Today is the first day of Resplendent Air, but that's not what's on Alia's mind this morning as she gets ready for morning muster.

It's a year to the day since Alia entered the House of Bells, and much has happened since then. She's become close to Alia and Jusai and integrated the three of them firmly into the web of alliances that make up Dynastic life even in this structured and relatively isolated environment.

There has also been a....thinning of the crop of students. Some left the House quietly in the night and others left in far more public shame and disgrace, but leave they did.

The three of them have survived the first stage of their education in the House, and the second will start today.

Today is the day that they will be assigned into five man fangs, the people they will live with and fight beside for the rest of their time in the House and possibly beyond. (It's no secret that many fangs go on to become sworn brotherhoods in later years.)

"If they stick me with Arsinoe, I may need to resort to poison," she mutters to Fajah as they finish their morning preparations. Alia finds the Dynast in question especially objectionable with regard to their attitude problems.

Fajah shakes head, eying all the people around. "The way she seems to dislike us, I think she would take it herself."

The southerner fire aspect's eyes drift back to Jusai every few minutes... there's nothing official about it, but pretty everybody knows they are 'dating'.

Oh, look, there come the teachers to announce the divisions.

Both Dynasts have strong Aspect markings... Malakai is a slender youth with the bluish-green tint of a water aspect, and dark blue hair. Coren is a rather tall young woman, pale like the snow, and an unseen wind plays with the strands of her hair.

Malakai nods to Jusai and Fajah, then smiles to Alia. "Hello..." His smile is something between charming and cocky.

Coren stays a few steps behind, giving the others a small nod.

"You mean they'll ride our asses and see if we pull through or fall apart?" Malakai chuckles. "Yeah, lets find some quiet spot and shoot the breeze." He even offers his arm to Alia.

"Or I will charm myself into your good graces?" He winks and grins to the Air-Aspect. "I could easily get myself in trouble, anytime I wanted, but I am more canny than that."

Jusai and Fajah shake head, Fajah rolling eyes.

No, they are not holding hands.

Well, maybe they are, but it means nothing.

"Martial Arts, and Naval Warfare." Malakai is doing a one-hand stand, because he can. "Family wants me leading marine commandos, and I kind of like the idea."

"Small units." says Fajah, and leaves it at that.

"Siege and Engineering." Jusai is still holding the fire-aspect's hand.

"It's sort of tailored to us." Malakai 'stands' on his other hand. "They will give us a challenge that covers what we can do, what we can't do, and how we can work together then improvise."

"We should pick someone to be a leader type, so we don't all run in a different direction with different ideas."

"Well, minus those two, they are not running off anyway but together." He grins at Jusai and Fajah, who seem to only now realize they're still holding hands.

Cue embarrassment.

"I volunteer the big guy." Malakai nods.

Fajah is surprised, but wholeheartedly agrees.

"And some tricks we can pull when the plan breaks down." Adds Malakai.

"And some old, tested and proven strategies to catch the people too lazy to study?" offers Fajah.

Jusai gives a nod to both. "A bit of everything, so we are balanced."

"Oh, so that's where all the Pretty comes from?" Malakai is behind Alia now... speaking almost into her ear.

"But Cynis comes from the empress too, even if in a roundabout way, so..." He grins, taking her hand. "Wanna go for a walk?"

As the group disbands, Malakai offers an arm to Alia, and starts away with her... the gardens are spacious, so they can be sort-of-alone. "You are even more beautiful than rumor said."

"Oh, good to know the rumor mill brought to you only my best qualities." He grins a bit, nodding. "So, what made you decide to be a military doctor?"

He nods, like someone who understands it perfectly; there is no need for words about that. "So, beautiful and noble, and I am guessing brave too."

"Marry me?" ...he might be serious.

"Details; I think its more important that you approve of me, Alia." He tugs her close, into a light hug. "A fruitful marriage does not happen between people who hate each other, does it?"

That makes the teen raise a brow. "Oh. You mean it's too early to kiss you and start talking about our children's names?"

"You do not have to keep enticing me, you know?" He makes a Very Serious Expression. "If you keep mention such wonderful qualities, something really, really terrible might happen..." Malakai's face is serious; his tone is... insinuating.

"Really terrible: I might fall in love, and as a fool in love, do all kinds of foolish things." The smile rises on his face, bright like the sun making the sea foam shine. "Roses have thorns, it part of their nature."

"Actually... I was thinking that if we follow Dynastic Brotherhood custom, she will be the Spoiled One, with all of us competing for her attentions." Malakai chuckles, and... kisses Alia's cheek; a simple gesture with the gift of seeming more intimate than many things.

When done right, it can, indeed. "Very useful." He touches Alia's cheek. "I think we could be very happy together, and do great things."
