A teenage boy is online in his bedroom, communicating with someone using instant messenger. He thinks the person he's chatting to is a girl called Cassy and they arrange to meet in the park. The boy persuades two of his friends to come with him to meet his new friend. A man approaches them and explains that Cassy wasn't able to make it but that he's come instead. He says he'll take them to see Cassy in his car. Each of the three teenagers wonders what they should do. The boy imagines walking away with the man. One of his friends imagines running away. His other friend imagines using her mobile phone to call her mother.
