There is a Greek festival and they meet at the booth on Ancient Greece
They meet at a Renaissance faire type gig for ancient Greece. Achilles is in charge of games and staging ancient battles. Patroclus works at the nurses station giving demonstrations of anicient Greek medicine and bandaging small wounds.
Patroclus has somehow found himself on the track team, where he meets Achilles. He can’t run fast, and Achilles helps him with the hurdles. In the end he figures he’s better off on the sidelines, cheering them on.
Their school is putting on a play of *insert any ancient Greek tale*, and Achilles and Patroclus both find themselves auditioning.
