Author's Note: I should warn you that this book is in parts instead of chapters. Originally the intention was going to be a cell phone novel, but as the story evolved I became more interested in being the cliffhanger queen rather than writing for the genre itself. I should also let you know there are relatable characters in the stories that appear in my other books, which can be found in my bookstore on my website.  


Part One 

It had been three days since he had seen her last. Rob had a schedule he stuck to and she was apart of it. 

Five-thirty a.m.: get off work. By six, he was getting breakfast and coffee and then at six-thirty he was turning down his street where he had seen her at the bus stop on her way to work. He could tell by the way she was dressed she was on her way to work. She didn't wear a uniform, but she was dressed in business attire. Except on Fridays, she usually wore some jeans or a nice blue jean skirt that accentuate her muscular calves, her thick thighs and her nice grippable hips. 

There was a time or two he had been tempted to stop and talk to her but for some reason he had a feeling she was above his station. It wasn't that he was intimidated by her. He just felt she most likely was taken or she was one of those 21st century busy women who had no time for anything. 

A certain respect came to mind when he saw her and seeing her at the bus stop gave him assurance there was A God and He still made beautiful things man could enjoy looking at. 




Part Two 


On the third day in a row when he didn't see her, he began to worry yet it seemed futile. He found himself unable to go about his regular day as normal, curious to her whereabouts. As he was getting off work the next morning he was oblivious to anyone as he clocked out and hurried to his car. He was way ahead of schedule by the time he reached the gas station which wasn't that far her bus stop. He looked down the street before going in to pay for gas, but did not see her. So occupied in getting back outside, he disregarded getting the cheap coffee. 

Coming back to his car, he pumped his gas, but kept his eyes glued on the bus stop. Just as he was replacing the lid on his tank, she walked across the street and stood there. 

Rob's heart raced in excitement just seeing that today was a Friday and she wore the delicious blue jean skirt. Jumping in his car, he almost burned rubber driving out of the station. He forced himself to slow his roll as he neared his street to turn down.
