Title: Caught up in my thoughts [open evening]
Post by: Mika Sasaki on March 01, 2013, 10:12:51 pm
Mika sat at the back of the library, curled up in her favorite chair.  Her mind spinning in its own thoughts much as it always seemed to do.  Sighing she leaned her head back, her thoughts jumping from Hunter, to shinji, to her father, to killik.  She looked at her hands, almost as if measuring what they could do.

Geist placed a single hand to his mouth to stifle back a small yawn that had taken over. This of all places seemed like a perfect start to acquire more information. Yet, so far it had seemed he hadn't encountered a single hindrance as of late.  Pushing back a single strand of hair that had fell across his facade, before he finally came to notice he wasn't alone in this current location. "It couldn't hurt to make a few acquaintances," he mentally noted as he slid his hands behind his back and strolled casually in the direction of the stranger. His boots clacking slightly on the floor, partly announcing his presence.

Silently wrapped up in her own thoughts and a book, her thoughts were interrupted.  Looking up from the book in her lap at the sound in of footsteps, steely silver eyes as they normally were when the girl was on guard, fell on the newcomer.  Running her fingers through her hair she kept her gaze on him.

He tilted his head off to one side tilt the stiffen neck joints popped. Still, in his casual stride and made mental notes in his head. Tapping the side of his cheek, murmuring under his breath "Alatus sapian." Finally casting his eyes back up to her face after making his final judgements. "I take it, you're a fellow student then?" Asking his default mellow tone, it was a first step before going into the lengthy dance of introductions.

The sound of his neck cracking made the winged girl stiffen for a moment.  Having always been a sound that had bothered her at the orphanage her wings twitched softly.  As he seemed to be making a judgement, another part of her mind twitched in irradiation.  Sighing lightly she brushed her hair behind her shoulder, "And I am to take it that you are a new student."

Tapping his cheek, partly left in mental quandary and finally offering of a singular nod. "That would be correct, stranger." Adding in turn before offering off his only free hand out to her. Now if he was more familiar with the rest of the student body, it would have to wing it for this juncture.

Hesitating for a moment before before taking his outstretched hand, she shook it softly.  "It's normally customary to offer a name upon meeting someone."  Having grown more accustom to Hunter's chivalry, she felt that the male should offer his name first.

Tilting his head off to the other side, just letting his hand slip back to his side. "Usually, introductory norms can vary from person to person."Tossing a glance away from her while taking a brief pause, eyes refocusing on something off in a far corner. "That would be, Geist.  I  hope I haven't interrupted any important studies." Finally just setting a case he was carrying down onto the floor, in turn squeezing his hand open and close to chase away the feeling pins and needles.

Raising an eyebrow as he looked away, she nodded lightly, "Well welcome to O'raion Geist.   My name is Mika."  Leaning back in her chair she shook her head.  "You didn't interrupt much, mostly lost in my own thoughts.  What brought you to O'raion Geist?"

He still listened in on the conversation, even if I could of he had heard something. Shaking his head as his mind was most likely in a delusional overdrive. "Pleasure to meet you, it'd seem." Adding as he turned his fuller attentions back to her. "Well, as with any institute of higher learning. I came for the information and what knowledge lied within. Though, I hear the sights aren't bad either." Nodding in a pseudo-sagely fashion, then gesturing to her with two fingers outstretched. "What about yourself, then?"

Mika nodded softly, "Well there is certainly a lot to be learned here.  The sights are nice as well, as long as you are careful where you tread."  As he asked her reason, her gaze turned a little distant as she thought back.  "I was sent here by the orphanage.  I was a freak, unwanted by society.  They thought i would be held in check here, while I hoped to find out something about myself, other than being the "freak with the wings"  as the other children dubbed me."

Heavy irked by the acts of those who don't dare arms themselves with knowledge, instead of just embracing ignorance. Clicking his tongue and simply narrowing his eyes already betraying how he felt on the subject. He breathed a heavy sigh, listening in on her story. "Simply people fear what they don't understand, if it diverts from the norms of society it must be deemed deviant and evil." Though, he wouldn't mind having a sample of a feather or two from her additional appendages. "Hm, it would seem I'd have to enlist the help of a body guard or something along those lines from one of the student body, if I must head out further." Even if he had been lightly armed, he'd have to find extra help with divine research. For nothing must get in his way...

Sighing lightly she shrugged.  "I've made peace with their ignorance.  In all honestly I didn't know anything about myself back then.  As far as i knew i was an unknown dropped there, no past no future.  Looking to find more about myself I took coming here as the opportunity to do so."  She smiled softly.  "There are definitely places that are not to be visited alone.  I know i have gotten myself into some challenging situations before, becoming trapped on occasions and needing to find a way out.  It is at least a good plan to be prepared."

He pressed a hand to his forehead, resting his hand into his palm as he let out another sigh. "I'll spare you from my own personal views. I'm always for those who actively seek to better themselves in their ventures." A single bright green eye leered out between two spaced digits. "Still, with anything worth having there will be risks." Pausing, before he actually bring up anything along the lines of cause justifying means.

A light smile settled over the curve of the girls lips.  "You are more than welcome to speak your views.  You are more than entitled to them.  Coming here for me, was to seek more about who, and what I am.  Merely accepting one's place is not my style, I would always rather push forward to find my own way and place."  Pushing the silver hair behind her shoulder she nodded.  Thinking back over her own actions in her endeavors in the past she nodded.  "This is true.  Most things worth achieving or obtaining do not come without some amount of risk."

Sliding his own hand upwards to subconsciously push up his own silvery hair back. "The hunt for knowledge is the highest calling, is the first and foremost importance to myself. To me, whose who bath in the,"Pausing briefly, to bring up the gesture of air quoting," metaphorical pits ignorance is to me on the level of a sin. For lack of a better word."  He poured out his feelings on the matter, after she had prompted him to do so. It was there to take it as she whatever manner she picked.  Picking up a foot and swiftly putting it down onto the metallic case he had brought with him. "Still, I'm not for changing and forcing my views onto others." Adding under his breath with small side glance,"Far too much clean up afterwards involved."

Mika nodded softly taking in his opinions as they were offered, while an eyebrow arched at the last comment.  A moment was taken to reflect before she responded.  "I can understand disdain for those who choose not to push forward in the quest for knowledge.  As I understand the desire to not force views.  Everyone chooses their own path, no matter the direction that it takes them."

He took a few steps to lean up against a nearby book shelf, offering of a small huff. "Thus there is the impasse. Can't, shouldn't..." Simply shaking his head, I wouldn't wish to wish to evoke an enlightenment at the cost of genocide. "This place will change, every step will mark something new. You're welcome to come along if you so wish." He did have plans, some help along the way would aid the quest.

Mika nodded softly, "This is true."  She sighed running her hand through her hair.  Tilting her head softly she nodded.  "Sure I wouldn't mind.  I'm up for continuing down the path to enlightenment as I have been doing some soul searching.  I am always looking to better understand myself and the world."

He nodded once more, pushing his frame off of the bookshelf and taking a few steps closer to her. Offering up a single hand to her with a coy half-smile, "Well, it seems I'll soon be have my hands full with this place." Mentally counting off with fingers as he listed them,"There will be the classes that I'll be taking along with the one I'll be partly teaching. The part time job, also the club..." He ended up trailing off on that last note, taking a brief second to reflect on how much relevance the group has on this event. "I extend an invitation to that, the Book Club is always looking for new members." Half hoping he wasn't being too forward with this.

Taking the offered hand Mika smiled softly.  Nodding lightly, "That certainly sounds like a full schedule.  I shall need to readjust to my schedule as well."  She sighed lightly.  It had been a while, her escapades and watching her life explode in front of her before trying to tape it back together had left her spending a lot of time in thought.  At the offer to the club she nodded.  "That sounds like a club that would fit my interests for sure."

It seemed like coming to this place was a rather serendipitous choice at that. Rather, the wheels were turning, slowly but still turning.  Tapping his cheek with a single finger of his free hand, "There is a little paper work, but that is to be expected with anything now a days." Sliding his hand up higher to readjust his barret ever-so-slightly, having felt something off balance to him.  "So, are you living on or off the academy's grounds?" It couldn't hurt to have another reason to explore the confines of this island or at least have an alibi if things would turn sour.

Tucking a lock of hair behind her ear Mika nodded quietly. "I used to live on campus, I think i still have a dorm room in my name.  However I have changing my living arraignments and now live off campus."
