A Wish Unfulfilled


She was young, and pretty. Maybe 19 years old, long straight brown hair framing the fine features of her face. I felt her eyes upon Me, and looked up to meet them with My own gaze. I held it, an expression of calm, confidence and strength on My face, comfortable with her even though I didn't know her, and never would. After a moment I raised My left eyebrow in a mischevious query, then softened My gaze and smiled slightly, warmly, to reassure her that there was no danger. I saw her posture relax in response and she smiled too, tentatively, cautiously, uncertain of the propriety of it all, yet tempted by the desire that I saw in her eyes. Her full lips parted slightly, then her face reddened and she cast her eyes downwards. I took a deep breath and sighed softly, before turning to collect my coffee and bagel, then headed back out to the parking lot. She raised her head towards me as I approached. I looked into her eyes for the last time, tilted my head slightly in chivalrous acknowledgement and gave a gentle smile, as I passed her on my way out the door.
