Joshua watched and listened to Cream as she spoke. He knew right away that he had touched a nerve. It was almost a talent of his at this point. Then again, speaking his mind and not holding back was probably one of his best and worst points. The only real downside was that it usually made him universally hated. He had accepted that this point in his life.
When Cream finished and ran off, he didn't bother to try and stop her. He just watched her as she ran away from him. He just watched as she ran into the distance and sighed once she was out of sight. He looked down at his deck and shook his head before looking back out at her retreating figure.
"I can't have faith in a deck I didn't make. Most of the cards aren't in there by my choice at this point. You can only have faith in a deck once you actually put your heart in it and build it as you want it. After all, only then is it truly 'your deck'." He said to the wind
In the time that passed, he attended his classes and participated in any mandatory events and/or duels. He also challenged some other duelists and occasionally got challenged himself. He stayed his usual self for a while but eventually he just got kind of... quiet. He began rarely talking during duels and his focus faltered, resulting in his wracking up more losses then win. Even Joshua himself didn't what was bothering him. It frustrated him and made him slightly irate, but he tried to stay cheerful in front of the few he could call friends.
Right now, he was wondering the school and happened to be passing by where Ben was teaching several members of his dorm. He was about to turn away when he spotted someone approaching Ben. He quickly recognized said person as Cream and he quickly changed his plans. He ducked out of sight but kept an eye on the pair incase it looked like Ben challenged Cream to a duel or the other way around.
Amelia's school life was rather plain. She did her classes and events like any other student but outside of those, she didn't go out of her way to duel. She did accept the occasional challenge, so long as the opponent wasn't a member of the Dark Dorm, and she achieved mixed results depending on how long she could hold up her defenses.
Right now, she was in the card shop, debating on whether or not it was worth her time buying single Gustos or packs. Since they took Extra Deck monsters off the shelves, making them impossible for single purchases, packs seemed more tempting. However, she was more likely to get cards she didn't need, especially since the packs that contained Gustos tended to support at least five other decks. So her chances of getting a Gusto monster from them was already low. The chances of getting a good one or a Daigusto were practically none unless she bought in bulk and even then, it was unlikely. But if she did buy packs, she might be able to trade with other people. Maybe.
She just groaned to as she rested her head on a table, unsure of what to do. The stress of the upcoming dorm exams was not good for her heart.
