Walking through the city wasn’t Jeffrey’s idea of a good time; there were too many people, too many noises, and the overwhelming anxiety that he was going to get lost. He was from a city, of course, but it was nothing compared to New York. He felt a little homesick, at times. Indiana seemed so simple in comparison. But especially when he knew he would be spending his birthday by himself. He was sure his friends would talk him into going out and doing something, but it just wasn’t the same. He had always tended to lean too much on his family, and though he and his sister constantly competed and argued with one another, he missed her the most. Most of the time, it didn’t bother him, he was pretty used to being away, but this was the first year they hadn’t used some form of creative scheduling to make it work so that they could somehow, even if they were on facetime, celebrate together.

Jeffrey had found the music store entirely by accident; he wasn’t super into music (he liked it, sure, but it wasn’t a passion of his), and didn’t typically go into music stores, or even actually buy albums. He’d happened upon the store while he was trying to find a gift for his sister, though the moment he stepped through the doors, he knew he was in way over his head. He’d never heard of even a fraction of the bands he saw on the shelves, and didn’t have a clue where to begin.

He slowly walked through the store, feeling lost and useless for a good thirty minutes before he decided he should ask for help. Did he even know what kind of music his sister was into? He couldn’t ask her, that would be weird. They didn’t even actually text one another, the most communication they regularly had was sending the occasional meme. He tried to think of her general vibe, anything that might help, but ultimately he knew that she just liked her music loud and obnoxious.

With a smile, he walked up to the counter, “Hi, you work here, right?” Stupid question, don’t dwell on it, “I’m looking for something for my sister, our birthday is coming up, and I can’t be there this year. I’m still not really used to not celebrating with her, so it just feels weird knowing that I won’t be there.” He paused, realizing he was oversharing, and attempted to reign his story in, “She just likes music a lot, and I am not an expert. At all. But I thought that maybe getting her something she doesn't already have would be really cool.” He briefly laughed at himself, and shrugged, “Could you help me?” He smiled at her; he was going for charming, but it was perhaps coming off as desperate. “I would really appreciate it.”

Growing up in New York wasn’t the greatest, but it’s all Evelina has ever known. The bustling streets, the stop and go traffic, the constant motion of the city and everything in it. But with something constantly in motion, there would be struggles, and that was the main theme of Eve’s life. Though through the years she's learned to get through it or just ignore it until whatever is causing her issues is gone or no longer her problem.

One of the few things that New York gave Eve to enjoy was her job at ALLternative Sounds, bit of an underground music store, but still had a small corner for mainstream music. When she entered she quickly put on the only thing that was mandatory at her job, a name tag. Unfortunately since all her paperwork had her actual name on it, so did this name tag, Lida. Though it was an easy fix as Eve just crossed it out and put her middle name on it, the name she goes by everywhere else except around family.

Today was a normal day at her job, mostly just stocking new stuff that came out over the weekend and of course reorganizing albums that some kids would come in and always put things in the wrong spot. She worked with a small team of two other people as the store wasn't too big for them to run, and the boss man was usually upstairs doing manager things, Evelina didn't really care what he did as long as she got paid at the end of the week. She was putting some new CD's on display in the window when the door dinged and as someone walked in. Though it looked like he went to college, he looked more like eh listened to pop music or whatever else they are playing on the main radio stations. Eve ignored him as he walked around and went back behind the counter to make sure everything was good.

Eve had her back to the counter when someone asked if she worked here. I'm behind the counter, what do you think. she thought to herself, but knew she couldn't say that out loud. "Yeah, I do. What you need?" She said as she turned around, a little surprised to see the man that entered a long bit ago, assumed he had left. She barely listened to him as she took a more detailed look over him, and Eve would be lying if she said he didn't at least look cute. From what she did hear he was looking for something for his sister for a gift. "Sure, just follow me." She said as she walked from behind the counter and lead him to some of the aisles.

"So, what does she like? Know any similar artists or genres I can work with?" Eve asked, as she flipped through some CD's. "Also I think I heard you say 'our'? You two twins or something?" She tried making some small talk as she searched, the two looked down some more aisles and then she figured out what she would like after he gave some more information. "Oh wait!" She quickly turned a corner and dug deep behind some CD's looking for what came to her mind.

"Here. New up and coming band, originally based locally." Eve smiled to herself, handing him a CD from the band Beautiful Strangers. "They have some unique sounds, pretty new, I doubt she has it. She should like it though." She said as she grabbed another CD. "And here's Sophie's Valentine. Personal favorite to be honest."

Jeffrey nodded when the woman- Evelina- said she’d help him, and told him to follow her. He wondered if she got stuck with an old nametag, or if she just wasn’t the biggest fan of her name, but ultimately he knew it didn’t really matter. He was here to get a gift for his sister, and she’d forget all about him once he left. She was pretty, though, and had a unique style about her, too. Jeff liked that, honestly.

She asked him what kind of music he liked, and Jeffrey sighed to himself before answering, “If I’m being honest, I’m not totally sure. She likes loud music, with singers that wear tight pants.” the fact that that was the only thing he’d ever really noticed about her music was, perhaps, not the best review of him as a brother, but it was true enough. She asked him about him and his sister being twins, and he talked as they went looking through the shelves, “Yeah, we’re twins. We were always together growing up, but I guess that’s normal.” The chuckled to himself, almost nervously, “She’s always been cooler than I am, though.” Yeah, that was exactly the sort of thing you tell a pretty girl, that you’re not cool.

He tried to remember some of the bands or songs he knew she liked, and offered them when they came to him. Jeff offered a polite smile when Eve handed him some cds she thought his sister would like. He turned them over, checking out the cases for a second. He really didn’t know what made for good music, but they looked like bands she might like, so he figured they would be good picks. She pointed out that one was a favorite of hers, and he smiled at that, “Thank you,” He cleared his throat, “I mean, I know it’s your job, but still. I was a little hopeless.”

He followed her back to the counter, so he could check out, and he couldn’t help but want to say something to Evelina. He knew this was where she worked, and he didn’t want to be creepy, but he just kind of liked her. It could go horribly wrong, but worst case scenario, he never had to come back to this particular music store. New York was a big city, so his chances of running into her and seeing her wherever he went were probably pretty low. “I, um,” Keep it cool, Jeffrey, “I really like your hair.” Come on, you can’t think of anything better than that? This girl probably gets that constantly: she’s a cute girl with cool hair, working in a cool music store. “I just mean that, you know, you’ve got this cool and unique vibe going on, and you-” He stopped, and all but laughed at himself, “I’m sorry, that was weird.” He made a mental note that he was bad at flirting, “You’re just very pretty, and I’m a little awkward.”

He paused, realization dawning on his face, “Oh, I know you’re at work, I’m not… I mean I know that you’re being nice because you have to I just…” He shook his head, “Sorry. Thanks for your help.”

“No problemo.” Evelina said as she started heading to the counter to ring him up, walking ahead of him in case he saw anything and so he wouldn’t have to wait. As she grabbed the things to scan she noticed him staring at her, but not like the usual creeps would, more than just checking out her body. He handed her his debit card and she held it in her hand for a second before swiping it. Jeffrey Brooks… hmm. She thought to herself before the boy, Jeffrey said some that caught her attention. “Huh?”

Eve smiled a bit when he stuttered and said he liked her hair, a comment she got often. Though as he continued she giggled a bit to herself as it was cute. Not just what he was saying, but how he was saying it. Most guys that came in here would throw out some dumb pick-up line or pretend to be all into the music she liked, but this Jeffrey guy seemed genuine and honest. Plus the normal creep would try to impress her, he already called himself not cool, so she knew that wouldn’t be happening.

Evelina accidently let out a laugh as he called himself awkward, and covering her mouth. “No, sorry. I don’t mean to laugh at you. Just…” A smile crept across her face as she stared down at the counter. “Thanks, and I appreciate the kind words Jeffrey, you ain’t so bad yourself.” She said as she swiped his card and finished up the transaction, and bagged up the CDs for him. “There’s also download codes for the music on the receipt right here.” Even said as she grabbed a pen and wrote on the receipt.

Eve smiled as she handed him the receipt. “Have a nice day.” She said with a smile. “And we close in an hour in case you wondered.” She continued with a wink, before she turned back and went through a couple of drawers, finally letting her cheeks get red as she was trying not to blush when he was talking to her. Evelina shook her head a bit thinking about what she did with the receipt. There weren’t download codes for the CDs, she just wrote her phone number and circled it, plus telling him when they would be closing on the off chance he would message her. But Eve had no idea if he would even notice her phone number on the receipt or pick up ont he hints she was saying.

It wasn’t often Evelina gave her number out to people, let alone guys who try to hit on her at work as she always thought it was annoying, but Jeffrey seemed really nice and with how he was trying to find a gift for his sister showed how sweet he was. Plus him getting awkward with trying to flirt was cute.

She laughed at him, which would have been more devastating if not for the fact that Jeffrey knew his attempt at flirting was pathetic. She apologised for laughing, and complimented him, herself, but Jeffrey just shook it off. She was probably just trying to be nice. At this point, he honestly just wanted to move on, maybe get something to eat. He never flirted with people, and this was why, he tended to get frazzled and make himself look stupid.

Evelina mentioned that there was a download code for the music. Jeff didn’t really buy cds, he did most of his music listening through streaming services, so that struck him as a little odd, but as it had literally been years since he’d bought a physical copy of an album, but his sister had mentioned that amazon gave you a digital copy of music you purchased, so a part of him just figured that it had become a common practice now. But then she said the place closed in an hour. Which was weird. Then the thought occurred to him that she probably just wanted him to leave so she could start cleaning up or whatever she had to do. So he smiled, thanked her again, and then he left.

As he walked away, he started to run over the interaction in his head. It felt a little weird, he’d probably made her uncomfortable, which wasn’t his intention. He decided to stop kicking himself over the whole thing: he couldn’t change the past. He’d have to ask his sister or one of his female friends for an opinion on how that had gone later. He was actually sitting on the subway when he got curious about the download codes for the music. He figured that maybe he could give them to his sister. She might like to have a digital copy in case anything happened to the cds. He fished out the receipt to look at it, and it took him a moment to understand what he was looking at. Not a download code, a phone number. Wait, he thought, working out what that meant at all but a snail’s pace. She’d been flirting with him. He spent longer than he would like to admit trying to decide what to do, but eventually (after consulting his roommate), he settled on the idea that she gave him his number because she wanted him to contact her in some way. He decided on a text message.

Music Store Girl
Hey, it’s Jeffrey. The awkward nerd from the music store.


He sent the message just like that, but he quickly realized what a terrible opening that was, and quickly sent another message.

Music Store Girl
If you haven’t eaten yet, we could grab a bite to eat? If you’re interested?
:)


He had deleted and re-typed the smiley face a total of four times before he decided to leave it in and send the message and a part of him felt like he was being presumptuous, but she had told him the store was closing soon, so that had to mean something.

After a little back-and-forth, it was set, and Jeff was going to meet her outside the store. It was a little after closing time when he’d managed to make it back to the store, and he hoped that he hadn’t made her wait too long, and that she understood that getting around in the city wasn’t always the easiest thing to accomplish. When he saw Eve, he smiled, hoped his nerves weren’t too obvious, and said, “Hey!” He paused for a moment before continuing on, “Thanks for,” What was he even thanking her for? Giving him her number? Agreeing to go out with him? That was weird. So instead of finishing that thought, he cleared his throat and half-gestured for her to lead the way, “What kind of food do you like?” Personally, moving to New York had opened Jeff up to an entirely different world of foods, and he still ran into things he’d never tried before on occasion. He didn’t like it all, but he was always willing to try something new, so he figured that they would probably just go with whatever it was Evelina liked.

The rest of Evelina’s shift went by slowly for only having an hour left before she would get off and go home. She kept her phone on the counter and peaked occasionally whenever she would get a notification, not wanting to admit it but hoping the boy from earlier would message her, though she probably scared him away. Eve eventually put her phone in her back pocket and out of view so she could focus more on work, though there wasn’t much exactly to focus on, only some woman who came in about five minutes before closing.

Usually someone coming in at the last minute before closing would annoy Eve, but she didn’t feel like trying to argue with the woman, already seeing she was the type that would make a big scene about how they should stay open for the customer. Instead Eve just got started on her closing checklist, the few things she could do while the woman walked around aimlessly, thought it was mostly just cleaning up her many, many sticky notes she would leave around for herself.

As the woman finally left without buying anything, Evelina’s phone buzzed. “Who the fuck is messaging me...?” She asked out loud, a bit annoyed the woman who just left. She didn’t mind that she came in so late, but coming in late and not buying anything and wasting Evelina’s time, that she did mind. When Eve took her phone out of her pocket, it was a number she didn’t recognize and was confused at first, but then remembering she gave her number out, as well as the message saying who it was, a light smile came over her face. She was about to reply when she noticed him typing another message and was curious what he was going to say and waited. It was a long minute before the short message asking if she wanted something to eat. Evelina quickly saved his number in her phone before replying.

AwkwardCuteGuyJeffrey
ello! i skipped lunch today so am hungry :3 should b off work soon


Eve quickly replied, as well as continuing the conversation a bit for until she had to really focus on finishing on closing the store. Most stores in New York stayed open pretty late, but where she worked they closed early on Wednesdays, just to give them all a little bit of recreational time. Though if it was up for Evelina she would work later so she would make more money.

After cleaning up and getting everything done for closing, Evelina clocked out and grabbed her jacket as she walked outside, sending Jeffrey a message saying she was off, and she had to wait a bit for him to show up. It wasn’t long until he arrived, saying hi and thanks, “Hey there!” She replied, before he asked what type of food she liked. “I’m probably the most in love with doner and kebabs.” She said as the two of the began walking, and keeping a little bit of conversation between the two.

When the two of them were two blocks away Evelina remembered something, something that she was supposed to do after work, but got distracted with Jeffrey. “Fuck…” She signed out, Jeffrey quickly asking what. “I was supposed to cash my check from work, and the bank I use is on the other side of town. Won’t be able to get doner. Ugh” Eve said as she leaned against a wall and letting out a breath. Though Jeffrey spoke up and quickly offered to pay, and usually Evelina would decline the offer, she hated when she had to have people pay stuff for her. It made her feel like she owed them or like she was less than them, a feeling she already had to battle every day with other people. But she was hungry and were almost there, so she just agreed. “Fine. But only this time. I don’t like owing people.”

Evelina said what kind of food she liked, and Jeffrey just nodded, “Well, then that’s what we’ll have.” As they walked and talked, Jeff noticed how easy it seemed to be to talk to her. He often felt like he had trouble holding conversations with people, especially right after meeting them. He didn’t know if this was what people meant when they talked about meeting someone and having a connection that “clicks,” or if Evelina was just particularly patient and good at conversation. Either way, he didn’t mind it.

They’d been walking for a while when she stopped. By her word choice, Jeff guessed something was wrong, so he asked, “What’s wrong?” Her explanation brought two possibilities to mind. She hadn’t cashed her check and was genuinely short on cash, or she had changed her mind and was trying to come up with an excuse to get out of going to dinner with him. If he were being honest, he could accept either one, but he did want to know which was the case.

“I’ll pay for yours.” He didn’t even have to think about offering to pay, of course he would. When she agreed, he smiled, and quickly shook his head when she said she didn’t like owing people, “Don’t worry about it. I asked you, I’ll pick up the check. You won’t owe me anything.”

It wasn’t much longer before they got to the place Eve recommended. Jeffrey didn’t know what to order, so he just went with whatever she suggested.

“So, um,” Jeff didn’t want things to suddenly get awkward, so he felt the need to keep the conversation moving, “What do you like to do? Like. For fun.” The thought that she had known what he meant before he clarified crossed his mind. Because, of course she knew. He felt like he looked like a kid on his first date. His roommate and friends had been telling him he needed to get out there more, but if he were being honest, he didn’t give himself a whole lot of time to do so. He spent a lot of his free time studying, which, if he were being honest, was probably what he should have been doing. Typically, when he wasn’t studying, he was just doing whatever his roommate felt like doing. That was potentially dangerous, but she wasn’t all that bad.

The two of them continued as Jeffrey said Eve wouldn’t owe him anything. She rolled her eyes a bit, people always said that and then later on use helping her against her to get what they wanted. But atleast right now Jeffrey seemed like a pretty nice thing, and even if he did try to make her owe him, doner wasn’t all that expensive, especially the place she would frequent on late nights.

By the time the two of them arrived at the doner place. It wasn’t an actual restaurant where people could walk in and take a seat, it was mostly just a window in a wall with about five or six tables out front where people could eat. They would call your number shortly after you ordered and you’d have to go up and get it. It was simple and it allowed Eveline to not have to interact with so many people. Though she would visit this place often enough well she got to know the cooks behind the window so they would occasionally bring her food to her if she wasn’t paying attention or browsing through her phone.

“I’ll just have a doner box, white and red sauce.” Eve said resting her crossed arms on the counter and looking over at Jeffrey. She suggested what she got, saying it was kebab meat ontop of fries with yogurt sauce on it, he shrugged and said he would have it. The man quickly took Jeffrey’s payment and looked over at Eveline “Erkek arkadaş Lida?” He asked. She just rolled her eyes at him and led Jeffrey to a table. “Shut it Omer.” She said as the two of them sat down.

The two of them sat down and Jeffrey quickly started making small talk, asking about what she likes to do, causing her to blush a bit when he was being cute again with being awkward. “Well Jeffrey, I- Can I call you Jeff?” She interrupted herself speaking, and Jeff nodding that she could. “Well Jeff. When I’m not working two jobs and trying to deal with my family, I tend to be mostly buried in music or drawing in my sketch book.” Pulling out her sketch book of her bag and placing it on the table and sliding it over to Jeff, not sure if he would actually open it or not.. It was black and said LIDA across the top of it , but that also looked scribbled out like her name tag and just said eves dont open. “It’s not that great, but it’s something I do since I don’t tend to hang out with others often.”

Evelina stopped talking as one of the cooks brought out their food. “Two doner boxes, one for the gentleman, and one for little Lida.” The man said in a heavy turkish accent, which caused Eve to roll her eyes. Jeffrey said thanks as the man walked away, but he turned and asked about the Lida thing, and also pointing at her name tag that she forgot to take off and referencing the sketc hbook. She gasped a bit and turned a bit red, embarrassed about still wearing her name tag and quickly unpinning it and putting it in her bag. “Sorry. My real name is Lida, but Evelina is my middle name and I go mostly by the in recent years.” She said before stabbing a fork into the box and taking a few bites. After swallowing and taking a sip of her fanta, she looked back at Jeff. “Enough about me. I’ve been mostly talking. Your turn.” Evelina said with a smile, a little bit of wicked behind it. She knew she was putting him on the spot, but found his little mannerisms cute.

Jeffrey couldn’t help but smile at the way the people who worked at the place were acting. He figured Eve must come here pretty often for them to be so familiar with her.

When she asked if she could call him Jeff, he nodded, and she went on talking before he could even get the words “yeah, everyone does” out of his mouth. He was a little surprised that she was letting him see her sketchbook just like that. She either didn’t mind who saw her art, or he was just used to particularly shy artists. He looked at the cover for a minute, a little conflicted at the eves don’t open directive; but he figured that since she handed it to him, she likely didn’t mind if he flipped through it. “I like your drawings… Or, uh, art?” He never knew how to properly refer to the things creative people made. It was always either “these aren’t drawings, Jeff,” or “man, these are just doodles,” but the truth was that he loved seeing the things other people made. He wasn’t the most creative person out there, so it blew him away to see how people could do things like that.

When a man brought out their food, he handed the sketchbook back to Eve. There was a little more teasing about them being on a date, but Jeff just smiled and thanked the man before he walked away. Then he turned to Eve, “Not to pry, but I’m a little curious about the whole Lida thing. You know, these guys are calling you Lida, it was on your sketchbook,” He pointed out the name tag still pinned to her shirt, “And the name tag.” He looked at his food, trying to decide on the best first bite to try as Eve removed her name tag and put it away. He nodded at her explanation, “No, don’t apologise. I was just curious.” He thought Lida was a nice name, but she didn’t seem to like it, so he didn’t say anything. She’d probably think he was just trying to be nice, anyway.

When Eve asked Jeffrey about himself, a look of panic crossed his face for a split second. How was he supposed to talk about himself without making himself look like the most boring person on the planet? In the end, he figured that there was no use trying to act like he was more exciting than he really was. “I, uh, I’m in college right now. Studying physics. So I spend most of my free time studying. I don’t mind it though, I like math and science. And all that... Stuff.” He shrugged, “Though, I really love stargazing. Back home, I used to make star charts. You know, map them out and everything.” He gestured up towards the sky, “New York’s not always the best for that, though.” He smiled, “My grandparents live way out in the middle of nowhere, back in Indiana, the stars are so beautiful there. I fell in love with space then. I used to want to be an astronaut, but,” He paused to laugh, “Now I think that’s a little unrealistic.”

He cleared his throat, he’d talked too much about space. “I like bikes, too. Always wear a helmet.” That was worse, somehow. He quickly took a bite of his food as a way to force himself to shut up. When he finished the food in his mouth, he said, “I like this,” Pointing down to the remainder of his food, “Good choice.”

Evelina giggled a bit as she saw Jeffrey’s facial reaction to being asked about himself, even though it wasn’t there long before he began to talk. She listened to him talk, one elbow on the table with her hand holding up her head while her other hand scooped up some foot. Eve turned her head a bit when he spoke about math and physics. A bit surprised, but that was mostly due to her not being exactly good, or even average, in math, and never even touching physics.

But what Jeffrey spoke about next did make her a bit jealous. Star gazing. It was only something she had only heard about online or in TV shows. With the light pollution in the city, it was hard to see stars at night, and Evelina never had the time, money, or transportation to head out of the city to see actual stars. So hearing Jeff talk about these things actually intrigued her, putting her fork down and staring at Jeffrey. Eve nodded when he said New York wasn’t the best place to stargaze, and talking about going over to Indiana. She also found it a bit cool that he wanted to be an astronaut. But letting out a bit of a giggle with his bike comment and saying to wear a helmet.

“An astronaut? That’d be pretty cool. I’ve never really thought of big goals like that. Like, I guess I wanted to be a teacher at some point, but got caught up with family things and just working a lot I sort of lost sight of that, you know?” Evelina glanced around, picking back up her fork and poking at her food. “Glad you like the food, as I said, one of my favorite places to go.” She continued, finishing her food and taking a sip of her coke.

One of the workers came by and grabbed their empty food containers, Evelina thanking them. “Hey, don’t laugh at me. But I’ve never really seen the stars. Like, I’ve seen some but nothing like you talked about…” She trailed off. “Never really had the -” Eve stopped herself, almost admitting not any money to do anything… “Time you know? To head out of the city, something I haven't actually done before. Star gazing would be cool to do one day...” Eve trailed off again, grabbing her notebook and putting it into her bag.

As Eve spoke, Jeffrey realized that he’d never even had to think about giving up his dreams, there was always enough money that he could at least entertain it all. Sure, his life wasn’t perfect, but he could afford to follow his dreams. He’d never thought about the fact that not everyone could.

But when Evelina said she’d never seen the stars, he felt a little sad for her. It wasn’t as if seeing the stars were necessary for a happy life, but he loved them so much, and he couldn’t imagine not being able to see them clearly. There were a few places in New York for stargazing, but they were only any good at certain times of the year, and they all still suffered from being in one of the biggest cities in the world. He understood never really seeing the stars if someone had lived in the city their entire life. Hell, most people who lived somewhere they could clearly see the stars didn’t ever pay them much attention.

Jeffrey wasn’t normally particularly impulsive, but he’d already asked out and gone to dinner with a pretty girl the day he met her, and there she was, wistfully talking about seeing the stars. What was one more impulsive decision? He pulled out his phone to check the time, if they left right away, they could probably catch the next train out of the city. “Would you like to go right now?” He stood up and shrugged, struggling to keep up the level of confidence he’d just asked with, “We can catch the train if we hurry.” He remembered then that she’d forgotten about her paycheck, and she might object because she wouldn’t want him to pay for her, “The weather’s nice, and it’s not too cloudy, it’ll be perfect.” He smiled, “So long as you’re comfortable with it, I’d love to go stargazing with you. I could probably point out some constellations for you.”

There was always the chance she might think he was a serial killer or something, so he wouldn’t blame her if she said no because she didn’t feel safe, but otherwise he really did think he might have to insist.

Evelina was staring off the side watching some people walk by, a bit of people watching while taking a sip of her drink. She turned her head back was Jeffrey asked her a question, a bit of a spontaneous one that caught her off guard. “Like, right now, right now?” She asked before he said if they could still catch a train if they hurried. Eve wasn't exactly sure what to say, the little date was going well so far, but to go outside the city with someone she just met, so late, and one the first date. She'd be lying if she said she wasn't a tad bit cautious or thrown off by the question.

Jeffrey continued talking about the stars, that he could possibly show her some constellations. Eve was thinking of saying now, but when he asked if she was comfortable with it, she felt a bit more at ease. “You know, fuck it. Let’s go. But if you do end up being a serially killer, I better end up in the documentary about you.” She said with a wicked smirk as she grabbed her things and stood up. “Oh, and you aren’t buying my train ticket. You can pay for yours, but I know the way around the subway to get away with paying for tickets.” Evelina had taken the train more times without paying than times when she did paid, it was easy enough to jump a turn-tile and quickly outrun the glorified security they had in the booths. "I'm assuming its the U-Line that heads out of the city? Pretty sure there's an entrance around the corner." She continued as she started to head the entrance.

Evelina was a bit worried Jeffrey would judge her and maybe not like her for doing “illegal” things like not paying for train tickets, but what type of guy didn’t like a bad girl at times. She stayed ahead of Jeff for most of the walk, slowing down once they got to the entrance and walking beside him as they went down the stairs. Eve stared at him a bit with a smile subconsciously, quickly darting away when he caught her stare. Once they got to the end of the stairs, the turn tile and payment for tickets was right around the corner. “So… you wanna head through and pay first and I’ll meet you on the other side? I promise I won’t ditch you.” Eve asked, and nodded as Jeffrey quickly bought a ticket and went through to the other side.

Eve hung back for a minute, but knew she had to hurry as the train would be approaching soon. She quickly saw her chance as a group of friends had a group ticket and was scanning through and slid between them flawlessly, giving a smile and mouthing thank you to one of the guys, tho he was probably just confused. “See, that easy.”Evelina said with a smile to Jeff, but quickly felt a tap on her shoulder and hearing a voice. “Excuse me ma’am…” Eve froze for a second before turning around and seeing a man in subway security uniform behind her, a bit more on the older side. Before he could say anything else, she quickly ran and tugged Jeff behind her. “Run! Lets go David!” She shouted, purposely using a wrong name. The two of the weaved between people and bumping into others. “Excuse me, sorry, coming through.” Eve quickly said.

She saw the train had arrived at the station a few second ago and was getting ready to leave. Luckily someone saw the two of them running and held the door for a split second just in time for the two to get inside and the doors shut behind them as the train started moving. Eve turned back and saw the security guard and stuck her tongue out at him before taking a seat, with Jeff, giggling a bit to herself. “Heheh, that was fun wasn’t it?” She said, before realizing she was still holding Jeff’s hand and quickly let go out, a bit embarrassed. “I promise no more rowdy from me, I’ll let you buy the return ticket.”
