STORE WARS Launch day!



HAPPY LAUNCH DAY!!



The competition heats up when Janie's old flame
 returns to town and is running the family business.

"So what else turns you off?"   

 In one corner, imitation leather purses embellished with rhinestone crowns had been stacked on a glass and chrome shelving unit. Cheap, gemstone bracelets decorated a nearby display stand. I pointed to a shirt rack and said in a soft voice, "I'd never wear these clothes."       

With a frown, Tracy cupped her mouth. "Me, neither. They're aimed for the nighttime crowd—if you catch my drift."   

"I do. Yuck." Taking in the whole enchilada, I stopped when I spied the jean-clad backside of a male employee sweeping the floor. God, I hope he hadn't heard us.
         
I steered Tracy aside and whispered, "We'll have no problems with our store succeeding in the Depot District. We're better than the ones at the mall and all the other stores around here."          
         
"I agree. Let's split up, take mental notes, and meet out front in fifteen minutes."         


I peeled off to the left, and she went to the right. The man cleaning glanced over his shoulder and straightened. "May I help you?"        

Instantly, my body froze like an icicle. It couldn't be—could it? Fletcher? As in my once upon a time boyfriend, Fletcher Babcock? When had he abandoned the bright lights of Big D and returned to Sommerville?
