    Armis

    The metalic teen would walk through the fields, humming as he did. His life at the academy had been rather uneventful so far, not much had happened, his siblings avoided him but that was to be expected, so he went about his days calmly, venting his violent urges when he could.

    Today he was out for a walk, munching on some bolts and tinfoil as he went. It seemed a nice day, so the young demon was wandering about, he didn't have friends really, a decent number of students were put off by who his mother was.

    As he walked he'd notice something mildly unusual, a flower, a rather large one. Looking at it curiously he'd approach it. It was close to the school so he deemed it a non threat, after all the school wouldn't allow a dangerous plant to grow so close to the school.

    Pallavi should really stop making a habit of sleeping on the school grounds for every time she wanted a quick nap her roots would turn up the finely curated landscaping as her roots tilled up the soil with their burrowing. Even if the school didn't really mind her sleeping on the lawn, she imagined it to be bothersome for the school staff to have to constantly patch up grass. That and there was always someone one always approach and checking her out. She can't blame them for their curiosity, many folk see her as peculiar oddity but nothing more instead of the terrible monster she always thought herself to be. Even in dreaming, she could still sense their curious minds making there approach.

    [Look upon me all you want stranger but please, refrain from touching. I understand that you must be curious of the large flower that is me but... I am sort of resting here... sorry if I am disrupting you.] telepathically communicated Pallavi to Armis, hoping that he understood the message... and hopefully not too freaked out about a voice suddenly contacting him inside his head.

    Armis

    Armis would tilt his head as the pleasant voice flowed into his mind, it was unexpected but quite nice actually. "No you're not disrupting me at all miss," he'd give the flower a bow, a greeting he'd picked up while observing the other residents of the island, he found it mote elegant than shaking hands.

    "If anything I was likely disturbing you, for that I apologize," he of course had no way of knowing that the flower was a person, but he did at times let his curiosity get the better on him, "but yes, I am curious."

    He'd look the flower up and down, before realizing that might be rude and focused his sight on her center for now. "I'm Armis, it's a pleasure to meet you miss."

    [Oh no! You don't have to apologize for anything. If anything I should be the one apologizing to you... you were but minding your own business until I spoke up and interrupted you. Sorry about that... I should give you a proper introduction instead of surprising you like that.]

    As the telepathic voice fades away, a darken skin humanoid form emerges from the flower's center like a Venus coming out of sea foam. As she emerges, the syrupy gold that clings to her skin and clothe drips off and falls into the pool of nectar at the flowers center. As she removes what remainder still on her, she looks to Armis with one eye a bright as silver while the other in hue like burning embers. Her face now transfixed unto his, she smiles to Armis. As her hands down by her thighs, she blinks. As her eyes reopen, one is as black as coal while the other green like a sparkling emerald.

    "My name is Pallavi... a pleasure to meet you as well Armis." introduced Pallavi as she speaks in her true voice, lowing her head to a slight bow of respect to him.

    Armis

    The demonic golem would blink in surprise when the young woman emerged from the flower. He wasn't sure what to expect from a telepathic flower, but this was certainly unexpected to him, his cheeks flushing slightly.

    He'd give another bow, "it's a pleasure to meet you," he'd give a calm smile, "and I have to say, you're as lovely as your name." He'd clear his throat, standing straight, making sure he looked decently presentable.

    "Are you new to the academy?" he'd ask curiously, the school was large but he believed he'd have noticed her before if she'd been a student long.

    Pallavi was blinked a few times, still registering the flattery Armis bestowed upon her. It puzzled her how anyone would see her being pretty but... there it was again. If people understood her true nature, her true danger... would they still see her as this delicate flower?

    "O-oh... ummm... thanks. You look... nice yourself." said Pallavi, trying to return the compliment. When it came to answering his question about her status at the academy... she frowned slightly and too a time to ponder before giving him a response.

    "Uhh... yes... and no? I... used to be a student long ago but now that I am back... so much has changed that... I might as well be a new student."

    Armis

    "Welcome back then, miss Pallavi," he'd give her a smile, "I hope you've enjoyed your time back, the school seems a good place, a good home." He hadn't made many connections, few friends, some students avoided him because of who his mother was.

    "May I ask what grade you're in?" he'd ask, she looked roughly his age, "perhaps we have classes together or at least will see each other." She seemed pleasant, kind, as well as unique, a literal living flower.

    "Oh...I have something..," from his pocket he'd produce a piece of simple metal, "I can mold metal into shapes...allow me to make you something." The metal would shift and bend into his hands, finally taking the form of a near perfect flower, "here, a welcome back gift I suppose," he'd step closer, offering her the small gift.

    "Technically I am in high school but... it doesn't really feel like it. In these... sort of special remedial classes. In fact, most of the time I am not in my classes... I usually watch the lectures through a student assistant that the academy sends in my stead through my telepathy. Most of my classmates have never really seen me... sorry if it all sounds confusing." spoke Pallavi, briefly reflecting on the logistical difficulties involved when it came to her education.

    As Armis created his metal masterpiece, Pallavi waited patiently to let him do his work. She marveled at the ways he worked the metal as though it was clay, sculpting it until atlas he created the form of a delicate flower.

    "Oh... thanks... I don't really think I deserve this kind gesture but..." Pallavi pauses, then forces a smile as she takes the flower, rubbing the stem between her fingers as she holds it close to her chest "... its nice flower."

    Armis

    "High School, as am I," he'd hum a little in thought, "no apology needed, life can be confusing, that said I understood well enough." The young demon would smile as she accepted the small gift, I liked making things but had few people to gift them to.

    He'd tilt his head, thinking quietly for a moment, he was a thoughtful and contemplative young man. "Would you like to be friends?" he'd ask, thinking the conversation they'd been having was a fine start to a friendship.

    "I can't promise that my company will be exciting," he'd chuckle a little, "but I'm always about if you wish for someone to talk to, or spend time with." She seemed kind, slightly timid perhaps but there was nothing wrong with that.

    "F-friends?" blurted out Pallavi, caught off guard by the boy wanting to be her friend. The two only just met... but then that is a how a lot of friendships first start off now that she thought about. Especially her more recent friends like Elisa, Dalia, or Lucan.

    "Sure... we can be friends. I don't see why not. Its okey if your not going to do much exciting stuff. For meself, I just like talking and learning so... we can do just that. Though... as your friend... do you think you can tell me a bit about yourself?"
