LC Mermaid Flare Dress
I carried up her luggage, overhearing her cell phone conversation.
“He’s handsome… we’ll see.”
It was the “we’ll see” that prompted me to turn around to find her unblinking stare set upon me, sending my heart aflutter. But I couldn’t hold her gaze, making it clear I was the bellboy and not the bellman.
Later that night I saw her at the gala wearing a little black dress flared at the bottom with slender velvet gloves and a long crystal necklace she twirled in her fingers. She was with a man but he would be excused rather early. As she left the gala I saw her gloves still on the table and followed her to the elevator where I found her still twirling the necklace. Was she waiting for me? Had I misread the signals? Too late now.
I handed her the gloves and our eyes and hands locked for longer than was comfortable.
The necklace fell slack in her hand and I pulled her close, sending her heart aflutter.
