At the corner of the cafe Riley was sitting alone while typing away at his computer. On it was a video game he had beaten only minutes befoere. He had stayed up all last night playing it and he was now drinking coffee to keep himself awake. Now normal it wouldn't take him very long to beat a video game, five hour top, but he was bored so he decided to go for 100 percent completion on this game. Once it was over thought he was still bored, and now filled with coffee.
A certain blondie decided to get a drink. She opened the doors and placed one of her small feet into the place. She sadly noticed a lack of empty tables. Or seats for that matter. Sure their were some, but everyone seemed to be conversing. She did however, manage to find someone who wasn't siting with anyone. No, this guy seemed to be using some form of electronics, something Eilonwy had recently learned about. She walked up to the table.
"Excuse me sir, do you mind if I sit here?" she asked.

Riley was in the middle of starting a game of Tetris when the blond girl got to his table. “No I don’t mind” Riley said looking up over his laptop at the girl. “My names Riley by the way,” Riley said deciding to be friendly since he was bored out of his mind.

“Nice to meet you then, though you could just call me Riley. Mr. sounds too old” Riley said, not use to being called Mr. or sir. “So, enjoying the park?” Riley said as it was the first thing that came to his mind. The mixture of boredom and coffee starting to make him a little hyper but he controlled it enough for it not to be noticeable by anyone who saw him. Not yet at least.

"Bored actually, I've done most of the rides already and their doesn't seem to be much else to do," Riley said truthfully as he fiddled with his almost empty cup of coffee. "And you can only get the top score on Tetris so many times before even that gets boring" Riley added.
The Princess had agreed about the ride. Although at the mention of Tetris, she become quiet confused. "Well I'm sorry to hear that. If you don't mind my asking, what's Tetris?" she asked as she took another sip of water.

Riley felt himself about to spit his coffee out when Ellonwy asked what Tetris was. How could anyone not know what Tetris is? Thankfully he controlled that impulse and instead turned his laptop around so Ellonwy could see the screen. On it was a paused Tetris screen with a few incomplete lines and a yellow square block hanging in mid-air. “Well Tetris is a game that was created in June 1985 by Alex Pazhitnov. It’s basically a game where you move the falling shapes to make a straight line on the bottom. Once a line is completed it disappears. The goal is to get the most points by getting rid of the lines” Riley explained as he showed Ellonwy how it worked on his computer.
Eilonwy was quiet confused. And yet, at the same time, she was also amused. And she had perfectly understood exactly how to play. She looked at the laptop screen tilting her head. To her this game seemed to be a wast of time. Of course she wouldn't say anything. It would've be very rude. Although it had seemed that she had found someone who talked as much as she did. "Well it seems very interesting," Eilonwy said with a halfhearted smile.
