Open A spot of frog catching

It might have seemed a bit odd to be outside while it was raining, but Kairi didn't care. It cleared his mind sometimes, and others, well he just liked the smell that came with this sort of weather. He was still trying to figure out what his parents expected him to do and what they meant by not drawing attention to himself. With a sigh, Kairi placed his hand into the pocket of his heavy winter coat and pulled out a jar. It was probably a bit of an off-handed thing for a fifteen-year-old to be looking for frogs, but he had always been interested in the little creatures. Plus, what was the harm in just catching them to look at them for a bit and then put them back?

After making sure that his gloves were secure in his pocket, he pushed up his sleeves before getting absorbed in his task. If someone were to sneak up on him, it would be pretty unlikely that he would notice, because of his general focus on the matter at hand. "Whenever you are feeling lonely and afraid, the time will pass away on you, so many times you feel like losing to the pain, and you try to fade away..." Kairi hummed along to the song that played through his adapted mp3 player, which resided in an inner pocket of his coat where it was safe. Since the holidays he had been listening to all the songs that he had been missing for a while and he was just rediscovering his love for music the same way he was rediscovering his love for frogs.

Max really disliked the winter, the cold, the rain, the wind. She hated almost everything about that season, but for some reason the two people she liked the most were both from cold countries and both enjoyed the winter, but at least one of them would keep her warm at night. She walked to the lake under her umbrella, she wanted to go to town and get something nice to make dinner, but she ended up being distracted. The lake was as it always was, an amazing place that brought amazing memories. She couldn’t stop thinking of one of the best things that happened to her, how happy it made her feel and it warmed her heart, and yet, at the same time she was scared.

She stood under a tree before noticing someone, as far as she could tell he had a jar? What was he doing with a jar? Regardless, it didn’t matter. She watched him from afar until a playful smirk started to grow on her lips as they curled, showing a rather mischievous look on her face. Her eyes followed the boy before her hands touched the water. She wanted a quick water jet to spray on the young boy’s face, it would be enough to play a little with him, whoever he was.

The ring she had on her finger was perfect for a situation like that, all she had to do was thinking about being invisible. She had cast the first prank and shortly after the power of the ring turned her invisible, and everything she was touching with her hands. Max decided to stay put on the same place, she could do another spell like that from that location, and he wouldn’t even see who is the perpetrator of this, not so awful, yet, wet prank.

The icy water hurt the open, injured skin on Kairi’s palms. His skin went raw and funny in the cold this meant he had to have his hands dressed again, but he thought he could deal with it for now. The only factor that kept him moving was the fact that different weather was better for other animals, anyway. He was banking on the fact that some frogs took advantage of certain conditions, anyway. That didn’t take his health into account, though, but he felt like he would be all right. Plus, with both things, neither of them seemed like they could decide. Expect, did health and nature even have a mind of their own? Kairi rolled his eyes and exhaled at himself. He was one of those types that started doing one thing and concluded with his brain asking such questions as this.

Kairi was distracted by his search and the music that came through his headphones. The thought of the question and the idea made him want to laugh, though he didn’t because he thought that would have been weird. This was why he hadn’t expected to get a face full of water. An unexpected shout escaped his mouth, and he lost his footing, falling backwards onto the muddy bank. For half a second he believed he might have gotten it from a fish of some sort. But that idea seemed kind of daft. A fish wouldn’t do that unless he had caught it, or he’d accidentally hit it, right? He was sure that he did neither, though. Kairi was a little spooked and looked around as he tried to figure out what was going on.

“Hello?” He called out in confusion.

Max watched the other student, she tried to laugh but if she made any noise, he could find her, and her little secret, only one person besides her knew and she planned to keep it that way. She continued to look at him but the way he fell on the muddy bank only made her want to laugh even harder, what should she do? Hide behind the tree and remove her ring? Pretending like she had no idea what was happening? She had already enjoyed watching him get sprayed, confused and now dirty for falling, she couldn’t ask for more. Could she?

Against everything she hid behind the tree and became visible again, she leaned against the wood and counted to three, before peeking her head out like nothing had happened. “Hello?” she showed herself, ending the prank, if she continued someone could get sick, the weather wasn’t the best, and it was cold. “Seems like you ran into a bit of a … situation.” She pointed at him, giving no hint that she had been the perpetrator. “You look like you need some help.” She approached him, extending one of her hands for him to take. She was sure she had seen him before, she just couldn’t place him.

“I’m Maxine Williams, people call me Max.” She opted to introduce herself, it was always better to be on first name basis with people. It took a while to hit her, but she wondered why he was there, doing what in that terrible weather, all she wanted was to be back home cuddling on the couch and keeping herself warm. “It’s a strange activity to do in this weather, whatever you were doing.” She commented. She was visibly confused.

Kairi wanted to crawl under a rock and never come out, he was already well aware of the fact that he was unsteady on his feet because of the impairment to his hearing. But he hadn’t fallen this badly in quite some time, which aside from being half scared out of his mind, made him wonder if his balance was getting worse. Kairi finally looked down at his mud stained clothes and felt uncomfortable due to its feeling. He wasn’t beyond getting messy but this was just ridiculous.


Kairi looked up at the sound of a female voice. He kind of wished this situation wasn’t happening, especially with him looking so messed up. “I slipped, something startled me.” He didn’t go into many details when he made his statement. Kairi didn’t know what had happened, so he didn’t want to seem like he was extremely odd. “Yeah, thanks.” He said taking the girl up on her offer of help. He let go of her hand with a quick but gentle ease once he was sure that he was steady on his feet. Looking down at his hands, Kairi realised that he had a few small cuts on his hands, it appeared as though he must have cut them on a rock or something. He moved away for a second and emptied the jar of frogless water on his hands to clean them off and access the damage and he dried his hands off on one of the clean tissues that he found in his pocket.


“Nice to meet you.” Kairi wrapped one of the dry tissues around his hands to stop them from bleeding, which was a bit of a hindrance. He recognised Max from some of his classes, but that was about it. “Kairi Taylor.” He supplied as he made his name sign if a little clumsily yet quickly. This comprised the Japanese word for diverge (his name meaning divergence), and then the sign for tailor. Kairi flushed a little at Max’s comments. He’d known that he had probably looked a little strange. “I was trying to see if I could find any frogs to look at.”
