The sound of knocking roused Will from her sleep, though it had only been a light slumber after a night of restless stirring and bad dreams. As she dutifully pulled herself from bed, Will caught the occasional sounds of others waking coming from the rooms either side of her. Alveraz's booming voice rarely failed to wake her peers.

A quick shower took less than two minutes and Will was smoothly pulling her uniform on over skin smelling faintly of citrus. Her hair was wet, but all it took was a moment of flame - her hair turning into a Medusa's nest of flicking flames - and it was dry. The elastic around her wrist made quick work of tying the shoulder-length strands up, now back to her normal dark brown. Grabbing up her leather jacket, Will headed out.

She stretched as she walked, hands above her head and pulled straight up, arching backwards ever so slightly. Some mornings Will woke up 30 min early so she could do a proper stretch routine before the training day properly started. It helped settle her mind for the day and keep her from feeling stiff. This morning the yoga had been skipped in favour of a little extra sleep.

As Will entered the control room she gazed at those who had arrived before her, nodding towards those she was on good terms with and giving only a polite smile to the others. Will came to stand beside Lucas, a warmer smile sent his way even if she didn't feel the need to start idle chit-chat. Will may be able to get up early enough, but it took her slightly longer to feel like talking.

Kip stumbled into the room looking frazzled and only partially dressed. He darted back out and reappeared a moment later with the previously missing shoes, making some comment to Sunhi and Enzo about being late and Alveraz. Will had the distinct impression that in his haste, Kip had missed the fact that the agent was standing with them in the room, perhaps partially blocked by other team members, but very clearly there.

Will cleared her throat and turned to the agent, saying clearly "Good morning, agent Alveraz." It was loud enough for Kip to hear and Will watched from the corner of her eye as the boy froze partway through righting his previously inside-out shirt, having realised his mistake.

Kip pulled his shirt on correctly and turned to their instructor, an easy smile plastered on his face. "Alveraz...Al.. Nice to see you. I was just joking about the beep boop thing. I'm actually, like, perfectly on time." The boy ran a hand through his hair, a tell of his true nerves that only those who knew him well might catch.

Will just rolled her eyes and settled back to wait for the meeting to begin.
