((Alessio Rigano continued from Dearest Creature in Creation))

Alessio walked through the park, clothed in a green, checkered dress shirt, with not only the highest button, but every button unbuttoned; it was good weather after all. He enjoyed to walk through the park with his ears being plugged by earphones that are connected with his MP3-player in his pocket.

The tune of Nagasaki by Reinhardt he obtained from the internet in a not-so-legal way ended and a new song of his playlist started to play. This time it was something from the Dire Straits.

So Alessio carried a shopping bag, where a chips bag was on top of it, looking out of it. Inside the bag, there was diverse stuff, milk for the Riganos, milk for the cats, meat, food, cheese and various other things. Mostly food, though.

The park was a nice place to go through after having shopped for his family. He used to jog in the park often when the weather was good. Oh, man. How many weeks has he not jogged? It must've been a while. Maybe months.

He then saw Penelope, a friend of him from the robotics club. She's fun to be around and is an excellent roboticist. Apparently she now enjoyed the sun by sitting on a bench and has a flower behind her ear, which was kinda unusual. Well, Al wouldn't find it that unusual, but fitting, considering that she wore turtle earrings.

Alessio had to smile.

"Hello, Penelope!"

Alessio's nose was being poked, which would've been weird if somebody he didn't knew would do it, but when Penelope did it while saying 'boop', it was pretty funny for Al. He considered to poke back, but he decided against it, because he had no hands left. One hand turned the volume down, so he could actually understand her. The other carried the bag. But then he put the bag on the ground, so he wouldn't need to carry it around the whole conversation.

"Ah, that is cool. I didn't know that you were doing this. Uh, You're doing yoga, right? I was shopping. Uhm-"

Well, he barely knew what else to say, so the interruption she did wasn't bad. Penelope greeted Adelaide whom he didn't notice was here as well. She was also a student in their grade, but besides that he didn't know her closely. She was apparently jogging, given that she was drinking from a fountain and also given that she was dressed like she would do something athletic right now.

With a quiet "hey", he also waved with his free hand to her.

Alessio never meditated, but how Penelope described it, it was a really cool thing to do. It's something good for the soul and, well, it seemed very relaxing. Maybe he should try it out sometimes. But honestly, he probably wouldn't.

Isn't it the same thing as sleeping during the night? Or, well, as you're asleep and can barely control your thoughts while sleeping, the minutes before sleeping? These were moments where he thought about things and life in general as well.

Then he looked at Adelaide, curious about how she'd respond.

Adelaide and Penelope seemed to get along well. Cleansing the body of tea and meat.

After he received a question, it answered by Penelope. There was nothing else, he could add. Not that it bothered Alessio. He was actually kinda thankful for Penelope. That way he didn't need to speak so much. He nodded at Adelaide while quickly saying "yeah, shopping" to confirm that Penelope was indeed telling the truth.

Penelope's showing off of the bought goods didn't really bother Alessio. Neither did the vegetarianism of her. He himself wouldn't stop eating meat, because his parents did eat meat as well. And his cats needed meat as well, so it was important for his family. And it was very delicious as well, so there's that.

He smiled at Penelope.

"Well, my cats wouldn't approve of eating healthier stuff, haha."

He wondered how they'd react to feed them without meat at all. That'd make them sad, probably.

"Yeah, I got a cyprus cat, an american bobtail and two domestic short-haired cats."

That was a sentence that Alessio could remember. If he wasn't planning to become a vetenerian, he probably wouldn't have cared about the breeds, because a cat is a cat. But he was planning to, so he recalled this sentence.

"You have cats, too?"

Aw, that must have sucked. Not being able to have cats, because somebody was allergic. And there were cats that needed a home. Alessio was glad that neither of his parents were allergic. Or himself.

"Mi-". Michelle, Massimo, Jeff and Julius. That was what he wanted to say, but Penelope interrupted.

Al hadn't notice the uncomfortable look of Adelaide during the hug Penelope pointed out, when he was about to answer. Maybe a sign that he was just bad at reading people.

Michelle, Massimo, Jeff and Julius. Another memorable sentence he could remember. People asking for the name of the cats wasn't a rarity.

The dating comment was making him uncomfortable himself. He didn't date Penelope. He wouldn't. Never will. There's just Vanessa. He hadn't told anyone, but whatever. Nobody needed to know. 0.01% probability that it'd happen anyway.

Michelle, Massimo, Jeff and Julius. That's what he should say. After she answered. He didn't want to interrupt.

It was weird. The conversation suddenly became awkward and he hadn't even said anything.

While Alessio was curious about how Adelaide felt about hugging, it's none of his business. Also, he could kinda understand that some people don't like hugging. Some people do, some people don't. Also, the weather was hot, so that might explain it a bit?

So he said "Michelle, Massimo, Jeff and Julius". He tried to smile at Adelaide. He liked it that she was interested in him and his cats enough to bring them back to the topic instead of talking awkwardly about something else. That, or the other topic was something she really didn't like.

When Penelope looked at the phone, he looked at his bag. He also needed to go home to bring the bag back home.

Oh, Adelaide liked the names. That's nice.

After Adelaide left and Penelope smiled at him before leaving as well, he smiled back and grabbed his stuff.

And then he went home to unbox his bought goods.

((Alessio Rigano continued in What a Day))
