Bio: He was born and raised up in a broken family in a near village, living with his father. His mom rejected him, "gaining this strange boy when she just expected a kind girl". His stepmother, who came home when he was 7, tried countless times to convince his father to abandon him, because he wasn't normal at all. She mistreatred the child unbeknownst to his father, and trying to change him, without any sucess. When his father died, it just became worse and worse. Not supporting it anymore, he waited for a deep night to run away from fome.

  • He can't run properly.
  • He's a bookworm.
  • He's an aspie (bears the Asperger syndrome).

So begins...

Rhys Bennett's Story

Caleb had left the main room long before Cosmo had begun his story of magic books and spells. He lay on his bed that he'd been given when he came here a few weeks ago, and stared up at the ceiling. His stuffed Tiger sat in the crook of his arm, and he fiddled gently with the ring he wore on his right ring finger.

He sighed and sat up, turning so he could lean against the wall the bed was against, and so he could get more comfortable. Unable to do so, however, he sighed again, thumping his head against the wall with a thud. He picked up his stuffed Tiger and stuffed it in one of his jacket pockets, walking out of his room and back downstairs to where Cosmo had finished his little speech.

He let out a small scoff at Cecil's response to Cosmo's bringing him up. But whatever, he walked past the room to one of the other sitting rooms and found a comfortable chair to sit in, a book nearby. He tilted his head, and reached for it, curious as to its contents.

((OOC:: Don't forget to tag who is in your post, everyone; it lets the writer(s) know that you've posted about their character!))

Cecil had heard the scoff being directed at him. His eyes narrow as he watches Caleb walk by, considering whether he should trip him or not. Looking down at the sleeping girl with her head in his lap, he decides that she might be upset if she found out that he tripped someone. He grumbles under his breath and looks down at his phone. "You guys hear about the witches wandering the forest lately? It's a trend now apparently. Young witches come into the forest and do spells and shit."

His language earns a smack from the little girl who was previously asleep on his lap. Lucy yawns and sits up, frowning at him. "Don't say bad words! And I'm sure the witches are nice witches. Right?"

Cecil makes a face at her. "Dunno. Sounds kinda fishy to me. Y'know since most of us have useful abilities, someone's gonna come looking for us eventually. Could be one of those witches." He looks down at her, grinning, and wiggles his fingers menacingly. "Maybe they'll come for you, next, Lucy." This gesture causes some of the children to cower, but Lucy just giggles and pats his face.

Even if Rhys hates being among a lot of people, he loves hearing the older ones talking, so that's why he heard everything from the tale Cosmos spoke. Things that seemed like fiction, but he actually knew they were not. Magical and adventures stories were always his favorite ones.
He even clapped loudly when Cosmos had finished the tale, and his hand directly got to where he laid his pocket videogame. Rhys only has two games to play, and won the second in an internal contest with another child, but he played and played then for years. But the pocket videogame wasn't where it would be supposed to be.
"Where is it... where is it?" He was worrying in murmurings, the thinking speaking louder than he wanted to. The pocket videogame already were his best friend in the worse moments, like when he couldn't sleep, afraid of the storms and the strong thunderbolts.
"Where did I lose it..." he was even starting to cry.

Faye Chalmers

Faye sat quietly towards the back of the room as Cosmo told his story in the main room by the fire. The children gathered there had been listening intently. Faye had leant her head on her hands enjoying the tale. She loved stories of all kinds, she loved to read new tales in the many books that resided in this house. She especially adored the romance novels.
Her heart thumped for a moment as she thought of the stories she had read, all the main characters had a close companion, a lover, a mother, a father even a friend.

She sighed. She was too nervous to make any friends. Her books were her friends.

She brightened as Cosmo directed his attention towards Cecil. Sitting up a little bit Faye looked towards the boy as he sat comfortable with a younger girl on his lap. Lucy.

All this talk of witches made her a little uneasy.

She watched quietly as Cecil began to gather companions to his detective regime, Sapphire and Willow stood to follow. Seeing Sapphire's red cheeks made her smile. She wondered if she turned as red as that when embarrassed. It seemed like fun

Listening to the chatter around her Faye heard a slight tapping in the distance. It sounded almost like a knock at the door? Looking back at the group before her no one else seemed to have noticed it...

Oh no, I'm going to have to talk.

She gulped at the thought.

"Um.." she raised her hand to grab someone's attention. However as her hand lifted into the air it struck a nearby pot that had been sitting on a side cabinet. Before she could react it crashed with a loud shatter causing her to flinch and suddenly freeze her eyes quickly looking towards the floor.

Oh god are they looking at me? she wondered not daring to look up her hand still in the air afraid to move it back.

With another gulp she pulled her arm down and spoke "I - I think there's someone at the door." She said quietly tugging at the sleeves of her jumper embarrassed by her own clumsiness. A small shard had cut her hand as she pulled her jumper over it. She didn't want any more attention. It didn't hurt very much, not compared to... she pushed her memories away not wanting to remember.

Cecil, contrary to the notion the other members expected of him (that is, to throw Willow off of his arm), makes no movement to do so. He smirks slightly, but other than that, there's not much of an indication of a reaction. In truth, he does like Willow a great deal. For one thing, she acts so childish that she reminds him of a child, and he certainly has a sweet spot for those. For another, she turns into a cat, and he absolutely loves those.

Lucy, on the other hand, had ditched Cecil's side at the moment in search of someone better to spend her time with. She comes across Rhys, who she had noticed had almost started crying, and she ducks down slightly to be in his line of sight as he's looking down for his game. "Hey, what's wrong? You look really sad! What's wrong, what's wrong?"

When Sapphire steps over to the two of them, Cecil smiles, uttering some things along the lines of 'that's a good boy!' and 'you'll do just fine' before opening his mouth again to ask again if any others were willing to join him. It's then that Faye makes the comment about someone being there, and he looks toward her. The pot that crashes doesn't faze him in the slightest—rather, as soon as she opened her mouth, he expected something like this to happen. He looks down at the shattered pot briefly before his green-eyed gaze rests back on Faye, as some of the other residents were also doing.

"Someone? At the door? You think it could be a witch?" He shakes his head. "No. Unless a witch were pretending to be a wayward child—which I doubt they'd try to do in the first place—they would've tried to break in through the windows. That one'd be the easiest one to break through." He points towards the kitchen, and since that one seems to be the biggest, he'd be correct. He lowers his arm a bit to set Willow on her feet and he carefully untangles her arms from his. After about a half a minute of looking at the door, he says:

"Must be a wayward kid. And I don't think you talking was just a coincidence, either." The brunet casts a sideways glance at Faye, giving her a smile. "While your voice is lovely, you don't do that much, do you? Talk, I mean." His babbling probably doesn't make much sense, but he's using his ability. Assessing the situation. He tilts his head at the door. "Whimsical, maybe?"

"Where is it... Wheeeere is it?" Rhys just started moving the things on the room to find his precious pocket videogame. He started to cry. "Unless stolen, it should be somewhere, shouldn't it?".
Suddenly, it appears right on his front.

Must be someone praying a prank on him. The rage started to grow on his mind, but he just took it quietly and put the PSP on his right pocket of the jacket. "I'll just go to my bed now and... Wait, why people are going to the door?" He thought, loudly, again. Deciding to see what was so special with the door, he just got among the small group.

In the door, there was a short, brown-haired guy.
"W-w-w-"
He just failed at trying to ask what was going on.

Ash's eyes widened, and took a step back, but found their hands clasped in hers. They dug their heels into the floor to no avail, they had been caught very off guard. And ended yp stumbling a little.They stared at this Lisi girl. Her hair. Was pink. Then again, looking up and around, others also had rather...interesting hair colors.

They decided to prompt the question. Unless they were caught off guard, they were pretty good at making it seem like the person was talking to themselves.

Sure, they could introduce themselves, but that could wait. She was asking a lot of questions anyway. "Do you want to know if my hair color is natural?"

#, as written by Gatan
After Rhys seeing that it's just a new child what was coming, he decided to go to his bedroom and sleep. He wanted to see more, but he was just so tired, even if it was early enough for no one being in their beds. He turned back to start his walking, he got frightened seeing that someone was on his back.
It was a girl with a long messy blonde hair that seemed very young. Her eyes were blue, and she was notably taller than Rhys.
"Eeeewww... hi?"


[OOC: I only perceived that Lucy talked to Rhys now, so sorry for not answering earlier]

"You don't have to explain yourself to me, Faye. You know my ability's Ultra-Deduction, right? Anything you'll try to tell me right now, I probably already know." Cecil waves his hand a bit dismissively at her, his gaze resting on the door again. "... Well, looks like Lisi's got a handle on that situation." He looks towards Saphire and Willow, who he pats on the head. "We should get going into the forest if we're gonna scope out the situation. We'll be back shortly, since it shouldn't take too long with my skills." He adjusts the strap on his shoulder and starts towards the door, ducking his head slightly to the kid in the doorway. "Pardon me."

Lucy, who had been blatantly ignoring Cecil, claps her hands together upon seeing that Rhys had found what he was looking for. "Oh, I'm glad you found it! Y'know, Cecil coulda helped you with that really quick... but I'm mad at him." She pouts, then holds out her hand. "I'm Lucy! I don't know your name, but I wanna know it! You look young, like me!" In truth, it isn't all that bizarre that some children don't yet know each other by name. The house is large—the size of a university, possibly larger—on the inside (though not by outward appearance), and the amount of children that live there grows by the minute, it seems.

As Cosmo floats over to the newcomer, he tells Faye not to worry about the pot she broke, that he could just fix it with magic. Tilting his head slightly, he addresses Ash. "You look cold! Like Lisi said, I hope you weren't standing out there too long! I'll make you some tea! And while I do that, I'll have Lisi explain the happenings and inner workings of this estate!" He splays out his fingers, and from his fingertips, the sound of a party horn, and little bits of confetti spring forth. "The boy who just shoved past you is Cecil Rothgar. He is very rough around the edges sometimes, but he has a good heart! The two who are following him are Sapphire Wynters and Willow! The girl speaking to you is Lisi Wales, and she is very happy!" He claps his hands together, looking pleased. From in between the messy bangs that fall in the warlock's face, Ash should be able to see light pink eyes that resemble a cat's. "Lisi, please explain everything! I am leaving it to you, my dear!"

And in a moment, he disappears into thin air. He would reappear in the kitchen, and so begins the making of Ash's tea. The children would hear singing coming from the kitchen.


{ ooc: no worries! :') }

"You can call me, like, Rhys." Rhys got startled from his sleepy state with the claps, but was still with a clouded mind, because he wasn't fully concentered in the talking. "It's my name... or at least I think it is. And about how many years I do have... I'm 11, for sure." The blonde girl seemed very enthusiastic, and he was quite uneasy with it.
"The thing I was searching... it was it." He showed up the PSP. "Someone was joking with me. Just because I'm a quite strange, I think." He got startled again when Cosmo clapped: he didn't ever think he was still in the room.

"You don't need to be a dog to be a good boy, Sapphire." Cecil graciously takes the vest back and slips his arms through the holes. He buttons it together and adjusts the slouchy bow around his neck while he speaks. "Likely, the witches come from over there." He points toward a direction in the forest. "That's not the main entrance—it's kinda like a back entrance, if forests had back entrances. We'll have to find out if these witches have magic books, and if they do..." He looks toward Sapphire, a smile much like the one he wore before on his face. "Well, then we just might have to steal it."

The brunet watches Willow sprint off to chase snowflakes. They should probably keep a good eye on her—who knows what kind of trouble she should get into. He motions for Sapphire to follow. "If the witches see Willow, maybe they'll wanna stop. Witches like cats, right?"
-----

Meanwhile, back at the manor, Lucy is making friends with Rhys. She hops up and down when she hears his name and age, messy pigtails bouncing gently. "Ooh, that's great! I'm twelve! I'm one year older than you are. Isn't that cool?" She giggles and looks at the PSP, a frown on her face. "You think someone was trying to be mean to you? That's no good. Hey, what's your ability?"

[OOC: Should I answer here or in the manor?]

"I can, like, say the temperature. Like the weather girl on the TV. I-it's 25 ºF now, as the humidity is at 80%..." He seemed embarrassed, tapping his two forefingers, one in the other. "Some guys occasionally bully me, but I don't take it too serious. They're only idiots, aren't they?"

"They are idiots. Your ability is totally cool!" Lucy giggles, taking out her special crayon. "I like Wayward Abilities a lot more than Whimsical ones, 'cause they're like skills! But mine is Whimsical. Watch." She takes out a notebook and starts to draw some butterflies. As soon as she finishes, the butterflies flutter off of the page and into the air.

{ ooc: the manor should be fine! }

#, as written by Gatan
"Nah... Your ability is greater than mine. Like, the Whimsical ones are like superpowers." He watched attently her draw, and blushed a little when he perceived he was just socializating well.
Rhys seemed excited with the butterflies.
"Can I touch them?" He started to jump to reach one.

Sapphire had corrected Cecil's musings, calling them a stereotype, and he shrugs. Stereotype or not, he can't imagine anyone passing up a cute little kitten in front of them. In addition, he seems incredibly unfazed about possibly digging up something unsavory about the other's past. He lowers his voice gently, speaking pointedly at Sapphire. "Don't worry about my ability. Even if I'm able to decipher things about yourself you'd rather keep down, I'd never tell anyone else."

He reaches into his bag and fishes out two macarons—one white speckled with black, and one pink. "Do you want one, Sapphire? The pink ones are peach-flavored, and I save them for cute boys." He laughs gently and holds the cookie out to him, noting Willow latching back onto his arm.

It's then that he notices a rather different figure—a smaller one than all of them. Cecil peers down at Dennis, who had followed them all the way out here. His green eyes widen slightly, an eyebrow lifting. He opens his mouth, likely to tell Dennis to go back to the manor—to keep himself safe, because it's dangerous out here and he could catch a cold. But the eyes the boy gives him...

The wannabe detective sighs and relents. "Alright, you can come. Please be careful, though. If I tell you something's fishy, stay behind me."

Just then, Cecil can make out a noise. Something of a shriek, it seems like, but not too loud. His head jerks in the direction of where he heard it, the sound being muffled quite a bit by the snow, but Cecil's attention to detail won't let him miss even the quietest of screams. He looks back to Sapphire, Willow, and Dennis, and asks: "Did any of you hear that? We should probably go check that out. It's too early to tell even for me, but someone might be in trouble."

He'll be disappointed if the person need isn't being hunted by a witch, or if they aren't a cute boy, but he supposes he'll help anyways.
--

Lucy nods excitedly, glad Rhys seems enthralled in her magic. "You can touch 'em! Just be careful, though. If you touch 'em too hard, one could disappear!" She tucks the notebook back into her backpack and grins. "Waywards could be super heroes, too! Kinda like Batman. He doesn't have a superpower. You're like Batman!"

Dennis's disappearance into the forest hasn't gone unnoticed. For sure, she starts growing jealous. She should've thought about escaping, too...
--

Somewhere in the forest, a bush shakes with the urgency that only a person could make...

Elise listened intently at Cosmo's story, and smiled when Cecil was mentioned. But, when witches came up, she began to feel uncomfortable. She was happy that Willow, Cecil, and Sapphire decided to investigate the area. It made her feel safer. Then, when everyone gathered to see the person at the door, she simply stayed seated in her chair. She didn't want to see this person, nor did she care. She actually was still getting used to having some of the newer children around, much less a new one.

While all of this continued to happen, Elise pondered on if she should talk to the newer children more. She knew for a fact that she was slightly scared. She began to think they would say she's crazy for her telekenetic abilities. Even so, she knew better than that. She set the thoughts aside.

Suddenly, she saw Dev and Gab walk into the room and sit at a table with a deck of cards. She watched them curiously as they began to play with them. After awhile, Lisi suddenly burst into the room with someone else beside her. Surely, Elise was startled by the noise Lisi suddenly made, but she recovered quickly. As Lisi explained what Dev and Gab's powers were in a very subtle way, Elise listened closely with interest. She loved using her powers, and she also wanted to demonstrate for the new kid, even if she wouldn't interact much with them after. She walked over to them and smiled, "May I demonstrate as well, Lisi? I'd love the new kid to see a variety of things that we can do." Elise silently waited for an answer.

(OOC: So I'm guessing the living room is the same as the main room? If not, just act as if she moved into the living room to get more comfortable or something.)

Rhys stopped jumping when he reached one on his fingertips. "It's awesome!" He smiled while confused. "Hey, ever if I wanted to, I'm not Batman. He's rich and strong, and I... I'm not". He sighed. "Can you draw another things too, like, ice cubes, forks or even bigger objects?"

  1. Cecil charmingly reassures Sapphire that everything is going to be okay, & says he'll protect him if anything goes wrong. It's to be noted this is probably a really empty promise considering Cecil is useless when it comes to actual combat. That's probably evident by the next part, where he hasn't eaten in days. wtf

  2. it's always sunny music The Gang Finds A Body. The Cecil Brain gets to work. He basically just tells the gang that the kid has 30 minutes to live unless they get him back to Cosmo and keep him warm. Cecil talks his way out of carrying Jaz by insisting he's too weak & feeble due to his health problems, which is slightly true but also he just doesn't wanna carry him.

Cecil nods, patting Dennis's head. "The help would be appreciated, Dennis." He looks over to Sapphire, then, the unease clear on his face. He simply smiles and puts his other hand on Sapphire's shoulder. "Don't worry, Sapphire. If you're scared, I'll protect you. You can count on it." His words are accented with a wink, and he starts walking toward where he heard the scream. After a bit of walking, Cecil's stomach growls. He puts a hand over his stomach, as though it would shield the sound from anyone hearing it. He looks around sheepishly, keeping his hand on his stomach. It might not be such a good idea to be out in the snow when he hasn't eaten since breakfast two days ago, but the brunet would never let his eating problems limit him. He was never one to take care of his health.

Eventually, the group would come across a body in the snow. Cecil breathes in a sharp gasp, though his face remains the same, as he steps over to the body. It seems to be a boy—couldn't be older than 15—who is currently probably suffering from hypothermia. The aspiring detective's face looks deep in thought for a few seconds as his the gears in his brain start turning.

Boy in the snow. Young teen. Unconscious. Deadly pale. Shallow breathing.

"He's here for the Residence." He says after a moment. "There's no reason he'd be here otherwise. We're in the middle of a forest during a blizzard. Stuff like that doesn't happen, and if it does, at least it doesn't in this forest." He steps behind Sapphire and guides him forward, his hands on the other's shoulders. "He's got real bad hypothermia, and he'll probably die within half an hour if we don't get him back to Cosmo and cover him with blankets and hot towels." He pats Sapphire's shoulders, a smirk evident in his voice. "I can't carry him, because I haven't eaten in a few days, and I don't trust myself to carry someone under these conditions. Dennis is too small. And Willow..." He trails off, not bothering to complete his thought. "That leaves you, my big and strong partner. It'd be best to get him on your back. You'll carry him easier that way. Willow, help the kid onto Sapphire's back. And Dennis..." He looks to Dennis, thinking for a moment. "You can be our look out. If anything strange happens, let us know."

Cecil is, of course, a bit disappointed that he won't get to investigate witches today, but this isn't too bad.

Somewhere close to them, but not by any of them, the sound of a twig snapping in half sounds. As if someone stepped on something.
--
"I can draw anything, as long as it fits on where I'm drawing. It'll be the real size of it." She smiles. "It's got limits, though. If I wanna draw a baseball bat, I'd have to use a wall or the floor, and it'll leave a hole. On paper, though, no holes! But..." She draws a baseball bat, and pulls it out of the paper. It's about the size of the notebook, which isn't very large at all. She frowns.

  1. Cecil tells Sapphire he's "counting on him to take care of him." Not sure if this is supposed to be an innuendo or not to be honest. Lucy starts to draw a PSP game for her new buddy Rhys but Things Are Happening and I am so excited.

  2. Cosmo's back & just in time for some Serious Business. He takes charge like the responsible warlock we all knew he probably was. Cecil is moving with urgency while not actually making any movement to actually like. Help. Other than barking orders which he's surprisingly good at.

Cecil shrugs. "You're right. It's something. After we get this kid warmed up, I'm counting on you to take care of me, Sapphire." He winks at Sapphire as they arrive at the door.
--
Lucy taps her chin. "I've never really tried something like that! Maybe I could, though. Let's seeeee..." She starts to put her crayon to paper, but—
--
At Willow's words, some of the children inside exchange glances with each other. Cosmo reappears out of thin air, saucers with tea cups full of warm tea on them floating around him. He looks at Willow, bewildered, before she shifts into cat form. He lowers himself to the ground and crosses his arms, turning towards the others. "Alright, listen, listen! If there is a Wayward Child in need of help from the cold, we're all going to need to prepare! Hot towels! Blankets! Heating pads! Anything that conducts heat, please, please!" He turns toward the door just in time for it to swing open.

Cecil and the rest of them arrive at the door, with the brunet stepping into the room with a bit of urgency. A few of the other children trickle into the room with the requested objects, and Cecil scans the room. "... Are Dev and Gab around? I think we could use them, since they're doctors. They won't be able to heal something like this, but..." His eyes shift over to the unconsccious boy on Sapphire's back. "... I'd like them to take a look at him." After all, doctors should know what to do for hypothermia better than an amateur detective.

Lucy widens her eyes at the scene, a little perturbed by the sight of an unusually pale boy who isn't conscious. She frowns and grabs onto Rhys's sleeve to guide him with her before stepping over to Cecil's side. Suddenly, she isn't so mad anymore.

  1. Sapphire is glad that Jaz will be alright and accepts the macaron pieces from Dennis, eating on and giving the other to Willow. He is about to see what Cecil wants to eat when the door opens.

  2. Corvus gains a tag-along in the form of the fox he fed previously and arrives at the residence, but perhaps not at the best of times.

Willow || Sapphire Wynters

At the twins' announcement that the kid would be fine, Sapphire slumped slightly in relief, leaning ever so slightly on Cecil. "I'm glad..." He smiled as Lucy dragged over a younger boy, tilting his head back to look upwards as he listened to the exchange between Cecil and the girl.

It wasn't until he felt something being put into his hand that he looked down again, noticing Dennis in front of him. Looking at what he was given he noticed two small piece of macron. "Thank you Dennis." Sapphire smiled warmly at the boy as he then went on to pass a piece over to Cecil as well. Straightening up, he ate his piece before gently nudging Willow awake so that the cat could eat hers too.

That done, Sapphire turned to ask Cecil if there was anything in particular that he wanted to eat but the door opened and from the corner of his eye he could see as a small figure with bright orange hair peered through the opening.

Corvus

Thankfully by this point the blizzard seemed to be dying down a little, but Corvus knew better than to trust that it would stay that way. Predicting the weather was something he had never been good at, thus he had been caught out in his fair share of miserable weather during his travels.

He had stopped his complaining a few minutes previously, and had now settled for glaring at the snowflakes as they melted on his clothes. Shivering slightly, the ginger knew that if he didn't get to where he was going soon he might end up freezing. Rubbing his gloved hands together to create a little more warmth, he then shoved them into the pockets of his trousers, losing himself in thought as he forced himself to move forwards.

A short while later a familiar fox appeared before him, making the teen pause and blink a couple of times at the creature. "I don't have anything else for you." The small thing continued to stare up at him and he sighed a little. "I see, you want to stick around then, huh?" At the affirmative bark from the fox, Corvus rolled his eyes somewhat. "Very well then, come along. I can probably find something for you to eat when we get to where I'm heading."

The pair traveled through the snow in silence and about ten minutes later Corvus could see the residence up ahead. It looked just the same as the last time he was there, except that there seemed to be more flowers than before. The building seemed a little quieter than usual, though everyone was probably inside because of the weather so that was no cause for concern.

Cosmo had never seemed to have a problem with the ginger just waltzing into the building before, so that's what Corvus did. After closing the front door behind him, he could hear people talking in the living room and he headed in that direction, maybe Cosmo was in there? He did need to talk to the man to see if he didn't mind having the orange-haired teen stay for a few months.

Reaching the living room, he pushed open the door and peered through before stepping into the room fully. Corvus had to resist the urge to scowl when his scan of the people in the room showed that most of them were taller than himself. He also noted a slight level of tension in the air, and was that someone ill on the couch?

"So... I suppose this is a bad time then?"

At the sound of a newcomer's voice, Cecil is surprised. It's rare for Cecil to be surprised, so the brunet's green-eyed gaze snaps to the doorway, squinting his eyes slightly. He pats Dennis's head in thanks and pops the macaron in his mouth, chewing on it, before his features settle into a deep frown. As the other children scramble off to do what the good doctors told them—like change him into new clothes, move him closer to the furnace, and such, Cecil pats Sapphire's shoulder before he steps off over to Corvus, expression and tone blank.

"Who are you?"

Of course, he's seen this face before. He's always coming to visit Cosmo, but he never stays. He's always in and out of here, like it's nothing. Cecil wonders how someone could step into this place and not want to stay.

Lucy peers out from behind Cecil to see the redhaired boy, and blurts: "Whoa! He's really short!"
--
Oliver steps over to the crowd, petals falling out from his hair occasionally. He seems worried. "Ah... I w-was wondering, if there was anything I could do." He says to Dev and Gab, looking from one to the other. He presses his palms together a bit sheepishly.

  1. I decided to just get Resi involed in all this in order to introduce her. In here we see Resi accidently mistaking Corvus for a girl (Which she finds very funny by the way). And I also went ahead and had her get the idea of everyone going to sleep out there to the children so that this day doesn't last forever. She also tells Oliver that he should be more confident, and then asks the twins if they need anything from the kitchen.

Resi stood up from her desk and stretched, placing a hand against her mouth as a yawn floated past her lips. Looking around her room lazily, the blonde spotted a notepad and pen that she has been using earlier. Picking it up, she examined the half finished list of vegetables that she had been making for her trip with Oliver out to the garden tomorrow morning. They were going out before breakfast in order to pick some fresh vegetables for the kitchen. Gently seating herself once again on her desk chair, Resi decided to finish up the list she had been making.

Normally at this time of day the girl would still be downstairs in the kitchen, making anybody any last minute meals they needed before they headed off to bed. But today some of the younger children and kept her busy since the morning asking her if they could help her make some meals for the other residents. Unable to deny them, Resi had been on her toes all day attempting to keep the children from burning the Residence to the ground. Needless to say, she was a bit exhausted by this point and had informed the children that she was heading to her room. Telling them that if they needed anything to just knock.

Finished with the list, Resi set it aside and rested her chin on her hand. Maybe she'd make omelets for breakfast tomorrow. Resi made a mental note to ask around a bit to see if that was ok with everyone. Deciding that it was probably time to get ready for bed, the girl began to head towards her closet when she was suddenly stopped by a noise downstairs. Straining her ears a bit, she heard what sounded like people rushing into the manor from outside. Curiosity getting the best of her, Resi decided to go check it out.

Making her way down stairs, Resi looked to see that it appeared that everyone was gathered in the living room. Walking over to the doorway, she noticed Faye and a person that she had never seen before blocking the way. The new person had fiery orange hair, and setting her hand on one of their shoulders, she softly asked, "Excuse me Miss, but may I enter the room?"

However, when she got a better look at the person's face, she could barley contain her laughter. It was a man! One of the girl's cheeks puffing out in an attempt to choke back her laughter, Resi looked at the boy with delighted eyes. "Oh dear! Do excuse my mistake! It's just that you have such lovely hair, and such an adorably petite stature!" Looking down at the boy from her elevated height, tears were beginning to form in her eyes from how hard it was becoming not to laugh.

As the girl looked over the boy's head into the living room however, her demeanor quickly turned serious once again. Carefully slipping past the two at the entrance to the room, Resi made her way over to the sick boy laying on the couch. Her eyes filtered over all of the tense looking children that were present in the room. She thought about how late it was getting and let out a tiny nod to herself. "Excuse me everybody. I don't mean to be the bearer of bad news, but it is getting quite late. I believe that it would be best if we all retired for the night." Looking all of the children in the eyes, Resi smiled before gesturing to the unconscious boy and continuing. "This boy isn't going to get any better with all of us just crowding around him. Lets all head to our rooms and give the doctors some room to work." Clapping her hands together in finalization before walking over to the mentioned doctors.

Resi came to a stop at Oliver's side where he stood next to the twins. Reaching out she caught one of the petals fluttering out of the boy's hair before picking it up between two of her fingers and examining it. "Oliver, there is no reason to be so timid. I've told you before that you should be more confident with yourself, haven't I?" Smiling sweetly at the older boy she then turned to look at the other two boys. "I'm sure that Devon and Gabriel would be more then happy to have your help." She said with a reassuring smile, placing the boy's petal back into his hand.

"Speaking of help, do you two think that you'll need anything from the kitchen?" She asked while tilting her head slightly, ready to lend a hand if it was needed.

At Oliver's question, Devon whirled around to grab at Oliver's shoulders, clutching the fabric of his shirt tightly in his hands as Gabriel continued to pack up, keeping his back faced towards the flowery boy and his face hidden from view. They ignored the sounds of Cecil talking with the Orange-headed newcomer and general commotion involving said Orange-headed newcomer, and the children surrounding Jaz.

"Yes, Oliver." Devon said gravely, an unnaturally serious look on his face, the expression in his eyes hidden behind his glasses and fringe. The air surrounding them was solemn as a grave, filled with tension. "Yes, there is something you can do for us. Immediately, and with great haste! For it is urgent indeed...

That you find us a camera!"
The tension broke as Devon looked up at Oliver with sparkly eyes, a large grin breaking out onto his lips. Behind him, Gabriel had broken out into laughter, making it evident that he had caught onto his brother's theatrical attempt at humor and went along with it. "Look at that guy! We need to take a picture of this!" Letting go of Oliver, Devon spread a hand out to reveal Jaz, Gabriel adding to the effect with jazz-hands as he knelt beside the couch with an equally large shit-eating grin on his face.

The effect was a bit like watching someone buried under a pile of cloth. Dressed in an ugly looking christmas sweater and surrounded by soft woollen toys the children had thoughtfully given him like sacrifices to the God of Sickness and Illnesses to the shrine-couch and a hot water bottle, Jaz's face was barely visible underneath all the hats jammed on his head. They were stacked on top of each other like building blocks, ending with a woollen white hat with heart designs everwhere that had a fluffy pink bobble on the top that was shaped like a heart, nearly blocking his eyes from view. This in addition with several blankets they'd placed on top of him as if they were trying to reenact a misguided version of Princess and the Pea meant that Jaz was literally covered head to toe. The girl's fire from earlier was still there, radiating heat, but they were surrounded in small bubbles that were a few feet on top of him, created by a boy who's ability could create any kind of bubbles.

It was overkill. It was also completely hilarious. They'd have to undo it later so that Jaz didn't overheat, but that could wait for after they took a picture. Clearly they weren't going to use it for blackmail - that would intend that the picture wasn't going to see the light of day, which it absolutely would.

Grinning, Devon and Gabriel looked at Oliver, making it absolutely certain that they were completely serious about taking a photo of this scene. Gabriel got distracted when Faye ran up to them, adding to the Jaz Shrine of Woollen and Cloth Goods with an item of her own.

"He'll be fine, Faye! He just needs a long rest. He'll probably wake up around the afternoon, if I'm any guess." He said cheerfully, still chuckling a bit. He smiled, patting Faye gently on the shoulder."Thanks for the offer, but I don't think we need it. Currently he's got more than enough blankets, but I think Ash could do with one. Why not try him?"

When Resi appeared and told Oliver to have more courage in himself and that they'd appreciate the help, Devon nodded. "That we would." He said merrily. "And she's right, have more courage in yourself, you're a good guy!"He said warmly, patting Oliver on the back. Then his grin grew wider, nearly maniacal. "But more importantly, camera! A camera to take a photo of this glorious scene before the time to take it is up!"

"Ah, Resi!" Gabriel turned around to face her, attracting her attention. "We don't need anything for now, but could you make something warm and liquidy for this guy in the morning? Like chicken soup or feeds or something. He won't be able to take anything truly solid for a while. Also, I think Ash needs to eat something, not too sure, haha." Gabriel shrugged, looking over at the other newcomer.

"Oi, Orange-head! Want something to eat?!" He yelled. "We could also check you over if you want!"

----------------------------------------

Dennis, meanwhile, had merely given a nod to accept Cecil's thanks after it'd registered and headed over to Rhys, joining him with the other kids. He tapped Rhys on the shoulder, tilting his head questioningly at him. What's up?

  2. Oliver is precious! He tells the twins they're irresponsible for something like that & makes a cute flower analogy when people tell him to be more confident.

"No, I have no problems, really. But you're always in and out of here, and it drives me crazy." Cecil narrows his eyes at the other, pointedly ignoring all the commotion happening around him—from Resi asking Corvus to move, to Faye bumping into him. He doesn't seem to have a Magic Book on him, and he seems about Cecil's age... which means he'd be a Wayward Child, too, in need of a home. But he doesn't stay. It bothers Cecil.

"Don't tell me Cosmo hasn't offered you a place to stay. That's against his character. Why don't you wanna stay here?" He tilts his head to the side, pushing up the bridge of his glasses. "... Do you think you're too good for the rest of us here? And by the way, you could do to be a little nicer to Faye."

Strange coming from Cecil. After all, he unintentionally says rude things a lot, as well.

Cecil does, however, listen to one of the Zarzuelas ask Resi to make food, and in addition ask Corvus if he needs food. His stomach growls, and his face darkens slightly, his hand smacking over his stomach. He hopes Resi didn't hear that.
--
Oliver's face flushes red when Devon grabs his shoulders, a few more petals falling from his hair. They needed... his help? With something important...? He straightens up a little and is ready to be receptive of what they say, but what they say is the complete opposite of what he was expecting. They wanted... a camera. The plant boy's shoulders slump, and he lowers his eyelids slightly.

"You want... a camera? To take a picture of him? Isn't that... a little irresponsible? You two are doctors..." He looks away from them, though, and over to Resi. At everyone telling him to be more confident in himself, he blushes. "... I'll try. I guess you're right. The flowers that get the most out of sunlight are the ones that stand up straight, after all."
--
Lucy looks over to Dennis and waves enthusiastically. "Hi! Did you have fun out there? I'm kinda jealous, 'cause I wanted to go out with Cecil, but it's fine. You guys found that body right? Was it scary? I bet it was scary!" She babbles on.
--
"Uwaaaaaah!" Cosmo shrieks out loud, eyes widening. "You're right, you're right! I totally almost forgot! My apologies, my apologies! I apologize!" He ruffles Lisi's hair, a thanks for reminding him, before disappearing and reappearing in the middle of the room. "Listen up everyone! Give me your attention, please, and thank you!" He waits for the commotion to hush before continuing. "I'll now give the new members their rooms. The stairs over there—" He twirls around and points dramatically to a collection of winding staircases leading up into a tower in the corner of the room, wiggling his fingers. "—lead to what I call the 'Wayward Plane'! That's where all the rooms are. All rooms shall be marked with names on the outside, so you absolutely know you're going to the right room—since it may be easy (very easy indeed!) to get lost inside the Wayward Plane. Some of you as you know will have doors leading to another room, which means you have an adjoining roommate! Please do get acquainted if you find yourself with a new adjoining roommate!" At that, he claps his hands twice.

"Disperse, my children!"

At this, some of the other children and teens start to migrate towards the staircases, though a few may stay behind, one of them being Cecil. He steps over to where Cecil is and puts a hand on his shoulder, smiling at Corvus.

"Is there something you need, Corvus? It's rather late indeed, and I wouldn't want to keep you up!"
