Chapter 9

As he walked through the hotel lobby David marveled once again at the amount of snow that fell over night. “Hope she makes it.” he thought. He could not believe how much he was looking forward to seeing Sophie again “That is if she makes it through the damn snow!” He breathed a sigh of relief when he saw a green MDX waiting for him in front of the entrance.

Sophie greeted David with a huge smile and a shy good morning. He was having none of that. Reaching over to her, he brushed his thumb over her cheek, chuckling over her immediate blushing, he leaned in for a proper kiss.

She felt her cheeks burning as he touched her, then the sensation of his soft warm lips on hers took over. The grumbling of his stomach brought them both back to reality. Laughing, David leaned back in his seat “So where is that breakfast you promised me“

“Mmmm, Ridgewood “ okay Soph get your mind back. It was just a kiss, yeah and the Mona Lisa has a frown on her face.

“Will we be able to get there in this snow?” he asked.

“Sure, I’ve gotten to work through weather much worse than this. Also the roads are already getting cleared” Sophie replied, starting the SUV and pulling out of the parking lot.

They talked while she drove them, and before they knew it, they were parking by the post office across from the “Country Pancake House” in Ridgewood. Surprisingly, the place was half empty and they were able to get a table by the window. Laughing over the 80 plus choices of the pancakes on the menu they made their selections and placed the order. The waitress brought them their coffee and hot corn bread with chocolate chips and left them alone.

Taking a sip of her coffee, Sophie let her eyes wonder over the man seated across the table from her. He was wearing a black sweater with a silver peace sign necklace peaking from the V-neck, his eyes were twinkling like two bottomless blue pools, and those straw colored curls were just perfect. Unable to resist, she reached over the table and gently pulled on one the curls, straightening it then releasing it and allowing it to spring back.

David looked at her stunned “OK, What was that all about?”

Sophie giggled as she replied “ Sorry, but I’ve wanted to do this for the longest time. Call it a fan’s fantasy.”

David could not hold back a smile as he shook his head “You are sooo gonna get payback for that!”

“I’ll take my chances” she laughed as their breakfast arrived. They dug in and made their way through the enormous portions.

His breakfast done with, David leaned back and watched Sophie finish her coffee. “Sooo, what does a man have to do in this neck of the woods to get a Hanukah dinner?”

“Well, he could always order out from the Kosher Nosh and hope that they will deliver…or he can find himself a nice girl who will cook him one” she replied.

“Are you a nice girl….Sophie?”

She almost choked on her coffee laughing. "I could be...."

“So what time do you want me to come over tomorrow?”

Hell yeah, springing the curls is a fan's fantasy :)

And she may be a "nice girl" but will he behave?

Go Sophie to have a clear head to take advantage of the situation. *Jealously shakes head* Can't wait to see what happens next!
