When your first unrequited love could possibly be your last…
When Marcelle Boudreaux walked into the bar to meet up with her friends and family on Christmas night, she never dreamed she’d be face to face with her high school crush who she hadn’t been able to shake in fifteen years. Though she’d pined for him, the first and only words he’d spoken to her had been a profession of love made out the window of a speeding car on his graduation night, leaving her in unrequited torture for years.
Now, she stands face-to-face with him, ready to speak her first words ever to him. Even though she’s now a Hollywood producer who commands a major television production in her day job, she finds the only word she can utter is, “Hi.” As he’s pulled into another conversation, she realizes she might be once again letting her chance with Patrick Lamontagne slip away.
Back in high school, Patrick’s anxiety had paralyzed him from talking to girls, most notably, Marcelle Boudreaux. If it was possible to love someone he saw every day but never spoke to, that was what had happened for him. Social Media tells him she lives the Hollywood life, so even though he’s now versed in asking women out, that old high school anxiety creeps back in.
Going another moment without talking to the only woman he's never forgotten isn’t an option. He will talk to her tonight, and if all goes as he’s always dreamed, he will turn his first love into his last.
