Mornings are hard

Leon sat at the table playing with some of his food. Honestly, this year wasn’t shaping up to the best he ever had. His mom may have been right. Maybe she was the only one who truly understood him. She, after all, was the one who taught him until he got here. She knew the struggles of day to day life for him outside in the real world. She had sheltered the 11 year old, and made him hide himself from his own family.

Leon hadn’t done so well with making friends this year, though if he told his mom this, she would pull him out of RMI faster than she did with his grade school. The funny thing was, even though he had basically no one to really connect with, he liked it here. Not hiding who he was, being accepted, somewhat, despite his flaws. Heck, the skinny blonde could even say he got cast in a musical.

As he sit there thinking, playing with his scrambled eggs, and watching those around him be greeted by their friends, he decided that mornings where the hardest. Normally he would try to skip as many meals as possible because no one really talked to him. It was hard to sit there and just be quite, so he sighed deeply and began to sing some of “Little Shop” mostly under his breath, as he began to stare out at the walls of the room. His voice got louder as he began to drift into his own world.

When someone caught his attention, he snapped back into reality.
