After convincing his dad to let him take the car, Bill finally gets the keys and drives with excitement to pick up his love interest, Helena. They had met at a teenage dance and walked home from school each day after meeting. One day, Helena decides that she wants Bill to meet her mother, and the two go to Helena’s house. While staring at his lovestruck face in the mirror, Bill waits for Helena to find her mother in the house. However, he briefly sees a creepy face almost identical to Helena's watching him from behind. When he turns around, the face has vanished. Helena brings her mother, who is polite and neat. Helena also introduces her sister, who Bill recognizes as the face in the mirror he saw earlier. A few days later, Bill asks Helena out on a movie date. When he goes to pick her up, Helena’s mom answers the door and she introduces the boy to Helena’s father. The man is very strict, and gives instructions on what Helena can and cannot do, and when she must be back. Helena appears and the couple leaves the house to escape the parents’ tension. On the way to the movies, Helena flirts and ten asks if they can go to the lake and spend time together instead. Once they get to the lake, Helena apologizes for her father’s gruff, drunk behavior, and the couple engages in a perfect kiss. They spend the night talking about their hopes and dreams, and how they will run away together to Europe one day. Suddenly, Helena gasps and says that it is four in the morning, much past her curfew. They sit for a moment, but try to suppress the alarm and each party tells the other that they love the other. They begin to kiss again and go further this time, caressing and stroking each others’ bodies before stopping themselves. They quickly drive back to Helena’s house and hear Helena’s father yelling at her mother about how the boy must be forcing his dear Helena into having sex. Bill tries to deny his claims and tell the truth but the fearful look in Helena’s mother’s eyes tells him to leave immediately. The last Bill sees of the family is Helena’s sister staring from the dark hallway and the father weeping into the arms of his wife.
