McKenzie tipped her head to one side and then the other as she watched all of Emi's reactions, it was kinda like watching a baby- she was cute. When Emi turned the question-answer relationship around, McKenzie puckered her lips and tapped her chin in thought. Obviously, this was a question that she had thought about before, unfortunately, she never came to a conclusion. "I don't know... I want to do everything." McKenzie exclaimed with a giggle. The smile never left the girl's face as she narrowed her eyes to focus but still failed to narrow her answer, "I guess I'm not super good at anything in particular. Which is fine, I don't mind. I just want to have fun." McKenzie shrugged before adding with a nod, "I can join the music club too, then we can be together!" her voice went up towards the end of her exclamation. "I guess I'd have to learn an instrument, though..." McKenzie added after a moment of contemplation.
McKenzie let out a content sigh and leaned backward, crossing her ankles to balance herself from falling over. "I'm excited. I really can't wait to begin." McKenzie spoke before turning to face Emi, "How 'bout you?" she asked. Before Emi could answer the question, however, the faculty on the field began speaking. The lead woman, the headmistress, spoke very briefly before introducing the school marching band. Miss Pine seemed like a nice and upbeat woman, which was a relief considering the reputation behind the term 'headmistress'. McKenzie watched the band with a smile, and she tapped one foot along with the beat of the cheery song. McKenzie turned her attention away from the band briefly to see what Emi's reaction would be.
James smirked when Asher turned the compliments to him, he simply nodded. Despite the silence, he was clearly happy with the comment. "Who knows." James shrugged at Asher's question, "I do hope so. I mean, there's all these different kinds of people and so I guess they probably would make clubs. I guess." James muttered the last part, realizing that he wasn't even following his own logic. James was more of a doer than a thinker. "There better be sports," James added. Of course, the boy only applied to this school because his brother had, and he didn't mind the apparent academic rigor, it's not like he paid any attention anyways, but without sports, he'd find the school miserably dull. He wasn't much good at anything else.
A slight frown took place on James' face and he furrowed his brows in tough thought. But, when the sound of a loudspeaker echoed across the field, it caught James' attention and easily distracted him. The boy's entire body perked up as he listened, repeated the speaker's name under his breath in an attempt to prevent himself from forgetting it. As the band came out, excitement flooded through James' body. His mouth dropped open into a wide grin and he jumped to his feet, hands balled into fists, before quickly sitting back down before anyone around him could tell him to. "Well- if they have a marching band, I'm sure they've got clubs and sports!" James grinned, his body bouncing to the music being played.
Theodore flinched with surprise when the loudspeaker went off, his back being towards the field he hadn't noticed the head mistress' appearance. Theo glanced behind him, gritting his teeth at the predicament he was caught in before letting out a huff and sitting beside Milo. Theo put as much space between himself and the other boy as possible, but the bleachers were fairly crowded so he couldn't completely get away. The boy fixed his clothing and listened intently to the woman's speech, granted he felt that most of it was just senseless rambling. Theodore sat straight backed and attentive, but a soft groan escaped his parted lips when the marching band was invited onto the field. Theo didn't despise music, but he did despise the offensive eruption of sound that came from live bands. Still, besides the light noise and a momentary slip of expression in which he cringed slightly, you wouldn't be able to tell at all that he wasn't a fan of the band. He just focused ahead with a straight face and hoped that it would be over soon.
