Excerpt from the book
The conversations between Nikki and Cam grew far more frequent and personal in nature. There were still many nights when he lay awake, torturing himself over all he had to lose. But in talking to her, he was thunderstruck, discovering that he was indeed interesting and exciting. And that he could still feel good. He was all at once deflected from the doom and gloom that had been defining his days recently. Even the fear of losing his job seemed to pale with time. Maybe he did not have to settle. Maybe he did not have to be a regular Joe – the safe, predictable guy who had numbed himself to a world filled with excitement and opportunity. The longer he got away with it, the more invincible he felt.

“Do things ever get easier when you are an adult?” she once asked. He had just gotten finished making some phone calls to the parents of a few of his students when his phone went off.

“Do things ever get easier?” he repeated laughing.

“Yeah, you know. Once you are older, and in control of what you do.”

“Easier? No, not easier. Different? Yes. But easier? No way. I have doubts sometimes too Nikki,” he explained. “I feel sometimes like I have gotten stuck in things in my life just because it was comfortable and expected. I think I was duped by the safety of it all. You know, I stayed with my high school girlfriend even though it wasn’t right just because I thought I should be with her forever. Then I met Hayley and the same is true. I’ve always been this way. I majored in English, and my parents were thrilled. ‘Oh, it will be so nice to have a teacher in the family.’ That’s not what I decided. But, naturally, the next safe, logical thing was to teach – because what else would you do with an English degree? Right?”

Saying the words out loud made more him certain that pursuing this thing, whatever it was, was just what he needed.

“Well, I kinda know what you mean,” she said. “Obviously, I don’t understand all of that, but in my house, I am just expected to know what to do. Nobody really bothers too much with me. I’m sort of on my own.”

“What about your brothers and sisters?” “Gone,” she said. “All of them are grown up and out of the house. My oldest sister Karina is thirty two, Shari is twenty nine, and Lauren is twenty seven. I was obviously an oops.” 

“Hey, don’t say that. Come on now. How do you know that’s the case?” … 

“They’re always busy,” she explained. “My dad’s an attorney at some big firm in the city, and my mom is a hospital administrator or something like that at Franklin General. They’re never around. And when they are, they are always picking at me about something.”

Every night, for several weeks, the two of them talked. She was becoming so much more than this young, beautiful object of his raw desire. She was, in many ways, this newly discovered life source, coursing through his body. Everything he had, and everything he saw, was sort of redefined now in terms of her.
