Missed earlier chapters? Begin here The mysterious trip Halfway through the morning, Rebecca called her on her work phone. “What’s going on? Are we going to chat about your mysterious weekend or what?” Rebecca wanted to know details. Samantha chuckled at her friend’s insistence. “There’s nothing to say,” she replied, but decided to add a ‘yet’ at the end of that declaration. “This better be good,” Rebecca told her. “Let’s do it this weekend. Do you want to meet up or do you have the kids?” “I go the kids, and Jessie has practice,” Samantha told her, indicating she’ll be at … Continue reading Music Lovers – Chapter 10
Missed earlier chapters? Begin here Refresher: Chapter 8 – Deafening silence (Samantha struggled with Adam’s ghosting for an entire week.) Anxious to get Friday over with, Samantha went to bed early again on Thursday night, purposely leaving her phone in the laundry room. But she had trouble falling and staying asleep and tossed and turned all night. At one point, she reached for her tablet and watched some soft-core porn just to feel something. She briefly contemplated getting her wand but decided she was too lazy to get up and besides, it probably wasn’t charged anyway. The porn helped bring … Continue reading Music Lovers – Chapter 9
Trigger warning: Ghosting. If you’re triggered by this topic (even though this story is fiction) perhaps wait until you’re in a better headspace to read on.
Samantha called her friend Rebecca during her lunch hour on Monday. She went to a staff room to get away from her desk and absentmindedly poked at her chicken spinach salad.
“I was worried about you,” Rebecca said a little agitated. “It’s not like you to not answer or respond, Sam.”
“I had plans,” Samantha said. “I went out.”Continue reading “Music Lovers – Chapter 8”
Reflective drive home
Later that Sunday, Adam arranged for Samantha to get her car back. By the time the afternoon had arrived, she was ready to head home and decompress. She dreaded the coming work week and wondered if she’d be able to concentrate at all.
Unsurprisingly, throughout the drive home, her thoughts kept returning to her night with Adam.Continue reading “Music Lovers – Chapter 7”

Sitting in the hot tub with Adam felt wonderfully relaxing, but also a little naughty. They were both naked, and submersed completely under the bubbling water.Continue reading “Music Lovers – Chapter 6”
Adam must have sensed her hesitation when she took her time responding to his question. He looked at her expectantly before acknowledging her answer. “I have an idea,” he said after a while. “Let me show you something.” Continue reading Music Lovers – Chapter 5
A special song with a message
When Samantha arrived at the concert venue and, with sheer luck of the draw, found a spot to park in, she suddenly felt a little hesitant.
What am I doing here, she worried.
She didn’t even know where she was going.
She felt her old insecurities crop up again. But she quickly gave herself a pep talk to pull herself out of her funk.Continue reading “Music Lovers – Chapter 4”
Pushing past comfort zones
Samantha went into her bedroom with Adam’s tickets for his concert and put them on her dresser. She stood in the middle of the small room and looked at the floor-length mirrored sliding doors of her closet.
She needed something to wear to this event. But what?Continue reading “Music Lovers – Chapter 3”

The following morning, Samantha woke up disoriented and confused. For a moment she didn’t know where she was.
She blinked a few times, looked around, and recognized her bedroom.Continue reading “Music Lovers – Chapter 2”
A crash and some coffee
Samantha walked along a busy street lined with shops and storefronts, deep in thought and quietly humming a tune. Bundled up in her winter coat with half her face hidden behind her hat and scarf, she kept her head down to protect herself from the cold wind. Despite the tall buildings in this part of the downtown core, she could still feel the icy breeze whip around corners and slice into the exposed skin on her face.Continue reading “Music Lovers – Chapter 1”
Inspired by a show I watched recently, I cooked up a little romantic story. Enjoy. Feedback encouraged. See you in the comments.
Heat beyond the fire station
Samantha sat on the edge of the ottoman, facing the TV on the wall. Abby stood behind her, between the ottoman and couch, rubbing arnica lotion into her shoulders.
“This will soothe your tight muscles,” Abby said, kneading Samantha’s shoulders with concentration and completely oblivious to Chloe’s hard stare.
