“Paul, are you sure we’ll be able to see from here?”

“Yes, we have a good view of that path over there, and I have a feeling that’s important.  But why the concern?  I thought you were confident that the Paladins aren’t coming here.”

“Now that we’re actually out here, I find my confidence slipping a little.  I wish there were more bushes between us and that fence.”

“I hear something!  Someone’s coming!”

“I don’t believe it! It really is the Paladins!”

“Paul?  Why aren’t they stopping?  They seem to be moving on toward Main Campus.”

“Dey Hall!  They’re going to Dey Hall.  Come on, if we take a short cut through the tennis courts, we should be able to beat them there!”

“Paul, I still don’t understand why you’re so sure the Paladins are headed here.  They could be en route to any of two dozen places on Main Campus.  Why Dey Hall?”

“Just a feeling I have, Linnea.  Come on, we can hide in these bushes.”

“Great.  More bushes.”

“I can’t see a thing.  Can you?”

“OH, NO!”

“Quick, Linnea, come here!”

“Paul, what the . . . . ?!?!”

“Alright, you two.  Out of the bushes, now!  And keep your hands where I can see them!”

“Ma’am, is this . . . gentleman . . . bothering you?”

“Not in any way that’s against the law.”

“Well, then, I would suggest that you two . . . get a room.  Go on, get on out of here.”

“Paul, as soon as we are out of that police officer’s sight, I am going to kick you directly in the groin with all of the strength I can muster.”

“Oh, lighten up.  If he’d seen us lurking in the bushes, he would have arrested us for spying on the Paladins.  I had to think of another, legitmate, reason for us to be hiding behind a hedge, and kissing was all I could come up with on short notice.”

“Besides, it worked.  Look behind you.”

“I was right!”
