PostSubject: Fishing Trip   Fri Mar 06, 2015 8:43 pm

The sky was a clear bright blue today, the clouds all white with the sun shining down. I was laid out on a blanket stretched across the sandy shore of Crystal Lake, a book in my hand getting almost all of my focus. What remained was focused on the fishing rod I had stuck up in the sand. The lure remained still, I wondered if I would actually manage to catch something today after the last week of failure.

Brant held the bare hook in front of his face and frowned. For the third time this morning it was painfully devoid of a fish, or even an eel. His stomach grumbled, reminding him of his failure once more. He flopped backwards and tossed his rod away, cursing loudly. "Where the hell are the fish!" He yelled a bit more for good measure and pounded his fists on the grass, leaving dimples in the ground. Panting he jumped back to his feet and picked up the discarded rod. he reached into his bait bag and pulled a wriggling worm out. With his tongue between his teeth Brant carefully placed it on, the buggers had a bad habit of wriggling off the hook if not placed right. He cast the lone back out and sat back down, rod grasped firmly in his hands and a determined look on his face.

I hadn't noticed anyone else in the area so when another kid starting yelling about his poor luck with the fish I almost dropped my book on my face. Sitting up I took a look around and about two hundred feet down the shore was a boy with orange hair sticking his tongue out as he re-baited his line. My book would wait for now, it wasn't often I got to see other people out here so I put my hand in the air and waved at him.

Crystal Lake was more than likely the most familiar place on the Ark to the young female, afterall the very lake itself was once her backyard. Many hours a day she spent alongside her Mother Reiki fishing these very waters for dinner and at night they'd both sit under the stars beside a fire eating their catch of the day while waiting for the lake to illuminate like it's name suggests.

As usual Rue had fallen asleep upon a dirt mound, dreaming of  flying like a bird in the clouds, free as can be. A peaceful dream that was broken when some big mouthed kid disturbed her in dream flight complaining about the lack of fish. Somewhat annoyed Rue brushed the dirt from her backside and approached the sound of the commotion where she spotted an orange haired boy attempting to what looked like fishing while two hundred feet away another boy did the same. With a chuckle Rue immediately sat down and shuffled closer to the orange haired boy with a massive smile on her face ''You know making so much noise will scare away the fish and keep fishing the way that you are and you won't be eating for at-least another day.'' she said to the boy so plainly as if she knew him. Rue peered over the boys shoulder noticing the other one who had waved earlier. ''Don't just sit there, fishing requires teamwork, come join us!'' she called inviting the boy over to the fishing spot she had only just rudely invited herself to.

Brant gave the girl a flat stare as she sat down next to him. He didn't much appreciate being told that he was doing it wrong, it was even worse she told him he'd go hungry again. How did she know he'd spent all his money again? "I don't think fish are really smart enough to get scared. The ones I've seen are all pretty blank faced." He studied the girl's face for a moment trying to determine if he knew her, she'd certainly acted as if she knew him. He thought he'd seen her a few times at the academy over the years but couldn't put a name to her face. "Who are you anyway?"

Rue couldn't help but laugh at the boys comment about fish, her knowledge on such things didn't really strike as common though so she understood not everyone had learnt to live the way she had. Rue tilted her head to the side for a brief moment studying the boy ''Fish aren't as stupid as you might think my friend, have you ever thought those blank faces are no more than an illusion used to throw off fisherman into thinking they're easy pray while in reality they're devising plans to take your bait with a clean get-away'' she said patting him on the head. ''In the food chain Fish are eaten by bigger fish, in life big people hold authority over little people. So I ask you this, how do the little people end up better off than those that use brute-force?...'' she said with a brief pause for dramatic effect. ''With cunning!'' she finally added. Forgetting her manners Rue reached out and grabbed the boys hand and firmly shook it ''I'm Rue, closet Hermit and aspiring Ninja, nice to meet you...?'' she bellowed with a slight wink of her eye.

Brant couldn't really help it and he didn't mean for it to happen, but his mouth dropped open as the girl started speaking and stayed open after she finished. He closed it and opened it again searching for something to say. She'd shaken his hand, who even did that? Adults did that. Old people did that. Eventually he managed to find his voice, for all the good it did him. "What?" He scratched his head and ruffled his hair, he did have manners. Sometimes. "I'm Brant. i think i saw you at the academy a few times." he may have seen her but he was sure he would have remembered a girl who knew so much about fish.

As I walked over I couldnt help but chuckle a little at how dumbfounded the boy seemed with his dropped jaw. By the time I managed to finally fold my blanket into my backpack and store my book the introductions were already made so I went ahead and announced myself. "And my name is Gil, nice to meet ya. And I'd hope you recognize her, our classes shared the same room just at different times." I'd offer my hand out to the girl with a smile on my face, "you're knowledge of fish is amazing, doesn't sound like anything in my books."

Rue watched as Brants mouth gaped open widely in shock, confused Rue used the opportunity to lean closer and look inside his mouth invading his personal space. Never before had she seen inside another boys mouth.. so far the experience was strange though she smelt something funny when he released a breath as he spoke. It wasn't exactly bad breath but it was something along those lines. Fortunately for her Gilbert finally joined the conversation saving the moment from becoming awkward, Rue's social skills still lacked. "Nice to meet you both Brant and Gil" she said taking Gil's hand and firmly shaking it. "I'm pretty sure I saw you both at the academy in passing as well though I'm not surprised you didn't see me Brant, I don't really enjoy being the center of attention and often I avoided interacting with others" she said with a shrug. Rue noticed the book in Gil's hand when he mentioned it and with a smirk she replied "Some things are best learnt by trial and error rather than from the pages of a book, if you'd both like I can help you catch some fish? Then when the sun goes down we can cook and eat and wait for the lake to light up?" She said over excitedly. That was a tradition for her and her Mother but these two both looked hungry and she wanted to show them both the beauty of Crystal Lake.

Brant was very, very lost. He didn't think he understood a single thing that was happening. Now there was another boy here who seemed to know him and he still had no idea who anyone was. They would probably think worse of him if he told them his days in the academy were spent with his head in the clouds. Imaging dangerous adventures on a cursed land were much more entertaining than anything the instructors taught. But, the girl had offered to help him catch fish and for Brant that was enough to make him pull his A game. He flashed her a bright smile and took her hand again. "Of course, i remember you now Rue! How could i forget? You always sat in that er...that chair by the window, you not liking being the center of attention and all" He grinned and ruffled his hair once more. Suave wasn't really his strong point but by gosh he'd give it a try if it got him a meal tonight. "So catching fish? What am i doing wrong?" he paused for effect and squeezed her hand ever so slightly. "Do i need to be more, gentle?" The last was said with what he hoped was a smoldering look. he'd seen others do it before and thought he pulled it off alright. Chances were he was squinting at her though. The things he did for a meal.

The other boy's attempt to be smooth was just terrible, when he asked about being more gentle I just sighed and placed my hand over my face. But Rue had managed to remind me of something I had forgotten, the crystals of crystal lake. "I'd be more than happy to look at the lights. Never actually seen them myself before so it should be fun." I would then start setting my things out again, not bothering with the blanket since we were standing on grass rather than sand.
