Song Birds and Magpies 03
By Gundamzero and Pureheart-169

"... ... ... how can you burn a skillet?" He watched his friend baffled. He'd never even managed that one, and he had tried to burn one; several times... in the name of science and stuff. Well mostly in the name of science the other half was sheer Zygy, just like when he put bird eggs into the microwave to see what would happen as a child.

He did fall again, this time on purpose so that his legs were hanging over the back of the chair. He took a deep breath and became quiet for a few moments. Finally thought set in head he spoke up "We should go do something neither of us has tried! It might go badly, but it'll be a great experience right? Just got to think of something that can qualify as never done... I'm pretty sure your not the type to do the stuff I do, so no breaking into the Coalition building to re-arrange files...." He thought hard, trying to find something that fit the other.

"Ryo Buddy? What is something you have always wanted to do, but haven't had the guts to do it?" There! A much better place to start!

"You, ah...leave it on the s-stove...and forget the w-water or oil..." He flushed darkly, hiding behind his hair. "I, uh, really s-suck at cooking." He smiled shyly, remembering the chaos and his burned palms. He couldn't remember much afterwards, he'd apparently been knocked unconscious when Kouki attempted to put it out and swung the fire extinguisher. >> He rubbed the back of his head unconsciously.

He watched him worriedly, making sure he was okay; it probably looked strange, the six-foot boy leaning over the bench to peer at the shorter one. "Ah...I'd r-rather not fight, no...I s-suck at it anyways." He thought shyly, tilting his head. "I've...always w-wanted to h-hack a computer. So I could f-find birth r-records and stuff." And find out some of the strange things he didn't remember. Why had his sister carried him to Fernando? Why did he forget? Biting his lip, he thought. "I-I'd also like to t-try cooking. Sometime. Wh-When someone's a-around to stop me from b-burning dishes." He thought quietly. "I've n-never had the guts to d-do a lot of th-things," he admitted quietly., flushing.

"Computer hacking I'm not to good at, though I know people that are! Maybe I can direct you for lessons some time!" He grinned, already making a list of people for Ryo to call that wouldn't hang up on him. Enaev was another choice, as while he wasn't a hacker, he had access to a bunch of stuff. "I''ve gotten to watch a hacker at work before, it's kinda interesting... but enough of that and on to... cooking?"

"I have no issue on showing you cooking... but.... you must understand that what I would be showing you stays absolutely secret. You see are type and cooking do not go hand in hand, but I have developed a technique that allows one of mind to learn the art to master it as well as any other Chef!" Yes he was possibly going over board, but the drama was part of the fun. "I'd also need to go to the store and find a kitchen. And while I have the funds and sense to find the store... I don't suspect that Cruix has rent-a-kitchens."

"Hey I know! Have you ever been streaking? We can do that instead!" He announced suddenly, it was an options and he wanted to see Ryo's look.

He shrugged, sighing. "I-I didn't think s-so...hacking is hard." Yes he'd attempted. Once. He'd been caught by Elex and subsequently Rick-rolled into near-tears. And then tickled into submission and apologies. That had been interesting. "That...would be interesting, I-I'd like that. Thank you." He smiled, lightly flushing.

He listened, enjoying Zygy's production immensely. "I would n-never tell secrets, Z-Zygy. I don't do th-that. And y-yes, I know our t-type typically f-f-fails at cooking...I'm c-curious as to how you o-overcame that..." He grinned quietly. "I...m-my house has a kitchen. D-Dad and M-mom wouldn't mind, I'm sure.."

And then he flushed beet red, eyes going huge. "Wh-wh-....what? N-No, I d-don't think..." He shifted in his seat, staring at the copper-haired boy with not only embarrassment and panic but almost fear in his eyes. "N-No, we sh-shouldn't and e-everyone..." His hair fell into his face, but from his position Zygy could see his panicked expression.

'Oh Crap' Zygy pulled himself around so he was sitting up quickly. Ryo was reacting to nudity the way he reacted to being locked up in a closet alone. Enaev had felt so guilty about that after the fact! It was great! But right now. "Hey Ryo I was just kidding! You don't strip publically the first time you meet some one! Not normally!." He reached over to try and place a had to the strung out boys shoulder. "You don't ever have to do that... I can do it alone, you can watch it on the news." He chuckled.

"Um... maybe we could go to your parent's house... and I can help you cook something for them?" He tried to steer the subject away, trying not to become excitable himself. Not what he needed right now, not when he was trying ti save his just started friendship with Ryo.

Zygy rarely felt guilty about his little pranks, but this was a disaster. Pranks were fun, some one got a bit upset and then you laughed it all off. No one was laughing, and it seemed like Ryo was in some type of pain over the matter. What had happened to the guy that mad him so... Anti-clingy. That was the first thing that came to mind. But it wasn't his business, not right now any way. Maybe he could try again in a bit.

"Sounds great! To the store?" He offered a hand, knowing Ryo was possibly not going to take it. But that was okay; Zygy was learning him.

Ryo nodded shyly, taking a deep breath to steady himself. He didn't know how to react or talk for a moment, but then he rubbed his arms and steadied himself, using the bench to get up. He didn't take Zygy's hand - not yet. He didn't' know what to think of this strange boy. But he did give him a hesitant smile as he spoke. "Y-Yes, I'll t-take you there."

*****

"Hey! Hey! Ryo! Check out my Melons!" Oldest line in the book, a silly gag that involved holding fruit to your chest. He almost had everything that he needed, now he was just goofing off. The trip though the Mini mart had taken upwards of an Hour, mainly as Zygy had taken to showing Ryo how anything in the store could become a bad joke. Another span of that time had been spent talking to the different store attendants, asking about things and being picky. Something... that Zygy was in no other area.

Now normally you asked the other to feel your Melons. Instead he opted that Ryo might Die and thus ended with the more mature "Ready to check out?" He secretly thanked that he did have his card on him, and that he had started doing things around the office to earn his own money. Otherwise this wouldn't be happening.

He facepalmed at the joke, sure he was going to have a permanent red mark on his fiery face. He hadn't stopped blushing since they entered the store. Apparently Zygy knew a million bad jokes and how to use them all in the span of an hour. Although he was amused at Zygy's pickiness in produce and what they bought. It made him wonder about this fellow - he obviously COULD be serious.

"Ch-check out, right. Y-Yeah, I'm good." He smiled, relieved that joke had not gone the direction he'd thought it would. He headed to the front with the copper-haired boy, receiving a smile from the cashier, a girl he knew apparently. She chattered excitedly with him for a bit, him stuttering and staring at the cart as she grinned and talked. Eventually they were bagged and ready to go; the girl waved goodbye.

Ryo sighed, tugging on his shirt. "S-So...you want t-to go s-straight to my p-place?" He was grateful Zygy hadn't made any horrid jokes while they talked to the young lady - he might have died in embarrassment. "Or d-do you need anything else, Zygy?"

"I'm all set! Only way that I couldn't do this at this point is if you didn't have a stove to work with! And if that is the case we can start a firs outside and do it the rustic way." He grinned excitedly. "I think grocery girl thinks your cute! Dose she always flirt with you like that?" He took it as flirting anyway, and he wasn't normally to bad at guessing these things with Woman. He had an odd sort of understanding of their minds, and as it got better... he liked being around them less.

What did it mean? He really wasn't sure, but he'd figure it out at some point.

"I bet you get that from a lot of girls. You can sing, your sensitive, taller then most of them. All things that girls like in guys! And on top of that you have exotic eyes and hair. Total and complete chick magnet stuff." He was rambling watching to make sure he wasn't pushing Ryo to hard, ready to back off to other topic on a moments notice.

He continued walking with Ryo, destination not fully known

He nodded slowly, leading him through the city carefully. He was balancing a couple bags, trying to help, but the mention of flirting nearly made him drop one.

"A-Ah...uhm, n-no, I don't th-think she is. Sh-she attended s-school with me, a long t-time ago. She was b-best friends with my best f-friend, Kumijara Luuki, s-so she was asking about h-her and m-me and wh-what we're d-doing." His face heated, and he shrugged lightly. "I d-don't s-see why sh-she'd flirt with me..."

He turned brighter red, hiding his face behind his long hair again. "A-Ah, no. I-I...I don't kn-know, I j-just..." To be honest, speaking to most girls flustered him. He found himself stuttering more and looking at his hands until he knew the girl really well or thought it out. HE smiled, slightly saddened and completely awkward but managing to keep his cool. "I d-don't think so. Wh-what about you? Bad b-boy type an all...?" He knew plenty of jokesters like Zygy in school. They'd been the popular ones.

"To be completely honest I've never even kissed a girl" Zygy laughed. "I always screw up, even though I can charm just about any girl I meet if I put my mind to it. Just that last second before your lips actually touch... I never get past it. I've learned to live around it though, and it has given me a good number of female friends." He shrugged "Part of the reason I took up cooking was to impress girls, cus universally they love Chocolate. It's a strange mystery as to why... that can not be solved."

He looked to be deep in thought a moment, before changing the topic from dating to something they might both enjoy, "So... do you have... an Ability? You know like being able to walk through walls or make fireballs and stuff?" That had to be a good topic, everyone liked their abilities... hopefully.

He smiled, flushing. "Th-That's perfectly fine...n-neither have I." He tilted his head at Zygy's explanation, slightly confused. "I c-can't even get that cl-close...I get t-too nervous and I-I can't. But it's j-just a part of wh-who I am, I guess." He shifted, looking thoughtful. "I don't kn-know why girls like ch-chocolate, but you're r-right. I've o-only met one Saklarian g-girl who didn't, and th-that was a psychological th-thing." He smiled, thinking back. "You're v-very right. Hn."

He started at the question, then paused to word his answer. "I...do. My ability is a-actually centric on my v-voice; I can c-control people through s-singing." He had used it many times before; it was a helpful tool in a pinch. "I can s-sing certain songs to m-make you do c-certain things. Wh-what about you? What is y-your ability?" Honestly curious. His gold eyes focused on the shorter boy, watching intently as if waiting for a physical show.


Zygy thought how to explain things, he barely understood it himself. "I... can fall asleep on demand and slip into what Babylon calls the Ethereal realm. That is about it. As far as I know it serves no purpose other then to knock me out. If I'm not careful I do it on accident, and thus I have to wear a medical band that says I'm a Narcoleptic and not to give me anything while I'm out. Normally I'm with some one so it's fine, but when I'm alone it sucks..."

"I like you power better! It sounds really cool; though you wouldn't want to abuse it." He honestly meant it, even if he was already thinking of ways to abuse such a gift.
