Dominique stared at her. "You don't scare me, and the animals can tell me when a bad Alice is around. They know more than you simple humans. However I do not wish to upset you so I shall retreat into the trees," he said raising, and walking off nearly disappearing into the treeline.
Kokoro jumped hearing the high school bells warning that high school classes were about to start and she dashed to the school. She stood infront of the entrance panting for a few seconds and walked into the building and went to her locker opening it. She grabbed her bag full of her books and supplies and walked to class.
Dominique looked over toward the school as the bells rang, and walked leisurely toward class, grabbing his bag from his locker along the way. He was late again, and the teacher scolded him. He just nodded to him, and took his seat in the back row next to Kokoro
"Today, were going to be mixing poisonous chemicals until they are canceled out by each other and are safe! Fun right? Anyways the partners for this project are...! Kokoro and Dominique, ___ and ___, ___ and ____, and also ___ and ____."
Kokoro stood up and grabbed her and Domique's masks, goggles, and lab coats. She tossed Dominique's infront of him over his sketch "get suited up." she said and put her items on and walked to the lab desks where the chemicals were waiting. She looked over all of them reading the labels.
"Mixing poisonous chemicals until they cancel each other out and become safe. This should be easy" Kokoro said happily. She grabbed a vile of boric acid and looked at the other vials. She dumped the boric acid into the empty cub and placed rat poisoning into it. She thought for a moment and sighed "guess this won't be easy..."
The teacher picked up the phone "oh no... I'll get her there right away." She put down the phone "Kokoro, the medical needs you two rooms over, they need you to take out someone's heart so they can safely repair a hole that was burned into it by an acid they swallowed. Come back as soon as you do that" the teacher said smiling.
"I'll try not to kill you later" Kokoro said stalking by the teacher and dashed to the room. Quickly she did her job and left. She'd go back and put it in again when they were done which would most likely be awhile. She returned to the lab and went to the lab desk and to the chemicals. "What should we add next?"
Dominique looked up at Kokoro. "I already tested all the chemicals while you were gone. The boric Acic is made nonvolatile by the hydrochloric Acid. Where as the Nitrick oxide Becomes nearly water when Phosphoric Acid is added," he said demonstrating each chemicals reaction.
Kokoro looked surprised "that was quick." She looked at the teacher "TEACHER! WERE DONE!" She yelled over a small explosion in a cup at a nearby table.
The teacher nodded "You may go enjoy the rest of the period somewhere."
Kokoro nodded and left the room stripping off her lab equipment and took a deep breath of fresh air happily. "So great being paired with someone smart rather then stupid" she said and walked down the hall with her hands in her short pockets. She went to the school deck and sat under a tree. All the decks and the ceiling of the high school were orchards of pines, oaks, maples, apples, cherries, pears, plums and so on. More like a forest.
Dominique nodded his head, and tossed his lab coat the the rack with his goggles, and grabbed his sketch pad from his desk. He didn't want to be alone, and let a few pheromones out, causing a stray cat the limp up to him. "What happened to you little fella?" he asked, scooping the cat up, careful of his sketchpad, and making his way to the closest deck, where he found a comfy chair. He set the cat on the chair next to him, and looked at his leg. It was scrapped up pretty bad, and tearing a strip from his shirt, he wrapped it around the cats leg, and scratched his ears. "There all better," he said a rare smile escaping his lips.
Kokoro went outside and saw a bird. She gently went over to the bird who stayed in place watching her carefully. When she was within a foot of the bird it flew away "birdy! Don't leave!" She said sadly and her Alice escaped her control taking the bir'd heart and about ten other small animals near her. She fell to her knees cradling the heart which exploded in her hands. Kokoro looked up to see the bird plummet from the sky, dead. "I'm sorry birdy, I'm so sorry."
Anokoku buttoned up her trench coat and walked into the school. She stood outside the class and heard a small explosion. She turned around and went to the deck. she saw Kokoro and walked over placing a hand on one of her shoulders "its alright. The bird's death wasn't your fault." She released some pheromones and helped Kokoro to her feet smiling. "Kokoro, don't cry about the bird. It was its time to go away, and will never be your fault."
Kokoro's eyes clouded over and she turned around and fell against Anokoku slightly crying.
Anokoku wrapped her arms around Kokoro "lets go somewhere secret together."
Kokoro nodded placing her head against Anokoku's chest.
Anokoku led Kokoro to the girl's dorm and snuck past people. She got into her room and smiled. She kissed Kokoro releasing more pheromones.
Kokoro leaned into the kiss happily.
Kokoro woke up blinking and jumped as she noticed she was missing a few things. She hurried and put them on and hurried out the door. She dashed back to school and looked at the clock. She hurried to the classroom gasping for breathe from all the running. She knew something must have been about pheromones. She could never get used to them and always lost her memory from them. She took her seat and put her head in one of her hands thinking to what she could remember. She had ended up leaving the girl's dorm... she had been on a school deck. She heard a girl's voice behind her and she completely forgot whos voice it was or what came after the voice. She smacked her forehead in frustration and started listening to the teacher.
