It is rumored that a lot of supernatural phenomenon can occur deep within its depths, and many legends and tales and spurred from this place. However, it is also popularly used by people for other normal Origin activities.

And while monsters and the like can also be hunted here, this place has also been used by Astrius Academy and other places for field trips and camping trips. Unless one goes too far in, the monsters are normally not that strong in this region so it can make great training.

And so as they slept, the night turned into the deep night, the two/three moons of Origin shined in the night sky, and all seemed quite and peaceful, as far as anyone could tell anyways. The two friends slept soundly, enjoying their peaceful friendship slumber. Atrix even unconsciously loosened up in his sleep because he felt like he had a friend he could trust there with him. Of course, when he woke up he would probably get embarrassed.

And when day finally did return, and sun creaked in through the windows and sky projection, Atrix began to wake up in a groggy like fashion. He started to push himself up but ended up falling over and forward, landing on something soft and warm. And when he used his arms to push himself up, he also ended up accidentally pressing on that person.

After that, he looked down and noticed their situation, and then remembered last night. The crying, and sadness, and the promise. Yes...Meeko who was like an older brother to him. That said, he still got embarassed by the current situation. He quickly sat up, but felt something else behind him. He turned around, and saw that two small arms were clung around him as well, and belonged to a white haired boy who was sleeping naked with them.

But of course, seeing this scene Atrix's face turned really red. "Oh wow...oh no, people are totally going to misinterpret this..."

"Why?" the boy asked Atrix innocently. "My name is Ixian, by the way..."

"Well, because I mean, we were all naked in the same bed and..."

"But we are all boys? Shouldn't it be fine? I think its really all in your head, maybe only it would be weird if you made a fuss of it sillybrain".

"Well..."

"Only weird people would believe such fantasy. At least based on my experiences, this stuff is totally normal. In fact, we could probably go the whole morning like this! Plus..."

"Plus?"

"Who will find out while there are only three of us here?"

At that comment, it finally hit Atrix that Ixian was right....however....

"Why did you crawl into this bed with us? And why are you naked?"

"...I got lonely, and I felt weird if I was the only one dressed. Can we have breakfast now?"

"Okay, but first..."

Suddenly, both Atrix's and Ixian's stomachs grumbled. Well, Meeko's might have as well.

"First lets get dressed. Meeko, wake up now".

Atrix nudged Meeko a bit, and then poked his nose, to get him to start waking up while Atrix jumped out of bed with a sheet wrapped around him. Ixian however grabbed the sheet and pulled it away.

"You almost took this by mistake!"

"...it wasn't a mistake!"

"Well can we have breakfast now?"

"Didn't you kind of just barge in here? And no! We should get dressed first! Ah wait...uhhh, we also have not showered yet either..."

"All of that can happen later! We can get dressed after! Breakfast now! And that way, we wont spill any food on our clothes!"

"No no no!"

It appeared that Ixian was so hungry he just wanted food right now, even before getting dressed which Atrix felt was weird. Also, Atrix realized that they had not even showered yet. Since the tent couldn't be installed with plumbing, due to the fact it would need to be connected ot an external water source and also have a pipe to dump waste out of, there was no shower or toilet. As for showers, there were essentially wooden stalls out doors. People would have to leave their stuff outside or hanging on the walls or door and have water pour onto them. And there were bathrooms in the office buildings and such. So if they wanted to shower, they had to use that, or bathe in the river.

Atrix wondered if Meeko would be willing to let him get away with not showering during the camping trip, at least every morning, but given that it would add to his bad habits...well, Atrix would hope for the best. But first...

Atrix and Ixian looked at Meeko. "We need a tiebreaker!"

The situation was utterly ridiculous.

But of course, there was also the event coming up this morning that would be ridiculous in its own way.

The Dodgeball Game, Astrius Academy Style.

Meeko was a deep sleeper and woke to the two boys arguing over what should be done first. He sat up against his will and rubbed his eyes a little bit, trying to focus on what was happening. The two of them weren't going to stop until they got a tie-breaking opinion. He let out a roar like that of a tiger just to get them to be quiet so he could think.

"Okay, I get that we're all hungry here." He said as he turned to look at Ixian, his own stomach growled a little. "But there are certain things that are not considered acceptable here. I'm not sure what things were like where you are from, but running around naked for everyone to see isn't allowed here, it's just the rules." He started to sound like an older brother to Ixian now too. "So here's what's going to happen. It's still barely the break of dawn and no one has started making breakfast yet anyway, so we're all gonna grab a towel, wrap it around our waists, and take our clothes with us to go get showers then get dressed and then I'll make us some breakfast." He sighed. He was clearly not a morning person, but acting like a parent seemed instinctual for him.

Meeko grabbed a towel and wrapped it around his waist and took his clothes too.

"I'm going down to the showers now. If you want to get one before everyone else gets there you might want to hurry up. And if you don't shower you ain't getting any of my famous bacon pancakes." He said sternly before leaving the tent to go shower.

"Sheesh, makin' me sound like my mother. Ugh, kids." He muttered as he walked down to the shower. H got there before the teachers even showed up and got cleaned really quick. Then he dried off and got dressed before putting the towel on the clothes line running from the tent to a nearby tree. He then went to the fire and used the stuff that the staff had brought for the students to have free use of. He got a fry pan and a spatula and tongs and fried up a lot of bacon. He then used the pancake batter mix that was there and mixed it up, before pouring it into the hot pan and then added two strips of bacon in the shape of an x in each pancake before flipping it. He made as many pancakes as the box of batter would make knowing the way Atrix liked to eat. Luckily the staff brought a lot of supplies. He had most of the pancakes made and he was wondering what was taking them so long and he feared that the other students would soon be woke up by the smell of food and take it before the other two got there.

At Meeko's words, Ixian looked away as if embarassed when reminded about his past....no it was not just embarassment, there was pain too and other things. Actually, it sort of felt like there was some contradictions in his expressions too, almost like he did not know how to react.

After they soaked in his words, the way Meeko scolded Atrix reminded him of something...something that stirred up something inside him that most likely Meeko had not really seen much. A shadow of it was maybe seen after the bullies targeted Meeko as well for being his friend, but this was different. Well, it was exactly the same as how he had been acting before as well, but it was also an exact opposite.

At Meeko's last words, he went to pinch Meeko's nose with a michevous grin. "Hey! You cant say that, you are a kid too!"

Atrix was aware of his past, so in a way he was also awake Meeko did not have much of a childhood. It was something that Atrix had once had himself, until it was violently cut short. So, Atrix had decided something as well.

"So don't you go thinking that you are the only responsible one here!" Atrix said as he puffed out his chest...though, because of his build, and because his build was even more visible at the moment, it was questionable whether it did anything but make him look more adorable. "I can be responsible too! And I wont let you not have fun!"

And then....a huge stomach erruption happened.

"Can we please hurry then?"

With that, the two grabbed towels and clothes and followed Meeko to the showers. Atrix had been slightly concerned about having their clothes stolen and being made to streak all the way back, but...for some reason no one showed up. Even if most of the bullies were back at the academy, he thought there would be a few...

Of course, the truth was that Ixian's Spirit Guardian, Boo Boo, was hidden nearby and causing interference. And while they were showering, Ixian finally spoke up.

"...sorry. I...I didn't mean to make anyone upset. Its just, I actually don't know anything about common sense. You see...I was actually raised inside a lab since birth and treated like a lab rat until I escaped with the others. So...I actually don't know anything about what is normal, because I was litterally treated like a lab rat and not a human...everything I learned was from observing over time, or from my Spirit Guardian Boo Boo".

Ixian apologized as they finished. Now Atrix finally understood the situation. It was no wonder Ixian was stuck with them, becuase they might be the only two who could understand them. So after they got dressed, Atrix went and wrapped his arms around both their shoulders, or at least tried to. He was not sure how Meeko would react given his usual morning self.

"Well then, I guess the first step for all of us is having fun then, huh? Lets eat breakfast quickly...I hear we are playing Dodge Ball after all..."

Compared to the Atrix Meeko normally saw, this Atrix after the crying and hearing of Ixian's story seemed just a tad bit...better.

Meeko smiled as Atrix tried to hug the two of them at the same time.

"Yeah dodge ball sounds great. But seeing as how the balls could go right through me, I think I might have an unfair advantage." He chuckled as he put the platter piled with pancakes down on the table in front of them. He knew it wouldn't last long, given Atrix's apatite. He grabbed some for himself and for Ixian too and cut it up for him and handed him the syrup.

He finished his food and waited for the other two. He was happy that Atrix seemed happier than usual, but it did seem a little odd. He was even getting used to having Ixian around too, it was starting to feel like a family.

Atrix, of course, finished his food first. No no, now even Ixian was looking at him with questionable eyes! He moved over to speak with Meeko.

"Uhhh....so, I also eat a lot but....isn't that just too much?!"

Ixian, who also devoured more then his body weight should allow, looked at Atrix with eyes that....no one could really determine that that emotion was. It was a total mystery. That said...

"Is this why there is no food eating contest scheduled for this camp?! Is it because they already know who the winner would be?!"

That was actually 100% accurate. There was no doubt Atrix would eat them all under the table, back out of the table, and then under the table again, before coming back out and wiping out another truck's worth of food. Atrix's appetitie was considered to be one of the School's Seven Mysteries, which also included anther oddball student by the name of Ollie.

And after that, a whistle was blown. It looked like soon, the dodgeball game would begin!

Meeko chuckled at Ixian's question.

"That's exactly why. No one would stand a chance against that boy's stomach. Rumor has it there's a black hole in there." He whispered playfully, but loud enough for Atrix to hear.

Just then the whistle blew and it was time for dodge ball. Meeko still wasn't sure about if he should be playing, but then he saw that the other students were going to be using their powers too, so it might be okay.

The teacher started explaining the rules for the people who didn't know. They all went to the big open field and there were a lot of balls in a line down the center and the boundaries were clearly marked. The teams lined up and took the field. The whistle blew and Meeko's intangibility field went up as he grabbed a ball and chucked it with all his might at one of the others on the other side.

"I...see...and I thought me and my brothers had massive stomachs..."

Ixian mentioned that, but before he could get in a response the whistle blew.

Atrix however could not ignore that.

"I do not have a black hole in my stomach! My eating habits are perfectly normal!"

Atrix said that, although lately he noticed they seemed to have increased so...no, he was sure he was a normal human. Even if he had awakened a strange and new power.

When the game started, the first thing that Atrix did was dodge the few dodgeballs that went his way. To be exact, they had been launched in his direction by wind magic. Meanwhile, a few students on both sides had summoned familiars to help deal with the situation. Atrix was quickly able to grab a ball as well when...

"!!! Meeko! Dont let them hit you! The dodgeballs are enchanted to phase through various existences, they are probably able to hit you even while intangible. Hell, even if someone turned into a gasous state it would hit!"

As Atrix warned him, a dodgeball went flying towards him, but was intercepted by Ixian who rolled across the ground and grabbed two more.

"Atrix, can you launch it in some way like them?"

"Launch....oh, I have that!"

Suddenly, Atrix summoned several shadow tendrils and used them to hit into the balls with sufficient force to break through a few student's who had barriers and get them out. However, Atrix spotted another one heading towards Meeko as well as another boy, and used the shadows to knock them away. He then intercepted another ball that was heading towards an unaware student and had the tendril knock it into his direction so he was able to catch it.

"Keep an eye out!"

"Eh! You are...right! Thanks!"

Ixian meanwhile looked for more dodgeballs to recover.

"We are losing people on our side as well! If we dont put more pressure on, we will lose!"

"Wait?! Is there some sort of bet or something?"

"Not that I know of, but I am new here! So lets assume there might be and work to win this!"

Meeko took the warning and put his hand out to catch the ball even though it should have gone right through his hand. He took refuge behind one of the slabs of earth that another teammate had pulled up using their powers.

"Well this sucks, they can enchant the balls and I got nothing I can do to hit anyone aside from throwing it. I'm screwed."

"Not quite" Hayden said after hearing Meeko.

"If you can get me more balls I can help you with launching them."

Meeko saw that Ixian and Atrix seemed to have a good system going, so he nodded and threw Hayden the ball. Hayden formed a basket on his back to work as a hopper for the balls. He then transformed his arms into large cannons. The balls were already enchanted to not break easily so the hopper on his back loaded the balls into the arm cannons and he would then use a contained energy blast to launch them at a blinding speed.

Meeko kept running across the field throwing the balls into the hopper on Hayden's back. Hayden was blasting them like a rapid-fire cannon, pegging a student with each shot, a few of them might have gotten concussions as they were hit in the head and fell over. Meeko was actually having fun with this and it was written all over his face. He was grinning and laughing as he watched Hayden blast the other team to dust and Atrix's tentacles throwing balls at almost the same speed and accuracy.

And so as their team put on the pressure, the opposing team was finally being pushed away. Atrix really did not want to risk the idea of there being some sort of punishment game after all, not with what he already knew, that there was going to be some dare game that everyone was getting dragged into. He could only shudder at what he would be made to do.

If it was just the boy's side, it might be fine, but....the girls side would also be there. And since Meeko told him of the girl's desire for him, it practically confirmed something embarassing would happen to Atrix. Actually, Meeko was likely going to get included too, a lot of girls found him cute as well. And Ixian was an unknown....

Out of the four, only Hayden was safe. After all, there were limits to what could be done in this dare game, but...Atrix was sure it would be embarassing. He just hoped that he didn't get dared to strip naked or something.

And after awhile, with the teams getting more intense, Atrix finally noticed something about Meeko.

"Hey, I know you cant use your claws to pop them, but...cant you sue them for extended reach to volley the ball right back to them? Without touching it so you yourself would get eliminated?"

He said that while he himself knocked some of them away with the shadow powers he knew almost nothing about.

And yet, as he said that, he saw someone new walk up. They had apparently been waiting in reserve, letting the enemy run out of energy before appearing to crush them. It was a Dwarf, and with that arm strength...he threw a ball with extreme speed that hit Ixian! Ixian went tumbling backwards and even lost a shoe before he stopped and the ball hit the ground, as the referee declared him out.

"Atro...Muuka....Avenge me!~" Ixian said as he rubbed his head, mispronouncing the names because he was dizzy from the hit.

"Meeko...Hayden....we gotta beat that guy, before he gets us all...I dont think any defense we have can block that".

"On it!" Meeko shouted back at Atrix. He then went running through the field collecting as many balls as possible, Hayden following behind trying to catch all the balls Meeko was throwing at his basket. Hayden switched his methods when the dwarf was brought in on the other side and changed one of his hand cannons into a shield with a section cut out for his cannons to fire through. So anything thrown at him would be deflected.

As Meeko loaded his hopper basket, Hayden took aim and blasted one right at the dwarf, hitting him square in the face. There were only three other people on the other team, but their own team had been reduced to the three of them as well.

"We're tied, let's win this shit!" Meeko called out. He was now getting into this and having a lot of fun.

"Yeah! Let's do thi..."

"Ehhh?! Why are you here Rivyan?!"

Suddenly, someone strange emerged from the crowd of people as Ixian gave an exclamation. This boy looked quite a bit older then Ixian, but otherwise looked so identical to him people figured they had to be brothers. He had white hair, red eyes, and a barcode marked on his cheek under his left eye, just like Ixian. However...

"Oh, I am not here technically. This is a clone of myself that I sent. After all...even though I had work to do, I didn't want to miss out on this or let it be too easy for you guys".

It appeared that although he was not actually here, Ixian's brother had sent a clone to make things difficult. The other two looked like "normal" Astrius Academy students, but this...this was clearly the final boss of the dodgeball game for Atrix, Meeko, and Hayden, plus Ixian who was rooting for them, and not his brother, from the sidelines.

"You can do it! Wipe the smug smile off his face!"

"You still holding that grudge Ixian?"

"How could you use your own brother as a stepping stool like that?! Even if it was for the escape!?"

"It was the most effective method. Now..."

Suddenly, all of the dodgeballs on his side began to float up into the air. For the record, there was a spell cast that would prevent the team with messing with any dodgeballs on the other side of the field. And with that, he then sent them rapid fire and windbreaking speeds right at them. Atrix managed to dodge one, but then another came right for his face. He managed to block that with a shadow tendril, however....a third dodgeball appeared that was thrown by one of the other two students and Atrix got hit right in the waist with incredibly force. It litterally knocked Atrix out of his shoes and socks and sent him rolling backwards, but before he was knocked out of grounds he managed to dig his heels into the dirt and stop himself. His clothes looked messy, and he got all dirty again though.

But more importantly, he was holding the ball that hit him with both hands, which meant that the student who threw it was out!

Atrix quickly darted over by Meeko to try and assume a defensive role against the clone, and shot some of his mana into Hayden's weapons to temporarily power them up. "I will defend! Meeko, recover! Hayden, attack! This will be our last stand! Lets do this!"

Atrix said that as he poured mana into his body. In addition, a benefit happened from having his shoes and socks knocked off just now. Since Atrix was barefoot, he could absorb mana from the ground much more easily and pour it into himself. Atrix then constructed several Astral Constructs, weapons and shields made of energy but also given physical form, that would defend them from this silly attack. He was clearly going all out.

With the excessive mana that Atrix was supplying him, Hayden's techno-mancy went into hyper drive. His eyes began to glow bright blue and all the weapons on the field left by the other tech geeks began to float in the air and were all drawn to Hayden. He took control of all of them. He soon had a whole barrier of weapons lined up along the front lines. He hooked them all together to one hopper that supplied balls to all the weapons.

Meeko was drastically grabbing and dodging as many balls as he could. The last person on the other side, aside from Ixian's brother, threw a ball as Meeko was bent over to pick up another one. The ball hit him right in the ass and sent him tumbling about a hundred yards. Meeko heard the boy celebrating, thinking he had taken Meeko out of the game, but it was soon clear that Meeko had manged to catch the ball with his tail as he held up the ball with it while he was lying face down in the dirt.

The ref called the thrower out and Meeko got back up and soon filled the giant hopper with balls.

"Atrix, dome us." He said so that Atrix would put a shield dome around the three of them now that the hopper was full. He knew that Ixian's brother would likely have a shield around him too, but Meeko had a plan. Meeko could project his intangibility field onto a spot on the energy shield. He focused it on the boy's head.

"Aim for his head, I have my intangibility field projected there, the balls will go through any shield he may be using and knock him out."
Hayden nodded and aimed all the weapons at the boy's head and fired.

And so as the plan was enacted and Meeko and Hayden worked together, Atrix continued to defend against the onslaught of dodgeballs. In fact, he questioned just how many dodgeballs had been provided, because it seemed like there were hundreds! Wasn't this epic dodgeball game a little too epic?!

"Guys! He is really putting on the pressure! I don't know how much longer!"

Atrix yelled that. Even if he was exceptional with magic, and had this new power, Rivyan's abilities seemed almost cheat like. He was pounding them heavily to the point that Atrix could barely keep up.

But as this happened, it appeared Hayden and Meeko had managed to set something up, and managed to penetrate Rivyan's defenses with some of the dodgeballs! Surprised by this, Rivyan was caught off guard. However, he was still able to dodge and...

"Thats it! Rivyan's clone is out! The winners are the left side with two people remaining!"

He thought he dodged them all, but by some manner of luck, one of the dodgeballs Hayden fired knocked into another dodgeball, and changed directions mid air and hit Rivyan on the back. This secured their victory.

"Yay! We did it!"

"Nice one you three! Though, sorry about the end there Atrix. Given the magic power he was using, that probably hurt".

Indeed, if Meeko and Hayden were to look over, it appeared taht Rivyan had sent balls on an alternate angle to take them out first. Atrix had blocked the first two with magic, but had to intercept the last one himself and was taken out at the same time as Rivyan.

"One more second, and it would have been three winners" Atrix said with a shrug. He rubbed his upper leg though, since it was where he recived the direct blow. "No matter, its fine its fine".

Atrix said that like his usual fines.

Meeko and Hayden both grabbed Atrix and Ixian and started hugging them, jumping up and down celebrating. However, as they celebrated, it suddenly dawned on Meeko that he had no idea what the reward was for winning.

"Hey guys, what exactly did we win?" Meeko asked with a curious yet cautious look on his face. Hayden's face contorted into one of confusion as well as he stopped to think.

"You know, I don't think I heard anyone say anything about what we'd win." It then seemed to put a damper on the mood that they may have done all of this for nothing more than bragging rights, but that wasn't to say that bragging rights weren't something they all needed. They were pretty much a group of social misfits and this win would be a boost to their popularity. Then Meeko remembered that later there was going to be a game of truth or dare which he was not too familiar with, but given the name could mean a lot of embarrassment for him.

Atrix and Ixian were both suddenly grabbed, hugged, and shaked up and down as they celebrated. Atrix also felt really happy too, although the boy in question was currently unable to move due to being grappled by Meeko. Personally, Atrix wanted to escape before Meeko said something dangerous, like he needed another bath. And given the level of dirt on him, he probably did...but, Atrix would use the defense of "being a boy so its okay to be dirty" and hope for the best. He just hoped that it was not so bad that Meeko decided to help and take him to the river.

However, that concern was sort of sidetracked when Meeko asked about what they won. The moment that was said, Atrix looked away attempting to feign ignorance, though given his poor acting skills it probably had the opposite effect. However, the one who then spoke up was Ixian.

"If I recall correctly, all the members of the winning team could get extra food, as much as they wanted, from the cafeteria and would be able to be excused from monday's classes next week after we get back. At least, that was scrawled in Atrix's notepad that I saw on the desk near the bed, along with 'sneak off and spend day working on newest version of Warp Gate in lab' and 'prepare extra food for all night...who would work all night though? That sounds silly".

As Ixian said that, Atrix paled a little. It was pretty obvious most of those benefits were in his own interest, and some of them seemed quite dangerous to allow Atrix...well, Atrix was a workaholic.

"Now Meeko, don't overreact now okay? All night was just an expression, I didn't mean that litterally....and of course, I meant I would take breaks! I promised right? Heh?"

Again, Atrix had poor acting skills.

"Please don't get mad and punish me..."

Meeko narrowed his eyes in a scowl and then a devious idea came to mind and his smile looked like that of a predator that had just cornered his prey.

"Of course. You're not going to spend all day working on your warp gate, because Hayden here is going to help you with it. Given his powers you two should be able to figure it out in a couple hours or so. You don't mind helping him with that do ya?"

"No, not at all, I love tech stuff like that and I've been looking for a challenge lately. If it keeps him out of trouble that's a plus too." Hayden grinned as he figured out what Meeko was doing.

"Good, then after you guys are finished with that, you and I are going to spend the rest of the day doing all sorts of fun stuff to tire your little hyperactive ass out so you'll be too damn tired to stay up late. I will also keep up the arrangement we have in the tent to keep you from running off at night when we get back to the dorm too. That isn't good for you and I'm not gonna have you working yourself to death." Meeko scolded. He felt like a parent right now and he didn't like being the bad guy.

"Look I know it seems like I'm angry, but I'm just worried about you. You're the closest thing I have to family here and I... I care about you. I know you think you're handling it okay, but over working yourself like this is going to take a toll on you soon if you keep it up and, at this school, it's highly likely that it'll happen while you're doing something dangerous." He then leaned in and gave him a big hug that lifted him up off the ground.

"As for the extra food, was there any fine print on the contest rules? Seems like there would an Atrix clause in there somewhere. As for your punishment for hiding this from me, you aren't going to get a shower tonight I'm gonna take you down to the river and you're gonna get your bath there."

"Wha...wait a minute! Don't you think thats a bit much! I mean...I mean...I think this is extremely unneccessary! I can wash myself! And...and..." Atrix pleaded as he tried to squirm out of Meeko's hug, his feet kicking the air as he tried to escape. He looked like he was extremely desperate and getting even more embarrassed. Oddly enough, it was less bathing in the river that embarrassed him, and more being bathed by someone else. That was because in the culture of his tribe, the more independent one was the better they were seen. Of course, there was a limit to that, and it was not like they looked down on people who were dependent on others, but still.

"And...and...Ixian is dirtier then me! So he needs it more!"

Ixian meanwhile pouted.

"I didn't do anything bad though! Dont drag me into this!"

"You read my journal without permission!"

Incidentally, although it was a totally different wrongdoing then what Atrix was doing, Ixian had looked at his personal belongings without permission. And also...

"Be...besides Meeko! My body needs less sleep then you normally! You can't apply normal standards to me! And there is so much to learn and experiment! It would be bad if I feel behind the other students! Not to mention coffee really does work wonders as well!"

Atrix also muttered some random stuff in his defense, and occasionally shot Hayden glances pleading for help while he tried to squirm his way out of Meeko's arms.

"First of all, I'm not the one that's gonna be washing you, I'm just gonna be there to make sure you don't try to skip out on washing yourself." Meeko said as he set Atrix down.

"As for you mister," he said looking at Ixian. "You were snooping in someone's private stuff and you also got pretty dirty, so you'll be getting a bath in the river too." He said looking sternly at Ixian.

"Look, Atrix, I know your body doesn't need a lot of sleep like some people, but it's not good for your mind to be constantly pushing yourself to your limits. Your mind works better when you give it a break every now and then. You need to get sleep if you want your mind to function correctly. Sleep deprivation can cause people to go crazy. Please do this, not for me, but for you. You'll think clearer and your mind will be sharper." Meeko told him. It was clear he cared about Atrix, he was becoming the little brother he never had and he actually kinda liked it.

"Wha...what?! Don't get me pulled into this! Hayden, protect me!" Ixian declared as he hid behind Hayden. Indeed, just like Atrix who got tumbled through the dirt at the end there, Ixian was also very dirty. However, neither of the two particularly minded it. What they did mind however was the idea of being watched while bathing by someone who was fully clothed. "If...if you make us do this...then...then....you gotta do it first! Or at least go in with us! To prove its safe!"

"Or...or...you know...we could just not do it at all! I mean, I am perfectly fine doing stuff! I can be responsible! And on those earlier points...I don't want to wake you up while you are in the middle of sleeping, so I should just leave you be and such!"

As such, Atrix and Ixian attempted to defend some of their dignity, even if Atrix's was near non-existant to start with.

And then, suddenly, they were called to the next activity....the Tree Climbing Activity!

"Oh look! Next activity time!" Atrix said, hoping to distract Meeko and make him forget.

Meeko's devilish grin got bigger as he gave Hayden a subtle nod.

"Oh, you won't be going in alone, I know better than that. I'm the one that'd gonna scrub your back and all the places you can't reach."

"Sounds like you might be in over your head there, kiddo, I'll come with and help you guys out."

Then the next event, tree climbing, was announced.

"Oh sweet, I got the edge on this one." He smiled as he lifted his hands and retracted his claws.

"Wait wait! Hold on though! I thought you just said you wouldn't bathe us!" Atrix said as he turned all red. This was understandable though. Although Atrix was rather fast, and could climb rather well, he wasn't really strong or flexible and used his mind more. Because of that, there was a good amount of his body he was unable to reach, and Meeko knew it because Atrix confided things to Meeko.

He also looked at Meeko and saw the devilish grin. "Wait...you...you are not lying right now right? You only plan to wash where I cant reach? And...and...you don't need to Hayden!"

"Wait...Hayden has tech...your not planning to make an embarassing home video right?" Ixian also asked, questioning Hayden while nervous. Of course, neither Atrix or Ixian expected, or at least they hoped they wouldn't, spread any embarrassing photos or videos of them from this. But that did not mean they might not do it to poke fun at them.

And soon after he asked that, them and the other campers were directed towards the Tree Climbing Event. Only, it was not normal tree climbing. The trees would be trying to hit and knock you off as you climbed. And also...

"To Ixian and whoever else this represents, no flying!"

"Awww".

"You have to climb with your own hands and feet! You cant use magic tendrils or whatever to let you keep hold, though using magic to enhance your own body, or using claws, or such is allowed! Oh, no jetpacks or hover tech either, and no teleporting. You gotta climb it properly and naturally, is what we are saying".

Meeko realized he was sending mixed signals about being in the water.

"Well I wasn't going to be in there originally, but you aren't giving me much choice since you're complaining so much. I gotta make sure you get clean." He said before the tree climbing was announced and the rules were gone over.

All of the students went to their trees and got ready. The tree creatures were huge. The teacher lifted a starter pistol and fired it into the air. Meeko was sure he had this contest in the bag until he saw Hayden morph his hands into metal claws that looked dangerous. Meeko knew he was going to have to step his game up. As everyone took to their trees, Meeko used both his hand and feet claws to start running up the tree. It didn't take long before the branches were swinging at the people climbing them. and both he and Hayden got knocked off of their trees.

"I got it!" Meeko said when he was hit with a great idea to win. He started to produce a fast-acting herbicide from his claws and as he climbed he injected his poison and killed the creature as he did so it didn't fight him. He was now able to climb with no distractions and would make it to the top in no time.

"What normal person wouldn't complain?!" Atrix protested, forgetting entirely he was not normal in the slightest. In fact, out of all of them, Hayden was probably the only one who could classify himself as "normal". So in essence, Atrix's protest was entirely unfounded and irrelivent. "And it was Ixian who said that in the first place, not me!"

Once the contest started, neither Atrix nor Ixian could make the same progress as Meeko was able to. Indeed, when the branches started swinging, Ixian soon found himself knocked up and landed near Meeko, getting even dirtier. Atrix however, he had two things going for him in regards to this challenge. First of all, he was used to climbing trees. Atrix had gathered up his shoes and socks, but not put them all. This let his bare feet grip the holds, and hold on better.

The second was that he was used to getting bullied, and his vitality was insanely high due to the Demon King Blood in his system that had awakened. In other words, even though his climbing speed was not as fast as Meeko's, his grip and endurance were top notch and he was not knocked off once. But, his pace was a bit slower.

Still, he was better off then a few others. However, it did not take long for Meeko to reach Atrix's level once more.

Meeko saw how close Atrix was getting to the top and he kicked up his speed. He looked like he was running vertically up the side of the tree and even went intangible as he ran face-first through some of the branches. It wasn't long before he made it to the top of his dead tree monster.

"I did it! Wooo I made it first!" He started cheering just seconds before Atrix made it.
