Amalia was not a believer in love at first sight; however, lust at first sight was a completely different matter, she quickly remembered. And the young man sitting next to her friend’s old lover clearly shared her conviction from the very first moment they lay eyes on each other.
“He’d better not turn out to be a moron the moment he starts speaking. Or if he is one, he’d better have the common decency to just sit there quietly.” The two friends laughed as Amalia whispered the amused comment to the other woman.
“I know what you mean, it would all be so much easier if they could just sit back and enjoy the ride. He is pretty cute though, isn’t he? I knew you’d like him.” Stopping for a second, they couldn’t help exchanging a few comments before joining the men at their table.
“What the hell do you mean? Don’t tell me you set this whole thing up.”
“Shush now, you wouldn’t have come, had I told you. Let’s go and enjoy our guys now.”
Everybody else stopped existing, as Amalia and the dark haired stranger continued analysing each other indiscreetly, not even trying to hide their mutual attraction. It’s summer, it’s the time for being young and careless and happy again, it’s the time for splurging in all proper and improper sensations.
