Our Secret Place
I met John two weeks, ago at a traffic light I blew my horn and he rolled down his window. I smiled and asked, how are you? He replied I’m fine, I said I can see that, my name is Lindsey nice to meet you, John. Well, John, I know women usually don’t do this but I’m different can I get your number? I would like to take you to dinner we exchanged numbers then went our separate ways.
I went home and walked into my room and fell face-first into my pillow.
I was tickled like a high school girl this feeling gave me a rush! I felt so alive everything in my life seemed so repetitive. I got up and ate a snack then pondered on what I was going to say.
After walking around for ten minutes I called John’s number and the phone rang.
My heart started to beat fast he answered hello Lindsey! How are you?
I’m great thank you for asking, how are you, John?
I’m well, why is a woman as stunning as you single? I haven’t meant the right man, ok what qualities does he have to have?
Honest, caring, non-judgemental, and wants a family wow that guy sounds like me!
We will see John: would you like to go to dinner Saturday at 4:00?
Yes, Lindsey, I would like that! I will talk to you later have a good day!
I put the phone down and smiled, I know what I was going to wear. I have this hunter green dress with gold jewelry and my hunter green and gold heels. After I got my clothes together, I did some research for a project for I had at work before I knew it, I fell asleep.
I woke up it was Saturday! I took a sip of my tea for meditation. It helps clear my mind. I ate some toast with two flipped egg whites and a banana. I felt great John texted me good morning and he will see me in a few hours!
I texted back great and sent the address to one of my favorite nightclubs.
This was more of a jazz and blues nightclub. I got there around 3:30 valet parked my car.
I walked through the door John was already there, I smiled and fixed my hair, and walked to our table. Lindsey, you look amazing, John you're wearing that suit! In my mind I wanted him to lose the suit. He pulled my chair out and I sat down. I smiled and he smiled back. Lindsey this is my favorite nightclub. Really? Yes, that’s funny it’s also my favorite.
We ordered our food and wine after we ate we danced I really enjoyed myself. John kissed my forehead and looked down and smiled at me. Lindsey, I could hold you forever I laid my head on his shoulder.
I asked if he was ready to leave? He said yes we walked out to the valet together and they brought our cars around. I told John to follow me. I had a condo fifteen minutes away it was out by itself. John trailed me there we pulled into the garage we got out. We walked through the door, John swung me around and kissed me. I could have melted we walked up the stairs to my bedroom I turned on the fireplace with my remote it was a little chilly. I dimmed the lights and turned on some music. We undressed each other then made love. It was like our bodies were meant for each other. I had a wonderful day and a beautiful night! I didn’t want the night to end. We laid down and woke up the next morning. John and I had breakfast, we kissed and got into our cars and went our separate ways. I drive back to my house I glanced in my review mirror that was the best sex I had in my life! I want this every night I asked myself what are you thinking?
This isn’t possible, is it? Could I have a great career and successful marriage and family? It made me wonder I just planned on having flings I walked through my front door feeling different than I felt before. I had to keep myself busy and push this silly thought out of my head. Besides, I have a project I’m doing for a magazine. I typed up my article and submitted it to our chief editor. Not even an hour later I received an email the Chief editor liked my article!
I got a rise and was promoted to assistant chief editor!
I had to tell someone the good news! I was getting ready to call John my phone rang it was John. Hi Lindsey, how are you doing? I’m great I just got promoted, that's wonderful let’s celebrate!
I have good news but I want to tell you in person, Lindsey what are you doing today at 4:30?
Nothing that’s great let’s meet at our favorite jazz club. I will see you then Lindsey you don’t have to dress up. I put on a nice pair of jeans and a sexy blouse and wedge heels. I wonder what John wants to tell me? It was 2:00 I started curling my hair and getting my clothes on and getting ready to go. I was ready to go at 3:00 I got in my car and drove to the club I made it there at 3:30.
John was sitting there, he ordered a bottle of Champaign, he pulled out my chair so John tell me the good news. I sat down and we ordered our food Lindsey you are my good news!
I like everything about you, there’s only one thing I don’t like, What’s that John?
Not waking up to you every morning, he stood up and walked around to me.
John got on one knee and asked, Will you be my best friend for life? Will you marry me?
Yes, it’s a beautiful ring. We ate dinner and went to John’s place Lindsey, I knew you were the one when I held your hand. From now on, no looking back we're working towards our future.
I’m glad I stopped you at the light.
