She slowly exited the car. The place was really dark and there wasn’t much that she could see. Fear rose up inside of her as she tried to make sense of what was happening.
“Wait here.” He instructed her as he disappeared into the darkness. Filled with mixed feelings, one thought telling her to jump into the car and drive away to freedom or stay and possibly be tortured to death. She decided to go with the latter and waited for him.
Minutes later he emerged out of the darkness.
“Come with me.” He said and held out his hand, signalling for her to follow him. His voice was enough to calm her and all the fears she had up until that point. She took his hand and followed him. He switched on the lights which revealed a beautiful white gazebo that overlooked the city. The table was set for two and already have two glasses and a bottle of sparkling white wine. To the side of the table there was a small IPod dock with an IPod in the centre. Soon smooth jazz music filled the air. She liked the feeling she had when she was around him. She definitely felt safe and cared for.
The night continue with him telling her more about himself. He told her all about his businesses, his family and what he was planning for his future. She in turned told him about herself as well. They were definitely connecting on an even higher level.
“Wait.” He interrupted. He had a strange look on his face as if he was trying to remember something.
“What is it?” she replied looking at him with a confused look on her face.
“Can you hear it?”
“That’s my favourite song.” He replied. He went over to the IPod and turned it up to where it was loud and clear.
“Can I have this dance?” He asked.
She blushed shyly. The truth was Sasha didn’t know how to dance. “I would love to but I can’t”
“Well why not?”
“See…” She started twisting her hands together, looking away from him. Noticing how uncomfortable she looked with his request, he started to think about the possible reasons for her rejecting him.
“You don’t know how to?” He whispered. She nodded her head in agreement with him. “Get up, let me teach you.” He said gently.
He took her by the hand to the middle of the Gazebo. He pushed the table and chair over to the side to make more space for them to dance. He placed her hands around his neck and he put his hands in the small of her waist. After stepping on his toes for a while she finally started to get it.
They saw each other many times after that night. They spent a lot of time on the phone. He was really into her and she was into him but it was time to make it official and they both knew it. Finally over dinner, she agreed, she decided to take things to the next level and be his girlfriend.
