Their eyes met across a crowded courtroom, and nothing could have prepared Stephen for the encounter he was about to have. He was there to see a Linda Mitchell, having been told that she could be found in court. He needed an attorney, and she had been recommended. All he knew was that she was taking the case that he now witnessed coming to a conclusion, but as there were two female attorneys he didn’t know which one was Linda.
Patiently waiting for the courtroom to clear, he approached the first attorney to head towards the exit.
“Miss Mitchell,” he said, stepping in front of her.
“Yes, can I help you?”
Stephen looked into her eyes, knowing that they had watched him enter the courtroom, he felt something for this woman, and he actually found it hard to utter the words, as he continued to stare into her green eyes.
“Is something wrong?” she said, bringing him out of the gaze.
“Um, sorry, I um…I was told you could help me,” he replied, getting flustered. “My name is Stephen Clark.”
“Yes, and who told you I could help?”
“I telephoned your office, your secretary told me that you had a case coming to a conclusion, and that I might find you here if I hurried.”
“Well, what can I do for you?” she replied, noticing his smile.
“I’ve been accused of stealing by my employers, and need some legal advice.”
Linda checked her watch, then reaching into her brief case she brought out a business card, handing it over.
“Give me a call tomorrow, and I’ll arrange a meeting to discuss it.”
Stephen thanked her, and watched, as she left the courtroom, her beautiful long legs making it hard not to stare once more. He placed the card in his pocket and followed her lead.
By the time he phoned the next day, Linda had just been prepared to leave the office, heading once again for the court. She remembered his gaze, and decided to invite him to the office, after work. With that she left, heading out for another session in court.
By the evening Linda was very tired and was ready to call it a day, but upon reaching her office, she discovered Stephen waiting patiently outside.
“Oh, Mr. Clark, I’m sorry, I forgot you were coming to see me.”
“I can call again tomorrow if you like,” he replied, making a move to leave.
“No, you’re here now, so I’ll take down a few particulars, and then arrange an appointment for another meeting.”
They entered the office, with Stephen opening the door for her, which was something she liked, for there weren’t enough people with manners anymore. Getting inside, she decided to treat this as an informal meeting, and offered him a drink.
“I’ll have a Scotch if you’ve got one?” he said, taking a seat.
Linda poured the drinks and sat next to him, noticing his eyes move away from her body as she sat down. For the first time in ages she had erotic thoughts, just wondering what he would be like in bed, then discovering she was guilty of doing something he had done earlier, she was staring.
“Is something wrong?” he asked.
“Sorry, I was miles away.”
“I know what you mean, I did the exact same thing to you this morning, remember?”
Linda looked at him again, remembering his eyes, and wondered why she hadn’t spotted it before; his eyes were deep blue. Then she got down to business, by taking some details from him, and refilling his glass a couple of times. By the time they had finished they were feeling a bit merry, and were staring at each other even more.
Linda wanted to kiss him, but had a rule, never to mix business with pleasure. Stephen on the other hand was not so hampered, for he suddenly leaned forward and kissed her on the lips, taking her totally by surprise. At first she was stunned, but soon realized that she’d wanted this to happen, and decided to kiss him back.
