Brief Written Description:
"Can't you see already?"
Elline is often seen as looking a lot younger than she actually is, due to her size and ability to look rather innocent. Don't let that fool you. She's made of muscle and could probably beat you into the floor. She's also very flexible and acrobatic, and her ability to dodge is rather remarkable. She can often be seen doing gymnastics or in the splits doing her homework.
Elline's hair is naturally wavy, and is auburn in colour. In some lights, her hair can look ginger, but don't get caught saying that, because Ellie will make it personal. She wears her hair down, most of the time, unless she's working out, which is the only time she will pull back her hair into a high ponytail. Her hair is down to her bellybutton at least, something she loves. She sometimes wears a black woolen hat, because she thinks it looks cute.
Ellie's face is just as small as her. She has quite small features, except her eyes and lips, which are large and overfull. She has a sprinkling of dark freckles across her nose, and her eyebrows arch over her eyes, framing them. Her eyelashes are dark, bringing out her eyes even more than they already stand out.
Ellie normally wears large jumpers and leggings, along with converse or ballet pumps. Occasionally she wears dresses but that's rarely. When she's practicing martial arts, she wears tight fitting tops and leggings again, but makes sure that those leggings are a lot thinner. She also owns a leotard or two, so that she is able to move comfortably when practicing gymnastics.



Digging A Little Deeper

Quirks and Faults
Ellie is very reckless and often gets herself into trouble - or danger - if she's not careful. Which is not very often.

Ellie frequently has nightmares and often runs on little to no sleep because of that.

Ellie has an extreme fear of blood. She can't bear the sight or smell of the stuff and often gets sick if she sees it, or faints. She also has a fear of intimacy, and even has trouble reading romance novels or watching romantic movies because she feels a fear of getting it wrong herself.

Likes
Blueberries || Being outside || Gymnastics || Daggers (Don't ask) || Wolves || Boys || Angels || Being high up || Climbing || Adrenaline || Video Games || Martial Arts ||

Dislikes
Nosferat || Anything intimate || Raspberries || Strong coffee || Blood || Embarrassing herself || Conflict ||

Dreams
Ellie dreams that the nosferat will one day be destroyed.

Ellie also dreams that she will have her own family to take care of and look after.

Fears
Ellie fears two things. Blood and intimacy.

Strengths
She's strong and acrobatic, and is good at defending herself, primarily with daggers or martial arts.

Weaknesses
Ellie is very small, so she can be overpowered quite easily.
Ellie also freaks out at blood, so if any is present, she will immediately get sick with fear.
Ellie also runs on little to no sleep most of the time, so she has very little energy a lot of the time, even though she hides it.



Under My Skin

Personality
{Sarcastic, Affectionate, Friendly, Bubbly, Hotheaded, Rebellious}

Ellie can be quite sweet and (fun!) loving if you can get past the sarcastic, rebellious side of herself. She likes firing off witty comments about the stupidity of others, or climbing the roof of the school. Or climbing anything, for that matter. If she's not climbing, she's practicing martial arts in the gym - something she works incredibly hard on mastering - or doing gymnastics on the grass. It doesn't matter what - handstands, flips, or splits, she could be doing it. Once you get past the acquaintance stage of her, Elline is extremely fun to be around. She'll take you on adventures through the trees (Always careful, though, she'll stick within a 5 mile radius of another Angel) and, always reckless, often climbing something. She loves to have a good time and will often work hard for an adrenaline rush - in every way but one, and that's a total secret.

Elline is also very friendly and bubbly - often she can't sit still, and will join in with a lot of conversations. She seems fearless in most aspects, unless she sees blood of course, but nobody talks about that really. She's confident and tries to help out in as many ways as she can. When the excitement is over, she'll be trying to sleep, except she knows that won't happen for long. When she has a nightmare, she can deal with it herself - but the best thing for it is hugs, even if they are uncomfortable and embarrassing.



Diving Into The Past



Image
History
Elline was born to Marlene and Andrew Matthews on the 20th December, 1997. Her and her parents lived with their guardian angels, and for the most part, their lives were peaceful. Up until the point when Elline was 6 years old. As the youngest in the family, Elline could not defend herself properly, especially not against the nosferat. So when they attacked her family's manor in England, it was all they could do to smuggle Elline and her mother out of the house. Even today, Elline has horrible nightmares that haunt her about the attack to this day, where she can't get her family's screams out of her mind. The battle was so bad, even her mother's Guardian Angel was lost to the nosferat. Elline never found out whether any of her family survived, even as nosferat.

After that, Elline and her mother lived rogue for a time. They were constantly on the move - they knew that if they weren't found they would be dead, but if they were, they'd be pitied, and Marlene was not one for pity, so much so that she stayed away from civilization to avoid it. They even snuck onto a boat across the pacific, stealing the tiniest amounts of food from the hold so that they wouldn't be discovered. Her mother taught her a little of what she knew, and they cried together, mourning their losses. Elline couldn't understand quite what her mother felt for her husband, Angel, and the loss of her children, because she was too young. But it plagued her nightmares, even 11 years later.

Several years went past, and Elline began to suspect that her mother was taking her somewhere safer, as they began to draw towards cities and towns much more than they used to. It got them more food, shelter, but it also gave Elline suspicions. She knew her mother was not well mentally - the losses had taken its toll on her mother's mind, and it worried Elline. She suspected they were nearing the place when they were again attacked by nosferat in the area.

It was not a good battle, for them. They were outnumbered 3 to 1, and they were tired and starving. Elline knew her mother would lay down her life to get Elline to safety, and perhaps, rejoin her loved ones. It was this battle that earned Elline her scars. They were captured easily, and tied up, obviously to entertain some sadist bunch of nosferat. They decided to start with Elline, where the nosferat in question cut along her arm, from the shoulder to about halfway along her arm, when the dagger buried itself in the nosferatu's back. Elline's mother was then overwhelmed, but not before she saw her daughter get bitten by the nosferatu. Elline, distraught with grief, managed to kick the nosferatu off before it could take any blood, or even turn her, and grabbed the dagger out of the dead nosferatu's back, before plunging it into the other nosferatu's eye socket. She left her mother there, knowing she was already dead and joining her loved ones as she watched. As tears flooded from her eyes, Elline stumbled onto the school grounds.

Elline works hard for her mother's sake. She knew that her mother would want her to train hard, for her brothers and sisters and her father. So that's what she does. She tries to train herself to kill nosferat - she feels it was what she was born to do, and why her parents sacrificed themselves. It might be a silly thought, but it's Elline's mind - and she will try for them.





OOC
How often do you get online?:
I should be on every day, but because I live in England, timezones will be different, so a post should be waiting in the morning. Also, from the 1st of August to the 8th of August I will be in France - so expect shorter posts with more errors as my phone cannot cope with much more. Hope this is okay.
How often can I expect you to be able to post?:
At least once a day, and depending on who is on and if I get replies, more than once.
Password:
As I said in my reserve, I say 'dude' and 'like what' a lot, normally in response to video games. And you should never say goodbye at a funeral, for you may again see them someday.

Also, I think it might be a bad idea if you say 'My bad', I mean, that's not gonna go down well. :l

It was seven in the morning, fifteen minutes until breakfast and an hour till morning classes started. As Roza brushed out and curled her hair, she heard her dorm-mates opening and closing their doors as they all left to get a good table and early seating. She knew some of her friends might already be there, as some of them rose from their dorms early to exercise in the school's gymnasium, but she didn't like to rush herself. In Russia, she always had infinite amounts of time to get herself ready, but Americans were always in a hurry so things moved much faster here. At first, she had always missed breakfast and first period just getting herself ready in the morning, but now she was accustomed to the fast paced life.

Sighing in happiness, she dabbed on some mascara before grabbing her bookbag and hoisting it over her shoulder. She wore a brightly colored romper covered with a black blazer, and black greek-styled sandals on her feet. Her lips were covered in cherry lip-gloss, which she bought after learning it was an American favorite, and her skin was naturally clear and olive-toned. Many of the other angels and even some of the humans watched her as she walked out of the dorm towards the mess hall, but she could tell from their auras that the only thing they wanted from her was a good time in bed.

Entering the mess hall, Roza spotted her friends sitting at a circular table in the corner and she walked over to them. As she neared the table, she smiled at Winston and said, "Hey, good-looking, how does it go?" She had learned this line from him last week, and she enjoyed using it. While it sounded a little strange with her accent, she knew he got the point. She sat down next to him and greeted her other friends.

"Who is excited for 5th period test?" Roza asked as she snatched an apple from Winston's tray, taking a bite out of it with a cheesy smile in his direction.

Sachael had awoken early to go to the gymnasium to exercise. It was 5am when he arrived there, knowing full well that no one would be there that early. He walked over to the weights and began his exercise for the day. When he finally finished with his leg workouts, he looked up at the clock on the wall. 6:20am. "Better start getting ready for breakfast.." he sighed to himself as he stood, more students now in the gym. He kept his head down as he walked out of the double doors, sweat dripping from his forehead and down his temples. When he got back to his dorm room, he opened the door quietly, ignoring anyone that might have been in the hallway and shut the door behind him softly after entering. He sighed again and set his gym bag on his bed. He stripped down and headed into the bathroom for a shower. The cool water felt good against his skin, but he made sure not to take too long. He stepped out onto the bath mat, grabbing a towel from the rack and dried off. He stepped over to the mirror and looked at himself in it, checking his scruff to make sure it wasn't overgrowing. He roughed up his hair a bit to create a slightly messy, bedhead-like effect. He dressed himself and looked at the time again. 6:50am. He decided to go to the mess hall early so that he could grab a table for himself and his few friends.

On his way down to the mess hall, he passed several other angels that gave him weird looks as usual and also passed some of the humans. He stared down at the ground, trying to avoid all eye contact. Since he'd decided not to graduate and stay behind at Dobrev, he'd started to get stared at more and more. When he finally arrived, he quickly grabbed himself a tray and got cereal and a peach from the staff there. He then turned and walked toward a circular table that had enough seats for himself and his friends. Though he never really spoke much to the group, he considered them to be friends regardless. He sat down and waited for the others to arrive.

As they arrived and took their seats with their food, he stared down at his bowl of cereal, playing with it and not really eating it. He hadn't taken a bite yet and didn't particularly want to, so he picked up his peach instead and began to eat that. Just then he saw Roza some in. "Hey, good-looking, how does it go?" she said to Winston. Sachael laughed inwardly, making sure not to show his amusement outwardly as she might take it the wrong way. Winston was always teaching her new "American phrases," and she sure did love using them. "Who is excited for 5th period test? she asked, smiling at Winston as she snatched the apple from his tray. I don't know if I'd use the word excited.. Sachael thought to himself, still not speaking outright to the others. He continued eating his peach and played with his cereal a bit more, hoping someone else would break the awkward silence over the group so that he wouldn't have to.

Cocking her head to the side Aneal smiled gently, "Very gold?" a soft laugh fluttered out of her mouth as she answered Roza's unasked question. "Yeah, its a very unique color that comes with the territory. Yours is as well so you know." Aneal continued, gracefully sitting down beside Sachael. Cocking her head at him, she set on observing his aura, a delicate frown gracing her face before she turned her attention back to Roza. Though Aneal had seen the golden auras in the past she had never been able to speak to them, mostly because they were just visiting the campus. "What all can you do with it so far?" Aneal was being careful with what she said, not knowing how much Winston and Sahael knew about Roza's gift, because she didnt want to be the one to out Roza's special gift to her friends if she didnt want them to know. When she allowed people to know about hers she had been treated as a novelty, like a toy brought out to show off and to use. Aneal had fallen into a deep a dark hole that took all of her strength to climb out of. Cocking her head she waited patently for the others to say something, though her eyes were focused on Roza.

Winston was leaning forward, his eyes trained on Aneal. His face lost of its normal humor, pulling Roza close to him he kept his arm around her waist before turning to Sachael. "I heard Ellie was sick, some sort of cold I guess." he shrugged, still half paying attention to the girls conversation. He knew he came off cold but compared to Roza or Sachael, he wasnt that close to Ellie, she was a friend yes, but he was closer to Sachael in a way only guys can be and Roza, he was pretty much his other half. They had alot of the same personality traits. Turning to Aneal and Roza, his eyes narrowed as he watched the Guardian sit gracfully next to his shy friend. He didnt like when his friends were uncomfortable and he had a feeling his already quite friend wouldnt talk at all while she sat at the table.

Elline still felt sick to her stomach from the sight of her blood from the previous evening. Heck, she still felt sick now, just thinking about it.

She awoke in the hospital wing at dawn, once again. Sunlight streamed through the window onto the bed, and she groaned slightly, huddling into a ball. She'd had the nightmare again. She yawned, and stifled the yawn with her hand, before sliding her bare feet over the side until they rested on the cold floor. She shivered slightly. She wanted to get outside, meet with her friends, perhaps.

At the end of the bed, a set of her clothes was at the end of the bed. It was a simple jumper and leggings, along with a pair of converse. She gratefully slipped them on, grateful to not have to wear the horrid scratchy hospital gown anymore. The only reminder of her slip-up the previous evening was the white bandage wrapped carefully around her left hand. She flexed her fingers slightly, getting the feeling for the bandage on her hand. She still felt pretty embarrassed with herself - she had managed to cut her hand while practicing with her Mom's dagger, the one that killed the Nosferatu in the woods. It had bled, and made her pass out. No real biggie. It was common with Elline.

What Ellie really wanted to do, though, was get up onto the roof of the school. But it was dawn, and the sun was coming up fast. She checked the time. 6:30. She'd slept longer than she had expected. Only problem with that was, she had to watch her mother dying over and over again, as if the record was on repeat. She pressed her hands to her forehead, sitting on the bed for a moment, before she decided that she'd watch the sun rise on the roof. She had half an hour. What harm would it do, really?

A few moments later, Elline was up on the roof, watching the sun rise over the trees. She felt peaceful, and the height put her mind on something other than nightmares and blood. She sat there for a while, until she heard people moving in the dorms below. Hastily, she clambered down, realizing she'd been up there a little longer than she had expected to be. Her hand throbbed beneath the bandage, almost making her fall from the climb down several times. She made it down safely after a few minutes, and she hurried around to the mess hall. She was hungry, despite getting nauseous last night, and so she decided she'd get a bite to eat before breakfast.

She hurried to the mess hall, to catch up with her friends. She grabbed a piece of bread as she hurried past a basket full of bread, and picked at it as she passed. As she reached her friends, she practically leaped into her seat, but with much less enthusiasm than normal. She still felt sick, even if she felt better in general.

"Just for your information, Win, it'll take more than a cold to put me out of action. Jeez, you act like a cold's a serious illness or something." She shot him a cheeky grin to show she was joking, before picking apart large chunks of bread, before she flexed her wrist. Her hand still throbbed slightly, reminding her of last night once more. She winced for a second, before replacing it with a smile. She hated looking weak when she already knew that she didn't look exactly tough in itself. She nudged Sachael, who she had sat next to, offering a slight smile. "You alright today, Sach?" She muttered so he could hear her, but only just. With that, she bit into the bread again, her plan effectively calming her stomach.

She didn't notice the other two girls until much later. She only really picked up on their presence when they started discussing gold auras. Confused, she looked up, and noticed a graduated Angel along with Roza, similar to her own age. She smiled up at them from her seat, before resting her head on her arms. The sleep-deprivation was beginning to show, whether she liked it or not. She sighed through her nose, before pulling herself up. She picked at the bread, no longer eating it. "Sooo..." She began slowly. "You two having fun discussing powers over there?" She smiled again before pressing her hands to her forehead again, trying not to fall asleep, which was quite normal for Ellie.

Sachael was still focused on his cereal when he saw a familiar pair of Converse leaping into the seat next to him, on the side Aneal wasn't on. "Just for your information, Win, it'll take more than a cold to put me out of action. Jeez, you act like a cold's a serious illness or something." Suddenly, Elline was nudging Sachael. "You alright today, Sach?" she asked softly so that even he could barely hear her before taking another bite of her bread. Sachael looked up at her, looking her in the eyes for a brief second, before turning his gaze back to his cereal. He hoped she'd understand how he felt without him having to say anything, especially with Aneal there. Why hasn't the bell rung yet? I just want to get out of here.. Sachael thought inwardly, hoping to dear god that the bell would ring within the next minute or so.

Without moving his head, Sachael focused his eyes on Elline's Converse. They were familiar to him and comforting in a way, since Elline was probably the closest female friend that he had, even though they weren't particularly very close. Sachael continued to stare at Elline's shoes, lost in his thoughts. He'd known Ellin for a little while now, and to him, she was the most beautiful girl in the school. She had a fire in her that he couldn't explain, but he was inexplicably drawn to its warmth and glow.

Winston had zoned out of the powers conversation between the two Spirit Angels. Instead, he'd focused on Ellie's little quip at him, which he rolled him eyes at and poked at his mountain of eggs and bacon, before chewing on the end of the fork. It took him a few minutes, before he realized what he was doing, before eating the eggs with his fork, even though the mouthfuls were slightly too big to be called so. He squeezed his hand on Roza's hip. She always made him feel better. Her russian accent was almost soothing. Almost.

He focused on her previous conversation, trying to remember her words. He grinned when he remembered her comment about dreams, and decided to comment back with a flirtatious little; "Oh? So who's dreams did you visit last night, sexy lady?" Although it wasn't too loud like he'd expected it to be. He decided not to react to that and pretended that was how it was supposed to be. He tried not to focus on the other Angel girl, because even though he may flirt with her in the future, she looked like she could bite his head off if he did it wrong - and from the reactions of the other Seniors from the table one over, she had a reputation that said that she would and could. Winston poked his fork in his mouth and chewed it again. The metal against his teeth was definitely not good for them, but definitely felt good.

After a few minutes, he remembered Roza's question about the 5th period test. Then he realized he had no idea what 5th period even was, or if he'd even studied for it. Hah. More than likely not. "Uhh, what's fifth period again?" He muttered, mostly to Roza or Sach, although Ellie was now sat in the middle of the only other guy in the group. She wasn't his most favorite person in the world - Roza took that spot, and then Sach, but she wasn't too far behind. He considered her a friend, but really wished he could ask his brooding friend the question about what test he was supposed to have studied for that evening instead of revising flirts to use.

(Sorry about this, but I guess it has to be done :c I really hope this is okay!)

Sachael smiled to himself when Winston asked what fifth period was. Typical Winston, always either not paying attention or simply not caring. Sachael knew that Winston probably hadn't studied for the test and that that was why he was slightly concerned, but Sachael knew Winston better than that. Winston was smart and didn't particularly need to study much, and Sachael knew that. He knew that better than anyone, except maybe Roza. Sachael looked at the Russian girl, noticing Winston's slightly tighter grasp on her waist. He sighed inwardly, wishing he could be that close with someone. This thought cause Sachael to turn to look at Ellie out of the corner of his eye.

Ellie was very beautiful, both in looks and personality. Sachael was drawn to her, even though it was still difficult for him to talk to her too much. Sachael leaned in toward Winston. "Isn't fifth period History? Or is it English?" He paused for a moment. "Honestly, I didn't study for it, so I wouldn't worry too much.. If you didn't study, and we both fail, at least we failed together.." Sachael smiled softly before turning back to his cereal mush.

Aneal smiled softly at the young spirit user, though she was only a year younger. Aneal had learned much about her gift over the years, and she had seen a few on her rounds as a Guardian Angel before returning to campus, but Roza was the first one she was able to have an honest conversation with. "Little things," she said, her accent making her consonants crisp. "Auras, as you found, um, I can...what's the word...heal? I can heal certain ailments or injuries. And, also, the dreams," Roza seemed to move more towards inside her self, almost subconsciously moving her body closer to Winston's. Aneal noticed their relationship, but could tell from their auras that there was nothing official there yet. Never the less, the two cared about each other a great deal. That was obvious. "If I focus on people, at night, I sometimes can...talk to them. Back in Russia, this happened many times, but no person every mentioned it, so I thought I had made dream up, but it just...felt...real. Do you know?" The way Roza looked at her, as if she was the only person who held all of the answers, was almost disconcerting. Aneal knew she was a natural born leader, but having a student look towards you with such wonder and hope that you might be as strange as her, well, kind of nerve-racking. While she noticed that Sachael, as quiet as ever, was only focusing menially on the conversation, Winston seemed to know everything that Roza was talking about. She knew that she should still be careful with her word choice, but she felt better knowing that Roza had someone to talk to.

"Yes, I do know what you are referring to," Aneal said carefully. "I can help you if you want. After school, I mean." Aneal offered, with a brief glance at Winston and then at Sachael, who seemed to be conversing comfortably with another addition to the teens' table. This made Aneal feel much better about Sachael's mental state, noticing that his aura perked up substantially around her. With a nod at the two boys and meaningful look at Roza, Aneal stood and went off to find her fellow campus Guardians and prepare for the humans morning martial-arts classes.

ImageImage


Roza blinked briefly at Aneal, surprised that this Angel knew exactly what she had been experiencing. Keeping well aware of the mental safety she felt as her aura connected with Winston's. Usually she wasn't this forthcoming with the flirting and such, but Roza always turned to Winston when something was bothering her, and this new Guardian Angel was certainly something that should have bothered her. Roza nodded, almost imperceptibly. She would find Aneal later, after school was let out. This was something that needed further exploration by Roza's curious mind. She spaced out of the boys and Ellie's conversation for a small portion, instead thinking about Aneal and the future opportunities this might allow her. Were there any other Spirit abilities that Roza didn't know about? Would Aneal be able to teach her how to control things like her dream-visits and odd points of mental instability? Roza was mulling this over in her mind just as Winston startled her into the conversation, answering her question about the test she had forgotten since Aneal's visit.

"5th period...English and literacy. I take it by your look that you did not study?" Roza joked. Glancing at Ellie, she winked. Ellie was much like a younger sister to Roza, even though it was sometimes she who helped Roza with the ups and downs of the English language. Winston helped plenty as well, but there was only so far sarcastic and flirty quips could go.

Ellie noticed Roza's look of surprise - it was quite obviously shocked that the other angel had also experienced what she was. Ellie felt quite sorry for her - she had no idea what developing powers would be like. She pinched a bit of soft bread between her fingers and molded it into a ball, no longer hungry. She still had no appetite from earlier - and her hand reminded her of it. She sniffed a little, pressing her fingers into her temples. She was trying desperately not to fall asleep - a consequence of constant nightmares. She shook her red hair a little and sniffed, catching a glance at Winston squeezing Roza's waist a little tighter. She avoided the scene and shifted her gaze to Sach. She wished she could cheer him up a lot more than she knew she could - although the two were close, she knew she could never share the same bond as he did with Winston, which, for some reason, made her slightly jealous. However, she did have Roza, and she knew that Roza would help put her mind at ease. Ellie trusted Roza with her life. She was like the big sister she used to have, one that she couldn't quite remember anymore, that had laid down her life to rescue her.

Ellie bit back tears. She didn't want to remember her family, not now. She faked a sneeze, and used the time to wipe away tears that had spiked at the corners of her eyes, and then her nose. She was getting pretty good at concealing her thoughts and feelings - not that she could hide them from Roza or this new angel - what was her name? Aneal? Yeah.

Ellie looked up to catch Roza's wink, and she grinned back, before watching as Aneal left. She hadn't exactly studied for the test either, but she was pretty confident anyway. She could probably revise quickly with Sach or Roza before fifth period anyway. And she needed to talk to Roza, too. She'd had an idea while she was in the hospital wing which she wished to share, but she thought she would share it when they were alone. It was about her powers, and considering how shaky she was on the subject, she decided it would be fairer that if she were to ask a question at all, it would be alone.

Ellie glanced over at Sach once again, before directing her gaze to his cereal. It was a mush, and she didn't think it would be that appealing to anyone. She decided she would ask the group something. "Does anyone wanna come up on the roof?" It was nice up on the roof - at least to her - and they still had a few minutes before class, at least, and they could probably kill it up on the roof.

"Does anyone wanna come up on the roof?" Ellie asked, probably hoping to kill a little time before class as usual. Sachael knew how much she liked being up there, so he nodded in agreement, also wanting to kill some time and to get away from all the people in the mess hall for a while. He stood, taking his disgusting cereal to the trash and tossing it. He then looked to Ellie as if to say "let's go to the roof," hoping that she'd follow. Sachael loved Ellie very dearly, but being as quiet as he was, he could never really tell her something like that.

He hoped Winston and Roza would come to, as Sachael didn't feel entirely comfortable being up on the roof alone with Ellie, even if he did secretly wish it could be so. Though Sachael knew Ellie didn't feel that way about him. Sachael knew that he was slightly in over his head with her, but he couldn't help himself. She's beautiful and fun, but Sachael couldn't imagine that she'd have feelings for him beyond being a friend.

Roza pushed her food tray away, suddenly not very hungry. Meeting another Spirit user excited her, yes. But at the same time, it deeply frightened her. Sure, she wasn't the mental freak she thought she was, but the way Aneal was making it sound, there was more to her powers. Much more. She was already scared of them enough as at it was, why did there have to be more?

Her head perked up a bit as Ellie mentioned the roof and she smiled, ridding her heart of all her worries. Looking at Ellie's aura, she could see happiness and exhaustion, but also golden where her aura touched Sach's. His looked the same, the sadness depleting before her very eyes the longer he was around her. Looking at Winston but not choosing to bring his aura into it, she smiled. "I will go if you will," she said. There was only five minutes till the first class, so she knew that by agreeing to this they would all probably miss it, but she never liked history anyway.

Winston was still chewing on his fork when Ellie suggested the rooftop visit. He shrugged, before finishing off his mountain of food with a few quick forkfuls. He nodded his approval of the plan, not wanting to agree with a full mouth. He swallowed and released Roza's waist. he placed his fork on his plate, and immediately revealed a pack of chewing gum in his pocket, before popping two into his mouth. He didn't care that it was breakfast - it was chewing gum, and chewing was his thing. He stuck his hands in his leather jacket and shrugged, waiting for Ellie to lead the way.



Image

Ellie was glad that the others wanted to come up onto the roof with her. It made her happy to share her little place with the rest of the group, and she enjoyed the fact that she could take them there. She stood up gracefully, (Careful not to stand up too fast - she didn't want to faint again that day) and headed out of the mess hall, occasionally glancing back to make sure she could see the others. She noticed Winston had his hands in his jacket, and giggled slightly. He looked rebellious, and somebody that she knew Winston was not. She headed outside and headed to the easiest place to get up onto the roof, before climbing the wall with relative ease. She made sure to point out all of the foot and handholds to the others so that they could get up, too, before she sat up there with her legs dangling over the edge, keeping an eye on her friends. She could see out over the trees, and once again admired the view.

Winston came up first, and Ellie pointed out all the hand holds to him. At one point he almost slipped, and Ellie had to hurriedly climb down and give him a hand, before showing him the way up the wall, before finally pulling him up and over the gutter at the top of the roof. He sat away from the edge, while Ellie sat in her normal place at the edge of the roof, grinning down to the rest of them. "You all okay?" She asked them, shouting down from the roof. "We'll stay for a few minutes and then we can go to class, I guess." She smiled again, although just slightly. Her hand throbbed a little, from the exertion. She didn't mind it, though, she knew how to ignore it. She sat on the roof and pointed the hand holds out once again.

Sachael watched each of them climb up onto the roof, deciding to be the last one to go up in case someone lost their grip and started to fall. When everyone was up, he climbed up himself and plopped himself down between Winston and Ellie. Sachael noticed that Ellie smelled rather sweet, but he couldn't quite put his finger on what the scent was. He put his hands down behind him and leaned back on his arms a bit, relaxing. Do we have to go to class? Sachael wondered to himself, realizing that their first class was history and that he very much disliked the subject. Not only was he terrible at it, his own history haunted him enough. He didn't need to know all of the other bad things that'd happened in the world as well; he had his own demons to fight.

He shifted his gaze toward Ellie, being careful to only move his eyes and not his head. He poured over her, looking at every feature, from her long, auburn hair to her freckles that looked like they'd been sprinkled across her nose very gently. He realized he'd been staring at her from the corner of his eyes for what seemed like forever, so he averted his gaze in attempt to make sure no one had seen what he was doing. He couldn't help himself with Ellie, though. "Do we have to go to class....?" Sachael said very quietly under his breath so that his words were inaudible to Roza, but barely audible to Winston and Ellie.

Roza looked up at the sun contentedly as she sat next to Winston. She noticed Sachael sitting between the two of them instead of beside her which would have been the easiest positioning, but she didn't say anything. She had long grown accustomed to Sach's shyness, and by now it was almost second nature for her to be the odd man out in his mind. She looked at his aura again and was pleased to find his mood had evened out quite a bit since being in Ellie's presence.

"It is interesting being up here, no? Four of us, watching sun rise," she said. In any other setting, her accent would have been rough and cutting, but she knew her friends were used to it and that Winston in particular didn't seem to mind. She often wished her words sounded nicer like the Americans, but she knew it was a mark of her heritage, and she didn't want to forget it.

Sachael mumbled something, but it wasn't for her ears. Again, she didn't mind, knowing that it wasn't personal. Waiting for one of them to respond, she laughed suddenly, pushing Winston a little and running to the edge of the roof. Below her, there was a solid balcony leading to student dorms and the rec rooms. She turned her head and smiled teasingly. "Who is going to catch me if I jump?"

Corinne wasn't surprised when Voodoo hissed at her. Instead, once her back had turned, Corinne smirked a little, but decided not to bother her further. She also knew they were going to hunt, and that, to her disappointment, Voodoo would use her Compulsion. She wished that Voodoo would let her have a little more fun, but also didn't. She also wanted to forget about the whole Leader thing. She was annoyed and angry that it had happened. Swinging her teddy bear as she walked, Corinne soon stopped humming and skipping and instead went into 'hunting mode'.

She had just caught up to Voodoo as she stepped out and waited in the shadows, before hugging the tattered teddy and smoothing her dress a little. Her red hair caught the wind slightly, and Corinne stepped out on cue, assuming her position behind 'her mother', trying to look innocent as possible. She could tell that most of the men in the clearing were focused on Voodoo, but she could see some of the female humans were totally smitted with her. She bit the inside of her lip to hide a smile. Humans were all such idiots.

Corinne walked forward to the fire and sat down as if she wasn't cautious of it at all. She knew that fire would be one of the only things that could kill her, but Corinne pretended that it wasn't threatening, it was homely and warm. She hugged her knees, and held the teddy bear with one hand. Soon enough, Voodoo used her Compulsion, and they all lay down. Corinne wished that they could at least run, but didn't complain. She walked over to the first human, a woman, and knelt down beside her. "Just go to sleep, now, this won't take long." She whispered, hushed, as she slid her fingers over the woman's eyelids to close them, before she leaned down and sunk her teeth in.

Winston grinned at Roza as she sat next to him. He was surprised that Sach had sat in between himself and Elline instead of Roza, but didn't question him about it. It was his choice, and if he felt comfortable with it, Win was also cool with it. He grinned at them all, looking out across the rooftops. The sun was coming up over the horizon, something Winston hadn't seen in a long time. Roza then said, in her amazing Russian accent: "It is interesting being up here, no? Four of us, watching sun rise,", and Winston nodded his agreement, too stunned by the scene to speak properly. He had to admit, when the sun hit here skin and hair, she looked radiant, and Winston couldn't help but think she was beautiful.

Winston then caught the tail end of Sachael's question. "...Have to go to class?" Winston looked up at his best friend, and shook his head. "Nah... I guess we don't have to. It's only History." Winston didn't really want to go to class anyway. It was much more beautiful up here. Suddenly, Roza hit him lightly on the arm, and ran away to the end of the roof, laughing like a maniac. Confused and frowning, Winston got up and followed her, telling Ellie and Sach that he'll; "Be right back." He hurried after her until he heard her tease; "Who is going to catch me if I jump?" Confused, but hearing that she was teasing, Winston decided to play along. "No, my beautiful Roza! I will catch you if you fall!" He did it in a very 'Shakespearian' style, as if he was in a play, speaking slowly and with a posh English accent. He walked forward slowly and placed his hands on her hips, burying his face in her hair and muttering; "Come on, Roza, it's a lovely balcony down there but I'd really rather you didn't."



Image

Ellie smiled softly when she heard Sach ask her about having to go to class. She had let Roza know she loved it here with a smile and a nod earlier, and was watching the sun rise with the bestest people in the world, in Elline's opinion. Her stomach fluttered nervously when she thought about the fact that Sach was sat next to her, and smiled to herself, giddy. "No... I don't suppose we have to go." She agreed, before leaning back, placing her hands behind her. As she did so, however, her hand brushed Sach's lightly, and she felt a light jolt of energy go through her. She bit her lip and stammered a quick apology, placing her hands behind her again and leaning back.

Winston and Roza soon left, going to the other end of the roof, and Elline couldn't help but feel the butterflies twist and turn her stomach, without any reason why. She didn't understand herself, she didn't understand why she felt like this when she was around Sach. She definitely needed to ask Roza what on earth was going on.

Ellie wanted to say something, anything, but couldn't. She was completely tongue-tied, and had absolutely no idea what to say. So she said the first thing to come into her head. "You know, you're my favourite person." She looked up, blushing slightly. "Well, it's true." She laughed at herself slightly, in embarrassment. She hoped he wouldn't mind.

Sachael watched as Roza skipped to the edge of the roof, playfully threatening to jump off of it. Then Winston grabbed her from behind, stopping her. Sachael smiled, glad that his friends got along so well and had so much chemistry together. Just then, Sachael felt Ellie's hand brush his and he jumped, his hand flying to his chest in surprise. He looked at her, blushing, and she got out an awkward, quick apology before readjusting herself. He looked away, trying to hide his smile.

"You know, you're my favourite person," she said, looking up at him and blushing. He looked back down at her and smiled. "Well, it's true." She laughed slightly. He began to blush and felt the urge to lean into her and kiss her but resisted. Instead he turned his gaze back to the sunrise and cleared his throat awkwardly. He looked down at his lap, still blushing, but he hoped that Ellie didn't notice. He looked back at her once more. "You're mine." He smiled slightly, blushing even more now. He bit the inside of his lip and looked away from her and up toward the sky, completely averting his eyes.

Roza laughed at Winston's Shakespearean remark and held her arms out, closing her eyes and picturing her with her angel wings, flying through the skies. Opening one eye when she felt Winston's hands on her hips, she laughed again and tilted her head to the side, pressing it against Winston's. "Come on, Roza, it's a lovely balcony down there but I'd really rather you didn't," he said. She brought her arms down and covered his hands with her own.

"No worries, good-looking," she said lightly, repeating another American phrase he had taught her. "You cannot get rid of me that easily!" She turned her head to the side, and smiled as she saw Ellie and Sachael interacting. "They are adorable together, no? Maybe you should "get on that" as you Americans say, because Sachael does not listen to my words." Ellie was like a little sister to her, so she wanted her to be happy. She could tell by watching the two of their aura's together that they would be relatively perfect for each other.

Seeing their auras made her think of Aneal, and the training session she was to have with the Guardian Angel this afternoon. Was there more she could do with her powers? If so, did she even want to? Thinking about this, she bit her lip nervously and watched her fellow classmates move on to 1st period.

Winston laughed out loud into Roza's neck. He hadn't lifted his face at all, as he was just content with breathing in her scent. She smelled wonderful, but couldn't put a finger on the scent itself. "Well, good. I don't plan on getting rid of you anyway, sexy lady." He laughed again, but he was deadly serious.

He felt Roza move slightly, and Winston looked up too, following her gaze. His eyes landed on the auburn girl and his best friend together, interacting. Roza was right - they suited each other. However, Winston wasn't sure that Sach would ever make a move on his own. He was just too shy for that, and Ellie was much too outgoing. He hoped that Sach would prove him wrong. "Even if he does listen to me, I doubt that he would actually act." Winston muttered, chewing the inside of his cheek. "Why? What do you see?" He asked her, curious. He knew that she could see auras, and roughly what they meant, but he needed clarity again.

He watched Roza carefully, realizing that she was watching her fellow classmates go to class. "Roza? Do you want to go to class?" He asked softly.



Image

Elline almost leaped up and danced when Sach told her that she was his favourite person. She couldn't even understand why. Her emotions were all a mess, her stomach full of butterflies. She liked the feeling, too... She just hoped she wasn't going crazy or something. Maybe it was normal. Roza would know the answer.

Ellie turned her gaze to the sunrise, along with Sach. It cast beautiful golden rays across the tops of the trees, creating an ethereal feel to the world, which reminded Ellie of the boy she sat next to. She sneaked a glance at him through her eyelashes. He was beautiful in so many amazing ways. Ellie wished she had the power to cheer him up permanently. She looked back across the trees again, breathing slower than normal. It was so relaxing and beautiful... So peaceful, so perfect.

Sachael stared at the girl beside him, thinking about her longingly. He could smell the sweetness of her skin and her hair. Her hair. He longed to run his fingers through it, longed to clasp it to her neck, strands tangled about his fingers as he kissed her. These wishful thoughts ran about in his mind, though Sachael was unsure if they'd even become a reality. He took a deep breath through his nose, watching as Ellie's gaze turned away from him. He got his face close to hers, but not close enough to where she'd be able to tell. "Ellie.." he whispered. Before she could turn to face him, he put his fingertips on her cheek and turned her head toward him. He stared into her eyes for a brief moment, getting lost in them, and without a second thought, he jumped off the roof..so to speak. He kissed her gently, his lips firm but soft on hers.

This close, Sachael could smell Ellie's scent even stronger and it was mesmerizing. His hand moved to her neck, his fingers tangling in her hair as he pulled her further into the kiss. Maybe he was moving too fast. He didn't really know. He wanted to stop himself, but he couldn't. Being this close to someone he cared so deeply for sent butterflies not only through his stomach but his entire body. Chills ran up his spine as he kissed her. He pulled away, blushing immensely and turned his head from her, clearing his throat awkwardly. He didn't know what to say, nor what to do at this point.

Roza listened to Winston mumble and she smiled. At least they could agree on one thing, Sachael was much too shy to act on any of his feelings for Ellie. "Why? What do you see?" Winston asked and Roza cocked her head, analyzing the auras.

"It is strange...their auras seem to respond rather well to each other. Almost as if they were meant to be connected," she says thoughtfully. She hadn't yet mastered the art of determining what the colors meant, but she knew enough to tell that when two auras reached out to caress each other, it generally meant something.

She heard the bell ring and silently laughed when Winston asked if she wanted to go to class. "No, I do not have any intention of attending History today. I was just thinking about Aneal--that Guardian Angel? I do not know if it was a good idea to agree to those extra training sessions," she says. Again, she bites her lip, but quickly stops when she feels a spark of energy from Sachael behind her. She gasps quietly as she sees Sachael kiss Ellie gently, then deepen it confidently. She giggles and hides her eyes, not wanted to infringe on their moment. "I guess we were both wrong..."

Ellie was just looking out over the trees, when she heard a slight whisper from the boy beside her. Before she could turn, however, she felt his fingers on her skin, and almost jumped out of her own. Jolts of energy rocketed through her and the knots in her stomach intensified as he moved in closer and closer and their lips met.

Ellie was surprised that he had done so, but didn't mind it at all. In fact, it felt perfect, like everything was clicking into place. She closed her eyes and she placed one hand on his shoulder and one on his arm that had sneaked up around her neck. She could feel his fingers in her hair, she could smell the sweet scent that lingered around him, and she thought: This is what perfection was supposed to feel like.

Eventually, after what didn't even seem like enough to Ellie, Sach pulled away, much to Ellie's disappointment. The butterflies returned, except they brought with them an energy that kept Ellie buzzing. She wanted to do it again. Sach calling her name brought her to her attention once again, and she breathed again, having forgotten to for a few moments. "Sach...When can we do that again?" She asked him quietly.



Image

Winston listened closely to Roza as she described their auras. Winston was incredibly interested in Roza's powers, for some reason, but he thought they were incredibly cool to have. Winston always wished he could see what Roza saw, as he felt maybe he could help support her a little more, and maybe even his other friends. He sighed a little, before looking up from Roza's shoulder, and out across the trees.

Winston listened carefully to Roza's worries and woes, and smiled. "Roza, I think it's a brilliant idea to go. She could teach you a lot about yourself and what you can do." He tried to reassure her, not sure if his words were what she needed.

Roza then gasped and turned, and curious, Winston did the same. He averted his eyes quickly when he realized his best friend had kissed his crush. He'd have to congratulate him later. It was quite a feat for his quiet best friend, and Winston was proud of him for it. He had been worried about Sach for a little while now, about how sad he always seemed, but he was glad that he and Ellie were sharing an intimate moment. Perhaps it would help his best friend.

"Mmm... Good on you, Sach." Winston muttered so only Roza could hear. He didn't want to interrupt their moment together.

"Sach...When can we do that again?" the girl beside him said quietly. He turned to face her once more, staring into her eyes, getting lost in them once again. He brushed a few strands of auburn hair out of her face and tucked them behind her ear. Then, he leaned in again and kissed her softly on the lips. A short kiss, but one that felt magical all the same. "You have no idea how long I've been waiting to do that.." He gave her an awkward side smile that was accompanied by a slight chuckle.

Sachael covered his mouth with the back of his wrist and burst into laughter, tears forming at the outer corners of his eyes. "I'm sorry, Ells. I don't know why I'm laughing.. I guess because I've never really ever just gone for anything before.. You brought it out of me though.." As his laughter subsided, he stared at Ellie, his fingers finding the hair behind her neck again.

Roza laughed quietly as Winston mumbled against her hair. She leaned forward, letting her toes dangle off the roof while not giving herself too much leverage that she would fall forward. "It is interesting, no? Watching our shy friend put his heart out there. It makes you want to try, does it not? Maybe there is a human down there calling your name, good looking," Roza laughed.

Ellie melted just a little bit in Sach's arms when he fulfilled her wish of kissing again. She was practically glowing with happiness - her cheeks were bright pink, her eyes were sparkling. She didn't need Roza's help to figure out how she felt anymore. She knew exactly what her diagnosis would be. And she felt better than she could ever remember.

"Why are you apologizing? It's good to hear you laugh and, well, be happy." She smiled at him, shrugging slightly. She liked the feel of his fingers on her neck, and she draped her arms behind his neck, tracing patterns on his back with her fingertips. "I'm glad to see you happy." She confirmed, before adjusting herself so that her head was on his shoulder.

She felt safe in his arms, and she could feel the exhaustion tugging at her eyelids. Elline didn't want to fall asleep, but she found herself slipping into a more and more drowsy state. She wouldn't sleep for more than 5 minutes, she never could when napping, and so found herself drifting off.

For once, Elline didn't have a nightmare, for the first time in 11 years.

Winston raised an eyebrow, before stepping forwards and sitting beside Roza, his knees up by his chest. "Well, Miss Belikova, I must agree with the interesting part, and the proud part. I must have taught him some things." He joked to himself, not really expecting a laugh, but it was intended as banter anyhow. "But I don't agree with the human part, sexy lady." He sneaked a glance at her quickly, before looking back down at his lap, and placing his arm around the back of her, but so it still rested on the roof, although it was still close enough to touch.
