It had been months since they broke up, neither of them had wanted to leave each other, but Carol had to face the deadly consequences of her actions.
Her husband loved her too much and had trouble letting her go. Her loveless marriage felt like she was trapped in a big ball of fire. She had to fight for a divorce and through a dreadful custody battle.
Was her husband really a better parent? He seemed controlling, not to mention aggressive and forceful, but Carol was unfit for motherhood because she engaged in this different romance.
Carol had to accept that her husband would keep her child and she could be free. It took her an awfully long time to come to terms with this new arrangement because she loved her little daughter dearly. Her daughter had to be as strong as an iron princess while her mother was sent away.
Therese had tried to call Carol many times. She had continued laboring over her photographs and made a portfolio about her relationship with Carol. She treasured a photograph of Carol in a lovely fur coat.
She didn’t know if Carol was ready to try again, but she decided to take the chance and meet her for dinner anyway. They had barely starting talking, when Therese was called away to a party and she started having second thoughts. Could she trust Carol again? But if she didn’t take a chance now, she would lose her chance for life. She spotted Carol’s familiar smirk and knew they could start over once more.
