[/justify][/blockquote][/blockquote]tagged: levi/nicole :3alex wasn’t one to really favor certain friends over others, but it was even clear to her that most of the time she found herself wanting to hang out with levi more than anyone. he was just a ton of fun, or so she thought. and he was always nice, unlike a lot of the guys she knew. it wasn’t that they were rude or anything, but they got bored, or annoyed; to put it simply, they were impatient when it came to spending too much time with girls. he could’ve just been being nice to alex, but it definitely seemed like he was a lot more pleasant to be around than most. overall, they got along sufficiently well, and in the end that was good enough for her. alexandria liked people, and even if there wasn’t much common ground, having someone to talk to, even about the most insignificant things, was a great way for her to just relax and forget about whatever stressed her out. though, usually, the pink haired girl found a different way to release stress.
cutting wasn’t exactly something she was proud of, but it also wasn’t something that anyone knew about. she didn’t want anyone to know. alex knew it was a bad thing, and was potentially very dangerous. why stop something that helped you though? her bracelets covered up the both faded and reddened marks in the flesh, even though that wasn’t a way out of explaining herself forever. and, if things worked out as they did in her mind (call them fantasies, but alex preferred to call them possible scenarios), her developing this crush on levi wouldn’t help keep her secret. it wasn’t a very big crush, but it was something. the two hadn’t been friends for too long, but the few times they’d hung out had given her a good enough impression to like him as a person. and, naturally, his looks mattered a bit too. he was definitely attractive; the word worked for him in every sense, actually. levi was cute, and he, from what she knew, was awesome to be around. what more did you need? but if things did work out between them as they did in alex’s mind, eventually, she assumed, general questions would be asked. and no one would want to date a freak that inflicted pain upon themselves. another ruined relationship just wouldn’t be good for the teenager.
right now though, a relationship was far from possible. and all they were doing was hanging out. alex managed to get away from her father, telling him it was to meet up with someone to talk about a photography job. it was partly true; there would be photography. just not for a job. her dad wasn’t a rotten person who wanted to keep her locked away all the time, he was just worried about her, and his disability only gave him a reason to keep her at home. money was money though, and he wouldn’t keep alex from saving up money of her own. luckily she’d had a good deal saved up from prior jobs; otherwise this money from the ‘potential job’ might be important. today was just about hanging out with levi though. and taking pictures, but for no good reason. simply of whatever she wanted, whether it was nature, other people or what have you. it was actually exciting; it’d been a while since she had been able to take pictures just for fun.
the teenager didn’t waste time in heading to the park, though she made sure not to get there too much before they were supposed to meet up. she’d look odd just sitting around waiting for a while. people would probably start to get nervous and think she was some creep or something. not that alex particularly looked like a creepy person or something. if anything, someone might think she was trying a tad bit too hard to stick out. that wasn’t true, but people might think that. she just liked what she liked, and did what she wanted without going too over the top. people would think what they wanted though, and alex had gotten over that a while ago. at first it did matter to her what everyone thought. after all, a good impression was important. but throughout high school, it became too apparent that you couldn’t please everyone. and from then on, it was about making sure the people she cared about were happy with her. most of all though, it was about being happy with herself. she could say she was mostly there.
heading over to one of the first benches, alex sat, waiting for levi. it wouldn’t be too long until he arrived, and sitting there wouldn’t be a bother. there was a ton going on, giving her something to watch. there was also a playground nearby. alexandria loved children, and watching them play and just be adorable would make her happy. kids were just too cute. the pink haired girl would refrain from taking pictures of them though, to avoid their parents thinking she was a creep. instead, she grabbed her camera out of her bag and focused on some nearby flowers, snapping a satisfactory shot of them. nature shots were great, but her favorite was getting pictures of people, whether they were posing or it was a surprise. it was the best when the picture didn’t seem forced; when the subject was really laughing at something funny or really smiling because something made them happy. you couldn’t fake real emotion. alex planned on getting a few pictures of levi throughout their time together. she knew they’d come out wonderful, and if she had her camera, why not?

notes: finally up! it's a bit suckish in the beginning, and rambly throughout, but it's decent x3
