This Tangled Thing Called Love by Marie Astor
As she exited the lobby of her building, Claire had a funny feeling that she was being watched – the eerie, nagging sensation one gets when being stared at. She looked around, but seeing that the street was empty, she attributed her discomfort to the dress she was wearing. It was new and to her mind, way too revealing – she had bought it at her friend’s Amber’s suggestion and now, she wished she had opted for a different outfit. Claire pulled on the hem of her dress that barely covered her mid-thigh – usually she never wore skirts above the knee, but Amber had insisted that she look super-hot for the party. There would be fashion models and movie starlets, and if Claire were not careful, David’s eyes just might wonder, Amber had cautioned her. Claire had laughed Amber off – it took more than flashy looks to impress David, but she had bought the dress nonetheless, along with a set of Spanx, which was now pinching her behind mercilessly.
Claire could hardly believe her eyes when she spotted an empty cab heading her way – she flailed her hand, instantly checking for possible competition – the simple act of hailing a cab could easily turn into a battle on the Upper East Side.
“Mercer and Houston,” Claire gave the cab driver the directions and leaned back against the car seat. She opened her purse and checked her reflection in the mirror for the umpteenth time. Normally, she was not one to fuss about her looks, but when it came to David, she wanted to look perfect.
