Transcript of Loathe at First Sight

The story starts off with a guy named Alan who is trying to pickup a girl at the beach. He approaches her and begins complimenting her. He’s very attracted to her toes. He tries many things to get her attention but she doesn’t seem very interested. He finally asks her name and she says Hepzibah Flurge. He didn’t buy it and asked her actual name. She couldn’t resist telling her name and she said Anne. Alan was getting desperate and asked what was wrong, he was told by Anne that he came on too strong at the beginning. They restarted their conversation with a simple hello. Anne asked how the water was and Alan responded with its cold at first but it warms up after a while. Anne responded with many things are like that.
