Emily runs up to Lauren, who is idling around a hallway inside of The Montague Bartholomew’s Institute of Higher Education.
“I am beginning to learn Latin in my linguistics class.” Emily says with joy. She was having a difficult time choosing between either their French, or Latin class.
She had been fascinated by various languages through out the world. Having only known English her entire life, she was determined to become fluent in at least one other language, with hopes of being able to speak several other ones as well.
“Oh yeah?” Lauren said with a smile. “I’m studying a new language too!”
“Really?” Emily was surprised by Lauren's response. She never thought Lauren would be interested in learning a new language. “Which one?” She asked.
Emily’s cheery anticipation dropped as she looked at Lauren with dead eyes and a frumpy expression on her face.
