Title: Valentine's Friendship Candy Go!

Endo Naoki didn't expect to get anything for Valentine's Day. Good thing Ren Aizawa is there to shatter those expectations!

OOC - IC Date:

As school lets out for the day, various Juuban students mill past the front gate, most of them happy to be free from another day full of academic pursuits. Some of them even cast a curious glance at the dark-haired girl standing right outside the entrance to the school grounds, clad in the easily-recognizable uniform of the Infinity Institute's high school division. What is she doing here of all places? Well, that question is easily answered by the box wrapped in gold-foil and adorned with a red bow she clutches in her hands. Ahh. Obviously Valentine's candy. Looks like a certain someone who attends Juuban is going to be the lucky recipient of some tasty chocolate! Isn't that nice?

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

Endo is one of those students who happens to be happy to get out of class. Not too happy, because he has to go to work now, but it at least requires less thought. His day has been spent not too differently than any other day at Juuban, despite the Valentine affection of his peers and classmates clogging the halls. He hasn't paid it much mind. He has more important things to think about than girls. Or one girl. Who he might have thought about a little. Just a bit.

Who happens to be hanging around outside when he exits. Endo doesn't spot Ren at first, the boy moving at a brisk walk. He's smiling as he goes, waving farewell to several other classmates, heading to work. He kind of half-stutters on his way when his head swivels over past Ren, the boy blinking, questioning, "Ren-san?"

<Pose Tracker> Ren Aizawa [Infinity Institute (10)] has posed.

Ren doesn't seem too nervous, unlike most girls who give boys gifts. Or maybe she's just maintaining a fairly good poker face. Either way she leans against the wall casually, keeping her eyes trained solely on the ground. It's only when she hears her name called that she looks up, spotting Endo standing just off to the side. A bright smile is on her face in a flash.

"Endo-kun!" She calls, pushing off the wall to quickly close the distance between the two of them. The box of candy is hidden behind her the whole while. Sneaky! "I'm glad I caught you before work!" Missing him would have been real bad. Then, without any sort of ceremony, she produces the box from behind her back, presenting it to him. "Happy Valentine's Day!"

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

Endo seems surprised to see Ren waiting for him, though he returns her smile as the girl moves over toward him. "What are you doing here?" He scoots off to the side of the gate, work forgotten for the moment. He can spare a few minutes, after all, if there's something up. "Did something-"

"Ah?" He's taken aback, head tilting when Ren offers the box out toward him. It takes a few seconds to process what she's doing, and then he asks, "For me? For Valentines day?" He asks, like she hadn't said it, or like she might not know what that means.

<Pose Tracker> Ren Aizawa [Infinity Institute (10)] has posed.

"Yes! For you! For Valentine's Day!" Ren repeats, moving the box over closer to him. "I figured you could use a gift." She then pauses, eyebrows going up slightly. "Unless you're secretly the most popular boy in Juuban and have gotten tons of chocolates from lovestruck girls." Her face is serious, jaw clenched, as she bores a hole into Endo with her gaze alone.

Then there's laughter. The kind that garners attention from passerbys for a moment or two before they move onward. Ren is obviously joking!

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

"Oh." Endo's lips spread into a wide, goofy sort of smile. "Okay." He reaches out to pluck the box from Ren's hands, lifting the cover briefly before his eyes go back to the girl again. Her intense face makes him wave his hand furiously in denial, but he realizes she's joking before he can voice his innocence.

"Thank you. I didn't get you anything, though. I mean-I didn't know if" He seems unable to find the right words, another bright smile lighting his face after. "I mean, I was scared you'd try and beat me up again, if I got you the wrong kind of chocolate." Now it's just turn to make fun.

<Pose Tracker> Ren Aizawa [Infinity Institute (10)] has posed.

"Don't worry. You have time to get me something in return later." Ren assures with a nod. "...If you want to." She adds in hastily, blushing a bit. This gift to Endo isn't part of some sort of long overdue love confession. It's just something done out of friendship. Endo's been such great company -- and not to mention a great ally as of recent. It just feels /right/ to show him how much she appreciates everything he's done thus far.

"Beat you up? Come on now, Endo-kun!" Well, the zoo incident was an exception, and even then that conflict didn't last too long before apologies were dished out. "Chocolate it chocolate too, silly." She playfully smacks his shoulder. "I'd be happy with whatever you got me."

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

"Of course I want to! I can't not, now that you've given me this." Endo's smile remains, the boy waving his newly received box in Ren's direction. "I'll just have to think of something good." A somber nod follows that.

"Ahh, I need to go to work. But, if you're not busy, we can split this on the way there." The box is offered back toward Ren, the top of it cracked open to reveal the candy inside for her picking.

<Pose Tracker> Ren Aizawa [Infinity Institute (10)] has posed.

"Well, if you insist..." Ren is just happy he accepted her gift! "Ah, ok then. I can walk with you." She reaches in to pluck a chocolate from the box and pop it into her mouth. Mmmm. "Let's go!"

<Pose Tracker> Endo Naoki [Juuban Public School (10)] has posed.

Endo seems pleased with the results, plucking a few chocolates for himself on the trip. He'll go as far as the subway, taking what remains of the box after that. It's a pleasant walk, the boy parting with a cheery note of, "I'll see you later, Ren-san. Maybe I can get a day off." The chocolate has clearly had good effects.
