Hayley did not see the point in having replacement classes. Okay, well, she did, actually. They were there to make sure that teachers could finish up their syllabi even with unexpected snow days and the like. However, that only made sense if the classes were being replaced before final exams.

Far be it for Hayley to only study for exams, but it still felt pretty pointless for students to be stuck in classes when they could probably go home already for summer. Weirdly enough, teachers and their classes were much more interesting when the thought of exams weren't looming over her. It was just Hayley's mood today that was making her grouchy, really.

The hallways were packed with people right now, seeing as it was between periods. Hayley was just making her way from one (needless) class to another. She had woken up with a slight headache this morning because she didn't quite sleep well last night. The cacophonous chatter wasn't helping things at all.

Hayley did her best to keep her head low while going to her next class. She didn't quite have to squeeze her way through the halls, but only really because she hated brushing against anyone. Hayley wasn't claustrophobic, exactly, but being in such a space with this many people unsettled her.

Maybe keeping her eyes on her feet was a bad idea, because Hayley suddenly felt someone bump into her shoulder, hard. Thankfully, she didn't end up on the floor. It would be a horrible experience for her, both because she'd be disturbing foot traffic and she'd probably have been stepped on. However, the couple of books she had in her arms did end up falling to the ground and were kicked away.

Hayley swallowed her desire of glaring at the person who knocked into her and giving them a piece of her mind. Willing the anger away, she settled for cursing under her breath about her shitty luck. Getting to those books was not going to be easy.

Everyone around him was too busy comparing summer plans to even pay attention to where they were going; admittedly, maybe he shouldn't have been on his phone. That being said, it'd been nearly a week since the last call from the office, and since then no-one had been in touch with him; not friends, not one of the producers, not his choreographers or even any of the camera crew he normally worked with. Had the been told not to contact him? Was he really doing that much damage to his reputation? If it wasn't for this damn radio silence (and the strict ban on reading comments) he'd be able to find out.

There was a clatter and skid; it was bumping into the back of one of the group that broke him away from his phone. There was a girl in front of the person he'd bumped into, glancing around as if she'd lost something. Going on the sudden silence of the once noisy group and disappearing books among the feet of the masses, it didn't take a genius to figure out what had happened.

He tutted, sliding his phone away - the radio silence could wait - before smacking the friend over the back of his head. "What do you think you're doing you idiot. Look where you're going. Go get her books you two." By now his friends had learnt rule number twelve; Kittichat Jaipetch only broke out Cantonese when he was talking to his grandmother, or when he was royally pissed. It was childish, but he liked how he actually managed to sound angry, the rest of the time he was nothing more than a bleating lamb apparently. They scattered, despite knowing how truly harmless Mic was.

Turning his attention back to the poor girl, he sighed. "I'm sorry, they're not looking where they're going. Too interested in discussing Summer plans I guess. Are you okay?"

After her books ended up on the floor, likely being trampled on right this moment, Hayley paused in the middle of the hallway. She didn't care if she was in anyone's way. There were more pressing issues on her mind. For example, whether it was a better idea to wait for the crowd to disperse before trying to locate her books. Or maybe they'd just be gone by then, eaten by the strange ether of all high school hallways.

Hayley heard some angry-sounding words being hurled at the person who bumped into her. She couldn't understand what was being said, but the boys seemed clearly chastised and scampered off.

The one boy who stayed and apologized to her wasn't someone she'd interacted with before. He was somewhat familiar, as most students of KPYA were to her. But as she didn't watch K-TV or really follow up with much of the gossip in school, she was left without much headway as to who this guy really was.

"I'm sure they were much too excited about summer to look where they were going." Hayley didn't know what her face looked like right now, but she hoped it showed her annoyance. "Too much coordination needed for that than they could handle."

"I don't blame them; they get to split their summer between Dubai, Chaing Mai and Lamma Island" He responded, eyes following them as they bumbled their way through the crowds, eyes more on the floor than where they were going. One of these days, they were going to seriously hurt themselves, and he would have no sympathy. He'd learnt that lesson the hard way.

He was jealous, he'd admit it. He wanted to go home, to go see all his friends and family, not just the ones he could squeeze into a few days. He wanted to check on every animal and every tribe, not just get updates from site and project managers. Still, maybe if he'd studied harder to catch up, he'd have that opportunity too.

He hummed at her next comment, as if considering it. A lack of co-ordination in his dancers? No, not likely. "I'd hope they have some co-ordination." He mumbled, fumbling with his phone for a second; a game notification, not what he had been hoping for. With a sharp exhale, he turned his attention back to the girl, waiting on the return of his pet monkeys. "I've been training them out of it for the last two years." There were times when he regretted going to the same school as those clowns, but at the same time he wouldn't have it any other way. They were good, but distractible much like children. He forgot at times that he was still technically a child himself; he didn't feel it, and he hadn't for a long time.

Dubai. Chiang Mai. Lamma Island. Although Hayley herself would be fortunate enough to visit the former, it definitely wasn't an opportunity afforded to her by her own merit or circumstance. It was only thanks to Kingston's infinutely deep pockets that she'd even have this chance to step on something other than US soil. Well, Kingston and its wealthy benefactors. Probably including the parents of the kid she's talking to. Maybe the ones who bumped into her too. Hayley decided not to dwell on that thought.

"Good for them," Hayley said in response to all statements. She didn't quite care for this boy or whatever authority he held over the others. As far as she was concerned, the large majority of students here were good only at being rich. Sure, there were of course those who were talented at something. Like Sophie with her music and Bailey with her dancing. But those kids had every advantage in the world, while she and her sisters had to fight for everything they had. Their places at KPYA were only possible because of their parents. Otherwise, the tuition just would have been astronomical. As it was, Hayley still required an academic scholarship to help supplement the fees.

At this point, the crowd in the hallway began to thin. The earlier chatter started to fade and decrease in volume. Hayley lowered her gaze toward the floor again, hoping to spot her books. Despite her efforts, though, she could detect neither hide nor hair (figuratively, of course) of them. Getting to class late wasn't a huge concern for her, but Hayley still needed to show up, at least. She figured her unexpected companion would need to leave soon too. Either way, she focused more at the task at hand than the boy.

"It's not all fun and games for them." Kitti, of course, begged to differ. Sure, you smelt bad at the end of the day and yeah, you were still picking dirt from your nails a week later. He loved it though; seeing the pride in making first trades with villages, the spark of trust returning to gentle giants, beaming smiles when ships came home. It was worth the physical agony. "They're going to be running sanctuaries and projects for me because, shockingly, the Thai kid doesn't know as much American history as American kids. That is if I don't murder them first."

He muttered that last part as he sptted one of them sprawling over their locker, entirely fixed on a girl. He crossed the hallway and cleared his throat, hand held out expectantly. He was almost certain he was more a mother than a friend half the time. "Rule number one; stay alert. Authority figures like to tear down hill tribe camps when they can." He reeled off, aaas he took the offending item from them and offered it back over. The others sheepish grin was the best apology he was going to get and Kitti knew it.

"Rule twelve; stay on task. Elephants like to play games and are much bigger than you" He tapped a second person on the head as they slid up, flustered and dropping lose scraps of ...who knows what almost fell out. "I feel like we're still missing something,or was that everything?"

The edges of Hayley's mouth turned down into a frown as she heard the boy's words. What about travelling wasn't fun? Hayley hadn't done very much travelling in her life. Or, well, it was more like she had never travelled before ever in her life. She could only guess that packing and goes through customs would be a hassle for them. Her expression became tinged with confusion as the boy continued. It was an explanation, to be sure, but definitely not one that Hayley inderstood in anyway.

Not that it actually really mattered to Hayley.

What happened next did, though. And it came as a huge surprise. If you asked her, not that anybody did, most of the students here were stuck-up rich kids, with only a few exceptions. Hayley thought she'd been here long enough to identify them easily from a quick glance. This one thing might just prove her wrong though.

The boy went off and approached a couple of his friends. Hayley couldn't be sure, but she thought they were the ones who had almost knocked her and made her spill her books to the floor. Soon after, he came back over with her stuff. All of it. Well, sort of. Some notes were fluttering to the ground right now.

Hayley bent to quickly pick them up. She grabbed her books and inserted the papers randomly into one of them.

"Thanks." Hayley hoped her voice didn't sound as caught off guard as she felt. "Most people would have just left me to deal with that on my own."

Hayley started to walk off towards her next class. Thanks to the now-empty hallway, she felt confident enough to turn and walk backwards for a bit. "Good luck with your sanctuaries and whatever other projects you have. And thanks again."
