The most Clarke expects out of her Tuesday evening is szechuan beef noodles in her favorite Chinese place down the street and the feeling of perfect calm.

What she gets instead is a hot, flustered guy with freckles covering the most of his tan skin, rumpled shirt and the general appearance of someone who’s been running.
