((Sandra Dyer continued from Is it bright on Planet Cool?))

Mini golf.

A.K.A. not real golf.

Mini golf was a game, not a sport, see?

Which is why, despite being at a place whose main attraction was mini golf, that's not what Sandra was here for. It's what her family was here for, but not her. She'd made it plainly clear that she wouldn't be participating in their mini golf rounds, opting instead for the driving range. And given how Michael played mini golf, she was going to be here for a while.

Though to be fair, driving ranges weren't exactly real golf either but...

Well, can't win 'em all.

Sandra shrugged mentally. She could justify it by saying practicing on the driving range was better practice for real golf than putting the ball past an animatronic dragon.

Her parents had given her some money so that she could buy some golf balls.

She'd gone through a bucket before a break, and was currently in line at the ice cream hut, trying to figure out what to buy.

Of course, Sandra wouldn't know that she was being stared at from behind, being too busy trying to figure out what flavor of ice cream she wanted to buy. There were many good flavors, which had surprised Sandra the first time she came here.

Well, she'd have a bit time to work it out still, right?

"Next? What would you like?" said the guy at the counter, his voice loud and clear but his face betraying his relative disinterest.

So apparently the line in front of her wasn't as long as she thought.

"Uh... I'll have..." she said, drawing out the sentence as long as she could.

"The... mint chocolate ch- no, wait, the cookies and cream!"

Sandra had just about blurted the second half of that sentence. It was probably a huge show of willpower that the guy behind the counter didn't such any reaction.

"One cookies and cream, then, coming up," he replied, before getting it all ready.

Sandra, meanwhile, had adopted a bit of a sheepish pose while she waited.

"Here you are," the guy said, handing her the cone.

Sandra laid the money in her hand onto the counter—exact change—before taking the cone.

Well, on the plus side, no one heard that awkward exchange that knew who she was, at least.

She turned, her eyes meeting those of a familiar face.

Crap.

"Oh, hey, uh... Cr... um, Cristo, right?"

He'd called her Sandy. Which, um, well, it wasn't wrong, technically, she guessed? But it was a weird pet name that almost nobody used. Well, used seriously, anyway.

"Well, it's Sandra, actually. But, uh, close enough, I guess?"

And cue awkward silence. Sandra didn't really have anything to follow that up with. What could you talk about with someone who you only kinda sorta know, without talking about the weather? This isn't a water cooler... though...

Sandra took a quick glance behind her. Ice cream shop was kind of like a water cooler, right? You know, except minus water, also plus ice cream... yeah, maybe not.

"What brings you here?"

Eh... good enough.

"Oh, me?" she said, before taking some ice cream into her mouth, "I'm here with my family too, but mini golf is for casuals so I didn't join 'em."

Her free hand pointed in the direction of the driving range.

"Besides, the driving range is better for practicing real golf, so I decided to take my time with that instead," she said emphasizing it with a shrug.

"After I'm done with this, I'll probably go through one more bucket of golf balls. But baseball huh? I'm in softball myself, but... maybe I'll drop by as well if I have time today."

She went to get another of lick her ice cream, but...

Okay, so you know sometimes when you're eating ice cream and the thing melts in such a way that the force of your tongue causes a large piece of it to shift forward, which then causes gravity to pull that large chunk of ice cream down toward the Earth until it hits the ground?

Yeah.

"...Great."

Sandra's eyes shot up toward Cristo as she processed what he'd just said.

"Huh? Well, I mean..."

Okay wait. He was offering to buy her another ice cream? On the one hand, that just didn't sit well with her. It was nobody's fault that it was hers that this happened...

But on the other hand, ice cream. Still, she didn't want to take advantage of his kindness like this.

"I mean I still..."

have some cash left, is what she was about to say, but then she did some quick math in her head. Money for ice cream meant not enough money for golf balls. And Sandra wasn't going to sit around doing nothing waiting for her family to come back.

"Uh, that is, if you don't mind? It's not a big deal for me either way."

That was a total lie. Ice cream is always a big deal.
