What if you are attracted to a co-worker?

It was a beautiful late afternoon. Golden light edged green leaves and slanted into my office. Spring had come and, as the saying goes, love was in the air. I noticed how attractive my colleague was. We'd been working long hours on a project, and right at that moment he seemed irresistible. "Fortunately," I thought, "he's not in the least interested in me because he's happily married. And anyway, he wouldn't be interested because I am definitely not in his league of attractiveness." I considered these points fortunate because I was married, too, had a baby, and these feelings were totally inappropriate. I then noticed a change in his expression.

He, too, was realizing that it was a beautiful day and love was in the air, and that I was a woman, and that we had become fond of each other while working on this project.
