So, funny story, I was chilling in the union room today at my college before my last class of the day after five hours of classes up to that point. I was minding my own business drawing a picture of Hannah while watching a playthrough of Bioshock 1, to which the person playing was beating people with a wrench, when I suddenly see someone walk over to my chair. Oddly enough, it was a little boy no older than four, on his own, saying something to me. I was able to swivel the table my laptop was on away from him without drawing much attention to what I had been listening to. When I listened to what he said, it sounded a little off and I asked him to repeat it. Low and behold, I had heard correctly. The only thing he told me at first was, "I snuck away from my mom," with a grin almost as if he'd just won a gold metal for an Olympic event. I honestly had no idea what to say back to that, but probably ended up saying something along the lines of, "Oh really? How'd you manage to do that?" He just grinned up at me with that adorable little baby face all kids seem to have when they want to look like angels without a response. I was mentally debating how to figure out who his mother was or what to do if she couldn't be found, since I had to leave for class soon, when she came around the corner of the printer and called his name. When he didn't respond, still just giving me a smile, she told him to stop flirting with me and leave me alone. He then danced off to his mom, not breaking eye contact with me until he was beside her. When they finally left, I laughed pretty hard. I couldn't believe this kid just wanted to randomly talk to me and even started off by telling me how he snuck away from his mother.
It was absolutely adorable.
My story telling skills, or lack there of, probably aren't making it sound as cute as it was, but that kid made my day.
In other news, Angels Ascended auditions have officially begun! This is my first OCT judging (or participating in), but I'm already super excited to see what everyone comes up with and where they go with their different characters. I'll be posting things of Hannah and Neal on this account as well, but if anyone wants to see the other account I've made for them for some reason, here it is: archangelhanael.deviantart.com…
In other, other news, now that I don't have an art class I'll probably get more art work done... in theory. So hope for more submissions, though I tend to say that an awful lot. I promise there are a ton of things I want to submit, but I never want to go through the submission process by the time I get around to remembering all the things in my sketchbook waiting to be uploaded. I also have to say, gray paper is magic. Just simply magic.
