complicated

"Don't tell me, you and Bridget broke up?" Nick was so sure Ravi had bad news by the look on his face. There would go the blind date thing for Eric.

"No, that's going great. Its my classes." He was somber about that. "What am I doing wrong?"

They were in the Student Union building getting hot chocolate.

"Possibly, hanging out with Bridget too much." Nick grinned.

"You're saying, I'll have to break up with her?" Ravi winced.

"No." Nick squinted back with a smile. "You'll just have to figure out how to balance it more."

"I dunno." He shook his head.

"Less LARPing." Nick shrugged.

"Oh that," Ravi shook his head. "Seems her ex kills me every chance he gets."

"Does that scare you?" Nick looked at him seriously. "I know its just a game, but some people go a little crazy."

"I don't care." Ravi was indifferent.

"Well, you guys do more than just LARP, don't you?"

"She likes to pole dance."

Nick thought he might fall under the table, he was laughing so hard. "Wow, you're kidding, aren't you?"

"Um, she actually has one in her dorm room." Ravi looked at him seriously.

"You can have stuff like that in your dorm?" Nick had never heard of such before. It was shocking. "A LARPING pole dancer, you can't get more complicated than that, Ravi."
