THE GUY AT THE POETRY READING BY ELLEN BLOOMENSTEIN 34THPARALLEL MAGAZINE ISSUE 65
Kevin reached for Melinda’s hand and held it. He leaned across the table and kissed her softly on the lips. “Let’s get outta here! Hey, I’ll take you home!” Kevin waved down a cab on 3rd Avenue. “What’s your address?”
Melinda hesitated, “Oh, right—well, it’s Madison and 32nd Street.” “Great. So that’s where we’re going, driver.” Melinda had a rule to never get too close on a first date. She had a fleeting thought that perhaps she shouldn’t have agreed to let Kevin take her home—I mean, he could be a creep—she really didn’t know him. Then again, she looked over at him and thought how handsome he looked. He must be a good guy, she reasoned.
