"If I win tomorrow I will do my best to make sure everyone is happy. Everyone. The uptowners, downtowners, Olympians. I'm sure we can find a nice middle ground for all of them to be happy on within a decade."

"You missed one, " Lysander muttered.

"I beg your pardon?"

"Never mind, " he waved the question away. "They clearly don't matter to you."

Who is he talking about?

"Oh, " the moderator exclaimed when he looked at his watch. "We don't have as much time as I thought we did so we better wrap this up."

Koris let out a small sigh of relief. Thank God that he got to end the debate on a high note with the better approval rating. The joy of that was enough to put the thought of how Mel was probably going to have a few words with him out of his mind. She would not be pleased that he gave into Lysander's personal bicker and dissed her boyfriend.

And he was right.

His victorious attitude quickly deflated when he stepped inside his house. Mel had the stare that turned men to stone.

"Melody didn'ta mean it, " Flick reassured the Olympian.

Perseus gave him a confused look.

"I'm sorry, Melody didn't mean what?"

"When she called us retards. I-I just don'ta want you to think she hates ya. She doesn't hate us, she just doesn't like that Koris gives attention to us 'cause we're not his real kiddie thingies."

Perseus had no answer so his default smile spread across his face. He lied back down and stared at the stars on the ceiling's screen.
