You sheepishly walk up to the cab and give the man his fare, and a tip. Getting into the back seat with Emmie, who is still glued to your arm, you ask the man for restaurant recommendations. He grins and pockets the money. "Well... At this hour..." You just now notice that night fell while you were in the bar, you spent a lot longer in there then you thought. "I'd say your best bet would be this burger place around here. Sherman's. Good food, and open all night. Oh, but this time you pay BEFORE you get out!"
A short car trip later you step into the restaurant. Plastic booths and hard chairs, pretty standard fair. A bored young woman stands behind the counter chewing gum. Emmie stares at the menu and sways. "I'll have... the chicken nuggets and a chocolate shake!" She's still giggly and happy, despite not being able to stand straight. You get yourself a cheeseburger and a cola. Sitting down, Emmie begins happily munching on her food. "We need to go shopping tomorrow! I need some civilian clothes... and you need stuff too! Oooh! We should stay at a hotel tonight, a fancy one pretty please?" She leans across the table and kisses your nose. "I love you!"
You stop for a second... This is the first time she's said that.
