Sample text:

Emily’s boyfriend was going to break up with her. Or, at least that was the impending disaster that all the signs pointed towards.  The worst part? Valentine’s Day was approaching and she had a feeling he would drop the bombshell on one of her favorite holidays.

It had started about two weeks earlier, at the end of January, when Jason had suddenly become quiet and withdrawn. At first Emily had thought he was distracted by work. After all, he seemed to be taking a lot of extra emails and calls at night in their home office, and his tech firm had always demanded long hours. So, she wasn’t immediately concerned when he’d disappear to his desk all evening. However, other foreboding signs soon began to pile up.

For the first time, he had forbidden her from touching his computer in the office. In fact, he had started locking the door! This was particularly annoying since her sewing machine was in that room, and he had completely blocked her from quilting.

He had also started sneaking away from the house during the weekend and refusing to say where he was going. He would slip out of bed early in the morning, and creep away out the garage door. If she caught him, he would say he was going on a run. However, he never seemed to be wearing his running shoes.

Worst of all, she had noticed the money in their savings account decreasing in small increments. He kept making up excuses for “money emergencies”, such as forgetting to pack his lunch and having to eat out, but it seemed like a lot of cash was suddenly gone.  The idea that he had developed a sudden and serious cocaine habit was becoming an uncomfortable possibility.
