Eleanor


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She sat on the window seat in the library, second floor, and stared at the strangers walking on the streets below.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Wearing new clothes and sunglasses, which she eventually took off and put on the round collar of her jacket, she walked into the library to read a book. She didn't notice Elle.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
Her head snapped over at the sound and stared at Erraline in slight surprise, slight suspicion and wondered if she should say something. She didn't particularly care for the girl–well, she didn't really care for anyone for that matter–and she doubted Erraline cared for her. But, Elle supposed, it would be rude if she wasn't going to announce herself, "nice clothes," she said as she looked at her up and down.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Thanks." She replied, in a tired voice. She then went to sit down and grabbed a dystopian book.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She slowly blinked, slightly insulted, "what book?" She pressed, now taking it on to get some sort of conversation out of her. Plus, it'd have been awkward to just drift back into silence.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"1984." Erraline replied, after looking at the cover.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
Her eyes sparked at this, "I've read that," she said with her voice jumping an octave midway through, "I really liked it."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline looked at Elle now. "Is it your favourite book?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She frowned at this, as if she was offended by the notion, "definitely not," she said and scrunched her nose up, "that is, and always be, the incorrigible optimists club."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Optimism is mainly a farce." Erraline replied, once again in her tired tone. "You can only get hints of it, before reality hits with the truth."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She shrugged, "sure," she said with a wave of her hand, "it's a title, they're not really that optomistic."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
Needing to talk to Elle, he paced around the mansion until he found the library. He had at the moment a light olive button-up shirt, some beige khakis and brown loafers. "Elle, you around here?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She glanced over at him and nodded once, "yeah, I am."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Different opinions." Erraline responded, before going quiet to read.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
Roger gulped, "Could we talk?" He then eyed Erraline quickly, trying to not make her notice before turning back to Elle, and mouthing, In private?


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline could hear Roger, whilst reading 1984.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She glanced at Erraline and sighed before moving past Roger and into the hallway.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"I know you may consider this as none of my business, but I personally consider myself as your friend, and I hope you do too."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
Her heart skipped a beat but her face was motionless. First rule, don't care. They'll tear you down. Those words resounded in her head and she pursed her lips slightly, "and you brought me out here to tell me that?" She asked slowly, hedging the sentance completely.


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"No. That was a preamble. I guess I just wanted to ask you... Do you have feelings for Julian?" He bit his bottom lip, hoping she was in a good mood and wouldn't explode in his face.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She narrowed her eyes, "again, you brought me out here to ask me that?" She asked slowly, "why do you even care? And for your information–I don't. I just play and he's fun."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"I care precisely because you are my friend. Friends are supposed to know this kind of information.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I don't have friends," slipped out of her mouth and she raised an eyebrow at him, "and I answered it. I said no, I don't."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
He looked down at the ground, "I beg your pardon for considering myself as your friend."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She pursed her lips, "as I said, I don't have feelings for anyone. I just play. Is that all?"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"I'm calling a meeting for everyone. I think we have to discuss something"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"After two weeks of nothing," she said, "yeah I can imagine we do."


B
Julian Argent
Julian, who had been aimlessly walking around the mansion, came across the library - getting there just at the time Roger announce he was going to call for a meeting. Instead of responding though, Julian walked into the room and spotted Erraline, a small smile forming on his face while doing so. "Hey Erraline." He said as he walked deeper into the room and letting his eyes wander around before they landed back on the Lunar duchess. "What you up to?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
she froze at the sight of Julian and watched him disappear into the library.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline looked up at Julian and smiled. "Hey Julian. I'm just reading at the moment. How are you?"


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
I teleported into the room. "Cold, probably." I shiver as I sit down and stoke the fire


B
Julian Argent
He moved his shoulders in a slight shrugging motion. "I've been better." He answered while sitting on the seat next to Erraline. "Which boring book you reading today?" He asked while looking at her with a small smirk.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
She responded to the smirk with a smirk. "1984 by George Orwell."


MiquelC7
Miquel Carax
"What did I miss?" He said as he rushed into the library, pj's on and teddy bear in hand, with his hair all messy.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She brushed in after him, "nothing, it's just started," she said giving Miquel a frown, "nice bear by the way," she added on.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"But actually, having a bear is pretty cool Miquel. I remember I had one when I was little. Provides a good emotional connection." I turn to Miquel. "Does it have a name?"


MiquelC7
Miquel Carax
Miquel nodded as he yawned and held the bear closed to his chest, "His name is Mail," he replied before he ran his head through his hair to sort of fix it.


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He barged into the room before eying them, "just Diana," he said, "we've been here for two weeks and I think my feet are going blue. This place is cold and miserable. Why did we come here during the winter?"


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
I shiver. "On the plus side, it is getting close to Christmas.."


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"Either way I wanted to talk about something. We haven't made any progress in the last week and as much as I wouldn't like saying this, I think we should go back with Charles."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Try and plug at him for more answers? I'm not sure if he's looking forward to seeing me again." I sigh, then shiver, even though I was wearing a long-sleeved t-shirt.


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"Charles was a tool, nothing more," he said with a shake of his head, "a toy simply because Katherine found him amusing. And I don't think he'd be happy to see any of us."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Then do we start going on the offensive?"


RogerN3
Roger Norwood
"What if I go alone?"


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"It's not a bad idea. But, I think I'd feel a little better if I was with you. I can probably handle Charles, despite his sometimes narcissistic attitude towards certain people." I try not to look at Liam at the last statement.


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"You know, trying not to care about what others think about you is a lifesaver, you should try it sometime," he said rolling his eyes at her.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
I chuckle. "Perhaps I should."


MiquelC7
Miquel Carax
"I don't really care as long as we hurry up and leave here as soon as possible. So far, two kids have already thrown up in my Armani clothes."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Guess we all found out what Miquel wants for Christmas."


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
"But we can't rely on Charles," he argued, "he won't give us anything," he said before looking at Elle, "what do you think?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I don't know," she said with a yawn, "not my problem."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Elle, at the moment, this is everyone's problem, so we need everyone to contribute an opinion, okay?" I sigh and shiver again, looking around the room for a blanket.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"But everyone is not contributing," she said flicking a magazine open, "and I am not everyone."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Then I guess we know your stance." I say as I turn towards the rest of the group, figuring out a plan.


LiamWb
William "Hastings" Norwood
He glared at Elle, "what the hell is with you?" He growled, "we've been freezing for nearly a month and we haven't got a peep from the cult and you just...want to shut up? Of all time too? After bossing everyone around and acting like you're better than everyone, you just want to go quiet?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"That sums it up," she said reading it, "and, by the way, I don't act like I'm better than you–I am better than you."


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Elle, you and me, outside the library, now." I say seriously with a grave tone as I stood up and walked outside of the library, waiting for you.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"It's like I'm in school and I'm being told to go to principal's office after mouthing off a teacher," she said with a yawn and followed Eliza.


Eliza Quest
Eliza Barnes
"Elle, what the hell are you thinking?! This isn't a time to be an arrogant smartass. You were chosen as part of this team for a reason. Hell, do you even have any idea what we're up against?" I ask, exasperated. "Are you going to let us die in vain, even poor Julian? Don't deny it, I've known for weeks about the two of you, and I'm not mad about that, what I am mad about is how you think you can get away with being arrogant instead of hard-work. Are you really so selfish that you would let all of us die and walk away? That's just selfish Elle. And are you ready to face the consequences that come with your decisions? Because that is what you're deciding as your fate." I sigh as I wait for your reply.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I've never claimed to be anything but selfish," she said with a smile, "and I'm anything with Julian. We're nothing to each other. We've talked. Nothing like you and Roger," she said with a snort, "and...what flowers do you want for funeral? How about poppies? Or roses? And, I've pulled my weight. Always have. Repeatedly. Try saying that to one of the others before saying it to me."


B
Julian Argent
He just examined the books cover as he heard her response. "Sounds boring." he said as he looked around as the others filled into the room, slightly annoy at how loud the room had just gotten.

ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She looked at Diana before looking at Eliza and spat on the ground, "absolutely nothing," she snarled, "I was just leaving–I'm done with this, done with every single one of you," she said and shoved past both of them and down to the foyer to grab her coat to leave.


DianaH
Diana Hollande
Diana looked at Eliza with a confused look before she turned on her heels and followed after Elle, not giving Eliza any chance to explain. "Elle what's going on?" Diana called from behind the girl as she made it down the stairs.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She turned to glare at her, which made most people back off instantly, "none of your business, go back to them," she said jerking her chin in the general direction of the library before slinking through the doors and onto the street and she brought the coat closer to her.


DianaH
Diana Hollande
Diana only stared after Elle, unsure if she should follow her or not. She really shouldn't be alone... The lunar duchess thought, walking out the door and grabbing a coat on the way out. "Your stuck with me... whether you like it or not." Diana voiced, walking up next to Elle and giving her a slight glare.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She whirled around to sneer at her, "go back inside, or I will kill you," she threatened, "I will get a knife and slit your throat. So go back inside. Where it is safe and warm," she said. Mentally she squirmed. She wanted to leave without a follower and make all of them hate her enough to not follow. But this one had to come at the end. She had a small window of opportunity and she intended to climb through it. Diana was wasting her time. "Just go back inside, will you?"


DianaH
Diana Hollande
Her glare softened as she heard Elle. "Elle... i don't know whats going on with you but you shouldn't be alone." Diana replied. "Especially with everything going on with the quest... So i am stay." She paused for a few seconds to let the words sink in. "Oh and if you ever threaten me again... i'll kill you" Diana finally said with a small smirk, hoping Elle would lighten up.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I'd like to see you try," she said rather haughtily as she curled her lip. Make her hate you. Make her hate you. Only way. She'll destroy you. You don't care. She stared at Diana, "I can take care of myself. I don't a need a babysitter and being alone is so much than being in company, especially with a princess like you."


DianaH
Diana Hollande
She kept a serious face while looking at Elle, only blinking a few times before she turned towards the house. Giving the impression that she was gonna head inside, Diana did the exact oposite. Hoping Elle had fallen for the trick, Diana turned quickly and grabbed her arm - twisting it behind Elle's back. To prove her point she pulled out a small knife she had secretly stashed and put it up to the other girls neck. "This princess can kick your ass." She said into Elle ear before letting her go and crossing her own arms. "Now... where are we going?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
The breath of relief was stamped out of her as the knife was pressed into her skin and the words were spoken and she rubbed the spot where the knife was. Elle couldn't help the thought entering into her mind that Diana should have just done it. "A brothel," she declared looking at her with a smile, "I got to make my money somehow, you can come, I guess? I suppose people would pay triple to get the both of us."


DianaH
Diana Hollande
She wasn't sure  if Elle was messing around or serious but, Diana was going to back down. "Fine... lead the way."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
Her face fell, "I would have thought hooking up with Liam every other night be enough, is he not good enough?" She asked rather sarcastically. "I don't want you around, Diana, I'm serious. Go away. I'll be back in an hour or so, anyway."


DianaH
Diana Hollande
"I've made it pretty clear that i'm not going... Plus hooking up with liam is tiresome, i need some time away anyways." Diana smirked as she played along with Elle's ideas.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Diana, please, go back inside," she pleaded with her and her face began to show some desperation, "I'm begging you. Go back inside and don't follow me. You'll be safe."


DianaH
Diana Hollande
The lunar duchess put her hand on Elle's shoulders and looked into her eyes. "Elle, i'm not sure whats going on with you but... i can't let you go alone." She responded, her hands still rested on the other girls shoulders. "I wont slow you down or get in your way so please just let me go."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
This is bad. This is very, very bad. She breathed silently for a moment, not moving Diana's fingers and wondered when on Earth did she...start to care. Care enough to try and keep Diana out of danger. "I'm not...I'm not worried about you getting in my way, I-" Don't let them know you're scared. "Where I'm going? It's dangerous for you. For anyone but me and I can't guarantee you'll come out alive."


DianaH
Diana Hollande
She moved her shoulders in a shrugging motion. "i didn't want to have to do this but, if you don't take me then i'll just tell the others you off doing something dangerous." Diana replied while watching Elle. "I'm sure a certain prince would more then gladly lock you in a room.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
Her jaw dropped and she closed it again, "okay, now that was just cruel," she grumbled before turning on her heel and storming through the snow, "better keep up, I won't look for you if you get lost."


DianaH
Diana Hollande
Diana slightly rolled her eyes. "Just led the way." She said as she follow Elle.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She huffed and soon enough, any familiar territory disappeared in the heavy sheet of snow as they weaved through streets and roads. Finally they reached a warehouse-the one she'd gone to see with Julian and stopped outside of it.


DianaH
Diana Hollande
Diana came to a stop right next to Elle, examining the building as she waited for Elle to speak up. "This is where you wanted to go?" The lunar duchess asked while turning her gaze over to the other female. "What's in there?" She asked.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She scuffed her foot on the ground and seemed to shrink as she looked at it. She didn't want to answer and, for the first time since she had arrived in the academy, seemed to actually be scared of whatever it was that was inside. "People I use to know," she replied, "people I don't really want to know again."


DianaH
Diana Hollande
Diana looked form the warehouse to Elle, looking back and forth for a few seconds before she finally let her eyes stay on Elle. Something was differnet, Elle almost seemed.... Scared. "Should we go in?" She asked, Thinking maybe Elle might change her mind.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"You can stay out here, if you want, I don't mind," she breathed out before snapping around to stare at her intensely, "but if you do come in, don't talk. Stay behind me and never, ever, make eye contact with anyone."


DianaH
Diana Hollande
Diana only nodded her head at Elle, Waiting for her to go in.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She sighed and rushed down to the door that was heavily graffitied. Knocking on it, she impatiently waited for someone to open it.


TMJSymbol
The Modern Janissaries
For a few minutes, nothing did happen but then something slid sideways on the door to show a pair of brown eyes, looking at them in suspicion, "you lost, little girls?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She sneered, "why don't you go get Linus before I break down the doors to castrate you."


TMJSymbol
The Modern Janissaries
"No Linus here," he growled. His voice was raspy, like he smoked a pack a day for the last decade, "go home."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"My name is Henrietta Emerson," she said leaning forward, "my father is mozart and I demand to see Linus."


TMJSymbol
The Modern Janissaries
The man was silent for a minute before it slid shut.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She breathed out and rocked back on her heels.


DianaH
Diana Hollande
Despite the seriousness of the situation, Diana couldn't help but Snicker. "Henrietta?" she said while looking at the back of Elle's head a smiling.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
Her face turned red and she scuffed her foot."My grams was traditional," she grumbled as an explanation. "and I went by Etta," she added on as an afterthought.


DianaH
Diana Hollande
"Whatever you say.... Henrietta." Diana said still smiling but, now looking at the door and waiting from the man to come back. "Who are we here to see anyways?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She forced herself not to snap at her for the name and replied, "a guy named Linus," she said in a dead panned voice but brushed over it, "he was my dad's protegee. He was something like an older brother when I was growing up."


DianaH
Diana Hollande
"Do you think they will let us in?" Diana asked, wondering why it was taking so long for the guy to come back. "I mean... how long has it been since you've seen him."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"The only reason he wouldn't is because he thinks I've come for revenge," she said tightly, "and it's only been two years."


TMJSymbol
The Modern Janissaries
As soon as she finished her words the door swung open and a storm of dust brushed onto the man, supposedly the same one as before, and eyed them. "Only you," he grunted, "not the other one."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Sorry, darling," she said and her words were soaked in a British accent, "we're a package deal."


TMJSymbol
The Modern Janissaries
"Who is she?" He grunted.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She took a step backwards and slipped her hand into Diana's and gripped it tightly. Raising it up, she shook it, "we're lovers," she said and pressed her lips onto Diana's knuckles, "I don't exactly trust any of you to not mess with her whilst I'm gone. Linus will understand, I'm sure."


DianaH
Diana Hollande
Diana wasn't a stranger to lying and just went along with Elle. Diana grabbed Elle's hand with both of hers and smiled at the man, waiting to hear his responce.


TMJSymbol
The Modern Janissaries
He stared at them for a moment before grunting and stepped aside for them to pass, "whatever," he grumbled.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She let out a small sigh of relief and forced herself not to run as she entered the premises and dragged Diana along with her, not daring to let go of her hand. Though she'd never admit this to anyone, especially at that moment, speaking to Linus terrified her and everything inside of her screamed at her to turn on her heel and get out. Holding Diana's hand? Not only did it give people reason not to touch her, and to stay far away, but it also gave Elle an anchor. An anchor that she'd rather cut out her tongue than confess to. The place was indeed a factory and after a small hallway with barren hooks and lockers, they were brought into a large space that had couches, beds, tvs and a pool table thrown into it. The lights barely lit anything and she could only just see the outlines of the people in there and the faces of the people who were sitting directly underneath one of the lights. There must have been nearly fifty people, she guessed, and she knew that they were all young. No older than twenty five. She could feel their eyes pressing into her and, after passing underneath a lamp, the murmurs of voices halted to a stop. Elle's nails dug into Diana without meaning too. Eventually, they went up a flight of stairs and headed to a cubicle that was most likely once an office that overlooked the workers. The lights were much better up here and the two guards, heavily armed, were easily visible. As they reached the door, one of them leant over with a grin, "well, if it isn't Mozart's daughter. Didn't think I'd see you in this miserable place." Elle gave him a small smile and her nails relaxed slightly, only slightly, but was brushed into the office before she could reply.


DianaH
Diana Hollande
Just like Elle had instructed earlier, Diana kept her head down - not looking directly at anyone but letting her eye's wander around the room. It seemed strange to Diana that the room feel silent when everyone spotted Elle but, now wasn't exactly the time to ask her about it. With Elle digging her nails into her hand, The lunar duchess slightly wince but, she didn't let go - should could tell that visiting this Linus guy scared her. Upon entering the office, Diana looked around and remained silent.


TMJSymbol
The Modern Janissaries
A man, about twenty, stood behind a metal table, scattered with dents and rust. Three chairs were positioned around the table and another two was pushed to the side of the wall. There might have been some sort of personal belongings in the room as the walls, covered in dust, had faint rectangles slightly cleaner. It hinted that maybe a poster there. The window above the man was boarded shut. The only thing on the table was a stack of papers. The man might have been handsome if it wasn't for a long scar running down the side of his face, pulling up a side of his lip up into a permanent sneer. "Etta," he whispered, "I didn't think you'd come back."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She shifted and glanced behind her shoulder as the door was shut. She then positioned herself to stand slightly in front of Diana, "I haven't come back. I'm here for information."


TMJSymbol
The Modern Janissaries
"Information?" He asked slowly, "not one to come crawling," he said before jerking his head to Diana, "who's she?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"A..." she trailed off before mentally kicking herself, "a friend," she said, "you can say whatever you want with her in here and she's not leaving, so I'd rather get past the whole "kick her out" part."
