The Worst Day 1

Naito_Misaki
So the night before, they'd blown up a (different) school's boiler room, and whether or not Night actually remembered much after leaving the hospital was irrelevant. What is relevant is that when one walks into the classroom, there are groups already sorted out and written on the board, along with a topic.
6:56 PM
…Of course, when your group contains the other people you were hospitalized with, one might decide it's too early for this. This is why, at the bright hours of first period class, Night is looking at the teacher like she's debating skinning him and making him into a flag for this crime.
6:57 PM Michael_Lin
just sighs quietly. Of course.
6:59 PM Shousei_Yamazaki
Shousei looks like he just swallowed a lemon.
7:01 PM Naito_Misaki
The class is, of course, then summarily divided into groups to discuss. Gather round the desks, everybody, this'll be fun. Or something.
7:05 PM Michael_Lin
just sits and looks at the other two.
7:06 PM Naito_Misaki
"…Contrary to many rumors, I am not actually witch who can read minds, Lin, you're going to have to speak for this."
7:07 PM Shousei_Yamazaki
…Going to find a place to sit, at least.
7:07 PM
"Hrrmph."
7:07 PM Michael_Lin
won't his notes do well enough?
7:17 PM Naito_Misaki
"Yes, nice to see you too, twinkletoes." Nope, the assignment requires a presentation. Because student's suffering is required in all courses. Night leans on one hand, looking…remarkably sleep deprived, actually. "So how much do you actually know about postwar economics, Yamazaki?"
7:23 PM Michael_Lin
That doesn't mean he has to talk now.
7:25 PM Shousei_Yamazaki
He sighs. Do /not/ try to give me a nickname. "A reasonable amount, given the subject rarely covers anything before that."
7:29 PM Naito_Misaki
She'll call you whatever she wants. "And specifically about the economic aftermath in the Eastern Pacific?" Night is very slowly starting to lean too heavily on one hand, like she'll eventually slip right off it and hit the table…
7:30 PM Shousei_Yamazaki
"Uhm… not enough to do the entire thing myself. Why?"
7:30 PM Michael_Lin
just slides over his pages of notes.
7:32 PM Naito_Misaki
"Because we need to know where we are already to know where to start with research?"
7:32 PM Shousei_Yamazaki
Shousei shifts uncomfortably in his seat. He took some aspirin this morning but there are still what seem to be a thousand irritable little minor pains. "Fair… I suppose."
7:33 PM
"I know where to start, at least. Do we want to just do a summary?"
7:33 PM
"…Are you going to fall over?"
7:34 PM Naito_Misaki
rights herself immediately. She's. Totally awake. "I'm fine. A summary is something…" Night picks up Michael's notes and…squints at them.
7:34 PM Shousei_Yamazaki
…Ah.
7:34 PM Naito_Misaki
…And squints.
7:34 PM
And fuck her, she forgot her contacts again,
7:35 PM Shousei_Yamazaki
He sighs. Well, I might as well jump into the deep end. "Since it seems fate is forcing us together anyway, do you want to go out for lunch? Maybe get some coffee and talk this over once we have some actual books as reference?"
7:36 PM
"If you can make it another three hours /until/ lunch…"
7:36 PM Naito_Misaki
"…I might honestly have books on this. Some…where. Coffee sounds excellent, but my apartment's too small for all three of us, so we'd have to go somewhere else after…"
7:36 PM
…She doesn't look like she's gonna make it another thirty minutes.
7:37 PM Shousei_Yamazaki
Geez.
7:37 PM Michael_Lin
Oh dear…
7:37 PM Shousei_Yamazaki
He looks at Michael, expecting at least a nod or headshake.
7:37 PM Michael_Lin
just nods.
7:39 PM Naito_Misaki
And with a sudden crash and a yelp, Night has leaned too far back in her chair and down she goes. Dignity? What dignity?
7:48 PM Michael_Lin
"A-are y-you a-alright?"
7:50 PM Naito_Misaki
"…Just. Peachy."
7:54 PM Michael_Lin
shrinks back away from her a bit.
7:56 PM Shousei_Yamazaki
Shousei grimaces.
7:56 PM
"Perhaps… you should take advantage of a doctor's note."
7:59 PM Naito_Misaki
picks herself off the floor, and snorts. "A doctor? I don't really think they're going to let me go home for a nap."
8:00 PM Michael_Lin
Maybe they shouldn't do things today…
8:02 PM Shousei_Yamazaki
"We /were/ in the hospital. It's only reasonable if, perhaps, you wanted to come to school despite your injuries but perhaps they were worse than anticipated?"
8:12 PM Naito_Misaki
"…Oh no. There's too much to do…particularly regarding that, actually." She rubs at her face, before looking across the table with an unnerving sharpness. "I'm not any more injured than I know how to deal with."
8:14 PM Shousei_Yamazaki
"Right… if they have to remove your unconscious body, I'll be certain to save you an espresso of some kind this afternoon."
8:15 PM
Was that… supposed to be friendly?
8:15 PM Naito_Misaki
"…You are terrible at jokes, you know that, right?"
8:15 PM Michael_Lin
That was a joke?
8:16 PM Naito_Misaki
Her point exactly.
8:24 PM Shousei_Yamazaki
"Yes. I do."
8:27 PM Naito_Misaki
"Just so we're clear." Right, back in the chair. "So where is this mystical coffee place, exactly? It's not as though there's a shortage of places to meet."
8:28 PM Michael_Lin
tilts his head curiously.

8:30 PM Naito_Misaki
looks back at him. What?
8:30 PM Michael_Lin
has no idea where any coffee places are. But then again he doesn't go very many places are.
