Getting to know the local tribe is more intimidating a prospect than she’d originally thought it would be. New York City is incredibly large and diverse, arguably more so than Evermore, but her experience with it was always quite limited. Her parent’s influence meant she was confined to the people they trusted and had vetted which pretty much meant that she met barely anyone new until she was in college, which was when she had truly managed to come out of her shell.
Being the newest face is doing her nerves no favors though. She has no idea if the person she’s meeting today has met her brother yet but if he has… well she already has the apology for his actions ready in her mind, rehearsed and just waiting to go in case Eliot gets brought up. She’d been told his name ahead of time, August, a diverse Initia with experience using gravity. Jas always found herself curious about the people that choose to diversify over going into mastery, which for her was never much of an option at all. What drives them to pick that option? Variety? A thirst for knowledge of many things? Whatever it is, she’s curious how her own training might stack up since she was trained in an entirely different tribe.
Much like normal, and quite unlike her older brother, Jasmine arrives at the training grounds early, her stark anxiety around being late driving her to show up at least thirty minutes anywhere and then proceed to sit there and browse her phone or read while she waits. Today it’s reading, her nose stuck in a thick book until she hears the sound of footsteps and places the book back in her bag. Time to get to work Jasmine. She offers the older Initia a kind smile as he approaches, getting to her feet and stretching some to release the stiffness in her legs. “August Orsino, right? I’m Jasmine. Thanks for taking some time to work with me today.” In most cases it’s next to impossible to tell an Initia’s true age just by looking at them but it’s pretty obvious she’s quite young, though that might possibly be the smile making her appear more bright faced.
August woke up that morning with a slight headache like he had done for the past week, although he knew he had to get up out of bed and couldn't sleep in much on this Saturday, even if he had no work to do for his job, he couldn't afford to neglect the little training he was able to muster, considering his mix of out of control and diminishing abilities. Rubbing the sleep from his tired chocolate brown eyes, he flicked his hand and turned on the bedrooms lights, not so much that the beams would be harsh to his eyes but a calm warm tone which subtly lifted the darkness of his room.
The tall male sat up and swung his legs over the side of the bed, he thought about his wife and if she would be proud of him for continuing on with his life, despite her untimely absence. His heart still hadn't turned bitter after the long months of loneliness and abandonment and he hoped that maybe it was his positive outlook which kept his powers still strong enough to use. If annoyingly unreliable. "Practice makes perfect." He repeated over and over in his head while he showered and got dressed for the day in a set of comfortable bottoms that held a good amount of stretch, a grey t-shirt paired with black/white Nike trainers which pushed his already obscene height a couple of inches but that was just how the trainers were made. Out of curiosity before he left the room he tried to make the bed with the use of gravity, the element he was heading out to practice with, needless to say he was able to do so but not without effort. Was it only his fire element that was struggling? It was all confusing. A couple days previous he had been told about a young Initia who might be interested in helping him, and the meeting was set up even though the two involved had never met each other. Over the years August had mainly been on his own with training and keeping his ability up. He didn't find it difficult as he came from a strict military background, but he knew research via books and using trial and error methods would only get him so far. He needed to understand more about the type of supernatural he was and why his abilities were changing. Could stress and lack of sleep truly have such a detrimental effect? What would happen if he was only left with Electric? Would he be able to get the others back eventually? All these questions he had no answers to but he hoped that maybe she would. Unlike her he hadn't grown up in a Tribe. His discovery of himself was at times was a surprising and slow progression. His parents had left him behind and he had yet to affiliate himself with the others like him.
Gus packed up a small backpack with some food and drink, a change of clothes and any climbing equipment he may need. It might have been a crazy idea but he had decided to hike his way up the mountain to Initia Territory. Luckily for him it was situated at the base of the mountain and not the top. When he got there, the male was a little out of breath and his medium black hair was tied back in a small bun. This was definitely the right place and he was precisely on time. Inhaling deeply August paced a few times outside the training grounds before he took his naturally lengthy strides forward. The place was empty all apart from what looked like a teenager but he quickly realised she was the one he would be training with. He looked down at her with a genuinely kind smile, she was bright faced with long brown hair and well presented, "Hola pequeña señorita. Yes I am August, but you can call me Gus if you want." he spoke with a deep caramel tone, "No need to thank me for grasping the opportunity Jasmine, let's get started shall we?" He continued setting his bag down he showed her which elements he had diverged into. Electric. His strongest. Fire. His most unstable. Earth. His most gradual. One by one until he came on his forth. Gravity. His weakest. "What do you think? I really am kinda clueless" he turned around raising his eyebrows, unsure of himself as he sat down so she wouldn't have to strain her neck up to meet gaze with him.
