Cepheus had just left out of the Senate House after having a minor meeting with the other three Aediles of Camp Jupiter. It was a pretty short meeting only lasting about thirty to forty-five minutes. Quick and to the point; Cepheus' favorite. He was now heading down the steps dressed in a camp t-shirt, khaki pants, and a white toga to top it off. He even had a laurel crown made of ears of corn on his head. He ran into Christian and Rowan while leaving the Senate House and made sure to greet them. His father always told him that appearances were important and socializing with the those who families were just as important as his.

Feeling himself getting a bit peckish, Cepheus made his way over to one of the fruit markets that his father was in charge of.

"A bowl of raspberries, please." Cepheus looked his raspberries.

Although Amara might be Opito, that never excluded her from the boring chores at camp. In fact, she seemed to be getting even more of them since she had gotten the spot. She had been delivering documents to different places in Camp and New Rome all day and had finally gotten the last document to one of the Senators. Amara stood out on the steps of the Senate House, staring out at the market before her, trying to decide whether or not she should go back to camp or hang around a bit longer. That was when Amara noticed a family friend amongst the shoppers.
Amara approached Cepheus, looking closer at the fruits laid out on the stall table. "Could I get a couple nectarines?" She asked politely, before turning to Cepheus, "Are is your dad going to be at the Camp Jupiter benefit gala this Thursday?" Amara was very familiar with this benefit gala. It was the perfect place for the well off families of New Rome to give back to the campers. Whether that included funding building repair or the purchase of more gold to make into weapons.

Cepheus turned his head when he heard a friendly voice beside him. With a smile on his face, the son of Ceres responded to Amara Julius, "of course he is," Cepheus answered. And probably with his girlfriend, Helena, too. His father,  Georgius Severus, loved attending anything that involved food and celebration. That was one of the reasons why Ceres was attracted to him.

The woman behind the stand handed Cepheus his bowl of raspberries. The latter gave the nice lady a head nod, basically telling her to put it on his father's "tab". "So, what are you doing out here in the forum of Rome?" The ebony demigod asked as he plucked a ripe raspberry up from the bowl and tossed it into his mouth.

Amara shrugged pushing up the sleeves of her white shirt, "Oh, you know, Opito duties. I'm finally starting to get used to this title." It was weird at first, having authority over her brother. But she was able to put that aside knowing that what she was doing was bettering Camp Jupiter as a whole. Whether it be delivering important documents or helping new kids around camp.
Amara paid for the fruit, giving the woman at the stall a smile. "What about you?" she asked, straying away from the fruit stall and continuing down the market street. "What brings the aedile into town?" Although, based on the clothing that he was wearing, she could probably hazard a guess.

"I felt the same way when I become the newest member of the Aediles after one of them quit." Yeah, "quit". Not muscled out by stronger forces that worked behind the scenes. Cepheus shifted his weight some as he moved to the other side of Amara so that he wasn't in any one's way.

Cepheus turned his attention down to the nectarines that were given to her. They looked a little unripened. Hm. The son of Ceres's eyes glowed for a second and the fruit became fully ripened. Is father used to joke that they were legacies of Pomona, too, but he didn't believe him. "And the other aediles and I were just talking at the Senate House about future festivals. We also talked about the possibility of having a field of some kind added to help with production. Maybe a couple of farms as well."

"It's always so weird climbing ranks because one minute you're the same as everybody else and the next-" Amara paused to watch the nectarines ripen. She always found powers fascinating. Unlike her cousins and almost everybody else at camp, Amara had no powers. She was basically a mortal that liked to be eaten by monsters. It was entirely unfair. She had three gods in her ancestry and what did she get to show for it? Absolutely nothing.

Amara had lost her train of thought, but Cepheus was quick to bring her attention back. She listened for a moment and nodded, "More festivals sounds wonderful, although if you ask my grandfather, he'll insist they make one about him. I think a festival for the Legion itself would be nice. To commemorate the year and show how far we've grown as a team." Teamwork, that's what Amara liked about the Legion. Family forged by choice instead of blood. Not to say that related family was any less important. She just thought that so many festivals were devoted to the gods, it shouldn't be so hard to devote a festival to the people that celebrated them.

Cepheus raised an eyebrow when Amara stopped talking. Was there something wrong? Had she noticed the ripening of the fruit? Cepheus assumed the latter but didn't say anything about it. "You're welcome." Okay, now he wasn't going to say anything about it.

Cepheus nodded his head at the suggestions that Amara was giving him. "We celebrate the gods and indirectly, celebrate Rome's longevity." The son of Ceres popped a ripe berry into his mouth. He moaned a bit as the juicy from the raspberry soaked his taste buds in flavor and go down his throat. Perfect raspberries. "On the seventeenth of August, we'll have our Portunalia in honor of the god of keys and ports and on the nineteenth," a small smile came across his face, "is the Vinalia Rustica in honor of Venus." Cepheus made it his business to learn and member all of the festivals that Camp Jupiter practices. His father drilled it through his brain countless time.

Speaking on the love goddess... "...How's your brother?" Cepheus asked, looking straight forward. He nodded his head at a couple of Romans he knew well and smiled some, "Felix, right?" He knew his name.

Amara nodded at the list of festivals. She didn't know the festivals too well, usually only the ones for the month. She did take note of the Vinalia Rustica festival, not that it was her cup of tea. Then she noticed Cepheus' mention of her brother. Amara stopped walking and turned to the taller man. She crossed her arms and her smile turned into a smirk.

"Yes, Felix." She said, as if Cepheus didn't already know. She and her brother were often joined at the hip, it was very rare for someone to know her and not him. "Why? Were you thinking of inviting him to the Vinalia Rustica personally?" Oh, she would have to tease her brother endlessly about this.

The Aedile of Rome stopped when she did and turned to face her. He was about to ask her what was wrong when she spoke up. The tips of his ears turned red at the question that wasn't posed to him.

"..Of course not." He quickly said. Amara knew that he was gay, but only her and Caelia. That's about it. Just two. Cepheus quickly turned around and started walking again. "I just forgot his name for a second, that's all." The son of Ceres cleared his throat and glanced over at Amara. With a gleam on his eyes, he nudged her with his shoulder.

"Mhmm" Amara said, clearly not convinced. "Of course, his name just slipped your mind." She walked after him, smiling when he nudged her.

"So." She said as nonchalantly as possible (which was not as convincing as she thought), "What happens at this, Vinalia Rustica?" She had never been before in her years of living in New Rome. Perhaps she was too young for it at the time. After all, Venus was the goddess of fertility. Plus, Romans were known for their love of pleasure. Honestly, she figured it was like Valentine's day, but she would take any chance to tease Cepheus about his little crush. Besides, out of all the potential romantic candidates for Felix, Cepheus would probably be one of the best.

Amara wasn't going to let this go was she? Dammit, he never should've even mentioned Felix's name. "An orgy," Cepheus deadpanned with a smirk on his face. He rolled his playfully and told her what really happens at the festival, "...some good old grape smashing, wine drinking, being merry, and everything else. It's celebrates Jupiter and Venus, but it sounds like Bacchus would be celebrated, too." Cepheus explained. He continued to eat more of his raspberries. He could probably grow sweeter ones, but he didn't have time for that. Then later in the year his mother would be celebrated. He was more so looking forward to that since this year, he would be in charged.
