Ez was glad to see that the guy who had been purring at her smiled back at her before he let out another loud purr. It made her smile a bit more, and she closed her eyes a little as she continued to hand out the papers to the class before taking her place at the front of the class, taking the chalk and writing a few things on the board for the teacher as she began the lesson.
Adrian, however, after being warned by Ez, couldn't help but to keep looking at Hoyt. He was a demon, but he didn't show any signs of being mixed with anything else like most did. Especially if he were mixed with a dragon or a shifter. Even he knew they all had their tweaks, even if the demon was more dominant. He knew that. He didn't realize he had been staring that long until he saw the guy show him a note and he sighed and looked forward.
"Sorry, just hard to see a demon in a shifting class without showing what else they are." he mumbled a bit, doodling on his page before his name was called.
"Mr. Desmond, can you answer the question?" the teacher asked, and he shook his head, and she seemed a bit annoyed when he did.
"Depending on your mastery of shifting, you can either elect to not shift at all or learn to partial shift." Ez spoke, absent-mindedly as she finished writing down the things on the board. "Anyone in here who heard the question would know that."
"Partial shifting?" Adrian asked. "That's not exactly easy to do, even with mastery."
The teacher smirked and looked to Ez. "That is correct, Mr. Desmond. It requires a lot of discipline." she said, "Demonstrate."
Ez nodded and walked to the front of the class and watched as her hand started to scale over and her talons grew a bit. "Discipline, hard work, and focus." she said, willing her hand back to normal before the teacher began again.
"Who here can name the three parts of the body that are usually most affected in any form of transformation?" she asked, seeing Ez go back over to the chalkboard.
Adrian rolled his eyes a little at the lesson as he began taking notes again. He didn't want to deal with this today, and somehow, now seeing that the girl at the front was at least half dragon and commanded quite a bit of respect from the other dragons in the class, he knew she was their leader. That meant that it must be who he was meant to deal with.
Kingsley was a little glad he had allowed the girl, Molly, to pet him before the next class came in. He purred a bit before watching her wave and leave. He stretched a bit and took the little bit of time to go and shift back into human form. The third period class was usually more rowdy than the others, aside from maybe fifth period, but he knew he'd need to be in human form for it. When he returned to the class, he saw the two Martin sisters who had been relatively quiet the day beforehand seemed to be chatting as he went around the class.
Randa sighed a bit as she and Maggie sat there, watching everyone file in. Her eyes caught Logan when he walked past and when he gave a tense smile she quirked a brow, but she gave a small smile back, seeing Maggie wave a little. It had been really weird since the feud had started with him. As much as she missed talking to him, considering he had been one of her first friends at the school, she knew it was tough. She sighed, and looked to the empty seat in front of her. It was the only one left, so if Devin did show, she would at least have some entertainment.
She had brought her camera up under the table a bit as DuPage began talking before she felt Maggie nudge her when the door opened. Seeing Devin made her laugh a little, and she brought her camera up and snapped a few more photos before she put it back.
"Mr. Lively, I don't appreciate tardiness. If you can't be on time, you will start receiving detentions." he said. It caused a few people to 'oooh' as Devin took the empty seat in front of Randa. Randa looked to Maggie and nudged her. Maggie looked as Randa leaned over and whispered.
"You gonna be able to see with that shiner?" she whispered and Maggie saw DuPage turn to look at them and pulled Randa back in her seat as they both pursed their lips together to try not to laugh.
"Randa." Maggie whispered. "You're going to get us in trouble."
Randa tossed Maggie a look. "Only if we get caught." she whispered back, and she took a page from her notebook and wrote something on it before she tossed it. It hit the back of Devin's head and she rolled her eyes and kicked it to where Devin could see it.
"Miss Martin." DuPage said, and both Randa and Maggie looked at him.
"Which one?" Randa asked, and Maggie nodded.
"You've got us both, Professor." Maggie said, and he sighed.
"Miranda, then. How long have the wars been going on?" DuPage asked.
"Continuously or just in general? The last war ended about 75 years ago, but overall the wars have gone on over the course of about 1000 years, at least the notable ones." she answered, and he nodded a bit before going back on about the lesson and Maggie just smiled to her.
"Sometimes I really hate that dad bored us with this stuff, but then there is times like this where I appreciate it." Maggie whispered and Randa nodded, seeing the little note she threw at Devin was finally off the ground. "What did you even write?"
Randa just gave a grin. "Asking him if he wanted some nuts since apparently he has none." she whispered back, and Maggie put her head on the desk and giggled a little before feeling Randa nudge her. When she looked up, she saw DuPage was still going on but was now looking right at them. They both smiled at him and Maggie wrong something in her notebook.
Imagine if Erin is in this class too. she slid it to Randa who began writing back to her, still waiting for Devin to react to what she wrote. There had been quite a bit of bad blood between the two since before the feud even, and Randa sort of zoned out thinking about it.
"Thanks babe." Billie said as they walked down the hall. A tall, very well built guy with dark blond, almost brown, hair was walking with them. "I really appreciate you finding someone to do this double date with."
"Yeah, yeah, you owe me though." Randa said, and she watched as Billie headed over to the table where Devin was in the cafeteria when she felt the guy put a hand on her shoulder before he could follow.
"You sure you want to do this?" he asked her and Randa nodded.
"B is my best friend, and as much as I hate Devin being with her, I've got to be there for her. Especially with how she says they've been fighting lately." she said, "Thanks for doing this, Abs."
They began walking over and he gave her a gentle nod. "You know I'm here when you need me." he said, and she nodded with a smile, sitting down across from Billie. Randa felt Colten sit beside her, and she saw Devin looked less than please with her being there. It was nice for the most part, when they were all talking, and even Colten tried to include Devin in the conversation, but he never said too much really. Randa sat there, feeling Colten's arm come around her as they sat there, and when she saw Billie get up to get something, she heard Devin speak. She chuckled at his question.
"What's my problem with you?" she scoffed and she clicked her tongue. "Well, lets see... You're not even in the same league as Billie, you shouldn't be with her at all. She's clearly just slumming it with you, and once she's done getting whatever kicks she's getting with you, you're never going to have a chance in Hell with anyone else."
What Devin said after that made Colten look at Randa, who looked away. She went to say something else, but Billie came back and Randa stood up. Colten did as well, and she looked at B. "Come by later, B. I have a thing I got to do." Randa said, "Totally forgot about it until just now."
Colten looked to Randa, seeing her wrist glowing a little before he put his arm around her. "Thanks for inviting us, Billie."
"No problem." Billie said, looking to Randa. "I'll see you later."
"Yeah." Randa said, looking to Devin. "Bye Fuckface." she said, shrugging as they left, and Colten looked down to Randa as they got out of their eyesight and ear shot.
"You alright?" he asked her and Randa looked up at him.
"Yeah. Totally fine. I just finally get why everyone was the way they were when I was with Tony. Devin may actually be worse thought, but I can't say shit because she dealt with me with Tony." she said, and as they walked he saw her scratching at her glowing wrist.
"You know, Randa." Colten said, and she looked up at him. "You shouldn't take anything he says with a grain of salt."
"Yeah, I know. He's just always irritated me." she said, and she leaned against him as they walked more. "Wanna stay tonight? Maggie is hanging out with Joe anyway."
"Sure." Colten said."
Randa snapped out of her thoughts when Maggie nudged her, and she looked to her before looking forward.
Joe sighed a bit, watching for Devin still as he walked with Jo. He nodded when she answered him, and he spoke again. "Okay, I saw you rubbing your side and had to ask." he told her, and as they walked to the library, Joe noticed Devin hadn't followed them. That could both be a good thing and bad thing, especially knowing how Devin got. He wasn't above hurting girls, which made him a bitch, but it also made Joe wonder what he'd do now. He sighed a bit, holding the library doors open for Jo as they headed in.
When she asked if he would stay with her while she waited, he nodded. "Sure, I don't mind." he said. It wasn't long after that though, he saw Alex come in and he saw Jo walk over to him and hug him.
"Hey." Alex said, looking down at her and gently putting his arms around her. "What happened?" he asked, bringing a finger under her chin and he saw her throat was a little red and he saw Joe standing there.
"Devin had her pinned against a wall, I took care of it." Joe said, and Alex took a deep breath and nodded.
"Thanks man." Alex said, rubbing Jo's back a little. "I'm glad you were there, Joe. Really, thanks."
"You know I don't mind it." Joe said, patting Alex's shoulder a little. He looked to Jo. "Nice meeting you, wish it would have been better circumstances. And if you ever can't find anyone and don't feel comfortable, I'm usually around. I'll sit with you so you're not." he said, sinking into a shadow and leaving.
Alex looked to Jo, walking with her over to the table and setting his stuff down. "I'm so sorry it took me so long." he said to her. "If you want we can wait until after classes and I can help you with your stuff if you're not feeling up to it right now."
He looked around and he let out a small whistle, seeing Blaze appear and she walked over and stood by Jo, nuzzling her hand a little. Alex was trying very hard not to get too mad and he sighed. "I should have waited to have Aren redo the enchantment on my glasses until after classes. I'm sorry."
