Ryan Stark
A Blue Start [Emily Wiggins]
Sun Apr 20, 2014 14:17

Ryan was late for orientation. He didn’t see the point of even going, since his sister had gone the previous year. What was the point in having a family member go then go yourself? Of course, he did regret it now. He was one of the Cetus students now and his sister was Lyra. He shrugged it off like it didn’t matter, but he didn’t have any friends here. He didn’t know anyone. He shifted uncomfortably. How was he going to survive the first ten minutes of the feast without a friend?

He’d spent all his time outside until he had to get ready to come to the school. He flinched as his sun burn rubbed against his robes.He sat down at the bonfire, trying to decide what he wanted to have. Shrugging, he decided that a baloney sandwich would be good. He could always order more and have more food! He grinned as he ordered specifically what he wanted—a baloney sandwich on white bread with tomatoes, lattice, mayonnaise, and mustered. As the food appeared his grin seemed to grow bigger as he dug into it. He glanced around, watching others of the house break off into conversation.

Suddenly feeling alone that he didn't have any friends, his grin disappeared as he picked at his food. It had sounded good at the time, but he suddenly wasn't hungry.

He rolled his eyes, trying to get rid of his suddenly glum mood. I’ll join a conversation later. After food. he thought and continued to eat. Shortly after the thought crossed his mind he heard foot steps behind him.
