Jensen is being shown the social sciences building by the head of the psychology department. Professor Roche is a legend. He is one of the reasons Jensen accepted the job at this university.
Once they’ve made it back to Jensen’s new and mostly empty office, Sebastian, as he’s asked to be called, tells him to come with any questions he has.
“When are budget proposals due?”
“Do I have to make a presentation for this committee?”
“Where is this building at?”
“Would you like to have lunch with me?”
The last question is met with a laugh, followed by an enthusiastic ‘yes’.
Jensen smiles for the whole day after that.
