Life had dealt Cassie a few hard blows. She was still reeling from the last one. Her crooked manager had absconded with most of her hard earned money, leaving her with a big tax bill. The coveted golden knight otherwise called an Oscar award lay forgotten at the back of her sock drawer. When she won the award at 21, it had been her crowning glory. At 36, it looked like it was going to be her swan song. Cassie wasn’t sure if she cared much either way.

She stepped out of the pool and settled into her favorite cabana, letting the sun dry her. Her phone chirped and her face lit up as her best bud’s face flashed on the screen.

“It’s about time,” she said with a pout, activating the video feature on the phone.

A buff, bare-chested man blew a kiss at her and laughed. It was hard to tell he was ten years younger.

“Don’t sulk, Cassie. It will give you wrinkles.”

Cassie straightened her mouth immediately and smiled. “So when are you getting here, Bobby? I have great plans for us.”
