A is going out on date with B. A had to ditch C to go on this date and so C is following A and B. A and B do not notice C because they are so involved with each other. However C is so focused on spying on A and B that C does not notice that D and E are spying on her. All the persons in the chain of watchers know each other and the skulking is so poorly done that it ought to be instantly discovered, but due to Contrived Coincidence this situation drags on for several changes of scene as A and B continue their date.
