Daeshim Runs into Min

Daeshim was at a business function which required formal wear. It felt strange being dressed like that during the day instead of in the evening. And it was too bad that it was during the week because he couldn't take Sade. He told her about it last night when they were lying in his bed …

After kissing and saying goodbye to Avianna, Dr. Klein let himself out of the house and went down the short flight of steps to where his car was parked. It was about five minutes after seven in the evening. He was on his way to pick Jabulani up from Heathrow. Excitement filled him. It had …
