  1. Lorelei had sat and thought, and thought and sat, until she felt Adele's presence moving and her gaze was already at the door before her grandmother stepped through it, offering a warm smile, if a perhaps troubled one. She glanced toward the door again, as the woman sat down, and then tipped her head toward it, curiosity in her expression. "Everything is well?" The girl asked gently, always wishing to know how her family were. The change in Caleb since those months ago was strong, and she was hoping that he had been adjusting well. If anything, it was clear that Caitlin - the estranged daughter of Bethianna, it seemed - had been privy to the knowledge indeed, that could seal up the wound that males appeared to be naturally born with. That was a major step forward in regard to their kind, as far as Lorelei was concerned, it meant there was possibility of a future where one may not have to be scared to much for males, or Acceptance in general, and she wondered what else Bethianna had learned that her daughter may know about. And then the question was asked, and Lorelei's features took on the gentle look of confusion, mixed with some agitation and uncertainty. She wasn't exactly quite sure how she should approach the topic with Adele, but since the woman had the most children of any other women Lorelei knew of, then it meant she had a great deal more experience with men, surely? And thus she was the best one to inquire about the male gender and all things involved with them. "I would like to know about dating and intimacy," The girl decided on blunt honesty as her gaze peered toward her grandmother, "I have met a boy. And... he makes me feel happy, and strange, and nervous, and giddy, and tingly in odd places. And I am unsure whether he feels the same way as well. But he does much flirting with girls, but says it is jokes, but it does make me feel unhappy to read. And I believe you are the best one to ask about why or how males are able to do that. Also, how I might be able to go about making sure he does feel the same for me and how I might claim him." She offers a small nod then, peering at Adele expectantly for answers to a great mystery of the world.
  2. Well aware that she didn't need to stay near the door, and the fact that her grandfather was just a little concerned, if not also relieved that the boy hadn't got stuck outside with the full moon, Lorelei was stubborn to a fault - which Stuart was willing to blame on her grandmother's side of the family, regardless of whether it was true or not. The teenager stayed at the base of the stairs, a vigilant watcher, listening as the young man struggled in his shift, paying attention to the change in his mental state and the beast that arose and took over once he was in the changed form. She paid attention to it's thought patterns, the instincts and aggression, and she also tried to tap into some form of understanding, for all creatures had some semblance of it, there was always some level of communication that could be ascertained, and she was always rather good with animals. With such an observation, the young woman attempted to reach out mentally toward the beast, and offer some kind of soothing. Whether it be by offering some kind of companionship, or comfort in allowing it to know that it wasn't the only powerful creature in the vicinity. She didn't like that he had to be trapped, but she was acutely aware of the danger (to others if not to her) that was present in his current state. At least it was a distraction from other things that had been said earlier, statements that had made her begin to ask questions within her mind. Those were something easily pushed aside in favour of simply trying to coax the werewolf mentally to take it easy. The sapping of his energy lowered his defenses a little at least. Making it a little easier for her. Once Lorelei fell asleep though, he would be left to his own devices within the confines of the barrier that she had set up, unable to pass though it, and at worst being forced to sleep if he tried to get past it. Once morning came around, the sound of the door upstairs, and the footsteps and voices that followed caused her to wake and she gazed up the stairs at the sound, before removing the barrier. She knew without having to go up there, that it was Travis' mother, and she straightened her nightshirt before ascending and peeking out toward the woman almost shyly. "He is down here," Lorelei indicated behind her, "I am sorry that he was not where he was supposed to be, it was my fault." After all, Travis had decided to stay out so that he could hunt her down because she'd been avoiding him. She offered an apologetic pout, but Stuart shook his head with a light snort and chuckle. "Teenagers, right?" The man said to the Ministry worker who was Travis' mother, "It was honestly no trouble though. I'm just glad that Lei was able to get him here so that he could be kept somewhere safe, for him and others."
  3. "Horny f-...?" Lorelei's voice choked off at the very blunt wording and her features lit up a bright pink flush. but she shook her head, concentrating on other things, like the fact that Travis needed a safe place, and on ways to maybe try and keep him from harming himself. She didn't care that he could heal up, it didn't mean that she was fine with the idea of him tearing himself up over frustration of being locked in somewhere. And so decided she would simply have to stay near. At least with the destination she had in mind there wouldn't be a problem with that. Marisol Franklin, she memorised the name. The fact that she worked at the Ministry was a blessing as well, since it meant that Lei's grandfather would be able to contact her rather easily. If the teleportation had taken any wind out of her, it didn't show. In fact, Lorelei was finding that the more often she used her abilities, very slightly she was regaining bits of extra power back gradually. She was unaware whether Lillian was aware of this, and so she tried to keep a lid on it as much as possible, but this was an emergency as far as she was concerned, and the things she was doing weren't things that required a whole lot. "You will not end up a rug," Lorelei retorted quietly with a small huff and pout aimed toward the boy. Her grandfather was trustworthy, and he had always been very proactive in trying to gain non-humans more rights and protection. She closed the door behind Travis, offering him a nod before she departed from his sight, and then set all the bolts, before then concentrating on placing a barrier around the room, something that would keep him in without a problem. She didn't place any spell to shock him, but one that would sap some of his energy whenever he touched it, so that the worst that would happen is that he might fall asleep if he touched it for long enough or tried to get out too many times. After that, she cast her wide-eyed gaze up at Stuart. Now, Lei would have to explain the story. And she did once she ushered her grandfather back up the stairs. The man made the call to the boy's mother, so that she knew what was going on, and gave her their address so that she might be able to pick him up in the morning and bring a change of clothing. Once all was done, Lorelei made sure her own parents knew she was staying with Stuart, and they had dinner, before she set up a bed at the base of the stairs by the cellar door for herself. She shook her head against her grandfather's protests, and late into the night she sang softly while reaching out to try and let Travis know she was there. At some point the girl fell asleep, a gentle guardian at the cellar door.
  4. The acknowledgement that he was well aware of the effect he had on her, coupled with the scenting as his face pressed to the side of her neck one again, caused Lorelei's cheeks to burn a deep red hue again, and she simply offered a few short nods, the best she could do at the moment without potentially squeaking out some feeble attempt to recover some kind of dignity. Not that she'd really lost any, just that the blunt way he spoke about it, was aware of it, was playing havoc on her mind, bringing up questions that now was definitely not the right time to discuss. She couldn't tell whether he thought it was a good thing or a bad thing, whether he had any similar kinds of responses to her or not. She was too addled to effectively read his mind, and his mind was partially consumed by predator's needs to be able to gain a true reading anyway. "I'm not afraid of you, why would my body react in fear?" The teenager asked softly, despite her confusion she was still able to give off the calming aura that could help him maintain his control for the time being. She nodded in agreement though, that there was a much better time and place to discuss her attraction toward him and whatever it might mean. There were much more important things to worry about right now, and she watched as he seemed to warn her away from remaining near where he would be, "I can offer some calm to you in your changed form... perhaps you will be less likely to harm yourself then." She said softly, she knew that she wouldn't be able to get through to the human side of him, but she was adept at calming animals as well and there was always the possibility that she would be able to lessen the stress that would be upon the werewolf while locked up. It was worth a try if nothing else. "Yes, we can concern ourselves with other matters later. You must be somewhere safe," Lei repeated softly as she began to push herself up from where they'd tumbled, brushing off her dress with her hands for a brief moment, before then glancing at him, "What is your mother's name, so that I might contact her to let her know what is going on?" She asked. Someone would have to be informed so that no one jumped to conclusions that he had fled or was running wild tonight, and he had said that his mother was in the Ministry. It seemed like the best option. She then stepped over to him and clasped one of his hands gently with a soft smile, and in the blink of an eye, they were stood before a heavy door under ground. The girl didn't even need to flick a finger before the bolts on the door unlocked to open up to a cellar. On one side was wine and other alcohol stored away, and the other side held gym equipment. Within another moment it all vanished and there was a bed and a pitcher of water and books set on a table appeared. "What in the blazes?!" Came an explanation, muffled due to the owner of the male voice being a floor above them, but Lorelei waved it off for the moment and nudged Travis inside. "Get comfortable, I will not go far at all from here," Only moments after her explanation, did the door at the top of the stairs open and was the light turned on, the Minster of Magic stood there with a baffled expression, "I will explain shortly, Grandpa. But Travis needs to be somewhere secure right now, before he shifts."
  5. There was no flinch at the sharp reaction from him. Lorelei was aware enough of his nature, the time of the month, the very day itself, to know that Travis would be on edge and a potential danger to others. At least, others who weren't her. With him still out and about right now, perhaps it was for the best that she was a distraction from everything else, something that seemed to have been on his mind enough that he would risk such a dangerous situation when he couldn't be certain he would make it to where he needed to be in time or not. She couldn't figure why, he could have simply left her a note or something if he was bothered, and then she would have had to have responded or spoken to him. Why wait and then hunt her down? A question she knew she couldn't really ask right now. "You did nothing wrong or to upset me. The problem is my own," Lorelei said quietly, a calming manner and aura being offered to sooth the agitation of the beast. Though his response to what she had assumed caught her a little by surprise and caused her to bite her lip as she glanced away again. So she had assumed wrong and he had been joking about having girlfriends, but all their play confused her. Perhaps it was because she didn't see the joke in such things. Maybe she was simply still weird, regardless of her age now, and wouldn't fit in no matter how she tried, "I'm sorry for making the assumption." She said softly with a gentle nod in acknowledgement of her error, though tried to ignore the comment about her jealousy, "It is not... just that anyway. I have simply noticed lately that I feel strange when you are around, and have been trying to work out what is wrong with me, you have nothing to apologise for. And I shall try to refrain from feelings of jealousy." She offered with another gentle nod. Travis did have a point about the Wolfsbane though, and she pursed her lips in thought, before her gaze shifted upward from her position on her back, to peer past him and toward the sky. It was still afternoon, but she didn't know how far he would have to travel, or exactly where. If he was questioning whether he would even make it, that wasn't a good sign. "I could get you to a secure basement room, yes," Offering a gentle nod, Lei returned her gaze to Travis, "I can stay by the door as well. So that you are not entirely alone." She wanted to offer to keep him company inside what would be his cell, but knew that he would ultimately turn it down for the fear of harming her. She wasn't exactly certain whether he was fully aware yet of just how durable she was. A small huff was offered at his warning though, her cheeks puffing out slightly with a hint of indignity, "Your clothed state is hardly my primary concern. You have taken a very big risk and I don't even really understand why. We must make sure that you are safe and secure."
  6. If she's not been trying to distract herself already, Lorelei might have been aware that something was coming, or at the least that there was a shift in the air to herald an approach. She had been actively trying to keep her mind occupied though, and so it was only mere moments before contact that the teenager suddenly realised what was about to occur, her head turning sharply to capture a glimpse of her assailant before she was suddenly toppled from where she sat. The world turned and tumbled around her for a few moments, before she came to a stop, pinned to the ground while the young man loomed over her, that near feral look in his eyes which gave away how close it was to the time where he would lose control of himself. At first, she had to get her bearings a little, the tumble having confused her balance, but then she felt his nose and lips at the side of her neck and froze as he took a breath, her heart suddenly racing, but definitely not from fear. Lorelei may have been surprised, quite a great deal, but she wasn't afraid of Travis, even in the state he was currently in. She certainly was concerned about the fact that he wasn't where he probably should have been right now, and the fact that he appeared to have basically hunted her down. Though her mind went temporarily blank at the sensation of his tongue swiping at her lips and she simply lay there staring at him a moment with her lips parted while he spoke. It took a couple of tries before she was able to speak. He'd purposely waited until such a crucial time just to catch her unaware? What was he thinking? "Travis... you should be making sure that you are secure for tonight," The teenager breathed out as she attempted to move her arms, testing the hold he had on them for a moment, before biting her lip as she watched him with concern, despite the flood of strange feelings going through her right now. The knot in the stomach, the strange heat that she seemed to feel from his actions and current predatory nature. It excited her, and she couldn't wrap her head right around exactly how. Even worse was that she knew that in this state he would know that, which caused a soft blush to form on her cheeks while she tried to think of how she could even respond to the accusation that she'd been avoiding him. It was true, after all. "I have been at the school still, where I am supposed to be," Lorelei answered softly, though she knew that answer wouldn't be good enough. It wasn't exactly what he meant, and she was aware of that, as well as the fact that his patience was more than likely non-existent at the moment, and so she inhaled deeply and breathed out a slightly huffed sigh as her gaze slid to her left. "I did not wish to cause burden or bother..." She said, a half truth at best, since he had never shown any sign of her being either of those. "And... I am trying to... trying to..." She paused and her brow furrowed as she seemed to study the nearby pond with great interest, "I need to try to work out and gain control of something that's been happening to me... when I'm around you, it doesn't feel appropriate considering you have a girlfriend... or girlfriends. I am unsure on that front," The last came out as a quiet mumble, but her gaze remained diverted as her heart thumped, before she cleared her throat. "But that is unimportant, we must get you either to a safe house, or I have to get the Wolfsbane I procured for you," Lei stated with a firm nod. Something important to take care of, perhaps distract her from everything else.
  7. Though she had tried to ignore the strange feeling which she didn't like, it was difficult for Lorelei when she had to attend the same classes, and sense where a person was that she was trying to avoid. The only way so far that she was able to relax and collect her thoughts these days was when she could wander off to her hiding spot in the bush. A little grove that was near impossible to get through due to overgrowth around it, but easy for her because she could simply teleport there at will. With a small pond that was joined to the Korrowi Creek, and a comfortable grassy patch and good shade, she was able to find some peace on her own without her body and emotions being affected by whatever strangeness was going on. She just needed time. That was all. Lorelei was certain that if she just had some time to think over the possibilities of what troubled her, and how she could prevent them, or even be rid of the feelings that she didn't like, then she would be able to return to normal soon and not feel like she had to avoid someone everywhere that she went in the school. Of course, she had an inkling that it might be noticed. Where she had used to bump into him around the school just to say hi, she had been instead sensing where he was and making sure she wasn't there at the same time. She didn't sit next to him in class. She hid away during lunch... like right now. It seemed like a good plan to her. At least until she could sort herself and not be overcome by what she assumed were silly teenage feelings or hormones or whatever it was that flustered her when she remembered Australia Day, or made her feel a lump in her throat at reading some of the QuillBook messages that she'd seen recently. And so, the teenager sat near the pond, on a small grassy knoll, with a book in hand and singing softly in a language that few people in the world even knew existed outside of the small hidden island she'd been born on. Like her mother, she was gifted in vocal talent. She was gifted in a number of talents, but was still struggling to work out what was hers. And that was made only more difficult by the distraction that had been created by a boy. Still... she sighed softly in between verses. She did miss spending time with him and she couldn't help but wander what he was doing with his time. Likely getting himself checked in for tonight. The thought caused a small frown. She's acquired Wolfsbane, but hadn't been able to tell him yet because of the silly way she was feeling. Maybe next month.
  8. "I do like cats," Lorelei smiled warmly, "We have some at home." The teen offered a light nod, but then considered his words on being at home, lips pursed, "That is fair. I could see if grandfather would be alright with you staying on his property. There is a small cabin across one of the rear paddocks," She tilted her head as she continued to think about it. Seemed like a fairly decent idea, and she could explain to Stuart that she had a friend who was using Wolfsbane for the first time and just needed somewhere to feel safe for the full moon. After all, where could be safer than on the Minister of Magic's property? "There is bushland off the rear of the property, right near the cabin, so you would be able to go there as well," She offered a brilliant smile toward Travis and nodded. The talk of her growth and how she was treated by others caused a mixture of reactions, but ultimately she had to laugh softly at the idea of her rebellious stage, "I am afraid I may have been born with that." She admitted quietly to him, and it was something of a family trait, so no one was really surprised there. "Ah... yes, alright," The young woman nodded gently at the reminder that by saying some things she was probably still saying a little too much. Not that she seemed to mind too much now that she had told him about her situation already and he was accepting of it. She felt like he could be trusted with knowledge of herself and her family to a degree after that, but also knew that she shouldn't simply go telling people, regardless of whether she felt like she could trust them. She offered a small abashed smile and then shrugged gently, "I am comfortable around you. Especially knowing that you do not think of me differently, even with the knowledge of my... well, growth." She said quietly, before she made her attempt at a sneak move to dunk him... only to find herself being thrown into the water as well, and coming back up feeling as though there was a greater breeze than before. "No, it was not part of the plan! I was to dunk you!" Lorelei exclaimed, splashing him again before realising that she felt a lot more sensitive when brushing against his chest. She glanced down around the same time as he did, though she didn't notice whatever it was that Travis was looking for. Rather, she realised that she'd lost her own article and her hands and arms moved to cover her chest as her cheeks and ears burned bright red suddenly, the girl looking around the water before she spotted the bikini top floating nearby and grabbed for it, only to see that it hadn't untied, but had snapped. She shook her head at his words, "Not freaking out... I, this was just an accident. And it's not like you haven't said before you have some idea how they are..." She babbled quickly, thinking that Travis was talking about her exposure. It was only after she looked over at him and noticed he was looking for something else that she followed his gaze into the water and then jumped back a little. "O-oh! That... uh, I guess we forgot some things aren't made for supernatural speed or strength," The girl said, having lowered into the water so that it was neck high, it made covering herself at least a little easier. "Um..." She bit her lip, but despite the embarrassment, there was some hilarity in the situation as well and she couldn't help it as she began giggling softly, before it turned into a full laugh, lasting a short time before she shook her head lightly, "Maybe... we should get dressed. We can do something a bit less destructive for our clothing."
  9. "Why would I not want you close?" Lorelei asked, though there was a small smile on her lips as she watched Travis from the corner of her eye, some amusement in their word play, before she then chuckled at his mentioning of how he was with food. "I will have to remember to carry some steak or something around with me," She teased, however she gave a few light nods as he confirmed their plans for the bush wandering later on. She felt happy and satisfied that already she'd made a close connection who wasn't already family or a friend from when she was little. Of course, she wasn't even sure why he still gave her a funny feeling in her stomach when he smiled or winked at her, and she definitely was curious of whether it was some special friend thing, or that maybe she needed to talk to Adele to see if they were possibly allergic to werewolves. Though, if that were the case then she'd feel unwell around him all the time. Well, she did feel a bit weird around him. The girl broke from her thoughts at the quiet response from the girl on the other side of Travis. She was like a mouse in the way she acted, which Lorelei found curious, but she decided not to pry. She knew that it was rude, and also that timid people and creatures were only frightened more by a head on approach. She would perhaps just have to take her time if she wanted to learn more about Danielle. And then the teacher decided to use another spell on the boxes once people had unlocked them, and Lorelei tried not to appear too bored when her own moved swiftly straight back to her table without her having even searched for it. She knew that this would probably be a class that she would excel in, but she hadn't been certain to what extent. Still, she didn't mind as she glanced around a little, watching everyone else with their own, though her attention quickly shifted to Alex and the girl focused on him as she attempted to direct some of her own energy across to him, hoping that their shared blood would still allow for it, even with his relation to the Violet now.
  10. "I am told that I can be quite stubborn," Lorelei smiled lightly with a small cheeky glint in her eye, though her expression sobered as he reminded her of the cells and thought for a moment, "You would have to ensure them ahead of time that you have Wolfsbane, so that they will allow you to remain home. Though they will likely post someone to watch over you and make sure you do take it at the right time, if you have not used it before." The girl nodded, and it appeared she had perhaps at least done a little research of her own. She knew for a fact that even she would not want to be reminded of such a place to be held, where there were many others going through the change as well, all of them wild and caged. It did not feel right, but Lei also knew that she couldn't help all of them. At least not yet. The relief of his acceptance of her story was something that took a great weight off the teen's shoulders, though. The worry that he would see her differently, treat her like a child, or worse... decide he didn't want anything to do with her because she was just too strange. He seemed to have taken it all in stride. "Well, yes... it really had just been a push in my growth. But I shall not be... de-aging, or anything. This is how I am now, and I shall continue to mature and grow from here on, which is why it becomes a little frustrating that my family are still trying to... shelter me, I suppose. As though I am still a child," The teenager sighed softly. She knew they meant well, that they all still saw the girl that she had been, but how was she to progress and fit in if they tried to hold her back? The whole point of her even going to school, where she felt there was little for her to learn about herself, was to be around others, be a part of the world around her and not above it or separate from it. "We are... something," She murmured, "There may be Fae roots, though." She hadn't really considered it, but it actually seemed somewhat viable the more she did think about it. Though with them being at the water now, and noticing not only that seeing him almost naked gave her strange feelings, but that he was actually enjoying himself and seemed to be able to relax with her out here, she couldn't help but feel a little happy that he had agreed to come swimming. Even if she had said that they didn't have to, he had still wanted to because he knew that she had wanted to and that struck her as a rather thoughtful act, given his uncertainty about having his scars showing so much. "Why would you sit under a hose?" The girl blinked at him, but she didn't wait for an answer before she had moved underwater in her attempt to strike. She'd known there was a high chance that he'd be able to follow her movements at least for the most part, but she felt a little triumphant that she had surprised him by the fast 'attack' from her. She'd moved fast enough that she had hoped she could topple a werewolf, though his instinct had kicked in and been her downfall as she was grabbed as well and found herself plunged underwater with him with quite some force. She didn't even notice the strap on her top snap loose, and knew she couldn't fight free if he held her securely, and so she waited until he brought them both up, before she wiped her face with one hand, the other still wrapped over his shoulders, followed by using her free hand to splash at his face, "That was not how it was supposed to go." She exclaimed lightly, before then laughing softly as she wiped her eyes again.
  11. It was something that had begun as barely anything. The girl hadn't considered it even just a couple of months ago. She'd began school like everyone else, but there were so many things that teenagers understood so much better than her, even though there were so many other things that she understood so much better than... well, most of the school. But there were things that were happening to her, with or without her intent or desire. She was aware enough to know that it had to be something to do with her growth spurt, that the hormonal changes which came with being a teenager would affect other parts of her, other than just physically. Mentally, emotionally, she was aware that there were sudden strange feelings, but she couldn't describe them or put them into some kind of understandable label. This was Travis' fault, surely. Well, no, she would liked to have blamed him, but he couldn't control what happened with her. That was just silly. What had caused this latest trip to the library to seek the knowledge of her grandmother though was the latest things she'd read in the Quillbook, which she had tossed into a drawer once she had written in it. She felt... hurt? Confused? Jealous, possibly? Mostly, she felt like she was lacking important knowledge that would allow her to understand better the things teenagers talked about. Dating, kissing, whatever else it was they did as boyfriends and girlfriends. Lei didn't even ring the bell at the librarian's desk, simply walking around it to the door which led to Adele's office and the living space attached to it. She did knock gently on the door before opening it and looking around with a small pout on her lips. Seeing no one, but knowing that her grandmother was just in the other room with Caleb for a moment, she moved to a chair and sat down, her expression contemplative as she waited for Adele to decide to see what she wanted.
  12. "I am going to get some Wolfsbane, and you will be able to try it out. Imagine how much sharper your senses would be in your changed form. You appear to have a wonderful photographic memory, so could you imagine the pictures you could create from what you capture with your senses then?" There was almost a somewhat peaceful note to her voice, the girl no doubt an appreciator of the arts, even if she 'claimed' that she wasn't so skilled. She knew she could do a lot of things, but those things didn't feel like her thing, which she couldn't really explain well. Still, she could only imagine the kind of beauty that someone with the enhanced senses in their shifted form could create. Perhaps it was a little idyllic, but she did believe there could be something that came from his curse which could show that he didn't have to only live with the suffering it caused. At least the young man seemed to understand what she had meant when Lorelei explained her own predicament, and she fidgeted with her hands in front of her as they began to walk, while he worked it out in his head whilst also vocalising what she'd already told him. She tilted her head as she watched him almost cautiously, unsure of his entire reaction, until he seemed to confirm that he couldn't treat her any differently than a teenager, since that was how he had met her. A small breath was released and she offered a gentle shy smile to him of appreciation. "Thank you. It was... something that I did not wish to keep secret for too long. Eventually, the truth would be known, and... well, it simply feels better for me now, that you know... and that you will not treat me any differently. My family, and those who knew me before... they wish that I am still a child, but I have not been a child for a very long time, before my age was accelerated even," Lorelei explained quietly, with a gentle shrug, "It is...a family trait of a sort. Our consciousness is active before we are even born, we experience and remember that which our mothers do, and while some have their memories erased or reset when born, I was one who did not. One who my great Grandmiere and my aunt sought to train somewhat." She explained, though blinked a little and bit her lip before simply nodding. She hadn't mentioned what they were, and he already knew she was definitely not human. To explain how she was... what she was, or how she thought the way she did, was not so bad, was it? At the water though, the teenager had relaxed, her fingers brushing the surface of the water while she waded in, before she dove, coming back up after a few moments to look back at Travis. With his attention on undressing, she was able to study him, his physique and the scars, though as she did she felt a strange lump form in her stomach and turned her gaze away, diving beneath the water again as she realised that her cheeks her burning slightly. Why would she be blushing? She wasn't unaccustomed to seeing males in their swimming trunks, she had a brother, father, uncles. How was this any different? Still, as she rose back up, she watched him enter the water, and offered a small shy smile. "It's good yes?" Lorelei asked, before then disappearing under the surface again. She swam quickly along the bottom, toward him, and as she neared the girl pounced from the water in order to attempt to tackle him and dunk the boy beneath the surface. Perhaps if she used her usual antics then she would feel less strange.
  13. Lorelei smiled as she listened to Adele, watching people gain points for each of their Houses, though a small frown tugged at her own lips when Lauren had seemed to follow on from her own answer, and then didn't receive points. And yet, it seemed Lorelei hadn't been addressed at all because of the interjection. The frown turned into a pout as she looked to her grandmother as she raised her hand so that she could be recognised. "Do I not get points for my answer, Grandmiere?" Lorelei asked quietly once she'd been addressed, before then following on with her own answer to the next question. "Mary Burdett - later Blair - was a student here, who was an advocate for the rights of magical and native wildlife as well as other non-humans. She began a movement in her University years, to push the Ministry to bring down harsher laws on those who would hunt or endanger both beasts as well as non or half-humans, and worked as a beast rescuer for most of her life. She did this for many years long after she was married and had a child, as well as set up a sanctuary and hospital for endangered magical species and non-humans. Eventually, the hospital part was moved into town, as a part of the hidden section of Narragyambie General. The Wildlife park is the largest in the country and has the most varied species of creatures in the Southern Hemisphere." She didn't care if she was talking about her own great grandmother, Mary was a legend in her eyes. "She also does bake the best sweets in the world too," Lorelei decided to add. It was true.
  14. A small cheeky smile graced Lorelei's lips at Travis' response to her explanation of the situation, and she chuckled softly as she glanced off to the side a little. She noticed some of the other students didn't seem to get along so well, or were simply just rude or mean to one another, but she couldn't understand why. Watching the bag that was sent flying at a girl, her features pulled into a small frown and within moments the books and papers of the culprit were sent across the floor, without even any signal or movement from Lei herself. "I suppose you must become more familiar with my presence so that you do not miss it next time," The girl offered another cheeky grin, before then laughing quietly, "Thinking of food already? Well, lunch will be not too long after this lesson, I was thinking of having a big burger with the lot today," She mused, and then nodded in agreement, "Then it is set, I shall steal you away for bush exploring later on." She smiled, glancing around a little again while things were going on. Her box continued to lock and unlock, open and close while she was talking, the whole task itself barely worth much thought from her, and she leaned over to peek past Travis as he then introduced her to another student, offering a polite smile and small wave, "Hello. It is nice to meet you." A dhampir, she thought to herself, recognising the signs immediately due to having family who were such. This discovery brought an even warmer smile to her lips.
  15. "This I do understand," Lorelei nodded gently before biting her lip a little. She had a funny feeling that Travis would probably be much the same if she wanted to assist him, but she hoped that he would allow her to be of some help to him some time. She was aware there was something that seemed to cling to him - aside from the more obvious curse - but she wasn't willing to invade his thoughts to learn more. She did listen though as the boy explained how it was that he'd come to find art and sketching for himself. Her lips tugged into a small warm smile and she nodded a little, "That is a very intelligent use of your extra senses, using those things that you notice more as inspiration to draw or create." She nodded again, though her mind was still having trouble trying of think of something that had really felt like her kind of niche. She shook her head vehemently at the suggestion of being any kind of werewolf hunter at all, but then bit her lip as she seemed to debate. "What about... what would be your thought on someone who had aged years within months?" The teen asked quietly, frowning as she looked at her lap. It wasn't as though it was a huge secret after all. Those who knew her family well, and the Burdetts were well aware of the strange growth spurts that both she and Lauren had undergone. "As in, they had always had a more mature mindset and intelligence, but were a child a year ago, and had grown into a teen within that time span... as though they had been placed in fast forward for a number of months, and now seemed to fit their mental outlook a lot better than they used to," Lorelei pursed her lips a little as she focused on a single spot on the rock, unsure of Travis' response. Perhaps she could have kept it to herself, but he would have eventually learned. The girl nodded at the mention of saving the food for the walk home though, and simply stood up and began to lead onward while she mulled over the teasing - she was certain it was teasing - from the young man. She was aware there were some areas of life she was inexperienced in, but she did really see her life as having simply been sped forward, and not like a child in a teen's body, and something told her it was one of those jokes between boys and girls who flirted. How did someone even know how to flirt? Was it something she could learn quickly, the teen wondered. "Perhaps I should mind. After all, I should learn about what would make me smile, yes?" Did that sound strange? Lei wrinkled her nose as she thought, but then shook her head a little as she pushed through a few bushes and found them the quiet sandbar where there was no one else at the moment. In the distance, she could still hear others off around the lake's bend, playing around, music carried on the air, but for the most part there wasn't anyone else. Giving a small smile and nod at having found a good spot, the young woman then stripped off easily, tugging her shirt up over her head and kicking off her runners and shorts until she was in just a light blue bikini. Turning her head to offer a light smile to Travis, she then stepped out into the water slowly, shifting her gaze to the water itself as she waded up to her midsection before then diving under.

Friends

  • Shows an uncanny intelligence, not only for a teen but for a person in general
  • An innately strong magical ability
  • Appears drawn toward non-humans and magical creatures, and enjoys learning more about them
Personality

To say Lorelei's personality is complex would be an understatement. She holds a deep intelligence that is clearly abnormal for someone of her age, appears to be able to see things that others cannot, and knows things that she probably shouldn't. It is this alone that makes her occasionally quite stoic and serious. But more than that, she appears to constantly be seeking more knowledge, and to learn more about the world around her as well as the world beyond school and home and the land that she resides in currently. Whether it is books that she learns things from, or somewhere else, one cannot be sure, but they can be certain that if there is something she hears about but doesn't know, she will find a way to gain information about it.

And yet, there is also a happy innocence to the child on occasion, when she is able to appear like any other when playing with her siblings or with other children that she knows well. Making new friends is somewhat trying for her, unless they are older, since they appear to be able to hold discussions that hold her interest a lot more than her fellow peers of her own age group. However, those she has known for years, she guards fiercely and with utmost loyalty.

There is also a prankster within the girl, one that shows carefully thought out intelligence and wit, something that would almost make her a potential evil overlord in the making, if not for the fact that she does not like to actually harm anyone - not unless they deserve it in her eyes. And in that manner, bullies and mean people should be wary of the girl, for she does not forgive easily or let anyone off the hook without comeuppance.

Appearance

Though she appears to have delicate features and wide innocent eyes, the adorable facade of this young woman can be broken on occasion with something as simple as a change in her expression or glint in her gaze. Her hair is jet black and glossy, exactly like her mother's, and she has soft features that seem gorgeous, rather than simply cute, and make her actually look a bit older than claims. She wields a charming smile, and a ferocious glare, and can somehow be disarming and yet somewhat scary at the same time with the innocence that she displays, combined with the deeper intelligence that can be spotted if one peers deep enough into those strange eyes, one blue the other brown.

Not one to be hung up on appearance, however, she wears what she is supposed to at various times. For school, she wears her uniform, when visiting L'Arine, she dresses accordingly so, and at home she will wear whatever clothing seems best for the day or occasion, if there is one. She prefers dresses and skirts to pants, however, even when playing on her grandfather's property. She carries herself with confident dignity, straight shoulders, chin up, and always looks in someone's eyes when she is speaking directly to them.

History

Lorelei was conceived during her mother's final year of school, while her parents were still in London for a month or so after her father's heart surgery. She became aware fairly early on, and when she realised that her mother was in danger from a stalker that had kidnapped Jezebel, she called out for whoever might be listening, which happened to be her great grandmother Lillian. While the Sorceress was able to make sure that Jez didn't die in the house that had burned and fallen around her, Jez wouldn't have the energy to both heal and continue carrying her child, and so Lorelei was transferred to the womb of a woman who lived on Isle du L'Arine.

There, she was born, and though loved by her 'parents', she felt no connection to them and had no desire to remain, despite the visits and lessons from Lillian. The people who believed they were her parents were not of her blood, and Lorelei had already chosen her path, and thus she ended up eventually leaving them with the assistance of Flora, who brought Lorelei to Tallygarunga one day, when the great pygmy puff prank was occurring. Lei found her way to her grandmother and, via Adele (once she was told of their relation), to her mother and father. Reunited once again, she felt content once more.

From there, the girl lived a relatively normal live for one such as she, who had a famous mother and an intelligent father. She was thrilled when she received siblings, and was continued to be visited by Flora - who she considered to be her best friend - as well as Lillian, who continued to impart knowledge and lessons upon the young girl. She became interested in non-humans and magical beasts from a very young age, and has spent a great deal of time learning more about them, while also keeping a cautious eye out for anything that she believed may be a threat to her family.

This led to her near sacrificing herself for her family in early 2018, when she consumed the entirety of a sleeping curse that had been meant for all the attendees at her parents Unwedding party event. Luckily, due to her heritage she was not killed but instead placed into a death-like slumber, her spirit separated from body. During this time she learned things, was able to help a couple of people, but when her family's enemy struck once again, she insisted on being brought back to her body. The process involved requiring the power of one of the first Six in order to fuse her soul back to her form, and the result was the fusing of the soul of the Brown to herself as well. This gave her the brown eye on her left side, and has given her a much deeper connection to Lauren, the girls basically soul-twins now.
