<div style="background-color: #fff; width: 375px; font-family: courier new; font-size: 11px; text-transform: uppercase; text-align: justify; line-height: 80%; letter-spacing: -1px;">you know that there are people in the world annoyed with all the other people in the world? and of all these angry people in the world i am the angriest boy. when i was spat onto the earth in a stream of guts why, mother nature, that green-eyed slut i wasn't the first to get forced from a cut one to whom i still shall stay stuck. well if you think i'm being harsh, well baby, keep on counting stars 'cause i hate everyone-----</div>
<div style="background-color: #fff; padding-bottom: 15px; padding-top: 25px; width: 375px; text-align: justify; font-family: calibri; font-size: 11px; line-height: 102%;">"yeah, sociology. as fascinating as it might be to learn how to talk in front of crowds, i can't say that i've ever had a problem getting my opinions across." nik leaned up against the counter casually as he spoke, surveying the girl. she looked pretty normal. no particularly noticeable features, though her eyes were a clear shade of blue for somebody with dark hair. while he took pride in his ability to read people, appearances couldn't tell you much. that's why you actually had to converse with people, get to know them. as he talked, he glanced casually at the cover of the book he had set on the counter, taking note of the name of the professor printed below the title. "professor montrose, right? yeah, i've heard good things about his courses."
it was a topic that nik both found fascinating and wanted nothing to do with. he was studying to become a sociology major, prelaw track, so of course he would find the law side interesting. and the psychology side was also incredibly intriguing, he wouldn't deny that. but he was terrified to open a psych book, scared to death that he would find something that would confirm his psychologist's suspicions and his fears, something that would jump out of the page and say "you're not normal." it wouldn't be a surprised to find out that he had something wrong with him- at times, he wondered how there couldn't be. but he still didn't want to have that knowledge stuck in his face in something as permanent as a book.
nik followed the girl through the bookstore to a familiar section, where the prelaw books were kept. he accepted the small stack that she handed him, thumbing through them with a feigned interest, though he was actually tucking the titles away for future reference. "thanks." he opened the cover of the first book, enjoying the crack of the hardcover signifying that he was the first person to open that particularly copy. he loved that sound, of a new book. it just held a lot of... possibility. and there wasn't much in his life that held that type of significance. after running a finger down the page, he looked back up and smiled, offering his hand.
"chloe? it's nice to meet you. i'm nik." he flashed her a grin before placing two of the books back on the shelf where she had gotten them from. he tucked the third under his arm, planning on buying it at least until the three day return period was over- if it could keep his interest over the course of seventy-two hours, it was worth the outrageous price that he would undoubtedly be charged. looking back up at chloe, he asked, with genuine curiosity, if a hidden motive, and trying not to sound creepy, "so, chloe, are you new? i've been in canterbury a long time and i don't recall seeing you around before this semester."
