What happens when two exes have to live in an apartment built for one?
Steven and Mariah were once lovers, but working in professional theater doesn’t make a love affair easy, or even possible for many who find themselves all over the world on tours. Working on a stage show in New York City, Steven sublets Mariah’s barely-big-enough-for-one apartment. What are they to do when her world tour shuts down as well as his show?
They can’t go anywhere else, so they’ll just have to stay together.
Published in short story sized sections, “Sublet” will give you a love story in several acts and, hopefully, leave you calling for an encore at the end! ALL five parts of the story are in this file, so if you’ve read Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4, select Part 5 to continue!

She felt his presence at her shoulder and spoke before she could think better of it and change her mind, “Do you remember why we…why we fell apart?”
Something swelled in her throat as she waited for his answer. Something timid and deathly curious at the same time crept over her shoulders and trailed up through the nape of her neck.
She shouldn’t have asked the question at all because she was afraid to find out the answers. “Maybe it’s been too long.”
His hands settled on her shoulders. His fingers gripped her gently. Securely.
Mariah couldn’t tell if she’d leaned back against him, or if he had stepped closer, but either way, she had him against her back.
There was something about his warmth, holding her, bringing her flush against him that stirred up more than old memories. It stirred up real, current feelings.
