Xanxus wakes up in his section of the forge because of a very annoying beeping sound coming from somewhere. He searches everywhere becoming more agitated by he fact that he can't find where the sound is coming from. Until it hits him and he feels his heart race, he scrambles over to the cabinet where a message is scrolling across the TrackerX' screen. "MONSTER LOCATED! MONSTER LOCATED!" and he cheers his cheer making MiniRow wake up "Xanxus?" it questions. "Row it works! It really worked! It found the Lamia me and Steven killed!" He presses a button and row dispenses a multiflavor lollipop. Which Xanxus puts in his mouth still elated when he grabs Row's stumps and dances with the bot. He rushes to the Camp director quickly explaining the situation and pleading his case to go and find the Lamia now named Piera. The director sits there thinking over the young man's request knowing that with this invention monsters would be on the defensive. Despite this the quest is dangerous and would be extremely taxing on those involved. With some persuading he eventually agrees to late them go asking the young man to be careful. Xanxus looks at him and smiles "I will Alex I promise".

Xanxus and Steven met on a day that looked like any other, although Xanxus was already well into his project, he and Steven met by chance. The journey into the forest actually looking for trouble and they find it when they encounter a wounded Lamia in the forest. The snake woman put up a good fight but ultimately in the end was defeated by Xanxus and Steven and, that was when Xanxus collected the dust and thus begin in earnest his experiment.

This may lead to the entrapment of high level monsters who have been killed and need to be tracked down again for Revenge, Information (If the monster can speak), Getting a lost item, Etc. They are only tracking a Lamia because they are trying to confirm it is the same Lamia.

The questers will receive blessings from A tomb they raid

Xanxus Besta: a rubix cube that has the ability to become an item Xanxus may need but cannot be bigger than two or three times bigger than Xanxus. This can also be used for other non-combative objects, but within reason, something might be shaped like an iPod, but if it doesn't have a source of energy he can not use it as an electronic object.

Steven Winterson: A miniature version of the Leo belt worn at the hip that is ,despite it's size, a medium sized storage bin on the inside able to fit small items such as potions, arrow heads, etc.

Oh Min'gyu: This is a typical egyptian ceremonial blade, decorated with mystic runes. By looking into it, Ming'yu can sometimes see people's dreams reflected onto the blade, similar to the legendary Katopris which saw possible reflections of the future.

Sylvio Paltara: A twining ring with studs on both ends that becomes a double bladed Mirkwood pole arm upon circling the ring with a finger

Alena Beckenbauer: The pharaohs dagger. The dagger has hieroglyphics that glows when monsters are around. The more hieroglyphics glowing is the more dangerous a monster is.

Blake Yeves: A chakram disc charmed to always return to the thrower and can split into crescent moon shaped halves that can be thrown like a boomerang.

Quest RolePlay

At Camp

Xanxus: Right after he gets approval for the quest he rushes over to his cabin grabbing the tracker and the supplies he will need for his journey. As he is packing he types the coordinates into MiniRow who places the signal in Egypt coming from the Sahara desert region of it. When he sees this he puts his sun glasses on and grins "Off to Africa!" checking his outfit he makes his way to the Eros cabin hoping to get Steven to come along for his quest. Though knowing he will need more than just him and Steven to defeat the Lamia this time around.

Steven: Steven was lying on his bed when he heard a familiar voice scream outside the cabin. He got up, closing his book and opened the window to look what was hapenning. "Ten? What's up man? What are you so excited about?" he asked in a friendly tone. He remembere his friend from defeating that dreadful Lamia in the forest a few days ago. Steven was dressed only some shorts because of the heat outside so when he opened the window the heat entered the room. He smiled at Xanxus and waited for his response.

Blake: The son of Notes was walking back from the camp fire, drenching wet when he saw Steven from his bedroom window talking to another boy. "What's up" Blake said when he reached Steven's window

Xanxus: He takes note of the boy and says "Please just one moment" then he turns to Steven. "TrackerX worked my man it worked! I got approved to go on a quest to find the Lamia we fought to make sure the Machine works! I have a question to ask you Steven Winterson! Will you come to Egypt with me?" He says this looking up at his first true friend at camp hopefully knowing he is asking a lot bit asking all the same.

Steven: Steven didn't even thought about it that much - ofcourse he would help his friend. He looked at him from the opened window "Give me ten minutes to fix up a backpack okay?" then he winked at Ten and hid in is room leaving the boys behind. Having in mind it was a quest - he knew that he had to make his bag as small as possible. Luggage was always a problem for him but he only prpared the most basic things. A spare change of clothes, some nectar and ambrosia, Sunglasses, sharpner for his scythe, 2 big bottles of water, some food, his bow and quiver and some arrowheads in his pockets. He rarely used that bow but he figured he would need it now. While all this was happnening, various noises of him preparing his luggage could be heard from the other 2 boys.

Blake: "So you're going to Egypt" Blake said to the boy as he kicked the ground. "Better bring somebody like me with you that dosnt mind a bit of heat" he said

Sylvio: He had been roaming around camp in the heat. He wore a tanktop and some loose black pants and was listening to the wind when he picked up a conversation about Egypt. A chance to visit a new land? And monsters who needed reaping? He approached the voices cautiously and looked at three boys all standing around an Eros boy's window. He approaches cautiously and looks at the boy who had been talking about a tracker. "My apologies... I didn't mean to hear b-but you said you were g-going to Egypt? M-may I come as well?" He looks just over the boys shoulder still not fully comfortable with others of the same sex.

Xanxus: He takes his shades off and looks the two new recruits over and then he gives them his best smile. "Come one come all we are going to Egypt!". Then he pauses "You two go pack your bags we are moving out soon meet me at the dining pavilion so I can give you guys a briefing." He spoke loudly so that Steven could here than grabs a couple of mystery lollipops from MiniRow passing them out two in front of him and throwing one into Steven's window.

Xanxus is sitting in the pavilion waiting for his Squad to show up and, planning their best route to take in order to get to Africa and back safely. "This is going to be easy peasy" he thinks holding his hand out for a cherry lollipop from MiniRow scanning a map of the Sahara.

Alena: The Cybele child grinned at the people talking about Egypt, coming to a halt on her bicycle at the invitation. "I'll come, if that invitation was open," she offered with a shrug in an attempt to mask excitement. "I'm Alena Beckenbauer," She had heard their words and came back with the necesary essentials to travel with.

Sylvio: He approaches the pavilion with caution. He has a small pack in his hands which contain essentials such as water and other minor provisions and a change of clothes. On his body is a pair of tight black jeans and a black tee shirt pulled tight against his body. The Tee was plain but the pants had tears in the knees. His black tennis shoes make no noise as her enters the pavilion and he looks at the boy who had been the one to boast about the trip. He walks up to him holding out his hand. "H-hello. I didn't introduce myself earlier. M-my name is Sylvio. I'm a child of Thanatos."

Min'gyu: Min'gyu was doing some checkups around the cabin, making sure everything was orderly and decided to go for a stroll. Mind wandering, he began to space out until his hearing picked up, "Egypt". Curious, he went to go investigate, following the voices that were getting closer once he reached the pavilion. The son of Morpheus had heard about Egypt and the pyramids and always wanted to go out of the country to see lots of amazing sights. Maybe this was a big opportunity? Not thinking twice, the silver haired boy stepped up to the pavilion, an unusual wave of boldness striking in him. "What's this about Egypt?" Min'gyu questioned with excitement. Now he just felt like he was intruding - heh - so, his look of excitement was replaced with surprise and a bit of panic. "Uh, s-sorry. I didn't mean to make an outburst like that." He said quickly.

Blake: Blake rushed back to his cabin, grabbed his only backpack and filled with three drink bottles, a change of clothes, a massive hat and some sun cream. He put his katana hilt in his pocket and ran over to the pavilion only second there. "I'm Blake and my dad is Notus" he said shaking Sylvio's hand.

Steven: Steven was kneeling on the floor looking for his potions. He wanted to bring some just in case something happened. He was just grabbing the last one whe heard Xanxus talking about gathering at the pavilion. He got up and was just about to say "Roger that" whe he was hit in the head by something small. "Ouch!!" he exclaimed and then picked up the small object. It turned out to be a lolipop. A pink one - one of his favorite colors. He quickly pealed the plastic off it and put it in his mouth - it tasted amazing. Then Steven transformed his bow into a small flesh-earing and put it on his ear. Suddenly an idea lit up the bulb. Some time ago he asked a friend of his in the Hecate cabin to rune some of his arroweheads. Maybe they could be useful he thought to himslef and grabbed a bunch in his pocket. Steven quickly put the bag on his shoulders and hurried to the pavilion. There were some new faces there so he decided to introduce himself. "Hi there! Sorry i'm late - i couldn't find my potions. I'm Steven! Son of Eros and an excelent archer. Then he shook his hand wit all the unfamilar people he saw. One particular boy dressed in black gave him a really bad, cold vibe that sent shivers up his spine. Steve decided to ignore it so he just fist-bumped Blake "Yo what's up bro? You comming too?" Then he put the most perfect smile on his face and showed his white teeth to everyone.

Xanxus: He puts down the map and takes his sunglasses off looking at all the people collected around him and he smiled just like Steven was. After taking a dramatic pause with his smile he says simply "Good you are all here".

Xanxus briefs his team on what is going down, why it is going own and how it will go down. He shows them the TrackerX and the target in Egypt which is why they are going. He also explains that they are hunting a Lamia and everyone should be prepared for a couple of fights along the way. After he explains all of this they walk down to the dirt road at the end of camp, catch a taxi to the airport, and have a plane change in Brazil.


Steven: Steven stretched his legs and back when the plane arrived in Brasil. "Well that was unexpecdetly pleasent" he commented. "I expected us to be attacked atleast 5 times during this but i guess not. Not that i'm complaining" he made a face which was clearly stating that he did want to battle. "Agh so what do we do now while we wait" Steven asked staring at the group with his icey blue eyes.

Sylvio: He stands a good distance from Steven stretching his shoulders and legs. The plane ride had not been unpleasant but slightly cramped with so many people. He checked his gear quietly watching the rest of the group. "You're right. It is strange with so many of us in one place that we have yet to be attacked. Best watch your back son of Eros lest something scratch your pretty face." He had left his shyness at the airport choosing to be a bit more firm. This was a new place and he couldn't afford to be taken advantage of.

Xanxus: Noting the tension about the monsters and the change in Sylvio he speaks up. "Guys why don't we get off and walk around before the plane switch so that we can walk around?" He puts MiniRow on his back and carries his duffel bag not taking no for an answer as he makes his way off.

Alena: Missing her bike as a mode of transport, there was a degree of hesitance in Cybele's daughter's posture as she played wingwoman, as such, behind Xanxus. At least, imagining it that way was better for the imaginative brunette. The apparent lack of choice or any team consultation at all other than the disregarded question perplexed her - and for a second this flickered across her features in a small 'o' before closing her mouth. The thought of monsters tensed Alena as much as the rest, but she satiated this via German mumbled self-conversation and playing 'this is the church and this is the steeple' anxiously with her free fingers.

Harpie 1: The harpie had been watching the group of people through out the flight, a slight scent wafting off a certain group of teenagers. She knew the scent all too well, and she knew that her and her 'sisters' would be having a nice little fight with these abominations. She had a lot of hate for the creatures called Demigods, because, after all, they had been killing her 'sisters' for sport causing them to rot in Tarturaus since the beginning of time. This was their chance to ambush these creatures and cause them the pain they'd suffered since the beginning of their puny race. She went to the back room just as the plane finished its landing, as to notify the others.

Min'gyu: Oh boy, where would the son of Morpheus fit into conversations like these? Min'gyu toys with his ring, muttering a few things in French, almost as if he was having a conversation with himself, which he most likely was. He was already missing his friends - and by friends, he meant the only two people he actually really knew. But thinking back at camp, he saw Xanxus get up and decided to get up himself, "uh, h-hey," Min'gyu spoke up, "what exactly did you mean by "we were all here"? Were you expecting us or something?" He asked with hesitance.

Xanxus: He slides into the seat nearest to him, thankful that the plane was emptying so that he could turn around and answer the other shy one. "Your name was Oh Min'Gyu right. Can I call you Oh?" He starts off with that then continues "When I said that back at camp is more of hunch than anything really. I knew how many people I needed and I knew I needed talent but, that does not mean I knew you guys were coming." He shrugs chewing on his lollipop stick "In all truth I analyzed each of you when you walked up to me at the pavilion and felt that you were the ones I needed for this excursion." He looks directly at Oh Min'gyu and lowers his shades so his Hazel eyes were brightened by the lights above and he smiles warmly "Was I wrong?"

Blake: "If one of us dies you are wrong" Blake said as pulled his sword hilt from his backpack back in his pockets because he was paranoid. "If anyone wants me I'll be looking for a toilet then something to eat" he said looking through his bag for mortal money. "Anybody got normal money" Blake asked when he couldnt find any money

Sylvio: He calmly watched the others each coping with the sudden changes in their own way. He knew things would be awkward at first sine he knew none of them in particular. As the one named Blake couldn't find any currency that would fit this world Sylvio sighed and pulled a small billfold out of his back pocket. "Heads up!" He tossed it at Blake with a deft hand. His mother supplied him with funds as his job as a reaper required him to go into the mortal world often. Inside the billfold was a little over three hundred dollars that he had saved from previous excursions. "Try not to spend it all in one place kay?" And with that he turned and picked up his pack heading into the airports main building.

Steven: "My pretty face can deffend itself, thank you very much Death-boy" Steven shot towards Sylvio. What was up witht he change of attitude. "Anyways i think it's really weird that so many of us were gathered in one place and no one even noticed us". Steven took out a few arrows and put the runed arrowheads on them. Then he quickle put them in the quiver which was safely hidden in the backpack. "Be on your guard people. I have a bad feeling". Saying that he started playing with his bracelet instictivly. "But while we wait for the plane change - anyone up for a walk with me?" Steven put a sexy, charming smile on and waited for some response.

Alena: Having a considerably large preference towards girls romantically, Alena didn't seem particularly affected, but shrugged anyway. An unsettled feeling of danger was beginning to creep onto her conscience too, the feeling of having been watched having been dissipated but leaving the girl on edge. So, she took a few steps to stand beside Steven - she could use the distraction, if nothing else, she supposed, as she flashed him an equally charming grin. He'd asked for the competition anyway, using a smile like that. "Sure," she replied after that brief thought, securing the sickle she had hesitantly brought despite preferring her powers to physical weaponry.

Steven: "Well 3 is the best number so anyone want to join me and Alena?" Steven asked putting a charming smile on. Having to get to know 2 people from the team seemed like a good idea to him. He would have almost all of them figured out in no time.

Sylvio: Having just returned from the main building with chocolate he looks at the son of Eros. "Join you in what pretty boy? Are you off to see the wizard of Oz? If its not the broadway production you can count me out." He smirks half enjoying toying with the son of Eros. Deep down inside his mind is screaming because he is talking to such an attractive young man but Sylvio's determination is overpowering this part of his body and he stands there munching on the chocolate in small bites.

Steven: "Naah we're off to see "Screw you". Have you seen it yet? I bet you have." Steven replied to the cocky Thanantos boy. What was up with him anyways? Was it the natural hate between Thanatos and Eros or was this boy really annoying. "Come on Alena. I guess it'll only be the two of us." Steven said to the young girl as they walked away. 

Sylvio: He watched the two begin to retreat and grimaced. There were too many of them in one place and knowing the way monsters worked they were bound to be spotted soon. "Ugh... Pretty boy is gonna get himself killed." And with that he drops his pack and follows the two others. 'And the gods know if I dont return with all of them someones gonna blame the quiet shy kid who belongs to a son of the underworld gods.'

Min'gyu: Min'gyu blinked, his mouth slightly a gap before snapping out of his daze and replying, "n-no! You were not wrong. And, yes, you may call me Oh, if you feel it fits comfortably. Usually, I'd tell people my nickname - it's Intruder - but, I don't mind being called "Oh"." Min'gyu smiled slightly. "You're Xanxus, right? I'm just making sure because I have no idea who everyone is." The son of Morpheus admitted nervously, rubbing the back of his neck. "I'll work my very hardest to help you on your mission." Min'gyu bowed slightly in respect.

Alena: She didn't mean to offend anyone with the chuckle that escaped her upon Steven's remark, seeming completely casual at last. Honestly, she wasn't completely comfortable with Sylvio's near-constant snarking either, and it was funny to see even the slightest bit of resistance on anyone else's part. "Fine with me," she hummed, starting to walk along with him while popping crisps in her mouth. Alena too wished to get to know the rest of the team, but definitely for separate reasons. "So why'd you decide to come to Egypt?" she asked when she had finished eating a crisp.

Blake: Blake took Sylvio's money and rushed to the toilet. After he had done his business, he slowly jogged to catch up with Steven and Alena. "Any of you seen a McDonalds yet" he asked when he caught up with Steven and Alena.

Steven: "Xan is a friend of mine. In fact we killed this Lamia together!" Steven explained to Alena "He cam e to me asking me if i wanted to help him so ofcourse i said yes". He smiled but then his smile darkened. He could hear familiar footsteps behind them "You can come out Death-boy. I'm not stupid, blind or deaf." Steven said as he noticed Sylvio following behind. "Fine come along just don't mess up everything by killing the first person we see" he rolled his eyes when he saw Blake running towards them. "Yow what's up bro? Wanna come along?"

Xanxus: He smiles warmly thinking the intruder thing is a joke but says "It's okay no need to bow". He moves over to Oh and extends a hand "Let's shake on being partners, we are equals so high fives and things like that are fine." He continues smiling and thinks we should catch up with the others. The monster thing was warranted.

Alena: "Oh, that's quite cool," she says, upon hearing the story, before glancing behind them to see what Steven had seen. The amount of sarcasm between these two was enough to make Alena laugh, and sometimes it was difficult to hold that in - but upon spotting Sylvio, she chuckled a little, because of course they should have expected that. "If you were going to come with us just come, don't try to stalk us." She let out a little more laughter, because it felt like her body was filling up with it. "Could've stalked us all the way to Africa, you know." If you weren't so bad at it. Waving cheerfully to Blake, Alena shook her head at the question. "Nein, I haven't. Unfortunately...I wouldn't really mind a McDonalds' either."

Min'gyu: Once again, Min'gyu blinks. "Oh, alright." He says, a ghost of a smile on his lips. So no formalities. Okay, got it. "Sorry, it's just a way of showing my respect. But, high fives and handshakes are pretty cool too." He chuckles slightly, rubbing his arm sheepishly. "Just, no surprise hugs or anything like that. I'd rather prefer it if people warn me ahead of time. You get what I'm trying to say?"

Steven: "Like if you're trying to follow us in secret atleast put some effort in it. Now come here before i make you fall in love with a hungry blood-thirsty shark." Steven rolled his eyes and gestured towards the boy. Then he returned his attention to Blake and Alena. "Even if we find a MC i'm only gonna have a salad or some chicken nuggets - trying to stay in shape" he msiled silyly and laughed while jokefuly flexing his muscles.

Xanxus: He nods with a smile and says "Okay no problem Oh. We should probably catch up with the others though." He picks his duffel bag back up and heads for the door before turning around tilting his shades down to flash his amber eyes. "You coming Oh? I'll buy".

Blake: "You do know chicken nuggets are like on of the worst things you could get there" Blake said as he looked around. "So strange how we haven't been swarmed by monsters yet".

Sylvio: "Please do not accuse me of stalking I was not trying to be secretive at all. I just have a vested interest in you all not getting killed before the quest is complete. And for your information Mr Son of Eros you look perfectly fine." With a slight blush he looks away from them back the way they had come.

Steven: "I know but i don't want eat anyhting too fatening" Steven explained to Blake. Then he turned his attention to Sylvio and saw the small blush. Oh! This is going to be fun! he thought to himself. Steven walked up to sylvio and put his arm around his neck in a "brotherly" hug. "So sylvio, how are the ladies going?" he asked and put a sexy grin on, increassing his love aura.

Blake: "Dude, you're going to get knocked out by Sylvio" Blake yelled out to Steven laughing. "Yay a shop that sells meat pies" Blake said when he saw the shop out of the corner of his eye

Alena: She doubled over giggling at Steven's antics, which only increased as the shenanigans continued on, to the point she was wiping tears of laughter.

Sylvio: His blush only worsened as the son of Eros put his arm around him and then he started to feel funny because of Steven's love aura. "L-ladies? I have no idea what you mean..." He squirmed lightly under the boys pressure losing all of the courage he had built up on the plane ride.

Brenda(aka Harpie 1 XD): The young harpie had been watching the demigods, as some had left but a couple had stayed and they where going to be easy targets for her sisters especially the scrawny Asian boy. She did a flick of her wrist as her and her sisters started walking one by one towards the two. "Hello Dearys" As she spoke her body started to change it to that of a bird woman.

Linda: "what do we have here? Are these two lone demigods? Weak little things they are right sisters?" As she spoke she started making her way towards Xanxus, along with her elder sister Brenda.

Mila: "what do you say we do with these cute little creatures? Do we kill them? Or play with them a little?" She spoke heading towards Min'gyu along with the 4th harpie.

Stella: "I think we should just kill them slowly!" The harpies were splitting off by 2 at this point Stella & Mila were focused on Min'guy while the other two where focused on Xanxus. Upon Stella reaching about a foot behind Min'gyu she giggled her hands elongating into feathered hands.

Xanxus: He places both hands on the isle seats next to him and begins heating his hands melting the upholstery. He looks at all four harpies and gets there attention "Hey! Chikenheads! Quick lesson seats are made of upholstery and after that a very comfy foam it goes by the name of polyurethane. When burned it becomes extremely hot, extremely sticky but did I mention it is extremely....." He burned through the seat enough to grab a handful of both seats and then increases the heat coming off his hands, turning both handfuls of the stuff into literal fireballs. "Flammable. Let's play catch." He throws one at the one coming behind Min'gyu to distract it but throws his ball as hard as possible at the two coming down the isle thanking the gods they are walking almost shoulder to at him. He wipes his hand on the seats melting the arm rest but his hands clean as he takes MiniRow off and speaks to him. "Row go find Steven and the others now!" he points out of the gate and Minirow's blinking red light turns on as he goes to find Steven. He turns back to the harpies ready for a fight.

Min'gyu: He squeaks slightly, pulling out his xiphos and turning out sharply, hands shaking. Oh god, these are harpies. Why harpies?! Haven't these creatures done enough to him? "How did you things get out?" Min'gyu questions, sneering, "did someone leave your cages open?" Twirling his xiphos, he parries at the harpy closest to him, gritting his teeth. There was no way in hell Min'gyu is going to let these hideous creatures take the upper hand. Yet, seeing these monsters made him afraid. They were ugly things, no doubt, but that's exactly why he was scared.

Steven: Steven was about to think of a smart response to Sylvio when he saw a familiar figure behind them. Minirow was moving towards them. "Row? What's up? Why are you here?" Steven pause. "Oh god did something happen?". Row's red light somehow made Steven his acusation was right. "Guys come on! We're going back - something has happened with Oh and Xanxus. I think monsters have found them!" With that he quickly transformed his miniature bracelet into the huge scythe it actually was. He ran as fast as he could. He didn't even look back - he could hear the footsteps of the others behind him. Steven couldn't believe they could be so stupid to leave Ten and Min'Gyu alone. When they arrived at the plane , Steven saw 4 harpies terrorising his 2 friends - 2 for Xan and 2 for Min'Gyu. He couldn't think - he relied on his instincts. Steven rant towards the closes harpie which was the one behind Oh. "Yo feather-brain!!" he taunted the harpy "Eat that metal!". With that he swung his scythe hard against the harpy. His original plan was to help Min'Gyu with his battle but then it hit him - The people from the plane were still here. He ran towards the entrance, leaving Oh fight the harpie alone, stright to the guards. "GO IN THE PLANE NOW! AND CLOSE THE DOOR!". Steven stood infront of the gate in case it needed protection. But staying there useless wasn't his thing so he pulled an arrow out and transformed his earring into a bow. Steven aimed and fired his arrow to the harpy closest to Xanxus. But he missed by an inch. "I MISSED!!?!??!?!" he was shocked. That had never happen to him. But he couldn't allow himself to be too taken from that or he might get hurt. Or even worse - get somebody else hurt! So he just stood there guarding the entrance to the plane.

Sylvio: As the son of Eros had his little conversation with the robot Sylvio went into action. Following behind Steven he too transformed his necklace into a Scythe and ran to the plane. There were still quite a few humans who could see what was happening so Sylvio tried his hardest to sneak onto the plane. Once on board he saw that four harpies stood in the plane all hell bent and determined to get at the son of Hephaestus and the quiet little Asian boy. Sylvio chose to help the son of Hephaestus as the boy with the Xiphos was clearly in the better positioning. He couldn't perform any of his usual attack patterns so he settled for simply swinging with all his might to pierce the head of one of the other harpies that was focused on him.

Alena: Not having wanted to be left alone Alena had followed Sylvio and Steven, despite somewhat doubting that there really were monsters - yet, anyway. But Linda, Mila, Brenda and Stella were clear to be seen, so the daughter of Cybele drew the sickle that she had been given those years ago. While the arguably agricultural tool seemed useless it was well-paired to Alena and she'd learnt, steadily, to use it well. She assisted with one of the harpies closer to Min-Gyu, lashing out at one of its wings from behind with her weapon, on her toes while preparing herself to jump back out of reach.

Blake: "May as well not be left" Blake said as he pulled his sword and chased after everyone else. When he got into the plane, Blake went to the harpy furthest to Oh, coated his sword in hot air and started to stab at the harpy's left wing.

Steven: Steven ensured that the entrance to the plane was safe so he can help his friends in their fights. He turned his attention to the harpy furthest to Xanxus. He ran towards her and took her from behind. Reji felt heavy in his hands - he couldn't concentrate. But ignoring this feeling he swung hard and stabbed the harpy in the stomach. He breathed heavily as the flight and the walk had tired him.

Stella: the harpie felt something hot hit her in the back. It probably singed a nice area of feathers, but she was wasn't aiming for the other one. She wanted to kill the asain one. Considering shed never had Asian food before. (Sorry. Bad pun ) She started winging her talons? Claws? At the boy hoping to catch him with his guard down, but that didn't see. to happen. As the boy continued upon parrying her attacks. A few second later and she felt the familiar feeling of her wind being torn open. though it wasn't enough damage yet to cause her to disintegrate. "You evil witch"

Mila: she turned to face the other just as the only girl stabbed her sisters wing. She was seathing with anger at this point, so she turned her attentioned towards the other and started clawing at the others face.

Brenda: she felt a sudden stinging pain her right wing just as some guy came up fro. behind her and stabbed her in the wing. It Sri wasn't enough to kill her, but it was enough for her to lose focus and turn to face the boy.

Linda: Linda turned her head as she felt a terrible buring sensation as she turned into a pile of dust at the boys feet.

Alena: Alena moved back just enough to save her eye from being scratched at, although she felt the sting of claws down her cheek. The stinging was enough to annoy Alena (because that would probably scar her face, ugh) so that the German let out a loud "Fick dich!" while swinging the sickle at the harpy's abdomen.

Xanxus: He counts and sees three harpies still alive and one wounded team mate and he grits his teeth. Then he unclips the pouches on his sides, his knives floating out of the packs, and he wields them expertly. He sends all ten at the harpy across from Min'gyu and flexes the wires the bronze strings slashing at the harpies as the knives pass by launching a pincer attack at all three harpies at the same time. While he does this his nose flares and it almost breaks his concentration as he realizes that the plane is starting to burn. fuck we may be screwed.

Sylvio: He looks around himself and sees the three remaining harpies, one wounded ally, and flames. 'Crap the plane is on fire. This thing could go boom if we aren't careful.' He looks at the harpy that is closest to him and smiles. "Let's dance bird." He swings his scythe at her abdomen hoping to pin her to the seat beside her by puncturing her body with the blade of his weapon.

Blake: As the harpy turned, Blake started to make the oxygen around the harpy and only around the harpy start to become extremely hot so that he could kill it without major damage to him, the people around him and the plane.

Steven: Steven started to grt tired. He didn't had such a long attle in a long time. But this couldn't et to him - he couldn't allow it. His friends and the people from the plane were in danger. Steven was still in  a bit of shock of him missing his arrowshot but he had to try again. He took one of his runeheaded arrows and pointed it to the harpy that Blake was fighting. "Alright bird wannabes. TAKE ME ON!" He sscreamed at the 3 remaining harpies as he shot the arrow at the one figting blake.

Min'gyu: Clutching his xiphos tightly, Min'gyu was determined to aid his fellow campers. "One bitch down, two more to go," the son of Morpheus muttered to himself, taking mental note of the harpies. Swallowing his fear, he rushed over to Steven. "Need some help?" He asked, twirling his xiphos.

Xanxus: He is out of harms way as he starts putting pieces of the puzzle together estimating little to no time before the plane explodes. He kicks open an emergency door and pushes the slide on to the tarmac of the airplane before turning to his teammates and yelling. "WE HAVE TO GET OFF NOW! MOVE! MOVE! MOVE!" he shouts throwing his axes at the harpies as he let's himself fall backwards onto the slide"

The Demi-gods rush the emergency exit jumping over seats, pushing harpies out the way, and dodging fire in a mad-dash attempt to get to the door. Everyone gets out in the nick of time and just as the harpies began to notice what is going on as well. Xanxus sets fire to the ramp and it burns wildly out of control trapping the harpies in the plane turned bomb. Everyone is breathing hard and eyes wide thinking maybe the plane wouldn't explode just as a clicking sound began emanating from the body of the plane. They move back slowly as a group turning to run as a giant explosion rocks the airport flinging them away from the fireball just by sheer force. They watch as the fireball consumes the plane and burns brightly as the sun.

Alena: Having rather dramatically let out a scream of "Scheisse!" as she was flung backwards, hearing the clatter of her sickle just behind her, closing her eyes protectively against the light. The cut above her eye, however small, smarts as she collides elbow-first with the ground, although it doesn't appear to be broken.

Steven: Having heardTen and Alena's screams and seeing everybody running away from the plane, Steven quickly grabbed Min'gyu 's hand (who was closest to him) "RUN!!! GET OUT OF HERE" he screamed while dragging the boy away from the plane. Steven quickly hugged Ming you from the back and spread his huge snow-white wings to fly them away fromt he plane. The group was alredy far away so the two quickly flew towards the group. "A-Are you O-okay?" Steven finally asked his friend, trying to take his breath.

Blake: As everyone rushed out of the plane, Blake flew out right after Steven making sure the wind he uses to fly didn't put out the fire, drops to the ground and puts a dime of air around him to make sure the explosion didn't harm him. "Why did you blow up our only to get to Egypt" Blake said to Xanxus after the plane went kaboom

Alena: Alena was putting the pieces together, flexing her elbow that had just hit the ground slightly awkwardly. "I want to know that too," she says, gesturing towards Blake to credit his question. "But, at least I'm alive. I might need to swear less, though, but you know...first word I thought of."

Steven: "Calm down guys. I'm sure Ten will tell us his reasoning" Steven said as he put Min'gyu on the ground, careful not to hurt him. "Right Ten?" Steven piereced the other boy with his ice blue eyes.

Xanxus: "Everyone calm down. Understand I didn't blow up our way to Egypt." He pulls the ticket out of his pocket and reads over the ticket zeroing in on the number of the plane. He looks up at the planes on the tarmac looking at the airlines and plane numbers then he looks into the air and points with a smile. "The plane we are supposed to be on is just now landing on the tarmac you guys. Which means we need to get inside now and grab our bags then hop on our plane." Looking over everyone he tries to figure out a way to get us inside "We tell the airline that those attendants set fire to the plane and tried to kill us." He puts his best innocent and scared face and waves his hand wildly at the authorities coming there way.

Alena:  The German girl blinked at the quest leader disbelievingly - by Hades, could Xanxus believe the airline to be this gullible. Nonetheless, when she reached their destination she had a plan up her sleeve, only shown by the smallest of gestures to the rest of the group. "Ich starb fast, haben Sie das gerade gesehen?" (I almost died, did you just see that?) Her voice pitched at the end in the manner of someone genuinely distressed, as some poured outside to see the carnage and others went to fetch a translator. "Ich komme aus Deutschland, nur kam ich hier wegen der Preise, und dies geschieht!" (I come from Germany, I only came here for the prices, and this happens!)

Steven: Steven looked at Alena with a confused look on his face. "Girl i speak french not german". Then he smiled nervously. This whole situation went downhill after the harpies arrived. Ten was trying to fix it but everybody was sared and there was nothing that could be done about it. Steven had to be brave and calm for the sake of the gorup. It was more than likely that they were gonna run in more troubles along the way to Egypt. So he had to do his best in order to protect the group. He puickly mumbled a prayer to his father which only Alena was able to hear because she was the closest to him. Then Steven turned to the group. "As for the convincing part" he paused "I can deal with that". With that he raised his hand and moved his fingers, refering to his abilty to charm-touch people. "We have to do this fast okay? We all move to the airline entrance together. Then me and Ten are gonna go in there and i'll charm-touch the people in it to let us on the plane." He stared at the group. "Meanwhile Blake, will you keep eye on the group?". Steven turned to his brother then to the group. "Oh and one last thing - i haven't trained the charm-touch much so it doesn't last for long and you have to move quickly okay? Hold tight - we're going to Egypt."

Blake: "Why do I have to look out" Blake said as he picked up his stuff that survived the explosion. "I could just knock them all out but I'll keep watch" he said to Steve

The group was left beaten battered and traumatized by what happened making them even more disheartened at the loss of two of their teammates. They reach the authorities and don't even have to fake the emotions on their faces while they all are questioned. In the end everyone is holding free plane tickets but Min'guy and Slyvio are holding ones with a flight to New York. After tearful good byes to their just met friends Xanxus, Blake, Steven and Alena make it onto a plane heading for Africa. All looking out the windows and thinking the same thing "What more is there to lose?" What they didn't now is that there was a lot more to lose a whole lot more.

Deserts and Monsters

Xanxus: He is woken out of his sleep as they land in Africa and the plane is jostled on the landing strip. He looks out of the window as they stop and he is met with miles and miles of plains, grasslands, and brown leafed trees. He couldn't decide if it was beautiful or really dry out here but he didn't have time to worry about that as they got off the plane. Thankfully there were no incidents but he did flinch unintentionally when he had to pass by a flight attendant. He had to grin and shrug it off as he walked away though wary now that they were off home turf.

Steven: Steven woke up as the plane landed. He was sleeping on the seat next to his friend Blake. "Huh? Are we there yet?" Steven said yawning. He look through the window and saw huge, dry grasslands. "Ten are you sure that this is the right place? I don't see much sand or pyramids.". Steven was confused. Weren't they supposed to find the Lamia in a dessert? Whatver it was the four of them would figure it out. Steven quickly got his backpack and pockets chaecked and secured and followed Xanxus outside. When they were out, after a few minutes of silence he decided to break the ice. "So what do you think? Will our little snake-mermaid friend be here somewhere? I mean i killed it onece i deffinetly don't mind doing it again right?" Steven laughed silyly. He was laughing but he was worried. For his friends. For the quest. For himself. This was gonna be quite the journey.

Blake: "You three better get ready for some searing heat" Blake said as he stuffed his katana hilt into his bag trying not to touch it with two hands at the same time. As Steven and Xanxus rushed out the plane, Blake stayed some distance behind them s{{till looking for food even though he ate on the plane. When the two other boys slowed down and Steven finished talking, Blake asked Xanxus "Where are we off to next, boss?"

Alena: "Searing heat? At least you're more used to heat than I am. I'm German. It's nearly always bloody cold in Cologne." Alena slipped out behind them, sighing,

Xanxus: He turns to his group behind him and doesn't let any emotion hide as a smile full of gratefulness crosses his lips. He becomes a little teary eyed and says "Thank you for staying with me guys. It would be impossible without you guys here and for that I appreciate you." He wipes his eyes and gets serious "That being said. We have to get on a tour bus from here to the Nile and hopefully the river will let us cruise from here to Egypt. Then from there it is a matter of time before we see the Lamia again." He looks at Steven with a wink when he says that "So does everyone have their bags and belongings? If yes." He pauses for dramatic effect and smiles wide "Let's move out team!" I have always wanted to say that line he thinks to himself excitedly while walking into the airport itself.

Steven: Steven began walking with the rest. The heat was unbearable and their water suply was starting to  run low. So to make sure his friends were comfortable and safe from the sun's rays, he spread his huge snow-white wings and positioned them so they can keep shade on everyone in the group. He wasn't flying with them so they took much lesser energy to keep them up. While walking with the other he decided to break the silence. "Soo i think that maybe when we arive at the Nile we should stop for a rest. The head is tiring us down and we can restoke on water." He suggested and then turned to Blake. "I swear when we find that little Snake-wannabe i'm gonna kill her with my own two hands. Did she have to respawn so far away?" he said and smiled charmingly. Even if they were so far away from home and in the danger of being constantly attacked - Steven was having fun. SO much fun in fact that he coudldn't help but laugh.

Blake: Blake stepped out of the shade of Steven's wings because being a child of Notus, Blake wasn't effected by the heat as much as everyone else. "I wouldn't drink the water from the Nile if I was you" Blake said. "We don't even need to get water from any river or creek cause I've got water right above us" Blake said as he made it rain above everyone.

Xanxus Turns around swiftly "You guys cut that out. We are at the tour bus no need for the mortals to get suspicious." Looks completely serious as he says this but stays under Steven's wings to keep dry until Black stops the rain. "I got the cash so we need to hurry before it takes off."
