PostSubject: A Relaxing Stroll [Closed]   Thu Apr 10, 2014 9:27 pm

[Week 16 Thursday]

Alone, Lí Cadmus slowly walks through one of Vale's parks, taking the time to enjoy the preserved beauty of nature within the relatively safe confines of the city boundaries. A light breeze blows through the air, keeping the various scents of vegetation in the park fresh. Despite the serene atmosphere, however, he stays on high alert, not willing to allow a repeat of the incident almost seven weeks ago, despite that having been planned. 'It's over and done with,' he thinks, mentally berating himself for his paranoia. "I came here to relax..." he says, addressing no one in particular. "Much as I like the atmosphere, though, it's not helping..." his voice picks up a pleading tone by the end of it.

Throughout the park, the small crowds and groups of people keep moving on with their various activities.

Isabelle sat with her eyes closed and head leaning back on a somewhat plain park bench, which was conveniently placed under the shade of a tree.  She too had come here to clear her thoughts, as it seemed to be a nice place to do so.  Pleasant atmosphere, not too crowded, and certainly less chaotic than Beacon seemed to be every day.  Of course, her momentary peace was interrupted as she picked up a faint voice coming from the left, causing her faunus ears to twitch and turn slightly.  Opening her eyes, she spotted another person walking by that seemed to be talking to nobody.  Instead of taking time away from the person and from herself, she closed her eyes, remaining silent.

After a few seconds, Lí hangs his head, and continues moving. Idly, he notes a mild discomfort in his feet, having been standing for much of the day, and starts looking for a nearby bench to have a seat. A moment later, he catches sight of one up ahead on his right, occupied by someone who appears to be a young Faunus woman wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt and a pair of denim shorts. As he approaches, he notes that she exhibits feline traits, evidenced by the ears on top of her head, as well as the tail lying across the bench seat next to her. When he comes up to the bench, Lí looks at her, and gently asks, "Uh... Excuse me... Um... Would you mind if I...uh... Mind if I take a seat here?" in a way so as to disturb the peace as little as possible.

Opening her eyes again and blinking a few times as she heard the voice again, Isabelle turned her head to where it was coming from.  Someone who appeared to be a human, and a female.  A somewhat boyish one at that.

After a few moments of silence and processing what he had asked, she quickly spoke up.  "Oh, uh, sure.  I don't mind."  While she hadn't been expecting company, there was no reason to be rude to them and say no.  She didn't, however, realize that her tail was occupying the seat.

In response to the woman's assent, Lí smiles and nods, then quietly adds a soft thanks as he begins removing Fenghuang's harness from his back. "Should probably look into a smaller weapon..." he mutters, a slightly wistful tone entering his voice as he starts pondering possibilities.

Setting Fenghuang point-down in its harness and leaning it against the bench, Lí then turns and takes his seat. For a few seconds, he reclines, much like the girl next to him, but he soon feels an uncommon drive to try starting a conversation. Without looking over, he muses, "Pleasant atmosphere, isn't it? Temperature's just right to have that breeze give a pleasant chill when it picks up...", trailing off in invitation for his new companion to join in.

As he took his seat, Isabelle's eyes opened wide as she realized that he was sitting directly on her tail.  Being a cat faunus and whatnot, her tail was fairly sensitive, causing her to squirm only slightly, probably unnoticeable.  It didn't hurt, per say, but it was less than comfortable.  Clearing her throat, she decided to ignore it for now.  "Yes, definitely.  Beacon is always either too loud, or too quiet.  If that makes any sense.  Are you a student there as well?"  It seemed that most of the teenagers in this area were either Beacon students or tourists, this girl was probably no exception.  It was usually a good enough question for initiating conversation, at least.

After taking his seat, and opening conversation, Lí notices a distinct unevenness beneath him, it's presence having been overshadowed by the relief of getting off his feet. A second later, he realizes the source of the feeling he's getting, and quickly jumps off the bench and back onto his feet, whirling about to face the girl he'd just accidentally sat on. "I'msosorryaboutthat, Ididn'tmeantositonyourtail...!" he exclaims, mouth running faster than his mind as he starts flushing out of mortified embarrassment. After a few seconds, he asks, "Are you all right?" wanting to be sure that he hadn't inadvertently hurt her by his negligence.

"N-No, don't worry about it!  I'm fine!"  Isabelle quickly shook her head as she rambled.  It was probably her own fault for not watching her own tail, or at least for not telling him sooner that he had sat on it.  Sighing, she brought her hand to her face in attempt to hide her own embarrassment.  "Really, I'm okay.  Don't blame yourself."

"I... I should've -- I should've been paying more attention..." Lí stammers insistently, berating himself for being so rude. "I'm really sorry about that, though. Any way I could make it up to you?" he asks, shrinking slightly out of embarrassment about the whole situation. The entire time, he remains a bright red, further showcasing his mortification.

"You don't have to apologize, really.  It was my own fault as well, I need to watch my tail more often."  Grabbing her tail, Isabelle placed it in her own lap, letting it rest there.  "If you want to, you can take a seat again.  We can forget about this, and start over."  She extended a single hand and smiled, hoping that he would at least shake it.

Lí bows his head, a smile small forming as the woman's words ease his worries away, at least for the time being. "Thank you," he says, bowing his head further as he reaches out to grasp her hand firmly in greeting. A moment later, he looks back up at her eyes, noticing how they're only a few shades darker than his own. "I suppose I should introduce myself, then. I'm Lí."

"Nice to meet you, Lí.  I'm Isabelle."  She shook his hand, smiling.  "You can sit, I won't bite.  Oh, right, and back to what I asked earlier.  Are you a student at Beacon?  I don't believe I've seen you before.  Perhaps I have, I'm not too sure.  My mind has been all over the place lately."

"Isabelle," he says, as if testing her name and how it sounds issuing from his mouth, "a pleasure to meet you." He then takes his seat once more, looking to be sure he wouldn't accidentally sit on her tail again. To carry on with conversation, he turns to face her, bringing a leg up to rest sideways on the bench in front of him. "In answer to your question, I am indeed a student at Beacon. Third year. And you?"

Isabelle looked down at her lap, smiling as she fiddled with her tail and it's fur.  "I'm a first year.  It's been an...  Interesting experience so far, to say the least.  Though, I'm sure that's more relevant to yourself, considering that you've been in the school for a years now."

"So far, this year has been my most interesting," Lí says, a slightly bitter smile in place as he thinks back on events. As he goes over one particular set of memories, though, he slightly winces, bringing a hand up to his chest, over the scar he now had from the Cysoph incident. "For better or worse."

"Well, that's understandable.  My year so far hasn't been too great, it's had it's ups and downs.  I've made some friends, that's a first.  And I've made enemies, so it kind of cancels out."  Isabelle shook her head, frowning slightly.  "I've definitely learned more here than anywhere else, so that's a plus."

"Beacon really is something else..." Lí muses, reclining slightly to sit more comfortably. "And making friends is always more of a positive than making enemies is a negative, I like to think," he says, looking to Isabelle with a slightly hopeful expression, odd as it may seem.

"I hope so.  I've kind of felt a bit more paranoid ever since I stopped hiding the fact that I'm faunus, because I know people stare at me for it..."  Isabelle stopped herself and sighed.  "I'm probably over-thinking it, but I've dealt with a few racists already.  It's not really my definition of a good time."

Lí takes in what the girl next to him says, and nods in agreement with her words. "While I can't really say I understand, I can't imagine being victim to such prejudice as being pleasant in any way." He turns his head back to face forward, closing his eyes to enjoy the serenity of the atmosphere, troubling as the present conversation matter may be. "I think it has more to do with people making assumptions without knowing, and being afraid, to be honest."

Isabelle shrugged.  "Well, most racists I've met don't seem very afraid.  It's usually the other way around."  She waved a hand in the air, as if to push the topic away.  "Anyway, enough of that.  Let's move on to something less depressing.  Not really an interesting topic either way."

"Well, that last point is debatable, but it is a rather unpleasant topic, overall," the effeminate man concedes, nodding in agreement with her point. For a few seconds, he looks around, trying to think of a suitable topic for conversation, only to end up asking, "So, what is it that brings you out here, Isabelle?"

"Well, if I feel like relaxing, I usually go to my dorm or the Arena, as it's usually deserted there.  Today, two of my roommates were busy in the dorm, and there were a couple people sparring in the Arena, so neither would really be quiet enough for me to enjoy myself."  Isabelle rested her hands on the back of her head, leaning back a bit.  "It's not exactly quiet here, but the nature and all of that helps distract me from things."

"I'm going to assume that that was innuendo, in reference to your roommates...?" Lí says, his voice picking up a questioning tone at the end of the sentence. A second later, however, he turns away and waves his hand through the air, dismissing the question by saying, "Never mind, I don't need to know."

Leaning back in his seat, though, he idly comments, "It is nice here," referring to the general ambiance of the area. "I'm finding your company to be preferable to solitude, though."

Despite him not seeming to be curious anymore, Isabelle answered anyway. "Yeah, that's something they do kind of often. Not exactly a topic I know much about, either way. I'd rather not disturb them."

Leaning back against the bench again, she nodded. "I'm used to being alone, so it doesn't bother me as much. But company can be nice, when not irritating."

"I used to prefer being alone," Lí says, starting as if he's telling her some grand secret. "For the most part, I think I still do." He closes his eyes, and very slightly shivers before continuing. "Sorry, I don't mean to dump all my problems on you."
