The Heart of Alice.. Part I

Love
2010-08-29

I was sitting perched on a stool at a small bar across town. It was Saturday, and the place was filled with people- men and women. chatting, flirting- leaving together. I'd been there before, and I didn't know why I'd come back that night. I sighed and finished the last of my second drink, standing up to go.

I'd made it part way through the crowd of would-be couples, clutching my purse to me and walking politely through them, trying to not get in the way, when I felt a hand on mine. I turned around and looked into the most beautiful eyes I'd ever seen. They were dark blue, and framed with long, thick lashes. They belonged to a girl who stood a few inches shorter than me, her long, straight hair flowing over her shoulders. She took my hand, her soft, cool fingers entwined with mine, and wordlessly led me out the door.

Outside, under the lights of the city, I could see her better. Her long hair was honey blonde, her face heart-shaped, her lips thin, but curved up slightly at the corners. Her skin was pale, but freckled all over her arms and shoulders. She was slight on top, with wide hips that made me think, at least for a moment, of Tinkerbell.

She released my hand and stood, facing me, her pose casual, thumbs hooked into the pockets of her low-riding jeans which looked a bit too big on her, her light cotton peasant top fluttering lightly with the slight city breeze.

She looked at me, that soft smile on her lips, and stuck her hand out towards me.

"I've seen you before" she said, her voice soft and gentle. I felt myself swallow, nervous.

"You have?" I automatically stuck my hand out, as well, and she clasped hands in a brief handshake before letting go- a light laugh dancing in her eyes.

"Yes. I'm Alice. " she said, then,

"You don't have to be afraid of me. " she took my hand again, gently leading me down the cobbled sidewalk.
"What's your name?" she asked.

"L-Lucy. " I said softly, flushing.

She stopped briefly at a curb, and in the light, I saw her smile as she looked to see if it was safe to cross, before we started walking again.

"Lucy. . " she murmured. And that was the last thing we said as we walked, ten more minutes, until we turned towards a townhouse when was painted a sandstone yellow.

I hesitated on the wooden steps of the porch, before following her. Up and through the door.
The inside of the house was warm and inviting, with the essence of calm that I'd felt as soon as Alice had taken my hand the first time.

"What do you think?" she said, walking forward into the living room.
"It's. . It's like spring. " I replied in awe, taking in the rich, honey colored wood floor, the walls a pale, soft green, accents of a yellow which reminded me of buttercups. I followed her in, where she sank onto one of the oversized chairs, flinging her legs over the arm. I sat on the couch, close to the chair, only a low table between us.

Alice looked at me, her calm eyes studying me, and I flushed, looking away.

"I have seen you before, you know. . . " she said, softly.

   "You sit in bars night after night. Sometimes you chat with friends but--most of the time, you're alone. . Sketching in your notebook. " I hunched my shoulders, embarrassed.

"You draw the form of a woman with such care, such devotion. " she said. The words made me look up at her, surprised.
"I do?" I asked, meeting her eyes directly. She nodded and smiled at me.

"Yes. . You love the form of a woman. . Her curves, her gentle lines, the way there's nothing angular about her.

I nodded.

"Lucy. . . " said Alice, smiling that subtle, sweet smile. "Will you talk with me?. . I'd like to know you. . " Her words filled me with a tingling sensation- surprise, a thrill that this extraordinary girl could want to know me. I couldn't even dream of it. I sighed and leaned back against the cushions, looking at her again, and summoned up my courage.

"I would love to talk with you, Alice. .

  . " I said even as I blushed again. "But--would you sit by me? I. . I promise I'll tell you whatever you want to know. . "

She got up gracefully and joined me, suddenly reaching down to pull my legs onto her lap. It was so random that I laughed out loud- and she chuckled along with me. As we quieted, she rested her hands on my legs.

"Tell me, Lucy- why have you never drawn a man?" she asked.
