Chapter 8

Sophie turned to David and smiled “So…what time do you want me to pick you up?”

He laughed and shrugged his shoulders “Ten should do!”

“Ten o’clock!” She rolled her eyes…”that’s not breakfast….that’s brunch!”

“Works for me!” he laughed.

“Ok, Ok…I’ll let you have your beauty sleep! But I have to warn you…the place I have in mind for us for tomorrow fills up quickly, so be prepared to wait!”

“What kind of place is that?”

“Oh, only the one that serves the best pancakes in Bergen county…or maybe even in the whole New Jersey!”

“Well that’s an offer I can’t refuse!” David said imitating an exaggerated Italian accent.

Sophie laughed at him and started to drive back to the hotel. As they drove, David reached for her cell phone that was sticking out of her purse and chuckling at the smirk charm proceeded to punch few numbers. When his own cell rang few moments later, he quickly typed something into it and returned Sophie’s cell to her purse.

Seeing her raised eyebrows, he laughed and explained “I just took yours and gave you mine…cell numbers I mean”

She nodded and pulled up to Hilton’s entrance “You’re home…I guess..”

The last thing David wanted to do was get out of that SUV… With a deep sigh, he opened his door…then quickly reached over to her and kissed her gently on her lips…

“See you tomorrow Sophie.” He said as he left her car and went into the lobby.

“What has just happened? Did David Bryan just say that he wants to see her again? And did she just says yes to having a breakfast with him!?!? What was she thinking? AND DID HE JUST KISS HER!!!! Could this be actually happening to her? Or did she just have an incredible day dream?”

Sophie did not remember getting home. But as she sat in her kitchen, ignoring loudly complaining Sasha, she reached in her purse and grabbed her cell phone. She scrolled through her contact list and almost dropped the phone! There it was! An entry with name David and a number with a 732 area code next to it!!! Nope, she did not dream it!

She fed her cat, went through her usual bed time routine, set her alarm for eight am, and went to sleep. Next morning, when Jon’s voice woke her up, Sophie flew out of bed and stopped dead in her tracks. She inched toward her bedroom window and peaked through the blinds. There was at least a foot of snow on the ground! Hallelujah!!! She won’t have to go to her parent’s house for Hanukah tomorrow! The only thing she had to worry about now was getting to the other side of her town to pick up David on time.

At ten a.m. she was waiting in her car by the entrance of Woodcliff Lake Hilton.

As always, I loved the new chapter. I just added it over on my blog, I can't believe that somehow I forgot it! Anyway I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who wakes up when Jon sings to her :-) Beats the beeping of an alarm clock any day! And could she be taking him to the Pancake House? YUM! I was up at Tice Farms on Tuesday, I think, and I was hoooooooping for a new chapter! And like Hath said, "Bring on Breakfast!"

Hath, I learned from the Best LOL!

And could she be taking him to the Pancake House?
Rachel, is there any OTHER place to eat breakfast? LOL?

Thank you for reading and for your comments! This story was originally meant as a Temptation of the month challenge entry, but it seems that Sophie has been growing on me (and my David Muse is still whispering naughty ideas in my ear) so I may take it beyond the originally planned 10 chapters.
