Chapter Two Excerpt

I’m looking for Matthew Cunningham. Have you seen him?” she said.

Nick found himself staring into the face of the red headed stranger. It was dark and the lighting was very inconsistent due to the flickering strobe lights, but even then he could tell she was strikingly beautiful. Nick let his eyes drop quickly to the floor and rise back up, doing a double take on every feature of this mysterious girl. He tried his best not to stare, fearing it would make her uncomfortable, but he couldn’t help it. She was a complete knock-out.

”Excuse me?” Nick had never felt more dumbstruck in his entire life.
