D E C O R U S


h e i g h t x // x5'5"

w e i g h t x // x120 lbs

h a i r x // xWith coarse black hair that shifts to brunette in the sunlight, Ani clearly favours her father when it comes to her hair type. Often leaving her chest length mess of hair to do as it pleases, Ani will simply brush it in the mornings and leave it alone. On occasion Ani has been known to tie her hair into particularly messy ponytails, although this is mostly just when she is training or in combat.

e y e s x // xAni has almond shaped eyes, so deeply brown that they look black. The distinctively Hawaiian shape and colour that is somewhat off putting in it's intensity, sets them apart from most other bland brown eyes.

o d d i t i e s x // xWhile she certainly wouldn't call them an oddity, Ani's face is marred with a multitude of freckles, as well as some slightly larger and darker beauty marks. Freckles aren't common where she is from, so many people at home often commented on how odd it was for Ani to have obtained them. She believes they are from her mother - or at least the beauty marks must be.

a p p e a r a n c e x // xBeing the daughter of Aphrodite, it's no surprise that Ani would be exceptionally beautiful. However, what was not expected was the kind of beauty the child would possess. While she isn't your average blonde haired, blue eyed, model height woman, Ani has a very different beauty, entirely unique to herself. Her skin is sunkissed in a way that it almost seems to glow, and she is always ready with a smile that can make even the gloomiest of people crack one back. Her style is simple, but complimentary. Often choosing colours that work well with her complexion, even when she doesn't try too hard, Ani is always well put together. Ani has a beauty that makes people stop and look. Just for a moment.

c u p i dx // x Ani may have little strength when it comes to people's desires,
but she does have some capabilities when it comes to love. Particularly through her singing, which has earned her the nickname 'siren'.


a p p e a r a n c ex m o r p h i n gx // x Ani is exceptionally adept at morphing her appearance, and it is by far her strongest ability. However, it takes a lot of energy and concentration for her to morph, therefore she is exhausted easily.

s e x u a lxd e s i r ex // x Suprisingly, Ani is not an incredibly sexual being, unlike her mother. She has little strength when it comes to manipulating someone's desire for her, or anyone. This is something she doesn't really mind though.

c h a r m i n gx // x Like her mother and siblings, Ani possesses that magnetic personality and subtle charm that immediately draws people in.

g o l d e nxv o i c ex // x Ani's voice is soft and wispy, but nevertheless beautiful when she is singing.

m u l t i l i n g u a lx // x Able to speak all the languages of love, Ani favours Italian as she feels it rolls of the tongue wonderfully.

v a n i t yx // x With beauty comes hubris and Ani is no exception. She cares just a little bit too much about her appearance, which is ironic because her hair, in particular, is always a perfect mess.

f i c k l ex // x Ani is a passionate soul, but certainly not a loyal one. At least not when it comes to lovers. Ani's attention drifts constantly and it's nearly impossible to keep her attention for long periods of time.

d e l i c a t ex // x Unfortunately for Ani, she was not built to be a warrior. As she always says, she's a lover not a fighter. Ani's soft skin bruises like a peach and in hand-to-hand combat she is sure to lose.



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


r e j e c t i o nx // x Being the daughter of the Goddess of Love, Ani isn't used to having her advances rejected. Whenever she is, Ani has a hard time dealing with it and honestly, doesn't know what to do. However, what she truly fears is finding the one person she truly loves with all her heart, and having them reject her.

d i s a p p o i n t m e n tx // x While many may not see the ultra sensitive side of Ani, she is - in fact - incredibly fragile emotionally. The thought of disappointing those that she loves frightens Ani.

w a rx // x As Ani is awful at hand-to-hand combat, it seems fitting that she'd be terrified at the thought of having to actually fight someone. War scares her not only because she can't stand the thought of losing a loved one, but Ani is also afraid of death herself.

P E R S O N A L I T A T E
xxxxxxxxxxxxโ€ข x sensitive x โ€ข x loving x โ€ข x passionate x โ€ข x fickle x โ€ข


You'd think that as a daughter of Aphrodite, Ani would have better control over her emotions. However, she's always been sensitive, since childhood. Perhaps it helps her be better in tune with others emotions, but it also means that Ani takes things to heart very easily; while she rarely holds grudges, it doesn't take much to upset the girl. Due to this, a lot of people have taken to babying Ani which only reinforces her sensitivity as she's never been told to suck it up or get over it.
Now, it's not like Ani goes around crying constantly if someone doesn't like the way her hair looks, but even things as simple as other peoples emotions are strong enough to influence Ani's. For example, if someone around her is sad, she feels that emotion so strongly that it almost passes on to her and then she will become saddened. Ani feels things very intensely, so it really should be no surprise that she'd be such a delicate soul.

Ani is far more like her mother in the sense that she has a huge heart. Ani loves very easily, and very quickly, which is not necessarily a good thing. This opens the young girl up to a lot of manipulation and some people take such great advantage of this, that Ani has learnt not to trust people too easily, even those she has a deep love for. However Ani has a lot of time for those she deems trustworthy and she places all her faith in them, the betrayal of someone Ani trusts would quite possibly be the biggest blow she could be dealt.

Passion runs through the veins of all of Aphrodite's children, and Ani is no exception. Anything she does, she does with so much passion that it can - at times - be overwhelming. When Ani talks about something she loves, there's this bubble of excitement that grows and grows inside her and makes it hard for the person she's talking to not to fall in love. Unfortunately, Ani hasn't learnt how to fully control her 'cupid' power, meaning that some of this could be due to the fact she is using her abilities - unbeknownst to her.

Fickleness is perhaps Ani's worst trait. It's hard to keep the girls attention for long because her eyes wander and her mind drifts to other plains. Sometimes people comment on how they're surprised she's not Hypnos' daughter by the way her mind always seems to be elsewhere, almost like she's in a dream. When it comes to lovers, Ani does not do commitment. Partially because she's scared, although that's something the girl would never admit. She doesn't see the point in monogamy when there are so many beautiful people in this world. The amount of attention Ani gets, however, doesn't help with her mounting vanity. She doesn't stop to constantly stare at her reflection, but it's obvious the girl definitely cares a lot about her appearance.

H I S T O R I A R U M


Ani started her life in Honolulu's only orphanage. It was a large, cold place, despite the constant sun from the warm Hawaiian weather. No one knew much about her parentage, not even the orphanage staff. Ani had arrived overnight, a heavy knock on the door luckily alerted a member of staff to her presence, or the baby would've been out in the night air for hours. That member of staff would soon become Ani's closest and only friend. She was an elderly lady named Nana, which quickly became very fitting as she took on Ani as if the girl were her granddaughter. Being tiny since birth, the staff worried she was premature and so had to keep a close eye on the girl. As she grew, however, it became apparent that Ani was strong despite her size - not physically but mentally. Ani was rather adept at drawing people in and captivating them which soon earned her the favour of most of the orphanage staff and she was quickly the favourite (not that they could ever admit that).

Having arrived with nothing but a name, Kalani - meaning 'the heavens'. The staff would come to find that there was not a more fitting name for the little girl. She was a gift from the heavens, however what they didn't realise was quite how literal the name was.

As Ani continued to grow, she became increasingly more and more interested in her family. Above her little rickety framed bed hung a drawing of a beautiful woman Ani had seen in a dream and was convinced it was her mother. This woman began frequenting her dreams and while she would say nothing to the little girl, Ani felt such a strong connection that she had to be the woman who gave Ani up at birth. Nana became increasingly more concerned about Ani's obsession with this figment of a woman and tried to steer her toward hobbies that could consume her time rather than giving her hours to think about her parents. This was where Ani found her passion of singing.
After try and failing with countless instruments, Ani finally found that her voice was the best instrument of all. It caught people's attention like nothing ever had, and other children in the orphanage would come to Ani, asking her to sing them a lullaby as they drifted off to sleep.

During her seventeenth year at the orphanage, Ani would fall in love. He was tall and handsome, working just outside at a small flower stall, Ani would watch the man from her window as he sold husbands 'forgive me' bouquets and new lovers the sweetest red roses. Ani's obsession changed from her dream mother to this new, mysterious flower seller. Flowers quickly became Ani's favourite thing and she would fill up her room with roses, sunflowers and Hawaii's national flower - the hibiscus. Frequenting his stall in the hopes that one day he would stop and ask her just why she needed so many flowers.

For months, that day never came, until Hawaii was entering winter - which really was no winter at all, the breeze still held a warm current and the sky was still a bright blue. Ani sat on the steps that led out from the orphanage, singing to herself as she often did. Hearing this, the man suddenly felt the urge to find out who that beautiful voice belonged to. Following all the way to Ani's feet, he smiled at her; the first time he'd ever even properly acknowledged Ani. She felt her heart melt at that toothy grin, I love this man! Was all she could think. Days passed by and the pair spent all their time together, Ani would sing to him and he would fall just that little bit more in love. She thought that he just loved her voice, what Ani didn't realise was that he loved her because her voice was making him. As soon as she stopped singing, he would stiffen a little, almost as if he had fallen out of a trance.

Days turned into months and as Ani neared her eighteenth birthday, she knew that she would have to find a place to live outside of the orphanages walls, but she was frightened, she'd lived in the same little room all her life and couldn't stand the thought of leaving - especially because she'd have to leave Nana. The woman was old and frail by now, and Ani feared that leaving would break Nana's heart beyond repair. But what could she do? Ani had to leave; she was too old to stay. It was then the best idea struck her, Ani quickly ran to her lover, asking him to move to a new home with her, where they could look after her sickly Nana and live together happily.

He rejected her. Ani was confused, what had she done? They seemed so in love before and now, he didn't want anything to do with her. He told her she was a witch, an evil witch who had put him under her spell for too long. Heartbroken that the man she loved had rejected her so harshly, she packed up her belongings and left. Not wanting to stay in this awful place any longer. Ani left her friends, her ex-lover and even Nana behind her as she went. Leaving the elderly lady with only a promise of her return and a kiss on the forehead before she vanished.

Lost and broken hearted, Ani had no clear plan on where she was even going. The girl walked for hours until exhaustion washed over her, finding refuge in a small bed and breakfast, Ani payed the owners the little money she had saved to keep her there for a few nights. However, on the first night of her stay, as Ani drifted off to sleep, she was once again greeted by that face she had seen so long ago. There was a place, her mother told her, where she could go and be with people like herself. What was she? Ani asked the figment. A Demigod.

Resolving to find this place her mother had told her about, and perhaps even see Aphrodite in person for once; Ani used her newfound abilities and a little extra money to make her way to Camp Athens.

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

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

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

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

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

X Adrianna Lockwood
XXxxxxxxiiiXXX Hera | Style | #a50404
____________________________________________
____________________________________________

Today was the night! Adrianna had been counting down the days till tonight's bonfire. Every minute at camp seemed to be filled with training and making connections and allies and junk, but tonight was the night she could be free. It wasn't like this was her first party, but a party among fellow demigods had to be different than a regular human party. She took care of her skin care regime in the shower. The Poseidon kids were so lucky they didn't need to worry about drying their hair, something she deeply envied on days like today. Her shower routine could be long, but every step helped to keep a face like her looking its best. Beautification can be fun too, although some girls at this camp would disagree. 'Tonight is going to be fun!' she thought as she aimlessly walked throughout the Hera children cabin.

Next, and most importantly, came her outfit. She needed her leading fashion consultant on the case! "MAAATTTYYY! Help me choose my outfit!" Mateo was already her best friend and favorite person at camp. He is also her half-brother which only strengthened her feelings towards him. He understood her in ways the others didn't. Plus, the whole lying thing wasn't a thing with them. He is the only person she's ever completely honest with. All of her childhood, Adrianna wished for a sibling and it only took eighteen years to finally get her wish. The two's favorite thing to talk about was clothes so playing dress up together for a party was more sibling bonding time! "I'm thinking black and maroon for my colors, maybe throwing in some gold jewelry?" The closet space was limited in the camp so Adrianna's full wardrobe was left back in New York. That didn't mean she didn't try. Her closet almost resembled the ones in old cartoons that are at risk of exploding if you try to open them. Her outfit was already planned, but the sibling seal of approval was necessary.

"What do you think? Hot or extra hot?" She did a little spin in front of her brother, then striking a pose with a wink. She looked amazing, maybe a little dressed up for the party. It can't hurt to look your best. "I promised I'd meet up with Kalani and walk over there together. Do you wanna meet up with us later? I already laid out some amazing outfit choices for you." She air kissed him before walking out the door. "I'll see you there! Look hot!" she called over her shoulder.

Adrianna could already hear the music from the bonfire as she made her way to the children of Aphrodite's cabin. Nothing could keep Adrianna away from a social event. Part of her wanted to head straight there and get in on the festivities, but she wasn't about to ditch her friend right off the bat. Later in the evening was a definitely a possibility especially if any of the cuter demigods caught her attention. Plenty of them have already made an impression, but nobody was her main target. 'Who knows? Tonight, if the guy plays their cards right...' She giggled to herself thinking about it.

Finally arriving at Kalani's cabin, she waltzed in their like she owned the place. "KALANI! ARE YOU READY TO PARTY? she called out, not bothering to quiet down. If Aphrodite's kids weren't getting ready for a party, are they really her children?

I Dimitri Costas
xii Demeter | Style | #04a549
____________________________________________
____________________________________________

Dimitri's days started out the same every day. Wake up, morning run, eat, train, eat again, talk to the campers, and then sleep. He never bothered to change up his routine. Some people admired his consistency, others said he needed to let loose more. If only they knew what letting loose meant for him. Today was no different, except everyone was talking about the bonfire tonight. Parties were neutral for him. Dimitri liked the large amounts of people and socializing. The drama and drunks were the negatives in his mind. To him, it was a necessary thing to keep things calm at camp. Some campers complained they didn't get any 'play' time so having an event like this would keep the masses happy.

Dimitri stepped out of his shower, shaking off some of the leftover water. Normally, he wouldn't have tried to put in any extra work to his appearance, but tonight required a bit more grooming than a regular training day. With a quick swish of the hand, his soaking hair was drying thanks to a burst of wind. A perk of the Demeter children, never have to worry about a hairdryer. Clothing was next and what Dimitri despised most. He understood dressing nice, but it never felt natural. Why look good if you can't function? Girls made this a bigger mystery, thankfully he never worried about this with Callie. 'Callie... I haven't thought of her in a while.' The girlfriend he left back in Greece hadn't been on his mind lately. Maybe it was due to being busy or worrying about any of the demigods or gods knowing his weakness, but she hadn't been on his mind. A certain grey haired woman might've had something to do with it...

After finally deciding on his party attire, Dimitri groaned. A part of him didn't want to go, but if he didn't he wouldn't be playing a good role model. Being a loner wasn't always a bad thing, but getting out and meeting people builds bonds. Bonds equal friendship, friendship equals community, and community equals peace. Or chaos. There are so many variables. He shook off these negative thoughts. If he left the cabin then he'd have to go. He had a few budding friendship he could build up tonight and see Lise tonight, no doubt she'd miss a party. Come to think of it, Athena's children's cabin isn't too far from Demeter's. They could walk over there together. There's always safety in numbers right? "Exactly. I'm asking for her benefit not mine. Purely, looking out for her." It wasn't a complete lie, but not the complete truth either.

Dimitri knocked on the door of the genius's cabin, before cracking the door open. "Hey, I was heading over to the bonfire. Did you wanna join me, I guess? Just offering you don't have to." The offer sounded awful in his monotone voice. Dimitri sounded like he didn't care at all, when really he was trying to say something semi-normal. Typically, demigod luck.

Kalani had been waiting for the bonfire all day. As excitable as ever, she'd already gotten her outfit planned out and makeup sorted before the afternoon. Deciding to fill her time from then until the party, Kalani lays back against her bedframe and daydreams about all the shenanigans she and her friends would get up to. Already having promised Adrianna that she would go with her to the bonfire, Kalani had also told Annie that she'd meet her there. The thought of being surrounded by her two closest friends at camp as well as a lot of other super cute people that she'd undoubtably flirt with almost overwhelmed Kalani with excitement. Gods did she love a party.

As the evening drew closer, Kalani slipped out of the boring casual clothes she had been wearing all day, and into the bathroom adjacent to her room. Hopping into the shower, Kalani hums to herself as she washes, her mind still racing with all the possible outcomes of tonight. Once washed and dried, Kalani applies the makeup she had preplanned - a slick of dusky red lipstick and some mascara - before throwing on her party outfit. Beaming at her reflection in the mirror, Kalani wiggles her hips as she checks out the fit of her new denim skirt.

Fluffing her hair so that her beachy waves fell just how she liked them, Kalani pressed play on the little speaker that sat on her bedside table, the one thing she had brought from home. It had been a birthday gift from Nana years ago and was something that reminded her of the woman who raised her. Someone Kalani was afraid she may never see again.

Shaking these negative thoughts out of her head, Kalani focuses her mind back onto the present - she had a party to go to! While Kalani had been hoping to spend it with Wes and get to know him a little more, she had seen the elder male walking out of his cabin earlier - most likely to go see Trinity. Wes may have never told Kalani about his crush on the daughter of Ares, but it was obvious, at least to Kalani. He goes all puppy-eyes around her. It almost makes Kalani giggle a little, she deeply loves her big brother but he could be so soppy sometimes.

It didn't matter, anyway, and Kalani turned the music up a little in an attempt to stop her mind drifting. Dancing along to the song, she continues with minor touchups until everything is exactly how she likes it. Kalani isn't exactly a narcissist but she does love to look her very best.

Before Kalani's able to wonder where Adrianna is, the daughter of Hera comes storming into her room. "Dri!" She squeals, giving her friend a tight hug before answering her question, "I was born ready," Kalani giggles, giving her friend a twirl so that she can assess her outfit, "What do ya think?" She asks before taking in what Adrianna was wearing. Placing her hand on her chest as she feigns being faint, Kalani continues. "Damn Dri, you look amazing," Her smile expanding as she talks, "If we weren't friends, I'd definitely be wanting your number."

With their dramatic greetings over and done with, Kalani grabs her friends hand "C'mon let's get down there before they start spin the bottle!" And with that Kalani waltzes out the door, Adrianna in tow; their fingers still interlocked.

"Hey, I was heading over to the bonfire. Did you wanna join me, I guess? Just offering you don't have to."

She had been supposed to meet Annie to walk to the bonfire, and there was a slight twinge of guilt before Lise responded to the 'Adonis' outside her door. A slight twinge, mind you, and one that was immediately followed by a shrug of, 'Oh, fuck it, she'll understand. And it's not like she gets angry at anyone anyway.

Such is why, when Dimitri knocked oh-so-shyly on door, and offered her oh-so-chivalrously some company for the walk, she replied with a zest and enthusiasm synonymous with her usual nature.

Just as he spoke, the door handle tore out of Dimitri's grasp, pulled away by the silver-haired demon on the other side. Eyes winged and expression wily, Lise looked up at the grecian with a wide grin.

"Oh, Adonis, you know you don't have to ask me twice."

Closing the door behind her, Lise smoothly slipped passed Dimitri, reaching the bottom stop before stopping and looking back up at him over her shoulder, and shooting him a look of, 'Coming?'

She had never been one to hem and haw, nor to mince words or play coy. She was Lise, after all.

She was impatient, and she wanted to party.
_________________________________________________________

Annie tutted at the internet message on her phone (thank Gods for wifi, what with the lack of phone service), more amused than upset.

sorry, tall, dark and handsome's come a-knocking, soooo~ c u at the bonfire <3

Annie was hardly shocked by the behaviour; she may not know Lise especially well, but it was fairly obvious that she was a fickle creature with quite simple desires. If anything, Annie admired that part of Lise that was so brutally unapologetic, so consistently decisive. Annie was the opposite, always sorry for something, and always troubled by the burden of making choices.

One choice that had not been difficult to make, however, was whether or not to attend the bonfire party. As someone who walked a strange line between introvert and extrovert, Annie did enjoy parties, and she was eager to get to know her fellow campers. Perhaps new faces were exactly what the camp needed, to start afresh, to rise from the ashes.

She hoped so, the past year had set a gloom over the camp, and even her unrivalled healing abilities could not remedy the wounds left by 2017's terrible events.

Arriving at the edge of the party, she searched the crowd for a familiar face, and spotted it almost immediately. It was hard not to notice such a face, considering how remarkably lovely it was.

Walking over to Kalani and Adrianna, the demigod grinned, offering a double wave.

"Hey! ... Woah, well, you guys look amazing."

"You are your mother's daughter and I'm definitely borrowing that outfit sometime." It was a cute outfit, but more on the simple side than Adrianna was used to. She wasn't about to tell Lani that though. Little lies like that weren't uncommon for Audrey, a curse of being one of Hera's children. Well, what Kalania doesn't know won't hurt her.

The two girls held hands as they walked towards the bonfire. It was something the two usually did together. Adrianna never thought of it as something romantic, more of how you'd hold hands with a sibling. Some campers have commented on it, but a glare from her silenced them. It wasn't like Adrianna was annoyed at the thought of being considered homosexual by the campers. The fact that two girls couldn't be friendly without thinking something else was happening was rude. Why do people always make assumptions? Speaking of homosexuals, she noticed Nikolaos had arrived. He's the little brother she had always dreamed about and the two got close within their first week at camp. His sweet yet awkward demeanor was so adorable. While he hadn't acknowledged it himself, Adrianna picked up on his sexuality. Obviously, better than Nik since he didn't even know. Adrianna didn't know how to approach the topic, but knew she'd try her best for him. Adrianna gave him a wave and her best grin.

"Hey! ... Woah, well, you guys look amazing." Cue, another cutest camper! The fact that Nik and Annie were siblings seemed too perfect. They're the kindest people at camp and Adrianna was proud to say she got along with both.
"I wish I could I pull off layers like you can! You look absolutely amazing!~" Yes, Adrianna may have been exageratting, but the girl did look cute. "I thought Lise was coming with you- Ah I see now." The appearance of Lise and Dimitri didn't go unnoticed by Adrianna. Call it a child of the goddess of marriage thing, but she could tell the different between potential couple and two friends. It wasn't really a power, but Adrianna will gladly claim it is. Interesting combination the two of them... One of the biggest personalities at camp with the one with the least personality. Something she'll catalogue for later, or gossip a bit about. Probably both.

The bonfire was getting more and more crowded. Music was playing, food and alcohol being served, and, Adrianna's personal favorite, many attractive people. Adrianna was fine just hanging out with the girls, dancing. However, she wouldn't turn down some TLC from an interesting guy. So far, nobody was worth her attention. She had plenty offers, some more pushy than others. One guy thought bringing her a beer meant she had to dance with him. A quick nod of her head and that guy suddenly decided he needed to eat. Influence is such a great ability. One guy did make her wonder. He sat on the outside of the bonfire, frown on his very attractive face. He looked like a challenge, something Audrey couldn't ignore. "Girls, I'll see you in a bit. I found a challenge, byyyye." With her farewell, Adrianna went towards Mr. Hughson. She was aware of his parentage and the history at the previous camp. Was it potentially dangerous? Absolutely, but she doubted he'd try anything at a crowded party. She quickly grabbed two, cold beers from a cooler before approaching.

"I'm pretty sure parties are for having fun, Mr. Frown." Adrianna teased, holding out the beer to Mason. "Maybe we need to loosen you up." She let a girlish chuckle, battling her eyes.

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.

"Oh man, Ken Doll has been upgraded to loser. I don't know if the nicknames could get much better than that."

She grinned wickedly as he gave a playful bump. Oh she was always packed with nicknames for Wes but loser was super temporary.

"Pretty sure that was old asshole Wes who said that," he replied. Before she could open her mouth to object that there were separate Wesley's, he humored the idea. "Could you handle all of this? This arm has been doing the work of two arms for quite sometime now. I may not be a fighter, but I do have some muscles."

She smiled barely able to repress a playful roll of her eyes. โ€œI'm aware of the swell in your arm, Ken. I pick my targets you know and I do like a little challenge.โ€

"I'll make you a deal. I'll arm wrestle you, and if I win... You go on a real official date with me." The words almost brought her to a complete halt but she settled on slowing her pace. "And if you win...?"

โ€œAn official date,โ€ she echoed. For some reason the concept held a heavy weight. Probably because she didn't date in the history of ever and her mind raced way ahead of time, at awkward family dinners, comparing her to his flawless ex. โ€œSounds serious.โ€ She was able to snap out of her little nightmare and purse her lips. โ€œIf I win, you be my slave for 24 hours. I know, bit of a lack of imagination on my part,โ€ she admitted with a tut. โ€œBut it's flexible for me.โ€

It felt like she had laid a foot at the bonfire when that one voice rang above the rest. "Spin the bottle anyone?"

Trinity side glanced to Wes. A game right in his domain and more than half the campers would be upset if the Son of Aphrodite didn't play. Most eligible bachelor not playing spin the bottle. In what world did that make sense. Trinity lifted his arm off her shoulder gently. โ€œYou can go teach the freshies how it's done.โ€ It would be good for everyone to just sink into their comfort zones again, you know, Aphrodites children loving and kissing, encouraging that party spirit and games, and Ares children fighting. Trinity not caring who he meshed lips with. โ€œWho knows, you might end up on Alex,โ€ she dropped casually with a shrug. She didn't even feel bitter or cold when she said it. โ€œLots of, uh, you know...'cuties' this year.โ€

Trinity sucked in a breath doing her own double-take. Did she just refer to the new batch of demigods as cuties? Oh well. Trinity snatched a drink from the cooler not caring what foresaken flavor or type it was. But when she did see beer, her stomach and head flooded with disappointment and a pinch of anger for the lack of variety. Trinity didn't know where she left Wes in her pace off for a drink and escape, but she felt she had to keep moving with purpose.

She saw the spunky figure of Harleen, thankfully on her own and sat herself beside her. โ€œHarley,โ€ she greeted.

Harleen was doing the rounds with her eyes when they landed on Raven. She gave a nod of acknowledgement to her before Raven gained some company. Harley would have to express at a later time that she was glad she came.

โ€œHarley.โ€ Some tight leggings and grey shirt came into view, then the face followed.

โ€œPuddin'.โ€ Harley grinned wickedly and even gave a sparkling wink. Jokes aside, Trinity had a way of exciting Harley. It was like she never knew what she was going to get or what would happen. The two both had competitive and daring bones so it was a compelling and energetic mix. To Harley anyway. She shuffled a little closer to Trinity like she had a secret to share, her eyes downcast on their shoes. โ€œDare or dare?โ€ She turned to face the fiery blonde with another grin.

Trinity shook her head slowly with a hint of a smile. โ€œNope. I know how that story goes.โ€

Harley did a pout to the quality of dramatic arts. Expectedly, an exaggerated sad face meant nothing to the camp's warrior's queen so Harley began a quiet build-up of the chicken dance, the imitation getting bigger and louder until Trinity would resort to change her mind.

A gentle elbow to her side confirmed her master plan had worked. โ€œShush. Fine. What am I doing?โ€

โ€œWell, as tempted as I am to dare you to join the bottle of lip-locking, I won't do that.โ€ Harley stroked her non existent mustache, pondering what could be amusing for her, and challenging for Trinity. โ€œI would like to see you flirt. You know, really try. Or be as charming as you can be.โ€

โ€œI am charming!โ€ Trinity protested. Harley noticed the first beer had been knocked back quickly, Trinity now twisting an empty bottle to stand in the sand. โ€œI can be anyway. You know, Wes likes my company, for whatever reason. Theo once liked me. We were like...โ€ she twisted her index and middle finger around each other.

โ€œWhy doesn't he like you anymore?โ€ Harley asked, concerned.

โ€œMore charming people entered camp.โ€ She laughed.

โ€œOh, Trinity, that's not like...โ€ Harley broke off with a smile and sighed out softly. That was one of Trinity's endearing traits. Not really reading and responding to signals. โ€œI think he used to really, really like you. Now he's looking for someone else.โ€

Trinity's lips were paused agape and her eyebrows furrowed. โ€œOoohh. Damn.โ€

โ€œSo are you going to play charming or dance with anybody of your choosing.โ€ Since she was a good friend she was just throwing some options out there.

"How is camp treating you so far? what do you think of the bonfire? If you've got a favorite song Ajax might have it on his playlist."

โ€œSame as it is everybody else,โ€ she observed towards his first question. โ€œI think it's like a bonfire should be,โ€ she noted secondly. It had the fire, it had the food and booze, the young attendants so it was standard. Thirdly, she looked towards the renowned son of Zeus and the other campers that gravitated towards him. Even if she did have a song request, she wouldn't want to risk hurting their bubble wrapped ego, nor approach the number of people he reeled in. โ€œSomehow I don't think so,โ€ she remarked simply.

"Have you met my sister?" he asked next as if he could read the chances of her approaching Ajax and that congregation of people.

Evelyn followed to whom he spoke, and a smile crept across her lips. The youngest and most sour demigod among them, ironically. โ€œAs delightful as she looks, no, I haven't.โ€ She was going to leave it as that but in the spirit of socialization and parties and honesty, and considering she was half-blood and sister. โ€œHowever, she's on my list. I think those that are more...rough have endured a lot.โ€ Evelyn partly wished she could go up to the girl take her hands and grant her a different perception of the people in the world or turn her luck around, but that wouldn't work out so well. Firstly the physical contact, and second changing perceptions was not possible.

โ€œMcKenna and Duke, right?โ€ Evelyn's finger swayed between the two. โ€œI'm Evelyn. You can call me Eve if you're compelled to.โ€ She held out her a hand for a shake.

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.

ImageMason watched Andy travel over to Ajax and mock him behind his back. Exactly what a normal girl would do to lightly tease her boyfriend. He'd probably turn around and give her a smooch and it'd be all 'love, love, happy couple, everybody forget I failed as a leader and boyfriend.' Still, it wasn't Mason's business. Just like it wasn't his business to tell the sweet little happy couple they weren't going to last. He didn't need foresight or to be a child of Aphrodite to know that.

The bitter thoughts came to an abrupt end when another female approached. Rather than a fiery blonde, it was an impressively dressed and done up, Adrianna. She was always a looker but tonight, she had bonus points. "I'm pretty sure parties are for having fun, Mr. Frown," had been her way of greeting him, with a peace offering being a beer. Mason took it. "Maybe we need to loosen you up."

"Okay," he began, a smile spreading across his lips, "first off your nickname generating needs work. Second, we really do and alcohol seems a good way to get there." He popped the cap off the bottle but paused before bringing it to his lips. "I mean as long as you're not trying to take advantage of me in a drunk state." Mason smirked at her and took a swig.

"Parties are also about losing inhibitions then having alcohol or that bad friend to blame it on," he added matter-of-factly and shrugged innocently. Mason overheard Kalani's spin the bottle suggestion on cue and laughed. He had called it in the beginning. "Exhibit A."

Mason paid one look to the circle gathering and saw how many awaiting and expecting eyes were on Adrianna. That was the only problem with prom queens like herself, they attracted too much attention. Still, none of them thought to physically approach her with him there. It's not like he could kill demigods with a touch, just their mortal relatives. "I don't think they're gonna start without you." He threw his head towards the circle.

Initially his mind was made on joining such a game. It wouldn't be worth the experience and he wasn't overly keen to kiss anybody and hadn't been in a long time, but somebody had advised him to make friends and people achieved that by taking part in games and activities. Plus, it had been that long maybe he forgot how to kiss and this would be good practice. Mason made his way to the circle and fell in wherever vacancy was. "Suggester spins first, right?" he said towards Kalani. There weren't a great deal many rules in spin the bottle but he was pretty sure that's how it started.

After what happened last year, Alex hadn't gotten the chance to see or speak to her best friend since they all got back, what with all the preparations for the new campers, and still coming to terms with last year. She made a mental note of seeing him soon, then took her drink from Theo. She smiled at him as a thank you.

Hearing Katlani mention Spin the Bottle had brought on a moment of nostalgia, a game she hadn't played since childhood. It made Alex move in towards the group that was slowly gathering for the game. She side glanced at the others. Mason had started to move towards the circle with Adrianna. Of course, he'd team up with Wonder Barbie. He no longer had Jenn or Daniel after all.

Daniel... she missed his lively nature. Camp still felt dead without him. If only she could have gotten the chance to say goodbye, or to at least have given him the time of day before the war. They needed this game, they needed to have fun for once. "I'm in."

Feeling her brother's eyes on her, she looked at him and began to laugh. Andy was behind him. Mocking him.

Of course his little sister wouldn't turn down the opportunity to play Spin the Bottle, especially if there was a chance to get a kiss from Duke. Hearing her laugh, he frowned, "What?" he asked, then turned around the second he felt someone behind him. He had caught Andy mocking him. "You're lucky you are cute." he told her, stroking the pad of his thumb against her soft cheek. He looked past her for a second or more, his eyes on Mason. "Will you be playing spin the bottle?" he asked in an almost whisper, then looked down at Andy.

The thought of Mason getting the chance to kiss her during a game wasn't the best image to have struck in his head. "I won't stop you if you want to." he told her. What could one kiss during an agreed game do? it was harmless fun with nothing to it. Well, at least it would mean something to some of them.

When Mason took the beer from her hand, she knew she was in. Especially once he smiled. "My nicknames may suck, but they got you to smile." Adrianna took a swig from her beer, enjoying the taste."And I'll only take advantage if you want me to. I like my guys sober normally, but I can make an exception."

Adrianna let out a soft laugh before taking a brief glance around the rest of the party. It seemed like most of the campers had arrived. She had heard Kalani talk about spin the bottle and Audrey never missed the chance at a party game. Hopefully, Mr. Mysterious next to her would join in. There was a chance, but some campers didn't like Hades's son. Being the son of the god of death can be terrifying, but Audrey wasn't worried. The last thing he would do was kill somebody at a public event. Her love of attractive men could be her downfall with this one.

Audrey could feel the eyes on her as the circle for spin the bottle grew. It was both flattering and a bit annoying. Her minor popularity at the camp was fun and being the center of attention was even better, but it can be difficult when she's trying to do something. Mason being the current something. None the less, she couldn't leave her peers waiting. Seeing her brother sit down only added to it. Mason must've picked up on it too. "I don't think they're gonna start without you." Audrey put on a playful pout. "The curse of being loved." She joked. "Why not join in? I thought parties were about 'losing inhibitions.'" Throwing his words back in his face brought a huge grin to her face. "Plus, you might get lucky." Audrey left before she could hear his response.

Adrianna sat next to her brother, making sure to sit ladylike. Flashing any of these guys was the last thing she wanted. The group was still growing, adding the Zeus siblings and a few others. Adrianna tried not to beam when she noticed Mason decided to join. Maybe tonight would go her way. Audrey leaned onto her brother, whispering in his ear. "So, who do you want to land on you?"

Dimitri didn't hesitate to follow after Lise, trying to keep in step so he wouldn't fall behind. Dimitri wished she shared her excitement at the idea of the party. All the campers looked like they were having fun as he approached. He saw Theo acting as the camp bartender. Dimitri made a mental note to go see what he was serving later. Some alcohol might do a bit of good for him, as long as he didn't drink too much.

Dimitri listened as Lise talked, nodding and making a rare comment if it felt necessary. The demigod liked to let the other campers talk and Dimitri's negativity wasn't always a great conversation starter. He liked listening to Lise talk. It was fun to watch her talk so animatedly. Dimitri always found it refreshing to find people who had such high energy like her, maybe it was partly due to balancing out his own lack of energy. Who knows?

"You know Kalani and stuff, right?" 'One of Aphrodite's children, I believe.' Dimitri thought. He noticed the dark haired girl standing over near Annie and Adrianna. He knew of the trio standing in front of him. He enjoyed their company, but he wouldn't say he was especially close with any of them. The girls were nice, Annie the most. He nodded at the group of girls, noticing a bit of sadness in Kalani's eyes when they approached. She seemed happy whenever the two interacted before, similar with Lise. He'd have to ask about that later.

Hearing about the game 'spin the bottle,' Dimitri was intrigued. He'd never played the game, but had heard of it. Callie explained it to him once when he saw it on television for the first time. On television, the game usually forced two people who liked each other but wouldn't admit it to kiss, something Dimitri never quite understood. Why force someone to kiss? It didn't sound like fun. Despite his dislike of the game, Dimitri took a seat by Lise. It didn't hurt to be involved and maybe nobody would land on him. Although, he would mind if the genius beside him landed on him. "Shall we begin?"

McKenna lingered awkwardly at the edge of the party; she could literally sense someone judging her. Probably Duke. McKenna would be lying if she said they hated each other - they did have some similarities, and deep down, McKenna was probably fond of her half-brother in some manner. However, McKenna didn't make it easy for others to like her.

"Spin the bottle anyone?" the daughter of Aphrodite - Kalani, McKenna recalled - proposed, a mischievous grin on her face. The blonde eyed the beer bottle in Kalani's hand with an attempt to disguise her disdain. She was sure that these games might seem entertaining to the others, but in all honesty, McKenna found them pointless and... disgusting, for the lack of a better term. Kissing people, the respective person being determined by a spin of an empty beer bottle? McKenna wasn't sure how anyone would find that enjoyable.

โ€œMcKenna and Duke, right?โ€ McKenna was forced to look up to the redhead who addressed her. The pains of being short. Why...... โ€œI'm Evelyn. You can call me Eve, if you're compelled to.โ€

McKenna, at first, didn't have the slightest idea why this redhead would approach her (she had a sense that this Eve was at least half a decade older than her), but on second thought, it was probably due to McKenna's half-brother, who was talking to Eve previously. โ€œUh... yes?โ€ McKenna refrained from staring Evelyn up and down with suspicion of an ulterior motive. McKenna heard that the other demigod was the daughter of Nemesis, so she could probably sense the blonde's uneasiness anyway. โ€œDo you want something, or...?โ€

Because in all seriousness, why else would someone approach a person like McKenna?

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.

It was really good to see everyone interacting and having fun tonight, but Alex felt like it would be entirely different soon enough.This year, Alex would make herself more prepared if Hades decides to send his lackeys to finish them off. Besides enjoying to draw and paint, Alex had a knack for taking photographs. Photography had always been one of her favorite hobbies. She loved the fact that photographs are proof that once, even just for a heartbeat... everything was perfect.

Steering away from things that might not happen, Alex put her head back into the game.

"Can I go after Lise?" Alex asked Kelani. While waiting for a response, Alex glanced around. Ajax was dancing closely to Andy which caused Alex to smile. They were a really lovely couple, even if Ajax tended to pull himself from the relationship from time to time. He knew Andy was strong, but that still didn't quench his fears.

Alex could now see Mason and Adrianna flirting, then Wes, making smores. "Um... call me over when it's my turn." Alex told those who were playing, then made her way over to Wes.

She placed her hand on his shoulder gently. "Hope you don't mind if I join you for a little bit." she stepped over the log with her right leg, then swung the other over before sitting next to him, her eyes watching the flames of the fire burning at a steady pace against the pink squishy marshmallow. "Something on your mind?" he didn't have to tell her if he didn't want to, but she was there for him no matter what. She'd come to him in the middle of the night if he needed his best friend. There was no time of day that she wouldn't be there. She would do the same for Duke too, and her brother.

Image Adrianna caught his eye and he rolled his eyes playfully. He was sure it wouldn't be too bad, wherever the bottle may land and where it wasn't too bad it could only be better. So yes, he joined to get lucky and help lose those inhibitions.

"Mason, I didn't realise you were a seasoned pro," Kalani replied and he shrugged with a smirk.

However, seeing Alex join, Mason regretted it instantly. It could be the worse and he didn't care about the damn party or game, he wasn't going near her. Behind Alex was an equally as bad sight, Ajax and Andy having a little heat-fest. Golden boy always did get what he wanted.

Observing outside the game, he missed Kalani's and Annie's kiss, he only saw Kalani return to her seat, but he figured it must have been brief because he wasn't looking for that long. He opened his mouth to consider arguing its eligibility, but he didn't want to have to french someone he'd rather not, all to make a point. And Annie definitely seemed a delicate girl to be light with.

The daughter of Zeus was so restless, she couldn't even sit there long enough to wait for her turn before demanding a turn after Lise's spin. Mason scoffed. Everybody had to bend the rules for "queen Alex" as usual, or so she expected.

His attention shifted to Trinity and he was as surprised to see her at this circle more than she was him. He had to do a double-take.
โ€œWhat brings you to this fine game?โ€ she asked.
"The chance of kissing any one of my fine looking camp acquaintances."
โ€œOh for fu-โ€ Mason's eyes widened a little at the burst and how firmly she bit her own lip. If it had been a moment longer he was convinced she'd draw blood. โ€œI'm not interfering with something here too am I?โ€
"Trinity, there's always room for you," he promised her lowly. "You're my number one girl and I wouldn't replace you, not like others do." Mason placed his hand over hers in the sand. It might have made him lose some of his appeal and reputation with Lockwood, but he promised himself last year that he couldn't lose Trinity. He wouldn't.

All around the warrior princess was losing people, not in death but life which was worse. Mason looked over his shoulder to Alex and Wes pointedly. "You and me, we got to look out for each other and I mean that," he whispered leaning towards her. "Andy's a good girl, we both like her and count her as a friend but if we were dying in the field of battle, she'd choose Ajax. Love of her life. Ajax would sooner let you bleed out too. No one is gonna pick us. Not your brother, Wes, Theo." He gestured to the hunter that joined the circle. The dude practically had heart eyes for Gwen. Last year, Theo gave Trinity any time of day, there truly was nobody he was more committed to than his big crush, but things had evidently changed and Trinity probably saw it as one big demotion.
Elias, he didn't know a great deal about, but he couldn't see him rushing to his half-sister's aid. Preferring to fight and all.
And Wes, he was infatuated with Trinity, sure, but he could hardly save himself. And Trinity and Mason both knew he didn't need a bottle to kiss Alex.

He put his hand back on his lap, watching the bottle. "I'll always have your back."

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

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

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

"Oh, easy!"

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

"Guess it's you, Lee!"

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Feeling a sense of relief when the girl took the beer, Finley's smile eases into a more genuine, and less awkward, one. Running a hand through his unkempt hair, Finley listens as she introduces herself. "Thank you for that," She begins, and Finley holds up his own beer in a sort of 'your welcome' motion, "I'm Areum, you?"

Areum, what an unusual name. He'd be sure not to forget it. "Finley," He says, pausing for a brief moment to ponder whether he should tell her his ridiculous nickname. Deciding it might be quite funny, Finley continues, "Some people call me Finn though." He laughs softly, before abruptly pausing when he realises she won't understand the joke. After all, she doesn't know who his father is. "Oh - I, um, I'm Poseidon's son." Finley goes on to explain, before chewing on his bottom lip anxiously. It was actually a little shocking to Finley how dumb he was being right now.

Attempting to be cool, or at least some what impressive, Finley holds up his beer before motioning his hand upward. Slowly, the liquid contents of the bottle rise up, coming out of the bottle in a line almost as if they were contained in a tube. Smiling at Areum, Finley then drops his hand and the beer falls back into the bottle, a couple drops splashing back up onto his face. Quickly wiping the liquid off his face, Finley's smile becomes sheepish as he realises maybe that wasn't as cool as he was hoping. "See." Finley adds, making it known he was just trying to show her that he was, indeed, a child of Poseidon.

Moving the bottle back up to his lips, Finley takes a sip, following Areum's gaze as it falls on the little gathering by the fire. Seemed like a lot of people had taken Kalani up on her spin the bottle suggestion. Finley, however, did not feel compelled to join those gathered and kiss a load of random people. Noticing Gwen sitting in the group, Finley can't help up chuckle to himself a little, of course she was - they may not have known each other for very long but it didn't take a genius to see that Gwen was by far the more outgoing of the two Poseidon children.

His sights are then shifted onto another group of campers dancing by the speaker, specifically Andy and her boyfriend. Ajax, right? Finley wasn't certain, but he seemed like an alright guy. Currently though the pair seemed to be about as close to getting frisky in the middle of a social gathering as you can get without it being too weird. Quick to look away, Finley's eyes widen ever so slightly after seeing that spectacle.

Focusing back onto Areum, Finley asks, "So, who's your godly parent?" Taking another sip, Finley shakes his head, "Actually, no, let me guess." This could be fun, unless he got it horribly wrong and she felt insulted. Oh gods. Pondering on it for a moment, Finley runs through all the demigods at camp he'd currently met, and their parent. Sure, she was beautiful enough to be a child of Aphrodite, but her demeanour betrayed, Areum was far too reserved to be the goddess' daughter. Nemesis perhaps? Finley had yet to meet one of her offspring. No. This was harder than Finley had anticipated, and now he was worried he'd put his foot in it.

Glancing over at her again, Areum's almost dreamy aura makes Finley think of a very specific God and a wry smile appears on his face. "You're definitely pretty enough to be a daughter of Aphrodite, but they're usually a little more obnoxious," Finley's gaze slips over to Kalani as he says this. It wasn't the worst trait to have, but the girl could be a bit over the top at times. "The only God that seems right would be Hypnos." Almost certain that he must be correct since no other seemed fitting, Finley's expression falls into a slightly smug, albeit still quite nervous smirk.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ani isn't sure whether to be annoyed or amused when Lise lands on Trinity, but decides on the latter after Lise's comment. However the amusement quickly turns into surprise when Trinity goes straight in for the kill, something Ani was not expecting. Since Alex had left the circle, even though she'd asked to go next - which didn't make much sense to Ani - it went back to Trinity to spin once more. Landing on Theo.

While she may not have been here the year previous, from the look on Trinity's face, someone must have gone down between her and the son of Artemis. How exciting, Ani wasn't usually one for causing chaos, she was more of a wing-woman than a drama queen, she couldn't deny that this was pretty interesting. Unless, of course, it hurt Wes. In Ani's eyes it was just a game, but then she'd never been in love and seen that person kissing someone else, so who was she to say how her brother would feel? Chewing on her bottom lip, she sends a glance in her half-brother's direction, hoping he would be too engrossed in his conversation with Alex to have taken notice.

"Looks like it's your turn Theo," Ani beams, locking eyes with him, "Although I doubt anyone's gonna be able to top that kiss."
She continues, giggling ever so slightly.

"Ani," Turning her head back to the circle, Ani catches Mason's eye once more, this has gotta be the most he'd ever spoken to her, "Who's your favorite on camp so far? It's not a trick question either," Cocking her head to the side, Ani wonders why on earth Mason is asking her this, and more than that, why he would even care. "Just some...soul searching. An interval game, if you will."

Biting down on her bottom lip, Ani's gaze floats around the circle as she ponders on Mason's question. "Well," She begins, a wry smile forming on her lips, "I wouldn't wanna hurt your feelings and not say you, Mace; besides, I don't want to rule out anyone," Ani had never once heard a single person call Mason that during her time at Camp and hey, if it ruffled his feathers she didn't really care, Ani was intentionally teasing him. "However, I'm more interested in hearing who your favourite is." Subtly avoiding the subject and cracking jokes seemed like the best option to Ani and so she sent Mason a wink, messing with him. She didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings by not saying them, or worse yet, make anyone uncomfortable by labelling the her 'favourite person at camp'. Especially since it was probably Lise, and Ani wasn't quite ready to reveal her little crush yet. Not only that, but Ani was genuinely curious as to who Mason favoured seeing as they barely spoke, maybe it would give her more of an insight into the role he had played at Camp Athens last year, since no one wanted to tell Ani the full story, not even Wes wanted to get into it which Ani respected; he lost a lot last year.

Waiting for his response, Ani looks over to Adrianna who was still sat by his side, wondering whether he might say her. It would certainly get him into her good books, although he already seemed to be top of her list. If they didn't end up hooking-up tonight Ani would be shocked, not because Mason struck her as a particularly frisky person, but because Adrianna was queen of seduction - second only to Ani, naturally. Although even Ani couldn't deny that her friend had the 'hot mean girl' schtick down, something that never really appealed to Ani, but she genuinely enjoyed Adrianna's take on it. In fact, Adrianna had been one of her first friends at the camp, and while they were actually quite different, Ani believed it was their parentage that brought the girls together. Plus they were both pretty amazing at talking the pants off of just about anyone. Brushing a lock of brunette hair from her eyes, Ani shifts her gaze back onto Mason.

Ajax had his answer, moving his hand up to cup to jaw gently. He slowly moved around her, until he was standing before Andy. His gaze never faltering from her own. His hand then slid down her arm, until his own arms rested at his sides. With his forehead to hers, she extended her right hand slightly, taking hold of his forearm, stroking his skin with her thumb. The girl's brows furrowed slightly as she took note of his labored breathing and subtle grin.

"I love you..." he whispered.

Andy's heart skipped a beat. Or did it stop? She couldn't tell. Her quickly fell out of sync, causing her to stumble. Her hands quickly took hold of Ajax's upper arms, attempting to steady herself. She couldn't help the tsunami that crashed into her. The past year had been such a rollercoaster, making her confused more than anything about how Ajax truly felt. But her own heart never wavered. Hearing those words effected her more than Andy had ever imagined. Her hands gripped to his arms like her life line from drowning in the overwhelming emotions. Tears began to build in her eyes, no matter how hard she fought them.

Her right moved to his chest, while her gaze fell to her fingers. Andy's hand grasped at his shirt as she tried to steady her breathing. With her hand upon him, she felt his own heart racing nearly as fast as hers was. She couldn't help but smile slightly to herself. She looked up at him, up into those dark warm eyes. At first she parted her lips, but nothing came out. A single tear ran down her cheek as she took a deep breath, before whispering back up at him. "And I love you."

"I'll pass... truth is, I joined for one reason and one reason only." That wasn't all that surprising. Most people only joined spin the bottle in hopes of getting a chance to kiss the object of their affection. Wes didn't have to be Aphrodite's son to notice that, but it did help. He also wasn't blind at noticing something was also on her mind, no doubt similar to his own struggles.

"I... I have to tell you something." Wes quirked his brow, turning his head towards her. He didn't say anything, instead waiting and listening while drawing circles in the sand with his stick. "I.... I'm falling in love."

He chuckled, a slight smile tugging at his mouth. "I know." Love was like a flashing alarm. It was black and white to him. He could feel it like the wind. The strength of the breeze growing with the force of the love. Standing near Andy and Ajax was like standing in the middle of a hurricane, while sitting beside Alex was like a cool autumn's breeze.

"I just... I'm scared of telling them. I don't want to like, make things awkward for them."

Wes sighed, tossing his stick into the fire. He tried not to look, but curiosity got the best of him and his glance drifted back over towards the spin the bottle game. Of course, at the completely wrong time. He sucked in his lips between his teeth as he closed his eyes. It was just a game, right? Then why did that sight bother him so much? Trinity wasn't his and he had no right to be put off by it. But, seeing her lock lips with Theo... Hurt. Safe to say, he'd rather lose his other arm than have to watch that again. Before looking back to Alex, his gaze drifted towards his sister who stared at him as if she already knew. He gave his best attempt at a smile, then returned his attention back to his present company.

"You should tell him," Wes finally said. "'What if's can be the death of you... But, at least when you get how you feel out in the open, you're never left wondering. You've said your piece and the ball is in their court." He shrugged his shoulders. "No matter what happens, you have the security in knowing you did all you can do."

Wes slid his hand into the front pocket of his jeans while crossing his ankles out before him. "I may be an idiot... Pining after a girl who most likely sees me no differently than you do." He looks over at Alex, his expression half amused at the truth of himself and half sad. Ironic how romance and love never seems quite as easy for himself. You think it would be due to his parentage, but if anything, that just makes the absence of it hurt more. "But," he held up an index finger. "She knows how I feel... and basically the entire camp."

He sighs softly, with a little chuckle. "You can be more subtle than me." Wes smiled, patting Alex's knee. "Plus... This 'guy'," he made air quotes with his hand, as if he didn't know whom she spoke of. "He'd be an idiot if he didn't have feelings for you too." After a moment, he clicked his tongue in his mouth. "Or I could kick his ass if he turns you down... Er, try to." Wes laughed, a deep heartfelt laugh. Everyone knew he couldn't fight for shit, and with one arm... He might win a battle with a rabbit, if he was lucky.

Dom actually chuckled at her comment about the ocean eating her. Sloane can't honestly remember a time when someone laughed at anything she said... Not unless it was ironically. Sylas laughed at her often, but simply because he thought she was stupid and naive. But someone actually laughing at her, because she did something that could be considered at least a fraction humorous was nice. It was a new sensation, that she might not experience again for awhile.

She awkwardly chewed on her bottom lip, scanning the crowds of campers. "I like it." Sloane looked back towards Dom. "Your name, I like your name. I mean, it's one of those names that doesn't need a nickname. It can hold its own."

The corner of Sloane's mouth curled into a slight smile. "I... never really thought of it that way." Her right hand raised, brushing a lock of hair behind her ear. "Thank you," she added, breaking the silence. It seemed the short while that they were already talking, the noisy abruptness of the part turned into white noise. Campers were getting drunk, kissing each other because a bottle tells them too and grinding their bodies together. She couldn't care less. But, the surprising part of the evening was someone actually noticing her existence when she expected to spend the evening reading a book trying not to get stepped on.

"Is it that easy to tell? I guess, I'm not doing a great job of hiding how much I don't belong here."

"Why hide it? I don't." Sloane was an outcast, putting it lightly. But, she didn't particularly care, or try to hide it. Her brother was the peacock out of the two of them. He always had to blend in, hide in plain sight. He hated how Sloane did her own thing, never conforming. It's ironic how intimidating people found her, just because she was a daughter of Eris that smiled maybe once a year.

"If I'm being honest, I've tried to talk myself into leaving several times. I don't know what's keeping me here, or I mean maybe I do now." Sloane's gaze fell to his feet as Dom dug his foot in the sand. Now? What did that mean? He couldn't possibly think that she was worth sticking around in this cesspool of raging hormones.

"Now? What's changed your mind? The potential to scare more air-headed demigods? She tilted her head to the side, looking up at him. "Or the prospect of saving more damsels from getting swallowed by the sea?" She had an inquisitive expression, holding his gaze even if he didn't hold hers.

"Why are you here? You're the first person I've meet that has brought reading material to a party."

She pursed her lips, raising her free hand up to rub the back of her neck. "Sylas made me come." Her gaze drifted over towards her brother who sat in the circle of anxious teenagers, waiting for their chance to get their kiss. Her eyes quickly darted to her feet when her brother's gaze met her own. Her company giving him a sadistic smirk that turned her stomach. For the most part, Sloane didn't care who Sylas entangled in his intricate web. But for some reason, it bothered her at the thought of him trying to bring Dom down with him.

"Figured if I had to come, I shouldn't be utterly bored." Sloane looked down at the novel held to her chest. She took it in her right hand, holding it up. "It's The Iliad. A book everyone should read, especially demigods." She turned the book over in her hands, flipping through the pages. "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."

After a moment of looking down at the book, Sloane took a step towards Dom. She held the worn hardback novel towards him. "You can borrow it... If you want." She gave him a slight smile, wiggling the book in her hand. "I've read it like a hundred times."

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.
