The other student was a first year Jen hadn’t spoken to yet (she hadn’t spoken to most of the first years, actually, because she wasn’t exactly the most social butterfly in the desert, and this kid was included in that majority). He was wearing converse which earned him a check in the right column. Anyone who said you shouldn’t judge people by appearances clearly had never been a teenager free to choose their own clothes. Besides, she was doing him a solid by judging him by his clothes, because the words falling out of his mouth were a sure way to get checks in the other column: the one that meant Jen would need to avoid him in future.

You can always ask the older students or the librarian, but heads up, he is a little ….” Jen hesitated, unsure how to phrase an adequate description of Mr Fox-Reynolds. “Archaic,” she landed on with some victory. “In a creepy way.” It was worth the clarification.
