Week Six : Sunday
Who: Davia and Rafe
When: Early Sunday Afternoon
Where: Terrene Common Room
What: Chess is not a solitary game
The weekends were always the worst. There were no classes, no club meetings, to distract her. It was so much easier being here during the week. She had a routine. Wake up, get ready, go to class, go back to her room. It worked for her. That was how she liked it. Davia was not, after all, a very sociable person. She didn't even know how to be. But she was attempting to make a conscious effort to change, it was just turning out to be a slow process.
This Sunday, however, was an improvement from the last. She was not going to sit in her room all day, hiding away in her bed behind some books. Though she might not make it much further, she had at least made it as far as the common room where she sat in a chair positioned on one side of a chess board, looking down at the knights and rooks and pawns. This was a game she knew how to play. Her father had taught her and she was rather good at it, though she had only ever played against him.
With a sigh, one long leg crossed over the other as a hand brushed back through blond hair. Her aqua eyes scanned the room around her with mild curiosity and moderate boredom. She recognized a few people in the house from her classes, but there was no one that honestly stuck out in her mind just yet. Names were never something that she was good at keeping track of. Faces she could remember, but not the names that went with them.
Her attention soon moved back to the chess pieces, her hand reaching out to take a pawn in hand and thumb the figure lightly. She placed it back down, making the first move though she had no opponent and she certainly wasn't planning on playing by herself. It was more of an invitation though she honestly didn't expect anyone to notice nor to accept if they did.
