I managed to finished it a little early.
Meanwhile, during the events in Homecoming, let's shift our focus to the "Collége François Dupont". where Marinette , Adrien, and everyone are in the classroom, talking about "Project Creed".
Marinette: I can't believe that Stérn came here for his last visit.
Alya: (looking at Marinette) "Save the best for last". Don't you remember watching Ms. Chamack's report?
Nathaniel: Yeah, i saw that. He said that coming to Paris was a "homage to his birthplace and home of his lineage".
Max: (on a computer) According to the official website, he was supposed to land at 10:24 (AM). (turing the computer around)It also says that he's going to choose models by completing a Q&A and sending a picture. There's one more thing, it said that he's looking for models that pull of a "cool, athletic, fierce, lone, or charming" look
Everyone looks at the computer
Nino: That reminds me, (looks at Adrien) Adrien, didn't you say that your dad was gonna be a part of this?
Adrien: Yeah, he has a meeting with Mr. Stérn today.
Nino:... and let me guess, your also one of the models?
Adrien: You got that right, but Mr. Stérn also said that i can recommend anyone of my friends.
Chloé: (grabs Adrien arms) Oh Adrikins, don't you think you can recommend me (looking at him)?
Marinette gets frustrated at the sight
Sabrina: And me to?
Chloé glares a Sabrina
Adrien: (lightly pushes Chloé away) Sorry Chloé, but he says thay i can only recommend people that i think are "nice and friendly".
Chloé: (looking frustrated) Fine, whatever, i can still get in myself.
Kim: "Athletic", huh? Sounds like i'm perfect.
Alix: Oh, please, don't forget about "fierce".
Jouleka: (in a shy tone) What about "lone"?
Marinette: Well, "cool" and "charming" are already taken (looks at Adrien).
A huge arguments erupts as everyone tries to explain why they would be chosen.
Alya: (walks up to the back of the room) Hey!!!
The arguing dies down as everyone looks at Alya
Myléne: (Steps in front of Alya) Let's calm down about this. There's still a chance for all of us.
Rose (Laviliant): Mylénes right, there's no need to fight.
Ivan: (looks through the window, seeing Mr. Damocles) Heads up, Mr. Damocles is coming.
Everyone heads to there seat as Mr. Damocles, followed by Ms. Mendeleiv and Ms. Bustier, walks in.
Damocles: Now, i know you children have heard of Mr. Stérn's arrival and his work, but i do not want this to disrupt your school work. You can still participate in the "contest", but you are still expected to complete and turn in all your work on time, no excuses.
The bell rings, signaling the end of the school day
Damocles: That's enough, all of you get home safetly.
Everyone gathers their stuff and heads out through the gate.
Marinette: (running)Adrien, wait up.
Adrien: (turning around) What's up, Marinette?
Marinette: (nervously) I...uh... was wondering...if...you...could...maybe... recommend me?
Adrien: Sure thing, but i'll have to do that later. I need to go, see ya (walks away).
Marinette: Oh, okay then, bye, see ya later (waving).
Marinette watches as Adrien get's in the car and leaves. Alya walks up behind her.
Alya: Well that was smooth... and a little sneaky.
Marinette: (nervously) What? Why? (gasp) he doesn't have a girlfriend, does he?
Alya: No, just asking him to recommend to you.
Marinette: Please don't tell anyone. if get picked, then i can spend some time with Adrien.
Alya: Alright, but you owe me big. I'll text you later (walks away).
Tikki: (Pops out of Marinette's purse) Why is this contest so important to you anyway?
Marinette: Because Tikki, you know it's my dream to become a fashion designer. If i get selected, then that means i get to work with Mr. Stérn and Mr. Agreste. I can learn so much from both of them.
Marinette: And it's also a chance where i get to be close to Adrien and spend time with him.
Tikki: I knew it. But don't worry, i'm sure you'll get picked
Marinette: Thanks Tikki. C'mon, let's go home.
Marinette closes up her purse as she walks towards the nearest bus stop.
Meanwhile, Adrien and his bodyguard arrives at the Agreste mansion.
Adrien: (looks at a black Lamborghini) Huh? Who's car is that?
Adrien and the "Gorrila" step out of the car and and walk towards the door. As they approach the door, they hear a voice
???: I look forward to working with you on this project, Gabriel.
Adrien opens the door and walks in, seeing Cooper shaking hands with Gabriel Agreste, with Rose and Nathlie Sancouer standing behind beside them.
Cooper: (turns around, seeing Adrien) Ah, the prodigal son returns.
Cooper walks towards Adrien, but the "Gorilla" acts aggresive towards Cooper.
Cooper: (to the "Gorilla") Easy, sir, i am merely greeting the boy... and i wouldn't recommend doing it in front of your employer and his new business partner.
The "Gorilla" stands down.
Cooper: (looking at Adrien) Hello my boy, it is good to finally meet you (extends hand).
Adrien: The same to you, Mr. Stérn (grabs his hand and shakes).
Cooper: Ah, i see word gets around.
Rose: (looking up from her tablet) Sir, Jaune is waiting for us at the "site". He says "We'rr making progress, but need the 'journals' ASAP.".
Cooper: (turns towards Rose) Then let's not keep him waiting. (turns around, facing Gabriel) I'm sorry, i wish i could continue discussing you and your son's involvement. We'll meet again tomorrow.
Gabriel: I look forward to it.
Cooper and Rose walks towards the door.
Cooper: Oh, i almost forgot! (Turns and Walks toward Adrien) If you have any questions or have anyone you can reccomend, (reaches into his pocket and gives him a card) contact me, but not today.
Cooper walks out with Rose.
Gabriel: (looks towards Adrien) Adrien, i know we both are taking on huge tasks, but i expect this won't affect your grades, will it?
Adrien: No dad, it won't (walks up the stairs).
Adrien: (turns around) yeah?
Gabriel: This project may give us the chance to actually spend time together.
Adrien:(smiling) Okay dad (goes to his room).
Gabriel:(to Nathalie) Come, we have preparations to make (walks to the atelier).
Nathalie: (walking behind him)Yes, sir, i'll start contacting our associates immediately.
Meanwhile, in Adrien's room.
Adrien:(happy) Plagg, did you hear that?
Plagg: (eating a piece of camembert) Sorry, did't get that last part.
Adrien: I finally get some time to spend with my dad.(sitting down, looking sad) But,only for a few days.
Plagg: At least look at the bright side, he'll finally have time for you, even if it is work.
Adrien: (looks up at Plagg) Yeah, i guess your right, thanks Plagg.
Plagg: No problem. Now, more cheese please.
Darien: What!? You just had 5 pieces. (gets up) But fine, only because i'm in a good mood.
