“What’s new in the world of law?”
“I don’t have serious cases yet...” He seemed a little confused and changed the subject pretty fast. “Where is you roommate Tracy?”
“She's in classes. We take the same classes. She is there right now and and I... well, I’ll catch up later.” She gave him an apologetic smile. Coffee was ready, so she poured him a cup and set against him, opening the juice.
“So, what are you studying?”
“PR.” Charlie took a sip straight from the pack. “Advertising. Everything - we have a lot of different subjects.”
Charlie put on a serious face. Nigel tried his coffee and, not saying a word, politely put it back on the same place. Maybe for a moment, he frowned, but Charlotte was too busy staring at her juice to notice.
“You were right. It really helps.” She said. “I feel so much better!”
Nigel smiled and glanced at his watch.

Although... that jerk Nick was gonna be there. She could bring somebody too... only Nigel, probably wasn’t into this kind of music. That’s because he was serious and that’s much more cool. Charlie put books aside and opened her laptop. Studying was boring... The phone rang and Charlie picked up immediately. Who could call her using the landline phone in twenty first century?!
“Hello,” she said sluggishly.
“Charlotte?” A voice asked.
“This is Nigel.”
