Stepping Out of the Comfort Zone
At the start of my romantic comedy, Her Handyman, the hero, Jake, is engaged to Angelina, whom he’s known for ages. His fiance is perfect in every way. She’s curvy, organized, hardworking and a wonderful cook to boot! What more could a guy want?
Then, by happenstance, he’s called out in the dead of night to fix an emergency toilet leak. That’s when he meets the quirky Zoe, who’s way different than Angelina. Zoe’s a rich, thin artist. She’s impulsive and unconcerned about minor details, such as keeping everything in its place and free from dust. Her on-the-fly meals often consist of raw fruits and vegetables, with occasional carryouts for variety. She appears perfectly content to hide away in her penthouse, in the sole company of her Chinese Crested canine, FuFu.
Jake’s future is arranged. There’s no reason for him to think twice about Zoe. Still, there’s something about her courage in the face of what he senses are hidden fears that draws him to her. Though she’s wealthy, in his mind she’s a waif, or poor little rich girl.
Jake can’t change his nature, which is to respond to people in need. Though Zoe claims to be happy with her lot in life, he knows deep down she’s needy.
On the other hand, Angelina has it all together, and would make a perfect wife. But, is perfect what’s best for him?
What should he do? Go ahead with a sure thing, or step out of the comfort zone? What would you do, take a chance or go with a sure thing?
Read Her Handyman to find out how Jake handles the situation.
