| Personality |
Due to her innocent face, large eyes and button nose, most people make the mistake of thinking Lottie to be week and naive, to gullible for her own good.
Most of these people end up badly hurt.
Lottie is smart and knows how to play with people's weaknesses and put her own appearance to her advantage, always acting to be innocent and sweet, acting like she cares and helping you however she can without asking for anything in return. Again that's how most people look at her, she is actually very devious and selfish, only doing acts that will help further her own gain and goals while not caring who she steps on in the process.
However like every disagreeable person in the world she does have a good side which is hard to find and get to, as Lottie is very mistrustful and guarded against anything she might consider betrayal.
With her keen love of fashion and latest celebrity gossip she is never at a lose for interesting and/or scandalise conversation, always able to get information on anyone if she puts on the right confidence, mindset and clothing. She is able to pull herself off as a celebrity or a hobo with a quick wardrobe change and still pull it off with surprising ease, and maybe if she hadn't been a changeling a future of an actress would of been likely.
Despite Lottie being the exact opposite in characters as her appearance shows, she does (unfortunately) have some very Dojikko traits. IE she is as clumsy as an elephant on skates, she can generally turn it around and make it cute but if you don't want something precious to you broken than don't give it to her or you might hear a crash a few seconds later.
She was also trained to be a bride by her mother, cooking, cleaning, sewing, the whole lot and she hates that she knows it because it won't stop haunting her, if she sees a mess than she begins to feel her hand itch until it's cleaned up, and this annoys her to no end.

| History |
Born into a rich family, she was taught her only possible future was that of a silent trophy wife to some random, rich or noble old geezer who her father would pick out for her. Her father held a high position in business and government, his only concern being money, power and titles, where as her mother only cared for elegance, grace and what people though of her.
Lottie's first shift was when she was 6, her mother had been making a fuss to the servants about the girls birthday dress and saying how ugly and disgraceful it was, that all the servants would be whipped if Lottie did not have a new dress immediately. The servants could do nothing about the dress, Lottie had chosen it to wear however non of the servants ran their mouth against the little girl for whatever reason. Not wanting to see the servants whipped for no valid reason, Lottie focus her energy on the dress and wished in her mind that it would change to the one that her mother wanted. The room descended into chaos as the girls cloths changed magically into the one her mother wanted the girl to wear.
Due to her fathers high standing, he was able to keep the girl at home till she was 16 however he locked her away from the rest of the world so the only people she ever had any contact with were the servants and the idols who smiled up at her from their glossy magazine pages.
Just before Lottie was wed to some ugly, old man, the military stepped in and took her from her family. She didn't feel sad, more free and liberated after her escape from her lonely prison of a mansion.
Unlike most changelings, Lottie could change anything she was wearing however she was unable to change her skin or become animal like other changelings could. It confused scientists and she was often the subject to constant poking and experimenting (torture) due to it.
But she was free to talk to other people, even if they were just hurting her, she was finally free from her old prison... Even if she had basically jumped from the pan into the fire.

| Other |
Lottie has no real dreams except to escape and live life how she wants to. She likes to gossip and learn new information, always trying to sneak into the town so that she can hear the latest news about who's-his-face and what's-her-name from the old ladies in town. She hates to be given orders and bossed around, she will do her things her own way and suffer the consequences however she refuses to be changed like a bird in a cage.
Lottie was able to get a small tattoo of a black butterfly on the back of her neck, though no one knew about it as it is always covered by her hair. It signifies her freedom and the beauty of the world.

So begins...

Lottie lay curled happily amongst the nest of blankets and pillows, that were keeping the girl warm and snug. She was hidden away in Lala land where nothing could hurt her and she really, really didn't want to wake up.
The smell of bacon started to spread though the house and she could feel her nose sniff a bit at the delicious smell.
'Mustn't wake up, must stay in warm bed where I can dream about the latest Gucci bag... Bacon smells sooooooo gooddddd....' She though as she lay frozen in her bad having an inner war with herself about whether or not she should go down stairs and eat some breakfast or stay hidden in her comfy bed...

Suddenly a scream of pain pierced the air which caused the girl to sit straight up, eyes wide open as she leapt from the bed and ran downstairs due to the commotion. Running down the hallway she felt her cozy turtle PJs change into today's outfit.
Rounding the corner she skidded into the room, she lost her balance as her socked feet slipped on the kitchen tiles and sent her tumbling into the counter.

Shaking her head a bit to get rid of her daze she looked at the rooms occupants and noticed the little white kitten, nearly groaning when she realised there had been no need to get out of bed at all. Giving a sigh she pulled herself up onto her padded feet and made her way towards the plate full of slightly charred bacon that still smelt like heaven had decided to turn itself into a food and temp whatever poor being (e.g. Lottie) who stumbled upon it with its perfect goodness.

Grabbing up a slice and taking a bit she turned back to the group in the kitchen and gave them all her innocent smile, "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?", she finished off as she reached for another slice of bacon.

The door opened with a loud creak and for a moment the girl froze worried that perhaps she might have awoken one of the others. However when no one came for her she slipped outside of the safe house and quietly closed the door behind her, cringing again at how it whined to be properly oiled. Once she was outside she straightened from her semi crouch and stood flat on her feet, no longer needing to be overly silent. Saphire raised her hands above her head, stretching her muscles in order to wake them up. The early morning was one of her favorite times as it was when the world was preparing to waken up but hadn’t quite done so yet.

As she did every cool, misty morning, the blue haired girl made her way to her favorite spot in the small valley surrounded by forest. Said spot was simply a randomly chosen place in the clearing that she often laid in. She had no idea why it was so special to her; perhaps it was because it seemed so far away from any commotion and civilization or perhaps it was simply just the feeling that time was meaningless when she sat there. Either way she loved it and, after 3 years of continuously returning to it nearly every morning, a faint and inconspicuous path had begun to form.

Now, she slipped off her dirtied white converses and for a moment felt the grass between her toes. The blades tickled her feet in a way that made her senses tingle and somehow raised her spirits. Here, Saphire felt calm and at peace as she slipped her headphones over her ears and switched her device on to one of her favorite songs. She then lay down as the music started to play, staring up at the cloudless sky that was brightening with every minute as the sun rose higher.

She’s the girl that no one ever knows…” ((Say You Like Me |We the Kings))





She was shivering and clinging on to her twin sister, Topaz, who was obviously equally scared but was attempting to act the bigger sister. Even though she was only older by a minute, Topaz always behaved as if she were years older and was always very protective of Saphire.

The two children were in a cage, big enough to fit the two of them and yet, at the same time, so confined. They were being treated as if they were wild animals deserved to be locked up. But they were not alone. Thousands of other abused children were howling and wailing, screaming and shouting, or simply sitting there staring blankly at one another.

Saphire had seen countless of these children being helplessly pulled from their cages but never returning. Every time one of the scary monsters in white lab coats came in she would pray that it wouldn’t be her. Like now. The vicious creature lurked around the room, peering into each tight and confined space in order to determine which would be his next victim. Saphire’s tiny six year old brain could only imagine what he would do to her. Probably eat her or feed her to his minions.
Not me, not me, not me, not me… She thought this until her brain hurt and the words began to swirl together. The man was coming closer and closer to her cage. He was reaching towards the barred door, fumbling for one of his many keys. The tiny girl squeezed her eyes closed and clenched her fists in anxious apprehensiveness and dread. Not me!

It wasn’t her.

It wasn’t her, but instead her sibling who was taken from their prison. There was a small struggle as Topaz finally accepted her fate and let her emotions out, screaming and clawing at her twin for help. In vain both girls used all of their strength to attack the man separating them. It was no use and he quickly slapped them, shocking them into silence.

Topaz regained her senses and stopped crying to smile brightly at Saphire. For a moment it was as if they were no longer in the institution. One might have thought the girls had escaped if they examined the brightness of the close lipped expression. Yet behind the happiness was sadness and a feeling of acceptance that no six year old girl deserved to feel. Topaz’s expression was of one who accepted, perhaps even welcomed, Death.

“Don’t worry Saphire. I’ll be back and soon we’ll be just like we were.”


Liar.




Hey, hey! You, you! I don’t like your girlfriend!” ((Girlfriend| Avril Lavigne ))
The loud music blasted into her ears awakening Saphire with a start. She grabbed her phone and, in one fluid motion, stood up, removed her head phones from her ears letting them hang around her neck, and paused the song. Judging from the sun it was still early morning, yet later than it had been. A quick check of the time confirmed this theory. Apparently Saphire had slept through most of her playlist.

Her dream floated across her mind haunting her. It seemed she could not escape the horror of her past. Unconsciously her frail hand flew to her left shoulder where the number 01 was branded. Then, with a shake of her head intended to clear the memory from her mind, she turned and set out back towards the house, her pony tail, which was tied up with a ribbon, bobbing as she walked.

As she neared the house the delectable smell of bacon hit her. The thought of grease and fat usually disgusted her but bacon was one of her few exceptions of this distatse. Her mouth was almost watering as she opened the door and the savory scent became stronger.
However it was to her displeasure when she saw the many people in the room chattering and talking. It wasn’t that she disliked her fellow Changelings but instead that she felt awkward and nervous near these people she was still relatively unfamiliar with after three years.

She crept around the edges of the room, head down, attempting to make herself go unnoticed. Once she darted out into the open to grab a particularly crispy piece of bacon on which she promptly began to nibble. She then proceeded to make her escape out of the room which was growing more crowded by the minute as shifters made their way down to the kitchen, lured by the smell.

She almost made it out as it was, until a flying, hissing, fur ball practically ran straight into her. Startled she stumbled back a bit before she recognized the luscious coat that belonged to the cat that she had nearly collided with. A smile crossed her face as she picked up the small kitten and gave her a small hug, though not tight enough to constrict the animal.

Reyna!” A pain behind her eyes, much like a headache, signaled that they were changing colors, probably turning a golden honey, perhaps speckled with green, which signified she was happy. ((OOC: I did mention in her bio that, much like Reyna, Saphire cannot control her powers. I forgot to mention however that, unlike Reyna’s, they change with her emotions. Sometimes if she concentrates hard enough she can change her features at will but this is rare.)) Her smile was replaced by a frown as she attempted to change her eyes back to normal. She never had liked her abilities as they were defective and she had not been born with them. However it was to no avail and she soon gave up trying. They would change back eventually.

She lowered the kitten to the ground and crouched next to it, now oblivious to the once intimidating crowd in the kitchen. She began to stroke the soft, smooth fur of the cat, a habit of hers ever since she had become acquainted with Reyna. By now she knew that the girl had no control over her shape shifting powers.

How long ago did you change? Gosh, it must be terrible not knowing when it’s going to happen.” She stopped her rhythmic motion to survey the chatter before her. She had a special connection with Reyna. She felt as if the girl got her as no one else (except perhaps her brother) did. Her feelings were strange. She yearned to have such a connection with others but always separated herself from them.

Perhaps we should go somewhere else.” The chatter and rather annoying feelings of loneliness were both irritating. She was just about to stand up and lead Reyna to a more quiet environment when a blue haired man in possession of a puppy appeared and, in doing so, blocked the door way.

Ugh, sun. He really never had been a morning person, unlike his sister who always seemed to have gone somewhere or another in the early dawn. But however much he longed to go back to bed he knew that once he had woken up it was futile to try and get him to slumber until the next morning.

Mikuo forced himself out of the heaven of rumpled bed sheets and pillows before pulling on a pair of fresh jeans and a grey tee. He didn’t bother to brush his hair with an actual hairbrush but instead ran his fingers through the mess in order to partially tame it. He then proceeded to head downstairs towards the kitchen where an alluring smell attracted him.

It turned out the source of the scent was some slightly charred bacon which lay out for anyone to grab a piece. Mikuo took the silent offer and grabbed a slice hurriedly putting it in his mouth and letting it hang out so that he could prepare some toast.
“…take Mikuo and Jason with me.” The blue haired boy perked up when he heard his name, looking up in the middle of buttering his toast, much like the manner of a dog. Having finished off the meat he was now eating the crunchy, slightly burnt, bread as he made his way over to the speaker. Jennora was planning something with Chris and apparently he was involved.

Might I ask where you’ll be taking me Jennora? It’d be nice to know my destination before I go.” He paused making a show of looking her up and down before speaking again, “Then again, perhaps going somewhere with you isn’t such a bad thing.” Mikuo laughed good naturedly to show he was only joking and not seriously flirting with her. He had no romantic interest in the woman as of yet although she was nice looking.

Morning Chris. Same to you, Lottie.” He addressed the man in front of him before calling across the room towards the girl dressed as fashionable as ever. It seemed that for no particular reason Mikuo was in a good mood. He usually was. Although sometimes he resorted back to his true personality, still a relatively good natured boy but one with dark secrets.

((OOC: Alright I’m going to have to end it here. Sorry the endings are a bit abrupt but, as always, I’m running low on time.))

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

"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))

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...

Jason happened to walk into the kitchen just as Christopher was telling Mikuo what Jennora's plans were. He smiled at the excitement that he was going to do today, completely forgetting he was holding a puppy. He groaned as Dyson bit his hand and jumped out of it. Dyson barked at him on the ground before running of into the living room. Jason ignored him as he continued on into the kitchen.

He slapped Chris on the back playfully. "Hello." He said before moving onto his sister, he hugged her from behind and picked her up, laughing as she screamed at him to put her down. Only when he did he gave her a big peck on the cheek. "Oh come on, I know you love me!"

"Shut up Jason! Jennora told him, he only laughed and threw his hands up in defeat. "So what are we doing today?" He asked happily. Jason looked up for a moment to see Katherina and felt the butterflies start in his stomach, making him sick. He quickly looked down at the floor before looking back up at Mikuo, Jennora and Chris. He noticed Lottie was there as well. "Hey sexy" He told her with a flirty smile. Only to get punched by his sister. "Ow.. Gosh." He said rubbing his arm.

Jennora smiled at Mikuo's compliment. "Of course I'm fun to be with." She said as she rocked herself back and forth, bumping into Mikuo on purpose. "I'm just so pretty." She said, sounding full of herself. It didn't last long though, "Nah, just kidding! But I hear I'm fun to be around!" She hoped she was, otherwise she'd have a lot of people person problems. The three P's. Fantastic.

Jennora did not like being picked up by her brother, and when he kissed her she wanted to smack him. Though she resisted the urge not too, instead she watched as others came out before answering Christopher's first remark to herself. "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?" She laughed at that. "How about we have a slumber party in my room tonight?" Jennora purposely made it sound very wrong

Jennora laughed at the look that Jason gave her and shook her head, looking around for a final attempt at finding something she wanted, though at this point it seemed like she couldn't find anything she wanted. Jennora was a super picky eater, so if there was nothing she liked, she wouldn't eat. Plain and simple.

Jennora turned to Mikuo and Jason. "If your willing to go I'll be ready in two hours. If any of you need me, I'll be in my room." She gave the two a smile and waved at Chris before taking a piece of bacon and heading back upstairs. She passed by the living room on her way and peaked over at Katherina's art piece. She leaned over the back of the couch and pet both Dyson and Reyna as she talked to Katherina. "I think it looks stunning. What are your plans today? She asked yawning into the back of the couch.

Dyson didn't like being squeezed to death so he bit his brother's hand. Not hard enough to leave a bark, but sure as hell hard enough to be dropped. Dyson saddly, wasn't a cat at the moment and landed hard on his ass. Though he walked it off like it was nothing. He spotted Reyna and made his way over to her. Not realizing that his large puppy ears were a bit long for him, he tripped over them each second.

When he finally got to the living room, he was standing right in front of the couch, he looked up at ow tall it was, and decided that he wouldn't hurt himself. Instead he pawed at Katherina's legs, making sure not to stratch her as he did. He turned his head for a moment to notice that Sapphire was on the other couch. He still hadn't told anyone that she was his sister, and nobody ever asked so Dyson didn't think it was a big deal. He wondered if she knew that the DNA she was given was his.

Dyson turned back to Katherina when he was magically picked up and placed in her lap. He quickly moved over to Reyna. He really liked the girl, but would never tell her in person, and he tried really hard not to show any signs of affection towards her in person as well.

Though right now... Was a completely different story. He licked her nose and around her mouth before nugging against her, as if to hug her. Being a cat, he was prepared for an attack, though some cats were friendly enough to play with him like this. He could always turn into a kitten as well though, but he liked being a puppy. That or a very large cat. Like a white tiger, or a baby white tiger. Those were his favorites.

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.

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.

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.
