[So, the thing is, Cosima isn't a law student. She really has no business invading the law school library, not when she has a perfectly good library on the main campus. Except, it's midterm season and that means the place is crawling with stressed out undergrads, including some of her own students. And Cosima would rather not be interrupted by an overly eager freshman who hasn't grasped the finer points of punnet squares while she works on her proposal.

Earlier that week she'd discovered her office and apartment had too many distractions, she'd overstayed her welcome at the three closest coffee shops, and the med students had chased her out of the medical school library after she got into an argument about what qualified as being a "real doctor". She'd practically given up when she stumbled upon the law school library. It had decent lighting, wasn't too crowded, and was free of undergrads, making it the perfect study spot.

Cosima's noticed that she's not the only frequent visitor. She keeps watching on particular law student who never seems to leave. He's always there before her and he's always still there when she leaves. She's also not sure she's ever seen him leave to take a break or lose focus. It's both creepy and impressive.

She's 99% sure he's not a robot, but there's that 1% chance that he is. It's that 1% (and the fact that if she looks at another paper on the epigenetic impacts on stem cell development she will scream and get kicked out of her new favorite study spot) that inspires her to stop at his study table on her next coffee break. She sets down two cups of coffee and a stack of cookies wrapped in a napkin that she blatantly stole from a law seminar, hoping it's enough to lure him out of his study fog.]

You look like you could use a break, man.
