She turned, not even glaring at him, and thrust her hands to her ankle, pawing at the swollen skin. Tears slowly fled down her cheeks and she looked up to get a glimpse at her attacker.
((sorry I was out yesterday >.<))
Greg's eyes followed the girl's hands and widened when he saw her swollen ankle. "I am so sorry," he said apologetically, meeting her gaze. "Ah, maybe I should take you to the hospital," he added, watching as the crowd around them was starting to get bigger. "Can you use your other leg?"
Her breath hitched and she stared back in terror; unsure if this man what this man was aking right after he seemingly attacked her. She whispered,"Are you nuts?"
The concern on Greg's face left and was replaced with confusion. "Nuts?" he repeated. "I'm asking you if you can move your other leg so I can take you to the hospital... where ever that is..." The last part he mumbled more to himself.
She looked at he people. "Scram!" cThe people stepped back a little, surprised by her response. They obeyed, every once and a while looking back. She turned to him. "Are you blind?" She whispered, turning over to attempt to stand.
Even Greg jolted a bit at her sudden outburst. "Uh-umm," he was trying to figure what she meant by that question, "No?" He saw that she was struggling to get to her feet so he offered his hand again, noticing that the device was neither it that hand or the other. Greg cursed under his breath as he scanned the area. Cr.ap, that's my way back home. Well it's not like I'd be missed anyways.
She pushed his hand away, a defiant selfishness running through her. "No...." she limped into a stand, wincng back in pain. She turned to him, notcing a dreaded look passing his face as he glanced about. "What?"
Greg blinked in surprise when he felt his hand get pushed away. Wow, are all girls from 2013 this stubborn? he thought to himself, continuing his search and almost forgetting to answer the girl. "Oh. Uhh, you wouldn't have happened to spot a small device that looks similar to a silver pen with a red button on top while I fell on you, have you?" He looked to her with a nervous smile and gave an even more nervous chuckle before clearing his throat and continued to look. Where can it be?!
She stared at him clutching her bag closer. "You are nuts." And she limped off.
Greg was on his knees searching the ground when he heard the girl say that. He mumbled to himself, "Nuts huh? I guess I am nuts since I agreed to drop from a 500 foot building not knowing that I'll survive the fall into another time zone just to save all of you. And now here I am on the floor searching for the time machine and talking to himself like a maniac." He paused to glare at a person gaping at him. "Quite looking at me like that!" he snapped, making the person walk away quickly. Greg quickly got up a bit angered and spotted the girl he injured and walked up to her. "Hey!" he called, "I'm really sorry about your ankle. You should really go to the hospital though."
She flinched add he caught up to her. "I realize... Thank you and good day."She looked away, trying to loose him.
Greg's eyes narrowed at her and he stepped in front of her path to stop her from walking, or rather limp, any further. "Why do you keep on trying to avoid me?" he asked.
She forced a grin. "Mt mommy always told me to never talk to strangers. Besides, I don't know, you just broke my ankle!"
Greg sighed, "That's because I fell from- er... I said I was sorry okay! Besides, in the future, you won't consider me a stranger."
((Oh fudge.. I made him sound like a stalker o_o'))
((He is supposed to be weird))
Her eyes skirted him with a bewildered look on her face. She shook her head. "What are you talkign about?"
Greg closed his eyes and sighed. "It's complicated," he stated, "Ummm..." He was thinking whether or not he should tell her. If I do she'll think I'm crazier than I already am. Oh who am I kidding. It's not like her opinion should influence me. He took a deep breath and quickly shifted his eyes away from the girl's gaze before mumbling "I'm from the future."
She halted for a moment before laughing. "You're from the future?" She said between giggles.
Greg's cheeks brightened with a slight blush and he kept his eyes away from her face. Allowing another sigh escape he replied "Yes," with a bit of a disappointment from her reaction. He was hoping she would have done anything but laugh. Anything, even slap him.
"Okay, ya, the future."She finished giggling and looked at him smiling. "I got to get to the hospital, future boy."
