After talking to Mifune, Kiran decided that she would arm herself before going to The Drink so she found a pawn shop, Mega Pawn, near Under the Hill. She asked if they had brass knuckles and the owner said that they had rings and paperweights, brass knuckles were illegal. When she looked at the paperweights, they were brass knuckles. Kiran asked if she could try them out and she evaluated each piece until she found one that she really liked. She tried to flirt with the pawn-man to get the prices to lower, he stood firm at 200 dollars but he said that they glowed in moonlight.
Kiran paid for the knuckles and then looked around and saw a leather jacket that she really liked. When she tried it on, it didn't fit right because it was made for a man and she had boobs. She asked the owner if he would hold this for a day for her because she might be able to find someone to make alterations to it. He told her there was a small fee and she paid it then left. When Kiran got back to school she went back to her room where she saw Matt sitting in front of her board, and she smelled gasoline. She asked him what was wrong and Matt told her that she was starting to get a little in over her head and that he needed to know if she was okay, and what she was planning. Kiran told him that she was okay, but on the threat of him burning her work, she started to confess everything that was going on. When the issue was dealt with she went back to work on the board.
Sarah thought it would be a good idea to track Matt to see who his boyfriend was, and so she followed him through the school, down to the city and she lost sight of him at a landfill. She couldn't find him after that and when she tried to retrace her steps, she ended up at the docks and near the bar, The Drink. She saw Sayna, whom she turned into a human for and asked him what was going on. Sayna told her to leave and she asked why and the Russian man told her things might get a little hectic. After that he pulled guns out of his car and started to walk towards the bar. Sarah tried to creep up on the man with guns, and he ended up shooting her once. At the end of the night she made it to Under the Hill where Caska and Florance were having a date.
When Caska saw that she had a gunshot wound, he went and grabbed the first aid kit. He asked her if she could handle the pain or did he have to knock her out first, jokingly she said knock her out but before she could take it back, she was unconscious. She woke up the next morning in her room, all better.

The next morning, Kiran went to the dean's office to see if she could get a carry permit for her brass knuckles, because the school allowed weapons but they had to be concealed to do so. She went to the receptionist and asked for permission as she turned in the paperwork that the dean asked for when she came out as Kiran. The receptionist asked her why she wanted to have the knuckles and she told her self defense. When the receptionist looked at the brass knuckles she did a spell to identify it and told Kiran only to use it when she wanted to kill someone. Before Kiran could ask more questions, the next person was called into the room and she was kicked out.
The two girls made it to breakfast and Kiran asked if anyone knew how to alter a leather jacket and Jesse said he did, and Kiran asked him if he would. He told her to bring the jacket, give him her measurements and pay for the leather and he would, she agreed to bring it to him that night. Jesse told Kiran that she should work on her whispering and then Kiran went to the teacher's lounge and asked for Mr. Lassiter's office hours. It had come to her mind the night before that this guy looked almost identical to the description of Lawrence that Mifune gave her so she was going to go see if she could snoop out information from him.
Luckily for her, Mr. Lassiter's office hours were during breakfast and so she went to visit him. Apparently he taught advanced evocation for the night class. She tried to probe him with basic questions to see if she could gain some information then she stated that she wanted to become part of his night class. She felt that in becoming a diplomat that she would have to work with all sorts of people and she had also been wanting to take an advanced evocation class. Mr. Lassiter told Kiran that in order to do that she would have to get permission from Luccio because he wanted to make sure that she wouldn't die in the process of the class and Kiran told him that she would get a note from her.
That day was the school's club festival and second period was cancelled for that day so people could have a long list of things to do. So after she was done eating she explored the booths of the festival for a bit. As people were setting up, Kiran asked if they needed help and she aided those whom did. Then she looked into the chess club, thinking of her friend in the Fourth Way Station, she looked at the craft club, because that was an area that she was skilled in, and she looked into the student council. She gathered her information and then started to head to Intermediate Evocation early.
Kiran texted Sarah before Intermediate Evocation that she please not go to the next class. She got no reply. In Intermediate Evocation, Kiran asked Luccio about joining the night evocation class. After a small discussion Luccio agreed to it and told her that she would write a note. Kiran practiced magics while Sarah was in P.E. doing hurdles. Kiran waited outside of Magical History class to make sure that Sarah wasn't going to go in, and she thought she was good until she went into the classroom and Sarah was sitting at her desk. Kiran yelled at Sarah saying that it was her choice and that didn't break the promise on her part.
Sarah said she had to attend to an emergency before class started and when she had permission to go, she walked out of the door and into the centaur, Lord Thrum. They met for a moment then the two parted and Sarah left and Lord Thrum went in. Sarah returned to class later and Lord Thrum gave his history lesson. After class, Kiran asked Lord Thrum if there would be any trouble caused if a Red Court Vampire reappeared, and he told her that it wouldn't be a problem for her on their end, but it might be an issue for the White Council. After that, Kiran left and glared at Sarah in the process.
Kiran didn't go to dinner, rather she went down to the city got her leather jacket and brought it to Jesse's room. After that she went to her room, spiffed up the circle and summoned Puck. She told him that his daughter wasn't listening to her and that it was causing a lot more problems than it needed to have. She asked Puck if he could punch Sarah, and he warned that she might punch back. Puck said that there was one major thing that she did wrong and that was Kiran told Sarah not to go to class, he said that bribing or making deals would work a lot better. So Kiran asked if she could get in contact with Conor and Puck said he didn't have her number so when she handed her number to him, she broke the circle and Puck put her table on her chairs to teach her a lesson for the future, don't break circles. Then Puck said that he had some things to do and left.
After Puck left, Kiran gathered some supplies and casted a spell on her knuckles that their power would not activate until the given word was spoken. It took her a while to set it up and then she was able to do that. She then proceeded to stay up working on her detective's board.
Sarah waited until Lord Throm went to the lunchroom and she took her food and stood by him, asking him questions about Fae in general and then she accidently let it slip that she wasn't apart of a court and then she left to explore the school a little bit.
After exploring for a bit, Sarah tripped and when she looked down, Puck had tied her shoelaces together. Puck told Sarah that Kiran had summoned him and that she was somewhat concerned. He told her that he talked with Lord Thrum and that she should consider making wiser choices. Then he told her that he needed to get in contact with Conor and left.
That night Kiran decided to go to The Drink to see if she could gather information on Lawrence. When she arrived she asked if the bartender looked at licenses and he said he looked at them, so Kiran showed her outdated one and he told her that she needed to get the information updated and gave her a drink. She looked around, and there was one guy that was staring at her, one red-head, and a few other guys who were looking at her. A guy came up and flirted with her a little bit, bought her a drink, and asked what she liked, and she said red-heads, so he left.
There was a biker that came in soon after that she somewhat recognized but was unsure of whom it was. She continued to look around and saw a woman walk in the bar and sit with the redhead. Hoping that the person was Lawrence, she asked if the guy was single and the bartender said no, and she acted disappointed. Then she went over to the guy who was giving her the creeps, and started to talk to him. She found out that his name was Smith or Mr. Johnson, and she knew that was codeword for a hired killer. She asked if he had any information that she could have and he said it came at a cost but it depended on what she wanted to know. She asked for a man that described Lawrence and he told her that, Kevin, the bartender would know more than he did.
When she asked the bartender for such information, he said that was something that he'd share after closing time. Then the woman left, that was with the redhead and Kiran went to him. She tried to ask him a couple of questions, and he asked for what reason did she want to know and she told him curiosity, so he told her no, then she told him revenge, and he asked her if they knew what they said about revenge, and she said that it is best served cold and he said no, that you have to dig two graves. She asked if there were people that he'd give the world for and the man said yes, and then she asked him if he'd get revenge for them, he said no, he would go kill a God, then he left.
Upon closing time she waited an hour to get the information and then she found that he only gave information when it came to gold and jewels, she asked about how much that would cost and he told her to start with the price of a wedding ring.

Kiran went to breakfast, and talked with the normal crowd, then left for the dojo to train with Riki Maru. Sarah ate by herself and was avoiding others. Sarah decided to go to the boiler room during her open period and Iliana had come to paint a picture and said goodbye to Sarah, saying that she'd see her in Mundane Studies. Kiran didn't really eat at lunch and Sarah tried to sit by herself and then Riki Maru tried to comfort her by sitting close. Sarah noticed that Iliana had painted a picture of her and asked if she did that often without people's permission. Iliana asked if she had to pay Sarah for being in the picture and Sarah told her no, that she liked it, then went towards second period.
The two girls didn't talk to each other but Sarah was wanting to get the work done in Mundane Studies because Mr. Misomoto threatened her if she wanted him to suggest her being held back a year. After that class, Sarah spent the rest of the day in the boiler room and met some other kids that came there around third and fourth period. One of them being a girl named Malifena, who looked like a guy.
Conor texted Kiran, asking her what she needed from him. Kiran replied that she needed to get some help with Sarah and a way to get through to her was with him. She said she'd get permission for him to come and talk to her and they would meet Thursday morning at sun-up. That night Kiran went into the city, bought a grand worth of jewels and gold and then went to meet Conor in the morning.
Thursday, August 31th, 3080
Kiran met up with Conor and talked to him about Sarah, and then she stopped by and she got mad at the two and the two didn't understand. So Conor went after Sarah and asked her if she was hungry for breakfast and she said yes, the two went to Red Lobster, and then talked some.
Later on Sarah asked Kiran why she had gotten Conor to come and Kiran told her that she'd probably act sensible when she had something to care for.
At the end of the day Kiran opened the door to her apartment a woman was standing there. She told Kiran that they needed to talk. Enough people had expressed concern and now she was looking into it. She told Kiran that she needed some help because at some point her search would consume her and no one knew what the breaking point would be and who would be hurt by it. Kiran denied that she had a problem and so the councilor asked then, if she wanted to talk about the board or her brother. Magical energy was released from her and she hexed every electronic device near her. At that point she decided to talk about the board. The councilor asked if she had gotten help with her board and Kiran told her yes, then Kiran remembered the Fae that were supposed to give her information for the pizza. So she ran to the dojo, the councilor following, and she asked them to give her the information. They ratted her out that she had gotten shiny stuff for information, but they gave her a map, microfilm, and told her that the person was called Huck or Huckleberry and that he worked swing shifts. Kiran tried to race the councilor to her room to lock her out but the woman beat her there and asked some more questions before leaving.
Friday, September 1st, 3080
The girls rekindled their odd friendship. Kiran got her altered leather jacket from Jesse at breakfast and school went normal. After classes there was a field trip to Under the Hill. Everyone from Mundane Studies was there, that meant the night class too. Kiran was going to leave and go to the arcade because she didn't have any money, but Jesse told her that he'd pay for her, then Iliana said she'd pay for everyone. Kiran was starting to fall asleep so she asked Harry if he had something to keep her up, and he offered Ranger's Pudding and she accepted it. Kiran was so hyper after that, she was shaking, and glaring at Nelfelhiem.
Kiran talked to Mifune about her small update on the case and then texted Shames and told him that she was at Under the Hill if he wanted to come join and he told her that he'd be there in a few. Sarah decided to call Conor to see if he wanted to join them, and Conor said he was on his way. The girls ended up going on dates.
When their date was done, Kiran told Shames that she was going to do something stupid and he told her that he'd go with her. She told him that she was going to go to The Drink and get some information, so he told her that they needed to stop by his place so he could change and then they could go. Kiran looked around his apartment while he changed and when he came out, he was the guy he could almost identify at The Drink the other night.
The two went to the drink and Kiran paid for more information then the two separated and Kiran went back to the school. When Kiran got back Sarah was outside her door drinking coffee and told Kiran that there was a woman in her apartment, and Kiran didn't want to go in, so they went to Sarah's apartment. There was a note for Sarah from Rufus saying that he went to Kiran's apartment and so Kiran and Sarah finally went to her apartment.
When they walked in, Kiran couldn't see her board and she lost her shit. She started to scream at everyone. She wanted to know where her board was. In the process, the councilor was recording this on video and so Kiran attacked her electronics with electricity. When she was told by the group that her board hadn't moved she used her Sight and the illusion had broke. She had a vision, then she fell to the floor trying to recover. The first thing Kiran did was try to go to her room, but Matt told her that he wouldn't let her and that she needed to talk to the people. She went and got candy and sat on the farthest side of the couch and they moved closer to her. After a bit of talking the councilor and Rufus left, Jesus showed up, and then Sarah turned into a kitten trying to cheer Kiran up. Kiran grabbed Sarah and walked outside and sat and pet her the rest of the night.

That morning, Kiran sent Sarah to go get changed, Kiran bathed and tried to work on her board a little bit before Sarah started to bang on the door half asleep. The two went to the arcade and when they arrived, Sarah saw John, she went to thump him on the head, and he cut her deeply with his dagger. Fix broke up the fight and Kiran took Sarah to the back and bandaged her up. Fix took over that and told her to dump the boy in the river, she asked if he was dead and Fix told her no, that he needed some oxygen and he'd be fine. Kiran took him down the street and put a spell on him that gave him air through his lungs, and after dodging an attack, she left for the Arcade.
With how Sarah was acting, Kiran told Fix that she'd take over the counter, and he agreed. Sarah was changed to cleaning duties, and Karin put on a facade that everything was alright. Fix brought food to them, and Kiran said she was fine but Fix demanded that she eat. Malfina came into the arcade and talked to Sarah for a minute, and after she left, Sarah was in tear in a corner and Kiran came to console her. Fix told the girls that they should go home and go to sleep. Kiran was locked into a promise to try and they left.
They started to walk away then Sarah and Kiran were separated. Sarah was standing in front of Malfina, and she was telling her that it was so sad that none of her friends were there, it was like they were abandoning her. Sarah was compelled to grab a shard of glass and finish what John had started by Sayna stopped her by throwing a dagger in her hand and attacking Malfina. It was then that Kiran was able to find Sarah and she tried to make sure everything was okay. When Malfina was dead, Sayna said he hated house Skavis vampires, which made sense because she was feeding off of despair. He introduced himself as Knight of the Cross, Sword of Hope.
