Butterfly Kisses- Chapter 3
I study the reflection carefully. He certainly isn't drop dead gorgeous but there is something about him that sends thrills through my body.
The way he looks at me as if he has never seen a woman before, like he could just devour me. I’d be scared if I didn't know that imps were harmless. Imps can be scary to look at and the way they like to cause trouble is disconcerting but as far as I know they don’t eat people or insects. I should be safe. Besides, from the bulge in his tight trousers I am pretty sure eating me as dinner is the last thing on his mind.
He must not be all Imp since he isn't entirely ugly. He does have impish features, a prominent nose and big wide mouth that takes up most of his round face. He has large round eyes that are a deep forest green. His hair is a maple brown, a little long around his face and wavy. And he is built like a brick house. Long well defined arms, big hands, strong muscular build, yum.
I decide to have a bit of fun with him and slowly start to wash myself, bending forward, my butt in the air, as I slowly wash my legs, starting at my feet working up. I keep my gaze on the reflection and watch him as he seems to be in a trance watching me.
I would worry that he was a statue if it wasn't for the light adjustments he makes shifting from foot to foot as if he is a bit uncomfortable. If he gets much more excited I’m afraid his pants will rip from the size of that bulge. I can’t help but wonder what he looks like naked. I've never seen a nude man and I really bet this one is impressive.
I finally decide to break the ice.
“Hello Imp.” I turn around quickly.
I can’t help but chuckle as he darts behind the tree then peeks back around.
“G’day Faery.” His voice is deep and masculine.
I could listen to him talk all day.
“Come join me. The water is cool.” I playfully take a hand full and let it slide down my damp body.
He studies me closely but stays behind the tree. Surely he isn’t afraid of me.
“Sorry, didn’t mean to intrude on your bath. I just came to fish.” The slight blush on his rugged cheeks is quite endearing.
I step onto the bank and swirl changing into a soft orange sheath instead of the barely there bikini I had on.
He steps out but stays close to the tree as if it’s some sort of refuge as he looks at me in intrigue.
“That’s cool how you can change your clothes like that.” He grins in fascination.
Oh yeah I can have a lot of fun with this one.
I finally coax him to sit and chat a bit. He is very nice.
I must intimidate men. He reminds me a bit of Obediah, shy and soft spoken. He answers my questions directly but doesn't offer much else. Getting him to open up is like pulling teeth.
We talk about the weather, the forest, and fishing. He really likes fishing. So I encourage him to teach me, not that I really want to learn to fish, but for some reason I find myself wanting to learn more about him. Especially the things that make him happy.
I meet him back the next day and explain to him how my mother likes to meddle and tell him about the big party mom is throwing. I leave out the part where it is for me to choose a mate. I figure as shy as he is, that would definitely frighten him off. I leave still not sure whether or not he will show. Part of me hopes he does.
