Saturday Snippet…workplace

From If You Hear Her

“Well, if you’re going to keep staring at me, then maybe you should introduce yourself.”

“Ezra King.  And you are…?”

She held out her hand.  “Lena.  Lena Riddle.”

A warm, rough palm pressed against hers.  Strong.  Calloused, like he spent a lot of time working with his hands. Damn, better and better.  Her libido was going to be hard to control here in a minute, especially if he kept staring at her.

“So, Ezra King, why are you staring at me?”

“Because you’re beautiful.”

Lena didn’t blush often.  She rarely felt self-conscious.  But in that moment, she could feel the rush of blood to her cheeks and she had to fight the urge to squirm around on her seat and fidget.

“Ahhh.  Well, thank you.”   Behind her, she heard the squeak as the kitchen doors opened and she could have heaved a sigh of relief.

“Here you go, Lena.” Mike, the assistant chef, set down her lasagna.  Her mouth watered at the smell.

“Thanks, Mike.”

“Sir, you had the wings?”


As Mike retreated back into the kitchen, Ezra muttered, “I’d rather have the lasagna, though.  How come you could still get it?”

“Because I made it and set it aside until I was done with work.”  She shot a smile in Ezra’s direction.  “I’m one of the chefs here at the Inn.”
