An unusual hotel romance. A young man with nothing but trouble on his hands from his ex-girlfriend. This work of free short fiction reveals all the harrowing and comic results of dysfunctional romance in the extreme.
18-year-old Billy Maddox is heading to Tucson’s Motel 6 for what promises to be a fun evening of hotel romance with his ex-girlfriend. Their romp, however, quickly turns south as Darla Littlefield’s penchant for trouble-making steers Billy on a collision course with law enforcement.
As the full extent of their dysfunctional romance materializes before his eyes, Billy realizes he needs to make a course correction quickly. It doesn’t help that his friend Jessica Duncan, whom he can’t stop thinking of, remains a source of jealousy for Darla, whose lack of self-control knows no bounds.
Will things end well for Billy? Who can tell?
