It was the morning after the surprise show up of Dimitri at Briana’s door. She had awakened to the sun shining through the curtains in her hotel room and the sound of people in the streets getting ready for New Years. Today was the day that Dimitri said that Briana and him would meet up again, which really excited her. Although he was still a perfect stranger, Briana had never felt more overjoyed to be with such a person.
The people below in the streets began to get louder and Briana came to conclusion that it was probably time she got ready and begin her celebrating. With a wisp of energy, she jumped out of bed and raced over to her neatly folded clothes she had laid out the night before. She gracefully put them on and then paced herself into the bathroom where she began to do her hair.
When getting all dolled up, Briana grabbed her coat off of the Swede chair by the TV in her room. She put it on and then grabbed her purse and strolled out the door. With excitement and butterflies in her stomach, she pushed on the gold plated doors of the lobby and walked out onto the sidewalk.
The air was filled with the smell of cologne and perfume, along with the sweet aroma of dough from the coffee shop and the cooked hotdogs on the side street cart. People were carrying shopping bags and in a delightful mood. The atmosphere felt great and so did Briana. Without hesitating, she put one foot in front of the other and began to walk down the sidewalk. After walking for a bit, she reached the square, where already hundreds of people were gathered to watch the ball drop that night.
She was so excited! Not only for that but she also got to see Dimitri tonight. She didn’t know where the best place to hang out would be, so she lightly walked over to bar that seemed as though was not to rowdy. She walked in and sat down at the counter and waited for service. While waiting an unsatisfying feeling came across her. She began to wonder if she would even see Dimitri tonight. She really wanted to but how would they meet up and she felt like it wasn’t going to be real.
But with her stomach growling she tapped on the counter ordered “Cheeseburger and fries please.”
