The Two Olive Martini

by Lance Weil

This is the story of Gail Sheppard and Sean Pierce, a couple who divorced early in life due to infidelity and unbecoming behaviors. They remarry, but unhappily so. Twenty-six years later, after several near misses, Gail recaptures Sean as the two estranged lovers find themselves the last to board the same airplane. Gail was always the adult, Sean, the wayward child. Has he grown enough to allow a forgiving Gail to keep him?
Back in the day, a woman would signal potential suitors by how many olives she placed in her martini. One olive meant single or available. Two olives meant married and unavailable. Three olives meant married and available. Barely escaping a death sentence from cancer and estranged from his second family, Sean finds himself broke and without resources—until a magical fortuity. Twenty-six years after their divorce, he and a now twice divorced Gail bump into each other in the airport, the last passengers to board the same flight. Gail is the beautiful wind Sean kicks himself for driving away when he was young, stupid, and selfish. Sean is the passionate lover Gail misses, needing his trust, strength, and spontaneity now more than ever. When a family emergency requires them to work together, Sean relapses into his old selfish self. This forces Gail to decide how many olives to place in her martini. Sean still has a lot to learn. Gail is willing to teach him but is unwilling to repeat the past. Will Sean redeem himself and make worthy his contributions to their newfound love? Does Gail have the patience to rebuild their union?
