Kir McLeod
The morning after (tag Sawyer)
Sun Oct 9, 2016 07:16

Kir was about ready to drop. He’d fallen asleep for a little bit on the wagon, the gentle motion making it almost inevitable, but it wasn’t the most restful sleep, and it had been a long, exciting, exhausting day. Coupled with that was a belly full of food and his body feeling it was several hours later than the clocks here claimed it was…

The directions to the common room more or less passed him by. The jig was something he was confident he could get right if someone showed it to him when his eyes were actually open… He felt very bad that he might actually have nodded off when Professor Xavier was speaking.

At the end of the speech, he dragged himself up to his dorm room. It was very tempting to just lie down on the inviting-looking bed. Just for ‘a second.’ But Kir knew he would fall asleep straight away. He fumbled through his trunk, finding his pyjamas. They were tartan - not the family one, but just whatever the department store in Boston had had. They’d been a gift from his aunt, a bit of a joke one, but he really liked them. They were nice pyjamas. They were soft. And tonight they were unco-operative, as he struggled with the buttons and accidentally put both legs down the same… what was one side of a trouser called? Was it a trouser? After all, they were a pair of trousers… He gave his teeth a quick brush and fell into bed, a brief thought about his absent room-mate flitting through his mind as he did so…

In the morning, he awoke to find that the other boy had, at some point, come up and was asleep in the bed opposite. Kir tried to wriggle quietly, getting his book out. Luckily it was easy to find as he’d had it out on the wagon ride. He settled back in bed, trying to to turn the pages softly until the other boy woke up.

“Hi,” Kir smiled, when his room-mate seemed to be with him. “I’m sorry we didn’t really meet last night. I just completely crashed out after the feast. I’m Kir.”

OOC - sorry not to reply to your thread and to give you more work to do, but I had the idea in my head that Kir was just pass-out tired and it wouldn’t budge, even though RP normally ignores such boring practicalities in favour of having a chat. I’m also assuming that they arrive on a Saturday or something, so that the kids don’t have classes their very first day, and therefore they have a little time to chat.

                “Oh, definitely,” Sawyer reassured the other boy to the green dish. It was definitely worth trying in his opinion. Though, he was sure there would be lots of other things to try as well. Being a... more

                Ayla laughed at the description Sawyer gave her of the ballet he’d seen. It seemed pretty accurate, honestly. It was a lot of hard work, and maybe that way why Ayla hadn’t stuck with it, she had... more
