Ghys and her niece move to Beacon Hills

Jackson has been acting a little weird lately.

Danny had expected the breakup with Lydia to cause some tension. If nothing else, it was up to Danny to handle future study sessions with them.

The desperate, naked ambition in Jackson's eyes wasn't new, either. It just seemed more fulfilled than usual. Danny thought he should be happy, but he was mostly worried.

Insecure Jackson was dangerous, but secure Jackson might be worse.

Besides that, though, it was a fairly normal day in Beacon Hills.

Easy classes, team practice, and the cute photographer...Danny couldn't complain.

There's a new girl in school today! She looks just a little lost.

Permalink

Lydia would normally be the one to greet new students, but she's a bit distracted lately.

Permalink

Danny will step in, since someone is asleep at the wheel.

"Hi, you seem new around here. I'm Danny Māhealani. Spelling won't be on the test, so I'll skip it, and you can just stick to 'Danny'. You are?"

Permalink

"Solvei Koskin! Nice to meet you. How'd you guess?"

Permalink

"People who live around here know the place. We're a very distinctive kind of town, if a little dull. Do you need help finding any of your classes?"

Permalink

"I would really appreciate that, yeah. The administration neglected to supply me with a map."

Permalink

"Sure. We're a fairly small school. I'll show you the cafeteria, gym, and so on, and you can give me your schedule so I can point out your classrooms along the way."

Permalink

"It's a deal!"

She shows him her schedule.

Danny is very helpful! 

He stops by his next class to inform his teacher that instead of learning about the legislative branch, he'll be introducing Solvei to their school. 

The teacher waves him off, and they go.

He shows her the music room-"I'm on the flute. If you play, I'm sure you can arrange the kind of program you want, the teacher is very enthusiastic."

He shows her the gym- "If you need an exemption from anything, it's easier to go through one of the student athletes or a coach than the gym teacher, trust me."

He shows her the cafeteria- "Just like in the movies, you'll have to learn all the cliques fast and then you're golden."

He shows her all her classes, and that's pretty much everything.

"If you don't need anything else right now, I can go to my next class while you deal with the administration, or just wander. Whatever. I'll probably see you at lunch, maybe give you the social primer."

Permalink

"Thanks! You've been really helpful and I appreciate it a lot!" says Solvei. "I think I'm covered for now. Enjoy your institutional education, and I'll see you at lunch."

Permalink

And he goes off to "enjoy" that.

Permalink

She is of course welcome to spend her time however she wants today. 

They prefer to give students a chance to run- that is, assess the school's  resources and curriculum- before they start classes.

Permalink

It's very welcoming of them! She spends her morning wandering around getting familiar with the layout and politely eavesdropping on assorted classes.

Permalink

Assorted classes will occur whether she is in them or not. 

There are of course other students, if she's interested in those. 

Some she might run into: the fidgety, slender boy who keeps glancing about warily, the distracted young woman with a vacant expression, the quiet boy with a camera on his desk, and the confident girl who answers her teacher's questions completely and a bit agressively. 

Permalink

She is definitely interested in other students. She'll smile at any who catch her eye.

Permalink

Fidgety and vacant are quite busy with being fidgety and vacant.

Permalink

Confident mostly focuses on class, but waves politely at the new girl. 

Permalink

Quiet doesn't wave, just smiles and gets back to his doodling. 

She can take a peek if she's sitting close enough. 

Permalink

She does glance at the doodles. They're right there, and all.

Permalink

He does fairly good linework for casual time-wasting. 

There is a tree with nesting birds, intermingled with an analysis of the green light on the docks, a lacrosse stick, using "Daisy" as its base, and what appears to be a swimming pool, drawn over the notes once they were written. 

He glances at her, surprised, but refocuses on his English teacher's rambling.  

Permalink

Solvei smiles at the doodler again, but doesn't try to strike up a conversation since she doesn't want to distract him excessively from his institutional education.

Permalink

He is educated in an institutional manner. 

Class ends, and he packs up. 

He catches up with her outside. 

"I guess the student handbook doesn't cover reading other people's stuff? It's kind of frowned upon around here."

Permalink

"Oh, I apologize," she says.

Permalink

"Not a big deal, I'll recover. I haven't seen you in class before, did you just transfer in?"

Permalink

"Yeah, my aunt and I moved here a few days ago. Nice town. Quiet. Of course, maybe it's lulling me into a false sense of security."
