Delphi stares at the unveiled display, mouth hanging in shock. It's not often... okay, who am I kidding, Delphi knows quite well that she's been struck speechless fairly regularly a number of times recently, but she was expecting something underneath that sheet. Just not something that would get the media more attention than the fact that 'Dryads could be stuck in the body of a 5 year old for the rest of eternity'. A second later, Delphi realises something, an intention that she is now grateful that she left unsaid.
Boy, am I glad that I didn't offer to produce wood for her to sculpt with. She might have made one of me next! Delphi thinks to herself, slight horror coming into her eyes.
A few seconds later, Delphi realises something. She turns to the camera's and ask the media, "You're all here because this isn't the first time she's done something like this, aren't you?"
A nameless reporter shrugged. With the cameras all turned to Piper, they could pretty much talk without being overheard. "Actually? I'm here because this is the first time Adrian Roche has done something that's not a human interest story, and because there was going to be information about the Meta club."
Another one responds. "Did they really fight off a werewolf riding an upright?"
"I heard they shot it in the face."
"I heard they have Chinese Ninjas."
"Ninjas are Japanese!"
"Well, at least we settled the 'consort with demons' thing. Pity, we could have got some decent press from accusing them all of worshiping Satan."
"Maybe they're in league with Burma?"
"Nah...that's too much, we'd got to get SOME evidence..."
Alexis nearly spits in her drink, and she leans forward hard over the table to protect her blouse from staining. After hacking up the rest of her beverage, Alexis, digs into her jacket to grab her smart phone and begins to dial up Greta.
"Hello, Ms. Van Hout? Is there a TV in front of you? See if you can change it to the college news stati-- Actually, I'll send you a video." Alexis sets her smartphone to transmit footage, and points it at Piper's statue. "Your last recruit is set to add a new dimension of controversy to the Meta Club, if they are sticking to their goals over there."
