Single by Saturday by Catherine Bybee : Character Top 5 Lists and Excerpt



Top Item on Your Bucket List

Karen wants to own and operate a shelter for runaway teenagers.  It’s her only goal or Bucket List item. After living the elite lifestyle with one of Hollywood’s best known actors for over a year, she’s driven in fancy cars and had plenty of vacations. Now all she wants to do is settle down and run a sanctuary for abandoned or runaway kids.

Top 5 Things That Absolutely Drive You Insane
1.      Parents abusing their children. Nothing get’s Karen more upset than learning how a parent has screwed with their kid.

2.      People who don’t want to help those in need.

3.      Ignorance and prejudice.  

4.      LA Traffic… because lets face it. LA Traffic sucks.

5.      Birds.  It doesn’t matter if a bird is big or small, she hates all birds and always has.

Top 5 Things You Enjoy Most

1.      Helping kids achieve their goals. Karen volunteers at a Boys and Girls Club and plans to open a sanctuary after her brief ‘arranged’ marriage to Michael Wolfe.

2.      Solid friendships. Her parents left her early in life, so her friendships are something she cherishes the most.

3.      Party planning. Though she might argue with this one…Karen does love a good party and knows exactly how to throw one.

4.      Laughing. With so many reasons to cry, laughing is one of her favorite past times.

5.      Looking at Zach, her brother-in-law. It’s taboo, but she can’t seem to help herself.

This man was gorgeous, and if she were one to believe in instant attraction, her body responded to him with a fierceness she didn’t think possible. Maybe this was what the women gazing at Michael experienced that she did not. This wild thrill of discovery that led to possibilities only the big screen could fulfill.

Instead of letting her imagination get the best of her, Karen flattened a hand over her stomach and attempted to act unaffected. “Do I know you?” 

The sex personified blue-eyed man stepped toward her. It took effort for her to hold her ground. 

Sensing her unease, he held still, looked around the both of them as if noticing the caterers running about and guests arriving behind him, and said simply, “Zach Gardner.” 

The smile on her face stayed. The name tickled at the edges of her consciousness. Memories flashed behind the veil of her mind until she narrowed her focus. “Michael’s brother?” she whispered. 

Zach gave a small nod and swept his eyes down her frame. When his eyes met hers again, he masked whatever he’d been thinking, then he smiled and said, “And you’re the wife none of us have met.” 

Not a lot shook Karen. She’d managed the role of Michael’s wife under the ever-present scrutiny of paparazzi, producers, actors, and fans . . . but the man standing in front of her did what no one else could. He made her question her decision to marry.
