Shirley and Glen stayed in the city where she worked. They didn’t travel back to the city where they had lived, where their son was born. They stayed alone together and did a kind of extra honeymoon.Glen was almost back to being himself as they went about the town, and had a lot of love time.
Shirley felt she had it all.
She was married, yet her husband wasn’t there all the time. She had a baby who was someone else’s problem. She had lots of time to herself.
Right now, Glen was wonderful. But she knew, soon enough he’d be sent abroad, do horrific things, return damaged, and she’d have to put him back together.
So far her repair was simply giving him space, not reacting to his behaviour. She wondered how long she could be successful.
