The polite thing to do is send them an email thanking them for the invite, and asking when you can meet up again. If you pressed them on it, you could also ask them if they have any other plans, or if they have any friends who might have a free afternoon.
If you are worried about being rejected, you could always say that you were hoping to meet up with them to discuss their future plans (but don’t tell them that you want to know what they are doing!). If you have a relationship with them, then you might even offer to be their mentor or something like that. I’ve done this a few times in my life, and I find it usually works well.
