Gemini: Zodiacs

Gemme sat on the bench, looking around at the other people that were milling around them at lunch. She had met a few new people, all of them like herself. Ike came to sit next to her, his bright red hair shining in the sun, just like her golden hair did. "What's wrong?" He murmured, wrapping a hand round her sister; but he didn't wait for an answer, knowing she didn't like to talk. "Oh. Well, meeting new people isn't that bad." She looked up at him dubiously, an eyebrow raised. He laughed. "Okay. Yeah. For me, it's easier. For you... I know." He stuttered awkwardly.

She looked up, noticing the boy from earlier. "Hey! It's your boyfriend!" Ike chimed before Gemme lifted a hand, gracefully hitting him round the back of the head. Once again, Ike burst out laughing; "It was worth it." He thought.

Gemme let out a sigh, pushing her brother off the bench. "Oh go chat up some girls." She growled quietly. Ike let out a small bubble of laughter before he got up, moving toward Leo. "Hey, Leo right? So, what brings you to Rosewood?" He smoothly placed his hands in his pockets, rocking back and forth on his heels. Gemme rolled her eyes and looked to the floor, studying her shoes intently while she tried not to make eye-contact with anyone.

She took another marshmellow out of its bag, squeezing it twice before popping it into her mouth. "Fluffy, light and oh so nice." She thought, a smile appearing on her lips as she ate another one. She let out a deep sigh, taking the ribbon from her arm she tied up her hair again, looking up to the sky. "I hate meeting new people. But... they're like me. So I'm not a freak, right?"
