PERSONALITY:
{Hot-Headed, Stubborn, Loyal, Caring, Loner}
Melissa has never been one for first impressions, nor second or third ones for that matter, but even so she always tends to make one. Though Melissa has very few friends, the few she does have she is very close to. Mel is completely loyal to her friends, going to extreme lengths to make this known to them. Despite how at odds it is for her personality Mel can be quite caring, supporting a friend through rough times, doing whatever she can to help them, is something she is known to do. Though she does like to keep to the quieter side of her group. Despite this she has been known to be quiet the wild child sometimes, coming up with crazy but surprisingly fun stuff for her and her friends to do. Strangers are usually the ones getting the worst of Mel's personality unless she approached them. More than once Melissa has been known to be reserved to the point of ignoring someone, sarcastic to the point of being cruel, or even being extremely blunt to the point of embarrassment(usually for the other person).
One of her major flaws, Melissa is someone you could easily equivalate to a field of land mines. Though she has recovered incredibly from her experiences Melissa has many things that can set off her temper and when she is truly angry Mel has no control over her temper. It is very rare to get away from an angry Melissa unscathed.
Despite this after her rage subsides Mel quite often regrets her actions. Her caring nature coming out just enough for either a gesture of good will and possibly an apology, heartfelt no matter how snappy or soft spoken it is. For those she cares about, very few existing, if Mel were ever to snap on them she doesn't now what she'd do and highly fears the day this could happen.
The second most prominent of her character flaws is her total disregard for rules. She has never felt, and probably never will feel, the need to follow someone else's rules. Though she has a strict moral code she holds herself this has gotten her into quite a few bouts of trouble both in school and out.
Though outwardly it can appear that Melissa has many different sides she has never felt that true of herself. More feeling that she shows only fraction of herself to each person, afraid of showing herself completely and being rejected.
Above all, Mel makes sure that she keeps most people at a distance with a bitchy demeanor and horrible attitude, she has always been able to count the number of people close to her on one hand and prefers it this way... or at least that's what she likes to tell herself despite her occasional loneliness. In her entire life Mel has only cried once in front of someone, that being her father. She is usually very careful to keep her weaknesses from others, having gotten her pride from her father.

FAMILY::
Bridgett Callaghan|38|Mother
Mel hates her mother just as much as her mother ignored her, which was a lot. Ever since she was little her mother had made it clear that she wanted nothing to do with her and Mel got the message loud and clear. They never talked, unless her mom wanted something from her, and they never spent time together.
After her mother sold her she only saw the woman once more and she almost killed her on sight but Ares stopped her.


RELATIONSHIP WITH GODLY PARENT:
It wasn't until Mel got into her first fight at six years old that Ares had any contact with his daughter. Even then, it wasn't until Mel was 13 that she met him for the first time and when he told her who he was she punched him in the face.
After that Ares didn't blame the girl for being mad and decided to give her the space he assumed she would want or at least, that's what Mel assumed. In all honesty he could have been mad at her the whole time, she didn't know. Over a year later he went to her home only to fine the place she had lived abandoned and went on to search for her. It took just over a year before Ares let his pride go and went to the other Gods for help. A few months later Mel was found but she was near death and at the touch of any male, god or mortal she flew into a snarling rage.
After that, Mel being 16, Ares left her to stay permanatly at Camp Athens and eventually he went to visit her. She had clung to him, sobbing, and he had held her until she stopped. It was the only time she had cried in front of someone else and having spent that incredibly vulnerably moment with Ares help grow a bond between Mel and her father that she had assumed would be impossible.

BIO:
Growing up Mel's mother never paid her much mind, pretending she didn't exist once she was 5 and old enough to take care of herself in her mother's opinion. As such Mel grew up raising herself, the only help her mother provided being food, old clothes, and a roof. When Mel was 6 she got into her first fight and lost horribly coming home with a broken arm and a blood covered face. Afterwards, when she her arm was healed, Mel punched the kid who broke her arm and lost again. She did this over and over again until two years later she won, whether it be due to her demi-god blood or growing strength. She continued to pick fights and gradually got better at fighting the kids her age and slightly older. When Mel was 10 she was kicked out of her first school. Her mother beat her visciously but luckily, there was another school close-by that she could go to so that's where she went. She lasted 3 months at the new school before they expelled her as well. That was when the moving began. Every few months, whenever Mel got kicked out of the last school that was close enough they moved. This was Mel's life for until she was 13. A few months after her birthday Melissa had found a fight club near her new school and had been frequenting it. Haggling was the easiest way to earn money at her age and with her mother's definition of food she desperatly needed the money so she went every week. One night, Mel pissed off the wrong guys, known to be lackeys to some drug lord or mobster of some sort. When the cheated men came after her father was there, taking on all five guys as if it was nothing before Mel could even move. Once he was finished he turned to her but only got a gruff. "Thanks" and a slightly annoyed look. When he announced that he was her father, and she realized he was serious, she punched him in the face and stormed off after calling him an asshole.
After that, whether due to arrogance, hurt pride, anger, or respect for Mel, Ares decided to leave her alone. Sadly, it was the worst time to do so. The guys her father had beaten the crap out of came after the following weak, showing up at her house. Her mother simple stared at them blankly as they grabbed Mel when she arrived home from school, her only reaction being a suprised smile when they gave her a roll of hundred dollar bills for her silence. Melissa ended up a slave though she never broke to her 'owners' being sold from one person to another as she refused to yield. Wehn she turned 15 on person decided to keep her and tortured her physically and emotionally for an entire year before she snapped. She killed the man, ran away from the place as quickly as she could, and never looked back. She was found by Ares and a few other minor gods and demi-gods who had agreed to help him search for her four days after she got away. Any male who came within range of her caused her to go into a panic, fighting with savage brutality to get away. One of the females in the group took her and brought her to Camp athens at Ares' request.
For almost an entire year Melissa didn't speak to anyone, including Ares who visited every few months. A secluded but cozy cabin was built for her in the woods and Melissa barely left it, supplies being brought to her. The first place she went when she finally went to the main part of camp was the training area. She ended up making one or two friends but they were older and pratically fully trained, not needing to attend the camp anymore. For almost 3 years Mel stayed at Camp Athens year round but recently she got a small house on the coast a few hours away from the camp which was where she spent her recent time out of camp.

FAVORITE POWER:
Though if asked she'd say her favorite power by far is the ability to conjure any weapon at will, truly Mel likes her ability to control 'dark' emotions (as she thinks of them) far more. Being able to turn the smallest bit of anger, envy or sadness into full blown rage, jealousy or despair is something she loves having control over both from the thrill of wielding the power and it's usefulness.

PETS:
Shadow
Her Oldest Dog. Melissa got Shadow when he was a puppy from her father 3 years ago. He has always been quite calm but followed her around everywhere though she has been able to convince him to stay in her cabin over the years.
Demon
The Youngest, Mel bought Demon as a puppy with her father at the begining of Camp Athen's last year. She is about one and a half years old now and is extremely friendly and energetic as well as playful. Still not fully grown, Demon is already quite big and extremely clumsy.
Rage
Mel's Newest, Rage is her most aggressive dog. Having found him in a dog fighting ring Mel jumped between him and two dogs before they could hurt each other fatally. Rage, though aggressively playful with those he knows and trust, is often extremely guarded and has been known to bite strangers who thought to pet him.

Location:
Cabin-->Training Area-->Cabin-->Kitchen
Melissa had gotten onto campus in the middle of the previous night, some time after everyone had gone to sleep. After spending the night unpacking the few things she hadn't left at her cabin the previous year and getting Shadow, Demon, and Rage settled in Melissa had left long before dawn. Being an insomniac Melissa didn't get much sleep and so, while the sun began to rise she was in the training room beating the crap out of various dummies and punching bags. A few hours later, just before the majority of campers awoke, Melissa quickly walked the path back to her cabin to shower. Where as most Ares children resided near the training area Melissa had chosen a cabin in a wooded area of camp. Though she was the only one who lived in the cabin it could easily fit five people in it comfortably, even with Rage, Shadow, and Demon running around, the only reason it had been unoccupied being that it was so secluded and at least a 15 minute walk to the center of camp. Tripping over her three dogs, Melissa went and took a quick shower before getting changed into a pair of skinny jeans and a black crop top. Leaving the cabin Melissa headed down the path that led to the center of camp. Noticing that a few campers had already started to leave their cabins Melissa added her 'resting bitch face' to her outfit.

Making her way to the main hall Melissa slipped into the kitchen shortly after Adrian left, double checking that no one saw her as she did so. She didn't know why she kept her baking, and occasional cooking, a secret. Often she told herself it was because it would ruin her 'bad-ass, Don't mess with me' reputation but truly she felt there was something else keeping her from others knowing. As she looked around the kitchen Melissa ducked to get past the window that made part of the kitchen visible to the dining room. Once passed it she rose and, seeing Adrian's dishes in the sink, Melissa smiled. Shaking her head Melissa walked over and, quickly washing the dishes, including a few items she needed to bake, she set the others aside to dry. Cleaning off a counter out of view of the dining room Melissa decided to make a large batch of chocolate chip cookies. Though usually she wouldn't do something so big in the middle of the day, afraid of getting caught, her oven back home in New York had broken two months ago and she had missed baking. 'I can't believe I've gone three (or was it four now?) years here and not once has anyone caught me baking... I wonder if anyone has figured out it was me...' Shaking her head she focused on what she was doing, grabbing canisters of flour and sugar for the cookies and walking back to the pantry not wanting to forget any of the ingredients. A few minutes later, all the things she needed on the counter she had cleared, Melissa set about measuring the ingredients.

Location:
California-->Camp Athens-->Main Hall

*As the car drove them closer and closer to the airport Narissa left out an annoyed sigh and shot a pointed glare at Lachlan. After her father had found her in Paris three days ago he had brought her back home and she had locked herself in her room. That night she had tried to sneak out her window only to be caught by her older brother Lachlan. Poseidon and Lachlan had decided to send her to Camp Athens as a 'last resort'. Narissa couldn't decide if she was excited or pissed, on one hand she had wanted to go to Camp Athens for years but on the other hand she was being forced to go whether she wanted to or not. She hadn't talked to Lachlan or their father since the two had told her and it seemed to be really getting on Lachlan's nerves, especially since Narissa was rarely so quiet. "Nari come on. What did you expect us to do? You just disappeared with no explanation and honestly your behavior hasn't been exemplary as of late. Did you really expect neither of us to be worried?" Narissa gave him a look of cool indifference and then looked away and he gave her a glare colder than her own had been. "Fine, be that way. I hope your stay at Camp Athens fixes your attitude." Moments later they pulled up to the airport and Narissa grabbed her carry-on bag, a black backpack, and got out. "There's nothing to fix."*

Narissa let out annoyed sigh as she stood at the entrance to Camp Athens. The scene with her brother had stopped there as she had refused to talk to him afterwards, not even to say goodbye. She had seen the hurt look on his face as she left him to board the plane without looking back but she had forced herself to ignore it. The plane ride afterwards had been uneventful, boring even since she had spent the majority listening to music and staring out the window blankly or sleeping. Afterwards one of Lachlan's friends, whom he had met going to Camp Athens and who lived in Greece, had been there to drive her to camp.
With another sigh Narissa entered the camp, dragging her luggage with her, which consisted of a large rolling suitcase, a sightly smaller suitcase she held in her left hand, a huge duffel bag and a backpack. To say the least it was all extremely heavy. Stopping and looking around Narissa saw a few people around but most were in conversations with others and Narissa didn't want to bug anyone. Seeing a decent size building ahead Narissa decided to head towards it, hoping to find someone who could tell her where the hell she was supposed to go. and what she was supposed to do. Despite her horrid mood she plastered a smile onto her face, hoping to look more approachable, and started towards the building.

Andy could quickly tell that the topic bothered him. Maybe she shouldn't have hugged him or... She didn't know. She brought a hand up to rub the back of her neck, nodding her head at his comment, "We should head to camp and get some food. We'll figure something out with the barrier." She quickly tried to put what he told her behind her. She appreciated that he shared something so personal with her. It meant a lot. But she could tell it was difficult to talk about and she didn't want to dwell on it. She didn't like seeing him sad. "I don't know about you, but I can't concentrate when I'm hungry." She laughed softly, shrugging her shoulders. "You men are like garbage disposals... Always hungry." She teased. She couldn't tell if she was hungry herself, but she knew she needed to eat. She wasn't going to say no to some bacon either.

Andy gasped when Ajax said, "Race you to the main hall?" Then ran off out of the kitchen, disappearing into his cabin, presumably darting towards the main hall. She laughed before shouting after him, "CHEATER!" She pushed off the counter as she began to run after him. Grasping the doorway to the kitchen, she whipped herself into the hallway and sprinted for the door. Damn he's fast! And here she thought she was a pretty good sprinter. Reaching the front door she ran through it out onto the porch. Instead of taking the steps up to the door, she jumped clear over them and landed in the dirt a few feet away.

Wes winked towards trinity as she said, "See you around, Wes." He nodded his head towards her as he took her bowl, stacking it on top of his plate, "Yeah... Catch you later blondie." He liked the fiery Ares daughter. Not like he was going to try to sleep with her or anything. But he enjoyed the banter they had. He could see them becoming those friends that like to piss each other off. He watched her leave, bugging Alex and Daniel on her way out. Which reminded him. He made his way over to the duos table, setting the dishes down as he sat down for a second. "How's the brother doing?" He directed his question towards Alex. Wes didn't know the guy but he figured it was polite conversation to ask about Ajax since he carried him to the hall and what not.

Then Wes glanced over towards Daniel. "I had a little... tussle with your sister on the trails this morning." He grinned mischievously. "She's a hottie." He winked at the Hecate boy before standing back up and grabbing the dirty dishes he was carrying. He headed towards the kitchen, stopping as he almost reached the door to turn and look at Daniel, adding one final comment, "Might have to stop by and see her later... If you know what I mean." He raised his brows suggestively before ducking into the kitchen.

He was laughing to himself as he entered, almost missing the blonde that was baking away. He quietly made his way over to the sink, setting the dishes in it. Then he quietly moved up a few feet behind the girl, leaning his elbow on a near by counter. Smirking, he cleared his throat to alert her of his presence before he spoke, "Whatcha making there?" He looked towards the food then back at her. "I mean I just ate," He rubbed his stomach, "But I could make some room." He teased seeing as how whatever she was making smelled and looked amazing.

Jennova smiled at her brother as she placed her fork on her plate and pushed it aside. She placed her hands on the table and changed her expression to more of a business type. "Yes, I've learned my lesson. No I haven't talked to Dad since. I was thinking of making it up to him by ending my relationship with Toby. I know that's one thing he really wants. However I've been with the guy for two years, that's going to be extremely awkward and hard to do." Jenn looked around making sure Toby wasn't anywhere to be seen. She looked back at her brother. "Clearly I've been going about life the wrong way. None of these people will ever have our backs, we can really only count on each other. I know I've been lying to myself thinking that maybe Toby will be on my side, but in all reality I know he won't." Jennova shrugged, her heart ached at the thought of leaving him, but family comes first. If her father really did have some crazy plan to be in control she would need to close any unnecessary ties.

Adrian smiled at Alex as she spoke, he wasn't one for making friendly conversations out of no where but he thought he'd try it out. As Daniel left, Adrian cocked his eyebrow as the man left the two. He wondered if Adrian wasn't allowed to talk to Alex or something. "Sorry for upsetting your lover. Wasn't aware I couldn't speak to you." He joked with Alex, after a while of silence she left, probably to go after Daniel. Adrian pursed his lips before he thought of the training arena. He should probably find someone to pair up with. Adrian checked his pockets and realized he had forgotten his cabin keys in the kitchen. "Damnit... I'm always forgetting something." He muttered under his breath as he started to head back to the kitchen, as he headed back he remembered that he forgot to wash the dishes. Great.. He thought to himself as he reached for the door handle to the back kitchen. He instantly smelled something sweet, and looked to find a blonde woman preparing something and the son of Aphrodite talking to her.

Adrian cocked his head to the side, he didn't know of any blonde women that worked in the kitchen, he pursed his lips as he looked towards the office in the back of the kitchen, of course his keys were still in the door to the office. He walked past the two and grabbed his keys, shoving them in his pockets. Then he turned to the male in the kitchen. "Wesley, is it? I don't mean to be an asshole or anything, but staff only is allowed back here." He smiled at the man and turned to look at the girl. She was beautiful, he couldn't deny that. She was covered in tattoos and for some reason that was kind of a turn on. He glanced at what she was making and laughed to himself. He shook his head as he walked back to the office, just realizing that the four years he has been here this woman was the one leaving all the baked goodies in the kitchen.

Adrian shut the office door behind him and looked at the desk where there was a stack of papers with his name on it. He sighed as he grabbed the papers, noticing there were new requests for recipes to be made this year. He pulled out his phone and started looking for recipes to follow to accept the requests that were given to him.

"CHEATER!!" He had heard her shouting before he momentarily found his hiding spot from her.

In no time Andy had managed to catch up with him, and was only a few feet away from where he was keeping out of sight. He waited silently for a moment before jumping out in-front of her with a deep, loud, "Boo!" He chuckled with a grin. "The race is still on!" he called back to her as he ran off again, but this time he wasn't hiding behind any trees. The ground seemed to tremble slightly with every step that he took, but he didn't pay any attention to it, and remained focused on the race.

It was typical that this Camp would get into situations like the Minotaur, the poisoning, and he knew that wasn't going to be the last. All of these situations were like tests before the huge war that was heading their way, the war they had no clue about as their parents were waiting for the right moment to tell them.

Once at the hall, Ajax looked around and saw everyone, even his sister. Two guys were up by the kitchen were trying to out flirt one another with the blonde chick that was covered in tattoos, and then Hades's children who both looked suspicious in their own world at one end of the hall. He was glaring at David mostly. Ajax didn't trust him, even if he did help the others to tame the wild beast that had accidentally strolled past the protective barrier.

Anyway, he reminded himself that he would need to talk to Daniel after breakfast, so he took his eyes off of David, and Jennova, then headed over to where the food was sitting as a buffet for people to get as many servings as they wanted. Ajax made sure to fill his plate, then took at seat at the table by himself for now as he tucked in. Assuming Andy was here already, he looked over his shoulder to check exactly where in the room she was. Training would be soon too, so luckily he had gotten up as early as he did. He liked it when his day lasted longer like that.

Just as Andy gained her bearings, standing up right and readying herself to race off, Ajax bursted out in front of her. "Boo!" So surprised, she literally screamed out, quickly following it with a laugh. She playfully pushed his shoulder as he ran off, shouting back at her, "The race is still on!" She didn't hesitate to barrel after him. He was pretty fast. She couldn't tell if he was trying his hardest or trying to make the race even. Whenever there were turns in the trails, she'd reach out a hand to grab a tree and whirl herself around the bends so she didn't have to slow down. Whipping herself giving herself a little boost. Even though it was a friendly race, she was focused.

Andy was a very competitive person and she was determined to catch up and win. They were nearly to the main hall when she caught up to him, "Keep up old man!" She winked towards him before pushing forth with the last bit of effort she had to step through the door just before him. The second her shoes hit the slippery tile floor, her feet slipped out from under her. She fell over, landing on the ground cracking up laughing. That's what I get for having to win. After a moment of catching her breath, she stood up. She glanced around the room with flushed cheeks, slightly embarrassed about her less than graceful entrance.

She dusted her clothes off as she walked over to the buffet with him. She just grabbed herself an apple juice and yogurt. Walking around Ajax she bumped him with her shoulder playfully. When she got his attention, she slow clapped towards him, "I think you... didn't give it your all." She stuck her tongue out at him before nodding her head towards an empty table. "... Unless you wanna bug the love birds." She said under her breath in a teasing manner, referring to their siblings at a table together. Andy made her way towards an empty table, taking a seat so she conveniently had a view of Daniel. When his eyes met hers she raised her playfully while smirking. She crossed her legs as she shook her yogurt, then opened it and began eating. She probably should be eating more but the events of the last 24 hours has had her stomach in knots. She worried that if she ate too much training and her already less than stellar health would make her get sick. And she refused to be cooped up in her cabin all day.

Interacting With: Adrian Warhol and Wes Preston

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Having spaced out, letting her mind wander as she mixed the cookie dough, Melissa didn't even notice the laughing blonde male until he cleared his throat right beside her. Her focus snapping back to the present Melissa quickly turned her gaze on him with a frown as he spoke. "Whatcha making there? I mean I just ate," As he glanced at the bowl she silently cursed herself for her earlier mental comments. 'Whichever God or Goddess that's in charge of karma is currently on my hit list' Focusing back on the guy beside her Melissa watched him rub his stomach. "But I could make some more room." At his teasing tone Melissa frowned and she narrowed her eyes a bit, staring at him coldly. She wasn't the type to make quick friends and she didn't like when strangers were overly familiar with her. Just as she was about to tell him off Melissa watched Adrian walk into the kitchen and visibly flinched. After Adrian walked over to his office door and grabbed his keys he turned and addressed the guy beside her."Wesley, is it? I don't mean to be an asshole or anything, but staff only is allowed back here." Gratitude for the comment instantly filled her until she allowed herself to remember that she wasn't staff either. When he moved his attention to the bowl in her hands Melissa watched as he laughed and shook his head before going into his office. For a moment she just stood there, staring at the door but since he hadn't said a word to her Melissa just turned back to the bowl and went back to stirring the ingredients in the large bowl. Without looking up she addressed the guy beside her. "You heard him. Leave. Now." She made her tone icy and threatening, making sure he knew she was serious.

Finished stirring Melissa picked up the large, quite heavy bowl and walked over to a different larger counter, no longer caring if the people in the dining room saw her. Setting the bowl down Melissa went over to a cabinet and opened it to pull out a few cookie sheets and then walked over to the ovens and set them up to preheat. As she walked over to a drawer, passing the blonde guy she glanced over at him and raised a brow but didn't say anything. Without pause she grabbed a spoon and went back to the counter, starting to drop cookie dough onto the trays in a quick and precise manner.

He looked to Alex who had rejoined him as he was picking at his food aimlessly then shrugged. What did he need an apology for? Next, she asked him any plans for today. Er, general chit-chat Daniel thought on his answer for a second. It wouldn’t vary much from what others were doing, he imagined. Which wasn’t specifically planned out at this stage.
Pretty quickly, his hair was tugged on roughly and before he could think to shut out, he clenched his teeth instead and hissed through them a little. “Too kinky” Equally as quick, release was granted but he couldn’t complain, especially seeing the blonde perpetrator. Fine. I deserved that.

Wes sat by them for a second. "I had a little... tussle with your sister on the trails this morning. She's a hottie." He scrunched up his face, displeased by the perspective. Daniel would say his sister was pretty but that was the end of it. And thankfully, the end of Wes' tormenting. Or so he thought. "Might have to stop by and see her later... If you know what I mean." “Dude!” Daniel was trying to half-enjoy his meal and the thought of someone wanting to hook up with Andy… It just didn't sit well with him. And Wes picked a bad audience to share it with. It didn’t take much talk for Wes to become bored though and move on with his tormenting of an ink covered girl. He shuddered a little. Andy had the reins of her love and hook-up life but Wes of them all...Is this what it's like to have a sister developed into womanhood? Shit He decided he didn't want a sister. He was illy protective of her already and Daniel didn't like the kryptonite and effort.

He tried to resume talking to Alex but one after the other, peopled piled into the main hall and distracted Daniel's calculating mind that just adored new people and drama. That was before Andy fell ass over in the main hall with Ajax a fraction behind her. He looked between the two suspiciously. "Probably just gonna cause some trouble," he answered Alex at last. When Andy gave herself a strategic spot in Daniel's vision, he replied to her look with his own smirk. She wasn't in too hot of a position to tease after her delicate entrance. Maybe it's not so bad to have a sister from Hecate...

Jennova's embedded loyalty to their father seemed to return, bringing certain satisfaction back in David's limbs as his body relaxed. He hadn't even noticed he was still tense until he had heard her words promising to prioritize family over all. But he didn't really know if Jennova would have the cold heart to drop Toby. Especially after his healing part he played when they helped her from the underworld. But it wasn't personal. Dad didn't like any close relations that could prompt a warm heart. David nodded to Jennova. "Do what you gotta do," he agreed. It were better than family conflict.

He checked over his shoulder then looked back to his sister and smiled. He had caught Ajax's and Alex's appreciative glare. "I see you're still the popular child," he commented then rose. The company of himself had always been preferable to a slowly crowded hall. He stole an apple from a Demeter's child and smirked to Ajax as he tossed the green food up and caught it again.

He passed a new girl, judging by the bags she had in hand and he laughed. Pretty as she was, David couldn't help himself because her acting was worse than she knew. Poor girl wasn't giving off the best vibes as she thought and was probably somewhat forced to join the bunch of delinquents. "Welcome home new girl."

D I A L O G U E : # 3 9 B 5 4 A


Wes wasn't in the kitchen for more than a minute when winged victory came in and was complaining about his presence. "Wesley, is it? I don't mean to be an asshole or anything, but staff only is allowed back here." He sighed, throwing his hands up in an innocent surrendering manner, "Awesome." He watched as wings walked out of the kitchen and once he was gone Wes turned around to face the tattooed blonde. He was waiting and trying to make eye contact with him so he could talk to her again but she merely stared down at the bowl as she spoke. "You heard him. Leave. Now." He did a double take, pushing off the counter. He was about to head out of the kitchen when he pointed to the stove, "You shouldn't stand so close to the stove... Might melt your ice cold heart."

Wes was going to just head out of the hall and go towards the training area even though he had no idea what to train for, with or whatever. But he stopped the second Andy came flying in the door, quickly followed by her slipping on the ground straight onto her ass. "Smooth." He watched the brunette stand up and walk over to the buffet. As she walked over there Wes blatantly looked at her ass as she walked. After he did, he looked towards Daniel from the corner of his eye. He liked pissing Daniel off or anyone for that matter. He also didn't know when to stop.

Once Andy took a seat, before Ajax joined her Wes moved to slip onto the bench beside the brunette. "Hey there Gorgeous." Andy's smirked that she shared with her brother quickly faded the second he sat beside her. "I told your brother about our little tumble in the woods earlier." He smiled towards her, while steeling a drink from her apple juice. "What are you talking about?" She scoffed. All he did was smirk as he moved to his feet. But before he left he leaned over, flicking his index finger around a loose lock of her hair. Then whispered in her ear as he looked at Daniel, "Oh you know." And before she could do anything else, he leaned in and kissed her on the cheek.

If Andy could steam out of her ears she would. She didn't know if this son of Aphrodite was doing this to frustrate her or if this was his crude way of flirting but she didn't like it. But what made her ever more angry was when he leaned in and pressed his lips to her cheek. Before he had a chance to pull away, she clenched her fist and thrusted her elbow backwards into his groin. The impact made Wes squeal like a girl and fall back on the ground clutching his crotch as Andy took another bite of her yogurt with a smile.

Location: Camp Entrance-->Outside Main Hall
Interacting with: David Hughson

The trek up the hill towards the building had seemed to take an eternity with the heavy bags she carried but in truth, it had probably taken about five minutes. Just as she reached the building, stopping and contemplating going in, a guy walked out a few feet away from her. Taking one look at her he began to laugh and her smile immediately dropped but she forced it back on quickly. "Welcome home new girl." Narissa looked away from the laughing guy who had spoken to her and forced her smile to be a little more cheerful before she looked back. Narissa had never been one to show her true feelings to others and was usually pretty good at hiding them but she knew that her smile looked forced. "Hi. Um, I don't suppose you could help me figure out where I'm supposed to go?" As she spoke, her voice sugar sweet, Narissa let her gaze roam over the male from head to toe and her smile became a bit more genuine as a wicked gleam entered her blue eyes. 'If the other guys here look half as good as he does maybe this won't be so bad...' Quickly Narissa stood the large rolling suitcase up, set down the suitcase in her left hand, and slid the duffel bag off her left shoulder before dropping it to the ground. All three were quite heavy , weighing what she assumed to be at least 100 pounds all together,and Narissa let out a sigh of relief before looking back at the male in front of her and raising an eyebrow in wait for an answer, the wicked gleam still in her eyes and a similarly wicked smirk turning up the corners of her mouth.

Interacting With: Andy Bolton and Wes Preston

As the cocky male did a double take Melissa smirked, trying her best not to laugh. "You shouldn't stand so close to the stove... Might melt your ice cold heart." Melissa froze. As the male strode out of the kitchen Melissa slowly, carefully set down the small ice cream scoop in her hand down followed by the bowl. Anger radiating off of her she went and washed her hands and then walked to the doorway leading to the hall. Stopping in the doorway Melissa let her icy glare sweep the room once before her eyes landed on the guy named Wesley just as he kissed a girl she thought was a daughter of Hecate on the cheek. Melissa watched, waiting as the girl quickly elbowed Wesley in the groin. As he fell to the ground Melissa walked over, anger almost a tangible thing, and spoke briefly to the girl. "Sorry, I thought I had already taken out the trash. Let me get that for you." Picking up the male by the back of the neck with one hand Melissa stood him up and shoved him all the way to the door of the dining hall before turning him to face her and punching him in the face, hard. “The next time you talk to me like that things will be much worse for you. And I never want to see you making a move on an unwilling girl again. Am I Understood?!" The venom in Melissa's voice was a living thing and an aura of anger, savage and lethal, radiated around her as she spoke to Wesley. Her glare colder than Arctic ice Melissa waited for a response. Out of the corner of her eyes she saw a blonde girl and a male, who had been talking a few feet away, turn to watch the scene, the female staring with wide eyes, but Melissa ignored them as well as the people still in the dining hall that were watching her.

David's intention was to have his say and slip out the door but the girl had decided to ask him if he could help her out. And David didn't know why but he actually stopped, giving his attention to the girl. "Um. Well normally Ajax over there takes care of the newbies," David threw a thumb back vaguely. "But we should probably give him a break." He heard himself say as he caught the way she was eyeing him and the face that implied bad intentions. Slowly, his own smirk crept across his features. Before all the hell started going on behind him. He stepped beside the new girl watching the scene unfold in all the tattooed girl's unjustified rage. It was a scary thing actually. Daddy issues, obviously. Why else would she be so mad and unpleasant. Especially since it looked like she pursued the guy for a fight.

"Uhh...." he blinked trying to change subject and get out before the crazy bitch started a fight with David just for looking in her general direction. "So...who...whose child are you?" he resumed to ask. David picked up one of her bags in prompt to leave and show the girl to her cabin. There were plenty of other opportunities to watch a fight.

Daniel had blinked and Wes was moving in on his sister. Daniel shifted uncomfortably and sat a little taller. The child of Aphrodite was dislike-ably too close to her. Daniel narrowed his eyes as Wes played with her hair and laid one on Andy Just her cheek he had to remind himself to stay calm. But his favorite bit of all was Andy knocking her elbow back into his sensitive area which is when Daniel lit up again, proud to be associated with her. On some level he should have sympathized with the poor guy but Wes asked for it. Obviously Andy was the type to take care of herself.

Daniel's gaze flickered to the ink covered girl marching up to Wes while down and pushing him out of the door of the dining area. Daniel rose and followed. Not to be the kind to gather and chant 'fight, fight, fight' for once but because Wes had already received his punishment and it didn't need to excess to brutality. Wes was a minor nuisance was all. He saw the hard swung punch covering his mouth "Oooo! Shit" Daniel dragged his hand down to his jaw. What the heck had the guy done to piss her off so much?

Speech: Blue Thought: Green



ImageAjax wasn't the one for fights among themselves unless there was a hard explained reason for it. Usually though, he'd sit in the background silently unless Alex was involved. He had just witnessed a girl covered in ink, and Andy hit Wes for coming onto them. Wes deserved it in some way, but then again.. he was the son of Aphrodite after all, so what did they expect? but a punch to the face was a bit over the line. "That's enough!" he ordered as he climbed off of his bench, bellowing in a deep voice like his father Zeus, whilst leaving his food on the table half finished.

"This hall is for everyone to have breakfast, to relax before training. If you got an issue!? then take it outside. Now!" Ajax was looking to both Wes, and Melissa as he pointed his finger towards the exit. He wasn't going to tell them again. He knew people weren't going to be happy with him breaking up some fight, but if they wanted to watch a tussle!? then they could join them outside too. He wanted to eat in peace. "We don't have time to fight over petty little things, we got a war coming. Just tell him you're not interested, and leave it at that. If he doesn't leave you alone? then you can hit him again." he smiled to her now, and looked to Wes. "Really isn't your day.." Ajax then wandered back to his food.

Image While everyone else was too busy arguing, or just watching the drama in the hall, Alex heard the messenger of the Gods flutter in after Daniel had explained what he was going to be doing. "Alexandria Valis?" He called out, holding a letter in his hand. Alex put her hand up into the air, causing him to fly over to her in his winged boots, then handed the letter to her before taking off out of the hall. It was a letter from her father. She slowly sat back down onto her bench, and opened up the envelope before taking out the letter carefully, then unfolded it before her before reading it out loud in her head.

Zeus couldn't really write much, because it had to remain a secret, and that is what was written down after he told them to go see him. She looked up after finishing the letter, and found her brother looking in her direction with a questionable look on his face. So, she motioned her head towards the door, causing Ajax to get up after finishing his food, and followed his sister outside, then to the side of the building out of sight. She gave him the letter so he could read over it for himself.

"I think dad's onto something important, big brother, which would make sense if you think about it, because the offspring of Hades have been pretty-damn-edgy since they got back from the underworld. I don't trust either of them, even if the female did save you." Sure her brother would understand, because their Fathers were natural rivals. Zeus was the most powerful, and Hades was the most Jealous. "Then we go see dad and see what he has to say. But if anything happens between now, and then? you go alone, or with someone you trust. Okay?" He tilted his chin down towards his chest as he looked to his sister. "Okay." he felt a but. "No but's, Al. You're my responsibility." Alex nodded before folding up the letter after taking out the key from the envelope, and stuffing it into her bra. No-one would dare look for it there.

D I A L O G U E : # 3 9 B 5 4 A


Wes was starting to stand up, chuckling at the nut shot Andy gave him. It didn't particularly hurt too bad, he was just laying it on thick to play the victim. Then the tattooed blonde from the kitchen made her way through the tables to grab him by the back of his neck. "What the-" He said just before the blonde spoke towards Andy, "Sorry, I thought I had already taken out the trash. Let me get that for you." He had half a mind to pull himself free from her grip but since he was taken by surprise he allowed her to yank him outside the main hall. The second they were outside, he barely had a chance to gain his balance from being dragged outside before the feisty blonde through a punch right into his jaw. The blunt force of it partnered with his off kilter balance sent him stumbling backwards. His hand quickly raising to cup his face as he glared daggers at the woman. Who the hell does she think she is!?

“The next time you talk to me like that things will be much worse for you. And I never want to see you making a move on an unwilling girl again. Am I Understood?!" She concluded after the punch. Wes hadn't noticed Daniel was outside as well until he said, "Oooo! Shit" His brows furrowed as she regained his balance, "All this because of a stupid comment. You need to lighten up Goldilocks." He wiped his hand across his mouth before spitting the blood at her feet, "You are lucky I don't believe in hitting a woman..." He was practically growling at this point. He knew he liked to ruffle feathers but this was ridiculous. He could understand why Andy did what she did... He crossed a personal boundary but this chick was irate.

Andy obviously wasn't a fan of Wes planting one on her. But she wasn't mad enough to have some random blonde she's never met to drag him outside. He was her friend for lack of a better term, and she was putting him in his place. She didn't even hit him that hard and she was 99% sure that Wes was overreacting to tease her. But when Andy saw the blonde come and grab him, claiming something about forgetting to take the trash out. The second the girl began to drag him out of the hall, Andy shot up from her seat, nearly tripping over it as she hurried to follow after them. She reached the door just after her brother, only hearing the BAM of the punch. It wasn't until she snaked her way around Daniel that she saw Wes holding his jaw, spitting blood out from his mouth.

She didn't know what she was thinking, but Andy ran in the middle of the 2 of them. "Woah woah woahhhh!" Her back was to Wes as she held her hands out towards the tattooed blonde. "I am pretty sure there is nothing that Wes could say that warrants him getting slugged in the face!... Unless he said he was going to sacrifice your first born child to Hades or something." She glanced over her shoulder towards him before looking back at the blonde. "And I don't need you fighting my battles for me. The only person I could possibly understand getting pissy about what he did, besides me, would be him." She motioned towards her brother. "But believe it or not I can take care of myself!" Andy wasn't a fan of mindless rage regardless of who it was aimed at. "How is it fair going berserk on a guy that wouldn't hurt a fly? You can't pick a fight with a guy who obviously would never hurt a woman.... He's harmless."

Ajax came outside and was definitely not happy with the current events, "This hall is for everyone to have breakfast, to relax before training. If you got an issue!? then take it outside. Now!... We don't have time to fight over petty little things, we got a war coming. Just tell him you're not interested, and leave it at that. If he doesn't leave you alone? then you can hit him again." She watched him turn to Wes stating something about it not being his day, then he returned inside. She stood there quiet for a long moment, before saying one final thing to the girl, "If you're going to pick a fight... At least have the decency to do it with someone who can and will fight back."

Andy looked towards Wes, nodding her head towards the main hall. "Come on lets get you some ice." She headed inside and walked over into the kitchen. She grabbed a clean cloth, and filled it with ice from the freezer. Wes walked in behind her, cupping his jaw with his hand. Andy turned to face him, and held out the ice for him. "I'm sorry... I wasn't expecting all of that," She waved her hand in the direction of the door, "To happen. I was just messing with you." Wes reached out to take the ice from her and placed it against his jaw. "Don't worry about it cupcake... You didn't hurt me. I was just trying to get a rise out of Daniel." He smirked before adding half heartedly, "Girl's got her panties in a twist." "A girl like that... Doesn't wear panties." She added sarcastically before patting his shoulder and heading back out into the main eating area. She made her way back to wear her yogurt and juice sat, taking a seat. But she didn't continue eating, she just stared at the food and stirred the yogurt with a spoon.

"Um. Well normally Ajax over there takes care of the newbies," Narissa watched as the guy threw a gesture over his shoulder pointing the way he had come with his thumb. "But we should probably give him a break." Nariss, the wicked gleam in her eyes clearly visable, widened her equay wicked smirk as the guy met her eyes and gained a similar look. Just then Narissa stared wide eyes as a blonde tattooed girl dragged a guy out of the big building and hit him in the jaw. From only a few yards away Narissa could tell the blow was hard and would bruise but as the guy she was talking to, who had stepped beside her, spoke she focused back on him. "Uhh..." She watched, her smirk returning as he blicked a few times, looking for a conversation to start. "So... Who... Whose child are you?" As the guy asked he grabbed the suitcase she had been carrying and turned away from the fight. Grabbing her stuff Narissa's eyes lost their wicked gleam at the question but she answered anyways. "Poseidon." She spit the name, trying her best not to start swearing after it. She didn't know what it was about this boy but she felt strangely... relaxed around him. She realized now what she was thinking and threw on a convincing smile. "He's great! I-I saw him right before I left Cali!" She almost winced as she stumbled over the lie, remembering Lachlan's face at the airport. 'The best lies have a bit of the truth in them...' She thought as she followed after the guy. She had seen him before she left Cali, when he dropped her off two days before her flight."By the way, my name is Narissa. What's yours?"

"Oooo! Shit" Melissa glanced up startled at the proclamation and during that moment Wes got to his feet, glaring. Melissa forced herself to look back at Wes, watching as he stood and spat blood out at her feet. "All this because of a stupid comment. You need to lighten up Goldilocks. You are lucky I don't believe in hitting a woman..."
"Woah woah woahhhh!" Melissa's gaze slid to Andy and her face lost all emotion as she calmed herself, watching the brunette who stepped in front of her. "I am pretty sure there is nothing that Wes could say that warrants him getting slugged in the face!... Unless he said he was going to sacrifice your first born child to Hades or something. And I don't need you fighting my battles for me. The only person I could possibly understand getting pissy about what he did, besides me, would be him." The brunette motioned towards another male. "But believe it or not I can take care of myself! How is it fair going berserk on a guy that wouldn't hurt a fly? You can't pick a fight with a guy who obviously would never hurt a woman.... He's harmless." As the other girl finished Melissa heard another person exit the hall and looked over to see Ajax. "This hall is for everyone to have breakfast, to relax before training. If you got an issue!? then take it outside. Now! We don't have time to fight over petty little things, we got a war coming. Just tell him you're not interested, and leave it at that. If he doesn't leave you alone? then you can hit him again." When at the end of his rant Ajax smiled at her Melissa almost gasped in surprise but managed to keep her face blank. "Really isn't your day.." Ajax said before turning and going back into the hall.
"If you're going to pick a fight... At least have the decency to do it with someone who can and will fight back." A pang of regret hit Mel as she turned away and walked into the kitchen, followed by the brunette who got ice and left without another word. Grabbing a bottle of pain relievers she kept in the kitchen for when she worked out too hard before coming to secretly cook Melissa went back out to the dining hall and walked over to Wes and the two girls with him to hear the end of their conversation. "Girl's got her panties in a twist." "A girl like that... Doesn't wear panties." The girl said before patting Wes' shoulder and then walked away. Clearing her throat to grab Wes and the other girl's attention Mel set he bottle down on the table Wes was sitting at. Not looking at him she spoke normally, trying to seem indifferent though she was a bit worried. "Take three at a time every four hours, that's how many I take after sparring." She turned to leave but then stopped and sighed. "If you want it I have a jar of healing balm from one of the Apollo kids I'm friends with in my cabin. After I throw the cookies in the oven I'm heading back there."

As Wes stood there, holding the ice pack to his jaw he heard someone approach but didn't look up at first. "Are you alright? Who did this to you?" When he realized who's voice it was, he glanced up to see Alex standing there in the room with him and Andy. Before he could speak Andy answered for him, "The tattooed blonde punched him. But I don't know if it was from what I did or...?" She looked towards him with a questioning glance, "What did you say to her?" Wes removed the ice from his jaw, stretching his face while making a strange pained expression before speaking. "I just asked her what she was making. Then when feathers told me I wasn't allowed in the kitchen, she... very rudely told me to leave. All I said was You shouldn't stand so close to the stove... Might melt your ice cold heart." He shrugged his shoulders before reapplying the ice. Andy couldn't help but chuckle, "Sounds like something Daniel or I would say."

After Andy had left the room, Wes was slightly surprised that Alex had stayed around. "Is there anything I can do to help?" Just as he was about to respond, he saw the punch thrower enter the room. He tensed up, looking away from her while trying to bite his tongue. He glanced from the corner of his eyes as she set a medicine bottle on the table. "Take three at a time every four hours, that's how many I take after sparring. If you want it I have a jar of healing balm from one of the Apollo kids I'm friends with in my cabin. After I throw the cookies in the oven I'm heading back there." He grabbed the bottle, stepping in front of her before she left, holding it out towards her. "Thanks Doc. But I have my own pain killers." If that was her idea of a shitty apology, well he wasn't buying it. He moved away from her and went back over to Alex. In a gentlemanly way, he placed his hand on her upper back and led her out into the main eating area.

"Thanks Al. I think I'm alright." He managed a slight smile. He appreciated that she at least cared enough to wonder if he was ok and try to help him. It was no surprise to him that many of the people at camp didn't like him. But Alex didn't seem like everyone else and he was grateful for that. "I think you're the only person here that somewhat likes me." He laughed softly.

Andy felt like she had been sitting there stirring her yogurt for a good 5 minutes. With a sigh she finally stood up and threw out the remnants of her food, realizing she had lost her appetite. As she headed towards the exit of the main hall, she walked past Wes and Alex. She flashed them both a quick smile, raising her hand to pat him on the shoulder. "Hang in there Romeo." Andy then moved her gaze towards Alex, moving her hand to gently squeeze the girl's arm in a friendly manner before she exited the hall. Once she stepped outside she inhaled a deep breath of the fresh air, while slipping her hands into the pockets of her hoodie. She began to start walking towards the training area, but when she was a few feet away from the hall she looked back at the hall and saw Ajax sitting on a bench.

Normally Andy probably would have walked on because she never thought she was the best at comforting but he looked like something was bothering him. She slowly spun around, trudging over to him. She came to a stop, standing before him. "Hey..." She spoke quietly before moving to take a seat beside him, "Everything ok?" She looked over at him, the wind softly blowing the hairs that fell loose from her ponytail across her face. She waited a long moment before adding, "You know," Her tone was a little more playful this time, "You're cuter when you smile." She then giggled softly and smiled towards him. It was none of her business what was bothering him. And he didn't have to tell her. She just wanted him to have someone to talk to if he felt the need. And if not... Well she was always good at making people smile or laugh.

Image Wes looked up to her, and Alex smiled softly as she waited for him to say what had happened, but she looked to Andy who explained for him. "The tattooed blonde punched him. But I don't know if it was from what I did or...?" That annoyed Alex, because who gave that tattooed blonde the right to lay one on Wes? she kept silent for now, waiting for Wes's side of the story. "What did you say to her?" Alex returned her gaze to the poor guy, silently still waiting for him to tell her as she gently moved her hand from his arm. "I just asked her what she was making. Then when feathers told me I wasn't allowed in the kitchen, she... very rudely told me to leave. All I said was You shouldn't stand so close to the stove... Might melt your ice cold heart." Andy chuckled, and Alex did too as a grin grew on her face while playfully nudging him. "I'm sorry this happened to you, Wes. I don't agree with men hitting women, and I don't agree with women hitting men. Your comment was just playful."

Image After Andy had left the room, Wes was about to say something, but that same damn blonde had appeared, causing Alex to glare over at her. If she was going to say one wrong thing to Wes, then Alex would happily give her a piece of her mind. Alex watched as she placed some kind of medicine on the table for him. This was no apology, it was more like trying to suck up to him, to kiss his ass. Alex didn't like her voice at this moment in time, let alone her presence entirely. Alex let Wes handle this, but she'd be ready to step in. Wes had practically told her to get lost, which caused Alex to smile again before he had his hand on her lower back, leading them both back into the hall away from that blonde. "Thanks Al. I think I'm alright." she was glad that he was. "You're welcome." she gently told him with her hand rubbing his back a little for a second before she pulled up a seat for him to take. "I think you're the only person here that somewhat likes me." Alex laughed too. "You're a good guy, Wes. I do like you, and I think Andy likes you too.. she did stand up for you after all, right?" Alex had heard Andy talking to that blonde, but she didn't know exactly what was said with being preoccupied with her Fathers letter. "I promise, that on my watch!? no one will hurt you again." she softly told him, rubbing the top of his arm before taking a seat in-front of him. She gently cupped his face now with both of her hands, looking at the bruising that was beginning to surface. "That Girl is a monster. On a scale of one to Ten.. how much does it hurt?"

ImageAjax had been in his own world, but the second he heard "Hey..." he knew who it was, and looked up to her. "Hey.." It was nice of her to check on him, so he wasn't about to turn her away. "Everything ok? - You know," she had added before he could think of an answer. "You're cuter when you smile." Ajax couldn't help but smile now, and chuckled during her cute little giggles. He wanted to tell her, she was after all probably the second person to trust here after his little sister.. but their father didn't want anyone to know about the letter, or the key. Why it was a secret, he had no idea.. But he was going to find out everything soon. "Better? he asked because he was now smiling. He nudged her gently with his arm, and slid up the bench closer to her before draping his arm around her shoulders. "Everything's fine.. I'm just at some crossroads in my life. I can't say what dad sent us in a letter.. but he wants me to visit him, with Alex. I'm not sure I want to see him." Ajax didn't hate him; hate him, but he didn't exactly like him either. He still had resentment towards Zeus for abandoning him, and Alex. "He doesn't deserve a son after everything he's done. He left us."

He couldn't remember one single moment in his life where his Father was even there for them, it had been his mother, and her boyfriend who took care of them. His step father had his own son too, which Ajax treated like a little brother. He knew his mother had a good eye for nice, decent people. They were amazing, so Ajax didn't mind that they were joining the family.

Interacting With: Wes Preston



Before she could walk away Wes stopped her, handing the bottle back to her. "Thanks Doc. But I have my own pain killers." Melissa just barely caught herself from making a snappy remark. From the aggravated look on his face she decided she had already done enough when she punched him. Watching him walk off Melissa shrugged before turning away. Going back into the kitchen Melissa grabbing her cookie scoop and went back to her task of scooping the dough onto trays. The task, while tedious and time consuming, enabled her to slip away from reality. Her thoughts wandering she looked back at all the things that had happened since she had entered the kitchen and a frown tugged at the corners of her lips. ‘Great, all my friends are gone and my first day back I make an enemy out of more people than I even know…’ Placing the first two trays into the oven and setting a timer Melissa sighed and started on the next set. It was then that Melissa realized she had at least doubled the recipe, leaving what would be at least another six trays worth of cookie dough in the bowl. ‘Well, guess I won’t be escaping to my cabin soon after all…’
Getting to work Melissa let her thoughts wander once more and immediately they went back to the moment Wes had made the comment to her. ‘I seriously need to curb my temper… it wasn’t even that big of a deal…’ As her thoughts drifted back to her earlier actions she tried to keep herself from thinking of her time before Camp Athens but couldn’t help herself. As the suppressed memories surged to the surface Melissa dropped the bowl and the cookie scoop in her hands, both landing on the counter with a bang. As the impact sent the bowl rolling off the counter and to the floor with a louder bang cookie dough splattered all over the counter and floor. Flinching away from the sound she wrapped her arms around herself as silent tears spilled down her cheeks and she sat down on the floor heavily.

Interacting With: Mel



After a long hour of trying to find perfect recipes for requests from campers and staff Adrian had enough of work and wanted to play. He slapped the stack of papers in the first drawer of his desk and shut off his computer manually before getting up to walk out of his office, as he opened his door he heard a loud crash, making his ears ring. Adrian turned the corner ready to scream at whoever broke another bowl. However his lips shut tight as he watched Mel sitting on the floor holding herself, he clenched his fists as his heart literally broke seeing her cry. He noticed that she seemed to not notice his presence, Adrian took advantage of the situation and looked around the kitchen for a giant soup bowl, once he found it he placed it upside down on the ground silently moving to grab two spoons. He sat in front of the bowl, a few feet from her. He started lightly banging on the drum, in a sort of melodical way, before he started to sing "King by Years & Years" in an attempt to calm Mel down. He didn't watch her as he sung at first, instead he focused on his beat, however as he felt eyes on him he looked up and watched her, singing with more meaning.

Once the song came to an end he smiled at Mel and cocked his head to one side. "Feel better?" He asked. "Cause if not I could fly you around?" He asked, his wings twitched at the thought of doing something semi romantic. He thought of a movie he saw when he was younger about a tiny girl the size of a thumb and a fairy prince. "I could totally be some girl's fairy prince.... Feathered prince..."

Interacting With: Hades/Herself




Jennova nodded and watched her brother leave, thinking that sooner or later she'd have to go see her father, she grabbed her duffle bag and closed her eyes thinking of the underworld, she hated traveling this way because it got her sick but it was the fastest. Within seconds she was in her father's chambers. She looked around, feeling his presences. "Before you say anything, I wanted to apologize for saving the son of Zeus. It will not happen again. I was wondering if I could have a second chance." Jennova zoned out as her father started his usual bullshit as he did saying he thought she was smarter than how she acted and how she disappointed him. "I'm willing to end my relationship to make you happy." She interrupted him.

"No.. That's too easy for you. I have something more satisfying to my needs." Hades spoke from the shadows. "You will recruit as many as you possibly can to join my army." Jennova's jaw clenched. "Go" He spoke again, sending her back to Camp herself. She ended up back at her cabin. Jennova sighed as she walked in, throwing her bag on the floor. She paced her living room, thinking How the hell am I going to convince anyone to join Hades.. This is going to suck. Don't ask your brother for help. You fucked up, you fix it. You DO NOT need help. Jennova was having a hard time convincing herself she could do this. Or that she could do anything for that matter. Jennova went into her kitchen and grabbed a wine glass, pouring herself a glass of wine and going to sit by her pool in her small back deck.

Interacting With: David Hughson and Seraphina Antoniou


“She knows you’re new” David whispered to her and Narissa flinched and gave the woman a sheepish grin. “Oh yeah. Sorry.” Narissa noticed the woman had a perplexed look on her face and flinched a bit but hid it behind a bright smile. After a few moments, though it seemed a lot longer, the woman responded. “How nice of him.” The woman paused again and this time the pause in conversation was noticeable as she looked over at David. Despite this, after a few more moments of awkward silence the woman gave David a brief nod.

The moment passed and the woman’s attention returned once again to Narissa, her expression kind “Well, welcome to camp newbie. I’m Seraphina, one of the Camp Staff, daughter of Hera. If you need help later with anything, don’t be afraid to ask, but I do need to get these groceries out of the heat and help get lunch started for the ‘horde’ – so, I am sorry, I do need to run. Happy cabin hunting though, and if worse comes to worse you can always grab a Artemis or Hera cabin for the mean time until you're more comfortable with the camp before making a more permanent cabin decision.”
Narissa gave Seraphina a bright smile in response. “Thanks! It’s nice to meet you.” At the offer of an Artemis cabin Narissa giggled since that was exactly where David had just offered to bring her a few minutes ago and she nodded. “Thank you so much. Good luck with all the cooking!” With that Narissa turned to look at David, assuming Seraphina would be leaving to go put away groceries and cook lunch. “So, which way are we going?” As she spoke to him her smile became a bit less forced and more genuine, the expression reaching her eyes.

Interacting With: Adrian Warhol


Melissa stared straight ahead at nothing, not even noticing Adrian as he came into the kitchen. As he moved around the kitchen her arms tightened around herself, a trail of tears still going down her face. At first, when Adrian sat a few feet away from her and started to play the bowl like a drum, Melissa didn’t even notice but as soon as Adrian started singing her posture changed. As a spark of recognition entered her eyes Mel blinked a few times, slowly, before looking around herself. It took all of two seconds for her eyes to land on Adrian and immediately Melissa let her arms fall down, her hands landing in her lap.
Melissa almost jumped up but instead she focused on the guy near her, her eyes widening with unconcealed shock. Adrian and her had never been best of friends in fact, Melissa had often avoided him as to not have her baking obsession discovered. Yet, here he was, singing to her in his kitchen as she cried. As the thought entered her mind the song ended and Adrian spoke up. Feeling better? Cause if not I could fly you around? It was then that Melissa’s mind caught up to reality, causing her to snap into focus. Jumping up Melissa opened her mouth to snap at Adrian but then stopped, torn by his kindness.
Turning away from him Melissa swiped at her face quickly, trying to rub away the tears as she glared down at the counter top, which was spattered with cookie dough. In most cases she would have snapped at him or ignored him but after Adrian being so nice Melissa was thrown off. Her voice coming out barely above a whisper Melissa replied. “I’m fine. I just…” Melissa trailed off and looked around for an excuse to give him.
Seeing the bowl broken on the floor she pointed to it without looking back at him, knowing that she still had tear-stained cheeks and glassy eyes from crying. “I broke the bowl. I’m sorry. I’ll pick up the mess…”

After Narissa's multiple Thank yous', a Nice to meet you, a Good luck with all the cooking - Gods above, she could keep anyone on their toes apparently conversation wise - and Daniel's tight smile and nod of goodbye; Seraphina was finally 'free'. "I'll see you both later then," She hummed softly in simple farewell, and got on the move again... It did not take long, walking at an even pace and no one else on the trail to tell similar morning greeting's too, to reach the main building that housed the offices of the Camp Staff, the kitchens, and the 'mess hall' for the camp's meal times. It took far longer, however, after ignoring the light ache of her lower back to navigate the stairs up through the doors into the cafeteria and then into the kitchen, to move herself from her stunned frozen step across the boundary line as she observed the mess before her. ImageCookie dough had painted itself across a counter, cupboards, and floor tiles, and a shattered glass or plastic bowl lay in pieces under foot. Adrian already seemed to be handling it well enough, without need for intervention. Melissa seemed well, except for the faint tear tracks lining her cheeks, and was already offering to clean up her mess. So, Seraphina breathed an uneasy but relieved sigh, announcing her presence at the threshold with a genuine but gentle smile. "G'morning; Adrian, Melissa." She said lightly, her lips only slightly pursed. Before cautiously moving forward into the kitchen, watching her step, as she navigated across the debris with silent purpose to the large pantry to pile half of her bags there which consisted of non-perishables and placed the other half of perishables of meat or fresh vegetables/fruit unto a 'cleaner' corner of the counter until properly separated, divided, or cut up, and placed into refrigeration. She set herself to work, quietly putting things away into the organized pantry, quickly and efficiently - taking care to keep her muted curses about her height to a minimum, whenever she had to stretch to put something away.

OOC::|| @ UsernameGoesHere,
I don’t know if you still have Elsa Regions walking around the lake, but this is a response with Ilias’ as if she was still was.
Feel free to ignore, of course, if she has already finished her walk and has headed to the training grounds. Thank you~!

Ilias had a good morning so for, since, finally, reaching the ground. Orion and him had spent some time, ‘swimming’ in the shallows of the lakeshore nearby his mother’s cabin, before the pegasi was just too exhausted from the long journey they’d taken to continue going out to fetch the child whenever he’d gotten out into deeper water. The big black snorted, nudging gently at the small of the boy’s back, to continue moving him along – out of the swallow water, and unto the soft pebbled shore-line. Instead of pouting or causing a fuss, the boy had obliged. Upon reaching the dry shoreline, Orion had lied down, curling his limbs tightly underneath him but left his wings stretched out. Ilias observed with bright eyes, thoughtfully. "Scrub?” He finally gurgled, lake water still running down his chin from his soaked hair and hat. Orion flicked his ears in response, and it was an answer enough as the young boy wandered diligently away towards an old ice-chest nearby, and after cracking it open revealed a hearty handful of water toys, a first aid kit, and a bottles of what was probably sunscreen (but for him, it was close enough to shampoo for his needs). Ilias returned to the pegasi, with a sand castle bucket that he paused momentarily to fill with lake water and a bottle of ‘shampoo’ in hand, and set himself to work. If Orion had been any other color than black, Ilias might have accidentally dyed him a pinkish hue from using sunscreen as a shampoo. Regardless, the pegasi enjoyed the attention, snoozing peacefully and only opening a lazy yet watchful eye whenever Ilias left to get more water to wash him off… On one such trip, returning back to Orion, he noticed an approaching figure walking alongside the lake-shore. ImageIt wasn't anyone he immediately recognized from afar, or had been introduced to by his mother in the past weeks of her travels greeting new demigod families attending the Camp or one of the dourer funerals; but manners had been instilled, more or less (the terrible twos' had been rough, no doubt), in him by Seraphina' and so - A meaty fingered fist reached up to grasp his soggy hat and wave it a few times before plopping it back unto his dark mop, before calling out in greeting, "'Ello!" A small, crooked but friendly grin resting on his mouth.

Interacting With: Mel



As Adrian's song ended he stood, picking up the bowls he had taken down to play music on. He carefully put them back where he had found them and moved to clean the broken glass that Mel had said she was going to clean up. "No worries, darling." He spoke in a whisper. He looked at the gue of dough on the counter and then back up at her. "Why don't you finish what you have and then take the rest of the day off? I won't tell a soul." He smiled at her as he filled himself a glass of water and slowly drank, staring at her.

Adrian sat on a stool next to the table and watched Mel carefully. He knew she wasn't in the best conditions and he wanted to make sure she was going to be okay. "Or you could tell me what to do and I'll finish it." He suggested cocking his head to one side. Adrian looked to his feet as he started popping the cracks in his finger. Finger by finger, slowly as he could to make some kind of sound in the room around him. Adrian looked up when Seraphina walked into the kitchen , he nodded up at her, not realizing right away who she was but then standing up, knocking over his stool in the progress. "Sera! It's been a while!" He said as he wrapped his arms around her and gave her a big warm hug.

Interacting With: ...




Everything that was running through Jennova's head was a bit too much, she grasped the wine glass in her hand as she thought of how her life was about to fall apart. Evil spelled backwards was Live, however in all the stupid stories the heros always won, which meant she would die trying to win or she would win. If she played her cards right however, she could make Hades happy and just disappear. He wanted an army, so Jennova would give him an army. At whatever the cost was, however she would be very careful to trust certain people. She knew the Zeus offsprings were now her enemy. It didn't matter that she jumped in front of a blade for Ajax, he didn't care about her. Alex didn't care either, however no matter what happened in the past, nothing could change her destiny.

As Jennova thought of the people she truly cared about she grasped the wine bottle closely. Dave... Clare... Lilas... Adrian... Toby. Suddenly the wine bottle broke into pieces in her hand, however the woman didn't flinch, didn't drop the cup pieces, however the end of her glass fell to the ground, pieces falling into her pool. Warm liquid formed in her hand as she stared off into a distance, wondering what she was going to do about all those people she did care about. Would they join her? Did she even have friends or was she truly just the villain in everyone's eyes. Jennova looked down at the water, seeing her own reflection her heart broke into a million pieces. "You are a pathetic excuse of a person. Your death will be painful and slow." She whispered to the person staring back at her.

Melissa moved to go get a sponge and some other things to clean up the mess with as Adrian responded. "No worries, darling." Coming back with the stuff to clean up the mess Melissa started by pulling the trashcan over, starting to scoop up the splattered cookie dough and toss it into the garbage. "Why don't you finish what you have and then take the rest of the day off? I won't tell a soul. Or you could tell me what to do and I'll finish it." Melissa stopped and stared at him for a second a bit shocked but before she could answer the timer for the oven went off and she rose, grabbed oven mits and took out the two trays. Placing them on a clean counter Melissa grabbed the other two cookie trays she had finished before her freak out and put them in, setting the time once again. Turning back to Adrian, who had started to crack his knuckles, Melissa went to respond but Seraphina walked into the kitchen and she stopped. "G'morning; Adrian, Melissa." As Melissa wondered how long Sera had been standing there Adrian jumped from his stool, knocking it over, as he went to give her a hug. "Sera! It's been a while!" Both of them now in the pantry Melissa swiped away the remaining tears on her face and picked up Adrian's stool before returning to picking up her mess in silence.

Narissa didn't notice the other person until she had taken another few steps into the cabin. She was still staring up at the staircase and tree in amazement when the other demi-god spoke. "Well hello there." Jumping a bit Narissa's eyes flew to the other person in the room and she took a step back. Seeing the male shirtless with a toothbrush in hand and a smirk on his face, Narissa chuckled a bit, even as she looked him over appreciatively. Then, seeming to remember where she was and what she was doing she winced and gave him a sheepish smile. "I'm guessing this is your cabin?" She asked, taking another step back so that she was closer to the door. 'Good job Narissa, you managed to walk into the one cabin that was occupied. Hopefully he's not the type to freak out about it... he seems laid back enough...' Shaking her head, Narissa focused her attention back on the other person in the room.

Seraphina fully expected to have a quick, quiet moment, finishing placing the last few items within the pantry shelves, while Adrian spoke with Melissa about offering to help finish the cleaning and cooking for her – accompanied with the familiar sounds of the squeaking of the hinges of the oven door being opened and closed as batches of finished and waiting to be cooked cookies were exchanged. However, the mighty crash, from Adrian’s wooden stool being knocked over in some apparent rush, was enough to make her flinch with a sharp jerk of her shoulders. Gods above, what in the world! She paused momentarily, to peer warily, but inquisitively into the kitchen – only to be greeted with Adrian’s examination of “Sera! It’s been a while!” before being ‘swallowed’ (to be fair, he was at the very least a foot taller, and certainly more heftier than she was or would ever be) in one of his big, warm hugs, with an indignant, muffled, “Oh!

ImageAll though… It’d been a while? Well, Seraphina had only officially been gone two weeks, meeting and greeting the families of new demigods, making sure they’d be arriving in good order, and attending the latest funeral – which had made her a day late to the official opening of the summer camp. No, would be the correct, technical answer; but since the pair were a part of the small handful that tended to spend all year at the campgrounds’ – two weeks was a long time, especially for demigods, or old friends for that matter. So, she let the hug last a little longer than she normally would have, or had the patience for in dispelling her strong distaste of tight, dark, and/or confining spaces. Such things were hard to come by, even on good days…

Sera pulled back, finally free with a soft smile, "Ari, you do know in the interest of breathing, you really shouldn't squeeze so tightly when hugging?" She chided, gently; her tone of voice echoing the unsaid words of being thankful to be 'home' again and it was good to see him too - trusting he'd understand the meaning well enough. "Now shoo," She started lightly, waving the fingers of one hand towards him in a brushing away gesture, her friendly smile undiminished. "This pantry really isn't meant for this, and I've got groceries to finish putting away - before, I'll take lunch duty?" She offered, as it was only fair for her turn to begin since he'd already gotten most of 4-meals ready for the camp since it started already. Seraphina's warm eyes left his momentarily, to glance around him at Melissa silent but diligently still cleaning up the mess, she spared her a thankful and apologetic glance. The girl had had a rough life, and physical contact (especially from guys') was still a giant NO for the daughter of Ares - so Sera didn't want to upset Melissa with anymore unnecessary contact (even not directed towards her - bless Adrian's heart of course, but he did look awful bear-like when hugging), and felt a little remorseful exposing her to it.

Ilias' small, crooked but friendly grin, had since faded into an annoyed frown as the approaching figure didn't acknowledge him, his greeting hello, or the waving of his soggy hat. Manners may have been instilled in him by his mother, and the rough terrible twos' were over with, but it still did not mean he liked to be paid no attention to. Before he could rattle off a piece of his mind or some lackluster insult, Orion's soft snort grabbed his attention first as the black pegasi pulled himself up to stand with a bobbing head in the direction of the kitchens, and food, and Mum... "Okay, horsey." He hummed, successfully distracted. Before reaching out to cling to the Pegasi's tail, that yanked him forward as Orion lead the way back up the gentle slope, passing his mother's and his own cabin, on a common camp track, and headed towards the kitchens as the light began to fade from the sky and the spitting of rain from above seemed to go away as quickly as it had come.

It had been a long afternoon, after Adrian’s departure from the kitchen, busy with finishing stocking the panty, then chopping up the fresher items for refrigerator on the spare clean counter from the earlier cookie dough incident, and now finishing up an outdoor meal at the campfire tonight on her side of the kitchen – while Melissa finished up the cookie baking on the other side... ImageIt was a welcome distraction when Ilias finally appeared from his adventures ‘swimming’ in the lake, but unwelcoming in turn as Seraphina absently reached down to pick him up in greeting, only to freeze in instinctive motherly horror at the contact of wet, slime, and the strong odor of sunscreen, at the touch of her finger-tips. “You didn’t…” She muttered in fond exasperation, as Ilias piped up cheerfully in turn, “No!” “Not helping… Come on you,” Seraphina sighed, taking his hand to guide him through the kitchens and into the camp staff offices beyond. Upon entering her own office, she pulled open the bottom drawer of her desk, already prepared for such a situation with clothes for Ilias’ stuffed in it – she helped him get cleaned up and dressed in new, and more importantly DRY clothing, before returning to the kitchen to begin preparing items for travel from the kitchen to campfire with the boy hot on her heels... Eventually it was nearly time, with the sky growing dark as the sun started to pull lower on the horizon – and the skyline was decorated in sullen shades of purple and orange. Seraphina was more or less ready to go, but with Ilias underfoot wasn’t helping things move any more smoothly – so she grabbed a small basket already stuffed with rolls, that could handle the less than gentle care a three year-old might give them, before putting it into his meaty hands. ImageIlias, darling, here... Hold it this way, Thank you. Could you take that to campfire tables? Please, it’ll be your job, okay?” “Job? Ok, yes, mummy.” Ilias exuberantly finished as he departed the kitchens, which may or not have also made a chorus of heavy thumps down the stairway – causing her to wince, before calling out gentle, “Do be careful, and Orion…” A distant nicker sounded off in response, Thank the gods she could trust the winged horse to get her son and the rolls headed in the right direction... As the began to load up her own arms, which looking at it all she did not doubt the need to return for a second trip, unless - she spared a glance to her thus-far silent cooking / baking companion with a soft smile, that was one-part apologetic for Ilias' intrusion earlier. "Hey, Melissa, are you headed to the campfire tonight?"

#D63B71 & Teal for thoughts.


"Hey..." Alex heard, causing her to look up. Andy walked to her, then bumped her shoulder into her, causing her to chuckle softly. "They're just guys." She leaned in to whisper softly, "Dress cute and he won't be able to ignore you even if he tried." Andy smiled towards Alex and gave her a wave before she jogged off towards her cabin. Alex was smiling too. She was right, and the thought of his face looking at her in the outfit would be picture perfect to her. Girls got major silly when it came to boys, so she got that perky little her back onto her feet before heading to her cabin. Hopefully her brother was in a good mood, because she didn't want him being the party pooper.

She had just gotten through the door, and placed her keys back into her pocket before looking towards her brother who had called out to her from hearing the front door. He had his towel around him still for now. "You're going to actually have fun tonight, right? because I want at least one normal stress free day. I don't fancy babysitting my big brother."

"You're going to actually have fun tonight, right? because I want at least one normal stress free day. I don't fancy babysitting my big brother." Ajax laughed because he knew exactly what she was on about. One time he had gotten drunk back at home, and Alex had to sit with him all night due to him drinking a little too much, but he was threatening to scale the roof naked, and knock on their neighbors doors. She couldn't blame him for celebrating with his friends like that, because that was the day he graduated from High school. It was the happiest day of his life as he hated it.. even if he was the most popular guy there.

"Al, I'm older now. I was young and stupid back then." He reminded her. "I know. Still funny though." they laughed and headed off to their rooms to get dressed.
