I wanted to write another Erin-David story that showed how their relationship was going between Erin’s Dozen and The Last Hurrah. I liked the idea of a date night, having heard of “daddy-daughter date nights” in some communities, which my mind made far more dirty than the organizers had planned.

This also let me resurrect the theme of “will they/won’t they” as a way to create some tension. I think it moves the story along nicely without it being 100% sex.
