love with a man who would die before the ink was dry on our marriage
But that’s what fate had in store for me. It broke me. I vowed I’d never fall
in love again.
Five years later, fate had one more thing planned. It wanted to play around in
my life again. Its tool? Another blasted stick of gum. Same place, only this
time, it was Jude Baker, a university lecturer, who slipped on the gum.
Despite being a pacifist, Jude wasn’t particularly happy about having gum stuck
to his shoe and made his distaste abundantly clear.
But that stick of gum was the catalyst to a series of events where our paths
would continue to cross. There would be a broken nose, a fractured hand, a cat
on a lead and a crashed corporate Christmas party that would align our hearts
and make me realise that I wanted to be happy again.
But there would also be tears. Many, many tears. Because falling in love
was never easy, especially when you were still in love with another man.
