Maria had such fun plans for Liz's birthday......
But Michael ran into her on a scooter. How about that for an introduction?
So anxious for more, at least we'll be meeting Isabel at the ER.
Thanks

Chapter 6

Liz and Kyle made their way back to the hotel. They would meet in 90 minutes for dinner at the Bellagio. As Liz filled the tub for a nice bubble bath, her cell phone rang.

“Hi Liz, it’s Alex. Maria and I decided to let you and Kyle have your dinner alone. Someone just gave us a pair of tickets to a show at the MGM Grand. I couldn’t believe our luck. I’m sure Kyle didn’t want us tagging along. Besides we are all going to Circ de Sol tomorrow night.”

“Okay Alex, I will see later tonight. Don’t let Maria keep you out all night. I got to go. I need to finish getting ready.”

“Thank you for making the call Alex. Liz always knows when I’m lying. I just don’t want her to spend her vacation in the ER with me on her birthday.”

“I know she would be here with you if she knew the truth. Is the ice making it feel any better?”

“Maybe a little. I hope they get me in soon.”

<Stratosphere>

Liz took a bubble bath to relax. She knew that she and Kyle needed to have a talk about their future. Maybe she should treat it like a band aide and just get over with quickly. Since Maria and Alex would not be joining them, tonight would be a great opportunity. She couldn’t continue to lead Kyle on. It was the right thing to do. She was now twenty-one and should take charge of her life.

Liz took a quick shower, fixed her hair in a loose bun. She applied a little blush, eye shadow and lip gloss. She stepped into her purple dress. It fit her perfectly. It was definitely in her color palette. She put her pearl drop earrings that her Grandma Claudia gave her for her eighteenth birthday. Her look was complete. Kyle would be picking her up a few moments.

Liz didn’t have to wait long before Kyle arrived at her hotel room door. They got a cab and made their way over to the Bellagio for their dinner.

<Harding Home>

Tess was also getting ready for her date. She had made a similar decision. She was excited about the upcoming trip she had planned to explore her photography. She had a sheltered life. Once she left her parents’ home, she and Isabel shared a dorm room and later an apartment at Stanford. She moved back home with her parents after college. She was also going to make a priority to see if there was anyone else out in this big world that could make her happier than Max. There were so many positives with her relationship with Max. He was like her. She didn’t have worry about her secret. He treated her right. She loved Max but it wasn’t there was something missing. She needed to date others to see if Max was truly the one, she should spend the rest of her life with. She needed to live independently to know herself.

She was pulled out of her thoughts when Max arrived and took her to their dinner. He brought her a lovely bouquet of red roses. She felt a little guilty he was a wonderful boyfriend, why was she having so many doubts.

<The Bellagio>

“Hi, my name is Lauren, I will be your server this evening. The chef has a prepared a surf and turf special of filet with shrimp sautéed in lemon juice and coconut oil. I will give you a few minutes to review the menus. What would you like to drink?”

“We would like a bottle of champagne to celebrate my girlfriend’s twenty first birthday.” Kyle told the server.

“I would also like a glass of ice water with lemon as well.” Liz informed the server.

“I will need to see some ID for the both of you.” The server requested.

After showing their ids the server left the table.

“Kyle, can you afford this place? It would take me a weekend in tips to pay for this.”

“Don’t worry Liz. Your grandmother wanted you to have this experience. She gave me a Visa gift card to cover tonight’s dinner.”

“Wow, my Grandmother went out of her way to make this birthday special. Now I feel guilty that I will not get to see her until Christmas.”

“Liz, your Grandmother knows that you are busy with your schoolwork. You will have to Skype her when the trip is completed. She had Alex set up a video camera on her computer, so you could keep in touch.”

“Thanks Kyle, guess we better look over the menu and decide.”

The server returned to their table with a bottle of champagne. She set the chilled champagne at the side of the table. She opened the bottle and poured two glasses. She also placed the glass of ice water that Liz requested on the table.

“Have you decided on your meal?” Lauren asked the couple.

“Yes, I would like the chef special. I would like my filet median. I would like the grilled asparagus and mushrooms.” Liz told the server.

“I would like 8-ounce filet median rare with baked potato and chef’s mac and cheese.”

“Would you like an appetizer?”

“No, I’m saving room for dessert.”

“I will be back with your bread.”

At another table in the same restaurant

“Good evening, I’m Jason I will be your server for the evening. The chef has a prepared a surf and turf special of filet with shrimp sautéed in lemon juice and coconut oil. I can’t place your drink orders while you review the menu.”

“We are celebrating tonight. I would like your finest bottle of champagne.” Max told his server.

“I will need to see some ids please.” The server requested.

After seeing the IDs, the server left the table.

“Max, what do you think you are doing? You know that we can’t drink. We can’t metabolize the alcohol properly.”

“Don’t worry, Tess. I have been using our powers to change the alcohol to sugar. I had to figure out a way I could drink socially while I have been at the law firm.”

“Okay, I trust you Max. I will try. I had never thought of trying the molecular structure. Just one of many reasons why I love you.”

The server returned to their table with a bottle of champagne. Max requested to see the bottled. He quickly changed the alcohol to sugar, while the server was setting their glasses. The server, Jason, set the chilled champagne at the side of the table. He opened the bottle and poured two glasses.

“Have you decided on your meal?” Jason asked the couple.

“Yes, I would like the chef’s special. I would like my filet median with baked potato and steamed broccoli.” Tess told the server.

“I will also take the chef’s special. I would like my filet median rare with asparagus and sautéed mushrooms.”

“Would you like an appetizer?”

“No thank you.”

“I will be back with your bread.”

<Back in the Kitchen>

“Hey Lauren, you look down.” Jason asked his fiancée.

“I have a table with a young couple, probably college students. I will most likely work my butt off for a small tip.”

“You never know. I have a young couple as well but when I asked for ID, I could see his American Express card. Don’t worry, soon we will both have our degrees and we can quit these jobs. Just do you best you might be surprised.”

“Thanks, I better get back to my tables. Thanks for the pep talk.”

<Liz and Kyle’s Table>

“A toast to my beautiful girlfriend on her birthday. Liz, you are the smartest woman I know. Wishing you a very happy 21st birthday. Here is to new adventures in the year to come. Happy Birthday Darling.”

They clink their glasses together and Liz has her first taste of alcohol.

“What do you think of the champagne?”

“It’s not bad. I’m glad we are doing this. I hope Maria and Alex have a good time at their show. I’m a little sad they are not here to celebrate with us.”

“Sometimes, we need our alone time Liz. What kind of boyfriend would I be if I didn’t want to spend time alone with my girlfriend?”

<Tess and Max’s Table>

“Did you get the champagne to celebrate passing the bar?”

“Among other things. You haven’t told me about Aruba yet. Did you enjoy yourself?”

“It was beautiful. The scuba diving and snorkeling were fabulous. The amount of life under the ocean is amazing. I rented an underwater camera. I can’t wait until I get the photos back.”

“I look forward to seeing them as well. You have always had a great eye for photography. I guess all the art history class do have a practical application.”
“Thanks, Max. I have never been much of a painter myself. Photography has been a way for me to express myself.”

“So how was the bar exam. I know you passed, or we wouldn’t be celebrating tonight.”

“Yes, I passed. I did much better than I thought I would. Sometimes I feel like I was forced into this career field by my parents and our protectors. My parents wanted me to be like them and the protectors felt I may need knowledge of the law in my future.”

“I can see that. Sometimes, I think our lives have been planned out for all four of us. Sometimes, I just want to do my own thing. I feel powerless, to live my own life.”

“I didn’t what to bring you down with all this heavy talk. There is a lot to be grateful for. It doesn’t look like we will have to leave anytime soon. Our enemies have not located us. I think we can build a great life here. I propose a toast. To our futures, may they continue to be bright.”

Chapter 7

<Mercy Hospital>

Maria and Alex have been waiting for a few hours now. “Maria, I will go up a see what is taking so long.”
“Thanks Alex, I would really like to get out of here so we can enjoy this trip.”

“Excuse me, my friend has been waiting for some time. It doesn’t look like anyone is going back except for the ambulance patients.”

“Hi, I’m Isabel Evans. I apologize for your wait. We are experiencing a system wide failure of our computer system. Our IT manager is on vacation and his staff is working on the issue. I came here to tell the ER department to start taking the non-emergency patients. They will have you fill out everything on paper records.”

“I’m Alex Whitman. I’m a double major at MIT in computer science and electrical engineering. I would be willing to help your IT staff. I work part-time in the IT department at Massachusetts General.”

“Thank you, Rachel, why don’t get his friend called back next with the paper forms. Hopefully with Mr. Whitman’s help we will be able to get the electronic system up and running.”

<Back at the Restaurant>

Both tables received meals about 20 minutes later. Both couples made small talk while waiting for their meals. Max was getting nervous about asking Tess to marry him. Would she say yes? Tess was also dreading tell Max she would be leaving for her trip to Europe and Asia for photography adventure.

<Tess and Max’s Table>

“Are you finished with your meals?” Jason asked the couple.

“Yes, we both are.” Max replied to them.

“Are you interested in any our fabulous desserts?”

“Of course, am I?” Tess replied.

“We have a New York style cheesecake with fresh strawberries, a flourless chocolate cake, crème brulee, red velvet chocolate cake and mixed berry sorbet.”

“Why don’t you get something different Max and we each get a taste of the other’s dessert? I would like the Red Velvet Cake.”

“I would like the Cheesecake.”

“Would you like some coffee, cappuccino, or tea with your desserts?”

“I will take a decaf coffee with cream.”

“I would love an herbal tea.”

“Of course, I will be back shortly with your desserts and drinks.”

<Kyle and Liz’s Table>

“Are you finished with your meals?” Lauren asked the couple.

“Yes, we both are.” Liz replied to them.

“Are you interested in any our fabulous desserts?”

“I’m thinking about dessert, what are my choices?” Liz replied.

“We have a New York style cheesecake with fresh strawberries, a flourless chocolate cake, crème brulee, red velvet chocolate cake and mixed berry sorbet. The flourless chocolate cake is my personal favorite.”

“Would it be possible to have the chocolate cake with some strawberries. I love both strawberries and chocolate.”

“Yes, I can arrange that since it is your birthday. Would you like anything, sir?”

“I would like the Red Velvet Cake. I hope it is as good as my stepmother’s cake.”

“Would either of you like some coffee, cappuccino, or tea with your desserts?”

“I will take a decaf coffee black.”

“I would love an herbal tea.”

“Of course, I will be back shortly with your desserts and drinks.”

Lauren left the couple and so returned with their desserts and drinks.

“Your desserts have arrived. I’m going to leave your check. There is no rush, but the restaurant is busy, and I didn’t want you waiting on me for your check.”

“Thank you.”

“This chocolate cake is so rich and creamy. You need to try a little bit, Kyle.”

“The red velvet is good. It might be as good as Amy’s. See for yourself Liz.”
“Liz, we have been dating on and off for five years. I love you and you love me. That is why, I got us a room for the night at Circus-Circus. I think it is time for us to take our relationship to the next level. I love you and I think it is time for us move forward with our relationship. We are no longer a pair of teenagers we are adults now. I think our relationship should reflect our status as adults.”

Liz was left speechless. Had Kyle not been listening to her all these years? Just because she was now twenty-one, she wasn’t going to change her view on sex. She didn’t think she loved Kyle enough to marry him. If she didn’t love him enough for marriage, she wasn’t ready to make love to him. It was time to break up with him.

<Tess and Max’s table>

“Tess, I have something to ask you. We have been dating for two years now. I have finally finished law school and passed the bar. My life is finally moving forward. I think it is only right that I have you by my side in this life, just like the last one. So, will you marry me Tess?”

Chapter 8

<Kyle and Liz’s Table>

“Kyle, I have been thinking for some time that it may be time to end our relationship. I don’t see us getting married. I haven’t dated enough to know if you are the one. You would be the safe choice. We want different things. I’m going to continue with graduate school. I will either get a master’s in molecular biology or go to medical school. I’m not ready to make love to you if I can’t see us getting married in the future.”

“You’re breaking up with me? So, you think it okay to just string me along?”

“Kyle, I have been up front with you from the start. I didn’t think we should start dating again when you came to Boston. You told me you understood my reservations.”

“Here is the gift card Grandma Claudia gave me for tonight. I’m out of here. I will talk to you tomorrow.”

Kyle left the table.

<Tess and Max’s Table>

“Max, I love you, you are one of my best friends. I don’t know if I love you enough to be your wife. I don’t know if you really love me either. Your proposal talked about you wanting me by your side. It sounded like a business proposal. It didn’t tell me that you couldn’t imagine your live without me.

I love the time we spend together. My entire life has been dictated by others. Our protectors selected the families they wanted us to emulate. My parents had money, so I was treated like a princess. I have never lived on my own. First my parents, then Isabel as my roommate at Stanford. Serena even moved in with me after Isabel returned to Vegas. You are the only guy I have ever dated. I was going to tell you tonight. I’m leaving for a photography tour of Europe and Asia. I need to do something on my own. I need to see if I’m truly in love with you or just the idea of being your wife and queen.”

“Tess, are you sure?”

“Yes. I’m going to date if the opportunity occurs during my travels. I don’t expect you to wait for me. You can date as well. I plan to return in a year. If neither of us has found someone we can re-evaluate our relationship. I’m going to take a cab home. I need to get packed for my flight.”

Jason, the server, arrived just as Tess was leaving. He could see that he was interrupting a moment with his customers. After Tess left, he approached the table.

“Are you ready for your check, sir?”

“No, I don’t think so. You have anything stronger than this champagne.”

Jason could see the ring box on the table. “She turned down your proposal. The bar has about anything you would want. How does a bourbon sound?”

“I think that would be great. Make it a double.”

Max knew he shouldn’t drink but he didn’t want to feel anything right now. He would just get a room at the hotel for the night.

<Liz’s table>

She had stayed in control most of the night. She had only had one glass of the champagne that evening. She would only go back to an empty hotel room why not have another glass or two.

Lauren returned to her table to check on her customers. She noticed that the birthday girl was left alone.

“Are you ready for me to collect the check?”

“Thank you, Lauren. This place looks very busy tonight. I’m sure your tips are going to great. A part of me regrets that I let my friends talk me into coming to Vegas on a holiday weekend. I’m missing some great tips this weekend.”

“So, you work as a server?”

“I started busing tables in my parents’ restaurant at 13. I was waiting tables by 15. I’m still serving while a student at Harvard. I need to let you return to your work.”

“Are you okay?”

“I will be. I’m going to enjoy a glass of champagne and then head back to my hotel.”

“Please, let me know if I can get you anything else.”

<Max’s Table>

Jason had returned to his Max’s table with his bourbon. Max took one sip and let his worries go. He looked across the restaurant and saw her. She was a vision. He looked at her felt at home. She had beautiful chocolate hair. He imagined that it would feel like silk. Her expressive brown eyes looked sad. Why would she be so troubled?

The more he watched her, he more confidence he gained. He had another sip of his bourbon. He had to talk to her. He gathered his courage and walked over to her table.

“Hi, my name is Max. You looked lonely like me. I thought we should talk.”

Love how fate has put these two together......
Will they regret the rebound action?
Better the truth came out now, than later.
Thanks
