A bubble of laughter pasted her full pink watermelon scented lips, filling the dingy bar that was partly falling apart including the stools we sat in. A few sketchy people glanced our way, but they quickly engulfed themselves deeply in their own drinks. Although my own drink was left forgotten as I stared at her, the most beautiful creature I have ever known. Her hair was a rich shade of midnight brown, it flowed lose in ripples down to the middle of her back. Her oval face had high cheekbones with a straight nose and beaming blue eyes that were framed by a scatter of hair that was hanging the left of her face. She turned her head slightly to the side and stared at me with a curious expression as her smooth voice asked
"What are you staring at?"
I felt my mouth tug upwards and reached my hand to touch the side
of her face, as I did a soft warmth spread against them.
She smiled with a perfectly straight row of white teeth and placed her soft pale hand gently over mine. She had a tortured look in her eyes as she said.
"Only on the outside."
I pulled her against me tightly against my chest and wrapped my arms around her. At first her body was ridged against me but it slowly melted into mine. I knew barely anything about her other than her name Alisa I wasn't even sure it was her real name, but I was sure of one thing. I love her.
