Reeve finished with his training for the day, luckily it was an easy day with the instructor so he wasn't too tired. His brother came running by pushing him out of the way to go sit with father in some sort of meeting, something about a crop deal. Being the 3 son of a Duke in a small land didn't mean that mush really, as long as he was educated and trained and as his parent told him, finds a wife of suitable standing in the lands is all that matter. Well all that Reeve concerned himself with was hanging out in the village, goofing off with his friends and helping and getting to know the people, So he changed into his leather armor and jumped on his horse and headed out to meet his friends at the tavern. He arrived a little early and they weren't here yet, maybe stuck with extra chores he thought as he went inside, waving and saying hi to a few of the people he knew.

Katelyn placed a mug of ale in front of Mr. Trencher, who placed an extra coin in her hand as a show of gratitude. She smiled sweetly at the old man as she grabbed her tray and navigate the busy tavern. 

She tossed the coin behind the bar, into a large jar where she stores any extra money she earns. Her brother called out to her "Hey Katy! The son of the Duke is here, go get his order would'ya!"

Katelyn let out a sigh, "If he's here than all his friends are sure to follow" she thinks to herself, before scooting her way through the patrons towards him. She stood in front of an open table and gestured to him to sit down.

"Good to see you again! So what are you drinking Lord Hankin?" She tried to sound as proper as she could.

Please, how many times must I tell you, it's just Reeve, calling me Lord makes me sound like an old man and I will just have an ale, don't know when my friends will even be here" He looked at Katelyn, smiling at her and thinking of how beautiful she was.

"So tell me Katelyn, how is your day going, anyone been giving you any trouble lately? you know if anyone does I will talk to them, straighten them"

Katelyn tilted her head to the side, smiling back at the young Lord.

"Aw, you know I like getting to talk all proper, and you're the only one who will even understand it Reeve. And naw, everyone is nice so far, Mr. Trencher even gave me an extra coin!" She said playfully, before sliding through the other patrons to bring him back a wooden mug filled with cool ale.

He takes the mug from her smiling, and not wanting to be outdone by Mr. Trencher he made sure to give her extra coin himself.

"You have a few minutes to sit with me?" He asks her kinda shy like, right about now wishing he was more outgoing like his brothers were.

"I mean if you're not too busy"

Katelyn looked around the tavern which was quite lively. Her mother was playing a harp near the hearth, and her father and brother were bringing plates of roast meat and bread to hungry patrons. She noticed that all the drinks are still being drunk, and she could use a moment off her feet.

"Of course I can, let my brother run some drinks for once." She laughed, holding her skirt flat as she sat down next to Reeve.

"That will do him some good for once, let him run around. So how have things been, we haven't really talked too much before and it feels like I know less of you than anyone else in the village"

Someone across the tavern drunkenly calls Reeve's name out waving to him, Reeve waved back to the old man.

"Sorry about that, can't seem to go anywhere these days without people yelling my name out, drawing attention to me. Just once I would love to go out and not be the Duke's son, experience a night on my own, as my own man. Maybe even ask a gil out sometime"

He looks at her when he makes that last comment, staring into her eyes, smiling

Katelyn giggled as he gives her brother some guff, and smiles back at him as he laments his situation.

"Only nobles could find the idea of being a nobody attractive. But I suppose it's different for a man, needing to be independent." She said, teasing him a little but knowing as a woman she would never really be able to understand complexities such as he was thinking about.

The sound of her giggle makes his heart jump in his chest.

"So tell me Katelyn, what do you like doing for fun? What do you do when you aren't busy here with your family?

He rests an arm on the table as he turns in the seat to better face her.

"Oh, me? I usually try to help the old ladies clean around their houses and shops. Otherwise I'm in the garden I planted behind the tavern." She said, losing herself in thought for a moment.

She snaps out of her dreaming, and turned the attention back to the Lord. "What about yourself Reeve? Anything you like to do besides noble responsibilities?"

"That's good noble responsibility, I really don't have nay of those, that's all for my big brothers. as for me, I like coming into the village, getting to know everyone, I try to help people out with their work whenever I can, or when they will let me. Otherwise you know, I just hang out with my friends laughing having a good time."

He looks around wondering where they even are, they are never this late

"Hey I just had a great idea, you should come hang out with us some time, it'll be a good time, I promise"

"Oh, what do you and your merry men get up to ? I'd like to, if you still roam after dark? I do have to work, renember?" Katelyn laughs, as she looks around noticing a few customers getting low on their beverages

"Oh you know, a little of this a little of that, for the most part we stay out of trouble. But every so often we get blamed for something. The don't really roam around too much after dark, they all work on the family farms so they have to go to bed early. But you're more than welcome to hang around with me if you'd like. I usually try to stay away from the keep til everyone goes off to bed avoiding all those "Noble responsibilities" you were talking about earlier"

He feels a little blushed, just realizing what he asked her, wondering what has gotten over him

"Ok, I'll meet you outside the tavern after closing. Now I do have to refill some mugs, with my tavern responsibilities!" She smiled at him, before returning to work.

He smiled at her as she got up, not helping to watch her walk away before realizing she had just agreed to hang out with him later on. He realized this wasn't gonna be any ordinary night so he hopped up to rush home and change and do a few things before hand. He rose from the bench, finishing his ale before signalling to her he would return and dashed home

After a long night of serving drinks and cleaning up, Katelyn waits outside the entrance to the tavern. She shivers a bit, even though she has wrapped a cloak around herself.

Reeve comes walking up, sees Katelyn waiting for him so he rushes over.

"Hi sorry took me a little longer that I thought it would. You look cold here wear this"

He takes his cloak and wraps it over her shoulders, trying to warm her up. The cloak is a bit long and so the fur along the bottom drags along the ground.

"would you care to go for a walk? It's nice and peaceful out and a clear night as well, I happen to know a perfect spot for looking up at the stars"

Reeve holds his hand out for her

His cloak was quite luxurious, not unexpected for a noble. Still warm from being worn, Katelyn holds it close to her as she takes his hand and they stroll out into the night. While it is quite cold, the sky is very clear, the dim light of the moon and stars guiding their way.

They head off, he is leading them to his favorite spot to look at the night sky, surprisingly a place he has never brought anyone, jis place to think.

"So your family has been here for a long time haven't they? I seem to remember that tavern just always being there. I mean I can remember as a child when my father used to come to the village all the time, talking with the people, getting to know them and their families, he used to know everyone's jobs. I guess thats where I get it from myself, but anyways, I used to remember we always went to that tavern for a meal, I may have even had my first ale their. Our fathers seemed to be friends, they spoke together more than he spoke with anyone else. Or maybe I remember i wrong. Anyways the spot I wanted to show is right up here"

He led her out onto the hilltop, clear of any trees or brush and you could se the night shy and the stars as far as the eye could see. Then he reached behind him pulling out a blanket, the reason he ran home, and laid it out on the grass motioning for her to have a seat as he sat down on it.

Katelyn sits down on the blanket, while it dudnt make the ground any softer it did shield them from the wet ground. She looks up ad smiles at the glittering night sky, seemingly endless.

"I'm not too sure, we get so many people through the tavern that are important, or seem to be as such. I only know that my father says good things about the Duke. About everyone in your family too, so they may be friends." Katelyn quiets herself, not wanting to give the impression that she is a mouthy woman. She pulls the cloak tighter around her as a gust blows past.

He feels the gust of wind and places his arm over her shoulder pulling her in close, not even realizing what he is doing.

"So this is an amazing view isn't it? Not too many people know about it honestly and it lets me get away from everything and everyone and just think about, well, things."

He takes his arm from her shoulder and lays back, looking up into the sky and listening to the sounds of nature in the nearby woods

Katelyn blushes lightly as the young Lord gently pulls her to his chest. 

"Yes it is quite lovely, I'm truly glad that you decided to share it with me." She says as she leans back and lies next to him in the quiet night.

"So tell me, what sort of dreams do you have? What do you see your life being, I mean it can't just be about working the tavern the rest of your life. Not that there is anything wrong with that of course. But I am just curious if you have any other dreams or aspirations in life"

He turns to lay on his side, propped up on his elbow looking at her.

Katelyn thinks for a while,she had never been asked what she wanted to do before. "Well, I love to garden, and Mrs Godfrey said she could use some herbs and flowers to make potions and tinctures. Maybe I could sell things from my garden to an apothecary?" She wonders aloud

      In 2015, 1 January, Los Angeles was turned into a war zone for two days as TV Head an a hand full of Villains assaulted and demolished the metropolis. On the first day the several dozen high ranked Villains, thugs and mercenaries, killed over one hundred thousands people, comprised of civilians, first responders and Heroes. TV Head hijacked major radio stations and local TV networks via radio manipulation and professed his ideology to the world. He said that the U.S. an its Heroes and Villains were nothing but a show now and swore to give the world the greatest show it had ever wanted, effectively declaring war on the U.S.. Between saving civilians, defending evacuation points and fighting the villains, the heroes that were there in the initial attack were kept on their back foot. It wasn't until the second day that Technomancer had organized with the U.S. military and the top twenty heroes for a counter attack. Fighting along the U.S. coast guard and navy, the top ten Heroes were able to push the Villains back out. By the end, over 150,000 thousand died an even more wounded while there was only a handful of Heroes and Villains left standing. The few villains that survived barely made it out with their lives. It was on that first day that Lillian's lover had been murdered at the hands of TV Head with little regard, like an after thought.

      Over the next month the U.S. was left in shock as politicians and Home Land Security scrambled to decide on how to handle what was considered the largest security break in U.S. history. Fearing a repeat of September 11th, the U.S. government opted to handle the issue with covertness, taking to using a scalpel instead of a hammer. The matter was to be handled with the upmost scrutiny and tactfulness. Not wanting to incite mass hysteria or unrest, the U.S. Government took to managing the issue behind the scenes while assuring the public that it was doing everything in its power to uncover the Villains and their plots. During that time the government platformed and put heroes on a pedestal, praising the heroes for their hard work. Like wise, the media began putting even more attention onto the Heroes of the U.S.. In no time the focus went from how the Government was going to handle the threat to how would the Heroes handle this threat. Some feared losing popularity while others saw it as the perfect chance to earn more of it, but both were put into spotlight. Even though some Heroes were public servants, their affiliation with the government was quickly lost from public sight as the subjects and interviews centered around what the Heroes themselves would do. Despite all the big talk that the government and Heroes were giving, no progress was being made. TV Head's trail was spotless.

      During that time, TV Head had cemented what would soon be known as the Villains Syndicate in a massive underground network of tunnels that spanned much of the U.S.. Their numbers were small but their resources an interest groups were growing every day. By the end of the month after the attack on L.A., TV Head had refitted and modified a part of the tunnels into what he had dubbed "The Proving Grounds". This place would be where he would nurture the next generation of Villains. He would use this place to teach them while giving refuge and sanctuary to Villains from all over. TV Head had made himself known to the world but he still needed to get the word out about the Villains Syndicate and he knew exactly how to do it. At first, TV Head hadn't noticed, but Lillian had dropped the smallest of onto his hoodie. It wasn't until the flower had started to grow that TV Head noticed an intrusion. The flower, of course, had its own magnetic field that, once grown, was easily detected by TV Head. His magnetic field was like another layer of skin whereas the flower was like noticing a pimple. TV Head recognized the flower and knew then that it was only a matter of time until one the top 10 heroes, Trip Star, was coming after him. He would set a trap and record the slaughter on video for the internet to see as an announcement of the Villains Syndicate's arrival.

      TV Head rounded up the villains an informed them that they could expect an attack from one of two directions in the tunnels from the Heroes and likely, the military. There was debates and yelling, as some Villains left while others decided to fight the heroes. After that, there was much deliberation on what to do, on whether or not take the fight to the heroes or wait for them to find the Proving Grounds. It was decided to wait to fight on the Proving Grounds on the single fact that the P.G. was the most known territory they had control of. They knew they were safe from sonar or radio signal's down there, so they could use that to their advantage to avoid detection from above ground. With that in mind, two lines were to be set up for either entrance of the P.G. while TV Head would use his radio waves as sonar for the underground tunnels. If the military was detected then they would simply blow up which ever side they were coming from, dropping rubble with not needing to fear being trapped. If it was just Heroes, then the villains could lay in wait to ambush them. The only hole in the plan was that it rested on the idea that the enemy would either detonated a charge or break down a door to get into the tunnels. That or bypass one of the security doors. Either choice would give plenty of notice to the villains to set up. But this plan assumed that Trip Star and whoever she may bring did not have an alternative route that TV Head could not have known about. TV Head could never be too sure, but he doubted those chances. All the Villains would have to do is wait for the signal.

      Mike Sheer got up for the first day of school with a smile on his face. The thirty three year old teacher had just moved to Glades, California and his beach house was all he could have ever asked for. There was a logical reason for being able to live there on a teacher's salary, divorce. Mike had been married to a famous actress without a pre-nuptial agreement and thus when she decided to end it he got half of her fortune, which was about three million dollars. Sure it was a lot, and many questioned why he would ever work again, but the fact was that Mike loved teaching. So he spent the majority on his beach house and saved the rest for property taxes down the line. 
      At five in the morning he went for a run along the beach and enjoyed the fresh sea air, it got his blood pumping well in the morning before he headed back inside his home to prepare for the day. A shower, breakfast that consisted of cooking himself a ham and cheese omelet with tomatoes in it, and then finally he was ready to go. Mike dressed in a tight black t-shirt with a brown sports jacket to go with his cargo style khaki pants and brown shoes.
      The first day of school was a typical first day filled with going over the rules, syllabus, and then being on of those dreaded English teachers who made students work on the first day. Finally his sixth period class rolled around. They had just finished an assembly, so cheerleaders were all decked out in their uniforms, two who were in his class. His last class of his first day at Glades High School and Mike had a senior class full of girls, women actually as he checked the roster and every one of them was already eighteen. 
      "Hi all, and welcome to the first day of Senior Writing." He started off while passing out papers after the last bell rang to start class. "My name is mister Sheer, and together we will embark on a magical adventure unlike any other. I do have a few rules, no food, no drink other than water, no gum, and no cell phones. Any questions before I tackle the rest of the syllabus?"
