“It isn’t bad, quite honestly.” Persephone watched him bring his hand up and saw it spark for a moment or two. “Really? How? Like, how did she make the difference?” This rather confused Persephone. When the waitress came around, she set their stuff down, then walked off. “Yeah, we would have made it until the end. I wish that we did stay together. Oh well. Maybe next week.” 

"Oh, well, if I hadn’t followed her I never would have set that fire trap." William shrugged and smiled. "He deserved that crowbar to the head, honestly." Smiling wider, he nodded in agreement. "We definitely need to stick together next time."

Arrows Misbehavin’ | Open

emilie-grange:

Emilie glared at the arrow stuck to the now slow-moving target, and secretly blamed it for her missed shot. The elaborate and frustrated argument with herself that was presently taking place inside her mind kept her from noticing that someone was now in the room with her. It wasn’t until she sensed their movement beside her that she snapped out of her bubble and turned her head to see who it was. A slight crease formed on her brow as she tried to remember his name. Just as Emilie opened her mouth to ask him, she felt a sudden wave of something - electricity by the looks of it - follow by the sound of an arrow slicing the air and sinking into the target somewhat miraculously.

The sight of a perfectly landed arrow had Emilie both amazed and frustrated. Nevertheless, it was easier to dismiss her awe rather than her jealousy. With a proud - maybe even cocky - grin on his face, Emilie knew who he was, not by name but by face. Faintly but audibly, the remaining electricity that he’d released onto to the arrow still crackled and buzzed. Crossing her arms, Emilie glued her eyes to the side of his face. “Can you do that without your powers?”

William jumped a bot, having forgotten she had been there. He glanced at her and shrugged, face a bit read as he scrambled for words. “Uhm, well, not as well…” he said quietly. Without as much electric charge his focus and strength would be much less then before. But is was why he was here in the first place. 

Readying another arrow, he struggled a bit more with the bow the, time, the knowledge of her gaze not helping much either. William sighed and took a deep breath, closing one eye, concentrating, and firing again. This time the results weren’t as great, the arrow almost missing the target, He figured that would happen, sighing and lowering the bow with a shrug. “Yeah, not as well.:

celebration | William

William sat alone near the fire, watching the electricity arch between his fingers. It was always what he did then bored or nervous. And he was a bit of both. It was bad enough he hardly knew anyone, but considering the incident with Adrian in the games the only Villain he would be happy to see was Alex, who seemed busy at the moment. Sighing, he looked down at his feet, sitting quietly.  

We actually won!

Alright I’m going to let you in on a secret. If you tell anyone I will kill you. In. Your. Sleep. I’m really bad with girls too. I have no idea what the hell I’m doing with Devin. She’s all over the place and knows what she’s doing while I’m just trying to keep my head above water. But here’s the difference. Attitude, it’s all about how you present yourself. I just keep faking like I know what I’m doing and it all works out. You just have to believe in yourself and you’ll do fine.image

Heh, I kind of had a feeling it was a facade. I’ll keep it quiet, uh, buddy.

“Yeah, but the villains aren’t happy. I live with three of them, and they’re not pleased at all, it seems. They’re rather angry, actually. I’m really proud of Alice, though. She’s so sneaky.” Smiling, Persephone looked out the window and ran her fingers through her hair. “So, how are you doing?”

"Oh, that must suck." William nodded as he finished refueling himself, pulling his hand back onto the table and trying to hide the way it sparked at first. "Honestly, if it wasn’t for Alice I probably wouldn’t have gotten Adrian out." William laughed softly, smiling at her as she looked away. "I wish I would have found you in the games. Maybe we would have, uh, stayed in the whole thing." he shrugged.

Arrows Misbehavin’ | Open

emilie-grange:

Somewhere in the room, too quietly for Emilie to hear, the simple round clock that hung on the wall ticked away the minutes she seemed to spend with her brow furrowed in concentration. Her eyes were trained on the center of a moving target. Emilie had gone over the exercise more times than she could count at this point, yet it still looked to her as if the dashing red circle on the center of her target mocked her after every arrow that missed its mark. This time though, she was much more tense, much more focused, or at least that’s what she told herself. The girl’s eyes narrowed - she wouldn’t miss. Emilie let silence stretch out unbroken, not even by a soft sigh or the most subtle intake of breath. Had anyone been with her in the room, it would appear to them that the girl was resting the fate of the world in that one arrow. For what it was worth to her, it might as well.

Her arm shook momentarily from the strain of pulling on the bowstring, but not enough that it ruined her shot. At the same time one more tiny bead of sweat ran down the side of her face, her fingers slipped swiftly from their grasp on the bowstring and the arrow to send the latter flying directly towards the target. Had she decided to release the arrow a small fraction of a second later, her shot would have been much different. However, Emilie was now staring at an arrow that was roughly a centimeter too far from its mark. The target had been moving to fast and there was no knowledge that could have made it any different. Emilie hated it - Emilie hated not being able to rely on her power. And thus, physical activities had become her second worst enemies. Resigned to the fact that she should probably call it a day - or rather a night -, she sighed and tossed her bow on the weapons table nearest to her. “Shit.”

William walked into the training area. When he noticed the other person in there he sighed, hoping it would be empty. He needed to train. His powers couldn’t count on pure electricity to win battles, the games had proved that. 

Walking over by the girl, he avoided eye contact, taking the bow and arrows from the table and standing in position, Readying it, William took in a deep breath, trying to forget the girl was there. The first few shots he would use his powers, seeing how it affected the shots.

The electricity flowed through his arm, focus sharpening as he kept his eyes tight on the target. Letting out his breath, the arrow zipped to the dead center of the target with a thunder-like crack. This caused William to grin a bit, proud of his shot and resting his arms for a moment.

“That they won, I mean.” She smiled, then looked down at her own menu. A small waitress came around to ask them if they wanted anything. “A hot chocolate and maybe a  muffin?” The waitress nodded, then turned to William. “Anything for you then?” She raised an eyebrow and waited for him to respond. 

"I’ll, uh, take the same." William said quietly  Once she left he took a deep breath. Noticing the wall socket under the table, he reach down, taking in the electricity with a soft sigh. "Oh, yeah." he smiled widely and nodded "I knew that we could."

Persephone laughed and shoved her hands into her sweater pockets. She was going to not be able to sleep, she swore. “Sure, let’s go there.” Persephone smiled a bit back as she walked to the cafe with him and picked a seat where ever. “So… are you happy about the heroes?”

William sat with her, smiling and fiddling with his fingers on the table. “Well, what do you mean?” he asked. “I mean, we seem to have some pretty good ones.” William was pretty satisfied with the heroes, at least the ones he had talked to. He excepted them all to show the Villains just how powerful they were.
