"What a gorgeous day to take in all that Florence has to offer." I said while descending the stairs that lead out of the private resort set high in the hills and onto the busy roads of town.
People were everywhere. It was quite a change from the relaxing, calmness of De Montaine. But exciting and adventurous all the same.
"Ok, first on the list..." I looked at the list that Alfonso was kind enough to make up for me. It was kinda creepy that he would do such a thing, but I just figured that he did that for all of the guests.
"Costumer satisfaction guaranteed." I giggled. And if not, well bless his heart.
Sightseeing was very beautiful and interesting, but things got all the more interesting when I literally bumped into a very attractive Italian man near the Michelangelo's statue of David.
"Excuse me" i said frantically picking up my things that scattered on the ground from my dropped purse.
"No signora, excuse me." He said bending down, helping.
We locked eyes, god he was gorgeous. I quickly looked back down a bit embarrassed for how long we just stared at each other. I stuffed my wads of cash back in as well, hoping he didnt notice it. What kind of girl carries around that kind of money anyways?
"American." He said, as we both stood back up.
"That obvious?" I asked brushing the dirt off my bag. I wrapped it around my body, messenger style, like I should of done to begin with.
"Well, no actually. Its just all that money. Only a tourist carries around that kind of cash." He said pointing to my bag.
"Oh, yeah. I.. uh...well, you got me." I stammered.
"Well, I hope your in town long enough for me to make the accident up to you. After all your bag did get quiet a beating," He leaned in and winked.
Oh my god is he adorable or what? I tried to stay calm.
"What did you have in mind?" I leaned in right back.
"Dinner. Tomorrow night. Say yes?"
"Ok, your on."
"Alright then." He reached into his pocket and pulled out a pen and paper, jotted down his number and placed it into my hand. "Call me around 8 tomorrow night and I'll have the details."
"Very well." I said. "...And who do I ask for?" I said laughing.
"Oh, look at me. I'm sorry. Giovanni. My name is Giovanni. And, what is yours American beauty?"
"My name is Natalia. And I'll talk to you tomorrow at 8." I winked, turned around and left it like that. Gotta leave him always wanting more. I beamed.
After that I was much too excited for more sightseeing. I headed straight back to the resort.
Alfonso was there by the door. "Did you enjoy your day signora?" He asked as he opened it for me.
"Yes, very much so. Thank you Alfonso."
I got onto the elevator and a tall, slender brunette was already on. I recognized her from the brunch the other day.
"Hi Ivy." I said as I pushed the button for my floor.
"Oh, hi Natalia."
We got to talking and I told her all about my amazing day sightseeing, oh, and of course about Giovanni.
"Hey, why don't I give him a call and have him bring a sexy friend for you and we'll double?" I shrieked with excitement.
"Sounds like a fabulous idea." She said back.
I got back to my room called Giovanni and made the arrangements. This is going to be so much fun. He said not to worry about a thing. He was going to pick out the restaurant and our transportation.
"Not to worry about a thing." I huffed looking into my suitcase. "...except for what I'm going to wear."
