I do have a question for anyone who might be reading... What do you think of the following plot? An older woman, okay not that old, late 30's, emails some pictures to a young (early 20's), male classmate, so he can put together a slideshow of a group project. When he took the pictures using her camera, he saw some racy photos that she deleted but did not know to erase. She knows he saw them, because she saw one of them as he was taking the pictures and made an excuse to take the camera. Not thinking he could retrieve prior pics from those, since she did not see the old ones on her computer, she emails the pictures from the group project.
Later, she is blackmailed with the same pictures, and she suspects not only him, but the lover to whom she meant to send the pics, and the co-worker she believes (because there was a witness) stole her picture card and flash drive. There is also a 'mystery' hacker who could have accidentally found her pictures while looking for account numbers. Believing her entire life could be ruined for these photos, she turns detective and survives a series of adventures that include trusting her co-workers to take her to the hospital where she is strapped down in an ambulance and driven to a nuthouse. She goes along with their diagnosis, "psychotic, bipolar mania," and takes the medicine (which doubles in strength by the end of her stay) for the 7 nights she is there. Even signs a paper saying she admitted herself voluntarily; played their game in order to get out.
When she gets out, she realizes the meds are making her crazy for real and quits them. But she has lost her job - while two of the co-workers who took her to the hospital get promoted. She tries to figure out what she needs to do to get her job back, but they want nothing to do with her. Throughout all of this, her husband has been riding the fence. He has slipped up a few times, let her know that he knew more than he ever wanted to tell, especially about his affairs that she had suspected him of having. Her lover was nowhere during her abduction, waited for the storm to settle before he would make any serious attempt at contacting her. The college student and the mystery hacker have been quiet, but she feels their presence as she continues to solve her mystery.
The woman ignores amorous emotions while she works, especially in the weeks before she is captured. Only after she decides that she must try to live as normally as possible does she begin to realize that she had made a real connection with a man online. Her heart is tougher than it used to be, but she wonders whether the feelings are as real for him. She is afraid to ask him. I won't tell you the ending I have thought of, but I am working on a good one.
