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.

ImageMason wasn't dragged to the fire but came on his own accord. Which he soon forgot the reason to and started to regret, standing on his lonesome with a bottle of beer, holding it around the neck. He shook his head to himself and took a big swig. Now was that too late / too soon hour, where others congregated and weren't blind enough to let him creep away. It was the hour if someone saw his retreating figure slink into the shadows, they'd talk him out of leaving and staying 'just a little while longer.'

Still, he convinced himself there were a lot of interesting fresh bloods on camp to take note of and see a few more shades to. Hell, maybe Alex would get stupid drunk and trip into the fire. Maybe it wouldn't be so bad. However, there was that missing jigsaw piece that Mason couldn't pin immediately until he peered at the faces around the fire. It wasn't disappointment and disgust as he normally held towards these sort of social mingly events but a pinch of sorrow. Daniel.

This was his first party back at Camp and Daniel had always been one of the faces to accompany them. One of those faces that took control of the tunes and implanted the everybody dance and drink or leave rule. Mason took a few paces away from the fire light and music, coming to stand near the shore line as a shadowed figure. He hadn't even visited Jenn today. Mason shoved his bottle in his arm while he lit a cigarette. The staff could bite him if they had an issue. He inhaled and puffed a cloud of smoke out.Mason was more out of place than ever this year. In fact he was surprised there wasn't an assassination attempt on his life yet.

He wasn't bothered by heat but the human part of him still produced sweat. He wiped his forehead with his arm after slaving over his forge for however many hours. Duke glanced up from his work to be met with the eyes of the clock, indicating it was now evening. Even more importantly, dinner time.

ImageDuke looked down to his current wear, ash had stuck to his skin, coating his arms in black and he was sweating far more than he knew. So he probably couldn't wear his grey muscle top to the fire tonight. He probably couldn't wear anything without a washing up. Duke made an essential detour to the shower until he felt refreshed enough to step out and get changed into his outfit.

Duke didn't know how he found it in himself to keep re-attending Camp Athens parties. Perhaps it had grown on him like a sort of tradition since nobody ever gave it a miss. Maybe it was more duty to keep the peace. Duke was seconds away from giving himself a pep talk in the mirror to be a role model and how to behave tonight but thankfully he stopped himself. Instead he did what real men do and just walked to the party on the beach.

Once there he was received by decent music, food and drink. Duke grabbed himself a plastic plate and moved along the table, picking up different meats and minimal salad. Duke took a seat on the log acting as benches and dug into the food before it got ruined by any number of extraneous variables.

Andy stood in front of her mirror, her fingers running over the field of purple and blue that plagued the left side of her ribcage. She sighed. Scrapes bruises and whatever else covered a majority her body from the neck down. She tested their tenderness with her fingertips, wincing slightly at the pressure on her side.

Andy had been spending all her time since the war breathing, eating and sleeping her training. It kept her mind busy, and focused. Regardless if they won the war, that couldn't be the end. Demigods always had a target on their heads, and she refused to have anyone taken from her like her brother was. But the training wasn't all beneficial... She was almost constantly covered in scrapes and bruises, and it was beginning to take a toll on her.

She rested her hands on the edge of the sink with a sigh. She wasn't wanting to go to this party, it wouldn't be the same. But, if she didn't go, she knew Trinity or Ajax would be at her door in no time. Andy's gaze drifted over her bruises once again before walking over to her closet. It took her nearly half of her wardrobe before finding an outfit that covered the purple marks on her skin perfectly.

Andy started to make her way out of her cabin, stopping in the doorway when she realized she forgot something. She hurried back inside, grabbing her locket. She put it over her head as she walked her way through the woods towards the bonfire. As she neared the sounds of music, seeing the warm glow between the tree, her gaze drifted to the beach where she saw a figure lingering away from the party that had barely started.

Instead of walking towards the party, she instead walked towards the beach. As Andy got closer, she noticed it was Mason. She stopped a few feet behind him, crossing her arms over her chest as she saw him light up. "If you die from lung cancer... I'll find a way into the underworld and kick your ass myself." She slowly stepped closer, crouching down behind him. Her hands moving to rest on his shoulders. She sighed softly, resting her chin on the top of his head. "They know we miss them, Mason."

Andy leaned forward, wrapping her arms around him in a gentle hug. "Plus, if they saw us being party poopers... They'll come back from the dead to drag us to the party themselves." She smiled softly, then quickly snagged away his cigarette and chucked it into the water. "Oops," she laughed before standing up. Andy then moved in front of him, holding out her hand. "Come on."

Wes took the empty right sleeve of his shirt and sweater, stuffing it inside the torso of his shirt. There isn't many ways to wear an empty sleeve of a shirt. Leave it dangling looks weird, so that's not an option. Knot the end... Or tuck it in. That's what he went with. He knew some of the new campers still start at him like he's fragile. Might as well just have it right in their face that he's only got one arm.

After wrapping a scarf around his neck and putting on a beanie, Wes checked his appearance in the mirror one last time. He looked alright, that was good enough. He contemplated a leather jacket, but he hasn't had the heart to cut off the right sleeves just yet. It's too soon, and his jackets are good leather. He adjusted his beanie and scarf over and over. Wes couldn't put a finger on why the party made him nervous. He'd been to multiple since he came to camp. It had nothing to with his arm, or the new campers.

Wes sighed, smiling at his own stupidity. It was Trinity. It always was Trinity. He pursed his lips, heading out of his cabin before he second guessed his appearance again. His left hand was tucked in his jean pocket as she trudged his way through the trees. Before he realized it, he wasn't at the party but at the bottom of the stairs leading up to Trinity's cabin. He thought about leaving. But what if she saw him? He could just run into her at the party... Or, just walk there with her.

He probably pivoted back and forth like four times before forcing himself to walk up the steps. Wes knocked on the door. "Hey Trin, how about escorting a one-armed loser to a party? For old times sake." He leaned against the door frame, waiting patiently.

Sloane sat in the window seat, turning the page in her book to a new chapter. It was then that she heard the door to her cabin open without a knock. She sighed, knowing full well that it was Sylas and his lack for personal space. Instead of getting up to meet him or anything else, she kept her gaze on her book. She's much rather continue to read about the Trojan War rather than deal with her brother.

"Why won't you just stay in a cabin with me?" Sylas asked, propping himself in her doorway.

Sloane sighed, turning the page but not even sparing him a look. "Because we're not five."

Sylas sighed, slipping his hands into the pockets of his pants. "You going to this party..."

"Is that a question or a demand?" Sloane closed her book, holding her place with her index finger.

"Does it matter?" He stared at her, waiting for an answer. Sylas tapped his knuckles against the wall.

Sloane sighed, patting her book against her lap. "No."

Sylas walked over to Sloane, taking the book from her lap. He looked over the cover with a scoff, tossing it backwards onto her bed. "We've been here how long? And you've done nothing." Sloane pursed her lips, crossing her arms over her lap finally looking towards her brother.

"You're going." Sylas reaches his hand out, brushing away a loose lock of hair. "I have some prospects that need your... special touch. So, I will see you there." He leans forward, pressing his lips to Sloane's forehead. "Wear something nice. You need to turn heads." With that, Sylas stood up and made his way out of her cabin.

He strutted his way down the paths towards the beach. Sylas was in no particular hurry, instead watching the other campers run and scurry around him towards the party. He watched them all intently, taking in their emotions, making a list. Who was worth his time, who wasn't... The camp was like his own little toy box with so many things at his disposal, it was hard for him to choose want to pursue first. A party is the best place to start slowly extending his tendrils out, testing the waters and starting his work... Especially with Sloane there.

Sylas finally reached the beach, looking around at the small group of campers that have already began congregating around the bonfire. Not many, but he was early. He made his way over to the food and drinks, grabbing himself a beer. He popped it open, taking a drink as he watched others arrive. This was going to be fun.

Image

Sloane paced around her room for the better part of ten minutes trying to decide if it was really worth the effort, going to this dumb party. She wasn't a partier by any means. And honestly, a party was the last place she wanted to be. But if she knew Sylas, and she did, he'd show up at her door the second he realized she wasn't going there. Which would only make her life more complicated than trying to be invisible around a bunch of immature demigods.

She pinched the bridge of her nose, with a sigh. Sloane threw open the doors to her closet, fingering through her clothes. Wear something nice. She scoffed to herself, pulling out the first outfit she found. It didn't take her long to get dressed, hoping that what she was wearing would help be ignored rather than draw attention to herself. Before leaving her cabin, she grabbed her book from her bed, sighing when she noticed that Sylas folded some of the pages. She cursed under her breath, slipping it into her bag.

Sloane, checked her reflection one last time before heading out her front door and down the steps. She adjusted her bag on her shoulder as she walked slowly towards the beach. She was in no rush to get there, and wouldn't mind if it took her the whole night to walk there. So, instead of rushing to please her brother, she pulled out her book, picking up where she left off, reading while she walked.

Son of Apollo




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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

then why was he going

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

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

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

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

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

This was going great already.

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

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

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

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

____________________________________________

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?

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.

Mateo finished combing his hair into a rather fluffy and innocent updo. Even from his short time at camp, he had made sure the majority of his things from home were sent here for his comfort. His current favorite being a large mahogany vanity that his father had purchased for him at an auction. Leaning back in his plush swivel chair, he propped his feet up on the vanity taking a moment to soak in the night. Of course he was excited, parties were his thing, but he truly wasn't sure that he was in the proper mood. Maybe he just needed some good old fashioned socializing and alcohol to get him to his charming self. However, before he could make any more outfit decisions his newly-found sister's voice rang from the hall. "MAAATTTYYY! Help me choose my outfit!"

Matt adored Adrianna. She was his mini-me, the sister he never had, and a true Hera child. It felt so nice for him to finally find someone the understood him on such an odd level. It only made him realize even more that Hera kids needed to stick together.

He left his room and went down the hall of the lavishly marble building peeking his head into Adrianna's room, "Did somebody call for help?!" he managed to hold a serious face before cracking a smile. He plopped himself comfortably on the edge of her bed and crossed his arms, "Alright, what's the situation?"

"I'm thinking black and maroon for my colors, maybe throwing in some gold jewelry?" Adrianna held up a couple of different combinations of the colors and he tapped his chin, racking his brain about what would look the best. "Okay. Definitely, the black top and skirt, paired with... gods you have to go with the rabbit fur. It screams 'bow down bitches', and throw in the bracelet, earrings, booties and you're unstoppable sis" He grinned at her from the bed and then she disappeared to try on the 'concoction' of an outfit.

"What do you think? Hot or extra hot?" She twirled around in the outfit and Mateo clapped his hands together in excitement. "Hades is jealous Dri, they won't know what hit em'" She gave him a dashing smile and hug before shooting him an air kiss. Classic Adrianna.

"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." Mateo let out a small chuckle as he stood up from her bed, "How am I not surprised you have things picked out? But yeah, go ahead and I'll meet you guys. Just don't have too much fun without me" He gave her a wink and she laughed before twirling over her shoulder giving him a quick goodbye before leaving.

Mateo went back to his room to see that Adrianna had indeed picked out some outfits for him. His sister had great taste, this he was thankful for. He finally settled on a darker outfit. It was classic, screamed a little frat boy, and maybe a little edgy but he liked it. The dark colors also did a wonder on his bright blue eyes. He wasn't looking to knock the socks off of any of the other demigods but the look combined with his innocent features was enough to start a conversation and turn a few heads.

After he had finished getting ready, he eventually headed down the sandy path to the beach. There were a few others there, and his sister was already chatting away with her friends. Before he decided to join them however he made his way to the food table and grabbed a beer. Bottoms up as they say.

Her legs were locked around a sturdy branch and she engaged her core to pull herself up while biting down on the hem of her overflowing top. โ€œTwenty-nineโ€ she muffled aloud, โ€œโ€ฆthirty.โ€ She pulled herself up enough to grab a hold of the branch to balance herself as she sat on the thick limb of the tree. Trinity knew well she could do more, but a party did await her and several others of camp. And what she was wearing was her party gear for the night.

From where she was situated she could see the glow of the fire on the beach. The little antisocial voice in her brain said it wasn't worth it, that instead she should choose to keep working out. Blow off that never-ending steam. Steer clear of the inevitable drunken drama. Steer clear of stupid games that accompany parties.

But it was rare for her friends to be in the same place for an extended amount of time. Parties weren't all awful either. They were a good unwind source. It was at the beach which she always loved and they could be amusing.

Trinity jumped down from the tree with a gentle thud and made her way to her cabin. She pulled herself to a halt spotting a figure pacing back and forth, doing sharp turns like arguing with themselves near her cabin. Trinity soon got the full image and smiled, leaning against a tree until Wes had decided on whatever it is he was going to do. After all, who was she to interrupt a mind train no matter how frantic. He finally approached her cabin and knocked on the door. "Hey Trin, how about escorting a one-armed loser to a party? For old times sake."
Trinity approached her porch and Wes's back. โ€œJust for old time's sake I guess. Because you know, I don't actually like your company.โ€ She stepped up to Wes and held out her top. โ€œDoes that smell?โ€ She had a pre-prepared cringe on her face like his head would jerk back. But she decided against changing outfits no matter what. Trinity swung open her cabin door and strolled on in, waving him in with a hand behind her back. โ€œYou got your boardies? Board shorts?โ€ Trinity cackled to herself. Under those jeans Wes wore, she doubted it.

She walked into her room and did a quick strip and change so her bathers were underneath instead then returned to Wes with a warm smile. โ€œNow we can go.โ€

After what probably passed as a couple of seconds walking Wes, Trinity chuckled to herself. โ€œYou know, we can make you a non-loser. All you'd have to do is beat me in an arm wrestle.โ€ Trinity was always nagging for a little round with Wes. After all, in their first meeting he'd been keen to wrestle with her but hadn't followed up since. โ€œI remember, you specifically said, 'I'd wrestle with you any day' โ€
, she argued. Even though something was a little off course when he said it, he had thousand percent said it.

Harleen was making her way to the beach party that she was pretty excited for. Up until now it felt everything had kind of been mechanical and people forced themselves to behave certain ways, but with a party it kinda presented that opportunity to show a few more colors. How people handled their liquor for one, who was the impulsive drinkers, what kind of drunks they were and how they behaved in a more liberating environment and event.

She rolled up her sleeves as she paced and wiped down her bare arm to pull her less than stylish five nights at freddy's and co bracelets back down to her wrist. Personally, she made herself chuckle looking at them, the fashion choice like a design of a shameless ten year old.

The bonfire was a delight to set sights on and she practically leaped over to the drinks. โ€œ'Scuse me, Sylas,โ€ she said. Not that he was in the way but he was near enough to the cold containers. She plucked herself a beer then hesitated looking back in the lucky dip of drinks. Was it a BYO thing if you wanted more range or what? Harleen looked around to the others, tossed the beer bottle to herself and caught it. She gave a cheers motion to Sylas then wandered off.

Harley's eyes scanned the people in current attendance and she rehearsed their names silently. Even if she hadn't interacted with them personally, their name had been uttered at least once or twice by another camp mate. She smiled smugly when all their names had been said in her head and she knew she was right.

For now things were pretty tame. But once everybody felt more of that buzz, she was sure things would really kick into party mode and fun.

Evelyn must have stood near the beach merely contemplating joining for at least five minutes. But indecisiveness was not a great trait or good look on Evelyn. She closed her eyes and started towards the fire. Like some, she made her way towards the food and served herself up some dinner. Then she paused again turning around to see where to sit. It felt like high school and she was the outcast of outcasts, unsure of where she belonged.

A big man had already reserved himself a log and started shoveling food into his mouth. With him, perhaps she wouldn't be bothered and they looked to share a certain objective. The objective being to eat in peace before the alcohol took its effects and things got rowdy and soap opera like. โ€œWould you mind if I sat here?โ€ she asked, standing above him and gesturing to a vacant space nearby him. Of course she'd at least sit two body lengths away from him since she didn't know him and he looked a man that chose to eat alone.

He looked up at her with his brows pinched together then he swallowed his mouthful of food and pointed with his fork to the space. โ€œNo, go right ahead,โ€ he said, which Evelyn was grateful for. Not just in his response but that he had swallowed his food before replying to her.

Common courtesy was a dying attribute. โ€œThank you.โ€ Evelyn smiled politely and sat down where promised. She ate at a leisurely pace, feeling no obligation to fill the silence with chatter or wolfing down her food.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The bonfire wasn't something Raven was particularly excited about going to but it didn't mean she didn't want to go. Maybe it was the thought of her sneaking off to relax by the shore with a beer and watching the tide pull in and back out into the ocean that urged her to go or possibly the slim chance of making conversation with her half brother without it being weird. What if alcohol makes it easier? Did he even drink? Those were the little things that a part of her, as a sister, wanted to know more about. Anyway, it was more alone time with a different scenery. It may sound a little lonely but Raven was use to it by now.

Then again, the blankets she was wrapped in were super warm and just the thought of having to temporarily leave that warmth, especially since she just finished taking a warm shower, made her second guess herself. The thought was pushed away, though, with a sigh and pale fingers making their way through white strands.

Getting up from her bed Raven stretched up, then down, then made her way to the closet. She pulled it open and quickly picked out an outfit and tossed it on. That's when she heard a door open then close, most likely Dominik heading out. Raven gave it a few minutes, grabbing her little sketchbook that she'd been drawing in for the past hour or so and tucked it away in her back pocket along with a worn pencil the size of her thumb. Once a good ten minutes passed Raven headed out, left hand casually pocketed.

After a slow trek through the forest path, occasionally stepping aside so the more eager ones could hustle by, courtesy of muah, Raven began seeing a dim light flickering in between the trees, pointing out her destination. As she got closer the voices got clearer but so did the soft crashing of waves. Tonight wasn't a night where she wanted to put so much energy in looking intimidating so once squared shoulders relaxed and took in her surroundings, Raven made her way over to the big cooler on the ground where she plucked a beer from, popped it open and sat herself quietly on an unoccupied log. Dull green eyes curiously wondered, taking a few swigs here and there but she wasn't looking for anyone in particular... just looking.

McKenna frowned at the mess of metal before her. She was merely bored and decided to forge something without any idea in mind... it turns out that doesn't work for the blonde.

McKenna sighed, tossing the metal into the scrap bucket - a place she threw all of her deformed pieces where she would either: one, melt into one piece of metal and a later time or two, attempt to do some weird chemical processes to those horrendous things and actually separate the metals. It works, McKenna told herself firmly with full confidence. What it worked with? Now, that was the temperamental factor.

McKenna was about to leave for her cabin when she stopped in her tracks, realizing that she hasn't labeled what compounds were in the metal potpourri she had just created. She grabbed her sharpie, scrawling a quick "18" on the deformed shape before referring to the notebook she associated with all her blacksmith matters.

Potassium, McKenna began her list with the alkali metal she had used. She had desperately wanted to work with stuff like caesium, francium, or perhaps rubidium, but their melting points were too low, and francium was truly quite rare. Strontium, beryllium, indium, iron, tantalum, tungsten. Typical blacksmiths perhaps restricted themselves to wrought iron and steel, but not the daughter of Hephaestus.

After she finished her list, McKenna slammed her notebook shut, walking back to her cabin to change. She originally wasn't going to the bonfire, but she had reached a creative block with her metals (instead of writer's block, it was blacksmith's block). McKenna really didn't care if she was late, though, so there was no rush in her step.

Once she got back to her cabin, McKenna pulled on her much-loved Serbian sweatshirt, jeans, and tattered sneakers. The blonde sauntered out of the cabin without much thought.

McKenna arrived at the bonfire, eyeing the socializing campers with distaste. Not her thing. McKenna wasn't the shy type, but she was introverted, preferring to stay with her metals and fire rather than "hang out with friends." No, thanks.

Seung-min pouted as he stared into his full length floor mirror, his outfit choices on either side of him. While Seung-min wasn't as concerned with his glamorous beauty as maybe the Hera or Aphrodite kids were, when he didn't randomly throw on a set of clothes 95%, he tended to have a really hard time choosing outfits.

Finally, Seung-min just decided to go for it and chose his outfit for the party. Now that he thought of it, it wasn't really worth it to wear his opening ceremony shirt to the bonfire.

Seung-min grinned at himself proudly through the mirror. His moment was interrupted by a loud knock on the door. "Why the hell are your cabins so far away? And you can teleport!" Seung-min gulped as he remembered the time and his precious little hyung (okay, sure, Ji-hyun definitely wasn't the little one out of the two of them). Eidetic memory didn't necessarily mean, "aware of surroundings."

"Shouldn't you be faster than I am?" Ji-hyun continued. "And they say I'm lazy? Get your butt out here!" Seung-min grabbed his shoes, shoving them on his feet as he dashed towards the door. However, his running and teleportation didn't necessarily coordinate when Seung-min didn't concentrate and really just wanted to get somewhere. A few feet before he reached the door, Seung-min teleported outside without much thought, accidentally slamming into his (favorite) hyung.

"Sorry, hyung!" Seung-min chuckled sheepishly, rubbing the back of his neck. "You know me, I'm like that. I can't believe you came all the way here little ol' me!" Seung-min grinned brightly. Personally, he considered the older boy a close friend, although he wasn't sure if that was really the case in Ji-hyun's opinion. "Anyway, let's go!"

The two began walking down to the bonfire, although Seung-min had significantly more bounce in his step than Ji-hyun (hell, he was practically skipping). "Why are you going to the party, hyung? Doesn't really seem like your scene, if I'm honest. Is there going to be alcohol? Wait, of course there's going to be alcohol... hopefully. I was obedient back in Daegu, following the law and whatnot, but you know I'm just not a goody-two shoes, hyung! I was actually going to snatch my parents' alcohol once when I was fifteen, but my friend said I probably wouldn't act much different if I was drunk, except for being much crazier, and you know, I don't want to put the burden of taking care of a drunk me on anyone." Seung-min, admittedly, had faltered a bit when he mentioned his friend - but he could slip them into his everyday conversation now. I'm doing better, he thought to himself, slightly proud.

daughter of hypnos | outfit


Half of her yearned to stay away from the bonfire that'd be going on at the beach tonight, too exhausted for any semblance of fraternizing, while another side had begged for something to distract her from absolute boredom. Laying down inside of her cabin, these two sides fought, and as she soon found herself rifling through her wardrobe, attempting to find something to wear, it was clear that the latter side had won out in the end. She didn't care much for making friends or trying to get drunk off of beer that barely had any alcohol in it, but it was prime opportunity to see who'd be worth getting to know during her time in camp.

The outfit that she had picked out was simple and to the point; she wasn't looking to attract any attention to herself, merely there to observe. As the time for the bonfire soon approached the sky outside turned from a bright blue to dazzling shades of pink and orange before finally developing into more darker colors. She had already cleaned herself up, put on a minimal amount of make-up, and donned her apparel for the night. The only thing left to do was to make her way down to the bonfire.

During her short journey towards the beach, she recounted her time spent at Camp Athens so far, which had been boring save for the small rumors that had passed by her ear of the events that had occurred last year. However, she had confirmed none of these said rumors, and she surely wasn't about to go around prying into the past of others so soon since her arrival at the camp. She'd have to make a few connection first before she would ever get the information that she wanted, but she was more than content with waiting.

Once she reached the bonfire there were quite a few Demigods already gathered, some who were already indulging themselves in whatever food or drinks that they had present. Areum kept herself at a distance; close enough to feel the lingering heat of the fire, but still where she could safely observe everyone that had gathered. Although a few familiar faces wandered into her vision here and there, there were few that she had actually talked do during her short time here.

The only expectation she had for the event was a source of entertainment, and she would sorely disappointed if it didn't even manage to live up to the one hope that she held.

ImageHis reflection and solitude was interrupted by a familiar voice. "If you die from lung cancer... I'll find a way into the underworld and kick your ass myself."
Mason grinned to himself but kept his gaze ahead. "It's only occasional," he reasoned.
He tapped the ash away before she held his shoulders gently and rested her chin on his head. "They know we miss them, Mason."
He hoped so but that didn't bring them back. Rather than share a comment or speak unkindly to his friend, he chose to sit in silence. Andy's arms wrapped around him in a gentle hug and he didn't feel so terribly alone. He held her arm gently "Plus, if they saw us being party poopers... They'll come back from the dead to drag us to the party themselves."
Mason smiled a little. Probably. But the word didn't come out. The next thing he knew, his cigarette was snatched from his hand and thrown into the water. His fingers were paused in shape, eyes glued on the washed up cig before he scoffed.
"Oops." She giggled. Andy moved in front of him and offered her hand. "Come on."
He stared at her for some time then took her hand and found his feet. "You know, you're lucky I like you. And if any environmentalist tries to have a go why there's a cigarette in the water, I'm throwing you under the bus."

He dragged his feet towards the bonfire with Andy. Technically he was in party territory just not right in the the bonfire's light, but no, Andy couldn't accept that. "I was here earlier than you, on the beach, everyone's seen my face or back at least, doesn't that count as attendance?" he tried.

Once in fire light, a smirk crept across his lips. "What game is it going to be tonight?" he asked lowly to his friend. "Another truth or dare? Spin the bottle?" he speculated with mock excitement, shimming his shoulders a little like a giddy boy and the grin to go along with it. His mock expression couldn't even last when he laid eyes on Ajax accompanied by Theo and Emery. Mason pursed his lips. Andy didn't need permission but in case there was some kind of obligation she felt to him he bumped his shoulder into her lightly. "I'll behave and stay right here," he promised, "you know, if you want to be a real girl and talk and socialize."

Elias finished his routine, maybe he was cutting the party a bit close, but he was not one to cut things out without need. He had not been at camp but for a couple days. He had settled into things well enough, and in doing so had not gone out of his way to make friends yet. He had not been unfriendly, but also not engaging. He knew a challenge awaited him here, but what it was, what form it would take he didn't know. Morning jog, stretching, shower, breakfast, then the planned camp activities through the day. during that time he would read if there was little to do, something it seemed was uncommon for those of his father. after dinner he would find a quiet area and practice his forms the martial abilities, some days martial katas other days the sword. he knew well that skill in these areas would always be limited by physical ability, so that is what he trained most.

Today was different though. As the party approached he got ready for it. Not taking much time to pick out an outfit because, well he didn't have that may. He chose a casual look. That would do well he thought, black open shirt over a blue one with black jeans, this was a bonfire after all. He looked around. The cabin was empty of anyone getting ready. It seemed that he was a little on the late side. No matter he had no one to meet just yet and well it would do well to be a bit late to make sure there were plenty of people to mingle with. Much better than early at any rate.

Checking himself in the mirror to be certain everything was in place, Looking well it looked a little much for the beach. Maybe, the over-shirt could always go and well to dress it down a little he grabbed his sandals in place of the shoes he had had on. Not as practical, but on the beach bare feet would be more stable anyway. He ran his toes along them. He would need new ones soon. They were worn out, he'd need to replace them soon. Just as well. Finishing it off, he'd tuck a small throwing knife into each of his pockets and snag the pack that was sitting by the door. Another once over in the mirror and he was off for the beach. He kept a good clip on the way until he saw the light of the bonfire. Looking around he saw a number of his other campers there. He thought about that for a moment and decided that heading out onto the sand of the beach and toward the fire would be good place to settle in. Who knew he might find someone there wanting to be social. Maybe it was time he should get to know some of his fellow campers.

Reaching the beach he headed over to the food tables and loaded himself up a plate of food and snagged a beer from the cooler. Scanning over the party he saw people had started to form themselves into groups, then there at the center, on one of the logs and scanning the area like he had been. Well seemed as good a person as any to introduce himself to. He headed over to the log and took a seat there beside her. โ€œMind if I join you?โ€ He slung his bag down onto the elbow of the arm that held his beer, and looked to Raven before setting it on the ground, making sure she didn't have any objections before setting it down.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"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.

Image Duke had let the girl be for the most part, and he himself really preferred the food at present. It was a comfortable silence, however sharing a log just a few spaces away from each other and knowing nearly nothing about her prompted him to talk. But even that plan took longer when he finally glanced away from his plate. The bonfire was attracting more and more campers, including Alex and his less likely to show sister. Mckenna nearly caused him physical pain as she looked far too strained and disgusted at the scene of a party. Mass social gatherings such as parties weren't everybody's cup of tea or favorite thing, but they still attended and made half an effort not to snarl at other attendees. Then again McKenna was McKenna.

He'd tend to her soon though. He cleared his throat in warning that he was going to open discussion with his new company. "How is camp treating you so far?"
Figuring that for an overused conversation starter he added, "what do you think of the bonfire? If you've got a favorite song Ajax might have it on his playlist,"
he suggested. Though Duke guessed the music choice probably wasn't what had her so closed off. But if it did help her unwind, and mingle with Ajax who had a way of reassuring people and incooperating comfort of the camp, what damage could it cause?

At a glance in his friend's direction, Duke saw he was preoccupied in other conversation and company that seemed to be growing. "Have you met my sister?" he found himself asking instead and nodded towards the brooding small blonde. A short laugh escaped him. Only few weeks ago he had met her himself, and he was trying to find her friends when she looked like the world was out to get her.

Duke overheard the suggestion of a spin the bottle game and few people merged over towards the area they claimed to play their lip-locking game. Though most the faces were first years, he knew others would join. Probably Theo, maybe Alex, Mason would probably get dragged in by his current company. Likewise, he could guess others would sit out, the red-headed girl sitting by him, McKenna. He kept a watchful eye on her until the game started, ready to intervene if any jolly drunk tried to drag her into the game.

"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.
