Eve walked out on the patio and looked around. “Hmmm, he’s not out here,” she said, shivering in the cold. She noticed all the snow on the ground out there. “They sure haven’t cleaned this off like they should have.”

Just then, Eve heard a noise coming from the sidewalk near the bushes. She stepped out farther and saw that the noise was Ivy’s wheelchair spinning its wheels furiously in the snow. She was stuck!

Eve walked over to Ivy in order to do the right thing and help her, even though she feared she would regret it. “What are you doing out here alone, Ivy? The snow is terrible.”

“I know, I just wanted to surprise Sam with some take-out,” she said. “And what are you doing out here, Eve, hooking up with my ex-husband for another secret kiss, hmmm? It must thrill you two to have others watch you like that.”

Disgusted, Eve turned her back on Ivy.

“Wait, where are you going? Come back here. I’m stuck! I’m stuck!” she cried.

“Good, the Lobster Shack could really use another winter decoration out here,” Eve fired back. “I’d say in a few hours, you’ll be just cold enough to qualify.” Eve laughed at Ivy’s verbal assault on her. She’d give her a few more minutes out there in the cold before she called someone for help.
