Evening Congregations

Chad and a friend approached Muffy Tuttle and Coco Conners at a Bechet party. After complimenting the women, they were briefly interpreted by a group of black women whom called out to Coco to allow them in; with Coco expressing that she had a "powergasm," Chad offered to aide her in experiencing a second, to which he was rejected.[1]
