Date January 23, 2009

Orchid Lounge

It's about eight-o-clock pm at the Orchid lounge. It's pretty busy, but there are a few empty tables strewn about the place. It's Friday night and customers are coming with their loved ones out to enjoy their date.

Roselyn walks in with Nicolas. She's wearing a black evening gown that covers her very well. Her hair is curled and put up nicely. She has black high heels on with her feet on the strap across her toes there are tiny little diamonds all the way across. She goes to the Hostess, "Table for two please." she says with a smile.

Nicolas comes in with Roselyn, dressed in a nice suit with a black shirt underneath the suit jacket. He looks around the area as Roselyn speaks to the hostess. A moment later, he looks to the hostess. "Reservation should be under 'Belmont'." He tells the hostess before he looks back around the area.

Roselyn gets seated and looks at the menu. "This is a nice place." she says with a smile looking at Nicolas. "I've never been here before." she says still smiling. "What is good here?" she asks as she looks at the menu. "I think I may get the Sweet and Sour Chicken. It sounds really good." she says looking up at Nicolas. "You look really nice tonight. Never thought I would see you in a suit." she says with a grin.

Nicolas sits down across from Roselyn as he smiles, nodding. He looks around the area before he picks up the menu and looks it over. "I haven't been over here either." He says, looking over the menu. "I think…" He pauses as he looks over something. "I think I'm going to get the Sesame Shrimp with the Mu Shu Duck Wraps." He says with a nod before he smiles and looks up at her. "Thanks. I don't usually dress up very often, but that doesn't mean I don't have nice clothes." He says with a smile. "You look…" He pauses as he decides on the right word to use. "stunning."

Roselyn blushes, "Thank you. I don't get to dress up like this very often, so I like to enjoy it while it lasts." she says with a grin. "So how are you?" she says looking at Nicolas. "What wine do you think would be best for our meal?" she asks with a smile still looking at Nicolas.

Nicolas smiles as he nods. "Well, you look good." He says as he sets down the menu, thinking for a moment. "White wine goes with Chicken and Duck." He says with soft chuckle. "Don't ask how I know that."

Roselyn smiles, "Thank you. That is something I don't hear very often." she says still smiling. "Okay. White wine it is. Do you have a preferred kind you like?" she asks Nicolas looking up at him while messing with her clothes to make sure they are perfect and in the right spot.

Nicolas shakes his head. "Nope. I'm not much of a white wine guy. I prefer the red, but anything is fine." He says as he leans in a bit, resting his forearms on the table. "So, how have you been?"

Roselyn smiles and nods, "Well I have to agree there. I like red wine most, just didn't know what you liked." she says looking up at him once more. "I've been alright. Not a whole lot been going on really. Just working and staying at home mostly." she says with a grin, "What about you? How have you been?" she asks looking into Nicolas' eyes.

Nicolas smiles. "Yeah. I drink red when the situation warrants it." He says as he looks at her. "I've been fine. Working on a few things mostly, but nothing too spectacular." He says as he shrugs slightly.

Roselyn nods, "Does this situation warrant it?" she asks with a smile, "That's good." she says looking at Nicolas, "So.." she says looking down into her lap for a moment then back up to Nicolas, "Are you enjoying yourself tonight? Or am I torturing you by having you come here?" she asks looking in Nicolas' eyes.

Nicolas smiles and nods. "Yeah. I think it does." He says as he chuckles before he looks around the area for a moment. He looks back at her and nods> "Yeah. I'm have a great time." He says as he looks at her. "I was actually looking forward to tonight."

Roselyn smiles, "Kool." she looks at Nicolas, "I'm glad you are having a great time." she looks into his eyes, "Really. I was as well, but I figured you were doing it just because I owed it to you. I'm happy you were looking forward to it." she says with a grin. "As long as you are happy I'm good." she says still looking at him.

Nicolas chuckles and nods. "That's good to know. I figured you were doing this just because you owed me dinner." He says with a smirk.

Roselyn smiles, "No. I was really looking forward to it as well. It took me forever to figure out what to wear, how to do my hair, and do my make-up. Typical girl stuff really, but I just wanted to impress you really to be honest." she says blushing a little bit.

Nicolas raises an eyebrow slightly as he looks at her, tilting his head slightly to the side. "Why do you have to impress me?" He asks her. "I really don't think I need to be impressed."

Roselyn shrugs, "I don't know, I just feel like I have to." she says with a small smile. "I also wanted to look good for you, because I didn't want you to think I was some kind of freak or something really." she says looking down into her lap. "I guess it's because I." she stops mid sentence and starts twiddling her fingers in her lap watching them.

Nicolas chuckles as he shakes his head. "Naw. I don't think you're a freak. Maybe a bit weird." He says the last part with a joking tone in his voice. He tilts his head slightly as she stops in mid-sentence. "Because what?"

Roselyn shakes her head, "Nothing. Didn't mean to say that, just forget I said it." she says as she looks up at Nicolas, her face a bit pink from embarassment. She looks at Nicolas' eyes, "Well.." she doesn't really know how to finish the sentence so she stops.

Nicolas smiles as he looks at her, nodding his head slightly. "Go on. You don' thave to be shy around me." He says with a slight chuckle.

Roselyn shakes her head, "No. I changed my mind. Don't worry about it." she says looking at him. "Well I kinda…" she stops and hesitate a moment then says it, "Well the thing is I kind of like you." she says quietly hoping he doesn't hear her.

Nicolas chuckles and smirks. "See, that wasn't so hard." He says as he looks at her and smiles. "I like you too." He says as he looks at her. "And I'd like to get to know you a bit more."

Roselyn shrugs, "Maybe not, but sometimes it doesn't really turn out so great." she says looking at him. She smiles when he says those words, "Really?" she asks him still smiling, "I'd like to get to know you more also." she says looking him in the eyes.

Nicolas smiles and nods as he looks at her. "Glad to hear that the feeling is mutual."

Roselyn smiles and looks at Nicolas, "Yeah. So what would you like to know about me?" she asks Nicolas. "You can ask me anything you want and I'll tell you what you want to know." she says with a grin looking up at Nicolas.

Nicolas laughs softly and shrugs. "I don't know off the top of my head, but I will probably think of something to ask you later on."

Roselyn nods, "Okay. Just let me know when you want to talk." she says looking at Nicolas. "So are we ready to order?" she asks him changing the subject.

Nicolas smiles and nods as he looks at her. "Yup. I'm ready if you are." He says as he looks around the area for a waiter.

Roselyn nods, "Yeah, I'm ready." she says with a smile. "Thank you. For coming out with me." she says looking up at Nicolas.

Nicolas looks back to Roselyn and smiles, nodding slightly. "You're welcome. I am happy to be here with you."

Roselyn smiles, "I'm glad you are happy to be here." she says looking at Nicolas. "Sorry, I can't really think of what to say at the moment." she says with a grin.

Nicolas shakes his head and smiles. "It's quiet alright. I don't mind. We can just enjoy each other's company."

Roselyn smiles and nods, "Okay. Just didn't want it to get boring or something." she says looking back up to Nicolas. She waves to a waiter, signalling that they are ready to order.
