Shake it Out - Phase 6
The party kept gaining momentum. Shots were had. Bums were made pink. Tipsy Heart was shaking her ass and flirting.
Euro Girl approached me with a dilemma. She and NYC Boy needed to make a quick escape to avoid an awkward situation with a former partner who had showed up. I tried to brain storm, I could tell she was in a bit of a tizzy, but the vodka was talking to me and I just wanted my hands all tangled in her hair like they used to be.
“What do we do?!” she asked.
“Ummmm…. I don’t know,” I feigned sincerity. “Maybe if you make out with me we’ll come up with something?”
I’d caught her off guard, she paused, glanced at me sideways for a second before her face split into a wide grin. “Worth a shot,” she said and grabbed me, and pulled me close.
It was a long kiss, the urgent kind where our lips and teeth gnashed just a little and she pressed herself against me. My hands in her wavy mess of hair, she smelled like Moroccan Oil. God, did I ever need a kiss like that.
She pulled away and looked up quizzically, “Nope, it didn’t help…. where’s your husband, maybe kissing him would help too.” We laughed.
While she was kissing him her partner and I hatched a plan. Since I knew the owner of the club I offered to help them leave out the emergency exit and get them into a cab.
She was saying goodbye to my husband as I was leaning into the taxi to say goodbye to hers. “You owe me,” I winked. “Hey, I do owe you, and my wife is in love with you,” he said, I could tell he was a little loose-lipped from the shots. “I get it, our chemistry is lacking, and when you acknowledged that it made me respect you even more. I think you guys are awesome. And she is crazy about you, why don’t you girls just go out on a date sometime? Go to the spa, go for dinner, whatever you like. Take her out, spend some time with her, she’d really love it, and I’m supportive of it.” He was holding my hand in his. He was wide eyed and sincere. “I would love that too,” I replied, she grabbed my bum and smooched me on the cheek on her way into the cab. I was left standing there with a goofy grin as they pulled away.
