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.

Jaxon slowly walked through the crowded halls with slight annoyance as the people here apparently don't know what personal space is, that said he had Tama sitting wrapped around his neck behind his large collar and walked on trying to avoid people as much as possible. 'Feh people... Why are they so touchy when it comes to even strangers, I mean sure friends maybe but a stranger....' shaking this thought from his head Jaxon showed up at the door to the room labelled on his transcript.

"Uh... Hello, I'm Jaxon Rhys I'm new here. Nice to meet you ma'am." After saying this he bowed slightly to the Hispanic teacher and took a seat near the windows and then turned on his music to pass the time in waiting with Tama. With having sat down Tama then jumped out of his collar and sat neatly on his desk and started petting him. "Ugh Tama what am I going to do about you? You're way too friendly with people and it bothers them, you seriously need to learn some self control buddy." Tama upon hearing this only purred and let out a small yawn before laying down on it to watch the door for other people to come in. Hey Jax why don't you try to make friends this year? I mean you're way too solitary it makes me bored when we have nothing to do. Jaxon merely coughed at this idea and simply replied, "I just don't get people, they always try to stick their noses where it doesn't belong and besides I have you to keep me company so I'm perfectly fine right?" To this Tama could only sigh slightly and curled up to watch people walk in.

Giselle Embers
The cheerful redhead walked through the corridors to her next class bright eyed and smiling like a fool. Inbetween her thin pale legs was a small little fix weaving between her legs to keep up. Fuse like half tripped over the fox a few times but she soon grew use to watching her steps. She smoothed some of her red hair and let Vix lead her to her lesson.

"Vix, come on do I really need to attend all these painful torture sessions?" She whined quietly so only the vixen would hear.
"Yes! But you'll like this one, you can use your Element." The shaggy red creature barked in reply. Giselle's eyes lit up with the excitement mainly because she loved using her element and secondly because she could meet some of the newer kids. Giselle had been attending the academy for a while but she still got lost sometimes so she knew how the new kids felt so she took it open herself to help them.

Giselle paused at her classroom door to address the vixen but she was gone already, so the the fiery tempered red head pushed the door open and walked into her class happy but bored. She found herself seat not even looking to see if they'd be anyone next to her. Giselle could feel the teacher's eyes burrowing into her soul waiting for a rebellious move but Giselle rolled her eyes and got comfy in her seat eventually resolving to twirling her flame red hair.

Opal

"Watch it!" the pink-haired woman- no, child- yelled, as she was hit by yet another person. "I know I'm tiny, but I'm also fairly hard to miss" she grumbled as she side-stepped another person. The small lady danced her way though the crowded corridors, slipping though the groups of people. She only got hit a few more times, and was only almost-trampled once, but it was enough to make her mad.

Of course, when she got mad, her powers began to act up. So, the next person to hit her was suddenly crushed to the floor. She didn't even notice until he screamed, and she quickly apologized before returning the gravity around him back to normal. She made sure to not touch anyone else, but she calmed down soon enough. Ella, the small red panda, hopped onto her light green book-bag. I really can't be here to calm you down all the time, Opal. The creature lazily curled over her shoulder as Opal approached her next class.

Opal smiled happily, now that Ella was there to keep her emotions in check with a fun variety of pheromones, and walked into the classroom. She waved to the teacher and took her seat, taking out her flower-covered notebook in one swift motion. Ella, however, had different ideas, and pounced onto her desk, effectively making it impossible for her to put anything down. Opal rolled her eyes and shooed the russet animal away-- the red panda ducked under her desk and began to paw at Opal's pale legs, causing her to giggle. Opal pulled her legs up and turned around, looking around at the faces of the others in the room.

Alexis Saitou

Alexis could practically hear Shadow's disapproving gaze bore into her as she failed to stifle a yawn. The two sauntered down the hall though it was quite difficult with the several new first years scrambling up and down the halls trying to find their classes. She simply smirked at the new students' distress, some even losing control of their abilities. Smoke came off of fire elemental students' clothes, some had clothes soaked to the bone, others had their shadows changing shape every few seconds, though most acted as if it were normal, which it was in this school.

"I'm beyond glad we don't have to go through all that again." She uttered, all the while prodding a water elemental student from a lightning controller to keep another unwanted power surge from happening.

"You were one of the worst offenders, you had little to barely decent control on either element you took under your wing." Shadow replied.

"Which is exactly why I attend this class every day." The duo entered the room of their last class of the day.

Alexis stopped by the front desk to greet the teacher with a small smile in comparison to the one she flashed towards her student. "Hi Ms. Brumfield, I look forward to spending another year with you."

"Same Alexis, hi there Shadow." The Hispanic greeted, leaning down to pat the husky's head.

The Magni and Demon took seats furthest away from the sunshine pouring in through the windows. Alexis softly waved her hand in a fanning motion, in cue a cool breeze gently whipped through the room effectively lowering her body temperature. Her twin sapphire orbs peaked at the other occupants of the room. Three of which looked vaguely familiar. Out of the remaining two she didn't exactly recognize, one was hunched over in this rather feeble posture, she could deduce he was most likely a first year. The other was scribbling down notes, though she couldn't exactly pin-point if the girl was a first year or not.

"You should take a few pointers from her, study more often." Shadow murmured under his breath.

"Fat chance, buddy." She countered, scratching behind his ear playfully. She leaned in her chair, burrowing her head in her arms, she tried to lull herself back to her disturbed sleep from her previous classes. After a couple seconds just laying there however, she could tell it was impossible to go back to her slumber, instead she closed her eyes to take a rest. "Tell me when the bell rings."

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.

Had she been snoozing again? Snoozing again.

Big deal...

Meant she had plenty time to navigate to the next class without little smurfs scurrying about, and risk electrocution, drowning, or being set on fire. Or worse.

Stumbling through the door, a – somewhat – tall figure ruffled the jagged mess of a blonde hairdo as a elongated yawn of possible boredom escaped the large gaping hole that was her mouth.

Same shit. Different year. With regular classes done and over with, all that was left to attend was..

Magic Classes

“You best pay attention Melody. A sloth does not make for a great Magni.” She said with the same tone one would use when annoyed by someone, wiggling her finger and furrowing her brow to mimic a disapproving teacher.

*Plop*

…..

Yuuuuck!

Melody wiped the residue of a popped bubble from her cheek, not even taking the trouble to look to her left as it. Just. Wasn't. A. Surprise. Any. More.

“Melly!” Rang a gentle, high-pitched singing voice, the warm and welcoming smooch enough indication that Lorelei had come back.

“Hi, Lore.” The Magni greeted gently rubbing the mermaid-like creature – A Siren, actually – on her little cheek.

“Lorelei will go with Melly to Magni Class, yes? Yes?” The demon pleaded, forming another bubble, this time filled with water around herself and her microscopically small pet fish.

Melody nodded, managing a smile in the corner of her mouth as she navigated to the class-room.

…...

“Hello, ma'am.”

“Hello Melody, hi Lorelei.” The always so joyful teacher greeted, getting a mere lazy wave in return from Melody, though a bubble-popping smooch from Lorelei.

At first sight of the flock of chaotic students, Melody re-adjusted her silver headphones over her ears – Which was code for, don't talk to me -- briefly tapping the Star-prints that were on the sides that housed a series of buttons. Pressing play, the blonde smiled contently at the scrambled mix of Techno music blasting through her ears.

Seat... Seat... Seat. Seat! Melody dropped somewhere in the corner, forcing herself to ignore whatever lay on the path between her and a lovely make-shift bed, and closed her eyes when she had found one near the back of the room, leaning back to have the chair rest against the wall.

Lorelei, however, had decided to do some exploring. Stationary exploring, mind you. Lorelei hardly took the opportunity to go more than half an inch away from her Magni. A whole lot of new demons. Though a few she did recognize from last year.

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.

Aidrid Dracnare

"A whole new life. Great isn't it?" Decenti asked as he flew above the crowds that almost stopped Aidrid from moving. "Mischief to be made and friends to meet. Wait, your not still angry are you?" He flew slightly lower to get a look at Aid's face. The face that still displayed rage created by the events that occurred during the last lesson. "Yes I'm still angry, you launched a pencil at the teacher!" Aidrid yelled out to the boy that was still flying above his head. People didn't really notice him as his surrounding were far to load for a single noise to stand out unless you were within a meter of it's source.

Next class up was all about magic. Something which was very new to Aid. So far it was just like any other school day, regular classes and hiding his power from everyone. There was no real reason for keeping his power a secret but he still did so. As he approached the class room, where this strange class was being held, he looked up to Deck. Receiving a huge grin he spoke. "No messing around you." A warning from Aid, not worth ignoring. But you used to be so fun...

He entered through the wooden door frame, curious to see what was inside. There wasn't anything fancy to be seen just a small class of students and a female teacher standing at the front. Aid and Deck didn't know anyone in the classroom as the hadn't met many people today. Finally, Deck landed softly on his feet and yelled out, "hey!" to everyone in the room. Aid firmly tapped his shoulder, not wanting him to draw too much attention to them. He hadn't seen many Demons like him around the school so Aid was nervous that everyone would see he was different and stare.

The teacher politely said, "Good afternoon." to which Aid replied with a simple nod before walking towards where Decenti had ran off too. It was a seat next to a white haired guy that looked to be around his age. Aid just took the seat and got comfortable to wait for the lesson to begin. Meanwhile, Deck jumped onto the desk playfully. "Quiet." Aid whispered to him as he turned his head to look at some of the other Magni in the room.

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.

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?”

Kieran waited for a response, and shortly after Nox licked the girl on the cheek he got one, the girl opened her eyes and looked at him quizzically, after a moment she spoke, "I'm sorry, do I know you?" Kieran simply smiled back.

"No I do not believe we have met, the names Kieran, and I'm sorry if I bothered you, but you looked kinda lonely over here, and I thought hey, maybe we could be friends." But before he could say more he heard a loud thunderclap and turned to find the teacher, Mrs. Brumfield, asking the class why they were here. "Well looks like were out of time now.... I didn't catch your name so you'll have to tell me after class. Anyway I should probably sit down before she gets pissed again." He walked over to an empty seat and sat down, he made sure there was an empty seat next to him for Connor. Once he sat down he raised his hand and before being called on he answered Mrs. Brumfield's question. "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 said with a chuckle, fully aware that his comment, while funny, was sure to land him in detention, and probably have some negative affects on his brother as well but hey that's life. After Connor finished his comment Nox snorted loudly and then quickly turned into his shadow form in the spot he was in on the ground and shadow walked over to the wall near Kieran where he took his place next to his partner. It's gonna be a good year, new teacher to harass, new friends to make. I'm excited now. he thought with a huge smile on his face as he awaited a response to his delinquent reply to Mrs. Brumfield.

Zzzz... Ponies... Unicorns. Whhaaa! Clowns.

….

*Crackle*

I'm awake! Oh. Sod this class...

The clap of thunder certainly woke Melody from her little snooze, even with her music set to hyper extreme ear-blasting volume. God how she disliked a disruptive way of waking up, the least you could do was shake her, then utter words of sweetness while waking her. But no, that would be too endearing.

However, Melody's surprised waking wasn't as horrendously over-the-top as Lorelei's. The wee-little demon literally bounced ceiling-high and quickly curled up on her Magni's shoulder, shaking and shivering included.

“Lorelei hates lightning...” She sang in a hushed tone, crawling closer and closer to Melody's ears. Though, if the girl would hear her demon's singing was a different matter entirely.

….

Booooooored.

Yep, this class was going to suck major... err- balls?

Melody kept herself in the laziest position she could muster, chair still leaning on the back wall of the classroom, not bothering to remove her headphones or even mute them. Funnily enough, she could hear perfectly fine.

“Who can tell me why you’re here for?”

They are here to learn the secret art of fishing for pink fluffy unicorns that are prancing about on fluorescent rainbow roads- Take a sodding guess, genius!

Can't be bothered, not in the least. They're here because of magic, good, jolly, lovingly magic.

Sighing as loudly as possible, the blonde girl shifted her headphones just behind her ears – Hey, still want to hear music, okay? – and glared at Miss Brumfield.

“Same thing as all other years, because some people here can't control their magic.” She retorted with a slight annoyance.

Riveting question, what's next? A thanks-for-trying award for retards? Or are we going to talk about safety again. Or, or, maybe they'll actually get to do some, oh I don't know- Magic?

So, can I go yet? No? Shame. Melody, despite not having a problem with anyone, couldn't be more set-off by this same bullshit, different year business. Just, let us use our magic. Control comes with experience, no?

After hearing the Thunderous sound of Mrs. Brumfield's clap, Tama yelped in surprise and hid inside Jaxon's collar. "T-Tama? I'm sorry Mrs. B but Tama here hates loud noises and usually freaks out just like this." After saying this Tama stuck his head out and weirdly looked to be in two places at once flickering between the two. Noticing this Jaxon started to pet the poor demon's head and ruffled his hair, "There there bud just calm down, it's over and it would seem we shouldn't piss off her again huh?" chuckling to himself he looked towards the class and heard a couple answers from the back row.

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

'Hmm? Both of them seem to know what's going on but why do they fight the teacher so much? I mean she's just doing her job and that's to help us.' Shaking his head Jaxon continued to pet Tama until he calmed down and he jumped back down onto the desk. After this he slightly blushed and again hid his face in his collar to hide his unease from everyone else even if it was obvious.

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.

Kieran sat down in his seat and smiled as he heard Mrs. Brumfield's reply “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.” She said with a smile but some probably interpreted it as a threat Kieran simply looked at Connor across the room That sound like a challenge to you? he thought. Then he turned his gaze back to Mrs. Brumfield who continued to speak
“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.”
She then proceeded to write out pairs on the board, Kieran however, could not find his name. well, that's odd.

Mrs. Brumfield turned around and continued talking, “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” She then snapped her fingers as sparks danced across her fingertips, sparks that Kieran was sure were more dangerous than the tiny ones he could make. Kieran stood up and spoke to Mrs. Brumfield, "Mrs. Brunfield? Why am I not on the list? I mean are afraid my powers are to scary for in class?" as he said this he turned into a shadow traveled to the back wall and changed his shape into a cartoonified dragon. "I promise not to scare anyone, just let me play to. Everyone else gets to have fun." He was having trouble concealing his laughter as he remained in the shape of the small adorable dragon on the wall and spoke to the class. The look on Mrs. Brumfields face was priceless, he could not be more proud of himself. He strolled off the wall ending the illusion of the cute little monster and winked a girl as he walked by her desk (Melody), "Anyone else's name get forgotten? I could partner with you? It'll be fun I promise!" He said as he finally returned to his seat and sat down. After sitting down he laughed, finally he could laugh, he had to keep throughout his performance and it damn near killed him.

Startled by what the turquoise haired boy Jaxon looked up at the board to find his name not up there too and then what caught his eye was the boy turning into a cartoon dragon. "I promise not to scare anyone, just let me play to. Everyone else gets to have fun." 'Oh tell me I have to go against this idiot, I mean I don't even like fighting....' Sighing out loud Jaxon chose to say nothing on the matter and turned to Connor, "I have a feeling he's your brother am I correct? You two are so similar." After saying that to Connor not even a second later did the boy sit back down at his seat with his question. "Anyone else's name get forgotten? I could partner with you? It'll be fun I promise!" That said Jaxon hid back into his collar and Tama then shouted out to him "Hey! Jaxon's name wasn't written on the board! I guess that means he'll be your partner!" After hearing this Jaxon hushed the small cat and blushed behind the collar. "Yeah I guess it's out of the bag now, I'll be your opponent so what's your name?" Jaxon stood up after saying this and followed on his question, "My name is Jaxon Rhys and this is Tama, nice to meet you."

Li made his appearance finally but near the academy and late too. He came late unfortunately missing all the good fun. It was his first time at this Academy, but the boy was sure to make others know about him swiftly and with no mistake. He didn't come here to have fun, or to enjoy being learned about magic. He was part of a chess game as an important piece and his duty was to win that game. It seemed that all the odds were with him or at least that was how the situation was currently looking.
Step by step he looked with his full attention at the style in which was built in. Until now everything has been just beautiful nothing important in the Western architectural style. Still Hwang was taking a nap as usual until Li waked him up, in his own calm and silent manner without annoying the dragon. All the time until they came here, he sat on the boy's head. After being waked he asked Li where they are, because he slept all the journey and so he didn't have even the smallest clue where they were."We are just in the right place.
"The boy quickly answered to his dragon, even if he missed everything the demon was going to discover soon where they are.
Now he just had to look for his class, apparently not seeing anyone who could help him with tips. Not a comfortable situation but still one that could have been avoided if he wouldn't have appeared later. And so another 15 minutes were wasted trying to find the class. Finally arriving he opened the door, the two of them saw many persons and demons. It seemed they came really late. Entering the class.
Li this to Mrs Brumfield "I apologize for being late. I am Li Wen and this is my demon, Master Hwang of Shangri La. Can I take a seat? The boy asked politely while looking at the others. The only major difference between them and him was his kimono. A Chinese dude along Westerns, that is what the boy was thinking while looking at them, there were many types of demons and persons."Boy they all look like children on the inside. With no experience in the real and crude life of this world."Hwang told Li in his mind, the boy instead answering loud"Yes you are right."

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.

Kieran suddenly turned his head upon hearing his name "“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.” After making eye contact with Kieran Mrs. Brunfield flicked her wrist and sent a small shock of electricity his way that hit him right in between the eyeballs. "OOOWW Mrs. Brumfield, that's not fair... I wasn't ready. Plus I thought you teachers weren't supposed to use magic against us unless we get out of control. I mean sure MAYBE I was being a little disruptive, but I highly doubt it was cause for magical punishment." Kieran had more to say but before he could continue Nox walked off the wall and jumped into the conversation. "Dammit Kieran, shut the hell up. Maybe if you could keep your damn mouth shut your professors wouldn't feel the need to punish you like that. Further it was quite entertaining to see someone mess with you for a change." Nox chuckled as he said this, much to Kieran's dismay. "Nox I don't need you to jump in, you're no help anyway. As I was saying, I totally could have dodged that stupid little shock if I was ready for it. I just ... had ... too ..." Kieran started to mumble towards the end of his sentence, for once he couldn't win the argument. Nox was right, it was entirely his fault he got shocked, and Mrs. Brumfield probably had permission to act as she did as a result of how the twins treated poor Mrs. Gregory last year.

Ignoring Keiran's ranting Mrs. Brumfield continued with her lecturing. 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 you will be punished” Just then a new student whom Kieran had never seen before walked in, he was wearing a kimono which Kieran instantly thought was a little odd. “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. Now let’s go to the practice fields no use in doing it in here”.

With this she walked out the door leading the class to the practice field. It was a beautiful place, with large arches, Kieran had been here before a few times, but always avoided participating, Kieran didn't necessarily think that fighting was the best way to learn control over your powers, plus he wasn't interested in fighting, he just wanted to have fun. When they arrived Mrs. Brumfield gave no further instructions, but she had listed the pairs on the board and told them that only two duels could go on at once. Kieran figured she felt that was all the instruction she needed to give, so he turned to Jaxon "Hey you wanna get our match out of the way first? That way we can just kick back and goof off the rest of class." He proposed his idea to Jaxon, what he didn't reveal was that he had no desire to actually fight during their duel, but that didn't mean he couldn't have some fun with it.

Came a sarcastic thought, eyes darting back and forth between the teacher and mister puppeteer. Really? Was his little detour that much against school regulations that punishment came in the form of literal torture?

Choo choo! All aboard the fun train, we're in for a wild ride! Jolly thoughts, pink clouds, and teachers applying shock therapy if you so much as sneeze wrong.

….

Fuck.

Well there went her one and only amusing thought for the day. Great job! Great. Sodding. Job.

As the teacher resumed her 'lesson' Melody tried to look attentive, a sole pale finger pressing against her chin.

Oh. Right. Fighting. Jolly-joy!

A sigh pushed itself from her mouth, the blonde awaiting for the majority of the class to move before following them to... Where else, the arena. That flamboyant, over-the-top arena that was about to gather moss.

Nobody ever used it frequently, or so Mel thought. Then again, half the magic classes were spend in a wondrous dreamland so... Yeah.

“Melly....” Came the gentle, yet drowsy singing voice of her demon companion. The wee-little pink creature yawned, arms stretching upward before reaching down to rub sleep from her eyes. A bubble, yet again appeared around the little siren, along with the pet goldfish that swum around Lorelei.

“Slept well?” The Magni asked.

“Yes!” Came the reply.




“Start when you are ready. Those who are waiting your turn go sit in the stands, and devise a plan of action.”

A yawn escaped Melody's mouth as the teachers hand pointed at her. Yeah, no. Not happening.

“I'll pass.” She muttered, headphones once again covering the blonde's ears as she dropped herself onto the stands and decided to, instead, watch the sole person that had peeked her interest somewhat.

Connor had to slam his head onto his desk to keep himself from laughing. Kieran had openly challenged Ms. Brumfield in front of everyone. Further, he turned into that silly little dragon of his and was making a total arse of himself earning a shocking bolt to the face from their teacher. "Yup. That little chibi is my brother all right." Connor said, barely able to answer Jaxon before burying his head in the crook of his elbow. Connor had to cover not only his mouth, but his whole face to contain his laughter. It hadn't even been day one and Kieran was already up to his fantastic hijinks. While Connor was down for the count, Hans paid attention to everything around them. He noted that their partner was Miss Melody. She was, according to his knowledge, stubbornly lazy, so her battle style and magic type were completely unknown to Hans. 'I really wish that idiot would stop encouraging his brother's foolish pranks and pay more attention. He'll never amount to anything like this. He's so talented, it's a waste for him to not use his gifts.' Hans thought, shaking his head in disappointment. 'We don't know anything about her and yet he's taking it this easy? Either he's too confident or... Or he has no intention to fight her. What an idiot.'

Finally, after a solid six minutes of eye-watering, wheezing, and completely unrestrained laughter, Connor finally managed to calm down enough to see that two things had happened. The first was that their teacher had given them a partner for dueling with, secondly, a new student had walked in. Connor waved to the new student, a huge smile on his face. Hopefully he would feel welcomed here, after all, it was a rather scary place. Turning towards the board, Connor noted his partner was Melody. Connor whipped his head around, noting the blonde girl sitting in the back of the class. It was her wasn't it? Connor made a silly face, pulling down his left eyelid and sticking out his tongue before smiling and waving. However, she completely ignored him. Connor mock pouted, whining like a puppy. Regardless, he really didn't feel like fighting.

Connor was never in the mood to fight, he only did when Hans pushed him too hard or people started being mean to Kieran. In fact, the first time Connor ever remembered transforming was when he had to protect his brother from some bullies. They were picking on him after school, and like always, Kieran never fought back. He just stood there, taking the hits until Connor noticed it. He didn't know what, but something snapped within him. He rushed to his brother's aid, his vision becoming red and narrowing. The next thing Connor knew, he was sitting on the ground, the bullies cowering before him, teeth marks ripping up with shirts. Connor had transformed into a dog, specifically a German Shepard. He hadn't hurt anyone, only torn up their clothes a bit and barked at them.





After a while, the students made their way over to the arena. Connor gasped. It was so big and cool. Suddenly, he really wanted to fight, but at that same time, it made him kind of sad. There was a place specifically for fighting here. It just wasn't what Connor would have expected for a school where fighting was prohibited. Regardless, he walked over to Melody, nudging her with his elbow. "So, I guess we're up, eh?" He asked, a grin on his face. 'Please don't want to, please don't want to, please don't want to...' Connor thought fiercely. "I'll pass." She muttered. "Awes- I mean, cool. Me too." Connor said, shrugging and placing his hand on the back of his neck. "So, uh... Ms. Brumfield, we pass! If we're not allowed to, then I forfeit." Connor said, a goofy look on his face. Though Connor appeared entirely composed, albeit silly, his mind was racing furiously. 'If I fight, then I'll have to use it, but I don't want to use it. How can I get out of this?' Connor thought, his mind burning with impatience and restlessness. All the while he appeared completely composed.

Jaxon nodded in slight agreement to Kierean "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?" He said looking over in her direction, she said nothing yet so he continued ""Also I'd like to have Tama participate with me he won't be fighting he just helps me with my magic is all." Then the two them turn to look at Connor who was taking his turn to speak, "So, uh... Ms. Brumfield, we pass! If we're not allowed to, then I forfeit." Just like Connor, doesn't want to hurt anyone, although now I'm even more intrigued by this blonde haired girl, most people here jump at the chance to use their powers. Kieran was snapped away from his contemplation by the sound of Jaxon's voice ""I hope you don't mind me prying but what's Connor's magic? I mean we're here as equals and to get along so why is he so willing to not fight?" Kieran thought for a minute trying to determine how to best answer Jaxon's question, I can't tell him about Connor's shape shifting, I'm the only one here who knows. I know, I'll tell him about the time Connor saved me. His mind made up Kiearn begins talking "Well you see when we were a lot younger than we are now Connor got into a fight at school, and he lost control and very nearly hurt someone badly. Since then he has tried to avoid fighting, plus fighting is boring." He said hoping to sate Jaxon's curiosity without revealing anything about Connor's magic.

Kieran suddenly changed gears turning to the direction of Mrs. Brumfield who has yet to have said anything after arriving at the arena, "Hey Mrs. Brumfield, Jaxon and I want to go first, what do ya say?" She looks at them and then responds with a smile "Kieran taking initiative? Is something wrong with you? Anyway I'll allow it but I am watching you" She said looking at them with daggers in her eyes.

Kieran looked back to Jaxon, "Well looks like we get to go first. Good luck!" after wishing his opponent he walked over to his brother and quietly spoke to him, "Wish I didn't have to fight either, but it would be suspicious of neither of us fought. And I guess you have more reason to not want to." Suddenly he noticed his new blonde haired friend was here with his brother. "Oh hey, you're the bored girl from class, I never caught your name, I'm Kieran." He said introducing himself, he smiled sheepishly at her as he awaited her name in response.

Ms. Brumfield

Turning to face Melody, a raised brow in her direction. The teacher crossed her arms and chuckled at the young girl’s defiance of teachings. “So you’re going to sit this one out or rather Connor will forfeit. Good enough for me, you’re lucky young lady that he forfeited, had he not you would have had an extra lesson later.” She gave Kieran her answer and she would watch him, knowing him being the trickster he was something bad might come out of it.

“Well since our two first pairs have forfeited their match it those who go next are Alexis and Lila. I hope you two don’t forfeit either so get down from the stands and start your duel” giving the girls an encouraging smile. Ms.Brumfield walked back over to where Jaxon and Kieran stood waiting for her to give the signal to start. She made sure to make eye contact with the both of them and nodded “alright when I give the signal the both of you may start. (This also goes for Alexis and Lila)Also Jaxon Tama may participate but like I said before he cannot help you directly in this fight.” Taking a step back Ms. Brumfield then snapped her fingers, a loud thunderclap echoed throughout the arena signaling to those fighting that they may start.

Ms.Brumfield walked back up to the stadium standing beside Melody and Connor. “Since the both of you forfeited I would like for you to come separately after class today or tomorrow to show me what you can do. This isn’t just a boring old fight, but it is to see how well you do under stress and in a different environment.” Making herself clear on that Ms.Brumfield then walked to te bottom of the stadium keeping watch on both duels.

Yeah, yeah. If she'd got a penny for every time someone said that, she would not only be the luckiest, but also the richest girl on the planet.

If only.

Taunts, or at least she thought they were, fell on deaf ears. If Melody was declared a coward, a weakling or anything that denied her strength, then so be it. Fighting's for brainless twits, anyway.

Or maybe she was just too lazy to bother with this supposed lesson, rather than actually finding a philosophical meaning behind why you shouldn't gut someone in sparring. Connor, the boy who she was partnered with didn't seem to be overly enthusiastic about fighting either, so. Guess that made two against one, no?

Or three, actually. Lorelei had kept on smiling and nodding and shaking to defend her Magni's position, giving her a smooch afterwards for not leaping at the chance to show her prowess as a magic user.

“I know, Lore.” Came the reply, a weak genuine smile forming from her lips.

Though Melody didn't skip out for the sake of her demon, it certainly was among the laundry list of reasons.

The blonde flopped onto the seats, Lorelei once again taking refuge on Melody's shoulder.

“... I never caught your name, I'm Kieran.”

Did he have some fetish for catching people off-guard? Or was it just her being lazy. Melody looked up, dull blue eyes locking at the sight of the jester guy.

“Melody.” Came a slow, and highly surprised response.

That was. Weird. The blonde stared him off as he left for the arena, again, a single eyebrow arching up.

“Since the both of you forfeited, I would like for you to come separately after class today or tomorrow to show me what you can do.”

Fine...

If it bothered the teacher that much, she'd go after class. Just. Shut up already.

Finally, some peace.

Melody sighed, eyes focusing on the sparring matches below.

So the action was going to begin as Li found himself in the arena. The boy was glad that Mrs Brumfield gave him that punishment. For him it was a divine gift from the gods, as this was the perfect situation to see what his teammates could do and to not show others his abilities. Li wakes Hwang by addressing him with Master Hwang and tells him about the current situation and what happened, because the dragon fell asleep in the class again.
So Hwang and Li were going to keep a close eye on the other students, as the boy's priority was to discover their abilities and to compare them with his own abilities."Master Hwang the humans are the essence of every battle."Hwang immediately responded on a direct tone "And every battle is the essence of their own foolish death."Hwang told Li as the both of them started laughing for a few seconds.
Li observed some of the students, trying to analyze their personalities, as it was something extra important to him. He asked Mrs Brumfield "Excuse me for asking this but after class could I stay at some extra hours? My Demon already has full control over his abilities but I'm not so good as Master Hwang so if you would want to help me with my studies."The boy asked his teacher trying in this way to look good, and also made a strategic move. Everything he was going to do from now on would be to his advantage or his disadvantage.
As the first fight was announced Li and his dragon were looking with a great interest at the two fighters and were watching them carefully, in order to see, remember and to analyze every single move. After looking at the students
Hwang mentioned a blond girl telling him, as they spoke in Chinese just to make sure that if someone heard them that person couldn't figure what they were speaking. "I don't know why she gave up. We must know everyone's abilities."Li listens carefully to Hwang then responds back in Chinese "But I can't go to her and ask,Please fight I really want to know your abilities. If you do this, I can offer you the chance to have a date with me."Hwang hears the boy and starts laughing for a few seconds. Hwang agreed with the boy, even if they wanted to knew everyone's ability, Li could not just ask her to fight proposing in exchange a date with him, it would be too suspicious. Anyway the boy was going to watch the matches from the bottom of the arena, with extreme attention.

Keiran was still smiling when the response from the blonde girl came "Melody" she said slowly and a little surprised, "That's a great name" He said and paused to think a minute Melody, I know that name from somewhere, but I don't think
I knew anyone by that name last year. OH! Now I remember."
Looking back to his brother again, "Melody, isn't that the name of the girl that beat up that asshole Alex last year?" he asked, before turning to head back toward Jax. "It was nice to formally meet you Melody, I can tell already that we're gonna be good friends." These were his last words to his brother and Melody before he walked away into the arena.

Upon arriving back in the middle of the arena where Jax was waiting for him start the fight. "Sorry bud I had to go take care of some stuff, you ready to get started?" Jax just nodded and readied himself, waiting for Kieran to make the first move. "Dammit I was hoping he would make the first move, but I guess someone has to start." He took a stance that everyone in the stands would immediately notice as a fake fighting stance that more or less silly than anything else. "Alright here we go everyone the fight to end all fights. The bout that could determine the fate of the world. The match between the best of the best, the premier fighters of the class is about to begin." He said in his best announcer voice. The majority of the students in the stands erupted in laughter and Kieran smiled at them. Then Mrs. Brumfield stepped in, "Kieran! I told you to take this seriously, if you can't take it seriously you can join your delinquent brother and Melody in the private lessons after class." She said while flicking her wrist and sending a bolt of electricity at the ground near his feet. "Geez Mrs. Brunfield, I'm just trying to set the stage and have a little fun." He said withe a fake pout on his face which earned him a second bolt of lightning fired his way, this time with no words, but Kieran knew that anymore theatrics out him and the bolt would hit him next time so he decided to get started. "REBEL 1! ... ... FIGHT!" He announced quoting his favorite fighting game, one he often played with his brother, although his brother was much better at than he was. After announcing the start of the fight Kieran instantly turned into a shadow on the ground and traveled behind Jaxon popping back up behind him and tapped him on the shoulder, "Jaxon, I'm back here now." He said with a slight chuckled on waited for Jaxon to swing at him, ready to dodge the incoming attack.

Kirie

Kirie watched the duel start with a blank expression on his face. he sat behind a girl with yellow hair(Melody) and a pair of headphones. Kirie I don't like fighting you know that. cant we just forfeit when its our turn? came a meek question from Raimei.I know you don't like to fight but its for the best okay so just bear with me he replied through their telepathic link. Raimei made a strange sound, suddenly Kirie jumped from his seat glaring at where he assumed Raimei was.

"Dammit Raimei that hurt. why'd you shock me for?!" rubbing his wounded hand, Kirie began to produce sparks of electricity but then finally calmed down. shoulders sagging he sat back down guilty for yelling at his demon, who seemed to be crying from Kirie yelling at her. "Gah I'm sorry Raimei I didn't mean to yell please don't cry" he reached towards her now visible form as it phased through the stands. her body cackled while strands of pure electricity reached outwards. "its okay Kirie I'm not crying, i just don't want to hurt someone is all" but the sniffles contradicted what she said.

Kirie sighed in relief and sat back down in his seat. Raimei circled around him for a while until she settled to floating just above his head. but eventually she faded, retreating to her home world of demons.


Ms. Brumfield

she turned to address Li a smile on her face. "of course you can would you prefer to do it private or with others" she asked. but then felt the hair on her neck stand on end and so she turned around to see Kirie an old student of hers beginning to spark in places as he glared at a spot in the air. however it seemed he calmed down and was sitting again though he seemed to be upset. now, now Anya let him be, its probably a little argument with his demon is all. turning back to Li, Ms. Brumfield rubbed her temples and for the first time in a long while wondered why she even bothered to teach these kids.

Lila slowly walked over to Ms. Brumfield, stopping playing with her fingers and looked up at the woman.
"Ms..." She begins but then stops, shaking her head with a fierce "actually, forget it.", and rushes to take her place, opposite Alexis.
Smiling at the girl, she stretches her arms out wide, faltering a little, she looks at Hideaki for support.
The best he gives her is a small nod and a meek "c'mon then Lila." through their connection.
She licks her lips and turns back to the girl, guessing she'll have to make the first move.
Adding to the theatrics, Lila dims the light, hanging over their heads, a little bit with a small point downward and proceeds in casting small orbs of light at either end of the room.
Grinning at Alexis, she giggles and says, "this should be fun - right?"

Lila's power allows her to create visual illusions and she was just trying to figure out how she could use that - of course she could always just absorb all the light around her but frankly, what good would that do? It exhausts her immensely and would only buy her a little while before the light was restored.
No, but now she was stumped as to what to do, and her arms were still outstretched as if to say she was going to do something brilliant.
Chewing on her lip, she again looked at the girl, trying to remember what sort of power she had - Air, was it? No, something to do with air but not only that.
Damn.
It was then that she was hissed at by Hideaki "You look like an idiot! Good gravy, pull yourself together girl."
Lila rolls her eyes but nevertheless taking his advice and producing four small light blasts, hopefully it would be enough to momentarily blind the girl and buy her more time.
She only wondered how she would react as she sent them out of her palm, closing her eyes she knew what they would do, just how helpful though, was beyond her.

Kieran was a little shocked at first, he couldn't believe Jaxon just walked right through his hand, which he quickly brought back into the shadow, appearing to be a simple circle on the ground. "Wow you can do that, fascinating" Jaxon said before disappearing and reappearing behind a pillar on the other end of the room.

"You might be surprised what I can do buddy." Kieran said cockily. Kieran had yet to move from his spot, he saw no need to, he could see and hear Jaxon just fine from where he was on the ground.

"Kieran you have potential but your tricks are easy to see through, they're more of an annoyance than a threat." Jaxon said shaking his head. "Hey Kieran, got a physics question. What happens when the surface a shadow is sitting on is disturbed and no longer there? The shadow therefore doesn't have a true standing point and will be fractured ... Now what would happen to you if that happened? Let's find out shall we?" Jaxon said with a yawn.

Kieran laughed as he reformed himself in three dimensions. "Jaxon I do believe you have your facts mixed up. Ya might want to complain about your physics professor cause that's not how shadows work." Kieran said getting his laughter under control. "If you remove the surface a shadow is on, it moves to the next surface behind it. Imagine if you will, a lamp on a desk, if you put a piece of paper on the desk and hold your hand up to the light, your shadow displays on the paper. You move the paper, and I know this is a hard concept but, the shadow would then be on the desk! Shocking I know, but anyway your little threat isn't that scary cause you see, your little ideas about a "true standing point" were a little absurd." Kieran walked over to one of the many pillars that Jaxon wasn't hiding behind. He put his hand on it and became a shadow, he the then moved across the pillar, and then moved in such a way that his shadowy form was half on the pillar and half on the wall behind it. "See? totally fine, no problem at all. And even if for some reason physics did work the way imagined, I could always just turn back into a people, it's not that hard." As he said this he moved off the pillar and wall simultaneously and his body appeared in front of the wall.

Kieran then realized he was near the stands where the students and Mrs. Brumfield were watching. He looked up and saw his brother and Melody and smiled at them. "OH MRS. BRUMFIELD! I think I'm done with this fight. He doesn't ever attack me, and then he just insults me with his falsities when I attack him. I participated, which is probably more than you expected from me anyway. With that Kieran jumped up the wall and entered the stands. He walked over and sat down in between Connor and Melody. "Sup Connor" He said to his brohter giving him a slight nod of the head. "Hey Melody, enjoy the show?" Kieran said, a smile on his face speaking as if they were already close friends. That was when things got hairy, Mrs. Brumfield was going to let it go when Kieran said he wasn't gonna fight anymore, but the moment he actually stopped fighting and sat down, she got upset.

"KIERAN FLANAGAN! How dare you disrespect me and my lesson plan like this. Detention after class. And no, you will not be engagin in supplemental lessons with the others, although unfortunately it will have to be in the same room, but rather it will be good old fashioned detention, I'm aware you are quite familiar with it." She said as she walked over to him, her body sparking slightly, Kieran couldn't tell if it was due to her anger, like many of the young magni here, or if she was trying to intimidate him, but either way it worked, Kieran was a little intimidated, of course he couldn't show it. "Oh Mrs. Brumfield, I would be delighted to join you in detention, however you are kind of in my way of watching the fight. I'm curious to see how it ends, considering I missed the beginning cause I was busy with my own. You can declare Jaxon the winner for all I care. I had my fun and now I'm done." Mrs. Brumfield was clearly still upset with him, but she let this comment slide simply saying "Be in the class room after class is done. I'll have a punishment ready for you."

"Thank you Mrs. Brumfield." Kieran said as she walked away. "Geez, now that she's finally gone we can watch the fight." Kieran said to no on in particular. That is when Nox decided to make an appearance, he walked over, laying at Kieran's feet. "You know Kieran, not all teachers break and quit like Mrs. Gregory did. This one means business, maybe you should listen to her occasionally. Who knows maybe you'll learn something." With that Nox closed his eyes, deciding that the matter was settled and took a nap.

Ms. Brumfield
She was going to call the duel off, ending it with Jaxon winning by default of some sort but then he did something she did not expect a student to do. Or rather something no student had ever done before and lived (Exaggerated) to do it again. Even more sparks flew off Ms.Brumfield’s person and it was not a good sign at all for Jaxon. So with that she let him go and deal with the problem while she watched the students react to what happened next.

Suddenly a large fiery form leaped into existence, seemingly coming from absolutely nowhere. A long whip like tail lashed out at the rock Jaxon had sent traveling through dimensions. Its body was huge even taller than seven ft. and animalistic, rippling with pure muscle as it landed gracefully into the arena. It slowly began to stalk Jaxon a low growl escaped its curled lips.

As it got closer and closer to the boy its body began to light up with a red glow starting from its head. Until finally it’s’ entire body glowed red in certain places and it stood before Jaxon. Towering over the boy it had what looked to be a disconcerting gaze, as if examining its next meal with obvious distaste. “Now do tell me boy. What have you done that has made my lady so upset she actually woke me from my sleep” . His voice gave away the gender of this massive creature; it held a deep knowledge in it fiery red eyes and his tone sounded like he was bored.

Ms.Brumfield let out a sigh and waved her hand at her demon. “Now, now Amon, don’t look at him like he’s your next meal. I want you to behave today or there will be no lunch for you” scolding the demon as if he were a child. ”now my dear no need to be so hasty with your punishments. And i promise, cross my heart” one red tipped tail seared his own flesh on the spot where most would find the heart with an x-shaped mark “ and hope to die. Oh who am I kidding there’s bound to be some student you wished I would eat.” his eyes flicked over towards a girl(Melody) with short blonde hair and licked his lips with a long forked tongue. Then he turned his massive head back towards Jaxon, ”well what did you do boy?” bringing his head level with Jaxons he glared at the boy and bared his teeth.

Looking at the demon with wide eyes he gasped not from fright but from excitement. "Wow you are just a beauty!" After stating this he then flashed warped closer to it and looked it over. "I was just fulfilling the obligation set forth with Mrs. Brumfield that we would have a duel, and duels are meant between two sides until one withdraws. Sadly there was no withdrawal from the opposite party so I kept on with the attack." Looking at the demon's body he kept going on. "Wow you are just amazing: slick body for agility, the fire of a strong elemental, the speed of a leopard, and the tail with pronged ends for ensnaring! Tell me: from what dimension do you reside? I've never seen something like you before you're just... fascinating, so please share away!"

After saying this Jaxon shook his head. "Sorry the scientist in me kind of took over, but you're Mrs. Brumfield's demon correct? Interesting you have such a characteristic as demons usually have a persona of the person they're with." Yawning and stretching he looked to Mrs. Brumfield "I guess I lost this round as my attack was so easily deflected." After saying this he bowed to the demon and warped back onto one of the pillars to watch the battles. "Mr. Demon you're more than welcome to join me up here, I would love to know more about you and if possible know if there are more like you."

Eyes focused on the fight between Kieran and whatshisface, Melody seemed slightly disinterested. Though that may have been for an awful lot of talking and what have you.

She bleeped out the talky bits, but that just made it worse. It felt like playing on of those games where every entity on the planet suffers from asthma and can only attack one turn after another.

…..

Didn't help that the other kid had the egotistical confidence of some card-carrying villain. – Oh cruel world, why must we live with these people.

I mean, yes, Kieran was just as over-his-head cocky as the other boy, but at least give him credit for enjoying it. The other one just seem to pass it off has a bore.

“OH MRS. BRUMFIELD! I think I'm done with this fight.”

Hadn't even realised it started.

Unless it was a battle of words, did this not count as a fight.

“Hey Melody, enjoy the show?”

An eyebrow arched up in Kieran's direction. No. no she didn't.

“One-sided. You'd have won if only for entertainment bonus.” The blonde girl retorted with a forced smile.

Liar! Went a little braincell. You didn't enjoy any of it! And stop smiling, you look like some doofus doing that.

Whatever,

They'd have forgotten anything she had said and done by the time they woke up, like she would their names, faces and anything else that would leave some type of impression.

Well something came along to add bitterness to the mood. Like the inevitable buzz-kill that she was, the teacher did not approve of a certain someone's way of withdrawing.

What? Did she want us to hold our pinky up and formally address the matter of withdrawal? What school is this? The College of the Bland and Uninteresting? – Cut him some slack. He didn't, sodding, do anything.

*Crack*

See? Now things are cracking, great job on annoying Melody – wait, it wasn't her, was it? Then, who?

The blonde felt a remaining rocks, more a pebble, tapping the back of her head which had her watch what the buggery Hell was going on behind her.

Nothi- OH MY GOD WHAT THE FUCKITY FUCK IS THAT!

The infinite power of whatever deity we're supposed to revere compels you!

Melody flinched, though her expression seemingly unfazed, at the sight of this- this thing. A giant creature that, compared to most other demons, was seemingly more along the lines of what the girl's mind could imagine. Dark, shady and utterly lustful for eating shit.

It's staring. It's staring, dammit! It wants me for dinner! Get it away!

“Wow you are just a beauty!”

Nooo..... The proper response is: “WAAAAAAH!”

A hand instinctively slapped itself in front of Melody's mouth, blue eyes staring away from the 'actual' demonic creature and watching as how much of a fool she had made out of herself.

She screamed, she actually screamed, didn't she? And- Why did she had her hand tightly clenched around Kieran's arm?

“Sorry!” She retorted in embarrassment, releasing the boy's arm and turning away from both him and the demonic entity. God did she wish the ground would open up and swallow her right about now...

Lorelei awoke from the act of her Magni, jumping up as she witnessed first-hand what Melody just screamed at and, on instinct, began her less than pointless attack on the frightening creature – Which was nothing more than summoning a splash of water into said demon's face, along with a serious evil-eye from the little demon herself.

Kirie

He like Melody was freaked out by it but unlike her Kirie didn’t scream. Rather he felt more worried about Raimei than anything else. Looking around he could see her form flickering in between dimensions. Kirie who is that, he’s scary voice shaking with fear she looked at her Magni with scared eyes.

"don’t worry Raimei he is a friend albeit a scary one but a friend none the less" turning his red eyes onto the teacher to get some back up on the matter. What scared him was the fact that Ms.Brumfield simply shrugged her shoulders. "There is little i can do if he goes on some rampage but the barriers will keep him out" giving Kirie and the others a reassuring smile.

Ms.Brumfield

At least she hoped it was. Looking back at Amon and Jaxon she wondered what was going through their minds right now.

Amons nostrils flared as he breathed out deeply then inhaled again taking with it the boys scent. "aww shucks your my new best friend, wanna a cookie?." rolling his eyes sarcasm thick in his voice. Amon stepped away then suddenly snapped his head around at Jaxon gnashing sharp teeth in the boy’s face. [i]"in your dreams kid, your really are an idiot to think i would waste my time with the likes of you and even more so considering I am the only one of my kind. There is no two of the same demon. Think of it like snowflakes no one is the same twice."snarling.

Then someone screamed and he laughed at such a reaction. Turning his head, a savage smile on his lips that showed nearly all his teeth that were larger than a grown man’s hand. Amon chuckled darkly licking his lips and turned his back to Jaxon when something wet splashed right into his face. Suddenly his cool demeanor changed drastically and he was now snarling.

Amon lunged at Melody or rather he demon, but the barriers around the stands kept him from touching either girl.”try that again girl, if this barrier wasn’t up I would have torn your little demon to pieces like the little toy it is” glaring at Melody then he let out a yelp of pain jumping away from the stands. Tails lashing they glowed even brighter signifying just how irritated he was. Thankfully no one was close enough to his tails or they would have been sliced to pieces.

Ms.Brumfield held out her hand, sparks and electricity dancing across her fingers. Her face said it all, Ms.Brumfield was angry but not really this wasn’t her at her worst. “Amon if you so much as harm my students in any way I will not hesitate to kill you in some manner or way” her voice was low and threatening. Amon shook his head, not scared in the least by her threat but he took her seriously considering he did manage to hurt him moments ago.

”as you wish woman I think I’ll take my leave now” bowing his head at his master. Amon, in a single step backwards disappeared from view as he traveled back to his own home in the demon realm. Ms.Brumfield let out a sigh of relief and turned back to her students. “Well sorry for that little distraction but back to class everyone. We are still continuing with the lesson.” Clapping her hands together as a way to get their attention.

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."

Connor watched the fights with growing nervousness. He was glad he was able to get out of fighting in front of everyone. Further, he wouldn't have to use his magic. The best part was that Connor wouldn't have to fight Melody, whom his brother was showing increasing interest in. However, as his brother's fight drug on, Connor became increasingly bored. His brother wasn't the type to initiate a fight, and his opponent only fought defensively. It wasn't very fun to say the least. Connor was sure his brother would be more than capable of beating on the kid, however, that wasn't his way of doing things. "Finish up already!" He called out to his brother. "You don't need to stretch this out any longer." Connor mumbled to himself. Hans nodded solemnly in agreement, perched upon his master's head. "I agree. Young master Kieran isn't a fighter. Your miscreant of a brother could be so much better than he is, he simply chooses to fool around." Hans sighed. Kieran, apparently voicing their concerns, withdrew. He wasn't the type to push for a fight to begin with, so the fight was more than over. Then, suddenly, he was there, sitting between him and Melody. Connor chuckled. "Nice." He whispered under his breath.

While the two were talking, Connor's head snapped up. He felt something. Sniffing the air, Connor looked over at Jaxon, whom he noticed was doing something strange. Then, suddenly, Connor felt a surge of power followed by the sight of a rock hurtling toward the back of his brother's head. Standing straight up and growling, Connor reached out with his right hand, water streaming out from the cuff of his sleeve. It formed a sleeve directly in front of the rock. Connor's plan was to use the water to catch the rock and then beat the tar out of Jaxon. "Oi! What the hell do you think you're doing!" Connor yelled. "The fight is over! You don't just attack an unwilling participant!" Connor was furious, but not as much as his teacher was. Mrs. Brumfield literally crackled with anger and summoned her demon. Connor was shocked, and more than a little terrified of the creature. It looked like something out of one of his nightmares. The creature snapped out it's tail, obliterating the rock in an instant, extracting a sigh of relief from Connor. Once he was sure the danger had passed, and everyone wasn't paying attention to him, he allowed the water to dissipate into nothingness. The water was formed from Connor's own energy, so once he had no need for it, he simply let it fade away.

Connor sat back down, undoing his uniform tie and allowing himself to relax. He usually didn't get so angry, but picking on Kieran was the last thing Connor would ever allow to happen. He sighed. "Feeling calmer, Connor?" Hans asked. "Yeah. I hate getting so riled up. I don't like fighting." Connor whispered to his demon. "It could have been worse. You could have flipped." Hans whispered back, hinting at Connors own powers. "Yeah, thank heavens there." Connor sighed.

Ditching his brother and the still cowering Melody, Connor walked over to Mrs. Brumfield. "Hiya Teach. I figured I'd sign up for the demonstration you want us to give you. I'd preferably like to do so alone. I don't like using my magic at all much less in front of lots of people." Connor said, making a point of ignoring Li, who seemed very interested in everyone's powers.

Li is looking with a great interest at the arena anxious to see everything. It seems that it was Aberdeen’s match so she wouldn’t sit near him. A good chance to collect information was missed. Still Li was thinking if she didn’t realize what was happening. If she didn’t become suspicious about him. Still the two of them were having a conversation one that was a good thing for Li. Also that boy Connor didn’t want to go after hours with the others and with him. Maybe Connor tried to avoid him in order to not show him his powers.
Even words were used to collect information and they were telling Li what he was wanting. Then suddenly Li started to feel cold, it was like he was in a cube of ice. Shortly after the boy, even he was in the arena watching the matches, found himself in a Chinese restaurant in Honk Kong. He lived again what happened 4 days before he came to the academy. The restaurant during that time was a very quiet place as only he and another girl being there as the only customers.
The girl had a red hair, blue eyes, and was wearing typical Chinese clothes. A beautiful and well made Chinese pink kimono with a flower on its back. She was meeting with Li, but in fact this was just another simple assassination or so he believed that everything will be easy.
Hwang was with him sitting on his shoulder as the dragon always does, and another 10 members of the cult were hiding in the restaurant waiting for the opportunity to kill her. She was a Magni like Li too but she was against the cult and should have arrived with Li too at the academy, Hwang managed to get rid of her demon, now all they had to do was to kill her, in order to prevent her from meddling in the cult's business.
Li took a glass a wine drinking it slowly as he was looking at the girl."Mei Ling, do you know what happens with a lotus?"He looked at him strangely then responded to his question"No, what happens?"
That was the signal, as Hwang was using his fear ability on her, the girl's ice powers were neutralized, however she somehow managed to move even with the fear ability on her and started attacking Li, although she could not use her powers. She punched the boy several times in the face and the stomach but the other cult members came and stabbed her with a few swords in the chest."It dies."Li said while lifting from the ground, the other cult members took the girl's body into one of the cult's hiding. As Li was leaving the restaurant, he knew that Mei which was an obstacle for the cult, was no more alive. He finally got rid of her.Still the girl was supposed to come with him at the academy.He was asking what the teacher of his class would say about this.
This was, what the boy saw and lived his with eyes again, strangely while he was in the arena. After he came back to his senses he told to Hwang in Chinese "I saw Mei Ling, everything. The meeting and how we took her down."Hwang responded in Chinese"Strange very strange, that happened 4 days ago, still you lived that experience like it was happening today."After Hwang's response Li started to breathe very slowly and heavily. His heart started beating faster then usual, it seemed that after the recent experience he was suddenly having a panic attack."Mei Ling, she did something?"
Li asked Hwang before fainting and falling. Hwang kept his calm attitude while shouting"Mrs Brumfiled Li fainted. I think something is happening."Hwang started asking for himself what the heck did just happen, and if Li was going to be ok.

Lorelei's protective demeanour swiftly turned into fright from the beast she so instinctively attacked.

“Eep!” She... yelled, cowering behind her Magni's hands that were now placed before her. Protection, albeit it would do little if that abomination of a demon managed to break through the barrier.

Melody was still recovering from her freak-out, but had managed a brief gaze back at the red-glowing demon – Turning towards it when it lashed its tail at the blonde and the wee-little siren, though returning back to cower immediately afterwards.

Luckily, it couldn't break the barrier. That Miss Brumfield was quick enough to intervene was an added relief, lightning managing to subdue the enraged creature and let it remain from whence it came.

The blonde girl looked at her companion, smiling nervously as the rodent-sized demon replied she was okay. Shivering, but not hurt in any way.

“I'm glad...”

…..

“Are you okay?”

Melody turned her head up to notice that Kieran had sat back down beside her, enquiring about her well-being.

Of course she was okay. Pfff! Just unpleasantly surprised was all. Maybe. The girl collected her self a moment, slowing her breathing, thus lowering her racing heartbeat.

“That crazy fuck is gone now Melody, it's all right.”

“Just a jump-scare, nothing more.” She retorted with a forced smile.

“But, I'm okay. Thanks.”

You're smiling like an idiot. Again.

Luckily, her idiotic smile was disrupted by a jealous Lorelei who thought her Magni's new acquaintance was a tad too close for her liking. She pushed at Kieran's upper leg, trying to get him to shove, preferably, a metre or two.

“Lore. Stop that.”

The blonde girl gently wrapped one hand around the little demon, placing her back on her right shoulder. “Be nice to him, okay?”

No. No she wouldn't. The siren stared briefly at Kieran, sticking out her tongue before curling up on Melody's shoulder.

“Sorry. She's a bit – Ah.... Protective.” She retorted, though questioning Lorelei's sudden jealousy. She did it often, but Mel always found it annoying at best. Even if it was a staple of Lore's personality, not every guy was like... Well, that one guy. Melody didn't bother to remember his name, didn't need to.

“So, guess we're both up for after class lessons, eh? Just. Peachy...” She sighed, blue eyes glancing at Kieran, though swiftly turning back to the arena when he'd turn his attention to her.

Ms.Brumfield

looking to Connor with a smile on her face she understood his reasonings. "sure Connor however you want to do it is fine by me just give it your best shot. now go sit back down alright" gently pushing him back towards his seat. Ms.Beumfield still wasnt in the best of moods, not after what Jaxon did and the way Amon acted towards his students.

sighing her attention was needed else where when Hwang yelled out for help. looking for the small dragon she glared at him finding him down in the arena area. "dammit Li what are you doing down there i told everyone specificly not to go down there but to atay in the stands-" running down the stairs and into the arena Ms.Brumfield now knew why Hqang called for help.

seeing one of her students on the ground unconcious made her worry as well as bring some unpleasant memories to come up. "oi what happened? tch he'll need to go to the nurse" looking around Ms.Brumfield realized she couldnt leave her students alone it wasnt allowed. "ah lets see what to do. . . " then spotting Connor and Melody an idea popped into her head. picking Li in her arms Ms.Brumfield laid him out on one of the seats. "Connor!Melody! come here for a moment" when and if they did come she would have asked the two to take Li to the nurses office and stay there for a little bit until coming back to the arena. once the group was to leave MsBrumfield let out a sigh glad she got it over with.

then she remember something else she hadnt done yet. Jaxon scowling she looked for the boy and saw him on top one of the pillars. cupping both hands around her mouth after getting as close as possible to him she called out to her student."Jaxon! get your butt down here! Now!" shaking her head once. if Jaxon was to follow hwr directions she would have had him go with Connor and Melody and have the two take him to the HeadMasters office and let Connor explain what happened. Ms.Brumfield would have asked the two to wait while Jaxon came down and so she could explain their new added instructions and once she told them she would send them on ther way.

glad she got that done with only one duel was left and she wondered how Lila would defend herself against Alexis's shard of ice. "but only one duel is going hmm whos next" she mumbled to herself. going back to where she originaly been standing Ms.Brumfield looked at the pairings and smiled. looking up the teacher searched for Giselle and found her talking with her demon. "Giselle its your turn to get up so start heading down to the arena so you can start your match. remember no demon is to help you if i find out your demon tried helping you even from the stands you will get detention." Ms.Brumfield liked giving certain students detention because unlike most teachers hers was rather strange.

But now to find Venice, and she found him. walking over towards her green haired student she smiled at his demon. "Venice its your turn to go up so start heading down to the arena your oppenent should be there waiting for you" gently pushing him towards the arena.

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.

Unconvincing cough.

No really, she totally wasn't staring, and quickly averted her eyes away from Kieran because she didn't want him to know she was checking him out. Maybe.

Tomaaaaatooo! Went a little braincell. Oh, she was... blushing. Slightly. Maybe. She thought she was, anyway.

Nonononononono! That won't do at all. You'd have to try more creativity to get Mel to blush, buster! No way that inevitably awkward, cute stare-down had her fainting in the most dramatic way possible.

Pat... pat... pat?

“Whaaaat...” The blonde whispered at her demon, noting that she was 'assisting' her in averting attention from Kieran.

“Lorelei wants to go play!” The siren sang in her Magni's ears, her bright blue eyes briefly glancing over to Kieran before darting back to her dear companion. “Pweaaaase?” She pleaded, pulling a rather obvious puppy-face.

“Not now, Lore. Class isn't over yet.” Melody retorted, again in a hushed tone, sighing at the realisation that class, indeed, had yet to end.

Fuck.

The pink, pinky-sized demon sighed ever so deeply...

“... I probably should back off a little, but I don't think I will.” Kieran butted in, winking at the blonde girl who- OMYGODOMYGOD! Lore! Don-

Too late. Too. Sodding. Late.

Before anything or anyone could react, Lorelei had gone about summoning a splash of water for the boy who so rudely stole away her attention time.

“Watch out!” The blonde girl jumped from her seat, dragging Kieran away from the area said splash would be, but managed to trip over thin air in the process – Thus, resulting in an epic heroic failure.

Well, not completely. Kieran was safe from Lorelei's attempt to teach him a lesson, though one could arguably state that having Melody 'on-top' was just as bad.

“Ouch... Stupid. Feet.” The girl muttered, only realising who had broken her fall after opening her eyes.

….. Great. Epic. Job. Mel! Just perfect.

“Dangit.”

A huff released itself from her mouth, eyes closing again as Melody stood up and tried her best to attempt to give zero fucks about that- that slip.

Don't say what I think you're gonna say.” That line was not only cliché as fuck, but too frigging obvious.

Shrugging off the awkwardness of the moment, her hand pulled at Kieran's. Helping him up before walking to the teacher and her little 'problem'.

Help the new guy? Yeaaaaaah, no.

Give it a positive side, though, it meant she didn't have to stick around for this class – Maybe even sneak out when the lot of them had dragged the poor sod to the nurse.

"Jaxon! get your butt down here! Now!"
Jaxon looked dully at Mrs. Brumfield and instantly warped in front of her. "You called ma'am? If it's about the duel whatever I'll go see the principal myself, no need to take these guys with me. Also I could bring that Li guy as well carrying him shouldn't be a problem." rolling his eyes he looked to the other students and yawned. 'Why is everyone so nonchalant about someone passing out?' "..." Shaking his head Jaxon looked to Mrs. Brumfield and sighed. "I'll head out with Li so don't worry about anything I'll take my leave now." Heading towards Li he began to pick him up. 'Uff! He's heavy...' struggling slightly he picked him up and headed back to Mrs. Brumfield. "Alrighty I'm headed out now, but speak now before I head out if you got something to say."

Looking to Connor with a smile on her face, Ms. Brumfield spoke. "Sure Connor however you want to do it is fine by me just give it your best shot. Now go sit back down alright?" Connor smiled as she pushed him off towards the seats. Ms. Brumfield might not actually be that bad. Sure she'd gotten a little upset at Jaxon and summon that crazy strong demon, but she had the student's best interests at heart. As he headed back towards his brother and, their seemingly new best friend, Melody, Nox approached him and spoke. "Connor, Kieran was too lazy to get off his ass and ask you himself or something, but he wants to know if you are alright, further he wants to thank you for your help with the rock that ass hole sent his way, causing this whole mess." Connor chuckled and looked to Hans, who was sitting on his shoulder. "No worries little brother." Hans replied to Nox. "It's what we're here for. Kieran knows he can always count on Connor. Period." Hans finished. However, as the group was about to walk back to their seats, Ms. Brumfield called Connor back.

"Connor! Melody! Come here for a moment." Connor sighed and turned back around, signalling to Nox that he should join Kieran. "Yes Ms. Brumfield?" Connor asked as he closed the distance to his teacher. "Take Li to the nurse's office with Melody and Jaxon and stay there with him for a little bit to make sure he's ok before leaving him for the nurse." Ms. Brumfield instructed Connor. "Then you are to take Jaxon to the Headmaster's Office and explain what has happened and why Jaxon is being sent there. Then you can come back. Clear?" Ms. Brumfield finally finished. Though the instructions were long, they were not complex, Connor nodded in approval. "Yes ma'am." Connor replied directly but respectfully. He walked over to where Li was, but Jaxon had already hefted him over his shoulders. "Need any help with him? Perhaps a partner chair carry? If not, let's be off, I'm getting tired of putzing around." Connor said, disdainfully, though if asked, Connor would have helped him carry Li, whatever made the situation easier. However, Connor still wasn't very happy with Jaxon. As soon as everyone was ready, they left for the nurse's office. Dropping off Li was the first priority.

After Li fainted Hwang was thinking what could be the reason for this mysterious thing. Analizating everything and taking into consideration their last kill he managed to find something. It seemed, or it was just a possibility created in Hwang's mind through a lot of thinking and effort that maybe Mei Ling was responsible for that. Her ice magic could have activated an ability which would make her opponent vulnerable in a hunt or a long time fight, but this only delayed their mission, anyway Hwang's first priority was and will always be Li, knowing that he was also Li's first priority because of their long time friendship. Mrs Brumfield called a few students to carry Li to the nurse's office, Hwang remained quiet all this time, he was going to speak only when necessary at a time like this. At first she assigned only Connor and Melody but after a discussion 4 persons were going, Kieran, Connor, Melody and Jaxon only two of them carrying him.
If Hwang would have observed something strange, he would have told them without a sign of fear"Don't carry him like a garbage. If you do , then I will show you something special."Still this wasn't The case as something like this didn't happen. " Boy please call the Headmaster to the nurse's office Urgently, I got something important to tell him."Hwang told to Connor since he was going to follow the others, to the nurse's office, but he or Li had to report Mei Ling's disparition, if not they could be suspicious, since Mei Ling and her demon were supposed to arrive with them at the academy. Li was still unconscious, meanwhile his hands were starting to be covered slowly by ice and soon his whole body Hwang realized everything.
The ability at first is turning the person into an unconscious state, then the Ice magic in his body will make him unable to move, so she could find and kill him easily. Too bad for her That the ability activated days after her death. "Let's hurry to the nurse's office."Hwang reminds them Again where they should go keeping his calm through hoping that as soon as Li arrived, the nurses
Would do something about the ice which was covering slowly but surely his body. Meanwhile Hwang was telling in his mind"Mei Ling your special ability is worthless now,since you are dead but nice try honorable warrior."the others could see that he was smilling,the reason being that Li was fine and that her ability didn't activated when and if she would have lived.

"Tch..." Connor scoffed as his brother gave him THAT look. The look that said, "Please get my back just this once? I'll never ask you for anything again, I promise!" The one he gave Connor almost weekly. Connor sighed. "Yeah, alright, let's get you to the headmaster's office." Connor said, turning to face Shugo. They walked for a moment before Connor stopped and turned around, calling to his brother. "Oi, Bro!" Connor called to Kieran, though he knew his brother wouldn't turn to face him. "When we're all done here, you're going to have to do THAT thing!" Connor called after him, smirking evilly. Both brothers knew exactly to what Connor was referring. It was a punishment game, and Kieran was going to have to eat something completely horrendous. When Connor and Kieran were younger, their mother attempted to make lutefisk. Of course the boys' father, who asked for it and grew up eating it, loved the stuff and said it was better than what their grandma ate. Connor and Kieran on the other hand puked after smelling it. Now the two of them only write home asking their mother to bring it on special occasions, like when one has done something horrible. When that happens, the offender has to eat it while the other watches. You'd think the boys would eventually learn to like it, but not so. It's still used for punishment to this day. Connor chuckled evilly to himself as he stood, watching his brother stumble. "You scare me sometimes Master." Connor heard Hans say over his chuckling. "Oh?" Connor said, and ceased laughing. "What was that Hans? I didn't hear what you said." Connor asked, giving Hans a death glare. "Stop that now Master Connor, remember what your mother said about picking on me!" Hans exclaimed, becoming rather scared. "Alright," Connor said, and he stopped making faces at the little fox. "Let's go get this over with." Connor sighed.

"Hey slowpoke hurry up, time may be a luxury for some but for me it just means that it's time wasted that could've been put to use somewhere else." Connor heard Jaxon say, and he sighed, turning back around to face his unwanted guest to the headmaster's office. "Yeah, and who's fault you think this is in the first place," Connor mumbled to himself, just loud enough for Hans, who was perched on Connor's shoulder, to hear. Usually, Connor liked giving that place a WIDE berth. Not that he was afraid of the headmaster himself, no, it was his Secretary. She was the one in charge of punishment at school here, and Connor knew if she even SMELLED him, he'd be in for a world of trouble. "Yeah, yeah, I'm coming." Connor said, walking over to where Jaxon was and continuing towards the headmaster's office. He said nothing for fear of losing his temper with Jaxon. Though he didn't look it, Connor was NOT pleased with Jaxon. Connor usually wasn't pleased with anyone who picked on his brother, for any reason. Kieran was really torn up about getting picked on in the past. It wouldn't do to have him repeating those kinds of experiences here in school now. Now that they'd left that life so far behind. Connor walked in silence until they were about ten feet from the Headmaster's office. It had taken them a few minutes to traverse the odd, numerous hallways, but they'd made it. With that buffer distance between himself and the large, decorated double doors and the plaque on the wall that simply read, "Headmaster" next to the doors, Connor stopped. "Here's the office. Brace yourself, the Headmaster's aura is... stifling at best. He's got more magic than he knows what to do with." Connor said, taking another brave step forward. Instantly, Connor felt a bead of sweat form on his forehead like it always did when he was sent here. "Well, come on." Connor said, "No backing down now." Connor made his way to the doors and pushed them open, leading Jaxon inside. He walked over to the Secretary, who looked him up and down as if to say, "What have you done this time?"

"It's not me ma'am." Connor explained. "This one," Connor said, pointing at Jaxon over his shoulder with his thumb, "disobeyed the rules of engagement in a duel between students, supervised by Ms. Brumfield and attacked a student when their duel had been decided. I'm just here to bring him to the headmaster. If you're done with me, I'd like to go." Connor said to the Secretary, who was shocked to find that Connor the Troublemaker wasn't the one who was being sent to the office. "Very well," the older woman croaked. "Why don't you head back to class Mr. Flannagan, and tell that miscreant brother of yours to watch his step." The Secretary said, pointing a gnarled finger at Connor and poking him in the chest with her boney appendage. "Yes ma'am." Connor said, the Picture of innocence, though Hans was curled up on his master's shoulder trying not to tremble and make his master appear weak. However, the headmaster's presence was particularly strong on little demons like Hans. Even Connor was beginning to feel the pressure, though he'd never show it. He exited swiftly and calmly, as if he could have stood in that monstrous aura until the day he died. However, once they were outside and behind a closed door, Connor crouched down and pulled Hans off his shoulders. "Hans, you ok?" Connor asked the now trembling fox, who was trembling. "You idiot." Connor scolded. You were acting tough in front of Tama and Jaxon weren't you. Hopefully we won't ever have to go in there again, but that was foolish, don't do it again." Connor warned his little demon. "Yes Master Connor," Hans panted. "Let's go back to the stadium now, shall we?" Connor asked. The other students' auras aren't as oppressive as THAT guy's. Connor sighed, shaking his head as he and Hans headed back towards the stadium, sitting down by a girl with long black hair and blue eyes once they got back. Though her little white cat of a demon eyed them, Connor just smiled and remained silent. Connor and Hans said nothing, they didn't talk to anyone, and they didn't enter in an outrageous or silly way. Connor was in the midst of a transformation. Though he'd never tell his brother, Connor wanted to be strong, stronger than the headmaster. He was planning on taking school... seriously. Connor leaned back, allowing Hans to climb up on Connor's belly to rest. The little one had had it rough. Connor absentmindedly scratched him behind the ears, causing Hans's leg to thump ever so slightly, it only happened twice, and Connor stopped scratching as soon as it happened. He knew his little demon didn't like to be treated like a pet... except for when it came to helping eat leftovers. Suddenly, without any warning, Connor spoke. "Hiya," He stated simply, a smile on his face. "I'm Connor, any reason you're sitting all by your lonesome?" Connor asked, turning to face her and smiling once more. No reason to not be friendly when you were meeting someone new.

Kirie

He was getting bored with all the duels but finally it was his turn to go up against someone by the name of Jayson. Standing up, the white haired boy brushed himself off even though he wasn’t dirty in the least bit. Looking around he made eye contact with Ms. Brumfield and waved at her in greeting. She smiled at him and stepped out of his way so he could reach the arena.

”Hey Raimei you there or are you still hiding somewhere” he teased his demon even though he could die for it by accident if he riled her up too much. I’m right here Kirie, and please stop teasing me I don’t like it her voice quivered a bit. “hey I’m only messing with you. Also what’s up with that kid, when he fainted, you started to buzz a bit. Did he scare you or something? he stared at his feet while walking, kicking up a little dirt from the ground as he reached the center of the arena. well, I saw something strange. I don’t know what it was but it was really weird. Also he looks familiar I don’t know why but I don’t like it much. This is turning into a bad story can we end this story I don’t think I can handle this kind of story Kirie

“What are you talking about Raimei? You can’t just end a story right when it’s just getting good. Besides if he scares you again I’ll go have a chat with him and tell him to stop what’s he’s doing that’s scaring you alright.” Kirie smiled at her and was about to pat her head when he realized the consequences of that would have been death or something like that. Raimei noticed then and let out a sniffle and disappeared with the sound of buzzing in her Magni’s ears.

Shaking his head Kirie stretched a bit doing a couple warm ups so his body would be prepared for anything. After a few routines, Kirie stopped and looked down at his hands. these hands of mine are already red. I wonder, will I lose control and hurt my opponent? Or will I be able to do the minimal damage? Think static shocks Kirie those are harmless, right? They don’t hurt too much so think static shocks . He had a grim smile on his face, and stared at his hands a while longer and suddenly electricity jumped and sparked and he closed his hands into fists and looked up with determination in his eyes. Now all he had to do was wait for his opponent to come down and for Ms. Brumfield to give them to go to start.

(OOC: Okay Victorant, I’m skipping the last part of your duel and I’m still waiting on Possibility and Fate to get theirs in but theirs should be quick. Also for those who are in the school and not at the arena do try to wrap up things by Sunday.)

Character Portrait: Lila Mei Kyoto Character Portrait: Opal King Character Portrait: Aberdeen Andrews Character Portrait: Ms. Brumfield

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.

Li was dropped to the nurses office,alongside with Hwang,his loyal companion which was going to stay there until the boy would wake up.He could not believe that something like this happened even now,just right now,Hwang was thinking what will happen if and when the headmaster will find out.Now he surely had to answer the nurses questions,so he would lie if they were going to ask him something touchy.One of the nurses approached Hwang asking hi about the situation.He responded"He suddenly fainted."Not giving too many details,the other nurse looked at Li.Checking his state,she realized that he was immobilised somehow by the ice on his hands,the sleep and maybe something else.Looking at him closely she told to his dragon that it was possible,for the boy to not wake until the next morning.Hwang could not believe what he heard, until the next morning, maybe that ability was more powerful than he could expect. In the meantime Li was lying on the bed, still unconscious into a great sleep."What is this? I feel cold?"The boy asked himself looking at the white void which was surrounding him.

A white and cold desert which was spreading the fear of loneliness over him, step by step not seeing anyone, or not hearing anything. Screaming, it returned back like an echo, he was feeling so lonely still this state quickly disappeared seeing the man which he admired the most. Li Yang, but it was just an illusion as the great Chinese legend, was just standing there like http://uppix.net/8/f/b/b80b6a0dc387ef475c8b9b50ab3d4.jpg Li wasn't
near him, like Li wasn't looking for him, with full admiration about such a great person. Still this wasn't going to remain a nice and great dream, since the ability would transform it into a nightmare."Great Master Yang."Hearing Li the legend turned toward him, slapping him."A weakling like you doesn't deserves to call me master."He was punched in the mouth, a very powerful punch."I could kill you but I like to see the weaklings dying by the hands of other weaklings. You don't need to show me your pathetic abilities. They are an insult to my talent, and mastery of water."And with that the dream ended, the boy would have worked but the ability was restraining him, so he was going to probably suffer more because of those nightmares.

One of the nurses left, going to Miss Brumfield to tell her about what happened. What happened, wasn't a usual thing, and it did not have any connection with a sickness, it was something related to magic. Hwang was thinking after the nurse left, that maybe she realized what happened with him and they would be screwed in any second from now. After a few minutes the nurse came to Miss Brumfield which was still in the arena telling her"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"She told her, then left the arena back to the nurse's office.The oyal dragon was still there,deciding that he will remain with Li until he will wake up.No matter,the mission or the punishment he could suffer,he was determined to remain with Li.

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?”

After a few moments, Opal had nodded yes and ran off to Central Park, thinking Aberdeen would follow her. People she knew would be there and it wouldn't be nearly as scary. So she had reached the park after only a few minutes. Ella had come back to her and was currently pawing at her dress. She reached down and pulled her up into her hands and hugged her tightly, causing her to squirm and then calm down. Mr.Brumfield was asking for ideas when Ella got free and whispered in her ear. "You could possibly immobilize it- even for a few seconds"

Opal got a scared look on her face and shook her head, but she decided it best to say something anyway. "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 the teacher 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" Ella nodded lightly and crawled back down to her book bag to get more Caramels to calm herself down- this was not happening. Ella was afraid that Opal would actually try to get closer to the thing and possibility get herself killed.

Opal, on the other hand, was getting more and more exited for this- she could help save people! That would be fun, right? She smiled lightly and looked towards where the creature was. The thing was huge. That was a little unnerving because the biggest thing she had ever attempted was a car, when her ball got stuck underneath it. It was a good sized car, but nothing like that... thing.

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.

Kieran smiled to himself as Melody talked to Kirie. "Ass hat" she mumbled as he walked away. Kieran audibly laughed at that, which drew Melody's attention.

“Subtle.” She said sarcastically as he walked off the wall. “Could you be less creepy? I'm already watched enough as it is.”

Kieran smiled again and gave her a quick hug. "What can I say, I'm a fan of the classics. And I wasn't spying on you, I just didn't want Kirie to know I was here, as you're fully aware I had to sneak away from Brumfield." Kieran smiled again as the two walked out of the door. "I think I saw Connor heading towards Central Park, I don't know what's going on but I can tell it's something big. We should head over there and check it out." Kieran said. Before Melody could react he grabbed her and and started jogging towards the popular location. He wished he could travel by shadow, it would be sooo much faster but he had Melody with him and he wasn't very good at taking other people with him. Oh and he didn't really have anywhere he could turn without causing alarm. The streets were noisy and crowded with people running the other direction so the two didn't really have an opportunity to talk as they made their way to the park.

When they arrived they saw Mrs. Brumfield talking to other students probably trying to formulate a plan. Then out of the corner of his eye Kieran saw Connor standing off by himself, with a look on his face that Kieran almost never saw. "CONNOR WHAT ARE YOU THINKING!!" Kieran shouted, letting go of Melody's hand and running towards his brother, Nox materialized off the ground and ran along side Kieran. Despite all their bickering Nox loved Kieran, Hans Connor and their whole family and knew that this was serious.

There were tanks, and plans and other national guard equipment attacking the creature, but there was no way they could stop it and Kieran knew Connor thought the same thing and there was no way that Kieran was gonna let Connor fight alone. Kieran and Connor had spent less time together the last week or so, Kieran has spent a lot of time with Melody but he and his brother have always been a team and they always will be. Kieran arrived at Connor's side before he did anything stupid. "Dude, you ain't gonna fight that thing alone are you? Cause you know we're a team, we have been ever since that time I put superglue on the toilet and mom was stuck there for two hours. Neither of us confessed and we both got punished instead. We're doing this together, you, me, Nox and Hans. I won't have it any other way." Kieran said a serious stoic expression on his face, something almost no one has ever seen before.

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.

Connor had, as per the usual, become promptly lost upon entering the city. He didn't know how but he managed to separate from his group and ended up wandering around. He and Hans visited a sweet shop and picked up a huge bag of candy. There was an assorted mix of both Kieran's and Connor's favorites. He'd bought it to share. Connor and Hans stopped at a music store next. The listened to a few songs, but they didn't find the Mozart they were looking for, so they left. All in all it had been a rather pleasant day. That was, of course, until the militant alert sounded and all hell broke loose. Some massive creature was ripping apart military craft and weaponry like it did it for a living. It would have been a lot more impressive had it not been the scariest thing Connor had seen since his father had taken them to one of his independent films about food processing. The boys' father hadn't participated in the film at all, of course, he was just a cinema-phile. Regardless, the film had scared little Kieran, Connor, Hans, and Nox to such an extent that they hadn't spoken of it since. Connor shuddered at the thought.

Connor observed the monster very carefully. It was certainly not anything natural, meaning magic was a valid explanation. He'd heard of creatures made out of magic, but such practices were old and archaic. It never happened in the modern world. Still, there was something unnerving about it, it was the blackness. That's what it was. That thing was the same color as Kieran when he shifted to... shadow form. "That's it!" Connor exclaimed, and at that, he set his jaw and rolled up his sleeves. Connor had gotten, "serious". Just as Connor was about to step forward and enact the Supremely Excellent, Not Predictable, Awesome Initiation plan (or S.E.N.P.A.I. for short) he heard Kieran's voice, and boy was he mad. "CONNOR WHAT ARE YOU THINKING!!" Kieran shouted, running towards his brother. Nox materialized off the ground and ran alongside Kieran as he closed the distance between them. Connor smirked and made a silly face. "You got me! Here's your prize!" Connor said, pushing the bag of candy into his brother's hands. "Be careful with that, it's got our favorites in it." Connor deflected, trying to weasel his way out of his brother's vise-like grip on his wrist.

The pair of brothers, who were nearly inseparable from birth were thinking the exact same thing. There were tanks, and planes, and other national guard equipment attacking the creature, but there was no way they could stop it. Further, there was no way Kieran was gonna let Connor fight alone. Kieran and Connor had spent less time together the last week or so, as Kieran had spent a lot of time with Melody, but he and his brother have always been a team and they always will be. Kieran arrived at Connor's side before he did anything stupid. "Dude, you ain't gonna fight that thing alone are you? Cause you know we're a team, we have been ever since that time I put superglue on the toilet and mom was stuck there for two hours. Neither of us confessed and we both got punished instead. We're doing this together, you, me, Nox and Hans. I won't have it any other way." Kieran said a serious stoic expression on his face, something almost no one has ever seen before.

Normally, Connor would have made a silly face and they would have compromised about it. Not this time. Connor matched his brother's stoic gaze with an equally stern look in his eyes. "Not this time little brother," though Kieran was his elder by almost over a year. "This time, I want you to watch me. You spent a lot of time with Mel this week, and that's been really good for you. I can see the brother of mine who you used to be. The one before the pranks and the bullies. The real you. Don't get me wrong," Connor chuckled. "We've been getting into trouble since we perfected the fake, 'I'm sorry puppy dog eyes', when we were three. Still, she's so good for you. Don't screw that up just for me. I'm your brother. I'll love you no matter what. Now do as I say and go tell Jaxon that I'm going to test that sucker out. I can give you guys some good intel if I go in first and soften it up for ya." Connor smirked. "Besides, part of me just wants to show off a little for his younger brother. After all, I was either with Ms. Brumfield or in the library all week. Lemme show you how it's done." Connor said with a wink. At that, Hans jumped down from his perch on Connor's shoulder. "Ready Hans? Begin Alpha formation." Connor said, stepping forward in time with Hans toward the giant monstrosity before them. Connor's body glowed with light, evidence of the strong magic bubbling up from deep inside. "Activating Familiar Empowerment." Connor said, clapping his hands together and feeding his strength into Hans, whose body began to rapidly change. Hans's body grew at an exponential rate. He didn't stop until he was as big as a tiger, and had long teeth, wicked claws, and dark brown stripes to match. "Take me to the horizon Hans." Connor said, mounting his not so little fox-demon. At that, Hans jumped, carrying Connor into battle. Just before it was unsafe, Connor turned around and winked at Kieran once more. He then turned back towards the eight foot tall monster before him and started working on a battle plan.

As far as combat capabilities went, the thing had a sword and was using it with deadly effectiveness. It was decently large and looked both strong and fast. The best strategy would be to either get too close for comfort, which Connor didn't like, and use even faster speed to keep the edge, or to stay back and hammer it with long range techniques. Though neither were his strong suit, Connor prefered to slug it out with his opponents. Cracking his knuckles, Connor began to chant. Unfortunately, the thing noticed them. It whipped around towards them, reaching out with its deadly blade, but Hans was two steps ahead of him and had dodged on his own, allowing Connor to keep focusing on his spell. Hans, though large, was nearly more difficult to catch than smoke. His body was full of Connor's power and it had strengthened and enhanced an already toned and battle hardened body. On his back, Connor sat in almost perfect stillness, leaving his safety to his partner. Connor was focusing on a long range water spell. He was attempting to pull the water from the nearby sewer grates and use it to unbalance the creature before moving in close while it was distracted. Once Connor had finished his seal, he signalled for Hans to take them in. Serpentining with unnatural grace, Hans weaved in and out of the monster's strike, getting ever closer until Connor was ready. With a shout, Connor jumped off his familiar's back, diving forward and placing his hand upon the ground at the creature's feet. With the sound of a cannon, Connor released all the water that was currently in the main, some several hundred gallons came bursting up through the ground, destroying the pavement and knocking the thing off balance. Not wanting to give it a chance to regroup, Connor steeled himself for what he was about to do. It would work in theory, but in practice Connor was still iffy. Not to mention he could feel the stares of his fellow Magni on his back. No time to hesitate, if he did, he could die. Once Hans was safely away, Connor clapped his hands once more, taking the power from his familiar and diverting it to himself. He smiled when he felt Hans jump into Kieran's arms. It felt safe and warm there.

At Connor's command, the power sealed within the water demanded it to take the shape of a giant serpentine dragon, which coiled around Connor like a snake, obscuring him completely. However, Connor wasn't drowning under the hundreds of gallons of water. He wasn't even suffocating. Connor was changing. His body elongated and thickened. His legs fused together and his arms flattened into fins. The water swirled around Connor, bringing him upwards towards the top of the pillar as his body took the shape of a fully grown, male Orca. Once he'd brought himself up so far, and changed his mass so much, there weren't many options for Connor to go. There was down... or down. Connor pointed his nose and smashed face first into the midsection of the creature, the water dispersing along the ground as it left Connor's control. Without pausing, and before he hit the ground, Connor shifted once again, this time into the shape of a tiny little bat. He wound his way around the creature's blind strikes using his practiced echolocation and made his way up to it's shoulders. Once there, Connor shifted once more into an Alpha male silverback gorilla, and grappled it from behind, causing it to lurch forward, Connor jumped off as it smashed into a building, shifting back into a human as he landed. He was breathing heavily, all that magic all at once was crazy tiring. He knew that he was slowing down, but he took a ready stance, waiting for the thing to emerge and to challenge it once more. However, it had grown tired of Connor. He wasn't an easy target, and the creature looked tired as well, like it needed energy. It became very clear to Connor in that moment. What it wanted, was magic. While Connor was standing still, having figured out the secret, it had used its time to choose a new target, one that looked easier. Melody.

It left Connor and rushed to attack Melody. Connor didn't know what it actually intended to do, but when he saw it blast off towards Mel, sword in hand, he did the only thing he could think of. Connor shifted once more into a cheetah, racing with the thing, but it was too fast, Connor wasn't going to make it. He needed more speed. Without thinking, without warning, Connor shifted once again, this time, taking the shape of a hawk, furiously beating his wings to overtake the giant creature. He didn't care that he'd managed trans-mammalian shifting, he needed to stop that thing from reaching Mel. Connor rocketed forward, wings outstretched. He wasn't going to make it.

Time slowed, and Connor blacked out for a moment. He remembered reaching with his arms, they were human arms, he must have shifted back. He touched something. It might have been Mel, it might have been that creature, but he didn't remember. When he woke, Mel was on the ground in front of him. She was safe, and nothing was wrong with her. She wasn't hurt. Well that was good, Connor sighed with relief, but why... Why did she have that look of sheer horror on her face. Connor's chest felt weird. He looked down. A black blade had pierced him. It had ran him through from back to front. As of this moment, it was currently lodged in his sternum. Connor had shoved Mel out of the way, and taken the blow for her. Connor smirked. Coughing up blood, he tried to make a joke, but all that came out was, "Where'd this come from, eh?" Connor's eyes rolled back in his head as the thing pulled it's blade from his body and he crumpled. Kieran caught him, bringing him gently to the ground and cradling Connor in his arms. "Did you see?" Connor asked. "I did it! I turned into a hawk..." Connor said. He couldn't hear what anyone was saying, only that something was distracting the monster from him and Mel. He looked over to where she was, a smile on his face. "You're safe. I'm glad. It used to be that I was the one who protected Kieran, made him smile. That's gotta be your job now." Connor coughed, blood trickling down the corner of his mouth. He chuckled. "How much trouble you think Mom'll put me in for this?" Connor asked, but his eyes weren't looking anywhere in particular, and he still couldn't hear what was happening around him. If words were being said, Connor didn't hear them. If first aid was happening, Connor didn't notice. He was distracted by a bird, soaring high in the sky. Connor reached up and made to grab it, resting his palm on his heart once he'd finished. "Kieran." Connor said, completely serious. "Don't eat all that candy at once. You'll get fat. Look after Hans and our sister for me. I'll see you on the flip side, but not till you're way older, ok? It's time to leave now." Connor said, feeling weak. He was so cold. "But before I go, I need you to promise me something. Be yourself. Don't live your life for me. Do it for you." Connor said, a smile on his face. With that, his eyes closed and he breathed his last; that goofy smile was still on his face.

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. 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 to 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.”

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." 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."

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.

As Kieran wept for his brother Kirie, and stood pseudo imposingly over Kieran. His voice rang contempt as he spoke, "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” Kirie's words were accompanied by a smirk. Kieran did not notice the monster is as it grew in size and continued attacking the military, it's mocking and taunting fell on deaf ears to Kieran, he did however hear Kirie's words, and they upset him greatly. "Master Kieran, don't do it, you're better than that, not much but still." Hans communicated to Kieran telepathically, Nox looked over at Hans glaringly, "Hans you have known Kiearn almost as long as I have, and we both know he is not hearing a word either of us is saying right now. His mind is made up, let him act and learn from his actions." Nox said back to Hans, showing surprising wisdom and insight. Kieran looked up at Kirie, only his head moving, maintaining the position on his hands and knees, with tears still in his eyes. "Who the fuck do you think you are? You know nothing of who I am, or what I'm going through." Kieran said his voice calm and unwavering despite his emotional state. There wasn't even a hint of his usual smile anywhere on his face. Kirie offered Kieran his hand to help him up and Kieran's anger began flowing again, "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, the anger seeping its way into his voice as his hands sparked slightly. "So why don't you take your useless faux inspiring words and shove them up your ass." Kieran said nearly screaming now. He took a deep breath and in an explosively quick motion he stood and swung his right fist colliding with Kirie's face, his fist sparked with shadow electricity as it made contact with Kirie on the underside of his chin. The punch would have been incredibly painful, but would not have caused anything other than superficial damage. Kieran was angry, and a little out of control, but he is by no means stupid.

Kieran looked at the ground, and bent down, grabbing the picture of his sister and brother. After this he spit on the ground and turned away from Kirie, he didn't care about what Kirie had to say, he didn't care what anyone had to say, he lost everything today. Why would that idiot do that? How am I gonna protect Taryn, or Melody when I couldn't protect Connor? How am I gonna move on without that son of a bitch, he was my partner in crime, and he kept me under control, what will I do without him? Kieran thought as he walked, his back to the Kirie, the chaos, ... ... ... and Melody. Kieran started to cry again but as his back was to everyone, no one but the most observant would see it. Nox, with Hans on his back, looked to Melody, he didn't speak, as the look in his eyes said everything, "He doesn't want help, but he needs it. And this is one situation I can't help him through." That was the message conveyed by his eyes, it was a wordless message that passed empathically through Nox's strong emotions. After his look to Melody, Nox followed his partner in the other direction, knowing that at least for now, their fight as over. Mrs. Brumfeld called to Kieran, Melody and Jayson to protect Opal and Jaxon as they fought the beast, but Kieran kept walking. His teacher's words flew right over Kieran's head failing to be noticed by the kid, too much was going through his head right now, he needed to be alone, he was never any use in a fight anyway. He just wanted to go back to the days when he and Connor would hangout, laugh, and play jokes on people, but he can't do that anymore, Connor's gone and he watched it happen.

#, as written by Byte
It was kind of frightening to see Kieran exert such a massive surge of power. While in awe of the spectacle, Melody felt somewhat of a fear for this power. Her body couldn't move an inch, not until the storm had passed and her friend returned to normal, standing a mere three feet away from her and dropping on his knees.

“Poor guy...” Whispered the little siren, a hand gently slapping her magni's face. “Melly should go help him...”

Melody could only imagine what Kieran felt like right now. She'd say she knew the feeling of losing someone important to you, but a brother was far different than a father. Wasn't it? Grief was done differently by everyone. Some would take more out of their life, others would become shut-ins, and some just... Had their own weird little way of giving death a place in their heart.

Pushing her body from the muddy ground, Melody sighed, deeply, unsure of what was the best route to take. In all, the girl kinda sucked at things like this, partly because dealing with her father's death, she did it all by herself. There was her mother, of course, but most of the time it was her and... Well, her thoughts, music, etc.

“Who the fuck do you think you are? You know nothing of who I am, or what I'm going through”

Melody stopped, noting that Bleach was just decked in the face by Kieran. Kirie had taken a not so subtle way of raising Kieran's spirit, rather, horribly.

Deserved it. The blonde girl thought, her expression sinking into a saddening look. Sighing, Melody caught the glare of her friend's demon, Nox. Why was he looking at her? It wasn't like she'd be able to do anything about it. Want to, yes, but undoubtedly the girl would fuck up somehow.

“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.”

Miss Brumfield was giving out orders. So... they were going to fight that monstrosity? “No, I don't understand.” Melody replied, letting out an unamused groan before kicking some imaginary dirt and jogging after Kieran.

“Kieran.” Melody called out, a hand grabbing his arm to turn the boy around so he'd face her. “I...” She wanted to say something that'd make him feel better. Something that could lighten his mood, but there wasn't a single sentence, generic or otherwise that the girl thought was strong enough to do just that.

She sighed. I suck at this. Silence ensued, and Melody embraced her friend in a hug. “I'd say something, but nothing will make you feel better.” She began, whispering softly. “I'm sorry. For Connor.” Melody sighed, eyes tearing up at the mere reminder of that one, singular image. “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.”

While Melody wouldn't say it out loud, she felt responsibility for Connor's death. In a way. She didn't care if she was being selfish, but Connor didn't have to save her. Still, he had, but why?

“Look,” Melody looked to Kieran, eyes locking with his. “I'm not going to tell you to do anything.” She said, releasing the boy from her hug. “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, averting her eyes from Kieran. “And, if you want: You can ask me for help, too.”

Melody coughed in her hand, turning her back to Kieran to hide another set of flushed cheeks. “Geez! Say you'll help me kick that thing's ass already, I'm running out of movie quotes.” The girl huffed, her hands resting on her side as she hoped Kieran would make the right choice.

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?”

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.

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!

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
-Cassandra Banks
-Opal King
- Kieran Flanagan
Team B (May make a name of their own if they choose to do so)
-Jaxon Rhys
-Jayson Goldsworthy
-Mallory Banks
-Amaya Sokeitsu
-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!”

Kirie and Amaya

2 days ago

Ms. Brumfield had just started the class but Kirie wasn’t paying much attention due to the fact he had been hearing rumors of a new students but one in particular. The girl with fire based abilities and her red hair, one girl kept coming to mind and that was his childhood friend Amaya. Dammit please don’t let it be her, please not her- all the while Ms. Brumfield had introduced the last new student of their class. “Please take care of me!” her sweet voice filled the room and Kirie paled.

shit I know that voice. and he looked up at the front of the room but instead came face to face with Amaya Sokeitsu his childhood friend as well as enemy. She smiled at him but at the same time it felt as if she was glaring daggers at him. She walked along the aisle and of all things tripped over nothing. Amaya simply bounced back up as if nothing happened and sat behind Kirie.

Ever since then he knew her demon had it out for him, everywhere he went the damn little devil was there to make sure his life was hell constantly burning his things. Diesel had gone so far as burning his notebook with all the notes he had written since the first day of class. As for Amaya she was getting along quite nicely with the others but of course her cheerful attitude may have gotten under a few peoples skin not that she cared much. She had made a name for herself as being the clumsy fire girl as she was always tripping over air and the like.

Diesel would often tease her about it but wouldn’t let anyone else do the same. He too had been busy but not because of Kirie but with the usual. And by usual he had already gotten caught peeking at the girls much to his delight and the horror of the girls there. He later found out Amaya had been one of the girls there and he got a black eye for it.

Present

Now the two were to face against each other in Capture the Flag though Kirie already guessed what the outcome would probably be, at least the individual fights that would break out between both teams especially if he and Amaya were to go against one another. Kirie had all the necessities he needed which included his wire and carabiner which will be of great use to him. Ruffling his already messy hair Kirie grimaced and found a small paper clip had gotten stuck to his hair. “Dammit how long has that been there Reimei?” I’m sorry for not telling you Kirie her voice shook with fear and she flickered in and out of her realm. “don’t worry Reimie it’s alright I just wish I had more control of this ability.” he gave her an apologetic smile and continued on his way to the arena.

Amaya unlike Kirie didn’t bring much with her besides the clothes on her back and the whip she always had by her side and of course Diesel came along as well. Unlike most demons he didn’t bother staying in his realm since Amon disliked the idea of his little brother pestering him with questions. “Hey Diesel you don’t think I’ll accidentally burn someone do you? “well even if you did it’s not gonna be like you meant to hurt them. Besides the lady said you could use your abilities so why not use them.” “Yeah I guess your right well let’s hope we win this, that way I can tell Kirie I finally beat him at something. Wait doesn’t that mean we could go up against one another. Would I be able to stop him from taking the flag?” worry written all over her face.

Diesel frowned, a claw tapped his chin in thought and then his tail flicked behind him. “oh then you should just burn him to ashes that way he can’t take your flag. “Diesel but that would mean I would have to kill him! I don’t want him dead I just want him to know I’m not that weak little girl from before.” “oh well why didn’t you say so” sticking his tongue at her. The two finally reached the arena at the same time as Kirie though his demon wasn’t present.

The two stopped and stared at one another for a moment before they turned and went on their way to meet up with their teams.

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.

Mandatory Recap

Victory or no victory, at the end of all the shit that had hit the fan, all the students of the Magni class were left with somewhat of a defeat. At least those who knew how to have feelings, anyway.

The trip back to, and through, the academy's portal – that had finally decided to stop being a prick and re-open itself was, fortunately, uneventful. Upon arrival at the academy, Melody had walked, if not carried, Kieran back to his dorm, and dropped him off with a few words of comfort. Of course, in the girl's own socially weird way.

The couple of days after that hadn't been super eventful either, everything pretty much returned to normal – With the addition of three more students that were added to the class, and the fact that the academy was stupid enough to keep that... that 'thing', they said was actually a boy named Seagull or whatever, within school walls.

Like always, Melody didn't bother with any news, or any class for that matter. Whenever she could, she neglected Miss Brumfield's lessons in favour of enjoying the outside and spend time with Lorelei, or, obviously, Kieran...

Present Day – Oh God, more faffing about!

With a large gaping mouth that allowed passage for the world's most longest yawn, Melody rose from her bed.

She had overslept again, hadn't she?

Fuck.

Not that it mattered much. It wasn't like she was going to miss anything good, like, necessary training...!

Nooo! Instead, Miss Brumfield had arranged a crap game to play.

“You are not allowed to skip this, Melody! Everyone must attend, so must you.” The girl said in a horrible attempt to copy her teacher.

She sighed, sleep-filled eyes darting to the bright light that came from her laptop. “Oh, right.” A hand gently closed the device. “I was writing a letter.”

Melody had decided to write a letter to her mother, something she hadn't done for a week. But with all that had happened, she figured it was a good thing to give her an update on classes, the fact that she had made some 'friends'. And yes, Kieran was mentioned too. The girl couldn't say that, from day one, the guy wasn't mentioned in every one of her letters – Because he was.

Shaking her head, Melody went through the usual routine of showering, dressing and being horribly late.

“C'mon, Lore. Don't want Kieran to think I'm bailing out or anything.” The girl beckoned for her demon to follow as they made their way to the arena, where they'd be forced to play that stupid C.T.F. game.

But that wasn't why Melody went, she'd love nothing more than to skip it despite Miss Brumfields demands that she attended.

No, she went because of a simple promise. She went because Kieran asked her to be there with him when he went to sort out Connor's room after the game was done – And while she could've said that she'd meet him there, Melody, against her initial intent of skipping, figured it be a reassurance for her friend if she did attend class today. Just to let him know she hadn't forgotten his request.

“Yeah, I'm late. Whatever.” She announced, casually walking in as if nothing had happened and joining up with the team she was assigned to.

Li waked up, a new day of humiliation for him. Three days ago he fainted and later when he wake up he had his powers sealed, his dragon had his powers restricted so Hwang can't use his power like before, it was just like all those years of mastering his abilities were now useless since the abilities lost half of their power. It was indeed a bad thing for him, Li thought that maybe the headmaster will protect him, will not let him be killed and to be left without his powers.
But this could be just what he was thinking, and nothing more as the boy was shocked when he waked up and saw that his powers were sealed.After that day when the monster attacked the human city he stayed almost 20 hours in his room, he slowly but surely fell into a depression. Hwang knew that this was just a temporary depression, but still this gave the enemy the perfect chance to take him easily, as Li won't oppose any resistance to them.

It was just like Li didn't wanted to live anymore. He is always sad and quiet because of what happened, but he hasn't become a madman still a depression isn't good. Hwang tried anything to revert Li to his normal state, but he realized that for this to happen Li would have to regain his element and something else to happen, Hwang thought about that something. He came to the conclusion that maybe that something was a meeting that should happen for Li to become how he was.
So Li was staying in his bed as usual, more than he needed to, Hwang was sure that this was the worst type of depression he ever saw during his 800 years.Hwang almost cried every day,and even now but he abstained, to not cry because only crying and doing nothing wouldn't help his partner, he was thinking when Li will come back to his original state, when I will get rid of this depression that was the question that haunted him for several days.

Hwang now was supposed to go with Li to the arena but because of this depression he was now supposed to go alone."Li I will go."He told to his partner then leaves the room. Li thought at himself as a person who was once a spy and now was just a failure, Li was believing that he was now good of nothing. Hwang stepped out of the room going to the arena, surely Miss Brumfield will ask him why Li isn't too, and then he would have to tell her what really happened with Li, as the dragon managed to hide Li's depression until now.Hwang finally reached the arena in a few minutes thinking at Li and what he is doing, after coming in the arena he saw Li coming, he was surprised to see Li.It was the first time, after a few days when he stepped out of his room for more than 4 hours the other 20 hours being his his room.

"Li this competition will surely be a great one."He said to Li, the boy only saying"Yeah."Hwang was sure that Miss Brumfield would find out about Li's depression. He looked at everyone,Hwang seeing 3 new persons, one of them being the Magni and the demon that he heard about, the ones who were responsible for attacking the human city. Not wanting to hide Li's depression he shouted toward Miss Brumfield, as Li took a seat and Hwang was staying on the boy's shoulder"Miss Brumfield we have something to speak."The dragon told her, wanting that she to come near them. Hwang didn't want that everyone to find about Li's depression.

Ms. Brumfield


It looked like things were getting underway and she was well aware of some of the students thoughts on this game. But she did it in hopes they would form better relations with one another and relieve their minds of their current burdens. The person who concerned her the most was Kieran who carried the largest out of all her students and had made sure to treat him well but not too much so it didn’t irritate him like it had her when she got like that. A few of the students were late but nothing wrong with that Aberdeen and Li have been absent a lot but more so Aberdeen who she hasn’t seen since coming back 3 days ago.

Then her name was called by someone, looking towards the direction of the call she saw Li and his demon Hwang. a frown appeared on her face thinking of what it was they had done especially when it came to destroying her room. The thing from the basement was still out and about, the headmaster had put a stricter ruling on curfew as they already had one case of a student being attacked. Shaking her head she walked over to the pair and sat down next to them making sure to lose her frown but she wasn’t about to smile.

"You called Hwang? what is it you would like to speak about?" her voice was somewhat kind but taking a closer look Ms. Brumfield noticed Li looked upset and he had been for the past few days. "Is Li alright Hwang?" was her next question.

A few seconds after he shouted, Hwang saw that Miss Brumfield was coming toward them."Very quick"He said in his mind, the dragon being ready to tell everything to the teacher. It was her duty to know that, as Li's teacher, and now he was thinking that this wasn't a good thing, to hide Li's depression from her."Yes, first I want to apologize for what we did, since Li is in this state he can't apologize too, so I will apologize for him too."He took a deep breath thinking how he should put it more exactly, as this wasn't an easy subject, and didn't know what kind of reaction she would have."Since his powers were sealed, he fell into a depression. I tried everything to bring him back to his original state, but nothing worked. This depression, it's like Li is thinking, that he is the greatest failure and he doesn't care about his life anymore. In this state, when Jing will come he will be like a man who is waiting for his death to take him. I came to the conclusion, that only two things can make Li escape this depression.
1. When he will regain his powers back and second a meeting with a person or persons, but I don't have any idea about this person."Hwang told to Miss Brumfield after that shed a tear, he really cared about Li and worried that his life was threatened, and he could be attacked anytime."Li isn't alright, in fact, I lived 800 years and I never saw a depression like this. This is the worst type of depression I've ever seen. If Li Yang was here, in one week he would have brought him back to normal, but I am not like Li Yang.I've lived so much, but I can't help my partner. Please, can you do something?"He asked Miss Brumfield to look at the persons in the arena. All of them were powerful and special, because he lived so much, just by looking at someone Hwang knew if that person was powerful or not.

But looking at Li, he saw a man lost in an abyss of regrets, which were the cause of his depression.He looked at a girl, a new student, which seemed very special and powerful too, it was Amaya, he was thinking that maybe she could help him .
Thinking a few seconds at a possibility, that maybe one of the students could partially help Li, to come back to his original state."I would really want that the probation period to end, so that Li can come back to normal, but as much as I would like to ask this, the headmaster would not agree. So maybe one of the students, could help Li?"He asked Miss Brumfield waits for an answer looking at her, it was a good decision to speak with her after all, the dragon knew he couldn't handle this by himself."Li forgive me for being unable to help you."The dragon told, Li replies something back in Chinese."He told me, Eternal Failure. Li thinks that he is an eternal failure. In this kind of moments I feel so worthless.After all, even if I lived so much and gained more experience than other persons, there are still situations like this that I can't resolve myself. That is why I am asking you to help Li.I can't support seeing him like this, I don't want that this depressing turn into a permanent one."After Hwang told what he had to tell the dragon was patiently waiting for an answer.The dragon was hoping that she will help them,as he couldn't just go to the headmaster and ask him to seal off Li's powers.

“Welcome, I see you've decided to wake up.”

Melody shrugged, another yawn escaping the gaping hole of a mouth. “I kinda blame you for that.” She gave her friend a smirk look.

“I totally wanted to keep sleeping,” The blonde began. “But my brain was like: Nope! Wouldn't want you to oversleep and risk disappointing your friend!” She said in the most dramatic tone she could muster, though it came across more as a pathetic attempt at sarcasm.

Great. Minus infinite points for fucking up a proper greeting, Mel. Just great.

The girl scolded herself, her mouth emitting a resounding “Eh...”

Melody could only hope that Kieran would get the general point that she was trying to get across. If not, then... Well, another fuck up on the already growing heap of social awkwardness wasn't that much of an apocalyptic disaster.

“Hey, did w- Actually, fuck it. Too tired to think.” Melody shrugged, deciding in the last second to not bother asking anyone about the general plan of this stupid game. If anything, she didn't even have to bother trying, since the other two... or three, pretty much had that covered.

Yeah, because I'll totally listen to any crap plan you guys got figured out in your pretty little heads, right?

Yep, mundane days like these still hadn't changed. Everything and everyone was better off interacting with a wall as opposed to Melody. Like Hell she was actually going to play this game seriously. “Here's an idea, we'll just play this game, win or lost – I don't really care, and let me get back to sleep or something.”

Melody muttered, though anyone listening well-enough would probably catch onto a few insignificant words that came out of the teens mouth.

Not long after some banter, chatter, and... total silence the capture the flag game had gotten the signal to begin and every player in the arena made themselves ready for a fun and jolly good time. All six of them...?

Mandatory skip, because of legitimate reasons. (And because I have bugger all idea what this apparent 'escape plan' is.)

After Melody and Kieran managed to slip away from that not-so-amazing game that happened to be mandatory, no doubt giving themselves another X on Miss Brumfield's nice-list, the two arrived at Connor's room, well what was his room and still had his stuff in. which was weird, but they weren't here to question school regulations.

“Okay, so what now?” The girl asked, mentally scolding herself again. This tiem for asking the obvious. Great conversation starter, Mel, you're on a roll. Not!

The moment Hwang started to speak she got a bit annoyed. Leaning forwards playfully she wagged her finger at them. "Now Hwang no need to apologize, you two have apologized enough." She continued to listen to his story or rather Li's since he was still sitting there all depressed looking.

"Hwang isn’t that how all depressions are. Li is fine he just needs to get over it. And your right he needs to be cheered up so he can feel "special" again. Unfortunately I have don't know when he will get his abilities back but for now just have him relax and act like any ol teenager. That should be good for him." smiling kindly at the two she reached forwards and patted Hwangs head to think a demon would be this upset over his Magni, the two must have a really strong relationship. I'm a bit jealous since mine is more like an S&M kinda thing. frowning a bit with a slight blush on her cheeks at having thought of such a thing Ms. Brumfield knew Amon heard her but was glad he didn’t act upon it.

"As for this person I think I know of a few people who can help Li but today why don't you two help me watch the game make sure everyone’s follow the rules and such? Maybe you can find the friend you need in a time like this" she grinned at the two. While she had been talking with Hwang, Kirie had gone up to her to inform her that Jaxon hadn’t showed up. “Well then I guess I’ll just have to bring him over.”

Ms. Brumfield went in search of Jaxon, found him and brought him back to the arena giving him a lecture about not coming when she told them they had to participate. Once there she left him with his team and returned to Li’s side. With a simple crack of thunder she had signaled for the game to start. From what she could see they were already on the move.

Kirie & Amaya

As soon as Ms. Brumfield gave the go ahead for the game to start Kirie ran off ahead leaving the defenses to Opal. It seemed Melody and Kieran had ditched them as they usually do but the game had already started when he realized it so it didn’t matter anymore. Cassandra ran off to who knows where hopefully she’ll try and defend the flag or at least keep people away from Opal while he went for their opponent’s flag.

He was the best suited for the task as he didn’t trust Cassandra enough to not go berserk or something and start fighting people on the other side. It didn’t take him long to infiltrate their side and he nearly got in the way of a girl with white hair. She looks frail but considering what she carried in her hands she shouldn’t be underestimated.

The one person he was truly worried about was Amaya, she knows how he thinks and vice versa. though it’s been a couple years since we last saw each other so we must have changed just a little bit. Amaya had the same thoughts and decided to keep back and let Mallory go ahead besides Amaya wasn’t much of a fighter anyway. Jaxon looked like he could drop dead any moment from being so damn tired well I guess we can’t count on him then huh. So now it’s just us girls versus Kirie that girl with the pink and Mallory’s sister.

Kirie watched Jayson and Amaya from a distance and thought of drawing Amaya away or something but she may look like an air head but sometimes she had her moments. He chuckled at the sight of Amaya tripping when she took a step forwards. Diesel appeared besides her to help the red head up. Looking closer she had tripped over a shoe-lace. Shaking his head trying to keep back his laughter Kirie didn’t realize that the scene he saw before him had disappeared.

A shadow fell over Kirie. Relying only on instincts he jumped out of the way as Amaya came barging in with a fiery kick; literally her foot was on fire. “What in the world are you trying to burn me to a crisp! Is this how you greet an old friend Little Red?” he grinned at her using a nickname he had given her. “Hey I told you to stop calling me that I’m not a kid anymore!” sticking her tongue out at him.

“Well then I wouldn’t diddle-dawdle like you are now I’m not the only one here to get your flag look” Kirie pointed to where their flag had been which was now in the hands of Cassandra. Amaya gasped and looked back and forth between the two trying to figure out whom to go for. “ Dammit Kirie! I’m gonna get you for this!” glaring at him Amaya ran off after the quickly disappearing image of Cassandra running away from the flag. Once she was out of sight Kirie burst out laughing “Wow she still fell for that old trick. When will that girl learn from her mistakes? (Kirie then turned back to the flag with a serious face) Now time to get the real flag and end this game.”

Soon enough the image Kirie had created disappeared, making Amaya stop in tracks nearly tripping again. “URHG!! I can’t believe I fell for that dammit! I’m so gonna get you for this Kirie!” sulking a bit Amaya wasn’t paying attention to where she was going and nearly crashed right into the very girl whose fake she had been chasing; Amaya had ran into Cassandra. Kirie ran up to where Jayson was and noticed Jaxon but didn’t take him to serious considering the dead tired look on his face. “Hey Jayson I think I’ll be taking your flag today think you stop me?” he smiled and ran at her however she attacked he would do his best to get out of her way that or electrocute whatever the heck she sent at him.

Knocking came to the door with Tama darting his eyes back and forth in confusion. "Uh. Jaxon I think there's someone who wants to speak to you so you should wake up soon." To this the only response out of Jaxon was nothing more than a slight moan and more snoring. "Uh. Seriously Jaxon wake up, you're already skipping class and other things so I th--." CRACK! The sound of thunder had cut him off sending Tama into a frenzy from the sudden sound and hiding under the covers. "....Uhn? Ugh what was that?" Rubbing his eyes slowly he looked around before shaking his head and yawning. "T-Tama where'd you go buddy? I heard you talking about something and then a loud boom..."

"I-I'm here I just took off at the sound of thunder there." 'Thunder? Where would there be thunder on a day like this?' Just after this thought almost on cue there was yet another sharp boom of thunder followed by a voice. "JAXON RHYS WAKE UP, YOU'RE ALREADY SKIPPING YOUR REGULAR CLASSES BUT YOU'RE NOT SKIPPING MINE!" 'Oh.... it's her... so that must mean it was her snapping that caused it.' Sighing heavily he got up and yelled to the teacher. "Yeah I'm awake just give me a bit to get showered and everything else and I'll head to the arena just go back there and I'll meet up shortly."

Upon hearing her leave he slowly got up and grabbed some stuff to get showered and ready for the arena challenge but before heading out he pulled a disposable camera and took a picture of his work. "There. That should satiate my need for keeping it preserved just in case a certain some idiot comes in and decides to clean it off the walls." Shaking his head he then headed his way to the shower to get ready for the "game" that everyone's favorite teacher set up.

After his shower and drying his hair he strung his towel over shoulders and donned his pants so that it's "acceptable" to walk around in public. Stretching his arms and yawning he walked down the corridor before hearing voices. 'Who could that be? Everyone should be still in class of course...' Shaking his head he kept walking only to see the back of a blonde and... of course Kieran. "Uh..." Putting a hand over his mouth he caught a glimpse of the cake and caught Kieran's eye. 'Ah crap... this is a situation I SHOULD NOT get involved in!' Quickly raising a finger to his lips he nodded at Kieran and gave him a thumbs up before silently shuffling back to his room to put on a shirt and head to the arena course.

"Gaaaaaaaaaah! Why were they there of all times?! Whatever, Tama now that I'm here let's just get through this since it seems that everyone already started. I should be on the team with... The girls that's right..." Just after saying this Jaxon let his magic create portals to revolve around himself and headed over to Kirie to stop him from taking the flag from both our side and to help Jayson as she seemed to be struggling. "At Least with this I'll be able to get something done, right Tama?" Smiling to himself he continued his charge on Kirie.

The Headmaster

"No, sir. I don't know." Arya answered a bit respectful at that I think I'm going to like this student "II didn't even know Demons existed until a few minutes ago, when I met Seagus's Demon, Malice. It was..." she hesitated "quite the experience."

He chuckled thinking about it "I'm sure it was. My experience with her was indeed quite the introduction" smiling.

It seemed Arya was hesitating to say more but he waited patiently for her to speak up. Or else he might come off as stern as he sometimes does.

"I mean I... didn't even know Magni existed until about six months ago. That was when I first .. ah, discovered my ability." Arya finished somewhat evasively.

One brow raised in curiosity the Headmaster looked through a few papers on his desk before choosing a select few and facing Arya again. "Ah yes I've read the reports. But paper doesn’t tell me everything if you could tell me just what exactly happened. As for your demon I find that a bit odd as they often appear when their Magni is in most need of help." He looked at her a bit quizzically.

Kirie

Kirie dodged one of the vines but as soon as he did so another came up so reaching in his back pocket he pulled out a kunai. It tore through the vine but like before more took its place. He looked over at Jayson realizing she wasn’t fit for defending the flag or herself for that matter just yet. That just makes thing easier then and with that he grabbed a few vines and leg some get a hold on him and electrocuted them to a crisp.

The vines fell apart and none took their places since Jayson was having trouble standing in place after that little feat. "Well that was no fun but I guess Ms. Brumfield wasn’t very smart on having done this so soon then, huh? (He smiled at Jayson) Now if you excuse me I have a flag to capture."

And with that he passed by Jayson and took the flag. It was a pretty darn heavy flag too despite the fact that it was so damn small. Unlike theirs which was blue theirs was red a common color for teams in his opinion. Thankfully Kirie wasn’t as weak as the others and managed to recover quite nicely over the past few days.

Kirie then took the flag at a running start and was heading over to their side when Jaxon decided to make his move and rushed at him. Surprising him Kirie barely had enough time to get out of his way but dropped the flag when doing so. The flag now lay between the two and Kirie knew he had the upperhand since Jaxon wouldnt be able to create portals with the flag in his hands. Though he could create some around Kirie and he might not even know it. So for now he sinply watched and waited for Jacon to make his move.

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.

After having Kirie steal the flag from Jayson Jaxon took the chance to rush him and just missed him with a punch but in the end made him drop the flag. "Ha, looks like you're not as powerful as you think you are Sparky." Smiling to himself he was just about to attack Kirie again when, Flash! Darkness....

'What the hell happened, I mean seriously what the hell just happened?' Blinking furiously he hid himself between dimensions only to hear Kirie being assaulted by... something, and then heard a blood curdling scream.

"Uh.... Hello? Is everyone all right?" Just after asking this almost on cue the lights flashed back on with everyone on the floor in either a daze or in pain. "Great.... Well whatever this game was going to be it seems that it is no longer going to happen." Shaking his head he scanned the room to find Amon Shielding Brumfield and the Headmaster rushing in.

"What happened here!?" Walking up to them and Amon keeping full well for his distance, Jaxon started scratching his head and sighed. "Well from what I understand the lights went dark and then this happened. Luckily I was saved from whatever event happened as I pulled myself between dimensions out of instinct, which I'm still doing right now." Biting his lip in thought Jaxon looked back at Cass and Mallory helping those hurt to the infirmary and stared at Amon in the eyes before looking back at the Headmaster. "Anyway whatever transpired here seems to have quelled itself before more things could have happened. That said we should probably get her to an emergency room of sorts before any permanent damage can occur..... That's if Amon the lovely demon will allow me to take her directly there without wasting time." Yawning slightly he stopped and looked back at the arena and all train of thought stopped. "Hey.... This might be a minute detail... but where did the flags go? I don't sense their presence... Hey Headmaster, I don't like the look of this... But... Whatever let's just get out of here. NOW."

Strange things had been happening ever since the arena incident. The lights would suddenly turn off, people would be found sleeping on the floor and nowhere near their dorm rooms or objects would be misplaced and found in the most bizarre locations. Ms. Brumfield took that entire week off so she could recuperate and try and get her thoughts back together. Among those strange things is that there have been rumors of a ghost haunting a certain hallway but only at certain times of the day as well as a rather mean one in the arena.

The Headmaster has made sure that everyone knows not to use the arena for the time being until a certain person arrived and got rid of the ghost. He held an assembly telling all the students and staff that it was most likely a student who had done all of this as a sort of joke. And most people believed him, well except the few who experienced this student’s joke and knew something just wasn’t quite right.

Sadly a fellow student won’t be with them this year. Aberdeen was asked by her parents to come home, the reason why she didn’t tell anyone other than it was a family matter nor did she tell them when she would be back. And so shortly after the arena incident Abderdeen packed up her things said goodbye and was gone.

A few days after Aberdeen had left and without any serious incidents the Headmaster released the ban on the arena but said that only teachers who had permission from the Headmaster were allowed to use it. That certain hallway however still gave people problems but after a while people got used to it.

But that didn’t matter as students were getting ready for a one week field trip outside of the school grounds. It is up to the class to decide where they want to go on this field trip. And this year Ms. Brumfields class decided to go to the beach. However the headmaster warned them to be extra careful now that word has been going around of the City incident. A lot of humans are becoming more and more aware of the magical world that Magni lived in and it could potentially put the Academy in danger.

So aside from the normal beach activities, which are up to the students, they have decided to hold a service for Connor who had died valiantly trying to protect his friends and succeeded in that. As well as a small party at the end of their one week stay at the beach. And this time the headmaster decided to be lenient with Seagus’s and Li’s punishment and has allowed the two to go along with the rest of their class on the field trip. However they still cannot use their magic and will be kept watched over nor can they go about along without a buddy.

Now we shall start off with everyone getting off the bus and finding their hotel rooms. They will be the same as how they were last time but if you would like it changed then tell me so I can change it. Also since BadBecca is away on sick leave and I’m not sure she will be able to get on the Bank sisters will room together so as not to inconvenience anyone.

Upon leaving from the bus Jaxon was happy to get off the bus and even more happy to have Tama off of it. "T-Tama why did you have to teleport to EVERY seat on the bus?" Smiling happily Tama stretched out on the ground and looked up to Jaxon to answer his question. "Well think of it this way, I like wide open places like the school's yard and other things like that. I have no interest in a metal tube on wheels, remember we have the ability to cross any distance imaginable and even have the ability to pass through walls. Why in any form would I sit still in a tube without the ability to do what I want?" To this statement Jaxon could only sigh heavily and shake his head. "Whatever Tama let's just get going to the main desk in the receptionist room and get our key card. We'll drop by Kirie to tell him we're going ahead, after that I'm headed to the shower."

With that out of the way Jaxon headed towards Kirie with Tama in tow happily trotting along behind and swiftly patted Kirie on the shoulder while passing. "Hey Sparky, Tama and I are going on ahead, if Brumfield needs anything tell her I'll be in the shower if she decides to have the class do something. Also I might have my card but don't forget to get yours." After this quick set of words Jaxon promptly headed to the reception desk.

"Why hello there sir, how may I assist you today?"

"Uh... I'm here with the Ms. Brumfield group for the school trip and I was looking for my key card, I should be roomed with a Kirie Askumoto."

"Right, here's your key card sir have a nice stay."

'Yeah... Right.' Shaking this thought from his head he walked over to the elevator to his room and got inside throwing his duffle bag onto the bed furthest from the door. "Tama I'm headed to the shower you start unpacking, that way we won't have to worry about it later ok?" Looking slightly annoyed at Jaxon, Tama nodded his head slowly. "Fine I'll do it but you better make your shower quick I don't want to sit here unpacking YOUR stuff alright?"

The bus ride…
Or
Seagus got onto the bus, and was suddenly if not ominously assailed by looks of hatred save a special few. The look from the boy named Kieran was the worst. When he sat down, he sat down next to a girl, the same one that was next to him in the infirmary. Funny how things worked out.

He waved and spoke in his mind, but not out loud. ‘Hello.’

After his attempt at a conversation, Malice snuck out of his pocket.

“Seagus! What is the meaning of this?! Keeping me in your dust filled pocket like I was forgotten candy?! The nerve you have sometimes…”

Malice was a bit hopped up on the 32 Pepsis she just drank in celebration to going to the beach.

Seagus sighed and closed his eyes while smiling sheepishly. ‘Malice, what did we talk about before coming on the bus?’

“Making a scene? How is this making a scene?! Seagus, you need to stop thinking I’m just someone you can make do whatever you want!”

‘Malice! Behave or I’ll get right off this bus and take you with me. Is that clear?!’

Malice, who was set aback by her Magni’s intense mental exclamation, whined a bit before slowly falling to his lap.

“Yes sir, sorry sir…”

‘Malice, you don’t have to be like that. It’s just that you can be such a ham sometimes.’

“Hey!!!!!!”

‘Well, it’s true. And I believe you’ve made plenty of an entrance to this bus full of people.’

Malice snuggled in the folds of Seagus’ clothes.

“I can live with that, then.”

She said this quietly, with a pleased tone in her voice. Unbeknownst to her, The girl’s demon had been watching her…

The Inn…

Seagus and Malice were taking the elevator. Seagus leaned against the wall as Malice carried the bags. She had been ogled and nearly made a guy pass out due to her racy bathing suit.

‘It’s funny, you’d think people would notice how your blacker than charcoal, but no. They just notice you’re a girl…’

“Oh, Seagus, you simply must realize. This body looks good in any color.”

‘But did you have to wear a cheese colored bathing suit?’

Malice looked down momentarily and lifted her head high, eyes closed, and chest out in pride.

“I know I’m rocking this thing!”

‘If you say so…’

DING!

Malice and Seagus exit the elevator, and then proceed towards their room. Once inside, Malice drops the bags and begins running all over the room, talking and squealing like a teenager girl meeting their fantasy star. Seagus went to his bed and simply lay down, exhausted from the walking. It was nice to have full use of his legs back, but it was so demanding. At least for now, anyway. He closed his eyes and dozed off, trying to reclaim whatever energy he could. Malice’s antics didn’t help…

Ms. Brumfield

She got off the bus a tired look on her face. It had been rather busy for her the past few weeks, what happened in the gymnasium still bothered her. The scar she had gotten reminded her of it so she wasn’t sure if getting into a bathing suit was a good idea.

Shaking her head, Ms. Brumfield gently smacked her cheeks to rid herself of any remaining dark thoughts. Now is the time to be happy and relax more With a determined smile Ms. Brumfield went to find her room and unpacked her things once she was done. Once done the teacher went off on a stroll but soon got bored. “Gah! There’s nothing much to do, I’m worried something’s going to happen at any moment. Or worse one of the kids will get themselves into trouble. I swear if they do I will give them the worst punishment of their lifetime!”

And knowing Ms. Brumfield she did give out the worst punishments to her students. Suddenly hearing a dark chuckle behind her, she wasn’t surprised by the sound of Amon laughing at her. Oh shut up. after that the chuckling died away into silence and she let out a content sigh.

Suddenly standing up straighter, Ms. Brumfield remembered she had to do a debriefing on what their plans would be to the students. Letting out another sigh, Ms. Brumfield went in search of all the students and gathered them one by one to the beachside. Once there she told them of what they were planning (you guys already know) and then she moved onto what they were doing that night.

“Well for tonight I didn’t have much planned since we got here sooner than I thought. So I guess this is your free time. Make good use of it, there’s a boardwalk just down there and do behave yourselves. And do not under any circumstances use your abilities in front of humans. What with the city and all we have been getting negative effects from those who do know of our existence. But we are here on a field trip to relax and to have fun. So please don’t ruin it for the rest of us and the same goes for your demons. They need to do their best to not appear around anybody only when you’re in your rooms may they come forth. Alright now with that done have fun and like I said don’t get into trouble your all dismissed!”

Li started walking back to his room Hwang apologizing to Mrs Brumfield while leaving after Li.He never wanted that something like this to happen,but it was prety hard even for an old dragon like him to take care of Li alone,wondering how Li didn't became a killer until now,knowing how sad he was.After all he was the only person that knew Li so well,so well that Hwang still believed that Li can regain his old self.But until now this was just a dream for Li to regain his old self Hwang knew what Li had to do,and what conditions had to be accomplished.Even so the dragon wasn't going to give up,he could never let Li in a condition like that,and if needed Hwang could give his life for Li.

During the week after the arena match,strange things happened as Hwang assisted to some of them only because he had to take care of Li.Li changed his whole program,started talking even lesser his state becoming worse,with every passing day.In every night during that week Li would wake up suddenly,leave the camera and walk like a madman who was been guided toward something precious to him.Hwang always waked up and looked for Li most of the times looking Li for two hours and coming back to their room in,most of the times, one hour.So the dragon was always sleeping during the midnight or after the midnight,still he was wondering why he always found Li at the same place where those incidents happened.What was the connection between those things and the young boy.It was something even he couldn't explain.

It seemed that the students would go on a fiel trip for one week.Something that was a good news for Hwang,thinking that maybe Li's behaviour could suddenly change from the worst,to something at least acceptable.While being near the bus Li looked at everyone with a strange face,also the persons in the bus looking at him like he was a freak.But that was only because he was a changed person since that day.After going with the bus toward the inn,the boy found himself in the inn not speaking with anyone only looking.Hwang was hidden in the boy's clothes,and could not reveal himself in a place with persons that did not knew about the Magni.After a half of hour Li managed to speak with someone and find his room.Going to their room,Hwang told to himself"Finally,i don't know what we would have done,if that person wouldn't have observed Li."Minutes later they were in the front of the door,the door of their room.Li opened and than closed it with the keys going straight to the bed.Hwang got out from his clothes telling him"Well that was a start.You didn't stared at the man,but still if that didn't happened we could have remained there for hours."

Li looked at Hwang not telling anything,Hwang being sad,since that day Hwang was always sad and barely controled himself to not cry.Some time later Hwang told to Li to go to the beachside and walk something that Li accepted,the old dragon being surprised.Walking there Hwang saw Miss Brumfield,through Li's clothes,and the others students,so he told to the boy to go in that direction where Miss Brumfield and the other students were. Hwang listened carefully because Li was in that condition,he had to do almost everything,and take care of Li every day.Sometimes the dragon felt that he couldn't continue.After Ms Brumfield told the necesarry stuff to them he asked her a little nervous,even if he had no right to do that yelling" Why the headmaster isn't doing nothing?He knows the condition in which Li is."Shortly after he apologized telling her"I am sorry,i think that all this time,when i didn't cried,i gathered a lot of anger and sadness in me.The last time i shouted to someone,was 100 years ago,and that happened because of another important even that changed back then my life just like now.Please forgive me."He said a tear falling,feeling all the pressure.

Li's safety now depended almost totaly on him,a dragon which's powers were partial sealed he was weaker than before so he could not protect Li like before,but Hwang wasn't going to give up protecting him.Li told him"Master it's not your fault,it's mine i am too weak."This wasn't the thing Hwang ever wanted to hear,Li to call himself weak.After Miss Brumfield told them what they were going to do,Li started walking back slowly to his room looking at what was sometimes starring for seconds at small things with no value.Hwang wondered how Li keep up with the others tomorrow,considering that this was the worst state of a person that he ever saw in 800 years.

Upon having his shower rudely interrupted, Jaxon threw on a quick pair of pants and kept the towel wrapped around his neck. "Feh, there's going to be no need for a shirt if we're at the beach..." Shaking his head and looking to Tama smiling, "Hey there buddy it seems that our demons can't be seen by the normal people around here so it'd seem that you'll either have to go back to your realm, stay here, or just follow me on the ground like a normal cat alright?"

"But.... If I do that I won't have any fun!" Sighing slightly and scratching his head Jaxon looked back at the small cat and picked him up. "Well it has been forever since you were back in your realm so why not go there now and find something to do?" Frowning slightly the little tomcat agreed and faded away with Jaxon stretching out his back. "Now it's time to see what Brumfield has to talk about.... I know I told Kieran to come get me if she gets us to do something but jeez.... I was showering for crying out loud. Ugh whatever I'll just see what she wants us to do and get it over with as soon as possible."

“Well for tonight I didn’t have much planned since we got here sooner than I thought. So I guess this is your free time. Make good use of it, there’s a boardwalk just down there and do behave yourselves. And do not under any circumstances use your abilities in front of humans.

Alright now with that done have fun and like I said don’t get into trouble your all dismissed!”

'So it's only in our rooms... I guess I misinformed my faithful feline companion... Did you get that Tama?' 'Loud and clear so have your fun and head back to your room, I don't feel like being alone for long.' Laughing to himself over their mental exchange he looked back at the towel strung around his neck and wrung it out. "Oh yeah I forgot... this is a thing, I should probably return it to the hotel later but for now I suppose if I get too hot I can just simply use it as a shade of some sort." Upon placing it back over his shoulders he went to the game stalls and found a few games about popping balloons and other things. "Oh wow... this should be easy. Now.... Which one should I play first?"

"STEP RIGHT UP! I SEE THAT YOU'VE BEEN EYEING MY GAME! HOW ABOUT A GO? 5 TRIES FOR 3 DOLLARS, GET ALL 5 TRIES AND GET A LARGE PRIZE!!" Blinking slightly from the surprise of the sudden outburst of a stall vender he walked over and handed the man the money and took a bunch of golf balls slowly twirling them in his palms. "So all I have to do is sink all 5 of them into the tiny little hole near back wall right?" "YESSIREE! I'LL EVEN GIVE YOU A HINT, YOU CAN USE THE FLOOR AND BACK WALL TO YOUR ADVANTAGE!" Sighing to himself he put the balls down and looked straight at the man. "Alrighty, enough with the shouting I get it that you use it to attract customers but if you keep shouting everything it'll do the opposite effect you know." Right after he finished his sentence he tossed the 5 balls onto the lip and into the hole. "Also your hints are bull, if you use physics you'll see that it'd cause too much ricochet for them to actually fall perfectly in, if you throw them slightly aiming for the ring you'll get them every time." Smiling smugly he continued, "Now what do I get?"

Ms. Brumfield

Ms. Brumfield had been having quite a delightful time that is until she saw one of the vendors arguing with Jaxon who wore a smug look on his face. Looking at the two then at the vendors stall, Ms. Brumfield walked up to the man and crossed her arms before speaking.

“Excuse me sir. But please refrain from yelling at my students, where here on a field trip and I would hate to write a bad report to the people who are allowing you to have this stall up.” Smiling at him, she turned to Jaxon and pulled him aside.

“Now as for you, this is a vacation for everyone. So please try not to get under these peoples skin no matter how stupid they are.” Smiling once again, Ms. Brumfield patted Jaxon on the cheek allowing a slight static shock to pass between the two as a little warning of sorts.

The vendor on the other hand was incredibly annoyed by the kid who came up to him spewing all this crap. Glaring at Jaxon he took one of the biggest prizes he had and shoved it into his arms. “Here’s your prize sir, hope you have a good time.” Looking away the vender walked back to stand behind the counter and continued yelling in hopes to grabs people’s attention. Except this time it wasn’t as loud and he managed not to look like an idiot.

Mallory was sunbathing when she saw a man, Seagus, Arya, and Jayson, along with their demons, walking into some portal. She was about to disregard it until she remembered her father’s order: Don’t let Seagus out of your sight. Mallory jolted up onto her feet and bolted for the portal and made it just before it closed. Once in the portal, she drew Maelstrom and made it full size.

“I don’t know who the hell you are or why you’re here, but if you don’t leave, you’ll be sorry.”

Cassa was walking down the boardwalk in a bikini top and shorts. She was self-conscious of her body, quite shy and easily embarrassed. Especially when people were whistling at her. She should have worn a shirt. There were these two guys she noticed following her. About her age, one was bigger than the other. And they were giggling to themselves like schoolgirls…this couldn’t be good. Finally she turned around and put on a serious face.

“Freaks, what do you want? You’ve been following me so stop.”

“Hey, man, this is your chance. Do it.”

Cassa’s eyes grew wide with rage as one of them had just…no, she would not take that…..

There was an elderly man fishing on his rowboat near the boardwalk. It was his 68th birthday and he was enjoying it immensely. Then he heard the most unusual thing…screaming. He looked up to scold whoever was doing it, until he heard two large splashes. Two young men resurfaced, both with rearranged faces and bruises all over. The old man smiled to himself.

“Well, you two a-holes probably just scared off all the fish, but your faces are worth it.”

Cassa readjusted her bikini top. That guy had messed it up. She continued to walk and then she ran into Ms. Brumfield, who was wearing a disapproving look.

“What?”

“You know what.”

“Big deal…”

“Yes, it is. Are you okay?”

Cassa was caught off guard by that last one.

“…Ugh, yeah. A little embarrassed.”

“Well, it was funny to watch. You probably just scared the pair off a every guy who was going to approach you. You should have seen everyone’s faces. Now, keep in mind I don’t like violence, but I don’t like my students getting violated a whole lot less.”

Ms. Brumfield laughed and turned around to go ee more attractions. Cassa eventually saw Kirie.

“Hey, would you mind walking with me so people don’t…try things.”

"What did you do to make the damn vendor so mad? You weren't being a smartass as usual were you?"

"Smart ass? I wasn't being a smart ass I was just teaching the poor uneducated fool what physics were. I mean sure maybe his yelling annoyed me but I do say good sir I am not a smartass." After saying this Jaxon couldn't help but chuckle slightly before rubbing his cheek.

'Man that teacher.... Even though it was just a spark my cheek is starting to go numb..' Shaking this thought from his head he started looking back and forth to find a place to dump the teddy bear off. "Aha! Found what I was looking for, now you two stay right here I'll be right back." Taking a momentary run over to a corner he started looking back and forth and shoved the large teddy bear into a corner letting it slide through a portal into his room with Kirie. "Hey there Jax! Wow you got something this big for me?" Smiling widely Tama curled up in the center of the big bear and looked at Jaxon. "Y-Yeah I got it for you Tama I had some money so I thought I'd win you something nice for once ya know? Well I'll be back in a while just watch TV or something I'm going to I guess hang out with Kirie and and that Cassandra girl." After saying his goodbye to his demon he closed the portal and ran back to Kirie and Cass.

"So you know what I've been doing, what have you two been up to? Keeping life fun and exciting for everyone there Sparky?" Smiling at the both of them he stretched slightly and looked back at the vendor who was still glaring at him. "Hey uh.... do you mind if we find somewhere to go? I don't mind paying for food or anything since I didn't buy anything at our last trip to the city so I got money left over. Now let's hurry I think my uneducated friend might come over here demanding his prize back."

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.

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.

Kieran awoke in a rather happy mood, despite the fact that today they were holding the memorial service for Connor. He was happy because everything with Mel seemed to be going really well, although he missed his brother deeply he knew Connor would want him to be happy and keeping living his life, the day before with Mel he had decided that the whole whoa is me, my brother died thing was gonna end in order to properly honor Connor, he had to live his life to the fullest, which means pranking, having fun, loving and all that good shit. Kieran still didn't know what he wanted to say or what was gonna happen at the memorial but he figure he would just wing it, it's what Connor would've wanted anyway prepared speeches are lame, it's always better to speak from the heart.


Kieran smiled as he walked to the beach seeing that Brumfield or someone had already set up some chairs for people to sit in and a podium for others to speak at along with an easel holding a picture of Connor on it. Kieran sighed as he started folding the chairs up. "Connor wouldn't want us all sitting and talking, he would rather this be a social event." he said to himself. After the chairs were put away he thought about what to do with he podium, he couldn't get rid of it, so in the end he just left it there and sat in the sand. Eventually Melody showed up, he assumed she came here after stopping at his room and not finding him, but he couldn't be sure. "Hey hun!" he said with a smile. "Can you believe they had chairs and shit set up? Why would we want to sit and talk 'bout Connor one at a time? Don't they know Connor would rather we have a party celebrating his life?" He said with a chuckle. "I mean seriously, Connor would want this event to be awesome." Nox showed up shortly after and barked in agreement. " There you are buddy, haven't seen you since I left this morning, sleep in?" "Shut up, I'm tired after that fight the other night? Nox retorted. "Yeah I know what you mean." Kieran said rubbing his side, his ribs still hurt like crazy and he was pretty sure he broke one or two, but that was nothing Kieran couldn't handle.

"So Mel, what do you think I should say? About Connor, I mean." He asked the girl, who clearly didn't want to be awake, it was rather early, like nine am or something. "I don't want this to be a sad thing, we should be happy and have fun today, we all loved Connor and why should we be sad? The dude wouldn't want us to dwell on why he's gone, he would want us to have a great time, and maybe talk about how bad ass it was when he kicked that thing's ass." He said, trying to keep a strong face, despite the fact that preparing for his brother's memorial was making him kinda sad.

After the preparations were all made all that was left was to wait for everyone to show up. The memorial was supposed to happen around noonish, but no exact time was set for the beginning, once people started showing up they would start reminiscing and remembering the good times. Kieran sat in the sand with Mel while they waited for people to show up, the two didn't speak much but instead just sat together enjoying each other's company.

Amaya & Kirie

The reaction on Kieran’s face said it all. Bring a hand up to his face, Kirie sighed and looked way not wanting to see what would happen next. Amaya’s reaction to his lasting words before he went off for food, made Kirie feel bad but not as bad as how the red head was feeling. Stiffening the moment his tone got cold, Amaya bite her lip and did her best to look him in the eye. At the end of his story Amaya wanted to cry, she knew how terrible it was to lose a family member, so she didn’t appreciate that Kieran directed his anger towards her. Tightening her fists, Amaya looked at the ground as she too began to remember how it felt when her brother died. He had meant the world to her and because a certain someone couldn’t keep a promise, he died.

Feeling a glare coming his direction, Kirie risked the chance at looking in Amaya’s direction and the glare sent a chill down his spine. Crap she remembered. shifting a bit so to add a little distance between the two of them. If he knew one thing, Amaya getting upset was never a good thing. Thankfully Kieran didn’t return until twenty minutes later, and hopefully Amaya calmed down. “You’re not the only one you ass.” Amaya grumbled to herself however it was loud enough for maybe Kieran to pick up. Kirie was close enough to hear and he sighed, “Amaya please, don’t start, just calm down-“ he paused when she looked in his direction. Turning to Austin, he said quietly, “Uh you may want to scoot back a bit. My idiot friend here knows fire magic.” Motioning for him to scoot back a bit, Kirie made one last attempt to calm Amaya down but it seemed it just wasn’t going to work.

Already the air was getting hot and a fire blazed in her eyes. Gritting her teeth she glared at Kieran, it had been a while since she got upset but it seemed today was the day her cheery self would crumble. “I’m sorry I made you remember Kieran but don’t go acting like you’re the only one who lost someone. And don’t go playing me as the bad guy here; I lost my brother too, no I lost my entire family. Would you like to know the cause of my grief, the reason I’m reminded every day?” At this point, Amaya was too angry to care whether anyone wanted to know her life story or not but Kieran’s words rubbed her the wrong way. Realizing where she was going with this, Kirie was getting ready to stand back up, “Amaya please just stop, there’s no need to tell them anything.” “Shut up Kirie, he doesn’t have the right to be only one to be pissed off. You’re the reason I’m even telling them any of this because you couldn’t keep your promise.” A pained look crossed his face, the first time he had ever actually dropped that friendly mask of his. “I guess I am, well then I best get out of your sight then.” Standing up, he began to walk away but paused to look at Kiran, “She may be an idiot, but she’s right though if just a little bit.” Shoving his hands in his pockets Kirie left the small group.

It was then that a certain woman decided to make an appearance. “Well shall we get this all started up. . .?” Ms. Brumfield trailed off realizing the tension in the air. Folding her arms, she looked at each and every one of their faces and frowned. “Am I to assume no one is in the mood to remember Connors good deeds, or are you guys just going to sit there and mope?” The older woman did her best to use the right words but for all she knew she may have just made matters worse. Amaya on the other hand thought otherwise. “Why don’t we continue since I obviously don’t know my place.” looking at Kieran, then in the direction of where Kirie had run off to. Amaya couldn’t help but regret saying what she said. Sighing she looked away, “You don’t have to forgive me, hate me all you want Kieran but I am sorry” Standing up, Amaya headed over towards where Ms. Brumfield stood and waited for the service to start.

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.
