Love, lies and mystery....now there's the ingredients for a good story!


Pannos' father notices that Pannos and Danielle are getting closer, and is enraged by the love affair unfolding before his eyes. He wants to put a stop to it!


Danielle was woken up by a hand gently stroking her arm. As she turned over she was greeted by Pannos’ gorgeous smile. No words were spoken as he welcomed her with his eyes when he kissed her. She closed her eyes and breathed in the memory of their conversation the night before. He held her tight and she felt so secure in his presence. He moved closer from behind her and his body fitted so perfectly into hers.  He kissed her shoulders and the now familiar feelings escaped through his lips. As he held her perfect body he was forced to use all his strength to control himself from making love to her. She turned to look at him and she could see the compulsive look in his eyes. It took all of her strength not to let him as she dared to kiss him. They got lost in each other and the world outside was soon forgotten. He pulled himself away and just stared into her eyes stroking her sexy curves. “I love you.” He mouthed and all of his power of restraint vanished. She went to say something but he put his finger on her mouth, stopping her from speaking. He just stared at her and smiled.
  “You are so perfect,” he said, watching his hand go up her tanned body. He did not want to leave her but he was aware of the time, he had work to do. Then the phone started ringing bringing them both back to reality. He leaned across her to answer it. He began to speak Greek and Danielle listened to the alien language, thinking how sexy his accent was. She began to kiss his bare chest and as he spoke his voice became quite agitated. Then he abruptly put the receiver down.
  “That was my brother, I am sorry but I have to leave you now and get to work.” His eyes filled with regret and he kissed her firmly on the lips. He reluctantly got out of the bed and got dressed. As he put on his clothes his eyes never left hers as she watched him cover up his masculine body.
  “I will see you in the bar soon, no?” He said still looking at her.
  “You will see me in the bar, yes.” Her voice was soft as she answered him. His beautiful Greek accent was enough for her to drag him back into bed, but she refrained. He kissed her again and her eyes followed him out of the door, eye contact lost when the door closed. Danielle laid there smiling trying desperately to work out what was happening to her. She soon chose to give up as she could not figure it out. She picked up her dress and put it on, the smell of Pannos present on the material. She took a deep breath breathing the memory of him in and glided back to her room. Her thoughts dominated by the lovely Pannos.
  Bill found himself walking along the beach and only a handful of people occupied the sun loungers. He walked past them oblivious to their presence. He knew he had no chance of being with the woman of his dreams but this did take the pain away that gripped hold of his heart. He suddenly came to a standstill and soon realised he was in the same spot where he had let go of his feelings to her. Various emotions swam around as he recalled those fateful words, tears welling up behind his eyes. He took a deep breath to keep them at bay. He sat on the warm sand and held his head in his hands. How could I have let this happen? He thought to himself. Why did I let myself get so close to her? Why had I let false hope rule my heart? She had told him she only wanted to be friends. He knew but secretly hoped she might change her mind. But now he knew the truth, last night had confirmed it. Instead she wanted that Greek bastard! Suddenly rage erupted as he envisioned them together and was convinced Pannos only wanted her for one thing. He was sure it would end in tears for Danielle. Well I am not going to be there for her to pick up the pieces, he thought. Those thoughts bred a surge of strength in him when he started to laugh uncontrollably. The realisation of the outcome of the situation was welcomed into his heart. Then he gathered his positive thoughts together and laughed away the tears.
  “You can have her Pannos,” he said out loud. Then he made himself a promise to never let another woman near his heart again.
  Danielle opened the door and walked into the unoccupied room.
  “Dan, is that you?” Mick shouted out from the bathroom.
  “Yes it is me. Where’s Bill?” Danielle replied flippantly. She walked over to the walkman and put the music on.
  “He was gone when I woke up. I thought he was with you.” Mick said walking out of the bathroom with only a towel around his waist. Danielle was lying on the bed with her eyes closed as Celine’s voice dominated the room. “Falling into you this dream could come true.” The words travelled through Danielle’s body as she remembered the night spent with Pannos. Then Mick noticed she still had the dress on she was wearing last night.
  “Did you have a good night Dan?” Danielle opened her eyes. She looked at Mick who had a big grin across her face.
  “Well I guess that look on your face answers my question.” Mick said smirking. He picked up his clothes and went back into the bathroom. Danielle’s thoughts went straight back to Pannos.
  Half an hour later Mick and Danielle made their way down to the bar. Mick was slightly concerned about Bill. He had no idea why he would go missing like this and just hoped he was all right. Suddenly Stuart popped up in his mind and he was taken back to when he went missing. He shook his head. No, Bill wouldn’t do anything like that to us, he thought quickly, forcing the thoughts out of his mind. As they entered the lounge Pannos was serving behind the bar. When his eyes fell on her, his face lit up with sheer happiness. Mick noticed his beaming expression and this brought a smile to his face. He felt so happy for them and had to admit they did look good together.
  “Good morning Pannos and how are you this fine morning, my friend?” Mick asked, looking straight at Pannos smirking.
  “Michael, I am feeling very happy thank you my friend.” Pannos replied, happily smiling back at Mick. Then he turned his attention to Danielle.
  “Good morning my beautiful Danielle and how are you my darling?” He took hold of her hand and kissed the back of it. Danielle’s heart fluttered and she gently squeezed his hand.
  “I am very happy thank you, ecstatically happy,” she replied staring into his brown eyes.
  “If I could just tear you two love birds apart for a few minutes, I would like a drink please, Pannos.” Mick ordered a beer and Danielle chose to have a cup of coffee. Pannos poured Mick’s beer and his eyes never left hers. No words were spoken but silent communication was obvious between them.  He had waited patiently for her to be in his reach and felt a sense of relief when she walked into the room. As soon as he had left her this morning his heart had ached for her. She was constantly in his thoughts and he could not wait to be with his beautiful Danielle again. He wanted to spend as much time with her as he could before she would be leaving his life as quickly as she had entered it. His heart sank when he thought about the day she would be going back to England. He took a deep breath and quickly put the dreaded thought to the back of his mind. When Danielle walked in all he felt was happiness and all of these untainted feelings for her escaped through his smile.
  “I would like for you to have lunch with me this afternoon,” he said placing her coffee down in front of her.
  “A good friend of mine has got a restaurant,” he continued, “and I would very much like him to meet you.” Pannos’ father was at the reception and the quietness of the room made it possible for him to hear his son’s conversation. He had never known his son to invite a girl to meet Nicos before. The look on Pannos’ face and the tone of his voice unnerved him. He did not like this English girl, something had to be said. Then Yannis walked up behind his father and noticed the harsh look on his face.
  “Yannis what is happening between Pannos and.... and that English girl?” He said his eyes still on the couple.
  “I do not like the look on your brother’s face. I hope he is not serious about her.” He turned around and looked at Yannis, his eyes boring into him like hot pokers.
  “Papa, they are just friends.” Yannis said, confused at his father’s aggression. He had never questioned his brother’s affairs before. “Danielle is ...” he began to explain but his father cut him dead.
  “I do not care what she is and I do not care what her name is. I will not allow her to get into my son’s heart!” His distinct words caused Yannis to take a step back, shocked by the tone in which they were spoken. Then the phone rang causing Pannos to look over. Yannis answered it and his father quickly left the room. Yannis lifted up the receiver indicating the call was for Pannos.

But Pannos' father has a secret of his own!!!!!
