The warning bells rang for the begining of the classes as the students started chattering as they walked inside the building toward their classes. As the school grounds slowly emptied out, silence came along until one person came through the front gates.
Ryu had just moved here on his own as he looked at the building and let out a sigh. "A so called "Oaises in a Desert" it seems." He spoke out as the building was nicely designed, making anyone forget that a massive war was on the loose. The reason was because the Academy was at the center of the city. The closer you get to the borders, the more of the damage you see. Broken buildings, people on the street, and Mecha Frames patroling around to "keep order". Ryu could feel the troubles that people went through when he went by there of how bad it was. Only those with money or connections could have a normal life.
Walking up into the building, he made his way to his first class as the teacher waited for him at the door. "Ah, there you are, Ryu. Please, wait here so I can introduce you to the class." Standing by the door as the teacher walked in to settle the class down, Ryu wondered how this place would be like. He could use his power to sense all that, but he wasn't much on overusing an ability that connects him with others to much. Breaking from his trian of thought, he heard the teach call him in as he entered the classroom.
Standing by the teacher's desk, he introduces himself. "My name is Ryu Tenshin. I just moved around here." As the teach took over the greeting from there on, he looked through the class room at his new fellow students.
SHe kept walking through the empty halls until she reached her class noticing someone new was being introduced. She tried to slip into class, hoping the teacher hadn't seen her.
(Sorry for the short post, had to go)
Max wiped the grease off of his gloves and onto his work apron, walking over to the man. "Well, Mr. Robtson, you sure did get in on a wreck, didn't you?" He said, trying to keep the coversation light-hearted. "I'm glad you're okay. And your car's damages are not going to be perminant. Though, they might be a little costlier than you wanted them to be, I'm sure pop won't mind cutting the price back just a bit for you; since you're such a regular." He said, looking back towards the vehicle. The front end was badly dinged up. "It's honestly just because of the framework that'll need to be done. Internally, only the containers for fluids are damaged, and we won't charge you maybe ten dollars for those."
The man sighed. "Yeah. Thanks, Max. What are the probability of we getting it out of here today?" He said dully.
"About as high as you might think. We've got a lot of business these days. Max responded, returning to the car to look it over once more.
"That's a 'fat chance', isn't it?" The man said with another sigh.
"Well... if we had the parts ,we could get it out in a few hours. But we just don't keep parts lying around. Or at least not car framework..." He said, shrugging.
After about an hour or so passed, Max was outside again, gazing towards the school, waiting for the class change bell to ring, as it always did. He really was waiting on his father to finish giving their customer the dues on his repairs. However, his mind wandered. What was school here really like...?
As the class, went along, Ryu hardly did anything, just following along abit with the course. When the end of the class came along, Ryu just silently picked up his bag and began to head out the door. He didn't really have anything to do around here, so he decided to look around the school grounds abit.
The teacher looked at Namina and thought about how she should put her detention. Then a light bulb hit him. He knew she didn't like to stay at school and if sshe was to lead someone around she would, for sure, have to stay at school until her buddy was done. "I want you to show Ryu around the school and help him get to his classes and just make him feel welcome here." The teacher grinned happy with his brillant discuisson.
Naminas jaw dropped "You have to be kidding me!" She yelled and the teacher shook his head with a polite smile. Namina stood up straight, popped her jacket and walked out of the room to go find Ryu. Her face showed a wall of anger as she searched for him.
As Namina came around a corner, he could easily spot the engery look in her face, even without his power of detecting it. Something was wrong, and he did not want to stick around for it, that's all he knew. So, he started getting up off the ground and began to dust he pants abit to find a new place to realx. Picking up his bag off from against the tree, he started heading off.
She swiftly moved closer to him her body moving so elegantly and gentle. She body said she wouldn't hurt a fly, while her eyes told a different story. As she got closer to Ryu she half hesitated to make sure he would be ok with her coming near. It was the only time she lowered her guard a bit.
Not far off, just outside the run down part of the city, a group of people have gathered in a warehouse, weapons and stolen Mechs around them.
"Alright, we got everything set?"
"Just about, only need the signal from him as to where the tunnel is at."
"Once we're in, remember to attack all resouce, weapon, and goverment targets. The more we get, the weaker the city will be for the next step."
The group of people split up, each heading to get equipment and ready themselves for a sneak strike on the city.
"But, if you don't mind I have a quick question.." She felt that she might be able to trust him but she had to make sure...
