Goddamn ham and cheese sandwiches. What would society be without you?

Christopher sat in the school courtyard, stuffing himself with his lunch, a sketchbook on his lap and a pencil nestled behind his ear. He'd been sketching in between bites of his sandwich, and was pretty much done putting down the idea he'd had in his head.

It was a character for a new session of DnD that was starting in a few days time. Christopher like to sketch out the character ideas he'd created, before putting stats to them. He felt that it made his characters more alive.

Having finished sandwich, he took the pencil from behind his ear.

Someone passed by just as their pone rang. It was a generic melody usually used as a phone's default ringtone...

...But it gave him an idea.

He flipped over a page and began to scribble down an idea. A new melody. A great catalyst for another song.

Christopher looked at the sketchbook, before smiling widely. He suddenly wanted school to be over as fast as possible, just so he could go home and try it out.

He was so happy he didn't even realize that, from a distance, it looked like he was smiling at his crotch.

Naomi walked into the Davison Courtyard with her bagged lunch by her side. She didn't often venture into the courtyard of the school, preferring to eat inside away from any insects that might have found their way into the courtyard, but today's weather had been so nice that she decided to head out into the courtyard anyway.

She walked around, seeing a few people dotted around, most people she knew but wasn't really in the mood to talk to, but one person stuck out. Her boyfriend Christopher was sitting over near the other side of the courtyard, hastily devouring his lunch. She smiled, she hadn't known Chris was going to be out here, so she presumed she ought to surprise him.

She walked up behind Chris, from her angle it looked like he was staring at his crotch, but she presumed he was scribbling in a notebook or using his phone or something of the sorts. Since he was obviously distracted by whatever he was doing, she decided to mess with him a little. She got up right behind him and said boo as she gave him a playful shove. She smiled wholeheartedly, having good fun at Chris's expense.

Oh shi-

Christopher jumped as the voice suddenly came from behind him. He quickly tried to stand up, in an instinctive attempt to move away from the sound. At the same time, he turned to see who it was.

"Oh hey Nao-"

That's when his foot caught a rock, and he fell backwards as his butt landed on the ground. His arms flailing, had sent the sketchbook flying high into the air.

Crap! Protect the notes! Protect the music!

He didn't have enough time to reposition himself to catch it with his hands. Luckily, he managed to stop the book with his lower legs, as it landed on his raised shins like some sort of weird human desk. He quickly took the book back in his hands, while shooting a dirty glance at his girlfriend. Well, you know, not a real dirty glance. A fake dirty glance. A not-so dirty glance.

Whatever you'd call it.

"Hey..." he said. He was going to follow up with "You could have killed me!" or something along those lines, but he stopped when he got an idea.

Payback for almost ruining his new song.

Quickly looking around to make sure no one was looking, he finished his sentence with

"It's nice down here. You should join me!"

He then quickly sat up, reaching towards Naomi, grabbing her hand to try and pull her down with him.

Naomi giggled as she watched Chris flail around from the chain of events that started with her playful shove. Her giggling was stopped, however, when she felt her hand being grabbed and a strong pull downwards. Before she could react she tumbled over next to Chris and joined him on the ground.

She gave a little gasp upon landing and rolled over to face Chris. "You bastard." She said playfully. She picked up her beret from next to her, as it had fallen off of her head when Chris pulled her down, and put it back on.

She sat up and laughed. "Well that was fun." She picked up her lunch from the ground; she was quite thankful it was in a sturdy lunchbox. She flipped it open and pulled out the sandwich her mother had packed for her. "So... what's that you were working on there Chris? Is it a song?" She said, before taking a bite of her sandwich.

"Yeah," he answered, "I got an idea for a great melody. Cellphone," he finished pointing his pencil in the direction that the person had gone. It was a simple melody, nothing too fancy. It would be great for a happy hardcore track.

He wanted to try something different with every track produced, even if only slightly. He looked over at Naomi, eating her lunch.

He got another idea.

"Hey," he said, putting the notebook in front of her, "What do you think? Do you think you could play this?"

On the flute, of course.

So he got it from a ringtone? Naomi thought. Interesting. She took another bite of her sandwich before Chris turned to her and asked her if she could play the melody after putting his notebook in front of her.

She looked at it. "Uhm..." She uttered, before swallowing the bit of sandwich she was eating. "Let's see..." She began humming the melody to herself as she followed it on the piece of paper. She contemplated. "Yeah, I could play it. No notes are too low or too high for me to go." She flashed a friendly smile. "Do you want me to play your little melody for you Chris?"

If only she had her flute on her right now, she could play it for him with no hesitation.

"Yeah, I mean you know..." he said, "for my next song, I was thinking of maybe having a live instrument in there."

He didn't recall ever doing something like that before. Maybe if it worked out well he could do it more often in the future.

Well, we'll see if or when that happens. One step at a time.

"I'm sure it'll be great. And hey, when I become famous I'll say that you were there for me when I was just starting," he said flashing a smile

Well, just starting isn't the best term, really. I have a following already...

He leaned in towards Naomi, going for the hand on the shoulder move.

"Yep. 'Track title' by MidnightGopher featuring... uh..."

It had occurred to Chris that he didn't know Naomi's internet handle, if she even had one. He couldn't remember whether or not he'd asked.

Whoops.

"...featuring DirectorBright?" She said, finishing his sentence.

She scooted closer to Chris and rested her head on his shoulder. "It's alright that you forgot my internet handle. Although I'm not sure I ever told you." She looked at him and poked his nose. "And you better credit me when you become famous." She made a pout face. "If you didn't I would be really mad," she said, in a silly voice.

She relaxed a bit. "Anyway yeah, I would love to be in one of your songs. Can't say I'm the best flute player in the world but I can say that I'm pretty decent." She picked up the last bits of her sandwich, popping the portion into her mouth while keeping her head on Chris's shoulder. "So... do you want to do anything after school today? We could work on the song if you wanted."

"Ah, thank you," he said, writing down the name in his notebook. Now he shouldn't ever forget. He felt his heart rate raise slightly as Naomi came closer.

"Yeah, don't worry," he said in response to her joke. "When I become famous, I'll make sure you're in every picture."

"As for after school... yeah. We can start working on the song today," he finished, patting her head a few times before standing up from where he was sitting. "I'll meet you after school, and we can head over to my house."

He looked at his watch. Five minutes to class.

"As for now, though, I must go," he said, pointing dramatically at the sky. "The coding planet needs me." He held that pose for a few seconds before letting his hand drop to his side.

"See you after school!"

And so, slinging his bag on his shoulder, he headed to class.

((Christopher Schwartz continued elsewhere...))

((I forgot about this I'm so so sorry ;~;))

Naomi sat back as she watched Chris leave. He was such a dork, but a lovable dork.

She stood up from where she was sitting and smiled. She was looking forward to seeing Chris after school today. In the meantime though, lunch was almost over and she needed to go ahead and head off to class.

She picked up her things and walked out of the courtyard and into the normal cafeteria. There she glanced around for a moment before heading off into the school abroad.
