Although you don't recognize her, Cora Hale is a coiled serpent ready to strike. Every movement barely conceals fluid aggression, and her smile says that you don't stand a chance.

Liam Dunbar, adorably wrong-footed by these stronger and smarter opponents, prepares himself. With an encouraging whisper to himself under his breath, he looks at you and your other classmates.

Permalink

Aw, adorable outmatched nervous boy, Robin feels a kinship. That was her, once upon a time!

She waves back at Allison, and offers Jackson a smile, but she thinks she'll try talking to someone new this class. She starts over to Liam, then pauses - is Brian here? She's probably gonna have to keep an eye out for him, given the narration's attitude.

An average lacrosse player and mediocre student, Brian will perform as well at hockey as he is capable of.

Permalink

Hmmm... She's already made her choice, she shouldn't change it now. Some other time, Brian the Unnoticeable! She waves at him while she continues towards Liam.

"Hi, I'm Robin, I'm new. Also, not the most athletic - you look less like you're ready to enter into glorious battle with a hockey stick than some of these people, mind if I stick by you?"

"I'm not exactly the best person to be around if things get heated."

Permalink

"Sure, but you're not gonna make things heated, right? We can stay out of the thick of things." 

Permalink

"...guess so, yeah."

Permalink

You and Liam are assigned to the same team! How lucky! As you train your physical body, you also find yourself noticing that Liam moves unnaturally well for a human!

Permalink

As long as he stays calm, he seems normal.

He's not very good at staying calm. He scores the most points of anyone on their team.

Permalink

You have increased your Strength!

Permalink

Huh. Werewolf? Something else?

(Thanks, narration.)

She does her best to keep up. 

"Nice going!" She says after, "-are you alright?"

Permalink

"Fine. I should go..."

Permalink

Concerned, she steps a little closer, though does her best not to crowd him. "You wanna go somewhere quiet to get some breathing room?" She offers/asks. She's reminded of one of the betas in her own pack, who always has issues with control. 

Permalink

Nod.

He still looks human, but might not for long.

Permalink

She reaches out to take his hand - from the outside, wrapping loosely around his wrist, for safety in case he loses control and pops claws. Hurting someone won't help anything if he does. Then she leads him out of the gym. 

Is there anywhere quiet nearby? Large enough they won't be too crowded, so neither of them feels trapped.

Permalink

She can lead him to the completely empty choir room! There are many seats but there's a nice, fairly open space in the front.

Permalink

"I'm fine, I just- I'm fine. The sun...the moon..."

The claws are out now, and fur begins to appear on his face and hands.

Permalink

The sun and the moon? Must be his mantra. The Starrs use a different one, but she can still help. 

"Hey, yeah, you're going to be fine," she agrees firmly, "Look at me, Ok?" She ducks down so she can see his face, "Focus, and tell me your mantra, Liam. Please, let me help you." 

Permalink

"...the sun, the moon, and the truth. The sun, the moon, and the truth. The sun, the moon, the truth..."

Permalink

"What three things cannot long be hidden," he finishes, as the signs of his transformation finally begin to fade.

Permalink

Your relationship with Liam has increased!

Permalink

Oh good.

(She should really take a moment at some point to figure out what all these increases are about, if she remembers.)

"That's it, you've got it," she reassures him, squeezing his hand, "It didn't take you long at all to get control back, and no one else saw." 

Permalink

"Thanks. So are you...good at meditation? It's supposed to help me with my anger management issues and uh, skin condition."

It's not a very convincing lie but it is almost charming that he tries, isn't it?

Permalink

Aww, it is charming!

She laughs, "I'm an Emissary, don't worry - a Druid attached to a werewolf pack. I know about the people who go bump in the night." 

"I am alright at meditation, though, if you want some help with it? Guided meditation can be useful." Among her duties: helping werewolves figure out how to chill out. You get good at guided meditation fast in those circumstances.
