As we wrapped up the picnic, Kim mentioned she had a surprise for me. I realized I just spent two days with her and the only time we weren't talking is when we were asleep. This was amazing for me, whether it be a male or a female - for me to spend that much time with anyone is unheard of. Either I will get bored or I will say something out of pocket that, even if true, probably shouldn't have been said! (LOL)
So when Kim told me about my farewell surprise I had bittersweet feelings. I believe I could have stayed longer to see if she was the one. However for one of the few times in my life I was going to stay focused.
It was around 4:30 when we packed up and she said that I should drop her off to prepare the evening. She suggested that I should go back to hotel to rest, clean up and then be back at the apartment around 7pm. Now at this time of my life if anyone told me what I should do, no matter how innocent, it was always met with a comment.
Except this time.
I dropped her off, gave her a kiss on the cheek, and went back to the hotel. I laid down for about an hour, took a shower, smoked a joint and headed back to her apartment. On the way back my mind raced, what was she up to? I also thought about the fact that I hadn't done a line since I had got here. Oh well - more for later!
I walked up to the door and knocked. She opened the door. She looked great and smelled even better. She had a black clingy dress that was very short and hugged her curves, black stockings that you could see the tops of because the dress was so short, and perfume I had never smelled before. I was stunned. She had Frank Sinatra playing and for the first time in my life I felt like I was being seduced! She tells me to have seat and pours me a Crown Royal and says dinner would be ready in 15 minutes. I didn't say a word but thought fuck the dinner, let's go!
I sat and sipped the Crown while we made small talk. Then dinner was ready. It was the exact dinner I ordered the night I met her. That was very romantic. It was good, but I wanted to get to her...hopefully she was the dessert.
She took my hand and said come with me. She led me into the bedroom and told me to sit down. I sat and she played "Brother to Brother" by Gino Vannelli. She had listened when I told her that it was my favorite album in the bedroom (still is)! I proceeded to have one of the greatest nights a man could have...how do I know this? Well, because 30 years, 3 months, and one week later I remember that night. And every August 2nd on her birthday I think of her and remember those 3 days in Buffalo.
At 7am we fell asleep I woke back up a couple hours later and Kim was up. I looked at her there wasn't much to say. I asked her for her panties as a keepsake and she called me perverted as she handed them to me with a smile. I now know that love at first sight does exist. I took her phone number and address and said I would send for her. I walked out the door wondering what if?
I got back to the hotel packed up my stuff. Checked the room to make sure I didn't forget anything. I made myself two big rails snorted them and walked out to the car with a big smile. My scalp was tingling.
Next stop, Cleveland to see a couple guys I had become friends with when I lived there.
I woke up earlier then usual and showered. Kim was up and had made the room coffee. I called the front desk and told them I would be staying two more days. I looked at Kim after I hung up the phone and wondered why am I staying? Not much to accomplish now. Something made me stick around. I have had serious relationships before and even contemplated marriage once. Since I had been out on the road though, marriage was never a consideration.
Anyways, Kim quickly got ready and said "let's go to my house, I'll shower, change and cook breakfast before we head to the falls". I'm thinking whatever. I should have come up with an excuse and left. I could've easily had my ninety-three year old grandmother die (LOL). I never use a living person for the death excuse that's just bad juju!
We get to Kim's apartment and her roommate was at work. She told me to make myself at home. It was weird when she would say things to me, I actually found myself listening. As I sat watching TV she showered, when she finished she came out in a robe with her hair up in a towel. She says to me, "you hungry? How bout bacon, eggs and toast?" Sure, why not! She whipped up breakfast and what we ate was pretty good. She then say, "give me 15 minutes and I will be ready!" Yeah, sure you will was my first thought. Fifteen minutes later she walked out. She looked gorgeous and my first thought was, fuck the falls - let's stay here. I have no clue how she got into those jeans, the heels were perfect and she was perfect.
Off to the falls we went. Niagra Falls is really pretty cool thing to see. Most of the time I spent on the road I would never do the touristy shit. But I had a blast with her besides her looks, she was funny, smart and just enough of a ball buster which made it really fun. We had a great time at the falls not only looking at the falls but cracking wise about the tourists trying to figure out their stories.
That night back in Buffalo we went to dinner and out for drinks. I really had a great time. I was really digging her. We stayed until the bars closed and then went back to the hotel. We smoked some weed, laughed and went to bed. The next morning she nudges me says she is taking my car! When she returned she had coffees and a picnic packed. She suggested we go down by the US side of the falls. Now I am not a picnic guy, but I went and it was a blast. We hung out there all afternoon and just talked. She told me her dreams and plans, while I listened and drank wine. I lost track of time finally she told me she had a surprise for me since it was my last night. It caught me off guard. That's right, I leave in the morning. I thought boy that actually sucks, this has been great.
I thought...What's up? Why isn't this broad taken? What am I missing?
