"M-Mm." Noir nods as he hesitantly lets Anna take him by the arm. He occasionally glances around him - despite being blind - as he nervously speaks up. "Y-You don't have to do this, you know..." Of course, it doesn't help that she's essentially his junior so it just feels worse that she has to help him... Then after the events have finally caught up to him and was fully processed, he sort of pauses in their pace - turning towards where Anna should be. "O-Oh! You're blind too?"

Huh. Another blind person at the academy... Something he didn't expect at all, but it's nice. Especially that means he's not alone... Though they might be better than him... Man, now he just feels bad that he's bothering her.

Noir pauses. "A-Ah, well... I-It's..." He seems to smile a bit in excitement, the energy practically oozing off of him now. He'd love to talk more about this! "It's an art I can actually enjoy since, well, I'm not impeded by anything!" Thankfully, he doesn't seem to distracted as he almost routinely makes the burritos in front of him. Another brief pause as he considered something else, but that'll be something he'll have to deal with later.

While getting to the slower part of the whole ordeal, he fidgets in place, tapping his feet in impatience for the burritos to be ready. "A-And well... I-I don't get much exposure to anything that involves that much... creativity. Because of my own issues. So..." He's strangely at that weird line between stuttering mess and confident nerd. He doesn't get to talk often, so he's excited to have a nice conversation with his teammate! On the other hand... He's unsure of whether or not he'll mess it up again...

You know, the pause is strangely long, and Noir had just realized it. He decides to fill the silence with awkward laughter. "Haha, yeah... T-That's my brief thoughts on music."

And thus, one metal boy returns, this time with a bag full of newly found shirts. He will be so fashionable now. Though, he doesn't quite care about that at all now that he thinks about it. Iron just raises an eyebrow at the two, who seems to be looking into clothes of their own! He honestly thought he was get left hanging here because apparently a nice coat isn't fashionable whatsoever. His normally dull voice seems to actually have some life in it now. "I have returned, and it seems you two are doing some shopping of your own as well." He pushes up his glasses a bit, seems that it had loosened and started sliding off his nose. He'll have to fix that. "... Do we have the Lien for this?"

It seems more pointed towards the two rather than himself, due to the fact that, well, he makes Lien on a nearly daily basis...

"... You know. I didn't plan this far. Nor did I plan for you to agree with me~!" She still sounds quite singsong, but oh boy oh boy, can one hear the sheepishness in her voice. In fact, Artist begins to rub the back of her head as if that'll fix anything. Maybe she should use that head. "Well....." She bows a bit, trying to look deeper into Tiber. Her head tilts to the side as if she's trying to see something.

"You wanna get something to eat? Food is on me, since, well, I'm the one that started it~!" A chuckle.

Noir doesn't seem to resist being pulled up to his feet, but he certainly stiffens in surprise from the strange amalgamation of hugging and all its variations. His face reddens, especially since he was not prepared for that at all. "Uh, uh, uh, uh..." His brain seems to have crashed and now he's beginning to reboot. Rapid blinking for some unknown reason as he tries to formulate a thought. Words. Sentences. Anything really.

"U-Um... I-I don't go to the library too often... U-Usually already have what I need..." He just follows along with Anna, since he's certainly not able to act on his own now.

Artist blinks as Tiber starts to leave, almost as if he’s trying to escape her. The response really didn’t sell it for her, so it only made her want to bother him even more. Blink. Blink again. Then a rather soft giggle rings out as she seems to have found a rather interesting prey. Quickly leaving the range and calling out to the shopkeep that “she’ll back”, Artist gracefully made her way outside and looked for an edgy kid. Looking real hard and far, she manages to spot the kid speed walking as fast as possible, almost as if he’s leaving her behind!

With a smile on her face, and speed seen in huntsman and the like, Artist quickly and aggressively made her way towards Tiber. After all, she’s not willing to leave behind something so interesting~! Finally, side by side with Tiber, Artist puts her arm around his shoulder and hugs (read: pulls) him closer with a bright smile. ”You know, it’s rather rude of you to leave me behind like that~ After all, it’s not everyday I offer to do something like that for someone! C’mon, it’ll be fun!” It definitely looks like Artist is not taking no for an answer.

Noir wipes away his tears and tries to stifle his sobs so he can get himself calmed down in a more presentable manner. Except he can’t stop his new tears from flowing down and his sobs whatsoever. Oh well. In a voice that’s dead in every manner except physical, Noir despondently responds, ”Uh… w-well, I was looking for a-a book for my team. I-I think it was the ‘Art of Combat’ by Tun Szu,” Noir curls up within himself as he sort of just… waits in eternal sadness, ”Y-You don’t have to help, I-I can come back next time…”

Honestly, Noir couldn’t help himself and proceeds to overshare. ”I-I just didn’t wanna look like an idiot. I still ended up being a-a big dummy... “ Is it wrong for him to try and look somewhat normal? All he wanted was to get the book, and if not the book, then at least some sense of normalcy. Instead, he had ended up doing a goof infront of his junior who is being very accomodating to him right now. If anything, Anna was too accomodating and Noir only felt like he was troubling her. With that, the tear production doubled its rates as waves of sadness came crashing down over and over again.

Noir pauses as his teammate explains herself. Then the pause went on for a little longer as he processes what Lyssa said. While still a little awkward, it was not as tense as before. Honestly, Noir couldn’t really get behind his teammate’s thought process, but he supposes that it would appease her if he went with it as best as he could. With a rather small nod to himself, Noir pumps himself up to regain his composure. Looking back at Lyssa with a rather bright smile, Noir cheerfully (and awkwardly) responded back, ”Um… I.. uh… I wouldn’t say you’re an asshole. I-I think you’re pretty cool! After all, if you weren’t a decent person, you wouldn’t have apologized!” Noir pauses, but slightly panics as he felt as if he had made an incorrect assumption. Seeking to remedy that, Noir pipes up again, ”U-Unless you feel that way! I-I’ll try my best to do what you say!”

With that out of the way, Noir quickly zoomed back to the kitchen to start making the next few burritos for the sisters, as well as trying to avoid further social interaction that preys on his awkward nature any further. He was well into the process when she asked him about his cooking skills. Normally, Noir would be very awkward about the conversation. However this was something he was very proud of, so he couldn’t help but puff up in pride. ”A lot of hard work! If I couldn’t do anything else, might as well learn to do this the best I can! Smell, texture, even taste if I’m not sure, but I mostly run off of memory now!” To be honest, he seems akin to a child proud of something they can do extremely well. How cute.

Noir was basically close to freaking out. The mention of his blindness stung just a little bit, and the foreign hand that came out of nowhere also surprised him. However, the thing that got him wailing was the fact it was his junior that witnessed his fuck up. With that, Noir couldn’t help but start tearing up even more audibly. ”I-I’m sorry,” as Noir sniffs, ”Y-You probably expect more from your senior.”

Unfortunately, as much as Noir would like to continue curling up in despair, it would be much better for him to quickly vacate the premises in order to at least preserve what little dignity he has left. Still hiding his face and trying to get up, Noir would turn towards Anna once again. ”Um…. T-Thanks. I-I’m gonna stop getting in your way now.” As he begins to move, Noir stumbles once again back into his seated position. Here comes the tears again. ”O-Or not.”

”Y-Yeah, the name’s Noir. Fourth-year student.” Noir is still hiding his face from the world and he’s still curled up into his fetal position. In fact, the continued presence of Anna actually seems to make him want to cry even more! Now that he thinks about it, he does feel some tears streaming down his face. The tears come out at a faster pace as Noir almost starts bawling. ”I-I’m sorry…. Y-You probably think I’m some l-loser…”

This was nothing new for him. Noir always messes up like this, especially because of the whole blindness thing. In fact, he can definitely expect the usual response to his mess up. At least he can’t cry any harder since he’s used to this. Not bothering to wipe away his tears, Noir tries to distract himself and learn more about his fellow student. Except it leads to a train of thought that fills him with growing horror. ”U-Um, actually now that I think about it, w-what year are you?”

To be quite honest, Noir came really close to bursting into tears. Not only did it hurt, but he hurt himself in the most silly way possible. If anything, knowing that someone probably witnessed it made him feel even worse. Almost tearfully (and pitifully), Noir couldn’t help but groan in response. ”Y-Yeah, I’m okay… T-Thanks for asking…” Sitting up, Noir would proceed to curl in despair as he tries to hide his presumably embarrassed face with his hands. In fact, he was so embarrassed that he let out a moan of despair. ”Why me?”

He should’ve just left. Noir shouldn’t have listened to the voices in his head that told him that he had nothing better to do. If anything, Noir could’ve done literally anything else that would’ve been less embarrassing than this! He wouldn’t want to use his semblance for something as menial as this as well! While wallowing in eternal sadness, he sort of turns his hidden face towards where the girl’s voice came from with a question to distract her, and hopefully himself.

”Um… What’s your name? Are you a student here?”

Bleh. Height joke. He’s not that short is he? Noir knows that he’s above average in terms of height, so that really shouldn’t hurt. Though, to be fair, he is short compared to his team. I guess that does make me short… Doesn’t it? He didn’t know what to feel about that. After all, it’s merely a statement of facts, though it still hurt nonetheless. Not only that, but it could be one of those jokes Lyssa always makes, so how should he deal with this? Noir was so unsure that he could only give the most bland and awkward response.


Realizing how downhill Noir went, he should just use work to unawkward the whole situation (for him anyways). With a smoothie of a consistent texture, Noir quickly put it into a cup for Lyssa’s consumption, all with nervous laughter towards the joke and Lyssa’s response. ”Of course, of course! Haha... “ The nervous laughter fades away as he just stands there awkwardly now with the cup extended towards Lyssa.

Shoot, Noir doesn’t know what to do from here. What do they talk about? What can he even say? Internally, he’s sweating bullets. Externally… Well, he does still seem nervous but not to the extent of internal screaming.

If one was to survey Haven’s dock at the current moment, it seems rather desolate and lonely with a singular bullhead currently waiting for its occupants to make their way over. Compared to the bustling weekends where students are coming in and out to make daily excursions, there’s only a singular fourth year tiredly waiting with the bullhead. Said fourth year also happens to be letting out constant tired sighs as they rub their eyes under the mask. After all, Arian is allowed to make constant expeditions and he just came back from his most recent one. A sound of disgust rises from within him as he ponders about his current status. He can’t let his exhaustion hinder him, so he’ll have to account for it in other ways.

Moreover, Arian has just been tasked to essentially mentor his juniors alongside a fellow peer that he’s not all too familiar with. He’s not too sure as to why him of all people out of the members in his team, but he’ll have to make do. I suppose I can take the time to become familiar with the ones that’ll become my colleagues in the future. It’ll be difficult, but perhaps it’ll be a nice test for all of them to grow stronger in the end.

As Arian thinks about this, he also goes over what their mission will be. As far as he knows, it’ll be one of the daily patrols between villages in order to clear out local supply routes of any grimm and bandits. Doing this would secure the safety of the villages and transfer of goods for the next group of huntsmen. Any other information he really didn’t care for all too much.

Blank, dead eyes stare back at Tiber. Artist is basically leading their “conversation”, if you can even call it that, and she’s getting absolutely no verbal responses from the kid. Most normal people would be weirded out at this point and just back off. Fortunately for Artist, and unfortunately for Tiber, Artist is the opposite of normal and is all the more determined to figure out the kid’s shtick. After all, that’s her best trait! If her subordinates and bosses say so, then it definitely is. That’s besides the point though, since she has a new “project” to focus on right now.

The dead eyes revive as they fill with burning determination. ”Well, alright then. Say, what do you think about hanging out for a bit? I’ve got a bit of free time and you seem interesting enough to stick around with. Hell, you can decide what we'll do, I'm down with whatever!” By the end of the day, Artist will definitely find out what she wants to know, and no one can stop her.

Iron catches the clothing thrown at him, with his face twisting in slight displeasure as he glances over the recommended articles. While he’s not against it, Iron supposes that extra clothing would help and things other than sweaters would be better for any more excursions. Iron’s gaze scan the store for a nearby fitting room before frowning once more as it would take too much time with everything that needs to be done.

Well. Iron is someone that knows how to keep things simple to get things done. Swiftly removing the hanger from one of the dress shirts, Iron quickly removed his coat and sweater. It briefly revealed his upper body (as if Iron really cared), but he quickly put the dress shirt on before anyone else would notice. To be honest, Iron appreciates the feel of the shirt as he twists and turns as the fabric moves with him. Though, it does feel rather tight around the torso.

 ”Hm. You have good taste, I suppose. Do try to keep it civil as I look for similar clothing of my size. Please watch over my sweater and coat.”

Iron picks up the two clothes off the ground before deftly tossing it in the two's direction. With that, Iron leaves the two alone as he starts to browse similar articles nearby of various colors and sizes. However, he’s still within earshot should his attention be required, in many different ways.
