Summary: What if you could do high school all over again? How would you do things differently? Would you change everything? This is the tale of a mid-twenties life crisis met with some mischief magic.
"Four years you think for sure
That's all you've got to endure
All the total dicks
All the stuck up chicks
So superficial, so immature
Then when you graduate
You take a look around and you say HEY WAIT
This is the same as where I just came from
I thought it was over"
~High School Never Ends, Bowling for Soup
A Wish upon Promiscuity
Introduction- Meet Taylor Carmichael
Taylor Carmichael was a relatively unremarkable woman. Her clothes were crisp and clean. Her hair and nails were both neat and short. Her job, also unexceptional, had her answering calls at a lawyer's office day in and day out. It was not a bad job; however, it was drone work that held little in the way of imagination, self-fulfillment, or any particular importance. Taylor was in her mid-twenties, she held a bachelor's degree in English, and occasionally, she enjoyed a nice book. Even her name, Taylor Carmichael, was not extraordinary or unusual in anyway.
She was not unattractive in any particular way, but she did little to enhance herself. Her makeup consisted of facial powder and simple beige lip stick, while her wardrobe was full of muted colors, basic business suits, and plain black flats. Her daily jewelry comprised of only a black leather watch and pearl stud earrings.
Aside from her wardrobe, the rest of Taylor's life was just as mundane. She did not have close friends, a boyfriend, or even a pet. She spent evenings and weekends watching Law and Order and Grey's Anatomy by herself. In essence, there was little about Taylor Carmichael that might set her apart from anyone else. She melded perfectly into the background in all things, where she found herself more than comfortable.
There was no zest or spark in Taylor Carmichael's life. When invited to office parties or any other social gathering, she would politely decline. She did not feel like she had much to offer anyone else, which was true for the time being. Her life was isolated and uneventful.
Taylor Carmichael might have gone on living, if you could term it that, this way for years. In fact, she probably would have gone on this way until the day she took her final breath. However, this is not the story of how Taylor Carmichael lived and died a monotonous life. This is the story of why Taylor Carmichael did not continue living this way. This is the story of how Taylor Carmichael got a miraculous second chance and fell in love with life.
A/N: I know that this is short, but I just wanted to get the idea out here to see if anyone was interested. This is not a romance in the traditional sense. It's more about how being romanced by living. I do promise that there will be juiciness and possibly even a main love interest. Show me love if you want to know more! -Kate
