Standing Up Again
Chapter 8- Epilogue
After breaking up with Orin Audrey had never felt so much elation. Upon getting home from work that day she immediately telephoned her family and told them about her ordeal. She did not want them to be kept in the dark about how Orin had been treating her much longer. Her father and sisters were no doubt delighted that she had overcome the abuse. She only prayed that things would be happy for them eventually. She was actually quite scared to go visit because she was afraid of having to deal with her mom's abusive ways. Audrey's parents would eventually divorce and her father and sisters moved to Boston to be closer to Mr. Fullerton's family. Audrey's mother would eventually drink herself into a coma and die.
With Orin completely out of the picture, Seymour and Audrey were able to progress their relationship to the next level. Audrey would later get her G.E.D and go to study social work at NYU to later become a therapist for children from abusive families. She and Seymour would eventually marry and have children of their own only going back to Skid Row every once in awhile to visit Crystal Chiffon and Ronette. They figured that going to Skid Row would harbor bad memories they did not want to deal with. Mushnik's Skid Row Florists eventually closed and Mr. Mushnik moved to Hilton Head South Carolina to retire. He is now an avid golfer. Audrey and Seymour now own their own flower shop called Krelborne's Flowers and Candies in East Northport New York.
As for Orin, Health and Human Services eventuatly caught up to his illegal dental practices and shut his office down. With no family or friends in New York he moved Las Vagas and became a hotel worker. He never got over how poorly he treated Audrey and was never able to get into another relationship with another woman. He would eventually die alone.
