Chapter 3 of the book Revenge is Sweet
Shannon meets Michael at the reunion.
"Don't Judge a Book by its Cover" by KatyM

Michael tried to get close to Shannon during the reunion. She knocked him down and kicked his butt on the dance floor when he was trying to dance with her. He called her a bitch. He was just in shock that she had such fast moves. Michael walked over to Shannon and said, "Shannon, can I please speak to you?"

Shannon was talking to Kyle after they sang their duet for the talent show at the reunion. Shannon turned around when she heard Michael speaking. "Michael, what do you want? I didn't appreciate you cutting into my dance with Kyle. I just reacted to being touched by putting you down on the floor."

"I get why you did it. I wanted to apologize for calling you a bitch. You just surprised me that is all. You have some amazing moves for a girl. You were never my type in high school. However, I would like to get to know you better if that is ok?" Shannon raised her eyebrow at Michael with a questioning look. "We can go for coffee if you are interested?"

"Kyle, I'm going with Michael for coffee so we can talk. Will you tell Kara. I will get a ride back to the house with Michael."

"Ok Shannon, will do."

Shannon and Michael left the reunion and went to his car. Michael opened the door of his Jaquar for Shannon and helped her into the car. Shannon got settled into the front seat and put her seat belt on. The coffee shop was only a couple miles away.
Michael got into the car and buckled up. He looked over at Shannon and said, "Thank you for being willing to go to have some coffee and talk."

"I feel like I need to apologize again for the way I acted on the dance floor. I had something happen to me when I was in high school. So since then, I made sure I knew how to protect myself." Shannon thought to herself, well that is partially true. He doesn't need to know what my real job is just yet.

"So, what kind of work do you do that, you have a Jaguar?"

"I have made some good investments and I also inherited some money. So I don't work but part-time."
Michael got out of the car and opened Shannon's door to help her out of the car. They went into the caf�?�©.
They got their coffee and sat down at a table in a quiet corner.
"Well, we have established that we are both sorry about what happened on the dance floor. Now, why did you want to talk to me, Michael? You said I wasn't your type in high school? What is your type?"

"Shannon, I think we should get to know each other better and see if maybe we are actually compatible. What do you think?"

"Well, first off I don't even live here. I live in Indiana. I am only here for the reunion. I go back tomorrow."

"I live in Indiana also! What are the odds? So since we live in the same state, do you suppose we can meet up and get to know each other better?"

"Michael, I think it's sweet that you want to get to know me better. However, I lead an active life when I am home. I don't have time for dating, I appreciate the apology for what happened in high school and on the dance floor, you can consider yourself forgiven."

"So Shannon, is this your way of letting me down easy by saying, that I am sweet?" Michael laughs and shakes his head.

"I don't think we have anything in common. You really are not my type at all. Who or What do you believe in? What kind of movies do you like? What is your favorite color? What kind of sports do you like to watch if any? Do you mind if a woman takes the lead when it comes to romance? I have a thousand questions that I need answers to. Do you have time to answer them all? "

"I can make time Shannon if you will give me a chance to get to know you better. There is a saying that I like, Opposites attract. I think this is the case when it comes to you and I. Let's head back to the reunion. I would like to dance with you."

Michael opened the car door again for Shannon and they left the coffeehouse.
When they walked into the gym, Michael reached over and touched her hand. She let him hold it. Michael held her close and this time around, Shannon didn't use any of her fancy moves on him. She let him hold her and she enjoyed the moment. Michael looked into Shannon's eyes and then whispered in her ear. "May I please give you, a kiss on the lips?"
Shannon whispered, "If you don't, I will kiss you."
Michael bent down and gave Shannon a kiss that made her left leg lift up off the ground. When he was finished, she looked up and swayed a little.
"Yowza, you are a really good kisser." They both had a smile on their face and started laughing.
Kyle and Kara were dancing also and danced over to where Michael and Shannon were dancing They switched partners during the dance.
Kara looked up to Michael, she said, "If you hurt Shannon in any way, I will hunt you down and you will be sorry."
Michael smiled and said, I understand Kara. I know she is your best friend. I'm not going to hurt her. We are going to start seeing each other when we get back home to Indiana."
Kara looked into his eyes and said, "Ok, so long as we are clear. I don't want her to get hurt. She has had enough things happen to her in her past."
"We are going to take it slow and steady and see what happens." The music stopped and Michael let go of Kara. They met up with Kyle and Shannon at their table. Shannon got a sip of her drink and took Michael's hand and pulled on him and pointed to the dance floor. They danced until they were nearly the only ones left in the gym.

"Guess, it's time to go home. Shannon looks around and notices that Kara and Kyle have gone. Will you take me back to Kara's house?"

"Yes, I would like that very much. Then we can plan when we will see each other again."
"I would like that. No, funny stuff though. You know I can kick your butt!" They both laughed.

Michael took Shannon to Kara's house. They sat in the car for a bit and exchanged phone numbers. They got out of the car and walked up to the door.

"Thank you for a wonderful night, Michael."

"I enjoyed it too Shannon. I look forward to seeing you when we get back home.
Michael reaches down and gives Shannon a long kiss goodnight. Until next time." Shannon goes inside smiling. She whispers, "Until next time."
