    Soul Eater: Resonance

    Post by Fizzie on Fri Mar 13, 2009 6:28 am

    Death City...

    Shinigami Weapon Meister Vocational School, or Shibusen for short, is a training facility for those known as Meister and Weapon. Together, they keep the world safe from evil souls and the rebirth of Kishin.

    Whilst the partnering of Meister and Weapon has always been the way of Shibusen, the partnering of Weapon and Weapon has recently been welcomed as well. Though things are still very much in an experimental phase, as focus has always been on training Meister/Weapon partnerships.

    Because of this, all the advantages and disadvantages to this partnership have yet to really be discovered.

    The partnership itself has caused controversy with some students, and even teachers. Not everyone is happy with this partnership type for various reasons, and there also seems to be some divide with a small number of Weapons who question the need for Meisters at all.

    It seems things in Shibusen, and thoughout Death City itself, are not as simple as they once were...

    Another sunny morning begins in Death City, and it's the first day of a new year at Shibusen, but not everyone has made it out bed yet...

    Laying spread-out in an untidy manner across her bed, Chloe Tabit, a 15 year old student of Shibusen, still sleeps... until her alarm clock, so "generously" donated to her by her older brother, starts ringing out extremly loudly, and startles her suddenly!!

    As she sits up in her bed, she looks all around her room, trying to figure out where the painfully annoying bells are coming from. She leans over one side of her bed, and shuffles through some clothes that lay in a heap on the floor, finding nothing, but then noticing the sound is coming from under her bed.

    She reaches under, pulls out the horrible clock, and tries to switch it off, but it just carries on ringing!!

    She shakes it violently, but it just carries on ringing!!

    She smacks it again the wall, but it still carries on ringing!!

    And then she does it... she throws it out of the window, which (luckily) is open as she didn't even check first!!

    The song of the clock making a smashing sound at it hits the sidewalk below, is almost as satisfying as the feeling she gets as she wraps her up in a big ball with her duvet, and flumps back down on her bed, letting out a very happy and relaxing sigh.

    But it's short lived, as there's a knock at her door. It can only be one person; her brother, come to steal her from her pink marshmellowie like bed of comfyness.

    She doesn't answer. Maybe if she pretends she not in; he'll go away. Right?

    No. He knocks again, harder this time.

    She still doesn't answer.

    Then her mobile phone starts ringing. But before her brain has a chance to register that it's her phone and not another alarm, she's already sent it soaring out her window.

    Her eyes snap open as she realizes what she's done and she falls out of bed, stumbles quickly to her window, and leans right out, seeing the smashed alarm clock on the floor, and her phone, safe, but in someone else's hand... her brother's.

    "Worst. Morning. Ever." She groans as she lets her head flop, a sure sign of defeat...

    The day began as Chandler Sphynx had always spent it. Alone and perched atop one of the three spires that jutted from the Shibusen academy for Meisters. The sun crested the horizon and he was there to meet it, his pale green eyes catching the light as the sun rose. His coppery hair flew about as the wind caught underneath it, sending it in all directions. His vest and trousers kept him warm enough at such a height and his natural build had muscle enough to insulate him. The sun came fully out and Chandler was already heading down, eager to find out if Lord Shinigami had found a compatible weapon for him this year.

    Trudging through the corridors, few glanced his way and even fewer acknowledged his existance. The meister without a weapon, the weapon theif, Weapon master. All these things were what the other students called him and more that were a little unsavory. He didn't care since he had been spared from madness because of Lord Shinigami and Shibusen, and he owed them everything in return. Students went past, partners of the meisters, the weapons nodded or waved as he walked, small nods returned in kind. He had that about him, meisters disliked him but the weapons felt like they all had a bond with him. Maybe it was true and then maybe he just had an aura of human mistrust.

    The doors to Lord Shinigami's room stood open, Lord Shinigami seeing any new students that wished to join Shibusen's ranks this year. Chandler entered, stood off to the side as the Death God dealt with the latest recruit and called him over. "Oh... Chandler. How good of you to decide on enrolling this year. I wondered when you were going to come out of your funk." Lord Shinigami said, his voice overly excited. "Yes, Lord Shinigami. Thank you for allowing me to join the Meisters of Shibusen. I was wondering if you have yet found a weapon to match my wavelength?" Chandler replied, keeping his gaze firmly on the Death God. Lord Shinigami looked as though he was thinking very hard when his comical hands rose into a cross, a negative. "I'm sorry Chandler, my boy, but I still haven't been able to find the right one for you. Maybe you could help the meisters of your class to understand their weapons better, or maybe help them train with methods you've learned?" Came the reply, not something that Chandler had wanted to hear. Disappointment showing openly on his face, Chandler nodded. "I will strive to make my time in Shibusen worth all the effort you have placed on me, Lord Shinigami." Chandler replied, already heading out of the room. "Don't forget..." The Death God shouted from behind him, "You are with the class in Soul Block, Dagger room!"

    "Standing infront of the class was not my idea of a silent entry..." Chandler fumed as he stood straight, feeling the eyes of all the other student criticize and size him up. "I would have much rathered someone make a big fuss and draw every ounce of attention from me until Lord Shinigami found a suitable weapon."
    "My name is Chandler Sphynx and this is my first year as a Meister."

    Dehx sat looking out of his window; out at the spralling cityscape that was Death City. It was a sunny morning, which was typical. It was the first day of the new year at Shibusen; the holiday had been quite dreary, with a few sunny spells.

    An alarm beeped, dragging him away from the window. It was time for him to go collect his sister; who would no doubtedly still be in bed. He sighed as he stood up to turn the alarm off on the way out of the door. He grabbed his gloves that sat neatly on a shelf by his door and closed the door behind him.

    He left the building where his modest appartment was situated and made haste for Chloe's. It wasn't long before he got there, being only a few hundred yards away.

    He approached the door. Before he reached it, there was a crash behind him. Just behind him, he saw the broken form of the alarm clock he had so kindly donated to her.
    "Chloe!" He said as he shook his head. He entered the building and made his way up to her apartment.

    Within a few minutes, he was knocking on the door. He waited and waited. Still he waited. It was obvious he was going to have to do this the hard ward way. He knocked on the door harder this time; Still there was no answer. He thought he would try a different tact. He pulled out his phone and pulled up her number. He was about to ring it, but had a vision of her phone lying in a broken heap next to the alarm clock.

    He made his way back to the alarm clock, then rung her. It wasn't long before the phone came flying out of the window and headed straight towards him. He snatched it out of the air before it hit the ground and held it out in front of him. He looked towards her window to see her reaching out after the phone. There was a look of defeat on her face as she seemed to mutter something under her breath.
    "Chloe Angel Tabit, get yourself ready and get down here; we're already late." Dehx said in a raised voice as he stood looking at her.

    "I hate it when you call me that..." She mumbles as she turns back from the window.

    Yawning, and with no intention of rushing, she starts pulling draws open, searching for some clean clothes to wear. One by one she tosses her items of choice behind her, onto her bed. A pair of black bottoms, a white vest top with a target image on the front, her black bangles, and her black belted style, cuff. And then her black boots... which land firmly ontop of the white vest.

    "I swear you were dropped on your head as a child." She hears her brother sigh. "You can't wear that now!" He says as he picks-up the white vest, now with dirty sole of boot inprints all over it.

    Before she even has a chance to ask how he even got in to her appartment, Dehx is already checking around for her bag... which he finds... empty.

    "You didn't make your lunch, did you!?" He frowns.

    "Relax." She replies as she heads-off into her bathroom. "I've got some sandwiches in my locker."

    "What the f*ck!?" Dehx drops her bag in the shock, then shakes his head to prevent himself even trying to picture what horrifying state her locker would now be in after having sandwiches left in them for the entire school holiday. "Unforgiveable..." He says, almost feeling sick from the very thoughts he's trying to shake, and then realizing that the lockers change hands every year depending on which class you're in... so someone else would now have to deal with that revolting locker.

    "Ready!!" Smiles Chloe as she poses on her exit from the bathroom, wearing a black vest with a "soul" image on the front, instead of the original white vest she'd chosen before - much to Dehx's relief.

    "Come on." He says, heading to and out the door, with his sister following behind. "Only you could make us late on our first back..."

    "Can we stop at the sweetie shop on the way?" She asks, as if she'd just ignored her brother's words.

    "No." He answers.

    "But I need some sugar!" She begs, pulling at his arm. "Pleeeaaase, I'm really tired! I need an energy boost of sugary goodness!!"

    "Then you should've got your lazy ass outta bed earlier and made some breakfast." He says. "It's the most important meal of the day, you know."

    "What about a lift?" She asks, referring to a piggy-back.

    "No." He answers.

    "Pleeeaaase?" She asks again.

    "No!" He growls.

    However... a little later, they arrive at the school gates... with Chloe happily lazing, with a lollipop in her mouth, on Dehx's back as he'd had given in to her at some point on the way.

    "Alright, get off now." He says, allowing her to slide off his back, so he could at least walk into school without anybody having seen his sister acting like a human back-pack.

    After checking which class they would be in this year, they find themselves outside the Dagger Room. And as Chloe finishes her lollypop, Dehx pushes open the door with a heavy sigh... he knew being late wasn't the best way to make a good impression on whatever new teacher they had. He just hoped that, whoever they were, they'd let it slide, at least just for today. He didn't much fancy the idiot of being made an example of on his first day back.

    "Nice of your to join us, Tabits." The teacher, Julian Cohl, comments as they walk in, and they stop in their tracks.

    Luckily, it's a teacher they already know quite well, but that doesn't stop Dehx from worrying when he notices another student is already clearly introuble as he's being forced to stand infront of the entire class for some reason. And Chloe doesn't help matters as she playfully pokes her tongue out at the teacher. Dehx brings his palm up to his face, sighing heavily again.

    Chloe doesn't even notice her poor brother, as her focus shifts when she also notices the other student standing at the front of the class. She looks up at him, who's already been turned to face the siblings since they first made their late arrival, somewhat relieved that someone else was now the focus of attention rather than himself.

    She stares up at him, almost as if she's drawn to his gaze. She doesn't even seem to hear the teacher's voice anymore, and it isn't until Dehx physically pulls at her arm to finally find themselves a seat, after seemingly having been let-off for their lateness, that she snaps-out of whatever it is she's in. Well, almost, as she looks over her shoulder at him as she's being pulled along.

    Dehx lead Chloe to their seats. They had been sat next to each other, so it wasn't hard to find their place. Dehx guided Chloe to her seat and sat her down. As he sat down, he could see her slump to the desk. He leant back in his chair as he paid attention to their teacher.
    "My apologies for the disturbance. Where were we?" Julian Cohl said as he went to his own desk. "Ah yes; now it's time to reassign you your lockers. Now; usually, I would give you your keys according to the list. I have been given permission to distribute the keys in my own fashion. Before class, I went around and taped envevlopes to the bottoms of your chairs. These envelopes contain your keys. If you would like to retrieve your keys, I will then allow you to go on a break. Go find your lockers and maybe just have a bit of fun." Julian said as he looked round the class. No one had moved yet, obviously needing a bit of encouragement. "What are you waiting for? Go, go, go." All at once, everyone reached under their chairs and pulled out their envelopes. Some had trouble removing them, and so they had to stand up and turn their chairs upside down. Dehx looked at his envelope and opened it. He pulled out a key with a tag attached to it. On the tag was a number. He looked at it in horror.
    "You have got to be kidding me. There is no way I am that unlucky." Dehx said as he brought his hand to his head and leant further back in his chair.
    "What's wrong, Dehx?" Chloe asked.
    "You're going to help me clean the locker." Dehx said as he showed her the tag.
    "Best. Morning. Ever." She said as she read her old locker number quietly to herself.

    Chloe can't help but giggle her head-off at her brother's misfortune as she runs from her desk and out into the hallway to locate her own locker.

    Checking out the number, she finds her new locker to be on the opposite side of the hallway to her old one. She sticks the key in, eventhough she has nothing with her to place inside, opens it up, and has a quick peek.

    "OH GOD!!!" Comes an absolutely horrifed yell from the opposite side of the hall.

    And though there's a part of her that's curious to see what kind of unthinking mess her old locker is in, there's a much bigger part of her screaming at her from the inside to run!!

    Which is what she does, after slamming (and locking) her own, new, locker shut. But, her being her, she fails to look where's she going, and she doesn't get far before she's stopped as she bumps into someone.

    As the bump causes her to sway and fall backwards, she closes her eyes, expecting to hit the floor at any moment. But her arm is quickly caught by the hand of the other person, who then pulls her forward a little, to help her get her balance again.

    She opens her eyes again, and looks up... it's the guy from before...

    Quietly going about his business, not even eager or nervous about his locker when a fast flying student barreled into him. 'What in the nine hells...' Was his first reaction and the second came swiftly after, grabbing the outstretched hand of said student and helping them to regain balance. Chandler Sphynx realizes now that it is a student from his class, the late arrival. His breath caught for a second as his soul wavelength jumped and changed.

    "I'm Chandler Sphynx, you shouldn't be running around when it is so crowded, Ms. Tabit." He says before moving around her and down the hall to find his locker. 'She must be a weapon... which means her brother is a meister... lucky guy...'

    Dehx looked at his key in disbelief as his sister giggled to herself as she left the room. He stood up to call her back, but he knew it would be futile. Listlessly, he followed her out into the corridor.

    It didn't take him long to find his locker, having known where it was from the start. He looked down the corridor and could see Chloe finding hers. He wondered how long it would take before her new locker would be a state. He looked at his locker and then at his key. He turned over in his hand. He didn't want to think about the state of his new locker; it could be alive. Gingerly, he slid the key into the hole, but hesitated. Who knew what monstrosity he would be unleashing on Shibusen; it could been that even Shinigami would have trouble dispatching it.

    He knew he would have to get it over with, sooner or later, so it had to be now. He transformed his hand into his dagger blade, ready to take on whatever was inside. He drew it back and closed his eyes. Quickly he turned the key and opened the door; at the same time, he thrust his hand into the locker. There was nothing; except for a strange feeling. He opened his eyes and drew his dagger out. On the end was Chloe's mouldy old sandwich from the previous semester.
    "OH GOD!!!" He yelled in horror as he transformed his dagger back into his hand, breaking free of it's decaying bonds that seemed to vaguely resemble a sandwich.

    Chloe just stands there, watching him walk away from her. And, for the second time today, finds herself unusually, and unexplainably, silent.

    "Idiot." Says a voice, but she hardly even notices it. "You coulda hurt someone running around like that."

    It's Dehx, standing right beside her. She hadn't even noticed his arrival.

    "Hey?" He asks, putting a hand to her forehead, checking to see if she has a fever or something. "Are you okay?"

    "Mm?" She replies, finally acknowlodging his presence, but still seeming kind of "odd".

    "I said; are you okay?" He repeats, growing a little more concerned.

    He's always known her to be very much the daydreamer, but something just doesn't seem right.

    Eventually, Chloe nods slowly, just the once.

    "Good!" He says, grabbing her arm and pulling her over to see the mess she made of her old locker. "Come with me!"

    "Ah! Nooo!" She squeals, struggling against him, but it's no use.

    Sitting back at his allocated desk in Dagger room, Chandler quietly plans out the layout for his locker for the year and where he should store the books and learning materials he will get. "So, your Chandler Sphynx, The Weapon Master, as Lord Shinigami puts it." Julian Cohl states as he sits on the desk next to Chandler."Yes sir. I am Chandler Sphynx, a Tool Meister." Chandler replies, not bothering to look up. Cohl took the hint and left, preparing for when the rest of the class got back.

    'I don't dislike the feeling.... it's just creepy, like something worming about in the pit of my stomach...' He thought, regarding the changes his wavelength goes through.

    Having somehow managed to escape the "evil clutches" of her brother, Chloe dashes in through the class room door and dives under Julian's desk, trying to hide.

    "Chloe, what are you doing?" Julian asks, looking under his desk, somewhat confused, but somehow amused.

    "Shh! He's out to get me!" She replies.

    "Why? What've you done this time?" He asks, kneeling down to her level and trying not to laugh.

    "Nothing!" She answers, but then re-thinks that answer. "Well, I didn't mean to..."

    "Heh heh. Well, whatever it is, you can't hide under my desk forever." Julian smiles.

    "I can try." She pouts.

    "Come on." He continues to smile as he reaches out his hand to her.

    But just as she's about to take it, Dehx enters the room.

    "Where is she?" He asks, frustration in his tone. "You realize you've got a hallway full of student just about ready to pass-out!?"

    Julian grows a confused look on his, so Dehx tries to explain, but he's cut-short by Chloe as she calls out from under the desk.

    "It was an accident." She squeaks.

    "Chloe Angel Tabit - get your ass over here now!" Dehx demands.

    Twice in one day, no, in one morning, she's had her full name bellowed at her in that tone... not a good sign.

    Dehx stood with his arms folded as Chloe extricated herself from beneath Julian's desk. She stood up slowly with her head bowed lowed; staring at the floor.
    "I warned you last semster about your locker." Dehx said, his voice still a little stern.
    "This is about her locker?" Julian said as he leant back in his chair.
    "Yes sir; it's a health hazard. I'm very suprised that it's not alive" Dehx explained.
    "I see. Well, the lockers were meant to be cleaned before the keys were handed in. Who got her old locker?" Julian asked.
    "Who do you think?" Dehx said as he held up the locker key.
    "Oh dear, that's unfortunate. Leave it with me and I'll get it sorted out." Julian said as he offered to take the key.
    "I have a better idea," Dehx said as he went into his pocket. He pulled out her phone which she had chucked out of the window this morning, "You don't get this back until my locker is cleaned." Dehx said, holding the phone tightly in his hand, ready to lift it out of her reach.

    Just as Dehx had already predicted, Chloe comes at him and tries to snatch her phone back, but he lifts it up, out of her reach... leaving her stuggling to stretch her arms up far enough to reach, also attempting the odd jump-and-grab, but being unsuccessful everytime.

    Julian chuckles to himself, finding the scene somewhat entertaining. But he doesn't really know what to suggest for the best. Seeing as the lockers were all meant to be cleaned before school started again, it's not entirely her fault, but, then again, it would probably do Chloe some good to take some responcibilty. At the very least, it might make her think twice before leaving food in her locker for an entire holiday next time.

    "Chloe..." He says calmly, catching her attention. "Don't you think it would a nice thing to do for your brother?" He says as he makes his way over to her with a smile.

    Chloe pouts a little and stays silent, her eyes avoiding his as much as possible. Only the odd glance connecting their eyes. Julian had always been her favourite teacher, and they'd come to be friends too. She didn't, and doesn't, want to feel like a disappoint to him...

    "So how about it? I can help you after school if you like?" He offers, finally catching her focus as she looks back at him.

    "Mm... okay..." She says at last.

    "I think you're missing the point here." Dehx comments to Julian.

    "Someone needs to be here to keep her out of anymore trouble." He replies.

    "I suppose I can't argue with that." Dehx sighs.

    Dehx didn't feel entirely happy with the situation, he wanted Chloe to sort the locker out as soon as possible. Still; this was better than nothing, and he would make do with it.
    "What am I meant to do in the mean time, seeing as I may need it before then." Dehx asked Julian.
    "Well, I'm not really meant to, but seeing as it's you I suppose I can store your stuff in with mine." Julian replied as he pointed to the bottom draw to his right. Dehx knew it wasn't because it was him, but Julian had a way of making it feel like he was giving people special treatment, even when he treated everyone equally. This might be why he was quite a popular teacher.
    "Thanks." Dehx replied
    "Now then, why don't you two run along? I'm sure you have some things you want to do before you're needed elsewhere." Julian said as he nudged them playfully towards the door.

    As they leave the class room once again, Dehx gets the feeling he's being watched, and looks around before stepping out. But the only student back in class, is the new guy, and he's not even looking at him.

    Dehx gives a glance down at Chloe, and then back at the other student, before closing the class room.

    "So, what d'ya wanna do!?" Chloe chirps, hoping to goof around as long as possible before class resumes and they have to go through the boredom of getting new books (which she'll probably never even open), and new time tables (which she'll probably never even read), and whatever other boring formal stuff there is to do or know (which she'll probably never even listen to)...

    "Y'know, just once, I'd like to have a normal day, like everybody else." Dehx groans as they leave the class room again.

    "Pfft. Normal is boring." Chloe shrugs.

    "Oh yeah? And how would you know that!?" Dehx teases, ruffling his sister's hair, which she'd left loose for today.

    Chloe sticks her tongue out at him, playfully.

    "Now then, can I trust you not to get into any trouble while I make a pit-stop?" He asks, referring to a trip the "men's room".

    "I never get in trouble!" She grins. "I a good girl!"

    "Just stay there." Dehx sighs heavily, brining his palm to his face again before walking off and leaving her in the hall on her own. "And I mean right there!" He calls as he continues to walk away.

    Chloe pouts and folds her arms, leaning against the now closed class room door, which probably wasn't the best of ideas. After a very short while she gets bored and her eyes start to wonder up and down the hall looking out for anyone she knows or anything to do that doesn't involve being glued to one spot.

    Dehx walked into the men's room intent on doing what he came here for. He approached the stalls, but they were all full, so he waited for one to become free. He walked over the sinks and started to wash his hand; that sandwich was disgusting. After he soaped up his hands and rinsed them off, he lent over further to splash water over his face. He heard on of the toilets flush, so he quickly finished. When he lifted his head up, with his dripping face, he saw someone that had been his rival since he joined Shibusen.
    "Zach!" Dehx spat as he dried his face.
    "Morning Dhex. Have a good Summer?" Zach said dryly.
    "What do you care?." Dehx replied as he turned to face him.
    "That wasn't nice. What say we put all this hostility behind us, eh?" Zach said as he offered his hand. Dehx thought about it for a moment. He took Zach's offered hand and shook it.
    "The stall's all yours." Zach said as he broke the grasp and stepped aside. Dehx nodded his thanks and walked towards the stall. He wasn't even half way there when Zach grabbed his long hair and pulled him down to the ground on his back. Dehx landed heavily, getting the wind knocked out of him. He felt a fist connect with his face. Instinctively, he threw his arms up to protect his head, but there was no further hits. He lowered his arms, noticing little blood stains. He stood as Zach laughed to himself.
    "Oops, I slipped." Zach said before he laughed a little again. Dehx looked at him and shook his head. He didn't react, this is what Zach wanted, he always did. He turned and entered the stall. Before he'd even started, he heard a thud as if someone had hit the wall. He thought nothing of it, perhaps Zach was just venting frustration brought on by not getting what he wanted. He heard the door to the corridor open.
    "What happened to your head, Zach?" He heard someone say.
    "Was just minding my own business when Dehx slammed my head against the wall; so I punched him in the face." Zach reply was muffled as the door closed behind them.

    Just as she thinks about walking-off to go outside, Chloe recognises a familar face...

    "Zach!" She calls, noticing his head. "Are you alright?"

    She'd always been oblivious to Zach's true nature. Though she's known him quite some time, she's never really been able to get him know him properly, as Dehx has always kept the pair of them as far away from eachother as possible. Chloe always figured they were just a couple of a guys who didn't get on - maybe it was just a guy thing or something?

    "It's nothing." He says, knowing full-well she'll only ask again.

    "Well, that looks like a pretty painful 'nothing'." She says, tip-toeing to get a better look. "What happened?"

    "Clo..." He sighs. "I didn't really want to tell you... promise you won't get upset?"

    "Just tell me." She demands, putting her hands on her hips.

    "Your brother." He says, finally, catching a look of disbelief on her face. "I just bumped into him on my way out and he smashed my head against the wall!"

    "What!?" Chloe asks, complete shocked. "That's not like him at all..." She then stops to think. "Brother's been so stressed out this morning..."

    Dehx and Zach had been known to not get along, and quite often had verbal arguements, but never a physical fight... not that she'd ever known of anyways.

    "I'm sorry... I didn't want to tell you, but I just can't lie to you." He says. "Speaking of which... I have a confession to make... I... I had to hit him back. It was the only way to get him to stop... look, I'm going to the nurse. If you need to talk, I'll be around, okay?" He says before continuing on his way, leaving Chloe to think about things.

    And she can't help but feel guilty. She grows a sad look on her face as she thinks about how it must be her fault that her brother has been stressed out to such an extreme point. She doesn't want to stress him anymore...

    She turns and opens the door to class again, then plodding in slowly and finding her seat without even a word to Julian, or even really noticing the guy from before who's still in the room. She just sits, silently, looking down and feeling awful... on the verge of crying...

    When Dehx had entered the mensroom, the stalls were all full. After a few people coming and going, he left the stall and went over the sinks. He looked at himself in the mirror. Again, he leant over the sinks and began splashing his face with water, cleaning the wounds. He took some towels and dried his bleeding face, now able to see the wounds. They were clearly incisions. Zach, it was known, is a weapon without a meister, whose wavelength was extremely unstable. So far, no one had been able to match it, rendering him useless to anyone else. In weapon form, he was a whipe with serations down it's length. He is often seen with these serations down his knuckles. Evidentaly, he had these serations when he punched Dehx. Four lines down his face. Pretty brutal for a single punch, but it was nothing Dehx couldn't deal with. He didn't feel the need to bug the nurse for every little cut and bruise. One cut, in particular, looked bad, so maybe he would have to see the nurse for that, but he would see how it went.

    Dehx finished cleaning up and left the men's room. He looked around for Chloe, but she was gone. He breathed a heavy sigh; one that was a mix of annoyance and relieve. Knowing Chloe, she was probably off somewhere getting into trouble. He was relieved, though, that she wasn't here to see what had happened.

    Chandler kept his eyes down and his presence as inconspicuous as possible. Why did his soul have to change for this girl? Someone so full of like an emotionally carefree? Couldn't people control themselves? He took out a bit of paper and scrawled a note on it. Curse his shifting soul!

    He finished writing and folded it up for minimum air resistance and flung it sideways to the girl. Hopefully, she wouldn't take it the wrong way in the emotional state she was in... but then again, you never know.

    There is no need to cry, Ms Tabit. It's only the first day.

    Chloe feels something lightly tap against her, catching her attention. A folded-up bit of paper, which she picks-up, and slowly unfolds, a little confused.

    The note reads:
    "There is no need to cry, Ms Tabit. It's only the first day."

    Chloe sniffs and quietly giggles a little to herself.

    "Idiot." She thinks, finding it funny, for some reason.

    If only that's all it was... first day blues. She remembers those well. She always hated being new at or to anything... for some reason she always felt like other were judging her when it came to those kinds of occations. She always felt the odd-one-out, even if her brother was there with her. The whole "new girl" thing was always so awkward for some reason...

    Anyway...

    She rubs her eyes in an attempt to get rid of any tears, and she turns in the direction the note came from, facing it's sender, and replying with a smile.

    Dehx walked down the corridor, not really aiming anywhere. The flow of blood from his face had slowed to a trickle. He had debated on going to the nurse, but he decided that it wasn't all that bad. If it got worse, he was sure that he would be excused. He decided that he would go back to class. There wasn't much else he wanted to do, anyway; and nothing that couldn't wait. And so, he made his way back to class. He had to face everyone, anyway, why not get there first and wait for everyone.

    Dehx pushed the door open and entered the room. He didn't look around the room, nor did he look at Julian who sat at his desk.
    "Dare I ask?" Asked Julian. Dehx just waved him off as he made his way to his seat. He noticed Chloe sitting in her seat, looking rather upset. He had thought about hiding the cuts on his face, but cheering his sister up was more important. He spotted another student nearby, someone he had not really known before; perhaps he was new. He nodded at the student as he turned onto his row, and walked towards his own chair.

    The hot desert seemed to stretch on for miles; it was boundless, blending with the sky ahead like a painting. Aerona reached her hand toward the sky in an attempt to feel the canvas. Her eyes felt heavy and she sighed at herself, disappointed that she had decided to take this route to the next town. She recalled the directions she had received from a young man in the city they had been in before.

    "Death City, is that direction, across the desert. Bog City is to the north, only a few hours walk." The young man said. "Oh, well I've been meaning to visit Death City, how far is it from here?" She had asked. "About three days if you walk light." He had replied.

    "Three days. I should pack lighter next time." She muttered, jumping so as to adjust the weight of the three gallons of water on her back.

    "Would you like me to carry it?" Ceto offered. He was already carrying a good share of their travel goods, which included two blankets, a first aid kit, a small tent and a few other camping supplies.

    "No, I've got it. I just didn't want us to get thirsty and die out here, you know?" Aerona tried her best not to sound tired. Ceto frowned.

    A few hours later, as the sun was beginning to set, Aerona began to see a small object, far up ahead, jutting up from the white sand. She squinted her eyes and focused on the object. It seemed like some sort of superstructure.

    "Ceto, is that what I think it is?" Aerona's pace quickened.

    "It sure looks like it. We should be there in a few hours." Ceto's steps also became lighter as they approached Death City.

    "What a wonderful sight. I can't wait to sleep on a proper bed tonight!" Aerona smiled.

    Though she's somehow feeling a little better, Chloe avoids eye-contact with Dehx as he takes his seat next to her. She takes another look at her note, before folding it away and shoving it into her pocket, then rests her hands on her lap.

    "What's up?" He asks, giving her a concerned look.

    "Nothing." She says quietly, shaking her head.

    Dehx isn't convinced, but there doesn't seem to be much he can do it right now as the rest of the student seem to be returning, and the last thing he wants it to upset Chloe infront of everyone. Despite the attention she seems to bring upon herself, he knows it's not actually something she wants... especially when she's upset about something.

    Chloe, feeling her brother's eyes watching over her, leans her head foward a little, making her hair flop down and hide as much of her face as possible. She doesn't want Dehx to be concerned about her.

    Out of the corner of his eyes, Chandler watched the girl, trying to find a way to lessen the depression she seemed to be falling into. He couldn't think of anything else he could do, his own past being more of a blur and his recent dealings with people being strictly business, he had very little experience in cheering people up.

    The day wore on, glances being stolen when the one thought the other wasn't looking. When they day finished, Chandler rose, packed his meager amount of gear and headed out to his locker.
