Marrying her High School sweetheart Jade thinks things cant get any better. She has finally found someone stable in her life and cannot wait to live the rest of it as Mrs. Hunter Hayes. Little does she know that happy ever after is about to change and it just seems to keep getting worse. Fearing for her life and with the help of a good friend she manages to escape the hell that has been her life for too long.. But to what?

Chance has issues of his own but after a brief meeting in a parking lot, then finding himself standing in front of this beautiful girl that takes his breath away for a second time, he finds himself making excuses to be where she is. Soon he is starting to think about giving up his bachelor lifestyle if she would only give him a Chance.. Can he win her over and prove to her that she needs him as much as he needs her?

Together they find themselves connecting and after some extreme circumstances we find ourselves wondering will they be able to find their ways together or will they only end in disaster?



I went to bed that night feeling the best I have in a long time. Too bad my mind wasn’t at peace.

“9-1-1 What is your emergency?”

“I just got home and I found my husband lying on the floor. He’s unconscious and his breathing is slow. Please send someone quick!” I yelled into the phone.

Trying to get me to calm down the operator started asking questions until help could arrive.

“Ma’am, does your husband have any medical conditions that would cause him to be like this?”

“No, he has never had any issues. WHAT should I do?”

“Can you check for a pulse? Do you see anything around him that may have caused a reaction? Help is on the way.”

I set the phone down and I tried feeling for a pulse, but could not tell if what I was feeling his or mine… I could still see him breathing and when I turned there it was—an empty pill bottle with a few left scattered by it.

Whimpering I return to the phone, “I—uh—I just found a pill bottle lying by him and there are ANTS crawling out of his MOUTH!”

This was where I woke up. It was always where I woke up when I had this particular dream.

  1. Thanks for the intro, Karen and nice to meet you, V.!
    I, too, have very disconcerting dreams. Now, I’m afraid I’m going to be dreaming of ants crawling from someone’s orifices….gahhhh
