So, it was true that he was misunderstood - someone really thought he was going to commit suicide. And because of this certain someone's reaction, he found himself having a hard time to explain and clear it up. He never experienced something like this before, and he never thought that he would ever be scolded by a stranger.
If they were to know who he really was, he doubted they would even have the audacity to do so.
"What are you talking about...?" Damien started a little reluctantly, not really used to this kind of confrontation.
"I think you're misunderstanding something here."
"Huh...?" Aira blurted out, dumbfounded.
"You mean to say that you aren't trying to end your life?"
He did not respond to that - he only stared at her as if she had grown two heads. The answer is already obvious. And with that, she finds herself blushing in embarrassment this time.
"Why were you on the edge of the bridge, then?! Why were you looking down like you were about to throw yourself?!" Aira exclaimed, flailing her hands about as she was no longer sure of what to do.
"I wasn't..." Damien said before casting down his gaze.
"I'm lost. I'm new around this place, and I've been trying to look around."
Her brow twitched at that.
She felt her face heating up even more, completely mortified. Feeling like she had really made a total fool out of herself, she pouted and fiddled with her fingers. It's too late to take that back now.

He still appears a little wary of her. But if she continues smiling at him like that, he will not be able to refuse. With that, he slowly placed his hand on top of her hers. She then pulled him up and helped him stand on his feet again.
For some reason, Aira could sense that Damien was different from the other boys she met. For the most part, he behaved in a way that raised concerns before proceeding to blush furiously and act all sheepish. That was probably something she would never see a typical guy do.
"So, what's your name?" she inquired but only to earn his silence.
When she noticed him taking a step away from her, she felt a bit hurt. She probably scared him with her reaction earlier.
"It's okay. You don't have to tell me if you don't want to," Aira continued and smiled in understanding, making Damien feel a bit guilty.
"I apologize I can't tell you."
"Hmmm.... You sure talk formally. Are your parents strict?"
"Well, ummm... Y-Yeah...? I mean yes. Yes, my family as a whole is."
Hearing that, she couldn't keep herself from beaming at him again - he could actuall
