Apply Here The morning was brisk, and the sun had just started to peek over the horizon. A beautiful sight, for anyone to see. This angel was especially blessed. He was able to view this spectacular sight from the top of his school. He sat in his room, chair facing the large windows, with the breeze flowing in. He took a sip of the hot chocolate he had made for himself earlier this morning. This was paradise on earth. While he knew true paradise, this was as close as he was likely to get for some time. Anael sighed rather contentedly, placing his cup on the ground next to his chair. He took a deep breath, simply staring out his open window. He stayed like that for a good fifteen minutes, though it felt like only a few seconds to his immortal mind. He stood, taking his cup to the sink in his small apartment. He looked at the time, noting how early it was. No one would be arriving for some time. To ensure safety of the grounds, he quickly changed into a form that could fly. With a bright flash enveloping, he soon emerged, his eyes glowing a heavenly blue, and pure white wings adorning his back. Leaping from his open window, he easily took flight, surveying the grounds. Once Anael was sure that everything was safe, the angel returned to his room. He switched back into his human appearing self, and once again checked the time. Students would be arriving soon. Professors and other staff would be helping them find their dorms. He quickly made his way down from his quarters, and by the time he reached ground level, he could see some staff milling around. Taking a glance outside, he could see cars pulling up. It had begun. Urzul had been awake before dawn, as was her normal routine. She jogged before she started her day. As she ran, she saw the Dean surveying. It was a good idea. They didn’t want some extremists coming in wanting to kill the “freaks of nature” that were inside. She returned to her little house, always glad for those eight foot high ceilings. Getting dressed, and eating breakfast, she returned to the outside just in time to see cars pulling up. She’d stay away from the entrance for now. People had a habit of mistaking her for a bouncer or something similar, or getting nervous about what kind of school they were getting into. Laughing slightly, she walked near the entrance. She wouldn’t stay for long. Some staff had already convened, ready to start pointing the students in the right direction. She started walking towards the main building, standing near the door leading into the hall that separated the dorms. She could help the students if they got confused this way. She smiled a bit to herself, happy to help. This was quite the momentous day for Parisa. It was her first step in transferring colleges. She had finished her generals and worked for a decently long while. Now, it was time for her to hone her abilities. Once she was finished with her two years here, she could move on to a four year college, and then work towards her Master’s degree, then her Doctorate. She had a plan, and she was sticking to it. She had driven herself to the place. She had a nice silver Audi 2010 A8 that she saved up for. She parked in the lot in front, and stepped outside, gazing up at the grandeur of it. She went to a similar school before for a very short while. She popped her trunk, and grabbed two suitcases she brought with her. There was a small bit of furniture inside as well. Some people were walking down to the lot, which she assumed were staff members. She assumed correctly when they started helping people, including her. “Ah, merci.” She nodded, as they took some furniture and led her to the dorms. She was pretty impressed, she hadn’t gone to a school quite so large before. When she got to her room, the people set down her things, and she immediately got to work organizing. She left her door open and opened her window to let some fresh air blow through. She had a good feeling about this place. “I think we’ll both like it here.” She murmured, putting clothes into the provided wardrobe. “A fresh start.” Sable silently drove to the school. He looked up at it solemnly, hoping that maybe, just maybe, he could find the one he had been searching for. He parked, and sighed, looking around the car. He had gotten his license a while ago, just so it would be easier to get around. He couldn’t fly or teleport everywhere. He stepped out, grabbed his suitcase, and the sparse amounts of other things he brought with. He declined the help of the staff. He could likely lift his own car, he didn’t need help with luggage. He followed others towards the dorms, and soon found his room. He squinted, noting how bright it was in the room. He hurried over and closed the shades, making it a fair bit darker. Much better for someone like him. Unpacking his clothes, he found the memento he had packed with him. A simple silver pendant of elvish make. He slipped it over his head, and kissed the pendant lightly before tucking it beneath his shirt. Once finished, he looked at his still empty room. He didn’t mind that it wasn’t very personal. He didn’t need to sleep anyway. This room was merely a place to store his things until his time here was over. Nicholas sighed, staring up at the large building. So this was to be his home for a while. “This is the place.” He told the taxi driver, who turned into the lot. Nicholas paid the man and tipped him before getting his things from the back. There were boxes and suitcases, all items from his previous apartment. He was thankful that there was staff available to help him. There was no way he could carry it all by himself. He followed them to his dorm, nervously looking around the halls. People had already started to file in. He found his room, and nodded a thanks to the people who helped. He set his things down, and looked around his room. A small shudder ran through him, but he brushed it off, and went on to putting his things away. He put his clothes into the wardrobe, and then proceeded to decorate his room with everything he had brought. Some things couldn’t be hung, like some of the frames that required screws, so he just set those aside for the time being. He didn’t have much in the way of knick knacks, mostly just pictures or random pieces of thrift store art that he thought was neat.
