After ten years, life is giving them a second chance…
Tushar will do anything to rekindle his marriage.
Keeping his wife safe is his number one priority.
Hiding in the Mountains of Montana is their best chance at survival.
Trish isn’t on the same page.
She wants more time with the son she hasn’t seen for ten years.
She wants her life back.
What if it turns out no place is safe?
The sparks that brought them together two decades ago are still burning.
Neither is willing to take the risk.
But second chances should never be squandered.
Awakened only three weeks ago, Trish finds herself in a cabin in the middle of nowhere Montana. Away from her son and all things familiar. Well everything except her husband Tushar, and she’s not sure how she feels about him.
Tushar had brought this change on them by taking full responsibility for the scientists that had been cryogenically frozen ten years prior. That declaration brought out even more protestors and threats to not only his life but his wife’s as well.
“I have a call scheduled with Temple later this morning. Maybe she’ll have something good to tell us.”
“Maybe.” “At some point we’re going to have to talk to each other, Trish.” He tried not to sound desperate.
“We are talking.”
Stifling another groan, he continued, “You know what I mean. About us. About the future. About where we’re going and what we want to do next.” About saving our marriage.
She finally turned around. “You’re right. But I need more time. I’m still a little angry. Don’t push me.”
“Why exactly are you so angry?” He shouldn’t have asked. He really shouldn’t have asked.
She rolled her eyes. “You pressured me into coming here, Tushar. I wasn’t ready. I told you I wasn’t ready. Now here we are in the middle of nowhere doing what? Waiting? There’s no guarantee the threat against our lives will ever go away. Are we going to stay here forever?”
He took a deep breath. “It wasn’t my idea.” Not initially.
She threw her hands in the air. “Oh, come on. You practically jumped up and down when Temple suggested this little vacation. You wouldn’t listen to me. I. Was. Not. Ready.”
He swallowed. Maybe he should have given her more time first. He’d been so anxious to get out of that bunker that he hadn’t listened to her. She was right. “I couldn’t breathe, Trish. I felt like I was choking on the air in that confined space.”
“We lived in that bunker for years. It never bothered you before.”
He nodded, rubbing the back of his neck with one hand. “I know. You’re right. Something changed. I changed. So did you. When I woke up, all I wanted to do was make sure you also survived the reanimation. Once you opened your eyes and I could inhale again, I realized the place was suffocating me.”
He shrugged. “Probably because I feel out of sorts. After years of being one of the top medical professionals in my field, I don’t even know what’s happening in that lab. I feel…impotent. I needed to get out of there. I don’t have the faintest idea what I want to do next, but I had to escape.”
She stared at him for several seconds. “I can see that. I might have felt the same way in another few weeks, but we’ll never know because you didn’t give me a chance. I needed more time to reconnect with my son.” She dropped her arms, turned, and walked out of the room. Seconds later she shut the door to their bedroom a little harder than necessary. And seconds after that he heard the shower running.
