A soft knock on his door drew his attention away from the window. He turned his chair to see Allyson Briscoe enter his office.
His cock immediately came to attention.
Mentally ordering his randy hormones to behave, he summoned a smile for the beautiful blonde. “Hey, Ally.”
“Hi.” She came closer and stood less than a foot from his chair. Bain had to look up to see her face. His eyes tried to stop at her breasts, but he ordered them to behave, too. “I need you to fill out a W-4 for me please.”
She laid the form on his desk. Now no more than six inches from her, he detected the light floral scent of her cologne. Or maybe the scent came from her hair. The blond mass of curls fell over her shoulders and halfway down her back. He’d love to bunch his hands in it while he kissed her.
Clearing his throat, Bain rolled his chair a few inches away from her. “I’ve already filled out one.”
“I know, but I can’t find it. I put off filing as long as possible and it was in a stack on my desk. I also pulled some old papers to shred. I guess I put your form in the shred pile instead of the filing pile.”
An honest mistake, one anyone could have made. “No problem. I’ll take care of it and drop it by your office.”
“I don’t mind waiting.” She turned and leaned against the desk, her palms resting on the surface behind her. The new position emphasized her breasts in the gray sweater she wore. The size of small apples, they would fill his hands perfectly.
