"Andrew?" Clemence frowned, not recognizing the name. "Um, no, I don't think we've met, but my name is Clemence Bourdieu."

Clemence. Andrew thought hard, trying to put a face to that name, but he couldn't think of one. If he saw her, though, he would know if they'd met or not. "Oh, okay. Uh...have you eaten lunch yet?" he asked.

"Um, no...have you?" Clemence paused as she walked, then glanced around again. "Want to get something? Maybe we can figure this out."

"Yeah, sounds good. On or off campus?" Andrew asked, stretching out his legs.

"Yeah, definitely. I'll meet you there." Andrew smiled as he hung up, and headed over to the restaurant. The line wound halfway around the store, but he had been expecting that.

(guys just skip when you need to XD don't need to wait)
Mary approached him again and blew a bubble and brought it over his head, letting him feel like he was back on shore. "I bet you're happy you're still alive."

Clemence headed over to the Chipotle and groaned inwardly when she saw the line. She quickly scanned the crowd and pulled her phone out to text Andrew. Where should I find you?

In line. I'm wearing a gray shirt and jeans. Andrew sent the message and looked around again, keeping an eye out for anyone that might be looking for him.

(Wait. Did we actually skip then? I'm confused.)

Clemence read the text and looked up, squinting at the line as she looked for someone with a matching description. "Andrew?" She asked, walking up to a guy toward the back wearing the right clothes.

Cole stared at the bubble in awe, and finally nodded.

Andrew smiled. "Hey. Clemence, right?"

Clemence smiled with a bit of relief and nodded, but she still didn't recognize this guy. She took her place in line next to him and glanced up at the row of people. "Somehow in my head I didn't think it'd be this busy."
