If you're a newcomer and interested in joining, then please make sure you check out the rules. You may also want to read the FAQ, introduce yourself and stop by the chat to meet some of our members. If you're still not quite sure where to start, then we have a great New Member's Guide with a lot of useful information about getting going. Don't hesitate to PM a member of staff (they have purple usernames) if you have any questions about SOTF and how to get started!

Let the games begin!

((Alessio Rigano continued from What a Day))

Alessio sat in front of a computer. Not his own, but in front of a school computer, which performed worse than his own one. But that didn't matter, as Al did not plan to play a video game during the lunch.

Cool. Fixed.

He should go to newgrounds and-

Al looked around the room. Maybe he shouldn't go to newgrounds. He didn't want to appear as if his only hobby in the world would be to play flash games. Next to him there was Nadia Riva. What was she doing? Al was curious. He tried to look at the screen from the distance. He had no clue what that website was.

Oh, there were photos on the website? And then Nadia said something. Was that directed at him? Then she looked at him, where his natural reaction was to quickly look back to his screen. She asked him whether she could help him. Oh god, Alessio had no idea how to reply.

"Uh..."

Yes?

"No."

Alessio stared perplexed at the computer screen, not sure what to do. He took the mouse, closed the Firefox window he used to discover how to fix the flipped screen problem and moved the cursor on the desktop. He should click on Firefox, no, create a word document. The cursor then moved to Internet Explorer, whyever the school had Internet Explorer. And then it went towards Firefox again. Then, he clicked on Firefox, then he did nothing. He then quickly looked again to Nadia to check whether she still looked at him.

Oh noes, she looked at him again.

"Yeah, I don't need anything."

It was a weird situation. A weird eye situation. Just like when these dang young kids stare at you in the bus. Constantly.

Alessio however should under no circumstance turn back to his computer. No, he couldn't do that. Nadia would think he's a creep. And then, she might tell that somebody else in a conversation. And it could spread. And somebody specific could also receive information about how that italian dude stared at Nadia. Her. That should not happen.

No, start a conversation. A conversation that overshadows the looking at each other. How to start one?

"Uh, what are you doing?"

Alessio was scared of the awkward silence and was relieved when she replied. And she talked. She talked a lot.

In contrast, Alessio wasn't that talkative for a reply.

"..."

What to say? Photos was stuff Alessio wasn't interested in. Like, he was the live the moment kind of guy. Not the capture the moment. Though there was something aesthetic about photos.

"Uh."

He breathed the air out of his lungs and inhaled again.

"Can you read Ita-"

No, dumb question. No need to point out that he's Italian. He coughed into his hand, then cleared his throat.

"What do you want to submit? Do you have a...plan? Concept?"

Nadia apparently had a blog with photos on it.

Alessio's visual senses were flooded with different pics. He couldn't decide which photo of Nadia to look at.

"Oh, that one looks cool!", Al exclaimed while pointing his finger onto the screen.

The picture he pointed at was one, where Nadia wore a hat and a denim shirt-dress. She was sitting on an old lawn chair and the picture's about her looking on Route 66. That'd be a good picture to submit, wouldn't it? After all, Kingman was near Route 66, so it would be a practical application. And the picture was beautiful as well. The sky was blue and she had a cool pose.

How to reply to that, how to reply for that, Alessio. Alessio had no clue.

There were other photos. A photo in the desert, combined with the orangey shine of the sun. She's posing there in the desert with mountains far away in the background, though it was a bit cold how she looked with her head slightly tilted down. And then there's a picture of her as a shadow or rather a black figure because of the camera position being in the direction of the sun. And then there's the fact that her hair is floating.

Amazing what one could do with cameras. Alessio wished he'd be photogenic. If somebody shot a photo of him you'd probably have to edit his face out and insert Nadia's face instead to make it photogenic.

Oh well, Alessio then looked back at his own desktop. He opened Firefox and thought what he'd do now.

When Nadia revealed that she had decided which pic it should be Alessio was relieved.

He might have been a helpful person to her.

Alessio then browsed on the internet to find cool games. He aimed for free or cheap games, but could not find any that interested him. Thus, he turned off the computer and left when he was finished.
