Sol

Oh! Yeah... I guess that’d be okay! It’s late, after all, so you’re probably… Umm...

Sol

You... Said your name is Astra, right? Astra, are you okay?

Astra

*sigh*... I don't know...

Astra

Damn it, why now? I can't do this... Look, I - It's not that I don't want to meet you or anything, I just...

Astra

Can I have a bit of time to myself?

Sol

Err... Yeah. Yeah, totally. It sounds like you're going through something really rough right now. And... That really sucks, man. I'm sorry.

Sol

It actually seems like we've both had pretty bad days. So much confusion... I don't even know how I feel about it anymore...

Astra

...You too?

Sol

I know it sounds weird. And... I also know that you'd probably prefer some peace and quiet right now. I'll go if you really want me to. But... I dunno. I feel like it'd really help both of us to sit together for a bit. Even if it's just in total silence. Even though I've been surrounded by new people all day, I... I feel really alone.

Astra

Astra

What was it father used to say? Misery loves company as much as Chrysanthemums love the light? *sigh*... What a dumb saying...

Astra

Alright. Take a seat, Sol.
