I am currently finishing up chapter 5 and Jessica has awhile to go before she can find happiness again. I know I've mentioned before that I am very excited about the direction this story line is headed and I can't wait to reach the breaking point with Jess.
It was getting late and he still wasn't home... Jessica looked out of the living room window, her forehead pressed against the glass, as she peered down the road. The darkened neighborhood was quiet. All the kids had gone in for the night. Worry began to set in as she paced from one room to another.
“Why hasn’t he called?” She wondered glancing over at the clock once again.Jason and Jessica had been married for three months. It was the happiest three months Jessica had felt in a long time. Not only was she married to a prominent young attorney who she had fallen head over heels for when they first met attending Princeton but things had finally managed to turn around with her family as well.
They were truly in love and had finally become husband and wife. Never wanting to be separated from one another as any newlywed, they tried to make it home every evening at a decent hour so they could share a nice dinner together. On the occasion when one or the other had to stay late at the firm they would always call the other to make aware of their plans. So it was odd that tonight when Jason had not arrived home at his usual 5:45 pm that Jessica had not received a call or even a text from him. Glancing at her watch and making her way back over to peer out the window for what seemed like the umpteenth time she began to really become worried.
“Almost eight,” she announced to the empty room. Once again dialing Jason’s number trying to reach him but reaching his voice mail instead, Jessica decided to try the office again. The after-hours business recorder switched on and she hastily entered his extension number, trying the operator and a few of Jason’s colleagues whom she knew, but there was still no answer. The only other option at this point was to take a drive over there. Perhaps he was having car trouble and his cell phone battery had died. Or maybe there was an important case and they had been locked away in the conference room trying to find evidence for the case and had lost track of time. Please let it be anything other than something serious like an accident.***
