Ajaccio was not often in New Zealand, in fact apart from about three weeks total in a year he was not in New Zealand. But, it was his mother’s birthday, so he and his dad had come back for that exact event. Ajax liked New Zealand enough, it was still a fair oddity, not really the country he’d been born in and did have a fixed abode in, it didn’t feel like home in the slightest. But, then, nowhere felt like home in a traditional sense, though it was not something he particularly longed for. Ajaccio really liked the near nomadic lifestyle he had with his father. He couldn’t imagine how boring living in the same place all of the time was. Ajax ruffled his messy, unruly curls as he rode through Brightstone on his skateboard, adjusting his hair as he put his cap back on. It was a nice, warm spring day, it was a little colder than he was used to, he’d just spent the last month or so in India, so it wasn’t what he was most used to, but still t-shirt weather. Ajax had fairly tanned skin, though with how the weather had been in the last few places he’d been it was a little darker than normal. He moved with ease on the skateboard, eventually coming to the park that he’d been told about. There were other kids at it, playing around in the park, but it was fairly tame. However the boy headed inside anyway, getting off the skateboard and walking inside. He had his trusty rucksack with little badges and patches from many of the places he’d been to, it was old, sun bleached and worn but he was careful to take it off his back and place his skateboard on top. He survey the park and looked at the swings. No one was on them, but he wasn’t interested in swing, instead Ajaccio, took a running start and climbed his way up the pole and to sit on top. Marvelling as he sat at everything around it. He knew there was a chance he might end up at school in New Zealand but he sort of hoped he wouldn’t, but Ajax could admit that maybe it wouldn’t be too bad to spend a whole load of time in New Zealand.

Now that she was 11, Nicole had been able to convince her parents more and more that she was allowed to go out exploring on her own, especially on trips to Brightstone. As long as she promised to stay in the park. And not talk to strangers. But she was still free, particularly free of pesky little brothers.
Unfortunately, Nicole always felt a bit weird playing on the playground by herself, worried that someone might think she was some sad kid without any friends. But wandering around not playing was about as equally weird and sad looking too, so she'd been a bit stuck for what to do until she'd spotted the kid climbing the swing set.
Wandering over, she peered up at him, half concerned he'd fall, half impressed he'd been able to get up there in the first place. "That'll hurt an awful lot if you fall, you know."

Ajaccio liked his position up high, he let his legs swing lightly, and moved his hands occasionally so he wasn’t always holding on. It wasn’t that high, if he fell he’d be just fine. He was additionally sure that being in the magical world would probably help him heal up faster, so even less risk for him. The boy adjusted his cap, brushing stray strands of messy curly hair from his eyes when someone below him spoke. He moved a little so that he could see better. It was a girl, around his age and she seemed a little concerned for his safety. Ajax just let himself grin at her, ”Maybe, but it would be worth it,” he replied as if it was obvious, his accent hinting towards Kiwi but largely an amalgamation of others since he never really stayed in any one location long enough to adopt a distinct one, perhaps a little more americanised. He didn’t really mind getting hurt, he’d fallen from his skateboard numerous times, fallen from other places, this would be no different. He rubbed his tan arms lightly as he just let himself take in the view from up there, ”Would you like to join me?” the boy looked back at her with an excited smile. He doubted she would but he could move to make room for her if she wanted to. ”I’m Ajaccio by the way, but you can just call me Ajax,” Ajaccio added grinning. He was a friendly enough person, since he’d moved about so much making friends easily had always been necessary.

Nicole scrunched her face up incredulously when the boy said falling would be worth it. Was the view up there really so good he'd be okay falling? Nicole didn't think she could be that daring. She looked at the swing set pole, the boy, and the ground in succession, raising a doubtful eyebrow at the offer to join him up there. "I.. Don't think I can even get up there," She said, fidgeting with her hair. She didn't want him to think she was lame, but it still seemed awfully dangerous and Nicole had never been a great climber really. "I could probably get up on top of the monkey bars though!" She said, taking a step over towards them instead. That seemed a lot safer, and way easier to get up on, the were made for climbing after all. "Ajax, okay. That's a unique name," She said politely. It was a bit of a weird name, but at least she'd remember it. "I'm Nicole." Her own name was on the plain side, and she sometimes wished it was a bit more exciting.

Ajaccio smiled at her, not entirely surprised when she said that she wouldn’t be able to join him up at the top, but could manage the monkey bars. The tanned boy smiled at girl and nodded lightly, ”Okay monkey bars it is!” he knew that the monkey bars would be a little easier and they were a little safer. He moved from where he was sat upon the top of the swings and just the metal of the swings, to get himself back to the ground, landing with a soft jump. Just in time to hear her say that his name was unique. He laughed lightly, ”That’s one way of putting it. I like it, but it's a weird name,” Ajaccio had a friendly and excitable tone, ”Nicole, nice to meet you! Do you live in New Zealand?” the boy practically bounced his way over to the monkey bars. He stood where they started, jumped up and grabbed the bar, pulling himself up with some ease and getting to his feet when he was on top of the bars. And then looked back towards her, ”Do you want a hand?” Ajax offered bending down so he was crouched while on the bars he didn’t mean to be showing off, but it was just happening.

Nicole smiled when Ajax agreed to come down and join her on the monkey bars, now she had someone to talk to and it was a relief he didn't see put out back her hesitation to scale the swing set. Ajax seemed unperturbed by the drop to the ground, or by the climb to the top of the monkey bars, navigating with an enviable ease. Nicole didn't consider herself uncoordinated, but compared to Ajax she certainly felt it.
"Do you not live here?" She asked, confused, when Ajax asked if she lived in New Zealand. That might certainly explain why Ajax seemed so exciting and cool, if he was a some sort of foreign traveller or something.
She watched impressed, as Ajax effortlessly scaled the monkeys bars too. Well, that explains how he got onto the swing set too, she supposed."Oh, uh, okay, thanks." Nicole said when Ajax offered her a hand, pulling herself up and shimmying on the bar a bit to grab Ajax's hand. She definitely didn't feel brave enough to stand up like he did, and she was half worried they'd both fall if she let him take all her weight. Once she was up, Nicole sat, a little wobbly, on the top of the bars, kicking her legs and gripping the bars tight.

Ajaccio shrugged a little at the question, ”Sorta,” he said, ”Technically yes, but I’ve never lived here for longer than a month,” the boy explained though he wasn’t really going into much details. He knew the way he’d been brought up wasn’t particularly normal, that his accent was an indescribable mixture of everything else and why he would even ask if someone lived in New Zealand. ”My dad travels for work so we move about,” the boy added with a warm and friendly tone. He wasn’t going into it much still but offering little extra bits of information that the girl might like, certainly they were all still things that he was happy talking about. ”I’m guessing you do live here?” the boy asked, sure that she did but not necessarily wanting to assume anything about her. He’d met enough people from all sorts of places to know that he probably shouldn’t. The boy helped her up and returned to be standing. The girl seemed a little less at ease, so he sat down in front of her, not really holding on but letting his legs swing beneath him. ”Are you scared?” he asked, it was a genuinely curious question, no malice in his tone, just a friendly and soft tone, If she was scared he’d happily do something else. He loved climbing things, loved being up high, loved spending time doing numerous other supposedly dangerous things but Ajax knew it wasn’t for everyone.

Nicole leant forward a little as Ajax spoke about travelling, her nerves about falling momentarily forgotten while she tried to imagine all the cool far off places he might have lived. "That's so cool, I've always wanted to travel one day. Where have you lived? Have you ever been to France? Or America? I was hoping I could convince my parents to let me go to Beauxbatons, but they won't, so I have to go to boring Hogwarts," She frowned, Ajax looked to be her age and had already been to probably way more places than she ever would. "But yeah, I live here. Never lived anywhere else," Nicole finished, a bit dejectedly.
It was a bit of a relief when Ajax finally sat down next to her, Nicole no longer having to worrying about her balance while she turned to look at him as much. "I'm not-" She started at his question, pausing mid sentence before deciding to be honest. She'd already gushed about how little she'd travelled, it wasn't like Ajax probably expected her to be as brave or daring as he seemed to be. "A little bit, I'm not very good at heights," She gave a small laugh, trying to brush off the confession. "I can do this though, hang on!" Gripping the bar beneath her tightly, Nicole took a fortifying breath before letting her self swing backwards, unable to contain a quick yelp as she swung upside-down, her knees hooked over the bar to hold her there. "Tada!" She said, a touch awkwardly. She didn't know a lot of tricks to do, but she could do this one. But as she hung there for a moment, she remembered a small problem with this one. "Oh.. I uh.. I can't get myself up. Or down."

Ajaccio nodded at the two locations that she gave, ”Yeah, I’ve been to both, several times. I lived in Paris for like a month, several other places too. I really like Dijon in France,” the boy said, with a wide smile, ”America’s really cool too, I’ve been to a lot of places in America but I love like the Maine area, and Yosemite area, like all of the huge expansive forests and lakes, the winter wasteland in Alaska. Hawaii’s pretty cool too,” the boy shrugged, ”We move about a lot!” he smiled lightly and gave a small chuckle, his tone was light, friendly and talkative, though probably accidentally boasting just because he’d been to so many places. ”That’s cool! I’ll be living in New Zealand for school, which I’m nervous about, but if everyone else can do it, so can I!” he laughed lightly. The young boy nodded lightly, and then when he’d be about to say something just watched as the girl swung herself backwards. He grinned easily, getting back to his feet and looking at her. ”That’s so cool Nicole!” He would’ve done the same but she then seemed to struggle to get herself back. He leaned down a little and lay across several bars before he reaching down to where she could grab his hand and he could pulled her back up, ”I can help, just grab my hand and I’ll pull you back,” he hoped that she would want to do that, and was more than sure that he would manage it. If she didn’t want that they’d need to figure something else out.

Nicole gave a dreamy sigh when Ajax talked more about where he'd travelled. She'd have to do some reading later, especially about France so they could talk more about it later. It was bad enough she'd never gone any where, let alone not knowing about half the locations Ajax had already mentioned. "Why do you move so much?" She asked. It certainly sounded glamourous, but Nicole figured she might eventually get homesick if she had to travel all the time.
Hanging upsidedown was daunting, but Nicole flushed happily when it sounded like Ajax might be impressed. Still it wasn't long till Nicole felt all the blood rushing to her head, what had she been thinking, trying to show off and now she was stuck. Definitely not cool. Nervously, she reached for Ajax's hand, using her other hand to hold down her shirt while she hung. "Okay, but if we fall, I'm blaming you," She said, half joking, half actually concerned they would both end up in the dirt.

Ajaccio gave a warm smile, ”My dad is a travel writer slash blogger,” Ajax told her, ”He works for a company that send him to places to experience all of the things they have on offer, and then write about it, they put it in travel guides and other stuff. He also does a lot of work on his blog doing the same sort of thing but more personally. I just tag along,” Ajaccio said with some clearly practiced ease, his tone was a little bored, but it was largely because it was just the sort of thing he repeated without really understanding, it was what his father did, but even Ajaccio didn’t understand it all of the time. He liked that sort of lifestyle, enjoyed moving around and experiencing different sights and places, he liked learning cultures and languages. It was a fun and enjoyable experience for him. But it was going to make the transition harder he though. The boy was keen to help her, and he smiled a little as took his head and joked a little about falling, ”It’s not that far, we’d be okay! Just don’t land on your neck,” Ajax said with a little grin both joking with her and being quite serious. He grasped her hand and slowly began pulling it towards him, adjusting himself on the bars to continue to pull her up. He was slower than he might’ve been with someone he knew was more confident, more deliberate. ”Almost got you,” he said to her as he pulled up the last little bit that he needed to.

At Ajax's teasing, Nicole grabbed Ajax with her other hand, splitting her focus between frowning and keeping her balance as he pulled. "Well I hadn't been worried about that till you said it!" She griped, holding onto his hand a bit tighter until she was back upright. Doing her best to catch her breath, Nicole tried to subtly regain her composure and right the messy state her hair was probably in. "Phew, thanks," She said, finishing tucking her hair behind her ears and making herself a bit more comfortable on the bars. She wasn't going to be trying anything like that again anytime soon. "I guess I'm not some crazy climber like you are," She smiled, looking down and her feet hanging over the bars. "Is that all you do while you're off on the world then? Climb stuff?" She knew he'd mentioned just tagging along with his dad, but to Nicole, travel writer still sounded pretty exciting.

Ajaccio was pleased when she was sitting on the bars again and smiled with ease at her as she adjusted herself to be sitting how she wanted to upon the bars. He moved away from her, and sat upon one of the other bars. He adjusted his position as she joked with him. ”It’s a playground, everything’s made to be climbed!” he returned with an easy lightness to his tone. Ajax let himself do as the girl had done, swing backwards and then letting his hands go from the bar to hang loose above his head. He’d forgotten he was wearing his hat which fell to the ground below him, unleashing his mop of unruly curls, ”I do lots of things, I go to school and stuff too,” the boy letting himself just hang easily. The boy leaned back up and grabbed the bar, swing his legs down and letting go to land on the ground below them with his knees bent. ”What do you do when you’re here in New Zealand, not climbing over everything?” the boy was looking up at her, grabbing the hat and tossing it to where the rest of his things were. ”Do you go to school or do you get homeschooled?” the boy added before he began getting himself back up to sit on the bars with her.

Nicole shifted awkwardly, laying herself along the top of the bars to have a better view of Ajax while he hung, while still keeping a good grip herself. "I guess I'm more of the sitting type, then," She said, trying to ignore her lingering embarrassment at getting stuck earlier. She smiled at the site of Ajax's crazy hair, it looked extra fluffy upside down. "I bet school is way more interesting when you're travelling the world though. I'm homeschooled right now with my brother, so I can't wait for Hogwarts, even if it won't be as cool as Beauxbatons I guess," She applauded quietly when Ajax swung down onto the ground, still impressed with how at ease the boy seemed as he clambered around. Nicole was content to stay spread across the bars and chat, it was much more her speed. "I like reading I guess, and uh, I collect crystals too." She fidgeted with her hair, her life sounded so boring when she talked about it sometimes.

Ajaccio smiled at her, ”Nothing wrong with just sitting!” he told her, he didn’t think anyone should feel bad for just wanting to sit, he certainly wouldn’t if that was what he did. He knew that he just liked climbing, tended to be always moving about. ”School is school no matter where you go,” the boy replied with a little shrug, his education had varied between actually schools and homeschooling. He smiled a little, ”Is your brother younger than you?” he asked as he settled himself back upon the the bars with a wide smile in her direction, ”What’s the obsession with France? Are you french or something?” the boy couldn’t help but think that given she’d always lived in New Zealand that her talking about Beauxbatons being cooler was a bit odd but perhaps she had just heard it was more of a palace that a castle and would rather that. ”I heard Beauxbatons is like a palace, apparently it’s really cool,” the boy said repeating back what he’d heard others say about the aforementioned school. ”What do you read? And are these like crystal crystals or like amethyst rocks and stuff?” the boy was curious about her, and had a friendly tone as he asked the question. He was swinging his legs underneath him unable to really keep still but keen to just sit and listen to her.
