Aries pov

So, we were heading back to the dungeons, luckily Cappy has a good memory so we weren't lost. We were almost there according to her, when we ran into two other people. They were in our year, I think. Damn it, we're gonna get caught.

"We won't say anything if you don't." said Scorpio.

"Deal." said the girl, the boy looked like he was half asleep.

"Wait." Scorp gave me an annoyed look, but I went on. "Who are you guys? you're in year one right?"

"yea. I'm Cancer, and that's Leo." said the boy. "Who are you guys?"

Cancer pov

We ran into three other kids on our way back, and now we were working on introductions.

"We don't have time for introductions Aries." said the guy. The girl who asked our names must be Aries. There was another girl who was quiet as of now.

"I'm Aries, that's Capricorn, and that's Scorpio." she introduced herself and her friends.

"That's great, now let's go." said the Scorpio guy. Aries nodded and waved at us as they walked past.

"bye, see ya around." she said.

"See ya." I called back. Leo rolled her eyes and dragged me along.

Leo pov

Great, we made new friends, I couldn't care less. We were going to get in trouble if we don't get out of here now. I grabbed Cancer by his arm and dragged him along to where I think the common room is. Luckily, I was on the right path, and soon enough we crawled through the portrait and into the common room, which was thankfully empty.

"That was stupid." I told him.

"It was your idea."

"Not the exploring idea, the talking to some random people we found instead of hurrying back so we don't get in trouble."

"Oh. heh."

"what 'heh'?" damn I was pissed.

"I should go sleep." He squeaked out before rushing up to the boys' dorm. I sighed and went up to my dorm. Libra and the other girl I was sharing with seemed to be asleep, so I quietly went and lay down on my bed, eventually drifting off as well.

Capricorn pov

So we met two more people who were stupid enough to be out of bed in the middle of the night. I can't believe I let Aries drag me along, but now it's too late. I sighed, leading them back to the dungeons. We made it soon enough, and I said the password, the gate opened and we slipped in. Thank the gods, there was no one there waiting for us so they could kick us out.

"You. Are. The. Most. Idiotic. Person. I. Have. Ever. Seen." said Scorpio to Aries.

"Then you clearly haven't looked in a mirr-"

"Both of you are idiots. We shouldn't have been out and about in the middle of the night, be thankful we didn't get caught and go get some sleep so you're prepared for tomorrow." After saying my piece, I grabbed Aries' arm and dragged her up the steps to our dorm. The two girls we share with were already asleep, and we went and lay down on our own beds, she fell asleep almost immediately, I tossed and turned for a while before sleep overtook me.

Scorpio pov

Damn it, we almost got caught. We would have been found if I hadn't dragged that idiot away, and Cappy was no help at all. I made my way down to my dorm, which I apparently shared with two other guys, and fell onto my bed.

"Hey, you're back." I looked to my right and saw some white haired dude looking at me.

"No, I'm Scorpio." he laughed. [Hehe dad jokes]

"Nice to meet you Scorpio, I'm Ara. And the one who fell asleep already is Cepheus, my brother."

"That's cool." I wasn't even paying attention, my eyelids were getting heavy and I was slowly nodding off. I heard a chuckle and a faint good night before sleep pulled me away.


Sorry if I'm confusing you with all those characters, but it'd be kinda weird if there were only 12 first years right? I had to put at least a few more. I decided to list out the extra characters in the next chapter to make it less confusing, and add pictures along with their houses too. Their sexuality isn't decided yet, and yes, you can ship the zodiacs with them too.
