Her bag’s packed, hidden under their bed. Stashed inside is money, a ticket and pretty red heels.
Any day now.
Any day.
Decades later, sorting her things, I’ll find her dusty suitcase next to a shoe box
filled with photographs of me.

      1. Thank you. I wanted there to be a relation to pretty red heels in her present that ended up as just a shoe box later on. (The shoe box was what was left of her wish to leave and held her reasons for staying. Or is that pretty obvious? Stop explaining, Amy! :))
