Dan glimpses Shafilia for the first time. (You'd think he'd never seen a girl before!)

Her eyes are a mega-tastic deep brown and almond-shaped set in an angel-babe face that's smiling at me. At me! And her hair is black and shiny…and…and she's awesome!

My neck must have melted because my chin hits my chest and I'm looking down at my seal-flipper feet. What chance have I got with someone like her? I look up ready to give her a smile that will probably send her away screaming but she's gone.
