It’s not a concept Charlotte Rose has ever considered.
She’s busted her tail her entire life.
Worked at her doomed marriage
and slaved to build the company she loves.

Charlotte needs a fresh start.
So she packs up and moves across the ocean,

I offer. “If we are meant to be friends, I’m sure the stars will align and we
will meet again.” I was channeling my inner Louise with that line of rubbish. I
have to bite the inside of my lower lip to keep myself from smiling.

best. This is the first day of my exciting new life, the last thing I want or
need is to get tangled up in a messy break up. “I’ll catch you later,” I say
with finality. Turning to walk away, I try to make a smooth departure but trip
on air. One second I’m falling and the next I’m caught around my waist and
lifted back up to my feet. I don’t even have a second to process what happened

too close for comfort. I take a step back so that I can breathe. “Thank you,

again,” he says softly, and then he turns and walks away.
