Bags stowed in a bedroom (and Cessily wasn't sure if it was a temporary room, or if that was where she'd be staying for good), Miss Maximoff
continued giving Cessily a tour of the school. And everything Cess saw made her more and more convinced that she was going to really like it there. But really,
who wouldn't like going to school inside a beautiful mansion?
Finally, they reached the library, which Cessily was sure would be one of her favorite refuges. It was massive and gorgeous, housing more books than she'd
ever seen. According to Miss Maximoff, it was quite the collection, including some rare and signed works. Cess nodded her promise to be careful.
It soon became apparent that they weren't alone in the library - two student, older than Cess, she figured, were off to the side having a conversation. As
Miss Maximoff led her towards them, Cessily grew nervous, gnawing at her lower lip. Okay, so maybe meeting some of the other students right away hadn't
been the best idea in the world. Was it too late to make a hasty retreat?
"Piotr, Kitty? This is Cessily Kincaid. She's a new student... just arrived," she gestured for Cessily to come closer.
Clearly it was. Obediently, Cess stepped closer, offering the pair a shy smile.
"Cessily, this is Piotr, the boy I said you should meet. Piotr, you already know as to why," she smiled. The crypticness of that remark at
Cessily looking at Miss Maximoff curiously, before looking back at the boy. Well, no, he was a man. He was tall and broad, and had a gentle face with kind eyes
that had widened ever so slightly at Miss Maximoff's comment.
"These two are some of our warmest and brightest students that we have. I should wonder why they are not preparing for bedtime, but you kinda save
them from having rush them off to bed."
Smiling awkwardly, Cess looked from the teacher to the students. Was there a curfew? What was it? Was someone going to provide her with a rule book, or guide
or something, on being a student at the high school for mutants?
"Kitty, can you make sure Cessily gets back to her room? I'll leave you all to get acquainted."
Eyes wide, Cess watched Miss Maximoff back away, panic creeping in at the thought of being left there. But it was too late, the woman was on her way.
"Thank you, Miss Maximoff," Cessily called out after her, before turning her nervous gaze back at the other two. Who knows, maybe they'd
interrupted something here. Maybe they didn't want to get acquainted with the new girl. Maybe they were going to bail on her the first chance they got.
Piotr was pulling up a chair and patting it invitingly. "Come, join."
She hesitated only a second before smiling shyly at the two students and taking a seat. "Thanks."
"We talk, yes?"
Glancing at the girl, Kitty, before looking back at Piotr, Cess nodded, still a little unsure. "I'm not interrupting anything, am I? Because I could
go, if you wanted..."
Not that she wanted to go. She wasn't even sure she'd be able to find her way back to her room without help. And making friends... well, that
would be nice.
