Encounter (Continued) (12/3/17 - 5/4/17)

Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
Why? he texted back, furrowing his eyebrows as he read over the text again. He looked up to avoid a pedestrian walking their dog and sped up to reach the Academy gates.
Grace GIF
Grace Bridgewater-Edan
"I was told not to tell anyone about the conversation I had with Aspen. She's a spy working for the Lunar Kingdom, I can sense it. She's dangerous."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
Isn't everyone dangerous at this point? We're going against Vic—I mean you know who anyway. Everyone's a potential threat, even miss goody-two-shoes.
Grace GIF
Grace Bridgewater-Edan
"I will not stop until Victoria and her minions are gone. I've already disowned her as my cousin. She's nothing to me."
Aspen Starker 1
Aspen Starker
Upon not finding Grace at the yogurt store, Aspen decided to get back to the Academy--not in a hasty search to find Grace, but because. Academy stuff. She was still a student, after all.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
That's the spirit! I'm going to our dorm, where are you?
Grace GIF
Grace Bridgewater-Edan
"I'm in my room. I'm thinking about getting some of my inheritance transferred into an Elementrium bank."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
I could help you choose, there is some banks out there that really aren't good choices to keep your money in, especially if considered royalty.
Grace GIF
Grace Bridgewater-Edan
"That's true. I'm just so confused and lost..." She did not finish her text message, as a certain someone found her. She was attacked, as Victoria had discovered Grace's plans to stop her.


(OOC: I'm gonna try and conclude Victoria's storyline, so this will be one part of it)

(OOC:  Ooh, okay~)


Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
After he hadn't received any messages for a couple of minutes, blaring sirens immediately went off in his head and he picked up speed as he dashed inside the dorm building and towards Dorm 1. He shoved open the door and then immediately rushed to Grace's bedroom. "Gracie? Gracie are you in there?!"
Grace GIF
Grace Bridgewater-Edan
Grace was still alive, but unconscious. A fire attack had been used on her, but she only received minor injuries - due to her being a Fire Elemental and Fire Elementals being able to endure fire. However, one thing that was noticeable was the small stab wound, and the piece of orange fabric somehow lying next to the bloodied knife -- which gave away the attacker's identity. To put it all into perspective, she had been stabbed and attacked with fire, for what Victoria had found out. The divide in the Edan family was deepening.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
Caelum flipped the door open, his eyes immediately focused on the unconscious body of Grace Edan lying on the floor. He analyzed the situation with anguished thoughts and cradled the girl in his arms so he could carry her to the infirmary.
Grace GIF
Grace Bridgewater-Edan
Whilst in unconsciousness, Grace was having weird dreams.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
Caelum rushed out of the dorm building and towards the hospital wing, not stopping to apologize to anyone he bumped into. Thank God for sliding doors, there was no way he'd be able to open the door and carry Grace. "This girl needs medical attention immediately!" he shouted, as he barreled up the front desk. Immediately a stretcher was brought and he laid her on it, nervously pacing as he watched the staff walk away.
Grace GIF
Grace Bridgewater-Edan
Grace was okay, and alive, but due to her position on the stretcher, she looked like a corpse.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
Caelum eventually forgot how much time passed. He left at one point to get food but once he was allowed to visit Grace in the hospital room, he demoted to staying there.
Grace GIF
Grace Bridgewater-Edan
The nurses walked in and out of the hospital room. At one point, they pinned Grace's medical file. It was noted that she was a duchess, so she received additional treatment. Eventually, one of the nurses approached Caelum. "I believe that you are affiliated with Duchess Bridgewater-Edan. In that case, we have the right to inform you that we may need to put Duchess Edan into a comatose state. Luckily, she has a high chance of surviving her stab wound. The coma will help her to recover."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
He listened intently, worried etched on his face. "I can still visit her right?"
Grace GIF
Grace Bridgewater-Edan
"Of course. Just as long as you remember to go to class." The nurse replied, smiling, before putting the oxygen mask over Grace's face.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
He nodded in gratitude, "Thank you so much."
Grace GIF
Grace Bridgewater-Edan
The nurse replied with "You're welcome", before leaving.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline looked at Grace, from another bed. She recognised her immediately as being one of the Edans, and wondered if she had been attacked by Victoria, someone who she generally disliked.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
Caelum stepped into the room, quietly making his way to Grace's bedside, not aware of Erraline in the other bed on the other side of the room.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Behind Erraline was her recent diagnosis, "anemia", on the board. She looked at the diagnosis, before looking back at Grace. She then turned her attention to Caelum. "Excuse me, may we talk?" She asked politely.
Grace GIF
Grace Bridgewater-Edan
Grace was now in a comatose state, but her dreams continued.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
He glanced up to catch sight of Erraline. "Oh... Um, sure."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline rose from her bed, even though she was advised not to. She took Caelum into an isolated corner. "I may have been able to deduce who attacked Grace. Victoria attacks people in a similar fashion."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
He nodded slowly, registering the information. It arose to him that he could easily defeat Victoria if she couldn't use or lost control of her powers. But first, how was he supposed to do that... He looked up again at Erraline. "Thank you."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"No problem. I just want Victoria to be dealt with."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"Don't we all?" he sighed. "I can't wait for this sick parade to end and Victoria to be locked away."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"I guess this means that we'll have to ally, to help bring her down. I know of a certain Knight that's willing to help us out."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"Alright, who is it? As long as they're trustworthy I'm fine with it."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Her name's Akane. She's a Water Knight, and an advocate of honour.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"Sounds like someone I can trust. I know someone else who may be helpful in taking down Victoria, but unlike Akane he's extremely unpredictable."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Ah. Well, before we can attack Victoria, we'll have to think of a plan. A surprise attack when she's vulnerable would be best. I'd say the attack should take place when she's in the Fire Kingdom Palace's throne room."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"Challenging her when she least expects it... Impressive."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"I know right?" She responded, laughing a little. "Alright, here's my details. Me, you and Akane will have to meet up soon. But first, I know you'll probably want to spend time with Grace."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"Yes, thank you. I'll bring the other person too if we can reach an agreement. I assure you, he'll be very helpful." Caelum inched a little closer to Grace's bed and enclosed his hand around hers. "Thank you."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"No problem." Erraline replied, before walking back to her bed.


Meetup (5/4/17 - 7/5/17)

Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline was discharged from the hospital. Wearing her beloved fur coat, she decided to contact Caelum.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
After a couple long, tiring arguments and jabs, Caelum had finally convinced his unpredictable asset to come to the meetup. At the time, he was waiting for some type of contact from Erraline.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
She contacted Caelum through a text. "Meet me at the gates of the Academy, from there we'll proceed to where Akane is residing."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
Got it, he texted back. "C'mon, we're going now," Caelum alerted the person resting on his window sill. They jumped off and proceeded to follow him out of the dorm building and over to the school gates. "Morning Erraline."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Morning, Caelum. I believe it's been two weeks since we last met. Funny how time flies."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"I know, it's truly ridiculous to believe sometimes," he stated as well. "I think it would be fair to introduce my contribution to this mission. You can go ahead and be shocked if you'd like—he's an Edan as well. June?"

The person Caelum spoke of, somersaulted out of a tree and landed on his feet gracefully. He made his way over to them, bowing respectfully to Erraline. He said nothing, his Edan brown eyes glittering with something unknown.

Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline looked at Seojun with intrigue, and respect. "An Edan with Asian heritage. Now that's new. No offense. But then again, if you think about it, it's rather normal if you compare the vast heritages of your family. The lunatic we're trying to stop hails from Stockholm herself."
SE36
Seojun Edan
Seojun nodded, his stance tense. "I am not surprised. The Edan influence really reaches to all the corners of the world, doesn't it?" he replied. "We should go now. The water kni—I mean Akane is waiting."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
Caelum watched the exchange with silence, a bit shocked about how civil Seojun was acting. Did it have something to do with Erraline's status? They were both of the same royalty statuses, so why would he put in such effort to do something like that? When Seojun announced they should go, Caelum seconded the opinion and waited for Erraline's confirmation.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Agreed. Let's go. Akane has kindly given me her details, so we can visit."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"Alright." Caelum waited for Erraline to lead the way, before he began following her, and Seojun following him.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline was the leader. She walked quickly. The sooner Victoria was dealt with before creating any more damage, the better.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"So, how far is Akane's house from here?" Caelum questioned.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Not far, apparently. As a Knight, she was required to have a house that's not far from the Academy campus."
SE36
Seojun Edan
"Seems only logical," Seojun commented, speaking for the second time that morning.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline nodded in agreement. "Speaking of such house, we're almost there." She pointed to a distinctive house at the end of the street.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
The both of them remained silent for the rest of the walk, not having much or little to say.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline knocked on the door, once they reached Akane's house.
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane opened the door, revealing her Water Knight uniform. Once she noticed that the people at her door were here to gather her for the impending "mission", she allowed them to enter her house.
SE36
Seojun Edan
Upon witnessing Akane open the door, Seojun shot her a friendly wave and a teasing wink from where he stood, the back, his expression between amused and excited. He followed the rest into the house, subtly inching a little closer to Akane, making sure no one noticed.
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane smirked and gave a small wave back at Seojun, having already met him before. She liked to refer to him as "the mischievous boy she met in the training facility", because he was the one who could break her out of her stoic behaviour easily.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Now that we've all met up, I guess it's time to discuss formalities regarding the plan to take down Victoria for good. We are teenagers after all, despite us being Elementals, so it's not like we can carry out a full-blown battle. However, what we can hopefully accomplish is a mercenary mission. In this room are two Water Elementals, a Fire Elemental and a Lunar Elemental that is myself. Combined, we represent three of the elements. Victoria and her army represents one. Yet, she has managed to conquer 30% of the Fire Kingdom." Erraline proceeded with her speech.
SE36
Seojun Edan
"...And the percent is going to rise if we don't act now," Seojun continued. "Victoria works hastily, she's a very impatient person. It's a flaw we can exploit if we use it correctly to our advantage."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
Caelum nodded, listening to the two before giving his own input. "It's logical to attack when she's convinced she's victorious because she'll believe she no longer has opposers. Seojun can sneak us in, but it depends on how much Victoria trusts him." He turned to Seojun. "Does she still trust you, Seojun?"
SE36
Seojun Edan
He shrugged nonchalantly. "To an extent. She's starting to get suspicious though. It's most likely paranoia."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Here's the plan of how it will go." She announced, after listening to Caelum and Seojun and taking in what they were saying. "Seojun, you will attempt to grant us access into the Palace since you're the only Fire Elemental affiliated with us. If we enter, the mercenaries will quietly move in and go undetected from the corrupt Fire Knights that are on guard. These mercenaries, although loyal to the Lunar Kingdom, have been hired by me, so they'll proceed with the job. I will serve as the distraction to Victoria, pretending to submit to her so the Knights don't attack right away. Akane, since you are working with us despite being loyal to the Water Kingdom, you will be a mercenary also. In fact, you and Seojun are in charge of the mercenaries. When it is time to strike, I will give a signal. Caelum will pass on the signal to you two," Erraline gestured to Seojun and Akane. "And then the fight begins. I'll take care of fighting Victoria."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"I feel like we're part of an Assassin's Creed story. If only life was as easy as video games," Caelum noted. A smile briefly flickered across Seojun's face but disappeared just as quickly as it had come. The moment of true happiness was brief and hard to catch, but Caelum still felt a sort of happiness radiating off the other.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"I guess it's like that. It's rare for these events to occur. Hopefully, we'll have it under control and Victoria will see the punishment that she deserves. Alright, the time is 3:00pm. By 9:00pm, our plan will begin. So, what should we do before then?"
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"Well, we should definitely rest. I think Seojun and I can work out an excuse for all of us not to attend classes today. It'd be pointless to confront Victoria with no energy."
SE36
Seojun Edan
Seojun blankly ignored the other two standing in the room and walked over to Akane, his brown eyes trailing her face. "Hey sweetheart," he greeted her quietly. "Miss me?"
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline agreed with Caelum. "That sounds plausible."
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
"Of course I did." Akane replied, fighting off the temptation to smirk.
SE36
Seojun Edan
He lifted his hand and let his fingers dance on her cheek, caressing it. "You look shorter than the last time I saw you. Or is that just me...?"
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
"Maybe you're not used to seeing me in my uniform?" Akane suggested.
SE36
Seojun Edan
"Oh! I didn't even notice that." Seojun stepped back to study Akane's uniform. "Ah, cute. Is this what all the Water Knights wear?"
SE36
Seojun Edan
"It suits you," he hummed in approval. "You do look smaller than usual though. Hey, guess what ended a day ago?"
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
"And what might that be, Seojun?" She asked. "I don't really know what to guess."
SE36
Seojun Edan
He smiled, a mysterious and devilish grin. "Our game of Hide and Seek. And just in time too. It would be a shame if I had to save the Fire Kingdom from collapsing and then get my head chopped off in another. Very inconvient for my busy schedule." He mockingly shook his head.
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
"Lucky you."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Alright. I think we should leave our discussion here. We know each of our roles in what is to come. The most important thing to remember is to have courage, as we're doing the work of adults. See you later, guys. We'll meet up again at 7:30pm, outside the school gates."


The End of Victoria's Dream (7/5/17 - )

Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
The time was 7:30pm, and Erraline was at the designated meeting spot. In just an hour and a half, they would begin their mission to get Victoria imprisoned. It was a dangerous mission, but Erraline had faith in the others - a stark contrast to her personality coming into the Academy. She blamed meeting Alek and her feelings softening for that (not that she hated the change, she didn't hate it at all - she liked it).
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
A little after 7:30, about five minutes later Caelum had shown up. He seemed absorbed with the small tablet-like device he was holding and only uttered a quick high to Erraline.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline responded with a small "hello". She waited patiently for Akane to arrive.
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane was ready for the mission. Wearing her Water Knight uniform, she rushed out of her house and headed straight for the school gates.
SE36
Seojun Edan
Seojun arrived last, probably the most casual looking with a pair of black sunglasses, a beanie over his mint green hair and a latte in his hand.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Well that's certainly a get-up you've got going on there, Seojun."
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane looked at Seojun and giggled, even though she was trying to be stoic.
SE36
Seojun Edan
He smirked a little and shrugged in response. "Didn't feel like changing and I'm not wasting a good latte just because I didn't have time to finish it."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"I see your point. Okay, I assume we all got enough rest?"
SE36
Seojun Edan
He glanced at Caelum and then himself. "I dunno about Ky, but I'm fine."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"I took a pretty lengthy nap so I'll be alright."
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
"I slept for a couple of hours."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"That's good to hear. Alright, it's 7:30pm. The mission doesn't start until 9. I have been in contact with the mercenaries. They will be preparing for the journey to the Fire Kingdom. Okay, should we get food beforehand or would that affect the progress of the mission?"
SE36
Seojun Edan
He shrugged and took a sip of his latte. "Depends. It's bad to fight on an empty stomach, but if you overeat, it slows you down."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"I just ate."
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
"I'm not hungry." Akane remarked.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"I'm going to need stamina if I'm going to fight a Fire Princess. So, I'm going to find something to eat."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"We'll go with you. It'll be inconvenient to separate now," Caelum pointed out, slipping his hands in his pockets.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Okay. In that case, let's go to Lunarbucks."
SE36
Seojun Edan
"Kay." He tugged his beanie further over his bangs and took another sip of his latte. "Lead the way."

Lunarbucks (13/5/17 - )

Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline led the group to Lunarbucks.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"So, while Erraline eats, we should plan out the specifics of our strategy."
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
"Agreed. Erraline suggested a strategy earlier today. Shouldn't we go over that first?"
SE36
Seojun Edan
"I suppose." Seojun sat in a chair, toying with it by spinning around. Caelum facepalmed at him and held in a chuckle.
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
"Okay, the first part of her suggested strategy is that Seojun will get us access into the Fire Kingdom castle. However, we'll have to keep the mercenaries hidden."
SE36
Seojun Edan
"Isn't there like a bunch of fire kingdom guard uniforms in the Drama club's room? I think they did a play on the Fire Kingdom awhile back. We could use it to disguise the mercenaries."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"I'll get that later then. So the mercenaries will sneak in disguised as guards. Fire Knights generally tend to be males, so we can't use the same disguise for Akane. She's also a particularly infamous knight, so she can't just waltz in there without something that discloses her identity."
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
"I can find a different access point into the castle."
SE36
Seojun Edan
"Nah. The chick's insane but she knows her stuff. They've placed like a million security measures around the castle. Even if we manage to get the mercenaries in, Akane is going to be a whole different level of difficult."
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane sighed. "I'll be alright. I have an idea that might help my disguise, so I won't be detected." She turned to Caelum. "Has power-borrowing ever been done before? I could potentially borrow Erraline's ability to blend in with the shadows. Only problem is that I don't know whether power-borrowing has been done before, and if it is possible, how long it will last for."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
