It was a typical Saturday, and having to work every weekend, I was used to Brandon, the sexy older manager, dropping by to say hi and see how everything was going. Since I knew there was the potential of seeing him, I tended to “up” my outfit for work—that day I took the time to put on a knee-length dress that hugged my lower back like a glove. My mission was to disarm my sexy Christian crush and in order to do that, I had to pull out all that I had to battle with. Since it was common knowledge that Brandon was a man of faith, it was also common knowledge that he had a darker side, and I was ready to bring to it out.
The first hour of work went by without a hitch; we were usually slow during the weekends so it was no surprise. It wasn’t long until I heard Brandon whistling down the hall and I had to calm myself down. What am I going to say? What if he doesn’t even notice? Oh my god do I even look good? I was in full panic mode. I wasn’t a seductress! I was all talk and no matter how many times I told my best friend, Melinda, that I was going to bring Brandon to his knees for me, it was said under false self-confidence. I didn’t have time to take it all back though. His whistling was coming closer so, without thinking, I grabbed my book and pretended to be lost in it. The whistling stopped.
“Hey, where is everybody?” Brandon whispered as his breath tickled my ear. I jumped, noticing that he was really close. It was both exciting and nerve-wracking to have him before me, especially knowing that he had been that close to me. He was either getting too used to our routine or he enjoyed toying with me. I was betting on the latter.
“You scared me!” I quickly put the book down, shuffling it under my paperwork. It was one thing to be caught reading an erotic book (even though I was pretending to read), but for him to actually read what I was spending my time on was a little too embarrassing. The last thing I wanted was for him to have an opinion of me as some lovesick little girl who lived vicariously through her books. I had to project myself as a grown woman. How I proceeded with this situation could make or break my plan to get Brandon…
