Open: Articulate Silences

Post by Nicholas H - Dazai on Thu Mar 21, 2013 3:42 pm

Nicholas enters the school library, silent as a held breath, his eyes scoping the place for an empty seat. There is none. People work diligently and focused in silence. The librarian seems to be preoccupied herself with some work on her computer. She peers up, seeing him in her peripheral, and smiles.

She whispers, "Hello and good morning. How may I assist you?"

Nicholas simply bows, a gesture serving as his greeting, and ambles away toward the back of the library through the various rows of shelves without saying a word. In the back, there is a chair and classroom desk unoccupied. Nicholas sighs and sits on the chair, stretching his legs under the desk. He sits still for a few seconds then retrieves his notebook from his satchel. Opening it, sheet after sheet, page after page is filled with lyrics. He turns to a clean page and stares out the window, thinking to himself before scribbling away in the notebook. He was glad to finally have some solitude and peace; he had simply stormed off in silent anger at his sister in forcing him into playing in public like that...

A young boy in crutches passes by looking for a book to read. Come on where is it? He thinks to himself
He looks to his right seeing a boy writing in his notebook Probably some work he has to do before lessons start
He returns to searching "Found it."
He takes out a book called The Darkangel With nowhere to sit he makes himself comfortable setting his crutches to the side and sitting down where he pulled the book from.

Nicholas' sensitive ear hears the repetitious muffled clack and drag of the crutches against the carpet and pulling him out of his stream-of-consciousness trance, throwing his writing off. Well...mostly the fact that someone else's presence and close proximity to him. He closes his eyes and puts in his headphones, scrolling through to select Brian Eno's Spider and I, the blissful ambience and deep, sleepy vocals putting him at ease. He resumes writing before scrapping it out of disgust. He still couldn't write worth a toss. Nicholas felt powerless as numerous thoughts ran rampant in his head before he speaks aloud in a near-silent murmur.

"Stop."

The sound is heard but it was only faint to Yuuji's ears, though it barley interrupted his reading he looks up at the boy next to him.
He seems trouble...
He sighs before closing his book then proceeds to lightly tap the boy.
"Something wrong?" He whispers

Nicholas felt his skin crawl and shrink away from the tap and he turns around, his eyes apprehensive and his body tense like a coiled snake. He didn't very much like people touching him, especially if he didn't know them. He silently regards Yuuji before giving a slow shake of the head.

"No."

Yuuji nods "Sorry for bothering you then."
A slight cold shivers goes down his spine so He adjusts himself once more and resumes reading.

He becomes quiet once again and checks his watch, cursing his inability to interact normally with other people. He read Yuuji's body language easier than a children's colouring book; he could tell he gave unintentionally gave off an foreboding air and sulk. Nicholas bows and goes to the desk, salvaging his notebook and slinks out of the library. He was abhorring his first day already.

Yuuji watches as the boy leaves. Yuuji waves him off but it does not matter its not like the boy looked back to see.

"I probably caught him on a bad day... I hope that i meet him again correctly"
