xD, I'll just pretend that whatever the rest of you at the center are saying is irrelevant to the plot...
Who's at the center right now? Everyone else, other than Kaine, Livvy, Reese, and obviously, Aeolus? So...
Time to read up again. :P
Carmen, Marinette, North (?), Leo, Eva, Delta, Sammy...and...the Gemini person. Actually speaking of that, who is the Gemini zodiac’s future watcher?
Yeah, that's twelve in total. Yay, my math is right today.
So, here comes Aeolus. Whether or not he gets discovered depends on you guys...if one of you POVs regarding that, anyways.
I moved cautiously, like I had learned to do while adventuring in the outdoors. Sometimes there were wild beasts waiting out there, or even unfriendly people. Always had to be on the highest of awareness, though as I was thinking that, as with Kay, Nicole, and Reese, these people weren’t probably bad, and just all over the place on terms of… personalities. Therefore, it would likely be best to avoid a confrontation, or a direct encounter in which risks of being attacked were more involved. Never knew when someone would be hostile for no reason.
Well…I thought. I’m the one sneaking around like I’m about to do something bad…On other thought, maybe I should come out openly. I clearly thought better of it.
Running behind one of the wider trees, I tried to recognize the zodiacal signs from this angle. I didn’t want to take anyone else’s; that would be stealing, and I did have a code against doing that kind of thing. No matter if it belonged to the people, or to Beatrice, I had a code against stealing.
I also saw that some of them were thrown carelessly onto the trees, suggesting some of them had already taken a look at the clothes before throwing them away. I remembered Nicole’s disgusted expression as she talked about hers, and could only imagine her expression when she had seen it. I tried not to visualize it as I would surely laugh.
Some people were talking, back to me, which was probably a good thing. I counted, and it turned out I was at the back of the 11th: Possibly being Aquarius. Sagittarius was the 9th sign, so did that mean it was the 9th tree? I also wondered if he should have asked Reese what his sign was; maybe I could have brought the other’s clothes back to him.
Someone was pretty close to the Taurus tree, and I tried to hide my presence. Just then, a tall boy with glasses glanced towards her direction, and I hissed slightly, trying to make it so my shadow wouldn’t be seen. The boy didn’t seem to notice me; good news.
I saw the skirt Nicole had been describing; I personally didn’t think it was too bad. At least, it could probably work as a bandage. Better than the one intended for me, anyways. But it was all the way over…at the end. I would have to get past the girl next to it. I gritted my teeth. Why did life have to make everything so hard?
I moved to the 9th tree, and grabbed the outfit. Maybe I could use it, or wear it in substitute if I needed it. Then I started moving, slowly, towards the first tree. If I can ever make it at this pace, I grumbled to myself.
