I watched her from afar. Her beautifully shaped arm resting on the hard wood of the bar, her long elegant fingers embracing the short transparent throat of her glass. I could see dewy drops running down the the round wide belly of the glass, holding a cold colourful cocktail. Sitting next to her now, I couldn’t miss smelling the sweetness of her skin, the coconut scent on her hair, the cherry flavour of her lipstick. I couldn’t see her face. All I could see was the strength of her posture and the frailness of her porcelain skin.
Her shoulder, looking soft and perfectly round, was nudging against mine. I was holding on to the beer bottle in front of me, throwing a glance over to her. The tip of her nose showed behind the curtain of her black straight hair, My eyes wandered over her long arm, taking in the sharpness of her elbow, the bones sticking out at her wrists. Her beautifully painted red nails were tapping on her glass now. Nervous? Anticipating? Irritated?
She turned her head toward me. Catlike black eyes were starring at me. Eyeliner enhancing their mysteriousness. Her red lips parted, opening to receive the glass that was pressed against them. Her eyes closed and she took a big gulp of her drink. Looking at me again, she raised her glass and I felt compelled to raise my bottle of beer, the two shiny objects meeting in mid air. Her tongue cleaned her lips from the foam of her cocktail. I couldn’t keep my eyes of the glistering wetness.
A dampness started arising from deep within and I felt something tingling. I nervously wiggled in my chair. Her eyes didn’t let go of me, and I couldn’t let go of observing her. Her fingers now touching my ear, she whispered: “Come with me.”.
She took my head and I followed her, blinded by her beauty, blinded by what I was hoping to come. She pushed in the door to the ladies room, confidently walked towards a stall, pulled me into the tiny space with her. and locked the door. Our eyes met. I held my breath. Lips on lips, in flickering light, we started discovering each other.
