The loudspeakers turned on and ordered all patients to be back in their rooms in  ten minutes.
Norizuka lifted herself from her chair using her cane to help push up. She felt a wave of fatigue wash down her body, sapping her sight for a moment. This happened at lunch pretty often, she was used to it. She slowly began walking back to her room. She was tired again and wanted some more rest. She always felt like an old lady, needing a cane and naps all the time. It was self demeaning, but she had come to accept it.

She snatched a spoon from someone nearby, straight from their hands. The poor boy didn't even notice until his fingers hit the custard he was aiming for. The boy yelped and snatched his hand back, anxiously looking around for his lost spoon. But Lynn was already gone, nowhere to be seen. She wanted some fresh air and started heading for the courtyard with her prize. With the first bite, her taste buds rejoiced from the deliciously melting taste of peaches in her mouth. Lynn closed her eyes and sought to concentrate on the taste. Unfortunately, unlike her other senses, taste hadn't been amplified, but for the moment it felt like it. It tasted heavenly.

The girl passed Diamond on her way out. His code name had always made her giggle. Every time she saw him, she thought of the various jewelry commercials she used to see on TV. What a girly name for a man. At least hers reflected her in some way. Ivory. Valuable, yet deadly, like an elephant's tusk. Taking a moment to slow down enough for him to see her, she glanced at him as she stepped by. For him, it was like seeing her blink in and out of space in a matter of seconds. She smiled heartily at him, holding up the yogurt cup in a toast. "Thanks for the treat." It wasn't a real thank you by all means, more like a mocking one as she disappeared from his sight again. She knew the guy didn't like her, no one really did, but Lynn could care less. Life, especially this life, wasn't about lowering yourself to other people's levels just to make them feel good and stick around you. Life was about simple survival by any means necessary. Especially this life, here in the Institute. Lynn had seen, on many occasions, others being punished because they had stuck for their friends, getting themselves in trouble in the process. Foolish. No one was worth being beaten, starved, locked away, or anything else they could think of. Lynn was well aware of the various punishments this place could dish out. She had learned the hard way to keep her head and eyes down.

There were a few people in her corner of the courtyard, but by showing up behind them, she chased them off. Once again, not many liked her, some even feared her for her cold personality. And again, she could care less. Lynn perched in the corner on a bench, enjoying her yogurt, relishing every bite. She wanted to make it last and would eat it extremely slowly, enjoying every last bit of it.

Hunter just watched the scene unfold in front of him and shook his head

"Such an unruly bunch, I think after all that I am inclined to agree with you Zirc, we really couldn't work together to get out of here, too much hostility towards one another"

He got up and went for a wander into the courtyard for some fresh air.

Before he could offer Zuka any help, two guards were at his sides, assisting Pyrite up toward his room. With a groan he stood, hearing that yes, he did have exercise later. Vigorous exercise. Touching his stomach, he wondered just how much longer he'd last.

Opal fell into step beside Zuka. "I'm starting to understand why Ghost eats outside. Who'd want to deal with that insanity?" Getting used to the weight, she tried to hold herself a bit straighter with a sigh. "How was the rest of lunch?"

The pain from the necklace he wore, felt like millions of jackhammers were trying to burrow deep inside of his brain. "Get back to your room." That was the only thought which crossed his mind. Never had he felt that pain before, coupled with the fact he was using his powers already to stay invisible. Reappearing to the normal world, he was feeling it, the insanity that he feared, was creeping back upon him. The necklace was there to protect him, but it seemed to be more keeping him under control. Screaming loudly, he fell to the ground, hands on his head trying to rip the necklace off from around him. But just like many times before, it stayed on strong. He kept tugging it and pulling on it. The harder he tugged the more whiplash he was giving himself, but it had to come off, NOW! The pain was getting unbearable, the world around him was fuzzing out, as warm red liquid came from his mouth and nose, when finally everything went silent, except for a small crunching sound. His mind was clear, the vibrations had stopped. The necklace had stopped and no sooner had it quit than his vision cleared up. He found himself on the floor, his nose was bleeding from falling, as he coughed up blood. For once in a long time, he had peace in his mind, peace and quiet. The necklace itself didn't come off, but as he was running his fingers around it, he felt a small broken piece. Maybe they wont know, he thought to himself.

Trying to get himself off the floor, was a very daunting task. His knees were shaking uncontrollably, as he held onto the railing attached to the wall. Now to find his way back to his bed.

"Fine." Norizuka answered, continuing her walk. Guards lined the halls on the way to the rooms as opposed to everyone having an escort or two. She split up from Opal at their rooms which were next to eachother and entered her. The guard shut it behind her and she stood in her room feeling small and alone. Get a grip! She told herself, shaking her head and lying down on her bed, staring up at the ceiling.

Hunter walked back into the cafetiria and found that everyone had gone.

"Hmmmm.....must have gone back to their rooms"

He headed from the cafetria himself to the cell area, the guards looked at him in alarm and held up their tasers

"Don't worry guys, I aren't going to do anything"

He held his hands up and walked back to the cell he hadn't seen in a long time, since he had spent so long chained up, he laid down on his cold bed and sighed.

Pyrite paused, sensing someone on the ground in front of him. By the sounds, someone having difficulty rising. He held out a hand, inches from whoever it was, and sighed after a moment. The familiar beat of technology came from his neck. "Ghost, get the hell out of the way. People are going to trip over you."

Opal went back into her room, taking a seat on her bed. As she leaned back, trying to get both legs to cooperate and join the rest of her body on the comforting mattress, she heard a crunch. Momentarily, she felt her breath leave her. Was it a bone? Her spine? She didn't feel any pain but who knew if she would with all the junk they'd pumped inside of her. Maybe her bones were finally giving away and becoming just metal? Oh god, she thought, repeating the phrase to herself.

Another crunch as she moved. She used her hand, swiping under the pillow before pulling out a sheet of paper. Relief flooded in, hot and quick. She read it quickly. "What...? Upside down?"

As usual Norizuka had nothing better to do, so she climbed into her bed. She pulled the covers up to her chin, leaving her cane against the bed. Just another day here. Oh joy. She didn't bother getting undressed or anything since she would just be up later next mealtime.

Lynn had finished her yogurt in peace, letting the outside noises and scents wash over her. She much preferred natural senses than unnatural, man-made ones. If she could, she'd become a hermit, way up in the mountains. And only when she needed something would she go to humanity and take it from them, no one being the wiser. Lynn sighed as she got up from the bench, tossing the empty cup and spoon onto the ground. She didn't bother putting them where they belonged, knowing that someone would pick them up. After all, it was cell time again. Lynn both loved and hated her cell. Loved it because it was mostly quiet and scentless, with some exceptions of course. hated it because she felt too confined. She couldn't run, couldn't jump. There wasn't much to do in it. Lynn sighed and slowly headed towards her prison. It was one of the few times she walked slowly. A guard prodded her in the back and urged her to move faster. She nearly smacked him upside the head, but restrained herself. Attacking the stupid guards would get her no where. Instead, she growled and disappeared from his sight to run to her cell. The guard panicked and started looking around for her, only to find  another, more veteran guard laugh at him and explain that she went to her cell. Lynn sighed as she entered, hearing the click of the door behind her. Just another day after all.

((Gah, The Institute feels so restricting.
I suggest we time skip to tomorrow's dinner so Opal can give her signal.))
