SWEETNESS

.
He curled my name around his tongue twice before he uttered my name in a raspy vioce. “That’s me.” I replied perplexed and slightly annoyed.
.
I had only been on this island seventy two hours and I had already fought off fourteen proposals but their was something in his voice that had my eyes reaching for his face.
.
“Mi ah watch yuh fi ah while now!”
.
I pulled my glasses down my nose bridge and stared at his face with interest. “Dem call mi Polo.” He stretched out his hand and smiled all thirty two teeth, white and dazzling too. ” Karly” I gushed forgetting he was already well acquainted with my name.
.
“Yuh dance.”
.
I nodded gratefully accepting his smooth copper coloured hand I moved to his beat. I wasn’t sure if it was the Jamaican heat or the rum I had been drinking but there was something in the way he moved, the way he held me close and whispered words I had never heard directly to my cranium.
A few songs later and a burning sensation in the soles of my feet we hit the bar.
. “Whaever she need.” He instructed the bartender with authority.
.
“You should speak more kindly to the people who serve you!” I remarked, my english manners strange in this foriegn land.
.
“Him ah work fi mi, mi nuh work fi him.” He responded as politely as his accent would allow him. Accepting my drink from the bartender with a thank you I look back to see him staring at me and suddenly, I felt naked. “Dis might sound strange but yuh ago be my wife.”
.
I blushed uncontrollably dropping my gaze to the floor before his hand reached out and lifted my chin. Looking into his light brown eyes I relinqiushed my power to a spell that I had no antidote for.
