“Not now Kevin, I'm busy” Carlos had just gone into hyper-focus mode when Kevin came in. Carlos sighed, attention diverted and focus no longer on his work. “What do you need Kevin?”
“I just wanted to say how /proud/ I am that you are working so hard. However, you haven't eaten all day, and starving yourself is not as productive as you'd think. Would you consider having dinner with me?” Carlos thought for a minute. Kevin was right, he /hadn't/ eaten all day.
“Oh delightful! I have gotten things ready ahead of time, so we can go as soon as you're ready” Carlos smiled. It was good to have a friend to watch over him while her was in the otherworld.
Kevin smiled, this time genuinely. Carlos had ust accepted his date. 'Now I won't be so lonely anymore!' he thought to himself as he led Carlos to the picnic spot.
