SHE ACTS LIKE SUMMER
AND WALKS LIKE RAIN, REMINDS ME THAT THERE'S TIME TO CHANGE.
May hadn't been in town long, though she heard if one was going to hangout around town, the downtown area was where you should go. She didn't know exactly where she was heading, but she decided if she came across any cute boutiques she could always check 'em out. Also, she was looking for the newest Fantasy Football magazine to give her some pointers on which picks she should take up this time around. Last year she hadn't exactly made the best choices, especially with Tom Brady's injury and all. Though, she did have some good quality picks and hopefully she'd have the best one's this year. Nonetheless, she'd still have to track down a place that sold the magazine. She'd been to many convenient stores and none had it. She was beginning to imagine that Lima wasn't that big of a football city.

May shivered as a cold wind blew. It really was cold here in Ohio. Snow on the ground, snow falling from the sky, snow covering parked cars. It was like the North Pole it seemed. She walked by a familiar store and glanced inside peering at the display they had for the video games they had to offer that were just released. "Neat! They have the new Madden!" She smiled brightly, wanting to get the video game, but it was only fun if you had people to play it with online. And Brad had gone away for the next month so she couldn't exactly connect with him despite living in another state. She sighed, missing her best friend. He had gone to Florida for the holidays with his girlfriend. She looked away from the window and leaned against it. Why couldn't things just be a lot simpler for her? No boyfriend. No friends. No life. Things just didn't seem fair. Her parents couldn't even wait til the end of the semester. They had to transfer at the beginning of December? Bullshit.

May glanced across the street, noticing a boy exiting a small store by himself. Actually, she wasn't fairly sure he was a boy. He was extremely tall. Though, she wasn't interested in his height, she examined his hands, as he was holding the new Fantasy Football magazine with Drew Brees on the cover. She grinned brightly as she scurried across the street, completely ignoring the red light for her side. She ran across, jay-walking before she could get in the way of any cars coming at her. She slowed down to just a quick paced walk and called out from behind him. "Hey! Wait up!" She called out. The boy seemed to have heard as he stopped in his tracks and turned around to look at her. "Can I ask you a quick question?" She called out as she was just about two meters away from him by now. The smile still on her face, as just now she noticed that he was rather cute. Nevertheless, that was not her interest. She hoped she wasn't interrupting him with anything. People this time of year were extremely busy.

    To be honest, Finn had never really been into fantasy football. He'd much rather be playing or watching it just for fun. But his stepdad? Well, the moment they sat down to watch the season, all he heard about was fantasy football. "Great, he's on my fantasy football team, so I'm going to be making money this week!" or "Seriously? Great, there's goes my fantasy football team for the week..." Finn really didn't understand what the big deal was. He'd much rather be just watching the game. If you had to bet, why not bet on the game that's being played instead of some fake team? But, being the good stepson, he bought a magazine that promised to help him out and actually understand why people loved fantasy football. After all, his stepfather hadn't had anyone to talk to about football for the past few years. He deserved someone like that. If talking about fantasy football happened to include fantasy football... well, now Finn would be completely and totally prepared. His stepfather deserved nothing less with the happiness he always saw on his mother's face. He could totally get into fantasy football for that. Maybe he didn't have to, but he wanted to. Their little family was worth it.

    This was also part of Finn's new "nice guy" routine. He was getting back into the swing of things. He was going to be a good son, a good brother, a good quarterback, a good singer, everything. His hope was that his problems would became minor and disappear in comparison. Now, maybe this wasn't too likely, but he needed a distraction. A good distraction. Which this was. He was reinventing his personality that had changed so much over the past year. Everything was going back to the way things should be. Kind of. For the most part. Finn glanced down at the magazine and flipped through a few pages. Pictures of some of his favorite football players flashed back. A whole article was dedicated to the merits of having Peyton Manning or Brett Favre on your fantasy team and which was better. To be honest, Finn couldn't believe a magazine was made for these things. There would be Facebook and Twitter magazines next. But Finn figured that once he became a part of it, he'd like it and understand how much fun it was. Plus, he had no problem with earning some extra cash on the side (if he convinced the internet he was eighteen, that is). It would be fun, Finn convinced himself as he walked out of the store, pulling his coat around him on the cold day.

    As he walked out of the store, Finn heard a flurry of steps behind him. Was someone approaching him? It seemed unlikely that they'd be running to get into the sports store he'd just left. The Buckeye Store had been there since before he was born and he was pretty sure that it would be there forever. "Hey! Wait up!" He turned around, surprised to hear a female voice. At first, he was worried that Rachel was stalking him or something creepy like that. He felt bad about this when he turned around and saw a girl who looked to be about his age. She must have been new because he had never seen her before. "Can I ask you a quick question?" Finn loved helping others, especially this new and improved Finn. And her tone, it was just so endearing. Without missing a beat, Finn replied, "Absolutely. But you'll have to answer my question first: What's your name? I haven't met you before. Oh, and I'm Finn." Offering his hand to shake, he returned her smile with an easy-going, well-meaning smile of his own. He was genuinely interested. This girl seemed to be a nice person and he couldn't wait to get to know her better.

May reached the person whom she intended to question, only to get a question thrown at her first. She didn't expect to be asked her name, not in the least. However, as May stood in front of the boy now, she realized she had seen him pass by in the halls of McKinley once or twice before the holidays began. She didn't know his name or anything, but she recalled him wearing the McKinley football jersey. She also had seen Sam, the boy who she had recently met, walking with this guy as well. She supposed they were good friends. May ran her fingers through her hair as she responded, "Oh, umm. My name is May." She shook his hand which was a good size larger than hers. As she looked at their shaking hands, she realized how much smaller hers was in comparison. She looked up at him, "It's nice to meet you, Finn. You go to McKinley?" She questioned, though she already knew the answer.

Talk about good luck. She had run into a football player that went to her school, who was holding the very thing she was looking for. Things were looking up for her, evidently. Finn seemed a nice enough guy. She didn't know his exact status at William McKinley, but truthfully, she didn't really care that much. If this guy became her friend, that would be two friends she'd make in fairly decent time from since her arrival at Lima, Ohio. Nevertheless, it was leading up to be a good thing she had spotted him and decided to come up to him. "And about my question, I was just curious where you got that magazine from?" She pointed to the Fantasy Football magazine he held in his hands.

The wind blew harshly against her, blowing her hair back behind her shoulders. She shivered as the wind broke through her fairly thick coat. She had dealt with cold winters before, but this was just ridiculous. Ohio, why the heck are you so cold?! She cleared her throat, not knowing if she was being forward or if he had somewhere to go, "Did you want to grab like a hot chocolate or something?" She did by no means consider this asking for a date, or anything of the sort. She was alone in Ohio. She knew no one, and she felt alone. If this person would hangout with her, even for today... it would mean the world to her. She hoped he didn't see it as a creepy notion, or as something extremely forward. Then again, boys were extremely simple-minded, and May knew that from experience by hanging out with them so much. It was part of the consequences she supposed.

    Finn watched as confusion passed over this new girl's face. He resisted the urge to chuckle because he had no idea what her reaction would be. If she were like Quinn... well, let's just say it would have been a bad idea. Though he did question her confusion. It was just her name. Yeah, maybe he could Facebook stalk her when she got home or whatever, but seriously? Finn wasn't that kind of guy. He was just being friendly. That's just the kind of person he was, but she wasn't from Ohio. Maybe asking someone's name was different where she was from and she was just more defensive or something. "Oh, umm. My name is May." He watched her hands and wished he could calm nerves as she rain her hands through her hair before shaking his hand. His hands always seemed ten times bigger than girls, so he was used to it. "It's nice to meet you, Finn. You go to McKinley?" Finn wondered how long May had been at McKinley because it sounded like she knew him or least recognized him. Had he been oblivious all year? Impossible! Or at least, it seemed like it... "Yep, I've been here for basically forever." At this point, that's what Finn felt, but unlike many teenagers at McKinley, he was proud of it. He really, truly loved Ohio, Lima, everything like that. It was home.

    This could be a friendship he needed to help him pick himself backup of the ground. May seemed so pure and perfect standing there in front of him. There was just something inside him that wanted to be friends with this girl in the red trenchcoat. It sounded like that one movie he saw with Quinn about a girl a blue scarf or was it green? Something like that. He never could pay attention to those movies anyways. "And about my question, I was just curious where you got that magazine from?" She sounded a tad snippy about her question, but he had been the one who had thrown her off guard. Plus, she probably hadn't totally warmed up to him quite yet. She would, in time though. It always seemed to work that way with girls that weren't say... Rachel. "Oh, at the Buckeye Store just two stores down." He pointed to the little niche of a store that sold basically anything sports-related a person could ever want. It was by far his favorite part of the slightly dreary downtown Lima scene. "It's named after the Ohio State University's mascot. The the is super important but don't ask why because I can't explain it very well." And now he was babbling... Maybe that whole good first impression thing was something he should be worried after all. He didn't feel too impressive right now.

    As he saw her shiver, he wished he could do something. He wasn't a fan of Ohio winters and seemed like each year got colder. But he never really let them bug him. What could you do about the weather. He had allowed his eyes to wander, but he returned to look her straight in the eyes as she asked him to go for a hot chocolate with her. Well, he must be doing something right with this first impression business. Finn replied immediately, "I'd love to have coffee with you. I was about to ask you the same thing because it was either that or give you my North Face... which would have left me freezing. You can tell me all about how wonderful fantasy football is since I'm trying to bond over it with my stepdad. And I'd love to help you with finding anything else around Lima that you need or stuff like that." He was going to go hang out with a pretty girl that didn't want anything from him except for a possible friendship and finding out where the best restaurant was. He felt better than he had in a while. Not happy per se, but he was definitely getting there. It felt good.

May turned to look at where Finn had pointed from which he got his magazine. She nodded and turned back around to face him. "Awesome! Thank you so much! I've been looking for it everywhere. I needed some help figuring out who to pick." She smiled happily, now that she was familiar with the best sports store in town, thanks to her new friend. She laughed at Finn's emphasis on "the" in the Ohio State University mascot. It was enlightening to find someone with quite the jokester attitude. She was already warming up to him and she had just met him not more than five minutes ago. They just seemed to click. That's how it was with her and Brad. Maybe this was the person whom she could confide in. Maybe...

May did a mini-hop of excitement when Finn had agreed to go to coffee with her. She was happy that he was okay with it, and also that he wasn't seemingly taking it as a date. The fact that she had found a friendship amongst the streets of downtown Lima, was a nice thing. And with a boy who went to her school, even better. "Wonderful! We can discuss this Fantasy Football ordeal and you can tell me all the ins and outs in regards to McKinley High School, as I am unaware about anything." She said as she patted his arm, and walked passed him, signaling him to follow, though she wasn't entirely sure where she was going. She didn't know if there was a coffee shop this way, nor if Finn had come downtown with a car.

She caught Finn glance at the sports store and she smiled. "I'll just get the magazine on my way back. My house is that way anyway. Is there...a coffee shop this way?" She pointed in the opposite direction, deciding she should probably ask before she looked like a total idiot. She didn't want to embarrass herself in front of Finn, though, even if she had she figured it would probably just result in a few good nature laughs. Nevertheless, she just hoped they'd arrive at any coffee place hastily as it was starting to get extremely frigid, at least it was for her. Finn seemed to be fairly used to the cold.

As Finn joined her in stride. May glanced upward at him and grinned. "Thanks for keeping me company, by the way. It's not easy to kind of...adapt to a new town, let alone a new state. You know?" She stated with heartfelt emotion. She was truly grateful for his presence in her life at the moment. She needed a good friend to just hangout with, and even if Finn was only her acquaintance for the moment, it was rather relieving to have some social interaction. She bit her lip with content at her current situation.

    In less than ten minutes, Finn had decided a few things about May. First, she was probably one of the most amusing people he'd ever met. It was truly endearing and adorable. Two, she also probably had more confidence than half the student body at McKinley.... put together. And three, she was one piece of work. But in a good way. He just could never have imagined a personality quite like hers. It totally worked though, which was what made it really cool. Like here she was completely drop-dead gorgeous (Finn had to admit this, even if he didn't want a relationship at the moment. He could look.), and thanking him for helping her with football stuff. He responded with a, "No problem. Happy to help, of course." And this was about understanding the game, but about fantasy football, which was basically football nerds only (as far as he could tell). She laughed as he talked about OSU, thinking the "the" was just as ridiculous as he did. Stuff was just flowing and for once, Finn wasn't working hard to do not do something wrong. Sure, they were both still kind of nervous, but all of that was going away. Everything was just working.

    He laughed at May's small jump of excitement. She just seemed so full of life to him in this cold, bleak downtown. He smiled yet again because this event held promise of him truly enjoying himself. Slightly distracted, he caught her last few words, "...the ins and outs in regards to McKinley High School, as I am unaware about anything." Finn shook his head with a chuckle. Two and a half years in and even he was still unsure of the "ins and outs" at McKinley. Did they even exist! He didn't know. "I'll try to do the best I can, but I won't make any promises there." He watched her walk right past him in the wrong direction towards a coffee shop that was unknown even to himself... seeing as none existed that way. Still, he did admire how headstrong she was and turned on his heel to follow and tell her that this was not quite what she was looking for. Her next words on sports store made everything make much more sense though and he was no longer so confused. "Is there... a coffee shop this way?" He laughed at her boldness, that easy smile settling into his. How to tell her that what she searched for were in neither or the directions that she was thinking of exactly?

    Finn gently placed his hands on her shoulder and turned her forty-five degrees to face the other side of street. A neon red sign proclaimed, "OPEN!" under an awning that red, The Espresso Bar. Not a very original name, but they were legendary for their drinks. [color=256A97]"It's actually right there," he told her in a joking manner. It was close, thankfully. He was beginning to worry his new friend would have hypothermia before they were able to reach the quaint coffee shop. As she glanced up at him and thanked him once again, Finn just shook his head and looked down at the ground. "Really, it's nothing. I can't say I know about being in a new town and all that because I never moved. But I definitely sympathize and will help the best I can." This was the new Finn that he had been looking for. He hadn't even thought of his problems and wasn't going to start now. He was actually enjoying himself. "C'mon, let's get over there before we become ice sculptures." He linked his arm in hers in an old-fashioned gesture. Maybe that would seem weird, but he found it nice. He walked them to the nearest crosswalk to get over to the other side of the street. In just a few moments, the light of the coffee shop greeted them. Nothing seemed more wonderful to Finn than going inside and getting warm and forming a real friendship with this new girl named May.

May cocked her head to the left and looked at Finn in a puzzled way. "Still haven't figured them out yourself, have you? Well then, you can just tell me which people to steer clear of." She concluded. It was nice to know that Finn didn't seem to be involved in too much drama. She needed that at this point in her life. The less drama, the better. That's mainly why she was constantly hanging around guys. They just didn't seem to get involved. And if they did, it was dealt with quickly, and painlessly. Well, usually it was physical pain, but that went away much quicker. Truthfully, she really found Finn endearing and so completely down-to-earth it was wonderful.

She smiled as Finn found her hop of excitement funny. She was happy she wasn't boring him. She knew how hard it was to remain good-humoured when it was so cold out. As she looked back at Finn in confusion of where the coffee shop was, she felt his hand on her shoulder. She let him slowly direct her gaze across the street, where she saw a small little coffee shop. She put her hands on her hips and looked down at her feet and smiled. She quickly directed her gaze back up at Finn, "I would assume you are finding this quite the joke, aren't you?" She chuckled at her own embarrassment. She gave him a little nudge as he laughed at her misguided sense of adventure.

May watched as Finn held out his arm for her to take. She wasn't used to boys treating her like such a lady. At her old school, the guys would tell her to go long as they threw her a football to catch, or they'd ask her to come play Halo with them on the weekend. This though, was something different. Not that she didn't like it. It was really endearing. She linked her arm with Finn's and gazed up at him with a big grin on her face. The biggest she had ever worn since she came to Ohio. It was nice to have him so close to her in the cold weather. She felt the heat radiating from him up against her side and it spread through her, warming her up entirely. Nevertheless, as they reached The Espresso Bar, the warmth that came from within as Finn held the door open for her to enter first, was truly welcoming.

The ambiance of the room was wonderful. The smell of coffee circulated in the air, the people in the cafe looked cheerful as they sipped on their coffee or ate their muffins and such. May couldn't help but smile at the welcoming atmosphere of the place. She looked up at Finn as he was already looking at her goofy grin. She chewed at the inside of her mouth as she couldn't help but feel all giddy at such a mellow place.

    High school was not really Finn's forte. Sure, he was popular, but all her could figure out was that it was because of football. Really, he wasn't sure how all of it worked and tried to maintain his status. He didn't get into all the major issues that everyone seemed to have. Or at least, he tried not to. It didn't always work, but he got along fairly well. This why he just had to laugh at her comment on McKinley. "I think I can help you with that. By now, I definitely know who you should steer clear of and who will be a good friend to you. That is doable for me" Living in Lima his whole life, Finn knew a majority of its inhabitants fairly well. Thus, he knew their personalities and could hopefully get Rachel locked in with the right people. He didn't want to see her become friends with the wrong person that would just leave her when someone better came along. He hated those kinds of people and always felt awful for the people who were used. The least he could do for May was help her out in this department.

    Finn smiled as May put her hands on her hips and leveled him with a gaze. "I would assume you are finding this quite the joke, aren't you?" He lost the smile and gave her the closest thing he had to a puppy dog/"Who me?" face. According to Kurt, his puppy dog expression was more of a creepy frown than an innocent look. But he might as well try. May seemed like the person who would just laugh at him and understand or some other reaction that wouldn't turn out to be too bad. He let his face fall before responding, "Okay, so I might be enjoying this just a little too much. But harmless fun, I promise!" Her chuckle told him that there was no harm, no foul. Finn simply appreciated a girl who wasn't afraid to do the wrong thing by accident and could laugh at herself. There were times when he was bold enough to do such things, but he really did wish that he were like that all the time. He could learn a thing or two from this girl about really living.

    Finn was really glad when May took his arm. There were some girls who would have sneered at him for being such a gentleman, but not this girl. She took his arm and gave him the biggest smile ever. The part in the How the Grinch Stole Christmas and his heart grew three sizes larger? Well, maybe it didn't quite work that way, but Finn felt three times lighter with that smile. Two-thirds of his troubles seemed to lift off his shoulders. Could this be someone that he could talk to? Maybe she could help him untangle his web of problems and find the right way to deal with them. She was a girl (yep, good observation). She'd know how to deal with Rachel and move on and all that stuff. After they crossed the street and got to the cozy coffee shop, Finn continued to be a gentleman by holding the door and insisting that she enter first. It seemed like everything that Finn had resolved to do was coming out in the presence of his new friend. Whether it was May herself or just his promise to himself in action, Finn didn't know. But either way, he wanted things to stay like this.

    Finn breathed in deeply as he followed May into the shop. It smelled wonderful. He wasn't a coffee drinker, but the coffee smell of the Espresso Bar was enjoyable. Coffee mixed with cinnamon that made you feel more awake and alive simply by breathing it in. "I know it may not be Starbucks, but I think local is better and much more quaint," Finn told May as they sauntered up to the register. Finn really did like the Espresso Bar. He thought it felt like home compared to the bitter outdoors. There was a "Take a Book, Leave a Book" bookshelf and a mural dedicated to everything McKinley-related. It just seemed to express his town so well. The barista was a college girl that Finn had known for almost forever. That was what was like in a semi-small town like Lima. "Hey, Amy, how's it going?" he asked, receiving a positive reply. "I'll have my usual, please. And, May, here is visiting the Bar for the first time, so whatever she wants, it's on me." He didn't know how May would take to that, but he didn't care much. Moving was tough. She deserved to have people do things for her after such a rough time. Finn was simply being as nice and friendly as possible. Hopefully, she'd take it as that.

May cocked her head to the left and looked at Finn in a puzzled way. May chuckled at Finn's attempt at a puppy dog face. It was cute and yet not very close to a puppy dog face at all. Nevertheless, she found it adorable. "Harmless is good. It's when you start bringing in the harm that I'll have to bite back. And you don't want that! Trust me!" She replied as they ventured across the crosswalk. At first, she had thought the development of hers and Finn's relationship was similar to what her and Brad had, but it was different. It felt even more natural. It just sort of clicked in the most correct way imaginable. That is exactly what she was hoping for in this fairly small city.

As they entered the store she shook off Finn's statement about the place not being an equivalent to Starbucks. May looked up at him once more. As often as she did this, she was beginning to realize that he was quite a good size taller than her. Not that she minded. It made her feel safe and secure. "Oh no. It's perfect. It's much better than Starbucks. It's a lot simpler. Simple is good." She simply stated as they walked up to the cash register where Finn greeted the barista. The girl seemed to look from Finn to May, to which May simply looked at the menu and pulled a strand of her hair behind her ear. Finn ordered his usual, but what caught May by surprise was that he had said her order was on him as well. That was something else she wasn't exactly used to. When she went out back in Chicago with her friends, it was more so every man for himself. Nobody ever really bought her anything. Now that she thought about it, not even her previous boyfriend had done things like this.

"Are you sure, Finn? I have money on me, I can definitely pay for myself." She didn't want him to feel pressured to have to pay for her, just because she was of a different gender. It's not like she was a feminist or anything, she just wasn't used to the kind of treatment that Finn was exhibiting. It was striking to find someone who was such a gentleman. She bit her lip as a smile came on her face in appreciation for Finn's company. After smiling once more at Finn, which she was doing a lot since they met, she looked back up at the menu. She gave a little hum while deciding and finally picked something. "I'll have one of those" She said as she pointed to an individual sign describing the holiday special which was a spearmint sugarfree latte. She didn't know if she'd like it, but peppermint was another one of her favourite scents besides vanilla and coconut.

Once they had obtained their drinks, after a few looks from the barista whom May learned was named, Amy, they went to find a little spot to sit. They looked around for a good enough spot when Finn pointed to a fairly isolated spot in the corner of the cafe. She walked over behind Finn as he led the way to the table and chair. She set her drink down on the table as she took off her coat. It was nice to be out of the cold, that was for sure! And to be with someone normal and cool. Just like she was used to back in Chicago. It was turning out to be a pretty good day.

    Finn looked to May, thinking back her statement about being harmless. She had probably experienced a lot more of life than he ever had since she'd actually been places. He was strangely okay with this because he figured that he'd experience things when it was time. Not to mention, the whole Rachel thing didn't make him very keen to go experience a ton of new things all of a sudden. Still, May had no need to worry. Finn couldn't harm a fly, much less a person. Or at least, he tried not to. That's what usually got him into trouble. But Finn didn't need to think about that. He was in the Espresso Bar to enjoy a cup of chocolate cream, which was basically a chocolate milkshake with ice and not milk. To be honest, Finn wasn't a fan of coffee. He hated the feeling in the middle of the day when you nearly passed out from lack of caffeine. And being hyper? He didn't find it fun or invigorating. He just found it annoying. So he stuck to his almost-milkshake.

    Finn was happy to hear that May didn't care about it not being a Starbucks. The few times he'd been to cities, it seemed like there had been a Starbucks on every single corner. He had found it absolutely ridiculous. It made him appreciate the Espresso Bar and other places like that. They just had such a quaint feel to them compared to chain restaurants. In the Espresso Bar, he felt comfortable compared to being somewhere like Bob Evans, an Ohio chain restaurant. Bob Evans claimed to be home on the farm, but really? Finn just couldn't get comfortable with all their big generic signs about specials and how strawberries were in season so there were twenty new strawberry dishes that were being served. It wasn't the same as the Espresso bar, which was full of hometown memorabilia and made patrons feel like they belonged without being commercial. May had heat the nail on the head by saying, "Simple is good." To that, Finn could not help but reply with an easy, "I couldn't agree more." Sometimes life was as easy as that.

    Finn listened to May make a meager protest but simply shook his head. He was glad she didn't make a scene or anything. Some girls really wanted to pay for their own drinks, he'd learned. But was it that big of a deal? It was only a few dollars and it was a nice gesture. This wasn't a meal, so it didn't make it a date (Quinn made sure he was well-versed in such rules). But as a newcomer in town, it was a sign of welcome. "I'm sure. You're new in town and deserve a proper welcoming, which is (of course) a drink at the Espresso Bar." Sometimes it was as easy that. He smiled at Amy as she glanced at him, but didn't noticed as she looked to May. He didn't see any reason to be looking at the pair as if there were something between them and he had never really cared for the gossip that much. He was a big boy who could take care of himself, thank you very much. She chose her drink and Amy got too work. She steamed stuff, ground stuff, poured stuff, until magically two drinks were before them. He glanced at the steam wafting off May's cup and then at his own slightly-frozen drink. Maybe a crushed ice drink hadn't been the greatest idea, but May had been the one shivering. Finn would be fine, he knew.

    Finn pointed to his favorite part of the shop in a corner underneath the McKinley mural. It was also slightly secluded so that one could actually have a decent conversation. He almost pulled out the chair for May but decided that might be too much as she hung her coat off the back. Instead, he did the same and sat down in the chair across from her. Now was a time for conversation because what else would one do in a coffee shop on such a cold day? Finn could only hope that his words would work correctly. He wasn't always the most eloquent person with words, but May knew he was a sports guy. Hopefully she'd understand. He decided to pull out his magazine, the reason she had stopped him in the first place. "So, I must admit that I may play the sport, but I know next to nothing about Fantasy Football," he told her as he flipped open the magazine to a beginner's section. "What makes it so great? You get to make your own team with great players... and then what? My stepdad's kind of obsessed, so I'd like to be able to act like I know what I'm talking about..." He looked up at her with an honest plea for help. He didn't even know if he was asking the right thing, but he figured that if anything, May could set him straight.

SHE ACTS LIKE SUMMER
AND WALKS LIKE RAIN, REMINDS ME THAT THERE'S TIME TO CHANGE.
Finn assured May that it was OK for him to pay for her drink. She was new in town after all and it was a warm welcome, so to speak. She didn't argue it further. She was simple in that way. She wasn't thick-headed or difficult to get along with. She simply accepted things that were easy to accept. "Well, thank you. That's very nice of you, Finn." She smiled as Amy made their drinks, though May was a little baffled when the drinks came back and Finn had ordered a cold drink. "Not cold enough already for ya?' She asked as they turned away from the register and headed to the table Finn had picked out. She turned around to face Amy, "Thanks Amy!" She smiled her toothy smile and spun back around.

They sat down at the table in the corner, each of them placing their coats at the back of their chairs. They sat down facing each other and Finn had pulled out his Fantasy Football magazine. Finn explained that though he was involved in the sport, he didn't quite grasp the concept of fantasy football's appeal. May nodded in understanding. "It's hard to get it when you actually physically play the sport. But generally, it's like another way to compete. It gets you much more interested in the games. For example, let's say you're watching a Colts game. Normally, if Joseph Addai gets over 200 yards in running, you wouldn't really care that much. But Fantasy Football brings out your competitive edge." May paused and took a sip of her Spearmint Sugarfree Latte. She then continued. "You'd be much more excited about the performance if he was on your 'team'." She said with air quotes when saying the word 'team'. "I didn't fancy it myself when I first heard about it, but once I tried it. BOOM! Hooked." She was excited to be able to talk to someone about sports again. It gave her a great sense of relief to believe that she was going to be able to talk to Finn at school as well. That was...if he even cared to be her friend after today. She hoped she made a decent enough impression by the end of the day.

Finn seemed like a nice enough guy to be welcoming to a stranger. But why was he alone downtown? Where were his friends? Why wasn't he out with his football mates hanging out? "So tell me about yourself, Finn. What do you do for fun around here? What do you, personally like to do?" She was intrigued. A high school quarterback must lead an interesting life. Then again, Lima didn't seem that interesting of a town. Nonetheless, Finn was certainly making it an interesting day for May. She was happy that she had run into him regardless. She didn't know what it was about Finn, but a part of her found she cared about him. His eyes showed genuineness, but she could also see something else. He wasn't all...there. As if something was on his mind. Nonetheless, she didn't want to invade his personal bubble. She just wanted to enjoy herself with this encounter. It wasn't often you bumped into a handsome guy and he bought you a latte, while you talked about sports. It was pretty fantastic.

    The drinks were bought. Finn shook off her thank you with a gruff, "You're welcome." It was just kind of thing that Finn would do and he wasn't going to make a huge deal out of it, even if the barista might. He paid for the drinks, dropping his change in the tips jar. "Not cold enough already for ya?" Finn turned as he debated how to answer her question before settling for the most honest answer available. "I'm not a big coffee person. This drink's my favorite, even if it's cold. You were the one that was shivering!" He glanced back at her with a grin to show he was only teasing. He was impressed when May thanked Amy. Many people simply ignored those that served them (the "help"), but May was a humble person who remembered other people. Working sucked and Finn tried to be kind instead of over-demanding with anyone that did stuff for him, whether they received his money or not. It was only respectful, after all. He was happy to find that May was of the same caliber.

    As May explained Fantasy Football, Finn watched her intensely. He not only understood how into sports she was but also understood Fantasy Football after explanation. "I didn't fancy it myself when I first heard about it, but I tried it. BOOM! Hooked." He nodded, understanding. For him, that was story of football. When he first started playing, it had been to give his mother a distraction. He had watched it but wasn't really into it. This was, of course, before there was a whole popularity factor. Once Finn started playing with some neighbors in backyards on the weekend though, he was obsessed and truly loved the game. He started following the NFL and NCAA soon after. Since then, he hadn't looked back. Football was a part of him. "Okay, that makes a lot more sense than when my stepdad tried to explain it!" he told her with a laugh. He loved his stepdad, but explaining things? Not quite his strong suit. "I guess I'll just have to get started and see how it goes. I'm sure I'll be the same way." Or at least, Finn really hoped so. It was for the sake of family, after all. Family was worth it.

    Finn wasn't expecting a barrage of questions next though. Maybe he had put her on the spot with asking about Fantasy Football, but May enjoyed talking about that. Finn wasn't one for talking about himself much, so he was naturally kind of tongue tied. He looked up at her slightly helpless before sipping on his drink, delaying the inevitable. "Well, for fun? I guess it depends. I...." He trailed off as he almost said something about Rachel. She was not entering this conversation. "There's your normal stuff like bowling or roller skating or sports or whatever you're into. But the best place for having fun is the best restaurant in town: Breadsticks. It's pretty awesome." There. Generic stuff really, but now May wanted to know about him, personally? What did he do for fun? Did he even have time for fun these days? "Um, I really don't do all that much. I do spend a lot of time with my family. I have football that I would say I do for fun. Oh, and I'm in the glee club, so I sing for fun too. It's not that much, but it works." Smooth sailing and no Rachel, things were going well. He really did want them to hit it off, so he couldn't overload her with his problems. No, he was focusing on having a nice, normal conversation. It felt good and so right.

Finn pointed out that he wasn't the one shivering earlier and thus, he was justified in buying his drink. May looked up at him with a look of content. Technically, he was right. She was the one who was shivering, despite wearing her warmest coat. Maybe she'd have to buy a new one considering the winters here in Ohio. Still, it was nice that Finn was able to joke around with her. They had just met recently after all. She gave him a small joking nudge in the arm as she still wore the grin on her face while they went to sit down at their table.

As they sat there, May gave a grin, happy that Finn now, at least somewhat, understood the appeal of Fantasy Football. She wasn't usually very good at explaining things she loved. She was better at showing people her affection towards her hobbies, rather than explaining them. Regardless, Finn seemed to have a grasp of what she was saying and that was good. "Yeah, for sure! Trust me, you'll love it. You and your step-dad will wind up watching every game together and most likely screaming at the TV." She grinned as she picked up her drink and took another sip.

When May came to Lima, she by no means expected to meet anyone or make friends with anyone like the friends she had back in Chicago. She was convinced that she wasn't personable enough. Okay, maybe personable was the wrong word. She was definitely personable. The issue was that, she was fairly different from most girls. And it took people generally a lot of time to adjust to someone like her. Not that she blamed them, though she knew who she was and she wasn't going to change her personality for the sake of fitting in quicker and having more contacts in her cellphone. That was just not her style at all.

May listened intently as Finn explained what there is to do in the area and more importantly what he likes to do. She couldn't help but feel a sense of happiness that Finn spent so much time with his family. It was rare to find anyone who was considerate of their family, and Finn seemed to be all about it. He was taking up Fantasy Football to get to know his step-dad better and he just generally loves to be around them. It was nice to see. "Do you have any brothers or sisters?' She asked with a great deal of curiosity. She didn't know why she was so interested in knowing so much about Finn. She didn't want to seem like she was prying. "I'm sorry if I'm overloading you with questions. You can tell me to shut the hell up anytime you want." She assured him with a smile and a nod. "I promise I wouldn't be offended. She gave a little chuckle as she took another drink of her latte.

    Finn loved May's enthusiasm. Why was it that some many people had issues being energetic these days? So many people preferred to be lazy and complain about things. Finn liked to meet stuff head on and if there was a problem, he was bound to try and fix it. People worried to much and preferred to listen to themselves talk than actually do something about a problem. To be honest, it could be disheartening. But May? She wasn't like that all. He could tell that she was the kind of girl who would fix a problem if there was one. Finn laughed at the comment May made about yelling at the screen. "Yeah, like we don't do that enough already. My mom is constantly reminding us to keep it down. Kurt makes a point of being out of the house then witness it." At first, the family thing had taken a bit to get used to. But now? Finn really did enjoy it. He appreciated what he had, especially when he'd never had dinner with more than one other person before. Dinner as a family was actually an experience now. He wished they could do it all the time, but a few nights a week? Sometimes, it seemed better than the time he'd spent elsewhere for the whole week. Especially with events as they were lately. Finn was a family guy and it was as simple as that.

    Thankfully, May's next question was easy for him to answer. "Do you have any brothers or sisters?" He could go into the sob story about his dad and how he died fighting for the country.. It was a cool story, but a bit too sad for a beginning of a friendship. And besides, she'd been hearing about his current family. By now, he'd let the past stop weighing him down, even though his dad would always be with him in his heart. "Yeah, I have a stepbrother named Kurt. You might have seen him around McKinley before he switched schools to a boarding school in Westerville, Dalton Academy. He had some, ah, issues that McKinley refused to addressed, so he decided to feel safe and go to Dalton. He's loving it." He didn't really want to describe in detail the events that had caused Kurt's switch. They were personal. If she ever met Kurt, Kurt could tell her. Kurt was gay and Finn respected it completely. But telling an almost-stranger? He didn't know what the protocol for that was. He'd have to ask Kurt and find out or something. Finn also was still ashamed that he hadn't stuck up more for Kurt. He should have done something. That was another reason that Finn was determined to get back his nice guy personality. That nice guy was a whole lot better than the way Finn had been acting lately.

    May must have noticed how uncomfortable Finn had been with all the questions about himself. He'd been to busy thinking up answers to even ask her questions about herself! She must think that he was really impolite or something. He laughed at her suggesting he tell her to shut the hell up. That was not his style all, he thought as he shook his head. "Nope, you're fine. But if you don't mind, I do have questions for you. Where are you from? And why did you move here?" He hoped that his questions weren't too intrusive, but they seemed pretty straightforward, at least for him. Though, he really would rather ask the questions anyways. That was just easier for him. He never knew what questions people would ask. Sometimes they unearthed things he preferred not to talk about... at all. Or simply memories he disliked. The mind was kind of funny that way. Finn took another sip of his drink. He really was enjoying meeting May. Lately, it seemed like he had no really close friends. He had "friends" who knew him and talked to him because he was the quarterback. But he didn't have anyone that he could really go to and actually talk to about stuff that was bugging him (um, Rachel?). He didn't have many people to go to advice for either. Maybe he would have asked Kurt, but Kurt wasn't at home anymore. And Finn really wasn't the kind of guy to text someone his problems or whatever. Could there be hope though? Would May be the person he needed?

May couldn't help but let out her usual melodic giggle at Finn's statement of his mother telling his step-dad and himself to quiet down when they watch football games. It was a funny image to visualize. Nevertheless, May nodded, "Yeah, I kind of get what you mean. I talk to the TV sometimes, as if the people can hear what I'm saying. I know they can't... but it is a sense of reassurance." She laughed at her own stupidity and covered her face with her hands in embarrassment. She liked the way the conversation was going with Finn. As she had figured before, it just felt very natural..

May continued to listen as Finn told her about his step-brother, Kurt. She nodded as she subconsciously played with a strand of her long brown hair. "That's too bad he left. I would have loved to meet him. Though, if he didn't feel...safe, at McKinley, then he made the right choice. I understand it in a way. On my first day, I got knocked on my ass by Sam." She remembered back to that moment. Of course, it was an accident, but it was nice to know that she had made a friend in Sam. He was nice to her from the moment they'd united, so to speak. It was too bad she hadn't met Finn while school was still in session. It would have been nice to not have to bug Sam all the time. Though, at least she had met Finn at all. Now they could at least commune if he wanted to.

She was happy that she didn't seem to impose on anything major when asking Finn questions. However, it was now Finn's turn to ask her some questions, and she didn't show any signs of nerves, mostly because she didn't really have anything to be nervous about. She crossed one leg over the other under the table and laced her hands together. "Well, I came from Chicago, Illinois. I liked it there for the most part. Though, I'm not a big Bears fan, despite being from there." She took a sip of her drink and continued onwards, "As far as coming here goes... My parents used to live in Ohio before they had moved to Chicago like twenty years ago. They missed the kind of 'home-y' feel of it. Plus, a lot of my aunts and uncles are here so they decided to just head back here." She shrugged, not having much more of an interesting answer. She wished it was more interesting than that, but it was extremely simple. "Sorry it's not so interesting. I'm fairly boring." She added as she flipped her part out of her face.

May decided to roll along and answer the questions that she had asked him as well, to be fair. "I have no brothers nor sisters. That's OK though. I don't mind being an only child, though sometimes I wish I had a sister to just have fun with. I find ways to distract myself though." She concluded that topic and looked across the room at the other customers who seemed to be enjoying their drinks and foods. She felt good sitting here. She was in a nice little cafe, with a nice guy, with a nice latte. This truly was perfect..
