Michelle & Benjamin's First Date

Benjamin has come to pick up Michelle for their first date. Krystal has answered the door to see that Benjamin has arrived on time. 
*Krystal* "Please come in and sit. Michelle will be down in a moment."
*Benjamin* "This is a lovely house you have Mrs Lavigne. You have restored it wonderfully."
*Krystal* "Why thank you, Benjamin. It has taken a lot of years to get this house back to it's former glory."
 *Benjamin* " Growing up as a contractor's son I have seen some fantastic restorations. This house is mighty fine."
*Krystal* "Really? I had no idea your family was in the business. My husband is a contractor as well."
*Benjamin* "Yes, ma'am. My father has been preparing me my whole life to take over when he retires."
As they begin to talk Michelle makes her way downstairs.
*Michelle* "Okay I'm ready."
*Benjamin* "Wow! You look great, Michelle. You know we're just going to dinner and a movie, right?"
*Krystal* "I agree, you are lovely Dear. Well, you two have a good time."
*Michelle* "Bye Mamma, don't wait up. We will probably catch a late movie, so I'll be home after that."
*Krystal* "Okay, Dear. Ya'll be safe and have a good time."
*Benjamin* "Bye, Mrs Lavigne."
*Krystal* "Bye, Benjamin take care of my baby girl."
Benjamin takes Michelle to his favorite Chinese restaurant "The Golden Dragon".
They have just been seated and the waitress has come to take their drink order.
*waitress* "What would you like to drink?"
*Benjamin* "We'll take a bottle of your best wine and an order of oysters."
*waitress* "Wonderful! I will be back with your wine and put the order for the oysters in."
*Benjamin* "Thank you."
Moments later the waitress comes back with glasses and a bottle of wine.
And takes their food orders.
*Benjamin* "To good food n good friends."
*Michelle* "Cheers to that!  Mmmm...good wine."
*Benjamin* " This place has the best Chinese food in town."
While they begin chatting the waitress comes back with their appetizer of oysters.
*Michelle* " Mmmm these are very good. I haven't had oysters in forever."
*Benjamin* "So what movie do you wanna see?"
*Michelle* " Oh, that new cheesy horror movie looks like fun to watch."
*Benjamin* "You like those kinda movies? I would have thought you'd want to see the latest romance novel turned movie."
*Michelle* "Nah! I can't stand all that sappy romance. I'd rather see action or horror. Much more entertaining." [she laughs]
*Benjamin* [he laughs with her] "You surprised me there. You don't seem much like your sister."
*Michelle* [she get serious] "Me and her are nothing alike. Sorry, I am a little upset with her right now. She called earlier today to tell me I was crazy to talk to you and warned me I was in for heartbreak."
They pause their conversation momentarily while the waitress brings in the food.
*Benjamin* "Oh man! Yeah she don't like me too much. But I did hurt Penelope. I was wondering if she was gonna come storming over and pull your phone number right outta my hand that day at the barbeque. She didn't look happy at all."
*Michelle* "So you admit to being the bad guy?"
*Benjamin* "To an extent. I should have stopped dating her sooner. She was getting way to possessive to the point of embarrassment. So I went out one night with some friends and got a little too drunk and was caught dancing with some girl."
*Michelle* "That is not the story I heard. They made it sound a lot worse like you were all over every girl there. I believe you though I know Penelope and she is a bit crazy. Her and my sister have been friends since high school. So she is always gonna side with her no matter what."
*Benjamin* "I hope us dating doesn't cause major problems with you and your sister. I would really like to get to know you."[he gives her is best smile]
*Michelle* "Don't worry about Laura I can handle her. [smiling back at him] Besides I would like to get to know you better too."
They continue to talk as they each finish their meals.
The waitress comes back to clear their plates and leave them the bill.
*Benjamin* "You ready to go see that movie?"
*Michelle* "Yeah. let's get outta here."
Benjamin watches her as she walks to the door. Thinking to himself she is one beautiful woman.
Michelle sensing his eyes following her. She knows she has got his attention but what will she do now? Lead him on or will she fall for him?

Stay tuned to see the conclusion to their first date!!
