A/N: The next option in the upcoming poll.

Wade had had a long day; first he missed his flight, then his second flight misplaced his luggage, and he'd just gotten a call that his work visa was having issues…again. Most bitingly of all, today marked exactly four months since he'd been with a woman.

"Another 'black and velvet'." He grumbled after slamming his glass on the bar.

"Sir, that was your fourth one." The little bartender said.

"Then maybe you'll make the fifth one correctly." He spat. She frowned before mixing the drink.


"Now was that so hard?" He condescended.

"Cranberry and vodka please." Wade looked over at the woman sitting one stool over, it quickly turned into a stare. She glanced over at him before turning back, her eyes were the most piercing green. Most broads were on their knees at this point, why wasn't she?

"Thank you." She nodded at the bartender before putting the glass to her mouth.

"Take a picture, it might last longer." Her pouty lips parted slightly, one eyebrow arched upwards, either it had been way too long, or she was the most striking woman he'd ever seen.

"That's cute." Wade snickered.

"Thanks, I try." She tossed her black mane over her right shoulder.

"Wade." He held out his hand to her, she looked at him a moment then slipped her hand in his.

"Autumn." She said.

"Autumn." He let her name roll off his tongue.

"I like the way you say that." She teased. He leaned over, putting his mouth close to hers.

"…Autumn." He murmured. A chill ran up her spine.

"Oh you're good." She lowered her head and chuckled, flashing her dimples.

"How would you know, it's not even morning yet?" He asked. She quickly looked up at him, almost surprised…almost.

"Aren't you sure of yourself?" She tilted her head and studied his face.

"I have every reason to be." He confided.

"Thank you. Have a nice night." Autumn handed a few bills to the bartender and stood up.

"Where do you think you're going?" Wade asked.

"It's getting late. Time for bed." She eyed him one good time before walking away.

Autumn stepped out the elevator onto the third floor, pulling out the key to her room that was just around the corner.

"I suppose you think you're clever." She smiled when she heard the voice behind her.

"Took you long enough." She said.

"You're gonna pay for that little stunt." He warned. She rolled her eyes and turned around.

"If you say so."

"I beg your pardon?" Wade scoffed.

"Don't beg, it's beneath me." She batted her eyelashes at him.

"That's quite a mouth you've got for such a little lady." He hadn't decided if he was getting pissed off or turned on, probably both.

"Oh, I'm no lady."

"Well consider yourself lucky, I'm no gentleman."
