Selyna dipped her head towards Trent, which was as close as she would come to a nod. She even went as far as to smile at him.

"You are correct. Have you any idea how to find Snorlax and Misa? I do not believe they went this direction, since we have been walking for some time and have yet to find them. Perhaps they have returned to class?"
27th-Jan-2007 04:18 pm (UTC)
Trent was starting to get more used to this girl now. And come to think of it, she might be cute, in a socially-awkward golden furry thing kind of way. Regardless, upon Selyna's inquiry, Trent did think about what they should actually do. Well, they were already out here, anyway...

"Hm, well, perhaps... After all, that Misa girl was quite determined, now wasn't she? From what I see, chances are most likely that she's probably already dragged the bugger back to class, as you've just said. So, I suppose heading back probably would be capital, since then if the teacher's not back yet we can slip out of too much trouble at the same time. Kill two birds with one stone, wouldn't you say"
27th-Jan-2007 04:35 pm (UTC)
Selyna cocked her head sideways in confusion. "Why is it necessary to kill birds?"
27th-Jan-2007 09:36 pm (UTC)
"...I suppose you don't know what the word "idiom" means, do you, Selyna? Regardless, it's just a saying..."
27th-Jan-2007 09:45 pm (UTC)
Snorlax was getting tired of arguing. Geez, why couldn't Misa just go along with his ideas? "I don't think that's a real reward, seeing how we'd probably have to eat together at lunch ANYWAY. You can't turn something that was going to happen anyway into a reward. We can find them, and then eat lunch."
27th-Jan-2007 11:23 pm (UTC)
"What about doing our assignments? That's much much much more important that eating lunch at the wrong time."
28th-Jan-2007 12:35 am (UTC)
Selyna put a finger to her lips in thought. "An idiom? Is that not what some of the cadets were calling me when it was announced that I was to serve a detention? I did not realize that had to do with killing birds."

She paused for another moment. "Which makes me ask, what are birds? Are they horrible creatures?"

As they spoke, Selyna and Trent were winding their way back to the classroom.
28th-Jan-2007 01:10 am (UTC)
Trent at first wasa about to be a all flabbergasted at this, but then he quickly reminded himself that oh, right, these are aliens who have probably never even been within a mile of Earth, so of course they wouldn't know about his planet's expressions and creatures.

"Um, well, first of all, I think what they were calling you was an "idiot." That's uh, well, its not a very nice word. Idioms are common expressions that mean something different, and aren't supposed to be taken literally. And birds are these creatures that are feathered, have beaks and wings, and spend all day flying through the sky, and there are many differing kinds of them in all matter of sizes and types on my home planet.."
28th-Jan-2007 02:02 am (UTC)
Selyna pondered this answer. Of course, it raised a dozen more questions in her mind. What were feathers, beaks, and wings? What was the sky? Was it like space? She still did not know if these birds were creatures to be feared on Earth, whether or not the planet-dwellers fled when they approached. She decided that, rather than pester her new companion, she would look up all this information on her compupad when they returned to the classroom.

Rather than ask more questions, Selyna thought about what to say next. She knew that long silences were uncomfortable to most planet-dwellers, so as the seconds ticked away, she began to worry whether or not Trent was loosing interest.

Be polite, her father had told her. Include your own experiences when you talk to people. You'd be surprised how often people have experienced similar things.

"I have seen a space ship called The Bird," Selyna ventured. "It was on a collision course with a super nova. I believe it exploded."
28th-Jan-2007 02:34 am (UTC)
The first thought that went through Trent's head at this point was "Wow, this bird sure likes to talk a lot. Maybe she's just a very friendly one, I suppose...Wait, what did she just say?!"

"Ah...well..I suppose it would make sense that a ship would be CALLED The Bird, since they fly and all, but that's really not the same thing...wait, ae you saying you were here when this all happened? How on Earth were you able to survive an exploding supernova?!"
28th-Jan-2007 03:09 am (UTC)
"I was not on Earth," Selyna replied. "I was trying to assist the ship, but I was too late. Fortunately, I was able to teleport away from the explosion. Do the birds on your planet explode?"

They reached the doorway to the classroom, and Selyna paused outside.
28th-Jan-2007 03:15 am (UTC)
"I know you weren't on Earth, that's not what I meant!...Wait, you can teleport? That's bloody brilliant!" His eyes lit up upon thinking of all the fun kind of stuff he could do if HE were able to do such a thing "Oh, and uh, no, birds on our planet don't regularly explode, well, unless some sick wanker decided to try to MAKE them explode, I suppose..."

After they had reached the door, Trent opened the door and looked in quickly, then frowned.

"Hm, I suppose that Misa bird hasn't yet been able to get that other fellow back here, considering they're still not in here and all...Do you suppose we should just wait for them, or should we go for another look? I don't really care much either way myself..."
28th-Jan-2007 04:05 am (UTC)
Snorlax kicked at the ground, frustrated. "You already did your assignment! you won't get in trouble! Why does it matter to you if I do my assignment? On that note, why does it matter to you if I get in trouble for wandering around instead of being in the classroom or not? I didn't invite you. I didn't take you out here against your will. If the thought of getting in trouble for being out of the classroom is bothering you so much, then go back, okay? No one asked you to play sheep herder. Just go back and leave me alone!" Snorlax started going off in another direction, not really caring where his feet were taking him.
28th-Jan-2007 08:36 am (UTC)
"You know, if you're going to ask a million questions, you should stick around to listen to the answers." She doubted he could hear her. Earthers were way too deaf for that..unless his Yensid blood included reasonable hearing along with laser vision and green hair.

She could still, Misa knew plainly, drag him back. It wouldn't even be hard. But Snorlax was already mad at her and she didn't want to make it worse. It was beginning to look like they'd be spenting an awful lot of time in detention together after this little misadventure. Being in detention with someone mad at you was probably worse than being in detention with someone who liked you or someone who really didn't care either way. Group members should be able to work together and do their share and all contribute to the best possible outcome for everyone, not be mad at each other or disregard one another. In trying to ensure the unity of the Group, she'd fueled the worst sort of dissent.

Trent and Selyna were probably going to be upset with her, too, Misa reasoned. She said she was going to bring Snorlax back and she hadn't. Suddenly, it looked like the best she could hope for was one person mad at her and two that didn't care either way. At least if they didn't care, they wouldn't think she was a liar who couldn't do the things she set out to do. Assuming they were still there when she got there. It looked like Misa would be taking the long way back as it was.
28th-Jan-2007 02:10 pm (UTC)
"Perhaps we should attempt to look in the opposite direction," Selyna suggested, trying to ignore the statement that now Misa was a bird as well. "The doctor Flaggle-Floo has not yet returned, and there is still a chance that we could locate our companions."

She stretched one of her legs, hating the sensation of having her tail split in two. She would need to return to space soon. It was still too much of a strain for her to maintain this apperance all day, but she would learn.
28th-Jan-2007 11:13 pm (UTC)
"Hm...well, I suppose we could try that. Sooner or later we're bound to run into them eventually anyway, am I right?"
30th-Jan-2007 02:36 am (UTC)
Meanwhile, Dr. Flaggle-floo was making her way back to the classroom after molesting having a lovely conversation with Mr. Hoodly-who. In about ten minutes, she would get to the classroom and notice everyone was missing. And she would not be happy about that, not very happy indeed.
30th-Jan-2007 03:13 am (UTC)
"I suppose we would run into them, yes," Selyna replied. "Cannot Misa hear us? Perhaps we should just call her."
30th-Jan-2007 04:35 am (UTC)
As she meandered back to the classroom, Misa pondered, not for the first time, that her grades would be much better if she could just give her classwork the same amount of concentration she gave other pursuits. It took a lot of concentration to be able to hear herself think over the sounds of the world around her. Somethings--like the good of a group--warranted that intense concentration. But selfish pursuits like her own grades, which affected no one but herself...that she just couldn't bring herself to invest so much energy in.

Or so she liked to tell herself. Truthfully, classes were just remarkably boring when one is actually in them.

Either way, now that she was finished with her argument with Snorlax, being able to hear her own thoughts had become less of a priority, so she slacked her hearing-filter. Misa was momentarily overcome with the noises of the acadmey, but after a moment was reasonably accumulated to it.

"Awww..they're talking about me, aren't they?" she asked herself.
31st-Jan-2007 01:04 am (UTC)
"Hm, that is a good idea! That Snorlax bloke did mention something about her having super-hearing, didn't he? Well, let's give it a go then! Er, I suppose yelling would be a bit much...perhaps I should just talk somewhat louder than usual to make sure she hears us? Well, besides the point, Oi, Misa, if you can somehow hear us with your superpowers or whatever they are, then please tell us where you and Snorlax are, so we can all just go back and get out of this ruddy mess already!"
31st-Jan-2007 02:48 am (UTC)
The sound of her own name had caused Misa to hone in on Trent and Selyna's conversation nearly as soon as she had readjusted herself, but now she realised that her classmates weren't talking about her, they were talking to her.

"Of course I can hear you!" Misa replied. "I'm down in the left wing and Snorlax--oh, what does it matter? You can't hear me!" If only there was another way to communicate. Then again... "But I can follow the sound of your voices!" With that, she set off.
31st-Jan-2007 03:05 am (UTC)
Trent listened for a bit, then shrugged. "Well, I don't hear any response or anything. Maybe she's travelled so far away that she can't even shout really loud? Oh well. Do you suppose we should stay and wait a little longer?"
31st-Jan-2007 03:11 am (UTC)
"I would assume that if we left this spot, Misa would no longer be able to find us," Selyna pointed out. "Unless, of course, we kept talking. That is assuming she heard us in the first place."

She glanced over her shoulder to the door of their class room. "Perhaps while we wait, I can research a few of the things you were talking about on the Infocore. I would like to know more about birds, and why humans insist on killing two of them at once, and why they are often confused with Andromedans."
31st-Jan-2007 03:18 am (UTC)
"Wait, what? We don't confuse birds with anything! Well, I suppose one type of bird may be mistaken by another type if they look alike, but never for people! And I already told you, that phrase about killing birds was an idiom, just a saying! It's not supposed to be taken LITERALLY! It refers to being able to get two goals done with one action."

After this, Trent began to go towards the door, heading back into the classroom. "However, if you really want to go on ahead, I figure I'm going to just relax and play around for a while, until those other two get over here."
1st-Feb-2007 01:20 am (UTC)
Selyna dipped her head and followed Trent into the classroom. Once inside, she returned to her designated seat at the back of the room and picked up her compupad. The words "I am a Guardian" stared back at her, and she stared at them for a moment.

She glanced out the window and sighed. Her split-tail was aching, and she was starting to feel hungry. Living among the planet-dwellers was tough work, although she promised Father to do her best.

"I must leave for a moment. Please send a message to my compupad when the others have returned," Selyna told Trent as she tucked her compupad into her cloak.

Without waiting for him to reply, Selyna teleported out of the classroom and into open space.
