Meta wakes up from his slumber and feels as if someone's looking at him. Meta thinks about the many outcomes
"If it's someone in my team, we're safe. If it's Yang, I'll open a portal and hide in the forest. If it's a psycopath, I'll either fight them or scream like a bitch and run....wait, how would Yang get in here? Anyways, we look at the count of three. one...two...three..."
Meta quickly spins his body as his eyes connect to the person who's looking at him. Meta's eyes focus on the watcher's eyes. Only the top half of the person's head is visible. Meta says in his tired voice "Who dat?"
"EEP!" The person becomes startled and shoots their head down to the bunk underneath Meta's. Meta opens his eyes and goes to the corner of his bunk. He dangles his head on the edge and looks at the bunk underneath him. "C-CRAP!!!" Meta explains as he loses his balance and falls onto the floor. "FUCK!!!" Meta sits up and rubs the back of his head. The person looks at Meta as their face turns from blushing to a normal calm expression. "A-are you okay?" The person asks the harpy. Meta looks at the person and finally puts two and two together. The person on the bottom bunk was Ruby.
"Aye...WAIT, WHY ARE YOU HERE!?!?"
"I-I DON'T KNOW!!!"
"THIS IS NOT NORMA-...wait...now I remember."
Meta begins explaining what happened the night before. Ruby sits on the edge of the bunk and listens. Once the story ends, Ruby asks "S-so, since you couldn't find my room, you allowed me to sleep in here?" Meta nods his head "That's the gist."
Meta sits on the bunk across from Ruby and takes out his pocket watch. "Where the hell are they?" Meta exclaims out loud. "Who're you talking about?" Ruby asks. Meta puts the pocket watch away "My team. It's 11:24 AM, they should be here."
"Well, it's sunday. So they probably went somewhere for the night."
"Shouldn't you go to your dorm room before your sister kills us."
"Why would she do-...wait...OH, CRUD!!!" Ruby realises what would happen if Yang saw the scenario. "Sh-she would think we were..."
Meta folds his wings "Just say it."
Ruby works up the courage and says "K-kissing..."
Meta's eyes widen as he tries holding back laugher. Ruby looks at Meta with confusion "Wh-why are you laughing?" Meta replies "Because...HAHA that's too cute!" Ruby still looks confused at Meta "What else would she worry about?" Meta stops laughing and says in his most sophisticated voice "Sex." Ruby thinks for a bit and still has the look of confusion. "What is 'sex'?" Ruby asks. Meta begins informing Ruby "Y'see, sex is when-"
Meta and Ruby hear a loud knock at the door. They stop talking the moment the sound appears. Meta works up his courage and asks "Wh-who's there-"
Meta and Ruby jump up and panic as they realise the voice belongs to Yang. Meta tries calming down and says "SH-SHE'S IN HERE-"
"WHY IS SHE IN THERE!!!"
"SHE WAS SLEEPING IN HERE WITH ME-"
Ruby looks at Meta and whispers "What were you thinking!?" Meta looks at Ruby "I-I thought she would want to know the tru-"
Meta's sentence is interrupted by a large chunk of wood that flys past him. Meta and Ruby look at the hole in the door and see the red anger in Yang's eyes. Ruby quickly says "UH. M-META AND I ARE GONNA GO FOR A WALK!!!" Yang continues punching the door, causing more and more chunks of wood to go flying. Meta and Ruby give up on calming her down and try looking for a way to escape. Meta looks at the window and then at Ruby. Meta takes a deep breath and jumps out the window, breaking it. Ruby looks at him in amazement. Meta begins flying and stays flapping his wings in front of the broken window. "I-I guess this is good bye." Meta says to Ruby. "Y-yeah...I guess it i-"
Yang shouts from the broken door "RUBY, YOU'RE IN BIG TROUBLE!!!"
Ruby looks at Meta and shouts "T-TAKE ME WITH YOU!!!"
Ruby burst out the broken window and clings onto Meta. Meta goes down a bit, but picks himself back up and moves Ruby onto his back. The two panicked teens look at Yang through the broken window. Before Yang could jump on Meta, he flies off to the city with Ruby still on his back. Yang roars her anger out saying things like "YOU'RE NOT GONNA TAKE MY SIS!!!" and "YOUR BOTH IN BIG TROUBLE WHEN YOU GET BACK!!!"
Meta and Ruby make it to the city and begin walking. Meta takes out his scroll and messages Blank "Where're you guys?" Meta gets a message from Blank as he continues walking through the city with Ruby. The message read "Sorry, we ended up sleeping at an inn. How was the night alone with Ruby?"
Meta and Blank continue messaging each other
"Don't say it like that. Things are already bad."
"Yang is pissed at me and Ruby. I have a feeling she thinks that I slept with Ruby."
"Huh, I guess you finally stopped being a pussy."
"Fuckin' 'ell, is now really the time?"
"You know I was joking. Anyways, did you really have sex with her?"
"No. I had her sleep in your bunk while I slept in mine."
"Okay. Be careful, Meta. If word goes out like this..."
"People will end up thinking the same thing Yang is thinking."
Meta looks up from his scroll and looks at Ruby. Ruby is looking around the city in amazement. Meta looks back at the scroll and types "I'll make sure things don't go outta hand."
"I doubt it. But I think there's a small chance that you know what you're doing."
"Thanks, gotta go. There' a weapon shop and I see a sale!"
"ha, good luck."
Meta puts the scroll in his vest and goes to the weapon shop with Ruby. They end up traveling to different shops and seeing all the things that they sell. Meta continues learning about this universe thanks to all the music, items, and food that he saw. As well as the many things Ruby told him. "This place is filled with interesting things." Meta says as he continues walking with Ruby. Ruby continues looking around "Yeah, and it's larger than the places I've been to."
Meta's stomach growls and Ruby begins laughing "Haha, that sounded like a grimm!"
Meta just looks around and finds a dinner. Meta heads to the dinner as Ruby follows behind him. The two enter the dinner and begin talking as they wait for the waiter and the food.
As time goes by, the two learn more and more about each other through the stories and jokes they tell. Ruby learns that Meta is unable to swim, which explains why he panicked when she poured water on him.
Meta learns that Ruby is actually the youngest student at Beacon, at age 16. Meta thinks to himself "That explains why she doesn't know about sex...kinda..."
Their food comes and they continue their conversation as they eat.
Meta and Ruby end up hearing interesting stories from the other's childhood.
As night comes, the two head back to the school, forgetting about the upcoming threat of Yang's fists and the other worries that would lie in their minds.
Ruby leads Meta to her dorm room, as to show him where she is. Turns out team RWBY's room is only ten doors down from team MACB's room. Ruby opens the door and sees Weiss doing homework and Blake reading a book. The two look up from their tasks and see Meta sanding next to Ruby. Weiss asks "Who's this?" Ruby drags Meta in the room and introduces him to Weiss and Blake. "Wait, so this is the guy Yang's been talking about?" Blake asks Ruby. Ruby nods her head and says "I don't think Yang likes him that much." "No duh" Weiss says "She's been in a fit saying things like 'I'm gonna punch the feathers out of Meta.' "
Meta expression changes from neutral to fear. Ruby, Weiss, and Blake see the fear in Meta's eyes and try changing the subject. "Anyways.~ I'm guessing the two of you had a nice time."
Meta begins calming down and replies "Yeah, it was great. We had fun and laughed the time away." "That's good." Blake says as she continues reading her book. Weiss continues working on her homework and Ruby smiles at Meta. "Thank you for taking me out, even if it wasn't planned, I had fun." Ruby says to Meta in a happy tone. "Aye. You're more talkative than the other people I met. So I gotta thank you with all me might." Meta says to Ruby, trying to hold back the urge to say "cute."
Meta walks to the door and opens it. "G'night. If Yang asks, tell her I'm staying at an inn."
The three girls ask "Will you?"
"No, I'm gonna be in my dorm. I just don't want Yang to punch me in my sleep."
Meta leaves, closes the door, and heads to his dorm room. Once he goes into team MACB's dorm, he finds everyone already asleep. Meta sighs, closes the door, and flys to his bunk.
Meta removes his clothes and places them under his pillow before closing his eyes. As Meta drifts off to sleep, he imagines Ruby's face for some reason. Meta begins feeling warm inside and gains a sense of safety before falling asleep.
