“Promise me you’ll marry again after I’m gone.” It was the last thing he wished to think about now or ever. He’d never looked at another woman, not even during the months Camille had been so ill, with their sex life on hold. He couldn’t imagine lying next to another woman like this. Holding her in his arms. Making love to her.
“We are not having this conversation.” He spoke in a tone that invited no dissent. “You’re my wife. The only one I want. And you’re not going anywhere. That’s all there is to say on the subject.”
He pressed a finger to her lips. “Don’t. This is hard enough as it is.” From The Replacement Wife by Eileen Goudge, ©2012. Published by Open Road Media.
I’m very lucky to have met some fascinating people on my journey with writing, publishing, and blogging. Sometimes, it just starts with just a mention, or, in this case, a tweet. After a few Twitter conversations, I decided to ask my next guest if she could be interviewed on my website. After reading her story, she has also proven to be an inspiration. One of her short bios reads, “Natural-born talent is basically useless without the persistence to go with it. I was lucky enough to have been blessed with a deep and abiding love of books and writing coupled with an insane stick-to-it-iveness, which can be a double-edged sword.” Persistence is a characteristic that I really admire.
