Bryan popped in one day as a surprise. She was ecstatic. She wanted to be angry, she wanted to say so many things. But she didn’t. She plunged into being with him.
Touching him, loving him, hearing his voice. She thought…but he only spent the weekend, then had to get back.
He asked her to come with him.
Here is the mistake. Here is the first mistake.
Here is the moment when she makes the biggest mistake of her life.
Bryan asked her to come with him. Marla, annoyed that he’d been gone so long, and only came back for this brief reunion, refused.
