Congrats to Six Sentence Sunday and my 2nd six sentence Sunday submission

More celebrations at  http://www.sixsunday.blogspot.com/
Ooooh! Cupcakes! Now it's a party! Now six sentences from Bride of the Living Dead (actual 1st several pages can be read in the widget at the right):

Indie film critic Daria meets Oscar at the almost-deserted showing of a terrible film. A handshake introduction produces such an surge of lust that Daria realizes she's trembling. Now they are alone in the screening room except for Ernie, the tech guy, who's packing up to go.

His hand was warm and his touch calmed me down a little--grounded me.
Neither of us said anything for a minute, but we kept smiling at each other after he let go of my hand, as if our bodies were communicating all on their own and waiting for our minds to catch up. Maybe they were. I was having the best time I’d had in--forever...
Meanwhile Ernie shut off the lights and propped the door open meaningfully.
"I think we have to go," I said.
