She adjusted her shirt as she opened the door to a smiling Samantha.
“Hi,” Samantha greeted in a sing-song voice.
Cynthia smiled leisurely and was about to greet her back when her thoughtful brown eyes caught him, standing there, just outside the door!
What was he doing here? There must be a mistake. Cynthia couldn’t decide if she was hallucinating or seeing correctly.
“Are you okay?” Samantha chipped in as she snapped her fingers in front of Cynthia’s face.
Cynthia blinked rapidly as she came back to her senses. She stepped aside to let Samantha come in. He also had a look of shock on his face but quickly changed his expression to one she could not read.
As he entered the apartment and walked past her, she got a whiff of his woody, clean scent. It was so like him to smell good; it was his trademark. She could feel her palms get sweaty as she closed the door and turned round.
“Cynthia meet David. David, Cynthia.”
Cynthia didn’t know what she was supposed to do. Should she smile, shake his hands, or say something? She didn’t need to think too long because David took the initiative and spoke up.
“I believe Cynthia and I have met before,” he said tersely with a tight little smile at the corner of his lips. How dare he smile?
