Swift Scribbles: Again

She wanted to take me out for lunch, and she said so with a hand on the sleeve of my jacket.

 

I acted like the warmth from her fingers was too slight to make a difference to me and looked everywhere but at her mouth as she spoke. She came to the office at the behest of one of our latest clients – she was the company’s legal adviser.

 

Normally I wouldn’t be involved in such a meeting – signing official documents and what nots. But in light of several recent events…

 

I told her no. I didn’t – don’t fraternize with clients and seeing how they were new I’d rather not.

 

A smile appeared on her too-thin lips and she said she understood.

 

“I understand,” she said.

 

I still have a hell of a lot to learn about women.
