let's get higher,
Clutching tissue to his nose and extending out his arm, there was no worse place James would rather be right now. He had been battered and bruised and humiliated. It wasn't that he'd lost the fight against that idiot - who really had been asking for a smack, if James did think so himself – and broken his first two fingers on his left hand because he had swung awkwardly. That was really the embarrassing thing about it all, because he never ended up breaking anything. So here the Ares cabin leader was; dried blood making a trail across his face, holding bloody tissues to his face and trying not to bash his hand against anything that would cause him more pain.

Maybe he should’ve tried to be more mature by this point; he was nearly sixteen years old and he had a level of pressure on him as he had to look after his cabin. He knew getting into fights wasn’t really the wisest thing for him and his already-bad reputation, but he couldn’t help himself sometimes. He wasn’t good with controlling himself lately; James was wound up so tight and spread so thin that he really was just becoming a continually annoyed teenager which was quite a change to the relatively-sensitive kid he had been only months before. He didn’t want to be, of course not, but all the bull life had dropped on him there was really no judging him. His mother was an alcoholic, her boyfriend abused her, and he had been flown halfway across the world to a place where he was surrounded by even more violence and chaos. The trouble was, no one was even bothered to find out why he was always pissed; they just assumed he was a cruel guy, but he wasn’t. He really wasn’t.

Pulling the tissue away from his sticky nose with his good hand, James realized that his nose-bleed was over. Throwing the dirty tissue on the clean bed-covers next to his as he sat there, he cussed.

ooc; wow this is bad do I care no not really

xTaylor Brooks
xTaylor was growing restless. She had never been the kind of person who could sit still in one place for long and now here she was, sitting on an immaculately white bed with her back to the wall, her fingers tapping on the sheets in a fast-paced rhythm. She sighed every few moments just for something to do. It was hard to resist the urge to get out of this place and explore the home she did not remember.

Taylor had arrived three days ago, courtesy of of a certain demititan exhausted to the bone. She was quickly brought to the infirmary - a shocking sight for her, considering that the ones who managed it were kids - where they puzzled over her reappearance. They had no clue as to what happened to her and she was no help, constantly streaming questions regarding this 'camp' and what the hell she was doing here. Ultimately, she was asked to come to the infirmary every day at a certain time so that they could examine her more. The arrangement bore fruitless results so far. One of the kids had even gone frustrated to the point where he accused her of pretending she was clueless about everything. Said kid was now recuperating in the other room, a black-and-blue bruise forming around his left eye.

Flexing her fingers, Taylor snapped back to reality when she heard a boy cuss two beds away. She laughed bitterly. "Bad day, huh?" she said, giving him a resentful smile. It would be nice to have someone to talk to, even if it was people she did not know (or remember). "Join the club."

let's get higher,
How long did it take to get some service around here? James just wanted an Apollo healer to come along and look at his hand so he could then go. It felt like the kids around him were leaving him to last as if they wanted to avoid seeing to the scary Ares camper, although maybe leaving him till last wasn't the best idea as he was going to loose his temper; and no one really wanted to see James loose his temper.

Snapped from his thoughts when he heard a girl call out to speak to him, he just raised an eyebrow to find that it wasn't an Apollo camper, but another teenager that seemed to be stuck here. He didn't really look at her for long, touching his nose with his fingers to check that there was no running blood still, inspecting his fingertips. "Slight understatement, but yeah; it's been crap." He nodded, his lips pressed in a grim line. He finally looked back at the girl a few beds away from him, taking a moment to process her before his eyes widening and his body straightening a little. "Taylor?" He question, both alarmed and surprised. "What are you doing...what...what did you do to your hair?"

xTaylor Brooks
xTaylor chuckled along. The boy's day might be crap, but she felt sure she got the wrong end of the stick. He wasn't the one who lost all his memories, was he? But before she could retort, the boy uttered something that completely took her aback - her name.

"You know me?" she asked, gaping a little. Realization soon sank in and she rose to her feet, jogging towards the bed beside him. She flashed him a huge grin. Finally - another person who knew her! Maybe this trip to the infirmary wouldn't be as boring as she had thought. She looked maybe a little too eager, slightly leaning towards him as she sat, but Taylor couldn't care less what she looked. Her top priority was to talk to this boy, asap.

"My hair? Oh yeah, some girl did this to me yesterday. Believe me, I was not in the position to stop her," she said, grimacing a little as she ran a finger through the now red locks. Damn girl. She made her believe she was going to a place where they could look at her records or something then all of a sudden they were standing in front of a hair salon. What was more embarrassing about it was that Taylor actually fell for it. Still, it was hard to back out when the girl showed off what she can do, and fire beats ice after all.

"Forget why I'm here. I need to ask a more pressing question. Okay, this might sound a little weird and all, but..." she paused, taking a moment to get a closer look at his face. Nope, she did not recognize him at all. Although, he looked like he could wrap a lot of girls around his finger if he tried. Taylor took a deep breath, looking hopeful, before asking the very question that got many people scratching their heads.

"What's your name again?"

let's get higher,
An eyebrow shot up immediately when Taylor started to ask stupid question, making the fifteen year old a little confused. James and Taylor weren’t the easiest people, and she had really started to treat him like crap, in his opinion. So they hadn’t spoke to each-other in many months, and James hadn’t really thought anything of it; she didn’t want to see him, and he didn’t really want to see anyone. He was just really keeping up conversation until she was going to cut him off or something. “Of course.” He trailed, looking at her as if she was stupid. Was she messing with him?

A little taken back when she moved so fast and so close to him, James wondered if she was going to turn around and have a go at him or something, and ran his good hand through his dark hair. He didn’t shift away from the closeness or feel awkward by her enthusiasm, because that wasn’t really the type of person he was, but he thought that it was a little strange. “It looks good?” He made a compliment. He actually made a compliment. He hadn’t done that for a while…well, he hadn’t done it for anyone other than an Athena girl that was meant to hate him. He was starting to turn a little too soft again, and he wasn’t really sure that was a good thing.

His blue eyes studying Taylor as he tried to find out if she was messing around her not, he was a little shocked to see that she wasn’t and that she was being serious. “Have you taken something?” He questioned, half hoping that she had so he knew that she didn’t really mean anything she was saying. Uh…James? You know? You practically broke my leg? You whole thing in New York with...Zeb or whatever that loser’s name was?”

xTaylor Brooks
x"Thanks," Taylor said, a little relieved. Well, at least her new hair color didn't make her look like crap. But from the way that he was looking at her, she could surmise that her hair was the least of his confusions. She sighed, exasperated. After explaining the same thing to the Apollo healers and the kids in that ice-cold cabin, Taylor began to get sick of telling her story over and over again.

"No, I haven't taken anything. Maybe they should give me something to clear my head - wait, scratch that. My head is already empty," she said, massaging her temples. Great, now she was probably not making sense. She squinted back at him, as if staring hard enough would ring a bell in her head and make her realize that this was 'James,' the kid whose leg she broke -

"Wait, no kidding? I broke your leg?" she said incredulously, her eyes flickering downwards for the briefest moment. She could not restrain the small smug smile tugging at her lips. "Huh... Guess that must have been a long time ago. Anyway, Zeb is a stupid name," she added, snorting, but she was more curious as to how she actually caused injury to this muscular boy. "How exactly did I manage to break your leg?"

let's get higher,
James wasn't the cleverest kid; it didn't take a genius to see that. With both ADHD and dyslexia, which most campers had, he was one of the teenagers that didn't try in school and probably never would. So he had no clue why Taylor was acting weird, and just continued to stare at her as if she had grown another head or something. He couldn't resist letting out a joke at her expense though, smirking even though he found the whole situation absolutely bizarre. "I always knew you didn't have a brain." He had no clue what was happening, and half expecting cameras to rush out of every corner of the room and some annoying, squeaky American to burst out and scream 'you've been pranked!'.

But that didn't happen.

Instead she just continued to ask him questions about things he didn't really want to go over again, seeing as she had been there. He tried to scratch the dried blood off his face with his short nails and he frowned at her further. "Sort of, I'm not explaining it to you. You were there. Why you acting stupid anyways?" he asked, before nodding in slight agreement. "A stupid name for a stupid guy."

xTaylor Brooks
xA few minutes into the conversation, Taylor no longer wondered why she had broken the guy's leg before. She retained her smile still, pretending that his joke hadn't stung, but deep inside she was contemplating on breaking both of his legs. It looked like James was bent on not giving her any of the information she would have liked. "Well... fine, be that way then." She glanced at the dried blood on his face and the way he held one of his hands in a careful manner. No, it was not a good idea to break another part of his anatomy. Next time, when he had fewer injuries maybe.

A familiar voice called her name and she turned to see one of the healers who were assigned to examine her. He seemed surprised to see her talking to James. Taylor noticed the slight hesitation in his step, as if he did not want to go any closer. "Uh, you can go now. Same time tomorrow, alright? And if you happen to remember anything, tell us immediately." He turned to James, frowning. "Hang on, James, I'll be back for you." Then he scampered off, still white-faced and a little relieved to leave the scene.

"Well, I suppose that's my cue," Taylor said, rising to her feet. She offered James a bitter smile. "Nice meeting you, James. Or maybe it's better to say nice meeting you again, but I can't remember the first time so it'd feel weird." She almost stretched out her hand for him to shake but thought better of it, so her arm just made a little jerk before settling back on her side. What exactly did she do to get the boy to be this way? Perhaps he acted like this to everyone? Small consolation, but it seemed better to believe that than to assume that he considered her as an enemy of some sort. "See you around... I think."

let's get higher,
Expecting the kid that came over to finally see to his and his mangled bones, he didn't think much of how he sort of acted differently when he came closer to James. everyone seemed to do that, right? He didn't really think much of it, just nodding when the guy addressed and told him thatb he would be back in a minute. "About time, man." He told the guy, but he was already leaving quickly. The Ares cabin-leader could probably come across as slightly scary, but that was just a shot in the dark.

Eyes moving away from the direction that the guy had gone and back to the girl sitting next to him, James rose his eyebrows at her and tried to see if there was anything wrong with her physically, seeing as she had to apparently come back here everyday. His curiosity got the better of him, wanting to ask her further questions instead of just letting her go. "You don't remember anything? Anything at all? Like, the time I punched my brother in the face for you or...I don't know, when I was...stuck in New York?" He sounded confused, which was exactly what he felt. "What happened to you?"

xTaylor Brooks
xTaylor was glad and relieved to have a reason to hang around, especially now that it seemed like she and James had been through a lot more than she originally thought. She let it pass how he could come off as an ass sometimes. A scary one too, from the way the healer seemed a little too relieved to get out of the scene.

She grimaced, cocking her head to the side. "Hold on, let me get this straight. You punched your brother for me and I broke your leg?" Her forehead creased in confusion. This was even more confusing than she expected. "Or did I break your leg on accident? That makes a little more sense..." And it makes me sound less worse, she added in her thoughts. But that was not the end of it. James kept saying something about New York. Taylor placed a finger under her chin. "And what happened in New York? How did you get stuck? What, did you fall in a manhole and you got stuck so I had to pull you out?"

let's get higher,
James' longish brown hair sort of flopped over his forehead as he looked up at Taylor, who suddenly seemed interested in his again. It had been a long time since the both of them had had a decent conversation, or any at all. He wanted to make a comment about that, but he guessed it would be lost of her anyway. He was in a great position, really, to just take advantage of her and make things up. He could certainly leave some details out about the things he really didn't want people remembering.

Making a slightly impatient noise as he blew air out of his mouth, the English teenager started to explain even if he didn't really want to, "No, not really. We had a race and you cheated by distracting me and basically made me break my leg." the explanation really didn't sound as bad as it had started to, "So when we came over here to get me fixed up, you pissed off one of my brothers and, well, you get the picture." he shrugged then before his eyes darkened a little at the next statement she made, not really wanting to talk about that or even think about it, "Yeah, I feel down a manhole." He rolled his eyes, hoping she would just drop that little bit.

xIt was then that Taylor wished she had not asked in the first place. She shifted uncomfortably, running a hand through her hair as she glanced at a point beside James rather than him. "Wow... okay, I don't really know what to say." Should she apologize? Maybe she already did, if it happened a long time ago. If so, there was no need to apologize again, right?

His next statement made her smirk. Was he going to play along with her joke or what? Perhaps Taylor made a lucky guess and it was what really happened back then. "Seriously?" She laughed, shaking her head. "Well, what does 'Zeb' have to do with it then?"

let's get higher,
It seemed that even memory-lost Taylor wasn't very good at saying 'sorry'. Neither was he, so that was okay. he sort of grunted, which was the really the whole thing over with. That summed up their whole relationship really; they both treated each-other like crap but neither one of them had the balls to make it up to the other one. He just looked down at his bad hand for a moment, taking in the weird position of his two fingers and wondering if he could try and snap them back into place himself. It was probably best if he didn't attempt it.

Glad that she sort of accepted his joke, James grinned a little and looked back at her, taking in her own smirk. He nodded as if he was going along with his, eyes widening as if he was being serious. "Oh yeah. Zeb pushed me in, obviously. I don't know what you ever saw in that guy." He shook his head, remembering the childish little kid and never being able to understand how he was older than James.

xJames wasn't so bad, she realized. He could actually be half-decent when he wasn't cracking offensive jokes at her expense. Of course, she would take this opinion back if he was taking advantage of her situation right now. Seeing as she really had no reason not to trust him - she let it slide, his earlier comment regarding her brain - Taylor chose to go for it.

The manhole thing was so absurd though. Taylor rolled her eyes but grinned all the same. "Sounds like there's more to this Zeb person than meets the eye. Don't worry; I don't remember what I saw in him either." She sighed, training her gaze upward. How much did she actually miss? Just how many precious memories were taken away from her? What she would give to have them all back... "Tell me more about Zeb."

let's get higher,
There was so much to cover, about their history. He had developed a little bit of a crush on her when they had first met, and he had really taken any opportunity possible to kiss her, which she hadn't really been a fan of. And then she picked that Demeter guy over him, which had really hurt, so he sort of turned into even more of an arsehole from there on out. The sensitive part of James was well-hidden...for now.

"Zeb? I think his name was Zeb. Zeb...Zaine...Zach! Yeah, that was it, Zach!" He felt a little proud of himself for remembering the name of whom he disliked, which was a long list so it was quite an achievement, before letting his voice go back deeper and more monotone. "He was an idiot, I guess. You and him...dated for a bit, and stuff," He tried to say it as if he didn't really care, although he wasn't sure whether he was successful. "I actually heard he got you preggers, but that's obviously just a rumor." He chuckled a little then, not being able to help himself.

xTaylor Brooks
xTaylor's heart sank. She dated someone? Why did no one tell her? Well, no guy came to see her in the Khione cabin since she came back so she figured that she and this Zach guy broke up sometime ago. She contemplated pressing James for more details about the whole thing but it did not take an idiot to tell that there was something else in his voice... And the way he avoided the New York incident like a plague...

"Really?" Taylor said skeptically. She made a show of looking at her belly and chortled at how ridiculous the idea was. She? Pregnant? If that was real, no matter what happened, she should at least remember something as huge as that. "Rumors are rumors, I s'pose." Taylor looked down on her feet, savoring the short silence that followed. Was there a way to get all her memories back?

But enough about her. How rude of her to talk about mostly herself. "So... how've you been doing?" she asked, genuinely interested.

let's get higher,
He was literally done with waiting, deciding this before he would answer Taylor’s questions. He let his right hand hover over his left crippled fingers. How did you click fingers back into place? He wasn’t even sure, grimacing as he hesitated, even though he thought that pausing was a sign of weakness. He had no clue what to do, so chose to distract himself further by choosing to continue to talk to Taylor then and mess up his fingers even more afterwards.

“Yeah. Rumours are rumours.” Although he really tried to uninvolved himself with anything like that, because it would probably just involve himself with he hearing rumours about himself or something. He had just picked up of her name as remembered it, he guessed. When the conversation went onto him, he could help but look up at her again and smirk a little before back at his hand, amused, “Me? I’ve been…alright. Me and tori, uh…never mind…you wouldn’t know who that was anyway. But I’ve been fine, I guess. Nothing much to say, really.”

x"Tori, huh?" Taylor let the name roll on her tongue but, as expected, nothing came up. Figures. "Who is this Tori person? She your girlfriend? And I wouldn't try that if I were you," she added with a slight smirk.

She of course noticed how James eyed his hand, as if contemplating the best way to put his fingers back into place. He seemed to have an impatient streak, quite like her, judging from how he seemingly did not care about the kid who should have been back by now. Taylor shook her head slowly, still grinning. Maybe it would be fun to watch him try and right his hand. Sounded a little cruel though, now that she thought about it. Still, she watched him closely in case he decided to really break his hand more. James might need someone to knock some sense into him before he actually attempted to do such recklessness.

let's get higher,
With another little shrug, James’ little smirk dropped and he sort-of tried to shake everything off nonchalantly. “Ex-girlfriend.” He amended then, putting emphasis on the first syllable. He didn’t really think he cared anymore, because he was James and James didn’t care abut nobody anymore, but it hurt him a little. The rock had feelings too, y’know, although in this context James was referring himself as the rock, not to be confused with Dwayne Johnson.

“Should I?” He grinned then, thinking that it may be funny for a short second before the pain would kick in. His brain never had really worked right when it came to violence or pain or something like that. It didn’t really seem like anyone was going to come over anytime soon. So, before he could talk himself out of it, he grabbed the mangled fingers, pulling on them and pushed them back in as hard as he could. They looked worse than they had before, although the vein on the side of James’ neck poked out as he started shouting profanities at the top of his lungs that basically showed how much that had actually hurt.

xTaylor Brooks
x"Oh." Taylor said, not quite sure what to say. James threw the word out with ease. Was he perhaps used to saying it all the time? Maybe he had tons of exes that the loss of one did not really bother him much. But then, his smirk did fade a little when he said the word. Did that small gesture mean anything? Before Taylor could dwell on that matter, James started to do the very thing she warned him not to. She was on her feet in a flash. "Wait, don't - "

Still too late. James had already pushed his fingers back before Taylor grabbed his good hand. A loud crack sliced the air and she cringed. Flinching at the curses streaming from the boy (and it was deafening, considering that her ears were now rather close to his mouth), Taylor shifted his hand away for good measure, although she doubted he would try anything else this time. She gagged at the sight of his mangled fingers. "Congratulations, James. You have now completely changed the anatomy of your hand."

let's get higher,
James probably should've waited, because trying to fix his broken fingers himself was a lot more painful than he thought originally. He was so distracted that he didn't even think anything of Taylor grabbing his hand, which was the first time she had really touched him without her acting all funny like she had a few months ago. He could look at his fingers, as he had seen worse being the Ares cabin-leader and having to look over little aggressive kids, but it wasn't a pretty sight. He would probably do something stupid like try to bend them back, back Taylor was pushing his hand far enough away that he wouldn't try.

"Holy crap that hurt." He finally lowered his voice again, but it was still a little shaky. "Holy crap. I shouldn't have done that." He would normally find Taylor comment amusing, but right now he was in quite a lot of pain that he was trying to hide unsuccessfully, his face turning red and the muscles in his jaw clenching a lot. "Can I get some freaking help?!" He yelled again, although he didn't say 'freaking' if you catch my drift.

xIt took all of Taylor's willpower not to throw up. Why oh why did James have to do that? He might have been used to seeing such morbid injuries but Taylor, on the other hand, was afraid that her lunch would soon make a reappearance. "Wow, ya think?" she said weakly, trying to look anywhere besides his hand. Despite everything, her lips managed to slightly twitch as she fought back an amused grin. Idiot.

Before Taylor could decide to drag those healers back to sort out the mess that was James, three younger kids burst into the room. One of them reluctantly fell back at the sight, and Taylor recognized him to be the one who promised that he would be back. Perhaps staying away would be a better option for him right now. Taylor doubted that he would be in one piece after he made James wait for so long.

Meanwhile, the other two boys went to James' aid immediately and soon enough, Taylor found herself being pushed aside as the 'experts' worked. She stared blankly at the scene unfolding before her. It was just so bizarre to see kids way younger than her work like doctors. Taylor had to restrain herself from asking if they actually knew what they were doing. They looked like boy scouts administering first aid - without the uniforms and the badges, that is. Her ADHD kicking in, Taylor took to pacing around in the otherwise empty room as she waited. She barely caught snatches of the conversation but she did her best to tune it out. No way was she going to even try to understand all that talk about doctor stuff. It did not stop her from hearing how one of the kids tsked though, scolding James for worsening the situation. Taylor bit back a smile. James was probably not going to like that one.

let's get higher,
It felt like as soon as James had yelled, three kids started to run in. Did they know how stupid it was to piss of an Ares kid. The Ares cabin-leader, at that! He saw the disgusted look on Taylor's face and noticed how she was trying not to look at his mangled hand, smirking a little despite the situation. He could remember a similar reaction to his leg beforehand. It seemed like, even though she couldn'tt remember much, she hadn't really changed.

"What took you so long, asswipes?" James demanded when the Apollo kids finally scurried over, and he thought the insult was acceptable seeing as the wait had just made him do things that would put him in severe pain. He didn't really process any of the intelligent crap they spoke to him, only dropping in once or twice with insults or criticism, and the more they touched his hand the more it freaking hurt. When they went on to chastise him about what he did to his hand, he sort of lost it again, exploding, "This is not my fault, you little pieces of crap! if you hadn't made me wait so long I wouldn't have tried to do your job for you!" The younger kids winced a little as the Ares teenager started to clench his good fist, probably a little scared. "Now hurry up before I sock you one, got it?! And could you please make it a little less painful because it kills! Thank you!" He realized he had adapted a heavily sarcastic tone, but he was using 'please' and 'thank you' right?

xTaylor Brooks
xTaylor could not stop the laugh that burst forth from her lips. She really wasn't supposed to be laughing, given James' predicament right now, but the look on the healers' faces! She would not be surprised if they peed their pants while working on his hand. Wow, she thought to herself, that'd be so gross. With her hands clasped together behind her back, Taylor drew closer and positioned herself at the side so that James could see her easily if he turned his head.

"Y'know, I wouldn't be antagonizing the people who could put me back together," she said, smirking. The comment caused one of the boys to give her a brief judging look and Taylor immediately knew what he was on about - that other kid she punched for accusing her of lying. She shrugged and raised her hands. "In my defense, I am mentally unstable and he was definitely asking for it," she said promptly. The boy shook his head as he cut up a piece of biscuit - which Taylor recognized to be the very same delicious cracker they gave her the first time she got there, tasting like overloaded chocolate ice cream - she could see the offending word written in his eyes: hypocrite.

Cracking and flexing her knuckles, she stopped and thought better of it as the boy offered the biscuit for James to take. She should listen to her own advice. James would not appreciate it if she knocked the kid out after all the waiting and the pain he had to endure.

let's get higher,
James was really used to pushing people around; having a higher position compared to his siblings and probably being one of the best-known Ares children ensured this. He ended up in the infirmary a lot, they all knew, whether it was because he was hurt or because Mr D had dragged him along or something to apologize to one of the kids he had got in here. He didn't understand how he still had the position, seeing as he was just as bad as the little kids when it came to controlling himself; maybe it helped that he wasn't the only cabin-leader, as he also elected June, so maybe having two of them helped.

Looking over and a bit relieved to see that the Khione girl was still here, James' smirk got a little wider when he listened to her comments, which hadn't really changed. "They wouldn't dare do anything to an Ares cabin-leader." He told her, although he was sort of threatening the little kids as well and if they pissed him off anymore or didn't do a good job, he would break their own hands and make them try and fix their fingers themselves, the same way he had. He watched the discrete exchange between one of the boys and Taylor, his grin expanding even more. It only disappeared when he was given the medicine, almost snatching it out of the kid's hand. It tasted like the melted caramel that his grandparents used to get from their friend, whilst he stayed in Miami.
