TUESDAY TALES - WORD PROMPT "CHEST"

A snippet from our WIP, "Love, Lost & Found" written with Ben Tanner.This is the Tara and  Mick's first date on vacation in St. Thomas.
Tara closed the door to her room. Her palms were a little sweaty. She looked at the beads of moisture there and laughed at her own nervousness. Her room was two flights up. She walked down the stairs slowly as she was wearing high heels, apprehension mixed with anticipation sent a tingle up her spine.
As she neared the lobby, she stopped to peer in cautiously, wondering if Mick was actually going to show up. It wouldn’t be the first time a man got cold feet. 
Tara spied him before he saw her. Dressed in all his Marine finery, he looked devastatingly handsome. For a moment, she studied him from the hallway. There were so many medals on his chest and he stood so straight, wearing a slight frown on his face as his eyes searched the lobby. I’d never judge a man on his physical appearance alone, but a man in uniform…irresistible, sexy.  Mick seems to be…more he’s sweet and the Marines make him strong and tough, in a good way, right?  She couldn’t deny his sensuality, the sexual heat she absorbed from him made her want to melt in his arms. She cleared her throat, letting him know she was there.
Mick heard a noise behind him and turned. His eyes grew wide and a grin spread from ear to ear as his gaze traveled from her head to her painted toes peeking out from her white sandals.

Excellent use of the prompt, Jean. I enjoyed the read and will look forward to more. Having worked (as a civilian) on a Marine base, I know how gorgeous these fellows can be in their dress uniforms.

You set the perfect scene, Jean. Nothing like a man in a uniform. Can't wait for next week.
