((Henry Spencer continued from Cruising and Perusing))

Contrary to popular opinion, Henry liked the school's little library. Sure, it was lacking in some areas, but it made up for it in charm. And it had a surprising number of non-fiction books that, while aged, had contained a variety of interesting factoids Henry stored away for further pondering of. Plus, it was nice and bright and good for reading, even if he had to bring his own books.

BYOB, what an interesting acronym. It was also used as a term in restaurants and parties, for "bring your own beer" to inform guests that alcohol wasn't served. It sounded internet-based, but apparently was older than that. Interesting! Henry learned that just now, browsing Wikipedia on his phone. Another reason the library was cool; the librarians didn't yell at you for being on your phone.

Lunchtime went by quickly for Henry, since he was a fast eater, so he'd opted to hang out in the library for a bit, just to relax before afternoon classes started up. He was unusually tired today from his late-night reading, but that meant he was still pretty energetic compared to many of his classmates. Geez, some of them were like zombies. Zombie high school, sounded like one of those Japanese animes or something. Wait, wasn't there one of them already? Hmm...

Henry heard conversation from the table near the one he was seated at. Cocking his head to glance over, Henry was pleasantly surprised to spy Bridgette and Daniel sitting together. Daniel was cool, though Henry didn't know Bridgette very well. Still, a person you don't know very well is just a friend you haven't made, or something like that. Regardless! Time to introduce himself.

Approaching the table, Henry offered a big grin and pocketed his phone. "Hey guys! How's it going?" Henry said, a little too loudly for the library. Whoops. Hopefully the librarians didn't get upset, he liked them. "Sorry." He added in a hushed voice. "But no, what's up?" Hopefully they didn't reply with one of those "The sky" comments and the like. The sky wasn't technically "up", after all. Was it? It was sort of...hmm...Henry didn't know! What even quantified "up" anyway? He ought to look that up.

Hmm, these two seemed busy. Let's see what they're up to!

Henry made his way around the chairs and peered over Bridgette's shoulder to get a better view of the paper on the table she seemed to be working on. It appeared to be a drawing, which was pretty cool. It looked like...an old guy? Oh, it was some kind of monk. Cool, cool. He was dressed oddly, though, like some kind of strange tunic thing? Huh.

"Wow, cool, you do art stuff?" Henry exclaimed, more quietly than his initial greeting. "It's a neat drawing, but I don't draw much, so I dunno how it works. Like, how do you do that kind of stuff?" Art was cool. Henry wished he could do it with a degree of effectiveness, but his drawings usually looked like noodle people. Hmm, he could go for some noodles...Oh, never mind, Amigara Fault's noodle people. Noodles were no long attractive. Well, they weren't that ugly before they went into the faults, but post-'THIS IS MY HOLE' they were kind of gross and weird. Not delicious.

Henry briefly looked over at Danny, who seemed to be scribbling out rude stuff on the table. Henry could get behind that. Then he glanced over at Bridgette and inquired, "Do you ever draw food? Like, say, spaghetti and meatballs?"

Darn, he was hungry now. He'd already had lunch, but now he wanted more food.

Henry's eyes widened.

Curse his periodic inability to recognize social cues! He hadn't realized these two wanted some private time. Hmm, maybe they were dating? Possible. They might just be friends, though. Best to not jump to conclusions! Regardless, though, he ought to apologize and leave them to their business.

"Oh, sorry. Didn't mean to intrude. I was just making conversation." Henry said in a hushed voice. Turning around, Henry moved away from the table and started towards the bookshelves. Hopefully he'd find some cool factoid-filled book of some kind. Before he did that, though, he turned back and called quietly,

"Oh, and good luck on your hypothetical date!"
