Just 50 days until my novel, The Lone Wolf, launches!!
After her husband’s infidelities are revealed, Kasey Sanford just wants to rediscover who she is. After an abusive childhood and years as a career soldier, Andrew Adams just wants someone to tell him that he’s doing the right thing with his life. When their paths cross, Kasey and Andrew embark on a tumultuous journey that demonstrates just what they’re willing to do to save the ones they love.
Continuing on from last week, Andrew had a fight with his girlfriend Lauren and stomped out. It’s the middle of the night, and he’s gone back to their apartment to try to patch things up. She wants him to move with her from Kentucky to North Carolina, but he’s concerned about how difficult it’ll be for him.
“This head nursing position is a really good thing for me, for us, for our future,” said Lauren. “I’m taking it whether you move with me or not, but I want you to come with.”
That woke me up. “You’re accepting the job? You said you’d wait until we agreed on what we were going to do, that we’d figure it out together.”
“Well, when you told me how selfish I was and stormed out, I decided you were right, I am selfish. So I called the hospital and accepted the job, which means either you’re coming with me, or you’re staying here by yourself.”
“You woke me up in the middle of the night to give me an ultimatum?”

Wrong time to spill the news. I’m eager to read what comes next. Solid eight with great conflict.
Oh my, she’s a beotch! You told me I’m selfish and instead of working on that…I’m just going to agree and do what I want. I’m glad he won’t be with someone like her…
So much emotion here! Wonderful excerpt. You really have a handle on showing the complexities of real people :-)
Wow, another emotional eight! Well done, ED. I can’t wait to read The Lone Wolf…50 days is less than two months, though, right?
These two are clearly not meant for each other and the sooner they realize it, the better! Excellent excerpt, I’m really drawn into the emotions…
ditto on the great job conveying the emotion and tension in this. she’s basically telling him bye. hope he finds better
Such tension and and conflict. Will they be able to work it out?
Ach, that’s tough, but if the money is going to hep…I hope they figure it out. Great 8. :)
She’s definitely selfish.
You called me on my sh!t, so I’m going to force you to do what I want.
So she decided to accept her own selfishness and embrace it. Somehow I think she was right to take that job and now it’s for him to decide what he wants to do with his life.
Oh wow! Yup, she definitely gave him the ultimatum. Curious to know how he’s going to handle that! Conflict! ;)
