Ocean Floor Hub

Wed Aug 31, 2016 —

The central hub of the lowest level is utilitarian in nature, simply an open space with white walls. There are serval tunnels leading off from here. One is wide open and the ocean can be glimpsed from this tunnel, it is marked Paragon Island. There are double doors that can seal off this tunnel if needed. Of the other tunnels, the prominent ones hold plaques overhead. Each indicated it belongs to one of the four school teams. There is an occasional soft sofa like bench all the walls for students, along with some plants that do not require much sunlight.

A notice has been posted. An official sign now hangs on the yellow taped laundry room door, it reads: Notice: Restricted Access, Students Prohibitied.


The day is creeping to a close. Besa's had a rough week, but currently is sitting on a bench, a crudely put together Mancala board next to him. He's not playing it, but does have a hand laying on it as he reads from from a History book. The teen has been absent from most meals, in and out before anyone could notice.

The day may be creeping to a close but that does't mean that certain young teenagers doesn't want snacks. And by snacks, ice cream is meant. Rain comes down the stairs, a pint of Ben & Jerry's in her hand along with a couple of plastic spoons. She is making her way to the Ares dorm when she spots Besa sitting by his lonesome with his gameboard, which to her is unfamiliar "Hey there Besa." she knows there was some disagreement or fight between her brother and Besa, but not the details. She changes direction to head his way instead.

Besa looks up and he offers her a warm smile. "Hello Rain. Enjoying the evening?" He glancing, making sure there's room for her to sit on the bench if she wishes. "Evening snack?"

"I guess." Rain replies as she get close enough to carry on a conversation without having to raise her voice "How're you?" she sits near him eyeing the mancala board that is sitting between them "Yeah." her gaze drifts to the Ares dorm a moment before looking back at Besa "I'm willing to share." she then uses a spoon to point to the game board "What's that?

Besa nods, like that's some kind of answer. "I am fine, thank you. I had raisins earlier." Raisins. He'd a partier, clearly. He smiles again, looking down at the board, "It is a Mancala board…a board game. Tabitha made it for me." he pats it gently.

Rain wrinkles her nose "Raisins?" not that dislikes raisins, but that is hardly a meal let alone a snack. She offers a spoon to him and waves the pint of ice cream at him "It's ice cream. There is always room for ice cream." plus it is comfort food "Mancala? I don't think I have heard of that one. How is it played?"

Besa hesitates and then takes the spoon, "They are good. I like raisins." Ice cream isn't real a meal either, but he'll take a spoon full. He eats it with a smile ad then goes over the basics of the game. It's the mother of many different board games, so there's aspects Rain most likely recognizes. He touches the board again, "I enjoy it. Perhaps we can play sometime?" he's well aware that she was on her way to see Sky and doesn't want to let his ice cream melt. They're having enough problems.

Rain nods in understanding, taking a spoonful of the ice cream for herself as well "So just advance for tokens until all your tokens are on the opposite side. And whoever has the most at the opposite side wins." she summarizes the basics "Anytime you want to play just let me know."

Besa nods, that's close enough. He grins, "Yes. We can play for raisins!" He finds that extremely funny and laughs. It's a warm, friendlier noise. It fits him. He's still not in Sky's hand me down shirts, instead in some white beach cotton button up.

"Or fun size candy bars!" with halloween being close bags of those are starting to pop up in stores everywhere, along with the decor and costumes. His laughter is contagious and she laughs along with him. She offers him him more ice cream, she can always get more if necessary "It's that time of year. Candy will be everywhere."

Besa chuckles, "I do not get those from the eating hall." He can get raisins! Another spoonful, "Is it?" Halloween isn't high on his radar. "Will you be…outfitted?" Somehow Besa's thinking it will be a holiday that he hides from.

"Not yet anyway. They may have some when Halloween is closer." Rain gives another nod "Oh yeah. Haven't decided on what though. I'll have to talk with Sky. Sometimes we do themes, sometimes we don't. Depends on what he is up for." she taps the spoon against her mouth a few times "Is that a big holiday in Egypt."

Besa raises an eyebrow, "Themed?" Huh. He eats another spoonful. He's getting better at handling the amount of sugar in the american diet. "It's not…big." At all. "It will be fun to see here." She gets another smile and he steals one more spoonful before he shoos her off to go finish her snack with the intended person.
