Yacht Club Dreams- Part II

With a deliberate shake of her long back curls
She strode right past him
Not acknowledging his smile
Exuding indifference 
And a certain air of pride

“Could you please tell me what things
are suitable for vegetarians?”
She asked the attendants at the table
A mellow voice to her left answered
“I can tell you….I own this place
And I checked the menu personally.”
Ready to give a
“Mind your own business” retort
She turned around and looked up into
The most dazzling
SKY blue eyes
She had EVER seen
And with that
She simply gulped down
All the mean words
Piled high on her tongue
Just as though they were 
One of those tasty little appetizers
She’d been asking about

“May I?”
He offered his arm
And took her round the table
Pointing out what she should sample
Then he had one of his attendants
Escort her to her table
As he had to see to an urgent matter

She was furious with herself
Who the hell did he think he was...
Trying to reduce her to a shy, tongue tied teenager
With his honed charm and refined bearing
How dare he flirt when she was sure he had a wife
Spying on him...
Some goddess of beauty
Just waiting for him to make a wrong move
So she could swoop down
And stake her claim
Showing all around
That SHE was the ideal woman
And deserving of this male specimen
of perfection...

She tried to calm down
The Mediterranean sparkled
In the moonlight
The sound of the sea
The smell of the salty air
Worked their magic in her
As the breeze cooled her face

It was a dreamy summer night
Almost unreal...
The lights on the shore twinkled
The pool looked so inviting
If only she could dip in
And be where she was most comfortable
For she had mastery over water...
She let the tension seep out of her

The graduates were causing a stir
There on the outdoor dance floor
She smiled at her niece and gave her a hug
Despite herself, and her worry about not fitting in
She was having a good time
If only she could wipe out the memory
Of those sparkling blue eyes…

TO BE CONTINUED…
