Kriivthi Mæla

Kriivthi stared at the wires in his hands for a long moment as he listened to the female whisper to her dæmon, making him wonder hard it was to pick up a screwdriver. He brought his gaze to the girl, only to get distracted by the cobra bringing all four of the screwdrivers over.

"Oh.. thanks" Kriivthi cooed, taking the one he needed, and censored in the circut where he wanted it. He heard a faint shuffling around from the girl, mostly indicating she took a seat on the grass.

“So this is for when people get truly lost in a maze?” Neve asked, Kriivthi shrugging and nodding his head in response.

"Yeah basically, some people tend to get in way over their heads and go into my mazes, then I don't see them again for like a day. So, I figure I just make this to go find them if they can't find their way out on their own" Kriivthi explained, tinkering with some more stuff before he sat up from the project. Now giving the girl his full attention, he noticed her choice of clothing was relatively odd. Not in the sense of being out of the normal genre of style, but the lack of a coherent style is what caught him off guard. Making him debate if she just didn't care for style, or had no sense of fashion, or maybe wasn't able to get any other type of clothes save for these. But he had no interest in commenting on it, losing his attention on the girl's style within moments after noticing it.

"Do you like mazes?" He hummed, tilting his head, not quite sure what else to say to her.

Reginald Eason Pierce | Corsen

"Oh look Sergei, another vampire," The vulture daemon accompanying the pierced boy observed. Reg frowned at the comment, slightly puzzling it over.

"What's that supposed to mean?" Reg challenged but was cut from saying anything more when Corsen clawed his leg.

"Sorry," The red panda parroted the other boy, who had now been associated with the name of Sergei as denoted by his daemon, while simultaneously apologizing for her own blunt human.

Reginald sighed through his nose, hastily tossing food items on his plate at almost random, feeling too hungry to care much as to the contents. Though he did purposefully grab an apple and some grapes for Corsen from the fruit section at the end of the lunch line.

(Just gonna sum up what Connie did from where I last left))

 

Things were honestly chaotic. It seemed like whatever happened had went by in a snap. 

Apparently someone had some sort of siren ability, using their voice over the school's speakers to hypnotize everyone-including herself until Aligerous came and had been able to put a silent bubble over her head to avoid the siren's melodic trance. They discussed what to do, Connie had felt guilty if she just straight up left... though she was sure the fake teachers would be there soon to stop whatever was happening, but Aligerous concluded with the fact that they would never know what's happening until they found out, and if the school happened to be destroyed then so be it (at least that's what Connie hoped...). So in the end they followed the crowd, unable to hear anything by the silence bubble surrounding them. And had come to find out it was a student, but before anyone could stop them they slipped away unseen.

And that was the end of that. Coronach quickly realized after a moment when the culpurates disappeared that the song had ended as well, and everyone had been ushered out.

That was the last time Connie really wanted to do anything outside class. So for the rest of whatever happened after the whole siren thing, whenever not in class or getting food, she decided to put herself in her room. Because that was the solution that guaranteed that she wouldn't be dragged into anything.

"I feel like I'm trying to get a teenager to socialize..." Aligerous complained that morning. "GET OUT OF YOUR ROOM AND GO MAKE FRIENDS." He cawed, flapping his wings to make a point.

"Everyone here is either crazy or crazier, and I'm not dealing with that." Coronach waved it off and continued to flick her pencil as she stared at a blank page.

"Says the girl that flung herself out a window the first day."

"...Touché..."

"Lets at least go and get breakfast. It's nearly 10 and I'm hungry- remind me why we don't have a mini fridge in here?"

"Because nobody will let us have a minifridge."

"And that's the reason we need to go get breakfast. If we don't, i''m gonna eat you instead." He hopped over and started gnawing her hair.

"Okay, fine... gosh your so obnoxious..." She stood up, Aligerous hung from a strand of hair he was trying to eat. "But I'm bringing a protractor-"

"Conorach that's not a weapon-"

"It's a weapon if I make it one..."

And the duo headed out, protractor in hand, slinking out of the room like a bear awakening from hibernation. Connie would occasionally look over her shoulder and look wildly around to avoid any sort of unwanted run ins.

"I'm amazed you didn't use the window this time."

"Will you shut up?"

"Would you rather me sing it? I'm no siren but I'm sure I can make a lovely tune about you throwing yourself out the window."

"Aligerous, I will stick this protractor up your-"

"Throooowwwing yourseeelffff out a windowwwwww, to oneee'sss great dismayyyyy..."

New Roku (short sorry)

Roku seems slightly displeased that she didn't get a name in return, something that sort of breaking the street kid's code but she didn't persue  it further either. She nodded earnestly at the question (her heart is in her stomuch) and is going to follow after the older girl from now.

“Oh.. thanks,” Kriivthi said, sounding faintly puzzled as he picked out the screwdriver he wanted. He then answered her question as he stuck it into his contraption.

“Smart,” Neve hummed in response, picking up a nearby metallic component and running her fingers over it in an attempt to figure out what it was. She doubted she would have known even if she’d been able to see it though.

Kriivthi shifted a bit. “Do you like mazes?” he asked as Drishti curled up on her lap.

“Mmm, they’re okay,” she replied, refraining from saying her day-to-day life was maze-like enough already. “I wonder what the one for the test will be like though.”

Kriivthi Mæla - Rene | Eyfurik - Sergei | Eyfura

"My name's Rene, by the way. And this is Jach" Rene spoke, smiling down to Roku while shrugging her head towards the other teen. The teen lead the three towards the cafeteria where several people Rene regonized had already gathered. One such being the lilac haired girl they recently encountered, standing in line chatting with the ginger.

"You know... For being broken up, they seem to spend a lot of time with each other" Rene cooed, tilting her head curiously to the two. Her gaze being stolen by another male who had the same features as her, a sly smile slid onto her face before she walked towards him.

 

----

 

"Probably a lot... Wish I knew where it was, could try and figure it out before we get there to make life a little easier on us" Kriivthi spoke, an almost grumble like sound creeped into his voice. His gaze peered up to the school towers.

"I don't know" Kriivthi sighed, picking up a few scattered pieces of wire and organizing them into a pile he can deal with later.

"So, what brings you out here anyways?" He cooed, grabbing a tool and a small object that he screwed ontop of it. Moving back under the project and tinkering with a few more things inside it.

 

----

 

Sergei chuckled again at the Red Panda's apology, the Vulture on his arm simply smiling the best she could in that form. Which was nothing more than opening her mouth and slightly lifting her head. Sergei rolled his eyes before he walked to a table, gingerly taking a seat and began nibbling on some of his food. Eyfura taking what she wanted from the plate from her new perch on the table. A faint sound of wind echoed into her ears, barely giving her enough time to turn around before the Sugar Glider crashed into her head. The Vulture falling on the table with a dramatic cry, now laying on the surface sprawled out.

"Glad to see you're doing well" Sergei mused, Rene leaning on the back of his chair with a smile, pulling what food she liked from his plate.

"Go grab your own" Sergei whined, swatting her hand away, his twin merely giggled as she kept trying for the food.

"Yeah, but why do that when you already grabbed the food" She purred.

"You're pathetic" Eyfurik grumbled, the Vulture snapped her head up with a glare jumping to her feet and chasing after the goose dæmon in the air. The two occasionally disrupted the tables of nearby students, throwing plates off the ground, or flinging food in peoples faces.

"Oh, here we go again" Rene hummed, taking a seat by her brother to watch their dæmons cause a scene.

(Sorry. Internet has been too bad to post. 

Quick catchup. lmk if I missed something bcs I had to skim read.)

 

Jach hung back as best he could as Roku went for Lila. He had kinda anticipated it, but seeing it happen was another thing. For someone so small she packed quite a punch, all of which the purple haired girl dealt with easily.

    Rene sent him a couple of confused looks, both of which he just shrugged back to. He didn't know anymore of hat was happening than she.

 

Sika swished up to Jach's shoulder when the blue butterfly fluttered in front of Roku. His keen crow eyes picked up the colour change in the girl's eyes and he tilted his head to the side. He'd known about Lila's powers - how could you not after earlier? - but not that her daemon possesed something similar. 

 

Jach stood a little straighter when the princible turned up, trying to look inconspicous as well as well behaved. He failed at both and looked like an awkward goth who'd managed to get into a business meeting that he wasn't meant to be in. He relaxed again when he and Lila walked away.

    He ran a hand over Sika's back, who was still mostly invisible air. It wasn't like petting feathers, but more like the feeling you'd get putting your hand over the end of a hair dryer. 

    While he was trying to figure out where the crow's head was, Rene and Roku wandered away to the cafeteria. He hurried to catch up, not really knowing what else to do. 

    Jach followed until Rene greeted someone she seemed on familiar terms with. He stood awkwardly in the background while they exchanged words, then Rene sat down and he felt even more awkward. 

    'Uhm...' Jach said, lacking any intelligent words at that moment.

 

Sika, upon seeing two daemons causing chaos, promptly decided to join in. He lifted off, still as his air form, and swooped after them. He became a crow sized hurricane as he picked up speed, flying as close as he dared without being caught.

“Probably a lot... Wish I knew where it was, could try and figure it out before we get there to make life a little easier on us. I don't know,” Kriivthi muttered, sounding both annoyed and resigned. Neve gave up on figuring out what she was holding. She put it down and picked up something else, running it through her hands.

Kriivthi paused in contemplation, then asked, “So, what brings you out here anyways?”

“Oh...” Neve sighed, thinking about the morning so far. “A siren, then a head injury, and finally a brainwashing. Lot of excitement before noon.”

Reginald Eason Pierce | Corsen

Reg gathered some utensils, most notably a knife so that he could slice the apple into pieces to feed his daemon. The teen headed towards an empty table, purposefully avoiding those occupied with unknown and familiar faces alike, not in the mood for forced socialization.

He set his plate down, followed by the ginger slumping into a chair. Reginald began peeling the skin off the apple, steadily removing it from the flesh beneath in a singular, lengthening ribbon. Since the cafeteria-provided knives were not the keenest, it was not as quick as could have been with a more well-honed knife. Reg paused in the middle of the process. He gathered up some of the grapes resting on the plate, popping them into his mouth one by one.

"Me," Corsen demanded as she hopped into the seat across Reg, front paws pressing against the table and lifting her head above the table. She opened her maw expectantly. Reg began a rather accustomed ritual of throwing the spheres towards the daemon's mouth. However, their game was cut short as a commotion emitted from deeper within the cafeteria. Reginald attempted to ignore the flapping of wings, but eventually, the clamor was too much to disregard.

Reg glared as the vulture from earlier, along with a goose she appeared to be chasing, crashing through and atop tables. Their ungraceful maneuvering around the lunchroom pushed food off tables with increasing frequency. Reg slowly shook his head as the three birds approached, as if silently warning them to go in any other direction. But it did not appear to either notice or care.

Sure enough, the three flew between Reg and Corsen. The harsh flapping of several birds, two of which were quite large, created enough of a draft within the enclosed room to push various items off the plate when they passed directly over it. The rounder items rolled off the plate, some even dropping all the way to the floor. Most notably, the apple that had been sitting on the table without its significant dryer skin to slow its rotation long enough for Reg to catch.

Reg gawked at his considerably smaller portion of edible food on his plate, knife still in hand.

Corsen did not take kindly to her food being tossed to the ground. She stared at the fallen food items sadly. The skin around her eyes soon crinkled, tightening inward with anger. Similar to the morning before, when the young dark-haired girl had stolen Reginald's lighter, Corsen did not enjoy being messed with during mealtime.

"Hey!" Corsen barked, leaping from the chair and shifting into a flamingo midair. She quickly darted on foot after the other birds, clacking her beak at them in frustration for ruining her peaceful meal.

Reg covered his face with one hand out of apprehension. He wondered why it appeared that there was a food fight to be had during every meal at this school. He irritably slammed the tip of the knife into the tabletop, harsh enough for it to stand up on its own. He then began grazing at the untouched food remaining, wanting to finish as much as possible while the birds were out of his general vicinity.

New Roku

"They were together?" Roku asked, cringed slightly at the thought. Ew lovers

She continued to followed after Rene (the younger girl appreciated the introduction even if it's a little late) but in the rather slower pace that she isn't leaving Jach too far behind. The smell of food made her mouth water. Just then, both Jach's and Rene's daemons flew up and seems to getting in a little of mischief with the familiar large vulture daemon and a few second late, Large long necked pink bird daemon. It was a little amusing to see Four big-ish birds chasing around each other within the cafeteria although animals do put Roku a little on the edge, especially daemon.

It takes Roku a few second to noticed that the boy Rene has greeted is the owner of the vulture daemon and the boy who blew up the principle's door for Roku. Roku blinked and look at him, tilted her head to the side a little. He does look a little similar to Rene.

“See! Told ya! You have nothing to fear when guys in trench coats pick you up in white vans.” Herschell exclaimed.

“Excuse me?” Lorelai laughed slightly, pulling a chicken salad and fruit onto her plate.

She joined in step with Herschell, her eyes flicking briefly towards his rather sparsely  adorned plate, a slight frown tugging at the corners of her mouth.

“So, Princess, how’d it go with the dear tyrannical King?” Herschell purred.

Lila’s previous expression faded from her lips, replaced by an admittedly forced smile. She shrugged in response, claiming the table she and Herschell used to sit at. “The usual. He self-righteously chewed me out.” She snorted. “And since Azul is currently nowhere to be found, all he could do was hand me a detention slip... which is currently in the trash bin by his office.” A sly grin spread across her face as she slid over to make room for Aramis. “And you? I don’t see Maylandi with you. Did they take her?”

"Ah see? Mostly everyone has gotten food so there's a short line!" Aligerius beamed, or did whatever was a raven's equivalent to a smile.

"I still wish we could get it delivered to-eep!" Coronach hastily sidestepped as several birds swooped right besides her. "I'm going back...." she started to turn back around to head to her dorm, but Aligerous stopped her by pulled her head to where the food was being handed out 

"I SWEAR TO GOODNESS CORY." He cursed

"C-Cory? That's a new one."

"I NEEDED SOMETHING SHORTER."

Kriivthi - Rene | Eyfurik - Sergei | Eyfura - Herschell

Kriivthi furrowed his eyebrows in confusion, he understood the siren part, but the other two confused him. He pulled his tools back from the tin machine and poked his head out from under it. Looking to the girl currently fidgeting with a safety razor, of which he forgot to clip back into it's casing to not cut anyone. But he didn't seem to care too much as he assumed the girl would know not to hurt herself on it.

"Head injury? Brainwashing?" Kriivthi parroted, tilting his head to the side in curiosity.

 

----

 

Herschell sauntered up to the table, about to take a seat when he felt a chill shoot down his spine. He couldn't figure out if it was due to the spontaneous bird chase that happened, or if it was due to Maylandi's distance from him. The chilling effect always seeming to happen to him in particularly when they're apart. Whatever the reason, it prevented him from sitting down, leaving him just leaning the palms of his hands on the table.
“And you? I don’t see Maylandi with you. Did they take her?” Herschell tensed up at the words, his eyes narrowing in annoyance, although the anger wasn't particularly directed at one specific thing. More spread out among several things that built up in his head, despite the logicity of it, or lack thereof.

"Oh, thought that was the silent agreement we had? I deal with all the repercussions of our stunts, and you walk away scott free. That not generally how it goes?" Herschell hissed, the chilling sensation racing through his veins, nearly causing him to shiver. The ginger stared at the heterochromia eyes for a short moment, dipping his head as if he made a mistake, however it was rather forced and agitated. His anger more triggered by the distance between him and his soul than anything else in that moment.

"Sorry" He barked out, his head bobbing in a wobbling manner.

"I just keep getting reminded of why we broke up" He spat, rolling his head away from the girl before he walked away. Stuffing his hands in his pockets as the shivering started to rattle his body, his skin oddly cold to the touch.

 

----

 

Sergei and Rene followed the bird chase from their seats, two other birds chasing after them, one of which in the form of air. The flutter of avian dæmons flew up higher into the room, now less out of the peoples way, however a wake of air from their wings could still be felt when they passed by above.

"So, anyways... This is Roku and Jach" Rene hummed, looking to the two who followed her to the table, pointing to them respectfully. Sergei turned and smiled to the two, giving a small nod in greeting.

"This is Sergei, my twin brother" Rene introduced, stealing more off his plate as he was distracted with the other two.

Eyfura's wings pulled her closer to the goose, needing less energy than the smaller bird as they were bigger, but in the tight area it made it hard to maneuver. Giving Eyfurik a slight advantage over the larger bird. A devious expression lit up his face as he noticed the other birds join in on the chase. For whatever reason they joined he didn't quite care for, he just enjoyed the fact he was able to create the ruckus.

'Hi,' Jach greeted, then sighed when he saw Sika flicker back to normal. The crow was trailing the other birds but not actually getting right into the action... Yet. Why did this always have to happen here? 'So... Um, back in a mo.'

    He made his way over to the food and grabbed whatever was within reach, which seemed to consist of mostly grapes. He then went back to Rene and her brother and sat down at a table nearby. He didn't reallllyyyy know what to say to them, but didn't want to socialise with others, so staying by them seemed to be the best shot.

   Jach looked at the food he'd picked up and poked it. Why did he always manage to get fruit?

Lorelai -18- |Azul -Dæmon-|

"Oh, thought that was the silent agreement we had?" Herschell's jovial mannerisms turned icy as he hunched over the table, staring daggers into Lorelai's eyes. "I deal with all the repercussions of our stunts, and you walk away scott free. That's not generally how it goes?"

"It's not my fault Maylandi isn't smart enough to run away." Lila retorted, too taken aback by Herschell's sudden change in demeanour. 

She took that moment to quickly scan the area, seeing no signs of Azul. But she felt his presence, he was nearby. Waiting.  Watching.  But entirely unnoticeable, it seemed. A true fly on the wall. 

He had learned many years ago to disappear for a few days following one of Lorelai's stunts. The staff members couldn't confiscate him if they couldn't find him, there was also the near impossible matter of even trapping a butterfly in the first place. 

The scarlet haired boy dropped his head, the movement oddly jerky. "Sorry. I just keep getting reminded of why we broke up."

"What the he.ll did I do, carrot top?" Lorelai reached out, touching his knuckles, her tone taking a harsher edge.

Pure ice touched her flesh, causing her to hiss and jerk back as Herschell pulled away. 

"Hey! Don't you walk away while we are trying to care about you, mister!" Lorelai shouted, standing up, but still cradling her cold hand to her chest. 

Sighing upon realising the futility of the moment, Lorelai sat back down. She turned towards Aramis with an exasperated scoff. 

"Can you believe him?"

She once again glanced back towards Herschell, her narrowed eyes widened as she observed his shivering form, departing at a brisk pace. 

Quietly,  Lila turned back around towards Aramis. Her teeth caught on her lower lip, holding it there in a confused and conflicted expression. 

"One of the symptoms of under-eating is a sensation of constant cold because your body can't burn enough calories to maintain core body temperature and homeostasis." She murmured gravely, her tone robotic and completely lacking in any inflection, as though she were reciting something she had heard multiple times. Inclining her head down slightly as she picked uselessly at an olive on her salad.  "I would know." She paused for a moment. "Should... should we go after him?"

Of course, under-eating didn't explain the physical sensation of the iciness on his skin, but Lila didn't have the emotional capacity to even consider what that could mean. 

That was a Herschell-problem, not a Lorelai-problem. 

"I swear, he needs an intervention." Lorelai mumbled, finally eating the tortured olive.

“Head injury? Brainwashing?” Kriivthi repeated. Drishti wordlessly took the object from her hands and replaced it with something else, presumably without sharp edges or pointy things, because he grumbled “Sharp,” when she made a questioning noise. In which case it was even more than just wanting to protect her, because any injury she sustained he would feel as well. How exactly that worked when he didn’t have limbs at present she wasn’t sure of. She knew people sometimes felt phantom pains in amputated limbs, but still.

“The Gyptian girl, Violeta, she hit her head during your stunt in class,” Neve explained, her tone conveying neither admiration nor annoyance. “She wasn’t quite right afterwards so me and...Sergei,” she recalled, privately filling in some vampire-esque characteristics for the male, “took her to the infirmary. We left them there and ended up out here, and heard Lorelai...I don’t know what she did exactly, but it seemed like she was hypnotizing or brainwashing another student. It was creepy.”

Whatever she had in her hands now seemed to be a cross between a wrench and a pair of pliers. She felt little ridges on the insides of the jaws. “And then I heard you here.”

Suddenly, Jach left the group. Roku, upon realized that Jach's going to get himself food, followed him along deligently despite barely interacted with him before so that she too can get food and not being left behind. The motion looked almost copied but for Roku she's clearly avoiding fruit and vegetable and only grabbed meat or bread or sweets.

Aramis glanced up at Lorelai as Herschell stalked away, then down at her almost empty plate. 

"Should... should we go after him?" Lorelai questioned. Aramis gazed after Herschell's retreating form, an epxression or rarely-seen concern there. She had tried to cure his physical coldness with her neuropathy, but trying to fill in for a daemon bond was impossible. 

"I think... we should leave him be for now," Aramis replied, turning back to her food as a fight broke out a few tables over. While Aramis, and undoubtedly Lorelai too, wanted to comfort Herschell in their own ways, being separated from your daemon like this meant you could only handle so much. 

Kastiel watched the entire exchange wordlessly, wisely keeping his thoughts to himself this time. 

 

~~~

 

Aria sighed as a handful of bird daemons began a chase around the cafeteria. Ursta remained in her snake form as she followed the fowl chase with her eyes, tongue flicking in and out as she observed their chaos. Aria sat quietly at her corner of the table next to Aramis. She really didn't understand what about boys--particularly Herschell--those two girls liked, but to each their own.

“I think... we should leave him be for now.” Aramis responded, a contemplative expression clouding her face.

Lorelai merely nodded sagely, following into a slightly awkward silence following Herschell’s outburst.

She largely ignored the chaos bursting out around her, food flying through the air and birds zipping right along with it. The clamour was nearly oppressively loud. But this was typically how lunches went regardless. 

Her eyes met those of a familiar girl, quietly hanging around the table next to them alone. Lorelai briefly stared at her with an unreadable expression, then an uncannily delayed smile flickered onto her features. 

“Aria! Come sit with us!” She beckoned the other girl over, “it’s getting too rowdy in here, you guys wanna ditch and eat in the room?”

Kriivthi - Rene | Eyfurik - Sergei | Eyfura - Herschell

Kriivthi tilted his head the other way as he watched the snake take the razor from the girl's hand, grumbling about it's main attribute as he did so. As if the girl couldn't discern that it was sharp on her own. The oddly dressed girl instead brushed her hand over another tool and began feeling it, the movements of her fingers appeared as if they were searching. The male brought his blue eyes the pale ones the girl held, squinting as he studied her blank stare. Faces failed to paint themselves to the names she gave, completely unaware of who either name belonged to. The choice of words she used also seemed to tip off Kriivthi, now that he actually paid the girl his attention.

"What did she get the student to do?"

 

----

 

Herschell left the cafeteria with a grumble, mostly glaring down the energetic dæmons that flew around the room. His feet taking him further from the cafeteria, although the shivering continued to rattle his body. The ginger quickly made his way to his dorm, grabbing a thick sweater and a leather jacket to cocoon himself in. His room still too far for his comfort currently to stay in it. Herschell left the dorm room and started closer to the first floor, eventually getting too annoyed to wander around and just seated himself on the ground, huddling against the wall to keep himself warm. Several scenearios of many different scenes rolled through his head during this time.

 

----

 

"So, how long you two been here?" Sergei cooed, looking to Jach and Roku as they returned. Neither him nor Rene seemed too interested in stopping the bird chase that fluttered above the students heads. Rene smiled to the two other students at the table before she stood to grab her own plate of food, filling it with a sandwich, a few vegtables, and some pastries. Already nibbling on some of it as she sat back down.

“What did she get the student to do?” Kriivthi asked.

“Well, we met her yesterday, and she was...wild, erratic then,” Neve explained, unaware of his increased scrutiny.

“And scared of the siren,” Drishti chimed in, watching the male alertly.

Neveah nodded. “Mhm. But now she was...nice, I guess. Smooth. Called Lila her big sister.”

“Softer around the edges,” her dæmon added.

“She invited her for a shopping day. And dessert,” Neve finished, answering the actual question.

"Interesting" Kriivthi hummed, his gaze falling for a short moment before he brought it to the snake eyeing him. The girl fiddled with another one of his tools, the blank stare ever more apparent on her face. Kriivthi couldn't help but wave his hand absentmindedly in her line of sight, seeing if she'd follow the action with her eyes. But when that didn't happen, he brought his hand back to himself and couldn't stop the words from leaving his mouth.

"You're blind, aren't you?" He blurted out.

“Interesting,” Kriivthi murmured. Neve felt him moving just a bit, and then he gave a startled “You're blind, aren’t you?” as if it was some great revelation. She felt Drishti tensing minutely at the words, but she doubted it was noticeable to anyone watching.

“It took you this long to work that out?” Neve asked, genuinely surprised. She didn’t exactly flaunt her inability to see to everyone she met, but she didn’t attempt to hide it either. And unlike some other eye defects resulting in blindness the extensive scarring on her eyes was pretty apparent. To be honest, up to this point she had assumed Kriivthi noticed somewhere shortly after they met and just hadn’t commented on it.

New Roku (short sorry)

Roku shrugged unhelpfully at Sergei while scarfing down a muffin. She honestly doesn't know for show, could be 2 days, 3? weeks? But the older boy could have guess based on her appearance and age that she's more likely to be a newcomer.

'Uhhhh,' Jach said. He wasn't actually sure. Quite a while? Maybe? It had to have been a few years. 'Few years,' he shrugged. 'I'm not sure how long.' 

    He looked over to Roku when she gave a shrug. Did anyone know how long they'd been here? Or were he and Roku just bad at telling how much time had passed?

    'How about you two?' He asked Rene and Sergei.

Sergei | Eyfura - Rene | Eyfurik - Kriivthi Mæla

Sergei smiled to the little girl, probably being the newest person at the table, as the male his sister also brought had apparently been around for a few years. The flurry of birds became more rambunctious above their heads. The goose diving down through the bodies of students to lose his pursuers. Only climbing up in the sky to shift from his goose to his sugar glider, narrowly missing the talons of the large vulture. Instead the dæmon landed a table holding one occupant, where he slid across the smooth surface and right into the ginger's tray. Eyfura sliding in after and knocking any food that may have survived Eyfurik's landing into Reginald. Both dæmons stopped to stare wide eyed at the teen now covered in food.

 

"Only a year-ish" Rene answered, getting distracted by a loud crash from a few tables over. A long sigh escaping her as she turned to witness their dæmons disrupting another student.

 

---

 

Kriivthi eyes looked to the side as he sucked in his lips, his head moved ever slightly as he thought about his next answer.

"I wasn't... Really paying attention until now," he breathed out, scratching at his head at the lack of acknowledgment to her.

"Sorry..." He chirped. About to ramble on about his apology some more, but was reminded of the ginger who snapped out on him for the same thing, so he opted to just stay silent. However, his thoughts began to remember what it's like wandering in the darkness. But, he was more particularly reminded about how his dæmon helped him process the sounds he heard back to navigate it.

"Did you want to see again?" He asked, looking to her, although mostly looked towards the snake as it was the only thing that could actually see his questioning features.

"Eh?" Reg grimaced when a small marsupial landed in his lunch. Some of the tray's contents splattered against Reg's shirt, driving the ginger to scowl at the sugar glider who had produced the mess. Before Reginald could open his mouth to raise a fuss, however, a much larger daemon plunged down to the table in hot pursuit of the smaller critter. In the process, the large vulture collided with the cafeteria tray. Any food that had avoided being blown onto Reg's shirt during the first impact now covered the dark garment as the plate was flipped off the table and onto the ginger.

Reginald stood up, the various pieces of food falling off onto the table or floor below with a splat. Any sauce or liquid-like substances either seeped into or dripped down his front. Reginald flushed red with an expression of disgust coating his features, discomfited by having been caked in food in such a public setting despite not having actually been the one to cause the situation.

Corsen doddered over on her long, pink legs. The flamingo was glaring at the other daemon duo, at least as much as a bird could do.

"Are you chicks fresh out of an egg?" Corsen cried, her beak clacking with irritation. "Quit wasting food!"

Reg turned to focus on his daemon for a moment. He reached out, pinching her beak shut to quiet her. Corsen ruffled her feathers indignantly.

"Alright," Reg fumed, his personal gripe with the situation different than that of Corsen's. He slammed the emptied plate on the table and glowered down at the two daemons with his balled fists resting against the wood as he leaned closer to them. "Which one of you should I use to clean this mess up with?"

Even without further words to clarify the imminence, it sounded dangerously close to as if Reginald was threatening that he was going to use one of the daemons as a makeshift washrag.

“I wasn't... Really paying attention until now,” Kriivthi admitted. “Sorry...”

Neve frowned, not quite sure whether or not to feel offended. A lack of dæmon was not good for the concentration, after all. Maybe she should cut the guy some slack?

“Offended?” she murmured to Drishti, who made a grunting sort of noise that could mean practically anything.

“Did you want to see again?” Kriivthi asked, breaking into her thoughts and setting them onto an entirely different path. The answer to that question was not as easy as might be expected. Of course she did, but she found that the first answer that came up was no.

Finding her dæmon and losing her sight had occurred during the same traumatic period. And even though she knew, intellectually, that being able to see again did not mean her dæmon would be gone, her mind had subconsciously linked the two events together in a one-or-the-other sort of way. Aided by the fact that Neve had never actually seen her dæmon, as well as him having basically taken over as her eyes, it made her feel like her life was divided into two segments, one with sight and one with a dæmon, and that those two could not go together. But she couldn’t exactly explain that to Kriivthi.

“’Course,” she replied belatedly, stroking Drishti’s scales hoping he understood or else that she could explain it to him later. Trying to steer the conversation into safer territory, she went on, “It’s not as if I can’t see at all though. In some ways, probably better than you.”

Kriivthi gave a hesitant chortle while scratching his head at the comment.

"I mean, it's more.. like being able to visualize what you hear better, or feel or whatever" Kriivthi explained, his hand was moving in circles in the air as he spoke. As if he was trying to weave together a proper explanation for what he was trying to imply.

"So, I guess.. What I'm trying to say is I can help with.. uhm. Under... Understanding your surroundings easier. If that makes any sense..." Kriivthi corrected, looking away and replaying his words in his head, trying to make sure they were understandable to the girl and her dæmon.

 

----

 

"Yes well... She caused the bigger mess... So... Uhm. Cya!" The goose spoke, wings raised at his sides as he started crawling over the vulture and away from the scene. The vulture glared at the other dæmon before snapping wide eyes to the ginger she tossed food on by accident. An open and hesitant smile found itself on her features, for what could pass as a smile for the raptor. Rene looked over to the crashing sound and angry threat of the ginger, giving her brother a defeated sigh. His own expression flat lipped and deflated.

"I suppose we should go help them" he hummed, earning a nod from his sister as they stood and started walking over. Rene crossed her arms to the goose trying to escape the wrath.

"What?" Eyfurik barked, wings dropping at his side and his neck pulling back ever so slightly at the stern gaze of his human. Rene pointed towards to the ginger, silently ordering him to go back and help clean up the mess he created.

"Sergei! The Vampire's mad! He's going to eat me!" Eyfura cried, jumping to her feet and leaping off the table towards her human. Landing as the tarantula and tucking herself behind the teen's neck.

"He's angry" She whispered, staring at the ginger with wide eyes. Sergei let out a sigh and pinched the bridge of his nose in embarrassment.

"I have a feeling I'll be saying sorry to you a lot over this year" He cooed, holding out a napkin for him to wipe himself off with.

"Don't give the Vampire a napkin! That's an invitation to eat us! Have you learned nothing!" Eyfura cried, slightly crawling furthur onto his shoulder with raised hairs to show her shock and fear. One leg slightly raised towards the cloth like she could pull it back from her spot, only slightly retreating back to her hiding space at the sight of the ginger.

The sugar glider morphed back into a goose and attempted to flee from the table, abandoning its vulture companion in the hasty process. However, the bird daemon's retreat was halted by who could be presumed to be his human half. A girl with long hair that was dark in shade, aside from some blond strands framing her face.

Despite its own rather intimidating size and semblance, the vulture appeared rather unnerved by Reginald's words. As soon as another human wandered over, his features oddly similar to the goose's human, the vulture yelped out a string of words edging on being panic-driven. Reg raised an eyebrow, pondering what the daemon, now shifted into a large spider, was going on about.

"Well, no offense... but it doesn't exactly mean jack when it wasn't you that did it." Reg frowned at the heavily pierced male. Nevertheless, he accepted the napkin from the other male's outstretched hand, if only to distress the tarantula. It was difficult to judge the expression on an arachnid, but the way the spider bristled alongside a heavy verbal protest indicated it was truly bothered by the instance of the towelette offering.

"I'll wait on it from the birdy- er, spidey." Reg paused, dabbing at his shirt to clean from his front most of the grime that had coated it. Still, there were some stains he would have to hope laundering would finish cleansing out. "You better hope this washes out. And FYI, I have no interest in eating a spider... at least your other form might have passed close enough to fried chicken to be worth trying."

His turned his icy stare pointedly at the tarantula that had partially obscured herself behind the other boy's neck.

Neve tilted her head as she tried to make sense of what Kriivthi was telling her, Drishti mirroring the movement in the opposite direction as well as following the wild gestures with his eyes. It seemed to be an concrete offer to help her see again in some way, but his fumbled words did not do much to help her figure out how.

“Not really, no,” Neve said dryly, once he trailed off. “Try again, a little more specific.”

She wasn’t entirely blank of course, but Kriivthi's flailing explanation seemed to indicate that whatever he was talking about was similar to Drishti’s vibration sensing ability. And even disregarding the relative uselessness of a double power, considering the incredible variety of dæmon powers she found it hard to believe they had managed to run into someone with the exact same one.

Rene chortled as she walked around the table, making sure her dæmon aidded in cleaning up his mess. The goose angrily picking off pieces of food from the ginger's shirt with his beak.

"Don't worry, they'll apologize. If not, then we'll personally serve them up for you" Rene spoke, a sly smile on her face. Eyfurik pulled his head back with a honk, dropping the food he picked off as he stared at his human with wide eyes.

"Did you want them with bbq sauce and seasoning?" Sergei cooed after, a more causal smile on his features. The spider dæmon jumped from him slightly, now on the edge of his shoulder with her abdomen in the air and hair standing tall.

"Traitor!" She scowled, Sergei just continued to smile at the ginger instead. Eyfurik grumbled as he faced the ginger.

"Sorry you were in my way, stay out of it next time" he stated, getting a scoff from his human, which caused his already angry looking features to deepen.

"Sorry." He corrected, still standing by his previous statement, just no longer voicing it. Sergei looked to his dæmon with an expecting stare.

"No. I will not apologize to a vampire" She declared. Turning away from the group to gift them the silent treatment.

"Aren't you a vampire? Aren't you two suppose to be like best buds?" Sergei asked, tilting his head.

"No. I'm not that kind of vampire! Vampires come in the form of red hair and freckled skin!" Eyfura snapped. Jumping to face her human with four glaring eyes.

 

-----

 

"Ahhm. Sort of... like.. uh. Okay so, my dæmon gave me echolocation abilities, so navigating the dark is made pretty easy. But at first I didn't know how to process what I was hearing, so he decided to make it easy by... I guess putting an image to the thing I was hearing back. So, I figure he could just enhance your memory just so you "see" what you hear or feel more." Kriivthi explained, still trying to internally process if that was understandable or not, but he figured it was better than his first attempt.

Despite himself, Reg snorted out a laugh at the varied responses he received from the twins and their daemons. Fortunately, the humans were not entirely turned off from Reginald's unfiltered responses, in fact even going along with the crude joke.

The two daemons, however, were not impressed. The goose seemed to exhibit mostly silent trepidation, whereas the tarantula loudly protested the conversation in both body language and verbal opposition.

"I prefer honey mustard, generally." Reg dryly responded to the boy covered in piercings' quip, but he stared at the goose while uttering it, as if sizing him up after the daemon's seemingly non-genuine apology. The tarantula flat-out declined to offer one at all. 

"Aw." Reginald's tone dripped with sarcasm at the spider's accusation, before he continued in a more neutral tone. "I don't know if you are trying to offend me... but lucky for you, as a being that 'comes in the form of red hair and freckled skin', I have heard far worse insults than being called a stupid vampire. So I will hold back on consuming you, for now, lil spidey."

Kriivthi’s second attempt cleared things up a lot more. It actually sounded somewhat like what she did herself, conjure up an image in her mind to help her remember individuals. Except if she understood it right the image would pop up on its own. It was…intriguing, but she was also a bit hesitant. With Lila’s manipulating still fresh on her mind, she wasn’t sure how keen she was on having someone she hardly knew mess around with her head. No matter how good their professed intentions.

“How would that work?” she asked. “With you I understand it, he’s your dæmon so he influences you. But how can he “enhance my memory” so that I can ‘see’ even if he’s not around?”

Eyfura gave the ginger a pointed look, hair bristled to its max, all the while her human rolled his eyes with a slight shake of his head.

"Sergei! Why aren't you helping me!" She snapped at her boy, who chuckled in confusion.

"Because you're being uncharacteristically irrational..." Sergei returned. Rene rolled her eyes to the bickering two, turning back to the ginger.

"I can get you some more food if you want? Maybe a clean shirt?" She offered with a snicker.

 

-----

 

Kriivthi tilted his head thinking of a response, or at least the proper way to explain his thoughts.

"He's jumps through and manipulates dreams. So, he'd be helping you through your dreams instead of always being there to drop the imagery of your surroundings. He just instead, sets up a whole little training room in your head, and fills in the general scene, and then from there you'd be able to fill it in yourself over time" He explained, hoping it was sensible enough.

"So, basically, you just go to sleep and we come find you in your dreams. Only if you want to though... We can even only start off with like.. thirty seconds to a minute if you want. It's up to you"

“Sounds like a fun power,” Neve commented, thinking it over. Drishti raised his head and bumped it gently against her shoulder, which told her he was using his ability to manipulate sound to render their conversation inaudible to Kriivthi.

“Unfamiliar,” he said, voice sounding slightly distorted but not as though he had serious objections against the idea. She hummed in agreement. They didn’t know Kriivthi or his dæmon, but their first impression was a positive one. And then there were his actions in class that morning, demolishing a teacher to unveil that they were robots. It was not the most subtle way to reveal it, but certainly effective. And he did it despite knowing it would likely cost him his dæmon afterwards.

They didn’t know him, but they knew very little about their new surroundings either. If it worked, maybe this would turn out to be actually helpful. It was enough of a shot for them to also accept that Neve would likely be on her own for this.

“Maze,” Drishti added once they finished talking this over. Neve nodded. That too.

She turned back to Kriivthi. “When you visit my dreams, will we be able to communicate?” she asked once Drishti allowed their words to be heard by him again.

Reginald gave Rene a once over upon hearing her offers. The girl was wearing a cropped halter top, further encased in an added harness of buckles. The outfit provided an open reveal of her midriff, collarbones and neck, and arms. Each of these exposed areas was not as much just showing bare skin, but utilized as a display to a variety of detailed tattoos. The realism of the ink was rather eye-catching.

"Not to be picky," Reg said, lifting his gaze to meet hers. "But I'm not sure I'd fit or pull off anything you got."

With that jest, Reg was simply intending to get up to retrieve his own food. But now that he had observed in the tattoos closer, his interest had piqued.

"Who's your artist? That's a lot of good ink," Reg stated in the form of a genuine compliment. He wondered if where she was from it was easier to get work done on underage clients, or if she simply had someone doing the work under the table. Either way, he wondered how expensive such complex work had been.

Late as ever

Aria considered Lorelai's offer before nodding. "Sure," she said. She gathered her food neatl on her tray so it would stay balanced, and stood. Anything would be better than eating amongst all the chaos of hungry, frightened students. 

Aramis simply shoved another bite of meat in her mouth before stuffing some dry food items into her pockets. She rose and waited beside Aria. While Aria was a pr.ick about who she spent her time with, Aramis was glad of Aria's general company. The most notable trait in the maroon haired girl that really made Aramis appreciate Aria more was the fact that Aria didn't feel the constant urge to talk. The two would often sit in silence, Aria studying or experimenting while Aramis brooded or sketched on Aria's bed. She often hung out with Lorelai in the same manner whenever the Siren wasn't off pranking or getting her heart broken some way or another.

Roku Filler

Roku finished her feast and  currently half zoning out half observe the scene folding out in front of her. By this point the twin has already got up to clean after their Daemon's mess and are currently converse with another owner whom Roku could easily recognize as the Reg the lighter boy with the Red raccoon daemon. Her mind has become clear enough that Roku's now recognize and become warried of the daemon based on her bad experience in the first day but she didn't act upon it, not to mention she's at the far distance away and there's no incense for trouble just yet. Apart from Reg, she also notice that Lorelai is not at all far away from where she sat. Although since they just part way there's no reason for her to imediatally join in and take her up on her hanging out offer. All of Roku other 'Classmates' are nearby, all of which are older than her. She's content at where she currently sat with Jach and the twin though (even if they're currently absent from the seat) and has no interested in walking up to anyone else just yet. All she currently doing is kicking her leg absentmindedly.

Lorelai -18- |Azul -Dæmon-|
Lorelai couldn't resist the smile of amusement from creeping in her features as she observed her friends gather their food in vastly juxtaposed manners. Shaking her head, she merely plucked her salad from the table and started out of the cafeteria. 
The chaos regarding the flying dæmons had died down, and a semi normal pattern has been regained. Truthfully, Lila wanted to distance herself as far from her ex as possible at that moment. 
She passed by the same 12 year old girl who had attempted to assault her earlier that day. Lorelai offered Roku a kind smile but did not acknowledge her any further. 
Instead, she continued towards the doors, sliding past some other students on the way in.
Lila felt no strong desire to spark a conversation with Aramis and Aria. The trio were quite comfortable in a wordless camaraderie. Aria was typically too absorbed in her studies, and Aramis in her introversion to even desire to spark a conversation. And as flamboyant as Lila was, she too learned towards introversion.  Although she often masked that aspect of herself in the halls and other public spaces.
Quite frankly, Lorelai found the presence and interaction of others to be an incredibly draining experience.  So she was perfectly content to remain in silence, just enjoying the company of another without wasting any of the energy to speak with them.
As lorelai ascended the second flight of stairs, she scanned the rafters for Azul, knowing that the butterfly often liked to hide in distant corners, wings folded up to guise his brilliant blue color. These were the only times that Lorelai ever noticed the slight dæmon shimmer on Azul. Usually,  the brilliance of his wings completely hid this, making him appear to be a regular insect. 
Unfortunately,  nothing resembling Azul was lurking above leading Lila to believe that he must really be trying to hide. He was near by, though, that much she could sense. 
It was infuriating, really. The sensation of constantly being watched by a sourceless pair of eyes. A feeling Lorelai was sure most of the school was well accustomed to. 
As Lorelai approached the small, twisting staircase that lead up to her room, the hairs on the back of her neck rose. An uncomfortable churning in her stomach informed her that something was awry.  As she scanned the area, Lorelai noticed a discarded bronze door kn.ob by the first step.
Bending down, she picked it up, exaiming it. 
Small marks were etched into its sides, like scratches of something metal, specifically around the key hole. Like when someone is drunkenly trying to insert a key, but missing the mark every time in their stupor. So instead they fumble, scratching up the metal along the edges. 
Lorelai narrowed her eyes then ran up the steps, taking the gentle curve until she was face to face with her door.... missing a handle. 
The area around the hole where a handle is normally affixed was scratched up just as badly as the kn.ob itself. 
"This is the sloppiest lock picking job I have ever seen." Lorelai mumbled and slowly pushed the door open. 
She peeked inside, immediately searching for anything noticeably taken. She cleaned quite frequently and knew where everything was at, precisely. 
Setting the kn.ob and her salad on the drawer by door Lorelai began to look through shelves, boxes, and compartments. 
She only spared one look up to check and see if Aramis and Aria were near by and that was when she noticed the distinctly not purple door.
"That's not my door." Lorelai barked. "Someone stole my door!"

(I'm not too sure what to do with my two atm XD))

 

Coronach scooted away from the chaos and headed to where food was being served. She wasn't too hungry anymore, the cereal she grabbed was more for Aligerous now.

"Mmm you know *cronch cronch* I think they gotta expand their idea of 'food'. I mean seriously, it's the same thing quite often... *cronch cronch*" the daemon admitted, though it seemed he did enjoy the flavorless oat loops he munched on

Kriivthi watched their lips move, but the sounds seemed to be none existant, tilting his head as he tried to figure out what happened to their voices. The silent conversation going on for a short time before they turned back to him, asking her question.

"Yeah, the whole thing would technically be the same as what we're doing now. Maybe some oddities in the surroundings, but otherwise. Basically the same as how we interact in reality" Kriivthi explained.

"And we'd wake you up at the right time to remember it all too" He added, remembering that waking in some stages of sleep can make you completely forget what you dreamt about.

 

---

 

"Oh but I'm sure you'd look fabulous in a blue, sparkily crop top" She teased, smiling to the jest he made. Rene stood tall and pulled her arms closer to the ginger when asked about the tattoos.

"This would be the work of my brother, I'm his little test dummy" She chortled. Rotating her arms to show off even more of the images embedded on her skin, while nodding towards the heavily pierced male still bickering with the spider on his shoulder.

"But he's my test dummy when it comes to piercing. So, win win" She smiled, looking back to the ginger with inspecting eyes. Filling in his face with piercings she thought fit him best.

"Did you want a piercing? I think you'd look great with an eye brow piercing" She blurted out.

 

---

 

((Floofnuggets, wanna go find Herschell? Or go bug Jach and Roku? XD ))

 

Herschell took in some deep breaths, looking up and down the hall for other people. His mind settled off the unnerving thoughts, eventually wandering off to know what everyone else was doing. The curiosity pulled him to his feet and walked him around the halls.

"Hersch" A girl called from behind him, turning to see Jessie jogging up to him, intertwing her arms in his as they continued to walk. The two engaging in small talk.

"Oh but I'm sure you'd look fabulous in a blue, sparkly crop top."
Reginald snorted but knew the low-hanging fruit he had provided was too much to resist making a remark towards. He probably would have done likewise in a comparable situation.

The brunette rotated her arms, allowing Reginald to peer closer at the inked designs. The ginger was a bit surprised to hear that the artist behind the work was another student, her own brother. Reg glanced back at the other male who was squabbling with his tarantula daemon, taking in the placements of his piercings now that he knew the girl had been the one who had arranged their placements.

Before Reg could comment on this, the brunette stared rather intensely at his face. Reg reddened slightly, unsure of where the behavior came from. Reg was about to lift a hand to his face, worried some food had managed to splash his features and that he had missed it during his wiping-off process.

Suddenly, the heavily tattooed young woman exclaimed the purpose behind her impromptu inspection.

"Well, thanks... but nah." Reg hesitated due to temptation before somewhat reluctantly declining. As enticing as the offer was, there was no work to be found anywhere near the school. Any funds he could muster to spare would ultimately go towards purchasing his smokes.

"Please, do." Corsen piped up. "Milk him of all he has so he will quit his nasty habits."

Reginald held his hands out, writhing his fingers as if he were going to strangle the pale pink bird's graceful neck for the interruption. The latter of the two squawked and danced to the side on her lengthy, narrow legs, fluffing her feathers up to appear bigger in the process.

Sergei rolled his eyes to his dæmon, dropping the bickering match they had about the supposed Vampire. Only just barely understanding what the other two were talking about.

"Actually... We pay you to get pierced, or tatted." Sergei explained, crossing his arms while the spider on his shoulder continued to glare in the ginger's direction.

"Mostly cause we're just learning, so we tend to bait people into being our guinea pigs" Rene added, an almost embarrassed smile stretched her lips.

"So, you get money out of it, and a cool tattoo or piercing" She chirped after.

The brother chimed in, explaining the system to Reginald. The ginger's eyes widened ever so slightly.

"Wait, what... No!" Corsen wailed, her opinion having flipped since the new information had been revealed.

Reg tapped his finger against the table, considering the offer. It almost seemed too beneficial to be true, which made him slightly skeptical about the whole ordeal. He did not even know their names, let alone if they actually had a good reputation among the other students they had surely tested on. Then Reg found his eyes once again drawn to the metal adornments covering the brother of the duo's face. If it was to be believed that the sister actually had done the piercings, then there was a notable talent to be had.

Reg considered the fact he was getting the piercing for free, and would also gain money in return for his addition. His greed won out over his prior doubtfulness. Reginald was slightly distracted for a moment by the spider, seeming to glare at him with all eight of its eyes. He shot it a withering look, before turning his attention back to the brunette girl.

"As long as it's as good as his," Reg finally agreed, nodding his head towards the other male. "When do you want to do it?"

Aramis and Aria trailed after Lorelai to her room, food in hand. However, upon reaching the purple's virtual lair, the trio found Lorelai's door had been tampered with. Or, more accurately, entirely replaced, as Aria noticed simultaneously after she entered and turned to examine the door. Aria placed her food tray down on Lorelai's dresser, Aramis unpacking her pockets onto Aria's tray. 

"That's not my door! Someone stole my door!" 

"Yes, yes, very astute of you," Aria drawled, approaching the door, Ursta intwined with her hand and arm. "Ursta, if you would," Aria inquired, nodding at the distinctly un-Lorelai door, indicating Aria intended to find out what happened with Ursta's psychometry. Without verbally responding, Ursta slithered from Aria's arm, tongue flicking as Aria grasped the door handle so Ursta could touch it physically. 

 

Aramis stroked Kastiel's head. He had followed the girls without a word, knowing Aramis was in a brooding mood, as were the other two. While Kastiel highly disapproved of Ursta's general abuse of her solo power, psychometry, it did come in handy when she decided to be cooperative about it. Watching Aria and Ursta, Aramis bit into an apple she'd swiped from a table they'd passed on their way out.

She nodded at Kriivthi’s words, all but convinced. No objections were forthcoming from Drishti either.

“Let’s give it a try then,” she decided. Her dæmon climbed up to her shoulders and murmured “Food,” in her ear.

“Myeah,” she agreed, putting down the tool she had been fiddling with. She got up and carefully manoeuvred out of the labyrinth of miscellaneous parts. “We’re getting food,” she clarified for Kriivthi’s benefit. “Wanna come?”

Sergei - Eyfura | Rene - Eyfurik | Kriivthi

"I believe we have some time right now, wanna go?" Sergei chirped, moving a few steps towards the exit, Rene rounding the table to follow suit. However her gaze landed back on the table they left behind, where a pair of seemingly uncomfortable people still sat.

"Did you guys wanna come?" Rene asked Roku and Jach.

Kriivthi smiled as she accepted, tilting his head as she placed down the tool she was feeling and stood. Navigating his relatively messy work spot before declaring she's off to find food, offering him to come.

"Nah, you go ahead, I got some more work to do. I'll see you around though" He hummed, laying back under the robot and returning to fiddling with the circuts. Abruptly stopping at a thought and pulling himself back up from it.

"You do know where the cafeteria's are right?"

(Sorrryyyyyy. I'll go off the last post... Yell at me if I need to add something.)

 

Jach, after spending quite some time picking at his food, actually ate all of it. It was quite nice not having to share it with Sika, who was swooping around above deliberately staying out the way yet causing chaos with blasts of air as he flew by.

    He looked up when Rene asked him something. He hadn't been listening. 'Uh, sure?' He said uncertainly. He got up and followed, making sure to grab Sika as he flew past. The crow squawked and solidified into a mess of feathers with two beady glaring eyes.

Lorelai -18- |Azul -Dæmon-|
Lorelai did not pay the sarcastic remarks any mind, nor was she paying attention to Aria as the dark haired girl placed a palm on the replacement door.
Lorelai knelt to the floor, a scrap of bright orange drawing her eye away from her earlier search. She reached across the white carpet and plucked the hair from the ground.
She hadn't had Herschell in her room for months and had essentially purged her room of any evidence of him following the break up. That cleaning spree had been so horrible that both Azul and Aramis had to practically pry the broom from her hands and drag her down the hall.  
But since she had been with her ex practically that entire morning, she had no idea when we would have found the time to steal her door. Which would have been a perfectly Herschell thing to do. 
Who else had she ticked off recently who had red hair?
Okay, that narrowed it down to practically every redhead in school. 
Sighing,  Lorelai grumbled in mild irritation when she noticed multiple red hair scattered throughout her pristine bedroom. One would assume that removing all evidence from the crime scene was the best course of action after committing said crime. Apparently this thought did not occur to her door thief.
Correction.
Door thiefs.
There was a second colour of shed in her room, this one a dark shade of ebony.
There was an accomplice.  
"They've shedded all over my room." Lila complained quietly, looking up to see Aria silently placing a hand on the door.
Tilting her head, Lila pushed herself onto her feet and leaned lackadaisically against the bed. "Anything?"
