PostSubject: Peace and Quiet and Nosy Students [Raivis][Complete]   Mon Sep 05, 2011 6:38 pm

When the headmaster had announced that he had created a place for the foreign exchange students to hang out together, Lovino himself had vowed to never go there. He had been of the mind that it would be crowded and packed tight, making it almost literally his worst nightmare. All of those people, talking and trying to grab his attention, leaving him unable to relax or run away, he thought it would have been horrible.

Then he had learned that no one went inside the common room, leaving it bare and letting it gather dust. He didn't quite understand this, but it left him with a nice, quiet place to relax in, with no one to bother him and almost no chance of being bothered. Apparently everyone else had thought the same as him and had wanted nothing to do with the large crowds that were bound to be every where in the room.

Peeking into the actually very nicely arranged room - which he hadn't expected, given the way most of the other common rooms were arranged in this place - he smirked in satisfaction to see that no one was there. He nodded to himself and went inside and settled himself into the corner of the room, spreading all of his books out on the table and getting to work. Hopefully, no one would decide to come in and bother him while he was working.

Raivis liked the Foreign Exchange Student's room. It was almost always deserted- honestly, people were busying themselves outside, in the library, or elsewhere in the school, but never here. Maybe it just wasn't in a good place, or perhaps it just wasn't interesting, but either way, it was a nice dorm. Raivis snuck off there a lot- it was one of the places he hid in whenever he wanted some solitude. Though, Raivis was quite good at finding himself new places to hide in...A bonus of being so small!

Days like this day were no different, it was calm, no one had bugged Raivis, but he was still tired. Potions class was hard, he was pretty sure he was going to fail it...Unless the professor graded on effort, then he might survive...It'd be a long, hard year. Raivis thought catching a little nap before heading to the library to do some homework was a good idea, or he just wouldn't get anything done. A yawn escaped Raivis' mouth as he strolled down the hallways and towards the Exchange room, lugging his backpack rather lazily over his shoulder.

"N'after potions homework I've gotta do my Arithmancy, and then..." Raivis murmured to himself, waddling into the dorm and over to a couple of couches, and dropped his bag. Before he sat down, he started reciting his homework queue again, and just as the last class passed his lips, Raivis noticed someone else in the room and stared over. "...S-sorry, I didn't see you..." he mumbled, instantly picking up his bag and heading for the door- but no, his foot caught on the edge of the carpet and Raivis found himself hitting the floor a second after.

And almost immediately after he said that, a small Hufflepuff wandered into the room, talking to himself. Lovino scowled and rolled his eyes. The one time he decided to use the room - that was meant to be unused by every one else - someone else had to come in and make him regret it. Sighing, the Italian leaned back in his chair and stared at the Hufflepuff. Given that the small thing had moved over to one of the couches and was still talking to himself, Lovino doubted that he knew anyone else was in the room.

He blinked as the kid suddenly looked up at him and apologized for being there, moving to leave again. Lovino watched the blond trip over the carpet and stared briefly before sighing. He stood up and went over to the kid, offering a hand to help him up. "It's fine kid, the room is meant to be used by everyone after all." And this was probably one of the few times where he regretted the fact that his default tone of voice was meant to make the person he was talking to feel like an idiot.

Not that he knew anything about the Hufflepuff, but he was just a kid. Probably a first year, though he had mentioned Arithmancy so Lovino supposed he could stretch it to a very short third year. Still, he didn't want to make the nervous little guy even more nervous, he would just feel like a bully then.

Raivis kind of froze up when he hit the floor, his mind somehow wandering to thoughts of 'did he trip me?' 'with magic or something?', though it was only because in his experience, it wasn't uncommon for people to bullying him with a little bit of magic. Raivis quickly dispelled those thoughts though when the boy came over and helped him up...but they returned after hearing his tone of voice. Raivis was rather sensitive to the way people spoke, especially right after something had happened that shook him up(falling was rather terrifying). But Raivis put those thoughts to the back of his mind and accepted the Slytherin's hand, pulling himself up.

"A-ah, but you were here first, and it s-seems like you would not like to be disturbed..." he murmured, looking down but reaching up to feel his face for any blood. Bleeding was kind of really scary too. Raivis lowered his hand and looked for blood- ah, good, nothing. Raivis looked up at the Slytherin boy and offered him a shaky, unconvincing smile. Raivis looked past him and glanced at the door, if he ran now, he wouldn't have any chance to annoy the older student and possibly piss him off. Which would be bad...though he didn't sound very happy in the first place...what if he'd already made him angry? Raivis hung his head again, like the twitchy guy he was, and fidgeted a bit.

"I, um...ah...the doors i-is over there," Raivis said in an attempt to excuse himself. Well, never hurt to try, and if anything, he could run off to the towers and sit in a window to do homework...Unless miraculously, this Slytherin wanted to do homework with him. Which was..quite doubtful.

He helped the kid to his feet and picked up his bag, handing it to him. Rolling his eyes, he gave the kid a softer version of his 'you're an idiot' look. "We were on opposite sides of the room. You weren't bothering me in the slightest kid." He explained, prepared to turn around and go back to his work.

"Why yes, that they are." He sighed, shaking his head and crossed his arms. "If you really want to leave, then go. But you're not bothering me by just being in here." Though the only reason Lovino had actually noticed the kid was because he was talking to himself. If that hadn't happened, the Italian would have been perfectly fine to ignore the Hufflepuff.

He went back over to his seat and pulled his potions book closer to himself, looking through it. And effectively ignoring the kid from that point on, deciding that it really wasn't worth it to try and convince the Hufflepuff to stay in the room if he felt that uncomfortable around the Slytherin. Why waste his time doing something when he had work to do?

Oh but to this certain Hufflepuff, his own mere presence was known to cause disturbances! Raivis was sure that even if he'd tried to...well, be a quiet little mouse, he could cause some sort of awful, loud, calamity of sorts. At least the Slytherin didn't look as...annoyed with him though, that was good, he wouldn't be getting in a fight today.

"A-ah, okay, okay...um..." Raivis had a bit of a...mental argument with himself at this point. On one had, it'd be easiest to just leave, though...he didn't know who he'd run into when he left the room, even if he did try to be sneaky and run off to a new place to hide. Then on the other hand, it'd be easier to stay in here and avoid people altogether, and just...not disturb the Slytherin. Raivis stood there, looking a tad displaced, and scratched his cheek, shifting his backpack while he contemplated this in his mind...But finally he reached a decision. He could quietly go over to the couch, do his homework, and just ignore the other presence in the room. Of course, this meant he'd have to study quietly(or maybe just hum to himself~).

Raivis turned and went back to the initial couch he'd gone to work at, setting his bag down again and sitting on the couch. He had a mission...a mission not to annoy the Slytherin boy! He could do it, he was usually quiet anyway, it wasn't as if he was carrying a vial of a failed potion from a few classes back in his backpack that could roll out, break, and set a small fire on the carpet. That wasn't possible at all, no- at least not until Raivis actually saw the fire on the carpet and let out a yelp of shock.

[[ Sorry I'm slow and awful at this and don't know what to do >u>;; ]]

After Lovino left the Hufflepuff to think over things, he completely ignored the other teenager. Well, almost completely. He did notice when the blond went to sit down, but other than that the Italian tried very hard to ignore the other. Not because he was being mean, but because he felt that the other would relax if there was no attention on him. Lovino got the feeling that this kid tended to make bad things happen when he was nervous.

It definitely got easier after the Hufflepuff shuffled back to his seat, since he wasn't making any noises at that point and so Lovino didn't have to consciously try to ignore him. That kind of effort made it hard to actually ignore a person, since he was basically thinking about him all the time and it made him hyper aware of the other student. But once his mind settled back on to his potions work and away from the blond, things settled down.

At least until he heard the yelp and the crackle that could only mean one thing. Lovino tensed and slowly looked up, staring at the fire in shock. How had the Hufflepuff managed that one? Lovino got to his feet quickly and got to work putting the fire out, stomping on it because it really wasn't that big and Lovino didn't want to get the carpet wet. Though the destruction of the carpet didn't really matter any more, considering the lovely new hole in it. "What did you do?" He demanded, glaring the hole. He gave the Hufflepuff a quick look to make sure he knew that Lovino was actually talking to him and not to the hole.

Raivis himself didn't know how to comprehend the fire before him. He'd rather forgotten about the potion he'd left in his bag; it was supposed to have been a calming draught, but, Raivis had a bad habit of not labeling his potions, and it wouldn't be surprising if he'd taken the wrong one. On top of that, Raivis was deadly when left in the Potions Lab, the teacher probably hated him. He simply was not the kind of person who could make a successful potion. This particular potion had likely, just simply gone wrong.

Raivis watched, legs drawn up to his chest in shock, as the Slytherin put out the fire and asked what he did. At first, Raivis didn't want to lay the blame on himself, because really! Who would want to blame themself for a seemingly spontaneous fire? That was never good. But lying wasn't either, and Raivis was pretty sure(with a small amount a doubt) that the Slytherin had been talking to him, and not the hole. Hesitating to answer, Raivis just gave the boy an awkward look, which said something that tied somewhere between 'there's a Dark Wizard trying to kill me' and 'please don't hit me'.

Finally though, Raivis swallowed and attempted to speak.
"U-uh...it just...happened!" He squawked, hoping the boy would just...accept that and not get mad at him. Raivis did kind of burn a hole in the carpet though, that probably wasn't something that'd be ignored so easily.

Eventually Lovino looked up from the hole in the carpet, just in time to see the strange look on the Hufflepuff's face. He scowled darkly in response, getting his wand out and starting to fix the hole. He didn't know the spell to fix fire damage, but the general repairing spell seemed to be working just fine. Though that section of the carpet still looked burnt.

He snorted, shaking his head. "Things like this don't just happen. Something started the fire, and since it was near you, you had a hand in it." Perfectly logical of course. Why would it be anything but? "Now what happened?" He glared at the Hufflepuff, crossing his arms.

Lovino had noticed the shards of a broken potions bottle on the floor, and figured that the Hufflepuff had just dropped a potion. Of course, it would take a special kind of potion to start a fire like that, but Lovino knew that the potions professor kept lots of different potions in her room just as demonstrations. Why this kid had one of them was the real question.

It sounded as if the Slytherin was sure of Raivis' guilt. Though, in all probability, it was Raivis' fault and he just hadn't figured out what sort of mishap he'd caused to happen that'd started the fire. Raivis didn't mean to though! Even if he had started the fire, he hadn't meant it! He couldn't get in trouble for that, right? ...Well, he could hope he wouldn't get in trouble, at least.

The Latvian watched as the fire damaged was reversed a bit, though it didn't rid the room of that burnt carpet smell. Raivis swallowed and finally noticed the shards of a potion vial on the floor. ...It clicked in his mind.

"...Th-that was my potion! It must have fallen...I-I, uhm...but that wasn't supposed to start fires," Raivis scooted closer and tried to look at the vial closer, seeing if he could recognize what it was. Well, he was certain he hadn't meant to grab anything to light floors aflame. "I..I think someone tried to poison me," he whispered, sounding deathly serious. Surely the only way that potion ended up in his bag was if someone had switched it! And that would mean...they were trying to kill him!

Really, it was his potion? Who could have guessed that? Lovino rolled his eyes as he listened to the Hufflepuff talk, still trying to fix the carpet. He had finally gotten rid of the burnt smell when the blond rolled out his grand conclusion. He stared, entirely sure that he had heard wrong. "I... what? Why would someone try to poison you?" It made no sense.

This was a small weak little person, who really didn't seem like a threat to anyone. Unless he had heard something he wasn't meant to - which seemed unlikely in this school - Lovino doubted anyone would ever think to try and poison this random little student. "It's more likely that you just grabbed the wrong potion." He decided, banishing the remnants of the vial.

He gave the blond's bag a suspicious look, wondering if it was safe to go back over to his stuff. While he did want to finish his homework, Lovino had to worry about this kid starting another fire in the common room. The last one had been relatively easy to put out; he doubted the next one would be quite so easy and simple.

Well...Raivis was smart enough to know that it wasn't likely someone was trying to poison him. Or at least...He was smart enough to realize that after actually thinking about what he'd said for a moment. But who knew! You had to have a imagination! What if someone really was trying to kill him, and he didn't know until it was too late? Then he'd be dead. Yes. This was justification for his rather extreme assumption. ...It made sense in his own mind, really.

"I-I...I don't know, I am pretty sure I had grabbed the right potion," he said, then turned to his bag with a slightly frightened look. If someone was trying to kill him, they likely switched all of the potions in his bag...and even if this poison thing was honestly more of Raivis not wanting to take the blame for setting the carpet on fire, he was starting to make himself paranoid. Lifting his bag and shuffling through it(carefully, he didn't want to set something else on fire...like his hand), Raivis picked out three more vials. He held them towards the Slytherin before him, "A-are these Calming Draughts...? That what I meant. I wonder if they're all poisoned," he whispered, almost as if someone was listening to them. Raivis shivered...the thought of ingesting a potion that lit things on fire was...rather scary.

Lovino scowled, crossing his arms. Honestly now, what kind of idiot immediately assumed that someone was trying to kill them? A very paranoid one, such as this little kid. "Well obviously you grabbed the wrong potion." He refrained from insulting him. It just wouldn't be fair and - though Lovino didn't really care about the fairness of it exactly - he knew word would get back to his grandfather and then he would have to deal with the disappointed looks.

Eyeing the potions the Hufflepuff was holding out to him, Lovino uncrossed his arms and took them. He went to the nearest table and set them down - as it was difficult to examine a potion while holding two others - before picking one and looking it over. He tested all three of the potions as quickly as he could while being safe. "None of these are Calming Draughts. This one will start another fire while these two are potions designed to combat nausea." The Italian explained, gesturing at the potions.

Raivis wasn't known for being the most observant...honestly, he thought he'd grabbed the right potions! He tried, yes he had! But...sometimes, trying wasn't enough, and Raivis was better off asking a teacher or another student to help him find potions, lest he end up drinking a potion that would burn him from the inside out. Luckily though, Raivis hadn't ended up drinking those potions! Even if he still believed someone was trying to kill him, mostly not wanting to admit he'd messed up when he grabbed potions.

Raivis walked over and watched Lovino look at the potions, setting his chin on the table and staring at the vials. The potions looked enough like calming draughts...but Raivis knew he was no expert. In fact, he was the opposite of expert. He made people novice to making potions look wonderful. Raivis was sure his potions professor would end up kicking him out of class, the way Raivis devastatingly failed at potion making. "...If I had drank those, I think I might have died.." he murmured, a vague look of terror on his face. "Except not the nausea one, that would probably make me feel good, I-I think...How can to know what they are so easily?" Raivis looked up at the Italian, a curious expression upon his face.

Lovino picked up the two fire starting potions and gently placed them in his pocket, knowing better than to let this kid keep them. He would just start another fire and then stare as the fire got bigger and bigger. And then Lovino would feel guilty because he knew it was going to happen. "Because I work with potions often enough to know what they're meant to look like." And because Professor Kirkland often showed him her finished potions and told him the purpose behind them. She was such a nice professor.

"Since I'm fairly certain that you're not going to start anymore potions, I'm going back to my work." Though he would definitely be keeping an eye on him to make sure he didn't actually start a fire. Lovino didn't trust him with a wand, not at all. Going back over to the table that he claimed and putting the two potions inside his bag, he sat back down and pulled his books closer. He did look up at the other student every so often, just to make sure he wasn't hurting himself.

Raivis tapped his chin once, trying to figure out if it was even possible to potions apart...really, they all looked similar to him, only the ones that were different colours looked in any way different, and even then some of the colours looked so close...Raivis shook his head and watched the Slytherin go, leaving the nausea cure behind; Raivis reached across the table and looked at the potion, squinting at it carefully. He slipped it into his pocket for a later date, just in case he needed it. Now left alone atthe table, Raivis went back to his bag and took out the homework he'd come here to do, and began.

Raivis sat for a good few minutes, quiet and working diligently, before the curiosity just overcame him. He glanced up at the Slytherin every few seconds, trying to gather up the courage to ask the boy if he could teach him something about potions...really, Raivis was too nervous to ask for help in class. But this student hadn't done anything mean to him, he'd saved him even! ...But Raivis was still Raivis, and just sat there, a bit fidgety, looking up at the older student and wondering how to go about asking for some pointers.

It really wasn't that hard to tell potions apart. They all had different consistencies and what not, so it should be easy to do so. Of course, this was coming from the guy who made potions in his free time for no real reason. So perhaps he was a little biased. Finishing his work for this subject and moving on to the next one, he looked up just in time to see the other kid turn his attention back to his own work. Lovino sighed and wondered if it was really worth the effort, to figure out what the other kid wanted from him. If he didn't ask the kid would keep looking at him, but if he did then he would have to talk with the Hufflepuff again.

He sighed again and sat up. "Did you want something?" Please get nervous and say no, please get nervous and say no. Lovino did not want to talk with this kid at all, but he knew that dealing with the constant looks of the other kid was going to chip at his nerves until he snapped and yelled. And yelling would lead to tears for the other student and a detention for the Italian, so he wanted to avoid that happening.

Raivis jumped when the Slytherin spoke to him. Yes! This was good! It meant the Slytherin boy maybe wanted to talk to him too! Okay, well, maybe it was more like he was annoyed with Raivis and wanted him to stop looking at him, or worse wanted him to leave...they were in different houses! And Raivis didn't like to discriminate but he kept hearing these rumours and it just made him worry relentlessly whenever he came in contact with someone outside of Hufflepuff. But maybe he really was a friendly, nice guy under all that kind of...grumpy sounding voice...erm...Raivis fidgeted and stared at Lovino for a moment, indecisively trying to figure out what to say to him.

But finally, something came to him! And by that, it meant before Raivis even knew what he was thinking it was out of his mouth, "Would you be my potions tutor? Y-you are really good at potions I think and you saved my life, so I will pay you with food if you help me..?" he blurted, without any beating around the bush. Raivis stood up, taking all the courage he had, and scuttled over to Lovino's table, sitting across from the older student and looking up at him. Almost immediately he regretted it though...he was sure the other boy hated him, just...just because! Was he too forward? Raivis looked a bit fearful as he waited for a response, hoping it didn't involve getting cussed at or hit, or cursed, or maimed, or...the list went on!

Lovino crossed his arms and scowled as he waited for an answer, not liking this silence. It was starting to get awkward, especially since the kid was just staring at him with a blank look on his face. It made the Hufflepuff look stupid as hell, and this waiting left Lovino with no sympathy for this kid. He raised his eyebrows in hopes of getting an answer sooner, scowling more. These actions created a very fierce look on his face, something that would have scared even him if he could see it.

Blinking in surprise at the kid's question, he didn't even really notice as the Hufflepuff came over to sit across from him. Be someone's tutor? Lovino's first instinct was to say no; he truly hated teaching other people what to do, and he didn't want to deal with this kid on a regular basis. But... Professor Kirkland would be happier if she didn't have to worry about another student blowing up her class room, and the happier she was the more receptive she was to listening to his various different potions theories. So... he sighed and stared at the kid, frowning. "I suppose I can tutor you. But I want actual money, not food." More money equaled more potions ingredients, which Lovino always wanted.

Oh...well that certainly put a dent in Raivis' hopes. He wasn't quite old enough for a job, and only had the money his parents sent him each month as an allowance, and that usually went to getting himself new supplies he'd managed to destroy in certain classes...like Potions. But surely, Raivis could scrape up enough to pay the Slytherin money. How much could that cost? Raivis got, on average, 2 galleons a month and sometimes a handful of sickles, he hoped that'd be enough.

"How much would you want..?"
he inquired, a bit nervously. He hoped the boy(who sounded quite Italian!) wouldn't charge much. Asking his parents for more money wasn't really an option, he'd feel bad for that. But, it was to get his grades up, so maybe it wasn't too bad to ask...but still! Raivis scrunched up his nose in a confused, hesitant manner, not sure how to feel about asking his parents for money. But, he was a good learner, and did his best to absorb everything and pay attention, so maybe after a few lessons he wouldn't have to have a tutor anymore, and would be able to just do the work himself! ...Which seemed unlikely, Raivis was utterly terrible at potions. "A-and um, I can make food and pay you!" he offered on a last whim, hoping that, the Slytherin might give him a lower price if he offer food too. Perhaps Raivis just thought about his stomach too much.

Frowning, Lovino tried to think of a reasonable price to charge this kid. He never really thought about money except when he was lamenting his lack of it and tried to think of ways to make more money for himself. Those ways never really panned out though. Of course, that was probably just because he was too lazy to actually put any of those plans into action and therefore they all just fell through on him. But his thoughts were drifting. "Three sickles." Was that fair enough? Lovino was giving this kid his time and energy after all. And he really wasn't looking forward to having to work with him.

He rolled his eyes and gave the Hufflepuff a look, not at all impressed with his offer of food. It would never be as good as Italian food, so he wasn't even going to bother trying it. "I don't want your food." That should have been obvious the first time he turned down the kid's offer. And honestly, why was he so stuck on offering food in the first place? "Meet me every Thursday after dinner in the potions lab." That was the largest amount of time he was prepared to offer this kid. An hour after dinner on Thursdays only.

A small, suppressed smile spread on Raivis' face- he had to hold in how happy he was to get a tutor, one that he could afford! He nodded, "Three? That is good, I-I have that much!" he explained. It was too bad the Italian didn't want some yummy Latvian food, Raivis would probably still try to share with the boy any way, though. People really did underestimate the tastiness of Latvian food! But that was fine, Raivis didn't mind, it only meant more for him, really. But...a tutor! Raivis hoped a few lessons would start bringing his grade up; it was already rather...awful. Raivis glanced upwards for a moment and tried to remember how much of his allowance he had left...he was sure he had at least 3 sickles, he saved all the money he didn't use to buy new supplies and get things fixed.

Raivis quickly shuffled through his bag and wrote down the time and place for their meeting(he didn't want to forget, that'd be bad!), then tucked it away and looked at the Italian with a serious, 'I'm-ready-to-do-as-you-say!' expression. "I-is there anything I should bring? Other than my potion...stuff?" perhaps 'stuff' was a word to sound...well, more professional, because he didn't want the Slytherin to think he was stupid(had he already passed that point..?). But he'd already said it, no going back now. "Maybe things to take notes with...I-I should take notes, ja?"

Lovino squirmed slightly at the excited look on the Hufflepuff's face, feeling uncomfortable. He mostly felt weird knowing that he was the one who had made the other person so happy looking, even though he was basically stealing money from him. He really doubted that he would be able to help the kid at all, but he supposed that he could definitely try. "Good. You'll have to give them to me at the start of every session, got it?" He was going to get paid before, not after. That way the kid wouldn't be able to get away with not paying. If he didn't pay, there just wouldn't be any lesson at all.

Humming as he watched the other kid write down the information, he made a mental note to do the same thing later. He didn't want to deal with a crying little brat just because he forgot about the meeting. "Something to take notes on would be a good idea, yeah. We're mostly going to work to make sure that you can recognize potions and the differences between them and their ingredients. Especially the ingredients." Lovino had sudden visions of explosions rocking the school just because this idiot did something wrong. Potion classes took place down in the dungeons mostly because the rooms there had protections on them to keep them from getting destroyed. If this kid managed to shake the school anyway, he would be scared.

Raivis nodded, noting he'd have to break a galleon into some sickles, or he'd have to just...pay the Slytherin a lot extra, and that probably wasn't a good idea- he'd have no money left if he did that. Raivis nodded and added to his note to get smaller change, and that he'd have to pay before the meetings. He tried scribbling down what they'd be(hopefully) learning, but he couldn't write that fast in English and just gave up that. He'd learn later, that's all that mattered.

"I will bring them, a-am not a liar, don't you worry, mister...erm.."
oh, how embarrassing. Raivis seemed to have forgotten the other's name. Wait, did he ever even know it? The Latvian was pretty sure he didn't. Oh, but was it really okay to ask for the other's name just yet? Raivis was pretty sure they couldn't quite be considered friends, so it could be weird. he looked down and played with his fingers for a moment. But maybe he should ask for his name, just in case something terribly awful happened, and they couldn't identify the older student's body and somehow Raivis had managed to survive...Yes, knowing his name was important. "In case y-you die, may I know your name?" Honestly, he meant that in the best way possible!

He watched the other student take down notes, absently gathering up his stuff. He had wanted a quiet place to do his work but unfortunately it looked like he wouldn't be getting that here, thanks to this kid. Was it really too much to ask to be left alone? Apparently. Lovino scowled and resisted the urge to give the kid a death glare for seemingly no reason. Didn't want the kid to have a heart attack and die, that would be truly terrible. Mostly because Lovino would be sent home for killing a fellow student and he didn't want to go home, not yet anyway.

Raising an eyebrow as the kid started talking, Lovino scowled. He knew the kid was going to ask for his name next, having realized that he didn't know it. Logically he knew it was the best option, to know each other's names, but he didn't want to share his with this guy. It may be a little childish but he didn't care. He wanted to keep it secret, keep it to-- Lovino's thoughts derailed as the kid asked for his name. The way he asked it was... exceptionally odd, to say the least. "... You're so fucking creepy." He shuddered, scowling. "If you kill me brat, I will haunt you for the rest of your life." Not really, he wouldn't want to. "I'm Lovino Vargas. And you are?" Not that it mattered; Lovino would still call him brat and kid.
