From Stevenzaf

They set off in the early morning, Stevenzaf and his girlfriend Maureen, amid promises of lunch atop a mountain and views as far as the eye could see. 

"I don't know, Steven, it seems a very long way," said Maureen, "Can't we find somewhere closer?"

"It will be worth it, my darling, it is so beautiful and the food is divine."

"Maybe we should take a picnic instead," said Maureen.

"Never! It would never be the same."

Four hours it took them to get up that mountain, in the midsummer heat. The gradients ramped up over 24 per cent and twice Maureen had to be resuscitated due to heat exhaustion.

When they arrived the restaurant was closed.

"Fuck you," said Maureen, leaning on the steps and looking at the sky. "Fuck you."
