124 year old Halfbreed Human ☆ She/Her

In all honesty, Rosa was actually very glad that she and her sister had been able to get work at the school. Sure, she wasn't here nearly as much as Keira, spending a lot of time bartending and waitressing, but at the school they were close to the small farm where they were all living, and vastly out of the eye of the public and all the questions that they might get if they were known to be working in the city or anywhere else that was easily accessible by reporters. The school offered them just a bit of a buffer in that regard, and she didn't mind young people, even the ones who pulled tricks or mischievous pranks. She'd grown up with a trickster sister after all.

Right now though, felt utterly quiet and peaceful as she sat atop the roof of the Astronomy tower. She'd been cleaning out  dust, dirt and leaves, and other gunk that had built up in the gutters over a number of years. It hadn't been requested, but she was glad she had done it. There were a few spots that looked like they would need repairing in the near future. And besides, it offered the best view of the surrounding area. She cast her gaze around, though once it reached the direction of Reedy Lake, she shuddered as a chill ran down her spine, and decided it was time to hop down.

Easier done than she'd thought as well, it seemed. As soon as Rosa neared the edge, a loose tile slipped from beneath her foot and her eyes widened as she fell with a surprised shriek, hitting her back on the lip of the roof, her cardigan catching on it and resulting in the garment being pulled up and over her head as she dropped down onto the balcony that circled the Astronomy classroom, landing on her rear with a thud that reverberated along her spine and she dropped onto her back to close her eyes a moment, heart thundering in her chest.

That was close, the woman lucky that there was only a small drop to the balcony rather than the entire fall to the ground. It also meant she would need to get up there and check out the rest of the roof, since she was rather certain that there were students who climbed up there - whether they were allowed or not. She didn't have to look to know her cardi was latched onto a sharp edge above her, though her torso was too numb to notice that her shirt was almost pulled up to her armpits as well as she lay there a few more moments. It's not like there was a class on right now, she just had to take a minute or two to recover before getting to her feet.
