My First Date with Lucy

 I was twenty minutes late, She forgave me any way,
Yet Lectured me about first impressions.
I  could have welcomed the light penance any day,
But the length of her reprimand built vexatious emotions 
Within my heart for she addressed the issue for an hour,
Giving instances and reasons for time management power. 

Meanwhile , the waiters had checked on us thrice.
I had waved them on each occasion signifying I needed their Patience,
She had finished her sermon so I called one of the waiters' guys,
And asked my Lady what drink would crave her allegiance.
She said ."Five Alive" Juice.
And asked for same amidst the DJ 's intoxicating Blues.

I pondered on where to begin my conversation ,
For before now the only thing I knew about my lady's personality, 
Were her phone number, her radiant face and a body of inspiration,
All Thanks to my after church service flirtation but now came a new reality.
Lucy was sitting right in front of me and I was thrilled 
For it took many rejections and some of my personal principles killed. 

I decided to tell her how much I cared about her,
And her radiant smile slowly began to unleash .
We familiarised about divers issues without flaring temper. 
Then came my confidence that was to swallow me like Jonah's Fish
I told her to ask me any thing 
With a promise to be truthful and honest about everything

"Are you seeing anyone? "
It was a routine question so I was not perplexed 
I told her that for over a year I had not been with anyone.
She smiled and I could see her  previous resistance had been compressed. 
I told her for same period  I haven't had one night stands or a fling
Amidst her smile,  I said I had  to find my queen Lucy as an honorable King. 

Then it happened like rapture 
Maria a very blunt lady who usually spoke before she thought
Was walking towards us and she almost passed but her eyes captured
Mine and she turned few centimeters to our table's cloth
"Wow, Man I see why you are not taking your calls since last week"
"I only wanted to tell you that you did me good and made my week"

"Hi lady I am Maria, you are lucky to have this Stud to yourself ".
"I wish it was last week all over again". she varnished
The whole world was falling on my head as I wasn't myself
Then  I saw Lucy give me the gaze of a Tiger Famished 
She sprang up and in a spit second splashed her juice on my body
As she hurried out I lifted up my head to find the eyes of everybody.
