“John, what is going on?” she asked looking at him and then back at the store.

“Well, you yourself said that you didn't have anything as fancy as what I had on, so I thought we would go shopping.”


“Yes, Really. Are you ready to do some damage?”

“Heck yeah,” she screamed leading John into the store. Evangeline pulled John into the store and all he did was allow her to drag him in there. He had hoped that she would enjoy this part of their weekend.

The store manager came out and greeted both John and Evangeline as they entered the store.

“Are you Evangeline ?” asked the store manager.

“Yes I am,” Evangeline replied looking back over at smiling John.

“It is a pleasure to meet you Evangeline I am Courtney Bergin. The store manager. We picked out a couple of dresses for you to try on this evening. John didn't know what size you were exactly so we have a couple of sizes of the same dress for you to try on.

“John McBain, if we were private right now, I would totally jump your bones” she said in a whisper in his ear with a laugh behind it.

The dresses that the store had picked out for her came out from the back on a huge dress rack. “Right this way John and Evangeline.” The store manager said directing them to an area of the store where the dresses lined up and there was seating as well as a three way mirror with excellent lighting.

“John have a seat right here while Evangeline and I get started.” She pointed to a chair for John to sit in and took Evangeline’s hand and the first dress off the rack and hand directed her to a dressing room.

As John took a seat one of the store workers came out and asked “Is there anything I can get you sir?”

“Yeah, how about a beer.”

“Okay, we can do that, I will be right back. Anything for the lady?”

“Yeah, I am guessing a martini. Thee olives.” John said to the store clerk.

As he brought out their drinks Evangeline came walking out of the dressing room in the first dress. She stood in front of the mirror and looked at John’s reaction from his reflection in the mirror.

“Do you like it?” she asked him staring at him through the mirror. Evangeline had on a stunning black dress. The dress dipped low in the front as well as in the back. It had a small slit up the left side leg that revealed her gorgeous legs. The neck line was diamond studded all the way down. She had on black stilettos to match the dress.

John didn't say a word, not because he didn't want too, but he couldn't. He was speechless.

“Lets try another one.” Evangeline said to the manager. She went back in the dressing room and came out strapless red dress The dress pushed up her chest, this was the first thing that John noticed when she stepped out of the room. There was a small whole in the front of the dress that showed some stomach and the back was cris-crossed down her back. The shows were silver with a T that came up her foot. John practically fell out of the chair when she came out of the room.

“I don't know about this one, John what do you think?” she asked him. Again he was speechless he could only shake his head up in down that he liked it. Both the manager and Evangeline laughed at his response.

Evangeline tried on a couple more of the dress but none of them seemed to work till she got to the last dress. It was a silver silk dress that hugged all of her curves. The dress was a halter dress and came to a V down her chest. Her back was bare all the way down to her lower back. When she stepped out of the dressing room into John was walking around looking at the other things in the store. He stopped mid sentence and mid stride as he say her almost glide across the floor in the dress.

“I can tell by your expression that this is the dress.” She said over her shoulder.

John took a hard swallow and finely mustered out the words “Abso-freaking-lutely.” He walked towards her took her hand and spun her around. “Man, you look I don't even know if there is a word to describe how you look. We will take it.” He said to the store manager.

“Shoes and all?” she asked.

“Shoes and all.” He responded. “Also could you ring up the first two dresses that she tried on as well.”

“John, you don't have to do that.” She said to him almost pleading him not to buy the other dresses.

“Yeah, thanks a lot for you help.” He said smiling at the store manager ignoring Evangeline’s comment.

They walked out of the store with the other two dresses boxed up as well as the other two pair of shoes. The driver took the packages from John and placed them in the trunk. John opened the door and Evangeline slid into the car in her new dress. It was 5:30 by the time they got in the car. John looked down at his watch, “Great, we are right on schedule.”
