PREVIEWS

. . .

Just because something looks good, it does not mean that it is good. This is known by each of them as they question the integrity of one another's seeming happiness. All the while, they are questioning their own...

. . .

Life isn't fair. Not only is life not fair, it's just downright cruel. The injustice of it all has been eating away at him, his guilt festering.

. . .

"Our child was in hospital?! And you didn't think to mention anything about that to me?!"

. . .

"You didn't have to be strong through that… I hate the thought of you going through that on your own; suffering on your own. You should have let us help you."

. . .

"Bels... Can that wait for a bit? I need to have a serious conversation with you, first. There's something I need you to know." And in that moment, Will Benjamin learns exactly what it feels like to turn someone's entire world upside down.

. . .

The silence that follows one of Cleo's sharpest statements she's ever uttered in her life leaves Cleo to regret her words and leaves Lewis to worry that despite her words and despite her assurances, maybe everything isn't okay with Cleo.

. . .

If it wasn't for the seriousness, the heartbreak, in her sisters eyes Rikki would have just passed off the shocking statement as a joke from Tam. However, despite how serious Rikki believes her sister is and despite how solemn the mood is between the two, Rikki cannot do anything but stammer, trying to find words to express her shock, her confusion and her total, absolute puzzlement.

. . .

As he sits there playing happy families, his mind is elsewhere, being plagued with guilt after the mention of his former best friend after all these years...

. . .

He can see the heartbreak in her eyes as she blankly looks ahead for several minutes. He doesn't push, he doesn't say a word. Instead, he tries to draw closer to her which instantly makes her escape from her thoughts, returning her to the room where she's just been dealt the blow.

. . .

Within the last few sentences, they both had done what they do best to deal with being hurt; they hurt the other person right back. All the while, the damage and debris from the nasty words brings the issue and their relationship from bad to worse.

. . .

Even though there are a lot of factors in question at the moment, one thing that isn't is his need to support his wife, regardless. He's still got a lot of making up to do in that department.

. . .

Beside her, he looks a little lost too. He's never seen her like this. He's never seen his happy-go-lucky partner facing this much grief, so uncontrollably. All of it is new and unexpected to him. He didn't quite believe that she has been coping, but he had no idea that it has been eating away at her so significantly.

. . .

And just like that, Rikki, Zane and their marriage are all the way back at square one, all over again...

. . .

Looking into his eyes, even as they stand metres apart, she knows whatever he has to say next, whatever impact those words will have, she already knows that she will not like it.

. . .

There is no going back now. There is no way to un-hear it and there is no ideal option.

FFP 3 VIDEO TRAILER

...

I also wanted to let you all know that the video trailer for Far From Perfection 3 is up on YouTube now! I am so proud to be able to share it with you all at last, since I began working on it just over a year ago!

How to watch it? If you are subscribed to me on YouTube (pat on the back, ha ha) then it should automatically show up in your subscriptions page. However if you don't/don't have a YouTube then search 'Far From Perfection 3 Story Trailer' on YouTube and it should be the first option.

So give it a watch and a guess if you want more of a preview of my new story!


And that is the preview! Every quote is an excerpt from here there and everywhere in Far From Perfection 3. In fact, some are from chapters 19/20 that I only wrote in the last week. I left a few names in there to give a few clues, but I did make small modifications to make some quotes more ambiguous and just replaced some names with he/she/them/it.

I've still got to sort out a cover for the next story somehow since I don't have a decent photo editor currently. I'm also thinking about uploading more specific previews for each character's issues but I'm not too sure whether I will do that or not. Is that something that would interest you guys?

I would LOVE to hear your predictions as to what will happen and what you think is being alluded to. Also, what you would like to see! I've only got about 10 chapters left to write, but I might be able to squeeze ideas or anything you want to see in there somewhere!

Also, would you like me to try and post a direct link for the video, if FanFiction will let me?
