Rose jumped when someone spoke to her, she looked up towards the woman and blinked to her with a bit of a started grin. "Hi!" She said as she straightened herself up as she offered both of her left arms to the woman, "My name is Rose, and yeah, I'm new here. Steph, Gaia and I came in together." She motioned with one of her arms towards the two winged woman, who had seemed to relax and pulled away from each other.
Steph glanced towards Gaia as she picked at her teeth with her sharpened nail, she looked away and gave a shaky smile. She closed her eyes and shook her head slowly as she slowly stood to grab some water. Her mind went to Benjamin after Gaia had spoke about him, he'd understand if she ended up accidentally 'hunting' another human male, right? Was it just males she needed to feed from, because she felt something when Gaia got close to her.
She shuddered to herself before she drunk the glass of water and started to walk along the common room, taking it all in. Her eyes kept going to the pole, looking away as soon as she noticed the shine on it and held back the urge to go try it out.
Gaia picked at her teeth, pulling out a strange mix of cake and meat from some of her hind teeth before she looked at it and shrugged. Why waste food? She thought as she licked it off her claws before she glanced towards the smaller woman that entered, her tail slapped the chair she was on as she narrowed her eyes. Who was this new person, were they indoctrinated here? Sent in to make sure they stopped worrying about getting out?
The door opened again, Gaia's instincts caused her to look immediately towards the door as she watched the small boy waddle into the room and over to the water tap. Gaia tilted her head as her spines slowly prickled up at the very idea that a child would be here, "Hey." She called, watching the child ignore her, "Hey." She said in a soft growl, causing the kid to flinch and turn to face her.
"I'm... Sorry." The boy said as he turned the tap off as he filled his bottle, "I...I was thirsty and the guards won't get water for me." He said, Gaia's spines relaxed before she stood to walk over to the child and pulled him into her arms carefully.
"I'm sorry for scaring you." He said, looking the kid over and flicked her tongue at his face, flicking his nose and causing the kid to giggle.
Harriet felt her stomach churn again, moving to vomit behind a bush. She could hear voices, but she couldn't tell if they were in her head or in real life.
"Shut up." She hissed towards the darkness, thinking it was just in her head, the whispers slowly coming closer to her head before she gripped her head. "SHUT THE FUCK UP." She yelled loudly, causing the birds in the trees to scatter quickly.
The voices didn't lessen, they got louder and caused Harriet to close her eyes and collapse to the ground. She pressed her forehead to the ground and started mumbling stuff under her breathe. She wanted Gaia, she wanted Steph or Duncan, She wanted either one of the three boys. A known voice, a known touch. Someone she trusted, she needed to hear someone she trusted.
