(TWO MONTHS LATER)
Once again, it was time to restock on snacks and stuff for the academy. New students were coming in, and plus breakfasts, lunches and dinners had to be made every day. This time, it was Grace's turn to go out. Seeing as she was WAAAAAAAYYYYYY older than eighteen, she was allowed to go par herself.
Walking down the market streets casually, she noticed some guy wearing a beanie and sunglasses. Granted, it was quite bright today, but...not bright enough to need to wear sunglasses. Some idiot trying to hide his identity so he can go and rob someone? Grace wondered. Not today...or any other day. She walked up to him, and grabbed him par the neck of his shirt. Pinning him against the mur he had just been standing against, she ground his face downwards onto the ground. "WHO ARE toi WORKING FOR?!" she demanded, bashing his back into the ground multiple times. "NO ONE!" he yelled back. "THEN WHAT'S WITH THE DISGUISE, HUH?? toi PLANNING ON ROBBING SOMEONE?!"
She placed two fingers on the man's neck, right under his jaw, like she did with Earthen. "Liar." she insulted him, taking her fingers away. The dude gave her a rather shocked and frightened look. He knew who Grace Gamma was, but he had no idea what she was capable of.
Nor how strong she was.
"I'm not lying! My ears get cold easily and my eyes are really sensitive!" he pleaded, trying to fake his way out of this weird situation. Grace was still siting on haut, retour au début of him, her feet placed on the ground. "I can feel vibrations through the ground." she told him. "When a human lies, their cœur, coeur rate and breathing increase. I can feel this movement through the ground, so don't bother faking your pathetic way out of this. toi can't win."
"OH MY GOD!"
Grace whipped her head over her shoulder, to see a woman with short, brown hair staring at her, mouth agape. "You're Grace Gamma!" she exclaimed excitedly. "Can I please get a photo and an autograph?"
"Certainly." Grace replied. She hopped off the man, but extracted different bits of earth to make a strong bind around his wrists. He wouldn't be going anywhere.
Standing close to the woman to get in the picture, Grace flashed a smile (which was rare to see her do, if she smiles with/at you, you're very lucky), and waited for the flash in the iPhone. After that, she took out a pen and paper from her pocket, and scribbled down her name.
"There, go montrer it off to your Friends and be proud of yourself." Grace a dit to the woman. She bowed, and moved along.
Satisfied with her fan service, Grace walked back over to the guy tied up on the ground, par the ground, par his wrists. "Looks like toi won't be getting far, huh?" she wondered aloud, neighing his jaw with her foot. He attempted to bite it, but she dislocated his jaw with a good kick before he could. Giving out a short cry of pain, Grace extracted the earth back to where it came from, and dragged the robber par the scruff of the neck to the local prison.
"Thanks for bringing him in, Miss Gamma." an officer a dit to Grace, chant things off on a clipboard. "We've been trying to arrest him for six months now. Thanks to you, we need not worry anymore."
"I'm just doing my job, sir." she replied, taking a small bow in respect. She handed him a card to Headman Martial Arts Academy. "This is where I'm staying currently. If toi ever need me again, call, and ask for Grace Gamma. No criminal can outrun a Renya, sir."
"Thankyou very much, Miss."
"Anytime. I'll be going now, if you'll please excuse me?"
Grace walked out the door of the office, and to the cell where the man she had just taken in was sitting on the ground. She bent down to match their eye levels. When she made this position, it increased her level of sass.
"Looks like toi won't be going anywhere too soon, huh, big boy?" she teased with a mocking smirk. "Don't get too full of yourself, little girl." the criminal spoke back. "I'll escape. It'll be easy, just digging out with any odd thing they drop around here carelessly."
"What, toi mean with this toi were keeping in your jacket?"
"Exactly, I will escape using that rusty old cuisine spoo—"
"Why toi little..."
"That's what toi get for calling the almighty Grace Gamma 'little'. No one gets away with such a thing as that."
"I could always urinate on the bars."
"Not only kinda gross, but also, they have cameras. toi probably don't know this, but police have to study science aswell. Fingerprints, speed limits, all of it. Law relates to science closer than toi think. Anyways, even if toi did ever escape, I'd catch toi again."
The robber turned his head away, realising he'd never get out, not when she was around in Korham...or any dimension, heck. "I'll be seeing you, I guess." Grace said, standing back up, and leaving the *gaol.
Grace returned with her fabric bags of groceries, bonked them down ours the entrance to the academy's kitchens, and stretched with a hum. "Here cooks, I bought everything we'll need for meals." she said. After sometime of unpacking everything, she left saying she was willing to make breakfast tomorrow morning. She knew she wasn't much of a morning person and a heavy sleeper, but she was a good cook, and Reddie knew that well.
She wanted to prove it to the rest of the school aswell.
Grace walked back to Kouh's office, as she promised she'd help him with a painting. Kouh was really good at detecting tones is colour and monochrome pieces, he just really sucked at shape. Grace had offered to help him with his latest plage landscape painting.
On her way there, she had to pass the beginner students' dorms and rooms. This included Reddie's and Ula's rooms. As she walked past, Reddie burst out of his room, and almost landed on her, not expecting her to be there. "GRACE! GLAD YOU'RE BACK!"
"I'VE BEEN BUGGING TO TELL toi THIS ALL DAY,"
"Out with it, then."
"Daybreak's gone missing."
*Gaol: British/sometimes Australian spelling of 'jail'.
