[center Megara's cheeks grew slightly pink, causing her to look away from him for a moment and brush some strands of hair behind her ear. She really wanted to be a teacher and had been really hard at work to make it happen. Knowing that a man she'd just met thought she could do it was a bigger compliment than she could ever begin to imagine.]

[center [b "Thank you. I really appreciate that,"] she said, finally smiling up at him, despite the fact that her face was burning. Getting a compliment was one thing. Getting one from a cute guy was another.]

[center His answer to her question surprised her. She couldn't imagine doing so many things, especially ones that were so different from one another. [b "Is it fun working on cars?"] She'd never been a car person, but she did find it impressive when someone could take the time to rebuild one or keep an old one in top shape. She knew she couldn't do it. Best she could do is change a tire.]

[center She shook her head. [b "Not rude at all. I currently waitress down at Daytime Diner full time. Sometimes the customers are a bit much to handle, but my coworkers are the sweetest and the owners have always made me feel welcome."] Before she'd ever applied, she'd sworn she was never going to get back into the food business after the job she'd had as a teenager, but the owners had been convincing and had proven that, compared to bigger chains, they wouldn't put up with any customers treating the staff like shit. [b "You should come by sometime,"] she said to him.]
Megara / Burning_Heart / 21d ago
When he said girls, Zeke was referring to Kimmy, Nora, Angela, and Nessa. All of them in their sense were his "sisters" or rather other fallen angles like he was. But the male did not explain it to Megara and felt like him doing so would only dig himself deeper into whatever hole he had just begun. In a way, he was surprised when he had not been questioned about his words but thankful all the same.

[#e60f26 "A teacher. I can see that. You seem to have a knack for being easy going and letting people open up when they choose to. Also there is your tastes in activities too."] Zeke said with a smile. It wasn't meant to tease her if she took it that way. He was actually trying to say that he could see her being a teacher and a really good one.

Her question that was shot back at him had taken him off guard. The truth was, he had done SO many things already. So for a moment Zeke found himself at a loss and needed to think through what he was going to tell her. [#e60f26 "This is my fourth change. But this time I'm thinking about going for Psychology.. Tried English, Engineering, and stuff. But nothing has really called out to me."] A lie. It ALL did. [#e60f26 "But I do work on cars in my free time...part time mechanic to help pay for school.."] He added as an after thought.

[#e60f26 "I know this might be rude..But I am curious. What kind of job do you have?"] Again, he was giving her the floor so to speak as he was really wanting the attention of him.

[center Megara hadn't even noticed what book he'd picked up but thought it was really cool that he could appreciate the classics. She'd read "Pride and Prejudice" a few times, though she wouldn't say it was her favorite. [b "A good pick,"] she said with a smile. She [i had] picked up that he'd said girls and not girl but didn't want to mention anything. He seemed too sweet to be the player type. Or perhaps he was and was just really good at hiding it. Either way, she was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. [i It shouldn't even bother you,] she thought to herself, but she couldn't help but think about it.]

[center When he asked about school, she was a bit grateful. It gave her something else to focus on. [b "I want to become a teacher,"] she said softly, almost feeling embarrassed. [b "I love kids and I feel like being someone they can turn to and who can really teach them what they need to know."] She'd already given up on the idea that she was ever going to get married and have kids of her own. She'd never been big into dating and even when she'd been in a relationship, it never lasted long.]

[center [b "How about yourself?"] she asked, looking up at him. [b "Anything you're interested in doing? Or something you're already doing?"] She had to admit, it did feel nice to have someone else to talk to again, especially someone who seemed so down-to-earth. It was a nice change of pace.]
Megara / Burning_Heart / 24d ago
It was both nice and irritating to have this closeness to her. He knew that it was something that he had longed for for a very long time, but also dreaded. It was always the same. The meeting, the playing like he knew nothing while he knew it all, and then trying to "meet" her all over again as if it were the first time. Many of the others thought he was completely crazy to keep putting himself through this hell as they called it. But to Zeke, the only real hell was not having her around or being with her. Cliché as it came, but it was his truth.

For a moment, the man almost did not hear her take up his offered game of twenty questions. He had become lost in his head of how all of this was playing out. But when the words did register, a faint smile graced his lips. And soon she was answered his own questions. All things he could have almost expected as she had always loved the simple things and being away from people when it could be helped.

[#e60f26 "Maybe it's 'boring'..but it's more refreshing too. The girls I usually hang out with are more like Kimmy. Besides, I may look like the badboy but I can appreciate the arts too."] Zeke said as he held the book out to her that he had gotten. The book he had picked out was actually "Pride and Prejudice" and was only shown to her to make the point. Though he knew that Kimmy would be giving him hell for it later.

And after he had shown the book, Zeke slipped it back into his pocket and then took a glance at Megara again taking her in. This time he was much more careful about his staring. [#e60f26 "Okay, so what are you going to school for?"] That was his next question to in a sense keep the game going. But more so, the fallen angel liked to hear her talk and again was enjoying the time they were spending together. Enjoying this chance to remeet her.
~UE~ / MourningGlory / 24d ago
[center Megara couldn't help but grin. He was definitely right about that. To her, there was nothing better to wake her up in the morning than a nice glass of iced coffee. She had intended to learn how to make her own at home for the times that she'd been tight on money, but she'd never really got around to it.]

[center After checking out her books, she stepped to the side and watched him, smiling to herself. There was still something nagging at the back of her mind, almost like it was trying to tell her something, but each time she tried to reach for it, she couldn't quite get a real grasp on it. Whatever it was, it was buried deep inside her mind. Maybe it would hit her that night when she was going to bed. That usually happened when she was completely relaxed.]

[center She smiled at him when he spoke to her, deciding to push that familiarity away. She didn't need to worry about it right now. She was having a good time already and she intended to keep it that way. [b "That sounds like a great idea,"] she said, holding the books just a little closer to her.]

[center [b "Old school music is some of the best, though I'd say I'm most familiar with anything from the 80's. I don't know what it is about the stuff, but most of the music from that time is addicting."] It probably didn't help that her mother had raised her on the stuff. Car rides, cleaning the house, it didn't matter. 80's music would blast somewhere. [b "Obviously reading is a hobby of mine, but I also like to do crafts, whether it's painting, bead art, or even crocheting. If I'm not sitting by the window with a good book, I like to keep my hands busy with some kind of art project."] Her cheeks turned a bright pink before she shrugged. [b "Maybe that's a bit boring, but I like having something quiet to do at times. Keeps my mind occupied."] She hadn't always been the artsy type. She had just picked up small hobbies over the years that she'd found oddly relaxing.]
Megara / Burning_Heart / 57d ago
God he wished that he could apologise for the staring. But to him, she was the most beautiful and perfect girl in the world. Nothing really creepy about it, just they literally had been together in so many lifetimes. And this time he was more than determined to get it right. HAD to as something felt different and he was afraid that it could very well be the last time.

He couldn't help the soft chuckle at the excitement she displayed that someone seemed to understand her love for iced coffee. [#e60f26 "I drink it all the time too. Just the extra kick that hot doesn't give right away. Kimmy teases me all the time for it."] It was true, his hyper active "sister" loved to give him shit for his tastes. Though ironically, Zeke couldn't explain that it had been Megara who had actually gotten him hooked on the stuff.

He stayed back when she was getting her books and watched how quickly she went through the process. It almost seemed a second nature to her. And soon he had stepped up to the desk to get his own books, eyes going to the girl when she looked at him. The faintest of smiles seeming to grace his lips. [#e60f26 "We could always play...'twenty questions' if you want? It would help us both to get to know more about the other."] She had been the one to give him the idea when she had shot the questions at him as quickly as she had.

[#e60f26 "I like reading, music, riding motorcycles and things like that. There are too many bands and musicians for me to choose from.. But I like pretty much anything from 'Old School' music. 70s, 80s, and 90s.. So how about you?"] Zeke asked her, genuinely curious and wanted to know more about her from this life.
~UE~ / MourningGlory / 29d ago
[center Megara was very aware of his staring. Instead of being creeped out, though, she felt a little self-conscious. She had no idea if there was something on her face and she wasn't about to ask him. It'd been a while since she'd really gotten to sit down with someone and talk to them. She wasn't about to ruin her chances of making a new friend. Plus, Zeke seemed really sweet. She couldn't imagine him being some kind of creep. Something deep down just told her that that wasn't the case.]

[center [b "Oh my goodness, someone who finally understands. It really is a great wakeup call!"] she said, walking with him to the counter. She was quick to check out the books, running through the process as if it was all second nature to her. It probably was, to be honest. The girl practically lived at the library whenever she could.]

[center Holding the books tightly to her chest, she turned her attention back to him. [b "So, why don't you tell me a little bit about yourself? Any hobbies? Favorite musician? You do listen to music, right?"] she said with a teasing smile. She wasn't sure what it was about him, but she wanted to get to know him more than anything. It was almost like a pull...]
Megara / Burning_Heart / 95d ago
Zeke understood more about it than she knew. After MANY lifetimes and MANY years with Kimmy, it was easy to place what she had meant between her roommate and her sibling. Not that he could actually tell that to her. At one time he would have been able to, but seeing as she was...so young and didn't seem to know him this time around, it was best to keep that to himself. There was A LOT that he would have to keep to himself and that thought killed him. But what could he do? It was tell her and get her back in the loop too fast and watch her burn...or it was play it slow and safe and HOPEFULLY save her this time around. Those were his two choices and both sucked.

[#e60f26 "She's out there for sure. But I am sure the two of you would like the other. She's bouncy and flouncy and can be a complete pain in the ass...But she's sweet enough and likes to make new friends.."] He said quietly, a fondness in his words. She was his favourite and like his sister. So as much as he was annoyed with her, there was also an affection for her. Besides, he already guessed that Megara would be okay with Kimmy. If she had been good with her roommate before, which sounded like his dear friend..

God he wished he had not stared at her the way he had. But Zeke had not been able to help it. She was just...there was so much different and yet so much the same. He was in a way trying to take her into memory. And he would try and draw her later too. Slowly he shook his head as he held his own couple of books. He was half expecting that she would find him a creep and tell him she didn't want to do the coffee or walk. So when she agreed, he looked to her and gave an almost sheepish smile. [#e60f26 "That's great. And no. Won't judge you there. Iced is easier to drink and gets into the system faster..More of a wakeup call."] He said as he followed her to the counter so they could get their books.
~UE~ / MourningGlory / 109d ago
[center Megara slowly nodded at his understanding of her words. She loved Sarah dearly, and she still spoke to her when she got the chance. However, the girl was an absolute party person, where Megara was not. [b "That about sums it up,"] she said with a small laugh.]

[center [b "Siblings and roommates are like that, I suppose. Your Kimmy sounds like a delight. I'd love to meet her someday,"] she said, smiling. She felt like Kimmy and Sarah would get along a lot more, but she was always ready to make more friends, no matter their personality type.]

[center Her smile faltered a little as she caught him staring, her cheeks slightly reddening as she wondered if maybe there was something on her face or in her hair. Pushing the reddish-brown strands behind her ear, she thought for a moment. She didn't have any plans for the day and he seemed like a sweet person. [b "Coffee and a walk sound lovely,"] she finally said, making her way to the counter to check out the book. [b "But only if you're not going to judge me for having something iced? Call me weird, but I can't stand hot coffee."] Sarah had made fun of her on many occasions where she'd skip out on the coffee she'd make in the morning for something at the coffee shop or even from the store. Ever since Megara had stocked up on small glasses that she could just take on the go. She just preferred frappucinos.]
Megara / Burning_Heart / 121d ago
She was easily as awkward as he was, but he didn't mind it. It actually made him feel better about the fact that he couldn't seem to talk or act "normal". But then, this was how it was EVERYTIME they met again. He knew and she didn't. And he never knew how much he could say...never knew how much he could do before it blew everything. This time..this time he was wanting to be more careful.

He ALMOST had not heard her words of her roommate, or rather her past roommate. So it took him a moment to register or at least hope that he had been able to register her words. [#e60f26 "So...you miss her but not the being in your space or being too much to handle sometimes.."] That was how Zeke understood her words. And honestly, those few sentences of describing her roommate, Megara had actually summed up Kimmy. Though he couldn't just get rid of her.

[#e60f26 "Your brother doesn't sound as bad as he could be.. And yeah, I kind of have siblings but we aren't around the other all that much. Kimmy kind of takes up their place and is a hell of a lot more annoying too. But wouldn't trade her either. Sometimes she is the only one who gets me, though I want to.."] Zeke only shook his head at the rest of his thoughts.

And for a moment, the fallen angel was silent as he took the girl in. She seemed so much the same, but this time there was something different. Only he could not place it. After a moment, his head shook and he offered a faint smile as he realised that he must have been staring, which would have made him feel awkward if it were on the other foot. [#e60f26 "Sorry, got lost in thought there... What do you say to getting our books and maybe getting a coffee or something? Maybe take a walk?"] Okay, not exactly smart words and he knew it, but there was that want to be around her, though even he knew the risks of being too close and for too long.
~UE~ / MourningGlory / 121d ago
[center Megara couldn't help but chuckle. He seemed awkward, but it was adorable. Of course, she wouldn't say that out loud. God knew that would be embarrassing as hell. [b "Yes and no. I had a roommate myself, but she moved out a while back. It can be lonely at times, but I will admit, I don't miss the loud music and complaints from my neighbors,"] she said with a smile. She loved her friend dearly, but the girl had been the complete opposite of Megara. She hadn't admitted it, but she was a little relieved when the girl had told her she was moving in with her boyfriend. While Megara would have to pay the full rent, she knew she'd enjoy the calm nights.]

[center She rolled her eyes playfully and shook her head. [b "If you met my brother, you'd rethink that. I'm surprised my hair didn't turn grey because of him."] She leaned against the shelf a little. [b "Have any siblings of your own? Or does your roommate take that spot?"] She had hoped the question didn't come off as rude. She knew from Sarah that roommates could be just as bad as siblings at times.]
Megara / Burning_Heart / 129d ago
Why he had to make clear Kay was just his roommate was behond him. Well actually it wasn't because most people they came across seemed tl think they were dating. And well he wanted that to really be the last thing that Megara thought. They had spent one of the many times they met before where Kimmy really had made a mess and it took awhile for her to believe him. So this time kind of taught him to be direct. At least in that sense.

[#e60f26 "You said you lived alone. Is that by choice or?"] And he did cursed under his breath. That particular thing had not been what Zeke meant to ask her. But it had come and he could not take it back. But when she had gone on to explain her brother to him, the fallen angel offered a light smile with a chuckle. [#e60f26 "Brothers are meant to be pains..and so are sisters. Part of their charms."] He said thoughtfully.

He kind of understood but at the same time he didn't. Again he was more or less trying to keep her talking. Was hoping that the ease would at least stay as he had been aching for it much more than he could have ever imagined. There was just that hope that he didn't seem like a creep or weird her out.
~UE~ / MourningGlory / 272d ago
[center Megara felt her cheeks heat up as a small blush tinted them. It was rare someone ever gave her a compliment. Sure, it was only for her name, but it was still sweet. She had never hated it, but she'd had thoughts of changing it. Knowing someone other than her parents liked it, however, was just enough to make her rethink it.]

[center When he spoke about his roommate, she noted that that was how he introduced the girl first. Was she really a roommate, or was he just telling her that to get even more of her attention? He didn't strike her as the kind to lie about having a girlfriend or not, so she assumed the girl must really be his roommate.]

[center She chuckled and pushed some hair behind her ear, glancing at the book in his hand. [b "I would say I understand, but I live alone, so I don't have that problem,"] she said with a smile. [b "I [i do] understand trying to get away from someone for a while. My brother was a pain when I lived with my parents."] She could easily remember the days he would run into her room while she was trying to study just so they could play a game or two. While she missed seeing him every day, she didn't miss the noise the kid made.]
Megara / Burning_Heart / 275d ago
And so it began. The familiarity and the draw. Both had some intents to try and read the other. Something that even now still both amused and shocked the fallen angel. The ONLY reason he guessed she had been trying to read him was the look in her eyes and how she had been watching him. Probably the same way that he had her?

[#e60f26 "I guess you're not. But I still like your name being unique as opposed to mine. Has a nice ring."] The words were soft as he spoke them. There was no harm in the compliment was there? Besides he Megara really was a nicer name than Zeke. At least it was in his opinion.

The "young" man slipped his backpack strap back over his shoulder and reached for another book. One of theology just because he could and turned back to the young woman when she spoke answering his posed question. [#e60f26 "As good a reason as any. You strike me as the type who loves her alone time and books. Oh have a late afternoon class and got bored. I knew that my roommate would avoid the library because she's bouncy and loud and this just isn't her kind of place. But I guess to pick this up too."] He said as he motioned to the book that he had pulled down and now held in his hands.
