------------ :: No breaks on this Train :: ------------
A young redhead woman rush around the Food Court, delivering food to tables as if she were a waitress. In all honesty she didn't have to do this but she wished to help the chef. Little did she know this sort of work would soon become a career choice for her. Perhaps it was this moment that made her want to pursue such a job anyway. Regardless, she disappeared in the large crowd that continued to pour in and out of the food court. The menu had changed from the lavish breakfast choices to something more attuned for lunch. Each table set had delicacies from different parts of the world so anyone could easily find something they could enjoy for the time. It wasn't everyday they had such a big crowd of people considering the scientists never bothered to visit them. The chef sometimes wondered if they ever did eat anything, or if they somehow learned to sustain their life without any sustenance.
If the chef had more time to contemplate this question, he would but he couldn't. With the increasing numbers came increasing work. He had to order his staff so they could power through this lunch time without any hindrances. After all, they were to be having a special guest soon enough...

After coming back from the Aqua Space Museum and wandering a bit around the area, Haru would find himself in the one place that had a billion and one people at this time of day – the food court. While the crowds were uncomfortable to be sure when someone was actually really hungry, he or she kind of push back fears to get what they wanted…or at least Haru did. With food on his mind more so than anything else, he was able to at least get into the food court without much trouble; however, as the teen entered the area and looked around, he found trying to figure out just what he wanted to eat surprisingly difficult.
Yes, he expected variety, but this much? No. He most certainly did not expect all this. In fact, outside of some of the fancier spots his parents dragged him to, the thing he thought most about when entering a food court was some common knock off stations for "oriental food" or a few big chains typically located in a mall. While it was true he didn’t expect the food to be terrible here, the variety made him wonder just what sort of people actually worked here? This place sure went out of their way to keep their workers happy that was for sure.
Pretty much in a state of awe, Haru let his guard down for once as he decided to first find something to drink. Maybe that would help him figure out what he wanted to eat. Naturally, he went for a milkshake something his mother would pull her hair out about if she ever did catch him with one while his father would go on a long speech about why the delicious treat should not be drank; however, his parents weren’t here meaning Lisa was doing her job well of keeping the pair distracted and for that he would have to reward her later on for.
With no restraint on what he could or could not have, he would get in one line to get a shake and then after finally obtaining what he wanted, he would move out of the way and scan the area for something tasty and probably not the best for his health, but hey…after all those healthy meals he was forced to eat daily, he felt he rightly deserved this. So what to choose?
Haru. Age 17. He is currently wearing a pair sneakers, jeans, and a black hoodie with a flame like design on the back. The clothes are ruffled, but clean giving him the typical appearance of an ordinary, yet well kept teenager. He is wearing dark colored contacts to hide the fact that his eyes don’t match. He has currently taken the hoodie off and tied it around his waist revealing the black under shirt underneath. His dark colored hair that reaches his shoulders is swept back in messy yet fashionable ponytail that allows his bangs to go where they want. In his ear he wears a single ear cuff colored silver that matches the cross that hangs from the simple black choker around his neck. For all intents and purposes, he is doing his best to pull off being a normal teen. So unless one is super perceptive (or he screws up), his real identity is hidden. Unlike in the morning, he is more relaxed making him more open to things than before. Whether this attitude shift is because he feels safe, is fully awake, or is simply hungry is a mystery.
—Strength Name: Disguise —Description: Being a performer that has been placed in various roles including female roles due to how easy it is to doll him up, Haru is very good at covering up who he really is under many masks. His acting skills only add to this ability. This skill makes it easy for him to hide in plain sight. – The latter part of this strength does not apply to the prologue.

Man, time knows how to fly fast, doesn't it? Noah didn't even know when the morning had managed to pass by already. On one side, good. On the other, not so much. He didn't appreciate the day feeling like it was dragging out forever, but that was when he had everything prepared and taken care of. Alas, today he remembered a little too late that there was no food cooked at home for lunch. Getting something whipped up would take some time, and he wasn't really in the mood for that. Thus he would have to content himself with buying food outside today. It wasn't something he did a lot, and he hoped the food here was about to be good. While he wasn't a picky eater, he would not want an unpleasant lunch thanks to his minor forgetfulness (or maybe just the time flying faster today; he didn't know for sure yet).
Unfortunate circumstance aside, it probably wasn't that bad. Noah was just mildly annoyed at himself for not solving this earlier. Thankfully, the food place would save the day, and he'd get his lunch, but still. Shaking his head at himself, he would proceed to walk through the crowd of people at the food court, scanning the choices. At least, it seemed like they were doing their best to have plenty of different food to pick from. Who'd guess this place would be so popular? On top of that, he had no idea what to go for right now, and the crowds were pretty distracting too. Almost made him question just how hungry he actually was if his attention went to the people as often as that.
Icy blue eyes would pass over a guy with a flame decorated jacket nearby, before attempting to focus on the food choices again. Maybe he should just get the first thing that comes to mind and hope it'll be good....

Yomi entered the Food Court after forcing herself by a large crowd that blocked the doorway. The Woman placed a hand on her chest as she took a few deep breaths. "This is getting terribly irritating. There is no way I'll find this other person with so many people here. Let alone will I be able to find the others too." The Woman spoke to herself as her sullen amber eyes scanned the area. Could this person be in here? Surely they'd want to build their strength if they planned on doing something terrible during the reveal. One way Yomi built her strength was with a big meal, though she was always afraid it'd go straight to her hips. Lucky for her, her meals added thickness to better areas. But this was not important right now! She smacked her cheeks and took one step into the Food Court. That first step told her everything she needed to know... Her stomach began to growl like a beast, and she blushed in embarrassment. Luckily no one could hear such a thing because of the mesh of conversations going on at once. She figured it'd be best to get her own strength up. It was inevitable that'd she'd have to face this Unknown person: whoever they were.
Yomi made her way to the long line that lead to one of the buffet tables. She was a patient woman, so she found no use complaining about the length. After all, when you had children to take care of, you found the patience then. Waiting in line gave her some time to think aswell. She thought of everything she knew about her abilities as a Persona-User, and really examined just how strong she truly was. She had awakened as a Wild Card perhaps a few months ago, and face her otherself to gain her Persona. This Persona was her initial Persona, Izpapalotl. When she gained this power, she was also able to gain power through the bonds she had with others. This gave her access to many other selves that she harbored within her. Surely this would be enough to get this other Persona User to submit.
By the time she pondered it all, it was her turn to get her food. Yomi picked up a plate and began to chose from the options. She at American food everyday, so she wanted to experiment abit. This is why she went to the buffet line that served Hindu based dishes. She noticed there was little meat, and they more focused on fish as the dishes. The woman had no problem with this as she fixed a full plate and went to an unoccupied table to sit. Giving her compliments to the chef with a polite bow, she'd begin to eat her food alone.

Haru would finish off the milkshake and move from his spot to toss the empty container away. As he did this, he took a glance around the food court taking note of a dark haired male in the crowd that seemed to be looking around for something. There was a brief moment where it seemed they made eye contact, but since the other didn’t react or do anything, the young man didn’t bother with going out of his way to go talk to said person. Besides, it wasn’t like he was going to have a good conversation when food was the main focus of his brain.
After getting rid of the trash, he refocused on the lines and finally by random select, he ended up going for a Japanese themed buffet. He would follow the line and after seeing what he had to deal with, he would fine himself getting a little bit of the familiar and a little bit of the strange. The meal wasn’t exactly the unhealthy thing he at first sought, but at least it had a little bit of risk in it. It wasn’t often he was able to try something that caught his fancy, so whether some of the food turned out to be a bad choice or not, he was going to enjoy himself. After getting his meal and a water, he would thank the ones that prepared the food before moving back into the crowds hunting for a table.
As he was doing this, he would pass a table where a lone woman in white sat. While under normal circumstances he would simply go on his way and ignore most in a crowd, there was something about this particular woman that made him slow in his track and stop a few steps away from the table. What was it that made him do this though? Was it beauty? No. Was it the fact that she stuck out quite well dressed in white all? No. No. It was something else. It was a strange air that was comforting and yet somehow sad. An air that somehow pulled at Haru even though why he did not was not sure.
Not exactly sure what he was doing or why he was doing it, Haru would do the last thing he’d ever thought he would do when it came to a stranger – act upon a gut feeling towards said stranger. Taking a deep breathe inwardly, he would brace himself as he forced himself forward and approach the table where the woman ate alone. His approach was calm and natural enough as he made his approach known, so he wouldn’t startle her. Once nearer, he would speak.
“Umm…Excuse me, but may I sit with you?” he asked his tone while soft still audible over the crowd. Despite being a nervous wreck internally, he at least appeared to be calm as he stood slightly off to the side of an empty chair near by. He wouldn’t dare sit if she told him to get lost… and to be honest with other tables available, he wouldn’t blame her either. Still, there was something about her that just told him to wait, so for once he obeyed the gut feeling and did just that. Waited.

While Noah could get talkative at the right moment, it was kind of a moot point to start a conversation with a random person within a thick crowd of people scavenging for food. Most likely, he'd get looks for trying to chit-chat instead of focusing on the food. Which, he should actually do instead of thinking about it. Honestly, he still had no idea what to get, and having many picks only made the situation worse. This is what you get for not having any specific favorites. Now he had no real way to weed out what was out of question or what sounded better. Because all the food looked good, and he'd be damned to try ranking it. Toodles. Perhaps he should just go random and deal with it. He'd likely eat just about anything in the end, as long as it was edible. Go food. There was no need to waste it afterall.
That in mind, he would eventually end up grabbing something from the Japanese section, before turning back towards the crowd, scanning the place for a decent place to sit down. Not easy. With so many people hanging around, a lot of the seats were filled already, making it a slight challenge to find a table empty enough right now, before someone swiped it from under your nose. There were ones with free spaces though... And wasn't that the guy he briefly noticed not so long ago? He wasn't quite sure though, as there were a lot of people here to keep track of. Oh well.
''Mind if I join too? The tables get filled pretty fast thanks to the crowd.'', he'd ask, keeping a friendly tone as he approached the guy and the sitting lady. Those two looked like one of the better choices anyway.
Subject: Re: No breaks on this Train [Event Topic :: Afternoon] Tue Apr 05, 2016 9:24 pm
Well, she certainly was not expecting two young men to ask to sit with her. Especially when there were numerous tables that were free, even in this large crowd of people. The young woman was rather quiet for a few second before giving a nod. "Sure. I'm not sure why you'd want to join me when there are other tables, but be my guests." It wasn't as if they had to ask her to begin with. The tables were for everyone, and she certainly didn't own anything in this room. Yomi was a rather social person, but this day had her on some type of edge. She felt as if she'd be a nervous wreck if her attendants didn't give her a pep talk earlier. There was no use being self-condescending when so many people were going to be counting on her to handle this Unknown monster that blended in with the populace.
The woman continued to eat as her round eyes looked at the two males if they were to take a seat. As the Wild Card one would expect her to be the first to start a conversation. After all, her strength came through the bonds she created with others. But no, Yomi's eyes slowly fell to her plate of food and she continued to eat. If they wanted to talk to her, they'd have to initiate the conversation. She was not going the extra effort on her end. Maybe it was shyness, or maybe she was just thinking about too much. No matter which it was, she kept to herself.

It was kind of awkward standing and waiting for an answer. Even more so when Haru was quite aware that he could sit anywhere in the area. Sure, there were a ton of people and yes they did snatch tables right from under the slow; however, one didn’t have to try very hard to get a table to themselves if someone really wanted that. So if it was so easy to nab a table, then one had to wonder why Haru continued to stand where he was. He didn’t know this girl and yet…he couldn’t get himself to leave her either. It was rather perplexing considering he thought himself very adapt at the art of ignoring and avoiding others. What had changed the tides then? Sure she was pretty and all, but at the end of the day she was just a girl right? So what was the deal…?
Hm? Another voice had joined the silence briefly distracting him and causing his eyes to wonder from the pot on the floor he was looking at to the young man that had joined them. Oh? Wasn’t this the guy he just saw a few moments ago? Huh. To think they’d end up bumping into each other face-to-face. It made him wonder if the guy had come over because of the girl or if he was simply okay with sitting with people at random. Hmm…Maybe he was overthinking the matter…as usual. In any case, he would feel himself become unfrozen as the girl spoke and gave them permission to sit. Moving to the chair on the other side of the table, he would sit placing himself at across the table and a little to the left of the girl as he left the other chair for the guy to sit in if he wished to.
As he sat down, he felt himself relax only slightly as he glanced at the people in the food court.
“Yeah well. I guess Fate didn’t want me to be isolated today. Thanks for allowing the company,” he would respond back to the girl his words remaining at a soft yet audible level. He seemed calm enough as he got his eating utensils (chopsticks) and picked at a small portion of his food. He kept his eyes down cast for a long while before looking first to the girl and then to the guy with them. It was just a brief glance at both before his eyes were back on his plate again.
Keeping the food as a focus point, he would speak in rather casual tones as he asked a single question.
“So…what is your names?”
Yeah…not the best conversation starter, but he couldn’t be forever silent…could he?

This combination was certainly a little unusual, and yet, Noah hardly minded. He knew he could have had a table to himself if he tried (assuming no one would sit with him later), but wouldn't that be boring? If he was already having lunch out and at a busy food court, might as well not be a hermit crab and sit alone. Besides, company was always a good way to get through the day, in his opinion. What do you do on your own, stare at the sky? Watching stars could be somewhat entertaining though, so maybe that was not the best example...
He would nod at the woman when she gave them an okay. ''Well, I think that some company and conversation are always a good way to brighten the day. I'm already in a crowd, so I figured it'd be moot to try and sit alone like a monk.'', he'd say in a somewhat humorous but friendly tone as he took the empty seat the other guy left. As for why he picked this table exactly...there was no serious reason. Maybe it was because he saw the other guy not so long ago, making him look here first.
For a moment, he would busy himself fiddling with his food as a brief while of silence passed. Heh. He sure didn't pick the most cheerful group, did he? Maybe he would have come up with something to say soon, but surprisingly the other guy beat him to it. That could work too. ''I'm Noah. It's nice to meet you.'', he'd answer as he paused dealing with the food to look at the two. He had half the mind to say more than that, but he opted to let the two say their names first, if they wanted to. He liked small talk, but it would be rude to not let people have their say, wouldn't it?
Subject: Re: No breaks on this Train [Event Topic :: Afternoon] Wed Apr 06, 2016 7:54 pm
"Fate, huh?" The woman commented on one of the male's response in regards to why he chose to sit with her. The concept of Fate surrounded her life ever since she became a Guest of the Velvet Room. Honestly, Yomi was partially sick of the word. She wanted to believe any sort of fate had to do with her choices. She did not want to believe everything was already mapped out for her, and no matter what she did it'd all come down to fate. The thought made her start to play with her food: pushing bits of vegetables in circles with her fork. She placed her elbow on the table and let her cheek rest in the palm of her hand before letting out a small sigh.
The other male had an entirely different reason for sitting. It was true, he could have chosen to sit alone but sooner or later someone would have joined him. It was a rather large room but there were plenty of seats just ready to be filled. She guessed he took the initiative and chose who he was going to sit with instead of being in her shoes. But did all monks really require isolation? That was a strange comparison that made her think to herself for quite a bit. Did Daisoujou prefer his isolation aswell? She never really spoke with her other selves enough to know, but it did make her think of him.
"My friends call me Yomi. It's nice to meet you both. And what is your name, boy who's asking?" She responded with a polite tone of voice even though her round eyes didn't seem so cheerful. Yomi was quite surprised the young male who asked for their names didn't share his own at the same time. She was not suspicious of him or anything of the like, but she did find it odd. Was he someone important? If he was, she was sure the other young male would have noticed. Though maybe that was why he opted to sit with them?

“Yes. A strange concept I am not sure if I fully like or not,” Haru would respond back his soft tones taking a slightly serious edge as he was gazing across the food court; however, whatever he was thinking was hidden and soon it wouldn’t matter as the serious expression vanished and his eyes would soon turn back to the girl and the other with them. He had thought to say something else; however, he would pause as he took note that his words seemed to have caused something like uneasiness to settle around the girl.
“…What’s wrong?” he ask a bit uncertain if that was the right way to approach the situation or not. Still she showed sign of distress, so was it not natural to pry? In any case, whatever happened there Haru would eventually become quiet once more as he began to eat the food on his plate.
As he was eating, he would pause as he came across something that was not so pleasant to the taste buds. Giving the offending food an unreadable expression, he would move the item away from the other food, neatly isolating it on the corner of the plate. Around the time he was separating the food, the guy next to him made a comment about sitting alone.
“Hmm. Perhaps it does, but then again perhaps it depends on the person. Sometimes isolation is the better option...” he would say his tones calm and polite enough as he poked at a what appeared to be an egg roll with his fork. It was funny how well he knew that as a truth. Crowds could be tiring when you were forced around them all the time. Thus why he preferred to be alone or with a very small group preferably of two or less people. Granted with the situation at hand, he could not avoid the crowds and if he was alone, someone would probably sit with him in time. Thankfully, he had saved himself the trouble of too much awkward interaction by following the impulse he had to sit with this girl. Even the Noah’s presence was a welcome touch for the young man, but maybe that comfort came due to the fact the extra gave him a form of security. Stranger or not, the fact the guy was there made this situation a bit easier to handle for the young man.
Hm? Oh yes. It was kind of rude to ask for names and yet not give his own, wasn't it?
Haru’s eyes would drift up towards the others, the dark lenses that kept his true eye color hidden washing over both briefly before he spoke.
“Forgive me for not saying it sooner. My name is Hatsuharu. The pleasure is all mine,” he said his tones polite as ever. After the words were spoken, he would become quiet not exactly sure how to make more conversation after that....

''Does fate even really exist...?'' Noah would comment on the odd topic offhandedly, since the other two seemed to have chosen to keep it afloat past the initial statement. Well, at least the guy did. The woman didn't appear to be in the most talkative mood based on her responses so far. Really though, by believing in fate, wouldn't you actually support the fact that your own choices don't truly matter? That struck him as a bit weird. It's basically like admitting that you might just be a puppet, and he would think that most people weren't fond of the idea.
When the subject of bad moods came by, he'd simply listen to what was happening. With the other guy's fairly straightforward question, there wasn't anything to add just yet. It was a question if she'd even want to answer that one in the first place. Something about her gave the vibe that she wasn't necessarily up to a lot of chit-chat at the moment, and he couldn't guess how would she respond to it being pointed out by someone who's basically a stranger to her.
He'd stare at his food for a moment before looking away from his plate again. For some reason, the atmosphere felt a little awkward. The attempts at small talk from either of the other two almost struck him as slightly forced, rather than this being a casual conversation of any sort. Makes it hard to actually eat like this. ''I don't know. I'd think it gets boring when you're all on your own for a longer time.'' Do you just talk to yourself during that?
Noah would look between the two. The flow of this conversation was spectacularly shaky indeed. Hmm. He took note of Yomi mentioning friends, so maybe he could ask about that...? ''You two don't seem to be very chatty. Did both of you come here alone? Perhaps bringing some friends with you would have done you better than trying to pull awkward small talk with strangers out of politeness...?'' Well, he wasn't sure on the guy's part, as he seemed to have decided to sit at a not empty table himself...but still, the general point kind of stood. Either way, he was asking mostly out of curiosity due to how sluggish the talking felt.
Subject: Re: No breaks on this Train [Event Topic :: Afternoon] Thu Apr 07, 2016 8:48 pm
Yomi's golden hues looked towards the male that was currently attempting to pry into her current mood. She waved a hand infront of her face and forced a smile. "Nothing at all. I was just lost in thought for a second." She wasn't going to make herself seem even weirder with a lengthy explanation about her problem with fate. She would simply allow them to continue on with one another, but her ears did take note to the comment about isolation. Actually, it was better for some thing wasn't it? But with so many people here today, there was probably no area that truly had isolation. Atleast no area open to the public. If someone were looking to do something nefarious, most likely they'd want some isolation themselves to set it up, correct? Maybe this person she was searching for was not with the crowd, but infact was already behind the scenes of the R&D building. Here they were talking about something simple, but her mind was off in a whole nother world at the moment.
Yomi popped back to reality with the question about if she came here alone because she wasn't chatty. "Well, honestly what did you expect? A long conversation with a person you just met? I came here with my family, but we were separated. Though that is the least of my problems right now." The woman placed her fork down and looked towards the male with a raised brow. She didn't quite get his logic when it came to what he said. Was it normal for complete strangers to talk the night away? Especially these three who probably had nothing in common with one another? "What is there to talk about? I'm willing to speak, but I have too much on my mind to make the conversation topic." Yomi closed an eye as she scratched her head. This felt rather odd. It already felt as if they forced themselves to sit with her. What exactly had them join her anyway? It surely wasn't her charisma and she was really average when it came to looks. Atleast she believed so. I guess they just wanted company but now conversation aswell? Did she come off like this when she formed her first links with the people of her life?

“It would depend on who asked. Some people swear by it, but others would tell you its simply superstition,” he would pause as he briefly held his chopsticks in his left hand as he sat back and looked upward a bit as he thought. “As for myself, I see it as scapegoat. An figment of the imagination we run to or throw out when we don’t know what is going on or get in situations that don’t go our way. It only exists because people make exist not because there is some puppeteer forcing us to do something,” Haru would say before looking back at the other male his earlier nerves seeming to die down in the face of something to actually focus on.
After finishing, he would shrug a bit as if it didn’t matter. It was a theory and he wasn't ashamed at all for what he said. The guy asked a question and so he answered. Now what the other did with said answer was up to him. Being strangers, Haru didn’t really care about judgment calls at this point.
Besides it wasn’t like he was the only one acting odd. When his attention had focused on Yomi for a bit and he asked his question, he took note of her reaction and the forced smile. While his face was calm enough, he could tell that something was bothering her; however, being at stranger level he wondered if he could get her to speak what was on her mind. He debated about it for a moment before he was blinking a bit and going back to his food. An amused smirk was on his face.
“That's not very convincing and while I know it is not my place, if something is weighing you down you should let it out. Might drive you mad otherwise,” he would respond back his tone gentle and respectful of the other. Yes, he wanted to know what bothered her, but at the same time he knew the difference between a stranger and a friend. If she wanted she could simply tell him to back off or choose not to answer at all. After all, they were strangers, so she had no obligation to answer. Regardless, he left the offer there for now.
He would fall quiet for a moment as he moved a piece of food out of the way to get at a what he thought was a veggie; however, when he popped the round thing in his mouth he found it to be a small fish cake instead. So good!
“Hmph!” It was an amused sound to Noah’s word that came first as the young man took a moment to finish the cake. “You rely on people too much for entertainment if you thinking being alone gets boring,” he would say leaving it to the pair around him to translate that as they saw fit. Probably being the rare case in the world, Haru had no issues with isolation at all. He kind of lived in it most of the time. As for the other’s words, Haru would raise an eyebrow at the other before the girl pretty much took the words he had in mind right out of his mouth. He had to agree. What did the other expect? Curious he would be quiet to see what came of that.
Whatever happened there, the young man would eventually place his chopsticks neatly across his plate with a light sigh and shake of his head.
“Friends? Heh. No, I have family here too, except I intentionally got myself separated from them,” Haru would say as he leaned slightly against the table being careful not to get himself into his food. Yeah. He wasn’t looking forward to going back to them, a thought that was unintentionally expressed by the light frown he gave his food. The frown was a quick one though and quickly vanished when the girl opened the floor up to discussion. To this, he would shrug.
“I don’t know...Unless you know what is supposed to be revealed tonight," his eyes would look between Noah and Yomi searching for who had his answer. "I find it a bit baffling for this many people to be here if it isn’t something they find important. I wonder if this is a good thing or not…” he would finish looking over at the crowds once more. As he watched the people, his mind began imagining what would happen if for some reason the herd was scared…
Yeah. That wouldn’t be good.

''So it's basically an excuse. I can get behind that.'' Besides, even if it was true for whatever reason, they would likely never know. Might as well go ahead and not believe in something that you may never be able to prove at all. It's easier that way. Life goes on, fate or no fate.
He still wouldn't contribute to the mood talk, although he did wonder how would the prodding come across. If it was actually something serious, then she would likely not be too eager to tell that to a person she just met. But who knows? Exceptions happen all the time. Either way, there was no use in him adding to the mix right now, thus he would just listen to whatever the outcome would end up being.
Poking at his food briefly, Noah would lean his chin on one hand. ''Maybe? Everyone has their favorite entertainment choice. Mine just happens to be people in most cases. I guess you're the opposite then. To each their own.'' He wasn't going to bash on people for having different interests. However, he would still try to get along with them despite that. Even someone who likes being alone can enjoy some hang out time, right? If that wasn't true, the guy wouldn't be sitting here right now.
He would give Yomi a laid-back smile when she countered his inquiry. Oops. Perhaps he should have worded that a little differently. He didn't necessarily mean to come off like he expected a lot of conversation (even though he sure wouldn't be against it). ''Nah. I was just curious. I mean, if you don't feel like talking much, you could have always excused yourself. I don't think anyone would be offended. We all have moments when we don't feel like it. I don't intend to force you to talk.'' Speaking of which. ''Though I guess there are people who like long conversations with whoever. It's probably not that unusual.'' He'd say he was somewhere in the middle? He'd go for it, but it's not like he'd try to enforce it either.
''Mm...I see.'' Family, eh? Guess that's one way to go too, but that also meant it wasn't really his business. He didn't feel inclined to poke around that, and he already took note that too much talking wasn't the go to with his current company. ''Hmmm. I don't know, but it's certainly an odd one...'' Whatever was up would most likely be important, but he wasn't quite sure what was all the hype really for.
