found Alex there, leaning over the table before she slowly straightened up to look at him. She was still covered in blood and dirt.

"Are you okay?" his voice deep, yet gentle as he approached her.

ALEXANDRIA VALIS
DAUGHTER OF ZEUS
Hex: #d63b71


Alex wasn't sure how to answer that question, but it was obvious she wasn't her usual happy self. In fact, she was tired of him treating her like a child, like she needed protection all the time. This entire camp didn't need her, and selected view that she did care about seemed to keep their distance from her lately. Maybe Mason and Andy had been filling their heads with nonsense. It was clear those two wanted her death as vengeance for Jennova, but what about the vengeance for her mother's death? Alex steadily rose to her feet, her fingertips remain touching the wooden table with her eyes on her brother. "I'm leaving." She decided. Her gaze fell to the table for a moment as the look of horror hit her brother's face.

"You can't leave. You know how--"


"dangerous it is?" she finished for him. "I can handle myself. I need to get away. I'll be back once I have found myself again." she began to pack her rucksack.

"Al, listen to me." but she ignores him. "Al, you just...fine." he had to let her do this. He didn't want her to resent or hate him, hell, he didn't want her to leave but if this is what she needed then he would just have to step aside and prepare for the worst. As she headed out with her rucksack, Ajax watched from the doorway, his brows furrowing as he folded his arms, fighting back the urge to chases after her.

"Not all of us. But I suppose I can see your point," he replied.

Of course not everybody would be on board for the ideal, harmonious and trusting environment Evelyn spoke of. Aside from Sylas having the opposite goal; greed, anger and envy existed outside of his menace. But she didn't have to explain the vague usage of harmony on camp to him. As he said, he saw the point anyway.

Sylas lips parted to respond to her calling him out. As things dared to get interesting and personal, they were interrupted by the airhorn concluding the game. "I guess you'll just have to wait to find out." He headed for the main hall while Evelyn froze in place. In his instance he was saved by the horn, but she couldn't blame him for that as luck was her forte.

"You're a formidable teammate. I wouldn't mind working with you again sometime," he said for final effect.

Her brows furrowed gently. Why did it feel like salt in a wound? A compliment with an unsaid juxtaposing position. After a moment of pondering, Evelyn sighed at herself and concluded not to waste anymore time on it. The solution was simple, don't team up with him or help him again.

She took her time returning to the hall, looking down at her feet and pondering who had won the game to keep her mind busy until someone bumped into her. “Watch it,” Evelyn said.

A fellow demigod flocked to her aid unnecessarily. Before she could even thank them for the thought, things escalated, they man handled the other that she recognised was on her team. She didn't react instantly. Evelyn regretted to even have second thoughts of intervening, as if she'd done her teamwork for the whole year. When her former teammate was tossed to the ground, she stepped forward.

"Really, Biff?" The boy with glasses teased earning him another blow.

“That's enough,” she said sharply. “Go. Now.” She kept her nerve until the Biff character was out of range. A hint of smile threatened to cross her lips as the accuracy of description hit her. But she quickly fixed her gaze to the male on the ground. “Why would you allow yourself to become McFly?” Evelyn stood by him and intended to walk with him until he was under the public eye again and could avoid trouble.

“I didn't catch your name. I'm Evelyn.”

Anxiety grew on her at the concept of Wes going after the flag alone. Maybe some Trojans were lurking nearby and helping him. The airhorn sounded and she sighed out in relief. At least the damned game was over which meant no more harm could come to him. Now all there was to do was to wait a little while longer to see if he returned to the hall in one piece.

When she saw Duke, she felt the urge to spring out her seat and ask how many Trojans were out, how he go out and how the progress with Wes's new arm was going. Rumour had it both siblings treated his missing limb as a project, although she couldn't see the youngest member of camp to inquire. Then her eyes found Mason and Andy. The pair looked like they were winding down but deep in thought. They often looked burdened by something heavy - probably the loss of their siblings that they shared and who knew what else. Trinity chewed on her bottom lip. On one hand she wanted to ask about Wes's arm, on the other she owed it to Andy to tell her that most of the Trojans saw Daniel. But she didn't want to interrupt Mason and Andy's conversation. And she wanted to be right. What if her eyes deceived her and he just looked a little like the son of Hecate? Then Andy had every right to be pissed at her. She clenched her teeth a little. Trinity left her seat. She was going in, deciding the consequences of her being wrong and telling Andy was better than Andy finding some doppelganger of Daniel for herself.

“Hi guys,” she smiled a little, standing before Mason and Andy. “Sorry for interrupting but um...” she glanced between the two. Andy trusted Mason so it probably wouldn't be necessary to pull her aside. And this way, Mason could offer some back up whether Daniel was down under, emotional support and all sorts.

She bit her inner cheek, averting her gaze to her own fingers on the table. It was a lot harder suddenly to drop the bomb on her friend's head and it was downright cruel if she was wrong. But she knew what she saw. Wes and Ajax saw him too. “I think your brother's here,” she said softly and lifted her eyes to gauge Andy's reaction. “I- I don't know if it's a spell or ghost form...” Trinity was at a loss because it wasn't really Daniel and she didn't want Andy's hopes to skyrocket. Trinity saw the blade go through him. The blood on the grass, the blood on Andy.

She flickered her gaze to Mason worriedly, asking him to help Andy. To help make sense of this circumstance.

When Andy mentioned Jennova, Mason went ridged. He pulled himself from her, leaving her sitting there stiff... Just staring at her hands as they rested in her lap. She hated how he was blew hot and cold, it gave her whiplash. With him pulled from her, she scooted herself apart from him slightly with a sigh. "...I lost a sibling too, Mason," she said, barely louder than a whisper.

Then there was silence. Not that she was surprised. Maybe that's why Andy so rarely opened up anymore. People just looked at her like she was mad. Mason and herself had both been through a lot and more than anything, she just needed someone she could... be herself around, where she didn't have to pretend like she was ok all the time. She hoped that Mason would understand compared to the others.

"How'd you survive without me?"

Andy turned her head slightly toward Mason. Her expression was peaceful, like a sad sort of acceptance. "I didn't." She had long accepted that she wasn't the same girl from last year. Everything had changed... including herself. She was a ghost of her former self and surprisingly no one noticed.

“Hi guys,” Trinity said from across the table. Andy didn't even notice her approach, but a genuine smile came to her lips when she saw her. It's been so busy at camp as of late that she hardly had time to spend with Trin. Andy was thankful for her arrival. She wouldn't admit it, but she was scared what way that conversation could have turned. Not that Mason was much of a Let's talk about your feelings type of guy. “Sorry for interrupting but um...”

"You're always welcome," Andy said while motioning for Trinity to take a seat.

Something seemed to be bothering Trinity and the longer she was quiet, the more Andy grew uneasy. “I think your brother's here.” The words rang through Andy's mind like an alarm as she sat there unmoving. Before she could fathom to put together words Trinity continued. “I- I don't know if it's a spell or ghost form...”

Andy finally inhaled a sharp breath like she was gasping for air after nearly drowning. Her hands started to tremble as they rested on the table while her gaze was blank. "I—I—I don't understand... Where is he!? Why didn't he come see me!?" She quickly went from a daze to full on panic. Her thoughts flooded from her lips the second they hit her mind. Was he alive? Could he be? Why didn't Hecate tell her? Why didn't he come see her?

Everything began to spin as Andy grew lightheaded from the overwhelming news. It was like everything she had been dealing with for the past year had finally boiled over. Her right hand reached out for Mason as her vision went blurry. Before she could find him her eyes rolled back in her head as she feinted, her body tipping backwards off the bench.

Sloane had tried to hold onto Wes the best she could but with the rain her grasp was slipping. She had underestimated his own strength until he lifted her along with him until her hold broke. She floundered as she fell a couple feet. But luckily her feet found a limb beneath her while her hands grasped at the slippery tree trunk. By the time she had her bearings and even contemplated going up after him again. He had the flag.

Honestly, she was just happy for this whole thing to be over. Sloane tried her best and thankfully her brother wasn't there to see her fail. Although they were on opposite teams, he wouldn't like seeing her disgrace the family name with her inability to stop Wes.

She caught her breath where she stood in the tree before looking back up to the victor. Sloane brushed wet locks of hair from her face as she extended a hand up toward Wes. "Here, let me help you."

It took sometime but eventually the two of them awkwardly made their way back down the tree. "Thanks, Wes said once his feet were firmly on the ground. At the bottom of the tree Ji-hyun waited, while Wes' hound was recalled back into the woods at the final horn of the game.

"Good game you guys. I didn't hurt you, did I?" Wes asked Sloane as he ran a hand back through his wet hair.

"I'm good," Sloane responded with the best smile she could manage and a thumbs up. She didn't care that she lost. She just wanted to go back to her cabin and get into dry clothes more than anything. Physical activities were definitely not her forte.

We smiled toward the both of them, while offering them his fist in a friendly bump. "I'll see you all back at the main hall."

With the flag in hand, Wes took off in a jog through the rain back toward the main hall. His mind was still buzzing with the fact that he... out of everyone, had captured the flag. Even with the proof he doubted anyone would believe him.

He finally reached the main hall after many tumbles in the muck and mud on his way there. Wes trudged his way in through the door and shook his head, trying to get some of the water off. His eyes glanced around at the faces that sat around waiting for the results, but his smile faded slightly when there was no sign of Alex. He sighed slightly, hoping that he could figure out where she was but instead weaved his way through the tables toward a far one which held Mason, Andy and Trinity.

As he approached the table, Wes held the flag getting ready to toss it on the table like a football and do his touchdown dance. But he froze behind Trinity when he saw Andy's face and heard her babbling questions. "You told her?" he asked Trinity. It wasn't in an accusatory manor. She needed to be told and honestly hearing it from Trinity was better than her stumbling upon it on her own. No matter what the circumstances were that Andy found out, his heart ached for her.

He went to reach out his hand toward her, hoping to ease her emotions so that she could think clearly. But his hand was barely raised when she fell backward off her seat. "Andy!?"

Image He took Andy's hand and gave it a comforting squeeze. She survived, sure but they both knew surviving and living were different. In the silence that passed, Mason was trying to muster the courage to apologise for everything that she'd been through and just as the words were about to depart, Trinity stood at the table. Had it been anyone else they'd likely receive a cold glare but he didn't mind the daughter of Ares.

“Hi guys. Sorry for interrupting but um...” He furrowed his brows as she looked between them and took a more serious soft tone. Right now they were using each other as stabilisers and Mason didn't feel like leaving Andy yet and he sensed more bad news. “I think your brother's here.”
Mason straightened again while his lips fell apart. But he was speechless.
“I- I don't know if it's a spell or ghost form...” Trinity tried to explain.
Mason only shook his head softly then glanced to Andy. He was almost afraid to see her eyes, to meet the grief, despair or anger behind them.
"I—I—I don't understand... Where is he!? Why didn't he come see me!?"
"Andy…I wanted to tell you, I -."
But the overload of emotions caught up to her and caused her to tip off balance. Mason's arms shot out catching her just in time. He blew out his lips in relief, then looked up to Trinity and Wesley. He wasn't sure what to do with her or the whole situation for a moment, however, he settled on getting her out of the gawking eyes of the hall. Mason wrapped one arm under her knees and the other around her back and begun to carry her out.
"Come on guys, she's gonna need the biggest support system she can get," he told Wesley and Trinity without looking back at them.

Any other day this would be Ajax's job and maybe that's why it felt a little odd for Mason to carry someone else's girl in his arms, but Andy was one of his most treasured friends and he couldn't leave her. Besides Ajax had his own drama. Mason carried Andy carefully to her cabin. They didn't need the med hut when the diagnosis was transparent and he wanted her to feel as comfortable as possible. He laid her down on her bed carefully. "Take it easy, Andy," he told her quietly. He had a feeling that wouldn't be the case once she got out of her light-headed spell.

He wandered off to fetch her a glass of water then regrouped with the other two. "So you've really seen him then?" Mason asked lowly. It was a big discovery and all the more puzzling at the same time. "Did he say much?"

It made a little more sense why he didn't see Daniel in the Underworld. Mason's pursed his lips. "I got some things to iron out with Andy if you two don't mind," he said, directing the news towards the blonde.

Image “That's enough. Go. Now,” the girl ordered though the request personally felt a little late for Keith. Still, somewhere in him was a slither of gratitude. Had she not decided to intervene things could have turned out worse. “Why would you allow yourself to become McFly?”
That was her first question? Keith glanced up to her for a moment before deciding it seemed genuine enough and slowly moved to sit-up position. Least she got the reference.
"I don’t take pleasure in getting my butt kicked," he clarified. "But I am used to it so I try to make it as much fun as I can for both of us." Keith held his rib and winced then climbed to his feet.
“I didn't catch your name. I'm Evelyn.”
"I'm Keith. Thanks for your concern." Keith wanted to end the exchange there, in case more of her eager friends rushed to get a punch or kick in. Though, suddenly, it felt too rude to walk off so he kept in stride with her. If she was all bad and unapproachable, he supposed she wouldn't have bothered to introduce herself or hang around to see he was in one piece.
"Did you um..manage okay in the game? I mean, I assume we won but it's also plausible that they forgot about me." He tried to smile though the sting of being invisible or some meat heads chew toy always hurt. At least a little.

In search of more conversation starters, he next said, "So Evelyn, do you have a boyfriend?" Only to figure out a moment later how it must have sounded. "I mean I'm not interested or anything but- no - you're a very beautifu- pretty girl woman. You're super attractive, I just don't want to date you. I'd be happy to date a woman of your stance, I'm not trying to start anything." He pinched the bridge of his nose and cringed wishing some tidal wave would come and spontaneously wash him away.
On all accounts the girl was gorgeous. And even when she was a little rough around the edges he detected something more caring and involved at her core. Then again, his hunch could be way off base, shrouded by delusion. Keith cleared his throat."Please feel no need to answer that question. It's completely inappropriate."

ALEXANDRIA VALIS
DAUGHTER OF ZEUS
Hex: #d63b71
Alex couldn't leave without saying goodbye to her friend and Duke, so she headed back to the hall hoping that they would still be there. She could hear the others chatting and laughing inside which made her feel more distant from herself. She used to laugh and smile just the same, but now every vibrant colour of her soul seemed to have been drained from her body entirely. She felt like something was eating away at her, something that she couldn't remember but needed to remember.

She headed inside, her right hand clutching her bags handle that hung over her right shoulder. Standing by the door, she placed her rucksack down onto a table next to her. The game had obviously ended but not everyone was back yet.

Alex took a seat, sitting on the edge of it as she took a deep breath and then turned her head toward the back of the hall. Duke sat on his own with a fruit in hand.

With her eyes still on him, she reached for her rucksack, curling her fingers tightly into the deep green material at the top of it before she stood up and began to walk over to him. There was no point in lying about anything since he and the others would find out anyway. Ajax always turned to Duke. "Duke..." her voice soft. "I...I'm leaving camp for a little while. I wanted to say goodbye to you and Wes first. You need an explanation, and the only one that I can give right now is that I need to clear my mind, and to find who I am again... then I'll come back." she promised. She couldn't leave this place for good. There were people she cared about even if they didn't care about her.

She wasn't sure how he'd react to what she had just told him, but her mind was made up. She would stay in a motel for tonight, then head to her hometown and revisit some old friends and whatever else she could find to do while there. Just nothing reckless.

AJAX VALIS
SON OF ZEUS
Hex: Green
Ajax headed back inside and poured himself a fresh mug of coffee from the machine. He stood there in his own world as his eyes rested on the table where is sister sat. "No." he said, shaking his head before he left the house. There was no way he was going allow her to just head out there without anyone being with her. He understood she wanted to be alone, but what if Hades finds her? maybe Andy could put some spell on her, keep his sister hidden from those who wanted to harm her, but at this point, why would she want to help him? yes, they were together still, but the way he spoke to her to defend his little sister had caused a wedge between them, causing his girlfriend to turn to her best friend for comfort and support. Daniel was the only other option.

Hopefully, Alex hadn't left yet. Knowing her she would want to say goodbye to Duke and Wes first which would maybe bind him some time. Ajax quickly ran around the camp in search for Daniel, right up until he found him with Evelyn. He hated interrupting, but this was important to him. "Daniel," he said, not knowing that Keith wouldn't know that name. "I'm sorry for interrupting anything if I did, but this is urgent." he promised. "Is there anything any of you can do, like some kind of spell to protect and hide Alex while she's outside of camp? she's leaving for a little while, and I won't rest unless I know she's safe. Please, I'm begging you." begging wasn't something Ajax did often, but he was doing it now. "I will do anything. I will wash your dishes or something." he half laughed.

Ji-hyun could induce sleep, and he thought he could take it away just as easily. Pressing two fingertips to Sloane's shoulder - he expected she didn't appreciate physical contact much - he concentrated for a moment, finding that energy and drawing it out of her. Without it, she would find herself more alert and responsive to her surroundings, which would hopefully give them an advantage against any advancing Trojans.

Just in time, too, because the moment he drew away it began pouring, instantly reducing visibility. Ji-hyun stepped away from Sloane, palms practically crackling with energy. He couldn't see their opponent, but it didn't take a genius to figure out that they were close. Anticipation practically radiated through the trees at him, and he was ready to meet it.

What he wasn't expecting was the spear. In fact, he didn't really see it until it was almost on top of him, right before Sloane pushed him out of its trajectory. The weapon struck the ground, quivering slightly as if enraged at its failure.

The beast came next, charging out of the woods towards the two defenders. Scrambling backwards, Sloane lost her footing, falling backwards. Ji-hyun himself took a few steps back, hands held out in front of him. Suddenly going head to head with a beast this size, armed only with sleep magic, didn't seem like such a good idea after all. Ares would probably be laughing his ass off right about now.

"Try to put it to sleep!" Ji-hyun turned, sighting only Sloane heading back towards the tree. "What?!" he yelled back, unaware of Wes already halfway up the tree.

But Sloane had already gone. Turning back to the beast, which was now growling at him, he edged back a fraction. "Uh. Easy there." His voice seemed to set it off, though, and it growled again, louder this time, moving towards him. He ducked the first swipe of its paw, feinting ineffectively to the left before lunging forward, hands outstretched. It swiped once more at him, and this time one claw tore through the flesh of his left palm. Blood spattered the forest floor, seeping into the mud, but his other hand made contact with its face, and in the next instant it had dropped, barely conscious.

Holding his injured hand to his chest, Ji-hyun turned in Sloane's direction, just in time to see Wes's fingers close around the flag. "I have the flag? I HAVE THE FLAG! TROJANS WIN!!"

"You sure do," Ji-hyun groaned bitterly. He watched Sloane help Wes down from the tree, and trailed along behind the both of them back to the main hall. Once back at the hall, he turned to them, accepting Wes's fist bump with his uninjured hand, and offering Sloane one last you did well nod.

"Good win. I'll just be off to get some help with this, don't want to get sepsis." Leaving them with a wry chuckle, Ji-hyun left to seek first aid.

“I—I—I don't understand... Where is he!? Why didn't he come see me!?”

Trinity opened her mouth like she could provide the answers but all that emerged was a croak.

“You told her?”

Trinity felt a brief wash of relief come over her, knowing Wes was in one piece behind her. On the other hand, she had a very distressed friend ahead of her. And soon enough that worked up friend ended up falling towards the floor. Trinity jerked forward but Mason caught her. She put her hand on her forehead and exhaled, forcing her muscles to relax at the same time. “Yeah,” she answered Wes finally. A little angel at the start of the capture the flag game told me to. But why didn't it feel like the right thing to do? The information caused Andy to border hysteria and faint!

"Come on guys, she's gonna need the biggest support system she can get."


Trinity shifted to make room for Mason and Andy. As she turned she noticed the flag. In any other instance she probably would have pounced on Wes in an over excited triumph and asked for the details but now hardly seemed the appropriate time. She offered him a tight smile and tailed uselessly behind Mason to Andy's cabin. Rather than stroll on in, Trinity lurked by the doorway. She didn't want to hover over Andy, especially when her friend was in the most qualified hands; Mason understood the lost sibling concept and resurrection. Trinity leaned against Andy's cabin and sighed. She imagined what it'd be like losing Sam and coming to terms with it within a year only for someone to come along and claim he's alive.

"So you've really seen him then?" Mason came back asking. "Did he say much?"

Trinity reluctantly shook her head. “Not to me,” she regretfully reported honestly.

"I got some things to iron out with Andy if you two don't mind."


At this Trinity straightened. She had half a mind to oppose and insist to stay but Trinity tried to think of a reason or what her company could offer and reached nothing. Instead, she nodded to Mason and wandered a few feet away from the daughter of Hecate's cabin. Trinity pouted and trudged a few steps to Wes and put her head to his chest in defeat. Even though his shirt was damp from the rain, Trinity couldn't bring herself to care and for a moment she just let herself sulk there. “I should have waited for you. You could have broke it to her better and helped her,” she muttered.

She sighed out then drew back to glance at the unlikely victor of capture the flag. Her eyes scanned his face, almost getting distracted by his eyes, before they trailed to his body. “You don't look too beaten up so that's good. How'd you all fare?”

"I'm Keith. Thanks for your concern." At least she obtained a name to the face and distortion he gave her.

Evelyn detected a moment of stiff silence from there but it was something she was compatible with. It didn't phase her in the least. However, Keith felt differently. "Did you um..manage okay in the game? I mean, I assume we won but it's also plausible that they forgot about me."

“I did.” To throw the guy a bone however for conversational efforts, she added,“my role was a little more supportive and focused on helping and hindering through indirect methods. I'm fairly sure we won.” Evelyn shrugged. “I'm not clairvoyant or psychic but it's a hunch. Besides, I think people would notice if you failed as a defender.”

"So Evelyn, do you have a boyfriend?" She faltered in step at the abrupt topic change and looked at him wide eyed. "I mean I'm not interested or anything but- no - you're a very beautifu- pretty girl woman."
Despite herself, she felt her cheeks grow warm even as his yammering continued. "You're super attractive, I just don't want to date you. I'd be happy to date a woman of your stance, I'm not trying to start anything. Please feel no need to answer that question. It's completely inappropriate."

Evelyn snapped out of her flattered state. “Don’t hurt yourself, it's fine,” she concluded for him.

Further saviour came in the shape of Zeus's son, calling out to Daniel while meeting with Keith. Evelyn gave Keith an unimpressed side-glance. Before she could walk away, Ajax continued. "I'm sorry for interrupting anything if I did, but this is urgent. Is there anything any of you can do, like some kind of spell to protect and hide Alex while she's outside of camp? she's leaving for a little while, and I won't rest unless I know she's safe. Please, I'm begging you."

Evelyn paused. A leader begging. The blood of Zeus no less. And he did say any of you, unless Ajax was just referring to Keith and his split ego. “I might be able to bless a possession of hers, as long as it's always on her being.” Then daringly and inquisitively, she asked, “What is it she needs protection from?” Because what did the daughter of Zeus need protection from? Evelyn imagined only a few things could triumph over their power. “If you want this done right, it's better to know what we're hiding her from,” she said. While it did peak her interest, she wasn't asking for gossip's sake and she wanted that to come across clear to Ajax.

Andy expected the collision with the ground to either jar her awake, her just further concrete her feint state of mind. But arms were quickly out to catch her. Arms enveloped her frame and lifted her into the air. Her head felt as heavy as lead, resting against Mason’s shoulder as he carried her out of the hall. "Come on guys, she's gonna need the biggest support system she can get,” he said toward others, which she could only assume was Wes and Trinity.

She wanted to protest that she was fine. That she just needed air, to clear her mind and walk it off. But the words never fell to her lips. Out of everyone, Andy was glad Mason was the one that was there. Compared to anyone else at camp, he was the only one who could have some semblance of an idea what it felt like. Gods she didn’t want to go to the med hut. She refused to step foot in that place since the last time she was there, after Mason pulled her out of the Underworld. That place always rubbed her the wrong way. The scent of sterile medical supplies hovered in the air only masking the long standing smell of death and decay.

But the footsteps continued onward, farther than where the med hut was. The leaves rustled overhead while the air filled with the scents of fresh fallen rain and pine trees. Andy’s eyes slowed opened to see that Mason was taking her back to her cabin. She exhaled softly through her nose able to relax, even if only a fraction. She subconsciously grabbed a small handful of Mason’s almost as a way to reassure her that she was awake and it was real.

Softness hugged her as Mason laid her down on her bed. "Take it easy, Andy.” She nodded her head, looking up at him as laid on her side, curled in on herself. As he wondered off, the reality of it all hit her like a hammer to her chest. Andy sat up abruptly, clutching her chest as the panic overwhelmed her. Hecate said he was dead. She said it! Why would she lie!?

Who was Andy kidding, that’s what her mother did best… Lie. She pulled her legs in toward her chest, burying her face into her knees while her hands cradled her head. It seemed as though everyday at camp was getting harder and harder to bear. That piece by piece she was chipping away becoming a husk of what she used to be. A zombie going through the motions. Maybe she was just going crazy? Everyone thought she was crazy before she came to camp. Speaking to ghosts, magic… a dead brother now alive? It sounded crazy. She sighed, focusing on her breathing but remained unmoving.

Ji-hyun nodded his head at Sloane in a silent gesture of approval or something of the sort. "Good win. I'll just be off to get some help with this, don't want to get sepsis.” He gave a dry chuckle before he started to part ways and head for first aid.

Sloane stood there in silence for a good moment as her mind toiled over what to do. Then with a sigh, she jogged after him. ”Hey uh,” she motioned her hand at his wound. ”I can take care of that… if you want.” She attempted her best smile, which for Sloane, was a sad excuse for a grin but it was something. ”After all, it was kinda my fault.”

With that, Sloane nodded her head toward the direction of the cabins. She wasn’t in the mood to deal with everyone in the main hall. After all, this was their first large competition against one another. Who knows how the campers would act. Would they be civil like Wes was? Sore winners? Sorer losers? She didn’t know if they’d get the blame for losing but she wasn’t going to sit around there to find out either.

Luckily, Sloane kept a first aid kit with her on most occasions. Usually it was for Sylas, who more often than not, had a tendency to get into fights. And although he always won, he never escaped unscathed… And then it was her job to suture him up. Plus, as much as she was unwilling to admit it, she needed to make friends. And Ji-Hyun seemed like one of the least intimidating people at camp… Someone maybe her brother would leave alone.

Wes placed his hand on Trinity’s shoulder able to hear the strain in her voice even without seeing her face. It wasn’t an easy feat for anyone, especially a friend, to break news to someone. He understood that. But in the end, it’s better to hear it from a friend rather than discovering it on your won or worse.

"Come on guys, she's gonna need the biggest support system she can get,” Mason said toward the both of them as he carried Andy out of the hall. Trinity flashed Wes a tight smile when she noticed the flag, but he simply shrugged his shoulders and motion his head toward Mason. It wasn’t the time.

He followed the son of Hades as he carried Andy past the med hut and toward her cabin. Wes wanted to step forward… place his hand on her and just help ease her. But with a situation like this, he kept to himself. If she needed his help, she’d ask. But he couldn’t deny that she’s been… different for awhile now. Maybe no one else sensed it like he did? Maybe his abilities only mad him able to notice. But he did.

Wes remained with Trinity outside the cabin as Mason took Andy inside. He couldn’t even begin to try and empathize with Andy. He had no idea what she was going through. But his heart went out to her. His gaze shifted to the blonde beside him just before Mason rejoined them outside. "So you've really seen him then? Did he say much?”

Trinity shook her head. “Not to me.”

”He seemed… off,” Wes admitted looking between the two. ”I don’t know how to explain it. I just felt it,” he added motioning his hand toward his chest. No doubt an Aphrodite kid thing. ”He was quiet. When had Daniel ever been the type to not talk?” He could be wrong. Wes and Daniel weren’t best friends or anything before the battle. But it was just something he felt in his gut. Wes had a hard time wrapping his mind around it all, even when he saw it with his own eyes. Why wouldn’t Daniel go to see Andy first? It didn’t make sense.

"I got some things to iron out with Andy if you two don't mind.”

Wes put his hand on Trinity’s shoulder while nodding his head in acknowledgement toward Mason. ”If you need anything…” He didn’t need to say anything else. Wes followed Trinity a bit aways from Andy’s cabin, giving the two the space they needed, but staying close enough to deter others.

When his gaze fell to the blonde before him, her face was sad. No doubt, upset about the distress she caused a friend. She closed the distance between them and put her head against his chest, sulking against his rain soaked shirt. Wes brought his hand up to cup the back of her head and neck as he placed a kiss upon her golden main. “I should have waited for you. You could have broke it to her better and helped her.”

Wes exhaled through his nose while his thumb gently stroked the back of her head. ”There’s no easy way to break something like that to someone, especially a friend. You did the right thing. And I’m certain Andy is thankful you told her rather than anyone else or finding out herself.” He was silent for a long moment before continuing. ”Mason, out of anyone, will be able to help her.” He didn’t need to explain what he meant. She knew.

Trinity sighed and pulled back from him, first looking at the flag that hung out of his pocket then up at him. But her gaze didn’t last there long before scanning his body probably looking for injuries. “You don't look too beaten up so that's good. How'd you all fare?”

He chuckled halfheartedly and gave a shrug of his shoulders. ”I’d like to say I bested everyone on the other team… took them on single handedly.” He smirked but the facade quickly faded and his voice changed to a calm, humble level. ”It was nothing spectacular. Ji-hyun and Sloane were the only people at the flag. The hound did most of the work. And honestly… my biggest enemy was climbing a tree in the rain.” Wes laughed, running his hand back through his hair that still had traces of rain. Then with a sigh, he pulled the flag from his pocket and held it out to Trinity. ”Here.”
