Thursday's 3 Word Wednesday

The word prompts over at 3WW are deny, smile and uncomfortable. These words call out for a Fiction in 58 (OK, yeah, and my brainpan is pretty full). Oh, and yes, I do have a new ditty up over at Six Sentences. Check it out.

Coffee Shop Smile
Her smile, dimples with a little toothy overbite, was hard to deny. He stared, and when she caught him, she’d smile just a little more over her oversized cup of chai.
Of course, he’d turn red and shift deeper into the paperback he held with one hand.
Her smile made him uncomfortable; or was it his debilitating shyness?

His shyness. Which it's sad, cuz girls usually find shyness cute. :) (Though admittedly only to a point.)
