My eyes roam over the way her shimmering gold dress is clinging to her curves. Quinn is art. Her skin is a smooth, copper brown with chocolate colored curls pulled into a tight ponytail on top of her head and bright brown, almond-shaped eyes that could probably see through the depths of all my bullshit.
Quinn may be besties with Harlow, but that hasn’t stopped me from wondering what she’d look like bent over without that dress. I try not to fuck around with Harlow’s friends, but the way she is looking tonight… I’m willing to risk it all. Even though Harlow is our mutual friend, Quinn and I know little about each other, other than the basics.
From the time I’ve spent with Quinn, I’ve noticed she is about her business. Part of the reason I didn’t shoot my shot in the past is because she didn’t seem interested in the hook up shit. You can tell she’s the type who has a five-year plan and knows what she wants. Everything about her is meticulous. I prefer to live life in the moment and see where that takes me.
I’d fuck up her life in a heartbeat if she’d let me though. Tonight, she just might.
We reach the bar and she leans against it, giving me a better view of her ass. “You look thirsty.” She says to me with a smirk over her shoulder.
“Parched.” I say, standing next to her. She’s trying to play me and I’ll let her think that it’s working.
I order a beer, despite me swearing off drinking a couple of weeks ago, and she orders wine. Once we both have our drinks, we head to the table.
“Why did you cut your hair?”
“Why? Do I look better with locs?” I ask, avoiding the question.
She laughs and looks at me over her wine glass as she takes a sip. “I already told you once tonight that you look good. How often do you like to have your ego stroked?”
“As often as possible.” I say with a smirk. “Are you still in Texas?”
