Vincent took time to adjust to college, to the dorm, to the people. He didn’t start going out until Spring Break, and then just casually.
He didn’t really date anyone. It was running into Emily here and Ashley there and Megan over there. He kept them all as the first stop in a ‘friend’ trip.
He came home during the summer and he and his family went to their usual lake side retreat. He pretended he was enjoying college about ten times more than he was, and everyone was fooled, or wanted to be fooled.
He met people, had a few evenings out with this group or that one, then, returned home and went back to college.
He did not see or hear about Connie or John or anyone.
