    Default Don't Look Back IC

    The end of summer brings with it the winds of change, and the lazy late summer days gone, so begins the return to the endless studies of academia.

    As the auspicious (or inauspicious, depending on how you view education) days of the start of term begin, you find yourselves, for one reason or another, in the Student Union. This massive building houses one of the many eateries, as well as a massive computer lab, and the general bookstore. There are several meeting rooms, and a conference hall, and today, it is the focus of Freshman orienteering. Here, new students are given their room assignments, and every half hour, a volunteer from the student government helps a small group of freshmen find their dormitories and gives a brief tour of some of the main halls where their classes will be.

    As you go about your business, there appears to be some kind of commotion outside, though not all of you are in a position to see what it is.

    As Lissa tried to look at what the commotion was, her "aide" stood between her and the commotion in general.

    Hey, I want to see what's going on! Lissa complained.

    "I'm sorry, Lissa I can't let you do that." He said keeping on high alert.

    Anna had headphones in and so was barely aware that a commotion happened. She was listening to metal it wasn't her favorite but someone stole her favorite music. That person was going to pay for what they did as soon as she found him. So she went about her business. I think I'll get some pizza. Thinking a supreme pizza with no mushrooms. Thank god I have enough scholarships to be here with any food i want to eat the others didn't have a chance and I'm sure they regretted ever applying for them.

    Susan had been working in the Computer Lab when she was alerted to several loud noises outside. Hoping that no one was hurt, she rushed to the scene to see what had happened and if she had the capacity to help.

    When whatever was going on outside began, Victor was simply sitting in the lounge with some of his friends, chatting about the events of summer. A quick message to the group chat from Joe however gets everyone's attention.

    Hey everyone, you might want to come outside...

    Some more specificity would have been nice, but the small group of friends head outside to see what Joe was talking about. It's too early in the year for any sort of event, which ruled out most things. Was it something bad? Victor tells one of the others to shoot a message back and to keep an eye on their stuff while the rest of them went to check things out.

    "Excuse me, pardon me," Victor says, waving a few of his fellow students out of the way. It was the worst kept secret that the Declan family had made a major donation to the university (even by Harvard standards) that had funded additional equipment and faculty for several of the departments, and while Victor tried to not revel in his family's ability to make life easier, he certainly wasn't above using said influence and name to... encourage a desirable outcome.

    As the grouping of people becomes more clustered and harder for everyone to move past, Victor gives up on finding Joe in the crowd. Instead, he looks around for someone who had a better sense of what was going on, maybe campus police, or an RA, or a residence life worker. "What's all the commotion about?"

    Why am I doing this. Why am I doing this. Why am I doing this.

    Even though summer was nigh-over and the temperature in the air had cooled significantly, Zack was still sweating. Freshman orientation was in full swing here at the university, and for whatever bone-headed reason he'd volunteered to work in the information kiosk, passing out pamphlets and answering trivia questions to confused freshmen. Which meant sitting in the middle of a big crowd and smiling continuously until his face hurt and answering a lot of questions that terrified him because he just knew that sooner or later one was going to come up that he wouldn't have the answer for and gaaaaaahhhhh.

    "When does the next tour group leave?" "Sh-should be in the next ten minutes or so, sir."

    "Could you point me to the dorms?" "The way's a little complicated, but, um, here's a map. Er, take two, we have plenty."

    "Excuse me, could you tell me what's going on outside?" "What do you mean?"

    Jenny was never one for staying still, especially during such a commotion.

    "Huh? Hey, what happened?"

    Suddenly, a random thought passed through her mind.

    What are the odds of that... then again, it can't hurt.

    Walking through the parking lot, with the metal music I her ears, she didn't hear the van, even though it was backfiring and sputtering and then it stalled out as it managed to stop in a parking spot. As the engine died, it let out one more mighty bang, and smoke poured from the engine, which was probably now dead. Not able to see anything through the smoke, you hear the door squeal as it opened, and you hear the metal groan as it was shut with more than just a little force. As the smoke begins to clear, you can just make out the outline of someone in the smoke, and then fanning hands blow away enough smoke to get a glimpse of a girl trying to find the release for the engine compartment in the rear of the van.

    Een though she didn't know what was going on, Susan arrived before a massive crowd poured out of the union. Apparently a vehicle had broken down, because a large gout of black smoke was pouring up into the sky. As you hurry to the scene, you arrive in time to see a young woman tring to wave smoke away from the rear of the van, and another girl is standing nearby.

    There are a lot of great series where the protagonist just appears out of nowhere on a clear, cloudless day.

    Today is one of those days.

    As smoke begins to clear from the rear of a broken down old VW van, you see a red-headed girl, wearing a faded old Batman T-shirt, what appears to be military combat uniform jacket tied around her waist, sporting jeans and genuine combat boots. The boots are untied, hanging open, and to complete her look, you see the trailing edge of what looks like a tattoo on her upper arm. And the way the smoke just parted, perfectly circular to give you this view? It can't be simple coincidence.

    Try as he might, Lissa's guard couldn't keep her from finding out what was going on, though, he did push her to the side when what sounded like three short barks of a gun went off. But the chatter came through the crowd. Just a van breaking down. Nothing that exciting.

    With the full respect a man in his position gives his charge, the guard reaches a hand down to help Lissa back to her feet, expressing his concern for her well being. After all, the backfire may have been planned, and he checked to make sure she really was alright. Over his shoulder, Lissa could see a column of smoke, marking the spot where the "exploded van" was.

    With the massive press of students around him, as well as one frantic looking sales clerk, Victor was not able to make much headway.

    The clerk calls over to him. "Hey, everything's alright. Just a van breaking down. No one's hurt."

    Of course, there is still that cloud of smoke...

    As you get up to go see for yourself, it looks like people are starting to come inside. Some of them are muttering about damage to the environment, and how that unsightly heap looks next to all the sparkling BMWs and Audis.

    And then, outside the large glass entryway, above the heads of everyone, you can see the small plume of smoke. Ostensibly, the vehicle damaging the environment.

    At least it got me here.... Looks like it won't be going anywhere anytime soon though... She lets the over to the engine compartment close, then gives at a good shove to get it to latch in place. Then she realizes she is being addressed and turns to look up at her. Jenny sees that the girl has dazzling, bright green eyes.

    She took off her headphones as she was the van. Anna knew she found love at first sight and she will try to stop anyone from taking it from her. My name's Anna I would be willing to help you and I know a mechanic that might be able to repair your van. if the van is beyond repair she was going to get another van of the same make and model for her.

    You make your way across campus. All around, other students are unloading furniture from cars and trucks. Bags and mini fridges are being hauled up into dorms. Your escort guides you through the chaos, and brings you to your new home away from home. You find that many of your things have already been brought in, and await you to arrange them to your satisfaction. There is, so far, no sign of a roommate.

    Victor makes it out to the parking lot and finds himself looking at the burnt frame of a VW van, behind which, he hears a few girls talking. As he rounds the van, he sees a girl with red hair and wearing a t-shirt and jeans. She is talking to three other girls, about the state of her van, and emphatically denying any attempts at getting her van towed somewhere to have it fixed because as she says as you approach, I can do it myself.

    That voice... You aren't sure... But it sounds so familiar....

    Then she turns at hearing you approach from behind, and you see her eyes. It is her. Jessica. Here. Now.

    "Oh thank goodness that no one was hurt. S-so, uhm what's your name?" At this point she didn't think that she could simply back out of the conversation or turn and walk away and it would be awkward not to talk.

    Does she speak fluent English? Lissa asked raising an eyebrow.

    Some people might wonder how the escort had so much info on the person in question. But Lissa knew.

    Knew that connections could get you all sorts of information.

    "S-sorry, I'll go check it out myself." Zack stammered, getting up from his chair and making his way through the crowd as fast as possible.

    By the time he'd broken through the crowd, there was already a small group of girls (and one guy) clustered around a backfiring van and the redheaded girl who seemed to be the owner. She was dressed in some sort of modern grunge and clearly didn't care what anyone saw, but she was... pretty. Really pretty. That was the first thought that came to Zack's head as he saw her. His face was getting red. Why was it doing that?

    "Um, excuse me," he said, speaking towards the driver, "Do you need help with your car? I'm helping out with orientations, um, and I have campus security on speed-dial. We could get somebody to tow your car, er, if that's what you need."

    Its Jessica. She opens the side door of the van and pulls a large satchel out, slinging it over a shoulder.

    "I am sure she speaks enough English to get by. As to fluency, miss, I am sure the is a cunning linguist around here somewhere..." The man chuckles to himself at that.

    Having slung her bag on her shoulder, the girl heaves an exasperated sigh at yet another offer to tow her van.

    No! Look, I am sure you all mean well, but it is perfectly fine where it is for now. Now would someone please point me in the direction of Orientation? I am late enough as it is.

    The innuendo clearly flies over Lissa's head.

    It doesn't matter if there is a cunning linguist in a nearby room. Unless they end up moving in here unofficially I suppose. Lissa replies.

    "Sorry. Bye." Susan walked as fast as she could back to the computer lab. She had really stuffed up that social interaction. To take her mind off of it, she was planning to return to her dorm room after taking her bags from the computer lab.

    Victor stops for a second, a look of 'Am I looking at what I think I'm looking at' on his face. "Jessie? What are you doing here?" Smooth. That's how you greet a girl you haven't seen for a decade? "Um, I could show you toward orientation and have some friends fix up your van, if you would like." And now you're just being presumptuous!

    "S-sorry!" Zack yelped, shrinking backwards at the firm refusal. His face was even hotter now. Was he blushing? Oh, this was so embarrassing. Then his brain finally wrangled down the second part of what she'd said, about orientation. "Um, orientation's right here in the Student Union building. The next tour's leaving in... five minutes or so?"

    Not going yourself?

    "Never mind, miss. IF there isn't anything else I can do for you, the school frowns upon us being here for long."

    As Susan begins walking back to the computer lab, she finds that she is walking in the same direction as the crowd she just tried to leave.

    You'll leave my van alone. I'll take care of my van on my own. Just like I've been taking care of myself.

    Jessica sighs again, this time, the sound seems to be more cleansing than frustrated.

    I don't need a tour, I just need my packets and information, and sign my documents. A few steps pass in awkward silence.
