So why ask it then?

Ben hadn't been particularly close to actually blurting that shit out. Yeah she'd asked for his opinion, but she hadn't asked for his lip. Man. What was it with people and blowing all social situations way out there? Bringing their goddamn rail guns to the fistfight. Ben wasn't going to be the one who prescribed all his peers calm the fuck down for once in their overstimulated, overinflated egotist lives.

But he was going to be the one, at least sans vocalization.

"Well you did ask it." There, that was something to say. Don't take it the wrong way, personally, or anything else that will make you say something stupid, Rea. "It's like... shit." Very good points in his opening statement, but Ben was just getting warmed up. State position, expound. "I swear everyone nowadays just takes talking to their fellow peers way too seriously. All this anxiety and fear of misstep, I think. I mean I guess it makes sense in modern political climes, but if it's just between folks from your school I don't think it works at all, you know? Guess what I'm trying to say is relax. Don't overthink it or psyche yourself out. People are judging you less than you think they are, I'm sure."

Man, that had been a mouthful. Ben's flexed his jaw a bit, chewing on his words a bit while they simmered.
