Executive Meeting-43

Kent:”Zola Welton in the flesh.”                                                                                                         Zola:”It surely is.”

Executive Meeting-44

Zola:”Good to see you on this side of the world Kent.”

Executive Meeting-45

Kent:”I’m really happy to see you Zola.”                                                                                     Zola:”Kent, ahhmm, so how did Sophie get you to join us?”

With slight trepidation Zola greets Kent and the moment their hands meet a warmth comes over her.

Executive Meeting-46

Kent:”Well I was kinda tired of New York and thought a change of scenery in a small island would be a good change.”                                                                                                                             Zola:”Interesting, ahh … can I get back my hand?”

Executive Meeting-48

Zola thinking: Whoa! I feel a bit dizzy.

Being swept into his deep blue eyes Zola half listens to Kent, while the warm feeling spreads over her body.

Executive Meeting-50

Sophie thinking: What’s wrong with her?

Then suddenly she trips…

Executive Meeting-51

Kent:”Steady there Zola.”                                                                                                                 Zola:”I’m ok, my heel just got caught in the rug.”

Executive Meeting-52

Kent:”Are you sure you are ok? You look like you’re trembling.”

She lies through her teeth, knowing full well that it was her knees that buckled.

Executive Meeting-53

Zola:”NO I AM NOT! I’m fine. Please sit.”

Executive Meeting-54

Kent:”Time is of the essence so I will get straight to it.”

Usually in control, Zola straightens her posture and tries to recapture her dignity and snaps at Kent when he only wants to help. Picking up on the tension Kent promptly takes a seat.

Executive Meeting-55

Kent:”I just secured the M-12 girls a photo shoot Thursday morning in Paris with Jean Lucas.” Sophie:”Ohh Paris!”

Executive Meeting-56

Ashley thinking: Kent looks good enough to eat!                                                                           Zola:”Ah Jean Lucas. Impressive. You will have to leave in the morning.”

Executive Meeting-61

Sophie:”Don’t forget incidentals.”

Executive Meeting-63-revised

Emma over the intercom:”How can I help you Ms. Welton?”                                              Zola:”Emma please book six tickets to Paris on the first flight tomorrow.”

Zola then buzzes Emma at the front desk.

Executive Meeting-64

Emma over the intercom:”Is there anything else?”                                                                      Zola:”No that’s it. Thanks.”

Sophie:”Kent and I will go round up the girls and I’ll pass back later for the documents.”

Sophie:”Are you ok? You looked a bit rattled there.

Call you later.”                         Zola:”Yes call me later.”
