“You should be telling that to yourself, sweetheart.” He slowly leaned down, an inch away from her face before tapping the bottom of her chin. “You’re gonna need it.”
Keeping her eyes on him as he was just a few inches away from her face, “And you´re cocky too.. Great..”
Just as he was exiting the lounge, he was approached by someone. He had only seen a figure from the corner of his eye, but it didn’t have any feature that he could decipher to conclude if they were female or male. He turned his head over and upon meeting the person eye to eye, he smiled. He recognized them from his class. “Oh hey. Did you need something?”
"Uhm.. Where mostly just wondering if you had the time to help me out with some of the things from class.. I didn´t fully get it.." she said as she´d reached the male, and lifted her hand that was holding onto a couple of books.
Tommy nodded before reaching for one of her books again and flipping to a random page. “Do you have an exam or something coming up, maybe we could get started with the things that are going to be on that? Unless it’s everything then I think you might be screwed.” He joked as he looked up at her and licked his lips.
Sophie watched him a little before rubbing her neck, “Guess i´m a bit screwed then..” she mumbled as she bit her lip and leaned back against the chair
"Math is so simple!" He exclaimed before immediately feeling bad for being so dramatic about the whole thing. "Sorry, but yeah I could totally help you out with that. What has you so tripped up?"
Sophie watched him and lightly chuckled before smiling. “It´s okay, and i´d love that.” she said with a nod as she tucked some of her hair back behind her ear. “Uhm, just about everything.”
"Really?" He asked as he raised an eyebrow at her as he looked around again. "How about you tell me what you’re studying. I tend to do pretty well in school, who knows you might have found yourself a tutor?"
"Well do you know any college algebra?"
Tommy nodded when she lifted up the books, reaching for one before replying. “Studying stuff?” He asked as he flipped through the book quickly before putting it back down. “Not a lot of people sit here all day for fun so I could only imagine that’s what you’re doing.”
She kept looking at him as he grabbed one of her books and began looking at him, “Yeah exactly..” she said with a slight nod before listening to what he said next. “Oh if you only knew..”
Tommy shook his head and waved her worries away with his hand. “Don’t worry about it, things happen.” He looked around to make sure his manager wasn’t looking before pulling out the chair opposite her and turning it around to straddle it resting his arms on the back of it. “Nice to meet you Sophie. So tell me, why are you spending your afternoon in this coffee shop?”
Sophie watched him a little as he waved his hand in the air, the whole thing looking a bit silly really. But it was as he sat down that she straightened her back and smiled ever so slightly. “You too.. And you know just.. Stuff.” she mumbled and grabbed a hold of the books laying in front of her before lifting them up a few inches off the table before putting them back down.
"That’s not a good reason!"
"I feel like it´s a great reason.."
