I stood in the communications center chatting with one of the dispatchers while I sipped my coffee, when the sound of strong, solid, confident steps reached my ears. I leaned back from where I stood to get a better angle down the hall. 

Holy hell, Greek gods really did exist. I had never believed it before, but today, I saw one in the living, breathing flesh. Even the harsh flickering yellow fluorescent lights that lit the industrial-looking hallway did nothing to distract from this masterpiece. His black dress shoes reflected the light as they rapped out a cadence on the plain white floor covering. His black dress pants held the perfect crease as they slithered up his legs. With each step forward, the muscles bunched as they pushed against the polished cotton. A simple silver buckle on his dress belt winked at me, taunting me.

I locked my jaw to contain my drool. His tan dress shirt with thin black stripes, top button undone, and sleeves rolled up set off his physique to perfection, as if tailored for him. 

His chin was down as he stared at the floor. Could he feel my gaze stripping him naked? Was that why he slowly lifted his chin? Immediate recognition lit his face, and something flickered in his bright blue eyes. The grin that spread over his full lips dipped ever-so-slightly on the right. Holy hell was right! This man could make an angel fall from grace with just a smile. 

“There she is,” his words bounced off the plain beige walls. 

A shiver threatened my spine; I pulled my shoulders back and stopped it. I moved to approach him, forcing myself to act normal and not like a bitch in heat. How many heads had this man turned without his noticing?

“Good morning, kid,” I joked and forced my heartbeat back to normal. 

“How are you this morning, Mack?” His smile grew wider as I stopped a foot in front of him. He leaned forward slightly and tipped his head to the right, something I noticed he did when he was comfortable. His shoulders were more relaxed than the straight-backed position he used when around unfamiliar people. 

I had also noticed that he normally wore a soft smile on his lips that would quickly widen, and he always looked people in the eye when he spoke.

How rare for a man to not only listen when you spoke, but actually focus on you and appear to contemplate the words you were saying. Although in our job, men were better than most at making that eye-to-eye contact. They were always looking for clues that people were giving out, watching the body language to get the full meaning of their words.

“I’m fine, thank you.” Body language, I shook my head as I walked past him to enter the unit and set about trying to clear my mind from the ogling I had just done. What I wouldn’t do to let my body talk to his. Our light banter continued as he waited for his coffee, it was only when he was pouring his cup that I turned back to face him. 

He looked so young, and maybe that’s why I chided myself when I found my gaze running down his backside and noticing how snugly his slacks fit over it. 

It’s been said that women in their forties are in the prime of their lives. They know what they want and generally they go after it. Yeah, not this time, I thought to myself sadly.
