[Open] Dead Silence

Post by Eric Grimm on Mon May 06, 2013 4:41 pm

It's a gloomy day in Yamaku, and many of the students are hiding in their dorms from the wind and the rain. The sky was dark, and the mood darker.

A taxi rolls up, paid for by the nearby hospital, and Eric steps out without an umbrella. From behind a nearby lamppost his cat, Lenin, skulks toward him and weaves in and out of his legs. Giving the cat a quick stroke, Eric shuffles through the school gates and gazes around, wondering where the hell he was supposed to go.

Yuuji watches the taxi drive off into the distance and a rather dark character entering the school grounds. Yuuji pulls up his hood and walks over to greet the young man
"Hey there!"
First impressions are everything when meeting someone new got to keep that in mind.... he thinks to himself
his eyes shift downward a bit and seeing the cat near the boy's feet

Eric turns around to face Yuuji, and looks him up and down. He gives a grunt and says "Hello." The rain by this point was almost torrential and Eric was getting soaked, but it didn't seem to bother him.

He kneels down and strokes his cat, who is letting off a rather foul stench.

Ergh... he needs revitalising soon...

"I'm Eric Grimm." The boy says, and then gestures to his cat, "And this is Lenin. Don't touch him, you'll probably catch some disease or another."

Yuuji looks down at Lenin the stench reaches his nose and he slightly covers up
Man that's a strong smell... I'll keep that in mind
"Nice to meet you Eric." Yuuji reaches out one hand to shake while barley keeping his right crutch under his arm
"I'm Yuuji Takahashi."

Eric wasn't fond of human contact, and especially adverse to physical contact. As a child, Eric had never learned proper manners like you would as a normal child, so he just gazed at Yuuji's hand, then looked back into his eyes and gave a good, hard stare.
"You look like you're about to fall over." He says in a monotone voice.

Okay no handshake then.... that's fine.. Yuuji pulls his arm back and returns to his normal position
"I'm fine. I can catch myself seven out of ten times."
Yuuji shives a bit as the cold starts to get to him
"Eric are you new to the school? Just transferring?"

"Seven out of ten? That's oddly specific." Eric says, while raising a quizzical eyebrow.

Eric notices Yuuji is shivering, and smiles to himself, knowing that this cold is nothing compared to the cold winter in New York.

"Yeah. I was involved in that hou-..." Eric stops before he reveals information about himself. I barely know this guy. Why should I tell him my story?? "Yeah. I just transferred."

The stench of Lenin begins to overpower Eric's senses and he mutters, "Hang on." to the stranger and turns around and kneels before his cat.

He takes out his small knife and makes an incision in the usual spot on his palm, which has a fairly large scar on it already. He whispers a couple of lines in an unknown language to Lenin and pats his head again. He puts his hands in his pockets before turning back to Yuuji.

"Sorry. He was.... hungry. Had to feed him."

Eric glances around a few times, and begins frowning. "Where am I supposed to go?"

Hawke peers out of his bedroom window in between playing a game on his PC and procrastinating, and notices a strange figure talking to Yuuji. Taking a closer look, he doesn't recognise the boy at all and goes to investigate.

Stepping out into the rain, Hawke hurries over to the pair, struggling on his bad leg, and comes to a halt just beside Yuuji.

"Hello." Hawke says, gazing at the figure who is just standing up from doing something to his... cat!

Hawke absolutely adores cats and immediately lets out a small squeal. His eyes widen in horror, and coughs a couple of times and mutters. "Uh... nice cat."

Manliness compromised. Engage badass mode.

"Hi, I'm Tiberius Hawke," he begins, "I'm the resident badass here at Yamaku."

"Hungry... right...." Yuuji clears his throat mistified about what Grimm was doing
I'm not going to even bother to ask what he just did not the time or place for it either
"Hello'
Blood hell Hawke stare me half to death why don't you!
"Hey Hawke how you doing...?This is Eric Grimm he just transferred here."

"A-America." He replied.

Why are they so interested?

In all honesty, people made Eric nervous. He'd never had a true friend since the girl he met in New York. And that hadn't ended well...

"Where are the dorms?" He asks, directing the question at Yuuji.

Eric replies with a simple "Yes."

He beckons his cat and nods at Hawke and gestures for Yuuji to lead the way.

"I guess I'll tag along, I'm going that way anyway."

Hawke reaches out a hand to take Eric's luggage from him.

Eric's hand recoils as soon as Hawke's comes into contact. It was the hand he'd cut, and he didn't wan't anyone to find out about his secret.

"NO!" He shouts, and pulls he bag closer to himself. "I-I'm fine." He begins walking in the way Yuuji directed.

Yuuji continues walking. He tires to spark a conversation
"How long have you had your pet cat?"

"His name is Lenin. And since I was about 15... He's a faithful companion. I have a bunch of other pets but they... come and go."

Eric grins at his little joke that only he would understand. Lenin was the only pet that he'd bothered to keep alive, all the bats, rats and frogs that he'd revived over the years bored him quickly, but not Lenin. There was one dog that he'd liked, but it was responsible for the lack of Lenin's right ear. Eric had burned the dog alive. Well, dead. Alive. Dead... You get the idea.

"I was joking earlier, you can touch him. He just gets a little cranky if he hasn't been... fed."

The stench had started to disappear from Lenin, and he was looking overall much healthier. Eric was just glad he'd worked his magic before the gangreen had set in.... That was a difficult one to explain to his mother.

Hawke decided to keep his distance after Eric's outburst... something was wrong with this kid. He didn't know, but Hawke could sense something just wasn't quite right in Eric's head.

There's definitely a screw loose in there. Or some terrible dark secret.

"I had a cat once. It was black, too. I called him Putin, great minds think alike, eh?"

Eric glances at Hawke out of the corner of his eye. "Quite."

This guy tries too hard... he seems like the ladykiller type who is all talk and no action. I can't wait for him to make a wrong move, people like him have kept me downtrodden my whole life.... I wonder how he'd like a swarm of skeletal rats in his bed at night.

"You have also had a cat too Hawke?"
Yuuji chuckles a bit
"I would pet your cat Eric but with all due respect not right now especially in the rain. Plus we are almost there."

"Understandable."

They arrive at the doors of the dorm, and Eric opens the door, and strides through, letting it shut behind him. He stands in the hallway and glares out at the two men outside, impatiently waiting for them to join him.

Lenin begins meowling incessantly, and Eric tells him to shut up.

"Yup, I had a cat. He's still alive, back at home though."

As they arrive, Hawke politely lets Eric goes first, and walks straight into the door when Eric doesn't hold it open for them both.

"How rude.." He mutters to Yuuji, and holds open the door and ushers Yuuji inside.

"Thanks for holding the door and all..." Hawke grumbles.
