Kara and Maria

Kara

She was about to mention this outrageously titled book until she realized it was probably normal here. She laughed nervously, “I’m reading book covers!” Kara placed the book exactly where she found it and drifted off to another section of the library. Her eyes darted over to a specific book spine and she slowly pulled it out, examining the cover. This book was wrapped with tightly stitched cloth and appeared to have a purple ribbon bookmark. “Lore of this World,” Kara read out loud and opened the book at the bookmarked page. She scanned the text and read it mentally, panicking slightly at some of the ridiculous things she read. "THis is supposed to stone hard solid fact. aLL OF IT."

Maria

The white haired boy silently closed the door as after Aaron entered and then stepped away to lean against a wall. He had his hands in his pockets and shoulders slightly slumped. Maria probably did not want to linger on the subject to long but he was glad that Aaron had a Vents-styled lab. As of yet he did not spot a single thing that reminded him of system and the room’s smell was definitely not the same one that he used to inhale everyday when he was at System. The labs at system were all blindingly white and so very clean. The rooms would always smell like medicine and hospitals and he remembered that occasionally the metallic smell of blood invaded his nose.

Aaron and Kale

Kale

Surprised at Kara’s sudden gasp, Kale turned to look at her curiously, staring at the book she was keeping tucked close to her chest. Raising an eyebrow at the fact the girl was even holding a book, Kale watched at her distrustfully. “What are you doing?” He asked her flatly, arching an eyebrow and looking distinctly suspicious.

Aaron

Cheeks heating at Maria’s invasion of his personal space, and his teasing flirt, Aaron’s eyes narrowed even further into a glare, but the teen refused to step back, even when his skin prickled uncomfortably at having someone so close to him. Crossing his arms and giving Maria the most unimpressed look he could muster, the young genius felt his face fall slightly upon seeing that Maria didn’t walk into the door of his lab. He’d been looking forwards to seeing the bodyguard make a fool out of himself, and seeing his dreams subverted like that made Aaron’s previously cocky mood turn foul.

Walking slightly stiffly into his lab, Aaron breathed in the smell of oil and felt the tension in his shoulders relax incrementally the comforting space a memory of relaxing by himself and days spent working with metal and technology. Tapping and then sliding his fingers against the dark oaken wood desk the took up one full side of the room, Aaron sucked his tongue against his teeth, trying to figure out what he wanted to do first. He wanted to get to work on his newest project, but he should probably get Maria someplace to stay out of trouble fist, or at least tell the bodyguard what to touch and what to completely avoid if he didn’t want his head bitten off by Aaron’s stern telling-off.

Kara and Maria

Kara

"You’d have to have the brain of a monkey to break a book that easily…that is…if monkeys were known for being stupid?? Ugh god damn it," As Kara turned around her face contorted very quickly into strange expressions as the thought went through her head. She attempted at a sort of fast paced walk away from Kale and towards a section of books. Her steps slowed down as she started to wander through the section of books as if she was window shopping the titles. The tips of her fingers brushed against the spines of the books as she carefully examined each of them. There didn’t seem to be any books wrapped in plastic or any soft cover books for that matter. Quite a lot of them appeared to be old and some of them did not even have the titles on their spines. Kara came to the conclusion that she seemed to be in the “Science” section of the library and picked out a book that was covered in a leather bind. The letters that were pressed on to the brown and slightly worn out leather caused a gasp to escape Kara and she almost dropped it. Her eyes stared and the title and she read it out loud, “Basic Alchemy?” 
Haha there’s no way right? Alchemy is just some philosophical bullshit that was claimed to have happened in the Middle ages or something. Fucking hell this isn’t even talking about Alchemy in general oh no this is Basic Alchemy!”

Maria

Maria noticed Aaron suddenly stopped. He was not going to lengthen the gap between them, in fact at that moment, he stopped and drew his face closer to Aaron’s. “Well I wouldn’t be looking if you were so exposed!~” He whispered in a sing song tone then turned around and opened the door which he assumed led to Aaron’s lab. “Just be glad that there’s someone here to tell you that,” Maria frowned for a second at his slightly discouraging thoughts and side stepped out of Aaron’s way.

Kale and Aaron

Kale

Kale made a soft, agreeable hum in the back of his throat, acquiescing to her words and sinking a little lower in his chair out of boredom when he heard her voice coming from further away than it had been before. “Reading is fun, huh?” Kale asked, almost snorting in amusement, and he rolled his eyes. Though she couldn’t see it, the expression of ridicule and disbelief on his face would probably be easily heard in his tone. “Well, I don’t care. Just don’t break anything.”

Aaron

Girly," Aaron said, an expression of disdain on his features when he heard Maria’s words, and he looked down to his hands. Sure, they didn’t have callouses on the knuckles like Zoe’s hands did, and they weren’t as brown and freckled like Micheal’s were, but the inside of his palm and on his fingertips were still decorated in callouses from handling the hot metals and fine wiring that he used in building his contraptions. His hands weren’t girly.

As Maria’s voice came closer behind him, Aaron’s shoulders bunched up tighter, unhappy at having another person in his personal space; and behind him, no less.  When Maria cut in front of him, Aaron fastened an unimpressed glare on the other teen, his lip curled into a sneer. Giving a tiny but vicious half smirk upon seeing the closed door to his lab, Aaron crossed his arms angrily and stopped, waiting for Maria to walk backwards into the hard wood. “Well to be fairly honest Maria I’m not overly interested and I’d appreciate it if you stopped looking, thank you very much.”

Kara and Maria

Kara

"Nononono you should lie to him, you can’t afford him thinking you’re any crazier than he thinks you already are…..because you’re not actually crazy."  As Kara was about to walk towards the door, Kale’s question interrupted her mentally drawn out path and caused her to turn around to face him. “Because well…uh…” Kara paused, attempting to not sound so nervous, “Well, it’s better than not doing anything right?” Good god she hoped it wasn’t weird to know how to read. Kale seemed a bit shocked when she read out loud that it was the mansion of the Jordans earlier on. Her fiddling fingers drew closer to her face, “Plus reading is fun!” 
"ARGH WHAT AM I NOW A BOOKWORM? Reading is fun? Who would believe that?" The girl wasn’t normally this good at lying but she never did well in situations that made absolutely no sense what so ever.

Maria

"I guess you could call it a theory," Maria said, finding joy in his reaction. His pace quickened it did not take him long to be right behind Aaron. "Your hands look very girly you know? You might want to do something about that!" He chuckled this time as he accusingly pointed at Aaron’s hands. "Your skin is also very pale, compared to everyone else here," Not nearly as pale as Maria’s but he wasn’t about to mention that. As they reached the top of the stairs Maria started walking backwards so he could look right in his eyes, "If you weren’t wearing so many layers of clothing no one would really notice." 
"Apart from me of course."

Kale and Aaron

Kale

The blond’s ears flicked slightly as he picked up Kara’s quiet words, and he felt a little bit more doubt nestle in him at where, exactly, the girl came from. She had seemed normal enough, but as time went on, more and more things about her lead to Kale believing parts of her crazy story. She was insane, sure, but if she wasn’t- well…It would certainly explain a lot of things.

Arching an eyebrow at Kara’s fast-paced words, Kale settled himself into one of the chairs, uncomfortable but refusing to show it as he sat in the soft leather. “Whatever. We have to stay here, anyway.” Resting his feet flat on the cold floors, and tapping his long nails against the edge of the chair distractedly, Kale watched the door to the room, not unlike a cat watching a mouse’s hole. After a beat, he licked his lips and let his eyes flick to her, and then back to the door again, a flat curiosity in his next words; “Why?”

Aaron

"Excuse me?” Aaron asked, looking completely scandalised and appalled by Maria’s suggestion, and his head snapped back to stare at the other boy, torn from his thoughts. “What ever gave you rise to that notion?”

It wasn’t as though Aaron hadn’t considered the notion before, considering the differences in his time-spending in comparison to other people’s, and it wasn’t though it was a bigger deal than who he chose to spend his private life with, but when one’s siblings were like Aaron’s, it was hard to accept the notion that he would likely never enjoy spending copious amounts of time with people.

He needed to be able to spend time with people; he was the son of one of the most influential people in the whole Zone, for the Lord’s sakes! Without an ability to interact with people, his business options were severely limited. And, while he didn’t care what people thought about him, Aaron did still want to live a comfortable life, building things and experimenting. He simply couldn’t afford to be introverted, and anyone that cultivated that rumour wouldn’t exactly help his standings. 

"Honestly," Aaron snorted, quickly turning away from Maria when he realised that what he’d done may’ve been considered an overreaction, and moving up the stairs towards his lab at a fast pace to avoid looking at Maria again, "I would appreciate you keeping your stupid theories to yourself, if this is going to be one of them."

Kara and Maria

Kara

"No thanks."
Sure Kara was often alone because she traveled with her mother quite a lot. It didn’t mean that she had become a wallflower or a sociopath that was constantly driven up the wall. In fact, meeting all these strangers that Kara might possibly end up calling “Father,” left her with very little choice to make. All choices had very different outcomes for the way she acted and it was this choice that was one of the major contributors to this person you know as, “Kara,” today. Her period of panic left her with a lot to think about. “A male who I just happened to land on in the middle of nowhere who just happened to turn into a talking tiger as well then meeting another boy who somehow mistakes me as a prostitute, who’s associate is a polite girly looking albino without the pink eyes."At first Kara tried to deny everything that happened, it was all so surreal, so unbelievable, so scientifically impossible. It all just seemed so stupid to her. If it was a prank why would it be pulled to this extent? It was most definitely not another country, she had enough knowledge of Geography to know that and it most definitely not be some point in the past because while it does seem a little 1900s they had the strangest plants she had ever seen not to mention the tiger that had transformed and talked to her. When she mentioned earth he got very confused, the furrowed brow was especially convincing. 
"Just where am I?” The girl whispered to herself then looked up to face Kale but not really looking him in the eye, “That would be too dangerous,” she thought a little nervously.
"Uh..umm…do you…doyoumindifwestayinthelibrary?" She spoke quickly, fearing he would throw her out somewhere and abandon her, then come back if she inconvenienced him too much.

Maria

Maria was ready to smack him one on the head. “What a cocky brat,” He nonchalantly smiled as the thought went through his head. Maria was not much older than Aaron but he already knew that the boy sometimes did not act like his age. Maria’s grin suddenly widened, ”Hmm…?”  He had noticed this before and figured that it was only due to not facing any hardships as someone from a rich familiy but his hands looked usually soft for a boy his age. “You’re an introvert?” He asked, pausing for just a moment to think, most boys his age would have gone around picking fights and doing crazy things, even boys of high class families but as it was, Aaron would spend many days perhaps nights in his little lab, tucked away from the outside world. “An extreme introvert?” There weren’t any noticeable, “battle scars,” as some people put it, on his knuckles and it didn’t look like he carried anything heavier than a spoon so most people would reach this conclusion.

Kale and Aaron

Kale

Kale coughed lightly, shaking his head, before sparing a glance towards Kara. While usually he wouldn’t bother thinking of the girl, he didn’t want to accidently get on anyone’s bad side in the house. He’d heard a few stories around town about the Jordans’ daughter and her work with the police system, and if not getting on the girl – and her father’s – bad side meant coinciding some of his traditional barbs he’d just try and be a bit more polite. “I don’t want anything. You?”

Still, while he had no respect for this girl (especially considering her status as crazy-person,) Kale had treated her as though she needed to instantly know what was going on, when even he did not fully understand why this mission was so important. He knew the basics, of course, but the politics behind the System and Vents were thoroughly confusing to the more war-like tiger boy. It was difficult for him to even understand why they were all fighting; from what he knew, the Zones hadn’t even been provoked into attacking, but the general animosity between them grew day by day, and the Wilds didn’t’ need that on top of their own struggles for survival.

Aaron

“Mhm,” Aaron hummed in agreement, already turning his mind back to the problem at hand; the two that had followed – possibly followed? – them back to the estates. It was highly possibly that they were there to see his father, but coincidences were rare in his life; and besides, he’d long since learned to avoid anything resembling ‘fate’, and whatever this was could just be one big conspiracy.

Now that sounded paranoid. Pausing his thoughts to shake that one from his head and remind himself not to mention it to his siblings, Aaron distractedly headed for his laboratory, mind buzzing with the potential of a new invention. He barely remembered to pull himself from his thoughts for long enough to glance back at Maria and say, “Lab. Mine. Don’t speak, or you’ll not be allowed in, got it?” His glare was one born of practice and necessity, but delivered without any real venom, his mind already distracted again by the possibility of the new materials Roman was delivering and what the two strangers where there to talk to his father about.    

Kara

Kara

Kara nervously followed Kale’s actions and pulled off each of her slip ons but instead of letting her feet touch the cold marble floor, she bent down and grabbed a pair of slippers. 'Ha! Asian family etiquette really does pay off,' The girl thought triumphantly as she observed Kale’s reaction. To her surprise though there wasn’t really much to see, despite the way he had been acting before. Kara took a deep breath and sighed, realizing that she had been doing that a lot lately. Who wouldn’t? Everything that had been happening had been quite out of this world to her so she decided that right after this, she would try not to cause Kale any trouble anymore, after all she was just dead weight to him and the fact that there was this crazy girl who thought she was quite literally out of this world was scaring him a bit in the beginning as well. Kara thought about whether to reply to the butler or not she opened her mouth to speak but quickly shut it, thinking it was best for Kale to handle his own business.

Kale

Kale

Kale paused for a moment as he stepped inside; the Clans of the Wild were just that – wild. His people, especially, were nomadic, and rarely had permanent structures while they travelled. The only proper ‘permanent’ structure that Kale’d ever known was the High Rock, where his pack travelled once a cycle in the spring to name the young warriors in their coming-of-age ceremony, and even that wasn’t nearly as enclosed or grandeur as this place.

His sharp golden eyes noted the shoes by the door and he kneeled, nimble fingers undoing the laces on his boots quickly and slipping them off. His left leg was decorated in black spots and stripes, curling around his limb in a symbol of pride, but on the other leg a large bite mark scar showed where he’d almost gotten his leg bitten off one day by one of the croc-shifters as a pup. The scars were both a symbol of pride and shame to him; he’d survived with his leg, while many others would not’ve, but as a result the tribal markings that should’ve decorated both his legs were only relegated to one side, showing the idiocy he’d partaken in as a child. If he’d been a warrior and earned the scars in battle, they would’ve been proudly displayed on his body, decorated in red lines and curls, but as Kale had only gotten them as a pup, and by being reckless to boot, he would never be allowed to display the scar with any sort of pride.

Holy Lords, that’s cold! His mind yelped at him as his feet hit the marble, and he hissed at the surprise. He missed the slippers, instead straightening and forcing his discomfort from his mind, making sure no signs of his shift were visible. No claws from the cold, or extra fur to keep him warm. Just a normal, approachable (technically illegal) diplomat on a mission. Starting after the doorman as he went right, Kale only gave a brief flick back towards Kara to make sure she hadn’t wandered off, and knotted his hands behind his back to look more professional.

“The master of the house is currently in a business meeting. Please stay in here and feel free to observe the books in the library until he is done. Would you like refreshments?”    

dude I don’t know what to write about Aaron. I literally have two sentences about fluffy hair and that is it.
