  1. Melissa was excited to have a dorm, well in this case barracks, but it was the same thing to her.. It was refreshing to have a bed, and food each day. Sure she shared it with one other person but she didn't see what was wrong with that. They seemed to get along, though it had only been a couple days in the room for Melissa. Her roommate was Kali, an unhealthy looking girl. It was odd how she managed to look unhealthy after spending so long in the military. Usually it gives everyone a clean cut look, but her hair was still quite mangy. It was inexplicable, but she seemed like a nice person non-the-less.

    Melissa had nothing to decorate the room with. There were no pictures of family, or personal possessions. She had used her salary to get a few objects of her own. It wasn't much of anything, but something. a simple lamp. Decorated with yellow and green flowers. It was blue in color though.

    Tamara wasn't apart of the war. She hadn't had any war experience. But the war wasn't far off, and she knew it. her people were dying. Tamara hardly even considered herself abnormal. She didn't have much she could do anyway. Levitating wasn't much. How was that even considered something abnormal? Sure normal people couldn't do it, but that was like nothing. A sad skill. Tamara had to hide away. She could dissipate into shadows but that felt like the only thing that could keep her alive when the humans started coming after her again. She wasn't sure how someone even figured out how she was abnormal, but it happened. So she ended up hiding in the shadow until the human left. And now, she sat at her house, in fear. Sure, she was used to killing people, but that didn't mean she liked it. She didn't like being hunted either. It just wasn't up her alley. Stupid people. They were really stupid.

    Tamara's house was in the forest. It was secluded and away, it was booby trapped even. She never had visitors, but she had to watch the window every few minutes to make sure she wasn't followed. It was scary. How crazed the humans had become. She'd arm herself, and wait. She never again wanted to get out of the house.

    Rayna was busy sleeping, peacefully, upside down in a bat house. It was light outside and she didn't want to run around fully covered in her jacket. It was too suspicious. And with the release of abnormals, Rayna didn't want to be seen. She was a vampire, she could drink people's blood. She could kill them. There was an advantage, she had always thought humans were stupid anyways. They were ignorant, and arrogant. Then, she was woken up by a parade of people going by. They were loud and obnoxious. She didn't turn into a human to see them, or to hurt them, but she really wanted to. She could just change, walk up behind them, then bite their neck. Drain all their blood, and she'd be perfectly fine.

    Flying down below the top of the house, she used her echo location to find their position. A mental picture flashed through her head, there was a few of them. Only three, she could probably get all of them, no problem. But then, she'd have to transform and be careful of the sun. That would be difficult. It just wasn't worth it. So she flew back to the top of the bat house and wrapper her wings around herself. Hopefully the humans would pass soon.
     
  2. Kali shifted, pulling her knees close to her chest, arms wrapped around them. It was still so odd being here, in the barracks. Even though nearly a month had passed, she felt out of place. Less. Like she didn't belong here, like she never would. A feeling that her room-mate obviously didn't share, what with how she held herself. Tall and shoulders spread, mouth already set in a hard line - and Kali couldn't help but wonder if that was a recent change in personality, or just how Melissa had always been.

    At the moment, said girl was stretched out on her bed. Maybe she was thinking, but it looked more like Melissa was just staring up at the ceiling. Kali tilted her head to the side, brushing hair away from her face with a trembling hand. "We have our first big briefing tomorrow. Do you think you're going to be ready for it? I hear that they'll be assigning zones while we're there."

    Erline could hear them, tromping through his forest. Feet pounding against the ground, breaking branches and tearing through under brush. Paying no regards to their surroundings, those humans, those dogs that had been brought with them. As far as he could tell, they were chasing something. No, no, he knew they were chasing something. They were after the girl that lived deep in the depths of Erised Forest, just like the last group had also been after her. Except this one had dogs.

    He bit down on his lower lip, moved from trunk to branch to the next tree over - a grande oak that gave Erline a good view of the land. This war wasn't something that he had ever wanted to get involved with. Protecting the abnormals wasn't his job. It wasn't something that he really cared about, if he was being honest. They were crude and violant, destroying all that they came across. But protecting his forest? Protecting the things that lived in it? That was very much his job, and they were getting much too close to the young girls house.

    "Yes mother, of course mother, why ever not mother!" The words were followed by a loud huff as Emir flung himself down onto the seat of the subway, arms crossed over his chest. If his mother said one more word about 'change' and 'bettering their kind', Emir swore that he was just going to set their home on fire himself. She was so insistent that he get involved in this, that he join whatever half-assed group of resistance the abnormals had formed. It was stupid.
