Will was panting slightly. Sure, the run hadn't been any further than his last run, or the one before that, but he'd managed to cut the time down from 30 mins, 24 seconds, down to 29 mins exactly. And whilst that didn't seem too much for most people, every time he cut the time down, it involved more sweat and hard work until it came normally to him. And then he'd try to cut the time down again, unational eventually he would hit the fastest time he could possibly go. Still, he was a long way off from that moment.

Had he looked up, he would've seen Rea Adams asking him for directions, but the incredibly loud techno that he worked out to had basically blocked out all incoming noise from his surroundings, so it was only when his earbuds came out did he look up in surprise.

She was tall, was his first thought. Very, very tall. Probably the same height as me. In fact, had it not looked like she was struggling to stand up against the wind, she would have been the only person he'd met to intimidate him. As it was, however, she simply irritated him. Immensely.

Standing up to his full hight, and with a single eyebrow raised, he was so much bigger than her muscle-wise, that he seriously wondered what she'd been thinking. Glaring, he growled "What do you want?"

The girl was quaking in her boots. Not literally, I mean, she wasn't wearing boots, but when it turned out that you'd inadvertently pissed off a guy that could probably bench press you without breaking a sweat, well that was quite something. He looked at the girl. She was from Cochise, right? The Aussie. Daughter of a neuroscientist or something, very wealthy. Probably could rival his family with the amount they had in the bank actually. Although, he thought to himself, they'd be nouveau riche. The people who'd earned big-time last generation and were splashing the cash to get into higher society.

"You must be very new here if the accent is still harsh. A few months of being surrounded by yanks'll smoothen it out big-time." Even as he said this, he made sure to harshen his Scottish accent, making it more Glaswegian. Although his normal accent was closer to an Inverness one, he found that Glasgow's reputation tended to proceed it, what with the whole 'Glasgow Smile' that hack horror authors loved to give knife killers.

"As to where you are... This is the north side of Sumac park. If you want me to point you home, yqou'll need to tell me where 'home' is exactly."

"Will. Will McKinley. And yes, if the accent didn't tip you off, I'm not from around here." He dropped the over-the-top Glasgow accent and allowed his normal voice to come through. "I'm not actually from Glasgow." He did a quick calculation in his head for directions, before realising that they lived about two streets apart. Made sense really, there weren't many places for the more affluent to live within the city, whilst still remaining in luxury.

"Huh. You don't live too far away from where I live." He looked at the slowly darkening horizon, and watched as more and more people started to head out from Sumac. "Wouldn't be right leaving a girl on her lonesome just before nightfall. Not much crime here, but better safe than sorry." As he said this he started to untie the sweatshirt wrapped around his waist. No point in getting cold because he was careless.

He shot her a sideways glance as he shrugged on his top, noticing how her hair seemed a bit too shiny. Maybe she used tons of onditioner, but by the very tomboyish look he doubted that that would be her kind of thing. "Is that natural red hair? Pardon for asking, it's just bothering me is all."

Will zipped up the sweatshirt and turned to face her. "There are people with hair that dark, trust me, I've seen a few. The stereotype about Scots being redheads is actually quite true. Sure, most of them are carrot-tops, but there are a few. Your hair is way too shiny though, so you might want to town down the products." He still doubted she used products, but unless whoever had dyed it had cocked it up somehow, it was what he was going on.

"As to walking to the med centre, it's really no big issue. Like I said, my house is that way as well. Most of the higher-ups here live in that part of town. Your mum's a neurosurgeon or some such, isn't she? Must earn her a pretty penny, or you wouldn't be over there." He chuckled a bit. "I'm surprised actually. Normally the nouveau riche head to big cities, Syndey, Can... What's the capital again? Carbenarra? Something like that. Anyway. Places where you get seen and can see everyone else. Not a state best known for a gigantic hole in the ground. Places this are reserved for the poor sods born here and the retirees from Las Vegas."

Finally, he twigged onto something. She seemed incredibly nervous. She had obviously been nervous of him, but she was getting more and more highly strung. Her voice when she'd asked him to lead her to the med centre had warbled at the end. It could be simply she wasn't liking the idea of walking anywhere with a stranger that could overpower her in less than two seconds, but something was niggling his brain. It reminded him of his mother, when she had needed to go anywhere after dark. "Are..." He squinted at her. "Are you afraid of the dark?"

He almost burst out laughing. A guess based on the behaviour of his mother had caused her to freak out this much? "Rea, if you want to keep that a secret, I recommend you not blurt out a confirmation if someone asks you about it. In case you were wondering, you acted just like my mother. Tensed up when she saw how dark it was getting, then started getting panicky and rushed, and finally, your voice changed a bit. You don't have to be Sherlock to figure out that something's up. And, again, if you'd just said 'what? No...' I wouldn't have suspected it. You dug your own grave just then."

He started walking, uncapping the bottle of water he carried with him whenever he was running. "So, why did you end up moving here instead of a big city? Parents fall in love with the miles and miles of sand and fucking rock?" He took a swig. "Oh, and it's fine for me to call you Rea, right? You wouldn't prefer me to call you something else?" Manners, Will. You've already fucked up with the swearing, and not offering your name first. Try to act like nobility, even if you won't be nobility for a while.

"It'll take nothing to keep me quiet." He looked at here, trying to read her expression. "What, why would I tell everyone that you're afraid of the dark? So you can become a laughing stock? Some might find that funny or appropriate, but I really don't." He kept walking, making a turn.

He changed the subject again, just as he changed directions. In the distance, the light of the medical centre could be barley seen. "Nice. Luckier than me at least, which was basically 'Oh, we're going through a divorce and you can't stay here for whatever reason, so have fun in Arizona!"

He cursed under his breath before continuing. "Completely retarded. And the people I have to stay with are..." He took a deep breath, before continuing. "Never mind. This will just get me all worked up and lead neither of us will benefit from me getting angry."

"Of all the chances, with 7 billion people in the world? That's a tricky one. I mean, there are circumstances that matter, clearly, but the actual chances of any two people meeting would be two in 7.however-many-people in the world. So, very very very very low." Will paced onwards, starting to feel the chill even through his top.

"Normally I don't stay out this late. I've got no qualms about it, but my aunt feels like it world be 'ungentelmanly' to see me outside past about nine. I'm third in line for a minor lordship and she acts as if I'm supposed to be the next king or something." The medical center was closing in on them fast, and he stopped a streetlight away from the building before turning to face her.

"Here you go. I assume you know how to get to your house from here. Or if you don't, your mum does at least. Stay safe, and maybe check how big the person is before you do something to annoy them next time." Will winked and turned, flipping the hood of his sweatshirt up as he did so, and started to jog again. Maybe his aunt wouldn't bother bugging him this time.

((Will McKinley continued in A Lazy Saturday))
