Izaiah couldn’t help but remember that disastrous date at the Stargazer Lounge he had a couple years earlier. His brother had set him up on that one.
She had been a nice girl, but the date had not gone well. He was really hoping that things went much better this time. Especially since he had something big planned for Callie.
They sat and chatted for a bit. He knew she wasn’t able to drink any of the alcohol so he tried to hold off also. He didn’t want her to feel left out.
They sat talking and cuddling from time to time. It was turning out to be a perfect evening. So far at least.
When she excused herself to use the lady’s room, he got himself a drink to calm his nerves. The rest of the night could go great, or it could turn out terrible. It would only take one word to turn it either way.
He finished the drink as he saw her walking back. He smiled and walked over to her.
“Is it hot in here or is it just me?” He pulled his shirt off. He knew it was just nerves, but it was pretty bad.
“Are you okay? Do you want to go home and lay down? I hope you aren’t coming down with the flu or something.”
Callie started for the elevator so they could go home. Once she realized that he wasn’t with her, she turned around to find him.
They couldn’t wait to get home and celebrate.
