“Mark found runaway Philip in the cafeteria. It was kind of creepy how he was sitting all alone in a very crowded area. Just if he had some unseen aura of a freak that chases everyone away. Mark took first menu dish without even looking and walked to Philip. He sat down. Philip kept silent although Mark surely knew that he was spotted. Mark looked at what he was going to eat. It was unclear salad with fish pieces. He could swear he saw an eye in it. Never mind.”
