Let's see...Cassie is bored with her life and has made a connection on a dating site. She's already given her phone number and had a conversation with Evan who lives in Texas. Now she's back at work in her real life...not just a dreamworld.
Cassie sat at her office desk and stifled a yawn. She wasn’t used to being up as late as she had been last night. Her thoughts turned to Evan, and she checked her watch wishing time would pass quickly so she could go home and spend time on the phone with him again. Just remembering his deep, southern-drawl caused her heart to skip a beat.
The memory of his descriptive language warmed her. She nipped at her bottom lip. She didn’t even know the man, yet he sounded genuine and sincere. What kind of man would put his own life aside to take care of someone? He must be a rare bird. Gregory had barely wanted to see his mother, let alone live with her, and Cassie’s brother, Frank, rarely came to visit their Mom. Cass pulled a mental picture of Evan into her mind and wondered what it would be like to meet in person.
The buzz of the intercom on her desk interrupted her thoughts.
“Yes?” She clenched her teeth at the disturbance.
“Mr. Takeda would like to see you in his office,” the voice on the other end responded.
“Thank you.” Cassie’s hands shook as she pushed back from her desk and prepared to face her boss. What could he possibly want from her? Or worse, what had she done to piss him off now?
She squared her shoulders, bravely left her office, and walked down the long, carpeted hallway.
Outside his intimidating mahogany door, Cassie stopped, took a deep breath, and rapped her knuckles against the shiny wood.
“Come in,” Takeda’s authoritative voice boomed.
Cassie’s insides trembled like a mass of Jell-O, but she put on her most professional and fearless face. “You wanted to see me?”
