“Life doesn’t always go according to plan. In fact, it has a nasty habit of veering off the map. So when my
job led me to New York City, something extraordinary happened…her script merged with mine.”
Hadley Theater, New York City, New York - Night
ENTER STAGE LEFT-Rowan Townsend, a twenty-nine year old Broadway starlet, strolls onto the dark,
ominous stage. The bright spotlight finds her and she smiles broadly, her body buzzing in anticipation.
Serendipity is a funny thing, isn’t it? It jumps out from behind the bushes and offers an unbelievable
chance at happiness. It’s hopeful and intriguing, and maybe even a little terrifying.
ENTER STAGE RIGHT-Lark Hawthorne, a striking twenty-nine year old FBI agent and self-proclaimed liar,
marches to Rowan and grabs her arm, coaxing her off stage.
Rowan, what are you doing? We need to leave. It’s not safe here.
Rowan and Lark look out into the audience and a menacing shadow in the back of the theater catches
their attention. Her eyes expand in panic and he grips her hand tighter, offering reassurance.
It’s now or never. Are you ready?
EXIT STAGE RIGHT. Fade to black.

I don’t care if it’s sinful. This feeling, right now, it makes all of the bad in my life seem like child’s play in
comparison. Landon and Cameron…they’re distant memories.
It’s almost as if I’ve waited all of my life to feel this way with this man.
“I want you. So much, Rowan,” Lark whispers. He reverberates pain, yet his voice is heady. Strained, he
hisses as I move my hands lower, settling on the hem of his pants.
I move my head to look at him. I place my hand on his cheek, and touch his bottom lip with my thumb.
He’s so soft, yet so incredibly masculine. I want to climb inside of his mind and explore every inch of
him. I want to discover all of his inner workings, his secrets. The ones he’ll openly admit to and the ones
he hides under his bed.
He clenches his teeth, but his eyes are inquisitive, curious. We stare at each other for an incalculable
amount of time. The seconds seem to pass at a glacial pace and in this moment, I’m thankful. I know
when this ends, it’ll be done for good.
It’s almost as if I’m visiting a foreign place and it’s my last day and I know if I don’t sample the unique
cuisine and take mental pictures of the scenery, I’ll never find the feeling deep inside of me again. It’ll be
My stomach flops at the thought.
“Lark.” I breathe. Saying his name in this setting is enough to send me over the edge and into the
His body vibrates as the word passes my lips, and he moves his face closer to mine. His lips are
millimeters from making contact and all I’d have to do is breathe and we’d be connected, but I refuse to
“Say it, again,” he demands, his breath washing over my face. “This might be the last time. Say it one
more time, please. For me.” He closes his eyes with a small smile playing on the edge of his lips. His
hand makes its way up to my face again and he clings to me as if I’m his anchor, tethering him to this
I muster all of the courage I have and mutter his name, letting it float out of my mouth, my lips brushing
his in the slightest.
Lark hisses, and this time, I know it’s in longing.
