James and I have discussed the idea of a fencing scene--a sexy, spirited duel between Gabriel and Chloe. For those who are unaware, fencing is a very sexy sport. At least I think so.
All that parrying and thrusting always puts me in the mood, as James can tell you.
Fencing suits Chloe. It suits her bold, aggressive side. It's a way for her to deal with her pent-up anger and frustration--most of which has been connected to the father who abandoned her when she was seven. Up until now. Since Gabriel came into her life, jealousy has also been an occasional visitor. Still unsure of his love for her, she tends to react--make that overreact--when other women are around.
As you'll see, that can prove dangerous.
It also enables Chloe to deal with Manhattan's criminal element. In one scene, when her purse is snatched, she effectively uses her umbrella as she would a fencing foil to disable her adversaries and reclaim her property.
Now, if I can convince James to join me in a nude duel...
