    Rebecca lead Alex the long-way around.

    Alex tried to take-in everything Rebecca was showing her, but it wasn't quite working as she had her mind on other things like what this meeting was all about, and if she'd bump into anyone she knew from her previous Garden. Though Rebecca was nice, Alex still felt so out-of-place.

    When she started in at her preivous Garden, she didn't start alone, and never felt as much of an odd-one-out as she had done since she started here.

    She also began to wonder how many, if any, of her Blitzball team had come to this Garden... and how would they set-up regular training sessions now the team was most-likely spilt into different Gardens.

    Joey and Alex made their way through the thinning crowds. They were headed towards the front entrance, which had the directory showing them where everything was. The crowds started thicken up again, as many people now wanted to get a look around. Alex and Joey would have to wait for a bit until they could get to look at the directory.
    "Dang," Said Joey, "I hope we can get to see it before we have to meet in the gym."
    "And soon, it's twenty-five to four now." Alex finished as he looked at the clock.
    "With the amount of people, it could take twenty-five minutes just to get to the directory." Joey said as they moved at a faster pace so as not to waste too much time.

    Rebecca was enjoying giving her new friend a tour of some of the Garden. It was still pretty busy around some areas though, so she kept having to just point things out from a distance and hope she was being clear enough. She also kept having to take detours when it came to areas too crowded to get through, which she was sure must be confusing for Alex, but it was all she could do for now. Rebecca smiled in the thought that there would be plenty of time to show her around properly.

    Joey and Alex forced their way to the Directory. Joey knew that if they didn't, they would end up being late for the meeting in the gym.

    Getting to the Directory was easier than he thought it would be.
    "Ok, East Wing, East Wing." Joey said as he ran his finger over the 3-dimensional map that served as the Directory.
    "There it is." Alex jumped in as he jabbed the map with his finger.
    "Good, let's go." Joey said as he turned on the spot and forced his way out with Alex close behind.

    Getting to the Gym wasn't quite what they had expected; there were a few crowds, but nothing that would slow them down enough to get there late. There was a fair few people in the gym; and a few of them were from Leviathan Garden. Joey and Alex quickly seated themselves close to a group of Levvies as the reason they were called was about to become evident.
    "Firstly, I'd like to thank you all for getting here on time. I know it's been difficult over the last few days. We're still recieving-" Started the Sleipnir Blitzball Coach as he was interrupted by a girl Joey recognised from Leviathan Garden walking through the door they entered through, the other Alex.


    Zeke stood at the back of the gym, leaning against the wall. He watched as people came in and sat down. He saw most of his fellow team mates, as well as a number of Leviathan students; obviously members of the Zanarkand Fins. He waited patiently for the meeting to start and he watched as the coach walked in. Before he could start speaking, a couple of lads from Leviathan Garden walked in and sat down near a small group of Levvies. Within moments, the coach began to address the room, only to be cut short as a girl walked throught the door. He briefly saw a flash of someone outside, but nothing clear enough to figure out who it was.

    Zeke glanced down at his bags, the hand grip of Nephzyk, his 9-ringed broadsword, stuck out from the gap in the zip. He hadn't had chance to move into his new room yet, although he had got his keycard, which he repeatedly turned over in his left hand. He wasn't sure if his roommate was a student of Sleipnir, or a Levvie, but he wasn't too bothered about it, either way.

    Alex tried to sneak in quietly, but the door made such a loud creaking sound as she opened it, that she couldn't avoid being noticed. As she closed the door behind her, causing it to make another long, high-pitched creaking sound, she felt like everyone's eyes were on her. She gave the Sleipnir Blitzball Coach a nervous grin as an a silent appology.

    Alex tried to pretend like he hadn't noticed the other Alex enter the room. But Joey gave him a nudge.

    "Check it out." Joey pointed over to her, but Alex just shrugged. "Oh, come off it. As if you don't care."

    The Sleipnir Blitzball Coach continued on with what he was going to say before he was interrupted by the late arrival. He went on to explain that all Blitzball games had to be put on hold due to "the insodent", and the fact that, due to some poor administration, the Zanakand Fins had been seperated between different Gardens. Until this error was corrected; their team wouldn't be able to train together - which was unfair for a start.

    Needless to say; no one was happy about the Blitzball being cancelled. But there was nothing anyone could do.

    Joey was almost speechless. He couldn't believe that they couldn't train. There were some shouts of protest, but nothing that would accomplish anything. Blitzball was cancelled for a while.
    "That's just great." Joey said sarcastically after a few moments.
    "Tell me about it." Alex replied, equally annoyed at the latest news.
    "Well, I hope they haven't cancelled mum's game." Joey said as he stood to return back to his room.
    "Your mum plays?" Alex asked.
    "Yeah, she does. Teila Strider of the Estha Espers." Joey replied as he started towards the door.


    Zeke put the kaycard into his pocket and picked up his bags. He wasn't happy about Blitzball being cancelled. He understood why the Levvies were unable to train, as they didn't have their whole team; but he didn't think his team should suffer because of it. He left the gym as quickly as he could. He wanted to get his stuff to his room.

    Zeke pushed the door open and carried on. He didn't notice if there was still someone waiting outside. He noticed the distinct lack of crowds, perhaps this meant that there was no more coming today, but it could've been just a break in the rush.

    Alex hadn't yet noticed Joey, or the other Alex. She was the first to leave the gym as she was standing right by the door the whole time. As she left, Rebecca joined her. She'd been able to hear what was being said inside the gym.

    "Did you hear?" Alex asked her as they walked.

    "Yeah. That's a big admin error." Rebbeca replied.

    "This sucks!" Alex stated loudly.


    "Well, this sucks!" Alex continued to complain, and was over-heard by the Sleipnir Blitzball Coach. "What a loada crap!"

    "Well, it's a good job I'm looking into sorting this problem as quickly as possible then, isn't it?" He said, a grumpy tone in his voice. "Those lazy good-for-nothings have no common-sense! Splitting a team-up... what the f*ck were they thinking!?" He then stormed forward, clearly just as aggrivated, if not more-so, than the student themselves.

    Joey followed Alex out of the gym. He was just as angry as Alex was, but not as verbal with his objections. Joey couldn't help noticed the Sleipnir coach watching them as they left.
    "Dammit." Joey said as he kicked at the floor.
    "It's bad, isn't it." Alex said with a rather dejected tone in his voice. Joey walked towards the stairs. He wanted to get back and carry on watching the game, if it was still on. He hoped that professional Blitzball wasn't going to be affected, but deep down he knew it would be.


    Fast forwarding by Admin request... lol

    Zeke approached the door to his dorm. As he reached it, he placed his bags on the ground and fumbled for his keycard. He slid the keycard into the lock, and the door opened slightly as it unlocked. He returned the keycard to his pocket and picked up his bags.

    Zeke kicked the door open and entered what was to be his new home for an undetermined amount of time. He turned round to close the door and as he turned back, he found himself staring down the barrel of a gun. which was held by someone wearing nothing but a towel. He was still dripping wet, evidence that he had just stepped out of the shower.

    "Argh! This is unbelievable!!" Alex complained again.

    She was sat on the sofa, remote control in-hand, watching the end of the Blitzball match.

    "What's wrong?" Rebecca asked, who was unpacking her suitcase in her room.

    "They're cancelling all the Blitzball! Even the professional games until this whole stupid mess is sorted-out!" Alex told her.

    "Wow, really?"

    "This is stupid! Do they even realize what they're doing!? Blitz brings people together!"

    Joey flicked through the channels frantically, hoping to find some news of the match that he had to leave. He hoped that the Espers had won, as he always did.
    "Go'dammit, I can't find anything." Joey said as he threw the remote onto one end of the sofa and slumped down on the other.
    "What about the highlights?" Alex said as he picked up the remote and sat on the arm. He flicked over to the channel the match was on but the hopes of highlights were dashed as the news that all Blitzball is to be cancelled was announced. Joey bolted upright at this disturbing news. He couldn't say anything, he only managed to stare blankly at the screen.
    "That..." Alex started but trailed off as they continued to watch in disbelief. They saw footage of Leviathan Garden, or what was left of it as the anchorman told them there was no clues as to what had happened.
    "...sucks" Joey finally said, finishing Alex's comment several minutes before.
    "I hope they show the rest of the match." Alex said as he looked at his watch and realised that the match was only half over.


    Francis felt a little uncomfortable, but not as uncomfortable as Zeke must've been feeling. Francis Had a gun pointed at Zeke's head while he was wearing nothing but a towel and still dripping wet.
    "Sorry Zeke, can't be too careful with all these levvies around, don't know who you can trust." Francis said as he raised his gun away from Zeke.
    "No problem. Go sort yourself out while I unpack." Zeke said as he walked past Francis to go to his room.
    "Unpack? Does that mean you're my new roommate?" Francis asked, realising the stupidity of the question. Zeke just laughed a little as Francis shook his head and went back to the shower to get dressed

    Alex was feeling pretty frustrated, and disheartened. It was enough hassle just having to move to a new Garden, leaving her home ground behind, and pretty much start-over again. But to have Blitzball cancelled, especially so soon after she had arrived, made her anxious. Blitzball was something she'd enjoyed for many, many years.

    It wasn't like she didn't have other hobbies, but Blitzball was something she felt brought people from all-over together. And it was her profession. She needed to keep-up with her practises if she was going to stay up-to-scratch with this.

    "Gah. This is boarding on obsessive now." Alex shook her head, trying to shake-off her own thoughts. "I'm going for a wonder." She said to Rebecca, before parting company with her.

    Alex just wanted to clear her head, stop herself worrying so much, and, of course, head over to the Chocobo stables.

    Joey relaxed in the sofa, relieved to hear the current match was to be allowed to finish. Alex made his way to grab some refreshments.
    "Incoming." Alex said as he threw a can of drink over his shoulder. Without turning round, Joey snatched the can from the air.
    "Hurry up, Alex, the second half is about to restart." Joey said as he cracked open the can and took a sip.
    "Almost there." Alex said as he finished snatching the snacks and made his way back to the couch. He dropped the stash in the middle of the couch and jumped over the back, landing on the other end.

    "Got enough there?" Joey asked, raising a brow at his friend.

    "Just about." Alex grinned as he cracked open a can of soda.

    "So... Alex is here too. Spooky, huh?" Joey said, causing Alex to almost choke on his drink.

    Alex then acted like he hadn't actually heard what Joey just said. He just stared straight forward at the television, his drink held firmly in his hand as he tried to "act normal".

    He then went to take another sip, when Joey spoke again.

    "I think I'll call check if she's online later on and ask her what room number she is." He said with a slight grin.

    Once again, Alex almost choked.

    "You're doing that on purpose!" Alex growled.

    "S'not my fault you gulp down too much as once." Joey shrugged.

    "Whatever." Alex then pretended to take another drink.

    "Infact, I think I'll email now just incase I miss her onl--" Joey didn't get to finish what he was saying, as Alex threw one of the sofa cusions at him to shut him up. "Hahaha, chill out!"

    Alex let off an annoyed kind of sigh and sat back in his seat.

    "I don't get you. She's on our team, for heaven's sake." Joey stated. "You guys used to be joined-at-the-hip and now you hardly even speak to eachother."

    Alex stayed silent, a look of hurt crept on his face, before he hid it with one of annoyance.

    "It's not good, man. It's not good for the team. And it's definatly not good for you guys." Joey finished, and when Alex still refused to enter the conversation, he went back to watching the game.

    There was an awkward air in the room. Until Alex broke it...

    "So, wanna check out the student bar tonight?" He said, trying to lighten the mood and change the subject hanging over their heads.

    Joey thought for a moment, he hadn't even thought about the student bar until now.
    "Sure, sounds like a plan." He said absent mindedly as his mind tried to focus on the game at hand. It wasn't turning out to be a very good game; the Espers were down in points. Watching this game didn't serve to take the sting out of Blitzball being cancelled. Joey wished he could do something about it.[/b]


    Francis came out of the shower, fully dressed this time.
    "I'm going to hit the training area," Zeke called from his room, "if you want to come with." Francis considered this for a moment.
    "As much as I love the trainig area, I'm going to head to the bar." Francis said as he replaced his gunbelt and his guns in his their holsters

    OOC: Okay, time skip, dudes!!

    Alex and Joey entered through the large double doors of the student bar. Though, it was more like a nightclub...

    Much like their old "student bar", there was a bar area with sofas, chairs, tables, pool tables, and a couple of large televsion screens. The music in the bar area wasn't as loud as the music which could be over-heard from the next door whenever the doors between them swung open when people entered and exited it.

    The next room had loud rock music coming from inside, along with some colourful lighting, and though it wasn't packed-full, it still seemed quite lively inside.

    "Drink?" Alex asked Joey as he wandered quickly over to the bar.

    "The usual." Joey answered as he followed, taking-in his surroundings.

    "Jack and Coke then?"

    "Yeah. Minus Jack."

    "Oh, c'mon, man. Don't make me drink alone."

    "You know I only drink on special occations."

    "This is an occation." Alex said before ordering their drinks.

    "Say what?"

    "We're drowning our sorrows at the sad, sh*tty, news about the Blitz."

    "Fine. But just the one." Joey eventually gave-in, taking his drink when it was bought to the bar.

    "Yeah, sure. One. For now." Alex coughed the last part, half-hoping Joey wouldn't hear it... or at least; not argue it. "Now! To the rock room!!"

    Joey shook his head, laughing a little as Alex pushed the door open and the loud rock music from the other side flooded through, as well as some bubbles from the recently used bubble machine.

    As the two walked in and the bubbles started to clear, a very familiar face became visible on the dancefloor... the other Alex, laughing and dancing away with a bottled drink in one hand.

    Joey could only watch as he noticed Alex decide to down his first drink in one go after he'd obviously noticed the other Alex was here too.

    "This is gonna be a looong night..." Joey thought to himself.

    Joey took a gulp of his drink. He actually felt annoyed that, in a fit of excitement at his mum finally pulling off the Jecht Shot III perfectly and scoring with it, he knocked a drink that had been left on the top of the TV over; spilling it's contents into the TV and causing it to blow up. It is this reason that they had left for the bar in the first place. Any moment now, the match would be over. He'd want to find out how the Esper's did.
    "I'll get the next drink, just go easy, yeah?" Joey said to Alex as he leant close.


    Francis and Zeke walked down towards the student bar, which was actually where they first met. Zeke hadn't been very talkative, but Francis was the first friend he had when he joined.
    "Glad you decided to come." Francis said as they walked closer to the doors.
    "Well, it's where we met. It's been a little while since we were last here." Zeke said. They walked through the doors and headed for the bar.

    Alex was with Rebecca, and a few other girls she'd recently met, on the dancefloor. As they finished their drinks, Alex took their empty bottles and bounced her way over to the bar. But it was busy and she didn't want to wait, so, leaving the empty bottles on the barside, she decided to use the bar in the quieter room.

    As she shuffled her way past the growing crowd of party-goers, she noticed Joey and started waving.

    "Hey, Joey!!"

    Joey could barely hear her over the people and the music, but he noticed her waving her hand in the air as she half-skipped towards him now.

    "Hey!" He said, then looking beside him to check on the other Alex... who was now nowhere to be seen.

    "You're here too?" She smiled, happy to see a familiar face.

    "Er, yeah." He replied, his mind wondering where the other Alex had gone to. "Small world, huh?"

    "Yeah." She then noticed he seemed a little weird. "You okay?"

    "Yeah, yeah." He nodded. "You're not here alone, are you?"

    "No, no. I'm with a couple of friends." She smiled, then leaving through the doors to the quiet bar, waving him to follow so they could talk more.

    It was hard to catch-up with all the noise in the other room. And as they walked back in, Joey noticed the Blitzball match playing on the big screens.

    Joey stared at the big screen. Leviathan had some big screens, but the game was playing on a few screens of the same size, part of the picture in each screen, making the entire picture bigger. A smile crept across his face. Unfortunately, the match was about over, so he had missed a lot of the action. He looked forward to the post game highlights.
    "Did you attend the assembly with the Sleipnir coach?" Alex asked Joey, snapping him out of his Blitzball-driven trance.
    "Yeah, I did-" He started after a moment, "it was mandatory, remember. Alex was there, too." Joey said without thinking.


    Francis looked around and spotted an empty pool table, situated not far from the bar.
    "Hey Zeke, fancy another thrashing at pool?" Francis said confidently as he turned to face him.
    "As I remember it, I beat you the last few times." Zeke said as they started towards the table. The two were quite evenly matched when it came to pool, so every game was always close.
    "Ha-" Francis laughed as he lightly pushed Zeke towards the table, "you set them up and break, I'll get the drinks. Do you want an alcoholic drink this time?"
    "Just the usual." Zeke said as he shook his head. His usual was an inexpensive cocktail of the various fruit juices the bar had in stock. Francis usually drank a couple of pints of sweet cider.

    As he turned to face the bar, Francis noticed Joey enter from the louder room with another of the levvies.
    "Hey look-" He said to Zeke. Zeke just made a curious sound as he looked in the direction Francis was looking, "Joey's brought his Levvy girlfriend with him." He joked.
    "Who?" Zeke asked, not knowing what Francis was going on about because he had never met Joey, apart from when they were all told that Blitzball was to be cancelled, but they never spoke.
    "Don't worry, I was messing about. He looks busy, I won't bother him for now." Francis said with a chuckle as he made his way to the bar.

    Alex opened her mouth to reply, but as the last few words Joey spoke hit her brain, it forced her to pause for a couple of moments.

    "O-ooh..." She finally murmured, trailing off.

    "Hey!" One of the younger barmen came along to serve her. "What'll it be?" He smiled.

    Alex just stared at him, blankly. She couldn't remember what she was meant to be ordering. She had a quick glance around for the empty bottles to use as reminders, but then she rememebered that she'd already left them at the other bar in the louder room.

    "Did you lose something?" The barman asked.

    "Um, s-something like that..." She said, glancing over at Joey, who couldn't believe the mer mention of the other Alex had thrown her so much. "I'll, erm, just go double-check what the girls wanted."

    Joey felt like he had said something wrong. At first he hadn't realised what he had said wrong, then it hit him. Things were very awkward between the two Alex' but Joey didn't know why. He should've been a bit more sensitive about it, or at least kept in mind what he was saying. He finished of his own drink and waited for Alex to return, or at least he hoped she would.
    "I'll have a JD and coke." Joey said as he put the empty glass down on the counter.


    Francis approached the bar. He had seen the girl leave Joey at the bar. From where he stood, Joey looked hurt, but he may have been wrong.
    "I'll get that-" Francis said as the bartender put Joey's drink on the bar, "I'll have a sweet cider and a fruit juice cocktail, as well, my good man." he joked.
    "Cheers Francis. What are you doing in here?" Joey asked as he picked up his drink.
    "Just having a few drinks with my friend Zeke-" Francis pointed to the the table where Zeke was busy setting up, "feel free to join us when your girlfriend returns."
    "Heh, she's not my girlfriend, but I might just do that in a bit." Joey said as the bartender took payment for the drinks.
    "Chin up." Francis said as he patted Joey's shoulder, grabbed the drinks and made his way back to the table.

    Alex had ducked away when he saw the other Alex coming towards himself and Joey a littler earlier. Since then, he'd watched from the other side of the doors as Joey and Alex stood at the bar.

    And when she came back, he hid behind the doors as they opened, ducking through them and strooling his way over to Joey without the other Alex seeing him.

    "Thanks, man." He said as he took the JD and Coke from the bar.

    Joey sighed a heavy sigh.

    "You're back then?" Joey commented.

    "Yep." Alex answered, drinking the drink.

    There was a silence. Alex was waiting for Joey to say something concerning the other Alex. But he didn't. So Alex continued to wait. But he was never very good at playing the waiting game, but just as he was about to ask something, Joey went to sit with Francis, and so, Alex followed.

    Francis took aim on the white. After a good break from Zeke, with which he potted two striped balls followed by another two, Francis was left with all his balls on the table, trailing by four. He struck the cue ball. His aim was true, no surprises there, his solid ball rolled easily towards the middle pocket. He was left lined up almost perfectly for the next shot. He wasted no time in potting his next ball. As luck, or skill, would have it, the cue ball riccocheted into one of Zeke's striped ball which rolled and knocked another solid into another pocket.
    "Nice shot." Said Alex as they both approached the table.
    "Thanks." Francis said as he lined himself up for his shot.
    "I'm going to get a couple of drinks. Won't be long." Joey said as he turned back for the bar.
    "What happened to the drink I got you?" Francis asked as he struck the ball.
    "Numb nuts 'ere drank it." Joey joked as he slapped Alex on the back on his way to the bar.[/b]

    Alex chuckled after recieving his slap on the back, his face soon froze as he took a look over his shoulder as Joey was on his way back to the bar... the other Alex had walkde back into the room.

    Alex, along with Rebecca, were laughing about their other friends, who were still in the other room. They came to the bar where Joey was also standing now.

    Rebecca ordered a couple of drinks and Alex paid for them. Alex then introduced Joey to Rebecca and explained, with a roll of her eyes, that their other friends were now "otherwise occupied - with guys".

    Joey laughed, before pointing over to where the other Alex was sitting. He thought it was best to give her a heads-up.

    Both Alexs locked eyes for a moment, before he broke eye contact, and she took a gulp of her drink. After that, she took a deep breath, and smiled.


    Joey, the other Alex, and Rebecca, came over to the others. Joey introduced the other Alex to Zeke, and the other Alex introduced Rebecca to everyone else.

    Alex gave a nod to each of them, and even managed a "Hey", to the other Alex. Who replied with a "Hey" back.

    "That must get kind of confusing." Rebecca commented.

    "Hm?" Joey wondered what she meant.

    "You two." She pointed at each Alex. "Having the same name."

    "Heh heh, yeah. It doesn't help when we're on the same Blitz team." Alex laughed.

    "Yeah, we've had the whole; someone calls out "Alex" and we both turn around, thing." The other Alex laughed also.

    "Really?" Rebecca giggled a little.

    "Yeah, we've had it all our lives." Alex started-off laughing, but as he finished that sentence he went a bit quiet, rememering that things these days weren't really like that anymore.

    The other Alex was quiet for a moment also.

    "Yeah." She said, smiling again. "It's kinda funny though."

    Francis couldn't help but watch the awkward situation. It wasn't his turn, so it was easy to forget. Francis drank some of his cider as he tried to not really focus on anyone. He felt a tap on his shoulder. He turned to face to source. It was Zeke, it was Francis' turn.
    "Clear up," Zeke said. He knew something needed to change the situation and a new game of pool would go a long way to achieving that, "Who's got next?" He said in an attempt to get someone talking.

    Raime had only recently reached the Garden's grounds. For him that was a big, confusing place.
    As he walked in, all the colors and lights pierced right through his brain. He tried to walk, stunned, bumping into a few students, until he bumped into Mai, a Strict Conduct Observer.

    "What are you doing here? Haven't you got a Class to attend?" said the SCO

    "I don't know" said Raime in a low tone.

    "And you expect to be a SeeD? If you joined Sleipnir Garden to miss classes, you better leave, because there are people waiting to join who probably have nice skills and can't be a part of SeeD because people like you and..." Mai kept talking until Raime interrupted him:

    "Do you even know me to talk about me like that?" - Raime continued in the same tone - "I just arrived here, I was not expecting anyone to welcome me, so I was looking for someone kind enough to show me around, but I guess I shouldn't have come in the first place"

    "Oh, you must be the new student that entered recently, I'm sorry I didn't mean to get mad at you at all, it's just, oh well, I can show you around if you like as I've lived here for..." - Mai was interupted again:

    "You talk too much" - said Raime - "Go to the Training Area where no one can hear you, or something" - Raime whispered

    "Did you say something, you? - Mai asked

    "I said I was going to the cafeteria" - Raime said

    And so he walked, down the hall. Probably the wrong hall, but he'll reach it, somehow.
