Passengers crowded the incoming and departure gates at the airport terminal in Oklahoma. Lori inched her way over near the wall. She rose on tip-toes trying to spot her father. She soon saw him standing across the room talking to a man. When the stranger turned and she got a better look, she felt a rush of blood singing through her over her discovery.
She was looking at the man she'd seen at the party last month in her hometown and believed she would never see again. Maybe she was imagining things, but after taking another look, she realized it was the stranger. For the longest time, she stood staring across the room trying to find the courage to walk over to them. Lori silently hoped that the enticing looking man didn’t remember her from Brad’s party that night a few weeks ago.
She slowly started across the room, each step bringing her closer to her dream man. The closer she got, the more nervous she became. She told herself countless times to calm down, but she wasn’t having any luck in keeping her heart from beating at an accelerated rate.
When she made it through the crowd, she saw her father glance at her and a welcoming smile lined his face. The man with him glanced at her and his eyes narrowed. He gave her a look that said, I've seen you somewhere before, but I can't figure out where.
Eventually, she stood next to her father. She didn't know if this man was Zack Ryder, her new boss, or an acquaintance of her father, so she patiently waited to find out.
"Zack, I want you to meet your new secretary Lori Benning,” Rick introduced them, reaching for her arm and pulling her forward. "Lori's from Texas and decided to make Oklahoma her new home."
"Ms Benning, it's good to meet you." Zack Ryder extended his hand and engulfed her small one in a warm handshake. She felt her stomach knot listening to the oozing sound of his sensual voice. This was the first time she'd ever heard him speak because a room had separated them at the party. The sound sent a tingling sensation racing down her spine and she looked forward to hearing it again.
His blue eyes narrowed again as he studied her features more closely. She crossed her fingers hoping that he didn't connect her to the party in Texas. For the longest time, he continued staring at her, with the same puzzled expression lining his features. With a slight shrug, it looked as if he was giving up trying to remember where he'd seen her before.
