Cat Up a Tree [CLOSED]  
Character(s): Kyo Sohma
Content: Kyo is bored and shy
Setting: Outside in a courtyard
Time: about 3:00 pm
Warnings: None

Kyo had only been at STFU for about two hours and he had already decided that it was the strangest place that he had ever been. This was quite an accomplishment for the university considering that Kyo came from a place where people turned into animals on a regular basis. Already Kyo had seen a kid with wings, several gremlins, a strip poker match in the cafeteria, and Jesus. Kyo wondered weather he would be able to find anyone that he could relate to.

After putting in his application for a room and an ID, and posting a message looking for a sparing partner, Kyo wandered out into the courtyard. It was a very nice courtyard, and Kyo could see several students sprawled out on the grass doing homework. He was tempted to walk over and say hello, but instead decided to climb a tree. He wandered near a tree by a park bench. He jumped up to the first branch and the pulled himself to a second. He stopped there. Kyo was good at climbing trees, but getting down was a different matter. He leaned back against the trunk, and looked out across the grounds.

Little Touga wandered outside because it was a nice day and he didn't want to wait in the depressing little room for Hitsu-niisan to come back. It reminded him of being in the orphanage, only without Kyoichi-kun there to hug. Plus, Hitsu-niisan's roommate was a little scary.

So he decided to go outside and play.

Once he got there, Touga looked all around for something to do. Everyone else seemed to be doing boring things like reading. Then a splash of colour way up high caught his eye. There was someone in that tree! Someone with orange hair!

Touga pattered over to the tree and started to climb it himself, making the requisite grunts of effort needed to get up onto the first branch and then carefully pull himself up to another.

It was the next closest branch to the one Kyo was sitting on, not very high, but having required enough effort to get to that he felt fine stopping there for the moment. Touga straddled the branch, leaning over to peer at the Cat with big blue eyes and a small, uncertain smile.

"I climbed the tree, too," he announced.

Kyo had almost drifted of to sleep when he heard a voice from bellow him.

"I climbed the tree, too,"

The voice shocked Kyo enough to make him lose his balance and fall from the tree. Because he had not climbed very high he didn’t have time to maneuver in the air, but he had climbed high enough so that it still hurt quite a bit when he landed. Kyo quickly picked himself up and looked to see who had made him fall. It was some little red haired kid who was sitting on the branch bellow the one that Kyo had been on.

“Damn it kid, don’t scare me like that! That really hurt.”

Little Touga hadn't meant to scare the orange-haired boy. He was almost as startled as Kyo when the Cat went toppling off the branch. He quickly leaned down to see if the older boy was okay, only to get yelled at.

Big blue eyes started to well with tears as his little face crumpled up in sadness. "I'm sorry," he squeaked. "I just wanted to play with someone."

Touga quietly slipped down to a lower branch and back onto the ground, scrubbing at his tears with one fist before running away.

Kyo hadn’t meant to make the kid cry. The kid had just scared him, and it had really hurt when he had hit the ground. Kyo wondered weather he should go after the kid. In the end he decided that he should. He started to jog after him.

“Hey kid, wait up.”

Because he was crying, Touga hadn't run very far or very fast.

When he realised the older boy was coming after him, he slowed to a walk and gave a few dramatic sobs, scrubbing at his eyes again.

He turned a little and not-so-subtly peeped at the orange-haired boy over his fist.

Kyo caught up with the kid who was still wiping tears away.

“Hey, I didn’t mean to make you cry, you just scared me that’s all. Come on don’t cry. What’s your name?”

Little Touga sniffled and scrubbed his tear-stained cheeks on one long sleeve when Kyo told him not to cry.

"I'm Touga," he answered, looking up at the older boy with large, uncertain eyes.

"My name is Kyo, Kyo Sohma." Kyo held out his hand for Touga. He reminded him of someone, yet he couldent quite place who.

Touga bowed politely before shaking Kyo's hand. Then there was an awkward pause, followed by a tentative smile. "Kyo-niisan, why did you climb up that tree?"
Kyo Sohmakyo_sohma13 on May 2nd, 2006 10:18 pm (UTC)
The reason was of coarse that Kyo had been to shy to go over and introduce himself to someone, but he wasn't about to tell Touga that.

"I just felt like climbing a tree."
winter_rosebud on May 2nd, 2006 10:21 pm (UTC)
"Oh," Touga said. Then he flashed the orange-haired boy a bright smile. "What do you feel like doing now?"

It was true that he was the leader back home with his little sister and friends his own age. But Touga was more than happy to be an adoring follower when an older boy came into the picture.

Kyo suddenly had a horrable thought of Touga following him everywhere like some annoying shadow.

“I don’t know.” Kyo looked at the sun, it was getting late. Suddenly Kyo had an idea. “We should go to the cafeteria, it is almost time for dinner.”

Surely Touga would find someone else to bother in the crowded cafeteria.

(OOC: we should probably comment in the strip poker thread.)

"Ano..." Touga wasn't hungry for some reason. He couldn't really remember being hungry all day. But if Kyo-niisan was going to the cafeteria, he would go, too! "Okay!" he chirped.

Little Touga held his hand out for Kyo to take it so they could walk to the cafeteria together...

[ooc: XD Oh yay! I get to interact with myself. Go ahead and post your next one to that thread, since I've already linked to it.]
