( a story of meeting its a pure FICTIONAL story =) )

A ROSE IN WINTER

_________________

A HEAVY THUD CAME FROM

THE WEIGHTED SHOE

TWIRLING HER AROUND

TO FACE THE OTHERS

AS THEY ENTERED THE

GREAT CHAMBER

EYES QUICKLY FITTED

OVER AS SHE SAID

THE PASSAGE OF TIME

APPEARS TO HAVE DONE

A VERY PRECIOUS GRACE

TO YOU

STANDING THERE WITH COOL

GRACE AND DIGNITY

SHE NODDED BRIEFLY

THEN SLIPPED INTO THE CHAIR

WITH HIM PULLED AROUND

HER

SO CLEARING MY THROAT

AND PERCHED ON THE LONG

BENCH

THAT SAT IN FRONT OF

THE HEARTH

SO WHAT BRINGS YOU

INTO THIS PLACE

FANCY MEETING YOU HERE

WELL?

IN A TONE OF IMPATIENCE

I FELT THE BAND

THAT IS TO PLAY

HAS GOOD MUSIC

WHEN I SAW IT IN THE PAPER

SO I DECIDED

TO STOP IN

AND HAVE A LISTEN

AND RELAX WITH A DRINK

THAT IS ABOUT

THE JIST OF IT

SO WHAT BRINGS

YOU TWO IN HERE

AFTER A LONG SIGH

WELL, WE WERE JUST

WALKING AND TALKING

WHEN THE SOUNDS OF

THE BEAT

CAUGHT UP WITH US

SO HERE WE ARE

WITH A CHUCKLE OK

I'LL GIVE THAT TO YA'

AS SHE RAISED AN

EYEBROW TO VIEW

THE WOMAN ON THE SMALL

BAR STAGE

OH TO THE HYPNOTIC SWAY

OF THE RED

AS IT SLOSHED BACK

AND FORTH AGAINST

THE GLASS

MOVING THE DRINK

OVER HER PARCHED LIPS

SAVOURING THE FLAVOR

WITH EAGER TASTE

AS IT HIT HER TONGUE

AND DOWN HER THROAT

IN THE RIGHT FEEL

OF THE MOMENT

IT RINGED IN AS THE

CHILL WAS TAKEN

FROM HER BONES

THE TWO ORDERING

THEIR DRINKS NOW

SHE SAID AH, LISTEN

TO THAT NOW

OH HOW SWEET

THE TONES ARE

JUST MELODIOUS LOVE

ALL IN THE MOMENTARILLY

POINT OF THAT TENSE

WEIGHTY SILENCE

HE SAID WELL SHE

ISN'T ALL THAT PARTICULAR

YET IN THE CARRY

OF IT I MUST SAY

IT GRABS THE ATTENTION

HER BLUE GREY EYES

SPARKLING IN THE LIGHTS

HITTING THEM AGAINST

THE DARKNESS THAT

BEAUTIFUL CANDLE GLOW

CAUGHT HER EYE

I WASN'T PAYING ATTENTION

TO HER STARING

AS I WAS FOCUSED

ON THE SINGER ON STAGE

THEN I LOOKED DOWN

JUST AS HER STARE

DRIFTED TO HER NOW

SIMILAR GLASS OF RED

A SLIGHT SMILE FORMED

ON MY FACE

AS I FELT THAT FAMILIAR SPARK

OF JUST MAYBE

THERE WAS MORE TO IT

THAN THE ADMIRATION

HE TURNED HIS HEAD

TO LOOK AT THE STAGE

I THEN REACHED

OUT MY HAND

INTO THE BOWL OF SNACKS

ON THE TABLE

AND IRONICALLY

AT THE SAME MOMENT

SHE DID THE SAME

AND OUR FINGERS TOUCHED

JUST FOR A SPLIT

SECOND

BOTH OF US COULD

HAVE BEEN BITTEN BY

A SNAKE

AS FAST AS WE MOVED

THEM AWAY

THEN BOTH OUR

EYES CAME BACK

UP AS OUR MOUTHS

BOTH SAID IN UNISON

SORRY YOU GO FIRST

THEN WE CHUCKLED

AND THEN

THAT SPARK

WAS FOR SURE

THERE

NO DENYING IT

NO WAY THAT

IT WOULD MAKE A

DIFFERENCE

I THOUGHT

ITS JUST

HARMLESS FLIRTING

AND TENSION

IT WILL PASS

CAUSE THERE COULD

BE NO WAY

SHE IS WITH HIM

AND HE IS WITH HER

SO I PUT IT OUT

OF MY MIND

AS WE CHATTED

ABOUT THINGS IN OUR

LIVES THAT HAD

OCCURRED OVER

THE PAST FEW WEEKS

SINCE WE LAST

SAW EACH OTHER

SMILING AND ENJOYING

THE SCENE

HE FINALLY SAT

DOWN IN THE CHAIR

NEXT TO HER

AND LISTENED

TO US AND EVERY NOW

AND THEN ADDED

HIS POINTS OF VIEW

OR HIS TAKE ON

WHATEVER IT WAS

SHE WAS SAYING

SHE LOOKED ANNOYED

BUT DIDN'T SAY

ANYTHING

JUST KEPT ON TALKING

I SMILED

THEN IT WAS THIS

VERY AWKWARD THOUGHT

CROSSED MY MIND

AS I FELT HIS

LEG BRUSH UP AGAINST

MINE AS I TURNED

TO SIT UP

THEN I THOUGHT

ANY SECOND HE WILL

MOVE IT AWAY

BUT HE DIDN'T

HE JUST LEFT IT THERE

AND IN MY SPACE

IT WAS THAT

COMFORT

BUT AT THE SAME

TIME HOW DARE YOU

THOUGHT

I RAISED MY EYES

UP TO HER AND

STARTED IN ON SOME

OTHER CONVERSATION

BUT WASN'T

PAYING IT ANYMIND

FOR ALL THAT WAS THERE

WAS THAT TENSION

AND I KNEW

I COULDN'T BE THE ONLY

ONE NOTICING IT

BUT I SAID NO

ITS JUST ME

LET IT GO

SHE SAID WELL

I HAVE TO GO TO THE

LADIES ROOM

DO YOU WANT TO JOIN ME

I SAID SURE

HE SAID DON'T TAKE

FOREVER IN THERE

SHE JUST LOOKED AT HIM

WITH THAT WHATEVER LOOK

AS SHE GOT UP

I COULD SEE SHE WAS

UNAWARE OF HOW

CLEARLY THE LIGHT

SILHOUETTED HER BODY

THROUGH HER GARMENTS

SHE STRETCHED FORTH

HER HANDS

AS SHE GOT UP

THAT LONG LIMBED

FULL BOSOMED BEAUTY

OF HER

TO HIS STOIC DEMEANOR

WAS JUST TOO

OVERWHELMING

SHE SMILED AND SAID

BY THE WAY AS WE WALKED

I LIKE YOUR OUTFIT

IT LOOKS GOOD ON YOU

I SMILED AND NODDED

SO DOES YOURS

AS WE WALKED TO

THE FRONT

TO GO BY THE DOOR

TO THE RESTROOMS

YOU COULD FEEL

THE WINTER WINDS BLOWING

WHEN THE DOOR SWUNG

OPEN.

THAT COOL BREEZE

BRISK ENOUGH

AND YET NOT COLD ENOUGH

TO REALLY CHILL

FOR WE WERE

SURROUNDED BY

WARMTH OF THE ROOM

I SAID I WANTED

TO THANK YOU

FOR THE WAY YOU

WORKED OUT

THAT CONTRACT

A WEEK AGO

SHE SMILED SAYING

IT WAS NO PROBLEM

WHAT ARE FRIENDS

FOR IF NOT TO

STRAIGHTEN OUT

THE ISSUES

INSIDE I WAS WASHING

MY HANDS AS SHE

DID HER BUSINESS

THEN CAME OUT AND

THE ROOM WAS

TINY AS IT WAS

SHE STARTED

WASHING HER HANDS

AS I REACHED

OVER HER

TO GET THE TOWELS

SHE JUST

LET ME MOVE

INTO HER SPACE

AND YEP IT WAS THERE

THAT TENSION

REACHED IN AND KNOTTED

MY STOMACH LIKE

OH GOD IT IS THERE

SHOULD I REACT TO IT

OR LET IT GO

IS IT THE DRINK

OR IS IT REALLY THERE

SHE TOUCHED MY

ARM AND SAID

LET ME GET THAT

I SAID OK

AND PUT MY ARM

BACK DOWN

IN THAT SECOND

I WAS LIKE STUPID

YOU CROSSED HER SPACE

WITHOUT ASKING

I SAID SORRY

SHE SAID WHAT FOR

I SAID FOR REACHING

OVER BEFORE ASKING

IF I COULD

THEN SHE TURNED HER

HEAD TO FACE ME

AND SAID WHAT FOR

WHY WOULD THAT MATTER

I SAID WELL

ITS JUST BEING POLITE

AND GRINNED

SHE SAID OH

WELL IS THIS OK THEN

AND SHE PUT THE PAPER

TOWEL IN MY HAND

AND LAUGHED

I SAID FUNNY OK

WHATEVER

SHE SAID OH NO

YOU JUST WHATEVER'D ME

I SAID WELL AND

SHRUGGED MY SHOULDERS

SHE THEN SAID

HMMM

I STARTED TO TURN

TO WALK BACK OUT

WHEN SHE GOT CLOSER

TO ME AND I WAS

UP AGAINST THE DOOR

SHE SAID HMMM

I SAID HMMM WHAT

SHE SAID DON'T YOU FEEL IT

DON'T YOU SENSE IT

THAT TENSION HAS

BEEN THICK IN THE AIR

FOR AWHILE NOW

I SAID WELL YEAH

I DID BUT THOUGHT

MAYBE IT WAS JUST

MY IMAGINATION

SHE SAID OH ITS NOT

ITS CLEARLY ALL ACROSS

THE BOARD

AND SHE SAID

RELAX ITS FINE

I SAID REALLY OK

THAT IS A RELIEF

THEN OUT OF THE BLUE

SHE KISSED ME

AND I LET HER

NOT RETURNING IT

JUST LET IT COME

I SAID OH

SHE SAID IS IT OK

I SAID UM YEAH

ITS OK

ITS JUST THAT

SHE SAID SHH!

AND KISSED ME AGAIN

AND THIS TIME

I KISSED BACK

AND A FEW SECONDS

LATER WE WERE

IN A FULL BLOWN

WONDERFUL KISS

AFTER THAT KISS

I WAS SURE YOU COULD

SEE THE GLOW

JUST FLOWING OFF ME

SHE SAID

THAT WAS NICE

AS WE WALKED BACK

HE SAID WELL THAT

TOOK LONG ENOUGH

SHE SAID OH BUT IT

WAS NEEDED

HE SAID REALLY

SHE NODDED

I SAW THE MOMENT

OF WHERE I KNEW

THEY BOTH WERE IN

ON IT

AND BOTH KNEW

I WAS LIKE

SO WHO IS GONNA

PLAY HARD TO GET

AND WHO IS GONNA
