Sabrina

 

The story: A very pretty daughter of rich manís driver was obsessed with the rich manís younger son, David, a shallow, handsome youth whom she watched from the treetop all her life. Her father lived over the garage of the estate and over the years she observed the house parties from the treetop. Davidís span of attention to the numerous girls he was attracted to was two visits. His elder brother Linus, who was running the fatherís billion dollar business, was unmarried and a devoted businessman negotiating a billion dollar merger with the Tyson company. David and Sabrina were childhood mates, but they had not met for a few years.

†† Davidís mother sent Sabrina to Paris for work experience with a friend, where she learned photography and the Parisian way of life. Sabrina returned home after a few months with a different hairstyle and even prettier looks. David saw her on the roadside and offered her a lift, not recognising her. He invited her to his motherís birthday party at home. This was a dream come true for Sabrina. Linus, the elder brother, recognised her when they reached the house, and when David realised she was Sabrina, he was surprised. She went to the evening party and danced with David. She lost her breath. It was obvious to the mother and to Linus that David was falling in love with Sabrina. But David had already become engaged and was supposed to marry Tysonís daughter and cement the merger. So Linus decided to wean Sabrina away from David. He took her away for two days when David was in bed due to an accident. Linus was subconsciously attracted to her, and proposed to take her to Paris. She became confused, overwhelmed, but Linus persisted. She physically responded to him, and when he saw that, he felt sorry for his trick and disclosed his lie to her. Disillusioned, she went to Paris with the ticket he gave her after taking leave of her father who revealed that he had earned two million dollars over the years through stock investments. Linus narrated the developments to David. Then he changed his mind and wanted Sabrina to be with David instead of the Tyson girl.David became furious with Linus for trifling with Sabrinaís feelings, attacked him and offered Sabrina to Linus, realising that Linus really loved Sabrina.Linus rushed to Paris and joined Sabrina.
