Sitting outside behind the gym was becoming morning routine.

She took a long drag, inhaling a crisp mix of hot smoke and cool air, senses saturated with the musk of tobacco. Autumn had swept into the valley, and in the early hours before the bell rang, you could watch the mist roll down from the mountain slopes and flood over the grass. Campus glistened with dew, and a pair of shades rested on the bridge of her nose, even though the sun still hadn't peeked over the hills to melt it all away. Here, behind the gym, was the spot, no teachers, not much of anyone at this hour. Her spot, for now, anyways. You could never get too careless, even with a gift like hers. If mom caught her with a cigarette between her fingers, or worse, dad caught her, she'd be dead. Actually dead.

Esther stuck to the very middle of the wall, where it was coolest and darkest, and where no one could round the corner and surprise her. She leaned her head against the concrete, closing her eyes despite herself, deaf with both earbuds in. I should just skip first period and go back to sleep... The temptation was sounding sweeter and sweeter by the second.

This whole school was a claustrophobe's nightmare, building after building with more and more fucking students milling about with their petty issues. He knew deep down that he was just being a petty, jealous, contrarian edge lord, but he hated how they all lived their lives caring only about the next superficial thing that was marketed to them by their corporate overlords. And on days like today, when he overheard some fuckwit on the way to school mutter some bullshit about their lives being hard because their pops was riding them too hard, he wanted to break something. That wasn't allowed, of course. And his record couldn't take another hit. So he turned his headphone speakers up to full, blasting the heavy beats of some upcoming underground rapper as he kept twisting and turning along the paved paths to avoid students until he could breathe without the metal around him vibrating.

One in. One out. Nice and easy. There was no need to examine the deep parental neglect issues that haunted him, he just needed to breathe and get his shit together. One more in. One more out.

Once the pulsing in his head stopped, he unclenched his jaws, and let go of the tension that he didn't even know that he was forcing on his shoulders. Slowly the rhythmic beat of his fingers against his thigh came to a slow halt as he looked up at where he'd inadvertently ended up. Behind some building, from the squeak of sneakers against polished wood, the gym. But much to his surprise, he wasn't alone. There was a girl who looked familiar, though he couldn't place where he'd seen her. She was lost in her own little world, smoking a cigarette in what was probably some misguided attempt at teen rebellion that morphed into a nicotine habit for life. Not that he could really judge, he huffed paint once on a dare and got really into it till he realised that healthcare was fucking expensive.

Now the polite, probably correct thing was probably to retreat before she noticed he was there, but he was never one to bow to societal conventions. And also, there was no fucking way he was passing up the chance to one-up some stuck-up teen prep.

"Oi," Daemon kicked at her sneakers, shaking morning dew onto her in a thin mist. "That shit's gonna give you cancer, go huff a juul like the cool kids."

She wasn't used to being caught off-guard like this. Even before they could be sure what her gift would turn out to be, she'd had an uncanny ability to blend into the walls and disappear from under people's noses. Her own medicine didn't taste so sweet. Esther danced back from the spray with a yelp that was equal parts startled and venomous, popping out her earbuds.

"Ugh!" Esther took a deep huff and blew a particularly noxious looking cloud into the interloper's direction and punctuating it with a flick of ash. "There. I hope you get cancer now too."

He rolled his eyes as the smoke dissipated into the morning air, carried away by the faint breeze. It had come close enough that he'd probably need to take a hike to play it safe, he wasn't a glutton for punishment, and the teachers here were strictly against recreational cancer growing. Why was it that running away from his problems never worked out neatly? Why wouldn't the universe just let him brood in peace? Sure, he'd bothered her first, but why couldn't she just be some ball-less prep that broke away running so he could just feel smug and be on his way. Was it because he mugged that guy yesterday? Was this karma?

Whatever it was, he was never a quitter. Unless it was about his deep-seated issues stemming from childhood neglect. So with a wave of his fingers, he whipped out a sharpened penny and sliced neatly through the cigarette, letting the lit end fall onto the girl's shoes. The embers flickered and faded with a sad hiss.

"Saved you a year of your life. No need to thank me, I'm just doing my civic duty. Be on your way now. Be fruitful and merry, and what not."

She let the filter slip from her fingers with its partner half, snatching her hand back as something nearly invisible neatly snicked the head from her cigarette. All she caught was the sharp glint of a razor zipping through the air a few millimeters above her skin. Esther's bad-tempered frown sloughed into a vicious scowl, the kind of face you saw when you pointed a flashlight at an opossum. "Ugh. Do us all a freaking civic duty and jump off the roof." Be on her way? Fine. She turned the opposite direction, slipping another cigarette out from behind her ear and into the corner of her mouth, flicking defiantly at her lighter.
