Charlie and Emma Chapter Six
Short Story by: KLianB
Since the last talk with Seth, things haven't been the same.
Our talks were always interrupted with silent pauses, and eye gazing at each other.
"Its making me nervous..." I confessed to Henry. It was about a 5 minute before I was going to leave and Henry was free at that moment. "His eyes are so.."
"His eyes are just SO captivating, i cant stop looking at him! Its making my lady hormones go WIL-"
"STOP IT!" I scolded him. He laughed "Jeez, you're like a mom"
"Maybe cuz I am one Sherlock" I whispered humorously and reddened "Well, an unknown one I guess."
"Erin" He called my name and I stood up from my desk "We need to talk."
I walked into his office hesitantly and Henry gave me a quick thumbs up "Close the door Miss Flin" He said with slight demeanor.
I did as he told me and stood a few feet from his desk. I didn't look at him "You don't have an idea of not going with me with this invitation are you?" He glared at me "Are you?"
"No si- Seth. I do not plan to leave you alone there." I replied shyly
"Then why the hell are you still wearing those dresses?" He scowled at me. I cleared my throat softly and spoke "Why does my appearance concern you?"
He dug his face into one hand and groaned "God!" He would exasperate his words "Never mind!"
He opened the small cabinet beside his desk and pulled out a dress. "Here, you're going to wear this." The dress was white, strapless, and a little above knee length. It looked unbelievably expensive and gorgeous. I looked down for a minute. "What now?" He asked
"Seth...The length of the dress is too inappropriate for me-"
"How old are you again?" He interrupted me
"And why can't a 23 year old woman wear this?"
Cuz i feel like my body is still too average for you "That's too much for a special occasion for me to wear it. Maybe I should wear-"
"You're the Special occasion"
Again, that pause of silence between us. It made me speak involuntarily "Umm-"
He put the dress down on the table "Leave" He said as he stood up but faced towards the window.
I took the dress quickly "Se-"
"LEAVE!" He said louder than he really should have. Frightened, I left the room, and closed the door behind me.
The attraction of the dress gave looks, and I quickly, I left the office without looking at Henry. I swear he has a huge grin on his face.
Seeing Charlie was the relief in me. Like usual, he talked about his day with the nanny, but I didn't remember the things he said.
The last look I had of Seth made me blank.
The tips of his ears to his cheeks were red.
