Last week, King Hadrian promised to have Iris’ schedule “corrected” so she could go out with Matty. This scene takes place the next day, and Matty is nervously walking toward front doors Libertea, downtown Aventine’s most popular tea shop, and the agreed upon meeting place.
[Matty] knew girls that spent their free time at Libertea. They walked into their first hour classes with the cafe’s logo on their cups, and all of them found him generally intolerable. With them in mind, the halves of Matty’s brain argued. One assumed that Iris might be just like his former classmates and warned him that no good would come of walking through the cafe’s door. The other side snapped back that those same snooty girls would sooner talk to him than to a gardener.
His feet ignored his brain and kept walking.
