"...it really isn't all that special." Maia responded to his overly flamboyant reaction to her name. "It's smack dab in the middle of 'really popular' and 'super exotic'. It's really just ordinary."
As he leaned onto the desk, continuing on, Maia gave her eyes a small roll as she sighed lightly. "I wouldn't say it's the math that's bothering me per se...and while you haven't quite made it that far yet, I must say, you're being fantastically chatty, considering you come to a study hall, where I assume you had meant to study."
When he slid the numbers over to her, she stuck her tongue in her cheek, refusing to either accept nor reject it. "And that would be...?" As the teacher snapped at them, her eyes flicked up, casting a wary glance at the slightly jumpy man. "Well now, we wouldn't want to get in trouble, would we?" She asked Aden in a low sarcastic voice, with a tone that left it ambiguous as to whether she was sharing a joke, or turning Aden away. Without clarification, she turned her seat forward again, leaning over her books.
"Sorry sir, it won't happen again." She apologized louder, picking her pencil back up. Tucking a stray lock of hair behind her ear, she grew distracted by a low, soft hum, with an incredibly deep resonance that was far too noticeable for a sound so quiet. Glancing up, she looked around cautiously, trying to determine where it was coming from, and found the other girl in the hall seemingly doing the same.
