- "Well, I figured that after spending quite a bit of time with me these past couple of years that you would pick up something about math." In all honesty, she didn't know anything about art, even though he was a fanatic about it and extremely talented, to say the least. It was another hobby that she picked up but wasn't very good at, so she dropped it pretty quickly. There honestly wasn't much that she was good at, but the things that she was good at, she excelled. It was strangely fascinating. The list of things that she was truly fantastic was (excluding math and physics, because that was cheating, somehow): chess, piano, singing, video games, not talking to people, and withstanding an insane amount of pain. She got an entire mural tattoo'd on her back, with white highlighting, in one day and didn't even make a face. Same went for her arm sleeves. It was weird and amazing and she wondered if her powers had something to do with it. She kind of lost herself in her thought that she stopped paying attention to what Shaun was saying. It wasn't on purpose, paying attention was just another thing she wasn't very good at.
Athena tuned back in when he was talking about his degree. "I would expect you to do art, yeah." She nodded her head, smoothing out her ponytail. "What else do people expect me to do with a double major in mathematics and physics? Math and physics? That's downright outrageous." She teased, cocking on eyebrow up with a nearly signature smirk since most people expected her to do those two things. No, her late youth and early adult life was wasted by ruining her vision even more so by sitting inches away from a television and playing mindlessly violent games and making her lungs cancertastic. Or even, just once, driving waaaay out of town to a Maroon 5 concert and trying to convince the bouncer that she was dating Ryan Dusick and come on, you must recognize me, I'm Athena Marilyn Carrow, you can go get Ryan right now and he'll tell you that she was his girlfriend or that he'll want her to be. Ryan came out and told the bouncer that yeah, they were dating, even though they totally weren't, and she was let into the concert and then later that night, she rejected Ryan Dusick. So, her genius had gone to waste, yes, but she didn't want to use it. Because that would mean getting a job and a job meant stress and stress meant irritation, and you know what that meant? Death to everyone around her because God forbid her psionic powers came in. So, to lower the amount of murder caused by her, she let it waste. Nobody really listened to that explanation though.
"At least you're a funny b*****d." She retorted, about to say how maybe she would go back and get her PhD in whatever but he told her to wait a moment. Which she did, about to tell him that he was going to get wet if he left, but he was already gone by then so all would've been for naught. She followed him, though, because, well, pneumonia was a thing. He was going back to the singer on the bench that she had just given some money to. Soon, she was standing next to Shaun again, just as he swung a guitar case over his shoulder, not all too greatly threatening the blonde kid to take his case as well. The blonde, and soaking wet, kid asked where they were going and Athena was about to answer that they were going to the school, but, was her name Coyote?, already answered. It's not her fault for not knowing peoples names, she rarely ever left the house. Today was just an exception. "Instead of art, though, the kids are learning the wonders of math today. Maybe Shaun'll pick something up as well." Math could be in Art. It sure as hell was in literature, and that was a type of art. She watched as the other girl lit a cigarette and she wanted to light another one herself, but then she had to remind herself that she just had one and she didn't need it, but she sure as ******** wanted it. "Alright, we're going to be late for teacher-man, let's get to getting." A shiver ran up her spine. Maybe she should've worn another jacket over her sweater, but obviously she hadn't thought that far.
Athena knew the song that he was playing before, she knew it well. She was kind of obsessed with Ed Sheeran, and even that was an understatement. She waved the three under the umbrella, smiling softly at the blonde boy whose name she still didn't know. He seemed interesting, to say the least. She didn't know what it was about him, though, it was just something. "And they say she's in the class A Team, stuck in her daydream, been this way since eighteen but lately her face seems, slowly sinking wasting ..."She sang softly. Her voice matched her appearance, sweet but with this rock and roll edge to it. She though it was interesting. She cleared her throat and turned back towards Shaun. "Like I was saying, maybe I'll go back to get my PhD, maybe I'll become a doctor or something. It'll be easy, if I learn how to Turn when I want, I could cure cancer within moments because ******** science." She joked with a small chuckle. It was true though. She called whenever her powers came into play her Turning, because she blacked out and didn't remember much during.
"I warp reality, which isn't like what Shaun does, it's something much more and I can't make full scenes like he does, just make people, or anything, plus much more. I don't know, it's complicated to explain. I also do something called psionic blast, but that's scary and even more complicated." She was extremely open about her powers and would explain them to anyone who asked, but she didn't really see people so nobody ever asked. Finally she broke her longing and lit another cigarette, holding it in the corner of her mouth. She inhaled and closed her eyes for a moment and rolled her shoulders. It was more like an addiction, to distract herself, by now. "My name's Athena, what's y'all's? Sorry, I don't get out too much, Shaun has to drag me out of the house most of the time." She introduced herself, feeling as it was necessary because she had no idea who the two new additions were and she would quite like to know who they were. She held the umbrella in her left hand and carefully balanced the cigarette in between her lips as her right hand wrapped around her midsection. She was cold, she got cold ridiculously easy but then she remembered that there were two soaking wet people standing right next to her, so she was alright by comparison. Soon Athena learnt that the blonde's name was Kaiden and he was kind of shy and the girls' name was Wylie, not Coyote, though she understood the joke and was contemplating either applauding Shaun's astounding wit or smacking him upside the head for the stupid pun.
ooc; her outfit is in her middle name~
