Claudia didn’t know where it went wrong. They’d been together for years but she wasn’t in love with him.
They hadn’t had sex in two years and she felt dry, unloved. They didn’t even touch.
She longed for the warmth of another body against hers, to touch her and ignite the fire inside that had long gone out.

When he asked her out for dinner, Claudia went along for the ride.
