"Tell me, India, did you actually want me coming along for the trip?" Harry questioned Indie as they walked to the library for the study date Indie had suggested to get River off her back about studying. "I don't know if it's because of River but if you don't want me with you then I don't need to stay."

"No, no," she shook her head in argument. "I want you to stay, unless you don't want to. If that's the case, then I'll be just fine on my own."

"I'll stay then," he chuckled. "So, tell me, what are we studying for? I didn't think there was much to study for in an art degree. It's more just assignments then anything, isn't it?"

"Sure," she nodded. "I do, however, minor in psychology and I have an exam on Friday."

"A psych minor, huh?" He looked her over. "Wouldn't take you for someone interest in the human mind."

"Why's that?" She laughed as she yanked the door open to the library open and held it for him to come in after her. "Tina thinks it's funny that I'm so interested in the crazies but I just think they have the most creative minds. You'd be surprised the pieces I've come up with because of these classes and the cases we've gone over. Pretty intense if you ask me."

"Sounds intense," he admitted and followed her over to the table, taking a seat with her. He pulled out his computer and sat it down, popping open the lid to his laptop. "Well, don't let me disturb you."

"Disturb me?" She asked and pulled her notebook out of her bag, flipping open to the scribbled out words and settled her elbows on the table. "Harry, I literally cannot focus if you don't talk to me. I've never been able to just sit still and trust me, I've tried."

"You're never going to get anything done," he laughed.

"You'd be surprised. Multi-tasking is one of my many talents," she assured him. "Can I ask you something?"

"Depends," he hummed. "What's the question?"

"If I were to ask you why you kissed me," she dragged out the questioned and then her words stumbled. She held her lips tight, deciding to back track where she was heading. "Never mind. Just forget I brought everything up."

"If you were to ask me why I kissed you," he copied. "I'd tell you, I kissed you because you're a beautiful girl and I wanted to kiss you. Is that a satisfactory answer?"

"That depends," she hummed and twisted in the chair. "Is that the truth or you just saying that because I brought it up and you don't want to sound like a dick with some lame excuse for why?"

"River wasn't kidding when he said you ramble a lot, was he?" Harry chuckled. "I'm not lying to you, India. I generally think you're beautiful and I have no will power when it comes to gorgeous women."

"So, you're saying that you can't control yourself around me?" She hummed happily as she leaned forward and smirked, suddenly enjoying his company. "I kind of like that."

"I had a feeling you would," he laughed with her. "Alright, you're getting off track. Start working again, India or you'll fail your exam on Friday."

"Okay, I need to get comfortable," she told Harry and stood up. "Come with me?" She asked and hopped up from the chair. Indie offered her hand to him which he stared at for a second before shutting the lid of her computer and following her lead by getting up, collecting his papers. He allowed her to lead him towards her favorite study spot. She hadn't shown anyone it and for some reason, she found herself comfortable bring Harry to it. It was the only spot she had managed to find, where she was able to study completely on her own without finding herself wandering outside that zone.
