'Oh crap, oh crap, oh crap, oh crap, oh crap...'

Wade mumbles to himself as he literally storms inside the school, fully convinced that he is incredibly late. It's not really the exam that he's scared of missing, though - yesterday, he spoke with his niece on the phone and had arranged to meet her near the entrance of the school in order to lead her safely into the changing room. Being a blind six year old girl who has never visited the high school before, Ellie would most likely panic if there's not a single friendly face to meet her and help her get to the gym. Wade promised to be there on time, but even though he woke up when his alarm rang, he still experienced some... unexpected difficulties while preparing for his homework club assignment. Nevertheless, even though said assignment was eventually completed, it took him way longer than he had anticipated, and that led to his current situation.

The boy leans against one of the pillars supporting the entrance to catch his breath, then turns around and start looking through the students walking inside towards the changing rooms. There are a couple of kids around, but no sign of a little, blond girl. 'Ellie!' he yells out, causing a few eyes to turn towards him, but that's the only response he gets.

At the end of the gym, one can see the non-transparent screens in all their particularly imposing manner propped up. Declan can be somewhat heard making a stir within one of the workstations as he prepares to call a person up. He personally feels as if he should wait a while more but he could always call their name again later toward the end. A small communications device is set up locally so that no-one in the gym could miss getting their name called out without being out of the gym a fair distance or an illogical reason. Illogical as any deaf students would be receiving a card. This card would be from a teacher that he would instruct them to deliver. In line with his duties and his straightforward way of working, he simply got on the intercom and stated a name to commence examinations.

"Asari, Ichiko... Asari, Ichiko, please make your way to station 2."

Upon hearing a softer and more consistent stride than most, chiharu opened her eyes and saw Izumi find a spot a few meters away. Which seemed reasonable enough, for she already had neighbours on either side of herself. However, he did not. While she wasn't really in the mood for a conversation, she still wanted to say hello. So, she grabbed her two books, '20,000 leagues under the seas' in both japanese and braille, and made her way over to him.

She makes a quick upward motion with her head as she speaks in a subtly relaxed and quieter tone than usual.
"Hey.. I'm going to be up not too long after you, if you wouldn't mind waiting, we could meet up and do something. After all this, that is."

[OOC: I have to go somewhere. I'll be back by 8 cst. feel free to prioritize the examinations.]

I get this feeling now and then, that I should have planned things better.
I've entered the gym, but don't quite know where to go from here. I forgot to bring anything with me to cure boredom, so I suppose I'll have to settle for thinking to myself. I don't quite consider myself having any friends yet. I've only spoken to Takameshi and... Did I ever get the other kid's name? Either I haven't or it's slipped my mind. Either would imply that I couldn't really say we know each other, and Takameshi said I should go to him if I have some sort of question about the school, and I don't. Having nobody to immediately go to, after a few moments' hesitation I sit down against a randomly selected part of wall beside nobody in particular. Such an act may seem sad to others, but the thought never crosses my mind. I look around for a bit, but the gym's not that interesting to look at, so I return my gaze downward to a spot of the floor that I don't actually take much interest in. I should have have planned this better. I should have found another clipboard and a piece of paper, or my mp3 player or something...
"Oh well." I mumble to myself. I sit against the wall with half-open, uninterested eyes and blank my mind as I wait for time to pass. Time's good at passing; I'll be fine.

"Da~~~mmi~~~t Ha~~~~~~~~~~wke....!"

My voice is more a groan than actual words.

Regardless, I straighten out and sit up.

I open the door in a T-shirt and boxers.

"Where's the snooze button on you..."

I carefully study Tiberius's forehead with one hand on the door handle and another with it's pinky lightly on the corner of my bottom lip.

Eyes half-closed, as usual.

My hair looks....

..slightly more disheveled than normal.

[Sorry, I went to bed early to try and fight off a cold and now this post is kind of out of place]

Ichiko looks up as a voice inquires as to the song she is humming. "Hmm? Oh that's just the FullMetal Alchemist theme tune. It's an anime that aired about fifteen years ago, I find it really cool and-"

"Asari, Ichiko... Asari, Ichiko, please make your way to station 2."

"Ha! I knew I'd be up soon!" Ichiko scrambles to her feet. "See ya in a bit!" She waves to the strange boy, then heads off to station 2 as asked.

"Oh!" Iro says, slapping her forehead with her free palm. "Mihoko! Of course. I was a bit flustered at that point." She says, shaking her head.

"Asari, Ichiko... Asari, Ichiko, please make your way to station 2."

"And the torture begins!" Iro says with a grin.

"Earl Grey, by the way. Still going strong." She says, taking another sip.

Hawke looks Satoshi up and down and lets down a sigh.

"I can tell you'll be a while." He says, "I'll see you there. Hurry up."

Hawke strides down the hall, quietly singing to himself. [Obviously a few octaves lower to account for his Batman voice]

He arrives in the halls and looks around for someone to talk to.

Re: It's only going to be as awkward as you make it.

Post by Nayumi Tachibana on Fri Sep 27, 2013 12:06 am

Nayumi slowly opened the door to the gym, with her fateful sketchbook in her hands, and carefully peeked inside in order to estimate how many people were inside. The answer was quite a bit larger than she had expected. The girl quickly pulled aside, slightly worried that somebody would catch her peeking in and get the wrong idea, then leaned back against the wall and sighed. She was never particularly good with crowds - understandable, considering her isolated and sheltered life, but harmful nevertheless. Since she started going to school, Nayumi had managed to overcome her anxiousness just enough to be able to relax while in class, but seeing every single student in the school in one place and knowing that she would need to stay among them while waiting for her medical exam was a bit too much for her. The changing room was practically empty when she arrived, which made changing into her sports uniform a lot easier, but also gave her false hope that maybe most of the students had decided to skip the exam. Nayumi took a few deep breaths to calm her nerves, squeezing her sketchbook tightly and reminding herself that Ichiko would be inside. That made her feel a bit better - after all, she hadn't seen her best friend ever since she got sick a few weeks ago. Nayumi braced herself, then bravely opened the door and walked straight into the gym.

The moment she entered the crowd, the girl's anxiousness grew tenfold. She immediately started scanning the people around, looking for anyone with blue hair, but couldn't see anyone like that. It took her a full minute to realize that Ichiko wasn't in the gym, or if she was, she was well-hidden. Nayumi panicked. It didn't even occur to her that her best friend might simply be undergoing her own examination at the moment. Her big eyes rolled back to the exit, as if she was contemplating an escape. Ultimately, she simply decided to go in the corner and sit there, as far away from everyone as possible. The girl took a deep breath, then placed her sketchbook in her lap, trying to focus all of her attention on it. After pulling the pencil attached to it, she quickly began sketching the first thing that came to her preoccupied mind.

After about a half-hour, I have my theeth brushed and my hair combed straight.

Coming out of my dorm room, I look different than normal since I usually hang out in my room after getting ready for the day and before setting off.

Now my hair is just veers around my eyes. I also seem to be shivering a little bit.

In my hand is a cup noodle. I don't feel like doing more than going to the kitchen area down the hall for the microwave.

The microwave is set for about two minutes. I don't like waiting for my food and I don't like having it too hot. I also don't mind the slightly more than al dente noodles so it all fits.

.
.

I stop the machine at one second left.

Screw the noise.

...Literally.

I scarf down the moderately-hot soup and put the empty container in the trash before even stepping outside.

And so it begins.

The door opens and the tiny breeze sends me back into an unusual shiver as I make my way toward the gym area.

.
.
.

The doors to the gym open and in comes the shivering boy, hair still damp and only slightly increased in volume from the time I combed it.

I glance at the door as two more people enter, a time each. One seems to have brought something to draw in, though it could just as easily be something to write in. Regardless of its actual purpose, it reminds me of my own inability to remember to bring something with me despite the announcement's recommendation. It also reminds me of my own decision not to put too much thought into the subject. To deliberately not think is a surprisingly difficult task. It'd probably be easier to, rather than rendering my mind blank, find something more pleasant and interesting to fill the space.
I realize that I'm thinking about thinking. Is that a good topic for thought? Then I'd be thinking about thinking about thinking...
I end up staring at the floor in front of me again as I confuse myself.

As soon as Satoshi enters the gym he is greeted by a punch to the arm and a "'Sup!" from Hawke, who has Kuriko standing by him.

"I found yo' bitch." He says, mimicking a gangster voice.

"Oh, Hawke~!" Kuriko says, giggling and blushing a little.

I take the blow with an, "ow!"

"Really? I found him too!"

I reach up and grab Tiberius by the chin and give it a quick, little shake from left to right.

"Hey there, lady."

I give Kuriko a pickup-hug and set her down as quickly as she left the floor.

Post by Ellie Wilson on Sat Sep 28, 2013 2:38 am

About half an hour after the examinations have already began and long after Wade has walked into the gym, Ellie finally reaches the school and enters its main hall. Finding the high school on her own proved to be way more difficult than she had anticipated, and it took a lot of asking around in order to get to it. Now, the little girl's faced with another problem - the main hall is empty, and she has absolutely no idea how to get to the changing rooms, let alone to the actual gym. 'Ah... H-hello? Is anyone here?' she asks cautiously, hoping that someone else who's running late could help her.

His manner of speech was slightly either improved or worsened depending on subjectivity due to his summer studies and walks. He was relatively alone during that time-frame, all of his fault honestly. Yet, he was caught completely unaware mostly due to complete and total habit.

Kai sighed as he waited for his turn. In his head, he debated whether or not he should try to be sociable with the other students around him, but it hardly seemed the time or place to do such a thing. He looked around at the people around him, trying to find a moment to introduce himself.

Izumi gave a sharp and understanding glance. "Crowding." Izumi stated nothing unknown to him and even one who likes being around others understands that there are differences in how this is viewed. Not one to impose he found it a predicament and had just the answer.

"This is solvable. Whilst I heard you got yourself involved with this... "homework club" for whatever reason, if you could find a way to shirk your duties and head away from the gym, I'll text you when it is your turn to be examined. Shan't be too much of an issue." Izumi then smiled somewhat pleased with his idea, hoping it would be of use to her. He was indebted, at least in his own thoughts, to her. Something so simple wouldn't be much of a issue to him. He had little else to focus on, tuning that around him out was as easy as he'd like. Not for her who had no choice in the matter, it would be much better for her not to deal with such obstinance.

"Yeah, that seems like a good idea"
Then just as she was finishing saying that, wades voice can be heard yelling accross the gym, at which point she looks over toward the source for a short time before turning back to face izumi to give her sending words with a soft smile.
"Thanks, I'd really appreciate it if you did that."
She then makes her way accross the gym.
