Nicole /Jacques: Hi. / Hello.
Nicole: Did you have a nice weekend?
Ben: Oh yeah. You’ll never guess who I saw on Saturday.
Ben: Allie…and Mark. In the Louvre…together.
Jacques: You’re joking.
Ben: It was definitely them. And they looked really close. I think they were holding hands.
Jacques: No! I don’t believe it.
Ben: It’s true, I’m telling you! And I think they saw me because they turned and left really quickly.
Jacques: Are you serious?
Nicole: You know, I’m not surprised. I think they’ve been seeing each other ever since Mark arrived. Or maybe even before.
Jacques: That’s incredible. What makes you say that?
Nicole When I went to look at Mark’s new apartment, I’m sure Allie called him on his mobile. And I’ve seen her looking at him…in a certain way…
Ben: Hey, quiet everyone. It’s Mark.
Jacques / Nicole: Good morning.
