All That It Seems: Shae and Trenton's first scene

Currently in the process of editing All That It Seems, so I will post excerpts and more about the characters.

Her life, now that was a joke.

It was after six in the evening and Shae was still hard at work.

“I thought you were gone already?”

She recognized the voice, but she looked up anyway. Trenton Anderson stood at the doorway. He always seemed to find himself at Shae’s door. He constantly flirted with her and asked her out to lunch and she always refused. Not that he was unattractive, because he was incredibly handsome.

He was a rather striking man. Other women in the office always gave him extra long stares and whispers as he walked by. He was not notably tall, at about five foot eight, he stood two inches taller than Shae. His body was lean, though incredibly solid. His walnut brown skin was baby smooth, except for a small mustache, which gave him a boyish look. He appeared a lot younger than his thirty-two years.
His bank account was what women were most interested in. He worked in the Financial Business Planners Division and he dealt with the heavy hitters. With his perks, bonuses and salary, he was well over the three hundred grand mark, and everybody knew it. It was all in the way he dressed, the cars he drove, the trips around the world he took. The man was living large.

Shae knew he was a world-class jerk. He could have any woman he wanted. He walked around so cocky, as if he ruled the world. Hot damn, that turned her on! A man that made his money and was not afraid to show it off. Though he was nothing but nice to her, she knew there was more to his story.

“Hello, Mr. Anderson.” Shae wanted to piss him off so that he would leave her alone, but she knew the man was unwavering.

“Oh, so it’s like that, Ms. Morris."

“Making your rounds to all the ladies tonight, Mr. Anderson?”

“Only the sassy ones, Ms. Morris.”

Shae rolled her eyes and held back a smile. They could play the name game all night, but she was not up for it.

“I still have a lot of work to do. It’s only six fifteen. I’m here for at least another hour or so. And you?”

“Wrapping up. I thought I’d swing by and see if you were on for a drink later.”

“You never give up, do you, Mr. Anderson?”

“Oh, stop it Shae, it’s just a drink.”

“Sorry, I’ll pass.”

“One day, girl, one day.”

Shae shook her head.  No buddy, not anytime too soon.
