Usually it's one thing about a person that singles them out from the crowd. Maybe it's their hair or a particular piece of clothing they are wearing.
But not this boy.
Everything about him screamed unique in a confusingly subtle way. It was almost as if he had just woken up this morning and thrown on the first things he got his hands on. But the funny thing was...it worked.
The whole outfit just tied together, giving the boy a whole 'I don't care' vibe.
I looked around, taking in everyones thoughts on the boy. Nearly every eye was on him, but he didn't seem to notice.
A small bubble of respect formed in me for this guy. He was someone who was so happy and easy going that he didn't care what people thought of him. He just let go and lived his life without a care in the world.
No one was making any attempt to talk to him. It's like his over-confident personality was steering them away.
I don't think anyone noticed but me, but there was a slight waver in his footsteps. Part of him was beginning to feel conscious of the eyes following his every move.
Personally I think he shouldn't have been even a smidge worried.
I got up and made my way confidently over to him, my long grey cardigan and poofy scarf flapping gently in the wind.
He looked partly startled when I stopped in front of him.
Before he could speak I jumped in, my bubbly, even voice rising above the gentle chattering of other people.
"Top three designers?"
His reply was almost instantanious.
"Haider Ackermann, Dries Van Noten and Yohji Jamamoto."
I nodded and a smile slowly spread on my face. It was like he had picked my favourite designers right out of my own head.
"Good choice." My smile brightened and he returned it with one of his own.
"I'm Amy. What have you got next?" I asked. I was curious to see if our interests continued in subjects.
"Fashion History and Culture." He smiled. "Oh and I'm Steve."
I looked at his timetable as he held it out to me.
"We have Fashion Illustration, Fashion Design and Tailoring together." I smiled and he returned it warmly.
"Good at least i'll know someone."
I nodded. "I'll meet you here at half 12 so we can walk to Design together." I started to walk away but turned at the last minute. "And I love your outfit by the way. It's really unique."
As I walked I looked round to see many pairs of eyes looking at me. But the moment I met them, the eyes turned away.
I smiled to myself.
I had a good feeling about Steve.
