Darkness of Internal Conflict
On a flight from the East coast to the West, 2 people destined to meet. She is going to fulfill her dream – a flight attendant. He, well let’s just say he has some demons. The one thing he has going for him is he’s very smart and handsome.
What is not known are his demons. What are they?
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 I 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, 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.
How will they meet? Sebastian sitting in his seat thinks about how to get her attention. Alexandria sees a handsome man and wonders how to make a connection.
As she gets up to use the lavatory, she through her eyes let’s him know she is interested. It’s important not to be show him she is overly interested. She must leave room for him to pursue her. Her thoughts are even though they live in the 20th century where women now can take the lead or be the go getter, Alexandria is still from the mindset, the man makes the first move.
Sebastian realizes she is interested. He has dated enough to know the signs from a woman when he is interested. It’s much tougher being on the plane. It’s no one else’s business if he’s found a sexy woman he wants to date. The other challenge is the voice inside of him is also competing. Who is this voice? What does this voice represent? Is this side personality dangerous? Why is there a conflict?
What happens next?
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 fitted dress and the figure underneath move gracefully. 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 with a dark blue blazer covering a nice Navy blue dress shirt and snuggly 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.
Sebastian is keenly aware that she is stunningly beautiful. Her hair is moderately long with perfectly placed with cute bangs adorning the front of her head. Her wavy brown hair tied in a ponytail bounce with every step. 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. Standing waiting for the restroom she finds herself in a trance. This is 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 suddenly 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.
Now they have seen each other, what happens next? Who will make the first move? Will her sexual desires force her to change tradition?
Which scene will get her attention where he can get the prize?
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.”
After she enters the restroom, 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.
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.
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 demonstrating serious 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.” “This is not how I imagined meeting him!” She exclaims.
“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.
