Mary stepped into the school building for the first time and looked around. The main entrance was spherical in design, with grand stone steps, like bleachers, that fell away into a recreation area and cafeteria, as well as branching hallways spreading out like fingers from a palm. Paintings and sculptures surrounded the hall and gave it colour, yet the sleek steel and shined floors gave it a professional feel. There was no indication of which hall led to the dorms, so she chose one randomly and started down it. Only a few minutes later did she come across someone standing awkwardly in the middle of the hall. Maybe they could help.
"Excuse me, are you a student?"
