"This is just the meeting room, it's not like I sleep in here," Winter shook her head. They really though that she was being imprisoned and isolated from everyone, didn't they? Even before, Winter had access to any book or game she wanted. Privilages were only taken away if she misbehaved, which Winter was pretty certain any parent would do to their child anyway. Similar to grounding, only sometimes a bit more extreme. Letters? "I don't need to see those," she said quickly. She didn't want to see what her classmates thought of her. Did they think they understood her now that the truth was out? Why she avoided going to class and spent most of her time in the music room? Why she avoided talking to anyone or making friends? Were they afraid of her?

They went to Winter's room, Claude getting water for all of them. Winter took the glass he brought her, her hands shaking slightly. She took a sip of water and placed it on the night stand, ice forming where her hand had touched. Claude wanted to know why Winter invited him to come, despite the fact that she had said that she hated him. She couldn't recall ever saying outright that she hated Claude, but she had thought it plenty of times. "Because the worst already came to pass." Winter replied with a shrug, "at first I blamed you, since the day after I met you, everything started going downhill, but since the truth is out and the world already knows, there's no point in trying to push you away anymore. Besides, I knew if I invited Elise, you would find a way to come anyhow."

Plus, Winter had been explicitly told to cut off contact with Claude, it wasn't as though she had done it purposely. "No, I don't want to talk to Gordon, not yet at least." She said quickly, wondering if it was too soon. Besides, there was no way security would let Gordon through the gates. She would have to invite all of the press, otherwise they would wonder if Gordon was being enticed or bribed. Winter shook her head, pushing the thoughts from mind. She had other things she needed to worry about and focus on, like seeing if Elise had the same issue with her Heir that Winter did. Why had Yuuki waited so long to reach out to her? It had been four years since the accident and only within the last month had he appeared in her dreams.

"We don't have to talk about it in front of him if he doesn't know-" but Elise turned to Claude and gave him a brief overview of everything. Explaining that she had found the sun and wind, that she herself was the rain and that there was a tiny voice in the back of her mind, pressuring her. The same voice Winter had, only it probably wasn't Yuuki that was bugging Elise. She couldn't help but smile when Elise told Claude to essentially shut up and listen. Her brow furrowed when Elise mentioned 012, that he was essentially stalking her. "I take it, it started sometime after you rescued me?" No doubt they were following Elise around in order to protect her from any unseen threats.

"I'll try and get him to knock it off," but Winter had little to no influence on the inner workings of the Chrysanthemum. The only real decisions she got to make were when she woke up and got to go to sleep, what she wanted to wear or eat, otherwise, her life was controlled by the government. Essentially a helicopter parent, only with more people involved and more parents than Winter could count on both hands. Winter listened as Elise explained, that Ame would come at night and bug her, that she was begging her to save Winter and threatening her the same way Winter had been. Winter listened carefully and only responded when Elise asked about her own Heir.

"His name is Yuuki," her voice was soft. She had never told anyone about him before, "he appears seemingly at random, mostly when I'm feeling emotional. Sometimes in my dreams to try and teach me about what I've apparently inherited." She tried to think of anything she may have left out. "This only happened because I keep rejecting it. I don't want this power," Winter said softly. "But unless I accept it, it's just going to worse." She needed to learn to control it, or else she risked losing the rest of her body to the ice.
