I swiveled around from my computer and grabbed for the last of my mocha chocolate. I swallowed the last cold dregs and looked over to the other side of the room. My assistant pilot Charlie Adams was seated in front of her telecommunication computer, typing. She felt my gaze on her. She turned around and yawned."Busy day?" she asked, her bright, clear eyes smiling."Not really" I replied rubbing my hands into my hair."Well, I've has such an awesome day!" she teases, tossing back her red plait.She was a beautiful woman but, I was just not into any relationships at this moment, judging by the death of my recent ...view middle of the document...
