With that, I saw the waiter approaching from the bar with two espressos. I tried to imagine myself sitting here naked and confident, that we would exchange a glance, that he would look at my body and approve of what he saw, and then he would leave, thinking I was out of his league.

The waiter placed our coffees on the table and Elisa thanked him before he left again.

“And?” she said.

“It was… terrifying,” I said, “I would have to hide.” The plotline of my book was going to need a bit of a rethink; sitting confidently in the nude didn’t seem very realistic at all.

One thought on “It Wouldn’t Happen Like That

  1. What an enchanting theme! A woman author taking a neophyte under her wing, explaining that “write what you know” is, in truth, a thing. Exciting concept, Kara, and your just-discovered blog is a delight!

    There are just so many exciting possibilities . . .
