However, it was a little surprise that Simon made the order without asking Mila at all, but she thought that they knew each other quite well and he knew her taste. Besides, she took it for another proof of his self-confidence and she liked that. They had a great time until they got the bill.

Before they looked at it, Simon offered to guess what amount was given in the bill. The one who would be further from the truth would pay the common bill. Of course, Mila did not guess because she had not seen the prices on the menu. She had said 130$ and Simon said 200$. Mila paid 270$.

When they left the restaurant, he took a taxi and she took the subway as if they did not know each other at all. Simon stopped writing her and deleted her from the contacts.
