Surrounded By Strangers [Finley, Sioan]
Date: Lughnasadh | 3 Bácáil | 1722 ATA
Time of Day: Late Afternoon
Weather: Fair, sunny
Location: Noble's Acadamh Dormitories
---

Fflur burst breathlessly into the dorm, and locked the door tightly behind her. She was relieved her roommate was not present during this moment. Finally able relax, she slowly made her way to her side of the room. Wet footprints trailed behind her on the carpet. Her dress was sticking to her skin. She ran her hand through her hair, and found a clump Water Hawthorns and dirt mangled her braids. She hurried over to the washroom, unbraided her hair over her shoulder, and tipped the basin over her head, careful in not using the limited amount of water available.

She smelt like a dew pond -- a mixture of stagnant water, dirt and dead fish. After she could feel no more clumps of earth and grass in her hair, and dried it with a towel, she quickly discarded her wet clothing, and ran back out to change into something dry from her wardrobe. It was then, she finally gave in to her exhaustion, and fell back onto her bed.

She stared up the grey ceiling, and replayed the event that happened earlier. Lewella find her? The Lugh girl and her golden pack should have had archery lessons at this time. She was in the overgrown, and abandoned garden, a place where well-bred girls like them wouldn’t want to venture over. And yet, they did, and they dropped her in the stagnant pond in the garden. She sighed. This would mean would need to find a new hiding place now. Pity, that she had to abandon her newfound friends, the sparrows and the blackbirds, but it would be for the best. They didn’t like the disturbance that she had brought onto them. And it was fortunate that her new roommate were not acquaintances with Lewella, so she wouldn’t let them in this room yet. Although, she wondered if it was only a matter of time.

RE: Surrounded By Strangers
Business at the Inn and her mother's stand had been bustling, this morning - and the last little while had kept Finley too busy to properly visit her dear friend Sioan. Not that that usually stopped her from dropping in, but she'd had to take her learning among the common folk for the last few weeks - not that she minded overmuch.

Today, however, glorious delightful today she would steal her friend away for yet another delightful adventure- or, at the very least, to spend time with her.

She hummed under her breath as she slunk into the dormitories - a familiar enough face by now that she went unhindered ( though she had a purse hidden away with some of her own trinkets in case a palm required a little grease ) and sauntered over to the door to her dear friend's room, testing the knob before rolling her eyes and rummaging around for her usual way in.

The girl grinned as she coaxed the lock open, extra picks held between her teeth, then pushed it open with one hip, sauntering in with the air of someone sure they belong - and pushing the door shut with one gloved hand as she stepped in, rubbing her hands together.... And coming up short as she realized she was not, in fact, alone in the room.

She blinked, wrinkled her nose at the smell, and glanced down at the wet footprint she'd stepped into, before her attention moved back up, blue-gray eyes - her brother had left her eyes changed when he'd left - examining the girl on the bed with keen interest.

"Oh. Hello, there. Didn't think there'd be someone inside! Who're you?"

RE: Surrounded By Strangers [Finley, Sioan]
Just when she was about to close her eyes and doze off, she heard a sound coming from the doorknob, and bolted herself into an upright position. The resistance from the lock sounded like it was being picked. Is it a thief roaming around the dorms. What should she do? Should she scream? Make some noise so it would attract attention? Or grab the knife from her roommate’s drawer?

Before she could come to any of her conclusions, the door had already flung open. A red-haired girl sauntered in, with picks in her mouth. Her long coat flowed behind her, as she wandered into the room without a care. She did not act like a thief in Fflur’s impression, but then, looks can be deceiving. She did not answer to the girl’s seemingly harmless question, instead she said:

“You can take anything from my side. I don’t have much attachment to my belongings,” she gestured her side of the room, as her eyes stayed on the strange, grey-eyed Nemain. It would be better this way. If she were to steal from her roommate, the girl might think it was her at fault.

RE: Surrounded By Strangers [Finley, Sioan]
Finley blinked, slowly, hands still in her pockets, then reached up to gather her picks and secret them away, glancing around the room, uncertain if, perhaps, she'd snuck into the wrong one...

But no, Sioan's coat was right there...

She... Hadn't realized her friend had acquired a roommate.

She stared, lips slowly quirking into a bemused grin - recognizing the girl's colours from the wolf boys, probably a flidais... - and sauntered over to stand at the girl's bedside, paused, then gave her jacket a quick little snap, straightening it as she bestowed the mysterious unknown her best, most charming grin.

She holds out one hand and winks. "How about your name?"

RE: Surrounded By Strangers [Finley, Sioan]
Amber eyes stared blinking at the girl had just entered. She grinned at Fflur like her previous statement meant nothing. Maybe it was. She didn’t seem particularly interested in the objects in the room. There was a brief glance at her roommate’s coat, a strange radical dress design which had perplexed Fflur at first, but she had grown accustomed to its look. That made her look at the stranger more carefully; piece on her chest seemed to of a strange design as well. The coincidence, and the similar jovial outlook meant maybe they’re friends?

“Fflur Ui Flidais,” she spoke in a soft voice, then hesitantly she asked, “are you a friend of Sioan?”

RE: Surrounded By Strangers [Finley, Sioan]
As if she spoke of the devil, a flash of pink appeared behind the Nemain. “Finley! I didn’t expect you to come so soon, otherwise I would have left a key for you.” she peered over, and saw her shy roommate sitting on her bed. “I see that you’ve met Fflur. Fflur, this is Finley. Finley, Fflur!” The carnation-haired girl cheerfully introduced the two, until she stepped into the room and noticed the wet footprints, and the stench coming from the bathroom.

She strode over, and saw the source was Fflur’s dress which she had worn in the morning. “What happened, Fflur? Did someone push you into a pond?” she asked the Flidais, who was avoiding her gaze. Sioan paused, and put some pieces together since she had met her new roommate, “Was it that Lugh girl, Lewella?”

“No, I just slipped myself,” the Flidais apologised.

“You don’t need to lie to me, Fflur,” Sioan said sternly to her roommate for the past several weeks, “I’ve seen her gang following you around. Do you know where they are now?”

There was a long pause before Fflur answered, “At the archery grounds.”

Sioan whirled around to Finley, and tugged the Nemain by the hand, “Let’s go! Someone needs to be taught a lesson!”

RE: Surrounded By Strangers [Finley, Sioan]
"Finely Ui Nemain, of Fine RedBird." The girl grinned, "and Sioan is, indeed, one of my co-conspirators in mischief and chicanery, as well as wonderful dress sense. Afraid she forgot to get a key passed my way. Sorry if I startled you, Fflur." She winked, at this, then blinked, gaze turning toward the door as Sioan entered.

She listened, gray eyes focused and owlish, then grinned, big and broad. "I think I recognize that name..." She allows herself to be pulled from the room, chuckling. "Sounds like a plan."

RE: Surrounded By Strangers [Finley, Sioan]
Fflur’s gaze tore away from Finley, and trailed after Sioan, after the other girl had noticed the odour coming from the washroom, and peered over the dress she had discarded. She winced internally, and cursed herself for not cleaning the dress sooner, before anyone could see it.

She was hesitant to answer Sioan’s subsequent questioning. She could already feel the pressure on her shoulders, as the two stared at her, waiting for answers. Finally, she gave in, and prayed that they wouldn’t think ill of her when she did.

Sioan seemed to have the stronger reaction than her friend, though not in the way she had expected.

“ ‘Teach someone a lesson’?” she echoed Sioan’s declaration. It took her a couple of seconds to realised what the girl meant. Her eyes widened as she began to protest.

“Wait no, you don’t need-”

The duo left her behind as Sioan led Finley out to confront her bully.

RE: Surrounded By Strangers [Finley, Sioan]
Sioan marched through the corridor, like a general leading her army to battle, with her army being Finley. She and the Nemain were more than enough to take on the people they were about to confront. She had never liked the way those Ua Lugh girls prey around weaker students, particularly the Flidais. Though, she never witnessed them bully someone in the open. They knew how to hide their acts from the eyes of the Tutors, but most of the other students knew they were doing it.

It infuriated her. She thought the Blood Feud was a thing of the past, while watching Eadoin, the Wolf Brothers and Seren able to have drinks together without going at each others throats. But after she came to this Acadmh a year ago, she began to see that it was still something going strong, and the saddest thing to see, that it was her mentor’s Clann, that seemed to be the instigators this time. No, this was going too far. She is going to warn this person of the consequences of her acts.

“You heard of this person, Finley?” she asked her friend, and wondered how Finley had heard about the snobby Ua Lugh noble.

RE: Surrounded By Strangers [Finley, Sioan]
Finley throws Fflur a wink and a thumbs up as they leave the room. "Don't worry about a thing!"

She chuckled as she sped her pace to keep her steps in line with Sioan's. "Mnh? Possibly. You know how we hear things, on and off. May have had a little trouble with a Lugh of her description, once, when she recognized me in the Margadh, but, hey..." She waggled her eyebrows. "A curt explanation that my big brother could bring her Flaith's hammer down on her uppity arse did enough to get her t' back off without too much trouble, y'know? Folk like that, they'll do whatever they think they kin get 'way with, up until you put 'em in their place and tell'm they're not the only one with a blade to wave around."

She grins, wide and matching her the mean smirk of the twins when they've darker mischief in mind. "Not the strangest thing to run into, though."
