Personality:
{Creative, Doesn't Understand Somethings, Hardworking, Easy To Get Along With, Distant, Troublemaker}

Noah, he's very creative, he loves creativity, he loves art, and he loves poetry, those are the things that keeps him sane. Other than being creative another creative thing is music, there are different kinds and he loves it all. Sure some of the music might not be his taste but, it's still music. Nothings going to change that. Being in a band already fits that description. He loves to compare his creative personality with others and he's not afraid to show it. Other than being creative he sometimes won't understand things that he's not used to hearing. If someone says something that's confusing to him, he'll either ignore them or he'll ask what they mean by that. He's not acting dumb, he's just being himself. Confused.

When someone wants something done, he'll get it done. No matter where or how, he'll get it done. He will keep working until the work is done, and if everyone is still working, he'll find something else to do.

Biography

Place Of Origin:
Orlando, Florida, USA

Birth Date:
October 29

History:
All of his life Noah was either hurt, troubling or cared for, sadly there was more of the troubling than anything. Noah didn't hate most of his life but, somehow he loved it, even the bad things he loved. Maybe it made him the person that he sees in the mirror today, or maybe it made him as messed up as he was before.

Starting the month of October 29, he was everyone's little surprise but, he was still the first to be born. As he grew up his childhood wasn't at all bad, he had a baby sister that was 3 and he just turned 6 he was happy he had someone to look after and protect as they both grew up. At the age 7 the happiness suddenly stopped when Noah was hit by a car while playing ball with a couple of his friends. Everyone thought it was over for him but that wasn't the fact, Noah fought through all the treatments and the painful surgeries. After a few years of getting back on his feet, he never really wanted to go outside that much anymore and he didn't. Whenever he did it was because, he had to watch his sister or play with his cousin while the grownups talked.

As he turned 10 the Jones family added a new addition to the family his brother that was 4 when he was 10. After a year or two school was out and he had to spend the night at his cousins house for the summer. That was when the abusing had started, he was constantly his for doing nothing or hit for doing something. His cousin couldn't do anything about it, even if he was older than him. Sadly he had to live through all that for half of summer and told no one about not even his parents and siblings. It was hard for him to trust others and he tried to avoid people that came up to talk to him.

Ever since that day he had started getting into trouble. Stealing his parents car, stealing things from the mall, selling things he wasn't supposed to sell, and just hanging around the wrong crowd. It was as if the monster inside him was telling him to do this and that and that everything he does will bring him true happiness. But, it didn't, and he still continued down that wrong and horrible path. He didn't let anyone pick on him, he didn't let anyone bring him down, it was as if he was someone else, he wasn't the Noah everyone knew and that was when he pushed everyone away, he didn't want help, he didn't need to talk, he just wanted to be happy for once but, he never was, so he continued to 'have his fun'.

At this point at the age of 17 he started a band with his cousin and two other friends, and that's what made him happy as he grew up, his music, his band, and his fans. Sure, drugs caught up to him, and he was blinded by somethings but, he fell in love with the perfect girl, and somewhere in his heart he couldn't stay there. So he told her he couldn't keep up with it and he didn't deserve it, he could sort of feel the hurt in her eyes and now he's a mess as usual.

Family Tree
Father
Mother
Sister
Brother

Happiest Memory:
Spending time with everyone he has came to know.

Saddest Memory:
Pushing the people that cared about him away.




Theme Song




Inner Universe | Origa
Angely i demony kruzhili nado mnoj
Rassykhali ternii i vechnye puti
Ne znaet schast'je tol'ko tot,
Kto ego zova ponyat' ne smog...

Naljubuites', naljubuites'
Aeria gloris, Aeria gloris

I am Calling Calling now, Spirits rise and falling
Soboj ostat'sya dol'she...
Calling Calling, in the depths of longing
Soboj ostat'sya dol'she...

Stand alone... Where was life when it had a meaning...
Stand alone... Nothing's real anymore and...

...Beskonechnyj beg...
Poka zhiva ya mogu starat'sya na letu ne upast',
Ne razuchit'sya mechtat'...lyubit'...
...Beskonechnyj beg...

Calling Calling, For the place of knowing
There's more that what can be linked
Calling Calling, Never will I look away
For what life has left for me
Yearning Yearning, for what's left of loving

Soboj ostat'sya dol'she...
Calling Calling now, Spirits rise and falling
Soboj ostat'sya dol'she...
Calling Calling, in the depth of longing
Soboj ostat'sya dol'she...

English:
Angels and demons were circling above me
through the thorns to the stars
The only one who doesn't know happiness
is the one who couldn't understand its call

I am Calling Calling now, Spirits rise and falling
To stay myself longer...
Calling Calling, in the depth of longing
To stay myself longer...

Stand alone... Where was life when it had a meaning...
Stand alone... Nothing's real anymore and...

...Endless run...
While I'm alive, I can try not to fall while flying,
Not to forget how to dream... how to love
...Endless run...

Calling Calling, For the place of knowing
There's more that what can be linked
Calling Calling, Never will I look away
For what life has left for me
Yearning Yearning, for what's left of loving

To stay myself longer...
Calling Calling now, Spirits rise and falling
To stay myself longer...
Calling Calling, in the depth of longing
To stay myself longer...


Crawling | Linkin Park
[Chorus]
Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming, confusing
This lack of self control I fear is never ending
Controlling

I can't seem
To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence I'm convinced that there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
So insecure

[Chorus]

Discomfort, endlessly has pulled itself upon me
Distracting, reacting
Against my will I stand beside my own reflection
It's haunting how I can't seem.

To find myself again
My walls are closing in
(Without a sense of confidence I'm convinced that there's just too much pressure to take)
I've felt this way before
So insecure

[Chorus]

Crawling in my skin
These wounds, they will not heal
Fear is how I fall
Confusing, confusing what is real

There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface
Consuming, confusing
(Confusing what is real)
This lack of self control I fear is never ending
Controlling
(Confusing what is real)

"The hell." Noah groaned. He held on to his head like someone was beating at it,"Dammit." He waited for a little while before opening up his eyes and looking up at the unfamiliar ceiling and sighed. "That's it. Never trust strangers." Looking around at his surroundings he smirked. "Hm, I take that back." Running a hand through his messy dark colored hair. He had wondered where the hell he was and how the hell he ended up in a placed like this. He wasn't worried, he wasn't sad, he was confused, and absent minded about the situation he was in. "Why the hell am I here and where the hell am I?" This was far from looking like a cheap hotel room but, it was close to an apartment so he assumed so. Looking over to the side, he grabbed a letter on the nightstand next to the bed and started to read the letter.

"Gift of Innocence?" Nodding, he looked around once again,"So, I'm staying here. This is kind of cool." He slammed the letter back on the table and decided he'd get up and try to figure out what this gift would be. When he got up completely his head had started to spin which meant he got up a little too fast and stood there until the sick feeling stopped. "I need a drink." He said in an uncaring voice. He didn't care about the sick feeling but, he needed to drain it with something. Opening the door out of the bedroom to the living room and kitchen, he went into the kitchen and looked for something to drink. Finding a few things of alcohol, he took one of the bottles and opened it. A few minutes later he had finished the drink and threw the bottle in the trash.

Sighing he ran his hands through his hair a few more times before he started walking towards the bathroom. It was up to date and everything. Man, who ever did this deserves a trophy. Noah thought. Walking back to the bedroom he got out some clothes and went ahead and took a shower. After he was finished showering he put the clothes he picked out on and put his shoes on. Deciding that he should check what was on the other side of that door. Opening up the door to his apartment, he peeped his head outside to look all directioons before fully walking out the door and into the hallway.

Sighing quietly as he walked up on a group of people wondering if they had experienced what he had. Guessing so' he smiled,"Hello strangers." Shoving his hands inside his pockets, he leaned against the wall using his back as the support.

Image"You look so pretty, Grey! I didn't know you knew how to dress!" Rosalina was shocked to see Grey the way she dressed, she actually looked like one of the most put together people now, a business woman to be more exact. "Well, I didn't actually put this together, I was the only outfit in my closet." Rosalina squinted her eyes, puckered out his lips, and then tapped her right cheek. "Maybe you can't dress so they're trying to help you!" As she spoke she over exaggerated her Hispanic accent over her British, "Oh, and I'm Rosalina." Telling the boy that Grey had introduced herself to. "Welcome strangers.""Another person!" Her voice was cheery to the voice that had entered behind her, Sounds familiar. Shrugging her shoulders at the thought all her hair flipped to the left as she looked over her shoulder to see who is was. Noah! Rosalina quickly reached out and grabbed Grey's arm squeezing it tightly. With huge eyes she looked up at a wide mouth Grey who was about to speak. "That's my ex." Telling her before Grey had the chance to speak.

Rosalina had no clue what to do, she hasn't seen him since he left What the hell could he have lost? She could understand she receiving something for a lost, but not him! He always did whatever he wanted without a care in the world, but because of him she had lost so much: her home, her money, her family, and so much more. Once in her life she had loved him with every amount of her being, she would have done anything for him, which she did. She started doing drugs and drinking and even ran away from home, something she had thought was the best thing for her, but now she knew better. In her mind they were going to be together forever, that he loved her as much as she loved him; she was wrong. He was self absorbed like all other guys in bands, all his fame went immediately to his big fat head. Noah had become all about himself and what he wanted, she just became his second best.

She had wished she had left sooner and had been the one who broke it off, but she had loved him and had hoped that their love would help work out all their problems; it hadn't. Never really getting an answer why he was leaving she assumed he wanted better or something new, but all she did know was it left her heart broken and broke and alone.

"Sorry." Letting go of Grey she noticed a red spot she had left, "Sorry." Repeating so she glanced between Grey and Noah. "I'll be right back." Her voice sounded elsewhere as she turned away from the two with a deep breath of unsureness. You'll be living with him... again, so be peaceful Rosalina. Walking over to him she arched her back and tried her best to give a smile. He looked rough and edgy like the last time she saw him He's still sexy... "So you got brought her too I see." See looked over his whole body as he rested against the wall, he seemed so laid back like he had got kidnapped before. She didn't know what to say to him, well she did, but this wasn't the time or place and she wanted to be civil. "It seems like you have changed to much." It was both a statement with a pinch of her joking causing her to give a small awkward laugh. When he left she was hoping for better, but he still looked like the band member with dark hair that he was to lazy to fix. After he left her she was on the bottom, a girl that was always drunk and would do anything for drugs, but in the past few years she changed her ways and started building her way back up for herself. "I'm now working as a fashion assistant at a big fashion industry, if I'm lucky I'll be designing soon." He might not of cared, but she wanted him to know how she's made it after he left, how much better she was without him now and how he still seemed like shit. "I hope everything's good for you too."

He thought it was a little better not knowing anyone and he hoped he didn't just jinx himself. "So you got brought here too I see." Looking over at where the familiar voice was coming from. Well, I'll be damned. He jinxed himself after all, he couldn't help but, smile. She looked better, healthier, he was pretty happy to see her. Well, one side was happy to see her, the other side wanted to run away and hide his face, or at least try to.

"Yup, I still have no damn clue as to why." Being a bit surprised at how she had managed to get unhooked from all of the stuff he had put her through. But, even after he left he never did stop, it was impossible for him. Whenever he had tried he would go crazy without drugs or anything. "It seems like you have changed to much." He smiled again,"Ha, me? No. Now, you? Yes." Looking her up and down, this was one of his fears at play, seeing someone he used to be with. He didn't like the feelings that came with it.

Hating how all those bad feelings he felt after he had left her came back to haunt him. "I'm now working as a fashion assistant at a big fashion industry, if I'm lucky I'll be designing soon." Noah made a that's good face, he actually tried to mean it. "That's good, I'm happy for you." He is still in a band well, he was. He didn't know where this place would get him, and he didn't know if any one would go looking for him. Probably no one since, he practically pushed all the people who loved and cared about him away. Just because, of his bad habits and lifestyle. It was very sad but, true. "I hope everything's good for you too." Noah thought about it for a little bit, and everything wasn't good for him. "Everything's going fi-." No can't say that.. He couldn't say fine because, nothing was fine. He decided to shrug,"Everything's managed."

Yeah, he's managed living life knowing that nothing would come good out of it but, drugs and partying. He was still a mess, and he's barely managed to admit that. Hell he wanted to just forget all the wrong he had done so, he wouldn't have to realie a damn thing. But, if this Gift of Innocence would help him figure that out. Then so be it.

Image"Everything's going fi-." He quickly cut of. "Everything's managed." She smiled at him starting over, At least he didn't lie. "I've changed some, but I still do some of the stupid things you've gotten me into." With a smile she continued. "Drinking is fun, partying is great, and the hang overs still suck." Another awkward laugh slipped up her throat and passed her lips. It was strange telling him that some of her old lifestyle still remained, but she had the feeling to tell him so she did. "That's actually how Nick found me. I had just left a club near my home and in a drunk state wondered into an alley where he afford me help." That was pretty much the same way she had met Noah. One night when she wanted to have fun from her good girl lifestyle she had snuck out and went to a concert he had been playing at. She had gotten drunk and some man was hitting on her and wouldn't leave her alone so Noah had come to her rescue, and ever since that night she had loved him.

Loved. The thought want as beautiful as it once been, it was a bittersweet sensation for her to think about now. Glancing down at her hand to see her tattoo that said endless love it made her honestly smile from the memory it came from. Of course she had gotten it when she was with Noah, it was the first tattoo she ms ever gotten, and boy did it hurt like crap. At first she was afraid to get it because of the pain, but he talked her into it telling her whenever she saw it it would remind of him, which it had. Seeing the tattoo always took her back to the trailer she had been in where she got the tattoo for free from one of his trashy old friends that was rumored to have overdosed a few months ago. Over the years she had even thought about getting it removed, but for some reason she couldn't, she just couldn't let go of her mental bond with him.

With a silent laugh she looked up at him and began running her fingers through her hair, a habit of hers when she was nervous. "Since you haven't changed much I assume you're still traveling, which must be fun." Gosh, we were always moving. When they were together with him being in a band they were always on the road and always moving, to her it was both good and bad. She loved to see new places and do new things, but she did miss the consistency of having a stable home to always be in. She hated the tour buses or other moving vehicles they'd stay in for some time, at first it had been fun, but the fun went away quickly. "I remember the trips we use to take."pause"for the most part they were fun." A majority of there trips consisted of getting high, drunk, and partying, but there was good times. Like once they stayed close to a beach and they both skinny dipping together at midnight in the moonlight; it had been a very fun night. As she thought her smile faded away into the sorrow of losing it all, the realization that he was here infront of her hit her hard and she began to sob without meaning to. She couldn't help the flow of tears, they just rushed from her eyes like a flood from a water fall. I love him so much and he couldn't careless! Her love for him was still deep inside of her, but she knew he could careless, she just knew it. She began to cough and choke on the air as she sobbed and then her knees gave out causing her to fall to the floor. I'm sorry! She thought and tried hard to say, but couldn't get the words out.

"I've changed some, but I still do some of the stupid things you've gotten me into." Smiling when she had said that, he really did enjoy those times they'd party together. But, it's all different now. Since he had left. "Drinking is fun, partying is great, and the hang overs still suck." He still hadn't gotten used to the hang overs but, other than that drinking and partying is still fun. Just yesterday he was at a party, it lasted still 2 o'clock but, hell a party could stop at anytime. As long it was not boring.

"That's actually how Nick found me. I had just left a club near my home and in a drunk state wondered into an alley where he afford me help." He wondered who Nick was but, he only shrugged and guessed that he worked at this place. Remembering the time when they had met, it was actually at a perfect time as well. It might haven't been quick but, he did fall in love with her at some point but, then he had a sudden anxiety about the love thing.

So, he just questioned if he really was good enough for her. He was just a messed up druggie who was in a band, he didn't think she deserved to deal with that. Plus, he knew he was the reason, he brought her through all of the things he left her with. "Since you haven't changed much I assume you're still traveling, which must be fun." He nodded,"Yup. Still traveling, it's tiring but, yeah it's fun. Hadn't slept good until today."

It was true, he had less time to sleep but, he had to suck it up and do it for his fans, and his career. Running his hand through his hair,"I remember the trips we use to take." Smiling when she paused, he nodded. "for the most part they were fun." They were fun, he couldn't help but, think about all the things they had done together. Those times were the best but, now seeing her here in front of her, hearing that she had improved her life when he had left, really bothered him in some way.

His heart jumped slightly as he saw the tears come out of her eyes. "Rosa-" Standing up completely off the wall, he looked around and looked down at Rosalina,"Um." He really wanted to make her feel better without a care as to why she was crying. He knew that it was somewhat his fault and he knew somewhere deep inside him, he stilled cared and loved about the girl in front of him. "Look Rosalina," He knelt down on one knee,"I know it is going to be hard but, hear me out. However I made you feel, try your best to forget about it." He wasn't the one for words in this type of situation. So he kept quiet and if it didn't work then can't say he didn't try.

Image"Rosa-" As she was on her knees she rolled over to sit on the ground then pulled her knees to her chest as she sobbed. "Um." Looking up at Noah she frowned of disappointment. He was such an idiot, a waste of her time, but she loved him. "Look Rosalina," as he spoke he knelt down on one knee next to her, "I know it is going to be hard but, hear me out. However I made you feel, try your best to forget about it." She could feel her heart drop deep into her stomach with those words, she knew he was trying to show he cared, but he was failing greatly. "It's not that easy," she snapped at him, How could he be so stupid? "You know I loved you more than anything! I would have done anything for you, but you repaid me by leaving without reason-" she felt like screaming louder, but instead calmed her voice at him, "I still love you, and I probably always will. No matter how hard it is I have to learn to live with that." Running her fingers through her hair like she always did when nervous she rested against his knee and shut her eyes. She wished he never had left, she wanted to be with him still and still suffered from him leaving. "You have to live with hurting me though," she told him as her head was rested on his knee, "I loved you more than anyone could ever love you and you left." Her voice seemed so lifeless.

On his knew she broke out into another outburst of sons from pain, Why do I have to do this now? Trying to calm herself down she started taking in deep long breaths repetitively. Doing it over and over again she could feel her personality change, something she had taught herself to do over time. It was like her way of cooping with all the pain; if she could become someone else she wouldn't have to deal with her real problems. Rosalina considered this her self defense against life, something she'd be lost without. She stopped her crying and just rested for a few seconds before pulling back and looking at Noah with tears in her eyes and a weak smile. "I-" she wasn't sure how to respond what had happened and to her luck Nick began talking.

Image"Good, okay folks it's time to go meet your new boss! Scar you can lead the boys first, I'll stay behind the girls to make sure they're protected." When he finished talking her attention went back to Noah. Whipping her eyes she gave him a huge grin. "You're the only person I know here making us automatic best friends," she began, "this time you just can't get up and leave me either, Noah." Kissing his cheek she then pulled back to look at him. "How do I look though," she asked, "I can't make a bad first impression. You know how I am with impressions! Are my eyes red or puffy? Do I look pretty?" Rosalina's appearance was important to her and if she was going to meet the Benefactor she wanted to look the best she could, she had to look good! Looking him over she smiled, "By the way you look perfect, very presentable!"

Scarlet moved her head to the side at the sight of all the people talking to each other. Sylvester had given them a report on every single one of them, as he always did with new recruits, so she wasn't surprised to see some of the interactions that were happening just a few feet away. She eyed everyone that seemed to be doing their own thing, it was then when she saw a much smaller and shorter figure roaming the the room trying to stay unnoticed, 'Kaylee...' Scar said in a low voice, her blonde hair could be seen behind Rosalina and Noah who seemed to be too deep into their conversation that they didn't notice when the twelve year old was eavesdropping on their conversation. kaylee then moved to Jasper, whom she saw being rude to someone else, she elbowed the young tall man purposely, "sorry about that" she tried saying in a sweet and endearing tone that yelled sarcasm all over, one that she had picked from Scar most likely. The young girl then stuck her tongue out to the young man and moved next to Zeus who the young girl thought seemed to be nice enough.

Scarlet couldn't help but to grin at the little girl's actions but her smile quickly vanished as soon as the soon to be teenager turned to look at her. Scarlet immediately changed her mood and looked at Kaylee scornfully as she always did when the young girl was trying to get in trouble. Kaylee, knowing she did not want to make Scar even madder, dropped her shoulders and started walking towards the red haired beauty who seemed far from happy with her arrival. She looked like a child about to be scolded by her mother, she had her eyes on the floor as she walked slowly towards her. Finally she was at hands reach from Scar, "I'm sorry" the young girl said. Scarlet moved her hand towards the little girl's head ruffling her long blonde hair, "Kaylee... you know that your Dad doesn't like it when you are playing around with the new recruits".

It was then when they were interrupted by an older woman, Rosemary. She rushed her way in though the stairs and was having an agitated respiration as she had probably ran to search for Kaylee as she did so often being her Nanny. Finally, she spotted the young girl who was next to Scarlet, "Miss Crom...well" she said trying to catch her breath, breathless almost. "Rosy..." said the young girl in return and now hiding behind Scar not wanting to continue with her piano lessons. Rosemary waited for a few minuted trying to regain composure, Scarlet did not say anything and waited until she spoke again, "Ms. Romanov" to which Scarlet replied immediately, "Just Scarlet, Rosemary" she said annoyed though not being disrespectful. Rosemary was about to speak again when Scarlet cut her off, "that will not be necessary, I was about to tell her to return to her lessons" she said dismissing Rosemary for the moment. "But..." Kaylee started, "No buts, I know you want to come but you know you can't. I'll come and fetch you up as soon as I can ok?". Kaylee without second thoughts knowing she would keep her word simply replied, "Okay..." and Scarlet smiled at the young girl before she headed back.

As soon as Kaylee was out of her sight, Scarlet counted the number of people in the room again. Finally she counted the number she needed for the guys with the new addition of the last guy she needed, who looked just as baffled and confused as most of them, and she found Nick finally coming back with the last girl. She was about to make a remark on his, again, delayed arrival but she saw him answering the phone, Sylvester at the end of the line most likely. Finally, after hanging up he spoke again, “Good, okay folks it’s time to go meet your new boss! Scar you can lead the boys first, I’ll stay behind the girls to make sure they’re protected.” With that he winked at the girls followed by a smile directed at her but Scarlet couldn't help but to role her eyes, "Like you had to tell me twice..."

Finally Scarlet moved in front only turning back once, "You wanted some answers and answers is what you'll get. she paused for a moment to look at everyone and then turned to Nick, "You heard mister Claus here" she said calling him by the nickname she had given him as soon as she heard his name was Nicholas, "the guys come with me first." And with that she moved in front of everyone being careful to see that all of them followed. "The elevator doesn't work" she said before anyone was clever enough to ask why they couldn't simply go on the elevator, what Nick had already explained a couple of times; besides it was something that some of them, like the new guy were unaware of. They had to go up the stairs up to the sixth floor, Scarlet did not say anything as they moved their way up. She knew that Sylvester would be waiting and was starting to get impatient as he had called for Nick for an update, besides she wanted to get the empowering done as soon as possible as it would make her job easier.

Scarlet could care less if anyone complained at the stairway, once they were in the sixth floor she turned around to see if all of them were behind and to see if Nick was following behind though she thought that he would probably stayed longer behind flirting all the way up. Scarlet moved slowly towards Sylvester's office, she barged in the room where the door was already opened, she didn't see the point in knocking had the door been closed, either way she made her way in his office. "Here they are" she said signaling everyone, "you really know how to pick em" she said before she did as always, she leaned against the wall letting Sylvester do all the talking.

Nicholas was enjoying his view from the rear eyeing the pretty girls that he sees yet cautious to Scarlet’s eyes. He was a bit startled by Grey skipping over to him and hooking her right arm to his left, yet he smiled at her as she introduced herself as Grey holding her free hand in front of him. “ …and thank you for kidnapping me” she said while giggling at the end. Nick had a hunch that the girl was not being quite truthful with her laughter as her smile was bigger and her laugh sounded a bit forced, yet he decided to go along with it, thinking to himself, ”Okay, here we go girl number two! I’m on a roll today!” He shook Grey’s hand gently saying in a smooth voice, “Ah how rude of me I don’t believe I had introduced myself very well back there so sorry. I had some business to take care of but no matter. I am Nicholas Truman, though call me Nick or Nicky if you wish.” He smiled at her and looked into her eyes as they walked up saying, “Oh you’re very welcome. I’ve always been the expert at catching the best fish in the sea. Though I apologize for having you walk four flights of stairs. Like I said before there is no elevator.” Nick continued to flaunt and flirt with Grey and look at the other women until they reached the Benefactor’s office.




The Benefactor leaned back on his desk as the new recruits slowly gathered inside his office. First the men appeared and then the women. As the Benefactor studied them closely without staring, he couldn’t help but notice how disheveled, confused, and even angry they looked. One of them had even called out "So, you're the asshole that kidnapped me...who the hell do you think you are?" The Benefactor wasn’t fazed by the anger that snapped out of the young boy. In fact he had to admit he was very straightforward which would be useful to him.

”Poor things,” he thought. ”They must’ve gone through some pretty rough times only to be brought to another adventure of their lives. No matter. It is now that they will begin their possible transformation.”

The Benefactor then stood up proud and as tall as he could clearing his throat and then greeting his new recruits with a “Welcome.” “My name is Sylvester Cromwell but I am usually addressed as The Benefactor. Although some of you may know that from reading the letter. Before we begin, I should let you know that should you desire to return to your rooms, the room number is placed in the back of the letter. If you by chance did not read your letter in your room or did not bring it with you and don’t remember your room, I will give it to you before we give you a tour of the places you will be working in the town.” Sylvester could see that some people seemed to look up or raise their eyebrows as though he had guessed correctly that some people haven’t touched or known about the letter. No matter, there is always an incident such as this one.

The Benefactor motioned to the two recruiters who had accompanied them to move aside as they always have done. He then motioned for the new recruits to come closer and he put his hands towards them palms facing forward. He wore white gloves that matched his formal business attire of a black suit, pants, and shoes. The room seemed to stir a bit and a wind picked up that shook some objects such as a lamp by the corner and some books in Sylvester’s shelf but not so hard that it would knock things to the floor. A faint glow came from underneath Sylvester and the recruits. It was obscure because of the many recruits, but there was a light sea green spell circle with intricate and ancient symbols. The same glow surrounded the people who may or may not have been a bit frightened but the Benefactor reassured, “Don’t worry and don’t be afraid. He is right now observing you and trying to gather information of your pasts, of your fears, of your strengths, and of sorrows. He is the one that will bestow your powers which you will utilize in your work. These powers are your Gifts of Innocence. You must now open your hearts, minds, and souls, and accept the Gift of Innocence as parts of you now.”

The glow emanating from the spell circle grew warm and surrounded the individuals as the Benefactor closed his eyes and concentrated. He could feel his strength diminishing bit by bit until the spell was complete. He doubled back and tripped but Nicholas ran to catch him in time.

“Thank you Nicholas. I’ll be fine don’t worry. Just be sure to fill in what I need you to fill in.”

“Sure sir. Hey wait, what do you need me to fill in?”

“You’ve already agreed Nicholas. You’ll see.”




The Benefactor then proceeded to walk towards each individual to inform them of their powers and their tasks. He first walked to Rosalina and said, “Rosalina, you’ve lost money and your life has gone in all sorts of directions, but now you can help others who were put in the same situation. You are the Loaner who has the power to produce blank checks to loan money to whoever needs it. The wielder of the blank check is able to create blank checks that can be at any dollar amount. They can be given to anyone poor or rich or somewhere in between as long as they meet the terms. It will be agreed upon by customers that there will be a set date for payment and a 1% interest is to be expected. The customer chooses the exact date and time for the payment but it cannot be altered no matter the situation. You will be working very closely with an old friend of yours.”

The Benefactor walked over to Noah and said, ”Noah, you’ve abused drugs and even conjured your own, sometimes bringing others with you to your downfall. Now you will be a potions maker which is like a drug dealer only your potions are made through your gift of magic medicine. You will brew potions that will solve problems that the customer will have. Materials and the guide book will be provided by the Benefactor. However, the medicines are still drugs, which mean they have to be taken at certain dosages and in a limited amount of time. Make sure you take some funds with Rosalina.”

After talking to Noah, the Benefactor moved on to Hailey, Aradia, and Grey. “All three of you will be counselors though you differ depending on your power and experiences. Hailey and Aradia you’ve been best friends but the friendship hasn’t been exactly comforting and supportive has it? Hailey you will be the Empowerment Counselor, taking those who feel as though they are weak and help them take charge into their lives. You were given power to “take charge” because you have been used by another and have felt helpless. You will tell people to recite a mantra to help them take charge into their lives. “I am powerful. My actions do have meaning. I will take charge and control my destiny.”This mantra when recited helps the user to feel empowerment. The user can take charge in his or her life to the point where he/she is intimidating enough to make other people do as told. The mantra only lasts for twenty-four hours, but it can be said over and over again.

Aradia, you will be the Satisfaction Counselor, taking those who feel as though they are not satisfied with their life and are jealous of others. You will help them turn their jealousy around and replace it with feelings of wanting to know and understand the object of their jealousy more. You were given this power because you have felt jealous and have taken out your jealousy on another person. There is a mantra for this that you will teach. “I am satisfied. There is enough for me. I will turn jealousy into devotion and become a true friend instead.” This mantra when recited helps the user become more devoted to becoming a true friend rather than a jealous poisonous friend. Like the take charge mantra, it only lasts for twenty-four hours, but it can be said over and over again.

Grey, you will be the Death/Suicide Counselor who will try to help and understand victims of depression due to death and suicides. In order to understand your patients you were given the gift of empathy which allows you to feel the pain of your patients emotionally, physically, and mentally. You have experienced the feeling of guilt due to obliviousness. Your empathy is not limited to her patients however. You can also feel the pain of others around you when listening intently, usually asking others “Tell me, I’ll listen and try to understand” in order to activate empathy.

You three will be working very closely as counselors so I hope you get along nicely. The Benefactor said giving a warm smile to the ladies.”

He moved on to Zeus and informed him about his role. “Zeus, you will be working with the counselors as well with your role being the Psychologist. You will help people recover from traumatic experiences by permanently erase the painful memories of your patients. You have been sexually assaulted by other women and are always haunted by it, so now you can help others ease their pain by erasing their memory. However, in exchange you must peer into the memories of his patients and erase a happy and equivalent memory. He may use this power outside of work, but the people must be willing to have at least the bad memory erased for it to work.

He turned to Fiona and Alton to tell them about their roles. “You both will be Animal Rescuers and Trainers as you both have witnessed and or experienced pain. Fiona, you will be a friend to the animals, able to befriend animals easily and having them listen to your commands, as though they understand you completely. Friend of the Animals is given to someone who has been tortured by the various cruel deeds done on animals. You will show them a better life through taking care of them and training them in the special Animal Training facilities provided by the Benefactor.

Alton, you will help Fiona rescue animals from their various dangerous situations. To aid you, you will have the ability to not feel any pain, for you have been abused too many times without reason. It should be noted that the effect of feeling no pain lasts both in and out of the job. Make sure however that you rest periodically."

The Benefactor decided that since he just told the animal Rescuers their roles, he should designate the rescuer of people. “Forgive me, is it Jang or Jang Hyun? I have never been the best with Asian names. Anyway, you will also be a rescuer but of people with the gift of resurrection. You have lost many people in your life that you have loved through cruel fate, so now you can help others get that second chance of living. Just note that the people you resurrect will have their lives changed in ways that you need to discover on your own.”

Next he went on to another Asian to get the awkward names over with. “Another one ahh…Ma—ko—to? Anyways, you have been running away from a past of killings, being in the Mafia, and other wrong doings and want to get another chance under a new identity. You will allow people that chance as well. Under the guise of a prison guard, you will have the ability of a reset button, the chance to improve their current lives by allowing them to go back and fix the point in their lives that they think ruined them. Look in your hands and you will see that you have a literal Reset Button that has knobs that change the date and time displayed on it. A person can change it to whatever time and date they want to go back to. After they are done fixing their problem they are transported back in the new present There are however limitations as you will figure out."

He turned to Harper and said, “You’ve been in a lot of raping and prostitution business haven’t you? You feel worthless thinking that being a whore is your only worth and you’ve even panicked about that job of yours haven’t you? Don’t answer the call. You have another home now. You can help others by being the Empowerer. You are similar to Hailey in that you will help others get up from their sulking, agony, and lack of confidence. You will guide those who were lost, thrown away, and shunned by society to a new direction in life. Your Gift of Innocence, "Listen Well," enables you to allow the person she is talking to listen and obey her advice and commands. There are however, limitations to this power as the person must be able to actually hear it. Unlike the others you will search out those in the town rather than have your clients directed to you. We must always remember there are those who do not wish to actively change their fates, as you should know from experience.”

He turned to Jasper, the man who had spoken up to the Benefactor, and said, “I am someone who knows that you were blamed of murder incorrectly due to misunderstanding. You accuse me of kidnapping but it is merely a misunderstanding as I am helping you as you were at your lowest point. So you want to find the truth of things and you shall as a detective with the gift of Psychometry. It allows you to touch an object or person to see the recent past or future. However, note that you will not be given any indication whether it had happened in the past or will happen in the future.”

The Benefactor made sure to be more open and comforting when approaching Novia knowing that she will be more distrusting than the others. “Novia do not fear. Although I know that you are not legal here, let it be assured that your secret is safe with us and that I am not here to deport you. In fact come see me some time and I have connection that might help you get citizenship if you so desire. But in regards to your job, I know you are a bright person, yet you have been held back by poverty. Therefore you will be the Negotiator, negotiating with various salesmen for needed goods. If any of the workers or I need something we will turn to you for your negotiation skills will be so amazing it will be as though they cannot refuse. You will persuade them with “Do we have an accord?” and the item is yours! I trust that you are smart enough to know the correct amount to negotiate for and will give her a budget to abide by.

Sylvester made sure to hurry since he can tell that people were getting impatient and from the corner of his eye he could tell Jasper was itching to get out of here. “Finally Daniel, the man who was supposed to have been a father. I’m so sorry about the miscarriage and your wife. Trust me, I know how it feels to lose your significant other.” The Benefactor looked off in space about after he said that, thinking about…Clarissa… He shook his head to get back to reality knowing he had to continue and said, “Er Sorry. Anyway, you will be a Fertility Specialist, being able to let others have children the way they want them to be and at any time they wish for the baby to develop. The clients will also be able to pick specific traits for their unborn child. It should be noted that you can only induce pregnancy on willing women. And I would advise you please, do not make any of my staff pregnant. It would be very troublesome to have many little children even though Kaylee would love to have siblings.”

The Benefactor then walked to the front of the room pausing a bit to catch his breath from all of the talking and then finally opening his mouth to speak. “Nick I believe it is time for you to fill them in on what I cannot fill in, your power and Scarlet would you like to do so or as always leave it to mystery? Of course Nick you cannot refuse,” the Benefactor ended with a smile.
Nick sighed but he knew he had no choice so he stood in front of the crowd and said, “As you all know, I am a recruiter but I have the power of persuasion. I…used to not be able to commit to anything. I have so many jobs it’s hard to count, I have had many girlfriends that I haven’t had the courage to commit to, and I…” Nick paused but the Benefactor urged him to go on. “I left my fiancé at the altar. I couldn’t do it. I…I ran because I was too afraid to commit to something I wasn’t sure of. However, the Benefactor found me and gave me this power. Now I’m able to make commitments with ease. If I agree to something someone asks me to I will actually be able to do it! Though it goes the same with others. Just be careful, if I ask you to do something and you agree, you can’t run away and you have to go through with it.” As Nick finished he sighed having said this story to many new recruits to rile them up.

The Benefactor then stood in front of Nick and asked, “Any more questions?”

ImageShe liked where she was, but of course she had to follow the others even though the desire wasn't there. "Rosalina," hearing her name to turned to the owner of the voice, "when you get done... meet me in line." Nodding her head with a big smile she watched as the girl skipped away to Nick and then looked back at Noah. "I think this is where we separate." With a sheepish smile she placed her hands on the ground to help push herself to her feet. The confusion about how she felt about Noah, she loved him, but at the same time there was resentment and hate. Rosa knew she'd forgive him though, him being around her made her want to forgive him, but a small voice told her not to. She sighed as she took Noah's arm and helped him up. "I'll see you in a second!" Scurrying away from him she dashed to Grey's side in silence as they walked up the stairs. I'm going to die! She walked a lot, but she didn't like to walk up so many stairs. She wanted to complain so bad as she forced herself up all the flights, but restrained from it.

When walking into what she assumed was the Benefactor's office her lower jaw dropped, How lovely! The room was so large and big and floor of decorations, What a lovely vase! Is her thought as she walked in to see a white vase with floral design on it sitting on a oak table. She touched the vase, So smooth. With out meaning to she stroked to hard causing the vase to fall begin falling. She tried her best to stop it, fumbling so with her hands, but in the end it crashed with a loud pow! "Oops! With the crash she slowly pushed through people until she was to Noah's side. "Hiya!" She said quietly to him with a small wave to his side. When the Benefactor took a stand in front of them all she let her eyes prance over to his direction. He's kinda cute. With the thought she did cheek him out as well as listen. He watched Nicholas and Scarlet move from the group over away as the Benefactor placed his hands out in front of him, Nice gloves. With his hands out the room caught a soft glow, warmth, and a light breeze. What's going on? As the air blew she used both of her hands to hold it from flying around in the relaxing type state the setting was. As the warmth took over she shut her eyes feeling calm. “Don’t worry and don’t be afraid. He is right now observing you and trying to gather information of your pasts, of your fears, of your strengths, and of sorrows. He is the one that will bestow your powers which you will utilize in your work. These powers are your Gifts of Innocence. You must now open your hearts, minds, and souls, and accept the Gift of Innocence as parts of you now.” Open up, He? Are these gifts from God? Her eyes were already shut and she took in the warmth of the glow. Through every inch of her being did she feel the warmth invading her, causing her to full completely open with it and herself. The warmth didn't last as long as she wished, it faded and left her feeling different perhaps. Opening her eyes she watched Nick and the Benefactor slightly converse.

The Benefactor then walked towards her surprisingly, Why is he coming to me, Feeling a little nervous her hand was back being encased in her hair. “Rosalina, you’ve lost money and your life has gone in all sorts of directions, but now you can help others who were put in the same situation. You are the Loaner who has the power to produce blank checks to loan money to whoever needs it. The wielder of the blank check is able to create blank checks that can be at any dollar amount.

It will be agreed upon by customers that there will be a set date for payment and a 1% interest is to be expected. The customer chooses the exact date and time for the payment but it cannot be altered no matter the situation. You will be working very closely with an old friend of yours.” "Old friend?" Whispering so to herself she looked over to Noah with a soft smile, We'll be working closer than I thought. When the man went on to talk about what Noah's job would be she new it'd be perfect for him. "Medicine man, sounds pretty interesting." Winking at Noah she nudged him slightly with her elbow in a playful manner.

#, as written by Naught
Image"It's not that easy," Noah was a bit surprised at her snapping at him and he wasn't really trying to put it the wrong way. He really did love Rosalina but, somehow he managed to fall out of love with her just because, of a little anxiety -that was probably an side effect from the drugs he was abusing. It made him twitch a little, not out of anger but, from past issues he didn't want to fix. "You know I loved you more than anything! I would have done anything for you, but you repaid me by leaving without reason-" He didn't say anything. How could he? He thought he deserved this. After he left her like that.

But, even if he thought of this now, he's going to forget and deny it in the end. Noah was always, Noah. He would be with anyone he pleased to be with and he'd do what he want, when he had wanted and he didn't care who hated it. That was him, the typically bad boy, the bad influence, the heart breaker; it was pretty funny because, he had no control over his life. His life was the video game and somewhere inside him was the controller.

"I still love you, and I probably always will. No matter how hard it is I have to learn to live with that." Looking down at her as she laid her head on his knee, he wanted to say sorry but, for some reason he couldn't bring himself to say it. It shocked him to hear that she still loved him and it kind of made him want to smile. But, he didn't. He truthfully had no idea what he had felt about her after all these years -since he was literally blinded by drugs and many other things that he'd been hooked on even before he met Rosalina. This love thing was really confusing to him, he knew how it felt but, he didn't know what it was.

"You have to live with hurting me though," Biting his lip, now that she said that, he is already living with hurting her, it got to him. He didn't like when other people were hurt, and he was one of those people who had hurt a lot of people just by dragging them down into his shitty life and leaving them there when he didn't think it was too late to leave. Running his hands through his hair,"I loved you more than anyone could ever love you and you left." He knew she loved him but, he didn't know she would be hurting -from him leaving- this much, even until now, and he hated seeing her like this. He didn't like seeing her cry, he tried his best to comfort her and rub her back gently. "I-"

"Good, okay folks it's time to go meet your new boss! Scar you can lead the boys first, I'll stay behind the girls to make sure they're protected." Looking over at the guy that walked in, he guessed he was the one that worked at this place. He then turned his head towards Rosalina and smiled as she grinned. "You're the only person I know here making us automatic best friends," He raised one of his eyebrows in confusion,"this time you just can't get up and leave me either, Noah." His eyes widened slightly as she kissed his cheek. He wondered how she had changed her mood so quickly. He had a feeling that it was his fault but, he didn't know why.

"How do I look though," He looked at her for a moment,"You look good." He smiled, remembering how important impressions were to her. "I can't make a bad first impression. You know how I am with impressions! Are my eyes red or puffy? Do I look pretty?" Chuckling at Rosalina,"No your eyes are fine and yes you do." Still the same girl he first met, it still was confusing how quick she altered her mood and he didn't want to bother her anymore by asking questions. "By the way you look perfect, very presentable!" Smiling, at the compliment, he still remembered every one of her words from a few minutes ago. He needed a smoke he need relief he needed something. "I think this is where we separate." Maybe he could get rid of this stress after he meets this Benefactor. Letting her help him up, he smiled and then he nodded. "I'll see you in a second!" He followed the nice looking redhead to a nice looking office, still hating the fact that the damn elevator was broken.

“Welcome. My name is Sylvester Cromwell but I am usually addressed as The Benefactor. Although some of you may know that from reading the letter. Before we begin, I should let you know that should you desire to return to your rooms, the room number is placed in the back of the letter. If you by chance did not read your letter in your room or did not bring it with you and don’t remember your room, I will give it to you before we give you a tour of the places you will be working in the town.” Damn, well he didn't read the part about bringing the damn letter, and he didn't really need a number he just needed to remember where he was at and go backwards. Noah did have a band to take care of so, he didn't want to stay here for long. He didn't think this would help him, he actually thought this was a waste of time. Wait, no. I take that back. How much time did he have to waste?

Looking down and then up at the male walking towards him,”Noah, you've abused drugs and even conjured your own, sometimes bringing others with you to your downfall. Now you will be a potions maker which is like a drug dealer only your potions are made through your gift of magic medicine. You will brew potions that will solve problems that the customer will have. Materials and the guide book will be provided by the Benefactor. However, the medicines are still drugs, which mean they have to be taken at certain dosages and in a limited amount of time. Make sure you take some funds with Rosalina.” Well, damn. Just put his business out there for the world to know. This was an easy job for him actually but, potions? Also, what type of problems would he be helping people with? He was a hard worker but, when it came to people and communication, he just wasn't good at it. Some of them might have nasty attitudes and he wasn't going to deal with that shit, and some of them might talk too damn much. Hell. This was better than going to some therapist, telling him some lies and giving him medication that he was probably going to sell.

Well, he guessed it made sense, it still freaked him the hell out but, he tried his best to keep that to himself. He wasn't going anywhere, he's been trying to get clean but, the more he tried the worse he got. So if it took kidnapping to get him to stay clean, the so be it. "Medicine man, sounds pretty interesting." Looking over at Rosalina, he smiled at the playful nudge. "I need a stress reliever." He mumbled, saying that to no one in particular.

Image"I need a stress reliever." At her words she cocked her head to the left as she stood to his left. In their past she remembered he'd either smoke or do some type of drug. It's not like she had any on her to offer him some help, "What would help you?" She knew she had nothing to give, but she was just trying to be helpful. "If there's anything I could do I'd love to help." Rosalina wasn't the most helpful person in the world, but she tried when she could and she would attempt to kill Noah with kindness. She did still love and care for him, but she decided she wanted revenge. Rosa was vengeful to a certain extent when it came to getting people back, but no one had broke her heart before like he did, so all she could think of doing was make him feel guilty or at least she would try. When he left she thought he couldn't feel guilt or remorse for anyone expect himself; when she had cried he had patted her back to try to comfort her changing her mind to think he possibly still did care.

Pursing her lips together she tapped them as she narrowed her eyes onto him. Looking him over it appeared to her that he looked tense by the way he was standing. "You look tense," saying so she slowly placed a gentle hand on one of his shoulders, "May I..." With a trailing voice her mood trailed with it to nervousness. Should I even be talking to him? Does he even want me around? A feeling of unsureness hit, it was just one of her random mood swings that she was use to. Without an answer she put her other hand on his other shoulder and began to massage the taller man. As she did so she let her eyes graze the view of the carpet along with her face blossoming to a rosy red without warning. Her body was reacting funny like usually doing strange this and turning off colors. "If you turn around I can get your shoulders better." Her voice was barely louder than a whisper as she moved her head to look up at him, something she didn't want to do. Rosalina didn't want him to think he was the cause for her blushing because he wasn't even though it appeared that way. Applying pressure to her right hand gradually she had him spin in the direction she pushed without removing her hands from him. "I did most of the talking out there... so how has-" thinking of how everyone had a job change she decided it'd be best to use more appropriate, how was the band life? You didn't explain."

Waiting for his answer she kept doing the awkward massage to help him unwind. She wasn't sure if it was even working, but she was trying her best at least. "If you ever need someone to talk to my doors always open to you." Rosalina was going to make sure it got through his head they were going to be friends again. With him being near her made her become a clingy mess again, she didn't mind it for now through, but she might later she wasn't sure. "After we're dismissed do you think I could see your room?" With he voice still at it's quietness she dropped one of her hands and walked in front of him to see his face as she barely had a smile on hers. "I just wonder what your room looks like and later on you can see mine then we can compares who's better." Shrugging her shoulders she let the hand she had kept on his shoulder wonder to his hair. It was soft like she remembered it had always been and messy too. "I hope I helped you some. If I could help you release any of your stress in any way possible just tell me." With her suddenly regaining her uplifting sense she strengthened her beamingness and with that her voice took back its pleasurable tones. "If you accept my invite when we go to my room we can have some drinks together, how does that sound?

Sly pulling her hand from his hair she used both hands to start fiddling with his shirt, "If your closet is like anything like mine I'll be finding you something better to wear." Giggling some she continued to speak, "After all with me studying to be a fashion designer it would be nice to have someone I could stylize." That could be a little offense. Looking into his eyes she winked, "Not that you don't look sexy already Mr. Badboy, it's just that change never killed anyone. You'd look pretty good in a suit if you asked me." Taking a step back she let her hands remain touching his shirt as she mentally estimated his measurements and what fabrics and colors would be best on him. With her eyes locking back to his she smirked, "You and I will certainly have lots of fun, because now I'm no longer giving you the chance to say no! In my mind I have a perfect vision of what I could dress you in, therefore you can no longer back out! I mean, you see what I'm wearing? It's my own design." Rosalina was simply bragging about her own design. She was very proud of herself and even more proud that her closet had put her design together for her and if Noah liked it proud would no longer be the word, it would be something much bigger that her small brain couldn't even think of. "You look good in dark colors like blacks, reds, blues..." Her voice cut off feather like while she walked circles around him checking out his body. After three circles she stopped fact to face with him. "You hair wouldn't look bad slicked back either..." Her commentary was more to her than him as she tapped a finger to her bottom lip.

“...Obviously, simple bitch...” Was all she caught as a response to Grey's question. "The fuck." Snapping her head to the carry of the voice made her feel sick. Her and Grey weren't really friends, but she didn't want anyone saying anything rude to her. Before she caught the chance to say anything to Jasper he had left the room followed behind Scarlet. Ok then... Transitioning to Noah she smirked, "Some people are so rude. If someone called me a bitch I'd claw their eyes out!" Holding up her hand up like a claw she hissed like a cat. Of course she wouldn't do that, well maybe not, it all depended on what mood she was leaning to. "What would you do if you heard someone call me a bitch?" The questions slipped out, but once it was said she shrugged her shoulders waiting for the answer. Getting called a bitch was something she heard a lot when she went out, so it didn't sting like it once had. When she first got called it a century ago it made her go into flames, Wasn't it Noah that called me that... or one of his friends? She wasn't sure who it was through all the drinking and drugs that had passed since then, but she knew it happened after she had met Noah.

The Benefactor didn’t have to wait long for others to respond to the mysterious happening of the office and himself. Grey had asked, "Why was I chosen?" and the Benefactor would have thought it was obvious at this point yet he opened his mouth to respond. Before he could, the Benefactor stopped as he heard laughter coming from another Harper who had only one question to ask, “Why does the elevator not work?” The Benefactor took a moment to smirk at the question, anticipating that it would come out sooner or later but not with the enthusiasm Harper had. Still he did have to explain and he would’ve if Jasper wasn’t so quick to answer Grey. “Apparently, you weren’t paying attention when this guy was giving an overview of everyone’s life story,” as he gestured to the Benefactor on cue. Obviously, simple bitch, you’re just as fucked up as the rest of the broken toys here.” Afterwards he turned to the Benefactor. “I have a real question, Mr. B,” sounding irritated. The Benefactor held back his smile to the nickname, hiding the fact that he kind of liked it because he knew now was not the time. “Can I just get the hell out of here?” Jasper asked before shaking his head ,waving his hand, and walking towards the door. ”You know, what? You don’t even have to answer that. I’m going to just go.” And with that Jasper walked out of the office, the first one to leave after the empowering. The Benefactor didn’t need to signal Scarlet as she walked out of the office after Jasper. After a while, she came back in without him, unsuccessful perhaps.

In a few moments, Daniel spoke up agreeing with Harper the “former hooker.” “I don’t know, it just seems like a lot of walking,” while Rosalina and Noah had a conversation amongst themselves. Makoto seemed to be the only one who enjoyed this at this point. The Benefactor wasn’t surprised when another one, Alton, also announced that he would get out of here. “Listen, I’m just going to go back to my flat, the atmosphere in there right now is pitiful and I don’t want to deal with it. So if you don’t mind, I’m going to try to come to terms with the fact that pain isn’t available to me anymore.” The Benefactor watched Alton leave and thought, ”My, I wonder if I should’ve really done that, or rather if he should’ve given him that ability considering his…special kinship towards it. But what’s done is done and he cannot take it back.”

If the Benefactor had thought that Makoto was the one who enjoyed this he couldn’t have been more wrong when Grey had started a whole conversation to him about thanking him for saving her schooling for psychology, offering her coffee skills, introducing herself, a “broken” closet, and a bottle of wine that didn’t make her drunk. The Benefactor had taken her hand and shook it gently giving her a warm reassuring smile while she spoke, but couldn’t help raise his eyebrow and give a concerned look when she mentioned the bottle of wine.

“Grey, it is a pleasure for you to offer coffee. I’d like to take up the offer sometime if it’s no trouble, and perhaps the others would like some too. I will ask the maids to gather a list from each of you about your clothing preferences. Though, about the wine…I’m sorry to say that I didn’t put that there…” The Benefactor grew jealous for the moment. ”Of all the things I don’t give them, why did it have to be wine!” he thought. The Benefactor could feel his taste buds craving for the drink that Grey had taken up and he couldn’t help but tighten his grip, forgetting that Grey was holding onto his hands. “Ahh sorry about that miss. But I can’t inform you much on the wine.”

He was about to suggest that Novia would help the maids gather deals on the clothing but then she excused herself, in a much intelligent and sarcastic tone, “Well, as much as I'd love to stay and join you all in being harassed and degraded by Nero of the 21st Century, I think I can manage to find something more stimulating to help me grasp onto what's going on. Thanks for the stuff, by the way. Love the kitchen design. But I really want my Audi back.”

More people walked out of the office after Novia, leaving Grey, Harper, Rosalina, Noah, Daniel, Makoto, and Jang to be in the room. Aradia and Zeus left the area without a word. Fiona said a goodbye to Harper saying, “As much as it is seeing people explode and hearing all this cursing, I think I'm going to go look around this place. But, it was very nice speaking to you, Harper. I hope to see you around.” With the leave of her best friend Aradia, Hailey excused herself, "I...I...Never mind. Excuse me, I need to... I gotta... I need to collect.. collect.. collect my thoughts."
The Benefactor observed all of this, and took note of who left and who still remained. It didn’t surprise him much that some people stayed behind while others had left. This happened many times over and after experience he knew that plans don’t always go as smoothly, so he had to think of an alternative. He smiled towards Grey who was still nearby him and then addressed the crowd of young adults.

“Now, I see that we won’t be able to go have a tour around the town, which is still fine. You’re free to go and look around this weekend as your jobs don’t start until Monday. However, I see that we need to get together as a group, so I’m going to plan a little something for us to do this evening. For now, I want you to get closer to each other, especially trying to find those who have just ran off. There are no more secrets in this place anymore since we have to get close to each other. It is important that a business runs as a unit that so happens to have many components.” The Benefactor smiled, remembering that logic from his father who he had looked up to all those years ago as a child. Now it was his turn to shine, his moment of leadership. “In fact, this may also be an excellent opportunity to try out your powers if you wish, as long as the other person is willing of course. Again Daniel, I warn you on not making anyone…endowed with another person inside of them…unless they wish it upon themselves.”

Before the new recruits headed out the Benefactor quickly said, “And the reason why the elevator doesn’t work is because my father was unfortunate enough to receive this building without one and as it expended the workers couldn’t install one. I apologize for this, but in a sense it is a good way to be healthy and exercise. You never know when emergency could strike and that extra training would help.” After the new recruits filed out, The Benefactor motioned to Nick and Scar to have a meeting to themselves.

“Nicholas, Scarlet, watch over these interactions. We need to make sure they do not get unnecessarily injured in any way,” the Benefactor whispered with a serious tone. Slowly his serious expression turned into a smile and he cheerfully smiled and he continued, “Especially since they’re supposed to have a good time!”

Nick nodded and politely said, “Yes, sir,” then grabbed Scarlet’s hand and escorted her out. Making sure that nobody was around, Nick asked, “So, Scar, how do you think of the new recruits? I’m definitely enjoying the chicks around here, though the guys ain’t so bad. They’re such lucky bastards though. The Benefactor’s throwing them a party again even though they act like such brats!” He gazed at Scarlet as she spoke, observing her beautifully defined body and the flaring sea of vermillion that flowed down with it. Her luscious lips seemed to move with the words she spoke and he didn’t care what she was saying so long as he could look intensely at his partner. Ignoring anything she was saying he then asked, “Hey, why don’t you tell me your power?” He eyed Scarlet suspiciously, circling around her as he spoke. “I mean, it’s been a long time since I joined and you’ve always just kept to yourself about it. We’re partners so shouldn’t we be looking out for each other?” Nick then put his arms around Scarlet and looked at her earnestly, this time showing genuine interest and concern for her. “C’mon, Scar. You know I worry about you sometimes. Why don’t you promise you’ll show me your power? It doesn’t have to be now since I know sometimes there has to be those opportune moments. But can you promise me you’ll show it to me?” Nick held on to Scarlet and stared into her eyes, awaiting an answer.
