“Oh, come on! Reward the guy for being a good sport, a really good sport as I’ve heard his stomach growl a couple of times. And has he complained? No! So this can be his reward, to see you in this breathtaking bra and panties set. Plus I kinda already promised the twins that they’d get to see you in one and it’s not an option for all four of us to file in here,” She said waving her hand to indicate the small room. I really didn’t want to walk out of the dressing room barely covering my jewels, but Shae was right. Luke had been very patient, even giving his opinion on the shoes. “Really!? You have to think about this? I mean, the guy has already seen you in a bra and stuck his tongue down your throat. It’s too late to start thinkin rational now! PLUS, you look sexy!” Shae stood with one hand on the door handle and the other holding me. She was yell whispering trying to convince me to do something I wanted to do anyway.
‘What’s the worst that can happen?’ I asked myself.
“What the hell, I’ll do it.” Shae’s smile spread across her face as she opened the door for me. I placed my hands on my hips and strutted into the waiting area.
Luke’s face as I walked out was memorable and totally worth it! As soon as I was in his line of view, Luke shot out of his chair and stood awkwardly as he watched me. The adorable blush crept up his face once more as he took in my body. After a few more seconds of staring me up and down with his mouth open wide, Luke walked to me. He grabbed my hands and kissed them all over. As he talked, he gazed deep into my eyes.
“Stephanie, you’re killing me! You like amazingly beautiful and the underwear isn’t half bad either,” snickered Luke once the shock wore off. He leaned forward, placing his mouth next to my ear. When he talked, the cool air from his mouth was relaxing as it blew in my ear. “You know what you do to me when you’re fully dressed, you can only imagine how my body’s responding to you in your sexy underwear. Maybe one day I’ll have the pleasure of taking them off of you and showing you exactly how my body is reacting.” This time it was my face that was flushed. I hadn’t even decided if I liked Luke yet, and here he was suggesting that we’ll one day have sex. I hit his chest and pushed him away, nervously laughing.
“Well just so you know I can’t do that until I’m married. My philosophy is: first find the one then have some fun.” I winked at him try to cover how taken aback I was by his words.
“I think I might have found the one and I’ll spend all summer trying to prove it to her.” Luke’s heavy gaze was making me flustered. I tried to relieve the tension with humor. “Oh? So you’ve fallen for Shae. Who would’ve thunk it.” I giggled and once again hit his chest. This time he grabbed my hand and sent me crashing into his body.
“I’m not the one he’s making goo goo eyes with in the middle of the store.” Shae’s comment surprised me, pulling me out of my Luke moment. I stood up tall, turned around, and walked back to the dressing room. I made sure to twist my hips as I sashayed away knowing that my butt would be on display. Before I closed the dressing room door, I looked back over my shoulder to see Luke grabbing his chest faking a heart attack. Whew that guy!
I took off the sexy underwear, replacing it with my own, and got dressed. Luke had me feeling confident and sexy as I returned to my boring jeans and tee shirt. I’m glad Shae was giving me a makeover. If he was falling for me in jeans and tee shirts, I can only guess what’ll happen if I actually try to impress him.
I picked up the underwear sets we had decided on and purchased them. Luke was more than willing to carry those bags knowing what was in them.
As promised Shae allowed us to take a lunch break, well I was calling it dinner break since my watch read 4:30. We made our way to the food court and everyone decided what they’d eat. Shae took the twins to get sub sandwiches and then stopped to get a burrito. Luke followed me to Chinese Express, deciding to eat whatever I chose. Although I told him he didn’t have to, he carried my bags in one hand and held my hand with his other.
We all met back up at the tables against the back wall, not wanting to be near the commotion of obnoxious teenagers. As every summer, the food court was packed with many groups of friends who all seemed to be hanging out. Shae and I usually stirred clear of the groups. Two summers ago there was an issue with security picking out the group of black teenagers. Once they even called the police reporting gang-like activities. As if sitting in the mall’s food court is gang activity? The problem was never resolved and we didn’t want to deal with that.
