Sade’s 25th Birthday in New York was jumpin’! It was an all black attire gala at a nice lounge in midtown Manhattan. I was happy celebrating with Sade because she had been a great friend of mine since high school. She looked great in her designer black Gucci dress and matching sky-high heels. I was very impressed with the tone and fitness of her ebony legs. I felt cool in my black Sean John button down shirt and matching black baggy jeans. Dozens of people packed the dance floor, moving beneath the swirling dimmed lights as hip-hop and R&B music blared. I was sipping on C®roc and having a tªte- -tªte with one of my friends when all the guests were clapping and singing a Happy Birthday to Sade. As she was blowing out the candles, I caught her best friend taking glimpses at me. She is an olive-skinned Latina with long wavy black hair and dark brown eyes. I was almost astonished that she was checking me out. As if Sade read our thoughts, she introduced her best friend to me, Noemie. She smiled, and said hi so softly. Noemie had the sexiest voice I ever heard. It was love at first sight, and I prayed that we linked up before the night ended.
I went to the outdoor patio of the lounge near the DJ’s booth to take pictures with a few girls and dance. I was still thinking about Noemie and getting irate that I could not see her face with all these partygoers jumping around. After dancing with this short light-skinned woman with blonde hair, I walked over to the bar to get another drink. I saw Sade in the center of the dance floor dancing with her boyfriend, but no sign of Noemie. The DJ put on some new jack swing hits, and someone tapped me softly on the back. I turned around and there was Noemie. She looked so sexy in her tight black blouse that showed off her perfectly toned belly and full breasts, as well as her black tight jeans.
“Can I get this dance, Shamarie?” She asked.
“Sure, baby girl.” I answered.
I took one last sip of my vodka, and led Noemie to the dance floor. We danced so smoothly beneath the lights. Then we were grinding and dancing very sensuous. When I stared in her light eyes, it was as if our eyes ignited. The feeling I felt was indescribable, and it was as if we were lovers in the past. To my surprised, we engaged in the hottest, passionate tongue kiss ever. I closed my eyes and I felt myself floating to a world of pure bliss. It was exquisite! It was a wonderful evening!
Soon after that first meeting at the party, we were dating. Our world was full of excitement, happiness, and love. It was so rare to see us separately. Noemie was my new best friend. We went on vacations, made passionate love in exotic places; hit the gym and attended all the exciting events. We did not just shine; we illuminate the scene. For the first time in my life, I experienced a romantic life that I felt did not exist for me. Within seven months, we were engaged and I felt like one of the luckiest men in the world.
I often bragged that our love life was something out of a Hollywood movie. Noemie and I were the center of attention and the “premiere couple of New York City.” We were like Puff Daddy & Jennifer Lopez of our friends. They had commented many times on the look of contentment that is usually on our faces. Our friends dubbed us Mr. Ms. Pleasure, because we were always getting it on. I think a few of our friends were jealous of our respect, love, and loyalty to each other. They never saw anything like it before. We were like the happiest interracial couple of The Obama era!
We married within a year at the fanciest beach resort in Hawaii, thanks to the financial help of our families. Dozens of our family members and closed friends joined our celebration of becoming husband and wife beneath the orange-gold sun. It was nice to have the people we love shared this special event with us and enjoyed the warm, sunny weather. Noemie looked stunning in her blue wedding dress. She was definitely my Queen! We fed each other jumbo shrimp and vegetables. We were so happy, and our guests saw it. We danced the night away under a beautiful full moon. We concluded our wedding with a fireworks display planned by our friends. It was spectacular! Noemie and I could not thank them enough. We felt special!
We went to Capri, Italy for our honeymoon. It was amazing! We went to the renowned Blue Grotto cave, one of the greatest tourist attractions in the world. Blue is our favorite color, and we loved how a blue reflection illuminated the cavern. I felt blessed sharing this experience with my wife. I enjoyed watching her splurge and act like a girl. We also had our best sexual experience in the hotel. As we relaxed, clutching each other, the lights went out, and blackness filled the room. We were silent in our ecstasy.
I thank God that he blessed me with a woman like Noemie. I enjoyed looking at my wife everyday. I loved her smile, bright eyes, voice, and cooking! My experiences convinced me that the best things come to those who wait for it, and I feel lucky. Life is so great now! I will forever cherish the memories and the evening I saw my love at first sight.
