[Students had been getting sick lately, making the campus feel a lot emptier than normal. This was a third rate school, with a third rate staff, and it wasn't much of a stretch to believe some bug was just getting passed around.

Nobody would suspect some formless black creature siphoning life from the school. Except for local exorcists at least, but really, who took that kind of stuff seriously?

Ok, maybe he was a little too irreverent...

When Kusakabe got off school that day, he had his muffler puled up clear to his nose to stave off the chilly weather, looking worse for wear in that little bit of space between the muffler and the bottom of his hat. He sniffled miserably, figuring it for a cold, or maybe even the flu. His headphones were in, playing quietly as any louder sounds made the back of his brain feel like it was rubbing up against a wall of lint. He almost missed Natsume sitting there on his bike with some of the other students around watching curiously. Who was this kid just staring up at the building?]

Hah... it's you! [His voice sounded congested, but he'd brightened up at least. His first instinct was to go over and occupy Natsume's space, but he thought better of it and kept his distance so he wouldn't get the other boy sick too.]

[Kusakabe can't feel the thing for what it is, but he can't help feeling the effects of the weakness it causes. He's slouching more than normal even as he smiles back at Natsume enough for his eyes to crinkle a little with it. It's always good to see him, even if he always looks a little bit nervous.

He looks more than a little nervous right now though, and Kusakabe at least reaches a hand out to try and take one of Natsume's, only for it to fall away when the other backed up far enough. What, does he really look that bad?

The shadow looming nearby in the entryway to the school's main hall has more to do with it than anything, people passing back and forth through it and looking a little bit sickly with it every time.]

Kinda stopped up. Won't be able to practice for a while. I think I slept with the window open a few days ago and ended up with a cold, no big.

[He'd been set to try and get Natsume's attention until the other focused back on him, and his eyes close with the touch against his forehead. He hums quietly and accepts it. It actually feels pretty good on his overly warm skin.]

I keep hoping it'll burn itself out. It sucks. [He coughs a little as he turns in place to try and get a look at whatever Natsume had been staring at like he wanted to set it alight with his gaze alone. Just the entrance of the school still, with a couple of people talking. Right within the shadow's...shadow. He glances down at a movement from beside his feet, jumping a little at the sudden appearance of a maneki statue. That hadn't been there a moment ago.

And now it's looking at him. Maybe he's hallucinating in his feverishness.]

[Oh. Ok, that was actually a cat. What a weird cat. Kusakabe's face deadpans as he reaches out to pet this cat, earning him a sharp bite in the process. Both Kusakabe and Sensei look thoroughly offended by the gestures.]

Rude-ass. [But he softens a little looking back at Natsume.] It's almost the weekend. I figured I would try and stick in it a little longer and then if I wasn't better by the time Monday comes again, I'd spend take the day off.

[He sighs and steps forward, bowing his head to bump gently against the top of Natsume's. He wants to kiss him, but his nose is running again.]

If I go home, d'you wanna come with me?

gotta have more of natsume's face yes

[Being spotted is the last thing on his mind. Who cares if someone does? Basically everyone in this school knows he's pretty popular, and nobody would be surprised that he was friends with people from other schools. Even peculiar boys like Natsume.

The cat is still glaring at him and Kusakabe is inclined to glare back. He can kind of hear it grumbling, and part of him is pretty sure that there were words in all that growling. He kind of wants to pick a fight, but it's a damn cat.

And Natsume looks perturbed again. He straightens up and looks back at where the other had been looking before.]

I can show you around if you need to go somewhere in there. D'you need to find someone in particular?

[Until the cat is put aside, Kusakabe had been preoccupied with teasing it, getting his fingers swiped at in the process. He is easily distracted by Natsume's nerves though. He curls a hand protectively around one of Natsume's, drawing him a little closer and once more glancing back toward the thing he just couldn't see.

He has an idea, and ends up drawing Natsume away, though they aren't going very far. There's a vending machine nearby, and he can get the two of them a pair of hot drinks. If they're going to be here a while, it would make sense not to just sit around in the cold with nothing to show for it.]

Let me know if I can help, ok? I don't know what's going on but I'm kind of worried...

There is no escape from the smooch

[That cat could humph all it liked, it wouldn't stop Kusakabe trying to make things better. He only lets go of Natsume's hand to retrieve the drinks, holding them out for Natsume to choose one then popping open the other one for himself.]

Try me.

[Kusakabe's head tilts as Natsume starts to withdraw, frowning softly and reaching a hand out to rest atop the other's head.]

Ok, so what do we do about something only you can see?

[Kusakabe's hand falls away, tucking into his pocket as his hip cocks, slouch kicking in as he shrugs.]

Well, for one thing there's a lot about the world I don't know yet, so why can't that be one of them? Also I'm pretty sure your cat called me an asshole. Which...ok yeah it's weird, but stranger stuff exists right?

[If he wasn't sick he might have tried to kiss Natsume, to reassure him that he wasn't just gonna run away because there were things he couldn't see lurking around. He simply squeezes the hand wrapped around his instead, sipping on his drink and glancing back around to the cat making itself at home on his bike.]

Oi! You're in charge of keeping him safe, you got me? OR I'll drop you in the river with a rock tied to your foot.

[He would be butting heads with this cat, he could feel it. But it doesn't matter. What does is being able to help Natsume do what he feels he needs to in the here and now.

Wrapping his arm around Natsume's shoulders from behind, Kusakabe looks up at the school where he'd seen the other looking before, His chin comes to rest on Natsume's head as he hums thoughtfully.]

So how do you usually deal with stuff like this?

[Kusakabe nods at that. It seems logical enough; some Spirits don't actually want much in the world, just to be acknowledged, or sometimes left alone, or to protect something or other. That's what the books said, at least.

At the suggestion that Natsume might need to exorcise it though, he stiffens, growing rather alarmed. But then again, his first mental image involves gratuitous pea soup and yelling inaccurate bible passages.]

Exorcise it? You can do that?
