The Wedding Gift
Rose Hutchinson has always been a good kid, did her home work, never back chatted and did well in school. These traits continued into her teenage years and into early adult hood. She went to college and began training to become a veterinary nurse , spending her evenings and weekend helping her parents run the family business. Unknown to her , her family began to get into debt once the recession hit and her family decided to sell the business but found no buyer as they continued to keep they business above water as much as possible.
Six months into the course her family reveal the truth and she drops out of college to work for them and to get a secondary job to help bring the money in. At first she takes normal jobs such as waitresses, secretaries etc but the family business keeps sinking and one night she is offered more than double her normal wages to sing a "Happy Birthday" song to a well known and rich business man recently divorced. She completes the job but the man takes more of a interest into her which she refuses due to him being a business contact.
The man stung by her refusal begins to research into her families activities and finds out about the current poor state the family business is in. So he decides to try and buy Rose as a gift to himself.
(Though stated during the post he/him etc this could be just as easily done by a female character also.))
The Camping Holiday
Selena decides to spent her summer holidays after a hard year of college cross country camping. The trip starts off well but starts to lose the glamor when she has to continually queue to simply go to the bathroom. At her next camping destination she decides to hire a static caravan and goes to the local village pub to let her hair down. On her way there she meets a hitch hiker...
This one can go many ways. I am certainly open to discussion on it depending on the other persons interests and o/os.
The Trouble with Ex's[/b]
A idea born from the film Bounty Hunter starring Jennifer Aniston. A whirl wind romance couple got a divorce three years ago and have not spoke or seen each other since. In the three years a lot has happened to them in the single network and career wise. He has become a bounty hunter and she owning her own store. One day she is witness to a murder but the criminal set her up. She goes on the run to prove her innocence and the bounty is set which her ex husband gleefully accepts...
This would fall into I would say light human perhaps even romance and certainly good humour.

At the same time Tessa has started to have strange dreams of running wild and she has vague recollections of the reporters and injuries inflicted that appear in the news. She puts it down to the fact that the story has simply got under her skin until one day the panther gets wounded. When Tessa wakes up at home she finds the same wound on her as was on the panther.

In this story I see Tessa being just turned twenty one and as with her family on that birthday they develop a gift her's is to shape change but Tessa was adopted so her family are unaware of this.
