Introduction

Image


In the world of Rhindeval, there were many kingdoms ruled by good kings and queens. Each had either a prince or a princess. The princes and princesses all knew each other, but one day their whole world would change. When they were still very young (ages range from 5 to 12) an evil enchantress infiltrated the birthday party of one of the princes and killed all of the rulers and captured their children. She brainwashes all of the children before banishing the princesses as well as her sister, a good sorceress, to Earth and taking in the princes as her servants. Over the years she acquired the lands of the other kingdoms using her dark magic. Rebels have tried overthrowing her, but to no avail.

Meanwhile the princesses are adopted on Earth. With no memory of their original home, the princesses live out normal lives while the princes grow up being loyal to the Enchantress, who is now the new Queen of Rhindeval. The only reminder the girls have of their home are pendents they wear and are never parted from them.

Years pass and the princesses are now attending the same local college in modern times of the USA. All the princes and princesses have aliases, without knowledge of their real names. Soon though the princesses will start remembering Rhindeval with the help of the Good Sorceress, who has finally found all of them. The sorceress knows that the princesses are destined to return to Rhindeval, save the princes and defeat her sister. And she'll do that with just a little bit of magic.

It has been 13 years since the Evil Enchantress took over. Princes and Princesses are ages from 18 to 25 now. The princes are currently serving the Queen's bidding. It'll be up to ya'll to decide what their duties are. They can be a member of the royal guard, to an assassin, to anything you want. However all of them do report to the Queen at some point when she summons them. The queen herself hasn't age a day or at least hasn't appeared to have age. She uses dark magic make sure of that by stealing the life force of young women throughout the kingdoms. The princes have no memories of being royal and all believe they have served the queen all their lives. The Queen gave the princes new names in order for them not to remember their true names.

The Good Sorceress is making preparations to unlocks the memories of the princesses. They are currently living out normal college lives. The college they all attend is located in a fictional town in the Pacific Northwest, in the state of Oregon. The girls will all be attending a local festival in town and will run into each other and it's from here they'll all be gathered by the Sorceress as they start to remember. The pendents they have are all precious stones that they wear as necklaces. Each is different and unique. Keep that in mind if you reserve a princess. Oh the princes will get their own magical items, but that'll come later. RPG will briefly start in two places- Rhindeval and Earth, but once the girls are back to their original home, it'll stay exclusively in Rhindeval. Plans are to travel through the various kingdoms; hence the adventure aspect of this RPG. Also through the pendents, all princesses will develop magical skills of their own.

*Warning: This post may contain bodily harm that could be triggering*




Once Alcinder had reached his dungeons - they were his - he had devised several delicious plans on how to torture this vermin Vordada. First thing to attend to, however, was ensuring that the sacrifice was properly prepared for her majesty.

Upon entry to the sacrificial chambers, he was unable to contain the giggle of glee at the sight of the traumatized girl. The empty, hollowed look in her eyes was exactly what he had been going for when he had gifted her to his underlings. She was almost akin to a doll, as she sat in the corner unmoving, slumped against the wall, gaze staring off at something they could not see or possibly nothing at all. Her lips did tremble a bit, as though she were uttering words that only she could hear, but otherwise she was still, and he reveled in the broken doll that lay crumpled before him.

Dropping to a crouch before her, he grabbed her limp wrist and pulled, rising and bringing her with him so that she dangled almost lifelessly before him. ”How unfortunate. I didn’t expect you to break so easily. Perhaps I should have my fun with the next one first, as it seems that my little pets can’t completely control their own urges.” He leaned forward and sniffed the girl’s neck and hair, a groan of enjoyment escaping his lips at the scent of a woman. Once he had his fill of her smell, though, he let her fall back to the floor in a heap. ”Entirely useless, you are, other than as a sacrificial lamb to keep my beautiful Queen happy.” He dusted his hands off together and motioned for one of the prior men to grab her and with that, she was dragged limply to the room that the actual sacrifice would occur in,

Now, onto Vordada …




Alcinder woke early, almost giddy with excitement to continue the torture of the previous night. Vordada’s screams of agony had delighted his dreams, filling him with a rejuvenated sense of satisfaction, and he stretched on his cot as he sat up. The old blanket was tossed aside as he rose to his feet, the cold airs of the dungeon instantly hitting his bare skin. As he crossed the room that he had claimed as his own and began to dress, he mulled over the endless possibilities that the day before him held. Perhaps he would get another lovely girl to play with.
Once clothed, he snatched up his bag of torture tools - he liked to think of himself as an anti-doctor - and easily made his way from his room and down the small hallway that separated it from the cell that Vordada was being held in.

”Rise and shine, Vordada the Vermin! I am here once again to keep you company, and boy oh boy do we have a full day ahead of us,” he announced gleefully as he unlocked the cell. Vordada groaned in response, unable to utter a word through his swollen mouth. Half of his teeth were gone, and his lips were cracked and caked with dried blood. One eye was entirely swollen shut and the other quite close to the same, but despite this the man was still able to open it just enough to peer at the white haired demon before him. As soon as he laid eyes on him, he let out a gruntled scream and attempted to crawl away, but Alcinder simply chuckled and dropped his bag to the ground, an ominous clanging sound resonating from it. This sent Vordada into a flurry as he tried to scramble away from Alcinder, but he simply grabbed the man’s ankles and yanked him back in one movement, smashing him into the bars of the cell as he did.

”Now, now, Vermin - didn’t we talk about this type of attitude yesterday?” he clucked at the man, in a crouch beside his head. Vordada groaned in response and attempted to rise, but instantly crumpled again. ”Oh, you want to stand? Here, don’t worry - I’ll help you!” With that, he grabbed Vordada by the hair and yanked hair, pulling the man to a stumbling, bent-over stance. Alcinder lowered his head to look Vordada in the face, his eyes wide and a blank expression on his face. ”Don’t worry, friend; I’ll take great care of you.”

After that, there were only screams.




”S-S-Sir Quillon!”

With a sound of annoyance, Alcinder flung Vordada to the ground. The man was barely more than a corpse at this point, blood pouring from nearly every possibly place, and the only sign of life was the raggedly drawn breaths that broke through the stillness of the cell. Intent on leaving him to rot, Alcinder approached the cell bars, glaring out at the man who stood on the other side. ”Can’t you see that I’m busy?” he snarled.

The knight trembled a bit under his blood thirsty gaze and barely managed to stammer, ”Th-There was an-an assasination attempt! O-On the Queen! Sir Veldine has sent me to inform you to prepare for an inquisition!”

At this, Alcinder was both intrigued and absolutely infuriated. Who dared attempt to hurt his Ivelda!

Without a moment of hesitation he was out of the cell, leaving the mess for his subordinates to take care of, and on his way to the throne room, intent on getting to the bottom of whatever had happened to his precious Queen.

”Overthinking is the biggest cause of unhappiness."
~Unknown

Speech Code ~ #0B610B
| Thought Code ~ #01A9DB




When Miss Lilith asked if anyone had any further questions, Althea’s mind buzzed as it ricocheted loudly with an endless stream of inquiries of her own. There were so many things to ask but so little time, how was she to discern which one to ask first, which to ask last? Which to skip, which to ignore? What if she asked an unimportant question and wasted time instead of focusing on one that could have helped them in the future?

The stress of it was all too much, so instead of bothering to ask anything, she asked nothing. She would save her thoughts for later and write them down, that way they would be more organized. Once she had calmed down, then she could focus.




The rest of the day passed as any other for her once Althea had left the festival. She had nervously said her farewells to the other women, awkward in every way that she could be, before scampering off like a frightened rabbit. Of course, she could not help but feel uncomfortable when so suddenly confronted by such impactful memories and that many people from her past at once; it was far too overstimulating! Anyone would agree, certainly!

A hand gently stroked Lily as she lay curled in a tiny ball in her lap, basking in the morning rays. It was the morning following the day of the festival and the duo were currently sprawled leisurely in Althea’s apartment, having spent the night cuddling and watching kdramas while crying and eating all of the unhealthy food. Of course, this was mostly Althea, as Lily was simply a kitten and unable to eat human food, but of course Althea had given Lily her own set of treats for the self-pity-party. Despite the animal’s inability to actually understand human words, or at least hold a conversation, Althea had spent the better part of her night telling her little kitten everything that had happened at the festival - because in reality, who else was she going to tell? She had no real friends, and if she told anyone in her family they would immediately send her to the doctor for a psychiatric evaluation, and she could not have that happen, not when she was this close to finally finding out who she was.

A small sound pinged, bringing her phone to life and instantly drawing her attention to it. With her free hand she tilted it slightly to peer down at the email notification - a message from Miss Lilith?

Almost uncertainly, Althea swiped open her phone and opened the email, quickly browsing over the contents of it. She wished that she could say that she was surprised, but of course Lilith had mentioned attempting to contact this ‘Fairy Queen’ already, so it came as no shock that this email had come through. It was quite early, though, as she glanced at the time in the upright corner of her phone. She had a little bit of time until she had to be at Lilith’s home, so at least she could try and get some homework and studying done perhaps.




Surprisingly enough, Lilith’s home wasn’t too far from Althea’s, so it took her little time to reach the address that the woman had forwarded. As she pulled up out front, she notated the lack of activity and vehicles before flicking a glance at the time. She was only fifteen minutes early - punctuality was important and to her, if you were on time you were late and if you were early you were on time - but it was unlikely that this would bother Miss Lilith. Besides, it would give the woman time to eat the breakfast that she had picked up for her. With that thought in mind, she grabbed the paper bag of breakfast meals, the drink carrier, and slid from her car with a litheness generally reserved for dancers.

A heel hooked the door shut and a small beep followed the slam, lights flashing on the Ford Mustang Bullitt that she had bought a couple of years ago. As she made her way up the sidewalk and trudged up the steps, her hand moved out and tapped lightly on the door, her wish to enter and eat her breakfast outweighing her shy personality.

”Sometimes the worst place that you can be is inside your own head."
~Unknown
Speech Code ~ #FF0000
| Thought Code ~ #FF8000




Everything had come as a shock to Willow and was overwhelming to say the least. As the other girls began to slowly disperse, seemingly in their own dazes, she found a seat for herself to listen to the stories that Miss Lilith wanted to share of Rhindeval. It was difficult for her to concentrate on the words that filled the empty air, however, as she found herself going in and out of memories and thoughts circling her old life and those that were in it. Her parents, their dragons, her auntie, her uncle, their dragons, Orio - it was all too much for her to bear, the loss of everything and not knowing the fates of the others.

She found herself wandering throughout the rest of her day in a daze, barely registering the greetings that she received as she made her way back to her bag. If anyone noticed her change in character, they said nothing, only solidifying her alienation from the rest of the people on Earth - does that mean that she was an alien now? Oh my Gods, I’m an alien now. Does that mean I’m not human? Does that mean that my insides are different? What if everything about my body is different from what I’ve been told?

The not knowing was worse for her than anything else, and when she finally reached her families’ home, she gathered whatever food she would need for the rest of the night and then sequestered herself in her bedroom, holing herself off from the rest of her family. She needed time to think, and it needed to be alone with no distractions. Despite her mother - or rather, her adoptive mother’s - attempts to lure her out, Willow remained within her room, cuddled under her blanket and buried deeply within her memories and thoughts.

Before she knew it, she was asleep.




Willow yawned as she crossed the kitchen, ignoring the bickering of her brothers and her father’s bellowing voice telling them to keep it down. It was way too early for their shenanigans and she completely agreed with that sentiment. As her hand plucked up a piece of bacon and popped it into her mouth, she felt a warm touch atop her head. When she looked up it was to meet the gentle eyes of her adoptive mother.

”I’m not sure what was bothering you yesterday, but remember not to overdo it, okay? We’ll be proud of you either way.” At that statement it was nearly impossible for Willow to keep her composure, but she somehow managed, fighting off the tears that threatened to escape her eyes and betray her flurry of emotions. Instead, she gave her mother a somewhat strained smile, but one that conveyed her gratefulness and love nonetheless.

”I know. I appreciate it, though.” A muffin was snagged and she was on her toes, pecking a quick kiss on the woman’s cheek, before she stuffed the muffin to be held between her teeth and grabbed up her bag. With that, she was out the door, calling back a muffled, ”Muv moo!” as she scampered off. The crisp morning air hit her skin and instantly brought her fully awake, bringing a slight shiver to the surface. AS she walked, she heard her phone go off with a soft ting and easily removed it from her pocket, studying the email displayed on the cheap screen before her.

After several moments of thought, she shrugged and shoved it back into her pocket. She may as well go, especially if she truly planned to return to Rhindeval and help them free the princes. Even if it weren’t for herself or the other royals, or even their people, she needed to do it for Orion, and the dragons as well.

As was an issue the entire night before, Willow found her mind clouded with endless thoughts of Rhindeval and royalty, dragons and magic. The occasionally memory would surface and frequently brought pangs of pain at the melancholic feeling that was the remembrance of her family and what she once had and had been destined to have. Her training throughout the morning was clearly affected, leaving many of her teammates whispering about her performance, but she really couldn’t possibly care any less. She had far more important things to worry about.

These things were still assaulting her brain as she walked down the street to Professor Lilith’s home. She had little experience in anything deemed ‘magical’, whether real or not, so she doubted that she would be of much help in summoning this mystical fairy queen that Lilith seemed so intent on bringing forth.

Her footsteps brought her up the path to the woman’s house and before she knew it she had almost run into another body - that which belonged to another princess, Artemisia - or was she Althea now? Willow didn’t know, so maybe it would be better to just ask everyone what they preferred to be called? What a pain …

With a small smile - everything had come to affect her chipper personality more than she wished to admit - she waved a little hello to the girl. ”Hello again. I know we haven’t really met before, but I’m Willow. You’re Althea, right? Or would you prefer Artemisia?”

Adrian Wells
Code-#30660C


Adrian sighed in relief as he finished all of the paperwork he had to do. It took him most of the morning to complete it and he was glad when it was over. Now what was he to do? He was officially on break until the queen summoned him again. Maybe he could train in the meantime? Thinking about it, he probably could contact Sir Jiayi for a good spar to see how he held up? That last assignment didn't see that much sword combat, so he might need the practice. And Jiayi was a great swordsman whom Adrian trained with in the past and dueled too. Jiayi might be good natured, but one never should underestimate him. He has bested Adrian many times, but Adrian was a better fighter for it.

Decision made; Adrian was about to write a letter when someone burst through the door. He had his blade ready in hand when he saw it was another messenger.

"Sir Adrian! Your presence is required immediately at the palace for there's been an assassination attempt on the queen. You are to go to the throne room when you get there."

"Good man. Rest your horse before returning to the palace," Adrian ordered before rushing out of the room.

So much for having a break. He went to his stable to grab his fastest horse, a mare named Scarlett. After saddling her up, he immediately took off for the palace.





Ivelda Ever

Code- #003300


Ivelda always took her time getting ready for the day. By the time her advisor came in, Ivelda was, in her eyes, the personification of perfection. She smiled sweetly at Ryder and nodded in greeting.

"I've had a lovely night's rest. I feel rejuvenated! Like I am ten years younger," she laughed.

It was true, but it wasn't because of sleeping well. Ivelda always felt wonderful the day after a sacrifice.

Soon her breakfast had been given to her. Ivelda was a picky eater and demanded perfection from the kitchen staff. The head cook had actually been around since the last rulers and Ivelda made it perfectly clear that if anything poisonous reached her, there be hell to pay. Ivelda herself though couldn't technically die because of poison either. When she made that deal with her master, she gained the ability to 'cheat death' since she had to give him her soul, and it was worth it. There were side effects though. One, she had to keep taking the essence of others to retain her youthful appearance. The other being if she did ingest anything poisonous, it would make her very sick for a time. Also, she had to keep her magic mirror, which held her soul, protected at all costs, because if that was destroyed, she would go straight to hell right then and there. It was located in a secret location no one knew about, except for herself.

Before she could take a bite of her salad though, Ryder instantly threw the fork away. She was about to erupt at him when he quickly explained the situation. Ivelda was rarely surprised but this time she was as her eyes widen open. Only because she realized the irony of the situation and also the fact that she came this close to be poisoned. Ironic since Ryder saved her when she was the one who killed his parents. When she finally came to her senses, Ryder had just finished making orders to bring back some of her servants to the throne room. His actions next amused Ivelda though. She would have smiled but this was a serious situation.

"Calm down, Ryder. Were you the one who hired who made this meal for me? I don't recall that being a job of yours. You will not be punished but rewarded for saving my life. I don't know what that'll be yet, but it'll happen. For now, let's go to the throne room."

Soon Ivelda was in her throne room, awaiting those who'd be called upon.





Haru Otani
Code-#3A0786


The next day, Haru had his early breakfast in his personal sleeping quarters. Some might be surprised, but he didn't always spend his days indoors. For one thing, he actually did practice with his daggers. He didn't want to be like most scholars or alchemists and be weak physically, only relying on their wits and alchemy skills. Lord Chaoxiang taught him that for the man was lethal when it came to the daggers too. Only difference was, Haru never used poison on his blades. Haru wasn't training though, instead he was outside with the Royal Falconer checking on his own birds. He always had an affinity for birds, especially birds of prey and would use them often to send messages. He was checking out his personal favorite, a black hawk named Midnight, when he heard someone call his name. Annoyed, Haru turned to see one of the servants approach him.

"Lord Haru, there's been an assassination attempt on his majesty. She's alright, but you are to report to the throne room immediately," the man said.

Any annoyance Haru felt dissolved to be replaced with concern. Whoever did this atrocity had a definite death wish.

"Very well, I'll be there," he replied.

The servant bowed and left. Handing Midnight to the falconer, Haru wasn't too far behind. He then heard the bells ring and hasten his pace. As he neared the throne room, he saw Alcinder.

"I guess you've been summoned too? I bet you're looking forward to finding this would be assassin, right? Shall we?" he said before opening the doors to the throne room and allowing the white hair man in.

Even though the servant said the queen was fine, he was still relieved to see she was unharmed with his own eyes. He immediately kneels before addressing her.

"Your majesty, I you require my assistance?"

Ivelda nods and says, "Indeed, someone was fool enough to try and slip me a poisonous food into my breakfast this morning. We're summoning the kitchen staff now. What I need for you to do is to identify this poison. Or Alcinder, you can identify it too since I know you've dabbled in poisons before. Ryder do you have the poison with you so they can inspect it? Oh and please stay here after you two identify it, please? Finding this assassin is my number 1 priority at the moment."

Haru nodded and waited for Ryder to give him the poison.

Lilith Evers ~ Aurora Givens ~ Cassie Peters
Codes- #C71585 ~ #5477B9 ~ #46935C


That morning, Aurora went about her normal morning routine of breakfast and working on her homework. She was glad she had no classes today since she was definitely going to Miss Lilith's place. She had several questions she wanted to ask the fairy queen, most important being about Richard and the boys and secondly about her own kingdom. She didn't know when they would be returning to Rhindeval, but she hoped it wasn't going to be too much longer. Now that she remembered where she came from, she was feeling extremely homesick. She guessed it was because she felt like she 'fit' here. Sure, she knew returning would be dangerous, but it was still home for her. First thing first, she had to find a way to convince her adopted family to let her go. She figured she tell them the truth, but not the whole truth. Neither her father nor her brothers would believe her if she told them she wasn't from Earth.

After finishing her homework, she saw she still had time, so she decided to walk around campus for a bit. When she returned to her dorm, she saw her roommate working on her own homework. While not friends, the two did get along. They just had vastly different schedules and did different things so they hardly saw each other.

"Hi, have a nice morning?" the African American young lady said.

"Yes. I am going off campus for a bit. I'll be back after lunch."

"Righto. I have that softball game tonight so don't wait up okay?"[/color]

"Okay, good luck and see you later." Aurora said before getting her purse and leaving the dorm.

She had written down Lilith's address and after looking it up on her cell phone's GPS, she saw that the professor was right about it not being too far.

Once she got there, she saw that she wasn't the first to arrive. Also, when she arrived, Meridian also showed up and Sia and Oriane were already at the front door.

Getting out of her car, Aurora smiled at Meridian.

"I am glad you decided to come Meri. Have you decided whether you're coming back with the rest of us yet?"

Cassie sighed and replied as the two head for the house, "I don't know. I only have one major issue for not wanting to go. Maybe the Fairy Queen can help me make up my mind. I am legit torn, I want to help you stop Ivelda, Lord knows she has it coming, but I have a family and life here too."

Aurora nodded. She wouldn't force the issue, but she does hope Meridian comes back with them. Once they reached the door, Aurora waves at Oriane and Sia.

"Morning," she says a bit shyly.

Lilith was finishing getting things ready when she heard the door knock. Smiling, she opened the door to see most of the princesses there, even Meridian.

"Good morning ladies. I am so relieved you have come. Come on in. I am setting things up in my magic lair. You're early so we got time. Take a seat in the living room. Do you want anything to drink? I got some lemonade or water."

Lilith led them into into her home. The living room was pretty spacious and led right into the massive kitchen.

"You have a lovely home Ms. Evers,"

"Thank you Aurora. It has been a big learning curve adapting to this place, but I've managed. Luckily my own mother believed that you had to be self-sufficient physically, not just magically, so I learned how to make my own food. The means of making food was different, but not completely foreign. Hopefully the rest of the girls will show up."

Aurora and Cassie couldn't imagine having to learn how adapt to a completely new environment as an adult, and Lilith was all alone. Their respect for her just want up.

"Would you girls like something to drink?" Lilith asked once more.

"Lemonade please."

"Same thing please."

Lilith nodded and waited for the rest of the girls to let her know if they wanted anything to drink.

Once they sat down, Aurora immediately spoke up and said, "Ms. Evers, I wanted to talk about my dreamwalking experience with you."

"Why don't you tell the girls here about it before we talk about it. I tend to make my lemonade fresh so this will take a minute."

With that she went into the kitchen. Aurora suddenly felt self-conscious. She wasn't used to be the center of attention.

"Um, it seems I have the ability to walk into other people's dreams. I walked into Ms. Evers' last night. It was one of her memories that had my mother in it. My mother, Queen Selene, her thing was premonition, and she was telling Ms. Evers about one of them. That's all that happened. But Lilith became aware I had dreamwalked into her dream because my aura was showing. I want to know more about dreamwalking. We couldn't really talk about it in the dream. Did anything happen to any of you yet?"

"Nope, not me. I can't even recall yet if anyone in my family had magic abilities, at least on my dad's side."

Lilith overhead that and came into the other room.

"All of the royal families had magic within them. Your father did, Meridian. He had some ability over the earth, especially making the ground rich with nutrients to help things grow better."

"Oh . . . okay."

eloise grace.
dialogue ; #ab9b9d. – thought ; #ed97a5.
Image

Mornings are difficult no matter the day, but somehow it's especially bad this time around. Whether it's the raging headache and nausea from drinking far too much last night, or just because without the alcohol in her system or her friends around to take her mind off things, all she can do is continue wandering back to those old memories she so badly wanted to uncover, yet they do her no good now. She doesn't feel any better, doesn't feel anymore complete, perhaps because the entirety of them were so goddamn unbelievable. A princess from an alternate universe first, what's next, she'd be asked to rule that very kingdom that by no means could even rightfully exist? Since when was there a vast, expansive continent with thousands, if not millions of living people on it, and somehow the entire planet earth had just overlooked it? Or was she going to be asked to walk through some weird portal into fucking Narnia?

She can't help the anger as it continues to boil, though maybe it was made worse by the sour mood caused by none other than the consequences of her very own actions. Dumbass, why'd you have to down so much on your own?

Eloise had hardly confessed about what the new issue was to any of her friends, let alone her parents, if only because she was sure they'd think she was on her way to another mental, emotional breakdown. Tatsuya had listened to her words at least, even if they were vague and a bit nonsensical, listening quietly as he always did with her. She appreciated him and his efforts with her endlessly, of course; even if they fed into each others' bad habits occasionally, he was practically her only reason to keep living at this point, and somehow she felt she might be his.

If she left him behind, would he be okay? Would she be okay without him?

What about her parents?

A long sigh escapes her into that small studio bedroom, her head rolling to the side as hair moves to cover half her face. He was sleeping soundly next to her now, even though it was well past 10:00am and they both should be up and going now. They hadn't actually slept together the night prior, not interested in doing so last night, though he was far to drunk to go home himself and the comfort of proximity and contact was something she hadn't wanted to pass up, even in her hazy state. Still, that email from her English professor rings in her mind again. An address, a time, and given it was already past ten, she would probably be a little late to it by this point if she decided to go.

She almost wanted to, almost didn't. Surely it would be easy to skip, to put behind this god awful experience as some stupid memory and weird manipulation from yet another adult in her life, but at the same time, she wants to go, just to confirm something. Just to make sure, so that she can put her wandering mind to rest for the night. It could just be a quick trip out, and then she could come back and hangout with Tatsuya for the rest of the day, if he were even up for that.

At the very least, those thoughts get her out of bed. Slowly rising up from the sheets even with the throbbing sensation it brings on tenfold, she forces her legs over the side of her bed, letting out a long yawn and standing as she staggers over to her closet. Something easy and comfortable is what she's looking for, maybe a little presentable, but in the end she's pulling out that long-sleeved crop top she tends to enjoy for extra comfort. The sleeves are loose, making it even more comfortable, and paired with those loose, flowing pants, she feels like she's practically wearing pajamas, even with the suspenders adding a little flair while they hold onto absolutely nothing. Pulling on the outfit, she shuts the doors of the closet, perhaps a little too hard, harder than she meant to. They relatch into place with a loud slam, and she cringes before turning to look over at the other student in her bed, who groans once before turning onto his side, blanket pulled over his head.

"...Tatsuya?" Comes her unsure tone, and she winces as his voice rises out, muffled by the sheets, "uh-huh..."

Slowly making her way back over to the bedside, she lets herself half fall into it as she sits, gaze moving back to where he is still, curled under the blankets. "I'm sorry...I didn't mean to shut them so hard." A pause, she pulls the sheet back just a bit to reveal the tuft of white hair and half-lidded brown eyes that grimace away from the invading light of the window. "How're you feeling? Miserable?"

A short snort leaves him at her words, and he lets the sheet fall back to fully reveal his face at least. "What do you think? I drank as much as you did, you know." She smirks slightly at this, "you did, didn't you, brave little boy. We all know I handle alcohol so much better than you, but you just drained it all without a second thought. Now look at you."

"Ah, the consequences of my own actions." He pulls the sheets back over his head then, hiding away in them with a muffled, "fuck you," leaving soon after. All she offers is a sympathetic laugh, patting the head over the sheets before standing back up, her small bag finding its way to her hands as she moves past the nightstand, the dropped violin case to the side. "I'm going out for a bit, just have something to deal with before I can relax for the rest of the day." She pauses at the door to exit her room, looking back at his form in the bed, "I'll bring you back some meds for your head once I'm done, 'kay? Do what you need to get feeling better in the meantime, I probably have enough shit to keep you sated until I'm back home." It's a small peek of a hand from the sheets and a lazy wave that she gets in return, and she rolls her eyes at them before making her way out of the room, and then out of the door.

The day is sunny and calm, once she steps outside, with no clouds to cover the sun and make the light a little more bearable. Her hand rests over her eyes for a moment as she tries to shove away the burst of headache again, but there's nothing she can do about it at this point, besides press on. The sooner this little "meeting" was over with, the better.

It's not as long of a walk as she expected, though she probably should have figured that by Lilith's email; she had said that it was only ten minutes away from campus, and given Eloise practically lived on campus with her apartment, it didn't add much time to it. Genuinely, she was relieved for that fact alone, making her trip just slightly easier on her mind and body.

Coming up on the house, she takes it in quietly, the size and look of it as a whole. She's not even inside yet, and still she can see the fact that it looks like a more spendy, fancy place, something someone wealthy would own. The car in front of it doesn't help that fact, though something tells Eloise that that's not Lilith's. Rather, it likely belonged to one of the other girls that would be attending this odd little gathering along with her. Who were the rich girls in this little group, anyway? She got the vibe from Liliya at least, maybe Althea but-

There's the sound of someone trudging behind her, lazy steps and quiet sniffling that catches her off guard a bit. A quick shift around and she's facing Liliya herself, pink hair done in an overly lazy bun and wearing not quite as much makeup as Eloise was sure she normally would. Even the outfit shows off signs of exhaustion, despite being in character and cutesy as she knew the girl was known for.

Tilting her head slightly, she watches Liliya for a moment, the girl seeming to be in a world of her own before she carefully calls out to her, an awkward, "Liliya? Girl, you alright?" Her voice seems to snap the other out of her trance then, green-blue eyes snapping over to her before she's using the bottom of her palm to rub under her eyes, slightly smearing the eyeliner that was barely holding anyway. "Mm...sorry, I wasn't...I wasn't paying attention. Hi, Elo...Euphemia..."

She can't help but wince slightly at the name, glancing away, before taking a few steps forward and pulling out a simple cloth. A hand cups her face for a bit before she's rubbing away at the smeared black makeup, small sigh leaving her. Clearly, the pink bomb hadn't been faring too well, and she wasn't going to try and make it worse now. Even if it seemed to catch her by surprise, the way her eyes widened a bit before settling into something more neutral, if not a bit depressed. "I probably look gross, don't I?"

Eloise half snorts at her words, rolling her eyes lightly, "sure you do, but I'm still half hungover, so it's not like I can say much about it." Pulling back then, she tilted her head slightly, "all good now, take a breather or something and then we can go in together I guess." Truthfully, she feels too awkward to go in alone, and maybe following behind the literal model would help keep attention off of herself for awhile.

"No, I'm okay. Let's just go in now, we're already late, aren't we?" A quick glance to her wrist, Eloise cranes her neck slightly to catch the digital time on the face of it, 10:45. She cringes slightly at that revelation, before turning towards the door again, a long sigh leaving her. "You're right, it's probably in our best interest to avoid making anyone wait around any longer." As if walking in late won't be awkward enough as it is.

Quiet settles in as they walk to the door, and as Liliya settles back into her half daze, she decides to take one for the impromptu team and knock for the both of them, a bit lightly as if that would make their late appearance any better.

Content Warning.

The first sight she'd been greeted with once she arrived back to her apartment was Galen laying out on the couch in her living room, lazily scrolling through his phone and long since changed and undone out of his costume from the fair. By all means, the moment he looked up at her when he realized she was there, his expression twisted into one of irritation, frustration, seemingly not noticing the emotional state she was in, or didn't care enough to acknowledge it. Instead, a long sigh, standing up from the couch and making his way over to her.

"The hell happened to you? Look at your dress, it's filthy." His hand moves down to tug at the skirt of the dress, pulling it up slightly as if the show off the stain of dirt over the green fabric. She stared for a moment, just long enough that it finally got him to let go and walk away, towards the bedroom. She followed quietly, energy to even try and speak zapped, gone after all the revelations from Lilith. She couldn't even tell Galen about it, as if he'd believe her. He was already in a sour mood, clearly, and she wasn't keen on making it worse.

Why was he mad anyway, though? Sure, she was later than expected, but it wasn't that bad. Rather, she would have expected him to try and offer some sort of comfort at the sight of her, at the state she was in, but instead he's lazily dropping onto the queen bed in her bedroom, staring at his phone still as she makes way for the bathroom, a single glance back to where his back is turned to her, unacknowledging. Her lips purse at that, and she quietly shuts the door. The shower is her destination, and as she finally gets the dress off and lets it drop into a dirty heap on the floor, the water is turned on. Just a few moments until it heats up, and then she's in, letting the water wash over her body and get rid of the grime and exhaustion, at least a little bit.

It felt odd, the way her mind was beginning to just go numb. She wasn't quite used to this feeling, the loss of energy, but not from using it on work or something fun; rather, it was from raging emotions and thoughts, from the revelation of the century in her memories, the way a sense of despair clung to her, refused to let go. Suddenly, she realizes she feels entirely too alone. No one to turn to, no one to lean on. No one would believe her, would they? And the other girls, Lilith...somehow, she felt as if she couldn't even reach out to them. Isolated, or at least that's how her mind wanted her to feel, and she fed into it, believed it.

Eventually she feels washed enough, relaxed enough, and the water is off, steam rising into the air and to the ceiling, escaping through the fan that she'd almost forgotten to turn on. It's a towel that she wraps around herself, wringing out her hair and brushing it out so that at least it wasn't sopping, brushing it out a moment later and ignoring the small spray of droplets it left behind over the countertop. Numb, empty, tired. Or maybe her mind was just still trying to process things, stuck in a standstill over such unbelievable fantasy memories she has bouncing around her head now. It was impossible, but at the same time she knew they were all real.

She doesn't even notice Galen as she steps out of the bathroom, who sits up in bed now with his arms crossed, silently watching her as she crosses the room to her closet and dresser, tries to find something comfortable and warm to wear and soothe her to sleep. In the end it's just a pair of shorts, an oversized hoodie that she dons, and she moves to sit on the opposite side of the bed to her boyfriend, laying on her side and not even caring enough to get under the covers despite the chill of wet hair. She would in a moment, but this felt good enough for now.

Quiet settles in for a bit before she feels the bed shift under weight before the shadow of Galen looms over her, and then lowering closer, until his hand is wrapping around her waist, and a kiss is pressed into her neck. Soft and gentle, and initially she thinks he's finally trying to offer some sort of comfort, but maybe she should have known better. His hand moves down further, until it's pulling up her shirt, reaching under as he tries to shift her further back onto the bed, tries to get better access to her.

"Gale, no..." Is all she mutters at first, hand moving to gently press against his hand, "I'm not up for that tonight, please. I just wanna sleep."

It certainly doesn't stop him, though, not as he shrugs off the hand and pulls her back onto the bed, flat onto her back as he starts to pull off his shirt, a grumbled, "you said you would, are you seriously going to backtrack that now?" and she goes wide eyed for a moment. He wasn't going to listen? What was he even thinking, acting like this? She'd said no so he should-

He's half laying down on top of her now, still searching her neck before she manages another weak, "stop it, Gale," yet he doesn't, still feels around, still puts his unbearable weight over her as if to trap her and then-

It's a shocked yelp that leaves her lips as his teeth dig into her neck, not hard enough to break the skin or draw blood, but it may as well have. It sends a shock through her body, and her eyes finally prick with tears again before she lets out a small sniffle, and then finally, her hands place themselves onto his chest, and she shoves.

"I said no, Galen! Get off of me!"

Perhaps she shoves a bit too hard, more strength behind the push than she was expecting, because right as her words leave her mouth, she hears a thud, sees him sprawled over the floor on the side of the bed, and her eyes go wide at the sight. Panic springs in her chest, more so as he turns back around, and the slightest trickle of blood seeps from his nose. Had he really hit the ground that hard? Or maybe it was just an unlucky enough landing?

"A-ah- oh- I'm so sorry- I didn't mean to-"

"...The hell...?" Is all that leaves him for a bit, and she winces, whimpers away from the dark tone it holds, "are you fucking kidding me...?" Amber eyes move to look up at her then, and his brows furrow down further, rage clearly taking its hold as he stands, uses a hand to gingerly wipe some of the blood away, and then stares at it. Stares for far too long, as his expression shifts further and further, until suddenly he raises his hand, extended out and she's almost tensing up to be slapped, eyes going wide in shock as it descends, strikes her across the face sharper than she could have ever believed. As if she could even believe the fact that he had hit her at all.

They hadn't even been dating for that long; had she been so blinded and desperate for another relationship after how the other one had ended that she'd entirely missed a red flag like this?

Her breathing picks up in pace a bit, something of a hyperventilation as she tries to process what just happened, the fact that her face still stung and her neck was burning. Suddenly, everything about the one standing in front of her is terrifying, and she can't make herself look up, can't bring her eyes to connect with his as he seethes down at her, though she catches the slightest glimpse of a sneer, and she locks up again.

"I should have listened when they told me you were more trouble than you were worth," he hisses, leaning in closer as she flinches back, trembles slightly over the situation, the reveal of his true nature so soon, the fact that she felt trapped, like she couldn't run for her life as she should be now. Couldn't move, she couldn't- "it hasn't even been that long, and I've already had enough of your bullshit. Why won't you just do as I say? Listen? My ex always did, why won't you?" Her hands move up her head, hiding beneath them ever so slightly as she tries to shrink in on herself, "you're such a bitch, how could anyone put up with you any longer than I have? Ha! There's absolutely no way anyone else could!" That anger again, and she sees his hand raise once more out of the corner of her eye. They go wide again before she shrinks, cowers away and shields herself. Yet, rather than a slap, she hears the heavy footsteps, someone intercepting, and then silence, perhaps shocked.

When she opens her eyes again, it's Mathias who stands in front of her, gloved hand wrapped tightly around the wrist, while blue eyes pierce into those of Galen, who has considerably paled in comparison to before, his sneer turned into one of panic and terror at the sight of the man in front of him. The same panic that pulls him into some sort of state, one that leaves him stumbling and stammering for words, and suddenly he's not so terrifying anymore.

"A-ah- woah, wait- it's not what it looks like, I-I can explain!" Comes his lame excuse of a way to get out of the trouble he'd caused himself. Yet his pleas are met with a look of such malice from Mathias, that silently Liliya wonders if he'll kill Galen right then and there. "Oh no, no no, I think it's exactly what it looks like, Galen," The venom that drips from his tongue fills the room in an instant, and Galen stops breathing...until a sickening crack makes its way into the silence, and he falls to his knees in agony before his wrist is released. Broken.

He's letting out cries of pain for awhile, though neither her nor Mathias move as they watch him. Her, in shock, Mathias, detached and cold. "If you know what's best for you and your life, I'd suggest running away now." Comes his sharp hiss, and Galen's amber eyes are up on him, nothing but fear, horror, before he's running out of the apartment, the door swung open and slammed shut behind him as he does. Silence, again, until she feels the tears burn her eyes once more, and finally she lets herself break down, sobs wracking through her body as her brother turns towards her, expression softening swiftly before she's wrapped in a hug, tight and secure. "Oh my god, Lily...I'm so sorry...I should have come sooner."

His comforts are offered for several hours as they sit together, as she tries to stop the flow of emotions that come so swiftly and won't stop, and he simply nods along, hums occasionally to let her know he's still listening as she stumbles through her words, tries to explain, tries to even make sense of anything.

Of anything, when nothing made sense at all, and she felt like she was dying, drowning.

She can't quite will herself to speak about the memories, instead drowning them out with other words, but eventually she wears herself out enough to sleep, and crashes in the bed. It's Mathias that treats the new bruise and bite, tries to relieve some of the pain and get rid of the worst of the swelling, and she's silently thankful for his help when she hardly has the will to do it herself. It's considerably better by the time she looks at the clock, by the time she realizes that she still needed to meet up with those other girls and Lilith, even when she didn't have the energy to do so now. Why couldn't she have had a couple days to rest? To try and process everything?

Shove them down, she supposes, because whatever her English professor - or, the sorceress - had wanted to show them, she didn't want to miss. Maybe it would help settle worries, stress, concerns. Just a little bit, to take some of the weight off her shoulders.

Mathias doesn't seem thrilled when she says she needs to go out for the day. It's furrowed brows, worry and concern seeping into the expression deeply as she shows herself in the lazy outfit that covers the mark on her neck at least. The one on her face is covered with makeup as best she can, and frankly, the rest of her makeup job is shoddy and miserable at best. Did she particularly care? No, it was just to cover up puffy eyes, a bruise, and exhaustion.

"You should really stay home and rest. Is there something you need picked up? Or dropped off? I can do it for you, you know. Why don't you just go back to bed? I was just about to start making lunch, too." All manners of coaxing, but she just shakes her head, looks towards the door again, "I won't be long, I just needed to stop somewhere quick. I'll be back in a couple hours at most." Another frown from him, his arms crossing, before a huff leaves him. In the end, he lets her go, perhaps not up to the idea of accidentally causing her more stress that way. "Just call me if you need something, okay?"

Out the door she goes, into the clear, sunny day, and she wanders down the street at a dragging pace, only half paying attention to where she's going as she walks. In and out of her mind, in and out of reality. It's hard to stay in reality, but she does her best. And fails miserably, given she almost doesn't realize she's made it to Lilith's home until an unsure voice calls out to her from her side. Her eyes snap over to the figure of Eloise- Euphemia, shortly after, and she stares for a moment before relaxing again, her shoulders drooping forward as her hand moves up to rub at her eyes. "Mm...sorry, I wasn't...I wasn't paying attention. Hi, Elo...Euphemia..." The older woman flinches slightly as she calls the latter name, and Liliya wonders if that was the wrong choice, elects to not use it again in the future.

Silence falls for a bit, and quietly she thinks of her appearance, grimacing slightly to herself before shifting awkwardly, looking away, but the black haired girl is approaching her soon after, and before she can even process what she's doing, a gentle hand cups her face, luckily not on the side of the bruise, while the other moves up to carefully wipe away around her eyes. She blinks once, tries to figure out the reason, but then gives up and averts her gaze again, a weak, "I probably look gross, don't I?" leaving her.

Eloise's sarcastic snort almost makes her flinch back, and her words enter her ears and sit for a bit as she speaks. Acknowledging that she didn't look great, but offering the fact that Eloise herself didn't look all too nice either. It was a little comforting, knowing she wasn't the only one struggling, in pain.

It's awkwardly exchanged words before they finally make their way up to the steps, and she can't help but fall into a daze again as they do, staring at the wooden object as Eloise knocks, and then it's just a waiting game.
