It was a lunchtime flirtation – across fifty feet of empty air at about a hundred feet off the ground.

Lured by a complex of restaurants, Colby had discovered the newest mega movie theatre in town had some of the best eats and great lunchtime deals to help counter the busy nighttime crowds.

He's spotted her because her hair was a particularly vibrant shade of red. She'd caught him staring at the gingery spirals that cascaded down her shoulders in a wild frenzy and just smiled.

He'd smiled back, but that was all they could do. She was in the west tower's restaurant balcony and he was in the east tower across from her.

So they flirted using only body language.

She'd hold up a particularly good dessert and give it a thumbs up.

He'd hold up a cup of coffee and give it a thumbs down with an expression of disgust.

Colby would take his time taking off his coat, stretching his muscular frame before sitting down.

She once ate an apple so wantonly it made him swallow hard just watching.

Then one day he pointed to her then himself then the movie theatre entrance, eyes questioning.

As he waited, she held up her soda and made a plus sign.

Movie and drinks... That would work.

He held up seven fingers to tell her what time and she nodded, beaming.

Seven came and this time they were both on the right side.

"I'm Desiree," she said, even more lovely up close, her face alive with pretty freckles.

"I'm Colby." Her hand was warm in his and felt like it fit just right. "And I'm totally up for drinks after the movie."

"Great!" she enthused, gesturing to the twin balconies that led to the restaurants and bars. "My tower or yours?"
