((but then also where were we because Tia was about to do something dumb.)
Tia shoved off Marie and landed on her dad, tackling him to the floor. Unfortunaetly for Tia, she was fourteen, recovering from being sick, malnourished, and just very light in the first place. Her dad threw her off like a peice of lint.
"Marie, I've done a lot of questionable things, so I have to say that were I'm at right now is at least partly my fault," she admitted, "I'm not saying it's all my fault, I'm not one of those losers who blame themselves for everything, but it was partly my fault, and I can't change that."
"Just . . . this is kind of ridicolous, because I think almost everyone knows anyway, but can we just keep my pryokinesis down low? And . . . maybe what happened tonight? I just . . . I don't want it out in the open."
"Thanks," Tia said, "I just . . . this would take a lot of explaining to everyone else if they heard about, and I feel like it wouldn't be fair to not explain to them if we told them, and I . . . don't want to get into that. Not even with Roslyn."
Tia flopped on her back staring up through the hole she'd made in the ceiling at the sky and the stars. You couldn't be named Celestia and not know about stars. As soon as her universe teachers heard her name, they piled on the fun facts.
"I think so, too," Tia said, "I didn't go to school for long, but I remember most of the students there didn' really bother themselves with stuff so distant-- if you have everything you want around you, why look farther than that, I guess. It was dissapointing to me."
Marie bit her lip. “Well, people that can see past what is right in front of them are definitely a lot stronger and smarter.” She squeaked. “Sorry that made me sound full of myself. I-I meant you... wait... y-yeah you’re stronger and smarter.”
When Roslyn woke up, she instincively looked at Cian's body and smiled, but her smile faded as she remembered the recent events. Ari? Gone. Tia? Gone. Marie? Gone to save Tia. And Cian...? He... and her... And...something else...Cian's sister!
((So, I was going for a regular monthly check-up, but also because one of my braces fell off (again. IDK WHY IT ISN'T ME) and so since it was the second time that specific one fell off, first of all, she left it off, second of all she put this weird rubber band thing between two of my teeth that really uncomfortable and it is REALLY REALLY STRESSING ME OUT because I need things to be even to an OCD level, and now there is

Ros swallowed hard, and forced herself to look at Cian's unconcious sister. Maybe sleepiness was a family trait. "Sleepy Cian and his Slumbering Sister."
"You aren't really, though," Tia said, "It sucks to have bad parents. They aren't just screwing it over for themselves, they're wrecking it for you, too. Then you never get a childhood. They open your eyes to cruelity too soon."
(It's good now, though. Funny story: once I had boots that were too small for me, so it put my little toe to sleep, and I thought me toe had fallen off. idk why I thought that, but it was stressing me out even though I knew I still had my toe, so I had to take off my boot and check XD)
Tia started down a hallway. She quickly got a sense of where they were. She figured the prison blocks were not in the middle of the hideout, or on the outside, but somewhere in the middle of that. Going off that, she followed her instincts, turning down hallway after hallway.
"Just a sec," Tia mumbled. She slipped out the last knot, and then found she had not planned this out at all, and was let holding the net, and Marie's weight in one hand, and the weight of it promptly dragged her out of the tree and towards the ground.
angelica was pacing. how was marie doing? is she alright? did she find tia? i never should have let her go alone, whats going on? angelica transmitted to her. marie? are you ok? i just wanted to check in. did you find tia?
"GOOD!" Tia turned and stomped in the oposite direction. She got behind a tree, and slumped down to sitting at the bottom of the trunk, hugging her knees. She looked up at the sky, blinking back tears.
(Gross. Sorry. The only way I can get a song out of my head is to get another one in... For example, I currently have "On Any Sunday" from Footloose. I'm about to listen to a Billy Joel song to replace it...)
angelica sighed, leaving tia because she annoyed her was not acceptable, and she had a feeling tia wasnt going to come back. theyd have to go get her. Angelica gave maire the gun, and told her not to go anywhere as she went to go get tia. when she got to her she said, "hey, we got to go back now, its not safe,"
"tia, im not trying to boss you around, im just trying to keep you safe. you were alredy kidnaped today and i dont want you to get kidnapped again. how did you feel when ari was kidnapped? please, lets go."
"Well, I'm not gonna get kidnapped again, because there's no neverseen members around, they all ran away," Tia pointed out, "And I'm sick and tired of everyone at the black swan trying to take care of me and make sure I'm safe. I'm not a baby, I can take care of myself!"
"maybe not yet, but they could come later. im not trying to baby you, i know how strong you are,but your injured, you left a trail of blood on the ground at the old hideout tia a trail of blood. You need to come back."
angelica sighed. this apparently was the closest she could get. "fine, but its a soeacil crystal that will leap me directly to you incase of emergencies. i modified some of my extras, so it can pick up waves of panic. so if you are ambushed, it will pick up on that and send me an alert."
"its not a baby monieter, it wont tel me what your doing, it will just tell me if you have been attacked or not! if i get an alert, i will bridge my mind to yours so i can see if your losing or not. and i promise to only come if you are losing, deal?"
"i wont be "in" your mind, ill just be bridged to your concieness, so if you start to slip away, i know i need to come. and if your attacked, im only going to come when its obvious you cant do it on your own! and who knows? it might not even happen! its just a saftey precausion!"
Angelica was trying not to yell. "look, here, just take a regular one that wont pick up sgnals, it will just leap me to wherever you are if i need to come. i will just keep track of your conciesness so can tell if you are knocked out. thats all im doing why cant you trust me?"

"No," Tia said, "Don't keep track of my counciousness, just give me the cyrstal, and leave me alone. I'll be fine on my own."
"tia pelase, Im just going to moniter our conciensess, i wont be able to see what your doing or know if theres an attack, and i wont come unless you are knocked unconiuse and there is nothing you can do,
