((Alessio Rigano continued from My Freeze Ray))

Alessio wasn't the Alessio who went to school anymore. He was a man who was dressed in a suit. It didn't fit perfectly, but he now certainly looked better than he usually looked in school. But who did he make himself more viewable for?

Currently, he saw nobody. Walking through the dance floor he smiled to the people who noticed him and greeted them back when they did.

He arrived at the bar and stood in front of the refreshment table to get something to eat, in a place near Cristo. Al couldn't dance. He would accidently hit the feet or faces of other people. But he was glad he came nonetheless. Smiling at Cristo, he also greeted him with a smile.

"Hey."

Then, he took something out of the refreshment table to shove it into his mouth.

Alessio nodded when Rene stated that this was exciting. It wasn't, but he could pretend it was. So he nodded with a smile and a 'hm', not noticing the sarcasm.

Eating stuff was addictive. He continued eating some more snacks. Maybe he should stop. Okay, last one.

No more food he wanted to grab. He should engage with Cristo and Rene. Do something for the evening. This was an opportunity to speak, chat to people instead of just being lonely at the dance and being bored. It was funny, how there were center and corner people on this party. Cristo was a corner person, Al was one. But Rene? Rene wasn't one, but still was in the corner, nonetheless. So that doesn't have to mean anything.

Vanessa. She was a center one. She'd be in the center of the room.

And Cristo was talking about the theme. What does Alessio have to say about the theme? Space. Nothing. He had nothing to say, really.

Alessio then changed from looking at the other two corner people to looking to the center of the gym. He could see people, recognise some. But not the person he wanted to see.

"And if thou gaze long into a crowd, the crowd will also gaze into thee." - Alriech Nietzschano

There was a blonde girl waving at...him? He looked around if there was anybody else she could have waved at for a reason. There did not seem to be. Why him? Al did not know, but he waved back nonetheless. This was weird. Maybe he should stop gazing at the dance floor.

Maybe he should stop looking for her. He did not see her face. Maybe she comes later. Maybe she is here and he will randomly encounter her during this evening. These kind of things always happen when you don't expect it.

Turning back to the refreshment table, he took another snack. He should talk to Rene and Cristo, so he looked at their mouths to get the context of what they were talking about. He put his hands into his pockets. No more eating.

The last thing he heard from the conversation was something about snacks and decoration. Snacks. He could say something about that.

"Ah yeah, the snacks are tasty."

From what Alessio could get from the conversation was that Rene came to the dance just to go away soon again. Yeah, he maybe should do that as well. Play games at home, maybe. Instead of just being here, unsure when to go. He had plenty of time he could waste here.

Alessio looked away from Rene and Cristo towards the dance floor again as something caught his eye.

Wait, that was Vanessa, wasn't it? Al thought he saw her in the crowd. It was her beautiful hair, her-

No, that wasn't her.

He looked back at Cristo and Rene. Something about friends.

"Huh? Yeah," he nodded. "I am alright, I am totally fine." Get a grip, Al. Stop staring in the crowd, awaiting her, look at Cristo instead. No need for eye contact, but at least concentrate.

Uh yeah, what to say? It was hard to not think about her.

Perhaps, distract with a song, with music. Not the song that was currently played on Sadie Hawkins, but one song in his head. A song that reminded him of Sadie Hawkins. Alessio did not hum. Al did not sing. But he had the lyrics in his head. Come as you are. As you were. As I want you to be.

Who was he kidding? He had the guitar in his head, not the lyrics. Much more comfortable than this playlist. The music in Sadie Hawkins was so loud, so happy, so...it did not fit his mood. Al liked every genre, but he really did not feel this current song. He did not feel the vibe of the music. Al did not feel Sadie Hawkins.

In his head, his internal playlist could reflect his mood. And if he felt like Nirvana fits, then he would feel like it.

Anyways, look interested to Cristo. Concentrate. Cristo. Rene. Focus on what Cristone has to say. Eh, Cristo.

Something about friends. He did not understand what was said in the context. But that didn't matter, he could ask later. Besides, Rene was about to leave. Rene wanted to take a sandwich and Cristo had a good point. They wouldn't bother to take it away. And yeah, that would be not hygienic to just put things back, which made Al worry if the things he currently ate were healthy an clean. Hm.

Al awkwardly said nothing to Rene. Perhaps he should wave at her. But no, that would be rude. He tapped Cristo's shoulder. Speak up, Al.

"Could you repeat what you said, please? I couldn't hear it. It's too crowded here."

He eyed Rene, and tried to smile. Hopefully, he did not come off as rude. Interrupting Rene and Cristo's dialogue.
