Eva Marie was so happy. Finally Tony had agreed to have a date and she had planned a meal (mainly cooked by one of her friends).
She waited anxiously, checking the lounge once more to make sure everything was in place.
She sat down and flicked through the newspaper for the 4th or 5th time, not really taking in the words, instead visualizing how the evening would go.
So, the doorbell rang and she rushed to open it.
He really is a hunk, thought Eva Marie as she ushered him in.
Tony sat down to start on the feast in front of him. He liked a woman who took care of herself, her home and her man.
Eva Marie joined him at the table, but she didn’t have much of an appetite and just nibbled at her meal.
She excused herself and went to put something ‘more comfortable’ on, then they settled on the sofa together.
Hmm Tony had not only found a football match to watch, while she had been making herself pretty for him, but he was engrossed. She pushed her feet up slightly higher and asked him to stroke her feet
He responded well, looking into her eyes and stroking her feet as she had asked. Then his attention was drawn back to the TV and football, and Eva Marie jumped up and told him in no uncertain terms that it was ‘her’ or ‘football’.
Tony hadn’t expected this. After eating it was good to chill and let the meal settle, before moving onto other things. ‘Damn’ he would have to do a little better here, he wanted to watch the end of the match.
He reassured Eva Marie that she looked beautiful and to come and give him a cuddle.
‘Okay buddy’ she thought, ‘final chance’. She hugged him tightly as he stroked her hair and she relaxed. He moved her head over to one side and suddenly he cursed and she realized he was still watching the match. Without a second thought she slapped his face!
Tony pushed her up from his lap and she yelled at him to get out! ‘Geez’ Tony thought, ‘she is a firecracker and has the temper to match her hair colour’.
Tony grabbed his jacket and tried to apologize on his way out, but Eva Marie was in no mood to listen.
She closed the door behind him and collapsed on the sofa in a flood of tears. This temper of hers would get her into trouble one day. Heck, it just had.. Tony was the first guy she had really liked in a long time and she had blown it.
She picked up her phone and tried to call a friend to tell her what had happened. No reply to the first 3 she tried, but then Felicity answered and Eva Marie poured out her heart to her. Felicity told her to stay put as she was on the way.
Felicity arrived after a little while and Eva Marie was amused to see her in a bikini. ‘We’re having a beach day remember’ said Felicity ‘you declined our invitation so that you could meet Tony’.
Felicity encouraged Eva Marie to go get beach ready, and they would both head back to the beach.
Both ladies were ready to join their friends, where Eva Marie would be able to tell them all about her date. She loves her friends.
