If Pandora had been thinking clearly she'd have insisted that they escape to the refuge of the library that very moment.  Even if Guy had refused, she'd have gone alone.  However, she waited too late.  She decided to continue the conversation, giving the class more of her time with this exercise, hoping they'd finish quickly.

"Age, I don't think, has anything to do with the matter.  A student and teacher relationship is entirely inappropriate.  But, I am done with that subject.  The fangs are sort of unusual considering what people mostly hear about.  Having them retract and everything is sort of a genetic thing."  She paused a moment, realizing that she was letting herself talk more about herself than she was used to.  It was a strange and unpleasant feeling.  She looked away, her eyes unfocused on anything in particular.

“Bonjour, I am Jacques Delamotte.  I couldn't help but notice you showing your fangs a moment ago.”

The vampiress startled, shaking herself back into reality.  She'd let her mind wander to a place that was not best to dwell on.  However, it was not the cause of her sharp reply...rather, the person addressing her was.  First impressions tended to make a bit of an impact on her.  It was one of the main reasons why she wanted to be left alone and tended to be very introverted.  Her first impression was supposed to be "leave me the heck alone."  This Jacques Delamotte had not secured a very high ranking on her first impression scale.  Thankfully, Guy had scribbled something down and was asking her a question.  

"Yes, Guy, you are still visible."  She turned her attention back to the one she'd been having a conversation with.  "We just have with us someone who may not fully understand that it is rude to interrupt two people that were already involved in a discussion."  This class was getting far more insufferable by the minute.

Xara listened as the girl introduced herself and started to answer the questions.  “It is nice to meet you Sayen.”  She looked at her shirt and smiled.  “That is a very nice shirt.  Purple is a good color.”  She seems a bit on edge.  I guess she is not use to a lot of people or maybe she is just shy.

After listening to Sayen’s answers the other questions she thought she had put things together.  She must not get out much.  She smiled and sat down across from her.  “Rabbit is really good.  You have to set a trap or surround them in order to catch them easier.  They are pretty smart and a naps are always good.”  She looked around then back to Sayen.  So how did you learn about this school?”  While she waited for her to answer she realized that Sayen had missed one of the questions.  "Oh and can you think of one word that describes you?  I know one word is pretty hard but can you think of one?"

Jacques stood there solemn waiting for the female vampire to respond, when he noticed her talking not to him but to a ghost holding a writing board.  He had completely overlooked the spirit and began to observe him when he received his answer from the girl,

"We just have with us someone who may not fully understand that it is rude to interrupt two people that were already involved in a discussion."

Unfazed Jacques gave her a smile and a humble bow, “Why madame, you wound me.  I am a gentleman above all else and am well versed in etiquette.  I just happened to be dazzled by your dental display that I merely overlooked this spirit here.”  He then turned to Guy and gave another bow, “Please forgive me spirit, I did not mean to offend.  I see you enjoy writing as well, we should talk later and compare pieces.”  

He then turned again to the female vampire, “And to you mademoiselle, I apologize as well.  I pray you do not think me uncouth as I was just merely carrying out the assignment given by mingling with my fellow classmates,” Jacques then gave his best sincere smile as he looked at the vexed vampirress.

Guy  wrote, “I think this is a little different, although I’m not sure if I would be doing that publicly.” He was thinking about her words. I always thought that retractable fangs were a general vampire thing. Oh well. He watched the two of them start talking. He wrote, “Thanks for letting me know. It was hard to tell.” He then responded to Jacques. “We could compare, although I mostly just take notes. That being said, would you mind giving me your answers to the questions?” He flipped his board over so Jacques could read his answers.

"Dazzled by my dental display?"  Pandora didn't know whether to laugh or groan at his alliteration.  She didn't know what to think about this vampire in front of her and his attempts at gentility.  A person could be "well versed in etiquette" but knowing it and accurately executing it were two entirely different thing.  And if he thought that she had wounded him...she wondered what he might say if she put him six feet under...and he stayed there.  His presence was annoying and vexed her to know end.  

She smiled out of politeness at his apology but other than that, did not acknowledge his words, for he truly did not want to know what she thought of him.  His smile did nothing for her guarded heart and she wished for nothing more than to leave this classroom and to be alone.

Fortunately, Guy had managed to strike up a conversation apparently taking his "uncouth" manner in stride.  They could compare answers to their hearts content.  Pandora, grateful to finally be out of this conversation, picked up her book of poetry and opened it up to her bookmarked page.  Hopefully it proved to be the sign that her classmates needed to leave her alone.

Jacques observed the smile the girl gave him and knew well its meaning, “Such a haughty girl,” he thought to himself, “But haughty can be fun.”  With a quick glance he noticed the poetry book she was looking at and gave a slight chuckle to himself,” Oh, this will indeed be fun.”  

Looking back at Guy Jacques presented him with the same piece of paper he gave the professor, “Here is my answer spirit.  As I stated for our lovely professor, my favorite animal is the fox and is also the word that best describes me.”  He then glanced over at Pandora as he continued answering Guy, “And as for my passion, let me demonstrate,” he said as he took a serious looking pose closing his eyes as he focused on his words:

“I view the world with my eyes and beauty surrounds
All the wonderful colors, shapes, sights, and sounds
I marvel at the world around me
And wish to preserve it permanently
I do not use paint, plaster, or stone
I do not produce music of any tone
With pen in hand I create art
Using my words and a fiery heart
I work fast as set the page ablaze
To save a moment for the rest of days
For I am a poet of the highest caliber
And beauty is what I’m after
I seek it like a fox hunts its prey
Ever vigilant I never stray
So to all that is beautiful, dashing, and fair
Try and run from me if you dare
For it is only a matter of time
Before I immortalize you in my rhyme”

It was a little over the top, but that was his purpose. He made sure that Pandora was able to hear his display as he opened his eyes and came out of his trance.  “I hope that will suffice for an answer” he said as he gave Pandora another glance and a devilish smile.

Guy nodded. He wrote out "Thanks." He spied two other girls having a conversation. He turned towards Pandora. "We can meet after class if you would like. I'm going to talk to other students now." He walked up to what appeared to be a catgirl and a female gargoyle and focusing hard made a small tapping noise on a nearby desk to get their attention. He flipped the board so they could see his answers.

Sayen visibly relaxed even as Xara continued to talk.  This was a much better interaction.  She even managed a not-quite-anxious-looking smile as the gargoyle commented on how to more easily catch rabbits.  Then there were more questions.  "I... didn't -hear- about it... They just brought me here.  After..." her voice trailed off as she thought back to what had happened that night.  She swallowed and forced another smile.  "After they found me."

Then she turned her gaze to the chalkboard and wrinkled her nose in thought.  "One word?" she murmured.  She wasn't entirely sure that she understood.  Then her face brightened and she turned back to Xara.  "Freak," she declared, looking perhaps a little too satisfied at having come up with an answer.  "I don't really know what it means, but that's what the people on the other side of the bars always called me.  If so many people said it, it must be true, right?"

She had been so focused on coming up with this answer that even though her keen senses easily picked up the tapping noise that the ghost was making, she didn't pay it any mind.

Xara listened as Sayen talked and was very shocked by what she said.  “Bars?  Freak?  She must have been used in some freak show or something.  That is horrible.  No wonder she seems a bit on edge and unsure.  She isn’t used to all of this.”  She took a deep breath and spoke.  “Well freak actually isn’t a good thing.  It is usually meant to describe something odd or unusual.  The people that said that about you just don’t understand you and people are afraid of beings that are different.  That or they are just being jerks.”  She looked over at the girl that had left just before she started talking to Sayen.  “Don’t worry about it though.  You have a new life now and things will be a lot better from now on.”  

After she finished talking Xara heard a tapping noise and turned her head to see a spirit standing there with a board.  She read the board and smiled.  “Hello Guy.  My name is Xara and this is Sayen.  So you are curious and like to read.  I can relate; I love to read as well.  I want to learn as much as I can.” After giving her answers she turned to Sayen so she could answer.
