Rest and Renewal

Located directly adjacent to the Rec Center is the Student Union building, housing a well-stocked bar and arcade, billiards and an open area with couches and coffee tables.

"And I had a draug try to take it away from me again in Sweden," she says matter-of-factly. "The darkness apparently can't help but be drawn to my vicinity. Can you be someone I can trust?"

"As I said, I wouldn't refuse it. I just understand that I'm a large part of why you were in this predicament."

"Not the entire reason, mind." She smirks faintly. "You're pretty good at getting into trouble on your own."

Wanda falls silent, scrutinizing Isolde to a potentially uncomfortable degree. She fidgets with the edges of her book, but her eyes never leave Isolde.

"...you're not just seeing my human form, are you?" She eventually says with a quirked brow.

"Feeling more than seeing," she says, but the principle is the same. "You're not... natural. I can feel it, but you're very natural at the same time. It's... confusing."

"In more than just your... nature. You've... well, started to change. The darkness still chases you, runs its fingers through your hair... but it doesn't... have you." She blinks and shakes her head. "Sorry."

"Well, I'm looking for a defender, not a martyr. If that appeals to you, I think we can see if we can stand one another enough to be 'child of earth' and 'guardian'. Acceptable?"

"Oh, I think my days of claiming I was forced are behind me," she says, reaching out to shake Wanda's hand. Her palm is callused, and her nails oval, giving just the merest impression of tapering to points.

Wanda's hand is probably slightly rougher than Isolde might expect it to be. After shaking Isolde's hand, she hangs onto it, looking at it closely. "I guess good nails must be among the werewolf perks."

"Ever painted them? Had a manicure?" She pulls out her phone with her free hand and begins thumbing through some searches.

"Not... really? I haven't exactly... pampered myself all that often."

She fidgets in her seat, becoming more self-conscious the longer Wanda holds her hand.

"You should," she says, apparently finding something she likes, putting the phone to her ear. "Yes, I need two appointments, short notice. ... At the same time would be preferable. ... Excellent, we'll be there soon." She hangs up the phone, but still holding Isolde's hand. Then she seems to notice Isolde's fidgeting. "Is something wrong?"

"...alright, then."

Her eyes flash golden for a moment as she glances down to her hand. Then she lets out a long breath, returning them to normal.

"You... should probably tell the headmistress."

Wanda smiles, "It's part of actually giving a damn, isn't it?" She stands, firing off a quick message to Ashlie to inform her that she's taking Isolde to Maldon for a few hours.

"Probably won't kill me," she says as she stands and squirms to try to get her hand free.

"I mean, probably."

"Folklore says silver should do the trick, but I doubt they'll be using any of that. Just relax and you'll be fine," she says, finally letting Isolde's hand slip out of hers.
