Six more sentences from ‘Changing the Future’. At the end of the first week, Lisa and Paul are forced to meet again when a group of staff go to an Italian restaurant for lunch. It seemed to Lisa that Paul was making deliberate, although veiled, references to their past life together. Back at college, she accosts him, and he accuses her of lying in her responses to his comments.
“You’re saying I lied?”
“You said you didn’t remember where we first met, but I don’t believe you’ve forgotten Luke’s party.”
Her cheeks grew hot because they’d shared their memories of that night so many times, but now attack was her best means of defence. “You were deliberately trying to embarrass me.”
“You probably won’t believe me but actually I said it without thinking.”
“And you also mentioned Ralph and Berlin without thinking, did you?”
Blurb: Lisa Marshall is stunned when celebrated volcanologist Paul Hamilton comes back into her life at the college where she now teaches. Despite their acrimonious break-up several years earlier, they soon realise the magnetic attraction between them is stronger than ever. However, the past is still part of the present, not least when Paul discovers Lisa has a young son. They can’t change that past, but will it take a volcanic eruption to help them change the future?
