It had been weeks since a certain Water duke named, Jasper Reeves, had come out of his room. While he did come out for the essential, Jasper didn't come out for much else. Life at the Academy was growing boring for him and in all honesty, he had considered just leaving - not that anyone would really notice. Now because of some meeting all the dukes and duchesses had to attend, the water elemental was making his way through the empty halls - his hands shoved into his pocket and his head hung low.
Alice eccentrically made her way through the halls, excited about the progress she's made recently with her research. She wandered down the halls, humming to herself. Honestly, she spotted Jasper down the hall much later before she decided it was appropriate to approach him. She'd seen him in her Water class and he didn't seem to be particularly too interested in anything. He actually seemed to be quite passive about everything. "Hey Jasper," she greeted him, stopping in front of him to talk.
Because his gaze was fixed on the floor, Jasper hadn't noticed Alice until it was almost to late. Lucky for the Water duke he spotted her legs and was able to stop inches away. "Oh umm hey... Alice?" He answered, saying her name a bit hesitantly as he was unsure if he was right about it or not. "Sorry, i'm bad with names." Jasper admitted before rubbing the back of his neck with his right hand nervously.
"If we're going, to be honest, I had a negative one out of ten chance of getting your name right so we're even," she beamed. "And yeah, it's Alice." She shifted a little, "You seem like you're going somewhere. Where are you going?"
She laughed a little along with him. "Well, if there's a small chance they don't take your head, you could hang out with me. If anyone comes by I'll say you went for a swim. Off the side of a cliff. Into the ocean."
His lips slightly curved up on one side, before looking around. "Sure why not, Not like a was gonna pay attention to anything they were gonna say anyways." Jasper answered, his gaze landing back on her and a full smile now shown on his lips. "Where did you wanna go?"
His shoulders moved in a shrugging motion, opening up his mouth to speak. "Sure, Lead the way." He said gesturing in the direction to the front of the school, where Jasper had suspected they'd be heading.
He nodded, his hands shoved into his pokets as he walked. "Sure, i'll go first." Jasper voiced before he began to think of a question. "What's your full name?" He asked, wanting to keep the questions light and easy - nothing to deep for now.
