I unzipped the black purse hanging on my shoulder. My hand rummaged through wallet, combs, coins and keys until I found my lipstick. Taking the top off I quickly ran the stick across my lips. It was a first date and I wanted him to be interested. When I walked into the room I saw him sitting alone at a small table. He was ruggedly handsome with long curly blond hair which he wore pulled back into a ponytail. I was nervous as always on a first date. I wondered why he was interested in me. I had met his previous girlfriend and there was no way I was anywhere near as beautiful as she. Moving to Japan to pursue a career as a model, she was breathtakingly beautiful and a blonde. I was a secretary in a medical office. He had however been persistent in getting me to agree to go out with him. So there I was, approaching the man still wearing his black leather jacket. A smile spread across his face as he saw me walking towards the table.. Butterflies danced in my stomach. As I approached the table he motioned for me to sit down.
