In the meantime I engaged a conversation with her, just to be nice. When was the time to leave I asked her to come with us (I was really sure she didn’t want to, so I take the occasion to be polite) and she said yes. We spent a couple of hour in a pub talking. At the end, when everybody left, we end up in an a room, and, obviously, after a little chat and few more drink we had a long night.
