That’s what we’re here about. See, I do a big event every blue moon too.

APHROS
Ah, as you should!

MARIE
It’s one of our store’s most popular events.

APHROS
To be expected, sure.

Marie builds up the courage...

MARIE
So- uh... I think it might be best if you move your little ‘swoon’ thing to a different night. Since you’re new and all, and we’ve been doing it for so long. I don’t want us to be fighting over customers. Me stealing from you… you stealing from me.

Aphros looks at Marie with appreciation.

APHROS
Oh, child.

Marie’s eyes narrow. Aphros leans forward.

APHROS
Our guest list is at capacity and our waitlist is double that. I truly appreciate the concern, but you don’t need to worry about me. Our shop is doing just fine. And if that’s impacting what you’re doing, I’m truly sorry. But it’s just business.
