Who leaves their girlfriend in the woods after a fight? My now EX-boyfriend that’s who. One fight, okay a BIG fight because I found out he was cheating on me while we were camping, and poof! He left me in the woods. So, I start walking to town, only I get turned around end up at the river where I meet Axel. This guy is HUGE. With a storm rolling in I don’t have much choice but to trust him and take shelter in his cabin since I’ve been walking for hours AWAY from town. Several days of rain wash out the road and it looks like I’m stuck here with my giant. Only he’s nothing like I thought he’d be. He’s quiet, watchful, smart, and funny.
I’ve lived alone for years and I’ve been okay with that until one day she finds me bathing at the river. She is small, cute, and talks a lot. I find I don’t mind it. When the storm washes out the only road into town and she is stranded with me a while longer I am grateful for more time with her. I like her in my space, I like showing her what I do, and how I survive out here. I like her in my bed. After years of living alone, I find little appeal in it anymore. When her ex-boyfriend shows up at my door can I convince her to stay? Can I ask her to give up a life in town for one out here in the mountains with me? $0.99 on Kindle.
