The cafeteria was big and crowded today, and there were a large array of food options.

Bunny, it appeared, was a vegetarian, judging by her food selection.  She didn't seem to care about anybody else, however.

"So, anybody you'd like to look for?" she asked.

"Let's see if I can spot some of my teammates," Maria said.

None of them were in sight.  Granted, lately Kit-- "Loxley"-- was hard to spot, but they were apparently lost in the crowds.  Or going off-campus to eat, perhaps.

"There's some people I know," said Bunny.  She was leading Maria towards a table with a three others-- two of the participants in the soccer game (one had been flying, one had used robots) and a young man she didn't recognize, but who looked markedly younger than everyone else there.

Maria waited for Bunny to introduce either her or her friends.

"Hey everyone!" said Bunny.  "This is Maria, my new roomie!  Um, Maria, these are Claire, Rosa and Des."

They greeted her warmly; behind Claire's eyes was something evaluating her, as if wondering who she was, and what she was doing here, but she still smiled, and the smile also reached her eyes-- whoever was a friend of Bunny's was a friend of hers, apparently.

Claire cleared her throat.

"Maria," she said.  "I can't help but notice a few old injuries... you've been in some tough situations, haven't you?"

"She's Shade!" said Bunny, excitedly.  The eyes of the other three widened.

"...I'm hoping we can talk, later," said Claire.  "I'd like to learn more from you, about your experiences, if that's all right."

"...So I've been messing around with some things," said Rosa.  "I do tech stuff.  So does the squirt here, but he does physics-breaking stuff.  I make current tech better.  And I'm thinking in terms of secure communications.  Stuff that's hard to detect or spot.  Stuff other people don't know the frequencies of.  Interested in helping me test sometime?"

"You, uh, might actually want to do it sooner," said Rosa, sliding a tiny ear-bud over to Maria.  "They work just fine, I think.  And nobody can listen in.  That's the important part."

Maria picked it up and placed it in her ear.

"Thank you."

"...and what I want to talk to you about is how to do the thing you did," came Claire's voice in her ear.  "We're not going to just wait in this school to help the city out.  There are serious problems out there.  We can help.  We need to help."
