1 – BPOV
Looking around my empty apartment, I knew I was doing the right thing.
I was done with Chicago.
There was nothing there for me anymore.
I had grown tired of city life and raising my daughter, Emily, on my own.
Riley's parents had moved on and I needed to do the same for my daughter's sake as well as mine.
Four years of mourning a love that never was had only served to make me older and bitter.
I needed the stability of familiarity and family around me.
So, looking towards a brighter future, I held my five year old daughter's hand and closed the door behind us.
Future chapters are longer... so who's with me? :o)
