Laila was running off in the halls, she was supposed to deliver some papers to the principals office for her teacher. She wasn't running because she was trying to get it done faster. She just liked feeling her brown hair flying in the wind. She wasn't really running that fast if someone actually watched her, kind of jump floating. A fun little glide to halfway across the building and a break from her classmates shenanigans. She was sure that one of the were about to pull a prank on the teacher between now and finish after her return.
"You look so happy when you're away from other people."
The words came out deep and methodical, but overlapped by a young boys voice. Ghoul stood in the corridor of the hall, he was young and therefore shorter than her, but more importantly didn't go to this school. Or at least didn't used to go to this school, now he was wearing the lower classmen outfit. He opened his jaw as tentacles flew out past his lips making a mocking kiss like motion before he slurped them back up. He took a bite out of his fruit rollup chewing at it as he studied her every move.
Laila stopped when hearing that voice, already regretting not moving forward. Her heart dropped seeing Ghoul in her school and worse he was wearing the lower classmen's outfit. The school already tried working with sins earlier, but that was canceled thanks to Moirae. Maybe Mrs. Strider convinced the school to take them in again. Seeing him do that kissy face unnerved her.
"Shouldn't you be around your classmates? If that uniform isn't just for show," she questioned. Part of her wanted to fold her arms, but she wasn't going to show him that her mood shifted more than she already has.
Ghoul shrugged, he slid his pasty pale hand in his pocket retrieving out a black hall pass. The flat rectangular edge of it slipping out of his fingers hanging only by the thread pulled through the circular cut at the top. He pushed the hall pass back down into his deep pant pocket before looking back at her. For a moment it looked like he was just going to stay, but his black painted finger nails pressed up against the wall before pushing himself off, "I don't really get why you hate my kind so much. We only do sinful little deeds so you can appreciate the finer moments," He smirked walking past her, his finger just barely high enough to flick her hair playfully as he walked by. "Guess it's just like your family to judge us wayward souls though."
"I don't need your assistance to appreciate moments. I wouldn't say it is hate either, it is a loathing as you interjected yourself into my class's project. No "hi I'm joining the group" just came in and destroying the system. Besides you "wayward souls" have done plenty against my family to have reasonable doubt," Laila hissed. She narrowed her eyes as Ghoul insulted her family. She turned into the direction of the office and marched her way there. The plan was to get back to class and act like this never happen.
Ghoul outwardly laughed, it bellowed out like a low howl ending in a ghoulish ice cold breath that he sucked in like someone taking their last breath, "So cute hearing fleshies like you calling me out. Whatever though, I'm getting back to class," He said in air quotes before heading for the nearest school exit. For fighting so much to be a part of the school he didn't have any issue with cutting class early. Almost like the whole matter didn't have any meaning to him in the end.
More curiously was the sight of a lilac dress, just a glimpse of it as Ghoul opened the exit and closed it behind. It looked eerily close to the dress Tierney wore to school for after school rehearsals.
