One Day in December

Either you’re in the wrong place at the wrong time or you’re in the right place at the right time…but, have you ever been at the right place at the wrong time?

Laurie was having a typical day as she was riding the bus home from work on a snowy December day in London when her eyes locked eyes with a man who quite literally took her breath away.  As she silently willed him to get on at this stop, the bus pulled away and crushed her heart with each passing block.  She would spend the next year searching London with her best friend, Sarah, for her “bus boy.”  Just when she thinks she will never find him, she sees him at a Christmas party a year later; except, he is being introduced as Sarah’s new boyfriend, Jack.  Distraught, Laurie tries to navigate her complex predicament of being in love with her best friend’s boyfriend, and it doesn’t make their situation any easier that Jack drops hints that he might feel the same way.  Vowing to not act on their feelings, they decide it is best to move on in life as friends.  Through future relationships with other people, they remain a constant in each other’s lives.  Over the next ten years they are left questioning whether they made the right decision to chalk up their love at first sight moment on the bus as a purely coincidental moment in time where their paths just happened to cross.  One thing is for sure; they are forever tied to each other, and the ending of their love story is theirs to either write or theirs to dismiss.
