Chemistry - Coming Together's Hors d'Oeuvres are single story treats taken from the anthologies and sold as appetizers. Finger food, if you will, for the libido.
Lisabet Sarai's "Chemistry" comes from Coming Together: With Pride which benefits AVERT.
Kit is a workaholic, a brilliant pharmacological chemist who is driven to succeed. She wants a life that is controlled, disciplined, and predictable. When she meets Frank, her hairy ex-hippie neighbor, she's inexplicably and irresistibly attracted to him, though he represents everything that she despises. She tries to fight her own desire, but discovers that sometimes, chemistry trumps rationality. (M/F, contemporary)
