"No, Sonata, don't you understand?! It's OVER!"
>They were arguing for sometime in the booth behind you. You couldn't help but listen when it reached a fever pitch
>A girl was sobbing when another piped up
"Why do you always have to RUIN everything! We were right there, and we lost it all!"
"B-but I-I didn't do anyth-"
"Save your breath... I don't think we can gain anything by staying together now, and we can't drag you along everywhere we go... C'mon Aria, let's get out of here."
"I thought you'd never ask."
>you hear shuffling and a few seconds later, two girls in hoodies walk past, you couldn't see their faces
"G-girls? Girls w-where are you g-going? Don't leave!..."
>They were already gone
>The girl resumed her crying
>You look over the booth seat to see someone in a matching hoodie, vibrant blue hair, and tears streaming down her face
>she doesn't notice you looking as she continues on
"They're such... *sob* big meanies... I didn't... *sob* do anything. I don't want to be... *sob* alone."
>she eventually starts making choked up calls between her hiccuping
>Was she... attempting to sing?
>If you could call it that... It sounds like a braindead monkey trying to imitate a bird call!
>She needed help, and your ears couldn't take any more of her vocal noise
>You grab your coffee cup and move up to her booth, sitting across from her
>Her sobbing was cut short as she raised her head suddenly, her face streaked with fresh tears
"H-huh? Who are you?"
Then we make a story that doesn't end in sex?
>"Uh, you can just call me Anon. What's your name?"
>She blinks as she straightens up
"Um... *sniff* S-Sonata."
>You had to admit she looked cute past the tears and ear-rape
>"Why were those girls so angry with you?"
>Sonata looked away, the question seemed to hurt
>Nice going Anon, not just breaking the ice, we're wrecking it
>"I'm sorry, I just overheard and I-"
"No, it's alright,"
>She wiped her eyes with a sleeve
"They were... old friends. We were gonna rule the world, and we messed up, and now we can't sing, and they think it's my fault, but it wasn't and I don't know why they would just leave me when we've been together for years and years and-"
>you raise your hands to stop the run on
>"Just... slow down."
>You sigh and run a hand down your face
>it was late and even the coffee stopped having an effect two days ago. Those sleepless nights studying for that test had taken their toll
>"So what you're trying to say was they were good friends that thought you're bringing them down so they cut you off?"
>she stared blankly for a moment then finally nods
>Cute, but not that bright
>Probably why they dumped her in the first place
>Your sleep-deprived brain was at a loss at what to do, so it winged it
>"Well screw them. You can rule the world without those brats!"
>You emphasize your slightly sarcastic pep talk by gesturing out the window towards the mountains with your hand
>Sonata seemed to crack a smile
"I could, yeah!"
>She stood up and pumped her fists, before the confidence drained out of her and she slumped down back in her seat
"...Except, I can't sing."
>"Well what does singing have to do with it?"
>She gives you a questioning, 'well don't you know?' kind of glance
"It's how I got people to do things for me, of course!... Before, well, we had that big Battle of the Bands..."
>So she lost her voice in a singing competition? Strange, but you could roll with it
>"Don't worry, it'll come back."
"You really think so?"
>She smiled more this time
>"Yeah, I know so. I bet you were a wonderful singer."
>Yeah, no. They dumped her because she has the voice of a dying animal for sure.
"Yeah... I was."
>You were tired. Winging it wasn't working. Caffeine, why don't you work no more?!
>You had to bail before you crashed, but you couldn't just leave her like this
>initiate emergency generators.exe
>"So, it's getting late... don't you have any place to stay?"
>Yeah, brilliant thinking brain. Ask if she wants to move in with you? Great!
>she rubbed her arm
"No, I don't."
>Of course she- Wait wat
>"What do you mean you don't? Don't you have a home? A family? Anything?"
"No. I just followed those girls everywhere."
>Well, I guess brain was working better than you thought
>good job brain
>Wait, so she was homeless all this time? What if she was one of those homeless leeches? Was that why they dumped her-
>*warning* Emergency generator fuel running low!
>---Sleep Priority Mode Engage---
>"Well, I guess, if you want a place to stay, wanna head to my place? I mean, I got a couch you could sleep o-"
>The sudden smile plastered on her face stunned you
>"...Okay then." you chuckled nervously
>"It's getting late... I guess you could follow me?"
>She enthusiastically bounced up to her feet and nodded.
>You question what in the world just happened and why a girl was following you to your apartment as you strolled out of the cafe.
>You head down the rather empty street, your apartment wasn't that far, so you didn't waste the gas to get here.
>You walk in silence for a moment. Hands in your pockets, as it was rather chilly out.
>Suddenly Sonata wraps her arm around yours and cuddles up next to you
>INITIATE BAD TOUCH PROTOCOL! ACTIVATE ADRENALINE DISPENSERS!
>"WHOA Whoa! What are you doing?!"
>You shake her off, making her retreat back
>She looks at you all confused
>This girl is all sorts of weird
>And you were bringing her to your apartment
>Why were you bringing her to your apartment?
>Oh look, you're at your apartment
>"Alright, well, just no cuddles please? I just don't like it."
>You give her an annoyed glance over your shoulder before unlocking your front door and walking in.
>"After you, I guess."
>Good thing you like to keep your place somewhat tidy
>She walks in and gives a brief look around. Nothing more than a kitchen, living room, bathroom and bedroom.
>She doesn't say anything and turns back and gives you an innocent smile
>Like she forgot about the whole incident at the cafe
>No talk, sleep now
>"Alright. I really need to get to bed, so, heres a couch you can sleep on, and here's a blanket you could use. And the bathroom's down the hall there on the right. I haven't slept in a while so don't make any noise please? Thanks."
>And with that uncurt tour concluded you headed to your bedroom, testing the lock on the door to see if it functioned properly.
>you saw her sit on the couch, across the room from your doorway, and again give you that innocent smile.
"Thanks Anon. Sleep well!"
>What is wrong with her?
>You slowly shut the door, and lock it
>Tossing off your shoes and jacket, you flop on your bed and pass out almost immediately.
>Rebooting Brain-OS, Anon Edition, please wait...
>You were floating... floating in darkness
>Some green mist started collecting at your feet, and a figure started aproaching
>Something began to echo from the figure. First it was indistinguishable, but then, noise became pitch, pitch became tone, tone became... music
>Some of the most beautiful music you've ever heard
>It chilled you to your very bone and it made you want to kneel and praise the girl blessed with that voice!
>you reached out to the singing figure, but no matter what, you couldn't touch her.
>The green mist wrapped around you and dragged you further into the abyss
>No! You needed to listen to her more!
>Two more voices began accompanying the first
>first they complimented and enhanced the increasingly distant voices, but then they became discordant and screeching
>then a flash, a whirlwind of color, and suddenly the voices were silenced
>You wake up with a gasp
>You don't know why, but your heart was pounding in your chest
>It wasn't even that bad of a dream
>You tried to remember that haunting melody but the more you thought about it the more it escaped you
>You almost choked up for a second in your delirium, never able to hear that voice again
>*limb condition sys check:... R Leg: operational - L Leg: operational - R Arm: Operational - L Arm: WARNING, WARNING, REPORTING SOMETHING WARM AND SOLID WITHIN SENSORY REACH*
>*ACTIVATE BRAIN RESPONSE: "WTF SOMETHING IS IN THE BED WITH ME.EXE!"*
>You catapult yourself out of the bed opposite of the alien intruder
>Magenta eyes, wide open and accompanied with a smile
>Oh yeah, you brought a girl into your apartment
>And she was in the bed with you
>Wait, didn't you lock the door?
>That didn't matter now though
>Cause she was already awake
>Oh good lord why was she smiling like that after she practically scared the morning wood off of you?
>"What in the world do you think you're doing?!"
>"How'd you get in here?!"
"I walked in?"
>"Why are you in by bed?!"
"Because you didn't say I couldn't... I didn't make any noise! I promise!"
>"But I... you... UGH!"
>You face palm hard
>She wasn't just a cute ditz. She was a complete idiot.
>You wonder why her hair wasn't yellow
>At least she still was in her hoodie and jeans...
>And again with that confused look
>"Just... just get out and let me get dressed please."
"Ooh! Can we get breakfast after that!"
>"Yeah, yeah... I'll see if I can make something."
>You had to agree with her for once, your stomach grumbled it's *empty tank* warning
"Can you make tacos?!"
>"Tacos... wha-... Tacos are a lunch thing!"
"But I like tacos..."
>Darn those puppydog eyes. She was an idiot, but a cute and somewhat manipulative idiot.
>Sonata bounced up and out of the bed, before practically running into the kitchen
>slamming the door behind her, you pinch the bridge of your eyebrow.
>*Brain.sys and memory.sys resume reboot, restoring previous session...*
>The previous events of last night came back to you full force, along with all the regret
>No more sleepless nights for Anon
>At least the test was done for yesterday, there won't be another for a while
>After slipping into a change of jeans, a new shirt and jacket, and finally approached the alien in your home
>She was patiently sitting on the couch, the most excited smile on her face
>You weren't going to bull around with veggies, so you grab some eggs and precooked sausage, and throw them both into a frying pan
>Scramble with cheese, and put into a tortilla. It's technically a taco, so shove it.
>After grabbing a couple plates, you hand Sonata your breakfast taco invention
>You sit on the floor across from her, and take a bite. Not that bad, actually!
>As she ravenously digs in, you sigh.
>Now you were all rested, it was time to get answers from her.

He left at 19:33 (my clock)
22:49 - 19:33 = 3h 16min
I don't think that he's working only that long.
my bet is 5,5h more at least
