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)

"Hello."  (Celia)
"Hello."  (Darius)

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)
"Thanks"  (Celia)

"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)
"Thanks."  (Lena)
"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)

"And you brought, Mr. Handsome.  Hello there cutie."  (India)

"Let's just hope Mr. Handsome cooperates today."  (Lena)
"Well come on over to my station and let's get started."  (India)

  6. Oh, well, emotions and relationships change. Guess Darius and Nikki may have reached their expiration date.

    And I had a totally negative reaction at that lady wanting to pinch the babies cheeks. Ugh, no way I would let someone touch my baby. I used to hate when elders would pinch my cheeks. Nasty.

    1. Lololololololo.....it instantly reminded me of strangers touching my baby when he was small. I did not realize people did that..egh....and it was always the sickly or unkempt looking ones!

    2. Muff - Wow, you sure jumped to a lot of conclusions about Darius and Nikki. We will know soon. I bet you had the cutest pinchable cheeks when you were little. LOL!

  8. Hi Vanessa, Darius is so handsome, he's the one guy I'll have to add to the crowd around here (sooner of later). I love how this story is coming along, can't wait for more!

    1. billa's dolls - Yes, Darius is one of my faves. I lucked up when I got him a few years ago. A dealer still had him in her inventory, and he was on sale. He's much harder to come by these days.

  12. Confession time: Perhaps it is because I did not catch their story line from the beginning but I've never been a Darinikki (Darius + Nikki) fan. Nikki has a little too much tude and is a little too selfish for my liking. In all fairness I could be wrong about her though. I guess I'm the only one who is not shaking my head at Darius. Although, I would NOT want to see him have an affair.

    1. AG Lanc - Quick background....Darius and Nikki were dating, then they took a break. Halle came on the scene and Darius and Halle started dating. Halle was constantly traveling and not as stable as Darius wanted. That's when he realized that he missed the stability he had with Nikki. She's a hotel manager and has more in common with Darius. Darius never cheated on either lady. He broke things off with Halle then returned to Nikki. Nikki is a little selfish about the whole baby thing, but other than that, she's a really good girlfriend. We will have to see what's going on with them soon.

  13. Hmmm....an older woman, huh? They'd actually look quit nice together, they both have beautiful complexions. I do like Nikki but I can see Darius playing the field a bit. Maybe they need to step back a bit to see what else is out there. Then again...maybe it's just harmless flirting. ;-)

    1. Tracy - I think Celia is beautiful. I'm a little surprised she's not married. And that is the million dollar question. Is this just harmless flirting?

  16. She's pretty but I'm going to be mad at him if he messes up with what's her face. So who's getting married in Morristown? Did I miss that?

  18. Note to all: There were a lot of conclusions drawn from this story. I don't really know what's going to happen next, but let's dissect this post. Darius is attracted to a beautiful woman. Nothing unusual here. He is very complimentary to her. Nothing too horrible here. He's a little flirtatious, but he hasn't lied to her about anything. She asked if he was married. He said no. Now he could have at that point offered the information about Nikki, but how many men actually do that? I would say less than 10%. Now if she asks if there's a special lady in his life, I would expect him to say yes. She didn't ask that. MEN DO NOT OFFER INFORMATION VOLUNTARILY. Trust me on that one. So at the moment, he hasn't crossed the line. There's been no exchange of numbers, or asking her out on a date. Some may say flirting is crossing the line, but some people are naturally flirts and they don't mean any harm. I don't think Darius is a natural flirt. He's normally too busy thinking about business deals. I was a big flirt in my 20s and 30s. Not so much anymore. Got other things on my mind. I don't think people really know if their significant other is out there flirting or not. Some things are best left unknown.

    2. D7ana - Men rarely give you answers when they are asked directly. Giving unsolicited info must be breaking a man code or something.

    1. Ms. Leo - I guess he figures since he and Nikki are fighting already, might as well add some more fuel to that fire. He's just a little smitten right now.
