Blue-violet eyes tracked the strange man as he got up and left the park, although the woman herself did not move to follow. It would not do to confront the anomaly like this-certainly, not as dishevled as she was with her catching arm and muddy suit. No, she would need to go home and maintain herself. Rather fortunate for her, then, that her apartment was so close by.
It wouldn't take very long at all to arrive in her spare shell while she set this one to self-recall.
As she opened her newer eyes, she grimaced slightly. Really, it was her own fault-she should have broken in the spare shell by now, tuned it properly. Defaults should still be fine enough for her needs for the day, however. But she'd need to be fast. She got her new shell dressed quickly enough, this time in a more casual outfit than the suit and tie she had been previously wearing, making her way out the door just in time to see the direction the man was headed from her old shell. And, with herself now in position to see him herself, she set the recall command. She supposed it was probably strange to see yourself walking home out the corner of your eye, but such dissociative occurrances never really bothered her. Besides which, she had a goal right now. She wasn't sure where he was headed, not at first, but seeing him change direction slightly-and the knowledge that he had just finished a drink to make that improbable throw-she made the inference that he might be moving to get another. She set up the route carefully, maneuvering her way through the crowd so as to keep herself hidden.
The timing would need to be precise, but if she was correct as to his destination it would present a narrow opportunity. Approaching out of the blue would be strange, make interaction awkward, possibly put him on guard. However, manufacture a coincidence...People let their guard down for chance meetings. It would make it easier to insinuate herself into a conversation to learn about him and ascertain the nature of this phenomena.
Quickly. She weaved through the crowd, quietly and inconspicuously as possible. Well, in truth, she didn't care if other people noticed-so long as her target did not realize. Circle back, come from the opposite direction. Slow down, count the steps, time it right. Glance head other direction, reach door handle, brush hand against his, look back with a start and feign startle. Blush, glance down with shy smile, initiate interaction.
"O-oh! I'm so sorry, I wasn't paying attention to where I was going. Um-I don't suppose I could make it up to you? Buy you a coffee, maybe?"
