"Well...It's short term memory I mostly have a problem with, and yeah...it does suck."
After a pause Mizo looked up, with a look of slight confusion on his face
"Weird...I just had the strangest feeling of deja-vu."

Once Satoshi laughs, an idea strikes Hawke.

Let's mess with Mizo's head a little bit...

"That must derail life on a day-to-day basis... right?" Hawke asks, feigning concern, knowing full well that memory problems wreaks pure chaos into his life on an hourly basis. Forgotten homework, meals, names, important dates... and expecting somebody with memory problems to remember to take three different experimental drugs that change constantly based on his doctor's whims and a bunch of painkillers every day is just asking for trouble.

Oblivious to Hawkes game, Mizo answered his feigned concern
"Yeah..it does. I've forgotten my homework several times, and it makes it a pain to remember names sometimes. If it weren't for the fact that my medication is practically looking me in the face when I get up in the morning I'm sure I'd forget that sometimes too.'

I have to hide a smile.

Hawke, you are awesome.

"Medication for memory?" Hawke asks, "What kind are they?"

"Oh, the medications aren't for my memory." was all he said in reply.

I calm myself and carefully eye Tiberius and take a noisy sip from my tea.

Enough. Would not be a good idea to push for information for the sake of a joke.

Uh oh.

Without acknowledging Satoshi, Hawke decides to back off, best not alienate Mizo.

"I see." He says flatly.

After a moment of what felt to Mizo like an awkward silence, he suddenly remembered something.
"Oh, yeah." he said, partly to himself, and partly out loud. Reaching into his bag he said
"I just remembered"
He produced a small red tin barely a quarter inch thick. Mizo opened it up and produced a small paper pouch, the kind that keep a tea bag.
"Here, you might like this one better." he said handing the bag to Hawke. The paper wrapper read "Twinnings Lady Grey Premium Blend"
"I always keep some tea bags with me...just in case."

My silence, once again, returns to an inconspicuous, quiet, peaceful silence.

My smirk returns as I take a finishing sip from my tea and go to refill my cup half-way.

"Well that was just coincidence, I keep a few just in case I want some tea." Mizo said.
"Before I came to Yamaku I'd gotten used to spending a lot of time alone and I usually took a thermos of hot water and some tea bags with me where ever I went."

"It's strange but I wouldn't call it unwise." 

I crack my grin again and toss something metallic on the table.

"It isn't normal to carry around a drum key but I do anyway."

My eyes close underneath my bangs.

"You wouldn't know how useful it is to do that until you take up percussion instruments and carry one around."

"I'd agree with that. You never know, right?" Mizo said as he wrote something on the papers he'd been working on.
"It was kind of weird though. Back then it was almost as if I thought some one might come join me, even though I knew that'd never happen." he added, still never looking up from his homework.

Uh oh.

His whole life Hawke had never been without friends, and wasn't ready to get into a discussion about how lonely Mizo was at his old school. The concept of being too shy to go make friends was an alien one to Hawke, he'd always had people around him from a young age on account of his father's success, and as such had better social skills than the majority of his peers. Even when he arrived at Yamaku, he'd made friends pretty damn quickly; in fact he managed to get a sizable chunk of them drunk on his first night.

He reaches down to his cup of tea and simply remains a silent watcher, keen to avoid saying anything on the subject of a lack of friends rather than offend Mizo.

Wait.... me being silent will make it awkward.

"Uhhh..." Hawke's hand with the cup hovers a couple of centimeters away from his mouth, muffling the sound of his voice. "I'll drink tea with you if you ever want a tea-buddy." He says quickly, then busily occupies himself with drinking tea and staring at the floor with wide eyes, hoping to God that Mizo wouldn't pick up on such a strange idea.

Mizo stopped writing but didn't look up at first from his home work. Ever since he'd come to Yamaku he'd tried to make friends, but so far he was still having trouble with that. Sure he'd gotten to know a few people but still didn't know anyone really all that well. Now here was Hawke making an effort, and trying to be not too obvious about it. Mizo looked up from his home work and said
"Sure, That sound like good idea to me."

Hawke smiles in relief when his idea is taken into Mizo's stride, and the bizarre offer wasn't laughed off.

"I often come in here for a midday pick-me-up" Hake says in between sips of tea, which was steadily growing on him. Although he wouldn't tell anyone that, can't have the whole school knowing that Hawke drank anything less than the manliest of tea, "specifically after Shisen-sensei's lessons... urgh.." He shudders at the memory.

[You only got Yuuji drunk on the first night. Satoshi had a drink or two and Christ stayed abstinent.]

The similar background doesn't sit in my head well.

It terrorizes my head, unlocking the cells of undesirable memories of the past and letting them prison riot.

Instead of saying anything for a bit, I stare at the wall to the right of me like a foreign infantry vet with PTSD.

So, Mizo has a similar past to me...all he lacks is the confidence that was given to me through mental endurance...

"Good to know" Mizo said to Hawke.
As he turned back to his homework he caught Veach sort of staring at the wall. Taking a quick glance with without turning his head, Mizo tried to see if there was something interesting there. Unable to notice anything significant Mizo asked
"Uhhh...Veach...you alright?"

*Pop!*

I blink and slingshot my glance to Takameshi.

"What?-Y-oh-oh yeah."

"Yeah-I'm alright."

Get it together, dude, y'losin' it.

I down the rest of my tea like it was nothing.

My cool demeanor returns as I stand.

A deep, quick sigh gusts through the air.

"I'm out of here. Thanks for the company."

I look over to Tiberius.

"And remember, doors are there so we don't need to bust through barriers to get to other rooms."

With that, I pick up my bag.

As Satoshi began to leave the room Mizo simply replied
"That may be true, but you gotta admit...it sure helped to make the day a little more interesting, even if only a little. Wouldn't you agree?"

Hawke notices Satoshi staring at the wall, and a pit of worry opens in his stomach. The absence of his trademark grin and attentiveness towards the conversation was strange, Hawke knew that Satoshi would usually be listening and analyzing anything anybody said as they said it. When the boy makes a quick getaway, Hawke knows something is up.

"I have to be off too." Hawke says with a deadpan tone, then gets up and makes his way to the door, intending to follow Satoshi and confront him.

"Alright, see you later then. I'm gonna stay here finish this up." Mizo said as he motioned to his papers before he turned his attention back to his homework. As he continued scribbling answers on the page he thought to himself "Alone again, but...I'm used to by now. At least it makes it easier to finish my homework."
