Re-Arrival {Open}

Post by Mizo Takameshi on Fri Apr 11, 2014 8:14 pm

"It figures..." Mizo thought to himself "...The only time my parents came to see me was the day I got out of the hospital." It had been just like the last time he'd been in the hospital, they'd been too busy for him. At least that's how it felt, Mizo knew this time was quite a bit different. The drive back to the school was the most time he'd spent with his parents since he'd had his seizure almost a year before.
His parents helped him out at the school gates, and insisted that he could make it fine from there. In truth he really didn't want to be around them much, they'd never really had time for him before so why start now. They told him that they'd gotten things straightened out with the school several days before, and then they all said their good-byes. Though he'd never admit it, or say it out loud, deep down he was kind of glad to see them leave.
As he made his way through the courtyard he enjoyed the afternoon sun. Classes had already let out for the day so there were some students about enjoying the spring air. He'd gotten his glasses and was glad to be able to see it all clearly again even if only through one eye. He still felt awkward having half his limbs in casts, and needing to use a wheel chair. As he navigated his way through a maze of thoughts he'd been having he made his way over to a spot in the shade of one of the trees to enjoy the afternoon.

Whether Mizo noticed her sitting on the other side of the wide tree or not, did not matter, for she undoubtedly heard his wheelchair approach, but mistook it for someone else.

"Hello, Takara, anything interesting happen since yesterday?"

"Kinai? She must have me mistaken for someone else." Mizo thought to him self before responding to the voice.
"Sorry, but I think you have me confused for someone else Kinai."

The thud of the book she was reading being closed and the subtle shifting of dry grass being compressed preceded Chiharu's response.

She leans up against the tree, now in view, with a thick book under her arm.

"I guess new wheel chairs all sound the same."

Her slight of a smile turned to more of an apologetic visage as she says, "By the way, I'm sorry I couldn't come by to help you with your studies. The teachers didn't really like the idea of a first year tutoring a second year."
<Whether I proved that I was fully capable or not>

"It's fine, I understand. I suppose it would of looked kind of weird." Mizo replied, following it up with a question he said,
"How do you like my glasses? I'm glad to be able to read again, though the one eye thing makes it a little weird."

"It is a bit of a contradiction, isn't it?"
She pauses for a second studying his face while forming the rest of her statement
"On one hand, your glasses make you look studious, intelligent and respectable. While on the other hand, the eyepatch gives you a daring, gruff, rogueish look."
Her face softens as she lets out a soft smile as she continues with, "I think the former fits you perfectly... But who knows, maybe the eyepatch will bring out a rogue in you."
She punctuates her statement with a playful nudge to his good arm.

Chiharu's comment caused Mizo to smile, the thought of him doing anything rouge like was amusing to him (Well there was that one thing...).
"You know that might not be a bad thing, I could be the studious rouge." he said with a small laugh before adding
"The patch is just temporary though, until my eye full heals up. Even after it heals though I'm gonna be blind in that eye."

"I wonder if that counts as being partially blind, maybe they'll transfer you over to a different classroom."
Chiharu begins to look toward the horizon as she continues her musings.
"I doubt it would do much good to put you in with a class with the blind and partially blind students, other than the whole tripping hazards thing."

"I hadn't thought of that, I did just kind of lose half of my peripheral vision, and of course there's gonna be problems with depth. Though to be honest until my casts come off my chances of tripping are a little low, though with my luck I'll find a way to do it." he replied as he adjusted his glasses.
"I think the nose rests need to be adjusted." he thought to himself.

<Speaking of casts, how exactly do you manage to go anywhere but a circle when you only have the use of one arm while in a wheelchair? Why ask when I can just wait and see>
Chiharu gave Mizo a questioning look for a moment, but ended it as swiftly as she started with a slow blink and a shrug before returning her gaze to space ahead as she says plainly, "I don't believe in luck."

Emerging from a nearby archway after a grueling bout with the intricacies of the subjunctive mood in his extra-curricular French studies, Hawke espies two of his friends across the courtyard.

Kinai and Takameshi. Weird... I wonder why he's in a wheelchair.

Hawke raises his fingers to his lips and lets out a shrill whistle accompanied with a wave from his idle arm to greet his two peers, and begins the walk towards them.

Chiharu winced briefly as the whistle pierced the air, followed by an equally brief glare directed towards Hawke as he began his approach. However, as he drew near, she swept her thoughts of revenge aside with a single logical thought <I bet he just forgot the last time I told him not to do that> and greeted him with a subtle smile and a short wave.

Mizo turned to face the direction of the whistle and saw Hawke waving at them. Mizo raised his injured arm and waved back as Hawke made his way over to them.

The trek towards the pair was a hazardous one, there were several people milling about the courtyard, carrying books and other essential school paraphernalia. After successfully dodging the minefield of students, Hawke grinds to a halt to complete the trio near the school gates.

"Good morning." He says cheerfully, and gestures towards Mizo's wheelchair, "Did you finally get bored of walking? I need one of those.."

Mizo couldn't help but laugh at Hawke's comment "Er...not exactly, I was hit by a car. Between my ribs and broken arm and leg I can't really use crutches. On the up side my arm is only a hairline fracture so with any luck the cast on my arm will be off in about a week or so." Then pointing to his bad eye he added "This on the other hand is a little more permanent."

Hawke's face settles into a grimace. Pity welled up inside him as he had, once again, put his foot in the metaphorical feces. Subconsciously, his hand reaches up to his own eye to check that it's still there.

"Er... I-... I'm sorry. I didn't realise." He mumbles quietly, struggling to find somewhere to rest his gaze. Eventually his eyes settle on a fellow senior practicing her handstands in the corner of the courtyard with a few of her friends whose skirt looked further and further in danger of leading to an embarrassing accident.

"Losing the use of something you've had all your life sucks." He says quietly, returning his eyes to the boy and resting a hand on his shoulder. "If you need to talk, I've been there."

Hawke was surprised at his unexpected altruism, but figured it could only be a good thing. Most people at the school were bound by their shared tragedies, and Hawke decided to spend the little time he had left at the school helping others realise what a great place it was to be.

Chiharu turns and leans her back against the tree as she looks towards where Hawke had been looking. Cocks her head curiously. Looks back over to him. <Does he look at all girls like that? Maybe he even looks at me like that when I'm not looking. But how can I know if he is intentionally hiding it? I could always try and see if he gets distracted while talking when I'm not looking>

After a short moment of silent thought, she realizes that she doesn't really have anything to add to the conversation and decides to go back to reading her book. So, she precedes to take a couple steps away from the two boys and lays down in the grass on her belly with her legs crossed lazily in the air as she has the book in front of herself and the boys behind.

"Thanks Hawke, that means a lot. It's just...weird. Half my field of vision is just...gone. It still doesn't seem quite real." He said as he placed his hand over his injured eye as if covering the eye.

Hawke removes the hand from Mizo's shoulder and runs his fingers through the thick black hair atop his head. The theraputic massage aids in clearing Hawke's mind, and he takes a deep breath, allowing the oxygen rush to further clear his mind of the toils of the day.

"Losing the use of my leg was, well... it was like losing a leg." He begins, "Life has been so strange since then - I can no longer run, it takes me three times longer to get anywhere, I can barely even get out of bed without painkillers."

The concern on Hawke's face becomes apparent while he studies the bot before him; and he tries his best to give a reassuring smile. "The staff here are good - I'm sure there are a great deal of specialists to help you adjust to life.

"I guess I gotta make the best of a bad situation." He said as he took off his glasses and started to remove the eye patch he was wearing
"Truth is I don't actually need this anymore" he said as he put the patch away and put his glasses back on
"Guess you just gotta keep going huh?"

Hawke had to stop himself from visibly recoiling when Mizo removed the eyepatch - gore was one of Hawke's weak points. The mangled remains of Mizo's eye was not a pretty sight to behold, but Hawke's inner-Englishman prevented him from ever showing the slightest bit of impoliteness.

"And keep-... and keep going you shall." Hawke said, voice shaking slightly. "You'll be right as rain soon enough."

Mizo picked up an uneasiness in Hawke's voice, and realized right away that his bad eye must be pretty shocking still.
"OH! um...Sorry, I guess it is still kind of rough looking." he said as he proceeded to put the patch back on
"Maybe I should leave it on for the benefit of the other students." he thought to himself.

Hawke raises his hands in surrender, "It's no problem, it just surprised me is all." He explains with a smile. "I thought your eye was gonna fall out if you took it off." He continues, ending with his usual deep chuckle. "Anyways, I have to look at my calf every morning, that's enough to turn anybody's stomach. Flaunt your war-wound all you want - it won't bother me again!"

Was that insensitive...? I hope not.

"You seen the new kid?" Hawke asks curiously, hoping to change the subject.

Hearing the subject change to something interesting, Chiharu rolls over to face the others and sit up, pulling one of her knees towards her torso while also leaning on it slightly.

"There's a new student? At this time of the year?"

"No, not yet. I only got out of the hospital today." Mizo responded.
