Ability:
Nova is the Elemental Witch, whose dominant Element is Fire. Also called pyrokinesis, agnikinesis, or fire manipulation, she can control and generate all aspects of the energy form, and even shape it into objects she needs, such as a weapon, a shield, or a wall. Nova can also control the temperature of the fire, from an orange flame to a white hot flame, and the flames are affected by the elements around her, such as hydrogen, copper, or lithium. This changes the colour of the flames. Unfortunately, the use of the flames burns her, and she is not immune to fire or smoke - using her ability will harm her. Losing control of her power unconsciously is also a huge problem, as it burns her and can destroy her surroundings with ease. However, Nova is resistant to fire - it will not burn her as much as it may burn others.

Strengths:
  • Can stand up for herself with ease
  • Neat freak - always has things organized and in place
  • Trustworthy - is VERY good at keeping secrets and telling white lies
  • Adrenaline junkie - Nova is unafraid of most things, and won't hesitate to do something if she deems it necessary - even if it's dangerous.

Weaknesses/Flaws
  • Sometimes, Nova is unable to keep her anger under control
  • Night Terrors - Nova often doesn't sleep due to nightmares
  • Cannot cook
  • Has Social Anxiety
  • Burns herself when using her powers
  • Has Altophobia

Likes:
  • Chocolate. She's addicted to the stuff!
  • Foxes
  • Her Coven
  • The Woods
  • Exciting books, movies, and trips. It's all for the adrenaline!

Dislikes:
  • Soppy romance stories
  • Bullies
  • Heights!
  • Fire
  • Being dirty
  • Disappointing others

Secrets:
  • November caused a huge fire that killed her father and seriously injured her brother. She doesn't remember this event.
  • She has a twin brother, whom she misses terribly
  • Is afraid of using her power

Quirks:
  • Has a very sensitive nose
  • Loves the rain
  • Believes in ghosts
  • Can speak Russian fluently
  • Lactose Intolerant

Hair Colour:Her hair is golden blonde in colour, with white and sand coloured highlights mixed in. Her roots are slightly darker than the rest of her hair.
Eye Colour: November's eyes are a deep, bright blue, like the ocean, or the sky. A mix of greens and blues come into the mix, leaving a strange colour that would remind somebody of tropical waters.
Height: November is 5 ft and 9 inches tall.
Weight: November weighs approximately 9 st and 3 lbs.
Distinctive Marks:
Nova has no tattoos or piercings, but she has several scars. Her hands are scarred from burns, where she has used her power, and she has a scar just above her hairline on her left side, where she fell through a window and cut her head badly.
Appearance:
Nova is a slim and elegant girl, who carries herself with a regal quality and an air of importance. She is tanned, unlike the rest of her family, and has blonde hair. She is not curvy at all, which she doesn't mind at all, and has little to no muscle on her. Her neck is long and her head is held high, and she often accentuates this by adding a necklace or scarf to her outfits, which suit her very well. She is toned and holds herself straight and tall, and she could be described as tall, due to long limbs. Her fingers are long, and her knuckles prominent, something Nova detests.

Nova has a heart-shaped face, which is slightly rounded in the cheeks. Her eyebrows are full, are rarely plucked or shaped, and are darker than the rest of her hair. Her eyes are almond shaped, and are almost always ringed with mascara. She never wears makeup, apart from mascara. Her nose is small, but lacks definition in the bridge, but is flat and smooth. The tip of her nose is angled slightly downwards. Her lips are full, and her Cupid's Bow is distinctive, but she doesn't have too much in the way of definition.

November's hair is very long, reaching to just above her belly button. The ends of her hair are slightly split-ended, and need the occasional trim. She has a long side fringe, which sweeps across her forehead lightly and mixes in with her other hair, although it is obvious it is there as it is a lot shorter than the rest of her hair. It constantly blows in from of her eyes and she is constantly brushing it out of her face.

November's clothing style is very loose, and often in pastel colours such as white, cream, or beige. She prefers skinny jeans and a t-shirt to skirts, although she may pair things with light cardigans. She almost always wears some sort of glove to cover her hands, and hates wearing high heels. Sometimes, in summer, she wears sundresses, but may pair it with converse. She never wears sandals or extremely clothes, and never under-dresses or shows too much skin. Nova almost always wears her hair down, but sometimes it is twisted into an elegant, but messy, bun or even braided.




Image
Personality:
{Friendly, self-respecting, shy, protective, fiery, intelligent}
Nova is an incredibly friendly, kind-hearted, and sweet young woman. However, it's almost impossible to get her to talk to you. Her social anxiety often cripples her and prevents her from speaking out, but once she decides to trust you, she's reliable, loyal, and anything you could want in a friend. She often gets uncomfortable in those first few days of knowing someone new, and this is often given away by her habit of fiddling. Whether it's twiddling her thumbs or the hem of her shirt, it is quite obvious if she is uncomfortable.

Although Nova is protective, loyal, and a complete sweetheart towards her friends, she is not afraid to say no. She is self-respecting and does not have a problem with saying what she feels is right. She does not tolerate being used by anyone, and she will quickly make it known if she feels that way. If it isn't fair, it's a no-brainer to her. The same goes in relationships.

Nova, by nature, is a fiery spirit. She often finds it difficult to keep her anger under control, and in combination with her protective nature, arguments can often start, and she can come off as over-protective. However, people who are close to her know that if they tell her to lay off, she will back down, although she may still be fuming for hours afterwards.

November is a very intelligent and cunning young woman, and enjoys a good sense of humour. She enjoys telling jokes to cheer others up, and sometimes even practical jokes on her Coven members. However, it is more likely that she will use her head to help solve a problem than tell a joke or think up a prank to pull.

History:
November was born to Cassandra and Robert Mortlake, on the 16th of November. She has three siblings - Frieda, who is married, Frederick, her twin brother, and her younger sister, Hollie. November and Frederick are fraternal twins, and are extremely close. When November was four years old, her sister Frieda got married, and left the family home in California to move to North Dakota. Although November misses her sister, it didn't really affect her life much.

When she was 5, November's family moved to Salem, Oregon. Here, her happiest memories are playing in the snow with her brother. Nova remembers this fondly, and it brought her and her brother together. Behind the family home, Fred and Nova often explored the woods. Here, they discovered many adventures, and the places they explored often become the subject of her drawings.

When November was 6, she was involved in a freak accident involving a window. The two were playing, when Frederick suddenly got angry at her. A heated argument started between the two, and suddenly Nova found herself lying outside on the grass, blood pouring from her head. Frederick had gotten so angry he had pushed her away from the toy he had wanted, but he had pushed Nova so hard she had gone through the window behind her, cutting her head on the glass, leaving her with a scar along her hairline. This caused the pair to be separated, and constantly supervised while together, which caused a huge blow to their friendship for a while.

When November was fifeen, she went up to the attic, where she was forbidden to go. She often went up there to try and decipher what was hidden behind the large wooden door, but was never successful. However, one time, she found the door ajar, and decided to go inside. She found hidden artifacts galore, including ancient talismans, books covered in dust, and jewels of immense beauty. However, Nova pulled one one wrong book, causing the whole bookcase to hit her and knock her unconscious. Unfortunately, this is when her abilities decided to make themselves known. Everything in the attic was flammable, from the wooden floor, to the paper books, and the whole room was quickly aflame. Nova lay there, horribly burned and slowly being crushed by a bookcase, for possibly several hours, when her father Robert burst in. He removed the burning bookcase from Nova's body, and carried her out of the house, badly burned and dying from carbon monoxide poisoning. Nova awoke to see her father's body next to her. She spent the next several weeks in hospital, healing from the burns, but only Frederick ever came to see her. Her mother thought that she was dangerous, and not human, and wouldn't allow Hollie anywhere near her sister. Frieda received the call that her father had died, but never visited Nova in hospital, nor attended his funeral. It was because her magical abilities had only truly began to show at fifteen that there was such a huge outburst, even though there had been signs of it happening before it did, such as temperature changes, or the fire in the fireplace bending towards her.

It wasn't long after that Nova ran away. Her mother would not go near her, and nor would Hollie. Frieda didn't seem to care anymore and Frederick was becoming more and more distant with his new girlfriend. November didn't feel wanted anymore, and she blamed herself for her father's death. On top of that, she had absolutely no recollection of what had happened, and after months of being questioned by her family and the police, Nova had had enough. She packed her bags and left, taking only a picture of her family, some food, a water bottle, and a few spare clothes. She left a note explaining that she wouldn't be back, and to try and forget her. She lived in the woods for a while, keeping an eye on the family, and watching them settle down to life without her. After that, she left, and didn't look back.

After a few weeks of living wild, she discovered a camp of women, all huddled around a fire. Although she urged it not to, the flames bent towards her, as if there was an invisible wind, before spitting sparks high into the air. She soon found herself staring into the eyes of the women, and began stuttering an explanation, before discovering that they, too, were witches like herself. Glad to find someone else that understood what was happening to her, she stayed the night with them, telling stories using the flames, and making them dance. The next day, she went to Cherry Blossom with them. She settled into her new life there, starting at school, and getting a job as a coffee barista. She doesn't regret her decision, and loves her Coven with all her heart.

Julia Sinclair, also known as Jewls in her work place. being the towns most famous stripper wasn't something most girls, if any, would consider and accomplishment but Julia did. She didn't care what people thought of her profession or what people said about her attitude about her profession. she loved what she did, arousing men the way their wives or girlfriends couldn't it was amusing to her how human men were when it came to things like that. While dancing she caught sight of a very pretty girl who she planned on making her dinner.

after her shift was over she stayed behind watching the girl. She ordered a few drinks as she watched the girl interact with other at the bar. Juli had to admit she would be attracted to the poor girl if she hadn't already planned on feeding from her. Sad really she thought as she finished her second drink. Waiting for this girl to leave the club was kind of boring. She had to sit there watching the girl talk to other people and also watch her colleagues dance on stage, they weren't terrible but they were bad. they were trying to hard to be sexy while Julia didn't have to. She had enough confidence to know she was the hottest thing in the room no matter what people said.

Finally the girl was heading out the bar, hopefully heading home. Juli finished her last drink and followed her from a distance. She followed her down the street, stalking her like she had been taught all those years ago. Just as she was ready to make her move on the girl she sensed something that she was sure was going to ruin her night, werewolves.

Lillian had gathered a few wolves to help her scout the town for vampires. It wasn't hard to sense a vampire in a town full of humans however tonight they weren't having much luck. She had split the four of them into two teams, one was sent to the west side of town while she and Serena scouted out the east. The streets were deserted, it being a Friday night most people went to bars or college parties which was perfect targets for vampires. No one ever paid attention at parties, just a bunch of drunks dancing and drinking while some poor kid was getting feed on by a blood-sucker.

Lillian grunted seeing a drunk couple wobbling down the street past them. She never understood humans habits of drinking, they just woke up with a blistering headache the next morning or drank until they puked. Lilly didn't like feeling sick for any reason so to voluntarily drink so much that you feel sick sounded ridiculous to her. "Anything yet?" She asked Serena checking if she'd sensed anything yet. She probably hadn't but it was better to ask than assume.

Being the Alpha wasn't an easy job for anyone but especially Lillian. Even after earning the title she found herself continuously having to prove herself to everyone. Weather it be other Alphas or her pack members, it was much more annoying when her own pack members did it to her. She was always forced to injure them in someway to get it through their heads that she meant business and wouldn't take their crap.

Taking a deep breath, getting ready to call this scouting off she got wind of what they had been looking for. "You smell that?" She whispered to Serena, nudging her in the arm. She scanned the streets searching for where the sent was coming from.

It was late but Vivian was the type who like to practice her magic after most had went to bed for the night, plus it was safer that way. She was still learning about her abilities there were still things she didn't know how to do or make. Just recently she discovered she was able to extract vampire venom from a werewolf, but it wasn't like she would be able to practice that any time soon. She also found out that there was an herb that would help her keep her energy up while healing with her chants. Normally she had to ask Sienna,though she was usually reluctant, to help her when she practiced her chants since chanting took more of her energy but with this herb she would have to. The downside to this find was that the herb was rare and not even found in Cherry Blossom anywhere.

Vivian sighed as she looked through her book of herbs. There was still so much she didn't know and she hated it. She thought that by now she would know at least most of what healers should know but she didn't even know half. It frustrated her that she felt like she was far behind, she partly blamed her father. He should have embraced who she was and allowed her to at least read her mothers books. Instead he burned them and forbid her from even mentioning magic to him.

It was another late night for Elisabeth as she cleaned up the last of the coffee spills on the tables. She tossed the rag onto the counter before sitting down in a chair. She sighed and leaned back against the wall. Closing her eyes, she thought about what she should do next. She had finished cleaning the tables at the coffee shop. All that was left was to check that everything was in its place and then to lock up.

However, her job was not what she was pondering. She was wondering if she should stay out for the rest of the night to scout around the town. It wasn't the most pleasant job, but somebody had to do it. Since she was new to the coven and the youngest vampire, it was her job to look around for potential... meals. It wasn't something that she liked doing. Her former coven had been in a large city, where they were able to feed with ease. They also tried to target people who had no relations to others so that they wouldn't be missed. Here though, a meal was a meal no matter who the person was.

The job of a scouter was also fairly dangerous, rivaled only by that of the tracker. The scouter merely suggested people and kept an eye out for people who seemed a little too curious. The tracker actually stalked the victim. Elisabeth was glad that she didn't have to do that. Of course, Julia could always ignore her suggestions or choose her own target. This was usually the case, which made Elisabeth feel a bit useless and angry with Julia. She would never tell her this though, because Elisabeth knew she couldn't control the other vampire. Besides, she would let Aiden deal with Julia if she ever got too out of line. After all, Aiden was the coven's leader and a highly formidable force.

Elisabeth opened her eyes again and looked around the coffee shop, now quiet after a long day of kids and adults alike passing through. She stood back up, pushing the chair closer to the table. She stretched, her arms rising above her head momentarily before falling back to her sides. β€œNova? Are you still here?” she called out. The two were good friends in addition to being coworkers. Elisabeth knew that Nova would pull her weight in cleaning if they were closing together. Also, her need for organization came in handy.

Gerald yawned as he walked down the street. He had just finished a late running movie and was headed wherever the wind took him. Normally, he would be inclined to head home but tonight he felt like walking around a bit. Oblivious to the fact that he could soon be caught in a fight, he strolled casually through the town.

He wondered what his friends were doing. Nearly everyone within 4 years of his age was a friend of some sort to him. He was just that outgoing and happy to talk to people. There were a few new people to the town who he didn't know very well, but if they looked his way he would smile and wave. No sense in just ignoring them, plus it was rude.

Gerald pulled out his cell phone to see if he had gotten any messages during the movie. He hadn't. He scrolled through his past text conversations. He decided to text Vivan to see if she was still awake. Even if she was curled up in her bed, she was still somebody that he could talk to. Hey, are you still awake? he texted her before putting his phone back in his left pocket.

He continued to walk towards the town square, where he saw Levi. He hadn't spoken to Levi much in his lifetime. Levi was a senior when Gerald was a freshman in high school, but that wouldn't stop him from saying hi.

"You're out late," Gerald commented as he approached Levi. He figured he'd make some small talk as he waited to see if Vivian would respond to him. Even if Levi had no idea who he was, Gerald figured the other man would at least greet him.

Fire. Nova could remember a lot of fire. And there was a lot of it in that attic.

The dream-like fire flickered with orange light, eating up and devouring everything in it's path. It burned in Nova's soul, in her blood. It always had, and it was obvious from the way it swirled about her, bowing to her every whim. Nova liked it that way. She felt strong, powerful.

The flames licked around her ankles, before curling their way around her legs and arms. She could feel the heat gnawing it's way into her flesh, but she ignored it. The burn felt good, as if the flames were fed by her pain.

Nova was startled out of her dream with a flinch, and a shiver. She hated those dreams - it reminded her of the way she really felt. She disliked the whole 'I-could-be-powerful-if-I-wasn't-scared' thing. Her powers scared her - it was made obvious by the bandages bound around her hands like vices. Plus, she'd heard someone calling - Elisabeth. She shook her hair out of her face, brushing it back with her hands, and tying it up into a ponytail. She brushed her hands down her apron, and got up out of her chair, before peering around the door at her friend. "Hey, Elisabeth? Did you call?" She asked, yawning. She wanted to stuff her fist in her mouth and stop yawning so much. "Did you need any help with anything?" She asked, walking out and grabbing a damp cloth, before wiping the tables down. She was cold, and pulled a jacket around her quickly. "Its actually freezing in here." She complained, a whine tinging her voice. Nova was feeling more and more cold these days, which was not a good sign. Winter was coming, and Nova was not prepared.

She knew she should voice it to the other Witches. Her insecurities were getting worse and worse, and November was doing nothing to help solve them. The fire in her spirit was heating her from the inside, and Nova was worried that it was going to devour her completely one day. Maybe Vivian or Sienna could help her.

She shook her head again and scrubbed down a table hastily, tucked in the chairs and wiped them down, too, before cleaning out the coffee machines. It wasn't the most pleasant experience ever, but it needed to be done. "Are you doing anything this evening?" She asked.

Nova appeared and asked Elisabeth if she needed any help. "Not in particular, I wasn't sure if you were still here." Nova moved to clean the tables that Elisabeth hadn't, complaining about how cold it was in the coffee shop. Personally, Elisabeth had very little sense of when something was cold. She suspected this was part of her vampirism, but she also recalled times where her family was astounded at what she would wear. They had taken a trip to Washington and while the rest of her family was bundled up, all she needed was a light sweater. Perhaps she was born warmblooded, only to be turned into something that drank blood.

Both girls continued to clean. While Nova wiped down the rest of the tables and then cleaned out the coffee machines, Elisabeth made sure the plates, glasses, and ingredients were stowed away nicely. She considered using her telekinetic abilities to speed up the process, but what did it matter? Leaving the shop a few minutes early wasn't a big deal, especially since she didn't need to feed for a couple of days.

As the two finished up, Nova turned to Elisabeth to ask if she was doing anything that night. Before Elisabeth could answer, her phone vibrated. Hoping she didn't seem rude, she quickly pulled it out of her pocket and glanced at the message. It was from Julia, informing her to get home quickly. Elisabeth resisted the urge to let out a small groan. She typed a quick response, K, then put her phone away and looked back at her friend. "I wasn't planning on it. I'm pretty tired." She yawned to prove her point. Vampires didn't need sleep, but Elisabeth had perfected the art of yawning. All humans yawned, so she should do the same to fit in. "I was just going to walk home and call it a night."

Elisabeth lived outside of the town, in an old house in the woods. It wasn't in the best shape, but it worked for her. It was far enough away from town that wolves would not be an immediate threat. It was also in a dense set of trees. She could have chosen to live with one of the other coven members, but she felt better being in her own space. Though she was close to Arthur, she wasn't sure she could handle living with him. She was certain that she would have more broken furniture than she did now if he resided with her.

To get to her house though, she would either have to trek through the woods or cut through town. Something told her that she shouldn't risk going through Cherry Blossom tonight, but at the same time she felt she might have to. What if Nova was attacked by someone? And what if Julia was hurt by one of the wolves? Though the two didn't always get along, Elisabeth knew it was her responsibility to look out for another coven member. She would feel guilty if Julia was hurt when she could have tried to get to her.

"What about you?" she asked Nova. She grinned. "I saw you yawning too."

Gerald couldn't help but grin as Levi referred to him as a band geek. Yes, that was exactly who he was. It wasn't a bad thing either, in fact he considered it a compliment. He had spent his high school years at every football game, playing the trumpet and hanging out with his friends. There had been plenty of shenanigans, one of the most memorable being when he put a frog inside a girl's instrument case.

Levi mentioned having to fix something for the band once. Gerald chuckled. "Sounds about right. There were probably more broken things in the band room than working ones. Fortunately, the school was nice enough to fix the mold problem." Levi offered a hand in greeting and he shook it. The other man then asked him what he was doing out so late, as Cherry Blossom wasn't traversed by many alone once the sun set. Gerald had never understood the reasoning behind this, as he thought that the town was fairly safe. He had never encountered any strange men handing out candy, murderers running towards him with an axe, or anything that he could deem extremely dangerous.

"I was at a late movie showing," he told the other man. Gerald glanced at the shop sign. He had passed it before, but never gave it much attention. "Is this yours now?" he asked Levi.

Just after he had asked his question, Gerald's phone let out a ding. It was a reply from Vivian. Instinctively, he pulled out his phone and read her text. He smiled. He probably hadn't needed to ask if she was awake, but he had a habit of doing so anyway. He didn't want o be rude. Doing anything? I'm awake from that movie I saw, he responded to her before placing his phone back in his pocket.

"Sorry about that," he said to Levi. He realized that it was rude to text when having a conversation with someone, but it was also rude to not respond to one of his best friends. Gerald figured that he would chat with Levi for a few more minutes before going to Vivian's place. He didn't want to bug Levi for too long if he was busy.

Elisabeth's reply sounded about right. Nova could disappear without a word sometimes; most of the time, she'd let someone know before she left, but she had gone at the end of her shift without saying goodbye once or twice before. It seemed like her to check Nova was still there. At least, Nova reasoned, that was what friends did, right?

Nova rubbed at her arms gently, trying to stimulate some blood flow. She had to admit, she was a little jealous of Elisabeth's ability to not notice the cold, but Nova suspected that the reason she felt its bite so badly was because of the magic in her blood. She listened to the clink and clatter of porcelain on porcelain as Elisabeth tucked away the cutlery and clean plates. The sound gave Nova the ability to clean out the gross clumps of half dissolved coffee granules and replace the filters, clean and ready for the next day of business.

November smiled at Elisabeth as she pulled out her phone to reply to the notification. She didn't really mind - people did it all the time, and it was probably her parents seeing where she was. She smiled again and continued, snapping the lid on the coffee machine back into place and switching off the power to the appliances around her. Nova turned around upon hearing her friend reply, and yawn, which caused Nova to yawn herself. However, she frowned a little when she said she was walking home.

"What?! Alone?!" November asked, surprise filling her tone. Pretty much everyone knew the 'unspoken rules' around here, especially if you didn't want to go missing. Number one was 'Don't walk home alone after midnight', and to be fair, November knew her friend could handle herself, but couldn't let herself be responsible if something happened.

"I'm not doing anything either." Nova answered her friend's question quickly. "If you want, I'll come crash with you at your place? I'm not sure I want you going home alone." She suggested, biting her lip. She hoped she didn't sound too pushy or forward, but she was worried for her friend. She hated the thought of letting anything happen - so she'd resolved to stop it from happening.

Nova was quite startled after Elisabeth had told her she planned to walk home. The brunette couldn't help but laugh a bit in her head. As long as she didn't encounter either of the packs, she would be fine. And if she did, she could always throw a car at them. There was nothing better to get your blood pumping than tossing a car at a werewolf using your telekinetic powers. Obviously.

However, she did appreciate her friends concern. Elisabeth was aware of the rule of not walking alone in Cherry Blossom. In fact, everyone seems dot obey this rule except for a few like Gerald. If he knew what was lurking in the streets, she was sure he would be more careful. As much as she wished she could advise him against wandering at night alone, she could not do so without exposing the secrets of the supernaturals within it. The last thing she wanted to do was to alert a human to their presence. Humans didn't deserve to be burdened with the war between the three species.

Nova suggested that she come crash at Elisabeth's place. Part of the young woman's mind panicked while the other part was highly amused. If Nova saw where Elisabeth lived, she'd think twice about asking to stay over. The house was structurally sound for the most part, but in some spots it wasn't a good idea to walk over it. In those cases, Elisabeth would have to lift herself and move over the unsafe space. Her home also lacked an abundance of furniture. What she had was either old, broken, or for her personal use only.

Elisabeth knew her friend was only trying to look out for her, but the suggestion created a dilemma. Of course, Elisabeth could decline her offer and travel home alone. However, she risked running into the wolves and suffering a brutal death at their hands. If she was with Nova and came across a wolf, there may be less of a risk of her being killed. A smart wolf wouldn't kill a vampire with a human witness. A third option would be to go in search of Julia. Since she knew the wolves were out, there was a chance that they were following her. Elisabeth would feel guilty should anything happen to her. It was a tough choice to make.

"Maybe I could come to your place? It's probably closer to here than mine," she suggested, playing with the key to the shop in her hand. She wanted to leave the shop soon, nervous about encountering the wolves.

Still worried about Julia, she pulled out her phone and quickly texted Arthur. Wolves are out. Check on Julia? She figured that he would be roaming about.

Gerald let out a soft "ahh" after Levi explained that the shop had always been his. He offered to let Gerald stay as he opened up the shop. The other man made a point of warning him that the shop would be very dusty. Gerald could only suspect as much, as he'd never seen the shop in operation. It was one of those places that was there, but wasn't at the same time. Still, Levi's comment couldn't help but make him chuckle.

Levi slowly unlocked and then opened the door. Gerald noticed his slight hesitation in opening the shop, but didn't ask why. He figured that it was something personal to Levi and that it would be rude to pry. "After you," he told Levi once the door was fully open.

His phone dinged, meaning that Vivian had replied. She asked what movie he had seen. Age of Ultron, he responded. I'm with Levi right now, but if you aren't too tired maybe I could stop by soon? Gerald assumed that Vivian was familiar with Levi, as they had all gone to the same high school. He felt bad for inviting himself over, but he really was quite awake and saw no point in going home. Plus, Vivian lived closer to where he was now than he did. His parents were asleep anyway and sneaking into his house was something he was quite good at. Living in the basement meant that he could enter without going through the whole house.
