Stepping into the cafeteria to grab a quick snack, Aerith halted her steps to allow her emerald green hues to sweep across the sea of faces that filed back and forth through the rows of tables. Not a single face seemed familiar to her and she doubted she would find anyone she knew at this time. Classes were not exactly social gatherings and were far more hectic than she clearly expected but she had already grown used to the schedule given to her. Her mornings filled with a variety of colorful characters and her afternoons were quiet fairly her own to tour the vast grounds of the campus. She had not even quite finished her tour either.
'Time enough later,' she thought to herself pushing all further from her mind and joined in the cafeteria crowd.
Each person she passed she offered a warm smile and a soft "hello" before continuing to the lunch line. For her time was a pressing matter. Her lunch period was nearly over but she had opted to seek out the library before she had even a consideration for food. However, the place remained elusive to her search and she had given up completely.
Glancing down at the small watch adorning her wrist, the clock read 10:25 am. She was going to be late if she didn't hurry up and that was something she didn't want to be. It was hard enough trying to place everything within this large campus and she knew it would take her time to do so, but this was not going to do to be late. Excuse or not.
"I'll eat later," she mumbled softly stepping out line and heading off for her optional Friday classes.
Forgive me. This would have been longer and much more but allergy season has struck for me. I just can't seem to concentrate at all in writing. x.x;; I will do something tonight. << Or try to.
