"So, why are we here again?"
For some reason, Lance has invited me back to the space mall. He said something about treating me here.
"It's just down this way, follow me."
We walked through the mall, passing by the various stores. Suddenly, Lance stopped and turned to one of them.
"This is the place."
We ended up in front of an unsuspecting restaurant.
"What's so special about this place."
"Right over here -- check this out!"
A sign was posted at the store front: "Today only! Couples get 50% off!"
I glanced at Lance.
"Nu-uh, no way I'm getting into this nonsense with you."
"Come on, the food here is to die for!"
I tried to keep arguing, but he grabbed my arm and dragged me in before I could say no.
"Excuse me, one table for the couple, please!"
Surprisingly, things went off without a hitch. We were given a table with no further questions asked.
And like Lance said, the food here was fantastic. I almost had half a mind to thank him for this wild idea.
But then, right before we got the bill, we were hit with a surprise attack.
A milkshake was set on the table before us. It had two straws in it and heart-shaped wafers on top.
"Every couple also gets this complimentary couple's milkshake!
"Could you please drink out of it at the same time while we take a picture?"
There was no way out except to face the enemy's attack head on.
Lance and I both gulped as we prepared ourselves for what we were about to do.
And thus, a picture of the two of us drinking out of the same milkshake was posted shamelessly at the store front.
Before we left, we spent a long time looking at it, something important dying inside of us.
"Team Voltron must never come back here. Ever."
