Remy followed Liam's car through the streets of New Rome. It was fairly busy today, with adults and teenagers alike walking around and socializing. They passed some cafes that Remy remembered, as well as some office buildings and stores. In the distance she could see the gates of New Rome University, where students walked in and out.

It all seemed so surreal to her, being back. She never really thought she'd see these streets again.

They ended up driving along one of the outer neighborhoods, where classic Italian villas stood. Most of them were on the smaller side. The bigger villas were closer to the center of New Rome. These were probably mostly college students or new parents. Then they came upon a small villa, made entirely of black marble. She didn't have to guess that this was their destination.

Remy hopped off her motorcycle, pulling her helmet off and looking up at the small villa. She felt somewhat apprehensive. Although she had stayed in contact with Gem longer than everyone else at camp, there was still a small part of her that was worried that he wouldn't want to see her.

Liam parked on the street, and got out of his car. He leaned against the side it, figuring he would hang back a bit and let them have their reunion moment without his "third-wheeling." Not that he actually was a third-wheel, but the two of them were definitely the best of friends and mostly just let him hang out around them, which he was fine with so it worked out pretty well. Liam waited patiently for another few minutes for her to actually go up to the villa and knock on the door, but when she didn't, he felt slightly compelled to help. "Scared? Just knock already!" He yelled over to her, hoping to urge her into doing so.

Jawahar Al-Addid, better known as Gem for those who can't pronounce his name correctly, had just finished classes a couple of hours ago and was in the backyard practicing his glass blowing. He had gotten into it after he mastered masonry which took him three months to prefect.

After he finished up with newly heated glass, he placed it down to let it cool. Gem was dressed in a pair of torn blue jeans, black boots, and an apron that was over his black t-shirt. Soot was smeared here and there along his arms and neck from his time cleaning his car that was disguised as a cart.

With a sigh, he was about to go back inside of his black marble villa when he heard, or rather sensed a car and motorcycle out front.

"Who could this possibly be?" Gem the legacy of Pluto and Vulcan asked himself before shadow traveling to the front of his house.

"Who is..." Gem paused. "...R-Remy?" He said it as if he couldn't believe that it was true. "Remy?!" Gem ran toward her and wrapped his strong arms around her. "I thought you died! That last text message f*cking scared the Tartarus out of me!"

Remy started to approach the door, telling herself that she could do it. It was Gem, they were best friends. Nothing could go wrong. That was when a shadow materialized 6 feet in front of her, and out popped the man himself. He was older now. Obviously. She had last seen him face to face when she was fifteen years old and about to leave camp for Brooklyn. It had been nine years.

"Hi there." Remy said, giving him a small smile. That smile grew wider when he hugged her.

"I'm sorry." She said, knowing full well what message he meant. A week after her mother was killed, Remy texted him saying "I can't get out.". She had to dump the phone afterwards, after one of her bosses realized she had it. They kept a close eye on her after that. "I'm so sorry, Gem. I wanted to contact you but I couldn't. They were watching me. It took me forever to get away." She realized she was probably saying too much with Liam in the area, so she left it at that.

Gem continued to hug her. She looked so different after nine years of being appeared. Gods knows what she went through. He pulled away from her to study her face, listening to her speak.

"I would've split the entire city open if it meant getting you out." Gem searched her blue eyes with his own brown ones before looking passed her and to Liam. He had seen him a few days ago in New Rome, but that didn't stop him from giving him a smile. Gods that man was hot. Anyway.

"Shit, Tiger Shark. I-I just don't understand why you didn't --," He dropped his voice down to a whisper. "Why the hell couldn't you get out of that mob, huh? You're a legacy of two Olympian gods you could've taken them all on." Gem sighed. "We'll finish this conversation later."

Liam gave Gem a quick grin back, then went back to looking through his phone. He was slightly bored, and starting to wonder when they would be done talking about things that he wasn't supposed to know about, but could hear anyway because they weren't being as quiet as they thought they were. Liam paid no mind to the little tidbits he heard though, figuring if Remy wanted to tell him then she would.

Remy nodded, "Later." She repeated. She looked back around at Liam, who was leaning against his car. She realized he probably heard everything, including the thing he wasn't supposed to hear. She didn't want everyone to know right away, especially with the consequences it could bring.

"Whatever you just heard, can I trust you not to tell anyone?" Many things could go wrong if the word got out. It could get her kicked out of New Rome, arrested, and depending on how far word got, it could lead to her death. Its not that she didn't trust Liam, it was more that she had problems trusting just about anyone. Except Gem of course.

Liam got Gem's attention again and waved him over. "Hey, Liam! Why don't you come inside with Reef Shark and I?! I got beer in the fridge and can order some wings." He looked down at Remy and smirked some. "We have something to celebrate."

Gem then turned around and started walking toward his front door. Pushing it open, he led them into his dimly lit home. His walls were painted gray with various torches that burned brightly. His home had a very North African theme to it.

"Both of you sit in the living room," Gem glared at the fireplace and soon the logs were set aflame. "I'll get the beers."

"Sure!" Liam answered following them as Gem led them into his house, he glanced around the living room as he was instructed to sit down, he couldn't remember the last time he had been in here. Still looked super cool, compared to even his own house, which wasn't really a house and more of a mansion.
"Don't worry, I won't tell anyone. I promise, you can trust me." Liam told Remy once both of them were seated on the couch, and Gem was getting them all beers. Though, he really hadn't heard enough to actually be capable of telling on her. He'd need a lot more than what he had overheard if he really wanted to get her into trouble. Which he really did not.

Remy nodded, "Thanks." She said as she sat down on the couch. She looked around the living room a bit. It all seemed very Gem.

"So," Remy started, "What have you two been up to in the past nine years?" She realized why she had been gone, life had been continuing for them. Probably fairly normal compared to what she experienced. She wondered for a moment, what her life would've been like if she had stayed. She could've finished her service, maybe even climbed some ranks. She could've attended college. It all seemed so weird to her, the thought of a normal life.

Jawahar came back to the living room with three beers. He handed one to Liam, then to Remy before sitting down on his black couch. He smiled a bit and looked down at his dark, hardwood floors. "Well, uh," He stood up to take off his apron and threw it over the back of the couch.

"I got engaged to this guy. Son of Ceres." Gem sighed and popped open his beer to take a sip. "Things didn't work out, so," He shrugged his shoulders and looked between Liam and Remy. "There's that."

"Damn, really? That sucks, man." Liam told him, as he opened his can and took a drink of it. He actually hadn't known that. Liam took a second smaller sip of the beer, "I was First Cohort Centurion, for a bit." He told Remy, "my dad's also still completely crazy." He added the last part about his dad as an after thought, normally he wouldn't have said it but for some reason he did.

Remy took the beer and used the pocket knife around her neck to open it. She took a sip, listening to Gem.
"I'm sorry to hear that Gem. For what its worth, he probably didn't deserve you." It felt a little odd, to miss this much. She and Gem used to tell each other everything, and now she's missed a whole relationship of his. Then again he did miss one of hers. Maybe they were even now.

"Gods, I remember your dad. Really intense. He still doing that thing where he takes you out to the woods and leaves you there?" Remy had only met Liam's dad once or twice, but she picked up on his personality pretty quickly.

Gem gave them both a smile and took another sip of his beer. "Thanks, guys." He sighed and leaned back in his seat and looked at Liam, though his mind was still on Remy. He wondered if she had a lover while out doing whatever she did. He still couldn't believe that she was back.

"Your dad lowkey scares me. Then again, he's a Victoria kid who attracted the attention of Bellona. Four times." Gem laughed a bit and shook his head. "He's something else."

Liam smirked, "Yeah he's... Definitely something. And yes, Remy he dropped us off in the middle of nowhere just last week." He said, taking another sip of his beer. "So, anyway.... What else is new? Gem? You're majoring in what now?" He asked, trying to get off the topic of his dad, that he acidently got started. Plus he was genuinely curious, since even though they saw each other around, they never actually really talked to each other to much.

"Jesus christ." Remy commented. Her dad used to be somewhat concerned about safety and preparedness and the like. It made sense to her, since he had always been chased by monsters due to his father. He had taught her some basic things, like what to do when a monster is following you, how to not let mortals think you're a murderer et cetera. Still, dropping your kids off in the woods and letting them figure out how to survive is on a whole different level.

"Oh, uh," Gem shifted in his seat. "I'm an Earth Science major, but I'm not sure if I should change it to something else." The only reason why he decided to go in the direction of earth science was because of how easy it was for him. "Maybe I'll add a minor in something to see if that helps." The legacy of Pluto and Vulcan picked up a takeout menu of a wing place in New Rome that he usually ordered from.

"So, what do we want? Honey barbeque? Chipotle?" Jawahar looked between Remy and Liam.

"Sounds interesting though." Liam told him, more interesting than business was at least. Gods he hated being a business major it was so boring. "Chipotle and Honey Barbeque both sound good to me, so you can just pick whatever you guys want." He left that decision up to them, since he was the farthest thing from a picky eater.
