She was the girl of his dreams…until she brought him home to meet Dad.
They classified this story as a “dark romantic comedy,” which sparked my interest. Reading it, I realized why.
Peter is a high school history teacher in search of Miss Right. Then he meets Beth, who is smart, funny, and beautiful. The two are instantly attracted to each other and start going out. It was a match made in heaven. Now I know why they had the same last name. They actually had the same dad. AHHHH! Turns out the dad has had two families for 25 years. What are the odds?
To defy their father, Peter and Beth decide to move in together, to be a couple without coupling. You didn’t need a crystal ball to know they weren’t going to work. I mean, being a boyfriend/girlfriend while also brother/sister? Ew! It sure is IMPOSSIBLE.
Funny, wry, and candid, this story is a riot!
