Boys and Girls

Jennifer and Ryan are students at UC Berkeley, acquaintances off and on since early adolescence. She&#39s quick, witty, ironic, literary, and independent; he&#39s deliberate, literal, serious, studying structural engineering, always working on a plan. They take walks, they console each other over break-ups, he shares his plans. She&#39s headed for Italy after graduation. Then, to their equal surprise, they spend a night together. Her response is to skitter away from continued intimacy and want to stay friends; he&#39s hurt by her response, so he withdraws. Can it all get sorted out before she leaves town?
