Benicio: ‘No you did not, please have a seat’ he instructed and she obliged. What would you like to have?
Ophelia: Nothing much just a bottle of water will do.
Benicio: ‘Alright’ he said, called a waiter and instructed him on what to serve them. After he was done, he looked at her and smiled saying ‘do you know you are beautiful?
Ophelia: ‘I hear that a lot’ she said smiling, why were you so eager to meet up with me Ben?
Benicio: Because I see you as a nice person and will really want to want to know you better.
Ophelia: ‘Is that all? Just for us to be friends’ she asked as she opened the bottle water laid in front of her.
Benicio: I want more than that if only you will let me.
