“I’m so happy they fixed whatever that needed fixing,” a woman said.
“Yes, I paid too much to not be able to use the pool,” another woman replied.
I quickly dressed. I was happy I took everything with me to the showers from my locker so I could quickly walk past the women.
“Do you have a jacuzzi tub in your room?” the first woman asked.
“Yes, but I’m using more of the fridge. My bill is going to be huge,” her companion replied.
I squeezed water out of my hair.
“Have you seen the men at the restaurant? The single ones who don’t sit with wives or girlfriends? Now, that’s what I call high class,” a new woman’s voice sounded.
“I saved for months for a night in this hotel. I’m hoping to grab at least one successful man’s attention,” a fourth woman said.
“Oi. The workouts at the gym… They better be worth it. I lost twenty pounds,” a fifth woman said.
This place was really filling up.
“It helps that you spent that two hundred dollars on the swimsuit from the hotel. It’s attention grabbing,” the third woman said.
“Look who’s talking! You spent three hundred. If we don’t catch some men with these, there’s the morning in the restaurant,” the fifth woman said.
“I’m just happy my ex has the kids today,” the fourth woman said. “It’s nice to get out and enjoy myself.”
“Look out, world. The cougars are out to play,” the third said.
“I’m only okay with you calling us that, Darla,” the fifth woman said. “But when someone else says it, I want to empty my wine on them.”
The women laughed.
I was finally finished with dressing and getting my stuff together. I walked out of the showers, put on my shoes, and walked past the women. They eyed me as I went. I smiled shyly as I left the dressing room.
Lucas was talking with men about stock prices as I neared but before joining them, I maneuvered to the bartender. The young guy was the same from the last time.
“What can I get you, Miss Tanner? On the house,” the bartender said.
“Oh,” I replied, a little uncomfortable. I looked back at Lucas, who was still talking and then back to the young guy. “I would like something sweet, but I don’t know any drinks. Thank you.”
