Opportunity Only Knocks Once
I had been running up and down a flight of 500 stairs for half an hour listening to music on my phone. As a result, my shirt was drenched in sweat and clung to my chest as I jogged along the wharf on my way home.
When I first saw her she took my breath away. She was walking towards me, alone, dressed beautifully and ... well I've never seen breasts quite like that before. I didn't look at her directly as we got closer, but I could see her eyes shift from my face to my body and a shy smile forming on her face.
She was checking me out.
Possibly the most beautiful woman I have ever seen was checking me out.
So I ran straight past.
My brain was screaming at me to stop.
But I didn't.
The next evening I went back to the place I had seen her and waited. Just maybe it was her regular route home. There was no sign of her. She was gone.
