8:30 P.M.

The deejay plays the all-time Muppet classic "Mnah Mnah."

You follow Amanda to the bar and say, "Why do you put up with him? You seem very intelligent and show a real desire to get into the scene, but do you think it's right kissing up to a jerk like that to get what you want? By the by, would you like a beer?"

You hand her a beer as politely as you can, and she takes it, smiling.

"You don't need to worry about me," she says, popping the beer and chugging it down. "Although I think it's very sweet..."

She bats her eyelids and you feel your heart melt as Brother Vadge strolls over and tries to get into the act. But Amanda is looking at you as she says, "Trust me, I can handle myself with Governor Asher...and I'm getting more out of it than you might think. It may seem like I'm kissing up to him now, but when I'm finished, he won't know what hit him. Did you know he beats his wife? That's what I've heard. I don't know why she doesn't leave him...but he's gonna get what's coming to him, believe me."

Then she looks from you to Brother Vadge and says, "Would you and your friend like to help me? It'll be fun..."

Through the French doors, you see Helen Asher walking towards the hedge maze.
