How Does She Sell?

How Does She Sell?

A Story by Daniel James Cardis

Has someone, some random stranger or even some you know ever caught your eye? Have they ever hypnotized you without even trying?

She was a delicate looking women, tightly wrapped up in a think scarf for her neck with a matching tweed suit that hugged her sides. She looked like she was just warm enough in her wooden stall selling wooden puzzles, wooden sculptures and some very nicely varnished wooden chess boards in the dark winter evening. Lashings of cold air boomed into the side of her shack, to my dismay she never did flinch.
This dainty women with skin almost pale as a sheet, her hair scarlet, once again, with matching lipstick and large narrow rimmed black glasses was looking down concentrating on some knitting, her hands were furiously working although her face showed no sign of tension. Her eyes would glance upwards on occasion, her eyes not dainty in any way, were a striking, fierce pair of dark brown eyes, that shone onto the world like the scope of a sniper rifle. As fear began to set in from the piercing rifle scope, her big red lips curled and let out an astonishingly cute grin, which in turn realized a wide loving smile, one couldn't help but return,
and my question had it's answer.
