Storyline

Rob and Laura put aside all else for one evening after Rob tells her that he has finished the manuscript for his first book. He hopes Laura will read the manuscript while he watches her, nervously trying to gage her reaction, but she'll have none of that. As Laura starts reading, she is excited to learn that the book is the story of their life, and she begins to reminisce about the situations written. Regardless of Laura's reaction, Rob is equally as anticipatory about the reaction of the publisher to whom he sent the manuscript. Written by Huggo / edited by statmanjeff
