| Dark circles had formed around the demigod's golden brown eyes as a result of the past few days. He had only left the infirmary to sleep and eat meals once each day. It was tiring, but Cal knew he was needed there, to help those that had been affected by the recent... display on Half Blood Hill. He had survived the camp's apocalypse (and lived not to tell his mother) and saved a handful of lives. Barely. The morning of the bloodbath Cal had been shocked, but also filled with determination. It would be his responsibility to save these dying teenagers.

Cal took his position in the infirmary very seriously, but everyone had their limit. He was reaching his for today. The injured were healing, and there was only so much he could do for them. That concept disturbed him, burrowing its way into his head as he walked out of the infirmary, into the sunny afternoon light. He ran a hand through the thick coils of his dark hair as he exhaled. What was he supposed to do now?

Surrounded by his thoughts, the demigod didn't realize he was walking straight into someone. "Crap, uh - sorry," Cal burst, eyes wide as he looked up at the person he ran into.

Livia was deeply suspicious of the infirmary. It was where people went to get treatment for common colds, but it was also a place where casualties that had been prolonged from the battlefield came to die, and even though Livia was  beyond curious about the nature of the new campers, and would have liked nothing more to investigate, she would curb her enthusiasm if it meant so much as stepping a foot into the infirmary. So Livia kept her distance.

But in this case, as a sleepy teenager knocked into her, their shoulders clashing and Livia instinctively grabbing her shoulder in one hand and reaching for the knife she kept on her belt in another, she saw the opportunity to figure out what was going on, for once and for all. Shrugging her shoulders as if it were no big deal, Livia dropped both hands, realizing that she did not want to stab the boy, or even appear as if she might. ”It’s fine.... Do you know what’s happening in there?” She asked, gesturing to the other building. It was only then that she looked him in the eyes and saw how bloodshot they were. Poor kid. Poor kid was right, but then what was Livia? Just another dead face among a crowd. She was a kid too, or had been once.

| The infirmary left most with a dull headache, either from emotional stress or the constant scent of cleaning chemicals. Cal was not immune to such headaches. Normally stepping out into the fresh air cleared his head, ridding it of such stress, but today the air brought him no relief. If anything it reminded him of what he had left to do. He often weighed himself down with all of his responsibilities. Guilt was common within camp, and Cal often brought it on his own shoulders.

The girl whom he had run into was a familiar face around camp, although Cal couldn't place her name. He knew of her, though. Camp was always bubbling with rumors, and he had heard several about the daughter of Athena in front of him. Had her boyfriend died?Was she losing it? Had she already lost it? The teenager noted her stance after he crashed into her - the girl was defensive. "Uh," he began, casting a glance over his shoulder. How much did she want to know? Wait - he couldn't tell her. Confidentiality. "Yes but no. It's complicated." Cal sighed. That wasn't really an answer.

"If you mean the people from the hill, they are getting better. Slowly."

Livia whirled the thoughts in her head. She wanted to know what was going on, almost as much as her fears stunted her curiosity. And yet, the defining trait that had always guided Liv was curiosity over fear. Was it still that way now? She didn't know, the years of trepidation had left Livia changed. But without thinking, her mouth found itself moving. "What happened?" She wondered aloud, taking another look at the boy in front of her.

He looked tired, she realized as her fingers wound their way around the knuckles of her other hand. The boy was around her age, and carried that same tired expression that Liv saw so frequently. Maybe she had heard something about him? It wasn't likely, Livia cared less and less about rumors as time passed and this would be no exception. He looked like she might to an outsider; tired, worn out. And with an uncomfortable shift, Livia realized that it was those things that pushed people away. It was in that moment that she began to look at the boy with more intensity. Words formed on her lips, but instead of pushing them away, Liv greeted them with a smile. "I'm Livia. What's your name?" She asked, her hand going forward as an automatic gesture of friendship. Maybe that was the first step.

| The event on the hill had been a complete blur for the son of Apollo. Who was to say what had happened and what had not? He could remember the day vividly. It was a dry, sunny afternoon. Too perfect, as fate would have it. Frantic screams, sticky crimson staining tee shirts, sporadic breaths - it was all too much, and yet everyone had survived that day on the hill (but in what state?)

"You weren't there?" he replied, his thick eyebrows nearing one another. Cal had asked by she wasn't there, but really he meant another question: How could you not know what happened? As a healer, everything that resulted from that day seemed too real and obvious. Camp had been buzzing. What had stopped her from hearing it all?

He exhaled, bringing his doctor persona to the forefront. "There were about a dozen of them, all mangled and surrounded by their own blood." Cal paused, wondering if the blood was still there. The demigod prayed not. "No one died, but each person had their fair share of injuries. Most of them are resting now." Straightening up, Cal's eyes met the Athenian's, feeling increasingly uncomfortable about the way she was staring into him.

Her smile - Livia's smile - caught him off guard. His lips formed a goofy smirk as he returned her handshake, his large palm awkwardly colliding with her's. "Cal, cabin seven," he responded, hearty smile still on his face.
