((Junko Kurosawa continued from Pool Slingshot))

Oh, thank god for lunchtime. Junko really couldn't listen to another Brown rant about people's behavior and responsibility for too long, or else she'd start... dunno, beating people left, right, and center. Okay, that probably wouldn't happen, but you know.

But someone just had to keep talking during her class. Loudly. During lecture math time. And with Brown, that's a big no-no. So the last few minutes were about how they needed to be responsible and whatever. Greaaat. The entire time she went on, Junko had rested her chin on her hand, and occasionally she tried to command the clock to inch ever so closely to lunchtime with her brain. She was hungry, and listening to Brown rants while hungry was such a big joy, wasn't it? Didn't help that Brown was probably the one teacher she came close to hating. Junko didn't like math to begin with, and with her teaching it... she probably wasn't going to start any time soon.

But she was out now.

Junko's lips pressed as she stepped into the cafeteria. It was a good thing she decided to bring lunch today, because she wouldn't want to stand in line only to look around for a seat, not after the B.S. last class. Maybe she was getting too upset over Brown being Brown. Maybe she wasn't. Who cares, at least she had food now.

Junko placed her lunch bag in front of her at an empty table close to the window, before making a screech as she pulled out the chair and sat down.

The sandwich she had almost made up for it. Her reward for listening to Brown talk about being responsible for several minutes? Salami, beef, Swiss cheese, lettuce, mayo, pickles, and hot sauce, all on sourdough. She didn't have anything else. She didn't need anything else. She was fine with her delicious, delicious sandwich.

Junko took a huge bite, savoring it. Damn good hot sauce. Damn good salami and beef. Damn good bread. Let's rephrase that, damn good bread. It needed more emphasis.

Someone wordlessly placed their meal down at Junko's table.

Wait, was "wordlessly" a good word when it was Kimiko Kao? Because she wasn't sure. Kimiko was kind of cool, though, she guessed. She was on the gymnastics team, and Junko had seen her a few times when she was working at Larson's. Both things were cool in her book. The whole "not talking" thing was a little awkward, but, well, that wasn't something Junko could hold against her. It wasn't like she could if she wanted to. But Junko didn't mind her sitting here. She was still a little sour about last class, but she wasn't going to take it out on Kimiko.

Junko swallowed her bite.

"Hey".

The word slipped out of her mouth as she gave a gentle wave.

Alright, should she say more to Kimiko? Well, yeah! It would be awkward not to. What to talk about then? How Brown ranted last class? About what they were eating? About the month-old X-Men comic she clearly had in front of her? Well, Kimiko was clearly looking at her expectantly. There were plenty of things, really. Junko, being a Marvel fan, knew X-Men stuff. They both were in sports teams, just not the same ones. And everyone could relate to eating and Brown being Brown.

"Uh..." she started. A few seconds later, she tried again. "Is that an X-Men comic you have?"

Junko was so smooth right now that someone could slip on her.

Junko didn’t mind X-Men.

She had liked them when she was younger. While she didn’t really follow anything that happened in the comics or movies too closely these days, she could appreciate their stories. It wasn’t hard to deny the themes of discrimination throughout the stories. But yes, she remembered liking X-Men. Well, actually, she still did in a way. Did she ever stop? Even with some of the sillier movies?

“Oh, which issue’s that? I haven’t read X-Men in a w-“

A bit of hot sauce dripped out of the sandwich and onto the table. Junko looked down, and glared at it. Then, she placed the sandwich down. She slid a paper napkin over the spot, feeling it seep through.

“-Yeah,” she started again. “It’s been a while.”

She’d recognized the cover from her shifts at Larson's. It's a shame she hadn't stopped to get her copy or borrow it off someone else. Not only was she behind and thus needed catching up. It meant that if someone asked about it, she wouldn't be able to say whether or not it was good. Hence why she usually tried to get caught up to date on this. Luckily, no one had asked about anything X-Men related in a while.

"Ah."

That was her response, it turned out. Ah? Ah. That meant it was from... damn, 2013? That long ago? No, 2014. It wasn't that new, definitely. She'd definitely need to catch up. But... ah. Really Junko, that's an "Ah"? Eloquence wasn't her forte today. Maybe talking to someone who is mute isn't something she was good at. She kept trying to tell herself that she was simply mute, not deaf, not blind, not anything. Kimiko couldn't talk, is all. But still. Junko was rarely an awkward person. When was the last time she was this awkward? The crash fest at the pool? That was awkward. Same levels, though?

So they talked about it for the rest of the lunch period. Yeah, she definitely needed to catch up on X-Men comics. It was best for everyone involved. Luckily, she knew on what she could read for the future.

Kimiko was cool, she guessed. It was nice talking to her?
