[Open] An Introduction to...

Post by Riye Asano on Fri Aug 23, 2013 5:30 am

"It's humid tonight." I remarked to the empty courtyard.

It was a mere observation. One that didn't distract from the pouring sweat coating my body and drenching my clothes. And an observation that triggered another observation - this was my first night away from home.

....

I have this craving for home like chocolate cake during the time of my pregnancy. I didn't know why but I just want it. I want to be home even if I feel unwelcome and unwanted there.

I had to get out of my dorm... A spirit of restlessness has risen up within me and possessed my body, craving the night air and possible accompaniment. Urgh...

I finally come across a bench. Sitting down, I take out my shimasen to play a slow and melancholic version of Alphaville's famous "Forever Young" in her deadpan dreamy voice.

They need to put these vending machines inside the dorms... Yuuji thought to himself
"The one time I don't have anything to drink and it's in the evening."
He puts in 500 yen into the machine and gets some green tea. Yuuji grabs his crutches putting both of them under his right arm and begins walking back to his room.
"A snack would be nice right about now... but it's gett-" Yuuji stops mid sentence hearing a melancholic tune close to him. He looks around and sees a silhouette of someone.
From over there? he thought
Yuuji made his way over as quietly as he could hiding behind a near by tree so to not scare who was sitting on the bench.

I stop in the middle of the song and loll my head to the side; I could've sworn I heard something. With that, I also get the feeling I'm being watched. For someone with anxiety issues, whomever is out here is certainly an inconsiderate person at heart. It's easier to hide but to just approach into the open is more of a respectful thing to do.

I get up and look around, my eyes specifically glued to the trees. I'm not getting another fit about this.

"C.....come out if you're t-there please. If you wanted to watch me play, you shouldn't sneak about to do so!"

I-I could have swore I didn't make a sound! Yuuji shakes his head and without hesitation comes out of hiding. His left hand, holding the bottle of tea, raised as he walks out
"S-sorry. I didn't know who was out here." As he gets closer he bows in apology.

"No, no..."

I hastily bow as well and raise my head.

"I apologize if I came off harsh. I just...get really...really.."

I bite my tongue then shake my head to say never mind and to move on.

"Anyway, just introduce yourself next time. I like "hellos". My name is Asano Riye, Asano being my....err...family name, of course. And you are?"

"Uh...yeah, I was. Was it too loud or..."

He shakes his head
"No, no I was just walking from getting this..." he waves his drink. "... when I heard some music. I didn't think anyone would be here around this time."
Yuuji drinks his tea, relaxing a bit more.

[so sorry for the late reply's it has been a long day]

"I didn't either. I'm usually in the sheets by this hour. I just feel....restless tonight."

(It's alright, don't worry about it.)

"Not necessarily. I felt claustrophobic in my dorm and needed some air. This is my first time far away from home."

Yuuji sets down his drink to his side
"Where are you from?"
He asks curiously. Yuuji could not tell from the darkness whether Riye was foreign or not.

"My mother and sister moved up there from all the way down in the Ryukyu Islands before I was born. It doesn't matter...I can't really go back there."

I return to my seat and shift my gaze to the sky.

"Sure.... Thanks."

I gently take the drink from your hands, crack it open and take a sip. After I'm done, I hand it back and rub my mouth with the back of my hand.
