Hyung-Seok: Hyung-Seok comfortably seated himself in a canoe before smiling to himself and picking up the oar to begin rowing. Taking advantage of the strangely sunny day, he had decided to go canoeing to entertain himself.
Alyce: Alyce is in her two piece bikini and swimming in the lake having fun with the naiads trying to relax and take her mind off of the mind breaking research and battle plans that she had been working on with her other siblings when she sees the canoe and ducks before it smacks her in the head,
Hyung-Seok: "Oops..." he muttered under his breath. Once the canoe passed the group and glanced over his shoulder and shouted, "Sorry!"
Alyce: "No problem," she says with a mischevious smile before whispering to the naiads a plot to go and overturn the canoe. Once they all agree, she and the naiads begin swimming underwater to implement their plan eventually ending up right under the canoe ready to go.
Hyung-Seok: More or less at peace with himself, he felt as if nothing was wrong which was quite the opposite of the impending situation. He only had a few seconds to notice the disturbance in the water before his canoe tipped over and flung him into the water. He immediately panicked because he had almost no idea how to get to the surface. In a chaotic state of mind, he flung his limbs left and right in an attempt to bring himself above the water but failed.
Alyce: Having already planned for this potential problem she was ready to catch him holding on for dear life while he shook and quickly took him to the surface laughing crazily with the rest of the naiads while they turned his canoe back around "Was that fun?" she asks with a cute and adorable smile while still giggling.
Hyung-Seok: He coughed several times, spitting out water. "No, that was not fun," he grimaced in annoyance. It was somewhat difficult to get Hyung-Seok even the slightest bit annoyed, so this could be considered a record being able to get him angry of a world-breaking record of a minute. "I could've drowned," he continued. "And you're laughing."
Alyce: She speaks in his mind "I am a daughter of Athena you don't think I planned it such a way that you wouldn't drown? Come on I wouldn't let that happen that would be wrong" she then looks him in they eyes and smiles warmly hoping he has been soothed
Hyung-Seok: His eyes slowly widened in shock and he opened his mouth but said no words. He sputtered for a few seconds before he shook himself out of his limbo. "Y-You're speaking in my head... H-How?" He was not at all soothed in any way. He was still a bit angry, but most of his fury had faded to surprise and curiosity.
Alyce: "Athena's domain is that sweet beautiful mind of yours so I can speak to it and feel that you are curious and still a bit angry," She says with a little sad face trying to let her cuteness soothe him.
Hyung-Seok: "I..." Unable to continue his sentence he let blush overcome his cheeks and looked away from her. Finally, he cleared his throat and found his voice. "Can you help me back over to the docks? I want to dry myself off."
Alyce: "Sure," she said with a smile putting him on her back and swimming toward the dock before lifting him up and setting him on the dock. "Take note we are going to teach you how to swim at some point," she says to him before joining him on the dock
Hyung-Seok: He just blinked at her speech. "We are? Who is?" Hyung-Seok tsked and removed his shirt to wring out the water. "So what's your name anyway?" he continued after a bout of silence. "I'm Hyung-Seok, feel free to give me a nickname or something. Most people can't pronounce my name anyway."
Alyce: She speaks his name perfectly in his mind before saying "I can teach you, you know and I am Alyce Montague Daughter of Athena known to some as The Alpha and Omega" she says with a smile and a small bow before giggling.
Hyung-Seok: He simultaneously shuddered and closed his eyes. "I'm never going to get used to that," he mumbled, opening his eyes again to look at Alyce. "You sure like to laugh a lot. Do you find my struggles entertaining or something?"
Alyce: "Oh you will I feel it," she says before looking him in the eye "I tend to giggle a lot in front of cute boys," she says sticking her tongue out a little with a smile
Hyung-Seok: "You... think I'm cute?" he coughed. He had the options of laughing or just staring at the girl dumbfounded. Sure, Jay had flirted with him before, but the difference was that he knew Jay, and Jay was a boy. This was a complete stranger who he had met because he had almost drowned, and she thought he was cute. He struggled to wrap his brain around it, so he just stared at her.
Alyce: She reads his thoughts "Just because I am a stranger doesn't mean I can't think someone is cute you know" she says with a smile
Hyung-Seok: "I guess not," he shrugged. "But what about me makes you pin me as cute? I'm still half convinced someone is pranking me right now. Things like this don't happen often as you can tell."
Alyce: She goes into great detail about all of his many great features that make him hot and then goes into how she found the way he reacted to be cute considering the worse things that could happen.
Hyung-Seok: "You didn't need to be that specific, but I understand now." He folded his shirt neatly and set it down beside him. "Daughter of Athena right? Because you haven't told me like three times. I'm a Son of Nyx."
Alyce: "That's awesome," she says "had a lot of experience with your powers?" she says thinking to all the briefs she filed with her cabin about their powers "and sorry? I mean when you ask what a girl finds cute about you expect her to go into detail"
Hyung-Seok: "I know. That was my mistake—asking." He tilted his head as he said this, swinging his feet as they hung from the edge of the dock. "More or less. My weapons are my powers so."
Alyce: She laughs "It wasn't a mistake don't worry," she says before going into detail about how his powers can be used to his advantage
Hyung-Seok: He sighed and held up his hand to stop her, trying his hardest not to sound annoyed. "As interesting as that sounds, I don't need a fifteen-page essay on how to use my powers. I think I got that covered, so can you please... I don't know... stop?" he deadpanned. "Since you're the reason I am wet and shivering, you wouldn't mind if I went to get a towel, would you?"
Alyce: Her look suddenly got darker as she nodded "Fine go on" she replied
Hyung-Seok: "—I won't leave right now, though," he said after she had responded. He smiled at her shifted his sitting position to face her. He took the time now to admire the girl's looks and it didn't take him awhile to conclude she was obviously out his of his league. How did I get her to talk to me in the first place? "You're beautiful by the way, and also way out of my league," he commented.
Alyce: She looks at him with a mischevious smile "Oh I wouldn't be so sure pretty boy" she says sticking her tongue out a little teasing him.
Hyung-Seok: His face flamed and he laughed a little. "You're having way too much fun with this," he chuckled, admiring her smile. "My face is probably very red right now. Might as well resemble a tomato."
Alyce: "Sure is and it looks very cute that way," she says lying on her back and looking up at him admiring his abs among other things
Hyung-Seok: "I dare you to find three unattractive things about me," he challenged, tapping her temple. "That Athena brain has to be good for more than analyzing information."
Alyce: "Oh it is but that might take a while to figure out," she says sticking her tongue out again playfully lying down in a way she knows his mind will like.
Hyung-Seok: "Take however long you want," he replied with a shrug. He shifted a little so he could study her figure more. "I'll give you until the rest of the day."
Alyce: "Oh but it may take me the rest of my life maybe its the one thing I never know," she says following his eyes examining her body.
Hyung-Seok: He soon noticed her wandering eyes. Although the sentence was hypocritical in itself since he was practically doing the same thing too, he said the sentence anyway. "Hey, my eyes are up here Alyce."
Alyce: "Same could be said for you I am following your eyes" she replies with a smirk adding "and your mind" in his mind.
Hyung-Seok: He smiled, still chilled by her voice dancing in his head. "I guess we should both stop, shouldn't we sweetheart?"
Alyce: "Only if you want to dear I sense you don't want to," she says reading his feelings.
Hyung-Seok: "Cheeky, aren't you?" He leaned closer to her as he said this, making an evident change in his tone of voice.
Alyce: "Quite," she says as she lightly smiles and leans a little toward him.
Hyung-Seok: He wanted to continue teasing Alyce, but he was quickly growing cold and he hated shivering. He slightly wondered if it still bothered Alyce if he left and then remembered she could read minds so he put that thought to an end. He shifted, combing through his wet hair with his fingers as he thought of a new conversational topic.
Alyce: "Want to go somewhere warm?" she asked him warmly thinking of warm places they could be alone.
Hyung-Seok: He shrugged, but he honestly did want to go somewhere warm. "Sure, I'm fine with that..." A sudden smirk overcame his lips and before he knew what he was saying, he said it. "I'm sure you have a few places in mind, don't you?" he whispered with a tinge of seduction in his tone.
Alyce: She giggled knowingly "Oh yes do my room or your room sound appealing?"
Hyung-Seok: Wait... He began to think, but he immediately shut himself up and shot Alyce a smirk. "How about yours?" Hey! Inner him protested only to be silenced again.
Alyce: Well aware of the internal struggle within him and which side is winning she smiled internally "Sure" she says turning around but looking back at him with a slightly seductive smirk before leading him to her room
Hyung-Seok: You know you shouldn't be doing this... muttered the imaginary angel sitting on his shoulder, swinging its legs. Hyung-Seok sighed quietly, refusing to answer to it. Eh, let him do whatever he wants... Hyung-Seok wanted to swat the things off his shoulder, but they were figments of imagination, so he couldn't. He continued following Alyce with the same smirk despite his conflicted mind.
Alyce: Still in his mind, she senses the conflicts and sways her hips subtly thinking that could possibly help put this conflict to rest. She opens the door and lets him in "Welcome to my room" she says with a slightly seductive smirk.
Hyung-Seok: You really sh— "Actually Alyce," he piped up, eager to get that stupid reprimanding voice out of his head. "Do you have any drawing supplies of any sorts?" he asked. He kind of felt like laughing, mainly because of the awkward transition after leading her on.
Alyce: Seeing as she was unable to quiet the voice she gets a little frustrated and points over to the drawing supplies before using her power to calm him thus ridding the voice from his head "Interesting choice of transition after leading me on I expected better" she says in his head the voice in his head having a tinge of anger
Hyung-Seok: "I apologize greatly. Figuring you can well, read minds I think you sensed the inner conflict?" He smiled softly at her at walked over to the supplies. He inspected it for a second before taking a drawing pad and a pencil and then gestured to her bed. "Sit, I want to draw you."
Alyce: "Yes and I have used my power to end the internal struggle at least temporarily" still in a bit of a seductive mindset she smiled mischievously and asked him "how would you like me to pose?"
Hyung-Seok: He pretended to think about it because he could honestly care less. "Let one leg hang over the edge of the seat while you set the other on your seat and wrap your arms around it." He decided to add something else to feed Alyce's state of mind. "Keep your legs a considerable distance apart."
Alyce: She posed in the way he wanted before saying in his mind with a bit of frustration "I know you don't care and stop teasing me by feeding my mind if you aren't going to be in the same state of mind"
Hyung-Seok: He threw his head back, laughing at her. But's it fun for me. Not so fun being a daughter of Athena now, is it? he thought teasingly. I'll stop, I'll stop, I promise.
Alyce: "It never was fun knowledge is a blessing and a curse how exactly do you feel I am not a person who likes being played with" she said in his mind angrily beginning to pull away from him defensively and thinking of where her control panel for her room's defense system was.
Hyung-Seok: "Understandable." A flicker of his past haunted him and he straightened his posture. "I'll stop, I swear this time. I won't continue."
Alyce: She felt his feelings within him and calmed down "Fine" she says as she moves back toward him and spreads her legs some "Good view?" she asks with a smile
Hyung-Seok: "Yeah," he hummed softly before going to work drawing Alyce. After awhile he glanced back up at her. "You can move now if you feel stiff. I got the basics down and I can go from there."
Alyce: She moved off of the bed and then wrapped her arms around him and watched trying to read his mind and figure out what he would do if she sat on his lap
Hyung-Seok: "Go ahead," was all he said to her before continuing. "Your hair isn't dry yet. Do you want it up or down in this picture?"
Alyce: "He is growing used to my presence" she thought to herself before she carefully sat on his lap and laid her head on his shoulder watching him work
Hyung-Seok: He rested his chin on her head as he worked, gradually feeling more comfortable as time passed. He hadn't finished the drawing yet but set it aside to further talk to Alyce.
Alyce: Once he put the drawing aside she pressed herself against him mischievously and looked up at him "You are sooooo warm"
Hyung-Seok: "I'll take that as a compliment, it is a compliment right? Or are you just cold?" he questioned, tapping her nose.
Alyce: "Yes it's a compliment" she said snuggling into his chest.
