[center]Image
By her who in this month (January) is born
No gem save garnets should be worn;
They will ensure her constancy,
True friendship, and fidelity.

The February-born shall find
Sincerity and peace of mind,
Freedom from passion and from care,
If they an amethyst will wear.

Who in this world of ours their eyes
In March first open shall be wise,
In days of peril firm and brave,
And wear a aquamarine to their grave.

She who from April dates her years,
Diamonds shall wear, lest bitter tears
For vain repentance flow; this stone,
Emblem of innocence, is known.

Who first beholds the light of day
In spring's sweet flowery month of May
And wears an emerald all her life
Shall be a loved and happy wife.

Who comes with summer to this earth,
And owes to June her hour of birth,
With ring of pearl on her hand
Can health, wealth, and long life command.

The glowing ruby shall adorn,
Those who in July are born;
Then they'll be exempt and free
From love's doubts and anxiety.

Wear a peridot or for thee,
No conjugal felicity;
The August-born without this stone,
`Tis said, must live unloved and lone.

A maiden born when September leaves
Are rustling in September's breeze,
A sapphire on her brow should bind
`Twill cure diseases of the mind.

October's child is born for woe,
And life's vicissitudes must know,
But lay an opal on her breast,
And hope will lull those woes to rest.

Who first comes to this world below
With drear November's fog and snow,
Should prize the topaz's amber hue,
Emblem of friends and lovers true.

If cold December gave you birth,
The month of snow and ice and mirth,
Place on your hand a turquoise blue;
Success will bless whatever you do.

—Gregorian Birthstone Poems


Birthstones, the beautiful radiant gems that are associated with each month of the year. For centuries, people thought that the gems were just there to admire for their beauty, but alas, they were wrong. 100 years ago, the elements like water and fire, the birthstones themselves, emotion, things of nature, and the essence life, have been mixed together to be the outcome of humans. But they weren't just any types of humans, they lived much longer than your average human. They also were stronger and controled elements. Each birthstone has heard bits and pieces about each other, but none have tried to contact one another. This changes when the courage filled birthstone of March(Aquamarine), wrote to the others inviting them to stay at her estate to get to know and learn more about each other~.

"Nice to meet you Michael, Peridot Birthstone of August. Birthstone of September...same stone as my namesake, Sapphire." her smile widened at the joke.


"Nice to meet you as well, it's also great to have mad friends such early on." He smiled and then turned to Yeo-reum who was eyeing down the tea before casually taking a sip as if it was cold juice.

"Ah! It is hot!"

Michael attempted to hold back a laugh by using his long sleeves to cover his mouth but it only worked for about five seconds. He let out a soft chuckle before apologizing. "I'm sorry, I shouldn't have laughed."

"I should probably also apologize to everyone for making the scene at dinner." she thinks for a moment, "Even Miss Poor Little Victim Me." she looks at both of them thinking, "Then maybe we could wander the grounds. I've never stayed at a place this big before. I'm kind of a small place person. We could talk. Get to know each other better."

"It's fine, I think most of us SORT OF understand what happened but if you wish to apologize just o get it off your conscience I understand as well. Also getting to know this place and each other is a brilliant idea, I also wish to see what exotic flora Aquamarine has here."

Yeo-reum starts for the other room to apologize but stops. "You know. I can apologize later. Why don't we walk the grounds together? I think it will help me...us get to know each other better and feel more comfortable with each other and the place." she looks at Michael, "It's okay to laugh. It was pretty stupid of me to drink it so fast. I was distracted. So go ahead and laugh." Yeo-reum remembers one more thing, "Oh... and just so you know, Sapphire can be a little clumsy and... just so you're not caught unaware, I sometimes forget things and I have a wee bit of a temper. I know that surprises you." Yeo-reum says laughing

Mary couldn't repress a sigh of relief at being handed the rose. It probably wasn't directly tied to her life-force or anything, but she still didn't feel like finding out that it was.

"That is puzzling." That was all Mary could think to say on the subject of perception of time and omniscient future friends. Quickly moving to a subject that didn't endanger her sanity Mary addressed his question. "I'd love to join everyone for diner."

Devan smiled. "Alright. Just take my hand and we can shadow travel there." He said. At least she isn't trying to kill me, or Ib. Devan thought. Then he realized something. He told Ib the same thing, when a fake copy of her mother came to lead her away. A flod of memories rushed through him, but only for a split second. Then he shook his head and said "Are you coming?"

Mary stepped forward hesitantly. She wasn't exactly keen on traveling through shadows. Then again, the first step toward burying the hatchet was trust. Besides, nothing was to be gained through hesitation and she did want to fit in with the others, Garry included. Nodding, Mary took his hand with a smile. "Alright, let's go."

Hopefully his ability wasn't anything like hers, otherwise this wouldn't be the most pleasant journey imaginable. Then again, her ability didn't allow for teleportation, so there it was. Mary wondered idly what the others could do. So far they seemed mostly based in darkness, though that wasn't saying much considering she only knew Garry's and her own elements.

"Alright." Devan smiled. He and Mary sank into their disappearing shadows. For about 5 seconds, everything went black. Then sounds of the dining room became distant, and it came closer and closer until...

"Done" devan announced. He stepped out of the dark corner of the room, a tiny bit dizzy from shadow traveling with his own shadow. That type of shadow travel takes more energy than using an object's shadow, especially when the process is done with another person. "Huh... I guess a few people are done..." Devan mused, at the fact that there are now less people.
