At lunch Riley finds Isadora and Farkle sitting together at a table. Riley enjoys the quirky geniuses company and joins them. They both welcome her with warm smiles.
“May I sit here?” Riley asks.
“Of course, you’re always welcome here. Right, Is?” Farkle turns to his girlfriend who’s staring away giggling.
“Smack?” Riley waves her hand in front of the girls face. When there’s no change in her unusual behaviour Riley follows her line of sight and catches Lucas just as he’s was about to pounce.
“Do you make it a habit to sneak up on people?” Riley shoots him a glare.
“Just you,” Lucas smirks, “Can I talk to you for a second?”
“Sure, do you want to sit down?” Riley motions to the other spare seats at the table.
Lucas glances at the two staring geniuses, Smackle has her head resting in her palms as she gazes at him and Farkle is sporting a mild glare or jealousy.
“Uh, no,” he laughs, “Could you come over here for a second?”
Riley excuses herself and walks aside with Lucas.
