The sense of déjà vu that Alessandra was experiencing at the present moment was a little overwhelming, to say the least. She hadn’t really stepped foot inside a classroom since she was in high school, so…almost ten years ago now? This was definitely a first in her career as a hunter: posing as Miss Kinkade, a temporary Advanced Spanish TA. Usually she was dressing in a nice pencil skirt and blouse, flashing a fake badge while questioning witnesses. After getting a look at some articles and paperwork thanks to Zach, it seemed like the best path to take considering the case she was currently on. A small frown appears on her fair features as she looks around the classroom for the umpteenth time that day. It was obvious to the trained eye that the students were on edge and not giving 100% to their studies, and Alessa couldn’t blame them. Two of their classmates had gone missing, one about 4 days ago and the other less than two days ago. She was able to find out that both boys disappeared on their way home from school, and that the first to disappear (James Franklin, 17) was ‘acting strangely’ before he vanished. There were rumors flying around that he had punched a huge dent in his locker the day before he went missing, so bad in fact that it dented the whole door into the locker. The other interesting tidbit she discovered was that the second kid (Chris Meyers, 17) liked to bully James. Admittedly, it was a weak connection but it was something. She had a hard time trying to find out anything about Chris…it was strange. Alessa tried to ask a couple classmates and they really didn’t want to say anything about it. Not just because it was a difficult subject, they looked very uncomfortable in general. It was possibly due to a complete stranger questioning them, but Alessa felt like it was more than that.
The hunter stifled a yawn into the back of her hand as she tried to not feel too frustrated with herself. It was hard not to, and the fact that she barely slept the night before due to rummaging around in paperwork made it more difficult. Alessa thought this would probably go easier with someone else’s help, but that didn’t pan out. Zach was busy a few states over and already helped her out as much as he could, and no other hunters in her contact list were close enough to be of any help. All she could do was try to stay optimistic, and remember that this was her first day on the job…answers were bound to show themselves. A quick glance at the clock on the wall made her feel less on edge. This was the last class of the day and it was almost over, meaning she would have the time to explore the school further and get more answers. “Miss Kinkade?” Her fake name being called by the teacher, Ms. Cromwell, snapped Alessandra out of her thoughts as she turned toward the front of the class. “Um, yes?” The teacher seemed a bit annoyed with her, probably because Alessa didn’t hear her right away as she was preoccupied. “Would you please help out Becky with some phrasing, that is if you aren’t too busy?” Alessa noticed the tone the teacher used as she spoke to her in average Spanish, feeling like she was actually back in high school once again. It didn’t really faze her, since she had much bigger things to worry about then helping someone ask where the bathroom was in a foreign language. With a polite smile and nod, she makes her way to the back of the classroom when suddenly she sees something out of the corner of her eye.
She turns her head toward the classroom door and sees a man outside of it, looking through the rectangular window into the room. Her mind goes through the different faces of the staff and she can’t remember ever seeing him before, then she could just barely make out the outline of a tie. Tilting her head to the side, she continued to study him and go through the possibilities. He could be legitimate law enforcement, a hunter or even the cause of all this trying to pose as the first or second thing. She couldn’t help but think that it would be a shame if he was the third option, because from what she could see he was pretty cute. At that moment he looks right in her direction and she feels like she was caught staring, not knowing what to do so she just smiles a little and waves. “Miss Kinkade??” Alessa breaks the eye contact and looks at Ms. Cromwell, who sounds even more annoyed now and follows her gaze to the door before looking back at Alessa. “If you’re quite done, would you please?” She gestures toward Becky again with a sigh, then shakes her head and starts to make her way for the door. “Oh, right…sorry.” Once again she starts heading for the back of the classroom, shaking her head as a few snickers are heard from the students. She starts to help Becky while keeping a close eye on the newcomer, trying to get a read on him.
