"Oh please. I have so got the guts." She scowled at him. "What happened with that idiot was a one-time thing. It ain’t gonna happen again." Although she hadn’t forgotten the black eye that he’d given her. Nope.


"Says the girl who managed to get the most peaceful camper in the history of ever pissed off. Who knew he could throw punches like that? Not me, that’s for certain, and I’ve known him for a while now."

"You make it sound as if pissing someone off is an accomplishment," she muttered sourly. "Besides, he’s still half-human — he’s bound to get pissed from time to time. And even the gods get pissed off." Although she was pretty sure the guy hated her now. Damn.




Jodie shrugged as she leaned against the stable wall, her hands in her pockets. To be completely honest, she had no idea what she was doing there. She’d been bored, and hoping to bug that little wine spawn, so cane to the stables after AJ suggested he was there. Clearly he wasn’t.

"What, I can’t ride a little early?"

No one would want you to ‘ride a little early’, Reddie,” Butch drawled. “Not even the oldest d’Vino. Or the youngest, really.” His large hands were busy with fastening the bridles—the reins—around Guido’s neck. “Look, if you’re going to spent your time here, you might as well make yourself useful, yeah?”

Jodie merely raised an eyebrow at him. Well, it seemed as if someone wasn’t too fond of her. She didn’t get why. She was a very loveable person.

"How?" she questioned boredly, as if she already knew the answer. Which she did — it didn’t particularly mean that she liked it, though.



Jodie froze on the stairs when she saw the monster, not exactly sure whether to run or help Ailiana or… well, her insticts were kind of caught between telling her to run and telling her to fight.
"Wh-what is that…?" she whimpered.

That caught the cyclops’ attention, and he growled, baring his teeth before grabbing Ailiana’s sword. Or, at least, he tried to. Celesial Bronze didn’t exactly agree with him.

Ailiana’s stomach dropped when she saw Jodie at the top of the stairs. /Jodie knows. She’ll hate me forever. If I live./ All Ailiana wanted was to protect Jodie and keep this possible bond alive. /I failed./

"Run!" she ordered, her voice cracking. "Don’t stop! Don’t turn around! Just get out of here!"

Jodie really wanted to run away, and do what Ailiana said, saving her own life and leaving her to do her thing, but another part of her wanted to jump down and help her. She didn’t know why, but she felt as if it was the right thing to do. After all, from the way she seemed to be holding her sword, the fight between the girl and the Cyclops seemed to be going awry.

The redhead leapt down the rest of the stairs, grabbing a nearby table lamp and threw it, getting thw Cyclops right in the forehead and knocking him back through the doorway. She grabbed Ailiana’s hand and began to pull her up the stairs. “Come on!”



Jodie shrugged at that. It kind of annoyed her how they weren’t allowed to sit with who they wanted to, but she supposed rules were rules. After all, Chiron didn’t seem to be someone who tolerated a lot of rule-breaking.

"Yeah. I’ll meet you down at the beach during campfire. No one really notics us, so we won’t get told off or anything." She grinned.

"Great," Nick chirped. He was trying to stall for time since he didn’t want to leave. "So do you want to walk to dinner with me or…?"

Maybe he could get farther with this girl. Someday….in the distant future…

Jodie smiled.slightly at the offer, and shrugged before nodding. “Yeah, I guess. I don’t have to go back to my cabin, so it’s all good.”

She walked over to Nick and nudged him playfully. “C’mon, then. Let’s get going!”

"Please... Don't let me die...." I pleaded as I laid on the floor, clutching my stab wound in my side. Blood was slowly pooling out of me, adding to the blood from the gash on my forehead. blood streaked my honey brown hair as fear glazed my jade green eyes. My small body was frail and pale from the blood loss as I stood at a small 5"1.




Jodie stared down at her with wide eyes, before kneeling down and beginning to apply pressure to the wound. That was all she knew to do in a situation like this. With her other hand, she dialled for an ambulance.

Jodie moved the Apollo kids out of the way, before moving to sit up on the bed beside Bailey, ignoring their protests. “You need a hug?” she asked.

I practically threw myself on top of her, wrapping my arms around her neck as I sobbed into the mystery girls neck. I didn’t even know her that well, my eyesight was fuzzy.

Jodie cringed a little at how the hug nearly strangled her, but she hugged the girl back anyway, rubbing her back. “It’s okay…”




imageJodie could literally see the sarcasm dripping from what he said and she scoffed, rolling her eyes at him dramatically. “Oh really? Maybe I should just keep you alive and torture you, then. That would be so much easier.”


"Honestly, I don’t think you’ve got the guts, darlin’. We all know what went down last time you tried that on Butch. It took three people to restrain him and then some to restrain Guido the pegasus.”

"Oh please. I have so got the guts." She scowled at him. "What happened with that idiot was a one-time thing. It ain’t gonna happen again." Although she hadn’t forgotten the black eye that he’d given her. Nope.



"Sorry to disappoint, Reddie McRed Red. I haven’t seen d’Vino in a while. He’s probably smooching. With Drew. Come to think of it," Butch furrowed his brows. "Why are you here?! Your cabin is going to ride the pegasi’s after lunch and it’s at least two hours before we get it.”

Jodie shrugged as she leaned against the stable wall, her hands in her pockets. To be completely honest, she had no idea what she was doing there. She’d been bored, and hoping to bug that little wine spawn, so cane to the stables after AJ suggested he was there. Clearly he wasn’t.

"What, I can’t ride a little early?"

mocha-fortissimo whispered:
18, 29, and 33!!! (And Hi to you too! Figured that I would send some and return the favor! :) )

"Awesome! Not many people talk to me on here (then again, I don’t really spend a lot of time on here either…) so I don’t get many questions!"

18. Favorite movie ever?

"Oooh… I don’t know! I like different movies at different times, and it depends on my mood. I mean, I love Marvel movies, and Disney movies… if I had to pick… maybe The Lion King 2? Ooooor Avengers Assemble."

29. Have you ever been in a castle?

"Yup! I’ve been inside the Tower of London many times! It’s kind of cool in there, but most of the time I went on school trips. I haven’t been there since I was about thirteen."

33. Name five facts about yourself.

"Oh, um…
"Well, I’m a bassist. I have been ever since I was about ten, I think? I taught myself using my mum’s bass, and then she bought me my own a couple of years later. It’s purple and black and gorgeous!
"I actually like wearing heels and trying on dresses, despite what people think. I mean, I gotta feel feminine sometimes, y’know? (I even like wearing heels sometimes…)
"My favourite colour is greeeen (although if you can’t tell that from my blog by now, well…)
"I actually own a Youth Home, and take care of lots of kids. Most of them are around 15, 16, but they’re what makes me love my job — they make all the paperwork worth it. Even if they are little shits sometimes.
"And finally… um… hmmm… oh! I’m still captain of my local women’s football team! We play on Saturdays, and loads of people always turn up to watch. It’s loads of fun!"

It’s Playtime



The fact that he matched her grip made her smile slightly more than before. Usually guys tried to make their grip stronger, in an attempt to intimidate her, or gentler to try and flirt with her. And this was neither — like an attempt to be friends with her, she supposed. And she liked it. It was a nice change from the usual.

"Yeah, well, you’re American, and look at all the weird names you give your kids," she retorted with a slight grin. "I mean, I’m sorry, but Fanny is a much weirder name than Jodie.” She found herself stuffing her hands into her pockets, partially to stop herself from fidgeting with them and partially because her hands were getting just a little bit cold. “But, yeah, c’mon. The others are waiting ever so patiently.”

As soon as Jodie said that, she turned on her heel and took a few steps back towards her grou0 of friends, and then looked back over her shoulder to see if Devon was following her over.

"You know, if we’re gonna talk about American’s giving weird names to things, I think I’d be more concerned about people naming their kids things like Apple or Hurricane."  Blade described with a jovial voice, kicking the concrete of the sidewalk a bit with his foot before looking forward at the girl’s movement and following her towards the field.

Whether or not she intended to do so, she had matched his gesture of stuffing his hands in his pockets.  While he had done so to show a bit more of a casual posture towards the girl, the fact she’d repeated him amused him.  There was an acceptance in the gesture somehow as tended to be the case when people unconsciously repeated the movements of someone else.  Blade felt his lips lift in a genuine smile, a strange though running through his mind, Hmn.  Maybe I could actually make it in the real world someday.

He shook the thought off, deciding to continue with the pointless and meaningless conversation topic they were on, “I even heard of someone naming their kid At, but instead of spelling it Ay-Tee, they spelled it like the at symbol on a keyboard.  Isn’t that nutty?”

"Who the fuck in their right mind would name their kid after a fruit?" she asked, giving him a look as if to say ‘you’re crazy’. Although that look wasn’t aimed directly at him — it was aimed more at the general American population. And since Devon was the only American there… well, it seemed fitting, didn’t it?

The more he kept talking, though, the crazier the American’s sounded, and her hope in that population slowly began to dissipate. They were so damn crazy — she was sure of it. “That kid will change their name when they get older, I’m sure of it.” She scoffed. “Sometimes you’ve just got to wonder whether these parents actually consider what kind of social life their kids will have in the future, or whether they just want to have a little fun and ruin their lives.”

It didn’t take her long to reach her group of ‘friends’ again, although she was so busy talking with Devon that she almost didn’t notice until they tried to nick the ball off her. When they did, she kicked one guy in the knee, merely scoffing as he hobbled away whimpering.
