[The first three chapters of my book FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING. This is just a preview! Many things may change when we edit and publish.] During lockdown, good friends Sabrina and Victor spent a few days together in the same apartment. She was starting a cafe; he was teaching her some of his family's recipes. They made sandwiches, then made out, and almost had sex. At 39, it would have been her first time, and she had just been laid off, and she was just about to put all of her savings into a business that would open during a pandemic-anyway, she panicked. And fled, and did not return any of his calls or messages. And regretted it ever since. That night looked like a rejection, but Victor was never mad at Sabrina about it. They'd known each other for a long time, and if anything had happened he would have failed at being in a relationship. He was already everything to everyone, from keeping the family business running, to being the reliable eldest son while the world was seemingly on fire. No time to fall in love, even with one of his favorite people. Two years later, and it's still not the right time, their world is in an even worse mess, but Sabrina calls him anyway and asks if they could try again. Which part? Everything.
