The Trouble With Jake

Coming In November 2021

Kathryn has it all figured out. She’s halfway toward getting her degree and her boyfriend proposed last night.

Then, she finds him, in his childhood bedroom doing not so childish things to her best, err former best friend.

She drives all night. In the morning, she wakes, realizing in her grief, she headed to her favourite summer place, the wharf at White’s Bluff. When she was a kid, she imagined she had an imaginary protector here. God knows, she could use a protector now.

Jake was twenty-three when he watched his farm burn to the ground. He’d seen a lot happen through the decades since as a ghost, or whatever he was.

Every summer he’d wait with anticipation for Kathryn and her family to dock their boat at the wharf. Out of all the visitors to White’s Bluff, he felt a special affinity with them. He’d even saved Kathryn’s life once.

Now as he stands in front of her at the edge of the wharf, she asks, “Did I ever thank you for saving me that day?”
