Exhilarated Anna smiles. She’s got a positive gut feeling about their encounter tonight. I’m single again…
Let me rephrase that: I’m single and hot and full of energy and life. Cute! Fun. Playful. Kind.
Single and ready to mingle – she giggles – with a big heart…
…And my date is here. Yay, yay, yay!!
20:49 OK. Almost ready. Will give you a call soon. 😊
Gonna meet charming prince Christian any minute now. Yahoo! (Hmm. Hope he’s not too much of a frog).
The Love Game. One can’t win if one doesn’t dare play. Try, Anna, try! Risk it.
Anna is standing outside Christian’s hotel, and her body is singing… 🎼 I’m so excited, and I just can’t hide it – I’m about to lose control and I think I like it… 🎶
She literally can’t wait to see him anymore. Big smile, bubbly heart and many bouncy butterflies flying in her stomach. Hopefully in his, too. They’re flying everywhere. Out of control. Haha. YOLO, yeah! That’s what I’m talking about, babe.
They’ve agreed to meet around 20:30.
She looks at her watch and…
...21:15? Seriously?! Where is this man?? I thought Englishmen were punctual.
21:20 Hey there, I’m outside your hotel with my son’s dog. James Bond also wants to meet you. 😊 Are you almost ready?
It’s getting a little cold in the drizzling rain for little 007 – but no reply from Christian. What’s going on?
21:37 I’m so sorry. I got lost!!! I’m at Oluthuone Kaisla.
WTF?? I thought he was dying to meet me! What is he doing in a bar instead???
21:38 Weren’t you at the hotel?
I got lost.
I’m in front of the Radisson Blu Royal. Is this your hotel? I was going to pick you up from here, wasn’t that what we planned?
I’m so tired and ill. I’ll get a taxi.
Oh! He’s feeling ill? Oh.
We’re gonna lose each other if he starts moving around.
A taxi. Where to?
He doesn’t have my address. And I’m not at home.
Can you pick me up, please? So sorry! Everyone I asked pointed me towards the wrong hotel.
I can come to the bar – but if I come there, will you be there?
I’m not moving. I’m lost. I’ll be waiting for you here. Please! And, sorry again. ☹️
Anna walks a km down to Kaisla and waits by the door on Vilhonkatu. She can’t go in with the dog, so she tries calling him.
She starts feeling suspicious. Almost irritated. Not quite, but almost. Sigh. I’ll give him the benefit of a doubt. He can probably explain this.
22:03 Are you at the bar? I’m outside Kaisla now, with 007. Can’t see you from here.
He calls her and says he’s coming outside in a minute.
But still nothing.
This is too weird! Eurgh!?!?!?!!!
Is he even where he says he is???
About five minutes go by before Anna asks some people who are coming out of the establishment if there possibly is another entrance to the bar. “Yes, there is,” they answer with a friendly smile.
Ahhh. That explains it. Phew.
She walks James Bond round the block to Kaisaniemenkatu. She spots a tall man standing by the tram stop with a suitcase and his back towards her. Feeling feisty now.
Is he even who he says he is?? Be brave, now.
Jack Chi 007 – good doggie – will sniff him and scare him off if he’s a bad guy!!
She approaches him and says, “Hi, Christian?” with a careful smile.
He turns slowly.
