Old Friends

to ask
at dawn

“Did I scare you?” Adam joked from behind Letitia while they both kicked out their legs softly to keep afloat in the swimming pool.

She shook her head to dislodge water from her ears. “Not really. I wondered who had the nerve to hold me from behind.”

Swirling around to face him, she watched him flick both hands over his wet hair and his eyes grinned at her.

“How old are you?” he mouthed just as two men raced past doing the front crawl with their arms under water.

Lifting her hands out of the water, she pushed her hair out of her face. “All of twenty-nine.”

Floating closer to where she was, he chuckled. “You don’t look a day older than twenty-three.”

Even though she knew he was being a gentleman, she giggled as warmth crept up her neck.

It felt good to receive such glowing compliment from a man who wanted nothing from her. He hardly knew her.

“Thank you. I feel twenty-nine for sure.”

“What does that even mean?” His lips formed into a wide grin as if he had no clue what she meant.

Three young men swam past, but one of them winked at her as he lifted his head to take in air.

Adam had his back to them, so he did not notice.

And she tried not to grin. “You know, like I don’t feel the same as I did when I was fifteen. And you, how old do you feel?”

With one arm, he circled her waist and he led her to the pool edge. “Swimming here with you now I feel like I’m eighteen again. But I’m only thirty-five.”

He hauled himself to sit on the poolside.

“Come and sit beside me,” he told her giving her his hand to help her up the side of the pool.

She took his hand and she joined him on the cool tiles. “I would not have guessed your age. I thought you were under thirty.”

For her accolade, he caressed her shoulders with two fingers and made his way toward her neck. She skewed her head as she burst out giggling.

Already, sweet tickles dripped from his fingers through her cleavage with far too much speed.

Feeling self-conscious at his closeness, she tightened the rope of her bikini top and bottom when she stopped laughing.

“It feels good to hear you say that, Letitia. Are you dating actively at the moment?”

For several seconds she stared at him wide-eyed. Adam’s gaze was relentless as he waited for her reply.

“I’m keeping that close to my chest.” She got a kick out of needling him since she just found out he had man-sized jealous bones in his sculpted body.

“Don’t make me crawl through your chest in search of my answer.” The words spoken gruffly carried an underlying threat.

Unable to contain her shock, her eyes sparkled with excitement. “Not in front of everyone, you wouldn’t, Adam.”

When he leaned forward, his eyes assured her he intended to carry out his threat, so she promptly changed her response.

“Okay. I’m dating.”

No emotion flashed through his face as he asked. “Are you seeing someone in particular?”

Haiku Rhapsodies – Yet Another Review


, , , , ,

Hello my friends. It’s been awhile I know. 🙂  I’m so busy lately and this gives me little or no time for blogging. Just to let you know that I’m still around, I bring you a short but lovely review of my book Haiku Rhapsodies, by a satisfied customer on Amazon, Ama Wale. Thanks, Ama. 🙂 I am taking this opportunity to urge all of my friends who have purchased my book and yet to write a review on Amazon or elsewhere to please kindly do so. 🙂 You know how we authors lap up reviews. Those who haven’t bought copies should please do so also through Amazon. You won’t ever regret your decision.  🙂 Thanks you. 🙂
