Another scene from The Presidents Club, a spin off work-in-progress from my first novel, The Tourist Killer.
Enigmatic billionaire, Jay Thibaut [tee'-boe] is chatting with his long time secretary and personal assistant. The subject: her years long unrequited crush.
The Six Sentences

His eyebrows were darker than his medium brown hair. They framed his hazel eyes, that often twinkled with mischief, and almost met over the smooth lines of a nose never altered by his participation in sports.
He had a protective shield of dignity and reserve that discouraged personal questions.
Thibaut looked right into Miss Woods’ sparkling dark brown eyes and said, “2012 is a leap year -- don’t miss your chance.”
