Jasper no longer had any money, but he seriously didn’t give a hoot. After all, the point of an allowance was to spend it, not to hoard it forever! There wasn’t any joy in money, only in what it could buy. Like sweets! Usually a very large portion of Jasper’s allowance ended up being spent at Sweet Tooth down in the village, purchasing piles of sweets and chocolates for himself and his pack of Lost Boys (and some Lost Girls, too). This term, though, he was going to have to make do with a lot less – but it was totally worth it. What he had bought instead far surpassed the momentary thrill of a sugar rush.
The perfect place to try out his haul was in the jousting arena. Jasper didn’t usually have a legitimate reason to be here, not having a prince as his spirit (for the record, he had something WAY BETTER than a measly old prince). Today was different, though: today, he had light sabre swords. Okay, so they were made of plastic, but they lit up and made the right humming noises when they were swung – and that was good enough for him! He was so excited to try them out, he hadn’t stopped to invite a specific person or even a specific group of people to come down to the arena with him. He’d called every junior he could find on his floor, and invited everyone he’d found on the way there and the way down to the arena. The only reason why he’d even gone back to his room had been to drop his bag and everything he didn’t need in his room.
Setting his bag of light sabres down on the grass, Jasper spun around in the air, stretching out his arms and legs in sheer delight. Raising his hands above his head, he soared upward through the air, seeing several of his friends coming down to the jousting arena from the school. Tucking his thumbs under his armpits, he tilted his head back and let out a mighty rooster-crow. Laughing to himself, he spun around and then cupped his hands around his mouth, letting out another of his signature crows, calling everyone within hearing distance to join him in playing with his new toys.
Ah yes. A lovely day for just doing whatever. The weather wasn't bad, but there was a certain little sophomore who just wasn't sure what to do with her day. She had read mot of the morning, curled up in her bed totally sucked into the world of her newest book series. But the book she was currently on only had so many pages. Of course it was full of excitement and romance and drama, but many of the best ones were this way. Araceli sighed in disappointment when it ended in a cliffhanger, but she really didn't feel like going tot he library to get the next couple books in the series. It was really quite bothersome to say the least. Because now what was she to do?
After a while of lounging in her bed, the little brunette jumped up and ran a brush through her currently messy brown hair, smoothing it back down and she scampered out of her dorm room, figuring she could just wander around the halls and the campus until she found something to do, or she got an idea. Whatever came first. But it was agonizingly boring today. Seriously no one seemed to be doing anything that was worth joining in on. So Ara sighed and headed out on the grounds planning on just having an adventure in the forests seeing what trouble she could potentially find there. That was until a sound caught her attention.
A rooster crow. Not from an actual rooster, but she knew what, or rather who, made that sound and what it meant. The Peter Pan spirit was up to something, and the Anastasia reincarnate was going to investigate. Besides, Jasper did all sorts of fun things and she figured this would be no different. She headed in the direction of the crow and she smiled when she reached the jousting arena only to find a number of students already there fighting with lightsabers. Oh yeah, this would be fun. "Hey Jasper!" she called out when she caught sight of the red head. "Got a saber to spare?"
