Masterlist / Part One


You had barely moved all of your stuff out of the house before the weight of being a single parent reached your shoulders.

Ever since your twin children turned five, you felt like a single mom, since Thomas was always working or off with his friends at parties and wine-tastings. But now you were out of the house and filing for divorce, you never knew what single parenthood was until now. Now, you have to pay bills and work and take care of your kids. Not to mention that the newspapers and gossip magazines are all trying to get exclusive interviews with you over your divorce from the wealthy lawyer Thomas Jefferson. You, of course, made sure to keep walking and ignore the press and all the emails and shout outs on social media from them. You just needed some peace and goddamn quiet to collect yourself and figure out what to do.

You were laying in bed one late Saturday night when your phone was ringing out of the blue. You were staying with your mother for the time being until you figured out what to do in your predicament. Your children were sleeping in a trundle bed on the floor next to you in a large guest room. You softly crept out of bed and retrieved your cell phone from the desk on the other side of the room. When you saw the caller ID, you were shocked and relieved. You almost didn’t answer the call.

“Peggy?” You whispered into the phone in a disbelief tone.

You heard an ever-familiar giggle come from the other side. “Well, good evening, Mrs. Jefferson.”

Your eye twitched. “Please don’t ever say that again.”

“Sorry! I almost forgot about your situation. I haven’t been keeping up with the gossip down there in Monticello. Lafayette has been giving me updates on Thomas’ public image and how many times he’d mention you and the kids in interviews. You know how love sick Laf is for you.”

You chuckled. Lafayette was a friend of yours that introduced you to Thomas. Lafayette had been in love with you for a long time but realized the mutual connection you shared with Thomas so the Frenchman stood back as a supportive friend and was the one to walk you down the aisle at your wedding since your dad passed away when you were young. Lafayette had always been there but you hadn’t spoken to him since you moved to Virginia with Thomas while you were pregnant.
