The murky, black water spans as far as you can see. The air is tainted with the scent of salt water. Still you remain, perplexed by the foggy beauty of your surroundings. You risk putting your feet in the water, despite the fact that the water is home to a hoard of creatures. The cool water entices you into wanting to take a dive.
She wasn't expecting to see anyone there, let alone Brandon of all people. When she does see him, she instinctively feels herself begin to smile. They'd done rounds a couple times together, and honestly, Laila didn't mind him at all. "Hello."
"Yes, but unlike you, I'll look towards the sky while the wind blows through my hair and the Father's holy light shines upon me," Laila drawls out, cracking a grin as she moves to stand right next to him.
The girl was currently stretching for an evening run, dressed simply in a pair of workout clothes. The sunset turned her hair an auburn color as she nimbly slid down into a butterfly-style stretch, taking a breath.
She barely looked up from where she was playing with a rock in her hands. "Brazil, Rio de Janeiro to be specific. My family's one of the more powerful magical families down there, so we hear of others, like yours." Lílian looked up, brown eyes intense.
She grinned. "I have a feeling you and I are going to be very good friends." Lílian stretched her legs out, relaxing under the sunset. "I think the same way usually, that powerful families sometimes hold too much sway over the citizens."
She nodded. "But, there is such a thing as sheeple." She remarked, relaxing with a deep breath. "How are you liking the classes? I think that Professor Alyss can be a bit, scatter-brained sometimes, but she does know her stuff."
She nodded. "Agreed, I don't want to be working, let alone teaching when I'm pregnant." Lílian remarked with a laugh. "I overheard her telling one of the other professors that she has to take maternity leave around the end of January, so probably then we'll get a sub."
She blushed. "Sorry, I ramble sometimes." She apologized with a quick, embarrassed grin. "Anyways, I'll probably see you around sometime. I need to get going on my evening run before the light vanishes." She stood, breaking into a quick jog and vanishing into the shadows.
