were there.” I have bared my heart and soul to this man I have known for a day, and I wouldn’t take back a word of it. Tears start down my cheeks, and I wipe them away with the back of my hand.
    “Can I ask you a question?” he asks.
    “Yes, of course you can,” I say, wondering what is pressing on his mind.
    “Can I take you out tomorrow? Like I said, not to a bar or a bed,” he smirks. “I’d like to take you to a nice restaurant, anywhere you would like. Money is not an issue.” Donovan’s blue eyes plead with me to say yes, as if I would say no to this man about anything.
    “Well, I have to work at the club at ten, but I get off 6:30, so it would be after then, if that’s ok?”
    My mind reels, a date with Donovan!
    “Oh, yeah. That’s perfect. I get off work at around 6:00, so I can come pick you up. But, please, let me know the place beforehand. I don’t want to be under dressed,” Donovan gives me a mischievous grin.
    I roll my eyes at him. He’s silly, but I love it. “I’ll text you, ok? But right now, it’s 2 a.m., and we both need to get up in the morning. So, go to sleep.”
    “Good night, baby doll,” Donovan already starts to drift off, his right hand draped over my side. I plant a sweet kiss on his forehead and touch his face.
    “Good night.”

I stretch my arms above my head and yawn. I roll over to look at the alarm clock and see that’s it’s just after 7:30. I roll over to the side of the bed where Donovan slept and frown when I find it empty. Then I remember that Donovan had to get up at 6:30 and go to the clinic. I decide to wake up and get my day started. I sit up on the edge of the bed and rub my sleepy eyes. Last night was so mind blowing, but it has left me exhausted. I stand up and stretch some more. I see something out of the corner of my eye, and I glance over to see what it is. There is a piece of paper with my name on it sitting on my dresser. I smile. Donovan left me something to wake up to. I unfold the letter and it reads:
    Allie,
    I can’t wait to see you tonight. I will count down the minutes untill I see your angelic face again.
    Call me when you wake up.
    XOXO
    Donovan
    My heart skips a beat. He will count the minutes untill he sees me again? Wow, he’s so sweet! I walk out of my room to grab my phone. I search for the napkin that has Donovan’s number on it and find it in the bottom of my purse. My pulse races as I dial his number.
    “Dr. Callahan here.” His greeting is a bit brash. I breathe before speaking. I haven’t heard Donovan speak like that before.
    “Hi, Dr. Callahan, it’s Allie.”
    “Good morning, doll. How are you?” Donovan’s voice softens once he realizes it’s me. I smile from ear to ear. Geez, I’m like a fourteen-year-old with her first boyfriend.
    “Fine, thank you. A bit tired and sore, though. Someone kept me up all night.”
    Donovan chuckles. “I don’t know what you are talking about.” He’s being playful. I like playful.
    “I’m sure you have an inkling as to why I was up so late, Dr. Callahan.”
    “Baby doll, I’m sorry. I won’t do it again,” he sounds serious all of a sudden.
    “Donovan, I’m kidding! Last night was amazing.” I blush as I think of us naked and tangled in the sheets. My belly tightens up. He’s not even here, and he turns me on.
    “Oh, I think it would rate last night much higher than just amazing,” Donovan says, his voice taking on that deep husky tone. God, he’s good.
    “I just can’t put last night into words. Anyway, I wanted to ask you, I don’t know many restaurants around Atlanta.”
    Donovan snorts, “That’s not a question.”
    “Haha, I was getting to that. I was wondering if you could pick the place and let me know so I won’t be underdressed.” I laugh as I repeat what he said to me last night.
    “I think I prefer you undressed. Just my opinion.” Oh, my. I hope no one is around to hear him.
    “Pervert. Just let me know, okay?” I giggle a little too
