Last week, Matty met Iris and helped her plant trees. Its a few weeks later and he’s working on a way to “accidentally” bump into her. Being the geek he is, the method involves writing a computer script. In this scene, he’s spent the night in Hadrian’s library. At some early hour, Hadrian comes in to talk to him.
“Morning, Hadrian,” [Matty] said without looking up from his code.
“Barely,” the king yawned. “Your parents called late, worried about you.”
“Sorry.” Matty’s apology was absorbed into a yawn of his own.
Hadrian replied, “I told them that a meteorite fell on the library and offered my condolences.”
