Their only clue led them to one of the most famous joints in the town. Shepard stood idly by the door, waiting for the others to catch up. The back of the receipt was their only path. They needed to follow that clue to the source. A chilling gust of wind blew down between the buildings, sending a shiver through the students. With the promise of pumpkin spice everything in the near future, they entered as casually as possible, Shepard leading the head of the group with a casual stroll, eyeing his name on the Wall of Fame, then his eyes guiding down the multitude of names on the wall. How would they know who was who?

He stopped by the counter, hand tucked around the folder. Hopefully, they could get some sort of lead. "We need to talk to some employee." He whispered to the group, catching the pichu's gaze. "Preferably someone who was there."

ooc; Go ahead and post as them gathering, then we can roll (One d20) for convincing the cashier/ employee. c:

Hye-Rin followed not too far behind Shepard. He'd been catching her up on what had gone down on the first day and the investigation that had been launched. It most certainly seemed like a serious situation, and detective work was something she was more than willing to get her hands dirty in. Or rather, help out with. She had taken the time to review the clues that they had access to, and she generally agreed with the sentiment to come to the Burger Bar.

With the burst of wind blowing through and coming right to her, despite being rather short in comparison to the crowd, Hye-Rin drew her jacket closer around her and nodded.

------------

Maeve held up the end of the group, walking in her customary military position. She had skipped out on training to come here for the investigation, something that took a good bit of convincing to do. Classic to her style she had asked to serve more as a guard, considering they had a good handful of students. Her gaze focused mostly on Shepard, who honestly was probably the most at risk. There hadn't been any more incidents that she knew of, but it was just too... organized for nothing else to happen.

Stephen had no idea what was going on, he was just at Preston's to get some lunch. But then he saw a bunch of students walk in, with Shepard leading the pack. He waved to his best friend and smiled. "Heyyy Shep! What's with the posse you've brought in here?" he asked.

She could've led them there blindfolded. The diner was like a second home to her, even if long five hour stretches made her Saturday and Sunday shifts feel like a forced weekend stay with an estranged parent. In the most faded fringes of her memory, she could remember swiveling in the stools and getting served milkshakes like royalty. It didn't hurt to be the boss' kid.

And in the library, it'd felt like a personal attack, newfound conviction coursing through her. This killer walked into her family's sacred space, and his face was hanging on the wall. But standing here now, peeking into the kitchen from the door frame, she was almost wilting underneath Shepard's glancing look. Dad could be... well, stupid, sometimes, when he felt like she was messing with anything that might kill her. Which were most things in this world, although he made exceptions for hyper-sharpened kitchen cutlery and hot stoves. The lights over her head dimmed and flickered as some friend of Shep's spoke out, drawing attention to their huge party.

Faced with the first obstacle, it started pressing on her now that things might not just straighten themselves out so smoothly. "I can get my dad to talk," she said, fiddling with her thumbs behind her back. Probably. "But we probably shouldn't tell him... everything. You think? If he knows we're figuring this out on our own he's just going to tell us to butt out of it."

Now that a few days had passed since the incident during the school's opening, Brianne had a bit more of a pep in her step as she walked into the restaurant she and her fellow "investigators" were led to by the evidence they'd seen. Some of the food offered got her attention. She could bring some home for her dad and her siblings, depending on how long they'd stay here. Moving her caramel gaze away from the tempting menu, she listened to Cailin's suggestion with interest. "That sounds like a good start." She glanced at the other members of the group as she spoke, then to one of Shepard's friends who happened to be sitting at one of the tables. "Though maybe a large group like this might be a bit suspicious?" She gave a wry smile before eyeing the Walls of Fame and Shame, respectively. 'I wonder, could I do it?' Physically, sure, but would she ever be allowed in here again?


probably under construction forever lol

"It's even more suspicious to comment on how suspicious your group seems." A voice cut through the group's conversation. Behind them stood two girls, one was a leggy teen with straight red hair that fell to her waist. However, the most stand out feature of hers wasn't that, but a pair of red horns that stemmed from the base of her skull. She looked artfully disinterested as she played with the straw in her milkshake, the listless stirring serving as the only hint that she wasn't as cool as she played it.

Beside her was another, a younger girl who seemed out of place next to the older teen. She was a sharp contrast, with short black hair and over-sized hoodies that screamed, don't look at me. But her eyes shone with determination and a hunger to know, something that everyone that had gathered here all shared. Claire had been there when the assassination attempt took place, she'd watched helplessly as it all went down. What if someone had been hurt? She was weak still, even despite her training, her hands trembled. Her mother wouldn't have flinched, but she did. No more flinching, she'd told herself.

"Before you ask, I'm here for the same reason as you, Shep. Dad thinks that his passwords are secure, but I know him. It didn't take too much to crack it and read his files." She said this airily as if it was a piece of cake, not the hours of frustrating blind typing that it actually was. "As for short-stack, I caught her trying to sneak into the morgue at the hospital. Figured she'd be better with us than without."

"I have a name." Claire finally spoke up, though it wasn't particularly intimidating. Not that it was really possible for someone of thirteen to be intimidating, she looked about as fierce as a kitten. It didn't help that she was wearing sunflower pins in her hair. "I'm Claire, nice to meet you. Please let me help, I promise that I won't be a hinderance."

Wordlessly drifting away from the back of the group, the petite boy kept a tight grip around the large duffel bag's strap and sauntered toward the cashier. "Just a small vanilla milkshake, please and thank you." His mask playfully danced its way to a happier emote as Aine dropped the exact amount needed on top of the counter, the coins clanging against one another atop the dollar bills. He didn't wait for the cashier to say anything before he spun on his heel. Plucking the receipt from the machine, the pallid student flopped onto a random seat and turned his head toward the portrait-littered wall.

Though his lips parted in what appeared to be a sigh, he projected his voice to the ears of his fellow faux-investigators, jabbing at their lack of caution in a teasing sing-song, "Really now, you guys don't know how to avoid suspicion, do you?" Aine's suggestion came off as demanding, like a king would order his subjects to follow without question, betraying his relaxed and slouched posture. "Order something and take a seat! And don't sit all in the same place either. I'll make sure we can still communicate, so sit wherever you like before I decide to take a nap."

Blue eyes flickered from the counter to Cailin. "Yeah, try ta' keep what you say to a minimum." He nodded, pushing the doors open to his normal hangout.

The blond's eyes met Stephen's as soon as he spoke, a grin crossing his face. Quickly he took Hye-Rin's hand and joined his best friend at the booth, sliding in after Hye-Rin. Leaning forward as far as he could, Shepard hurriedly whispered away to his friend, unknowingly still holding Hye-Rin's hand. "We have a lead on the man and group that shot at my dad. Long story short--it leads here. We think one of the losers on the wall of shame is someone in that cult." Shepard paused, eyes moving toward the most recent picture on the wall of fame. The grin widened. "Well, won't cha' look at the most recent winner up there?"
Relishing in his victory had been short-lived as soon as others began shooting words and quips at him.

Legs pointed out of the booth, Shepard listened to the two girls speak, and after a moment nodded. "I'm glad we are on the same page then. Welcome to the team, Claire." He winked, eyes catching Aine plop down on another seat, then turned back to Stephen and Hye-Rin. "'Kay, sorry. Stephen, this is Hye-Rin. Hye-Rin, Stephen!" He excitedly looked between the two, eyes practically shining.

Observation was all that Hye-Rin was doing. Not really speaking or anything, she looked at everybody within the group. If anybody was un-nerving to her, it was the kid with the kaomoji mask. She thought she had escaped those things. Following behind Shepard into the burger joint, a little squeak of surprise came out unwillingly as Shep took her hand. A light blush tinted her otherwise pale cheeks a soft peach color, but she followed his lead. Giving a grateful not before she slid into the booth, she inspected the boy that Shep seemed to eager to meet.

Giving his hand a squeeze as a friendly reminder that he still kept her hand in his, her eyes traveled over to the wall that he mentioned to. Ah, he had defeated the Croft challenge. A grin of pride crept up on her face whether she really liked it on not.

Still having kept quiet, once Shep finished his rounds and introduced her to his friend, whom was named Stephen, a polite smile came as she nodded. "Pleased to meet you." Her korean accent was most certainly shining through, although it was starting to mute itself hanging around the people she was. She really was just there to accompany Shepard, if anything.
