Re: School Grounds
OOC: Continuation of conversation with Simon Willow.

Cassandra nods in understanding when the boy refuses her offer of breakfast. "Okay then." Her voice is calm and neutral. She watches him stand up and head for the front of the school, and follows.

"It might interest you to know the school is locked up." Her voice remains neutral, but it sounds off, like she's glad the school is locked up. "You see, I run it. I'd leave it unlocked like I used to, but our Rock Earth teacher kept complaining of his mineral specimens getting stolen." She steps up to the boy again, nervous for his reaction to what she will say next. "I live in the forest behind the school, and I'm going to my house to grab the keys and a bite to eat. Feel free to wait here, but my offer still stands for you to come to my house so you don't have to be alone... You're choice though." She had a feeling the boy didn't know who she was, and she wondered what his reaction would be if he did. Then she realized that she basically told him who she was, and her eyes turn slightly nervous as she tries to keep her expression calm and pleasant.

Shiro was waiting, leaning against a tree not far from the front of the school. He stood on his own, and looked "out of it," but that didn't mean he couldn't hear the conversation happening a short distance away. His bag lay on the ground by his feet, but there seemed to be a spot that he left intentionally open...

Re: School Grounds
While Simon's body was weak, he mind was strong.  This lady who was an unusual stranger just moments ago, now turns out to be the owner and proprietor of the Elemental School.  She was even offering to take him in and feed him.  That was weird in and of itself.  Simon had trust issues.

"Strange, how someone would be willing and able to steal from a teacher from this school of all places," he said, hoping to get off the subject of him looking pitiful.  He wouldn't have guessed that a place full of teachers who could control the very forces of nature would have to rely on locking things up.  "To steal from someone that could possibly drop a mountain one you...takes a real pair of balls.  Big, stupid, balls."  His eyes went wide for a moment as he realized he just said balls...twice...in front of the principle.

"I...I'm just going to walk around the school grounds then.  Familiarize my self with it if you don't mind.  I won't touch anything."

Re: School Grounds
She realized that he still didn't know who she was, and relaxed a little. She tried to keep her voice neutral but pleasant. "Well, some Outer Village students are lead astray when young, others steal to live. Some of those habits and instincts carry on when they are relocated here. I usually take them in, as the leader of the Village. Each one becomes an example of why I want to abolish the Banishment Law, but the Elder Council replies with the threat of Banishing me, and then how would I help those in need? Anyway, I don't believe we need to lock the school, but it helps the teacher chill out, so it is useful. Actually, that teacher is one of the only Center Village residents that locks his doors, at least, of those that have lived here their whole lives." She realizes she went off the rails for much of her explanation, and probably offended the boy in front of her with talk of delinquent teens in need of help. She tries not to let her nervousness show on her face. When she realizes the boys eyes are wide from his choice of words, she chuckles. "It's alright, though I can tell you are not from here, no one around here says things like that. But I agree, someone very ignorant and dumbly brave would be the kind to commit this small crime." She speaks casually. When the boy continued saying he would simply wait here, she nodded, some sadness showing in her eyes. "Alright then. I'll be back." With that, she walks around the school and to her home.
