A Seductive Encounter.

Extracts from this document...


A Seductive Encounter By Stephanie Drew This passage occurs in the middle of the novel. Sophie fell headfirst onto the busy street. Out of the corner of her eye she could see Michael running towards her. As he drew nearer, she noticed his athletic body, and his dark, windswept hair. He was the type of man Sophie had continuously dreamed about. "It's all right," he whispered softly into her ear, as he helped her up. "You're OK." He sat her carefully down on a nearby bench and stared into her eyes. She met his gaze and she could feel his powerful blue eyes melting her insides, like ice cream on a blazing summer's day.

A polite cough snapped her back to the reality of the dreary office. She saw a striking, dark haired man. The receptionist seemed to be having difficulty concentrating. "Dad?" she said, startled, "What are you doing here?" What was going on? Where was her beloved Michael? Why wasn't he here now?
