Jesse rises and prepares herself for her meetings. Though she takes great care to look her best she still shrugs when she looks in the mirror, never satisfied with the reflection she sees. After her brief preparation, she leaves some food and water for the cats and heads to the Regent's office.

You find Nichola sat outside again and she greets you with a smile.
"Ms Rook is expecting you, go right on it."
As you pass close by her you catch her urgent whisper to you... "be honest..."

Her eyes widen in alarm. What would she have to be dishonest about? Her mind races as she nods nervously. "Uh...sure. Thank you." She looks at the Regent's door before steeling herself and opening the door. She steps through and approaches the Regent's desk, bowing. "Salve Sodale Regent." she says reverently and waits to be adressed before rising.

The Regent looks up as you enter. Her appearance has changed not one iota since you left the room, in fact she gives the impression that she may not have in fact moved at all since you were last here.
"Salve Sodale.
"I hope you have made good use of your time since our last meeting?"

"I have Regent, though there is always more that can be done. I have begun studying a new ritual, have continued my latin study, and have made attempts to familiarize myself with the chantry and the city."

The Regent rewards your statement with a small tight smile.
"That is excellent Apprentice. It seems you will not require direction after all."
You gather the very distinct impression that 'direction' whilst productive might not be a particularly enjoyable thing...

"Aegis..."
The shimmering figure of the previous night appears immediately at the Regent's call.
"This Apprentice is to be granted 6th Circle privilages for purposes of historical research."



Aegis makes a formal bow to the Regent. "As you wish M'am."

She barely has time to register that she seems to have somehow avoided trouble before her jaw drops. ~6th circle? Oh the books..~ she could weep with joy at the prospect but quickly realizes she must pull herself together and does so. She executes another bow, respectfully conveying her thanks to the Regent without speaking out of turn.

Returning her gaze to you she adds...
"Do not attempt to abuse the privilage Apprentice. You will receive no other caution in this."
She takes up her pen, or more acurately stylus. You could imagine her to have prefered a quill but then you notice that the stylus shares the same creamy, organic, finish as some of the blades in her collection.
The paper or parchment... no the vellum... that she draws makes small scratching noises as, dipping the stylus in a small pot of red/brown ink, she begins to write upon it.
What follows is a slugh of questions regarding your early history as a Tremere, dates, lessons and other seemingly inconsiquential details of your early Apprentice years.

"Of course Regent, I will not disappoint you." she answers and continues on to answer the questions as best she can.

She continues to write almost constantly, pausing only to dip the stylus in the inkwell.
At one point she does give you a somewhat interested or possibly perplexed look as you describe something mundane for her in perfect detail.
After what seems like an eternity she abruptly sets the stylus down.
"I think that will suffice for one evening. You may take your leave."

"Vale Sodale Regent" she says with another bow and leaves the office as instructed. After closing the door behind her and calming herself she looks around for the Secundus or his office.

"Vale Sodale."
The Regent gives you a slight nod as she returns your farewell.

In your previous exploration of the Chantry you never saw anything that looked like an office for the Secundus, unless it was hidden away in the Vaults...
There were a number of smaller semi-private rooms among the common areas however.

Nichola is still seated outside and smiles at you in a friendly fashion as you emerge.

She approaches her a little awkwardly. "Excuse me Miss...Nichola...The Secundus wanted to meet with me after I was done with the Regent. Would you know where he is?" she asks with an appologetic tone.

She gives you an appologetic smile.
"Well if he isn't here to collect you then I'm really not sure."
Looking thoughtful a moment she adds...
"Is he expecting you? If you have an appointment then Aegis should be able to tell you where to find him.
"Aegis knows everything like that, there are just a lot of rules on what he is allowed to tell and to whom."

She smiles brightly.

"Wait...I remember now. He told me to meet him in the common rooms." she says in a tone berating herself as she looks around to orient herself. "Thank you very much and I'm sorry to have bothered you." she says and scurries off to the common rooms.

Nichola waves you off with a smile.




You enter the common rooms and find the Secundus seated in one of the more comfortable chairs, a laptop balanced on his knee.
"Salve Sodale." he says with an amused smile.
"Pull up a chair Apprentice Fauche."

"Salve Sodale Secundus" she says with a bow not quite as deep as she gives the Regent and takes a seat. She fidgets a bit with her skirt to straighten it, trying to distract herself from her complete incompetence in social settings. "You wanted to meet with me?" she asks, curious what this is about.

"Yes I did."
He passes you the laptop with a smile.
"You appear to have a talent, I intend to establish just how much.
"Solve the problem... and you are being timed."

~Oh God a test?~ she thinks to herself as she takes the laptop and her anxiety level rises. With a swallow she adjusts the laptop on her lap and fidgets with her hair, brushing it behind her ear and pushing her glasses up the bridge of her nose as she looks at trhe problem. She says a silent prayer not to completely humiliate herself and dives in.

The problem involves breaking security protocols and it doesn't actualy seem that bad... right up until you spot the trap at the end.
You realise this test has more than one stage and you just stop yourself triggering the start of stage two prematurely.
Carefully you complete the first task before triggering the inevitable stage two, wary now for more tricks.

She blows a strand of hair out of her face and puts her focus onto the computer, forgetting all else for the moment.

If you hadn't caught that first trap you are sure that this would have overwhelmed you but you franticly type and hold your own.
The second stage ends without a cascade trap but then something strange starts to happen...

Her brow furrows and her fingers fly across the keyboard.

The problem itself seemed simple but whenever you typed something it seemed to scramble and you had just about figured out what was happening, though the how totaly escapes you, when the laptop crashes, a whisp of smoke emerging from the hard drive vent.

The Secundus raises an eyebrow at you, still smiling pleasantly.
"What happened Apprentice Fauche?" he asks you mildly.

Her hand goes to her mouth. "Oh goodness! I'm so sorry Secundus. I...I'm not sure what happened. I guess I...lost track of what I was doing." ~I'm so embarassed~
