Pink and Ultra Pink's Espresso

Pink was generally unhappy with the resultant romantic experiences of having been partnered with two super confident colors. Both White and Blue had a power over her she was drawn to but also universally hurt by. She could not emotionally afford to be on the receiving end of another breakup. Pink simply would not allow that experience another opportunity in her life. She was out looking for a different brand of color. 

Pink had no shortage of suitors, and she preferred entertaining interested parties in Green and Yellow’s garden, which was quickly becoming the fashionable place to spend time. So Green and Yellow issued open-ended invitations to everyone, resulting in a general smattering of colors drinking tea and making small talk pretty much throughout the morning.

True Blue won the first date with Pink from a pool of about thirty suitors. True Blue relied heavily on his sense of brevity when asking Pink to take a walk on the ocean water as friends only so she didn’t feel any pressure. Pink’s position after the walk was she wanted to remain friends and still hang out. Pink, though interested in True Blue, wanted to see more of him in action before committing to anything. True Blue played along. He would have done anything, nearly.

Pink had a power while interacting with True Blue she didn’t have with either White or Blue, and Pink enjoyed this power but was wary of missing out on the explosive experiences provided only by gazing upward at an object of admiration.

Ultra Pink used the opportunity of Pink’s rebirth into the dating world to establish a friendship with Pink. Finding Pink sprawled out on a chaise lounge on Ultra Pink’s outdoor deck on 5th Avenue in Manhattan wasn’t unusual, and neither was finding them at an espresso bar in Paris, which is where Pink lived.

One morning Powder Blue spotted Pink and Ultra Pink having coffee at one of their usual caf├ęs and made the mistake of likening them to Barbie dolls. One is judged completely by one’s delivery and not the accuracy of one’s remarks, Powder Blue contended while the two pinks chased him into the street.

Ultra Pink and Pink never knew they could be so feared, dismissing the obvious factor in their moment of glory that Powder Blue’s big mouth was paired with an especially weak spine. As if the day couldn’t get more exciting for Pink and Ultra Pink, Dark Blue strolled past their outdoor table and said hello, producing a melt-with-me moment. If Cobalt Blue was the most masculine of the male colors, Dark Blue, who was spoken for, remained the most mysterious, even after his unveiling, in which Pink played a minor role.

Here's the next part.

How, Ed: are you able to speak to the feminine in all this? This is just what a woman's thoughts are.

I don't know how you did it on this one.
