A life goes by,
Romantic dreams must die.
So I bid my goodbye
And never knew.
So close, was waiting,
Waiting here with you.
And now, forever, I know
All that I wanted
to hold you so close.

Muse A is a therapist stuck in a marriage of ten years that had long since lost its spark. Muse B is an award winning novelist suffering from depression and trying to figure out what’s missing in their life. When Muse B’s editor notices, they demand Muse B see a therapist and the best one in town — who happens to be the very therapist who’s stuck in a loveless marriage.

The first session is rocky as Muse B doesn’t want to be there but the others make them more comfortable not just with the sessions but with each other. Muse A is almost starstruck the moment Muse B sits on the couch as they’ve always been a big fan of Muse B’s work. However, as the sessions go on, the untouched Muse A starts to become enraptured by the novelist and soon after so does Muse B with Muse A. The two start a passionate and deep affair that stays confined to the small office.
