She heard her mother sigh deeply from the doorway. “You’re telling me there isn’t one person out there that could spark your interest?”

“Not one.”

Anne waited til she heard her mother walk away before looking past her book to the street below. Like everyday, Jared Elliot was walking home from work. Maybe there was one person.
