Midnight simply watched as groups went up based on the chess piece they'd picked up...Wait! She realized in, slight, horror that it meant she'd be partnered with more than 1 person?! That wasn't fair! She was going to have enough to deal with Tehengu, but now they were going to force her to be a team with others for 4 years? She let out a huff, annoyed at how the system worked. What if she was grouped with someone who hated Faunus', then what? Could she ask for a swap?

That's when she heard her name, and 2 others she recognised. Slash and Tehengu, and she assumed Andrea was the girl who was with Slash. Could be worse Midnight thought to herself as she slowly walked on the stage

Tehengu remained quiet through the whole affair, watching as teams were assigned. He glanced back at Midnight a couple times, as she didn't seem to like the idea of partnering with him, let alone two others. Still, he would protect her if their team turned out to dislike faunus. Eventually, he heard his name called, and that of Slash and Midnight. So, they were paired with Slash and his partner? Well, the girl might be hard to get along with, but he was fine.

Tehengu walked towards the stage with Midnight, helping her on as he stood with Slash and Andrea.

Slash stood with his hands behind his back and feet apart, waiting for Professor Ozpin to speak.

"The four of you retrieved the black knight pieces. From this day forward you will work together as...Team Samaritan. Lead by...Slash Claw" Ozpin said.

Slash smiled as the he heard an applause from the audience, turning to look at his new teammates.

Andrea followed her team mates up onto the stage. She looked toward the other two people. Oh it was those two! Andrea was slightly relieved. At least these two weren't completely incompetent. then came the moment when they were to announce the team captain. Standing in attention, she waited for- " Lead by...Slash Claw " Andrea just sort of froze there for a second. Slash? Slash is my leader? Andrea turned her face toward Slash and gave him a combination look of Confusion and betrayal.

Midnight stood close to Tehengu, looking at the crowd. It wasn't that she was scared of crowds, its just that everyone's eyes felt like they were clued onto her which made her unnerved, knowing that so many people were watching her. She was surprised there was a team leader, and was sooo thankful it wasn't her, she'd be a useless leader because she wouldn't talk to them. She'd just go into her corner, get out her book and relax so that was all for null. She looked at Tehengu, looking for what kind of reaction he had, and almost trying to see if she could see any idea of what happened to his eye. She knew it wasn't nice to be curious, he would tell her when he wanted to, but with nothing else to do, she let her mind run a little wild with the possibilities.

"That is all for today. Your books and your uniforms will be found in your lockers. Rooms will be assigned to in the locker room." Goodwitch said as everyone started to leave the hall. Slash saw a weird look on Andreas face, turning his smile into a frown. "What's wrong?" he asked.

Tehengu simply remained in the same position throughout the announcement. Slash was to lead them... Well, he didn't really mind that. He remained stoic until the crowd dispersed and left the four of them in the room. He turned towards Midnight, raising an eyebrow as if questioning why she had been staring.

Midnight noticed Tehengu raise his eyebrow, realizing that she'd been caught staring at him. She'd been completely caught in her owm mind with the possible explainations of what had happened to his eye that she hadn't noticed him notice her. She felt a burning in her cheeks as she tried to think of an excuse "...." she had opened her mouth, before realizing she had nothing that could work and opted to silence. She glanced down at the ground, before catching a look at Tehengu.

"Let's head to the dinning hall for lunch! We'd probably have a lot of free time to unpack later" Slash said as he walked off the stage and headed for the dinning hall.

Tehengu simply looked away after Midnight did, nodding at Slash's suggestion to get some lunch. He followed his friend back into the dining hall, actually wanting some food this time.

"Well would you look at that! What a feast!" Slash said, mouth watering at he witch of so much food. He sat down at the table they were at before and started taking baked salmon and fried halibut onto his empty plate.

Looking Slash right in the eyes, Andrea tried speaking. " Uh... " Keeping the odd look on her face, she followed her teammates toward the dinning hall. Sitting at the table, Andrea removed the ham sandwiches she had kept from earlier and began eating those. A little while after the whole situation, Andrea asked in a rather shocked tone. " Slash is the leader? "

Slash looked in Andrea's direction. She doesn't seem happy about him being the leader.

"If Professor Ozpin says I can be a leader, then I won't question it. Only time will tell if he's made a mistake, but I believe in him and myself" Slash said, cutting his baked salmon with his knife.

"Why? Did you think I'm not fit to be the leader?" Slash asked, putting his fork and knife in the middle of his plate when he was finished.

Andrea turned to face Slash. He was right. It was Ozpins Decision, and having that much experience, he must have had a reason to make it. that being said, Andrea couldn't just admit that Slash of all people was Right about something. So instead Andrea looked at Slash with a seriously unamused look, as she reached her hand toward his face " Boop " Looking back toward the food table, Andrea reached over grabbing various degrees of Spicy foods to devour.

Tehengu ate at the table in silence, mostly eating various meats, though there were some vegetables in there as well. He gave Andrea a strange look at her reaction to Slash's words, but said nothing about it. He had no problem with Slash being the leader of the team, and he deferred to the headmaster's experience on the matter. He knew what he was doing.

Slash just sat there, to shocked to move or say anything. If someone were to poke him, he'd fall onto the floor like a statue being taken down. Did Andrea just...touch his nose? His ears kept twitching as he kept replaying what just happened in his mind. Slash shook his head and breathed calmly, ignoring the beating of his heard. "Once we have finished, I think it will be best if we go to the locker room and take our uniforms and luggage. We will also need to get our dorm" he said as if nothing had happened. He can blush and fantasize all he wants in his dreams, right now he needs to take on the title as leader and not let his emotions get in the way. As for Andrea, Slash could already tell she was doing..."something furtive" he mumbled, scratching his head.

Toward the end of her meal, Andrea began huffing and lightly fanning her face " Ooff. Foods got some kick. I like it! " Finishing off her meal, Andrea waited for her partners to finish eating and meanwhile grabbed a few hot peppers for the road. One never knows when they might start craving spicy food. While lining her pockets, Andrea heard Slash say something rather odd. " Something Furtive " Something furtive? What would he have to be secretive about? " Are you hiding something? " She said as she grabbed herself a bottle of water.

"Hm? Oh, it's nothing" Slash replied. When will he learn not to let his thoughts slip out of his mouth?

Slash looked at Andrea as she went to get water. She's actually pretty when she's not grumpy. She also seems to be a fan of spicy food, which is quite rare among girls. Slash can handle spicy food, but too much leaves him with burning lips.

A drop of sweat slid down Slash's head as he looked at her with an unamused look on his face. "Do you even know the meaning of that word?" Slash said with a smile growing on his face.

" Something along the lines of being suspicious-ey? Or secret-ey? " Andrea reached into a non-pepper stuffed pocket and pulled out her scroll. Looking up the word on the scroll, Andrea flashed it toward Slash. " Yeah, you see? You're being Furtive. "

Slash shrugged and adjusted the bandages around his fingers. "I have nothing to hide" he said, looking at her in the eyes. What does he have to hide anyways?

Midnight had followed her 'team' out of the hall silently, she wasn't that hungry but should probably stay with her team. She wasn't a fan of the idea still, but she was stuck with them one way or another so she'd jus have to deal with it and move on. Joining them at the table, she'd oped to just read her book so honestly, it wasn't that big of a loss for her. She listened in to bits and pieces of the conversation, but she didn't deam much of it important so she went back to her book. Hearing Andrea and Slash argue, she glanced over at them from her books, rolled her eyes, then went back to her book. She threw a glance at Tehengu "..You'd assume from the way they're bickering, they're married or something.." she said quietly to him
