Flash Moment 01 | Christmas Came Today
Christopher was transfixed in a daze as he watched a beautiful group of women steal the show over random chatters and Christmas carols playing in the background. They were donned in curve hugging red dresses and Santa hats atop their heads. Smooth brown skin and perfect almond shaped eyes caught his attention the most. She wasn’t a stranger to the campus and he didn’t understand how he’d let this one slip under his radar.
Rutgers University’s annual Christmas parties weren’t the usual highlight for his holiday season, but today that changed. With un-wavered confidence, he excused himself from a conversation with a fellow peer to approach the girl giggling at the gossip her friends confessed with enthusiasm. Once they noticed the tall frame of the freckled face pretty boy, the flow of insignificant talks ceased.
"Hey ladies, mind if I steal her away for a little while," the smooth talking began as Christopher’s hand rested on the small of her back.
The brunette of the clique agreed without thought while the shorter Asian looking girl shot back a response.
"Not too long."
Christopher winked at the words of the over-protective friend before guiding the girl across the populated room to the bar for a seat.
"Apple Martini," she commanded the male bartender behind the booth.
"Make that a double," Christopher added.
While their orders were in preparation, a staring contest ensued. Although he had an unshakable track record with the ladies, this one left him at a loss for words. The young woman cracked a smile before deciding to initiate an actual conversation and introduce herself.
"Sevyn," she held a hand out for Christopher to take in his.
He was able to improvise from there. A succulent kiss was left on the back of her hand along with his name. Two glasses were placed on the marble countertop filled with their requests. They clanked their drinks in a silent toast before Christopher got a wild idea.
"How about we get outta here?"
Sevyn’s facial expression turned into a smirk after her mind sifted through the endless possibilities of being alone with a sexy attraction.
"Your place or mine?" -CL|358
