The Gate of Lords:

okay byeeeee
"That you are." Billie smirked at him again, but her smile dropped as she dispelled her breath as an icy vapour for- what, the sixth or seventh time?

"Sometimes it can be for the better. Not living just to survive that is. Some people can get pretty messed up that way." She kept her focus on the frozen bullet as she spoke.

"You had a point." Vann put down the bullet and, for the seventh time, formed another one. "I might've become someone, no, something more reckless if I stayed. Then again, it wouldn't be so bad."

"I never asked you this, but how do you got into the academy?" Vann asked.

okay byeeeee
"Hm?" Billie mulled the question over for a second. "Well, when I was a tyke I was dared by a couple of my pals to sneak into the academy, and to bring back something from one of the Master's rooms to prove I did it. I wasn't one to step down from a challenge but unfortunately Gregory was still awake when I snuck into his pad."

She paused briefly to freeze the bullet. "Instead of reporting me he said he was impressed with my 'abilities' and rattled off some stuff about how my 'innate yet untapped magic' was unnaturally high. Then I was put through the same mental process as everyone else and whaddyaknow, turned out I was Orbkeeper material."

The most convincing lies were based on half-truths, and while some elements of her story weren't wrong most of it was just a big fib.

"You're pretty lucky to be spotted by Master Gregory. If one of the other two Masters found you instead, you might've developed a more cynical view of the academy." Vann joked. He truthfully believed her story, although he took it with a grain of salt, remembering how this was still Billie who he was talking to.

Letting down the seventh bullet and materializing the eighth, Vann continued to talk, "It's nice to be taught by Master Gregory, being lax and all. But when you need to get better fast, the harsh way, no one can beat Master Gratso. I guess in a way, he is a demon."

"What I'm actually doing... well that would take a while to explain, possibly. Why I'm doing it is another manner altogether... I'm laying the magical framework for a flying artifact. Dunno if I should go with the traditional broom or maybe a staff would look better" says Megan as she manipulates the crystal with one hand and writes down on a journal with the other one.

However, she promptly stops her work and turns back to look at Lionel, lifting her goggles to let them rest a bit over her forehead "Second question?"

Billie chuckled. "You're right about that. If he even knew about a quarter of the stuff I get up to I'd've been chucked out of here months ago."

"Still, he did teach me this, " she quickly used her breath magic again, "and a bunch of other stuff, so I guess I should be grateful. Hopefully he doesn't know yet that his safe was opened by us and not that demon."

"Halfway done", Vann said in his mind as he repeating the cycle of letting down and forming a bullet for the ninth time.

"I'm actually disappointed by the fact that Master Gratso has that poem in the first place. I don't exactly know, but it's unlike him to believe in things like that. I thought his view more realistic than what that fact would suggest." Vann said.

Lionel looked Megan square in the eyes.

"Why didn't you fight with us today? Against the demon, I mean... Why didn't you join in?"
I'm nobody, who are you? Are you nobody too?

Bring up the magic. Breathe out. Freeze. "Well, there's a lot of people who believe in weird things even if their views are pretty realistic otherwise. I'm still convinced ghosts aren't completely made up for example." Billie admitted

"I saw no reason to" replied Megan honestly as she picked up her gem, examined it a little and then stored it away in a drawer "I was observing the battle, seeing how the creature moved, how our fellow students engaged it and eventually neutralized it. The killed it without any casualties or severe injuries. Thus you didn't see me step into the fight. Had a critical moment happened when unless I moved one of them would be crippled, critically hurt or dead then you would have seen me fight"

"Well then, shall we move?" Andel said as he began to walk at a moderate pace. His bow rattled slightly on his back as he moves but the sound is almost negligable to Andel's ears since he has heard it for so long. "I suppose the most pressing thing we could discuss is the matter with the demon, do any of you have the slightest clue how it could have gotten in? Also, do you think the 'prophecy' is the reason it came or something else?" Andel was genuinely curious as he inquired.

Personally he had no faith in the prophecy as it was called. People who thought solely of the future when there were much more present problems Andel believed were foolish. He figured that some outside opinions might just help him see from a different perspective rather than his own nad expanding his field of view was only a good thing.

Lionel nodded softly.

"I guess I understand... But... It's still our duty to fight them. We have to..."

He stared at Megan.

"...Right?"

Khaine started walking alongside Andel. He didn't really notice the rattling of Andels bow; he had grown too used to the tapping of his axes for it to be even a minor annoyance. When Andel finished asking his questions, Khaine said "I don't have a clue how it got in, but I doubt that that was what it came for; at least, that wasn't all it had come for. One would think that if it was truly terrible for that 'prophecy' to fall into demon hands, Master Gratso of all people would have had more defenses for it."

Khaine thought that the whole 'prophecy' thing was just a load of bunk, but he had already made that clear earlier. There wasn't any reason to bring that argument up again.

"We don't have to. We choose to fight them. Each of us knows why we make that choice, but it's one we do every encounter. This time I chose not to fight" says Megan as she rises from her seat "If there's a reason for you not to fight them then don't. Don't believe that it's something like... a God given duty that you must accomplish"

"You have a point." Vann nodded, before letting down the ninth bullet. He used his hands to tidy the nine bullets, putting them in a row all facing the same direction. "It was just like how there are people who doesn't believe in ghosts but are still afraid of them." Continuing, he formed the tenth, the water in the flask were visibly running out, but should be enough for the final six.

Vann remembered something, and stared at Billie's face. A small, but slowly healing scratch was visible upon it. Vann sighed, "Billie, you were really reckless back there against the demon. What if the wound you got turned out to be permanent? You're a girl, you know?" He said in a bothered tone.

okay byeeeee
"Dude, I'm always reckless." Billie replied cheerily, her breath magic starting to take a little longer as they continued with the menial work. "What am I supposed to do, act all prim and proper when kicking butt? That sucks all the fun out of-"

"Hey, wait a minute." She narrowed her eyes and then leaned towards Vann. "What does me being a girl have to do with anything?"

Vann let down the eleventh bullet, noticeably slower than the previous ten, "Isn't it obvious, being a girl, you had an appearance to maintain." Vann said. "If you keep up that degree of recklessness, you're not going to get a boyfriend." Vann smirked sheepishly.

He then began forming the twelfth bullet, and then suspending it, waiting for Billie to freeze it.

okay byeeeee
"Pfft. If I like some boy and he can't handle a few battle scars then I am not gonna want to date him." Besides which Billie already had about a half dozen under her clothes from back before she'd learnt to take care of herself. One measly scratch was nothing compared to them.

She froze the next bullet, resisting the temptation to flick it at Vann. Instead she leaned forward even more, a slightly mischievous glint in her eye. "Would you mind if I got a couple of scars?"

"Oi, you're sprouting a bad omen there." Vann said, backing off slightly. Again, the process of letting down and forming was repeated once more for the thirteenth bullet. "But to answer the question..." his sentence trailed off slightly.

Vann scratched his cheek, "I guess not. You did choose to be an orbkeeper, and you should know the risks involved. I can't do anything about that, so no, I won't mind. It would be better if you don't get any in the near future."

Phoebus had just now noticed that he wasn't the only orbkeeper who kept weapons on their person. Khaine was wearing axes while Andel held a bow that rattled against his back. It seemed that neither of them were quite ready to believe in poems that Phoebus suspected to have some importance.

"Even if it wasn't much, why go to the trouble of locking a simple poem away in a safe? Again, not much, considering what we're dealing with, but way more security than any poem would ever need. In my opinion, even if the demon wasn't primarily looking for the poem, I'm betting that poem will become important someday. Although one must wonder why Master Gratso doesn't just make copies of it..."

"Gratso is, for better or worse, a very cautious man. Likely he thinks the poem to be of importance and refuses to let others see it. Either way I can't imagine that a demon would desire a poem, even one that speaks of the future. Having said that, the true issue is how it got in. I think after the trials I might do a closer look around for potential weaknesses." Andel said as he continued his walk down a hallway. He was headed back toward the library though he was not actually going to enter it was more due to muscle memory.

He looked at the other two as he walked. Khaine seemed to hold little regard for the poem and its suppose prophecy while Phoebus was contemplating it. Intereting though Andel personally was closer to Khaine's disbelief than Phoebus's potential belief. At least that was the idea he got from all that he had heard them say so far. Absently Andel rolled his orb in his right hand.

"Hmm..." Billie leaned back after she froze the next bullet for him. "I've already got a bunch from the past, so I think a few from the future are pretty inevitable."

She then shrugged with a small grin on her face. "But if you're that worried about me getting them then I guess I can handle being a little more careful. Just so long as you don't get any either."

"I don't do the "god" thing... But that thing was dangerous, and it had to be stopped as fast as possible. And the rest are probably just the same, if not worse. Stronger, smarter, nastier..."

Lionel looked away.

"What are we, if we don't make that stand? Isn't that what the orbs are for?"

Allosaurushat.
A chill came over the section of the academy the demon had attacked, and a bizarre lifeforce, twisted and corrupt, appeared besides the corpse of the demon.

Briefly, a figure looked down at the remains of the birdlike demon. For a few seconds, it didn't move, merely staring at the lifeless heap. Then, cautiously, the figure bent down and touched the demon.

A cold breeze rippled through a small area, passing straight through the walls. After a moment of nothing else happening, black. horns replaced the ones that had vanished They were made of many small tendrils of shadow, and the injuries the demon had suffered elsewhere were also covered by these. Larger ones burst from the skin seconds later, wrapping around the smaller ones and squeezing together. When all was done, the injuries and the horns were solid black, not even shining in the moonlight.

The creature paused to look down on the demon, but it showed no sign of waking up, merely groaning slightly. Even the black marks were changing, becoming like the wounded areas were before the injury had happened.

Nodding slightly, the figure touched the demon again, vanishing completely within seconds. The cold feeling's range shrunk, eventually disappearing into the demon. With that, all was again still in the room.

"Well... I think I can manage that." Vann said, preparing the fourteenth bullet. "Scars of conflict are kind of an indicator of how much you've been through, so I understand if you don't mind getting them. But I'm trying not to from the beginning; I guess you can call me a perfectionist." Vann blushed slightly. He honestly hadn't expected that he could convince Billie at all regarding this 'don't get scars' matter.

"A-anyway, we're nearly done." Vann reminded. He honestly hadn't noticed it until he counted the bullets lying on the table.
