"Hey, do you have any soda left?" Daphne, her sister, asked as she began to open the fridge and look through it.
"Yeah, there's one bottle. You can have it." she answered lost in thought.
"Okay, thanks," she said looking at Mary. She had noticed for a while that Mary wasn't focused on what she was saying. "So, do you wanna talk about it? You're thinking about them. Aren't you?"
"Yeah. Elisha told me that Matthew was getting married in two weeks. She sounded excited. It makes me question whether I was a good mother or not. It has only been two days. How could he move on so fast? I just thought that-you know- maybe he-he would think a little bit more before that but-" Mary explained tearing up slightly.
"Wait. First of all, you were a great parent. And you did everything you could. I don't know about anybody else, but I'm proud of you. He'll regret the mistake he made of leaving you later on."
"Well technically, we discussed it together. It's been only two days but I still miss the kids." she sniffed.
"It's going to be fine. What you need to care about more is getting a new job," encouraged Daphne. "I better get going. I've gotta feed Max."
"Okay." she mumbled getting back into her thoughts.
She walked towards the living room, and layed down on the worn out brown sofa. She was wondering if she would ever get a chance to see her kids again. What if they couldn't manage without her? Were they thinking about her just like how much she thought about them? Have they forgotten about her already? 'No. I need to get a hold of myself.' she told herself. She took a deep breath. Her eyes were already getting heavy. Before she knew it, she drifted off to sleep.
