She is irked and says that flights get cancelled all the time, and it means nothing. But deep down, even she’s happy that her flight got cancelled.

In the second episode of Elite Short Stories Carla Samuel, the couple goes to Samuel’s apartment. They have eight hours until Carla’s next flight, so they decide to spend it romantically. After spending a steamy night together, Samuel requests Carla not to board the flight. Samuel tells Carla that he will spend his entire life asking her not to board the flight. Carla gets emotional and agrees to stay. One morning, Samuel has to go to work at a bar as a waiter and cover 8 hours shift. Carla is shocked to learn this and tells him to take her parents’ money instead of working. Samuel dismisses her suggestion.
