The New Man in my life

Last night I asked my Facebook friends to help me create a character.  I couldn't see him clearly.  Just felt the impact of his fist as he hit the plaster behind a woman's head.  I could hear see him rest his head on the wall and whisper, so only she could hear, "do you love me?.  That's it.  Nothing else. 

Today, I know him much better.

Meet Dakheel Hason Katton. 32 years old,  he is the son of an Algerian textile merchant.  They create high quality linen sold throughout the world.  His mother is European.  Sadly, she died when he was only 6 years old.  He was raised in London,by his maternal grandparents, but spent his summers with his Father.  His name means beautiful foreigner.   He loves the desert and the culture of his father, but also appreciates the hustle and bustle of London.  He has been educated in the US, UK and Saudi Arabia.  He speaks English, Arabic, Spanish and French.  He can read Latin and hold a decent conversation in Japanese.   He has a pretty good relationship with his siblings.  Thanks, in part to his father' wife.  She has never held the circumstances of his birth against him.  Always treated him as one of her own.  He has it all, but does not have a place that he call home.  But all of that is about to change.

Dak is the Bahamas to survey  a potential site for his family's business.  He becomes involved with, Elisa Royale, a woman who ignites protective instincts he didn't know he had.  She has become his obsession.  Unfortunately, she has a secret that is going to test this very new, very volatile relationship.  Will their relationship survive the revelations?

I haven't decided yet :)
