— [AU] Gone away
A problem accepting kindness from a stranger? Yes, she did have some issues accepting such gesture, mainly because she rarely received it. But what did it matter to Ginji? She was a stranger and nothing more. Yet he stood there, grinning with no care and choosing to ignore her demands. “That much is obvious. I don’t need kindness from some male I don’t know; you are simply wasting your time with it.” Such a strange person Ginji was.
It wouldn’t matter if she came back to see the while haired male again, in the end it would be pointless. Leyna didn’t need friends, certainly not now when she soon would be moving to another country; being forced into a marriage she did not want. What would be the point of making friends when she would leave them behind? It was better to keep those bonds closed— that way she or the person wouldn’t get hurt in the end.
Why didn’t she just go home already? There wasn’t anything interesting in the city right now, frankly it was rather dull and boring. There weren’t many people out and many places weren’t open for another hour or so.
One thing Leyna wasn’t expecting during the walk was some person running haphazardly into her as she turned a corner, causing the red haired female to smack her head off his chest. Stepping a step back, she rubbed her head and cursed faintly under breath. Really, she wasn’t in the greatest mood and that certainly didn’t help.
Staring up, she got ready to shout at the stranger for being careless and stupid— but paused once she recognized the person. Out of everyone she could have bumped into, Leyna had to run into the male she met last night. She stared at Ginji surprisingly, eyes widen and uncertain what to say. What was he doing out here so early? Leyna took another step back, frowning lightly towards the male.
“Here I thought I wouldn’t see you again,” she muttered, sighing lightly. What were the chances she would see him again so soon? She was really having rotten luck lately. “Is this normal for you? Running into a person because you weren’t paying attention?” Maybe walking away would be the best option right now. It wasn’t a good idea to keep contact with Ginji, she knew that—yet she was choosing to ignore it.
Truly it should not trouble him. Not in the slight. Nothing more than an observation about an individual, the not-so-uncommon fact that this girl had trouble being kind to strangers— and accepting the kindness they offered in return. Maybe he thought on it so much because it seemed like more than just a paranoid aversion from unknown people to this girl. It seemed deeper than that, and that, ah, drug up his curiosity.
Certainly, if at all possible, he wanted to speak with this girl again.
Such a fool— Such a clumsy fool he could be! Nasty habit of his, getting careless when things were quiet. Letting himself relax, letting himself think deeply instead of paying attention to the simple things placed right in front of him. Which, at the time, was a woman younger than himself. One he could recognize. Which may, or may not, have been a good thing.
Despite his own smiling demeanor, Asch still seemed just as uninterested as she was last night. Sighing as she muttered that she didn’t expect to see him again. “So you planned on skipping out on me tonight, then?” He was only teasing with the observation, but, it was true. Though judging by her personality, it wouldn’t have surprised him at all if she hadn’t shown up at the bar tonight. Which, once again, may or may not have been a good thing. After all, he wasn’t here to make friends.
“You can call it pretty normal,” he chuckled, hosting a vague air of sheepishness regarding that. “Sorry ‘bout that. But no harm done! No broken bones, no toppled people or items— I think as far as running into people goes, it went pretty well.” There we went again, poking for a little bit of a joke. Though Asch didn’t seem like much the laughing type…
“Though I didn’t expect anyone to be out so early. Especially not you. What brings you out here?” Being out so early counted as suspicious behavior, regarding the list of things he was to be looking for while he was here in Kimlasca. Not that she struck him as suspicious, but, you could never be too sure.
