The day of our first date was here. I was looking at myself in the mirror every 5 minutes and wondering if he was as nervous as I was. I was expecting a knock on the door within the next half hour. I was pacing from one side to the other of the living room and trying to think of things to talk about. And then there was the knock. He was early!!!
I was now sure that he was as eager to see me as I was to see him. I opened the door with a smile. We didn’t really have big plans; casual dinner, walk on the beach at night and hot chocolate later on. And then he handed me a little gift bag and a sigle rose. This was more than what I had expected. I thanked him and we headed on.
The conversations just began rolling in as soon as we started talking about our dreams and ambitions. I was really having a good time with him. And then we got on the subject about our current life. I liked everything he was telling me about himself. The night went better than planned. We ate together, laughed, joked, took photos, danced, made fun of each other’s cars, watched the sunset together, wrote stuff in the sand at the beach and most of all, we were happy.
For a moment I had forgotten that I was a high profiled courtesan. On our way to the last stop- the chocolate store for the hot chocolate that we had planned, I felt like I was running out of time and that I should tell him how I was feeling.
So I started with a “hey sorry, I don’t want to beat around the bush…” and ended with a “I really like you”. To be honest I was not sure about what his reaction to that would be but surprisingly, he was very calm and gentle. He said “you know I like you too right… that’s why I’m here tonight and yes I was always looking forward to seeing you each week as well”. I didn’t know what to feel at that time; embarrassed because he noticed that I was trying to stalk him or happy that he was happy with me?
And just like that we became a couple. We saw each other every day for the next two weeks and then on a very beautiful Friday morning he asked me a question which made me very confused but excited…
