Angle: The space between two lines or surfaces at the point at which they touch each other, measured in degrees.
Week one – his best side. The angle – 100 degrees of pure lust. The point – trying to find ‘the one.’
Week two – both of us on the same side. Angle – 70 degrees of lust tempered with 30 degrees of laughter and chat. The point – discovering if we have a future beyond sex.
Week three – my worst side. The angle – 100 degrees of anger and distrust. The point – love triangles, fire torches and me, are a very dangerous mix.
