㊐ - It wasn’t an actual ticking, yet she could almost feel it in her bones. That constant track of time that was kept within the back of her mind. It moved constantly, like a watch that she never wore. Accurate enough that she wouldn’t need one.
At least, until recently.
It was in moments like these that things went a little… awry. The pulse in her veins faster than normal, the constant passing of time no long in sync with the rest of her body as it swept into a cascading torrent of reactions that she couldn’t control.
She blamed it on nerves, for the most part. The rolling feeling of tension that coiled tight within her chest. Not without reason, she thinks. Faunus, she had never gotten along well with them.
Yet here she was, in Beacon. A teammate to one and tutoring yet another one. She shouldn’t be afraid. She told herself she wasn’t. Yet what else was it that caused a heat down her collars and the tremors in her grip as she stood there in the empty room that she had reserved for this very purpose.
The time tick. Her gazed fixed upon the door. They were late.
