just another summer day on his way home from work.
the sidewalk steamy and crowded.
it was then that he saw her.
she was by the outdoor market, one of those little fruit and vegetable stands that seems to spill onto the sidewalk.
her basket was filled with small brown paper bags as she pointed to the grocer who chose what she wanted.
she was by the basket of cherries, when his eyes met hers.
his smile carried every carnal thought people seem to get during a heatwave.
she pointed to the cherries and the grocer began to fill a brown paper bag with them.
she paused and returned her thoughts to her sidewalk admirer, as she lifted and held a pair of cherries on a stem to her luscious lips, her tongue darting out playfully to lick them.
that small seductive act, pushed him over the edge.
' i was planning upon having dinner alone' he told her as he stepped closer.
' so was i ' she smiled.
neighbors it turned out, just a few blocks from one another.
it doesn’t matter who cooked dinner that night, or the night after that.
but the moral to this story is..there are some women who clearly understand the joys in life.
and always smile at the woman by the outdoor fruit stand…
