((To below: Thank you for your suggestion. I will consider it. And thank you to all my fans!!! You are the people who inspire me and keep me going))<p> Pelra was out of the hospital in a few days. She was given a small apartment overlooking the city, with caretakers to clean every day and give her shampoo, soap, a hair brush, a toothbush, and a wardrobe full of clothing. They cooked her food and talked to her occasionally. Pelra knew all of their names. In a few weeks she would become an IR, which stood for Initiate Rebel, and to pass the long, sunny days she and Qiutri would take walks through the Aquertova gardens, with their clear glass pathways that were raised two feet off the ground. They would walk to the tea shop and order jasmine tea, sipping the warm brew while watching the people pass and boats sail across the huge river. Then they would walk back. Pelra noticed that clothing was much less simple than in Sinukia. A mother with two small children walked past. She wore a strappy tank top with skinny jeans and killer heels. Her hair, dyed icy blue, was shaved down side of her head, revealing an intricate skull tattoo. Pelra shuddered. Her own mother would rather lie down on the floor and croak before donning a style like that. A teenage girl looking not much older than Pelra walked by. She had long, curly wild black hair tied in a high ponytail and hot pink liquid eyeliner. She wore a cropped top with booty shorts and stiletto boots. Pelra immediately averted her eyes. She wished she had the courage to dress like that. Even though she had every article of clothing she would ever need, she chose the most modest: a brown dress and brown leggings, with simple sandals. "Hey, you." It was the girl with the pink eyeliner. She wore dramatic mascara, too. "Are you going to be an IR?"<br> Pelra stared, taken aback, at the girl. "Y-yes..."<br> The girl shook her hand. Her palm was rough and her fingernails painted red and black. "I'm Katrina Dewquey. Nice to meet you." Her dark eyes shone warmly. "I'm an IR too. First year or second?" Pelra nervously looked at Katrina. "First."<br> Katrina beamed. "This is my second year! I'm seventeen. What's your name?"<br> "Pelra Tringey."<br> "Nice to meet you! Well, see ya, Tringey."<br> She gave Pelra a pat on the shoulder and hurried off, stilettos clicking. Pelra could see Katrina had a tattoo of a dragon wrapped around her arm. Then she smiled faintly. Now she had not only one friend in Aquertova, but two.
