Richard Mackenzie's POV


Words in italics indicate Richard Mackenzie and Morpheusa communicating telepathically.

Richard Mackenzie was on a mission.

It was the LEAST he deserved after such a hectic and stressful summer.

Richard, you did NOTHING during the summer.

EXACTLY. This wait is KILLING me!

So you need the rest BECAUSE -

I'm Richard Mackenzie.

How can a sexual TRYST be a REST anyway? Isn't that more of an exercise?

It's a rest for YOU. For ME, it's a rest for sore eyes.


The man trotted up the street.

"You're a complete ARSE."

"OH bugger it. Shut up Morpheusa."

The white tigress snorted, completely missing the sexual connotation before. No one could blame her though. A group of sparrows decided to fly above her head AT THAT moment. She glared at the boy chasing them, who gulped and decided to retreat for Mummy.

Stop BULLYING the boy, Morphy!

He shouldn't have scared the pigeons. Stupid fool.

Takes one to know one.

What does that tell me about you?


He stopped. St Sophia's College was JUST ahead.

"You know what? Let's do this. Why don't YOU give me a reason for me to NOT get into St Sophia's - Hi there!"

Richard waved at a gaggle of girls who were strutting into St Sophia's. They threw him a dirt look, prompting a "you bitch" comment once they disappeared.

"Because I don't want to be mauled by girls who are OBVIOUSLY not interested in you."

"Not a good reason, because they're a minority. Next?"

A human talking loudly to his daemon was a strange occurrence in Oxford. Some passersby stared at them, but a growl from Morpheusa was enough to prompt them to scuttle off.

Estelle walked back to St. Sophia's. She had gone out to check the market for apples, but was coming back empty-handed. She was nearly there when she heard shouting. She whipped her head around to see Richard Mackenzie and his daemon. She observed for a moment. "What terrible taste!" she said aloud, she didn't care if he had heard or not. Aelius sat on her shoulder, into her ear he whispered, "I don't know what I would do if you treated me like that." No Kidding, I would never. Aelius happily fluttered up to perch on her hat. She strode to St. Sophia's.

Richard Mackenzie's POV


Words in italics indicate Richard Mackenzie and Morpheusa communicating telepathically.

"Taste is subjective, not objective."

Richard Mackenzie was going to add a very loud BITCH at the end of the sentence but thought it was ungentlemanly. Besides, Morpheusa was yelling at him telepathically to shut up.

I WARNED YOU.

I shut up. I'm a good boy.


The white tigress was strangely, also quite annoyed with the bratty girl who stalked past them. How SHE argued with HER human was THEIR business, and not anyone else's. She didn't give two figs about custom and quiet daemons. SHE had a right to argue with her human if she wanted to!

"I'm going in. Shut up Morpheusa."

She couldn't care less now.

"No snappy retort? No RICHARD MACKENZIE GO KILL YOURSELF?"

"DO YOU WANT ME TO?"

"Oooh. Touchy touchy."

The Republican walked towards the gates and nodded at the old guard and his large, old, but friendly German Shepard daemon.

"Hi Walt! Just nipping in for a bit."

Walt The Guard nodded and unlocked the gates. Richard Mackenzie wasn't a man most people dared to cross, and he WAS an occasion visitor to St Sophia's and he HAD donated money to the research department here. Who was anyone to deny him entry to St Sophia's?

"Thanks mate!"

The man walked in as if he owned the place and ended up behind the brat who had called them disgusting.

"Oh GREAT."

Morpheusa resisted rolling her eyes. There was a large crowd of students ahead, and they wouldn't be able to shake off the girl until much later.

We're STUCK with that BRAT.

I've eyes too, thank you very much.


The daemon noticed her counterpart. A small nightingale which she could swallow whole if she wanted to.

Morpheusa, if you're hungry, you'll have to wait till dinner. I'm NOT letting you eat that daemon. You'll suffer from indigestion!

Shut up Richard.


Richard nodded at the girl with a contemptuous curl of his mouth and said nothing else. HE wasn't going to bother himself with conversation.

But the kid sure looked familiar.

OOC: Since Estelle knows Richard by name and face, what say you Richard knows her as well? Maybe not as close friends, but he may have known her parents through business, and hence her. Is that OK? If you don't want to, then it's fine. I was just wondering.

OOC: Sounds good. She going to have a little trouble piping up about it.

He's right behind us!

I know that, Aelius. Don't be paranoid.

His Daemon's eying me. I'm sure we've met.

Ignore her.


Estelle stood on her tip-toes to see the front of the crowd.

Aelius, can you see why there's such a big crowd?

The little songbird's eyes remained on the tigress.

I mean it, Estelle. They look familiar. I swear. Don't you remember?

You're ruffling your feathers over nothing.

Don't you realize that I think I've seen them before.

We live in a city. There's lots of people here.

Look at them, Estelle.


Estelle plucked the bird off her hat. She flipped him upside down and stroked his feathers.

You silly little bird. You needn't worry.

She couldn't turn around. Maybe she would. Was it too late? It didn't matter, she could remember his name.

She spun herself around. "Excuse me?" she said blankly. "Are you Richard Mackenzie?"

Richard Mackenzie's POV


Words in italics indicate Richard Mackenzie and Morpeusa communicating telepathically.

Of ALL the times he wanted his name to be remembered. Damnit why did SHE have to know who he was?

Great. JUST great.

YOU were going on and on about how GREAT you were. SEE WHAT HAPPENS?

Shut up Morpheusa.


"Yeah I am. I - Hang on - "

She seems familiar.

You HAVEN'T slept with her Richard!

OF COURSE NOT! DON'T BE A BIGGER IDIOT THAN YOU ALREADY ARE!


"Warder. Wardour. Waldent. Waldet. Walden. Your parents are the Waldens right? Or the Waldours?"

The Waldours are better than her. They've more class.

Must be the Waldens. Magisterium right? It shows in the breeding, IT SHOWS IN THE BREEDING!


Richard Mackenzie realised how rude he might seem with the few seconds silence.

"Well, yeah, I'm Richard Mackenzie."

Now we can't even be rude to her cause of that bloody venture we have over that kitchen appliance company. DAMNIT!

What?

Not good to piss off the Magisterium in the middle of a tricky venture. They can do fucked up things, and she's the daughter of some fucked up Magisterium people.


"Er, how do you do? You ARE a Walden right? I know your parents I think. Say, have we met?"

The crowd was absolutely REFUSING to move forward. MORE time needed to socialise. JUST great.

Morpheusa, manners.

The white tigress nodded at the nightingale-daemon in front of her but said nothing else.

Estelle placed Aelius back onto her head. "Yes. Estelle Walden."

Why are you talking to him?

Because I know him.

There's no reason to talk to him.

Shup up Aelius


"We met only once."

Estelle! Can we just stop talking to him! He looks like an urchin.


He was being an arse. I couldn't just let him, actually knowing him was a surprise.


She paused, and waited for the crowd to move. nothing.

"What brings you St. Sophia's?" she asked, knowing the answer.

Richard Mackenzie's POV


Words in italics indicate Richard Mackenzie and Morpheusa communicating telepathically.

"I'm in St Sophia's to discuss something with your Dame."

Richard Mackenzie was barely civil, but he was behaving. The unfinished part of his sentence also sounded like "discussing something with your Dame which little girls like you don't need to know."

The man shuffled on his feet and finally resigned himself to talking to Estelle.

Tell me when there's an opportunity for me to walk off.

TOLD YOU WE SHOULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN INTO ST SOPHIA'S IN THE FIRST PLACE!

Shut up Morpheusa. Don't let one rotten apple ruin our evening.

You're the most rotten of the bunch.


"I didn't know you studied in St Sophia's, Estelle."

I didn't know she QUALIFIED to enter St Sophia's.

Morpheusa, I didn't know you had such capability to bitch. Be nice.

Shut up Richard.


Role reversal, but her human couldn't care less. All he cared about was speeding towards the dining room, AND he had to AT LEAST put on a show of meeting the Dame to please Estelle. DAMNIT!

All this was running through his head though. His mouth was smiling slightly.

"Your parents didn't tell me about you going to St Sophia's. I haven't met them recently. Actually, I haven't met them since that charity ball this June. I hope they're fine."

Estelle answered coldly,"My parents haven't been the most involved people in my life. This is my second year here. They aren't people to brag."

They're not people to show any emotion. especially towards you.

"I'm sure they're fine, they're busy people. I frankly haven't seen them since this summer as well. What business do you have with the Dame? If you don't mind my asking."

Why do you care? It's probably some revolutionary bollocks.

I want to know, Aelius, perhaps its something interesting.

From him? No way! He's barely capable of holding an interesting conversation with a St. Sophia's girl

He's a republican? Maybe it'll be something different and new. Why would they even want to fight against the Magisterium.

Anyone who goes against the Magisterium is a fool.

Where did you learn that, my parents? Come on, Aelius, they're wrong about everything else.

Estelle, snap out of it! Why even bother with him? He's clearly a fool.

I KNOW he's a fool, I'm just not sure about every republican. I might as well learn something if they ever become a legitimate threat.


She smiled, with her ingenuine polite upper-class smile, waiting for an answer.

Richard Mackenzie's POV


Words in italics indicate Richard Mackenzie and Morpheusa communicating telepathically.

"What I'm doing with the Dame?"

OF COURSE I MIND! This is fucking ridiculous. Who the hell does she think she is?

I wonder what they're teaching in schools these days.


"Some Scientific stuff. Really complicated. They may need more funding so they naturally ask for my help. But I need more reports on the experiment I'm funding before I say anything further."

The unspoken conclusion to his sentence was that it was too complicated for little girls to understand and she should stop asking questions.

Now, Richard. Even that's a little too complicated for you.

Shut up Morpheusa. You don't understand what they say either.


The white tigress stared at the nightingale-daemon and rolled her eyes, but still tried to appear polite.

Someone behind him gave an unladylike push and he pitched forward. The Republican turned back and glared.

"WHOA, would you please STOP pushing - oh."

The man flashed a thousand watt smile at the beautiful but shy and sheepish girl behind him.

Is she older than 21?

Richard you're disgusting.


"Sorry about that. It wasn't my fault."

The jostling was increasing again, but at least the crowd was inching forward.

"Are you going to the dining hall, Estelle? I'm actually going to have to stay for dinner I think. I KNEW this was a bad time to come. Dinnertime is a nightmare."

Oh REALLY? WHO was the one standing in front of the gates -

SHUT UP MORPHEUSA!

Estelle smiled,"Your research sounds very enlightening."

And by enlightening, you mean crooked. Right, or perhaps suspicious.

Maybe he's doing research, Aelius. He's nervous is all.

That's because he's lying.

He is meeting the Dame, correct? She's terrifying. Besides, if he's lying, it's much more fun to expose him in this manner.

So that's the direction you're headed.


"As a matter of fact, I am headed to dinner. If you would care to join me, Mister Mackenzie, you are very welcome." she nodded in her hospitality.

Your parents taught you well. Lure them in, go in for the kill.

Shut up, Aelius. You make it sound so uncivilized.


"I apologize for the crowds, it's usually packed around this time." She straightened her skirt, "You would think it would be less crazy around meal time at a girl's school that a boy's, but its just the same. If not worse."

Richard Mackenzie's POV


Words in italics indicate Richard Mackenzie and Morpheusa communicating telepathically.

"What? Not research. I FUND research. I pay for them. I don't DO them."

You're not smart enough.

And you're good enough to hold the test tube?


"So colleges call me and I see which experiments interest me and which ones I should fund. That's all. The colleges update me on what they find out."

Richard Mackenzie took on the air of a patronising adult trying to explain ABC to a young child.

"If the experiment is a success, and if it's a new invention, I get a prototype, if it's an interesting theory, they send me a draft. That's all."

The white tigress rolled her eyes.

You don't HAVE to sound so important.

But I AM important. That's the thing.


The man scratched his head.

"And, er, thanks for the dinner offer."

We HAVE to accept it, it's rude if we say no.

I can sit with anyone else if I wanted to!

With this crowd, you'll be lucky if you can SIT anywhere.


"Yeah, sure I'll sit with you."

Terrible evening. Terrible.

TOLD you we shouldn't come.


"Do you know what they're serving tonight?"

Someone yelled in front saying that dinner was postponed for another 15 minutes.

Great, just GREAT.

"That sounds absolutely fascinating" Estelle mused, she had come from a long line of liers, she preferred to think of it as being cordial, and did so without batting an eyelash.

Just get rid of him.

He seems like a nice guy, might be worth my while to increase my own intelligence about the Republican mindset

That's refreshing and all, but I really don't think I can stand it.


"To be honest, I'm never quite sure." She smiled. "I leave it now as a surprise to break away from the monotony of school life." She looked to the crowd. "It's never too bad, I promise. You must explain more over dinner."

Richard Mackenzie's POV


Words in italics indicate Richard Mackenzie and Morpheusa communicating telepathically.

"The dinner in Jordan's is variable. It's usually crap, but they do make good pasta."

Morpheusa couldn't resist.

"They don't give us enough fish too. Or chocolate."

"Morpheusa, you can be given fish for 24 hours straight and still complain that you don't have enough. You can't really count properly so shut it."

The white tigress sulked and resumed being magestic and regal.

"I eat in St Sophia's occasionally, you're really lucky that your chefs are better. All they do in Jordan's is put tomato puree in everything vegetarian. Disgusting."

His daemon shuddered.

"But the portions in Jordan's are larger. It's not a good thing when the food is mostly crap."

The man yawned. Enough of the food story telling already, Morpheusa was getting hungry, which meant that he would be STARVING.

"So have you eaten in Jordan's before, Estelle?"

She smiled, "As a matter of fact, I have. My father took me along to Jordan years ago while he was visiting. I found the food quite appealing, although I believe they would serve only the best to a Magisterium official and his daughter. They couldn't afford to." Estelle laughed, trying to lighten the tension.

You shouldn't say such things to a Republican.

I can say what I please, Aelius.

You shouldn't be talking to him.

I believe that's my choice.


"I might have to agree with Morpheusa. There's never enough fish. Even here. You have such a charming daemon, Mr. Mackenzie."

I wouldn't say charming, she wanted to eat me.

People might complement you more if you shut your beak more.

I hardly ever....I only speak to you.

Well, obviously whatever you're doing isn't working.


Estelle grinned again, attempting to hospitable, "I sure hope you are hungry, I'm sure you'll like the food much more than Jordan's."

OOC: Feel free to make up whatever you like about why Estelle's parents visited Jordan's. xD

Richard Mackenzie's POV


Words in italics indicate Richard Mackenzie and Morpheusa communicating telepathically.

Richard Mackenzie was NOT pleased. So they could serve the Magisterium good food while HE got crap?

WHERE WAS THE JUSTICE IN THIS?

Morpheusa, on the other hand, grinned and puffed out her chest a little, all rudeness and animosity forgotten.

"I'm the charming half of my human. He got most of the idiocies thank - "

"Morpheusa hasn't learnt her manners properly either. When people praise you, you THANK them."

The both of them glared at each other.

"Funny, Jordan's doesn't roll out the red carpet for me when I visit - "

He rubbed his chin.

"Maybe it's cause I visit them too many times, anyway. Were your parents visiting Jordan's to check up on them or something? The scholars there never told ME about that. Or were they pumping your parents for cash like what they do to me when I visit them?"

The man chuckled.

"Dreadful bores most of them are."

"DINNER IS SERVED!"

The crowd surged forward like a wave and pushed Richard and Morpheusa into the dining hall. His daemon was FILLED with excitement, he was just annoyed as he followed Estelle.

ONE compliment and you're all puffy chest. What the hell Morpheusa?

Manners, Richard.


He stalked forward beside her and damned near sulked.
