This is not about wandering hearts. It’s not about desiring to cause trouble. This isn’t about insecurity, hate or revenge on a loving partner. This isn’t about a loveless marriage or a person with a screwed up moral compass.
Maybe you are confident that your own relationship is strong. Maybe you are each other’s world. Maybe you have what others are trying to find. Maybe you know in a heartbeat it can change…
A marriage is put to the test. Jordan is revealing her secrets. They tried this past summer with going through fertility treatment only for it to fail. Her husband Josh has taken a second job to support them. The long hours are starting to put a strain on the relationship and Jordan often finds herself alone. One day she meets Devon online. He is charming, fun and is also a writer. Jordan knows that she likes him but dismisses the thought at first…This is a romance.

Saturday morning I wake up in my mom and dad’s camper. They have one of those goose neck trailers that has a full bedroom and bathroom equipped with a sink, shower stall and toilet, that would rest over a truck bed and stepping down to the main area is a living room and kitchen that tip out giving more space with its open concept layout. I am snuggled beneath the sheets on the pull out couch in the living room; Dad is up and is already outside. I can see him on the deck just outside my window, and the coffee machine is on and gurgling as it’s brewing, the smell of a medium blend fills the air. I lay there in bed for a few minutes and grab my phone to play with.
I open up Twitter, wow more followers. For every follower that I receive, I send them a personal message, thanking them for following and providing a link to my book. This morning is no different.
Follow, copy, paste, follow, copy, paste is what I do in Twitter and even then I had no idea what would become of a copy, paste of a message to a complete stranger. I never knew that this one person would make me question everything.
I receive a message back, “Hi there, thanks for following me back. You sure are popular. I write too. Here are my links, here are my websites, and I am also on Wattpad.”
Wow, this guy sends a lot of messages. I politely respond, “No problem, happy to connect with someone that has the same interests.”
He responds back, “I am so proud of my work and I hope you enjoy what I posted on Wattpad.”
Oh boy, do I have time to commit to another book right now? I sit up and I respond, “Your book sounds interesting, but I don’t have Wattpad. I’ll have to download it once I’m home.”
He responds, “Oh, how are you enjoying the weekend?”
I sigh should I answer this, should I be worried about what I tell this stranger? I take a moment and look at his sites to see who he actually is. He is an author, he has a decent biography, seems like a nice guy. It won’t hurt to share with him a little bit more, “I am spending the weekend up at camp with my mom and dad.”
He replies back, “Oh that must be nice, I used to live up north, not far from you, Rochester.”
He must have seen the city where I live from my Twitter biography. I answer, “Oh yes, I would be a few hours north of Rochester, so I see that you live in Texas? P.S. Cowboys are yummy, just saying.”
“Yep, been here for five years, but really I’m a Yankee. I miss it, the seasons.”
I respond, “I love warm temperatures, you are lucky to not have to deal with snow.”
“I admit the warm weather is nice but I miss living up north.”
I answer him, “Have you seen my Twitter picture from last winter, all that snow. I can’t stand cleaning the driveway.”
He answers back, “Yes, I guess that would be the not so fun part.”
I want to wrap this up but don’t want it to sound too curt, I’m hungry, I’ll write this, “It is right around breakfast time for me, I’m going to step away to eat. I’ll have to get Wattpad to read your work and will get to it soon. Have a great day and thanks for the chat.”
I send the message and shortly after he responds. “I’ll take a look at your book too. Thank you and enjoy your weekend up at camp, Bye.”
I put my phone down not thinking anything more. Mom has come down from the bedroom and is in the kitchen putting breakfast together.
She asks, “So were you looking at your book sales again?”
“No just sending out messages to my Twitter peeps, that’s all.” I get out of the pull out bed and join mom in the kitchen, putting some bread in the toaster and make a glass of chocolate milk. Basically the day goes by as planned. We eat, I go for a walk with mom, come back and relax, eat lunch then go to the beach to read, sunbathe, swim and then dinner time arrives and soon we are into the later hours of the night. The day was a good one and by the next day I hate to say it, but the person that I had been talking to on Twitter I had already forgotten his name. I forgot about the promise I made, to look at his work and download Wattpad. I forgot. I didn’t mean to, it’s just with family here social media sort of takes a back seat to reality. Well, back then it did.

She lives with her ruggedly handsome husband and cute Maltese fur baby in Ottawa, Canada which is a really cold place (she should move somewhere warmer).
