Against better judgement

Kara-Lynne lives in New York City as a writer for People Magazine. Fresh out of college, writing for People has never been the job of her dreams. She's hardly given thought-provoking assignments and when Kara's given the task to publish a story on popular, pretty-boy and charming 'love expert' Ryan Barre, she expects it to be a simple assignment. However, she realises very quickly that things are far from simple with Ryan.


11. A Year Later

Will and Kara would never say it but they would both agree that they got on amazingly well for people who had just met. Perhaps their new friendship could have blossomed into something more but neither was willing to start something that would inevitably end. Besides barely knowing each other, both knew that long distance relationships took more than zeal to maintain.

The next morning, Will had texted Kara to invite her to breakfast. She agreed to meet him at the airport since it was her day off, well-earned after Janine had approved her article that she had to grit her teeth through. Although she hoped otherwise, she expected Ryan to join them. After all, it was implied since Will and Ryan were taking the same flight back to England. Besides, she wanted things to end with Ryan amicably instead of having a nagging feeling that she could have done something to get rid of the awkwardness between them.

Before they bade farewell, they exchanged emails so that Kara could share the article as soon as it was approved for publishing. The article had gone over well with People readers. Ryan and Will had gained many more fans, in part attributed to Kara's coverage.

That was about a year ago. 

Unbeknownst to Ryan, Will and Kara had kept in touch. Their friendship only grew stronger as Kara updated him about her career progression and he asked for her input on potential video ideas. She was no longer writing for People. She had had a great time, having the opportunity to interview celebrities, social media stars and gained invaluable experience by being exposed to 'colourful' personalities.

Kara had watched their videos, mostly fascinated by the 'advice' but quietly impressed by the production value. Will told her about starting a new relationship with a childhood friend that he'd bumped into a month after he returned to England and visited his hometown. 

On the other side of the pond, Will was happy for Kara when she told him that she'd finally gone on a date with the local coffee shop barista. Things were going well with him, he seemed like a decent guy.

Regardless of how much she enjoyed writing, eventually constructing emails became laborious since she had to do lots of that for her new job. Gaining some inspiration from Will and Ryan, she created a new YouTube channel to periodically publish unedited videos that served as life updates for Will to watch. Eventually, Ryan caught wind of her videos and subscribed, occasionally commenting on her videos. He too was doing well and had been in one relationship. It was short lived but ended on good terms.

Through her videos was how Ryan and WIll learned that Kara would be flying to London soon for a business trip. The trio found it funny. The British duo had offered to pick her up from the airport. However, that was paid for, along with her accommodation expenses. Yet, she agreed that for the weekend before she left, she would allow Ryan and Will to take her around London so that they could have their turn at giving her as much of the tourist experience as possible.
