My head bops and my hips sway along the soft music playing throughout the café .The smell of coffee lingered in the air. The laughter echoing at the back. The windows clearly giving me the perfect view of the busy streets. I look around and find people busy in their own world. I try my best to put on my dimples as I serve the customers.
Today is incredibly busy and boring as my co-worker and good friend Ria is on leave. Managing everything without someone you know can be quite boring and stressful . I try to manage my limited time by reading as much as I can during my breaks. Shuffling work and college can be a challenge sometimes.
As my break ends I turn towards the mirror and say “I believe in myself”. This is something which I keep on telling myself before facing the shit life might throw my way.
As the bell rings indicating a new customer I take a deep breath and put on a smile “Hello sir, welcome to Maze Café. What would you like to order?”
As soon as I lift my head am met with the most amazing and mesmerizing almond shaped brown eyes. As I stare deeper I see a flicker of golden brown iris. The kind that makes your heart beat faster. His manly, peppered stubble gives him a perfect mysterious and dangerous look. His decisive brown eyes land on mine which makes my feet tremble.
My eyes travel down to his chest memorizing the way it looks. When I hear someone clearing their throat I drag my eyes up to meet his arched eyebrow. His stare makes my throat go dry and for a moment I forget about the surrounding and look at this Greek god.
“Are you done staring ? If yes, can I have a black coffee to go?” His deep voice ignites a fire inside me which directly reached my core. God dammit he’s gorgeous. Clenching my legs together I compose myself and smile . “Sorry, it’s 2 dollars “
He reached for his pocket while giving me a chance to admire his body. His arms flexed due to which his tattoo peaks out. His rough knuckles makes me what to feel it against my skin. Lowering his card he props his phone against his ear.
He beings to turn away from me by giving a perfect 360 view of him in a suit. I get back to make the coffee. Several seconds passed by ,I keep on glancing at the Greek God while his back was still turned to me. His attention focused on whoever was on the other side of the line.
I place his coffee and got back to my work. When I feel someone staring at me , I glance back and meet his brown orbs. His continuous stare makes my heart skip a beat . His eyes hold power, dominance and lust which stirs new emotions in my heart.
I lower my head as I couldn’t keep up with his gaze . That’s when I hear his manly voice again “What’s your name princess”.
“Elena” it almost comes out as a whisper.
“Elena” it sounded as if he was trying my name on his tongue. I never knew my name sounded so sexy and the way it rolled gave me goosebumps.
“Am James, nice to meet you Elena. Eyes up here “when I met his eyes I froze.
“Meet you soon princess “ with that he smirked and left.
I stood there shocked not understanding what he meant.
