Man, what a whirl-wind! lol. You’ll see in a minute, what I’m talking about…
I had a second date Thursday night with JR. He being a complete and utter gentleman knocks on the door when he comes to get me. My sister gets the door and I walk out to see JR in my house. Another big moment for me… Since he’s the first guy in years to cross the threshold of my house, which my family actually knew about. We go to leave and he escorts me to the car. He opens the door and I almost slip and fall back out of the car. Leave it to me to wear a cute skirt, but almost bust my bum trying to get into the car. Lol. I catch myself before falling and try again at stepping into the car to take a seat. JR waits until I’m buckled in before shutting the door and getting in on his side.
JR asks me, “Where do you want to go this time for our date?”
I say, “Italian.”
JR says, “I know this great place!”
We are off to downtown Houston for our date. He takes me to the Spaghetti Warehouse. It’s a wonderful place where the serving of food can feed 2 people easily. I order Chicken Florentine and a side salad; he orders a ‘tour of Italy’ plate and a side salad. We wait and chat about different things until the food comes. The food, OMG! What an amazing meal. I eat half the salad and the full plate of pasta.
I ask him after the meal is done, what else he has plan for this evening. He said since he choose this place, I can choose the next place… I choose, The Chocolate bar… Death by Chocolate is always a good way to go out. Lol. He agrees it would be a good place to go.
We arrive at The Chocolate Bar, and the smell of chocolate fills the entire building and our lungs. I show him around the building and we decide on having ice cream. I order 2 scoops of ice cream, death by chocolate and triple decadence. Talk about delish! After we finish our ice cream, we go back into the store and buy some treats for his siblings and dad. We chat and agree to go to a place where we can chat privately until the wee hours of the morning.
We wind up at this place called, Drink Houston, it’s a club, with 5 clubs inside. We grab some drinks and head out to the patio area to chat, kiss, hold hands and whisper sweet nothings to each other. We make time stand still with our intense conversation. People come and go, but we stay outside enjoying the slight nip in the air. Our closeness keeps our warmth between our bodies. We are told on more than one occasion to get a room. I ignore the comments and JR gets physically upset with the comments. I calm JR down and bring him back to our conversation again. Sometimes, it takes a kiss for him to get back to our conversation. We close down the club. It takes a bouncer to ask us to leave cause the club is closing.
JR drives us back to my house. Again he asks if he can see me next week sometime. I tell him, since I’m outta class, he can have any day he wants. He chooses Friday night. I ask him why specifically he chose Friday night. I’m curious. He said and I quote, “I want to take you out to ‘Winter Wonderland’ in the Woodlands. I think your beauty will outshine all the Christmas lights on the strip. Also, it will be chance for us to walk around and see the different decorations while holding hands.” I blush, redder than a stop light. I smile my dimpled smile and say, “I’ll be waiting on Friday night for you.” He escorts me to the door and kisses me deeply, before I walk in to my house.
I think we are still technically dating… But think we might be crossing into a relationship status sooner than he wants to admit. My feet still have not touched the ground since our very first meeting at Starbucks. I hope they will never have to at this rate.
I pray he feels the same as I do at this point in time...
Faith, hope and lots of patients.
P.S. Got a new tattoo Friday night... I love it! It's the Kingdom Hearts Logo... :D It was a Friday the 13th tattoo special. It cost me $20 for the whole tattoo! The 2nd image is of my left foot.
