The lake (wow im so creative // private)

Post by Morgan Landry on 9/13/2017, 7:30 pm

Sloane stood on top of a rocky outcrop. Underneath her the lake shimmered in the sunset, a rippling reflection of the glowing sky. Sloane picked up a heavy stone and threw it into the water, watching as it plummeted down and broke the surface with a satisfying splash. It was late in the afternoon, close to dinner, so all the campers were hurrying to the showers to get their sweat off before heading to the Mess Hall. With all them gone, it was nice and quiet here, she could almost forget she was at camp if she ignored the background noises.
Not that she didn't like it here. Surprisingly, despite everything the Hunters always said, staying here was very pleasant. No monsters. Classes and training every day. War games, trips to Camp Jupiter, an entire cabin just for her and her siblings, themed after their mother. Camp Half-Blood was paradise.
Yet she was angry. Her lips curled as she tossed another stone into the water, hearing it hit the surface hard. She just wanted to get back to the Hunt. She wanted to see her sisters again and go on adventures with them across the globe, hunting down anything that escaped the pits of Tartarus. Yet she was stuck as a mortal again, her beautiful health and speed gone. Half the time she felt like a slow, awkward sloth. She wished she could join again, just for one day.
Suddenly she heard a rustling in the bushes behind her and turned around, her braid whipping to the side. She squinted into the undergrowth, one hand moving to her dagger.

Fridgeir had been sitting under the shade of a tree, finally happy to be away from both his siblings and the other campers. He didn't have many friends at the camp, most just ignored him. He hadn't been there long, maybe half an hour at the most, when he heard the splashing of the lake near by. He ignored the first one but after the second, he got curious. He got up from his spot and made his way over, moving through the bushes as that was the fastest way

Upon his arrival to the spot, he saw the girl, one he didn't recognize but someone who did intimidate him. At least a little bit. It took him a moment to notice the girl had a hand on her dagger. Fridgeir quickly said, "No need to worry, not a monster. Don't gut me."

Sloane's shoulders relaxed but she kept her hand on her dagger. "You never know."
The boy had a Northern vibe to him which she could not explain. Maybe it was the voice or the hair or the posture, but it felt familiar. "Where are you from?" she asked, her mismatched eyes glancing over him.
She was wearing a pair of camouflage trousers and hunting boots, just like she used to back when she served Artemis. The only change was that she was now wearing an orange camp tee -- at first it had felt alien but in the end she'd adopted the colour. Even if the Hunters collectively hated campers, Camp Half-Blood was still a safe heaven outside the mortal world, and she appreciated that with every fiber of her being.

Fridgeir looks at the girl a bit strangely, not used to being asked that ever, much less as one of the first things someone says to him. He says, "Depends what you mean. I'm originally from Iceland but currently live in New York."
He looked over the girl, taking note of the few features comparable between her and the hunters when they visited. But seeing as how she was wearing the orange camp shirt and was here, he shrugged it off and just marked it as a coincidence. He on the other hand, was wearing the normal camp shirt with a pair of dark grey sweatpants. He said soon after, "What about you? Where are you from?"

Iceland. That was it then. Sloane relaxed some more, even smiled a little.

"Like you, depends. Originally from Sweden but right now I'm in NYC." She let go of her dagger and looked back at the lake. "What brings you here? Everyone's getting showered and ready for dinner."

He was quite surprised finding someone else from anywhere near his home. He said, "Nice. My father took me to a Sweden when I was young for a vacation. As for why I'm here, I prefer not to hang around large groups of people."

Sloane nodded. She could relate to that, being quite the loner type herself.

"When I'm here I can never quite wrap my head around the fact that we're all related," she finally said. "A family. A big, dysfunctional family." Different from home, but just as bad. Of course no one she met at camp was as bad as her mortal family, she was practically certain of that. But she knew how sick mythology could get.
The only place that had ever felt like home to her was her Hunter's tent. Her sister-in-arms had been the closest thing to an actual family. And now, here I am.

Fridgeir nodded in agreement about the family part. He said, "Yeah, its a bit strange to get used to. But it isn't all bad. At least we have people to help us. Someone to talk to if we're feeling down or are having a rough time. Just need to get to know people. How long have you been at camp?"

"This is my fifth year," she said, looking down at the lake. Part of her wanted to jump into it, the other part wanted to freeze it clump by clump. Why did it never snow here? She could use a good ski hike right about now. And she didn't want to call Andrew for a lift to Alaska. "Do you remember Iceland at all?"

"Yeah I remember it some. I enjoyed living there. But it's nice here to. You remember much from Sweden?" He took a seat on the ground, honestly a bit tired of just sitting. He looked over the lake, enjoying how it looked at this time of day.

"As a matter of fact, I do," she said through clenched teeth. "I have to go back rather often, so Im afraid I don't have the luxury to see Stockholm as some blurry childhood memory."

The girl tossed her braid back and leaned her shoulder against a tree. "Family is exhausting."

Seeing he may have brought up a sensitive topic, Fridgeir decided it was best to drop that subject. He said, "Yeah... speaking of which, who's your god parent?" He tossed a rock towards the lake, skipping it once before it sank to the bottom.

"Khione." She made a sullen face. "Sadly, I didn't inherit charmspeak from her. If I had, I wouldn't be where I am now..." The girl glanced at Fridgeir with a haughty look. "As for you, I can about guess. It stunk of Underworld the moment you arrived. Hecate? Thanatos? Melinoe?"

"You got it right on the first one. Fridgeir, son of Hecate at your service." He then proceeds to do a slight bow before giving a light chuckle. He then says, "So, where would you be if you had charmspeak? Or is that to personal to ask?"
