Leo decided that she could never look bad in anything she wore.
Calypso came out of Piper's room with a faded tang-top, which showed off her awesome figure, and some regular sweat pants, with the bottoms torn up from overuse, which didn't as much. With the state of her clothes and the aura of weariness surrounding her, she could have easily been living on the street for the past couple of days, besides the fact that her hair was perfect, and she was hot.
And she was still out of his league.
Leo grinned, pushing those thoughts aside. "You actual look semi-normal now."
"Ha ha," she said sarcastically. She looked at his clothes, making him look down too. They were worn down as well. Faded pants with a white shirt. Super classy. He could have been living on the street for the past year, with the fact that his hair was a mess and he didn't look near as stunning. "You don't look half bad yourself."
Piper came out of her room, still wearing the same stuff she was before. She shrugged, glancing at Leo first then at Calypso's outfit. "Something simple, I figured you didn't want to be sleeping in a dress or shorts."
Calypso smiled at her. "Thank you."
"Don't mention it," Piper replied, grinning back. " I need to go back up on deck, me, Jason and Frank are taking first watch. . . We don't want anymore surprises."
"'Course we don't Beauty Queen," Leo laughed, while Calypso blushed some. He didn't realize that comment would make her embarrassed, but he could understand now. He could tell that she didn't like being the center of attention on the Argo II.
Piper smiled at her again. "Don't worry about it. We're used to surprises by now."
"Yeah, it's not like you have ever given us a surprise. . ."
Piper just smiled, like she was winning. Leo could beg to differ. "Your surprises are way bigger. Like, let's say, giant shrimp monsters." She looked pointedly at him, as if waiting for a retort that she knew would never come.
Calypso stared blankly at her, and Leo laughed loudly. He switched to the defensive tactic. "That still isn't my fault! Hazel distracted me!"
"The fact that we were almost related!"
Piper just stared at him. "Why wasn't I informed of this?"
"Wait nobody told you?"
"No!" Piper looked around wildly, as if looking for somebody to blame for her not knowing beforehand. "Why was I out of the loop?"
"Hmm. . ." Leo said, pondering, not paying attention to the daughter of Aphrodite shouting in front of him. "I guess Frank and Hazel didn't tell anyone."
"Wait, so Frank knew and not-"
"What is going on?" Calypso interrupted.
Leo looked over and laughed at her expression. "Sorry," he said, putting an arm around her. "But it seems that you're not the only one that needs to be caught up."
Calypso shrugged off his arm immediately, laughing. Leo tried not to be too hurt. She was just joking, he told his brain.
"Apparently," Piper huffed. Leo joined Calypso in laughing, getting over his uneasiness. The only difference was that he was laughing at Piper's expression.
Piper's lips stretched out a little, almost forming a smile. "Get some sleep Repair Boy."
Leo saluted her. "Aye aye, Beauty Queen."
She smirked that time and turned, heading for the stairs up to the deck.
Once she disappeared up the steps Leo turned back towards Calypso, still grinning.
She returned the smile. "You two are close," she noted.
"Yeah, Piper's like the annoying sister I never had- or wanted for that matter," he teased, shaking his head slightly.
"Try having hundreds of them," Calypso said, rolling her eyes.
"Hundreds?" he asked, sounding shocked.
"My parents are immortal, and so is your father! Do you not have a lot of siblings?"
"I guess. . . I never really considered them my direct family, just kind of knew that they are closer than most others," Leo responded. He then grinned. "Who was your favorite sibling?"
"I never really picked favorites," Calypso said, sounding like she was thinking a lot more than she should have at the playful question. "Hmm. I would have to say Zoë, she is my half-sister on my father's side."
Leo's thoughts turned to a story that he had heard back at camp, about someone who had that same name. "Wait. . . what happened to her?"
"Happened to her? What do you mean?" she asked, sounding somewhat worried.
"Um. . ." he responded, not sure what exactly to say. He asked another question to avoid. "What did she do? Like, what was her job?"
"She worked in the garden of the Hesperides with her sisters," she answered, staring at him confused. "Why?"
"Oh," he sighed, relieved. "Nothing, I was thinking of another Zoë. This one was in the Hunters of Artemis. Percy knew her."
"Knew?" she questioned. "Is she. . ."
"Oh. . ."
Calypso stared awkwardly at the ground for a moment, seemingly not sure what to say about the unknown girl.
"It's not like I knew her. It was just another story floating around at camp." Leo explained. "So. . ." he continued, sounding anxious to change the topic. "Did you have a favorite bro?"
"Bro?" she asked, staring strangely at him.
"Brother," he laughed. "Sorry, I said I would use smart talk for you."
"Do you actually walk around calling your brothers 'bro'?"
She closed her eyes and shook her head, as if scolding him. "Mortals just keep getting weirder and weirder."
Leo just shrugged. "We only got so long to live so why not be crazy?"
"You are just a perfect example of that."
"I try," he said, laughing. "Don't act like you're not crazy on the inside."
"Well, you're crazy for me. . ."
Calypso just sighed, dropping her chin down. Of course that meant she was going to be all over him later. Obviously. "You need to get some sleep."
"So do you!"
"Okay then, good night!" she turned around, heading back into Piper's room.
"You mean good morning," Leo said, delaying. "And no good morning kiss?"
She turned, smiling and rolling her eyes. She quickly leaned in and kissed him on the lips. Leo took another step closer to her, pushing his luck.
Calypso split off a minute later and turned around. She apparently underestimated how far it was to Piper's door, and slammed hard into the door frame. She crouched down, clutching her hand which must have been caught between the door frame and her.
"Ow," Leo said, holding in the laughter. "Are you alright, Sunshine?"
"Yeah, I'm fine," she replied back. She lifted her hands. "I barely even-" She cut off when her eyes spotted the blood. The palm of one of her hands was red. Her hand must have scratched against the door frame, cutting it open. Her mouth fell open in shock.
"Here, I'll go get some stuff from below," he said slowly, picking himself up from off the ground.
She didn't look up at him, not telling him to hurry back. She just stared wide-eyed at her palm, that more blood was steadily coming out of.
He rushed out, now panicking. She was still staring at her hand, not acknowledging him at all.
She was freaking out way too much about a little blood, and it was terrifying Team Leo.
He slowly started backing away from her then turned around and sprinted down the small hallway, and down the stairs to the lower deck.
The sick bay was down on the bottom of the ship, near the bay doors. The area looked empty, without a forty-foot statue to climb around. Way too roomy.
He only thought about that for a split second. He dashed inside, grabbing some nectar, before running out again. Leo didn't know how much pain she had to be in to look like she did, so he wasn't going to waste precious time.
When he got back to the hallway, Calypso was still crouched on the floor, looking at her hand like it was the worst thing that had ever happened to her.
He reached for her hand, and that's when she looked at him. When she saw the items in his hand, she pulled hers away.
"You don't understand," she whispered.
Some relief came to Leo. He was glad she was still able to speak. And that she hadn't reverted back to Greek. Also a good sign. a good thing, since Leo is probably the only Greek demigod in the world that can't speak the language.
"What I understand," he said, pulling her hand back towards him, as gently as he possibly could, "is that you're in pain, and this is going to help you." He ignored the small amount of blood that smeared onto his own hands.
She yanked her hand away again. "Are you trying to kill me?"
Leo, stared at her blankly. Calypso was looking exasperated at him, like he should know what she was thinking. "No. . . what do you mean?"
Her eyes were wide, but Leo did not know with what. Fear? Shock? Annoyance that he wasn't comprehending? Maybe all three. "I mean that will probably kill me now." She took a big breath. "I-I told you the gods would not want me to leave that easily."
Leo stared at her face, uncomprehending. Is she blaming the god's for letting her hit that door frame? What god would say, "Oh, I know how to make her regret leaving! Shift the door over a few inches to make her feel the pain!"
His eyes lowered to her hand, which was still bleeding profusely. Red was starting to drip down on to the floorboards below them.
Red. . .
His mouth fell open in shock, like her's did before. Calypso nodded her head, confirming his fears.
"I told you. . ." she repeated, but other than that she seemed lost for words.
They both stared down at the red blood that was slowly pooling at their feet, Leo knowing that they were thinking the same thing. Something that he should have noticed as soon as her hand started bleeding. It had been a problem since the beginning anyway.
But Leo guessed it wasn't a problem anymore.
Because her blood should be gold.
Because her blood should have been the color of the immortals'.
