A Latte Meeting

2021
A meet cute is where the hero and heroine meet for the first time. A staple of any romance book or movie.
My attempt to combine a love of coffee and my favourite genre.

1. Chapter One

A waterfall of coffee. Papers flew as Mackenzie collided with a solid chest. A large hand gripped her arm, stopping her from joining the spilled beverage. Her cheeks flared red. Eyes widening at his stained shirt.

“Oh. My. God. I am so sorry.”

Scrambling for a napkin, silent thanking herself for grabbing a few, she dabbed at his shirt. All too aware of the way the soaked fabric clung to his body. Focus on the ruined material, not what it is revealing.  A chuckle made her pause.

“My fault entirely. It’s what I get for not paying attention to my surroundings.”

All air left her as she lifted her head up. She already knew his physique. What she hadn’t know was he towered over her. Green eyes swept over her. Strong jawline dappled in brown. A slightly hawkish nose. Brown hair, some strands streaked with a golden glow. His gaze dipped down to her arm. Realisation hit him and he let go. Part of her wished he hadn’t.

“Once again, I am sorry about that,” she said. Embarrassment had her turning on her heels.

“Wait!” A pleading tone in his voice. “At least, let me make it up to you with a new coffee.” He held out a hand. “I’m Ryder.”

She took it. “Mackenzie.” Her lips curving into a smile.

He returned her smile. “Well Mackenzie, what can I get for you?”
