This isn't the way we're supposed to be

      Orion tilted his head with surprise as Genevieve didn't even speak to him, barely acknowledging his question. Going quiet and feeling like the world just hated him, he stared down silently at his work and absentmindedly began completing the tasks Genevieve had given him.

      OOC: Well, at some point we need a confrontation between the two of them because of the choices that Orion made. Specifically because Orion doesn't know what his actions caused to happen.

      yes, but I think we should wait just a bit for that since Genna isn't sure what Aurora told Orion and she doesn't want to just come out and say something that will get the younger girl in trouble, y'know? so until Gen decides to blow up on Orion (potentially after an encounter with Trent where she's all on edge and everything?) she just seems like she's in a bad mood - I just don't know what to write until then

      OOC: Perhaps at this moment without bringing Aurora into it Genevieve would try to figure a little more about the home situation Orion has? Or perhaps we can skip the class and have that conversation in a more private environment like the hall at the start of another class.

      Orion was experiencing great unease as the class continued, mainly due to the utter silence that Genna was maintaining as class continued. Besides the occasional quiet question, she wasn't speaking a bit, and it was unnerving him, especially in comparison to how much she usually spoke. He continuously swung back and forth between an urge to speak up and ask her what, if anything, was wrong, but consistently felt doubt panging throughout him about whether it was his right to pry into her issues, and as he consistently moved back and forth between trying to decide what to do, time passed quickly and the bell eventually was ringing.



      He packed up his things and the segments of the work that Genevieve wanted him to handle. Usually, he wouldn't care, but after how kind and friendly she had been to him, he felt like it was important for him to do the work she asked him to.


      Leaving the class, he tried to catch her attention to say something.

      Genna was walking towards the lunchroom, still looking awfully unapproachable by anyone with any common sense. Normally, boys would make catcalls or off comments about her body or the way she was dressed, but today, for some reason, the onlookers remained silenced. She didn't notice Orion trying to get her attention until she was almost to the cafeteria. Turning on him, she tried to rediscover her general cool attitude. "What's up?" she asked, doing a quick scan to make sure Trent wasn't watching. Even if she was irritated with Orion, she didn't want Trent to get the wrong idea and beat the crap out of the kid.

      Orion took a deep breath, holding it for several seconds as he quickly cycled through his thoughts, trying in a panic to find what he wanted to say.

      "Uhh...nothing, just...you want to eat lunch together?" He cleared his throat awkwardly. It was the first time he had asked someone that question in high school.

      Of course, he had no idea of the danger that might come with Trent seeing them. He had been quiet and paid little attentioned to Orion throughout fourth period, but he had no idea of this.

      Genna hesitated. She was frustrated with the boy, but she didn't want to snub him completely. He didn't deserve that. Looking around again, she sighed, running a hand across her forehead to move her hair out of her eyes. She had been lucky that her cheek hadn't bruised after Trent's slap the day before. There would have been no hiding that from her parents. Looking at Orion, she just couldn't decide. "Look... I would like to eat with you... but I don't think it's a good idea... It's not a good idea for anyone to be around me right now..." What was she supposed to say? She assumed Aurora hadn't revealed the senior's secret to Orion, but what excuse could she give that wouldn't sound like she was trying to avoid him.

      Trent had too many friends... eyes everywhere. Even talking to Orion right now was probably going to spell out bad news later and though she didn't want to be afraid of Trent, she didn't want to be responsible for anyone getting hurt. She'd taken the fall last time - she'd taken most of the damage because she'd been too scared to come forth. This time, she was taking the hurt to keep others from suffering the same way she was. How was she supposed to explain that to people without revealing what was happening? As soon as Trent's actions against her were out in the open, word would get back to her parents and she'd be sent away again. She wouldn't escape this nightmare. She'd be stuck. Again.

      The stiffness in the young girl's body was a cruel reminder of what Trent was capable of when he wasn't necessarily trying to hurt someone. In some twisted way, he thought he loved her. She couldn't imagine what he would do to someone he hated... That was why it was so hard for her to say yes to Orion. The bruise that painted his face where Trent had hit him just three days earlier was an unpleasant warning that could easily become much worse. She couldn't be responsible for that. Not again...

      Orion showed no change of expression as Genevieve told him that it wasn't a good plan. Normally, the senior would of probably grown irritated or indignant at such a strange response, not appreciative of the answer which obviously was just being told to avoid him. For some reason, she just didn't want to associate with him. Something that he had said or done that he wasn't realizing. Maybe...maybe their talk the previous day about gender, when she was getting irritated with what he said about women.


      Nonetheless, she wanted nothing to do with him. It was a bitter feeling, something that he was having trouble defining; yet, it was dangerously familiar, a feeling of familiar disappointment mixed with hopelessness. That someone he was trying to be kind to, that he wanted to befriend, had grown irritated and sick of him.


      Feeling the very start of tears as his mind cycled through his old emotions, he said nothing in response, simply turning around, not even entering the cafeteria, and quickly walked off. He didn't feel hungry now.

      "Orion!" Genna instantly felt terrible for turning the boy down, but it was for his own good. If only he knew what was at stake. If he knew what kind of trouble she was in... But no. she couldn't tell him what was going on. Then they'd never see each other again anyway. Still, the knot that had formed in her stomach had rather destroyed her appetite. Turning away from the cafeteria, she began walking towards the art room.

      Upon arriving in the art room, Genevieve was highly dismayed to find her muse completely frayed. This had happened a few times before and it had been enough to make her want to pull her hair out. The last time it had been this bad was around the time after she'd been assaulted. Her mind had been so crazy that she hadn't been able to relay her emotions in any way, even in art. That was when you knew something was wrong.

      Finally getting mad at her lack of creativity, Genna angrily threw her ruined canvas into the trashcan, releasing a loud frustrated growl. She tossed her brushes onto the table and raised her hand to her forehead, pressing the flat of her wrist against her head as she closed her eyes, trying to calm down. Paint splattered her skin, staining it multiple colors. Luckily, however, it was mostly dried by that point so none of it got on her face. Looking at the time, she realized she wouldn't have time to wash it off before gym.

      Gym. She had never wanted to go to a specific class less. Trent would be there and she would have to act like nothing was wrong and he would think that what he'd done was okay. He'd keep coming at her and as much as she didn't want to admit it, she wasn't entirely sure she could take it much longer. If her lack of artistic ability was any sign, she was already screwed.

      Picking up her backpack and her purse, the young senior left the room as the art teacher was returning. He'd long since given her a key and was rarely surprised to see her. After a quick greeting and farewell, she was gone, down the hall. Arriving at gym, she quickly went to change, only to remember that there was no way in heck she was showing off any skin today. Walking back out in the same tight jeans and sweatshirt she'd entered with, she told the coach she would still walk the laps but she wasn't changing. Though he looked at her funny, he shrugged and let her go. Joining the other students outside, Gen slowly started walking the track around the football stadium, wishing she had her phone. If Trent attacked her today, she couldn't even threaten to call someone for help... then again, she did have pretty strong lungs. Screaming for help was always an option... Though that would shed light on what was happening. Another problem for the young female. Still, holding her head high, she walked around, keeping an eye out for trouble.
