Oh fuck me.

There was a short list of people Ty really didn't need to deal with today. People Ty really shouldn't deal with until he had some time to chill and decompress. On a scale of 1-10, Jeremy was a solid 8.5 on that list, easy. They didn't fight as much these days, mostly because he tried not to fight at all, but they'd gone at it a few times before. Ty'd never hit him...yet. God though, there'd been a few times he'd wanted to. He'd wanted to real bad.

It'd be a real bad idea to just walk up and start chatting with the guy right now, state he was in. Neither of them would enjoy it, and it might set off some sparks. Yep. It'd be nothing but trouble to just stride right over there and strike up a conversation, knowing it'd only lead to them biting at each other. Only a complete idiot would get mixed up in that mess.

"Hey," Ty called down from over Jeremy's book. "How's it goin'?"

Ty rolled his neck as he looked down at Jeremy and his book in the grass, letting the tension pop and crack out with the movement. He was so close. School was over. He could bail out here, hole up in the garden with Chaplin, and let what was left of his anger bleed out without any trouble. Just give the kid a nod and walk on by. Nobody needed to start anything today.

There was a pair of nagging needs gnawing at the back of his consciousness, though. On the one hand, he'd never really made up with Jeremy for all the shit they'd started. Never wanted to, even though he needed to. Jeremy was up there among the people that deserved some kind of apology, probably, but the guy got under Ty's skin, so he never got around to it. Maybe today was the right place, right time. Show that he wasn't the asshole, and that he could leave the school with some good karma under his belt.

Then again, there was that other desire burning to get out. The need to express the negativity he felt, to let it out in some visceral way and pass the anger on to someone else, let them bear its burden while he walked away emptier. It had dulled from habit to temptation over these long months, but it still made his head ache every time he fought against it, the possibility of release almost dancing behind his eyelids. It'd be so easy to snap and never have to deal with this feeling again. To just throw away all the progress and let the urge start taking him again.

He didn't head either way, for now. Tipping one or the other was just too much to deal with. It was better to just orbit and find some footing. Ty cocked an eyebrow and kept his expression neutral as he glanced down at the cover of the book, looking for an in.

"Whatcha readin'?"

New guy snapped the question right out of Ty's mouth when he wandered into the conversation. He didn't have a whole lot to add beyond that, either. John Green wasn't someone he was real familiar with, just knew he did videos online and shit. From what Ty understood, he was a real positive sort of guy. The type that got a lot of outsider glances into tragedy and tried to spin things out nicely anyway. He probably would have hated the dude not too long ago, if he put that much thought into it. Now, he just seemed kinda naive.

Didn't seem like there was much point in dragging all that out though. He gave the newcomer a glance and tried to place him in his head. He knew him from somewhere around school, that was sure, but he couldn't really put his thumb on him. They ran in different circles, not much crossover, that kinda shit. Still, maybe he'd help stabilize this whole deal. Third person meant they couldn't go off to hard on each other out of nowhere, hopefully.

Ty shifted a back and leaned against the tree while he waited for Jeremy to answer the question, staying out of the line of sight between the two of them. Wasn't a whole lot he could do until then.

Ty cracked his neck a bit as he rested against the tree. New guy helped ease the tension some between him, it felt like. Wasn't really sure where the conversation was headed, but at least they weren't yelling yet. Seemed like an improvement over the usual.

The synopsis Jeremy supplied sounded kinda scattered, but maybe that was just the timing of it all. All he did was shrug and nod as he listened on, trying to think of something to add. Maybe this was it. Maybe this was all they needed, just a sorta civil conversation, and then he could bail out. Might resolve whatever the fuck he came looking for over here. "Mmhm," he mumbled, "sounds like a packed one. Can't say I've heard of it, or too familiar with the Green fella. It any good?"

Welp. That accomplished about as much as he could have hoped, which turned out to be pretty much nothing. Had a civil conversation, sorta, with Jeremy though. Could check that one off the ol' bucket list.

Ty gathered has bag and pushed up off the tree, headed for home.
