She's out of her rut, out of her sweatpants, and out on the town.
Claire Parelli has been liberated!
Back to living it up in the Big Apple with her best friends, Claire embarks upon her dream career during the day, and steams up her nights with Daniel Chase, a.k.a. Mr. Beautiful, Hollywood's hottest leading man. Life is simply perfect.
But for how long?
Claire knows all too well that fairy tales just don't exist, even if she does have Fairy Slutmothers on her side. Real-life comes with real problems that don't simply vanish with a quick flick of the wand.
So this time around Claire discovers that it isn't just a matter of trust—it'll be a moment of truth.
Dan woke me in the middle of the night, which he hilariously called “dawn,” dragged me out of bed and drove us to our ledge to watch the sun rise on our last day together. He fluffed out a soft blanket and situated us, cocooned together side by side, inside another warm blanket. We’ve been sitting here for a bit now, simply being quiet together.
There's a peaceful rush of waves and the still of the morning, and I smile, relishing in this very moment.
And then . . . “Dan?”
“I love that you brought us here, but . . . we’re never going to see the sun rise.”
He turns to look at me. “What? Of course we will.”
I smile. “No. This ledge faces west, and the sun rises in the east.”
He stares at me a moment, and we break into laughter.
