I sit down by the edge of the of the water and stare at my reflection. No wonder no one has spoken to me. I am horrible. I splash away my reflection as my eyes blur. I hold back the tears. No one must see me cry. I must not cry.

Having finished his hearty lunch, Magnus soon became a little bored at the barbecue. Other than Chris, he had yet to see anyone he knew, and nothing special was happening. The son of Zeus decided to take a walk to Euros Creek, check the place out, before heading back to the lake.
Chris had gone with Magnus, and it was he who first noticed the girl at the edge of the water. They were a distance away, and Chris was no empath, but right away he could tell something was not right.
"Magnus, look. What do you think's wrong?" he asked.

Magnus stopped, glanced at the girl. "Don't ask me, man. A lot of things go wrong in wartime."
"Hello there!" Chris called out, in a friendly manner.

A tear slips down my cheek. I angrily swipe it away. I said no crying. I look back into the water just as someone yells "Hello there". I jump to my feet and spin around. I loose my footing and fall.....right in the water. I panic and fling around. I realize I can't swim.

"Whoa!" Chris took several strides and jumped into the water after the girl. He approached and took hold of her from behind, so she wouldn't be able to drag him down as well. The son of Apollo had received a bit of lifeguard training, and that came in handy as he dragged the girl to the shore. She was spluttering, but breathing.
"Calm down. Breathe. You're safe," Chris said.

The boy from earlier jumped in and pulled me out. As I got my breath back and calmed down, I looked up at the boy. He had just saved my life. "You saved me. Thank you" Then I realize that he was the first one to acknowledge my existence today....and I had made a fool of myself. I feel the color rushing to my cheeks and my nose turn red. My eyes start to sting from trying to hold back tears. I quickly stand and look at the boy dead on. I am such a mistake! "I am sorry....." A few tears start to fall and I gasp. You're crying in front of him, you idiot! Stop! I turn and wipe away my tears."...really sorry." I walk towards the woods.

"Hey. Hey hold on." Chris stepped forward and put a hand on the girl's shoulder--not like he was trying to restrain her, but rather calm her down. "No need to be sorry. Everybody slips from time to time. Just be careful."
"Yeah. Don't be so hard on yourself," Magnus added.

"Thanks. I am sorry for making you have to save me." What I really want to say is If I wasn't alive, you wouldn't have had to save me. I am sorry for that. I close my eyes and sigh. He has already seen you cry. So it's no use trying to hide it, Idiot! I walk over to a tree and sit. I hold my face in my hands and cry.

Chris was taken aback by the girl's sobbing. It got him wondering what had happened to her, but he wasn't sure how to ask.
Magnus was more direct. "Hey, uh, are you new here? Did monsters give you trouble on the way to camp?"

I stop crying and glance up. "Yes and yes. It's my fault my mother is dead!" My eyes start to turn different colors. I begin to cry again as my eyes turn blue. As I cry, it starts to pour rain.

Magnus grimaced. "This rain sure suits the mood, doesn't it," he muttered sarcastically. He tried to stop it, but his own powers over the weather were quite limited, and he could only lighten the precipitation a little.
Chris sighed. "Please, you can't think that. Many half-bloods go through tough things like you, but it's never your fault. I know you did the best you could."

I see the grimace on the other boy's face. "He must not like rain. Great! Another thing about me someone doesn't like." I hadn't relized I said that out loud. I stop crying and it stops raining. I look at the boy who saved me. "It is my fault. I killed her. MY sword killed her!" I remembered the red color of my eyes. I remembered the way I cried over her body. I cry silent tears so it won't rain.


I hear voices not far from me and I stand. I creep behind a tree and eavesdrop. I hear a girl crying. She sounds so sad. After a male voice says that it wasn't her fault, I find out why she sounds so sad. She killed her mom. "How horrible-" I gasp and cover my mouth.

Magnus silently berated his own lack of tact. "Hey, I didn't mean to..."
Chris cut him off. "It is not your fault," he insisted. "Battles are havoc, especially for a newly-discovered half-blood. You did not mean your mom's death, no matter what happened. It was the monsters, hear me?"

I looked at the boy who saved me and sighed. " I hear you loud and clear. But you don't understand. I remember my eyes turning red. I remember me fighting the hydra and killing it. I also remember me turning on my mother and stabbing her right in the heart. I remember my eyes turning nack to blue and me crying over her body. It is my fault." I listen to the girl's story and silently pitty her. I try to get more comfortable. But when I move, a twig brakes. I stop and freeze. I look at the other boy and smile a little fake smile. "It's ok. I just got a little angry at myself. I shouldn't have yelled. I shouldn't have said anything at all.I am s-" I heard a twig brake and fear washed over me. I started trembling and my eyes turned purple.

"That's a very...interesting condition," Chris said, his brow furrowing. To be honest, the word he was really looking for was disturbing, but he couldn't say that.
"Don't worry too much. You can go ask Chiron about it. He's seen everything, and he can help you." Chris tried his best to sound upbeat.

Magnus turned at the sound of the twig, one hand crackling with lightning. "Hey, who's there?"

I stayed silent. I heard lightning crackle. Oh gods. Please don't kill me. I kept as quiet as I could but I still kept a shallow breath. I looked at the lightning coming from the other boys hands. " I will talk to Chiron. But I doubt it will help." My eyes were still purple because I was scared.

Chris shook his eyes. "Calm down, Magnus. Probably just an eavesdropping camper."
Hey, he's got a point. Feeling just slightly sheepish at his overreaction, the lightning in Magnus' hand died out.
"Listen, yo, if you're eavesdropping, just show yourself. We're all fellow campers--no need to hide."

I came out from around the bin and looked at the three campers. I smiled and walked over to the girl. I looked down at her and reached out. I watched as a girl came around a tree. Based on her beauty, she was a daughter of Aphrodite. She looked at all of us but came to me. She looked down at me. She reached out to me and I flinched. My eyes were bright purple now. I don't trust well.

Chris held his hand out to the girl who was scared. "Hey, I'm Chris from the Apollo cabin. What's your name?"
"Magnus, son of Zeus." The big guy offered his hand too.

I smile a little and shake the boy's hand. "I am Thalia. Nice to meet you, Chris and Magnus." I look back at the girl and smile. I stand and give her a short hug.

I listen to the introduction and find out the girl's name. Thalia. Nice name. She shakes their hands and stands. She gives me a short hug. I smile because she is so small. I look at the boys again. The boy named Chris catches my eye. He is very handsome.

"What's your name?" Magnus asked the new girl, again offering his hand.
"Yeah, what's..." Chris trailed off at the end of that sentence. Man, that girl didn't look half bad. He had seen his share of pretty girls, but this one was among the most beautiful.
Chris shook his head a little to clear his mind, and just extended his hand as well. So what if she was attractive? Wartime was not the best era to date. Besides, there was much more to a person than the outside.

I watch the boys extend their hands to the new girl. The boy named Chris seemed at loss of words. He must like the new girl. Magnus? Well he doesnt show he likes her.

I smile at the boy named Chris. I shook his hand and Magnus's hand. I held Chris's a little longer than usual. He was hot. I liked him. Great. I have a new crush and two new friends. Just great. I liked this place.

OOC: I made a topic in the infirmary about Thalia and Solania. I think that would be a great place Solania and Chris to, well, help each other out.

Magnus glanced at Thalia and nodded, seeing she was back to normal. "Well, possible emotional crisis averted." Then he noticed Chris' expression and could hardly resist rolling his eyes, like Are you kidding me?
"Okay, anything else you guys wanna do?" he interjected quickly, to prevent any further awkwardness from developing. "We could hang out at the barbecue."

Chris nodded. "Sure, that'll be cool."

OOC: Cool.

"May I go with you, Chris?" I smiled at Chris with my most flirtacious smile.

OOC: Can your characters be in 2 places at once?

Magnus considered telling the girl to lay off Chris, but thought better of it, instead rolling his eyes again. He hated flirting, but being blunt in the past hadn't won him any friends. Besides, he trusted Chris to make the right decision if it ever came to that.
"Sure." Chris shrugged, doing a remarkable job of appearing nonchalant, though he liked that smile first time he saw it.

OOC: Yes, because technically they don't have to be in two places at once. Just because two events are getting posted at the same time doesn't mean they're happening at the same time.

OOC:ok!:) So to the barbecue?

"Well then, lets all go."

"Oh. I can't I have to go...do..something." I started to back away toward the woods.
