PostSubject: Beggers Can’t be Choosers    Sat Dec 30, 2017 10:16 pm

The two Centurions had been in the car with each other for only two hours, and already Liam wanted to shove the other kid out the door. But he didn’t. Even though, he really wanted too. He didn’t know why he found the other boy so annoying, cause really, he actually wasn’t doing anything in particular that most would find annoying. Either way, Liam was going to cut the kids hand hand off if he didn’t stop changing the radio station half way through every song. Liam prayed the quest would be an easy one, assuming nothing went wrong. The demigod/legacy didn’t want to spend anymore time than he needed to with Fifth Cohorts Centurion.

Christian glanced over at Liam, he could see the amount of frustration in his face, which was a victory to the legacy. He silently high-fived himself in his mind as he changed the radio station as a song was starting after an ad played. He looked back at the other Centurion. "What? Everyone knows shotgun gets DJ duties, and you wanted to drive so badly." Christian reminded, as though he was a smug father who had just taught their child a lesson in the most condescending way possible.

Christian sat back in his seat. He didn't get along with the authority of Cohort 1 or 2, much less their rich families. "So, I guess a money bath has to actually be pretty gross, huh?" He asked, pretending it was a subject Liam would know about. "I mean, money touches so many hands. You'll have the flu and maybe even malaria by the time you get out of the bath." He finished. "Take your next exit, half a mile away." Christian said. He'd mess with Liam's attitude and music, but he wasn't willing to screw up their path. Christian was wherever the car was.

Liam almost rolled his eyes, but he refrained from it. The legacy, wasn’t really in the mood he hadn’t slept since the day before, because his father had all but dragged him from barracks back to the house for “training.” And the way he remembered it, it hadn’t been like Christian had offered to drive. Cause Liam would have gladly let him.

It was also annoying that people insinuated that just cause his father had money, it meant he also had money. In reality, Liam has never laid hands on it, and the “perks” of bring rich didn’t really feel like it when there were ultimatums surrounding everything he owned. “Actually, the money we use for our baths is always freshly printed. So one dirty hands have touched it yet.” He finally answered, sarcastically as he made the right turn onto the exit. He hoped it would shut him up for a while. Only four hours left till they reached their destination, and all Liam wanted to do was sleep.

"Not the worst idea." Christian pondered in response to Liam's statement about printing money. "The blend used to make money is special though. Your money is gonna papercut you to shreds. So, pick your poison I guess." Christian continued. "Swine flu or thin cuts where the sun don't shine." He concluded his lesson. "We learned that the top 1% of people actually has a harder time bathing than meets the eye. We'll all remember your struggles." Christian finished his sarcastic tangent.

"You'll be on this road for a long time. Keep your eyes open, I've never had good luck with monsters on back roads." Christian told him. He wasn't a fan of having his fate in someone else's hands, but it wasn't like some kid was driving. He figured given Liam's resources, he'd driven his fair share of cars.

Liam ignored the other boys speech about printing money. If making fun of how much money his father made, helped Christian in some juvienille way to feel better about himself, than Liam couldn’t care less. It wasn’t the first time someone took a jab at how much money his family, and it certainly wouldn’t be the last time.

“I’ve successfully driven a car, and managed to avoid monsters before. But thanks for the tip.” He answered sarcastically. “Sure you don’t want to drive?” He asked as an after thought.

"Listen, Richie Rich." Christian began, a reference that was likely long forgotten by most humans. "My worry that we might get jumped out here is a valid concern, I don't need you micro-managing the gravity of life outside of New Rome. If you even know what that's like." Christian nearly scoffed, but decided that the underlying nature of the move would just be over the top.

"With that being said, I'd actually love to drive; thought you'd never ask." Christian relied. "Pull over on the side, I don't see the point in waiting for another rest-stop." He said. They were few and far around these parts.

“With pleasure.” Liam says, pulling the car to a stop along the side of the road. He’d rather not drive anyway, and maybe letting Christian drive would make him shut up, though he doubted it. Liam put the car in park, and got out. He kept his eyes open for monsters as he walked to the other side, while stopped like this, they were basically sitting ducks if anything happened.

Once Christian had gotten into the drivers seat, Liam made himself as comfortable as possible, so long as the other kid didn’t talk, he might be able to catch an hour or so of sleep.

Every time Christian stepped out of a car on a quest, he felt his hairs stand up. The first time he'd left Camp Jupiter on a quest his Centurion had pulled over a few hours into driving. Christian opened his door, and some large black bull had taken the door, and Christian's feet far away from the ground, and even half a decade later, Christian still held onto the feint memory. The pair switched their spots, and thankfully, that was the end of it with no surprises.

To be truthful, Christian hated being in Canada again, and was happy that was behind them once more. They were in Alaska, and once they reached their town, all they had to do was question folks until they gave them Apollo's Sundial. The car filled with silence, eventually, Christian noticed his partner nod off next to him. It killed Christian to not blast the radio on or just slam the breaks and send Liam flying. But despite his bratty nature, Christian wouldn't forgive himself if he did something that later got someone else killed, no matter how he felt about them. They were both soldiers of New Rome.

So the hours passed of desensitizing Alaskan country back roads. By the time they reached their spot, Christian could see the sun getting close to reaching set, which wasn't surprising considering their geographic location. "Hey, wake up." Christian called to him. "You're gonna be someone's dinner if they catch you sleeping. And probably not a monster's; they're cold and resourceful this way. Eat a human instead of letting them go to waste." He exaggerated.

Liam woke up, he blinked a couple times so his eyes would get used to the light. He ignored Christian’s bit about being eaten. Christian acted as if Liam had never been on a quest before, he wasn’t a newbie to this. However, Liam wasn’t in the mood to fight, from here the two of them would have to go on foot once they got the locals to tell them where the dial was kept, if they even knew themselves, and from what Liam had gathered during the briefing, the trek wasn’t supposed to be easy.

~~~

“Oh thank the gods we’re finally here.” Sophia piped up. At the last minute, the Senate had decided that two soldiers may not be enough, so Sophia, having been the only one available was instructed to catch up with her two fellow Centurions. Luckily they hadn’t left camp yet, so she had just jumped into the backseat. However the two had been so busy arguing like an old married couple they hadn’t heard her get in the car, and even announce herself, which she had, fairly loudly.

Sophia climbed out of the car, grabbing her bag and slinging it over her shoulder. Her bow and arrows, were slung over top. She was ready to go. “What are you staring at? We don’t got all night.” She said, when she noticed Liam staring at her.
