I’ll admit to creep-stalking my Ex on Facebook.

When she came back into my head, I decided to use the memories as model for the protagonist in one of my novels-in-progress and, as characters often do, she literally wrote herself into the story. I always Google the names of potential characters beforehand, kind of like a title search before buying a home. You want to know who might hold a lien on the property before committing to the purchase, though it’s not like Natasha herself ever belonged to me, or to anyone.

The most worrisome thing is that there are no recent entries in her Facebook page, no new friends, nada. And none of her friends’ pages mention her. I’m seriously worried about this. Three thousand Americans are perishing from Coronavirus each and every day. Is it already too late to reconnect?
