20 Jun Bumped….(Episode 2)
I already had my hotel booked before I left Nigeria, so all I needed was a cab to take me to my hotel. Meanwhile, Charles already has someone waiting to pick him up at the airport so, he told the man to drop me first before going to his own apartment.
I was only able to get two weeks break from work because the vacation wasn’t really planned. I just needed a breathe of fresh air after my now ex-boyfriend who decided to act stupid.. well, it wasn’t totally his fault. I mean he showed me several signs of how irresponsible he was but I decided to turn a blind eye and waste months trying to work things out. So here I am planning to have the best 2 weeks of my life.
My thought was interrupted when Charles tapped me to ask, “what’s your plan for the evening?”….I haven’t really made any plans to be honest, I plan on coming up with something before going to bed tonight……before I could come up with a response he said “ Tamara, have dinner with me”. That wasn’t a question. Well, I just nodded since I was going to be indoors doing nothing anyways.
I dropped at the hotel entrance. Charles wanted to walk me in but I insisted It wasn’t necessary so they drove off..I walked in to my hotel room and I was impressed… you know that “what I ordered, what I got feeling”……the reviews were really nice so I wouldn’t have expected less.
I was more settled now and it was already 6pm and I had a dinner date with Charles by 7:30pm…I have no clue on what to wear! I have to call Ella, my friend who always comes to my rescue in situations like this. “ Hey babe, I need you to help me pick an outfit for a dinner date”. I said in a rush. “Wait…..what! You just got to London and you already have a date, babe show me the way now”. Ella screamed. “Please, Ella the date is by 7:30pm…I have limited time. I’ll gist you later but for now just help me pick out a nice outfit”. I said.
So finally, Ella being a genius picked out a black pant and a chiffon sleeveless top that would reveal my cleavage. I didn’t mind though cos the plan was to look hot anyways…..I had to quickly wear my make up. I was about putting on my Sandal heels when a call came in from the reception “ Good evening ma, there’s a Mr. Charles here waiting to pick you up”….she said. “Oh..yeah, it’s 7:30 already! Tell him, I’ll be there in a minute”.
We got to the restaurant which was really nice and classy….”Thank God Ella picked my outfit, I would have worn a jean probably”…i thought. I couldn’t stop staring at Charles because what! He looked really sharp and handsome. I like the way he left the first two buttons of his shirt opened revealing his masculinity, he is wearing a matte black pant to compliment the grey shirt. His shoes are so shiny and beautiful that I couldn’t stop staring at them…I guess they cost so much. He looks so adorable…I imagine his arms around me , his soft lips on mine……”you look beautiful”….he said cutting short my imagination.
The attendant brought the menu immediately we got seated and took our order. We ate silently, he’s probably trying to observe table manners or he doesn’t know what to say.. while we were waiting for desert……I had to interrupt the silence cos it was already making me uncomfortable. “So, what’s your work like?”… i asked. “I invest into several businesses with prospect”….he said… “that’s a thing?”….i asked with a surprise look.
The desert arrived….so he couldn’t answer the question immediately. He waited for the attendant to leave. “Yes it is actually, Not everyone is capable of taking the risk that comes with businesses, so I’d rather invest in the business of those capable of taking the risk”….he explained. “But isn’t that you also taking risk, I mean you’re putting your money on the line”…. I added. We talked about my work also and Nigeria in general. It was already getting dark so he called a cab to come pick us from the restaurant.
We arrived at my hotel and I got down almost immediately…. I didn’t even notice Charles was also getting down cos I was busy adjusting my top. He hugged me and whispered into my ear “ Tamara, l want to spend the night with you”.
Would you like to know what happened that night and after?
