An Unexpected Date

Belinda Haleigh slipped on her sheer silk stockings, wiggling her red-tipped toes and enjoying the soft smooth feel on her skin, escorts London girls especially have a thing about silk stockings.

“Dress nice.”

That had been the entirety of her instructions and so she was trying to do exactly that – and find something suitable for any number of possible activities.

“When in doubt, wear a little black dress,” she murmured to herself as she chose a backless, sleeveless sleek body-hugging number from the selection in her wardrobe. It ended just above her knees; long enough for decency while still giving her a sexy edge. The sheer stockings, with their subtle leafy etchings, completed the look.

“Yeah Belinda, you look like you’re gonna spend a naughty evening having tea with the queen,” she grinned at herself as she slipped on her white gloves and piled her long strawberry blonde hair on the top of her head. She brushed her rosy cheeks with a gold highlighter that brought out her amber eyes to perfection. She finished off with the reddest of red lipsticks, pouting at herself in the mirror a la Marilyn Monroe.

“You sexy beast,” she told herself with a last look in the glass as she picked up her purse.

There was a car waiting outside for her, which would take her to her destination in west London. She sat back, enjoying the complimentary glass of champagne and not asking any questions. She would see soon enough who her date was.

They arrived at the Royal Albert Hall of all places, where the Cirque du Soleil was playing. Her eyebrows went up in surprise as she let her driver lead her up the steps. He left her just at the top and she stepped in, wondering what now.


She jumped, hand to her heart and turned to see one of her regular clients, Pankraz Hofmeister standing to the side of the entrance grinning at her. He was an older gentleman, tall and preposing with a full head of white hair.

“Pankraz!” she exclaimed, “What is this?”

“Well it’s your birthday is it not?” he asked taking her hand and kissing it.

Belinda melted, “Yes, it is. How did you know?”

He flicked his nose with his finger, “Now liebschen that would be telling.” He said as he offered her his arm, “Shall we?”

Belinda gave him a blinding smile and rested her lips softly and briefly against his, “We shall,” she said.
