He didn't like gymnasiums; specifically gymnasiums set up for dances. A scowl on his young face, Nico sat on the bleachers shuffling through his mythomagic cards. When he came to a particular creature he paused and a brief smile lit up his face before it turned a bit sad and nostalgic. The picture depicted on the card was the three headed cerberus. Nico had had a chance to meet a real cerberus, even become friends with it. That had been a few months ago though back when he and his sister were staying at the hotel in Nevada before their family lawyer came and brought them to this place. Nico hated it here. It was all military and uniforms and drills and getting up early. And there were creepy people here. They sort of reminded him of glimpses he'd gotten of people in Washington, D.C.

Sighing, he shuffled his card some more and wanted January to hurry up. The cerberus said he'd come visit him on his birthday. That was a whole month away! And what if he couldn't find him all the way over here? Whenever the cerberus came to visit and took him to play, it had been while he and Bianca had lived at the casino. It had been a very awesome summer! He learned how to do something that was called shadow travel. Bianca hadn't believed him and didn't want him to try and prove it to her. So he'd sulked and didn't say anything about it again. She hadn't believed he'd had a puppy visit him either. It hadn't helped that every time he saw the dog, it seemed to get bigger.

Scuffing the toe of his boot against the polished gym floor, he looked up when a shadow loomed over him. It was the vice principle. The man gave Nico the shivers. It was like the man was always watching him, analyzing him, and waiting. That was one reason that he stuck close to his sister. She always protected him and knew what to do. This time though, she had gone to the bathroom leaving him alone.

"Hey!" he yelped when the man's hand descended on his shoulder and grabbed him by the collar of his black long sleeve shirt. The movement had caused him to drop his cards as he was dragged out of the gym and into the hall.

"Let's go find your sister, shall we?" The man asked in that weird tone he had when he talked.

"Lemme, go!" Nico tried to kick the teacher in the shin but jerked off balance and nearly fell and choked himself because the man still had hold of his shirt near his collar. "Awk!"

Busy trying to not choke himself and desperate to try and do something he did the only thing he could think of. He attempted to shadow travel. Unfortunately he wasn't concentrating properly and never had tagged alone with anyone but the cerberus. The next thing Nico knew was that they were in the snow outside the school. Both teacher and student were temporarily in shock but the man recovered before the boy. There was elation and triumph in the man's expression that Nico didn't like. Busy tugging at his shirt trying to get away, kicking and flailing he failed to notice they weren't alone anymore.

When Alexei had received the quest from Ares he had been very shocked and weary of what the God wanted, after all, fetching Lord Hades' kids to bring them to Camp Half-Blood wasn't going to be an easy task, considering that with them being Children of the Big Three, Alexei would have to be more careful about where they went and how he fought. It wouldn't be easy but he was going to make sure that the two children got to camp without any problems.

The quest, he was sure, would be a headache and a half so he had decided to go on his own, not wanting to risk any other demi-god on a quest that would, and could, quite possibly end up potentially dangerous with two children of Hades there. As children of Hades, Nico and Bianca Di Angelo were tasty food for the monsters out in the world and travelling with the two of them would bring danger to Alexei as well and he had no want or need to bring newbie demi-gods who could get killed at thinking they were invincible.

Making his way to Maine hadn't been hard especially since he had gotten all the particulars of the quest that informed him that the two children were in the school there. When he got there, he had been glad that he got there that quickly as the only thing he saw was the young child, a boy no older than ten or even eleven, being manhandled by an older looking man who was looking very elated for some reason but Alexei didn't care for that, the only thing he cared for was the child trying to get away from the bigger and clearly stronger male.

"I would let him go if I were you," Alexei said coldly as he stood behind the man, a dagger in Alexei's hand as he held it to the man's neck, his eyes flashing in anger before he focused on the young boy. "Are you okay Nico?"

It had been awhile since he had last shadow traveled because each time he had done so, it had left him tired. This time had been no different but he knew that he had to fight but then he registered the sound of another voice and his struggles ceased as he looked beyond his captor. He stared, his angry and scared gaze fixed on the man and his –bronze?- blade at the teacher’s throat. The creepy thing that made Nico’s voice freeze in his throat and stark terror to course through him was that the blade didn’t seem to faze the man. In fact, the man’s eyes lit up with a hunger as he inhaled deeply, the mouth stretching into a cruel smile.

“Do you really want to do that, demigod?” The teacher’s form seemed to blur and shift for a moment and suddenly SCHHWAFF- something whizzed by and grazed Nico’s cheek causing the boy to let out a sound of both surprise and pain. There was something hovering behind the teacher’s shoulder that he couldn’t quite see. “The next one won’t graze him and I would much rather have him alive.”

Nico’s heart pounded in his chest as he began to feel woozy and slumped a little in the tight grip on his shirt. What had cut him was a spike and the boy was very much scared. If Cerberuses were real and other things he’d seen that were on his cards, this teacher must have been a monster! He tried to wrack his mind what could shoot spikes but his mind went blank as he screamed in pain clutching the cut on his cheek.

“That would be the poison.” The teacher-monster stated in a sadistic tone.

There was something with the man that just made Alexei's blood boil in anger, his eyes slitting and his teeth bared, a barely-seen breeze ruffling his clothes and hair as he watched something hit Nico, the stench of poison filling his nostrils before the bronze blade in his hand suddenly struck itself in the man's collarbone, his other hand shooting out to grasp a hold of the hand that was holding Nico and he twisted it, smirking in delight at feeling of bones grinding against each other.

"Would you please let Nico go?" Alexei said with a pleasing tone of voice, though the look on his face was anything but pleasant as small sparks of lighting started to appear in random intervals around him, the breeze suddenly picking up the more he watched the man hold Nico. "I really don't want to get violent but I will if I have to."

He was quite sure the man wouldn't listen which was why he had another dagger in his hand, this one poised at the man's heart, the bronze tip digging into the skin. The scream from Nico made Alexei flinch and he cursed himself for not being quick enough to stop the spike that had hit the boy, unfortunately, though he doubted that he'd be able to get any quick help for Nico anytime soon. Maybe he should've brought one of the Apollo kids with him?

The manticore snarled and shifted its form completely losing the appearance of a human after the bronze blade dug into his pelt. The suit it had been wearing burst unable to contain its monstrous form inside the clothing. His face stayed humanoid, but the mouth chanted to that of a predatory carnivorous animal. The human body contorted and became that of a lion while its tail was fully that of a very large scorpion.
Showing its sharp incisors the monster’s answer to the other’s plea was obvious as its mouth closed around the demigod’s arm that held the weapon at its throat. One paw threw the younger demigod since there wasn’t any worry that the incapacitated boy would escape. It wasn’t worried if the boy died as there was another one in the school that could be just as useful. The scorpion tail whipped out and tried to strike the older demigod in the back.

“To think I found three children of the elder gods,” the manticore laughed cruelly jumping away from the demigod after he’d released the arm from his maw. “My master will reward me handsomely.”

Alexei jumped back from the monster way before the human form disappeared to reveal the monstrous form of a Manticore; a monster that Alexei had more than once seen on quests and just in the forests in general, he even remembered seeing one when he was younger as it tried to kill him.

The moment the sharp incisors bit down on his arm, Alexei used his other hand to pull out his third, and last dagger, out its holster on his back and he stuck it into the other's back, wincing as the sharp teeth were pulled away from his tender flesh, leaving deep bite marks though he paid it no attention, there was no need for him to worry at the moment he wouldn't die just yet.

"...What?" The brunette blinked his eyes at those words but decided to push them away from his mind, he'd figure it out later, when he wasn't fighting for his life and the two children of Hades. It wouldn't do if either Nico or Bianca died on his watch and he wasn't about to fail this quest in any form.

A tiny voice in the back of his head was telling him to use the lightning that was flickering around his body and without even thinking about it, Alexei tossed a lighting bolt towards the Manticore, his eyes widening at the sparks flying in the space between him and the Manticore, watching as said lightning bolt hit the Manticore.

What... the hell?! He didn't remember ever doing that before!

Konan was traveling with Alexei on his quest. Sometimes taking his full cerberus form. He was very excited to be able to help Alexei. More so when he learned the quest was to retrieve his little Nico Nico. This made him very, very happy and excited. They had made good time and distance. His rubbing his scent all over the other. Running around in his puppy form the closer they got. Yipping before shifting to his human form and then back to his puppy form. -So excited! A quest with my mate and not only that we're saving nico nico. Nico and his sister. Yay! I am so happy and excited.- The other stated with all three hands yipping. Tails wagging and form traveling with Alexei.

Small skip to the current time

His excitement would be short lived because his senses went crazy. They arrived at their destination and he took off. Howling and growling as he took down a hidden smaller monster that was eyeing the vunerable form of Nico di Angelo. Growling and tried to warn Alexei but everything happened so fast. He went from super happy to super angry. All three heads let out this eerie and bone chilling howl as the smell of brimstone, sulfur and hellfire filled the area. Sulfur filling the area and Konan's primal beast instincts smothered Konan. His Cerberus genetics were in full blown mode. When the smoke cleared....all the two demi-gods would see was thisdark fur blur.

There was a trail of burned ground as the red eyed and raging cerberus hound (puppy) that was Konan was livid. This Manticore DARED attack BOTH his boys?! "Big Mistake" (Konan) "You." (left head) "Will" (right head) "DIE!!!" (three heads in unison) Even as they rushed there was the noticeable feeling of death in the air. The lightning strike startling Konan as the yelp left but anger was a stronger force. "YOU HURT OUR DEMI-GODS AND AIMED TO EAT THEM! FOR THIS WE SHALL SEND YOU TO THE DEPTHS OF THE UNDERREALM!!!" They shouted in synchronization. The three headed hound launched into the manticore and landed. tails moving like weapons as the headed tail bit in and the three heads began tearing into the manticore even as they were stung and knocked off. The large (but still small compared to his father) form of Konan began to fight with and tear into the Manticore. It wasn't dead yet but it was badly injured.

Howling as the middle head looked at Alexei. -Get Nico. I got this. We'll get Bianca. You need antidote. Konan will protect and carry you all- He said through their bond link and was soon struck on the face and whined. That stung! That stung! It angered him more! Launching at the manticore aggressively. He would take it down...

(((OOC Note: Cut off to allow the manticore and nico and alexei all a chance to react before the finishing blows hit Razz )))

Shivering in the cold, Nico sat up from where he'd been flung, his body aching and the right side of his face burning from the cut he'd received. A soggy shirtsleeve was pressed against the wound as he tried to stay conscious. Unsure if his mind was playing tricks or not, the boy's eyes which had been near shut from pain and were very wet, he'd seen the lightning that hit the monster. His vision blurred when he saw a massive black form and a familiar voice that wasn't familiar at the same time. The words were muffled and all he was able to make out was a howl before he lost the battle and dropped to the snow again this time unconscious. If he'd been awake he would have seen something he'd never seen before.

The manticore hadn't anticipated the cerberus. Nor had it known that the demigod would be able to summon lightning! The blast caused the monster to shriek as hole was blasted in it. The cerberus' rage filled attack wasn't something he could shake off nor fight and had already been dissolving when it had hit. There was confusion along with the pain because the cerberus wasn't supposed to be here but in the Underworld guarding the gates. The manticore snarled and swore vengeance when it was able to reform. For now it allowed itself to turn to dust and yellow vapor as his essence went down to the Underworld.

Alexei had known that Konan had been following him, it had been impossible to not feel the Cerberus who was also his mate, just trailing behind him but not actually getting in his way. He hadn't minded, the Cerberus was a welcome companion to all of this, especially since it meant that he would be able to get Nico away and into safety along with Bianca, the elder sister of the youngest Di Angelo.

Nodding his head at Konan's order, the demi-god went over to Nico, grimacing as he watched the would seep poison, he'd seriously have to get Nico to camp and to the Apollo cabin, hopefully, Adrian would be there to help him save the youngest son of Hades. The Apollo demi-god wasn't exactly friendly but he and Alexei had a tentative friendship going on.

"I'm so sorry Nico." He whispered softly as he gingerly picked the half-blood up and cradled the young child towards his chest as he stepped further away to watch Konan battle it out with the Manticore though there pretty much didn't seem to be much left of the monster after Alexei had literally fried him with the lightning, which he still wasn't too sure about. He had no idea where it came from.

(I swore this was posted to already. its not as great as the originals but I quickly put a new one together)



Konan sent the manticore down and ensured this specific manticore would never respawn anywhere. He wiped his faces and paws in the cold ground. Seeing Alexei nodding his head he focused on taking out the second monster that arrived to see what was taking the original one so long.Fiercely attacking before taking it out. For a second he poofed back into his small form. Landing with a soft ploof sound in the soft stuff around them. After a minute returning to the bigger form and ran over to where Nico and Alexei were. Rushing over as the left head and right head worked together to relocate Alexei and Nico onto his back. The middle head turning and licked both boys injuries. Nuzzling both and whining. He waited for Alexei's instructions. What happened? Why did Nico Nico go still?

Had Alexei been a bit quicker then maybe Nico wouldn't be in such pain but then again maybe he would've been worse off; there was no need to actually think of the maybe's though, what happened had happened and Alexei needed to get Nico to safety behind the camp barrier.

Just as he was leaning down to pick up Nico, that's when a bag wrapped around his neck came into his view and he cursed himself for forgetting; damn it, why did he forget that he had some Ambrosia on him all this time? Quickly opening the bag, he pulled a small plastic bottle out of it and eyed the nectar inside it.

Uncorking it, Alexei placed one hand under Nico's head and pulled him to sit up just a tiny bit as he started pouring some of the nectar down Nico's throat. "Come on Nico, swallow it." He ushered the child as he rubbed his throat, urging the unconscious demigod to swallow the healing drink.

Watching with baited breath, Alexei let out a sigh of relief as Nico finally swallowed the nectar; it would slowly start to heal the young demigod and hopefully, it would be enough until they got to the camp.

"Konan, we need to fetch Bianca and then we need to head back to Camp. We're ahead of schedule but I'd rather be behind camp barriers with Nico to get him treated then get caught unaware again." He told the Cereberus softly, leaning down to nuzzle his face in the Cerberus' fur.

((OOC: Was told to skip him. so here is post 3.0 LOL))



Konan's tail wagged a bit as he realized they won and easily so. Yipping as he ran over to the two of them and yoinked them up and onto his back. Licking them both with two of his heads with a soft whine leaving his lips. Looking over his shoulder with his middle head, Konan's, and looking at Nico. Then Alexei. Both seemed hurt though they could have been worse off. Alexei had let forth some sort of lightning. That was from Alexei he was sure of it. SInce Nico was Hades boy and his boy. His halfling owner like Ares and hades and persephone were his owners. Mostly the first and last of the forementioned deities.

Eyes filled with concern as he watched Alexei pull out some sort of nectar. Were they alright? He watched as Alexei uncorked the nectar and poured it down his throat. Coasxing the others system to swallow it since he was unconsciosu. A whine leaving until he heard the sigh of relief indicating Nico had swallowed it. All three heads let out a howl of agreement before turning to face ahead. Bounding off without further word. The guardian of the gates of hell or the hound of hades creation rushed towards the school. Following Nico and Bianca's scent to wherever the sister was.

Finding her and yipped out in agreement. The left head reached down and yoinked Bianca up by the scruff of her shirt. Tossing her up and over to resting on his back, behind Alexei and Nico, before bounding away from the school with extreme speed. Vanishing off into the rising fog into a more forested area beofre he slowed down. Chrring loudly when he felt the nuzzling of his fur from his mate. Tails started wagging. The three heads asked alternating who was speaking as he continued moving.

Something tasted like grape soda which made him smile a little since the last time he'd had that drink was with his friend who had nudged him to try it. And he was warm. Blinking, he opened his eyes slightly to see blackness and blurriness. Nico's tired mind tried to puzzle it all out but he instead succumbed to the inviting darkness and allowed his body to sleep. When he did wake up he was more alert as once again saw black in his field of vision but could make out that it was fur. And he knew the sensation he was feeling! A bright grin lit up his face as he allowed his hand to reach out and touch the fur of his friend. Tilting his head up, he saw the same guy he saw earlier with the bronze blade that had fought his not teacher. Grey eyes shining in admiration he was going to blurt out how amazing the guy had been, but then they widened and he frantically looked around, leaning dangerously to the side to see around the teenager and sighed in relief to see his sister. They had been able to save her too! She gave him a slight smile and he guessed that it was a bit much to learn that he'd been telling the truth about the cerberus they were riding on. The boy couldn't help but give her an I told you so! look to which she rolled her eyes but gave a nod at his expression to admit she'd been wrong.

Satisfied, Nico straightened and looked back up at the teenager. "You were incredible! What was that thing? And did you throw lightning? Owwwww," he winced clapping his hand to his cheek. He still felt a bit woozy but he had had to ask his questions. He wanted to know if the lightning really did do 600 damage. Or did it do less since this guy wasn't Zeus?

The moment Nico showed signs of actually reacting positively to the Ambrosia, the teenager breathed a sigh of relief, his shoulders slumping. Nico was alive. Nico was alive and well and he wasn't going to get his ass whooped by Ares or Hades for Nico dying on this quest. Shaking his head, Alexei didn't even yelp when he was lifted onto Konan's back or when they went to fetch Bianca from inside the school. He just appraised the girl and seeing no harm done towards her, he turned back to Nico, his hand lightly resting on the child's pulse to genuinely make sure that he was alive and not just his mind playing tricks on him.

The next time Nico showed signs of waking up, Alexei already had anticipated the questions and gushing from the young child. Blinking his eyes, the demigod stared at the Hades child with amusement, his brow arching at the questions. "Calm down Nico." Alexei placed a hand on the child's shoulder, lowering his head to be eye to eye with the son of Hades. "That thing was a Manticore posing as your teacher, clearly it had smelt both you and your sister and wanted to take the two of you out before your father even knew. Thankfully Konan and I got here quickly enough for it not to have done much damage to you... As for the lighting... I... don't know." He sighed, shrugging his shoulders. "It's the first time I've actually seen it happen but my adopted brother once told me that I could always make lighting when I was younger, of course, I never knew that and I didn't really believe him... Until now." His voice was dry as he thought about the conversation he had with his adopted brother all those years ago. Now it made sense. Did his parent have some kind of affiliation with lighting?

If so then who was it?

The thought that it was Zeus never crossed Alexei's mind as he thought on the many gods and goddesses that had some type of affiliation with lighting.

The man who had pretended to be his teacher was a manticore?! Nico's grey eyes went wide at that, his hands automatically went to check the percentage points on his cards but stopped when his rescuer said something about his father? Looking up in confusion he scrunched his brow not understanding. What was he talking about? His and Bianca's parents had died. They had left a will and everything. That was one of the reasons why they had the family lawyer who had placed them in the hotel briefly after their parents died. It was part of the will to bring them here to Main or something. Maybe he got him confused with someone else?

Focusing on what he could understand, the boy lit up again all enthusiasm as questions tumbled from his mouth. "Are you Zeus in disguise? Or are you a demigod like Hercules? Except he couldn't throw lightning. Oh, but other gods can throw lightning too. Are you a demoted god? OW!"

Bianca had reached around and pinched him to get him to shut up. She also gave an exasperated, "This isn't your card game, Nico!"

She didn't have to tell him that or pinch him! Pouting, Nico's hands went again to grab his cards only he didn't have them! They were left behind when the manticore grabbed him and Nico had desperately shadow traveled. Shoulders slumping, his hand came up to touch the cut on his face and hissed. It still hurt! Mentally going over the facts he knew from his card, he thought he got away lucky! It had five thousand attack points! If it was right, it had poison and that poison could kill even Hercules! He really should have tried to shadow travel again after they were outside, but Nico had been so tired! And doing traveling like that wiped him out by sapping a lot of his energy. Then again, he hadn't been sleeping well.

"Our parents are dead," Bianca voiced from behind him. And Nico nodded looking up to check on his rescuer's reaction.

"Calm down kid." Alexei laughed softly as he listened to the rambling of the young child who seemed to be in shock from what happened unless of course, he was obsessed with that card game that Alexei had heard about. It was only when Bianca spoke up that Alexei realized that it was the latter and he couldn't help but shake his head.

"One of your parents is," Alexei replied instantly, his eyes watching the two children for any sort of reaction. "Your mother." The older demigod had no idea if he should tell the kids who their father was but he figured it would be safer than finding out from some of the more malicious demigods whose parent didn't like Hades. "Your father is very much alive. And you two are demi-gods, children of a god. It's why that Manticore was after the two of you."

Nico's grey eyes went wide at being told that he was a demigod. The boy had already had closure and had gotten over the fact his parents were dead. They'd been dead for awhile as far as he'd known so he wasn't too sad over that fact. Actually, he was quite excited that he was the son of a god! A grin stretched across his face only slightly marred by his wince from the cut on his face but even the pain couldn't dampen how he felt. Eyes shining he turned to look at Bianca who had this expression on her face that he couldn't read. Facing front again his mind whirring he looked down at the furry creature he was currently on and laughter bubbled up inside of him until it was let loose. "That is so cool!"

Leaning forward, he said softly enough for just the cerberus to hear, "I bet you knew that all along, didn't you, Konan?"

Looking up at Alexei he nodded. "So you're a demigod too?"

Alexei wondered how Nico would act but seeing the laughing pre-teen and the grinning face of Nico, the eldest male couldn't help but marvel at how a young kid like him could be happy about finding out that he had a father alive or that he was a demi-god. It made something in Alexei warm at the fact that Nico hadn't been broken about the apparent deaths of both of his parents and that he at least believed that he did have a father alive somewhere. Looking next to Nico at Bianca, Alexei watched her for a few seconds, his eyes taking in her body language and the look on her face; he wasn't sure if she was happy to find out that she was a daughter of a god or if she was furious that her father was alive. Whichever one it was, Alexei made a mental note to be there to witness whatever blow-out there would be. He had a feeling that the Daughter of Hades would have a few choice words for her father when the time came for them to meet.

"I am," Alexei replied with a sharp jerk of his head. "I don't know who my father is though and I don't particularly care, not after nine years of him not caring about me." Had he been just as young as Nico when he found out about his father maybe he would've been happier but nine years of being unclaimed really weighed on Alexei and had it not been for the offer he received from Mr D to stay on as the Counselor of Cabin 11, Alexei would've just disappeared, probably to another country all together.

Listening, Nico's hands did an aborted movement as they unconsciously wanted to rifle through his mythomagic cards. They would have had all the stats on the gods and maybe he could have helped him? Biting his lip, Nico thought about what he said and he kind of understood what he was going through or meant. He'd been confused because things were hazy, but he'd also been really upset with Bianca because she wasn't his parent but she always acted like she was sometimes. While knowing that wasn't the same, it was the only thing he could link it with. He'd come to terms with not having parents and to find out he had a godly parent? It was the coolest thing ever! "Maybe he was just really busy?"

They had to do things other than just sit on their thrones and accept offerings. Pondering over the cards he had memorized, he started mumbling about which gods had lightning listing them as they came to him. "Ares, Hephaestus, Zeus...wait..."

Turning his head to look up at the other boy he asked with big eyes, "Did our dad have you come get us?"

"Where are we going, would be a better question," Bianca stated looking at Alexei with suspicion and curiosity.

"I wish." Alexei snorted at that, rolling his eyes heavenwards before shaking his head. "It doesn't matter if he was busy or not, the least he could've done was shown that he actually cared about the son that he had. I'm one of the rare kids who didn't get claimed either because I didn't do something my father was known for or because my father is a dick and just doesn't give a damn about the son that he abandoned at some families place." He always knew that he wasn't his parent's real son, only now really knowing that his father gave him up. In the back of his mind he knew that as a god his father couldn't keep him but as a father, shouldn't he have at least protected Alexei from the monsters that tried eating him every single day ever since he could remember?

Blinking, the brunette focused on the children of Hades once again, listening to the questions before answering them, pretty much at the same time. "No, your father didn't send me here but another god did. I was tasked with bringing you two to Camp Half-Blood before either one of you died. Your father is a powerful god and you two are his children, your scent is strong to the monsters that roam this place. Had it not been for me arriving when I had, Nico would've died, or at least been lost to us." He then looked at Bianca, knowing that a further explanation was needed for what Camp Half-Blood was. "Camp Half-Blood is, mainly, a summer camp for Demi-gods like you two and I. There you will be trained up to protect yourselves from the monsters that would try and eat you as well as take quests from the gods."

Nico's grey eyes widened at that and quickly ducked his head. Did that mean that his and Bianca's dad was like that too? His shoulders sagged a bit more hearing that it hadn't been his dad that had asked Alexei to fetch him but some other one. Maybe the other god was doing it because his dad asked? He could hope right? At the thought that he could have died, might have if the cerberus and the lightning demigod hadn't shown up... Nico paled and felt scared again and began to shiver with more than cold. His jacket was back at the school along with all his things. Not that he had much that he treasured, just his cards, and maybe Konan would be able to get those for him later? It was the cerberus who had taken Nico places by shadow travel before.

Bianca had also gone pale at the thought but she was more concerned with other things. She'd been taking care of Nico practically her whole life. She placed a hand on his arm but he shrugged it off causing her to sigh. "Summer camp?" It was winter.

"Does this mean I'll get to learn to use a sword like you?" Nico asked picking up a little bit completely ignoring his sister's question.

Noticing Nico's reaction, Alexei leant over and flicked the younger demi-god's forehead, easily understanding the reason why Nico had been shivering. "You're still alive Nico and you're safe, no-one is getting past Konan and I, especially Konan considering that he could smell an enemy hundreds of miles away." The elder demi-god wrapped an arm around Nico's shoulder and pulled him closer into an awkward half-hug. "Don't look so down. Your father didn't ask for anyone to fetch you because he can't claim you two before you're safe behind camp barriers... Let's just say that your father broke a promise to his brother when he had you two with your mother and that brother is a very scary person." Alexei rubbed Nico's back lightly even as he turned towards Bianca and answered her question.

"It's mainly a summer camp but there are campers like myself who stay there full-time." He replied. "Some demi-god's do have loving and understanding families who protect their children from monsters so that they can attend school without worry only to send them to the camp during the summer."

"Yes Nico, you'll get to learn a sword like me but you can also pick up a different weapon if you so desire."

Nico rubbed at the spot he was flicked with only a halfhearted, a shy smile on his face feeling happy. He was right, he was alive and he knew that Konan wouldn't let anyone come near him. The cerberus had stayed glued to his side when he'd taken Nico out when he was teaching him to shadow travel. Welcoming the hug, Nico curled into the older boy's side, never having a brother and liked how it felt. He nodded at the other's reasoning and grinned. He'd probably get claimed at camp and it would be totally cool. And he'd get to learn to fight with a sword!

Happy again, Nico rubbed his hands together and thought about all the different weapons that would be at camp. He was going to try them all! But a sword was a must!

Bianca was quiet for a different reason musing things over but glanced from her brother to the other demigod and back before she looked at the surrounding area. Biting her lip and blushing she asked rather embarrassed, "Can we take a break? I never got to use the toilet..."

That caused her brother to break out of his daydreams and snicker causing her blush to darken and scowl at him.
