Laura always chose the dare instead of giving up information about herself.  That’s how she’d gotten into this mess in the first place.  Somehow she found the nerve to get on stage and participate in a pole competition.  Nerves almost got the best of her when Laura looked out into the crowd and into the blue eyes of the man she still wanted.   

Instead of dancing for Mark, Laura is forced to dance with him.  Laura finds it hard to mask the feelings she has for Mark and she’s confused by the signals she’s getting from him.  How could Mark respond to her with such passion while his wife was standing by watching?  He was married now, so that meant Mark was off limits.  Wasn’t he? 

Laura and Mark hadn’t seen each other in years until fate brings them together, much like it had in the past.  Things are hot and heavy between the two of them from the moment they meet in the club.  Mark challenges Laura to the ultimate game of Truth Or Dare and Laura finally tells the truth.  Up until this point in the story, I had no idea what was going on in Mark’s head.  I knew he’d gotten married, but honestly I didn’t care at all.  With the kind of history he and Laura had, there was no way they weren’t meant to have a future together.  It would have been a shame to see their bond broken because of a misunderstanding.  Readers will appreciate this short story because it’s a wonderful reminder of what can happen when we let down our shields and take a chance.
