Trying to make things less awkward...

While Ryder was waiting for Zevalyn to respond to him, Jen seemed ecstatic about his reply and began asking questions about skating. Zevalyn raised her eyebrows at him, which left Ryder in the awkward positon of whether to pursue an answer to the question he directed at Zevalyn, or to talk to Jen about his skateboard. He decided to do a bit of both.

Ryder smirked at Jen a bit and replied, “Of course I skate.” He said it as though anyone who doesn’t skate is simply ridiculous, but his smirk implied that he was also using humor. “I brought my board with me. It is with my things in my dorm room. I am going to guess that you didn’t bring yours since you said you are going to miss it. You can always use mine sometime if you want.” Ryder couldn’t imagine living at school without his skateboard. He was always using it at home when he went out to meet Lexi or some of their mutual friends. He wondered why Jen did not bring her skateboard with her, but he figured that is something he could find out later. Instead he decided to try to find a way to include Zevalyn in the conversation, and after a moment he thought he knew how.

He smiled at Jen and turned back to Zevalyn to ask a question. “What about you? Have you ever tried skating? If you haven’t, it’s cool. Maybe I can show you a few pointers if you are interested in learning.” This was Ryder’s attempt at still including Zevalyn in the conversation while staying on the topic Jen was enthusiastic about, and he hoped it didn’t backfire. It appeared Jen was not even paying attention to what Zevalyn was saying, but Ryder was still interested in whether or not she was in their year.

          After the earlier brush off and obvious interest both her Housemates had in skate boarding, she was uncertain whether or not declining Ryder's offer to teach her would result in being instantly... more
