Sophiel Sargute & Ty Varen

Train Intermission


Just when she thought that she had the peace and quiet that she so desperately needed, fate decided otherwise as she heard the sound of Ty’s voice. She groaned into her arms, was he dense? She clearly didn’t want to talk to him right now, especially what happened a couple of minutes ago. Regaining her composure, she got up and turned to look at Ty. “That’s fine, it’s better if I heard from personal experience rather from a book,” She straightened her clothes and sleeves.

She gave Mandi an eye before redirecting her focus back onto Ty. “Tell me what it's like living in the village. Any small things, any big thing, anything will be fine.” She said with a proper smile. Hopefully as Ty would tell her of his life they would become better friends, and to understand what kind of life that her sister might have lived outside of the city.

Ty couldn’t help but snicker at Mandi’s little pet name. “Pff… Sophy-Trophy…” But he quickly put his hands up defensively. “Don’t worry, I’d never call you that,” he said quickly before he got punched again. However, it seemed like Soph had calmed down a bit from Mandi’s teasing. Ty leaned back in his seat, stretching his legs out under the table and thought about his hometown. “Hmm… Well, I guess the biggest difference between living in the city and my village is that out there everybody knows each other. You can walk through the city and see a hundred new faces in one day, but back home it’s weird if you see someone you don’t know. It’s like, even though our houses are farther apart, everyone feels closer, you know?”

Ty stretched and then rested his hands on the table, looking at Sophiel as he continued. “And believe it or not, money isn’t really worth all that much where I’m from. Everyone in the village has their job and pitches in to get through the winter. You just do the work that needs doing when it needs doing. Only the merchants trade for money so they can bring back stuff from the cities. My family was in charge of hunting and bringing meat for the village.”

He went on for a bit about the hunting excursions he went on with his family, but didn’t dwell on them for too long. “How about you, Soph? Did you live in a big ol’ mansion or something? What’s that like?”

Sophiel’s eyes burned into Ty’s skull as he mentioned that accursed name that Mandi had made up a few moments ago. Her gauntlets were drawn, but she restrained herself from punching Ty in the face as he made a promise not to call her that. Leaning back into her seat with her hands on her lap, she listened to Ty’s story. “Is that so?” She listened with interest. A village was like a tight knit community, so she wasn’t surprised on the part that they mostly knew each other. Though, she didn’t know what to weigh on if the relationships between a community in a city and a village were the same.

Though she was quite surprised at what Ty said next. “Your village doesn’t use money?” Sophiel said, a little shocked at that prospect. She would expect that there’d be some shops that would require something in exchange, in most cases money. To hear that the village would work together and help each other out was a little strange to her. “I see, that’s indeed very surprising to hear.” Perhaps, her sister was living quite comfortably. Living in a village didn’t seem too bad if everyone was willing to contribute to everyone's survival.

She attentively listened until Ty asked a question of his own. Her life within the city. “Mine? Well it wasn’t that special.” She paused before continuing, “Well wasn’t special for me perhaps.” She corrected herself. “My family wasn’t rich enough like Ms. Bastien’s, so I didn’t live in a mansion, but my family was well off enough to own a big house.” Sophiel thought about her life a little bit more before continuing. “You know how we’ve lived in a dorm in the past several weeks, right? It’s sort of like that but better. The air condition is better, the walls didn’t have cracks, and it wasn’t littered with pests.” She said.

“Aside from that, it’s not really that different from my family’s house.” Sophiel avoided telling Ty about her family life. Although he did bring his family up, she was going to neglect telling him about hers. He didn’t ask, so it didn’t hurt.

Ty listened eagerly as Sophiel explained what city life was like. She seemed pretty modest about it, and she wasn’t one of the super-rich people, but still sounded like she lived a comfortable life. “That’s pretty neat,” Ty said. “I remember when I first walked into Avalice. I couldn’t believe that I had so much space for myself. My first year here, it took a while to adjust to just how big everything was.” He chuckled. “If I went back home now…” He paused and looked out the window at the scenery rushing by. His smile wavered for a moment. “It’d probably be pretty different, but I think I like it better here anyway.” He beamed at Sophiel and then waved down a staff member.

“Hey, can I get the biggest steak you have. And a tall glass of exotic fruit juice. Just pick the fruit with the weirdest name.” Yes, Ty had breakfast. Yes, he ate plenty. But he was not about to pass up an opportunity for a free steak. “So, what made you decide to become a hero? Seems like it’s a lot more popular than I thought when I enrolled.”

“Is that so? That's surprising, don’t you miss it being back in your village? After you have family back there,” Sophiel asked, unaware that she may have poked into a sensitive subject. “Though if you’re happy here, then who’d I be to stop you,” She said. Ignoring that beaming look that Ty shot at her, why was he doing that, she looked towards the waiter and decided to order a little something for herself. “I’ll have some water.” She said before turning back to Ty.

She was slightly worried when she heard Ty was ordering the ‘biggest’ steak within the train. Hopefully Ty had table manners, the last thing she needed was to change out to her extra set of clothes. “Why did I become a hero? I’m mainly doing it for my family, but…” She paused for a second to think about it. “I… I want to arrest the criminals who would threaten anyone's life.” While she was in such confidence, if one listened clearly there was a little bit of uncertainty within it. “How about you?”

“I mean, sometimes I miss it,” Ty said, “but, well…” He rubbed his arm. “My parents were kinda mad when I left. Still, I’m glad I came here. All my life I was always just another one of my dad’s kids. A scrawny one at that. Anything I could do, at least one of my siblings could do better. Heroes are people who do things that nobody else can. That’s why I wanna become one. I wanna become my own person. Probably sounds weird, but I don’t regret it. Once I figure this magic stuff out and make it to the top, I can go back home and show them it was all worth something.”
The waiter brought out his steak and some guava juice, as well as Sophiel’s water. Ty immediately began digging in. At least he knew how to use a fork and knife. He wasn’t completely uncivilized. “Mmm, sure you don’t wanna order any food? This is cooked perfectly!”

So, Ty didn’t have a great relationship with his parents nor his siblings. She shouldn’t have been surprised, but she was a little saddened by it. A bond between siblings and parents was the most precious one. There was no other bond that could be established from blood. She had read that from a book once. “I see, my apologies, I didn’t mean to be insensitive.” Staying silent for a moment, she decided to change the topic. “Well, I hope your time here will bear some fruits. Avalice is one of the best schools to become a hero of legend. I have no doubt you’ll become one.”

Her eyes landed onto the waiter as he brought them their order. Taking the water, she could only hear the disturbing sounds of Ty viciously attacking his steak. While he had the decency to eat the steak with a fork and knife, they way he was eating… “Please, chew slower. You might choke, Ty,” She said, shaking her head. She was glad that she only ordered water. “I think I’m good.” Sophiel finally said before looking at her clothes. There were going to be a lot of food stains that needed to be cleaned out when she returned back to the dorms.

Ty waved his hand dismissively at Sophiel’s apology. “Don’t worry about it, Soph. None of that crappy stuff is on you. Nothing you need to apologize for.” He paused in his voracious consumption when Soph continued, though. She had no doubt he’d become one? He swallowed his bite of food and wiped his mouth, looking unsure of what he just heard. Was she just being polite, or did she actually mean it? It was hard to tell sometimes with city folk. “Thanks,” he said at last. “At least one person believes in me.” He relented to Soph’s request and slowed down eating his steak. “Don’t want me to choke, huh? So you do care.” He chuckled, unable to resist a small tease. Surely he could get away with something that small without getting punched.

Shortly afterwards, Ty was placed into a head lock.
Also should we also slow down a little? A few us still haven't responded.
Oh my god.
Sophiel about to kill everyone around her.
There we go, please @ me if I missed anything.
Sophiel Sargute


"Is that so?" Sophiel replied. What was it like to live within a village? From what she had currently seen from Ty, it seemed like he wasn't raised with proper manners, in terms of living in the city, and was rather a little ignorant with technology. She'd need to ask Ty later over his experiences in living in his village. She'd like to call it... research. After all, her runaway sister was now living somewhere beyond the city. While she could care less if she was okay or not, she was curious on how was she living her life. "If you have time later, can you tell me more what's it like to live in your hometown?"

She also agreed with Kiara, it would seem like they had similar thoughts. "Agreed, they would most likely prove troublesome to capture." Thankfully, Sophiel knew some moves that would be able to hinder their movements. It might be a little painful for them, but at least they would be apprehrended.

Then, Sophiel sensed a disturbance in the force. Turning around, she saw Mandi walking down to the station to where they were. "Ah, Good Morning, Mandi," She greeted with the same polite tone she greeted with everyone else. Sighing at Mandi's flattery over her clothes, she opted to not respond to it. She also took a few steps away from Mandi in response to her flighty steps. As much as she would tolerate Mandi's eccentric personality, whatever she was going to do by getting close to her while others were around was prohibited. It'd be straight down embarrassing if out of nowhere she was receiving a hug from Mandi. "It seems like you're excited about the mission," She commented about Mandi's exuberance.

She greeted Caelum with the same "Good Morning, ______," and shook her head without turning around to look at Mandi. "Ty, you don't have to respond to that question." With another sigh of exasperation, she looked towards the orange haired boy. "Mandi's just trying to-"

I think, I'll go with Soph. She's the cutest."

Sophiel opened her mouth and closed it, opened it again, and closed it. It took a good few seconds for her to process what Ty said before flushing over the comment and punching him in the shoulder, with a little more force than what she would have liked. "Ty! You could have just said that you didn't prefer anyone, or you liked us all, or any other neutral respond!" She scolded with flushed cheeks. In comparison, to Mandi, she didn't mind them all too much. With the tone Mandi usually said it, it usually came off as slightly serious and non-serious. But with Ty? The pure genuinity of that statement was a little much. This shook her off so much that she didn't greet Ankaa as she showed up at the station.

With all of her composure gone, she could only wave at Yvain and glared at Mandi. "Be quiet, Mandi!" With that she entered inside the cart, passing by her professor due to being unable him to greet him properly. She couldn't muster the inner model student within her to even try and figure out where in the world were Sekhandur, Kress, and Alberta were. Going over to a window seat, she plopped herself down onto it and opted to stare outside the cart to distract herself from the 'compliment' that Ty gave her. "Why..." She muttered to herself as she buried herself in her arms.

That was probably the first time she called cute... Excluding the times Mandi has called her cute or anything remotely similar to it. Though, it was probably the first time she was described as cute by a boy. Groaning from eternal suffering and embarrassment, she decided to drive off these thoughts by looking at the cart. They were rather fortunate being able to ride such a luxurious cart. She would have doubted her predecessors before her would have been able to ride the cart, let alone ordering beverages for free.

Might take me a bit because I have a lot to respond too.
Local small boy gets terrorized by crazy plant lady.

Edit: Also you might have forgotten that Kiara was called, not Sophiel.
"Perhaps, Ty lived in the more rural parts of the city?"

Lol. The city. Good one. Now to think about how Ty will meet Mandi's challenge.


Yeah, I had a brain fart so I typed in city. Was I supposed to use country?
Sophiel Sargute


Her practice was interrupted when she heard someone call her name, or rather a nickname. Looking towards the origin of the sound, she spotted a person with orange hair. Ty, she recognized as he came closer. They hadn't interacted that much from the past few weeks aside from simple hellos, or goodbyes. "Good Morning, Ty," She greeted with a smile. She admittedly was surprised that Ty would be one of the first, aside from her, out of her classmates to arrive at the station. It was mostly from the troublesome attitude that he had exhibited on the first day. Perhaps, she should quickly judge a book by its cover.

"To say that he hates us is a bit much, Ty," Sophiel said after she shook her head. "While his personality leaves much to be desired, he is a good professor in my opinion." She agreed with Ty in his sentiment. He didn't seem to care about them that much aside from the fact that they were students. He took his job more professionally instead of personally, if that made sense. It would be nice if he was a little nicer, but you can't have everything in the world. Sophiel attention shifted as Ty's awe of the train made her turn to look at the train. "You haven't been on a train before?" Sophiel asked. It was a little strange, for her, to see someone be excited for a train. Perhaps, Ty lived in the more rural parts of the countryside?

Upon hearing a familiar voice, she looked towards Kiara. "Oh, Good morning, Kiara," She greeted with a smile. Thankfully, she wasn't greeted by the painful feeling that plagued her during the match between her and Kiara. However, she frowned when she heard that good news from Kiara about her tome. "Is that so, again I apologize for that." Sophiel said, emphasizing it with a bow. Straightening her posture back up, she looked Kiara in the eye, "Though if you need any help, please tell me." Sophiel still felt guilty over breaking her tome. Even if it was fixed, she still wanted to amend things.

“Regardless of that, what are your opinions on the mission?” She asked, deciding to make a conversation while they awaited for their classmates and professor to come. While she knew Ty was excited for the mission, she wandered if he felt anything aside from that. She also wanted Kiara’s opinion to hopefully get a better opinion so that she could focus on that aspect rather than being envious. "In my opinion, I'm surprised we were assigned this mission. Shouldn't this type of mission belong to a higher authority in the academy?"
