Two of the senior Tekkitopia students walked hand in hand down the city street. A boy in black had had his arm around the girl with blazing hair. “Seven okay?”
“Ah Yeah! Blackrock baby!” The girl threw her hand (clasped with his and all) into the air as she shouted the concert. A small alarm started ringing as she pulled a red and white polka dotted phone out of her jacket. Checking the screen and shoving it away she gave the boy a quick kiss on the cheek. “I’ve got to get to class, so yeah, seven.” The boy kissed her on the forehead, whispering into her ear as she turned to jog off, waving as she went.
The boy pulled his scarf up to its bandana looking perch before sighing, “I still can’t believe I’m going out with her.”
“I really can’t sneak up on you, can I?” A blonde boy with goggles on his forehead and a white hoodie stopped his silent walking and passed his friend a small Gameboy looking thing.
“If people are going to call me an emo mage I have to live up to it.”
“Mm” The boy in white agreed, pulling out his own Gameboy spin-off and started pressing the buttons viciously.
About a minute of silent button pressing went on before the emo mage cheered. “Ha ha! Magic!” He made an M with his hands and did a victory dance, shoving his win in the science freaks face. “Choose it some time.”
“Ha Ha! Science!” The blonde on replied, “You should get out it the sun sometime!”
“Says the palest guy I know.” The Boys turned down the road to the small café that was host to a sacred ritual of their Friday evening. Barry’s.
“So anyway,” The younger of them questioned “How’s Zoey?” He made a point to change his voice and drawing an invisible hour-glass figure with his hands.
His friend replied by pushing him into the window of a flower shop. “You know we’re not like that.”
“But you’re dating?”
“And I still can’t believe it.” The thought about it made him smile through his scarf.
“Yeah, no-one can. I mean, out of all the guys in Tekkitopia private high school, the most adorable redhead, and captain of the cheerleaders chose the emo mage who spends too much time wondering the streets at night.” His sarcastic facts were returned with a punch in the arm as the two turned into Barry’s.
“There’s nothing wrong with night walks.” The mage placed the Gameboy thing in his pocket, the boy in white doing the same.
“Yeah, but if you went on day walks, perhaps you would have some friends!” The goggle wearing boy exaggerated, waving his arms in the air.
“I’m never helping you with anything ever again.” The boy in black joked.
“Hey Min!” The blond boy leaned across the counter, stealing a shortbread biscuit that would come with coffee.
“Minty.” The darker haired boy yanked his friend’s hoodie as he nodded at the girl behind the counter.
“The usual?” The blond girl smiled as she pushed the whited hooded boy back over the counter, giving him another biscuit and jokingly shooed him off.
“Yeah” The dark haired boy took the number she had written on a small card and the boys walked over to their regular booth at the back of the café.
“My sister told pool boy off for lying when he told her.” The blond took his goggles off and started polishing them with his sleeve.
“Does Nilesy still work at that place? You’d think they’d of fired him by now.” The dark haired boy stared out of the window on the other side of the shop, watching as two boys with matching hoodies (apart from a colour difference) walked through the door.
“Mmm, he’s assistant manager or something, but I think he’s just there so they have someone in the shop.”
“Hey look, it’s your boyfriend.” The dark hair boy nudged his friend, pointing at the boy with the orange hoodie.
“Uhh, Sjin,” he spat out the name like a virus, “I want to tie him up and lock him in a cage.”
“Well at least he didn't take you’re girlfriends lizard hostage.” The mage took out his Gameboy thing.
“That actually happened? Wow... I thought that was Sips screwing around. He tried to murder my chicken once.” The blond boy glared at the duo across the room.
“A stuffed toy doesn't count as murder Lalna.”
