Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as Adam and Eve in Only Lovers Left Alive [HQ]
She was so pretty when she blushed. He wasn’t used to women doing that. The women on Asgard were so unlike the ones on Midgard. The one thing that did remind him of the women from Asgard was her lovely curves. They were in all the right places and he loved it. “I think a drink would be great. What would you prefer? I hear they have wonderful wine here.” He looked around and spotted a waiter, who hurried over, ready to take their order. “And some food, I am starved!”
"Wine would be just grand. I do have a slight preference for red over white. And yes, please, I am so very hungry!" she said smiling. The waiter came over quickly and she asked for recommendations on their red wine selection. She ordered a bottle of their finest and placed her order for filet Mignon and lobster. She waited as he placed his order and for the waiter to leave so they could resume their conversation. Nervously fumbling with her napkin, she hoped he didn’t think anything of her ordering something so large. She was never the kind of girl to just have a salad when her stomach craved something heartier. She must have seemed distracted when she felt his hand squeeze hers again and not realizing the waiter had left.
"Perfect choice." He praised her, he loved some good red wine himself but he wouldn’t turn down a huge mug of Asgardian ale either. Maybe he could get some and bring it down here? He was impressed at her order of steak and lobster and he ordered the same. It was nice to see a woman order what she wanted to eat, not what she thought he would think she would eat. That had happened on a few dates that he had had before. He looked back at her and she seemed distracted, so he gently squeezed her hand to let her know he was still here for her.
The wine came quickly to the table and she was very happy the waiter was prompt. She sipped it slowly letting the pungent flavors dance on her tongue. “I do apologize for being distracted. I was rethinking my order…but decided what i did go with was the right choice. You see….I’ve made the mistake of trying to be impressive to a date before and all that I got was hunger pangs and disappointment. I dont see the point of pushing limp lettuce around my plate when i could be feasting.” She took another drink of wine and smiled playfully at him. “As you can see, Donald, I love food and have the curves to prove it.” She turned her body so her ample backside was in his direction and bit her bottom lip softly, ever the perpetual flirt.
“I will find you,” he whispered in my ear. “I promise. If I must endure two hundred years of purgatory, two hundred years without you - then that is my punishment, which I have earned for my crimes. For I have lied, and killed, and stolen; betrayed and broken trust. But there is the one thing that shall lie in the balance. When I shall stand before God, I shall have one thing to say, to weigh against the rest.”
His voice dropped, nearly to a whisper, and his arms tightened around me.
"Lord, ye gave me a rare woman, and God! I loved her well.”
