Ash rested the leaf rake against the back wall and entered the shop. Lily turned to the sound of the door opening. It was a sliding glass door that she thought was a window, and she felt a strange flutter of anticipation as she saw Ash.
He smiled. “Hi, are you looking for a cup of coffee?”
Lily smiled in response.
“I’d love a cup of coffee. Are you open?” She looked around at the empty tables and realized the light was low down this end of the shop.
Ash nodded. “Oh yes. I’ll get you coffee”. He walked through the gap between the wall and the end of the counter, and disappeared for a moment. He came back drying his hands on a big sheet of blue, paper towel and brought out brilliant white coffee mugs.
“How do you take it?” His voice was low and appealing.
Lily felt a pull of attraction to him.
“Only a dash of half-cream,” she smiled and glanced at the cake platter.
Ash followed her eyes with his.
“Let me get you a slice of cake. The chocolate is the best you’ll ever taste. A local woman makes it, makes all the cake I sell in fact. Is that okay?”
Lily met his eyes and felt a wave of longing. He was very attractive, his eyes a darker blue than her own, his hair a shade darker than hers. He was tall and she could see the muscles beneath his chambray shirt as he moved. The cuffs were open and the sleeves of the shirt fell back to reveal his lightly tanned skin as he made the coffee. He reached to get a plate from the stack on the shelf above the coffee machine, and the shirt lifted to expose a band of his muscular back above the low-rise jeans he wore.
Ash hadn’t heard otherwise and so he took the cake tongs and chose a thick slice of the chocolate for her. He put it on the plate and gathered a fork and napkin.
“I’d love to sit with you for coffee, if you don’t mind. I’ve been out in the back garden tidying up. There were no customers.” He smiled and brought her cake to a nearby table setting it down carefully. Lily hadn’t answered. She was watching him. Ash secretly smiled again. ‘She’s definitely my winter girl.’
He hesitated before picking up both mugs of coffee and Lily answered.
“Please do sit with me.”
They sat opposite each other on the lime green chairs and Ash gazed at her for a few seconds before he picked up his coffee and drank some.
Lily took her mug sipping at the coffee gratefully. She put it down and picked up the fork to taste the cake.
Ash let her take a couple of bites before he spoke.
Lily looked into his blue eyes.
“Oh yes,” she answered, but she didn’t mean just the cake.
