Claire Shane

"Ah, so what I'm different? Normal's boring anyway!"

0 · 187 views · located in Erjykove

a character in “The Changelings”, as played by comicbooklover

Description

Claire Shane



ImageAge:
17

Sexuality:
Heterosexual

Shifting Type:
Inanimate

Favored Form:
Claire uses her power mostly to blend in with her surroundings and occasionally becoming
something useful to any present situation. She has taken a liking to becoming plants,
although her personality is anything but a nature lover. But, if she had to pick,
she favors becoming something unique, vintage, or antiquated, like the lamppost below.


Image



Personality:
Claire is a slightly peculiar piece of work. Despite being small, cuddly, and childish in appearance, Claire is actually quite devious in personality. She has a liking for what most other girls of her age and stature would find frightening, and violence intrigues her. She can be a rather quiet girl when she wants to be, or quite the opposite. Although she is slightly creepy in this way, she is kind and caring to those whom she thinks of as her acquaintances and is very loyal to those who can relate to her.
Although she lacks book smarts, Claire is great with any means of technology, as she seems to have a connection with inanimate objects more than people. She has a habit of distancing herself from reality through objects. Sometimes, she acts oblivious to bad predicaments surrounding her. But, this is just her way of getting over what went down at the government facility they were all kept in.

History:
On a cold, winter day, Claire Shane was born to the poor couple, Marie and Harvy Shane. Marie and Harvy were actors in a traveling circus, meaning Claire was raised in a less than quality environment, where the only way to pass the time was keeping yourself busy. She did so, tinkering offstage with trinkets of all sorts until she began helping out with bigger jobs, like setting up lights and electronic props. It wasn't until she was seven that she began to notice that she was strange, transforming into a teacup, only to be stuck in that form for ten minutes.
Claire soon began to become accustomed to her ability and was able to control when she shifted and what she became. It was when she was eight that she became a part of the act: an honorary carny. It wasn't until the circus became more popular that she was found by the government.
It was a summer night, when she was closely approaching the age of twelve, that men in black suits showed up at the show and attempted to take her away after the performance. Her fellow carnies tried to help, but it was all for not and she was taken, where she knew she would never see her circus home again.

Fears:
Although she says she fears nothing, Claire is deathly afraid of needles or injections.

So begins...

Jennora

Image



She woke to the smell of bacon, a small smile crept upon her face as she opened her eyes slowly. She stared up at the ceiling of her room. She had a rather large bed and could hardly believe it was all to herself, well most of the time. She looked down at the foot of her bed where the little Dyson should have been, but was not. She didn't worry about it as she slowly sat up, the sheets falling into her lap as she did.

Jennora yawned as she jumped out of bed, not bothering to make her bed this morning. She walked right into her closet and quickly changed into a short dress and converse shoes. The dress was black and white stripes and the shoes were full black with white shoe laces. Once she had put her hair in twin tails she left her room.

She caught a white fur ball that was running down the hall way. She cornered it and then picked it up, ignoring the hissing and claw marks. "Hey there. Not exactly sure who you are, but you clearly don't know how to control your changing DNA." She said with a smile. "Don't worry it gets better honey." She told the kitten, giving it a small peck on the head before letting it go and walking down stairs.

Jennora headed for the kitchen, her smile grew when she saw Christopher. Jennora gave him a peck on the cheek as she walked by him and hid her blush in the fridge as she looked for the apple juice, then frowned when she noticed they were out. She closed the fridge door and sighed. "No apple juice." She said with a frown as her little brother walked in the door. "Morning, Dyson." She told him. He smiled at her before going up the stairs.

Jennora looked at Christopher after her brother left. "I guess I'll go into town to get food today." She loved giving herself the most dangerous job, but knowing Christopher he'd want to go with her at least. She had a plan for that though. "And before you say anything, you aren't coming with me. There's other things you have to do." She told him with a smile. She leaned closer to him. "I'll take Mikuo and Jason with me." She told him with a big smile.




Dyson

Image



Sleeping peacefully one minute and the next he is being moved into the lab rooms. He looked at the large containers where the scientists were taking normal humans and injecting them with his blood. He had watched several die already, but two were living through it. It was strange, and a bit odd. He didn't struggle this time, he knew that if he struggled it would hurt more. This time felt different though, they were trying to re-open a scar on his stomach, they thought they had missed something.. They never gave him numbing medicine. They just went at it, and always without warning. He screamed when the knife hit the scar perfectly.. 'Don't move... It'll be over soon.' He told himself before he blacked out yet again...

Dyson woke up, sweating more then a person running a marathon. The nightmares were getting worse around this time, and he hadn't any idea on why this was happening. He sighed as he sat up, resting his head in his hands, if the nightmares weren't going to get any easier then was he supposed to be this miserable forever.

As soon as Dyson got out of bed he took a hot shower, and a long one. When he was done he threw on some normal blue jeans and a plain white T-shirt, he finished with his favorite tennis shoes, the color of his hair. He stepped out of his bathroom and into his room, wondering what he'd do today. Last night he had moved from Jennora's bed to his own because it was cold in there. He didn't feel like moving around the house in an animal form this morning, which meant he'd have to deal with people talking to him. That wasn't so bad though, there weren't THAT many Changelings here.

He moved down the stairs rather quickly then he wanted, he decided to go on a short walk. Once outside he realized that Christopher was cutting wood so he decided to help him. "Morning." Was all Dyson said to Christopher, sometimes he didn't even say anything at all. Why he was talking first was strange to him.

After a while he stopped to go on a walk, it was a short and meaningless walk.

When he came back his sister was in the kitchen. He smiled at her before going back up to his room, that's when he decided to annoy his brother, who should be up already. He changed into a cute hound puppy right after getting into his brothers room and got to work.




Jason

Image



Jason had spent all night writing a song for a girl in the house that he secretly had a strong liking too. And this girl, believe it or not, was not his sister. He didn't know her name and never showed any side of affections toward her in a way that was different from anyone else he socialized with.

So on this morning he decided to sleep in, ignoring the smell of bacon and the sounds of a hissing animal not far down the hall. He wasn't dreaming of anything, he never really had dreams, in fact he wasn't exactly sleeping, just laying in bed. When his door opened he thought it was his sister coming to sleep with him, but instead an adorable animal made itself comfortable on his stomach.

Jason stared down at the animal and decided to ignore it for now, only it didn't let him. It started to whine and paw at his chest. He sighed before deciding to get up, he didn't bother changing out of yesterdays shirt and pj pants, as he walked out of his bedroom and headed downstairs, the puppy in one hand.

ImageIt had been a long night for Claire, who had decided upon resisting sleep. Sleep was unnecessary for those who could keep themselves busy, and she had done an excellent job at that. Besides, not all dreams were good ones, so it was not needed to waist her time on such things.

Despite the slight buzzing of tiredness inside of her skull, the young Changeling was as alert as ever, gnawing frustrated on a pencil as she tried to piece together the puzzle laid out for her. She had been working on blueprints, spread out across the room that she had claimed as her "workroom". What she was building, she was not sure of. It could possibly have been a masterpiece if it wasn't for a blip in the instructions. Somehow, when writing how to build some incredible machine, she had made a mathematical error, once that had ruined the entirety of the project she had been working on.

Claire let out a grunt of despair, throwing her pencil across the room. The writing utensil snapped as it slammed into the wall, its remains clattering to the floor. Claire felt a pang of guilt in her heart, as being able to turn into objects gave her some sort of sympathy for the inanimate. It wasn't that she didn't have anything else to write with, as she kept a whole book bag’s worth of pens behind her left ear, just simply adoration for the unhuman. Picking up the snapped pencil, she placed it in her pocket, making a mental note to fix it later.

It was then, when she settled back down to continue her work, that the smell of food caused her mind to drift far away from the world of mathematics and calculations. Figuring, after a night spent of working, that a break was due, she clambered out of her chair and stepped into the hall, her bare feet pattering against the wooden floor. She followed the scent to the kitchen, quickly adjusting her sweater and running her fingers through her unchanging straight hair.

Stepping into the kitchen, Claire found an array of hardly familiar faces. She blankly locked eye contact with a few people before awkwardly lowering her head and marching toward the bacon, which was quite crisp, but hardly so in the eyes of the girl who preferred hers practically in ashes.

As she didn't feel in the mood to chat, she settled down in the corner of the room, pulling a pen out from behind her ear and doodling angles, variables, and such on her hand. Eventually, her notes turned to pictures from the most recent horror films she had seen, but she decided it would have been better to keep those depictions to herself.

Reyna
Image

Today was not starting out very well for the fluffy white kitten. She hated being picked up against her well and so when Jennora picked her up, she hissed and tried to claw her way down. "Hey there. Not exactly sure who you are, but you clearly don't know how to control your changing DNA." Jennora said with a bright smile. "Don't worry it gets better honey." The words stung, Reyna was hurt considering the fact that Jennora was the one who rescued her and it was in this very form that she and the older woman had become acquainted. Reyna stopped struggling and walked away with her tail between her legs, about to head upstairs to find Sapphire when Jason came down carrying a small, floppy eared puppy. Reyna jumped out of the way just in time as she was about to get kicked and hissed, swiping at the air where he had stood only seconds before.

Reyna hopped down the staircase, fur standing on end as she skittered across the floor, straight into Sapphire's legs. "Reyna!" The kitten was pleased that at least someone recognized her and her hisses turned into purrs, she bumped her head against Sapphire's palm lovingly, her tail swishing lazily back and forth. “How long ago did you change? Gosh, it must be terrible not knowing when it’s going to happen.” Reyna responded with a clipped, "mew," as if this answered Sapphire's question. It was awful and it was terribly painful, the only thing worse than randomly turning into an animal was getting stuck with a few of its attributes when she finally turned human again.

“Perhaps we should go somewhere else.” The fur ball responded with another meow, but Jason stepped forward, blocking the only exit to the kitchen that didn't lead outside and Reyna was not allowed outside. She nudged her head against Sapphire's foot and then hopped up a few steps to the puppy Jason was putting on the floor. She sniffed him suspiciously, walking in circles around him before pouncing playfully at his tail. She didn't know who the puppy was, but he seemed awfully familiar. It was at that moment that the scent of bacon wafted into her nose and while she remembered that she agreed to go somewhere with Sapphire, the temptation of food and the growling of her tiny stomach was distracting.

The kitten darted across the floor, nearly hitting another person and Reyna mentally scolded herself for allowing her animal instincts to take over. She was suddenly picked up by the scruff of her neck and hissed in protest, but was ultimately carried out of the kitchen and placed on the couch in the living room. Reyna looked up to see who her captor was to find the girl who she referred to as The Ghost because she was was hardly ever seen and if you were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of her, once you blinked she would be gone. Needless to say Reyna was not surprised when the girl, she believed her name was Katherina, disappeared after a quick scolding about being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Reyna settled onto the couch, her wide kitty cat eyes widening even more when Katherina returned and sat next to her for a few minutes, silently sketching. "What do you think?" Came from the ghost of a person beside her and Reyna turned to stare at her reflection, she jumped and hissed, darting behind a pillow before the girl remembered herself and the fact that she was not actually a cat. Slowly, she made her way back and touched the paper with a small, soft, furry paw and gave a mew of approval before hissing at the barking that came from the kitchen.

Christopher
Image

"I guess I'll go into town to get food today." Chris was about to open his mouth to tell Jennora what a wonderful idea that was when she beat him to it, "And before you say anything, you aren't coming with me. There's other things you have to do." He frowned and sighed, knowing she was right while he glared at the list of things that he needed to do that the two had comprised the night before. "I just don't feel safe with you going into town without me," even if she was taking two of their best and most experienced shifters. Speaking of Mikuo and Jason, the two emerged from the staircase, one after the other. Except, one was carrying a floppy eared puppy and the other had his hands shoved in his pockets.
“Might I ask where you’ll be taking me Jennora? It’d be nice to know my destination before I go.”
"Jennora would like to take you and Jason to the town to do some shopping today," Chris replied for Jennora, hoping Mikuo would be willing to go. Chris knew that anywhere Jennora went, Jason would follow. The woman could jump off a metaphorical cliff and her brother wouldn't even hesitate to go after her.

He tried not to twitch when Mikuo began to flirt with Jennora. He felt protective over the woman for reasons he couldn't decide and even though the two were not exclusive their feelings for each other were quite obvious. Chris's attention drifted for a second before a strong, melodic voice floated towards his ears. "Congratulations, you have once again managed to drag me from my beautiful bed and even more stunning dream about Rihanna's latest scandal. So what are we doing today?"
A small smile played on the man's lips at Lottie's words. He had never met a shape shifter that was so concerned with the pop culture of the human world.

"We have a long list of things we need to accomplish today and I'm going to need your help. Oh and spoiler alert, Rihanna didn't win a Grammy." He had seen the headline in People last time he had been in town, but that was two weeks ago and he had only gotten a glimpse at the magazine. In fact, Chris wasn't even sure if it had been about Rihanna in the first place but he did see her name somewhere next to it.

((OOC: I'm really sorry for any mistakes, it's late, I'm tired and I wanted to post something for you all since you guys are so awesome))

#, as written by Miyer

The bacon she had happily been chewing on nearly fell out of he mouth when it gapped open. "Wahh! Chris that not fair!, she cried in anguish at not knowing the latest news. You had to know, she had to know now! Guess it's time for a little sneaky sneaky trip to the village. "I am supposed to be the only gossip monger in this house!", she said before heading towards the door and back to her room, Donald Duck Pjs appearing in place of her outfit.
"Call me when you want to start work, I'm heading back to bed!" she called over her shoulder as she climbed up the stairs.
Once arriving in her room and locking the door, her PJs vanished and her outfit returned. Grinning she opened the window, giving the ground a quick scan before she climbed out.
Lottie had never been good with being stuck somewhere for to long, and the idea that a new scandal was just waiting for her in town was to much to bare. Shimming down the drainage pipe like a boss, the girls feet hit the grown and her shoes quicky changed from high heeled brown boots into a pair of fashionable running shoes. Giving one more glance towards the house to make sure no one saw her, she ran off towards the town.
It was a long way to town and running for that long wasn't possible but it should be fine. Out of all the shifters, Lottie's was the easiest to cover up and with her above par acting skills it would be easy to act off anything that happened, although she hadn't lost control in years.
Her little outing hopefully wouldn't take that long and she could be back way before Chris needed her help for work and the jennora and her group set off for town. They wouldn't even know she was missing.

Entering the small town, she smiled at the hustle and bustle of the crowds. It was market day and you could see everyone was buying their weekly shopping. Lottie loved the town, even if it was small, it had people who she could talk to and it was just so filled with ordinary life that Lottie often missed out on due to her parents and abilities.
Entering a little corner shop which sold her favourite tabloid, she pulled The Superstar from the rack and flipped thought he pages, reading as much of each scandal as she could before it was time for her to go.
Reading about the latest relationship developments between Peter Andre and Emily MacDonagh and their engagement. Lottie flipped to the next page to continue readying when the tabloids main article screamed at her face.
"Movie Star sensation, Danial Radcliffe, has been found to be a shifter! Is no one safe from this evil gene?!", It was bold and underlined along with a photo of the moviestar in his latest film.
Eyes widening a little she read on.

"Revealed as an animal shifter though government mandatory blood tests, Daniel Radcliffe has been found guilty of being a shifter. Although authorities tried to apprehend the star and secure him in a military base to ensure he wouldn't do any harm to himself or fans, people are staging protests.
The government is recieving threats that if the star is taken into custody than vivid fans of the actor will plan and commit a mass suicide.
Placed between a rock and a hard place, the government are at a loss of what to do, allowing the star to remain free for now. Danial Radcliffe has gone into hiding like many of his kind do, but he will be sniffed out and arrested, just like the rest of those vermin shifters."


Lottie stared at the words for a long time, rereading them in hopes that they would change. Despite her wishes they remained the same and the girl began to shake from the small shivers of fear that were continually racking her body.
It didn't matter who they were, even if they were famous, shifters were still seen as vermin in the eyes of the public...

Reyna
Image

Reyna had been settling onto a pillow, her tail curling around her body when the puppy was plopped onto the couch. She walked over curiously, hissing when he got too close to her and jumping back. Again she attempted to move closer and he licked her nose, Reyna brushed her now wet fur with her front paws, attempting to smooth her silky white coat back down and wondering how much longer until her body decided to change back. She could try to force her body to change but the result would be painful and she would most likely end up stuck with a cat tail.

So Reyna waited and took a swipe at Dyson's tail as it wagged back and forth quickly. What was he so happy about? She wondered when Lennox suddenly walked in and pet her. What was with everyone today? She had never seen the whole house in such a good mood. Maybe it was the bacon or the clear morning skies? She wondered when the cracking noise started and Reyna jumped off the couch, biting back her screams and drawing blood as her body changed, her fur changing to skin and her bones lengthening until she was at her full height. Reyna quickly grabbed one of the towels out of a nearby laundry basket and wrapped it around her naked body. She blushed furiously when she realized Dyson had been watching the whole time and nervously licked the blood that had been dribbling down her chin.

"I'm gonna go," she said awkwardly, the pink shade in her cheeks darkening as she turned around and walked to the kitchen where her pile of clothes still lay in a heap on the floor. Hopefully the others were too occupied by the bacon to notice as she picked her belongings up and headed to the bathroom to put her garments back on. Reyna felt much better once she was human again and went to fix herself some cereal and milk since Lennox had eaten the rest of the bacon. She poured the rest of the Honey-Nut-Cheerios into a chipped plastic blue bowl and poured some milk in. The kitchen was too crowded and so she headed back to the living room, sitting on the floor across from where puppy Dyson was still on the couch.

Christopher
Image

Chris felt his embarrassment as his cheeks flushed a bright red. "I know you feel safer if your with me, but we don't really have time for that. Why do I get the feeling this is because you want to spend time with me?" Jennova laughed, sounding so carefree "How about we have a slumber party in my room tonight?" He covered his cheeks with his hands, playing it down by resting his elbows on the table to look like he was simply holding his head up.

His attention turned to the small blonde Lottie and a slight smile played on his lips"Wahh! Chris that not fair!
"Sorry Lottie, that's what happens when you ignore your turn to do the laundry."
"I am supposed to be the only gossip monger in this house!" But Chris was too busy looking over the list to fret over Jason's affectionate kiss to his sister and Lottie's complaints. "Call me when you want to start work, I'm heading back to bed!"

"I'll need you in about an hour!" He called after Lottie and checked off one thing on his list, the fire wood. The next thing was fixing a broken solar panel and then he would need Lottie's help to take care of a varmint problem in the food stores. Maybe he should ask Katherina instead? He wasn't sure if Lottie was squeamish about rats or not. Speak of the devil Katherina appeared before him, asking about band aids but Lennox had already covered that and was disinfecting the wound before Chris could even speak up.

"Oh good, Lennox you're awake. There's something I wanted to talk to you about," he said, catching the man mid chew. He didn't mean to interrupt Lennox's breakfast but with all the hubbub this morning Chris doubted he would have another chance. "Hey are you guys going into town today? Well if so I just wanted to let you know that I put the store's money in the account so we're all good."

"Well, actually I wanted to talk to you about possibly opening an emergency account? One that the government wouldn't be able to trace back to us and we could use in case of emergencies?" They had two regular accounts, one belonged to Lennox and his store, the other was the one that Lennox had opened to help provide for the Changeling safe house. Chris was very grateful to the man, but he knew that avoiding a run-in with the government might be in their near future, especially with the news of so many celebrities coming out of the proverbial shape shifter closet.

ImageIt was only once Claire had covered most of her hand with doodles that she returned to reality. "Crap," she muttered under her breath, sizing up her blue-pen-speckled hand. Grumbling, she dragged herself up the wall into an upright position, stuffing her hand into her sweater pocket.

The kitchen, while she had been distracted, seemed to have cleared slightly. Of the Changelings there, most of them she recognized but didn't know personally. Most of the talk came from three guys who were discussing money, and the only thing she knew about that was how to earn and pickpocket it. As she didn't know them nor the conversation material well enough, she kept her talkativeness shut in. Slowly gaining the energy she had lost from a long night, she sprung up the steps, stopping at the living room to find quite a simple picture. There was a girl inside with long blue hair and a small dog. It actually looked normal, if you thought the animal was her pet, but if you considered the fact that it was a human being, it was a bit strange.

Claire shook off the subject, deciding she'd rather not dwell on it. Sitting down in a chair on the wall opposite to the couch, she examined her hand. She prayed that the blue ink would come out easily, but, with her luck, it probably wouldn't. Bitterly, she hid it once again.

Although she willed herself not to seem creepy, she looked over at the practical stranger, recognizing her as Jennora, but the puppy remained nameless as there were many animal shifters in the home and she could never be sure. Awkwardly, she averted her eyes and stared at the ground, as if deep in thought.

She wondered if it was simpler to shift into something useful. Animal shifters and human shifters could be whoever they wanted. On a good day, Claire could be a lamp. She wasn't jealous, but curious, in the same way as a female may wonder what it's like to be a male.

Finally, deciding making conversation would be the least peculiar of the things she could do in the given situation, she looked back at Jennora. "So," she said, "uh, cold weather we're having today, right?"

She inwardly cursed herself, as she most likely had disturbed the girl from the thought she had seemed to be in. Worries and nerves pounded her, as she wasn't socially awkward, just no good and mingling with strangers, as most thought her "strange" and "violent". But, of course, most normal people were dull in that way. So, hoping she hadn't proven to be stupid already, she just smiled.

Reyna
Image

Reyna crunched down on her cereal, the silence between her and Sapphire filled with the sound of chewing. She picked up her bowl once all the cereal was gone and slurped down her milk. Reyna was about to go put the bowl in the sink when Sapphire's brother, Mikou came to sit with them. The brunette put the bowl down, figuring she might as well stay for a few more minutes and make polite conversation.

“So what are you girls up to?” Reyna contemplated as to how she should answer. She could always give a short, one syllable reply such as okay, however that would sound rude and indicate she would make no further attempts to converse. If she answered with good and you? It would seem like she actually cared about how he felt, when in fact, she was indifferent. So Reyna settled for, "fine. We were just savoring the silence of morning."

The girl left to go put her bowl in the sink and came back quickly, sitting back down on the floor. She was still embarrassed that nude encounter earlier and could only hope that tomorrow it she would find it laughable. Reyna sighed and brushed a strand of loose hair to the side, she looked up at Mikou and Sapphire and gave the two a wide smile. "How did you two sleep?"

Christopher
Image

Chris directed a sigh at Jason when he spoke up about the problem. "I love how you two always forget that money is never an issue with us. Or at least if you would take my money."
"I realize you've never had to worry about things like a budget, but if the government is tracking us, or your family; which I can assure you they are, then we need to be more careful about how much we spend and where the money comes from." He sighed and rubbed his temples. Chris came from a rich family himself, he knew how it was, having everything you could ever want and more. Never being satisfied with anything because he had everything, but Chris had been cut off and had learned pretty quickly how to budget.

"I can name four things in this house alone that the suits are will stop at nothing to have back." Suits was another name for the crazed doctors, scientists, and government officials that tested and tortured children because of their DNA. Sapphire, Dyson, Lottie, and Reyna were all very valuable to the Facility for the Genetically Divergent. Then another person spoke up, "Don't you think the government would be tracking that? Its not normal for large amounts of money to be transferred to an accountant in a small town, a shop's earnings are less noticeable and less of a risk of the government finding us and your parents, it doesn't matter how smart they are about it either." He had taken that into consideration and had figured the amount would be just under five hundred dollars, not enough to draw attention to themselves, but enough to last a few weeks if an emergency arose, plus most shops had emergency surplus and money to fall back on in case their stores closed down.

"Lennox, Christopher I have some money from paintings I have sold we can put that into the emergency account."
"Thank you Katherina, that is very kind of you to offer your hard earned money for us to use and Jason, if you want to stay rather than go to the town then talk to your sister. She was set on having you go with her and you know it is almost impossible to change Jennora's mind." Chris knew that Jennora's stubbornness would end up being the woman's fatal flaw; that and her love for her family. Jason was really the only one that could change the woman's mind once it had been made up.

"Don't you think the goverment would be tracking that? Its not normal for large amounts of money to be transferred to an accountant in a small town, a shop's earnings are less noticeable and less of a risk of the goverment finding us and your parents, it doesn't matter how smart they are about it neither" Katherina had told Jason, making him laugh at her stupidity, then again not everyone knew about his family so he couldn't exactly blame her. Not even Christopher knew about his family. Hell, he wasn't sure if Jennora or Dyson knew.

"You seriously think my family is that stupid, honey?" Jason said to Katherina. "Our family has been hiding from the government for years. My entire family is Changelings, I think they know how to get away from the government. Plus, they've always been putting the same amount of money in our accounts since we were kids. We're spoiled little rich kids who have a shit ton of money but never really spend it unless we really want too. Jason shook his head and laughed again, leaning on the counter as he did. He looked at Christopher as he spoke as well. "I'm a lot more skilled then you realize, Christopher. Getting away from the government is too easy. My key to it, is to never get attached to someone you could lose." He told Christopher, the only person he really cares about is his sister, he has a few feelings for others but nothing compares to the love he has for his twin sister.

He laughed at Christopher's comment on Jennora's stubbornness. "You all are making my morning a little more exciting. I don't really want to go into town today. I don't feel like turning into a car and having people touch me in places I don't want to be touched in." Jason said as he walked away. He didn't leave anyone, any time to answer anything of what he said. A few minutes after he left he saw Katherina go outside, and decided to go talk to Jennora.

His sister had just gotten back from her room and was sitting in the living room with Sapphire, Reyna and Clarie. "What is this? A girl's party.. Oh no wait, Dyson's here. Well I guess it is a girl's party." He smiled at his brother as the puppy slowly changed into a big black scary wolf and barked loud at Jason, almost making him jump.

Jennora was having a pretty good day so far, she already had a plan to get her little sister back and was heading down into the living room to hang out with others before she decided to leave. She wasn't worried about getting back into the government to find her little sister, the only thing that sort of got to her was the fact that she might have to get other Changelings out as well, her little sister seemed to care too much about others then Jennora would hope for. The whole "we can come back later" won't exactly work on the woman.

Jennora smiled when Mikuo came in, she had thought since day one that he looked almost incidental to Jason. That was probably why she enjoyed being around him so much. "So what are you girls up to?" [/b] He asked after playing with Sapphire a little bit. "Not much, just waiting for you to get ready. I think I might want to head out a little earlier. I want to go on a small shopping spree."

Jennora looked at Clarie as she walked into the living room and sat down across from the couch that Jennora was on. She then looked at the small puppy on the couch next to her and picked him up, setting him on her lap and starting to pet him. He playfully bit her hand and growled, making her fake growl back at him. When she was done playing with him she patted his back and looked up at Clarie smiling. [i] "So, uh cold weather we're having today, right?"
She had asked Jennora.

"I suppose, it's warmer then it's been in a while. That is why I decided to wear a dress today." She shrugged. "Clarie, would you like to join me in my shopping spree this morning? I'll buy you whatever your heart desires, I would just like another girl with me." Then she looked at Mikuo. "No offense."

Jason walked in a second after she was done talking and she smiled at him, and then laughed and moaned an "Ow" as the puppy on her lap dramatically grew in under 5 seconds. She hated that Dyson was so good at that. "Jason your so mean to Dyson, what did he ever do to you?"

"Oh I'm just kidding! Calm down Jenn." Jason told her before taking a breath in and sitting next to her. He looked at her as he spoke next, the look on his face almost creeped her out. "So I don't want to go into town, can you just take Christopher? Think of it as a date... With Mikuo... And possibly Clarie. Might as well throw Reyna and Dyson in too. Then it could be a triple date!" He said the last part all excited, making her laugh and shake her head. "Whatever, fine. Though I don't think Reyna is ready to go out yet." Jennora looked at Reyna. "Sorry dear, I care about you too much."

"Overprotective bitch.." She heard Jason muffle under his breath and slapped him in the back of the head. Calling him an ass as she did.

Dyson watched everyone around him and loved the extra attention that Jennora had given him. After Jason came in however he quickly changed his appearance into a black wolf because he knew it would scare his brother at least somewhat, even if he didn't show it on the outside, Dyson had a feeling on the inside it would scare him a little.

Dyson moved from Jennora's lap whenever she said 'Ow' and moved over to Reyna, licking her cheek before walking away into the front room and laying on the floor. He didn't understand his feelings for Reyna, but he knew he was probably annoying the girl so he thought it would be best for him if he just left. He watched others pass by, but always kept his head on the floor and his eyes up. Soon enough he found his eyes shutting and himself drifting off to sleep, remaining in this form.

Jennora answered quite pleasantly as she averred she wanted to go out on a shopping spree. “Sounds good,” Mikuo said in answer, “I was just thinking we should leave a bit earlier. There really is no point in waiting after all. As for being ready, I am when you are.
Reyna, however, answered in, what seemed to Mikuo, a colder way. “Fine. We were just savoring the silence of the moment.” The remark sounded slightly accusatory, as if Mikuo had interrupted the silence. Okay, he had, but that was beside the point. The boy shifted a bit to lean on Saphire and clasped his hands around her neck, trapping her, while resting his head on her own. He never really liked to sit still in one place for too long for, unlike Saphire, he was unable to find serenity by being still.

When Reyna came back from the kitchen her tone had changed and was more cheerful, far better than before. She gave the two a wide smile before breaking the silence to inquire how their sleep had been. Mikuo was the first to answer, “Pretty good. Woke up a bit too early for my liking but other than that it was sound.

Saphire was quick to follow in a quiet voice, the way she always spoke. However she looked relatively happy to be surrounded by the people she was closest to. “I also slept quite pleasantly. There was this one nightmare… No its nothing.” Mikuo looked at his sister questioningly as she hesitantly trailed off. It wasn’t like her to do such a thing around him or Reyna. Whatever nightmare she had had had really freaked her out.

"What is this? A girl's party… Oh no wait, Dyson's here. Well I guess it is a girl's party." Jason entered with a teasing debut, the remark directed apparently at the dog whose name Mikuo vaguely recognized. Unfortunately, such a comment affected Mikuo as well.
Oy, I’m here too!” He let go of his sister, smiled in a slightly devious way, and enthusiastically (as well as sarcastically) patted the floor next to him. “You’re welcome to join though Jason. I’m sure you’d fit right in.

Mikuo seemed a bit offended by Reyna’s answer but Saphire didn’t mind. She had been about to say such a thing herself.

After a bit of interaction, Jennora announced that she wanted to go shopping. "Clarie, would you like to join me in my shopping spree this morning? I'll buy you whatever your heart desires, I would just like another girl with me." Then she looked at Mikuo. "No offense."

None taken.” Mikuo answered in a reasonable understanding way. As for Saphire she stayed silent, deterred by the many people talking at once. It was a bit pointless for her to speak in this moment. She usually only spoke when spoken to anyway.

She felt a bit of a pang when Jason volunteered Reyna. It wasn’t the separation that unsettled her, just the fact that she realized she’d be alone with both Mikuo and Reyna gone. But she’d rather stay at the safe house then go out into town. She didn’t exactly find traveling back out into the open where the danger of being discovered lurked as exhilarating as her brother did.

Looking around she wondered who she could spend the day with. Possibly Jason? Or would that be too awkward? She didn’t exactly know him, though it might be nice to be able to.

Reyna
Image

Reyna's mind drifted for a moment before Mikou answered her question. “Pretty good. Woke up a bit too early for my liking but other than that it was sound.” That was good, at least someone in the house slept soundly. “I also slept quite pleasantly. There was this one nightmare… No its nothing.” Sapphire's voice was so soft, Reyna had almost missed what she said. "Do you want to talk about it?" She asked quietly, her tone and expression were both serious; when suddenly Jason popped into the room and began to tease them all.

So I don't want to go into town, can you just take Christopher? Think of it as a date... With Mikuo... And possibly Clarie. Might as well throw Reyna and Dyson in too. Then it could be a triple date!" Reyna's hopes soared when Jason suggested she go along with them to the town, she didn't even notice the part he threw in about making it a double date with Dyson. While Dyson was nice, Reyna wasn't sure of her feelings for him, or anyone for that matter. The only person Reyna knew that she was really comfortable with was Sapphire and sometimes Jennora. "Whatever, fine. Though I don't think Reyna is ready to go out yet." The look Jennora gave her seemed concerned. "Sorry dear, I care about you too much."

"Yeah, whatever," Reyna bristled, although it was probably for the best. She should be used to getting denied entry to the human world, however it stung a bit every time they said no. It wasn't her fault she was defective; her genetics just sucked. Reyna hugged her knees and stared at the carpet. At that moment Dyson came up to her and licked her cheek, she scratched behind his ear in return and watched him walk out. Lucky, the girl thought, wiping wolf saliva off of her face. He has control over his shape shifting abilities. Maybe she could ask him how he did it?

Christopher
Image

Chris tuned out Jason's rant about money and being a rich, spoiled, brat. He was done with listening to that boy preach to the choir. He looked up when Jason said his name, listening once more as Jason's little schpiel came to an end. "I'm a lot more skilled then you realize, Christopher. Getting away from the government is too easy. My key to it, is to never get attached to someone you could lose."

"Don't use my full name." He hated his full first name, Chris preferred his nickname because Christopher sounded so.... Stuck up. Like a spoiled rich kid, which is exactly what he no longer was. Chris sighed and ran a hand through his hair, giving Katherina an apologetic look before she left with her dangerously sharp knives. Chris was surprised she hadn't impaled Jason with them. As for what he said about not getting attached to anyone... That was hard"You all are making my morning a little more exciting. I don't really want to go into town today. I don't feel like turning into a car and having people touch me in places I don't want to be touched in."

"Yeah, well convince your sister otherwise and I'd be happy to go in your place." He loved going to the town and seeing the normal people live their generic lives, unknowing to the dangers that lurked just beyond the forest. People were so peaceful when they thought their lives are in good hands.

Jennora laughed at what Mikuo had to say about leaving early. "Glad we agree. Two is a charm, but we should go in a group of three to be safe." She told him, standing up to stretch, then turning back to the couch to pick up her purse. She gave Reyna a concerning look when she said "Yeah, whatever."

"Don't 'Yeah, whatever' me. You and I both know it's for the best. I don't want to sound like your mother but when you have learned to control everything I'll take you wherever you want to go. I promise, but until then I don't want to risk your safety." Jennora shrugged, she really hated feeling like she was the mother of the house or that she was the bad guy. She'd love for Reyna to go places with her. Jennora was the one that saved her, and she put it upon herself to take care of Reyna, and she would. "I'll buy you some stuff while I'm out. And we can hang out later. For now, can you please try to cheer Dyson up?" She asked Reyna, giving her an even more concerning look.

"I'm going to go talk to Chris." Jennora told everyone, waving as she left to go back into the kitchen. When she spotted Chris her heart practically jumped out of her chest as she wrapped her arms around his shoulders from behind. She held on for a few seconds before letting go to stretch her arms behind her back, trying to pop her back as she spoke to him. "Will you please go into town with Mikuo and I? Jason doesn't want too." She asked Chris with a frown. "I want to go on a small shopping spree. Not only for myself. Oh I think Clarie is coming as well. Not sure.." She looked away thinking about if the girl had answered her. If so, Jennora didn't hear her. That would be so mean of Jennora, though she had a lot of other stuff to deal with.

Jason sighed as his sister left, looking over at Reyna. "Just to piss her off, I'll take you into town after she leaves, if you'd like." He smiled at her, loving to mess with his sister at times. He didn't think it was fair to keep Reyna locked up in here. Then again, Jason never really thought of anyone's safety. Yet even now, it didn't cross his mind at all. "Unless you enjoy hanging around a depressed kid all day." Jason shrugged.

He looked at everyone in the room, before stopping at Sapphire. "What're you doing today?" He asked her. "Would you want to help me with whatever is on Chris's list for things to do around here?"

Chris
Image

"Oh my, it seems like three of our beloved members have unexpectedly disappeared." Chris said to no one in particular, he had figured this would happen sooner or later, that the siblings would up and leave when they grew bored with what was going on. Oh well, Chris didn't need that type of attitude in the household, he had enough problems trying to keep Lottie in the house and getting Claire to speak up.

"Well since we're all obviously so anxious to leave, how about we all go into the town?" He suddenly decided. It was a risk, Chris knew. Such a big group going into town, but they could pretend to go to the local boarding school. No one really ever questioned those kid's presences; plus there were a ton of spare uniforms in the closet that they had collected over the past few years. So unless the boarding school had updated its uniforms, they would hopefully blend in.

"If everyone could please gather in the kitchen so we can talk about our outing!" Chris called up the stairs and poked his head into the living room. "Would you guys mind coming to the kitchen for a minute?" He went to sit at the table and waited for everyone to gather around. They would have to come up with an alibi in case something happened or they ran into someone that actually attended the boarding school (which would be unlikely considering that those kids considered themselves too classy to go to the town).

Claire was so quiet Chris had hardly noticed her until he looked up from the table. "Oh have you been here the whole time?" He asked her, hoping he didn't somehow offend the girl by implying he hadn't seen her.

Reyna
Image
Reyna stood up and held her hand out to Sapphire, leading the girl into the kitchen. Going into town? Her heart rate began to pick up at the prospect that she would actually get to see the humans! Reyna tried to calm herself down, if she grew too excited she would unwillingly shift and blow it before she could step onto real pavement. "Aren't you excited?" She asked Sapphire, hoping the answer was yes. Had Sapphire ever left the house before? Reyna wondered, trying to think back. She couldn't remember, really.

"Reyna will you go get Katherina for me?" Chris asked and Reyna nodded her head, dropping Sapphire's hand and going outside to the shed where she hoped Katherina would be. Reyna pushed the door open and stopped, the smell of blood and dead animal brought back bad memories. She felt dizzy as she stepped inside, her bare feet feeling cold on the hard floor of the shed. "Katherina?" She looked around, spotting the girl who sported an arm full of meat. "Um," Reyna stated nervously as she caught site of the sharp knives. "We're uh-having a meat-meeting about our alibi for going into town. Chris wants you to join us in the kitchen when you can."

She stepped back outside into the grass that was still slick with dew and gasped in the chilly mountain air. It was all she could not to vomit as she made her way back to the house. Reyna stepped inside and wiped her dirty feet on the mat before stepping onto the tiled floor of the kitchen. The smell of blood was still thick in her memory as she sat down next to Claire at the table.
