I'm in a similar boat
Tue Dec 10, 2013 16:42

The weirdest things had taken getting used to at RMI. Completely unfazed by things like moving portraits and an entire underground forest, Noah had instead been forced to adjust to things like sharing a room and being in charge of eating his own vegetables. After an entire week of eating nothing green at all (unless you counted a lime jellybean he'd had on accident, which Noah would personally consider more of a yellow-green than green-green), he'd felt so sick to his stomach that he'd gone to the nurse. At that point, it had been suggested to him in no uncertain terms that he should eat something more healthy for him than bacon mac'n'cheese. It was weird. Also weird but really cool was that he could order food from his plate.

That meant he could have bacon with everything.

The fair-haired first year had quickly discerned that while most things tasted much better with bacon, eating it for every meal made him sick of the taste. And it was with that dilemma in mind that Noah was staring perplexedly at his plate, trying to figure out what vegetable he could order so it didn't taste gross. He'd taken a few moments to look around for ideas every so often, but was still largely strapped for ideas that didn't involve chocolate, lemons, or bacon. And while Noah thought that chocolate was almost as good as bacon, he was also pretty sure that chocolate on carrots was literally the nastiest thing ever.

The fourth or fifth time that Noah looked up and around for inspiration, he realized that the same person had been standing off to the side for the entire time Noah had been trying to eat. There was also an unusual amount of stuff in front of the person, and as Noah looked closer, blue eyes examining the situation intensely, he realized it was another boy (probably his age).

Noah scratched his head, just behind his right ear.

"Hey," he called over in the direction of the boy - who actually wasn't standing too far away. "do you want to eat with me?" Noah scooted to the side, making room for the other boy.

    Trembling, Eirkur stood off to one side of the diner. His hands gripped a black dreamcatcher tightly as his eyes darted about, petrified. Eirikur Vilhjalmsson was a new student to the RMI school,... more

          Brielle sat in the Finer Diner, watching the boy who always seemed to be there at the same time as she. As a deep breath escaped her lungs and she went to look at the moving scenery of the dining... more
          • Too closeEirikur Vilhjalmsson, Sun Dec 15 22:36
            Uttering a small strange sound, Eirikur jumped back from her hand, tripping over one of his bags and crashing to the floor on his back. Practically crab-walking away as he scooted back, he hit the... more

              Brielle jumped back quickly and went to hide, but to no prevail; there was nowhere to hide. The boy shrank down into himself, tucking his knees to his chest and placing his forehead on his knees. Her ... more

                Her change in approach was noted, and though Eirikur was still having a panic attack he forced himself to look at her. "It's not just looking." he mumbled. "People in general I don't like being... more

                  Brielle smiled a little grin as the boy looked up at her. He still did not meet her eyes, but baby steps were good for now. "Wh...What does the blue color mean?" he stammered as he probably... more

                    He listened to her, though he didn't look at her. He was definitely not a leader...but...he truly was a quiet shy loner. Well, House Cetus really did fit him Eirikur had to admit. He glanced sideways ... more

                      The boy remained without a name and kept his eyes fluttering anywhere except for Brielle. "Oh... um... I... I... I'm... Eirikur..." he stammered nervously. She smiled at the response; even though it... more

                        Eirikur felt his face flush red at her comment about his name. Shyly scuffing the floor with his foot as he thought about her question. " the school have a library?" he asked, voice... more

                          " the school have a library?" Brielle smiled as the shy boy asked the question. Everyone seemed to like the library on their first day of school here; it's where she had gone first,... more
