"Well what are you to me. Freak is normal here." She had another spell of dark memories when Vince spoke about his addicted mother and the Trafficker father. It took her a lot longer to work her way through them this time. "Well anyway, If someone after you and try something half the bloody city will come charging. Not only the capes but some of the villains as well. Not all supers here are related to the good guys. Thought don't think they would tell you who they be related to."
She looked in the direction Vince went "I go make sure Mr. Hot head doesn't have a melt down." Then she was off others came and Misty's willingness to be a goody goody only lasts so long.
Personal rules of good roleplay
1.) Nothing goes as planned.
2.) If it goes as planned it's not good RP
seeming to notice how he almost didn't have any friends at this point, the 2 girls left ,so did that kid with the weird body temperature thing ,he tuned to the the lunch room and walked in there, resting his hands onto the table as he was listening to his music, only to be interrupted by the lunch lady, "You cant be in here sweetie ,you know that its going to get you suspended again.." He looked back up at her and let out a sigh before getting up and waking to his art class, dropping down with oddly enough no food at all ,his chest starting to hurt a bit as he grew about a half a cm every 10 minutes.
Note: Jorortis is still a character of mine and is still going to be in the super group, not Demirus, at least not yet...
The departure of Vincent left Toni only somewhat worried; he had a means of coping, as long as somebody didn't confiscate it. Alicia's offer to Natalia, actually seemed like a good idea.
"Well, if working out works out for you, that's great! Let me know if you need any help, or some constructs to pummel, or just to talk. I'll be around." From what Alicia had said, she could do quite well as a punching bag, but if Natalia needed one when Alicia wasn't available... Toni smiled at the two girls and headed off to his class.

As keith walked down the hall headed to art class, he saw dennis heading the same way. He recongnized him from this class, but they never really talked...."Hey man, its down here," He said to dennis as he wasnt sure if he was going to turn down the same hall...."It's Dennis right?" keith asked just trying to strkie up a conversation. Keith was one of the popular kids.. he got invited to all the parties, played sports, even had a high GPA. He never had to try and fit in, he just did. Self confident but not smug, he also was friendly to everyone, or tried to be.
He looked over toward Keith and answered."Yeah, hows it going?"
"Can't complain...." he walked next to Dennis making small talk all the way to class. " So you going to the party ay monica's house?"....He had reached into his bag and was eating a powerbar. He ate a few of them during the day , coach asked him to to build up his proteins and potassium. He also pulled out a banana and started eating it. "Oh and were in history together right?...you late today? didnt see you in first period"....
Vince found a nice little nook under a staircase and sprawled his effects out. He planted his rump against the side of the wall and kicked his legs vertical with his back on the floor. It looked sort of like he was sitting with the wall as the floor, but not quite. His phone started blipping away as he looked through the browsers he had marked. His face still had the distorted look of annoyance. That all seriously played out that way. His entire life trivialized by a Self-Hating Vampire. Maybe it was for the best that he left out the part that he had to do light trafficking to pay for this month's chaser supply... His father was hospitalized, so there was that. Thinking about it now, he sent his dad a text anyways. 'Hey dad. Having a blast here. Made a dozen friends already. Everyone makes it really easy to get to know one another.' He lied. He lied hard to try to cheer up the man covered in burns. He hit the send button with a sigh and put the phone down to spread his arms out to his sides. He got a stare or two from faculty walking the halls.
He considered apologizing for shouting at the vampire, what was her name? Natalie? Natalia? Miss Violin? Something like that. It was European sounding. The more he thought about it though, the more justified he felt. "Hey, ghost-chick, you here?" He took the phone and pointed it around, trying to offer it as a medium. He thought he remembered somewhere that ghosts could hijack phones and show up in digital cameras, but that was on a reality show. And when are REALITY shows ever reflective of actual reality?
Stalkers don't die: They simply... Disappear.
Dennis started to somewhat eye the mans food, only to look back towards where they were walking."I don't normally go to parties just to much confrontation happens at parties, and to answer your other question I was in the cafeteria first period then I went into the training room." He started to stretch a bit ,reaching into his jacket pocket and pulled out a baggy of chocolates, dumping down the whole baggie into his mouth until it was empty.
Seeing dennis devour the entire bag quite fast, Keith removed the powerbars from his pack..."still hungry?" he offered the rest of the box to dennis. There were at least 6 left, in this box. " I got more...."
Dennis looked down as saw the box.'Oh I couldn't."He had a slight pause before continuing.'Who am I kidding yes I could." He grasped the box started to eat the bars quite savagely."thanks."
"No problem" keith said as he opened the door to class. He walked in with dennis behind him , and took a seat. He enjoyed the art class as well because it was history based. Art history would have been more appropriate a title.
Dennis walked in right behind Keith and sat down 2 seats behind Keith as he was waiting for the teacher to begin with the art lesson.
Her Ghostly voice responded "Maybe" He didn't need the phone as her body materialized standing right there one leg on the left side of Vince head and the other one on the right. "Trying to take a panty shot?"
Natalia nodded to Alicia, not put off by the girl's emotional wall or confidence in her own abilities...seeing it was...admirable. She then turns to Toni, and actually offers a smile to him, a genuine smile as she states.
"I will keep that in mind, Toni. And thank you for your counsel, both of you." She then turns back to Alicia, stating curtly with a growing confidence. "I am ready, do lead the way."
"Well... If you're gonna make it that easy..." The inevitable click of the phone went off. Boys will be boys? He gave a mischievous little smirk before twisting himself around to try to sit up like a normal person. He ended up with his back to the wall like it was supposed to be, though taking in the Ghost's image was a bit of a trick. He almost immediately recognized the pinholes as a stage 4 addict. It was something he saw a bit in Ironport though, so it wasn't shocking. His features didn't even betray the glance, nor did he show any signs of indifference. "Nice butt... But why follow me anyways? I thought I was the jerk of the picture right around now."
Connor, who had been walking down the hall with his clipboard in hand, stops to look at Vince and his odd sitting position. He looks up and down the hallway, spotting the ghost girl for a moment. He rolled his eyes, and looked back to Vince again.
"Hey, she's not bothering you, is she?" He asks in a reasonably polite tone.
Alicia nods, turning around briskly before leading the way through the school back to the Danger Room. Thankfully, it was, at least for the moment, abscent of any other students, just in case anything got out of hand.
"This should be suitable," Alicia says, looking over her shoulder at Natalia as the two enter, "what exactly makes you worry about hurting others?"
Natalia responds curtly as expected, but not rudely or in a snapping manner.
"Because of my abilities, and while they my not be up to par or equal to your's, it appears, my training serves as a reliable substitute. And because I have gone into bouts of rage before, not against innocents of course...but the idea always permeates the back of my mind, moreso when I hunger."
Alicia turns back to give the room another look. "I understand completely," she responds, her voice quiet and somewhat soft, "it's a very...Difficult, thing to overcome. I have been told that it will take a lot of time, and twice as much effort. Neither thought is comforting, but such things rarely are."
She turns to look over her shoulder again. "How do you wish to start?"
Natalia nods slowly at that, letting Alicia's words sink in before replying in her growing confident yet subdued tone.
"Perhaps we simply begin a basic spar, nothing extravagant or fancy, no abilities?" She then adds, almost as an afterthought. "Alicia...afterwards...would you like to talk or maybe eat lunch with me?" She doesn't mean it awkwardly or in the manner of a date, but she is also not clearly experienced with such social situations.
"Jerk in actions not in mind." She backed up and subconsciously put her hand over the puncture marks when she heard Connor "Oh no officer I'm a good girl, yes I am. Naw Vince here has foot in mouth disease I think he tasted his calf. Now he's pouting because he told a secret and the person he told didn't react that much. Never mind that she's new here and might not even know what he was telling her. OR that he's pouting for she was so focused on herself that she didn't pay attention to him being focused on himself. Something like that."
It was a bit of a strange request, but Alicia showed no outward signs. "I suppose I can, yes," she says before walking a bit further into the room. She finally turns around to face Natalia properly, striking a defensive stance. "You may strike first. Whenever you are ready."
"Well, at least one of you noticed what I was trying to do..." Vince piped up his own personal input to try to straighten out the message. "Or... I was trying to make things right after a girl made herself cry by trying to tell her say we're basically the same..." Vince Shook his head. "You know, that hashtag teen-drama crap of the day-to-day." He joked like his dad would. Making fun at the little things that seemed so super duper huge on the teen level of life.
Connor looked back and forth between the two, seemingly more than just a little confused. "That's, uh...Two very different accounts of something I have no actual knowledge of," Connor responds with a scratch of his head and a look to Misty. The snark sure was strong with that one, if anything. "Are you gonna go...Fix whatever happened? Or something?"
Dennis convinced the art teacher to let him leave ,he did still have to repair the snack machine after all, so that's what he said he was going to do, and he figured he should at least attempt to fix it to stay out of even more unnecessary trouble, he was walking twords i, that's where he saw Vince as well as the "ghost." and even Connor."He took he tools that the art teacher had giving him and knocked on the side of the stairs.
Natalia nods, before making a incredibly fast first series of strikes, first a powerful sweepkick, then a spinning backhand and elbow strike.
The flurry of the first few strikes catches Alicia off-guard, and she takes every single one of them before hopping backwards and changing her stance. After taking a split second to regain her composure, she starts to focus. "How durable are you?" She asks, switching up her stance again. Perhaps she was preparing to go on the offensive?
After quite a while of tinkering Dennis completed fixing the snack machine and placed down the tools, eating a few of those bars the guy had given him, he figured the art teacher didn't know anything about snack machines, so he wouldn't have a clue how long it would take for him to fix, so he used the spare time to go to the danger room to try and get some lifts in ,only to find to people in there fighting.."oooookay then.."He made a complete 360 and went back out into the hall ,thinking about heading to art.
Alicia would have felt that though she is not as strong as Alicia, her blows are still powerful and can be painful to one of her durability. At Alicia's question, she comments curtly.
"Very, I am more vulnerable to piercing weapons as it so happens, blunt force is merely that." With that, she attacks again with a series of swift martial jabs and strikes, giving Alicia time to block however, as this is a simple spar.
"Understood," Alicia says as the next round of punches starts to fly. This time around, she catches each with her palms, seemingly without much effort. "You don't have to hold back if you don't want to. I can take it." As soon as the opportunity presents itself, she stages a counter-attack in the form of a light jab towards her stomach, seemingly thrown just to catch her off-guard if it lands. She notices Dennis briefly from the corner of her eye, but seeing as he appeared to be leaving, and the fact that she's in the middle of a spar, fails to acknowledge him.
Natalia takes the blow, grunting if only slightly. Nodding to Alicia, she proceeds to go for another sweepkick and following with a digging elbow strike, finishing the combo with a swift uppercut. Now not holding back, her blows would feel like being hit with a speeding truck, to put it mildly. In the midst if this, she speaks neutrally.
"I've never been able to fight so unhindered before aside from fighting demons or vampires...thank you for this."
"Eh, screw it." Dennis figured there was no point in going back so he just turned and went into he danger room ,walking to the highest point of the bleachers and looking at the two spar with each other ,his arms crossed over one another as he looked on.
Alicia moves past the first two, but the uppercut sends her flying upwards for a foot or two. She rolls backwards as she hits the ground, the springs forward with a cross-kick followed by two jabs to the chest. If those disrupted her form, a right-hook would surely follow. This time around, she puts a bit more power behind her punches. The power of each strike differs slightly, indicating that she's still trying to keep her strength under control.
"I understand. Holding back is a battle in and of itself," she says with equal calm.
"Me fix what happened? Like be helpful. What you take me for a nice girl?" With that she faded from view it was hard keeping her appearance. Thought of course Conor would still see her.
Natalia manages to duck under the crosskick with striking speed but as a consequence is forced to take both jabs. Rearing back from the right hook connecting, Natalia simply responds with a combo of a swift knee to the the gut, a right backhand, and a kick up the length of her body aimed at Alicia's face. She takes a brief second of respite to reply.
"Often more trying then external conflicts themselves, your self and emotional control is admirable, and you are a respectable opponent."
Alicia stumbles with the first blow, and rolls with the momentum of the backhand. When the kick comes, she shifts herself sideways, grabbing the leg, and pulling Natalia forwards as she raises an elbow to hit her in the face. If the maneuver worked, it would hopefully allow for enough time for Alicia to put some distance between the two. Alicia seems to have stopped speaking for now, her expression one of intense concentration instead.
Expecting the leggrab but not the elbow to the face, Natalia takes it without being fazed, and proceeds to use her current position to her advantage as she promptly kicks up to Alicia's face with her unlocked leg, rolling back to regain a defensive posture, now silent in utter concentration as well.
The counter lands right where it was intended to, and Alicia is forced to fall back slightly as well. She eyes her opponent, flicking her vision up to the still - watching Dennis for a moment. "We have an audience," she says, pausing for a moment before rushing forward, as if to deliver a jab. At the last moment, she fakes out, stepping around her opponent and jabbing her elbow towards the back of her head.
Natalia narrowly avoids thelebow by rolling forward, instantly lashing out with her right curled leg with the speed of a cobra at Alicia's left knee, intending to send her to the floor for a spinning roundhouse, as she comments. "It seems we do." She states, regarding his scent and location by the sound of his heartbeat without looking in his direction.
Dennis just stood there watching, hearing there acknowledgement of him ,pulling out another one of those bars he got from Keith, everyone of there hits making a loud impact sound as he munched on his food.
Alicia hits the ground, hard. Natalia was fast, that was certain. It was about time Alicia started keeping up. She rolled back as she hit the ground, aiming to jab her legs at her opponent while simultaneously getting herself back into a less vulnerable position. Should she miss, however, then there was still that incoming kick from Natalia to deal with...
Natalia sinks to the ground at Alicia's jab, as she deduces that while her own ace was speed, Alicia's was power in strikes, and that she should play to her strengths. That said, she follows through with her roundhouse, curious as how to counter Alicia's next move.
The roundhouse hits, but doesn't keep Alicia down just yet. She manages to pull herself into a crouching position, her arms guarded in a crouched position. She waits for an opening, then springs forward in a tackle.
Keith had come in as well, saw dennis and came over and sat next to him. He had two large sodas with ice, and a bout half a dozen hotdogs. "anything good ?" he asked as handed dennis 4 of the dogs and a soda.....He bit into one of them, watching the display below. "I take it you need to eat for a reason" .......
Natalia is caught unprepared for the tackle, taken down to the floor hard, grateful at the adapting nature of the room as they fight on the now matted floor. Adapting quickly to the movement however, Natalia simply proceeds to hike up her legs and attempt to launch Alicia off of her with a incredibly strong forward donkey kick of sorts.
Alicia guards in time, but the pure force of the kick still knocks her into the air. She recovers in time for a less-than-rough landing, but the important part was that Natalia had her mobility back.
Alicia takes a moment to catch her breath. "How are you feeling," she asks after a deep breath.
Dennis gladly took the hot dogs and soda, bringing one to his mouth before pausing."Yeah ,well they have been sparring for quite sometime....its getting good." He took a large bite that took half of the hot dog down and swallowed after chewing it a bit. before starting up."Yes I do have to eat, long story short I am the Physical embodiment of one of the 7 deadly sins...can you guess which one?" with that he took another bite finishing off he hot dog picking up another taking a large bite.
"Lust"..keith joked.....he watched the mellee below...He finished the hotdog he was eating, and offered his second to Dennis. "It's nearly lunch anyway...."
Dennis smiled at the joke and replied."Yep ain't I just irresistible" By the time Keith brought his attention back to Dennis all of the hot dogs he had given him were gone as was the soda." It's not all bad, Im strong fast and he held open his hand a bone colored shell coated up to his hand to his forearm."What ever the hell this is."
Natalia rolls to her feet, not taking a moment to catch her breath due to being technically dead, but resting one the less, as it appeared there were equal in the aspect of combat and fighting skills, though Natalia figured she was holding back. Nonetheless, she nodded and offered a genuine smile to Alicia as she answered.
"Refresh, rested emotionally, and in control." With that said, she added curtly as the forth period bell rang out. "You were a worthy combatant Alicia, well fought, though I believe this is a draw?"
Alicia returns to a neutral position, and offers a respectful nod. "I believe you landed more hits than I was able to, but if you wish to call it a draw, then so it shall be." She looks up to the clock as the bell rings. "I believe you mentioned lunch earlier."
Keith took notice of the oddity, then said...."well sir, it's just about lunchtime, " he stood up then said, "gonna get an extra batting practice in before the game tonight"....he offered dennis his cell number....then waved , "see ya round"
Dennis took his number and pushed it into his pocket the bone like substance over his hand was now faded away ,and he jumped down from the bleacher near the 2 girls and gave them praise."That was entertaining , you guys are great." He gave a smile, holding the door open for them.
Connor shrugs. "I was really talking to him about that, but if you're not going to try, then I guess it'll just stay the way it is. Which was probably, uh...Really awkward." He purses his lips a bit. "Might as well try, right?"
Alicia looks over at Dennis as he lands, giving him a respectful nod as well when he lands. "Thank you," she states simply, "it was a challenging fight. It is clear that Natalia works hard."
Natalia nods with a slight smirk upon her face. "Then we will determine the winner in a rematch at a later date, if you so desire. And Yes, I believe it's time for lunch on my end....and on that note, I need to visit the Nurse's office on the way down there before I eat, shall we?" She gestures to the door, not a hint of shame in her voice as she mentions what she is about to do.
Elsewhere, Rose evacuates History as she heads down to the lunch room. Choosing a empty table of eight seats near the courtyard, Rose leaves her bag there as a indicator of her presence before departing for the lunch line.
Alicia nods. "Very well," she says, heading to the door. "Will you be coming?" She asks with a nod to Dennis.
Holding the door, Natalia then adds in commentation.
"I also need to make amends with the hothead, my replies were cold and shouldn't have been voiced." She then turns to Dennis, and replies to his compliment.
"Thank you, though the goal wasn't entertainment, merely stress relief."
"Uh, yes" Dennis answered as he walked with the 2 ladies out the door and into the lunch room, getting quite a bit of food as it was chest high when he sat at his seat and placed down his tray, there were 7 canned sodas and a 2 liter , about 6 cheeseburgers and 4 bags of BBQ chips only to be coupled with even more doughnuts and 5 sliced of rather large pizza.
He started his vigorous eating, his hands getting that same bone like armor over the both of his large hands as his body is made for eating the bone on his hands to protect his hands from his wild bites and what not, it was like feeding time at the zoo, only worse.
Robert would be sitting in the Nurses office moving his hand thought it would seem he was doing random moves. In truth he seemed to figure out how to manipulate the HUD display he now sees. "This is freaky."
Misty blinked "Oh you meant him? Well sure little Miss European chick might like to talk or something. There were others there and I think they like cared or something." Yup being nice was over.
That sure didn't take long.
"...What was it all about anyway? I wasn't even here," Connor asks, ruffling his hair, "I'm just catching the fallout, here.
Alicia follows Dennis to the lunch room while Natalia takes her detour, collecting a much more modest amount of food before sitting down to watch Dennis eat. "Is this normal?" She asks quietly.
He looked up for a moment, his hands going back to normal as he looked back up to her , and he wiped his mouth and lowered his hands to his lap."The eating yeah, i'm sorry I cant really help it."
"Don't ask me Handsome. I maybe a trouble maker, tease, and loose where it comes to laws, but I don't tell other people secrets. A girl gotta have her standard."
"I was only curious, it isn't a problem," Adalhaid says as she takes a few bites from her own food, "is there a particular reason?"
"Well ,you should know about the 7 deadly sins." He clasped his hands. "Well ,I am the true embodiment of gluttony, its a curse I have to eat or else ,well things get bad."
"Leaving already?" Vince asked as Misty faded from view. He had a sort of puppy-dog 'aww' to his voice, a cutesy teen boy thing, but there wasn't too much effort to sound 'cute' there. The Connor's question, he replied with "Classified" somewhat mechanically, but with just a ping of sarcastic humor. "The whole debacle was about trying to explain to the girl that I ain't gonna tell her secret. So guess who's not going to go running around telling secrets? This guy!" Vince paused and backtracked in the conversation a little bit. "But really, I didn't do anything but noticed something funky with her face. I started to say something about it, noticed something else, then remembered to not be a racist bastard... Then she explodes in my face, makes me out to be a jerk, so I gotta try to make things okay." Vince was getting tired of explaining the situation. "Basically, If anyone wants to mend the situation, it's on her head. I damn well tried, and it just put me in one hell of an awkward situation with one hell of an audience."
"Naw hot stuff I'm still here. Just it's like hard to be seen. Like holding a muscle tight eventually I grow tired." A laugh was heard "Like I said he stuck his foot in his mouth. He has like no skill at women."
Vince, Misty, and Connor would be interrupted by Natalia's Eastern European accent cutting through the air like a knife.
"Oh trust me, he made that VERY clear." She then turns to Vince, as her facial expression softens...a tiny bit. "First and foremost, I apologize for 'exploding' in your face. Second, my dismissal of your origin was also wrong, so I apologize there as well. And lastly? I will keep your secret, don't worry, but I think we can both agree that situation could have been handled much better."
She awaits his reply, absentmindedly tracing the scarlet opal on her amulet as she leans against the wall near the Nurse's office placidly.
Elsewhere, Rose, decides on a simple lunch of country fried steak, mashed potatoes in brown gravy, and a butter glazed southern roll. The added benefit of clearly freshly cooked food versus freezer locked meals is another tasteful aspect that sets this school apart from others, in quality.
Gathering a a bit of courage, Rose moves to walk over to Dennis's and Alicia's table, as she offers a cordial smile.
"May I sit here? And it's a pleasure to meet you both, I'm Rosella Burdelon, or Rose."
"Of course, nice to meet you too I am Dennis Cain, you can call me what ever you want though." he smiled back at her, motioning his hand over the open seat near them.
Rose smiles as she does indeed take a seat, before moderately digging into her country fried steak, taking a moment to thoroughly chew before speaking.
"Nice to meet you Dennis! And is that normal?" She points to the bones on his hands.
"Yes it is normal, its also necessary."He gave her a smile, as he grabbed onto a cheeseburger and took a bite.
Connor remains silent, cringing a bit as the other half of the earlier confrontation shows up. "Oookay, here we go," he says quietly, secretly hoping that things don't take a turn for the worse."
Alicia doesn't offer her name to the new arrival, mainly because she wasn't asked. Instead, she offered a simple nod, and went right back to her food.
Smiling to Dennis, Rose nods, before turning to introduce herself to Alicia.
"Oh I'm sorry, excuse my lack of manners. What's your name?"
After Algebra, Toni headed to the cafeteria. A bit of extra fish sticks went into a bag for Setzer, and more on the plate for Toni. He spotted Rose, next to Alicia and someone he didn't recognize... He went over to the table. "Hi Rose, Alicia." To the stranger he said, "Hi, I'm Toni. Mind if I sit here?"
Rose smiled as Toni arrived, gesturing for him to sit on the other side of her as she turned to introduce him.
"Toni, meet Dennis, Dennis, this is my friend Toni." She takes a moment to savor her mashed potatoes and gravy before remarking to Toni. "So I was thinking after rehearsal this afternoon, maybe a bite to eat and then we head to the Central Library?"
"Sounds good. Titan Taco, or were you thinking something a bit more sit-down?" Toni poured a squirt of catsup onto his plate and dipped a couple of fries in it before popping them into his mouth.
Rose smiles as she replies.
"Titan Taco is fine. I'm curious if you can survive their salsa, I was raised to take the heat, being Cajun...but you have no such defenses." She jokes, afterwards digging into her steak moderately.
Andy strolled into the cafeteria and looked around. His eyes were immediately drawn to the massive frame of Dennis, sitting with Toni, Rosie, and the new girl, Alicia. He made his way through the lunch line, opting for two cheeseburgers, a plate of fries, a piece of chilled peanut butter pie, and a large whole milk.
He approached the table. "Hello again Alicia, Dennis. How'd you end up sitting with these two miscreants?" he asked, a sly grin on his face. He knew both Rosie and Toni from the dojo, having taught Toni and having been the "Red Man" in several of Benji's Krav Maga classes. He sat down next to Rose.
Putting yourself in another persons shoes emotionally is something that everyone has to experience eventually. It's part of learning to be a human being. Roleplayers do it for fun.
The large man looked over to Toni and smiled, extending his hand for him to shake."Nice to meet you." He looked over to Andy and smiled to him as well."Nice to meet you too." Once again he extended his hand out towards him as well.
Andy put down the first half-eaten cheeseburger and wiped the grease off, then shook the big man's hand. "You too."
Robert walked out of the nurses office. His eyes seem more normal just the iris now was silvery and there were faint lights on the lens. "Thanks for letting me rest a bit." He spotted Connor, Vince, and Natalia. Completely unaware of Misty. He headed into the cafeteria to get his lunch. As he waited in line he scanned the room for people he knew... and that was odd his network started bring up facebook pages and profiles of people he focused on. Those techable might notice he now had WiFi connections and was pinging networks. "this going to take some time getting use to." The Lunch lady made a face "It's School lunch what you expect? Phoenix burgers?"
Many thoughts went through Misty's mind most of them were ideas of how to cause trouble. She kept them to herself and chose not to stir up Drama.
Toni took the offered hand and gave it a firm shake. Not likely the strongest Dennis had encountered, but showing an effort, nonetheless. "Oh, I met Alicia earlier today."
Rose smiles to Andy, remembering him from the dojo, as she comments. "I kinda ambushed them here, respectfully of course! So how are you, Andy?"
Seeing as Kieth is taking a moment to himself, Natalia looked to Connor and stated. "Excuse me for a moment." Connor would note that Natalia's aura, once a placid scarlet, is now pulsing faster and faster like a heartbeat, an indication of her hunger. Rushing into the office, she promptly retrieves her packages from a secured locker after being provided a key, and proceeds to enter the restroom to feed. Returning promptly two minutes later, Natalia appears much more rested and aware, as she smiles to Connor.
"And by the way, I'm Natalia Volin, a new student here, it's a pleasure to meet you."
"I'm...Connor Gateman," he answers hesitantly, looking at the new girl with a raised brow. He leans over, lowering his voice for a moment. "Your uh...'Need to Feed' was showing back there, for a moment," he says calmly, as if this were something he were familiar with.
Alicia quietly lets the group carry on with conversation, smiling to them briefly. She seems to have returned to her default, passive state.
Dennis continued his wild eating seeing how everyone was talking amongst themselves, soon his whole tray and all 7 cans of soda were empty, the bone like plating that was on his hands going away as he walked off for even more food."excuse me for a moment..." He returned later with more food the plateing on his hands returning as he started horking down food again, but he was quiet about it he wasn't a loud eater , just a wild one.
"And I'm Misty Sinclair. Used to go to the school that stood around here... well before the big bad hurricane blew it down. So kind of Haunting the place though I seem to be able to haunt all of Titan City can't cross city limits. Might as well learn something too. Just not to much I got a rep to keep."
Natalia nods to Connor at that, offering him a smile.
"Uhm, thank you Connor. And on that note, are you headed to lunch as well? I do actually eat, I can still taste." She clarifies before turning to Misty with a smirk beginning to crease her lips. "Is that reputation one of infamy, or simple mischief?"
Toni remembered something he hadn't considered. "By the way, Andy, I won't be at tonight's session. I hope that doesn't mess up your lesson plan."
She laughed "That would be telling." Then she was really gone flying down the hall the sound of someone tapping lockers announced her passage.
"No problem, Toni. Thanks for letting me know." Andy said, nodding.
Rose then adds, almost as an afterthought.
"And on that note, I won't be as well, I nearly forgot, and I hope this doesn't force you to change your own plans?"
"Yeah. Food. Food was happening," Connor says as he furrows his brow a bit. "...Not really what I was talking about, but whatever, are you heading there now? I know the way."
