Jack's answer has his pursing his lips, tilting his head back to rest against the plush leather of the bench to regard his curiously across the table. It's a philosophy he can see the logic in, but never one he's lived by. If that were so, he might have run off to Scotland at seventeen for a girl with black hair that fell halfway down her back, might have- on numerous occasions- told his law homework to go fuck itself. But he never did, and so here he is now, on the verge of adding an Esquire to the end of his name, graduating from a very prestigious school and making a proper life for himself. He'd much rather have that than an uncertain summer in love, or a night out with Andrew and Theo instead of in with his books.

It seems much safer to do things the way he does. And he's happy, he just understands that one can't be happy in every moment. There's always a greater happiness to work for; drive and ambition to make it to the next level, and the satisfaction one derives from that.

He doesn't say that, though. No need to give Jack a lecture on their first date, after all, if this even is that. So he shrugs, taking another drink. 'Well, one must bear in mind the consequences of one's actions. No point in taking what makes you happy if you'll have to pay for it the next day.'

That all sounds rather dour for this sort of setting, though, so he lightens his words with a crooked little smile. 'So they'd have to be very deep woods if I was to do any running into them.'
