“Face forward. Strip down.”

His voice was deep, suggestive and close enough for me to feel his breath on my neck. I won’t fool you, his voice sent tingles up and down my spine in a very naughty way.

I turned very slowly to face the tall, seductively handsome man I had only seen a few seconds before. He was grinning down at me in such a sexy way that I almost forgot where we were.

I inhaled deeply to refocus my thoughts, flipped my hair nervously over my shoulder and tried to match his irresistible smile.

“Excuse me?”

Oh…how I needed him to repeat those words again.

He extended his finger and barely stroked it against my…

debit card that I forgot I was holding.

“For your card to work, you have to put the face forward and the strip down through the swipe of the machine.”

It took me about five seconds to process what he had just explained. I looked up at him, down to my debit card and back up into his eyes.

“Oh, yeah. I knew that.” Totally embarassed, I swiped my card properly through the debit machine this time. “Sorry, my Pay Pass somehow got deactivated.”


I much preferred my twisted meaning of what I thought Mr. Tall Hot and Handsome had said.

I fumbled to grab my coffee from the barista and stepped aside to the milk & sugar station. As I was opening my fourth packet of cane sugar, he appeared next to me again.

“Are you having sugar with your coffee or coffee with your sugar Beautiful?” he teased.

I had never seen a man with such striking eyes before. His eyes were capable of peering straight into my soul.

As my mind struggled to find something intelligent to volley back with, I knew that today would be one that I would never forget.
