"I've got a crisp new Benjamin for the first person who can give me a good synonym for thrust, noun form. Go." she said, her voice both honeyed and sardonic.
Although irritated by her cavalier attitude and her unfortunate attractiveness, Zach couldn't help but scroll though his substantial mental thesaurus.

She set her keyboard aside and turned to face him for the first time. "I do love a man with a big vocabulary."

What's your tease???
