"And so, I welcome you to Xavier's Institute for Gifted Youngsters." A female figure said with a smile as she extended her arm out towards the ribbon, which Logan cut with his claws. Storm stood there and shook her head while turning back towards the podium and staring out at the new students. She waved for them to come on in. Storm stopped beside Logan and talked softly. "Do you always have to cut the ribbon with your claws?" She asked him as he shrugged his shoulders. "Saves us a lot on scissors." He chuckled softly while staring at her in the eyes. Storm walked in behind the group of kids and walked around, making sure everything was in order. She walked over towards Bobby and Rogue and made sure things were going smooth over there. They said they were okay and she nodded while walking away. She walked up the stairs and leaned against the banister. Today was going to be a great day, or she hoped but only time will tell for sure.
A female with long blonde streaks of hair stood at the memorial of Charles Xavier, Jean Grey and Scott Summers. A soft breeze blew as she folded her arms over her chest, shaking her head. Til this day, she still couldn't believe that they were dead. She had hoped that she was dreaming when she first found out about their deaths. It was a very hard pill to swallow but everybody powered through it and eventually got over it though the feelings and memories were still there. Cassidy turned around and started walking back towards the mansion, entering in through the back door. She made sure that no tears showed upon her face and no sad emotion whatsoever. She continued into the mansion then went into the kitchen, where most of the newer students were hanging out. She approached them and leaned up against the counter.
"Hello there. How are you guys liking the school so far?" Cassidy asked them. "It's nice so far and so are the people. Hope it stays that way." One of the students commented while the others nodded in agreement. "It will. I been here for awhile now and things get better over time. Trust me." She said with a soft smile then walked away from them while walking into the main hall, where Bobby and Rogue were doing the registrations, Storm and Hank were upstairs talking and Logan playing tricks on the students. She smiled and shook her head softly then looked up again at Storm as she clapped her hands together to get everyone's attention. "Excuse me, everyone but I forgot to mention that we will be having dinner in the dining hall, so please, when you get your schedules and settled in, meet in the dining hall. Thank you."
Cassidy looked around and seen a swarm of people heading her way. When they passed her, she looked and seen a boy was bullying a little girl, perhaps a new student. She immediately got inside his mind and her voice would echo throughout his head. 'Please, stop what you are doing.' She continued to look on, her voice would echo once again. 'Just walk away.' In no time, the male walked away from the female then Cassidy went over there and approached her. "Hey, you okay?" She asked her, the female nodded her head while walking towards the dining hall. "Nice work." Logan said, coming up behind her, which caused her to jump and gasp. She smiled while watching Logan walked past her.
She soon followed suit and walked into the dining hall, grabbing herself a plate and viewing over everyone, seeing if there was anyone she knew from the previous school year. She bit her bottom lip and moved along with the line, fixing herself a small plate while waiting for the line to move again.
