In The Dark Of The Night

When Anastacia moves to the city of London to rid herself of adult responsibilities and experience the nightlife, she meets Louis, a dark handsome man that owns the night club down the road. But when she's eerily drawn to him and starts to lose valuable memories she questions who he really is...

The next morning Anastacia woke up to the sound of pots and pans clanging downstairs in the kitchen, a clear sign that Louis was already up.  Ana rubbed her neck to find that her neck was bandaged up and a bit sore along with the rest of her body from last nights events.  She sat up and grabbed a pair of shorts and a t shirt, sliding it on her body and walking down the stairs, her flip flops slapping against her feet.  "Good morning beautiful," smiled Louis, his teeth glimmering, his eyes a bright maroon, and his v neck t shirt exposing his smooth tan skin.  Anastacia smiled and walked over to Lou, kissing his lips softly before sitting at the dining room table, a glass of orange juice, eggs, biscuits with gravy and french toast awaiting her.  "Wow babe... all my favorites. Thanks.  How did you know?" she asked, taking a bite of her french toast.  Louis smiled and poured himself a cup of coffee before sitting down across from her, "You talk in your sleep..." he confessed, bowing his head slightly.  Ana blushed, feeling the color radiate throughout her face and ears, "I do? I'm sorry," she apologized.  There was a slight chuckle before Louis spoke, "Oh gosh love, no! Don't be sorry.  It's...adorable," he smiled again.  Ana smiled back before digging into her meal once more, looking at the shades that were drawn closed, as usual, before looking back at Louis, who was reading the morning paper.  She observed his features, something she liked to do whenever she got the chance to look.  She dazed off, admiring his smooth, styled hair, and his slightly tanned skin and his perfectly shaped pink lips.  "Anastacia?" Lou asked, waving his hand in front of her face, trying his hardest to get her attention.  "Oh um yeah. Sorry.  Must have dozed off," Ana smiled, shaking her head, "What did you say?"  Louis smiled, "So...I'm not sure if you have checked your messages on your phone but while you were asleep, your mother called.  I didn't answer it but I did listen to the voicemail, she wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas," he smiled.  Anastacia's bright grin slowly turned into a small frown, "You miss her don't you?" Lou spoke, sitting up and walking over to her, kissing her forehead before crouching down to her level.  Ana nodded, wiping a small tear from her eye, "I'm just so afraid of going back by myself. I'm scared for them.  I have no idea what's been going on with any of them," she cried, leaning forward and hugging Louis tightly.  Louis rubbed her back gently, his fingers tickling her spine delicately, "C'mon love...Let's go upstairs, I have a surprise for you," he smiled, picking her up bridal style and carrying her upstairs to Louis' master bedroom.  There on the bed was a large box, wrapped in shiny Christmas wrapping paper.  Louis set her down on the bed and smiled, picking up the gift and handing it to her. Ana smiled, unwrapping the paper to find a box, taped shut.  Anastacia ripped through the tape to find another taped up box, unwrapped.  She rolled her eyes, "Very clever Mr. Tomlinson... I am not amused," she mumbled, cutting through the tape on the box and opening it to find a new dress, a pair of shoes, and a bracelet with a small note in the bottom "To celebrate...A beautiful dress for a beautiful girl," read the gold handwriting on the piece of paper.  And lastly there sat a small envelope at the bottom of the box, with Anastacia's name written in the gold familiar handwriting.  She opened the letter and grinned, her eyes building up with small tears.  "I was hoping you were up for a little vacation," smiled Louis, pulling out a plane ticket of his own.  Ana giggled and pushed her gifts aside, hugging Louis tightly, "You're making me feel guilty for not getting you a gift," Anastacia sniffled, kissing his neck gently.
Please Ana, I need nothing from you. I have enough," Louis smiled, "Now go pack, we have a flight to get ready for," he smiled.
