TEMPERAMENT





Image

"I try my best to be the most positive person . . ."

→Likes:
Equality | Animals | Outdoors | "Cookie"

✔ Equality ✔
She wants everybody to get along in this world, despite what they may look, sound, or be like. Nobody deserves to be hurt, even if they have hurt others themselves, even if she doesn't show it in the most tasteful ways.

✔ Animals ✔
She loves animals because she sees how unconditional their love is for their other kind. She knows that they care about each other and wishes that humans could do the same.

✔ Outdoors ✔
She loves the sun as it makes her feel warm and calm. She can't stand being indoors for too long, as it reminds her of how lonely she is.

✔ "Cookie" ✔
Cookie is her purple stuffed elephant, with a top hat, and the one reminder that her parents do, in fact, care. Despite loving it dearly, she hides it somewhere where nobody could find it, as she thinks it's embarrassing when somebody does find it. It has a pull on the back, and when you pull it, it plays a recording of her father, repeating "I love you, please forgive me."

". . . But these things just get on my nerves."

→Dislikes/Fears:
Slavery | Being Alone | Small, Dark Spaces | Bullies

✖ Slavery ✖
She hates the mistreatment of others that are of lower social standings then them. She is saddened by the fact people are dying out in third world counties (and first world), and she can not do a single thing about it.

✖ Being Alone✖
She hates being isolated because the more she stays quiet, the more she thinks about her past of being alone. The silence is the most depressing thing to Cindy, as being alone gives her that feeling of emptiness.

✖ Small, Dark Places✖
Cindy has heavy Claustrophobia, and it gets even worse when she is in the dark. Even after a few days of not being outside, it drives her to insanity. Natural light is the warmest thing in her world at this point, and she needs to have it.

✖ Bullies ✖
Although she hasn't had many bullies in her life (they know shes strong enough to handle them) she hates seeing others getting affected by bullies, so when there is bullying seen, she usually stands up for what's right.

→Power:
She has the ability to make inanimate objects come to life. Usually very unstable, and it may happen uncontrollably if she is flustered or mad. She recently found out that she can make them shape into an animal if she thinks about an animal, as shown by Bed-Bird and Mattress-Bird. Mattress-Bird is based off of a white Dove, while Bed-Bird is a black Crow.

Personality:

Cindy has a keen sense of justice; she's optimistic and ambitious, always hoping for a better world, even if in her heart she knows that this world is not going to get any better. She stands up for what she thinks is right, even if it is not right. But, this can be seen as compulsive, because, well, she is a compulsive person. She's the kind of person to say things without thinking, and leaping without looking. This can get her into trouble at times. A LOT of trouble. But, being the charismatic person she is, she usually finds away out of trouble by finding a solution. That doesn't mean that she doesn't worry about things. She has a hard time forgetting all the bad things that has happened to her, especially if she had hurt someone else, or if she was a big part of it. This has made her very humble when it comes to good things though, because when it is usually good, she remembers the not-so-good.

Academically, she is brilliant at English, History, Art and Drama, but this has made her mediocre at everything else, including Science, Geography and Math, however that is not a big deal as she still passes with flying colours. She is a well organised and a high achieving student, from being class president to even a community award for all of her hours in the local nursing home. But, because of this, she is usually stressing out a lot, trying to get consistent perfect marks every time. However, she feels it is worth it in order for her parents to notice her, which seems not to work most of the time. She is a more hands on kind of person, then a logical one. However, when it requires her to, she is able to think outside the box.

Cindy found out about her powers only very recently, after she made a very old doll of hers called "Cookie" come to life. Cookie had emotions, and feelings, and love for Cindy. Cookie was alive for a few moments before he fell to the ground. Cindy didn't know what happened, but she knew that it was going to change her, for better, or for worse.

History:

[WIP]

Cindy is the youngest daughter of Tina and Cain Mayes; two of the most famous entrepreneurs, owning multiple famous landmarks in the U.S. She had one other sister, her older sister Alyssa. Alyssa was much older then Cindy, so they usually didn't play together. In fact, they stayed as far away as possible. They were two different people that naturally did not get along well. Cindy, being the energetic and happy one, Alyssa was the much more reserved and quiet one (at least, as a child. Since she started drinking, she has never been the same. Cindy always played outside all by herself. In Elementary school, Cindy and Alyssa were privately home schooled by a private tutor. Cindy didn't care too much for this, as she wanted to go to a normal school and make some friends.

Cindy's mother and father were very distant from both of their children due to work, as they both had busy schedules, and meetings that could last until the late hours of the night. Cindy and Alyssa grew up without parents. They were a broken family, and they grew up as one. Tina and Cain, they were two different people. They had different plans from eachother, Tina only thought of the money, while Cain thought of the community, and how it could be a better place by investing in places like empty lots for parks, or retirement villages for the elderly. It was only a matter of time before they started to tear apart. They were falling apart, and everyone could see it, even the press. So it wasn't a big surprise when they filed a divorce 16 months after their first fight. They just couldn't make it work. Alyssa was old enough to understand, but Cindy, still being a child, was very hurt and shocked that they would come to this conclusion. She went up to her room, crying.

It was a long custody battle. It was both the children's decisions, and they went their seperate ways, Cindy going with Cain, and Tina going with Alyssa. They usually only met once or twice a month, but neither did care for the other, so it was a silent, and distance meeting with only a hello, and a goodbye. After a few years, Tina eventually moved on and married a much younger man who was rich, and met her needs. However, Cain stayed single, as he had no time for dating, as he had big plans for the future. Cindy now went to a public school, and although she really liked it, she still remained alone at home. Cindy asked her dad with a white smile

"Dad, do you want to play outside?"

"I'm too busy, Cindy. Go on without me. I'm sorry. Let's play tomorrow."

Cindy nodded sadly, as she went outside to go play outside. This was a daily routine, as Cindy continued to play outside everyday. Until, the day when Cain smiles at her and said:

"Lets go somewhere special. I've got a surprise for you." He smiled, patting her on the head.

They got in the car and drove into the city. Cindy smiled stupidly, as she could barely contain her excitement. They stopped at the new zoo in the city, parking the car in a personal car park for his car.

"This is why I was so busy, Cindy. It was the biggest investment of my life, and I wanted to share it with you. I have one more thing to give you." From underneath the car seat, he took out a purple elephant, that had a top hat on. It was beautiful. It's eyes were Jet Black buttons, sowed on neatly onto it's face, and the top hat had a red ribbon. She hugged the elephant, and gave it a small kiss on the trunk. Its' tail was soft wool, while the rest of it was expensive felt. It was gorgeous, and most importantly, it was made with love.

Her dad got out of the car, and opened the door for her, smiling as she got out of the car. Hand holding hand, they went into the zoo and spent all the day there. It seemed like minutes they were there, as the sun descended in the sky. Everyone was leaving, so they decided to do the same. Driving home was a nightmare. The road to home was already extremely dark. They kept driving along the road though. It was then, a raccoon ran onto the road! Cain turned right, trying to avoid the raccoon, but because it was on a hill they tumbled off, rolling the car multiple times before stopping at a tree. Cindy's leg was caught by the seat adjuster beneath her feet, while her dad banged his head multiple times on the wheel. He fainted, probably from shock. His head was bleeding a lot of blood. she was trapped in this position until help arrived. Help arrived at 11pm, as they needed a crane to get them in an upright position. Cain was driven off to the emergency room, while Cindy was fast asleep, so a policeman offered to drive her home.

"I'm home."

She said, sighing with loneliness. She knew that nobody would be home. Her mother and step father are on a cruise, and her sister is always out drinking at 6pm. To her surprise, she heard an answer, but not from the people she wanted to hear it from.

"We're taking you to the school now. Have you got your things?"

Cindy nodded, replying with calmness. "My luggage is upstairs in my room. I shall get it."

Cindy walked upstairs, and turned left into her room. It was small, but it was cozy. Cindy looked down at her luggage, sighing with sadness. Am I really abnormal? she thought to herself. She looked out the window, and for the first time in her life, she had actually thought about running away from her problems. But, she knew that they would only catch up to her.

"What's the holdup?"

"My apologies! I was simply saying goodbye to my room..."

She was going to miss this room, she loved it with a passion. She dragged her luggage along, it rolling quietly along the floorboards. She met eyes with the men in black.

"I hope you understand that just because I have powers, I am not dangerous to society." She spoke with anger to the men, which is not like her.

She felt anger for the government, these people who agreed to this. She felt so mad, that the salt shake starting moving around the table uncontrollably!

"What the hell are you doing?! Make it stop!" The men shouted at her

She tried her best to stop the salt shake, but she wasn't able to, no matter how hard she tried. It went on for a while, until one of the men pulled out a gun and shot the salt shake, "killing" it.

"We need to go now." They dragged her along by the arm. She tried kicking them off, but it was useless, as they took her to the car to drive her off to the school, or to her, a prison for the innocent.

She looked back at her house, as it disappeared in the distance.

Cindy Mayes
"I don't care if you tell me this is a school, there is no way there are schools that look like this. This is a prison."

Image






Cindy blinked herself out of her sleep state, awaking to the sound of the quiet, purring engine outside. She stretched out her limbs; well, to an extent. She was still in the SUV, as they were still driving to the academy. She looked out the window, to see an endless stretch of desert, with scattered dead bushes and cacti. She could see there was no wind, or footprints, just the never ending desert that surrounded the SUV on both sides.

We were probably near the heart, if this isn't the heart of the desert. But which desert is this? We could be anywhere in the world right now... Well, except maybe Antarctica, despite it having the biggest deserts.

She thought about the area she was in. There were no distinct areas in this desert, other then the fact that the sand is more of a yellow-white, instead of the usual yellow. It wasn't much, but she could cross out multiple areas, for example, the Australian outback or the colder parts in Europe. She pondered quite a few things on this journey, the littlest things. She didn't bother asking, though. She knew that they weren't worth her time. They took a sharp turn to the left, as the SUV skid in the sand. Cindy was slightly startled by it, however she manage to keep quiet.

"You've been surprisingly quiet this trip." One of the men spoke up, knowing that she was awake.

"Well, I don't have much to say to you, to be honest. You took me from my home to be imprisoned in a school for people like me. We deserve every right every other high-schooler has. So why are we going to a school that's away from society? From the world?" She grew annoyed. She didn't want an excuse, she wanted an explanation or an answer.

"Because, if something bad happened, we do not want people suffering because of one mistake." She could hear it in that mans voice. He was making up an excuse. There was no harm in me, or anyone else with powers.

"What am I going to do? Bring a Barbie doll to life?"

"I'm sorry! I can't help you, just please... Try to understand." The man said with despair, as the other man glared at him with an evil eye.

Cindy stopped asking questions. There was no point anymore, she wasn't going to get any straight answers. She knew that both of them knew what was going on, and even felt guilty about it. But for what reason? She shuddered, thinking of the possibilities. The worst part is, that the government is probably behind all of this. She looked out the front window, seeing a tiny black speck in the distance. She sighed; it was probably the school. Not a very good sign if it's that dark. The car got closer to the speck, revealing a prison-like building, with a fence perimeter. It was dark, and gloomy.

"You've got to be kidding me. This is the school? I knew it was going to be a prison, but I didn't think it would literally be a prison." She mumbled to herself in disgust.

The gates creaked, as they opened to the black SUV. The car had stopped, as the men got out of the SUV. Cindy was the last to get out of the air conditioned SUV. It was extremely hot, Well over 40 degrees (about 120 Farenheit) which got her sweating in a matter of minutes.

"I'm home," She mumbled to herself. She could see a few people were here, but they were too busy carrying their bags inside. She decided to do the same.

Cindy Mayes
"I hate these dorms."

Image






Cindy walked through the doors to the check in. The room, while cool, was eerily dark, dimly lighted, with little to no natural light. The air was dusty, and not the good smelling kind of dust that is on old, vintage books. She was shocked that the state of this room is so horrible. She coughed lightly, going over to the counter, where a woman was sitting. She seemed slightly unpleasant, as if she didn't want to be here. I guess that makes two of us.

"Hello. My name is Cindy Mayes."

"Oh, yeah. Let me sign you in." She typed a few keys on the keyboard, looking up at the monitor. She clicked a few options, and looked back at Cindy.

"There. Welcome to the Academy. Here's your key, and your number is A113"

The receptionist grinned a yellow-toothed smile, and continued typing on the computer. Cindy, clenching onto the key, put it in her pocket, and decided that instead of going in her room immediately, she would instead meet some new people. She knew that she would be here a long time, so it would be much better to make friends instead of stay alone in this place. She opened the doors back out to the heat. She found it much better then the inside's cramped rooms, and dusty air. She took off her cardigan, revealing a white babydoll shirt. She placed her cardigan on the sand to stop her bottom from getting burnt, as she watched as the cars came rolling by one by one. Some people came in SUVs, she heard that a few others before her came in police cars! She didn't care too much how they came, they knew that they all had the same fate. Being kept here until they can use their powers properly. She sighed. In my case, I'll be here forever. She thought to herself. She knew that her skills with her powers weren't very good, so she needs to work harder on controlling it. She decided to go over to a few of the people in the cars. She walked over to a particular person with blond hair, and still wearing a jacket in this weather. She had no real reason to do so, but she did it anyway.

"Um, Hi! I'm Cindy. Nice to meet you. Sorry if I'm being too... Well, perky. I guess I needed friends while I'm in hell." She smiled, as she looked at him.

Michael was lead through the front doors of the "School" with two of the three men that had brought him there carrying his ample suitcases. He let out a breath, softly as he looked around the entrance with great displeasure. Bland. The whole place was bland, hardly any decor and with little to show that people would be living there and learning. Michael did see a few others a dark haired girl was lead back to the rooms. Michael smiled warmly in her direction in hopes of at least establishing an aquaintance.

Restlessness took grip over Michael as the woman behind the desk went on about rules that Michael was sure not to follow. His honey gold eyes roamed anywhere but at her hoping to get a grasp on what the other students where to be like. His only experience at a school with others was at highschool. He assumed it would be similar the only major difference being they'd be dorm mates as well. Michael blushed slightly at the thought. Everyone knew the shenanigans that teens and young adults got into when not under strict supervision. He was reminded though of the reason they where all there as he brushed a small white downy feather from his sleeve. They all had powers there. His curiosity increased as he thought of the possibility of meeting others with very different and maybe even similar abilities as his own.

"Did you hear me, young man? Your room is 115A"

Michael blinked and nodded, then he leaned his elbow on the desk. "Am I going to have roomates? I don't do well with people who snore or have bad body odor. So.....if someone comes in and you think they might maybe have one of those..."

"The bedding arrangements are permanent, Mr. Haddock." The woman said, quite unimpressed.

Michael exhaled. "Right.....ooook. To Room 115A"

The two men looked at each other and put Michael's bags on the floor. "We've got other students to pick up."
With that they turned and walked back out the doors, one of them chuckling audibly and shaking his head.

"Great. Sure. Thanks....I DON'T BELIEVE YOU!" Michael called after them. He huffed, again and took up his backpack, putting it over his shoulders before gathering the two heavy suitcases in both slender arms. He grunted and trembled before heading down the hall muttering about the ridiculousness of it all.

It seemed the rooms where arranged like in a hotel with all the 100 rooms on the first floor of the dorm wing . Michael passed all the rooms that came before 115, struggling with his heavy bags as he went. "This better be good. So far this place seems little more than a glorified....prison..."

Michael stood before his room. He looked either way down the hall at the others just getting situated.

Cindy Mayes
"Let's make some new friends!"

Image




"Hey! Why are you out here?! Get back inside!" A guard yelled out from inside. Cindy sighed, as she got her cardigan from the ground and went back inside.

"Um, I'll see you later, possibly!" yelled out to him, waving goodbye. She shut the doors, blinking several times to get used to the dark. She got her luggage and walked up the stairs, to see a corridor lined with cell doors, each with keys and a number. "A113... it should be on the left hand side..." She mumbled to herself quietly, almost inaudible to anyone else. She opened the door, to see a small, cramped room with two beds, two dressers and a small window. To the left of the room was a door to a bathroom. She looked at this place with shock. "It's so tiny! How do I move? How do I walk?! The only good thing about this room is that the walls are soundproof! My bath was bigger then this!" She felt like she could burst into tears, until she had an idea.

She got up and looked at the smaller of the two beds, measuring it with her eyes. She think it will fit through the door. She focuses all of her mind of moving the bed outside the dorm. She focuses all of her power into this one movement, and the bed slowly moves out of the room, taking one step at a time. It was working quite well, until Cindy heard the sound of a bird, and started thinking about the bird species of that bird. She started to lose focus, and the mattress shrank and started flying around the dormitory, mimicking the sounds of the bird! The bed itself turned itself into a different kind of bird, she could tell by the sound it made.

Oh my gosh! That's never happened before... At least I have more space. I'm okay with this. If the mattress shrinks, it shrinks. At least it's out of the way. It will eventually turn back into a bed, so the school won't even know what happened. She thought to herself. She stretched, and went on her way. The mattress and the bed perched on her shoulders, cooing at her like she was her mother, because she kind of is. She decided to go to the mess hall, as lunch was being served.

She looks around the mess hall. She gets her food and starts looking for people to sit with. She decided to sit with two other people.

"Hello, is it okay if I sit here? I'm Cindy Mayes..." She said to both of them, smiling cheerfully.

The bird on Utrien's head climbed down and walked over to Cindy. Utrien's smile become inviting. "It looks like Ezra likes you. If Ezra trust you, i might just have to."

Rayne looked over the new girl walking up, she looked rather young,

"Hello, is it okay if I sit here? I'm Cindy Mayes..."
She listened ot the girl speak and replied,"I am Rayne, Nice to meet you." She smiled as the bird landed on her, and listened as Utriene spoke. The girl was rather pretty, she noticed as she studied her further. She hadn't noticed it when she had walked up.
"How old are you, if you don't mind my asking" She seemed around 13 a few years younger than her.
But you never knew anymore, people never looked their age.

She sat at her desk, black hair over her shoulders, a phone to her ear,
"Yes. The little bastards are all here. We have the gate locked, of course, and all security measures have been put into place."
She spoke to someone on the other line, brown eyes staring at the records of all the children currently on the phone.
"Yes sir. All have been documented, and more are due to arrive tomorrow and the next. Yes sir. Goodbye sir."
She hung up the phone and stood, walking out the door into the hallway, he pointy black heels making a loud Click...Click...Click...
She wore a black pencil skirt and a white blouse, with a dark blood-red vest. She glared as she walked down, she hated wretched snot-nosed little brats. Their whining and partying, their sneaking out and graffiti... Everything about them was absolutely disgusting. She walked into the cafeteria, glaring at every student that looked her way. She made it to the center, and stood there, observing everyone. Looking through the sea of faces.

Cindy Rayne
"This is getting hectic..."




"I am Rayne, Nice to meet you." The girl replied nicely to her. She was very kind, as she had a sincere smile upon her face. The Mattress-bird landed on Cindy's shoulder, rubbing its soft face on her cheek. When she spoke, she had a kind of electrifying kind of way of speaking.
"How old are you, if you don't mind my asking?" She smiled at her.

"Oh yes! I'm 16, I don't mind my child-like appearance though. I'll grow up eventually." She laughed at herself, picking at the food that she was 100% sure it wasn't actually edible for humans. Bed-Bird liked pecking at the sponge-like jelly, though.

She looked at the opening doors of the Mess hall, opened by a woman, formally dressed in a pencil skirt, and a dress shirt. She was beautiful, but she could sense that she wasn't the nicest of people. She had this... Aura around her. A boy was challenging her, which slightly irked Cindy, as the woman had done nothing but walk into the Mess Hall. She continued to watch from a distance. She thought about getting involved, as it was getting out of hand. The Mattress-bird started chirping quietly on her shoulder. Rayne got out of her seat, and started talking to the boy as if she knew him. She probably did, but Cindy isn't going to listen in anymore. She knew that if any more people got involved, the guards would have to get involved with this, so she decided to ignore this, and carry on with talking.

She smiled to the boy with the blonde hair, shrugging off the drama going on in the middle of the room.

#, as written by alitura
She was in the corridor leading to the Mess hall when Maya Heard the commotion inside. She ran towards the door and slipped in to the side of the people. Rather than get involved, she watched the showdown from the side. She saw a tall, intimidating boy challenging a pretty formally dressed woman. From what she got her name was Agatha and she was in charge of them. The boy was making a big deal about becoming masters and rising up. Maya didn’t really understand why anyone would be against the people who were here to help them. Sure their methods weren’t the greatest and the building wasn’t very friendly but the woman didn’t seem at fault for all this.

Other students also watched and some ignored it, except one girl who confronted the boy. It took a lot of self control from Maya not to shout something like “You go!” as the brave girl stood up to him and pointed out his wrongs. Then again she hoped they’d all stop fighting as soon as possible. Having such a tense atmosphere could cause problems. Maya was sure if everyone just got along the experience of being locked up here would be a lot more enjoyable. For now all she could do was wait to see how things played out.

Her stomach grumbled and the girl decided to forget the drama for a second. She got something resembling food from a lady in a very foul mood. At this point she was too hungry to care about its content and looked for a place to sit. She looked for a place to sit and spotted a cute girl and a kind looking blonde boy. “Hi! I hope I’m not disturbing your conversation, could I sit with you two?,” she smiled at them, “Things sure are lively around here ,right?”

"Meeting people is a great feeling."





She looked down at her 'food', losing her appetite. Is that... fur? She thought to herself. She took a sip from her water, not the most refreshing drink she's ever had, but it did quench her thirst. A girl walked up to them, smiling with sincerity.
"Hi! I hope I'm not disturbing your conversation, could I sit down with you two?"

Cindy smiled at the girl, and replied with warmness. "Oh, you're not disturbing anything! Take a seat. We're all friends here."

"Things sure are lively around here, right?" Cindy laughed, and nodded at her statement. She looked at the crowd surrounding all of them, and looked back at her.

"Tell me about it, it's the first day of being here and people are already causing some trouble. Oh, and also, my name is Cindy Mayes." She stretched out her arms, yawning. Despite this room being quite large, she still had to be outside. Her claustrophobia is going to get her in serious trouble.

"Now, if you want my opinion on the food at lunch, majority of it is inedible, but the salad is somewhat fresh... Oh, and this jelly thing is fun to jiggle around, as shown by my Bed-Bird." She signalled to the bird poking the jelly-mixture with it's beak.

"Don't ask why I named it Bed-Bird, it's a long story. So how about you? What's your name, friend?"

The girl smiled back at her and Maya let out a sigh of relief. She seemed like a lovely person and Maya felt happy that there were welcoming people in the academy. So far she had only met people who were hard to approach but Cindy and her companion seemed pretty nice. She sat down beside the girl.

Her new friend yawned and Maya wondered if the trip here made the girl as tired as she was. She guessed most people didn’t fall asleep the second they came, unlike herself. Maya looked down at her food as Cindy began to describe it. She was right, the food wasn’t the best but it didn’t bother her too much. With a little concentration she made it look, smell and taste like a nice homemade lunch. It was a shortcut she used with any food she disliked. Of course the food was still the unhealthy mush but as long as the illusion stayed up the worst thing that could happen was a sore stomach. Maya raised her fork and took a bite.

“I’m Maya! It’s a pleasure to meet you. The bird is very cute. I’ve only seen one at the zoo before but it looks a lot more majestic up close.” She looked as the so called Bed-Bird and giggled. It wasn’t everyday you got to eat lunch with a bird.

“You look a little tired, was your trip long? I mean this place is literally in the middle of nowhere. But I guess there are positives to this, like um…..you can make glass out of sand right? Can you imagine how much glass art with could make from this desert. Then again I doubt they have kilns here. Have you two explored much? A lot of places seem out of bounds.”

"Optimism is quite refreshing in a place like this."




“I’m Maya! It’s a pleasure to meet you. The bird is very cute. I’ve only seen one at the zoo before but it looks a lot more majestic up close.” Bed-bird perked it's head up and nodded, as if it knew what she was saying. Cindy laughed, as she took a mini tomato from her salad and put it in her mouth.

"Aha, it seems Bed-Bird likes you." She smiled, which turned into a yawn.

“You look a little tired, was your trip long?" Maya asked her politely.

"Yeah.. It took the best out of me. But I'm still going strong! I met Mattress-Bird and Bed-Bird in my room. Long story, I'll explain later. But really... Why did it have to be in the desert of all places?" She said, looking up at the skylight. The girl replied with happiness.

"I mean this place is literally in the middle of nowhere. But I guess there are positives to this, like um…..you can make glass out of sand right? Can you imagine how much glass art with could make from this desert. Then again I doubt they have kilns here. Have you two explored much? A lot of places seem out of bounds.”

"Hah, I noticed that. My theory is that we're all in area 51, and we're here because they needed to know where all these powers are coming from. That's just a theory though. I'll be surprised if it's right. I doubt they'll tell us why we're here though. But the sand art is quite a unique thing to do, I'd do it if I knew how to sculpt glass, let alone make it!" She giggled, as she continued to eat her salad.

"This is kind of a touchy subject, but what's your power?" She asked with intrigue.

The conversation was going well, for a while Maya even forgot why she was in this place. Cindy’s theory was interesting. She herself was aware that helping them master their abilities wasn’t the facility’s only objective and Cindy could have been right. But the girl was right about another thing to, they’d never fully tell them the purpose of their presence here.

"This is kind of a touchy subject, but what's your power?"

“I don’t think it’s touchy. We all have a power here. It’s part of us. For me it’s like asking what your eye colour is. But to answer your question, I simply make illusions.” She closed her eyes and opened them again once a little glowing orb appeared in front of them.

“Whatever I can imagine manifests itself. It’s not real but it seems to be. I guess even if you know it’s an illusion the senses it gives you still hold up. This plain Mess room can easily become a field of flowers. We’re still in the same place but it’s a nice change of atmosphere. Only we can see it though, I haven’t tried it on this many people at a time” Maya explained with excitement, her words appearing to come to life. She wondered what ability the girl beside her had.

“And yours? A nice person like you is sure to have an interesting power!”

"Oh, me?"





Maya looked at Cindy, and replied nicely back. “I don’t think it’s touchy. We all have a power here. It’s part of us. For me it’s like asking what your eye colour is. But to answer your question, I simply make illusions.” She closed her eyes, and appearing infront of Cindy was a glowing orb. Cindy watched in awe as the orb continued to float just above the table.

“Whatever I can imagine manifests itself. It’s not real but it seems to be. I guess even if you know it’s an illusion the senses it gives you still hold up. This plain Mess room can easily become a field of flowers. We’re still in the same place but it’s a nice change of atmosphere. Only we can see it though, I haven’t tried it on this many people at a time...” Maya gave an explanation to her powers like it was her favorite thing in the whole world. She had a wonder in her eye that couldn't be compared.

She then asked Cindy the same question. “And yours? A nice person like you is sure to have an interesting power!”

"Oh, me? My power isn't quite as interesting... but I have the power to bring inanimate objects to life. They have a tendency to shape into animals, mainly because I really like animals, hehe..." Cindy said with modesty.

"I'll show you, because it's not really easy to explain. That, and I don't really know how to explain it."

Cindy focused all of her mind into the tray. She went blank for a moment, until she thought about her cousin's Border Collie, and slowly, the tray shaped itself into a Black and White Border Collie, with a blue collar and one eye. The dog jumped off the table onto the seat, giving wet kisses to Cindy.

"Oh, it's Harley! How are you cutie? I didn't think this would actually work! Ehehe, it's quite unstable. Sometimes when I get mad or scared, the furniture in my house go crazy! I accidentally made Mattress-Bird and Bed-Bird by trying to move one of the beds in my room. It only works for a few hours though. I've been practicing a lot. The first time I did this, it only lasted a few seconds." She explained to Maya, kind of embarrassed that her powers aren't as strong as hers.

"It's time to go, Harley. The guards will get mad." She said, giving Harley one last hug before turning her back into a tray.

“My power isn't quite as interesting... but I have the power to bring inanimate objects to life”

She watched with anticipation as Cindy offered to present her power. Maya’s eyes drifted from the girl to the tray and back again. It was her first time seeing someone other than her use their power and it made her heart pound. It was an amazing feeling watching someone put their mind to do something amazing like this.

The tray slowly into an adorable little doggie. If Maya wasn’t aware of people with powers it’d be hard to believe the border collie was just an everyday tray moments before.

“That’s fantastic! What a unique power to have, you shouldn’t say it’s uninteresting I think it’s great and it connects to something you really like which is animals. Powers can be a bit of a handful before you can learn to control them, I had a few troubles too. I even visited a psychiatrist a few times because they thought I was seeing things. I’m sure soon you’ll have full stability.”

Cindy’s little power performance made her realise yet again how incredible this place really was. If everyone tried they could all understand each other since they all faced the same struggles and achievements. Sure, they all had different personalities and tastes in people but Maya decided breaking those boundaries would not be so hard.

“Thank you for showing me your gift. It makes me curious as to what the others can do, I doubt I’ve even seen the faces of everyone here.”

Utrien fell asleep on the table. When he woke up, a sharply dressed woman was in the middle of a circle with a student challenging her. This is too much to process when you just woke up. So he whistled for his falcon, which landed on his shoulder. Voicing his departure to his current company. "If you would excuse me, it was great meeting you. I'm afraid my daily nap is now and that the current events,"He sweeps his hand to the circle of people. "It would be unlikely."

He strayed off to the dorms to possibly meet people. When he arrived in his room, he found that he wasn't rooming with anyone.

"Ah, yes this would be great. I could take naps here and Ezra would be relatively in a peaceful environment. Shame there aren't any vegetation." He laid down on the bed with a soft content smile.

"Have a lovely day, friend!"





Cindy tried eating the food with the best of her abilities, but she simply could not eat more. Cindy looked at Maya, as she politely put her fork onto the tray.

"Maya, thanks for the nice chat we had! I'm going to have to put my bird back into my room before it turns into furniture again. Let's chat again sometime!" Cindy grinned, as she left the table that she was sitting at, and moved to her dorm briskly, with Mattress-bird flying behind her. Mattress landed on her shoulder, and stayed there the whole way to the dorm.

When Cindy arrived at the dorm, she immediately noticed on the front of the door, there was another name on the door. "Julian Stone." She murmured outloud, immediately noticing it was a guys name. She didn't mind too much, as long as he wasn't a pervert, but she didn't know who he was, so he shrugged it off and went into the room before anyone noticed there was a mattress missing.

"I'll bring you back to life later. Please remember me." She said to the bird perched on her shoulder, as the bird moved onto the bed and turned back into a mattress.

"Now, who is this Julian guy...?" She pondered to herself. Hopefully she'll get to meet him soon.

Tyson continued to look over the school from the outside and enjoying his cigarette. Then a very cheery, if not overly cheery, girl came up to him and introduced herself as Cindy to him. Before he could respond a guard yelled at them to get inside. Ty glared up at the guard before he went inside, he needed to get his room key and junk like that. Ty stomped out his cigarette and went inside. He quickly signed in and got his room key.
Ty wondered the halls looking for his room,109A. As he searched he couldn't help but notice this place was more Alcatraz then Ridgemont High. He finally found his room. He opened the door with the key and took a good look inside at the tiny room with two beds, dressers, and a single window. "Wow. Now this really reminds me of juvie." Ty said as he tossed his backpack onto one of the beds.
Ty took out a fresh cigarette and lite it with his finger. Ty placed his iphone on the nightstand next to the bed he tossed his backpack on and started playing various songs by Nirvana. Ty cracked the window open so his smoke wouldn't completely cover the room. As he laid there smoking and listening to his music, he started making a fireball in his hand and began manipulating it into various shapes.

She cheerfully waved goodbye as Cindy headed towards the door. Maya was still a little hungry and sat at the table alone for a little while. With only a few spoonfuls left the girl began to wonder how the food actually tasted. She shattered the illusion and put the fork in her mouth. She honestly imagined it to be a lot worse but it wasn’t a taste she wanted to try again. Suddenly overcome with boredom Maya decided to head back to her room.

The halls were even more lively than before and it seemed friendships were being formed all around. Upon reaching her room Maya was positively surprised. Not only was her roommate finally here, she was in the presence of three pleasant looking boys. One which Maya could swear she saw sleeping on the table with Cindy. The girl which Maya would have the joy of sharing a room with was incredibly beautiful. She had incredible brown hair Maya could only hope for. The boys also had pretty captivating looks. Everyone at the academy seemed so cute to her.

“Hello!,” she said to everyone in the doorway as she walked through, “Nice to meet you all, especially you,” she motioned at the girl. “I’m Maya, I hope we can be good friends.”

Smiling she made her way to the bed to clean it up a little, she left in such a hurry it wasn’t looking the greatest. The people seemed a little busy planning something she wasn’t sure it’d be ok to disturb them. Then again hearing about seeing another power made her pretty excited.

“You guys wouldn’t mind if I tagged along, it gets pretty quiet here all alone?”

Marshall was beginning to think he was in over his head. It was as though fate had turned the tables on him. For once he was the one being noticed, not that he didn’t do any noticing of his own. He wasn’t exactly sure how to react in a social situation such as this. Sure, he’d observed others at his old school and what they did in social situations, but never had he been the one who had to do any sort of interacting. Something was compelling him to go against every instinct he had ever developed while going to public school for most of his life, and he was going to make the first move. His heart started racing like a humming bird. He looked back to Mike’s face and brushed his bangs out of his face revealing his own emerald green eyes and he once again was caught in his gaze, but he managed to focus enough to speak.

“So, I’m already unpacked and my roommate doesn’t seem to be in a very talkative mood right now, I could help you unpack if you’d like some help.” He almost choked on the words as he was saying them, his throat got so dry. He really was incredibly socially awkward.

As he had been unpacking his things in his dorm, he heard someone enter. Must be his room mate. At first he continued unpacking his things, sorting them out, thought it would be best to wait a bit before making conversation over something quite drastic that had seemed to happen to them all. Until a male voice spoke up first. That surprised him. So his name was Marshall, that suited him. He stood up straight and turned to see the guy, who seemed to be younger than him seeing as how Jurou was taller.Or perhaps he was just naturally short and was the same age as him, didn't matter. When he turned to get a good look at the male, he noticed Marshall seemed quite, hypnotised by something on Jurou? What was it? Why are you staring? These thoughts ran through his mind until the male broke eye contact, said he was going to the pools? And offered him to join. "Nnnno thanks." Definitely not. No way. He didn't want to look too awkward seeing as how deep water was a big fear of his, and that included big swimming pools full of water. Then the guy left. Jurou became deep in thought as he finished unpacking his things, he placed a picture of his mum, dad and himself as a little kid on his bedside table. It was the only family photo he had that included his mum. Now that she was no longer alive he cherished this photo. Wait a second, how did Marshall know his name? It completely slipped his mind then. Oh well, he would ask him later.

Leaving the dorm, he thought about exploring, he wanted to shift, use his ability but it could become a bit of a pain, because once he shifted back to human well, he would be naked. Of course he couldn't have clothes on when shifting, because if he did, then his clothes would just either lay there on the ground, or on the rare occasion shift with him and well, cats looked a bit funny with clothes on. He wasn't sure where he should go, perhaps follow that guy and see if he ends up going to the pool or not. Jurou could still smell him, his scent left a trail for him to follow, at least it was a pleasant smell unlike other teenage guys who smelled of body odour and sweaty gym socks. Those smells were most unpleasant. Waiting wasn't this stalking? Perhaps he should shift... No no no don't do it. You can't just rock up to the guy as a cat and be like 'hey there'. Because he would have to shift back to human eventually.

So Jurou followed the scent, Marshall seemed quite a bit ahead of him, he couldn't see him at all but he could still smell him, it was difficult to keep track of one smell when so many different smells intertwined and overlapped each other, like obstacles trying to stop him from following the same path. It would be awkward if he lost track of the scent, followed the wrong path and called out Marshall to someone who most certainly was not Marshall. Wow he was such a weirdo. He continued following, avoiding being seen by any people, and hopefully being unnoticed until he finally found Marshall. He was about to call out to him until he saw he had company. Well, he seemed to make friends quite quickly. Although he was a fair distance away, he could hear clearly what they were discussing, any normal human would only see their lips moving and hear probably nothing at all, maybe muffled voices, but he could hear them clearly. "my roommate doesn’t seem to be in a very talkative mood right now" well then, he felt a little more awkward now. He hadn't seemed to make the best first impression. "I guess i'll see you there." See them where? Jurou was most curious now, what were they up to? Oh wait, that guy by the sounds of it was leaving. Which way was he going, what if he passed Jurou and caught him looking like a stalker. Well technically he was being a BIT of a stalker. He needed to do something to avoid the situation, and so quickly, like an idiot, he shifted into an average sized black cat. And well, there goes his clothes. Okay so this wasn't the smartest thing to do. Especially now that he had to somehow carry all the clothes. With much difficulty he managed to throw clothes onto his back by grabbing them with his mouth. He did look fairly large for a domestic looking cat of sorts. His clothes felt more heavy in this form. Now he just need to push his shoes along... How embarrassing.

Jurou managed to make his way over to Marshall and quite confidently he pushed against his leg to get his attention. "Uh hey Marshall can you hold my clothes for me?" He felt so stupid at this point. His same copper red eyes looked up at Marshall hoping he would just casually hold his clothes. Of course no one in their right mind would take a talking cat as natural. And all this just to avoid looking like a stalker.
