Warnings: None yet
Ren waited with his hands in his pockets for the elevator to come down. His headphones were on and his iPod was attached to a band on his arm he normally used when running. He looked up at the numbers as they counted down toward the fourth floor. He wasn't working today until the later shift at the theme park which was fine with him, although he'd probably regret it when it got to be later that night. Maybe he'd go get a drink tonight after work and get some of the taste of artificial happiness out of his mouth.
"Eight, seven, six, come on." He was feeling impatient for some reason. It felt like if he stayed in one place too long something would catch him, or catch up with him. Like a question asked him on the stairs between the third and fourth floors. Mirza had asked him if he liked boys, and Ren had been doing his best to avoid thinking about the question. Why ask him that? Was it because of how he looked: thin and Asian? There were girls out there who liked that. He had never met any in particular, but he knew they were out there, somewhere.
"Four finally," He muttered as he waited for the doors to open he sighed and tried to move his thoughts away from the annoying question and his own internal analysis of it that was making him feel uncomfortable. The music wasn't helping him drown out the thoughts as much as he hoped it would. He needed to keep focused. He had some work he wanted to touch up for his portfolio before he wanted to give it to Mr. Gregory and he needed to talk to Vincent..er..Mr. Laurent about the storyboard job he had mentioned.
The doors opened and he stepped inside with his hair in front of his face covering his glasses making it difficult to see much and he automatically pushed the button for the ground floor.
