A ROSE IN WINTER


( 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

JUST WALK AWAY

HMMM

THEN I SAID WHAT

IF THEY DON'T

WALK AWAY

OH MY ...

THEN I SAID

I NEED TO GET

ANOTHER GLASS

OF WINE MINE SEEMS

TO BE ALL GONE

SMIRKING

I GOT UP WITH THE

GLASS WALKED

OVER TO THE BAR

BEFORE THEY COULD

SAY ANYTHING

AND SAID IN MY HEAD

OH ALL I CAN

THINK OF IS THAT KISS

OH DAMN

I SAID I NEED

ANOTHER GLASS

AND I SEE YOU HAVE

A SMALL MENU

CAN I TAKE ONE BACK

TO SEE IF I AND MY

FRIENDS WANT

SOMETHING TO EAT

HE SAID BEHIND THE

COUNTER CERTAINLY

HERE

AND TOOK MY GLASS

SAYING I WILL BRING

IT OUT TO YOU

IN A MINUTE

AND GIVE YOU TIME

TO TAKE THE ORDER

I TOOK THE MENU

AND WAS ALL OF A

SUDDEN FEELING

EXTREMELY NERVOUSED

AND WAS LIKE

SWALLOW THAT DOWN

GIRL

AS I APPROACHED

THE TABLE AGAIN

TAKING IN A DEEP BREATH

SAYING OK

THIS CAN BE WORKED

OUT AND NO HARM

DONE TO ANYONE

I GOT CLOSE

BUT NOT IN THE TABLE

SPACE WHERE THEY

COULD SEE ME

AND I OVERHEARD

THEIR CONVERSATION

HE SAID WELL

I GATHERED THAT

SHE SAID BUT ITS

GONNA BE ALRIGHT

HE SAID IT HAS

BEEN A LONG LONG

TIME FOR YOU

ARE YOU SURE

SHE IS THE ONE

YOU REALLY

WANT TO GO THERE

WITH

SHE SAID MOST

CERTAINLY

HE SAID WELL

OK THEN

SHOULD I STAY

OR SHOULD I LEAVE

SHE SAID STAY

I AM NOT GONNA

JUST GO INTO IT HERE

HE LAUGHED

I WASN'T THINKING

THAT JUST

DIDN'T WANT TO

END UP THE THIRD

WHEEL

SHE SAID YOU ARE

NOT THAT NOW

STOP IT

ARE YOU JEALOUS

HE SAID WELL

IF I AM THAT JUST

SHOWS THAT I CARE

ABOUT YOU

AND DON'T WANT TO

LOSE YOU

TO A GIRL

SHE SAID

YOU WON'T I PROMISE

YOU THAT

WE HAVE BEEN

TOGETHER

FOR SUCH A LONG

TIME NOW

I GOT CLOSER

AND HIS NOD

SAID IT WAS

THE FACT

TO END THAT

CONVERSATION

I SAT DOWN

AND GOT SILENT

READING THE MENU

SHE SAID

ARE YOU HUNGRY

AND I SAID

WELL FRANKLY

I AM STARVED

SHE SAID ORDER

WHATEVER YOU WANT

I SMILED

AND SAID YOU GONNA

EAT TOO

SHE SAID I JUST MIGHT

THE INNUNDO'S

KEPT FLYING

BACK AND FORTH

FOR A FEW MINUTES

THEN THE BARTENDER

BROUGHT MY DRINK

AND WE ORDERED

SOME FRIES

HE TOOK IT AND

WALKED AWAY

I SAID YOU WILL

LIKE THESE

SWEET POTATO FRIES

ARE TO DIE FOR

ITS A LITTLE DOWN

GRADED FROM

THE WINE BUT

I AM NOT GOING THERE

I HAVE NEVER

REALLY BEEN HOW

YOU MIGHT SAY

POLITICALLY CORRECT

ACTUALLY FAR

FAR FROM IT

AND CHUCKLED

SHE JUST SMILED

AND HE WAS SILENT TOO

I WAS ABOUT

TO SAY SOMETHING

WHEN HE PIPED

UP WELL ITS MY

TURN TO GO

FRESHEN UP

I WILL BE BACK

SHE SAID DON'T

GET LOST

AND GRABBED HIS

HAND AS HE WALKED

BY HE LOOKED

DOWN AT HER

AS THEIR HANDS

STRETCHED

FAR AND THEN SEPARATED

I SMILED

HE SAW IT

SHE WATCHED HIM GO

AND SAID TO ME

HE IS THE BEST

AND PUTS UP

WITH ME

AS MUCH AS

I PUT UP WITH

HIM

ITS THE BEST

RELATIONSHIP THERE

IS AND I WOULDN'T

CHANGE IT FOR ANYONE

I SAID I DON'T

BLAME YOU

SHE SAID THEN

HOWEVER I HAVE

TO SAY THIS

AND BE AS FRANK

AS I CAN

I LIKE YOU

I SAID I FIGURED

THAT BACK IN

THE BATHROOMS

SHE SAID

WELL AFTER WE

EAT THE FRIES

I WANT TO ASK

YOU DO YOU HAVE

A RIDE HOME

I SAID WELL I

WAS GONNA WALK

HOME

SHE SAID OH HELL NO

YOU ARE NOT WALKING

AT NIGHT IN

THE COLD UP THAT

HILL

IF I CAN HELP IT

WE WILL TAKE

YOU HOME

I SAID OK

SHE SAID LEANING

IN AND I DID

ENJOY THE KISS

I BLUSHED

AND COULDN'T

SAY ANYTHING

IN RESPONSE

MY MIND HAD THOUGHTS

BUT MY MOUTH

WASN'T CONNECTING

I THINK SHE

PICKED UP ON IT

AND SAID

ITS FINE SMILING

I JUST SMILED

THEN THE PLATE OF

FRIES ARRIVED

ABOUT THE SAME

TIME HE WAS WALKING

BACK

SHE REACHED

FOR THE FRIES

AND SAID

AS SHE TASTED IT

THEY ARE GOOD

I SAID TOLD YOU

THEN GRABBED ONE

MYSELF

A FEW MINUTES

PASSED BY

THE MUSIC WAS

KINDA WINDING DOWN

FOR THE NEXT LATE

NIGHT ACT

TO COME IN

I SAID WELL

MY MUSIC BAND

IS ABOUT TO END

SO HMMM

I AM ENJOYING

THIS VERY MUCH

NEEDED OUT TIME

AND GLAD

I RAN INTO YOU TWO

SHE THEN

LEANED IN

GRABBED A FRY

AND SAID COME HERE

I SAID

OK

AND LEANED IN

SHE PLACED THE FRY

ON MY LIPS

AND I TOOK IT

FROM HER

WITH MY MOUTH

HE WAS JUST

WATCHING

AND THEN THE PLATE

WAS SOON GONE

AND THE MUSIC

ENDED

I SAID YOUR

WIFE HAS OFFERED

TO TAKE ME HOME

HE SAID

I WOULDN'T WANT

YOU WALKING BACK

ANYHOW

ITS SUPPOSED TO

SNOW

TONIGHT

SHE SAID

YEAH I THOUGHT

WE WOULD GIVE

HER A RIDE

AND UP WE ALL

ROSE

SHE LEFT THE MONEY FOR

IT ALL

THEN OFF

TO THE FRONT

WHERE THE COATS

WERE HANGING

NOT MANY WERE

LEAVING MOST

WERE STAYING

AND SO IT WAS

EASY TO WATCH

HER AND HIM

INFRONT OF ME

HE SAID I WILL GO GET

THE CAR UP THE

STREET YOU GALS

STAY HERE

OUT HE WENT

AND AS SHE AND I

GRABBED OUR COATS

SHE SAID

HUN DON'T WORRY

ABOUT A THING

THE ROSE

I AM JUST THE

ONE BRINGING

YOU INTO BLOOM

I SMILED

I SAID WELL

REALIZE I DO HAVE

THORNS

SHE SAID ITS ALRIGHT

I CAN TAKE IT

THEN WHEN WE

WERE ON THE OUTSIDE

ON THE SIDEWALK

IN THE COLD

SHE HUGGED ME

AS SHE HUGGED ME

SHE SAID I WANT

YOU

MY DEAR

I SAID I BEEN

THINKING ON THE

KISS EVER SINCE

SO I THINK

ITS MUTUAL

BUT WHAT ABOUT HIM

SHE SAID

AND HE KNOWS HOW I AM

HOW WE ARE

I SAID OH

I AM NERVOUS

AND I DON'T KNOW

WHY ITS NOT

LIKE MY FIRST

BUT IT FEELS LIKE IT

SHE SMILED

THAT IS GOOD

SHE HELD MY HEAD

IN HER HANDS

AND KISSED ME

SAYING

I SAY GOOD NIGHT

I FELT HER HAND

GO IN MY COAT POCKET

SHE SAID THAT IS

MY CARD

ON MY HAND

AND SAID

AND WHEN THE PROJECT

IS DONE

SO YOU CAN PICK IT UP

SHE SMILED

OH YEAH I FORGOT

ABOUT THAT

I SMILED NOTHING

TO WORRY ABOUT

I WILL BE IN TOUCH

THEN I WALKED UP THE

STAIRS

AND ON THE SECOND

LANDING WATCHED

THE CAR

DRIVE AWAY

I SIGHED

AND WAS

TOTALLY OVERWHELMED

WHEN I REACHED

THE DOOR

IT FINALLY HIT ME

WHAT ALL IT MEANT

I SMILED SO BIG

AS THE KEY TURNED

AND INSIDE

I COULD HEAR

MY CAT MEOWING

OH TO THE

ROSE IN WINTER

EACH OF US

HAD THOUGHTS

FOR A WEEK

AT THE BACK OF MY MIND

AND I KNOW

IT HAD TO BE

ON HERS
