Let’s keep it tight folks.
My fourth day on vacation. My fourth chance to sip coffee in a cafe before my wife wakes up, and watch people. Every morning there’s a beautiful older woman at the red door across the way. She doesn’t knock… she waits. Eventually the door swings open… not revealing who is inside. Each day, I make up a different story about her, who she is seeing and why… a maid, a governess, a paramour? My imagination runs wild.
Today she’s late. She fidgets… shows off her beautiful ass! I’m riveted. She sits on the stoop… pulls her knees up… quite a show! The men at the next table comment in Spanish – words I don’t know but they aren’t kind.
She finally strolls over the cafe. The owner hands her a steaming cup. She plunks down in the chair opposite me.
“Tourista?” She asks. Ugh.
“Si,” I nod and wink, feeling bold.
“Hilton?” she fishes for my lodging. I shake my head, pointing West, naming a small bed & breakfast place near the beach about 10 blocks away. She smiles. I am enchanted.
She points up the hill in the other direction. “Mi casa,” she whispers. She rises and takes my hand.
