Part 1: the pick up.
Benny calls Lila around 6, just to see if she’ll pick up.. He caught himself trying to call her bluff. Joke’s on him, to his surprise, she picks up: “Mr. Sanders, hi funny you just crossed my mind, — oh really, he replies.. “Yes, where are we going tonight?” Oh to one of my favorite spots, you’re in for a treat, hope you like to eat, and are quick on your feet. She laughs, okay lucky for you, I’m two for two. So let me start to get ready, 8? 8. They exchanged goodbyes, ending the call..
2 hours later, Benny is right on time, and before he could call her phone she stepped outside. Damn, he thought, she was looking fine.. Like a chilled glass of wine to a mother of five. She had on this figure flattering jumpsuit, color complimenting her shoes.. baby girl was looking like a meal, her appeal, took his breath for a second til he remembe(red) she’s looking around for him, he honks, she struts to the car…
Speaking of, tonight he chose to bring out his latest toy; matte ash gray Ferrari, we won’t get into specifics, but just know the engine made noise. As Lila ente(red) woo, this is nice, so you heavy on the pedal, or you prefer to keep it light? As she buckled her seat, he chuckled, you’re about to see.. “Nice, I’m in love with fast cars, always a good ride..” She scoped the back out, no room for anything else.. Yeah me too. I have a few, dropping the top.. He pulled off with ease, I see you’re punctual Lila, that’s rare for most women. “Let’s add another cliche, I’m not like most women.” They laughed. Touché. There was no tension after, check. He hoped she could take a joke. Lila is thinking of where could they possibly be going? But verbally they’re asking the basics, conversation is flowing… Mutual interests revealing, Benny picked up all the info he needed, wondering what she thought of him as he admi(red) her beauty at a red light. She sta(red) back, admiring her sight.. Damn he looks good. Even better than when she first saw him, and his taste in clothes and cars so far?, check. Cause you know, that says a lot about a man.
They pulled up to a parking lot, to a building that seemed more for business than a restaurant.. “Where are we?” Well as I mentioned, I have a couple ventures, this just happens to be one of them, there’s an indoor field day that awaits us, I told you you’re in for a treat.. He was being vague, she didn’t know if she disliked it more than she did actually like it. It was intriguing to play the guessing game, hm, he might be something after all.. Lila has a weak spot for the mental man. One with a plan.. This should be fun, she said out loud, he cracked a smile, held his hand out, follow my lead.. They ente(red) the building, Lila eyes lit up.. She certainly was in for a treat.
