Sexuality
She's pansexual, but not many people can get her interested

Most girls deny how much time they spend on their appearance; Astrid, on the other hand, flaunts it. She always wears makeup and is never seen without out. Her eyes are a light blue, but often look grey, and are always lined with eyeliner. She has a quaint little nose that balances her face, right above her always glossed lips. Her diamond face is framed by long brown hair that's almost never up. She doesn't mind her hair coming in her face because it's her best feature.

Her made up face comes with a curvy body with broad shoulders and undefined collarbones. She flaunts her body just as much as her face. She opts for a professional look, opting for a blazer and skirt over a t-shirt and jeans. Anything fancy is usually her style. At a formal event, she shines in her jewels in heels. Even in casual wear, she likes a pair of nice jeans and a blouse. Astrid is almost never seen without heels or flats, but will wear oxfords often and will go barefoot before wearing flip-flops or tennis shoes. She usually wraps her feet in bandages for combat class and wears fingerless gloves.

Special Marks
Astrid has a long scar that runs down her left calf, but doesn't remember how it got there. When she joined the group of Driest Head Girls, she had to get a tattoo, and she got this.

Occupation
Astrid helps teach the combat training class for first and second years.

Fears
Astrid fears being taken advantage of
She also fears losing all of her control of her body
Her worst fear is being locked up alone

Secret
When she was little, she was constantly molested by her older brother, and when she realized her power, she almost killed him.

Personality
Astrid has always loved to be the center of attention. She flaunts her body and is not afraid to be real with people; she has her enemies and she has her friends. With her friends, she is always the leader, or the one with the most attention. Astrid refuses to do anything that she won't be the best at, and strives for perfection in everything she does. She knows when she's the best and when she isn't. She definitely doesn't lie to herself; she knows her flaws. She is incredibly cocky and will not back down from a competition or bet, feeling that she will win.

Astrid thinks very highly of herself, considering she has strong abilities and became head girl. Anyone who challenges the idea of herself being a strong leader will have more than a few words from Astrid. She is the dominant head of the house and won't take anything from her partner; she does care for him though. She cares for the students in her house so much that she was considered for a guardian position before they saw her leadership skills. She created her tough, cocky exterior so no one could take advantage of her again; the interior has the broken mess known as her emotions. She will not let people use her, she's hidden her emotions away from everyone. She will hurt anyone who calls her weak; she teaches the Driest students to be the same away.

History
Astrid is the second child of a broken marriage. Her father was constantly busy working as the advisor of a small island's duchess and her mother worked in the move business. Both of them cheated on each other but the money they shared was the only thing they could consider love. Because of this, they hired a nanny to take care of Astrid and her older brother. The nanny was the closest thing Astrid had to a mother, and her brother took on the fatherly figure. Unfortunately, that image was ruined when he climbed into her bed and touched her six year old body.

The teenager thought he could use his sister as he pleased, with a nanny unaware and parents to far away to care. He was unaware that Astrid was not getting weaker, but rather, stronger. She realized he didn't love her, he used her for her body. When he tried to attack her again, the gods appeared; the first was Hel, the being who resides over Hell, possessed her body and strangled Astrid's brother with shadows. The next was Thor, who purified her brother, which took away his memories of what he did to her. For her, it was the only way she could forgive him. The nanny was the only one that knew some of this story. She took her brother to the hospital and decided that she wouldn't ask what happened to the boy. Her father finally did come home and quit his job; he considered the money he earned enough to sustain them. The purification had messed up her brother's mind and they were forced to send him to a mental hospital.

Her father also got a divorce and her mother didn't seem fazed by it. He got married to the nanny, and they were finally something like a family. They had family outings, went to movies, and finally used the dining room. It was about a year before her acceptance into Eltz that she confessed to her parents what her brother had done to her and why he didn't remember it. They were fearful of her, wondering what her power meant. Her mother finally took a visit, hearing of this predicament, and told her of Eltz and that she was from a generation of deity physiologists. With the help of her mother, she was accepted into Eltz and rose to the top of her class. There's nowhere she'd rather be.

Pets
She has a rabbit named Loki

Theme Song
Set Fire to the Rain - Adele

Anything Else
She likes to hike to a cave near the top of the mountain where she can work on her power privately.

So begins...

Staring down the edge of the cliff, Astrid let her power consume her.

Astrid had ventured out onto her seclude on the mountain the academy was settled on, where she often went to train her powers; if she wasn't studying Norse gods and their abilities. Starting a new term, she wanted to start a routine of coming to this private place in the mornings before class to harness more control on her power, as if using Professor Lawrence wasn't enough.

And today was the day she would try to change willingly into a god.

The electricity crackled and sparked in her palms as Astrid aimed towards the air around her; well it wasn't Astrid, technically it was Thor. Her eyes were completely engulfed in white as she kept herself isolated on the mountain cliff.

Once a large bolt escaped from her fingers she returned to her body, rested on the rocky wall behind her as she breathed heavily. It was one of the first times she'd tried to bring the gods out of her own accord, and she could feel the edges of faintness encircling her. It took a lot of energy to focus on such a specific power. She would have to do more studying to figure out how to do anything else. Astrid checked her watch to find that the school day was going to start soon. She would most likely hike back up during independent study.

Astrid wiped her face with a towel and started heading down to change into her uniform. Although the uniform was bland, being a black blazer with the Dreist crest, a button-down with the violet of the two Dreist colors, and khakis, she managed to spice it up, as most Dreist girls did.

The hike back down took longer than expected, so Astrid had to skip a shower, instead freshening up, and had little time to straighten her hair before they went off to guide the freshman for the annual tour. It really irked her, being that she wanted to look her best today. Dress to impress, her mother used to say; when she was around, of course.

She plucked at the blouse so that it wouldn't stick to her stomach and shimmed into her high-waisted khakis. The school did give the students optional uniforms, but they were drab and quite ugly to Astrid. She would never be caught dead in khaki bermuda shorts and the stiff purple-y shirts that the school provided. She would rather spend her own money on more fashionable items. Astrid barely had enough time for her makeup with Kian, and Annabelle were going to be knocking on her door. The three agreed to meet up before orientation to walk over together.

Once they arrived, Astrid was as ready as she could be, appearing with a smug look on her face. "Goodmorning Annabelle, Kian." She gave the boy a once over and turned to walk between them.

They chatted off-handedly until Headmaster Ryan approached Astrid, a freshman girl tagging along. Astrid assumed this was the girl she was showing around.

Kian's eyes fluttered open, his alarm clock's beeping sounding terrible loud in his early morning haze. He groaned loudly, his arm smacking onto his night table in spastic movements as he attempted to silence it's noise. He wasn't adjusted to the time difference from home, at all. Well, that, and he was more than a little hung over right now. Finally, his hand connected with the alarm, the noise cutting off.

His eyes shut slowly as he faded back into sleep, but the combination of his headache setting in and the cat nuzzling his side brought him back into reality. Kian sat up quickly, moaning and clutching his head as he did so, and looked at the alarm clock. He needed to get going if he was going to be on time to hang out with Astrid. Automatically, he stroked the kitten at his side, picking it up to his chest with one hand and he grabbed a bottle of water from under his bed. Max purred lightly, obviously happy to get attention, and Kian opened his water bottle, tipping it over and draining it. Hopefully, this would help sooner or later. Also, Kian opened his bedside table's drawer, pulling out advil. He popped two in his mouth, swallowing, before standing up. Max leaped from his hands onto the bed, curling up in the warm place where Kian had just been.

He walked into the bathroom, going pee and then brushing his teeth. Checking the clock, he realized he had enough time to shower, and did so, quickly. Afterwards, he felt better. His head wasn't as fuzzy and wasn't pounding anymore. Kian changed into his uniform, the gold and purple being too bright for him at this hour. Despite the fact that he could probably get away with cheating dress code, he followed it. He wanted to be a good example of a student, since he was head boy.

His hair, still damp from his shower, was beginning to curl. He ran his fingers through it, to get it running the right way, the putted a dot of gel in it, hoping it would tame it. Grabbing his backpack, he poured Max a bowl of food. He also pocketed a pack of cigarettes. He was about to leave, before he made a last minute decision. Going back to his bed, he stroked max softly, pulling out a bottle from behind his bed and taking a few swigs, the taste burning slightly, but in a good way. Then he left, walking down the hallway, different emotions popping into his head as his usual smile fit onto his face. He nodded at those he passed, most of them generally feeling happy, but pretty tired, and a few angry for something or another. He met Annabelle at Astrid's door, knocking and waiting for the girl to come out.

Wow, she sure was pretty. He saw her once over, and he blushed lightly, turning to walk as she did. He didn't ask anything very interesting, and as he was about to ask about her night, when they were approached by the headmaster. Kian nodded at him, a large smile fitting his face. "Hello Headmaster Ryan. How are you?"

Quinn tapped his foot impatiently. He was dressed in a crew neck black sweater and navy sweats. He also wore new sneakers on his feet, but none of this was important right now. After the private jet ride from New York to this airport, he was in pain. Just hours before the plane ride, his dad had gotten very, very angry. And now, with slashes all over his back, he was sore. He'd probably been hit with the belt 17 or 18 times, and part way through, he'd passed out from the pain. That's why he now wore a dark sweater; so when the blood began to flow if he bent down or stretched or something, it wouldn't be noticeable.

So he stood here now, waiting by the doors of the airport, next to the limo his dad had hired. He was carpooling with some girl... what was her name again? Alden? Something like that. They'd flown separately, since they live on different sides of the country. The girl came into his eyes, well at least a girl he assumed to be here. She was pretty, a little tall and blonde and pale. Yeah, definitely pretty. He nodded toward her, signaling for her to come over.

"I'm Quinn," he said, putting his hand out to shake her's, then opening the car door and letting her get in, before going in himself. They had an hour long car ride ahead of them, and he was going to let her decide if they were going to talk, or be seperate, in which case he would listen to music.

Annabelle had a restless night like always. She lay awake in her bed for most of the night, on most nights like those she'd often be up and she'd be stretching her limbs, and doing some sort of pilates just to keep herself going and to hopefully tire herself out. Anna had a series of things she did during the nights to try and sleep. One of those was also reading and writing different things, and she practiced light forms of her power to try and drain some energy out of her but she was told before that, that it was quite dangerous to keep doing to herself. Finally four hours before she had to be woken up she had gotten into a pair of shorts and a baggy shirt, that had belonged to her boyfriend Robert. She always enjoyed wearing his clothes when she could and when she had the chance. She had't stolen this shirt from him, she just had one of them and she often loved his scent, and it'd flood into her nostrils helping her relax and be more calm. She grabbed her i-pod and then she pulled the covers back.

Annabelle slipped into her bed and then began to braid her hair loosely and tied it off at the end with an elastic. Laying back on her back, she pulled out her earbuds and she stuck one of them in her ear and she pressed play and a variety of soothing music that was light came filling in and she soon relaxed a lot to the state of her minimal rest. She closed her eyes and she rested there only thinking of pleasant things and her life back home in Florence, and all the smells and the people and the warmth, it was days like these where she missed home sometimes, but she had a great opportunity here and she couldn't waste it she had to go.

She had finally drifted off to sleep and she soon woke up at six fourteen am and she sighed softly. She didn't get nearly enough sleep but she'd live on with the day. She always did. She turned her i-pod off and she set it down on her night stand. Getting out of bed she soon began to make her way to the bathroom, and did her morning routine of, shower, brush teeth, dry off and pick out her clothes. You may think with the uniform and such she wouldn't have anything to choose from, but Annabelle was into fashion, she knew how to make things her own meanwhile staying within the dressing code rules. She picked out the black skirt with her black knee high socks to go with her nice black sparkles flats. As for the top she had her black vest that had some rhinestones added to it and she had light sparkles on it and not to mention the Charmante crest was on her vest as well. She also had her nice orange blouse top that was very pretty and had some style to it as well. As she got changed into these things she soon walked back to the bathroom.

Blow drying her hair and soon shortly straightening it, led to her putting her hair up in a half pony tail and using an orange bow beret to hold it together. She got her book bag and she slung it over her shoulder. Soon she began to do her make up with the concealer, foundation, and light eye shadow, and her winged eyeliner to top it off. She kept a simple and yet nice look to herself. She was told to meet Astrid and Kian outside of Astrid's door and that's where she was going. She would like to see Robert in the morning but she'd get to see him eventually anyways. She didn't see Astrid and Kian as much as she did Robert sometimes.

As she grabbed her keys she walked out of her room locking the door and she soon went walking around for a bit until she ended up finding Astrid's room and when she arrived it wasn't short after that Kian showed up. Soon they had Astrid and they were walking down the hall. They were off to orientation of course and upon getting there they saw Headmaster Ryan and a freshman girl with him. "Good morning Headmaster Ryan! and who might this young girl be? She's awfully cute." She said in her same old tone, and she kept things light and positive, just how any other day would go.

More freshman student were arriving now and it appeared that there were also a number of senior student coming to greet the new enrolments. A few greeted the headmaster. After weighing the benefits of having her arms free with the risk of leaving her property out in the open Alice quickly dumped her belongings against a wall in the stairwell where others had left their own luggage until they could be taken to their rooms. She returned to Mr Ryan as he was approached by some of the aforementioned senior students.

The headmaster introduced one girl, professional-looking and dark-haired, as Astrid Horn, head girl of Dreist House.

"Hello Headmaster Ryan. How are you?" This was a tall guy with some serious cheek bones, intoduced as Kian McKinley, head boy of Treu House.

The final student, a girl with long light gold-brown hair, was named Annabelle Watson, head girl of Charmante house. "Good morning Headmaster Ryan! and who might this young girl be? She's awfully cute."

"Ta. Your pretty easy on the eyes yourself yourself," Alice smirked, as the headmaster stepped away briefly. She was a bit thrown off by the flurry of introductions; but this is what she got for arriving early. Alice blamed the fact that the cheapest decent flight had just so happened to have also been an early morning one. Having spent her whole life in Britain, except taking a ferry across the channel on vacation, it had been her first plane flight.
"Alice Ender," she added, in answer to Annabelle's question, as Mr Ryan returned with the student who had arrived just after Alice, a red-headed girl with a small dog at her heels.

"Hello..." Alice peered over the red-head's shoulder at the name printed across the top of the enrolment papers she now held. "...Riley Ruth?" Nice to meet ya, Riles."

It was weird thinking that all these new people had powers just like her. Well, not exactly like her, because apparently people like them had all sorts of different powers. Life at this school was bound to be interesting she thought with vague amusement

Astrid let her eyes wander over her new freshman. She knew her students better than any head girl and Alice Ender was no exception to that.

Ender was a feisty one, she could tell. The spunky freshman girl eyed her right back, and that took some confidence; Astrid was always dressed to impress and intimidate. She would have to get to know Alice, some people came before duties.

"Well, Headmaster Ryan, Alice, I would love to stay and chat but my tummy wants to chat with my breakfast. The Driest tours start at 10 o' clock, sharp. Don't be late." With a flutter of her fingers, how she liked to wave, she, Kian, and Annabelle were off to breakfast.

The cafeteria was already packed with students. Astrid frowned with disdain.

"Anna B, is the coffee shop open?" Her voice wavered with discomfort. Astrid absolutely abhorred crowded, public areas and even places at Eltz were no exception. It always felt like someone was watching her, judging her, disliking her. Although she was cocky and competitive, she was competitive to have people like her. Having friends and making them happy meant that she was a good person, and that was always something she strived for; that seemed impossible with so many people around. She bit her lip and looked around. She was supposed to meet Tiff, but that wasn't an option.

Astrid didn't wait for an answer and headed toward the parking lot. Usually they biked, or rode in Robert's car, but she wasn't exactly sure what Robert was doing at this hour. Her father had sent her Mercedes-Benz SLS-Class Coupe. It was one of the many joys of being from a prominent, wealthy family.

She drove the trio out to the coffee shop, only to find it closed. Annabelle had warned her that it wouldn't be open. There was a little diner that had it's gaudy neon sign blinking "open". Astrid's lips curled in a smile.

"Bingo." Astrid clicked, turning into the parking lot.

(I apologize but this wil be a short post :/)

Annabelle listened to Astrid as she talked. She had taken not to the girl, who had been known as Alice and she meant to keep a mental note in her head. Eventually while it was all going on she felt her phone vibrate and she pulled it out and she looked at the text seeing that it was another good friend of hers known as Quinn. Her and him had been best friends since they were in the academy together and she rather enjoyed his company. She wished sometimes she could sneak away to visit with him, but Astrid was her best friend too. Sometimes Anna felt it was difficult to balance all her friends sometimes but she made sure she made time for each other them, especially Robert.

"Alrighty, I'll see you later, Quinny! :) With Astrid atm though~"

Annabelle sent to Quinn and she was happy, soon Astrid wanted to leave and she sighed, it was like her friend to want to leave, she suggested going to the coffee shop but Annabelle said it wasn't such a good idea considering that the shop might not be open and as they had gone out to Astrid's car and drove off Annabelle had been proven right. Luckily they had a back up plan and Anna followed Astrid's lead. "So how was everyone's sleep?" Anna asked both Kian and Astrid with a smile. There were only a couple people who knew about Annabelle's chronic insomnia. The teachers and the headmaster as it is their duty to know and it makes her school life easier, but they keep it secret. Then there was Quinn, Robert, and Astrid who knew, but Anna wasn't close enough with Kian to talk about it in front of him. Anna pulled out her phone again and began to send another text.

"Robby! You awake yet, darling? :) xox"

She sent the text to her boyfriend and she was hoping he'd be getting up soon. She was also very excited to getting to spend some more time with him later today. Anna had gone into day dream land for awhile but she knew shortly she'd be brought back to the world of reality, which was fine. Anna just needed something to do for the moment.[/size]

"Well combat isn't just about hurting people. Like martial arts, it's also about defending yourself. Blocking, deflecting, avoidance. I'm sure they won't throw you in at the deep end," Riley nodded in understanding. It made her feel better but not completely. But at least she had a different view on the whole combat thing. 'Okay think of it like defense instead of attacking. I can do that...right?' Riley thought but she was sure she was going to choke when she stepped on the combat mats, Riley gulped and took another bite. Well when the time comes she'll be ready, she hopes.

Then Alice went on about on a joke that she's only worried if their was history class. Riley laughed with her easing up some of the anxiety that was creeping over her body. She did not want to have another accident. Riley looked at her croissant then her tea. Feeling brave she dipped it in then took a bite. It wasn't bad but it did do something to the taste. It had a hint of lemon in. "So which of them do you reckon is a upperclassman teacher? And do think having a hot one will help you pay attention in class or be the distraction?"

Riley choked as someone's name popped up in her head at the mention of hot. She hit her chest a little bit hoping it would go down. Riley smiled sheepishly then took a bite out of her apple almost done with her breakfast. "I have no idea what you are talking about." To add an effect she averted her gaze to her dog who's head was tilted side ways oblivious to what was happening at the moment. Trying to be sly she looked at Alice's smirking face. "No one has caught my eye yet." Riley spoke but on the inside her lie detector was going off. Riley took a look around at the students before turning back to Alice's with a shrug. "Nope sorry. What about you?"

Kian could feel the buzzing nerves in the room; literally. The edges of his eyesight were tinted with a dark violet, and he could feel his palms getting a little sweaty and adrenaline kicking in. He went from standing calmly, looking composed to slightly bouncing one leg. He smiled to the girl, and many other's passing, most having at least a small purple tint. His attention was drawn back when Astrid spoke, and instantly, his hands went back to normal and he started to feel more at ease. Her confidence slightly countered the nervousness and when she started to walk, he followed, bobbing his head politely to the head master and a passing freshman.

Once arriving, however, he could tell Astrid wouldn't want to stay. Crowded places were not her happy space. His eyes found Lucy, and he could tell even from the distance she was uncomfortable. He would make sure to make plans with her for later, to calm her down.

"Sounds like a plan," he said, in regard to the coffee shop. He was more quiet than usual, his headache still pretty bad, and as they walked to Astrid's car he pulled a water bottle out of his backpack. It was filled with a clear liquid, but it wasn't water. He took two sips from it, big ones, then returned it to it's place in his backpack. He knew neither of the girls approved of his bad habits; hell, he didn't either, so he made sure not to let them smell what it was. In the car, he opened up a text to Lucy. Hey kiddo. Take it easy- Lunch? and sent it, pocketing his phone.

He wasn't necessarily upset that the coffee shop was closed, but he was pleased when they found the diner open. He grinned at Astrid, giving her a nudge before exiting the car. "Uh, fine," Kian muttered, flashbacks of his last few memories from last night hitting his head, though he didn't remember actually going to bed, for that matter.

Arriving at the diner door, he held it open for the two girls, entering after. It was seat yourself, and he chose a booth on the right. In sat on one side, the two girls taking the other. He couldn't help but grin. This was quite the perfect morning, with these two. Well, at least it seemed like it, what with his mind becoming slightly lofty and bubbly from the light buzz.

Astrid could smell it. Alcohol. She eyed Kian out of the corner of her eye, but wouldn't speak. She couldn't condemn him for her own sin.

Once they arrived, the three sat happily in a booth, Annabelle on one side, Astrid and Kian on the other. Normally, Astrid sat by herself, to talk to both of them face-to-face, but today she was especially tired and wanted someone to sleep on.

Just like in the movies, a girl in a poodle skirt and rollerskates pulled up to their table. She had bubblegum pink hair and neck tattooes. "Hey, I'm Carly, what can I get you guys?" She popped a bubble of gum as pink as her hair.

Astrid ordered a strawberry milkshake and a chicken tenders basket, then the others ordered. Once they were finished, she rolled away with the small list. Astrid sighed, letting her head rest against Kian's shoulder. "I hope Danny leads the tours today, I have such a horrible headache." She groaned.

They started to talk about meaningless things, mostly small talk, until the food arrived. They ate in mostly comfortable silence.

Annabelle started talking about something Astrid wasn't too interested, but pretended to be anyway, when something flickered in the corner of her eye. She set down the little fry and excused herself momentarily. She turned the corner towards the ladies' room, someone pushed her inside. The assaulter slammed her against the wall. "Never knew someone so dangerous could be pretty too." The man snarled, pinning her against the wall.

It was almost laughable that he was trying to intimidate her. She smirked but wouldn't let him see her afraid. No one would, no one could scare her. That's when he used his powers.

No one had ever used their powers on her. Just like that, there was an awful pain encompassing her body. His mouth covered her cries of agony. Just when the pain subsided, the man slammed his hand against her pounding head. "What do you want from me?" Astrid cried out, shrinking against the wall. He did it, she was officially scared of him. "Nothing, yet." He disappeared.

Astrid pulled out her book of Norse mythology and desperately searched for the god that healed. Fear Masking would have worked for that situation.

Finding Forseti, the god of justice, her power did the work and she returned to the table, albeit frazzled. She felt a little embarrassed at the fact that they were already finished. "Sorry, Anna B, Ki, I had a lot of spicy food last night." Her confidence returned, although still stunted, and remained quiet as she quickly finished her meal.

Annabelle, sat there, she was sitting alone today, sometimes she felt things more deeply than she wanted to but luckily she had her very positive demeanor to give her a smiley outlook all the time. Annabelle, had just really wished she could have stayed in bed a bit longer, despite her chronic insomnia, she wished she pretended to be ill and just had Robert take care of her instead. Annabelle, loved Astrid and all but sometimes Astrid was a bit much for how Annabelle liked to be. Sometimes the two of them had difficulty getting along, they were both so different, besides Astrid and Kian seemed to be just fine together and happy, Kian would have probably preferred for Anna to be back at school, she almost wishes it too. Annabelle ordered her food, a vanilla milkshake and a blueberry muffin. She wasn't too much in the mood for eating anyways. Soon an emotional wave hit Annabelle. She could feel her blood rush more, and she knew this was her aura mimicry hitting in. It was her most frequent used power, that would turn on and off by itself. Soon while Annabell had mentioned the whole sleeping bit, she could feel the emotions the other two felt, neither really cared so Annabelle just dropped her topic of conversation.

Soon she got a mixture of emotions running through her body, from the people in the diner. There was happy and bubbly ones, some excited, some in secrets, then there was a darker one lurking about and it set Annabelle on edge, but she decided to dismiss it and when the food came she tried to be more engulfed in that instead of anything else, she didn't like to dwell on things too much. She soon heard that Astrid was excusing herself, and she just went along with it, but Annabelle, wasn't sure what would happen, she didn't control whose emotions they mimicked to her anyways, but eventually she got a small wave of pain before her mimicry switched out and changed to the bored chef in the diner. He really hated his job and Annabelle felt bad for him, and soon it changed back to Astrid as she came back, and at that moment, despite the way Astrid was looking, Annabelle knew something was going on despite her little white lie, Anna was smarter than that, despite being naive to a lot of things, her aura mimicry never lied, and there was more Astrid wasn't sharing, as to what it was, Annabelle didn't know. Annabelle didn't like secrets to be kept from her, but if that was how it was to be then so be it.

Anna nodded to Astrid and for a bit she drank her milkshake a bit, and ate half her muffin. She left her muffin on the table and then she fished into her clutch and pulled out a bit of money and placed it on the table, "Here, this should pay for my food." Anna said giving the two a smile. "I don't feel too well so I should get some fresh air, maybe start walking back to the school and perhaps text Robert or Quinn for a ride if it is an absolute must, I just, it's too stuffy in here, I'm terribly sorry Astry and Kian. I hope you guys enjoy your morning though." She said with a cheery bright smile and then she took her milkshake and she got up out of the booth and she waved to them and walked out of the diner.

Stepping out into the fresh air she breathed in deeply. It was nice to be in the fresh open air, nature was beautiful and she hated to be cooped up inside, plus she needed to be away from all the insane amounts of people, they were making her power and emotions go out of whack, and the more that her power used up the more it wore her out, and even before she had just begun. She was already getting a piercing headache, and she was getting worn out and the day hardly started, this was the one power that ran free and she had no control over. Astrid was too shaken up to talk to, plus she hardly listened sometimes, not to say Anna didn't love her, just sometimes, Anna felt lonely despite being around her. She kept walking or quite a bit before she pulled her phone out, she was going to text Robert, she'd see Quinn later but right now all she wanted was to see Robert and just be wrapped up in his arms and have her headache go away.

"Robby, can you come and pick me up? I'll meet you at the coffee shop. :)"

She sent it and then she continued over to the coffee shop which wasn't too far away but walking distance it could be a bit far. Annabelle sat on the front steps, she knew nothing super bad could happen to her out here anyways, The owner who was her boss would be here in about fifteen minutes anyways and he'd open the shop, so worst case she could fend anyone off if she needed to.

Kian smiled lightly to himself, though he fought the urge to take out the water bottle again. He didn't want to drink now, at least not in front of these two. His order was simple, a burger and a water, as he decided not to eat too much. There'd been times were he was out with these two and had eaten four or five meals, before becoming violently ill. That happened last year, at least. He smiled at Astrid as she leant on him, wrapping his arm around her shoulders to make her more comfortable. As she spoke, his fingers subconsciously began twirling her hair. When the food arrived he pulled his arm away, beginning to dig it, but trying to remember not too eat to messily. It grossed the girls out.

Eyes flickering to Annabell, Kian downed the last of his water. At this point, his buzz was beginning to wear off. When Astrid stood up, his eyes followed her until she entered the bathroom, and they then found their way back to Annabell, a soft smile fitting onto his face. He heard her talking about sleep, but his mind started to drift as his headache found his way back into his mind. And damn, it hurt, the throbbing as his eyes got a little foggy, the light too bright. He was brought back into focus when he saw a dark flash of red, coming from the bathroom. He stood up quickly, but stayed in place as second later Astrid came out. Her face looked fine, and the color had subsided to her usual light pink glow. He sat down, tucking his hands in his lap, slightly embarrassed.

Kian was really surprised when Annabelle decided to leave, but he nodded, shooting her a comforting smile. He glanced at her money. If it was his choice, he'd pay for them all, but she was out the door before he could do anything about it. His attention turned to Astrid, the sight of her face making him forget about the previous emotional wave he'd felt from her, a smile falling on his face.

He waited for her to finish before speaking, ordering a large hot chocolate to go, and then pulling out his wallet. He knew Astrid wouldn't fight him for the rest of the bill, as she knew how much money his family had and that he wouldn't let her pay no matter what. Kian put the money on the table, picking up the hot chocolate with one hand and putting the other on Astrid's side, giving her a light squeeze to stand up, then holding the door open for her as they exited. It wasn't particularly warm outside, and as they walked he put his arm around her shoulders, pulling her into him. He shrugged off his urge to pull out a cig, turning his attention to Astrid. Gosh, she was so pretty.

Astrid watched with a blank stare as Kian paid for the check and they made their way out of the restaurant.

"Uh, Ki, I had a really good time, but I think we should head back." Astrid had never felt like this before; she was very uncomfortable and it made her want to melt into the ground.

It wasn't Kian, in fact, his arm around her made her stomach do somersaults. She led him back to the car, all she wanted to do was get into class so that she could get to Headmaster Ryan before independent study; he was the only one she could trust with the information. But he was probably busy, and she believed not thinking about it would help.

She drove quickly and mostly in silence. It was the only thing her ego would let her do. Once they were parked, Astrid bit her lip. "I'll see you later, Ki," She smiled, planting a quick kiss on his cheek, and hopped out her car. She whipped out her cell phone and found the one person that could get her mind off of things: Andrei.

To: Andy Stepanov
From: Star

Hey Andy, it's Star. You busy tonight? I still have some vodka left from last time.


Astrid turned on her heel and walked inside the school. It took her a few seconds to actually walk past Headmaster's office and into the cafeteria to find Tiffany. She found her in the tricking corner, where she was almost always at. "What are you planning, Tiff?" Astrid asked as she walked up next to the girl, hands crossed in front of her chest with a smirk.

Tiff was the girl Astrid went to when she wanted to get into a little trouble, and lately, since Annabelle and Robert had been spending a lot more time together, Astrid had been doing the same with Tiff and Kian.

Astrid joined her on the windowsill. "Tiff, if you had the choice between someone you really like and someone you have sex with, who would you choose?" Usually this was something she would do with Annabelle, considering she was more sensitive and knowing of romance; however, Annabelle was with Robert at the moment and she couldn't exactly own up to her feelings for Kian just yet. For the moment, she wanted to have fun and forget about her problems. That required the help of Tiff and Andrei.

She snapped off a quick text and in a few minutes, a scraggly, skinny kid gave her a skinny vanilla latte. "So, what's the plan, mi amiga?"

Kian could tell something was up with Astrid when he put his arm around her, her body stiff and not reacting, not leaning into him as she usually did. He pulled it away a few feet away from the car, making his way to the car in silence. He mood was effecting him, and as the car ride went on his emotion seemed to drain, and he felt uncomfortable. He'd never seen the aura color coming from Astrid before, so he had no idea what it meant, but he didn't like it. When she planted a kiss on his cheek, he hardly reacted, nodding his head in goodbye and exiting the car.

His body blindly led him toward the back of the school building. Kian came here to smoke last year, and though he'd been trying to break the habit, old habits die hard. Walking slowly and silently, he pulled his water bottle out of his bag, taking a few sips, then putting it back. His feet came to a stop when he reached the spot. It was likely the headmaster as well as most if not all of the professors knew he smoked on campus, but no body seemed to care too much. Maybe it was because they didn't know how to help him.

Lighting up a cig, he took a breath, slowly releasing the puff while closing his eyes. What did he do wrong? Being farther away had taken away most of the emotion he'd gotten from being with Astrid, and he was now able to think. What'd made her feel that way? "Damn it," he muttered, punching his hand hard against the wall, then just standing there as he kept puffing. As he finished his cig, now completely recovered from Astrid's emotional surge, he felt relaxed, from the combination of alcohol and nicotine in his body. He made his way back to his room, changing his clothes into a different uniform, applying cologne and brushing his teeth. He then made his way to the cafeteria.

His eyes found Lucy immediately, and after making a quick eye contact with her, he made her way towards her. He had said they were going to get lunch, but he assumed he wouldn't freak her out.

Quinn's eyes shut for a few seconds, taking a deep breathe to drive away the screaming pain, then opened his eyes again. They were planted on the chair, the now empty chair. Where had the girl gone? His eyes searched the room, sweeping left and right in shock, until they fell back upon her, now making her way toward him. As she arrived next to him, he saw her look him over, taking in his appearance, and he did the same. He cleared his face of the pained expression, and pushed on a bit of a smirk. Why had this girl taken in interest in the stranger who bumped into her chair?

He nodded slowly, taking in her concerned expression. Why was she so concerned? His eyes searched hers for some type of hint, but finding nothing. "I'm Quinn, and I'm fine," he said, but as he said this he could still feel the stinging pain of each mark. He'd have to change soon, or the wet marks on his back would become evident.

Tiffany let out a sigh as she stared at her notebook. No ideas were coming to her. It was so hard to find a decent prank that won't get her in trouble or killed. This is why she needed Astrid. She was good at coming up with things like that. She could pull a prank on Lucy, Her reaction in the end was always hilarious. But people liked her too much. They would be all over Tiffany. It was a huge mess that she didn't want to deal with at this current time. Annabelle was also fun to prank, but Astrid had a strict no-no on that one as well. Which didn't leave very many choices. When Astrid shows up she could as her.

"What are you planning, Tiff?" Speak of the devil Tiffany thought. She looked up at her friend. There was a devious smirk on her chest that made her very happy. It meant that Astrid was ready to plan a prank. "Nothing! I can't think of anyone decent to prank," Tiffany said shutting the notebook. They have practically pranked everyone and done every prank known to man. Coming up with a new one was going to be hard. Astrid took a spot near the windowsill just as Tiffany has done.

Then a thought came to her head. Freshman. It was always easy to prank the freshman. And they could do small simple things that won't cause too much damage. "Tiff, if you had the choice between someone you really like and someone you have sex with, who would you choose?" Tiffany raised and eyebrow up at Astrid. Where the hell did that question come from? she thought to herself. They didn't really have conversations like this, but Tiffany did have an answer. "Someone I like. The sex would be ten times better." she replied opening the trick not book back up. Now she had an idea of who she wanted to prank.

Some kid came over and gave Astrid a drink and it made her laugh. Astrid practically had the entire school wrapped around her tiny little finger. Except for Tiffany. They always had this mini battle of popularity. Neither of them will follow each other around like little lap dogs. But when they are together, they are force that shouldn't be reckoned with. "So, what's the plan, mi amiga?" her friend asked of her. "We prank all the new freshman. They won't see it coming and it is a great welcoming gift" she said with a smile. "I just don't know what the prank should be."

Jeremiah's attention was still on the other girls. Lucy wasn't jealous, she just wanted to get out of the cafeteria. Of course not being rude, she was going to let Jeremiah talk to the girls as long as he wants. It was a trait that Lucy wish she didn't have. If she was a rude bitch like most everyone already thinks she is, then Jeremiah and her would have already left the cafeteria. A sigh escaped her lips and she looked down at the ground as they spoke. Just then a guy crashed into one of the girls. It was Quinn. Head of her house. They didn't talk much, but it isn't like they would want to talk to each other. They could barely talk to other people. But now there was one girl left that needed to be gone. Just then her phone vibrated. It was from Kyle. Which is strange since Lucy was just thinking about him.

He was inviting her to dinner with him and his brother, Robert. And where Robert goes, Annabelle follows. So it was a dinner of four. Two people, Lucy cared about and one that Lucy won't even give a second thought too. Nothing could possibly go wrong. Except for everything. She sighed and send a reply back. She wasn't going to reject them. They were the closet thing to a 'family' that she could get. She was going to go to this dinner.

To:Kyle
From:Lucy
Dinner sounds good


The message sent and she pocketed the phone. Her entire day was booked up. Breakfast with Jeremiah. Lunch with Kian. Dinner with Kyle and Robert. Today she was miss popular. Wonder what Tiffany would have to day about that. she thought. She turned her head to look at Tiffany and saw that she was talking to Astrid. Her only friend. They were always plotting something. Many time Tiffany has tried pranking her, but it has ended badly for her. And now Lucy knows what their pranks look like. Turning her head back to Jeremiah she saw that he wasn't moving from his spot. And this other girl was going to continue talking to him. Just then she made eye contact with her other friend. Kian. Finally someone was coming to save her.

She stepped away from Jeremiah and started walking toward him. He was moving toward her as well and they eventually met in the middle. The automaton facade that she put up for the girls had gone away. Her bright green eyes had a bit of happiness and relief filled in it. Her thoughts were coming back in a random fashion and she didn't know how to handle her thoughts moving that fast. But she didn't let that show. She gave her friend a small smile. "Hey" she said simply. "We weren't supposed to meet until lunch," she joked.

The Russian had taken and scored over thirty shots before he noticed someone watching him. When he was on the field it was as if nothing else existed except him, the ball and the goal.

When Vas' eyes finally left the ball to see who was watching him he was in the middle of a shot and his accuracy suffered harshly. The ball after leaving his foot took a high arc and went wide of the goal. "Shit" he murmured under his breath as he jogged off the field and toward the bleacher where the ball had landed. As he approached the seat the man who had been watching him made his way over.

"Thats quite the leg you got their kid." Man said as he extended his hand.
"Thank you sir" Said Vas as he shook the man's hand firmly with a confused look on his face.
"Well look I don't want to take you way from your practice or anything but we're starting a youth soccer team in town, and I was wondering if you would stop by and show the kids a thing or two. They could learn a lot from someone as talented as you."
The man seemed sincere and slightly desperate
"I..I'd love too" A look of embarrassment on Vas' face was soon over taken by wide grin at the thought of being able to help kids pursue their passion for soccer.
"Great! thank you so much, We start practice today after the kids get out of school and we have it 3 times a week, hope to see you there!" The man walked away dialing a number into his cell phone to make a call as Vas finished collecting the ball which by now had rolled deep underneath the bleacher.

"Well at least i don't have to worry about finding something to do after class" He thought to himself still smiling.

The Russian had worked up quite the thirst during his work out and began to feel slightly dehydrated. So he made his way back inside in search of water and in the hopes of spreading his newly found good mood.

Soon after reentering the school Vas saw what he could only describe as an awkward situation. He noticed a girl was pinned against a wall by boy slightly shorten than himself and although they were close in face they didn't appear to be having a relationship moment, but then again Vas wasn't in the best position to judge so he simply decided to walk past the two with soccer ball in hand and continue on his way.

Once again Vassi found himself in the cafeteria only this time the sea of people was less dense and more people were seated with only and handful standing up. He immediately noticed someone he had seen from earlier, A girl in a red beanie with blonde hair, She seemed much more alive now then she had earlier in the day and he swore to himself that even saw her smile a little as she exited the cafeteria with a boy who was similar in height to himself. As she passed him they exchanged a smile and continued in their different directions.

He continued on his way to the vending machine with his track pants making a "swishing" noise with every step. when he finally reached the machine he stopped in front of it and starred at it with a puzzled look on his face. "Umm how do I get water out of this thing without breaking it" he pondered. It had been three years for him since he had used one of these and he wasn't quite sure what to do. As he looked around he noticed 5 people relatively near him, on one side it was the guy and the girl with the dog he walked past earlier this morning. They seemed to be enjoying each others company so he decide it was best not to bother them. On the other side of him were three girls one sitting by herself reading a book and the other two sitting by a window. Vas decided it would be these two he would ask for help not knowing any better.

"Excuse me could either of you ladies show me how to operate that machine over there" His Russian accent accidentally slipped through as he pointed to the vending machine with an embarrassed smile on his face his.

Jeremiah Raimin

Jeremiah smiled the way he usually does when someone acts some what odd around him. Riley was acting odd but then again this might be the way she acts normally. "Oh yea, everything's good over here." she said after his comment. "Good I'm glad."
He then introduced himself to Alice and she asked about his finger. Then right as he was about to answer she gets bumped into but a man I believe she name is Quinn or something like that. So she takes off after him but not before Lucy stands behind me and is probably making a slightly lost face. The her phone goes off leaving just Riley and Jeremiah. Riley asked about the boy and then asked about going into the town. Jeremiah didn't see a problem and checked his watch.
"I believe that mans name is Quinn or something of that nature. Also sadly as much as I would enjoy taking you into town it getting quite close to first class. No worries you don't need a book for this class but just in case you need them I always take notes." He laughed a little bit like that was somehow funny.

Andrei Stepanov

Andrei was walking to the front office like it was no other day. Scarlett was being very quiet and Dre wondered if she had something on her mind. He was about to ask her when his phone went off. It was Astrid looking to make a plan for a little downtime later. He had no objections. It usually ended being a small two person party. He texted her back\

From Dre
to Astrid
You know me well how can I deny my kryptonite.


He put his phone back in its case and looked over at Scarlett. He had to see if something was wrong. He grabed her wrist and pulled her to the side. "Are you alright? Your acting kinda funky?"

The freshman; Astrid smirked.

Freshman were the kids who got her lattes, punching bags turned punchers, and Astrid was all for a little lesson in humility. It was a trait not many Dreist students had. She was already brewing up a scheme that Tiff would be more than happy to put into motion. "Well, orientation is before lunch, and I think they may be a bit hungry, but they'd have to earn it, of course. Now how they will pay the price is up to you, Tiff." Astrid planned, sipping on her favorite latte. Some of the Driest freshman had qualities she liked to see, but she would have to test them all to give them a seal of approval.

As soon as she went to continue, her phone buzzed. It was from Andre, calling her kryptonite. He was right, she hadn't found a single boy that could resist her charms.

To: Dre
From: Star

Call me Kryptonite. See you tonight, 'Dre (;


As her manicured fingers taped away, a Russian-accented boy asked Tiffany and herself for help on the vending machine. Tiff would have been all for flaunting her body as she bent to catch the boy's choice, but Astrid wouldn't give herself the pleasure. "Of course, though I have to ask why you could get it yourself." Astrid sneered, but only in a playful way. She returned with the boy to the machine and tapped away to get him the water he desired. As he went to get it, she scanned him.

This boy wasn't unattractive, though there was the quirkiness of a Ruhig student. "Astrid," she said as she extended her hand. She would have this boy wrapped around her finger before Tiffany could blink. They were always in a mini-competition for popularity, but for her, it was getting people to like her, not getting people to know her. Astrid's biggest pet peeve was having someone dislike or hate her. Once the boy revealed his name to be Vassi, she clicked her nails against her cheek. "I suppose you're new here, considering I've never seen you before. He certainly had a fit body that would bode well during combat class. She fluffed her hair and tried to focus her attention on the boy when she already had a lot on her mind. There was the event from earlier, and the choice between Andre and Kian, which was beginning to figure itself out, so it was hard to focus, especially with a lingering pain in the back of her head.

"Of course, though I have to ask why you could get it yourself." one of the girls said mockingly, Vas rubbed the back of his neck and chosen to treat the question as rhetorical because he knew the answer would sounds ridiculous. The girl returned with the him to the machine and tapped away to get him the water he desired. "Thunk" the sound of the water bottle exiting the machine brought an even bigger smile to his face. Putting the soccer ball down on the ground Vas quickly opened the bottle taking a quick sip before the girl spoke again.

"Astrid," she said as she extended her hand.
"Vassi, nice to meet you"he responded shaking her hand gently and like a gentleman for such was the way he had been taught.

Vas glanced over the girl taking in her image and noticing all the apparent effort she put into her appearance. He took a mental note of everything, from the makeup and glossed lips on her well proportioned face to the manicured nails on her fingers and took another sip of his water.

"I suppose you're new here, considering I've never seen you before."
Yea, you could say that, you are the second person I've met all day." "Well really third If you count that girl but i still didn't get her name. his thoughts began to focus on Eleanor and noticing this he quickly shifted his focus back to the present.
"Thank you for this by the way, it was really nice of you to help me, I guess I kinda owe you a favor now." he said with a slight laugh as they walked back over to the table from which they came. Vas wasn't one for taking kindness lightly since he hadn't received much of it in his life, and he did his best to repay his debts.

On their way back to to the table Vas saw what appeared to be a micro expression of pain pierce through the girls near perfect facade.
"Is anything bothering you?" he asked instinctually without fully realizing the invasion of privacy he was committing.

Tiffany love Astrid with to the full extent of whatever she believes about love, but when it came to popularity, they became instant rivals that it was almost funny. A new guy walked back asking them for assistance and it was like Astrid completely forgot that Tiffany was sitting next to her. Plotting the evil things they were going to do to freshman. Tiffany smirked to herself and stood up with the two others.

"Astrid,"
"Vassi, nice to meet you"

"I'm Tiffany," she attempts to pitch in, but it seems that Astrid has the boy's full attention, so she waits for an opportunity to go in and steal him away. Not that she wanted him. Although he was very cute. A complexion the resembled her own. Pearly whites and tall. All the things Tiffany finds attractive. "I suppose you're new here, considering I've never seen you before." Sounds like flirting, but Tiffany knew Astrid. Astrid just wants her popularity to be known and to do that, she gets people to like her. Yea, you could say that, you are the second person I've met all day." 'Guess that makes me third..' she thinks to herself. But he wasn't paying attention to her. "Thank you for this by the way, it was really nice of you to help me, I guess I kinda owe you a favor now."

Tiffany had to refrain from rolling her eyes. She sat back down at the table pretending as if she never saw the two. She would ge t her chance to speak to him and win the spotlight, but not while Astrid was present. She was way too fast and Tiffany liked to work slow. So she sits there and waits.

Lucy didn't speak for the entire twenty minutes that Kian was talking about the book. She petted the cat that was occupying her lap. This was a regular thing. Kian has a conversation with himself while she keeps the cat company. It was a nice deal. They could be alone without feeling lonely. Lucy liked it and it seemed that Kian did too since he was always initiated that times they would hang out. Eventually he stopped talking, ending his explanation. She processed everything that he was saying and then nodded to signal that she understood everything she said. Which she did.

For a moment they sat in silence as Lucy tried to come up with a response. Talking to Kian wasn't easy. He always had stories to tell and interesting things to say, but when it was Lucy's turn she didn't even come close. Which is another reason why she just listens. Interacting with other people wasn't always her thing. She enjoyed the background. It was comfortable. Easier to cope with. She was able to hide her demons in there. Where no one would try and look for them. 'What was I just thinking about....dang it..' she reprimands to herself. Her runaway thoughts always get the best of her in the worse situation.

She sipped her coffee. Lucy was more of a tea gal, but she enjoyed to occasional cup that she happens to only drink around Kian. "What other interesting things have you done recently?" I offer. Maybe that will spark up another lecture. Or result in her having to give out details of her life. She doesn't do that. Or at least doesn't plan too. Her cellphone goes off and she checks it quickly. It's from Kyle. She starts a message.
To: Kyle
From: Lucy
Sure. And Robert will grow up eventually


The message was sent and I started to compose another. To Robert.
To: Robert
From:Lucy
Eat Breakfast.

The message was short. Simple. And gets to the point. No need for a hello. Robert knew me better than that. Finally done with the cellular device, Lucy puts it in her pocket and directs her attention back to Kian.

Astrid could practically feel the jealousy clouding around Tiffany.

She had to admit, Tiffany knew a lot more people, but Astrid considered popularity to be the most people that liked you, not how many people knew you. She kept a perfect composure that not many could break; trying to figure out relationships, and pain, was one of those few things. For some reason, this Vassi character could see through her perfect composure.

"I'm fine, thank you for asking. Though, I do have a favor to ask of you." Astrid leaned in close to Tiffany's ear before she left, "Make sure all the heads are in on initiation, you and I are going to have a little fun in the labyrinth." The labyrinth was a large maze which only head boys and girls knew the way out of. Tiff and Astrid would tell the heads it was an initiation for Eltz, and at the end, Astrid and Tiff would have a few upperclassmen boys waiting to chase them into the freezing lake water. Most of the heads would be furious, but Astrid and Tiff would not take the blame, as the girls would use their skills of seduction. It was the prefect prank for a new year, and they had just enough time to do it after lunch, when orientation swung around. With a flicker of her fingers, Astrid somewhat forced Vassi to follow her, though she didn't physically.

Once they were outside in the quad, mostly alone, her eyes narrowed. "Something about you is off, darling, but I can't quite decide what. Why don't you tell me?" Astrid asked, folding her arms in front of her chest. She didn't like secrets, and didn't keep many herself. She felt secrets were lies.

The need for truth triggered her powers to activate. Her eyes became white, as they usually did, and Astrid felt a sense of her body being taken from her. Even though this was a school for powers, showing off powers wasn't an ability she wanted taken from her. She wanted control, so she could be in control; but just like that, the god of justice and truth, Tyr, took over her body. She lost feeling in one of her hands. Vassi couldn't lie to her, and as a part of Astrid's peronsality, she would be able to detect his secrets.

With a look of confusion labeled on his face Vas watched as Astrid whispered something into her friends ear and motioned him to follow her. He paused contemplating the choice and decided he had nothing better to do until classes started so he followed here, but not before politely introducing himself to the girl who hadn't had the opportunity to say much. "Im gonna go but my name is Vassi" He paused to receive the girls name with his hand extended "Its nice to have met you Tiffany." he said while gently shaking her hand in the same fashion as he did with the Astrid before.

Vas now picked up his soccer ball and allowed Astrid to lead the way outside into the quad. Her eyes narrowed on him bringing a sense of unease with her glare before opening her mouth to speak. "Something about you is off, darling, but I can't quite decide what. Why don't you tell me?" The question was so broad and would've been impossible to answer with a single response, "Well thats a tough one, I spent 3 years on a desolate and dying planet in an alternate dimension, everyone I love is dead or is ashamed of my existence..." his thoughts continued searching for the most complete and simple answer but as he thought about himself and what others would considered odd about him he noticed a disturbing change in Astrid demeanor. Her eyes became a blank white and Vas felt an energy resonating from her due to his sensitive to atomic particles.

"Umm Astrid is everything alright?" was what he wanted to ask but his mind was flooded by her previous question and it felt as if he couldn't sustain a separate thought until he answered her out loud.
"I spent the last earth year in an alternate dimension on a desolate and hellish planet called Homdale. Homdale revolves around its star 3 times faster than earth revolves around the sun. There the air is thicker the gravity is more intense and alpha predators have wiped out all other inhabitants except plant species. My brother and I were forced to survive being hunted and attacked by these creatures we took to calling Vulcari do to their terrifying resemblance to to the Russian demons of legend, and after three years of this hell my brother and I escaped. He was lost in a dimensional rift, I alone survived and wound up here..."
As Vas spoke it was as if his words forced him to relive his hellish experience. Once he finished he couldn't believe all that had just come out of his mouth and his eyes lowered into a hateful stare as he placed his hands on her shoulders "What did you just do to me!" he said demanding an answer from the essence possessing Astrid.

Vassi wasn't one to normally get anger or even show the slightest hint of anger but with the experience of the Homdale now fresh on his mind he reacted instinctually.

Astrid had never blacked out before and she assumed her powers had stopped working. So when Vassi yelled, quite angrily, to ask what she'd done to her, she was really confused and didn't like that he was yelling.

"I'm sorry, darling, I don't know what you're talking about. I didn't do anything." She growled, but only out of confusion. Astrid could be quite vicious when she's confused. After he answered her however, she felt like it was time for class: a head's intuition.

"Shit. We have to go, it's time for class." Astrid told him, extending a warm hand and a pretty smile. He had to be suspicious but she honestly hadn't heard anything of what he said. For her, it was a worry that her powers were changing and that she would lose the small control she had on them. For others, it was that power that was so hard to control that could make her dangerous. She would have to talk to Professor Lawrence, or even Headmaster Ryan. She would have to tell him about the diner ordeal soon enough.

On their way, she made sure to text Kian and Annabelle so they'd realize it was time for class. She also sent one to the rest of the heads, excluding Eleanor and Kyle, as they were usually in class before her. She took her time to show Vassi some of the castle on the way to the class. There was a large garden seen just out a window, and the mountains they were settled on were just about everywhere. Instead of independent study, she thought about hiking up to one of the peaks, but that would only be allowed on weekends, when they had free time. They strolled into the classroom, just missing the bell by a few minutes.

Granted, if they'd walked a bit faster, they might have made it, but Astrid was in no hurry. The Treu guardian, Jimmy, had transformed into a cat and was sleeping, which was incredibly adorable, but also meant free time. She would have to go outside to use her power, and decided to spring out her mythology book. She would use independent study later to practice using her powers, and meet Andrei later. She pondered on having dinner with him, but she decided against it, fearing the friends with benefits would turn into something else.

Instead, she would grab a bottle or two of strong wine from the cellar in the castle and toast to the freedom of flings.

"Shit. We have to go, it's time for class." Astrid told Vas, extending a warm hand and a pretty smile. He glared with suspicion at the girl who now appeared to be her normal self again and gently moved her hand away from him while taking a step back creating a considerable distance between the two. "Lead the way then." he said nodding in the direction of the hallways. Vas kept his distance away from her as she slowly lead the way to class taking what seemed to be the long scenic route.

When the professor said it was a free day, Ellie knew exactly what that meant. She would have to help the newer members of her house while Jimmy turned into a kitten on her desk and watched the moving picture that she used her power on. It wasn't long until her best friend turned to a kitten and fell asleep on her desk. She rolled her eyes before petting his back.

Eleanor grapped her notebook out of her bag and looked through the pictures for one that would keep him calm and relaxed. Once she found one of a large willow tree with a wind chime on it, blowing in the wind as the sun was setting in the background. She waved her hand of the picture to bring it to life before smiling back at Jimmy and petting his head softly one more time before a group of people came towards her and started asking her to help them. At first she told them that she busy and had something else to do but, she soon found herself roped into explaining the lesson to them while looking down at Jimmy and stuttering a few times.

"Eleanor, are you okay?" The younger girls asked if she was okay before looking at her in worry.
"I'm fine, I just need a minute." The girls nodded before turning around towards each other as Ellie took a deep breath before turning back to her desk,trying to hide her embarrassment. She was just happy that Jimmy wasn't awake to see her have one of her 'stutterfest'.

She started tapping her foot and her fingers in a pattern, trying to calm her anxiety. She looked up towards the clock which was right above the door right when Astrid and the boy she had seen earlier in the day.
She sighed sharply. "Of course." Knowing that Astrid probably already had him wrapped around her pretty little finger. Not that she was surprised, she was everything a guy wanted. She quickly turned her gaze down towards her book while trying to stop her cheeks from turning red with even more embarrassment. She was trying to calm herself down, but everything her therapist told her to try wasn't helping.

So, she quickly stood up and walked out of the room. She needed to get some air.


To Vas' dismay he and Astrid arrived late and had missed the lesson so again the Russian glared at the girl this time without her noticing his narrowed eyes on the back of her head. "You owe me some answers." was the thought rambling through his mind but as he glared at her he noticed a familiar face exiting the class room. It was the girl who had bumped into him in line.

Immediately forgetting his current disdain for Astrid he hastily attempted to catch up to the girl before she got to far with the intent to strike up conversation, but still realizing he was in his practice clothes Vas stopped a few feet short of the girl to see if he passed the smell test. "Hmm not too bad" His scent was that of a slight man smell, because the cold outdoor air kept him from sweating too much during his exercise. "Better safe than sorry" was his final thought before looking to find that the girl who was now no where to be seen.

"Just my luck, now which way did she go?" Vas was now at an intersection in the hallways, he looked to his left and saw nothing but the day light sun shining through windows of the halls. Next was the right and down the hall a little ways was the girl who was still walking and carrying her books. "Excuse me, Ms." he called hoping his voice would carry down the hall as he lightly jogged to catch up to her.

Upon reaching her he couldn't help but let out a smile of relief before saying "You walk quite fast, are you in Hurry? He paused for a second to see if her answer was yes before continuing "Im sorry i don't mean to bother you it's just I never got your name earlier before you rushed off, Im Vassi Its a pleasure to meet you."
