Christina Petrova
Christina knew this obviously wasn't true, but it also wasn't true that he had kidnapped Charlie, and the fact that her sister had tried to save this guy, whoever ti was, so abruptly, lead Christie to believe he was, in fact, a good guy and possibly an acquaintance of Charlie's. "Is this true, young man?" She inquired out of courtesy.

Kaz Novacek
Thank goodness for Charlie, he thought, and, as he couldn't move or speak from the shackles and the gag on his mouth, he limited himself to nod desperately. The girl he'd seen earlier that day that vaguely resembled Charlie gave the order to set him free and the guards did as told. His theories were now even more correct. Princess Petrova...


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She stopped herself from sagging in relief and arched her back, crossing her arms over her chest, "I suggest one of you should drive him back. I'm sure he has a busy schedule," she said, not looking at Kaz anymore.


2d868396a1164e1115173f012c8a1f7c
Kaz Novacek
"Charlie, I–" He started before a guard took him by the arm, to which Kaz freed himself by pulling out his arm, "Charlie, please stay with me."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
Her head whipped around to stare at him, her jaw dropping. "What?" She asked then flickering her gaze towards Christie then back to him.


2d868396a1164e1115173f012c8a1f7c
Kaz Novacek
He was now gripping for straws, "I, I do not want you to leave." If he was going to act upon his impulses, tehn he might as well try to be convincing.


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She closed her mouth for a moment before saying, in Czech, "I can't. I told you. I can't. I have to go back with them. They'll drag me back by my hair if I don't."


2d868396a1164e1115173f012c8a1f7c
Kaz Novacek
"Then take me with you," he pleaded, in Czech too, "I'll get a job in Elementrium and send money to my family in here. Have an education to get better jobs in here."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
Her heart thudded in her chest. Have Kaz...at the academy? It was like her lives had separated themselves into two different lives. Her duchess life and her life in Prague. Two seperate entities that she never thought could merge. She forced herself to not look at Christie again. "Why? You're happy here. You have a great life, why would you...why would you leave your siblings?" God she was such a hypocrite.


2d868396a1164e1115173f012c8a1f7c
Kaz Novacek
He decided he needed something dramatic now. Something he maybe truly felt. He decided that it was mostly true. Or fully true. Now he couldn't tell, "It could never be a great life again without you."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She stared at him in silence. Oh, Jesus. "Kaz," she said quietly, "I am not your priority. Don't you dare make the same mistake I did. You'll regret it." She turned to look at Christie for help.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
She recognized that look for help, "I don't speak Czech, but I suppose he's asking you to stay with him. She's not, she needs to go back," she made hands gestures for her last few words.


2d868396a1164e1115173f012c8a1f7c
Kaz Novacek
"Did you not listen to me when I spoke English? I understand the language. No need to play charades with me to understand you."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"Don't talk to her like that," Charlie snapped at him, still not reverting back to English. "Kaz, please go. I can't take you away from them. It's not worth it."


2d868396a1164e1115173f012c8a1f7c
Kaz Novacek
"So you're just going to leave me here," he continued the thought. "Got it".


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"You knew that," she snapped, pushing at his chest, "you were fine with it an hour ago. You knew I was leaving in the beginning. I told you not to get attatched."


2d868396a1164e1115173f012c8a1f7c
Kaz Novacek
"I know, I know..." He raised his hands in defeat. "I'm still fine with it, Charlie."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"Then, I suggest you get out of here, Kaz, because you won't get the life you want if you follow me. It's different there, especially if the royals think you saved my life."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
She was completely confused and called the guards' attention. "Stop him from touching Duchess Petrova," she ordered, and did so, apprehending him at his arms, "What is it that you want, young man, for helping my dear sister?"


2d868396a1164e1115173f012c8a1f7c
Kaz Novacek
"I want Charlie to stay with me. I don't want her to leave." He finally said in English.


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She inched towards Christie. Saying in Czech, "don't do this, don't do this."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
She didn't hnderstand Charlie, so she ignored her. Christina, still not sure if the guy was an elemental, threw a quick and high-pressured stream of water at him, and he stumbled back before cocking his head at Christie. She did it again but this time, he heated the water up before it touched him and made it vaporize. "Huh," started Christie, impressed, "If you are an elemental, then why not go to the Academy instead of begging the Duchess to leave her duties and stay?"


2d868396a1164e1115173f012c8a1f7c
Kaz Novacek
He looked at the ground and exchanged a quick look with Charlie. "My family doesn't have to send me to the Academy. Much less my other three siblings."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
She thought about his answer for a second before a solution came to mind, "Charlie, you say this guy saved you?"


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She turned to look at her with creased eyebrows, "sure," she replied.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"Then why not let him come to the Academy? The principal is a big friend of the Petrovas. I'm sure we could arrange a free tuition for the hero that saved Duchess Petrova and his family."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
Her jaw dropped, silent for a minute as she forced herself to think through it. "If that's what he wants," she eventually said.


2d868396a1164e1115173f012c8a1f7c
Kaz Novacek
He smirked internally, but on the outside, he just looked surprised, "Would you Royals really do that for my family?" His eyes reddened and he continued, "You are nothing like the other elementals say you are."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She turned to glare at him. "Thanks, Kaz," she said, "I'd go get your family, then. Should we wait?" She asked, looking at Christie.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
As the elemental left to fetch his family she #SHOOK her head, "Pish Posh. He will take time and he already knows were the extraction point is. Now come here, we must leave.


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She looked after Kaz before moving to Christie, offering her hand. Her stomach churning. This was it. Whatever's going to happen, will. At least she'll have Kaz? Her stomach twisted harder and she winced. No, she didn't think it would be a good thing. Not after he found out.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
Christina took her twin sister's hand and smiled softly, "We're going home, Charlie," She blinked as the transport to Elementrium started.


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She met her eyes but didn't respond, didn't even smile. That place wasn't home. Not anymore. Despite this, she gripped her sister's hand and forced herself not to react to the transport.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
Soon enough, they were in the delivery point in a small factory in the outskirts of the Elemental-neutral area.


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She looked around, not letting go of her hand.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"Come on, our limousine is is waiting for us right outside." She was sort of dragging her towards the exit.


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She stumbled after her, grabbing onto Christie's arm to stop from falling, before frowning, "geez, you were prepared," she replied. She'd really fallen off the wagon in Prague, she'd lost all her muscle.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"Well, not really. We were actually expecting you to be gone. I only really told the limo to come meet us here back in the black sedan via text messages." Christie shrugged, "Still, it will come handy to get you in quicker to the academy."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"Oh, right," she replied, finding her pace, her mind still on her body. She'd be destroyed in P.E. "Guess I became too comfortable there."

CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"If I was still as paranoid as I was in the beginning, I probably would have gotten better strategies and methods to notice if you found me. Look over my shoulder more. It was just a comment." She said, wincing.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"Ah," she started, and now didn't know what to say, "Well, isn't that good in a way? At least you're back with us now."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"I'm back with you," she corrected before slipping her hand out to make her way to the limo. "Reckon anyone's going to start yelling?" She asked her, out of curiousity.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"Mother is definitely going to scream st you. I don't think father will, he is very excited to have you back."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"He's not my father," she muttered. "And fine, I can deal with my mothers wrath. I can forget about it by night and I will never have to relive it."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"I hope you will be able to forget it, because she is pissed. She definitely knows you escaped. I don't know how, and she hasn't said it out loud, but I know she knows."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"She won't be able to say it, not with Kaz," she replied, "and let's admit it, our mother is strange."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"She is..." CHristina the trailed off and bit her lower lip, uncertain as if to she should speak out her thought. SHe turned around and made sure they were alone and in no one's hearing radius, "So. Who is that guy, anyway?"


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"Oh, no one really, he was my next door neighbour. He was the one who drove me to the station earlier."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
She shrugged, "Sounded pretty clingy to me. Did you make him sleep with you and then left him out to dry?"


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She flushed, sinking into her seat, "no, no I didn't do that. He's just a friend."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"Your blush begs to differ. Or were you just happy to see him?" She joked.


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"Or maybe I'm blushing because of what path you jumped to," she muttered, "no, i wasn't. i hoped he went home and stayed there."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"If you wanted him to stay there you should have told me not to invite him to the Academy."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"I was surprised you so easily did it," she replied, "regardless, you realise he and his siblings can debunk the entire story, right?"


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
She shrugged, "I'm not saying we should blackmail them, but they should be grateful enough to follow our story. If they don't, then why would anyone believe a family of elementals over the lost duchess and the water princess?"


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"True..." she replied, "you'll like them, I think? Ones quiet, the other's a bit of a musician and the other is...hard to explain."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"What do you mean by 'hard to explain'?" She aurquoted and cocked her head to the side.


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"She's just eccentric," she said, not sure how to explain it, "that's all. Neither of the girls are like me, if that's anything."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
Not really sure what she'd mesnt, Christie limited herself to a shrug, "Is that necessarily bad?"


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"No, no it's not," she replied before looking out the window, "I know where we are." She was surprised this, "we're only ten minutes away from the academy."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
She looked at her GPS, "Eight, technically, but yeah, I am glad you still remember some things and places."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"It's hard not to," she observed, "it's not the type of place you forget. Hey, how's Chris and Selene? Are they still together."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"Both are doing generally good. They are still together. I mean, one would hope so."


OOc: do they know about her pregnancy

OOC:Idk


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She hummed before holding her breath as the academy came into view. "It hasn't changed," she breathed out.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"It certainly hasn't. Well, not the building itself, but some people have changed. You sure know that some are for better and others for the worst."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"Oh? Like who," she asked out of politness


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"Doesn't matter", Christina waved her hand in dismissal.


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"Oh, okay," she replied taking a look at her, her eyebrows creasing, like she was looking for something but the pulling in of the car dragged her out of her thoughts and she took one last look at the academy before slipping out.


TIMESKIP


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She sat in the principal's office, of all places, in one of the seats across from their desk. She was told her mother would be in shortly and wondered if the waiting game was a tactic, make the suspence even worse.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
She gulped as she opened the principal's office and turned to face Charlie with eyes wide open, "Mother is here."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She rubbed her temple and looked back at her with a sigh, mouthing 'wish me luck', before rising from her chair, turning slightly to look at her mother. Her back was straight, her hands curled into fists by her sides, slightly gripping the fabric of her shirt.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
The tall and brooding figure entered the empty office -save for Charlie- and looked down to her sitting daughter with the gaze of a regal eagle. "Charlotte."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She met her eyes, forcing back a flinch and swallowed, "mother," she replied, "you look well, have you gotten a new haircut? It suits you."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
Christina clapped her hands together and closed the door behind her, "Well... Isn't it nice to see each other again?" Christina felt that this role didn't suit her. She was used to it being her who had problems with their mother. It was usually Christie who rebelled, who didn't attend to family dinners and who didn't have the best etiquette. Charlie usually was the mediator; the pacifier. Not the other way around. It made Christie nervous.


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
Her heart was beating in her chest, her thoughts similar to Christie, except also thinking thank goodness she didn't leave. Charlie couldn't remember a time where she was alone with her mother. "Oh, definitely," she said, biting her cheek.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"Would have been much better to reunite under better circumstances, but I duppose you are not completely wrong, Christina." The Quern replied before looking at Charlie, "So, daughter of mine," her serious face sort of became contemptous, "Why did you escape?"


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She fought back a reaction to the look, gripping her clothes harder, "well, I escaped the basement due to it being a bit...unpleasant. Being kidnapped and losing ones agency really does raise a need to escape. I thought you would have been happy...the months of knowing I was kidnapped, held under ransom, must have eaten you alive."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
Her mother's eye twitched brazenly and she flicked at her daughter's wrist hard with her finger, "Don't play games with me, young lady. Why did you escape your dorm here? I know you were not kidnapped."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She yelped as she was hit, her other hand going over to protect it, rubbing the spot, "I have people to back me up, Tiara," she mumbled, "they're arriving tomorrow morning. They can tell you I was." She was digging a hole, she knew that. Someone was bound to uncover her lie, and she was never a particularly good liar either. Rathered to stay away from the topic than straight out lie.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"Oh please," she scoffed, "How am I supposed to believe in your lie when it is noticeable you don't even believe in it?"


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
Her stomach sunk and she flushed, "I don't really want to believe it. But it's the truth. And it's the only thing you're goin–" She stopped herself. She'd never really been the one to antagonise her mother but she had the same level as pride as her, she'll concede to that, and she'd be damned if someone wounded it. But her fear of her mother did temper that pride. "I'm sorry for the worry that it caused you, mother."


Template:ChristieWb


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She let out a shaky breath, "you realise...it would just be easier if I told the truth. A lot less...damning of the Novaceks," she said with a blink, knowing that probably didn't make sense, "but hey! That wasn't so bad."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
Christie shook her head, "No it wan't that bad, yet... Why didn't you tell her the truth? We do know she is eventually will find out, anyways."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
SHe paused, her jaw dropping, "well...I thought I was protecting you. I mean, you lied to her and I thought...we...are you telling me you expected me to tell the truth?"


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
She sighed loudly and rubbed her left arm with her right forearm anxiously, "No, not really..." she trailed off and closed her eyes.


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"Well, whatever happens, we'll deal with it when it happens. No use stressing about it now, what's done is done. Not like she'll kill any of us," she mused.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"I don't know, really. We have never met your dad and I think it might be because she sent to kill him to hide the secret. I could be wrong, but it'd make sense. "


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She bit back a reaction. "Yeah, maybe, though, he could be very much alive. It's not like there's been any dukes being killed in the past few decades so...who knows." He was alive and kicking last time Charlie checked which was...oh, a month ago?


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
She shrugged, "Let's hope he is. I'd really like to get the chance to meet him at the same time as you, in that case. Would love to see your reaction," she said innocently, trying to lighten up the mood.


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She bit her lip. "Come on," she said eventually, changing the subject, "lets get to the dorms or something. I'd hate to be around when class is let out."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
CHristie shook her head and yawned, "Funny, huh? This feeling I have that we were doomed for lying even before we did..." she replied wistfully and a tad suspiciously.


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She turned to look at her with raised eyebrows. She never was one for vague philosphy. "What?" She asked, hoping Christie wasn't picking up on her uneasiness on the topic.


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
She shook her head dismissively and offered a weak smile, "Don't mind me, Charlie."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"I wish I couldn't," she replied, "but you seem to be around me like a wasp. I can't but mind you."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
She glared quickly at her sister before continuing, "Then like you said, we should get going to our dorms."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She grinned at the glare, "hurry up," she said, slipping out of the room, "so, are you still hung up over whats his face?"


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"Coppe?" She furrowed her eyebrows. "I haven't thought about him ever since we had a discussion about him about a week later after we got here to the academy."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"Oh, right," she said with a blink, "good. He was an ass."


OOC:Can we timeskip to the dorms lol

TIMESKIP TO DORMS RIP


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
Once they got to their dorms, Christie sighed and dropped onto her bed, "Today has been a very tiring day. I'm exhausted."


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
"Oh," she said, looking around before flicking the curtains back to look out the window, "are you going to sleep, then?"


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"I don't know..." Christie's voice was muffled through the pillow and sheets. "Should I?"


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She looked at the clock. "It's nearly six. Slightly acceptable time to sleep," she said, scratching her chin. "I mean...no use going to be awake but half asleep."


ChristieP1
Christina Petrova
"True. So then goodnight." She yawned snd buried her face deep into the pillow.


CharlieWb2
Charlotte Petrova
She looked at her sister with a frown. Now was the perfect time to leave again. No one really knew she was back so it's not like anyone was on the look out to stop her. PLus, she felt her bank card, filled with money she stole from her mother, in her pocket. She'd get away with it. Be far far away before Christie even wakes up. The Novaceks would...would get what they need. An education. She told herself that over and over again. The Petrova's wouldn't bother them if she was gone, Christie would make sure, out of obligation, guilt even, that the Novaceks were left under the radar of their mother. Wouldn't she? She bit her lips, not moving her eyes. Could she do it, though? Was she that cruel? To have her sister find her, give her the confidence that Charlie was secured, then leave? Christie could forgive her once, but twice? Christie probably would, Charlie knew she'd forgive Christie a thousand times if the roles were reversed...was her secret worth it that much? She covered her mouth, forcing the tears back down. She wouldn't break down. Not now, not ever. He'd win. He'd win. She turned back to the window...it was so tempting, though. To just sneak out. She'd never been heavy footed, no one would notice or even bat an eye. Plus, she was wearing clothes that no one would associate with Charlotte Petrova. Christie Petrova...perhaps. If anyone did notice her, she could probably get away with being her sister. They looked similar enough. She turned away. Enough. Enough. Enough running. It's not like she did anything wrong. She walked over to her room, her new room, and pushed the door open and bit back a moan. So many boxes to go through.
