Shit.

Jimmy considered all the reasons he shouldn't be inside the headmaster's office at that moment, and yet, doing what he went in there to do compelled him. One of the Ruhig students, which was a surprise to Jimmy, had asked him to get into the headmaster's office for a specific book he'd left during a visit. Hell, he felt for the kid: he was tripping over himself in shyness and his voice barely rose over a whisper. That's how he found himself staring Headmaster Ryan in the mirror, trying to find the book in the plethora of books scattered in the chaotic office.

Why did Jimmy have to be the go-to biomorpher?

There were at least three other people on campus that could shapeshift into other humans. One in particular, Amy, could only shift into women, but most students knew him as "the boy could can't say no".

Jimmy looked about the room and could not find the book the boy was yearning for. He checked where the boy had originally told him the book was several times, scoured the desk, and even skimmed the bookshelf. He couldn't believe that the large mythology book would be this hard to find. He checked his watch for the time the headmaster usually came back from lunch; he still had fifteen minutes to search.

"Are you looking for this?" Headmaster Ryan looked himself in the eye.

Double shit.

"If I had to guess, it's... James, James Lawson." Jimmy let his body morph back to its original form, his head hung in shame. The headmaster only took it in a light-hearted fashion. "Son, you have to learn to say no!" The man laughed, slinging his arm around the younger boy's shoulder.

Headmaster Ryan knew most of the Guardians, especially Treu guardians, kept their heart on their sleeve and would help anyone, even if it meant they got in trouble as well. Jimmy was one of those people. Unfortunately, since it was the second time Jimmy had been caught using his power to break into rooms, the headmaster had to punish him. Jimmy had to take an extra hour out of his free time for mental control, one of his worst classes. Jimmy didn't understand the mental aspect of his power, and often replicated details falsely; just a few minutes ago he replicated Headmaster Ryan with two pinkies instead of a ring finger.

Once Jimmy was allowed to leave, he groaned; he hated mental control class. Granted, Professor Lawrence was a great teacher, he just didn't like classes he didn't understand. He was careful to not take his anger out on the freshman, whose words of thanks gushed out of his mouth when he returned the book.

Maybe something good did come out of it.

August didn't care much for grading, and he dreaded the thought of reading. Which is why he never understood what possessed him to start dealing out essays as punishments.

This week his students seemed to be rather rebellious, some had been talking during his class, others having fallen asleep. A few students from the Mutige house even attempted to pull a prank on him, placing a few thumbtacks on his seat. Supposedly to leak out a few projections out of the teacher. All that had lead to Augustus being up to his eyeballs in papers. He always asked for students to write about their powers, so at the very least he could gain something out of it, but even that interesting topic was hard for him to read about. He could swear that most these kids get into trouble just because they knew he hated actually having to read these essays.

It only took reading another essay before Augustus gave up, sitting back in his chair and stretching out, throwing his glasses onto the messy pile of papers on his desk. He just stared up at the ceiling, zoning out as he often did when alone.

He went to his own little place, somewhere in the ocean. The water felt cool and small waves made him sway from side to side, he could see the coral reef and the colorful fish that inhabited it. As he imagined it, he slowly began to see it before him, the room being transformed to the underwater landscape. If he looked up, he could no longer see the ceiling of the room, rather the top of the water, reflecting light onto the reef. August always enjoyed the ocean, finding the concept of this vast space rather relaxing.

A phone call was all it took for the projection to crash, snapping back to reality. The call was to inform him that he'd be working with a Jimmy Lawson for an hour after class. Not that Augustus minded much, he really did enjoy what he did, and it wasn't like he had much of a social life, he was only ever around students. If need be he'd help students into the night, only wanting they're success in his class. Jimmy was one of the students who struggled with the whole mental control, but just like the other students, August was sure that with some practice, he could get it down someday.

Once he hung up, Augustus was right back into his place in the ocean, the room disappearing behind his projection, enjoying the scene while he was still alone.

#, as written by Agent
The cab drove away leaving Alice before a long cobblestone driveway leading up to a castle. A bloody castle! They hadn't been kidding when they'd mentioned it in the letter. The plaque by the front gate confirmed that it was Eltz Academy, she hadn't been sure the German cab driver had understood most of what she was saying but he seemed to have recognised the school's name at least. She propped the small cardboard box she was carrying on her hip and adjusted the strap of the duffel bag on her shoulder. This was it, no backing out now. Alice started her way up the driveway.

...

A short while later, and a half decent little walk, Alice stood in the foyer, or front office, or whatever, of the Academy. She let her bag slip off her shoulder and drop heavily onto the floor in front of desk startling the administrator from her work.

"Hi," Alice grinned, placing her box on the counter.

"Hello," the administrator replied, recovering from her surprise. "What can I do for you?"

Thank heavens, the woman speaks English. "Ender. Alice Ender. I'm enrolling this semester."

"Oh, yes! Miss Ender. If you just want to take a seat, I'll organise a copy of your class schedule and your dorm allocation details."

"Ta," Alice picked up her box and bag and went to take a seat in the corner, but paused and turned back. "Ergonomic."

"I'm sorry?"

"Ergonomic. I couldn't remember the word. You know for those office chairs that are supposed to be good for your back or whatever? Anyway, maybe you should try one. I don't know, it might help."

With that Alice went and took a seat with her box and her bag, leaving a slightly puzzled administrator to return to her work and her sore back.
Humming tunelessly, Alice gazed around at the room bouncing her feet on the floor with nervous energy. She smiled seemingly contently while mentally she was reinforcing the block in her mind. She hadn't been transferring this time, pain was a strong motivator in learning control and most of the time she no longer unconsciously transfer it onto herself, but she had let the sense of it become distracting. A more frequent occurrence since the accident. With some concentration all the little lights of pain in her minds eye dimmed to an ignorable but still comfortingly present level, and she continued to survey the plush décor of the old German castle.

The door to the headmaster's office opened and two people came out. One was assumedly the headmaster, the other, a young guy carrying a book and looking slightly shamefaced, she guessed was a student. The student left the lobby quickly and the headmaster crossed the room to speak with the administrator who then gestured in Alice's direction. He turned towards her, "Miss Ender?"

"That's me." Alice hopped to her feet and shifted her box under one arm to accept his proffered hand in a firm handshake.

"It's good to hear your finally joining us." She'd put off accepting her letter and then the accident had happened and she'd My name is Jacob Ryan, I'm the Headmaster here at Eltz."

"Sweet," she acknowledged, then hesitated. Despite her usual confidence she was suddenly nervous behind her smile. She hadn't really ever taken her various encounters with her previous headmaster seriously but Eltz Academy was different, and aside from Tessa she'd never been around others like herself. "So you, uh... have powers too?"

"Yes, but all that in due time. For the moment you should concentrate on getting settled in. I've been told the copy of you enrolment information is ready, let's see if we can find someone to show you around?"

"If you say so."

Riles released a puff of air that was confined in her cheeks. She was actually here. She would have never thought there were others like her. More or less, a school. Riley always thought that she was the freak. She looked up at the academy, no wait scratch that. It was more of a castle than a building for learning. A bark snapped her out of her gaze and she looked to see that Caramel was already at the doors waiting for her. She rolled her eyes at the golden brown puppy. "Alright I'm coming." Riles said picking up the things she had on the ground and went up to the doors.

As soon as Riley opened the door, Caramel zoomed into the school yipping about, trying to attract everyone's attention. "Why do I get the feeling you're more excited than me?" Riley muttered and continued to walk. I don't know about you but Riley was really hoping their would be this huge sign that said OFFICE. But alas, there wasn't so she had to walk around a bit before she actually found it.

Riley walked in with little Caramel at her heels. Well flats technically speaking. But back to the subject at hand. It didn't take a genius to know who the Principal was in the room. He just emanated power and respect. Having amazing abilities just adds onto it. Well assuming everyone in the school had an ability. Riley decided to go talk to the administrator since the Principal was talking to someone. Moving Caramel with her foot -she was just lying on her feet- she went up to the desk.

"Um, hi. I'm Riley. I'm new here and I need my schedule and dorm room."

The lady looked up from the task that she was doing. "Oh goody! You're the second one in the hour. My do they come fast! What was you're name again?" "Uh, It's Riley Ruth. R-I-L-E-Y and Ruth as in Babe Ruth the baseball player." You have no idea how many times Riley has been asked if she was related to Babe Ruth. If she had a penny for every time she heard that she would probably have bought her own car. "Okay Miss Ruth just sit tight and I'll get your things ready." Riley nodded and set her things down and looked at Caramel with a grin.

"We're finally here."

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.

Jeremiah Raimin



Jeremy was looking forward to the start of the new year. It was his second at Eltz academy and he enjoyed learning about these new students. He got up and grabbed his newest reading material and opened to the page he left off at. He put on his sweat pants and a long sleeve shirt. He opened the curtains and look upon the grounds. He smiled as the sun filled the room. "Today should be perfect for a nice jog." He spoke out loud though he was sure no one could really hear him. "Maybe i'll get to meet some of the newer students and observe them."

He made it through the school quickly making sure not to bump into anyone though his eyes seemed to looking down at the book. He reached the front doors and looked around. He didn't see anyone around, at least someone he hadn't meet before. He decided he would run his path backwards. So he took off jogging while his book still in his hands and his eyes scanning through the pages. He found it easier to exercise when he was reading.

By the time he made it all the way around the castle it was getting close to being around 8 am. He made his way up to his room and took a shower. He put the book away and dressed in something more appropriate. He walked down the stairs and took a seat by the main office watching as people came through. He saw the dog who seemed rather excited and its owner who seemed less excited. "Interesting." He muttered to himself. "Wonder what house that woman will be in. Wonder if Ruhig will gain any new faces."

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.

Beep! Beep! Beep! Lucinda groaned and rolled over pulling the pillow over her ear, in hopes to drown out the sound. Beep! Beep! Beep! It just kept getting louder. Sighing to removed the pillow and sat up in the bed. Quickly, she shut off the cursed alarm clock and took in her surroundings as her eyes adjusted to the light shining in her room. For a moment she forgot where she was, but then she remembered. Germany. Eltz Academy. Letter. It was coming back to her almost as if it was a bad dream. Unlike some freshman, she moved into her house early. It was to avoid the awkward goodbyes she would have to give her mother and father in front of the other people. They wouldn't understand.

Watching the time tick away on her clock she decided it was time to get up and attempt to get her day started. Lucy shuffled into the bathroom avoiding Lucky, her cat. She didn't want her feet to be all scratched up before she had the chance to get shoes on. After her personal business was complete she came back into her room to get dressed. It may not seem like it, but Lucy does like to dress nice. And it takes her just as long to get dressed as any other normal girl. Despite her need to break the code, Danielle would kill her. She was serious about the rules and that wasn't a voice she wanted to hear in the morning.

Lucy checked herself in the mirror and added her signature maroon beanie. Walking over to her night stand she pulled out a bottle that contained blue pills. Lucky mewed at her before she popped two in. Although these are supposed to help, she prays that she won't have to speak to anyone. She grabbed her phone and room keys before walking out into the hall. People were already mingling. Checking her phone for the time forced a sigh to escape her lips. It was too early in the morning for people to be striking up a conversation. What is there to talk about? Everyone just woke up. It's not like the sleeping position everyone was in is important.

Her stomach rumbled and she needed breakfast. For a strange reason her thoughts went out to Kian. He would surely bring her breakfast and keep her company until it was time to part ways. 'He is busy being head boy. Pick another person.' her thoughts told her. Quickly Jeremiah came to mind. She didn't know what he was doing, but he would surely get breakfast with her. But she decided against it and just started heading toward the cafeteria to get tea. If either of them wanted to talk to her right now, they would know how to find her. Follow the path of the maroon beanie.

OOC: I edited this. I forgot something important to my character that needed to be added.

Danielle woke up to the sound of her alarm groaning she turned it off and crawled out of bed "god I hate mornings" she mumbled as she walked towards the bathroom. She shook her head tossing her hair to the side, as she flicked the light switch on in the bathroom she stared at the mirror and looked at her hair which tody was a kind of light blue. "do I wanna dye it today?" she thought to herself as she twirled it around her fingers. She shook her head and walked over to the shower and went about her morning routine. She got dressed and walked out of her room to the main area and looked around to make sure there were no fights she needed to break up. SHe was a guardian for the Kalt houe and she took the job pretty seriously, she tried her best to encourage the students to come to her or a head boy if they needed an issue solved, but she knew people tended to avoid her a fair amount because of her temper. Once deciding that everything was okay she walked over to the cafeteria to get a cup of coffee, she grabbed a cup paid for it and took a sip. "a little too cold" she said and stared at her cup and let the liquid heat up at least another 5 degrees before taking another sip and smiling. Just as she looked up she noticed a familiar maroon beanie. She smiled and walked over towards Lucy and smiled "Hey Lucy how are you this morning?"

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.

Alwin practically kissed the ground as she finally descended from the plane. Normally, she wasn't afraid to fly, but her father had just gotten his pilot's licence and decided to test out his new death-defying craft in true Xiomar fashion, with his daughter in the passenger seat. Ally was surprised how well he did throughout the trip, but that was quickly cast out the window as he decided to show off at the end. His attempt at a maneuver of his own concoction ended with a lopsided, quickly descending plane and a screaming Alwin.

Now that she was on solid land, she felt her strength was returning and she could finally keep a hold of her bags, and her lunch. She looked up after readjusting her top to find her father trying to tame his wild hair with the biggest grin on his face. With a smile and a quick hug, she said her goodbyes, "Thanks for flying me dad, but I think next time I'll just catch a commercial flight."

He answered with a hardly chuckle and a tight squeeze around her shoulders, "You be good. Set a good example for those kids, or they'll end up like me!"

After a few more moments of conversation, Ally finally managed to find herself freed from her dad, but late to meeting her carpool. She rushed along the gates, hoping to catch up quickly. Unfortunately, she didn't know who she was meeting personally. Despite being in the same house, they had run in different circles thus far, though she had heard some physical descriptions from other girls in her year, all of them favorable. Once she'd arrived at the meeting place, she scanned the street and caught sight of a boy that certainly personified the depictions.

He seemed to have noticed her as well and bid her to approach. She returned his handshake with as much grace as she could muster and nodded a thanks for his actions. Suddenly, meeting her fellow head made everything seem real. Being a head girl was an honor for Alwin, and while she didn't doubt her abilities as a leader and example, she did worry about being able to seem approachable to those that need her. With a slight lilt to her voice, she responded, "Hello Quinn. I'm Alwin. It's nice to meet you." Hoping he hadn't caught her momentary lapse in confidence, she settled into the back of car.

Getting into the car hurt. It stung his back. But sitting down was worse. He took his seat on the side opposite of the door in the limo, so he was turned enough to talk to the girl. Sitting down stung, but it wasn't until he sat back that he felt some of his wounds splitting back open. And there was the blood. He cringed for a second, taking a breath to try to get through the pain and turning to the girl. He quickly slid out his phone, shooting a short text to Annabelle. Hey. I'm on my way there. Hang out later? And quickly put it back in his pants.

She looked like her father. Well, at least pictures Quinn had seen. He wasn't sure how his father and her father knew each other, but there was a picture above their fireplace of the two of them together, at some lake house by the look of it.

Come to think of it, this whole thing was pretty weird. He didn't know he would be carpooling with this girl till he landed, and turned his phone back on. His dad had texted him saying there was a girl who would be hitching a ride, a girl in his house, and though he didn't know this at the time, after hearing her name he realized she was his co. Other than that, there wasn't much he knew about her. She was pretty, tall and blonde, but so were many of the girls at Eltz.

Taking another breath to try and ease the pain, Quinn smacked the wall separating the driver and them to signal him to drive. He felt the car start to move, turning back to Alwin. "Are you excited to be head girl?" He asked, his eyes looking her over, not in an intrusive way, but an interested way. He began to wonder thing's about her, as the car went on. Maybe, she'd answer with a long answer and they could talk for the rest of the ride, making it go by fast.

"Hey Lucy how are you this morning?" Lucy looked up from her tea cup to see Danielle looking at her. Smiling and waiting for a response. The pills she took this morning haven't exactly kicked in, so she was a bit out of it. She could see Lucas, her deceased brother, running around behind Danielle acting crazy. Knocking things over and shouting. She half a mind to scream and tell him to shut up, but Danielle was there. Still waiting. 'Don't babble. Don't babble' she kept telling herself over and over again. The smile. It was getting to her. Happiness. Lucas was full of happy.

"I don't know..." she said honestly looking back down at her tea. There was more to say, but she sipped her tea to keep her from speaking. This is why she didn't want to talk to anyone this morning. She didn't hate Danielle, but she didn't want to risk a babbling fit on her behalf. It wasn't worth it. No one was worth it. This is another reason why she enjoyed Jeremiah's company. He would just come over here and sit down. No hello. No good morning. No conversation. Just sitting and drinking tea. It was bliss. But Kian did the same thing almost. He would have conversations with himself. All she had to do was nod.

'Concentrate.' she reprimanded. Her mind was wandering to people that weren't even around. Lucas was stilling bouncing about, but he was slowly fading. It meant the pills were kicking in. She gripped her tea cup harder then necessary and she could feel her claws poking at her skin. She stared at the brown water, avoiding eye contact with Danielle. She took a long sip of her tea before setting it down on the table. There was nothing else to say to Danielle or anyone for that matter. Lucy was long gone and classes haven't even started. She kept her gaze on the tea that was resting on the table. She wasn't shy. Lucy was hiding the her emotions and thoughts that could be read through her eyes.

OOC: Let me know if Lucinda gets too crazy. I mean this is only the beginning and it gets worse, but I don't want to freak people out when I make her babble out loud.

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

Eleanor woke up to the sound of nothing but the sound of her book, The Great Gatsby dropping to the hard wood ground and as it did the Romanian was up. She rose up so quickly before looking to the ground and seeing the cause of the noise. She breathed out and closed her dark brown eyes to calm her now raising heart. "Goddamn it." she whispered. Now that she was up, Ellie picked her book off of the ground and began to walk towards her bookcase. She looked for the proper space to put it right there with the G's. She then knew there was no way she was going to sleep another moment because once she was up, she was up. She walked over the her closet and looked over her numerous pairs of jeans, hoodies, and t-shirts. Before deciding on what to wear for the day. And, with her clothes in her hand, she walked into the restroom to take a shower. And for the next ten minutes Eleanor just let the warm water relax her from the morning scare. After washing herself up the Romanian turned off the water, grabbed her white towel and wrapped it around her small and thin body before stepping out of the shower and into the steamed bathroom.

She wiped the mirror down to see her reflection before putting the towel around her light brown hair, she brushed her hand through her newly cut hair and sighed. "I can't believe I cut my hair." She had just cut her hair not long ago and she still couldn't believe that she went through with it. She reached out for her clothes and slipped on her gray sweater and jumped into her rather new dark wash skinny jeans. After doing so, she began to dry her hair and began to watch it start dry. Which took about another couple minutes with her hair dryer on low. She grabbed towards her gray beanie and put it on before walking out of the bathroom, leaving the door open to let the steam all out. While walking, Eleanor grabbed a pair of her sneakers and slipped them on. After that, she sat up and looked into her full length mirror.

She sighed as she looked herself up and down and shook her head as she grabbed her Edgar Allen Poe book and placed it in her old messager bag and walked out of her room, she stopped and grabbed her camcorder before turning it on. As she walked down the hall, she slipped her headphones in and ignored anyone who might be looking in her direction. Once exiting the dorm rooms, she walked to the commons and took a seat on the grass right under a tree that she always sat under in the morning. As she did so, she looked for a blank page in her notebook and began to continue on a picture of a very blurry photograph of her family with her mother and her father and older brother before being left with her grandparents. She never seen her father and brother but was determine to finish this picture in order to know at least what they looked like. Or if it brought back any memories of her hated past. And as much as she wanted to quit trying, she couldn't. She turned her music lower before keeping her eyes steadily on the picture, stapled to the piece of notebook paper to keep it from flying away.

And the longer she set her eyes on the picture, the more blurry her eyes got. The Romanian rubbed her eyes and blinked once or twice before looking in her black leather bag for her sunglasses. And when she looked up she saw one of her best friend, Jimmy. They were different but, they just clicked. She gathered her belongings and walked up behind her best friend and wrapping her arm around his shoulder. "Hello, Jimmy my boy." She said with smile on her face and she took a photo of her best friend before looking down at it and chuckling. "Aw, you look so cute." Her smile turning to a smirk as she said it. She took out her head phones and placed them in her bag before looking back at her friend.

It was awhile before Riles was handed her dorm room number and a black and orange uniform. Riley looked over the papers and squinted at the name at the top. "The Charmante house. Interesting." Rile folded up the paper enough so it could fit into her jean pocket and picked up her things again. "Hello..." Riley looked up to see that it was the girl before that was with the Principal. "...Riley Ruth?" Nice to meet ya, Riles." Riley was taken aback by the nickname. Though it is once of her nicknames, she just met the girl. It takes a while to get that privilege. "You too. I would love to chat but I think I should be going seeing as my dog is leaving me." She said gesturing to the puppy running out of sight.

With that Riles walked out and immediately saw Caramel jumping up and down on a strangers lap. More or less a guy. Riles gasped and whistled grabbing her dogs attention. What made the situation worst was that Caramel just laid her head down -while still on the strangers lap- and whimpered in protest. This just made the situation even more awkward. Riles looked up at the stranger and actual took a good look at him. Dark brown hair and he had a lean build. Not too buff but definitely not lanky. Snapping out of it Rile looked at his face and was immediately absorbed by his eye color which were a vibrant blue. Then Riley came to a realization.

'I'm checking out a stranger. Oh god.'

"Um, I'm sorry about my dog. She's not usually like this. I guess being in a new place has to do with it.

Jeremiah looked up at the girl whos dog had found a spot on his lap. For a minute she didn't notice the dog was gone. Jeremiah took this as a good opportunity to look the dog over. The dog barked but that did not bother him any. Finally the red headed girl walks over "Um, I'm sorry about my dog. She's not usually like this. I guess being in a new place has to do with it." she said. He looked up at her and smiled

"No worries. Your dog seems very friendly and seems to have taken a liking to my lap." He let out a small laugh that if in a crowd would probably been over looked. "Due to your uniform you were given I would assume you in House Charmante. I would like to welcome you to Eltz Academy." His smile came back again for a brief moment. He was wearing his uniform and his coat was buttoned till about the second to last button. He then realize he had been rude asking questions about her without finding out her name. He stood up and placed the dog on the floor next to them. "I'm Jeremiah, I am a second year from House Ruhig. Whats your name?" In the back off his mind he couldn't help but think what was the dogs parentage it obviously had some kind of poodle but other then that who knew. He put out his hand to shake hers if that was something she would do.

He thought about it for a second. Lucy should be up wonder what she was doing. She might be greeting new students but knowing her she was trying to avoid people in the cafeteria. Maybe he would go see her after. Maybe I could this red head Lucy could use more friends.

"No worries. Your dog seems very friendly and seems to have taken a liking to my lap." Riley smiled glad that he wasn't angry with her. You never know what might piss someone off. "Due to your uniform you were given I would assume you in House Charmante. I would like to welcome you to Eltz Academy." Riley looked at the black and orange uniform that she was given and looked at his. They were completely different. Then she registered that he was welcoming her. "It's nice to finally be here." She said 'Especially with others like me.' She thought that part in her head.

"I'm Jeremiah, I am a second year from House Ruhig. Whats your name?" She smiled again but when he stuck out his hand her smile faded. 'Oh no, this is bad.' She mentally gulped and slowly lifted her hand to his. She filled his palm with her own and she hoped that she couldn't feel her shaking. Riley pulled her hand out and put it behind her and coughed awkwardly. "Uh I'm Riley, It's nice to meet you Jeremiah." She rolled on the the balls of her feet not sure what to do next. "Do you think you can show me where the Charmante House is?"

She went to go pick up her bags for the third time today. She was hoping she could just set them down forever. Riley let out a low whistle and Carmael got up and went over to Riley standing next to her. "Lead the way."

After Jimmy took the walk of shame out of the office, he was bombarded by the plethora of people standing outside the front office. Astrid Horn, the Head girl of Driest, with her partner-in-crime Annabelle Watson, and Treu Head Boy Kian McKinley, took one side; Jeremiah Raimin, someone he didn't talk to much, was with a fiery red-head; and finally, a freshman he'd heard about, Alice Ender. Who started the party?

He didn't let the corny joke slip from his lips and gave a friendly wave to all of them, then headed on his way.

Jimmy wanted to take a detour to the cafeteria, to get a hot cup of tea and maybe a bite to eat. However, this changed when he saw Eleanor heading his way.

She was pretty damn beautiful. Jimmy felt more like who he really could be around her; around her, he felt that he could be loud and curious and however the Hell he pleased. That's how she was. Unfortunately, he felt more like a lovestruck puppy following her around, endlessly fascinated by her.

His attention was taken by a freshman wondering how to get to her house. She was a Treu freshman, and he promised to take her to the house after breakfast. Jimmy tried to make her feel welcome by joking that he had a scout's honor. She laughed, and he pointed out on her map where the cafeteria was, promising to meet her there later. Meeting and helping out other students was something Jimmy loved to do, and it was most likely the reason he was guardian. Unfortunately, he was a push-over to most and some of those "nice" students would take advantage of him.

Jimmy was pulled from his thoughts when Eleanor slung an arm around his shoulder. "Hello, Jimmy my boy." She greeted, putting a smile of both of their faces. To commemorate the moment, she snapped a picture of him and commented on his cuteness. His cheeks lit up like a fire.

"Good morning to you too, Eleanor."

The friends were soon talking lightly about their weekend, the new students, this, that, and the other. "Guess who has an extra hour in Mental Control today?" He hinted to her, hiding his disdain. He told her a lot about his struggles with mental control.

Their powers were controlled in different fashions, but she was there to help him anyway. "Hey, I was going to the cafeteria for some tea, care to join me?"

It all seemed surreal just the other day he woke up under a tree suffering from dimensional sickness and just having lost his only friend, and brother. Today Vas was ironing his shirt for his first day school in 3 years... or was it 1 year... the fabric of time and space has been ripped just for him to arrive here and only through his brother sacrifice did he make it. The painful memories still fresh on his mind along the urge to curl into the fetal position around his toilet and vomit still plagued him, but he was not about to waste the opportunity given to him by being allowed to attend this academy.

Vas knew that this place was home to people like him, people with abilities beyond their control, and he also knew that everyone here was invited, something he was not. Only by the grace and generosity of the headmaster was he allowed to live and study here, for if not here he would have no place to go.

After putting the finishing touches to his smooth crimson colored collard shirt he gently slid both arms into their respective places being carful not to cause any wrinkles as he tucked the tail into his slacks, then to finish off his attire Vas reached into his closet and removed a grey cotton sweater vest from its hanger and after sliding it over his head and arms he looked into the mirror to inspect himself. "Presentable" he whispered to himself before grabbing his satchel and journal from his desk.

Day 1: Today I start here at Eltz Academy in Moselle valley, Germany. I haven't seen earth people in 3 years and...

Vas stopped writing to contemplate his word choice and after taking ten seconds or so he scratched out the word earth with a single line.

...and I hope today is a good day but for now I'm just incredibly hungry and I wonder if they have soy milk and cereal here.
retracting his pen almost in unison with the growling of his stomach he placed his journal into his satchel and exited his room locking up after himself.

Vas made his way through the hallways of the academy passing by a large crowd of people standing outside what seemed to be the office and witnessing the interaction between a striking young woman with short brown hair and what appeared to be her good friend, a younger looking irishman. Feeling the emotions of sorrow and loneliness begin to creep up on him Vas paid no further attention to the two except to take a second look at the girl, and with that done he continued on in the direction of his nose.

after taking a few wrong turns further down the hallway he witnessed another interaction between two people, a boy and and a girl with a small dog. At this point Vas was just taking in the atmosphere of the castle and people watching but his stomach made another desperate cry for food "Alright I hear you, calm yourself" he said quietly as he continued walking now holding his stomach.

Finally Vas arrived to the cafeteria where he laid his eyes immediately on the fresh fruits, muffins, teas.... but most importantly to him the cereal and milk station. He immediately rushed over and attempting to not draw attention to himself , he prepared two large bowls of cereal and proceeded to drown them in soy milk. After placing his bowls down he went back to grab him a spoon, a blend of breakfast tea and four packets of honey. It was now time to feast and after a quick blessing of gratitude that is exactly what Vas did.
It appeared as if he was enjoying a delicacy and to him, he was. "Three years without you, never again he thought to himself as spoonful by spoonful seemed to disappear.

Halfway through the second bowl Vas looked up and noticed his table wasn't unoccupied two girls that appeared to be around his age were also at this table and had begun what seemed like a conversation just a few seats away. One seemed happy and alive and the other haunted and slightly disturbed but it was none of his business and plus he still had a bowl to finish...

Danielle's smile faded as she saw Lucy struggle to keep herself in check. Danielle sat down across from her and touched her hand softly. "you okay Lucy?" she asked. "of course she's not okay" she thought to her self. When Lucy got placed into the Kalt house the head master had warned to to make sure Lucy took her pill, so she could keep herself in check. Daniele was pretty sure she did. Danielle looked in to her eyes "anything I can get you or do you need some space?" she asked kindly. Despite Danielle's nasty temper and occasional emotional break downs she had a kind caring side that very few got to see and those that did see it where those in her house.

Lucinda took deep breaths, but freaked out a little when Danielle touched her hand. Quickly she pulled her hand away and placed it in her lap. She wasn't even in the mood to drink her tea anymore. She needed someone to rescue her. Immediately. Someone who knew the harsh effects when someone bothered her before the pill kicked in. "Anything I can get you or do you need some space?" Honestly, Lucy felt bad for rejecting her house Guardian, but she couldn't handle the human interaction right now. It was driving her up the wall. "Space."

Reaching up to sip her tea, she noticed that her hands were shaking. She gripped the cup hard and sipped her tea. There was a feeling that someone was tapping her shoulder. In attempt to her attention. "Lucinda! Play with me!! I'm all alone" her brother's voice called to her. This wasn't the time for her brother to be bothering her. Go away. Go away. Go away. she kept repeating. She shut her eyes tightly and looked back down at the tea.

Where was Kyle? Or Kian? Or Jeremiah? Even Andrei is fine. Lucinda isn't rude and she refuses to just get up and walk away, but she was going to snap. And it would start with the babbling. Babbling would get her sent back to the psych ward. She can't go back there. Not after the last time. Leaving Lucy alone to her thoughts in a white room was never a good idea. And she feels bad for hte person that suffered for it.

Jeremiah Raimin

Jeremiah thought about it for a moment. Who did he know in House Charmante. That's right he tutored their Head girl a couple times last year. He plotted out a route in his head and then once it was plotted he Smiled at the girl. "Are you ready?" She responed with the "Lead the Way." comment. So he did. They walked and each time they passed something important he would point it out and tell her about it. Other then that though he stayed quiet as he really didn't know her very well and sadly nothing he was saying was really that interesting to him.

Finally after a few minutes they ended up at the dorm area for Charmante. "Here you are. In your class schedule should be a room number with a key to your room." He looked around awkwardly not sure what to say next. "Umm the Cafeteria is fully stocked and almost always open so if your hungry head down their after you drop off your things." He smiled and started to walk away and realized he was being rude again. "Is there anything else you need my help with?" He smiled as he thought would make the situation less odd.

Daniellle nodded as the girl worked out the word "Space" she grabbed a napkin and a pen and wrote her cell phone down and slid it to her. "if you need anything and I mean anything call me and I'l be there" she said as she stood up and began walking towards the door of the cafeteria. Her mind began to wander thinking about ways she could help Lucy while at the same time blaming herself for talking to her so early in the day. In her mind she should have known to give Lucy some time before talking to her this had all been explained to her when she came into the house for the first time. Lost in her thought she didn't notice Vas and walked right into him knocking her down.

Vas had finished both bowls of cereal and was now enjoying his breakfast tea when suddenly the force of another person walking into him sent his tea spilling all over the table, he had managed to get up and avoid getting the hot liquid on himself but then he noticed a girl with died hair and captivating eyes laying on the floor apparently from the impact. "Oh no are you okay?" he said sincerely with his Russian ascent as he knelt down to help her up off the ground.

"You're not hurt are you?" Vas questioned looking into her soft hazel eyes for a response.
