At lunch everyone was pleasant making small talk over the Mexican food that had been brought in. The afternoon started innocuously. I was still trying to figure out how to broach the subject with Eve. Finally, when we went on the first afternoon break, I asked her to step outside for some fresh air. Eve grabbed a soda and followed me out to the warm air. I maneuvered her away from the door into an area secluded by a wall and some shrubbery.Once there I pulled Eve to me and kissed her. Ive been waiting all day for that.I was beginning to wonder whether you were going to today.Of course, I said. Last night was amazing. Im just sorry we didnt have more time. I really notice a difference in your attitude today and it makes you amazingly sexy.You are so sweet. Ive been thinking about tonight too and looking forward to it but I wasnt sure how much you were wanting to do. I guess I wasnt sure about all of what happened. Some of it feels like a dream. Eve kissed me this time.Careful, I said, feeling a slight rising in my loins, you dont want to get me too excited before we go back into class. Our stuff is there so we cant leave.Oh, we arent going yet. As we walked back into the building Karen was standing in the hall near our conference room. She smiled as we walked past. Enjoy your walk? she said. We acknowledged her.When Eve and I sat back down at our computers they told us that we had an extra fifteen minutes while the software engineers incorporated the final changes from the morning session. I shot Eve an e-mail: Karen seems nice. She knows what happened and got a kick out of it.Eve responded: Agreed, she has been looking at you all day. Its a good thing Im here or she would be all over you.I beg to differ, I think she has been looking at you. I get a sense that it’s you that she would be all over.Not really my bag, although there is a time and a place for everything. Eve added.Its called college, I responded.Eve barely suppressed a laugh. Yes there were those days in college when we all did that and had fun, but I havent since.Of course we are in a class like college.But I dont know...... Eve was grasping for reasons.Youve opened up to me in some special ways, why not invite Karen back to the hotel for a drink after work and see what happens. You never know. You can go back to X knowing what you did, never tell him, and know that you are a more open, sexual person than he could ever imagine, and take that power and hold on to it for the rest of your life. What happens here stays here. It may ‘not really be your bag, but what does ‘not really mean?Eve was silent for a while. She sat for a minute, looking at her screen, digesting my e-mail. Although we were sitting next to each other the conversation had been electronic. Im not sure I could have said those things to Eves face. After that minute Eve arose without saying anything to me and left the room. After about five minutes she returned and started to type. I ran into Karen in the ladies room. I invited her to drinks in the lobby bar at 5. She has to run and let her dog out and will meet us at 6. I think you may be right because after I asked her she really smiled at me.Excellent, lets play it by ear. My mind was shot for the afternoon.
