Angel Fire Author:Andrew M. Greeley "Trying to make up your mind whether I'm real, Professor Desmond?" she asked lightly. "Or merely the result of the second vodka martini you had before lunch?" — Her accent was mostly Middle Western urban like his own, but not perfect. Occasionally there were intonations that were a bit off key. As though she'd learned this accent quickly. — "I won... more »'t talk any further unless you let me see you," he said stubbornly. Lights flickered and blinked in front of him, like an enormous and graceful multicolored CRT screen. "Dazzling and lovely," he said, with an edge to his voice, "but I can't talk to a terminal screen."
The patterns changed colors, whirled feverishly, and then seemed to condense into the shape of a woman, sitting calmly on the green and gilt chair at the other end of the window. Her smile was as amused as her voice. "You like my appearance?" she said, with just a touch of what in his species would be considered vanity.
Hell, yes. She was just the kind of woman that Sean Desmond admired the most.
