Immediately Striking


Short bleached blonde hair, that type of dye job that's intentionally obvious. A curvy body, real woman curves, with boobs and hips, no ribs or clavicles showing. When she catches my eye, she's coming down the stairs where I work. She's looking around, she's notably by herself. “You look lost,” I say.

“Story of my life,” she returns, the kind of obvious cliche flirtatious response that just gets right to the core me. She asks me a question of directions, one that I can only guess the answer to, smiles at me, then moves off to her destination successfully.

A glance later shows the assumed flirtation earlier had been intentional and I can only think Damn, why when I'm at work?

Do you guys get that sometimes? The intriguing possibly vanilla/possibly not girl or boy that you see while working? Do you pursue? For me, the possibility of drama ensuing and revealing my…lifestyle…just is too much of an obstacle to overcome.

Though…with the right girl…that might change.

How about you all? Would you risk it?
