Contemporary Romance: Meet Allison Denman of Wish You Were Here
“Why can’t life be black and white, God? Why won’t you give me a happy ending?” She drew her knees up, resting her chin on her folded arms. “I’m trying to do the right things–shouldn’t that guarantee me happiness?” ~Allison Denman in Wish You Were Here
In less than two weeks, Beth K. Vogt is going to share my life with all her readers.
Oh, sure, to those of you who read Wish You Were Here, I’m only a fictional character — a figment of Beth’s imagination.
But how would you feel if the first time someone met you was when you were standing just inside the doorway of the church, waiting to walk down the aisle to say, “I do?”
And how would you feel if this new person could read your thoughts? Beth knew each step I took toward Seth Rayner on my wedding day was punctuated with the thoughts “I do. I can’t. I must.”
It’s difficult enough to wrestle with doubts. Try facing with them while you’re wearing a wedding dress that’s all wrong for you. While you’re trying to forget kissing the groom’s brother–who just happens to be standing next to him because, of course, he’s the best man.
Not that he’s the right man for me.
I just want to do the right thing, you know? Have you ever wanted to do the right thing? And then … all of a sudden … the right choice seems wrong.
I dated Seth Rayner since I was 17 years old. He was — is perfect for me. He makes me feel safe. Secure.
How can one kiss … a mistake … make me question all my hopes and dreams — all my plans?
In Your Words: Have you ever experienced having a mistake turn into the right thing?
