Large, pale-green eyes were startling in a face with a full mouth and a dark tan. She wore shorts and a sleeveless cotton shirt which buttoned up the front, the garments revealing long legs and some very interesting

I wasn’t sure whether I was relieved or disappointed. Maybe a little of both. Figuring my excitement for the day was at an end, I picked up the six-inch square cube and walked back to Zack’s office.
