Blueberry Jam is my favorite. Never had paranoia before.

Dakota took a while to answer his question about liking Uncle Riley’s movies. When he responded with not liking movies DJ nodded. In his mind, he labeled Dakota as wizard born and now knew not to ask about muggle things with him. DJ always felt bad for the kids raised in either world instead of both like he had. Muggleborn kids missed on everything cool magical and Wizarding Kids missed out on video games and movies. DJ knew a lot of both worlds because dad was a Muggleborn and mom was a half-blood.

“Some movies are great. I prefer action ones compared to Uncle Riley’s romantic comedies and musicals but I can see how they wouldn’t be everyone's cup of tea.” DJ responded before tacking on. “He’s in a lot of movies where he’s the male romantic lead to a female one. Which is super odd because he’s married to a guy.”

DJ was about to ask about Dakota’s hobbies to keep the conversation flowing but he jumped almost out of his seat. DJ looked around and didn’t see too much going on that would scare someone that badly. The other boy began to shake and DJ was immediately worried. He had seen Uncle Seb get panic attacks before due to worry and he had seen plenty of soldiers with PTSD induced panic attacks and this kid looked on the verge of one.

Dakota apologized and the stated some girl hates him while gesturing over her shoulder. DJ glanced the way Dakota had indicated. DJ frowned at the empty table and thought about how Dad had said with PTSD people saw things that weren’t really there. DJ knew anyone could get it and he wouldn’t be surprised if a kid his age had it. Plenty of horrible things happened to kids. Not all came from loving families, not all were accepted because of their sexuality or gender, some just had a hell of a time with bullies and it sounded like Dakota may be one of those with a bully issue. “It’s cool.” He said waving off the apology.

“Are you okay? Do you need to go to the nurse? Or maybe the counselor?” DJ had been at RMI to know the counselor Tennent was a stand-up dude and lots of students saw him. He figured Dakota would probably have seen him if he really did have PTSD.

“I could walk you to your house to make sure whoever she is doesn’t corner you when you are done eating if you don’t want to go see anyone.” He offered not really wanting to leave Dakota alone. Mom and Dad hadn’t raised a wuss and DJ was always one to take a big brother role.

  • Paranoia is more my jam - Dakota, Sat Nov 17 11:09
    “Oh uh,” now Dade felt awkward. He hadn’t seen very many Muggle movies, outside of what Professor Blair sometimes showed in Cultural Studies and whatever abomination Kit managed to sit them all down... more

      • It's a complex flavor - Dakota, Sat Dec 8 09:47
        When DJ initially suggested that Dade go to the nurse or the counselor, his temper flared. Of course he didn’t want to go to the nurse or the counselor. How would that help with Claudia following him ... more
        • Sounds like it would be - DJ, Sat Dec 8 21:27
          DJ frowned when Dakota stated that the girl who was following him was in his house. That kind of sucked. Didn’t the professors step in? At Wallowa that shit would’ve been shut down immediately.... more
          • A sound observation - Dakota, Sat Dec 8 22:10
            It appeared that DJ’s uncles had gone to RMI, and DJ sure was okay about talking about his uncles being - well, being his uncles. It was one thing when Drew talked about his dad and Professor... more
            • Observations are the best - DJ, Sun Dec 9 10:31
              Dakota was blushing when he stated that his ex-best-friend was in Draco. DJ wondered why. He wasn't going to ask after all it was rude. Perhaps the friend had helped the person stalking them. Dakota... more
              • No, you're the best - Dakota, Mon Dec 10 11:05
                Dakota wanted to run away very fast but not in the usual way she wanted to run away very fast, so she supposed that was probably an improvement. If only Claudia wasn’t there. Why was Claudia there?... more
