Ok. I think I'll move our 1X1 to here. If that's ok with you.
Yeah that's cool. Are you wanting to start? Because I have to go for the moment.
((I'll just post my opening paragrapjh. You can reply when ever.))
Onyx stalked throught the halls, trying to avoid everyone in his path. He didn't meet a single soul's eyes. He kept his head down as he made his way to his first period and Homeroom English class. Just another day in he.ll. Lovely, he thought to himself as he took up a seat in the back and pulled out a Walking Dead comic book.
(Can you post our characters so I have it to refer to? I can't fin out other thread.)
((Sure. I'l post both of ours))
Name: Onyx Collin
Apperance: Tall, muscular build. golden eyes. Long, straight ebony hair. wears band tee shirts, super skinny jeans, and DC's.
Personality: sort of a recluse, but if someone spends soem time with him, he poens up and is very hyper and happy... :D
Name: Erik Shane (Mr. Shane)
Appearance: Tall about 6'4. Longish dark brown hair with dark brown eyes that are full of depth. Broad shouders and looks like he's in great shape.
Personality: Quiet and a little brooding which makes all the girls melt and chase after him even those he's a teacher.
Erik Shane was already in the classroom, sitting at his desk as he went over his lesson plan. The only ones in the room when Onyx had walked in were girls. Most if not all the girls in the high school swooned at the sight of the senior English teacher. He paid them no attention, eyes flickering up at Onyx. He smiled to himself very slightly as he looked back down at his lesson plans.
Onyx kept to himself as other students filed into the class room. He paid almost zero attention to any of them as he read the comic book in silence. His eyes filckered across the pages as he waited fot the teacher to begin.
"Okay class let's get started." Mr. Shane called the room to attention when the final bell rang. "I'd like you all to start on the fifth chapter of Hamlet. Get paired up in groups of three or four. And make sure to fill in your study guides. At the end we'll come together and discuss what you've read." he told him, watching Onyx in his perivial vision.
Onyx did not get up. He did not want to work in a group. He Remained where he was, but did as Mr. Shane asked. He pulled out his personal copy of Hamlet, tattered and worn though it was, and began reading and taking notes.
The teacher started to look over the notes he'd filled out on the Hamlet study guide before noticing that Onyx hadn't moved from his seat. No one had gone to try and work with him either. Rubbing the slight stubble on his jaw Mr. Shane went over to Onyx's desk. "I told everyone to get in a group. Do you need help finding one?" he questioned, eyeing his worn out copy of the play that wasn't the one he'd been given at the beginning of the semester.
Onyx kept his head down and his hair in his face, 'No, sir. I prefer to work alone. It helps me concentrate,' he spoke smoothly and politely while his hand writes continually.
The male looked over at the other kids in groups and saw none of them even look in Onyx's direction. That made Erik a little sad. "Well if you need help with anything let me know." he told Onxy, resting his hand over the male's for a second before going back to his desk.
Onyx almost flinched at the contact. 'sure, sure,' he mutteres as the teacher walked away. He returned his attention to his reading and notes. Well, lovely way to start off today....
Erik took note of the way Onyx responded to his touch. While teacher and student relationships were illegal Erik had been watching Onyx for a while now and held the deep secret of interest in him. It was a secret no one else knew about but himself and he kept promising himself he wouldn't try anything though he wasn't so sure as time progressed.
Onyx rubbed that hand that Mr. Shane had touched. It struck him as wierd, no on ever touched him. They barely even looked at him.... Why must you do this? You know you can't, he chided himself for having a slight crush on a teacher, let alone the same gender!
Mr. Shane went back to the things on his desk and emailing on his computer. After he was sure that the groups had enough time to work he called the class back together. He conducted the class as followed to answer questions and infer things as teachers should until the bell rang for class to end. "And if there's anything you don't understand I'm here before and after school when everyone's gone so you can get extra help." Erik told his students as they all got up to collect their things and leave the room.
Onyx got up, his bag slung on his shoulders, comic book in hand. He considered for a moment and began to head out.
The day went by and Erik did his thing. At lunch he posted a reminder in the lunch room that he'd be able to help anyone before and after school. He was concerned for some of the students and their failing grades. Unlike other teachers Mr. Shane actually cared about the students.
