There is one part of my story I was hoping to brainstorm with you... Without giving too much away, my character meets a love interest while attending a ‘victims of crime’ support group. He is understanding and she feels she can relate to him on a different level to her other love interest in the story. At the group one week, they are told that one of their members has died of an overdose (or something). Her love interest in absent so she goes to his home after the meeting to inform him of the news and to seek his comfort. When she arrives at his house, she overhears him talking. She realises he is actually an undercover cop (or something) and already knows about the girls death. Just as he notices her standing at his front door she runs away. That’s where it’s at for the moment. I know it sounds cliché and cheesy but it’s just a sub plot I am thinking of developing. I don’t want him to be a bad guy. I just want a small twist in the story to have space between the other more confronting issues … He could be in protective services but then how would she develop a friendship with him if his eye was on someone else. He could be investigating perpetrators targeting vulnerable women in the area??? He doesn’t have to be a cop at all, I just want him to have lied about his true identity and free her up for the other love interest. But she has to know where he lives and if he’s involved in anything too heavy he’s not likely to be showing people his home, right? I would love to hear your ideas….
