Unfamiliar Territory
« on: October 16, 2015, 01:50:33 am »
Afternoon already? Agilene stared out the window, her head pressed against its cold, scratched up glass. The sun beamed near the edge of the horizon, accompanied by a sky mixed with orange, sky blue, and pink. This was sign of a long, dreadful day finishing soon. If the bus wasn't so shaky, she would have dosed off the minute she boarded it from CHS.

Looking down from the sky, and on to the scenery passing by, she noticed an always familiar school approaching. One that shined bright like a diamond, and had two elegant spires standing beside the main doors. This school was none other than Crystal Prep Academy. Every day on her way home, Agilene passed by it. And every day, her bus makes a stop to collect a long line of waiting students itching to go home.

This time was different, unfortunately for every passenger. As per usual, every empty seat was filled in seconds the moment the doors open. But things took a turn for the worse when a boom at the back of the bus made Agilene's stomach drop, and heart race. Following the noise, smoke rose from where it had gone off. Behind all the chitter chatter of worried students, Agilene overhears the driver instructing everyone to leave the bus, and wait for another. Groaning at this news, Agilene gets up from her seat, and makes her way out the bus.

Ebony looks up at the sky as he walks away from another day of school at Crystal Prep. Now more familiar with the layout of the place he focuses more on the social aspects of it. A tricky game of appearances and secrets, Ebony decides to simply watch and observe from afar for now until he figures out how to approach certain groups. A loud bang catches his attention, directing him to the school bus not too far away; the smoke and exiting students are a familiar sight, it happened to him once a month back in Detrot. Approaching one of the students, he looks over to the bus and shakes his head, "Busted bus? That sucks, I'm guessing you guys have to wait for another one?"

Finishing what he needed to do at the library. Broadshield got out of the school, the sun shining. A loud bang suddenly got his attention as he turned to a bus. Walking over to the group if students exiting the bus he says "Damn, what happened here?"

On a bench not too far, Morgan sits typing rapidly on a computer. The bang caused her too look up but immediately return to typing on her laptop. She knew how to fix most vehicles but when the teen is in her zone with programming, she rather finish it first.

"Yes!" She cheered as she pressed the enter key. Suddenly, all of the doors in Crystal Prep unlocked. Slapping her laptop down she threw it in her backpack and approached the bus. "Hey mister do you need any help fixing that? I guarantee I could at least do something to help with it.

Upon exiting the bus, Agilene's curiosity makes her turn to where the boom had taken place. Smoke rose from an intense dent above the back wheel, as if something struck it with the force of lightning. On top of that, she noticed sparks flying out of the damage, which added to her suspicion. Whatever hit the bus seemed to be quite serious. There was no way it could have been another car, she imagine. Agilene's best bet was the work of a couple troublemaking students pulling pranks.

Having enough of pondering the situation, she walked through the crowd of waiting aggravated students itching for the next bus. She didn't know what felt worse: trudging through a large crowd of annoyed passengers waiting, or being the only girl with a completely different attire than everyone else. Making her way to the other side as best as she could, she apologized left and right to kids whom she accidentally bumped into, stepped on their shoes, and the like. Though the trek only took half a minute, it felt like much more, but Agilene finally made her way out of the crowd.

She stopped walking, and looked left and right for a place to sit. So far, the only tolerable waiting spot was a bench a few feet away with a girl typing on her laptop. She shrugged, and walked over to the bench.

Getting a closer look at the damage, something didn't feel right to him. A massive dent at the rear of the bus with smoke and sparks emerging from the dent. "No car could have done this. Maybe something heavier like a truck, maybe even some kind of explosive. No, if it was an explosive this bus would be a pile a burning wreckage." Pulling out his phone he takes a few pictures of the large dent before waking off. Looking around for somewhere to sit down he saw Agilene waking off somewhere. Seeing as how he knew her e decided to try to catch up to her ad see what's going on.

Ebony inspects the bus before taking a mental snapshot of what happened. Looking around there's nothing that could've caused it; lady luck simply wasn't in the mood today. He sees the group of students amassing at a table, shrugging, he heads over to them, perhaps they may know something he doesn't.

Shrugging at the damage of the bus, she went back to her bench noticing another student there. Morgan stared fro a moment before pushing up her hipster glasses and just sitting down in her old spot whipping the laptop back out. She rapidly continued to type, occasionally blowing bubbles with he pink gum in her mouth.

Taking a seat on the bench, next to the girl typing on her laptop, Agilene leans her head back, staring up at the sky. She couldn't help but move her eyes onto the laptop's screen, catching a quick glimpse at whatever the girl next to her is working on. "Hard at work there?" Agilene asks, almost curious at what she was doing. As she asked, she noticed two students walking to where she sat. One whom Agilene recognized as Broadshielf from the CHS bake sale. The other, however, is a mystery.

Approaching Agilene and the girl on her laptop, he sees that Agilene has already noticed him and the other guy not too far from him. "Oh hey Agilene! What are you doing here at Crystal Prep? I though you went to Canterlot High?" He asks Agilene. While waiting, he catches a glimpse of the girl she's sitting next to. By the way she was typing, she was sure she was doing some kind of coding, or maybe an assignment of some sort.

"Hello, Broadshield," she greets him with a wave of her hand. "I'm not surised you would ask that, to be honest. The bus is to blame for me being here." Agilene points at the vehicle, now accompanied by the driver who is investigating the damage. "What brings you here?"

As Ebony approaches the group he nods his head over to the bus. "Hey do either of you know what happened to th-" He stops when he peeks at the screen, the coding language seeming familiar to him. "Huh, is that C++? Or is it C#? Unless you're working with Python, haven't had much exposure to that language yet. Dabbled a bit in Java and HTM-" The student shakes his head, cutting himself off, "My bad, I'm going on a tangent here."

Morgan realizes she didn't switch to the right window and quickly swapped it again this time to a not so appropriate pictures of celebrities before she finally brought up her Facebook.
"That was just uh.. random text document... I am just browsing Facebook right now... That's all." She pushed her glasses up. "Whaattt... is everone doing here?"

"Yeah, even though I'm home schooled, my parents still want me to go out to either CHS or CPA and do my own studying, and maybe meet some new people. I was going to catch a bus home but..." he motions to the bus "I don't think I'm going to be leaving anytime soon." he then notices the two other people with them "Oh, sorry, excuse my manners, my name's Broadshield. Nice to meet you." he says to the two.
