52 Tales of a Real Life Romance - Chapter 14

Concierge buzzes me to say I have a gentleman caller on the way up to my apartment. Can't be sure but it sounds like he wants to add 'Woot woo!'

I pace around in nervous anticipation. Hands mentioned at Alton Towers that he likes the small of my back. Am therefore wearing a backless top. There are no flies on me. Clever girl.

Hands arrives. He leans down to kiss me and puts his hands round the back of my waist. Asks if I have put that particular top on especially for him. Damn...I've been rumbled. Smart arse.

Give him a tour of my apartment. Says he likes the view.

We sit down with glasses of wine overlooking Manchester. Tells me he was half an hour early so went to The Deansgate pub next door. I am happy about this. Nothing worse than a guy turning up early for a date.

Tells me a girl asked if he wanted to join her and her friends, then when he declined asked if he fancied going out with her sometime. I am not happy about this. Who does this girl think she is trying to cut my grass?

Discuss where to go for dinner from the limited choice near the theatre. Decide on Pizza Express. I say I'll print out a 'two for one' voucher.

Regret saying I'll print out a voucher. What if Hands thinks I'm a cheapskate?

Hands says printing out a voucher is a great idea.

My printer clearly thinks otherwise as it refuses to print anything.

Go to reception. Ask concierge to print out voucher for me.

Worry that they'll report me to Management for being a penny pincher. I'll get banished from the building for lowering the tone. Mind you I'm pretty sure they are already well aware I'm more Primark than Prada.

Leave Tower brandishing troublesome voucher. Concierge tells us to have a good time. Might be mistaken but am sure he winked at me.

Arrive at Pizza Express. As we both like things hot and spicy we decide to share two pizzas. There is no 'I' in team.

Go to theatre to watch show. It's a comedian I love from Scotland. I laugh lots. Hands does too. He seems to like a bit of Scottishness.

We hold hands throughout. Pretty sure that's not the done thing at a comedy show. There might even be a law against it. I like it though so don't care.

Show finishes. Comedian says he'll stick around for a bit to say hello. I get excited for a minute cause he's fit and I'd love to meet him.

Then remember I'm with Hands.

Then realise I actually don't mind cause Hands is also gorgeous. And funny too.

Think I must be falling for Hands.

Discuss going for a night-cap. Hands suggests going back to mine as he says 'it's the company that's important, not where we go.' Smooth.

I pour us another glass of wine and we sit down to chat. Hands seems more interested in me than his drink or conversation though. We start smooching on the couch.

Hands is a good kisser.

I start wondering if I'm going to have stubble rash.

Hands says that as it is a school night he should think about going.

We canoodle some more.

I think about what a really good kisser Hands is. While kissing him.

Hands says he definitely must go.

We continue partaking in some first base action.

Hands says he is going to go. Just after he kisses me one last time...

Think I've regressed back to being a teenager. Can't remember snogging the face off someone so much since I was 15 and Wiggy and I sat 'winching' in his bedroom listening to Sally Cinammon. On cassette.

Hands sighs and says he really is going. He gets up muttering something about cold showers.

I see him to the door. We kiss again. One for the road.

I go to bed very happy.

I wonder if he was worried about stubble rash too?

Wow, that sounds brilliant - you go girl! With each post I wonder more about how long ago these events were and where the story is heading - I hope plenty more of it is/was like this!

Lifebeginsat30ty said...

Mm, good sign that: thinking they are a good kisser when you're kissing them! Hands, you've made a stupendous comeback. Don't think you've devoted 14 chapters to any other boy on this blog!

Pearl said...

Thanks for bringing me along on your date!

It's been ages since I was in a good make-out session.



Glen said...

Pupa said...

Woot woot!!

Laura said...

Kissing for such a long time is amazing fun...nothing wrong with regressing back to being a teenager! Can't wait to hear what happened next.

jo said...

woohoo! nice! i'm waiting to hear how this story goes... right now i'm leaning towards it being the story of how hands became your boyfriend...

Aimi said...

I have a strong feeling that you're just gonna be his f**kbuddy...

An advice: if you're looking for a long term relationship, let him do the chasing, all you have to do is sit on your hands and be receptive.

Rapunzel said...

I'm going to pretend you didn't leave that comment Fishy. Or better still...delete it!

Thanks Matt! Don't worry it isn't an old story, just a slow-moving one, particularly as there were six weeks between date one and date two!

Life Begins - I don't think I've devoted 14 chapters to anything, never mind any boy!

Thanks for coming along Pearl!

I'm sure he went straight to bed Glen. It was very late...

I 'third' that Hyla and Pupa!

In answer to your question anonymous, winching is what us Scots used to call snogging when we were at school!

Rapunzel said...

Whatever can you mean Tuppence?!

Isn't it just Laura?!

You'll just have to keep reading to see Jo!

I'm surprised you think that Aimi. That was date 3 and there had been no such shenanigans!

Thanks you both anonymous and Christina! Hope you keep reading.

I totally agree Dater at Large and Wild Oats. It isn't done nearly enough!

Thanks Happy Frog! I love yours too!

It was Ca88andra. I'll let you know whether we continued to have nights as good..

Thanks Robyn! Looking forward to hearing about your new adventures!

Thanks all as ever x
