Carol “Noee” Evans is an 18 year old girl with a problem with talking to men.
One day a man named Leon “Burn” Robinson had went into the Curl-E-Que the place she works and asked her on a “date” but not before bringing another lady in for a cut.
Noee being the girl she is, just invited him to a volunteer cruise instead which he agreed to. At the cruise Noee expected Burn to be cold hearted and to ruin things but instead he was very good with the kids and made the atmosphere feel much better.
They didn't talk much but when they did Burn showed off that rare smile.
After they finish the cruise they take a cab to the Curl-E-Que where Noee gets dropped off.
Noee ends up crying walking into the shop after having fun with Burn but making almost no progress with him.
