When we finally got to see each other again

The day had arrived - it was a Thursday, and Anthony was going to be there by the end of the day. The friends I was staying with, Julie and Micha, were going out that night and asked me to babysit Stanislas, their 5-year-old son. But it worked out pretty well since they didn't come back late. So Anthony was able to come pick me up after to go for diner, for our first official date! It was totally surreal but very real at the same time. I was going to see him again after we first met very briefly at the airport. That was very exciting but very scary too... We were both adults and very attracted to one another, so we knew what all this was going to lead to, but we had no idea exactly how! So I made myself as pretty as I could - very important on a first date :p

Anthony was there at around 10:00 pm. I remember just before going to the door, Julie asked me if I knew if I was coming back that night or not. I told her that I had no idea, but that just in case I had packed my Chanel purse just enough to survive - I had new underwear, a bikini, and my tooth brush! I thought it was better to be well prepared, since you never know what can happen...

I walked out of the house, and I saw a car that arrived at the same time. My heart started beating so fast. I'm someone who gets flush-red in the face very fast when I'm in an uncomfortable situation. So I was scared that would happen and that Anthony would notice. I remember Anthony coming out of the car and hugging me. That was so weird since we never hug like that in France, buy it was very charming. The most charming thing, that guys in France don't do it either, is that he walked on the passenger side of the car to open the door for me! How gentleman-like is that! It made me feel so special...

Then being in the car we decided to go to Miami Beach to have diner. We drove until Anthony's hotel to park the car and walked from there to Lincoln Avenue. We didn't plan much in advance, so we didn't spend much time deciding on where to go. We chose the first nice restaurant terrace outside. I remember we had a table with a couch so we were seatted very close to each other. That was a little awkward. I was staying really close to one edge making sure nothing was going to happen too fast. I needed a little bit of time. Speaking and flirting on Skype is very different than being face to face with that person. I needed to get more and more comfortable with him at first. I don't remember exactly what we spoke about, probably still getting to know each other. But I remember that I had a mojito. Alcohol makes me dizzy very very fast, so I didn't drink too much. Like he told me later on, I'm a very cheap date - lol - We also had some nice seafood. We probably spent 2 hours there and then decided to go to a nice bar/club in the Fontainebleau Hotel.

Music and alcohol always help make people more comfortable... First of all the music was very loud so we had to be much closer to speak with each other... And let me tell you how much that helped! We were getting closer and closer to each other, and Anthony began stroking my arm softly and pulling me closer. He put his hands on my waist and I remember him being surprised of how thin it was. Apparently he loved it and commented on it. He then looked at me and told me that he really wanted to kiss me. I didn't even have time to say anything, before he actually leaned in and starting kissing me. It was a very soft and sensual kiss, and I loved it! I definitely had this butterfly feeling in my stomach - always a good sign... Maybe I was waiting for it all along. The whole night was very nice and everything was confirming the attraction we had for each other. It was as if a small wall seperating us had broken and we could finally be more intimate. It was very sundenly much more natural...

It didn't take long for both of us to get tired of the nightclubing ambiance. Since I was not asking to go back to my friends' house, Anthony brought me to his hotel. The funny part was that when we got there, he told me that the hotel he booked was newly built, and was gonna open the day after. So for the first night they gave him a kind of dark, ugly small room nearby. It was more like a freeway motel, but it didn't really matter since we just wanted to be together. We sat on the bed for a little while, cuddling and kissing, like teenagers. As we were laying together and before we went to sleep, one thing that I remember as if it was yesterday is that he wrapped his hands around me and strated scratching my back. When I was young, I loved to have my back scratched - my dad used to scratch my back every single night, and I was addicted to it. I always told him that the man that I would marry will have to do it to me. How amazing was it that Anthony knew exactly how to get me from the beginning. It was so funny that I told him this little story, and we both found that it was maybe a sign :)

Before going to bed I went to brush my teeth and he was really surprised that I had my toothbrush with me. Apparently he was not used to girls coming prepared for every situation! I spent the night with him and it felt so good...
