That is what I meant too.

Isn't there a very small chance I will have a good experience?

20% chance you will not see her that is something...

I am just frustrated that, due to asking out C, I consequently cannot speak to IY.

Maybe you should stop her and ask her what is wrong?

Yes but what if that backfires?

It has already backfired. Can it get worse?

What do I say to IY? What do I do if when I am doing that C walks into the room and sits next to IY?

You could ask her if you have done something to offend her.

Make sure C is not around.

Hmm, I could ask that...

What if I just asked her how she was and pretended nothing happened?

Yea, try that. Worst that can happen is she walks away.

I have shopping to do, see you later.

Okay, I will see if I can try it tomorrow.

See you later.

Any luck today? Anything new to report?

Huh? It is 23:54 here. I've been home ever since...

Oh, that is right. Then you will have had much time to prepare a good strategy. One that will bring results.

For talking to C, you mean? Or IY?

IY, I do not believe that C is up for any contact. Unless you can see some spot. You are closer to the situation.

Okay... do you think it would be awkward if I asked "how's C?"...?

Yes! Very awkward. Very weak too.

But what if she brings it up?

Then you can speak about it and make sure she does not leave until you know everything you need to know. You must take advantage of the 5 minutes per year that a woman will talk freely and honestly.

Okay, I will. It will get awkward fast though if C interrupts.

She will not open her mouth at all. You do not have to worry.

I hope not. That would make me uncomfortable.

Just tell her to mind her own business you are talking to IY.

Didn't see IY (or C) today, unfortunately. In fact, no female interaction. But I know C has an interview at 11:20 tomorrow. But... one splice of luck. My teacher said that she won't be in during period 3 (11:15-12:15). But break-time runs from 10:50-11:10. C's appointment is at 11:20. In other words, I am almost guaranteed to see C since I'll be able to be in that room at that time. I could sit by the door to force her to see me. BUT... I think that's not fair on her and that'd make her uncomfortable. So, instead, since IY usually hangs around with C, that gives me the opportunity to talk to IY while she is waiting for C outside the door. It is a risky plan but it may work.

That sounds like a good idea. Remember to not let her go until you have an answer.
