It's the night before Viggo and his mom leaves for soccer camp. But it seems that her mind is more focused on Viggo's coming junior and senior high school years. She wants him to put all his time into focusing on school. Obtaining excellent marks in secondary school will help him excel in university.
Everyone met up at the airport. After passing out each teens airplane ticket they all boarded the flight. It wasn't to long of a journey and they arrived at the camp in no time.
To stretch their legs Cynthia, Viggo and, Edward played a game of kicky sack.
After unpacking and settling in, followed by a hot meal they settled down to a game of Don't wake the Llama. Tomorrow was their first big day of training.
Viggo was the first one to hit the field. Though, he should have invested in some practical sports wear. I don't think dancing tights make good soccer wear!
It looks like the leotard tread is contagious, Ye had a pair too!
Mary prides herself on being a pretty good soccer player, but Ye blocks her first kick.
This is the look of determination! (Isn't she cute!)
Someone has been watching way to many episodes of Heroes!
After practice Cynthia takes the kids to one of Three Lake's popular sites.
Viggo meets a local and tries to strike up a conversation. It's obvious that she's not interested and soon walks away.
The boys decide to go on a sight seeing tour.
The girls stayed behind to catch some fish.
Mary caught a big one. Too bad you couldn't get a scholarship for fishing, because she would have one.
"You can make a nice living playing sports professionally. Just look at this summer camp. I paid for its construction with my own money." (And a small load, but Cynthia left that part out.)
"Really?" Ye asked, skeptically. "That's not what my father says. He says that the real money comes from having an education and getting by on brains not bronze."
Ye enjoyed soccer, it was why he begged his parents to allow him to attend the summer camp. But making a life out of it was out of the question. He parents wanted him to get an education and, not rely on his physical abilities but rely on his knowledge instead.
"I like soccer, just can't picture making a living from it."
"Well, I think that's being close minded." Mary said. "Anyone can make a decent living from almost anything. You just don't have to be book smart and obtain an education at college to make a good living."
"Yeah, like I want to go into music production when I get old." Edward excitedly shared with the group.
Desperate to get away from the topic now Edward changed the subject. Telling everyone how Viggo called Cameron Smith fat on his orientation. Viggo's horrified that anyone would bring it up and, Cynthia is shocked that her son did such a thing.
Viggo gives a nervous laugh and tries to explain. But Ye will have non of that. He was starting to warm up to Viggo, but no one calls his (hopefully) soon to be girlfriend/wife and mother of his children fat!
"That's just wrong. You don't go around calling girl's fat. I learned that from my mom!" Edward explains. Ye wants to beat some sense into Viggo.
Viggo realized how totally screwed he is. He hasn't even started school yet and he's a social pariah.
But Cynthia assured him that he would not be a social outcast and he would see once the new school year starts.
The next morning Ye was still angry by what Viggo did so, he wasn't paying much attention to Mary as she droned on and on about her boyfriend.
One last round of soccer practice.
Edward may not be able to get past Mary's defense.
But he's able to get past Cynthia's!
And before the cab pulls up to take them back to the airport Mary shares with them a story she learned when she visited the Far East as a child. Ye really enjoyed it! He really could wait to travel back to his ancestor's home land.
(notes: Not much really went on at camp. It's a camp, lol. And Mary was the only girl interested in soccer this summer, plus she has no romantic feeling towards any of the boys of Riverdale. But that could be because she has a honey in Simmington Hills. Soccer camp will happen every summer, not sure if I'll update it though. We'll see.
I though it was hilarious how the topic turned from money to Viggo calling Cameron fat. Did you see his face? After that Ye just walked around with Viggo in his thought bubble all the time. He stopped talking to him too.)
