When Olive and Zander had gone with her son, Shirley took a hot bath. She let all the thoughts hidden behind smiles and sweet words come pouring out.
She began to appreciate that marrying Glen may have been a mistake. Having a husband who spent as much time away as home was not easy. Being a new mother, so young, so inexperienced and unready, was even harder.
Locked in a small flat, having taken maternity leave, meaning no work to go to, made life unlivable.
With Zachery gone to her sister’s, with her body getting back in shape, (the gym was priority) she was feeling as she had before she married.
Shirley was feeling young and free and happy, looking forward to tomorrow.
