“So…it’s an outing?”
“It’s not a fruit?”
“Or a nut?”
“It would be…a formal outing?”
“No, It can be casual if you want.”
“But we cannot do chores? Or Errands?”
“No. It would defeat the purpose. This is a…a special outing.”
“But special does not mean formal?”
“No! Just….just an outing. No other purpose than to have a fun time! No errands, no chores, no worries! Just you, me, and a nice dinner or something.”
“Well, why didn’t you say so! We’ll tell Pixel, and –”
“No! Pixel can’t come!”
“But Pixel is our friend!”
“I know. It’s just…you’ve seriously never been on a date?”
“I still don’t see how this has to do with courtship…”
“Courting, on my world, is dating!”
“Courting has nothing to do with the things you’ve described!”
“Fine. Explain courting to me as you know it.”
“When a boy has romantic intentions toward a girl, he asks her father for permission to court her –”
“Aha! And what does Courting entail?”
“Usually dinner with her family. Sometimes he will stay for after-dinner activities –”
“What activities?”
“Music, or discussions of the latest news concerning the Border Lords –”
“That’s it?!”
“Well, afterward, the father can take the girl aside, and ask her whether or not she enjoyed herself, so that they can extend an invitation for him to come again.”
“Ancient dating sucks!”
“I mean…it’s different on Earth.”
“Yes, you’ve been saying that.”
“On my world, dating doesn’t always lead to marriage.”
“Yes. Your heathen world again. Where the women wear scandalous clothing and worship the sun.”
“Yup. But dating can be fun!”
“I don’t see how an unproductive evening with no chores or errands can be beneficial to anyone.”
“I didn’t say it was beneficial. I said it was fun.”
“I don’t know why you would do this careless thing, though! It serves no purpose but to –”
“You know how sometimes…we kiss? For no reason?”
“Yes, but –”
“That doesn’t really serve a purpose either, does it?”
“Well, no, but –”
“Exactly. That’s why we date.”
“For Gummi-worms?”
“…I jest…”
“Oh. Right.”
“So…Helaine? Would you do the honor of going on a date with me tonight?”
“I’d be delighted!”
“Great! Now we can see what Shanara can do about a change of clothes…”
“For whom?”
“Well, both of us! We have to look nice!”
“I like what I’m wearing.”
“It’s not date-appropriate, though.”
“Well, you said we didn’t have to dress up.”
“What? When?”
“Before. You said we could dress casually. This is my casual attire. I wear it every day!”
“But you can’t dress the way you would every day for a date.”
“Why in the world not?”
“Don’t give me that long-suffering sigh, Score, answer my question!”
“Okay. Look…”
