Jason had problems with hair gel. His hair looked like he was stroked by the electricity, messed up and he was unable to fix it.
“Damn!”, he yelled at himself in the mirror.
His date was probably already waiting in the restaurant. Rose was a girl he thought was worth every effort make this dating into something more. A true relationship.
“Ah, just leave it”, he said silently. He was late already. The hair will stay as it is.
On the way to the restaurant, the cab driver annoyed him with his music choice.Too loud, too aggressive. “Everything seems to be going wrong”, Jason taught.
Rose sat at the table for some time. She ordered a martini. Playing with an olive in a glass, she felt nervous. Jason was such a sweet, good, fantastic guy. He wouldn’t let her down. But still, she was nervous.
A tiny girl with freckled nose and green eyes under a bunch of curly brown hair, smart and witty. She fell for Jason on the first date. Even thinking about that, made her blush.
The entrance doors opened in a style, bumping into the wall.
Jason, just stood there, searching for Rose, not paying attention to a receptionist addressing to him.
When he saw her, he just rushed to the table.
“Hey Rose!”, he said excitedly. She gave him a kiss in a cheek. “Your hair is a surprise of a day, it’s quite interesting the way… it stands in the air”, she smiled.
Somehow Jason found that sentence not intrusive or like she was mocking him. He felt relaxed, calm. That’s why he loved being with her.
“So let’s order because I’m hungry as hell”, said Rose taking the menu.
As this was a French restaurant, all the food names were in french, with a translation beside. Jason was hasty, not trying to read it all, and he decided to make it quick and simply.
So he ordered “cuisses de grenouille”.
“Are you sure?”, asked Rose.
“Why?”, asked Jason. “Well”, said Rose, “maybe it will be the best for you to find out yourself”. She laughed so beautifully, that Jason ignored his surprise order.
The food arrived quickly. Roses dish looked delicious. He didn’t know what it was, but it looked good.
As for his order, he stopped breathing. On the plate were legs. Small legs, fried, but still, legs.
Rose’s laugh, made the people around to look at them.
“Surprised?, she asked. Oh, how he was surprised.
He touched one pair of legs. “I am not eating this. They look like they’re going for a walk!”, said Jason.
Rose didn’t stop laughing.
“Let’s go”, she said.
Exiting the restaurant, she kissed him. Deep, mind blowing kiss.
“This is for the best evening in my life”.
Jason smiled in her arms.
“Thank you, frog legs”, he thought. “You just made my life wonderful “.
