Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
PART B_2

Would you like to go to the concert with me?
I’m sorry. You can ask Nina to go along with you.

Why so? Are you alright?
Yes, I prefer watching TV to watching a concert.
You know, I don’t like lots of things about crowded places.

Such as?
Police sirens outside, chatting, coughing, people pushing past
to get to the toilet.
I think you understand that, right?

I see. Sometimes, that really feels terrible. In my case, I just enjoy being in the presence of someone famous.
Also, I don’t like the idea of sitting still for a couple of hours.

Well, for me, there is something about sitting in the dark with a group of strangers and experiencing the same event.
What I really dislike about it are picking a parking spot,
looking for your friends,
and looking for your seat.
