“We’re here!”, Harry shouted.
Elise slammed on the brakes. “Is it true that, at 28, you’ve never dated?”, Harry asked.
Elise replied, “I was taught dating was preparation for divorce, giving a piece of your heart away. Also they’d say my outfit causes guys to sin.”
Harry glanced at Elise: a sleeveless top, shorts, and black flats. Before he could reply a robbery broke out. Enraged, Elise shoved the robber and proceeded to jump on him, shouting, “You won’t ruin my first date!” Harry pulled her off, showed the robber his badge, and said, “Police! You are under arrest.”
