It’s break time at Friday Night speed dating in Alfredton. The restroom fills quickly as girls file in en masse.
They proceed to discuss all their eligible and not so eligible choices, but all too soon the short break is over and the painful small talk resumes with Bachelor Number 7, the guy they have all been drooling over.
Rini reeled, but then quickly composed herself. She hadn’t looked at it from his perspective. He’d probably thought that this sexting thing was the way early dating was done these days. It had been an easy enough mistake to make.

There it was. That sensation of utter excitement mixed with terror at the thought of it not being requited. Sheer, pure, unadulterated lust had gripped her in its clutches. She cleared her throat but couldn’t speak. Stephen raised his glass.
Meanwhile, at another table …

Sadly, the night is coming to an end, and Stephen asks the question he’s been dying to ask for hours.
He reached across the table for her hand. She shrunk back as if stung by a bee, but not before a huge bolt of electricity had charged through from his hand to hers. She sat back startled, wide eyed, and stammered a response.
He looked utterly devastated for a moment.
There was a slight tremor in his deep baritone.
A big, wide smile adorned his face again.
