    Summary

    "Give a warm welcome to our newest babe, new to our stage but not to the trade. She comes all the way from the U-S of A and she is here tonight to warn you to stay away. Please welcome Skye."

    Jamie scrunched her face in confusion as all the lights on the stage turned off and “American Woman” by Lenny Kravitz started blaring through the speakers around the inside of the club.

    Suddenly the lights turned back on and Jamie’s attention was drawn to the back centre of the stage. A woman Jamie had never seen working at the club stood before everyone, her hands behind her back and her body completely still. She wore light brown cowgirl boots and Jamie watched as her left heel started to tap against the floor to the beginning beat of the song.

    Or-

    Jamie becomes lovestruck with the new dancer at the strip club she lives above.

    Summary

    With both hands Dani grips Jamie’s collar, pulls her in again slowly, until their noses touch. “Tell me to stop,” she says, quiet and pleading, “or I’m gonna do it again. Stop me.”

    “I can’t,” Jamie whispers.

    (Or: Jamie meets Dani while she's on a study-abroad year in London. Five years later, they find themselves on vacation together, along with Owen, Hannah, and Dani's long-term boyfriend, Eddie.)

    Summary

    The abandoned school bathroom had been left to rot over summer with no funding for a renovation, and no one had bothered to shut it off. Ergo, Jamie found herself hiding there from AP English that she certainly wasn’t in the mood for, when the bathroom door swung open.

     

    Dani never thought she'd be getting advice from Bly School's resident outsider, especially since she'd never even spoken to the girl. But Dani's desperate. Her perfect boyfriend and perfect planned out life isn't what she wants anymore, and she needs someone to help her realise exactly what she wants. Enter Jamie Taylor.
