Benny and Tyler

Benny: Sneaking out, Benny quietly made his way towards Tyler's window. He didn't want to leave camp but closure wasn't an option. He had to do something, just to move on with his life. C'mon, it'll be fine. Tyler will understand that you have to leave. Quietly, he knocked three times on the window and waited for a response.

Tyler: Tyler woke up to Finks tugging on his shirt.  "What...what is it Finks?" the cat leapt off the bed and went to the window in his room meowing.  Rubbing his eyes, he walked to the window and looked out of it to see Benny.  Opening it he looked at Benny, "What are you doing here Benny? It's late..."

Benny: "Ummm, can I come speak to you...? It's important..." He said with a sad smile. "I'm gonna climb through the window if that's okay. I'll try not to break anything, I promise." Looking around to check that nobody was there, Benny climbed through the window. If Tyler looked closely, he would probably notice that Benny was wearing travelling clothes under his camp hoodie. 

Tyler: Helping him in, Tyler took him to his bed and curled up, "Why you here Benny?"  He yawned, and kissed Benny's forhead.

Benny: Awkwardly, Benny kissed Tyler's cheek and perched on the end of the bed like a bird. "Ummm, it's a long story but I'm leaving camp with Theo for a few days. We're headed with a daughter of Charon towards the Underworld to try and convince Hades to let me talk to Alex's spirit." He paused. "I wanted to say goodbye, in case I don't get a second chance."

Tyler: It took a second to sink in, "'re leaving?"  He suddenly clinged to Benny, "I...I don't want you to go to the underworld!  It's dangerous!"  Tears started to stream from his eyes, he didn't want Benny to be risking himself if he wasn't there.

Benny: "I don't either... but.... but...." Benny sniffled, caught up in the sudden wave of emotion. He did his best to steel himself, and wrapped his arms around Tyler to comfort him. "Alex died trying to protect me, and I never got to say goodbye properly. It's scary... but I have to do it. I'd do it for you or Wil or Theo..." He paused briefly. "I need closure. I can't be a kid forever."

Tyler: "But I don't want to loose you!" Tyler cried.  Fink pushed up against Benny for re-assurance. "Isn't there another way?  What if Hades says no?"

Benny: "I'm not going anywhere I promise, but I have to try. It's the right thing to do." He said, holding him in silence for a few seconds. He looked at Ty, and opened his mouth but no words came out. It took him full minutes before he could bring himself to say it. “I… Wil… Theo… Theo thinks we should break up. I… I… think he might be right. I… It’s hard to explain. I… I don’t… I love you, but… It’s just… I think I love Wil more.”

Tyler: The son of Iris felt his heart sink. Tears finally forced their way out of his eyes and started to stream down his face, "What...did I do wrong?" His volume went up a bit.  Tyelr couldn't understand, how could Benny say that?  "I thought I was your knight in rainbow armor!"

Wil and Benny

Wil:He nervously sips tea as he waits in the Hebe cabin living room for Benny. He is dressed casually, but his hair is gelled today.

Benny: Benny heard someone enter the cabin. He'd been stumbling about in an attempt to get ready. Bravely, the lieutenant peeked out the door to see Wil. "Ummm...hai...." The younger boy blushed slightly and walked down to see him. He was dressed casually, and his hair was in disarray. "How are you? I was gonna come see you, but I got sidetracked..."

Wil:He takes another sip of tea, before setting it down to go give Benny a bear hug. "Benny! Where have you been??? It's been so long." He then holds him at arms length with a grin. "Pilot keeps asking for you.Honestly, you've got that dog really worried."

Benny: Caught off-guard by the hug, Benny awkwardly nuzzles into the taller boy's shoulder. He smiles and puts on a brave face. There's no way he can avoid telling Wil the truth, about what happened with Tyler and his impending journey to the Underworld. "Ummm, sorry. I've been really busy. Do ya wanna go for a walk so I can explain it all? We could do with a heart to heart. I missed you."

Wil:He gives Benny a curious look. "Yeah sure. Do you want me to call Pilot, or if you want I can ask him to visit you later?" He grabs his tea and heads for the door, holding it open for Benny. He doesn't know why, but he can't help but feel some dread. Benny didn't seem to be acting his self. Why does he seem so serious? The air of lightheartedness he normally felt with Benny around is absent.

Benny: "Umm sure, how is he? Pilot's come back, hasn't he?" He smiles gratefully, as Wil opens the door like a gentleman. Although he felt nervous, Benny still feels the butterflies in his chest. "We can take a long path down the woods. There'll be loads of sticks for him to catch." The son of Hebe gingerly puts his hands in his pockets and goes down a small pathway. "How are you doing?"

Wil:"I mean, he is still serving, but I called him earlier." He whistles, signaling Pilot to come. "We were playing an intense game of fetch for a bit." He smiles. "Yeah, he loves sticks." Wil follows Benny, at first behind him but then by his side. "Sowhat's up?" Pilot flies in, tackling Benny from behind.

Benny: Walking along happily, Benny's suddenly tackled to the ground by the wind spirit. He lifts his arms up in surrender and pats Pilot's head. "Whoa boy.... I missed you, who's the cutest spirit? You are..." The young boy giggled, looking up to Wil. "Umm... it's a long story. I broke up with Tyler."

Wil:He drops his mouth in surprise. "But, I thought everything was all well there.." He says, his face showing some confusion. His heart skips a beat, not understanding what this meant for them. Probably nothing. After all, you did get over him right? He walks closer to Benny and Pilot.

Pilot:He licks Benny's face supportively, barking out things that could only be assumed at how he was better off a single independent boy who don't need no other boy.

Benny: His face turned red. He rubbed Pilot's belly and did his best to smile. "Um, it was but I've had a really hard time lately. Um... I love him but I think I love someone else more... and I have to leave for a while, so I don't know what's really going on..." Benny shrugged his shoulders and got up.

Wil: His face droops a little, for some reason hoping it had been him. He probably met another nice person. "Oh, you're leaving?" Another thing to surprise him. "Uhh, where to? And for how long?" His face shows some disappointment, not really wishing for Benny to leave.

Pilot:One moment he is happily getting his belly rubbed, the next, he is staring down Benny, feeling almost slapped. Benny had almost left without telling him. He growls a little, obviously hurt.

Benny: "Um, I heard some news about Alex." Benny paused, as he walked towards the waterfall at the edge of the woods. "Theo and I... we're going to the Underworld to try and track him down. We're going with this Charon girl. She seems okay though." He sighed, obviously unhappy with the situation. "I wanted to say goodbye. You're my best friend Wil and.... I couldn't bear it if anything came between us. I just have to go for a while. Alex fought for me. I owe him."

Wil:"Wow," he widens his eyes. "Not the answer I was expecting. The underworld??" He shakes his head. "That's a really dangerous journey. Is there any way I could come with you? and if you can't take me, at least take Pilot," he pleads. "For your safety and to make me feel better."

Pilot:He yips in affirmation. Even if he hates underground places, he would do it for Benny.

Benny: "Do you remember when you asked how I'd react if you gave me flowers?..." The son of Hebe smiled sadly. Only a year had passed - but it had seemed so long. "Well, it's my turn to give them to you." Benny took a bluebell out of his pocket, and twirled it between his fingers. "Persephone gave me this. It's connected to my lifeforce. If anything happens... it'll wither. I want you to have it." 

Wil:He reaches for it, with a slightly trembling hand. "I-I'll-" his voice is slightly hoarse. "I'll water it everyday. Even if its a magic flower that doesn't need me, I want to help you live as much as possible." He brings it to his face, giving it a small sniff. "It even smells like you," he jokes.

Pilot:He looks at the flower, determination in his eyes. The message was clear. I will gaurd it with my life.

Benny: Benny gently passed Wil the flower, his hands brushing lightly against the other boy's. "I trust you, it's just there to let you know I'm safe. I... I couldn't bear it if anyone waited for me and I was gone." He blushed. "Please look after my dad and Ty. I want them both to be okay..." The son of Hebe leant in, and brushed his lips against those of his best friend. "I hope I smell good then..." He giggled playfully, briefly forgetting their sad situation. "Cause I think I like you Wil... like 'like like', ... like boyfriends... you know."
