(Open! Anyone can join!) Intriguing...

Post by Silverflame44 on 8/4/2014, 11:10 pm

Camilla treks up the last few paces to the tree at the top of the hill.  So many questions race through her mind as she stands by the pine.  Her father left her at the bottom of the hill, telling her that he couldn't join her.  Why did he do that?  He didn't explain much, except that she had to go to a "special camp".  What did he mean by that?  Camilla sighs and kneels in the grass, removing her heavy backpack from her shoulders and placing it on the ground in front of her.  She runs her fingers through the blades of grass, feeling their comforting coolness against her skin.  She rests her side against the tree and looks at the field before her.  Her mind is reeling and she's feeling exhausted already.  Camilla closes her eyes and breathes in the fresh air.  Maybe if she just stays here, she can dissolve, become a part of the tree or maybe the ground or the air.  She sighs and shifts to lean her back against the pine.  She'll just stay here and pretend everything's okay.

Ryan was taking his daily lap around the camp. It was a nice day. The weather permitted him to wear shorts and a sleeveless Camp Half-Blood tee. Walking around was a great way to ease his mind. No need to try to actually do stuff. Thalia's Tree sat directly in front of him, the Golden Fleece shining in the sunlight. Someone, a girl Ryan didn't recognize, sat against the tree. She almost looked asleep. Ryan was friendly guy, he liked getting to know people. He walked up to the girl. Hands in his pockets, he stands over her.

"Are you asleep?" He asks, "We have cabins down there." He points towards the omega shaped line up of the cabins.

Camilla is startled by the voice that snaps her out of her trance-like state. Looking up, she sees a tall boy looking down at her and pointing. Her anxiety starts to flare a little and she's speechless, as well as bright red. Standing up, she manages to stutter out a reply,
"Uh, n-no, I'm not asleep. Sorry," She looks at his sleeveless orange shirt and reads the words.
"Camp Half-Blood? What's that supposed to mean?" Realizing her words might have been rude, she covers her mouth with her hand.
After apologizing profusely, she stutters out another sentence, "A-are you a c-camper here? Could you help me out p-please? My father dropped me off with no explanation and I don't know where I am and I don't know why I'm here and..." She trails off as tears fill her eyes. She realizes she doesn't know anything about the current situation and feels lost. Quickly, she blinks them back and looks at the boy, hoping for a straight answer.

So the girl was a newbie. Ryan smiled down at her, remembering his first experience. He walked over and leaned on the tree. The shade was a welcoming thing. After her explanation, tears were in her eyes. Ryan felt sympathy for her.

"I'm guessing you haven't met Chiron yet?" Her blank stare answered that. "Okay." He rubbed his chin. some light stubble had grown. He needed to shave. "Yes. I'm a camper here. Been here six years." He was beginning to feel like an old timer. "This place is Camp Half-Blood. The only safe place for us demigods."

Camilla stares at the boy, even more confused than before.
"D-demigods?" She asks. Camilla's heard of them before in English class, but claiming that they're real, like this boy is, just sounds crazy.
"So, you're saying that this camp is for people who are half god and half human? Sorry, but you sound absolutely insane," Camilla lets her mind wonder just a bit and think, could it be true? Of course not. That's just crazy. Maybe this camp is for lunatics and that's why her father sent her. After all, she did have a small list of mental illnesses, but she never thought her father would think she was crazy. Camilla is so confused and lost she just buries her face in her hands, hoping that everything will go back to normal.

Ryan's explanation, well statement, seemed to only confuse her more. It's a big pill to swallow, finding out that your a demigod.

"It might sound insane but it is true." Ryan said. "You know of the Ancient Greek gods and goddesses right? Well they're real and our parents." He was never very good at explaining the whole the gods-are-still-alive thing. "I'm a son of Athena. Those cabins." He pointed again. "Represent the gods and goddesses. Once you parent claims you, one of those cabins will be your new home." He looked back over the Camp, a feeling of homeliness rushing over him. He was been a year rounder since he was twelve, so this place was his home.

Camilla looks at the cabins he points to. How did I not notice those before? she asks herself. Shaking her head, she tries to get her train of thought back. So, I'm a demigod, half god, half human. Wait, what? Looking up at the boy, she decides to humor him and his little fantasy and go along with it. I mean, that's what you do with a crazy person, right?
"Okay," Camilla begins slowly, "So I am half god and half human? Is everyone here like that?" She feels like playing along is a waste of her time, but why not? After all, she has no idea why she's here. Maybe this boy can help her out.

It still didn't sound this girl believed him. It's always tough to believe. It took Ryan a little while to fully believe it. Mr. D turned him into a shrub for a week. And Chiron and the satyrs helped. Sometimes it just took those Mystical creatures and getting turned into a plant to really make you realize things.

He rubbed the back of his head, "Most campers are. Chiron, our activities director, is a centaur. There are satyrs and dryads around as well. Mr. D, short for Dionysus, is our camp director. He's the god of wine." He pushed himself off the tree. "He was called back to Olympus for an unknown reason."

Camilla looks at the camp, wondering if what this boy is saying might be true or not. She takes a deep breath scratches her arm nervously.
"Okay," she says slowly, cautiously.
"Now I'm here, what should I do?" She asks.
Camilla has no idea what she's going to do or see or even what's going on. But, she might as well find someone else who might help.

Ryan wasn't used to explaining stuff to the newbies. Some people believed it right off the bat, the others took a while. And Ryan wasn't that patient of a person. Exhaling, he shrugged, "Most people go straight to Chiron. I've heard there is a video to explain things." Ryan was completely clueless about this. They started to do the orientation video the year after Ryan arrived. "We could go see if he is at the Big House. I'm guessing you haven't been claimed, right?" It would've been easy to stop by whichever cabin was hers on the way. Oh, well.

"Claimed?" Camilla questions. Honestly, this boy is creating more questions than answers. Camilla looks around the camp.
"So, where's this Chiron person?" She poses another question. All Camilla needs right now is some answers. Wherever or however she has to get them doesn't matter, as long as this confusion over what is going on is cleared up.

"Last I heard, Chiron was in the Big House. Though someone said he was going to visit the Party Ponies." Ryan scratched his beard (could he call it that yet?). "Or was that last week?" He saw this girl's expression. Wait. Did he ever introduce himself? He replayed the conversation in his head and found no recollection of introductions. He pivoted until he was facing her, "I'm Ryan by the way." Should he go modern or classic? Deciding on the latter, he extended his hand.

"I'm Camilla," She tentatively reaches out her hand to his and shakes it gently. After the formal greeting, she tenses up a little as she works up the nerve to ask her next question. "U-uh," Her stuttering starts up again and her anxiety starts to spark. "C-can you help m-me find C-Chiron?" She manages to blurt out.

Camilla. That was this girl's name. Hopefully he could remember it. He yawned and stretched his back. So she wanted to find Chiron. He could do that. "Yeah, I'll take you to him." He turned towards the cabins. He called back over his shoulder, "Follow me, we are heading to the Big House." He continued down the hill.

A rather small girl leans against the Big House, watching the pair come down the hill. Her brown hair keeps falling in her eyes, and she pushes it back again and again. If only she'd had the sense to put it up when she came down from her cabin. She sighs, running a hand through her hair.
