Noah was looking deep into her eyes, her heart quickened. Feeling uncomfortable with her unfamiliar response to him, she turned in the opposite direction grinding against him to the beat. He grabbed her waist as he followed her lead. She could feel his breath on her neck and it felt so good. As the song came to an end he slowly turned her to face him, “Let’s talk, can I get you anything to drink?” “Sure”, she said. It was the only response she could come up with, which baffled her.
As they headed towards the bar he reached back grabbing for her hand, escorting her through the massive crowd, daring anyone to touch her. The crowd began to part like the red sea. ” Is there anything in particular you’d like?”, he asked. “You choose”, she replied wondering what the hell had gotten into her. She never allowed a man to choose her beverage. He turned away, never letting her hand go. “Two long islands”, he told the bartender. After paying for their drinks, he led her to VIP motioning for her to have a seat, as he handed her the drink he ordered.
“I know this is going to sound strange, but I would like to get to know you. May I ask your real name?” Chanel sat quietly not knowing if she should open up to him. She guessed it was obvious that Deja-Vu was a fake name. “Look, I just want to know who you are on a deeper level, see what’s beneath the surface if you’ll allow me to. I promise I won’t run, I’m here to stay”, he pled. Taking a sip from her Long Island, she replied, “Chanel, my name is Chanel.” “Such a beautiful name for a lovely young lady”, he replied in awe.
