She was wobbling on heels that looked a little too big, so I offered her my seat. At first, she rebuffed my invitation, but I convinced her to stay.

One drink led to casual conversation--she'd recently been fired and I'd just attended my ex-fiancée's wedding.
Three drinks led to getting a little closer--I slid a hand on her thigh and my fingertips under the hem of her skirt.
Five drinks led to a proposition--a hotel room and nothing more.
After a mind-blowing night of the hottest sex I've ever had, I woke up alone and penniless. Turned out Sarah was looking for more--just not more of me. I should never have offered her my seat. I should never have drunk so much. And I never should have fallen asleep.
