"No no, hang on a second!" Micheal tried calling out after the pair, maybe try and explain himself a little better. But, no. They kept walking, throwing in a few parting gifts as they did. Maybe it was for the best? If he kept talking, he'd probably end up making a rape joke or something equally painful. No, maybe it was the best for everyone involved if they ran off. Well, maybe best socially. He'd seen enough of the show to know that you wouldn't go far armed with only good intentions. Well, Micheal and Sofia would be okay at least. They'd tried to show the two girls they meant well, and it wasn't totally his fault they ran off.

Still, it didn't feel too good, being perceived as that sort of threat. He didn't look too intimidating, right? A little overweight, unkempt hair, attire that could only be called geek-like. Who the hell was he going to scare? Maybe if he was decked out with his Wolverine claws, but he wasn't. Maybe the two of them together, Micheal in his geek clothes, Sofia with her pipe, maybe they sounded alarm bells? Whatever the reason, they'd taken off. Fine, so be it. They wanted to get ganked, bully for them.

Micheal looked over at Sofia, shrugging his shoulders in an apologetic gesture. He didn't understand what they were scared off, but he recognized that it was probably his fault. Sofia took a seat on the path next to him, and he was tempted to join her. Instead, he remained standing, awkwardly shifting on his feet next to her. He felt like he should say something, maybe comfort her? Possibly do then make the shrug equivalent of 'my bad'. He looked down when she spoke, but it was directed more toward herself then it was him. The name didn't ring any bells either. There probably had to be a dozen Tony's at Bayside.

When she did look up, it was almost a different woman. Well, maybe not that big of a change, but she deed seem more determined. Having a destination would do wonders for someones self-esteem, he guessed. On the opposite hand, he had no frakkin' idea where he was going. Maybe find Mady? He'd talked with her on the way down, so he knew she was kicking around at least. It was nice to have a friend on the island. Less nice when you remember that meant they were going to die horribly along with you. Yeah, that would work. Sofia could go after her Tony, he could go after Mady.

It was better then his current plan at least, his current plan being wander around until someone attacked him.

"Right, sure, yeah. I'll, uh, I'll try and find them and make sure they don't, you know, walk face first into a zombie or something. Wouldn't that be just like that Danya guy? I mean, some sort of bioengineered monstrosities running around? Turn the corner and see frakkin' Nemesis standing there? Going all 'STAAAARS'?" It finally occurred to him he was rambling, and rambling about something that would go right over her head. "Uh, bad guys. So, yeah, good luck, I guess? Don't die horribly?" After offering a feeble wave, Micheal started down the road in the opposite direction.

"There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty. The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass" -Terry Pratchett, The Truth
