Monday. The crappiest of all days. Moore spent the last ten minutes on the tube reading garfield comics while drinking a can of monster. Now, he was approaching the school gates.

"Morning M'lady. Morning M'lady. Morning M'lady. Morning M'lady…"

"Morning JJ." Moore said without looking at the boy talking to every young woman that passed him, while taking another sip of his drink. There was the clang of steel and the sound of roars as Joseph and Alphonse were having yet another sword duel in the courtyard, part of their morning exercise authorised by the vice-headmaster, just to show off his son duelling royalty for the umpteenth time that week.

"Okay, question." Rin Cowbell asked her brother. "Who do you think would be hotter if they were born a girl?"

Alphonse looked at his sister in disgust. "No." He replied, heading off to form room. "Just no."

-=-=-=-

A few minutes later, Sally and Elliott stopped outside the school gates. "This is it." Sally said, smiling at Ciel. "Best high school in the country, and today you're officially a student."

={ Just put up with it }= the green text box told Ciel.

={ At least now we know you can get back. }=

"Madonna!" A blonde young man in a dark jacket said, kneeling at Ciel's feet and taking her by the hand. "Tu sei la più bella di tutta la creatione!" he declared, before looking her in the eye and placing a ring on her finger. "Marry me!"

-=-=-=-

"It's good to have you, Mr and Mrs. Crown." Principal Sanders told her guests. "Please, have a seat."

"Oh, no, we're not married." Hagane quickly corrected her, smoothing her skirt down as she took a seat.

"Oh?" Mrs. Sanders said, opening the two files before her. "Sorry, I simply assumed by looking at your daughters photographs… Still. They both seem like wonderful girls. How's their education been so far?"

@SamJaz:

Emily made her way through the the school gates. She had to get to form room. Nothing unusual on a Monday morning but she seemed somewhat absentminded. Well no wonder, a few days ago she was practically assaulted in her own bedroom and kissed by a mouth filled with blood, belonging to a man to who died moments later. But that wasn't even her main concern right now. Over the next few days she noticed some interesting things. One time her father entered her room while she was in bed reading a book. All of a sudden he started calling her. Through she was waving at him and telling him that she was there he did not react.

Later while waiting for a checkup the nurse called her name and the same thing happened. Similar events happened when she met with a few friends at the mall. On Sunday she tried focusing on some bypassers and through a lot of effort and many tries she managed to replicate the effect. She could seemingly become non-existent to others. For the lack of a better term she concluded that she developed Esper like powers.

Even more worrying, on the same day she got mail. It was a package, in it a small computer she actually recognized. It looked exactly the same like the one the man from her room had.

Through many things happened she still wasn't sure what that meant for her, either way she was visibly shaken.

With a heavy sigh she entered the form room ready to be counted.

______________

=[Alright.]= Replied Ciel through the chat before closing it down.

Just as she was about to enter the school grounds she had a boy kneeling in front of her, speaking a language she did not understand. But she didn't have to, the gestures and the ring said it all. With a cold and emotionless face Ciel punched. Right on the nose. Sliding the ring off her finger and onto the boy's head she stepped over him and into the school.

______________

"It's alright." Crown added as he sat down. The idea of people seeing the two of a married couple did make him somewhat nervous for some reason. Without spending too much thought on it, he decided to focus his attention on the questions he was about to be asked. Shouldn't be too hard. "Well to be honest they both had private tutoring up to this point." Crown replied as he made himself comfortable in the chair.

@Fehafare:

"An excellent response, Miss Rhea." A dark, menacing voice growled. "You would do well to repeat such actions in the future."

A large man stood before the two girls, long black hair in a ponytail, with a large patch of white hair near the front. His face was gaunt, his skin grey like a corpse, and scarred around his eyes. The long, black robes he wore billowed slightly in the wind, hinting at the man's massive frame underneath them. He wore a sword at his hip, and a brown hawk was perched on his shoulder.

"Head to class, Miss Fabre, Mister Jackson." Sir Pokolson ordered, turning around and walking. "Miss Rhea, my office. Now."

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

"Alright boys and girls, let's settle down." John Smith said, reaching out and taking a can from a student as they walked into his classroom. "Moore, you know how I feel about drinks in the classroom." He said, taking a sip of the boy's energy drink before tossing it into the bin.

Slightly disgruntled, he looked around the classroom, trying to find an empty seat as Rin took her place next to Sally.

He found one just behind Emily, who admittedly looked a bit worse for wear. Level 14. ESPer. Human.

Taking the seat behind her, Moore leant forward and asked Emily a question as Hannah brought something up about her studies in the Ottoman empire. "So, what's an Esper?" Moore asked Emily, honestly curious, since he'd never heard the term before.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

"I see." Mrs. Sanders told Crown as Hagane analysed her reaction to the assumption that she and Aleister were married. "And was there something… uncondusive about that learning environment?"

@SamJaz:

Ciel raised an eyebrow at the request. She didn't even know who the man was, but at the same time looking at the reactions of Elliott and JJ had he most likely was some authority figure. Though slightly annoyed by it she had no reason to resist. She sighed a little bit and then nodded as she started following the man. "Lead the way."

______________

Emily wasn't paying too much attention as Smith spoke. She was still thinking about the tings that had happened in the past few days. She relaxed in her seat for a moment as Moore leaned in to ask her something. "Well you see- WHAT!'" Emily yelled at him while whispering. She had to talk to him, now. But getting it to work in class might be hard. Then she remembered that she might very well have a way to deal with that. She took Moore's hand and focused with her eyes closed and surely after some time she opened them again. She was confident that it worked and though she couldn't really confirm it and she would most likely get into trouble but she'd try either way.

She got up, yanked Moore out of his own seat and ran out of the classroom.

She dragged him along without speaking a word till they arrived behind the bike shack in front of the school.

"Talk."

______________

"I wouldn't say so. Their tutor said that they are both willing to learn and rather good students. Why, is something wrong with them?" Crown asked as he looked over to Hagane, she's been analyzing things since they sat down.

@Fehafare:

Sir Pokolson's office was grand, and filled with books. It was neat, tidy, with a large ebony desk near the window.

"Hello there Omen." Pokolson said, stroking the neck his pet hawk as it landed on its perch. He then sat down on a large leather seat and faced Ciel. "Have a seat, Miss Rhea." He said, gesturing to the chairs placed by the desk. "Tell me, how are you finding this dimension so far? I hope you've adapted to your new lifestyle whilst exploring with miss Fabre?"

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Moore didn't really know how he expected Emily to react to him asking about her abilities, but she seemed shocked. Then she held his hand and closed her eyes for a bit, before dragging him out of the classroom.

Surprisingly no one seemed to react to this, other than Mister Smith winking at the two of them as they exited, so he assumed everything was fine so far.

When they reached the bike racks, She turned around and started the interrogation. "Talk."

Moore nodded, then straightened his jacket. "Right. Hi. I'm Moore, I've been in your class for the last few years, I'd say we're somewhere between acquaintances and friends by now, but a couple of months ago I woke up with powers that make my entire life work like an Elder Scrolls game." He explained, before pointing to something just above Emily's head. "That there is your name, level, job class and species, Level 14 ESPer, human."

Moore thumped his hand to his chest. "I'm a level 23 Gamer." He said. "There's a few other ability users in the school, and a load in the outside world, but we keep it quiet from everyone else. I'm guessing you only got your powers in the last couple of days because you were a level 9 Student when I last saw you on Friday. People don't normally jump five levels like that without something big happening. Am I making sense so far?"

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

"No, academically, they're fine." Hagane explained, taking the lead from Aleister. "It's just that… we've realised lately that they're missing out on a lot of things by being homeschooled. Friends mostly."

Principal Sanders nodded. "It's a common occurrence in this school, mostly due to parents who travel for work and aren't able to stay in one place long enough for their children to build those essential social bonds." She explained. "There are quite a few students who entered the school under those circumstances, so your girls won't be alone in that regard. Most transfer students in their situation are able to make friends and adapt to the public schooling system fairly quickly, and our teachers should keep them mentally stimulated so they won't fall behind in their studies."

@SamJaz:

Ciel looked around as she took a seat.

A rather nice little office, though she couldn't get herself to care. Surprisingly enough the man had a pet hawk right in the office. Well surprising for this world at least because of what Ciel saw so far that wasn't all too common. Back in her world people, especially high ranking officers loved birds of prey. "It's alright..." she replied to his question. This was probably the man who was informed of her situation given the question. Moore had already mentioned the so called Hidden World so she understood why a special procedure was necessary in her case.

___________

Crown squeezed Hagane's hand under the desk. He'd get to thanking her for coming along later. "I'm really glad to hear that. Is there anything i can do to help?"

At the time that was happening Lily and Mary were standing in front of the office waiting. "Wonder what they're talking about?" Mary asked. Lily didn't bother responding and only sighed. She was currently wrestling with the fact that she was displeased with Hagane coming along with Crown to this. It somehow made their relationship look a lot more official.

___________

And surprisingly enough he started talking.

But much to Emily's surprise the words that came from his mouth were not what she expected. Like a game?

Despite the seriousness of the situation she had to hold back a laugh there. Well it wasn't too unlikely anymore, she herself had powers. But still the idea of seeing the world as a video game was a bit silly. And yet at the same time she had to admit that the powers alone from that short description sounded pretty cool. Though she had no time to admire the awesomeness of her classmate. He knew about her being an Esper. Even though it was not as she assumed at first it was still kinda weird. But for now she could relax a little bit and talk. "Um, well you are kinda." she replied while calming down.

"And an Esper is... well... umm... you know, those people that move stuff with their mind and walk through walls." Emily said as she slowly rubbed her head somewhat embarrassed by the explanation she just gave.

@Fehafare:

"So, I'm sure you're already aware that abilities are meant to be kept hidden from those who aren't in the know." Pokolson explained. "I'm sure you've already learnt from seeing what Miss Fabre does and does not discuss with her sister. I expect you to emulate that kind of secrecy and maintain the masquerade. In return, you get certain liberties in relation to your situation. Do you agree to these terms?"

-=-=-

"Well, if your girls are comfortable, we can have them participate in school for the day." Mrs Sanders suggested to Aleister and Hagane. "I've actually already called two girls their age to show them around the campus if that would be appropriate?"

-=-=-

As Elliott was walking along, she felt a hand squeeze her backside. "Morning." Suzanne told her as she matched her friends walking place.

"Morning." Elliott replied. "You here to escort the new girls?"

"Overly attached twins?" Suzy guessed. "Thinking we should split them up for a bit?"

"Maybe." Elliott yawned. "I shouldn't have let Molly be head of year, then I could get out of this kind of work."

Suzanne shrugged, then sent a sweeping kick to trip Elliott over, but the green-haired girl hopped over the kick easily and replied with a spinning kick towards her friend's gut, but she leant back and dodged under it.

"Be good." Suzanne replied as Elliott raised a fist, then smirked as she stepped around the corner and saw two redheads standing outside of her mother's office. They looked almost identical, except for their expressions and posture. "Hey, Suzanne Sanders." The blonde girl said as she approached Mary and Lily. "This is my friend, Elliott."

-=-=-

"Right…" Moore replied to Emily's explanation of an ESPer, before clapping his hands together and making a fireball appear between his hands. "All I get is magic and gaming perks."

@SamJaz:

Ciel listened to the terms Pokolson put out. Since she came to Earth she kinda had "you're not ordering me around" attitude, but all the things he said were completely reasonable and she really did agree with everything he said, after all it would benefit her too in the end. So without much thinking about it she replied "I accept."

___________

"Yes, thank you very much." Crown replied with a smile. "Is there anything else?" he added somewhat excited about Mary's and Lily's first day at the school.

___________

In front of the office Mary cheerfully greeted the two girls, excited to make first contact with a student at the school. Lily on the other hand was just leaning on the wall seemingly not interested in meeting the two other girls. "Hi. I'm Mary and this is my sister Lily." Mary smoke in a soft voice as she approached the other two and gave each a slight hug. "Um, this is kinda our first day here, we're not students yet or anything, we just came to look around."

___________

Emily jumped back a little bit as the ball of fire appeared in Moore's hands. Ah just how many times had she seen that little spell of molten death. It kinda made her remember some games she had not thought of for ages. Snapping back into reality she spoke. "Only magic and gaming perks? All i can do is make people not notice me." Emily commented as she watched the fireball in Moore's hands. Then she realized that this was the perfect opportunity to get some stuff off her heart. Truth be told she was rather anxious and nervous because of some of the discoveries she made last night. "Um, Moore i know we're not that close and all, but can i show you something?" she asked in an innocent tone as she bit her lower lip a little bit.

@Fehafare:

"Excellent." Sir Pokolson said. "Mister Blaine is outside." He added, rising from his seat. "He will be able to guide you through your classes today, feel free to ask him anything regarding the school."

Opening the door to reveal a tall young man with his long brown hair in a bandanna, Pokolson bowed. "I hope you have a truly educating experience at our school."

-=-=-

"Great to meet you too." Elliott said, returning her hug as Suzanne knocked on the office door. "Want to have a look around the school while you're here?"

-=-=-

"Not at all, let's just see how the girls find the time here-"

There was a knock on the door as Suzy opened it. "Hi mum." She said, waving, before turning to Hagane and Aleister. "We're just going to show Mary and Lily around and holycrapthat'saleistercrownholycrapholycrapholycrapiloveyousomuchholycrap."

Hagane looked at Aleister with a raised eyebrow as the blonde girl's previously confident speech quickly turned into high-pitched gibberish.

-=-=-

"So that's how we got out of class so easily?" Moore asked Emily, closing his fireball. "I would kill to have that kind of stealth skill."

Listening to her request, Moore nodded. "Sure, what is it?"

@SamJaz:

"Thank you." the second time Ciel actually thanked someone. Though much more formal than that night with Elliott it still counted and she did mean it. With that out of the way she got up and made her way to the door meeting face to face with the bandana wearing student. She obviously had no idea what to say so she just stood still and stared at him waiting for him to make the first move.

_________

"Sure, that would be great actually." Mary replied, doing her best to hide her smile of satisfaction because of the hug.

Lily just stood there still leaning onto the wall.

_________

Crown turned around as the door opened, the daughter of the principal and apparently the girl that would show Mary and Lily around, great they were in good hands. But before he could go on with anything the girl's words were all replaced with high pitched squeels of excitement. Crap. Given the stuff that had happened lately Crown wasn't all that much aware of his celebrity status, not being in the spotlight kinda made him forget that. With a nervous smile he looked over to Hagane to see her reaction.

_________

"Really? Well girl's don't like being ignored you know." Emily joked as she sat down, the mood quickly changing. "Friday evening. A man appeared in my room. He was bleeding and obviously about to die so i wanted to help him. He grabbed me and kissed me." Emily paused for a moment, obvious still affected by the whole incident. "It was disgusting really, but that's not the point. The police just concluded that it was a hobo, but i'm sure it wasn't. I think that's what gave me these powers i have. And well, before he died he scanned me. With one of these." Emily spoke as she pulled up her sleeve to reveal a small computer mounted there.

"It's called an EspComp and i got it on Sunday by mail. Not address or name, not even a note." Emily started the computer up and started typing something before turning it to Moore to see. What he saw was a forum with a rank list of various Espers. Their nicknames, powers, score and number of kills. Various threads commenting on kills and deaths of certain Espers and even bets as to who will die next. Emily scrolled down the ranking list all the way to the bottom. There was a picture of her. Her name and age. The powers were still unknown in detail, but the number of points she'd yield wasn't.

Many times higher than any reward of those around her.

@Fehafare:

"Name's Gordon." The bandana-wearing boy said to Ciel as Pokolson closed the door behind them. "Great to meet you. You enjoy cooking?" He asked, leading the way down the corridor.

-=-=-

"Cool, just need to… Suzy!" Elliott called, and the blonde girl snapped out of her fangasm.

"Right, sorry, we'll take good care of your… daughters… See you later!" Suzy said nervously, rushing out of the room and towards Lily, Mary and Suzy. "Your dad's Aleister Crown!?"

"And my mother's a billionaire market trader, big wow." Elliott said sarcastically, before leading the group. "Off we go. So, what do you guys want to see first?"

-=-=-

"You do seem to have that effect on a girl." Hagane whispered into Crown's ears as Suzy left the room, before turning back to Mrs. Sanders as she started apologising for her daughter. "No, it's fine, really." Hagane replied.

"Thank you." Mrs. Sanders replied. "She's a wonderful girl, but can forget herself sometimes. I'm sure you know what they're like at that age."

-=-=-=-=-

Moore smirked at the joke, but focused while listening to Emily's story. He knew what it was like not to have anyone his own age he could talk to about his abilities, so he wanted to help Emily any way he could. When it came to examining the device, however, he was stumped.

"I've never seen one of these before." Moore explained. "I know a guy in Sweden who's good with technology, and there's a couple of people around here that know some alien tech, but this looks like fairly normal electronics, topic's discussed notwithstanding."

Espcom… Espcom… Espcom… this didn't look like anything Pokolson knew how to deal with, this kind of death match wasn't something he'd know about…

"Miss Turner." Moore realised. "She's part of some librarian cult that guard all knowledge or something, she's probably our best best to getting some answers."

@SamJaz:

"Not particularly." Ciel replied. She never even cooked before. The closest she ever came to cooking was while crossing the desert, but just being a snake dead with a stick and then eating it raw probably didn't count as cooking for this guy anyway.

_____________

"We don't really call him dad, but yeah he's awesome." Mary replied. "Well, what's the most fun thing around here? Or should we keep the best for last? Ah whatever just lead the way." she added and Lily got off the wall and finally walked over to the other three.

_____________

"Yeah, honestly i forgot about that." Crown whispered back before turning to Mrs. Sanders. "It's alright, we've all been through a phase like that one way or another. Used to it by now."

_____________

"Eh, what?" Emily asked confused. For a moment it came to her that Moore might now have some gaming powers but might just be crazy. Ah nonsense, he just made a fireball before her eyes and besides, if she was going to call him crazy right here because of that, what chances did she have with other believing her psychic death game story.

@Fehafare:

"So, what do you enjoy?" Gordon asked Ciel, making conversation as they travelled.

-=-=-=-

"Most fun thing around here's probably the gym." Suzy told Mary and Lily, leading the way. "You two into any sports?"

-=-=-=-

"Yes, I remember back when Sting was the big thing." Mrs. Sanders told Aleister. "Well, they might take a while, would you like a tour of the campus also, or would you prefer to explore the area around the school?"

-=-=-=-

"Yeah, I didn't believe it at first, until she loaned me some magical tomes that taught me my spells." Moore told Emily, walking towards the library. "She can walk into any space where books are stored and travel to any other collection of documents throughout space and time, apparently. It's worth a shot to see if she can get documentation on the company."

It briefly occurred to Moore that even if Paige Turner had the ability to obtain such information, she might not be willing to lend them out. She did refuse to let him touch that hand-written edition of the Iliad, signed by the author, so they might obtain similar problems with legal documents.

Still. It was worth a shot.

@SamJaz:

"I don't know." Ciel replied plainly. She really didn't know. She didn't too much free time to ever find out what she really liked and what she did not.

_______________

"Is gardening a sport?" Mary joked as she rubbed the back of her head. "Well i guess i enjoy jogging from time to time." she added as she looked over

to Lily who was still not joining in on the conversation.

_______________

"We can check the area around the school anytime, on the other hand a campus tour would be great if you have the time for that." Crown replied as he

got up.

_______________

"Sounds like there's many things i'm not aware of? And most others it seems too." Emily said as she pondered about all the possibilities there were

now that she could accept the existence of the supernatural and would also be introduced to it openly.

@Fehafare:

"So, you should probably find that out about yourself." Gordon suggested, before turning around a corner and opening a door. "Here's our first class." He added, inviting her inside to meet her form tutor.

Maria Olafsson, a biology professor that used to be a famous Norwegian surgeon, now a school teacher in London. "Welcome aboard." She said unenthusiastically, before handing Ciel a couple of books, including her class timetable. "Take a seat."

Out of the other students in the room, apart from Ciel and Gordon, one stood out. Sat in a corner at the back, the seats next to him and in front of him were unoccupied. His dark hair covered his face, which was set to a permanent scowl.

Gordon sat in the middle row, with an extra seat by the window next to him.

-=-=-=-=-

"Gardening?" Elliott asked as they walked. "Not.. particularly… though the greenhouse is pretty impressive if that's what you're into." She added as they group changed direction.

-=-=-=-=-

"Excellent." Principal Sanders said, walking around her desk and opening the door. "Perhaps you'd first like to visit our library, then meet some of the lecturers here?"

-=-=-=-=-

"As far as I understand, something like unto rule 34 can be applied to the Hidden World." Moore told Emily before immediately regretting his choice of words. "Like, if you can imagine it, it exists in some way or form in the Hidden World. There's a legendary martial arts school in Japan, there's an alien army stationed over in Kansas, although that's hardly a secret." He shrugged. "I dunno, weird stuff just seems… normal nowadays."

He opened the door to the Library. "Maybe I'm just getting used to it, but it's life. I guess."

@SamJaz:

Ciel only nodded without speaking with the professor. She took a look at the time table.

That little piece of paper would control her everyday life from now on. Though she never spent much time in a school, she understood that much. She look around the classroom for a moment, nothing special really. Only average kids enjoying an average life with no worries attached, or at least that's how Ciel saw the whole situation. She sat next to Gordon, figuring it would be for the best as he was her guide for the day.

_____________

"Well i kinda am, that's one of those things i'm good at." Mary replied, slowing down a little bit to fall back. She had to admit, the girls had rather well formed... behinds.

"Um, anyone into cooking?" she asked as they walked, still not paying attention to her seemingly mute sister.

_____________

"I don't think visiting the library is necessary, what do you think Hagane?." Crown replied, he had seen enough libraries in his life and he had one right at home. "Meeting the lecturers would be great though." he added as he waited for the response of his girlfriend.

_____________

Emily listened to Moore listing all the crazy stuff going on in the world. Frankly, it was really hard to believe. But on the other hand she was an Esper and he was playing the most realistic virtual reality game out there, so why even bother debating it? As they entered the library Emily sighed and added. "Nothing against you Moore, but damn i hope i won't end up with a mind set like that by the end of the day."

@Fehafare:

As Olafsson was reading off the announcements, she got a text informing her to meet some parents during the five minute gap between classes. Rolling her eyes, she picked up her coat and headed for the door. "Your break's starting early." She told the students, leaving the room five minutes before the bell was scheduled to ring. "Class dismissed."

Gordon blinked, then shrugged. "You need pie." He decided, getting up from his seat. "Come on, we've got time to hit the cafeteria before History starts."

-=-=-=-=-

"I don't, but Suzy's not bad with a frying pan." Elliott told Mary, then noticing Lily. "You okay?" She asked the silent twin.

-=-=-=-=-

While Hagane was somewhat looking forward to the Library, she didn't show the mild disappointment on her face since, as Aleister said, it wasn't necessary. And she wouldn't get to take anything home anyways, even if she did see something she hadn't read before. "Sure." She agreed, getting to her feet as the sounds of heavy footsteps started rushing towards them. Turning around, She saw a massive man in a suit, his short hair slicked back with sweat, and the man himself panting for air as tears streamed down his face.

"I'm sorry Principal Sanders, I just…" He said, before turning to Aleister Crown. "Mister Crown. My name is Henry Macguffle. You knew my father?"

@SamJaz:

Ciel wasn't particularly into the whole idea of pie. But what use was there to resisting anyway. Not replying she got out of her seat and followed her classmate.

_____________

"Cool, we can share recipes?" Mary asked while Elliott talked with Lily. "I'm fine..." Lily replied silently, not even looking Elliott in the eyes.

_____________

"Macguffle?" Crown asked curiously as she stopped for a moment. Looking at the young man and thinking for a moment, had him grit his teeth slightly as he realized why he knew the name so well.

"Indeed i did." he replied in a sharp tone, thinking back to his old tutor.

@Fehafare:

As Ciel was dragged off by Gordon, who was talking about all the different kind of pies the school cafeteria served, a small, green text box appeared in Ciel's vision.

={ Got stuck with some new girls. One's cool, the other's frigid as that frost place yesterday. What're you up to? }=

={ Who'd you get showing you around? }=

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Before Suzy could reply to Mary, Elliott's and Lily's conversation suddenly started looking more interesting than her own. "You don't look it." Elliott told Lily. "Go on, what's on your mind?"

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Henry breathed deeply as Aleister confirmed what he already knew, but hoped wasn't true.

"I'm sorry." The young man said, not looking Crown in the eye. "I'd hoped I was the only one, but you know just what my father was like behind closed doors too…"

Henry Macguffle broke down to his knees, then gripped Aleister's trouser's tightly and sobbed, apologising profusely as Hagane and Principal Sanders both stepped back from the situation and watched awkwardly, both feeling like third wheels to this unexpected drama.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Moore thought about Emily's concern as they walked through the Library, then shrugged. "One of my perks is Gamers Mind." He explained. "It affects my mind somehow to help me keep my cool, so that's probably why I'm not gibbering in a corner somewhere while nice people in white coats try to spoon feed me. Hi Miss Turner."

"Cheery conversation." Paige Turner said from behind her desk, turning to Emily. "Guessing you've just joined the club?"

@SamJaz:

Ciel wasn't there mentally as Gordon spoke. She found much more delight in the little chat she criticized a few days ago. Yeah, as strange as it may sound between this guy and Elliott she'd go for Elliott. Thinking for a moment about her own situation Ciel replied through the chat, it appearing on a silver panel, black letters with a slight blueish glow. =[Going to the cafeteria.
