TWO OUTTA THREE Excerpt

Two Outta Three jacket

The old-fashioned bells my dad refused to take off the front doors rung as the glass door opened. Seeing as we weren’t due to open for another thirty minutes, I could only guess who had walked into the door. My beating heart certainly knew.

“Mr. Rossi?” The familiar voice was like a melody. It reminded me of an old favorite song that you hadn’t heard in years, but were still able to recite line by line with ease. Despite the years of silence, I still knew that voice so well.

“Over here, Jesse.”

My palms instantly moistened. Taking a deep breath, I wiped them against my faded jeans, unsure of what to do with myself. Trying to appear calm, I leaned my forearm against the counter and shifted my weight so my hip was sticking out. Realizing how stupid I looked, I straightened myself and crossed my arms over my chest.

“What the hell am I doing? Am I drill sergeant?” I shook my head, reminding myself he was just an old friend. Granted, a best friend I used to love, but still. Finally relaxing into a somewhat decent pose, I looked up in time to see him round the corner towards us.
He instantly took my breath away.

It had been five years since I had last seen him. Having always been the conspiracy theory type, he never even owned an online profile and believe me, I looked! For the last five years I had relied solely on my memory whenever I thought about him. In my mind, the name Jesse conjured up images of a handsome boy—tall, skinny, with a flop of messy dark hair. The man standing in front of me was not the Jesse I recalled. He was much, much better.

Old Soul or Late Bloomer?

Ever since I was younger, I always felt a bit different than my peers. From preferring books over toys or waking up at 5 am to catch my fave black and white movies, I was an eighty year old woman in a child’s body–

Or so I thought.

Once I hit the infamous 20’s, things completely changed.

Google the words “Twenty Something” and you’ll find a wide array of articles covering everything a 20-something-year-old should know. From advice on what s/he should or should not do, where s/he should travel to, what jobs to take, where to live and what relationships to be in, there is never a loss for the COUNTLESS situations this age group will face. In fact, regardless of the different publications, websites, and authors of these articles there is one common theme–Getting to know yourself.

You see, everyone assumes your teenage years is the time to go out and experiment. It’s the time to fall in love, make mistakes and find yourself. Speaking as someone who is in their thirties and has live through both decades, I’d say it wasn’t my teens but rather my twenties where I truly discovered who I was. The term Quarter-Life crisis is around for a reason. For example, when I was 25 I found myself at a professional crossroads. I spent many nights asking, “Is this what I want to do for the rest of my life?” The same went for my love life as well. And do you know what? This can happen at ANY age.Yes, even this old soul made A LOT of immature mistakes. 24, 25, 26 and yes, even  28 years old–Old souls can be late bloomers, too.

Why am I telling you all this?

Well, I wanted to explain the background behind some of my characters. I’ve been asked why a couple of them seemed unsure of themselves and why they seemed a bit indecisive for someone their age. To put it simply, why aren’t they as “adult” as expected. But what exactly does it mean to be an adult? I’m still finding out and that is why my characters are as they are. They are in fact based somewhat on me.

I am 31 now and I’m still learning A LOT about myself. Sure, I’ve grown up since my yesteryears, but regardless–decision making, mistakes and anxiety does not have an age limit. Stuff happens and sometimes you revert.

I wanted my characters to reflect this so that any of my readers currently going through a Quarter-Life Crisis, Mid-Life crisis or any crisis would know that they are not alone 🙂
