Mall 2nd Floor
Leaning back on the railing, Lace had her legs crossed, bag and staff on the floor, and looking up at the other floors. A clothing store, department goods, tourist merchandise, and jewelry shop were crowded on the third level. It being fall season, she didn't mind wearing the black parka she'd unconsciously took from the Sporting Goods a little ways back. Black fitted cap covering most of her hair she blew away a strand and pushed off the railing.
Directly behind her on the wall above the entrance doors was a large clock. Attached to the glass surface, Lace turned to read the time. Wulfgard had wanted her and those others from last night to meet him at the school's stadium. Staring at the clock she took off her hat with one hand and scratched her red curls with the other. "Noon," she said putting back her cap. "I need to get a watch." Scooping up her things, staff slung around her back, Lace walked over to the stairwell down the 1st floor entrance.
Vendors, food carts, and restaraunts brought steam around their shops. Men and women dressed in clean aprons and manager uniforms were handing out samples of chicken, strange meatballs, and snacks. Tossing a couple toothpicks in the trash she pushed out the doors back outside into town towards campus. Getting her bearings in the shopping mall, Lace spotted Bellow High up the hill.
"I say five, maybe ten minute drive by car," she said going up the hill passing the stores. "Not like anyone's waiting on me," she said looking back. It wasn't too hot for this coat, but she stood out it being late August. Lace thought back on last night's dungeon incident. "We all go to the same school. It looked like everyone knew everyone. Those guns, that freak in the chair, tied in those chains!" Lace sighed and saw she'd come to the campus gates. "Gymnasium...," Lace looked right pointing to the buildings. Now on the campus grass she could get a view of the area. "Stadium is...behind that!" Lace grabbed her things off the ground and ran towards the stadium. She smiled, "Looks like I might be the first one here!"
Passing the trees lining the paths, the area opened up as she walked by the gymnasium. "Note to self," she whispered. Snapping her fingers, "Is the pool open in the fall? Serious question." Lace stroked her imaginary beard, "Vewy, vewy! Sewious question." The dome of the stadium came up and after ten minutes of frozen shock staring up at it with her mouth open, Lace ran inside the field. Dropping her bag in the open, she ran a last minute check on herself.
Patting over her things as she called them Lace stood with one foot atop her bag. "King of the hill...," she looked right and left making sure no one was crowded around. "Go!" Fists tight. "Coat?" Pat. "Check! Cap?" Pat. "Check! Staff?" Lace stopped to pace around the floor. "Staff, staff, stafffff? Ah!"
About ten feet away against her bag. She snatched up the pole and hugged it tight. "Gonna have to put a bell around this thing. I'm now calling you, Frankie! Alright then!" There didn't seem to be anyone in the field. "Probably a little early," she said swinging the staff. Taking off her coat but tightening down her cap she spun the pole to her back and kneeled down. Eyes closed, "Kill some time. Get a bit of practice in. A few deep breaths." After a brief silence Lace spoke out getting louder and louder. "Thunder," her eyes shot open. "Thunder!" She sprang to her feet. "Thunder cats!" Hoisting the staff above her head, she ran into the field spinning the pole, "Hooooooo!!!"
