Coming out of hiding ((Izzy))

Post by Ronnie Riley on Wed Feb 22, 2017 3:10 pm

This year, the weather was warming up faster than it typically did at the end of winter in New England. The other campers seemed to be enjoying it, but Ronnie knew that this shouldn’t be the case, that it was off, and it reflected how she was feeling. After going to community college for the past three semesters, it felt off to just be a camper for the semester. There was a lot that she had to take care of at the camp, both internally and externally. She had to consider her position as Augur more seriously for the time being. Personally, she had quite a bit to sort out too. Saar was starting to want to take things more seriously ever since she returned from school and made it clear that she was sticking around for the semester. And, well, she wasn’t convinced that she wanted the same thing. Additionally, she had lost touch with a lot of the people who used to be a big part of her life at camp. Even though she had only been gone for school and her job, she felt like she had lost touch with a lot of what was going on at camp in general, and as Augur, she couldn’t very well allow that to continue.

There were many people that she got along with around camp, but for every one of those, there was one new person and three people she had never spoken to. So, after pouring herself into her work for a few days, she decided she was going to spend the next few days doing her more normal camper duties and talking to those people more. They were all sharing this space together, why not get to know them better?

After spending an hour on the training fields, Ronnie’s limbs felt like they had been reduced to jello. She knew she was going to be sore tomorrow. The daughter of Janus was still in good shape, but nowhere near what she used to be when she lived at camp year-round. Today, she had made the mistake of trying to practice like she was still there. This mistake would manifest itself in very very sore muscles on the following morning. After a short cool-down, the woman headed back to her barracks, showered, then fell onto her bed, considering if she would let herself get away with a long nap. Once she began fiddling with her alarm clock, the front door opened to reveal Izzy, one of the more eccentric members of her cohort (well, she at least thought that). ”Hey Izzy! How’s your day going?” The Augur expected a short reply, or some sort of comment about the weather, but she wouldn’t mind talking more with him. In fact, she realized that they had a lot to catch up on. So she decided she’d ask more, but she was unsure where to go or where to start. Uncertainty in social situations was rare for Ronnie, so this took her aback. It made her realize in full how antisocial she had been without noticing. The woman knew her mind functioned in different ways than her peers, but this still really surprised her.

Despite the chill of the day, Izzy had been out since finishing breakfast.  It was one of those days where he had a lot to think about.  Those types of days were coming more and more since Reiko had brought him info on his mortal mother.  For so long, Izzy had so many questions about his mother...more than ever after his claiming by Mercury.  The God's appearance all that time ago had answered a lot of questions...and brought a million more up.  Izzy was introspective at the best of times, though he was getting damn good at letting things roll off his back.  This was different...the son of Mercury just couldn't let this go.  Reiko had found him a lot of info on the mortal woman Izzati Shahril...and yet the Brit craved for more.  This was what he had right now though, and he had to take the time to come to terms with it all.

So Izzy wandered.  He got lost in the woods until he was ready to face people.  As well he was doing with social things, after many years of not doing well with social things, sometimes the man just needed to be alone.  It wasn't a bad thing, but it made Izzy feel a bit isolated at times.  He was pretty sure that all demigods felt that way at times, though.  There was nothing easy about life as a demigod...and all of them knew that, even if it was mostly unspoken.  The woods were one of Izzy's favorite places to go at camp, which was a bit strange.  The man had never been much of a nature person.  He loved the city...the hustle and bustle, the chaos, the smoky air and sidewalks congested with people.  All of it.  Having grown up in London and given the freedom to explore it on his own, Izzy had never given "nature" much thought.

It had been some time since Izzy had left the barrack.  He wasn't exactly sure how long, as he had left his watch on his bedside table.  The sun was much higher in the sky...and the man thought he had probably missed lunch.  That meant he ought to head back and find some real food.  Granola bars and fruit were all well and good for snacks, but not actual meals.  Turning around, Izzy found the main path back to camp...he hadn't strayed too far today.  Recently, the man had admitted to himself that he shouldn't go too far off the path until he got a compass.  It was a trip to New Rome he had yet to take...as much as he knew he needed to do so to venture further and further away.

There weren't a ton of demigods out and about at the moment...what time was it, anyway?  Izzy figured his first order of business should be to go back to his barrack and get his watch.  He hated not having it on...it was so rare he forgot it.  Though he wasn't sure what the plan after getting his watch was...probably go to the kitchens to find some food.  That was why the son of Mercury had headed back to camp in the first place.  Maybe he'd run into someone along the way.  He'd been feeling a bit lonely recently, and he certainly wouldn't mind a friendly face.  One of the nice things about camp was that there was always someone there when they were needed.  It was something majorly different from Izzy's experiences in the mortal world...and something the man absolutely loved.  He had no friends in the mortal world.  Not after Leanne turned her back on him in a time of need.  Which, in the end, was one of the things that couldn't be more different here.

Pushing open the door to the Fourth Cohort barrack, Izzy thought he was alone...until he heard someone call out.  "Ronnie!" he called excitedly.  He hadn't seen the woman in ages, and he had missed her.  The two had started on their way to a good friendship, and Izzy had always thought she was great.  "It's good to see you!" and it was.  Of course...he should have known he'd find someone that special when he was hoping for a friendly face.  The man headed back to his friend's bunk.  "My day has been great...better now," he ended half teasingly.  The man had so many questions for his friend...but didn't want to overwhelm her with it all.  "And how are you doing, Ronnie?" that was nice and simple.  "I was going to go find some lunch...if it's time.  I lost track when I was in the woods.  Want to join?"
