One Inch of Lace

 by Amrita Valan

Slouching on the floor rug in the darkened room, he gawked at my legs. I was slow dancing with a friend. 

 After the dance I settled down on the floor. He throatily whispered, "You dance well." While my buddy got us drinks he asked my number.

 Over the phone we clicked, instantaneously; he wooed me with wit and chivalry. 

"So you liked my legs or my dancing?" I quipped.

 "An inch of frothy white lace peeping from under your saffron dress," he delivered deadpan.

 Long pause.

Burning cheeks transmitted heat through the receiver. 

"Loved it and you," he sotto voiced.
