iteration heard my plea! She took what I wrote and expanded on it beautifully, and now has a WIP telling the rest of the story. I love how she shows these two deeply damaged, screwed-up people haltingly finding their way toward each other.

John is still trying to figure out this little mouse of a woman who’s hired him, who can do anything with computers and has more money than God and who can barely walk and yet somehow always manages to evade him, who won’t tell him anything about herself but who says she knows everything about him – and he knows that can’t be true, it can’t –
When he realizes, she’s actually attracted to him.
