Lady In Waiting

20 minutes past late, hope disappearing quickly, she nurses what remains of her second lime cooler blush. The double heart necklace was an afterthought when she tossed the worthless skewered cherry. Her change purse is gaping wide, available, and a few coins ready for tender.
Lost in her thoughts and not yet aware of his presence, he unobtrusively appears, remorseful, he softly kisses the back of her neck.

Loulou at the Late Show

The panic-stricken hero she clutches for protection, himself is paralyzed in fear; his popcorn too, left in limbo.
