Making up for lost time
Sun Oct 16, 2016 01:11

Sawyer seemed chirpy and friendly, no mean feat given that he’d literally just woken up, and Kir was forced to smile as his room-mate chattered away.

“Nice to meet you. Yeah, the whole day was really cool but the feast was definitely the best. At least I know one good thing about school - I don’t think I’ll be hungry whilst I’m here! I kind of can’t wait for dinner time already. I mean, I know they won’t put all that on every night but everything I tried was just delicious. My favourite was the beef pie. How about you?” He groaned slightly at the mention of the jig, although his mood wasn’t really dampened.

“My eyes were practically closing by the time we got here. I have no idea what the steps even are! Do you remember? If not, I’m sure we could get one of the prefects or someone to show us.” He was sure people took time to learn it every year, and was sure they’d solve the problem easily enough.

“Oh. Well. I’m sure I’ll meet her soon enough,” he smiled, when Sawyer mentioned meeting a girl from their house. He did regret it a bit. It wasn’t nice feeling like everyone else was further on in making friends than him. He wasn’t even sure he’d really connected with the people he’d spoken to at the feast or orientation, and now Sawyer seemed to count this girl amongst his friends already. But they were only a day into term, he tried to tell himself. Surely it couldn’t be too bad already...

“So… Where are you from? And what’s your family like? I mean, like.. You have any brothers or sisters? What do your folks do?” he elaborated. If he wanted friends, then the best thing to do seemed to be to try to make up lost ground now.

        “Oh, there was this green stuff that was pretty good. I forget what it was called, but it was amazing.” He really wished that he had remembered, but he figured that he had an entire year to find out... more

          “You’ll have to point that out to me next time you see it,” he smiled, as Sawyer said he’d eaten some ‘green stuff.’ As descriptions went, he didn’t think it was an especially solid basis off which... more

            “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

              “That’s really good,” Kir smiled, when Sawyer said his family did charity stuff like food banks. “The world needs as many people as possible who are willing to help each other out. “Mostly… I mean,... more
