Erin chose “loot” when Chris, her former husband, competed for her hand against the god of money. Now, eight years after leaving him, with a promotion within reach, she is poised to take her place among the elite of Wall Street and she must have someone to care for her children.
She has few options, and she concludes she must beg Chris for his help. She has not talked with Chris since leaving him, but if she cannot convince him to help her, she will lose her promotion. Her dream of wealth will vanish.
She fears if she asks Chris to care for their children for the summer, she will be drawn back into his world. She will lose her drive to succeed and everything for which she has been working. If he does not help her, her promotion will be denied, and lightning will not strike a second time. How can she send their children to live with him without becoming entangled herself?
