It took me quite a while to narrow down my ideas, however with a borrowed ear and some time, this story beat out the others. Titled “Where You Belong” is a story about twins Margot and Lena. Growing up with a strict mother and father who treated their family like a revolving door, Margot decides to follow the rules. Getting into private schools to appease their mother and later on taking on the ivy leagues. Whereas Lena took the rebel, misunderstood route. Falling in with the wrong crowd, but momentarily seeming to clean up her act when she falls in love and gets married.
Sadly, happy times don’t last forever. Ten years flash by and Margot finds herself in a pleasant place between her life and career. On the verge of an engagement and promotion, Margot feels on top of the world. Until one night Lena shows up on her doorstep. This time is different. She has a daughter, a daughter she wants Margot to adopt.
With no option but to step up and be the person Lena needs her to be, will Margot crack under all the pressure? Will her plans come to a grinding halt? When the dust finally settles, will Margot finally realize that conventional is overrated?
While this is still very much a work in progress, I am very excited to post sneak peeks about it!
