Ah, one of the freshman in our department this year is very pretty. Did you hear?

Of course I heard, I live in the dormitory, how could I not hear. It's all anyone talks about when we get together.

What's the point in just talking? You have to go through pretty girls if you want to get to know pretty girls. I asked the prettiest girls in our department to ask her to meet up with me.
