Adjusting to her new lifestyle was rough at first, but Serena slowly got the hang of it. She made some new friends along the way, and aside from the occasional beating she received during some of her matches, the challenges she faced weren't entirely impossible. At least, not until she noticed Greg. And she wasn't seeing things...he was actually there. She had missed him up that point because of the apparent, large scar on his face that wasn't there before. Coupled with the fact that he was aging more rapidly now, and it had been nearly a year since she'd last seen him, he was somewhat hard to spot if you didn't pay close attention
He had caught her staring at him, so he dropped his conversation with a small group of students and walked over to her, a slightly disturbing grin plastered on his face. "Serena! Well look who followed me here..."
"It's not like that! What are you doing here?"
"The same thing as you, babe," he crossed his arms, leaning against the pillar next to him, "obviously."
Serena stared at him for a moment, still with not much to say. "I...I gotta go." She immediately turned on her heels and walked away, ignoring Greg's off-handed comment regarding the two of them meeting up in the near future. As if that would happen. Her guess was that he had intentionally avoided her all the way up until that point. If that was the case, then he more than likely had some sinister reasons behind his behavior.
Immediately after their interaction, Serena headed back to her room. She had a long night ahead of her and for the moment being, she would prefer to avoid as many people as possible. Serena would simply bury herself in one of her books to get her mind distracted, although the various dark thoughts dancing around in her head made it a tad hard to concentrate.
