The jocks do not seem to have the same idea of fun. They are waving brains in each other's faces, and then in the faces of anyone who seems likely to shriek. One of them tries tossing a brain to another while the teacher's back is turned, and manages not to completely squish it in the process.

Permalink

That sounds… just thrilling.

Eh, it's not like they're really hurting anybody.

He'll just continue working.

Permalink

The teacher is looking at her phone. The brain flies through the air again. It's not aimed at Theo, but the person who fails to catch it is right near him, and it's going to splat either on him or at least right nearby.

Permalink

Well he has gloves on so he can just grab it out of the air – like so, all fluid and rather speedy with good reactions and whatever – and then give whoever threw it a 'what the hell' look.

Then, assuming the teacher is still not paying attention – which he really hopes is the case – he can just walk over to where it came from and place it back on the tray on the desk and then return to his own.

Permalink

Oh. Great.

Permalink

No one seems to have particularly noticed the brain incident, except for possibly a couple of the people who were messing around and can't say anything without getting themselves in trouble.

Permalink

Theo looks over at Reuben, a bit confused. "Everything alright?"

Permalink

"Oh, um. Yeah. We should finish up the lab."

He's being a couple of shades less warm and friendly than he was five minutes ago, but he's not being openly hostile or anything.

Permalink

Oh well, um. Theo will just get on with the lab, then, trying to be efficient and yet also still… open to being friendly?

Permalink

Then Reuben will continue being very conscientious about the lab and very polite about deflecting any kind of conversation.

Class ends without further incident.

Permalink

That's fine, Theo was only planning on making a bit of smalltalk.

Now it's lunch, so Theo will go to the cafeteria, assuming there aren't any library-related incidents on the way there – or was the thing with Faith going to last all week? He doesn't remember if it was specified.

Permalink

No library-related incidents are forthcoming. He may proceed to the lunchroom unimpeded.

Permalink

He gets some food and looks around for friendly people to sit with.

Maybe the guys he was playing frisbee with earlier? Since Reuben seemed… a little… something?

Permalink

Frisbee guys are available! One of them waves at Theo when he sees him looking that direction.

Permalink

Em is sitting with them today too!

Permalink

Oh– cool, he guesses?

He goes thataway with a tray and sits down next to the one who waved! "Hey!"

Permalink

"Hey!"

The guy who was waving is a redhead with curly hair and a scruffy attempt at a beard. He's interested in Theo's opinions on the current topic of interest, parkour.

Permalink

He's not actually done much parkour, but he's sorta interested in the idea!

Permalink

This opinion is accepted! People compare various parkour youtube channels and debate which ones are "cool," "lame," "troll," or "sold out." Also on the topic: whether girls like parkour.

Permalink

He has no idea what some of these terms mean, but of course he's not going to mention that, and he can probably guess from context! The videos are… fun? Interesting?

He thinks it's possible girls like parkour, but probably not all of them. "Hey, Em, what do you think?"

Permalink

"Well, I like parkour. But I dunno if I like people who do parkour specially. And if there's any girls around here who do like people who do parkour, someone needs to let me know, I haven't found'em."

Permalink

Theo shrugs and continues watching some of the videos.

Permalink

Lunch reaches its end without a satisfactory conclusion on the parkour debate. Maybe it should be continued at the Bronze tonight!

Permalink

"The Bronze?" asks Theo. He's a bit out of the loop, but he assumes it's some sort of food place or maybe a club from how people are talking about it.

Permalink

It's a club! The club, apparently, not in the sense of "the coolest club" but of "literally the only club in Sunnydale." It won't be super crowded on a weekday night but there'll be people, it's not like there's a lot of options for things to do here, there's a reason people are looking into parkour as a potential activity.
