Marshall was up and preparing breakfast for himself when he heard a knock at the door. He opened it to see two guys dressed in black suites and sunglasses.

“You must be from the school.” He answered dryly before they could introduce themselves. “We talked on the phone a few days ago.”

“Close the damn door, Marshall, you’re letting the heat out.” His mom yelled from the living room.

“Won’t you come in?” Marshall asked sarcastically. The two men came in and waited by the door. “You have an hour to pack and say good bye.”

“I’m already packed, I’ll be down in a few minutes” He answered, eager to get out. He finished his breakfast and ran upstairs to change and grab his suitcase. He changed into his usual plain black tee shirt and black jeans. He put on a black and white checkered belt and matching bracelet. He threw his music player into the suitcase and did a quick look around to see if he was forgetting anything. Nope he had it all. He grabbed his toothbrush and other bath products from the bathroom and packed them then went down stairs.

“Ready.” He said as he met the men at the door.
“Aren’t you going to say goodbye?” one of them asked him.

“I guess.” He sighed as if being asked to do a chore. He walked to the other room and stood at the entrance.

“Okay, I’m leaving. See you guys whenever this thing is over.” He called to them.

“Yeah, yeah, have fun at camp.” His mom muttered without looking away from the TV.

“Yeah, make sure you write.” His dad mumbled.

He sighed, turned and walked out of the room to the guys from the school.

“Let’s get the hell out of here.” He groaned as he picked up his suitcase and they all left.

He got in the car and watched the coastal city disappear behind them as they drove south to the school. He shed a single tear, not because he was going to miss the life he was leaving behind, but because he wasn’t. He took out his headphones, put them on and closed his eyes. It was a long trip south to the school, he might as well get some sleep.

Marshall woke as the car was pulling up to the school. It was a prison. Razor wire, cement walls, guard towers and everything.

“Well, I went to a public school, should be about the same.”He muttered.

The car came to a stop and he got out and pulled his suitcase out with him. He entered the building and the two men went away to do whatever it was they did with their time. He walked up to the check-in desk.
“Excuse me.” he said to the unpleasant looking lady behind the bulletproof glass. She looked up. “Hi, I’m Marshall Stevens.”

“Ah, yes Mr. Stevens.” She said as she rummaged through a stack of paper work on her desk looking for his file. “It’s good to see you.” She said as she finally found it. He hoped that she was just making conversation and not making a really bad joke. “You’ll be in room 119A with Jurou Kawaguchi.”

“A roommate?” he thought while the lady rattled off a bunch of rules about times and staff only areas. “I don’t remember them saying anything about roommates.”

“Will there be anything else?” the lady asked breaking his tiny freak out moment

“Ah, yeah, I was told there was a pool, what’re the rules on that?” He asked.

“Yes, the pool is open and a lifeguard is on duty from 6A.M. to 8 P.M. Students are allowed to use the pool anytime within that period provided they don’t have any classes, there’s no PE classes being taught in the pool and they follow all the posted rules in the pool area.”


“Cool, so is it open today or do we have to wait till later?”

“Yes the pool is open today.”

“Awesome, thanks.”

He walked down the long hallway till he got to the former cell block that was now a dormitory.
“Well at least I’ll be able to go swimming in my free time if I can’t make any friends.” he thought to himself as he wandered down the hall until he found the room he was assigned. He opened the door and saw his new roommate unpacking his stuff and placing it into one of the two small dressers.

“Eh, hi. I’m Marshal your new roommate. You must be Jurou.” The guy turned around and stood up straight. He was only a couple inches taller, but he could tell by his eyes that he was a little bit older than him. He was mesmerized by his red-ish copper eyes. He had never seen anyone with eyes like that before. He shook his head clear for a second and turned so as not to be entranced again. “Don’t worry, you won’t even know I’m here; no one ever does.” He said with a slight hint of melodramatic sadness at the last part. He threw his suitcase on the available bed and started unpacking his own stuff into the empty dresser. He grabbed his black swim trunks and a matching towel went into the bathroom and changed. Swimming was Marshall’s favorite way to clear his mind, it always made him feel free being in the water with nothing and no one to make him feel bad about himself. He knew it was going to be the best part about this school. He came out with the towel around his neck in his trunks. “So, I’m gonna go hit the pool, if you wanna go."

Michael was lead through the front doors of the "School" with two of the three men that had brought him there carrying his ample suitcases. He let out a breath, softly as he looked around the entrance with great displeasure. Bland. The whole place was bland, hardly any decor and with little to show that people would be living there and learning. Michael did see a few others a dark haired girl was lead back to the rooms. Michael smiled warmly in her direction in hopes of at least establishing an aquaintance.

Restlessness took grip over Michael as the woman behind the desk went on about rules that Michael was sure not to follow. His honey gold eyes roamed anywhere but at her hoping to get a grasp on what the other students where to be like. His only experience at a school with others was at highschool. He assumed it would be similar the only major difference being they'd be dorm mates as well. Michael blushed slightly at the thought. Everyone knew the shenanigans that teens and young adults got into when not under strict supervision. He was reminded though of the reason they where all there as he brushed a small white downy feather from his sleeve. They all had powers there. His curiosity increased as he thought of the possibility of meeting others with very different and maybe even similar abilities as his own.

"Did you hear me, young man? Your room is 115A"

Michael blinked and nodded, then he leaned his elbow on the desk. "Am I going to have roomates? I don't do well with people who snore or have bad body odor. So.....if someone comes in and you think they might maybe have one of those..."

"The bedding arrangements are permanent, Mr. Haddock." The woman said, quite unimpressed.

Michael exhaled. "Right.....ooook. To Room 115A"

The two men looked at each other and put Michael's bags on the floor. "We've got other students to pick up."
With that they turned and walked back out the doors, one of them chuckling audibly and shaking his head.

"Great. Sure. Thanks....I DON'T BELIEVE YOU!" Michael called after them. He huffed, again and took up his backpack, putting it over his shoulders before gathering the two heavy suitcases in both slender arms. He grunted and trembled before heading down the hall muttering about the ridiculousness of it all.

It seemed the rooms where arranged like in a hotel with all the 100 rooms on the first floor of the dorm wing . Michael passed all the rooms that came before 115, struggling with his heavy bags as he went. "This better be good. So far this place seems little more than a glorified....prison..."

Michael stood before his room. He looked either way down the hall at the others just getting situated.

He didn’t stick around for an answer, he could guess what the response would be. He didn’t let it get him down, though, he was used to never being noticed and such. He walked down the hall ‘til he saw the small map on the wall with the little “You are here” arrow on it. He quickly scanned the map and found where the pool was located and headed off in that direction down the hall, his sandals clacking as he walked through the halls. It was a typical situation: he walks down the hall wearing just his shorts and a towel around his neck, pale as could be (when your whole body is photo-inert, you can’t exactly get a good tan), sticking out like a sore thumb and no one even looks twice at him. He finds the door to the pool and pushes it open. The smell of chlorine hitting his nose with the distinct burning aroma. He looks up and sees the life guard up in the big chair and that‘s the only person in the whole room. He walks a quick lap from one end to the other checking the depth written on the sides. He goes to the deep end, 12 feet, and tests the temperature. It’s perfect. He tosses his towel and sandals on a lounge chair. He dives in and instantly it’s as though all his troubles and worries are washed away. “Woo!” he shouts as he comes back up breaking the surface of the water. He starts casually swimming from one end to the other doing lap after lap. “Hey where’d you go?” the lifeguard shouted suddenly. Marshall looked down at himself and saw that he had turned invisible again without trying to. It was weird to see the water displaced without actually seeing his body there. He closed his eyes and tried to focus on being visible and slowly he rematerialized. “Oh, you can disappear. Don’t do that in the pool, it’s dangerous.”

“Sorry, I have a hard time controlling it sometimes.”

“At least he knew I was here.” he thought to himself. After that he had had enough swimming for the day and was now in a sufficiently good mood. He went back to his room, again unnoticed, and took a shower. He came out of the bathroom in his normal clothes and plopped down on his bed. He looked around the room. “Damn they didn’t even give us a TV. In some prisons there’s TVs in the cells.” He pulled out his music player that was almost dead from the car ride and plugged it into the charger. He turned it on and began listening to his music and closed his eyes.

Michael opened the door to his room. It really did look like a cell door to a cell room. There where two rickety cots in that cramped space and the floor was made of concrete. Michael's disappointment grew to new measures. as he slowly turned around to look at the surroundings. They did give them a desk. One desk to share however and one lamp without a shade.

There where two rickety cots in that cramped space and the floor was made of concrete. Michael's disappointment grew to new measures. as he slowly turned around to look at the surroundings. They did give them a desk. One desk to share however and one lamp without a shade. "oooooh god.....you've gotta be kidding me."

Suddenly a determined expression appeared on his face. "Right.....It's going to need a lot of work....but I think....we can turn this around." he murmured. He left the door wide open to the hall as he dragged his suitcases to the bed on the left. He hesitantly knelt and peered under the beds. Luckily there where no rat nests or holes into the walls but there where quite a few spider webs. Michael straightened up. "A scrub....this place needs a good scrub...but first I need to change."

Michael shed his jacket with the tears in the back from where his wings burst out earlier in the day, he took off the t-shirt underneath that was also torn, shaking his head as he examined the damage. " I need to learn to take my shirt off first next time. These where such good clothes." He folded them neatly on the bed and scrounged for an oversized tank to wear while he's sprucing up the place. He kicked the door shut behind himself afterwards as he went about replacing his pants with old jeans and his shoes with sneakers. With that he left the cell to search for a supply closet with cleaning materials. When he left the room he glanced into rooms that had their door wide open, mostly out of curiosity. He spotted the guy sitting on his bed listening to music but decided not to interrupt him. He didn't think he wanted to help him anyways, it was no big deal. He was kind of cute though. Michael made note of that, as was his roommate. 'Room 119, huh?.' He thought to himself...

Finally Michael found the supply closet, he entered and grabbed a handful of supplies as well as a mop and one of those yellow rolling buckets. He also found a single can of decent smelling aerosol that would help rid the stale musky sent of the old room. It looked comical, Michael trekking back down the hall pushing the bucket along with his foot. He hummed quietly as he went by, this time not paying much mind to 119 as he went back to his room.

He set everything small enough on the desk and started with the floors, tying a purples scarf on his head like a cleaner, sparse white hairs sticking out from underneath. He snapped on yellow rubber gloves so as not to be harmed by cleaning chemicals, or grime and got started. He played music as he scrubbed the floors occasionally singing along to it, the sounds and scents of his cleaning flowing freely out the open door.

Marshall woke from the commotion from the room down the hall. He took his headphones off and listened . He got up and went into the hall where he was blasted with the smell of cleaning detergent and air freshener. He begrudgingly walked toward the source of the odors and music. He came to an open room with a tentacled young man and a girl standing in the doorway, the guy toweling himself off and another guy mopping the floor.

“Eh, hello?” he said cautiously as he stood next to the guy with the tentacles. They all turned to look at him, that was a good sign. “I just heard singing and smelled weird chemicals, figured I should check and see if it was music and cleaning or if I was missing some sort of party.” He chuckled lightly “Looks like I got my hopes up for nothing. While I’m here, I might as well help. Though I don’t like to get my hands dirty.” He grinned. Using his telekinesis, he pulled the mop from the hands of the guy with the silvery white hair and began to mop the room rather quickly and effectively without stepping foot in the room. “I take it you’re a bit of a clean freak?” He rhetorically asked the guy. “My name’s Marshall. I can move things with my mind … and turn invisible.”

Utrien smiled and just let the Michael greet the guest. He noticed the slight disgust in the girls face so he retracted his tentacles. He didn't like judgemental people, but he doesn't like to cause discomfort or conflict normally.

He turned to greet the newcomers.

"Hello Marshall, it's great to meet people that doesn't seem to be afraid or angry at me in here. My name's Utrien, great to meet you," He smiled reassuringly to Marshall.

"Mam, i can't help if i don't know where you want to go."He said with an serene expression. He wanted to help, but he needed directions.

Not wanting them to think of his powers as just tentacles, he decided to give a demonstration of his powers.

"As you can see," he extended his hand; a spaghetti thin tentacle sprouted from his finger and the tentacle quickly slashed at the broom handle. "That's my power," Just as he finished talking, the broom handle fell down in two pieces from the straight, neat cuts delivered by the tentacle. Utriens smile faltered."Oh, it was just supposed to nick it...I guess i went overboard." He admitted with a closed eyed, sheepish smile.

“Whoa, that’s so cool.” He almost shouted at the sight of the broom breaking. Then he saw the look on his face. “I sometimes have a hard time controlling my powers, too. Just today the lifeguard at the pool got mad at me for turning invisible in the water.” He smiled as all kinds of thoughts went running through his head, mostly excitement at the fact that he was making friends or at least coming closer than he ever had before.

"I'm Michael, some call me Mike. You can call me whatever you like."
The statement as well as those honey colored eyes burned right into him. Damn the things went through his head with those words. He shook his head and cleared his mind a bit. He changed his thoughts to wondering what the guy’s powers were, as he hadn’t been around to see them earlier. As his mind came back to the present, he realized he could probably be of some help in opening the door.

“Hey, I can probably help with that.” He said as he followed after the two to the door. He looked at the key hole and focused on the mechanisms inside. In a matter of minutes it clicked and was unlocked. “There you go.” He said with a weird sense of accomplishment that he hadn’t felt very often in the past. He accidentally got himself caught in Mike’s gaze again and tried to turn away before he made an ass of himself. “So, yeah, I guess I’ll go back to my room now, I’ll see you later I guess.”

Michael turned to Marshal as he approached to help with the door. 'So he can unlock doors AND turn invisible. I ought to watch myself with this one.' He thought, though not necessarily with a hint of real caution. He really didn't have anything to hide and if Marshal wanted to look he had no qualms with that. 'Woah! Mike, ease up. You hardly know him CC would tear you a new one if she found out you where fawning over random guys you just met. However, can't deny he is adorbs with that quiet personality.' Michael smiled ever so slightly then fiercely chased the thoughts away.

He clapped his hands together. "Well then. Thank you Marshal, it seems we got your door open....um....miss....." He hesitated, looking to the girl who was to sleep next door to him.

Michael stepped back towards his room. "Tell you guys what. You seem pretty interesting all of you. Once I'm done here and you lot are done unpacking and so on how about we explore this place some. See what nonsense we got ourselves into maybe check out some of these blocked off areas just for curiosity's sake." Michael grinned, a playful and mischievous grin that nevertheless made him look like a sinless angel. "If we can find a way outdoors I'll show you lot my power. It's pretty neat if I do say so myself."

She cheerfully waved goodbye as Cindy headed towards the door. Maya was still a little hungry and sat at the table alone for a little while. With only a few spoonfuls left the girl began to wonder how the food actually tasted. She shattered the illusion and put the fork in her mouth. She honestly imagined it to be a lot worse but it wasn’t a taste she wanted to try again. Suddenly overcome with boredom Maya decided to head back to her room.

The halls were even more lively than before and it seemed friendships were being formed all around. Upon reaching her room Maya was positively surprised. Not only was her roommate finally here, she was in the presence of three pleasant looking boys. One which Maya could swear she saw sleeping on the table with Cindy. The girl which Maya would have the joy of sharing a room with was incredibly beautiful. She had incredible brown hair Maya could only hope for. The boys also had pretty captivating looks. Everyone at the academy seemed so cute to her.

“Hello!,” she said to everyone in the doorway as she walked through, “Nice to meet you all, especially you,” she motioned at the girl. “I’m Maya, I hope we can be good friends.”

Smiling she made her way to the bed to clean it up a little, she left in such a hurry it wasn’t looking the greatest. The people seemed a little busy planning something she wasn’t sure it’d be ok to disturb them. Then again hearing about seeing another power made her pretty excited.

“You guys wouldn’t mind if I tagged along, it gets pretty quiet here all alone?”

Utrien shakes his head good naturedly. 'This boy is going to get into a lot of trouble with that kind personality'he mused. He can't figure out whether it's personal trouble or just plain safety trouble.

As he waves goodbye and heads for his room he said out loud,"I guess i'll see you there."

Chuckling to himself he thought 'Well i sure did meet a lot of interesting people today.'

Marshall was beginning to think he was in over his head. It was as though fate had turned the tables on him. For once he was the one being noticed, not that he didn’t do any noticing of his own. He wasn’t exactly sure how to react in a social situation such as this. Sure, he’d observed others at his old school and what they did in social situations, but never had he been the one who had to do any sort of interacting. Something was compelling him to go against every instinct he had ever developed while going to public school for most of his life, and he was going to make the first move. His heart started racing like a humming bird. He looked back to Mike’s face and brushed his bangs out of his face revealing his own emerald green eyes and he once again was caught in his gaze, but he managed to focus enough to speak.

“So, I’m already unpacked and my roommate doesn’t seem to be in a very talkative mood right now, I could help you unpack if you’d like some help.” He almost choked on the words as he was saying them, his throat got so dry. He really was incredibly socially awkward.

As he had been unpacking his things in his dorm, he heard someone enter. Must be his room mate. At first he continued unpacking his things, sorting them out, thought it would be best to wait a bit before making conversation over something quite drastic that had seemed to happen to them all. Until a male voice spoke up first. That surprised him. So his name was Marshall, that suited him. He stood up straight and turned to see the guy, who seemed to be younger than him seeing as how Jurou was taller.Or perhaps he was just naturally short and was the same age as him, didn't matter. When he turned to get a good look at the male, he noticed Marshall seemed quite, hypnotised by something on Jurou? What was it? Why are you staring? These thoughts ran through his mind until the male broke eye contact, said he was going to the pools? And offered him to join. "Nnnno thanks." Definitely not. No way. He didn't want to look too awkward seeing as how deep water was a big fear of his, and that included big swimming pools full of water. Then the guy left. Jurou became deep in thought as he finished unpacking his things, he placed a picture of his mum, dad and himself as a little kid on his bedside table. It was the only family photo he had that included his mum. Now that she was no longer alive he cherished this photo. Wait a second, how did Marshall know his name? It completely slipped his mind then. Oh well, he would ask him later.

Leaving the dorm, he thought about exploring, he wanted to shift, use his ability but it could become a bit of a pain, because once he shifted back to human well, he would be naked. Of course he couldn't have clothes on when shifting, because if he did, then his clothes would just either lay there on the ground, or on the rare occasion shift with him and well, cats looked a bit funny with clothes on. He wasn't sure where he should go, perhaps follow that guy and see if he ends up going to the pool or not. Jurou could still smell him, his scent left a trail for him to follow, at least it was a pleasant smell unlike other teenage guys who smelled of body odour and sweaty gym socks. Those smells were most unpleasant. Waiting wasn't this stalking? Perhaps he should shift... No no no don't do it. You can't just rock up to the guy as a cat and be like 'hey there'. Because he would have to shift back to human eventually.

So Jurou followed the scent, Marshall seemed quite a bit ahead of him, he couldn't see him at all but he could still smell him, it was difficult to keep track of one smell when so many different smells intertwined and overlapped each other, like obstacles trying to stop him from following the same path. It would be awkward if he lost track of the scent, followed the wrong path and called out Marshall to someone who most certainly was not Marshall. Wow he was such a weirdo. He continued following, avoiding being seen by any people, and hopefully being unnoticed until he finally found Marshall. He was about to call out to him until he saw he had company. Well, he seemed to make friends quite quickly. Although he was a fair distance away, he could hear clearly what they were discussing, any normal human would only see their lips moving and hear probably nothing at all, maybe muffled voices, but he could hear them clearly. "my roommate doesn’t seem to be in a very talkative mood right now" well then, he felt a little more awkward now. He hadn't seemed to make the best first impression. "I guess i'll see you there." See them where? Jurou was most curious now, what were they up to? Oh wait, that guy by the sounds of it was leaving. Which way was he going, what if he passed Jurou and caught him looking like a stalker. Well technically he was being a BIT of a stalker. He needed to do something to avoid the situation, and so quickly, like an idiot, he shifted into an average sized black cat. And well, there goes his clothes. Okay so this wasn't the smartest thing to do. Especially now that he had to somehow carry all the clothes. With much difficulty he managed to throw clothes onto his back by grabbing them with his mouth. He did look fairly large for a domestic looking cat of sorts. His clothes felt more heavy in this form. Now he just need to push his shoes along... How embarrassing.

Jurou managed to make his way over to Marshall and quite confidently he pushed against his leg to get his attention. "Uh hey Marshall can you hold my clothes for me?" He felt so stupid at this point. His same copper red eyes looked up at Marshall hoping he would just casually hold his clothes. Of course no one in their right mind would take a talking cat as natural. And all this just to avoid looking like a stalker.

Before he could receive an answer from Mike about helping him, he received an odd little nudge against his leg. He looked down and saw the most adorable black cat he had ever seen in his life pushing a pair of shoes across the floor. “Uh hey Marshall, can you hold my clothes for me?” Came a voice he didn’t recognize. He looked down at the rather large cat that seemed to know him, then he saw the copper red eyes. He turned and looked back to Mike. “Can you excuse us for a second, I think this is my roommate.” He picked up the shoes and took the pile of clothes off the cat’s back. He walked back to their room and the cat was following close behind. When they were both in the room he put the clothes on the counter in the bathroom and the cat went in without a word. Marshall shut the door to give him some privacy. The door opened a few minutes later and there stood Jurou.

“So, do I even want to ask why you would change into a cat and walk down the halls when you can’t carry your own clothes? Or was it something you couldn’t control? If so, I’m sorry, it’s just that your timing was …off.”

Utrien paused and froze. He couldn't believe it, he turned back astounded. Was that and honest to goodness cat?

His eyes wide and his mouth in an O shape; Utrien shot down the hallway back to where he was. He took a leap, scooped up the cat and slid on his back; the cat now lifted in the air.

"OH MY GOODNESS YOU'RE A CAT. There are animals here," He proceeded to cuddle the cat, not knowing that it can speak or that it was a human. "That makes me so happy, i might actually squeal," He finished with a smile and a delighted laugh.

Anyone who have met Utrien prior to this might have been shocked. The shy, reserved Utrien is currently on the floor cuddling a cat with an elated and beaming expression.

Michael stared at Utrien, bewildered. Not only was Marshal's roommate a cat but now this? Michael opened his mouth to speak, hesitantly. "U-utrien....um....if that's really Marshall's roommate...I-I don't think he'd want to be picked up like that...."

He put his hands out in front of himself, and bit his lip. He glanced back in Ghost's direction unsure what to do about all this. Michael didn't know a ton about cats but what he did know was that most, that weren't also human didn't like to be lifted and cuddled so abrubtly. In fact most would scratch a stranger if they approached too abruptly.

Utrien arm hovers in the air as Marshall's apparent roommate follows him and changes. A feeling of disappointment welled up, yet not enough to dampen his mood. He sat up Indian style. Looks like he could afford to be more involved with everyone. Utrien did an adorable child like hip swivel to show his happiness.

Maya sat on her bed watching the conundrum surrounding the “cat” problem. She didn’t want to laugh at the boys’ situation but she couldn’t help it as a loud giggle escaped her mouth. Everyone around her had a totally different reaction to the cute feline in her doorway. The boy with white hair while hesitant was right which made Utrien’s reaction the most entertaining as Maya imagined the person inside the cat’s body wasn’t the happiest. Marshall, as the cat called him, seemed to handle the situation pretty well as he picked up the clothes from its little mouth.

She hoped as soon as they came back she’d see the cat’s human form. It could mean yet another unusual friend.

Well it was a relief that Marshall so casually took his clothes and shoes for him, what a nice guy. His copper red eyes widened however as he found himself suddenly being lifted into the air as the world around him spun for a moment. Then a loud voice rang through his sensitive feline ears. Oh god. What had he done?! This was the opposite of what he wanted! Stupid stupid stupid, he felt really stupid, he wanted to avoid being seen by the blonde male but instead it did the opposite, like some kind of hunting dog the guy seemed to have locked onto Jurou, lift him up and cuddle him. "Ahhh! Holy shit please let go!" Jurou squirmed in the male's arms, and although it was tempting to shift back into his human form, he didn't think people took public nudity very well, no not very well at all. Whiny meows would be heard escaping from Jurou's lips as he managed to eventually squeeze out of the blonde's arms and follow behind Marshall.

Oh no he was following them. "Go go go!" Jurou called out to Marshall as he easily over took the guy, running right past him and into the dorm, his feline body arched in a defensive position. He watched as Marshall put his clothes down and the door closed behind him. That didn't go as well as he thought it would at all, nope. "Thank yoooou." Jurou cooed as he frantically shifted back into his Human form and grabbed his clothes, casually putting them on. He didn't feel uncomfortable being naked around anyone really, he just respected that no one wanted to see someone walk around nude. But what was really important now was that he was being questioned. Uh oh. "Uh yes well, you see. I have a logical explanation for that. Yep. I do have an answer, one that makes sense." Yep, keep sounding more demented and you won't have any friends. "Well I was just looking for you and to avoid ah, people, I shifted. I find it easier to get around in that form. AndalsobecauseIwasfollowingyouanddidn'twanttobeseen." He said that last part particularly really fast then finished getting dressed. "ANYWAY I see you've made some friends already, some rather, interesting." He said, hinting towards the blonde who had reacted excitedly when seeing a simple cat. Oh right that guy was probably still waiting outside. Jurou left the bathroom and opened their dorm room door. "Helloooo, blondie?" He called out.

Using his telekinesis he slammed the door shut before Utrien could answer and before Jurou could leave.

“You wanna repeat that last part about following me and maybe explain WHY you were following me?” He asked through clenched teeth while holding the door shut with his telekinesis.

Utrien spun around to look at Maya and Michael.

He beamed and smiled a closed eyes smile. "I'm sorry about that, but as you can see i really love animals,"

He pointed with his head towards Marshall and Jurou's dorm room. "Although it seems that i have scared him away. Shame, i liked him," he chuckled "Might be biased though. Can't help that i like nature i guess, basically grew up in the forest." He gazed at the door with a pacified expression, waiting for them to emerge so that he could explain and hopefully salvage the situation.

He laid on the floor and promptly fell asleep. He hoped no one would step on him, but that's something he would have to take as he chose to sleep on the floor.

He recounted what happened today. 'He got to see an animal, made friends and didn't need to eat that slop in the cafeteria. Today was a good day,' he concluded with a smile.

Panther took off running until he smelt the cat, Panther being friendly with cats began wimpering at the door, wanting to play.

Judy held her dog back, and knocked on the door

“I’m not opening that door ‘til you answer my question. Why were you following me?”
He continued to hold the door shut, though he was getting a bit agitated by the smell of dog. He wasn’t a fan of dogs, mostly because he didn’t really understand them. But he did know cats, so he did his best to get the information he wanted while trying not to make him feel cornered. He tried to calm his voice. “Look, I just think it’s a little … different that someone like …you would even take notice of me, let alone follow me. I just want to know why, then you can go, okay?”

Michael pursed his lips as the cat and Marshal disappeared down the hall. He smiled to himself as he returned to his room to finish cleaning, this time turning his music down so as not to interrupt the other students. The rest of his cleaning went smoothly as the floors had already been done. He pulled a fuzzy purple carpet from one of his suitcases and laid it over the floor so that everything between the two beds was covered in soft carpet. Michael then flipped his matress and put his pale blue sheets on his bed followed by the thick comforter. The comforter was dark purple like the carpet but had lighter purple fleur de lis design pattern going across it. He unpacked his pillow as well casting the one they gave to the students aside. It looked stained and gross. Michael wasn't about to put his head on that. He smoothed out his covers carefully then moved his bed away from the wall so that he could clean that too. Cleaning the wall wasn't necessary, but Michael was going to be spending who knows how long in that room. He wanted his own germs to be the first to inhabit it. Clean out any history this room might have had so he could make new memories in it.

Michael then began tacking posters to his walls. Anime posters, K-pop posters, male models in speedos and graphic design. There wasn't much wall left when He was done but what he did leave was a square big enough to hang a white board/tacky board for class lists and impromptu meetings right over the headboard of his bed. He tacked a Hetalia themed calender to the tacky board and grinned. Things where coming out well. He tapped his chin and turned to the desk. He would have to make something later to act as a lampshade for the lamp. He didn't have anything on him. Everything looked good though. At last Michael pushed his suitcases underneath his bed. Straightening up, Michael smiled. His thoughts drifting to Marshall. He wasn't sure what to think of him yet. He was eager to learn more though. Blush reddened his cheeks momentarily as he recalled the lingering stares Marshal left for him.

"Hmmmmm mysterious boy.....you leave me with questions..." Michael sighed as he flopped back onto his bed, kicking off his shoes. He sighed and closed his eyes for a moment, stretching leisurely across his bed, toes curling and stretching. His bones popped lightly and Michael sighed. His thoughts left Marshal as he exhaled and a soft breeze stirred in the small room. It was as if someone left the door open to the outside. The breeze smelled and tasted fresh like the breeze off the trees and grass of a moist warm summer feild. Michael imagined he was outside in the warm glow of the sun, his wings outstretched. The feeling of the winds causing each feather to stir in it's place, shifting the pale strands of his cloud white hair. He could feel it too. In the room a breeze ebbed and flowed causing the posters to flutter and rise.
