Die Good old Friend Heartbreaker von Aunts & Uncles hat sich ihren Namen zurecht verdient. Denn sie ist ein wahrer Herzensbrecher, wenn es darum geht bei einer ausgedehnten Shopping Tour durch die Boutiquen der Innenstadt stilvoll zur Seite zu stehen. In ihrem durchaus geräumigen Hauptfach mit rot/blau kariertem Futterstoff verstaut sie mühelos und schnell all das, was ?Frau? schon immer haben wollte. Das Kartenfach, die Stiftlaschen oder das Handyfach behalten trotzdem die notwendige Ordnung. Das Reißverschlussfach auf der Rückseite ist wunderbar geeignet für ein Notizblock mit den Adressen der schönsten Läden der Stadt. Wann gehen wir Shoppen?

Aunt Elizabeth and Aunt Sara serve as guards and discipline them. While these two utilize cattle prods to intimidate, other guards possess guns.

The room does not contain anything that can be utilized as a weapon. As she hears a bell, the narrator changes into red attire engulfing her entire frame. A shade covers her face.
