           Taylor Hastings Reed Banner


          “Speaking of, I got a belated birthday card from Taylor the other day.”

          “Really?  What is she up to these days?”  Morgan raised an eyebrow.  Talk about a blast from the past.  She didn’t think they still kept in touch.

    – Jared & Morgan – The Final Play

Name:                 Dr. Taylor Hastings-Reed

Occupation:      Neurosurgeon

 Ex-Wife of:       Jared Reed         

Where I Live:     Chicago, Illinois


      Being a doctor keeps me plenty busy but that doesn’t stop me from contemplating the road not taken.  I haven’t seen my ex, Jared, since the divorce was finalized but he’s been on my mind lately.  Sometimes I forget why we broke up.  Ah, that’s right.  He said I was selfish and I told him he was too attached to his family.  The Reeds are very nice but I never felt like I fit in. It’s no secret Morgan and I never clicked but I did enjoy talking to Sydney and Alicia.  

      Mutual friends of ours say he’s really busy with his architecture firm.  There was a time when I worried about him. Things didn’t end well and I thought he’d retreat into himself.  He was always so serious and kept things bottled inside. That was one of the things I found absolutely maddening about him.  But I hear through the grapevine that he’s dating again.  Nothing serious, but he bounced back faster than I thought he would. 

         I sent Jared a birthday card in The Final Play. I knew that would get his attention.  I don’t like dwelling on the past but there are days when I could kick myself for letting him go.  That’s why I settled in Chicago.  There was no way I was going to run into him there.  I’ll be seeing my ex-husband in Stranded in Paradise.  I hope he’s ready to see me.  We have a lot of catching up to do.

See you soon,
