He was always hitting on her, and obeyed her every command...as she did for him. Sometimes they separated, but only for his job. She never gave him a reason to distrust her. One day he followed her commands and was arrested for it. But she stayed with him...she even paid the bail. In the end, though, it was only him who suffered.
This is *supposed* to be rather poetic...did I succeed?
And yes, I know, TWO puzzles seem a little much at one time...let alone THREE...but all of them are going rather slow right now. Especially the LatVenture. Which is the one I like best. *sigh*

Are all the "he"s the same? All the "she"s? if not, are they all different?

Three puzzles is the suggested maximum. No hard and fast rules about that, as far as I know. Everyone is able to handle a different amount. It usually starts fast and then slows down in a day or two. The higher your puzzle climbs on the list, the slower it becomes. So far as I can tell, your puzzles are going at about the average rate one can expect.

That said, he: Human/Adult/Male? She: H/A/F?
"Hitting on her"= flirting with her?
Are they married?
Is his specific profession relevant?
Did she command him to do something illegal?
In the end he suffered- physically? emotionally? financially? or perhaps it was his reputation that suffered?
Did she leave him "in the end"? Did she die?
Is the specific crime for which he was arrested relevant?

Is the specific crime for which he was arrested relevant? FA alert

Just realized this. My puzzle is titled 'Be Careful What You Wish For...' Woubit's puzzle right below mine is 'Someday, it might happen' So TOGETHER, it's: 'Be Careful What You Wish For...Someday, it might happen.'
Plus, the wind shut the car door for me yesterday!

He obeyed her every command--meaning he followed voice instructions? instructions on the computer screen? in a manual?

Is "she" a computer itself? or is she a character displayed on a computer screen? for example within a video game? If the last one, is the "arrest" part of the plot of the game?

RECAP/HINT

First of all, we will call 'him' Aadin, for no other reason than that I like that name. 'She' will be Anya, because of the whole GPS story (See January 27 6:31 post).
Okay. So, Aadin follows Anya's every command. She does the same. They both trust each other completely. Anya is a virtual person on a computer. However, Anya gives Aadin a command. This leads to him being arrested. Later, Aadin's suffers emotionally, financially, and his reputation is hurt as well.

Here is the hint. Find out more about Anya. Who is she? Why is Aadin always hitting on her?

RECAP/HINTS:
Aadin and Anya both follow each other's commands and trust each other completely. Aadin was arrested for something Anya told him to do. Anya is a virtual person on a computer. Anya did not, however, tell Aadin to do anything illegal. Anya's commands almost always had something to do with the computer. Fruit pies are somewhat relevant.
And in case you're looking for the hints, they are contained in the recap!

Anya's commands almost always had something to do with the computer. Fruit pies are somewhat relevant.

Did Anya pay the bail of someone else? Is "pay" here meaning in the way that money earned would pay for something? Or was this bail of another sort?

Does arrest mean to catch and hold? (ex: The noise arrested our attention)

Does arrest mean to stop or slow down?

Is this the medical meaning (to control or stop the progress of a disease)?

And if so, is that what is meant by paying the bills?

But he still suffered because he's diseased?

Is this the medical meaning (to control or stop the progress of a disease)? No, but this is so close I'll give it to you: It's cardiac arrest

And if so, is that what is meant by paying the bills? YES!

But he still suffered because he's diseased? No (see above)

***************SPOILER***************

He was always hitting on her, and obeyed her every command...as she did for him. Sometimes they separated, but only for his job. She never gave him a reason to distrust her. One day he followed her commands and was arrested for it. But she stayed with him...she even paid the bail. In the end, though, it was only him who suffered.
'He' is Aadin, who became blind through and accident, but needs to use a computer to do his work. So he buys a program, 'Anya' in the puzzle. Anya tells him what's on the screen and tells him what he needs to do. Often, Aadin would 'hit on her', or click on advertisements. One day, Anya told Aadin about an coupon for fruit pies. Aadin downloaded the coupon. Unfortunately, he was allergic to peanuts...and the pie crust contained peanuts. Upon eating the pie, he suffered from a heart attack. Anya handled the hospital fee, but then a computer bug deleted her. Aadin, upon recovering from his heart attack, learned that his beloved computer program had been deleted. So, he suffered physically from the heart attack, emotionally from the loss of Anya, and financially from the hospital bills.
Thanks to everyone who worked on this and look for my new puzzle at the bottom of the page!
