her pencil across her notebook as she stared at the blank page in front of her.
While usually she was okay with working with the background of her roommate,
Ruby Rose, today she had been unable to focus. Instead of blowing up at Ruby,
she closed the notebook that had an outline and a few other notes as well as a few
books with her and placed them in a bag. Standing up and grabbing the bag, she
said that she was going out for a bit. Seeing Ruby nod in response to that, she
opened the door and headed out.
that she didn’t like her roommate at Beacon Academy, anything but that. It’s
just that certain times Ruby could be…a bit much. And sometimes she called Ruby
out on it. Then again, Ruby Rose was something of a particular genius when it
came to mathematics and physical education. In fact, she had been told by Ruby
that she was only here because of a scholarship or something along those lines.
dolt…” she muttered as she made her way towards one of the quieter places on
the college grounds: the library. Once she made her way to the building, she
opened the door and headed inside, giving a light nod to the Head Librarian,
Glynda Goodwitch. Once that was accomplished, she headed towards the table that
she usually frequented in the back…but as she did so, she noticed that someone
was already there. Curious, she moved with a little more pep in her step.
me?” she asked softly as she noticed the other student deep in thought as she was
biting the end of her pen. She didn’t want to disturb the raven-haired youth
but knew that she had to. She would have never forgiven anyone who had done
that to her after all. ‘She is a beauty though…’ she silently admitted,
hoping that the girl wouldn’t be able to see the blush on her face. Seeing the
girl had looked towards her with a question on her face.
“Um…yes?” she asked, staring up at the person in front of her.
“Do you mind
if I sit here?” she asked, noticing how the girl’s feline ears were twitching
all…though I might be distracted just a little with a beautiful girl next to
me,” she said with a light tease, causing Weiss to scowl at that. “But before you
sit down, can you tell me your name?” the ravenette asked.
Yours?” she asked trying to not sound too annoyed as she sat down across from
Blake Belladonna,” she replied as Weiss sat down and got her books out of her
bag as Weiss got to work after acknowledging that she had heard Blake’s name.
Staring at the blank page in front of her, Weiss tried to think of how to start
the essay, but the words weren’t coming to her and she sighed lightly. She was
still also a little annoyed at what Blake had done and wondered if it would
just be better to move to another table instead. However…something stopped her
from doing that. Maybe it was the girl’s beauty, or her work ethic, but
something about Blake Belladonna was causing Weiss to stay seated.
trouble?” Blake asked after a few minutes of seeing Weiss copying the same tick
she had when contemplating something. She also half-expected Weiss to just
brush her off. However, after a few minutes of silence…she put her pen down
next to the notebook and nodded.
don’t mind…” she admitted before Blake nodded and shifted chairs so that she
was next to the white-haired girl, noticing that Weiss’s cheeks were a light
crimson as of now, but chose not to comment about it. After being asked about
the assignment, Blake let out a small smile before nodding lightly.
it’s for your Shakesperian Literature class…then you came to the right girl,”
Blake said with a smile. “And since the topic is related to one of my favorite
plays…” she commented before writing the first line. “You don’t have to keep
that line, but I find that just staring at a blank page is only going to make
you think and think about what you want to write. If you write
something…anything really, then that’s when the writing stops and your brain
stops thinking as it puts words on the paper, or screen,” she said before
noticing the time. “Anyways…I have another class to get to, but…maybe I can see
you around more often?” she asked.
Besides…I think I can get a lot more work done here than I can in my dorm room.
My roommate…she sometimes can’t take a hint when I need her to be quiet,” she
admitted as Blake laughed at that. ‘What a beautiful laugh…’ she thought
to herself but didn’t say anything as she returned Blake’s wave of goodbye and
saw the black-haired female walk out of the library before getting back to her
should do homework here more often…’ she thought as the image of Blake came
to her mind, causing her to blush lightly at how beautiful she looked.
Belladonna had been sitting at the table in the back for the past ten minutes
staring at what she had last wrote for her book and was deciding on to how to
go about it. And while she loved her roommate, Yang Xiao Long, like the sister
she never had…it was the times when Yang had gotten drunk was when it was
nearly impossible for her to work. And seeing how Yang was tipsy when she
entered the room, Blake had quickly, and quietly, exited the room after
stuffing her writing book, a few pens and pencils, and other small nick knacks
into her bag before leaving. At least it wasn’t as bad as the last time…which
caused the feline faunus to outright ban any alcoholic beverage from ever
coming into their dorm room.
lightly as she found herself in front of the library building, she was
surprised that she had been lost in thought as she walked here. Mentally
shrugging lightly at that, she headed towards the door and opened it before
heading on through, nodding her head at Ms. Goodwitch once the blonde-haired
staff member came into view.
Belladonna, so nice to see you. Take it you need a place to write in peace?”
she asked as Blake nodded. Glynda then told Blake about the table in the back,
where she would most likely not be disturbed by anyone. Getting a verbal thanks
at the advice, Blake had made her way towards the aforementioned table and sat
down before starting to work in peace. She wasn’t sure how long it was until
she was finished with what she had already written and was just about to write
down some words. “What to do next…?” she muttered to herself before placing the
end tip of the pen in her mouth, lightly biting into the cap as she pondered on
it. That is, until a voice broke through her resolve.
me. Do you mind if I sit here?” a beautiful white-haired girl had asked,
causing her to silently wonder why she was asking instead of just sitting down
like most other people did. Regardless of her reason, she was actually a little
glad that the young woman had asked…mentally adding a plus to the girl.
all…though I might be distracted just a little with a beautiful girl next to
me. But before you sit down, can you tell me your name?” Blake asked. After the
words came out of her mouth, she was mentally appalled. ‘Why would I say
something like that?! Sure I think she’s beautiful, but I really shouldn’t have
told a complete stranger that…and now she’ll probably think I’m some weirdo or
something…’ Blake thought, mentally berating herself as she did so.
Blake Belladonna,” she replied as she saw Weiss sit down and get a few books
out before starting to work on something, which she did the same. Starting to
write a few paragraphs after the exchange, she noticed that Weiss was having
trouble with whatever she was here for with and decided to ask if she wanted
help. “Having trouble?” she decided to use as her words for asking for help,
hoping that the white-haired female didn’t take it the wrong way. And after
hearing nothing but silence for a few moments…she had a feeling that she was
right. However…a few minutes later and she heard Weiss asking for some help.
Deciding it would be better to be next to the girl rather than across from her,
she listened intently as Weiss explained her assignment as Blake desperately
hoped that the girl didn’t hear the loud and fast beats that her heart was
giving out due to the proximity of her.
then…mind if I…?” she asked as Weiss shook her head. With permission granted,
Blake took the notebook and pen into her hand before writing a few sentences.
Once she was done, she passed the two back to their respective owner. “You don’t have to keep that line, but I find
that just staring at a blank page is only going to make you think and think
about what you want to write. If you write something…anything really, then
that’s when the writing stops and your brain stops thinking as it puts words on
the paper, or screen.” she said before thinking about telling her about how she
came to that philosophy but ultimately decided against it. “Anyways…I need to
get going since I have a late class. But maybe I’ll see you around Weiss” she
commented before leaving the library, a soft smile on her face as she did so.
huh? Maybe I should start doing my writing exclusively at the library from now
on…especially if it means I can bump into her more often. She was definitely
cute…I just hope that she doesn’t see me as a complete weirdo…
