Eve pushed her way through the doors of the university, her face flushed as she stumbled through the threshold, obviously in a rush by her disheveled appearance , her burgundy red hair was mangled into a messy bun on the top of her head, and she was wearing an over-sized tee-shirt with grey sweat pants "Father will kill me if I'm late to my first Manipulation class..." she muttered to herself as she glanced around looking for the room where she would learn how to use manipulation magic, she dreaded going through with it, but she had no choice in the matter and had to suck it up and deal with it or life would just be harder on her.

Maria had just finished teaching the "Intro into the Magerian Arts" class for the academy, and due to the bad scheduling of the times of the 2 classes, she only had a couple minutes to make it to her university level class "Manipulation: a Survey of Movement" lab that she taught. Teaching was her main means of income, with her research only netting her about ten thousand dollars a year and Master status providing health, dental, and a place to live at discounted cost. She quickly found the building and got to the classroom. When the bell sounded off, she went to introduce herself and start the lesson, but her stomach growled so loud that a good portion of the class could hear it. She just sighed and said, "Class will begin in five. I'm eating." she pointed a finger at her purse and unzipped the zipper, then pointed another finger and used her magic to lift up an apple. Using the finger to direct the apple, she began to eat it while sitting back in an office chair.

After about ten minutes of searching for her Manipulation class, Eve finally stumbled upon the room, she let out a sigh of relief before nervously pushing the doors open, only to reveal a classroom jam-packed with students, she swallowed nervously before her eyes drifted over towards her professor just in time to see an apple float through the air, and for the first time in a very long time Eve was awestruck by how amazing manipulation magic could be, sure she was used to her parents using manipulation magic all the time, but she was not familiar with seeing other people using it, because she tried to stay away from manipulation magic as much as possible. After a second Eve realized she was staring and shook herself out of her little trance and scampered off to find one of the few remaining seats, which was smack dab in the middle of all the seats, she quickly squirmed her away through the sea of students and shrunk down into her seat after pulling out her Manipulation book.

Crimson was a bit surprised at what Nikki had just asked, but then again, she figured that they were about the same age, and she didn't mind a bit of a carefree attitude. "The city, there's this cute shop there that sells mature clothing," she started, a slightly indent of a pout creased into her lips. "They said that I had to dress like an adult," she continued, a bit of her regular childish tone showing through her well kept exterior, and when she realized it, she tapped two fingers on her mouth. "Ah, sorry, I got caught up," she spoke through her hair and quickly turned away.

Maria noticed the last student in and continued to eat her apple. With a full mouth and feet up on the one side of the desk, she began an improvised version of her intro lecture. "Crass...mummm numm... Do you know why I use manipulation magic to eat? and to do simple things like unzip my bag and other meaningless tasks?" She took another bite of the floating apple and stood up, walking in front of the desk and leaning on the edge of it. "It becuzsh...mmm... sorry had to swallow there. It's because magic is like a language, or chopsticks, or drawing. I guess it's pretty much like any skill. The more you apply it to simple... ahm... shimple evrrday thurngs... the better it gets and the more natural it feels. Now doing this for you guys would probably be easy. You're here because you've done this type of thing before and have some basic understanding of it. But the real advantage of doing this is your magic consumption rates." Maria pulled out her Sorte, a circular talisman with a jewel in the center, glowing dimly from it's slight use. "For me, this uses such an insignificant amount of energy, that this thing can barely tell I'm using it. I'm the Master, better look like this. My name is Maria Belneer, and I'll be your teacher." She curled the finger slightly that was holding what was left of the apple, and aimed it along with the apple towards the garbage can. With a quick extension of the finger, the apple core shot straight out and into the garbage can, almost knocking it over. She pulled out a fresh one and set it on the desk. "Girl who was lucky I was hungry so she wasn't late, come up here for a minute." she ordered with a smile. She was being a bit commanding, but was attempting to be friendly sounding too. Although she had taught the advanced manipulation theory and intro to magerian arts classes before, she hadn't taught this and was unsure of how to approach these students.

As soon as the professor started talking Eve dove into her bag and took out a pen, and started jotting down everything her professor said, just studying the subject was not enough for her family, she had to excel at it, and become first of her class if she wanted to be accepted by her family. Eve tried to keep thoughts of her family matters out of her head, as she nodded every now and then to what professor Maria would say, but paused in mid nod once she realized she was the lucky girl, she looked up at the professor with wide eyes, and glanced around at the rest of the students nervously before slowly standing up and making her way down to the front of the classroom, and stood in front of Maria, her eyes glued to the ground, not once speaking, afraid that her voice would crack, and she'd become the laughing stalk of the class. Eve was extremely shy, and afraid of not being accepted by others, so she did horrible in crowds, she didn't even have the courage to address her professor, she could only stand there silently, with her face flushed, and her arms crossed over her chest.

"This girl looks pretty shy, I'll try to keep this somewhat short so she doesn't hate me haha" Maria thought to herself as she spun her around so she was facing the class. "Yes, yes. Being up in front of the class, we all hate it. I'm just using you for demonstrative purposes, so don't worry. You're not being graded or nothin', but I will need you to perform a bit of magic. Would you mind pulling out your Sorte and introducing yourself?" she asked, hoping to get the girl to squeak out her name.

Eve fumbled with the fabric inside her sweat pant pocket's as she kept her eyes trained on the ground, even the tips of her ears and the back of her neck started to flush when she heard a couple of students snicker in the background . Eve nodded quickly at the instructions and reluctantly pulled her hand out of her pocket, revealing a small and flat purpleish stone that glimmered in the light in the palm of her hand "Eve.." she choked out her, her voice actually cracking from nervousness, earning her more than a couple of snickers from the class. Eve seemed to shrink under the gaze of her fellow classmates, she wanted nothing more to just run out of the room back to her house, and hide under her blankets where it was safe.

"A natural human response to nervousness, HOW HILARIOUS HAHA!" she said sarcastically to the class, shooting the snickering a dirty look. "Although I'm not supposed to, I could lift you all up and show the difference, hell maybe shoot one of you guys into the garbage can instead to show the difference in magic consumption!" she threatened before realizing it was improper for a teacher to speak like that, although it did sound a bit awkward for a threat. She was oblivious to her odd delivery and, quickly trying to change the subject, quickly pulled out another apple and sat it on the desk. "Now Eve, can you lift up that apple, with whatever gesture you're most comfortable with, and take a shot at the basket. Make sure the class can see your Sorte, they need to see the difference in how someone of their practice and level glows in comparison to mine." Although Maria felt bad for the nervous girl, she was happy with how her lunch had actually turned into a decent idea for a starting demonstration for her class. To emphasize to the class why consumption is important, she explained, "Since manipulation basically has only one core spell, it's not learning more than the one, but rather learning how to do more with less magic and how to optimize your gesturing. Now go ahead Eve, shoot the apple."

Eve flinched at how suddenly her professor raised her voice, but she did not mind much, she was actually glad that someone was defending her, even if it was in an odd way she still appreciated the gesture. Eve gave a short nod before holding her Sorte in the palm of her right hand showing it to the rest of the class, while raising her other hand slowly, palm facing the apple with her fingers extended towards it, as the apple slowly lifted up higher and higher, until she thrust her palm out, not lifting her eyes off the ground even once, forcing the apple straight into the basket perfectly, while her Sorte glowed lightly but was bright in comparison to Maria's.

"Ahh good. Notice the difference? Since it was simply just an apple and this girl appears comfortable with light manipulation, her Sorte didn't glow horribly bright, but it was more than a spark. Nice shot, Eve? Yeah Eve, okay that's the name, committing it to memory, along with all of yours eventually. You can have a seat... uhh Eve! Sorry my mind wanders." she said somewhat excitedly since her demonstration had gone well. She quickly retained a bland look and began the end of her finishing lecture, "Now if the object in question had been something larger and/or heavier, it would've taken even more energy and caused a brighter light. Also, if she had tried to control 2 apples, it would have glowed brighter. Now then..." she continued as she pulled out a bottle of molasses and pulled the top off. "...you may have heard of the molasses challenge. We all know manipulating water is impossible due to its liquid state, but myself and 3 other people have succeeded in manipulating a high viscosity liquid like this here molasses. If you don't know what viscosity is, look it up in your textbooks." She sat down at her desk and place the jar in front of her. "To end today's lecture, I will show you it's successful completion. I'll be honest, there's a good chance none of you will be able to do this in your lifetimes, but this I find takes the most magic. Watch my Sorte closely..." she raised both hands to the sides of the glass and took a large breath in, spreading her fingers and angling them slightly. With an extremely focused and determined look on her face, her fingers began to quiver slightly and her Sorte began to glow very brightly, almost like a light bulb. The molasses rose out of the jar very slowly, and although a few small bumps and ripples popped up here and there, she formed a small sphere in front of her face in between her hands. She held this for 8 seconds and released it, letting it plop back into the jar. Breathing a bit heavy, she said, "And... whoo... that's that. If any of you ever pull this off in front of me, A++. 105% in the class. Well..." she paused a moment to breathe, since controlling liquid takes a lot of precision, focus, and effort. "... class is out about 10 minutes early today. Tell your friends I'm the cool teacher." she said, effectively ending day 1 of that class.

Eve took off towards her seat as soon as she had the chance to get away, and as soon as she sat down she hunched over her notebook and started taking notes, but as soon as the professor starting manipulating molasses, Eve's eyes lit up with an idea, she knew it would be next to impossible, but if she was able to successfully manipulate molasses at some point, maybe she could convince her father to let her study Creation instead, and then she would be able to do what she truly wanted to do in life, but she knew very well that was more than unlikely to happen but she wanted to give it a shot just in case. Eve shook herself out of her thoughts just in time for class to be over, and she slowly started to pack up her bags and make her way out of the classroom, trying to leave unnoticed by any of her fellow classmates as she tried to blend in with the rest of them.

Seth mumbled to himself as he was once again inside one of his books on Advanced Buffing by Seth Greenvale, sighing whenever he saw something out of date that he had improved...a habit of his, since he always refined techniques, until he looked to his side at the sound of a familiar voice. He looking through the window and grinned at the lesson, waving a bit before moving off slowly. He looked up to see some student messing around with Buffing, so that a chair could hold the weight of one of the bigger guys...but with a flick of a finger, Seth shot his energy into the chair with one of his "minor" hexes, making the chair lose its buff, watching the chair snap and crumble.

"Awww now why didn't you use a Buff on that chair guys.." He said, his voice raising a bit more. The students were shocked to see Seth and realised that he would be one of the only possible to undo their buff. "Next time, let's keep it safe, anyone else could've done worse than i did.." he said before returning to his book. "I expect you in class in half an hour..." He said without looking back.

Before Eve left the classroom she noticed one of the students break through the chairs, then her eyes shot up to an unfamiliar person, catching on quickly that he was the one who made the poor kid fall, she quickly looked away before scampering off to wander around the halls of the university aimlessly, she could not decide whether or not she wanted to abide by her dads rules and go back to the house and study more on Manipulation, and practice for hours before just going to bed, or if she wanted to rebel for once and sneak into the Creation class to take a few lessons with out father's knowledge, she knew most students went to all the magic lessons just to learn, but her father did not want her to do that, and he'd be very angry with her if he found out she even was considering the thought.
