Oh my, the week went by really fast. Last time we met Kiriya. This week I’ll post a snippet of the same scene but from Melker’s perspective, from his novella. And no, the greasy haired one is not Kiriya, that’s a third character that Kiriya didn’t mention. XD; Kiriya is “the tall guy”…and oh, all three of these characters are male.

The other guy had black rimmed glasses, greasy black hair that reached his chin and he was all dressed in black. Black socks, black jeans and a black wife-beater, obsessive much? When I got closer to them I noticed that he even had a black labret piercing. “Hey guys, do any of you have a driver’s license?”

The tall the guy shook his head and frowned at me. The greasy haired one glared and shut the door to his room in our faces. “Wow, bad mood.”

The tall guy stepped away from me and hurried towards the room he must’ve chosen for himself.

Muttering to myself, I dragged my feet to the stairs. How was I going to be able to live with these people if they refused to interact with me?

    Not the friendliest bunch ever. Looking forward to finding out why interaction and conversation are so important.

      Not those two at least, luckily the others are more friendly. 🙂

    Maybe he’s worried about clashing colors. Great descriptive writing. I like the detail you included about the labret.

      Nikodemus is an unfriendly ass and Kiriya’s reasons were slightly apparent in the last snippet. XD Thank you. 🙂

    Sounds like an interesting character, and I would definitely say she’s in a predicament. 😉

    I, too, looked up labret piercing. Didn’t know that’s what it’s called. Anyway, I hope she finds more friendly folks.

    You sent three of us looking for a definition for “labret.” Thank you for being so specific with your vocabulary. (Word nerd.)

      Hehe, you’re welcome! I will have to thank the MC (Melker) though, as he needs to be specific with it…he has one himself. (And angel bites http://www.piercingmodels.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/Lip-Piercings.jpg )

    Living arrangements sound…interesting. Good description of the man from mad vs glad. I’m cracking up at the labret squad above. As the mom of a nose and belly button pierced daughter a decade ago, I put my foot down a few times over labret…so had earlier referencing. LOL!

    Well this is quite a strange bunch. They all seem to be real characters. The guy all in black didn’t freak me out too much since a lot of people affect all black clothing. But unfriendly is something else. Looking forward to more info on them all.

    I almost found myself envisioning him as a ghost whom none of his roommates can see.

    That’s a warm welcome. I wonder how many of them aren’t too pleased to be there? That’s explain some things…

    Maybe he should enjoy the non-interaction time- these guys don’t sound like they’ll be a lot of fun. I’m interested to find out why they’re all there.

      He’s going to enjoy the interaction with one of them a lot later on. *wiggles eyebrows*

    Poor Melkor. Talk about awkward first impressions. I love the change in tone and voice between Melkor and Kiriya. Kiriya’s being more poetic and Melkor’s being more straightforward.

    I love black so wasn’t weirded out at all, hehehe. Although, I was wondering, how does she know he’s wearing black socks? Is he barefoot? I also had to look up the word labret, hehe I liked the interaction between the characters- they’re not exactly friendly, eh? Great snippet!

    Reply
    1. Rin-Rin (Post author)

      He’s not barefoot if he’s wearing socks, is he? XP …well, yeah, Melker sees the color of his socks because in the (fictional, based on both my own country, the USA and Japan) country they live in it’s considered rude to wear shoes indoors. (A Swedish thing)
      Well, they both have their reasons for being unfriendly but I still feel a bit sorry for Melker. XD Thank you!
