Chapter One

Dorothy Love Memorial Building Annual Tenant Meet & Greet

“I don’t believe you’ve had the pleasure. My name is Candice,” Candice offered her hand to the six foot plus cocoa brown man she stepped in front of. “My friends call me Candi.”

“I’m sure I’d remember if I had,” he took her hand and caressed the top before releasing it. “I’m Rajj, and so far it is a pleasure Ms. Candice.” He took in the scent of vanilla pear and peered down the petite woman’s low cut blouse that matched her striped mini skirt.

“I’m hoping we’ll become quick friends. So please call me Candi,” she flashed a thousand watt smile. “So, Rog, is that short for Roger or like the old show What’s Happening Now?” She looked up at him through her lashes with a seductive smile.

“Like the show,” he licked his lips and spoke to her cleavage. “Mine is spelled with an A and two J’s.”

“Interesting, I never had -- I mean heard it like that before in real life. Originality is very sensual to me,” Candice said. “I don’t see a lot of it as a call center manager. I work on the sixth floor at Baal Research Technologies. Where do you work?” she shifted her weight from her left to her right foot. This caused his gaze to shift to her short but shapely legs.
