At Home with McKenzie
Most of what was on television was mind-numbing rubbish but, on occasion, that was just what McKenzie needed! Not tonight, however. He had spent a very underwhelming day and was looking for stimulation. In contrast, McKenzie's wife had been driving here and there throughout her busy day and she was ready for mindless, unstimulating TV to help her unwind and slow down.
When he could stand it no more, McKenzie let his mind wander into the nooks and crannies of his memories looking for what he could find there..….
Maria sat down on the vacant seat at McKenzie’s table, her back as straight as a poker. The slim good-looking waiter, no more than a boy, arrived instantly and slowly eyed Maria up and down. He deliberately licked his lips and almost imperceptibly pushed-out his still-forming hips in Maria’s direction.
‘Por favor’, said McKenzie, unheard. Coughing far-too-loudly, he said it again.
‘Perdóneme’, the waiter said abstractly not taking his eyes off Maria’s pursed lips.
‘Dos cafes con leche’, said McKenzie, obviously annoyed at the distinct lack of attention he was being given.
‘Ahora mismo’, said the boy with the voice of a trained Hollywood actor as he drifted off in slow-motion into the café. If it was a movie, the camera would have cut from the waiter to a close-up of Maria’s captivating face, her eyelids dropping coyly to conceal a delicate blush on her impeccable cheeks then dissolving into a misty filter and cut.
However, this was not a movie set per se, it was every inch real life and in this seduction race it was neck-and-neck between Maria and the waiter. The question was; who was the seducer and who was being seduced?
The whole scenario made McKenzie sick to the pit of his stomach. If he could have been anywhere else, he would have. Right now there was a job to be done and his part was to delicately extract the information he had been sent to get and deliver it, post-haste, to his employers on the coast.
