Diana was listening to U2 when she spotted the statue. He was carved out of black marble,  his athletic form highly emphasized.

“Stuck In a Moment” played on her phone and she chuckled to herself thinking this statue was indeed “stuck in a moment” and he would never be able to “get out of it.”

Circling him, Diana examined the statues form from all angles. She touched him, loving how smooth his marble skin felt. She was surprised when her touch sparked a light.

The light traveled through the veins and muscles of the statue from his feet up to his neck, flickering into the features of his face. Suddenly, what stood before Diana was an attractive man.

He grinned at Diana, unaware of his own nakedness. Smiling he clasped Diana’s hand before kissing her soundly. Then, he walked off into the crowded street, drawing unheard of female attention.

Diana continued her own way back to work unsure if what she experienced was real. She couldn’t help but think, the man who had been a statue, gave her the best kiss she’d had in forever.

        Didn’t stay that way. No day ever does. I put down the booze nearly 2 decades ago and I have been busy ever since. No rest for the wicked. With every second wind I can’t lose… 😅😆

    Thanks Sascha. I think the statue really did come to life (in my story anyways).

    Wow that was super cool. I am sure the other women cursed themselves for no reaching out to him first. Like how she had a lovely surprise!

      I think she had a little something, I’m not sure what. But it turned out good for her anyways 🙂 Thanks for reading and commenting 🙂
