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

Sol

Hey, uhh… Astra? Are you okay?

Astra

Y-yeah! Yeah, I’m good, just… Well, it’s been a long day, like you said, so…

Astra

Actually… *sigh*, Dammit, why now? I can't do this... Sol, right? Look, I - It's not that I don't want to meet you or anything, I just- I mean today has been such a pain, and...

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

...Tell you what. I’ll leave. But Before I go, how about I sit with you?

Astra

Huh? Well, I- I appreciate the thought, but I really don't think-

Sol

I know it sounds weird. And... I also know that you probably would really prefer some peace and quiet. I'll go if you really want me to. But... I dunno, it just feels like the right thing to do, I guess.

Astra

...

Astra

The right thing to do, huh? *sigh*

Astra

Alright, take a seat...
