Lisa/Political Asylum (Storycuts)



Two short stories: Lisa is a shy, bookish girl - with a secret; and a handsome neighbour comes to Virginia's rescue, in more ways than one.

In 'Lisa', Paul Buchanan is used to women falling at his feet. So when he meets dowdy little Lisa Aitken at his publisher's office, he is surprised when she appears immune to his charms. Piqued, he tries again. And again. And again, until she finally relents and lets him take her out. Pretty soon, there's something about the mysterious Lisa that has Paul hooked. But why is she so cagey about where she goes every weekend? What is the secret that Lisa is hiding so desperately?

In 'Political Asylum', Virginia has landed on her feet with her first flat in London: a fabulous pad near the House of Commons, with her best friend Jenny, and with the handsomest man in the Cabinet, Anthony Hudson, as their neighbour. The only fly in the ointment is Virginia's boyfriend William, whose affections towards her seem to be cooling somewhat. Things get a little more interesting when Virginia finds herself locked out of her flat in the pouring rain - and who should come to her rescue but Anthony...

Part of the Storycuts series, these two short stories were precviously published in the collection Lisa & Co.
