A Common Sip of Wine
The train was headed back to the hotels and Janette and I started to think about our next move and how we should turn the diamonds in to the local authorities, keep them and run away to a remote island, or give them to Mr. Chow and his Fung-fu thugs. Despite that uninvited guess, the look on Janette's face was calm and pleasing. I was happy that she came along for this ride and I had the opportunity to get to know her a bit more. I ordered a reserved bottle of wine to help us ease the trip after a long day. Friday has taken it's toll on us all, even Mr. Chow. I can see the stress on his face and if he find's out I have been playing with his mind during the entire trip, he might unleash a series of blows that I may not be able to recover from.
A Picture’s Worth
Who said it was old-fashioned and tagged it to be a "simp" to admire the ways of a woman's beauty? To hold her hand as she is walking down or up the steps. To send her flowers just to say you care and to let her know that some men still do the small things, just to send a message, or to even encourage.
Behold, the Ebony Male
The system gained momentum from the west as the drops increase. As if anyone else needed additional motivation to get back on the train after the most senior woman on the train gave Mr. Chow and LeTron the most embarrassing lashing of since the great 80s. She claimed her role as the mother of the train with her sharp Brit twist of words and a face of many lessons and harsh stories. However, she was highly respected and Mr. Chow and his thugs appeared to be civil by showing respect to her words. We all sat there like quite little school kids as Mr. Chow gave me a mean look as a drop of blood escaped from his nose, causing damage to his Super 400-count sport coat. I wanted inquire about his tailor, but I knew posing such a question would eliminate my serious tone after putting him to shame in a short and quick sword match.
The Sexiest Woman
We all know our days are numbered. The same amount of time is given to us all in one day. This is very important because what we do in our 24, makes us or breaks us! The things we say, may ever lift us up or hold us in shame. Our words may even bring joy to others and sometimes crumble their very way of life. So I will take these short three minutes to tell you how sexy you are. This is only three minutes, but I hope the things I say can carry you until my next compliment.
Showdown with Mr. Chow
The clouds and the sun started to play with each other as the day grew old, and the first stop on the tour was coming to an end. The sky took a specific tint and started to dim in color. By this time, despite the settle demands and intimidation of our unwanted guess; I was still at awe for having such a wonderful woman in my company. A light rain came down and I grabbed a nearby, overly-priced umbrella and Janette said, "Never mind! Just let rain fall!" I didn't want her to melt as I looked into her soft eyes and was lost just for that short moment. Her lips were as smooth as silk and her smell was as natural as out doors, with a tint of Tom Ford left but the events from today ran quite a test on the fragrance. She was quite the sight and the true definition of beauty with every mark of imperfection was just an enhancement of her natural beauty, which was addition to the attraction.
The Napa Train Disturbance
"Now What?" as if I was surprised with the events of what is turning to be a very long day and now the ninjas from GI Joe decides to jump on the train. The lead one, with his Asia accent, started to speak. "Ladies and Gentlemen, I brings me displeasure to disturb such an late afternoon of elegance. However, my organization has suffered a grave inconvenience." He slowly stalks the isle, looking and scanning faces for fear and he continues with his opening monolog. "At about 1:15, Pacific Standard Time, some materials were displaced from our organization and we plan to recover those materials within the next five hours....." he paused and got closer to a senior passenger and said, "or estates will be executed and Will testaments be honored."
In the Presence of Danger, You give Me Coolness
"Aww, Mister Ebony Male! Fried chicken and wine is not a good paring at all" as the assassin walks by us with a smirk on his face. I kept my cool and allowed him to get his joke in. After all, I was still thinking about a plan that would harm less people and still get away with a gab full of diamonds. Janette and I haven't even decided on that but I guess we shall let this all play out. The assassin extends his hand to me and says, "My name is Chow, we got off on a bad start! I am a business man, trying to accomplish a goal." I extended myself and said to Mr. Chow, "You have an unusual line of business, Sir! Disturbing tour trains and putting fear into a distinguish group of people" Mr. Chow start into his pitch again, "Do not look at us as assassins, Sir. Look at us as people with a high desire to accomplish a goal and we will be on our way when to goal is met! Hopefully with no disappointing events, and life can resume, and you and your beautiful..... " then Janette gave him one of those stare downs and said, "Excuse me, I have to go to the powder room.
How many Slow Jams will it Take
When I'm not writing about you, I'm writing about you! No one believes in this type of stuff but hard-lovers and hopeless romantics. Nonetheless, I will keep rolling my dice and checking my heart twice. Just to see if thing are alight. I can see the perfect scene with you and I, listen to some Babyface, and even slowly rolling our heads to the melody and the lyrics of his words. Words could never capture the complete feeling of the moment, but what am I thinking? People don't do this anymore.
Diamonds, Decisions and plenty of Vines
That train seemed so far away and Janette asked me to carry her bag. That bag was so heavy and I was on full alert and noticing the man still following us. Every surrounding noise was at a higher pitch as my senses grew greater and the mixture of fear and excitement was racing through my veins. The stranger got closer as I heard his footsteps of his Cole Haan shoes. The stranger said, "Mr. Dobbins, is that you? I'm Clyde from the Philly sessions! What, has it been 4 years since that project?" Our tense postures relaxed as Janette punched me in the arm.
For the Sun had to Stop Shining!
The true arrival of beauty extraordinaire, some men can't help it and other wonder why they stare. There is beauty and truth within all the elements as the Fire, Earth, Water and Wind was an untouchable creation. One look at her smile hits the heart with an instant destination.
The Love Express to Napa and Diamonds to Match!
We took an Uber to the BART station and made a quick stop by her loft to pick up an overnight bag just incase the trip experienced an unexpected extension. Conversation was filled with anticipation as we both searched for things to look forward to on our sudden excursion. I smiled as she pinched my cheek and gave me a look of comfort. I felt good because Janette did not seem like the type that would let her guard down so fast, let alone run off to wine country with a man she met just hours ago. Nonetheless, I enjoyed her free spirit and I wanted to capture the moment by making the best of it and showing her a good time.
Extended lunchtime, turned into an Early Day
The market was uncommonly slow, or we had a great head start on the lunch flow. I requested a soft Ellington/Coltrane piece to ease the mode and relax “Ms. Coffeehouse”. Pulled back a chair and motioned for her to relax and unwind. The server came up and presented a temporary plate the chef was preparing, just for today. Her eyes gave a glossy look as her level of defense lowered and we started to order. I took the fish, and she grabbed a Cobb Salad. We took all the time in the world trying to pair a wine with a simple lunch.
