Shari had noticed several times that Josh Milton was eyeing her and sizing her up and she didn’t like it one bit.  There was something off about Josh that she couldn’t quite put a finger on.  His charming personality was overwhelming to her like the stench of rotting garbage and her intuition was solidified when he finally had the nerve to approach her and ask her out on a date.  Shari looked into his eyes and saw a darkness there that bordered on sinister.
