What a bloke! I'd give my back teeth to charm the birds like he does!
Genre
romance
Characters
Guy Prentis; Jason; Cara Walsh
Synopsis
Jason can chat up women, so he lines up a girl for his shy mate Guy. When that match ends quickly, Guy lies to Jason about a follow up date. So, with nothing to do Saturday, Guy goes to the library. There he literally runs into Cara. She's as nervous as Guy, but they're comfortable together. When Jason turns up, he takes over. Guy gives up and sneaks away. Cara follows him, admitting she was fascinated with Jason—because of the way he can chat up a girl, but not really talk to a girl as Guy does.
