It’s Fandango’s Flashback Friday again! Yay!

During the bus ride home, Sonya savored the days’ events in her mind’s eye.
She still couldn’t believe it actually happened. And it was sweeter, better, and…yummier… than she’d ever imagined. What made it even more extraordinary was that their paths had crossed purely by chance — a magical, mystical, fabulous twist of fate!
Sonya and Russell had always liked one another but never had the opportunity to spend any real time together. Weddings, parties, birthdays and other social gatherings is where they’d run into each other. The noise, music, and laughter made anything more than a few sentences impossible.
But today was different.
Today, Russell happened to be on Sonya’s side of town for a lunch meeting that had been cancelled at the last minute. As he was leaving the restaurant, Sonya was entering and they literally ran into one another.
Why not have lunch together since we’re both here?
One glass of wine led to a bottle which led to another. They’d ordered food, but were so busy laughing, talking and enjoying each other they’d scarcely touched it.
Eventually, there was a lull in the conversation, and that’s when Russell made his move. He leaned across the table and kissed Sonya right on the mouth. It was long and lingering, and softer than moonlight.
When it ended and Russell sat back down, Sonya could see the burn of desire in his brown eyes. She was sure he could see the same in hers.
As luck would have it, there was a charming little motel right across the street, which is where Sonya and Russell spent the remainder of their first afternoon together.
Sonya sighed a lover’s sigh.
If only he wasn’t married to my sister… but now I know why Mona smiles the way she does.
