Jay saw her enter the bar alone. As she caught him staring, she went ahead and introduced herself, “hi I am Ria.”
He looked uncomfortable, so Ria thought to make the first move. “A drink?” she asked.

Jay’s phone rang and he answered, “will be home soon sweetie.”

Irritated, Ria blurted, “I thought you were serious about this roleplay thing?”
“Yes, but the kids need us,” he mumbled.
