Wish We Did

Prudie: “She had this other trick. So suggest something to me, something, something you’d like to do.”

Trey: “Ok. Let’s get a room.”

Prudie: “Let’s not get a room and just say we did.”

Trey: “And then you’d give up? You weren’t a very persistent kid were you.

Prudie: “Trey, you really shouldn’t come on to me.”

Trey: “Why? Because you’re my teacher?”

Prudie: “We can’t do this.”

Trey: “Let’s get out of here. We can go back to my place, we’ll just talk.”

Prudie: “Let’s not and just wish we did.”
