Doug, Doug Storm, that is. The handsome architect who won Meg’s heart can no longer take the years of waiting.

Totally broken in spirit and heart, he sends Meg a message. It’s over. “I can’t do this anymore.”

Meg felt her feet dissapearing in quicksand, slowly encircling her, squeezing tightly every breath she tried to take. Her heart sank deeper and deeper, sucking down her last ray of hope.

Doug realizes he cannot go on without Meg. But, can free-spirited Meg live with the new ground rules Doug has requested of her?

Meg’s jealousy flounders in a constant pool of uncertainty, while Doug wrestles with his own insecurities of knowing Meg remains living with Noah.

Doug’s world crumbled like storm waves battering sand castles standing majestically at the edge of the beach.

‘911! What’s your emergency?’ Words no one wants to hear. The medic’s attempts to save Meg’s life set in motion questions that had unknown answers.
