Kat shuffled out of the mess hall train-car awkwardly, moving to close the door behind her she moved down the ramp sideways as she glanced around; satisfied that no one was watching her as she reached the bottom. She had opted to not wear shoes, the dusty ground feeling a bit freeing as she walked towards the main area, it wasn't like she had the best shoes anyway, but she didn't feel like going with one shoe, even if it only was for the rest of the night. She was definitely excited to get this awkward thing off of her foot even if it had only been a few days, the medics had wanted to make sure she didn't tear the ligaments even more so.
A small gaggle of the other tenderfoots her age were heading in the general direction she was as she folded her arms over her middle before one of them called to her. "Bonfire at the usual spot, come on Kat! You usually don't go! Sunset!" she glanced to them and gave only a shadow of a smile, as if being included weren't unusual for her - she usually refused to go to such things. She shrugged in their direction as they waved to her and continued, though as they moved they revealed her savior from earlier this week walking towards her. Whether he was distracted by something ont he ground or he was trying to avoid others she didn't know, but she stayed where she was, as he happened to walking right for her.
As he got closer to her she cleared her throat so he looked up to her, a slightly surprised look on his face as she lifted her hand in a half-attempted "hi" as the corners of her mouth kind of played between a smile an a normal relaxed face; well ... as relaxed as she could manage. She didn't know why she felt so nervous around him, though she let her eyes dance away briefly before forcing herself to not be so rude. She was a jumble of nerves and it bugged her that she couldn't keep her normal demeanor as she lifted a hand to push her mess of blonde waves behind her ear.
Oh come on Kat! It wasn't like he knew that you left that present for him at his train-car, knocking on the door to fling yourself off the ramp and run around the side to practically hold your breath and wait for him to find it. Afterwards she felt like a fool and practically had a heart attack and thought to herself that maybe she could go and grab it before he got to the door. She had went to take a step out from around the corner before she flew back as the door slid open, covering her mouth with her hand as she leaned against the side of the rail-car, slowing her breathing as she peeked around the corner, finding him kneeling over the small cloth wrapped sack of food she had managed to collect after not eating half of her portions for the past two days. As he looked one way she ducked back again, sneaking away as quickly as she could without making noise before he decided to investigate.
No. No, he didn't know it was her.
"So um, I never got to thank you for .. ya know .. coming to get me the other day. I mean I know you were told to but ..," she shrugged, "a lot of people would've blown off a rescue thing. At least most of them our age," she said as she flicked her eyes here and there, finally settling on his face right at the end. "And .. I also forgot that I didn't even catch your name?"
