I have no idea why I named it that, except the decision that my female MC, Gabby, needs to make is such a no brainer. Duh.
“Your mom, she’s okay?”
“More than okay. It was just me and her for a long time, you know? She put herself through nursing school, put me through school. She made it work.”
“She must have given you your spunk.”
“If that’s what you want to call it, yeah. I’m proud of her. When I graduated, she went back for another degree. And then she married one of her doctors, so…” Gabby stopped to laugh.
A knowing smile broke across his face. He nodded. “So she’s doing just fine, huh?”
“Just fine,” she said, nodding back.
“So your… stepdad? Is he a good guy?”
“He’s the best thing to ever happen to her. He’s why she’s always after me to date and meet new guys. She wants me to be as happy as she is.” Gabby snorted a laugh. Like she could subscribe to the fairytale her mother tried to plant in her head.
“You sound like you don’t think that’s possible. People find love everywhere. Anywhere. You never know.”
Even on the Sunset Strip. Wait. What?
Et Voila. I hope you’ll read the rest later on today!
