Sample text

The conversation looked quite animated, judging from the raised arms and dismayed expressions. Gigi teetered back on her high heels. ” She waved her arm and the head waiter was at her side. After a few words with him, waiters rushed to slide open pocket doors on a wall to reveal an intimate jewel of a room. All the guests at our table were moved to a table there.
