He didn't live far away. He was actually very close by..........it would be so easy.............almost too easy.
They picked their meeting place, Fanuel Hall, a massive indoor eatery with everything you could imagine to eat; pizza,cannoles, clam chowder, fish n chips, sausage and peppers, pastries, a smorgashborge of everything outstanding that Boston has to eat.
They had chosen this place because it was always busy and crowded with visitors as well as residents.She rode in on the train into North Station and then took the "T" to meet him at the market place.She was extremely nervous and bit her lower lip as she thought about their meeting.
She walked the short distance from the T stop to the marketplace. She sat on a bench outside and waited for him. It was a gorgeous fall day with that crisp feeling to the air. Michael had already arrived and was standing a short distance away just sizing up the situation. He spotted her right away. She was avergae height and slim with short light brown hair, she looked really cute in her brown suede jacket and matching skirt she had worn and the knee high brown leather boots really made him look again, she looked gorgeous. Now he needed to know what she was like, that was even more important to him.
He walked toward her in his jeans and gray tweed sports jacket, he had decided to be casual with the jeans but a little classy with the jacket. She saw him right away and smiled, great smile he thought. He returned the smile.
He looked into her eyes and said "Hello beautiful!" and he hugged her to him and gave her a soft kiss on the cheek.She returned the gesture to him. He took her arm and they began to walk through the market place. As they walked she began to feel more relaxed. She looked at him from the side and was surprised by his height and his charming way. They talked easily and he was rather funny, telling her stories about everything from the food they were sampling to his growing up in Boston. There was a playful but sincere look in his eyes.She liked him , she really did.
They walked through the stores near by and then they went across to the water front where the Boston Aquarium was. It was fun spending time with him, she thought he was much like he was when they chatted. Full of fun and a wealth of knowledge about all kinds of topics.
She enjoyed his personality and was smitten with his relaxed and playful manner.
He kept watching her as they talked and laughed. He loved how she smiled often and always loooked directly at him when they talked.As he watched her talking he looked at her mouth and wondered what she tasted like. He had to find out.He leaned in and gave her a soft kiss on the mouth. She responded with a softness and desire he hadn't expected. He sighed as their kiss ended.
The street lights came on and the coolness of the evening settled in around them. They walked through the North End, his arm around her shoulders. They found a great Italian restaurant and enjoyed an incredible meal.
They strolled slowly back towad the market place talking and enjoying the cool night air. He stopped under the street light to kiss her again. He pulled her in close to him and his warm lips came down on hers.
He looked at her with such desire, "Will you stay the night he asked?" She looked into his eyes and hugged him close. Her lips softly brushed his.................
