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)
