Re: Elemental History
"I'll just have your teacher come," she said politely, seeing another boy out of the corner of her eye. Forming a fist at her side and slowly opening her fingers as she brings her hand in front of her face, her eyes go dark antil her irises are black like her pupils. Her flat palm is now in front of her face, with a pure Dark orb resting on it. She whispers into it and then it flows out of its orb shape and into smoke that leaves through the door, a whisper being played repeatedly over it as it travels. She then turns to the boy who must have taken the fall she heard so acutely in the hallway.

"Hello, Devin. Are you okay? Your nose is a bit red, well... Looks like it's about to bruise. Would you like any help? And don't fret, you won't be kicked out for being late today. Come to my house for dinner tonight, I can give you the lesson over a meal of your choice if you would like." She smiled kindly, in a somewhat motherly way. The color returns to her eyes, rich sapphire blue and bright dancing flames, by the time she is done speaking.

Re: Elemental History
This is what Devin probably looked like after having witnessed the Complete seemingly commune with an orb of pure darkness, then going on to sound like the world's nicest person: http://pa1.narvii.com/5763/25d...4228211eec005_hq.gif

"... No, my nose'll be fine. I fall a lot so, I'm kinda used to it..." was Devin's timid reply to the Complete's offer of medical help. Despite having turned down her help there, he was both afraid, and too curious to deny her offer to dinner though. Plus, it would give him a few extra hours out of his grandparents' cabin. "Dinner and the lesson... H-hai... I'd like that... Arigatō..." Devin also let out a sigh of relief from having heard he wouldn't be getting kicked out. After Devin accepted the Complete's offer, his eyes drifted back to Simon.

After a few seconds of rather awkward silence, Devin realized that he was still late to school, and immediately turned looked back to the Complete. "Oh! Class! That's right! Umm... I don't remember where the Sound primary is..." Devin's eyes travelled downward, as his right foot swept the floor and his hands found there way into his pockets. He was embarassed for having forgotten where the classroom was, despite having just stared at a map of the school a minute ago.

Re: Elemental History
Kuron jogs in, having slowed after seeing Roy run so excitedly towards the history class. He figured the Complete would have work for the boy to do, therefor he allowed some time for the boy to complete that work. Locating the boy in the room, he walked up and said "Are we set?" He grinned as though he was a teenager, equal to Roy in some way.

Re: Elemental History
Simon tried his best to ignore the tall kid who seemed to be staring at him.  Back in the outer islands kid's stared and, when they eventually got bored with that, they usually turned to name-calling or even physically abusing him.  He was determined that that wouldn't happen here.  If it did he would release the darkness.  Every day his control over the darkness got stronger.  He hoped he would learn yet even more by attending classes.  One day he'd be strong enough that no one would be able to touch him again.

Simon turned away from the boy and stepped just outside the door to the Elemental History class.  Sure the walls were glass.  Sure the boy was likely still staring.  Simon would wait.  Wait for the Darkness teacher to arrive.  How dare this place make him look like a fool by not telling him where the Darkness class was.  Inside, anger and resentment started to build.  Simon stared straight ahead at nothing in particular.  His fists were balled up at his sides.
Lights started to flicker and the sharp crisp edges of nearby shadows began to undulate and move.

Eventually, Simon closed his eyes and started to breathe slow deep breathes.  The shadows became still once more.

Re: Elemental History
The Complete smiled at the boy with headphones. "You're welcome." She said in a warm tone. When the boy said he didn't know where his class was, she opened her mouth to speak again but went rigid at the sense of the Darkness Primary boy shifting to anger. Her head whips to face him, and she speed walks to him, light starting to come from her palms, but stops just a short distance from him when he calms. She stares a moment, forgetting to breathe. That was close... She couldn't help but feel it was her fault. "I'm sorry." She said. "Are you alright?" Her voice was gentle, her face concerned.

Re: Elemental History
Simon could feel the light emanating from the palms of the Complete's hand.  He didn't have to turn to know it was there.  The light irked him like rough wool against sensitive skin.  As it came closer he fought the urge to spin and smack her hand's away.  Before he turned to face her his cold eyes softened and he relaxed his hands.  He looked at her with a blank face and even managed to give her a small fake smile.  "Fine."  He figured that would do it.  She had no reason to stick around with so many other students around with questions of their own to ask.

After a few seconds he finally muttered something else ever so softly, "Perhaps..." he started to say, before increasing the volume of his own voice to something more normal.  "Perhaps, you should consider an orientation and give people a tour of the grounds on the first day," he said with a helpful smile.

The light died from her hands. She offers a wavering smile. "Oh, that's a good idea." Her voice is gentle. "I'm sorry if I... startled, or embarrassed you..."

Re: Elemental History
Every word, Devin heard it all. His ears sucking in the short conversation between Simon and the Complete. But it wasn't her fault, it was Devin's fault; consequently to Devin's realizing this, his mood changed quite obviously. His shoulders hung, as did his head slightly, he made Simon upset.

Every word, Devin heard it all. He heard the pain behind the smile. He heard the despair within the "fine." And he heard above all else, the tone differnece in Simon's voice that clouded self loathing. And he was sure the Complete had heard it too. At a slow pace, Devin began leaving the classroom. As he passed the Complete, he spoke. "I'll just check the board again to find the class. Thank you..." Devin said quietly, but loud enough for the Complete to hear him. And as Devin passed Simon at a quicker pace than he did the Complete, his bangs moved slightly, and Simon would have seen a small twinkle under Devin's eyes, almost like water shining.

Re: Elemental History
"A little to the side... Square the corner... Edges need to be smoothed out..." Roy mumbled to himself, holding a hand up to silence the Water Primary when he confronted Roy as he worked. The pillows had all been arranged with military precision back in their proper places, all faced in uniform direction as they had never been touched. He had even taken the time to arrange the pillows by color and wear and tear in descending order from back of the room to the front. So focused had he been, he failed to notice the other students leaving, or the lights flickering, or anything but his task for that matter, merely weaving in between other students as adjusting the pillows as needed.

No corners were to be cut when surfing was on the line, and he was still feeling guilty about upsetting The Complete earlier with his actions. When he finally stood back, observing his work and nodding to himself, satisfied. Roy turned to face The Complete, the look of severity still glinting in his eye. The pillows have been rearranged as requested as per our deal ma'am." He nodded again to The Complete, almost signify that he was accepting on her behalf and dismissing himself so that she wouldn't have to waste the effort.

At once, his shoulders relaxed, his poster slackened and the wide faced grin replastered itself upon his face as he approached Kuron. Roy took note of the state of the classroom, many of the students who were there when he started had vacated and one he didnt recognize had appeared, but Roy shrugged. C'est la vie. Life came in waves, you could either ride them in or get dragged unde.r Which reminded him, "Surfing?!" He beamed, face alight with excitement as he stared puppy dog eyes at his new instructor.

Re: Elemental History
Deservet enters the room and the lights go out. "You called, Cassandra?" He looks straight at Simon. "Hello, young man." Glancing behind him to see if the girl still followed, he steps into the room to make room for her to enter. "Busy day, I'd guess." He looked around and saw Raijin. "Well well." He continued to survey the room, and closes his eyes, sensing the Dark Elementalist's energies. His face darkens at sensing Simon's. Already communicating with Darkness and befriending it... He growls softly.

Re: Elemental History
Kuron almost protests at being silenced, but smiles seeing that Roy is so focused. Kuron laughs at Roy's excitement. "Yes Roy, we can head down there now." He smiles brightly, until Deservet enters the space and the lights go out, even the sunlight coming through the glass dims. "Oh man..." He turns to see Deservet and sighs. "This guy." He turns back to Roy. "Let's leave now. You might not want to be around the Darkness Primary instructor." He then starts to quickly walk outside of the room and towards the beach.

Re: Elemental History
Simon looked over the Darkness teacher.  His eyes squinted with curiosity.  Would this man truly be able to teach him how to control more the Darkness's power?  Or did this man live in fear of it like most others?  Simon gave a short bow of his head.  "Simon Willow," he introduced himself in a soft voice.  He was frail of body and as such his soft voice came as little shock to anyone.

Simon flashed a quick side glance and scowl to Kuron.

Re: Elemental History
Deservet growls at Kuron as he passes, eyes opening and glinting as dark, sharp daggers. His head moves little at the Complete's nervous look. When Simon speaks, Deservet looks down at him. "I am Deservet Cono. Come with me." He then turns towards the door, waits for Kuron to walk a fair distance, and glances at the boy Kuron was talking to, waiting for him to leave.

Re: Elemental History
Roy looked between Kuron and the new teacher."Uhh...." History existed there, and very little of it was looked back on fondly. A quick pleading glance was thrown to The Complete, but as Kuron moved off out the door, Roy let out a small sigh of relief as the tension eased and followed Kuron out, just happy to be able to hit the beach.

Re: Elemental History
Aileen followed the Darkness Instructor back into the Elemental History room, its lights dimming as they entered it. "Is it just for show, or are you passively shunning Light away from you?", the girl found herself asking the teacher as she entered the room, where she found a few others inside, among which was also Roy. Waving at him with a smile, her expression turned into surprise as she heard the man next to him speak about Deservet, his words speaking not a single good thing about the Instructor.

As she met eyes with Simon, a soft smile etched her lips, before the woman bowed her head in greeting. "Hello, Simon. I'm Aileen and I'll be your fellow Darkness trainee.", she spoke with a gentle tone so as not to startle him, for she had realized that Simon wasn't the very social type of person.

Re: Elemental History
Simon turned to Aileen and gave her a small smile in return.  "Hi.  I saw your flower earlier.  I like it."

"We should probably go.  I have a lot to learn," he said to all involved.  He was eager to start learning more about the Darkness and the gifts it provides.

Geb had stood off to the side. Watching other appear and disperse. He finally turned to the Complete. "If its alright with you. I think I may head to the beach. It has beeb a long time si ce I have communed with the sand." he began to walk off in the direction of the beach.

OOC if noone talks to him or stops him he actually rolls himself into a large boulder and rolls down the pathway."

Re: Elemental History
Floyd had finally come out of the classroom and saw who he could only surmise was his instructor. Two other students seemed to be following him and the were on the ither side of the clearing. He sighed and began to make his way over there. As he did in a shadowy corner he saw his only friend "sitting" there. The demonic looking serpent nodded at Floyd and he smiled in return. He mouthed the word "later" and watched as the head and part of the body slithered back into the dark shadow and dissappeared.

He walked up to the others. "My name is Floyd Zombra. I believe I am to be under your teaching sir." he spoke to Deservet with respect. He glanced at the other two not knowing what to think of them.

Re: Elemental History
Deservet watched Kuron leave with a dark glare, though one might see a tired, disturbed look behind it. Sighing just loud enough to hear, he looks at Aileen. "I just prefer the shadows. It doesn't hurt to dim the Light now and again for a moment or two." He watches the students interact, a thoughtful expression on his face, as though sizing up the way they would work as a team. Hm. More Darkness students this year than any other Element. The Elders are not going to like this. Then he hears yet another student address him. "Hello, Floyd Zombra. I believe your peer Simon is correct. We should return to the classroom." With this he leaves the room, the room brightening slowly as he gains distance from it.

Re: Elemental History
Aileen pondered on the teacher's words for a bit. "I understand what you're saying, but... isn't it a little dull? Having only the Dark around? I don't think I would be able to handle it.", she thought aloud, as it was clear that there was no malice within her question, only pure curiosity.

"Thank you!", Aileen spoke with a genuine smile as she brushed her hands against the surprisingly resistant material that was part of the Dark-infused flower. "I hope to learn how to create one at some point, though I still have a long road ahead."

Hearing Geb decide that he would leave for the Beach, Aileen turned and waved towards the boy-turned-elemental-construct, a soft smile on her lips. "It was nice meeting you, Geb! Have fun at the beach!", as soon as she finished speaking, she noticed Floyd arrive and introduce himself, earning a raised eyebrow from the woman. She was curious to learn more about him, as she didn't see him around during the Elemental History lesson.

Nodding towards the teacher, Aileen followed the man back towards the Darkness Primary, Lilith flying close by.

Re: Elemental History
Geno enters the room, seeming unaware of who just left it. His eyes shine proudly, and he grins in a way the Complete would not have seen in a long time. The events of the morning with his new student revived something that might be worthy of the title hope in his distrusting heart, and he nurtured it carefully in his breast all the way to the glass classroom. "Cassandra, miss, I would like a word with you. It's about my limits as a teacher and regulations on further study. I may need a meeting with the Elders." Some excitement is in his voice, and his smile grows broader.

Re: Elemental History
Tony, having gotten bored of waiting, decided to go looking for his mentor. He approached the familiar glass building and knocked on the door before entering. "Madame Complete, do you know if there's any classes for the Earth ele-" Then, he noticed Geno talking with the complete and immediately continued, "Oh, I'm sorry. I'll come back later."

Re: Elemental History
In reply to Tony Rockwell (msg # 149):

He nods once more to the Complete, then turns. Seeing the student teacher in front of him waiting outside the room, his eyes went apologetic for a moment and then he walks to the door with a near blank expression. Then he walks out the door, gesturing for the young man to follow.

The walk with the instructor would be boring, filled with the oppressive lack of conversation, as always. The joy he had felt some moments ago died completely when complications arose with the student and the Complete. Serves me right for having hope. Bah. A man like me should know there is no hope anymore. It would seem that the student was about to move away.

As they approached the classroom, Geno walked in without saying anything to the student teacher beside him.
