Normally Naeem would have been a bit weirded out by somebody he didn't recongnize knowing his name if it wasn't so convinient for him. He was never good at introductions so that saved him the trouble of doing any. Usually somebody had to ask him to repeat him name again or it just ended with the other person trying to awkwardly pronounce his last name. "You're name is Ivy or something, right?" He was pretty sure he was forgetting something in there but he felt it was close enough. He allowed himself to give her a toothy grin. She said something about having mutual friends and he could just barely bite back his scoff. "Not likely; I didn't have many friends." Didn't. He still doesn't and although his voice didn't show it, he actually did feel some amount of indignity for not being as socially adept as other students. He used to be fine with living in isolation, but as he grew older he found himself no longer content to merely observe.
So of course when the girl asked if she could tag along with him, he felt some amount of joy pump through his body. Even though he could feel the awkward air she was giving off, he couldn't have been in a better mood. "Yes, of course!" No sooner had he said that did he catch himself making two errors. He sounded too eager and if yes was the answer to her question, he would have gotten the opposite result of what he wanted. He stopped his sentence short and cleared his throat. He strode forward to coax her in the same direction as well as hide his face from that small shock of embarrassment.
"I mean, of course I wouldn't mind." He said, this time with fixed errors and a much cooler tone of voice. He found it best to have plenty of ambiguity, especially when meeting new people. Only few would actually care about his emotions or thoughts whereas most were just curious. "Lead the way." He insisted, despite the fact that he had been the first to take steps forward. He had forgetten his manners.
