Darius Gets Caught Offguard (Photostory)
Nikki is running a little late so Darius is shooting the breeze with Maya.
"So where are you guys going for lunch?" (Maya)
"I was thinking about that new Italian restaurant, but I'll wait and see what she has a taste for." (Darius)
"So I think that's it. We toured the ballroom, finalized the color scheme, and signed the documents. The last thing is for you to approve the menu." (Nikki)
"And I promise I will have that done and turned in by the end of next week." (Tina)
"Great. And if you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to call." (Nikki)
"Same goes for you, Celia. I know the matron of honor job can be quite stressful. Let us know if we can help." (Nikki)
"Thanks. I may take you up on that, since I will be doing everything from out of town." (Celia)
"Sounds like they are finishing up." (Maya)
"Thanks again, Nikki. I will be in touch." (Tina)
"Okay. I look forward to it." (Nikki)
"Nice meeting you, Celia." (Nikki)
Nikki finishes up on the computer as the ladies leave the office.
As Celia leaves the office, she is surprised to see Darius sitting in the waiting room.
"Darius? What are you doing here? Are you following me?" (Celia)
Nikki's ears perk up. "Darius? How does she know Darius?, she thinks.
"Celia. Nice to see you again. Are you enjoying your trip?" (Darius)
"Yes. Very much so." Celia says, seemingly in a trance.
Tina is looking at her friend and wondering how she knows Darius.
Nikki is dying to go out there, but decides not to. Those are clients and she doesn't want to do anything that will look unprofessional.
"So what are you doing here?" (Celia)
"I'm here to see Nikki. She's the woman I told you about on the plane." (Darius)
"And here I thought you were tracking me down." (Celia)
Darius chuckles, then reaches out his hand.
"Well it was nice to see you again. I hope you enjoy the rest of your stay here." (Darius)
"Thanks. I will do my best." (Celia, who doesn't seem to want to let go of Darius' hand)
"What in the world is going on here? Girl, Nikki will hurt you.", thinks Maya.
Tina notices that Celia is trying to prolong the conversation.
"Darius it is good to see you again. Celia and I have to get going." (Tina)
"Nice to see you, too, Tina. (Darius)
By this time Nikki is standing and trying to make eye contact with Darius.
"Okay, that is your cue to leave.", thinks Maya.
Darius finally locks eyes with Nikki.
"Well I've kept my lunch date waiting long enough." (Darius)
"Come on Celia. Time to go." (Tina)
