    "So instead I'm seeking to enter college early. Perhaps MIT or CalTec will actually leave me feeling challenged for a change. I'm still young and mentally pliable, why waste that limited time bored and angry?"
    Probably alot less healthy actually. I mean we can stimulate you, while keeping you among your peer group.

    Athena looks unconvinced, frowning as she takes a second look at her computer, before tapping a button and shutting it. ”Hardly. No offense, but Sam is the only one who mentally seems on the same plane, and our interests differ sufficiently that I don’t have much interest in interaction with her beyond that which you facilitate. Fond though I am of you... and Emma, I simply doubt that staying here would be beneficial.

    “Besides, this is the age of internet and connectivity. It’s simple to remain in contact with people over vast distances, and I would return during winter and summer breaks, while also interacting with more people that I might relate to in other ways.”
    The girl lies on her back and looks up at the ceiling, moving her fingers in front of her as though adjusting invisible shapes and tracing transparent charts. “I have potential, and I would not want to squander it sitting in classes that teach me nothing while being ostracized by all but a handful of my peers.”

    Alice, as per usual, hadn't done much of anything to study for the test. She preferred to think tell others that she'd do better just by staying relaxed about it. So of course, that morning, while others were cramming with notes, she was peeping on the students who had gym for first period from one of her favorite hiding spots.

    As too often happened, it didn't last too long - she slipped, fell, and soon had to run off before the students she'd been watching caught her. This time, though, what she slipped on was quite a lot different from usual. "Wow, these are some really detailed notes..."

    And that was why, while taking the test, Alice had a bit of an ace up her sleeve to help her out.

    Sam steadily worked her way through the test. She felt a little bad knowing ahead of time the areas that it would focus on, and even a few of the harder questions, but she assuaged her guilt knowing that subtly steering the study group around to such topics would probably help some of her friends do better. It would probably be one of the last gifts she could give them...

    Just As Planned...hmm...yeah it's BS Alice is more than twice as likely to get an A as Athena as it currently stands (since Athena has already used Foresight twice this episode), so Athena will be the recipient.

    *Earlier that week*
    Alice and her longtime friend/sometimes girlfriend Julia had been enjoying a day at the local waterpark, and as they headed back to the changing room at the end of it were horsing around with each other, as they often did. Usually that meant getting a little touchy, but sometimes nudging each other suggestively got a little stronger than intended - and in a place with perpetually wet floors, combined with Alice's sense of balance, it lead to the predictable outcome.

    Alice slid to a halt across the wet floor, going under the opening of the doorway to one of the changing rooms, only to see a familiar figure within. There was Miranda, captain of the varsity cheerleaders and probably the hottest non-succubus in school, in a very compromising position with one of the other cheerleaders. Miranda, who was well known to have a boyfriend on the soccer team.

    It didn't take but a moment for them to hear Alice's arrival, and Miranda softly cursed, "Sh**, not her again," before quickly grabbing something from the bench she and the other girl had been sitting on. She stepped over to Alice and held out a gift card - in front of her own chest, to make sure Alice saw it - worth a fairly generous amount. "Okay, you saw nothing, got it? Do you understand?" she whispered. To which Alice eagerly nodded, and mimed zipping her mouth shut, and Miranda handed her the card.

    ----------------------

    "Hey Ophelia, now that class is finally out, want to celebrate with a trip to the waterpark? I've got a gift card, so it's basically free!" Alice offered cheerfully.

    Sam, worried that one of her last days with her friends wouldn't be as fun-filled as she'd hoped, asked every other person they came across. She asked park security and wandering families and classmates she half-recognized and a couple lifeguards and even one dude who was giving her some serious creeper vibes. Surely somebody had seen Ophelia. Maybe she should've offered to transport the girl here? No, after the previous outing where she'd been distant and withdrawn, it was better to mend the rift properly rather than forcing that kind of interaction on her. She hoped Ophelia wasn't avoiding her... >.<

    Allure. Connections 2 (security guards/lifeguards), School Queen 2 (we're not the only people from our school at this park, Sam has other friends she'd invite along who look good in bathing suits), total +4. Dazzling Display.

    Alice, wearing of course the most revealing white bikini she could get away with, wandered up and down throughout the water park, looking for Ophelia - and enjoying the view of many of the others her age in their swimsuits while she was at it, of course. One Incubus in a speedo in particular proved quite distracting as she was walking near the changing rooms, and that distraction plus the wet floors did what they always did to Alice and sent her tumbling.

    Right into one of the changing rooms, to a very pleasant sight.

    Thaw Out on scene 3/3.

    I figure that if Alice succeeds, she's stumbled into Ophelia in the middle of changing into a new swimsuit - and how Ophelia reacts depends on whether Alice succeeds in giving her Shameless.
    If Alice fails, she has instead stumbled into one or more of her other girlfriends - Julia, Darla, and/or Guinevere, for instance - also in the middle of changing.

    And yeah, wow, could hardly ask for a better shot at this final roll. Worth enough VP for Alice to still turn the episode around, opposed so there's no chance of both Alice and Sam winning (barring a tied roll of course), no skill available for Sam, luck available for Alice. That Dazzling Display is a problem, but can't have everything. All up to the dice to decide how this ends now.

    Emma wasn't all too concerned with finding Ophelia, reasoning that the girl would turn up eventually and, as a sorcerer, could handle herself. So she spent her time swimming around in the wave pool, adding just a little bit of authenticity to the named 'Mermaid Lagoon'.

    A quite pleasant site indeed. Ophelia currently half topless.

    See anything you like Alice? She teases, surprisingly, she's actually not looking in your general direction.
