This is about a girl who spends her day alone until she sees this guy who caught her eye. He seems to be charming, sweet, and seductive but will all that stuff be real or fake? Read to find out if this is bittersweet or just her imagination.

"Table for two." a waiter said while pointing at the white couple with one wearing a suit and the other wearing a red sweater with jeans. 
 
They looked so happy together that they could be in a picture in a magazine. I couldn't imagine myself being the one in a couple like that, but if I keep dreaming, I could be the lucky one of these days.
 
"Table for one," said the girl with a red shirt on and fancy black pants.
 
She pointed at me as she took out the one menu and one pair of utensils that they had. I followed her to the table near the window. As I realized that this was going to be the spot, I would be depressed as fuck in. Why do I have to be in a place to make me remember why I am alone? I asked the waiter to give me another seat to sit in. She agrees and has me wait for another table to clear.
 
As I waited for any seats to be available, I looked towards the side and saw a nice young man sitting right across from me. I tried to keep my cool so I won't look like a total idiot, but I couldn't stop myself. His dark brown eyes and chocolate skin made me grave for some dessert, and his nice kissable lips made me want to get the whipped cream. Man, his presence was so dreamy that I had to pinch myself. He was like a creamy chocolate cake with sprinkles on top.
 
I tried to make myself do something more productive, but it didn't work. I even tried to read the menu even more, but that got boring after a while. As soon as I looked up to see this man again, his eyes were on me. I couldn't believe that he even looked my way, let alone was staring at me. I saw him nod his head as if he wanted me to come over. I picked up my menu and even my utensils and went right over to his table. I know that sounds pretty pathetic, but he did give me the sign to head towards his way.
 
"Hi, my name is Michael; I couldn't help but notice you walking through the door. You have such pretty eyes."
 
I gave one big smile as soon as he said that. I couldn't believe his chocolaty goodness even notices my eyes let alone if I even exist. I gave a great big smile as he carefully sat me down. He pulled out my chair as I took off my coat and then pushed my chair in for me. I couldn't believe that all of this was happening today. Usually, I am a lonely bat that sits by here and reads twilight books. But right now, I have a date, and sitting by the window doesn't bother me anymore. I sipped a glass of water as he sat down in his chair. He seemed so seductive and charming that you would change your underwear in five seconds.
 
"Thank you so much for this."
 
He looked at me while drinking his soda.
 
"No problem, you should thank yourself for being so beautiful."
 
I smiled again, covering my face from blushing too much.
 
"Oh, stop it. You are gentlemen."
 
He nodded his head and accepted my compliment, knowing that he can smooth talk to anybody even if their dad was there. I felt a little nervous as his confidence was very reaching, but I just let that go and enjoy being in his beautiful presence. As soon as we were connecting, the waiter came rushing in to take our orders. She looked a little depressed because she was working but covered it up with a fake smile.
 
"Hey, you guys, do you want to take your orders now."
 
She talked to us in a calming; voice and quickly snatched our menus to get our food ready. As she left, we kept staring at each other. We barely said anything to each other, but our eyes did most of the talking. We talked for hours and hours as if we were close friends. We both shared secrets that we kept for years and told each other our greatest fears. Things started to get closer than usual, and both decided to leave the restaurant. We both headed towards the front desk and paid for our dinner. I offered to pay for my food, but he stopped me and took out his wallet instead.
He watched me intensely as he drove me all the way home. I could tell the sexual tension was rising but had to be calmed down by my common sense.
 
"Have you ever had a Fantasy?"
 
I looked at him to wonder what did he mean?
 
"A fantasy of what?"
 
"Of what they have in movies but fail to get it in real life."
 
I gave in a big deep breath while knowing what he was saying. I always wondered why things don't work out as they do in the movies,  but I never understood.
 
"Yeah, of course, my whole life. But we just get confused from real to fake."
 
He touched my hand and looked into my eyes. I put my hands ever so softly while brushing my hair out of my face.
 
"Yeah, that's why all my relationships fail."
 
"For what?"
 
"For thinking they are real when they are fake. Sometimes I wonder if love exists."
 
"I know right as if it is invisible."
 
We both agreed that stuff in movies is not what they seem to be, and if they are, we wouldn't be here in this situation. We both looked at each other and saw love. We kissed each other on the lips and touched so softly that we were both a collaborated dessert. Our souls combined until he stopped me and took me into his house. He brings me into a room filled with roses and champagne. He sat me near the bed as he took off his shirt. He looked like a healthy yet chocolaty combo. I took off my jacket and unzipped my pants. I got a little nervous again but calmed down until he kissed me again.
 
"Are you ready?" He says as he kneels over.
 
I thought quickly to myself if I was ready, so I took off my pants and decided to go with the flow. As soon as all clothes were off, we headed towards the bed. As we were on each other, two girls came out naked with Champaign and a wine glass. I was so surprised that I thought that this was a joke. I went to pick my stuff up and leave until he gripped me and said.
 
"Want to join my fantasy?"
