" Wheezed Dej to the multiple queries to his condition. He coughed and breathed in deep to get back the wind that was knocked out of him. It wasn't long before multiple faces appeared over the tops of the Desks surrounding the fallen boy and Raiko, and a pair of tinkling riding spurs appeared by Dej's head. "Sup dude.
" said the boy wearing the unique footware. Dej looked confused for a moment and rubbed his head, he must've hit it harder than he thought. Dej was quickly hoisted to his feet by Seiji and Alphonse. "Thank yo-ow." Started Dej, but winced as Alphonse drew back. a loose wire had cut a shallow scratch just above Dej's leather wrist strap
. The cut wasn't deep, but a red line of blood rose the the surface. Dej reflexively held the cut to his mouth for a moment before nodding sheepishly at Alphonse who moved away to repair his glove.
Dej looked around embarrassed, dropping his arm to his side. "Thanks for the hand,
" He said warmly to Seiji grinning, before turning and nodding a bow to everyone who was still looking at him, "My name is Dej, sorry for the noise.
" His smile faltered as he saw some people roll their eyes or ignore him and he let out a nervous laugh. One of the girls approached him, and Dej turned to see Haruna introduce herself, Dej nodded welcomingly, but she turned away apologizing for his fall, and Dej's smile fell as she began to cry and bowed deeply.
" He said, stooping down to help her stand again, "No worries! I've had troubles with gravity for far longer than today.
" Nodded Dej sagely, putting his hand on her shoulder,
" He continued, "No harm done, so no need for tears.
" he said, wiping one away with a free hand."Nice to meet you Haruna-chan.
" He said with another bow.
