D E C O R U S


h e i g h t x // x5'9"

w e i g h t x // x140lbs

h a i r x // x golden-brown, chest length, straight and wavy

e y e s x // xa burnt amber

o d d i t i e s x // xshe has an spatter of freckles from being in the sun too much and a small scar running along her left forearm from a swordfish.

a p p e a r a n c e x // xGwen definitely has a beach-babe vibe going for her. Tan-skin, light freckles, and tawny hair, it's not hard to tell she spends most of her time by the water. She doesn't believe there to be anything too special about her appearance, her features are rather plain and pretty.

Since Gwen has more or less been living by the Florida coast her wardrobe is very comfy and fit for warm weather. She always feels awkward in tight fitting clothes, and will run the other direction from the more revealing - clothing. She's a true tomboy at heart, and won't ever shy away from a floral dad-shirt every once in a while.

P E R S O N A L I T A T E
xxxxxxxxxxxxβ€’ x loyal x β€’ x moody x β€’ x compassionate x β€’ x strong-willed x β€’


In truth, Gwen has a heart of gold. While her temperament can sometimes mimic the sea making her a little moody sometimes she is one of the most compassionate people you'll ever meet. She always puts her heart out there for others no matter the circumstance, it's just a habit of hers. She is one to stick up for herself and others when someone steps out of line, making her a great friend to have. Gwen always wants to be there for her friends, and being a great listener is one of her many attributes.

Gwen is a very open person. On a very good day she almost resembles a very playful tide. She's bubbly, loyal, and a true comedic. She loves making others laugh and is in artist in the field of pep talks. Granted, she also knows when to be serious and take a step back, giving someone their space. She constantly worries about her friends all the time, and that's just something she can't stop. She'll do anything for her friends, making her a little easy to be manipulated. Gwen will do stupid things for love whether it be romantic or platonic.
Gwen can almost be described like the tidal wave of optimism, that everyone needs in their life. Granted as she's gotten older she’s grown out of her eternal optimism and shifted to become a bit more realistic. However like most children of poseidon they have the temperament of the sea and her attitude can change quite quickly. been known by his friends to go from entirely optimistic to completely defeated. It's not in any way bipolar, more of just her enhanced ability to feel emotions. She’s often thought that her emotions will shift when the tide does but that was a little thing she said to herself when she was little. She’s entirely prone to going through moody phases of doubt and weariness, which to others can be quite exhausting to watch and endure making her best left alone when she’s in one of her β€˜moods’.

Gwen can be a bit stubborn in her decisions, not in the sense that she believes she’s always right but she hates being told what to do. In all, Gwen is full of compassion and energy, complemented by a realistic, if sometimes distracted, mind. Inspiring, convincing and colorful, She is a natural at getting attention.

H I S T O R I A R U M


Gwen was born on a sunny July afternoon, that her mother often recounted as the most beautiful day she’d ever seen. Gwen’s mother, Angelina Thompson was a competitive surfer, and a good one at that. No wonder Poseidon found his mother so enticing, she was one of the only ones that could successfully tame the waves. Her mother and Poseidon had a rather puppy love relationship that lasted a little while, before Poseidon eventually had to return to his domain. Angelina never said one bad thing against the man to Gwen, she only spoke positive about the man who was supposedly her real father.
When Gwen was four her mother fell in love with Sebastian Greer, a local marine biologist that spent the majority of the time out in the ocean. Seb welcomed Gwen as his own daughter, and to this day she’s always felt more of a connection with Sebastian than Poseidon. Seb was the one that always took her out on the waters starting when she was six, and found her love for the sea.
When she was twelve, her father (Seb) and her went out on a seemingly normal sunday afternoon that quickly turned into a dark and cold storm. The waves were enormous and their small boat was no match for the beasts. On the second wave that rocked the boat both Gwen and her father fell into the ocean, and for a moment she thought she was going to die. She can’t exactly describe the experience but the second she fell into the water it felt like she was returning home, surprisingly the water rushing around her was warm and welcoming. The thing that scared her the most was she realized she could breathe. In her midst of fascination and panic she let the water carry her to her father who was suspended underwater, near death. She looped a rather strong arm around his shoulder and with help from some force she was propelled back to the surface of the water.
She somehow managed to swim back to the boat carrying her father’s weight and ludged them both on the deck. With her rush of adrenaline she willed the sea to take the boat back to shore and, it did. She didn’t feel surprised but rather relieved.
When they made it back to shore her father was revived by a local fisherman that had just returned back from the waters as well. Gwen was ruled as a hero and her father never forgot how brave she must’ve been. No one thought anything of it except Gwen and her mother.
A week after the incident her mother came to her and revealed everything, about her powers and her father. At first, it was all too much to absorb but it somehow felt right. It wasn’t long before Poseidon got wind of her boating story and asked to arrange a meeting with her, formally at the beach.
He wasn’t what she was expecting. A burly man, no doubt that he belonged with the waves. Their conversation was seemingly normal, and Gwen actually enjoyed it. Poseidon genuinely wanted to hear about how her mother and herself were doing and told her a couple of stories about himself. It was him who recommended Camp Athens, a place where she could practice her abilities and be with others like herself.
The idea seemed exciting to her and she couldn’t turn it down. With the help of her mother they came up with the story that it was a marine biology school that was offering her full tuition and her father couldn’t contain his excitement. It hurt her a little, to lie to him, but she couldn’t turn down this possibility. She had been containing her call to the sea for too long and her insatiable curiosity could not wait.

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.

Son of Apollo




The brunet boy would smile as he looked into the mirror, dressed in the outfit one of his siblings helped him prepare. This was his first real party! Aside from when they introduced the new campers, but he didn't really view it as a party, per say. But this was his first, actual party!! He was sort of nervous though, he wasn't extremely good at socializing. Briefly thinking not going, he would shake his head and clear his mind. He had to. This would help him be "normal".

His normally ocean colored eyes would be a light greenish-blue coloring, due to his excitement. He was hoping the few friends he had would be there, but the son of Apollo wasn't opposed to making more, he was quite a bubbly person.

With a smile, the boy exited the Apollo cabin with a pep in his walk. He would begin to head towards the beach, he would smile and hum a soft melody, as he walked. He placed his hands in the pockets of his jacket and grinned. Maybe Adrianna or Gwen would keep him company tonight. Or Finn! He would giggle at the idea, as he would reach the area and look around. People seemed to be happy, he was excited for such though, along with being one of his first parties. It was also his first campfire. He always liked fire, his father often had the fire roaring in the fireplace, in Pasadena. He would rake his hand through his hair look around for people to talk to.

poseidon β€’ #E1A391 β€’ casual

Gwendolyn loved the idea of a party. Currently, she didn't know a lot of the campers (old and new) too well and it was bothering her. She was so used to being with her own little 'school of fish' back in Florida that it felt like she was being dropped in the middle of a shark tank. Making friends wasn't a real worry for her however, that came naturally. It was just finding ample opportunities and this was a perfect one.

She slipped out of the shower, feeling rather refreshed. It never took Gwen long to get ready considering the fact she had a few tricks up her sleeve. Drying her hair was just a simple flick of her wrist, and Voila! Beach curls in a second. She had already picked out a casual outfit the night before, it was simple and comfy, turning heads wasn't just her thing. She also couldn't promise herself that she wouldn't get in the water either so she decided against wearing something super nice.

She was about to leave when she passed by Finley's closed and quiet door. Finley was her newfound half-brother, and to her it felt like she already had known him her entire life. The two had a bond that she couldn't quite explain and she truly loved him. Except his anti-social tendencies. Of course he wouldn't want to go to the bonfire tonight, it just wasn't his thing. However, Gwen couldn't bear the thought of leaving him all alone. She lightly rapped on his door placing her ear against the frame.

"Finley! Finns. Is there any chance you could go tonight? It's just a small bonfire, there's food, and it's right next to the beach. You know you always feel better by the water. Plus I'll be there the whole time, so if you feel uncomfortable you can just talk to me!" Gwendolyn stuck her head through her sibling's door giving him a winning, 'please don't let me go alone' smile. It wasn't the first time she had pleaded with Finn to get out of his room and go socialize with the other campers. She figured that it wasn't that the boy was antisocial more so that he just needed a little push and nudge to talk to others. She hated leaving him all by himself all the time, especially when she was out having fun, it didn't feel fair. Her shoulders sagged slightly and a small poignant sigh escaped her mouth, this was where she really got him. Gwen stuck out her bottom lip in a pouty fashion and let out a little sniff of sadness. "I mean, I could just go by myself... You know what? I- It's alright, don't worry about little ole' me. I'll be fine.... all alone.... by myself..."

A large grin broke out on her face as Finn caved into her requests. She burst through the door, practically jumping on the bed to give him a rather large huge. "Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You won't regret it, I promise. Who knows, you might meet someone special" She waggled her eyebrows in a goofy fashion and hopped off the his bed. "I'll see you there" With that she left his room, grabbing her small and soft cream sweater jacket by the door. The tide at night brought in a rather cool breeze and she wasn't looking to freeze.

It didn't take her long to make it to the beach, (considering the Poseidon kids lived fairly close to it). A couple of the older campers were already around the fire, Gwen knew well enough not to approach them first. Although she loved being friendly, she could see the strain on all of their faces, they needed space and time to make up for what they lost. She had heard a couple of rumors from some of the newer campers about last year and it didn't take her long to realize they had all been to hell and back (some literally).

Her eyes particularly lit up to see lemonade at the drink table. Oh thank Gods she thought as she grabbed a bottle and popped the cap off and took a drink. Her eyes rescanned the crowd and she giggled quietly as her eyes landed on a rather peppy Nik. She made her way over to the son of Apollo an inviting grin on her face. "Nik! It's nice to see a familiar face, how is my sunshine doing tonight?" Since she had gotten to know the quirky boy, it was almost like she had molded into a mothering role.

Dominik loathed the idea of parties. Parties meant talking, which meant socializing, and making friends. None of the things he ever truly enjoyed when it came to camp. The moment the idea of the bonfire was announced he had already settled with himself that he wasn't going. He didn't see the point. Aimless chat that lead to nowhere, mixed with barbaric demigods, the thought made his eyes roll back into his head.

then why was he going

It was stupid, such a stupid idea for him. Dom didn't know the first rule about parties (hell if there even were set rules) but something was just nudging him to go. It wasn't everyday that Dom just did whatever a little odd feeling said but for the tiniest moment he had hoped it was his mom. That somewhere she was just thinking about him, and pushed him to go try something new. He knew it was farfetched, and his mother was a bitch, but that slightest inclination gave him the strangest courage.

There were some problems, Dom didn't know what to wear, when to show up, or what to do. Great start Frosty, he thought pessimistically as he rummaged through his closet. Even though the nudge had given him the will to go, it didn't give him the will to stand out. For a while he contemplated asking Raven, but he didn't even know what to say. Things were already awkward between him and the girl who he recently learned was his half-sister. After a while, he just settled on a casual outfit, dark colors, plain. Perfect.

He waited a while, for it to get dark before finally venturing towards the beach. He slowed his pace to a walk as he tried to go through all the possible scenarios in his head. Dread started to set in as he thought about the party, and several times he almost turned around. Still, there was something just pushing him to try, and he secretly, deep down, he wanted to, just maybe. Dom was so caught up in his scattered thoughts that he wasn't paying any attention to his path and bumped into the person walking in front of him. He wasn't going fast enough to completely knock them over but enough to make them drop their book. Book? This person must have the same distaste in parties that he had.

Domonik raised his head to the girl that he had accidentally bumped into. His face flushed slightly as he realized he had seen her around camp before. A daughter of Eris, but he couldn't recall her name. She was... beautiful in a non-traditional way, but Dom knew well enough to not approach her. Not only was he rubbish with talking in general, but he knew well enough beautiful and himself didn't mix.

He quickly picked up her book, his nervous emotions causing the front cover to freeze a little at his touch. He rather awkwardly shoved the book into her (not outstretched hands), flinching slightly when his hand brushed against hers. He hated the idea of coming into contact with others due to his icy skin, it made him terribly insecure. With as much avoidance of eye contact as possible he muttered a quick and incoherent, "erhm here"
before turning and hightailing it down the trail to the bonfire.

This was going great already.

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.

Finley had only left his cabin once today, for his regularly scheduled swim with his newfound sister, Gwen. While he knew that there would be a bonfire for all the campmates later on, Finley had already resigned to not going. He had never been the most sociable person, and while he deeply loved the friends he had made since being at Camp Athens, Finley felt as though he didn't need anymore. Hell, he'd even gained a sister since being here, what more could a guy ask for?

However, Finley also knew that Gwen would never let him miss an event like this. She had fully embraced responsibility as little sister and would try anything to get Finley out and socialising. What made it even worse was that stupidly adorable face she'd pull every time he said no, forcing Finley to reconsider.

As the time for the bonfire grew closer, Finley found himself surprised that his sister hadn't yet come to guilt-trip him into going. That is, until he hears a knock on the door and a familiar face pops around the corner. "Speak of the devil," Finley mutters to himself, not being able to stop the smile that forms on his lips.

"Finley! Finns. Is there any chance you could go tonight? It's just a small bonfire, there's food, and it's right next to the beach. You know you always feel better by the water. Plus I'll be there the whole time, so if you feel uncomfortable you can just talk to me!" Finley was about to respond before Gwen continued with her usual flurry of words, "I mean, I could just go by myself... You know what? I- It's alright, don't worry about little ole' me. I'll be fine.... all alone.... by myself..."

Letting out a small laugh, Finley knows he's not getting out of this. "Alright alright, I'll go!
" No one would believe these two had only met a mere few weeks ago; Gwen already had Finley wrapped around her little finger.

Feeling himself be knocked backwards from the force of Gwen running and jumping on him, Finley has a hard time staying upright despite the girl being a fair bit smaller than he is. "Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! You won't regret it, I promise. Who knows, you might meet someone special" Finley laughed again as she bounded off the bed and back towards the door like an insatiable ball of energy, "I'll see you there."

Sighing as she leaves, Finley wonders why on earth he agreed to go to this silly bonfire. Who knows, you might meet someone special Gwen's words stick in Finley mind as he shakes his head, "Yeah right." Finley says to himself. He has a hard enough time making friends let alone getting someone to actually want to date him.

Getting up from his spot on the bed, Finley lazily walks over to the wardrobe, not really caring all that much about what he was going to wear for tonight, however he was currently in a vest and shorts and he knew Gwen would be more than a little disappointed if he showed up looking like he was still in his pyjamas.

Throwing on one of his nicer t-shirts and his beloved pair of black sweatpants, Finley runs a comb through his hair before giving his appearance a once-over in the mirror. "Eh, good enough." He sighs as he heads for the door.

The walk down to where the bonfire was being held was short and yet Finley repeatedly contemplated heading back to his cabin. The only thing that drew him toward the gathering of Demigods was the fact that it was so close to the beach. The water calmed Finley and he knew if there was every anytime he was going to be friendly, it would be whilst he was beside the sea. As he entered the clearing that would put him in the sights of the others who were currently gathered, Finley spotted Gwen talking to Nik - one of Finley's other few friends. He thought about approaching them but hung back for a little, not wanting to impose while also knowing that with them, he never could.

Letting his gaze flicker over to the others gathered, Finley noticed some less familiar faces. He had seen almost everyone around at some point, but had not gotten to know very many. The few people who had managed to befriend Finley did so because they were already friends with Gwen. His eyes finally land on the cooler filled with beers. Deciding a little liquid courage couldn't hurt, Finley heads over, smiling slightly at the other person standing there - Mateo? He decided that was probably the guys name, but Finley still did not speak to him, he just sipped his beer as he watched everyone else having fun.

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!"

Draining the bottle he held in his hand, Finley looked over at the partygoers once more, boredom creeping up on him. Gwen and Nik still stood together, chatting away. Finley decided maybe he would approach them, before his eye is caught by someone else.

He didn't recognise her but she stood alone, just out of the way. Her eyes grazing over each person as though she was waiting for something to happen. Swallowing his last sip of beer, Finley takes a deep breath - he wasn't used to approaching other people, in fact, usually Finley liked to steer clear of others.

However, this is a party after all and if he can't be sociable here, where can he. Turning to the drinks table behind him, Finley pops the cap off of two more beers, the cool bottle a comfort against his increasingly sweaty palms. Gods, why was he so nervous.

Sure, she's beautiful, but just the simple fact of approaching someone, anyone, was what caused Finley's stomach to turn. Shaking his head slightly, Finley resolves to do this one thing. If he doesn't talk to anyone else tonight, he will talk to this mysterious girl.

Setting a small smile on his face, in the hopes that he can look friendly, Finley walks the short distance over to where she stood. Still alone, still watching everyone else. Clearing his throat, Finley extends a hand which held one of the beer bottles, "Hey I, um,
" He begans -not the smoothest start - "I got you a beer."

Shit, what was that? He didn't even introduce himself, just shoved a beer on her. What if she doesn't even drink? Oh Gods, this is why he doesn't talk to people, Finley thinks. Mentally, Finley kicks himself but outwardly he doesn't let the smile on his face flinch for a second, his hand still outstretched. Hoping she took the beer so he'd be free to head back to his cabin and never speak to anyone again. This is what happens when Finley, the notorious recluse, tries to make friends. It doesn't go well.

The two girls reached the bonfire in a matter of minutes, fingers still entwined. It was more of a subconscious thing that Kalani did and she certainly never meant it romantically. Just like she might grab Wes' hand to drag him to see something, taking Adrianna's and pulling her along to the bonfire meant nothing more than Kalani was excited and wanted to get there now.

Just a short while after they had arrived, so did Annie, greeting them with a, "Hey! ... Woah, well, you guys look amazing.
" Kalani giggles, sending her a smile in the form of a 'thanks' before grabbing Annie into her arms for a tight hug.

Finally releasing the girl, Kalani steps back to assess Annie's outfit, "You look so lovely!" She beams, excitement bubbling up in her voice. Kalani couldn't be happier, surrounded by her two very best friends at camp. Of course none of them had been there long enough to be actual best friends, but it had been surprising how quickly these three had taken to each other. Kalani had always been good at making friends, and it seems that only a short while after arriving at the camp, she had managed to do just that.

"I thought Lise was coming with you- Ah I see now." Kalani follows Adrianna's gaze to where Lise stood, alongside Dimitri. Oh. Kalani's smile falters for a fraction of a second, before she places it back at full force on her face. "They look cute together." Kalani forces out, catching Lise's eye and sending her a wave as she does so. Shaking off any negative emotion she may be feeling.

The girls chatted and danced along to the soft music drifting throughout the bonfire for a while, until Kalani noticed someone catch Adrianna's eye. Before the girl could tease her about it, the daughter of Hera opens her mouth. "Girls, I'll see you in a bit. I found a challenge, byyyye." Kalani laughs softly and waves her off, watching as Adrianna makes a beeline for Mason. That would be interesting.

Kalani would be content to just sit and watch whatever was about to happen unfold, but instead she turns to Annie, a wry smirk on her face. "Let's play a game," She whispers to the girl before she turns away to face the rest of the partygoers. "Hey, guys," Kalani calls out in an attempt to get all their attention.

She then waltzes over to the drinks table, picking up the bottle Finley had just placed down. "Spin the bottle anyone?" She suggests, her smirk growing into a full fledged mischievous grin. She knew some of the elder students would probably sit this game out, but Kalani couldn't think of a better way to get to know her fellow newbies than by kissing them!

Creating a circle of people just next to the fire, Kalani heads back to Annie and squeezes her hand, "Come play." She whispers, before taking a seat for herself in the circle and placing the bottle down in the middle of the group.

Spying Gwen and Niko standing a couple feet away, Kalani calls out - "Hey you guys, wanna join?" Attempting to get as many people involved as possible. This ought to be an awful lot of fun.

"I thought Lise was coming with you- Ah I see now."

Annie didn't need to turn around to know who Lise was with. 'Tall, dark and handsome, had been clue enough. Instead, her attention turned to Kalani. Catching the glimmer of sorrow on her face, Annie frowned in concern, and looked over to Lise and Dimitri.

Suddenly, the sight was somber instead of entertaining, and Kalani's, "They look cute together," incited a troubled look rather than a smile from the daughter of Apollo.

As it always did, the concern settled in her mind, and even Adrianna's 'challenge' did not work to eradicate it. It was comfortable there, now, and Annie feared its lingering, not in herself but in Kalani.

She'd always had it, this tendency to overthink things, to fret and worry over others rather than herself. Annie was ever the altruist, and she empathised so fiercely with other people, that it was hard to even escape their emotions, let alone ignore them.

Not that she ever wanted to, for it was in her nature to care.

Lise, on the other hand, seemed blissfully unaware of the tension, and grinned wildly when she caught sight of them, waving eagerly before cocking her head towards Dimitri to ask,

"You know Kalani and stuff, right?"

She barely waited for a reply before marching over towards the trio, breaking into the circle slowly being formed as her eyes lit up in eager anticipation.

"Did I hear, 'spin the bottle'?"

Annie, meanwhile, blinked a couple times, perturbation touching her features as she considered the game at hand. Kalani's gentle squeeze of her hand brought her out of her awkward anxiousness, and she shrugged before smiling with resolve.

"Sounds fun."

She smiled at Gwen and Niko, abandoning her apprehension in favour of cheer, waving them over just as Lise sat down inelegantly beside Kalani, shooting Dimitri yet another you coming? look as she pointedly slapped the seat beside her.

The male would wave towards Gwen, his turquoise orbs gleaming towards her. He would giggle a bit, before beginning to speak.

"Ummm, I'm doing great!!! I'm kinda nervous though, it's my first 'party'." the brunet spoke, before taking a sip of his sprite he had gotten just a few seconds before Gwen had arrived over towards him. He would smile before playing with his jacket a bit, and speak again. "I just hope I don't mess it up, by being weird." the male spoke puffing out his cheeks. He was slightly bothered, by what one of the campers had said about him his first week at Camp Athens, but essentially blew it off. He didn't think he was weird, he was just....special. As soon as he ended his comment, he heard a voice speak.

"Spin the bottle anyone?"
Kalani's voice rang in his ears. He would look towards Gwen with a pleading look, and begin to drag her over there. He was determined to be normal, and he had never played spin the bottle. He learned that it was a common teenage experience that most people go through in high-school. Not really growing up around other kids, Nikos was determined to play this game. The boy would sit across from his half-sister and would give her a smile looking over to Adrianna as well, smiling and sending a small wave.

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.

As the number of participants in Kalani's little game begun to grow, as did the excitement bubbling in her chest. Ani had always been an excitable girl, but nothing got her quite as animated as parties - specifically party games. They always made things interesting. Glad to see Annie come over and sit herself down with her brother who had also just joined, Ani sends her another smile, her tongue poking out from between her teeth, something she did when she was excited.

Lise is next to come over, sitting right next to Ani, and while the smile never wavers on her face, Ani can't help but think that there's no way she's gonna get to kiss Lise now - not when she's sitting right next to her! For such an intelligent girl, Lise had been pretty oblivious to Ani's little crush on her. Lise is quickly followed by Dimitri, who she is sure to send a semi-sincere smile to, after all, he didn't know how Ani felt.

"Suggester spins first, right?" Ani is startled as a deep voice speaks to her out of nowhere. She'd never expected Mason to join, but Ani knew that he would make the game extra intriguing. Especially since Adrianna seemed to have her sights set on the guy. "Mason, I didn't realise you were a seasoned pro."
She teases, raising an eyebrow yet knowing full well that it was unlikely Mason played this game often; but who knew, the guy seemed full of surprises.

As she is about to spin the bottle, Ani's attention is caught by Wes and Trinity walking through the clearing and into the party. Of course, her big brother had never mentioned his real feelings for Trinity to Kalani - they'd only just met and were still trying to get to know each other, so their love lives never really came up - but it would take a very oblivious person, and an especially oblivious child of Aphrodite, not to see the chemistry between them. Or at least see how Wes looked at her. Attempting to catch her brother's eye as he walks over to the snack table, Ani sends him a little wave.

"Shall we begin?" Another male voice brings Ani out of her thoughts. Oh crap, she'd gotten caught up in seeing what Wes was doing she'd almost forgotten to take her turn. Laughing softly, Ani nods and turns back to the group, looking at each new member. She'd managed to draw in both old and new campers which delighted Ani, hopefully there would be some proper bonding going on tonight so that everyone got to know each other a little bit better - or at least got to know the inside of each other's mouths a little better.

Hand on the bottle, Ani gives it a strong spin, her eyes glued to it as it began to slow. Oh Gods, who was she about to kiss. Ani's heart pounded in her chest as it passed Mason, then Sylas, spinning past Niko and finally, it landed on Annie.

"Oh, easy!" Ani beams, jumping up from her seat and bounding over to where Annie sat. "Don't worry, I've been told I'm a great kisser." She giggles, leaning in to softly peck Annie's lips. She wasn't gonna go in for a full make out or anything, not with one of her closest friends. That would probably make things just a little awkward. Instead, Ani opts for a sweet little kiss, before she gives Annie a jokingly flirtatious wink and heads back to her seat.

Eyeing up the group, Ani tilts her head to the side, "Right, who's next?" She ponders, before turning to look at Lise who was sat next to her. "Guess it's you, Lee!" Clapping her hands together in glee, Ani sits back, waiting for Lise to take her turn.

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.

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?

β€œAl!” 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. β€œWell, next time I join something like this, don't let me.”
Mason laughed. "You did good, I'm honestly...blown away."
Trinity checked her beer. β€œThat’s my cue to go. Good luck, champ.”
"I almost feel left out. Don’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 lost focus on the game for a minute after he caught Gwen staring at him. He looked from Gwen to Trinity, wondering if things with this new girl would fare better for him than the last time he caught feelings for a demigoddess. Trinity's facial expression particularly his eye as she seemed deep in conversation with Mason. Theo's brows furrowed. That fire she always had behind her eyes was intensified, but he could almost see that it was burning out of rage. One of the new girls approached her, snapping Theo out of his state of intense observation. He glanced back at the bottle and realized that the girl had landed on Trinity. Theo almost laughed out loud. Trinity of all people... especially considering he could tell that whatever her and Mason had spoken about had royally pissed her off. She might slap the girl. Surprisingly though, she took the new girl's kiss like a champ. Trinity predictably tried to delay her own spin in favor of seeking an out, but she eventually gave into the peer pressure of the groaning demigods around her. She leaned into spin, and the bottle seemed to rotate forever. As it slowed down, Theo's eyes grew wide. No way... Then the bottle came to a stop, and the reality sunk in. It was pointing unmistakably in the direction of Theo. Shit.

It wasn't that Theo didn't want to kiss Trinity. Of course he did. Just because he had gotten past his crush, she was still Trinity. She was still just as beautiful and fierce. Theo would still do anything for her, but he wasn't sure if she knew that or not. Honestly, he would probably be right back to how he felt before if she felt the same way all of a sudden.

The next few seconds were a blur for Theo. Trinity stomped her way towards him, and he just sat there. He couldn't really move. He was held in place by the weight and the irony of the moment. What if Wes saw? Why did this moment that he had wanted for so long have to come in a stupid game? And what the hell was Trinity mad about? Then she pulled him up with one hand and her back and her lips came to meet his. Theo was shocked by the fire behind the kiss. Was that fury? He almost didn't know how to react. Was she gonna pull away and slap him or was she kissing him with some passion she had never admitted to? Then it clicked that he was kissing a girl, and he let himself get into it for the rest of the kiss. It wasn't like it was long, but it definitely wasn't short. It happened, and then it was over. Trinity turned on her heels and promptly left the circle with only a look and a comment to Mason. Theo just stood there for a second probably looking stupid. No doubt he had a stunned gape on his face.

Kalani broke him from his daze, "Looks like it's your turn Theo. Although I doubt anyone's gonna be able to top that kiss." Theo snapped back to reality, but his mind followed Trinity through the crowd. He needed to go to talk to her. He quickly leaned down to spin the bottle. He could care less who it landed on. It spun and spun until it slowed and ended up pointing at the daughter of Hera. Theo was pretty sure she had said her name was Adrianna. Usually, he would have savored this moment. She was on the short list of hottest girls at Camp Athens, but Theo was too floored by the events of the past five minutes to even care. He approached her, giving her a slight smirk for show and planted a quick peck on her lips. Then he turned away and left the circle at the same place Trinity had. He spotted her immediately as she walked. Theo felt a twinge of guilt as he passed Wes on his way after her. He really hoped the guy hadn't seen what went down. I'll deal with that later. Theo pressed on as he finally caught up to Trinity. He slowly but firmly grabbed her arm to turn her around. He wasn't violent about it in any way. Still, he could never be too careful with sneaking up on the warrior princess. His inhibitions were in the wind at the moment.

"Hey, are you okay? And don't lie to me. I can see it. You know I've always been able to read it in your eyes," Theo stammered out. "Talk to me, Trin." Theo tried to give her a reassuring smile, but he wasn't even sure that came out right.

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. β€œA girl kisses you and you ask her what’s wrong? Kinda brutal.” 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.

β€œI don't know Theo, it's stupid." She paused briefly as if she was scared to let it out. β€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...”

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.

Whilst he waited for Areum to respond, Finley glances down at his watch, checking on the time. Surprised at how late it was, Finley then looks over to Gwen, hoping that she hadn't had too much to drink since he knew he'd be the one walking her back to her cabin. Noticing that spin-the-bottle seemed to be winding down, Finley felt ever so slightly relieved, he'd only been avoiding his sister because he didn't want to get roped into kissing random strangers. Since he could barely hold a conversation with Areum, Finley doubted he'd be much of a kisser.

Draining his bottle Finley shifts his gaze back onto Areum, a small smile on his lips. "It's been really nice talking to you,"
He begins earnestly, "But I should probably take my sister home." Finley chuckles, motioning over to where Gwen was seated. "I'll, um, I'll see you around." He says with a nod and walks off. Heading for the table where the drinks were once but now had only empty bottles. Places his own beer bottle down, he runs a hand through his hair, quite pleased with himself for surviving the party.

Others seemed to have decided the party was over too and he spotted Theo walking off with Alex. His sister would probably be a little upset if she saw that, since Finley knew she had a thing for Theo - as much of a thing as a girl can have for a guy she'd only known a couple weeks. Thinking about his sister reminded that he still needed to walk Gwen home and so he turns back to face the party and heads over to where she sat.

By this point the fire had become mere embers and any kind of light it had been emitting was rapidly dulling. Placing a hand on Gwen's shoulder, he leans down so their heads are level and whispers, "Wanna head back?" His eyes shifting around the loose circle that had already seemingly been broken a few times.

Finally, they landed on Annie and Finley's smile grows to become more genuine, he didn't know the girl all too well, but just about everyone at camp knew how sweet she was. Deciding to offer to walk her home also, Finley calls over the circle, "Annie, me and Gwen are going to walk back now, do you wanna come?" If he wasn't mistaken, the Apollo children's cabins weren't too far from Poseidon's, besides, even if it was a bit of a walk, Finley didn't mind dropping Gwen off home and then walking with Annie a little longer.

Finley stands up as he waits for the two females to respond, wiping at the small drop of beer on his t-shirt he had gotten earlier. That's what you get for showing off is all Finley thinks to himself, almost amused at how badly his attempt at being 'cool' had gone.

A sXXTrinity's lips pressed against Lise's, the latter girl's brows shot up in bemusement, and once they finally separated, said expression did not leave her face.

XX"Was that okay?"

O h ,XX definitely. Lot of passion, which is always fun, although you were sending out some major hate-sex vibes. Not that that's a bad thing. Also, I can tell that you're a little inexperienced, but I would be happy to help you with that.

T a c t l e s sXXas she was, Lise knew better than to say any of this to the obviously emotionally conflicted demigod, so instead she just carried on with her detachedly amused smile, and raised her hand in an 'okay' gesture.

S h eXXher own kiss, she was surprised by how quickly she'd grown bored by the game, which was so often the source of drama and scandal- at least in 90's teen dramas. Her attention was quickly drawn away from the empty beer bottle, as she watched with a smirk the chaos around her. Or, perhaps not chaos, not yet. But brewing. She barely knew half of the people at camp, but none of them seemed especially apt at hiding their emotions. Their furtive glances, their jealous frowns, their conflicted gazes... they weren't subtle in the slightest.

L i s e ' sXXeyes drifted to the angsty brunette -Alex, was it?- as the girl dragged Theo away from Xena, clearly unable, or perhaps unwilling to read the room. Ha. Relatable, amiright? A lot of unpleasant rumours followed around the daughter of Zeus, the most prominent being the story of her murdering a fellow camper last year. Apparently, it had been an act of vengeance, and although Lise sympathised with the notion, the fact that she'd been allowed to return to camp without punishment after literally killing someone irked her slightly. Perhaps it was her logical nature, that demanded fairness in regards to punishment and legal retribution. Then again, it wasn't like she was much of a stickler for rules, so perhaps she was being hypocritical.

T h e nXXagain, she had never murdered anybody, so perhaps she wasn't.

D e s p i t eXXthe drama going on around her, Lise's attention was dragged back to her own circle when Mason (Or 'Fall-Out Boy', as she liked to call him) queried Ani about her 'favourite person at camp.' Despite herself, Lise found herself surreptitiously listening in, curiosity riddled with something else caught in her expression. Ani's vague answer brought a small smirk to Lise's lips, and, satisfied, she took her attention back to the messiness around her. At least, until Ani rose from her seat, and Mason's issued yet another delightfully tantalising question.

XX"Do you feel jealous or possessive when your favourite is swept up in someone else?"

XX"For a self proclaimed dick, you're quite the gentleman. Oh, and by the way, I've never had that happen to me,"

S h eXXsmirked once more, only to scoff as the girl wandered off to join her brother.

XX"Bye, then. She sighed before standing and stretching, looking down towards Dimitri with a wan smile. "Well, then, Adonis. I'm afraid this party blows. I think I'mma make like a tree. " Expression bored, she gestured in the direction of her cabin with a silver-ringed thumb.

A n n i eXXhad never been the type to get caught up in drama, but even she could not help but watch the endless plot threads play out, nor could she avoid sensing the growing negativity of the party, as conflict loomed threateningly over every interaction.

I nXXall honesty, the bad vibes had started to stress her out, and she'd spent most of her time sipping on some peculiarly sweet beverage that Lise had pushed her way during Trinity and Theo's kiss. And then another. And another. Downing the remnants of the beverage, Annie silently rejoiced in feeling the bad vibes fall out of focus, blurring into something she could pretend was joyous rather than toxic.

A sXX Ani left the group to see her brother, Annie waved pointlessly at her retreating back, before leaning forward and placing her head in her hands. Her face, reflected in the bottle, was bright-eyed and rosy-cheeked, the latter a side-effect of the alcohol, the former a typical part of her features. With a finger, she twirled it, watching it spin with a soft smile, despite knowing that the game had already reached its conclusion.

T h eXX bottle slowed to a stop, pointing at the empty seat across from Annie, behind which a figure approached to lean across the circle.

XX"Annie, me and Gwen are going to walk back now, do you wanna come?"


T h eXX rising from the bottle, Annie hiccuped when she saw who it was, and after looking at him for a just a moment too long (easy, she assured herself, to blame on her dizziness... or maybe it was her dizziness. She wasn't too sure, in all honesty) she smiled. Widely. Liquid courage, it seemed, had gripped her.

XX"Yep!"

S h eXXstood up quickly, and a lightness flooded her head, causing her to stumble before she caught herself, giggling. Walking with only a slight wobble over to where Finley and and Gwen stood, she grinned once more, pointing wildly in the vague direction of the cabins.

XX"Let's go!"

After Nik scurried away to get the drinks Gwen felt a tad bit awkward. Without the boy who dragged her into the circle in the beginning, she couldn't help but feel a little out of place. Not to mention seeing Theo leave with Alex left a sad pit in her stomach, she hadn't even had the courage to talk to him, so why would she get her hopes up anyway. It was an irrational and girly crush that was probably never going to happen.

Her train of thought was disrupted when she felt a light hand on her shoulder and turned to see Finn, "Wanna head back?"
She breathed a tiny, but audible sigh of relief as Finn was a great excuse to leave the circle without looking like she had copped out. "Yes. Thank gods, I thought I was going to be stuck in this circle for forever..." She whispered back, a small grin on her face.

"Annie, me and Gwen are going to walk back now, do you wanna come?" A true gentleman. The quick thought reminded Gwen of the girl she had seen Finn talking with earlier, it was definitely a topic she was going to have to talk to him about. She got to her feet, dusting off the stray particles of sand that had clung to her legs and shorts from sitting down. Saying a quick goodbye to Em and some of the others she really didn't wait for Annie and Finn. If she was being honest the comfort of her bed just sounded too good to be true.

When they finally made it to the cabins she waved a sheepish goodbye to Annie, and offered Finn a small "Goodnight, I'll see you in the morning".

"I... never really thought of it that way." She was beautiful when she smiled. "Thank you". He was pleasantly surprised in how easy it was to talk to her, which was something that he had never experienced. So much so, that he couldn't control pretty much half the things that he said. It was a strange feeling.

Dom noticed the small bit of animosity when he asked her why she had come in the first place. "Sylas made me come." He watched her gaze shift to that of her brother's, sitting in the 'spin the bottle circle'. He inwardly cringed at the though, he could never imagine himself indulging in simplistic and pointless games. Sylas, for one looked quite self-indulged and was oddly grinning at the both of them when he made eye contact. He turned back to Sloane and gathered from the look on her face that they must've not been the best of siblings, there was definitely something off.

"Figured if I had to come, I shouldn't be utterly bored." She had a definite point, and had already completely beat Dom in the idea of 'surviving a party'. "What are you reading?" He asked quietly staring at the worn front cover of the book. "It's The Iliad. A book everyone should read, especially demigods." Dom watched as she flipped through the weathered pages carefully, she obviously was attached to the story. "It's a good read, but you have to read the Odyssey once you've finished it. The Iliad is about the Trojan War, while the Odyssey follows Odysseus after the war."

There was a small pause in her train of thought, he noticed her shift in thought, and was surprised when she took a step and held the book out to him. "You can borrow it... If you want." His expression probably came dumbfounded as she smiled at him waving the book in his direction. This was the first time someone had ever offered him to borrow something, he didn't know how to react. "I've read it like a hundred times."

He gently took the book from her hold and admired the cover for a moment looking up at her a rather goofy smile on his face. "T-thank you. I promise I'll take good care of it. Or at least try not to give it frostbite again". He glanced back at the group of partygoers and watched as the majority of them started to leave. It was an odd thought for him, in the beginning he wanted nothing more than to leave but now it was quite the opposite. "I guess I better head back" He shifted back and forth on his feet for a moment. Another thing he was terrible at, goodbyes. "It was lovely meeting you, hopefully we get to see each other again soon. I mean, I have to return the book so we'll have to- I guess it just depends on how long it takes me to read it" He needed to stop talking. His face flushed a bright red, and he took a step back clutching the book to his chest. "I'll see you around" He said quietly with a small smile before disappearing quite abruptly partially embarrassed about half the things that came out of his mouth.

When he finally made it back to his cabin he feel back into the bed, staring giddily at the ceiling. After a moment he grabbed the book and opened the cover running his thumb over the small pencil inscription, 'Sloane Astor'. He smiled before closing it and placing the book on his bedside table eventually giving into his tiredness and falling asleep.

Mateo could practically feel the vibe of the party quickly die as most of the campers started to loss interest in what was happened. He hated when parties lost their fire, there was nothing more boring than that. He leaned over to his sister, "Hey Adri, I'm going to go ahead and head back". With that he pushed himself up from the circle, dusting sand off of his pants waving a short goodbye to everyone.

He walked around the edge of the circle towards the exit of the beach not before stopping next to the boy he had laid eyes on the entire night. He leaned down next to him, his mouth dangerously close to Slyas's ear. "See you around, Sylas" He whispered with a smirk before getting up and leaving the beach.

When he got back to his cabin he quickly changed into a pair of loose Adidas pants and fell back on to his bed with a sigh. Even though the party hadn't been too exciting he was still exhausted, but it wasn't anything a little sleep couldn't fix. With that he buried himself into the fluffy covers and fell asleep immediately.

Once Gwen and Annie had both gotten up from their makeshift seats in the sand, Finley began to head for the clearing, making sure to keep pace with them both as he noticed Annie begin to wobble, before realising that she actually looked incredibly drunk. Rushing around Gwen to where Annie was, Finley places a hand on her back in an attempt to steady the tipsy demigod. With a semi-amused, semi-concerned smile on his face, Finley walks like this back to where Gwen and his cabins were. Looking over at his sister, Finley shoots her a look, "You head in Gwen, I'll walk Annie back." He says, knowing full well that he couldn't simply let the daughter of Apollo stumble back to her cabin alone. He wasn't a complete dick.

As he moves Annie in the direction of her cabin, just a couple more minutes walk away, Finley calls back over his shoulder, "Night sis, I'll be waking you bright and early tomorrow." He teases, knowing that would solicit at least a small groan out of the younger girl. Finley always woke before most of the other demigods in order to go for an early swim, something he did every single day. It helped keep his mind calm and gave the boy time to think.

Not forgetting Annie who was still stuck to his side, Finley makes sure he is steadying her properly as they walk, his hand around her waist to keep her from tripping. Once they arrived at her cabin, Finley released the girl, looking down into her eyes with that same, small smile. "Try and get a good sleep," He mutters, his voice low as they were the only two within the vicinity, most of the others having already gotten themselves tucked up in bed. "And drink lots of water, you'll thank me in the morning." He chuckles, giving her shoulder a squeeze before letting go so that she is able to get up the steps that led into her new home.

With that, Finley is gone. Having watched her get in safely, he felt assured that she would be perfectly okay until the morning. Relieved, Finley finally feels the tiredness settle in his mind, fogging his thoughts ever so slightly. Finley makes it back to his own cabin quickly, kicking off his shoes and falling down into bed. He didn't bother changing out of his current outfit since it was only a t-shirt and sweats anyway; comfortable enough to sleep in.

- - -


The next morning, Finley wakes bright and early, just as he always did. Immediately throwing on his swimming trunks, he then chucks a baggy shirt on and grabs his sandals, ready to head for the lake. Before he does so, Finley makes sure to check on his sister, knocking ever so lightly on her door, he lets himself in and is greeted by the sight of the girl fast asleep, tucked up ever so snug in bed. Typically, Finley got his sister up to go swimming with him, but this morning he made an exception. She'd had a pretty full on night and Finley didn't want her to be so shattered that she couldn't participate in the days events along with the other campers.

Exiting as quietly as possible, Finley is sure not to slam the door behind him as he jumps down the steps and sets his sights, finally, on the beach. Passing the small fire pit where the party had been last night, Finley looks at where just hours prior, the whole camp had been engaged in the festivities. How different it looked in the daylight. Burnt logs lay where a once full fire was and there was no one around but a few animals, curiously inspecting the tiny pieces of food that had been dropped during the party.

Smiling to himself, Finley thinks back on talking to the new girl as he reaches the waters edge, letting the freezing water lap at his exposed toes. Slipping off his shirt and sandals, Finley's mind then turns to Annie as he laughs softly to himself about how drunk she was. Sure that she'd be embarrassed this morning, Finley made a mental note not to bring it up with her, he didn't want the girl to feel bad.

Soon, his whole lower torso his emerged in the water, becoming familiar and comfortable within the icy lake. He swims out into the centre where it is so deep his feet cannot reach the bottom, and dives down, now exposing his face to the cold. It's peaceful under the water and Finley lets himself stay there - he felt safe.

Half an hour later and Finley was still swimming, alternating between doing laps and seeing how long he could stay under the water. It capped at around 15 minutes which, while impressive, was not long enough in Finley's books; it was something he needed to work more on. It wasn't up until this point that he even thought about breakfast. Feeling his stomach rumble reminded Finley that he definitely needed to grab something to eat, especially if they were to be doing some tiring training exercises today as he believed they were.

Leaving the water, Finley almost felt sad that he couldn't spend all his time within it's depths, basking in the safety of his father's domain. But alas, he still needed sustenance. Making a quick pitstop back at his cabin, Finley switches out his trunks for some try sweatpants and pulls on some trainers, before heading back out into the early morning sun and making his way to the hall where breakfast was just about to be served.

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.

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.
