Happy that she had noticed him, without seeming angry-even better, the young man leaned on the railing of the fence, smiling brightly.
"Aha! You remembered my name! That makes me glad, Miss Elizabeth! Oh, I asked around for your name, think nothing of it. I actually work here now. I am a substitute for your biology professor, who had recently contracted the most unfortunate case of Ebola, and hence has been quarantined. Don't worry, he's receiving the most excellent medical treatment available. Won't you come and sit? According to my sources, your first class doesn't start for another half hour. Plenty of time for a good breakfast. I don't believe you've eaten yet, have you? You really should take better care of yourself, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Even if you are a Rinato, your human body still needs the nutrients you don't think you do. Otherwise you'll become a weak and flabby mush just begging to be eaten by a wandering mosquito and there won't be a thing you can do about it!" he said, attracting odd looks from the barista and other patrons, who also stared at Elizabeth, as if asking her what the man what talking about.
He didn't wait to take no for an answer, calling the barista over and ordering a meal for the girl, beckoning her over and pulling over a chair for her. He walked out of the cafe, cane on his arm, standing in front of Elizabeth with starling speed, as if he had teleported there. He held out an hand to her, his smile almost seeming mischievous.
"I hope you enjoy pancakes, personally I love them. And they're the perfect food to discus very important matters over. Specifically, matters including your ties to Chronos and the other mosquitoes and why they are following you?" he suggested.
