Who: Reina, Daichi
What: The optimism/pessimism version of an unstoppable force meeting an unbreakable wall.
Where: Outside the dorms.
When: After school.
It was remarkable for quickly Reina had bounced back. She'd been out of things for a few hours, but as soon as she'd got started asking teachers what she'd missed she'd found a rhythm of sorts. She moved with her obligations, going to classes, going to library committee meetings, keeping her head down and gathering as many normal person things to do as she could.
And it helped. The structure supported her and once she started and gained momentum everything became easier. She'd started to plan, to make sure she could structure everything around a shadow nest if one came up. They seemed a lot more survivable when she started making plans to go to the grocery shop after them, as if a two-for-one deal on curry roux at LABOR would give her the strength she needed to fight. And maybe it would. It wasn't bad curry.
The school wouldn't let the Gardening Club at its own immaculate gardens, naturally, but they'd arranged for a discount on renting an allotment on the island. It had advantages - it meant that she didn't need to be doing gardening in her school uniform, for a start. She was significantly less tidy than normal, covered with dirt and sweat as she made her way back to the dorms. Seeing Daichi, she waved, smiling.
