Hiding behind black glasses and a computer, Henry has spent each day at Klein Associates silently pining over his very beautiful co-worker. Now that Kate is available, Henry is ready to shed his quiet persona and go after what he wants.

Sitting in the conference room at our weekly office roundtable meeting, I spot Henry in a seat down at the end of the long table, looking at me. When our eyes meet, he gives me a sweet smile and a nod in greeting. I nod back, and wouldn’t you know it, the little tingle in my belly returns along with something else I equate to nerves.
I know I should be ecstatic about the new apartment, which I am mostly, but I am also oddly terrified about my coffee date with Henry tomorrow morning. Ever since I accepted the invitation, I have seen a different side to Henry.
He has always been polite—saying hello and goodbye when we pass—but now it is as if his confidence has grown exponentially in my presence. I am not saying we have heartfelt, deep conversations, but he is actually making eye contact now. His smile seems brighter; his eyes sparkle just a little more; and the cherry on top, the cutest, most devilish, little smirk has made an appearance on his face.
