Starbucks anyone? Nah, really? Nope, but outside the place was nice. Taking her board, she placed it on the sidewalk while it was currently vacant. Being one o'clock in the afternoon, most human kids her age were off in school, but nope- she could not go to their school. Whatever… learning on her own was pretty cool and allowed plenty of free time. Although socially, that circumstance was a bummer. Sure there was time, but she would really love spending time with people her age who liked her for who she was. Sure she got in a fight here and there, but it's not like she did that all the time like some people did. She is after all a pretty outgoing individual and a normal teenager. Scratch that (oh the pun!)- as normal as normal can be these days, right?
With a left bud in her ear from her iPod and the other along with her iPod stuck in her pocket, Kori took to the smooth motion of her board on the pavement. She did not know all the skater talk like some might think, but she skated for fun. Honestly she should probably give herself more credit. Oh well, it's not like there was anybody around to see or watch her. Oh what a lonely day, but at least time she had plenty of. A few times she jumped from the sidewalk to the pavement and vice versa. They needed a skate park.

I stretched out my arms and relaxed against the wall. I quickly closed my eyes, and wondered when I'd actually step into line instead of standing at the door. I sighed adn decided being emancipated from parents, school, and pretty much everything I wanted to wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be when I signed the papers. I mean seriuosly?! I had no one to watch out for me... Except myself... I was living in a whole new world! I had even left my friends for this life that they'd kill for! I took a step forward and practically cut someone off.
I truned around to see a chick standing there like I was. "Sorry 'bout that." I mumbled taking a step out of line. "You can have my spot... I'm not really in the mood for coffee." I glanced around wondering where I should go, or what I should do, but nothing came to mind other than stand there and look like a fool who just cut off another person while getting in line. That made me chuckle. Using the word chuckle makes me chuckle, but I wasn't chuckling while stadning around idiotically.

She had heard the voice only after she had lost her balance on her board. Kori did not fall thankfully, but she did kind of making this odd motion to regain her balance. For instance one of those scenes in a cartoon where the character is about to fall off of a cliff and they come to a sudden halt and flap their arms out. Something like that yes, but perhaps not that dramatic. Being able to shift into a cat, one would think she would not have to make these gestures sometimes. Oh well, nobody is perfect.
When she had regained her cool, Kori looked towards the owner of the voice with a sort of embarrassed and cheesy smile. ”Don’t worry about it, it’s okay,” assured Kori to the girl who looked around her age. Perhaps it was a chance to make an acquaintance and a possible friend? To break the odd silence Kori offered her name and a sweet compliment. ”Hello there though, I’m Kori- that’s a nice top.” She offered another smile this time before looking down to pick up her board. The board was nestled under her arm and against her side while Kori waited for any response from the slightly… frazzled girl.

I stared at her. She was actually talking to me! And not in that rude, wierd way most people did! Was it possible? I was making a friend! Yes! Sweet popularity! I had finally met someone who I could just hangout with. So her name was Kori! I couldn't forget that one. My first friend, Kori. Her name fit her look, which would help so much in remembering it. She complimented me on my top! What do I say next? My mind was racing in confusion. Normally I was just the person that people saw and decided to avoid, and then I ended up telling everyone I met something nice... Or in cases of werewolves, something totally rude and uncalled for.
"Cool board... You skate?" My voice was cool adn collected, but underneath that nervous energy filled me up. I was ready to explode in to a million pieces waiting to figure out if we would be good friends or not. Oh no, I forgot to say thank you! She said something nice and I didn't thank her! I could swear her thoughts were abou tme being a self-centered snob who was rude beyond believe. Why was I freaking out?! This used to be so natural before I was emancipated... I closed eyes for a second, regaining my relaxed attitude. Underneath the skin, I was a frightened little teen... I'm glad I did my best to hide it. I decided I might as well fit in my thank you to Kori. "Oh, and thanks Kori for the compliment, I'm Tess." Oh yay! I even managed to squeeze my name in there! What an amazing feat. I could feel my brain beginnig to cool down, and just have fun being my normal friendly self... But I couldn't help but wonder if this chick was human, shifter, or werewolf...

It would seem that the girl was rather shy or stunned… maybe even brain dead, but Kori seriously doubted the last part. This girl was just probably shy as it seemed that she took a little bit of time to respond. Maybe it was just that she wanted to make sure Kori was actually talking to her and not to someone else behind her. Still, Kori kept that small and charming smile. Just from seeing the other girl, it was pretty much clear that she was not going to be an enemy. Yet, Kori was not on e to really make enemies on the first encounter in the first place.
When the girl asked her if she skated and complimented her board, Kori grinned. ”Yep, sure do,” she confirmed to the girl. Instead of calling her girl now, she could now call her Tess- finally a name! ”It’s nice to meet you, Tess.” She did say “you’re welcome” because she thought that it would be kind of… rude. Instead she just stuck with the polite greeting and extended her hand for the girl to shake. Kori began to grow curious then. ”I’m just kind of curious and you don’t have to respond, but… if you’re not in the mood for coffee… why are you here?” After asking her question, Kori shrugged to play it off coolly to let the girl know she did not really care, but was only curious.
I shook Kori's hand, and then of course, she baffled me with a question. Why was I here? I truthfully came in just wanting to be somewhere familiar, but that was it I guess... Unless it was also avoiding school... I decided from then on I wouldn't come back to Starbucks during school hours, but instead find a cooler place to hang out. I just shrugged as my final answer, not wanting to explain what I had just thought through. I could've explained... But then I woud need to think harder about what I was going to say. I almost said I guess I'm just lazy to my thoughts, but I managed to keep my words in.
A little animated me jumped out of my skin and leaned back saying I as just lazy. I had to remember I could never turn into that little character... I would be kicked out of everywhere if I did. I almost giggled at it, but I seriuosly was trying to keep myself from looking insane. I mean I had walked into Starbucks with no intention of standing around, and now I was trying to tell someone that! I think a small little meter that told me how insane I was acting was just ready to explode. I gazed up at Kori. "Same question for you then." I grinned my award winning smile... OK, maybe it wasn't award winning... But in my mind it was.
