Herc had an office now! Of course, Herc had had an office before coming to the island, it was just...Stacker's office, and he couldn't quite shake the feeling that at any moment Stacker was going to walk in and tell him to get out of his chair. This office was blissfully free of emotional associations. So far, his main association with this office was the cake someone had left in his chair, which he'd luckily found before he sat down. It had been delicious, even if he'd let Max eat approximately half of it.

He was expecting at least one visitor today, but while he waited for her he would be trying to figure out exactly how to structure this class and write up a syllabus--on the computer, because typing one-handed was less awkward than trying to write things out with his off hand.

He'd already set up a dog bed for Max in one corner, where the bulldog could be found alternately chewing on a toy and napping.

((Open office is open!))

"Mr. Hansen?" Raleigh said, poking his head into the office. And wasn't 'Mr. Hansen' just the most horrifying thing to hear from him ever?

Zeela had given a lot of thought to just skipping this meeting because she hadn't come up with any better way to handle this in the meantime. But the problem was that she really, really wanted to take this class and if she didn't show up, Mr. Hansen would bench her for sure.

Plus, maybe if she were there, she could help obfuscate things a bit more?

Okay, she was grasping at straws now.

"Mr. Hansen?" she asked, lurking in the doorway. "You wanted to see me?"

"Mr. Skywalker said that you also knew about the San Francisco thing." You know, the one weird attack. Of which there were no repeats.

Well, it did stand out. And it had only just happened for him, so he was lucky on that one.

Raleigh nodded. "I just wanted--" Well, he wasn't sure. "I mean, this place is crazy enough. Everyone not knowing about that was just beyond weird."

"Uhh, sure," she said, giving him a weak grin. "That'll be great. Though..." Hello sudden inspiration! "...I'm worried the moose won't be very helpful. I don't think it likes me."

Okay, Zee had never met the moose before in her life. She wasn't even sure there WAS a moose, but people kept referencing it. But maybe that might serve as a good excuse for....anything. Who expected moose to be reasonable?

Well, it would be a dream if she was less terrifying. And more drift compatible.

So.

"That doesn't surprise me."

"No, but..."

=Anyone? Anything?=

::You know I'm not good at lying!::

=Right. Zhahar?=

*I'm thinking!*

=Think faster!=

*Stall harder!*

"...Can I ask what happened to your arm? Did you get that fighting?"

SHE WAS TRYING HER BEST HERE!

"They are," Raleigh confirmed. "They might want to do something about that."

Wait until they saw the teal deer. Pardon. Kaiju Blue deer.

"Why would I be trying to mess with you?" Zeela demanded. "You're like the one teacher in this entire place that's trying to teach me something useful. I just hate the thought of being benched because my name isn't on some stupid list."

"This place is weird," Raleigh told the guy he would be fighting Kaiju with in six more years time.

"It's not my fault there really is a moose," Zeela said, lowering her eyes again. "That's all on Fandom."

Zeela didn't stand up from hers. "Wait!" she said, biting her lip. "We...can't. I don't--" She coughed nervously. "--I don't exactly go here. I use another girl's name to sign up for classes."

::What are you doing?!::

"Most teachers aren't really worried about it, so long as the number of students on the roster and the number of students in the class add up."

It was the worst idea ever.

"Really?" Raleigh was all over the whole 'bad idea' plan. "Sure. That'd be cool."

"Because I need to protect my sisters," Zeela said, sitting back and folding her arms. "And your class is the only way I can."

From: [identity profile] 3girls-1core.livejournal.com
"Because my sister is," Zeela mumbled, eyes downcast.

It wasn't an answer and yet it utterly was.

Zeela slowly got to her feet. "Can you keep a secret?" she asked. "I mean, if I show you something that makes it clear why only one of us is enrolled and where I sleep, can you keep quiet about it? If you can't..." She shrugged. "...just say so and I'll leave your office and you'll never see me again. Okay?"

NFB from here, please!

Zee didn't like it, but she was pretty sure this was the best she was going to get. She heaved a sigh and explained, "You were kinda close when you linked the names, but I was telling you the truth when I said Zee is my first name. It's just short for Zeela, like you guessed."

She was rambling a little, putting the grand reveal off until she had to. Unlike her sisters, who had only told people they'd trusted, Zeela was telling the secret first and hoping the trust came later.

"Sholeh is the sister on the records," she explained, nervously playing with the hem of her shirt. Zhahar is our older sister. She's like me; going to school here without anyone realizing it officially." She should probably stop dragging this out. "I guess you'll probably want to meet Sholeh first?"

And then Hercules got to watch the delightful transformation as one sister faded and the other came into view.

"Hi, Mr. Hansen," Sholeh said, tucking her hair behind her ear. "Umm, I hope you'll keep our secret?"

"Shapeshifters are one being who can take on many forms," Sholeh corrected. "We are three girls in one body. I'm Sholeh, she is Zeela, and our third sister is Zhahar."

*I'm not coming out,* Zhahar announced. *If this all turns to tears, at least we'll have one aspect he can't point out.*

"We are Tryad, the three-in-one." Sholeh looked at him, drawing up every ounce of courage she possessed in order to speak so sharply to a teacher, "And it is not your place judge us for our secrecy. Where we come from, people die when they're found out. Even here, we prefer to be careful. It's safer for us and everyone we left behind at home."

"No one else really cared," Sholeh said, abashed. She dropped her eyes, though, because he did have a point. At least, somewhat. "They were happy to let it go as a paperwork error."

A moment later, her featured blurred and then Zeela was in view again. If any of them were going to get yelled at, it was her.

[I am so sorry! I thought I had hit enter on this! Apparently not!]
