Saturday's AfterDark Moments - 09/21/2013: Blurred Memory

Hiyadoin? It's time for another segment of Saturday's AfterDark Moments where authors create a snippet between 100-500 words, along with their inspired pic. Here's what we have in store for you...

Egan woke up and wondered what happened last night? He was out partying with a group of friends in Paris, whom he didn’t know and got completely drunk at a pub. When bar came to a close, he staggered home, but he couldn’t remembered how ended up in bed.

He climbed out of bed, and saw a slender, young brunette standing over the beyond the satin curtains that breezed from the outside air. She was half-naked, wearing a black bra and underwear as she watched the street activity below.

He wondered, did he go home with that girl, and if he did… what was her name? He couldn’t recall anything, and realized he’d drank himself to the point where he didn’t remember. All he could do was get out there and find out who this mysterious woman was.

He walked toward her and shielded his eyes from the blue skies, as he got a glimpse of the neighboring Parisian buildings nearby. He asked, “Where am I?”

The girl turned over. She was beautiful. He wondered if he’d met her somewhere, like the bar. The next thing he wondered… did he have sex with her? If so, how did he ended up putting on his pants after sex. He came to the realization that he didn’t, so he wondered how did he end up with this beautiful woman?

“You’re in Paris,” the young brunette replied in a French accent.

“What happened?” He scratched his head, trying to make sense. “Have I met you somewhere?”

“No, I saved your life. Those men at the bar were trying to kill you.”

“Come again?”

Egan stood frozen. He shook his head, wondering if she was joking or for real. All he did was go out and travel the world, and meet with strangers at the bar as they bought him drinks. He got a better look at the girl and widened his eyes in disbelief when realized that he’d met her at the bar, when she stepped out of the restroom and accidentally bumped into him, cursing him out in French. How did he suddenly ended up in her place?
