    "Eh, there's no harm in it." Samantha looks over the German. "She might be sending the right signal herself."
    "Probably not, this doesn't seem like a normal school after all. More like an institution. Doesn't mean she has to be extremely formal. It's only the first day."

    "Nice to meet you as well, Eisen. So..." Samantha pauses.

    I have no idea what to ask these people.

    "What's your favorite type of cheese?"
    ...Cheese? Okaaay.

    "Um... I like Bleu Cheese, and Havarti. You?"

    "Not many kids here have."
    "I doubt many of us will, either."

    Eisen eyes went wide. She seemed dumbfounded. Her grip of the doll tightened.

    What do I say?

    "How should I know?"

    Nobody told me they'd ask questions like this! How do I answer!?

    "Just... tell them the truth, I guess."

    "I..." Eisen mumbled. "I don't know. I've actually never eaten cheese."

    Having caught her breath and got back some of her energy, Vivian slowly stood up. "Greetings peeps," she said out loud, introducing herself to whoever might hear, "I'm Vivian P. Baad, so pleased to meet all of you. I know we shall all have an exciting year here at Arcadia!"

    Skye shrugs. "I just got here, so I kinda missed the round-robin intro group hug session. Let me guess, you're Mr. Grumpypants?"

    "I guess so. Anyway, nice to meet you, ...?" She states, fishing for his name.

    "Are you lactose intolerant?" Vivian asked, dumbfounded. How can someone have not had cheese? "Vegan?"

    Eisen smiled warmly. "Hello, Rosemary. I hope we'll get along."

I will simply have to accept whatever punishment the institute seems fit to give me for my tardiness.

    "Well then, come along miss, we can't very well have a little girl wandering around alone, I will see to it that you are delivered to you proper guardians immediately!" Marko declared, grabbing ahold of Eisen's hands and leading her towards the steps.
    "But I just got here," Eisen protested, clearly confused by this turn of events. "I was asked to come here. Required, even." She held up her acceptance letter. "See?"

    Selma sighed as she reached the top of the stairs, stretching her arms above her head as she looked around at her classmates, several of whom had been complaining about the walk up the stairs. Shaking her head, she thought 'Bunch'a babies, whining 'bout a little hike. They'd never last a day on tha family farm.'

    Strolling into the crowd, she looked at her new classmates, smiled, raised a hand in a wave, and said "Howdy! Name's Selma St. Johns! Pleasure ta meet all of ya!"

    "Doesn't that kind of defeat the spirit of the hike?" Vivian asked. If the journey didn't matter she could have just taken a helicopter here. Or something more advanced...

    "Axel, Axel Rotor. Yeah it is a crappy name. Your name?" :He looks to her. She was pretty. But he was a breast man.:

    "Hi Viv! Good to see you. I'm Skye."

    She asks the group, "Does anyone know anybody else who has gone here? My Top-Search for Arcadia came back with surprisingly few hits."

    Sloane loomed over the students, soaking in the fruits of their conversations.

    He wanted to puke already.

    "Goddamn, this is boring."

    Compared to running around for his life, of course. And the daily work at his shop. A good kind of boring, for the most part. This stagnant atmosphere wasn't illegal or life threatening, which was more than he could say for some of these people's personalities.

    There has to be some kind of law against being so dumb. There has to be.

    "Naw that name is too long, I'm King" he told Skye, playing with his chain

    They keep asking these strange questions! This is all so confusing.
