"That's not too far from here..." She muttered to herself.
No. Go eat. He said suddenly, causing her to scowl.
"I didn't ask for your opinion." she replied, now staring vacantly at the TV's, not really seeing them. An older man passed by her, giving her a puzzled look as he heard her muttering to herself. He shook his head, his drooping mustache waving around at the motion. damn crazy kids he thought, shoving his hands in the pockets of his coat and speeding up his stride, making as much distance between himself and the girl as he possibly could.
You can go see what happened later-right now you need to eat. He insisted. Jayx growled in protest. Look, even if you disregard my advice and instead attempt to go over there, you'll likely pass out on your way, and I can't do anything when you're lying unconscious on the sidewalk-at night- in the middle of a busy city. Jayx sighed, knowing He was right.
"Fine. What do you suggest I do?" She asked irritably, "I hardly have any money at all-and I'm not seeing any restaurants-"
There's a noodle place right over there-looks cheap enough. Jayx glowered as she glanced down the street to see there was in fact a ramen shop only a few stores away.
"What's that smell?" She muttered, wrinkling her nose.
It doesn't matter, it's still food and you still need to-
"Yeah, I know, I know! Will you shut up already, you've already won-i'm goin!" She said beginning to walk towards it. There were much more people congregating in this area of the city, though it had thinned out immensely compared to how it was during the day.
Someone has to look out for your well-being if you wont.
"Oh just go away!" She spat angrily.
Fine. He said as she entered the small establishment. Her eyes glanced up at the menu, then at the small advertisement sign on the counter which had been hand-made and brightly colored, reading: "Try our new Rainbow Noodles". There were three people near the counter-one of them a person Jayx recognized as Xavier Wallace-he was in her year; she didn't mind him too much-he was, after all, one of the few people who didn't assume she was a dim-wit incapable of speech-they had even had a whole conversation once...about snails, oddly enough...but it was still the most interaction someone had willingly had with her in awhile and she appreciated his effort, despite the rumors going around the school about her unstable sanity. He was currently having some sort of heated discussion with the man behind the counter, who couldn't look happier-and in front of her was another customer-she recognized him too as another High School student-though she couldn't place his name. After he had ordered the man turned his attention on her, and she opened her mouth to order, the Rainbow Noodles still on her mind...
Don't. Get what he got.
Jayx sighed, exasperatedly.
"I'll have whatever he just got." She said, motioning to the other customer. She then hopped up onto a seat at the corner of the counter, then began to fiddle with the chopsticks that had already been placed there-removing them from their paper package and separating them, frowning as the broke uneven.
I'm just not having any luck today, am I? She mused as she set the chopsticks down, placing her elbow on the counter, her head resting on her hand, and waited impatiently, her thoughts drifting back to the Shopping District...
