The Trash Bin of Cliches

This is a series of shorts about the life of established author, Willow Parker.

Whilst living in London with her best friend Kennedy, Willow gets writer's block. Something she deals with by getting, what was supposed to be a temp job, at The Agency: a company that is invested in a bunch of media industry fields. While helping out with a photo shoot Willow meets one of the world's most coveted bachelors, Sawyer Huntington, one of the boys from the internationally popular group Once Upon.

Thanks to one of her new model friends, Yvonne, Sawyer gets his hooks into her and she wakes up after a night of partying with someone else's boxers on. After that it's one thing after another, starting again when Once Upon books their new music video shoot with The Agency. When she is mistaken for an extra and Sawyer picks her to play the opposing role in his scene, sparks fly, now all Willow has to do is try not to catch fire.


6. Baby Steps: 16th October 2011


Sawyer chuckles as he sees what comes up on the screen. His band mate, Henry, playfully punching his arm, a wide smile spreading across his face. Fiona, the interviewer, shakes her head.  

“Alright,” she says with a British accent that goes along with the boys, “here comes the loaded question as you all know, relationships. Now Henry, I know you said there was no one special earlier, any change in that?”   

She’s stalling for time for Sawyer, it’s obvious as she turns her full attention to Henry. He sighs, wishing he could help. “Not in the last 5 minutes that I can think of, unless you count the beautiful lass asking the questions.” He winks at her, charming as ever, his true Irish accent creeping into the British one he’s gotten from hanging around his friends for so long.   

“Alright, that leaves you Sawyer, time to tell us about your mystery girl,” she sounds a bit flustered by Henry’s compliments but hardly shows it, “There is no denying that the girl we’ve seen in the tabloids with you is the same one that you share a steamy kiss with at the end of your new music video. What do you have to say about that?”  

“I say,” Sawyer pauses, a mischievous smile as he connects eyes with the redhead across the booth, she‘s pretty enough, looks like an intern to the radio station, “She’s not what everyone expects her to be by far.”  

“So there is a girl then Sawyer?” Fiona’s lost all the fluster from Henry’s previous comments and is smiling graciously at Sawyer as if he just gave her the best present in the world.  

“Yes,” he ducks when Henry tries to ruffle his hair, “there is a girl.”
