  1. Tyson probably would have been taking notes if he didn't think that it'd be pointless to try and capture every word spoken. Elemental Magic had been a practical activity versus an actual legitimate course and left room of improvement and knowledge up to testing - Failure and success would be the true impact of knowledge and whether he would allow himself to get dejected or even surprised by the fact that now there were effigy's before them lit ablaze. At least he could keep the description in mind of a general sense by the summary gifted through the instructor, that would have to do for the time being until he made enough free time to jot down the information that he could remember later. The tips of his fingers walk along the length of his Red Oak wand before he'd take it fully within the center of his palm sliding it out of its place that hung on the loop of his belt. His arm lifted upwards as he pointed the tip of the wand forward towards one of the burning scarecrows honing his gaze forward and keeping the target in mind. He didn't want his thoughts to drift off or his will to waver in the midst of the roaring course of fire that crackled within this ears. A sharp inhale from his nostrils form while his hand fluidly traced through the air, aware and familiar with the spell yet it was the potential pressure and atmosphere that always seemed to add a bogged down presence when casting. Either way, he steeled himself and found that his motions were well enough while speaking out the words of the spell. "Aguamenti!" It was a jet of water that expelled out of his wand pressuring forwards in a geyser effect which coated along one of the standing strawmen. It quelled the fire in a sizzling sound when the cool wetness of water often accompanied the presence of a fire trying to keep itself alive.
  2. School Break meant no more classes, no more books, and no more teacher's dirty looks! At least, if he weren't still living on the school ground for one more year. It wasn't all bad though since the break meant he was given a lot of freedom and able to travel through the city as long as he made it back safe and sound which was always a benefit, he couldn't hate wanting to actually be safe. Today, though, wasn't the time for him to be safe but enjoy the company that would soon be coming - keeping in contact with Violet since they had met at the gym he found himself easily drawn to the woman and the talks that they would have, the way they joked around when they could. At the same time, at least for him, he found he had to hide his phone and other things that went on while on school ground for the obvious reasons that might bring attention were he wouldn't like for it to. On one hand, his coach might find it an unethical thing in terms of sports but there had also just been the sheer situation of their age which hadn't escaped him it just wasn't a thing he wanted to be a concern. Even if others held a concern for it he was old enough and aware of himself enough to know he wasn't being manipulated or used, his mind wasn't being warped or tricked. The woman was genuine and that is something he respected along with her dedication to the game and her devotion towards the players that she trained. He sat at that place where she had taken him before, the establishment ran by the Friend that had known her father. Outside was a lovely day today and she had been right, the man treated him like family and made the visit all the more worth it. Not to mention the food was top notch like a Mom and Pop jewel waiting to be discovered by the much larger world looking for cooking here people often put their heart into it all. A Newspaper was sprawled out in front of him as his jaw clenched reading over the fact that the one known as 'Thomas' was still at large and vigilance was necessary. A hand rubbed at the top of the table as he shook his head since it meant that the Auror's at Tally were expecting a hit of some kind or someone to sneak in and start a bout of serious chaos along the grounds. That didn't sit well with him at all.
  3. "Ahhh~, See, I gotcha to laugh, already on the upside." His head shook lightly as a smile formed wider on his face. While he was usually a focused and determined individual there wasn't any rule that stated he couldn't let that guard or intensity down when the moments require it. Staying as an obtuse person would only cause more stress and that wasn't something that he could take the risk of going through, no more than he was already dealing with, of course. "One word for it, eh? Aight, yea, I can definitely see that." There was no true positive precedence for this - one might consider them relatives if they didn't know either of their lives. But a closer look at the information would have been an alert towards what could potentially have been building. The scent that flowed from her filled his nose and he took a subtle and deeper sniff as his mind engraved it within his memories. "Oh? That right, yea? Sounds like you're more afraid of saying that answer." He lights poke back in a challenging connotation. Tyson expected it was much more complicated than that or maybe it was just her own way of teasing and flirting, but he had his own way, as awkward as it may seem to most people. Mostly because he just didn't flirt. "Yea, figured it was something like a goal or something. Most that want to slap on some wonton destruction that's international and criminal probably wouldn't focus on a single school enough for that many five-O's to walk about on." His hand rose up to rub at his chin lightly in thought. Thinking on it won't help the situation but it at least gave him more control over his nerves, that will be helpful when he went back on campus. "Maybe. . . Unless we know whatever he wants or connected it I guess? But, eh, me worrying about it won't do me any good or favors. " Whenever trouble showed its ugly face it would do so, that was when he'd deal with it if need be. He had more problems of his own to deal with in the immediate anyways. A snorted laughter escaped from him as he shook his head. "I wouldn't know, I don't pay all that attention. Ya know? Sure they're all fine though, no biggie." He shrugged it off as if it were truly a non-issue. The way she stared at him caused his eyes to blink a few times as he leaned back in his chair staring back at the woman. "Why you? Sheesh, ya' gonna have me be that blunt?" He shifted his gaze away towards the constantly moving crowds that strolled along the sidewalk, the different people and places that they had went into for whatever reason. "Cleary cause I'm interested in ya'." It was stated bluntly, as if it were a matter of fact as he turned back to look at her. "Usually folks tend to notice others because of interests."
  4. "Ha! Aight, I get that I hit a bit of something there." He nodded in resignation - He knew it wasn't an easy thing to try and learn another position especially after being dedicated towards a single one. It even made those that played the field in that way more rusty if they had to stick to only their main, no opportunity to be a true wildcard would make the skills less than ideal. But he took it as a learning experience too, one never got a good perspective of things without stepping into those positions. "Sometimes it's good to just roll with what you want. Less annoying than trying to pick up a new trade if you don't really need to." An arm rose up and made a firm congratulatory pump in motion. "That means you'll be taking the field! Nice, nice. Plan on trying out for the School team too? I know not many folks try out for it but hoping to see that change this year. Facing other schools will drum up some good insight on competition. Not to mention, always nice to get a rival or two just to get that push." Sports, they were battles of the best and only the top of the top ever succeeded or at least were noticed enough and give accolades for building up strength that was hard trained, drilled and firmed, taken to the next level to be winners. It was an intoxicating idea and one of the reasons he worked himself so hard. "The intense discipline and the need to always find a reason to exercise? Yea, I get that a lot." A short sniggle resonated from him as he made a slight joke about himself. But then shrugged soon after as if it were no big deal to him. "Something I got into, channel the aggression I had as a little tike. It just happened that it worked out in the long run for Qudditich. That and I found that I actually really liked the constant activity, ya know? It helped to keep my mind focused but also let me think about stuff I needed to work through." Giving one final stretch to his arms he could feel the pressure of muscles tightening and massaging themselves from the motion of it before following behind Gerry. "The smaller the better. I haven't checked the equipment room too much this year, hoping they got a bit of upgrades to some of the old stuff."
  5. Tyson had decided to go through his usual regiment with fingerless gloves attached to his hand and his attire being that of under-armor fabric from the Muggle side of the world that clung to his chest for better breathing and movement through physical activities as well as well lengthened shorts that seemed to hold similar fabric just under them in the form of firm clinging leggings. Sneakers were worn as well though they had seen better days, a clear indicator of being re-patched up, stitched, and maintained lingered as some parts of the material had been faded and many of the stitches woven through its various areas were different colors. Often he just used whatever was on hand along with shoe gum or glue to attach the soles back nice and tightly for him to use it all again. Even though his parents were well off he didn't benefit from them, not anymore, he made through with what he got on his own merits and the meager amount of cash he could bring up until he had more time to devote towards upkeep of his own benefit. As for the young man's regiment he first started to traverse around the ground by foot running a few laps around the around in a pace, not going too fast as if he were running a race but just enough that his body could feel the effects of being slightly more pushed than a normal jog. Lips parted as he breathed through his nose and out of his mouth to better keep his heartrate controlled but also to continue on training up his cardio. At the center of the field seemed to be a few bits of equipment, a broom and a Quaffle to practice throwing through small hoops that extended into the ground. He didn't want to over toss the spherical object and have to chase it too far if he didn't really need to do it. Mentally settling on if he had ran enough times around the area he started to run back towards the center of the pitch and stretched out his arms, side, and legs so that they wouldn't lock up on him. A brief cool down exercises before he'd have to take up the real work that he needed to do, all the while, he hadn't been too aware of who had been within the vicinity practically zoning out due to his activity. It took the slight motion from the corner of his eyes when he turned about to grab up his broom that he had halted to see a person heading towards the area. "Yo', what's up?" The young girl seemed familiar and then it hit him a bit, he had faced House Sturt in a few games and had seen her as a Bludger for that house one times. "Oh, yea', I remember you." He never had the opportunity to catch her too often. Truthfully, he admired her aggression and tenacity, mostly because he saw those kind of traits within himself.
  6. Toothy smile formed as his head tilted as well. "Oh, I didn't forget that. You're someone whose hard to miss." Maybe that was just due to his previous exposure, even a partial factor that he had encountered her in a place he never would have considered a run in to occur. Even he had to admit that there was a sense of concern for the way he had noticed her, but it was something that he also knew he'd more likely regret trying to pretend otherwise. A life of regrets wasn't something he relished in looking back on - that would hit too close to home. "Probably not! I bring a good workout and a rush of adrenaline when exercise day rolls up." He grinned at her trying to add more levity to the situation. "Besides, you don't seem like the person who would have followed along if part of you weren't curious either." That was a sign of 'It was okay' on some level, at least, between their two perspectives. It's always when other perspectives chime in that things take a different turn. Tyson's brow elevated as he leaned in just a bit more on the table top. "And what exactly do you want?" There was a curiosity on his mind in wondering what would be desirable enough for her, something that causes a limit to be placed. Or maybe, he wanted to eliminate the idea that limits were a think even for the brief moment that they were at this restaurant. A chance to understand and get a more direct answer on what lingered on the woman's thoughts. One of his hands rose up to rub at the back of his head then scratch slightly. "Yea, I get what you mean. I know there are sick folks like that around, I mean, didn't expect to run into any this soon in my life. Or, rather, be put in a situation where it was an actual possible issues." Mind boggling, what kind of traumatic life or twisted mind could make the steps to be a criminal with such crimes on their plate? Either way, that kind of thought wasn't his concern - Yet. "I don't doubt the wack job gets off on it. Course I also know it's why we need more folks in the system willing to take on that kind of risk." Was he in a state of mind of self-sacrifice that such a job could be in his future? It was something he would have to decide eventually, sooner too as the terms seemed to come in and out quicker than he could take notice. "Ha! The sound of disagreement!" A strange look was shot towards Violet's direction which caused a snorted snicker to extend out. "I don't really go about noticed ladies, at school I tend to focus a bit on what I need to do, ya know?" Tyson then tapped his fingers on the table. "And I am always confident, Snarkette! Just like you're really the only person I've noticed, I guess is one way to put it."
  7. "Sometimes ya' got the cat's, the cradles, and the silver spoon too." He responded back towards her with a playful grin on his face while he leaned forward and against the top of the table. Though his head soon shook afterwards with a broader grin etched on to his mug. "Don't need me runnin' the streets, huh? Keeping a heavy look out are ya'?" A shrug formed and a gentle chuckle eased out of him. "I don't mind, can enjoy the view all ya' want, Snarkette." He at least planned to enjoy the view that was settled in front of him without any form of shame or concern. "But it's good to see ya' deciding to stick around, I can get with that." Even if she had to find an alternative reason for it, just meant that was one step forward. Both of his hands raise up as if to surrender the point. "Hey, I'm all on the ride to grabbing whatever you like. Life's too short and chaotic not to smack on your favorite foods, for real." Tyson hadn't been through tragic loss but he understand a sense of loss and the constant presence of other figures around the school made the understanding of what a heavy and flammable atmosphere could amount towards. It was enough that it made his own neck stiff. "Nah, I get the reason behind it but. . . I guess you kind of just have to see it to get the foreboding environment behind it all." Tyson's hand rose up to rub at his cheek in thought, he needed a way to explain it from his own view. "Like. . . If it was a small number, a light guard I probably wouldn't even look twice. But the are a lot of them walking around - that already tells me how dangerous this dude really is. Not to mention. . . They blend in horribly." The last bit was to add a bit more comedy to the heavy thought. "It's like a rose trying to pretend to be a daisy, ya' just know it like a broad smack in the face." His head tilted towards the side a bit as he got a bit comfortable and listened into her report on what had been going on, as light on details as it had been. But he understood there were things she probably couldn't tell him. "Yea, safe is good, I am on that team. Only way we'd get to have our dates like this." A coy wink flashed towards Violet with a matching grin to boot. It was partially a tease and partially serious on his own part, however. "I already know you'd miss me."
  8. A hand wrapped around the glass of homemade iced tea in a glass as he lifted it up and pressed it to his lips to drink from it. It was a much needed drink especially with the shift of the weather and the cooling breeze that hung on the wind. There had been a form of relaxation from it that accompanied the energizing way the beverage felt in him. As the greeting came his way a smirk pressed on his face and eyes followed towards the voice. He had found her a beautiful woman before hand, of course, he also was much more aware of her age than she had been of his own. "Snarkette actually shows up? Aight. I guess that's one point for you this time." He grinned at her then proceeded to fold up the newspaper and settle it towards the side a bit shaking his mind from what he'd be walking back into once the break had ended. Tyson watched as the Hostess took the order and headed off then fixated his attention to Violet who had decided to sit down. "Nachos, huh? Is it cheat day already? I should have gotten something a bit more." He teased, though he already knew how to work off whatever was put into his body. Just needed to make sure that it was a good burning exercise which could be done practically anywhere. A hand felt the top of his head sweeping along the fresh cut then settled on the back of his dome where he rubbed at it in uncertainty. "Been trying to enjoy it but to be for real? Going back to Tallygarunga has me more nerve wrecked than I would have expected, ya know?" Side glancing towards the newspaper as he began to stretch his arms upwards. "Auror's around every corner, practically can hear the night shifts during the dorm downtimes. Teacher's are much more stiff and on such high alert that things are locked down tighter than Azkaban." He brought his hand up and rubbed at his chin before placing it on the table once more. "Been just trying to work out and relax myself for what I am going to end up walking into, ya' know? What about you? How've things been going and all?" He had been concerned, hoping that she wasn't taking too much of a hit coming out so often to see him or keeping in contact with him. Especially since even he could see he had been developing more feelings towards the woman.
  9. There had been a few reasons he hadn't stepped in to check up on Eugenia of late and primarily it had been due to himself being more off campus during the free times trying to gather things together for himself. Being at the peak of his graduating year he needed to make sure that he didn't stumble into a bunch of mess after exiting, albeit, now he found himself in a different kind of mess than he had ever anticipated but that wasn't too big of an issue if he was being frank with himself. The Garden's above Tallygarunga seemed like a pretty safe bet to have a calm chat without him hyper-focusing on his usual sports or athletic feats that often took him for a much longer ride. So, earlier in the day he had made sure to stop by her Common room to let her know to meet him in this place. He found a nice little bench and table setup just under an over arching tree that provided just enough shade that he could remove the hat that straddled his head. Both of his feet lifted up to rest the base of his calves on the edge of the table while he leaned back with a book wide opened and nestled against his stomach. Of course, it was really a magazine that detailed different martial arts gear that he had been considering getting and having set up in his new home whenever he could get one on a good agreement. "Man~. . . I could really use a lot of this stuff too. Not like imma be able to get all of it but some stuff might be good." Tyson mostly responded to himself as he closed the magazine and settled it on the table before sliding his legs off of it and planting his feet onto the ground to lean forward and lift his head up to glance around the area to see if she'd show up. "Hope she shows up, girl's been spaced out for a while now that I think about it. . . Kind of worried about what's gnawing at her."

  11. A hand grasped around his phone a she walked into the classroom, a smirk pressed on his face. This was a pretty amusing conversation he had been texting to Vi but immediately had to close up his phone and slide it into his pocket. Head lifted up to gaze up to see the tables and chair spread away from the center of the room and it seemed a few people were already packed inside ahead of him. From the look of it all, it seemed like practical magic was about to be put into fruition in this class and that meant it was going to take up the slope of a good ol' fun time, that was for sure. Moving into the room further he'd drop his backpack onto the table and turned to face the Professor fully with his hands delved into his pockets. It seemed Naoki was going to be upbeat like usual, he didn't mind it, added more diversity to the classroom in a lot of ways. Spotting Morgan and Roe once more his hand rose up to shift into a peace sign as a 'Hello' greeting. He hadn't considered until now how many classes he actually shared with the underclassman which was probably an upside considering he could always help out in tutoring her if her health ever made it difficult to get about. Everyone had seemed to have went through some interesting things in vacation - Wait - something about congratulations? He shifted his gaze towards the lovebirds in the corner spotting the matching rings that hung on their fingers an a eyebrow quirked up. Guess everyone was in a rush to 'start their lives' one way or another, weren't they? Tyson shrugged it off that wasn't his business and it certainly wasn't his relationship to ponder on. "Uhh. . . I just hung around really. Met a friend, chatted a bit about some stuff they're helping me with and ate out a couple of times." He kept it as little information as possible not wanting it to some how bite him in the butt later on, at least, not until he was fully out of Tallygarunga as a graduate. Or at least, as an Adult which technically meant both at this point.
  12. "Not a lot of folks forte, though it also could be a pretty good skill to work on. I mean, if that's the kind of thing that fulfills, ya know?" If she didn't have the passion for wanting to be in the thick of the matches in that way and preferred being the one smacking the orbs that was probably best anyways. The game wasn't enjoyable or fun if you weren't in a place that seemed as if you were making an impact while enjoying yourself as well. "You going end up competing this year?" It was a question of curiosity but also just to see if he would have another tough competitor for the other rivals. "Or planning to take a bit of a hiatus to focus more on the school work and exams?" Considering they were both in years that required a pretty intensive test at the end of the year he couldn't fault her for taking the path of focusing on studies, probably something he should consider. "Oh yea? Aight, word, I'll run with that then." That was a challenge Tyson was going to pick up even if it managed to leave a couple of bruises but he was at least lucky he was much more trained in body and reflexes than the average Wizard student. Or. . . Maybe most wizarding students in general considering many never touched the idea of exploring the muggle world and all of the promise it holds. "I'm aiming to be a tough competitor one way or another. Challenge myself and I challenge others, only way folks can grow in the middle of the game, ya know?" Tyson's head light shook at the prospect of having a better idea. "Nah, most of my dodging practice ideas come from martial arts activities. That isn't really something most folks here are into."
  13. Tyson had been running a bit late but not after the late bell, that much he made sure he was up and ready before that ever could be marked against his House. It had been a rough time going between school, dealing with the Dojo, and trying to connect a bit to Vi. Which he wasn't even sure what was happening with him in that regard but he knew enough that careful caution was necessary for the both of them considering the situation of where they both were at this part of their lives. That being said, Tyson was a bit tired looking but was beating pass it and really didn't need to focus too much on it. After all, once he had entered the classroom the display of water pushing through all these various angle and with this particular setup open up his attention and mind to an highly alert mode. "Yo' this pretty slammin'." A nod of approval formed from him even if it was intensely odd sight to have at this time of the day it was definitely something that could jog awake a persons mind if they weren't expecting it to turn out this way. And yet, he felt he should have seen it coming considering exactly who the instructor was since the first term. After picking up a seat next to Morgan he sat his bag down and gave a light nod towards her. "Yo', wassup, Morgan and Roe." He said in a greeting giving a firm smile towards her direction. Until the professor called for their attention which required an answering to a question. "Yea, I see water as a Force. When it has you, you're at it's control it can either be nice or push you so hard that you crash and break." Enough issues happen where water is the soul perpetrator but also is what saves people, almost as if it held a will of its own under the surface of it all. "It contributes to keeping control, it helps to cool stuff off, ya know? Like if a Volcano starts to spew the moment it touches the water it's cooling off to make up some nice rock surfaces."
  14. "Ah, I getcha on that one. Going to that big hall is more of a hassle most days anyways." The different people that congregated had been interesting but not interesting enough to stick around long term for ideal chit-chats and gossips. "Oh yeah, I exercise almost half of my school life away. Usually some basic stuff like jumping jacks, push ups, and whatnot. I have to go offsite more often for weights and using sparring dummies." It could get pretty difficult jumping from one place to the next just to get the proper workout regiment that is also why he had pressed himself to a schedule for better focus. Tyson formed a grin that had been followed by a light chuckle which caused his lips to curl more into a smile. "That's a pretty good trick I'll need to keep that one in mind. I mostly keep stuff like protein drinks and bars stashed away. Not the -best- for nutrition on a consistent basis but it works out for me in the long run especially since it's mostly to just curb the hunger while I handle other stuff in the day." Preparing for the major test for the end of the year was much more work than he wanted to admit as it meant he needed to gather up all the materials he had been learning since the start of the term, catalogue them for later usage and then build up on them to make more sense and be accurate. "After going through the process for a few years you tend to get a bit bored of somethings, well, mostly the repeating book learning stuff." He understood that going back to the basics was an important strategy, most people who are masters of their arts often forget that the basics are there not just for a guideline but a foundation and once you forget the foundation you open yourself up to being a victim of the most basic of things. This is perhaps the major reason why he picked up the class again this year. "I have a few spells still from my previous years learning in DADA. The more easier spells that can link up with dueling, too." He laughed at the lounging form of the canine as it's head lifted up and dropped back down onto the floor. "He seems like a pretty loyal hound. How long have you had him with you?"
  15. It was a moment of his eyelids shuttering several times not used to needing to explain that kind of a phrasing His hand rubbed at the back of his neck even as a shrug flowed from his shoulders. Not that it was that big of a deal everyone had their own way of processing what they heard differently especially when it came to actual exposure in life, if she hadn't been a position to hear it used in that kind of a way it wasn't really her fault. Just the way of the environment that she had been around worked out. At least she caught the relation he meant for his name which wasn't a person he wanted to relate himself towards but since they both were into a form of martial arts it made it easier for others to connect that similarity with the name. Tyson just knew typically when it came to sports in many cases you don't want to be related towards something docile or graceful unless it was some kind of gymnastics tournament, maybe. In contact or active sports that require a team against a team gunning for the prize all at once, people wanted to be set apart as vicious and willing to get the job done. To be a different kind of predator in the apex manner, one wanted to be considered a Lion amongst the sheep, a bull amongst adversity, a bear that protects the collection of their 'young'. How one approached it often gave the radiation from them and impacted the crowd and how much they roared for such a play in a persons personality. While he should be trying to pick up tips and the subtle triggers on how to get at the young woman when it came to the game he also wasn't the type to go snooping around for the 'Game tricks', no, there had been no fun or challenge in already knowing what the persons thoughts actions or plays already were. Watching videos of past matches were much different than intentionally trying to rip open a persons 'Playbook' of sorts. The heat of the moment of deciding whether or not how to react, trying to read the person and succeeding in that endeavor was something that could unhinge a player if they believe someone is that intimidatingly good. "Oh, no, I don't think it. I know it." A small smirk pressed on his lips as his eyes narrowed towards Gerry. He knew he had to believe in his own capabilities first before anyone else would ever place faith in them. As long as he knew it, believed it, acted on it, and grew in it - then it would be a truth that he could live by. "Sounds like you're planning on trying to put that too the test. I ain't mad about it, see if I'm the real deal or just walking around pretending at the play." He was often tested in this way and it was something he grew accustomed towards. In the meantime he started to stretch his body starting form his arms and torso then leaning forward to stretch the back of his legs to loosen them up in order avoid the limbs from locking up or a cramp forming up within the ribs or back.

  17. Tyson needed to get off of the school grounds and it was mostly because it just didn't seem like a proper atmosphere to get into a good training regiment. He had been lucky enough to gain a temporary membership to the gym 'Fitness World', that had just recently opened up. Mostly because the instructor that he had assisted in teaching Muay Thai with in the muggle world knew enough people in the fitness business and wanted to make sure that he could get the best possible outcome for his body. It always came down to having himself well tuned up which extended out towards his activity in Quidditich for Tallygarunga. He had been playing for Bourke a few years now since the second year at the school as a Chaser which gave him a new thrill all of its own in life that martial arts just never seemed to own up towards. Thrill of soaring through the skies on a broomstick while holding clenched onto it with a massive ball under his arm, weaving through the bludgers and the people that would aim towards him while he held the quaffle. It was a sensation that he would never replace for anything and it often offered a much better appreciation of the wizarding world and what it had to offer up. An ingenious idea towards some old tricks learned through the history of people since the dawn of man's time. As he pressed his way through the gym he had decided to go for the usual attire for himself wearing his under armor torso and leggings along with length red shorts. Brown eyes gazed around at the various people of different ages and builds. At least it wasn't a completely elitist environment just folks trying to better themselves which was something he could empathize and sympathize with at the same time. Tyson started to scope out the different machines to get an idea of what he wanted to build his regiment around and spotted a few treadmills, barbells, and various other training equipment. He had been so focused on trying to mentally plan ahead what each part of his body would get in training he hadn't noticed himself bump into a well fit older woman. "Oh, My bad. I wasn't paying attention, kind of got deep into checking out some of the equipment." A slight stumble on his head as he grasped hold of a nearby bar to steady himself against fully toppling over.
  18. There were many things a person needed to give a critique about from their own perspective. Even if it were just to themselves and on if they'd ever recommend any one to the same kind of food or service he had received. "I'm thinking about a good steak with some mashed potatoes. Gotta' love the old home cooking feel that comes with that kind of a heart meal, ya know?" Tyson couldn't even remember the last time he actually had a warm meal of such a degree, not even Tally really offered that at least mot the atmosphere that it could bring with that many people in one room. Most times it feel like he was in a little orphan Annie flick with how many people had been at a table. Not everyone would like the way someone cooked or the way that the food tasted, at the end of the day, people were ruled by not only the skill of the chef but the palette of their tastes. "Figure that he's opened and still bringing in the cash for some reason. Folks without skill don't have that kind of talent unless they have something to back it up." Usually, anyways, some people just didn't have any taste what so ever. Now it came down to a drink and truthfully he wasn't feeling the need for anything carbohydrate so he had already put in his mind what he'd want. "Definitely going with the fresh squeezed lemonade. Feel like I having a taste of nature." A smile perched on his face as he fully pressed the menu down and look towards Violet with full attention given. "Hehe, it must feel pretty weird to think ya' parent could be much more trouble than yourself, huh?" Not that he'd know how that felt particularly he only knew prejudiced workaholic's and that was the true extent of his knowledge. There were things in their life they had viewed as not important enough to impart on him and now at this point of his life? He felt glad that they hadn't, it meant he had no reason to truly have that fond 'connection' from their own memories. "Yea, I mean, it's a start ya' know?" Tyson wasn't taking the opportunities given to him for granted and wanted to make the best choice for himself and not what others expected or imprinted on to him. They made a difference in his mind, sure, something to check out and keep eyes on but he wasn't going to go by that as the ultimate decision. The be all, end all wasn't what he had been hoping to gun towards. Everything needed to be for the proper set-up of any future he wished to chase after to his full extent. "Not sure if a career will actually explode for me but regardless I plan on going into Law. Haven't decided if I want to be a Lawyer or an Auror but I may lean towards Lawyer, help to defend folks or help to go the path of eventually a Minister to better set some laws into place. Lots of folks go through abandonment and there needs to be more things taken into account for those kinds of people that will have a struggle starting their lives as adults, ya know?"
  19. He found that he often didn't buy in to the idea of 'The Best', it was such a weird descriptor and yet it did have its moments where it could be tacked on with 'One of' and it could be completely inline and honest about such a critique. When it came to food things were different that came into consideration for him and the taste was a major part of it but not all of it. The atmosphere in the area was certainly well balanced giving off that gentle homely feel with the air about it that it was intended to be a restaurant with class and intention to give a good foot forward in their dishes. "I gotta' reserve that kind of a claim for when I taste this food. But I'll at least spot you that it smells like a good barbecue going on here." That was something he hadn't taken part in for quite some time. "Hah, Once in a while, yea. You can't look this good and not catch the eyes of the blue." A nonchalant gaze is shifted away from Violet as he cups a hand around his chin with a playful boast of a smile. Attention settled back towards the woman as he leaned his back against the chair. "Don't mean he isn't really your Uncle. Sometimes? Blood sucks like a bad leech. Better off with the folk that take up that roll without ever feeling the need to because of their familial ties. They do it just cause they actually care about ya'." That's the kind of thing people took for granted, not that he thought she did at all. But Tyson found it important not to toss away such a thing connecting her to someone that showed a clear care for her, or for anyone really. "Now I get this image of these two young boys running around causing havoc around the hood, playing little pranks on the unsuspecting victims." A grin formed on his face as he manufactured this most likely untrue occurrence of Sal and her Father's childhood. Either way it sounds like the two of them are the close sort that it held strongly between the two of them. The menu had been clasped between his fingers as he lowered his eyes along the various choices wanting to get a good idea of what was being offered and at least the quality of quantity there had been. Selection was good and it all seemed to fit the need that his stomach was feeling on devouring it. Meat preferred for the protein build up. "Never! It's the most hard worked muscle I have." A gentle laugh expressed from him as he gave a small smile with a light hook of his right side stretching just a bit more to form a half grin. "I'm not turning down grade A treatment. That's the kind of stuff you don't come across often!" Well, he didn't, Vi had been on a different ball field than himself. It had nearly slipped his mind that she was and forever will be a public figure seen by people. Someone who had been raised up and given the chances of top service from those that enjoyed the sport with more than just a simple passion. He wondered how vastly that had changed when she was no longer capable to sit a broom? How fast did the public turn to ignoring her when she fell from the tower of fame? "First things first? Scouting out a few Universities, some have showed interest in me for a Scholarship so they're on the top of the list considering that's something I can't really pass up." That was a luxury that he couldn't afford, literally. "See what they have to offer aside from the sports aspects of things, ya' know? See what sparks my interest." As he folds up the menu he places it down and slings an arm over the upper portion of his chair and placed the other arms hand right on top of the menu. Each digit raising up and falling in a rhythmic pattern as it added something for him to think with. "Double check my savings see what I can start towards finding a place to set up roots of sorts. Somewhere to lay my head at night or on the weekends during School. Also to just have a home can't get no better than having one, Ya feel?" Not that he expected anyone to get him on that regard. "It doesn't need to be spectacular but things have to work at least decently. No point in living in a place that will end up killing me anyways. I'd want to have a place closest to where I'm going to school at but that isn't too big of a deal if I need to commute."
  20. Had there been ground rules? Even still he wasn't sure how to act or react or even what had been the circumstances that everything was moving towards. Maybe it was just a mentorship of sorts but why did the atmosphere feels as if that weren't even the case? As she spoke of the possibility of him getting into trouble a small smirk curled up on his lips that had been followed by a brief laughter. "Aye', I could end up running around the block in such an annoying and boastful way that people would start to get extremely irritated. Probably the extent of the damages I can get into." That was more of a joke, he liked to think himself mildly harmless at least in causing trouble for others. Negligent of her? This seemed like her own way of saying she wanted to spend time with him without trying to seem weird about it. "Yea, well, I appreciate ya' guardianship then." That wasn't stated in any sarcasm but rather his own sly way of accepting the proposal that she'd be around for the moment, for just a bit longer. While she opened up the door he followed behind her pressing a hand to the center of it to keep it open so that she could work fully through before they had both been outside. "That's a pretty high claim to be making, the best? You must be pretty into this place then." "To waste? Never that, this is the perfect kind of work out I'm about. I left out on my jaw day yesterday." A grin focused on Tyson face as he started to laugh a bit. Once they had entered the establishment it seemed she was more than just a regular. Which she had confirmed further while he started to sit down at the table across from the woman. "Must be pretty cool, I mean to have that kind of bond in this place. Able to have some kind of support system and grounding in the area. " His eyes started to look around the patio setup finding it having that homely appeal before looking back towards Vi. "Ya like nice after a good work out."
  21. "Oh? Yea, I guess that makes sense just remember sometimes that can be a two way bridge." Tyson brings up two fingers and twiddles them in response before lowering them. There had been a lot going on here between the two of them and he wasn't sure personally on where things began or ended for them, whether they were friends or whether she was trying to be a mentor to someone who had been similar to herself. There had been that air of attraction that seemed to sweep around her, maybe it was just the fact she was older and thus much different than most of the girls he had tended to encounter in life. There had also just been the fact he could understand someone better that had a lot of the similar if not the exact same interests, well, nearly the same interests. "Heh, I'm on it, Snarkette." He had started to head towards the showers and took a few moments. While in there he tried to get his head straight on first what he had been expecting to even happen or go on. His mind was getting a bit hyperactive in seeing the woman in a light more than he probably should which cause issues on how he probably had been acting, even he noticed that the motions he had been making around her could be classified as 'flirty' to some on many levels. Maybe even to himself considering that he had never really done well in the actual flirtation market. 'Why am I even thinking about flirting with the woman? Need to get my head in the game and straight.' There he had been in the shower thinking about someone which caused him to shake his head to toss the images and thoughts about. He needed to get out of the water it was giving too much time to drink. After fully freshening up he pressed his way out of the locker room with all of his clothing he had been working out inside of the back. He had bene wearing pretty casual clothes now, A grey T-Shirt with jeans and his sneakers. Tyson drew up closer to Violet with a smile pressed on his face. "You actually stayed, huh?" Not that he wanted her to leave. Tyson had been taken a back a bit that she did choose to stay but there had been a sense of gladness that vibrated within him that she decided to stick around. "Well, since this is your usual haunt you must know a few places around here that would be pretty good for some grub, right?"
  22. "The lines blur there don't they?" The major difference to him between confidence and cocky had been the understanding on whether 'THE' best or one of the best. It was all on central focus and if you truly believed you were top above the rest versus just carrying the air that you're a force to be reckoned with. Whether he had been both or one of them it hadn't dawned much on him. He simply just reacted and acted in ways that seemed fit to him and often it all panned out one way or another, whether it was a win or a loss he made sure to learn from them. "Learning steps, bit by bit, am I right?" A smile shined back towards her, he didn't want her to get the impression her advise wasn't unwanted or hadn't been something to think on for him. He'd give it a deeper thought than most would perhaps give him credit in doing. "But thanks, I appreciate the insight you're imparting." He figured it was the coach in her that couldn't help pop out which was something to admire, it meant that was a passion for job even while she wasn't actively doing it in the moment. There had been a few games that Tyson had played that went on for hours on end to the point that it seemed it would never have ended before scores were made. After those games he found that he rested a lot longer and had to play catch up with a lot of things he had ended up missing to better himself, like his own teaching gig for instance. But he knew enough to take responsibility for himself when it came to stepping off the field and that had been more of habit knowing no one would be around poking accountability into his mind once he had officially stepped into the very idea of adult life. If he messed up it would be costly and relying on someone and expecting them to give him the 'A-B-C's to not messing up' would have long passed by that point. "Woah, no need to get offended. I meant that I wanted your help this year that's all." It sounded as if she had taken his words in the wrong way or intention, waiting next year just wasn't something that had been apart of his plans and getting this settled now was important. After all, this was his final school year and whether or not he was going to stay in a Dormitory in a University remained to be seen. It had all been something that depended on different factors and as it stood he didn't want to, he had done it for so long he was looking for a bit more of an established place for him. Once his two or more years would be up in higher education he'd definitely need a place and he would rather not bumble around that late. "Cold, here I am trying to spend time with ya', and ya' just shrug it off." A hand pressed to his neck a she started to stretch it back and forth. "Aight well. . . If you're here or not I'll have my answer way or another, yea?" Tyson knelt down to grab up his back and gave a light nod of his head towards her before heading towards the back where the male showers had been positioned.
  23. "Yea, like. . . My fault?" Part of his speech and lingo had been from many of the musicians he had chosen to listen to in the past. People should be lucky he wasn't stuck in the age of the Harlem Renaissance, the days of Jazz and the Blues had an entirely different lingo of their own that would be even more difficult to understand. This had been the effect when many of his relatives weren't focused in Australia but came from all over, not that he spent much time with them anymore as is, especially not the ones that were confirmed Wizards or Witches. "Yeap, if it ever gets hard just think of the Muggle boxer, Mike Tyson." A chuckle escaped from him though he also didn't expect anyone to know whom that was either. It had been an observation more than an attempt to flatter but he also wasn't going to ruin the confidence that it seemed to bolster within. A persons should always take pride and purpose in the skills they held which had been a belief he fully tried to live through himself without trying to let other things complicate it. "Hahaha, the confidence of a bull, yea, I can get behind that kind of a feeling." There was a competitive spirit within the girl and he could respect those that seemed to have that fire burning within them. "Heh, I usually just try to play redirection." Meaning that when one was on his tail he'd use the other teams own body as a wall of impact and shift at the last moment to narrowly avoid the collateral damage that could occur afterwards. Though the best moments had always been when one of the beaters caught on to his idea and came as a first force to knock the ball right in the direction set it into active motion as a plan. Dangerous, risky - but you have to risk it to get the biscuit as some would say . "My skills of avoidance are typically top notch but I ain't on pro level status yet." Yet, there was still plenty of training to go, a gap to leap over to be able to be considered that talented along with the hard work he put in. "I'm on that track of the battlefield. Find I am more at war with myself than anything or anyone else. I'm always gonna be my worse enemy especially in the times of competition." Doubt, fear, consideration of what could be done in the moment or the worries of what if he messed up? Either way he knew that a lot of the problems that would prop up in performance would be his own doing and fault if he faltered. She had requested a few laps with a grin on her face and that already set a fire within himself on working off of her energy along with his own. "Slammin'. " He did a few jumping jacks and heat riser exercises while he awaited for her to finish her laps.
  24. One thing that Tyson had started to realize other than the quick way they had taken to one another's presence had been that neither of them could deny that fact. It had already moved so fast to the point that when something that fundamentally threatened the cohesion it became a noticeable gap within their connection, something that he had still been trying to figure out how to pull out of the way so that the two of them wouldn't be in such awkward positions. It wasn't so easy, however, there were too many factors to consider and think upon that disheveled everything. "Confidence and feeling myself go hand in hand! If I don't have confidence in myself how do I expect others to be confident in me?" There were always those people who tried to tell others 'They believed in them' to get the person to believe in themselves. That wasn't an issue for him and he knew a person could only firmly believe their view if you prove that very view. "Nah, I get what you mean. The truth isn't what folks care about as long as they get whatever they can out of it. Their laughs, their good feelings, their rumors." One way or another details would start to swarm about him meeting Violet if they hung around one another too often. Personally, he didn't care, but he understood the situation enough to know what was potentially at risk. "Oh, yea? Giving me permission, huh?" A snort escaped form him though an amused grin had set as an expression. "So if I didn't have permission you'd have denied helping me flat out? Nice to know, Snarkette." He chuckled at her after giving her a bit of a tease with a play on her words but he was well aware of what she was trying to advise him about and that wasn't something he was trying to make light of considering she was doing so out of being genuine. "I hear what you're saying. But I am looking on getting my footing around in place now, at least, starting that process to be more firm. Don't want to wait too long just in case and I don't wanna go rushing into it and get myself in a bigger mess than I can handle. That's if you're up to helping this year." It seemed he posed quite the conundrum for her, either to actually go or not to go. Either answer he wouldn't hold it against her each person had their own reasons for things and he'd respect that. "I'll meet you at the front afterwards then?" His hand pressed against her should as he nudged her a bit playfully, trying to add a bit of fun for the possible anxiety that may have set in. "Don't go ditching me now."
