The beach, Wednesday evening
Dinah was giving Jon and Claire some 'alone time', as requested, but was too restless to veg out in front of the television. So she'd found herself wandering out down by the beach again, thinking of things discussed in class today, how the weekend had gone, and just... life. If she were Jono, she'd be on the roof. Singing the blues.

Instead, she was walking above the waves, and humming to herself. "I'm ringing all the warning bells... Careful or you'll hurt yourself.... Others lie, lie, lie, they adore you..."

[expecting one, but open before and after]

Raven had wanted to speak to Dinah, so she tracked her down to the beach. "Hello, Dinah," she called out as she approached the other girl.

Dinah startled, but didn't fall into the water, and carefully walked back to the sand, pleased with herself. "Raven, hey. How's it going?" She leaned down to pick up a shell, and held it up to the light of the setting sun. She tried to push down her own feelings so Raven wouldn't have to get a gray spill of cranky/bummed/unhappy to deal with.

"I am well," Raven said. Mostly. "How are you?"

Dinah appreciated her asking, and hoped she couldn't guess. "Bleah," she said expressively, then added, "Not bad, just a few no-fun things at once, and I could just use a break. You know?"

"I am sorry to hear that," Raven said. "Is there anything I can do to help you?"

Dinah considered, then grinned. "Dance with me?" She took a step up in the air, and giggled, a foot over the ground. "You can do it if you let me lift you?"

"I do not know how to dance yet," Raven said. Her cheeks pinked as she added, "But Mat is going to teach me."

"Oooo!" Dinah teased, reaching out very gently with her TK to let Raven float next to her, only a few inches higher. "Coooool. I'm not sure I've met him? New guy?" Some of the blah went out of her day with more girly gossip.

Floating felt strange, but Raven trusted in Dinah's powers and kept her balance, though she wobbled a bit. She could sometimes levitate herself, but only when she was deep in meditation and only a few inches above the floor.

"Yes, he arrived with the last group of new students," she said. "He is very handsome and very charming."

Which was cause for a little worry, but. Raven wasn't stupid. And she'd figured out stuff after Chuck. "Where's he from?" Dinah did a little spin in the air, then grinned at Raven. "What kind of dancing, did he say?"

"A place called Two Rivers," Raven said, attempting an unsteady spin of her own. "And...I do not know. How many kinds of dancing are there?"

"Lots," Dinah said oh-so-informatively. "I'm not really good at any of them. But they're fun anyway." Concentrating very hard on keeping her TK under Raven's feet, she did a little shimmy. "There's waltzing and modern and salsa and, oh, other stuff. I'd like to know salsa. Maybe sometime." Just this random bit of silliness had helped lighten her mood considerably, so she grinned at Raven and said, "How'd your weekend go?"

Raven lost her smile at the mention of the weekend. "It...was not good," she said. "That is actually why I was looking for you. I wanted to ask your help with something."

"Shoot," Dinah said, looking serious, and stopping her twirling, although she still floated a foot above the sand. "I mean, what do you need?"

"We come from the same -- or very similar -- worlds," Raven said. "I wish to find out information about someone who came looking for me, but I know nothing about using computers. I was hoping you could help me."
