Aurore: Aurore watched kids in the arena. Swords, metal, shields, and everything in between were clashing. Her blue eyes scanned everyone, sort of lazily. The wind picked up her hair, making it swirl and tangle. Oh well, she thought, leaning against the tree. She crossed her arms over her chest, still watching everyone. Maybe one day she would join, but right now she wanted to be on the sidelines."
Alex: Alex wandered through the camp, looking for something to do. Bored, he turned into an owl. He flew high over camp, watching. He saw the arena, and the kids sparring. Intrigued he landed in a tree, not far from the fighting. He fluffed his feathers and gave a small hoot. Oh what a beautiful day.
Aurore: This hoot, made her look around. Nymph, or actual bird? She wondered, narrowing her eyes as she looked around trying to place the bird. A small huff of annoyance escaped her lips when she couldn't find the owl, before she returned her attention on the fighting, noting the foot work, and lunges. She figured out that one of them used a pattern. If only his partner would notice, maybe he could break it up.
Alex: He hooted again and looked down at the girl. He cocked his head and flew down, quickly changing into his, human looking form. He gave the girl a wide grin. "Hey, I thought maybe I would just, drop by, to say hello." He gave her a wink.
Aurore: She turned around, her eyes widened. Aurore almost panicked. She was one of those who was socially awkward. "Um.. Hi." She said slowly and softly, looking at him. Her head then cocked to the side, and before she even thought about how rude it was, she blurted out, "Are you the owl?"
Alex: He smirked. "Why yes, yes I am." He mimicked the hoot. "Is that a problem sugar?" He gave her another wink. "Now, what is a sweet, good looking girl like you doing looking at all the bloody fighting?" He gestured to the arena.
Aurore: Despite everything, she felt a small smile rise up. "Not at all." A dash of pink ran across her cheeks, as she looked at the kids fighting again. "I enjoy watching people." She then pointed to the boy who was doing the pattern, "See him? Watch him for a minute. His partner doesn't realize his attack and block are repeating, so he keeps going in at the wrong time." Aurore's eye returned to him, "You can learn a lot from someone by just watching." She added to her answer.
Alex: He raised an eyebrow. "Oh? And what could you learn from me?" He leaned against the tree and crossed his arms.
Aurore: Her eyebrow quirked up, as her eyes scanned him over. "Right now? I can tell that you flirt a lot. And judging you are an owl nymph, you must be wise even if you don't think so." She said, smirking.
Alex: "Well sweetheart, you have one thing right." He leans in close. "I do like talking to pretty girls" He quickly kissed her cheek and took a step back. He winked and turned into an owl, lazily circling around her.
Aurore: She stood there, blinking in silent shock. Her hand went to her cheek where he kissed, a small blush rising. Her blue eyes followed him around in the sky, as she tried to form coherent thoughts. "Y-You... I-I..." What in the name of Zeus? She thought.
Alex: He mentally smirks and dives down, skimming the top of her head. Damn, she's cute when she's blushing He hoots twice and turns back toward her, trying to get her to follow him.
Aurore: She looked back up at him, taking a step towards him. And to skip this big long following scene, she followed him wherever he led her, Of course, she did keep a sharp eye, only because she was Aurore, and Aurore was always on her guard.
Alex: He led her into the woods, silently moving through the trees, just within her sight. Eventually they reach the sanctuary, and Alex lands, turning into his Nymph form. "This is my home. I thought you might want to see." He turns to look at her, and study her reaction.
Aurore: Her eyes studied the place, taking in every detail from crack, to every stone around it. A slightly smile tugged at her lips, as she looked back to him. "It's nice." She replied, before a thought occurred to her. Why did he want to show this to me, again? But she kept it to herself. Maybe she was about to find out. "So... How's it like being... y'know.. a nymph?" She asked, mentally slapping herself for asking a stupid question.
Alex: He raised an eyebrow. Now that was a question you didn't hear everyday. He decided to roll with it. "What's it like being a demigod?" He smiled at her.
Aurore: She smirked, leaning over to boop him on his nose, ask she said, "I asked you first." Aurore, said, winking. She took a few steps back, as she crossed her arms over her chest, waiting for his response.
Alex: He blinked at her. "I can't tell you what it's like, because it's the only thing I've known, therefore I have nothing to compare it to. That's why I asked you what it's like being a demigod."
Aurore: She raised an eyebrow, before shrugging. "Being a demi-god, at least for me, means that i had to grow up being made fun of. I had a drunk dad, who didn't bother with birthday presents, he didn't bother with Christmas, he sold drugs for a living, and acted like i didn't exist unless he needed me. I didn't have a mom, so i had to learn all this stuff by myself. Then you find out you are part god, can read fluent Greek, and are gonna be hunted by monsters all your life." She huffed, before crossing her arms over her chest. "Add that you may not even live to see past your thirties. I wish i were normal." She mumbled the last part, turning away. Wait. Why did i just tell this complete stranger this? She wondered, looking down at the ground as she buried her emotions like usual.
Alex: He stepped toward Aurore, and wrapped his arms around her, holding her close. "Being a nymph means you always worry about your animal, and you always wonder if they'll ever go extinct, and if you'll die with them. Being a nymph means making friends with demigods, and then seeing them grow up without you."
Aurore: She blushed as his hands were wrapped around her. Her mind was screaming at her to get a grip, tomorrow he would probably forget about her, and move onto someone else. "At least you have something to protect..." She muttered, turning around to face him. Her blue eyes looked into his, before she looked away. She cleared her throat. "So... Your home is nice." She said, obviously trying change the subject.
Alex: He smiled softly. "Thanks. Where do you live? I don't often go into camp. And when I do, it's usually at night, when most people are sleeping." He searched her face, for anything.
Aurore: "Well... Now I live in my cabin.... But I'm from California..." She said, flashing back to days where her dad would hardly come out, and she would skip two meals a day, just so they had enough food. Her eyes closed, as she shook her head, clearing it. She deserved to be happy. And that didn't dome from thinking of him.
Alex: He hugs her again and holds her close. "Hey don't get all sad on me. I won't allow it." He lifts her head up with one finger, and gives her a small kiss on her lips.
Aurore: Her blush only grew with each and every action he did. She met his eyes, before she looked down, trying to remind herself he was a flirt. However, she didn't pull away, allowing herself that small little piece of him.
Alex: He stepped back and held her at arms length. I know a good soul when I see one. And I don't even know your name."
Aurore: "I'm Aurore. And you are, Mr. Nymph?" She asked, in a soft, yet teasing tone. Her blue eyes sparkled, as she looked at him, her blush remaining. A soft smile tugged at her lips.
Alex: "My name is Alex, and it's nice to meet you gorgeous." He smiles. "So, what do you want to do now?"
Aurore: That was a very good question. "You're the one who dragged me here, I thought you had a plan." She smirked, narrowing her eyes at him, in teasing accousation.
Alex: "Yea, well, I guess I wasn't planning a head." He gave her a charming smile. "So, I'm letting you choose what you want to do."
Aurore: She smiled, before shaking her head. "Then you are out of luck. I have no clue." She replied, gently booping his nose as she told him so.
Alex: He grins and boops her nose back. "Well, where is your favorite place in camp?"
Aurore: She smiled, before thinking for a moment. "Well... There's this place in the forest I came upon the other day..."
Alex: He raises an eyebrow. "And where might this place be? I would love to see it."
Aurore: "I guess you'll have to follow me." She laughed, taking his hand and pulling him with her as she ran. When she stopped it was in a meadow. Aurore sat down in the shade, narrowing her eyes at the sun.
Alex: He smiled and followed her, sitting down next to her. "This is pretty." He commented. "Although I can do without the sun." He winks. "I could show you a few things at night."
Aurore: "So can I." She replied, in regards to the sun comment. A small pink blush rose to her cheeks at his last comment, before she started to pick a few flowers, weaving them together to make a crown. Looking back up to Alex, Aurore placed it on his head with a small smile.
Alex: He smiles and pulls her in for a slow kiss, enjoying her presence. "Thank you."
Aurore: She kissed him back, blushing harder than ever before. A small smile pulled at her lips, as she replied, "You're welcome."
Alex: He pulls her onto his lap, facing him. He holds her close and whispers in her ear, "Would you mind if I showed you a few things that nymphs are always good at?"
Aurore: She blushed as she was pulled onto his lap, before she nodded, looking at him with curiosity. Her mind raced, as did her heart, and she could hardly think straight.
Alex: He pulls her in for a slow kiss, running his hands up her sides, her thighs, her back, any place deemed appropriate, for now.
Aurore: She kissed him back, wrapping her arms around his neck as he left goosebumps where ever he touched. Her cheeks a rosy red.
Alex: He smirks and trails kisses down her jaw to her neck, laying butterfly kisses all over. He softly traces patterns up her thighs, waiting for her to tell him to stop.
Aurore: Her eyes stayed closed as she rested her head in the crook of his neck, practically melting into his arms.
Alex: He smirks into her neck and gently nipping at it. He runs his hands up to her hip, and the waist band of her jeans. "You can tell me to stop at anytime." He whispers.
Aurore: She nodded, nipping at his neck, as she planted a few kisses. She then nibbled on his ear, as she murmured, "I know..."
