Darius Heads Home (Photostory)
Darius has been away for the past two weeks on business. He's finally heading back home. He was happy to have the break. He and Nikki have been arguing for the past couple of months. Every little thing seems to set them off.
"Would you like something while we're waiting?" (Stewardess)
"No thanks. I'll wait a little bit." (Darius)
"How long before we take off?" (Darius)
"We're waiting for one more passenger, who is supposedly on the way to the gate." (Stewardess)
"I'm here. I'm here." (Celia)
"Welcome aboard. Let me show you to your seat." (Stewardess)
*Damn*, Darius thinks to himself
"Here's your seat. I'll be back in a few minutes to get your coat. I need to let the pilot know you are here." (Stewardess)
Celia puts down her bags and starts taking off her coat. Darius wants to be a gentleman and get up to help, but he's afraid to get too close. He's finding himself incredibly attracted to her. He makes the offer anyhow.
"Need help with that?" (Darius)
"No. I think I can manage." (Celia)
Moments later, Celia is happy to finally be in her seat.
"Whew, I am exhausted. I'm not much for traveling. The long lines at security, taking off your shoes, and on top of that, it takes forever to get to the gate. This airport is huge!" (Celia)
"What about you? Do you travel much?" (Celia)
"Yes. My business takes me out of town pretty frequently." (Darius)
"What kind of business are you in?" (Celia)
"I'm a real estate developer." (Darius)
"That sounds like fun. I'm Celia, by the way." (Celia)
"Darius. So do you live in Morristown?" (Darius)
Before Celia can answer, the stewardess stops by to pick up her coat.
"I'll put this in a safe place for you. We will be taking off soon." (Stewardess)
"So where were we? Oh that's right you were asking me if I lived in Morristown. No, I don't. My best friend is getting married and I'm the matron of honor. We're meeting to do some wedding planning." (Celia)
"Well congratulations. When's the wedding?" (Darius)
"Not until spring. Are you married?" (Celia)
"Me? Oh no." (Darius)
"What about you? Is there a Mr. Celia somewhere." (Darius)
Celia starts laughing. "No, there's no Mr. Celia." (Celia)
Just then, the stewardess comes across the intercom.
"Attention passengers, Flight 338 to Morristown will be leaving momentarily. Please make sure your seatbelts are buckled and your belongings are properly stored." (Stewardess)
"I guess I better buckle up." (Celia)
"Yes, we wouldn't want anything to happen to you." (Darius)
"If I didn't know better, I would think you were flirting with me." (Celia)
"But I'm sure I'm old enough to be your.....auntie." (Celia)
They both start laughing.
"Well that's not saying much. Aunties can even be younger than their nephews and nieces." (Darius)
"Don't let the smooth skin fool you. I'm sure I have quite a few years on you." (Celia)
"I've always been told, never to ask a lady her age, so I won't go there. I will just say you look damn good, whatever your age." (Darius)
"Well I'm flattered." (Celia)
We will check back in on these two.
Meanwhile back at The Mane Event hair salon....
Melanie returned at the appointed time and Kara is about to wash and set her hair.
India is straightening up her station as she waits for a new client.
And there she is. The new client is Lena. She's been doing her own hair since she arrived in town. She can finally cross finding a new hairdresser off her list.
"Hello. Welcome to Mane Event." (Kara)
"Ohhh and you have a little one. I'm going to come squeeze some little cheeks soon as I can." (Kara)
"Great, you made it." (India)
"Let's just hope Mr. Handsome cooperates today." (Lena)
"Well come on over to my station and let's get started." (India)
