[OPEN] Reflections

Post by Sayuri Motozaki on Sun Mar 17, 2013 1:10 am

Sayuri had been at Yamaku for about six weeks now. By now she had gotten used to its layout, the layout of the town below, and the faces and voices of her new classmates and of her teachers. She had, essentially, become accustomed to living here.

It's strange, thought Sayuri. When they told me they were sending me to a disabled school, I knew I was going to hate it, but...not only am I growing used to this place, but...I think I'm actually beginning to like it here. The other students aren't so bad, and the independence is good for me. It lets me prepare for adult life. For when I'm married.

Sayuri didn't like to think about getting married much these days. Whenever she did, she was always reminded of how she would never be able to walk down the aisle on her crippled legs. But of course, she would have to be married someday. Her father would not allow her to reach the age of 25 without becoming a bride, he had said so on many occasions. If it came to it, he had told her one day, he would arrange a marriage for her himself. The taste of freedom Sayuri was experiencing at Yamaku made her feel that her father had been stifling her all these years. But then, if he hadn't brought her up like this, would she not have grown into some sort of delinquent?

Sayuri has been sitting in the courtyard for a while, pondering these thoughts and others, and she remains there now, still staring out into space. She has moved so little that, if not for her steady blinking and the slow movement of her chest with every breath, one might think her dead.

Sumiko walks the courtyard lost and confused. It was her fifth time getting lost around the school grounds.
Why is this place so big? She looks around for someone nearby for help. Sumiko spots someone sitting down and scurries her way over
"E-Excuse me...?"

Sayuri's thoughts are interrupted by a small voice. She looks up to see a young, rather lost-looking student addressing her.

"Hmm? Can I help you?"

"The gymnasium?" Sayuri has never been there herself - due to her condition she can't really do much exercise anymore - but she still has an idea of where it is.

"Sure. I'll take you to it."

Sayuri wheels herself through the courtyard, heading in the direction of the gym. The newcomer's arrival adds a new thought to the myriad ones already swirling round Sayuri's head. She had, of course, spotted rather quickly that her travelling companion was missing an arm. If a girl with only one arm can do gym - and I assume she can, since she's asking about the gymnasium - then what's to stop me from getting in there and getting a little exercise? Nothing, that's what.

SUmiko looks at her escort with curious eyes.

"Sayuri Motozaki. Pleased to make your acquaintance."

She's giving me that look of curiosity people always give me whenever they're wondering how I ended up in a wheelchair. I hate that look.

As the distance between the girls and the gym begin closing in echos of noises can be heard.

"That's alright." Better than wasting your own time by wandering around helplessly.

Sayuri can hear the noises coming from the gym now. They're getting close.

Jeez, this is the only thing I come here to do now-a-days.

Oh well, I wont ever give up doing something like this until my limbs no longer work-I promise you that.


I may have moved my area for armed combat out into the woods, but my area for unarmed is best suited to be in the gym area.

It works as good stress relief even if I don't actually need to use violence to relieve my stress.

It's just fun to do this for me. After all, I seem to suck at most sports that are offered at Yamaku that are generally popular.

I throw another two punches before hopping backward a little, giving me room between me and the bag. After which, I lift my leg and turn to my left side. Connecting the part of my foot between the top of it and the toes.

Exhailing in the process.

"sseh!"

"It's...different than the other schools I've been to. It's a lot more relaxed, and the people are all rather friendly. I'm sure you'll come to like it here."

Sayuri stops outside the gym. The door is open, and she can see Satoshi inside, practising on a punching bag. As he aims a kick at it Sayuri feels a pang of jealousy. I wish I could still do that.

"Well, here we are."

'mumble mumble'

I can't make out the words but I definitely heard a voice.

Turning around, I spot Motozaki and-...someone's behind sticking out from the side of her.

"Motozaki! I haven't seen you in a while!"

I'm on the other side of the large room so I need to raise my voice a little.

Crap, I made it a point not to exibit such behavior infront of her!

Eliminating the thought and worry from my mind I try to act as if she hasn't just spotted me doing what I was doing.

"Who's...who's your friend?"

Normally I wouldn't ask such a thing but I naturally lack thought when it comes to something like this.

Curiosity usually wins in my head with something like this. That's the way my mind works.

It's not something I'm generally proud of but the words from my mouth can't be taken back.

"Hello, Veach-san." Sayuri bows in greeting, raising her own voice slightly so he can hear. "Indeed it has been a while. This is Nakagawa-san," she continues, "I assume she's a new student. She asked me to show her where the gymnasium was."

"Aaah."

That cloak seems familiar...

It's that girl!

I get a feeling of 'egh, there's no way in Hell she's going to come in here and I bet she will now be afraid of me for ever.'

"That is very kind of you."

I do my best to put on a more innocent face while still looking like myself.

It's the least I can do to make up for my threatening (well..to Nakagawa-maybe I was threatening) original appearance.

Any friend of Cook's I will probably see a lot of. I should at least get passed her judged view of me so she doesn't feel too frightened every time she spots me.

"I do not believe I formally introduced myself to you, my name is Satoshi Veach, though you may call me whatever you like."

I give a light bow after speaking to Nakagawa.

"A pleasure to make your acquaintance."

I wonder what Motozaki is thinking. I only spoke like this towards her when we met and that was a while ago so it's a big shift from my normal language and voice strength.

It takes Sayuri a moment to figure out that he is addressing Sumiko. She blinks in surprise. "You've met before?" Perhaps that explains why she looks like a frightened rabbit.

"I see...alright then." Sayuri sees no point in digging further as Sumiko already seems quite agitated, and anyway it's none of her concern.

Dude, she's really frozen there.

Think think think...

Should I leave? they seem to be blocking my exit so either way, I would have to walk past them if I went....I know, I'll wait in the boy's locker room for a bit and then head out after they are settled in.

"Well, use this place to your hearts' contents."

Maybe some other time when I'm not beating on something. I probably should in some way though if Cook plans on getting any way close to her.
