874 words - 3 pages

IFrom the time she was old enough to know what a lawyer was, Allison knew she wanted to be one. She wanted not to help guilty criminals get dismissed, but to help the innocent victims of senseless crimes receive the justice they deserved. Her desire to help people stemmed from her upbringing in a loving, religious home, with two parents who encouraged her to chase her dreams, whatever they may be.

Could this be the man she'd seen in her dreams who'd sweep her off her feet and change her forever?

Somehow she muttered a response to his question, and ironically, he had just begun reading the same book.
