3) FEATURE

Here @ SD Features, we are premiering a new online saga: LOVE
BYTES. For those of you who enjoyed THE MISADVENTURES OF A SBF,
we have all nine episodes online for your perusal @ SD Features.

NOW - What is Love Bytes, you ask. Here's the skinny: Meet
Destiny, a twenty something love columnist - who knows absolutely
nothing about love. Her last boyfriend, well he was actually
the fiancƩ, broke up with Destiny while in the middle of planning
their wedding, and since then, Destiny has been battling depression.
Meet Devon, the sports editor at the paper Destiny works at. He has
been hot on Destiny's trail since the first time they met, but she's
always rebuffed his advances. Mainly because she knows he's a playa
and likes "conquering women" as she hears around the water cooler.
Destiny's tough veneer melts when she meets a guy online who seems
to make her think - on all levels, including sexually. When Destiny
starts to also feel something for Devon, will she have to choose
between what's real and what's cyberreality?


In Episode One, we met Destiny and caught a glimpse into her life
as a love columnist, her want of a new love, and the issues that
keep her from getting that new love. You can check out Episode
One here!


In EPISODE TWO, Destiny and her cousin Sharay head out to a club
to see some strippers...and for Destiny to meet her cyber man,
but what she gets in return is beyond her imagination!


::Excerpt::
Destiny and Sharay danced for about 15 minutes, both doing their
own thang and jiving with the music being played. As Destiny
pivoted on the floor, she knocked into somebody and began to
tumble to the floor. She felt large hands firmly catch her around
her back and her ass, holding her towards him. She didn't even
notice the hand on her ass as she began to speak, "I am so sorry,
I didn't see..." She stopped in mid sentence. Destiny had looked
up at who caught her and out of all the people in the world, WHY
would it be Devon ?

He just smiled down at her, his hand still firmly holding Destiny's
rump.

"What are you doing here?" they asked in unison.

"What are you doing here?" Destiny repeated. Devon leaned in close,
his lips next to Destiny's ear, causing her to shiver.

"I'm looking for someone," he responded.

"Who?" Destiny asked. "I didn't know you came out to D.C."

"Every once in a while," Devon said. "What are you doing here?"

"Sharay and I are here...girls night out." Destiny peeped around
Devon, looking to make sure Sharay was near and to check for the
mystery man again.

"You looking for someone?" Devon asked, a smile on his face.
Before Destiny spoke, she closed her eyes for a moment and
realized WHOSE arms she was in and WHERE one of them hands was.
