Azure peered through the wavy glass pane again. No one in sight. Maybe they had both disappeared into the back room. Or maybe she’d stumbled upon a secret romance? Nah, he was much too young for the old gal. Besides, he’d stared at Azure the entire time she’d argued with the frustrating woman.
Accepting defeat, even though it meant coming back to town later, she swung around and nearly ran into the dark-haired man who had been inside the shop moments before.
She stepped backward, and so did he.
“I’m sorry! I didn’t see you.” She gushed out the apology, and then wondered why.
He’d been just as much at fault. In fact…was he following her?
He didn’t say a word. Just stood still and smiled, a sly sideways smile like he knew something she didn’t. She looked into his deep green eyes. Strange tingles zapped through her, like riding on a zip-line. Daring, exhilarating, and a little disturbing all at the same time.
Flustered, she glanced to the side and caught her reflection in the wide display window. Odd, there was only her reflection. She turned back around to speak, but he was gone. Maybe her mind was playing tricks on her, or maybe he was never there at all.
