about the story
the green elephant

How do you talk to someone you've never met? Well, this is the situation that Lucas finds himself in...

Lucas gets most of his dating advice from his friends, specifically, his co-workers at Treehouse. The Treehouse Crew are like family to him and they don't hesitate to inject themselves into his personal life. Some of the advice is good, some might be pushing it, but they mean well. It's difficult to keep your head straight about it when you feel like you've got one opportunity, to make a move. But when it's with someone you don't know, how do you engage? Here's what we're going to explore...the reason for a conversation needs to make sense.

Lucas AKA The Green Elephant
the boy who lived...through a crush

Lucas is a bit of an introvert when it comes to talking to girls. As a graphic designer, he loves being creative and uses his creativity to express himself. When he’s confident he can get quite animated. Working at Treehouse is a dream for him, it's his first job starting his career as a junior graphic designer, plus he coordinates the weekly office movie night.

His colleagues are like family to him. He shares everything with them and they share everything with him...maybe they share a little too much. On this one particular day, he was openly asking for the crew for advice on how to get a girls attention. After hearing about the story of The Green Elephant, he decides to play to his strengths to see what happens.

What do you get when a self-made multi-millionaire builds a tech startup on top of a converted rooftop bar? I'm not sure...the jury's still out on that one. Austin is the CEO of Treehouse, a work haven for Alyce, Frank, Lucas, and Sara. Although they get paid to work, it's hard for people to believe they get anything done with all the side missions going on.
