A Double Date Looms

We have a date with Lou and her boyfriend Will this week. It's a dinner and sex, or food and fucking if you prefer, and it's at our house so it's definitely going to happen. Last time Will's work schedule interfered and we had to leave after dinner so that he could get up early the next day. Lou was very sweet in her disappointment but Will was adamant.
