Image





Age: 16
Gender: Female
Element/Type of Magic: Shadow: Spirit. Allows user abilities related to ghosts and seeing ghosts. Aberdeen for now can only use her powers to see ghosts and turn invisible for only ten minutes. However, as she develops her abilities she will be able to perform higher magic such as intangibility, aura vision, astral projection, and spirit channeling, her greatest wish. However, if she tries to perform new abilities or remain invisible for more than ten minutes, she will faint from exhaustion and have to sleep for hours in order to recover.
Weapon: fighting knife
Height: 5'0
Weight:105 lbs

Appearance: Aberdeen has long indigo black hair that extends all the way up to her waist line. She has piercing eyes that are dark violet and express emptiness or seriousness. Her light complexion contrasts the dark Lolita dresses with intricate laces, ribbons, and designs she wears. She may also choose to wear Japanese school girl outfits and hoodies, though she prefers they be a dark blue, violet, silver, grey or black. Her favorite footwear is a pair of medium long black boots with crisscrossing laces on the front. Abderdeen never leaves without putting on her favorite pair of boots.




Personality: Aberdeen is not one to say a lot of words. She would rather be in the background observing other people’s action and watching from a distance. If someone were to try and speak to her, depending on the situation she will either just glare, say something very creepy, make a murderous smile and laugh with a small “hehe” or answer back in a serious tone. Abderdeen is really creepy and quiet, always fascinated with the spiritual world, the occult, and death. Because of her serious nature, she can be very harsh on herself and tends to self punish herself when she fails to do something correctly. Sometimes she contemplates death, being jealous of ghosts and figuring that her powers make her resemble a dead person anyway. Her demeanor makes it hard for her to have any friends, even though she secretly wouldn’t mind having a few. People have always found her weird and creepy and tend to stay away from her. If someone were to be her friend, Aberdeen would give them the highest loyalty and trust she can possibly give. She loves to sneak out at night to go on her ghosts hunts and talk to the spirits that she finds. She can be somewhat intelligent, and will fight back if necessary.

Bio: Aberdeen Andrews is the second child of Mitchell and Madison Andrews. Her older sister, Brooklyn died when Aberdeen was thirteen years old in a car crash on her way home from work. It was a few days after her death that Aberdeen discovered her Spirit powers. Ever since then, Aberdeen had been able to see her sister and communicate with her, though she keeps this from her parents. At times, Aberdeen wishes to die in order to be reunited with Brooklyn but Brooklyn urged her to take care of her parents. It is because of Brooklyn’s insistence that Aberdeen continues to move on and learn about her powers and their relation to the occult. [/center]



Other: Aberdeen has a nickname “Abby” and she calls her sister “Brook.” If someone were to be her friend she would prefer to be called “Abby” but she feels that only Brook will ever be the one to call her that name.

Age: unknown
Gender:female…or so says “she”
Element/Type of Magic: Shadow: Spirit Although she has more of “sleeping type” powers, with powers like peering into dreams and creating nightmares.
Image
Appearance: Luciana is basically a black blob looking spirit with the only other thing being the mask on her face with purple marks, two eyes, and a mouth, although her real mouth is on her “stomach.” The mask has no nose and no other identifying features.




Personality: Luciana like her Magi is very creepy like and doesn’t speak at all, at least verbally. She speaks through her mind only to those she wishes to. She has fun stalking other people and scaring them, especially in their dreams.
Likes:
- stalking others
- peering into dreams
- her Magi
Dislikes:
- sunlight
- speaking verbally
- people making fun of her “face”
Flaws:
- doesn’t know when to stop being scary
- insensitive to other people’s emotions other than her Magi
- doesn’t understand that stalking is a bad thing
Talents:
- observant
- manipulative in dreams and words
Fears:
- that her Magi will kill herself to be with Brooklyn



Bio: Most of Luciana’s bio is either unknown or secret only to herself, although it is rumored that she is from the underworld and that she was given a chance to be saved by becoming a Magi’s partner. The only thing that’s confirmed is that Luciana’s mask wasn’t store bought and it was taken by force… [/center]



Other: Luciana’s nickname is Lucy.

So begins...

GM POST

The end of normal classes was done, and so the Magni were released to their designated classes specifically for them to learn to control their abilities. Magni filled the halls of Liuena Acamdey, the halls full of chatter and accidental slip up of their abilities.

Kirie

One such sixteen year old had that very same problem, but his was a bit more troublesome as he was bound to touch someone in the crowded halls, so every time his arm or shoulder brushed against a shoulder or arm, said person would get a light shock. Very few were lucky to only get a tingle in their arm.

”dammit! Why can’t I just stop shocking everyone, everywhere I go!” came a low tone. Some peple stared at this scrawny boy, with his shock of white hair and wine-red eyes, hidden behind the glare of his oval shaped glasses. Kirie looked around for a brief moment and put in his headphones to listen to some calming music, which helped him stop shocking people.

After the halls more or less cleared out Kirie found the room he was looking for, Room254 or as he liked to call it ”the land of misfits” a smug smile appeared on his face and he stepped into the room that he had been attending for the past few years after his Nana died. Kirie nodded to the teacher, a woman of a well-defined background of Hispanic culture and a bright smile that made anyone’s day. “Have a good summer Kirie?” ”yeah, it would have been fun if Raimei would have just gone with me to the beach” Ms. Brumfield laughed at his words and went back to her work.

you know I don’t mix well with water. What if I did come with you and killed everyone, even you Raimei’s voice never rose beyond that of a loud whisper but you could most definitely hear the fear in her voice. ”yeah, I know but still I missed you. But then again I was so busy with that damn training dad put me through I doubt I would have ever had time for the beach” shaking his head, Kirie leaned back, his hands laced behind his head and took a quick nap waiting for the new as well as old students who would no doubt be a bunch of misfits.

Aberdeen steadily walked through the halls of the school to her final class, the Magic class. She carefully eyed each person that passed by from the corner of her eyes while making sure not to maintain eye contact, otherwise she would be forced to have a conversation with them. Being new in school, she realized she was going to attract some attention but Aberdeen just looked forward towards her destination, fist clenched, boots tapping against the floor in a steady beat, and her long violet tinted raven hair flowing behind her. Luciana on the other hand was eyeing all the students, deciding who would be her next target for stalking and giving a small smile and a moan indicating she was contemplating such things. One stern look from Aberdeen signaled to Luciana, "Not now," and Luciana looked down casted as she walked with Aberdeen, disappointed that she was strictly told not to stalk anyone, at least for the time being.

Unfortunately, one of the female students that happened to cross Aberdeen's path gave her a long stare, causing Aberdeen to shy away by turning invisible. It was then that Aberdeen decided to pick up the pace and get to her destination in less than ten minutes or she would faint on the spot. After dashing through the halls with people looking confused over where the sound of clanking boots came from, Aberdeen opened the door to her class. The few people that were seated there looked at her dumbfounded since it appeared to them that the door just opened itself and a ghost walked in. "Heh, with my powers I guess I'm pretty ghost like," Aberdeen thought. Six minutes into her invisibility time limit, Aberdeen picked a spot in the back of the class where she would be able to observe the rest of the students, their mannerisms, and their personalities. Just as her time limit became less than a minute, a student tried to sit at her spot, but then Aberdeen made herself visible again, looked forward and asserted, "Seat's taken." Aberdeen then turned her head and gave her characteristic creepy smile whispering, "You can sit next to me. I promise I won't contemplate the many ways to kill you."

#, as written by Hodgic
Alvor waited a bit before heading out of the class when the bell rang. "Well I think that is long enough," Alvor said as his guardian demon appeared beside him sitting. "Well Tor, ready to head to the next class?" With a nod the dog-like creature stood up and turned towards the door. Alvor made his way to the next class where he would learn to better control his abilities.

As he walked through the hallway, still quite crowded Alvor brushed against several people. Though thanks to his clothes he needn.t worry about using his power on them. The only bit, for the most part, the showed was some of his hair and his face. It wasn't long before he made his way to the next classroom.

There were already some people here, most of which he didn't recognize. "Hey there, the name's Alvor. Hope we can all get along during this year." Alvor had a wide smile on his face, though his silent demon dog guardian was quiet as he stood next to his Magni.

Hope we can all get along during this year! Castiel mocked in a hoot. Nina shot him a warning glance, but the owl was already swooping over the dog, trying to irritate him. Nina glared, letting out a low whistle. Castiel hooted in irritation, refusing to leave the dog alone. Leave me be, Nina! Let me have fun!

Nina sighed, going back to her notes. She cringed when she heard the girl murmur something about killing people. Air was a passive element, and Nina hated confrontation. As a breeze came through the classroom, Nina relaxed. However, she must have relaxed to much, and suddenly the wind was gale force as she remembered a time last year when she had destroyed the gymnasium with a tornado.

Castiel hooted in warning, trying to get her out of the daze she had fallen into that had caused the winds. When he couldn't get her attention, he clawed her arm, making her yelp. The wind died down and Nina's face went bright red. "Sorry," She squeaked in terror. "Sorry...I'm really bad at controlling this...thing...gift...magic...whatever it is," she stood, grabbing her notebook and moving from the front of the class out to the hall to take a deep breath and calm down.

You could have killed everyone! They all look like they just sat through a wind storm! Castiel scolded as he followed her out of the room. Nina looked like she could cry and she swatted at Castiel. Go back in the room. You're probably missing something important, smarty pants, Castiel teased, making Nina smile a bit. The girl walked back into the room, sat in her desk again, and went back to her notes.

#, as written by Hodgic
Hallow Tor complete ignores the owl (Castiel) that flies around him, almost as if it didn't exist. And as far as he was concerned the owl didn't exist.

Alvor chuckled a bit at the owl's attempt to bother Hallow, "So Tor, shall we find a spot to sit?" Alvor started toward a spot towards the center. He sat down on the desk with his feet on the chair; Hallow sat down next to the chair before starting to fade out to his own home. Alvor gave out a light sigh as Hallow vanished. "He really doesn't like being in this plane of existence," muttered Alvor under his breathe. He knew Hallow was a great guardian, made clear by him coming when it was needed, but he didn't stay too much longer than that.

Alvor seemed to relax quite a bit, to the point where most people would have started to use their magic by now. However, Alvor seemed to be keeping everything completely under control. "So, when is the teacher supposed to get here?" Alvor seemed to be getting close to being bored. By the tone of his voice it was obvious.

Students parted around a single boy. He would have been walking with his brother, however, their last period wasn't the same, hell, none of their classes were. Their teachers had separated them in an attempt to cut down on their pranks. It hadn't worked. The only thing it did was keep them from meeting up as often as they would have liked. Regardless, he walked through the hallways with a massive smile on his face, waving to everyone he knew, and even the kids he didn't. Connor was well-liked by most for his amiable and humorous personality as well as his ample disregard for the rules. He wasn't a destructive, or particularly vicious kid, he just a clown with a big heart. He also happened to be a devious and... creative prankster. On his shoulder was perched a fox, of the fennec variety to be precise. This fox's name was Hans, and he was Connor's demon. Strangely enough, it spoke. "Do we really have to go to this meeting? I thought we did stuff like this last year. We both know it's going to be incredibly boring." Connor chuckled, shaking his head and nearly dislodging his little partner. "Now, now Hans. We both also know that it's important to go to these meetings. We're getting assigned to a new teacher this year. Last year's advisor decided she needed a break from us, remember?" Connor chided, to which Hans only scoffed.

"Feh, she was too twitchy to begin with, whoever put her in charge of you and your miscreant brother was touched in the head." Hans supplied, making Connor sputter and cough he laughed so hard. Once more, Connor moved in such a manner as to unseat his little fox, still Hans clung onto his master with supernatural dexterity. "Be nice now, Hans. She was perfectly respectable, she was just trying too hard while we weren't trying hard enough." Connor countered, to which Hans ceded. "Welp, I dunno about you, but I'm lost. What say we find the place the easy way?" Connor asked, to which Hans nodded vigorously.

At that, Connor slipped into the bathroom, he walked into a stall without locking the door behind him, instead, he just closed the door. He didn't sit, or even use the bathroom, instead, Connor clapped his hands. Slowly, he felt his power flow through him and in a few moments the magic began to unfold. Connor liked to keep his magic a secret. It was common knowledge that Connor was a Water-type Magni and what he lacked in talent, he made up for with enthusiasm. Secretly though, Connor's true area of expertise, was shapeshifting. Only Hans and Kieran knew. If word got out that the single best prankster in the school could be a tiny little rabbit or a humongous rhinoceros, then his reputation as a silent and perfect prank assassin would be tarnished. Connor could transform into any mammal of his choosing. In a very short amount of time, Connor's body shrunk to a fraction of its size, his arms and fingers lengthening while the rest of his body shrunk. Soon, Connor was a bat. A small, vampire bat to be exact. He slipped out of his clothes, which Hans readily scooped up, and began echolocating, the sound forming a sonic map of the area in his head. He fluttered his way up and over to an open air vent, slipping inside the school's infrastructure without a sound. Hans followed soundlessly behind him, jumping up into the vent with ease, all the while carrying Connor's clothes on his back. Using his vastly enhanced senses of smell and hearing, Connor effortlessly located the room he was supposed to meet up in.

While still in the ceiling, Connor had Hans lay his clothes out and slipped back into them while he was still a bat. Then, after snapping his jaws, Connor released the spell. He quickly grew back to his regular size, his clothes fitting over the top of his body like a glove. However, once transformed, Connor was far too heavy for the fragile ceiling tiles to support. He fell through with a loud crash, flipping over in mid-air to land on his belly with an exaggerated grunt. As the dust around him settled, Hans decided that would be the most opportune time to jump down, announcing their presence. He landed on top of Connor's head with a small affectionate yip, coercing another groan out of the winded Connor. At that, he rose as quickly as he could, comically unsettling Hans, who fell off and over his shoulder as Connor rose. "You idiot!" Connor yelled at Hans, fake anger filling his voice. "Of all the places to land, you chose my head?" Hans rose, shaking the dust off of his body. "Of course, that was the only thing soft enough to break my fall." Hans said, completely deadpan. The pair stared at each other for a while before breaking out into raucous laughter. Hans jumped into Connor's arms and they hugged. "I suppose I can forgive you, ya useless furball." "And I you, oh smelly and worthless one."

It was at this point they realized they were not the only ones in the room. "He he... oops?" Connor said with a shrug, a sheepish smile on his face. "I guess with is where the meeting is, eh? Well, good news Hans, our map of the ceiling is accurate!" Connor exclaimed. "Excellent news." Hans said monotonously. "The gods of pranking smile upon us." Hans said, finishing their joke. "Oh! Alvor! Hey buddy, what's up?" Connor asked, recognizing his roomie.

After the crash of the ceiling and the drop of another kid, yet again from the ceiling, Jaxon just coughed and shielded Tama from the mass of dust and plaster. "Ugh idiots... No matter where you go you always have people like them eh?" Jaxon then started shaking his head as he saw Tama stand up with bright eyes. Tama then chased down the fox and the boy who crashed and started to introduce himself, "H-hey Tama what do you think you're doing?" Jaxon then stood up and raced over to the new kid and the fox as well. After reaching the pair he hid his mouth behind the collar of his shirt and picked up Tama and quickly apologized, "I'm sorry, Tama here kind of likes to talk to whoever he finds interesting." After saying this he put Tama inside the collar of his shirt and awkwardly held out his hand. "Well my name is Jaxon Rhys, as we're to be classmates you can call me Jax."

Also after saying this Tama peeked his head to the girl jotting down notes. "You do know there's nothing being said right?" he quickly said to the girl and jumped out of Jaxon's collar to see what she was writing down. "My name's Tama nice to meet you ma'am." He then looked to the owl and smiled. "You seem like a pretty trustworthy guardian so I hope we can be friends." To this Jaxon's face went dark. 'Oh man how am I going to go through school with Tama just doing what he pleases? I seriously need to teach him something called personal space...' After shaking his head he just sat beside Connor and called Tama back over before blushing slightly and hiding his face in his collar.

Venice R. Mikaelo

Venice was leaning against a section of wall outside his next class. His slender fingers flicked the delicate pages of his book with utmost care and attention, his eyes quickly scanning over the words as his reading pace was faster than the average person while other students shuffled past him, sometimes even over him which didn't bother Venice- so long as no one got near his books. It was comedic to watch from afar how students would step on his shoes and he wouldn't flinch, excluding raising his arms to and fro to avoid the book coming into contact with anyone but himself. When the mayhem died down, the book would be brought back to chest level, and he'd be reading it like nothing ever happened.

"What are you reading?"

A curious question posed by a curious-looking child, who was actually a demon. He looked very much like an ordinary child, the only distinctive feature possibly being his blood red eyes as he stared up at the Magni hoping for an answer as an answer wasn't guaranteed particularly when this Magni had his nose lost in a book.

"30 Ways to Manipulate a Demon, fascinating topic isn't it?"

Venice replied, his tone rather neutral as he continued to flick over another page. His long green hair flowed to the side like silk as a breeze entered through the windows but his eyes remained firm and concentrated on the wisdom written down on page 14. Unfortunately for him, his demon child was growing bored at observing the masses and class was soon to begin.
Venice inhaled deeply before deciding to shut his book. As much as he disapproved of leaving a good book unfinished, it would have to be left for another time. The book turned out to be small enough to be pocketed. He then adjusted the hat on his head as the breeze from earlier had moved it slightly, then proceeded to lean down a bit in order to tighten the bright red ribbon tying back Jenkins; his demon child's hair.

"Good to go, sir?"

Sometimes, it seemed like Jenkins only made conversation with questions. Venice nodded in response, looking down at the demon with cold emotionless eyes that shined like glass, despite his emotions towards the demon being the opposite and Jenkins knew better than to think of Venice as just a cold-hearted Magni.
Venice led, and Jenkins followed. They were an odd looking pair considering from their school experience, it looked as if the majority of demons were in animal forms whereas Jenkins looked for the most part human. He had been mistaken as a student like Venice far too many times to count as well.
Venice opened the door to the classroom in a casual manner, not making eye contact with anyone including the teacher. In fact, Venice walked past the teacher as if she didn't exist and took a seat next to a random student (Aberdeen) while Jenkins sat crossed-legged on the floor in front of his desk. It was their usual routine in this class at the very least. Venice quietly cleared his throat as he looked out of the corner of his eyes at just who he was sitting next to.
It turned out to be a female with dark hair as long as his and violet eyes that spoke volumes of what was it.. loneliness maybe? Venice wasn't one to judge, and he had too poor a level of understanding on other humans to even attempt to judge so all he could do was look away and patiently await the start of class.

Lila Kyoto


Making her way through the emptying hallways, Lila biting her lip; wondering whether she would be late for class.
Hideaki was hot at her heels and seemed to be moaning on about one thing or the other although Lila really couldn't bring herself to listen so early in the morning.
patting down her skirt the girl was filled with a small bubble of excitement - Every new term brought up that same orb of happiness and, unlike some of her classmates, she was glad to be back.

If anything, Lila was relieved that the halls were fairly empty seeing as when she got quite as excited as she was right now, her power seemed her make her, glow of sorts which to people looking at her would most probably burn their eyes - Like looking directly into the sun for too long, you would start seeing splatters in your vision and be forced to look away.

'Hurry up!' Hideaki whispered to Lila and Lila alone, 'You're going to be so late on your very first day back!'
And rather than argue with him - Which is what she would most usually do - Lila decided that he was most probably right and zoomed on, finally finding the room marked '254'.
And yet before she opened the door, Lila stopped short, causing Hideaki to ram into her legs, frowning Hideaki rolled his eyes after seeing what she was doing - The small girl was getting sweets out of her bag, now of all times!
Grinning, Lila popped a strawberry lolly-pop into her mouth and opened the door to the classroom, grinning into Hideaki's disapproving face.

After gleefully greeting her teacher, the pink haired girl turned to face her class and smiled at everyone, letting her natural out-going aura spill out and she greeted everyone with a collective "Hiya!"
Hopefully soon she would find some friends that wouldn't be quite as annoying as Hideaki.
Glancing around the room, she looked to see where the free seats were.
She also noticed Aberdeen, the new girl who seemed very mysterious but that wouldn't scare her off, in fact she was often way too much for people. Maybe she could befriend the girl, besides she was new she Lila knew she would be looking for friends - Just possible not ones like Lila. But one thing was certain, boy could Lila persist.

Finding a similarly pink haired girl sitting alone, she recognized Opal - Her roommate - and walked over to her, stopping to greet Aberdeen despite the fact the girl was venturing in and out of visibility, and sitting down heavily in her seat as Hideaki ventured over to Ella, whom was under Opal's legs, and gave her a nod in greeting.

Giselle Embers
Giselle paid little attention to her surrondings taking more amusement in clicking her fingers to create little sparks of fire like a lighter. She smiled and turn ed the flame white hot then back to a cool blue amusing herself.

She seemed oblivious to the lesson the teacher was trying to teach and her eyes were fixed on the flame as if she was entranced by some kind of spell. She felt the Teacher burrowing theireyes at her and her fingers pressed together and the flame was replaced with a small wisp of ash grey smoke.

She sighed looking annoyed and uncomfortable without her flame. She silently wished Vix was with her but Vix wasn't going to 'distract Giselle from her education' as Vix claimed it to be everytime Giselle begged not to be left alone during a lesson. She frowned because she could pratically here Vix's nagging tone in the back of her mind.

Despite being irritating Giselle knew she'd never be whole if she didn't have Vix, it was like Giselle was the body but Vix was the soul. Giiselle sighed missing her demon. Vix wasn't just her 'side-kick' but her best friend and her mother and sister all rolled into one. Giselle gave the teacher a bored look trying to see if she could actually tolerate this lesson but the moment she opened her ears she ended up closing them again to the sound of lecturing teachers.

As Aberdeen waited for classes to begin, more Magni began to show up, and some of them did it through the strangest ways. While some Magni made it a point to enter the room normally and greet the class, a Magni made his grand entrance by crashing in from the ceiling (Connor) followed by another Magni walking off the wall at the back of the room (Kieran). Aberdeen admits that it’s kind of cool what the other Magni can do with their powers and wonders whether her powers would be of any use. She felt a bit embarrassed at herself feeling insecure at how weak of a power level she must be at.

While Aberdeen was resting her head on her hand, she heard someone clearing their throat softly and looked to her left. Her dark violet eyes observed a student with cyan green eyes and long light green hair to match (Venice). She nearly mistaken the student for a female due to his long hair but upon further scrutiny Aberdeen realized he was a male. He seemed to turn away upon Aberdeen noticing that he was peering towards her, making her assume that she must have had some creepy smile again that spooked him and made him turn away.

Afterwards another student, a bubblegum haired girl (Lila), stopped to greet Aberdeen just before she walked over to a similarly pink haired female student (Opal). It seemed that the two were already acquainted with each other since both Magni and their demons were engaged in conversation with each other. Aberdeen tried to pretend to be nonchalant, but loneliness crept into her skin as she observed each of the students grouping together and having their own small conversations, being totally oblivious as to whether classes started or not. Although Aberdeen didn’t like to speak much, she did want to have friends, but didn’t know if any one of these people would be willing to befriend a girl with weird tastes in the occult and death. It matched her though because of her powers of the Spirit, but it made her worried that her powers would also alienate her, even in a magic based school. Aberdeen was already shunned in her old school after she was found talking to herself in the girl’s bathroom and she did not want to repeat the experience again. Little did the students know that Aberdeen was in conversation with her long dead sister, Brooklyn, whom she likes to refer to as Brook. One of the reasons she loves her magic is that it allows her to talk to Brook and ask her for advice and comfort when she needed it. It seemed that Brooklyn felt that Aberdeen was in that time of need for she made an appearance to the seat at the right of Aberdeen that was unoccupied.

“Abby, aren’t you going to try and make some friends?”

Aberdeen carefully pretended to talk to her demon Luciana, who was in front of Brooklyn, to make it seem as though she was in conversation with her demon. Her voice was subdued so as to not give her insecurities away.

“I’m not sure, Brook. It seems that everyone is either busy or in their own conversations. Plus who would want to befriend a freak like me?”

“Abby, you know you’re in a school FULL of freaks right? Plus there’s a guy right next to you that seemed to have been interested in you if he took the time to notice you, right? Try him!

Aberdeen gazed at the cyan-eyed male student at her left, admitting that she did want to try at least a hello or her version of hello at least. Little did she notice Brooklyn winking at Luciana and Luciana motioning to the demon of the boy (Jenkins). Suddenly she heard a moan sounding like “Uugghhh!!” and knew that to be Luciana’s voice. She woke up from her spaced out self and noticed that Luciana was attempting to converse with Jenkins, but she couldn’t tell whether or not Jenkins was comfortable with Luciana’s mode of speech. Luckily, Luciana clued her in through telepathic conversation and said that she was demonstrating to Jenkins that she couldn’t speak well verbally, but speaks her best through telepathy. Aberdeen then realized what Luciana was doing and decided this was her chance. However, Aberdeen was so nervous that all she could do was poke the guy at his shoulders, gaze at him with a serious demeanor, and softly utter the word, “Hi,” as though she was the one that had trouble communicating verbally instead of Luciana.

Venice R. Mikaelo


Venice waited for the lesson to begin patiently, his eyes staring straight ahead of him at nothing in particular. Considering Liuena Academy wasn't ordinary as the class started to fill up with other Magni and their demons, many things were happening all at once besides plain bicker and chatter amongst peers. Venice had been studying at this school for only a year. It had been his first year in a school environment entirely but by now, it was just daily routine setting in. Despite all the magic surrounding him, he was closed off in his own world and didn't react to any of it as he stared on with eyes focused forward. Unlike the other students who had already started exhibiting their elements before the class even began, Venice was modest and did no such thing. In fact, it wouldn't be a surprise if nobody knew what his element was despite the fact he had been attending for a year. He had no friends to speak of or to, and he wasn't sure of the chances of other students observing him when the time came to demonstrate those powers for class exercises.

But perhaps it wasn't just modesty, but a level of insecurity in his ability to control those powers. He preferred to practice alone and out of sight but was certain that even if he did master an area of potential or unlock some new ability, he'd still be keeping it to himself or in a close circle of trusted allies if he should make any. He saw no point in being boastful or attracting attention, as he was just another Magni trying to get by. His belief was that being a Magni didn't make a person special, even if their Magni powers were exceedingly powerful compared to the rest. What made a Magni special in Venice's eyes, was how one chose to use their powers.

Tough situations call for tough choices and it is the choices that one makes, that reveal who that person really is.

Venice recited to himself, a quote he came up with one day while absorbed in a novel about 2 childhood friends. It was a tragic story where after friendship, followed betrayal because one of the friends sought out the discovery of a new power even at the cost of his best friend's life. It had been a long time since he had read that book but the fair amount of time he had right now to himself in contrary to the rest of the class socialising in groups and pairings, made him remember.

Never understood why one would allow themselves the luxury of friendship and letting their guard down, to reach their own demise..

Venice was pulled out of his thoughts by the familiar sound of Jenkin's laughter. Turning his head to view what was going on in regards to his demon, Jenkins was found to be seated in the same spot but facing another demon (Luciana) to the likes of which Venice hadn't seen before. It wore a white mask, with a missing nose which was what stood out most to Venice as a distinct feature. He compared it to the idea of a walking shadow, only with a mask on to show a face. It was rather ironic, wearing a mask to show a face.

That's a new one.

Venice thought, allowing Jenkins room to converse or so he assumed it was demon conversing. It was difficult to tell since neither of the pair of demons were even opening their mouths, save a few laughs from his demon. Jenkins appeared to only be nodding and laughing a little bit now and then but Venice was sure the demon child was having a spectacular time. He had known Jenkins for long enough to read his emotions, even though Jenkins was more uptight and formal compared to other demons at that young age of 10 that Venice had encountered thus far.

It was then that Venice felt a bit of pressure applied at his right shoulder and turned his attention away from the demons over to whatever was responsible. It turned out to be a poke from the girl (Aberdeen) seated next to him which was odd. Venice couldn't recall the last time someone ever poked him, if ever. Classes normally went on with nobody bothering him, but it was a welcome change of pace.

"Hi."

A greeting was even more rare and it made him start to wonder if he did anything wrong to bring it about, considering it was an unusual situation.

"Hello."

Venice greeted back politely but with a tone that lacked emotion. His eyes naturally looked over her facial features since prior he had only managed a side glance without staring too much. She appeared younger than him, and he did not recognise her from last year's classes or maybe he had just missed her? He wasn't the most observant of the lot. Venice felt a pair of someone else's eyes on him and turned for a brief second to realise it was just Jenkins. Jenkins was probably eager to see how Venice would even handle a conversation should one ensue after the small tap on the shoulder.

"May I be of assistance? or have I inconvenienced you?"

Venice inquired. Thinking further on what he just said, he felt as if Jenkins' conversational skills on asking questions all the time was beginning to rub off on him.

Like demon, like Magni.

Kirie

He cracked open a single red eye, looking about the room as new and old students poured into their last class of the day, the class that would teach them to control their abilities. Ms. Brumfield greeted all if not most of them with a simple smile or greeting.
So when a student spoke softly about not killing someone, he opened both eyes in amusement. fat chance they would let you get away with it newbie a smirk planted itself on his face. After that things got a bit more exciting as the veterans of the class came in, and a few newbies as well. But he decided to go back to his nap, leaning back his hands laced behind his head, you could easily tell just how relaxed and at home he was.

Suddenly the ceiling broke and a kid (Connor) fell right on his stomach and then a fox looking thing (Hans) landed on his head. This made Kirie just about jumped right out of his seat but relaxed upon hearing the voices of which they belonged to. Then another student (Kieran) came in with a rather grand entrance if you asked him about his thoughts. This student walked right off the walls and Kirie rolled his eyes at how comical the twins were.
I don’t see how that could amuse anyone. If that had been me I could have electrocuted him. Raimei decided it had been best that she keep hidden from view and in her own world but kept that telepathic link with Kirie so the two could speak. ”Nah you would have been fine I trust in your ability” giving his demon a smile or at least he thought he did as he wasn’t quite sure where she was around him.

The seating of an obviously new student (Aidrid) caught his attention, especially the guys demon (Decenti), who could have passed for a human if it weren’t for the crow like wings poking out from his back. Raising a brow Kirie leaned forwards in his seat, glancing at the guy from the corner of his eye. Raimei then flickered into becoming visible with each flicker and stared at the demon with the wings ”I wish I was like you then I wouldn’t have to worry about hurting anyone” her voice quiet and sad.

”nah don’t be so hard on yourself Raimei I like you just the way you are.” this earned him a grateful smile from Raimie who at the moment wished she could hug her beloved Magni but would have killed him. Kirie then turned his attention back to the student who sat beside him ”so are you new here, I don’t think I’ve seen you around before?”

But before the kid could reply Ms. Brumfield stood up from her desk and walked to the board writing out the words Lessons on Magic Control in big loopy letters on the board. Then turning to the class she cleared her throat authoritively and waited for them to quiet down. After a few minutes however she frowned, and clapped her hands. Suddenly a loud thunder clap echoed throughout the room making some if not all the students’ jump. Smiling at having their attention or at some of their attention she spoke “okay so now that I have your attention who can tell me why you’re here for?”

”Hello.”

Aberdeen’s violet eyes widened for a bit until she quickly narrowed them at the student that had responded to her attempt at making a greeting without lacing it with some creepy remark. She was surprised that poking someone and greeting “hi” with a serious face and tone of voice actually worked and didn’t send the person running to the nearest exit. That was the usual response she was given back at her old school, though it was probably because of the rumors that spread about her that she doesn’t want to recall again. Although he seemed to be polite, the student spoke without emotion, and Aberdeen wondered if this was just part of his personality.

”May I be of assistance? Or have I inconvenienced you?” the student spoke once more.

Aberdeen then clenched her fist and continued to stare fiercely at the light green haired student. She was trying to mask her intense nervousness and shyness that she couldn’t help but feel when confronted with the opportunity to speak to someone. Luciana then came into Aberdeen’s thoughts who asked, “Abby, what’s wrong?”

“Lucy, I don’t know how to respond.”

“Just say anything.”

What Aberdeen would’ve said in response to the guy’s question was, “No inconvenience. Rather, I feel this is a much convenient method of meeting you rather than my usual stalking methods.” However, a deafening clap of thunder roared throughout the room, causing Aberdeen’s nervousness to get the better of her and causing her to unintentionally turn invisible in front of her inquirer. She looked towards the front to see her teacher smiling, waiting for students to pay attention to her class. “Dammit…” Aberdeen mumbled to herself and quickly went back to her seat to collect herself and turn visible again. She dared not to look back at the guy with green eyes, not wanting to embarrass herself any further. She called Luciana in her mind to come back with her, who moaned “ Uhhhh…” in a sad tone. It seemed her conversation with the boy’s demon went well.

Then the teacher asked,“Who can tell me why you’re here for?”

“Same thing as all other years, because some people here can't control their magic.”

Aberdeen then stared down into her notebook, thinking about how true that was for her. She had to silently breathe in and out to make sure she wouldn’t turn invisible again. Ever since she learned invisibility, she had trouble trying not to turn invisible whenever she was very nervous or embarrassed, and had to hide it by running away from people before it happened. Sometimes she stayed invisible for too long and she would knock out and wake up in the infirmary with the nurses asking her what happened. Obviously she couldn’t tell them that she fainted because she stayed invisible for more than ten minutes. It got to a point where her parents were concerned and inquired her about it, but she couldn’t tell that to them either along with the fact that she can see Brooklyn.

“Why I’m here...” Aberdeen thought, “...that’s because of Grandma Alma. “ Aberdeen remembered that it was her grandmother that introduced her to the Academy. When her parents told Alma about Aberdeen’s fainting spells, she had suspected that Aberdeen had trouble controlling her magic and inquired her about it. Aberdeen denied it until her grandmother had shown her an old medal with “Liuena Academy” on it. She learned that her grandmother was also a spirit magni just like her and has also been able to see Brook accompanying Aberdeen. It was Grandma Alma that suggested Aberdeen study at the Academy to master her spirit magic. When Aberdeen asked why her parents never told her, Alma said that it was because the magic skipped her father’s generation and that her mother, Madison was not a magni. However, it seems that Aberdeen had inherited the magic. Aberdeen then went to the Academy with her grandmother covering for her and telling her parents about how good a school it was minus the magic.

Recalling why she was here, made Aberdeen calm down and remind herself that she need not be embarrassed because everyone in this class had the same problem as her. She decided not to give that whole answer she had in her mind on why she was here because she did not want to talk in front of the class and because it was such a long story that she did not want to use energy in telling. Instead, she simply looked to the front with serious eyes, wondering what she will learn in this class.

As his classmates reacted to his spectacular entrance, Connor flashed a huge, cheesy smile and flipped the thumbs up. He loved how his ability to brighten up a room hadn't changed. Suddenly a lot of things happened at once. His roommate Alvor caught his attention by tossing a crumpled up ball of paper at him which he caught one-handed before opening it to examine its contents. It was a comprehensive map of the school, complete with air-ducts, secret passageways, and a few things Connor hadn't seen before. The looked like whole secret rooms. He would most certainly have to test this map out. "Awesome! Thanks Al! This is sweet!" Connor waved at his roommate, thanking him for the map. Then, another pair walked up to him, first a cat, who introduced himself as Tama, followed by a nervous looking boy who said, ""I'm sorry, Tama here kind of likes to talk to whoever he finds interesting." After saying this he put Tama inside the collar of his shirt and awkwardly held out his hand. "Well my name is Jaxon Rhys, as we're to be classmates you can call me Jax." Connor took his hand and shook it. "I'm Connor, this little ball of mischief is called Hans, and we're glad to meet you." Connor said with a huge smile. "But Connor, we're not glad to meet him, or at least I'm not. I suppose meeting isn't a bad thing, but I wouldn't say that I specifically am glad to meet him. Stop lying Connor, dad told us it was bad." Hans said, his voice full of it's usual sarcasm and derision. "Sorry about him. He likes to pretend he's super aloof and hard to get along with. The little fuzz-ball actually loves people, so I'm sure he's glad to meet you." Connor explained.

Connor was just about to answer his brother, and call shenanigans because he doesn't walk anywhere, when suddenly the room was filled with a thunderous boom. The teacher, Ms. Brumfield, had walked in and clapped, signalling the young mages to sit down and get ready for their class. Connor took his seat and turned his attention to the board which had the words: Lessons on Magic control written in big loopy letters on the whiteboard. She directed a question at the class. "Okay so now that I have your attention who can tell me what you’re here for?" She asked and was immediately answered by both Kieran and a blonde haired girl Connor didn't quite recognize.

First was the blonde girl who said, "Same thing as all other years, because some people here can't control their magic." There was just the littlest bit of derision in her voice, as if she held disdain for anyone and everyone she didn't like. It was strange. Then Kieran answered, and his version made Connor have to stifle a laugh. Kieran deliberately provoked their teacher. "Well Mrs. Brumfield, that is quite simple, I am here supposedly to learn how to better control my magic. But let's all be honest here, I am probably just gonna goof off and cause trouble for you, all in the name of a few laughs out of my classmates. The same thing I did last year, and probably the reason that Mrs. Gregory said she could not teach this class again, I guess Connor and I are just too much for some people to handle." He finished with a smirk on his face. Connor buried his face in his notebook, attempting, and failing, to hide his laughter. It was just too funny. Finally, once he'd contained himself, Connor sat back in his chair and actually prepared himself to take notes. Connor would never tell Kieran, but he felt like... actually trying this year. Connor wanted to get better at controlling his water magic, the pranking capabilities with water were endless, especially because water was such a harmless medium. Further, it gave him an excuse to keep his ability to shapeshift to himself. The better he got at manipulating water, the less he'd have to rely on shifting. WHat connor didn't know, however, was that soon, shifting would become his entire focus.

Giselle Embers
Giselle looked at her desk offically bored and ready to leave. She tried to think of an excuse or a drama she could cause to get her out of here. She looked at the teacher's drink and put a tiny barely noticeable white hot flame under it. If she heated it enough the Teacher would be burnt and leave the classroom and then Giselle could disappear out of her lesson.

She focused her attention on making the glass hotter and hotter making a flame vanish whenever the teacher looked near or around the drink as to not be made the prime suspect later. Her eyes had gone an autmun red in colour since she had started heating the glass and any sign of green was almost entirely gone apart from little flecks around the inside of her iris bordering the pupil.

The teacher looked straight at Giselle and in a instant the flame and red iris' were gone and she looked like a normal kid not paying full attention to a lesson. Then when the teacher's burrowing gaze left Giselle the glass was being burnt again by a short little white spark.

Giselle played with her ginger hair as to not look like she was being menacing but her eyes never left the glass until they had to and her attention was entirely focused as if she were in some sort of trance or under a dark spell.

Kirie

He too jumped but wasn’t all that bothered until he remembered Raimei. "Raimei you okay?" looking about him without being to obvious about it. His eyes locked with the kid (Aidrid) who sat next to him and acknowledged his nod.

I’m okay i guess. I should have gotten used to her doing that her sigh came out as a small crackle of electricity as it ran along the outline of Raimei’s shape. Kirie knew his demon could be scared very easily, often losing shape for a moment as her body went haywire. well I guess that’s what happens when your body is made entirely of electricity Kirie frowned but smiled at Raimeis reply I heard that Kirie. It doesn’t help. her voice was now barely a whisper.

"No it didn’t but I trust that you won’t electrocute me" another crackle came about but this one sounded nicer and he realized for the first time Raimei had laughed. An equally happy smile plastered itself on to his face and Kirie faced forwards.

Except the answers Ms. Brumfield received were semi-correct and just plain rude. Kirie shook his head at their answers but decided not to put his input as it wouldn’t help anything. Ms. Brumfield could tell that some of the students showed discomfort by her question as well as from the answers she received from the older students.

She began to chuckle but she wasn’t mad at all as some had thought she was. “Well I see you’ve done your homework. But yes that’s what your here for and don’t worry Kieran it won’t be enough to drive me away. I can assure you have my means to put you in place.” A kind smile that contradicted her words that sounded very much like a threat.

“But more to the point some of you think I’m just going to give some boring lectures about how to control them but I won’t give you hands on experience. But today I’m going to give all of you hands on experience. Each of you will be paired with another student and it will be random so no complaining.” Ms. Brumfield looked over at Giselle her gaze narrowed as the girl tried to hide her activities. Turning back to the board Ms. Brumfield began to write up the names: Connor Vs. Melody, Lila Vs. Alexis, Aidrid Vs. Venice, Giselle vs. Alvor, Opal Vs. Aberdeen, and Kirie Vs. Jayson. Then turning back to face them Ms. Brumfield leaned against her desk about to reach for her coffee but could feel the warmth radiating from her mug.

Then a better idea came to mind, “Giselle could you taste this for me, my tongue is very sensitive to heat. See if it’s too hot, and considering your fire elemental I’m sure you can handle some heat” passing the mug to Giselle, to taste. Then turning back to the class Ms. Brumfield smiled, “well there’s your pairings. Now if I catch you overdoing it, there will be severe punishment, and you will not like what it is” her smile turned cruel as she snapped her fingers. Electric sparks danced across her fingers, this caught Kiries attention and a smile twitched at the corners of his lips. I do not want to be at her that lady’s mercy at all . Kirie knew full well just how painful a shock could be but for her to have been able to create that loud sound she must have built up a lot of electricity.

Giselle smiled at the Teacher confidently and took a gulp of water. “Yep, it’s perfect Miss, Not too hot at all. Bit bitter though..” Giselle knew she was being tested here and she knew how to handle it...maybe she could convince the Teacher to drink it still. After pushing the mug dangerously close to the edge of her desk she looked at the board and looked for her name.
Giselle VS Alvor Giselle arched an eyebrow and her eyes searched the room for Alvor. Giselle was a competitive girl and didn’t plan on losing at all and it was fairly clear by the amused but determined look on her heart-shaped face. She turned her attention back at the mug decided at some point she’d accidently push it off the desk. Then she noticed a red dash by the window and her head moved noticeably quick towards the window.
She could see easily it was Vix by the animals speed and elegance not to mention her petit sizing and bright red fur. Vix sat down and gave Giselle a warning glare through the glass of the window and Giselle felt herself sinking into her own skin. Vix intimidated Giselle with her wisdom and intelligence but Giselle wasn’t one to listen most of the time. She looked at the mug then at Vix then jolted her leg up into the desk sending a slight vibration through the wood. The mug crashed and Giselle muttered ‘Ow’ rubbing her knee.
It’d been half accidental and half on purpose. She’d meant to knock the mug but not hit her knee so hard on the wood. She glared at the table as if it were the table’s fault then calmed down enough to have her skin stop being bright red and her eyes stopped being narrowed at the table.
She sent little sparks off her fingers and she searched out her duelling partner with bright eyes. She tried to ignore the pulsing and throbbing in her knee and focused her attention on getting in the right sense of mind for a spar or duel- whichever you’d rather call it.

Opal had been in her own little world, and even Ella couldn't snap her out of it, though she tried. The small red panda kept crawling up and over her arms, and her head. The paper in front of her was filled with doodles, swirls, and patterns. It wasn't until she heard her name that she snapped out of it. "Oh shoot! Whaddamiss, Ella?" Opal wispered. Ella's red-black paws found their way onto Opals slim shoulders and she rolled her eyes. "Your going to be dueling, with that girl Aberdeen" Ella nodded towards the girl. "Oh. Wonder what she can do?" Opal said, looking at the girl.

Opal was worried about this duel now. She could only do so much with her power- and it wasn't even a [i]good
power. She could change the weight of things. Big deal. Others could do much more powerful things- and that scared her. "All you can do is do your best. Don't worry about it. I'm sure you'll do just fine." Ella said, crawling down to twist between Opal's legs like a cat would. Opal bent down and patted the creature's head before she folded her hands over her desk and laid her head in the little crook created there. "Yes. I'll do just dandy Ella" she said sarcastically. She loved her power, but it wasn't the best power she had ever seen. Though, she wouldn't change it for her life. She had a complicated option about it all.

After a few moments the perky pink-head looked up and tried her best to pay attention to the teacher. She was passing a mug to a woman. Opal was confused by this, but she figured she must have a reason, so she just rolled her eyes and began to pet Ella, who had traveled up onto the table again.

Kirie
The fact that he turned into a dragon made him smile, a chuckle escaped his lips but stopped when Ms. Brumfield glanced over at him. damn she is going to be a tough one shaking his head Kirie listened to the other students exchange about duels but he was more so focused on his opponent someone by the name of Jayson.

wonder who that is, she must be new if I don’t know them a frown crept its way onto his lips as Kirie leaned forwards to listen closely to what the teacher said next. Kirie stifled a mocking laugh at Giselle who knocked over the teachers mug, shaking his head at her clumsiness.

Ms. Brumfield

“aye dios mio!” sighing Ms. Brumfield shook her head bending down to clean up what was left of her coffee. Standing back up she dropped the remains into the trash bin and faced the class again, her gaze settled on Giselle for a moment before returning back to the others. Kieran caught her attention by the fact that he turned into a cartoonish dragon, which surprised her but not really.

“Kieran sit down, just because I didn’t put your name up doesn’t mean I forgot about you. But seeing as I didn’t put up Jaxsons name either ill leave it be for now.” but Ms. Brumfield wasn’t done, with a slight flick of the wrist a small bolt of electricity was sent right towards Kieran and shocked him. “Now back to the issue at hand as I have already said we are to be doing practice duels, you fail or break the rules(Check OOC) you will be punished” smiling at her students.

Then a late student appeared, “ah Li Wen good to see that you made it. Next time try not to be late. We are going to the practice arena for practice duels. Everyone is in pairs but since you’er late you’ll have to sit this one out as punishment and simply because there is no one else to pair you up with”. Giving Li a kind smile.

Ms. Brumfield then walked out from behind her desk and towards the door, “now let’s go to the practice fields no use in doing it in here”. Soon enough the students arrived in the practice arena. The place was huge with giant archways in front of the stands. Ms. Brumfield stood in the middle of the field and motioned to the first two pairs of oppenents. “start when you are ready, those who are waiting your turns go sit in the stands and devise a plan of action until then be silent, cheer if you must but do not give those fighting any help”. So with that Ms. Brumfield stepped back for those who would fight waiting for when they were ready to start.

When Aberdeen had finally gotten back to reality, she realized her teacher mentioned something about having a duel against another student to put one's magic to the test. After many annoying strokes of the chalk with some screeches in between, the teacher moved to the side so that the names of the dueling pairs would be visible to everyone. Aberdeen picked her name out of the list and saw that she was paired with someone named Opal. She tried to scan the room to guess who could be an “Opal” but she couldn’t tell just from the name. Aberdeen wondered who Opal was and what her powers would be. She was proud of her own magic, but she feared it lacked offensive strength. Nevertheless, Aberdeen was determined to try and make it work, even if she had to be elusive and on the defensive before she can strike. She hoped to use her knife as her offensive point, sheathed of course, as to not pierce the skin of her rival.

It appears the teacher had forgotten two people, and one of them decided to call her out on it and make a spectacle of himself(Kieran) by turning into a dragon with a somewhat cartoony figure like the ones Aberdeen had seen on some cartoon action shows.

“Great timing, I was getting horrendously bored,” a blonde girl with headphones replied to his antics (Melody).

“Always glad to entertain a lady,” the shadowy dragon returned back.

“Hey! Jaxon’s name wasn’t written on the board! I guess that means he’ll be your partner!” a cat, the demon of the kid, pointed out. ”Glad that wasn’t me…I hate getting called out like that” Aberdeen thought. ”Then again, what would Lucy do? She can’t verbally speak.” At that moment, Lucy looked towards Aberdeen with a “grin,” at least she assumed it was a grin behind the mask she wore because Lucy’s demon eyes peering from the holes in the mask for her eyes were glowing with a mischievous happiness flickering in them. Before Aberdeen could figure out what Luciana was up to, she heard in her thoughts, “Opal? Where Opal? Aberdeen partner! Want to stalk her…Hehehe.” Aberdeen then put her head down and pretended to just be focused on her notebook, embarrassed by her demon’s urge to stalk her sparring partner.

“Kieran sit down, just because I didn’t put your name up doesn’t mean I forgot about you. But seeing as I didn’t put up Jaxon’s name either I’ll leave it be for now,” Aberdeen heard the teacher say. She heard the sound of electrical waves being sent toward someone and an “OWWW” from the receiver. Aberdeen couldn’t help but move her lips into a grin and tried to hide it.

After the teacher ranted on punishment for breaking the rules, a late student (Li) arrived who unfortunately could not participate. Then the class was brought to the practice arena that was enormous with giant archways in front of the stands. Aberdeen thought it would be good to observe and take note of the arena to plan her battle. She noticed that some parts of the field were boarded up and wondered whether they were to hide holes or to provide some fodder to throw around and use magic on. The arena seemed to be open, so it would be difficult for her to hide. However, she knew that she could use her invisibility powers for a short while, should she need to conduct some evasive maneuvers. Unfortunately, she can’t seem to find any other use for her invisibility and her ability to see ghosts wouldn’t really do much. Aberdeen knew that in order to at least give a decent fight, she would have to observe her opponents moves, fighting style, and attitude during the match and avoid any attacks until she can strike with her sheathed knife.

It seemed that a few students did not want to participate in the fight, and wondered how the teacher would deal with that situation. Aberdeen still did not know who she would be fighting, but it seemed Lucy had found out because she was looming over a Magni with pink hair(Opal) sitting next to a small red panda. Aberdeen recognized the girl as the one that the other pink haired girl, the one that greeted her, flocked towards. For some strange reason, Aberdeen felt a pang of jealousy towards this girl and made it a resolve to prove to that other pink haired girl(Lila) that she was worthy of becoming her friend by beating this girl. She then studied this girl’s moves and mannerisms, hoping to find out a little bit about her opponent before the battle.

Venice R. Mikaelo


It appears that I lack your social skills Jenkins..

Venice and his demon exchanged glances. He wasn’t sure how to handle the situation between him and the girl seated beside him (Aberdeen) as she stared with such a fixed gaze, that it was almost as if she was glaring. Under Venice’s poor interpretation of these sorts of things, he assumed he had made an error of speech and tried to figure out how to rectify it. Although Venice’s face was a puzzle as it remained as expressionless as ever, he was concerned about how to respond to a person who wasn’t responding to him. He was aware that turning away was an option, but it felt impolite to do so. After much mental debating, nothing happened. Alas, neither Venice nor the girl (Aberdeen) got around to the opportunity to utter another word as a loud sound similar to that of thunder, roared across the room. With a mere blink, the dark-haired girl (Aberdeen) he was facing had vanished unexpectedly. It was more of a surprise to Venice in comparison to the teacher’s clap. Confused, he directed his attention to what he was sure about which was the start of the lesson.

“okay so now that I have your attention who can tell me why you’re here for?”

Venice was unfortunately not the type to share his thoughts with anyone, let alone an entire class so he did not answer the teacher’s question in any shape or form. He had never done so in his past year of schooling and today wasn’t going to be any different in that regard. Believing he had overheard a slight mutter coming from the empty seat, Venice checked it out to find the mysterious girl (Aberdeen) had returned.

Ah, of course. We’re Magni.

Venice thought almost scolding himself for feeling so surprised originally about the occurrence. The social opening had probably tipped him off his usual self more than he thought it would but the lesson was serving as a good reminder of reality as the topic of ‘control’ was discussed; his greatest fear. Some students responded realistically, while others took the opportunity to make a joke out of it but Venice took into account all differing views while clinging onto his own.

We are either here to learn how to control, or to be controlled..

It was quite an accusation against the academy but Venice wasn’t the most trusting. In his attendance, he had been recorded and noted as a good pupil but he still had his doubts on the motives of other human beings in general. It was what he grew up to believe plus all the books he had read in his time, only furthered the idea that human beings tended to be selfish and look out for their own- most seeking control rather than giving others control. Maybe with the amount of Magni who had gone wrong with misfired powers, the academy wasn’t keen to teach them control but to teach them how to use their powers, in order to maintain control of society. A group of inexperienced Magni adolescents would definitely prove to be an ‘out of control’ situation.

“But more to the point some of you think I’m just going to give some boring lectures about how to control them but I won’t give you hands on experience. But today I’m going to give all of you hands on experience. Each of you will be paired with another student and it will be random so no complaining.”

Having heard Ms. Brumfield crystal clear, Venice waited patiently to listen to the random pairings assigned to the class. He wasn’t the biggest fan of team work or rivalry but being the requirement for today, he would follow the process. Consequently, His cyan eyes were drawn towards the lettering upon the board as he read his pairing: ‘Aidrid Vs. Venice’. Venice wasn’t familiar with the name but he was pretty confident to conclude it was a male.

“well there’s your pairings. Now if I catch you overdoing it, there will be severe punishment, and you will not like what it is”

The punishments while serious, was a far cry from why Venice would do as he was told. For the most part, he was just a peaceful and humble person. Additionally, if the academy could help him learn, understand and master his element, then he would be grateful. If the academy could not assist him, then he would be thoroughly disappointed but not to the point he would seek to cause trouble. It was a wonder why students were present at all with some already wreaking havoc in minor things. They were most certainly attending for a reason, were they not? In his belief, they were only making things more difficult for themselves.

It wasn’t long before all the students were gathered at the practice arena and Venice was left to wait for his turn against an Aidrid fellow.

Aberdeen let Luciana wander and stalk Opal as she wished, hoping that maybe she’d get some info on her, though not very likely since Lucy simply likes to scare her prey. It seemed the students that refused to battle had to come after school or tomorrow to show Ms. Brumfield their powers. Aberdeen didn’t care much for them, rather seeing it as less people to observe.
“Mrs. Brumfield, Kieran and I would be more than happy to start off I mean it’s easier to get this out of the way now than later right?” a boy with bright orange hair (Jaxon)suggested. ”Also I’d like to have Tama with me he won’t be fighting he just helps me with my magic is all.”

The two opponents, Kieran with dark turquoise hair and the bright orange haired student (she didn’t catch his name) began to battle.

“Alright here we go everyone the fight to end all fights. The bout that could determine the fate of the world. The….” Kieran went on in an announcer voice to rev up the students and bring forth some laughter. Aberdeen couldn’t help but giggle a bit, but she immediately covered her mouth and pretended to look serious. The battle started with Kieran turning into a shadow and traveling behind the orange haired boy and tapping him on the shoulder. Suddenly the boy jumped away, landed on thin air, and taunted Kieran with this arms stretched out in boredom.

Aberdeen decided to turn her eyes to the other match currently in play, the match between Lila and Alexis as Ms. Brumfield had announced. Lila made the first move stretching her arms out wide and creating small orbs of light in both sides of the room. Then she produced four small light blasts towards Alexis. Aberdeen hated seeing the light being a Magni of Shadow typed powers and decided to look away before she could see the effects of the blast. While looking away she decided to search for her demon Luciana, but Lucy was nowhere to be seen near Opal or her demon. Aberdeen looked frantically everywhere wondering who Lucy was trying to stalk next. She then turned to three Magni (Kirie, Melody, and Li) sitting next to each other in a conversation and Luciana suddenly popped up in front of a man wearing a red kimono with a yellow dragon and the yin and yang circle. She for some reason grew interest on him and stared at him with the smile that was plastered on her mask. Aberdeen knew that what was on Lucy’s mind was to put him to sleep and delve into his nightmares, so she hurriedly rushed over to them. Masking her utter embarrassment, Aberdeen tried to maintain a serious face and spoke in a monotone voice, “My apologies. Lucy seems to fancy you. She desires to stalk you and haunt you in your dreams, but no worries, I will take care of her.” Aberdeen then ended her short talk with one of her wide creepy smiles and breathed a small “hehe.”

Opal stared at the matches growing in silence. She was ready for the fight, but she didn't think she should have to fight someone who had never done anything to her- but she was not going to wimp out and not do it. So she waited. The match against Jaxon and Kieran had most of her attention, and Ella was commenting on the other match in her ear. "Ella, you really don't have to do that" she whispered and made a grab for the creature, who was nestled on top of her head. "And sitting up there makes me look silly" she commented, but Ella didn't budge. "Your hair is clean, the floor is not. Besides, it's fun to play with" the red panda said positively as she pawed at Opals hair, getting a bit between her claws and raking it out.

"That is messing up my hair, Ella" Opal said, but she smiled anyway. Her demon was a neat-freak at best, and a complete nut-job at worse. It was silly, really. "Well, I need to calm my nerves. I'm going to talk to someone. Get off my head, Ella" she hissed and Ella jumped onto Opal's book-bag with a roll of her eyes. Might as well talk to my opponent. Maybe she is a nice person Opal thought as she skipped over to Aberdeen.

"Hello!" she said brightly as she stopped in front of the lady. "I'm Opal, but I guess you may or may not already know that. I guess.. I'll be fighting you today. I think that's pretty strange though. See, at most schools they would expel you for fighting on the grounds. I know because this one time my brother Jack was. It was funny. He had to stay in his room for a week. Of course, I was only four then, so maybe he just told me that" she cocked her head to the side, as if thinking.

"No, I think it was real, because I remember picking on him for it. Anyway..." she trailed off and held out her hand. "Name's Opal... but I already told you that. This is Ella" she said as Ella popped out from behind her, chewing on a caramel. "I... f...oun...d .. it... in.... you...r...boo...k....bag" The red panda said through her chewing. "That better not be covering my bag now. I know you don't want to touch the candy but its a new book bag" Opal rolled her eyes before returning her attention to Aberdeen. "Sorry. She really likes the Carmel Candies but she hates to get her paws all sticky" she said with a lopsided grin. "It's super contradicting"

Li was looking with a great interest at the next arena match which was going to be announced shortly. He really wanted to see of what we're capable those two persons, when something appeared in front of him.At first he looked at the demon being a little scared. It was a strange being and even Hwang could not believe that there was a demon with that kind of
sinister appearance. Immediately a girl, which was the Magni of that demon apologized for what happened and offered Li and Hwang information about its abilities.
It was better than Li could expect, something strange like that offered them a valuable piece of information."Don't you worry, it isn't a problem. My name is Li Wen and my demon's name is Hwang, but I call him Master Hwang all the times. Anyway would you like to take a seat near us?"Li asked with an convincing smile. Normaly Li would have told Hwang to use one of his abilities on that
demon, only on the demon as he thought that the girl was too cute and with a nice behavior since she apologized for what her demon wanted to do, but this time he didn't tell it to do such a thing as they were in a spying mission,
not a fight, and someone could have been suspicious about them.Observing the girl, she looked to be the type of person from which he could find or sometimes extract intel from it easily.
Li continued to watch the fight with a greater interest when a demon appeared. A great red demon which was connected with Mrs Brumfield he was very scary but an interesting demon. Li was looking at him with full attention when Hwang asked him"What is the matter? You are shocked?"Li responded "Of course I am."Hwang then tells him"If you are shocked only by his appearance and not by his abilities, then this is a wrong thing."
Li realized what he was telling, their mission was to discover the abilities of every Magni and demon, and to not become suspicious for the others.As the boy was walking toward Mrs Brumfield and her demon his body started to be covered with metal, metal armor. Li decided to show this just for his own purposes. The metal armor started disappearing at some time after it was created. If someone could believe that he was only a defensive type he could use a surprise attack because of their lack of knowledge
about his powers.But the demon returned back to its realm as Mrs Brumfield showed some powers with electricity making Amon to retreat. It was a disappointment for him.

Venice R. Mikaelo


Venice sat in the stands close to no one besides his own demon, as most of his peers engaged in talk with each other. Some were making commentary on the ongoing battles while others appeared to be doing the smart thing by analysing their upcoming opponents. Venice did neither. Although he had opinions on the duels himself, he kept those thoughts to himself aware that analysing people was far from being his forte. His demon Jenkins on the other hand was having a glorious time with his mouth at times, left hanging open as his little fists were clenched and waving around everywhere in encouragement. Venice continuing to be unmoved at the current events, pulled out his earlier pocket-sized book to continue reading until the time came whereas he'd be the one being watched instead which he really wasn't looking forward to. As outrageous as his clothes were, he didn't like drawing attention to himself that served as quite a contradiction.

"Venice, Venice, you're missing out!"

Jenkins exclaimed from the edge of his seat. Venice flicked over a page and looked up from his book for a split second to see what all the commotion was about before returning to his book. He had just managed to spot what appeared to be the teacher Mrs Brumfield's demon interacting with the students and despite it being a quick look, the image was fresh in his mind. It was black and red, a very darkly-looking creature as if straight out of the depths of hell. He did not envy those who had the pleasure of getting acquainted with it. While he did like demons overall, he wasn't sure if that type of demon would be much fond of him.The sound of a girl (Melody) screaming is what had originally attracted his attention. She had blonde hair and blue eyes, seen tightly clutching onto a boy's (Kieran) arm after being so startled. Venice continued to observe as she turned away from the boy she had grabbed in a cute manner. Not wanting to appear nosey, he turned away. Venice being as stoic as ever, did not give off an expression though that could count as a reaction anyways. Jenkins must be excited.. he said that in statement form, not as a question as per usual. Venice concluded as he moved onto the next page.

"Venice? Are you listening, sir?"

Jenkins asked Venice formally, but with a tone of impatience. While Venice naturally preferred to continue getting lost in his book that had reached a particularly fascinating theory, he was also obliged to grace his demon's question with an answer at the very least.

"Yes, that I am."

Venice responded briefly, flicking over another page and sparing another glance only directed around the arena this time as if admiring the architecture. He had been here on a number of occasions, and he always sat at the same spot with nobody but his demon for company. Venice spotted a familiar face being the girl he sat next to from earlier (Aberdeen) engaged in conversation with a fellow (Li) he had never seen before, or if he had, failed to recognise. Hmm, makes me realise I don't really know anyone's name except the teacher's. Returning his sights to the pages of his book, he continued conversing with his only companion.

"If I recall the rules correctly, when my duel takes place.. you are to stand down."

Jenkins sighed exaggeratedly.

"I understand, sir. But if I may say so, I believe you to be quite poor in combat and I worry for your health."

Jenkins expressed his concerns as his face grew serious, almost matching stoic Venice's own expression.

"There's hardly any combat involved from the likes of what I have managed to overhear... mostly bickering and threats- of which don't apply effects on me."

Venice said matter-of-factly, displaying that he did use his ears to listen in even without watching the duels with his own eyes. Jenkins only chuckled childishly in reaction.

"You never cease to amaze me, sir."

Venice looked up from his book with a kind-hearted smile for a change.

"Ah well, I could say the same for you."

Venice replied, ruffling the demon boy's hair like a fatherly figure.

"Just today, you started talking to me with statements and not just questions. Consider me amazed."

At first, the boy clad in his red kimono seemed to be a bit scared by Luciana’s sudden appearance, but afterwards he collected himself and assured Aberdeen that it wasn’t a problem. In fact, he even introduced himself as Li Wen and offered the name of his demon that he calls Master Hwang. What made Aberdeen really suspicious of him was the fact that he was willing to offer a seat next to the group. Luciana’s true goal was not to scare off the other students but rather to force Aberdeen into interacting with them. She used a similar tactic earlier with the boy Aberdeen was sitting next to in class, but it was only now that Aberdeen caught onto what her clever demon was up to. Aberdeen could only stare awkwardly as she contemplated whether to ignore her uncomfortable feeling and sit with the group or trust her usual behavior and stay clear of revealing her personal information and take leave.

Once again, Aberdeen would not be making the decision. She turned around after hearing the light tapping of feet to find a girl with pink hair skipping towards her. It was Opal with her demon that had the appearance of a red fox. While Opal was speaking, Aberdeen already had the answers in her mind, but decided to keep silent, not wanting to reveal her contempt with her over Lila.

“I’m Opal, but I guess you may or may not already know that.”

”Yup…Lucy went stealth and confirmed it for me. Good job, Lucy!”

“I guess…I’ll be fighting you today.”

”No crud…I was in the back of the class and I could see our names on the board…”

”I think that’s pretty strange though. See, at most schools they would expel you for fighting on the grounds.”

”Really? Why expel us for practice?”

”I know because this one time my brother Jack was. It was funny. He had to stay in his room for a week. Of course, I was only four then, so maybe he just told me that.”

Opal then cocked her head and Aberdeen raised an eyebrow wondering what Opal was trying to do. Opal then confirmed that her memory was real and introduced herself (again) and her demon Ella who revealed herself from behind Opal chewing on a caramel. Aberdeen was starting to soften up to Opal and figured she wasn’t a threat at all, but a nice bubbly girl. ”No wonder Lila’s her friend.” Aberdeen thought. ”Maybe I shouldn’t be harsh on her. But what can I say? Maybe I can introduce her to one of my favorite songs ( Alice Human Sacrifice Note: singing starts at around :28 but the introduction helps understand the song)!” Aberdeen thought. ”That could be an icebreaker right?”

Aberdeen finally relaxed her straight serious façade that she was keeping and opened her mouth to speak but instead of her own voice talking about her favorite song, she heard the cry of a student behind her(Melody). Aberdeen was getting annoyed at the fact that this was the third time today that she didn’t get to speak and was about to just shout out what she was going to say to Opal when she turned around to see a massive black and red towering above the orange haired boy with fiery eyes.”Never mind! You can go and talk...I’ll just stay quiet again…Nice demon…” Aberdeen thought to herself, as she looked with eyes wide open at the enormous demon. After the demon left to his realm, Aberdeen let out a sigh of relief and finally replied to Opal, although instead of her intended introduction to her favorite song, she instead let out what was really on her mind.

“So, you friends with Lila over there?” Aberdeen said while pointing to the match between Lila and Alexis. She froze, gritted her teeth, and clenched her fists thinking, “So I finally get to speak and I say that!?! What will she say?!?”

Opal smiled lightly, but a little awkwardly at the extended silence between the two. Ella had dug her way back into the book bag for more caramels, and Opal was a little more than happy she could wash the thing. Her books, however, might be a little more than ruined. Oh well. I'll figure something out. The thought crossed her mind and her face lit up. Yes, it would work out right.

“So, you friends with Lila over there?" Aberdeen said and Opal immediately perked up.

"Oh yes, she is a great friend, and she is more like a sister than my real sister. We share the same choice in hair color, after all!" She said cheerily and smiled so brightly her eyes bunched up. "Plus she is my roommate this year, so I think it's better that I like her than not like her" she nodde lightly, agreeing with herself. "I personally think the fight will be fun. What is it you do, exactly? I make things float but not really move anywhere, which is a bummer. Oh! And Ella here makes me happy. Or sad, but she hasn't done that yet. Happy perfume is so much better than sad perfume though!" She said, not realizing she might not want to say that when she would be fighting the girl. Oh well.

It seemed that Opal did not feel any contempt with the question Aberdeen asked her. Rather, she immediately rambled on about how great a friend Lila was and how she was her roommate. Then she talked about the fight and asked Aberdeen what she did. Apparently, Lila’s ability is to “…make things float but not really move anywhere…” and Ella’s ability is to make her happy or sad. Aberdeen could kind of guess that Opal’s power had something to do with using some kind of force to move the objects but she couldn’t understand what Opal meant by Ella making her happy or sad. Opal had asked her about her power as well, but Aberdeen was wary of giving this kind of information before the fight.

“You’ll see very soon, if the others hurry up,” Aberdeen remarked in a serious and slightly agitated tone.

Luciana then popped in front of Opal with her usual creepy mask smile panting heavily as though she had found her lunch for the day. It seemed Luciana got bored with Li and decided to focus again on Opal now that Aberdeen had started a conversation with the pink headed girl.

“This is Luciana. She seems to have taken a liking to you. If you see her in your nightmares do play along, I’m sure she’ll enjoy eliciting a shriek from you,” Aberdeen said with a small dark grin plastered on her face. Suddenly, Luciana stared at Opal’s moving book bag closely while continuing her panting. Aberdeen had never seen Luciana stare at an object like that before and was about to ask Luciana what she was up to when suddenly, Luciana quickly shoves her hand…well extension of her shadowy body…into the book bag ruffling inside it until she grabs a few pieces of caramel. Apparently, Luciana wanted the caramel pieces that Ella was eating. Then Luciana decided to eat them and placed them inside her mouth, although her real mouth is not the mouth that is carved into her mask. Luciana’s “stomach” suddenly widened and separated into two, forming an opening that revealed the true mouth of Luciana. Her real mouth had many sharp teeth and a tongue that licked its “lips” once Luciana was done consuming her small treat. Aberdeen was used to this scene, but wondered how Opal was dealing with this sudden realization. Still, she had to scold Luciana for taking the candies without permission.

“Lucy, you know you’re supposed to ask people before you take their stuff!” Aberdeen disciplined with a strict look on her face. Luciana then bent her head down and whimpered, sad that her delicious meal was tainted by her master’s scolding.
“I’m sorry, Opal and Ella. Please forgive Lucy, I think she has taken a liking to your caramel candies.”

Afterwards, Aberdeen turned back to watch the fight between Lila and Alexis. Alexis had a shard of ice that she threw towards Lila. It zoomed quickly across the stage and all Aberdeen could think was “Lila watch out!!!” while looking worriedly at Alexis’ opponent. Aberdeen was so focused on watching that she almost didn’t feel Brooklyn’s presence behind her. If she had turned around, she would have seen Brooklyn smiling at her younger sister who seems to be having much progress. However, Brooklyn noticed something strange behind Opal. It didn’t seem that Opal noticed the little girl behind her who had dark black hair that flowed down to her waist and a plain white dress that covered her body up to her ankles. In fact, no one noticed the mysterious figure that was behind her. Brooklyn knew what it was and that Aberdeen would have been able to see the ghost that was hovering near Opal. What her purpose was, she did not know and wouldn’t find out at this time because the ghost had disappeared in a flash.





OOC: Ahh are you alright Possibility? I hope you get better. Also, the ghost is supposed to hint at what we discussed, but I changed it a bit. ;)

Opal smiled cheerily during the entire conversation, and when Aberdeen didn't say what her power was she was no worse for wear. It was just something to use to get the conversation anyway, and she would probably forget it withen the hour in any case. "Well we don't want to make them hurry to much, becuase they might mess up and then I would laugh and that is not a good way to make friends" she nodded eagerly at herself. She knew that laughing at someone was not a good way to befriend them a few years ago, and she now takes careful steps to avoid doing it again. The pale girl didn't even notice the tone of Aberdeens voice when she talked.

When Luciana appeared in front of her, the small girl jumped a little but before fixing her smile in place. She (at least, Opal figured it was a she from the name) might look scary, but who is to say if it is a nice demon? "Hello" she said, her voice only wavering a bit at the end. "Uh... Okay. Like a rolercoaster scream? Or a 'I'm scared' scream" she quiried, watching as the creature took it apon itself to search in her book bag for something. Opal didn't mind, but Ella seemed to be frightened and crawled onto the mass of pink hair on Opal's head to avoid getting to close. When she felt her bag start to shake from a hand inside it, Opal smiled. At least she didn't want to attack her or something. When it became apparent all she wanted was her candies she went back to her cheerful self.

That didn't last to long though, as the general way Luciana ate was slightly creepy in the way that sleeping in a dark room alone with no one around for miles to help if you we're to get in trouble during that sleep is slightly creepy. In the way abandoned hospitals are slightly creepy. She put on a straight face though and dared herself to grimace. It wasn't like other demons ate the way Ella ate and it wasn't her place to judge. Once she started thinking about it like she had to feed herself and so what if her mouth was a little different, that she began to calm down. Ella however, huffed and lightly hit her paw over Opal's head, in a signal that she wanted to go. Opal ignored it and began to talk to Aberdeen.

"It's really fine. Ella might not want to share-" that got her a pat on the face that was a but harder than the others "- but I don't mind. If you don't mind Lucy eating them, that is. Ella hardly ever asks, as you have already seen." With that, Ella crawled back onto her book bag and went about carving designs on Opal's neck with a claw. It didn't really hurt, but it tickled, and the pink haired girl giggled loudly before swatting Ella away. "Like I said, I forgive Lucy, but Ella might need some talking to" she laughed lightly as she swatted her hands repeatedly behind her at the red panda, who kept darting out of her way. This lead to her having to turn and put the bag at her feet, in the direction of the matches. That was when she saw a glass shard going at Lila. She wanted to scream "no" or something of the sort, but she knew Lila could handle it (or atleast she desperately hoped she could), and distracting her wouldn't be the best thing to do. Durning that time, she felt strangely chilled, but desided not to comment as she looked at the commotion in the matches.

While watching the match at the arena, Aberdeen recalled her conversation with Opal. It seemed she was frightened a bit by Luciana, because upon seeing the demon, Opal jumped a little and tried to smile. Ella was so frightened by Luciana that she scurried to the top of Opal’s head. Although Aberdeen scolded Luciana for taking candy when she wasn’t supposed to, Opal didn’t seem to mind, which made Aberdeen relax. She was surprised that Opal didn’t seem to mind the creepy nature of Luciana or her lack of ability to talk much. “Maybe Opal isn’t that bad after all,” Aberdeen thought.

Luciana quickly recovered from her whimpering and thought about Ella who seemed to be frightened of her. Although Luciana couldn’t help but laugh at how terrified the little furball was, she wanted to make friends too. Luciana grabbed some more caramel candies and held them in her hand outstretched to Ella, offering to share them with her. Knowing that Ella would probably be hesitant, Lucy used her telepathy to speak, “Here Ella, I should share these with you since they’re yours. Can we be friends?”

Meanwhile, Aberdeen felt Brook’s presence and turned to her right. She noticed Brooklyn had a very serious face and decided ask what was up.

“What’s wrong Brook?” Aberdeen whispered trying not to look at her sister.
“Abby, whatever you do be careful. I saw another ghost behind Opal.”

“Really!?! What did it look like!?!” Aberdeen exclaimed. She perked up with the prospect that there was a ghost on school grounds. She enjoyed searching for ghosts and talking to them, even going to far as to go on ghost hunts to find them. Realizing that she just shouted, Aberdeen looked down and tried to pretend nothing happened.

“She was a little girl with long dark black hair and a plain white dress. I know you like ghosts, but I think you should watch this one with caution.” Brooklyn didn’t want to say it, because she wasn’t sure, but now that she thought about it, she remembered that before the mysterious figure disappeared, she wore a sickly grin on her face while looking straight at Brooklyn.

“Are you sure that’s how she looked?” Aberdeen asked in a whispering voice again. “Because I see a different girl, Brook.”

Aberdeen happened to glance where Li was sitting and saw another girl with red hair and blue eyes in Chinese garb that was similar to Li’s kimono except that it was pink and had a flower on its back. She seemed to look at Li with fire in her eyes, in fact literally. Her arms slowly crept over Li as though she were getting ready to grasp his neck and wrangle him, but before her hands can grip his neck, Li fainted and fell down to the arena area. Hwang then called Ms. Brumfield for help who picked Li up and laid him on one of the seats. Aberdeen quickly looked back to where the girl in Chinese garb was before. This time she was accompanied by a girl that fit Brook’s description: plain white dress and long black hair. They seemed to be grinning towards Aberdeen knowing that she can see them. Aberdeen turned to walk towards them but before she could reach them, they vanished.

“Wait! Who are you guys?” Aberdeen called out, but it was no use. She wondered what their agenda was and why they seemed to have a strong desire to hurt the students. Aberdeen contemplated whether she should inform Ms. Brumfield about this, but decided not to, thinking that maybe Ms. Brumfield would think she was crazy. Then she realized Opal and the other students might have noticed Aberdeen’s strange behavior and decided to shrug it off as if nothing happened, keeping a façade of aloofness.

Opal's eyes darted over the matches, carefully controlling her emotions. Or, Ella was controlling her emotions because she didn't want Lila's opponent to suddenly gain 300 pounds. That would be cheating. So, she smiled gleefully when Lila wasn't impaled by the shard of ice and went on the offense. She wanted to cheer, but she was still almost killed and it might happen again, and she didn't want to be a distraction.

Ella, however, was busier. Lucy had made her way back over and reached into the caramel-filled book bag, causing the red creature to growl. She hadn't liked it before, but had been to frightened to do anything. However, when an outstretched hand offered her own candies to her, she gave a confused look before snatching them up and crawling back down to the bag, where she could eat them without getting the caramel on Opal's face and in her hair. Plus the book bag was already slightly covered in the stuff from earlier, but Opal didn't know that and by the time she did Ella hoped she would be far away. She knew she would never hurt her because she loved her, but she really didn't like the mess and Ella would be the one to have to clean it up and it was very difficult to clean a book bag with only paws.

Ella watched intently while Lucy talked, and occasionally moved to take a fraction of the candy,that was currently sitting on the back of the bag, in her fangs and chewed on it. When she got done with most of it (she wouldn't eat the bottom part that was touching the bag) she responded. "Thank you for the candy, even though it was already mine to eat to start with. I guess we can be friends. Though you are a little creepy" the demon smiled. "I'll think of it like an adventure!" she declared brightly before jumping back up onto Opal's pink head.

Aberdeen took a quick look around her to make sure no one suspected anything strange about her. It seemed that Connor and Jaxon were carrying Li to the nurse’s office and that Melody and Kieran were trailing right behind them. Opal seemed to be watching intently at the matches and Ella and Lucy were having their own conversation, so it seems like no one noticed. “Thank goodness,” Aberdeen thought. She didn’t want to look suspicious in front of her classmates. For now, she decided to keep the situation with the ghosts a secret and pay attention to the matches.

Looking over at Lila’s match, Aberdeen made a sigh of relief that Lila had escape the sharp ice shard’s path, but she turned her head sideways after Lila tripped over her feet and landed on her buttocks. Lila’s eyes seemed to be wide open in shock and she called out to her opponent, “Hey, careful with that you could have actually killed me yah know!” with fluffy cheeks. Even though she just stated that her opponent could have potentially ended her life, Lila’s face depicted a smile. “What a nice smile she has,” Aberdeen thought. She wished she could smile a lot more like her rather than maintain such a serious or cold complexion, but she felt uncomfortable letting herself go like that. Lila then stood up from the ground, shrugged off some dirt that was on her skirt, and then stepped back with her arm pulled out as though she was getting ready to pitch at the next batter. “Batter up!” Aberdeen thought in her head. She knew she could be more lax, sarcastic, and open, but she chose not to, instead maintaining a serious face as she intently watched Lila’s next move. With a bright smile, Lila launched a ball of light towards Alexis and following up with larger balls of light.

Although she wanted to see the outcome, Aberdeen hated light so she turned to look at the next group of people that were going to match. It seemed that it was Venice’s and Giselle’s match. She overheard a couple of names that Ms. Brumfield mentioned, but never turned to see how the opponents looked. A girl with medium bright flame red hair stepped into the arena accompanied by a red fox which leaped forward in front of her. “Aren’t the demons supposed to be sitting down not participating?” Aberdeen thought. Afterwards, a familiar green haired young man stepped into the arena adjusting his sleeves. After he introduced himself as “Venice Roko Mikaelo,” he tipped his hat, bowed, tossed his hat over to the side, and fixed his jacket. “Ah, so that’s his name,” Aberdeen thought, remembering him as the guy that she tried to have her first conversation with. Thinking about what had transpired earlier, Aberdeen struggled to keep herself visible, clenching her fists together. “I can’t believe I made a fool of myself in front of this gentleman! Ugghh I hope he doesn’t see me.” After realizing that she was clenching her fists for too long, she looked back down at her hands and noticed she couldn’t see herself anymore. “Not this again…” Aberdeen grumbled, struggling to become visible again.

Meanwhile, Lucy was enjoying the opportunity of talking to Ella. Although Ella growled and hesitated at first, she quickly snatched up the offered treats and crawled back down in the bag. After chewing on most of the candy that was stuffed inside the bag, Ella responded, “Thank you for the candy, even though it was already mine to eat to start with. I guess we can be friends, though you are a little creepy. I’ll think of it like an adventure!”

“None taken. It’s an honest response to my appearance. Heh, speaking of adventures, would you like to know how I got my latest mask? It’s a riveting story, though for me not and the poor soul who had to lose his mask.” Luciana then thought for a moment to the events of the past looking upwards. “Actually, I think I may have taken his face too. I’m sure I had Aberdeen pack it for my pillowcase, at least she better have.”

After Ms. Brumfield had given Aberdeen the okay on being able to battle, Aberdeen took a deep breath and said to herself “This is it!” Before, Aberdeen had wanted to pulverize Opal and show off that she was more than capable of beating her to impress Lila, however, now that she had become acquainted with Opal, Aberdeen’s feelings towards the battle had changed. She would not back down, that she was certain of, but she would not let some malice taint the battle anymore. The match would only be for its purpose of displaying each other’s powers and that is all. If Opal had not seen Aberdeen turn invisible already, she would find out her powers here. Aberdeen didn’t know how she could use her ability to see ghosts, or land an attack on Opal without any offensive magic, but Ms. Brumfield had said that weaponry was allowed so long as it was sheathed. Aberdeen luckily had a fighting knife she could use, but she would make sure not to harm Opal much.

Aberdeen thought about all of this before the match with Opal on the opposite end of the arena, eyes focused on her. Although Aberdeen didn’t want to utter even a slight whisper, she couldn’t help but let out a small, “Good luck” escape from her lips.
All of a sudden, Aberdeen felt an immense amount of pressure pushing down on her entire body that forced her to crouch to the ground. She struggled to get up but the pressure on her was too massive as though a massive elephant- no five elephants- had sat on her back.

”Opal must be doing this,” Aberdeen thought as her weight began to increase. Her entire body was now flat on the floor because she couldn’t hold herself up in a kneeling position anymore. ”All I can do is turn invisible, so what am I supposed to do?” Aberdeen asked herself.

Suddenly an idea popped in her head. She turned invisible and remained calm and quiet, practicing her silent breathing techniques and staying completely still. It worked, because Opal suddenly had a confused look on her face and the weight had released its force on her. Slowly, Aberdeen got back up on her feet and tried to quietly sneak up on Opal to knock her out slightly with the sheathed fighter knife, but unfortunately one of the floor boards was a bit loose and let out a slight squeak. Opal turned towards the direction of the noise and suddenly some floor boards were loosened and lifted up to the air. After Aberdeen got close enough, Opal tipped floor boards towards the sound of the noise which hit Aberdeen and knocked her backwards towards the ground, turning her visible again.

Aberdeen wiped some dirt that got on her face, stood up again, and turned invisible, this time running towards Opal to try and land a strike on her once more. A few more boards were raised up in preparation to make one of them hit Aberdeen if she got too close. At times Opal was on key where Aberdeen was and Aberdeen barely dodged them, and at other times the boards grazed a bit on Aberdeen giving her some splinters on her arms and legs. However, this was not without some energy depletion as Opal seemed to be concentrating so much on just keeping the floorboards high up to be able to tip them over on Aberdeen. Aberdeen finally reached the end of the arena where Opal was stationed and she lunged her sheathed knife for an attack, but then Opal, who probably heard Aberdeen grunt a bit upon thrusting her arm, shielded herself with the floorboards. Aberdeen’s shielded knife only managed to pound on the floorboards and make a loud THUMP noise.

”Darn it! Heh, you’re good Opal.” Aberdeen thought to herself, even though she wanted to say it to Opal. ”However, I’m not giving up!” Aberdeen decided, determined to try until the very end.

Aberdeen decided to back up a bit and give some space so that Opal can let down those floorboards. Aberdeen had to be quick on her toes to reach Opal from behind to strike in case Opal didn't let her guard down. After finally reaching a short distance away from Opal, Aberdeen prepared to slip behind Opal to strike.

Opal seemed to realize then that Aberdeen was behind and she looked drained from trying to exert so much force on lifting up the floorboards, so she decided to make a run for it with the floorboards now down. However Opal had stopped completely in her tracks with a dazed look on her face. Her body shivered and she held herself as though she was cold. In everyone’s eyes, that must have been what they have witnessed from the stands, at least those who had paid attention to the fight. However, in Aberdeen’s eyes, Opal wasn't alone. The two ghost girls were back and they were standing where Opal was with sinister looks on their faces. The girl with the long black hair and white dress grabbed Opal by the neck and seemed to make squeezing gestures while the red head with the Chinese garments put her hold on Opal’s stomach. Aberdeen watched in horror as Opal was gasping for air and struggling to breathe. The two girls then looked towards the audience-“wait could the audience see them?” Aberdeen asked herself and drew her attention towards the crowd. It seemed that the audience looked on at horror towards Opal, but she couldn't tell whether they can actually see the ghosts. One person did look somewhat more wide eyed and shocked though and that was Ms. Brumfield.

”Ms. Brumfield, you’ll pay for what you've done, and you'll give your payment with your students' lives!” the girl clad in white shouted towards Ms. Brumfield. Aberdeen wondered what Ms. Brumfield had done to make this girl come back as a ghost to take out her revenge, but then she snapped back to reality when Opal let out a large gasp for breath. Opal had started turning blue when Aberdeen rushed to her side with her eyes dead set on the girl in the white dress that didn’t match her purity. Aberdeen took out her sheathed knife and aimed it towards the girl in white, knowing she couldn’t really damage her but to at least make her vanish. ”GET AWAY FROM HER!!!” Aberdeen shouted in rage and tried to stab at the malicious ghost. Both ghosts vanished but Aberdeen had used too much force in her thrust. Her free hand that had planned to grab the other ghost ended up pushing Opal to the ground and the sheathed knife in the other hand had pinned Opal down on her clothes barely away from her body. Opal seemed to be taken aback by the force but luckily her head wasn’t hit hard. She started breathing hard after the force on her was finally taken away.

Aberdeen looked at her combatant with worried eyes and asked her urgently, “Opal are you alright? Can you breathe?”
Aberdeen gazed where her knife had pinned Opal down and hoped that it meant the battle was over. She did not want Opal to keep fighting while she was in this condition. Aberdeen just stood over her friend in silence, fearing for Opal’s safety yet enraged by the ghost’s actions. The ghosts that Aberdeen knew didn’t take drastic measures like this even though they’ve been through hard times, so why were these two girls so vengeful? In her mind, Aberdeen was planning her own revenge against them and planning to search out for them…for Opal’s sake.

The first thing that went through Opal's mind when she realized she had lost was how did I let that happen?. If she was anything, she was competitive. Though, recounting what had just happened, maybe she shouldn't be surprised. It had all started off very well for Opal, with only a second between the start of the battle and Aberdeen's body being mushed to the ground, making her weigh a few hundred pounds more than she needed. That had really amused Opal, eliciting the thought 'Might as well go get on that treadmill now- it might take you a while to shed that off' from her. However, her opponent had other ideas and dissipated into the air as far as Opal could tell- she just wasn't there anymore. In hindsight, Opal could have just kept the force of gravity on that spot the same crushing weight but she hadn't, at the time. She had been confused and let up.

The pink-haired child hadn't really been careful about all of this so far, and now that she had exhausted the one thing she was used to doing, she hadn't really had any idea what to do anymore. So, she had gone into panic, naturally, when she heard a noise. Aberdeen had still been invisible, so Opal did the only thing she could at the time- or at least the first thing that had come to mind- put up a shield. So, Opal had very carefully softened the force of gravity on the center of a few of the floorboards, making them creak and push up until they were floating. It was very hard to do and very draining- she had to make sure the force of gravity was still normal on the area underneath the board and on the nails and that the center was so light it pushed up. However, floating wasn't easy and she had to constantly change from drop the force to add force, and even on 20 boards it brought sweat to her brow.

After a while, she had heard another noise and she very, very carefully pushed a little weight onto one side of a few floorboards, tipping them wildly. One of them hit it's mark and Aberdeen had become visible again. She quickly smiled and dropped some of the boards that were behind Opal, as they wouldn't be hitting anything with Aberdeen in front of her. That, however, had been short lived and the girl had turned invisible, again. Still, Opal knew some of the area the woman was and brought up more boards in that area. She had known that soon she would collapse, but she couldn't give up. There had been a grunt and Opal had brought up a board just in time to hear something thud into it.

After a few more seconds, Opal had decided that she couldn't possibly keep the boards up any longer, and she would just keel over if she had to, so she had quickly dropped them (all into their proper spots, because she couldn't just mess everything up). She had almost admitted defeat when she began to shiver wildly, and she was very cold. She had very quickly wrapped herself in her arms and slid them up and down, trying to warm herself. She had been quick to think that Aberdeen was doing it to seal the deal on her win, and she had tried her best to hold her hands up in defeat. Almost as suddenly, she couldn't breath at all. Aberdeen wouldn't do this was the only thought she could bring to her Oxygen deprived mind. Opal knew she wouldn't- after their conversation she was considered a friend in Opal's book. In any case, she still hadn't been able to breath. Her eyes had searched for Ella, and when they found her the creature was looking at her in horror, dashing up and down the bleachers. She looked like she wanted to help, but Opal had quickly waved her hands. She hadn't wanted to risk her best friend's life, either.

It was almost certain she would die, but that really hadn't stopped her from gasping wildly. Her brain was muddled at this point and honestly she could almost feel her face turn an ugly shade of blue. She had almost been unconscious and was swimming through her mind when she had heard a muddled "Get away from her!" and some of the pressure being lifted from her neck. When she was then pushed to the ground and almost impaled by a knife, it was almost a relief. Well, the impaling part hadn't been, but the return of oxygen to her body had. She was taking very deep breaths when she heard a voice say “Opal are you alright? Can you breathe?”. She couldn't quite speak (and she was still on the verge of either throwing up or passing out), so she made a very weak thumbs-up before she had groaned and closed her eyes.

That's more or less where she was now, with her eyes clamped shut, her side still restricted by a knife, and her breaths coming out in pants. Also, she was still waiting for her belly to either settle down or loose it's store of food. That, in turn, made her groan in frustration and pain every few seconds. Slowly, she placed her hands over the knife at her side and weakly tried to pull up. That was in no way going to happen, but she still figured it might alert someone to the fact that she needed it out of her shirt. Oh, and this was my good first-day-of school shirt too she thought, and that caused her lips to form into a weak smile. Followed by a loud groan and a lurch of her stomach that made her feel like she may be loosing the contents of her belly in any second. Ella had come up to her by this point too, and was glaring daggers at Aberdeen. "How could you do this to her! You could have just pinned her down, you know! Now she's going to be sick and-and... oh dear" the red creature had whimpered out when Opal let out another moan. She alternated between stroking Opal's hair and looking at Aberdeen like she was about to paw her eyes out. Opal had very carefully patted the creature back and whispered in a very horse voice "I don't really think she did it, Ell. Leave her be". In fact, Opal knew she hadn't done it because why would Aberdeen scream "Get away from her" if she was the one doing it? It really didn't matter to Opal's body who had done it though, because it decided at that moment to push a wave of nausea onto her and make her suddenly very tired.

When Opal lifted her arm weakly to make a thumbs-up, Aberdeen sighed in relief. At least Opal could still understand her and could breathe. Opal lay there with her eyes closed, probably in pain because she groaned every so often with her face contorted as she did. Aberdeen just stood over her friend (yes, she made a friend and her name is Opal) not knowing what she should do. She started easing her hand over to Opal’s forehead so that she could pet her head and try to relax Opal, but then she felt Opal’s hands placed over the knife trying to pick it up. It was then that Aberdeen realized that she still had the knife pinned down to her side preventing her mobility. Aberdeen promptly lifted the knife out of her skirt and quickly apologized with a, “Sorry!” She put back the knife in her pocket when an enraged Ella came and glared in fury towards Aberdeen.

“How could you do this to her! You could have just pinned her down, you know! Now she’s going to be sick and-and….oh dear!”

It was then that Opal let out another moan. Ella then came to Opal’s side to stroke her hair while also making sure to give Aberdeen the evil eye every so often. Opal then patted her best friend and whispered with a hoarse voice, “I don’t really think she did it Ell, Leave her be.” Aberdeen was sort of comforted that Opal had believed her, but she couldn’t even defend herself despite knowing it wasn’t her fault. She was still a bit shaken up by what she had witnessed; even Opal didn’t fully understand what was going on to her. The sight of the ghosts strangling Opal was edged in Aberdeen’s mind, sending chills down her spine. Aberdeen was too shocked by what happened that she could only remain speechless beside her friend.

Luciana then came to Aberdeen’s side, worried about both Opal and Aberdeen. She is probably the only other one that witnessed what was truly happening to Opal.

“Aberdeen, we should tell Opal and Ella what really happened,” Luciana suggested with her mind.

“Huh???” Aberdeen said out loud, not realizing Luciana had come onto the arena. “Oh um…no Lucy. Let’s just keep this between us,” Aberdeen switched to thoughts.

“But why? Ella is already accusing you! The others might think you were trying to kill Opal!”

“LUCY!!!” Aberdeen shouted out loud, glaring at her Magni demon. Aberdeen then shook her head realizing what she was doing. “Sorry Lucy, but I just don’t want to talk about this. I don’t want to talk about these ghosts or any ghosts again okay? Not until I can think of something.”

“Abby, we’re in speech thought you can tell me. You’re scared aren’t you?”

Aberdeen started mumbling, “I…I…” before running off away from the arena and out into an empty hallway. She then found a secluded corner and sat up with her knees to her face. Aberdeen covered her face with her hands and let out the tears she had been holding back. Lucy followed her and tried to comfort her with one of her shadowy arms to which Aberdeen responded in a whisper, ”Yes Lucy…I’m scared. I’ve always made fun of death and had relished in the thought of dying, but seeing Opal getting suffocated by those girls made me realize how scary death really is! Lucy…I don’t know what to do…Help me…”

All Lucy could do at the moment was sit beside her Magni and best friend, enclosing her in her shadowy shroud to try and reassure her that everything will be alright. Brooklyn appeared next to Lucy but Lucy gave her a nod no, knowing that even though Brooklyn was one of the good ghosts, Aberdeen did not want to deal with any of them right now until she got a hold of herself. After a few more minutes of drowning in tears, Aberdeen wiped her face knowing she had to go back. She couldn’t face Opal anymore so she just went back to the stands as though nothing had happened and sat in the most remote corner away from everyone, hoping to conceal her puffy cried up face.

GM Post


It’s been about a week and a half since the students started school at Liuena Academy. Ms.Brumfield has informed her class of a field trip to the Human City outside the barrier. It’ll be the first time going to the human city since starting their new life at Liuena Academy. It’s a Sunday afternoon and a hour after walking about the city in groups four or five (two groups)

One lead by Ms. Brumfield and the other lead by Kirie Askumoto.
Ms.Brumfields Group:
Opal, Aberdeen, Kieran, Lila
Kirie's Group:
Melody, Connor, Jaxon, Jayson

No switching is permitted what’s so ever. the reason Kirie is group leader is simple, he is one of the few students in Ms. Brumfields class that actually follows her directions as has been a honored student since he started coming to the Academy(his grandmother knows the headmaster) also because she trusts Kiries ability to take care of himself and those around him. All demons are to be kept under strict surveillance. Nor is anyone allowed to use their abilities in the slightest way even if it’s to protect themselves from a human attack. There are exceptions i.e. possible deaths but other than that stay out of trouble. Both groups are allowed to go their separate ways but must stay within the portal to the Academy.

Like before an hour after walking around the City, Seagus begins his attack on the city and the only people with the chance of stopping him are the Magni who are in the city on a field trip to learn how to integrate with regular people without relying on their abilities to help them. the Academy won’t be able to enter the city for another hour after the attacks start due to the magic in the city is being drained by Seagus but not only that but the barrier that hides the Academy is getting weaker and weaker. If the Academy isn’t careful they could possible create a hole in the barrier allowing the city to see them. And for the creature to enter the Academy grounds. While all this is happening Li is stuck at the academy under the pretense of being sick with stomach aches and such. He is searching for whatever he can find to pit against the Academy which is the creature in the basement that was sealed by the previous Headmaster a few decades ago.

During this time a group of sewer workers entered the sewer system. But they are not the only ones below in the tunnels. The workers in the sewers were aghast. A giant black crystal-like material was the cause of the blockage the mayor was so worried about? "C'mon, boys get your picks!" The three workers started picking away at the crystal when they're pickaxes broke. The crystal hadn't even been scratched. Then a noise emanated from the crystal. It was like the roar of a lion, but three octaves lower than what it should be. The workers then saw a red eye looking at them. Three tendrils of darkness soon skewered them and tossed them aside as the thing made its way outside. The last surviving worker contacted police and national guard. There was a monster in the city. As it rampaged Maledict searched for sources of magical and non-magical energy to feed off from, to restore its low energy levels. And nothing was going to get in it's way in keeping itself from harm.

Ms.Brumfield

"Miss Brumfield. The boy fainted because of magic. It's surely magic. And strangely, his hands are covered in ice. Maybe you should do something about him" that thought ran through her mind over and over. What the nurse had told her worried her, soon after the nurse had told her that Ms. Brumfield went straight to the Headmasters office. The two had kept this between themselves and the Headmaster told her to keep an eye on him. Now that that they gone on the field trip Li had called in sick, and she wondered why as he was perfectly fine the day before.

Shaking her head, Ms. Brumfield focused on the task at hand and that was to keep an eye on her students, which consisted of three girls one who had the habit of turning invisible under stress or high strung emotions and then the troublemaker, Kieran. Which reminded her how is Kirie handling the other two, considering they were Connor and Melody. I hope my decision in letting Kirie lead them was the right choice. Sighing Ms.Brumfield searched the store they were in wondering what her students were buying.

That’s when a deep purring voice entered her head, my dear why are you worrying over such nuisances just leave them there and let them fend for themselvesAmon shut up, you know I can’t do that. It’s my job to teach them and as their teacher I have an obligation to protect them indeed it is my dear, but you already failed that didn’t you all those years ago. at his words Ms.Brumfield stopped dead in her tracks and glared at her hands, Amon speak of that again and I will hurt you and you know I will. She gritted her teeth in frustration and Amon stopped pestering her and left her mind with dark chuckles.

Opal looked over the various nick-knacks in the shop with wonder. Ella was stuffed into the spacious lime green-and-pink flowered book bag on the small girls back. It might be odd for a red panda to be around a human city where red pandas were in very short supply. That, however, didn't stop the creature from looking out through the unzipped portion and whispering to Opal. "Ohhh! I smell candy, over there! Caramel and Lollipops!" Ella whispered, practically sticking her face all the way through the hole. "Calm down, I'm looking at this" Opal said, her tongue sticking out as she twisted and turned the multicolored blocks of the Rubix cube in her hands. After a few seconds, she sighed and placed the cube back in it's place on the white-painted wooden shelf she got it from. "That's hard" she commented to herself and looked down at her dress. It was her favorite- light green sleeves that ended in ruffles a few inches above her elbow, small pleats on the bottom of the dress at her thighs, and a square neckline. That, the muti-shaded pink squares that circled around the middle and arms, and the fact that it was all a beautiful shade of green made it her favorite. It offset her hair and made her look like spring, in her option. Plus it matched her book bag.

Opal kept wandering down the isles of the shop they had stopped in. Some small-but-well organized store she didn't want to bother with the name of. They had had none of these stores where she grew up- small town with even smaller options for shopping, so people weren't horribly concerned with organization and marketing, and miles and miles of normal. Her family had been slightly different- what with the powers and such- but still pretty normal. It really didn't matter though, because Opal was here, now, and she liked it in a city you didn't have to go miles and miles to get to a good coffee shop. Her eyes darted over the line of toys she was in and grabbed a boxed up Rubix cube- she really wanted to figure it out, and she could, if it was the last thing she did! Then she went in search of Lila or Aberdeen. Or the one guy in their group- she didn't know him, but she wanted to, because he could possibility be a friend.

After a while of wandering, she decided she couldn't leave she shop but she couldn't find anyone, so she went back to the toy/candy section- it was practically a kid wonderland, and that was fine with Opal- and began perusing. Her mother had gone to the Academy and remembered the field trips and packed money for her accordingly- something Opal was very happy for because 'Look at all the cool things!' In any case, it wasn't long before Opal was pulled back into the candy section- with no complaint from the book bag- on the notion of free samples.

A few seconds- and a few caramel candy samples passed into the book bag discreetly- later, a very strict looking lady in a suit came sprinting by her, away from the door. "Where's the fire?" the asked quickly, though she wasn't really interested. There was candy to be eaten, after all! "So... something... air.... Ah!" was all she got out before running headlong in to the back of the store. "Hey! It says right there- workers only!" Opal yelled out, but she didn't stay on it for long, because suddenly there were more and more people piling at the windows and screaming. Opal knitted her eyebrows together in confusion and walked forward, suddenly wondering if there was a fire. "What's the matter?" she asked as soon as she got to the window, which she couldn't see out of for the taller people in front of her. When no one decided she was worth an answer, she huffed and elbowed her way through the crowd. She did not like the sight she saw in the window.

There was this.... thing. This really big, really scaring looking thing in the air, and the ground was littered with people. Hehe.. there just sleeping the part of her brain designed to keep her from going into a full scale freakout told her. The saner part was decidedly right, with Yea.... they're dead. Let's keep that from being us, okay? Opal couldn't help but scream and elbow her way back out, suddenly glad she was smaller than normal. What the crap is that?! her mind yelled out at her, and she shook her head. She didn't know, she needed a smarter-than-her person. Lila was her best friend, but she was a 'freakout buddy' which is always good to have, but not what she needed right now. She didn't know the guy, so that was out. She didn't want to go to the teacher, because that would seem childish. "Aberdeen!" she yelled out when she decided and sprinted to where she figured she might be- the book section. She had befriended her over the few days at the academy and it just seemed like a good place to start. "I don't think people will care if they see you now, Ell. Help me find Lucy and Abby" Opal whispered, and Ella nudged the zipper open and jumped onto the ground. "Abby!" Opal shrieked as she ran, with Ella right on her heels. As she ran, she thought over the choice to not go find the teacher. "Ella, go find Ms.Brumfield. Or Lila. Or the guy. Just another person in our group, preferably the teacher. We need to all get back into a group" Ella nodded and went off to find another member.

While Opal was having no luck at all finding anyone, Ella was better. She ran right into Ms.Brumfield. "Hey! Teacher lady!" Ella yelled as she pawed at her legs. "Have you seen what's going on out there?!" the red panda said as she sat down at her feet, her eyes searching the area for prying eyes every second. Didn't want to risk anyone seeing her.

Upon seeing Kirie approaching Jaxon sighed heavily and stretched as he started speaking to him.

“Hey Jaxon, come one we got to go there’s something in the city that’s wreaking havoc. We need to group together and find Ms. Brumfield so we can go back.”

"...Fine I'll go get them, but this is a favor I hope you pay me back for. Buy a rubber pad for your bed I don't like being shocked every once in a while, while I'm sleeping sparky alright?" Smiling weakly he rubbed his nose and continued, "Anyway jokes aside I'll see what I can find out about the rampage, also I'll find a way to get all of us together. Tell our group to meet at the central park, wait there and we'll meet up with you afterward alright?" Looking down to his collar he nodded slightly at Tama who purred slightly. "Alright Let's get this done buddy. We've got to prove to Brumfield that we can stay in this school alright?" That said Jaxon instantly warped to the top of the store and yelled down to Kirie.

"HEY! I'll find out what's going on but I'll stay out of sight so that I don't attract any attention from this 'monster', you guys head to the meeting place and start discussing a plan alright?!" Waving to his classmates he then started running and jumping from building to building.

After following the giant stream of people he looked ahead of what they were running from and saw a... what could only be described as complete pandemonium, From an entire building destroyed to the wreckage of a helicopter on fire with what looked to be the remains of people in positions of agony. "Ugh... that's morbid... Anyway I have to make sure whatever caused this doesn't see me..." Looking around towards anything in the immediate area he sat down and closed his eyes. "Open your senses..." After saying this he extended his usual 10 foot aura to about 30 and noticed something abnormal in it, almost as if it saw him. After shutting off his aura as quickly as possible he hid behind a pillar with his sight looking through a portal about 10 feet from what looked like a knight spawned from hell.

"W-What is that thing... It's so... small for a monster whatever I'll keep to the sidelines and hope this thing doesn't notice me tail it for a good while to figure out what it's doing..." After closing the portal he slowly kept his distance and watched it head in the direction of a power plant and then suddenly turn around. 'Shit... this isn't good....' Warping away onto ground level he kept looking at it from behind a dumpster and kept his eyes trained on it. "I wonder if it wasn't the fact that it was going there on it's own and didn't notice me or it was letting me follow it, nonetheless I have to find the others quickly."

After saying this he ran across the ground and headed to what seemed to be another shopping district with even more people running and screaming in terror only to find Ms. Brumfield trying to keep her students in check and raced up to her. "HEY BRUMFIELD! We got a major problem, as you can see a 'monster' is on the rampage I found it but we need to leave now!" Looking at the other students he basically pulled them over to both of them and continued, "I already set up a meeting place with Kirie and the others to go to Central park and figure out some kind of plan for taking it down after we get there I'll fill everyone in on what I saw but for now we need to head there now, time wasted is time that could be put to taking that thing down!"

After saying this he ran off only to have Tama pipe up on his sudden change. "Hey Jaxon I remember you never got this excited about anything any reason?" "Yeah it's called keeping myself and those around me alive, I don't feel like dying and I don’t feel like being held responsible if I’m the only one alive.” “But still you showed genuine concern for them, any reason why?” “Don’t get smart with me Tama this is serious we don’t have time for this, now let’s go!”

Aberdeen didn’t see why shopping in the “human city” was such a big deal. She’s lived here all her life. Unlike the others, she was born into a normal family and she lived in the normal human city with no knowledge of her own powers until Brooklyn passed away. The human city was where she resided until the incident where her grandmother Alma had revealed the secret about her powers and Liuena Academy. Coming here did make her feel somewhat at home and a bit nostalgic considering the store they were shopping in.

The store they were in was a familiar store to her, though not much of it was of her interest. She was more interesting in finding out more about ghosts and ghost hunting, and what better place to look than the bookstore? Aberdeen has always loved hitting the books in this store and found it to be the most enjoyable place besides the other creepy gothic store that was a nice source of furnishings for her room. However, she had a mission this time rather than just reading for pleasure. Ever since the incident with the two ghosts that tried to strangle Opal, Aberdeen had wanted to figure out how to protect her friend and how to search for these two ghosts. Before, she had been scared to death and didn’t want to deal with ghosts, but for some reason upon eyeing a book called, “The Ghost Hunter’s Guide” she had found the motivation inside to try and figure out a way to deal with these menaces.

Luciana traveled as Aberdeen’s shadow during the whole trip, however two – no wait three-things had caught the eyes from behind her mask. There was the candy section that they passed by that had caramel candy samples. “Ella would sure love these as I do. I hope Abby doesn’t mind me taking some for her…” Luciana thought in her mind while momentarily becoming invisible and taking a few when no one was looking. The second thing was a mask (picture )in a box in the oriental section that looked like a woman’s face with short black hair, bushy eyebrows, very thin eyes, a broad nose, and deep red lips. Lucy was about to take the mask for herself thinking she did need a new one when the third thing of interest had come. Many people started running amuck in the stores and an aura of uneasiness, tension, and death was what Lucy recognized from the people.
“Abby!” shrieked somebody from behind Aberdeen. She was a little surprised at first because it did not come from Luciana or Brooklyn, however when she turned around she found Opal who seemed to be panicked over the commotion. Behind Opal, Aberdeen couldn’t believe to see a multitude of ghosts behind her panicked and confused over their sudden deaths. She could hear them saying, “What happened to me??” “Why can’t anybody hear me??” “Mommy where are you??” That last one was a little boy now a ghost and now gone from the world of living. Aberdeen almost couldn’t bear to see this many ghosts in her vicinity and especially the child ghost, considering that there is something horrible going on that she doesn’t even know, however she tried to remain calm for her friend. This time, she was going to protect her.

“Opal!” Aberdeen yelled back hoping Opal had seen her. She didn’t realize that she subconsciously placed the unpaid book in her backpack. She ran towards Opal urging Lucy to follow as a shadow and then grabbed Opal’s hand. “Opal, I don’t know what’s going on, but we have to calm down and find the others.” Aberdeen saw Jaxon waving at them as he ran to get more people, and decided it was time to get out of there. ”Opal, you’re going to have to trust me on this one.” Aberdeen said before turning both her and Opal invisible and intangible (she had just learned how to do so a few days ago) to get out of the way of everyone and down to where Ms. Brumfield was with the others. Aberdeen could only hold that for so long she nearly reached time limit and passed out, but she decided to stay strong even though her stomach was feeling a bit weak right now from keeping both her and Opal invisible and intangible. ”Sorry for the rush Opal, but I wanted to get us out of there quickly,” Aberdeen apologized while panting heavily. She wasn’t really the most fit person and running fast while trying to keep her and her friend from bumping into everyone through her magic was very taxing on her energy. Jaxon had said there was a meeting place with Kirie and the others at Central Park for a plan to take down some “monster on a rampage,” and Aberdeen thought it would be a good idea to meet with the others and try to contribute something. She would have to rest for awhile for her to regain her energy, but nevertheless she wanted to participate in some way. It was odd to her that Central Park, her favorite park to play in as a child will now become a base of operations for the Liuena team to assemble and discuss battle tactics against a monster. How could she have known growing up that she would have magic and have to participate with a class filled with other Magni in taming a beast? Aberdeen did not want to go alone however so she asked Opal, “You coming?”

Kirie

"Anyway jokes aside I'll see what I can find out about the rampage; also I'll find a way to get all of us together. Tell our group to meet at the central park, wait there and we'll meet up with you afterward alright?"

Kirie was about to say something but by the time he opened his mouth Jaxon had teleported to the top of the store yelling down at him and the others. "HEY! I'll find out what's going on but I'll stay out of sight so that I don't attract any attention from this 'monster', you guys head to the meeting place and start discussing a plan alright?!"

idiot what if someone sees him. Then its trouble for all of us scowling Kirie could do nothing but let Jaxon do his thing.

Kirie went in search of Jayson only to find that she was nowhere to be found. where’d she go, dammit I told her not to wonder to far from the group, but no, no one listens to me because I’m the damn teacher’s pet . Kirie growled low angry at himself for letting her out of his sight and at Jayson herself for not listening to him. However he had more important things to worry about than just one girl, and it was to get Connor and Melody to their rendezvous point with Jaxon and Ms.Brumfield. He needn’t worry about Melody since she was happily talking to a shadow that no one could forget. Especially considering the form it took on, of a dragon and was doing that same dance as before.

Shaking his head Kirie couldn’t help but smile a bit the sight of a shadow dancing but took on a more serious look. ”Melody, Kieran we need to go pronto. Also has anyone seen Jayson I can’t find her or Connor at that. But we really need to go, I already double checked and I can’t find either of them. Let’s just hope that we might run across them when we get to Central Park.” and with that Kirie lead the two to Central park, unfortunately they hadn’t come across either Jayson or Connor, but Kirie thought he had seen the trouble maker but the panicked crowd had taken him from view and there wasn’t much else to do.




Ms. Brumfield
She was doing her best keeping the kids in check but it seemed Kieran had run off somewhere again no doubt to joke with Melody. I swear it’s like those two were destined to make my job a living hell.

"HEY BRUMFIELD! We got a major problem, as you can see a 'monster' is on the rampage I found it but we need to leave now! I already set up a meeting place with Kirie and the others to go to Central park and figure out some kind of plan for taking it down after we get there I'll fill everyone in on what I saw but for now we need to head there now, time wasted is time that could be put to taking that thing down!"

She was surprised at Jaxon’s findings but even more so that the fact that Kirie must have let him go dawned on her. This made her a bit irritable considering Jaxon could have gotten hurt because of the boy’s decision. But once more before anyone could get a word with Jaxon he was already gone. Sparks flew off her body but they were soon doused with something more important at the moment; concern for the wellbeing of her students. Making sure everyone was with her Ms. Brumfield left the store in a hurry, leading everyone to Central Park to discuss things further.

She didn’t like the fact that Jaxon seemed to be intent on stopping this creature, it was really up to the Liuena Academy‘s Higher Counsel to do something about it. But then it dawned on her, the portal they had gone through earlier, the one she had Amon keep a look out for so no human accidentally stepped through if they had a bit of magic in them. my dear the portal has closed, it isn’t responding to anything I throw at it or the simple commands to open it. Ms. Brumfield frowned in thought it must be because of the creature, it’s heading towards where there is energy so the barrier must have closed off to keep it from reaching the academy.Finally reaching their rendezvous point Ms. Brumfield was glad to see that Kirie and his group was their waiting for them by a large oak tree. However her smile dropped at the fact that two of her students seemed to be missing. “Kirie where’s Jayson and Connor? Weren’t they with you?” concern heavy in her voice.

”I don’t know, I told them to stay in the store but I guess all the chaos got to them and they tried to find us only to get swept away by the crowd. I’m sorry Ms. Brumfield for losing them, it’s my fault but we have to figure out what the hell that thing is. And make sure Jayson and Connor are alright.” Kirie looked upset about losing them but now wasn’t the time to be moping about ones mistakes. “Alright Kirie, I know it wasn’t your fault but we just have one more person to show up and that’s Jaxon. He went to scout out what was going on but I do not like the way things are, it seems we’re not at the leisure of having the Higher Counsel to deal with this. The barrier has gone on lock down because of the creature so we’re stuck here either way.” Sighing Ms. Brumfield rubbed the bridge of her nose, Amon please if you could find my students as well as check up on the whereabouts of that creature. And if you must attack it then do so but do it with a just cause and not out of your own pleasure she spoke harshly to her demon within their link. Ms. Brumfield didn’t get an answer but that was fine with her as long as she didn’t get lip from him.

Turning back to the students Ms. Brumfield folded her arms looking over her students. “so tell me does anyone have an idea as to what you would like to do at this point?”

Aberdeen ran after Opal, though she staggered a bit here and there from being drained for what she did earlier. She hoped to rest a bit in Central Park before thinking of other battle tactics, though she wanted to keep her weakness a secret so that she may be able to participate in the battle. To be weak in a time of need was not what she wanted, especially when it concerned the safety of others. Aberdeen took a seat near Opal who was hugging Ella tightly. Luciana sat down on Aberdeen’s other side and in her mind asked, “Abby are you sure you’re okay? You used a lot of energy, you should rest awhile.” Aberdeen understood her friend’s concern, so she tried reassuring her by replying in thought, “Lucy don’t worry I’m resting right now. We won’t be able to fight until we formulate a plan of attack. I’ll only fight when my participation is necessary alright?”

Just then, Opal had given Ms. Brumfield a suggestion, “I’m not sure, Ms. Brumfield, but if I could get close enough, I could either make it fall or at least slow it down for a little while. I’m not positive though, I’ve never tried using my powers on such big scale.” Opal then followed with a suggestion on what Ella can do to help with the situation. Aberdeen was really taken by what Opal had suggested and was worried that her friend would get hurt either from the monster or from mere exhaustion, yet she admired how Opal had decided to speak up and offer her help despite not being sure of what the results would be. It was time to take a stand. Aberdeen wasn’t sure what she can contribute, but she decided to say what was on her mind.

“Ms. Brumfield, I have some ideas in my head. I can maybe help Opal in this. I don’t have any offensive magic right now, but I can possibly be the distraction. I can turn invisible and then run to another place and reappear as though I teleported or something so that I can confuse the monster into following me. When the monster is in an ideal position, Opal can use her powers to either make it fall or slow down a bit. That is when the other Magni can safely attack from behind with any of their magic. If there’s any Magni that can somehow put it so sleep, Lucy can also use her dream eater and nightmare abilities. Should we perhaps split into two groups? Some Magni can help me confuse the monster to a more secure place where not a lot of people will be around. Then some other Magni can attack the monster first with their abilities after the monster is lured into the right area. Does that work? I’m not sure of everyone’s abilities so it’s hard for me to factor in what everyone can do but I just wanted to try and think of some strategy.”

Aberdeen then took a deep breath and realized that, not only is this the first time she talked to the teacher since coming to the Academy, but also this is the first time she has spoken more than one sentence in front of a group of people. Desperate times call for desperate measure they say, and this was definitely a time to let go of any inhibitions of speaking since the group needed suggestions…and fast.

After Aberdeen arrived and discussed her plan Jaxon shook his head slowly. "That isn't going to work, more than naught you'll attract it right to you. That thing is a magical entity and I'm guessing feeds off magic from what I gathered from my short recon mission I did, moreover it would see your presence. When I used my magic it 'saw' me and I got out of sight, not only that it seemed to have led me to an area as if to taunt and goad me into attacking it. So that said your invisibility won't confuse it, it would just attract attention to yourself." Sighing aloud he looked to Ms. Brumfield, "Before you kill me I had a plan on how to track it and I succeeded, only thing is that it didn't follow. Moreover the thing was like a knight in both appearance and movement. That said we should expect either short ranged attacks or long ranged if it fires attacks from the sword. Also from the movements I also saw that it had full mobility in the air, with Opal's help we can pull it through one of my portals as it isn't a type of magic just a gate I set up. With that we should be able to force it to the ground if I center the entry way of it to face what he would think is the ground and have it fly right into it. Also with Aberdeen's abilities I can have her be in the background and use her invisibility as a magical beacon of sorts. With enough magic pumping out of her hopefully it will draw towards us."

After saying this Connor was sitting there at the edge of the park watching the military move towards the power plant and then have Kirie show up with Kieran and Melody. "CONNOR WHAT ARE YOU THINKING!!" After yelling this Kieran ran up to the dazed Connor and started speaking to him.

'Hmm? What's going on over there between those two?' Shaking his head he whistled loudly to get the newcomer's attention. "Alright everyone I need everyone's full attention and focus! If we don't have that we'll fall into disarray and we'll be defeated, but if we come up with a plan instead of just running in headlong we shall conquer the beast. From what I gathered it's a being of magic and thus needs energy to survive whether it be electricity from the power plant it's headed to or our magic, nonetheless if we can I can hope that we will be able to bring it down without any interference." Coughing quietly he turned to Kirie. "Nice of you to finally join us, it's funny how I told you first and everything." Looking around slowly he had a confused look on his face and under his breath looked around.

'Last I checked Kirie had Melody with him.... wonder where she went...'

"Anyways you're are also part of this so get over here and help plan, I may have one plan done but I want everyone's opinion on it. That said if you have any questions about the monster please ask and I'll answer them to the best of my ability"

Jayson had started off lightly sprinting throughout the crowd of loud bumrishing people but she gained more speed after hearing more f the chaos occuring. She wasn't too familiar with this city but she tried her best to figure out where it is she was going to go so she did what she's good at which is wing it and took off at a faster pace and soon found herself among the others she had gotten seperated with. She was panting lightly but listened intently on what was being said before she chose to speak. "Sorry I'm late but what if we just try to find a way to distract him long enough to take him down or stall him enough to where it'll be too late to make it to the power plant?". As of right now to say she was worried would be an understatement.

Jayson wasn't exactly sure about everything there foe was capapble of and for right now she had to help everyone in some way even if she was worried she;d have to ignore that for the time being and figure out what to do later so in a sense it was act now and worry later.

Ms.Brumfield
"I'm not sure, Ms.Brumfield, but if I could get close enough I could either make it fall or at least slow it down for a little while. I'm not positive though, I've never tried using my powers on such big scale" she said just barely loud enough for her to here. "And Ella could calm it down, maybe. It would take a while though, and there is a good chance it wouldn't work at all"

Ms. Brumfields attention focused on Opal for a moment and she could tell the girl was scared but she was glad she spoke up. Then Aberdeen spoke her part as well.

“Ms. Brumfield, I have some ideas in my head. I can maybe help Opal in this. I don’t have any offensive magic right now, but I can possibly be the distraction. I can turn invisible and then run to another place and reappear as though I teleported or something so that I can confuse the monster into following me.

I’m not sure of everyone’s abilities so it’s hard for me to factor in what everyone can do but I just wanted to try and think of some strategy.”

Ms. Brumfield smiled thinking for a moment well it’s our best shot opening her mouth to respond to the two girls it seemed Jaxon had better ideas seeing as he did encounter it himself not too long ago, with a few shakes of his head.

"That isn't going to work, more than naught you'll attract it right to you. That thing is a magical entity and I'm guessing feeds off magic from what I gathered from my short recon mission I did, moreover it would see your presence. When I used my magic it 'saw' me and I got out of sight, not only that it seemed to have led me to an area as if to taunt and goad me into attacking it. So that said your invisibility won't confuse it, it would just attract attention to yourself."

Also with Aberdeen's abilities I can have her be in the background and use her invisibility as a magical beacon of sorts. With enough magic pumping out of her hopefully it will draw towards us."

Ms. Brumfield stared at him somewhat shock, surprised by his sudden plan of action. And by the sounds of it he explained it pretty good and it seemed a whole lot better than the other girl’s idea. Since it was a combination of all of their ideas Ms. Brumfield understood that this would be easier and more thought out than the other twos plan of action. So with a sigh and a nod Ms. Brumfield agreed and was about to state so too, until a certain someone called out a name. A name she thought had been lost in all the chaos and turmoil.
"CONNOR WHAT ARE YOU THINKING!!"

Her head snapped towards the direction of the voice and saw Kieran running towards Connor, who seemed dazed. well what did you expect. It’s not every day you witness first hand a monster attack on the human city sighing again Ms. Brumfield looked back to her students and listened to what Jaxon said next suddenly taking charge of the whole situation. Something she didn’t like as he was the student and she was the teacher. to think a child such as him can suddenly command the rest of them into doing something, rather rude if I think so myself if I were in their shoes. But enough of that at least it got some of their attention.

However things only seemed to be getting worse by the second as Connor himself decided to take matters into his own hands and attacked the monster. It was a good fight and she felt proud of him for being able to change mid form into something that wasn’t a mammal for once. But then dread filled her body as everything moved as if in slow motion. The monster headed straight for Melody its sword arm lashed out to kill her and it hit its mark. Only it wasn’t Melody that took the blow but Connor; it went clean through his sternum and it slid out of his body as if the monster didn’t give a damn about who or what it had just killed.

Rushing over to them Kieran got to him first and his emotions burst at the seams and they were no longer containable. Before she reached them a blast of air erupted from Kieran’s body sending her back as his abilities went berserk, and did things a Magni at his age shouldn’t be able to do. is this him in a couple years? When he’s my age will he be this powerful when he grows up? was all that went through her head. Standing back up Ms. Brumfield watched helplessly as another one of her students died. It brought tears to her eyes and she fell to her knees. The all too familiar memories came crashing back to her along with all that guilt and other emotions in tenfold. All she could hear was a ringing noise in her ears as someone grabbed hold of her shoulder and shook her. but it didn’t work she was in a state of shock and it would take more than a few shakes of the shoulder to bring her out.

Not even Kierans voice asking for help brought her out of it only until a searing pain in her shoulder brought her back as she yelled out in pain. Brown eyes focusing once of the real world, Ms. Brumfield looked around her and realized Amon had been the one to bring her back. His red tails lashed out in irritation and what seemed to be anger. But it wasn’t directed at her but at the monster. ”are you done moping girl. It’s time for you to get you pretty little head back in the game and protect the ones still alive. Unless you plan on failing them as well.” he sneered. The woman glared at him and wiped away the tears from her eyes and looked at her shoulder and winced at the nasty burn she got “you couldn’t have been more gentle in bringing me back?” the only response she got was a dark chuckle.

Amon shook his whole body which suddenly grew brighter and slightly in size as well getting larger but it wasn’t very noticeable. He let out a deep growl from his chest and he looked to down at his Magni with a look of impatience in his red eyes. [/i]so tell me girl. How do you plan on telling the boy about his brother’s demon? I’ve never seen one who has lost its Magni manage to stay in this realm, normally their forced to return as their anchor (Magni) was lost. If he stays her too long you know what’ll happen correct?[/i] it seemed for the first time that Amon actually cared about the well-being of Connor’s demon. “Yeah I know but we’ll have to deal with that later right now we need to handle this fellow and end it. Right here, right now and I know exactly how we’ll do it.” With a determined look in her eyes, without realizing it Ms. Brumfield had begun to spark and she knelt besides Kieran a sad expression passed over her features. Placing a gentle hand on his shoulder Ms. Brumfield was about to comfort him when a certain someone decided to butt in not appreciating the fact that he was moping around like Ms. Brumdfield had been doing.

Kirie

He watched it all in silence. His throat tightened at the sight of that black blade going through his body. Connor why him of all people. that’s when he felt the electric spark at his back, crap Raime she saw the whole thing turning around Kirie came face to face with a rather large version of Raimei. Even if he she was only made of electricity he coud tell she was shaking in fear. Kirie . . . what’s going on . . . Kirie I don’t like this story I don’t like it

“Raimei its alright please stay calm. Okay please do it for me, I told you to stay away didn’t i?” yeah but Kirie you need to change this story I don’t think I can handle it if someone else doesn’t get their happy ending. Kirie frowned sadly at his demon he knew well enough her obsession with her stories. “Raimei don’t worry this will most definitely have a happy ending don’t worry.” Kirie wished he could hug her but he couldn’t otherwise he would be contradicting what he had told her. Sighing Kirie looked about wondering how the others were handling this and that’s when Kieran went berserk.

Kirie was pushed back by the sudden rise of magic raising an arm to protect his face. Raimei had disappeared again back to her dimension. Then it stopped and he breathed a sigh of relief and looked over at Kieran who seemed to be talking to the dead body of his brother. This struck a chord in Kirie, he too lost a person he cared for deeply but that was just part of the job of the shinobi. Walking over to Kieran he stood over him. “Get up Kieran. Stop moping about like coward, Connor did this to help us and protect us. Don’t let his actions go to waste so get your ass up and lets go kick that things ass” smiling Kirie offered his hand to Kieran in hopes his words didn’t affect him negatively. However the moment was ruined when the monster made use of Connors life and this time it spoke sending chills down both his and Ms. Brumfield spines.

"So...this is what it feels like to kill a Magni. I've never had the chance to do such a thing. Truly it has opened up my eyes to the possibilities." With that, he punched the ground, causing a large fissure to appear. "I'm almost as powerful as when I was first born! Oh, to have that power once more is my goal, my one objective for this world. And, I'll start with you!" thankfully he was stopped by the humans attempt at stopping him but they were soon blown away by what he called the “Apocalypse Beam”. Sparks came off both teacher and student as they sparked in anger.

[u[Ms. Brumfield[/u]

That’s when Amon butted in snarling at them but Ms. Brumfeild was sure it was just for show. [color=red] “I would think now is as good time as any to kill the damn thing. And get up boy there’s no use in moping for that which you lost. It’s a tragic thing indeed but unless you wish to join him then I say get off your sorry arse and help those which your brother entrusted you to protect.”
glaring at Kieran Amon received an equally scary glare from his Magni. Who did not appreciate the way her student. Ms. Brumfield stood up and cleared her throat pushing all that emotion aside though she couldn’t stop sparking at the moment and neither could Kirie.

And so Ms. Brumfield took control of the situation, or at least she tried to. “Right let us follow the plan Jaxon has so graciously given us. It’s our best chance of success. So let’s get this plan underway.” And with that Ms. Brumfield turned to Aberdeen “Aberdeen you’ll be the bait of sorts but don’t worry Amon will make sure it doesn’t get too close to you and the same goes for you Opal. Kirie I want you to accompany Aberdeen as well, with your abilities he’ll want the both of you as his next meal. And that’s something we cannot have so I trust that you and Amon can protect each other.” Nodding to make sure they understood. Then she turned to others. “Opal, just do as you had suggested before the same goes to you Jaxon. The both of you need to work together to get this done. Kieran, Melody and Jayson I need you three to keep these two safe is that understood.” Ms. Brumfield looked at all of them and hoped she wouldn’t lose any more of their young faces to this monstrosity.

After thinking about how cool it would be to fight the bad guy, Aberdeen suggested a plan as well that had something to do with distracting the monster so that Opal can use her magic. Then other Magni could attack from behind—

“That isn’t going to work, more than naught you’ll attract it right to you. That thing is a magical entity and I’m guessing feeds off magic from what I gathered from my short recon mission I did, moreover it would see your presence.”

That was what Jaxon said before explaining his own plan which involved Opal pulling the monster through his own portals and Aberdeen attracting it towards her with her invisibility. Opal didn’t care which plan of attack they would use, as long as they could defeat this thing and save the town. Her enthusiasm didn’t last however as she heard a loud outcry from all the chaos around her shouting, “CONNOR WHAT ARE YOU THINKING!!”

It all happened so fast. Connor heroically fought with the monster changing into various animals as he did so. Opal watched in awe as it seemed he was getting the upper hand against it, however her amazement quickly turned into horror as the monster aimed for Melody but lashed its sword through Connor’s body. Ella had started shaking at the sight, so Opal held Ella in her arms as she tried to watch on trembling. Kieran had rushed over and went berserk as lots of magic energy had pushed her and Ella backward. Opal made sure to hold on to Ella closely without falling backwards. After spilling out massive amounts of energy, Kieran went over to Connor’s body and wept over his brother. Kirie went over and shouted, “Get up Kieran. Stop moping about like coward, Connor did this to help us and protect us. Don’t let his actions go to waste so get your ass up and lets go kick that things ass” however Kieran punched Kirie’s face with shadow electricity.

And then suddenly something happened that Opal didn’t expect. The monster actually spoke yelling, “So…this is what it feels like to kill a Magni. I’ve never had the chance to do such a thing. Truly it has opened up my eyes to the possibilities.”
Opal couldn’t help but let out the tears inside of her and dug her head into Ella’s fur. What had first seemed like one of those heroic fantasies she had seen on television where the bad guys would lose and the good guys win had turned into a nightmare and tragedy. “How could it have gotten to this?” were Opal’s confused thoughts. Then Ms. Brumfield started taking charge and reminded her that she had a mission to stop this and she would perform her duty for the sake of Connor. She was worried that Aberdeen would be the bait, but Ms. Brumfield reassured her that Kirie and Amon would help her. “Opal, just do as you had suggested before the same goes to you Jaxon. The both of you need to work together to get this done.” With her instructions, Opal decided to head with Jaxon to implement the plan, but before that she wanted to see Aberdeen. Opal wiped away her tears and approached Aberdeen, grabbing both of her hands with her own and said in a determined smile, “Let’s do this. Be careful, okay?” And with that, Opal had left off with Jaxon asking him, “So how should we do this?”

”That isn’t going to work, more than naught you’ll attract it right to you. That thing is a magical entity and I'm guessing feeds off magic from what I gathered from my short recon mission I did, moreover it would see your presence. When I used my magic it 'saw' me and I got out of sight, not only that it seemed to have led me to an area as if to taunt and goad me into attacking it. So that said your invisibility won't confuse it, it would just attract attention to yourself.”

“Dammit...If only I knew that,” Aberdeen thought disappointed that Jaxon had seen the flaw in her plan. She would’ve punched herself and bruised herself a bit but she knew she had to maintain her energy and not waste it on herself. Jaxon had suggested a new course of action based on his observations of the creature of doom and suggested that he could create a portal through which it could go through with Opal’s gravity powers. Aberdeen would then become a magical beacon which would attract the monster toward them so that the plan could work. Aberdeen checked her condition. Her energy levels seem to have come back so that she can have enough to draw the monster towards her, though she felt nervous seeing as if the plan doesn’t work it’s going to be a suicide mission. Not that she’d mind...right?

”CONNOR WHAT ARE YOU THINKING!!” suddenly interrupted Aberdeen’s thoughts. Afterwards, things took a turn for the worse. Connor at first walked toward the monster’s attack in a daze and then suddenly a battle ensued between them. Aberdeen was shocked by Connor’s display of magic that he did not reveal before. He was changing his human form into various animal forms such as an Orca and a bat. Suddenly, the monster tried to head towards Melody and then to Aberdeen it was as though time slowed and the past wanted to reach its arms out to Aberdeen.

—FLASH—

3 years ago

“Brook! That car is heading towards us!” Aberdeen yelled as a black minivan swerved side to side and seemed to be heading towards the passenger side of the car where Aberdeen was seated.
”AAaaahhhh Brooklyn!!”
—END FLASH—

Instead of Melody being impaled by the sword of the monster it was Connor that took her place. After talking to Kieran and Melody, Connor closed his eyes and breathed his last with a smile on his face.
—FLASH—

Aberdeen braced herself for the impact but just before the collision, Brooklyn swerved to the right and all Aberdeen remembered was a large BAANNGG!!! After coming to, Aberdeen felt pain from some of her injuries and cringed. She then looked at Brooklyn slumped over in the driver’s seat and upon taking a closer look saw that she had wide gashes over her body and large amounts of blood pooling in the car.
—END FLASH—

After witnessing his brother’s death, Kieran started sparking with black electricity and screaming in anger, sadness, and immense pain of loss. Aberdeen was blown back by the force that Kieran had created and tried to maintain her balance as she saw the flashbacks once more.
—FLASH—

“Brook...wake up! Brook...please don’t leave me, I still need you! Brook?” Aberdeen shook her sister a little bit trying to get her to open her eyes, but it was no use. Brook was no longer there. Tears rushed out of Aberdeen’s violet eyes before she let out a piercing scream of sorrow and anguish, ”BROOOOKLYYYNNNN!!!!!! NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!”

—END FLASH—

Aberdeen shared the tears with Kieran over the loss of a sibling. She knew the pain inside that it caused to the heart. Aberdeen couldn’t watch anymore and started looking away, but then Kirie approached Kieran and said, ” Get up Kieran. Stop moping about like coward, Connor did this to help us and protect us. Don’t let his actions go to waste so get your ass up and lets go kick that things ass.” Kieran in his anguish told Kirie"Who the fuck do you think you are? You know nothing of who I am, or what I'm going through. I lost my brother today, I have to face my family after I failed to protect my younger brother and you have the balls to call me a coward? So why don't you take your useless faux inspiring words and shove them up your ass." Afterwards Kieran gave Kirie a shadow electric punch to the face. In her breath Aberdeen mumbled, “Serves him right.”

Aberdeen then recalled how many people tried to get her to be her “old self” despite the fact that her sister had just passed away. They said stuff like Kirie said, that she should move on with life and not waste the opportunity that Brooklyn had given her to live. However, Aberdeen felt that they didn’t understand what she was truly going through. You cannot just move on that fast. They weren’t in the car with her and they did not witness what she had just seen in front of her eyes. She lost her sister and she can never get her back. It was all so that Aberdeen could live...that Brooklyn could not continue hers.

Aberdeen looked on and saw Kieran turn his back to everyone with it slightly trembling and moving as a person in tears would be. She wanted to let him know that he wasn’t alone, that she knew exactly how he felt, but then she’d be a hypocrite of her past experiences and sides, he didn’t know her so well. Why would he calm down and open to her? Suddenly an apparition appeared over Kieran’s shoulder. As it started to come into focus, it appeared to have blonde hair and seemed identical in height to Kieran.

“Connor!?!” Aberdeen gasped. She had almost forgotten she was gifted with the ability to see ghosts, when Connor had reminded her that she was able to do so. Connor’s ghost appeared to be trying to console Kieran and to reassure him playfully, but it was no use. Kieran did not possess the ability Aberdeen did and didn’t seem to notice Connor.

“It’s not fair Brook,” Aberdeen whispered. “I can always see you even though you’re gone and you can always be with me no matter what, but Kieran... How can I tell him what Connor is trying to say?”

While thinking Aberdeen briefly heard Ms. Brumfield’s instructions to her. “Aberdeen you’ll be the bait of sorts but don’t worry Amon will make sure it doesn’t get too close to you and the same goes for you Opal. Kirie I want you to accompany Aberdeen as well, with your abilities he’ll want the both of you as his next meal. And that’s something we cannot have so I trust that you and Amon can protect each other.”

Aberdeen was a bit angered by the fact she had to work with that jerk who thought that he could pretend to understand and rouse Kieran to battle, but she tried to hide her anguish and just clenched her fists. Opal approached Aberdeen and grabbed both of her hands with her own saying with a determined smile, “Let’s do this. Be careful, okay?” Aberdeen simply nodded in response worried about her friend. Still she was the bait and she would gladly be one to draw the monster’s attention to her and not Opal. When Opal had left off with Jaxon, Aberdeen was about to go to Kirie. However, she was suddenly overtaken by some force and started walking in the direction of Kieran who was accompanied by Melody.

“Wait…no… what are you doing to me?? I can’t go over there. Kieran needs his space and Melody is right there for him he doesn’t need me!” Aberdeen thought at whatever was taking over her.

”He needs his brother though.” a familiar voice rang in Aberdeen’s head.

”Connor!?! How did you—“

”Hey thanks for volunteering. It’s cool that you’re a spirit Magni. Now I can talk to my brother through you so that he can hear it from the man himself.

Aberdeen possessed by Connor had walked up to the two when Melody turned with her red face saying, “Geez! Say you’ll help me kick that thing’s ass already, I’m running out of movie quotes.”

“Yeah Kieran, help your girl kick some ass for me will you?” Aberdeen said with Connor’s voice. She couldn’t believe what was happening. “Hey bro, I know this is weird but I took over Aberdeen’s body because I needed to say one last thing to you before I go. I meant what I said, I want to see you and Melody happy together and I want you to live your life how you want it. But in order to live your life you gotta keep it and use it. She needs you and the others need your help. I’ll always be here watching for you, so you’re never alone. I know Mom, Dad, and Taryn will miss me, but it’s not your fault for my death. I chose this path, this is how I wanted to live my life, and I would do the same thing over again, especially if it meant seeing you sade. So come on the girl just asked you on a date to pulverize a freaking monster! Won’t that be fun?”

Aberdeen could feel Connor’s presence start to leave her body and she was starting to be able to control bits of her body.
“I have to go now, but I’m glad I could talk to you for one last time. Now go kick some ass!” and with those final words, Connor left Aberdeen’s body. Aberdeen couldn’t help but feel embarrassed over what had just happened, but she was glad that she could help Connor give his final message to Kieran. With that, Aberdeen turned serious and moved away towards Kirie to implement the plan. “I should be going now…I have to help attract the monster… And Kieran, your brother really is going to always watch over you. Trust me, I know.”

Kirie

"Who the fuck do you think you are? You know nothing of who I am, or what I'm going through." Then pausing for a moment continued "I lost my brother today, I have to face my family after I failed to protect my younger brother and you have the balls to call me a coward?" Kieran said, “So why don't you take your useless faux inspiring words and shove them up your ass."

This was not the reaction Kirie was hoping for, not at all, and was about to reply in equal anger. That is until Kieran punched him right under the chin making him fall back on his butt. Kirie sat there dazed a hand pressed to his chin. He felt that familiar static and knew Raimei had appeared behind him, probably to extract revenge on Kieran for punching her Magni. ”No Raimei, leave it alone. It wasn’t right of me to have said that but it worked for me. And Kieran I do know what you’ve been through all too well. That time I did not have the leisure to mourn their deaths only to turn orders into action.” his voice grew quieter and he heard Raimei sniffle.

but he should apologize to Raimei for making her cry. So stop crying silly it doesn’t hurt that bad really, it’s better than him killing me right? he smiled sadly looking at the ground and then sighed calming his mind. He stood up brushing the dirt from his clothes, rubbing his chin and winced from where Kieran had dealt the most damage. ”damn Kieran sure throws a good punch way better than a certain someone I know. then the image of a forever smiling face and bright orange hair crossed his mind. Shaking his head to clear his mind of those thoughts Kirie looked over at Kieran and Melody who was soon joined by Aberdeen.

whats going on? Did Aberdeen just get possessed by Connors ghost? Kirie blinked a couple times but decided now wasn’t the time to wonder what it was Aberdeen was capable of doing at the moment. Hopefully that would bring Kieran back.

Ms. Brumfield

She huffed at Kirie for being rude but then her expression softened as she remembered that Kirie had gone through the same things before at a greater cost and more frequently at that. oh poor boys. Why does it seem this year I got all the rejects and those from a sad background frowning. Then Kieran went off and punched Kirie pretty good too. This caused Amon to burst out laughing with amusement. “hohoho! Didn’t expect that did you little man. But next time don’t ignore me boy” snarling at Kieran as he walked away. Ms. Brumfield didn’t expect Kieran to react in such a way and to walk away after all that irritated her but she let it slid. he did just lose his brother before his very eyes.

As he walked Kieran heard someone walking behind him, “Kieran.” A familiar voice called out. She grabbed his arm and turned him around so he faced her. “I...” She started to say and then paused. She sighed and embraced him and a comforting hug, Kieran hugged her back, he buried his face in her hair as she spoke, “I'd say something, but nothing will make you feel better. I'm sorry. For Connor. “If he hadn't saved me, if I hadn't stood there, he'd still be alive and you wouldn't feel like complete shit.” "It's not your fault!" Kieran wanted to scream, but instead he just thought it. When she spoke again Kieran lifted his head and looked down at her, still holding her close, "Look, I'm not going to tell you to do anything." She said breaking off the hug and locking eyes with Kieran. "Probably sounds weird coming from someone who has done nothing else, but you don't have to deal with this alone. You got Nox."

She paused and averted her eyes, "And, if you want: you can aske me for help, too." She coughed to cover her just how bright red her cheeks had become, "Geez! Say you'll me kick that thing's ass already, I'm running out of movie quotes." She exclaimed her hands at her sides. "I ... I don't know ... " he said unsure of himself.

Before Kieran could say any more Aberdeen walked up to them “Yeah Kieran, help your girl kick some ass for me will you?” It was Connor's voice he heard, “Hey bro, I know this is weird but I took over Aberdeen’s body because I needed to say one last thing to you before I go. I meant what I said, I want to see you and Melody happy together and I want you to live your life how you want it. But in order to live your life you gotta keep it and use it. She needs you and the others need your help. I’ll always be here watching for you, so you’re never alone. I know Mom, Dad, and Taryn will miss me, but it’s not your fault for my death. I chose this path, this is how I wanted to live my life, and I would do the same thing over again, especially if it meant seeing you sad. So come on the girl just asked you on a date to pulverize a freaking monster! Won’t that be fun? I have to go now, but I’m glad I could talk to you for one last time. Now go kick some ass!” And like that Connor was gone, Kieran didn't even have time to say anything. But his resolve was back.
Aberdeen now spoke to him, “I should be going now … I have to help attract the monster … And Kieran, your brother really is going to always watch over you. Trust me, I know.” He didn't know why but he believed her, he simply nodded in response.

Kieran turned back to Melody, "You and Connor are right, I need to go kick that things ass." He said, his voice determined. "I want you to do as Brumfield requested, protect the others. I have a plan and it's probably best there is no one near me." His voice wavered a bit towards the end as if he wasn't sure about his plan. "Nox you're with me, Hans stay close to Melody, keep her safe." He said to the two demons and they nodded in response, both fully aware now was not the time to goof off.

Kieran walked towards Maledict, his body sparking slightly. Then he suddenly stopped, Maledict's attention was directed elsewhere, "What the hell am I doing, I cant control my powers, all I do is become a shadow. I wish Connor was here, he'd be able to help me." Kieran thought, and then something strange happened, Kieran heard a voice, not with his ears but in his heart, "Funny you should say that, what do ya need buddy?" It was Connor! "I can't do this man, I'm scared." He thought / said to his brother. "No shit you're scared, that's one scary dude out there, just go kick it's ass, I know you hate bullies, and that's one hell of a bully out there. Connor responded with a laugh. "I'm not strong enough." Kieran said flatly, "I know a crater over there that would argue with you." Connor retorted. "I can't do that, I have no control, I'll hurt someone, there is no way I won't. Kieran said, his internal voice shaking. "Hey now! Why are you thinking? What have you told me ever since we were small and I said we couldn't do something. Connor said, egging him on. "It's not the same." Kieran said making excuses. "Bullshit, when I said it was impossible to fill the office with Jello what did you say? When someone tells you, you can't do it, what do you say?" Connor said, hoping his brother would take the bait. Kieran sighed, "Well, we would always say, Fuck Logic, Do the Impossible, but I don't see ho- " Connor cut his brother off before he could finish, "You're damn right we did, cause we don't think. Why the hell are you thinking this through? Just go out there and wreck shit. All you need to think about, is protecting, Taryn, Mom, Melody, and yourself. You got this bro. You don't need me to protect you anymore, I trust that you won't hurt anyone with your powers anymore. Hell you haven't needed me to fight your battles for you since you stopped trying to tap into your elemental powers, you knew it was dangerous, so you mastered your shadow powers. Now it's time to master your elements, I have faith that you can do it, but there is only one way to find out. Don't believe in the you who believes in me. Don't believe in the me who believes in you. Believe in the you who believes in yourself." Connor finally got through to Kieran, as he was reminded of a show the two of them watched as kids, Kieran always wanted to be just like Kamina, but when you think about it, Connor was the Kamina and Kieran was the Simon. Kamina might be gone, but he'll always be remembered, and it's time for Simon to get his shit together and take down the big bad guy. "You're right this fucker's mine." Kieran said out loud this time, his voice poised and confident.

Kieran began walking towards Meledict again, "HEY FUCK - FACE!" He hollered at the beast. "You and I got a score to settle." Kieran said his voice loud and clear as his body began sparking more and more, a spectacle not unlike the last time, the sparks were erratic in position and intensity. "What are you afraid of me? I'm so much smaller than you, and yet you can't hurt me, you can't even touch me. So come at me bro, what are you waiting for?" Kieran mocked his target, but his tone was anything but jovial. Kieran's anger grew and with it the intensity of the sparks around his body, "That's it, I got this, time to do the impossible, who needs logic anyway?" he though to himself. Throughout all of this Nox as stood next to Kieran, his trust in his old friend unwavering. He heard the conversation between Kieran and Connor, and he was glad that Kieran was finally ready to take some responsibility. "What are you just gonna keep breaking buildings and beating up on defenseless army guys? Come on fight me like a man. I'm waiting!" Kieran called out to him, continuing to taunt the beast.

Watching the entire scene of Connor dying he sat there with an emotionless face and could only close his eyes as a silent prayer to the boy who gave his life for Melody and bowed his head slightly. Slightly after this everyone got into an uproar over what just happened even to the point of Kirie getting punched and Kieran having a little temper tantrum to which Jaxon just huffed. "Someone dies and everyone goes into such disarray.... great... fucking great."

What happened next sent a shiver up his spine though as Aberdeen started talking in Connor's voice to Kieran and this unnerved Jaxon the most as it was so spot on and uncanny as to how they would talk. Just after their little moment Aberdeen retreated to the back of the group and Jaxon shook his head regaining his composure and looked to the others as everyone seemed to be mentally exhausted over Connor's death and with that he spoke to himself. "A terrible catastrophe played by a symphony, what a terrifying work of art. I commend you demon..."

Looking up again he spoke loudly to the others to try to reclaim order over everyone. "Alright everyone with what just happened, do not fear the enemy revel in the power that is the confidence to avenge our classmate and use all of your being to stop this thing! No matter what it throws at us our combined power will overcome this beast, it feeds on magic but if it is starved or puts up too much of a fight it shall fall. Now with that in mind everyone stay in formation and protect those around you and provide them safety, I won't have another one of us fall!"

Just after saying this Kieran at the front of everyone started to taunt the demon aloud in front of everyone. "What are you just gonna keep breaking buildings and beating up on defenseless army guys? Come on fight me like a man. I'm waiting!" After he started yelling this Jaxon couldn't help but be startled by Kieran's idiotic confidence. 'What the hell is that idiot think he's doing? His brother couldn't do a thing to it and he's challenging it alone... Why do the people who are never serious not even serious in times like this?' Shaking this thought from his head he looked to Opal and threw a small pebble to her. "Change of plans I'll back up our 'hero' and make sure he doesn't die, from there provide me cover with your gravity and make sure it can't work effectively. From there we'll have the plan in motion and throw it into one of my gates, from there we'll take it down alright?" Turning toward Kieran he then sighed aloud and flash warped right next to Kieran and grabbed his shoulder.

"Hey there Kieran you're sparking just like my dorm mate in the back. If it wasn't for the fact my hand is in another dimension I'd probably be in some pain no?" Smirking at Kieran he turned toward the monster and started chewing on his tongue for a second. "Alright hero you're the star of the show for now and I'm here to fight with you so you don't screw up. That said we'll start our attack as soon as it charges, when it does get ready to move I have Opal on standby to help us out. That said the others are there to protect those who can't fight so it's just you and me for right now." Hiding his face behind his collar he spoke calmly and stretched his arms out slowly and then his hands started flickering slowly until each of his hands looked like they were in 3 different places at once. "Alright here we go things are about to get interesting..."

#, as written by Byte
Was that really Connor? Confused, Melody couldn't believe what she was hearing. A rare occurrence, considering the nature of the girl's magic and all the perks it gave. She was dumbfounded, but had already concluded bollocks on it. Despite knowing about magic for, well, since she knew she could use it, Melody found it hard to imagine the dead actually being able to speak or be a real thing in the first place.

She kept silent, not wishing to vocalize her quick judgement on this phenomena lest it send Kieran back into the spiralling abyss of depression. Again. Maybe, somehow, it could happen. Magic is limitless. after all, or so her father told her. Melody nodded, watching Aberdeen-- Connor, Connerdeen? leave to rejoin the others.

“You and Connor are right, I need to go kick that things ass.”

Kieran spoke up, facing her as he seemed... Confident? Sort of. It was good to see him stick his head out of that black void of sorrow. If only for the time being. “Great. Let's go th-”

“I want you to do as Brumfield requested, protect the others. I have a plan and it's probably best there is no one near me. ”

WHAAAAAAT?!

No, seriously. What?

Nonononononono! There wasn't a single word about kicking its [b]ass[/i] by yourself. You're in need of help for that, like, totally! Look how-

“C'mon! You're asking me to do the impossible.” Melody groaned, her eyes meeting a determined Kieran that seemingly wasn't planning to back out of this idea. He looked serious about it, was this really what he needed to do?

“I...” The girl began, wanting to protest, or at the very least object somehow. However, all that came out was the acceptance of another fool trying to single-handedly kick something until its ass was twisted, turned and inside out. “Ugh... Fine.”

No, it isn't fine.

Not fine at all. But-

“Go have your little game. But you owe me big time, buster!” She exclaimed, a weak smile forming on her face.

“I'm serious, and this time you can't sate me with a cake or something simple.” Melody nudged her friend in the side, watching him go off on his personal quest of kicking butt-cheeks, before rejoining the others to 'help' out.

After witnessing Kieran back to his old self and asking the demon to fight him, Opal caught the small pebble that Jaxon threw towards her.

”Change of plans I'll back up our 'hero' and make sure he doesn't die, from there provide me cover with your gravity and make sure it can't work effectively. From there we'll have the plan in motion and throw it into one of my gates, from there we'll take it down alright?"

Before Opal could ask questions or respond back, Jaxon disappeared in a flash and seconds later he was besideKieran. Opal was slightly confused as to why Jaxon asked to make sure her gravity doesn’t work effectively, but she was still very excited that she’ll be a part of the action…sort of! Hey, it still counts that she’s going to use her gravity powers to suck it right into Jaxon’s trap! Still, Opal looked at the size of the monster who had gotten much larger since she had last seen it. She was worried that she wouldn’t be able to pull it down well because of its massive size, but she knew that Jaxon was counting on her so she had to accomplish her task. She looked at her tiny pebble again, surprised that it was incredible smooth. Smiling at the nice gesture she decided to put it in her pocket for good luck later, though she didn't exactly know why she would think it's good luck.

Opal then remembered that Jaxon had only told her about the slight change and not the others so she decided to inform the others, starting with Aberdeen. She saw her headed for Kirie’s way and decided to tell her first. She rushed over to Aberdeen and informed her of what Jaxon had told her.

”Abby, Jaxon changed the plan a bit. He’s going to fight with Kieran and I’ll have to cover him with my gravity. Our plan will start there and he’ll throw it into one of his gates where we’ll take it down!” Opal said with“oomph!” to it. Although she had witnessed the sad events before her eyes she was still excited and determined to take down the monstrocity. She tried to be optimistic. Even though the plan didn’t start right away and it changed a bit, that didn’t discourage Opal one bit.

After informing Aberdeen, Opal’s next move was to inform someone else that would be helping her, so she decided to go to Jayson. Opal ran to Jayson’s side and repeated the same message she relayed to Aberdeen, hoping that she was able to get the idea across.

”So, you ready for this? I’ll need your help keeping me cover when I have to put up the gravitational field to pull it down.

Image

After hearing the change of plans, Aberdeen nodded, meaning she understood Opal’s message. It seemed that the group had to wait until Kieran and Jaxon needed the portal so that the monster could be finished. Before Aberdeen could respond back, Opal left in the direction of Jayson to inform her about the change of plans. Aberdeen realized that she probably should inform Kirie of the change, but then she saw Melody first and decided to tell her about the change of plans. While she was at it she wanted to apologize about barging in even though that was technically Connor…

Melody was heading back to go to the group when Aberdeen caught up with her and said, ”Wait! Opal just told me Jaxon changed some plans. It seems that Kieran and Jaxon are going to fight the thing now while Opal stands by for backup. Then when the plan is implemented and the monster is in Jaxon’s gate transport…whatever, we’re going to kick its butt. Aberdeen was surprised at herself. She hadn’t been that casual in a long time, but she didn’t want to worry about that now. She knew she had to help Opal inform the slight change so that things can go smoothly.

”So uh…did you get that?” Aberdeen asked and started turning her back to Melody and almost headed towards Kieran when she remembered the last thing on her list of things to do before she goes and helps this magic class fight a big monster.

“Oh yeah…and sorry for interrupting whatever it was back there… I didn’t really have control over me.

Before she moved on she mumbled, “Take care of Opal will you?” and then headed off to Kirie.

When she reached Kirie’s side, she relayed the same instructions about Jaxon’s new and improved plan. ”I suppose that means we must wait first then when they need us we attract its attention using our magic? After which, Opal will use the power of gravity, with Melody and Jayson looking after her, to pull it to Jaxon’s gate thing and there we finish it. Unless by “we” he meant he and Kieran…” Aberdeen trailed off hating the fact that she was useless in actual attack damage and that she’s even confusing her own self now. ”Ah anyway, where is Amon? We should..ahem…tell it the new plan.” Aberdeen cleared her throat and regained her serious composure. She did that half because she had been talking so much in a long while that she wasn’t used to it and needed to clear her throat and half because she had realized she would be talking to that teacher’s demon and wanted to maintain a serious face rather than a frightened one.

Kirie

Kirie then sneezed rubbing his nose in wonder. someone must have mentioned my name, I wonder who? Could it have been her-nah couldn’t be shaking his head Kirie watched as Aberdeen walked over to him and began to talk to him.

“I suppose that means we must wait first then when they need us we attract its attention using our magic? After which, Opal will use the power of gravity, with Melody and Jayson looking after her, to pull it to Jaxon’s gate thing and there we finish it. Unless by “we” he meant him and Kieran…” she then trailed off but before Kirie ould say anything concerning the new revised plan she asked a question.

”Ah anyway, where is Amon? We should. . ahem … tell it the new plan.”

He is well aware of the new plan girl. I do have a gender so do not referrer to me as an it. Its rude that you haven’t figured that out yet, I guess not all Magni are gifted with common sense” rolling his eyes he snorted. “well that doesn’t matter right now. We need to back them up so we should probably get to it.” taking on an equally serious composure similar to Aberdeen’s. “so all we have to do is wait until they start the attack right should be no problem, no problem at all . . . “ his voice trailed off but he was mainly talking to himself.

Amon noticed this and rolled his eyes looking over at his Magni who scowled at him with a nod of acknowledgement. my dear you would put me in charge of a bunch of idiots wouldn’t you oh shut up Amon, you’ll do as I say so just do your job and keep them safe or I’ll flay you alive got it she spoke sternly within the confines of their mind. The only answer she received was a chuckle from Amon as he pulled at the ground with his claws eager for a fight and maybe the taste of flesh.

Maledict shook with contempt at the challenges of…a child? A child is challenging him?! Some would say ignorance is a principal of the young, after all. Very well, it was starting to get boring anyway. Time for some fun! This bulky form of Maledict was weighing him down. If he was going to teach these brats a lesson, it had to be more…visually spectacular. With that, Maledict shed the shadows that made up his body in a circular shockwave of darkness that knocked everything within 150 ft with shattering force as he assumed his true form: 6 ft 5 in tall, skinny body of a male human who has endured an entire year without nutrition, kept alive only by the magic within himself, his hands, forearms, calves and feet still covered in dark armor. With gray hair to his waist, and eyes just as grey and glazed over, empty, hollow, this creature was living death. A massive sword in its hand, Maledict took a step forward. All the power it had used to sustain its armor now surged through its being in an extremely thick aura of pure black. There was also one more feature that stood out…a pitch black orb of darkness lodged in its chest. “Ah, much better…what’s that, whelp? A challenge…very well. I’m going to enjoy making you scream to high heaven!” With that, the creature known as Maledict leaped into the air and came down smashing the sword to the ground, animating shadows into tendrils that struck out as soon as the blade met the ground. The 8 ft radius of power flipped cars and any Magni it hit. Then Maledict saw the others…What were they planning? Knowing the basics of battle, the more important pieces on the board were always behind the pawns. Preparing a blue ball of energy, Maledict launched Apocalypse Beam directly above the Magni further away. The building behind them erupted into rubble as a cascade of debris descended upon these supposed “key players”, or the more vulnerable, either way. Then he heard someone take a step. He couldn’t see anyone but he could feel it. Maledict began launching tendrils in every direction to try and hit the assailant. Cars and windows and any object left unattended by the fleeing human inhabitants of this place were soon shattered and riddled with holes as Maledict began his crazy attack. Then he saw the one who challenged him. An evil grin upon the creature’s face, Maledict continued his assault with the shadows as he slowly walked towards the youth, sword in hand, lusting for the blood of this insolent meatbag! This was going to be fun!

#, as written by Byte
Melody's eyes turned to her entourage, more precisely the new addition, Hans. It puzzled her greatly that the fox creature was still in this world. Not that the girl had some contrived theory to how it wasn't possible, but still, why was he still here.

“Do you... Really think we can beat that thing?” Melody asked out of the blue, hoping on some guidance or advice or... assurance from Hans. Not that it'd help the internal fear seep away. It was not herself she was worried about. She'd be behind the front, doing all the safety work and all that. No, rather, would Kieran be okay?

Her eyes practically said everything her emotions and words didn't, Melody was scared to death of this thing – Hell, didn't help that she met it eye to eye, if only for a brief second.

Approaching her 'appointed spot' Melody was quickly put to an abrupt stop as someone shouted: “Wait!”

What now...

“Opal just told me Jaxon changed some plans. It seems that Kieran and Jaxon are going to fight the thing now while Opal stands by for backup.”

Sorry, what? Well, now she knew who's gotta get his ass kicked for wanting to take credit for beating the hell out of their first monstrosity. “Fuckin' asshat.” Melody mentioned with an absent mind, only barely listening to Aberdeen's brief explanation of the new plan.

Why did she mention this to her? The new plan didn't seem to change anything for her. Actually, somehow it managed to become less, didn't it? Melody now had the proud role of hoping something would be thrown in Opal's direction so she could protect her.

What a load of crappers. She thought, letting out an unsatisfied groan.

“So uh…did you get that?”

The blonde girl nodded. “Boys get to do their manly things, the others get to sit back and watch while they pull into a thingamajiggy, then we all get to kick one percent of the things buttocks. Toht-a-lee got it, girl.”

Yeah she got it, but not in the 'Yeah I know why they are doing it that way.' kind of sense. “Boys will be boys, I guess.” Melody noted, shrugging as she mentally called out a second “Good luck.” to Kieran.

“Oh yeah…and sorry for interrupting whatever it was back there… I didn’t really have control over me.”

Huh? Oh... That. Yeah, you totally ruined a perfect moment there, but not really. “Don't. You- Err, Connor, seemed to have gotten Kieran off his ass. I'm just a footnote on that document.” The girl let out a sigh. “Anyway, thanks for the pointless information. I'm off.” She gave Aberdeen a lazy wave, then heading for her group to get ready for battle.

She really was going to do this, wasn't she? She was going to 'fight' in a sense. “Lore, I want you to stay back for a bit. Okay?”

The demon was less than pleased about this. “No! Melly can't go without Lorelei!” She sang, pleading for her Magni to resign from this course of action.

“No, I can't. Usually. But I want you to stay back for now, Hans will keep you save, right?” Melody flashed a glance at the fox. “If anything goes wrong, I don't want you in the middle of it. Just do as I say, just this once, Lore.” Melody flashed her eternal companion a smile, gently rubbing the little siren's cheek before removing her coat and tossing it to the two demons. “Well, wish me luck. We'll win this, I hope...”

As everyone was up and ready to fight, the creature stood silent for a moment before releasing a gigantic wave of shadows that hurled anything not nailed to the floor a good few feet off the ground

After that, the first attack was made, and the fight had finally begun. The creature, form what Melody could witness, leaped into the air and send slammed into the ground, sending rubble, cars and mailboxes galore that were fairly tough to evade. Melody, at one point, had to gather a large quantity of sound in the palm of her hand to crush an incoming debris that would've pancaked her were it not for her quick response and breaking it into a bazillion pieces that left little more than scratches on her body as they soared beside her.

But their troubles hadn't passed just yet. Shortly after that display, the magni that weren't fighting head on were about to be dog-piled by a massive chunk of skyscraper, were it not for the barrier of roots that suddenly, ironically, rooted from the ground and formed an impenetrable barrier that blocked the deadly debris.

“Whew, close call.” Melody muttered under her heavy breathing, observing as her fellow Magni were starting to tire. Whatever to plan was, they'd better began to play it out as soon as possible.

After being insulted by Amon, Aberdeen tried to shrug it off, ignoring him and focusing on the mission. However, she was still bothered knowing that unlike many of the Magni here, she has very limited knowledge on Magni, demons, and even her own powers. She had witnessed Kieran and Connor display such amazing magical prowess when she couldn’t even muster some aggressive powers. She tried to get her mind on something else and ended up with thinking about Melody’s responses.

“Boys get to do their manly things, the others get to sit back and watch while they pull into a thingamajiggy, then we all get to kick one percent of the things buttocks. Toht-a-lee got it, girl.”

Although Aberdeen had to admit this wasn’t exactly something different and that it was true, she couldn’t help but chuckle a bit at the sarcastic way Melody summarized what Aberdeen had said. She smiled a bit remembering how she told her not to feel sorry and the thanks, even though she called it “pointless information.” Then she remembered she was in the middle of a monster battle, so she made sure to straighten out her face and get serious, keeping a footnote to talk to more people to get more responses like Melody’s. She started becoming curious about the other Magni.

Thinking about this, she almost missed Kirie’s response saying that they must wait until the attack starts which should be no problem. However, the monster had sent a shockwave knocking things down and revealed his true self…a human male who seemed malnourished with dark armor. What caught her eye was a pitch black orb of darkness that seemed to be latched onto the chest. “That black orb…is that his weak point? Or perhaps…his power source?” Aberdeen thought to herself, though unknowingly she said it out loud. She then wondered whether this boy was really himself or if he was controlled. She couldn’t help but feel somewhat sorry for the state the boy was in. Those feelings soon changed when the buildings started to crumble away by the influence of some sort of beam and the debris began falling towards her and the others. Luckily, Jayson had created a large plant barrier that kept the debris from falling on to them. Looking back at the now human formed monster smiling, Aberdeen wondered how this came to be and whether he is actually doing this on his own will or not. Still, they had to stop him, and Aberdeen focused on the plan.

Opal seemed to be in concentration and using her powers, for things around the monster like a car seemed to be making eerie screeching noises as though a powerful force was pushing on them. She can see that her friend was working really hard by the large amount of breathing she made. Opal yelled, “Hurry up!” clearly in pain from using a lot of energy. Worried about her friend and wanting to take part, Aberdeen called out to Kirie and Amon saying, “We gotta help her!” and ran out to Opal. Aberdeen called Lucy, realizing that Lucy had vanished ever since the fight to some sort of shadows, and asked her to help and assist Opal with her own magic. Lucy agreed and sent energy to Opal, hoping that it would be enough to sustain her while others react.

Finding a spot that was a short distance away from Opal, Aberdeen then did as she was told before, turning herself invisible and translucent whilst unleashing a lot of energy to draw Maledict in further. She remembered his lust for magic and power, and hoped that in his greed he would try to go for her, the more vulnerable one, without stopping to get away from Opal’s gravity. Hopefully Jaxon or Kieran can end the monster’s, Opal’s, Aberdeen’s and anyone else’s misery and finally finish the fight.

Kirie

The amount of power the monster had was astounding, he did his best to avoid flying debris and such but didn’t come away unscathed much to his misfortune and Raimei’s. However something good came out of it or at least Kirie would like to think so. The monster it seemed turned out to be a young man who looked like he went to hell and back. He still wore black armor but it didn’t seem as imposing as before and like Aberdeen had pointed out there was a black shadowy orb in his chest. interesting, could Aberdeen be right? Is that his weak point? unfortunately Kirie had little time to think of such things as the creature let loose a beam of energy, eradicating nearby buildings. In which huge chunks of it came falling down to splatter them onto the pavement. Thankfully Jayson took care of their protection by creating a huge barrier made up of plants.

Regaining his bearings Kirie realized Opal had begun with her side of plan. The area around the monster looked like it was being crushed by an invisible force which it was and that force was called gravity. Though it looked like she was already reaching her limit, [i[dammit Keiran Jaxon hurry up and complete your side of the plan before it’s too late[/i] he thought in anxious. Then Aberdeen called for help or rather for him and Amon to help out Opal, and so he followed after Aberdeen not really caring if Amon was with him or not. He ran over to Opal and closed his eyes for a moment praying that his plan would work. “alright Opal I’m going to try to give you a boost! I’ve never tried this before but I’m sure it’ll work trust me on this” without even waiting for her consent, Kirie took off his glasses and placed his hands firmly on her shoulders and began to channel electricity into Opal. It was the kind that would keep her body going and he gave her a small steady trickle of it. That way he wouldn’t lose consciousness and Opal wasn’t overloaded.

"No, you see your hand might be safe now, but I have no idea what is gonna happen when I decide to let go. I have NEVER been able to produce more than a small spark, and we all saw what happened last time I let go. I'm gonna go ape shit and kick this things ass and you are gonna go be all the way over there" Following Kieran's hand over to where Opal was he smirked but Kieran continued. "where I won't hurt you. I don't want to hurt anyone, but dad always said I was stronger than Connor, Connor only beats me cause he actually studies. So if he can nearly beat that thing, I think I got a shot. And believe what you want but he told me I could do this, I didn't think I could but he believes in me. Why don't you just back off a bit and let me do my thing. If I get in trouble then you and Opal can come help. I don't have a death wish or anything but that fucker killed my brother, it is MY right to stop it." Jaxon stood there completely annoyed, and just started speaking to him. "Are you fucking kidding me? Your right? Unlike the others I'm not gonna baby talk you through it, your brother is dead, end of story. What you need now is the truth not pretty words to dance around to help cope with this fact, nothing else. But here's the thing, it's not your right to defeat him it's all of ours, he was our classmate too. And I for one--" Jaxon half way through his rant was cut short by a glare from Kieran with the following sentence in response. "Dude I'm serious just get the hell out of here, if I didn't want Melody, or Hans helping me why would I ask you?"

Right after he said this the monster exploded in an aura of darkness which Jaxon instinctively changed his dimensional structure and let the blow pass through him harmlessly along with all of the debris that came with it. After this had been done, the monster had seemed to shed it's armor when Jaxon felt something.... different about it. Focusing on his own aura he extended to the monster and felt a secondary presence imbedded in its chest. "What is that?..." Having this said the monster spoke arrogantly towards Kieran. “Ah, much better…what’s that, whelp? A challenge…very well. I’m going to enjoy making you scream to high heaven!”

After this had happened Kieran had started taunting the thing and then began his onslaught of the beast using a lot of power that honestly caught Jaxon by surprise and had to flash warp a few feet away just to stay out of the minimum range of it all. Sadly just after this though Kieran tried to end it all by firing a beam at the thing's chest but apparently didn't have the energy for it all and the beam fell short of it, to where Kieran collapsed right where he was. 'Idiot.... I tried to tell him but... whatever.' After shaking this thought from his head the monster started forward towards him but stopped as the ground below him started to break away. "Good this works in my favor then!" Quickly Jaxon then flashed warped back into the fray but had just enough time to Flash Warp Kieran away from the battle only to be attacked by a tentacle. Struggling against the thing he slipped out of its grip by yet again changing his dimension only to see Opal and Jayson getting dragged by the thing.

'Now I have to save these guys? Wow this is just not my day is it now?.... Whatever I have plans for taking this thing down but allies come first.' Takinlg a deep breath he flash warped to Opal first so that the vine that Jayson had sent to attack the monster could finish it's attack. "Hey how's it going? I thought I asked Kirie to protect you guys but look who's here instead. Now hold on I've never flash warped another person besides Kieran but he was out cold so I don't know how you'll feel afterward!" That said he grabbed both Ella and Opal and warped them toward Aberdeen and the others, and quickly started his next jump to Jayson. "Alright here's warp number 2, Jayson keep calm and continue with the vines if you can." Taking a deep breath he warped her to where the others were and looked over to the monster.

"This is where it ends monster, I know about you and your little secret. So either surrender now or that orb on your chest is done for got it?" Closing his eyes he spoke to Tama quietly. "Do we still have enough energy?" "We will if we use the junction." "Alright start it up I'm counting on you buddy." "You got it Jax.... JUNCTION START!" Right after their little conversation a figure resembling a blade had appeared to run down from Jaxon's forearm to his finger tips and with each movement of his arm, where the blade would be only distortions in the air were created. "Ready or not, here I come!" With this he started charging the monster flash warping every couple of steps towards it. "Here I go, Try and stop me monster! This sword is able to cut through dimensions, what chance do you have?" With that last line stated Jaxon swung straight for the orb on the monster chest. "Checkmate..."

Sand…sand and dust. That is the only thing Maledict bleeds. The blade may not have damaged the orb, but it glinted off and tore through the already dying body that Maledict control. The last of the fusion creature’s energy went into healing itself before Maledict began trembling violently. “N…NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I…MUST…EXIST!! IT’S WHY I’M HERE!!!! “Then one of Maledict’s eyes filled in, becoming green, and alive. It looked to the other eye, still empty and white. A voice of a young man, though raspy, was full of life. “It’s over…this can’t continue.” “But…” “This is my body, not yours. You did your job. Now, you’re no longer needed.” “YOU CAN’T…” “Watch me.” Maledict screamed and bellowed as energy began consuming the creature. Out of desperation, Maledict launched one final attack at the base of a nearby skyscraper, causing it to begin collapsing towards himself. Falling to one knee, a now awoken Seagus was in control and stood up and looked at those responsible for stopping Maledict, then to the building. It was falling too fast. With the last of the power of the fusion, Seagus used a massive wave of shadow constructs to push all the people who had participated in the battle a safe distance away from the falling structure as rubble began to rain down upon him. He smiled. Finally, this madness was over. He waved them goodbye as he turned around. “It’s funny, all this time, I thought I would never figure out the way out, but…” He gripped the orb, recognizing it as the body of his demon partner, Malice, who was also involved in the fusion. “It was right here, the whole time. Do you think…we’ll get to start anew, right our wrongs?” The building was no almost upon them, the magic physical enhancements sustaining Seagus. “Well…” He laughed as hard and happily as he could, as a free man! “Here is our chance to find out!” With that, Seagus yanked Malice from his chest as all the energy they shared began arcing in all directions as it sought a place to go. Then, as the building began falling, a large blue fire explosion of raw energy blew a large crater in the building in the debris.

The dust has settled, the building having completed its journey to the ground. A large crater in its ruins, a young man with dark hair lays unconscious, holding a black orb in his hand. The orb then began floating. “Seagus!” The voice of a young woman emanated from the orb as the auras that surrounded it began to solidify. A body, pure pitch black save for white hair, lifted Seagus’s limp form onto her back. She couldn’t help but be amazed at how light he was now. No, cry later, Seagus needs help! She began carrying him out of the ruins. “Someone…help!”

GM POST


It’s been a few(3) day since the field trip to the Human City. While there a monster arrives and begins to terrorize the city, decimating a quarter of it. In turn the visiting Magni took it into their own hands and tried to stop this monster. After a long battle the Magni finally defeated this monster now known as Maledict, however it came at a terrible price. The life of Connor Flanagan the brother of Kieran lost his life in fighting Maledict.

The students and teacher later realized that Maledict was in fact a young Magni who had fused with his demon and thus created the alternate persona; Maledict who thought only of protecting its Magni at first. Now after all that’s happened Ms. Brumfield was greeted by a room ransacked for what no one will really know. But it seems the new transfer student Li Wen had a hand in it as the Headmaster has sealed his abilities away for the time being and is now on probation along with Seagus their trial student who along with Li had his abilities sealed away. Their demons own abilities have been restricted so they will be unable to perform at their best.

Now that a few days has passed since then Ms. Brumfield has brought her students to the arena where they once had to fight one another, but instead of a duel the students are to participate in a game of capture the flag. The usual rules still apply and you have permission to use your abilities however you cannot use them once you reach the area around the flag which is a neutral zone.

The teams are as listed below:
Team A (May make a name of their own if they choose to do so)
-Kirie Askumoto
-Melody Mckinley

-Jaxon Rhys

-Venice Mikaelo

No one is allowed to sit out on this no matter the reason. The only ones however who will be unable to participate are Li Wen and Seagus Deaves due to being on probation, the only acception to this rule is if one of the teams is short on a player during the game. As well as Aberdeen Andrews who has been holed up in her room since the trip back from the city. No one has seen the young Magni very much not even the demons have seen Luciana very much either. Ms. Brumfield has left that alone under the impression Aberdeen is sick for the time being and will not delve into the girls business.

3 new students have been welcomed to Ms. Brumfields class which are Amaya Sokeitsu, a clumsy red head who is an acquaintance of Kirie, and the two sisters Cassandra and Mallory Banks, whose father is a teacher at the academy and is known for his inventions.

The setting starts off with both teams making plans on how to win Capture the Flag. However due to the circumstances of some of the Magni, namely Jaxon Rhys and Kieran Flanagan, whose abilities allow them a means of teleportation without any interference from the opposing team. They are given the handi-cap of not being able to use said ability if they are in possession of the flag.

Two days earlier…
Mallory got off the plane to find the airport in complete chaos. “Wow…what happened?” The National Guard was here, too…no doubt to help secure this place. But still, wasn’t this a bit much? Well, that’s what she thought at first, until she saw the footage of the city, entire buildings destroyed, the obituaries, and the mysterious events that caused it. They were claiming a hijacking did all the damage; apparently 3 hi jacked planes smashed into the city. Or, so the story goes. “Mallory?!” “Oh, Captain Rhodes!” “How’s my little snowflake?!” The captain, Randy Rhodes, had been a family friend of the Banks for years and years, every now and then watching Mallory, or Snowflake, as he called her, due to her hair and skin tone. Whenever her father went on a business trip, Rhodes was there to watch her since her mother had walked out. The two hugged and laughed when two soldiers ogled her. The captain looked at them sternly and they looked away rather quickly. “So, how’s your dad doing?” “He’s doing great! I heard he’s working on some new stuff!” “Heh, I owe that man my right leg, literally. If he hadn’t fixed me up, I’d be in a wheel chair or crutches. So where did you come back from?” “Germany. It was alittle cold but it was a wonderful trip.” “Ja?” Mallory laughed. “Ja!” “So, I take it you want to go to your dad’s house?” “Yeah, but this security is so thick. What happened?” “The city was attacked; a lot of stuff went down during the event. From what I know, they’re still looking through the wreckage. You…want to go to the school don’t you?” Unlike much of the military, Randy Rhodes knew all about the Magni. He had to; otherwise he would not be able to watch her when she was little. He also, after much consultation between Henry and the Headmaster, was entrusted with a key to the portal for emergencies only. The captain and Mallory gathered her luggage and loaded up a military jeep. Rhodes turned off the GPS before driving Mallory to the school.

An hour later…

“You know, I’m used to all this magic stuff, but godamn! It always freaks me out.” Mallory chuckled. “Your reaction is pretty understandable. In fact, it’s a great reaction. My mom…walked out on my dad and I when she found out. You, on the other hand, just get a little freaked out.” This was their conversation while unloading the jeep in the Academy. They carried the luggage to her room. “Now, I have a post to return to.” “At ease, Captain!” They saluted and smiled. Then they hugged one more time before Captain Rhodes exited the Academy. Mallory began unpacking when a rather large shadow appeared in her doorway. Then someone tackled her and both her and her attacker fell on the bed. The attacker grabbed a weapon and hit Mallory in the head with…a pillow? Mallory looked up to see the grinning face of none other than Cassa. Mallory pushed her off and grabbed a pillow and they both engaged in a pillow fight, laughing their asses off while hitting each other with bags of bird feathers. Finally, after about 20 minutes of being less mature than 5th graders, they hugged and laughed. “Welcome back!’ Cassa shouted, her strong embrace slightly crushing Mallory’s rib cage. “I missed you too, Cassa!” Mallory said in between breathes. Nass, who was on the ground, was looking up. “I missed you t-AGH!” Cassa gave Nass a well deserved kick. “Cassa, you have to tell me everything that’s happened since I’ve been gone!”

Down beneath the school…

Professor Henry Banks had always welcomed the unexpected. However, that doesn’t mean he always liked what he found. A young man, no doubt a Magni, was brought to him for medical examinations. What he found, or rather what he HADN’T had surprised him more than anything. This child, this young man…had no organs. And yet…he was alive? How? No doubt his powers have some role in it, but to possess no functional organs? It was beyond belief. “Hmm, I suppose that’s what happens when you don’t eat or drink for an entire year! And you said he was a fusion?” “Yes, Henry. For the 500th time, he was a fusion.” The Headmaster examined the X-rays and the MRI scans. “Why do you take such interest in that topic, Banks?” “Well, not only is this the first fusion Magni to be seen in centuries, but he’s ALIVE! Fusions usually die once the spell is deactivated. Either that or their powers burn out. What I’m seeing here, however, is neither. You said he still had powers to seal away, and from the looks of his body, I can see why the seals didn’t need to be that powerful. His powers…they’re being used as a life support system. In a way, he’s not alive at all.” “Yet, you can change this?” Banks looked at the headmaster with a look that screamed, ‘are you serious right now?’ The headmaster shrugged. “Very well, fix him up.” “Just so you know, sir. After I fix him up, you’re going to have to fix those seals. No doubt, his powers will be quite improved once I get his body repaired.” “Noted. Also, your daughter is back from Germany.” “…Really? That’s great! I’ll go see her as soon as I get this started!” The young man, now known as Seagus Deaves , was place on a circular platform. Its twin hung 15 feet above it. Henry pressed a button and both platforms roared to life as Seagus was lifted by an invisible force produced by the two discs. Once Seagus was upright, Banks slowly turned a dial until it was in full power. Seagus, unconscious, was now in the center of a bright column of light, a powerful beam of radiation and Banks’ magic, permeating his body and skin, slowly rebuilding his organs. With a satisfied nod, Professor Banks went to go see his daughters.

Present…

Mallory and Cassandra have geared up for capture the flag. Both Disturbix and Maelstrom present, they headed to the arena to meet up with their team mates. “Good luck, Cassa!” “You too, Mal. I won’t go easy on you.” “Good!”

Aberdeen heard that the others were going to be playing “Capture the Flag” and smiled but quickly changed her expression to a frown. She didn’t have the strength to get up and go play with the others. Heck she didn’t even feel like going out of her room for the past few days since the defeat of Maledict which was rumored to be the fusion of a Magni named Seagus and his demon. She only went out to do the essentials like eating and going to the bathroom. Actually she wouldn’t have had the energy to do those things as well, but her demon Luciana made sure to force her to get up and at least take care of herself.

Luciana wasn’t sure why Aberdeen was acting the way that she was. She figured that Aberdeen was probably being her usual depressed self when she felt useless. Aberdeen had at times complained about how she was a pointless figure in battle, offering a shitty plan, having powers that only attracted the monster to herself, and worse of all, not having the strength to save anyone. Connor had died, Melody was almost killed, Kieran and Jaxon had to use a lot of strength, and everyone else had been ensnared by the tentacles, and what did Aberdeen do? Nothing. Just stand there confused and frozen. Lucy knew what Aberdeen would do when she would be depressed so she had to make sure Aberdeen didn’t self harm herself; however she couldn’t stop her all the time. Sometimes, Aberdeen would grab her fighting knife and carve symbols she had read about in books that would bring her death. Her scars were still there on her arms, but she hid them and forced Luciana not to inform the nurses of her addiction to self injury. Other times Aberdeen would grab some of her disposable rag dolls that each resembled her likeness and abuse them by slitting their throats, punching them like crazy, gouging their eyes out, and other horrible deeds. She would say ”Okay I can’t hurt myself, I’ll just hurt the “other me’s” and continue her abuse. Lucy was lost by her Magni’s silence and violence. However, this time she decided to speak.

“I can’t do capture the flag…I’m useless in that game for any team,” Aberdeen said pessimistically while lying down on her stomach.

”Sure you can Abby. You love capture the flag! You would use your invisibility when no one was looking to secretly grab the flag and make it look like someone else did,” Luciana said reminiscing the times she saw her Magni happy.

”That was when everyone was normal and I wasn’t. Here everyone is talented and I’m…I’m just weak compared to everyone else,” Aberdeen said with eyes downcast.

”Abby! Sure everyone here has talents but so do you! I know you think you cannot do much but you gotta have confidence in yourself!”

Aberdeen couldn’t take it anymore. Lucy kept on trying to keep her happy but Aberdeen just couldn’t believe she would be any good because of what had happened. She couldn’t contain the secret reason why she had been in a slump this whole time and burst out.

”LUCY I CAN’T BECAUSE I COULDN’T PROTECT MOM, DAD, or GRANDMA OKAY!!?!?”

At this point, Aberdeen covered her face with her pillow and started crying. Tears kept streaming from her eyes as she recounted the phone call she received from her cell phone.




~A FEW DAYS AGO~

Aberdeen heard her cell phone ring in the tone “Symposium Magarum” thinking how ominous sounding it is for what had transpired. She decided she would change it to a happier tone later and for now decided answering it. Her mother’s name appeared on the screen of her phone and she wondered whether her parents had found out about the city’s destruction.

”Hello?” Aberdeen asked.

“Is this Aberdeen Andrews?” A man’s voice said.

Aberdeen was confused as to why someone else was on the phone. It didn’t even sound like her dad or anyone else she’d know. She wasn’t sure whether to say yes but she figured that they wouldn’t be able to find her anyway if she was in the Liuena barrier. Speaking of which, phone calls seem to still work within it.

“Y-Yes, this is Aberdeen Andrews. What do you want with me?”

“My name is Dr. Sanders. We’re sorry to inform you, Aberdeen, but your parents are in the hospital in serious condition and your grandmother Alma…passed away last night.”

Aberdeen froze in her place with her sight seemingly fading in and out. She couldn’t believe what this man was saying. She slammed the front door shut and locked it, then finally asked, “How…?”

“Your family was in the city while it happened. I don’t know the details but it seemed that your grandmother was crushed in the large debris and your parents were knocked down and unconscious. They haven’t woken up yet…we’ll keep tabs on them and inform you if they do but it might be awhile. They are being treated in St. Michael’s Hospital and-“

Aberdeen pressed the end call button and hung up. She didn’t want to see anyone…not even her parents and just sat in her room all day crying.




After crying for a long while, Aberdeen explain to Lucy the phone call. Luciana listened faithfully to her Magni and behind her mask she expressed much grief over her loss. Lucy then tried to convince Aberdeen by saying, “Abby how is it your fault?”
“If I was strong enough…if I somehow had those seeing powers that Alma told me she had…I could’ve predicted they would go to the city and be in danger. I could’ve warn them… or I could’ve protected them! If only…”

Suddenly the air in the room began to stir and turn freezing cold. Aberdeen shivered in her spot hugging herself to keep warm while Lucy stayed in front of her on her guard.

“Abby, I feel an ominous presence, watch out!”

Aberdeen stayed on her toes trying to sense and see the presence. It was really really strong, as though there were multiple spirits in her room. She could hear them chanting something to her.

“Vengeance….Vengeance…Kill for the Vengeance…”

“What do you want from me??” Aberdeen yelled.

”Use your vengeance…kill for vengeance…”

Suddenly Aberdeen felt dizzy and fainted, the world above her turning black. She did see a familiar three familiar people: Connor, Grandma Alma, and the ghost girl in white.




When Aberdeen awoke, she wasn’t in her room anymore but in a different room that had medical equipment. Aberdeen was confused as to why she was in here because she doesn’t remember even getting out of her room. She tried to get up but something was on top of her. She threw whatever it was off of her and took a closer look. Aberdeen gasped upon looking at Seagus who was unconscious and bleeding on his arms. She listened to his breathing hoping that he was still alive, and upon hearing faint breaths coming out of his mouth Aberdeen relaxed a bit. Looking closer at his arms, Aberdeen noticed Japanese symbols carved in his arms (here). She wondered what the symbols meant and who carved them on there. Realizing she was holding something she looked at her hands and was shocked to find herself holding her fighting knife covered in blood! Not only that, her arms were also with new cuts that were closer to her hands than her previous ones. They had the same symbols as Seagus did on his arm. Aberdeen freaked out looking left and right trying to figure out if anyone has or would see her like this.

”Did I do this!?! Wha…what happened!?!?”

Aberdeen looked around the room and saw two disks that were broken next to Seagus and the room in disarray as though a struggle had occurred. She didn’t want to be caught like this with her bloody knife and unconscious Seagus, so she decided to run for it. Aberdeen found some bandages and wrapped her arms so that the bloody message wouldn’t be seen. She didn’t wrap Seagus because she figured they would notice something like that right away and she wouldn’t want to leave prints to her. ”Prints!” Aberdeen thought. What if I touched something?? Aberdeen began to get a cloth and started wiping Seagus, the disks, the area of the floor she was lying on, cabinets she opened to get the supplies, and random objects that were disturbed. She didn’t think she’d get to all of them but she tried her best. Afterwards she used the cloth to wipe her bloody knife, wrapped the bloody cloth with another, and placed it inside her pocket tightly in so that no one would notice. She then sheathed her knife and turned invisible and intangible in case she happened to bump into someone. Aberdeen rushed to her room as silently as possible. When she got to her bed she closed her door and collapsed on her bed, trying to act casual as she wondered what the hell just happened.

Seagus woke up to find the very room around him was trashed, as well as the equipment smashed. What had happened? Seagus stood up, the weight of his body almost crushing his frail and feeble legs. He looked over at a glass panel. For the first time he saw for himself what he really was: weak. He could barely walk, his body was lead, and the very air around him felt heavy. 'Malice, Malice, I need you!' "I'm right here!" Seagus fell over but was caught by to pitch black, feminine arms of none other than Malice, his demon partner. Her white hair, which she had tied into a ponytail, moved even without wind. She hoisted Seagus up and then onto a seat. "Wow, you're ligth a feather now. How do you feel?" 'Horrible...' "Obviously. You weren't supposed to come out of there for a little while." Then she felt his upper torso to assess the damage. She withdrew her hands in shock at what she found, then she looked down sadly and shook her head. 'Malice...' "I'm sorry Seagus. I really am. I...I can't help but feel that I did this to you..." 'Hey! We're not going to make any progress with sulking. We can grieve for what happened after we get t o the bottom of this.' "You're right." She sighed in resignation. "You're always right." 'C'mon, I need your help. I feel horrid.' Malice helped hoiste Seagus halfway onto her back and they set out to find Doctor Banks. That's when Seagus noticed two things: The marks on his arm, and the security cameras in the lab. Maybe...

((Okay, I've got my spring rolls, I've got my soda, time to hunker down and stop excusing myself))


Opal King


Opal stood off the side, slightly away from the rest of her team. Her eyes darted over the arena, looking for areas where adding or subtracting gravity would be the most helpful- rings of lighter and heavier gravity around her team's flag, so getting through to actually capture the flag would be difficult, things like that. Though, in all honesty, only half her mind was on winning the game. She couldn't help thinking about everything that had happened. It had ended well enough, but the whole school had suffered a blow. Conner was dead- and even though Opal hadn't known much of him, that was horribly sad-, Ella had a few crushed ribs, but was otherwise okay and healing, and Aberdeen hadn't so much as come out of her room in days. Opal had long decided to leave her be, but Ella would hobble from the med room to check in with Lucy. From what Opal understood, Abby wasn't good. Though, Opal knew she had to leave her be for a while- she would come around.

"So, what are we going to do to win?" she asked just loud enough for her team to hear as she turned to face them. "I can set up rings of gravity around our flag so it is hard to get to, or set up circles of it like traps," she offered, but her voice was only half in it. She was still pumped to win and compete, but it wasn't worth it to her to act like what happened didn't affect her in any way. She could have died, Ella could have died, and someone did die. It was surprising she was able to function without freaking out at the slightest painful thing.

Ella chose that moment to climb up her shoulder and rub against her cheek. "So the medic said I was almost healed and I could participate instead of just watching! Isn't that wonderful!" Ella said as she stroked her fur, brushing the sticky remnants of caramel candy from her muzzle. The medic had left a tray of them on the table for a student injured in a chemical spill during a demonstration in class, and Ella had gobbled all of them up before the poor boy had noticed.

Opal shook her head, coming out of her trance. "Great! We will crush the other team now!" Opal exclaimed while holding her arm out so Ella could climb down it. Once she did, Opal snuggled Ella close to her chest while being careful to not crush her ribs.

Just after defeating the monster known as Maledict he fells to his knees right in front of the beast and was smiling to himself as the beast had started screaming to itself. "N…NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! I…MUST…EXIST!! IT’S WHY I’M HERE!!!!" But the thing that startled him was that the monster had started acting... Human. The thing had started talking to itself, in what seemed to be two completely different voices. Sitting there confused Jaxon stood up only to have a building come crashing down on him from the beam of energy that came from the now defeated monster. Just after this though he came to stand on his feet tired and still quite determined to fight but then he saw the boy inside the beast. The boy had such sorrow in his eyes. "H-Hey I knew it, you were human but..... how?" Before he could get an answer out he was smacked in the stomach with a wall of pure shadow. "U-ugh..." Shaking his head he looked at the collapsed building to see a giant burst of blue fire and flash warped back to see the destruction. “Someone…help!” 'What? A woman? What's she doing out here?... Wait she has that boy on his back.. His demon I'm guessing.' Shaking his head he went down into the crater and helped her with the now decrepit boy and sighed heavily. "You're an enemy but I can tell he's still alive and suffering heavily. The others might hate you but for me, you're just another boy and his demon. Now that said let's get him out of here and to where he'll be safe from harm and get medical attention alright?"

Three Days Ago
After arriving back at the academy with their enemy, Jaxon had been getting looks from both his classmates and those who had heard of the fight. Some were glares and others were looks of confusion but it was all the same to Jaxon: unneeded attention. As time went by with classes Jaxon just lost more and more focus to the idea of going to this school and was leaning more towards just skipping his classes until his magic classes began. Upon reaching his magic classes, he found that everyone had.... changed to say the least.

Sadly after class Jaxon couldn't sleep and found himself with a notebook writing out entire equations in it, some that didn't even make sense unless either read backwards, upside down, or even just piecing it around. Shaking his head Jaxon looked at the sleeping Kirie and pulled out a note from his nightstand and started writing out a small memo to himself and put it back in the nightstand. "Seems Sparky can conk out like a light but here I am unable to sleep at all... I feel watched is that normal Tama... Tama?" Looking down he also saw that the little tomcat was out cold as well. "Just great it's just me awake in this entire school... and we're not allowed to leave the dorms until morning as well." Sighing heavily he started his notes again in the notebook to be undisturbed.

The next day had been just as productive as the first one was but he decided to go to his classes only to find that like always, there was never any real challenge for him as studying has always been his forte. Upon getting to his class with the others he noticed that Aberdeen and Melody were gone yet again. "Feh... At least I had the decency to show up..." After saying this he silently started back to his notebook of many equations and started writing in it again.

On the final day before the game he didn't bother showing up and was sitting in his room now writing on the walls of the dorm room, complex algorithms and theories now littering every page of the notebook. "Tama... How many days has it been since I've slept?" "Uh... since we got back so.... this would be the third day Jax." ".... Alright just checking, I'm still within healthy parameters for sleep." Shaking his head he then pulled out the notebook and back at the walls. "Nope I got the 7th line of code mixed up with the 8th.... With that I'd need.... That's it! I forgot the imaginary numbers!" Upon reaching this conclusion he quickly scrawled on the wall what he needed opened his nightstand pulling out the note. "There we go, I'll leave this on the door so Kirie won't touch my masterpiece. Upon pinning the note to the door Jaxon passed out heavily on his bed.

Note to all Yoctograms: Any who enter this room do not touch any of the equations on the wall, floor, or notebooks. These notes were needed for the possibility of intra-dimensional travel of multiple beings by way of slip space. This testing will need for me to be at full strength so...
1. Do not disturb my sleep.
2. If it is entirely important get Tama to wake me up.
3. Upon reading this note for the CtF game, I will show up but will not participate.

Signed but not dated, Jaxon Rhys

After sitting around in her room for some while, Aberdeen got up hearing her stomach growl.

“Hmm I’m hungry. I think I’m going to get some grub. But where’s Lucy?”

Aberdeen couldn’t believe she was acting calm after what had happened but she dismissed it as just some scary dream that she didn’t want to believe. She hoped that it wasn’t real.

Aberdeen looked inside her closet, her trunk, and under her bed, but no sign of Lucy. Come to think of it, she remembered hearing Lucy warn her but she never saw Lucy in her “dream” again. Aberdeen decided to check her backpack even though Lucy was a bit too big to fit in there. Who knows, she’s a shadow. Instead of finding Lucy however, a book titled, “The Ghost Hunter’s guide” Aberdeen’s eyes widened and she put her hand to her mouth as she gasped. “Oh crap!!! I forgot to pay for this! Ahh…what the heck do I do??” Aberdeen panicked in her room a bit remembering that she slipped the book in her backpack during the fight with Maledict.

After opening her door, looking if anyone heard her, and hten shutting it again, Aberdeen decided to look inside the book again. “Hah, I already have this book and the city is in shambles. I guess I have an excuse to keep this thing!” Aberdeen thought excited with having a ghost hunting guide. Opening the book, she saw it was divided into sections. Chapter One was on The Basics to Ghost Hunting, Chapter Two was on weaponry, Chapter three was on Locations, and so on. Aberdeen skimmed to the lists of known ghosts section and read the names of known ghosts in the area until something glowing caught her eye. Golden letters glowed on top of a page in the book that said, “Only a spirit magni is capable of seeing the rest of this book.”

Aberdeen’s eyes focused on the words and scrunched her eyebrows in curiosity wondering how a book from a human store would contain knowledge of the magni, let alone a spirit one such as herself. She read on and saw more monstrous and powerful ghosts with pictures of cloaked figures emitting some sort of energy towards them, harming the creatures. “Are those…spirit magni?” Aberdeen wondered. She was getting a bit excited reading the book and hoped that it had some pointers for her. Suddenly she saw a familiar name and she turned back to the page to read, “The Vengeance.” Aberdeen recalled the “dream” once more and remembered that the voices were telling her to “kill for the Vengeance.” She suddenly closed the book not wanting to read anymore. “This can’t be real…it can’t be…” Aberdeen didn’t want to believe it and put her hands to her eyes, but just as she was about to cover them, she realized there were bandages on her arms and remembered the scene of her hurrying to cover up Seagus’s harm and the carvings and the thrashed room. Aberdeen fell back shouting, “No..No!! I didn’t…I didn’t mean to..” when Lucy entered the room intangible to the door and hugged Aberdeen.

”Abby, I was so worried about you!”

”Lucy what’s happening to me? Am I…am I becoming a killer??”

”What are you talking about Abby?”

Aberdeen then told Luciana everything that happened. Lucy’s eyes were worried behind her mask but she did her best to remain calm and nodded to show that she was listening. Lucy couldn’t believe what sort of black magic her own Magni was in and wondered how to solve this problem. What was the Vengeance and why did it choose Aberdeen?

”You said that the Vengeance was mentioned in the book that you got from the store three days ago?” Lucy asked.

“Yeah, it mentioned the Vengeance but I didn’t look further into it.”

”We should give it a read and see if we can find out what this is. Maybe there’s some way we can get rid of it!”

Aberdeen was reluctant but she knew she would have to open the book again to solve this mystery. She was about to agree when her stomach rumbled again louder this time. Aberdeen turned red and then became invisible, on purpose this time.

”You must be starved Aberdeen. Come on we have to get you something to eat. Let’s go to the cafeteria. We can read there as well.”

Aberdeen agreed and they both walked towards the cafeteria wondering what food would be available at this time since the other magni were playing their game. Suddenly they heard banging noises followed by the sound of multiple items crashing downward. Aberdeen stopped in her tracks and wondered if it was the Vengeance again or if someone was there. She looked at Lucy asking in her mind if they should turn invisible just in case and Lucy agreed. They both closed their eyes and focused on invisibility and soon they were each invisible. Aberdeen made sure to quietly tiptoe inside the cafeteria hoping not to wake anyone and was shocked at what she saw. Seagus was sleeping on one of the tables and a ball of energy was flying around. ”Oh no, it’s Seagus and his demon Malice! What do I do??” Aberdeen was relieved that she was invisible but she knew that if she wasn’t careful someone could hear her. As if on cue, her stomach growled loudly and Aberdeen grabbed her stomach trying to make it quiet. ”Ahhh shut up stomach!! This isn’t the time!” Aberdeen tried to make a run for it but she tripped on one of the cans of soda and became visible again.

“Uhh…hi…er…Malliiiice?” Aberdeen said hesitantly trying to sound calm but coming out as nervous. “I don’t suppose…you have anything to eat?” Aberdeen asked thinking, ”What the hell are you doing??? Get out of there!!” She hoped she wouldn’t wake Seagus up as her arms started burning in pain. Aberdeen held her arms tightly trying to calm the burning sensation but not succeeding. She tried to maintain a calm face but she couldn’t help but flinch when the pain got even more intense.

Malice quit flying in circles as soon as soon as someone appeared as if from thin air. Malice, already in a state of complete panic, fainted and dropped to the floor in a loud CLACK! Due to the floor being slightly off balance, she rolled towards Seagus, who was beginning to wake up. 'Malice?' He slowly sat up as he stopped the ball rolling with is foot. Malice was extremely light in her ball form, even for his distrophied musculature. Hoisting her into his lap, he shook his head. 'You're such a ham...' Then he saw the girl. He waved before remembering he couldn't talk. HE found a puddle of dark soda that Malice had spilled in a rage of panic and he dipped his finger into it and wrote his name on a nearby napkin. Holding it up to the girl, he held out his hand in a hand shake gesture, then Malice woke up. She flew straight up knocking over Seagus. "Seagus! Seagus where are you?! Seagu- oh..." She transformed into her human form and helped him up and looked at the girl with curiosity at first and then, after sitting Seagus down. "What's the big idea?! Is this your idea of a good time?! Scaring us both to death? Who do you think you are?!" Malice, when angered, spoke very quickly and walked up to the girl and poked her chest as if she was truly offended. Seagus threw the girl a facial expression that suggested that Malice meant no harm. It's just the way she is. 'Again, what a ham.' As soon as the thought connected, Malice ended her barrage on the girl and turned around. "Hey! Stay out of this!" Seagus smirked and Malice began arguing with Seagus. To most, it would appear that Malice was going completely psycho bitch mode due to the fact that Seagus couldn't speak out loud. After about five minutes, Seagus held up a soda can and Malice devoured it like a bloodthirsty animal. Then, licking her fingers, she turned to the girl. "You didn't even tell us your name and you want food? Hmph, don't think so...Seagus!" Seagus walked towards the girl and handed her a Hershey's bar he picked up from Malice's wreckage. Then he beamed as Malice grumbled, shook her head, and eventually let a smile appear. That's when another girl, who had blonde hair, entered the room and Seagus waved to her as well, not noticing the strange look in the girl's eyes next to him. Malice took a defensive position between them, just in case.

Arya definitely wasn't expecting the scene that greeted her. Assorted junk food, candy, and opened soda cans littered the cafeteria, large puddles of the fizzy beverages strewn among the wreckage of what Arya assumed to be several vending machines. The place was nearly empty, save for three others; a raven-haired boy holding a chocolate bar stood next to a girl with long indigo hair, and near the two... well, it looked like a 'she', though with its ink-black skin and contrasting white hair, Arya doubted that it was human.

"Er... Uh..." Arya grunted, grasping for words. What... What is that thing? she wondered.

"Am I... interrupting something?" She finally managed, her words hesitant and choked with nervousness.

Arya thought of walking back out, but quickly decided against it That would only make me look more foolish than I probably already do.

She tried to nonchalantly look around the room, but her gaze kept coming back to the strange black-skinned creature. Curiosity overpowering her fear, she mustered up her courage and approached the white-haired entity hesitantly. "U-um... W-what are you?" she asked, her voice coming out in little more then a squeak of nervousness.

((OOC: Just so you know, this is Arya's first encounter with a Demon. Actually, this is her first encounter with any non-human entity. Haha, just imagine what she'd do if she met Amon. :) ))

Once the game had started, Opal gave a friendly smile so her teammates and ran over to an area of the field she assumed most people would ignore- it was away from the flag and away from the action that would be in the middle of the field, at least. She carefully focused herself and set up the rings she talked about around her teams flag, as well as a few larger circles further out. She honestly hoped she appeared calm- that's what she was trying to do at least. She didn't have a good opposition, so with a little luck the other team might figure they were allowing her to sit out. The only real evidence to the contrary would be her clenched fists and eyes that looked about ready to cut steal, but both of those could be put off as anger at her own team. Ella crawled up her leg onto her head, promoting an air of calm around Opal while she absentmindedly hummed a tune that Opal's mother sang fairly often when Opal was a child.

"I see the moon, the moon sees me, shining through the leaves of the old oak tree. Oh, let the light that shines on me
shine on the one I love. Over the mountain, over the sea, back where my heart is longing to be. Oh, let the light that shines on me, shine on the one I love. I hear the lark, the lark hears me singing from the leaves of the old oak tree. Oh, let the lark that sings to me sing to the one I love. Over the mountains, over the sea back where my heart is longing to be. Oh, let the lark that sings to me
sing to the one I love."
" Ella stopped humming half way through and began singing, causing Opal to giggle and swat at her.

"You really aren't helping, Ells. You're about to put me to sleep!" Opal said, losing her concentration for a moment and letting one of the outer rings fall. She caught it soon enough, though, and fixed it back, still swatting at Ella every few moments, who was jumping and sliding down Opal's back in an attempt to get away from her. Ella jumped down just as Opal shook herself to remove the pesky red panda, and Ella rolled her eyes before rubbing her paw on Opal's leg. "The ground is very dirty today. I like spending the least amount of time I can on it. If you don't want me to help, I'm just going to check on Lucy and Abby. Maybe an update on her will calm you down enough to not cause your hands to lose circulation.

"That would be wonderful, Ells!" Opal said, jumping up and down. Maybe Abby would be better. Ella smiled and scuttled off the field, leaving Opal to concentrate.

Ella rushed through the doors of the room, fully intent on going to Aberdeen's room, but she stopped when she saw a sign for the cafeteria. "I wonder if they have caramel squares?" she thought before smiling lightly and turning that way, running right into the doors. The first thing she saw was a creature, a demon like herself, and a figure who seemed very week. Aberdeen was there too, as well as a girl she didn't know, so Ella to the path of least resistance and ignored them all, rushing right up to Aberdeen and rubbing against her leg like a cat. "Good to see you up and about" she said before getting a closer look at the demon figure and the man with it. Realization hit her like a brick, and she just about jumped behind Aberdeen. "What are you doing here!? You could have killed me, or worse, Opal!" she shouted, peering out and looking at the pair evilly. Then, of course, Ella noted the chocolate bar in Aberdeen's hand and looked at Seagus again. "I'll ignore you for now" with that, she turned to Abby and looked at her. "Good to see you eating. I've been very worried, and so has Opal" she said truthfully before looking at the new girl, deciding she was no threat, and turning back.

Malice perked up at a question. It was THE question to spring an entrance to. "What am I? I...am...awesoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooome!" She was standing on a table with both hands in the air in a hugely dramatic display. Then, Malice look a deeper look at the girl. 'I don't think...she's seen a demon before, Malice.' Malice turned back to Seagus. "Seriously?" 'Yeah, I think you should answer her questions if she has any.' Malice pouted. "What so I'm under the microscope now? What are you playing Seagus? Why can't you...oh...right..." Malice covered her mouth with her hands as she looked at Seagus' x shaped scar directly above what used to be vocal chords. 'Geez, it's okay, Malice. I doubt you're the only one here who'll make that mistake. Seriously. And I'm not playing at anything.' Seagus started grinning in a smirkish way. 'I just thought you liked to be...interviewed?' Malice's eyes widened and she had a cheesy smile on her face. Then it turned into a pout. "Like she seriously wants to know that much about me. I know I'm awesome but still, she doesn't look too interested to meet me." Malice walked over to the girl. She was 3 inches from her face, examining the Magni. "And, just who are you?" 'Ham.' "HEY!"

Seagus looked to both the red panda and the girl he gave the chocolate bar to. 'Oh right, they were...there.' Seagus begin to slightly convulse from the memories. They were harsh ones. They also threw his powers out of whack, at least the ones not sealed. 'Mal-Malice...I need..' Seagus fell to his hands and knees and began coughing up blood and pieces of organs. 'No...not here...' Malice, who was having a conversation with the new girl (OCC: if one is occurring), ran over and lifted her Magni onto a bench in the cafeteria. Malice looked at him sadly, but he shook his head. 'Its over now. I'm okay.' For once, Malice was quiet. "But...you...you just worry me sometimes, ok? Don't do that..." 'That's right...you can feel everything through the bond.' "You need to let that go Seagus..." 'I can't. Not after what I.' Another coughing fit, and more blood was spread onto the floor again. "Just relax, okay? Don't push yourself right now." Seagus could feel her concern for him. It was almost as bad as her pity. He smiled. 'Don't worry, there's gotta be at least one person who can patch me up here. You'll see.' With that Malice noded slowly and turned back into her true form, the ball of darkness. She sadly flew around her Magni, hoping that she could help him further.

Aberdeen just stayed put observing Malice dropping to the floor making a huge clanking sound that rang out of the cafeteria. Just as she rolled and touched Seagus, Seagus opened his eyes and slowly sat up, stopping the rolling ball of shadow. After holding Malice, he turned to look at Aberdeen and waved. Aberdeen could only give back a blank stare and turn her head to the side in curiosity as Seagus dipped his finger into a dark puddle of soda and wrote his name on a napkin.

“Okay I was right it is Seagus…the guy that—“

Aberdeen’s thoughts were interrupted by the handshake gesture and Malice’s antics.

”So she has a human form I see,” Aberdeen thought. ”Who do you think I am? Who do you think you are to act so cocky when you—“

Malice came up and poked her chest, making Aberdeen’s eyes widen and clench her fists ready to attack her or the nearest thing around her. Seagus’s expression however assured her that Malice was probably just being herself like Lucy was a natural stalker and creepy. Suddenly Malice began to make odd gestures of anger to Seagus while he made facial expressions as though in communication. Aberdeen then assumed they were talking via mind like she and Lucy do, only more secretive. After five minutes Malice drank Seagus’ offered soda and then turned to Aberdeen yelling, “You didn’t even tell us your name and you want food? Hmph, don’t think so…Seagus!”

Aberdeen didn’t wish to speak. She only stared cross, not that she was very angry but she was trying to hide her stomach’s hunger and hoped that she wouldn’t growl. What shocked her was when Seagus walked to her and handed her a Hershey’s bar. Aberdeen took it and stared down into it, not noticing the blonde haired girl that walked in until she spoke, “Am I…interrupting something?” Aberdeen turned to the blonde haired girl already feeling uncomfortable and looking towards her with as much seriousness as she could. She would’ve clenched her fists but she didn’t want to ruin the chocolate bar, so she decided to vigorously take a huge bite out of it. Hungry Aberdeen also meant an angry Aberdeen and Aberdeen didn’t want to be either one right now.

After a huge bite, Aberdeen suddenly felt fur rubbing up and down her leg making her shudder. She looked down and saw Ella the red panda who greeted her, “Good to see you up and about.”Aberdeen’s cold stare turned to a slightly warmer smile and calmer eyes as she looked at the perky little panda. At first Ella growled at Seagus and Malice saying they might kill her or Opal, but then she calmed down and looked at Aberdeen again.

“Good to see you eating. I’ve been very worried, and so has Opal,” Ella said. Aberdeen then crouched down to pet Ella’s head as Lucy suddenly appeared from her invisibility and floated towards her. “Uhhh….nngg… El…lll..aa… Lucy….m..iis…” Lucy “hugged” Ella with shadowy extensions of herself and put her face..err mask.. to Ella’s head rubbing it enthusiastically. Lucy's mind however was also thinking about the newcommer. She smiled and said via mind to Ella, "Look there at the blondie.. she my knew stalking friend...hehe... wanna join? It'll be fun to scare her." While Lucy was enjoying her time with Ella, Aberdeen looked downcast thinking, ”Ella and Opal…worried about me? What am I going to tell them about what just happened to me?” Aberdeen then realized she had her one bite chocolate bar that she hadn’t finished yet so as she observed another Seagus, Malice, and unknown blonde interaction she chewed down on her chocolate bar, happy that her stomach had something rather than nothing in it.

When Malice asked the girl who she was, Aberdeen stood up and turned to the light haired girl thinking, ”Wait they don’t know who she is? What the hell is she doing here then?”Aberdeen looked cross at the girl and inspected her: long strawberry blonde hair, sapphire blue eyes, thin, ivory, fragile, and…no demon. She continued to stare her down, not caring whether it was rude or not for she was highly suspicious of her. “No demon yet she’s able to cross that barrier and find this place? She looks older than me too. Then again I didn’t meet Lucy very young either…”

Her thoughts continued until she heard falling and coughing. Aberdeen turned her attention to Seagus and gasped wide eyed putting her hands over her hand as she watched Seagus cough up blood and organs. She froze and stayed where she was horrified. ”This…this wasn’t my fault right?? Wha…what’s happening to him?!”
Lucy snapped Aberdeen out of her fright when she tapped her shoulder and said via mind, “You can redeem yourself. He needs help.”

Agreeing that Lucy was right, Aberdeen spoke up and said with an urgent sound to her voice, “Lucy, Ella, you two go and find help! I think I heard of some doctor taking care of him or something.”

After Lucy and Ella left, Aberdeen stood a bit away from Seagus who was on a bench in the cafeteria. She took a close look at Seagus and noticed that he had an X shaped scar on the top of his upper throat, where vocal chords are located. “Ahh…I see… can’t speak can you?” Aberdeen thought. She wasn’t sure what she should do, but she didn’t want to move him, fearful that it would cause his condition to worsen. Suddenly Aberdeen started having flashes of the Vengeance ghost once again and she crouched to the floor, hands at her ears, trying to block out the sound of it telling her, “Kill for vengeance… let him rot and taste your vengeance…” “No…I..I don’t want to…I don’t want to kill him… please no…” Aberdeen whispered. She slowly stood up again trying to ignore the howls of the ghosts that only she could hear, and asked Malice, “What’s happening to Seagus? Should I try and um…put his organs back?” Aberdeen asked not knowing what to do exactly. She grunted in pain coming from her arms as she slowly turned to the onlooker and said in monotone, “Stay here and help. Freaked out? Your problem.”

"What am I? I...am...awesoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooome!" The creature replied, drawing out the last word with a dramatic hand gesture.

Well, that's not exactly the response I was expecting... Arya chuckled silently, watching as the creature turned, apparently having some sort of one sided conversation with the raven-haired boy, whom the creature referred to as 'Seagus'. Hmm.. Some sort of telepathic bond, perhaps?

"Do you have a name? Who are you?" Arya asked the creature. "The name's Arya, by the way."

Arya glanced back at the black haired boy, wondering at the exact relationship between the two, when she noticed the x-shaped scar across his throat. He must not be able to speak; that must be why he's been silent this whole time. she realized.

Out of the corner of her eye, Ayra noticed a red haired panda approaching the indigo haired girl, wrapping around her leg and chatting with her quietly.

What IS it with all these creatures around here? What a weird place. Arya thought, closing her eyes briefly and rubbing her temples.

An all-too-familiar sound yanked Arya out of her reprieve, her eyes flying open in shock. That sound. She knew that sound. The boy, Seagus fell to the floor, coughing harshly.

Just like me... Arya couldn't help thinking. Memories of her battles with tuberculosis -and that same harsh cough, came flooding back to her, but she pushed them away, rushing over to the boy, who had been placed on a bench by the white-haired creature, whom Arya had learned was called Malice.

Another coughing fit wracked the boy, this time, spewing blood and...are those... parts of organs? she wondered incredulously. This defied all basic medical knowledge; you can't survive without your organs! What the hell IS this kid? He should be dead right now! Arya shook her head. Grah! I've gotta stop thinking about this and DO something, or he WILL be!

Arya thought she heard someone else, possibly the other girl who was here talking to her, but she couldn't be sure, she was already too wrapped up in the situation. Quickly, Arya dug through the pockets of the sweatshirt she was wearing, until she found what she needed. She tore open a small package of alcohol wipes and swabbed the boy's arm with one. Brandishing a syringe filled with an ocher colored liquid, she unceremoniously jabbed it into the teen's arm.

"There..." she murmured, half to herself. "That should stabilize him for now, but..." she looked up, only half surprised at Malice, who had somehow transformed into a small, black ball. "Malice! Is there an infirmary around here somewhere? He should be okay for right now, but he needs medical attention!" Arya shook her head slightly, wondering how he he could even be alive.

Look there at the blondie.. she my knew stalking friend...hehe... wanna join? It'll be fun to scare her." Lucy thought through her connection to Ella, causing her to smile and nod. "Of course" she thought back as smiled as much as a red panda could. Around that time, however, Seagus collapsed and began to cough, causing Ella to shudder. Lucy seemed to be talking to Aberdeen for a moment before Aberdeen nodded and told the two of them to find a nurse.

Ella nodded and scuttled off, winding her way through the halls. Her small feet ment she wasn't very fast, but she was trying her best. Eventually, they reached the nurse's quarters and Ella jumped up on the table, causing the middle-aged woman behind the counter to gasp, her demon (a small white ghost-like creature with glowing eyes that could cut off the mind so you didn't feel pain for a while) patting her on the shoulder to calm her down.

"There is a student in need of help in the cafeteria, miss. Please help- he looked to be spurting up organs and it was very frighting" Ella said in between heaves as she caught her breath. The nurse stood up immediately and took off to the cafeteria, Ella following after her and her demon.

Seagus wiped off his mouth and shuddered. 'Eh, could be worse.' Seagus stood up but Malice transformed back into her human form and pushed him back down into the seat. "Oh no you don't!" Seagus pouted at her but relented. 'Thwarted once again, it would appear.' "That's right! You're not leaving this spot." Malice turned to the girl who stabbed something into Seagus. "Sorry about all that. As for him being stable, you don't need to worry. Seagus' powers are keeping him alive. That's why he doesn't need his organs. True, its only temporary, but at least he's in much better shape now than a few days ago." Malice looked down at Seagus, who had looked up to see the nurse enter the cafeteria along with two other demons. The nurse came in and looked at Seagus. She squinted at him and shook her head. "It's like I'm looking at a corpse! I'm sorry to say this, young man, but I can't really do that much for you. I can let you rest in the infirmary if you'd like. However, I'll need to give you a physical as we-" "Hold it lady!" Shouted Malice, who was apparently back to her old self. "You are doing no such thing! I will not allow...wait, what's a physical?" "A physical examination. It'll tell me what's wrong with him." "He's coughing up organs. End of story." "That sounds like more of professor Banks' department. He's the head of both the science and medic criteria within this academy. I'm just the nurse in the clinic." She looked at Malice. "I think it would be best if we got him to the infirmary. AT least just to rest and regain a bit of his strength. He looks awful." Seagus sighed. 'Thanks for the encouraging judgment there, lady.' "Oh hush Seagus! I'm taking you to the infirmary." 'Aw, do I have to? I want to be free damnit!' Malice picked up Seagus onto her back and began walking after the nurse with him. "Yes, now shut it and enjoy the ride." Malice turned to the others in the room. "I like you two, so you guys can come along too. I'm curious about this "Physical" you humans have." With that, she kept carrying/dragging Seagus towards the nurse.

Hmm... his powers, huh? I wonder what kind of power he has? the teenager reflected silently, following Malice as she propelled Seagus towards the infirmary. I hope they don't crap out on him, then. Arya couldn't help but feel a pang of worry for the boy; after all, how much longer could he possibly use his powers for? Surely they had a limit.

Realizing that she had slowed, and was now slightly behind the pair, she began to walk faster, so that might catch up to the Demon and her Magni. "Hey," she wondered aloud, "the nurse back there said something about some Professor Banks. Ya think we should take Seagus to him?" she paused before voicing another thought, "Malice, why does Seagus look so... resistant? I mean, he does realize that we're taking him to somewhere where he'll get help, right?"

Arya fell silent; her words reminded her of something very similar said to her by one of the representatives that had come to try to persuade her into attending Liuena. She grinned wryly for a moment at the irony of the situation before her grin vanished, replaced with a frown. She couldn't help but remember... what she had did. The event that had forced her into the academy. She shivered.

They had entered the infirmary by now. Arya knew that with her pitiful strength she wouldn't be able to help Malice lift Seagus onto an exam table any time soon. Even so, she hovered nearby, uncertain.

"Oh CRAP!" Arya exclaimed, pounding her fist into her other hand for emphasis. "I'm supposed to be reporting to the headmaster right now!" In all of the excitement, she had forgotten the reason she entered the cafeteria for in the first place. "Malice, d'you know where the headmasters office is, by any chance?" she glanced down at Seagus, worry and concern plain in her face. Quieter, she asked, "Is he... do you think he's... gonna be all right?"

Aberdeen looked curiously on at Malice and Seagus as they continued to do some arguing and explanations. ”So his powers are what keeps him alive even in that state,” Aberdeen thought. ”He must’ve been really beat up after…that happened.”
She continued to look at Seagus worriedly until the nurse arrived with Lucy and Ella. The nurse seemed to be in disbelief looking at the poor boy with barely any organs. After some argument with Malice and the nurse, the group headed towards the infirmary. Aberdeen just followed silently, not knowing what to do in the situation but at the same time feeling a sense of responsibility over Seagus that she would stick around and at least make sure he was alright. She looked down at Ella and Lucy and whispered, “Hey, thanks guys,” giving them a small smile on her face.

The mystery girl then spoke up, wondering about Professor Banks and asking more about Seagus’ feelings and concerns, making Aberdeen groan and roll her eyes. Though in truth, those were sort of the same questions she was wondering herself. After they had entered the infirmary, Aberdeen signaled Lucy to help her, Malice, and the nurse lift Seagus onto the exam table gently to make sure he wouldn’t be stirred anymore. She knew she wasn’t the best at lifting but with multiple people helping the job was easier. Aberdeen couldn’t help but look cross at the blonde who just stared at the action. It irritated her that she’d ask all of these questions and yet not even help when it counted, but she held back her annoyance and just maintained her serious expression.

“Hey Ella shouldn’t you be with—“ Aberdeen was going to ask until the girl interrupted her with a loud “Oh CRAP!” pounding her fist into her hand. Aberdeen turned to look at her with an eyebrow raised up and a ‘What the hell do you want?’ look. “I’m supposed to be reporting to the headmaster right now!” ”What? Did you get in trouble or something? Oh wait…” Aberdeen lightly smacked her forehead feeling stupid. ”Gosh I’m dumb, you must be a new student. Hmm newbie..oh no don’t tell me I’m going to have to give up my newly acquired one occupant room! Damn it…” Aberdeen thought making a scrunched up look of anger at thought of having to share with a roommate, especially with a newbie. ”I better hide or burn all of those decapitated dolls before she finds them…”

After the new girl asked more questions, understandably worried about Seagus’ odd condition, Aberdeen continued her previous question to Ella. “Shouldn’t you be with Opal right now? I thought they were having a match?” Aberdeen felt horrible having to keep her depression and insanity from her newly acquired friend, but she didn’t want to frighten her or burden her, especially with this new Vengeance problem. Speaking of which, Aberdeen realized she didn’t even get to open the book or read since the cafeteria incident. She sighed, wondering what to do now. Seagus needs to be watched for physical examination, the newbie needs to go to the headmaster, Ella isn’t with Opal, and Aberdeen and Lucy need to figure out what the hell is going on with Vengeance.

Aberdeen then spoke up ignoring that the girl was addressing Malice, “Hey newbie, don’t worry he’s gonna be okay. He’s been through…a lot these past couple of days and he just needs rest.” Aberdeen then looked down at Ella asking, “Sorry to make you run all over the place, but could you take newbie here to the headmaster’s office? It should be close to the arena right? Can you make sure Opal is doing okay for me as well?” Aberdeen then reached into her pocket and grabbed a few caramel candies, unwrapping one of them and popping one into Ella’s mouth. She smiled remembering that it was hers—and now Lucy’s—favorite treat. “Here, make sure you save some for Opal okay?” Aberdeen turned to the new girl once more, still looking serious towards her, and said, “I’ll watch him…”



(If Arya does go with Ella, Lucy follows and this dialogue happens. If not just ignore this..)

”Abby, the new girl has a very nice face…can I keep it?” Lucy thought to Aberdeen, getting bored of the current mask she is wearing.

”Lucy, you know that you can’t just steal faces off of people!” Aberdeen turned and noticed Lucy wasn’t in the room and panicked. ”Hey!! Don’t steal her face please!!”

Lucy frowned behind her mask and sighed, ”Fine, but I get to stalk her for today.” With that thought, Lucy was again feeling content. She had found another person to creep with.




Aberdeen sighed and focused her gaze on Seagus lying there without any means to speak up. Despite what had happened a few days ago, she couldn’t believe what horrible shape he was in. Before the nurse began physical examinations, the nurse stared at the bandages around Aberdeen’s arms and asked, “What happened to you Ms. Andrews?”

Aberdeen quickly looked down at her arms and realized she hadn’t taken care to hide the bandages. She then glanced at Seagus but from her position she couldn’t really look at his arms well. She hoped that the nurse wouldn’t check there and notice the knife marks, but for now she had to answer the question directed to her. “Um, some slight abrasions during the um..’incident’ that happened a few days ago. That’s all. I don’t like looking at them so I wrapped them up.” The nurse seemed to look at her in disbelief, but seemed to believe it when she said, “Oh, I’m sorry.” When the nurse began the examinations, Aberdeen took care to sit far away and stare into her book, not wanting to peek at Seagus just in case, and wanting to finally find out what the hell is going on with her.

“Hey newbie, don’t worry he’s gonna be okay. He’s been through…a lot these past couple of days and he just needs rest.” Another voice interrupted Arya's thoughts. Turning towards the source, Arya found herself facing the girl that was with them in the cafeteria. She was just a little shorter than Arya herself, and about a year or two younger, with long dark hair and a light complexion.

The blonde stood there silent, watching as the indigo-haired teen instructed a red panda, which Arya had just noticed, to guide her to the headmasters office.

"Thanks," Arya smiled at the girl. "Oh, and it's Arya, not 'newbie,'" Arya informed the girl with a slight chuckle. Turning serious, Arya stared directly into the opposing girl's eyes. Something about them... Arya wasn't sure, but it was like she'd seen a ghost or something.

"Are you...alright?" Arya asked in a hushed tone.

She was suddenly struck by the stupidity of that question, and hurried to backtrack, "I-I mean... you just look sort of... freaked out, or something." Mentally, Arya facepalmed, 'freaked out or something?' REAL good, Arya, real good.

"Aggh, d-don't mind me, just... forget I said anything." Arya apologized, feeling like a complete and total idiot.

Hoping to avoid further embarrassment, she decided she should probably go before she said something stupid again. She left the infirmary, following the red panda, Ella, to the headmasters office. ((If Ella didn't lead her there, she found her way there herself))

Thanking her furry red guide ((or not)), she stood in front of a pair of grand, ornate doors. One of them, she noticed was slightly ajar. She was planning on knocking quietly, but as the knuckles of her hand collided with the wood of the door, it opened with a squeak. Inside were two men, a white haired, yet still somehow youthful looking man, and another man whom Arya assumed to me the headmaster. "Uh... Um...." Arya's nervousness returned. Finally, after several long moments of indecisiveness, she mentally steeled herself, and stepped -albeit rather timidly- into the room.

"I'm sorry to disturb you, but... uh, the man who well, 'escorted' me here said to go to the headmaster's office... is one of you the headmaster?" she asked, feeling rather foolish. That reminded her...

"Oh, um... sorry I was late, but when I went to the cafeteria to ask for directions, this guy named Seagus collapsed and started coughing up blood and, well, organs... he's in the infirmary now, though." Arya fell silent, still feeling rather embarrassed about the whole situation.

"Of course, Abby. Wouldn't want anyone getting lost" Ella smiled, turning to the girl, who was in the possess of saying Aberdeen looked freaked out. "Come along now," Ella said as she turned and walked outside of the room.

"Well, I suppose it wouldn't be against me to show you around a bit on the way," Ella said though a mouthful of caramel candy as she trotted alongside the girl, who had identified herself as Arya. Ella swallowed the candy and stepped ahead a few spaces, pushing her body against the door to the arena the game was going on in. She saw Opal on the sidelines, her eyes shut tight and her hands clenched in concentration. Ella pushed the door open a little ways more- just enough so Arya could see in.

"See the pink-haired one in the corner? I'm her demon. Her name is Opal," Ella smiled before looking around for anyone else she could identify. "That's Jayson, over there, and Jaxon. Then over there is Kirie," Ella pointed out the respective people before turning back to Arya. "You'll meet them later, I'm sure" she said and got back on track to the office, every so often saying something. It wasn't long before they got to the office, and Arya thanked Ella.

"Not a problem at all," Ella said as she walked away, back into the arena. She decided she wouldn't be a of much use, so she scuttled up onto the benches and resigned herself to watching the game.

After the physical, which it being a magic school made it ALOT different than what Seagus was prepared for, Seagus was sleeping in the bed after 10 minutes of wide eyed shock. Malice was watching Seagus in her human form and then sat in a chair before turning back into a ball. "Crap! Not this again!" Malice floated over to Seagus. "Seagus! Wake up! you're being boring!!!" She began flying around him trying to wake him up. "Fine." She sighed. "I guess you should be resting. I guess I'll just..." With that she flew over to the girl who helped hoist Seagus onto the bed. Malice flew right in front of her face. "Wassup?" After waiting for a reaction, Malice flew in a little circle in front of her. "Thanks for helping with Seagus. Hopefully, he'll get better. Although, truth be told. I don't think he'll stay in that bed for long. IT's likely Seagus will try to sneak out. That's just how he is. ALso I'm bored. Can we do something? I can't leave the room of course, but for God's sake I need something to do!!!!!!!!!!" Being a 3 inch wide ball of darkness with no hands, Malice lost much of her independence in this form. The nurse, overhearing Malice's quick anguish, got out a gopher ball. "Try this. A lot of the smaller demons enjoy it." "A ball? Lady are you trying to say I'm fat?" "Not at all, I'm merely making a suggestion. At least try it." Malice got into the ball, and the nurse sealed it closed. Malice began to slowly roll around in it. "Wow this is sooooo fun..." She said sarcastically. Then she went faster. And faster. And faster. "WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO" Then Malice went into the hallway and raced back and forth at a very high speed, tripping up of knocking down any magni or demon in her way. The nurse, now realizing her folly, face palmed. "What have I done." With the high speed sound of the gopher ball's friction against the floor as it race, It sounded like the plastic version of NASCAR. "What the hell!" "The fu-OOW!" "Son of a- OOMPH" as well as the thuds of victims, could be heard all throughout the hall as Malice continued her racing in the foot wide gopher ball.

Cassandra began running back towards the other end of the arena with the flag. About halfway there, a shield came flying as fast as an arrow. Cassandra couldn't dodge the damn thing as it hit her side and knocked several feet. Getting back up she raised Disturbix just in time to block the next careening impact. Cassa swung and struck Maelstrom as Mallory kept her larger sister on the defensive. Shit, Cassa thought. Mallory grinned as she jumped back and sent Maelstrom hurtling towards Cassa. Cassa jumps out of the way and throws Disturbix. Mallory, unable to pull back Maelstrom, is directly struck by the halberd. Cassa calls back Disturbix and grins, then laughs. Mallory smirks as she calls Maelstrom. Which was directly behind Cassa. Cassa gets knocked several feet by Maelstrom and is right in front of Mallory. Cassa looks at her with shock as she grins. "Fuck..." An explosion erupts as Messy detonates and Mallory holds the flag as Cassa is blown back into the wall. "Looks like I win, sis." Then Mallory stepped into a portal...

After saying hello to the young lady, Henry's blood ran cold upon hearing the name Seagus. The Infirmary! Thank God! After getting a nod from the headmaster, Henry bowed his head to the new student and ran off like a madman. He had to find him. It didn't take long to find the trail...blood and organs. He followed it to the infirmary. However, he was tripped up by...a ball? Landing with a thud, Henry got up only to be tripped up again. Running and jumping like a crazy psycho, Henry was able to dodge the booby trap of a demon and finally enter the infirmary. He sighed with relief upon seeing Seagus resting. He walked up to the nurse, who covered her mouth with her hands upon seeing the bruises on the doctor's face. "How is he?" "Alive...that's all I can say. "Good. I'll wait til he's awake." Henry sat down next to another student to catch his breath. "And who might you be?"

Luciana was having fun following Arya when she didn’t know it. She made sure to stay hidden in the shadows, trying to conceal herself from Arya and later on the headmaster who was discussing with her some interesting facts that she knew Aberdeen would be interested in. ”No demon yet…and a traumatic past involving her powers… poor girl…but it makes it even more fun to creep around her dreams. Perhaps I can find out more if I scope inside them.” Upon the mention of a map, Luciana thought it would be fun to find the map, bring it to her, and scare the new girl a bit. Shake her up for initiation. Without caring about the headmaster or Arya, Luciana opened the drawers of the room while still invisible, trying her best to find the desired object. Upon finding the map, Luciana slowly moved it towards Arya with her shadowy yet invisible hands, making it float eerily above her until it slowly descended towards Arya. Just when it was about to meet her face, Luciana went through the map and made her smiling white mask appear and moaned, hoping to accomplish some feat of fright.

Meanwhile, Aberdeen was busy reading about Vengeance when Malice popped up in front of her and made her gasp. Her eyes flew open wide as she dropped the book she was holding. She made sure to close it up and pick it up without Malice seeing the contents, feeling guilty that she was thanking her when she was the one that harmed Seagus. To Malice’s question, Aberdeen thought in her head, ”Maybe you could help me with this Vengeance thing. Hmm?” By the time Aberdeen thought of a real response, Malice was using a gopher ball and shouting in the hallway to which Aberdeen merely shook her head and sighed.
Then came another man who was very much taller than her and who seemed to be clothed in what fit to be for a doctor. “And who might you be?” he asked Aberdeen. She simply looked towards him with a blank expression and said, “Aberdeen.” She couldn’t stand anymore new people, so she decided to head out of the room and told the man, “I think you’re that Doctor…person they mentioned.” Pointing to Seagus she said, “Take care of him, or I’ll let you be Abby’s new face….no wait…her pillowcase would be nicer. And you do have some lovely material for some dolls…oh…I must be heading out..” Aberdeen said. She walked out of the building chuckling to herself about ways she can freak out newbie…or wait “Arya” when suddenly she felt very faint and collapsed on the floor.




In her dream, Aberdeen could see the game of capture the flag, with Kirie and Jaxon waiting on each other for someone to strike. Just as somebody was to move, the lights flickered on and off and an eerie wind howled throughout the stadium. Suddenly the flags started moving and flying towards the Magni, hitting some of them. After a few seconds the lights completely shut out with all the Magni inside confused. For some reason, she could see within Ms. Brumfield’s point of view now. Ms. Brumfield had some flashes of a girl being killed and a voice of a girl in her head whispering, “Why did you leave me to die?” Then Aberdeen saw herself, yet she did not look like herself. Aberdeen’s eyes were white and her skin was sickly pale. There were hands coming out from a darkness behind her trying to grab her and all she could do was scream, but it seemed it was in Ms. Brumfield’s voice.

She flashed again to the stadium and she could hear Ms. Brumfield shouting but she couldn’t see what was happening as the stadium was still pitch black. Suddenly the lights opened up again and Ms. Brumfield was lying on the ground in a pool of blood. Aberdeen could look at her arms and see them bleeding with the same characters Seagus had. Aberdeen wanted to go help Ms. Brumfield, warn the students, or do something, but she couldn’t move. She was forced to look and she couldn’t feel anything as though she had no body. A closer look made her realize the flags were missing and the walls were in a bloody writing with the words “Murderer,” and arrows pointing somewhere. Aberdeen could feel her body being forced to follow the blood trailed walls to Seagus in the infirmary being checked on. Finally she felt herself being whisked off to what looked like Kieran’s room, or at least the front of it. By the door, Aberdeen found the two flags and when put together they said, “Avenge your brother, or I shall do so myself.” Finally Aberdeen woke up outside, wondering if that was a dream, when she saw some of the bloody handwriting pointing in the direction she came from. She decided to run to Kieran’s room to see if the flags were really there.

The lights flickered and then shut off. Next thing Cassa knew, a woman, who she assumed was the teacher, was screaming as if the devil himself were upon her. Since Cassa was still discombobulated by Maelstrom hitting her, she was not at her full mental capacity, at least not to notice that something big had just happened. Dazed and slightly in pain, she walked around looking for Mal.

Mallory, who tripped over someone, landed face first on the flag she got from Cassa. It smelled…like feet?????? She botled right up and felt the flag…it was a fake. It was…Cassa’a dirty gym sock. Mallory squealed and crawled away backwards as if the sock was a zombie trying to eat her. “Eww Eww Eww Eww, dirty nasty! Cassa! That wasn’t funny!” Then she looked around as her sister approached her.” Um…what happened, Cassa?” “No idea. We should check for injured.” “Good idea.” With that, they both went around checking. They would take any injured to the infirmary.

Banks continued to watch as Seagus slept. “Its hard to believe that this child could destroy a city. But, from what my analysis show, it wasn’t him doing that. It was that other presence in his head, Maledict. Still, when the High Council hears he’s here, no doubt they’ll put him on trial or something. You don’t just get away with leveling a city.” That’s when Banks noticed something was wrong. He slowly stood up facing the door, ready to attack.

Ms. Brumfield

She had left Jaxon not too long ago when her phone began to ring. Releasing a sigh, Ms. Brumfield thought of just ignoring it but she just couldn’t help herself and so she dug into the small bag she took with her and took out her phone. She expected it to be the school calling her but instead it was an unknown number. Face scrunching up in confusion she answered the call.

“Hello, this is Brumfield speaking.”

“Ah Ms. Brumfield! Thank you for answering this is Aberdeens mother, Ms. Brumfield do you know my daughters whereabouts?”

“Her whereabouts what do you mean. I thought she went to the hospital to visit her grandmother.”

“yes that was the plan but we haven’t seen for some time. And were getting worried we haven’t heard from her since she left the Academy!”

“Alright Ms. Andrews please calm down I’m sure there’s a reason behind her not being there yet. Maybe she got held up some place. So please don’t worry I’ll look into this.”

“I guess that makes sense, thank you Ms. Brumfield.” And with that their conversation was over. Ms. Brumfield put her phone back into her bag and sighed.

“Ugghh… my head…it’s throbbing so much…”

The girl with long indigo black hair slowly helped herself up from the sidewalk, wondering where she was. The town she was in seemed to be not too far from a beach and it was quiet with nobody on the streets. She rubbed her head feeling a bit dizzy from the fall, wondering how she fell in the first place. Looking at the beach bustling with life, she decided to head over there hoping someone can tell her where she was.

Walking along with her lacy black boots on the beach was a bit difficult, but she didn’t want to take them off. Burning her feet and skipping all around the beach to create a scene wasn’t something she intended to do. She glanced over to a random guy in blue shorts and asked, “Do you know where I am?”

The guy looked at her funny and said, “The beach, duh. Who the hell are you to wear a long dress in the middle of the beach!”

“I’m—“ the girl began. She couldn’t understand why it was so difficult to say such basic information but it was. No matter how hard she thought, she couldn’t come up with her name.

“Who am I? Do you know who I am?” she asked.

But the guy had already left to go play in the water with his friends. The girl walked along the beach further trying to think about her name when she heard her phone ring. It was her event alarm that sounded but she couldn’t understand what the message meant, “Find Lucy.” Confused, she decided to go to one of the shacks for some food, hoping it could jog her memory somehow.

Austin

“Aberdeen where are you?” he said to himself while riding on his skateboard. Austin had been looking for his cousin ever since he found out that she never showed up at the hospital where her parents were recovering from their injuries. “First Grandma Alma passed away, then uncle and auntie got caught up in that city incident, and now Aberdeen is missing. What the heck…”

At first, Austin was at a loss what to do about the situation. However, last night he had another one of his visions. Aberdeen was being ambushed by some figures in dark cloaks. They took away some black blob she referred to as “Lucy” and then left her on a sidewalk. Austin didn’t know what to make of that vision for awhile. He thought his worries have morphed into some weird nightmares, but he knew his dreams sometimes told him what has happened or what will happen and he couldn’t take it lightly. He remembered that Aberdeen was on a sidewalk and that it was close to what seemed like a beach. Recognizing the area, Austin decided to head over there without his parents’ permission, determined to find Aberdeen.

Austin roamed through the streets trying to find the sidewalk that was across the beach that he saw in his vision. When he found the area, he got off his skateboard and touched his hand on the sidewalk, hoping he would be able to get some information. His eyes went to the back of his head as his mind raced through the past and future of the area of the sidewalk he touched. One vision caught his interest: Aberdeen walking towards the beach that was across from the sidewalk with a confused look.

“The beach! She must be at the beach! Or…she will be. Gahh why can’t my visions tell me when this is happening! Still I got a lead…it’s better than nothing!’

Austin headed over the beach carrying his skateboard wondering how he was going to find her when he hasn’t seen her in awhile. All he had was a picture of her when she was about thirteen, before Brook passed away. She was more cheerful in that picture, smiling with a white sundress and hat waving towards the camera. He hadn’t seen her smile like that in years. Would anyone be able to recognize her features?

While contemplating who to ask, Austin saw an azure aura in front of him, the same aura he had seen with Aberdeen. He looked to his left and to his right, no one noticed but him. “What are you? Why have you been with Aberdeen since the incident?” What am I doing talking to an invisible aura in the beach! The aura drew closer to Austin’s hand and Austin’s eyes drew in themselves again. He saw visions of Brooklyn before her death: Their times together, their laughs, and Brooklyn smiling as if towards him. Austin came back to his senses after seeing Brook smile, catching his breath, and it came to him.

“Brook? I-Is that you? B-but how?”

Brooklyn wished she could speak to her cousin, or at least appear more than just an aura to his senses. However she knew that her presence was enough at least, especially for the task at hand.

“Brook, do you know how I can find Aberdeen?”

The light aura moved towards a group of children with a bear (Kirie, Cassandra, Jaxon) and Austin followed it. “Brook,” Austin whispered, “What am I supposed to do?” Brook didn’t respond so Austin figured he might as well be upfront about it.

“Hey guys, can I just ask you a favor? Have you seen this girl around here? She’s my cousin.” Austin showed them the picture hoping that one of them knew her whereabouts.

Austin
Austin tapped his foot and looked at the slightly taller white haired glasses kid, waiting for a reply. Although the kid only took a few minutes to take the picture and examine it, Austin was getting impatient for it felt like hours. He wanted to get to Aberdeen before something bad happened to her. He couldn't shake this horrible vibe he had that he hoped wasn't part of his powers that he didn't even understand.

When the kid finally finished he asked Austin, "She looks really familiar but I just can't put my finger on it. Does she have a name?"

"Aberdeen. Her name is Aberdeen. I know this isn't the most recent picture of her but she should still look something like this. You said she looked familiar, so does the name help?" Austin couldn't help but say this speedily for he was growing anxious. He took a deep breath and sighed, pulling his white beanie down and adjusting the grip on his skateboard.

Bates
Bates almost had a hard time catching up with Austin down the road. He didn't expect him to go full speed after his cousin. Still, he was having a blast. "Finally an adventure with Austin! I can't wait!" Bates grinned. "He doesn't know me though so I gotta keep quiet and make sure he doesn't notice me," Bates reminded himself. While Austin was riding his skateboard down the street, Bates was bouncing up and down hiding behind bushes from time to time and climbing on rooftops when his bounces got very high. "Bounce Bounce Bounce! It's always fun to bounce!" Bates sang to himself. When Austin stopped all of a sudden, Bates observed him from a distance. Bates understood what Austin was doing, for he had seen him peer into an object's past or future many times before. After Austin rushed to the beach, Bates followed suit, eager to follow his Magni to wherever he goes. Along the way however, a whole see of people rushed in and Bates was knocked over to the side.

"Owwww, humans sure are mean! They didn't even notice me!"

Bates searched the crowd for Austin but he couldn't really see due to his small size.

"Awww..I lost Austin! What am I going to do now??"

Bates struggled through the sand and crowd of people, wondering how he was going to find his Magni when he bumped into a girl with long indigo hair eating some funnel cake. Bates' stomach suddenly growled and he held his stomach with his tiny paws, realizing he hadn't really eaten anything in awhile. He looked up to the girl who's eyes were wide with shock as she looked down on him wondering what he was.

"Awww...I'm hungry. Can I have some of your food? Pwweeeasse??? I'm tired and I got knocked by a bunch of mean people!" Bates eyes were beady and his mouth was curled a bit, hoping to make the girl feel sorry for him. The girl looked at him hesitantly at first, but then slowly ripped off a piece of the funnel cake, dipped it in the strawberry sauce, and slowly handed it to little Bates who gobbled it up rather quickly.

"Awww shucks thank you!!! Can I have some more?" Bates asked with his head cocked to the side and his lips formed into a smile. The girl giggled with her hand to her mouth and she gestured to a spot next to her on the bench she was sitting on for Bates to sit. Bates eagerly sat close to her and started shoving funnel cake to his face, forgetting the fact that he had lost Austin. The girl could only look at Bates and smile, wondering what the heck he was.

"Aberdeen... You said she looks familiar and that's the name of one of our classmates... Would she have hair the length of yours, usually really gloomy or down right creepy at times, Have a... uh 'companion' named Lucy, and lastly have the last name Andrews?" Blushing slightly he hid under the collar of his shirt. "Before you say anything, no I don't have a crush on her I just... like knowing who I'm around." Shaking his head and looking at the indigo haired person, Jaxon quick gave him a once over and coughed. "So... You must be often mistaken for a girl, I myself would've been confused too if I didn't dabble in how the body is structured between males and females as you're much taller and have slightly more muscle tone than a woman. Anyway If that is indeed who you're looking for I'd be more than happy to help. I'm not so sure about Sparky and this Cassandra girl but I have ways of looking around that uh... most others don't."

Contemplating for a second he looked over at his classmates and pulled Kirie over to him slightly "Hey... Do you think he knows anything about demons? I'll be discreet on my questions but I want to know who or what I'm dealing with. That aside I'll try to open portals up all over the beach and hotel area to look for her, if you want I can even go hide and look around from the roofs by my flash warp. It's your call Sparky." After whispering this to Kirie, Jaxon quickly pushed him aside and coughed before looking at the boy. "So.... uh.... You got a name there skater boy?"

Austin

The ghost girl? Austin thought confused by the girl's statements. What the heck is she talking about? Aberdeen was depressed but...wait she's not dead is she???

After waiting for much consensus from the group, the white-haired boy suggested that Austin was not "normal." Austin couldn't help but be a bit defensive and quickly ask, "What do you mean I'm not normal?" He knew he shouldn't have added the detail from his visions, but he couldn't help it. He wanted to know where Aberdeen was and he figured going with as much detail as he is able to reveal would be fine. The white-haired man went on to explain the orange haired kid's ability to "look around" but then he stopped saying that he didn't understand the mechanics himself. Austin was starting to get suspicious with these kids and with Aberdeen. "Ghost girl,' "abilities," "not normal," what did all of this mean? Was Aberdeen not normal like he was?

While in thought, the white-haired man lead Austin and the group to something he cannot show because it "would cause panic amongst the people." He smiled at him and Austin returned a fake reassured smile, pretending to understand what was going on when he was clueless. It really bugged him to be clueless, especially at a really important time, but it was the only lead he got and all he could do was follow. Once they got to a secluded portion of the beach, the white-haired guy faced the group and made a gesture. Nothing happened, so he asked someone named "Raimei" to come out. Austin couldn't believe what his eyes were seeing. A short while after, something shot up from the ground, making Austin step back quickly from the source. Bits of electricity that were TALKING to the boy as though they were friends!

Shaking his finger that is pointed to the electricity, Austin asked shouting, "WHAT THE F*** IS THAT!?!?" The group seemed to view the talking electric creature as though it was a normal occurrence, but to Austin, this was far from normal and this frightened him. "Are you trying to pawn me? Is that is? Look I'm trying to find my cousin, not view some magic trick of yours! What the hell is a Magni and what do you mean that everyone here is one? I can't be one!! I'm not--"

Austin stopped mid sentence, remembering his abilities. While he breathed hard on what he had just witnessed, his mind thought back to what he was capable of doing: seeing the future in his dreams, telling the past or future of things he touches, and who knows what else he had in store. Then it hit him. "Aberdeen...is one...isn't she?"

????

"Why am I doing this?" she asked herself. She didn't know who she was, she didn't know where she was, and now she doesn't know who or what she is with. Some sort of small white and purple creature, like a bunny mixed with a bear, came up to her asking for food. Something compelled her to be nice and share her funnel cake (which by the way didn't help her recover her memory) even though she didn't know what the heck the creature was. She looked around trying to find out whether anyone noticed her and the creature, but thankfully no one did. Thinking this might not look so good, she grabbed the strange bunny-bear cross and headed to the back of the food shack, where there was thankfully no one.

"Oh boy I almost forgot!" the creature suddenly spoke again. She couldn't believe that it was speaking.

"Uh...what did you forget?" she asked timidly, playing along for now. Perhaps this was normal and she forgot!

"I forgot I was supposed to look for my friend! Well...my master...but I do wanna be his friend!" The optimism of this creature was refreshing to Aberdeen. Even though she was hopelessly confused and lost, she was talking to someone that didn't care and that was somewhat lost as well.

"Oh well, I'm trying to find out who I am...and now that I think about it..." Aberdeen took out her cellphone remembering the message, that told her to Find Lucy. "I think I'm looking for someone too. Do you know who Lucy is?"

The creature scratched his head and scrunched his face deep in thought. He mumbled a long "hmmmm" and kept pacing back and forth until he changed his face to look downcast and said, "Ohh sorry I don't know who that is."

She didn't mean to make the creature sad so she told him, "Awww don't be sad! Hey we're both lost so...let's look for who we're looking for together!" adding a smile to her face.

"Hooray!!! I have someone to help me!" the creature danced. "Ohh I better tell you how he looks like! He's kinda tall (though I think everyone is tall) and he has long purple hair and rides a long wheelie thingy that goes WHOOSSHH!!!!"

She hoped that the creature wasn't confusing the person with a girl. Still he was a step closer than she was. She doesn't even know how this "Lucy" looks like.

"Ugh, this is the last time I leave a rock like you to give me directions!" A tall, skinny teenager walked down a long boardwalk, his shoeless-feet are coated in dust and mud, his clothing is dusty and faded, his long orange hair is barely held together by what may have been a beautiful example of a braid, and he looks generally worn and weary. A map was held out in front of his face, which was turned to the side every few seconds as this strange teen held a conversation with something that happened to be hiding in his duffle-bag. A voice floated by his ear, it sounded deep and gravely, not much unlike a speaking avalanche, "This land is young, born barely in a fraction of a second in the scope of Gaia's existence." The teen shook his head and sighed, knowing a glowing rock wasn't going to be much help on finding a school for magic-wielders...

"You know... I am hungry, I will try to find my way after a quick bite, how about you Vel?" He laughed at his companion, he knew full-well the rock couldn't eat, but it wasn't like him to pass up an opportunity to make a joke. He then proceeded to the nearest food-stall hoping to get something deep-fried, but stopped dead in his tracks when he gets a certain feeling... "Oi, Vel, you feel that? It's just like Sonia's demon, but less... Heavy?" The teen begins to look around, curious as to the appearance of another demon much like the one in his bag. His eyes barely catch a glimpse of a small girl with long, purple-ish hair carrying something that was running behind the snack-shack he was just about to dine at, and his gut was telling him she might have something to do with feeling or at least she felt it too and was investigating it herself. "Do not forget your objective, we are seeking out the academy, not chasing other demons." The demon replied, he knew Jericho's wanderlust was going to get the better of him, as he was already walking towards the alley that the girl disappeared into.

"Oi! Little girl! you down here?" He called out just as he began walking through the small gap between buildings, he dropped his duffle bag on the ground right behind some crates at the entrance to the alley, knowing fully well his demon would return it if anyone stole it. "Little girl with the purple hair! Please step out, I need to talk to you."

Aberdeen, Jericho...and Bates

Aberdeen tried to pick up the very enthusiastic creature with her hands, but the creature kept on dogding by bouncing away. They played the "catch me" game a few more times until she gave up. The creature stuck his tongue out and shouted, "Haha! You can't catch me!" while dancing on his feet. She sighed and put her hand to her forehead, wondering why this creature is teasing her when she heard a voice shouting, "Oi! Little girl! you down here?"

Eeeep!!! Aberdeen thought. Who the heck is that?? I can't let him see this little guy here...

"Little girl with the purple hair! Please step out, I need to talk to you."

"Uhh... just a minute! I'll be right there!" Aberdeen called back. Realization came to her that she didn't even know this guy yet she said she would be right there. He could even be a molester or something! However, it didn't seem he had any intention of harming her right? And besides, she did lose her memory, perhaps he did know her from some place.

"I need to speak to you, where are you?" He delves deeper, hands in his pockets, trying to look as casual as he possibly can. "Hello?" His expression was stale and flat, but that was just hiding a sense of I-might-get-jumped-ness that was chewing on the back of his head.

At the response of the mysterious orange-haired man's question, the creature ran to the man and shouted, "Here I am!" with a huge smile on his face. Aberdeen ran towards him trying to hide the little guy, but she knew she couldn't do anything. The man had already seen the little creature and was probably wondering what the heck it was, so Aberdeen started babbling.

"Ahhhh, um.. Hi!! You came to talk to me right!! Not this little thing here hahaha!!! I don't even know who or what he is he just wanted some funnel cake...Hey..you're not going to uh... do anything funny to me are you? Am I supposed to know you?"

Jericho raises his eyebrows in surprise to not only the girl actually coming out of whatever nook she was hiding away in, but the source of his gut-instincts came running out to greet him aswell. He crouches down to get a better look at the demon, even being so bold as to try and pick it up to give it a look over. He then turns to the girl and gives her an eye-over.

"Hello to you too, hmmm... Don't look like someone of omnipotent magical skills, and this little... Thing... Is way less dangerous than Sonia's... Oh well."

He drops the fluffy thing and stands back up to his full height, still keeping a vigilant eye to his surroundings incase of a trap. "I did, actually. And this thing too, if it has anything to say to me that is. So, I guess it isn't your eh.. Demon? I think thats the term my sis uses... Sounds rig-"

He raises another eyebrow to her when she starts on about funny things and if he will commit any on her, one sly smile and a chuckle are all he can part with, after all this is supposed to be serio-

"Well, that depends on what you mean by funny, but if a preverted mind can guess what you mean, then no. Nothing funny, and sorry but I don't think you would know me, kinda from a different side of the world."

"Someone of omnipotent MAGICAL skills!?!" Aberdeen asked out loud. "What are you talking about?" Aberdeen wasn't making any sense out of anything the srtanger said. And she noticed that he called the creature a "demon" and that he wasn't "hers" or whatever that meant. It seemed the creature...or demon.. was upset for he pumped his chest up high and shouted, "Hey!! Who are you calling less dangeerous?? I can be pretty mean too! Hmmph! And never pick me up again!"

Aberdeen was growing tired of not knowing anything. Even though her brain was empty it was starting to feel like a heavy metal weight was pounding on it over and over. It was strange, but the words magic and demon, though her mind didn't recognize those words, her heart felt as though she should be familiar with them. Although it was a long shot Aberdeen decided she would ask.

"So, do you think you would mind helping us out? This little guy here is looking for his friend...or was it master? And I'm trying to find out who the heck I am. And...someone named Lucy..." Aberdeen felt a pang in her heart at the mention of the name. Nostalgia mixed with grief and anger was swirling in her feelings as though Lucy was someone very important to her. "Would you be so kind to help us and explain yourself while you're at it?"

"Yeah, magic! Neat ain't it? I can control earth, if we get somewhere that isn't sandy I could show you." He looks down at his feet, lifting up one foot to examine the pads of his toes, which are filled with splinters from the weathered wood of the boardwalk. "Ugh, glad I can't feel this... Anyways, do you want an explination right now or can we get off this thing?"

Woah...I'm in some really cool dream. When do I wake up? Please!!! Aberdeen thought. Controlling earth? I wanna see this! "Yeah sure, I'd love to see this earth thing. Let's go for it!"

He nods, placing his hands back in his pockets, extending one leg outwards, spinning on his standing-heel, and walking off in way the hopefully doesn't look sucpicous to anyone who saw a six-foot guy follow a five-foot girl into an alley. He picks back up his duffle bag when he passes it and throws it over his shoulder, the weight makes him bend and warp for a moment but he straightens out and compensates for the added load on his body. He finally manages to make it onto solid ground and smiles. "Ah, better, guess you don't know what you can do, but it feels better for me to be on nice, solid earth... Hmm..." He glances around for a place to hide from sight, where his magic wouldn't attract attention, and he finds such a place in a nearby abandoned conveince store, it sits in a torn-down state, but it is something! He walks up to the door which is covered in half-rotten boards nailing it closed, and turns to Aberdeen. "OK, this might be breaking-and-enetering... Buuuut... This is what I mean." And with that, he winds his right-leg back as if he is ready to give an invisible ball a kick, and then he slams down into the earth with his foot. This might look painful, but this is hard to notice due to a large leg made of stone and earth shoot out at an angle from where he connected with the ground towards the door, shattering it enough to provide an entrance. "Welp, there you go, magic!"

Aberdeen couldn't believe her eyes! REAL MAGIC right in FRONT of her!! With a huge slam, a large mass of stone and earth shot towards the door and made it smash! "Wow...this is awesome!"

Austin

Austin’s head was going in circles trying to understand what was going on. His cousin is something called a “magni” and he’s surrounded by even more magni with lightning powers and spatial distortion powers. She has a demon named Lucy who was probably the black blob that she was calling out to. The rest of these magni also have demons like the cranky electro sprite who was supposedly older than he was. To top it all off, the group is asking him if he is one of them, trying to figure out whether he has supernatural powers or a demon just like they do. He was still trying to wrap his mind around what one kid did: teleporting behind him, tapping him on the shoulder, and flashing back in front of him in just mere seconds. All of this magic and talk of the supernatural overwhelmed him, and now he had to decide whether to confide in the people he just met about his own powers?

“Can’t help it I guess,” Austin shrugged. “Alright I’ll admit this stuff if it’ll get me closer to finding out the truth behind Aberdeen.”

“Before I ask questions, perhaps I should explain the nature of the supernatural phenomena that happens around me. I first remembered being able to see this aura around people…and spirits. I don’t know if Aberdeen ever told anyone this but her sister died about three years ago, and ever since then I’ve been able to see an aura around her that she talks to. I didn’t understand it at the time but…it was her..Brook…her sister that she was talking to. Three years later her grandmother passes away, her parents get into a citywide accident, and Aberdeen goes missing. Then I get these…visions of Aberdeen getting taken away somewhere and calling out to Lucy. I’ve gotten visions before that around two months ago, but something like this is just crazy. That’s how I got myself here to find her and I used this other ability I have. Whenever I touch something, whether it be an object, a person, a place, I can see the past or future of it but I can’t tell whether it happened or will happen. So I used that to tell whether she’s been here and I saw the same thing that happened in my visions plus her heading to the beach here. Then I saw the aura again, Brook, and she led me to you guys.”

“So there you have it…my freak of nature powers and some history lesson on myself and Aberdeen. As for a demon or a presence… I don’t remember having one. I guess I just wanna know, if you guys are electricity and spatial distortion, what does that make me? What was Aberdeen’s type of magic? And…do you know what that citywide accident was?”

Austin had to restrain himself from screaming, “THIS IS CRAZY!!!” Although he tried to maintain a calmer composure than normal, his body was trying to resist, making him tap his foot with impatience and nervousness and shrug his arms.




Aberdeen

Suddenly after seeing the amazing display of instant rock formation and hearing a big “CLANK” from the impact of the rocks onto the door, Aberdeen’s head started to throb. She quickly held her head and fell down on her knees trying to take the pressure of her head.

“Aagghhhh!!” Aberdeen yelled. “G…GAAHHhhhhh!!” The pressure on her head was getting heavier and she gripped her head tighter. Bates ran to Aberdeen’s side and pulled on her dress asking her, “Hey what’s wrong?? Are you okay??”
In a flash, Aberdeen saw different visions go by, visions that didn’t seem to make sense. There was in a car with an older girl smiling at a much younger girl. Suddenly she swerves and a familiar sound rings in her ears, “CLANK!!” Red…a dead girl…a spirit girl…and her missing reflection…

The pain stops and Aberdeen crashes onto the floor, relieved from the overwhelming amount of force that she felt inside her head. What were those visions she saw?

“Where did you go???” Bates called out.

“Ughh…what’re you talking about? I’m right here..” Aberdeen said weakly.

“Ahhh!!!” Bates jumped. “How did you do that?”

“Do what?” Aberdeen asked confused.

“You’re talking but…I can’t even see you!!”

“That’s nonsense I’m right—“ Aberdeen started until she looked at her hand. She started intently at the location she knew her hand had to be at, but she couldn’t see it even though her own body could feel it “there.”

“—Here…? Uhh…are you doing this?” Aberdeen asked the guy who had just done the stunt with the rocks.

Austin

Austin couldn’t help but feel a pang in his heart hearing about how Aberdeen never really got close to anyone at the Academy.
”It seems even now she still hasn’t gotten over her,” Austin thought.

Austin did his best to follow what the other students of this Academy were saying. It seemed to make “sense” that his and Aberdeen’s magic stemmed from the same sort of form or source: Shadow magic. In particular, his own sub-genre was that of psychic. It seemed reasonable from the movies he’s seen or those video games he’s heard of where characters had psychic powers. He shook his head at the thought of all of this being ”reasonable” since—for crying out loud—this is magic they’re talking about here!

His line of crazy thought was stopped when Kirie had explained the cause of the destruction of the city. He was ready to grab Kirie and yell at the whole lot of them, wondering how a school could allow one of their own students to conduct such a forbidden ritual and destroy innocent lives...especially Grandma Alma’s. However he did his best to hold back until the explanations were finished, clenching his fists and thinking over and over ”for Aberdeen…for Aberdeen…”

Jaxon then continued where Kirie had ended and called him out on his anger, though on the other anger of Aberdeen’s disappearance (Just how could the Academy have lost contact of her??). At the mention of the concern over Austin’s demon, Austin gave it some thought. He seems to have some vague memory over some sort of guardian but he thought that was just a figment of his imagination. At the appearance of “Tama,” a white and gold cat, Austin jumped a bit, but then smirked at the creature’s peculiar nature.

Finally, Austin had a choice to make, but really he only had one lead.

“Well, all of this will take some…getting used to…but I need to find Aberdeen before something else happens so I’ll go with you guys. Do you even have any idea where she—“

Austin cut off his sentence as his eyes had turned inside his eyeballs and he grasped his head in pain. It was happening again. Another vision, though this time there was more pain associated with it as many visions seemed to be happening at once. Austin grunted before letting out a cry of pain and letting his hands grasp his head tighter. It felt as though his head’s veins were being squeezed tightly by several tight gripping hands.

The worse part however was the visions. There was a brief scene of Aberdeen meeting a small white bunny bear looking creature, a scene of the two of them eating some funnel cake, a scene of meeting another strange looking man with bright orange hair tied into a pony tail, a scene of that same man creating some rock structures busting a door, a scene of Aberdeen on the floor in pain and then disappearing. He couldn’t hear any voices, only see flashes of the scenes whirl past his “eyes” at lightning speed. It was hard to comprehend anything that was going on, so Austin could only make out a few details such as Aberdeen, some strange creature, and some man going to several places. He assumed that hopefully these were still places of the beach and that she wasn’t too far, but he couldn’t understand how Aberdeen could suddenly vanish into thin air. However, of all the visions, there was one last one that made no sense. The vision seemed to be in his own perspective…or perhaps he was viewing the perspective of another. It was within a building that “he” moved and went right through the walls of the building seemingly in a panic. Then there was water…a lot of it…splashes yet when he looked down he couldn’t see his hands, his feet or his body. The water just splashed without anything moving it. Then he turned around, the small purple and white little bear bunny creature was doing its best following him. It seemed to be yelling something but he couldn’t hear anything. The little guy struggled to stay above the water and panicked with its eyes wide open, arms flailing around, and his head bobbing in and out of the water.

Austin opened his eyes. He realized he had passed out on the beach floor as the visions zipped passed his mind. The last vision made him worry and he wondered whether the little guy was already drowning or whether he was about to drown. He turned towards the ocean looking closely and was shocked at what he witnessed. The water was splashing around although nothing was causing it to do so, as though some invisible person was running across the small waves. Remembering his vision, he turned to the students and said in a panic, “I just got another vision…I don’t understand what’s going on but…something’s happening in the ocean and if we don’t get there fast something’s going to drown!”

Without waiting for the others, Austin rushed towards the ocean dropping his skateboard on the ground. As soon as he got close enough to the ocean, Austin hurriedly threw his shoes off and tried to locate the portion of the ocean where the splashes were occurring and hopefully spot the drowning demon. He heard the waters splash and stir and whirled around to see the tiny bear bunny creature that was in his vision yelling, “Help!! I can’t swi—grrarrrbbgglll” Austin rushed his arms forward grabbing the little demon with his hands, but found that he wasn’t the only one holding him. He can feel soft delicate hands that are also tightly grasping the poor demon away from the waters below him, yet to his surprise he couldn’t see anyone. Unsure of the sensation he was feeling, Austin pulled the demon back towards him, causing an invisible person to fall forward onto himself.

It took a while for Austin to adjust himself from the position he fell into, keep the demon out of the water, and help the girl from her position. It seemed that upon falling, the girl had regained visibility so that Austin can see her dress, boots, and purple hair… He nearly let the demon in his hands drop to the waters again as he stared in shock at the girl that had fallen right in front of him.

“A—Aberdeen!?!” Austin gasped. He didn’t expect to find his cousin like this. However, his initial shock went to panic when Aberdeen replied, “Who?”

Kirie

He shrugged his shoulders at Jaxon’s new nickname for him. He didn’t intervene with Jaxon’s informational speech seeing as he got just about everything right So then he does pay attention to Ms. Brumfield, Kirie couldn’t help but smile a bit as he was starting to get comfortable. That is until Tama appeared which actually caught him off guard if only just a bit, he grinned sheepishly at Tama as he answered his greetings. “Oh we’ve been good, although Raimei could have been better. She doesn’t like the ocean much let alone anything that has to do with water.”

Then in just a few sentences, Jaxon basically laid out their next plan of action and that was to get Austin to make up his mind. In all honesty Kirie wouldn’t be too surprised if the kid decided not to go along with them, to not believe a damn thing either of them had just told him. Which was fine really, knowing that Aberdeen may be in trouble didn’t necessarily mean they’d need her cousin to go along with them. He might be more of a burden then of help. Kirie watched Austin carefully trying to gauge out what was on his mind; sadly he wasn’t a mind reader.

“Well, all of this will take some…getting used to…but I need to find Aberdeen before something else happens so I’ll go with you guys. Do you even have any idea where she—“

An almost sigh of relief passed through his lips but he stopped it prematurely the moment Austin himself was cut off. Why he didn’t finish was pretty much left to question if you didn’t take in account the fact that he near about fainted after holding his head in pain. “Hey you okay Austin? Not that you look okay in the first place.” he knew better than to ask but he had asked anyway. After a minute or two had passed, Austin’s eyes opened again earning a sigh of relief from Kirie. Well at least he’s not dead. The next words that came out of Austin’s mouth did catch Kirie’s full attention as h talked about him having a vision of someone getting ready to drown.

Wow I can just hear Raimei telling me ‘I told you so” thinking this, Kirie rubbed the bridge of his nose and looked back up. A look of realization passed his face seeing as Austin was no longer standing in front of him. Rather the kid was already running towards the seaside and so Kirie ran after him but not after looked over at Jaxon. He skidded to a stop at the sight of Austin on the sandy ground holding a rather odd looking creature in his hand. “I’m guessing that’s you’re demon correct?” Kirie’s wine red eyes widened just a fraction upon noticing the girl who was right across from Austin but even more so when she said that one word that he knew would no doubt send panic through any ones heart. “Aberdeen?”

Hearing her reply to Austin, Kirie walked over and squatted in front of her. “Yeah, Aberdeen is none other than you. Seeing as you don’t even know your own name, its pretty obvious you have amnesia. Now the question to be asked is, how did you lose it?” Kirie grabbed her chin and pulled it to the side so she’d turn her head left and then right, “Well I don’t see any bumps or anything of that sort, Jaxon what do you think?” Kirie looked over his shoulder at him with a questioning look on his face.

“Well I don’t see any bumps or anything of that sort, Jaxon what do you think?”

Shrugging his shoulders Jaxon replied simply. "Hey I'm a physicist not a psychologist all that mind is greek to me man." Scratching his head slightly he looked at Austin and sighed. "Hey buddy boy got any way to job her memory? Your power deals with your mind so maybe you can get hers to start up again, stupid idea I know but I got nothing at the moment. But anyway we should probably get her to the hotel to show Brumfield who we found and tell her we got a new student ya know?" Stretching out his back Jaxon looked at the others with a smirk. "I'll see you guys there but first I'm headed back to the room." And with that said Jaxon snapped his fingers and disappeared.

Austin

”Who?” Aberdeen asked with her eyes looking at Austin in confusion.

Austin stood in shock with his eyes staring at Aberdeen in disbelief. He had finally found the one he was searching for, but she didn’t even find herself. He almost grabbed her and shook her if not for the fact that they were both holding on to what might be his demon and Kirie confirming, “Yeah, Aberdeen is none other than you. Seeing as you don’t even know your own name, its pretty obvious you have amnesia. Now the question to be asked is, how did you lose it?”

”Hey don’t touch my cousin!” Austin yelled at Kirie as he grabbed Aberdeen’s chin to inspect for any injuries. “Well I don’t see any bumps or anything of that sort, Jaxon what do you think?”

"Hey I'm a physicist not a psychologist all that mind is greek to me man," Jaxon replied. He then turned his head slightly at Austin asking whether he could possibly help Aberdeen regain her memories using his powers. Austin was nervous at the idea. He had just found out that his powers were just one of many that are used by people called Magni, people that he must now associate himself with. He wasn’t sure what he had to do and whether Aberdeen would be safe under his own power, but he had to try.

[b]“But anyway we should probably get her to the hotel to show Brumfield who we found and tell her we got a new student ya know?"


Jaxon then disappeared on the spot with a snap of his fingers, probably reappearing at the hotel that he mentioned with this “Ms. Brumfield” character. He looked at Aberdeen trying to figure out how he can help her regain her memories when the little creature suddenly shouted, “NOW I REMEMBER!!!” causing Austin to nearly drop him and stare with his eyes wide at the little guy. He tried to regain composure but still showed hesitation when asking him, “Um…what do you remember?” And why are you talking?” mumbling the last line.

“I was trying to find you Austin! I hope you’re not mad that I’ve been watching you and hiding from you and not telling you about me and—“ the little bunny like creature said excitedly.

“Wait a minute…are you the little guy that played with me when I was little? I thought…you were made up…”

“Yup! That’s me!!! But we can talk about that later! You seem to need help with your powers. I’m not entirely sure of what to do but I’ve heard of something we can try. I’m kind of a new demon.”

Austin only nodded and followed the demon’s instructions, eager to help Aberdeen. After the group moved to a secluded area so as not to attract more attention, Austin was told to hold his hands to Aberdeen’s head and to concentrate on healing her memories. As Aberdeen was regaining her memories, he could also see them flash through his mind. He found out about Aberdeen’s powers, how she could see Brooklyn, her time at the Academy, and losing her demon before she lost her memories. After all was over, he gasped at the overwhelming loss of energy from healing Aberdeen’s mind and Aberdeen fainted to the ground overwhelmed at the amount of information she was regaining. Austin carried Aberdeen and followed Kirie and the rest of the Magni that was still on the beach back to the hotel. It seemed there was another girl and a huge blob that followed the group from who knows where, though the blob looking demon seemed to shy away from Aberdeen. After resting Aberdeen in one of the unoccupied rooms, Austin went to Ms. Brumfield and explained the whole situation with the rest of the Magni. It appeared that Austin will be attending the institution. Despite his fears and worries, he wanted to discover what else his powers can do. More importantly, he needed to catch up with Aberdeen and maybe help her to finally heal from the loss of her sister. It seems that there was to be a memorial service held the next day so Austin went into one of the other open rooms and slept in, wondering whether he will wake up with all of this being a dream or with all of this becoming his reality.

Ms. Brumfield

The teacher sat down with a sigh. Laying out on her back the woman pushed a hand through her hair and groaned. She hadn't thought so much crap would happen on the first day of their field trip. "But no, the kids just had to come across Aberdeens cousin and then Aberdeen herself. Ugh I don't even know what that brats up to!" The brat being Kieron since she knew he was probably fooling around and playing pranks on the other hotel guests.

Sitting up Ms. Brumfield put on her pjs and went to bed.

Kirie

The young man simply went with the flow. After Austin had explained everything to Ms. Brumfield, Kirie went to his room and took a quick shower. Once done he sat in his bed and quickly fell asleep, not even bothering to get into a comfy position.

The next morning he woke up still tired as hell. Yawning he quickly got dressed, nudged Jaxon to see if he was up or was already gone, and headed out to eat breakfast. Walking down the halls, he noticed that Ms. Brumfield was knocking on doors trying to get some of the other students to get up. Some did while others ignored her knocking and she left in a huff of frustration. Once he got to the breakfast room, he got a bowl of cereal and sat down. Maybe someone will come by, take pity on me and try to start up a conversation.

Kirie wanted anything but to talk with other people. It showed in his face, the absolute boredom that practically screamed out at people.

Aberdeen

Aberdeen lay on the bed feeling as though there were chains constricting her movements. Her muscles were still sore from her adventure and lifting her head up only reminded her of the dizziness and pumping veins that had caused her to ignore Brumfield's knocking on the door.

"Ugghh...why do I feel so horrible Lucy?" Aberdeen asked. When there was no reply, Aberdeen quickly stood up, eyes wide open in panic. She remembered everything, including Lucy’s kidnapping and shouted in her mind in fear, “LUCY???” Ignoring the pain on her arms and legs and the dizzy sensation from her head, Aberdeen sprang up from her bed and slammed the door open. She ran across the hall trying to glance down at the bottom openings for any sight of shadows and looked behind curtains and large pieces of furniture. Aberdeen’s heart was pounding at the thought of her demon being taken away from her. Although part of her memory had returned, she still didn’t remember Lucy following her from behind. Without thinking, Aberdeen pounded on the door of one of the students until she used her powers to run through it. Whoever’s room it was, Lucy was standing over the person trying to use her haunting dream abilities to give his or her nightmares. Aberdeen couldn’t tell who it was because by the time she got to the room she had overexerted herself from ignoring her weakness and only saw blurs. The last thing she heard was {b]“Abby!”[/b] from Lucy which brought to Aberdeen a smile before she fainted. “You’re okay,” Aberdeen thought.

Austin

Unlike Aberdeen, Austin immediately woke at the knock of Ms. Brumfield and angrily stomped out of the room shouting, “What’s the big idea!?!”

Being angry and confused from yesterday’s events made him hungry so he ran to the breakfast area expecting some sausages, sunny side up eggs, orange juice, and French toast, only to find that they served either bagels or cereal and that they ran out of milk. Frustrated, Austin grabbed four plain bagels, a plastic knife, and some packets of butter and walked into the dining area. He sat next to Kirie, not paying attention to his boredom, and quickly opened the packets of butter. Grabbing the plastic knife, Austin vigorously sliced a plain bagel so hard that the plastic knife snapped.

“Arrrghhhh!! Can’t I just get something to eat I’m so f—“

“Good mooorrnniing Austin!” Bates hopped onto the table smiling.

“Agghhh!!!” Austin jumped up from his seat in shock and pointed to Bates. “You!! You’re—you actually exist!?!?”

“Why that’s a silly question to ask Austin. Of course I exist because you met me yesterday! And it’s a good thing I do because I got some buttered up bagels right here for you. Yaaayy!!!”

Bates scurried over to the other end of the table and picked up a large plate of bagels all buttered up. He wobbled from side to side trying to get to Austin, but slipped on the table cloth, dropping the plate of bagels. Austin meant to try and grab the plate of bagels or at least a bagel to save it from falling onto the table, but instead the plate of bagels floated in midair as soon as Austin reached his hand out for it. With his other hand, Austin grabbed the floating bagels, still in disbelief of him having powers and a demon.

He then sat down and turned to Kirie, brushing his shock off into a smile and casually asked, “So mind telling me what’s supposed to go down today?” while scarfing down some bagels.

Upon finally coming back from the beach it had felt like Jaxon had all the energy sapped from his body and barely made it to his and Kirie's room. Shaking his head slightly he opened the door threw his shirt off into a corner and climbed into bed with Tama climbing off his shoulder. "Hey Jaxon are you ok? You seem a little out of it buddy." Shaking his head Jaxon looked at Tama and smiled. "Yeah I'm fine don't need to worry about me Tama just let me rest for now." Yawning aloud Jaxon pulled the covers over himself and silently passed out.

The following morning came quickly from a night of dreamless sleep and didn't help much when Kirie had nudged him only causing him to curl up into a tight ball. "Kirie let me sleep I don't do it often so let me have just this..." Immediately after saying that Jaxon had passed back out again this time it seemed as if he was still half conscious and continued to mumble something about potatoes or something to himself. Slightly after falling into a deeper sleep Aberdeen's demon had been filling Jaxon's head with nightmares until Aberdeen came crashing into the room.

'No one believes what you've done.'
'No one enjoys your company.'
'No one would care if you left so why not?'
'No one even knows who you are, they never cared to ask have they?'
'No one has ever cared for you Jaxon, poor poor Jaxon...'

"Nooo... Leave me alone... I don't know who you are but leave me alone!" Looking back and forth for whoever was saying it all Jaxon saw was darkness. 'You know it's true they all hate you for what you did at the arena oh so long ago.' Seething slightly Jaxon charged at where the voice had come from only to be met with a woman. "M-mother? What are you doing here?" The woman stood there with a smile on her face and laughed wickedly 'I don't know what am I doing here? I mean I abandoned you JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE DID.' Dropping to his knees Jaxon started laughing and held his head in his hands, "You know I was right I should've killed you when I had the chance, I'd much rather be an orphan than some kid who was put up for adoption by his own parents because they chose not to understand." After hearing this the woman sat there with a face of stone. 'I tried to raise you but you being a demon child is nothing that I could do, you choosing not to have friends and getting into fights? What else was I suppose to do with a little screw up like that?'

"No.... No... Get out of my head.... GET OUT OF MY HEAD!!!" Shaking himself awake he looked at Aberdeen and scanned the room to see Melody and Amaya standing in the door. "Oh.... uh how is everyone doing? Is there something going on that I don't know about or something?" Jaxon sat there blushing to himself and hid back under the covers before speaking to the three girls. "Hey can you three leave my room? I want to get showered and dressed."

It's way too early for this...

It was difficult not to hear the agonizing screams of someone, and Melody instantly shot up from her awkward sleeping pose. Amaya had already darted off, leaving Melody to try not to doze off lest it really was a pressing matter.

With a loud yawn, the girl stumbled across the halls in nothing but her pyjamas and made her way to where she supposed to screams were coming from.

As usual, it was nothing off interest. Melody remained silent throughout most of the conversation, only raising an eyebrow at Amaya's comment on hoping that Kirie had gone completely mad. Right... She thought sarcastically, shaking her head at her room mate. When all was said and done, Melody swiftly returned to her room and rushed to get dressed and showered before approaching Kieran's room.

*Knock Knock*

No response.

He's not here, is he?

Probably not.

With a heavy sigh, Melody resumed her search until she eventually ran into Kieran sitting at the beach. Greeting him with a smile of her own, Melody sat next to him rubbing her eyelids to deprive them of sleep.

“So Mel, what do you think I should say? About Connor, I mean.”

He still hadn't thought about that? No speech preparations? Melody shrugged, unsure that she could help with that. “Just wing it. You're good at that, I guess.” She answered through a brief yawn.

As they sat in the sand, waiting for the others, Melody perked up as she felt her stomach growl. “Y'know, I haven't had breakfast yet. Wanna get some? I'm hungry...”

Austin

Austin stayed silent during his meal, partly because he was rather very hungry and partly because he was thinking about what Kirie had mentioned.

They’re having a memorial service…one of their classmates…died? That must have been horrible...

After finishing up and chatting with Amaya, he followed the two to the beach catching them making weird faces at each other. He shrugged and kept on walking until they had met up with a few more of Aberdeen’s classmates. These two were new faces to Austin, so he felt he needed to introduce himself.

“Hey, I’m Austin. So I’m guessing your Kieran and Melody.”

Austin didn’t know what else to say. Usually he would find the nearest person and try to strike a long conversation with them, but it didn’t seem appropriate now. However, he didn’t want to stay silent and confused for the whole time and he gathered the courage to get some information.

“So, can anyone fill me in on this school and what’s been going on? Newbie here.”

Aberdeen

After a few minutes, Aberdeen woke up with everything starting to come into focus.

“Oww…my head is still ringing inside…”

She turned to see Jaxon and Lucy, smiling at first at the sight of her demon, but then quickling frowning at the fact that she was on the floor with Jaxon still in his pajamas.

“Uh…sorry for crashing on your floor..whatever…”

She glared at Lucy who was smiling behind her mask from a good day’s work of causing nightmares.

”LUCY what the hell did you just do to Jaxon??”

”Jaxon…nightmare..fun….”

Aberdeen’s eyes opened wide. She hoped Lucy didn’t psychologically damage Jaxon for life. She was used to the nightmares that Lucy occasionally tested her with but she wasn’t sure how Jaxon would take them. Slowly she got up and turned towards the door, blushing red out of embarrassment as she apologized with her head turned away from Jaxon, “And sorry for the nightmares that Lucy caused… I guess I’ll see you around…”

Aberdeen got ready and headed down to breakfast, only to find that everyone seemed to have left. She wasn’t sure what was going on today and didn’t want to get lost trying to find them like last time.

“I hope Jaxon’s still up there…” Aberdeen thought, going back up the stairs to Jaxon’s room.

When she got to the door, Aberdeen paused, hating the fact that she had to go back and face him after yelling, dropping on the floor, and having Lucy mess Jaxon’s brains out. However, she needed help finding the others and she had been out of it for the last couple of days, so she took a deep breath and knocked on the door.

“Jaxon, you there? I sure hope I’m not all alone here” Aberdeen said mumbling the last part.

After finally getting through his normal routine of showering Jaxon had heard Aberdeen through the door. "Just go down to the dining room and follow the others I've got things I got to do today. So don't worry alright?" Frowning to himself he looked out the window to the people setting up for the funeral and slowly rubbed his eyes. "See.... this is why I've got things to do..." Turning away from the window he got himself fully dressed and warped himself to the top of the building and started to open what seemed to be a tunnel leading back to the school. "Alright now that that's in place all I have to do is wait for everyone to be busy with procession and then I sneak away.... No one will notice, but for now I need to play it normally."

Smiling to himself he warped back into his room and opened the door to face Aberdeen. "Alright so they're doing a funeral thing for Connor since what had happened with what happened with the monster attack in the city, so we should probably hurry up down to the beach. Oh, and don't worry about food I got that covered." Mere seconds after saying this he had snapped his fingers and two apples fell into his hands before handing one to her. "I had been roaming around the hotel yesterday and found where they keep their fresh fruits and vegetables so... since we're customers it isn't stealing it's.... upgrading the food we could get." As soon as Jaxon said this he smirked walking past her slowly taking bites out of the apple before letting it drop to the ground and disappear.

Austin
Austin answered Amaya’s motion in the sand with a raised eyebrow followed by a shrug. "At least one girl is still in a good mood” he thought. He sat next to Amaya and dug his hands into the sand, scooping some and letting it fall through the gaps between his fingers. Although he looked away from Kirie, he listened to his explanation of a school for newbie freaks such as him.

”Great, just great. I search for Aberdeen, find out I got some powers and a little bunny…thing, and now I’m with a group of schoolmates” Austin thought, annoyed at the way matters have accumulated.

Austin kept his thoughts quiet, however, because he wanted to pay respects to whoever passed away. His mind went through memories of his cousin Brooklyn’s funeral: the cold silence with the exception of those who couldn’t hold their tears, Aberdeen’s empty expression, and the white casket that contained the body of the deceased. He hoped that whoever was close to the student was or at least will be alright. It was one of his regrets that he didn’t try to help Aberdeen when she became depressed, opting instead to ignore the problem in hope that she would forget. Now that he finally saw her and she remembered, he wanted to talk to her. He was worried the memorial service might bring back memories of Brook…and memories of Grandma Alma.

Aberdeen
Jaxon handed Aberdeen one of the two apples that he teleported into his hands. Aberdeen followed right behind him, staring at the apple’s shiny skin. The words “funeral,” “monster,” and “city” rang in Aberdeen’s head as reminders of what she had failed to accomplish during her amnesia. “Grandma…I’m sorry Aberdeen muttered. Still angry over what had happened, Aberdeen bit into the apple hard, hurting her gums a bit from the force. She winced before chewing the fragments of the apple and swallowed hard. Aberdeen continued this, pondering and biting the apple as if it was her enemy, whilst following Jaxon wherever he was headed. Although he said to go with the others, it was the last thing Aberdeen wanted to do. She’d rather deal with one person than deal with five. “You can just ignore me, I’ll make it easier for you to” Aberdeen said to Jaxon, turning invisible. ”I just don’t want to face the others. I don’t care what you’re up to but I’d rather be here than another funeral.”

Kirie


The white hair youngster wasn’t gone for very long. The need to be with the rest of his class and to not dismiss orders ate at him so Kirie went back to where the service was being held. He stood there with the rest of his classmates not saying a word until the end of the service. Heading over to Kieran the lighting magni was well aware that Kieran didn’t quite like him or his girlfriend for that matter. Stepping up to him, Kirie placed a hand on his classmates shoulder and bowed his dipped his head. “I truly am sorry about your brother Kieran. He was and still is a good person even if he isn’t here.” Giving the other boy a sad smile Kirie knew of Kierans pain or at least how to deal with it when it was vented towards you.

Letting his hand slide from his shoulder Kirie walked off glancing in the direction of his childhood friend. She was the reason he was so used to that sort of stuff. It was his fault her brother was dead but quite a bit of time had passed since then. Shaking his head, he knew it’d be pointless to try and change Amaya’s way of thought concerning him and her brothers circumstances. If anything Kirie would pay anything to switch places with him if it meant Amaya would truly be happy. Idiot there’s no use in thinking that. she’d be sad all the same regardless of which one of us died. A look of guilt passed his usually bright face before it disappeared and he went back to the inn.



Some Time Later


The group left the beach a day after the service. They were able to do some of the activities they had planned for that week however some of their classmates were missing. Ms. Brumfield was a bit worried but since it was Jaxon they were talking about she gave up on trying to figure out where he went. Most likely he had gone back to the Academy so most didn’t give it a second thought further. Kirie was a bit lonely knowing his roommate wasn’t with him but then again they hadn’t had a good enough conversation to say that they were close friends.

Staring out the window as their bus lumbered along back to the Academy with a look that said he wasn’t quite there. Everyone sat where they did when they were going to the beach. Realizing that not much had changed in terms of everyone’s relationship with one another Kirie smiled to himself wondering if Melody would ever consider him a friend or if Amaya would forgive him for the past. Pulling away from the window his eyes scanned the row of seats in front of him. He had chosen to sit in the second to last row in the far back to get a clear view of everyone.

It wasn’t that he was shy or anything but rather with how the whole beach incursion went Kirie wasn’t really motivated to interact with everyone as he attempted to since the start of school. Thinking further on this it soon became apparent that the school year would soon be drawing into summer meaning they’d be leaving for summer break before coming back for a new school year. The way the school years worked at Liuena were still odd to him. Looking down at his hands Kirie began reminiscence about all that had happen so far this year. There was that trip to the Human City where they not only gained a new student but lost an old one. Briefly looking for Kieran he still wondered how his classmate was feeling about it all. After the incident in the city there was that crazy weird accident when they were playing capture the flag. Then there was just the time spent in class and doing other class projects to help them with their magic. At their little field trip they met Aberdeen but now when he thought about it he hadn’t seen her since she went to find Ms. Brumfield. On the other hand they did come across Austin her cousin who was closer to the front of the bus where Ms. Brumfield could talk to him about the Academy.

Finally looking up from his hands Kirie was startled upon seeing a pair of glowing eyes staring right at him. Jumping slightly in his seat he calmed down enough to realize it was just his demon Raimei. Chuckling to himself his eyes followed his companion as she drifted between the seats towards the front of the bus and then back to where he sat. “You know you’re not supposed to be out?” His demon merely glanced about nervously as she usually did however this time it seemed a bit different. Sitting up straighter in his seat Kirie regarded his demon seriously this time. Is something wrong? She merely reached out towards him with a look of fright clearly shown in her orbs of compact lightning. Something isn’t right at the Academy.

A bit confused by her thoughts Kirie glanced around the bus wondering if any of the other demons would pick up on Raimei’s thoughts. Then again she was the only one who wasn’t hidden at the moment. “What do you mean? Did something happen?” whispering quietly to her Kirie leaned forwards towards his demon. She glanced about again wringing her hands as sparks shot off her in small little bursts. I’m not really sure but there’s just something very off about Liuena. Kirie titled his head to the side a bit still a bit confused. Reaching out towards her Kirie wanted to comfort her however it’d be impossible to touch her without dying on the spot. “I’m sure it’s nothing Raimei. Now go before Ms. Brumfield actually notices you’re here.” making a shooing motion with his hand Raimei sighed and faded into nothingness.





A Few Months Later


The sun’s heat wafted through the open windows of the classroom. A woman stood at the front of the classroom a look of triumph on her face as she regarded her class. Most of the classes occupants sat on the edge of their seats waiting for the bell to ring signaling the end of the semester and the start of summer. A young man sat close to the window seemingly oblivious to the fact that today was the last day he’d be in this classroom for a few months. Finally the bell rang and most everybody jumped up to get the heck out of the stuffy classroom.

Ms. Brumfield stepped aside just in time to get out of her students way. She called out to a specific few who had caught her attention since the beginning of the semester. They showed the most promise but they also gave her the most trouble not that she minded now since she wouldn’t have to deal with them for a good few months. Noticing Kirie was still sitting by the window she walked over to him tapping him on the shoulder. The action broke him from his careful thoughts and he glanced up at her, wine colored orbs glazed over in thought. “ Kirie it’s time for you to go.” Giving him a soft smile she patted his shoulder as she went over to her desk to gather her things. Waiting for Kirie to get his own things ready the pair left the room together but they soon went their separate ways.

Kirie went straight to his dorm room to gather his things. Knocking on the door in case Jaxon was inside he already knew that it was pointless since Jaxon disappeared during the beach incursion along with Aberdeen. The Academy was still looking into it but they were falling across a bunch of dead ends. Gathering all his clothes into a single suitcase the room was just about empty on his side, even Jaxon’s side of the room had been cleared away most of it had been sent to his family in case he came back. Staring at the room for a good solid minute Kirie sighed and closed the door and headed off towards the shuttle.

Upon arriving there he saw some of his classmates, most of whom he said his good byes to, before standing to the side awaiting the bus to take them home. Turning back around to look at the Academy despite this being a yearly routine for him for the past two years somehow this semester seemed a lot different now that it was ending. Just like his demon had told him when they were coming back from the beach there was still something off about the Academy. Shaking his head Kirie climbed a nearby tree so he was no longer in the sun. Looking down from his lofty position the white hair individual smiled to himself as those wine orbs caught sight of a bus heading towards them.

“Looks like we get to go home huh Raimei?” A single spark from seemingly nothing was the only reply he got.




THE END
Until the next chapter begins in the coming future.
