As he walked through the door, he glanced up and noticed purple-shirt-chickie - what was her name? Pamela? Patsy? ... PATTY!
"Uh, I'll have a Chamomile Kick," he said hesitantly. An energy kick would be nice right about now.
Jason waited a minute as the guy made his drink, then sauntered over to Patty's table.
Jason spared the guy a glance. "Hey! We had a crazy kegger party at Malan Hall last night. You missed it, man! You wouldn't believe how many chicks were streaking last night!"
Patty rolled her eyes.
"Shut up, Sarah!" Patty snapped. "Leave us alone!"
"Shut up, Sarah! Leave us alone!" Sarah mimicked.
He tipped his hand in a salute. "I'll call after class!"
Liz rolled her eyes as she pushed the button to order. "Likely excuse!" she teased.
"Good thing this isn't a date!" Jason laughed. "I'd like the double-meat, bacon-burger!" he told her eagerly.
Jason swiped at his cheek with the back of his hand.
She rolled her eyes. "You're missing it. It's right..." she reached out and wiped the mustard off with her thumb. "There!"
Liz wiped her finger off on her napkin. "In your dreams, buddy," she scoffed.
"How'd you know?" Jason asked with mock horror. "It was supposed to be a secret!" He laughed when he got a face full of french fries. Picking one up from his plate, he plopped it in his mouth. "Thanks for the extra fries!"
"What? And get expelled for being caught cheating. No, thank you!" Liz said without even looking up.
"Great, so your math will be so bad, you won't be able to figure out why all your money is missing."
"Hey!" he cried in mock affront, "It'll be easy enough to add after I round to the nearest million!"
Liz glanced up and cracked a smile. "Yeah, Zero."
"Hardy-har-har," Jason said, crossing his arms.
Liz blew out a breath. "I said, study!" she snapped sharply. The way Jason was yapping, she wasn't going to get any studying down at all!
Geez, Jason thought, pulling out his phone and pulling up the online article on weight-lifting. Grumbling, he began scrolling through it, soon forgetting why he'd been upset in the first place.
