The Darkness within
On a flight from East to West, two incredible people meet. Their lives will be changed forever.
On the flight, Sebastian Thompson, who is traveling alone sits in an aisle seat towards the back of the main cabin of the plane. Sitting approximately 2 rows forward is Alexandria.
After 2 hours into the flight, Alexandria Washington realizes she needs to use the restroom. She proceeds to get up from her seat, an aisle seat as well.
She rises from her seat, as she looks up facing the rear of the airplane, her eyes stop abruptly and rests upon a chiseled manly face with incredible green eyes. Not realizing it, she had stopped in the middle of the aisle. Fixed on her were not just the eyes, but the soul of Sebastian. For the brief moment there were no other souls around. The universe was about them.
Looking down reading his Kindle, Sebastian feels and senses the pair of soft eyes, colored blue and green focusing on him. Losing his concentration, he watches the curvy yet wonderfully colored dress and the figure underneath. Continuing to move upward, the outline of the vibrant brown hair comes into view. Without warning, electricity flares like an electric socket overloading his desires causing his sexual desires to communicate a need to respond.
She notices he is dressed smartly in a business casual suit in a dark colored blazer covering a nice dress shirt and black pants. The outfit is finished with a nice pair of black progressive styled shoes. His hair style is short, light colored with tight curls. How sexy are tight curls on a man? He showcases broad shoulders and a muscular body frame. To add to the striking presentation are pearl green eyes.
Alexandria while walking towards the bathroom becomes distracted. Sebastian is keenly aware that she is stunningly beautiful. Her hair is short with perfectly placed and cut bangs adorn the front of her head. Wavy brown hair tied in a ponytail bounce with every step. She wears a beautiful yet colorfully flowered fitted dress. This multicolored dress accentuates the defined curves and full breasts that frequently catches the eyes of men and women alike usually admiring.
Deep inside, the desire to say hello to him, was strong, but it was important to maintain the standard that she was raised with: the man always initiates hello. Her trance is interrupted by a young boy
Excuse me he says , “I have to go to the bathroom.”
“I am so sorry” says a startled Alexandria. She steps to the side and allows the most polite boy to go ahead of her.
This disruption allows Alexandria to refocus and remember her initial intent, the restroom. Now both were actually occupied looking up to notice the red indicator panels. “I better get in line before I have an accident,” she thinks to herself.
Without warning, Sebastian has the urge the to go to the restroom. He was so engaged into the apparent dream, he missed the message to get up and go. This was also an opportunity being she was right in front of him. Not only did he now have the opportunity to actually talk with this ray of light. Meanwhile, he took note from the back the sculpture of sexiness standing before him.
His internal nocturnal desires confirm what his eyes acknowledge. “I have to say hello. This is the opportunity I can’t miss”. he thinks to himself. “The worst that can happen is she won’t be interested. What if I gently bump into her, pretend there is a bit of turbulence or I lose my balance? the internal discussion continues. “That’s it!”. He proceeds to position himself.
THE EXIT STRATEGY
Sebastian positions himself ready to make his move. He leans like the “Tower of Pisa” , Alexandria takes a step towards the restroom realizing the person is about to exit the bathroom. The door of the bathroom opens as the occupant exits.
It’s her turn. She doesn’t realize Sebastian is behind her. She enters the restroom walking past the occupant. Sebastian immediately straightens his body now the moment has passed. If not, he could have fallen flat on his face. A gentleman comes up behind Sebastian waiting for the bathroom as well. Recognizing him, Sebastian stands waiting.
The other bathroom door opens as the passenger exits and Sebastian gets an idea. He decides to stand really close so when she opens the door, it will his head.” “Damn good idea” he thinks to himself. In the meantime, he doesn’t realize the other restroom is vacant.
“Are you waiting for the restroom?” asks the gentleman.
“Oh, I’m sorry, you go ahead.”
Sebastian hears the toilet from the bathroom Alexandria is in. “She’s coming out soon. The flight attendant sitting next to the door reads her book. By the smirk and her left eyebrow raised, she let’s Sebastian know she is aware of what is happening. She shakes her head, “oh boy, games people play” she thinks to herself.
A few minutes later the latch clicks and the restroom door starts to open. Sebastian immediately moves close to the door. The flight attendant moves further towards the airplane door knowing his plan. He stands right next to the restroom door with his head titled slightly ahead of his body and raises his hand rises towards his face to brace the impact protecting his head.
As she exits, there is a loud thump.
“Ouch!! Sebastian cries. Slowly a pair of blue green eyes peek around the around the door and sees Sebastian.
Close the DEAL
Alexandria has no idea of what she hit with the door.
Mortified, Alexandria in a panic says, “I am so sorry,” not even aware of who is outside the door. The flight attendant sitting on the jump seat just shakes her head in disgust.
As she turns her head quickly around the corner to see how much damage she has done, preparing to make sure this awfully injured person is OK, she comes face to face with the man that caused her to pause while in the aisle. Her heart drops, realizing who it is.
Now I have actually ruined it.
Yet her last thought, although brief, immediately took a back seat to making sure he was OK.
This is working perfectly, Sebastian thinks to himself.
Knowing that is transpiring, The flight attendant barely moves but out of a sense of duty faintly asks, “Sir, are you OK?”
Alexandria is touching Sebastian softly and gently seriously concerned about his well being.
“I’m OK,” Sebastian is milking every moment.
“I’m good. I should probably sit down, though, just to be on the safe side.”
“Absolutely,” replies Alexandria without hesitation and walks with him each step of the way to his seat a few rows away, still holding on to his shoulder.
They make their way through the aisle back to his seat a few rows away where he sits down gingerly, pretending he is in discomfort and grunting “Oooh!” to make it sound worse.
Now seated, her worried gaze looks him over.
“I am so so sorry,” she says, “I wasn’t paying attention.”
“It’s OK. I feel much better already.”
He presses his hand against on his forehead. Other passengers walk by looking wondering what is happening.
“Would you like something to drink? I can get it for you,” Alexandria asks.
“That sounds like a good idea,”
he replies. Before she could turn to fetch the water, the flight attendant approaches her with a small bottle of water handing it to Alexandria.
