Even though I wasn’t expecting it, he drew me close with his right hand and whispered to my left ear, “Promise me that our next meeting will be in my house”. To be candid, I was disappointed. I was expecting something different, but I had to hide my disappointment and pretended to be normal. ME: Sure! I promise, you just send me the address later in the week. REX: Thank you…seriously I had fun. ME: Same here dear…. (As he gently unlocks the door and we both steps out). REX: Do you really have to walk me to my car? ME: Yes, just as you helped me unlock the door (and we both laughed about it). He held my right hand as we walked down the staircase, I must admit; it felt really good. It has been a while I felt a gentle man like REX hold me so innocently.
(Pours out the last glass of my homemade smoothie and moves back into the sitting room to join REX) ME: (chuckles) hope I didn’t take too long? REX: (beams up a lovely smile) not at all dear, at least I’m enjoying the sports news. ME: Men and football games (I was right when I guessed he would prefer the sports channel anyway), I wonder when you guys will stop. REX: Football is part of us you know! ME: I see…(handing over a glass of my homemade smoothie to him). REX: Thank you very much (sips it immediately). REX: Hmmm…this tastes good! Thanks for sharing with me. ME: You are welcome. REX: (lowers the volume of the TV and turned to my direction) Ucee!
He came out of his black Toyota Highlander (2016 model) and locked it. In a pair of blue colored trousers, an ash colored polo and a black suede shoe; he was looking good I must confess. Trust my curiosity, I was peeping through my window to assess him before he gets close on my door to announce his arrival with a knock. He was looking good and simple (exactly the way I like it). A dark in complexion tall guy, his body size was exactly the way I love it (masculine) and I started building up sweet fantasies (I’m very good at that); those sheepish smiles of mine overwhelmed my lovely made-up face…..thanks to the Knock on my door, which brought me back from dreamland. You know the trick….right?
The neighborhood looked quite enchanting and beautiful, in a way that only a few appreciated. Jake stood off in distance taking random photo shots of people especially the bunch of girls taking selfies. There was something ridiculously comical about the way they made faces at their camera…they chatted and giggled at each other completely ignoring him. Well, lucky Jake; finally the pretty one with a shiny blonde hair noticed him.
We met at a colleague’s engagement party. As usual, I was late. Most people were already into their third glass of wine. But then, I had to stay back late at the office and work. I spotted him almost immediately I stepped into the dimly lit hallway. People were standing in pairs or in a group, talking and laughing. He stood alone by the door. Sipping from a glass and looking unwelcome. I took my eyes off him and searched for our host, who was at a far corner of the room, having a chat with some guests. I walked up to them and exchanged pleasantries.
