Sonya was sipping her French Vanilla coffee, trying to calm her nerves. She had made sure to come to the coffee shop extra early, she needed time to think before he walked in the door.
It had been 2 years since she had seen him, 2 years of her trying to forget him. Would he look the same? Was this even smart her meeting him again, after so long? Her mind was in such turmoil after reading that book. The book that had been all about her! She knew it was him, he might have been using a pen name, but that didn’t fool her. Only he would have known all the details that he wrote. The ones that made her blush a deep cherry red and tingle all over!
She had used the contact information in the book to email him, and he didn’t seem surprised to hear from her. In fact he sounded pleased, she knew it was just what he was wanting. But he could get rid of his fantasies, she had a thing or two to tell him, and it was far from nice! Her Mom had warned her about him, but like a fool she hadn’t listened, she thought she knew it all, and she had let him work his charms on her.
Sonya drank more of her coffee as her hands began to shake. She took a deep breath in, the meeting would be fine. She would tell him exactly what she thought of the book and … and…
Ooh.. there he was…. his thick, wavy brown hair, she remembered the feel of it on her fingers. She watched as he walked towards her table, his sea green eyes were pulling her in. “No, be strong”, she told herself!
He was closer, she could smell his aftershave, he was still wearing her favorite scent, Aqua Velva. She drew in a breath, as her legs started shaking.
“Hi Sonya, we meet again!”
“Hello Nick”, her voice was soft and it quavered.
“So what did you want to tell me?” he asked, as he gently caressed his hand against her neck, running it through her hair, and suddenly, she found herself at a loss for words.
