No withdrawals today, boys.

Bloody hell, it's her!

Batgirl, I am impressed.

Where's your overbearing boyfriend?

He's not my boyfriend.

Then maybe I have a chance.

What are you doing?

- I want to meet her.








I don't want to have to hurt you.

Why should you be different

from all the other girls?




It's like a dance.

Yeah, right.


Too bad we can't sit this one out.

I don't waste my time with punk amateurs.

Oh, baby, I think you've misjudged me.


(VOICE ECHOING) Smells like cherries, huh?

You've got maybe

10 seconds to bedtime, baby.

Can't end the night without a kiss.


You'll never make it to the door, Batgirl.

(SCOFFS) Smart girl.


She's taking a nap. Let's grab the money.




How long was I out?

A few minutes.

Apparently, I got there

right after they left.

You should've waited for me.

They were on their way out.

I had to do something.

His name is Paris, Paris Franz.

(COUGHS) You're kidding?

I guess not.

Your father gave me his file.

He's a nasty combination

of narcissist and sociopath.

He'll have you smiling right up to

the moment he cuts your throat.

I haven't had to deal

with his type of crazy in a while.

I don't want you to, either.

What are you saying?

Don't go near him without me.

- Excuse me?

- No matter what.

We're not exactly attached at the hip.

We are on this.

You want to work with me,

you do what I say.

And that's it?

You speak and the words are law?


Let me understand.

You're seeing a guy,

but not really dating.

- Right.

- In a yoga class.


He's, like, the instructor?
