The dainty neck warmer she wore was haunting my unconscious mind. I could not get my mind off of the sight, even after not seeing her for over two days.
Did she wear it just to tantalize passersby, or was it inadvertent? Unfortunately, I will never know because, it was just a fleeting glance as the car went by. I never got her name, nor that of any of her friends.
I should have just stopped and expressed my feelings to her on the spot, but that would have been very inappropriate, as she could have not been any older than thirteen or fourteen, and I am over fifty, and very much in love with my wife.
So, I will just have to move on and eventually forget all about the beauty I saw in that fleeting moment.
This is my story inspired by Three Word Wednesday.
The words for 3WW CCXXXI: dainty, haunting, tantalize.
