Of course that gave Brent the “green light” and once he asked me to dance everyone stayed away and began their own conversations. Once I was dancing with Brent he had me. He kissed me slightly on the cheek at one point. I was startled but then almost as a reaction I started to play with his hair on the back of his head. At one point we looked at each other and I felt that momentum to kiss but we held back and just smiled at each other.
“The team” soon departed and walked across the street to our hotel. I am not sure if this was planned but Brent’s room was close to mine but on a separate floor from the rest of “the team” so he was able to walk me to my door. Brent said “we should probably talk about this.”
I should have known what “we should probably talk about this” meant but I was drunk and I was not really thinking about consequences so I invited him in. I got a Sprite and some M&M’s out of the mini bar, took off my high heels and sat next to Brent on the edge of the bed. He leaned back a little and put his arm behind me and then proceeded to tell me I was his fantasy woman and that he had thought about me since the day we met almost 4 years prior. To say he “had me at hello” would be an understatement. This was “it,” to be someone’s fantasy, to be the center of their universe was what I sought. Here and in Brent’s presence I was exciting, engaging, intelligent, and felt sexy – I wasn’t the person irresponsibly spending away all of our money! I can’t really remember too much more about the conversation but soon we were kissing and there was no going back.
