I’ve got another little story for you today — short and sweet. I hope you enjoy the quick read!
– Sleek –
The moment David saw her, he knew she was the one for him. Sleek and stunning, she was turning the heads of every man in the area (and a few women, too!). He swallowed heavily as his heart thumped out a painful, nervous rhythm; with a deep breath, he stepped cautiously forward to meet her—
…Only to veer off at the last second, with disappointment burning in his chest. He waited for a moment, but when he looked again, he saw that she was still there, the centre of attention, and the man who’d intercepted David was standing close at her side. His hand was resting casually on her as he chatted with a small group of people.
David scowled at his own cowardice; she didn’t belong to anyone; he had as much right as anyone to approach her.
He straightened his tie, smoothed down his hair and steadied his shoulders. With a purposeful stride, he marched across the yard and tapped the man on his shoulder. He turned quickly and flashed David a sharp grin. “Can I help you, sir?” he enquired in a voice like silk.
“Yeah,” David replied confidently. “…How much is this car? She’s a beauty.”
