Happy Birthday to V (open)

Post by Vincent Hawk on Thu Nov 05, 2015 12:16 pm

Vincent whistled the tune of "Happy Birthday to Me" as he strode into the cafeteria for breakfast, his cape billowing out behind him. One of the very few things he disliked about dressing up for his birthday was that nobody could see the huge grin on his face. On the other hand, a smiling mask amounted to the same thing. But there was also the problem of trying to sign with the mask on. Gloves were all well and good, but ASL relied on facial expressions as well as hand movements.

Diana walked calmly beside Vincent, watching those already in the cafeteria for their reactions to his antics. The older students would be used to him by now, but there were bound to be freshmen in both the Academy and University who would be amused, or startled, or both. She was pretty sure Vincent would take it upon himself to dress up for his birthday even if it didn't fall on a national holiday already. He hardly needed the excuse.

Sarah blinked as the two professors came in, one looking perfectly normal, the other looking like they'd just stepped off the set of V for Vendetta. Slowly she leaned over to one of the nearest students and asked in a murmur, "This is normal right? I mean, normal for this place?"

Tebryn glanced up from his geometry and caught sight of the yearly one-man parade. He sighed through his nose and nodded to Sarah.

"Every year. You get used to it." He gave the shadow of an amused little grin and shook his head. "He wore that mask for an entire week last time. Until Kemekin got ahold of some fireworks and recreated a milder version of V blowing up parliament on the roof. Claimed it was his birthday present for Vincent."

He rolled his eyes and went back to his work, muttering about how this school had no chill.

Sarah stifled a laugh. "That's kind of awesome. Bet he watches the movie every year, too."

"Mm." Tebryn gave a noncommittal shrug and didn't move his gaze from his homework. "Sounds like something he'd do. It's a good movie."

Du poked her head out of the kitchens and grinned. Good, Vincent was here. She ducked back inside and pulled the tray of cupcakes out of the freezer, then retrieved the sparklers she'd found for the occasion. She'd ended up twisting two together by the handles, so the parts that would burn formed a V. This she stuck into the middlemost cupcake, then looked around for something to light it with. "Can't have a Guy Fawkes celebration without fireworks. Accio matches!"

The matches did not obediently zoom out of a cupboard into her hands. She shrugged and kept hunting. "Got to be here somewhere..."

Roo sidled into the kitchen and gave Du a curious look as she headed towards the far cabinets. She was too short to reach the higher shelves, but no one had yet to tell her that climbing on the counters was forbidden. So up she hopped, to find one of the heavy-duty plastic cups with the wire balls inside. Perfect for protein shakes made with powder.

"Whatcha lookin' for?" She steadied herself on her knees as she reached up for the second shelf and tried to find a matching cup and lid.

Du looked over at the younger girl and grinned. "Matches. How about you? I can reach the higher stuff if you're having trouble."

Roo answered her grin with a cautious little smile of her own, and nodded. She slid off the counter and pushed her sleeves up. "I'm looking for one of the blending cups. It's hard to find the matching lids when they're all above eye level."

"I think I remember where the matches are. Lessee..." She toddled over to the pantry where the baking ingredients were stored and knelt down to the lower shelves, which was all aluminum foil and parchment paper. And a big tray of matchbooks. She selected one and stood, holding it out to the taller girl as she approached. "Here you go. Who are the cupcakes for?"

Du found a matching cup and lid in robin's-egg blue for Roo, and handed them over as she took the matches.

"They're for Mr. Guy Fawkes out there," she said, jerking her head toward the kitchen door. "Also known as Professor Vincent. He does the whole dress-up thing every year for his birthday."

She lit a match, then the sparklers, and picked up the tray of cupcakes in both hands. "Mind holding the door for me?"

Grinning, she launched into a chorus of the Happy Birthday song as she carried the tray out to where the Hawks were sitting.

Vincent looked up as someone burst into song, and a few others around the room joined in. Those cupcakes looked delightful, and the sparklers were a very fitting touch. He stood up to acknowledge Du as she came to his table, and gave her a small bow -- careful not to let his wig get in the way of the sparklers.

"Thank you very much, Du. These look delicious."

Du grinned and curtsied back. "I hope so. They were a lot of fun to bake."

Vincent pulled off his wig and mask and set them aside, then carefully picked up the nearest cupcake. "Few things are better than having dessert for breakfast on one's birthday."

He peeled back the paper and took a careful bite, closing his eyes as the sweet flavors burst over his tongue. Was that strawberry jam in the icing? He sighed in contentment as he swallowed and licked his lips. "Marvelous, my dear, simply marvelous. Thank you very much."
