"I'm sorry." Charlie felt like a broken record, saying the same thing to dozens of students all day. "I wish I could take all of you, but I'm going to have to keep enrollment to the stated maximum."

The young man before him let out a deep sigh. "I really wanted to take that class."

Charlie patted him on the back. "I know. But it will be available next semester." With a nod, Charlie ushered him to his office door. "Good luck."

"Thanks, Professor."

He'd barely stepped away when there was a tentative tap at the door.

"Professor Eppes?"

Charlie turned to find a stunning young woman with long dark wavy hair, creamy caramel skin and a bright, if shy, smile.

"Yes?" he managed, clearing his throat.

"I heard there was a problem with one of my planned classes? The instructor had a heart attack or something?"

"Dr. Lister," Charlie explained. "And instead of sending his students a notice the registration system goofed up and added everyone on the waitlist. I'm covering his combinatorics class so now I have the pleasure of kicking most of them back out again," he said ruefully.

"Oh." The smile faded. "It's just... Combinatorics is my field of specialty. I really need this course if I'm going to stay on schedule to get my Ph.D in five years."

"Ambitious!" Charlie gazed at her again, impressed doubly: beautiful and brilliant. "Well, I'm sure I can find an opening for you."

The smile came back full force. "Thank you so much!"

They crossed to his desk and he pulled out his roster.

"And your name would be?"

"Amita," she told him, holding out her hand for him to shake. Her skin was warm and soft to his touch and she smelled wonderful, rich and spicy. "Amita Ramanujan."
