First Date

First date.  Acceleration.  Horns honking.  Squealing tires. A sudden veer
through traffic, and I'm sliding across the seat.  My head
smashes against the passenger side window.  I see something less
than stars.  An elbow jabs roughly into my throat.  He is leaning past me,
over me, screaming, giving some guy in a silver Camaro the middle -
finger.  Curses and spittle fly.  Then, it's done.  It's as if I imagined it all.

Second date.

Ah, the lure of the Bad Boy. This was a great scene.

Hope the second date was with some one else.

Some first dates are much more memorable than others. :-D

Pheew, intense, just like a first date.

I'm so sorry! Every girl's first date MUST BE magic.

Whoa, and he got a second date? I dated his cousin, I think.

A revealing intro to what to expect on the second date and perhaps the 3rd one too if it ever materialises!

I read it as the second date didn't happen (and a good thing, too) as there was no description of it.

Certainly a telling ice-breaker..Quite a good thing to know exactly what you will be getting into.
