    Indigo Jones was a fine “high yella” sista
    She was ripe at the of 26 but didn’t look a day
    over 22. She had an uncanny way of making
    men aware if what she brought to the table
    as far as sexual liberation was concerned.
    In other words, “sistagirl was on like that!"

    She owned a corner office in the Towers
    Office complex working as a Vice President
    of a prestigious advertising agency in
    downtown Los Angeles in the same building,
    but on a different floor.

    I on the other hand, was a partner with one
    of the most powerful consulting firms on the
    West coast. Yeah, I was bringing in major
    dollars and all the women in the office knew it.

    Anyway, I remember one morning I came
    in the office where she worked. I knew some
    of the executives there since my firm did business
    once or twice with Indigo’s booming agency.

    I had been running late because of an all-nighter
    with some of the fellas, this one of which had
    me feeling a little tired and a lot more hung over.

    I spotted Indigo out of the corner of my eye as I
    proceeded to the office of one of the manager’s
    that I knew. She was up to her usual temptress
    antics-slowly, but surely seducing all the men;
    brothas and gray boys alike, but she did so with
    just her eyes and her very feminine mannerisms.

    Now remember I said that I was bringing home
    major figures and all the women knew it?
    Well, I stand corrected because all the women
    with the exception of Indigo, knew it but I
    felt she had an idea—call it a man’s intuition.
    I drew that conclusion due to several “brushes
    with fire” that I encountered with Miss Indigo.

    The first time I ran into her was at a typical
    “watercooler” setting in the building. If she
    noticed me then, she played it off hella cool
    because the sista didn’t even bat an eye when
    I walked by and lightly, but accidentally, brushed
    up against her nice little petite ***.

    What gave her away was a note I had gotten a
    couple of days later. It was placed under my door
    in a little pink envelope. It read: “Do you always
    go around feeling sista’s ***** in public?” It was
    simply signed “IJ” so I knew right away who it was.

    Needless to say, I was a little hesitant about
    watercooler walk-bys because of the previous
    episode, so I steered clear of little Miss Indigo
    for a quick minute due to slight apprehension.

    My next two encounters happened within a span of
    a week’s time. At the firm, we have that co-ed
    washroom thing going on just like on television.

    The second time I bumped into her, she was coming
    in the washroom as I was going out. The clumsy
    little motions that we both made were kind of funny
    in an odd sort of way.

    She was reaching to push the door while I was pulling
    to leave out. She stumbled a bit but quickly regained
    her composure, or so I thought.

    “****, you could say excuse me?” she snapped and
    gave me a look that could kill.

    I dismissed it by accentuating the positive, “at least
    she looked at me”. That set the tone for good things
    to come with Miss Jones and I.
