Ooh Ron! With this image you are really spoiling us! How to use it…?

Let’s have a go!

Catch up with Lara here

Just Friends Part 20
“Thank you.” The waiter gently pushed in the chair as Lara sat down. Opposite her sat Christian, looking dashing in his Armani suit.
She had been promised a lovely dinner, and well, you couldn’t get more upmarket than this place.
The hottest new eaterie in town. Goodness knows how he had got reservations at such short notice, but after the afternoon she had experienced with Neil, this was well received.
Champagne had been poured into flutes ready, and Christian raised his glass.
“Here’s to a wonderful evening Lara, the first of many, I hope.”
Lara quickly grabbed her glass, almost knocking it over in the rush!
“Oh, yes! Cheers to that!” She clinked her glass against his and reddened as the bubbly liquid sloshed over the top, onto the pristine white tablecloth below. “Oops, sorry!”
Christian smiled at her. “Don’t apologise, Lara. Your clumsiness is another one of your quirks that I fell for!”
They fell into a comfortable conversation until the waiter arrived at the table again, ready to take their order. “Shall I order?” Christian asked. Quite the gentleman, wasn’t he?
Lara nodded and allowed him to place their order, not listening to what he was saying, instead staring at him, and allowing herself to fantasise about this gorgeous creature that she was actually dating!
The starters arrived, a pile of oysters. Eurgh! The thought of that sliding down her throat! She wanted to gag!
Still, they were meant to be an aphrodisiac, and Christian had ordered them… she would have to at least try and seem sophisticated, and try one.
But, unsure how to eat them, she waited for him to take the first one. He swallowed it in one gulp and offered her one.
Lara had never been fond of seafood, and this was her idea of a total nightmare, but she managed to have one, then gulped down the champagne remaining in her glass.
He indicated to the waiter to come, whispered something in his ear, then within seconds the waiter was back brandishing a bottle of wine.
That’s got to be expensive, Lara thought, it hasn’t even got a screwtop lid!
The waiter pulled an old-fashioned corkscrew out of his black apron pocket  and proceeded to twist the point into the cork. As he eased the cork out, it gave a faint ‘pop’ as it emerged, and Christan was given a little taste before nodding that it was perfect.
Another glass was set in front of her with some of this expensive plonk, and she tried hard to sip it in a ladylike manner, not necking it, like she was used to, with her girls.
Christian reached over and put his hand over hers, and gently stroked the palm of her hand, slowly circling his finger around. Lara felt her insides tingle.
Either she was getting a little tipsy… one oyster was not going to soak up the alcohol… or she was feeling that ‘pull’ towards him.
He was looking at her with a heat in his eyes. Maybe he was feeling something too. Rubbing the sensitive skin in between her thumb and forefinger, he was creating a sensation that was starting to turn her insides molten.
Lara squirmed in her seat. If she wasn’t too rusty in reading signals, she reckoned that she might be getting lucky tonight! And about time too!
She had experienced a real physical pleasure drought recently, and what a way to quench that thirst, with a drink as heavenly as Christian!
Closing her eyes for a moment, she could almost hear the banging that her headboard would be making against the wall of her bedroom, loud and frantic….
Bang! Bang! Bang!
Water rushed over her head as Lara slipped beneath the water, so deep in her reverie, she had forgotten where she was lying.
Well, it definitely wasn’t in bed with Christian!
But the banging was still going on, with a voice accompanying it.
“Lar! Lar! What are you doing? I really need to pee!”
Trust Mel to totally ruin the moment!
She was going to have to call Christian and set that date for dinner soon!

Please, let me know what you think!!!
