Hannah a new employee to the bar comes over to take James' drink order.
*Hannah* "Hey, Isolde how's it going over here?"
*Isolde* "Good....James needs a drink and go ahead and bring the burgers out when you get a chance."
*Hannah* "Sure!..."*she turns to face James*
*Hannah* "What can I get you to drink?"
*James* "I'll have what Isolde is drinking..."
So Hannah heads to the bar to get him his beer and quickly brings it back. The two sit and talk some more while they wait for their burgers.
*James takes a sip of his beer* "So, you never answered my question earlier...."
Isolde stops what she is about to say. Hannah has come back to their booth with burgers and fries. She sets everything down and makes sure their order is good and all is well...
*Hannah* "Sure just let me know if you need anything."
Hannah leaves them and they begin to dig in to the food she just left.
*Isolde* "I detect a bit of an accent. Are you from up north?"
*James* "Yeah...I'm from New York. Born and raised. Got an awesome scholarship to go to school down here. Then when I graduated, decided to stay instead of move back...What about you?."
*Isolde* "I moved down here from Seattle when I was a kid. My parents divorced and my Mom moved my brother and I back here to be closer to her family."
*James* "Sorry to hear that...I had a friend as as kid who went through something like that. He was miserable for a long time."
*Isolde* "Thanks...Yeah, it sucked for a while but we managed through it..."
They continue to talk, while they finish their food. After the plates are stacked and their bellies are full. They finish up their second round of drinks....
*James* "So what movie do you want to see? Have anything in mind?"
*Isolde* "I prefer to see an action movie. The more action the better!"
*James* "Okay, well there is a really good scifi-action movie that just came out. You want to see that one?"
*Isolde* "Oh yeah! Sure, lets see that one."
*James* "Cool, then lets get outta here..Let me just pay the check."
*Isolde* "Oh! don't worry about dinner it's on me. I already took care of it. You can pay for the movie tickets..."
*James* "Oh, are you sure? I'm okay with paying for both."
*Isolde* "Yeah, yeah...it's totally fine. I feel better if we split it..."
Isolde waves goodbye to Aric at the bar and then they head out the door to walk the short distance to the movie theater.
*James* "So how far is the theater from here?"
*Isolde* "Not far...It should takes us about 20 minutes to get there."
*James* "Nice...it's a perfect night for a walk too with the full moon out."
*Isolde* "Yeah it is...."
*James* "So.....will I get to walk you home too?"
*Isolde smiles at him* "Hmmm, maybe?....."
