Ruby sighed and sat for a moment, nursing her cold cup of coffee she had nestled in her hands. She stared blankly out the window, not at anything in particular. She was infamous for spacing out for lengthy amounts of time. Sometimes she would get to the point where someone could speak to her for almost five minutes without her even knowing.

This had garnered her a lifelong reputation for being rude and distant, as well as being observed for weird and abnormal behavior. But she used this to her advantage, accessing herself plenty of time free from the polite conversations and awkward social interactions that most people find themselves trapped in.

She always found these to be the moments where her best ideas and fantasies came into play.
