If perfection had a face, it would be Tyler Henderson's.
If perfection had a body, it too, would belong to Tyler.
I saw him, sitting all alone, dressed in all black with a shiny
black object, soon to be identified as his cell phone, in his
I know it sounds stupid and childish but I actually screamed a
little under my breath when I first saw him.
I had to hand it to Elle; she may have really done it this time.
I stood from a distance to observe him so that when I got up
close I wouldn't be as incoherent.
He had on black shiny shoes, dark washed jeans that were pre
washed and had that expensive worn look, a black turtleneck and
curly black hair. It was a little long, maybe to his neck, and
looked totally natural. His eyes were a dark grey and he had
muscles, but only slightly.
I self consciously smoothed my dress and walked over.
He immediately stood up and pulled out my chair for me, "You must
be Adylinn?" he inquired.
I blushed, "Yes I am. And you are Tyler?"
"I am so so so sorry I was late. I didn't realize, and work held
He politely held up a hand to stop me from going further, "It is
quite all right Miss Ady. I trust we will have a fine time right
now and forget the past?"
I stared into his eyes, maybe it was because I was all shaken up
by his looks and Carol's confession, but I swore I saw a flash of
darkness in his eyes. I blinked quickly and looked at his smile
and perfectly white teeth, I mumbled, "Mhm sounds lovely," and
continued to stare.
He chuckled slightly and snapped his fingers. A waitress
practically ran over to him. She stood very close to him,
smoothed her apron and said, "May I help you?"
He smiled in a way that almost fainted the poor girl, "Why yes
you can. I have already ordered, but this lovely lady has not."
He nodded towards me.
Again, I blushed as I ordered the Chicken Parmesan and an iced
tea. While we were waiting for our food I decided to attempt to
speak, "So, Tyler, what do you do for a living?"
He leaned slightly forward to give me his undivided attention,
"My brother and I own a little business," he said.
"What business? Maybe I've heard of it?"
He laughed silently, "No, I'm sure you haven't. It's very small
and we don't get much business. We work mainly with the extremely
wealthy; we do insurance type work you could say."
I nodded and he looked at me, "What do you do Adylinn?"
"Me? Oh, I…I'm a real estate agent."
"I see I see," he said intently.
I struggled to change the subject, "How did you and your brother
start your business?"
"Our father did, when he died it became ours. It's a nice one; I
think you'd like to visit the office sometime,"
"The office?" I asked, because, really, who wants to visit
He smiled, "It's on the beach, very nice."
He was a tad arrogant, I noted. But then I mentally slapped
myself. He was perfect, I was making up excuses. I had waited
too long for a guy, now a decent one comes and I'm criticizing
him within the first hour? Get a grip Ady!
"Well then, I'm sure I'd love it," I gushed.
Our food came and we ate. It was a nice meal and we made small
talk as we ate. Only once did his phone vibrate from within his
pocket. He reached for it mechanically and glanced at the screen.
He held up his index finger to me, indicating me to hold on, and
flipped it open.
"Hello?�Bryan, how did it go? Any news?" Tyler fired questions at
I heard a few mumbles and a satisfied laugh from Tyler's mouth
before he said, "Yeah I'm with her now. Well of course she
doesn't!�Listen, I got to let you go. I'll be home later. Bye
He hung up and picked back up his fork. He glanced at me and
said, "Bryan called. Standard stuff."
I nodded nonchalantly. But panic struck me. What did Bryan say to
him? What did they say about me?
I hoped he liked me.
Within the next hour his phone rang constantly. He politely
ignored most of them. I felt jealous that no one had called me
and excused myself to make an "important call"
�I called Terri and told her about how perfect Tyler was. Elle
was with Bryan tonight so I didn't want to call her. Terri seemed
preoccupied though, probably by ER, her all time favourite drama
that I absolutely hated with a passion. I sighed and flipped my
phone shut. I slowly walked back to the table and sat back down
across from Tyler.
He dropped me off at my home a half hour later. He didn't kiss
me, or try anything. This, I assumed was out of politeness, but I
still couldn't help being a bit upset. He was so beautiful. I
wanted to kiss him.
I sighed and walked inside. I collapsed onto my bed, exhausted by
the day, and fell asleep.
