Life is complicated. One day you're working as an intern at a prominent New York law firm, and then suddenly you find yourself irrevocably in love with one of the senior partners. You know it's pointless. Not only is he almost ten years your senior, but he has a girlfriend. A beautiful, intelligent, gracefully poised girlfriend. You know that nothing will come of this. But you can't help yourself, because life, is complicated. 


He’s staring at me from across the room. I want so badly to go to him. Yet at the same time an irrational anger swells within me. He has become my life. Somehow, without my consent or conscious knowledge, he has taken little pieces of me; implanted himself within my memories. Every waking moment I can feel his presence on my skin, hovering just above the surface like thick, humid air. Every pulse beats against him. In this moment I want nothing more than to be alone. He’s still staring at me.
