D E C O R U S

h e i g h t x // x1.63m / 5'4"

w e i g h t x // x48kg / 106lbs

h a i r x // xEmery tends to keep her hair at shoulder length; a deep walnut streaked through with copper in the light, it's wavy and often in a state of careful disarray. Its length was a recent decision, as up to about a year ago she had it down to her collarbones, pinned back so as to frame her face. Its current length is enough for her to keep it loose.

e y e s x // xHer eyes are large, and often a little puffy with how little she sleeps. They're a piercing crystal blue, always watching, assessing...waiting.

o d d i t i e s x // xHer knees are dark with the faded scars of an active childhood, and a thin white scar crosses her right upper arm. She sports lobe piercings on both ears and a helix piercing on her left ear.

a p p e a r a n c e x // xEmery's appearance is deceiving of the type of person she is. With a heart-shaped face and large eyes that give her a perpetual deer-in-the-headlights look, she looks every inch the southern belle she was brought up to be, if you overlook the determined set to her jaw. She smiles rarely, but when she does it is at first hesitant, then radiant, a true sign of her trust. Her dressing is versatile, adapted to each necessity - sweet dresses and sweater-and-jeans are her particular favourites.

a n i m a l x s h a p e s h i f t i n g x // x Children of Artemis, the goddess of the hunt, are able to transmogrify into animals. Through no lack of experimentation on her part, Emery has found a preference for the golden eagle and the leopard seal forms. She is also able to speak to animals in both her human and animal forms.

h e a l i n g x // x She is able to heal animals and humans, an ability that can be harnessed only while she is in human form.

e n h a n c e d x s e n s e s x // x What could rightly be termed as heightened animal instinct, she is in tune with her surroundings and easily aware of any danger around her. This is aided by her enhanced senses of sight, smell, and hearing.


F O R T I T U D O
xxxxxxxxxxxxโ€ข x s t r e n g t h x โ€ข x \ หˆ s t r e ล‹ ( k ) t h \ x โ€ข


h u n t i n g x // x She possess incredible hunting skill, both inherited from her parent deity and learned from the family members that she's lived with over the course of her life. She never seems to tire when on the hunt, able to follow the tracks of her prey over long distances for periods of time, a one-man Terminator force of her own.

w e a p o n r y x // x She is skilled in her use of hunting knives, guns, and the bow and arrow.

t a c t i c i a n x // x She sees the future just as well as any chess grandmaster does; able to anticipate her targets' actions and come up with a plan on the spot to gain her quarry, adapting her plans as the situation calls for it.


I N F I R M I T A T E
xxxxxxxxxxxxโ€ข x w e a k n e s s x โ€ข x \ หˆ w ฤ“ k - n ษ™ s \ x โ€ข


c o n f i d e n c e x // x Even as a newly-discovered demigod, Emery has always been aware of her own capabilities, to the point where sometimes her own confidence blinds her to lesser-anticipated occurrences.

s u b t l e t y x // x Even as a born-and-bred Southern belle, wiles were never her strong part. Any task that requires her to adopt a different approach aside from going directly for her target is a task that requires another's help.

p r i d e x // x On the heels of her confidence, Emery hates to admit defeat, and would willingly push on until she's at the end of her tether to admit that she was wrong.


M E T U M
xxxxxxxxxxxxโ€ข x f e a r x โ€ข x \ หˆ f i r \ x โ€ข


c o m m i t m e n t x // x Having been moved around from household to household in her formative years, she doesn't know what it's like to settle down permanently and isn't sure she wants to anchor herself down like that.

d e a t h x // x She's not stupid, she knows the stories. Lives in Greek mythology have never been less fleeting than the breath of a butterfly's wings, and while she's certainly hunted her fair share of animals she fears looking death in the eye, always one to turn away just as her prey breathes its last. She fears being responsible for another human's death, or worse, her own life being snuffed out before she's had something to do with it.

g o d x // x Listen, this is ridiculous considering she's the daughter of one - but there's something about growing up in a place where preachers promise Hell on a weekly basis that gets into a person's brain. She tries not to think about it.

"Identity was partly heritage, partly upbringing, but mostly the choices you make in life." This quote largely describes Emery's personality - for any other person, her history might have created a jumble of half-formed desires and motivations, a chimera of inherited traits barely hanging on to their existence; but not Emery. Quite the opposite, in fact, because she's learned clearly who she is and what she wants, and by god if this child of Artemis isn't going to fly as straight as any arrow fired by the legendary hunter herself.

She's always calm and collected to the best of her abilities, trusting that she's in control of her situation. She never hurries, always seeming to be where she needs to at exactly the right time. Even in times of great stress, she fights to be composed, focusing her energy on what needs to be done and how she can achieve it. She isn't confident to the point of cockiness, but enough to make her a good leader and strategist.

For Emery, each day is another day dedicated to working towards a goal. No matter what that goal is - to better herself, to provide for her loved ones, or even just to make a friend - she pushes through each task to achieve her goals. She knows what she likes and dislikes, what she wants for herself and what she wants for others, though sometimes this affects the way she sees things into a sort of tunnel vision, herself an immovable rock until the goal is reached. She would be nothing without a purpose, although this isn't a realisation she's come to yet.

Though she's largely independent and prefers to work on her own, Emery tries to work well with others, knowing that her allies are important too. Though she isn't the best at taking orders, she's good at offering support to those who need it from her. Her loyalty to those who offer her the same is admirable, as she's ready to fight for those she loves the same way she'd fight for herself.

Every plan is subject to change, and she is no different. A hunter by nature, she's learned to adapt herself to the nature of her targets, adapting on the spot to counter evasive measures. Similarly, as someone who's been shuttled from state to state for the better part of her eighteen years, she's learned to adapt herself to different social situations in order to stay afloat.

H I S T O R I A R U M


What do Maryland, Mississippi, Oregon, Colorado, Alaska, and Louisiana have in common with each other? They've all served as home to one Emery St. John.

Born in the town of Thurmont, Maryland, Emery grew up first in the care of her father. Hadley St. John was a gentle man who owned a business resembling something of a zoo, if a zoo could be run out of a man's front yard and consisted of various animals that were often found by Hadley in the woodlands, hurt by hunters out of season or just by their own foolishness. He'd nurse them back to health and raise them in his garage, devoting his time to looking after them despite the cost of running such a zoo.

Hadley had neither time nor interest in his life for women, and although more than a few young ladies tried to court him when he was in his youth, he always turned them down. But there was one lady he couldn't resist - Artemis. She was powerful and beautiful and utterly in love with the way he handled animals, and she was the one woman Hadley St. John never turned away.

He knew Emery wasn't normal from the moment she was delivered to him. Even as an infant she barely slept, always watching him tend to his work with her blue, blue eyes. Way before he would have allowed any other child to touch his charges she was already joining him, soothing the most terrified animals, helping to tend to the sick and injured ones. And he'd always notice the way their injuries seemed to melt away under her tiny hands.

Hadley St. John knew a lot of things, and he was no less ignorant to the fact that he was dying. Something was eating away at his insides, something even Emery couldn't heal. And when the time came, he kissed his baby girl goodbye one last time, and sent her off to Mississippi to live with her grandmother while he set his animals free and checked himself into hospital to await his death.

Sarah Wyman, a tough old lady in her seventies by the time Emery reached her, wasted no time in teaching the child the only things she knew. Born and raised as a southern belle herself, Sarah read in the last letter from her son of her granddaughter's godly heritage, and decided that when the time came for Emery to join her kind she would go as a proper young lady. She taught Emery how to hunt, how to fend for herself, and how to flutter her eyelashes and laugh at the jokes dull but well-meaning men cracked.

But like her son, Sarah wasn't meant to spend long with the girl. Near the end of a long and terrible battle with pneumonia she handed Emery an address written on a piece of paper and whatever cash she could pull together, and packed her away to a cousin living in Colorado.

From then on it was one family after the other, from cousin to uncle to sister to son, all doing what they could based on Hadley and Sarah's final wishes in the letters they'd sent along with the child. All her guardians meant well, but how could anyone raise a god's child for them? Year after year after year, Emery was shuttled around to a new house, and she quickly learned to adapt to each different living situation. Along the way she picked up her different abilities as a demigod, including animal shapeshifting, settling for two shapes that she was most comfortable with.

Eventually Artemis herself came to Emery, insistent on sending her to a camp where others like her resided, protected from the dangers that a child of the gods faced. Eager to find somewhere she could mix with her people, Emery agreed, and once again packed up, heading for Camp Athens.

Image Alex had never been to one single party before she came to Camp Athens. Their mother never allowed her to leave the house. Last years had been a blast, but this year was going to be different. Alex sat quietly as her brother took the chair across from her. "Are you okay?" He watched her as she managed to turn her attention to him. "..don't tell me it's nothing. When some of the campers left for the year, others stayed here. You didn't. You left me. Where did you go?"

Alex shook her head. "I'm fine. This isn't about when I left. Then, I just needed to be by myself."

"You know it's dangerous out there. Especially by yourself. Has Mason said something to you again? is that why you left?"
"No."
"Okay, so what's wrong now? Did someone else say something to you?"
"No!" she snapped.
"Al..."
Image "Just leave it alone, okay? Don't ask me any more questions." she stood up angrily. "Please." she added. It wasn't like her to shut him off without talking to him. He nodded once, his eyes looking down as he did. She gave him a glare before walking silently passed him. Maybe she shouldn't have come back to camp this year since everyone already thought she was a murderer. No one would possibly miss her, would they? Everything in her life had already turned upside down because of a stupid feud between two Gods. They just couldn't let things stay in the past.

Image He looked up, watching her head into her room. Hopefully, the party would make her feel better. Being around Duke and Wes always brought a smile to her face. Especially Duke. Oh, Ajax had noticed the way his little sister looked at his best friend. Was she acting like this because of him? Duke had recently found out about his little sister, and Alex had seen them together a couple of times without knowing who she is. Was she jealous? the corners of Ajax's lips began to lift upwards, forming a large smile as he looked away and hung his head. Laughing. He had never known her to be jealous, not even once, or she just managed to hide it well. Daniel had a new girl around him before he passed, but Alex didn't seem to batter an eye. He could go in there and tell her about Duke's sister, but maybe it would be way more entertaining for her to find out from Duke himself.

Ajax headed out the second he was dressed, but first grabbing his rucksack which sat near the front door. He decided to wear something casual: Party Outfit. As promised, he arrived a bit early with the music he had downloaded the night before on his computer. It was all taking place down near the beach again where a large campfire was sitting in the middle ready to be lit. Around it at a good safe distance sat four large log benches for everyone to chill out around the flames. The staff members were the ones hosting it all, so they were cooking on the BBQ tonight. They had containers filled with ice where the beer bottles chilled, and quite the buffet on a long table so people could help themselves to sandwiches, pizza, sausage rolls and every other party food displayed. The BBQ would be serving burgers and hot dogs with or without onions. A large variety for everyone to say the least.

Theo stared at himself in the mirror for a moment, letting the events of the past several months roll through his mind. A year ago he was a nomad without a purpose who just so happened to be extra ordinary thanks to his godly parentage. Things had certainly changed. Now, he was a trained warrior, survivor, and most recently a big brother. When Ajax told him that another Artemis child was coming to camp, Theo pressed him for more information. It didn't take him long to hunt Emery down. He introduced himself as her brother, and, after a period of initial skepticism and shock, the two became close very quickly. Having blood to protect change Theo's outlook on things. Camp Athens was now his home. His friends and purpose were already there. Those bonds had only strengthened post war as Theo popped in and out of camp in its offseason. Now his family was at camp too. Theo smiled as he thought about finally finding somewhere that he belonged.

He turned on his heels to leave his bathroom, and walked and approached his closet with an outfit already in mind. Theo was excited for the party as he knew how great a Camp Athens party could get. He thought it would be a good way to knock down some of the walls between the old guard and the litany of new campers. Theo had gone out of his way to befriend a few already. He had budding friendships with people like Dimitri, Nik, and Sylas. Then there was the Poseidon daughter that he had yet to talk to. Her and Emmy had made fast friends, and Theo was intent on introducing himself at the party. Theo wore a light grey shirt, a denim button up, with blue jeans, old tennis shoes, and a hat. He had come to like hats more and more recently, mostly because he had gotten so lazy in fixing his hair.

Before exiting his cabin he grabbed his North Face backpack and two bottles of his favorite liquor, Fireball whiskey. He stuffed them in the bag along with several plastic shot glasses. Theo knew one could never be over prepared for a party. He started his descent down the hill through the forest, only stopping outside Emmy's cabin to give her a loud whistle and a quick "Let's go! I'll see you down there. Shots on me!" Theo laughed as he kept on his way, unsure if offering his younger sister shots at a party full of young male demigods with over confidence syndrome was the most brotherly idea. He knew Emmy could handle herself though. Still, he would have to keep an eye on her and make sure she didn't drink too much.

Theo arrived at the party fairly early. There were only a handful of people there. He surveyed the group, noticing Mason and Andy off in the distance by the shore. He never had been able to figure out Andy's soft spot for Mason. Honestly, Theo just wasn't a big fan. He smiled and waved as he trotted past a group of new campers that included Nik and the pretty redheaded daughter of Poseidon. Theo made a mental note to make his way back over there later. Wes, Trinity, and Alex. Theo figured they were all probably together. Finally, he made his way over to Ajax who was standing by the tables of food taking in the first sparks of the party. Theo approached with a smirk on his face. Him and Ajax had gotten closer since the war, and he knew they had a mutual trust. "You good bro?" Theo cocked his head sideways with a half playful half serious look. "Looks to me like you need a shot," he said as he laughed while pulling his backpack off of his shoulder and reaching for the contents inside.

In an oddly relaxed manner that evening, Emery was lounging on her bed, reading a book - one of the volumes of old fairytales some great-aunt or other had gifted to her when she was much younger. Shouts and laughter drifted in through the window that she'd opened just a crack, indicators that the party had already begun to swing into gear. Emery figured she'd finish this chapter, get dressed, and head down to join the rest.

Ten minutes later, she slipped a bookmark between the pages and left the tome sitting on her nightstand, pulling out clothes from her wardrobe. She lingered briefly on a dress, then shoved it aside - too many layers, that close to the fire she'd sweat through it and ruin the entire thing. She could almost hear Grandma tutting in the back of her mind.

Emery eventually settled on a sweater, picking a skirt to match it. A slight breeze slipped into the room while she was dressing, dancing around her legs and making gooseflesh prickle, so she pulled a pair of socks on just for good measure.

A loud whistle sounded right outside the cabin, evidently meant to draw her attention. Emery pushed the window open, leaning out of it to call to Theo. "I'll be right down! Don't finish it without me." Grandma's voice resurfaced again, this time a warning about drinking too much, but Emery shrugged it off. She could handle her alcohol.

She slipped her feet into a pair of worn oxfords and hurried out of her cabin, following the path down to the fire. Most of the students were milling around already, talking to each other. Emery spotted Gwendolyn and raised a hand, waving at her - the unspoken promise of I'll come talk to you later - and turned her attention to the food, filling her plate with a little bit of everything that looked interesting. To her surprise, by the time she reached the other end of the tables Theo was there, talking to Ajax.

"Ajax, hi. Theo, I believe you promised me alcohol?"

"Should I bother going to the party?" Ji-hyun mumbled, staring into his mug at the strong tea he'd just brewed. Taking a deep breath, he tilted his head back and downed the warm drink, then swirled the remaining liquid and leaves at the bottom and drained the mug, turning it this way and that to try to make sense of the leaves inside.

Turned this way, it could be a fire, which would probably mean yes. But turned the other way...it looked like a mountain, which meant no. "Can you please give me a straight answer?"

As if on cue, his phone lit up and began buzzing wildly, the alarm that he'd set earlier to remind himself to get ready going off. He supposed that could be a sign of its own. Which meant yes, he should go.

Sighing, Ji-hyun set the mug down and got to his feet, glancing around as if the clothes he was going to wear would magically fly out of his closet. No such luck. "Hey, will anyone mind if I turn up in sweatpants?" he turned back to the mug and posed another question. The leaves' arrangement didn't change, but someone outside laughed, high and shrill, and he resigned himself to his fate. He would have to change.

Having gotten dressed, Ji-hyun left the cabin and wandered towards the other cabins. It would be a sad party if he had to go alone. "Seung-min! Are you coming?"

Ji-hyun wasn't unfit by any means, but by the time he reached the cabin the uphill climb had him breathing a little heavily. He knocked on the door. "Why the hell are your cabins so far away? And you can teleport!" he recalled, a little indignantly. "Shouldn't you be faster than I am? And they say I'm lazy? Get your butt out here!"

Once Alex had arrived, the party was looking so much better than she thought it would. Everyone had arrived - new, and old. It's always nice to have new faces. Everywhere she looked there were people talking, laughing, or just those enjoying the warmness from the fire as they tucked into some delicious looking hot dogs with cooked onions almost spilling over the sides of the warm bun. As nice as it looked, Alex wasn't hungry.

She could see her brother with Theo, and then a girl she hadn't seen before. Was that Theo's sister?

Alex made her way over to them, catching Emery's words about Theo owing her a drink. "You can get me one too, Thee." she winked at him whilst taking a seat by her brother for the time being, then smiled towards Emery while leaning her arms flat on the bar they were surrounding. She glanced over her shoulder and caught sight of Duke sitting with one of the new girls. Immediately questions about it popped into her head. Did he like her? did she like him? who was her Godly parent? Alex quickly looked away. It was none of her business anyway since she and Duke weren't dating.

But the thought of him being with anyone really got to her. Still, she couldn't stop him even if she wanted to.

Ajax handed Alex a glass, then poured some of his beer into it for her, just to keep her happy until Theo got the drinks in for the two girls. "Just don't get too drunk." Ajax whispered as he leaned in towards her slightly, making sure that she heard him. Alex nodded.

Getting drunk was fun, but to the point of not knowing your own name was just pointless. What was the point in having a night out if you don't remember it the next day? just seems like a waste of time.

Once Theo had the shots, Ajax took the drink and knocked it back like water, but he didn't realize how strong it was until it hit the back of his throat, causing him to choke a little. He smiled as he held it down, raising his cup to Theo as thanks. "Cheers." he coughed once more and laughed.

Ajax smiled to Emery as she said his name, giving her a nod to greet her, right before she spoke to Theo about him owing her a drink. Not long after that, his little sister had appeared out of nowhere. She seemed happier now that she was here, and a lot calmer than earlier.

As Ajax grabbed himself another drink, a bottle this time, he looked across to where Mason was with Andy. Ajax knew they had become good friends since last year, but he still felt wary of Mason. Andy had her freedom to be friends with whoever she wanted, even if that was with people Ajax didn't like so much. He couldn't control her.

Ajax turned his attention back to the group, directing his question to Emery. "So.. what do you think of Camp Athens so far? it's okay, you can be honest. If you find it shit? you can tell me." Alex chuckled in the background.
"I honestly didn't like this place at first, I mean... it's a gorgeous place, but, it wasn't home. That changed. Now it feels like home." as Ajax carried on to question Emery, Alex hopped off the stool she had sat on and wandered over to the food table with now beginning to feel hungry. She filled her plate with small triangle sandwiches and some salad for now.

"You know, you're lucky I like you. And if any environmentalist tries to have a go why there's a cigarette in the water, I'm throwing you under the bus."

"Don't think I won't drag you down with me," Andy said, pointing her index finger at him accusingly. She slipped her hands into her pockets as they walked towards the main hub of the party.

"I was here earlier than you, on the beach, everyone's seen my face or back at least, doesn't that count as attendance?"

"Of course it does," Andy mused, playfully bumping her shoulder against Mason's. "But, if I have to struggle through this party... So, do you."

Andy sighed softly as they got closer to the fire, glancing at all the faces familiar and new. Her gaze drifted over towards Mason, witnessing a menacing smirk on his lips. She did a double take before he spoke. "What game is it going to be tonight? Another truth or dare? Spin the bottle?" He then started shimming his shoulders.

Andy laughs, raising her hands to cover her mouth as she watches him. "I think I'm going to stay away from the whole game situation." She didn't know if she could handle another game of truth or dare. Not that it was bad last year. She could do any dare people wanted, but she wasn't feeling the need to be utterly truthful. And spin the bottle isn't a game for someone in a relationship... Not if she wanted to keep it anyways.

It seemed that Mason's whole playful demeanor faded almost instantly. Andy's gaze followed his, which was focused on Ajax. She sighed softly, glancing down at her feet. She wasn't going to say anything. Mason had every reason to hate Ajax, especially Alex. A bump from his shoulder got her attention, causing Andy to look over at him. "I'll behave and stay right here. You know, if you want to be a real girl and talk and socialize."

Andy smiled slightly. "When have I ever been a real girl?" She raised a hand up to scratch her head, before running her fingers through her hair. "But I do need a drink," she said, tapping her nose with her index finger and then pointed towards the drinks. "You should socialize... You might make more friends." She bumped him with her hip before heading towards the bar. "Just don't forget who your best friend is," Andy teased, calling back towards him over her shoulder.

As she walked towards the bar, Andy conjured a shot in her right hand. She downed it as she made her way around the fire. She didn't want to interrupt the conversations, so moved to stand behind Ajax. Andy grabbed herself a beer, popping it open and taking a drink. She overheard Ajax talking to Emery. As he talked to her, Andy made funny faces, playfully mocking him towards Emery while he couldn't see.

Wes quickly pivoted around when he heard someone coming up the porch. โ€œJust for old time's sake I guess. Because you know, I don't actually like your company.โ€ He chuckled, and as he leaned in to kiss her cheek he was met by her shirt. โ€œDoes that smell?โ€ Wes held his breath instead of attempting to not cringe at Trinity's sweaty shirt. She then opened the door, waving him into her cabin.

"I don't know... Shoving a ripe sweaty shirt in a guy's face is a quick way to show you don't like his company," Wes teased as he slowly entered her cabin.

โ€œYou got your boardies? Board shorts?โ€ she asked him before disappearing back into her room.

Wes looked down at his legs, then back towards her bedroom door. "Didn't know I was going to be thrown into the ocean." He chuckled, tugging at his jeans slightly. "I have boxers on if the need to swim is aroused."

After a moment or two, Trinity came back out and smiled towards him. Wes couldn't help but smile back. She was beautiful just the way she was. Not like how the other girls tried to always look nice, but in her own element. He liked her just the way she was, true authentic Trinity. โ€œNow we can go.โ€

Wes held the door open for her, before following her down the porch. As they started walking, he draped his left arm over her shoulders. He wasn't in any rush to get to the party. Not that he doesn't like parties but he also liked the time just with Trinity. Call him selfish, but it's true.

โ€œYou know, we can make you a non-loser. All you'd have to do is beat me in an arm wrestle.โ€

"Oh man, Ken Doll has been upgraded to loser." Wes chuckled, lightly bumping his hip against Trinity. "I don't know if the nicknames could get much better than that."

โ€œI remember, you specifically said, 'I'd wrestle with you any day' โ€

Wes sighed softly as he let out a weak laugh. "Pretty sure that was old asshole Wes who said that." He raised his hand a little, playfully flexing it before letting it relax against her shoulder again. "Could you handle all of this? This arm has been doing the work of two arms for quite sometime now. I may not be a fighter, but I do have some muscles."

The music from the party could be heard as they near the beach. He looked down at Trinity, smiling slightly. "I'll make you a deal. I'll arm wrestle you, and if I win... You go on a real official date with me." Wes smiled, nudging her. "And if you win...?

Sloane walked slowly, very slowly towards the beach. Maybe if she was lucky enough, by the time she reached the beach, the party would be over. Most of the other campers were rushing towards the party, bobbing and weaving around her like she was just some tree in their way. That was fine by her. She'd rather be invisible than have them actually try to socialize with her. She turned the page in her book only to have someone bump into the back of her, causing her to drop her book.

Sloane steadied herself so she also didn't fall over. She slowly turned around, glancing over her shoulder towards whomever bumped into her. Domonik Einarsson. She had seen him around, and he was about as social as she is. She was half surprised the guy didn't trip over her. He was tall, very tall. Being as short as she is, someone that tall could hurdle her. Sloane noticed that he was handsome in an unusual way. Like the kind of way most people wouldn't notice, especially because of his parentage... And the fact that he was staring.

She didn't know what to say or do. Sloane brushed a strand of hair behind her ear before leaning down to pick up her book. But, Dom beat her to it, quickly snatching her book up from the ground. He then shoved the book towards her. "erhm here" Her brow raised slightly when his hand brushed hers. His skin icy cold. Not in an uncomfortable or alarming way, but almost in a odd familiar way.

When she looked back up, Dominik was gone, hightailing it towards the beach. Sloane stood there dumfounded. When her gaze fell back down to the book in her hands, she noticed the cover was slightly frozen. She lightly ran the tips of her fingers along the ice. She sighed, adjusting her bag on her shoulder before she continued towards the beach.

As Sloane stepped out from the tree line, she felt the strong urge to immediately turn around and head back to her cabin. Her fingers absent-mindedly chipped away at the ice on the cover of her book as she scanned the crowd of people. She weaved her way between people, looking for somewhere to sit that would opt for minimal human contact. But before she made it out of the crowd, someone snatched her book from her hands.

Sloane went to reach out and take her book back, but froze when she saw it was Sylas. He pursed his lips, looking over the frozen cover. "What happened here?"

She held out her hand. "Give it back."

"Ice?" He turned the book over, studying it. Sylas looked up, scanning the party until his gaze fell to the two Khione kids. His brow quirked as he held the book back out towards her. As Sloane reached out to grab it, Sylas took a step towards her, lowering his voice. "They're powerful. Useful with the right... Leverage." Sloane snatched the book away from him. She went to walk past Sylas, but he stopped her by grabbing her arm. "Take care of that."

Sloane shoved past her brother, holding her book tightly to her chest. She made her way to the edge of the water, stopping a few feet away from the current. She sighed, removing her bag from her shoulder and taking a seat on the soft sand. She reached down, unbuckling her shoes, pulling them off. Her toes wiggled their way into the sand, as she picked off the last bit of ice from her book.

โ€œ'Scuse me, Sylas,โ€ Harley said as she moved around him for a drink. After she got her drink, she gave him a silent cheers which Sylas raised his beer in a similar fashion to. He propped himself against the bar, taking a long drink of his beer, watching everyone move about throughout the party. His gaze continually finding its way back to his sister that made no attempt to mingle at all.

Sylas sighed, drinking the remainder of his beer. He never understood his sister's reluctance to do when their mother trained her to do. One thing that their mother told them never to do, was use their abilities against each other. If that wasn't the case, Sylas couldn't guarantee that he wouldn't persuade her. Eventually, she'd realize that its blood first and when that day came, he'd be waiting. Until then, just like he watched others, he also paid equal attention to Sloane.... Just waiting for the right leverage.

His attention was pulled towards the group near the bar when he heard Theo mention thoughts. Sylas smiled, walking over towards him. He patted Theo on the right shoulder. "Hey man, did I hear something about shots?" He nodded his head in greetings towards the others standing by the bar.

Sylas stood there quietly, listening as Ajax asked Emery about her thoughts in regards to camp. Home? hilarious. He'd feel more at home in a broom closet than at camp. But he didn't show that on his face, just smiling and nodding his head. He couldn't help but chuckle as he saw Andy teasingly mocking Ajax behind his back.

Theo laughed with Ajax as they both coughed back their first shots, raising his cup to the air as if to toast. They two had gotten a lot closer after the war as they took it on themselves to hold their makeshift family together through the tragedy. He heard footsteps behind him, and looked over his shoulder to see his sister approaching. She smiled at the two boys. "Ajax, hi. Theo, I believe you promised me alcohol?" He nodded towards his bag to suggest she could go ahead, but Alex came across from the other direction and requested a drink too. He went ahead and made both the girls a coke and whiskey, smiling to them as he handed them their cups. He was glad her sister was making friends. She could certainly handle herself socially, probably better than Theo at most points. She would thrive in camp life.

He leaned forward to whisper in Emery's ear so he didn't disrupt her conversation, "Hey, have fun. Just don't forget you have to formally introduce me to your cute redheaded friend." He glanced over towards Gwen. A group of newer campers had congregated and seemed to be enjoying themselves. That was good. Theo had grown protective over the camp and its inhabitants, which was technically his job anyway. He wanted to see everyone there succeed, and he wanted to watch the camp give to others what it gave to him.

A pat on the shoulder and a sharp voice broke him from his thoughts. "Hey man, did I hear something about shots?" It was unmistakably Sylas. Sylas was one of the more interesting and divisive additions to the camp. His parentage was disconcerting, and Ajax had already mentioned that he got a bad vibe from the guy. Still, Theo had yet to see anything wrong with him. Honestly, Theo found Sylas to be funny and mostly harmless so far. He did get this feeling of uneasiness and edginess when he was around though. Theo chalked this up to some of his preconceived notions about what he might be like.

He turned towards Sylas, "Yeah man. Straight whiskey. I'll take another round if you want a couple." Theo once again reached for his bag, but this time he got out all of the alcohol and cups and mixers. He opted to leave it out and let everyone make drinks for themselves. He poured four shots and passed two of them to Sylas.

Before Nik could answer Gwen's eyes strayed to Emery who was just coming down the beach and to the bonfire. Gwen caught Em's eye and waved, and Gwen returned the favor shooting her a smile.

Ummm, I'm doing great!!! I'm kinda nervous though, it's my first 'party'."
Gwen gave him a warm smile and nudged him with her shoulder. "You have nothing to worry about, trust me" She understood his nervousness considering she had gotten quite close to her half-sibling, Finn. He was also a little uncomfortable at things like these, but there was nothing more than a good support group of friends to help. "You have Annie, Adri, Ani, the others, and I for backup". "I just hope I don't mess it up, by being weird." Gwen's face fell at his comment. She knew that he had already underwent some teasing from other campers, and it put quite a damper on his mood. "Listen, if anyone has a problem with you they can gladly sleep with the fishes tonight" She winked and there was definitely a playfully gleam in her eyes.

Gwen's eyes strayed slightly as she noticed Finn had actually shown up, she grinned proudly at the boy even though he hadn't noticed her yet. She did however notice that a girl had peaked his attention and her eyebrow rose slightly. Hmm, he hasn't mentioned her before. It was obviously going to be a topic of conversation when they got back to the cabin.

"Spin the bottle anyone?" Kalani's voice caught her attention and she turned to see the girl holding an empty bottle of beer. Oh no... Gwen thought to herself, there was practically nothing more that she loathed. She loved general, normal interaction to meet others, but forced and awkward interaction was the worst. Gwen turned back to Nik to comment on the idea but her eyes widened when she saw his face. "Oh no. Absolutely not. I am not going to play that - " Before she could finish Nik grabbed her arm and drug her over to the circle sitting her down next to him in the sand. She could only hope and pray that the bottle didn't land on her.

Domonik sat on a log near the edge of the bonfire (far away from the fire itself) hoping to avoid any interaction. Then what was the point of even coming? If I'm not going to indulge myself like everyone else? He still wasn't sure on that be he had already gone extremely out of his comfort zone to even be near a party so he wasn't going to give in to the conversation aspect of it. It was guaranteed that no one would come out of their way to come talk to him, who would want to anyway?

"Hey there, I thought you could use one of these."

Damnit.

He turned his gaze to a girl, presumably a child of Aphrodite, who was holding a beer in her outstretched hand. "No". He turned his gaze back to the sand away from her. Most would just give up after this exchange, but clearly Aphrodite children were prone to not giving up on things they started. "What? No? I don't get a thank you at least?" He looked back up at her again, with his 'resting ice face' or at least that's what Annie called it. "Nothing? Alright. Fine. Might as well take the drink then." And by that she meant practically throwing the cup at him, for Dom however a quick flick of the wrist and the whole thing landed next to him completely frozen solid in the sand. The use of his power must've startled her because she took a step back and her left heel broke off in the sand which caused her to fall flat on her butt. Dom merely raised an eyebrow in amusement as she muttered a string of curses and stood up limping back through the sand to the party. Oh gods.

Now he was really starting to get the impression that he should leave.

Mateo watched the last of the partygoers trickle in, some of them he recognized and some of them he didn't know at all. He glanced over at Adrianna and Kalani, smiling slightly at how bubbly his new sister was. This entire experience almost felt strange for him, of course he enjoyed being surrounded by a bunch of kids his age. Somewhere along the line however, it seemed to him that they all were just really out of place. After this, where did they go? Carry on with normal lives? That became quite the challenge when you have a big neon sign above you head that reads, "IM DIFFERENT'. Matty suddenly felt blessed to be a child of Hera, she definitely knew her shit. He had labeled his abilities as 'users' considering that's pretty much what they did. When he first figured out he had the ability to make everyone do whatever he said it took him everything to not make his entire Private School bow before him. He chuckled at the thought. He just had a drive to do something, but he didn't know what yet.

His eyes trained on the group just down the table from him, he knew the guy passing out drinks was Theo, one of the older campers. Actually, the majority of them were older campers except a few. One of the boys definitely peaked his interests, he just seemed to have an air of confidence surrounding him which Matty found intriguing. Suddenly his gaze turned to Kalani, a newbie as well, as she raised a bottle excitedly in the air and called for a game of spin the bottle. Mateo smirked at the idea, he used to do this all the time back at school when all the kids would party together. It was quite possibly one of his favorite party games. He surveyed the party and decided that he probably wouldn't mind kissing half the strangers here.

Before going to join his sister and the others however he looked back at Theo and the group passing out drinks. He made his way across the table from the strange boy just as Theo slid two shots to him down the table. Mateo grabbed one of them from in front of him and downed it in a second before setting the empty shot glass back on the table. "Thanks"
He said smoothly and winked at the boy, pushing back from the table and joining the group sitting in the 'spin the bottle' circle, sitting next to Adrianna.

Emery, Theo, and Ajax were joined by a few people pretty quickly, first Alex, then Andy. Emery looked around while waiting, chewing slowly on a puff pastry, letting herself ease into the festive atmosphere. Camp Athens certainly knew how to party.

"So.. what do you think of Camp Athens so far? It's okay, you can be honest. If you find it shit? You can tell me." Ajax's voice caught her attention, and she swiveled back to give him her attention. "I honestly didn't like this place at first, I mean... it's a gorgeous place, but, it wasn't home. That changed. Now it feels like home."

"Oh, I wouldn't go so far as to call it home...yet," Emery mused. She'd never really thought about it before. She did have friends, and family here, but sometimes she still felt foreign and strange, uprooted as she had been time and again. "It's certainly welcoming, and a fair bit more interesting to be than most of the places I've been, though. Maybe in time this'll be a place I'm proud to call home." Maybe. If she stayed, and she never stayed anywhere for longer than a few years.

She stifled a laugh at Andy's antics, waving at her to acknowledge her presence. The faces the other girl was pulling were phenomenal.

Maybe Camp could be a place where she had friends to keep.

Theo returned with drinks, passing Emery a cup, and she pushed her thoughts away, determined to have fun even if it was just for one night. Taking a sip of her drink, she turned towards Theo as he leaned in close to whisper. "Hey, have fun. Just don't forget you have to formally introduce me to your cute redheaded friend."

He shot a meaningful look in Gwen's direction, and Emery scoffed, faking outrage. "Why, Theo. Not forward enough to make your first move, I see. Never fear - Miss St. John will find a way to make it happen."

While she was talking to Theo, some activity was happening over by the fire. A group of people gathered, and as Emery watched, Kalani jumped up to place a kiss on someone else in the circle...Emery's eyes drifted to the centre of the circle, where a bottle lay, and it clicked. This could be fun.

Still clutching her drink, Emery left Theo with Sylas, and made her way over to the circle. "Hey...I'm a little late to the beginning, hope you don't mind an extra player," she called to the group, moving to sit beside Gwen. The other campers obligingly made a space for her, and she squeezed in gratefully.

"Are we having fun tonight, Gwen? Hi, Nik," she leaned over to greet Nikolaos sitting on Gwen's other side. She turned back to Gwen, pitching her voice low. "If you had to choose someone here to kiss, who would it be?"

Something large and warm fell into Ji-hyun's arms, and he staggered backward. It wasn't until he'd helped the something upright that he realised it was Seung-min, having basically teleported right on top of Ji-hyun.

"Sorry, hyung! You know me, I'm like that. I can't believe you came all the way here little ol' me!"

Ji-hyun scoffed, reaching over to ruffle a hand through his friend's hair affectionately in response to his bright smile. "You little rascal. Of course I had to come get you. Couldn't risk you teleporting straight into the fire." He cared more for the kid than he showed, though, and the real reason was because he didn't want Seung-min going down alone. As calming as it was for Ji-hyun himself to be alone, he didn't want Seung-min feeling like there wasn't anyone at camp who cared enough to seek him out for activities. That was what Ji-hyun did - he made people feel good about themselves. No Hypnos-inherited ability there, just the goodness of his heart.

They started down the hill together, Ji-hyun strolling, Seung-min hopping. Ji-hyun let the other boy prattle on for a moment, then collected his thoughts to find a response. "My tea leaves said I should go. Well, actually my phone said I should go, but it was a sign from the universe that I ought to be at the campfire tonight. Besides, there's food, and that means I don't have to worry about dinner tonight." Okay, there was food every day, courtesy of the camp staff, but tonight's spread would probably be more interesting than normal. And Ji-hyun liked food and the warmth that the fire would no doubt bring. Maybe he could even find some marshmallows to burn to a crisp and eat anyway.

"Wait, what? No. You are not drinking. You're a child. Ohmigosh, you're seventeen. How can I let you drink? How can I answer to your parents?" Ji-hyun tried to make his voice stern, but in reality he was just trying to hold back laughter. While it wasn't exactly responsible of him to let a minor drink, he wasn't Seung-min's guardian, just his friend. As long as he kept an eye out for him...why not? Let the boy have his fun.

They reached the campfire, the other kids already milling around, and Ji-hyun made a beeline for the food table, grabbing some food and piling it on a plate. He offered it to Seung-min, taking a chip for himself. "Here. Eat some food first, then later when you drink, drink as much water as alcohol so your headache won't be as bad. I'm not going to bring you soup and biscuits in the morning, I'm too lazy, so don't regret your decisions." Well, maybe he might feel compelled to do something nice for a hungover child, but never let it be said that Ji-hyun does not do his duty as Seung-min's hyung.

"Go forth and have fun, but I'll be watching you." Ji-hyun turned his attention to the fire, where people were playing spin the bottle, and stuffed a sausage bun into his mouth, chewing as he watched. Not his scene, but fun nonetheless.

Theo followed his sister with his eyes to the circle of people in front of him. Her comment replayed in his head. "Why, Theo. Not forward enough to make your first move, I see. Never fear - Miss St. John will find a way to make it happen." He laughed it off like it didn't bother him any, but in all reality Theo saw it as indicative of the change in himself. A year ago he would have been more aggressive. Hell, he had been. Theo knew very well where that got him with Trinity. He had calmed down in the way he moved around people in the last year, though, and now he let things come to him. He had become a subscriber to the theory of 'if it is meant to be, it will be'.

Theo watched as another one of the new guys at camp snatched one of Sylas' shots off the table, knocking it back, and leaving with as quick as he came. The guy was clearly flirting with Sylas. Theo cocked an eyebrow at Sylas as his new friend turned back towards him, nudging him with his elbow. "Well, I guess that's my invitation to spin the bottle."

"Yeah, I bet," Theo held his suggestive gesture, as if to let Sylas know he wasn't fooling him at all by chasing the boy. "You should join... Who knows, you might get to kiss me." Theo laughed as Sylas stepped away to join the circle. He just stood there for a minute, almost to delay the inevitability of him joining the game. Looking around, he saw no other outlets for his attention that appealed to him as much as the game. Finally, as he downed his last shot, Theo shrugged and headed towards the circle. His sat down next to one his newer friends, Dimitri, patting him on the back as he slid into the niche on the unoccupied side of Dimitri. Theo looked across the circle at his sister and Gwen. Gosh she's beautiful. Theo thought as he saw the two laugh. He looked away as he saw Emery lean in and both girls survey the circle. Now all he could hope for was a lucky spin in his direction.

There was always this strange concoction of anticipation and dread with games such as spin-the-bottle. Every spin egged on by thoughts of both 'please let it land on...' and 'please don't let it land on...' There was a degree of fate (or chance, for the more realistic) that made each spin something of a thrill.

Annie hadn't played it many times before, and her last memory of it was as a teenager, with a boy whose eagerness combined with his lack of experience made for something less than pleasant.

As the bottle twirled, she hoped the best for Kalani, as she always did, and when it landed on her, she smiled knowing that Kalani would have no such issues, and nor would she. Such thoughts were reaffirmed with Ani's reaction, as the latter girl responded in a light tone,

"Oh, easy!"

Annie giggled at her 'great kisser' comment, and as Ani's lips touched Annie's own, the daughter of Apollo felt no embarrassment or concern, completely comfortable with her company and her kisser.

"Guess it's you, Lee!"

Annie leaned back slightly in her seat, looking at Lise expectantly, only for Lise to raise an eyebrow in a questioning look.

"Oh? I thought it was whomever the bottle landed on went next? I'm hardly a stickler for the rules, but I'm not a total anarchist."

She shrugged, her usual smirk reappearing on her face. "But if you insist."

Her numerous silver rings glittered in the firelight as she gave the bottle a twirl, and her smirk remained as the bottle spun once, twice, thrice, before finally landing on Trinity. Her eyes flicked up from the bottle, and she shot Trinity a flirtatious look before leaning across the bottle towards her.

"Xena, my love," She tapped her lips with her index finger, "You got something for me?"

Gwen's eyes followed the bottle as it slowed and eventually stopped on Annie. "Oh easy!" Kalani spoke and planted a quick kiss on the Annie's lips. Maybe I'm overthinking this... Gwen thought as she shifted nervously in the sand. If Kalani thought it was a breeze why couldn't she?

"Hey...I'm a little late to the beginning, hope you don't mind an extra player," Gwen looked up to the ever-graceful Emery as she squeezed into the spot next to Gwen in the sand. She was grateful to have another one of her closer friends for more support in the circle. "Are we having fun tonight, Gwen? Hi, Nik,"
Emery looked like she had more on her agenda than just playing the game and making small talk, but Gwen decided not to elaborate on her suspicions. "I was until Nik dragged me into the Satan circle. I'm not good at these things Em, I'm going to look like a beached puffer if I have to kiss anyone... a beached puffer!!" She whispered to the girl, quite aggressively. Em obviously didn't take her plea for help seriously as she let out a quiet giggle and nudged Gwen in the side. "If you had to choose someone here to kiss, who would it be?" The question completely blindsided Gwen as her cheeks burned a rosy color. "What? I don't know -" It was partially true. While she trusted Emery, she was too embarrassed to just blabber away with all the campers she found attractive, especially with one.

However, her eyes deceived her as she couldn't help but survey the circle. She didn't even notice that he had joined the circle. Her eyes lingered on Theo for a mere moment, before she realized she was staring and looked back at the sand. She had noticed the charming son of Artemis the second she had arrived at camp. On the outside he was fun and endearing, not to mention incredibly handsome. However, there was something else there that Gwen couldn't quite figure out, but she noticed it. He seemed a little strained sometimes, like he was holding a lot of stuff in, she couldn't imagine what he had gone through last year.

"Xena, my love, you got something for me?"

Lise brought her back into the moment, and she turned abruptly to Em trying to put on her best poker face. She couldn't exactly reveal to Emery that Gwen would probably want to kiss her newfound brother. Awkward, right? So she tried avoiding the subject altogether by directing it back at Emery. "That's like asking me to pick a favorite food, I can't chose. I mean, who would you pick?"

Dom watched the girl stumble through the uneven sand in her broken heel, his eyebrow still raised in a state of amusement. As his eyes followed her he noticed another girl sitting in the sand. And she was staring. At him.

She broke eye contact quickly and looked back at her book, when it clicked. The daughter of Eris, the same on he had bumped into earlier. He was slightly comforted to see he hadn't entirely damaged her book, but it looked like the universe had other plans. The tide began to pick up, and he watched as the water reached the edge of her heels startling her. She scooted a couple inches back, however, it wasn't enough to escape the tide.

He stood rather abruptly and took a couple steps towards her, and flicked his wrist. Just as the tide was about to probably soak her it froze in place. You could hear it crack as the water around her crystalized into ice, forming a U shape around her feet. "Are you alright? The tide can be pretty unruly at this time of night"
He shifted his weight back and forth, from foot to foot, this was uncharted territory for him. However, there was something about her that separated her from everyone else, if he was being honest she reminded him of himself. He didn't know whether that was a good or bad thing. "I'm Domonik. Dom"It was his attempt at starting a conversation with her, a seemingly normal one. He hoped.

He unconsciously reached out a hand to help her up, realizing his stupid mistake when his hand was already outstretched. It would've been cruel for him to take it back, but he knew she had already felt how cold his skin was earlier and was most likely repulsed. However, he left his hand out in the air, and just simply waited for her to decide to take it or not.

Mateo grinned at his sister as she came to sit next to him in the circle. "So, who do you want to land on you?" He half-smirked at her opening question, she just got straight to the point. He would've done the same if he had spoken first. At the beginning of the night he most likely would've answered that question with a, 'whoever's willing'. Very man-whorish of himself, but he knew he wasn't the only one thinking that. He treated flirting as a game, not in a conniving way, although he couldn't help if it came out that way, but rather just for fun. "Well, if everything went as planned, he should be coming to sit in this circle in just a second" He winked at Adrianna and looked back to the circle to see Sylas making his way over, his eyes trained directly on Mateo. Blunt. He liked it.

He leaned over and whispered in Adrianna's ear, "Hook. Line. And Sinker. As my father used to say" His eyes followed Slylas's as the boy boldly sat directly across from him."You're not the only one with some game sis, also don't think I don't see you trying to catch the Dark Lord's eye" He chuckled and flicked a quick glance in Mason's direction. "I'm shocked you got him over here, seemed like a real stick to me, but he is handsome. Just be careful alright? You never know with those Hades kids" He said to her quietly. He turned his gaze back to the circle, watching as Kalani went, kissing Annie innocently on the lips.

He caught Sylas's eye several times, and he couldn't help but smirk. He suddenly wished he was a child of Nemesis, he'd know exactly how to bend the luck into his favor.

Andy made quick work of the beer in her hand as she flowed with the music. When the bottle was empty, she simply conjured it away instead of having to stop to find a trash can. She closed her eyes, letting herself be taken by the music. Since the war, she's had so many heavy burdens on her shoulders that she forgot what it was like to just... Live. It was kind of liberating. She could feel the tension just roll off her shoulders as the alcohol soaked into her system. One night without inhibitions, pain and sadness.

She rocked back and forth with the campers around her, letting her body sway to the beat of the music. Andy's rhythmic movements momentarily dulled when she felt hands slide over her hips. She ran a hand back through her hair as she glanced over her shoulder to see who it was. If it was anyone other than Ajax, he would kill them. But, a soft smile graced her lips when she saw it was him as he pulled her back towards him.

Andy moved her body in sync with his, her left hand resting on top of his, sliding her fingers between his. Her body melted into his arms as they swayed together. Sometimes Andy forgot what it was like being in his arms. They both were always so consumed with other things. Ajax with the camp and herself with all her inner struggles. They rarely got to just be together and enjoy each other's presence.

"Can I come to your cabin tonight?" he asked. Ajax's voice was deep and raw, but still tender.

It took a moment for Ajax's question to actually sink it. When it did, it took everything Andy had not to stop dead in her tracks like a deer in headlights. Her heart skipped a beat, then pounded uncontrollably. She started growing lightheaded, unsure if it was from the alcohol or the question. They've gone to each others' cabins numerous times, at all hours. But, this was more than a surface level question. They've been together awhile, but their relationship hadn't reached that level yet. There were many reasons why she should have said no. But, one reason why she should say yes. Something she hadn't admitted to herself or verbalized.

Her head continued to spin, but Andy let her body lean back into his to stabilize herself without making her dizziness evident. She moved her right hand back, hooking it around his neck, curling her fingers in his hair. She slowly looked back over her shoulder, glancing up at Ajax. After exhaling, she nodded her head, whispering back, "...Yeah." Once she said it, Andy felt a wave of emotions overcome her: anxiety, excitement, fear and nausea. But, she didn't let her face show it. She just held Ajax's gaze as she danced with him.

Wes stared intently at the marshmallow stuck at the end of his stick. He didn't realize that he was kind of in a daze, and that the puffy pillow was burning until he felt a hand on his shoulder. "Hope you don't mind if I join you for a little bit."

"Not at all." He motioned for her to have a seat before pulling the stick from the fire, quickly blowing out the flames on the marshmallow. "I wanted it extra toasty," he lied, making an excuse for his daydreaming. He brought the burnt treat to his mouth, taking a bite causing the goopy white fluff to make a mess around his mouth.

"Something on your mind?" Alex asked after taking a seat beside him.

Wes finished the marshmallow, then used his thumb to wipe the sticky remnants from his mouth. "I have officially found a down side to having only one arm," he said while motioning the stick towards her. "I can't make a proper s'more. I can toast a marshmallow like no one's business, obviously," he chuckled weakly. "But you can't properly squish the melted bastard between graham crackers and chocolate with one hand. My life of campfire snacks is reduced to charred white goop on a stick... With lord knows what on it." He raised the stick towards his face, furrowing his brows as he inspected it.

After a weak laugh and shrug of his shoulders, Wes started stoking the bonfire with his stick, growing silent for a long while. He sighed. "That... And you know, the pity," he said with a nonchalant shrug of his shoulders. He kept poking the stick into the fire, not looking over at Alex. He was skirting around the truth. Not that he had any issue telling Alex anything. But, more that he didn't feel like getting into it when anyone could eavesdrop on their conversation.

His attention was drawn over towards the spin the bottle game when he heard giggling and laughter. Wes didn't realize until that moment that Trinity had joined the game, which gave him a sinking feeling in his stomach. He looked back to the fire, trying to ignore it until the next round was up. "Xena, my love. You got something for me?" He couldn't help the distasteful glare he was probably shooting towards the game. For some reason it angered him, hearing someone else call Trinity, Xena. He teasingly called her that about as much as he called her blondie. But those were his nicknames. Hearing someone else use them made his stomach turn.

Wes shoved the stick into the sand. He then removed his beanie, running his hand back through his hair. He finally looked over towards Alex, giving her a slight bump with his shoulder, attempting his best smile. "Go on back to your kissing game," he said, motioning his hand towards the spin the bottle game. "I'm fine." Wes knew he probably was overthinking things. He'd tell Alex about it later that night when they were alone or tomorrow. After all, it was a party. She should be having fun, not consoling her friend.

Sloane was ready to accept her fate with the tide. It's not like it was obscenely cold or anything, but she definitely wasn't in the mood to get wet. Just when the current was about to reach her feet, the water froze. It arched around her in the shape of a horseshoe, cracking as it turned to ice. Her jaw dropped as she sat there in the sand with her book clutched to her chest.

She looked upwards towards the tall, dark boy that froze her book. Her gaze shifted back and forth between the frozen water and him. "Are you alright? The tide can be pretty unruly at this time of night" Sloane didn't know what to say, staring up at him as he shifted back and forth. He was the first person to really talk to her since she arrived at camp... Which left her speechless and dumbfounded. "I'm Domonik. Dom"

Dom then reached his hand out towards her, presumably to help her up. She swallowed, looking between his eyes and hand. After a moment, Sloane hooked her left fingers in the back strap of her heels, then used the same hand to hold her book to her chest. She hesitantly extended her hand, placing her palm in his. Dom's skin was chilled, not cold like ice but cool like an autumn breeze, soft and refreshing. Her fingers wrapped around his hand, grasping it firmly as he helped her to her feet.

Sloane felt unbelievably short standing beside him without her heels on. She looked over at the water then back towards him. "Thanks... It's the first time I've actually been to the beach. Makes sense that it tries to eat me." She flashed him a weak smile. When she looked down, she realized she was still holding his hand. Her cheeks flushed as her gaze darted up to meet his. "I'm Sloane, she said, giving his hand an awkward shake before releasing it.

After a second, she cleared her throat, brushing loose hair behind her ears. "I don't have any nicknames... Unless you count the names some of the campers call me." Sloane quickly bit her lip. Why did she say that? That wasn't important or necessary information. She was mentally kicking herself. This is why she was antisocial. As she stood there, holding her book and shoes, she could feel eyes on her. She glanced around, most of the campers engaged in their own activities. But then she saw the broken heeled Aphrodite girl glaring at her. Sloane's brows furrowed into a distasteful, disgusted bitch face.

She must have looked particularly menacing or something, because the girl promptly scurried away, disappearing into a crowd of campers. Sloane briefly smiled to herself, before turning her attention back towards Dom. "I uh... take it you don't like parties either?" Dumb question, but she had no idea what to say. She didn't necessarily feel awkward in his presence. If anything, his social ineptness was similar to her own. She just wasn't used to really talking to anyone other than Sylas and her mother... Which isn't much to go off of.

Sylas opted for more of a backseat role in the spin the bottle game. Observing was more of his forte rather than partaking. Of course, if and when the bottle landed on him, he'd make quite a show of it. Particularly if a tantalizing brunette across the way was the fate's chosen victim. Who was he to protest? After all, it's for the sport of the game.

He leaned back, stretching his arms out behind himself to support his weight. His long legs extended before him, crossing at the ankles. Sylas didn't quite see the enjoyment in girl on girl kissing like some other males do. It didn't get him all hot and bothered. Anyone kissing was just kissing in his eyes. The only kind that got him excited was when it included himself. Plus, the kiss between Kalani and Annie was anything but steamy. Seven minutes in heaven would be more exciting than watching a bunch of girl's kissing each other like five year old school girls.

But, the one thing that continued to hold his attention was the attractive gent that he sat across from. Sylas was by no means blind, and intentionally met the guy's gaze whenever he looked towards him. Spin the bottle or not, he had every intention on pursuing that. He had plump lips that looked like the prefect specimen for kissing. And if his suggestive looks said anything, it wouldn't end at just a kiss. Not that Sylas minded... At all.

Oh boy. Another girl landed on... You guessed it, another girl. Sylas tried to keep from actually rolling his eyes, although it was tempting. As if he didn't like Lise enough, her whole demeanor about the kiss was just, bleh. So far, this was the most boring game of spin the bottle. He came for the drama... And the hot boy. Nothing even remotely close to what he wanted was happening. Of course, his face showed a different story. Half seductive glances towards the main reason he joined, and half fake amusement, pretending like he actually enjoyed this game.

Image Duke joined the girls slowly and watched Evelyn's hand hang mid-air and return to her side without shake.

At this rate things might have been less awkward with the drunkards in spin the bottle. It was that unwelcoming he even thought about merging over towards that game. But he preferred not to kiss people under the circumstances that a bottle told him to. Besides, he wasn't sure if this was how Evelyn and McKenna talked to people or there was some underlying stand off thing going on. He preferred the first because then McKenna definitely had a friend in Eve.

Duke bit his tongue for now though, even when he found Eve's questions a little interrogative towards his sister. When she moved to the coolers, Duke took the opportunity to step towards McKenna. "Call me if you need anything." He knew McKenna could handle herself but Duke wanted to cover all basis. Drunks pushing beers in her hand, Evelyn pushing her temper were probably the most concerning at this point.

Duke approached the fire catching the tail end of Alex and Wes's conversation. "...make things awkward for them."
It sounded more like an intimate, private conversation so Duke kept walking, and frankly, finding heat wasn't ever an issue for him. For now he'd have to stay a little longer before calling it quits and returning to his cabin.

Image Mason tried not to snicker as it landed on Trinity. It looked like it took a while for things to click in place for her, but when it did, Trinity went for it. She didn't hesitate which probably knocked Lise's ego up a couple thousand notches. But even Mason was pretty impressed and if she had done the same to him and kissed him the same way, he'd have an inflated ego too. She hung there for an extra moment, flirting with the daughter of Athena. No that wasn't right...death threat?

โ€œAl!โ€ Trinity called.
"Don't call her over," Mason grumbled, rubbing his forehead. Even the concept of her rejoining, doing some stupid fake modest giggle about having to kiss someone, annoyed him. Or worse those over confident "seductive" smirks.

A few impatient heckles came her way and Trinity took the spin. When it landed on Theo, Mason peered at Trinity's expression and laughed. For a moment he was worried he'd have to grab Trinity when she pounced and attacked him and they'd have to make a hasty retreat but instead, she kissed him like she was going to war. His eyes widened and brows shot up. It was probably the first time Mason was envious of Theo. Like not knowing whether she was going to kill you or give you the best angry sex of your life...what a thrill.

Mason rolled out his neck. His eyes washed over the circle. If the son of Eris knew some sub-text, maybe he'd revel a little more in the drama or make some drama and chaos, or maybe he'd just keep undressing Mateo with his eyes. Mason's eyes landed on Adrianna and he couldn't help the small smirk that passed his lips. He was hopeful but pretty pessimistic about the odds of landing on her and while she was beautiful, he wasn't swept away in the idea of lust like so many others tonight.
Trinity shrunk back into her spot beside him causing him to turn back to her. โ€œWell, next time I join something like this, don't let me.โ€
Mason laughed. "You did good, I'm honestly...blown away."
Trinity checked her beer. โ€œThatโ€™s my cue to go. Good luck, champ.โ€
"I almost feel left out. Donโ€™t you have something for me?" He tapped his lips as Lise had and laughed.

Boy he hoped Romeo saw Trinity and Theo kiss. Did children of Aphrodite even feel jealousy? His head shifted to Kalani curiously.
"Ani," he said, he thought he had heard people call her that before, "who's your favorite on camp so far? It's not a trick question either," he assured with an amused smile. He definitely didn't expect Kalani to say him, unless in a joking nature. "Just some...soul searching. An interval game, if you will."

Son of Apollo




Giving Emery a slight wave, Nikolaos seemed to be more lost honestly.

"Xena my love. You got something for me?"
the male's mind suddenly snapped from watching the flames roar nearby. He would laugh a bit towards his half-sister, and smile. He would suddenly feel kind of grateful he hadn't taken a turn yet, with his entire being he felt odd. He looked at the people, his dark blue eyes focusing on the faces he knew. He felt somewhat out of place, he hadn't been in a game like this before. What were the rules! But as he looked around he noticed a somewhat calming aura about the place and somewhat calmed down. He would run a hand through his dark brown hair, he'd look towards Annie and smile.

He'd continue scanning the area, and pardoned himself from the circle, and went to go get himself a drink. "Gwennnnnnn, I'm gonna go get a drink. Do you want one? Would you like one Emery?" the male asked before getting their answers and walking over to the drinks. He'd stand there a bit and hum a soft tune to himself.

Was he being awkward again? He was trying not to though! That should be the key! He would nurse his drink and look at everyone keeping an eye on what was going on.

Theo stared at Trinity intently, waiting for her answer. He couldn't tell if he had made it worse or what exactly might be going through her head. โ€œA girl kisses you and you ask her whatโ€™s wrong? Kinda brutal.โ€ Theo let out a half laugh himself. She certainly had a way of saying the thing that most avoided the question. Trinity was great at those things. "Come on, you know I'm being serious." Theo placed a reassuring hand on her shoulder. Then Trinity did the last thing Theo expected. She unloaded her thoughts on him. She got serious.

โ€œI don't know Theo, it's stupid." She paused briefly as if she was scared to let it out. โ€œJust... would you save me? Cause I kinda have this image in my head that all my camp mates would sooner abandon me and let me bleed dry than you know...actually help me. I mean there's enough hate in the world so one less hateful person isn't exactly a big loss...โ€

Theo opened his mouth to respond with reassurance of his loyalty to Trinity, but before he could get a word out Alex yelled his name and looped his arm and began to drag him away. Theo tried to resist, looking back over his shoulder at Trinity, but Alex was drunk and strong. He looked down at the girl as she started to speak, rolling his eyes. Maybe if he just listened then she would go away quickly. "You're looking good tonight. You been working out? Alex ran her hands over his arms. "Wow. Reckon you can lift me with those guns?" Theo just gaped at her. What was she doing? He looked back for Trinity once more as he contemplated just walking off, but she was already gone. He scanned the crowds, but he couldn't find Trinity or Ajax. He decided the best thing he could possibly do was get Alex back to her cabin before some new camper took advantage of her drunkenness.

"Alex, you're drunk." There was a sternness in Theo's tone that probably arose from both his frustration with having his conversation intruded upon and knowing who he was dealing with. He was conscious of what it would look like if he left with a drunk Alex hanging off of him though. He felt a twinge of regret as he spotted Gwen and Emery. He hadn't gotten to talk to her. He made a split second decision and looked back at Alex, "Let's get you home. We'll deal with the rest of this tomorrow." With that, Theo left the party, walking Alex back to her cabin. He was mostly quiet as they walked, lost in his own thoughts as he watched Alex move along with the intense focus only a drunk demigod can display. As they arrived at the cabin, Theo hugged Alex, whispering in her ear, "Get some sleep and eat well in the morning. Don't forget we have capture the flag tomorrow." He smiled at her, and then he began his own trek to his cabin.

Image "Well, I wouldn't wanna hurt your feelings and not say you, Mace; besides, I don't want to rule out anyone."
"Yeah because everyone knows how fragile and emotional I am," he muttered more to himself than her. Then he smiled to himself, half amused and half disappointed. He should have expected as much of a response.
"However, I'm more interested in hearing who your favourite is," she shot back.
"Oh, I hate everyone equally," he breezed. It felt good and weirdly therapeutic to get it out there even if it wasn't necessarily true. For the most part he didn't think much of anyone. There were a few standouts, fewer he loved, and few he loathed. Kalani couldn't expect a real answer from him either, just like she diverted hers. Part of Mason considered telling her though. Just as an ice breaker and to show he wasn't closed off. But picking favorites really was a tough pick.
"Do you feel jealous or possessive when your favorite is swept up in someone else?" he asked next. More to the point. Mason didn't have to try dance the tango with Kalani. He was genuinely curious when she was the object of desire if she were affected by such emotions.

When it became evident the game was losing its flare, he got to his feet with a sigh and offered Kalani a hand up. Once she was up, he gave her a small smile then offered a hand to Emery, seeing as most of her crew left her. Not that she wasn't independent but Emery would probably do the same for him. He gave a self-conscious look around seeing majority of campers travel off in pairs and groups. Mason cleared his throat. "Are you in need of an escort to your cabin?" He hadn't seen her drink so much but he wasn't exactly keeping a watchful eye on the daughter of Artemis either. "I was wondering too...I didn't really expect to see you there, so who'd you join for?" Mason smirked. "We all have that one special person our kiss compass points towards." Denying that would just be a flat out lie and while they weren't "besties" or anything, they were beyond lying. Not that he'd know the difference if she did namedrop. Mason hovered his hand by Emery to see how she held on her own. If nothing was required of him, he'd happily retire to his cabin for the night but if she wanted or needed brief company, then he'd provide that for whatever extension of time that took then retire to his cabin.

"Oh, I hate everyone equally," Ani rolls her eyes, she knew that many people would buy that when it came from the son of Hades, but Ani had no doubt in her mind that Mason was full of it. Maybe he wanted to seem brooding and mysterious, but she knew that he really wasn't all that hard to read. At least, she didn't think so. His next question, however, surprises Ani ever so slightly. She never expected Mason to be the kind of guy that danced around a subject, but Ani was also curious as to why he cared what she had to say in response, particularly because he 'hated everyone'.

"Do you feel jealous or possessive when your favorite is swept up in someone else?" Sure that his question to her was more a question for himself, Ani couldn't help but wonder who was Mason's object of affection - and who the person they were swept up in was. The only person that came to mind was Trinity, she had been chatting to him earlier in the night and then gone on to have a rather heated kiss with Theo. Plus, the last time she checked, Theo was rushing off after Trinity which certainly wouldn't play out in Mason's favour. The son of Artemis was particularly handsome and Ani knew that if Trinity gave him the time of day, he almost definitely would get her onside.

Trinity certainly seemed to be popular amongst the elder campers, speaking of which, Ani's mind drifts to her brother. Spotting him staring up at the stars, Kalani feels a pang of sadness seeing him alone, even if it was he who isolated himself. She couldn't stand the sight of those she loved not surrounded by happiness. Smiling up at Mason as he offers her a hand, she grabs it and jumps up, giving it a squeeze before she lets go. "For a self proclaimed dick, you're quite the gentleman." She retorts before finally getting to respond to his last question. "Oh and by the way, I've never had that happen to me," A lie, Ani had been madly in love with a man who barely acknowledged her existence before she came to camp plus it seemed like Lise had her sights set on just about anyone else but Ani, "I'm pretty good at getting what I want." She sends him a wink before turning on her heels and beginning to walk off. "See ya Mason," Ani calls back before catching Emery's eye, "Night Em." She didn't particularly know the girl all that well, but Ani was friendly with her enough to say goodbye - she didn't like to be rude.

Waltzing straight over to where Wes lay, Ani plops down next to him, moving her head until it's blocking his view of the sky and all he can see is her beaming grin. "Oi dopey," She teases, her spirits exceptionally high after their night of festivities, "I'm tired, walk back with me?" Since their cabins were next to each other, Ani was happy to head home with her brother. It was clear Wes had no real reason to hang around the party, so she gets up again, dusting the dirt off her skirt and grabbing his hand in an attempt to pull him up. Not that it worked, while neither of the Aphrodite kids were exceptionally strong, Wes clearly was far more muscular than Ani and so she could not pull her brother up for the life of her.

Letting out a huff, Ani waits for him to get up or tell her to piss off; she realised she was being a little annoying, but Ani really just wanted to lift her brother's spirits and so she was acting like a complete goofball in an attempt to get a laugh, or maybe even just a smile, out of him.

It wasn't a satisfactory answer, but Emery decided to let it slide for now. A little disappointing that Gwen didn't immediately answer with Theo, but it would make trying to get them together all the more fun. Besides, that wasn't Gwen's style, to be so forward.

Good question, though. Who would you pick? The easy solution was, whoever was interested in Emery herself. Not to get all sob story about it, but Emery never really had much time to get close to any interesting people - regardless of gender - and pining for anyone was, quite frankly, dangerous. So instead of saying anything she shrugged and made a noncommittal noise. "I'm not all that enthusiastic about anyone, no offence. Happy to accept whoever I get," she returned.

The game went on while Emery watched. No one landed on her, nor did she get a chance to spin, but it was fun watching all the same. Between the excitement and the drinking, her energy level depleted faster than expected, and before she knew it people had started leaving one by one. First Theo left, then Gwen, leaving Emery sitting sitting there, more if less alone. Seeing Theo help Alex back, she felt slightly guilty - she'd promised him she would try to help him and Gwen along and she hadn't even brought his name up in conversation yet. Maybe if there was an opportunity tomorrow...

A proffered hand entered her line of sight, and Emery looked up to meet Mason's eyes. She accepted his hand, letting him pull her to her feet while she called a goodbye to Kalani's departing back. "Are you in need of an escort to your cabin?"

Emery pretended to shiver, crossing her arms in front of her. "My knight in shining armour. I'd be so terrified of what lurks in the dark forest if you weren't here." She dropped her arms, giggling. Okay, maybe she was a little tipsy after all. Happens to the best of them. "You don't have to if you don't want to, but a walk up the hill together would be nice." Without waiting for his response, she gathered her trash and started up the path towards the hill.

"I was wondering too... I didn't really expect to see you there, so who'd you join for?" Emery shrugged again, tossing her now-empty cutlery into a nearby trash can. "I didn't really have anyone in mind," she admitted. "Just joined for a bit of fun. Although if you know anyone that's interested in me you should let me know, I could have a little fun while I'm here at camp."

The path back to her cabin was shorter than she remembered, or maybe she'd just been bouncing along in alcohol-induced bliss, because the pair of them reached her cabin pretty quickly. Emery turned back at the door, leaning against the frame to face Mason. "Thanks for protecting me from lions, tigers, and bears, oh my," she teased, reaching forward to place a hand on Mason's shoulder. "You're a good egg." Patting his shoulder clumsily, she opened the cabin door and all but stumbled inside. "Goodnight!" Oh yeah, she'd had a bit to drink, alright. But it wasn't nothing a demigod couldn't handle with a good night's sleep.

Image


Emery's eyes popped open, same way they always did every morning, about ten seconds before her alarm rang. The first thing she was aware of was that her mouth was dry, a searing desert that extended all the way down her throat. The next thing she realised was that she was hungover. "Fuck," she tried to say, instead managing little more than a strangled wheeze.

Rolling out of bed, she strode over to the tap, filling a glass and emptying it down her throat. She had to drink twice more before her throat felt like anything resembling its state before the party last night, but at least it didn't hurt so much anymore.

Thankful that she'd at least had the sense to change out of her clothes before crashing, she washed up and changed, pulling a thin sweater over her shoulders before heading out the door to the dining area. Not many people were around yet, and those who were looked like they might still be managing last night's effects, so Emery found herself some toast and a cup of coffee, and slid into a seat in a corner, choosing instead to go through social media on her phone instead. Later would be action enough, what with the planned activity, but for now she would take all the quiet she could get.

Inconstant, my ass. Seung-min was a bloody metronome - but Ji-hyun wasn't complaining. At least they were both having a good time. Still cradling the plate of food he'd scored, he opted to stand and watch instead of inserting himself into anything.

The time passed fairly quickly, and, convinced that the younger boy didn't need watching, Ji-hyun had walked a few circuits around the entire area, downing more food and approximately three bottles of cider in the meantime. Eventually, people started heading back, and Ji-hyun figured that was his cue. He hadn't made any significant contact with any of the other campers - except for maybe Seung-min - and while that in itself was disappointing, it wasn't stressful at all.

Before he left, he snagged another bottle of alcohol, holding its cool neck gently between his pale fingers. Humming quietly to himself, he began the trek back to his cabin, where he planned to lie in bed and read, maybe catch a few hours of sleep. It'd been a good evening.

Image


The morning dawned bright and early to find Ji-hyun curled up in bed, reading. This particular novel was pretty heavy, almost a tome by Ji-hyun's reckoning, so he was lying on his side, unmoving save for occasionally turning a page. He'd been reading most of the night, sleeping for maybe a few hours before getting up again to read some more. Having nothing better to do, when he first came to camp he'd brought his tiny book collection, just so he'd have something to entertain himself with instead of turning to - shudder - physical activity. What a nightmare.

It was still early, though. He could relax a while longer before going down to breakfast. He wasn't much inclined to run around looking for a flag just yet.

Image "For a self proclaimed dick, you're quite the gentleman." Mason frowned. He never called or thought himself a dick directly. Sure he knew he was rough around the edges and other people thought he was a dick but... a thank you probably would have sufficed from Kalani. Maybe that one 'I hate everyone equally' comment had painted that picture. Andy and Trinity would have just laughed. Andy would probably bump him and tell him to lighten up and Trinity would nod and probably chime 'me too.' "Oh and by the way, I've never had that happen to me," she answered. "I'm pretty good at getting what I want." She winked and spun on her heel. Yes, the spoiled children of Aphrodite were. "See ya Mason."
"See ya, Ani."

His dialogue with Emery was no better, the small brunette turning into a mini sass queen. "My knight in shining armour. I'd be so terrified of what lurks in the dark forest if you weren't here." She giggled. This is what he got for being nice. "You don't have to if you don't want to, but a walk up the hill together would be nice." Mason fell in step with Emery as his answer. He wouldn't have risked offering if he didn't want to go a step further with the daughter of Artemis.

To his last question, she began to answer, "I didn't really have anyone in mind. Just joined for a bit of fun. Although if you know anyone that's interested in me you should let me know, I could have a little fun while I'm here at camp."
Mason grinned. "Is fun code for fling in this instance?" He guessed in her slightly more scrambled brain it was. "Don't worry, I'll let you know. I'm very 'in the loop'."

When they reached her cabin, Emery turned and leaned against the doorframe to face him. "Thanks for protecting me from lions, tigers, and bears, oh my," she said and Mason smiled sadly. He hoped she didn't feel the less pleasurable effects of alcohol in the morning. "You're a good egg," she concluded, throwing her hand lazily into his shoulder or something like that, and afterwards stumbling into her cabin. Mason lurched forward to help but she had enough composure to give a final, "Goodnight!" call and to shut the door behind her.

He let himself laugh quietly and headed back to his cabin. He must've sat up in bed for a couple more hours at least. Not doing anything really except waiting for his mind to go blank and sleep to take him. Mason didn't have nightmares anymore but he was afraid of them.

____________________________________________________________________

When he finally convinced himself to get up, the next conviction was much more of a press. That being to get out of his cabin and his stomach argued that point largely. He sighed out letting the need for food win again but not before getting changed. If throwing on the closest shirt and whatever slacks counted.

On his way to the hall, Mason spotted a girl on her own lapping up the sunshine and fresh air. He couldnโ€™t recall her name regrettably but she was eye capturing without trying to be. She never made a scene of herself and he knew little about her, except that he was intrigued by her. Keep walking, keep walking, he told himself. Mason kept watching her. Then there was no mental tear about it as Kalani approached her instead. He'd have to high-five the girl or something at some stage for making the decision easier.

In the dining area, there were a few odd bodies already in place, including Emery, feigning interest on her phone, a clever avoidance technique from conversation, and Harley. He sighed out and found his own seat.

Image They shook hands firmly which gave the girl some brownie points with Duke. But just as easily, things took a turn. He jolted in attempt to catch her but the mini collision had already happened and been resolved just as quickly before he could respond.
โ€Ah, sorry! Sands a smidge wetter than I thought there.โ€ He only smiled and shook his head to communicate no harm was done, unlike the effect on her castle and statues. Maybe he should have apologized. โ€Thanks, I've always had a talent for sculpture. It's no so much the crowds, nor the parties ye ken. It's just been a lot to take in, lot to go through. And I divent know who people is.โ€ He gave a nonchalant gesture as he found himself trying to repair and rebuild her castle wall. โ€Given who we are. A suppose we've all lost stuff afore we come here, maybe thatโ€™s why we're sent here. Soes them we love don't find themselves in the crossfire.โ€

He sighed out. "I think the point of a party," he emphasized to keep their topics less soul bearing, but in no way ignoring the girl's observation of why half of them were there, "aside from an excuse to drink, is to meet people and, uh...what do people say? Let down their hair?" He furrowed his brows. All those snazzy expressions and lingos weren't his territory.

โ€Ye must think I'm an idiot. A wee lass playing in the sand on 'er own.โ€ Duke laughed. Not in a cruel way though. He had to admit, many people of their demographic didn't play in the sand alone or at a party but he didn't think that made her an idiot. โ€Seems we're nearing the last still out, party must be coming to a close. Time for us to head back?โ€

Duke glanced over his shoulder. And so the party was, but the dying fire and party couldn't hold his attention. "Different is good. And you can head back..." he begun, palming over a heap of sand to start his own castle "whenever you like." Duke raised his hand towards the bonfire, giving it new life and passion to light up the beach for them once again. He grinned towards fire then his company. "So for reference do I call you wee lass or do you have a real name?"

It took some time for Duke to project his vision on his castle, especially working with something as small and delicate as grains of sand that fell through his hand or off the sides, but he made it work eventually. Once his task was complete, he climbed to his feet and offered the girl a hand up and walked her to cabin, bid her goodnight then went to his cabin for the night.

____________________________________________

It had crossed his mind in the morning to knock on McKenna's door and ask her if she wanted to grab some breakfast together, but he thought it best to leave her be. She could have already been engaged and committed in an experiment, her work or simply enjoying a sleep-in.

Duke kept walking and stumbled upon no other than Alex. Doing a workout by the looks of things, using a limb of a tree to pull herself up. "You got to engage your core," he said and automatically held his as demonstration. "Don't pull up on momentum, pull up with these."

Gwen stretched nearly falling off the side of her bed as she let out a small groan. Although she hadn't drank the night before she was still a bit tired from the party. She rolled to her side and checked her alarm clock, it was already eight. She frowned slightly, Finn must've gone for a swam without her. Granted, she was a bit grateful that he hadn't woke her she rather enjoyed the extra hour of sleep.

She eventually willed herself to move and shuffled to her closet picking out a rather cosy cable-knit sweater and slipped on her tan birks. She left the cabin walking down the gravelly path towards the hall where they always served food. She normally spent a couple hours in the morning swimming but her hunger was greater than her longing to swim.

When she entered the hall she saw a few familiar faces, Em, Nik, and her brother. His hair was slightly curled from his apparent morning swim, and he was talking to Nik. It was a strange sight, she hadn't seen her brother approach the shy but sweet boy before. She raised a slight eyebrow a little curious but nonetheless happy Finn was expanding his friend horizon. She waved at him and Nik as she passed, offering them both a lazy smile.

She made her way over to the breakfast that was in a buffet style. Her stomach rumbled quietly as the smell of cinnamon French toast and pancakes wafted her way. Gwen couldn't deny the fact that she had a bad sweet tooth, and filled her plate with pancakes and some grapes. She contemplated going to sit with her brother but he seemed pretty invested in his conversation with Nik so she steered towards Em's table instead. "Hey stranger"
Gwen said with a smile, plopping down in the seat opposite from Em popping a grape into her mouth. "Sorry about disappearing pretty fast last night , I got pretty tired and Finn was ready to head back".

Dom was up before the sun even had a chance to rise. He always got extra early in the morning, he enjoyed the part of sunrise where everything was just very quiet. Dom also found that the woods surrounding the camp had the perfect path for a jog. He took this time to jog around the campus, there was nothing he loved more than listening to the sound of the life around him wake up in the morning. As he jogged through the thick forest, the sun just barely peeking up from the horizon, the birds started to faintly chirp and he could practically hear the forest breathe itself awake.

After his short morning warm up, he took a quick (cold) shower, and threw on a collared shirt and some jeans. He thought to wake Raven, he contemplated the idea for a moment, it seemed like a nice gesture but he eventually was hesitant enough and decided against it. Before leaving the cabin however, he snatched the book off of his nightstand and took it with him on his way to the dining hall.

As he got closer he noticed Sloane and stopped for a moment a little lost in thought. She seemed different today, her clothes especially were a definite shift from last night but the look altogether seemed a lot more Sloane. He took a step to approach her but then he noticed Ani dash in her direction and begin to strike up a conversation. Of course, he thought to himself, I mean I only talked to her once, I can't just assume that we're the best of friends. He sheepishly took a step back and headed towards the hall again and was greeted with a few familiar faces. He made his way over to a table with an assortment of fruit and grabbed an apple before finding a secluded table in the corner and made himself comfortable. He took a bite out of the apple and flipped the page, investing himself into the book and drowned out the noises of the dining hall as he ate.

Matty nearly smashed his alarm clock when the damn thing started blaring at seven in the morning. He groaned shuffling around in his blankets for a bit before managing to roll himself out of bed, his head pounding with a killer headache. He rubbed his eyes, praying that they weren't too terribly puffy, and popped about six aspirins as he marched himself into the bathroom succumbing to a long and scalding hot shower. He pretty much moved subconsciously through his morning routine the motions ingrained into his mind. He settled on a rather neutral but classy outfit, throwing a pair of shades on top of his head as well.

He shuffled slowly through the cabin pausing at his sister's door to knock on it softly. He hoped she didn't have too bad of a hangover. "Sis, I'm going to get breakfast"
He paused mid-sentence to yawn, "you know where to find me".

He made his way across the grounds of the camp, a few of the others awakening around the same time as well. As he got closer the tempting smell of bacon and buttered toast made him quicken his pace as he entered the doors to the dining hall. His eyes immediately sprung to the man-candy that had captured his eyes last night, he was currently chatting with the Hades Kid. How odd. Matty could tell Sylas liked a widened playing field when it came to the other campers, he appreciated it.

He noticed he had caught the eye of some Demeter girl, who was making googly eyes at him from across the room. He gave her a winning smile as he sat down at a table and she immediately came over to him. "Goodmorning..." "June!" She chimed in her face flushing. "June... Such a lovely name" She giggled, and let out a shy 'thank you' as Matty leaned closer to her making direct eye contact. "Would you be a dear and go get a plate of breakfast for me? I just woke up this morning with the most awful headache and I would really appreciate it". Matty smiled as her eyes clouded over, almost as if they were covered with a sheet of silver. It was just for a moment, and if you weren't looking for it, you probably wouldn't have noticed. "Of course you poor thing! I'll get it right away!" It was so much easier to influence if they were willing. It didn't take the Demeter girl but a couple of minutes before she returned with a hot plate of breakfast setting it down in front of him. "You are a lifesaver, I owe you one" He said with a small wink and watched as she blushed even more and dashed away back to her friends. Matty bit into a piece of toast, leaning back into his chair a rather self satisfied smirk plastered across his face.

Theo rolled out of bed with all the laziness of a bear emerging from months of hibernation. Still, when his feet hit the floor he was awake. Theo had always been one of those people who was alert as soon as his feet hit the floor regardless of how much he often struggled to force himself out of bed. He was a known morning person. As he made his way into his bathroom, Theo smiled at his lack of hangover. He honestly had not had a ton to drink at the bonfire, and it took a lot to affect him anyway. Theo could hold his alcohol from a high school experience replete with endless partying.

As the hot water, beat down on him, Theo thought over the day ahead. Everyday held endless possibilities, something he had come to learn, but today had him particularly excited. As a returning camper and a leader around camp, he had the privilege of knowing about the game of capture the flag that the entire camp would be getting into in the next few hours. It was the first time everyone would see what their fellow demigods were made of. Theo smiled as strategies and ideas ran through his head. He knew he was one of the more capable fighters with one of the more unique skillsets on camp, but he found that people often underestimated his mind. Theo was as smart as they came, and he saw everything around him.

He stepped out of the shower, running a towel over his body before he approached the sink to brush his teeth. He threw on some jeans and a white t-shirt, shook his hair up so it would fall in messy disarray, and took off down the hill to the mess hall. He almost ran down the hill, but he let his speed level off as he reached the bottom. Numbers of demigods were lazily approaching the mess hall from all corners of camp. Theo had a certain bounce to his step as he smiled at those he walked by.

Upon entering the mess hall he took a quick glance around. Not too many of his core group of friends were present, but he did spot Emery. Of course, she was sitting next to Gwen. Theo put on his best smile. He knew there was no reason for him to put off introducing himself any longer. He approached their table, choosing to sit across from them. First he gave his attention to Emery. "Hey Em, hope you're feeling alright this morning. You had a good bit to drink last night," he teased his sister. Theo liked having a sibling bond with someone. It had changed his view on so much. "Really though... are you ever going to introduce me to your pretty friend here," Theo gestured at Gwen, flashing an innocent look her way before reaching his hand across the table as he spoke, "I'm Theo. And... you must be Gwen." Theo let his tone drip with charm. "It is certainly a pleasure."

A Facebook feed full of cat videos occupied Emery's attention pretty quickly, which is why she didn't notice the girl making a beeline for her table. "Hey stranger," Gwen chirped, settling herself in across from Emery. She startled, looking up from her phone with a jerk. "Sorry about disappearing pretty fast last night, I got pretty tired and Finn was ready to head back."

Emery relaxed back into her seat, meeting Gwen's smile with one of her own. "That's alright. I had a bit much to drink, so Mason walked me back afterwards." She reached forward, stealing one of Gwen's grapes. It was sweet, just tart enough to wake her up. "There, now we're even."

And speaking of brothers... Emery turned to look around the hall, wondering if Theo was up yet. Speak (or think) of the devil, there he was, just entering the hall. Sensing an opportunity - what better way to get to know someone than over food? - she put her arm up just as he spotted them, waving at him to come over. "Theo!"

Smiling, he joined their table. "Hey Em, hope you're feeling alright this morning. You had a good bit to drink last night," he teased. She reached over and pinched his arm. He knew full well that she didn't like that nickname. "That's Em-ery to you, buster," she made sure to enunciate the second half of her name, hating that he didn't have anything she could use against him. Though, she did like the feeling of siblings bickering - it felt like home, a sensation she hadn't been familiar with in a while.

The spell was broken when Theo turned to Gwen, who was clearly his main target. "Really though... are you ever going to introduce me to your pretty friend here." Emery rolled her eyes. "I was going to... Then you opened your fat mouth."

He went on anyway. "I'm Theo. And... you must be Gwen. It is certainly a pleasure."

Emery had to take a bite of toast to hide her smile. Really, the boy had no concept of subtlety. Chasing the toast down with a drink of coffee, she piped up, trying to save Gwen from her bull of a brother. "As you have so astutely pointed out, Theo, this is Gwen. And Gwen, this is..." Here she turned to fix Theo with a pointed stare, trying to telepathically tell him to cool it, "...my brother, Theo."

"That's alright. I had a bit much to drink, so Mason walked me back afterwards." Gwen waggled her eyebrows slightly at the comment, "Mason huh? I didn't expect you to go for the dark and mysterious type". Gwen was quick enough to swat Em's hand away as she snatched one of her grapes popping it into her mouth, "hey! There are plenty of grapes at the table" . Em just shrugged at Gwen's comment as she swallowed the stolen grape, "There, now we're even."

"Alright, fair enough".

Gwen watched as Em's eyes trained just off to Gwen's right, and she turned her head to see who had caught her attention "Theo!" Oh gods. He had a broad grin on his face, he was devilishly handsome. She whipped her head back around to the table and prayed that she would restrain from properly embarrassing herself.

Theo plopped himself down next to Em joining their table. "Hey Em, hope you're feeling alright this morning. You had a good bit to drink last night," Gwen smiled as she was Em pinch him in the arm in retort, it reminded her of Finn and herself. "That's Em-ery to you, buster," Gwen let out a soft chuckle as the siblings went back and forth, and she stabbed her fork through a piece of pineapple, munching on it accordingly.

"Really though... are you ever going to introduce me to your pretty friend here." Gwen froze mid-chew her cheeks blushing a faint rose as she raised her eyes to Theo who looked pretty satisfied with himself. Em clearly wasn't having his flirtatious banter "I was going to... Then you opened your fat mouth." She refrained from laughing at Em's snarky comments, the two were clearly related.

"I'm Theo. And... you must be Gwen. It is certainly a pleasure." He extended his hand for her to shake, which she found a proper gesture, but nonetheless shook his hand gently. Her hand felt small compared his. She was like a fish out of water, frozen in place. She hadn't expected him to come on so strong and it completely threw her off guard.

She realized she had been holding on to his hand for too long and quickly took it back. Her face flamed even more as she noticed Emery trying to hold back her laughter at the awkward situation. "As you have so astutely pointed out, Theo, this is Gwen. And Gwen, this is..." She held a slight pause, "...my brother, Theo."

Finally, Gwen mustered up the courage to speak up. "It's nice to finally meet you, Emery has talked a lot about you. All good things, I promise." She tucked a stray auburn hair behind her ear and offered him a shy smile. She wasn't used to being so nervous around others, but she couldn't help the fact that her crush on the boy had completely stuck her foot in her mouth."I saw you at the party last night, but it ended so fast and you were busy so I didn't have the chance to introduce myself." Of course, there was a little bit of an underlying meaning. For one, they had made eye contact a few times but Theo seemed a little into Trinity after their kiss. She wasn't daft, of course those two had a little history and if Theo was planning on charming Gwen for a rebound she wasn't entirely here for it. Even if she found him incredibly handsome.

Dom flipped through the pages soaking in the book itself, he hadn't been much into true classics but something about it engrossed him. Maybe it was Sloane, maybe some tiny thought had told him if he read it he'd understand her a little better. Speaking of Sloane, as he flipped a page his eyes strayed above the cover of the novel and met her gaze. She must've escaped the conversation outside and made her way into the hall. She smiled and waved slightly, in which Dom smiled back. His heart panged a little when she didn't join him at the table, but it was irrational. They had only just met.

Dom's gaze traveled back to the pages, so when his half-sister sat down in front of him he didn't even notice her presence until she spoke up. His gaze fluttered from the word he was on to her, a little startled but mostly shocked. He hadn't expected her to make the first move to talk, the fact she did speak first made him feel a little guilty. He should've introduced himself already, that's what normal siblings did. "The Iliad, huh? I didn't know you liked such books."
He could tell she was a bit nervous, and he didn't blame her, he was too. He was quiet for a moment, partly because he had no idea what to say, or how to even approach the conversation. He had been an only child and a strange one nonetheless, but he needed to try. Raven was quite possibly the only one in this camp who could truly understand him. "Hmm? Oh, it just something a... friend gave to me. Just to pass the time". His index finger drew a steady, small circle on the page of his book, a nervous tick to help him concentrate on the conversation. "I have the Aethiopis, it's another good read if you like that one." He offered her a faint smile, and nodded his head slightly. "Thank you, I have a few as well, but my collection is a bit scattered. The Jungle, The Grapes of Wrath, Lord of the Flies." Dom liked anything striking, and powerful, novels that changed the very way you think. However, he didn't mind a classic ever so often.

"I hope you've been uhm, enjoying yourself at camp? I know for me it's been a little difficult", especially as a child of Khione, "So maybe you've fared better?" Raven seemed to be a little more outgoing than he was, she had a charisma about her that he envied. So maybe she had already acquired friends, or maybe they were more alike than he thought.

Mateo had dug into the plate before him, a little surprised. Although the food fared a little less than what he was used to back home, it was quite delicious. He had just stabbed into a piece of cantaloupe when a girl, he hadn't met before approached him. โ€œMorning. Can that nifty trick be taught or is she just a peach?โ€ She was a little rough around the edges, or so he assumed but he didn't mind the edge. Not to mention she had noticed his little trick and was amused rather than appalled. He smirked and lifted is fork in a 'ya got me' gesture. "A magician never reveals his secrets, but if I might add the peachiness definitely makes it a bit easier". That statement was true, the more willing they were the easier it was to compel. "If you'd like to see it in action however, I'd be more than happy to have you fetch me a glass of water." He raised an eyebrow, his smirk growing a little bigger, but when he saw her expression he laughed. "I'm just kidding, I've had enough fun this morning already".

โ€œDid you have fun last night?โ€ Matty turned his head to the side letting out a soft chuckle at the question. "As much as I could. The damn thing ended before all the real fun would start. I guess I was a little let down, I expected a demigod party to be more exciting than the ones the frat boys throw on back home. Tell me, have you ever seen a nineteen year old boy take ten shots of vodka in a row, recite the Gettysburg address, and then jump through a window? It's more exciting than you think." What a wild ride his short time at college had been. He'd seen things, that no one should probably ever see in their lifetime, but hey that's college for you. He nodded towards her, taking a bite out of a piece of bacon. "What about you? Everything you've ever hoped?"

Theo could feel the dagger eyes from his sister, so he turned to wink at her as if to say I got this sis. Theo felt Gwen's hand pull away ever so slowly, and his fingertips tingled as her touch left him. He turned back to Gwen as she spoke almost timidly. He wondered if this was her normal manner of interaction or if maybe she was nervous. "It's nice to finally meet you, Emery has talked a lot about you. All good things, I promise." Theo marveled at her beauty as she tucked a hair in behind her ear.


Still smiling at Gwen, he started with a joking tone, Better be! If she ever talks bad about me, let me know. I've got some dirt on her too." Theo slapped Emery on the back and let out a laugh just to make sure that she knew he was one hundred percent joking around.

Gwen spoke up again, "I saw you at the party last night, but it ended so fast and you were busy so I didn't have the chance to introduce myself." Theo could hear the slight change in her tone. He could easily guess what she was referring to. After chasing after Trinity and inconspicuously leaving with Alex, he figured someone might get the wrong idea. Of course, in both situations Theo's intentions were pure. He wanted to check on his friend, and he wanted to make sure no one took advantage of Alex. He gave her a soft smile as he spoke, "Yeah, I could tell Trinity was upset. I guess I wanted to know why. As far as Alex goes, I owe it to her and Ajax to have their back. She was drunk enough to hit on me, so I figured I better get her out of there as soon as possible. I don't know these new guys, and I don't trust them. All innocent. I promise."

Theo felt he may have over explained himself, but this was an important conversation. He wanted to reassure Gwen that he was a good guy. He looked from Gwen to Emery and back to Gwen before deciding to change the subject. "I heard that we're all playing a massive game of capture the flag today. I bet that will get interesting. Maybe they'll put us on the same team... He gave a nod towards Gwen as he let his best smile take over his face again.
