I hope you all enjoyed this new feature as much as I did! Your wild imaginations made for a great story line! To read the completed tale you all helped create,
I can't believe it's the end of summer. I am stoked to have a short week and all, but it just seems too early for it to be Labor Day weekend already I should take advantage of the last days of summer before Fall hits considering I haven't completed any of the tasks of my summer to do list: loose ten lbs, dump the boyfriend, take a road trip, and start a book club with my girlfriends so thank god for labor day weekend so I can relax, have a drink or ten and wallow in the end of summer.
It was too late to lose the weight or start a book club by next week, but I definitely had time to lose the loser boyfriend and organize a road trip. I picked up my cell phone. Who should I call first? My soon to be ex-boyfriend or my best friends and potential traveling buddies?
I decided he's wasted too much of my precious time to give up yet another one of my cell phone minutes, so I chose to call the girls instead. We'll discuss our plans over mojitos! If I drunk dial him after nine pm it will be less painful for me emotionally and painless on my wallet!
Hoping to get it over with quickly, I called him from the parking lot at exactly 9:03 pm. He picked up so fast I could barely catch my breath, and in one long run on sentence said "Baby, I'll call you back in five minutes, if you don't hear from me, call the cops, but don't come here, please don't come here!" The line went dead and in my mojito induced stupor I wondered wtf had he gotten himself into now. So, I sent him a text message and say, "I think we should see other people." As I see a hottie across the room . I drop my phone and forget about the loser and whatever he's gotten himself into this time.
It feels like I'm gliding across the room on clouds towards this new guy. His piercing blue eyes seem to be pulling me towards him with some sort of magnetic force.
"Hi." I speak in barely a whisper. I was feeling a little dizzy. Was it the mojitos or his eyes?
"Hi back" he says. "You look like you could use a vacation..."
"Well", I offer, "I like pina coladas, and getting caught in the rain. I'm not into yoga and I have half a brain. I like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape. If you've got a few hours, we'll just make our escape..."
And he says " I want to kiss you all over and over again " And then my boyfriend texts me saying "If I could fly I'd pick you up and take you into the night and show you love like you've never seen.
"Too late, you're history." was my quick reply and then I let Bright Eyes sweep me off my feet with a kiss that made me feel like I was the only woman in the world for him. Not one to normally kiss on the first date, let alone a complete stranger but I felt sexy and audacious.
After our kiss, I winked at him and glided back to my friends, who were in complete shock. "What has gotten into you?!" They exclaimed. "One too many mojitos, I guess." I sighed as I gazed across the room at Mr. Gorgeous. "Well, time to snap back to reality, honey," my friend Jessa said, "Cuz you just made out with the governor's son." "He says he wants to take me on a vacation," I said, not hearing what Jessa said.
"Well, he could certainly afford a nice one." was her reply. "What about Ryan?" She asked. "He's in trouble again. We're over." I said. "I'm thinking of asking this guy if he'll see me again, though, so let's decide where we're going on our trip next weekend."
I look back at my new man and notice he looked timeless; he could have indeed been here from another era - a time when masculinity oozed, and woman swooned! Yes I was indeed eating him up in my mind. Did he notice how completely intoxicated I was? don't burp I tell my self and stand up straight.
He had barbarian strength and held me in his arms easily. His warrior eyes pierced through the thin fabric of my half open blouse and he seen my readiness more and more with each breath I took. Just then, my phone rang. Annoyed, I excused myself and flipped open the phone.
"What is it?!" I huffed out angrily, not looking at the caller ID but knowing it was my boyfriend.
"Hello. This is Officer Belmont. Do you know a Mr. Ryan Williams?"
"Y-yes," I stuttered. "What is this about?"
"Ma'am, I found Mr. Williams cell phone at the scene of the crime, and your number appears multiple times in the call log. What exactly is your relationship to Mr. Williams?"
My heart felt like it slammed to a stop. "I am..well, was his girlfriend. I called him to break up and before I could say a word, he told me he would call me right back and to please not come to where he was. He almost begged me. Then he texted me, and I texted him back telling him it was over. I have been here with my friends for 2 hours" The officer was subdued for the moment and said "Well, OK, but we need to talk to you in person. I will stop by your place tomorrow"
I hung up before remembering I would be going on vacation so, to make sure I was gone since I didn't want to be caught up in another one of my now ex's problems, I saunter right on up to the Governor's son and said "So, you think I need a vacation? How about you take me on one right now?"
"Perfect timing." was his response as he grabbed me by the waist and led me out front. Recognizing his high profile face, the valet quickly retrieve his car. Top down, wind in my face, handsome not-so-stranger by my side, just like that we left the city. As for Ryan: an afterthought, I'll deal with him after I actually enjoy the end of my summer!
