Girls night, part deux

As their time at the swanky wine bar was sated in a post dessert glow, the lovely trio became a lovely duo ready for the late evening festivities taking place on the grassy lawn over at the St. Exspendy hotel. The little one was excited introduce her comrade to the good time that is moving to the rhythms of the brazilian band with the rest of the scene under the starry canopy of cerulean sky. And, of course, she was hoping to see the Adonis from earlier that evening (because, really, where else would he be if he was hip and with it?). She led the way through the glowing lounge area, and out to the crowded patio and the grassy lawn swarming with bodies moving enmasse around the band.

"Where do you want to go?" she asked her friend, as they stood above the lawn. "This side of the band or the other?"

"Let's go to the other side," her friend replied, looking mildly nervous about busting a move out in the sea of other movers and shakers.

Once they has assumed their positions close to the music, and there was grass between their toes, she kept scanning the crowd, waving hello to the people she knew. As they grooved on with the best of them, and she had begun to forget her aforementioned focus, it was then that she saw him.

"Ohmigawd! he is here!" she laughed to her friend, with a big grin.

"I never got to see him at the restaurant," her friend replied, trying to figure out who she was so excited about.

Ah, how she loved these seemingly Carpe Diem moments that were known to others as ballsy, when she would throw caution to the wind and go for it. She motioned with her hand to follow, and said, "Let's go say hi..."
