Mateo tapped his foot nervously against the floor. He kept his hands still in his lap and waited in the empty room. Nothing about the tests were anything he could have come close to expecting. The manners portion, Mateo did his best to seem refined and keep the conversation interesting. And then all the questions, about his family and so many things he could hardly even think of what they didn't ask about.

He was sure it wasn't bad sign, this empty room. Mateo tried not to think back to the days before. The strange tests and questions he found invasive. He was asked to come here. Was asked really the word to use when a Queen proposed you join a private group and sent you off to an elite school to be tested? He was trying to decide when the door opened.

Relief was clear on Mateo's face when another person joined him in the room. The silence was almost disturbing and he started speaking as soon as the door closed. "It's probably a good sign, right? Being put in this room off from everything?" He didn't give pause for her to answer just yet before he continued. "I mean, it could be another test. I'm Mateo." Mateo smiled, hoping to drown the silence with some smalltalk at the least.

What do you want from me? I'm not America's Sweetheart

The physical test threw her off. Then the interrogation finalized her conclusion: this wasn’t just an etiquette school. She couldn’t exactly recall, behind the stress, how she’d landed herself here so unprepared. As she walked out of the interrogation, her mind still running with ideas about her family history, she walked into the waiting room only to be immediately subjected to conversation. Though she was offput at the idea of someone just talking at her and expecting her to catch up, the boy in the room seemed to mean well.

After everything she’d just been through, she didn’t know what she was getting tested for anymore, but he could have been a test himself. Still, he seemed desperate to talk by the way the words poured out of him. She wasn’t going to treat him to silence in return. Ana wasn’t the kind of person to survive a challenge at someone’s expense. That would be cheapening her worth and ability to overcome regardless.

“Anastasia,” she answered with her name, her voice measured and her body bending into a slight curtsy out of politeness. “This is likely just a waiting room.” She didn’t completely believe that, but she’d stay braced for anything and act as she normally would. She saw a mirror on the other side of the room and scurried over. “Oh thank heavens, some salvation.” She adjusted her ruffled hair in the mirror, trying to rescue her already compromised bun. The physical test had roughened her appearance, but she heard a few important names dropped during the session. In case anyone of import came along, she had to look her best.

“For an etiquette school,” she said discreetly, not feeling like making a giant announcement of this, “they did a strange job on re-lacing my corset.” Pouting at her reflection, she shrugged to herself. “The least they could have done was warn us about the physical test. The whole examination seemed a bit dramatic to me.” Since she didn’t trust him very much, she didn’t let on that she didn’t know what she was here for. “I had to change into a uniform just to be able to participate. You seemed to have come prepared.” At least, she assumed the outfit he was wearing was a result of necessity and awareness, not a matter of his personal taste. No one of import like she assumed he was would wear clothes like that by choice to such a formal affair. “Lucky man. How did it go for you?”

Finally there was a chance to simply talk with some freedom. Mateo wasn't entirely sure this girl was not just another person sent to test him but he couldn't stand being quiet any longer. He smiled at her introduction, giving a slight nod as he spoke "It's a pleasure to meet you, Anastasia."

The suggestion of the room being just a waiting area was not unlikely. Mateo had been sitting by himself for what seemed like ages before Anastasia showed up. He watched her hurry over to the mirror and straighten up her appearance some. After the first round of physical test Mateo gave up on the idea of keep his hair looking normal. His clothes we at least buttoned properly and somehow still looking alright. "You might do better taking it down and tying it up again. I can manage a decent french braid if you'd like."

Of all the things his sisters insisted Mateo learn, hair braiding seemed to be the most important. He couldn't say he had much need for the skill with no siblings around to bug him for help with their hair but it was a skill he had non the less. Mateo blinked at her calling this place an etiquette school. Aside from the meal there was nothing that he could find suggesting this place to be school for manners and what he heard before coming here conflicted with that notion. If this were still a test however Mateo would not be the one to give out information he shouldn't. "This is a strange school altogether, isn't it?"

Mateo's nervous foot-tapping dissipated with the beginnings of their conversation. He took a moment to look around their surrounds again for any sign of what was to come next but found nothing interesting or out of place besides the two of them. "It would have been, but I suppose that's part of the test. Element of surprise or something like that." Mateo agreed. With the mention of coming prepared Mateo glanced down at his daywear and chuckled. "You could say that."

He frowned at Anastasia's question with uneasiness still swirling in his belly. "I could hope to say well, but then again I'm not the one judging. " Mateo shrugged, trying to seem hopeful even if he didn't hold much confidence in the matter. "How about you?"
