“Thank you for meeting me,” I said. She looked at my clothes.
“You look different in a suit,” she said.
“Welcome to real life attire,” I said and she laughed. It skipped around me and I wanted to say more things that made her laugh just to hear it again.
A waitress arrived. We both ordered coffee.
“Now that we have that out of the way,” I said when the waitress left, “I have unfinished business with you.”
Harper blushed. Sitting across from me in a mediocre café wearing office clothes she didn’t look like the daring woman she’d been on Saturday. She was still a goddess but she was reserved, unsure. Shy.
“I’m sorry about that,” she said.
I blinked at her. An apology was the last thing I’d expected from her. An excuse, a sassy remark maybe, but not an apology.
“What happened?” I asked.
She looked around the café like the answer would be hiding between the other diners.
“I have a confession to make,” she said.
I blinked at her.
“Oh, God,” I said. “You’re married.” Of course, a woman as gorgeous as her would be taken.
She looked stunned for a moment before she laughed, surprised.
“No, no. I’m not married. I’m a virgin.”
She blushed. “Don’t make me say it again,” she said.
“No,” I said. “I heard you.” I just didn’t understand it. The waitress arrived with our coffee, giving us a break. The waitress didn’t stick around for long and when she left Harper looked like she wanted the woman to come back.
“You’re bullshitting me, right?” I asked. It couldn’t be real. She was too hot. She was too much of a tease.
Harper shook her head and I watched her, looking for something, anything that would give her away. There was nothing. In fact, she looked so damn unsure of herself right now, so innocent, that I had to believe her.
“Fuck,” I said under my breath. Her eyes shot up to mine and I lifted my hands. “Sorry. It’s just… unbelievable.”
She shrugged and stirred her coffee around and around, not making eye contact.
I turned it around in my mind, cradled the information like the rarity it was. The more I thought about it, the more unbelievable it was. An unbelievable turn on.
Harper was a virgin. No man had been in there. She hadn’t been fucked before. The more I thought about it the hotter it became. I’d wanted her before because she was hot as hell, but now…
“Why?” I asked. “If you don’t mind sharing?”
She looked up at me and a little bit of tension left her face. She pulled one shoulder up in a shrug and the gesture was cute.
“I haven’t found the right guy, yet.”
“So, nothing about religion or saving yourself for marriage or anything?”
She shook her head, her cheeks flushed again.
“It’s just because I haven’t found the right guy.”
I sat back in the booth.
