12.22.2132 – Interview in Utopia.

"Snowman?!" Smokey exclaimed. "She's jsut getting funnier every day, eh? Well, here's what we're going to tell her that you think: This kid was obviously infected by a demon, and now has demon blood in him. I'll bet you can't even see him at night if he doesn't smile or open his eyes..."

Temmit didn't respond to Smokey, but he did continue listening to the crystal's tale as he considered Renee's direct question.

"A kid who's suddenly energetic, extraverted, cocky, and flamboyant?" He asked, summing the situation up for his own benefit. "And one shall lead to danger." He quoted Mia's foretelling.

“What do you think it all means?” Renee asked. “You think the boy may have found his power such to his liking that he may now have a bit of a chip on his shoulder?”

Emma then said, “I really don’t know a lot about this kid, he is twelve, but I can’t even remember what House he is in.”

Renee returned, “I think he is in The Actors.”

Both girls looked at Temmit.

"All I'm truly sure of is that I don't know." Temmit uttered his well-worn quip as the two girls rolled their eyes.

"There's no way to know without meeting him, but I wouldn't be too surprised to find that he's suddenly confident in a new-found ability, and so he's not afraid of...whatever made him nervous before. One can hypothesize that the danger that he will lead to would be born of an inability to 'take one on the chin' without using his abilities, thus revealing his true nature, in turn jeopardizing the clan.”

He bobbed his head slightly, trying the theory on. Smokey whispered to him, and Temmit found himself speaking exactly as Smokey did, saying, “On the other hand, he might just fart fireballs.”

Both girls burst out laughing as they were caught off-guard by what was a rare joke from their usually serious friend.

After many moments of giggling, Renee, who looked at Temmit now with a little more affection than he was comfortable with said, “ I am thinking its the former. He probably encountered something in the Wildlands and summarily defeated it without a problem. So in a way, he could be very much like Mia, enjoying his newly-found power without realizing how much trouble it could get him into.”

Temmit shifted uncomfortably while his friends laughed. "Why do you insist on getting me into trouble?" He asked of Smokey.

"It wasn't me." Smokey objected. Of course, it was him, but that didn't matter all of a sudden.

"Well, I certainly will hope that it's just immaturity and not bravado. We just have to hope that he cares enough to curb any tendencies that he might have."

They were coming into more crowded areas then, so he changed the subject. "What's on for the rest of the day?" He asked. His stomach growled noisily just then, revealing what he hoped might be next.

“Well, I think that is it for the day my friends,” Renee announced. “I am going to go over to the library and then head off to Lakeshore for the evening to check on that lead. Since the Captain won’t be back until tomorrow’s eve, I won’t be missed.”

Temmit noted that her face became hard on that admittance.

Emma spoke up to ease the tension. “I think I will check out Leslie’s performance tonight, after I check in at the Church of course. Leslie said she was going to attempt at 8 night-hand start.”

"All right then." Temmit said as he pulled his head deeper into his hood. "I'm off to eat then, and I'll meet you two in the morning." In the back of his mind, Temmit made a design to attend the performance that Emma mentioned. First, he needed more coffee, and some food though.

"I will meet you two about 15 turns before 10 dawn-hand at the North Gate to Temple, I will be there to let you by the guards," Emma said and with that waved goodbye as she headed off.

"Um...Temmit," Renee said, turning his attention back, an eyeball just barely seen by her from under his hood. She suddenly looked a bit unsure of herself, "um...have a good evening," she said meakly and turned away, heading back to the School District and the library.

"Are you sure that's what you wanted to say?" He asked her pointedly.

"Nice cheeks though, eh?" Temmit was determined to not let Smokey get him into trouble.

Renee stopped in her tracks and paused a moment before turning, Temmit and her were about ten paces away from each other. The snow was now coming straight down in large flakes and at the moment the road which they stood upon was very quiet.

Temmit was always aware of Renee’s good looks, but at the moment she turned to face him, the sheer beauty of her was an absolute vision of loveliness. Standing in front of the eastern gate to the Park, her silhouette was in sharp contrast to the wintry scene of sleeping trees behind her. Her red hair, poking from the inside of her hood framed her face before the snowy-white background. Her emerald eyes looked straight into him with affection he had seen hints of since the meeting.

It was his turn to feel meek.

“Thanks for listening to me last night, and being a perfect gentleman,” she said without approaching, her hands crossing behind her back. She lifted the weight off of one foot and swung her ankle lightly back and forth, the toes still anchored in the snow. (OOC: I love it when girls do that.)

Temmit sensed that this was the sincere Renee, not the coy one playing the game last night.

“I can’t tell you how much it meant to me to finally have someone to talk too, and you didn’t make me feel...” she lowered her gaze in shame for just a moment, then returned to Temmit’s gaze, “...like a whore.[/b]”

The word was kind of a shocking ending to what otherwise had been a gentle and complimentary sentiment.

I don't think that I've ever actually seen a girl do that, other than in cartoons or porn.

Temmit noded to Renee in understanding. "We all need people to talk to. People you can actually trust." He said. "Tell you what: for the price of a large coffee and a fat sandwich (and perhaps a scone for later), I'll be glad to go with you to Lakeshore." He smiled slightly then. "Of course, I'll be glad to accompany you regardless of the food; you just might have to wait for me to get that for myself."

(OOC: I think you are thinking of other[/b] exaggerated movements, I speak of simple femininity that although lost upon many girls in today’s society, is still seen outside of the porn genre. That being said, could you burn me a copy of that one?!)

A smile and a blush accompanied Renee’s response. “That would quite lov...um, cold. Come on,” she waved him over, “I think you still have my coin pouch anyway.” She said with a giggle.

(OOC: Sent you an email asking for which direction you now want to go.)
