"Oh... Fine, I guess. Kinda wish I didn't have to spend the day watching my dad's place whilst he and mom go do... Well, whatever happy couples do on their anniversary. But otherwise, I suppose I'm doing alrigh-"

Rachael was listening intently to Ruby when she heard a snort. She turned and saw Jasper Rourke standing nearby, looking at some records. Rachael didn't know much about Jasper. She heard of his incident when he was outed and how he left school for a bit, but she didn't think much about it. However, she did remember how he acted in school. He was arrogant, like other jocks, prone to picking on weaker men. She had tried to stay out of his way, but it looks like he had something he needed to say.

"Oh, sorry girlies, were you saying something? I heard this 'Bork' recently and, wouldn't you know it, I had this sudden urge to fall asleep,"

Oh. No. Rachael absorbed what Jasper had just said. He must have been mistaken, it's not easy to fall asleep when Björk is playing. Maybe he was simply in a state of fatigue while listening. Before she could say anything, Randall interjected himself into the conversation.

"It's pronounced Björk. It's spelled 'buh-jork,' but it's pronounced Björk."

"Relax Randall," Ruby said, "I'm pretty sure Jasper's smart enough to figure out all by himself how to pronounce Bjork......eventually."

Rachael was surprised by this sudden exchange. She had just been having a friendly chat with her friend and now the four of them were discussing Björk's name and music. She noticed that Jimmy was making his way out of the record shop, he probably had somewhere to go. Still, she thought it would be good to try and respond to Jasper's comments.

"Falling asleep while listening to her music is actually pretty cool to do," Rachael spoke. "If you listen to her music while wearing really good headphones and with your eyes closed, the experience is pretty surreal. I did that while on a plane ride to visit my sister in Charlottesville, Virginia, and it was really intense. The things I saw while listening to 'Bachelorette' and 'Isobel' were some of the most interesting things my mind ever came up with. It's great for artistic inspiration."

"Still, I'm sure you were listening to some of her quieter stuff though, like 'Solstice', but when you hear more bombastic songs like 'Human Behavior' and 'Big Time Sensuality', you're mind will be racing. It's really sweet."

Alright, I gave him the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he will be receptive to what I said. At least he knows how to pronounce her name now though. Although we might have just heard him pronounce it wrong or something.
