Fifty Shades of Grey
By Shelley Marie Roz
Anastasia Steele is a 21-year old, English Literature senior in WSU with only a few weeks left before graduation. In the middle of completing prerequisites, her best friend Kate drafts her to interview one of the school sponsors - Christian Grey. He is the CEO and owner of Grey Enterprises Holdings, Inc. He is 27 years old, good-looking, domineering and distant.
Desire ignites upon their first meeting. Ana aspires him to be her boyfriend. Christian on the other hand wants her to be with him but under his terms. Due to desire and curiosity, Ana is lured to accept Christian's terms not knowing what she has gotten herself into. Christian then introduces her to his lifestyle. At first, she is hesitant to push through because she is unfamiliar and scared but her longing to be with him exceeds more than other feelings. Hence, she willingly takes her chances with him.
Ana wishes to have a loving relationship with Christian. Yet, their arrangement excludes this sentiment. She happily tries to adjust and accept the type of relationship that Christian can offer but eventually she grows weary and decides to leave.
