In an alternate universe, perhaps Alex and Katherine meet cute. Perhaps it is Alex who stumbles headlong into Katherine, knocking her belongings all over the sidewalk. They both stoop to pick up the dropped things and smack heads. They both fall back on their rumps, rubbing their heads, and when they finally look up at each other, they notice the attractiveness of the other person. Perhaps, one or both of them will blush furiously, stammering all the while. Perhaps, their hands will brush once, twice, three times before one of them suggests coffee. Perhaps this isn’t in an alternate universe.
