“What the heck is going on, Bill?” Kathy patted her hair to smooth it back into place after that whoosh up into the air.
Bill grinned and waved his arms around, which seemed abnormally short. “You said you were bored with the same old dates, so I came up with an original concept.”
She had said that in her profile. “Yes, but when you told me to meet you in the field, I assumed we’d have a romantic evening looking at stars, not a tour of a spaceship.”
Kathy shrugged. “Only if it has a wine and cheese bar.”
“Well, it does,” Bill said, pushing a button on the console.
“Eww!” Kathy shrieked as giant insects flew out of a crevice.
Bill zapped them up with his 7-foot tongue. “Sorry about that, Kathy,” he said after swallowing. “I need to put a sticker on that button to remind me.”
