Outside, the sun beat down from a cloudless sky with a fierce heat. Tina stood and looked up, shielding her eyes with her hand. Tall, dressed in short shorts and open white shirt, she had long, tanned legs,beneath her shirt the promise of  a large bust and shoulder length wavy auburn hair. Tina felt tired and hot sticky, and her hair stuck to her head with the heat of the sun together with the effort of shifting all manner of boxes as she moved in.


Whew,” she said, downing a few glugs of water from the bottle. Trickles of perspiration trickled down inside her shirt. Replacing the lid she held the bottle against her forehead and ran it down one cheek to try and achieve a little coolness from the ice cold bottle. Looking up she became aware of someone's eyes watching her.

  4. It's always the way - when you are looking your worst, along someone comes. It sounds as though being hot and sticky would not deter this person, however. Looking forward to reading more.

  5. Even though she might be a bit sweaty, sounds like someone's getting an eyeful!

  10. Sounds like a Texas summer! Maybe whoever is watching will help her with the boxes so she can get out of the sun...
