Snails of flight

Post by Satoshi Veach on Thu Mar 28, 2013 8:58 pm

It is lunch time.

A huge urge to draw has hit me this day and I am nearly done with a light morning project.

Right now I am in the library finishing it up because the tea room was suprisingly occupied a little more than what would be comfortable for me.

Little noises of pencil on paper can be heard around.

*Fh..fh-fh....fh fh fh fh..fh-fh*

Surprisingly this may be the first time I haven't fallen asleep after a considerable amount of time in the library.

Through my lips comes humming. 'Boats and Birds' is the song but I wouldn't be surprised if nobody who heard me recognized it.

Or if they even heard me at all. You would have to be near me to hear.

However, in this case, someone can hear me. My ear buds are in but they are turned down so I do not detect anyone's foot steps approaching.

My book is a little exposed. The image revealed.

"Hmmm hm-hmm hm hm hm hm-hmmm.."

"Jss lve me y'star dst t'rem-mber y'beh"

Sumio hide behind a bookcase watching what Veach is doing. She catches a glimpse of what he is drawing Why is he drawing that...? poor snail...
She slowly walks up to him and looks down at the drawing
"H-hi Veach-san"

I set my pad down and quickly (but nonchalantly to avoid suspicion) cover it's content.

Was never the type to show unless asked.

My right hand goes in my pocket. unplugging the buds and plugging them back in as a quick means to pause and silence my music.

After pulling them out with a tug forward I respond.

"N-Nakagawa!-Salve!"

My speech is a little loud for a library's. This is due to a little nervousness inflicted by the facts that-

1: She may have seen my piece.

and 2: We haven't directly seen each other since she saw how far my mind's limits go while still being able to be considered my true nature that night of the attack.

It could of been anyone else to see my almost boundless limits but it had to be Sumiko.

The reason why I can push my mercy's limits so far-to use such force upon something and make it look so brutal without breaking a sweat is I do not think of my own morality.(Explaining in a way that can make more sense) If one thing is a threat to society in any way my mind's lock receives a key to nearly infinite sanity even when it comes to taking something's life.

Of course this theory has not been tested with a human's life for me and I doubt that may ever happen so more study is needed but not wanted.

It is another defense mechanism of my mind. One more talent of mine that mysteriously and conveniently is only good for survival situations.

Guess I'm just born for a time long past.

Nobody needs such mind sets now-a-days.

Not unless you're Bear Grylls.

But he's piss-for-brains, anyway.

I mean, you are what you ingest, 'm I right?

Did I scare him? He sure did quickly cover up his drawing She looks around noticing a few student close by rambling about Veach's slightly loud tone when he addressed her
"W-what are you drawing?"

Hhheeeeeh...

My hand lifts back off of my work.

Voice a bit more hushed after the slip of volume.

"Oh, just a little sketch."

"I thought I'd draw something-"

I was going to say less aggressive since almost all of my drawings have some sort of weapon in them but I refrain from using the term since Sumiko might already find me a bit...e~eh..off.

"-a little more creative."

"It's a snail tied to some balloons."

"Ain'e'cute?"

A small vein of fondness trickles through my words. I may not find the snail cute but I generally am proud of my imagination I put into the concept.

Knowing some girls find something like this cute, though, it seems appropriate to ask even if it is just out of curiosity.

Being honest, it is also just a little test to see if I did a great job on it.

The circumstances don't allow for a test to see if it's good or not but this will do for now to at least give me a hint on outside opinion.

The upside to taking an interest in the human mind's mechanics is I can use these tests as judgments.

For instance, in one case I showed a drawing of orbital frames from Zone Of The Enders to my brother.

'Hey, Al, recognize these?'

'.......Are these from the game where you're in the robots and the cockpit looks like they got a giant-...yeah?'

'BOOM!-Y'got it!'

That is how I knew I did a good job. He hasn't played that game in years and was able to recognize them.

She giggles a bit at his small comment on his own picture. IT was not what she would expect nnot after see all the weapons he carries with him but it reassured her and made her feel a bit more confident around him. He DID protect her so she owed him that much.
"I-Its cute...."

BOOM-HEADSHOT!

KILLING SPREE!

M~M~M~M~M~M~M~M~MONSTER KILL-KILL-KILL-KILL!


I notice her expression change drastically.

Hm...So she really does not find me as a monster, does she?

If anything, I am more like a 'gentle giant' to her. Minus the 'giant' part and more replaced with 'tall dude'-but close enough.

I-...I've never been thought of in that way before.

It is strangely comfortable to be thought of in such a way...



"Hmhm."

*E*"Thank you."

My voice is quite warm unlike my usual monotone speak. My default tone when I express gratitude.

I'm about to ask what she's doing here but then I bite my tongue in order to stop me from asking such a terrible question.

Instead I go with a similar question that is less...common sense-filled.

"So, do you come here for just the books or peace and quiet?"

I glance over to the people, singling each of them out with special glances toward each to deter them a little.

Truth be told, my look is normal and not frightening at all, but my reputation is simply enough to have an effect.

After all, I'm known to hang out on the roof which they turned into a rumor that I apparently wait for unsuspecting victims to wander up there.

There is also word going around that I often visit the school psychotherapist which is true but this has caused many to believe I have lost my sanity.

There was even a little commotion about me back when I brought my tonfas to the gym.

Of course, that was in need of no rumors to further lower my reputation among the pathetic.

"..."

"Here-come on."

I grab Sumiko's wrist (Hand would be too much. Can't do that to a friend-just ain't my style!) and tow her out of the library.

I let go since we are now in the open and Sumiko can follow me easier.

"Roof is better."

"Any time you want peace is a good time up there."

I personally do not know why I am doing this myself. Perhaps I just feel a natural urge to take her there?

It is a mystery to myself as much as it is to her.

We open the door with a loud creaking noise and enter.

Immediately I move out in the open more and spread my arms out.

"Much more open up here, ain' it?"

After wards, I leave Sumiko's side and go around the door way before backing up for a running start.

*chih chun chih chun chih-chun-chih-chunchihchunchihchun*

I leap up and grab onto the side of the little overhang above and to the side of the door. Pushing on the wall with my feet and pulling myself up on the roof part I end up on my little spot in no time.

"I'll come up here from time to time."

Notgonnaendwellnotgoonaendwellnotgonna-

"Huh-eh."

I lift up.

-dude-holy crap, she is light!

Sumiko may be light, but I am still not the strongest when it comes to arm strength.

It's still difficult to get her up.

Halfway up, the edge line is by her upper-stomach. Her arms are up but if I pull on them any more she'll just get hurt. Next is the lower pulling part.

O-..oh lord, where the hell am I supposed to pull...

If she were a guy, I wouldn't hesitate to grab the back of the pants but she isn't.

Just about everwhere is not a good place.

After all, not only am I dealing with a taken girl, I am dealing with a girl taken by one of my best friends.

I try the side of her pants but they are not very baggy even for a girl's. After that I try her stomach under the ledge which works for a bit but I begin to get my hand pushed downward by the ledge.

I blush a bit when I think of what would happen...

"..Leh!"

..And then quickly remove my hand.

"Eh-Uh~uh where..where should I pull?!"

My left wrist is in pain now. The, now unbandaged, scar hidden undeneath my sleeve throbbing.

Mother fucker...

Then an idea hits me.

The least..eh...friendly...position I can use is..

"Here!"

I wrap her arms around my neck.

Wrapping my own around her upper torso and pulling up under her arms.

It's a bit of an...intimate position but I'm pretty sure pulling anywhere else would make...eh~special contact with my hands or eyes.

After she's up I fall back but she's just a little slow on the let go. Putting her on top of me.

Now what I want to do is:

'WHEH!' *Shove*

But I restrain myself and settle for a rather large blush.

owowowow that hurts... Just now she notices that she is on top of Veach and blushes. Sumiko quickly gets off him and faces out toward where they entered not saying a word.

"So...so-how do you like it up here?"

"Tallest point in the entire area and it's practically my own."

I stand up. Up next to the ledge.

My posture much better than usual.

Spine bent backward instead of straight, though. Like a cheetah's.

A trait held by a number of my father's family.

Sumiko looks out into the horizon. overlooking the school; feeling like she is on top of the world.
"I-It's pretty... I can't believe that you had this to yourself."
She playfully nudges him and sits next to Veach

My voice becomes less flowing. A bit monotone.

Directed more to the air than the girl at my feet.

"The three places here at Yamaku that put me in different worlds."

"The tea room in the world of sketch..."

"The band room in the world of music..."

"And this very spot."

"The world of thought and dreams..."

I sit down beside Sumiko. My feet dangling off the ledge.

At this point the upper domed sky is occupied by the sun and painted a deep blue.

My voice now gains more warmth and speaks to Nakagawa.

"So far, I've found that I'm the only person that goes up here often due to the energy needed to get up here."

"If you think about it, few come up to the roof so you can expect even fewer go up here. Then even fewer than that generally come back."

I lean back, putting my hands down behind me, and rest my right ankle on my left leg.

"That's where I come in."

"I-I'm amusing you come here very often the Veach-san."
She kicks her legs out playfully into the air and leans on her left hand.
"Veach-san.... W-What happened in the forest when you and senpai where there? why did you tear down the trees?"
She looks at him with concerned but curious look hopping to get an answer.

SHE SAW THAT?!

H-..h-how did she know those were not broken by natural causes?

That is a difficult study to learn, impact damage...

No. She does not know how to look at that stuff.

She is just going by inferance.


My mind is now troubled but I keep that suppressed and my facial expression normal.

What I think:

'W-what happened in the forest when you and senpai where there?'

Sceptor 2, bandit on your six.

Evade-say again-evade.


'Why did you tear down the trees?'

Bogey launching missile-deploying counter measures.

Translation to a normal person's thought:

Best let Chris tell her.

She can settle for an obscuring truth for now.


"He may not look the part, but Chris is very strong."

"Much stronger than any normal kid his size."

I look back the the horizon.

Bringing my right foot back up on the edge of the ledge and resting my right arm on top of my knee while still leaning back.

This puts my back and shoulder more to Sumiko. I don't do it purposely but my shoulder and my hair hide my face almost completely in this position.
