Raising her hand to the waitress, Eve asked for her bill, knowing that it would take at least an hour for her to get home. Donna obeyed her request by laying a receipt on the table that simply said, Thank you, and please come back again. First time is free. Eve thanked her for the generosity and stood to make her exit.
