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 mouth dropped wide as he began to stammer that she came too close. She soon found him gazing at his dream catcher on the ground that was still showing blue. She walked over slowly, knowing how sensitive a lot of people could be (including herself) around new people. She picked up the dream catcher slowly and sat on a nearby chair, not too close to him but not on the other side of the room as if she was stealing the object. She turned it absent-mindedly in her hands as she spoke calmly to the other boy.

"Look," she said quietly and slowly. She was this way just three years ago, before her current family took her under their roof. "I know how stressful today and the beginning of this year is going to be. I do. A few years ago, I was exactly the same as you. Actually, at the beginning of this year I was like you, keep to myself, nervous whenever someone looked at me."

She paused to see if this boy would respond--or how he would respond. She hoped he felt more comfortable, now that she'd used a more soothing and calming approach. If he didn't respond this time, she did not know how he was going to survive in this school.

    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

      • Better approach than beforeEirikur Vilhjalmsson, Tue Dec 17 01:39
        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
        • Progress is goodBrielle Hawkins [Aquila], Tue Dec 17 10:53
          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
          • my name...?Eirikur Vilhjalmsson, Mon Dec 30 19:45
            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
            • Well, then, need a guide?Brielle Hawkins (Aquila), Sat Jan 4 14:25
              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
              • The libraryEirikur Vilhjalmsson, Mon Jan 13 02:18
                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. "U...um...d...does the school have a library?" he asked, voice... more

                  "U...um...d...does 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
