8:00p.m. the Eastern Star Restaurant
Jerome stands outside the restaurant, rubbing his hands together for warmth in the snow. He’s full of nerves. He hopes with all his heart that Ava won’t be mad with him for his cold treatment a few hours ago, and that she understands why he didn’t want his cover blown. Maybe she’ll even see the funny side of it. He eyes a black London taxi across the road pull up. Ava steps out and astounds him. She looks amazing. Jerome takes her in from head to toe wearing black knee high winter boots with a stiletto heel, she’s wrapped up in a black trench coat. Her belt is pulled tightly emphasising her narrow waist and curvy hips, she sports a large green scarf and leather gloves. Instantly he feels his groin wake up. He has an urge to undress her and make passionate love to her immediately. She crosses the busy road, and does a double take as she notices him standing outside the Eastern Star.
When she’s not reading or writing novels of her own, her other passions include practising her French, fashion and spending time at her sewing machine dress making, watching make –up and beauty tutorials on YouTube, letter writing and being a mum.
