"Correct. What's the book for?"

[Continued]

"Information" Jacen answered, writing a few notes into his book, "it helps me remember people I've met, but I also use it to keep notes on people I think are a threat or may be a threat to me or anyone connected to me in the future. So far, I haven't had to use the information in here" he explained, snapping the book shut and securing it with a red rubber band

"Well, I can assure you I'm no threat," she said, laughing at the thought. "Unless it's in test scores. I admit, I work hard to get good marks, so there I might be a threat."

Jacen nodded, "I heard that about you. I've also heard about your bloodlines and your relationship with your teammate"

"What, that I'm Muggle-born? That's no secret. Nor is the fact that Reg and I have been a couple for almost a year." She shrugged. "Your teammate is trying to make trouble, but it's not going to work. All we want is a fair competition."

"And I can respect that, but given the situation, wouldn't you be willing to do whatever it takes to ensure Mr Prices safety?" Jacen asked "intentions are all well and good, but the Tournament isn't that easy. It's designed to push you to your limits and than keep going. What would you do if you had to make a choice between your teammates? What if you had to kill or torture one to save the other? Would you do something unspeakable to save the one you love?" He asked, any sign of his previous nervousness covered by a darker expression

"Apparently you would," Jen countered. "Do you share Miss Penny's win at all coasts philosophy? Or is it a trait common among you Americans?" The thought made her look at Jacen with new eyes. He was darker and more deceptive than she thought

Jacen smiled, "no miss Collins, I don't share Lindsey's philosophy, but I would be willing to do whatever it takes to protect my friends" he said, looking her directly in the eyes, "and I believe you would be willing to go just as far, but I hope you never have to face that choice"

"So do I," Jen replied.

Reginald rushed down the hall in his fancy suit. He seemed out a breath as he combed his hair back with his hands and let out a sigh of relief seeing Jennifer in all her magnificence. He couldn't help but smile as he walked over to her slowly and stopped, seeing Jacen there.

The look on his face went from a smile and an angry look as he stood there for a moment and watched them interact a bit. The nerve of the kid. He thought to himself as he narrowed his eyes and started to look the boy over. Moving in on my girl while my back was turned? I should pummel him to the ground if Jen wasn't standing right bloody there. He looked over at his reflection and double checked his appeared before walking over there toward them.

Seeing Reg walk over, Jacen turned to Jen, "at any rate Ms Collins, I believe your escort wishes to go in" he said, looking over at Reg for a second, "so, I shall bid you farewell" he said with a bow before turning and walking off up the stairs leading away from the great hall

Corban arrived late, sneaking in unnoticed an took a seat at a table in the back and watched the party started up. Moving too the back he gave a sigh, "If this was back in the states, I'd have two or three dates."

Reg watched as Jacen walked away as he approached and stood there next to Jennifer. He kept his eyes on him and then looked over to Jennifer, immediately giving her a quick smile. "What was that about? Hope I didn't interrupt anything important. And if he was hitting on you, I am glad I interrupted." He let out a quick laughed and looked at her up and down, taking her hand in his. "You look amazing. I have half a mind to sneak off with you and keep you all to myself just to avoid seeing every boy in here looking at you and fantasizing about you all night. I might get angry and do something I would regret."

"Ha! You're the only one in the entire school who'd give me a second glance," she said, happy to have him beside her. "Jacen and I were chatting while we both waited for our dates." She kissed him on the cheek and whispered. "We have to be here for a little while. Then we can slip away to somewhere quiet."

"Don't put yourself down so much." Reg smiled and he kissed her back and held her close. "I tell you everyday you're beautiful and, if I say it, you know it's true." He put his arm around her and brought her close as he looked back to the doors of the Great Hall. "Yeah, let's not hang around here too long. I need to talk to you about something. Why I haven't been around so much. I want you to know before you start hearing things. Okay." He looked over to her, giving her a serious look before a smile grew on it slowly. "It's nothing bad. I just figured, after this first challenge, I decided I finally needed to let you in on what's been going on before it gets out of hand."

That didn't sound good. "Out of hand?" Coming from Reg, that worried her. "Okay, thirty minutes, tops." The hard part would be pretending she wasn't worried.

"Come on. Let's go make their heads spin. This is the first dance we are actually walking in here as an actual couple and I plan to make the most of it." Reg whispered and then leaned down and kissed her lips gently and passionately. As he broke the kiss and leaned back he smiled again and spoke softly to her. "Thirty Minutes then to our usual private spot. Okay?"
