Jess is having her Golden Moment - she's successful, attractive and confident. When the drop-dead gorgeous Adam walks in to her cafe, it's love at first sight, but her friend Trina has been reading The Rules and warns her to play it cool. Will her ice queen act create the air of mystique and intrigue she's hoping for, or drive him away? In this short story, Maggie Alderson explores the rituals - and pitfalls - of modern dating.
