She sensed his presence as soon as he entered the room. She required only the briefest of glances to signal her body’s emergency alert system. Peripheral assessments had become a common weapon in her arsenal of predatory techniques.
A subtle repositioning of her bottom on the barstool, a slight arching of her lower back and, if warranted, a casual, almost lingering, glance would follow.
This one was a keeper. The total package…she ticked through the mental punch list as he stood at the bar waiting to be served.
The shoes, always start with the shoes, John Fluevog, check, a little offbeat, nice touch.
The jeans, cut to perfection, slim, length just right, check.
Umm, love the belt, Hugo Boss.
OMG, the shirt is gorgeous, Robert Graham, love the detailing.
Nice hair, not too long, beard, two day growth, no jewelry, check, check, and check…

“Hey, what are you doing here?”
She felt the hot flush of blood rushing to her cheeks as she attempted to casually modulate her surprise. “Uh, well hey there hon, uh..I just dropped by for a drink after doing some shopping at BGs…I…”
“Well that’s awesome babe. Why don’t we stay and have dinner. That way you won’t have to cook tonight.”
