Shinji decides he wants to try a cycling class at the local gym; he drags Kaworu along too, ‘cause God forbid we try anything new without Kaworu. There’s only two bikes left when they get there, one behind the other. They hop on, and the instructor starts the warm-up, which is pretty much sitting and pedaling. The music picks up, they follow instructions… and Shinji is suddenly grateful he chose the seat behind Kaworu.
“Ha-Whoa, that’s pretty intense! We should, hah-do that again some time!” Kaworu huffs afterwards.
“Yes… Yes, we should.”
Next class, there’s more open seats, but Shinji HAS to go behind him, because he likes ‘being further away from the teacher.’ > u >
