To say things don't always go as planned would be an understatement...
I met Sarah at the airport.
And a bit shy.
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.
My flight had been delayed and I assumed hers had too. I figured why not spend the time together.
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 actually 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.
All stupid moves.
Then again I didn't expect my self-proclaimed one-night stand would screw me in more than the literal sense.
That hooking up with Sarah would jeopardize everything I've worked for.
That Sarah wasn't really Sarah--nothing could have prepared me for that revelation.
If she thinks things are over between us--she's wrong.
Turns out, fate didn't throw me the bird after all.
"Sarah" doesn't know it yet but she picked the same tropical island to escape to as I did.
Can you say--payback?
Too bad things don't always go as planned...
