Manners! - Three Word Wednesday
'Please don't come over, please don't come over!'
It was too late, the office lech had homed well and truly in on her.
"I saw you looking, so I thought I'd come and say, hi."
He reached out and touched her arm.
"I've always felt there was 'something' between us, an affinity ... I can see you feel it too."
She wanted to say 'No I don't you big creep ... Clear off!' but her inherent good manners prevented her and she lowered her head ... and noticed his fly was open. That was all she needed. A creepy lech after her with an open fly! Uugh!
She began to fidget uncomfortably, her eyes darting everywhere but 'there'.
He gave a slimy little laugh and stepped forward, one eyebrow raised, a wry smile working its way over his lips.
"Don't be nervous, sweetheart."
She groaned inwardly.
He reached out again, tracing a single finger down the length of her bare arm.
She took a step backwards.
She could see by the expression on his face that he interpreted the backward manoeuvre as her officially turning 'silly' in his presence.
"Shall we take this conversation somewhere a little more," he hesitated, and raised the eyebrow again, " private."
She took a deep breath and looked him in the eye.
"Could you please move aside ... and I thought I'd best mention, your fly is open."
Without an inkling of embarrassment, he kept solid eye contact, smiled again, zipped himself up and put his hands on his hips.
"Checking the goods out already ay, sweetheart?"
It was at that point she reevaluated her manners.
"I'm just about ready to give 'the goods' a swift kick if you don't go away!"
The smile dropped from his lips along with the suspended eyebrow.
A feeling of guilt flitted over her as she saw his deflated face. Maybe she could have been less harsh. Perhaps she could have let him down a little more gently... then she saw a smile work itself back on his face and the eyebrow go up again.
"Mmm, I like 'em feisty!"
That's it, she thought. Stuff manners ... "/*//* off!"
