Hector had trouble concentrating.
“Stop eyeing the busty boss, and get to it!” Alan, commanded him, mouth twisting around a chewed up twig.
“I wasn’t even looking at her bust – quick, she’s coming! Look busy!”
“I have been busy.”
A white summer dress breezed towards them, skimming slim calves. She tapped on the carved wood, sighed and cocked her head. “Boys, this is no good. It needs to be more… interesting. More depth. It’s too shallow.” The wind carried her off.
“I think she’s talking about you.” Hector grinned. Then, “You think she was flirting with me?’
“Work!” growled Alan.
Well, one can always wish, Hector.

Hector has some self confidence there. Loved the description of the dress breezing. Nicely done.
A lovely sense of place there
nice realistic work setting and you captured a few things here – how he “has been working” but the other guy was maybe not so much –
I hope she’s a good boss! 🙂
Ha ha – loved the dialogue between these two. Great little story – and maybe Hector’s dream will come true. 🙂

I think she may burst Hector’s bubble!
Great dialogue that really brings your characters to life. I think Hector may be barking up the wrong tree with the lady in the skimming white dress. Punching above his weight 🙂
I had a (guy) friend in college who told me he looked forward to spring and summer when the girls all wore floaty, sometimes sheer dresses. This story took me back there 🙂
Sometimes you gotta dream high! This was a fun piece, Fatima.
Lovely sense of atmosphere.
