Seth laughed a bit as he watched James break the women up, "Nice, well done indeed.. i wouldn't do that anyday especially with a purse.." He said clapping a bit, before slowing down, "Well you know i'm the new..ish.. Master of Buffing, so i teach it. Next lesson is about Buffing an item to hinder your target... we've already covered enhancing our own this morning.."

Feigning interest in order to be friendly, James responded, "Right. 2 of my spells deal with improving my projectiles attributes." He made his way up to the 7th floor, and was appreciative of the great air conditioning. Although days normally didn't get above 70 degrees due to the altitude, people had adjusted over the couple hundred years. "So Seth, have you heard the rumor that we might be able to expand the island in a few years?" he asked as he leaned over the railing, looking back at the 6th floor.

Seth was about to bite into his apple, but lowered it instead, "But of course i have. Nothing much misses the eyes of the Masters of the University.." He said smirking.. "Expansion is good, since it allows us access to more stuff but the downside is the risk of people losing out, like if we expand outwards, it means space is taken. We expand upwards, they lose out in other ways, like people selling homes have a competitor.." He said smiling lightly, "We of the University don't get distracted by small things like that, since you already know.. we focus on research to help the island.. I'm currently researching on new advanced ways to modify materials to make them more resistant against natural causes so that they have a longer life before we need to replace them.." He said before taking another bite.

James chuckled and shook his head. "Not like that Seth. I mean we could add land to the island to make it bigger. It's just theory right now, but there's rumors going all around the police department that there's been a breakthrough that lead to the theory. We can only build up for so long, and having a bigger island could help us grow." He made a motion and continued finally to the 8th floor: the nicest and most expensive floor. Nothing but jewelry, formal clothing, and other pricey goods. He kept his eyes out for any funny business as he finished his apple.

Seth raised an eyebrow, "An expansion of the entire island... interesting idea.. that would need a lot of work on.." He said slowly looking at the shops as they approached. "What do you think personally then? Surely a lot of magic will be used, that you seem to hate, and yet you use Buffing.. i remember you learning them too.."

"Well to be on the force I had to learn some basic spells." replied James. "It was either this or summoning. I preferred this, but I learned the bare minimum for my loadout, plus 1." After looking around, he leaned over the railing on last time to look at the floors below before his replacement came to swap shifts. "Personally, I don't like the idea. That amount of magic could harm someone, or even shorten their lifespan. I would love an expansion so there could be a place for real sports or a park. Maybe a museum, I dunno. I just don't wanna risk people's lives to do it..."

Seth smirked as he held out another of his apples. "Risking our lives? Only if we do it wrongly... do it right and we live for a fair while. Take this apple... harmless no?" His bracers glowed as energy shot out of them around the apple as he dropped it. It crashed on the ground, making a sound as if he dropped a pebble. "An apple... with the skin of a stone.. but still an apple. Wanna bite into that one? Magic can be used for good, or can be used for wrongdoings...you know that much.." He picked up the apple and smirked.

James sighed and looked at Seth seriously. Not so much as his serious cop look, but a personal and deathly scary look. He said to Seth, "Look Seth, I appreciate what you're saying and you have a much better understanding of this Magerian mumbo jumbo than I do. However, sometimes magic even used for the right purpose can lead to tragedy. I don't..." James paused abruptly to quickly look back at the people for a sec and to calm himself down. He just remembered the day his whole life changed, and he didn't wanna talk about it. "... I don't wanna talk about the moralities of magic. I just want people to be safe and happy. That's why I became a cop. It comforts me. I might be one of the younger ones on the force, but I am leagues ahead of half of those officers. I did it without magic, and so can they." He realized the conversation had just gotten real there, so he took a deep breath and let out a small smile. "Now come on, let's go meet the officer for the next shift on the bottom of this place eh?" said James.

Seth shrugged, "You never really gave the class a try.. The old master was annoyed with me keeping at him all these years...and when that old geezer passed on, his last words to me was "Keep the spirit of Buffing alive.." With i do and still do to this day.." He said folding his arms as he followed James. "Your shift is over i guess?"

James coughed and nodded. "Yeah my shift is over. Brian is supposed to take over for my shift, but I don't see him..." he did see someone though, and that person was Chancellor Berrin.

"Hello gentleman! A fine day isn't it?" he asked pleasantly. "So what brings you to these parts today?" asked Chancellor Gordon.

Going to attention, James responded with, "On duty sir. Patrolling the shopping center and the nearby district sir!"

"Oh need to be formal...umm, James. You are officer James, correct?" said the Chancellor with a worried smile on his face in case he got it wrong. With a confirmation from James he turned to Seth and smiled. "Ahh the Master of Buffering out and about! How have you been Seth?" asked the Chancellor earnestly.

Seth nodded, "indeed, you must get that off-duty routine in a more frequent rate.." He said smiling as he looked over to see Chancellor Gardon, "I am doing very fine indeed Chancellor.." He said grinning, nodding in respect, "I'm having a bit of a lunch break before my next class at the University... James here has just finished his shift, if you would like to join us for a bite to eat? My treat of course!" He said smirking, slapping James on the back laughing.

As Chancellor Gordon was leaving a man in his thirties with a bit of a belly ran up to James, huffing and puffing. "James! I... Am... here to... start my shift! I was late... woo... because my daughter saw me on my way and took my hat! I chased her around the building nearly 3 times!"

James just laughed and took off his hat, letting out a small yawn. He replied, "Well Bryan... I think I'm going to head home then. Good luck!" As he began to walk off, he turned to Seth and gave an understanding nod saying, "I hope class goes well, Master Buffer Seth. See ya around!" He then began his walk back to his apartment, which was on the 38th floor of one of the living residences.

OOC: I've been on the computer all day, so I'm gonna take a break and read a little.

Seth nodded as Gordon left, and smiled lightly, "No worries James, enjoy your rest while it lasted, and keep your wallet closer this time!" He said laughing as he bit into the stone apple, forgetting he buffed it. "Ow.." he said laughing before putting it away, and walking off.

Taylor ambled through the city, looking around in distaste at all the magic wielders "Why are there so many god damn magic users in this damn place? All a bunch of lazy pieces of shit, if you ask me" she said loudly enough to make sure that everyone could hear her, she did not care if they knew she resented them, actually she wanted them to know that, she wanted every magic wielder to know that she thought of them lower than dirt. Taylor heard a few people mutter complaints about how she was just a worthless hooligan, which she responded in just leveling them with a glare and flicking them off as she walked passed, she knew it was dangerous to mess with magic wielders because she had no way to defend herself against them besides her slight knowledge of martial arts, but that would do nothing against most magic, but she pressed on none the less, causing trouble as always.
