Double Down-time | | Harvey & Kitty
“You’re welcome,” Kitty replied, pleased that she could make him happy. The conversation was going better than expected. She’d barely paid attention to the episode, although it was one she’d seen before.
Turning her attention back to Harvey, she frowned, taking a moment to think. “I’m not sure yet, maybe research? Or working for a tech firm?” she answered hesitantly. “I’ve still got a few years to figure it out, thankfully.”
“Yeah, you do. How old are you, anyway? Eighteen or nineteen?” he asked. She looked even younger than that, but she probably wasn’t.
Realizing the conversation had turned a little boring, he decided to change the subject. “So, do you know a lot of people on campus yet? I know that’s kinda hard, at first.” It wasn’t much better, but it beat sitting in awkward silence.
“I’m eighteen. Almost nineteen, in about a month,” Kitty said honestly. She was willing to be Harvey was older than her by at least a few years, but so what?
“No, I don’t,” she admitted. “That’s kinda why I made my blog - to try and connect with people. I tend to end up spending hours alone in my room coding or playing video games otherwise.” Kitty tried to be more optimistic, “So far it’s worked out okay!”, referring to their meeting. At least Harvey seemed to be equally conversation challenged.
“What about you?” she queried. “You must have a lot of friends. Are you in the Future Lawyers club, or Student Council or anything?”
