I froze in the middle of my unpacking, still clutching
the high ball glass in one hand and the packing paper
in the other.
His voice was as smooth as glass against silk.
Like no voice I'd ever heard before. I couldn't believe
When I saw his face, I was astonished.This guy looked
so much like my first love, the guy I'd
fallen for in college. The guy I lost my virginity to.
We never worked out, after graduation he went off to
a foreign country to help teach and I never heard from
For years I carried a torch for him though. I never
really got over him or my broken heart.
"I hope my being shirtless isn't offending you, but I
figured with the humidity and all and I guess I didn't
think anyone would be home. I'm glad you are though, it makes it easier for me to find the unit that needs fixing."
Still staring I did manage to find my voice.
"That's quite alright, I was just daydreaming while unpacking and I didn't hear you come in. I'm fine. Let me show you where the unit is. Follow me please."
Brushing by him, I couldn't help but notice his smell.
He smelled like fresh air, sunshine and the salty water of the beach on a windy day, all rolled into one. His smell was very sensual to me, quite intoxicating, actually.
As he followed me, I was keenly aware of his presence
When we got to the cooling unit, I stopped, he was walking fast to keep up with me and he nearly ran into my back. His slight brush behind me from the near collision of our bodies made my skin tingle. I could feel his breath on the back of my neck.
Suddenly, it wasn't too hot at all, I felt chills going up my spine. His smell was stronger now, that smell, it was like a drug and beginning to make me feel heady.
I turned around, looked at him and he seemed to be incredibly calm. Much calmer than me anyway. I spoke quickly before he noticed the affect his presence was having on me.
"Here it is, I hope it's not too far gone."His attention turned to the unit for a moment.
"I'll do the best I can to get it going for you."
He smiled, flashing big, beautiful, perfect, white teeth
and even his smile was beginning to make my legs feel
For a split second, I noticed his gaze slipped to my nipples and I suddenly realized I had no bra on.
I had simply thrown on a halter top and short, shorts
after my shower because of the sultry heat.
I felt a bit uneasy and flattered at the same time
because he was noticing my breasts.
