Lamp Low #2


Weeks later, walking just after sunset, I spot a woman on the second floor from the back alley. I see head and shoulders facing the window and moving vertically through opened curtains. Her features hard to make out in much detail in front of the lamp light. She humps faster as I steadily approach my building.

Excitedly, I keep staring but hear no noises as I approach despite the window being open. Consequently losing interest, I stop gawking without considering it much.

In retrospect, I should have served her honourably by paying more attention; perhaps her intensity depended on it.

    Not sure that I will continue this. Had not really meant for it to be a series, mostly just posted it as such for the sake of brevity on a subject I need not think of much. Glad you enjoyed it though, thank you. =)
