“Let me serve a Harmonian lunch?” Swanii asked, then added with a sweet smile, “It won’t bite or kill! I promise.”
He smiled. He was not fussy when it came to food, being born under the traveling star he has eaten the best and worst the universe could offer. He remembered trying a delicious looking fruit in one of the planets and becoming brain dead, then being rescued by locals who planned to have him for food.
Then there were those which were divine or unleashed hellish torment in the body. So, he could easily surrender to his charming host.
He noticed with great curiosity that the house had no doors, there were only curtains for privacy.
“You don’t need doors? You mean that there are no intruders or burglars?” he asked.
“No, the main door is enough to keep wild creatures away and people of Harmony respect each other.” She answered.
“I wish we could learn the trick.” He tried hard but just could not imagine a earth woman acting like Swanii did, picking up an alien, she has never seen before, taking him to a trip, inviting him inside her home with nowhere to run…his mind failed.
“Come, let me show you my little kitchen.” She walked towards one of the doors and he followed. There was a beautiful garden inside that small room, filled with plants laden with flowers and fruits; the room was filled with their fragrance.
“I could not smell a thing from outside, even when we were right on the other side of that curtain…” he said.
“Those curtains stop light, air from leaking out. If we want the fragrance of any specific fruit, flower we just make a vase or fill up a fruit bowl with them.” She said.
The more he was seeing his host the more he was getting charmed by her, she was beautiful, there was no doubt about that, but it was not perfection of limbs, it was perfection of her being, she was as free as a wisp of wind or a wave in ocean. She had the same seductive charm of them in every little gesture, smile, walk, talk… watching her was a delight beyond words. She held herself with a great poise, ease and dignity. Confidence glowed like an aura from her being, as if she was not afraid of anything or anyone.
She smiled a lot, and it lit up her face like a flower. Her soft hair, close cropped looked like a halo around her face, glowing like red wires in light, her eyes talked more than her lips, her face was soft, sensuous and she did not even tried to chain her sensuality, it spilled out of her like fire, glowing, burning.
When she was not talking she was humming, her voice was very sweet like the call of a songbird just out of sleep. A little incoherent a little clear… once in a while she sang out a line or two in an unknown language. She was walking around the room, touching one plant, tilling the ground under the other, apparently oblivious of the man who was staring at her.
“So what do you want to have?” she asked, breaking his trance, looking at him with a mischievous twinkle in her eyes. He blushed a bit after being caught by her- staring!
“I don’t eat non vegetarian much, I prefer fruits and vegetables. If you want non vegetarian I will take you to my sister’s for dinner, you will love her cooking.” She said.
“I will eat anything you will serve. Your choice please…” he smiled.
She picked up some of the fruits and they made for the next room.
