Name: Shima Masaru
Masaru had gotten up early, as usual, and rushed his way to class. He hated public transportation, it made him nervous, and then he'd freak out and people got upset, and the last time he had tried it, he'd been kicked off the train less than halfway to his destination. Instead he just walked, he got up insanely early, and he walked. The good thing about it, was that no one was up that early, no one was around to bother him. He liked it when no one bothered him. Today had been no different, he got up, and went to class, eating his breakfast as he walked. As usual, he showed up almost half an hour early for class. The teacher had been there when he showed up, so Masaru had gotten to take his seat and get his notes out. Sometimes the teacher left, locking the door, but they had an understanding. Masaru didn't fuck with anything, and he got to sit there and not get bothered. It worked great for him. He already had his books out when class started, and dodging the morning paper ball was second nature now. But it seemed life had another way to mess with his routine. A new student in class. Now? Really? How do you expect to make up that kind of work? he wondered, they'd have to work harder than he did! Then he looked up. She's pretty... he thought, before going back to his notes.
He sat at the very front of the class, closest to the windows, and all around him was a space of at least one empty desk, most times more. No one wanted to sit near the guy that got hit with things when the douchebags were bored. And then suddenly, someone was sitting next to that guy. "What?" Masaru was genuinely shocked, why the hell was someone sitting next to him? And why was she so pretty? He didn't get it, but he figured she was probably fucking with him. Even the new girl is in on it... he thought, sighing mentally as he checked his page numbers. It took him only an instant to recover from his initial reaction, "Oh, yeah, we're on page five-twenty-seven... Umm... I dunno what you need help with, it's pretty basic stuff, we just started the new unit..." he said quietly. He really wanted to pay attention, since class would be starting any moment, and he needed to get these notes. At the same time, if this was not people messing with him, if this girl was genuinely interested in his help, he didn't want to begrudge her that, a friend or two might be nice once in a while. He supposed she'd figure out why the no-man's-land was there by the end of class, though, and then she would find someone else to help her. I can hope, though, can't I? he figured he could, but then realized he should probably stop before all the disappointment got to him and he got depressed and couldn't keep up with his classes...
