She'd decided that she really had to get back out in the muggle world, she hadn't been in the muggle world since before she'd left her mother's care and she really was missing it. She was browsing the shelves carefully, scanning the books for one that interested her.

While his passion for reading had decreased over the years, sometimes even a good book is all he needs to escape reality. In his anxiety ridden, but bored summer, this is where he had begun to frequent. Currently, he sits between to bookshelves, wrapped deeply into a novel he had only opened to see how it was. Holy man this is good.

She'd been so busy scanning the shelves that she failed to notice the him sitting between the bookshelves and almost tripped over him "Sorry!" She yelped out as she danced around him in order to prevent her actually landing on top of him

The spell breaks. Mateo glanced up quickly than glanced down, immediately at the defensive> "Woah, almost took my head off," he says, half laughing as he does. "I know I'm a small guy but I thought I was at least visible, you know?" He puts a finger to mark his place in the book, closing it momentarily. "In all seriousness though, sorry that was my bad. Shouldn't be lounging in the middle of an aisle."

"No No it's my fault. Really should be looking where i'm going" She laughed easily taking a step back so she wasn't towering over him.

"No way. You can't blame a car for a sink hole in the road making it pop a tire." Mateo shakes his head. "Sorry, terrible analogy. But not as terrible as my reading spot." He gets up, dusting off his pants. It isn't as if that was supposed to be his intial reading spot anyways. "It's nice seeing someone my age here. I thought the age of reading had died."

"You're not wrong. Parties and social gatherings are just another way of feeling like an outsider, there's always a third fourth or fifth wheel." He grins, swinging his bent arm. "Books are inclusive." The slytherin chuckles, using what he likes to call the anytown confidence that somehow gets him through all conversations like a confident pro.

"Fourth wheel?" She smiled slightly "Wouldn't that be a little difficult? Surely if there's four people then it would dissolve into two pairs?"

"You would think, anyways." Mateo slips his hands into his pockets, shrugging. "Somehow, a pair can seem more interesting to talk to than that fourth guy. Person. Or maybe you have the unfortunate alibi that you just don't like the third wheel. Either way, it's no fun trying to talk to the backs of people."

Yesterday was not one of Vasi's best days, and it showed. Legit half of his flute class students were in a very bad mood and their mood sort of rubbed off him, his editor was pressuring him to finish his book and all he wanted to do was scream at him to chill out, and a huge wave of insomnia attacked him that night so he only had a total of three hours of sleep. The result were severe eyebags and a look that screamed 'I just climbed out of bed to get a good book and probably shut myself in for the rest of the day thanks' so here he was now, digging around for a good book to read while scowling at the rest of the world.

Theo's not sure what brought him here, but the lack of entertainment at home due to his recent arrival might have something to do with that. He was dressed to the nines, since he came here after a modeling job, and right now, he was reading a book in the middle of the library aisle, leaning against the tall bookshelves. However, this book seemed to have a rather bad plot, characters, and it wasn't enjoyable at all to Theo. So he shoved it back in it's place, while simultaneously saying a bit too loudly, "This book is sh*t."

While normally not one to mind other people, Vasi was tired to the bone and so could not hold back his urge to turn to the direction of the voice and- oh wow, he can't believe this f**king gorgeous guy just insulted a book. He scowled, aesthetically ethereal or not, nobody was allowed to insult books. Harshly critcise is ok, insulting is not. "You may be a pleasant sight for the eyes but your taste in books sure is as far from pleasant." Not the best insult he could come up with since he just complemented the dude but he really doesn't give a sh** right now.

Theo looked in the direction of this obviously needs to sleep lowkey pissed off guy, and doesn't know what to think at all. On one hand, he just complimented him, and on the other, he's picking a fight. He smiles slightly and prepares himself for this confrontation. "Me, have bad taste in books? More the books are bad." He pulls out the book he just insulted. "This book is sh*t. I'd recommend it to you so you can see for yourself, but it'll put you to your desperately needed sleep."

"Or maybe your taste in books is just as juvenile as your skills in proper criticism." He doesn't know why he's pushing the issue but there's something about this jackass that's just urging him to argue back. Vasi's hands were twitching to grab a book from the shelf to throw it at the other guy, a habit from his childhood that he thought he'd lost, but surprisingly he was able to hold himself back. "Also this is what happens when a particularly sh**ty day leaves you with three hours' worth of sleep."

"Maybe you should go back to bed instead of telling me that I can't have my own opinions on books." Theo knows he can just walk away from this, but he can't stand to be insulted, and for some reason, on this day, he seems very hot-headed. He starts messing up his hair in order to appear ugly. "This is what happens when a particularly sh*tty book leaves you with you questioning your life choices." In reality, Theo doesn't even know what he's doing anymore.

His scowl deepened, "Your opinion is bland and two-dimensional and thus not allowed to be shared to anyone, not even inanimate objects." Vasi retorted. His rational mind told him that this really wasn't worth it and he should just grab a book and walk away but something was preventing him from. The guy's next words made him growl. "Πόσο μαλάκας είσαι;" Vasi was surprised at his own words, he hasn't uttered that sentence since he left Greece. This guy really did piss him off.

Theo starts laughing sarcastically. Man, this guy is really something, isn't he? But there's this feeling of deja vu, like he's heard those words before, and in the same place too. But he ignores those feelings to retort back, "Μη γίνεσαι μαλάκας, Σταματήστε υποθέτοντας ότι άλλοι άνθρωποι δεν μπορούν να μιλούν ελληνικά και συνεπώς δεν θα μπορέσουν να σας καταλάβουν." He sighs audibly. "Και λέτε ότι η γνώμη μου είναι άχρηστη."

Oh, so he's Greek. Vasi doesn't know what to do with that tidbit of information. "스트레스를받을 때 언어를 바꾸는 것은 본능적 인 일입니다" God he wants to smack his face with a thick book and maybe punch him softly on the lips with his own. Vasi is mortified at his own train of thought and pushes them back to the void, he really needs to collapse into his bed. "당신은 당신의 의견을 가지고 태양이 비치지 않는 곳에 그것을 밀어야합니다"

Theo smirks. It's almost like he's always one step ahead of this kid. "미친새끼, 네가 그렇게 똑똑하다고 생각해." He doesn't even blink when he says, "어쩌면 그게 네 입이 될지도 몰라." That's when he just stopped. Maybe he was getting a little bit too carried away. But then again, this guy was as well, over a sh*tty book.

He may or may not have been tempted to take him up on the offer. A**hole or not, he does have a very pretty face. Vasi wisely pretended to mot have heard the, ah, more flirty second statement, hoping that the tips of his ears aren't as red as they felt. Seriously, he speaks Korean as well? What in the f**k? Well, they do say third time's the charm. "明らかに私はあなたよりスマートです。あなたは、たとえそれがあなたのおかしい面であなたに当たったとしても、良い本が何であるかを言うことさえできません。"

Oh. Well, Theo can't speak what sounds like Japanese, but it's all good, because he has his own language that hopefully can't be understood by him. "Je comprends pas ce que merde tu dis mais je m’en fous." He does a mini hairflip. "Je suis toujours mieux de toute façon."

The look on the other's face made it clear that he didn't understand Japanese. Ha, take that you unfairly visually blessed bastard. His victory was short lived when he started to hear what sounded like French. Vasi was now beginning to regret not taking those French lessons Gaeul offered him years ago. But... since the other guy doesn't understand Japanese... "正直なところ、私はあなたが言っていることを理解していませんが、あなたはまた私が言っていることを理解していないので、それは勝利です。" He started off. "しかし、あなたとあなたの不公平な美しい顔を犯す。私はあなたがそのような悪魔ではないことを望みます。"

He smiles inwardly, because despite not knowing Japanese, the other person doesn't know French, and even though he's not winning, he feels like he is. "Franchement, je parle juste des mots aléatoires, donc vous pensez que je vous insulte, mais en réalité, je le suis pas." Wow, Theo's even speaking formally, even though he know he shouldn't and doesn't have to. But he still continues on. "Vous semblez familier, comme nous l'avons déjà fait."

The bite in the other guy's words have disappeared, so Vasi isn't exactly sure if he's still insulting him or not. He does, however, manage to understand a few words that sounded close to English words but he decided to not jump to conlusions just yet. "あなたは少し親しみを感じます。私は以前に会ったように感じますが、それは不可能です。私は本で本当に悪い味の人を思い出していたでしょう。" Now that his temper had managed to cool down, Vasi held back a yawn as he buried his hands in his pockets.

He catches some words, due to being similar words in Korean, but he can't really understand what Vasi is saying. It's okay, he'll focus on his face then. "Savez-vous ce qui est triste? Que votre joli visage est axé sur l'opinion des autres sur les livres." He takes out the book that started it all, and flipped through the pages idly. "Le livre? C'est merde. Sera toujours "

The little argument they had earlier really must've taken a toll on his already exhausted body, evident by the another yawn that he, unfortunately, couldn't hold back. "あなたの綺麗な目には良い本を感謝する方法を教えるべきです。" Vasi frowned as he took out the book again. He still doesn't understand what he was saying but a sixth sense told him that he's probably insulting the book again. "あなたの口は完全に良い本を侮辱する以外に何か他のことをしているはずです。私の口に物事をするように。"

Oh, he looks cute when he yawns. Maybe Theo should step back a bit...he's absentmindedly flipping pages, but in his thoughts, trying to think of something to say. "Tu aimes dormir?" He lowkey snickers, but doesn't realize that he flip the page too hard and that the book now contains a smol rip.

Just when Vasi had calmed down from his little show of insulting a book, the rip that appeared on a page made him scowl even deeper than earlier. Insulting a book was one thing, ripping it was another, much more heinous crime. "Πρώτα προσβλητικά βιβλία, τώρα τα παραβιάζουν; Δεν έχει κανείς να σας διδάξει πώς να φροντίζει σωστά τα βιβλία;" He moved over to gently take the book from the other's hands their hands may or may not have brushed, he isn't sure, examining the tear closely. It was small, yes, but it's still damage and that was unacceptable.

He tries switching to Greek as well, but instead he speaks with a mix of English and Greek. "ήταν ατύχημα, okay? Literally just chill. Είναι απλώς ένα βιβλίο. " He sounds annoyed. It's not like he murdered the book, it was one small, tiny, rip. But of course, pretty boy that's booksexual had to get mad over that.

He glared viciously at him, throwing his little crush out of the window he didn't really, his stupid brain wants to keep that pretty face in his potential partners list mhmm. "Αν κουράσω το λαιμό σας επειδή δεν ήμουν προσεκτικός, θα θεωρούσε αυτό και ως ατύχημα;" He deadpanned, looking absolutely done. "After all... Είναι μόνο ένας λαιμός."

Theo leans in dangerously close to Vasi's neck, and says, "Νομίζω ότι τα χέρια σας θα καταλήξουν πρώτα σε κάποιο άλλο μέρος του σώματός μου." And with that said, he stood up straight and turned on his heel to walk away.

His ears totally didn't burn red because he was flustered, they burned red because he was furious. Vasi glared daggers into the retreating back while carefully setting back the book in its proper place. "Ναι, σε ένα από τα χέρια ή στα πόδια σου, προετοιμάζω να τα σπάσω." Vasi shot back, because he refused to let that jackass have the last laugh. He needed to go home as well, so he picked out another book and headed for the opposite direction.

Serpentine was seated in the very corner of Croydon Central Library with a book about wiccans in her lap as she sipped happily from what appeared to be a bottle of water with a couple slices of lemon floating around inside. She looked incredibly out of place due to her rock aesthetic and often had glances and stares tossed her way.

Serpentine gasped in surprise and nearly had a heart attack, hence why her fist was grabbing at the place where her heart is. "Goodness!" She turned around so that her knees dug into the chair as she peered at him with a grin. "You caught me. I've been a hippy all along." She rested her chin on the chair and watched him with a bemused glint in her blue eyes, glad to see he hadn't left yet. "How are you doing?"
