[Phone - No filters, because he really has no idea how that works]

Since I know there are a lot of you who are older than I am, I guess I'll go ahead and ask.  Miss Susan brought up a topic during class that reminded me of home, or a certain person from home.  I know it's not unusual to miss people you consider your friends, but when I was brought here to Mayfield, I was in a really precarious situation.  It's likely I wasn't going to live to see anyone again, but despite that, today I felt a lot more strongly than usual that I want to go home, just on the chance that I'll be able to see them again.  Is that an odd feeling, considering the circumstances?

[After his call, Arslan decides to head down to the park for a while.  You can find him on a bench alternating between working on school assignments, and scribbling in a notepad in another language.  For those who know it, it's Farsi, and he seems to be concentrating on writing it that way instead of in English.   For those who don't know the language, it will probably either look like squiggles, or a middle eastern language, and you can feel free to misunderstand it as you will.]

[[Theta didn't respond to Arslan's phonecall, feeling rather confused and even somewhat upset by it. As such, she decided to go on a walk. She sits down on the end of the bench, not realising that this is the same young man from the phonecall. She looks over at what he's writing and frowns, but doesn't say anything. Roachi, however, decides that he looks interesting, and hops off of her shoulder and onto the back of the bench, walking closer to him.]]

[The walking bug-thing will get Arslan's attention even more than the person sitting down next to him, who he vaguely recalls speaking with once before, but was going to leave alone since they hadn't said anything, so he had assumed they just wanted to sit. He'll watch Roachi, aware of the fact it's not a normal roach.]

Is... he yours?

Hmm? [[She spots the exploring roach and picks it up.]]

Yes, this is Roachi. He's decidedly curious.

I see. He isn't an actual bug it looks like, either.

No, he's a clockwork. I made him myself.

[[She offers out the clockwork for him to inspect.]]

Clockwork?

[Arslan leans in, not sure about touching, and examines him]

He's...powered by winding a spring, is what that means.

I see. And you made him? I don't know much about the process, but he seems well-crafted.

Of course he's well crafted. I made him myself. I'm....one of the best.

[[Roachi squirms loose and crawls up her arm nuzzling against her neck. She pets it affectionately. It seems to be a friend more than an item.]]

[Arslan watches faintly. He can understand that somehow.]

...So what is that gibberish you're squiggling down..?

It's not actually gibberish. It's Farsi, my native language.

Farsi? Where are you from?

You could always have the hope that they will arrive in this crummy place as well.

I'm not sure I'd like that...

Why not? It is easier to get through these ordeals with good company.

Yes, but... This place isn't very nice, right? I don't wish them to get into that sort of trouble.

You're kind to think of your friends like that. Do you think they are doing any better with you gone though?

Whether I was there or not would unfortunately not change their location. My Father had ordered them to remain with him and none of us could go against his command.

No way! It's not strange at all to feel that way.

And even if the situation you were in was bad, that doesn't mean it was hopeless. There's always a chance things'll change, right?

True. I hope that it will turn out alright when I return.

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON?

[Arslan shakes his head a little]

I'm just trying to collect my thoughts, so not really working on anything.
