"Eat those cookies I just bought you."
Natalie twisted back to reach the back seat of the car. She spotted the grocery bag and pulled it onto her jeans-clad legs. Natalie grumbled to herself while digging through her purchases. Oranges, no... crackers, no... Oreos, wait, what? Natalie looked at Henry with a look of utter disbelief.
Henry's twisted into a look of sheer confusion, while his girlfriend stared at him disapprovingly, "What? They're delicious. The slogan is like, 'Mr. Christie, you make good cookies!'"
Natalie sighed, "If you think chemicals and excessive sugar make good cookies."
After about ten minutes and going through the contents of the parcel about five times, Natalie Goodman finally decided to eat an orange. She looked outside the window and saw nothing but blurry trees, bushes and the occasional rock.

There were flowers growing everywhere; for a place no had visited in years, it sure looked beautiful.
Natalie and Henry took their bags and trudged down the hill. Once they reached the door, Henry pushed on it, popping it open.
"That's kind of unsafe and – what the fuck is that?." Natalie had stepped into a room full of cute, old, dusty furniture and a large bat flying around.
