Dave ST Posted August 12, 2017 Share Posted August 12, 2017 "Homecoming" It had been a few weeks since Marius and his antics had left the Scions of Salem High on edge. They put up a good front, but he'd already demonstrated that he was willing to cross lines they weren't and go to any measures to succeed at whatever it was he was planning. They were kids, whether they wanted to admit it or not, none of them had ever experienced real evil and malice until that day Marius send his goons to murder a noble guardian in the mountains of Savoy State Park or plan the assassination of the Scion's mortal families. For whatever reason though, he'd disappeared into the mists of Salem's many mysteries and left the young students of Salem High to their devices. The Faculty had been on edge about the whole affair and decided to investigate the matter, being the new Scions on the block though mean that the task was given to the more experienced Band of Eric and his group of misfits and assorted sociopaths. Mr. Syracuse and Coach Fingers visited the giant wolf pup, the surviving offspring Honiahaka, the Guardian of Savoy. They even tried to take it away to a better home in one of the 'Realms' separate from the World. That was an exercise in futility, not only did they a get a severe mutiny from the Scions who rescued the nemean pup, but the pup itself refused to allow anyone but the Scions anywhere near it. It had bonded with them, and refused to leave their side. They had 'moved in' to the old Carlton Stables, an abandoned old estate that had been up for sale for years. It made for a cool 'club house', although Fisher was asked never to call it that ever again... for any reason. Training was going well under the gestapo-like regiment drawn up by Rachel. Nadya felt like her time with Coach Fingers had somehow made her just as evil... Rae-Rae was actually forcing her to work out, and not even in her heels! Austin and Fisher, with their two 'lance' style weapons made for an exciting to watch spar, amazing the ladies from time to time with maneuvers right out of some of the coolest martial arts movies. Still, both of them combined had a hard time matching Rachel blow for blow, she powerful, but relentless in her attacks and if she got a hold of one of them... it was over. All the while Wolf would sit on old wooden crates while the kids sparred in the open yard often times while Laurie played a lovely tune on her violin as Wolf howled and yipped at them when they took a hit or did something that looked cool. On a lighter note, after almost a month after he incident at the Salem Witch Museum, Natalie Myers was released from the hospital and was staying with some friends. She seemed well enough, but was severely depressed over the loss of her father and the strange events that happened that day. She was going through a lot therapy and was medicated out the wazoo, Grace and Darcy were being excellent friends to her, as well as they could anyway in her perpetually despondent state. She avoided Rachel at all costs, sometimes shooting glares at her or mumbling strangely to herself as they passed in the hallway. Still though, she was attending school and was trying to get her life back on track... What the Scions faced now was something far more dark and sinister than any plot cooked up by the Titans or Marius. What they faced in the coming days was a trial of emotional and mental fortitude. A challenge of one's ability to make good decisions and stand out as a model and example among their peers... yes... it was a dreadful time looming over Salem High, for around corner loomed the jaws of: The Homecoming Dance... Spoiler Kick it off people. Set the stage, I'll follow. You character can be at home chilling, hanging with other Scions, whatever... It is Monday. Disclaimer: Whomever posts first sets the time... so if Grace posts first and says she's in third period math, then everyone is in third period from that point on and we kick the story from there, if Fisher posts first and having breakfast before school, the time is before school and we go from there.
