The Lightmist Gifted Education Center (Accepting)

"It certainly looks like it" replied Avery to Raine's query as he took and gently shook her hand. "I'm Avery."

 

He would have preferred a slightly larger group than just the one student, but the purpose of the Instructor was to be on hand whenever they were needed. If this was the most convenient time for Raine to train her gift, he'd just have to roll with it. He watched as the two younger girls went on their way and then walked over to the door of the LGEC. Holding it open he looked back at his sole pupil.

 

"Well, we might as well get started then."

"Lead the way" Raine responded, directing her hand back towards the large warehouse.

 

It was certainly an ordinary building. One would expect a militaristic government facility where superhuman gifted beings were trained would be a giant shimmering glass tower or something similar.

On the contrary the warehouse looked particularly bland, Raine concentrated for a moment, trying to recall the images that had flashed earlier.

She still had at least 15 minutes before she would catch up to her precognition.

I guess that could work well if the instructor wants me to demonstrate... though I don't really think i'll show any outward reaction apart from closing my eyes Raine thought to herself, she absentmindedly started walking towards the building, the route that they were to take subconsciously guiding her steps.

Avery led Raine into the main section and headed back towards he had left his coffee cup on the benches. Picking it up he could tell it had gone cold, but coffee was coffee. Taking a sip he sat down on the bench, looking back over at his first student. 

 

"Am I right in assuming you are Raine Trapello? You were given special dispensation not to attend sessions because of the birth of your child?"

 

Now that he was starting to wake up a bit Avery could recall the notes made in the files. She was an Esper like him.

"Is that what they classified it as is it?" Rainse asked, a smirk rising to her lips.

"When they came to my door I was at 30 weeks so I basically told them to shove off. I wasn't going to attend a mysterious school when I had a baby to take care of... she started attending school this year so I figured now is as good a time as any," Raine explained.

"Though I still have my job, I won't be able to attened classes when I'm working," She continued.

Raine paused, she had started to ramble a bit. She let out a loud sigh and anxiously twirled her thumbs back and forth. She wasn't sure whether or not she was supposed to sit.

Avery didn't return the smirk. It seems Raine's power hadn't been classified as a priority. If the GMS had truly wanted her or her gift, then they wouldn't have taken 'shove off' as an answer. He just hoped she wasn't going to be one of those difficult people who liked to mouth off. They tended not to last long.

 

Sitting back so that his back was against the wall behind him he gestured vaguely at the bench he was sitting on.

 

"Why don't you tell me more about your gift? Some kind of precognition? No formal training, but I'd bet you've trained to make use of it in your daily life?"

"Bye, August! Be safe!", August's parents said to him, as he went to visit the LGEC for the first time. He had looked up and memorized the walking route online before he headed out, taking a map with him just in case; mostly to put his parents at ease. He still had a bit of trouble estimating how far away the cars were now that he had only one functional eye, so he only crossed roads when he was absolutely certain that he could easily make it to the other side walking. This slowed him down quite a bit, but he wasn't in much of a hurry anyway. When the principal of the school found out August had used his gift in school, in the vicinity of other students, the principal decided that August would be suspended until he had started taking classes at LGEC - for everyone's safety. This meant that starting tomorrow, he could go back to school. And he was looking forward to that.

 

At the end of his patient stroll, he arrived at a building that looked like a warehouse. He also saw two girls, who seemed to be just a little younger than himself, walking from that warehouse in the direction of the school. Fellow gifted students? That would be his best guess, anyway.

 

He made his way to the door and knocked, waiting for someone to open it.

"That's right," Isabella told the other girl, deciding not to tell her about the part where her mother had told her she'd needed to come down here. She saw no reason to go around sharing her family drama with everyone she met. Noting how the other girl evaded the subject of the Youtube video, Isabella decided to steer the conversation away from that as well. She certainly wouldn't have wanted to be caught on camera changing back from her Were form, naked. "So, are you coming back here after school today for lessons?" Although Isabella knew next to nothing about this girl, she would feel better not having to train alone.

 

Isabella then lifted her head suddenly as she heard footsteps. She turned her head towards the warehouse-shaped main building, thinking that one of the two adults might have gone back outside, but instead saw a boy about their age heading towards the door. "Hey there!" Isabella yelled, lifting one arm to wave at him.

Shortly after he had knocked the door, August heard a shouting voice, which sounded like it was from a girl about his age. It didn't seem to be from inside the warehouse, though, so he turned to look where it came from.

 

He then saw that the two girls he had seen earlier were the only ones close to where the sound had come from and one of the two was looking in his direction. It seemed she had seen him and wanted to greet him. He appreciated the gesture, so he smiled and waved back. He also tried to wink, but immediately got painfully reminded of the condition of his eye, causing his smile to twitch for a second, before stabilizing again.

 

"Hey!", he said. "Off to school?"

“Yeah. I’ve only been shown around a bit by the old instructor. Then they closed up until his replacement showed.” Meagan spoke while looking at the warehouse centre. At that moment another person showed up. A guy who seemed a little bit older than them. The girl greeted him and he returned. Meagan politely waved as well and smiled. It seemed like there will be a few young ones at the centre this time.

“Oh I didn’t really catch your name earlier. I was a bit distracted.”

There was a knock on the door. Avery sighed and got back to his feet. He wondered if every gifted in the community was going to show up that morning. 

 

"I'll be right back" he told Raine as he strode back towards the door. Looking through the windows he spotted a young blonde lad standing out on the street. This kid, he knew.

 

Opening the door he looked down at August Storm, an Electromancer who had been outed after he had assaulted one of his class mates according to the files. It seemed self control was one of the lessons it would be up to Avery to teach.

 

Opening the door he stepped back a little so that the lad could come inside.

 

"You don't have to knock" he explained. "This door is never locked."

"Hopefully I'll see you there then," Isabella told the other girl. She knew about the retired instructor; her mother had complained daily when she'd heard that the Center's old instructor had retired just a few days before Isabella's Gift had first manifested and had checked compulsively until she'd learned when it would be reopening again. As a result, she'd never been here before, though that was something else she didn't feel the need to tell the other girl. She'd learned over the course of her life that it was generally better to keep information to yourself unless you had to. "Like I said earlier, I'm Isabella. What's your name?"

 

The boy by the door yelled something in response to her greeting, and Isabella raised her voice accordingly to answer. "Yeah. Shouldn't you be heading there yourself?" Speaking of which, she should probably be on her way - she would probably need to hurry to avoid being late as it was.

After he responded to the greetings of the girl further down the road, the other one waved to him as well and the one who had greeted him replied, asking him if he shouldn't be heading to school too. He wanted to reply, but he then heard the door opening. A tall man came out and started talking to him.

 

"Excuse me", August said politely. "I was unaware. This is my first time coming here. I'll keep it in mind, though." He smiled to the man.

 

"So how exactly is this gonna go?" August asked. "And what's your name?"

 

"I'm August, by the way.", he quickly added as he realised he hadn't introduced himself yet. "August Storm. Nice to meet you."

"I'm Avery" he said, introducing himself for the fourth time in about ten minutes. "As you may already have realised, I'm the new instructor for the center. I'm guessing you are here for a session?"

 

Storm's file had mentioned that he was suspended from school for the time being. Avery guessed that his parents had decided to send the boy for training as soon possible in order for him to be allowed back on campus. 

 

"Come inside and we'll get started. You're a Mancer right?"

“I’m Meagan.” She spoke starting to head to her scooter again. “Guess he must be home schooled or something. Speaking of which we better hurry. Don’t know about you but my school has issues with people being late.”

Meagan eventually got to her scooter. She put her helmet on and got on the scooter.

“So I’ll see you after school?”
