You see Random standing by the edge of the roof, looking over the city. She turns and smiles at you, taking her cigarette out of her mouth.

Welcome ta da roof! Dis is where we hang out sometimes; here's usually someone up here. I come up here ta smoke, considerin' we ain't allowed ta in the buildin'. I got smokes hidden all around up here, so help yerself if you can find one. It's a good place ta think too an' it's real pretty when da sun goes down.

She puts her cigarette back up to her lips and turns back to her thoughts.
