Tamara hits the floor with a smack and glares up at Noelle, then at Tobi "Excuse me?!" She starts standing up, clearly frustrated and annoyed.

Noelle stands frozen for a moment, unable to react. After a solid few seconds, she tries to help but Tamara just ignores her and decides to let her discomfort known "Jesus, watch where you're going! I could have broken something!"

Surely she was exaggerating, but that didn't stop Noelle from shrinking back into her mousey persona "It... It was an accident..."

Tamara whirls around to Noelle "Don't apologize for him."

Tobi's face is rapidly falling back to it's normal long-suffering look. He shakes out his coat in the hallway and tucks it underneath his arm neatly. His stare is turned on the freshman, eyes colder than ever.

"Now now, ain't no need ta' get your knickers in'a twist. Accidents happen." He drawls low.

"Whatever." Tamara pushes past the two of them, muttering words like "Spazz" and "Freak" under her breath. Noelle's eyes follow Tamara, frowning. She doesn't meet Tobi's eyes and says a soft "Sorry about that..."

Noelle hears what Tamara says, and she isn't surprised. Those are words she has heard these words throughout her whole life. What stung was that Tobi had witnessed it.

"Aint'cha fault." Tobi murmurs. "Aint'cha fault." He repeats, softer this time and almost to himself. He shakes out his hair, casting droplets of water across the floor. The motion knocks his glasses loose and they fall back to settle on the bridge of his nose.

He tilts his head up, posture proud and alert. There's a fire in his eyes, something wild like the forests he grew up in. "Aint'cha fault some folks are bigited cusses." He says, loud and firm.

Noelle is surprised by the confidence in Tobi's voice, and his eyes frighten her. Yet, she found herself envious. She smoothed out her ponytail and looks away "I don't think it's because... well, you know... I think it's just because I'm all around... strange. And I act strangely. It's okay... But thank you."

She nods her head down the hall "I'm gonna get changed. Do you want to meet back here?"

Thunder rumbles in the sky overhead. Tobi turns away from the door to look at her. Noelle looks defeated, almost resigned. Her eyes cast down at the floor, she looks every bit as insecure and unsure of herself as she did when he first met her.

Just like that, he deflates. His posture eases back into a soft slouch, arm still tucked around his wet jacket. He nods in answer to her question.

"I'll be back in a hop and a skip, don't be going out there without me." He says before turning to leave for his own dorm.

Noelle watches him leave and trudges to her room. She quickly changes into some new jeans, a thick and wooly sweater, and a grey raincoat. She grabs her umbrella, which is black and leaning against her bed. She looks around sheepishly. Tamara probably won't be back until the morning. And Noelle wasn't going to be out for that long. She crouches down behind her hamper, and with a soft click she opens the door of a small kennel. A little black cat with extra toes walks out sheepishly. Noelle picks it up and holds it close to her for a moment. Noelle smiles and relaxes, and puts the cat down carefully. She then pulls out two bowls from her top drawer, as well as a small bag of cat food. Noelle carefully pours some food into one of the bowls and puts it down, where and the cat pads over, sniffing. Noelle goes to her desk and opens a bottle of water that sits atop. She pours its contents into the other bowl. "Now, be good... I could get into a lot of trouble." Noelle scratches the cats head, hangs up her wet clothing, and exits her room, going to the front door to wait for Tobi. She was feeling and looking considerably more calm.

Tobi exits his dorm with a soft click as the door shuts behind him. The brand new jeans his sister had bought him as well as the sweater she had made him is doing wonders for his mood. He's towel dryed his hair as best he can, but it's still a mess. The gold rimmed glasses are once again pushed up into his hair keeping the worst out of his eyes and he's slid a slicker coat over his shoulders.

A pop and a hiss opens his umbrella. It's dark green and emblazoned with the national parks services logo; another gift from his sister. Tobi makes his way over to Noelle's dorm. He spots her standing at the front and waves as he comes closer.

Noelle nods silently, and opens her umbrella promptly, and strolls towards him. She starts walking next to him at a brisk pace, hoping he would take the lead.

Noelle watches as the rain hits the buildings, water sliding off the roofs. Suddenly, the sky is bright with lightning bolts that chase each other across the grey sky. She silently counts to herself. One. Two. Three. Four. Five. A low rumble of thunder is heard and she smiles to herself.

Tobi waits until their together then sets off at a slow, wandering pace. He doesn't really have a destination in mind. There's no hurry to his steps, nor any discomfort in the way the autumn chill of the rain seeps just slightly through his sweater. He's watching the rain drip from the rim of the umbrella in a soft steady 'plunk, plunk' and the lighting past that. His face holds no worry about the lighting; he instead looks up at the bright flashes with interest.

He's enjoying the quiet walk in the rain with Noelle. He enjoys her company, and her ease with silence. Or at least, he hoped it was ease. He was never really sure when people were okay with a lack of conversation, having only his sister as a benchmark for years, and that really wasn't a fair comparison. He wonders how she's doing, should probably text her soon.

Noelle follows the pace deftly. She looks at him, silently, then back to her surroundings. A small chipmunk races up the trunk of a nearby tree, and Noelle smiles a little bit. She then notices some cat hair on her jeans and quickly brushes it away.

Noelle continues to look around her, observing.

Tobi feels the rain around him, listens to the driving pour of rain, and any tension inside him leaves. He feels that gentle pull into the world and suddenly there he is, feeling everything, seeing everything. The rain dripping through the trees, the smell of wet Earth and grass, the chipmunk climbing up the nearby tree. Tobi's eyes fall closed, and he's led more by instinct than sight, reveling in the sensations around him.

It was always strange to feel his own footsteps on the ground below him, but he tries not to think about it too much. Rustling draws his attention to Noelle who's brushing something off her pants.

"Did'ja kick up some mud?" Tobi hums without opening his eyes.

Noelle notices that Tobi's eyes had closed. He must have been connecting with the environment. Noelle begins to wonder what it would be like to connect to your environment so intimately like that.

His voice surprises her. At this point, they had been walking in silence for at least 10 minutes. She blinks and blushes "Uh no... It's some... Dirt. From my room. Because they were on the floor."

She knows the lie was unconvincing. But she didn't know if she should tell an RA about the cat she was hiding illegally in her room.

Tobi looks over at her. "Uh huh." He murmurs, but doesn't say anything more for a couple minutes.

"Personally, I'd keep that room free'a dirt." He finally says. "At least every second Friday a' the month. Your RA's a stickl'r for cleanliness."

With that he closes his eyes once more, keeping the easy pace.

"Yeah. I keep things clean for the most part. I'll watch out for it." Noelle walks in silence, thinking intensely. Her first classes were tomorrow.

He nods. The rain's letting up slightly, but still coming down at a pretty even pace. Tobi thinks about the next day, the next week of classes. He'd already had meetings with his professors and grouped up with his study group, it's already off to such a fast pace. He feels just a twinge of exhaustion already creeping in, and classes hadn't even officially begun yet.

He chooses not to dwell on it. "Class starts tommorra'." He comments. "It's excitin', first year."
The evening's getting dark.

"I'm excited to focus on something besides just being here. I want to start writing something. Anything." Noelle's voice is tinged with longing. "Do you have a heavy class load?"

The rain lets up a bit, and they pass a small wooded area. The trees sway in the wind gently.

"Ah, I feel that. Tired of bein' treated with kid gloves, wanna actually start somethin'." He agrees. His eyes open to stare at nothing in particular. He blinks once and he's back to the present, mind moving forward in his own body.

He sighs at the question and looks up. "Always do. PreMed idn't know to be a relaxin' course. Been meetin' with people between getting all you settled in. It's wearin' my boots thin, what with all this runnin' round."

"You said English major today, right?" He asks, looking over.

"Yeah. Concentration in Children's Literature." She says, sheepishly. Noelle doesn't really like talking about what she is studying, so she tries to change to subject "Premed? Do you want to be a doctor?"

To be honest, Tobi didn't strike her as a classic doctor. Imagining him in a small exam room was almost somber.

"Mmhm," he hums in response, then pauses. "Well, not quite I guess. Paramedic really, wanna go help in forest search and rescue, be one of those first responder types, you know?" He nods, more to himself. His hair bounces with the movement. "Figure'd it was the place I could do the most good."

Noelle smiled. That sounded like Tobi "That sounds like a perfect match for you... That's great."

Tobi would go out and help people. That would be perfect.

4:00 PM

Noelle sits in the sunny front lounge of the Library. The window is to the ceiling, letting in the sunlight and good weather. Noelle has a large stack of books near her, and she reads. Her afternoon class was canceled, so this was a perfect time for some light reading. Her hair is down, and she wears a black dress with grey leggings. She is curled up in her seat, snuggly.

Tobi walks along the sidewalk outside. He's dressed in a fitted athletic tank top that stretches across his broad shoulders as well as athletic pants that fit him better than any of his other clothes. The clothes are color coordinated in matching colors and seem more like a uniform than anything else. He's carrying a duffel bag with his jacket stuffed between the top straps of the bag. It swings against his legs as he walks with a dull thump. His hair is slightly damp and sweaty, as is the uniform he's wearing. He seems sore and a little worn out, but perfectly fine in all other respects.

He walks past the large front window of the library, looking inside as he passes. He doesn't seem to be looking for anyone or anything in particular, but as soon as he sees Noelle, he stops and raises his hand in a little wave.

Noelle looks up and flashes him an annoyed look that is not directed to him. She's still frustrated by Winter and her comments. She also didn't expect Tobi to walk in and talk to her

"Well tha's odd..." He mumbles to himself as he sees Noelle glare at him through the window. His hand folds in on itself as he aborts his little half wave and comes to rest on the strap of his duffel bag. His expression tilts into one of confusion.

'And I thought we were gettin' long just peachy.' he thinks.
