Chapter 5:

For the next few days, Sharon got herself adjusted to working at Forrester Creations. She had a nice, spacious office as well as a flexable schedule so that she could be at home with Faith every night.

While she was getting adjusted at work, she would occasionally find herself thinking about Thorne. She hadn't seen him since they had met in his father's office. She wondered what he was doing.

Meanwhile, Thorne was thinking about Sharon & wondering to himself how he could find a way to see if he could work with her. Every idea he came up with seemed stupid to him.

Then it came to him. Thorne knew exactly what to do.

He went right over to his father's office to make a suggestion to him.

As soon as he was inside, Thorne asked, "Dad, do you know about the upcoming ad campaign involving Taboo?" Eric nodded.

"Well, I have an idea," said Throne. Eric, who was now very interested, nodded again.

"I was wondering if Sharon Newman & I could work together on it," said Thorne. Eric was now intrigued.

"Is there more to it then that, son?" asked Eric. "What do you mean, Dad?" asked Thorne. "I mean, are you looking for an excuse to be around Sharon?" asked Eric with a bit of a smile. Thorne just chuckled.

"I guess you could say that. Yeah," said Thorne. "You like her, don't you?" asked Eric. "I do. Very much. I think she & I would make a great team," said Thorne. "You know something, son? So do I. I'll ask her if she would like to do that," said Eric who now had a big smile on his face. "Thanks, Dad. That means a lot to me," said Thorne with a smile of his own. He then left.

As he made his way to his office, Thorne just barely avoided running into his brother Ridge, who looked very upset. That got him curious.

However, when he saw his brother head towards Sharon's office, Thorne got worried. He knew that his borther had a really nasty temper. So he decided to follow Ridge.

He just hoped nothing bad was going to happen to her.
