The table is small & round, situated next to the glass front of the coffee shop that looks out onto the street.
I can sense that he’s watching me as I turn around to take off my jacket & hang it over the back of the wooden chair.
Today I’m wearing my custom made perfectly tapered to fit, soft black leather jacket.
When I turn back to sit down he is pointedly scrutinising his ipad.
I can see from the reflection in the window that there is nothing on the screen, except for his own face mirrored back.
My own face must have been reflecting because as I looked at his reflection of a reflection somehow our eyes met, like when you make eye contact with someone in a mirror.
“Here’s your latte my love, do you need any sugar with that?”
The moment is lost by the interruption of my latte being served to the table.
He looks a little awkward so I decide to be nice & use my magic on him.
My ability to enchant & engage with people, anyone, everyone, is perfect for putting my table partner at ease.
“Soooo ….sorry to impose myself onto you, If you’re busy I could go & impose pin another table it’s just that your table looked so much more inviting, “
I smile then take a sip of my coffee.
He smiles at me then leans across the table all the while maintaining eye contact.
I can feel the warmth of his skin on my cheek as he whispers directly into my ear…..
“You have coffee froth on your nose!”
He smiles slyly then adds;
“I could lick it off for you if you like?”
He draws back slightly so he can see my reaction,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
