Brendan was happy to be alone in the library as he could have some privacy from his friends and other people that he wanted to avoid seeing. He was sitting at one of the table and he was staring down at the book that he had not picked up that long ago. The Hobbit. He honestly had no idea why he grabbed it. He more or less did it randomly. He didn't really read fantasy books. He was normally into the genres of horror and romance. But he had been in the mood for something different. Comedies weren't something that he was a bit fan of. So that was a no. He didn't really like science fiction. So that was a no as well. Drama books felt like they would be too serious for him. So he threw that option out of the window. He would have been up for a crime book. But his mood was focused on something else. So he settled for fantasy. He was strangely looking forward to reading it. It was something new for him to get into.

Maybe he would enjoyed it. Maybe he wouldn't. A lot of books had pros and cons. Some of his favourite books had flaws and he had acknowledged those in the past. So he was looking forward to the challenge of reading The Hobbit. He wasn't going to back down from it. He couldn't help but smile a little. He couldn't believe that he was getting so confident over a book. Now if only he was confident to stand up to bullies again....

That's never going to happen, Brendan. You're too afraid to do that and you know it. So just give up on trying to be the hero.

The Hero...? Brendan let out a quiet sigh and he rubbed his hand over his face. He needed to stop thinking like that. He would only make himself feel worse about him. He just needed to concentrate on reading. Reading books always made him feel happier. Even books that were terrible made him feel good afterwards. And reading other books always managed to inspire him to come up with ideas for his stories. Which he was currently trying to work on at home. Maybe he could ask Penny for advice when he got home?

Brendan nodded to himself as it was a good plan for him to do. "Alright, let's get started on reading you. I'm really curious to see how you will go." Brendan was talking to himself as he assumed that no one was in the library and he opened up to the first page of The Hobbit.

Brendan didn't even get the chance to actually stand reading as someone was searching around the tables for something and it was too much of a distraction. He closed the book and he slowly looked up to see who was disturbing him from reading. Oh. It was Maxim from his math class. Brendan hadn't spoken to him that much. But he would like to. Brendan wanted to get out of his comfort zone more. He really needed to make more friends. But would Maxim like to talk to him? He couldn't really force Maxim to talk to him. It wasn't really in his nature to do so. Brendan wasn't that social with others. Even though he wanted to try. He should at least give it a shot. Brendan could at least try to greet him, now that he had noticed Maxim. Although, Maxim looked like he was upset about something. That wasn't good.

Brendan suddenly bolted up from his chair and he was starting to stutter nervously. "A-A-Are you alright, M-Maxim...?" His voice was weak and feeble. He feel his face heating up with embarrassment and he quickly sat back down.

He wanted to go and hide in a hole somewhere. Why did he act like that? Was it because of Maxim's expression? Possibly. But he had just done something awkwardly. In a library of all places. What was wrong with him? Was it because he was nervous? Talking to people made him nervous in general. He always didn't know how to say things the right way to others.

"I-I-I mean.... H-Hi...?"

Brendan blinked. Then he blinked again. Maxim wanted to sit with him...? He never thought that Maxim would. To be honest., he thought that Maxim would leave on his merry way. To go and look for whatever he was looking for. Unless Brendan had what he wanted. That would be very awkward then. However, if he could try to strike up a conversation. Then he could get to know Maxim more. Maybe even become friends with him. Brendan hoped that Maxim wouldn't think he was too strange because of how he was. He needed to be calm. Just talk normally.

"O-Oh, uh.... I-I don't mind if you do. Not r-really...." Brendan was speaking a bit less nervously and his hands gripped onto The Hobbit book that was in front of him. "...Y-You looked really upset about something. So.... So...."

Brendan bit his lip. He wanted to sound less like he was scared of talking to Maxim. But it was kind of difficult for him to do so. He really needed to get out of his comfort zone more. And have more confidence in himself.

"....I just wanted to c-check on you.... To make sure that you are a-alright...."
