"Chemistry is me running my fingers down your spine and it setting your whole body on fire..."
Finally Tyler had accepted to take Jake to meet Benny, his 'friend'. Due to his deeply strong connection with Tyler and his love powers, he knew that at least, Tyler had a crush on Benny, but he knew there was more to it. He walked next to Tyler, with an arm around Tyler's shoulder in a protective fashion, although Jake wasn't sure by himself why or what he was protecting Tyler from.

Children of Eros can manipulate the thoughts of a person for a short period of time in order to make them able to only think about the person or thing they love or favor most. Once used on a person it becomes ineffective on that person for a moderate amount of time.
Children of Eros have the ability to focus an emotional energy beam out of their love, which will burn anything it touches.
Children of Eros can cause people of the gender they are attracted to, to lose all desire to attack them for a short time (in the case being that they are bisexual or pansexual etc it would be only people with the same gender of their current or most recent partner). Once the child is attracting someone, they cannot attack. So the power is purely defensive.
Children of Eros can generate a veil of the emotional energy from the feeling of love, the veil will protect them from damage for a short time, but cannot be used if the child does not have the love to fuel it.
Children of Eros cause anyone of the opposite gender to be, at least slightly, attracted to them, they also attract people of the same gender that consider themselves gay or lesbian.
Children of Eros are innately proficient archers.
Children of Eros have a partial resistance to charmspeak, charm-touch etc.
Children of Eros can detect emotional ties between different people, if they’re lovers, friends etc. and can find out about someone’s previous partners, including: if they had sex, and how long the relationship lasted. They can also easily tell their sexuality and ideal partner, it works better the more emotionally concerned the child of Eros is for the target.
Children of Eros can manipulate the feeling of love of people by either removing it or increasing it towards themselves or other people. This is temporary and requires a lot of energy, although using it towards oneself requires less than if it were towards other people. Ex: They can make someone love and admire them, or hate them, or make best friends hate each other, or two enemies feel love for eachother.
Children of Eros can infuse emotional love magic into their arrows or any other weapon in their possession, if the weapons hits the intended target, the target will temporarily fall in love with the first object or person they see for a moderate time. After which, the target is immune to further use of it for the rest of the fight. (Note:The Love magic works better when used with arrows though.)
Children of Eros can decrease or increase someone’s lust, such as increasing a desire for sexual intercourse or simply wiping it out. An increase in sexual desire can be resisted by sheer willpower and will only last for a short time, this depends on the magnitude of the target’s sexual desire before it was attempted to be altered.
Since their father was depicted as a winged god, children of Eros can sprout wings for a short time, this enables them to fly; the longer they maintain this state, the more energy it drains. They must rest between flights and cannot make long distance traveling without resting often. However the wings are vulnerable to injuries and magic; they can also be customized to the user’s preference.

Children of Eros can infuse magic into their grasp, and ‘charm-touch’ another person into doing their will or revealing a secret to them. The person will remain under the control of the charm-touch for a few minutes or until control is relinquished, and the child of Eros must touch the skin of the person they want to affect. ‘Charm-touch’ is considered more powerful and can override charmspeak due to the fact the user must make physical contact with the target.
6 Months After Character is Made
Children of Eros are now able to channel their loving emotional energies to construct combative and non-combative objects, formed one at a time and no more than 2 to 3 times the size of the user, which takes on beautiful, magnificent and seemingly harmless appearances depending on the user's preferences. They can also create semi-living constructs under the user’s complete control. However, their ability to use the power, and control the construct, is hindered before or during use when they experience emotions that are like hate or malice. As these emotions are felt, the strength of the object begins to fade, becoming dull and brittle.
9 Months After Character is Made
Children of Eros can feed off the love they’ve given or received in their lives and become an embodiment of love. This would make them more powerful, immune to all attacks, enhancing their physical prowess and power over emotional energy they previously possessed. This only lasts for a short time, after which the user will be so exhausted they would lack the ability to even move for some time.
In some cases Children of Eros tend to be fiercely loyal and compassionate to their loved ones, friends, and family. In other cases, they love creating romantic strife. Cheating on partners, seducing others already in relationships etc.
Children of Eros tend to be very flirty and attractive, causing them to retain a youthful skin/hair/facial appearance than others after completing puberty.
Children of Eros tend to be very mischievous and cunning, often seen making plans to prank or matchmake other campers.
Children of Eros typically get along with children of Aphrodite.

Eager to see Benny again, he walked with Jake to meet him at the beach, "You're gonna like him, he's fun, playful, imaginative, brave...." he found himself blushing so he cut himself off.

"It is with youth as with plants; from the first fruits they bear we learn what may be expected in future."
Waiting at the beach, Benny is full of nerves. Normally he's pretty happy to go and introduce himself to anyone. But this was different. Whenever he thought of Tyler, his cheeks turned the same colour as coral. What if Jake doesn't like me? He picks a smooth pebble off the ground. Taking a deep breath to steady himself, Benny skims it across the water.

Jake: The son of Eros smirked at Tyler's comment. I'm not sure I'll be the only guy who likes Benny... They continued walking for sometime until he noticed a guy about Tyler's age on the beach. He discreetly pointed at him and whispered to Tyler's ear: "Is that Benny over there?"
Tyler: "Yes." He nods and breaks out of Jake's arm and hurries over to Benny, "Benny!" Reaching him, Tyler gives the son of Hebe a hug.
Benny: As soon as he turns around, Benny's enveloped in a hug. He wraps his arms around Tyler's neck and returns the hug. Looking over Ty's shoulder, he spots the son of Eros and blushes. "Ohai. You must be Jake..." He offers a handshake. "Um, I'm Benny. It's nice to meet you..."
Jake: At the beginning, he feels a bit uncomfortable for some reason at watching Tyler and Benny hug each other. Maybe jealous? No, Jake wasn't the jealous type. "It's nice to meet you too..." he shook Benny's hand firmly. "If I recall correctly you are a son of Hebe? Tyler speaks about you frequently." Jake spoke both confidently and reassuringly.
Benny: "He does?" His eyes light up, betraying his excitement. Realising what he's just said, Benny kicks himself. "Um, yeah. Hebe's my mom." He smiles cheerfully, trying to change the subject. "You're a son of Eros, right? Ty talks about you and Jacob all the time."
Jake: "Oh, does he?" Jake grinned "Well, I'm like his family, and I guess that you are a really close friend to him, so it makes sense that he talks about both of us." Jake grinned. "Well, I've been waiting a long time to meet you." He expelled some pheromones and aimed them to Benny, he was perceiving that he wasn't straight, but if he used his pheromones as a sample, it would be easier to know what his attraction was like.
Benny: "Um yeah...." Chattering away, Benny's hit by the scent of vanilla and cotton candy. He inhales it for a moment, the scent making him a little bit dizzy before he turns to Jake. Obviously, it must be a side effect of being around a son of Eros. Alex had taught him a little about their powers, but he never would have guessed that it would be that strong. "Ty's really brave and creative and fun..." He blushes a bit. "So, what do you wanna do today?"
Jake: Bi it is... Jake smirked inside his head, but in the outside he just grinned genuinely; he did want to spend some time with Tyler's new friend to qualify him and hopefully approve him for Tyler. "Uhmm, I'm not sure, I thought that was Tyler's choice..."
Tyler: "Maybe we could go into town for fun?" He suggests, "Go to the stores, look at stuff...." He didn't really feel like buying anything since he had both his psudeo big brother and boyfriend with him.
Benny: "I guess so..." Shrugging his shoulders, he glances across to Tyler. "Dad just got me some pocket money. We could go get candy if you want, or do something cool like mini golf or ice skating. C'mon, it'll be loads of fun."
Jake: "I'll take you guys, wherever you want to go, really. Actually, I'll pay. Giving love advice costs money at times, and that means I technically get money for free." he winked at Benny in a friendly way.
Tyler: "Minigolf sounds fun." Tyler smiles, "You're the candy expert Benny, where do you recommend?"
Benny: "It'll be great..." Benny perks up. The prospect of free candy and games is a tempting one. He bounces on the balls of his feet in anticipation, "Laz took me to this place called the Candied Cauldron. They have loads of really cool candies, like British ones, and a cotton candy machine." He grins. "You'll love it..."
Jake: Not even thinking about interrupting, Jake intruded the younger demigods' small conversation with a question. "Laz? Who the heck is he?"
Benny: "Oh. He's like my older brother. He's a son of Limos, and he brought me to camp." He pauses for a moment. It's difficult to condense his relationship with Laz in a few words. He's like an older brother, a mentor, and a best friend all in one. "Shall we go?"
Tyler: He eagerly nods, "Yeah!" He was already trying to imagine all the different colored candies that would be at the store.
Jake: "Interesting indeed." he nodded at Benny. "And yeah, we should get going. But... I don't have any clue were this candie store might be. Mind leading the way, Benny?"
Benny: "Sure, try to keep up." Sticking his tongue out, Benny leads them down the road into town. The Candied Cauldron is quite a large building. There's an image of a witch stirring her cauldron with a liquorice stick. "It's here slowpokes." He giggles and enters the store, looking for his usual candies. The attendant seems to know him well.
Jake: He hadn't admmitted it yet, but Jake had had an extremely sweet tooth when he was younger, and his love for sweets had naturally faded a bit after the years, but the small part that had stayed there, suddenly revived as Jake's eyes lit up, watching all the candies that sorrounded him. "Benny? Which are the best candies in here?"
Benny: "Look around..." He giggles. There's a well-stocked counter filled with old-fashioned sweets and a revolving cotton candy machine. There are several aisles, ranging from candied mice, bags of candy blood for halloween and shelves for chewing gum. He crouches down and finds a small box. "You should try these toxic ones Jake. They're really yucky and sour!"
Jake: As he saw them, he grinned, he thought that he'd seen them before. He liked acid flavours, but he wasn't sure if he'd liked these candies when he'd tried them. "Okay, let's buy them... "
Benny: "What about you Ty?" Benny sticks his tongue out. He hunts through the various aisles, taking his time to browse through the new sweets. He finds some chocolate kisses, which he puts in his bag to buy, and a couple of other packets. "Um, I think these are colour changing candies. They have different flavours and they even turn your tongue a different colour!"
Tyler: Coming over from the M&Ms, Tyler smiles at Benny, "Really? Let's get some then!" He adds them to the small collection of M&Ms he had. "Jake, what are you getting?"
Jake: "These apparently 'yucky and sour' candies that Benny advised me to try. Not sure if that's a sign that he likes me or not, but I'll trust your love-" he stopped for a second and noticed some candies he'd loved when he was ten. "-ly friend." he walked towards them and got some. "And apparently I'll take these too."
Benny: He tries one of the candies. As he chews, his tongue and lips turn to an electric blue colour. "Isn't it super-cool?" Glancing over to Jake, he smiles at Tyler. His friend seems nice. It's a little intimidating meeting a son of Eros, but Benny figures that he's probably just as nervous. "I found this, for you..." He makes a small bow and passes the son of Iris a chocolate rose.
Tyler: Blushing faintly, he giggles, "Why thank you..." he pretends to take a sniff of the rose and places in the basket with the rest of them.
Jake: Jake sighed quietly. Would you two make out already? he thought, in his ever-so love son way. "That's nice." Was all he could muster to say.
Tyler: Nodding, he holds Benny's hand and goes over to Jake, "Whatcha looking at? Something you like? Chocolate? Fruity?"
Jake: "Oh, just some candies I recall I liked very much when I was a bit younger than you."
Benny: "You're welcome." Benny intertwines his fingers with Tyler's. When he doesn't think Jake is looking, he whispers in his ear. "I think you've got chocolate on your lips." He giggles, slyly kissing the corner of his mouth, before acting all innocent. "Um, are we ready to go?"
Tyler: Blushing, he nods, "I am, how about you Jake." He found it cute how Benny kept coming up with excuses to kiss him.
Jake: "I am too Tyler. " Jake looked at Benny. "So tell me, wat's your favourite movie?"
Benny: "Um, I really like the Lion King. I think the Land Before Time is also pretty awesome." He grins excitedly, and reels off a list of movies that Jake must watch. "What about you? I like Frozen, but Hans is really mean and it makes me feel a bit sad." He shrugs his shoulders and pays the lady at the counter. "Um, thanks..."
Jake: "Oh really?" he looked a bit amused by Benny's choice of movies. "Well, believe it or not, I'm a great fan of chick flicks" He laughed. "Well, just of one chick flick. Mean Girls. I don't know if you've heard about it, but it's pretty darn good at prtraying today's society. I also love the movie Inception. Very deep and it makes you think, which I gladly appreciate."
Benny: "I don't like girly movies! They're boring." Benny sticks his tongue out. "I wish they had brave knights and giant drakons." He winks, becoming somewhat more comfortable in Jake's presence. In his mind, he assumes that it's typical for the Eros Cabin to stock chick flicks or something. "Are we gonna go ice-skating or go play mini-golf?"
Tyler: "I'm up for minigolf," Tyler suggest as the went up to the counter to pay, "There's one a few blocks away from my dad's apartment at home." He remembers the fun he had painting a mural for them once and how proud his dad had been, but this only makes him homesick. Benny had gotten to see his mom and dad on the quest; even Jake got to meet his uncle and dad on the other quest. He really started to wish he could go home for a bit to visit.
Benny: "We should go sometime. I'm sure your dad would love us to visit." He smiles and grips Tyler's hand tighter. As they finish paying, Benny leads them towards the local mini-golf course. It's your standard 18 holes with clowns that squirt water at the players, ones that lead under a giant UFO and ones which lead down stairs. "C'mon. It'll be awesome. I'm pretty good at mini-golf."
