For two weeks, Maggie text about her deepest feelings and thoughts. She also tells her mom about her coworker and his awesome butt. Imagine her shock when she receives a text back from her mother’s lines.

It turns out that the number had been reassigned. For those two weeks, Maggie’s raw messages had been read by a stranger named Chase Beckett.
