BigTallDaddyAbs Posted June 7 Posted June 7 "The lovely fine Evening." He had seen her before, but never like this. She was wearing a stunning red dress that hugged her curves and accentuated her beauty. Her hair was swept up in a sophisticated bun, revealing her delicate neck and shoulders. Her eyes sparkled with intelligence and confidence as she mingled with the guests. He felt a surge of attraction and curiosity. Who was she? What was she doing here? He decided to find out. He approached her casually, holding a glass of champagne in his hand. He smiled and introduced himself. "Hello, I'm James. I work for the host of this event. And you are?" She turned to face him and smiled back. He felt his heart skip a beat. "I'm Anna. I'm a journalist for the Times. I'm here to cover the event." He was impressed. She was not only beautiful, but also smart and ambitious. "Wow, that's impressive. What do you write about?" She shrugged. "Anything and everything. Politics, culture, science, art. You name it, I've written about it." He nodded. "That sounds fascinating. Do you enjoy your job?" She nodded. "I love it. It's challenging and rewarding. I get to meet interesting people and learn new things every day." He smiled. "That sounds like my kind of job. I'm an engineer by training, but I also have a passion for writing. I've always wanted to write a novel someday." She raised her eyebrows. "Really? What kind of novel?" He shrugged. "I don't know yet. Something with adventure and romance, maybe." She laughed. "Sounds like you have a vivid imagination." He laughed too. "Maybe too vivid sometimes." They continued to chat and laugh, finding out they had a lot in common. They both loved books, music, travel, and movies. They both had a sense of humor and a zest for life. They both felt a connection that was rare and special. He asked her to dance, and she agreed. He took her hand and led her to the dance floor. He wrapped his arm around her waist and pulled her close. She rested her head on his shoulder and sighed. He whispered in her ear. "You're amazing, Anna. I'm so glad I met you tonight." She looked up at him and smiled. "You're amazing too, James. Me too." They kissed softly, feeling the sparks fly between them. They knew they had found something special that night.
