Robyn was going to join sam but when she saw Alex talking to her she grinned and kept her distance so the two could talk. He gave her friend a thumbs up and a wink before flopping down a chair by Clayton.

"I-i've been good," Teddi stammered, clutching the beer Maria had given with clammy hands. He turned to Grace, trying his best to come off as not completely panicky. "Nothing, ah, nothing much. What's up with you?"

Grace laughed at Teddi's nervous response.
"I'm doing fine!" She responded. "What's got you all shaken, Teddi? You seem spooked."

Anatole simply sat against a wall, taking a peach soda out of his bag and drinking it in hopes that his seeming preoccupied would ward off unwanted conversation.

"Uh," Teddi mumbled, glancing around the room. "People."

Maria roamed off the sit near the game, sipping her own beer and grinning. “Is that your daughter?” She asked Natalie, leaning closer and cooing. “She’s adorable!”

Sam stood up straight and felt a small flush to her cheeks, “Oh, good good. Might graduate early next year, been working hard on school,” she said and pushed her hair behind her ear, “And you?”

Natalie nodded. "Yeah, that's Aria," she said. "She's 5 now."

Clayton took note of Robyn sitting by him. "How's today been treating you?" he asked.

"Yeah, school's been keeping me busy. But that's great about graduating eatly! Any ideas on what you'll do after?" He asked, crossing his arms over his chest as he leaned his shoulder against the wall.

Sam shook her head and then shrugged, “I’m not sure, but I’ll keep you notified,” she said and drank some more. She played with a curl of her hair and then looked at him, “What about you? What are you doing after school?”

"Uh," Teddi mumbled, glancing around the room. "People."

"Hm." Grace nodded wisely. "Well, you wanna know a cure for people poisoning?"
She reached into her hoodie pocket and pulled out her secret weapon...her pet turtle, which she chose to bring due to his small, carryable size and the fact that honestly, parties never have enough cute animals. "Holding a turtle."

"Oh gosh, I honestly don't know. I think I'd like to go to graduate school? Maybe?" He chuckled and shrugged. "I dunno."

“Ha, unless I want to teach, I don’t really need any further degrees, but I might end up working for the school as an intern,” Sam said and shrugged, “I like it here. It’s not—-home”

Alex smiled a bit and nodded, glancing down. "I could understand that. But, I mean, you could really go anywhere you wanted, you know?"

Sam looked at Alex and noticed he was glancing away and raised an eyebrow. “I mean, right. I could. I could really do programming from anywhere,” She told him and tilted her head, “Are you going to go into some kind of greenhouse work?”

"Hellish would be an understatement," Robyn replied, "Third year is literally going to kill me," she groaned before sipping a bit more of her drink. Robyn glanced over at Sam and Alex briefly, smiling to herself. "So Clayton, how is third year treating you?" she asked.

"Greenhouse? Probably not. I kind of was thinking the parks service," he said. "Or maybe something marine based?"
