Is he married? Excerpt from 'Irresistible You' by Jemma Linley

Is he married?

Mel sat at the table and stared at the computer screen.  Trust Karen to think of that.  At the moment Mel wasn’t particularly bothered about his marital status.  Since the divorce she no longer viewed every man who passed her way as being potentially marriageable.  That’s the trouble with these happily married women, she thought wryly.
She and Karen Foxton had been best friends since High School and even though at eighteen when they left school their ways had parted – she to a secretarial job and Karen to Secretarial College – they had remained friends.  Somewhat against the odds as some of their other friends thought, but probably because they were such complete opposites was Mel’s conclusion.
Whereas she, Mel, had been ambitious and wanted to become a professional singer, all Karen had wanted to do was get married and have a family.  The thought of which for herself had made Mel shudder.
And as she’d now made the marriage mistake she realised that it definitely wasn’t for her.
And here was Karen coming up with what she thought was the all-important question.
Quickly Mel typed in her reply.  Don’t know.  Don’t care.  Not important.
Let Karen make of that what she will, Mel thought grimly before closing down.  She needed to get this place tidied up before Andy arrived.  Not that she had any intention of inviting him in, but one never knows, do one?
