A collab between @Strange Rodent and @PureHeroine

Up stairs, around corners, through the occasional door, Brynn was hurtling. She had a key in one hand, and a garbage bag in the other. Her breathing was heavy, her legs pained, and she had a stitch, but competition was competition, and must not be ignored. Especially when it’s her sister that she’s competing with.

The top of a door peaked over the last step. A few more stairs, and the number 192 revealed itself. She tossed the bag at the door, seconds before she crested the stairs. Footsteps crashed around the exceptionally grey hall as she ran the home stretch, past the unopened elevators, and straight into the door.

The elevator dinged, and screeched open. ”Beat ya!” she called, breathing heavily.

--Previously--


Seconds after exiting the car, Brynn had taken off in a sprint towards the apartment building. Sierra watched in mild amusement as her sister rather childishly hurled herself through the doors, and from there, up the several flights of stairs. These actions came as no surprise to her however, because she knew how competitive the other woman could be. Rather than following after her, Sierra instead opted for taking the elevator, like any rational person would, especially when carrying a heavy box like she was.

The task of pushing the button to call the elevator down was a bit of a hassle with both of her arms full, but she quickly solved that problem by propping one half of the box on her thigh, with her foot braced against the wall for balance. It wasn't the most comfortable position, but she only had to hold it for a few seconds. Once the button was pushed, she could return to holding the box securely with both arms.

Moments later the elevator would arrive on the ground floor, and the doors would open allowing her to step inside. The ride in the elevator was rather short, but relatively pleasant. She could only imagine how tiring it would have been carrying the box up the stairs, especially if she had done so in the same maniacal fashion Brynn had. She had to admit though, it was nice to see her sister so excited.

Soon enough the elevator would stop and the doors would screech open once again. Shortly after that she would hear her sister call out in triumph from the doorway of their new apartment. "Yes, you won. But at what cost? You know we still have more stuff to carry up, right?" The older woman commented in passing as she walked a few steps further into the apartment, before finally placing the box on the ground.

”That sounds like loser talk,” Brynn said with a smirk. She lightly kicked at the box that Sierra had brought up, saying ”How many more are there?”
She was definitely hoping Sierra would say “none”, but there was more. Oh was there more. And after the boxes, there was furniture. She was happy that her sister669933 got a promotion, and happy that they could afford to move, but the actual act of moving was one hell of a bitch.

"Hey, be careful! Unless you want to be eating out of your hands!" Sierra growled, albeit softly. The box Brynn kicked had all of their dishes and cutlery in it, which were rather fragile. She didn't fancy having to replace them, so she decided to pick the box up and take it to the kitchen to place on the counter, where it would be safe from her brat of a sister.

"Lots. Now let's get going, I don't want to still be moving things in while it's dark." With that, Sierra marched her way out of the apartment and back to the elevator. Their last apartment didn't have a functioning elevator, so she'd be damned if she wasn't going to take full advantage of this one.

”Hey!” Brynn called after her sister, ”It's not like we wrapped them up for nothing, and I didn't even kick it hard!”

She hurried after her sister, and only just made it into the elevator. A second longer, and she would've had to wait or take the stairs again. ”Good thing I made it, or you'd have lost again.”

Sierra was ready to reach out the stop the elevator doors from closing to make sure Brynn could get on, but her sister managed to get there just in time. "Yes, how fortunate. Any more winning from you and I would have to do all the moving myself." Sierra quipped, referring to how out of breath Brynn had been earlier.

”No, I could do that all day,” Brynn said, trying to control her breathing. She couldn't do it all day. ”And moving is the loser’s prize anyway.”

It was obvious to her that Brynn was lying, but knowing she would just continue to deny it, Sierra didn't say anything more; least she encourage her sister to try and prove it. Before she knew it they were back on the ground floor anyway. As soon as the doors open, she began walking at a brisk pace towards the car, eager to get the moving done as quickly as possible.

--After the move--


By the time they had finished moving all of their belongings into the apartment, and getting them relatively situated in their designated areas, Sierra's body was aching and she had worked up quite a sweat. She decided she was going to go and run herself a hot bath so she could get clean and relax. As she lay there, mostly submerged in the hot and moderately bubbly water, her mind began running through a mental checklist of everything that still needed to be done.

Eventually her thoughts brought her to the realisation that they didn't have any food. It was still reasonably early in the evening, but Sierra couldn't be bothered going out to buy anything to cook, and she had a feeling Brynn wouldn't be either. Although she was hungry, she was too comfortable to get up and do anything about it, fortunately her telepathic connection with Brynn would allow her to relay a request to her without having to move a muscle. "Hey I don't know about you, but I'm getting pretty hungry. Why don't you order us some food? I don't care what it is, as long as it isn't too spicy."

”Are you reading my thoughts or something?” Brynn asked back, knowing full well that it was possible. She was slouched across the arms of her favourite armchair, phone already open. As a result, she was opening the take out app in seconds. ”I’m getting gyros.” It wasn’t a question. Brynn wanted them, and she already knew Sierra’s order. Though, the fact that it’s the same order does make it easier.

With Brynn handling the food Sierra was able to relax once again. She stayed in the bath for another half an hour or so, up until the temperature of the water dropped to the point where it was no longer soothing to sit in. Her sister hadn't called her for the food yet, so she was in no rush to get dressed, and took her time picking out a nice comfortable outfit to lounge around in, as well as dry her hair thoroughly before joining her twin in the living area. Once there she threw herself down on the small couch they had and pulled out her phone to do some online shopping. She recently received a promotion from work, which was the reason for them moving to a bigger flashier apartment, and she felt like she deserved to splurge a little as a reward for her hard work.

Just as she sat down, the buzzer for the door went off. Brynn sighed and looked across to Sierra, who had just gotten comfy on a couch. ”I'll get it,” Brynn said, dejectedly. She knew that Sierra wouldn't go get it, not for anything, so there was no real point to even asking. Brynn dragged herself out of her chair and walked to the door, buzzing the delivery guy in. She'd be damned if she was going down there again today. In fact, she'd be happy if she never had to go down the stairs again. She'd just get Sierra to do it, then teleport down there.

There was a knock at their door, which Brynn promptly opened, procured food from, and closed. Paying and tipping had already been done over the phone, so there was no need for that again. She teleported over to her sister, gave her food, and walked back to her armchair to sit down. Everything hurts and this will fix it all,” she thought to Sierra.

Sierra didn't even flinch at the sound of the buzzer, she was far too occupied with filling her shopping cart with more clothes than her wardrobe could hold. She probably wouldn't buy everything, but the site was having a sale, so who knows. The only thing that would draw her attention away from her phone was the smell of food. She quickly sat up as Brynn appeared before her, and tossed her phone aside in favor of the food. By the time her twin was seated again, she was already one mouthful in. A deep satisfied hum came as the only response to the other woman's thoughts.



Restaurant Euphoria - August 1st 2019 - 9:35pm

Jun had been pulling a lot of night shifts lately, which was beginning to tire him out. He couldn't really complain of course, because work was work, but the restaurant was a lot busier at night and the poor guy hardly got five minutes to himself between serving tables. It didn't help that they had been short staffed for the past week as well. All of this was starting to wear him down physically and mentally. Even someone as laid back and easy going as Jun wasn't immune to the occasional stress induced meltdown; especially when dealing with the pretentious rich folk who frequented the restaurant. He did his best to keep calm and carry on though, as he couldn't afford to lose his job. He needed the money to pay his bills and buy food, and considering how much of a struggle it had been to get it in the first place, he couldn't imagine he would have much luck finding another.

There was one table in particular that was giving him the most trouble. A young couple who were celebrating their first anniversary, but were having relationship issues and kept dragging their poor waiter into the middle of them. The biggest problem from what Jun could see, was that the male was more invested in whatever was on his phone than his girlfriend; and in order to get his attention she would end up shamelessly flirting with Jun. Normally he would be flattered, but considering she was in a relationship and she was only using him, and that he was getting a lot of flack from her boyfriend because of it, it was beginning to get on his nerves. Jun was nearing his breaking point, fortunately for him -and the young couple that he would inevitably have ended up chastising- his best-friend and fellow waiter swooped in just in time to save the day.

"Hey man, isn't it about time you took a break?" Being confident that his friend would refuse, Kevin didn't wait for Jun to respond and immediately began guiding him towards the staff room. Usually he would have protested, but he was actual grateful for the chance to relax and recompose himself, so he simply went along with it. While he had a few moments to himself Jun decided he would check his phone to see if he had any miscalls or messages; there were none.

Not quite ready to return to work he then decided he would go outside to get some fresh air. While he was out there, he witnessed what was quite a strange sight. A flash of lightning tore through the sky, which normally he wouldn't pay much mind to, except that he didn't remember there being any thunder storms in the forecast. What's more, this lightning had shot up from the ground, rather than striking it from the clouds, which is most definitely not how storms worked. Of course there was only one lightning mage he knew that was powerful enough to cause such a spectacle and that was Salem. That fact did not serve to comfort him in anyway though. There was no way she would be giving off such a display just for fun, and he knew she was either pissed off or in distress. The thought to contact her and check in did occur to him because he knew how stressed out she had been lately, with Aliira missing and the elders refusing to form a search team for her. He didn't act on that thought though, as from past experience he knew it was better to let her cool off first, so he made a note to see what had happened when he finished work.

Before he could return to work a new and disturbing thought dawned on him. Although Salem could have quite an explosive temper, he had never seen her express it in such a public manner. This drew him to the conclusion that her outburst must have something to do with Aliira. Jun's blood turned cold as his mind ventured down a dark path. "Oh god...Aliira couldn't be..." Jun couldn't bring himself to actually say what he was thinking, it was already horrible enough to even think about.

"Woah, are you okay? You look like you've seen a ghost." Kevin's voice broke him out of his trance, but Jun was too out of it to register what he actually said. Seeing the look of concern on his friends face was enough of a clue to get a general idea though. "I'm fine. Let's just get back to work." There wasn't even the slightest hint of confidence in his voice, but he ran the risk of breaking down entirely if he attempted to bring the thoughts in his head to words. There was also the fact that his mundane companion would have no idea what he was talking about anyway, so it was no use getting into it. All he could do was force all thoughts of Salem and Aliira to the back of his mind and focus on getting back to work.
Jun is available for relations, past and present.
@FunnyGuy Yeah, I just hope I haven't stepped on anyone's toes for even suggesting anything. I will say that I think the base stats do help in establishing a reference point to how the aura empowers him at different levels, but that's just my opinion.
@FunnyGuy Sorry, I didn't meant to be confusing, I just wanted to try and be helpful, but now I think I shouldn't have said anything at all. It's not like my word carries any weight anyway.
@FunnyGuy No, I didn't mean specific numbers, I am aware that those kinds of things can be googled if you want specifics. I just meant a general idea.
@FunnyGuy It might be worth it to give an idea of what his normal human physical ability is, just for reference. Otherwise it's still pretty vague on how much it gets enhanced by the aura. If that makes sense. Just a suggestion though.



I'll get his relations done later, since we are still waiting on other characters anyway. But finally, here is my boy.

Here are my more refined ideas, in order of how excited I am to play them.
Totally not a covert way of saying please let me use the hallucinations power



I have no say, but I really like the first two.
Just wanted to add my 2 cents
