anyone could have sat next to her,

But finally,

Within minutes the young girl began chatting

and the couple likely realized this wouldn’t be a relaxing flight

and they just rolled with it.
他们选择跟女孩一起玩乐

As drinks were being served
饮料送了上来

the couple didn’t even get a chance to voice their requests
这对情侣还没机会说出自己想要喝的

because they were cut off by the young girl stating,
因为女孩已经义正言辞的开口,打断了他们两的话头

so we can paint!’.
