GAME NIGHT!! (Elodie)

Post by Guest on Tue Jan 06, 2015 9:20 pm

It wasn't often that one found a greek demigod wandering the streets of Camp Jupiter. The greeks and romans, even after their reconciliation, tended to stay out of the others respective camps. But..Akiko was trying to find someone to play games with. She had a massive bookbag full of games. She had Jenga, Connect Four, Checkers, Chess, Skip Bo, Go Fish, A Deck of Playing Cards, Monopoly, Life, and, to top it all off, and for a joke, Chinese Checkers. She was walking around the camp, asking nearly everyone she crossed paths with if they wanted to play games with her. She was consistently being turned down, and it was frustrating. So, after purchasing an apple from a vendor, she sat down on a bench, placing the bookbag on her back onto the bench, the slightly unzipped bag revealing the massive stack of games she had on loan from the big house. Nobody wanted to play anything with her, and she just wanted someone to play with, so she could at least make one friend. This in and of itself was her plan, and it was a little strange to anyone that looked at it, it made perfect sense in her head. So it was strange to her, all things considering. This was what was on her mind as she ate her apple.

This in and of itself was her plan, and it was a little strange to anyone that looked at it, it made perfect sense in her head. So it was strange to her, all things considering. This was what was on her mind as she ate her apple. If you looked at her, you would think she was just another face in the crowd, a roman demigod rather than a greek one who was running around Camp Jupiter in order to find someone to make friends with. She had heard that someone, of a familiar name to her, lived around here somewhere. She didn't remember why the name was familiar to her. It was strange. She felt like she should remember this girl, but she couldn't remember the girl, nor could she remember the name. When it entered her mind, it made her rack her brain and wonder. But, she decided to pick up and go to the barracks now. It was worth waiting for SOMEONE to show up so she could ambush them and force them to play games with her. It took about a half hour, but she managed to find her way to the strangely empty barracks of the Fourth Cohort, and sat down on the most well made bed, legs crossed and looking to the door.

Elodie was throwing a frisbee disk with Finn at three in the afternoon, it was fun just to relax in Camp Jupiter. She strangely found herself hanging around the camp even more, she hasn't been to the Greek camp since yesterday. As Finn sucessfully caught the disk in the air, Elodie cheered and clapped her hands as he ran over to her and placed the disk on the grass. He started panting and the girl started to feel bad for her companion, they have played games for a full hour. The southern girl smiled and picked up her puppy. Feeding him a dog treat, she decided that it was time to rest for the day.

The unclaimed Roman demigod started walking to the Fourth Cohort barracks with a content expression, she didn't want to admit but the small girl was still filled with a burst of energy. But she put Finn's feelings first, if he was tired then she was tired. She was starting to enjoy her time at camp, well both of the camps anyway. She almost forgot that she was a demigod, an unclaimed demigod at that. She didn't really care about being claimed or not, but she was curious as to who her mother or father was.

The young girl walked through the door of the Fourth Cohort barracks, she looked into one of her barrackmates mirrors and smiled at her reflection. She was a very plain looking girl with a rosy complexion, her auburn hair was not in her traidmark two braids but in one braid which slung over one shoulder. She was wearing the purple Camp Jupiter shirt with denim capri pants, her light brown eyes were bright and lively. She looked away from the mirror and walked over to her bed, finding that someone was sitting on it...

Now, Elodie hated when people started touching or sitting on her stuff, but this was probably a new camper. So she tried to be polite and set Finn down. Finn, who normally barked at strangers ignored the girl and drank from his water bowl. Elodie smoothed her dress and walked up to the stranger. "Hiya, that's my bed, there are unused beds over-" Wait a minute.. "Have we met?"

Yes! Someone had come in! So, as she took notice, Akiko stood up, getting up off the bed as she unzipped the bag, she started setting up connect four on the floor. When she was asked if they had met though, Akiko froze. She looked over her shoulder at the other woman. Thats when it clicked. "Oh my god..Elodie..is that you?" She asked as she stood up, smoothing out her white dress. She was certain that this was the same woman that hosted her when she first moved to america! It had to be! The voice matched..fairly closely to the girl she once knew. They had been friends once..even if things had ended on a sour note when she met her "father". She had gone with Akiko that day. That was the day she left, soon after just cutting her losses. She didn't want to remain in South Carolina anymore at that point, and so she had left. She left Elodie a note back then..she wondered if she got it. Oh well. Rather than just standing there and smiling like an idiot, she held her hand out to the other demigod. Kon'nichiwa, watashi wa Akikodesu." She said jokingly before giggling and repeating herself in english. Hi, I'm akiko. She said softly, holding her hand out for Elodie to shake if she so chose to.

She couldn't quite put her finger on it, but something about this woman reminded her of her old friend from South Carolina...what was her name...? Elona? No..Elodye? No....This was driving her crazy. If only she knew just how on the money her prediction was. This was in fact, Elodie from south carolina. She simply didn't remember her because of the fact that they last met literally four years ago, when she was spending some time as a foreign exchange student. Her stay with Elodie had been remarkably short..but dogs remembered everyone. And when Finn saw her, he barked happily and trotted over to her, causing her to smile, bend down, and pet him. It had been quite some time, but Finn remembered her, and made her remember them all the same.

The girl was someone she has talked to before, Elodie could have been jumping for joy. But this girl... "Nice to see that you're a half-blood too, Akiko." Her voice sounded like piercing daggers as she eyed the girl. The older girl was in the clique of girls who picked on Elodie and a few other outcast kids at the farm. Elodie remembered being really nice to this girl, only to be called 'annoying' and being ignored by her after finding out that her dad was a fake. Elodie folded her arms under her chest as the older girl petted Finn, who was happy to touch her.

"Don't you dare touch Finn!" She quickly scooped her puppy up, who was shaking at the tone in Elodie's voice. The small girl looked back up at Akiko. "What're you doing here anyway? I thought you were in Japan, I'd honestly have you there then here." Elodie was furious when the same girl that lowered her self esteem at a young age was in the same camp as she was...

Ah, so she didn't get the note. The moment she heard the tone in Elodie's voice, that was how she knew. It made her at least somewhat glad she had a copy of the note that she kept in the front pocket of the bag she had kept with her since she first left. When she asked her what she was doing at Camp Jupiter, Akiko smiled nervously and turned around, scooping up her bag from her bed, unzipping the front pocket. "First of all, I'm not a Roman Demigod..I've just been trying to find someone to play board games with..not really into the whole "Train with deadly weapons" deal that a lot of people prioritize." She said as she dug around in the front pocket for a bit, finally grabbing onto the note she had copied down so many years ago.

"Second of all...before we go any further in this conversation,you should read this. I'd left the original in your room before I left, but it seems that someone got rid of it before you could read it. Don't worry, it's nothing bad..just..something I felt I needed you to see on the off chance we ever met again." She said as she held the note out to Elodie. It was an apology. She explained everything. Why she suddenly became a horrible person to her, why she vanished, and most of all, it held the most important bit. A genuine apology. If she looked carefully, on the slightly yellowed paper..there were little dark spots. Tear stains. She had been crying when she wrote the two notes. She felt horrible at the time.

She hadn't meant to be so evil to her, but...everything she had been told was a lie, concocted by her mother. It could have been understandable that she wasn't exactly the most emotionally stable at the time. However, the note also had written down, in the plainest words possible, her one major flaw to her personality. She explained about her acceptance complex, and how it got worse when she was emotional. But, perhaps the most touching bit would be what Elodie wouldn't realize until she thought about it..Akiko had written it in such a way that it would be legible for people with dyslexia. Certain letters that switched around for demigods were already switched, other letters that were less common were preemptively switched as well. It didn't matter how bad her dyslexia was, Elodie would be able to read this, clear as day. Akiko wasn't a bad person. She was a good person, who was very easy to manipulate. It was unfortunate, but it was the hand she was dealt.

Despite being furious that Akiko was in the barracks with her, she gently took the folded note from her hands and places Finn on her bed so she could unfold it. After unfolding the paper, her brown eyes slowly scanned the note reading every word carefully. After a long three minutes (Her ADHD made her lose her place in reading) She looked up at Akiko then the note. The note was pretty genuine, it sounded like the Japanese was very apologetic plus the dried tear stains gave her enough proof but it also told Elodie that the acceptance complex was Akiko's hamartia.. Her fatal flaw, something that she would have to overcome soon before it kills her. Elodie hears from other demigods that fatal flaws have killed demigods when they got older, maybe the monsters weren't the ones that chased you around, the ones in your closet of under your bed, the real monster was the fatal flaw or fatal flaws. Seeing that Akiko's fatal flaw has been getting worst, she decided that she should help an old friend.

"I accept your apology, Akiko. I'm not going to say that you're using excuses," Elodie carefully folded the note and placed it on her dresser. "You have a fatal flaw, all demigods have them. These fatal flaws are hard to overcome and can kill you quicker than the monsters can, It's surprising that you've acknowledged your fatal flaw and that's the first step to overcoming it. I can help you if you'd let me..."

When Elodie accepted her apology, akiko's nervous smile turned into a bright grin. However, before she had a chance to spring forward and hug her old friend, the conversation took a dark turn. She told her about Fatal Flaws, the thing she learned about in school..oh god, those actually existed?!? That made her grin fade into a scared expression. She was terrified about having to deal with them. She didn't want to deal with it on her own..but she apparently didn't have to. Elodie's offer made her smile, and she quickly took a few steps forward, hugging the other girl tightly. She let go soon after, gesturing awkwardly to the game of connect four she had set up before talking to her. 'Wanna play? I didn't bring them here for nothing after all." She said with a nervous smile as the bookbag that held the rest of her games slipped from her grip, revealing every game that she had brought, which spilled out onto the floor. She had brought quite a few games, all of which she wanted to play. And now that they had reconciled, she might have someone who was willing to play with her..today was going to be fun.

After telling Akiko about faral flaws being the real monster, the small demigod expected Akiko to tell her that she was wrong but something unpredictable happened. Akiko sprung forward and wrapped her arms around the small demigod, as she tightened her arms around Elodie, the girl was stunned. She had never had close contact with another human.. The feeling of a hug was nice, no one has ever really touched her, except for the farmers she called parents who would pat her back for working real hard on milking the cow or leading the horses gently but a hug? That was rare... Either way, the human contact felt nice that it made a tear fall from her cheek. To be so close to another human was a huge step to actually having a friend...

When she was about to hug Akiko back, the older girl quickly stepped back and asked to play a game. Elodie quickly brushed the tear away with her thumb and smiled, "Heh, of course," she said as the girl spilled many board games on the floor. Elodie's eyes widened in mere surprise, where did the older girl get all these board games. Either way, Elodie quickly sat on the floor and crossed her legs examining all of the games that lie before her. "Hmm, how about this one," she picked up a box that had two excited mortal kids on the cover with 'Connect Four' sprawled on the top.

When Elodie picked out Connect Four, Akiko grinned and nodded, taking the box from her and setting it up in a few minutes. She then held out the two bags of colored pieces. "Red or yellow?" She asked with a smile. She was glad that Elodie had accepted her apology, and she could tell that the girl was very much happy about the hug she was given. Akiko could imagine why..after all, she'd grown up as a victim of bullying. She probably didn't get much physical contact either, what with growing up on a farm. She really did feel for the girl. The only physical contact she had gotten from any human back in japan was when she was out and about at one of the few conventions that she could go to, which were very few and far between. So, she could certainly relate with the girl. It was hard living a life disconnected from other humans.

But, if Akiko had any choice in the matter, she would not have to deal with that any more. She was an old friend. She went with her, and was nice to her even with everything that she had put Elodie through. The girl was a good friend to have, even if she did have problems of her own. She was a friend that Akiko was grateful to have. After Elodie picked one of the bags, she would hand the bag of choice over to the girl, opening her own and placing her first piece in the fourth row, dropping it down into the very middle of the board. This was how the game began. It was going to be interesting to see Elodie's skill at strategy. After all, it might not look it, but Connect Four was very much a strategy based game. Hopefully she could win, but she would be proud of Elodie if she managed to beat her.

"Yellow," Elodie replied as she took the bag full of yellow pieces from the older girl. As she tore the plastic bag, she watched as Akiko opened hers. It was hard to find out a way to help a girl overcome her fatal flaw before it killed her, especially when Elodie had her own fatal flaws to deal with. She didn't care about her fatal flaw or flaws, she would rather help Akiko's severe need for acceptance since it was much more fatal and Akiko was was older than her, as she placed yellow pieces neatly on the floor she was still thinking of a way to help her, maybe some kind of trial or test? This was going to be tough..

Akiko started first, she placed her piece in the fourth row of the abacus looking set, that was when Elodie started to feel very insecure. "A strategic game...? Hehe, I ain't a strategic kind of gal..." She said nervously as Finn junped off of the bed and sat right next to Elodie, observing the game while sniffing the yellow piece his owner was holding. The small demigod quickly placed the yellow piece right on top of Akiko's red piece, blocking the red piece. She looked at Akiko, awaiting the next move.

When Elodie blocked off her red piece, Akiko simply smiled and shrugged. The board was a good Three Dimensional thing. So, rather than moping about her blocking the most obvious path, she simply placed her next piece in the row to the left, the third row. She watched as it made its satisfying slide down the row, clacking into place at the bottom. She then reached over to Elodie's side and petted finn's head. "Your move~"  she said in a sort of sing-song tone. She liked playing connect four. It was a simple strategy game, one that any kid could play easily, and one that anyone of at least a respectable amount of intelligence could just pick up and go on.

She realized a pattern in her games...she brought a LOT of strategy games. It was weird, she thought she had grabbed at least one game that was just for fun. But, thinking about it..she didn't. It was strange. What, did they not keep any non strategic games in the big house? The more she thought about it, the more weirded out she was by it. But, whatever. It was still fun. She watched as she waited for Elodie to make her own move.

Elodie grinned when Akiko put her piece in the next spot, this made her quickly pick up her yellow piece and looked around for any available spots, she would then slip the piece right on top of Akiko's second piece in the row on the left, this was starting to become very simple,. Just like tic tac toe! Finn rolled over on his back, holding up his paw when Akiko petted his head, he started to remember her belly rubs. "Hehe, silly Finn!" She exclaimed as she waited for Akiko.

Now normally, someone would change up their strategy when they were playing the game like this. It was obvious that Elodie was going to keep stacking her pieces on top of hers. And that was fine. If she was going to keep doing that, to keep her from going in one direction, she was okay with that. The only thing that would really throw a wrench in her plans would be if she started putting pieces in empty rows next to either of hers. But, for now she was going to stick with her simple strategy. She put another piece in an empty row. The second row over this time. Now she had three pieces next to each other, and now she was scratching finns chin. Not in a malicious way, but in the way that was enjoyable for dogs. As she did this, she looked up to elodie and grinned. "Things are getting dangerous now~" She sang with a bit of a giggle as she flipped another piece in between each of her fingers like a coin. Your move~ She cooed softly as she grinned at Elodie. She trusted the girl to recognize her strategy. At this point, it was time to change tactics. She'd let Elodie block her off from making a move with her three pieces. She had plenty of time to figure out a new way to do this.

Elodie bit her lower lip as she picked up her yellow piece off the ground and twirled it between her fingers, Akiko was playing dirty.. The thought of that brung a smirk upon her lips, Akiko had three pieces in a row now but Elodie wasn't that stupid. She slowly brung her arm over the play set and hovered over to the empty row where Akiko had put her third piece and pretended as if to slip it on top of hers, then she stopped.. "Jinx." she said as she moved her arm to the next empty row, watching as the yellow piece slid right next to the third red piece in satisfaction. This was starting to become fun...

When Elodie blocked off her piece, Akiko simply smiled and did the same, putting her next piece right over the top of the piece she had used to block off her three red pieces. Now Elodie had two pieces blocked off, whereas Akiko herself had three. This was actually really fun. She looked at the board as she tried to think. Elodie's pieces were positioned in a way that because of her piece, there was no way for her to set a connect four on the top. But her pieces were also in the same position.

Elodie was likely going to see that one other side was free to make that line of four. She was preparing herself for that inevitability. She had a plan now..it was just a matter of working it now. So, as she got done looking, she smiled up at Elodie. Your Move. She said with a grin. She was really having fun. This was something she wished she would have done before everything in her mortal life went Pear shaped. If she had known how fun this was, she would have made her mother buy her this game before. Sure, she knew how to play, thanks to all the electronic versions of these games. The only one she genuinely didn't know was jenga, but that was a matter of logic. It was okay. She could play all of these if she tried.

Wow, it was going to take a long time to finish this game! The small demigod didn't want to admit it, but she was starting to become a little impatient, for once she just wanted to win something but due to feeling inferior to Akiko's strategy and her overwhelming self doubt she just didn't have the willpower to even try and win the game. The young demigod noticed that her shoulders were starting to tense up at the thought of losing, she took a deep breath and lowered her shoulders. She picked up the yellow piece once more from the floor and twirled it around her fingers.

Elodie wanted to talk more to Akiko while playing the strategic game, "So, have you been claimed yet, miss?" She asked the older girl as she slid her piece right on top of her piece that was on the fourth row.

Yep, Elodie was a smart one. She had just blocked off her other avenue to get a line of four. But, Akiko wasn't dumb either. So, sliding her piece into the same place as Elodie's last one, she blocked off the other girl's chance to use her pieces to set up a line. However, she also realized that she could set herself up for victory in just a few moves if she was clever enough. But, when she got ready to look up to Elodie to tell her it was her move again, she was asked if she had been claimed. She shook her head in response to this question. "Nope. Not yet. I did just get to camp a few days ago after all. But, I have had a bit of fun before I found your guys's section of camp. I know that greeks and romans don't really blend that much, even if we don't hate each other anymore, but nobody on my side of camp wanted to play board games. But, on the subject of claiming. Nope, not yet. I'm curious to see who my real father was though." She said with a soft smile as she looked up to Elodie. Your move again, and what about you? Have you been claimed yet? She asked with a smile.

Looking at her, she figured that the younger girl had been claimed. After all, she looked really at home here. Like she'd been around for longer than a few weeks. After all, she hadn't seen her in years. It was very likely that she had been claimed. And, in all honesty, if she knew anything about roman gods, she would likely have had a few ideas about which one had claimed her. But, she knew nothing about roman gods or goddesses, so she was excited to see if she had been claimed or not yet. It was really exciting trying to figure out who her parent was in all honesty. She knew about all the greek gods, thanks to the cabins. She'd asked around and learned a bit..but she still had no idea at all which god was her parent. It was frustrating, but she would just wait it out really.

Once Akiko made her move, it was obvious that she was going to win.. It seemed like racial bias since Akiko was.. Well.. "Wow, congratulations Akiko!" The small demigod congratulated the older girl as Finn rolled back on her legs, looking as if he was glad that the game was over so his owner could pay more attention to him. The canine ran into the playset and headbutted it on purpose, Elodie shrieked when it fell into her lap all the pieces sliding out of their respective places onto her dress. Elodie looked up at Finn, "Finn! Bad! Bad Dog!" she scolded him, he looked at her with his sad puppy eyes and whined while running over to Akiko trying to hide into her lap.

Elodie blew her bangs and put the broken plaset into the box, "I'm sorry about Finn, he's a little attention seeker.." She apologized as she placed the pieces in the bags for Akiko. "Dear Akiko, I've been unclaimed for two years. Seen friends get claimed, get their claiming gifts, and pass away.. To be honest, it's my fault that they're dead and I guess that's why my mama or papa is just plain embarrassed to claim their little gal. I've hated myself for not being claimed but now I'm over it, I'll never be claimed, I don't care anymore..." She tore her eyes away from Akiko's when she felt tears welling up in her eyes. She wanted to change the subject, "So, what would you like to play?"

When Finn broke the connect four game, Akiko's eyes widened. She'd borrowed that from the big house!! She did NOT want to explain to Chiron or Dionysus how the game had been broken! Well..more Dionysus than Chiron..she'd heard of how angry he got, and how fickle he was towards the campers in general. And when Finn tried to squirm his way into her lap, she gently pushed him off, giving him nearly a death glare. She had to explain how she broke the connect four game because of this. But, when Elodie started explaining how she had been unclaimed for two years, and how she explained why she thought that she was unclaimed, akiko scooted forward and pulled Elodie into a very tight hug. She knew that Elodie would likely want to change the subject, but she wasn't going to let that happen.

"Elodie, I might not know much about mythology..but I know enough to know that the gods won't just abandon their child for making mistakes. Unlike them, we're still somewhat mortal. We may have their blood, but we also have mortal blood. After all, we can still be harmed by mortal weapons, can't we? She said with a soft smile. She didn't know if this would cheer her up, but she was very much willing to try to cheer her up.

Elodie didn't want to hear it, she had already expressed her feelings about her godly parent. She quickly hugged the older girl, Akiko's words about abandonment just flew out of the other ear. Akiko knew nothing about her being weak, being bullied by the demigods she had called friends... Maybe Elodie meant to leave them, maybe she wanted them to die...

The girl shook those dark thoughts out of her head amd nodded, pretending as if she heard the Greek demigod, "I guess you'reright, Akiko," The young girl quickly picked up the cylinder Jenga box and gave it to her, "Let's play this one!”

When Elodie finally seemed to perk up, Akiko smiled softly and nodded, taking the container from Elodie before opening it, dumping the contents onto the barracks floor. She then proceeded to carefully set up the tower, three blocks on their long sides, then three more blocks facing the left. She did this until all fifty two blocks were made into a tower. Okay, so the rules of Jenga are simple. During your turn, you can take a block from ANY level of the tower, except the top level if it isn't complete, and you place it on the top. You can tap a block to check if its loose or not, and if it is, I'd advise you take it.

You only get ten seconds for your turn if you haven't touched a block. Basically then its just rinse and repeat. We go until one of us makes the tower fall. That person is the loser. I'll start the game.
She said with a smile as she tapped the middle block of the bottom row, doing this several times to push it out before she took it, placing it on top of the tower with a smile. See? Simple. Your turn. She said as she watched Elodie, waiting to see what her next move would be.

Elodie was glad that those demonic thoughts were gone, she knew that it wasn't Akiko's fault for bringing back bad memories. The small demigod tucked her knees from underneath her and focused on the tower. It didn't exactly look as simple as the older girl has said it was, she was glad that Finn was starting to quiet down, she slipped her hand into her dress pocket and pulled out a piece of beef jerky, feeding it to Finn as a treat. Oh how much she hated those things, she just hated meat in general.

“So, Akiko, how was Japan? I mean, right after you left the farm..” Elodie asked as she carefully took out a loose block from the end of the tower, in the middle, She sucessfully placed it on top of the tower, awaiting Akiko's turn and reply.

When Elodie performed a similar maneuver to create the second block of the top row, Akiko grinned. She was quick to learn. And as she was asked her question, Akiko gave her a nervous smile as she took a block from the row directly beneath the one Elodie had removed hers from, placing it atop the top row to complete it. Well...when I went back...everyone started to get distant..my mother and I were constantly arguing..it wasn't very good. I ended up taking a Muay Thai class, and some kendo classes. But, you know how us Demigods are..my rampant ADHD made it nearly impossible to focus enough to truly learn from either class. The teachers there both ended up dropping me from their classes.

As she told Elodie the fairly bad time she had in terms of how her trip to japan was, She simply frowned softly. It wasn't exactly a great return..she knew that. It was pretty bad, and when she got there, she finally started realizing how bad Elodie's own life must have been. It was partially what made her into the person she was now. She tried her hardest to be nice to everyone, and that was obvious. It was also clear that she didn't quite want to reminisce about the terrible return she was subjected to either. As she simply gestured for Elodie to make her move as she finished talking.

Elodie frowned when Akiko told her that her trip back to Japan turned out horribly, it wasn't what the young girl had expected. But what she did know was that the three popular girls at the farm that tortured Elodie relentlessly had stopped talking to Akiko and didn't acknowledge the fact that Akiko didn't exist right after they saw her talking to an awkward young Elodie. The small demigod knew how rejection felt, but knowing that Akiko had an acceptance complex it must have been terribly hard on her...

"Oh, I'm really sorry to hear that Akiko,” She would say, snapping out of her thoughts as she lightly poked a block on the bottom. She sighed when the tower started to wobble a bit, seeing that the block was unavailable she moved on to find another one, "It's reasonable that you wanted to move back, you felt like you weren't accepted when the girls saw you talkin' to me. And why were you and your mother arguin'?” Elodie finally found a lose block right in the middle, she managed to wiggle it out, smiling at her sucess she placed the block on the top. She petted Finn's head, waiting for Akiko.
