“Chase? Oh, excuse me.” A beautiful brunette stands at the office door. She makes jeans and a tank top look like lingerie. I can only describe her as stunning, yet it’s a gentle, completely feminine beauty. She glows when she looks at Chase. “Am I interrupting?"
Chase Tanner crosses the room and gently pulls the woman against his side. He glances back at me. “About your last question…what am I most proud of? I’m holding the answer. This is Kali.”
I can’t help it. I blush. His voice resonates with such certainty and passion. The woman blushes too. Although Chase Tanner has done nothing but put his arm around Kali, I feel like a voyeur. The undercurrents between them vibrate in the air. It’s like watching foreplay. I have to swallow so my voice doesn’t crack.
Me: “If you have time, Mr. Tanner, there are just a few more questions.”
Chase: “Please continue, Ms. Brown.”
Me: “Okay. What do you value most in your life?”
Chase: “It’s still the same answer.” He tucks Kali closer.
Me: “Yes. I should have guessed that.”
The beauty leans up, kisses Chase’s jaw, and then whispers, “Thank you, sir.”
Kali: “Chase doesn’t talk much about himself.” She turns to me with a warm smile. “Are you trying to interview him?
Me: “Yes. Attempting to.”
Kali: “What are some of the questions? Maybe I can help.”
Me: “Thank you. Who is Chase’s best friend?”
Kali: “Oh, that’s easy. Nick Colton, his business partner. Chase and Nick are starting a new line this spring called Stone Wear.”
Me: “That sounds interesting. Is Nick Colton here? Perhaps I should interview him?”
Kali: “Well, you could try.” Her eyes sparkle. “But he doesn’t talk much either.”
Me: “Thank you.” I put my notes away and stand, then shake hands with Kali and Chase. “This is the best non-interview I’ve ever had.”
Chase: “Is there anything else I can do for you?”
Me: “Tell me how to get to Nick Colton’s office. It can’t hurt to stop in.”
Chase: “Just ask my assistant in the reception area. She’ll show you the way.”
Me: “You know…” I pause at the office door. “I do have one more question. What is the secret to your success, Mr. Tanner?”
Chase: “Find and follow your passion.” He looks at Kali. “And don’t give up.”
