Tantalizing Tuesday - Invitation

Only two hundred words? I wish I had more. Well, here we go!

Did he notice? No, no he’s looking at that waitress. I mean, sure it’s not low cut, but that top does nothing but emphasize her size C cups. Does he like B’s? Oh, my God, he’s looking at me.
“Something wrong?”
“Uh, no. Why?”
There is that melt-me smile. When did it stop being a friendly smirk and become so… sexy? I mean, he’s still the boy next door who made me eat mud pies and helped me catch frogs. Except, he’s not. I mean, really not. He’s a man for one thing. How long has he been shaving? That stubbly jaw should not turn me on this much.
“I guess you’re just quieter than usual. Something happen with Sara?”
My bestie and the one who told me that this invitation could be something else. Something more. I’m really thinking she was out to lunch now. On the other hand, he’s staring at me. There’s that line on his forehead again. Need to lighten up.
“No.” I bite my lip. “When was the last time we came here?” I ask.
He smiles again and stomach flips. “When you asked me what kissing was like.”
Oh, right, shit.

“Wanna try again?”

  1. Very sweet and touching, Angelica. Great use of tension and reflection.

  2. Oh, you're right, this should be longer. Loved it :-)

  3. Yes, this is a very sweet, reflective piece. Brings back my own sweet memories of 'buddies' who grew into men that made me quiver. Loved this and it is so thought-provoking. Yep, The Wonder Years.....xo

  4. I remember my share of friends who spark the thing lurks in the dark. That funny things about writing when write about the things that touch us. Even it was only for moment ...thank you
