Eml | 485 comments Caroline followed Dr. Norwich, attempting to keep up with her brisk pace. They walked to the opposite side of the main hallway, near the headmaster’s office. Standing outside was every faculty member and student leader. The sight made Caroline feel even more anxious because Gabby Solberg was biting her lip and slightly pacing with her arms crossed. She had never once seen the Head Girl look so panicked and lacking composure. Even more terrifying, she wasn’t speaking. When Caroline and Dr. Norwich approached the group, Gabby slightly looked up to acknowledge their presence but didn’t cease her pacing.

Headmaster Oxley gestured for them to come join him; he was standing slightly apart from the group near the main staircase. He was a middle-aged man, somewhere in his 50’s, with salt and pepper hair. “Princess Caroline, I apologize for interrupting your dinner and for not bringing this matter up sooner. But, a series of events has happened today and over the last couple of weeks in general that requires attention.” He rubbed his perfectly shaved chin. “I imagine you have heard about the…transgression between Mr. Harrison and Isobel Marino?”

Caroline nodded her head stiffly, unsure where this was going. Did he think she had something to do with the affair?

“Well, obviously, that caused us many problems. For starters, it left us without a girl prefect for year 11, which is why you are here. We would like to offer you the position.” Headmaster Oxley began moving his hands around as he spoke, “Now, I know you have already turned down the role several times, but I strongly encourage you to reconsider. The entire faculty and I agree that you are the best person for it and I’d like you to think about the benefits the position will give you. It will look very good on your transcripts for one thing.”

This made Caroline want to roll her eyes. Being a future Queen was enough to get her into any school she wanted. But, her shoulders relaxed now that she knew she wasn’t in trouble. “I suppose I could take on the extra responsibility. It would please my parents at least.” Later on she would wonder if it was the relief of tension that made her say yes, but there was no going back.

“Oh that is excellent news. Just excellent.” The headmaster’s head bobbed up and down enthusiastically.

“You’ve made a good decision Miss. Windsor,” said Dr. Norwich. She wasn’t smiling, but Caroline thought there was a small twinkle in her eyes. Something close to being proud.

Headmaster Oxley had to hide his disapproval over Dr. Norwich not referring to Caroline with her proper title. “Yes, well, on to the second matter. It appears that someone has informed the press about the misconduct and now, as you kids like to call it, the paparazzi run has begun early this year. Some have already made it on to the property. Now, security is trying to handle it, and I’ve already called the police, but nevertheless, we need to move the students to a safer location. As a prefect you well have to assist with this.”

He moved to address the entire group.

Eml | 485 comments Nia West stood staring at the front main entrance. This was one hell of a first day. Reporters were actually banging on the doors, trying to get in. It made her want to throw up how these people could want to take advantage of children. It didn't matter who they were or who their parents were, they all deserved to at least feel safe at home or school. She looked behind her to see if Steven((Oxley)) had decided what to do. She was surprised he had left the students pretty much unsupervised by any faculty. Though she supposed some of the kids because of their prestige had gone through this many times. There was another teacher standing close to the doors like her. A man, probably in his 20's or 30's. Very tall with dark hair. He looked dangerously close to opening the doors and confronting the paparazzi head on. She walked over to him,"Hi, I'm Nia West. I'm the new publicity teacher. So does this happen every year?"

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments Peter nodded with a sigh, as he gestured over to the reporters, "But never this bad," he responded, as he tried to flash her a comforting smile. He just imagined how it must feel seeing this on your first day, "I'm Peter Carson." He clutched his fists in anger from the paparazzi. He just couldn't stand this people. What low lives! he thought as he ran a hand through his gelled back brown hair. He couldn't believe people could do this to children. Invading their personally lives, "These people make me sick." He bit down on his bottom lips, as he resisted the urge to jump outside and confront them, "Nice to meet you by the way." He eyes fell upon hers as he tried to hid his anger with a soft smile towards the beautiful women in front of him.

Eml | 485 comments She smiled back at him."Nice to meet you too. Though I wish it were better circumstances. Do you know why they're being so aggressive?" No one had informed Nia of the reason for the open position at the school. It would be partially her job to help come up with a statement to address what was happening now.

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments "I agree.There was a sandal that occurred recently," Peter replied as he awkwardly rubbed the back of his neck, as he continued to explain, awkwardly, "On of our previous teachers had a inappropriate relationship with one of the our students." He couldn't believe that someone would do that with a student, especially Mr. Harrison. He was truly the last person he would ever expect to make that mistake.

message 7: by Eml (new)

Eml | 485 comments Nia gasped. Shocked to hear of a student-teacher relationship even with all the scandals she dealt with. She had no sympathy for them. The teacher was a pedophile as far she was concerned. "My goodness, is the student okay?"

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments "Yeah. For what I've heard," Peter responded, as he nodded once she gasped, "I just can't believe someone would think that was okay even for second. I mean your a role model for the kids. Like geez." He had heard of it happening all over, but he never thought it would happen at Adelgard. Adelgard he assumed was too high class for that, but apparently it wasn't.

message 9: by Eml (new)

Eml | 485 comments She shook her head,"I don't know how we're going to get them to leave if that's what happened. They'll probably try all night."

message 10: by Dudewheresthepie (new)

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments "They have to give up at one point," Peter sighed as he leaned his back up against the wall beside the door, "It's going to be a long night."

message 11: by Eml (new)

Eml | 485 comments "How do you usually handle it?" He did say this happened every year.

"Well, traditionally," came the voice of Patricia Norwich,"A teacher snaps and will either verbally or physically attack them. Sometimes both. Then Mr. Harrison steps in and points out all the ways we can send them to jail and sue them. But, that despicable man has thankfully been removed from our academy. I can't say that I wish he was here. Personally, I think we should shoot at them. This is private property after all." She was beyond done with adults taking advantage of innocent minors. Harrison was let off easy when he was sent to jail before she could get to him.

message 12: by Dudewheresthepie (new)

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments "I rather not have our whole staff to have a court hearing," Peter responded, as he stood up from against the wall, "I mean we have a school reputation to keep."

message 13: by Eml (new)

Eml | 485 comments Patricia scoffed. "Those kinds of things can be bought with money or made to disappear with a talented handler." She glanced at Nia."I hear you're talented in the second aspect."

message 14: by Dudewheresthepie (new)

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments "Your the new Publicity teacher?" Peter pondered, as he had heard about the girl that was filling in for Mr.Harrison. He tried to recall what he had heard about her, but nothing more than her being a child star came to mind.

message 15: by Eml (new)

Eml | 485 comments Nia nodded, wondering why he sounded surprised. "Well I have first hand experience dealing with it."

message 16: by Dudewheresthepie (new)

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments "What do you recommend we do?" Peter asked, as he ran another hand through his eyes, and he continued to here the banging on the door. The only plan he had was to ran outside and comfort him, but he tried to resist it as much as he could.

message 17: by Eml (new)

Eml | 485 comments "Honestly, I'm not sure. Normally, the press waits till they get someone outside, they don't actually attack doors. But, whoever is here must know that we wouldn't let the kids out and they also must not care much about the law." She bit her lip. "The police need to get here soon. These aren't just greedy people, they're bad people."

message 18: by Dudewheresthepie (new)

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments "I don't know how these people can live with themselves sometimes," Peter explained as he leaned his back up against the wall once again. Feeling the coolness of the wall, made him relax slightly, "I mean they really cross the like sometimes. Like know. I just- Can't stand them."

Eml | 485 comments Gabby half dragged, half shoved Grant and Alfie toward the teachers. She had put a code into the door, but it wasn't fully secure. People could get in from both sides if they knew the password.

"What in-" Dr. Norwich stared in horror,"Finley and Windsor got into a fist fight? What has come over you two? You're the closest friends in this school."

Gabby shook her head,"They didn't get into a fight with each other, they got into a fight with a senior."

"Oh. Of course." Norwich tutted. "Off to a good start as usual boys?"

"Um someone should look at them Trish. That poor boy's lip," said Nia.

Alfie's white shirt was now spotted with red.

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments "I could," Peter responded as he leaned down the the boy's level, and looked into Grant direction, "I'm disappointed in you, both of you." His frowning eyes fell on Grants as he shook his head, almost as if he was saying, i should of given you that dentition . Instead of letting him fly lose, "Who was the senior?"

message 21: by Eml (last edited Feb 27, 2014 10:02AM) (new)

Eml | 485 comments "Tyson something," said Grant.

"He's a real prick," added Alfie. If his face hadn't already been beaten up Norwich would have smacked the back of his head.

"Language Mr. Windsor."

"What's going on here?" came the concerned voice of Headmaster Oxley."Prince Alfred," Alfie scowled being called his full name,"Mr. Finley. Are you two alright?"

Norwich glared at the headmaster. This was not the time for sucking-up; they needed to be reprimanded.

A particularly loud bang on the door made Gabby yelp. It seemed to be getting louder. Shouts could now be heard.



"Did he just say Prince Alfred?"

"He definitely said Mr. Finley. That's the First Kid!"

"Open the door!"

The kids moved closer to Norwich and Carson, two of the few teachers they trusted.

"Are we going to be okay?" Gabby asked.

message 22: by Dudewheresthepie (new)

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments "Your going to be fine," Carson stated softly as he waved the children away from the door, "Just say speak quietly and more away from the door." The bangs started to get louder and louder. He couldn't contain himself anymore as he clutched his fists in anger, but he closed his eyes a took a deep breath, and with that he slowly unclenched and let out a deep breath. He knew he was going to break soon, but he needed not too. He needed to keep his cool. I will not go outside. I will not go outside , he chanted in his head.

Eml | 485 comments Right when Grant was sure the door was going to break open, the slamming stopped all at once. Shouts could still be heard, but they were in a different tone.


"What are you-"

"My camera!"

"You can't do-"

"What's happening?" Alfie looked at Gabby and Grant to see if they had any idea. They shook their heads. He rubbed his chin, wiping off some of the blood.

"Thank goodness. The police must have finally arrived," said Headmaster Oxley.

"I don't think that's the police," said Dr. Norwich. She was staring at the door in a questioning manner.

A deep voice was heard, shouting above the protests of paparazzi,"I could kill you bastards. Get away from my home! And stay away from my kids!"

"No way," said Grant and Alfie at the same time. They looked at each other and then rushed to the window.

Outside towering above cowering paparazzi, the ones who hadn't been thrown, was a 6'5 beast of a man. He had five o'clock shadow and hair just long enough to be tied in a small pony tail. He looked to be like the real life equivalent of Superman or Thor, who was Indiana Jones by day. Grant and Alfie hadn't seen him since their first year at Adelgard, when Alfie was just a 7th yr and Grant was an 8th year.

"No freaking way! D came back!" The boys shouted together.

"What? Are you serious?" Gabby joined them at the window, having stayed back at first.

"D" was the nickname for Lachlan Davenport, the school's social studies teacher. The Australian had been on sabbatical for the last 4 years. And he did not seem at all pleased to see the paparazzi welcome committee.

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments "Lachlan," Peter exclaimed as a soft smile fell upon his lips as he made his way to the window the see his old friend, and fellow teacher, "Seems that we have a solution to our problem." With that he felt the weight off his shoulders drop, and he started to relax again, and D cleared a portion of the paparazzi with ease.

Eml | 485 comments "We're going to get sued!" yelled Oxley. He ran and opened the front doors. The sight he was greeted with was Lachlan stepping on every camera he could grab. There were shards everywhere. "Lachlan stop that right this instant!"

"Oh shut ya gob ya bloody wombat! It's an absolute disgrace that you let these parasites attack Adelgard like this."

Alfie, Grant and Gabby came up behind Oxley. The boys were cheering,"Way to go D!"

Lachlan stopped smashing for a moment when he saw the kids. "Oy, what happened to your lip there Alfie?"

Alfie rubbed his chin again,"Nothin'. Just defending a girl."

Lachlan grinned back, clearly pleased."Well done mate." He leaned slightly to the side,"Is that little Gabby Solberg? You sure have grown up. I haven't been able to keep up on you since you aren't in the papers like these two worthless blokes." He nodded his head in Grant and Alfie's direction. Over the years, he had tried to keep up on how his students were doing. Especially the ones he had left at Adelgard without being there for them their entire school career. He sighed, realizing he couldn't give the paps the whipping he wanted to in front of his students.

Lachlan addressed the paps,"Alright, ya got lucky. You have till the count of 3 to piss off, or I get to beat ya senseless. 1..."

The remaining reporters didn't even bother to grab their things. Most of it was damaged anyway. They all just took off instead. Climbing the fence and continuing to run straight to their cars.

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments "Technically they were on private property. So we could sue too," Peter started to explain as he turned towards Lachlan with a grin, "This school has been boring without you," he explained as he held out his hand towards him with a smile. He truly had missed him.

message 27: by Eml (new)

Eml | 485 comments Lachlan happily took Peter's hand and pulled him into a hug. "It's been too long mate. Way too long. How come ya didn't give them a piece of your mind? Have ya gone soft without me here?"

message 28: by Dudewheresthepie (new)

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments Carson chuckled happily has he gave him a quick squeeze before pulling away, "I tried to keep my cool for one year," before he joked, "Didn't need another article about my 'famous author with anger issues' this year." He bright smile formed upon his lips, Lachlan was once of his favourite teachers that have ever worked on Adelgard and was glad he was back.

message 29: by Eml (new)

Eml | 485 comments "Nonsense. I loved the last one. Have it framed somewhere." He looked around. "So where is everyone? This place is far too quiet."

message 30: by Dudewheresthepie (new)

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments Peter chuckled as his first comment before replying,"All the students where escorted down to the safe room."

message 31: by Eml (new)

Eml | 485 comments He stopped walking, "Who's with them?"

"No one D. They left us all by our lonesome."said Grant. He was thrilled to see D back. Finally someone who had a sense of humor.

"Ya left a bunch of hormone crazed ankle biters by themselves?"

"Yes, well Steven seemed to think they could handle themselves." Said Norwich.

"Why are you listening to him?"

"Max stepped down two years ago. The board seemed to think he was past his prime." Trish pinched her lips. Knowing that Steven had gone behind Max Emerson's back campaigning for the job.

message 32: by Dudewheresthepie (new)

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments "Well, we do have the prefects keeping an eye on them," Peter began to explain as he ran a hand through his gelled back hair, once he realized what he said as all the that could of possibly occurred popped into his head ,"Shit. That may of not been a smart idea.

message 33: by Eml (last edited Feb 27, 2014 08:35PM) (new)

Eml | 485 comments Dr. Norwich glared at Alfie and Grant,"Yes, well these two seem to be the perfect examples of the flaw in the plan."

Gabby bowed her head feeling guilty. Clearly she had failed her role-models.

Lachlan patted her shoulder,"Don't you worry, these two have been trouble since even before they came here. If I remember correctly, it's why we're stuck with them. Separating them was a good idea, how much trouble could the rest of the school cause without being instigated by them?"

"Still, we should probably hurry," said Nia. She had been a little awestruck by Lachlan. He had to be the most gorgeous man she had ever seen. Though Carson wasn't too bad himself. At least Adelgard has pretty things to look at.

message 34: by Dudewheresthepie (new)

Dudewheresthepie (supernaturalboitch) | 242 comments "We should let the kids out of the safe house," Peter stated as he heard Nia, speak up for the first time in a while, "Alfie, and Grant will always cause trouble. No matter where or who their with."

message 35: by Eml (new)

Eml | 485 comments "It's a gift." The two said at the same time shrugging their shoulders.

Nia tried to hide a smile. "I'll take them to the nurse you guys go on ahead."

((Just go to the safe room))

Denver -writes poems drinks wine- Alexandra walked through the halls, twirling a finger through ehr hair, humming the lyrics to a new song she was writing. It was going to be good, she could feel it

message 37: by [deleted user] (new)

"Where is she?" Monica asked, looking at Olivia and indigo.
"She needed food she said." Olivia replied. Playing with the edge of her American flag shirt.
"Let's check in there." Indigo pointed to a large hall.

♣ ѴĪѴΛĿDĪ  ☽ Oƒƒ ωιтн тнєιя нєα∂ѕ! ☾  (midnightdeluge) The empty hallway felt rather eerie in the middle of the night. Luna's steps were slow and unrushed as she made her way along the corridors; finger tips brushing along the walls, a slow smile curved her lips as a song suddenly came to her mind. She began humming quietly to herself, a slight bounce suddenly entering her steps until she was nearly dancing around the hall. Soon her voice began bouncing off the walls, each word she sang echoing back to her ears. "You were sorta punk rock, I grew up on hip hop/But you fit me better than my favourite sweater, and I know..." Her voice drifted off into a hum once again, being careful not to alert any of the teachers she was there. But once again she lost herself in the song, her words dancing about through the room. "I will love you 'til the end of time/I would wait a million years/Promise you'll remember that you're mine/Baby can you see through the tears."

(view spoiler)
