“I know. You're pretty popular around here” he said with slight hint of irritation in his tone before continuing, “What bothers me is why you're on my property” he said going straight to the point.I pulled my hands back and sighed.Oh he was not an easy one. I chuckled internally at the realization and lifted my chin up.  “I was just passing by-” i wanted to move my hand around the man's chest seductively but with his mood and temperament, he would definitely embarass me so i gave up and walked confidently to my car.Then i banged my head on the wheel calmly.
