You decide that things will be okay if you go - so you offer no complaints as Annabel puts on her backpack and hauls you out, beginning the path to school. Along the way you find yourself watching the things around you through Annabel's eyes; it seems like you're in a slice of typical suburbia, and as Annabel walks you notice that several other people are walking around as well. There's a very large city clearly visible in the distance, and every few minutes annabel hears jets, helicopters, and various other airbourne vehicle flying around. Eventually you make it school, where Annabel shoves you in a corner right by several animals. Interestingly, you're not the only 'plant' there, though the animals most certainly outnumber the plants. There are quite a few interesting pets though. Turtles, a pigeon, lizards, dogs, cats, a rat, and - if you're not mistaken - what you believe to be a pair of Goliath Birdeaters. You recognize them from a very informative documentary you 'saw' the other day. Unfortunately, the spiders are locked up pretty tightly. The lock is too far for you to reach without flat-out leaving your pot, the spiders don't have fingers to open it with... There does happen to be a child nearby; you scan his mind quickly and discover that he's a troublemaker. In fact, he plans on doing something to Annabel in just a few moments. Well, can't have that now can you? You'll just shove in this new plan, give a couple reasons for it, and... Wallah! The brat lets out your new Goliaths thinking it would be blamed on Annabel for nebulous reasons. Instead the spiders quickly run out the window, following your instructions to hide out in the garden of your home. Not only will you be able to breed a new generation of the bird-hunters, but you'll have one readily accessable for consumption. Letting out the best evil cackle that an immobile plant without a mouth or lungs you can, you continue patiently waiting, in the meantime experimenting with your psychic abilities on the animals around you. Dogs, cats, lizards... you manage to give most of them directives to wander aimlessly around your area as soon as they can, so you should have a good source once they've escaped their masters. And finally, it comes for the actual Show and Tell. Some boy named Johnathan is pissed off that his spiders are gone and the boy you tricked into releasing them in the first place gets into a fight with him, so they end up escorted outside. Other than that, the rest of the children are reletively docile, giving basic summaries that you find somewhat boring. You find it much more interesting to dig through the teachers head for lesson plans, information on basics taught in school, ect ect.... It isn't as easy as you'd like, but you do increase your understanding of math andthe english language by a fair margin. Finally, comes your turn. "This is my plant, Flower! Flower, say hi to the people!" You fail to respond. Or more like, you refuse to respond. No way in hell are you going to out yourself like that. However, you do allow your flowers to expand slightly and turn a bit brighter. There, a simple response that could be attributed to anything. Annabel describes you quite well; you like learning, you like animals, and your her best friend. She also mentions your rapid growth, citing it as being because "he's such an awesome plant!" And there. Class done, toodaloo, you don't have to be afraid of people trying to rip you apart or sending children to the hospital or any number of disasterous scenarios anymore. But before you leave, you notice that you're in close proximity to quite a few of the people who have been 'unpleasant' to your human. [ ] Try to make them ignore Annabel. [ ] Try to make them focus on someone else. [ ] Try to make them like Annabel. [ ] Actively threaten them. (specify how) [ ] Other? Whatever you do(or don't) to the the bullies and detractors, soon the two of you are back at home. Unfortunately, by now you understand that the Goliaths are going to need some active help to survive in a place like this, and the little creatures you have right now aren't going to cut it to catch most of the animals you directed to escape and come to your neighborhood before they'll be captured again. You need to make a choice. [ ] Get Annabel's active help with caring for your 'pets' and capturing the escaping animals. [ ] Take on a new form: By now you'd be about the size of a particularly large cat if you took animal form, and you know what they look like enough that you could fake being a cat or a small dog for long enough to catch one and make a more accurate copy. Specify body strucutre limbs ect ect. [ ] Take more proactive measures in mind-controlling something large enough to be able to take down a cat or something similar. [ ] Ignore it all and continue as you have been.
