Winter is finally here. An extended school vacation is in full swing, and in the middle of this, you found yourself hauling half your things to your mom’s back in Austin. You’d never be alone, and your sister said she'd never go to yours.

Your mom's the strict type and has placed a hard curfew while you stay at home. "Paula, here's the rules plain and simple: No parties, no boys in the house and you're to be back in the house at 7 PM every evening. No exceptions."
On the train to Austin, something happened. You met someone. A guy you really liked. A guy that wanted to do something old-school and have a date with you in Zilker Park after dark.
The problem: You're about as curious as you are concerned. Not to mention: 'after dark' definitely means after curfew.
