We ate quietly in the old dinning room. But that didn't seem too kill the fact that there was a Cold War going on.
I still had a pity on Perseus. I wanted to get my vengeance, but Leto was sitting close by made it impossible for me to lung at him from across the table.
I occasionally glanced up at his direction. It wasn't that I took interest on him or something. It was just my curiosity, maybe just to give him my dangerous message via the glance.
And every time I peeked a look, I always found him already there staring back at me. At first it was kinda awkward that I immediately looked back at my food. But times go by and now we both had a staring competition.
Why does he have to possess that annoying face? Those mischievous and part innocent eyes of his that made me to lose my focus. That goofy smirk was so much annoying that I just wanted to choke him to death and his pout sometimes made me smile. It was a mixture of my own internal feeling whenever I looked straight at him. And somehow, I couldn't quite sure how to explain. Lucky I wasn't Athena, or I would've been banging my head to the wall, trying to figure out what it was.
The breakfast kept on with that. Leto at the head of the table, Perseus and I sat across and staring...well consider danger for now at each other. When thing was about to explode and we would lung at each other to rip the other's head out. Leto would let out an intentional cough and we both found the plates of soup so interesting.
"So...after breakfast, why don't you take Artemis around the island Perseus?" Leto tried to break the ice at last. "You may try to know each other better!"
I immediately gave out a frustrated groan. "Mum! I don't need a guider!"
"Yeah right" Across from me, Perseus muttered, playing with his food. "Spoken by a visiter."
I stabbed my knife down the sandwich so hard that it clashed against the plate at the bottom. Making an unpleasant sound.
"Perseus" Leto glanced at him, emphasised his name while raising her eyebrows. "She is your sister"
I smirked as he gulped from mother's dangerous stare.
"Ye-yeah" he stuttered. "Go out with Artemis. Try to know my... Sister better!"
As he said the word sister, it was like he tried to swallow a big rock. Which I felt great because I didn't want to call him brother either. Seriously, I've already got a super annoying and stupid brother. I didn't want to get another one.
"But mum!" I whined, trying to show her my apathy about her ideas. To which she responded with her infamous glance and I knew I should better be off with Perseus than to argue.
After breakfast to which I didn't feel like it much. We departed for our lovely (sarcasm) trip.
"You two have fun" Leto said. "Be back before dinner ok?"
Perseus leaned his back on a tree. Feeling more frustrated than ever and as the same as me.
"It won't take long mum" I told her.
"Yeah" Perseus said. "It will end soon before it even started."
Leto didn't say anything and walked back into the house, leaving both of us at the front yard.
I immediately reached or my dagger at my waist and Perseus folded his fists.
"By the way" Leto's voice came from the door made us both jump. "I'll be watching so don't think about killing each other off."
I gave her an awkward smile, while Perseus did a faked salute. I signal him with a glance 'Let's get outta here before everything gets worse'. He somehow understood and started to move.
"OK sister" He said amiably with a faked smile. "Let's go that way!"
