Noel stared down at the map in her hands. She unlike most was the newest person here and while others ran about knowing exactly where to go... Noel awkwardly had to peek into doors hoping each time she did she would find the right one... And each time like the last she was horrifically wrong. Sighing heavily Noel once again tried to pin point where she was... She knew already she was late for the Landscape Management class but she still hoped to at least reach the glass in time to learn something!

Giving up on figuring it out on her own Noel managed to chase after someone and after spending a few second coughing heavily after the short burst of exercise she was finally given directions to the correct classroom. Letting out a sigh of relief, Noel followed the directions and soon arrived at the door. Everyone was already seated and at the realization she was as she had previously theorized late made her cheeks flame and her mouth dry. Taking a deep breath Noel shyly knocked on the door frame to get the teachers attention.

Immediately as the noise hit the room everyone turned to stare at her. Blushing furiously Noel waved to the class. "Am... I late?" As soon as she spoke people laughed though Noel could not tell if it was at her soft Italian accent or her somewhat un-needed question... The laughter stopped when the teacher gave his class a harsh look of reprimand before ushering her into the class and allowing her to present herself. Taking a deep breath Noel smiled weakly. "Hello... My name is Noel Luma Mai... I just moved here from Italy and I guess..." Noel lost herself for a moment in the endless swirl of thoughts within her mind. "Oh! Sorry little day-dream." The class laughed again and her pale cheeks lit up once more. "I guess that uh yeah so hi?"

A few giggles followed her awkward introduction and the teacher who seemed not entirely impressed gestured for Noel to take her seat next to a particularly gloomy looking young man. Once Noel was seated the white haired girl immediately sought out an empty corner and simply allowed her mind to drift off into her own little world again. A world far beyond that of the classroom and beyond the gloomy looking boy next to her...

Eliab noticed the blush on Kat's face at the thought of not doing well at the waltz, thinking it best not to mention the topic. Her response to his request caused him to feel much delight inside, yet he dared not let any of it show. Only a calm demeanor revealed itself as he grinned slightly. "Cool, and I can see why that was awkward." The Southern yankie's closed-mouth smile grew wider at the sight of Katherine's prior to heading to her class, Daileass following her.

I guess I better head on over to Landscape Management/Horticulture Technology. The classroom was easy enough to find, since it was within close proximity to the gardens, where most of the hands-on work in-class was to take place throughout the year. HIs smile faded the moment he spotted his master, Charles, whom was out of sorts and uncharacteristically uncheerful.

"What's the matter, Charles?"

The red-haired Half-Scotsman glanced up at his butler with only his eyes for a brief instant. "Well... details cut short, Anna and I are no longer together. She and her twin brother had to move back to Germany."

Eliab's eyes widened upon hearing his master's explanation. "Holy cow... I'll bet Agatha is takin' it pretty hard, too, since she had such deep feelings for Andrew."

The Half-Scotsman nodded. "Yep."

The bell rang right after Eliab got seated. The teacher, a middle-aged man with a mustache and short beard, gave part of the orientation for the semester on what will be learned, mentioning pruning, irrigation, pest control, and all that stuff which is part of both Landscape Management and Horticulture Technology which are rather basic. He was about to mention the kinds of mowers and tools to be used when a girl with a soft Italian accent came in. Most of the surrounding classmates laughed at her, but not Charles and Eliab. Even if the Half-Scotsman was not out of sorts, he would still have not found anything funny about what the girl said or how she said it. Eliab was reminded all over again of the embarrassment Katherine had at the auditorium the previous day, when she was shoved to the ground in front of everyone. The whole thought of people laughing at either or both incidents sickened the Southern yankie to the core.

The teacher noticed Eliab's seething anger brewing and managed to get the class's attention before it all escalated further. "Now that the child stuff is out of the way, why don't we move on to discuss the kinds of mowers and tools we have to work with during our hands-on segments of this class?"

It took several minutes to discuss everything, but once it was completed, there was plenty of time to look about and chat. The yankie butler nudged his master. "Well, there's plenty of time before the bell rings for our third after-school class. Maybe we can make some new friends, here?"

Charles nodded meekly. "I guess so..." It then hit him that the Italian girl, Noel, was sitting right next to him! Might as well get to know her a bit more. She could use a pal after that embarrassment, whatever it was about. He managed to lift his head up and glance over at her with a small grin, even if that same closed-mouth grin was a fake one. "Hey there... Noel? That's a rather nice name for a lass like yourself." Hopefully, that was not a flirtatious statement. The Half-Scotsman held his hand out for a shake. "I'm Charles Aaron. The lad right next to me is my butler, Eliab Othniel."

Eliab nodded with a small smile while speaking with his usual Southern (American) accent. "A pleasure to meet you, Noel."

Noel was lost in her own little world while the teacher continued to talk about mowers or tools or whatever. In fact she was so lost in her own thoughts she did not even notice the sudden silence from the teacher and sudden gossiping of her class mates. Noel's day dream was cut into piece by the sound of someone saying her name. Blinking back into reality Noel looked around frantically until she noticed who had addressed her. It was none other then the gloomy young man. Blinking her gray blue eyes Noel stared at his hand and panic struck her. Which hand do I use to shake back? Oh heavens this probably is going to seem so impolite. Hesitantly Noel reached out her right hand then decided it had to be her left she had to use... Finally deciding it was probably neither Noel awkwardly wrapped both her small hands around his and shook. "Hi... And erm... Thanks I guess..." Noel blinked even if he had been flirting she would not be able to tell after all the sickly young girl had never been engaged in any type of flirtatious conversation.

Noel peeked over at the butler and waved. "Hello... It's nice to meet you both... Though I have a feeling today is not a so much nice day for you... Am I right Mr.Charles?" Noel Pulled her knees up to her chest and hugged them before setting her chin on her knees and giving the red haired boy a knowing look. "I can tell you were doing the sad eyes anyone who's just received bad news has." Smiling gently Noel tilted her head to the side and stared up into space. "But you know... Everything turns out alright in the end... And if things are not alright then it is not yet the end." Noel then proceeded to hum a gentle tune to herself and wiggle her feet though her moving feet were not even close to in tune with her strange humming.

Charles saw how hesitant Noel was at shaking before using both to shake his. She seemed timid, shy, somewhat sheltered from society. Charles's fake smile dropped at the mention of him being sad. "Oh, well... " He placed his left hand at the back of his neck as he glanced downwards, staring at his desk. "You see, a lass named Anna-Beth had to move back to Germany, so... the relationship she and I were in was cut short due to distance. The worst part is, it did not last long, at all." At least Noel is being sweet about it and all. Reminds me of...When listening to Noel's humming, he suddenly had a flashback of yesterday, when he saw Anna-Beth hugging her own legs while in a sad state.

...

He spotted her sitting on a bench just outside the gardens, hugging her knees up to her chest while signing slowly and silently in German. Charles then turned to Eliab with, "I think I better head on over there and see what's the matter."

The Yankee butler nodded. "You want me to come with you, Charles?"

The master patted his butler on the back as he chuckled. "You kidding? You'd miss out on..."

Eliab blushed and said angrily. "Okay! I get it, already! Sheesh!" During that time, the two boys were in the gardens with Katherine and Daileass. It was just the perfect opportunity to tease the poor Southern American about his crush on Kat. It was hilarious to the Half-Scotsman, though he had another reason for the teasing: he wanted Eliab to relax and be himself.

Charles made his way out the garden and towards the bench Anna-Beth was sitting at. "Argument with your brother, again?" He sat beside the poor blonde, placing a hand on the far shoulder. "That a rather frequent occurrence?"

Anna-Beth perked up at the familiar voice, and turned towards Charles. Her cheeks tinted a delicate pink, but she smiled, any shreds of anger disappearing from her face.

"Oh," she sighed, "it's a regular occurrence. Siblings bicker, twins especially, since we can read all the nasty things we want to call each other in the other's mind." She giggled softly, and stroked the scarf in her lap and sighed again, eyes sentimental. "I really wish he hadn't torn it though. I worked hard on this. It was a present, and he spoiled it. I could always tell Mother and Father, that would make him crosser than anything, being scolded by our parents. Sorry, I'm just...mumbling to myself now."

Charles' eyes widened as he thought to himself, 'What does that bastard think he is, going so far as that? If Eliab doesn't set him straight, I may have to! But, how? I promised not to fight him!' All he could think of doing was holding Anna-Beth close to him, saying with a comforting tone, "You know, I think I know the perfect place where we can escape all that stress! The music is relaxing, the pasta and pizza authentic, and the atmosphere friendly! I can call Kenneth and he can drive us there!" The hed-haired boy let go and placed a hand on her cheek, smiling halfway. "What do you think? You up for that?"

Just then, Eliab arrived to say, "It's time we head back to the dorms, Charles! It's close to curfew!"

Anna-Beth's blush deepened and she smiled slightly, "I'd love to, but...curfew. I'd hate for you to get in any trouble. Really, it would be amazing to go out tonight...but you should head back to the dorms, and I should call for the car to take me home...I'm moving into the dorms in a week or so."

Charles blushed a little, himself. "Y-Yeah, and I wouldn't want a lass like you in trouble with your folks for being late, either!"

Eliab smirked a little and clapped. "Alright, Romeo! Come on! Party's over!"


The Half-Scotsman shook his head violently prior to slapping himself in the face. "Snap out of it, Charles! Anna's left town, by now! Deal with it!" Several classmates still in the room rather than walking about in the garage gave the poor red-head confused glances before going back to whatever they were doing beforehand. This made him blush. "Uh... Sorry, Noel. I was kind of... reminded of her... for a moment, there."

Eliab patted his master on the back. "Take it easy, buddy. One of the two of us has to be the relaxed guy, here."

Noel jumped when the red head suddenly slapped himself in the face. "Oh... Oh no... I don't wanna remind you of anything sad... I'm sorry." Noel sighed heavily and slumped her shoulders. "First day here and I certainly don't seem to be making any good impressions... Not even on the teacher." Noel let her head fall and hit the desk harder then she should have which caused her to let out a squeak of pain. But this pain was soon forgotten. If her family found out about her failing at making friends or even finding her classrooms they would instantly scoop her up and take her home to be bored to death slowly by her many tutors. Huffing Noel looked up at no one and nothing in particular.

"No... I refuse to go back home so quickly and be dotted on for the rest of my miserable life!" Huffing Noel pulled out a map of the school and shoved it in the red heads face. "You! My next class is dance and I am determined to show up to that darn class on time and not make a fool of myself then be sent back to italy so my parents can constantly chase me about... So anyway." Noel's voice softened as she hung her head. "C-Can you point out where it is so I don't get lost in the hallways again..." Noel peeked up at Charles her gray and blue eyes both wide and innocent and more or less pleading for him to help her out.

Charles instantly regretted his initial reaction when he saw how disappointed Noel was, waiting until she finished mentioning bad impression to hold his hands out in front of him while saying, "N-no! It's nothing you've done! I-it's just..." The poor boy could not finish his explanation due to the map suddenly muffling him.

"You! My next class is dance and I am determined to show up to that darn class on time and not make a fool of myself then be sent back to Italy so my parents can constantly chase me about... So anyway." Noel's voice softened as she hung her head. "C-Can you point out where it is so I don't get lost in the hallways again..." Noel peeked up at Charles her gray and blue eyes both wide and innocent and more or less pleading for him to help her out.

As much as the pleading reminded him of when Anna-Beth used sort of the same eye tactic to get him to promise not to fight Andrew, the innocence radiating from the look Noel gave was too much to resist. In fact, it actually made him feel a bit better. After all, he doubted Anna would want him to feel so down for the rest of his life, and he most definitely did not want her to be like that either, even with the move to Germany.

Finally, Charles said to the Italian girl, "S-s-sure!" Setting the map on the desk, he pointed to the dance room. "That is the room, in the building where you have Gym and some of the sports. I can show you after this class. I'm going there, too."

Eliab nodded. "And, just a reminder, for Landscape/Horticulture, it'll be a good idea to have an extra set of clothes handy, since this class includes some hands-on experience. Nobody said agricultural work was glamorous."

Noel's smile returned. "Awesomeness!" She quickly did a little victory dance which was cut short when she suddenly felt herself get light headed and had to sit down. "... That actually why I chose this class Eliab... I've been pretty sick my whole life... I though landscaping and outdoorsy things might work better then my parents using every single medical thing there company makes on me..." She shuttered just at the though of all the bitter pills she'd always had to eat luckily her grandma did not believe in such things, and so the white haired Italian had been spared the last few days from eating such things...

Noel marked with a pencil (That had previously been holding her white hair in a bun) where the class was. "After dance I have cooking... Though I'm pretty sure your not in that... I just can't really see you in a pink apron handing out cupcakes... Well..." Noel snickered. "Now I can." She giggled to herself at the strange thought of the red head offering her a cupcake... It was a strange thought but thinking of cupcakes only distracted her mind from non-food related tasks.

Charles grinned from ear to ear at the sight of how enthusiastic Noel was. Quite the hyper gal, huh? His smile faltered a little when he noticed her getting light headed. Both he and Eliab were stunned when they heard Noel speak of having to consume so many different kinds of pills.

The Half-Scotsman spoke first. "Holy shi...take." That was close. I almost cussed. "Every pill? That's insane! If they were still being tested when you took them, your mum and dad are nuts!"

Eliab shrugged. "I don't think putting it that way is very polite, Charles, but I do agree that doing such a thing her parents did is rather excessive. It could be the pills added to the problem instead of helped, leading to the sickly state she is in, right now. I mean, if those pills were new, then they still had to do thorough checking, more than once, I might add, before doing anything else with them. There is that, and there are plenty of factors to consider."

The mood changed to delightful when Noel went on about cooking, mentioning the near impossible chance of Charles presenting a cupcake while wearing a pink apron. The thought made the master-butler pair laugh. Charles spoke up with, "I think a white apron would do, were I to cook or bake."

Eliab nodded in agreement. "Besides, a lot of the great chefs and bakers are men. Just look at Bobby Flay, Emeril Lagasse, Guy Fieri, Alton Brown, and Bartolo "Buddy" Valastro. They are tops."

Noel huffed. "Ok well they test the pills first! Geez there not trying to kill me... they just want me to be healthy even if they do go about it the wrong way... Hence why I'm really new to the whole school thing... I never really left home until now... My grandma's taking care of me she told me no more pills and send me outside lots..." Noel smiled at the last few days of outdoor freedom she'd been granted. They were lovely.

When Eliab began going on about chefs Noel blinked. "Erm... Well yeah chefs are male and female alike... Nothing agaisnt that I mean Charles in particular running around a kitchen making fancy food just doesn't strike me as his favorite pass time..." Noel blinked and eyes Charles. "He strikes me more as a dude who'd become a famous singer and have millions of fan girls screeching at him or something... Mainly because of his fancy red hair." Noel thought about it then nodded in self agreement.

The bell rang signaling they were now to depart to dance. Noel looked at her map. "Soo... Dance class now." She stood and ran her fingers through her silky shoulder length hair. "I hope we don't have to do super fancy spinny dances... I just know il trip on my partners feet and end up hugging the floor... I've done enough random gravity checks for one day!" Noel realized she was talking to herself again and looked up. "Lead the way Charles!"

Charles and Eliab looked at each other an instant before slapping themselves on the forehead with a simultaneous, "Doh!"

Eliab chuckled a little. "My brain went a little fried, there! Sorry for misunderstanding you, Noel!"

Charles laughed nervously at the thought of being a singer. "Well, uh... my hair's not that fancy, and I'm not actually going to be on stage. You see, my mum is preparing me for taking over a landscape company which operates across the European Union, and then some other countries in Europe, as well."

The bell rang signaling they were now to depart to dance. Noel looked at her map. "Soo... Dance class now." She stood and ran her fingers through her silky shoulder length hair. "I hope we don't have to do super fancy spinny dances... I just know il trip on my partners feet and end up hugging the floor... I've done enough random gravity checks for one day!"

Eliab shrugged. "I was there, last period. We didn't do anything complex, today."

Charles glanced toward his butler. "Which dance?"

"The Waltz."

To Charles, it was good news and bad news, at the same time. This may get awkward. Then again, Noel would not have to worry about tripping over anybody. His train of thought was interrupted when he heard her say, "Lead the way Charles!" To which, he chuckled and stated, "Sure!"

While Charles and Noel went to the dance room, Eliab went back to the music room. He figured having two music classes would help to refine his guitar skills some more. Of course, he already had the skills, yet he felt extra time to practice would not hurt. Once there, he glanced around to see that there were a few people there. And, to his relief, the sign up sheets for the winter musical, West Side Story. Just before the bell rang, he signed up to audition for the role of Riff.

I guess most everyone is in the auditorium, again, fiddling with the instruments. On stage, he heard the music teacher say they could experiment with different instruments to get a feel for them. Of course, Eliab went to one of the guitars to start playing. Little did he realize Katherine was in the same music class.

((That's your cue, Sugarplum. This would be a good time to play her favorite song on the piano. ;) ))

----

Meanwhile, at the dance room, the two instructors went over the steps and count for the students and told them to practice on their own for a moment, then partner up. Charles did this for a while to get the hang of it before walking up to Noel with his hand extended. He was disappointed, though, that he would never have the chance to do anything like this with Anna-Beth, now that she was out of town. "Noel, care to dance with me?" A blush came to his features. "Uh, just so we get the hang of the whole thing. I mean, we're only friends, right?" ****! She reminds me about Anna too much! So **** gentle and...

As most everyone else found their dance, Agatha sighed in disappointment and depression that Andrew had to leave. Her first love was no longer in London. She had never felt so lonely in her life, now more isolated than ever before. When she saw Charles and some girl, she shook her head. I'll bet he's trying to cope by attempting to forget, or something. From my experience, though, when something terrible happens, it never goes away. She walked on over to the two classmates and said, "Pardon me, but..." Her face was downcast. "The person I was originally going to dance with... well, uh..."

Charles glanced over in Agatha's direction while she spoke, and immediately understood. "I know. Andrew and Anna left for Germany. I was told about it. The relationship between Anna and I was ended because of distance, too. I know just how you feel, Agatha. Well, maybe not, since not only were you and Andrew briefly together, but Anna was your mistress, so... I guess I don't know the extent of... well..."

Agatha nodded. "It's okay. I know what you're trying to say. Anyway..." She glanced upwards. "Do you mind if I practice with you two?"

Noel happily followed Charles to there next class. The dancing was yes for the most part very simple. The only part that sucked was that everyone already knew each other and had partnered up leaving Noel awkwardly standing there. Of course she would have had no problem dancing on her own but it seemed that would not be her fate when suddenly fancy haired Charles came to the rescue. When he asked her if they were friends she clapped. "Yes of course were friends oh I can't wait to tell grandma I've met such nice people."

The small Italian was delighted with her friend when a young lady walked up to them. By what Charles talked about she was Agatha and had under went a similar situation to Charles. Noel smiled and clapped. "Yes of course you may join us I'd love to have another friend. She looked at Agatha. "My name is Noel... Charles is so far my only friend... I'd love another..." Noel looked closely at Agatha and stared into her eyes. "You have nice person eyes... That means your a nice person!" Noel smiled happily feeling on top of the world.

Agatha smiled gently. "Thank you, and I'd love to be your friend." She tilted her head a little sideways. "I take it from your accent that you are from Italy?" Her smile faltered a little at the thought of her parents. "My... mother was Italian, while my father was Greek. We all lived in Athens, where I was born." She now turned her gaze towards the floor. "Before they died to a rioter's gunshots. I've been living with Yia Yia, here in London, ever since. The hatred between Greece and Turkey is what killed my parents, who despised that political feud, a feud still going on."

Charles frowned a little. "Stuff that out of control is exactly why I hate politics. Anyway, that had to be rough for you."

The Grecian nodded. "I don't want to talk about it further." She looked up, again. "Noel, would you happen to be needing a maid? Anna, Charle's ex, was my mistress before she moved back to Germany with Andrew, so I am in need of a mistress."

Noel smiled. "Yes yes! I was born and raised in Italy..." She smiled until Agatha began to talk about negative things. O-Oh not... Not again." Neol frowned and hung her head. "Everywhere I go everyone I meet I keep reminding them of such sad things... First I remind Charles of stuff now you."

The pale haired girl frowned and her eyes grew sad while she flopped down not paying anymore attention until she faintly drifted back to the present hearing Agatha ask her a question. She had not heard everything but she registered enough. "I don't have a maid I guess..." She sighed heavily still upset about being a representation of negative ideas and things.

Charles and Agatha felt bad for saying anything. Charles, unable to think of anything else, decided to sit down next to Noel and hug her for a moment. "Uh, well... it's nothing you've done, i-it's just... it's just that things happened, y'know? C'mon! Cheer up!" He conjured the sweetest smile he could as he let go. "Look, we have our moments when we are sad, but that doesn't mean we are always like that. I mean, shi...take!" almost cursed, again! Does she even mind if people do that? "If Eliab focused on his past all the time, he never would have gathered the courage to talk to Katherine, in the first place!" He laughed a little at the thought of it. "He has a crush on her, big time!" Winking, he added with a whisper. "Don't tell him I said that. He wants to tell Kat his feelings for her on his own."

Agatha nodded. "Non siamo tryng per mettere. Prometto, non entrerò e sul mio passato. Non davvero parlo molto, comunque. Inoltre, sarebbe gentile di divertimento da condividere segreti in una lingua sappiamo entrambi." We're not tryng to put you down. I promise, I won't go on and on about my past. I don't really talk much, anyway. Besides, it would be kind of fun to share secrets in a language we both know.

Noel looked over at Agatha. "It's fine talking to me and telling me your past... I don't mind..." She stood slowly and sighed trying to re-boost her morale. She was happy the two of them did not mind her or having her around but she did still feel a tad guilty. Noel looked over before huffing and dragging Agatha onto the dance floor. Adjusting her voice to sound like a very romantic sounding french man Noel raised her eye brow as she spun Agatha. "Madam you are looking GORGEOUS today! I believe you and me will dance off into z'e sunset!"

Noel was actually fairly good at dancing as both a male and female. As they danced past Charles she smirked. "Don't worry my little red headed flower I shall dance with you next!" Noel kept the french man accent while she spoke to Charle's she thought a little bit of goofiness would lift up the two somewhat gloom and doom students. When it was time to switch Noel finished off the dance like a pro and grinned when the teacher commented on her skill's as a male dancer but expect to see her in her place as a girl this time.

Eliab just got the guitar ready when he heard the piano being played softly and beautifully. Could it be? I think Kat mentioned she played piano. Turning around, there she was. Her eyes were closed, her sweet smile on her face, her fingers hitting the notes with ease. The dark blonde Yankee with glasses watched and listened intently, a soft grin on his face as he thought to himself how amazing the brunette was. Once she finished, he turned his gaze away. Putting the guitar down, he looked towards Kat again and clapped.

"That was magnificent!"

Poor Agatha went speechless in utter confusion as she suddenly was dancing with Noel. Wide-eyed, she could not even think of something to say. Relief came when it was time to switch, though she was careful not to say a word about it or even sigh.

Charles, on the other hand, attempted not to laugh. He thought the whole situation was funny. Finally, he walked up and began dancing the waltz with Noel. He simply said to her, "That was hilarious!"

Noel giggled and allowed Charles to lead. "Merci!" She smiled. "I though you both needed a little laugh so why not? Though I think I might have terrified Agatha..." She smiled at the girl awkwardly and continued to dance. Noel was careful about her feet nearly stepping on Charles a few times. She was not use to dancing with someone so much taller and more muscular then her, normally her father or mom danced with her so she knew how to dance she was just trying to get use to dancing with Charles. Focusing on hr feet Noel huffed when she stepped on his foot. "Sorry!" She quickly blurted her eyes going wide as she retreated her feet a little and her muscles tenced.

Eliab could not help but internally adore the expression on Kat's face. Once she sat next to him and asked if he liked the guitar, he nodded and said, "Yep, I do." He picked it up and added, "I'd sometimes play songs, or bits of them, I heard. Let's see..."

The Yankee prepared the strings before using it to play, guitar style, the song Katherine did, earlier. He did not even look at the strings, he just knew which ones to use. It was all natural for him. His face towards the floor with his eyes closed, Eliab had no difficulty hitting the right notes. Once he finished, he glanced back at Katherine. A half grin on his face.

----

Agatha shrugged with an awkward smile as Noel glanced over to her. Charles with smiling ear to ear while dancing when, suddenly, he was stomped on the foot, which made him grimace, a little. When Noel Apologized, he said, "Don't worry about it."

Noel smiled. "I really am sorry... It's just I've never danced with anyone so much taller and bigger then me... It's tough to adjust... But your a marvelous dancer so I am so very happy about that!" Noel's smile turned into a beam of joy as they continued to dance to the music. She was worried because she knew at some point in time they would have to do a spin and Noel always trembled at the part where she had to spin and she always messed up. Gripping onto Charles she waited for the horrible moment where she would be spun.

Elaib blushed a little. "Thanks." He then pulled out a picture of a friend of his. "A friend of mine taught me how to play guitar. Listening to him as he gave instructions without using any paper, I kind of picked everything up that way. This is a photo of him. His name's David." The photo was of an older guy, about eighteen. Brown eyes, black hair, tan skin, and an athletic build. "Dave always had a smile on his face, always friendly. He was a close friend of mine. He moved to France, I hear. He has a ton of family there. Fluent in the language, too."

Putting up the photo, Eliab looked over at Katherine, whom he saw was still shocked at how he could perform a song just by hearing it once. "Uh..." Dang it, Eliab! Say something! "Where did you learn that song? It's... nice."

----

Charles laughed a little. "It's okay! Don't worry about it!" His grin widened when Noel's did. Of course, being gripped so tightly made him worry a little. Was she dreading something, did something make her feel uncomfortable? He was about to find out, when he finally got into position to let her spin. Agatha just watched while smiling. She actually thought Charles and Noel looked cute together, though it was still disappointing that it could not have been Anna-Beth dancing with the red-head.

----

Rebecca's face got redder as Ackley stumbled and held her. She stood perfectly still, where she was. She had mixed feelings as she did. For one thing, she was glad her master's classes went well, and that he took up sports. Then again, she wondered why Ackley was still stuttering. She was glad for the distraction when she was introduced to Dalzell.

"Nice to meet you, Dalzell. I'm Rebecca, Ackley's maid." She looked towards Ackley, then noticed he still had a some red on his face. Why is he still blushing. "I-I really am sorry for spinning you like that. I don't know what came over me."

Noel spun when it was time but the spin turned awkward and she ended up twisting her arm and leaning on Charles. "I-I knew I'd mess up." Her cheeks went pink and she sighed. "Sorry I can never do spins right... Maybe you could... Help me?" She was halfway to neon red by now as she looked up at the tall boy embarrassed and shy about admitting her ultimate and several defeats at trying to spin. But the boy always seemed nothing but optimistic and friendly so Noel was not to afraid that he'd get annoyed with her.

Charles blushed a little when Noel ended up leaning against him. She seemed a bit klutzy. Of course, there was this weird feeling inside him. What was it? It could not have been love. His relationship with Anan just ended, so why was there this fuzzy feeling inside? It left him confused as all can be.

When asked to help, it made him smile a laugh a little. "Well, first thing is, relax, don't be so stiff." He guided her with his hand so that she would spin. "You see? You don't need to worry so much about it."

Agatha watched with a smile on her face. This reminded her a little of Andrew, whom was also somewhat relaxed as him. It was bitter sweet for her.

----

Rebecca smiled a little when hearing Ackley what Ackley said. It was a little comforting, along with the fact he accepted her apology. She felt a little better.

“Well, I’m glad that your tryouts went well. It means your one step closer to becoming a great gymnast,” He spoke, whilst turning to face the girl again. Forming a smile, he tried his best to seem normal and not worry anyone. “I'll be... cheering for you, should you ever... need it.”

The girl managed to let out a small, "Thank you." When she noticed Dalzell asleep, she looked around to make sure nobody was looking or listening. After that, she leaned up to his ear and whispered, "Um... well... you might find this completely weird, but..." She stood up straight, now, fidgeting with her fingers some while laughing nervously, adding with a whisper, "Uh, you know how people can do crazy things? Well, uh, you see..." Looking around her again, she decided, What the hell! Hesitantly, Rebecca leaned up and kissed Ackley on the cheek. "I.. I like you, Ackley. Crazy for me to say, but it's true. I... guess I was afraid to come out and say it because, well... you know, the whole maid and master thing."

Noel listened quietly to Charles instructions and managed to spin. When she stopped her eyes widened and she beamed. "Thank you! I've never managed to do one of those without tripping or messing up!" Noel wanted to do a victory dance but with the teacher watching her unamused Noel decided against it. Instead she giggled and continued to dance. "I'm starting to think your better at teaching dance then the teacher is..." Noel smirked and could not hide her amusement, the amusement that came mainly from imagining Charles as a teacher... a dance teacher. Perhaps her grandma was right when she told Noel her imagination was just a little too active?

Eliab smiled when Katherine smiled, yet that faded as he heard her explain that her grandmother died weeks after teaching her the song. "Sorry to hear that. It had to be rough for you." Hearing of how Kat got back into music when her older brother did made him feel a little better, yet he hated the fact he reminded Katherine of something so sad.

He watched as Katherine played another song, just as gentle. Listening to her sing caused his eyes to sparkle a little in adoration. Wow... A few seconds after the song stopped, Eliab said, "Amazing... just... amazing!" He immediately realized Katherine would notice his doe-eyed expression after hearing him and recovered just in time (hopefully), clearing his throat before adding, "Well, since you've been looking at the piano the whole time while performing, perhaps we could get on that, together?" He laughed nervously. "Although, I should tell you ahead of time, I'm not much good at that instrument."

He placed the guitar he back in its place, then walked over to the piano and began fidgeting with it to get a feel for it. After that, Eliab attempted to play a jazz-like song, yet failed miserably at some of the notes he had in mind. Placing a hand on the back of his neck, he told Kat, "Uh... yeah, I'm not great at it like you are. Perhaps you could give me a few pointers on this thing?" The actual reason for doing that was, he wanted to spend some time with Katherine however he could. Playing music together seemed the best option, since it was a music class they were in.

----

Charles smiled at Noel's compliments, yet he laughed nervously at being considered a better teacher at dance. "Nah, not really. I'm more of a landscape expert than a dance expert."

Agatha giggled the moment Charles said what he said. "And yet, you managed to help Noel out without much trouble. That is a start, right?"

Shrugging, while still dancing with Noel, the half-Scotsman gave his explanation. "Yeah, well, I'm expecting to take over my mum's landscape company, so that's what I've been focusing on, so... even if I could pass for a dance instructor, my career is pretty much set, aside from additional training on certain things involving the business side of things."

----

Rebecca thought to herself how what Ackley first managed did not make much sense, at least to her. When I mentioned the maid and butler thing, I meant how people would look at a relationship between us the wrong way, but I guess I should not mention that to him. She was taken completely by surprise when he asked if it was okay for him to kiss her. Looking around to ensure nobody was watching, she moved closer to him and closed her eyes, waiting for him to make the move. Of course, her face showed a tint of pink (well, actually read, due to her skin tone) just from her thinking of what her first kiss would be like.

Noel blinked. "My parents have allowed me to take whatever job I wish... Though they don't lie about how they expect me to show interest in there business... To be honest I blame the pills for my weakness so... If I took take it over I suppose Il have to do some major changes." Noel gave a smirk and continued to allow Charles to seemingly expertly lead her about the room. She smiled. "I like landscaping... It seems so fun..." She gave a distant smile and seemed to think of a bunch of things. "I like outdoors period... But mom and dad say I can't go out much cause it's bad for my health." Noel smiled again and went back to looking at there feet.
