A small coffee/breakfast shop. Family-owned and operated. Cheap, with decent food.

Tox slumped there as he did for the last hour stroking the rim of his, now cold,
mug of latte. For once feeling apathargic. Who knew travel would be such hard work, even
for such a short one. In a way it was nice, but also uncomfortable. He needed to
something, this irritating itch to do something right there right now. He began to rip
open the sugar sachets and spilling them on to the table one by one, creating a mountain
of sugar. With exhaustion, he stared intensely into nothing living-deadlike. Ripping,
spilling and ripping repeatedly onto the table. "So fucking dull," He uttered under his

James had been sitting in the corner of the small shop, picking at the BLT in
front of him. Sarah had given it to him free, apparently exclaiming he "was too damned
skinny, an' needed some meat on his bones." He had shrugged, mumbling something along the
lines of 'thanks'. He had been there for three hours, having a conversation with an
extraordinarily short woman with yellow eyes. Of course, people would stare at them, and
he would give them rude looks. Just because she looked different. 
Of course, he didn't know she wasn't actually there. But eventually, when she nodded with
a smile, getting up to leave, he noticed the boy with lovely blue hair. Seeing the hair,
he immediately felt water, cool on his skin. He shivered incoluntarily, and watched, as
nimble fingers tore and spilled, tore and spilled each sugar packet until he ran out. A
small mountain of white granules covered the table, and he smiled slightly, tasting cotton
candy on his tongue. 
But why should he stop, James wondered with detached curiousity. His inky hair spilled
into his eyes, and he blew it back, fingering a strand. On an impulse, going against every
fiber of his being, he got up and handed the boy, only a few steps away, the container
that once resided on his table, full of little coloured packets. "W-would- I-I mean.." he
coughed, face burning crimson suddenly. Tears welled up in his eyes and a rail-thin man
patted his shoulder, trying to comfort the boy. "Y-you can..h-h-have t-this, too!" And
stood with a grimace on his face, what he hoped desperately resembled a smile.

whoops. too long.

He looked up at him with a bemused look, paused and accepted the stranger's gift
and, without meaning to, touched his hand and smiled. He went back to his menial task in
creating what was really a big mess. The awkward interaction gave him a bit of an energy
boost, and sat up properly suddenly feeling somewhat ambitious to make the sugar climb as
high as it could.
"I find tapping as I'm speaking helps with stutters, I don't know why it just does" He
said, adding to his mound of sugar. "I'm Tox by the way, just moved in somewhere near

Well, nothing's too long.
One-liners are a sin.

James dropped the grimace, actually revealing a small smile. "J-ja.." he
stammered, and began tapping on his thigh lightly. "I'm James." He sat down, watching with
lazy curiousness as he mumbled a conversation with a pretty child of maybe seven or eight.
"I l-like your name." he could feel his heart thumping rather painfully against his ribs.
It should've been totally obvious to the other boy. He continued tapping, tempted to dig
his nails into his thigh just for the shock. "What are you d-doing anyway?" He asked,
mismatched eyes wide, hair falling into his eyes.

Tox smiled back. It was always a nice feeling to make someone smile. "James? Like
the middle name of Harry Potter? That's pretty cool" He paused and stared at the grains of
sugar trickling down to the bottom edge, this task was nowhere near possible as he thought
it would be "That is a very good question," he answered and swept the sugar onto the floor
as if it would hide the mess, bit the bottom of his lip and looked over incase the person
tending the cafe wasn't looking and turned back at James with a cheeky smirk "So you look
like you've been here a while, what do you do for fun around here?" he asked, rapping his
fingers against the table.

James laughed, a small, raspy chuckle that reminded him of a cat for some reason.
He immediately smelled cat food, and his nose wrinkled. "I talk to people, I s-suppose."
He smiled at the child, waving to her as she left with a pat on the head. "She was nice,"
he mumbled absent-mindedly. "I bet she'll grow up to be pretty." 
Of course, no on else was in the room besides them and Sarah, who was cleaning the
espresso machine. "W-what do you do?" He lightly touched a few escaped crystals and
touched his finger to his tongue, smile growing.

"Oh, I see" He sulked, with a few more raps on the table, tugging on the collar of
his jumper and slouching back into his chair. "I-er-I'm just starting out really or rather
starting over. A new beginning as you might say!" he said quite vaguely, looking over at
the girl behind the counter, then darting back at James with a grin "So, do you think
she's fit?" he asked him.

James fiddled with a lock of hair, the same lock he always messed with. Braiding
it, twirling it, or just tugging his finger through it. "I, ah- that's Sarah. I've known
her f-for years." his brows furrowed, and his gaze swept over first Sarah, and then Tox.
He didn't really know what to say to him. "S-she's pretty I s'pose." he tugged at his
t-shirt, straightening out the wrinkles. He caught some sugar on his fingers once more,
licking them slowly, to save from answering the other boy.

"Sarah, eh? Ask her out then," Tox pushed "You both look like you'd make a cute
couple" his cheeky smirk growing. He wasn't sure what he was doing, but it surely was
keeping him awake for the time being. I guess it was James's peculiar nature that was
making him suddenly act so rash towards a stranger, then again Tox supposes he's always
been like this. He leant over the table towards James with arms crossed,"Well?" He egged,
giddily grinning like a school girl.

James looked at Tox, with an expression on his face like the shorter boy had just
offered him fried baby squirrel. "I- I don't like girls." he said suddenly, face burning
with embarrassment and shame. He looked down, a few tears spilling onto the table. He
shushed a young boy, and crossed his arms, looking off at a random bit of floor. With inky
hair in his eyes, and cheeks aflame, he looked up at the other through his lashes. "I
don't really like people that way in general-" he confided, biting his lip so hard, that
he felt blood trickle onto his chin.

Closed roleplay.
And honestly, I don't know why I accepted you.
Your "crazy" is not all that remarkable.

Don't apologise.
You're a decent roleplayer, but I don't think this club is for you.
I mean, it's too obvious.
Already done.
It's the most obvious route for crazies.
Work on it a bit, then try again.
It's alright, love.
Please don't take offense.

Glitch or are you just having a weird conversation with yourself?

"Shit...shit" He stammered, jumping towards James with a tissue in hand, shaking with
panic as he dabbed his fingers on James' trickling lips "I didn't know it'd upset you, I'm
really sorry. I just thought-" there was no real answer to follow that. Tox sighed as he
pressed the tissue against James's soft lips, waiting for the bleeding to subside. He
hadn't looked at him properly until now. He felt a bit regretful that he had occupied
himself so much on his sugar mound, only really to gaze at a bloody face, swollen pink
with tears. Still, he was terribly nice to look at. Unlike any of the boys he's seen back
home. He stared into his peculiar eyes, unknowingly with a smile on his face. 'Didn't he
just say he didn't like girls?'.
