Jake watched each person enter the café. He was sure he spotted his rendezvous when a small middle-aged lady with brown hair and glasses walked in. She clutched a handbag in her hands as if her very life depended on it. The woman wore a long floral print skirt and a high-necked white shirt with sleeves covered to her wrists. No wonder Mark commented on her appearance. He found it difficult envisioning a
little old lady writing anything sexual. She looked over at his table and waved. He waved back. She turned and walked away from him.
“What the—” Jake mumbled. He didn’t come here to pursue some biddy.
“I hear you need a little sex,”a voice whispered in his ear.
The hair on Jake’s neck stood on end as recognition dawned. He turned and stared at the woman who spoke. “Lexi?”
Nothing prepared him for his immediate reaction. She was stunning. Chocolate hair with gold highlights framed her delicately carved face while large green eyes stared at him. He grew hard. He looked down the length of her. She wore a black leather bustier with ties down the front, a matching mini-skirt, fishnet stockings and thigh-high leather boots. He swallowed hard. The teddy bear coffee mug in her hand that read, ‘Bear necessities’ seemed out of place.
“You okay?” she patted his shoulder.
Her touch burned him. Jake very much wanted the spark she ignited. He nodded.

His voice disappeared in his parched mouth.
“Sorry, I’m late. I had this party to go to.”
“What kind of party?” He found the capability of speech.
“It was a Bondage themed party, to help a friend of mine celebrate the sale of her first
“Is that what you write?” What the hell was Mark thinking?
“Not at all.” She smiled.
“Oh.” He was relieved.
“You sound disappointed.”
“Just taken aback, thought maybe you dressed like this all the time.”
She waved her hand at him and leaned back laughing. He watched, amazed the cup of
coffee didn’t splash over the sides.
