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 references to their past life together. Back at college, she accosts him, and asks him whether he'd made a deliberate point of mentioning her ex-boss, Ralph Glover.
“I’ve always told the truth about Ralph, but you refused to believe me.”
“But you still see him?”
“Why shouldn’t I?”

Somehow he’d wrong-footed her and she didn’t know how to respond.
Blurb: Lisa Marshall is stunned when celebrated volcanologist Paul Hamilton comes back into her life at the college where she now teaches.

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?
