“Sudden Interest”

 

She had caught

him

stealing a couple

of glances

of her

when he thought

she wasn’t looking

a little surprised

by this sudden

interest in her

and not really

sure

how she feels

about it,

she had just

broken up

with her boyfriend

a few weeks

ago

not really sure

she wants to

drop herself

into the middle

of a new mess

it took her

a month to

crawl out of

the last mess

though that guy

was pretty damn

hot

so she didn’t

crawl

quite as fast

as she

could have

there is something

to be said

about raw animal

magnetism

yea,

she didn’t crawl

very fast at

all,

she looks in

his direction

he looks down

and away

he’s kind of

cute

she had never

thought of him

as boyfriend

material

or really ever

thought of him

in any capacity

she watches him

as he walks

towards her

he looked up

and she catches

his eye

trapping his

glance

so he can’t

look away

it’s not hard

to see her

stare

is making him

nervous

that will teach

him

for getting a

sudden interest

in her

she gives him

a quizzical look

making sure he

continues in

her direction

to respond

to said look

her curiosity

peaked,

they exchanged

small words

as she carefully

probes

his reactions

and mannerisms

to a few of

her exploratory

questions

he gives her

a goofy smile

as he heads

off

after their little

chat

one thing is

obvious

to her

he likes her

a lot

but has no

idea

what to do

about it

which is sort

of cute

or homely

not ready to

choose which

one yet,

but the mystery

as to why

she was getting

so much attention

so suddenly

was answered

he kept looking

ay her left

hand

she had forgotten

she quit wearing

a ring on her

finger

when she broke

up

with her boyfriend

the exact time

his smiles started

getting wider

and his looks

began to linger

funny she didn’t

pick up on

that sooner

never really

thinking

anyone would

notice

such a small

detail

of her daily

look

which makes her

wonder

if any of the

guys

with a wider

bad boy streak

to them

has taken any

new interest

in her also,

her mind begins

to kick around

a couple of

names and faces

she wouldn’t mind

getting some extra

special attention

from

she was working

on a mild

day time fantasy

that included

one of the

fore mentioned

faces

among his other

parts

when he and

that stupid

smile

made their way

across her field

of vision

totally squashing

the best part

of her

time killing

fantasy,

she watches his

clunky motion

a physical mimic

of him in

conversation

when he’s

in front of

or talking to

a woman

he likes

she had seen

it with him

before

only she had

never been the

woman

causing it,

it’s not like

he’s an orc

he can even

be pretty funny

when not under

the stress of

a pretty face

he’s in great

shape

no fat on

that bone

he does have

some strong

possibilities

maybe if she

dirtied him up

a bit

she could push

him

from borderline

homely

to cute

on that sliding

scale

of attraction,

she tried to

work him into

one of her

more popular

time killing

fantasies

it certainly

wasn’t moving

as smoothly

as it was earlier

even here

he seems to

be clunking

around,

let’s just wait

and see if

any of those

other tigers

decide to give

her a bite

before she starts

handing him back

smiles

or she could

always wear

one of her

heart stopping

outfits

if she decides

she wants to

force the issue

and give him

no choice

other than to

ask her out

but for now

she’ll wait,

not knowing

she’s watching

him

he glides across

the floor

and starts talking

to a few of

the other girls

who begin to

laugh

shortly afterwards,

she nods her

head

but he does

have possibilities…
