"Mere...what should we do with Quinn?" Stephen ask.
"I don't know yet." Mere replies. "She doesn't seem into her studies like our other kids."
"I know. Maybe we should hire a tutor or something."
"Tutors are kinda expensive."
Stephen let a sigh before drinking his milk. When dinner is ready, Quinn have dinner with her parents. Its now has been two weeks since Ben saw Quinn. It is kinda expected. He thought that he might scare her off or something. Anyway, Ben is hanging out with Dylan in their flat. Both of them are currently watch some tv in their boxer shorts and tshirts.

"Why?" Ben ask.
"I know you want some."
"Are you still thinking that Quinn girl?"
"Stop lying. You told me you had a very bad breakup with your boyfriend back in Scotland."
"That is why we need to go out."
"Fine, but can we go to Leicester Square first, Dylan?"
