Addie looked around the studio, noting the obvious. “They’re boxes of clay.”
Josh chuckled. “No wonder they’re so heavy. How the hell do you lift them?” He looked at her. She was tiny compared to him. If he thought they were heavy, he wondered how she was able to lift them. Addie couldn’t be more than five foot five. Nicely built, she wasn’t stick-figure thin, but she wasn’t at all heavy either. She had curves in all the right places; something to hold on to, as his friends would say.
“Well, I’m a lot stronger than I look.”
Josh laughed as Addie held both of her arms out in a strongman pose, pretending to flex her muscles. “Oh, I bet you are.”
She joined in with his laughter, her smile just lighting up her face.
Addie was breathtaking; a natural beauty, who didn’t need to cover herself with gobs of makeup. Not like the women he was used to being with. He wondered what it was about her that affected him so much.
“By the way, I don’t think we were formally introduced. I’m Addie.”
Walking toward him, she extended her hand.
Josh smiled as he reached out, his large hand enveloping hers.
Addie’s touch was warm. “Nice to meet you, Addie. I’m Josh.” They stood there a few seconds longer, staring at each, their hands still clasped until he finally noticed and awkwardly pulled away. Smooth move! “I uh, need to get back to the bar. I’m working almost every night this week. Why don’t you stop in? I’d love to buy you a drink.” He smiled and raised his eyebrow at the pun he’d just made.
“Buy me a drink?” Addie laughed. “Didn’t you say you owned the bar?”
“Ah, you were paying attention and not just checking me out.” The tone of his voice wavered as he flirted with her.
Addie’s mouth gaped. “Checking you out? I’m not the one who was staring at my ass as I worked!”
He laughed and held his hands up in surrender. “Okay, you got me there!” His demeanor changed. “Seriously, I’d love for you to come in for a drink. Please?” he asked, flashing her a flirtatious grin.
“I’ll try.” Addie smiled.
Giving her a quick once over, his eyes traveled down to her feet and back up to meet her gaze. Pointing to the front of her blouse, his lips curled to a smirk. “Uh…you might want to check your buttons.” He chucked as Addie looked down at her unevenly buttoned blouse, closed her eyes, and
