Lindsey Falco (The Elusive Master)
Control is an illusion. Especially when a man is trying to pick up a woman.
Most men actually think they chose me instead of the other way around.
Influence though, is another matter.
It was during the intermission of a dance performance when a man of influence ordered a Chardonnay for me. It was my first time trying it, but when I heard the husk in his voice after he put his mouth next to my ear, whispering how the wine tasted off my lips, I lost all interest in whatever else any bar had to offer.
I gave him the go ahead, but he was a tease and stretched the night out with a walk after the performance before we returned to his car.
Circumstances precluded a night spent together though and he wore the saddest puppy dog eyes I’d ever seen when he asked to make it up to me.
I could tell right then and there what he was after. My answer was, “No”.
It’s just…better this way for the both of us because I’m not here to find the love of my life. My mother did and I saw what it did to her.
I can’t let that be me.
BEHIND THE STORY INSIGHT:
Lindsey Falco is a literary self-portrait of who I was in my 20’s.
I was learning the hard way that the tools I used to survive childhood weren’t going to get me through adulthood.
