“And now we have a newcomer to Scarlett's. Gentlemen, please welcome Isabella!” The woman's voice sounded like porno and bullshit. I plastered a smile on and stepped out into the blue light on the small stage.
I took a deep breath and willed my feet not to tremble. Glancing around, I could make out some faces in the crowd. There was a distinguished looking man with graying temples and a sketchy leer, a group of frat guys in matching t-shirts with a pitcher of beer, several blue-collar workers pulling on their Budweisers, waiting impatiently.
Then I saw him - my playmate. The man was wearing a black button-up shirt and loosened tie, his wavy, blond hair disheveled, the ends flirting with his collar. Even from my position on the stage, I could tell he was undeniably handsome. He sat ramrod straight at the tip rail, barely glancing up from his drink, except to speak to his friends, one of whom had an unruly shock of bronze hair and a crooked grin, and the other looked... well, he looked like a douche - polo shirt, khakis, perfectly gelled spiked hair and a mug of beer. I decided then and there to ignore that one for the rest of the night.
My smile became genuine as the first notes of The Flys Got You Where I Want You drifted through the club. The song was one of my favorites. I began to move to the soft music, glancing at Tie Guy. As the music continued, he looked up and began to watch. I smiled brightly at the response. That's why I picked this song, what I was aiming for, I knew it would get someone's attention.
