PostSubject: Bright and Early Morning ((Annalise))   August 25th 2010, 11:07 pm

As the morning sun was still behind the horizon, Astra Gahne was awake and had been awake for a little while. She was quite an early riser, there was too much to do in a day and too little time to wait until later. What time was it anyway? Astra knew how unreliable her watch was, she looked down at where it lay face up on the ground and groaned. Yep, she knew it. 00:19. That was the time. The demigod picked the worthless piece of electronics and made as if to hurl it out the flap of her tent. As Astra thought more about it, she realized there was no good reason not to throw it. But there was no good reason too, either. And perhaps someone could fix the time on it... maybe there was a Hephaestus or Athena kid in camp who knew how to do such a thing.

Hephaestus or Athena kid? How about just a demigod who knew how to do something, regardless of the stupid god who had sired them. Ruefully Astra mended her thoughts, okay maybe she was not stupid but worthless at best. Honestly, anyone should be able to fix the timepeice if they were a little bit adept at such things. Astra decided in that second that it was essential for a leader to be punctual, and while she was good at guessing the time it was probably better to have something more reliable to go by. The girl stood up and walked across the tent, pausing before she exited to pocket the watch.

Astra walked a little bit slowly but delibarately through her camp, where most everyone should be sleeping. Well, maybe not SHOULD be sleeping, but were. It was still dark out but for the glowing embers of the fire in the pit, which were unattended. How Astra would love to throw the sparks in the faces of all the gods, the demigods in the camp over the hll, and quite probably some of the demigods in her own camp. But she didn't, instead she simply paused to throw some wood onto the fire and poke it a bit. The mornings were getting slightly colder now that fall was almost here, and there was a dew on the grass that somehow made it seem colder. Astra sivered in spite of herself. The loose sweatshirt she was wearing offered little protection against the chill in the air, considering she had no idea how old it was and where it had come from. Probably some Goodwill someplace...

As the girl slowly brooded over the site, she wondered yet again about placing a movable forge for Heph... the children and teenagers who were good at smithing... to work with. That idea seemed incredebly far-fetched, though. She hoped that this wouldn't last for too much longer, although from what she could currently see it seemed that her seige (that was what she thought of it as) could go on indefinitely. But hopefully that wouldn't happen. Astra turned slowly away from the gradually warming fire, almost reluctantly. Ten, Astra seemed to see someone. But she couldn't tell, she couldn't really see. And besides, would any of her demigods be awake now? It seemed unlikely, so Astra wrapped her hand around the small scythe figurine that was Slayer in it's shrunken form and called out in a firm voice "Is someone there?"

Akilina Firesky gasped as some metal thing streaked across where she was walking, and emitted a loud honking noise. A fat unshaven man heckled her from the window he was closest to.
"You watch it!" she yelled back, shaking her fist. Oh Jesus, where the heck am I going?! she thought to herself, looking down at the dirty old map that freaky goat thing had been forced to give her.
She followed the large grey forest path (except she wasn't in a forest path; so it must've been what her "friends" had called a "road"), and was nearly flattened by a few of the mobile metal things. There are no stupid questions, just stupid people, she thought randomly to herself; wanting to ask someone what the heck the fast things were. Animals of some kind? Heck; if they were animals; Akilina was sure they were mutated ones.

After a while of walking aimlessly along the "road"; the scenery became less industrial and more natural. The Hill she was supposed to get to was looming into view, but Kill double checked the map just in case.
At the foot of the Hill, there was a large patch labelled "DO NOT GO HERE".
"Must be something worthwhile..." she muttered, before setting off in the forbidden direction. Akill was glad she did so too; minutes after passing the Hill she heard a roar and turned to see a shining blue dragon, baring it's teeth at her.

Before long, she came across several sites which seemed to be Camps; but nothing was around but khaki tents and their snoring inhabitant.
In one Camp however; she came across a burning, crackling fire; and a young-ish blonde girl sitting near it and calling out who was there.
"Kill," she said simply, hiding in the shadows.

An answer came back in a slightly tense but brief voice, and a strange answer at that. "Kill." the voice said. Kill, as in like, slay, destroy, take the life away from? What sort of a name as Kill? Astra knew that a lot of people thought she had a weird name... when she was running the streets she had even taken to calling herself her middle name, Olyvia, because people said 'Astra' was strange. It wasn't strange, it was Finnish like... but nobody in their right mind would name their child... daughter, from how the voice sounded... Kill. But not every parent was in their right mind if Astra's mom was any example. But there was no use thinking about her right now, Astra thought without so much as a little bit of pain at the thought of the woman... all that had been spent long ago.

For a second the demigod didn't say anything but looked at the fire and slowly thought of how to respond. If the person was one of her demigods they were certainly up early... for them... but if not they soon would be one of her demigods. "Very well then, Kill, why don't you just come out here?" Astra said, without betraying even a little anxiety. And why should she be anxious or afraid? She was armed, the person seemed like they were coming from the side of camp away from Half-Blood Hill which could mean that shey were new, and well, it wasn't part of Astra's nature to be afraid. But why was she even considering being afraid of the person in the shadows? They ought to be more afraid of her, right?

Then she thought that she saw a girl's figure in the shadows of the morning, and said quickly and thoughtlessly "The fire's warm." Her voice let out just a little bit of... something that sounded vaguely like longing; Astra wanted someone rather near her in the innermost parts of her being. Something of her missed being able to relate to people. But not that much. And now she convinced herself she just wanted to see what this girl was up to. Nothing more. She didn't feel anything, Astra needed to be the emotionless leader, and she was. Nothing more. The fire felt good.

((BLAH, it's SHORT!!! Sorry.))
