Jumping was a strange thing, to be certain. Made even stranger in that it was completely inconspicuous. No crackling lightning or glowing vortexes involved. Xavier merely plopped into existence in the middle of a thick bush only feet from shore. He picked himself up, brushing the sand off of his thin white shirt, blocking the sunlight with his hand. No, the only thing conspicuous about their travels- "Xavier, over here! What took you so long?" Is her. Xavier sighed. He waited patiently for the approaching figure. It was rather hard to mistake her for anyone else. She wore a large Victorian-era dress whose color seemed to change whenever you weren't looking and was constantly waving around a large old-timey umbrella (not old enough to match her ridiculous dress mind you, but old enough). She topped it off with a small silk bonnet embroidered with flower patterning (or was it birds?), which was a shame, because as much as Xavier hated giving her compliments, her long white hair really was quite pretty. Yes, Kalafina stuck out like a sore thumb wherever they went. "Would you mind changing into something else for once? You look ridiculous." Xavier called to her. "Well maybe you just look too ordinary. You ever think of it like that?" He sighed. Angry, or glad, happy or sad, she was always like this. Deciding to ignore it, he stuck his thumb out to the stark white beach house. "We should check it out. Maybe they have some supplies they'd be willing to trade for." She nodded in agreement. The walk to the house was short, offering little time to take in the remarkable view. Xavier drank in the scenery, every last detail. It was stunning. It reminded him of a trip he'd taken as a child- Right. He shook the thought out of his head, but it clung on hard. So he turned to his companion to shake it off. Kalafina walked in a sort of regal way befitting her dress. No matter what the situation, she never seemed to lose that air of calm. It was something about her that both infuriated him and yet invoked a sense of admiration. There were a lot of things about her like that. "It doesn't look like anyone's home." Now that Xavier took a better look, he saw it too. The lights were all out and the doors all shut. Unusual for a beach house, especially in the middle of summer. Or at least he thought it to be, judging by the heat and cloying humidity. The door was plain, minimalist. Xavier twisted the knob, jiggling it, but the lock remained steadfast. No good. He motioned to her, and they braced themselves against the door. "On three. One, tow-" "THREE!" They slammed into the door. It shook but did not falter. "And again!" Their efforts were finally rewarded with that brilliant cracking sound as the door gave way and they half-ran half-stumbled into the house.

Justin paid the taxi man a little more money than needed and got out of the taxi. He waved at it as it drove away. He then looked up at...something. "Hey, Landras," he thought, Can you dig the invitation out of my backpack?"' "Sure," she responded back. She used a hand to unzipped the largest pocket in Justin's blue backpack, and took out a piece of paper, a spoon, and a few cup of yogurt. She handed the invitation to him, and then started gorging into one of the cups by stabbing through the foil wrapper and digging up strawberry goodness. "Yummy! I'm starving!" "Just help me find the house," Justin said bored and blankely, as he turned his head. The beach was very long.

Justin looked down on the sand-covered pavement as he walked towards the house. He could already feel the sand dirting his sandals. "I hope there is air-conditioning," he thought. The heat was sweltering.

Landras consumed the last cup of yogurt she pulled out of Justin's backpack, shoving the cup itself down her throat. She looked down at Justin, who just arrived at the front door. He was sixteen years old, had brown hair, was shorter than average and had a lanky frame. He wore a blue t-shirt, short jeans, and a black necklace with a single black pearl. If she didn't know him, she would dismiss him as a timid, harmless boy. Quite the opposite. Well, the latter was. "It's open," Justin thought, turning her head towards her, "Should I go in?" "Of course," Landras said, reaching for his backpack to pull out some more. "Don't," Justin thought, stepping forwards, "I don't want anyone finding out about you." "All right," Landras said, "But I'm heading towards the frige." Justin pushed the door all the way open. EDIT: My writing is too plain compare to yours. I'm not using my character's five senses enough. Got to add more detail.

Justin opened the door and looked saw a woman in front of him. She looked between her 40s and 60s, but still beautiful disregarding her age. "S-sorry if this is the wrong address," Justin said as he held up the invitation, "But w- I got this in the mail inviting me to this house, and the door was open..." he let it trailed off. He heard Landras cackling. And he noticed that more people were in the room.
OOC: Another note: Landras is invisable to anyone who didn't touch the Death Note that Justin currently have hidden in a secret pocket somewhere on his person. So if your character gives indication that he/she sees Landras, well...

Meanwhile, Landras was in the kitchen. "Oh, here's a fridge!" she thought. The Shinigami then opened the door and searched for some yogurt, perferbly apple yogurt, since the last store Justin went to didn't have any. She liked apples.
Above the Earth, out of sight, there was a small meteor. It would land that night near the house.
OOC: I'll try to keep OOC to a mim, but I like to use this. The meteor is just a small plot hook that you can use once things get rolling. You may use it any way you want, or just let it miss and go into the ocean.
