He then asks her on a date at a restaurant which he says is located "right on [her] way back". She is understandably creeped out.

* {{Deconstruction}}: Of AlienInvasion fiction in general. King set out to rationalize a species being advanced enough to travel the cosmos while still desiring to invade and conquer pre-spaceflight planets. He came up with the Byrus; (semi)-intelligent parasites spreading throughout the universe using whatever tools available. The ones in the book were just lucky enough to have stolen interstellar craft from a far less belligerent species.
