Sengoku Horizon

Look towards the Horizon

The Warring States Period: Fierce warlords fought for control of Japan, and many would perish. When a warrior falls, where does the passion they once held go? Possibly into something dear such as a favorite weapon or heirloom. These heirlooms have been labeled as “relics”, and those that carry them are labeled as “Scions." Recently more and more of these special relics have been activating, signaling the start of a great change as ancient power meets the modern world!

Now For The Local News, 06/01/2018 The Chinese delegation have now arrived at the city of Edo. Making friends and learning about Edo Culture is their current aim! In other news it is also time for the school dance event! Please bring your characters along!

Was that door honestly a bathroom? I know I didn't see shower rooms going down the hallway like in a university... Oh, forget about it, I'll look at it when I get back.

Viola descended the stairs leading to the lounge area she had passed by earlier on her way up to unload her belongings. Mika had pointed out a few minutes ago that this area had a cafeteria in it that would still be open to serve evening partakers like herself. What she didn't explain and what Viola ignored herself earlier while passing though, besides the size of the area, was all of the available activities for students. The variety was unbelievable to her; you could work out, lounge out, pig out, or even swim. The choice was yours. For Viola, at least for now, she decided she wanted to eat as her stomach reigned her in from her amazement to remind her that it was still there and needed food to negate the hunger from not eating for several hours.

She approached the cafeteria and was impressed with the space and selection. At this hour, due to the number of people whom had come before her, the choices were a bit smaller than what she had assumed should be there, but regardless, was able to get a decent meal to satisfy her until morning. The staff working the back area helped Viola with locating what she needed and made sure she was satisfied with what she had.

She departed the cafeteria with a smile and thanked the workers for their assistance and sat in the heart of the lounge to start eating her long awaited meal. The televisions in this area were all news stations typical of most sports bars and sit down restaurants; silenced with the subtitles on for interested parties to understand what was going on. Most of the conversations going on were experts talking about the stability of the Shogunate with varying opinions based on which station you frequented. One or two were tuned into weather channels, but again, nothing interesting, just a forecast of rain in the future. Typical, as Viola would be starting Guard duty soon and needed to prepare if rain were a constant problem.

After seeing the forecast, she brought her attention back to her food as she began eating. For a bit, her mind cleared and she drowned out the rest of the world to focus on what was in front of her. For the first time since she arrived on campus, she was at peace, and knew everything would be alright. It would be a lot better, however, on a satisfied stomach.

The automated doors opened as a student sporting a somewhat jacket-less Elite uniform. The evening had gotten to the last high point of heat before it settled into the evening. She returned into this late evening mostly from doing paperwork filling at the office and promptly taking a nap. Plain water and tie didn’t do caffine justice after waking up to hunger. She stretched her arms in hopes of snagging a bath when the smell of late night dinner had her make a u-turn for the snack bar.

She greeted the student run operation with a wave and piled on a plate of salad and some sandwiches that would have not lasted another day on the display shelf. A bowl of muso soup took up what space the plate had left and it was off to finding a table. Tables were plentiful though but some company would be nice. As soon as she found a table with a fellow dinner member did she head away to get some late coffee from the cafe nearby. Once achieving this did she then formally return to the plate and guest.

“Hi, sorry to not say anything. Mind I join ya?” She asked a rather fresh looking face in the scenery. After asking this did Suishoku took her seat and quickly said a brief thabks for the meal and started picking away at her meal of pretty much soup and salad and half sandwiches.

Viola had taken a few bites into her satisfactory salad, sitting in silence, hardly paying attention to her surroundings. She contemplated taking her phone to check on things back at home, but before her thoughts were finished, a young woman made her way to the table she had sat at and requested a seat. With her mouth momentarily full, she simply gestured her open hand and nodded her head while attempting to finish the bite off so she could speak.

As she was finishing, she noticed something different about the girl's uniform than her own or many others. It had... accents on it. In her brief reading of the school and talking with her escorts earlier, she figured out quickly that this girl wasn't just a random student, but an elite student of the school, one that had a reputation great enough to give her a strong ranked position.

Viola swallowed her bite and began to speak to her, smiling at the opportunity to meet another new face.

"Sorry about that, you caught me with my mouth full. I wouldn't mind some company."

She stopped momentarily to clear her throat, a side effect of trying to swallow her food too quickly. Afterward, she spoke back up to finish her thought.

"My name is Konishi Viola, what's your name?"

To signify a bow, she lowered he head momentarily and raised it. With what words she spoke to indicate her sitting at the table, the girl seemed sweet, something contrary to what Viola expected from an elite student.

She is definitely an elite, but her attitude from what I've gathered is far different than what I expected. I thought they'd be hardened warriors, not seemingly care-free students. Maybe Edo is different than what I thought.

Viola paused her thoughts to wait for the name of the girl before her.

She looked up from stopping to test her hot coffee to slightly bow her head a little to Konishi. The girl looked nice and, most of all, hardly peeved from her intrusion a moment ago. The coffee was set down for a sandwich bite before wiping her mouth to speak more directly with her dining companion. “Yuubae Suishoku,” she greeted as if meeting a friend from yesterday. “Your day went okay so far?” The question leading itself as her hands slowed down to take her time while trying to learn what she can about this fresh face.

Konishi Viola, that’s not a likely mix of naming conventions. This did seem weird but just not usual. There also seemed to be that bright eyed and bushy tailed feel for a hard worker. A quick glance at her basic meal set up. A light dinner choice compared to her plate that would right at home for noontime lunch. She gave the girl a breath before going back and forth on eating a little and speaking a little. Today has left her than hungry than usual. “Long day, hmm? Well, we’ll just have to try keeping cool this summer. Any plans so far?”

Viola took another small bite of her salad as Suishoku introduced herself and, surprisingly, jumped straight into small talk. This was a bit different from her encounter earlier, so with little time to react, she nodded her head, signifying that, though it could have been better to have not left home at all, it was still a good day so far. She swallowed the bite she had and added to the nod.

"Indeed, it'd been quite a busy day, but good. How's your day been?"

Viola attempted to reciprocate the question initially asked as a courtesy and out of respect. She didn't want to offend an elite student, though at this point, she didn't think she would do so. If Suishoku were the type to be a jerk, it would have shown the moment she sat down. With internal relief, Viola dismissed her earlier thoughts wondering about elites being strictly tough men and women and made assumptions that it probably depended on a number of factors like most things in life.

Sui then spoke up asking about her plans and making a small jab at keeping cool in the summer. The heat was already starting to pick up, making the move that much harder, but thank goodness, the worst was yet to come and the escorts did help with things along the way. Viola again cleared her mouth and responded.

"It has been very long. I've been awake since early this morning packing and making my way here. Today is my first day in Edo."

She then took a moment to contemplate her plans. There hadn't been a lot of time to think about what she wanted to do in the short term. Her answer seemed to fall a bit short as she shrugged her shoulders and presented a look on her face to reflect her lack of plans.

"As for plans, besides classes, signing up for track tomorrow and my first meeting with the other guard students, I'm not sure. The only thing I can do is follow my gut and see where it takes me."

With her final sentence, Viola's smile returned to her face, content with her answer to see how things went and make plans based on how her experiences went. She did have an ultimate goal while at Edo, but rather than focus on just that, she needed to know what smaller goals she could accomplish first to get there, yet she hadn't been presented any yet. Her attention shifted then to Sui, whom Viola expected to have been through all sorts of events to place her as an elite student. She gave her full attention to her as Viola lowered her fork into her salad and rested her arms on the table behind the bowl.

"If I'm not prying, how difficult was it for you to become an Elite? I imagine on my way to my ultimate goal, I'll have to reach that point eventually, so I want to be prepared if I can be."

Viola was hoping that her question wasn't too direct or obvious. She knew that the Ikko had raided Edo not too far into the distant past and was possible her promotion was based around that. If it was, and she was responsible for bringing up bad memories, it would make Viola feel horrible, but let her realize that reaching such a goal would be an enormous amount of work, possibly including loss. The thoughts swirled in her mind as she awaited Sui's answer.

“Lectures and review at the office I watch. I don’t think I’ll be ready to do classes that other instructors have already done or covered,” she smiled but sighed and drank her coffee. She didn’t want to do any classes that involved basic first aid as that’s knowledge most students have to gain anyway throughout their time here. Maybe a field carry or something. She wasn’t sure what to teach if ever asked upon.

“Mmn, yeah. Got the fan and windows open to cool off. You’ve been traveling all day though?! Where are you from? The dorms has a bath house you can use if you don’t want the shower in your room.” This girl really was that new! It was also a somewhat forgettable fact that students continue to be enrolled throughout the year than a standard spring enrollment. Scions newly discovered was one thing but that was just that. Traditional students were picked up now and then too although this could be chalked up to availability when someone is ready.

Rather than press to ask if Viola was a Scion or Traditional, the surprise gradually faded off to other topics. Viola had some decent goals so far for tomorrow with Suishoku nodding in approval. “Those would be ideal. You can visit the club building for ideas as well. The third floor houses mostly the teacher’s office.” She tossed in having a mind to just be light on information than floor then too much for their first night. Suishoku ate away to sample and stir her miso soup after its contents sat too long.

“I suppose you were expecting a drill sergeant?” An eye was closed as though slightly wounded for saying so. The uniform did have the marks of an Elite student and mostly worn when doing her office work. Suishoku kept her jacket loose and the plain white blouse under nearth as well to cool off after today’s work. Their question left her a need of a pause so she drank more of her soup to think over. For someone that wasn’t expecting to become one and how the group training was to survive in a haunted forest, it could have been easy. But that would undermine the whole part of being Elite. From what she understood of her own selection, Elite students were recognized by their skills and ability in the end so it wasn’t as easy to ask to become one and received it the same day.

“Hmm, if I have to discourage you then I would suggest to not actively want to be an Elite.” The miso bowl was brought up again and set down finished. Suishoku tried to answer honestly andnless foreboding to adopt a more counselor approach; a suggestion. “The offer will arrive at any given time but you won’t be seeing this given to first years or toward people that hardly spent enough time here as a student. With that said, what are your ultimate goals in mind? Accepting to be an Elite could alter a few things.”
