Rex lost his concentration and dropped the smouldering object to the floor. He then looked up as he stamped the flame out, and whispered to Gaius "courtyard at lunch?" Before casually walking out
"Oh..... That is bad." Thalia said. She then turned back to the lesson. "If runes were ancient writing methods, isn't it possible that there are a few buried near the school?" she asked the Magister.
Adriana sat next to Rex in their second class - Runes. She could tell he was uninterested in the subject, and she felt almost similar. She, however, wanted (and needed) to learn about these things, so she paid attention even though she was itching to try channeling again. And that thing that had happened earlier - it was absolutely fascinating to see all the four powers or elements that she could reach into.
Adriana could only stare as Rex burned his things and walked out with such a peaceful demeanor. She turned her attention back to the Magister who continued to answer questions and talk more about the history of the writing systems.
"A few years back a team of Magicians sweeped the whole area between here and Hiorep for Runes. If was a very informative expedition," the Magister replied.
Thalia wondered how the Rune word process worked. "Sir, I wanted to know how many things a Rune can say...." she clearly liked this class.
"Well, writen runes can say absolutely anything. However, the practicalicy of actually forging a rune out of metal this complicated is small," the Magister replied. As he said this a high note pierced the classroom. "Class dismissed."
Thalia got up and headed out. She forgot something, ran back in, and got a small jewel, then ran back out.
OOC: The jewel makes her channeling easier.
OOC: Sure, but usually the Academy wouldn't allow it.
Gaius walked along with the others.
"Wow, Rex, I didn't think you'd actually do that," he said.
"Yeah... Trying to ditch class later on, I can understand, but the first day? You got guts, man."
There is a fine line between genius and insanity. Beware the blind and the sight-impaired.
Thalia looked at Ame. "Um, hi." she said. Jewel and all, she was ready. I really can't believe Rex was that stupid!
"I am." said Thalia..
Gaius led the way back to the lunch hall. Lunch was a simple affair, a salad with some bread and chilled meats. But in the heat of the midday Sun, it was a welcome cooler.
