Love, Life and London - CHAPTER 2 by tigerDE
I am so excited! Alice said breathlessly, flipping through a magazine as the gang waited to board the aeroplane. Ive always wanted to go to England - apparently the girls are very hot.
Ooh goody, Dana purred, rubbing her hands together in glee. I fully intend to use my new out status.
So, what do you guys want to do while were there? Bette asked, looking through a guidebook. Anything you especially want to see?
Id quite like to go on the London Eye, Tina said, moving closer so she could see the guidebook too.
Yeah, me too, Dana agreed. And weve gotta go out in Soho.
Ooh yeah, the Candy Bar! Shane exclaimed. Its supposed to be brilliant. Thats in Soho.
What about you? Tina asked Bette.
Well, I want to go to the Tate Modern, she began. But, if you lot dont want to come, Ill go alone.
What's that? Dana searched her brain hard for where shed heard that name.
Its an art gallery.
Alice rolled her eyes, and reached over to take the guide book from Bettes hands.
Its ok, baby, Ill come with you, Tina told her, stroking her thigh. They kissed for a moment, until Alices none-too-subtle coughing made them pull away.
Sorry, Tina said sheepishly, grinning at their friends.
Just then, a voice came over the intercom. ~Could all passengers of the British Airways flight 5698 to Gatwick, please make their way to boarding gate 17.~
Thats us. They all stood and grabbed their hand luggage.
Im sorry you guys, Tina apologised as she handed the tickets to the staff at the boarding gate. Work paid for me and Bette to travel business class, but youre in economy.
Aah, thats ok, Shane said. I cant afford business class. Ill just be sleeping anyway. Just think of us when youre in your lavish seats drinking champagne.
Tina and Bette smiled, and made their way to the business class section at the front of the aircraft.
Wow, this is nice, Bette noted as they were shown to their seats by a drooling flight attendant. And he fancies you, she added under her breath.
Uh-uh, Tina argued. He fancies you. He couldnt take his eyes off your highly visible cleavage.
Bette looked down at her outfit and shrugged. Maybe he fancies both of us. They sat down and took the proffered menus. Anyway, do you not like my choice of clothing?
Oh, I love it, Tina drawled. And its always amusing to watch men fall over themselves to impress you.
Whatever, Bette dismissed, putting the menu down and sitting back with a yawn. Ill get something later, Im too tired to eat right now. I think Ill just catch up on my sleep from last night.
