The car skidded dangerously on the rain-slicked, two-lane highway as Kelli Colter floored the gas pedal. The hem of her pristine white wedding gown was splattered with mud.
"You stood me up, you son of a bitch! On our wedding day!" she screamed into the closed confines of her Lexus.
Tears of frustration and humiliation streamed down her cheeks. Outside, the sunny but cool day was beginning to slide into night. On the windshield, raindrops once again began to obscure the view in front of her. Tall, stately pine trees edged the right side of Highway-97, and on the left, there was a sheer drop to the forest floor below.
The cell phone in her dainty beaded bag, sewn especially for her wedding day, chirped. Kelli's throat constricted with overwhelming sadness, and her stomach churned. Why was she so attracted to men who rejected her and dumped her?
"I thought you loved me, Randy," she shouted into the tension-filled air. "I never would have believed you'd jilt me right at the altar, right where all our friends were gathered to see us join as man and wife."
The phone chirped again. Kelli ignored its insistent ring.
She was thirty-two. She'd dated a lot of men but hadn't felt that zing for them, that rightness between them that would lead her to consider marriage. Not until she'd met Randy, a dashing, handsome man who'd swept her off her feet from the moment she'd met him. Kelli couldn't believe it had only been three months ago. She'd made such a fool of herself! Making love to him with abandon, as if there was no tomorrow. He'd been insatiable when it had come to sex. No place was out of bounds for coitus. An elevator, her car, the kitchen table, even in the Seattle park as the sun set. And she'd thrown herself at him. All for what? So he could decide at the last moment he didn't want her beside him for the rest of their lives?
