Son of Athena

"No," Jackson said, for maybe the fiftieth time. Oliver wore an indignant look, but he knew better than to talk back to his uncle. All he wanted anyway was a pet. He had never been able to have a pet. It wasn't even about having something living that he could just own and toy with- it was about having an animal, a dog perhaps, that wouldn't judge him like humans. Someone that he could be in the company of without worrying about his introverted attitudes. But, his pleas were to no avail with his uncle, and he never obtained any sort of pet.

The pup bounded energetically on its sets of fore and hind paws, frolicking without care in the grass. It seemed somewhat uncoordinated, but there was no blame to it; it was only a week or so old. Well, a week at least since Oliver discovered it. Despite this, it was remarkable how quickly it had grown. It no longer fit in the palm of the hand, but rather had to be cradled between two hands.

The puppy's ears poked up above the blades of moderately tall grass that outlined the lake. It was a safe distance from the waters edge, and seemed to enjoy the air outside, as it was getting crisp and the orange and red leaves made enjoyable sounds as they crunched beneath it's paws. This sound seemed to frighten the dog when he first heard it, but by and by he began to revel in it.

Oliver sat not far from this curious creature, who's energy resources were seemingly endless. The boy's eyes watched the pup carefully, never removing them for more than a few seconds, in order to ensure the dog did not wander to far or too near the water's edge.

It was a new experience to have ownership and responsibility of the living creature. He had had no idea at first what to feed it, but found that the bacon from the morning's breakfast did just fine. The pup slept just below Oliver's bunk, in the shadow, but it never failed to make itself known with the occasional growl while socked-feet slid by.

This brought up another notable feature of this wolf. So young, it had already shown signs of a distinct attitude forming. Like Oliver, the pup seemed feisty and alert, but at the same time withdrawn and analytic. It's eyes were hard to read, and it always was interested in something. When it first entered Oliver's room, it immediately sniffed out the perimeter, exploring every inch of the space. However, before it finished it's goal, Oliver's siblings, in a bustle of adoration, crowded the pup. It was quick to defend itself, snapping at fingers that came near, and letting out a high-picthed growl, though nothing near a bark or yip.

After some time, a noise caught Oliver's attention. The pup was still crunching up leaves before him, but he saw something new to his left. Turning his head, his light heart sank.

Xavier Reid Hastings
[font=courier new]Xavier watches with a smirk, as the small wolf cub runs in front of him eagerly exploring her new home. "Careful Nova"the son of Zeus calls out as she gets too close to a group of campers. Not that he cares about the campers, but he does feel like it's his responsibility to make sure she doesn't get into too much trouble.

Upon reaching the lake, Xavier slows his pace deciding that there's no point in keeping up with Nova. He can watch her from here, it's not like she could get into that much trouble. Smiling lightly he sits down in the grass and reclines back into a laying position, his hands folded behind his head. It's a fairly nice day out considering it's November. A perfect day to spend at the lake. Especially because there's not that large of a crowd. Letting out a sigh he slowly closes his eyes to just relax.

Eventually he is awoken by the sound of exciting barking. Opening his eyes he sits up and looks around the lake. His eyes immediately land on Nova who is playing around by the edge of the lake with another wolf cub. The site of another wolf cub can only mean it's one of her litter mates. This brings a smile to Xavier's face as he slowly stands up. Shoving his pockets into his feet, he looks around to see who's wolf it is. When he found Nova, she was alone in the woods with her siblings and he and a group of fellow campers had discovered them and decided to keep them. He's found himself becoming friends with the others, well all of them except for Oliver Hayes.

That's when Xavier's eyes land on the owner of the other cub, and he immediately opens his mouth to let out a few choice swear words. Of course out of the four people it could be it's the one that he doesn't want to see, Oliver Hayes. Balling his hands into fists, he stands there watching the boy. If he didn't hate him so much he might attempt talking to him, for the cubs sake. But he just does not see himself doing that right now. So instead he turns to focus on Nova and her sibling, which brings a smile to his face.

Son of Athena

His eyes met Xavier's for a moment. A fleeting moment that gripped Oliver's heart and tossed it into the lake, where it froze and sank to the bottom and buried itself in the sand. He was frightened, for that moment, that Xavier was going to erupt in his typical fit of rage, or throw some kind of snide comments at him. An even bigger shock occurred when Xavier turned away, and did something odd with his face, where the corners of his mouth turned upwards toward the sky. Was he... smiling?

Oliver had never seen him smile before. It was as if he was looking at a whole new face. His loathing brown eyes, turned away from Oliver, seemed to glint with a light of happiness, and his eyebrows slanted the opposite way that they would usually furrow, giving his face an inviting look. To perfect the look was an imperfection of a slightly slanted, thin lipped smile that made the face asymmetrical. It was startling, and Oliver could have sworn that it was not Xavier Hastings that was near him.

When Oliver tore his eyes from the utterly shocking sight, he noticed that his wolf pup had been joined with another. There was no doubt that it was Xavier's, since he had been in the forest at the time of the litter's discovery. The two wolf pups were playing. Oliver's was distinguishable as opposed to the other by his larger size, and the coloration of his coat. His fur was a pure white underbelly with a glossy grey patch on his head, as well as a line of grey traveling down his spine and scooping around his sides, hugging his rib cage.

As the two pups played, Oliver's pup's personality got the better of him. As feisty and rambunctious as ever, he began to roughhouse with the smaller pup. Xavier's gave a pathetically weak yelp, and Oliver sat straighter.

Whht! Oliver whistled between two fingers. Immediately, the wolf's ears pricked up, and he bounded over to Oliver, who immediately snatched him up and stood, ready to bolt when Xavier attempted to turn him into burnt meat.

Xavier Reid Hastings
Still smiling at the sight of the two cubs playing, Xavier slowly sits down on the grass. For a while he watches as Nova plays with her sibling. Eventually he decides that his pup is safe, and lays back on the grass his arms folded behind his head. Slowly he closes as his eyes as he finds himself trying to relax. It's actually rather peaceful around the lake and with Nova distracted he actually gets the chance to enjoy it.

While Xavier is busy relaxing, Nova begins to explore the area of land next to the edge of the lake. Because she is just a few weeks old, this territory is new and very exciting to the cub. She lets out small yips as she runs around. It is when she's running that she firsts feels water on her paw. Pausing she looks down at her paw that's partially submerged in the water. As she stares at it, it's almost like she's confused. This is a very new feeling to Nova, and she likes it. Slowly she moves another paw into the water. Then she moves a third, a forth until she is standing in the water. Very slowly the cub moves forward in the water, getting used to the feeling. Pretty soon she has taken off running into the lake, going deeper and deeper. At first the small cub is completely fine, but soon she reaches deeper water. It's here where it becomes very clear that Nova can not swim. She lets out a loud yelp as she tries to keep her head above water, without much luck.

Xavier sits up and looks around when he hears the frantic yelps. He searches for Nova, but he can't see her anywhere within his line of sight. Trying not to panic he slowly stands up and walks closer to the lake searching for his pup. "Nova?"he calls, trying to remain calm. It's okay she probably just can't find Xavier. Yet he still can't seem to find her. That's when Xavier looks out at the lake and feels his heart sinking. He sees the tiny cub trying to keep her head above the water. She can't swim, and unfortunately neither can he.

"SOMEONE HELP ME"he yells as he runs to the edge of the water. Biting his lip he stares out at his cub, not sure what to do. He knows that if he attempts to swim out and save her, it will most likely end up with both of them drowning. But he can't just let her drown, that would be cruel and he couldn't live with himself if that happened. That's when he sees someone run past him and watches as they swim out to his cub. As he watches, he bites his lip. He slowly releases it as he sees the person bringing Nova back in.

Opening his arms he takes Nova from them and holds her close to him. "I'm so glad you're alright"he whispers as he plants a kiss on top of her head. "Thank you for saving her"he tells the person, as continues to gaze at Nova. He slowly looks up at the person and that's when he realizes that he recognizes them. Oliver Hayes. "Y-you"he says his voice cracking as he stares at the other male. "You saved her?"he asks finding it hard to believe that Oliver would do something like that.

Son of Athena

Oliver stood with his wolf clutched firmly to his chest, awaiting Xavier's approach. However, he was pretty surprised when it didn't come. The boy simply stayed laying down in the grass. Shrugging, Oliver decided that he and his pet were safe, and turned around, beginning to walk back to his cabin. It was almost dinnertime, anyway. He was starving, and he was sure that the pup was too, after having a day of play.

Stopping abruptly, Oliver heard frantic yelps. Whirling around, he saw splashing in the lake and could only just discern a small wolf in the water through the splashing. He saw Xavier run up to the edge of the water, frantically, but made no sort of action. Nova, as Xavier called, seemed not to be able to swim. And, Oliver deduced, neither could Xavier. Oliver's heart began to pump in his chest, debating in his head the choices before him. He could let the dog drown, and let Xavier suffer, or he could safe his pup's sibling. He grit his teeth as his conscience got the better of him, and he set down his pet. Then, he took off at a run.

As he ran, the wind whipped in his ears, and his heart was accelerating. He forced his body to go into overdrive in order to get to the water before Nova ceased to tread water for it's dear life. As he reached the water's edge, he didn't make any hesitation to jump in, not even taking time to take his shirt off. He simply ran into the water. The water resisted his legs as it got higher and higher, until it was up to his waist. He had no idea how the dog had gotten so far out, and guessed that it must have drifted as it tread. Oliver began to swim with long and fast strokes, arms slicing through the water. Once he reached the pup, he grabbed it under it's stomach, and lifted it above the water, using his three free limbs to slowly bring himself back until his feet could reach the ground beneath him. The dog was twisting violently, obviously still terrified of even being this close to the water, and Oliver had to be careful not to drop her.

When his feet touched the bottom, he stood and held the wolf to his chest as he walked out of the water. He handed it to Xavier, who immediately seized it from him and clutched it to his chest. Oliver dropped his arms, and took a couple steps up the grass, before sitting down. Not the most athletic person, his heart felt like it was growing three sizes with every beat, and was pumping excesses of blood through him every second. Things around him got very bright, and he closed his eyes. He felt a small nudge, and the wet touch of a nose, and picked up his own wolf, setting him in his lap and giving him a secure embrace.

After a couple moments that flew by for Oliver, he heard a voice above him. He slowly looked up, squinting. His breath had become somewhat more controlled, but far from normal. He saw Xavier's face looking down at him. He couldn't really read his expression, but whenever Oliver pictured the boy, he always saw an angered appearance with furrowed eyebrows. It was just his default, because he rarely was around to observe if Xavier was ever making any other face.

"A thank you would be nice," Oliver growled out. He was a little bit insulted that he had just saved his dumb dog's life and the only thing he was astonished about was that Oliver could be a good person. It wasn't like he had done it for Xavier, he did it for Nova, and for his own wolf, Fenrir.

Xavier Reid "Zave" Hastings


Xavier anxiously watches as the figure darts past him and begins to swim towards Nova. He cant help but feel greatful that whoever it was there. If they hadn't been there, well it wouldn't be good. He nervously chews on his lip as he watches them rescue his pup, before swimming back to shore. When Nova is safely in his arms he gives her a tight squeeze as he holds her close to his chest. That's when he takes the time to look at her rescuer, and it's extremely shocking.

Xavier feels himself getting angry at how Oliver retorted but he forces himself to not explode. He's right, he deserves a thank you. Actually he deserves a lot more than just that, but for now a thank you is good. "Thank you so much for saving her"he tells Oliver as he looks into his eyes, trying his best to convey a look of gratitude. "If you hadn't been here, I don't know what would have happened"he says quietly. Of course he knows what would have happened, but he doesn't want to think about it.

Xavier nervously bites his lip as he looks at Oliver. Maybe it's just the circumstances, but Xavier can't help but feel a pang of guilt as he recalls all the awful thing's he's said and done to Oliver. He's an awful person. "Hey Ha-"he starts to say before cutting himself off. Is he sure about this? Is this even worth it, there's no way that Oliver's going to accept it. "Hey Oliver, I'm really uh sorry about well everything"he says as he turns his gaze to look at the ground. He can't bring himself to make eye contact with the boy.

Finally after a while of awkward silence, Xavier looks back at Oliver. "I owe you"he blurts out. "How can I repay you?"he asks his eyes wide as he waits for the boy to answer. "Anything you want, just name it and I can do it"he adds. "If you want money, I'll give you money"he says giving an example. Maybe this is his way for repaying Oliver for what he did. But honestly Xavier is just trying to make up for treating the boy like complete shit. It's a pathetic way of doing it, but it's what hes used to doing. He just hopes that Oliver will accept some sort of payment, otherwise he's probably just going to end up feeling guilty. This way he can just go about the rest of his life trying not to think about Oliver Hayes ever again.

After this he can't be mean to the boy any more, he can't. So he's decided to just try to avoid him. That way will be best, and he's sure that Oliver will feel relieved knowing that he no longer has to put up with Xavier. Once Oliver accepts his reward of sorts, Xavier will tell him and then well it will be over.

Son of Athena

Oliver stared at Xavier when the boy spoke to him. Half of the words that came out of his mouth were hard to even comprehend, they were so shocking. It was as if this weren't Xavier at all. It would be like replacing Oliver with Finnegan. A different facial expression, a different tone, demeanor, stature, everything. Oliver wasn't looking at Hastings, he was looking at someone completely different. Or, perhaps this was indeed Xavier. Perhaps the person that Oliver had known so long was Xavier's, to put it in Oliver's words, shadow-self. The kind of thing seen in comic books, or video games. A person with almost identical appearances but polar opposite personalities. Oliver experienced this now, meeting Xavier for what seemed like the first time.

Oliver faced a multitude of options, two sticking out most prominently: forgiveness and refusal. Oliver could put everything that Xavier has done to him behind him and look towards the future. Every lightning bolt, every fist to the face, every push, and every shove could just be tossed behind him. Or, he could hold it all against him, and discount everything that had just taken place. He could look Hastings in the face and tell him that nothing is different. That he still has a passionate hate for him.

Oliver set Fenrir on the ground, and stood. Fenrir circled Oliver's feet a couple of times before sitting down. The son of Athena faced Hastings, expecting to look straight into the boy's eyes. But, his eyes were pointed at the ground, making eye contact impossible. And, what's more, the face that he saw was not Hastings'. It was impossible to have that same fiery rage that he had every time he looked at the boy. He only saw a look of gratitude, and sorrow at the same time. The expression melted Oliver's raging attitude, and his stone-heart softened. He couldn't possibly push this boy around. Not this Xavier.

"Look, i- it's fine," Oliver said to Xavier's turned-away face. He felt kind of awkward and silly, unsure of how he could possibly throw away all the abuse Xavier's caused him. When Xavier looked up at Oliver, he felt his chest squeeze a little bit, and he shifted his weight uncomfortably from his left foot to his right. "Look, I don't want your money. You don't have to give me anything. I'm sure anyone would have done the same thing, I just happened to be here," he admitted. He looked down at his wolf pup, and almost dared to imagine what could have happened if he were in Xavier's place, and nobody else was there. But, he instantly shoved the thought away with a shake of his head.

"You don't owe me anything," he said, maybe the firmest thing he's said the whole time. "I'll see you around, Xavier," he said in a very rapid sentence, before turning and walking away as quickly as his legs could take him, Fenrir trotting along at his heels.
