I had suggested we have some breakfast in my cabin."I'll go get the food", she started but I stopped her."For an Athena child you have your dumb brunette moments. I can just ask the wind nymphs to bring some food. I'm in the mood for leftover Chinese." She looked at me startled."What happened to being obsessed with Mexican food?" I shrugged."I don't really know. Why dont you ask the KFC guy?" She smiled sheepishly."You're never going to let that go are you?" I nodded."Eeyup." A particularly small wind nymph came in, her hair a beautiful pastel blue and her skin translucent. She smiled and her silver eyes were very warm."Here you go, princess of the wind." She handed me some takeout, refreshingly cold as if it had been in the fridge. Then she handed Anne some chocolate chip waffles. "Thank you", I said and she disappeared."Princess of the wind?" Anne asked and I shrugged."Did you notice how it seemed she was flirting with the wall?" I nodded."It's probably me", a voice said and I turned around."SHOCKY MC SHO KINGTON", I shouted and tackle hugged him but ended up falling on my face."Um Saffron this is an Iris message." I scratched my head embarrassed."The thing I need you to do is of the greatest importance." I saluted him."What do you need?" He looked at me seriously."I would like you to send a wind nymph to give me some brownies." I facepalmed."Fine. You are just lucky I'm easy going." "Easy going?" Anne asked. "You punched Nen yesterday." I shrugged."Now you know better than to play beef related pranks on me." I cut the Iris message off. "So you taking me on your quest?" I said your bitterly."What's wrong?" She asked confusedly."It's nothing", I said and sighed."Ok", she said,"I'll leave so you can have some time to think", and she left. I grabbed my owl plushy pillow and hugged it sadly."I had thought I was finally important..." I whispered to the owl, sadly. I curled up in a tornado chair and dozed off."So you're my sis huh", a younger voice said and I turned around.
I looked at my sister. Sister. I always thought I was an only child. "Uh.. I guess we are sisters.. You're the new Aelous child?" the girl asked. "Yes.. I'm Sydney, by the way. Who are you?" I asked. Her name is Saffron. "I don't want to sound rude, but how the fladoodles are you here? I thought after me, Daddy swore off demigod children.." She asked. "I don't know, but what in the name of sanity is on your wall?" I replied, pointing at her posters covered in lipgloss. She started to blush and blew them down with the wind. "It's nothing." she spat and walked off. Weird. I grabbed my suitcase and opened it. All of my clothes and such were there, so I started to set up my bed. And simply to make it feel more like home, I lit my lavender candle that was all I had left from my mother. She died when I was younger, and I rarely light it, mainly because of my uncontrollably gusty, wind like breathing. Also, I hung a few of my cloud war paintings on the walls, and played some of my favorite music, U-KISS. "Okay, you are definitely my sister." Saffron said and I spun around to see her jamming out. "YEOGIN NEVERLAND!" I sang-screamed with the music. "Awwwies, sisterly love!" a strange voice inside my head said. "WHO ARE YOU AND HOW DID YOU GET INSIDE MY HEAD?!" I screamed. "Oh, that's just Miss Cain.. Excuse me, Mrs. Criss." Saffron told me. I'm just gonna guess she's in all of our heads, and loves Darren Criss.. "HE'S MINE YOU NINNY!" Mis.. I mean Mrs. Criss yelled in my head. Creeped out, I decided to dance to U-KISS.
Kevin of U-KISS's POV-
I woke up with a feeling there were American girls jamming out to our music. Awesome. That's all.
While jamming out, Saffron attacked me.. I'd decided to take out my photo of Kevin from U-KISS's, my favorite, photo, and hugged it. Apparently that's her favorite too. I exhaustedly jumped onto my bed and took a nap.
My little Sis Sydney crashed early. Her short, boyish cut,almost white blonde hair styled sort of like Near from death notes or Rapunzel with short hair from tangled, was sticking out in all directions. Not one direction. I chuckled at my bad joke. I looked at her cloud war paintings."This kid could be an Ares child..." I murmured and looked back at her. Under her sky blue eyes which were closed at the moment, was sky colored war paint. She was wearing cameo that shimmered and moved like the clouds on the sky. She was wearing white combat boots, which confused me quite a bit. Her tan skin looked strangely natural with her light hair. Walking over to a lavender scented candle, I glimpsed a picture of a woman with tan skin, long black hair and the same blue eyes as Sydney. She was holding a younger Sydney who had long hair and was wearing a dress,one thing I could not imagine her wearing. She was smiling like she was today. In fact she almost looked elvish, her smile mischievous and cunning as it was today. I checked Sydney's ears just to be sure. Yup, not an nymph, I thought to myself."HEY SAFFRON!" My friend Anne yelled and I covered my ears. Sydney shot up and in one quick movement pointed a gold sword studded with blue diamonds at her throat. I realized that the sword was bronze, so polished it looked gold."State your name and your business", Sydney said and Anne looked scared, despite the fact Sydney is 11."My name is Anne Carter and my business is getting ready for a quest with my friend Saffron." Sydney still looked skeptical so I added,"Fo realz y'all Anne and I are homies", I said and was delighted to hear my voice sounded sort of like America's. Sydney sheathed her sword. Anne turned to me."Who's this?" She asked."Can't you see the family resemblance", I said but it was obvious I was joking. Sydney was built like a stick while I was built like an hourglass. Plus looking at our faces the resemblance was inexistent."Anne this is my younger sis Sydney", I said and pat her shoulder once."HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA", Anne said laughing awkwardly. I facepalmed. It was going to take a while to explain.
I stared at Saffron's half sister. As I studied her features, I could tell she was into clouds. Her white blonde hair, blue eyes and cloudy makeup gave it away. "Wait. You're really Saffron's half-sister? You don't look an-," I started, "Well then again I have brown hair and blue eyes, but most of my cabin has grey eyes and blonde hair." Jokingly, Saffron simply said, "Hurr Durr Athener Chlid!" I chuckled at her joke about me being a dumb Athena child, simply because its true. I'm nowhere near as smart as the other children, who are supposedly my family. "Oh shush, you have your blonde moments too!" I said, and laughed to be sure she understood it was a joke, "Your name on your bed is spelled wrong. You're one 'f' short." She glanced over her shoulder, then looked down with a "Gosh I'm dumb." face, then she facepalmed herself. "BAD DOBBY!" she screamed in a high pitched voice, "DOBBY ALMOST SPOKE ILL OF HIS MASTER!" I was so confused, but I tried to play along with it. "Wait a second," I said, "Did you say The Master? As in Jo-" before I could finish my sentence, an angrily happy fangirl attacked me. "JOOOOOHHHHHHHNNNNN SIIIIIMMMMMMMM!" I was shocked to turn around and see Sydney. Fangirls. Can't live with them, can't live without them. As Saffron brought Kevin up again, I left the room. I knew it'd be a nasty fight.
Anne left as soon as Saffron mentioned Kevin. Shame, she's a nice girl. Just what I'd need to defeat Gaia. I didn't need any boy to distract me from my task. Sure, Kevin is Kevin but... I sighed. Looking back to my sister, I summed up her combat skills in a heart beat. She looked like she could run for a while, since her legs were athletic. But judging from how stiff her shoulders were, she wasn't flexible. Most likely afraid of falling on her back. Very cautious, most likely has a skilled eye. Probably has a dagger. Then I noticed her eyes. Hazel, sometimes grey, sometimes blue, sometimes green. They shifted quickly and sometimes, they seemed to be two colors. Though looking at her at first, she looked very ground but her eyes were one of a dreamer's. I better try not to make enemies with her."You okay Sydney? You've been quiet for a while." Saffron's voice was full of concern and I managed to smile."I'm fine. I think I'm going to practice some." Saffron smiled."Can I come too?" Sydney, remember, trust no one."I was going to practice alone but..." But? Why am I thinking of trusting her. We need some feels in this story, A voice in my head said. Another voice? Eeyup. I am Sara the fantabulous llama. Deciding to ignore that weird voice in my head I begrudgingly said."Ok. You can come." Little did I know what I was getting into. SUSPENSE, said the author Sara.
I was sitting in the bunk above my brother in the Apollo cabin, when I had the sudden urge to watch the Ares kids fight. That failed. "GO AWAY WEAKLING!" one yelled. "We don't need your stupid clarinet or whatever here." A girl sneered. Feeling sad, I decided to go practice. I walked in the room to see Saffron talking to a girl that I've never seen before. She had white-blonde hair, blue eyes, and tan skin. Besides the fact that she looked young, maybe 11 or 12, and looked tough, she reminded me of a beach model. "Hey Saffron! Who's your friend?" I yelled to her, waving my hand. Bad idea, Atash. "AAAAAATAAAASH!" she screamed, lunging forward at me, probably to tie my hands up or something. "What the heck is wrong with me?" I sighed, dashing off to the Apollo cabin, where she finally attacked me. "Shut up Ares children, I was trying to sleep!" a groggy Niran of the Hephaestus cabin said. He looks a lot like me and my brother, with caramel skin, dark eyes, and dark hair, but he's a lot shorter. "Silly Niran! Im an awesome Aeolus child, and Atash here is a son of Apollo! Duh." Saffron said to him. "Yeah, whatever. As long as I can get my sleep." Niran said.
After my sister attacked that guy... What was his name? Atash? I tried to escape and I did. Quite easily since Saffron was chatting with some unknown guy, most likely a Hephaestus child due to the way his hands were shaped. In the arena I spotted two Ares kids, each 16, extremely buff, and both bashing the heads of dummies. Standing straight I approached them. Don't let any weakness show, the voice of my old friend Alex rang in my head. An image of a 13 year old girl with fiery orange hair and blue eyes that were as deep as the ocean appeared in my mind. But I could almost imagine that Saffron... Was Alex. They looked nothing alike but the determination was the same."Hey pipsqueak", a deep voiced ares child said rudely."What are you doing in the sword arena?" They laughed at me and I smiled."I'm beating you losers at a sword fight", I answered and drew my bronze sword."I'm sooooo scared", the other one said, his voice reminding me of Adam Sandler mixed with the rock. Definitely a strange combo. The first one drew a bow and arrows and the other drew a spear. The spear was stained with something I hoped wasn't blood."Bring it on", I said and pointed my sword towards the air and brought it down swiftly, sending a wave of air their way. They didn't budge. In one fluid motion, the first one notched and arrow into the bow and as it whizzed forward I knew it would miss. I closed my eyes waiting for the impact. The whizzing stopped and I opened my eyes. Saffron was standing there, a silver dagger studded with different colored blue gems in hand, and two halves of an arrow at her feet. She clucked her tongue in disappointment."Really? A bow and arrows? Play fair or else." The ares kids glared at her and the one with the bows and arrows drew a sword that was glowing slightly red. I took a deep breath and lunged. The first one dodged but ended up falling on his back, his weapon flying away but he curled his fists and started to punch me. First my leg but I dodged, and all I got was brushed past. The other one aimed his spear at my chest and I regret not wearing armor. I managed to side turn but it hit a little bit of my ribs. By now, I was bleeding terribly but still moving swiftly. The world started to fade and I blacked out.
The ares kids weren't done when Sydney fell. One went to stab her and I pushed them back. They flew back considerably, thanks to the wind nymphs secretly pushing them back."What do you think you're doing?" I asked and crossed my arms."That little twerp needs to learn a thing or two about fighting", one scoffed and I punched them. Right in the face. Luckily, for some odd reason I had decided to wear fingerless gloves, because without them my hand probably would have broken. The other one lunged for me and I dodged. He swung his weapon at me but I jumped and avoided it. My foot touched glowing red sword and suddenly everything went dark. I stumbled around blindly and threw my arm out in a 360 and I felt impact."Owwwww", the familiar voice of my new BFF Niran. My vision came back. Niran was holding a bronze mallet that was glowing blue, yellow, and orange in that exact order, like a candle. At his feet was the guy with the glowing red sword."Help me with her", I said after I picked up Sydney."Do I have to?" I glared at him. He saluted me."Ay Ay captain. Just don't hurt me." I grinned to myself but it lasted only a moment. Niran and I carried Sydney somewhere to get help.
"Saffron, what do we do with her?" I asked, carrying a girl who seems to be two or three years younger than me. "Well, let's take her to Amber Elethia of the Athena cabin. She's training to be a doctor. " Saffron told me, and we carried her sister to the Athena cabin. Saffron and I laid her sister, who I learned is named Sydney, down on a hospital-type bed. "What happened to her?" a girl with light brown hair and amber eyes said. She was wearing a long doctor's coat and a stethoscope. I assumed that she was the Amber girl that Saffron told me about. Saffron started explaining, when a wind nymph came and interrupted. "It's all that twerp's fault!" she yelled, "Don't help her, she deserves what she gets for fighting with the Ares children." This made Saffron angry. "SHUT UP BRISA!" she screamed, "She's only a little girl! And plus, she's my sister. So leave her alone!" With that, Anne walked up, obviously tired. "What's going on?" she asked halfheartedly, rubbing her eyes, "Is that Saffron and Nen?" I eventually spoke up. "It's me, Niran. Saffron's sister got hurt." She simply yawned and went back to her nap. "What... What's going on? Where am I?" Sydney said as she woke up. She looked over at the slash on her ribs, and looked disgusted. Immediately she sat up. "I can take care of myself." she snapped, knowing Saffron and I were going to help her out.
I looked all around. "Where is my purse?" I demanded. "I brought it with me." Nobody responded. "It must be in the Aeolus cabin." I walked off, Saffron chasing after me. "I can help you!" She yelled. "I don't need you to, and I didn't need your help earlier either!" I plopped onto my bed and grabbed a large syringe, antibacterial cream, and a bandage. I tended to my wound, and calmed down. "I'm sorry Saffron. You saved my life, thank you." I said. "It's okay. I bet you'd do the same to me." She said, and Anne ran in. "Is everything alright? I heard about what happened!" Anne said to us, panting. "Yeah. I'm fine, and so is Saff." I said bluntly. "Well, just to be sure, I'm staying with y'all." Anne stated, and she hopped onto a bed next to mine that I'd never noticed. It was dark blue, and looked like the TARDIS. The bedside table had a lime green photo frame with a photo of Benedict Cumberbatch in it, and with that I could tell it was a bed Anne used sometimes. Also, the board with a photo of her on it, drawings on one side of her photo, and photos of celebrities, and fandoms on the other side. "I'm guessing Anne comes here a lot." I said, questioning the area beside me. "Yep! She's my best friend, duh!" Saffron said with a smile on her face. I guess I'll have to get used to having a slap-happy, hyper, and basically mental girl around.
