Before Valentina arrived, Ken seemed rather lost in the crowd. He looked around cluelessly and caught sight of someone, he seems nice, maybe I can go talk to him? he walked forward to the boy who was talking with someone else, "um excuse me?" he tapped on the boy's shoulder, "but do you ha-"
The boy only took one glance at him before almost choking on his drink. He coughed a bit as he put down his glass, clearly surprised. He cleared his throat and looked nervously at Ken, "s-sorry about that" he said in a hoarse voice from coughing.
Ken blinked, not getting the boy's surprise but smiled, "I'm Ken, and you are?" holding out his hand.
"Flynn" the boy said, shaking Ken's hand, "Flynn Conners"
Then the voice announced Valentina's arrival and Ken turned to Valentina, smiling widely, "you look wonderful!"
