[Open-ish] Stars

Post by Kuriko Hatsuhara on Tue Apr 02, 2013 3:53 am

Walking through the corridors of Yamaku, I find myself a bit lost again. After a few minutes of aimless wandering I come across a door which I haven't found before, it kinda feels like a fire escape. Pushing the bar which opens the door, I step into the staircase and begin a slow climb, stepping carefully to avoid any trips. I reach the top and open the door, and am greeted by a wave of crisp night air, and gasp as the cold hits my lungs.

I walk along the rooftop and find myself coming to a stop by a cold metal bar.

Hmm. Must be a barrier to prevent any drunken mishaps.

It's a shame I can't see the sky... stars must be so beautiful...

I lift my head and take in the smells and sounds of the witching hour, a familiar smell which conjures up the memory of the music room intrudes my nose, and a faint snoring comes from the direction that I had just come from.

"H-hello? Is that..." The smell then clicks. That familiar aftershave, "is that Veach-chan?"

'Veach-san?'

I begin to inhale heavily through my nose.

Something I always seem to do when I am woken up as a way to help me stretch and awake my body.

[To give you a hint at the severity of how much I stretch when woken, I once threw out my back doing it.]

"SSNHHHHHHH...EHhhhhhhh....Hm?"

My head peaks up above the ledge of my little perch with major bed head.

Hair as curly as mine and waking up without taking a shower does not make for the greatest looking bed head.

A yawn escapes my mouth.

It's a definite that I have been sleeping there for a while.

"hhHHHA-...UUuuuuhhhhhh! K-kuriko? I haven't seen you in a while."

"You're not dead? That's cool-was begining to think you sailed East and fell off the face of the Earth."

What the hell is that noise?!

I start to freak out a bit, then realise it's just Satoshi.

"Ehehe, I went to Tokyo to pick up a few things. No falling off the edge of the Earth for me, no siree! I'd have to be pushed."

I sit down where I am, and sprawl out.

"How's tricks been since I knocked you out with a kiss? I know I'm damn sexy but I never thought I could do that~! I'd have done it sooner if I knew..." I say, and giggle.

[Heeeeeeeeh-I see what you did there with the 'pushed' X)]

I blush a bit.

"Sh-shut up, you!"

"I...don't know if I should take that as an insult implied for shutting me up or a compliment implied for..."

*Shudder*

I can't help but feel that way. Something about the way she expressess how she feels about me is awkward.

Or if I should just treat that as something only a puttana would say.

[Use your imagination to what puttana means...or just look it up if you're lazy.]

[I meant knock people out with a kiss Wink]

"Oh shh you. It was a compliment."

I sit up and wrap my arms around my knees, beginning to feel the cold.

"So what brings you up here on a cold, cold night Satoshi? You could catch your death of a cold with nobody - er, I mean nothing to warm you up."

I stand up. There may be a chill in the air but I still speak normal, regardless.

"It has been proven many years ago that you can not catch a cold from simple weather."

"Even so, my body rarely gets cold."

"I come up here for...thinking..

"You may find me shivering a few times but that's just my surface temperature complaining."

I hop off of the platform and somersault forward to avoid the sudden landing as usual for getting down from there.

After using the momentum to get back on my feet I walk over to the girl while speaking.

"What about you? What are you doing here?"

I take off my uniform's jacket and lightly toss it in the gap between Kuriko's legs and the rest of her upper body as I approach.

The inside of it is warm to the touch especially on the lower back part.

The fruit of a discovery on a talent of mine allowing me to mysteriously heat my back just by thinking.

Discovered it on a cold early morning one time.

"A closed school at night time in the cold is no place for someone without any business here."

I feel something heavy land in my legs, and pick it up. After exploring for a few seconds I realise it's a jacket.

"Oh... thanks."

What a gentleman.

"I'm not a big sleeper, and thought I'd explore a bit. I rarely sleep before 4-5am and get up at the usual 7am. Just a habit of mine."

"And I sure don't have business... what business do you have in mind??" I say, leaning back on one arm and chewing my lower lip. The resulting position shows off Kuriko's more... impressive aspects.

I practically walk right passed Kuriko.

I may be an almost perfect stereotype of a guy but the one flaw in that stereotype in describing me is I don't get destracted by women in that way.

A mind refined for a gentleman does not get tempted in a manor like that...

...even if it is kinda cool...

"Sa~ve it."

Yeah, there's a little puttana in there somewhere.

A little amusing when it comes to humor, but, alas, I am not like that.


Standing next to where she sits, I lean forward onto the railing with my arms on top.

Chin resting on them.

"I have no business in mind, that is why I asked if you had any."

I'll go easy on you, though.

"Anyway, it's a pleasure to have a familiar face up here every once in a while."

[Finally googled putanna. You bitch.]

He'll crumble eventually.

"A familiar face? Aww you're too cute!" I say with a giggle.

A shiver ravages my body, leaving me immobile for a few microseconds in pure cold agony.

"Shall we take this inside Satoshi? I don't know about you but I think I can feel my blood turning to ice."

I grin a good-sized grin before offering my hand.

"Here, take my hand."

My voice fleeting. Language teasing.

"I suppose it's wise to go inside. I ain't offering you my shirt too."

Flailing for a few seconds, I grab Satoshi's hand and haul myself up.

I'm a bit uneasy on my feet and I land heavily on Satoshi's shoulder "Whoops!"

"Where we headed?" I say, without dropping Satoshi's hand.

I put my hand on Kuriko's shoulder to help guide her.

Hm, not gonna let go of my hand, are ya?

I offer little resistance to her little advance.

Doesn't hurt me. Besides, who'd I be to rip myself out of her hand?

(It)'d be pretty strange.


"I don't know."

I kind of want to head to the dorms but I also feel like having someone else in my company and it would be pretty awkward sounding if I offered her to come up to my dorm.

I've also seem to have things ranging from fragile (my drawings on my desk), to expensive (my microphone and stand in the corner by the door), to plain old dangerous (My kunai sheaths hanging in the closet) in there.


"Have anywhere in mind?"

"Hmm... somewhere warm... all the classrooms will be shut, right?"

I stop and think for a few seconds.

"We could grab a few blankets from my room and sit in the common room of the girls dorm? There's stuff to make tea and a few snacks in the fridge."

"Uh, s-sure."

I may not feel cold but my face is a little frozen.

My face and my hands are the only parts of me that seem to really be effected by cold.

Leading Kuriko to the door, I open it for her and help her down the stairs and through the hall.

Hm..she knows I'd help her and use that to get close to me like this, doesn't she?

But-...but I didn't think she liked me-no-she DOESN'T like me in that way.

...Does she? She just seemed to enjoy toying with me.

A move I highly disrespect.

But was she actually?...Could it have just all been coincidence?

Is she really only a flirt? If so is it only toward me-..and Tiberius?

Exactly who is this person...What does she stand for? What motivates her?

So many variables it makes my head spin...


I stumble and almost fall through the main entrance. Almost losing consciousness.

"Hhhugh..hm!"

I stand back up and shake my head. Getting a grip on myself.

NO! I am NOT leaving my well being in the hands of a small blind girl. I've put my own self in the hands of others so many times, I can't do it to someone who doesn't even know where she is.

"Sorry.."

[Cliffs these days. Sorry - didn't realise but I cleared my cache and it signed me out so I didn't see the notification. And HEY, I don't have any ulterior motives!]

This guy is much friendlier than Hawke... he helps me get around... I wonder.

"Sorry? What for?"

[Y'take a vacation to Michigan or something? It's a fact that if you ain'a native like me and you drive around here yeh may fall into one of our sink holes in the roads. I swear, we rival Russia with how bad our roads are. X)]

She didn't feel my grip slacken?

Damn, that is a relief..


My voice is lightened and nervous.

"Eh-..nothing-heheh."

We proceed to walk to the girl's dorms with our arms practically locked. My uniform jacket around her.

My voice is not really filled with a lot of life but it's still warm. Just a second nature thing.

"We're here. Let me get the door."

I let go and guide her through.

Stepping through the door, I take Satoshi's jacket off and offer it to him, not noticing that I handed it to a door handle instead and hung it on there.

I lead Satoshi to the stairs, keeping a hand drifting along the wall, making a tap-tap-tapping noise as it drags along the spaces between the panels. [Does anyone do this IRL? It's satisfying.]

I count the doors until we reach my room, and take out my key which is hung around my neck. "Here we go."

I unlock the door and push it open, revealing a plain room with the basic amenities. Here and there are various music instruments, but keyboard dominates the far wall. Various articles of clothing are strewn around the room, some probably not fit for a boy's eyes. But of course, I wasn't to know.

"I'm not entirely sure where the blankets are... but they're here somewhere.." I begin fumbling around searching for them.

I remove my jacket and give Kuriko a 'grazie' to avoid embarrassing her on mistaking me for a door.

I don't mind. After all, my mother has done worse with butchering my name, believe me.

[Actually it isn't necessarily abnormal. There are not many people that like to exactly do that but what you have is the product of a natural process in humans. You've probably noticed that it is something many children do but not many adults. That is simply because the adults have matured more. Of course that does not essentially mean you are immature, it just means you have yet to shake that 'curious trait'-I call them. We all may carry a few curious traits for a while (in most cases depending on the rate at which your mind matures). Some curious traits may even be legit traits and are a full fledged part of your personality that you'll have until the day you die but just happen to also be a common curious trait. For instance, I myself have a legit version of the curious trait that connects everyday objects to weapons. It's just how my mind works and that's something that wont ever change even though it may decrease in severity. Some legit traits may be naturally curbed too. Your trait (if it is indeed a legit trait) will likely be one of them when you eventually grow too old to lift your arm easily enough or move fast enough to get that same sensation against your finger tips and you'll eventually stop. In the event that someone has one that is mental in it's entirety then it may carry on as long as their heart keeps beating since it has no physical requirements.
...I totally just gave you a huge lecture on human mental tendencies-sorry about that. I do that sometimes. Razz]

Fairly plain room. Expected from someone who has no need to see-is that a bra?

...ugh.


I may be the least gay male practically ever too exist, but I've always been uncomfortable when any type of emphasis is put on women (at an unfitting time) and their...women stuff.

Suddenly, though, my eyes fall upon the keyboard.

KEYBOARD!

...

okay-just a little while she's searching for the blankets.


"Eh~I~ss~uppose I can find something to occupy my time."

*PEW!*

Laser noise!

I find myself at the stool and playing my own cover of one of my personal favorites and singing a little quietly.

Of course, I don't remember my little test to see if she understands English so I don't know that she'll understand me and that there is a chance she could interpret this as some sort of challenge.

"There you see her
Sitting there across the way
She'on'got a lot to say but there's something about her
And y'don't know why but you're dying to try-ya wanna kiss the girl"

With a wide grin I look at Kuriko like a kid saying to his mother,"Look at me!-I'm singing, mamma, I'm singing!"

...and then I stop because I remembered that she can't even see my facial expression and I'm just uselessly acting funny.

That... song...

I slowly walk over to Satoshi and rest my hands on his shoulders.

I begin singing in my high voice,

Yes, you want her
Look at her, you know you do
It’s possible she wants you, too
There is one way to ask her
It don’t take a word
Not a single word
Go on and kiss the girl


I let out a girlish giggle and put my hand to my mouth and speak in English "My, oh my Satoshi, what are you suggesting?"

Hmmm...which would be more interesting of a response, I wonder?

Option One: 'Hey-it's not like I knew you can speak English and you even sang along! What does that mean for you, huh?'

Alternative 00111001: Kiss her.

Or Choice Q: Shout at her in German.

...Hmmmm..this is a really tough decision...

Bah, I've messed with people enough today. Plus, for some reason, I don't feel like messing with her.

Route Giraffe-it is!


I look upward at Kuriko who's practically above me.

"What am I suggesting? You're singing along-what are you suggesting?"

My language may suggest serious accusation but my voice is warmer to show that it is not my intention to be harsh.

A playful accusation.

"Hell, I didn't even know you knew English to begin with."
