The girl who dreams on the back of a giant space turtle.

Penelope looked at Rene as she finally spoke up. She almost forgot the other girl was sitting at their table, since she had been so quiet.

Penelope turned her attention back to Astrid as she continued speaking. Once she finished, Penelope sat there for a moment, pondering what to say and how to say it in a way that would make sense to Astrid and her worldview.

"Well... the appeal is that I don't really have to think all that much. I can play Animal Crossing when I want to keep my mental stamina for difficult, important activities later on in the day." Penelope flicked a speck of food off the table, before continuing to speak. "It's sorta like how it's been scientifically proven that humans can only make a certain number of decisions in a day- it's why people who have to make a lot of decisions just wear the same thing over and over again because it doesn't require thought."

Penelope leaned back further in her chair before glancing at the lunchroom clock and realizing that she needed to get out soon if she wanted to meet up with her boyfriend between classes.

"Oh, shit. I need to go." Penelope said as she stood up and started getting her things together. "Sorry to interrupt, but I need to meet up with my boyfriend before class starts back up. See you later, Astrid."

Penelope slung her backpack over her shoulder before calmly walking away from the table, internally excited for the few minutes she'd get alone with her boyfriend before class.
