He can’t stop dreading his future.
Together, they’ll discover the beauty of the present.
It was weird seeing you today after all these years.
It was even weirder trying to explain to my new coworkers how you and I know each other.
How do I explain our one-day fling when we promised to keep it a secret?
How do I explain how I agreed to spend 24 hours with a handsome British stranger I met on the subway?
How do I explain our decision to end those magical 24 hours by telling each other our darkest secrets?
Or our decision to not exchange names or phone numbers?
How do I explain I fell in love with an anonymous stranger?
Our flame was supposed to burn one day, but for me it never died.
I almost pretended not to know you. I thought that might be easier for both of us.
I’ve always wondered what would happen if we ran into each other.
I didn’t think I’d be rendered speechless.
God, that was embarrassing.
I know we’re supposed to stay away from each other.
But that rule was a lot easier to follow when I didn’t know your name.

The seeds of doubt have been planted.
Two to six weeks. That’s how long it takes, on average, to get a divorce in Oregon.
With Jack convinced I betrayed him, I expect to be served divorce papers within hours of moving out. But weeks pass without word from Jack, and the papers never arrive. Though my heart isn’t ready to give up on him, I can’t shake the feeling that we may be better off apart. And Isaac is more than happy to help me move on.
But just as I begin to build some semblance of a life and career, a new and improved Jack arrives on my doorstep. Divorce papers are the furthest thing from his mind as he delivers news that both shatters me and restores my faith in the love we shared. But is it too late for us?
Where flowers bloom, love grows.
With Jack determined to correct his past mistakes, and to help me cope with the news about Junior’s murderer, I find myself hardly able to function, my soul weighed down by renewed grief and crippling guilt.
When I confess my sins to Jack, watching the light in his blue eyes go dim with every word I speak, I know I will not soon be forgiven. Maybe I don’t deserve forgiveness.
When I confess my new predicament to Isaac, I’m met with words of comfort and an apology that leaves me reeling with regret.
I am truly my own worst enemy.
But I refuse to give up. With a renewed sense of purpose, I am determined to weed out my destructive habits and bloom into the person and the mother I was meant to be.
